Hobby: Women Here is a man who believes, with some other great men, that the pen is mightier than the sword and that flowing ink is more effective than hot air. We are half inclined to trust in his methods. He doesn ' t make much noisy noise but he gets there just the same. He has been the chief instrument in the resurrection and drafting of more consti- tutions and by-laws than any other man in school and he has held some of the highest offices that student organizations command.

Op- portunity and canoes mean about the same thing. Heine — why repeat yourself? Heine has a queer combination of seriousness and jolly good nature. His laugh makes you laugh with him. He and Bruner laughing would make anyone laugh in sympathy. Heine has lots of push and pep. He is a mem- ber of both the Physics and the Chem. Clubs and is President of the latter. He never bothers with " stuff " like poetry — he leaves that to the women. But when he speaks of canoeing we wonder whether maybe Heine might not like poetry, too. Robert Bordner B. S.

Hobby: Hobnobbing with the Three Skulls Aiw Here we have the only man who has ever majored for a solid year in Campustry and then become a confirmed misogynist. The why and the wherefore of it all is inexplicable, but after hav- ing helped to hold down the front steps of Buch- tel Hall for a whole year, he suddenly turned from his worship of the fair and embraced the intellec- tual pleasures of literature. Now he may be dis- covered almost any evening sitting back in a deep leather chair with an old French Briar between his teeth, delving into the mysteries of ancient Pagan religious rites, The Dabistan, modern plays or American short stories. Bob started in at the Engineering School; but, finding that he could not learn to chew tobacco, he came up to the Arts College and — somehow — man- aged to retain his peculiar faculty for passing up work without classifying in it. Bob has developed a peculiar process of intake and exhaust which be- comes audible when he is much pleased. Perhaps, some day, when you are in a strange place, you may happen to hear a noise that sounds like a donkey taking his morning vocal exercise. If you do, you can turn around and fully expect to see — our old friend and student — Bob Bordner. — ' AV Hr W m lUm- 58 Vvarren I. Brockett B. S.

He has upset every rule of na- ture. Warren is of such a retiring nature that ' ' Daddy " Egbert didn ' t know him after having him in class for a year. Red looks a little wild but he is really mild when thoroughly known. Warren G. never overexerts himself except when il comes to fleecing the freshmen. As a chem. handbook and slide rule magnate he can ' t be beaten. But was his work all in vain? We have never seen him use his double-action-triple- compound slipstick. Perhaps there is a reason. As a student he never was one to warm the cockles of Dean Spanton ' s heart. He is an outstanding example of the efficiency of silence, especially when it comes to using Yeast Foam in chemistry experiments. A mild-tempered red-head. What a Paradox!

He is a likable chap withal; not too studious, yet always getting by; not a lounge lizzard, yet quite at home in a dress suit. When he was football manager he was not above putting on muddy moleskins and scrapping with the varsity. Harold rose to fame when he became Capt. of the B. O. T. C. in 1920. As a modern Napoleon, marshalling his fish club across the campus, he knew no fear. We believe he slept with an I. D. B. under his pillow. 60 L f Liriam Rachel Caftron B. S. in H. E.

We are sorry to say that Frances left us in her last year — she couldn ' t go deep enough into the study of Biological specimens here — so she went to a hospital in Cleveland to work with raw material. Frances is a chronic secretary, having been sec- retary of four different organizations on the campus. Some say shr is preparing for a life sec- retaryship to a well-known Buchtelite. She threw a fit because last year ' s Tel-Buch announced her engagement before she threw her party. Now she ' s called the party off.

Where we expected to find a vamping, winking, shimmer- ing, shrinking doll with eyes like saucers and cheeks as red as the first bud that peeks from our buttonhole on May-day, we find instead a real, honest-to-goodness human being, as much Ameri- can as any of us, and one who has turned out to be a loyal Buchtelite. Mimi leaves us this year to do what she wants most to do — to go back to Paris. Next years she hopes to study at the Sorbonne in Paris and then — who knows — we may expect to see her on our own campus as a teacher of French. 64 Stanford D. Close B. S.

Here before you is the king of story tellers. Nowhere among the famous knights and ladies of our castle on the hill will you find such a teller of tales. Whisperings are abroad doubt- ing the veracity of certain of these stories. But the prestige of this mighty teller of talcs who hails from a country far to the north of us — a whole hour by the red steed which gallops on an iron roadway — is so great and he brings so many others of his clan with him that we of milder tem- perament never question the verity of his mighty ballads. Diet is a long, narrow, quiet and dignified En- gineer. He is a good student and especially dotes on Professor Boger ' s courses. The Board of Control owes a great deal to Diet. He is a live wire in all that is of interest to our Engineering School. normal training in a notorious girls ' school over He doesn ' t look like that kind of a fellow.

Clande showed up to good advantage when foot- ball season opened last fall and succeeded in mak- ing a place for himself on the team.

Hobby: Reading High Brow Literature Rosalind — the very name recalls to us the work of Shakespeare. It has a fleeting sense of romance about it and a suggestion of thought and reason, of study and research for knowledge. There is a lightness about it, too, that takes away the feeling of dryness which comes from all study and no play. This is our Rosalind. In her there is the old passion for learning which we read of in the time of Shakespeare, the passion that was the Renais- sance. She is one of the kind of students that Dean Spanton would like everyone to be. We don ' t know why, but Rosalind majored in Home Eco- nomics. Maybe she knew too much Lit. to bother with the courses our profs, have to offer. Where do you find Rosalind? Go over to the Library any afternoon and you ' ll see her buried in a novel or a drama, it may be in English, German or Erench. If you don ' t find her there, look for Luise Kraus.

Hobby: Wine, Women and Song? [We doubt it] " Straight from Fox " has come to mark the au- thenticity of a persistent rumor. More wild tales start from his fertile mind and active tongue than from any six others in school. The impossible has no place in Fox ' s line. He is the master of them all in his chosen field. Next to starting a baseless rumor his chief de- light is in a dissected specimen in biology labora- tory. It is rumored — " Straight from Fox " — that he has a cat ranch in Kenmore which is run for him by his old friend, the barkeep of the Green Turtle. Fox is an enthusiast. Everything he does is done to the limit of his ability. His gravity never fal- ters, his seriousness in the midst of wild rumors is astonishing — he almost makes himself believe his weird tales.

Besides — sssh — the bookstore is some little depository for scandal. Even Marie speaks to him only in French. Earl has for some time been a side-kick to Pro- fessor Howe in the English Dept. Perhaps that is where he obtained the extraordinary vocabulary that helped him, as attorney for the plaintiff, to win the case — Denison vs Williams — in American Government. Last summer Earl followed the advice of Horace Greeley, only to find that pitchforks and chiggers were uninviting, so he returned early and became a pitcher in the Epworth League. 73 Isa ICeck B.

Helen and Luise should have traded for a year for the sake of Luise. Luise is a side-kick to Rosalind and the two together certainly make up an intellectual pair. Some think, however, that Luise has gone bugs this last semester for she persists in working over- time in Bacteriology Lab. Rosalind maintains that this commendable habit is only one of the more evi- dent outward manifestations of her scholarly at- titude.

Then — if Emmer ever gets on the wrong side of our case — well — " we ' re done for, " that ' s ' all. The cinder path is one of Emmer ' s favorite haunts. When he starts in a race he throws off all anchorage. He loves to watch his opponent ' s feet for a while and then ask " What ' s the matter, big boy? ' Fraid to stretch your muscles? " Then, at the end of the stretch, he scoots ahead and pro- ceeds to kick ashes in his gasping opponent ' s face. That ' s what you call a dirty trick; but at the end Emmer will be heard whistling.

The class had hopes of uncovering some of the present-day genealogical mysteries but after continued efforts had to give them up because Raymond could not be made to talk about himself. Naturally everyone was agreeably surprised when " Sphinx " came out of his hole and proved that he was a gifted orator when the Senior Ashton Prize contest was staged. " Sphinx ' s chief work, however, has been in the chemistry department where he proved to be a steady and consistent worker. We hear, though, to be an ambassador to Barcelona, be with you, Raymond. 81 Helen JVlc Bride Osterhouse A. B. M, 5 A " Her air, her manners, all who saw ad- mired; Courteous, tho eoy, and gentle, tho re- tired; The joy of youth and health her eyes displayed; And ease of heart her every look con- veyed. " — Crabbe Class Secretary, ' 21; Junior Repre- sentative Woman ' s League, ' 20. Hobby: Taking Public Speaking? Helen is another student of the type the Dean wants us all to be. Her quiet, patient work has been duly rewarded by her election to Phi Sigma Alpha this year. Some think that Helen has been studying in the wrong school — that she should be in Curtiss School instead of Buchtel College. Helen ' s silence is not to be misjudged. Although she is known to us as the smiling assistant in the Library, it seems that some young man in Cleveland has a great monopoly. Perhaps she is not so much wrapped up in her work as she seems. At any rate, we congratulate you on many things, Helen. May you ever possess " that ease of heart, " etc., etc. 82 vvilham Arthur Rowley A. B.

Hobby: Bein ' Friends Some men are the fortunate possessors of such a likeable disposition that they can claim all as friends. And if anyone qualifies, " Lamps " surely does. Of calm, even temperament, he never was known to rise in his wrath as do most of us. Perhaps, though, it is because his thoughts are far away, that he passes over lesser troubles. At any rate, the day is brighter when the mail man brings a pale blue envelope with a California post- mark and a tiny " E. B. " in the corner. It ' s a long Irip, " Bill. " Track and tennis are " Bill ' s " sports — he gets a nice trip to Columbus every year when he goes to the Big Six meet. The rest of the year he spends his time in front of the fire at the fraternity house and builds castles in the flames. 83 Robert U. Sawyer B. S. " Bob " n k e " A second Homer I would be Of romance wrote in major key; But such the nature of my art That I must play a humbler part, Because, alas, I ' m only me. " — From Bob ' s Notebook Biology Club, ' 19, ' 20, ' 21; Chemistry Club, ' 19, ' 20, ' 21; Physics Club, ' 21. Hobby: Raising anything that grows or don ' t grow — i. e.: Moustaches. Here is the living example of a bookworm come to life. The fact that Bob is a bookworm is not to be held against him, for he has accumulated a store of queer knowledge that would put Houdini and Omar K. M. both in the shade. Bob has a number of accomplishments. He drives a Ford coupe; he was in Sefton ' s awkward squad when the Student Battalion was first formed; he has a highly cultivated appreciation for good literature and he has the most original and striking ideas concerning natural phenomena of anyone on the campus. He has been charac- terized as a queer genius and the funniest duckling in class. Dreaming is Bob ' s favorite pastime, but he never dreamed of shaving until his senior year, when someone gave him a razor for Christmas. Today the razor is as g ood as new. There are one or two other things that we should say about Bob, viz. : he has a faculty for drawing grades of 100% on Physics tests, and, the better you know him the better you realize what you ' ve missed by not knowing him sooner. 84 Li JYL. Elaine Smith B. S. in H. E. 2 A © " One would call her friend and sister, sweet Elaine, Would listen for her coming and regret Her parting step. " — Tennyson Home Economics Club. Hobby: Teaching at Central ? Elaine is well named — indeed if she were gold- en-haired one could well read Tennyson ' s " Lance- lot and Elaine " for a description of her. Like Elaine, " the Maid of Astolot, " our Elaine is faith- ful, conscientious, ever helpful and k ind, and, withal, modest and quiet. There are many of us who don ' t appreciate Elaine — for we haven ' t known her. She has hid her light under a bushel, it seems, and only the few who have been close enough to see the light shining through the cracks know what a jolly good sport she is. She ought to spend more time with us — we would all like to know her better. 85 Harold Laverne Snyder B. S. A X A " Founded on the good old plan, A true and brave and downright honest man. " — Whittiei? " So true his heart, so smooth his speech. " — MlCKLE Tennis, ' 20; Baseball, " 20; Glee Club; Chemistry Club; Physics Club; Debating Team. Hobby: Writing Poetry for Snappy Stories Snyder is another member of the band tbat in- fests the northeast corner of the Chemistry build- ing. He is also our favorite tennis hound. Harold runs on the old assumption that too much work and no play makes the world a helluva place to live in. But be likes to hook both play and work together. Even when he ' s playing tennis he im- agines he ' s batting molecules around. We can ' t blame him then for being a little wild once in a while. Perhaps that explains his hobby! Anyone with such an intrinsic aptitude for imagining the impossible would be likely to be poetic. 86 Hazel JYLay Stevenson A. B. AAA " Thy modesty is a candle to thy merit. " — Fielding " Nor fame 1 slight, nor for her favors call, She comes unlooked for if she comes at all " — Pope Literature Club, Dramatic Study Club; President of Literature Club, ' 20; Literary Chairman Vocational Guid- ance, ' 20, ' 21 ; Debating Team, ' 21 ; Fea- ture Editor of Buchtelite, ' 20. Hobby: Bluffing Hazel — Man hater? We don ' t know, but we guess not. Hazel came to us from the University of Michi- gan — which just goes to prove that the best ones always come back to Akron U. She immediately took hold and soon we looked around and found someone doing things. Hazel ' s ability lies along literary lines. It was she who put life and size into the Literature Club by her open and direct methods. Her hobby is bluffing profs and traffic cops — it ' s easy to bluff profs — but we never saw her bluff a cop. However, we guarantee that if Hazel tried it she ' d get away with it. 87 Rodney C air R. Sutton " Fish " Z A E, Lance and Helmet, A 3 " Let him he sure to leave other men their turns to speak. " — Bacon Biology Club; Chemistry Club; Tom- Iinson Prize; Editor of Tel-Buch, 1920; Tennis Manager, T9, ' 20; Rhodes Schol- arship Nominee, ' 19. Hobby: Orating Rodney ' s very name bespeaks his sell-confidence and his active, progressive originality. His is one of those remarkable personalities that gets things done, lots of things, and big things, without the expenditure of his own energy. It is not so much what he does himself as what he gets done. He is on his way to being a lawyer, and ye gods, we hope that he is always on our side. He " gets away big " in anything that he attempts. Look his record over. Even the women stand for his line! 88 JVlargaret Timmis A. B. " Peg " M " Long traveled in the ways of men. " — Young " And nature swears, the lovely dears, Her noblest work she classes, O; Her ' prentice hand she tried on man, An ' then she made the lasses, O. " — Burns Literature Club; Dramatic Study Club; Class Secretary, ' 20. Hobby: Studying — Human Nature Yes, the first quotation above just fits Peggy. This is her fourth year in Campustry Club, of which she certainly is the honorary if not the ac- tual president. Her long experience at the work, her great success in keeping a club together, rec- ommend her for the leadership. She aims high — nothing less than Presidents will do! Peggy has majored in Romance Languages with an idea of teaching, but, strange to say, she wants to teach poetry now. We would suggest that Peggy teach French and Spanish in school — for she will have plenty of opportunity to teach poetry (Browning in particular) outside. But Peggy ' s friends are not all men — oh, no in- deed. The girl with many men friends is usually disliked a little by other girls, but Peg, our orig- inal little Sunshine Girl, is such an all-around good sport that she is as popular with the girls as with the men. That fact proves her success — she is liked by everyone. We will miss her, with her many smiles and friendly remarks. 89 Edgar ]VL. Thorft B. S. in M. P.

Hobby: Bargaining This is the smaller of the two Eddies. Though smaller, this one is as hard as nails. No wonder — he comes from two notable places: 1. The same place as Diet. 2. The same school. In plain English, he is from Ravenna and is an Engineer. Eddie is a great little fusser — hence Ravenna claims him in more ways than one, for he is a consistent " one-girl man. " Eddie is captain of the Scrap-iron Trio — and is some scrapper. He fought two years to land a berth on the basketball team and he landed it, too. We think of Eddie and Bill Knowlton as two of the best scrappers in school. Keep on scrapping, when you leave us, Eddie, but don ' t begin with " her. " 90 L Florence Almeda yvagner A. B. 2 A © " There is a gift beyond the reach of art, of being eloquently silent. " — Bovee " Money is a good soldier, and will on. " — Shakespeare Hobby: Collecting old and new coins (mostly new) " Fuzzy " is another one of those few students who possess the great gift of silence that makes them all but understandable. She expresses her approval with an eye that shows a deep love of na- ture, but when the traffic cops stop her, or her motor stalls — no — she has never been heard to ut- ter a word that was in the least malicious. Coins have an extreme interest for " Fuzzy. " ' In fact, she is a collector of coins — not the sort of a collector who gathers rusty, prehistoric coins at the expense of good money but one who is very successful in collecting those that are new and shiny. May some of the rest of us learn some of her methods. 91 George Frederic vveher A. B. A 2 O " Hear me, for I will speak. " —Shakespeare Chairman Debating Committee; Se- nior Ashton Prize Contest. Hobby: Bunk Fatigue Web came to us from Davidson College, N. C, and in his quiet, congenial way proceeded to make friends out of everyone on the campus. His first public appearance was made in chapel when he walked away with the big medal in the Senior Ashton Prize Contest. Since then, when he gets on the platform, all that we can do is listen. That ' s all we want to do for he is an impersonator deluxe and sways us to tears, or sets us cackling like a bunch of hens at a tea party, as he sees fit. Literature is Web ' s strong point and when not writing themes for Doc or reading a few blossoms from the poetical garden of etc., etc., he, like some of the rest of us, may be found doing bunk fatigue. 92 James Alexander vveeks B.

" — Scott Class President, ' 18; Class Treasurer, ' 20; Tel-Buch Staff, ' 19; Student Council, ' 18; Dance Committee, T8; Tomlinson Prize, ' 19. Hobby: Playing Bridge Here is a model young man, an earnest, diligent student and the pride of his neighborhood. There is only one thing we hold against him, he is gifted with a silver voice that persists in cracking, but his other qualifications easily obscure this minor defect and he seems to have formed a habit of spouting at banquets. At least when we want to hear a good toast we call upon Jimmy. Since Jimmy has abandoned the immediate ma- ternal influence of his Alma Mater he has certainly become a cutter. This is confidential — he has be- come a bridge fiend. Credit to him — with " hon- ors " in one hand and a law book in the other he has maintained the high standard of scholarship and character at Western Reserve which he had when he attended Akron U. Success to you, Jimmy. 93 c = Edward P. vventz A. B. " Eddie " n K E " To be strung Is to be happy.

Hobby: Chewing Gum Here is the man who, more than any other in school, helped to put Akron U on the map in the Athletic field. Eddie is a four-sport, twelve-letter man. Modest and unassuming, he always runs true to form. Always calm, never excited even in the most trying times, he has pulled many a game out of the fire and brought home the bacon lor our Alma Mater. Wherever Eddie is known he is respected as a gentleman and a true sport. Is it any wonder that he has been booked already?

Hobby: Athletics Louise is a regular good fellow, fond of all ac- tive sports and fondest of bluffing profs. Perhaps she is bluffing all of us, for she is one of Miss Stim- mel ' s pupils and her preparation fits her for other work than teaching. Louise is best known for her success in manag- ing feeds for the teams during football season. Whether we meet defeat or victory on the field it is toward Louise and her able crew that the teams look after the game is over. And it is her man- agement that they have to thank when they leave the gym with a full stomach and a happy smile. It is rather strange, but in the last year Louise has acquired a taste for poetry. Perhaps she has been influenced by Peg — she spends a great deal of time with her. 95 Harold JYLartin Vvilson A. B. " Tubby " II K E, 5 K " On with the dance.

" He is co- originator of the " Toddle, " disseminator of big college spirit, and one of the most popular men in school. " Tubby " deserted Akron U. for Colgate, but, growing tired of tooth-brush drills, he returned to his Alma Mater, where his little Ford coupe soon blocked the driveway. As a musician is the only place he falls down. He persists that O-Keh records are music and in- sists upon distributing them among the fair sex. Studies never bothered " Tubby " very much — in fact, nothing ever did. A cheerful, good-na- tured sort of chap — it is no wonder that we will miss him. 96 fflarner Leslie Vvillyard B.

Hobby: Making the Long Green Ravenna claims the prodigy of our class. Quiet and unassuming, he surprised everyone, himself included, by being elected to Phi Sigma Alpha, honorary fraternity, in his senior year. To have achieved this measure of success is no small honor, and his recognition is but just. In his freshman year, Warner was a chem shark of note and seemed doomed to a life of solutions and precipitates. But sophomore year found him spending hour after hour in the library with his nose buried in a stack of books. It is as a student that we must remember him, because the success that he made in his studies overshadows everything else that he has done. And, to be hailed as the high man of such a class as this, is no small honor. Congratulations, Warner! 97 3E[H-C[NTLNN1AL COMMENCEMENT DAY 98 JUNIORS In JxLemoriam Parke Harlon Myers Parke Myers is gone, but his memory will for- ever remain in the minds of those who knew him. The Angel of Death walked among us, and he of the golden hair, the laughing eyes and pleasant voice was called — Home! So sud- denly, so swiftly did Fate move that we were stunned beyond comprehension. Just now are we beginning to realize our great loss. An ardent student, a willing worker, a loyal friend, a true gentleman was Parke. As a mem- ber of various organizations, in numerous school offices and on the several athletic squads he served equally well. Behind his success, what- ever the line, was his winning personality, his gentlemanly conduct. It is these characteristics that make his memory golden and his place so hard to fill. 100 Junior Class OFFICERS Holme Williams President Elizabeth Iredell Vice President Dorothy Marsh Secretary John Frolbe Treasurer Allaman, Mary Avery, Allen Beer, Alice Betzler, Alma Bliss, Helen Blower, William Bohl, Ray Brewster, Albert Busenberg, Earl Carney, Lynn Christensen, Chester Daum, Carl Depue, John Dunford, Emerson Eckert, Herman Froebe, John Ganyard, Gladys Guckeyson, Harry Harpster, Mildred Iredell, Elizabeth Lancaster, Raymond Leland, Maxine Markle, Geraldine Marsh, Dorothy Melvin, Willard Moore, J.

Looking back over the sea- son, several factors must be taken into consideration be fore criticism can be rendered from any source. In the first place, when Sefton called the roll for the first practice, he found that he had lost nine letter men of last year ' s squad. Only four men who had played college football remained and it was around them that Sefton was forced to build a team. A wealth of material made up of green and inexperienced men donned the moleskins and al though the team started well and gave a good account of itself in the easier games played early in the season, it became apparent as the season progressed that the team was not up to the standard and was too in- experienced to withstand the heavy Conference schedule. Although the team did not win a majority of the Con- ference games, it must be conceded that it did face a diffn cult proposition at the outset and that it gave its best for the school, gaining thereby valuable experience that should stand them well when the next season opens. The first game of the season was played with Defiance, a non-Conference team. The visitors were no match for the Akron U aggregation as the team had little ditiiculty in running up a score of 51 to 0. The following week-end saw the defeat of Reserve on their home ground. Out- weighed nearly twenty pounds to a man and relying on brains and speed, Akron downed their opponents and fin- 182 ished the game on the long end of a 13 to score. In the third game of the season, the Blue and Gold routed the Berea boys to the tune of 21 to 0. Not being able to forestall the old Case hoodoo that the Cleveland aggregation can yearly invade Akron with a weak team and either beat or tie the Akron team, the Blue and Gold warriors started for the showers with the short end of a 7 to score. The first accident of its kind that has ever befallen an Akron player was witnessed at the beginning of the third quarter when Al Ulrich was taken off the field with a broken leg. Mt. Union proved to be a mountain which the Akron U gridders were unable to move, the result being that Akron suffered its second defeat of the season on the visi- tors ' field. According to tradition it was the Alliance team ' s turn in victory, as the two schools have been swap- ping defeats for the past few years. The Akron team was completely outplayed by the Casey-coached men and be- fore the final whistle Mt. Union piled up a score of 26 to 0. After staggering under two successive defeats, Akron ' s football squad came from behind and defeated the Hiram warriors by a seven-point margin, the final score being 14 to 7. In holding Wooster to a 14 to score, the Blue and Gold team succeeded in accomplishing a feat equaled by no other school during the 1920 season. The Boles men had tallied three scores in every game they had played, but the opinion was unanimous that they were exceedingly lucky to tally twice against Akron. The Akron men for- got old scores and played a brand of football in keeping with their former records. An accident marred the other- wise good day when Stew Shafer, playing halfback, was taken from the field with a broken collarbone. 183 . ?■ 184 The final game of the season, the week-end following the Wooster game, was played against Ohio University at Athens. The Akron team showed complete reversal of the form shown in the Wooster game, due, no doubt, to lack of practice. During the entire week preceding the game weather conditions were such that practice on the field was next to impossible, making it necessary to give short workouts in the gym. The Akron team was com- pletely outplayed by the Ohio U team which scored at will. The result was that the Blue and Gold team suffered the most complete defeat in years, the score being 39 to 0. J I THE TEAM Captain " Red " Daum " Red " proved to be one of the most capable field gen- erals of the Conference and probably one of the most con- sistent players that Akron fans have seen for a number of years. When it came to picking off forward passes, " Red " was just about as near perfect as they make ' em. R was nothing unusual for this man to reach up into space and snag the pigskin without losing a step. " Red " will be with Akron U again next year and is sure of making an even greater name for himself in football history. Herman Eckert When it comes to showing the opposition their place none is better fitted than Captain-elect Eckert. " Griz " was a mountain of strength on the 1920 combination and his reputation as a hard-charging tackle won for him much favorable comment from the Blue and Gold fol- lowers. With three years ' experience in college football, " Griz " will no doubt give a good account of himself as Captain of next year ' s team. £r X- 185 Edward P. Wentz This big, lanky fellow plays a remarkable game at cen- ter. Ed played his last year in college football this year, and although he did not play full time, he always man- aged to give a good account of himself in some part of the big scrap. The long boy is too valuable a man in basket- ball to have any injury lay him up. Eddie always keeps the cool, level-headed fighting spirit. Stanford C. Close Here is another man who had a most delightful habit of grabbing off forward passes. With plenty of weight and brawn in reserve, " Stan " rushed hard and cut down men with a regularity that did not go unnoticed by the usually near-sighted gallery. He will not hold down the wing position next year for he leaves the University after hav- ing served the Blue and Gold teams for three years. Carl D. Wert " Dick " was a valuable man to have around and ably filled the center and guard positions when called upon to do so. Early in the season Dick got a hard bump on the knee which kept him from taking part in a majority of games. However, Wert will be on duty again next year and he intends to make up for what he lost during the 1920 season . Clarence Bliley Although not as heavy as some of the other backfield men, " Ching " proved to be a born football man and filled the quarter and halfback positions to everybody ' s satisfaction. Bliley piloted the team the greater part of the season and it was in this capacity that he has shown his ability with the pigskin. He has yet two years to play on the varsity and should easily win for himself a berth on the All-Ohio. Clande V. Emmons By persistent effort and hard work, Emmons landed a 186 position on the squad. He is a hard and fast runner and his work on the defense would be hard to beat. Had he known his ability as a football player before, he would undoubtedly have been seen in the moleskins in former years, but Emmons graduates in June and consequently will not hold down the halfback job any longer. Carl P. Leffler Though almost a midget, " Spec " proved to be an excel- lent open field runner and netted the squad not a few yards of enemy territory. Leffler intends to be on hand when Coach calls the football roll again next year and will undoubtedly again put into practice that fighting spirit which is characteristic of " Spec. " George Whalen When this big, rangy chap got started there was no stopping him. " George " held down a guard position and his general all-around playing gave him a place on the Sefton-coached aggregation. He will no doubt be used to advantage next fall. Robert Ellis Coach Sefton found this heavy giant a good bet in the tight places, and when called upon Ellis always helped to rip up the visitors. Give this chap enough to work off a bit of the surplus fat and he will make the boys step for a steady job next fall. Albert Ulrich " Al " was playing a great game at half and showed signs of developing into a valuable man for this position when he was injured in the Case game. Coming down the field under a punt, at the beginning of the third quarter, Ul- rich was tackled by two Case men. The result of the play was disastrous for the Akron team for " Al " was carried off the field with a broken leg, probably never to return in a football uniform. 187 Stuart Shafer " Stew " received his first serious injury in college foot ball while playing fullback in the Wooster game. He had been substituting at various positions in the backfield during the entire season and was found to be a capable player and a good teamworker. With this year ' s -experi- ence, Shafer no doubt will make himself known in the Akron U backfield next year. LINE-UP Red Daum (Capt.)

The outlook for strong teams throughout the state was very promising as some schools had as high as four and five of last 3 ' ear ' s first squad out for practice. Akron ranked high from a pre-sea- son standpoint because of the fact that three members of the 1920 cham- pionship team would perform again this year. The guard position, left vacant by the graduation of Bocdickcr, was capably filled by Thorpe, a substitute of the past three years. The center position then was the real problem that Coach Sefton had to solve before Akron could successfully compete with the stronger teams which were scheduled for the latter part of the season. Among the possibilities for this position were Will- yard, Langer and Smith. Willyard, however, graduated in January, leaving the latter two candidates to compete for the pivot job. Shortly after the Cincinnati trip, Langer left school and the major part of the work was carried on by Smith with the assistance of Darrah, who donned the basketball logs for the first time in his life and showed that he was made of the stuff that makes good basketball players. The season opened with an easy victory over Baldwin-Wallace in the gymnasium January 7. Following the first victory Defiance, Be- serve, Case and Hiram were defeated with little difficulty and hopes for another championship team were running high. Then, Wooster, an old enemy and a keen rival of the Blue and Gold in every line of sports, invaded Akron and nearly blasted the championship hopes, but the old pep saved the day. The Wooster fracas was followed by the Wittenberg game at Spring- field. The Lutherans and the unfamiliarity with the large Memorial Hall floor proved to be too much for the Akron U team which finished on the short end of the score for the fifth time in the last five years. The week-end of February 19 found the squad playing in the extreme 190 southern part of the state where defeats were handed to both Cincinnati and Miami. On February 21, after the sojourn in the south, the Blue and Gold boys dropped another game to Wittenberg by an eleven point margin, before the largest crowd ever assembled in Crouse gymnasium. The remaining three games with Wooster, Kenyon and Case were won with comparative ease and the Akron University basketball season of 1921 came to an end. The pre-season prophecies made that no conference team would com- plete the season without a defeat were well founded. The champion- ship flag was won by the Ohio University team which played nine games and lost one. Oberlin followed in second place by winning six and losing one, and Akron copped third place by wnning nine and losing two. With the passing of the 1921 season another bright spot is added to Akron basketball history. The record is one that no other Ohio college has attained during the past five years. Out of sixty-six games played only six were lost. Captain Eddie Wentz (Left Forward) Because of his previous record as a basketball player, Capt. Wentz was a marked man during the entire season. In spite of this fact Eddie succeeded in breaking away and scored 215 points during the 1921 season. During his three years of conference basketball he scored 661 points. He was a member of the All-Ohio for the 1919 and 1920 seasons and besides being given honorable mention for the 1921 sea- son by all Ohio coaches, he was considered the most valuable man to his team of any man in the conference. Besides being a valuable man in basketball, Eddie plays football, baseball, and is a track man. In losing this athlete, Coach Sefton is losing one of the best all-round men that has ever entered Akron University. 191 Carl Daum (Right Guard) Few people know Daum by his first name for it is always " Red. " This was " Red ' s " second year in college basketball and he is considered one of the premier guards of the Ohio Conference. This season he held his man down to 1.2 baskets per game and for the e ntire season he scored from the field the same number goals registered by his opposing forwards. " Red " will be captain of next year ' s team and will undoubt- edly set a pace and be the leader that any man will want to follow. Bill Knowlton (Rigid Forward) Bill is the third member of the Knowlton quartet and has made a very good contribution to the history already made by this family at Akron University. He stepped into college basketball for the first time last year and performed in fine style. This year he was even better and played a remarkable floor game due to the fact that the word " quit " is unknown to him. When Bill graduates this June, Coach Sefton will have lost one of the best fighters he has had in years. Ed Thorpe (Left Guard) The fourth member of the team is Ed Thorpe better known on the tloor as " Ed. " For years he traveled with the team as a substitute and when called upon this year to fill the guard position he stepped into the game with the same calmness and serenity as an old vet. " Ed " proved to be a capable running mate for Daum and held his man to two baskets per game for the entire season. 192 Spike Smith (Center) This long lanky fellow came to Akron from out of the East. " Spike " was a new man at center and needed considerable basketball expe- rience to be classed with the other members of the squad. However, he gave the best that he was capable of giving and gained a wealth of basketball knowledge that will be of invaluable use to him next year. THE SECOND TEAM The second team must not be forgotten while the laurels are being distributed to the regulars for they used to beat the varsity once in a while and they are the boys that took the greater part of the hard bumps. It was due to their hard and consistent practice that the first team was able to make the showing that it did. So don ' t forget the work of Myers, Bliley, Darrah, Rowley, and Frank Knowlton.

With a number of veterans back on the diamond and a wealth of new material which is being rapidly worked into shape to fill the vacancies left by last year ' s graduation, Coach Sefton is de- veloping a team that should win a majority, if not all, of the nine games scheduled. The main difficulty, however, is a lack of material for duty in the box. At the opening of the season four pitchers reported for mound duty, but at the present time it seems as though the majority of the work will be done by Thornbury and Ellis. It is hardly necessary to say anything in praise of the rest of the team, for with such men as Wentz, Bliley, Jor- dan and St. John in the infield and Close, Snyder and Lancaster in the gardens, there is little possibility of a visiting player crossing the home plate. Daum, assisted by Smith and Long, will do the receiving. With such a line-up, the Akron University baseball team should finish the season with a high standing in the Ohio Conference race.

That the season has not so far been the success that was looked for, has been due to the fact that the Coach was compelled to devote the major portion of his time to basketball and is now com- pletely absorbed in the development of a winning baseball team. How- ever, in spite of this misfortune, some real track men are being de- veloped and no doubt some excellent records will be made before the season is completed. Barnes is one of the best men on the squad, and should his work in the future progress as it has since his entrance into Akron U., he will probably be the greatest track man this University has ever had. Barnes runs the half-mile and mile. In the indoor meet with Beserve and the meet with Case and Wooster, he had little difficulty in taking firsts. The Big Six meet should give him further opportunity to show what he is capable of doing under a real test. Other men who have been doing good work on the cinder path are Capt. Bowley, Hilbish, Emmons, F. Knowlton, Darrah and Lancaster. The shot is being handled by Ellis, Olsen, and Huffman, while Colley and Barnes take care of the javelin. Hill is hurdling and Buch is running the four-forty yard dash. The season opened with an indoor meet with Beserve in the latter ' s gymnasium. Although the meet resulted in a loss for the Akron team, it served to give some of the new men their collegiate baptism in this form of college activity. Other meets held with Case and Wooster likewise resulted in defeats for the Akron U. squad. eo Personnel Robert Ellis Weights Lorin Huffman Weights Leland Olsen Weights Harold Barnes Javelin and Distance Runs Donald Darrah Distance Runs Harold Colley Javelin Emmer Lancaster Dashes William Rowley Dashes Elden Rich Dashes Russel Hilbish Broad Jump Clande Emmons High Jump Frank Knowlton Hurdles and High Jump Clarence Hill Hurdles 1921 VARSITY TRACK SCHEDULE Reserve, Feb.; Cleveland.

Besides providing adequate facilities for the intellectual educa- tion of the students, it is necessary that the University should provide fa- cilities adequate for the physical development of every student. Plans for the attainment of this duty have been formulated and are being car- ried out as rapidly as financial conditions will permit. Included in these plans is that for the rebuilding of Buchtel Field. It calls for the enlargement of the field, the construction of a reinforced concrete grandstand, the regrading of the entire field, the construction of two football fields, a baseball diamond, and tennis courts. To complete these improvements will require the expenditure of approximately one hundred thousand dollars. Of this sum, sixty thousand dollars have already been appropriated. Work on the new field was started in the spring of 1920 and has pro- gressed in such a manner that the greater portion of the plan has already been completed. By the purchase of additional land the size of the field has been increased by about one-fourth of the original, a new drainage system has been laid, the field has been regraded, and the football and baseball fields have been laid out. One section of the grandstand is now being constructed, and the remaining sections will be built as soon as the money is available. The unsightly board fence, so common to most athletic fields, has been eliminated by the construction of an up-to-date one of wire. Besides be- ing a decided improvement to the field, the fence is an asset to the com- munity in which the field lies. When the rebuilding of Buchtel Field is completed, the students of the University of Akron will be able to boast of an athletic field that is sec- ond to none in any Ohio Conference school. Then a new gymnasium will be the next step in the completion of the athletic expansion program. 204 206 Senior ' rom Given by the Class of 21 in honor of the Class of 22 J anuary 31, 1921 Grouse Gymnasium PATRONS AND PATRONESSES Mr. and Mrs. P.

These affairs have been the meeting ground for all college groups, and their popularity indicates in some degree the college spirit. Various members of the faculty chaperoned the dances. The dance committee takes this opportunity to thank all those who have so loyally supported these college affairs and who have helped to make them such an integral part of college life.

The glee clubs now number over sixty men and women who are at- tending practise faithfully and doing excellent work. The Akron University Glee Clubs and Orchestra in conjunction with Mr. Umberto Sorrentino, the great Italian tenor, and Mr. J. Garfield Chapman, violinist, have already given a successful concert which served to put Akron University on the map in music. Plans are being made for another concert this spring. A similar plan will be followed — some great arfist will be procured to work with our glee clubs and orchestra, prob- ably in the production of a few choice acts from Grand Opera. The orchestra is as great a success as the glee clubs. Those who were here before its formation and are still here know the vast gain in interest in our chapel exercises since its existence. Chapel hour is no longer a period to be dreaded but one to look forward to. There is a new pep and spirit about our school which is plainly a result of the coming of music to the campus of old Buchtel. Professor DeLeone is optimistic as to the future. He says that the spirit is excellent and that combined with it is plenty of real talent. He looks forward to a growing musical organization and hopes that in a few years we may have a musical department in which voice, violin, and special study of all kinds may be taken up. 210 DRAMATICS The Dramatic Study Club Presents " SIj?

The publication has passed thru its last year under its old constitution. Tho this year has been a very success- ful one, the staff was hampered by the limitations under which it worked. To remedy these conditions, the English department and the Student Council co-operated with the staff to produce a new constitution which would meet the new needs of greater Akron University. This constitution was voted on and accepted by the student body in the spring elections. In the future the Buchtelite will be run on a different plan which will insure, it is hoped, an even better paper. 221 Other Publications The Alumni Quarterly, as its name indicates, is a quar- terly paper published by the Alumni Association for the purpose of keeping alumni in touch with each other, and with the college affairs. Mrs. H. E. Simmons is Editor-in- Chief. The Retort is the organ of that well-known organiza- tion, the " Chem " Club.

At Welker ' s Dan— Hair cut, sir? Alvah — Yes, and I don ' t want any tonic, nor a massage, shampoo, singe or a shave. An engaged girl will press a man ' s trousers from eight till eleven every night, and after they are married she won ' t press ' em for love or money. It would be a pleasure to give up one ' s scat in a street car to a beautiful girl, but somehow beautiful girls seem to have other means of conveyance. Don ' t believe everything you see in print, especially if it is on a modern bottle of liquor. Do You Know Your Own School? Gudikunst was the first man to make the book store pay. Miss Haverstick is the only person who ever worked in the office who opened up every morning at eight o ' clock. Dr. Plowman is the inventor of Biology. Coach Sefton is the first coach we ever had that wasn ' t rough on the boys. Miss Findlay doesn ' t mind if you talk in the Library if you keep your mouth shut. On account of the demand for higher education, the Arts College was built up higher than the Engineering College. Mr. Crouse built our gymnasium without taking Wittenberg into con sideration. Deake Leake is not a graduate of the University of Akron. 240 Hez Simmons is the inventor of the 101 Proof, now being invented over in the chem. lab. Fred Nestelle and his troupe of fleet-footed janitors once had soap and towels in Buchtel Hall. Dean Ayer does not smoke cigarettes all the time. He sleeps eight hours every day. We firmly believe that any man who can stay at the University for four years without being killed or badly injured by a dray, automobile, or street car is well deserving of a diploma whether he passes any courses or not. " I hear Howdy was arrested for being too full. " " Yes, he was so full we had to bail him out. " " Mother, may I a-riding go? " " Yes, my sweet Lucille, " But give your friend this sound advice: " Keep one hand on the wheel. " Bill Blower — Did her father in- vite you to call again? Stan — Nope; he dared me to. Harpy — Have you made up your mind to stay in? Ethel — No. I ' ve made up my face to go out. Hitchcock — Why are the prices lower for the seats in the gallery? Ticket Seller — Because they ' re higher. Weber (passionately) — Darling, I have a secret to whisper into your ears — where are they?

Dr. Plowman on Neurology — What are the sensations of the vestibule? Margaret W. (stamping her foot) — I refuse to answer such a personal question. After looking over the new spring styles, Red Damn has decided to be- come a ladies ' tailor. Plowman — What is the meaning of vortex? Morganstern — Oh, I know. It ' s the extra cent on ice cream and movies. " You say you became drunk after kissing Marie? " " Yes, she used a little stick on her lips. " She Said She ' d... Go Through Anything With.. Me So She Started On My Bank Account Questionable Friends One who gives you the last dance on a twenty-dance programme. One who drops in your room about twelve bells to tell you in minute detail everything he knows and a good many things he doesn ' t. One who lends you a ten-spot and actually expects it back the same week. One who looks out for the girl back home. One who asks you over for a social game and takes away every cent you have. — Punch Bowl. True Enough A young colored couple were sitting at the foot of the Statue of Lib- erty.

McCullough had written on the back of a theme: " Please write more legibly. " Next day — " Professor, what is this you have put on my theme? " " Do you love me, John? " " Sure. " " Then why don ' t your chest go up and down like the man in the movies? " 245 246 Froebe — My career at college is like an open book. Dorothy — Illustrated with cuts, I suppose. Kaufman — Pa won ' t let me use the machine any more. Wortie— Why? Kaufman — I forgot to clean the hairpins out of it last night. " Here comes Hazel. Isn ' t she a keen little dame? " " Yes, watch her cut me. " Musser? " What do you call a man who plays a saxiphone? " ' ' It depends upon how rotten he is. " A woman talks less in February than in any other month. There are only twenty-eight days in that month. Polly (jealously) — I have seen you running around with a lot of men. Gloria — But, dear, I am on my last lap now. Dean Spanton — I bid you good morning. Howdy (still groggy) — I ' ll raise you ten. Griff — Say, Alvah, where ' s your frat pin? Alvah (ex-S. A. T. C.)— Why, I lost it in action. ' ' You look tired, Eddie. You must have been missing sleep. " " Yes, I haven ' t been to economics this week. " Jack Built Better Than He Knew Betty — Had a date with Jack last night. He ' s lovely. Co-ed I — Betty had a date last night with Jack, and she ' s in love with him. Co-ed II — Betty had a date with Jack last night, and they ' re so deeply in love with each other they don ' t know what to do. She ' s wearing his pin. Co-ed III — Betty had a date with Jack last night and they ' re so much in love she ' s wearing his pin, and he ' s going to get her a ring tomorrow. Co-ed IV — Betty had a date with Jack last night, and they ' re so much in love that she ' s wearing bis pin and an engagement ring, and they ' re iooking at plain gold bands. Co-ed V — Betty had a date last night with Jack, and they ' re so much in love that she ' s wearing his pin and ring and they ' re going to elope tonight. Co-ed VI — I heard that Betty and Jack were married. Is it so? Moral — Never use an adjective when talking to a co-ed. — Sun Dial. 247 248 Clen Emmons — Good morning, little one. Haven ' t I met yon before? W. W. — It ' s quite likely. I used to be a nurse in the insane asylum. DeLeone — How those old songs do haunt me. Spec — They should. You ' ve often murdered them. Visitor to Dr. Kolbe — Dr., how many professors work here? Dr. Kolbe — Oh, about two-thirds of them. Daddy Egbert (gazing at his hair brush, absent-mindedly) — My, 1 need a shave. Charlie Bulger — Who ' s there? Burglar — Lie still and be quiet. I ' m looking for money. Charlie — Wait, and I ' ll get up and help you look. Frosh (running up to Miss Weeks) — Information given out here? Miss Weeks (wearily) — It has. An old gossip is a young flirt gone to seed. " Fire razes house to ground. " — Akron Times. And now the landlord can ' t raise the rent until he raises another house. Pray what would happen if men said what they thought and women thought what they said? Perhaps the camera doesn ' t lie, but some of us have often found it very insulting. When two men friends meet they want to play a game of pool.

Love — sighed the debutante — is a wonderful, thrilling thing. Love — asserted the Spinster — is a fleeting, elusive substance. Love — rasped the husband — is something that was but isn ' t.

" Well, suppose I refuse to pay it. What ' ll be your next move then? " " The next move, in that case, " said the landlord, " will be yours. " Ladies first — it gives a fellow something to look forward to. Cheer up, co-eds. Even a lightning rod is attractive in its own way. Some people insist there ' s nothing like being in on the ground floor, whiie_olhers these days are satisfied with the cellar. The Professor The Professor throws his shoulders back and straightens out his tie, And says, " My friends, unless it rains the weather will be dry. " And when this thought into our brains has percolated through, We common people nod our heads and loudly cry, " How true! " The Professor blows his massive nose and clears his august throat, And says, " The ship will never sink so long as it ' s afloat. " Whereat we roll our solemn eyes, applaud with main and might, And slap each other on the back, the while we say " He ' s right. " The Professor waxes stern and warm, his drone becomes a roar, He yells, " I say to you, my friends, that two and two make four.

" 251 TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN : I cheerfully recommend my old girl to any young man wanting a suitable dating companion for next year. She is a good dancer physically and morally. She is a good looker. She is a good listener. She isn ' t too good. She is an excellent pedestrian, in fact, she will always say she likes to walk, although she is not prejudiced against a car. She is a woman of deep emotions whom only you will be able to thrill. She has, to the best of my knowledge, absolutely no ideas of her own on any subject, except you. My sole and simole reason for quitting her is that I am leaving school. Treat her right. She likes to be treated. At the Prom She sat alone. The bright decorations of the gym brought out the delicate texture of her skin. Her soft brown hair was like the shimmering waves of the ocean, her eyes as blue as the azure sky. Every line of her evening gown spelled class and refinement. Surely she must be one of the 400. Would this exquisite piece of femininity dance with him? Hesitating- ly he approached her and bowing low asked for the dance. Coldly she surveyed him and then in a voice that sounded like the musical ripple of a brook she answered, " Naw! I ' ll dance wid th ' guy what brung me. " There ' s an awful difference between the girl who is kittenish and the one who is cattv. It ' s sometimes bad taste to kiss a girl who uses a lipstick. Grab ' Em Young If you love me, tay tow, If you don ' t love me, tay tow; If you love me, tweeze my hand, Rut don ' t keep me titting on dese told teps All night long. I ' ll freeze to deff. Damit. Olson (to dentist) — Say, there ' s something the matter with that fdl ing you put in my back tooth last week. Every time I hit it with my knife it pains me. How Rude " Don ' t kiss me, please! " sweet Mary cried, " It isn ' t customary. " And the, oh, then, you should have heard That fellow cus-to-Mary! 253 254 Did You Ever? A famous philosopher has said that nothing is impossible. But did you ever try — To get a date with Peg Washburn. To talk in the library. To shoot craps in Buchtel Hall. To keep a clean shirt in Akron. To get in the gym on the night of a big game. To wash your hands in any of the college buildings. To fill your fountain pen with ink in the office. To go swimming in our swimming pool. To reduce. To look innocent while cutting. To find out what a woman is thinking about. To understand calculus. To study in a fraternity house. To get a piece of candy at the book store for nothing. To get rough with an engineer. To get one of Sharer ' s lessons. To get a seat in a street car and keep it away from a standing woman. To find how some guys get such grades. To pass physics. To make Plesofsky keep notices off the bulletin board. To break up a session in the men ' s smoking room in Engineering College. To make more noise than Dieterich. To stop McJoynt from talking on methods. To get Joy without Bliss. To figure Bed Kregenow ' s haircut. To use Pussyfoot ' s gestures. To find Maxine Leland without Musser. To try to argue with Prof. Crecraft. To figure Jenkins ' drag. At the Prom " I can ' t give away any more dances, my girl has a sore foot. " " But you have been dancing with her all evening. " " That ' s all right, I know which one it is. " — Froth. Start a Pawn Shop " I see Carney has another new car. " " Yeh, he can afford it. He goes to every Prom you know — " " Uh huh. " " And always parks his boat right outside the gym door. " " Yeh. " " Well, he told me that last Prom he swept up four vanity bags, a cou- ple of fat wallets, a wrist watch and a quart of miscellaneous jewelry from his back seat. " — Tiger. 255 256 =a One, Two and Out One — Do you know that girl over there? Two— No. One — Didn ' t think so. Two— Why? One — She looks like a nice girl. — Jester. And Give Higher Marks " ' They say that the prof ' s ought to have higher salaries. " " Who say? " " The profs. " — Record. No Room Mary — Jack said he always kept me in mind. Ann — Are you used to such cramped quarters, dear? — Jack o ' Lantern. Leap Year Lois — Was Joe on his knees when he proposed to you? Louise D. — No, I was. — Voo Doo. Wow! Dido — Do you remember when you were first struck by my beauty? Aeneas — Yes, dearest. It was at the masked ball. — Sun Dial. Editor — Did you ever read proof? Would-be Staff — Naw, who wrote it?— Ex. Bad Luck " When I was coming home last night I saw a man skulking along in the shadows, " said Marguerite at the dinner table. " Oh, how I ran! " " And couldn ' t you catch him? " asked her kid brother naively. — Punch Bowl. " You said you would die for me. " " Yes, dearest. " " Then why couldn ' t I drive your car last night? " If you can ' t laugh at the jokes of this age, Laugh at the age of these jokes. THE END. 257 258 CALENDAR 259 Calendi ar SEPTEMBER 15 — Wednesday: Greater-Akron University is here.

B. or B. S. A course in the chemistry of rubber. Combination courses with Ohio State University in law and agriculture. Combination courses with Western Re- serve University in medicine and law. Such combination courses between college and professional schools save the student one year ' s time in obtaining both degrees. Arrangements of this kind may be made with most first-class professional schools in the country. Courses for the training of teachers are also given in co-operation with the City Normal School. THE COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING AND COMMERCE Offers a five-year course in various branches of engineering; a four-year course in Manufacturing Production, in which students attend college every day and also work four hours in a rubber factory; and courses of four years each in Secretarial Work and Business Administration. THE CURTIS SCHOOL OF HOME ECONOMICS Gives a four-year course of college grade in home economics. The sciences of chemistry, physics, botany, zoology and bacteriology furnish a basis for specialized work in the chemistry and preparation of food sanitation, dietetics, etc. THE COLLEGE FOR TEACHERS Offers courses to prepare teachers for either grade school or high school posi- tions. Conducted jointly by the University and the Board of Education. Offers to students all the advantages of the various departments of the University and, for practise work, the resources of the Akron public school system. THE DEPABTMENT OF MUNICIPAL CO-OPEBATION This department is not, strictly speaking, a teaching unit of the University. It does, however, give advanced students opportunity to enter practically into the activities of city work, such as chemical, physical, and bacteriological testing for various city departments, all of which is done by the University, also into sociological work in connection with the City Board of Health and the Charity organizations. THE EVENING CLASSES Offer opportunity to employed persons to obtain college training in nearly every department of the institution. Address President P. R. KOLBE or Secretary C. R. OLIN, for Information 272 m The two-story building in Akron, on the site of the present Goodrich factories, was part of the nucleus of the industry itself as it now exists. At that time fewpersonsever dream- ed what the industry could become. Electricity was undeveloped. Transportation was in its infancy. The automobile and motor truck were unborn. The combination of circ.umstances which brought about the greatest industrial era of the world was virtually unseen. Radiating from that small factory and small organization of half a century ago, Goodrich has built a city! Not alone the huge city of brick and stone and steel which houses the great plant in Akron — but a city which comprises the entire Goodrich organization every- where in the world. The opening of the second half century of the organization finds it just as earnestly building its city in the esteem and regard of the public, as it worked on that far day in 1870 when it was entering a field almost untried and approaching an era of development passing the imagina- tion of that time.
