CCORDING to the provisions of the Act
passed by the General Assembly of
Delaware in 1867 under which the re-
organization of Delaware College was
effected, Manlove Hayes, of Dover, was
elected a member of the Board of Trus-
tees June 20, 1882, as a representative
on the part of the old college. At that
time Dr. Lewis P. Bush was President
Board, and George G. Evans, already a
f ,1k veteran in the service of the College, having
f' ll been elected a member of the Board in 1856,
l was its Secretary.
Mr. Hayes at once entered into the duties of
his trust with characteristic zeal and intelligence
and soon occupied a position of great influence in
the counsels of the Board. From early boyhood he
f had revealed those traits of character that go to

make up his personality and had exhibited a broad
4 minded sympathy with every movement that looks
towards the upbuilding of his fellow man. It was natural that
he should early be entrusted with the working out of some of
the difficult problems that confronted the Board of Trustees
in the management of the affairs of the College. He was
made Vice-President of the Board upon the election of Chief
Justice Lore to succeed in the Presidency made vacant by
the death of Dr. Bush. He has served on all the most im-
portant committees of the Board, both permanent and spe-
cial, in many cases as chairman, and has been most active
in pushing all measures that promise the betterment of the
College. By the force of his character and the wisdom of his
counsels he has been enabled to fix the impress of his life
upon the workings of the College and to determine its de-
velopment upon broad and lasting foundations. Mr. Hayes
thus describes his iirst connection with the College and his
subsequent interest in the institution. In 1832 and 1833,
then a lad of 16 years, he was a student of Newark Acad-
emy under the rectorship of the Rev. A. K. Russell.
"As I remember, Newark College was built in
1833. I do not recall any formal ceremonies at its
founding, such as laying the corner-stone, etc., but
have a distinct recollection of the open trenches for
the foundationsg in fact while I was playing around
them with other boys and making inquiries of the
man in charge of the masonry, he handed me a
brick and showed me where to place it in the corner
of one of the trenches, saying that it would not be
removed and that I could say I laid the first brick
in the College building. I have often thought of
this incident and it may have been one reason,
though less important than many others, for the ac-
tive interest I have always felt in the success of the
Of the early struggles of the College while it Was suffer
ing from the lack of students and resources, he says:
"At this time the attendance was small and the
Trustees found great difficulty, with the small in-
come at their command, to pay the necessary ex-
penses. The salaries of professors were meager
and the utmost economy was used in maintaining
the College buildings. The Legislature was ap-
pealed to for aid but at first responded very re-
luctantly. It seemed to be hard to convince the law
makers that the College, as a State institution, ap-
pealed strongly to their liberality and of right
claimed justly their support, and that State pride
should inspire them to deal generously by it in mak-
ing appropriations. I took part in every movement
of the kind, using my best efforts and all the influ-
ence I could bring to bear in its behalf. As the
number of students increased it was found abso-
lutely necessary to have larger and better accom-
modations. By a strenuous effort, including a visit
to the College by the Legislature, the Want of a
larger building was made so apparent that a bill
was passed giving the College an appropriation for
the erection of Recitation Hall 41890-925. Since
then appropriations have been granted for enlarg-
ing and remodeling the old Dormitory building and
for workshops and a large gymnasium. In all pro-
gressiveumatters in relation to improvements and
to educational instruction I have taken an active
part and as the chairman of the Committee on In-
struction and Discipline and as a member of other
important committees have for many years devoted
a good deal of attention to the affairs of this insti-
tution as well as to other subjects of general edu-
Mr. Hayes proceeds to tell of other activities in which
he has been engaged for the education of the public:
"I was for sixteen years President of the
Dover Library and by a personal visit to the Sec-
retary of the United States Treasury, obtained per-
mission for the Library to use the fine suite of
rooms on the second floor of the Post Ofhce Build-
ing at Dover. A few years ago the stockholders of
this library transferred their stock gratuitously to
the Dover Town Library, which now enjoys the
free use of their books and other privileges. I de-
clined an election to the Presidency, but was soon
afterwards appointed by Governor Hunn a mem-
ber of the State Library Commission and accepted
the Presidency of the Board.
"I have taken an active interest in agriculture
and was made corresponding secretary of the first
State Agricultural Society in 1849, and continued
to act in that capacity for more than thirty years,
in the meantime making monthly reports on the
condition of crops to the U. S. Department of Agri-
culture and maintaining a large correspondence
with other agricultural institutions and progress-
ive farmers. My report of the State Board of Ag-
riculture of 1888-89, the iirst published, was es-
teemed of general interest and highly valued by
the farmers. The volume contains about five hun-
dred pages. The State paid for the printing and
binding of this work, but was at no expense in
compiling or editing the report."
Such is one side of this useful life. No attempt has
been made to represent him in his manysidedness, as a suc-
cessful man of affairs, as an active citizen, or as a warm
friend ever ready with advice and helpfor his neighbors. It
is enough to say that to know him is an inspiration to nobler
thoughts and better deeds.
Bold and fearless against wrong in any of its protean
forms, yet, with a gentleness almost Womanly, he has led the
Way through many a trying hour, and in victory with equal
poise and centering, gave assurance that all the issues are
Worthy of the struggle.
Safe in leadership, Wise in counsel, and sane in purpose,
he is truly and reverently the "grand old man" of the Board
of the Trustees.

V ELAWARE COLLEGE is situated at
F-is :E Newark, a quiet, well-ordered, and
f i hospitable Village of fifteen hundred
ETX f5 Q1Q f inhabitants in the northwestern part
" W '54 of the State. Newark is connected
S 'W A3 3 with Philadelphia, Wilmington, Bal-
K C I I D timore and Washington by the Penn-
Q3' sylvania, and Baltimore and Ohio
if Railroads, and there are few points
in Delaware or in the Peninsular
counties of Maryland distant from the Village more than a
few hours by rail. The region about Newark is one of the
most healthful and beautiful on the Atlantic slope. The site
of the College, near the center of the town, is one of unusual
charm. The village has a supply of excellent water and is
lighted by electricity.
Delaware College was chartered in 1833 by Act of the
Delaware Legislature, and the doors of the College were
first opened to students in May of the following year. The
College had been doing for a quarter of a century an import-
ant work, not only for Delaware, but as well for neighboring
parts of Pennsylvania and Maryland, when by a succession
of misfortunes she was forced in the spring of 1859 to close
her doors. .
Eleven years later the College was resuscitated, having
meanwhile been designated by Act of the Delaware Legisla-
ture as beneficiary under the Act of Congress apportioning
to each of the several States large areas of public lands to
form the basis of endowments for colleges especially de-
voted to the teaching of Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts,
and Military Tactics. This Act of Congress, commonly
known as the "Morrill Bill," from its originator, Senator
Morrill of Vermont, declares that the colleges made bene-
ficiary under its provisions shall have as their leading ob-
ject, "without excluding other scientific and classical studies
and including Military Tactics, to teach such branches of
learning as are related to Agriculture and the Mechanic
Arts it it it in order to promote the liberal and practical
education of the industrial classes in the several pursuits
and professions of life." In consideration of the designa-
tion and establishment of Delaware College as the institu-
tion to be provided by the State of Delaware in accordance
with- the provisions of the Act of Congress in question, "a
joint and equal interest in the grounds, buildings, libraries
and vested funds of the College proper" was conveyed to the
State of Delaware, and equal representation upon the Board
of Trustees was given the State.
The Board of Trustees consists of Hfteen members, rep-
resenting the original Board, and fifteen members on the
part of the State appointed by the Governor, five from each
of the three counties. The Governor of the State and the
President of the College are members ex-oiicio.
In 1888, by Act of the Delaware Legislature, the Dela-
ware College Agricultural Experiment Station was estab-
lished as a department of the College under the provisions
of an Act of Congress approved March 2, 1887, commonly
known as the "Hatch Bill," appropriating 315,000 annually
for the purpose of "acquiring and diffusing among the
people of the United States useful and practical information
on the subjects connected with agriculture and to promote
scientinc investigation and experiment respecting the prin-
ciples and applications of Agricultural Science under direc-
tion of the college or colleges established in each of the
States and Territories" in accordance with the provisions of
the "Morrill Bill."
The "Adams Bill," approved March 16, 1906, appro-
priating 35,000 for the first year and increasing this amount
by 32,000 a year until it eventually reaches 315,000, makes
possible the still further expansion of the work of the Ex-
periment Station along lines set down by the law for the de-
velopment of Agricultural Science by means of research and
Delaware College is beneficiary also under a further
Act of Congress, known as the "New Morrill Bill," approved
August 20, 1890, which appropriated for the year then cur-
rent 315,000 to each State for the "Land Grant Colleges"
and provided for the increase of the appropriation by 31,000
each year until it should reach 325,000 a year. Delaware
College receives annually four-fifths of this appropriation,
one-fifth, in accordance with the provisions of the bill, being
applied to the maintenance and support of the College at
Dover for the education of colored students.
This Act was supplemented by the passage of the "Nel-
son,Bill," approved March 4, 1907, providing for an appro-
priation of 35,000 for the year ending June 30, 1908, and a
subsequent annual increase in appropriation of 35,000 until
it reaches 325,000, thus making an annual income of 350,-
000 from the national government. Delaware College will
receive four-fifths of this amount annually, the rest going
to the college for the colored race at Dover. .
The appropriations provided for in this Act are to be
applied "to instruction in Agriculture, the Mechanic Arts,
the English Language and the various branches of mathe-
matical, physical, natural and economic sciences With special
reference to their applications in the industries of life, and
to the facilities for such instruction."
THE GYLfINrX SIUM
Stimulated by the increased income provided by these
recent Acts, Delaware College has, Within the past few
years, enlarged her corps of instructors and greatly in-
creased her equipment of apparatus and appliances, so that
she is now vastly better enabled than ever before in her
Whole history to perform her appointed duty.
The buildings of the College, situated in an ample and
beautiful campus, shaded by trees as old as the institution
itself, consist of the recently improved Dormitory, a large
brick structure originally the sole College building for all
purposes and still occupied, not only for lodgings, but also
for laboratories, the old library, the literary societies and
recitation rooms, Recitation Hall, a handsome brick build-
ing erected by the State in 18915 the wood-working and
machine shop, where are housed machinery and apparatus
for a thorough practical course of instruction in the me-
chanic artsg the Gymnasium, which is admirably fitted for
The Experiment Station, which contains the offices, li-
braries and laboratories of the station workers, occupies a
building on the College grounds. The station has also a
green-house, with laboratory adjoining, in the rear campus,
and several buildings used for storage and other purposes in
the conduct of the various lines of experimental work.
The Legislature of 1903 appropriated 3S15,000, payable
in two equal annual installments, and the workshops have
been greatly enlarged and are now entirely adequate for the
present needs of the College. The first floor is equipped with
wood-working and iron-working machinery and on the sec-
ond floor are found large drafting-rooms and laboratories.
The sum of 325,000 appropriated by the Delaware Leg-
islature in the year 1901 for rebuilding and repairs at Dela-
ware College, was expended mainly in repairing and enlarg-
ing the dormitory. The building was replastered through-
out, and the floors were made secure by the introduction of
new timbers. The sleeping rooms were made comfortable
and attractive, and the Oratory was remodeled and redeco-
rated so that it is now one of the handsomest auditoriums in
the State. New fronts, corresponding in style with the
Doric portico of the main entrance, were placed on the
wings, and at right angles to the wings and parallel to the
main structure were built three-story extensions. - These im-
provements have increased the number of sleeping rooms,
and furnished handsome apartments for recitation rooms
and laboratoriesl ' '
The appropriation of 315,000 which was made by the
Legislature of Delaware over a year ago has been applied to
the building of a Drill Hall and Gymnasium. In the base-
ment of the building will be found shower baths, plunge
baths and lockers for the use of the students. Provision has
been made for a swimming pool, which we hope will soon be
completed. The main floor will serve as a drill hall and
At the last session of the Legislature of Delaware a bill
was passed authorizing' a commission to apply twenty thous-
and dollars to "the purchase and equipment of a farm to be
managed and conducted by the Board of Trustees of Dela-
ware College at Newark, for experimental purposes in pro-
viding efficient instruction in Agriculture and in conducting
investigations and original research in connection with the
Experiment Station established as a department of the Col-
lege." A farm of 217 acres, lying a mile south of the Col-
lege, has been bought. It is most attractively situated and
furnishes excellent means for practical instruction in Agri-
The College buildings are heated by steam and lighted
by electricity and are supplied with waterby the town water
A considerable part of the rear campus is occupied as
an athletic Held, which affords excellent facilities for out-
door sports and games.
Tuition is free to all students from the State of Dela-
ware, so that the College constitutes a part of our system of
free public instruction. She places Within reach of the
young men of the State a thorough collegiate training with
no other cost than that of living and the provision of neces-
sary books and a few inconsiderable fees to cover expenses
incurred by the institution. Her work is laid out upon
broad lines, and the culture of liberal learning and the prac-
tical usefulness of the applied sciences are equally empha-
sized in her scheme of education. While, in pursuance of the
special aims of her organization, stress is laid upon those de-
partments which build up good citizenship and useful man-
hood, the place so wisely provided in the foundation of the
"Land Grant" Colleges is given to the refining graces and
amenities of tlm: older learning.

Mr. George G. Evans had been so long and so honorably
connected with the management of Delaware College as a
member of the Board of Trustees that the tidings of his
death came with a distinct shock to everyone when it was
announced at the opening of the College in 1904 that he had
just passed away. He had been identiiied with the College
for so many years in its struggles and growth that it was
hard to realize that he was no more..
He was born June 1, 1815, and died September 16, 1904,
having lived and worked all but a few years in early man-
hood hard by the shades of the old campus. During his
early years he served as a clerk to a merchant in Baltimore
and there learned the principles and the habits which make
for success in commercial enterprises. He returned to New-
ark and at once entered upon a career of prosperity char-
acterized by honest and straightforward dealing. He knew
the struggles of the College and, in 1856, when he was elec-
ted a member of the Governing Board, he became its Secre-
tary. In a few years afterwards the College was closed,
owing to the unsettled condition along the border due to the
approaching conflict of the North and South. He was very
active in having the College reorganized after the close of
the War, and was largely instrumental in having it made
beneficiary of the Land Script Act of 1862 by virtue of which
it was enabled to offer richer courses of study than ever be-
fore in its history. He Was chosen Treasurer of the Board
of Trustees in 1870 and held the joint offices of Secretary
and Treasurer until 1896, When, feeling the infirmities of his
years, he asked to be relieved from the arduous duties of the
dual position. His son, Charles B. Evans, Esq., was elected
Secretary and Treasurer of the Board and still holds the
position which he and his father have so long ably filled.
Mr.,Evans up to the last occupied a place on the Com-
mittee on Instruction and Discipline and the ,Prudential
Committee, and, besides these permanent committees, served
on numerous special committees that were appointed from
time to time as the affairs of the College demanded them.
Mr. Evans brought into the Board of Trustees ripe business
training and energetic habits Which, combined with a mas-
terful personality, Won the confidence of his fellows and en-
abled him to guide and direct the affairs of the institution
to the end he aimed at. By his astuteness and uprightness,
by his probity and fearlessness he managed the affairs of the
College in times when everything looked discouraging and
brought it safely into its present condition of enlarged prop-
erty and Wide usefulnessy He displayed the same indomi-
table energy in the Work of the institution he so much loved
as he used in his private business and out of the Wealth of
his Wisdom he gave his best.
He Was a kind father, an active citizen and a good
neighbor. His memory will be ever cherished as the Nestor
of the Board of Trustees of Delaware College.

On June 20th, 1882, four members were elected to the
old College Board. Of these Dr. Peter D. Keyser, of Phila-
delphia, died in the spring of 1897, while Mr. Hayes and Dr.
Kollock are still serving the College with the vigor of their
Death claimed the fourth when, after a short illness
following a prolonged period of weakness, Mr. James Hos-
singer laid down the burden of his busy life, December 3,
1906. Born May 14, 1838, in the neighborhood of Newark,
he was prepared for College at the Newark Academy, and in
the fall of 1853 he entered the Freshman class of this insti-
tution. In due time he was graduated with the degree of
Bachelor of Arts, having completed the studies of the Classi-
cal course with much credit to himself and to his teachers.
A very companionable man, he made many warm friend-
ships while at College, and he treasured them to the last.
Immediately upon graduation he entered upon the ac-
tive duties of life and became very much interested in scien-
tific and practical agriculture. After successfully managing
his farms for years he retired from actively carrying on
their operations and in 1887 he came to Newark to live, not
losing however his fondness for out-door life. He conducted,
among other enterprises, the agency for the Chester County

HEN one has a good tale to tell one should be
brief," and "Brevity is the soul of wit," are the
two maxims which our class has had drilled
into it for the past four years. Whether this
history of the only class of the twentieth cen-
tury is a good one, it is for you to judge, but
anyway it will be a brief story.
Our tale starts with thirty-eight freshmen at
Delaware College in the fall of 1904. Up to this
time we had never heard of one another, but when the
trouble-seeking Sophs were turned loose on us the first
morning of college, let me whisper to you we were not long
in getting acquainted. , We were not at all anxious either to
break that old saying, "Birds of a feather flock togetherf,
for we soon found out that there was safety in numbers.
Our Hrst deed worthy of mention was the defeat of the
Sophs in the annual class rush. But this Victory did not
make us conceited, because we realized that we were Fresh-
men, and tried to do only things worthy of Freshmen.
We elected Charles R. Brown president for the first
term, and he filled the oflice with the dignity of a Senior.
We soon became very enthusiastic about foot-ball, as all
Freshmen are. Although we could furnish but two players,
J. Frank Baldwin and J. Baker Taylor, for the Varsity, yet
the fine work done by our men on the scrub cannot be too
highly commended. After doing our best for the Varsity
team, we tried to stand alone and defeat the Sophs, but after
forty minutes of hard play we were beaten by the honorable
score of 6 to 0.
We came back the second term well versed in college
duty and life, especially the life. Homer W. Collins was
elected president for the rest of the year.
Our next branch of athletics was track work. Here we
were able to furnish two runners, J. Frank Baldwin and
Homer W. Collins, out of the four to represent Old Delaware
at the Penn meet. Our Freshman baseball men were out
working early in the spring, and before the season was over
our team had played many snappy games. We bluffed the
Sophomore delegation, and supplied a third baseman for the
Varsity in the person of J. Baker Taylor. We won the an-
nual meet at commencement time, an honor which has never
before or since been won by a Freshman class at Delaware.
Baldwin, Collins, Sibley, Ward and Newman were the chief
But we would have you know that we were not only
strong in athletics, but in other college work as well. Clar-
ence Killen not only represented us in the inter-society de-
bate, but also received honorable mention from the judges.
Then again we furnished an abundance of good material to
the literary societies.
We returned in September, 1905, with twenty-six jolly
Sophomores, joined by four new students. Of course the
first thing to do was to get busy and defeat the Freshmen,
which we did in quick order. Then we tried to teach them a
few things, and since they were a very apt class, they soon
caught on and were not at all troublesome the rest of the
year. We chose William Draper as president, and being a
quiet fellow, he was just the man for the place during our
troublesome Sophomore year. We elected Taylor captain of
our class foot ball team and trimmed the Freshmen to the
tune of 11 to 0. We had many men on the Varsity foot ball
team this year who were a great help in winning so many
We elected Taylor captain of our class foot ball team
and trimmed the Freshmen to the tune of 11 to 0. We had
many men on the Varsity foot ball team this year who were
a great help in winning so many games.
The whole class was getting along finely in their studies
and everyone was doing good work, until Dr. Wolf got busy
and flunked our entire class in chemistry. But the way we
went after that re-exam satisfied him that we knew just as
much about it as any other class he had passed. '
One of the great accomplishments this year was to win
the class championship in base ball. This entitled us to have
our numerals put on the cup offered by the faculty, which
honor every class strives for four years to gain.
The greatest pleasure of this year, however, was the end
of it, because our Sophomore year was worriment all the way
through. If we had had the Freshmen only to contend with
we would have been all right, but the '07 class was still sore
at the way we had utrimmedw them, and were constantly
Hbutting in," making it very disagreeable, since We had to
keep Juniors as well as Freshmen in line.
We came back the following fall proud to be upper class-
men. J. Baker Taylor was chosen president for the year.
After doing our best for the foot ball team we proceeded
to make plans for our one great object of the year, our Ju-
nior Prom. The dance came off in February and was a
great success. We had by this time reached a literary period
and Harry A. Miller, Jr., flooded the college paper with
stories and poetry. This year we made a great fight for the
annual track meet, but lost out by a few points. The com-
mencement dance with all its splendor marked the end of
our happy and prosperous year.
Then for the last fall we came back to Old Delaware to
take up our college work. We had reached the position of
We were only nineteen strong, comparatively few but
very select, according to the way the faculty had cut our
number down from forty-two. We elected J. Earl Newman
With our men as captains and managers we endeavored
to raise the athletic standard of the college, which we have
done with a marked success, as we now have athletic rela-
tion with the leading colleges in the North as well as in the
Thus we see that the class of 1908 has always been com-
posed of loyal members, each interested in all class affairs,
and actively favoring any movement for the benefit of Old

HE expectations which were raised on Sep-
tember 18, 1905, by the formation of a
new body, the class of 1909, have to the
present time been more' than realized.
The fighting spirit, displayed that day in
the face of great odds, has stayed with us
and has been responsible for manya "win-
out" against even more formidable combinations than the
1908 aggregation. On that day we were overwhelmed by
superior numbers but our spirit remained unbroken and
made itself felt later, when in a wild, reckless flight of
imagination, the Sophomores thought to secure a snapshot
of McIntyre, cased for shipment in a barrel like so many
hundredweight of freight. But that picture failed to de-
velop and the grass is just now beginning to grow again on
the front campus where we gently made known our wishes
in the matter.
Realizing the ineffectiveness of conspicuously painting
up numerals, and then being obliged just as ignominiously
to obliterate all traces of such artistic efforts, we decided to
depart from a worn-out, featureless custom and to institute
something new, which succeeding classes, however, contrary
to our hopes, have failed through lack of ability or courage
to imitate. Accordingly on November 13 a public sale ofthe
individual members of the class of 1908 was advertised to
take place two days later. The hand bills set forth in glow-
ing tribute the rare specimens to be auctioned off, but de-
spite the fact that they found their way broadcast over the
State from Wilmington to Seaford, the sale did not take
place owing to the absence of bidders. But unlike the nu-
merals of other classes, the 1909 posters remained in a posi-
tion to command attention until removed by hands other
than ours. Guiding us through all of it were our class of-
ficers, "Fat" Wingett, President, "Kid" Josephs, Vice-Presi-
dent, and "Dutch" Keppel, Secretary.
As we became accustomed to the routine of life at Del-
aware and began to look around us for means of distinguish-
ing ourselves, it became apparent 'that we had the right
sort of material, both on the athletic Held and in the many
fields which offer opportunity for a display of mental
capabilities. Josephs, Papperman and Wingett made places
on the foot ball team and later Robin was elected captain of
the basket ball team, an honor very seldom conferred on a
Freshman. When the base ball season came around, 1909
was represented in the first game by five men, two of whom
failed to make good. In the ranks of debaters our bright,
particular star was Hamilton, who justified his title as the
champion debater of the College by defeating Warrington in
a special contest for the supremacy. In addition to Hamil-
ton, Wingett and Papperrnan secured places on the society
debating teams and won prizes in debate and oratory.
In social activities we were also foremost. On January
26, 1906, the entire class occupied box seats at "Dock's," and
later in the evening enjoyed the honor of being the nrst
Freshman class at Delaware to hold a banquet. It occurred
at a most propitious time, immediately following an English
"exam" of "Doc" Dawson's, lasting from 8.45 a. m. to 12.45
p. m., and to say that we enjoyed ourselves after such an or-
deal is stating the fact very modestly. The fact that the ma-
jority of us were later to receive Hunks for that very "exam"
did not dampen our ardor a particle. Perhaps the fear of
such an outcome even added to our keen relish of the menu.
Both succeeding Freshmen classes have held banquets about
the same time of the year and the custom seems to be per-
manently instituted. On the whole we were well-represent-
ed in all branches of college activities and it must have been
apparent to the Faculty and the other classes that we, as a
majority, were not in college simply for our health. '
When we reconvened in September, 1906, several mem-
bers were absent. Hamilton, Raymond and Horrigan had
left college and a few others had decided with a little per-
suasion from the Faculty, to cast their lots with the class of
1910. But to balance things up we received three new men,
MacSorley, "Hap" Ward and "Harp" McGarvey, who have
proved very valuable additions to the class. The first act of
our official career was to elect officers for the year. Jimmie
Adkins was chosen President, Brook Jackson, Vice-Presi-
dent, and as Keppel had proved to be a very good extorter of
class dues, he was retained as Secretary and Treasurer. A
large Freshman class kept us busy for a while and inci-
dentally threatened to exhaust the town water supply. And
athletics claimed our attention again. In the annual Fresh-
man-Sophomore game we were victorious, winning the game
on a fieldlof mud. McGarvey proved to be an all-around
athlete, making the scrub foot ball team, the 'Varsity basket
ball and 'Varsity base ball team easily, and Ward showed
folks that he could play basket ball. When the base ball
season came around we made use of our material and won
the college championship, which performance we hope to
repeat this year. In the inter-class field meet the 1909 relay
team was victorious, and Prouse, the captain, won first place
in the mile and half-mile, clipping five seconds off the record
for the latter and winning a medal. V
Returning in September, 1907, it seemed strange to us
to be merely spectators of the class-rush, and I suspect that
more than one of us was itching to shed his coat and wade
into it. However we restrained our warlike impulses and
contented ourselves with showing Sophomores to the new
men to turn over or separating two Freshmen pressing each
other fiercely for the greater glory of their class.
Early in October the class election was held and Palmer
was made President, Dyke Stewart, Vice-President, McIn-'
tire, Treasurer g and Watts, Secretary.
Up to date this year we have had to content ourselves
with the basket ball championship, easily secured from the
Freshmen, two representatives in the intercollegiate debate
with Rutgers, namely, Prouse and Pappermhan, and two 'Var-
sity captains, Adkins, base ball, and Prouse, track.
In reviewing our career which is drawing rapidly to a
close, it is not vainglorious to say that the class of 1909 has
amply justified its existence and fully proved its usefulness
in the eyes both of the Faculty and of the other classes, and
if our ei-forts have not always achieved the success we strove
for, let it be ascribed to faults of execution rather than to
any lack of spirit or loyalty. One motive has ever urged
us on-the Welfare and upbuilding of Old Delaware, and if
We have failed it is owing to no fault of the heart.

and immediately began to practice the English language. After obtaining a, pre-
paratory education at the Central High School of Philadelphia he wandered for
some time in the wide world, and Ilnally drifted into Delaware College. His
motto is, "I am here to get a college education and I must not let my studies in-

there he got one of the Doetorls lemons. Jimmy is a good fellow and well liked
because he can appreciate jokes from everyone except Gibbs. Aside from the
fact that he Writes a great many Volumes "in letters" to Woodbridge,-New Jer-

Robert McLean Carswell is thc greatest aspirant for military honors in the
Junior Class. He knows, or thinks he knows, more about military matters than
the lieutenant himself. Bob thinks that he can become a civil engineer because
his father follows that profession. Nothing is discussed in class or said out of I
class that Bob doesn't know or has not heard all about it from his 'tpopf' Un-
fortunately, however. the professors do know a few things which our friend has
not yet mastered. But he has learned what Class Spirit is and has always been
ready and anxious to give the class a "boost" whenever the opportunity pre-
sented itself. Since we have heard no reports of any love affairs, we assume
that he is not crazy over the girls. Although Bob may be a little more settled
on that point than the rest of us, nevertheless the old saying still holds true that
"one is never too old to learn." I-le is a good fellow and we wish him success as
a civil engineer, and also as the general of Company C.

This solemn looking chap was born very young. and from that time to the
present he has been fond of sleeping. He remained awake, however, long enough
to get suflicient credits, with the aid of a few exams, to enter the class of '09.
He has the peculiar faculty of falling in love with every girl he meets. In his
Freshman year he roomed with his brother, and it was rumored that the latter
was the only man in college who could manage him. But since his brother has
graduated Les runs the college pretty much as he pleases. Leslie is a quiet and
a, good hard-working student, "sometimes" His motto is, "Love could teach a
monarch to be wise." Owing to Leslie's poor health and his low stature, he has
been unableto enter any of the athletic events. He has. however, always shown
up very well in class scraps, and is one of our professional rooters. We have,
however, just recently learned of another peculiar characteristic of this humble
young man. Wlieneveie he is introduced to a young lady he is always sure to
finds out the 1ady's address. Then he invariably writes and his letters are pa-
thetic, full of love and tenderness. Besides his love affairs, however. Les does
very well in his work and unless he gets married before June, '09, he will un-
doubtedly get his sheepskin with the "bunch,"

We call this fellow Gibbs, but more frequently Lizzie. He is not at all like
a lady in gentleness, for he is one of the biggest rough-housers in college-"a
diamond in the roughf' You could easily spot this young man in the dining-
room if you never saw him before. Three orders of meat and potatoes, six side
dishes of vegetables, his own dessert, two extras, and his neighbor's. I-Ie is not
a man who is slow of speech, either. Try this expression half a dozen times real
fast, "Going to Wfilmington to-night." Thank you: that is Lizzie exactly. Nearly
all college men are great when it comes tdfussing the ladiesg "Lizzie" is a good
hand at it because she gets so much practice. But we are informed that the
girls "kid" him a great deal-we learned this from a person who was there ,at
the same time Lizzie was. But with all his bad traits Lizzie has many good
ones which we cannot overlook. He is quite a good Hrst baseman and has done
very good service in that capacity for his class. He is a decorator of no mean
sort and was one of Joseph's right hand nien in decorating for the Junior Prom.
He has also a good hearty he will give you almost anything he has, and never
hesitates to ask you for anything he wants. If.he works hard he will graduate
with us in June, 1909. -

The history of this lad, having been governed somewhat by fairies, should
be, to a certain extent, read like a. fairy tale. Hence, as the fairy tales run,
once upon a time, about the year --. something happened in VVyoming-no one
can tell where it is in Delaware-which caused the HUUITQN to awake from its
its long and undisturbed sleep. It was the nrst appeaiance of Jackson No, 1
that created the excitement, as anyone with so romantic a name would do.
Brooks found his little town too dead for him after a time, and he came to Dela-
ware College. Since he has been here he has participated in athletics sliffhtly
. D . v
but is better known for his work as a song artistx He has. however, by his
good hitting at the proper tirne, saved his class from defeat, having knocked a
home run or two different occasions with two men down in the ninth. If he can
make as good a hit in Elkton as he has done in the base ball line, he will surely
receive our congratulations. Notwithstanding, Brook is a mighty congenial fel-
low, and, his standing in feminine circles is attested to not only by Baker Tay-
lor, but also by his collection of rare and wonderful photographs, and his hair-
splitting experiences in social circles.

This young man has always been called "The Kid," not because he is dBll'
cate. however, but merely because he is short. Some of the girls called him
'fTow Headg" but as we clidn't feel that we could lose "The Kid" for anything
like that, we Wouldn't change his name. "The Kidl' began with the idea. of re-
maining only a short time with us, but he soon got out of that notion. He took
up the Latin Scientidc Course in the beginning, but later changed to the Me-
chanical Engineering Couise. The Kid is a good all-around man and can and
will do almost anything except make a speech or recite, two things which seem
to be out of his line. He is one of the best little scrappers in college. 'lfhe first
night he came here he showed the Sophs that he could "rough it up a bit" with
the best of them. The Kid made his best showing on the foot ball team, and
showed us that even a "little fellowl' with pluck could do a great deal. The Kid
has a little love affair in Lancaster which he has been nursing since "We were
a couple of Kids." But with it all the Kid is "all wool and a yard wide," guaran-
teed not to Wear shinyg and the sole regret of his friends is that they cannot se-
cure a place for him as class orator.

quite a good deal. His favorite expression is usually heard after an examina-

what he meant by his "but," However, Freurly gave him a "butt" which nearly
killed "Kep." Freudy is the only man so far who has had ,the pleasure of giv-

up a good pull with the professors, but they wouldrft work on Freudy. If noth-
ing unfortunate happens he is sure to be there with a clean record when we ar-
rive at the great reckoning day in June, 1909. I-Iere are best wishes to Kep.

Harp has the reputation of having had very good preparatory course before he
entered Delaware, and he has been working this to death. He came into the
Class of '09 in '06 and has been a good representative member. He is a Jack of
all trades, especially good at telling "Irish yarns," and then gets angry because
everyone doesn't believe them. No matter how good a yarn you tell him, he'l1 al-
ways go you one better. If you caught a Iish eight inches in length falthough
that might be a yarnj his would be nine. Harp says that he has written stories
that have been accepted by the publishers of the "Black Cat? but he would
never write one for K'The Review." Woiidei' why? You can't lose Harp.
though we are not afraid of him. I-Ie'll graduate all right and come off with
honors if you don't watch him closely. You will notice by his record that he is a
good athlete and he is also a good scholar. Besides this he has worked up quite
a pull with Robby, and that helps some. Here's good luck to Harp.

This fair, fat, and handsome looking specimen of humanity made its first
grunts in Wilmington, the "suburb" of Newark. Mac was the leading lady in
the barrel scrap in our Freshman year. Unfortunately the Sophs could not find
a hogshead large enough to cover the upper and lower extremities of this dwarf.
He looked as if he had gone in bathing and that someone had stolen his clothes,
and he was making his way -toward home as best he could. Of course, we broke
that little playlet up, and the Sophs did not succeed in getting a picture of our
Mac. There are many worse men in the world than Mac, for he has a heart as
big as a skyscraperg at least that is what the people at Montchanin say, and
they ought to know. Mac belongs to the jolly Civils and they Hnd a good class-
mate and companion in him. He is also a "good Indianf' and it will be well for
us to keep our eyes on him, because he will surely graduate with bells on,
"O woman! lovely woman! Nature made thee
To temper man. NVe had been brutes Without you.

Amazing brightness, purity, and truth,
Eternal joy, and everlasting lovef'

Where "Mao, first opened those large blue eyes we are not certain. Those
same beautiful eyes have since broken the hearts of many fair ladies. Carleton
prepared at the Central High School, of Philadelphia, where he studied occasion-
ally, Since he has come here, however, no one has ever caught him doing such
a thing. It is a. matter of principle with him never to be seen doing anything
like work. If Mac ever took the trouble to think about a goal for his life, it
surely must have been to determine the least amount of work that is necessary
to complete a college education. VVe know Mac has the ability and we feel sure
he will get his sheepskin with the rest of the "bunch" if he only follows this
fatherly advice below, "Don't fuss the women too muchg grind occasionallyg at-

Behold, ladies and gentlemen, this noble youth! To look at him would you
think that he is studying for the ministry? -However, this does not interfere
with his taking part in college activities. for where Delaware is Gus is also. YVoe
unto the Freshman thmt got his d' ' l'
- C f t iscip me under this most eflicient trainer. This
brawny specimen left the field of Woilt to be with usg he realized that there was
higher game in the world for him, and he went gunning. iVe are glad Gus de-
cidedyto come here, for he has an abundance of what the bovs C111 "college
A. C .
spun. and he is happiest when he is doing something for "Old Delaware."
This is true in his studies, in his scraps, in his debating and oratorical ability,
and above all in his athletic sports. His general characteristics warrant him to
b 1 . . .
e a loyal standby as ZL friend in need. with enough gray matter to drive the
Wheels of responsibility and trust.
"Give unto me made lowly wise.
The spirit of self-sacriticeg
The conlidence of reason give,
And in the light of truth thy bondman let me live!"
SAMUEL MONTGOMERY PARRISH . . ........ Wilmington, Del.
Atlienaean Literary Society, Orchestra '05-'06-'07-'08, Vice President
of the Athletic Association.
After looking upon this handsome specimen, please do not take him to be a
French singing teacher, for he is only the leader of our band. Whenever you are
about the college and you hear a strange noise, you can make up your mind that
it is either Derby's motor cycle or Sam Parrish making a noise like an automo-
bile. Sam is a hard student. Some of the boys pronounce him a "grindg" but if
he grinds his head off from now until his death, he will only get a decent burial.
His favorite expression is "Darn it." At the early part of his career at Dela-
ware. Sam was a very quiet sort of fellow, but lately he has become quite noisy.
One morning at about 2.30 o'clock, in company with a few bad ones, who must
have led Sam astray, having turned out the lights he played a game of ten pins
on poverty row with bottles. This was his Iirst fall-in with the rough house
gang, but since that time he has become quite like a Sophomore instead of a
Junior. He has even been seen with a bucket of water. What will he do next?
Sam has quite a start on the other boys, however. having completed a great deal
of his senior work this year. That means that he will have a singing course
next year. That he will graduate with the "bunch," if he returns, is a cinch, and
we certainly hope that he will be with us next year.
"If music be the food of love, play ony
Give me excess of it, that surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken, and so die.
That strain again! it had a dying fall.
Oh it came o'er my ear like the sweet sound
That breathes upon a bank of violets,
Stealing and giving odor!"

Although co-education is prohibited at the present time in Delaware Col-
lege, this is number two of our girls. Ladies and gentlemen, I have the pleasure
of introducing Miss Mary Pr-ouse. People often say that ministers sons are
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?. but surely Mary is an exception to the rule. Mary is the sweet-
est sugar cox n in the class. and there's a "Chick" after the corn. Miss Mary was
caught one time smoking a cigarette, but since that time she has apologized to
the class and we all take her to -be a respectable lady now. Prouse has made
quite a recoid as a runner, as he has in his possession the record for the 880
yards clash. He is also captain of the 1908 Track Team and we are sure that he
willdevelop a fast team. He is also quite an orator and has taken prizes for
excellence in speaking. Prouse is a good all-around fellow and will surely grad-
uate with the class. I-Ie has our very best wishes to become a successful min-
"In arguing, too, the parson own'tl his skill.
For e'en though vanquislfd he could argue stillg
While words of learned length and thundering sound

And still they gaz'd, and still the wonder grew
That one small head could carry all he knew."

The first we heard of Robin was when he was walking up Broadway in New
York eating a banana, peel and all. "Mark" had just landed from some foreign
port. We don't know what port. but we feel satisfied that they didn't grow
bananas there. Robin is dubbed the "Jester" of the class, because he is con-
tinually springing what he calls jokes and is disappointed because we don't
laugh at him. However, Mark is a good boy and if you want him to think you
the same, just take him in to Powell's and buy him an oyster stew. If you buy
Mark a stew he will give you credit for it and will tell every one he meets that
you are a good fellow. Wheii he first came to college Robin made quite a hit on
the basket ball team and he has developed into a strong player, Marc also made
good this year on the foot ball team at right end.
"I have touched the highest point of all my greatness,

XVhen John was born he answered "1" to the wo1'ld's call for a life that
should embody a shrewd personage. an artful plotter, a good mathematician,
with a ton of sand, and an inexhaustible amount of grit, all of which would de-
velop into one diminutive creature sometimes' nick-named "man," YVhen John
first arrived at college he was a very nice, quiet little boy, but "ye gods!" how
he has changed. He can talk more and say less than any six men in the class.
John, however, is a "wiz" in math-in fact, he is our "mathematical microbe."
But there is "nothing doing" for John when it comes to languages. VVhen he
was a Freshman he was the victim of the bucket brigade. He was told to go
into a room and then run out, yelling Fire! Fire! Fire! John did as directed and
he had no sooner said lire than he was drenched with three buckets of water.
He has, however, been taking revenge and since that time has been playing the
fireman himself. Although small in stature Rothrock made the foot ball
team and held his position the whole year. John is aspiring to be a. civil en-
gineer anfl we hope that he will have great success in his work- We do not
think that he will have any trouble to graduate if he will just keep quiet long
enough to let the Faculty push him through.

Henry Van Dyke Stewart, alias "Gimpty," alias "Dyke." It is too bad, gen-
tlemen, but it is a fact that Gimpty hails from New Castle. Gimpty doesn't
"stoop to conquer," but from all accounts he hopes to conquer "stoops." Every-
thing went lovely with Gimpty until he struck advanced English and History
with Doc Sypherd. "Nut sed." He promised to, bring a lady friend of his to a
base ball game one day, and of course we all wanted to see her. But there must
have been a mistake, for he was seen coming up the path leading a little girl by
the hand. And then he had the nerve to tell us that she was at least fourteen
years of age. But that's all right, Dyke, the little ones will grow. Gimpty is
making a specialty of chemistry, following in the footsteps of Dr. Wolf. If he
continues in his work as faithfully as he began he will surely find the long
searched for philosophers stone, or probably the constitution of muddy water.
But if you know Dyke you will find that he is a good worker, and if he doesn't
become chief chemist of the United States Steel Corporation he will be tirst as-
sistant to Tiffy. He has our best wishes for success.

Al. Shaw came to us early in September of '05 carrying copies of the Black
Cat and Punch. His favorite expression is, "That reminds me." Al. is quite a
punster. But since Al. does not intend to be a rival of Mark Twain, but to fol-
low up the profession of mechanical engineeringwve must ask him to"soft pedali'
a bit. If you want to find Shaw whenever you happen to be in Wilmington, just
go to Eighth and Market streets, for that's where he stays. Of course Shaw has
the same malady that the rest of the tribe are troubled With, namely, that of
fussin'-the ladies!! But most of us are not quite as fortunate as Shaw, since he
has several violent love affairs on most of the time, and is at present Usparkin
pretty heavily." Shaw was making quite a record at college when he was taken
sick with typhoid fever. This has'kept'him out of college for some time, but We
are glad to Welcome him back again. W'e give him our best Wishes for a suc-
cessful career, and We feel sure that he will soon be doing some great mechani-

Tom Tinney is a man who came to us in '06. He was formerly with the class
of '08, but as that tribe didn't suit him he thought he would drop a year and
graduate with a good class. Look at this young man very carefully. He is tall,
being over six feet in height, has auburn hair. and is good looking. n Tom has
been heard whistling the tune of "Harrigan," but we have since learned that in-
stead of saying "I-Iarrian, that's me," he says, "Harrington, that's us." Yes,
Tom has a very serious love case. Just to show how intense this is, we will ex-
plain. We will first tell you about his horse, which plays an important part in
every country boy's love affairs. Tom owned a horse which he called Napoleon.
because you could see his "bony-part." He always kept a blanket over him
while he ate in order to prevent the wind from blowing the hay out from be-
tween his ribs. However. the horse was a very intelligent animal. Tom was in a
hurry one night to catch the 7.23 to see "her." The train was moving out Just
as he arrived at the stationg so he just threw the reins upon the an1mal's back,
rushed out. and caught the train. VVhen he returned five hours later the horse
was still standing on the same spot. Torn's motto is, "I am just as happy as lf
I had good sense." His ambition is to be able to talk and read French as Well as
Prof. L. Smith. Tom is a good fellow and if he quits smoking so many "coffin
naifisl wie would not hesitate to predict for him a bright future. I-Iere's good
luc 0 'orn.

Richard Joseph NVard. VVhat! have you never heard of Happy VVard. the
man with "the smile that won't come off?" This handsome specimen of human-
ity came to us in '06, and he has never regretted his choice. Happy was seized
with the ambition to become chief engineer of the Panama Canal or the Bound-
ary Commission, and therefore came to Delaware College. "All work and no
play makes Jack a dull boy." This is I-Iappy's motto, and he tries to live up to
it faithfully. He never seems to worry and no one ever saw him in a bad humor
for many minutes at a time. He holds strictly to the old adage, "Laugh and the
world laughs with you: weep and you cry by, yourself." Happy may indeed be
classed as one of our mo '
, st successful classmates. He has passed through every
stage, from a grind Csometimes?D to a. spirited member of 1909, loyal to the class
and true to "Old Delaware." Darwin would accept him as an example of evolu-
tion in intellect, in college spirit, in beauty, in society, in love, and in morality.
VVe have no fears for Happy, and wish him the best of success when he enters
upon his Work. With apologies,
"It's good to be merry and wise, .
It's good to be honest and trueg
It's good to support Old Delaware's cause,
And blde by the Gold and the Blue."

X Xvatts. who is small of stature, is our "intellectual microbef' He is one of
those quiet fellows who are afraid to say much even though they do know a
little. If you- are acquainted with this fair specimen of a model student, you
will feel the truth of the adage: "History repeats itself." for here we have no
less a personage than Aristotle II. Born on a farm, he has always been a man
with the free and easy going traits of the tillers, of the soil. The boys accuse
him of grinding. but if you speak to him about it he will say that he is only
doing a little work on the side. XVatts has worked up quite a pull with all of the
professors and knows how to draw an A from most of them, except "Brer XVolf:"
but then probably the Dr. doesn't think that his subject is worth an A. Watts
has a weakness for the fair sex, and a violent love affair draws him home quite
a great deal. He can hold his hearers spellhound with tales of adventures which
he has had traveling to and from the "Burg" Should we repeat them, their
genuineness might be doubted, and this would hurt VVatts's feelings. Butt after
all, he has a good head on him. and even if he did come from a small village,
will certainly make good. We predict for him a very bright future.

"Willie" is the most happy-go-lucky man in college. I-Ie very seldom gets
angry at any one except himself. I-lis favorite expression is. " Vlfill the good
Loid ever forgive me for all the time I have loafed?" But ivillie has certainly
become energetic of late. He has Woiked hard and faithfully, as may be seen
by the work he has accomplished in editing this Annual. He has also increased
his energy along the lines of his work at college. so that at the present time he
is in pretty good standing, Eveiyone likes Willie because he is a great
"spouter," and when he gets up to speak everyone listens. He has a voice like
a fog horn and can use it with good effect. He is also a singer and can sing
"coarse or fine" just as his healers Wish. I-Ie continually ravecl about Pittsburg
for two years, but his longing for that place has gradually left him. He is a
man who knows a little about everything and nothing about any one thing.
In fact his sphere of life is so broad. he has so many characteristics that it is
difficult to make any one stand out above the others. If you see a man coming
down the street with a great arm full of books. and whistling for all he is worth,
"go mark him well," professors. for that is sure to be our Vifillie. His ambi-
tion is to be a lawyer and every man in the class wishes WVillie great success in

EPTEMBER nineteen hundred and six saw forty-
eight young men from Delaware, Maryland
and the District of Columbia, assembled as
Freshmen on the campus at Old Delaware.
Upon leaving home I was told that I would meet
here representatives from some of the best
families of our little Diamond State, and I was
not disappointed. Not only in this class did I
meet fellows who were to become lifeglong
in the other classes as well I met boys who have
become college "chums."
Our reception here was in accordance with the univer-
sal law governing the reception of Freshmen. By our su-
perior numbers we were able to whip our oppressors in class
"scraps" In all class games we lost out by the closest mar-
gins during our first year. Although we were not repre-
sented in the 'Varsity Foot Ball Team of 1906 we supplied a
large number of "scrub" men, doing what we could in that
way. We ,were in the same position in basket ball. Two
men made the 'Varsity Base Ball Team in our Freshman year
and a number of others helped on the f'scrub" team. Two
Freshmen broke records at the inter-class athletic contest in
June, Edgar, high jump, and Eliason, hammer throw.
Returning to College in September, 1907, I noticed that
a number of familiar faces were missing. Among them were
fellows who in only one year had won the friendship of all
their fellow students. Among those who dropped out were:
Porter, Bell, Rossell, Plumley, Montgomery and others just
as popular. Beside the empty chairs in the class rooms
these fellows left, they also made gaps in the athletic teams
and in the orchestra.
The class of 1911, entering in September, 1907, was the
largest class ever enrolled at Delaware, and by their su-
perior numbers, easily overwhelmed us in the class scrap.
Re-organizing in our Sophomore year we elected Oliver G.
Hudson President of the class, to succeed John W. Alden,
who had been President during our Freshman year. Several
new men entered the Sophomore class last fall, oisetting
somewhat the losses we had sustained.

HEN college opened on the morning of Septem-
I ber the twelfth, 1907, there' assembled in the
, chapel hall the largest Freshman class ever en-
E rolled at Old Delaware. Between sixty-five and
seventy manly-looking fellows seated them-
selves in the Freshman pews and took part in
the morning exercises.
Te' This imposing scene seemed to take all of
the courage from the Sophomores, whose chief
thoughts were about the class fight. They had, indeed, good
cause for fear, for no sooner were the Freshmen outside of
chapel than they began to prepare for the reception of their
The class tight begang the result was at once evident.
In a very short time every Sophomore was struggling on the
, , ,,,., V , ,, , ,, , , . V
ground, and at the end of fifteen minutes, each one was lying
contentedly on his back, held down by a Freshman, while
several 1911 men stood idly around watching the sport. The
"Sophs" were completely subdued. They did not again dare
to make an open assault upon the Freshmen, but sought re-
venge by imposing upon two or three at a time. The Fresh-
men were little disturbed by these maneuvers, since they
had proved that, with a fair chance, they were much su-
perior to these arrogant second year men.
Having thus shown their physical ability, the object of
the Freshmen, now, was to prove to the faculty and upper
classmen that they had brains as well as muscle. This they
did to everyone's satisfaction. It required only a few weeks
to thoroughly convince everybody connected with the college
that the class of 1911 had men capable of mastering the
work in every department.
Continued study, however, became somewhat monoto-
nous to the Freshmen, and they planned to have a little rec-
reation at the expense of the Sophomores. Late one evening,
three or four Freshmen journeyed down town, obtained a
can of white paint, and in a short time had literally painted
the town with their class numerals. This seemed to irritate
the Sophs very much, as their whole class turned out on the
following night and endeavored to blot out the numerals.
Their attempt, however, was only partially successful.
The next work of the class was the election of its offi-
cers. This election was held at a time when the fellows were
still strangers to one another and of course could not judge
the men for whom they voted. Time has proved, however,
that had the class waited until the end of the year they could
not have chosen better men for the positions. Frank D. Wil-
son was elected President to succeed P. Wainer, the Presi-
dent pro tem. J. G. Stewart was chosen Vice-President and
C. H. Coale, Secretary and Treasurer. The manner in which
these men have filled their positions reflects credit, not only
upon themselves, but also upon their class and their college.
As time passed, the annual interest in foot ball became
apparent around college. Soon after the opening of the sea-
son the Freshmen went out to meet their rivals, the "Sophs,"
on the gridiron. The prevalent opinion was that the Sopho-
mores, on account of their experience and superior weight,
would have no trouble in piling up a very large score. The
result was very different from what had been expected.
Throughout the game the Freshmen showed themselves su-
perior in everything except weight. This one quality, how-
ever, proved to be a great advantage to the "Sophs" and, at
the last moment, by continued line plunges, they succeeded
in scoring one touchdown. The game thus ended five to noth-
ing in favor of the Sophomores, but it was considered by all
a great victory for the Freshmen.
The Freshmen had thus far followed the precedent laid
down by previous classes. They had won the class fight,
painted their numerals, and lost their foot ball game by the
closest score of any Freshman class for several years. They
were now prepared to do a little bit more.
On Wednesday, December the eighteenth, the Fresh-
man-Sophomore basket ball game was played. The "Sophs"
had here hoped to obtain revenge for their poor showing in
foot ball, but they were sadly disappointed. Hagner, the
Freshman captain, had been giving his men a little secret
practice and had them in fine shape. Soon after the game
began the Freshmen secured a lead by eight points. This so
astonished the Sophomores that they forgot all that they had
ever known about basket ball. The Freshmen retained their
lead and won the game by a score of twenty to fourteen.
This score would have been greatly increased but for the
fact that several of the Freshmen subs were given a chance
in the last half.
This victory convinced the Sophomores that it was use-
less to struggle longer against their superiors, and the riv-
alry between the two classes ceased.
Interest in athletics was now replaced by thoughts of
the mid-year examinations. The Freshmen again settled
down to hard study and, consequently, with one or two ex-
ceptions, the entire class passed very satisfactory examina-
Immediately following the 'fexamsj' the greatest event
in the history of the class occurred. This was the banquet.
On Friday evening, February the seventh, at eight thirty,
the class entered the Garrick Theatre at Wilmington and
occupied the four front rows of seats. The theatre was deco-
rated with 1911 pennants, while several of the performers
wore blue and gold costumes. After the play the members
of the class proceeded to the Clayton House where an elab-
orate eleven course dinner awaited them. They disposed of
as much of this. as was possible and then spent a few of the
morning hours in giving toasts to the college, the faculty and
the different classes. The many needs of the college were
also discussed ,and the class pledged its support in aiding to
supply them. A noticeable feature of the whole affair was
the lack of ungentlernanly conduct which usually prevails on
such occasions. The banquet also aroused a class spirit
which will exist long after the class of 1911 has left "Old
Another noteworthy fact concerning the class is that it
has been represented in all of Delaware's inter-collegiate
contests. Bratton, Stewart and Edwards occupied positions
on the 'Varsity Foot Ball Team. Hagner was one of the five
men awarded D's for basket ball. Wilson, Winner and Kidd
are members of the track team. Knowles and Ennis were
in the debate with Rutgers. The base ball team has not
yet been chosen, but the outlook is very promising for the
Freshmen. McDaniel, Marshall, Dunn and Edwards have
shown up well in practice and have a good chance for their
The class of 1911 has, thus, had a most successful his-
tory, and one of which every Freshman has good reason to
Its present standing is very commendable. It is enjoy-
ing a popularity greater than that accorded to any Fresh-
man class for many years. Nearly one-half of its members
are already connected with the different fraternities. The
class is also doing good work in the Y. M. C. A., and it has
several regular contributors to the college paper. In other
words, the men of the Freshman class are showing by their
actions that they place the welfare of their class and college
above their own private interests. '
The future of this exceptional class we dare not predict.
Whether or not it will continue its successful career, time
only can tell. Of these facts, however, we are perfectly sure,
that during the next three years it will be ever willing and
anxious to fight the battles of the college and when it shall
be compelled to sever its personal relations with dear "Old
Delaware," it will fight the true battles of life in a manner
which will bring honor to its own name and to that of its

The Season of l907
I HE College Football Team of this scholastic year was
the most unsuccessful that has represented the school
during the past ten years. This fact appears the more
striking when we contrast it with the good work of last
year's team. The team of '06 went through the entire sea- J
son with but one defeat, and that was in the
last game, and furthermore, up until that
time their goal line had not been crossed. Of Q
that team we lost just eight out of the eleven
regular players,-namely, Wyatt, left end, , J,-
Lawson, left tackle, Stine, left guard, Mes-
sick, right guard, Voss, right tackle, Cann,
right end, Wright, quarter back, and Taylor, ,-.,- tp
half back. We had Papperman, center, Bald-
win, half back, and Kelly, full back, as a p
nucleus around which to build this year's
team. The men who made the 'Varsity for
the first time this year were: Rothrock, end, f
who scarcely weighed enough to keep him-
self firmly on the ground, Adkins, sub-tackle '
on last year's team, Bratton, whose bulk '
alone justified his holding a job, Edwards, a h
Freshman, who had played four years on
Wilmington High, Robin, sub, from last year, and Bratton, 1
'11, who knew enough to hold his job no matter where he
The one respect in which we were strong was in the
matter of coaches. I may safely say that no other college in
the country of the same size as Delaware was so Well
equipped with expert assistance. Our head coach, E. Pratt
King, is a good football player and did great work consider-
ing the material he had to work with. Mr. King played four
years at Mercersburg, one year at Chicago, three years at
Purdue, and one season at Massilon, Ohio, as a professional.
Lucien Green represented the Alumni in the coaching corps,
and Lieut, Stayer represented the Faculty.
The schedule as arranged by Manager Newman
was the heaviest we have had in years, but its
strenuousness was materially decreased by the
fact that several teams cancelled, and that fre-
quently so late that we could not substitute an-
other team. . A
The first call for players was well answered,
and for the first few evenings of practice we had
from thirty-five to forty-five men in uniform, but
f this enthusiasm did not survive the hard work
5' which Coach King mapped out for the candidates,
and as the days went by the squad gradually de-
creased in size until it was with difiiculty that a
scrub team could be made up to oppose the Var-
sity. Several times both Coaches, King and

Green, went before the student body and gave
them short talks, hoping to get out the best ma-
log' terial in college, but their efforts seemed to result
merely in getting out enough men for a few days,
at the end of which time the same thing had to be repeated.
The Williamson game was our first and it showed how hope-
lessly weak we were. We lost on a fluke, but most of the
students formed their estimate of the team from this game
and held it throughout the -season. Williamson was the
lightest team on our schedule and we should have beaten
them despite the fact that they outweighed us. This game
caused the blowing up of several of our high school "phe-
noms" and took the heart out of both the players and the
Our next game, at Haverford, brought about a com-
plete reversal in our form, it was the second best exhibi-
tion the team made during the season. Haverford was as
strong as Rutgers or Western Maryland. The
fact that our boys played great ball in this contest
is witnessed by the number of crippled men they
brought back. Several new men were tried out in
O . S, M T'
this game, and two, Stewart and Lyndall, made
very creditable showings. Stewart had three ribs
fractured, and this injury laid him up for the re-
mainder of the season, and Lyndall had a little
trouble with the powers that be, and he came out
After this game our hopes, which had been
deadened by the Williamson contest, again took a
boost and started to soar. As is usually the case
the higher you fly the harder the drop. This
proved to be the case in this particular instance.

Western Maryland was out next opponent, and
the way those fellows treated us was shameful, to
say the least. The boys started out well and for a
short time it looked as if it would be an interest-
ing contest, but as soon as Delaware lost the ball the team
seemed togo up. Western Maryland trotted through the
line and around the ends and outplayed Delaware during the
remainder of the contest. The team did not recover from
the effects of this defeat until the last game, and during the
week previous to the Rutgers game they practiced in a me-
, ,.,, . ,,,,. ,.
chanical way despite the efforts of the coaches. The Rut-
gers game was a repetition of that at Western Maryland,
only we were defeated by a larger score. Rutgers was out
for vengeance, as we had beaten them on their own grounds
the previous season. If revenge is sweet, the boys from
New Brunswick certainly took away their share of it. Dela-
ware received the ball on the kick-off and started down the
field in their old-time style. They carried the ball to with-
in Rutgers' five-yard line. Here Rutgers held and took the
ball. Their first play was a forward pass and it worked
well. In two more line-ups they carried the ball across the
line, and after that it was only a question as to how large
the score would be.
Our next game was with F. Sz M., and this time we
made a somewhat better showing. Several new men were
tried out by Coach King and two of these showed up finely.
They were Stewart and Lyndall, but misfortune again
camped on our trail, for Stewart had three ribs fractured
and was put out for the remainder of the season, and Lyn-
dall withdrew from the squad the following week. The fol-
lowing Saturday we played Johns Hopkins at Baltimore and
made the best showing of the season. The score was 0 to 0,
but that does not show how near Delaware came to win-
ning, as we lost the ball three separate times inside our op-
ponents' five-yard line.
On Thanksgiving Day we were to have played Wash-
ington College on our field, but they, like Stevens, cancelled
at such a late date that we could not secure another team.
As a whole the football season was a failureg butithe out-
look for next season is of the brightest character and we can
therefore hope to retrieve our lost reputation.

Yesterday the boys from Delaware State journeyed to
Haverford to try conclusions with the team representing
Haverford College. The football squad under Coach King
and accompanied by quite a number of rooters from among
the student body occupied a special car on No. 34. The game
was marked by the great frequency with which the forward
pass and onside kick were attempted, and it served to em-
phasize the necessity of thorough drill along these lines.
Haverford outweighed Delaware Hfteen pounds per man as
they came upon the field, but owing to Delaware's speed this
added weight did not give the Quakers as much advantage
as might be expected. Delaware won the toss and Captain
Baldwin elected to defend the south goal with the wind at
his back. Haverford had the kick-off. Edwards, for Haver-
ford, booted the ball out of bounds at Delaware's 15 yard
line on the first attempt and he received a second trial. This
time he kicked to Kelley, who was downed on his own 20 yard
line, having advanced the ball from the goal line. On the
first scrimmage Delaware lost possession of the ball through
a fumble by Berry. Haverford tried Bard around right end
for a long run but Robin downed him for a loss of two yards.
Bard was again called upon and he carried the ball around
Edwards for a gain of ive yards. Haverford then tried a
goal from placement which was blocked by Papperman,
Rothrock falling on the pigskin. At this stage of the game
Delaware took a decided spurt and it seemed for a moment
as if they couldnot be stopped. Kelley gained twelve yards
on two tries through center. Lyndall circled left end for a
fifteen yard gain. Doane gained eight yards on two trials
through the left side of the line. Captain Baldwin was
thrown for a loss of five yards on the next play, but Kelley
by a twelve yard plunge through the opposing line regained
it. A forward pass was then pulled off by Robin, Kelley re-
covering the ball on Haverford's forty yard line. Lyndall
and Kelleymadethe distance in two plays and an on-side kick
was attempted. The pass was poor and Baldwin attempted
to run it out and was thrown for a loss of eight yards. From
here until the end of the game Delaware's work was entire-
ly defensive. Haverford scored two touchdowns, both of
which came in the second half, one after Baldwin's try at a
field goal had been blocked, and another on a fumbled kick.
The Blue and Gold team put up one of their strongest games
but seemed to be laboring under an attack of stage fright or
some similar disease, because their attack lacked that vigor
and dash requisite for successful team work. Line-up :

'Johns Hopkins, 0g Delaware, 0.
One of the most closely contested games of football seen
in this vicinity for several seasons was pulled OE at Oriole
Park yesterday afternoon when Johns Hopkins and Dela-
ware State played for fifty minutes without crossing each
other's goal line. These two teams have met annually for
the last twenty years and at present they are tied in the
number of games won. Seven out of the twenty contests
have been tied, so this shows how closely matched the teams
have been. Last year Delaware won by a score of 5 to 0,
but Hopkins expected an easy victory over the light team
sent down to represent the Gold and Blue this season. The
field was in poor condition, as the 'rains of the last few days
had made it soggy and very slippery. This fact favored
Hopkins, as they had a slightly heavier team.
The game was called at 3 o'clock, and Captain Baldwin
took the kick-off. Ward kicked to Bradbury on Hopkins'
three yard line and the big full back carried the ball fifteen
yards before he was downed by Rothrock. Hallman then
made the distance in two tries around right end. Thompson
tried a forward pass but Josephs secured the ball. Dela-
ware tried on the second scrimmage the old style on-side kick
but lost the ball. This time Hopkins started up the field in
earnest and by a series of end runs, line bucks and short,
quick forward passes carried the ball to Delaware's twenty
yard line. Here they were held and Jones dropped back for
a try at a field goal. He failed and Ward punted from Dela-
ware's twenty-ive yard line. Bradbury received the kick
and carried the ball to the middle of the field before being
downed by Baldwin. Bradbury tried a line plunge but was
down for a loss by Papperman, who broke through the line
and caught him before his interference had formed. Hop-
kins kicked on the next down and Baldwin by fine dodging
and running carried the pigskin to the center of the Held.
Here Delaware tried their first forward pass, Robin to
Kelly, and they made thirty yards. By straight football the
Blue and Gold carried the' ball to Hopkins' five yard line.
Here Josephs fumbled and Hartley fell on the ball for Hop-
kins. The home boys kicked on the first scrimmage but
Kelley blocked. Rothrock missed a flying dive for the ball
behind the Red and Black's goal line and Ziegler recovered
it for Hopkins. Bradbury then punted from the twenty-five
yard line to Kelley, who was downed on his own fifty yard
line. After several scrimmages time was called. The first
half was over and neither team had scored.
Second half. Bradbury kicked to Josephs who was
downed by Hartley without a gain. Kelley was given the
ball on a delayed pass and ran through the whole Hopkins
team for a sixty yard gain, but the ball was brought back to
the middle of the field, as he had stepped outside the bound-
ary in dodging Thompson. Here Josephs fumbled on the
second down and Zeigler fell on the ball. Hopkins made the
distance twice in succession and carried the ball to Dela-
ware's thirty-five yard line when the Blue and Gold held
them for downs. Delaware then started down the Held and
by steady playing, using the old style and a few forward
passes, carried the ball to Hopkins' one yard line. Here
Baldwin was thrown for a loss and on the next play Josephs
passed badly and Hopkins secured the ball. Bradbury im-
mediately punted out of danger and after this the ball moved
back and forward near the center of the field, both teams
being unable to gain consistently. Line-up:

Review of the Season
f' T was with real honest pride that the students watched
fu the progress of the baseball team. Before the season
started we heard great talk of what would happen as
soon as the sun should come out warm and the field should
dry. We heard promises of great success on the Southern
trip-and we waited. The sun did not come out
and the field would not dry oi, and it was but a
week before Easter holidays that our team could
get any practice whatsoever. The talk of re-
peated victories on the Southern trip became
fainter and fainter, and doubts and fears instead
were circulating from mouth to mouth. Then the
boys went South. They played well and our hopes
went up. They came home and great was the
praise of them and the appreciation of their
work. Through the athletic column of the daily
papers we had followed the teams of Cornell, La-
fayette and other colleges down South. we noticed
that North Carolina A. Sz M. was the winning
college in the South. They defeated Cornell, they

defeated Lafayette, and we defeated them. Uni-
, ' versity of North Carolina defeated Cornell, and
we defeated University of North Carolina. Have
we not a right to feel proud? On our return home our first
game was with Rock Hill College whom we defeated by a
score of 4 to 1. On the following Friday CApril 195 we left
to play two gamesg one with Western Maryland, and one
with Mount St. Mary's, both of which we won with ease.
Next we lost to Maryland Agriculturalflollege, followed by a
fifteen inning tie game with Albright. Several of our men
were injured in the last two games and We were defeated by
Lebanon Valley by a score of 10 to 7.
The remainder of the season proved to us that our team
Was of the right sort. We defeated Maryland Agricultural
College 7 to O, and lost to Villa Nova, the strongest college
team in the country, by a score of 5 to 6.
The remainder of the season proved to us
that our team was of the right sort. We de-
feated Maryland Agricultural College 7 to 0,
and lost to Villa Nova, the strongest college
team in the country, by a score of 5 to 6.
The outlook for the season of 1908 is excep-
tionally bright and We hope that it will be an
improvement even on last year's season. The
candidates are showing up finely under Coach
Vic Willis of the Pitttsburg Nationals and We
expect to be extraordinarily strong in the pitch-
ing department this season. The team is prac-
tically the same as last year, Cullen, the first
baseman, being the only ma nvvho did not re-
turn to college. A
Before' this publication Went to press We had
defeated the Wilmington team of the Tri-State
League by a score of 6 to 5, which speaks Well
indeed, for the Tri-State is one of the fastest minor leagues 1
in the country. Our team outplayed the Wilmington club at
nearly every stage of the game, runs being "put across the
slate" With a regularity that caused the Tri-State aggrega-
tion to "sit up and takenoticef'

Review of the Season
ONSIDERING the entire season from an impartial
viewpoint one must admit that we have had a success-
ful season. Although there was no lack of candidates
for the team, there was to a certain extent a scarcity of good
After the first six or seven men were selected the
remainder were fair but not up to the standard.
The schedule, though not long, was the hardest in
the history of the college and the manner in which
the team performed will confirm the iirst state-
ment in this review. The first game with Mary-
land showed us that our team was fast, but lacked
endurance, although the Maryland team was
away below par and was not fit to test thoroughly
the capabilities of our team. The Swarthmore
game was where the lack of endurance again
came into evidence, but nevertheless the Quakers
realized that they had a tough proposition and
played their very best. The game at Rutgers,
which was played on Friday evening of the week
of the mid-year's, was our first real triumph. The
team was fatigued mentally and physically when
, ' fi-'1 A

it arrived at New Brunswick g but remembering
how Rutgers had "put it on us" in foot ball, they
proceeded to play as if they meant business, and
in a few minutes had defeated the New Jersey collegians.
The game with Millersville proved an easy victoryg but at
Swarthmore the team lost their nerve in the second half and
allowed themselves to be run away with. Pennsylvania
State came along with the toughest proposition of the year
and though we lost we feel that we died hard, for they had a
team that would be hard to beat. Rutgers on our floor
proved a pudding and Delaware scored almost at will.
When the team left for a short trip into Pennsylvania Cap-
tain Newman was left behind and Hagner was suffering
from 'a dislocated thumb. The first game with Millersville
was a defeat for us. This was followed by another from
Pennsylvania State which was of the worst kind. The best
showing made by the team on the trip was against Buck-
nell's strong team, but alas, those giants defeated us. The
work of all the men was excellent, that of Captain Newman
and Hagner the Freshman being especially good, as they
never lacked the staying qualities. However, considering
that we had neither trainer nor coach we succeeded as well
as any one could hope for.
Penn State, 26: Delaware, I9.
CF1'om the "Rcview."J
On February 13th we lost to Penn State in one of the
most bitterly contested games ever seen on the local floor.
Penn State is usually considered 'on a par with the "Big
Five," and the way our boys showed up against them was
certainly a welcome sight. The game opened up in a lively
manner and in a few minutes State had netted three goals.
Right here they stopped for a time, and Delaware started
in. Our team-work at this stage of the game was of the
finest order and in a few minutes we had piled up ten points.
During the remainder of the half it was nip and tuck, with
the score at the end of the half 13-12, in favor of Delaware.
State entered the second half with two new men in their
line-up, and the freshness of the latter, coupled with the
better physical condition of the State boys, gave them the
victory. They knew, however, that they were playing bas-
ket-ball at all stages of the contest, and had we been as
fortunate in having able substitutes to replace our tired
players, results, perchance, might have been different.

Delaware, 63g Rutgers, 27.
On the evening of February 15, just two days after the
gruelling contest with Penn State, we took a fall out of Rut-
gers. The boys from New Brunswick came down here with
their best and despite the fact that we had defeated them in
their own back yard earlier in the season, we were coniident
that they would give us a dose of our own medicine. The
contest, however, was too one-sided to be interesting and al-
though both teams played fast, their .efforts were marred by
too much fouling. Delaware seemed dead for the first few
minutes of play, and Rutgers piled up seven points before
we started. When we did get going it did not take us long
to catch up and we were soon in the lead with a safe margin.
The first half was a nice contest, with Delaware just a little
bit to the good, both in shooting and floor work, and when
the whistle blew the score stood, Delaware, 28 5 Rutgers, 16.
In the second half Delaware plainly showed her superiority
over the boys from New Brunswick, and literally ran away
from them. The Rutgers team, towards the close of the
half, went completely up in the air and never came down un-
til after the whistle blew. The final score would no doubt
have been larger but Captain Newman sent in several of the
subs in order not to overwork the regulars, as they had had
a hard week of it. Line-up:

83 24 K LTHOUGH the Relay Team of 1907 was un-
' ' ' ' fortunate inthe Pennsylvania meet, due
Z b chiefly to bad training rather than to the
inability of the runners, we cannot help
but regard the season of 1907 as amarked
success. Because of the small interest
-taken in track work it is hard to tell what
possibilities lie undeveloped in many of our students. We
are generally forced to review our season, if we may call it
such, from a standpoint of relay team work rather from
that of track work in its broader sense. In 1907, however,
we were glad to find a new interest in the track work, which
found expression in the Inter-class Meet, June 22d. Be-
cause of unfortunate and unavoidable circumstances there
was no such meet in 1906. Therefore the interest in 1907
was greatly increased over that of previous years.
The track men of the four classes got down to hard
training and steady work. The result was that no less than
six college records were broken. On the day of the meet com-
ing during' commencement week, a large crowd was gath-
ered to see the sports, and from the way that records were
. Q '.
tumbled about we believe that the spectators could not have
Aside from the good work done at the meet, possibly the
greatest result of it was the enthusiasm which was awak-
ened among the students. While as yet we have not at-
tempted dual track work with other colleges, yet we believe
that this will soon come and only a year or two will elapse,
we hope, before "track" will begin to gain the interest of the
students as strongly as have base-ball, foot ball and basket
Even now we can note a change in the general feeling
and indications point toward a very successful season in
1908. Delaware will, of course, enter a team in the Penn-
sylvania meet, and June 16th is the date set for our inter-

able avoirdupois struck him and Mac sprawled all over the
ice. The lady had just passed over Mac when she saw some
other skaters coming near her. And so she yelled, "Look

looking up, said, "For heaven's sake, are you coming back

l909 Graveyard I909
It was midnight, dark and dreary, and I, tired, Weak and Weary,
Waved the mystic shade of Morpheus from the black Plutonian shore,
Long ago this search I'd started for the graves of f'Our Departedfi
But alas, my course apart led from my classmates gone before,
Gone perhaps for ever more.
Soon I passed the broad-arched gateway, and through studious path
Many epitaphg there scanning cut on monument and shrine 3
Verse and metre unpoetic, some were tender and pathetic-,
Others cold, unsynipathetic, making chills skate olcr my spine,
And my eyes to fill with brine.
Great was my astonishment, seeing on a monument
The statue of an athlete which I knew was McGarvey.
And these words were there for reading: '
Ed McGarVey, Poor Ed,
When iirst you reached the place,
You were a perfect saint, Ed,
You naught had done of late.
Of poker soon you learned, Ed,
Of Schlitz, and Blue Ribbon, too
And when a start you got, Ed,
There was no hope for you.
For "Eddie," great tears sobbing, while my heart was beating, throbbing,
Then I read on another slab:
l-lere lies i'Hap" XYard, '
'iLanky" or "Legs" as you like:
For the wicked world
Having no love
I-Ie just went up to one above.
"Hap," too, has he gone under? Ah! so decreased our number,
But upon the gravestone yonder is the name of iiBl'lgllZlll1,, Young.
And I read, stepping up nearer:
Alas! nB1'ig'llHlDu Young lies here,
His demise came just last year.
Much too small was our college
For that head so full of knowledge.
Next I notice 'neath an oak tree an old urn which used to be over in me
c-hanical cellar, now it bO1'G this epitaph:
This urn contains that chronic grin
And sallow smile of 'fMarc,' Robin.
' No conin found to hold his feet,
His corpse lies here wound in a sheet.
Just within a shady bower, beautiful with fern and flower,
We had stepped, and there four tombstoncs bore these names oft seen be
f'Ji1nmie" Adkins, "XVillie" XVingett, Jones and J. R. Rothrock.
Poor HJIIIIIDICH Adkins' eyes got sore,
Detective he could be no more.
The other shadows over there
Wiill wash his face and comb his hair. .
Consignecl to this casket of cedar
Reclines the corpse of "W'illie" Wfingctt, the loafer.
His delight was the fair dame,
Pigskin sphere and poker game.
Short will be his stay below,
Being too tough for Mephisto.
In this grave both deep and Wide
'Treudyi' and Jones lie side by side.
IVith E. E. they had a scuffle,
And were both lost in the shuffle.
W7ith sorrow and anguish we learned,
J, R. Rothrock his toes had upturned.
Old Nick with a sigh
Took him out to get dry,
And declared him too fresh to be burned.
Wfatts was a pleasant lad, his demise indeed was sad.
C. E. VVatts lost his tongue,
And in classes was unstrung,
He loved Latin less than maiden,
The furnace is still his Ad-ien.
But of "Liz" Gibbs thisstone says something.
Isaac Gibbs, our modest dude,
VVith jovial smile and. merry mood.
His life has closed
In calm repose,
College to him was servitude.
MacSorley, "Gus" Papperman and "Dutch"
the briers on three tombstones in a row:
"Mac" MacSorley, a book hate1',
Electricity said "avaunt.',
He, to a large city, went to cater
In a cheap hash restaurant.
Gustav Adolph Papperman
Wfith all his weight a pony killer.
In his room he had a horse,
But never in exams of course.
Here lie the bones of "Charles Kep,
On his departure many wep.
Math was his Jonah, but a rep
Regard for thee hath never slepg
Peace to thy ashes, dear old "Kep.',
Kicking two more slabs from a nook, I thenpread
Howard Prouse was our preacher,
XVith 'fDoc" Rowan for his teacher.
Wlien temptations are so nigh us,
XfVhat a blessing that the pious
Keppel next I notice behind
this of Prouse and Brook
"Brook" Jackson became quite a sport,
Got into devilment of every sort.
When the McC girls he went to court,
He was sent home notice short.
'Neath a mighty willow tree, Parrisli and Josephs I did seeg
One is engaged in picking stones, and the other sawing bones.
Parrish, Parrish, when you left
Of a. mighty scrapper we were bereft.
To a warmer climate you have gone
The Satanic robe to don.
XValter XYilloughby Josephs.
You were a fake.
XVhen classes came you had headachcg
NVQ: fear we'll quake
That you will bake
XVhen Nick his claim
Comes round to take.
Then around me I did gaze, when these tombstones recalled those gone by
Robert Carswell in forty one dicdg
Alas! for Military he did love.
In "math" he bluiled, and to Robbie sighedg
The graphic method isn't used above.
lVilliam Leslie Cramer is planted here,
He grew lazier year by year.
'Whither he did go we know not whereg
He is either in heaven or else down there.
Here lieth Richard Palmer, the ladies' man,
He died after he was tin canned.
But "Dick'7 was a jolly fellow, '
And never possessed a streak of yellow.
Henry Vandyke was a. lazy cuss
And was always ready for a fuss.
Wlhen the ladies he called to see,
He always spoke well of D. C.
Behold f'Ton1,' Tinney who was so fair,
Tall and skinny, with auburn hair.
Of cigarettes he was an expert maker
Until he was ready for the undertaker.
I must not forget to mention the last that attracted my zitteutiou
Melntire was of the inanliest beauty,
His heart was kind and softg
Faithful below he did his duty,
But now he has gone aloft.
As I these epitzmphs ended,
I was at once offeiided,
For EL yell from all the class was blended
Caused by Satan, who the fire attended.
Upon close inspection
I found a unanimous objection,
For Satan had just put in another load of coal.

' ' ' 1 HAT are those grass-colored objects moving
" across the campus?" "Oh, those are Fresh-
"Why do they stay in the paths ?" "They are
f 1 afraid of being cut down by the lawn-mower.
"What do they come here for? This is cer-
tainly not a foundling asylum." "Because their
parents desire that men should be made of
them. There is no other college like Delaware
1 to do this."
Such was the drift of conversation in the beginning of
the fall term. We immediately took charge of the "infants"
and since then have carefully trained them, so that in a few
years the desire of their parents may be realized. Believing
hrrnly that godliness comes first and then cleanliness, We led
them to the chapel in the morning, and then bathed them
throughout the day. "Early to bed" Was also a rule Which it
seemed necessary to adopt. Therefore, promptly at 8 P. M.
these "little ones" were put in their cradles. But the "kids"
are improving, and if the supply of milk and castoria does
not run out We may expect something of them yet. In our
efforts as child nurses We have been greatly handicapped by
the want of a nursery. In the near future We trust that
"Doc" Will build one near the dormitories.
Remarks Heard Hbout the Book and Board
"Bet it won't be it to look at."
Wingett ain't working."
"Adkins seems to be asleep at the switch."
Harp McGarvey seems to be the busiest man on the

far that it will take them their entire Senior year to get out."
