1 e Blue Hen r-, -tl . n e Blue Hen published by the Class of 1918, of Delaware College at Newark, Delaware Nineteen Seventeen , TO MR. H. RODNEY SHARP IN APPRECIATION OF HIS PROPHETIC WISDOM AND GENEROUS ENTHUSIASM IN LOYALTY TO DELAWARE WE DEDICATE THIS BOOK ?u - ff p FOREWORD HAT we, the class of 1918, should have the good fortune of editing the Blue Hen at this particular stage in the development of Delaware College, we esteem an exclusive privilege. For in our short college career we have known " Old Delaware " in her days of struggle and are, on that account, better able to appreciate her days of more happy fortune which now seem assured. We spent two years within her walls when Delaware College was wealthy in love and loyalty far out of pro- portion to her wealth of equipment and material means. For one year we have known her in the day of transition, when the old was not usable as old nor the new as new. And we now look forward to one year when we may see her fairly launched on her career of greatest usefulness. We count ourselves happy that to us should be given the task of present- ing through the college annual the remarkable changes and growth of these few years. In editing this book we wish to acknowledge the hearty co-operation of all those on whom we have called for aid of any kind. Especially do we wish to thank Mr. Charles G. Meier, who did the two color plates, Mr. Blair for the headings, Mr. Otto Thomas for cartoons. Miss Gertrude Brady and Professors Sypherd and Dutton for criticism, and The Craftsmen at Kells for their interest as well as technical skill. Greetings In the evening of your lifetime when your youth has passed away, Seated by old age ' s fireside as the fit fid shadows play, As you gaze with eyes unseeing, deep into the dying fire, While the soft light and the silence memories in your heart inspire; May this book a fairy bridge he, over which your dreams may glide To that happy land of boyhood gleaming on the other side, Where your tireless thoughts may wander ' mid the sorrows and the joys Of those carefree boyhood friendships which not even time destroys. May your youth once more be with you; may your fancy see you there In the school of old traditions — ancient, mighty Delaware. —L. R. Witsil, ' 18.

When fifteen years of age he entered Delaware College, and won his B. A. degree in 1896. The following two years he was a post-graduate student here, taking Latin, French, German and Spanish. He studied at Columbia from 1898 to 1900, taking work in Romance and Germanic languages. The first of these years he won a scholarship and the second became University Fellow in Romance Philology. He was given the M. A. degree by Delaware College in 1899. Prof. Smith went abroad the next year and continued his research in Romance Lit- eratures at L ' Universite de Paris, Le College de France, and L ' Ecole des Hautes Etudes, at Paris. Returning to America, he taught modern languages at the Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute, and was a student of old Provencal, at Colum- bia. In 1902 he was chosen instructor in German, French and Spanish at his Alma Mater, later being advanced to Professor. He became Dean of the Col- lege and the Arts and Science Department last year, and in 1916 was elected secretary to the faculty. Deail Smith is a member of the Kappa Alpha Fraternity, the Modern Language Association of America, and the Phi Kappa Phi. Fraternity. By his activity in student affairs and by his genial influence as Dean of the College, Prof. Smith has made every man at Delaware his warm friend. A man of most attractive personality, and a thorough scholar, he is the model type of a gentleman. HARRY HAYWARD Dean Hayward was born near Lewistown, N. Y., in 1869. After preparing at the Mount Hermon School, in Massachusetts, he entered the College of Ag- riculture at Cornell in 1890. After graduating he was a land agent in northern Delaware, and later went to State College, Pa., where he acted as head of the Department of Dairying. He then accepted a position as Professor of Dairying and Animal Husbandry at New Hampshire College. From there he went to the Department of Agriculture at Washington, and was chief of the Dairy Division. He was engaged in organizing and managing the agricul- tural work at the Mount Hermon School for three years, and came to Delaware in 1906 as Director of the Experiment Station, and professor of Agriculture. He has done special work at Harvard, the University of Minnesota, and some of the agricultural institutions of England and Germany. He is a member of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity and the honorary Fraternities of Sigma and Phi Kappa Phi. Dean Hayward is a man of great energy and constructive ability, a leader in every sense of the word. His social spirit and the splendid character of his work at Delaware are appreciated by all. ALLAN REGINALD CULLIMORE Prof. Cullimore was born at Jacksonville, 111., in March, 1884. He attended the Belmont School, Belmont, Cal.. and took his scientific training at the Mass- achusetts Institute of Technology, graduating in 1907 with the B. S. degree. The next year he was Assistant in Civil E ngineering there. Afterward he did practical work with the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey on the Columbia River, Washington; was engaged by the American Bridge Co., at their New York office; was appointed Assistant Superintendent of Construction for the city of St. Louis, serving for two years ; and he was designing Engineer for the Spuck Iron Foundry Co. of St. Louis. He has been Dean of the College of Industrial Science at Toledo University, in Ohio, and for the past three summers taught railroad and topographical fieldwork at the summer Engineering Camps of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in eastern Maine. He was elected Dean of Engineering at Delaware this year. Prof. Cullimore is a member of the Beta Theta Phi Fraternity, the Ohio Society of Steam, Mechanical and Electrical Engineers, and the Society for the Promotion of Engineering Education. He has brought to the engineers here a genuine interest in their work, and a spirit of animation which grows as time passes. With his wide experience and well deserved popularity among the students, he is forming a technical school of the first order at Delaware College. Since the Last Blue Hen Being a Chronology of Happenings at Delaware College Since the Publication of the Last Blue Hen in Nineteen Hundred and t t j» j» Fifteen jt jt j» j» j» Gifts to the College O N November 30, 1915, at a meeting of the board of trustees, Mr. Rodney Sharp announced a gift to Dela- ware College of five hundred thousand dollars. The donor preferred that his name should not be mentioned. This meeting of the board on Tuesday, November 30th, 1915, is the most notable that has occurred in the history of the college since its found- ing. This gift was the first of many which were to fol- low. And subsequent gifts from the same source have brought the total amount to more than a million dollars. That was a great moment, when by a brief announce- ment, in an instant was made possible the realization of the dreams and ideals of those who for years have worked patiently on in behalf of Delaware College. From that instant the college was on a new plane of existence. Her possibilities for usefulness were placed on an almost limitless scale. Material Growth For the first term of this year one might easily have mistaken the campus of Delaware College for a European battlefield. The new campus was plowed and the top soil piled in four rows, each one a quarter of a mile long. The students had almost literally taken to tents. And those buildings which still ' The Digger " stood, strikingly resembled the ruins of Lou- vain. Nine houses including the old Colmery Home were completely demolished; such historic places as " soap fat alley " with all its traditions, were obliterated. Three new buildings were creeping out of the ground, old residences were taken for recitation rooms and laboratories, and Old College Hall was but a ghost of its former self. But at last the new campus is taking shape. We see the level plane more than half a mile long and three hundred feet wide, which is to be the " Green. " The line of new buildings which are to surround the green is clearly suggested by the new dormitory and Wolf Hall. And the " Old Dorms " stands forth in new array as though it had been thoroughly sprinkled with waters from the fountain of youth. The Old College Hall is being fitted up as a student center and will take the place of Purnell House. It will contain two dining rooms, one to seat two hundred and fifty and the other to seat one hundred. This building will contain offices and other centers for interest of student life. The new dormitory is situated just south of Main Street where the Old Colmery Home once stood. It will house sixty-five men and is constructed ac- cording to the most modern plans. Few of us have ever before had the pleasure of seeing under construction a building so substantial and well designed, both for comfort and convenience, as Wolf Hall. It may eventually be used solely for Agricultural purposes; for the present it is amply large to furnish supplementary quarters for the departments of Biology, Bacteriology, and Chemistry. Wolf Hall and the dormitory are in the Colonial style of arch- itecture, as will be the future buildings. Thus they will harmonize with the present buildings of the Women ' s Col- lege and when the scheme is completed there will be unity in the whole. Another improvement of this year is the addition of a new infirmary in charge of a trained nurse, where any cases of illness or accident may receive the best of care. The old Elliott Home of Revolutionary times has been remodeled and is now used as temporary quarters for the Board of Health and Bacteriology department.

To those who are working for the material development of Delaware College, it must be a pleasure to note the corresponding growth in the mind and spirit of the student body. In the last year and a half there have been many evidences of such growth, of which student self gov- ernment, while perhaps the most notable, is but one of many. For i nstance the Review, under Mr. E. William Martin, was made a weekly instead of a monthly, a power for good, rather than an institution for charity. The Man- dolin club was formed, also the Dramatic club, the Arts and Science club, and the Engineering Society. Interest has been revived in the two literary societies. The inter-society debate, which for want of candidates had been " hors de combat, " was resumed with enthusiasm. And two debates with St. John ' s College register the same awakening in the student body. The constitution for the student-government association was adopted by unanimous vote of the student body on Friday, February 25, 1916. The con- stitution is as follows: Newark, Delaware, February 25, 1916 We, the students of Delaware College, through our representatives whose names are appended hereto, do endorse and adopt the follow- ing constitution for an organization which we hereby enter into. After this constitution has been approved by the Faculty of Delaware College, it shall become binding and applicable to every member of the student body. CONSTITUTION Article 1 — Name The name of this organization, which shall be composed of the entire student body of the college, shall be " The Student Government Association of Delaware College. " Article 2 — OflBcers The officers of this association shall be a board of seven members, said board of officers to be known as " The Student Council. " These seven men are to be elected from the four classes of the College as follows: 1 Senior Class — three members, one of whom shall be the President of the Class; one of whom shall be the Editor-in- [24] Chief of the Review; the other one to be elected by the Senior Class. 2 Junior Class — two members, one of whom shall be the President of the Class; the other one to be elected by the Junior Class. student Council 3 Sophomore Class — one member, the President of the Class. 4 Freshman Class — one member, the President of the Class. One of the three members from the Senior Class shall be elected by a majority vote of the association as President of " The Student Council. " r25] Article 3 — Duties of Officers It shall be the duty of the President of The Student Council to preside at all mass meetings of the Association, such as smokers, elections, etc. It shall be the duty of The Student Council to meet regularly once every two weeks at a time named by the President of the Council and at such other times as occasion demands. It shall be the duty of The Student Council to receive complaints against all students who deface College or Town property, who indulge in drunkenness or immorality, or who make improper use of the gym- nasium, the library, and the Y. M. C. A. Hall, or any other justifiable complaints. The Council shall investigate each complaint, summon the person complained of before The Student Council, hear his defense, if he has any to offer, and if he be found guilty, inflict such punish- ment as is reasonably proportional to the misdemeanor. Article 4 — Elections After the election of the first Student Council in 1916 there shall be held a regular election of the Council on the Friday preceding Com- mencement each year. Elections of managers and assistant managers of the various athletic teams of the College shall be made at a mass meeting of the Association, notice of such election being posted at least one week previous to the election date, by the President of The Student Council. Article 5 — Amendments Amendments to the constitution may be made by a two-thirds vote of the members present at any mass meeting of the Association, pro- vided a week ' s notice in advance of such meeting has been posted in conspicuous places about the campus.

[26] The Honor System On Monday, February 26, 1916, the faculty considered favorably a petition presented by many of the students which asked that those whose names were affixed by allowed to take their examinations upon their honor. This act was the first step in founding the honor system at the college. It was prompted in general by the development of responsibility and honesty among the students and immediately by the strong editorials of E. William Martin in the Review. On November 30, 1916, a motion was brought before the students to am- end the constitution of the student body by adopting the honor system for all quizzes and examinations, and making it compulsory to report violations in either case. Of the two hundred and one present at the meeting, one hundred and ninety-six voted. One hundred and fifty-one were in the affirmative. Forty- five were in the negative. Thus the amendment was carried by a seventy-seven percent majority and the honor system at Delaware College became a fact. The following is the original petition as presented to the faculty, with the signatures affixed. To the Faculty of Delaware College: The undersigned students, feeling that the time is ripe now for steps to be taken to in- stall an honor system at Delaware College, have agreed to petition the faculty of Delaware College to grant the following requests: 1 That with proper direction, the conduct of examinations (or tests) to which they are subject be entrusted to the undersigned students themselves. 2 That all men who will not, or believe that they cannot, assume the responsibilities of an honor system be segregated from the undersigned students during examinations, and be examined as the faculty may direct. 3 That a student government committee be established which will undertake to in- vestigate all charges of cheating or dishonesty in any form. 4 That the action of the faculty and of the undersigned be based upon the understand- ing that all students who sign this petition are willing to pledge themselves to report to the proper authority all breaches of honor or honesty in any examination. 5 That the faculty appoint a committee to meet with a committee of the undersigned students to arrange for the details of an honor system upon the lines above indicated.

Opening Purnell House On Thursday, April 6, 1916, was held the formal opening exercises of This, the old library building, had been remodeled and fitted out for use as a Y. M. C. A. by Mr. Rodney Sharp, as a personal gift to the College. During the exercises, speeches of acceptance were made by President Mitchell and Dean Smith for the Faculty, Chancellor Curtis for the Alumni, and Messrs. J. W. Jones, A. Crothers, and James C. Hastings on behalf of the student body. Mr. Sharp told how as the old Evans Home the former students had used this building as their own home. And he was glad, he said, to put it once more in condition to be used in the same way by the student body. The care and devotion which Mr. Sharp put into this gift is in- dicative of his attitude in general toward the College. A pleasing incident in connec- tion with the opening of Purnell House was the return of Mr. " Hazo " Barton to his duties with the Col- lege. Mr. Barton had a short while before felt it necessary to retire from regular work. But he returned, as he put it, " Spryer than a canary bird " to take care of Purnell House. ' Hazo " Bdrtii Forget Today and Live Once More -with Shakspere A Martian astronomer must needs have figured long ere he puzzled out the cause of the kaleidoscopic display of colors which took place in the vicinity of Delaware College on April 28th and 29th. Yet to us poor world- lings, though of inferior intelligence, it is known that those were the days on which Delaware joined with hundreds of other colleges and communities, in commem.oration of the tercentenary of the death of this vrorld ' s greatest dramatist, William Shakspere. The celebration consisted of a Pageant, depicting some scenes from the [31] life and times of the dramatist; the production of Twelfth Night; and a lecture by Professor H. M. Ayers on " Shakspere, Both of an Age and for All Time. " The Pageant Friday, April 28th, dawned inauspiciously. The day was dark and dreary, and poor were the prospects for a successful outdoor performance. To start off the day in a modern way, a baseball game was played in the morning, under a cloudy sky. With clouds hanging gloomily overhead and r ain seeming about to fall at any minute, what was the surprise and joy of everyone, when " Old Sol " burst forth in his most glorious rays. At the stroke of three, the pageant began its joyous journey from the Women ' s College. Led by Mr. H. R. Tyson on a snow-white charger, the pro- cession wended its way up to Frazer Field. Here all the stands had been erected in the south-east end and the spectators were rushing for seats. Need- less to say, many of the tremendous crowd which attended were compelled to stand. But who out of that vast multitude of five thousand cared about that? All they wished was to see some of the dances and hear the songs. Scribe E. C. Johnson of Ye Newarke Poste, first read the prologue to the Pageant. He asked the gathered assembly " to forget today and live once more with Shakspere. " And then the Pageant began. Part 1 — The Boy. First, the hobgoblin fairies entered, and sang and danced as only fairies do. They wove a magic ring whereby woe would come to mortals. Soon after this, a company of children entered the glade to play, and while dancing about they discovered the ring. The children accosted a troop of milk maids, who told them all about the ring and warned the children to beware of it. They all played Elizabethan games until little Will Shakspere entered. He defied the enchantment of the fairy ring and thereupon was bewitched. The children having been frightened away, the hobgoblins returned and gloated over their victim. However, upon the approach of Titania they ran away. Titania ' s fairies broke the enchantment with a wonderful dance. Will Shakspere was given many magic gifts by the fairy troop; Titania herself gave him the genius of poetry. Part II — The Young Man. A company of youths and maidens entered singing and dancing. Then Will Shakspere came in, having just returned from the hunt. The sheriffs appeared and arrested young Shakspere for poaching the royal deer. The Morris dancers entered and Maid Marian was crowned Queen of the May. Shakspere returned and scribbled a verse against Lord Lucy, which he stuck up in a tree. All the dancers now joined in a May Pole [32] Scenes from the Pageant dance, during which Lord Lucy, chancing upon the verse written by Shakspere, read it and then demanded that the boy be clapped into prison. However, the boy ' s father and Anne Hathaway saved the day by obtaining Will ' s release. Shakspere soon after departed for London. Part III — The Playwright. Here the action centered around the Eliz- abethan royal court. The Earl of Southampton entered and awaited the Queen who soon arrived with her followers. Sir Walter Raleigh performed a gallant deed by throwing his coat over a muddy spot and thus allowing the Queen to continue on her way. Southampton greeted the Queen and summoned Shaks- pere. A court dance now was performed before her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth of England. Shakspere entered and " As You Like It " was presented by his players. " The day being now late, the company here broke up, and the Queen, ac- companied by her court, with all the villagers and children thronging to attend her, rode off triumphantly in festival procession. " The principals of the Pageant: Will Shakspere, the boy — Justin Steel. Will Shakspere, the youth — Harold W. Horsey. Will Shakspere, the playwright — Dr. S. C. Mitchell. Titania, Queen of the fairies — Miss Mary Mitchell. Maid Marion, Queen of the May — Miss Mary Mason. Anne Hathaway — Miss Selma Bachrach. Shakspere ' s father — Mr. Harold Foster.

[34] The Play " Twelfth Night " As soon as the pageant was over preparations were begun post-haste to enact the play. At eight o ' clock everything was in readiness at the Newark Opera House and the audience, keyed up to a high pitch, awaited the rising of the curtain. Then softly the music played, and slowly the curtain rose. The story of the play was gradually unwoven. The acting was truly of the Shaksperean type. All in the caste worked as if they were really the characters they repre- sented. The audience on Friday night included a good many in Shaksperean costumes. The audience on Saturday after- noon, although somewhat smaller than on the previous evening, was very appreciative of the player ' s efforts. The three principal female parts were taken by three stu- dents of the Women ' s College. Miss Pauline Smith as Viola, was highly popular, as was shown by the applause always ac- corded her when she appeared on the stage. Her careless grace, and apparent diffidence appealed to everyone. Miss Thera Twitchell, as Maria, played a difficult role so easily that the audience did not fully appreciate her dramatic talent. She helped notably in Pauline Smith as ' ' Viola ' ' [35] the Sir Andrew — Sir Toby — Fabian plots. Miss Marian Campbell, as Olivia, leading lady of the play, divided the honors with Miss Smith. In her Eliz- abethan costume, Miss Campbell displayed all the charm and vivacity that should go with the character of Olivia, to which graces were added her erect carriage and unusual beauty. Among the male characters. Homer Savin did exceptionally well as Mal- [36] Persons of the Play volio. The superb confidence displayed by Savin won a large measure of his success. His part was a difficult one to portray correctly, yet according to Dr. Ayers, in his lecture given at this college, Savin interpreted the character better than many professionals. Mr. Irving Reynolds as Sir Toby Belch was a perfect fit. His medium stature and extremely rotund girth offered excellent contrast to the height and diminished waist line of Sir Andrew. And his deep voice and guttural laugh but added to the contrast. Yet Sir Toby held himself always in proper con- straint, never making of the stage a complete rough house. His every jest was greeted with a smile and his laugh with one of equal heartiness. Another man that helped greatly in making the play a success was Lee Weigle, who took the part of the Jester. If the space were not limited, every member of the caste would be given special mention. The Persons of the Play Orsino, Duke of Illyria — E. E. Plumley, ' 19. Curio } ., n ]- 41. r, 1 ( S. D.

Sailors ( Marvel Wilson, ' 18 [38] The Address On the Saturday following the play, Dr. Ayers of Columbia University, gave a wonderful address on " Shakspere: Both of an Age and for All Time. " In speaking of Shakspere in his own age. Dr. Ayers mentioned the follow- ing points: First, that Shakspere must have been well educated; second, that his plays cannot be attributed to Bacon or any other writer; and third, that the stage managers of his time did not permit their plays to be published and that it was only thru clandestine means that we now have any of his works. In speaking of Shakspere as read and acted today, the speaker emphasized the points that the great author ' s works appeal to this age thru their humor, pathos, and gift of language. The lecturer closed by congratulating the two colleges on the success of the festival as a whole. Commencement By far the most notable commencement yet held at the college was that of last June. The fourteenth of that month was the biggest day of all. Mr. E. William Martin began the day with the senior oration which dealt with the " Opportun- ities and Responsibilities of the Student. " After an in- troduction by Governor Miller, the Honorable John Bassett Moore took the platform. His address was on " Educational Crosscurrents. " Dr. Moore is a Delawarean himself and on that account his remarks were particularly ap- preciated. After the address the degrees were conferred by Dr. Harter. It is of unusual interest to note that among those who won diplomas were a father and son. Warren Newton received his B. S. and State Senator 0. A. Newton received his honorary Master ' s Degree in Agriculture. In the afternoon of June 14th, the corner-stone of Wolf Hall was laid. The meeting was presided over by Mr. Rodney Sharp. The ceremony was eon- ducted by the members of the Grand Lodge, A. F. and A. M. of Delaware. The eclat of last commencement is to be surpassed only by prospects of those of the present session. h Q Hh H J ' t m ( ■ " • " fc B S Sr rtl I JHHB w i [39] NC .NOT LOUVAIN - ONLY THE DORMS »ir ' " ,1 White Clay Creek Just back of the College where good friends stroll in Spring and skate in Winter 19 7 SEMIORS :i ' - i9rr LeRoy Bayard Steele President — LeRoy Bayard Steele Vice-President — James McConnell Heinel Secretary — Chester Smith Treasurer — Robert Houston Pepper [41] i ' Senior Class History On the fifteenth day of September, A.

These fifty-one fellows represented four States and one federal district, and each one was determined to uphold the name of hi s mother state. We lost both football and basketball games to our natural enemy, and enjoyed the satisfaction of nearly winning our rush. With baseball it was quite different; we sent the dreaded Sophs down to ignoble defeat, only to be humbled ourselves by the dignified Seniors. Our relay team hung up a new class record, helping us all to think that ' 17 had contributed something to the year ' s athletics. Our Freshman banquet was the event of the year. It really did more towards getting the fellows acquainted than anything had done before. By September, 1914, the class had shrunk to half its entrance size. Some of the fellows had learned enough in one year; some had become millionaires during the summer and couldn ' t afford to come back; others had various rea- sons just as good. With this handful we tried to show the Freshmen how things should be done. We showed them how to play baseball; most of the other events went to the First-Year men. When September, 1915, rolled around, our ranks had not depleted ap- preciably. For many, this was the hardest year. This was especially true of the engineers, the Arts and Science men never having any hard year, let alone hardest. However, most of us managed to answer to our names thruout the year. Our Prom was a novel departure from previous ones, and elicited favor- able comment from all sides. The year closed with everybody looking forward to occupying the front seats in Chapel during the next year. Our last year at Delaware opened inauspiciously. Our numbers were de- creased noticeably, but what was lacking in quantity was made up in quality. A pall was cast over our class because of the absence of one who had always been a leader in our class affairs, but who, by reason of misfortune, would never join with us again. Several of our boys were on the Mexican border, participating in the Great War with Villa. At the time of writing these fellows are still " watchfully wait- ing " for a truce. It is hard to imagine whether or no our " soldiers " will be back in time to graduate with the greatest class since " ' 96. " Now, on the eve of graduation it is interesting to look back over the past four years. We entered thinking we knew it all; as Sophs, we knew that we were wise; as Juniors, we began to have our doubts; and as Seniors, we realize what there is to be learned.

The same qualities of courage, skill, and endurance with which " Tom " Wilson made good on the athletic field and in college life, have enabled him to make good in the harder test of accident and long illness. The world can see now the traits which we admired in him as guard in football and basket- ball, as Captain of Company A, as student and true-hearted friend. On Dela- ware ' s roll of achievement, we would place high the spirit with which " Tom " " plays the game. " [52] junioRS Donald Pancoast Horsey President — Donald Pancoast Horsey Vice-President — Hugh Wagner Downing Secretary — John Hartzeli, Alderson Treasurer — George Allen Hudson Historian — Morris Randolph Mitchell [53] Junior Class History We were just regulation Freshmen that first year, — only, of course, much, oh, very much, sup- erior to most Freshmen. And in making this asser- tion we are not without historic backing. For in- stance, it was in our first year that the annual event which takes place between the Freshmen and the Sophs on the first Wednesday night of each year, was enlarged to theatrical proportions. On the platform of the old Chapel for a stage, our pugilists, wrestlers, and other athletes stepped forth, chal- lenging and vanquishing any venturesome oppon- ents. In the Class rush we won by a score of twenty-two to eight hands. And a gain we were victorious in the Class football game in spite of the fact that the Sophs had two Varsity men on their team. But it was not until our Sophomore year that we showed our marked individuality as a Class. As soon as College opened in September, 1915, however, we gave definite evidence that we would go high in life. On the sixteenth of that month our awe-inspiring numerals floated like a pirate ' s flag from the cross spar of the flag staff. The numerals " 19 " which in retaliation were placed on the belfry of the " Old Dorm " were quickly torn down in such haste that they had little time in which to mar the memories of that grand old building. But the flag staff did not satisfy us; we wished to climb still higher. Accordingly, two of our Class steeple-jacks ascended the heating plant smoke stack to a height of one hundred and twenty feet, and to the top thereof attached our victorious numerals which only wind and weather were to remove. Again in jealous hatred the Freshies hung their ill-fated " 19 " from the live wires which run across Main street. For this breach of manners they were promptly called down by the Mayor of the town and properly rebuked in Chapel. This year also we were victorious in the Class rush. And we were most successful in all other forms of athletics, being College champions in both baseball and basketball as well as winning many Varsity " D ' s " in track, baseball, basketball, and football. And now how shall we describe our sensations of sorrow on returning to College as Juniors and finding " Sehrt " gone, Lintner gone; also gone was that " F.-unny B.-oy " Hills, Robbie, the " Lieut, " and " Shund-wound " Hillegas. Also were gone a few of our Classmates who failed to return with us. The Campus was torn up with much grading; five familiar residences were torn down. Wolf Hall was up to the second story and ground was being broken for a new dormitory. A new and [54] ugly crew of Freshmen were arriving. Also there were many new " Profs " whom we could scarcely tell from the Freshies. Old homes had been patched up for new recitation rooms. And the old Dorm was but a ghost of its former self. But we consoled ourselves by thinking that all these things were for the good of the future. With this idea in mind we overlooked obstacles and faced our tasks with that same old determination which has characterized us from the beginning and of which we have before spoken, — to climb high in life. UNIOKS I55J John Hartzell Alderson Arts and Science Wilmington, Delaware Eligible for appointment to Rhodes Scholarship for Oxford Vniversitij, En- gland. " Hank " John Hartzell Alderson, known to all people except the members of the Faculty, as Hank, claims Wilmington for a home. Because of his exceptional ability to absorb knowledge his parents decided to send him to College before he had completed his preparatory work at Wilmington High; so he was brought to Newark to make the necessary arrangements for admission. When he was taken before the Committee there was much debating as to whether it would be wise to admit such a peculiar specimen as " Hank. " But at the crucial moment Frank Saylor, a similar specimen, entered the room, also to seek ad- mission. The Faculty immediately agreed that the size of the student body would be too greatly diminished if these two were left out. And so Hank got in, after all. At first we thought that this noble youth would become a minister. Upon closer acquaintance we found the idea preposteroug. Some of the kind-hearted upper classmen told Hank that bluffing was the only way to get through Col- lege. And he has followed that advice throughout. He even succeeded in getting around Connie and Pohl. Other bad habits - which Hank has learned are chewing, smoking, and saying " damn. " Yet with all the faults Hank has won a high place in the hearts of the student body through his sociable character and generous good nature. Away with him; he spealis Latin. ft.

Furthermore, he and Dean Robinson got their heads together and made up rules for the government of the Women ' s Col- lege. He is also the au thor of a neat handbook on Society rules and regulations.

" Monk " Alex came to us from Elkton, but unlike most of those Maryland guys, he is seldom heard to boast of the fact. Of course, we are not trying to slight Elkton, but when one knows that Bratton comes from that joint, one is sure to look with suspicion upon any other resident of the town. However, thank goodness, we have found out that Elkton is not to be judged by this representa- tive, for John Alexander proves the opposite to be true. John believes in thinking a lot and talking but little. Of course, we can- not criticise this characteristic but we do surmise that there must be some cause for his quiet nature. We have some inside dope that John keeps a con- tinuous stream of candy and flowers flowing from Elkton to Philadelphia. Well, he is not handling chicken feed for nothing. In athletics John has shown a lot of spirit. He has won several numerals in track and football. Besides thi s fact he is always out for basketball and baseball. Keep at it, John, and land a D.

" Berky " Berky blew into Newark in the Fall of 1914, following in the wake of a tall, thin, yet handsome youth who gave in his name as Catts. . They were first brought before the Committee on admission. Professor Short immediately made himself known to them and asked Alec what course of study he intended to pursue. Berky had no idea that any choice was allowed; so he was not pre- pared to answer this question. Noticing his confusion, Catts purred in his ear, " E. E. " In this manner Alec decided upon his life work. In grateful rem- embrance of this assistance Berky has always remained loyal to his big guardian. Since his entrance in College Berkman has been noted for his quiet man- ners and hard work. Besides carrying on his studies. Alec has worked as night telephone operator in Middletown, from which place he daily commutes. With such strong determination as he has shown throughout, we can feel no anxiety for Berky ' s success. Great is he to he; and until then we hope. [59] Knowles Ritchie Bowen, 2 E Civil Engineering Newark, Delaware Treasure?

" Bull " ; " Brat " Bratton was the last president of the historic Elkton Profanity League which formerly met in Buzzard Roost of the Old Dorm. This. social center was destroyed with the coming of Purnell House. Brat thinks it was a poor swap. There members could sleep on the chairs, keep on their hats, put their feet on the table, cuss, gamble, chew or smoke. And what ' s more, not any guy could join. The patient training of Mother Hastings is, however, making of Bratton a diligent Y. M. C. A. worker. " Bull " was one of our brave soldier boys who went to the border. But then who does not know the record of Sergeant Bratton in his service to the country? If any one does not, he is both deaf and blind. Speaking of bravery, Bratton was recently called on and found sleeping in class room. After the lecture he apologized to the professor. " Oh, that ' s all right, " was the reply. " I ' d been watching you put up a brave fight. " It is a boast of " Bull ' s " that no member of his family has ever done man- ual labor for two hundred years back.

We have spent much valuable time trying to locate this joint, but as yet have not succeeded. Our only conclusion is that it must be some distance up in the mountains, say twenty or thirty miles from a railroad. Nevertheless, Broady got here. As one of our noble classmates expressed it, " Aloeshus came here such a hay seed that the hay actually stucli out between his ribs. " However, two years of experience in College have worked wonders. The first important event in Allen ' s Freshman year was concerning Fresh- men caps. Broady could not imagine that he must wear the prescribed cap, but a little persuasion by an interested upper-classman caused him to change his mind. Consequently, Howard wore his little red cap with the green button and visor, just the same as the rest of us. In lessons Broady is a bear; always capturing high marks and prizes. Our only regret is that he does not enter more earnestly into the other College activities. God bless the man who first invented sleep.

" Bon " Brownie came to Delaware with high ambition to become an Electrical Engineer, but after a half year ' s experience with the dirt and grease of the machine shop he decided to try his luck in the Arts and Science course. The many good reports of Doc Vaughn ' s humor led this poor youth to choose History as a major study. It was not long until Brownie caught on to a good trick. Bond always sits on a front seat and almost splits his sides laughing at all of Doc ' s jokes. By this means he has succeeded in landing a long string of A ' s. However, we cannot attribute his high marks to this fact alone. Brownie has the reputation of being the greatest grind in College. In truth, we seldom see him excepting in the classroom and at the athletic contests. We would advise Brownie to mix with the fellows a trifle more in order that we may be benefited by the influence of his personality. (live thy thoughts no tongue!

Well, at first I thought that you were a dope fiend, and then that you thought my William was. Later I found out what you wanted, and of course, I want to do it. I have been knowing Bill for some time and we have been calling first names for more than a year and I just think he is a perfect dear. But of course I wouldn ' t like to write it out for a book. No girl would do that about a fellow she sure enough loved. So suppose I give you a few facts and you do the writing. It seems as though it would sound better coming from you. Well, my dearest Willie is a fine looking fellow with beee-aaa-uuu-tifullll brown eyes, oh! just the most beee-aaa-uuu-tifull brown eyes! And he ' s got the sweetest brown hair just to match his eyes. But whenever I tell him that, he always says mine is a heap the prettier. That ' s just the sort of a fellow my darling, darling Bill is. Oh, I wish that I could see him. If you see him real soon, please give him my very best love. Truly yours, Julia. P.

In fact, his mind resembles an adding machine. Everything he does is in accord with some mathematical plan. His life is controlled by sys- tem. There is no overlapping of work, pleasure and recreation in his scheme of things. Each has its specific amount of time allotted to it. Indeed, his system is so perfect that one seeing the debonair Mr. Carswell indulging in Terpsichorean delights would never suspect him of being the diligent student his classmates know him to be. It is not our desire to create an impression in your minds that our Thomas possesses a dual character such as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. What we are trying to do is to show you that whatever the hand of our hero finds to do, he does it with all his might. It is our opinion that Thomas should write an autobiography. We are certain it would be as enter- taining as " Black Beauty " and an excellent text book to educate the people to that high standard of efficiency exemplified by our renowned contemporary, Mr. Carswell.

No, he is not Maltese, — just a plain white kitten, uncommonly long and thin. From early childhood Catts has been ambitious to become a musician. After many years of hard practice he has succeeded in getting into the College orchestra and band. Although he does not play a Jew ' s harp in either of these o rganizations, it is said that his sweetest strains come from this instrument. We have been told that he gave a performance at the Women ' s College one night. No one knows how it was received. However, Paul, keep at it. " If music be the food of love, play on. " We must not pass by this zoological specimen without mentioning his ability to pole-vault. By persistent effort, Catts has developed into a star pole-vaulter.

He at once went to see Dr. Mitchell, who told him that he should enter Delaware and gain all the benefits to be derived therefrom. Here is a little story that will explain to you just how Cleaver attained his first nick-name. Paul traveled back and forth to Wilmington and persisted in carrying a straw suit-case with an umbrella attached. The fellows warned him to take the " Safety First " precautions and leave these relics at any place besides Newark. Alas, he would not obey and hence he received the name of " Biscuit. " That may not sound funny, but wait until you have read this one. In his Sophomore year, one of the largest, longest, laziest Freshmen was standing on the Chapel steps without his regulation Freshman cap. " Biscuit " walked up to him and said in a deep, gruff tone of voice, " Take off that hat and put on your Freshman cap, ' cause I ' m hard as nails. " Naturally we thought " Bisc " was some hard guy so we again nick-named him the honorable title of " Spike. " From that time on we turned the Fresh- ies over to " Spike " and were never troubled with them any more. The only thing we have to say in regard to " Spike ' s " future is that we all wish him the best of success in his life work.

He is one of the city sports who have read of the farm life in the " Country Gentleman " and chosen it as a life ' s profession. Dave will look about as funny on a farm as " Whitey " Walton would look at 42d and Broadway on his first trip away from home. Nevertheless, he has started on his profession; so give him a word of cheer and wish him the best of luck. Time, I dare thee to discover, Such a youth, and such a lover.

C, Business Manager Delaware Farmer, Class Track ' 15 and 16, Scrub Track ' 16, Twelfth Night. " Johnny " Pugilist Davis comes to us from Meshoppen, Pa., with an interesting story behind him. It had long been his ambition to attend College. By a most fortun- ate accident (?) he fell from a street car and was slightly injured. The car company gave him the job of mending the pavement where he had fallen. When the job was completed there were some two hundred dollars left over. He pocketed this amount and beat it for Delaware College. On account of this accident he had to have his head shaved. This gave him much the appearance of a convict, and many of us suspected him of being an escape from Sing Sing. But our suspicions were changed to smiles of admiration at his boxing in the indoor Class meet. His fame was heightened by his corking good speech at the Freshman banquet. In the three years that we have known him, John has grown a great deal and we have every reason in the future to expect still finer things from him. His strength you felt, and saw, and trusted. ••••••• • [70] Hugh Wagner Downing, K A.

Basketball ' 16 and ' 17, Quartermaster Sergeant Co. B. " Hugh " ; " Woman-hater " ; " Steeplejack " Hugh hails from Dover. Sad to relate, we must place him in the class of women-haters. For two years we patiently endeavored to inveigle him into going to the Women ' s College. But alas, our efforts were vain and we were com- pelled to give up in despair. On the 28th of November, 1915, Hugh appeared on the campus with big clumps of black soot behind his ears. Everyone wonder- ed what was the trouble. The mystery was revealed when it was found out that at 12.01 a. m. that morning Hugh had ascended the smoke stack of the heating plant and had placed a 1918 banner on the top of it. Sure enough, as we passed by the corner of the Dorms there was the banner waving triumph- antly in the air. Hugh has a very quiet and unassuming appearance. But look out for him. He worried more Freshmen in our Sophomore year than all the rest of the class together. When several members of our class were threatened with being fined for hazing. Hugh escaped because no one would believe that a chap with such a meek and innocent look could be capable of doing such things. Hugh has made good in both scholarship and athletics. He is one of the best engineering students that ever entered Delaware and seems to have all of his " Profs " bluffed to a standstill. Hugh is determined to make good in basketball. ■ ' Sticktoitiveness " is his motto. That is why we are all glad to know Hugh and to claim him as our friend.

" Perkie " Perkie takes life so easy that we often wonder if he would spend a nickel to see an earthquake. I don ' t believe he would, but I do know of something that he would spend his last penny on. That something is a trick. Perkie has spent days, and maybe nights, in the Philadelphia and New York stores hunting for some little trick that would fool someone. He never has a penny to buy candy and things, but he always carries about three dollars worth of these tricks around in his pockets. Another of Perkie ' s characteristics is that all-innocent air. No matter what happens, Perkie is always innocent. I don ' t believe that he is any ex- ception to the rule that the most innocent ones bear watching. He is another one of these " Country Gentleman " farmers. He spends his summers at Asbury Park and his winters in a flat. Won ' t the farm be surprised to see him? If Perkie ever does go to the farm, he will spend his time sitting on the flour barrels at the country store, joking with the farmers, and fooling them with his city tricks will be his chief occupation. He that getteth tvisdom loveth his own soul. [72] John Poole Gum, K A Arts and Science Frankford, Delaware 1917 Blue Hen Board, Athenaean Lit- erary Society, Sergeant Co. A, ' 16- ' 17. " Pierp " ; " Jack " ; " Spearmint " " Pierp " has an almost unnatural failing for the girls. When all fussed up and his hair primped, ready to make a sally on the W. C. D., he would make any of these fake movie heroes look like " Bug " Houghton ' s " buzz wagon " along- side of a 1917 Packard. Ah! When it comes to looks and plenty of them — John Poole wins the spongecake every time. Honest, girls, he ' s cute. And just think, he ' ll soon be able to vote. Now take a squint at the top of the page again — aren ' t those handsome eyes? The first time he went down Depot road every one of the girls ran over to " Pierp " trying to win him for themselves. However, albeit, and be that as it may, " Pierp " is an energetic fellow who keeps plugging at things until they are done. He is a very conscientious worker and we predict big things for him. True to his name, he sticks to whatever he attempts. Beard was never the true standard of brains. [78] Vaughn Hastings, O A Arts and Science Delmar, Delaware Athenaean Literary Society. " Calamity " This intelligent-looking lad hails from Delmar and fortunately from the Delaware side of the town. Soon after he entered college he earned the sob- riquet of Calamity. This pseudonym is the proper word to use when describ- ing Vaughn. During his first few days in college, Vaughn, in his ignorance, assailed the mighty " Vic, " Delaware ' s giant Full-back, and attempted, to hurl him down a bank. It was at this time the first calamity befell the youth from Delmar. The real reason for his earning the name of " Calamity " lies in the fact that he did not realize there was anything too big for him to undertake. Even tho he was unsuccessful in many of his lofty endeavors his spirit could never be broken and he was always ready to take another chance. This was made manifest by the fact that after being absent from college a year on ac- count of typhoid fever, he came back to finish his college course. As a student " Calamity " is an eflficient worker and he is never at a loss for words in the class room. He is at his best when found in a club of kindred spirits. There is nothing that suits him better than to sit before the fire place and dream of worlds to conquer. As all. progress in the world is due to dreamers, it is our sincere wish that our fellow student be able to add some accomplishment to this old world of ours. Not Hercules could have knocked out his brains, for he had none. L74] Roland Delaware Herdman Arts and Science Newark, Delaware Capt. Class Baseball ' 14 and ' 15, Corp- oral Co.

After working for five years in the Board of Health laboratory, Roland decided to enter College. Since he had not completed his High School course, however, it was naturally pretty up-hill work. Yet even with this handicap, he has succeeded in maintaining a high standard in College. His reputation as a ball player led to his election to the captaincy of our Freshman baseball team. In our Sophomore year, from the pitcher ' s box he won for us the championship of Delaware College in this sport. The memory of the just is blessed. [75] Robert Clark Hill, Jr., ti A Electrical Engineering Redden, Delaware Engineering Society, Athenaean Literary Society, Sergeant in Signal Corps. From a little town in Sussex, known by the name of Redden, Hill came to College with a great ambition to become an engineer. This ambition has been fostered by the Faculty and they are doing everything in their power to enable him to accomplish his purpose. His features are already those of an engineer. His waist line is most expansive, and his face is round and jovial, but when occasion demands it takes on those grim, determined lines which are so charac- teristic of an engineer. Furthermore, he wears the regulation felt hat and has a habit of catching his thumbs in his suspenders. To complete the picture he places a cigar in the side of his mouth and behold! we have at least the impersonation of an engineer. He was not taken seriously by his associates and this was a source of vexation to him. In order to establish himself in his afflicted soul, he used to go thru a strenuous period at the Gym every morning. At last satisfied that he was sufficiently acquainted with the manly art of self defense, he again asserted himself and challenged his tormenters. He found this method of procedure to be a failure, so he again changed his policy and became a most congenial fellow. Last year he put a goodly portion of his allowance in his sock each week, and when the month of May came around he purchased a beautiful diamond ring. Placing his purchase in a pocket that is nearest the sentimental again he boarded the Delaware road train for Milford. The young lady of his choice, met him with ' Old Dobbin ' hitched to the shay. Hilly was so nervous because of the fateful step he was about to take that he was speechless during the long drive home. After he had stafitul- ated his appetite most prodigiously (Hill is not the kind that loses the appetite) his courage returned to him. We must draw the curtain here, but to satisfy our readers we will say that Hill is now engaged to be married. [76] William Bigelow Hoey, 2 E Electrical Engineering Frederica, Delaware Engineering Society, Delta Phi Literary Society, Sergeant Signal Corps. " Bill " Bill hailed from the famous Randolph Macon Academy. Somehow he got the idea that he would make an ideal Electrical Engineer; so he came to Dela- ware. In his Freshman year we could not keep him in Newark over the week- ends. Why? I think it was an attraction in Easton or Allentown, Penna. But when midyears ' rolled by and he received that report! Well, he got down to work and all one saw of Bill was his coat tail as he flew from one Prof, to another making engagements with the honored members of the faculty. During his Sophomore year Bill worked quite hard. It was in this year that he joined the notorious band known as the " signal corps. " He and that side-kick of his, " Hill, " did some fine work with those wireless sets. It was during this year that Bill met one of our fair Newark damsels and ? Well, we ' ll leave the rest of it for the class to fill in. The outline of work for his Junior year was as follows: Study (awhile) ; Women (we mean one woman) ; same thing again; a duplicate of the preceding; and finally he takes up the new study of love. Aside from this he has very little time to spend with the fairer sex. Congratulations, Bill. Even a child is known by his doings.

" Hoff " This beautiful youth has spent much time working out the geometrical problem, — " What is the shortest distance between two points. " After about twenty years of hard work we believe that he has succeeded in mastering it. Our reason for this belief is the fact that his back is a perfect straight line. But by the way, this is not the only stiff proposition Ellie has found in math- ematics. Mollie has been a real terror to him. However we feel that Mollie will have mercy on him and let him through after he has completed that shelf of library books which he has been donating to Delaware College through re- exam fees. " Hoff " has certainly been struck on the idea of an affiliated college. In- spired by this thought he has been a regular Saturday night attendant at the Saturday evening parties at the W. C. D.

Class Basketball ' 15 and ' 16, Class Football ' 15, Class Track ' 15, Agrictdtural Club, Sergeant Co. A. This young man ' s name, as you see, is geographically an error, for we all know that the Clyde is a river in England and not a river in Holland. Even though his name would imply that he hails either from England or Holland, he came from Smyrna, Delaware. Holland ' s chief asset is his manly beauty. This in conjunction with his debonair ways makes an irresistible appeal to the fair sex. Many are the maids who have succumbed to his ardent wooing only to be cast aside when another beauty crossed his path. Why this youth should bring sadness to so many worshiping maidens has until recently been a great mystery to us. Upon making an investigation into his past life we learned that in his younger days he had bestowed the wealth of his affection upon the " only girl, " but alas! she spurned his love and broke his heart. Since that time he has cherished a Vendetta against all feminine charmers and has taken the unique method I have described to avenge himself. It is our earnest desire that the Circe who blighted his life, will smile once more upon him and thus restore him to his natural state. Agriculture is Clyde ' s field of study and when he can get an audience he will discourse on farming for hours at a time. So well versed is he in Ag. that he was able, during vacation, to take charge of a farm in Connecticut. If we can judge by his report, never did such pro- duce grow, as was grown during his administra- tion. Holland has ever been a hard worker and has taken great interest in all College affairs. It is this ambition of studiousness and good fellow- ship that has won for him the friendship and res- pect of his fellow students.

His first departure from Dover must have been characterized by the weeping of the entire female population. With this sad parting still in his heart, he arrived at Newark early in September. On the Wednesday night before the opening of college, the upper classmen found a fellow in the Sophomore class that was as small as Don. They immediately staged a wrestling bout between these midgets. Two specimens of so small a species are rare. Immediately he became a class hero by defeating the other fellow. After this frolic, Don settled down to the work of writing one letter every night and two letters, if he had anything to say. As soon as Don was settled and had become interested in his work, he compiled some statistics on how much it costs a young married couple to live in Dover, Wilmington, Philadelphia, or Jenkin- town, and on the minimum salary that a young man should receive to support happily in marriage one of Dover ' s society belles. Anyone in college desiring this information can obtain it from D. P. Horsey who has it filed for future reference. Outside of ladies, " Don ' s " principal duty is to his college. He is a leader in everything that he undertakes and he always has plenty of " pep " to give to those things in which he does not take part. He is an earnest worker and we predict and hope him success. A manly man, and debonaire of cheere Wythwel assured lokynge and manere.

" Hucky " Given a pair of Tortoise-shell glasses and a walk that belongs to no one else, you have George Allen Hudson, Esq. Of course we do not mean to say that there is nothing more to " Hucky. " There are many other things. For example, he has two ears on which to hang the spectacles. Then there is a nose on which to rest the glasses, for they are to rest his over-worked eyes. And under the glasses you will usually find several red spikes about a quarter of an inch long. From which fact you may deduce two facts, first, that Hucky also has a chin, and second, that he has a hard time keeping the grass cut. We dare prophesy that if Hudson would only go out for the debating prizes he would win them all. For he has never been known to be defeated in any argument. We are reminded of the puotation, " In argueing too, the Parson own ' d his skill, for e ' en though vanquished he could argue still. " Though George may be somewhat " Bull-headed, " yet this again is not a complete picture of our fellow student. Nor does it do him justice.

(Skutch) This blonde-haired Swede admits that he came from Lewes. He has a good face and one could hardly believe this outrageous fact; but after close investigation the editorial staff is forced to accept the statement as true. We have tried to make him forget it but just when we think our patient is cured, he yells out at the top of his voice some unexplainable something that even he himself does not understand. Another serious defect in this Swede ' s anatomy is that he talks in his sleep. A contagious grin and happy-go-lucky spirit have made " Skutch " one of the most popular men on the campus. He is one of the type of fellows who, when they are happy, everyone knows it and is glad with them, but when they are sad they get sympathy from everyone. We hope that personality, good nature, and big heartedness will bring this college mate success.

Auburn, sandy, brick-colored? No. It is just simply fiery. Now it is true that he will not take much kidding, but no one could call " Red " quick-tempered.

Aside from his salary as cornetist, he should have received a heavy sum from the proprietor on ac- count of his drawing trade. The news of " Ernie ' s " arrival at the hotel spread like wild fire and within a week ' s time the Pennsylvania railroad was running excursions from Wilmington and other points in the State to take care of the heavy traffic between said points and Rehoboth. Of course " Ernie " is one of our best students, and he and Tommy Carswell are going to set the world on fire by some of their wonderful discoveries in the chemical line. They have already shown that they know so much about chem- istry, that " Tiff " has hired them to take charge of the chemistry course in order that he may have more time to study up on some of their theories.

" Buzz " " Buzz " is one of the most boisterous, energetic, gritty, and ambitious men of our class. He studies quite industriously, but his chief diversion is football. Meyers has, until recently, been a scrub man. The Varsity has " scrubbed " the field with him time after time. To make good in football was " Buzz ' s " greatest ambition. He tackled the dummy relentlessly, he dove head-first into stone walls, and he would jump into the air and fall, in a thousand different ways, on cement walks. All this in order to become tough and hard enough to play. We are glad that his method of training was successful and that he has become a Varsity man. Meyers hates to get his hair cut. Why? Because it is necessary to have his ears set back when he does. The well-known species, the donkey, has to surrender his laurels to " Buzz " when it comes to ears. But Meyers ' interest is not limited to his ears, and to his football. He has taken an active part in literary work. His reward for this interest is the Presidency of the Delta Phi Literary Society. " Buzz " is one of the best-heart- ed men in our class. The whole college admires him for his grit in sticking to football till he made good. He sticks to everything he tries and does not believe in failure. We feel sure that he will accomplish great things in the future and be an honor to our class.

" Mitch " ; " Big Boy, " etc., etc. Here we present to you our distinguished editor. How do you like him? " Mitch " is a Southerner thru and thru. Walking down the street back of him one is struck with the volubility of the gigantic form • in front. But on overtaking that same person one meets an excellent example of southern aristocracy. " Mitch " has the honor of being the largest man in our class and in the College. He is over six feet tall and his coal black hair, prominent cheek bones, and dark complexion strongly resemble paintings of the Aborigines of America. A few years ago " Mitch ' s " parents had to make frantic efforts all over the United States to find shoes large enough to fit him. At the present time such efforts are vain. It is now necessary to slaughter a herd of beeves and send for a couple of expert shoemakers. Even this expensive process fails at times because shoemakers cannot always build gunboats. " Mitch " is great for telling tales of the South. His best is about " de goose what ain ' t had bout one laig. " His joke repertoire is world wide and we recommend him to you for an evening ' s entertainment. Regardless of feet size, and fame as a raconteur, " Mitch " has made himself one of the most prominent men in College. He is " there " in everything he attempts — except German. His ability as an orator has been proven again and again even after suffering from overwork in that regard in his Freshman year. Were all the members of our Class and of the Blue Hen Board of " Mitch ' s " material we could turn out countless Blue Hens and establish such high records as no future class could even hope to equal.

At least, he is everlastingly saying, " I am going down to Virginia next summer, bo. " We have not yet been able to dope out whether he means the state of Virginia or the girl ' s name. Probably it is both in this case. He is always telling us, " There are sure some pretty girls down there in Virginia. You all had better go down with me some time. " In College activities Terry has certainly taken his full share of the work. He has made all of the debating teams in both intercollegiate and intersociety debates. As a result of his efforts Terry captured the prize in oratory. Be- sides this honor he also pulled down the Purnell prize in French; so you see he has the stuff in his lessons too. Terry is working hard on the violin now and has a fine chance to make the Orchestra this year.

" Al " In dealing here with our fellow-classmate J. A. O ' Daniel, we have thought it more modest to give the following excerpt from the Encyclopedia Britannica, rather than eulogise one with whom we are so intimately connected: " O ' DANIEL, JAMES ALLISON. Agriculturist, b. Newark, Delaware, 1828, and still going strong. At an early stage he showed his undying love for the science of Agriculture. At the age of four (1832), when asked if on reaching college age he intended to take the cultural course, he replied, ' Yes, Agricultural. ' As a Freshman at Delaware College he did his real farm work when he ploughed up the athletic field in the Class football game. He won further distinction by winning his Class numerals in baseball. These were but the beginnings of a great and still promising career. " We are tempted to mention many more of his achievements which have occurred since the above-quoted authority went to press. Yet through modesty alone we refrain from so doing. For nature made him what he is And ne ' er made sich anither.

" Bill " " Bill " arrived in Newark on that memorable day, September 15th, 1914. When " Bill " came to us he was a diamond in the rough, and, like a very ex- cellent diamond, he was hard to cut. This was made evident by the fact that he has resurrected the Cavalier style of allowing his hair to grow very long, and when his friends would suggest a barber shop he would exhibit much un- easiness. However, as the time passed by " Dill " gradually acquired the habits of his contemporaries. Today, Mr. Price is a college man in every sense of the word. Not only is he a diligent seeker after the wisdom of the soil, but he is active in all College affairs. As a humorist he is without a peer. When- ever conversation lags or things get dull, the " Old Reliable " comes across with an appropriate remark that will produce mirth where erstwhile gloom did reign supreme. Our hero ' s favorite pastime when not engaged in College affairs is to sleep. When wrapped in the embrace of Morpheus, an angelic smile pervades his countenance, thus forming a picture that seems to permeate the atmosphere with contentment. On one occasion when " Bill " had been out (somewhere) the night before, we were awakened the next morn- ing by hearing someone talking in a manner that reminded us of Hamlet ' s soliloquy. The beginning of it was as follows: " To sleep or not to sleep, that is the question; whether it is better here to rest, or rise to work. " Upon investigating the source of the sentiments we found " Bill " perched on the side of his bed, orating as described. To do him justice we must say that he resolved to work, and has ever exhibited such pertinacity in his pursuit of knowledge that we are certain of his success in life. Silence is as deep as eternity, speech is shallow as time.

I am Marshall boy of Company A. I hate women, all kinds, forms, and descriptions. I enjoy myself only with men. My ambitions are to become Major of the battalion and to graduate from Delaware in three years. I should like to play football and baseball and see absolutely no reason why the Coach does not recognize my extraordinary ability in those lines. I am quite brilliant and have helped Delaware College immensely, but I have not received credit for my work. In conclusion I should like to quote a few lines which seem to sum up my character in a few words. They are, ' I am the Great, I am, I am. I am the mighty, I am, I am ' .

" Cheswold " We feel that " Doc " in selecting the Agriculture course made a great mis- take. Any person gifted with such eloquence and dramatic ability as this handsome youth is, should have taken the Arts and Science course instead of hiding, as it were, his light under a bushel. How this fellow who can don the costume of Maivolio and acting the part hold an audience spell-bound through- out the entire performance, can descend to the lowly-scienced agriculture is beyond our scope of reasoning. But such is the case, for we have witnessed this transition on more than one occasion. " Doc " is always on the run. Not only is he trying to complete his course in three years, but he is connected with the Review and the Delaware Farmer. In addition to this, he is generally rehearsing for a play. It is our opinion that this bustling about from place to place has deceived the Faculty into the supposition that he never has an idle moment, but is ever on the job. " Doc ' s " hobby is judging shoats and to gratify this hobby he will forsake all else. As busy as " Doc " is, he manages to spend most of his week-ends at Cheswold. We have never been able to ascertain the nature of the " lode-stone " that draws him there. However, various rumors have come to us and we feel just- ified in concluding that he has a deep and personal interest in a certain young lady who dwells near Cheswold, Del. To " Doc " we inscribe our best wishes that he may be a successful tiller of the soil. A prophet is not without honor save in his own country and among his own people.

" Seal Saylor " " Dutch, " the human frog, crawled from his lair on the Christiana, to take up the Kultur course (Arts and Science), at Delaware College. While here he has struck up a lasting acquaintance with Laurence Witsil and now the two are inseparable. Almost any afternoon they may be found in -the College swim- ming pool, where they splash and gurgle for hours at a time. " Dutch " is a member of the Gym Quartette and when his melodious voice is heard a crowd of admiring listeners gather about him. His favorite song is entitled, " On The Right Side Of Temperance We ' ll Now Take Our Stand. " If he ever hits the road we devoutly believe that the winning power of his wonderful voice will make Billy Sunday a back number. As a diplomat, " Dutch " is supreme. This was shown by the fact that he was able to convince the Lieut, that he was not able to drill. Nevertheless, he is able to play basketball, jump, and pole-vault. He has often proven his prowess in the above-mentioned sports by defeating " Hank " Alderson and " Perkie " Goldy in their famous triangular field meets of last May. " Dutch ' s " winning ways have not only won for him an enviable position in the student body, but with the Faculty as well. His ability in absorbing knowledge is extraordinary. Even to this day he can spiel off yards of Chaucer, Stevenson and Browning. When " Dutch " is not at Col- lege he may be found warming a bench in 10th St. Park. We are not certain of the reason for his spending so much time in this park, but when we consider his esth- etic temperament we derive the fact that his true love lives thereabout. Frank has not told us, but we have reason to believe that he intends to go on a Chautauqua circuit when he leaves College.

He has reputation far and wide for the fearless investigation of ghosts in graveyards and other petty jobs. His best qualification for this kind of work is his ability to run. One night a large crowd of Freshmen were having a celebration on the college campus. Suddenly some Sophomores appeared. As " Bob " was a Freshman he decided almost immediately that he should be home studying. He started down the path on high gear. Dean Smith says that " Bob " was going so fast that he had to run into the Library wall in order to turn himself down Main Street. But once started on that long straightaway, he fairly flew. The next morning " Bob " said, " There were a couple of fellows ahead of me, but it wasn ' t long before I passed them. " " Bob " is a man of wonderful musical abijity. He always seeks a bathtub to act as a sounding board for his music. You will agree with me that it is sweet harmony that is reflected from the bathtub. De- spite these handicaps " Ikey " is the illustrious leader of the band and orchestra. These two or- ganizations under the leadership of Sumwalt manage to keep our chapel exercises and smokers in a complete uproar! " Bob " is a hard, earnest worker.

" Trombone " Paul is a finished product of the W. H. S. He has about him that air of cocksureness which is so characteristic of the Wilmington students. Fortun- ately he was able to suppress this air in his Freshman days or the chances are that he would have never survived to become a Junior. He is one of our city agricultural men — the kind that can quote learnedly from any text book but lose the power of application when it comes to a regular farm instead of an audience. This, however, is taken care of by the College because, the faculty require two summers ' experience on a farm before one can be graduated in Ag. Paul is one of our most versatile youths; his many accomplishments range from the art of selecting seed corn to executing music on the trombone, but he is at his best when he renders the compositions of the old masters on his violin. As a student Paul is a consistent worker and has always been one of the leaders in the class room. W believe that there is a great future in store for this many-sided young man and he may be assured that he has the hearty support of his classmates.

Stop, girls, and give this young man your most careful consideration. He is the only man in the Junior Class who has that divine worshiper of the " class of ' 96 " buffaloed. There is never a day that Prof. S and Carswell do not have to call on him to straighten them out on bridge trusses, and still some of you girls are letting him slip right through your fingers, when you have had the chance of your life to land the only rival of the " class of ' 96. " Never fear, girls, " Tom " is also an athlete. He is a wonder on the " horse " and on the track. It is said he appeared in football uniform one afternoon and as soon as Coach spied this young Goliath, he immediately signed him up; but on account of his studies, " Tom " had to withdraw. Between the combined efforts of Srager and " Doc " Harter, we feel sure that " Tom " is going to make a first-class mechan- ical engineer, and he has the hearty support of the whole Junior class in regard to his success.

He was so favorably impressed by the spirit of Old Delaware that he redeemed his ticket and settled in Newark to take the Agricultural course. The first association with which " Nat " identified himself was the " R. N. G. " The members of this pugnacious crew were ever on duty when there was any misunderstanding between the Sophomore and Freshman classes. " Nat " also takes great interest in athletics, especially in track. His first appearance on the cinder path was an imitation of a cow running at breakneck speed. Under the supervision of the Coach he gradually acquired a graceful and systematic stride, and now he is a dependable mile man. " Nat " gives his address as Dover, Delaware, but when we consider that he spends most of the week-ends at Elwyn, Pa., we are inclined to believe that he is contemplating a change of address soon. As a student, " Nat " is a hard worker and has made good in his course. The belligerent attitude that is so characteristic of " Nat " is the most outstanding trait in his char- acter. This has won for him not only a promin- ent position in the student body, but it has im- pressed the Faculty that he is determined to master his course.

" Toddy " The i reatest burden " Toddy " has ever had or will ever have to bear is his name. Think of it, gentle readers, and U know that your hearts will go out in sympathy to this much-named lad. The preoccupied air that is so char- acteristic of Todd was for a long time a source of speculation to us, but one day he became confidential and told us his name. Ever ready to help and sympathize, we advised him to read Pilgrim ' s Progress and see if he could find something in it that would bring solace to his tortured soul. To look at Todd, you would think that a puff of wind would bear him away; but this is a case where looks are deceiving, for when he gets next to an alto horn and blows in it, all quiet is dispersed and noise pervades the place. This power of producing sound has won for him a place in our wonderful band. Conscious of his wonderful talent, Todd can be depended upon to toot his best whenever occasion demands. One of Todd ' s favorite pastimes is the reading of popular novels. He has made a study of all heroines and has concocted from them an ideal which he car- ries in his mind. It is his avowed purpose in life to find a girl who will resemble this ideal. Of course we wish him success in his venture, but, candidly, we don ' t believe it possible. As a stu- dent " Toddy " is a hard worker and ever applies himself to what he sets his hand to do, whether it be playing a horn, in quest of his ideal, or his College work.

" Whitey " On the first day of College in 1914, this tall, graceless, lean, lanky, tow- headed, long-legged boy rode up in front of Recitation Hall in regular cow-boy style. He was immediately surrounded by a group of curious students. To the question " Where do you live, " Whitey answered, as he descended from a nag as long and lanky as himself, " From the wilds of Iron Hill. " He was somewhat rowdy at first and his frequent misdemeanors caused much anxiety to the Faculty. He is gradually quieting down, however, and it seems probable that he will be fully civilized by June, 1918. " Ichabod " is still a terror to us all. For though we have little fear of his cow-boy pistols and lassoes, there is much fear lest he some time trample on some of his classmates by mistake. Whitey finds it difficult to get time enough for sleep. Between studi es at night and twelve cows to be milked in the morning, besides his daily chores, there is little time left. However, Walton makes up most of this lost sleep by sleeping through his classes. Sometimes we fear for his health. But " Molly ' s " the doctor, eh, Whitey? He was the very genius of famine.

And when the Freshmen had their picture taken. Whew! but they did get wet. " Marv " ran out on the chapel steps with a bucket of water and drenched the whole bunch. Where he hid himself on that occasion, no one can discover. After great effort we found that the stove in the kitchen had been pushed away from the wall. Marvel had hidden himself behind the stove at all such times. However, with all his faults and flunks " Marv " is a mighty reliable sort of a chap.

The class has personality, real and inspiring to its contemporaries. Its ambition is to reform the few faulty precedents and set new standards. Its accomplishments are of no small consequence and deserve mention here. On the night before college opened in 1915, the class acquitted itself with honor against the Sophomores. In boxing, Marconetti could find no equal; in wrestling Mike Plam was supreme, and Weldin showed great strength. In the annual Freshman-Sophomore meet, these same men, aided by athletes of no less ability, won all but two events. The inter-class football game fell to 1919, also. Then just before the Dickinson game the class paraded, masked and costumed, and the splendor of this parade has yet to be equalled. The class banquet brings pleasant memories to all present. Nineteen-nineteen was again victor in the inter-class track meet with 52 points, with Craig, Marston, and Fitzpatrick and others showing creditably. Incidentally " Fitz " broke the standing record in the half mile during the season in a hair raising finish. The class of ' 20 did well against such opponents by tying the football game and fall track meet. At the close of the 1915 year the class held a smoker, the first of its kind, and the enthusiasm there shown for the old Alma Mater is typical of the class attitude. On returning to begin the Sophomore year, 1919 kept up its prece- dents, gave a second class smoker, and ordered class hats (to be proud of) and class pins. At the same time the class started plans to make the Blue Hen an annual. In this they again broke a custom, and set a new standard in this activity to benefit the college. A third smoker was held before the class foot- ball game, and then the Sophomores chose the Hotel Adelphia in Philadelphia, for their banquet this year. Such smokers have created in the class a unity of spirit in college, as well as in class affairs. The class is closely bound in fellowship and in this we mourn the loss of our good natured comrade, W. Hooper Giles, a youth who was an inspiration and example to all students. His classmates seem to have dedicated their lives to the ideals for which he stood and which he unconsciously exemplified. The duty of 1919 is serious, the spirit genial, in accord with Delaware ' s greater development. It is here with a purpose THE HISTORIAN. [108] 4) In O 6 o •c; Q.

The success of these attempts was due to the superior number of the " e. f s. " When the Sophs hung their numerals in Chapel, a fracas was started which promised to develop into a first class combat. Dr. Mitchell, however, stepped in with true W. J. B. spirit and sprinkled us with the olive-hyssop.

(Pray don ' t fail to see the joke). When football practice was called for the first time, we supplied Coach McAvoy with an abundance of material; " Bess " Carter, Selby, Clancy, Mc- Corkindale, Hirschman, Bernado, Goggin, Williams and Lambert being some of our more or less (mostly less) successful candidates. On October 20th, we paraded thru town in fancy and comic costumes. Great enthusiasm was shown and we made a decided hit. (Come on and quit this kidding). There were three prizes offered, of which Hanley copped the first, Williams the second ( ' Lo Eddie), and Blair the third.

Our track meet with the Sophomores was an exciting event and hotly con- tested. At times we had the Sophomores delirious with fear. The final tally showed that we had tied them 54-54. Captain McDowell, Lyons, Williams, Chalmers, and Graves were our stellar performers. The straw vote taken on October 24th showed that we were Democrats 42-28.

It stands for the unity and democracy of education and receives the engineer, the agriculturist, the architect, or the chemist as heartily as it does the classicist or man of letters. The chapters of the Phi Kappa Phi are located as follows: 1898 University of Maine 1899 Pennsylvania State College 1900 University of Tennessee 1901 Massachusetts Agricultural College 1904 Delaware College 1912 Iowa State College 1912 University of Florida The badge is an eight-rayed representation of the sun surrounding the earth, across which there is a band displaying the letters K The band represents union in a world of thoughtful men. The eight rays represent Art, History, Literature, Philosophy, Religion, Science, Philology and Sociology. The Delaware chapter of Phi Kappa Phi was installed January 13, 1905, by Professor Benjamin F. Gill, M.A., of State College, Pa., treasurer-general of the fraternity.

As a result the dances and other entertainments given in the course of the year showed, in the admirable manner in which they were carried out, the possibilities of properly conducted social life at Delaware. A suitable place in which to hold dances was provided with the completion of the new State armory. The large drill room of this building furnishes a dance floor capacious enough to accommodate a large number of people. M h 9 ; iQie; ' Thanksgiving dance held in the gymnasium was one iNovemDer Sb, ivib. biggest hits of the past season. Fifty-nine couples who were present all seemed to enjoy themselves. The music was excellent and contributed greatly to the success of the dance. n K in iQii; Sigma Nu held its annual dance in the new armory Fri- uecemDer lu, I9i5. evening, December 10th. Seventy couples were present. The music was furnished by Jacob ' s orchestra from Wilmington. The hall was tastefully decorated with laurel and with Delaware banners, the var- ious banners of the fraternities that have chapters at Delaware, a number of pennants of the colleges in which Sigma Nu has chapters, and with bunting in Black, white and gold, the fraternity ' s colors. The dance was a success in every sense of the word. T 7 iQifi " Friday evening, January 7th, the Sigma Phi Epsilon January , laib. Fraternity held its annual dance in the armory. The hall was beautifully decorated with the colors of the fraternity, purple and red predominating. The refreshments were exceptionally enjoyable, and the music unusually good. The occasion was to the utmost and the dance proved one of the most successful affairs of the season. „ , A iQifi ' Junior Prom which was held in the armory was attend- l-eoruary , b. j more people than any Prom ever given in College before. Oglesby ' s orchestra from Chester was an added attraction, and because of the splendid music the dances were wonderful. Especial emphasis seemed to have been paid the music and eats. Everyone present highly complimented the refreshment committee. Taken as a whole, this Prom has never been equaled in College. AT iQ 1Q1C ° hundred couples, many of them visitors, attended the May IS, 1916. twelfth annual dance of Beta Epsilon chapter of K. A. of Delaware College held in the armory Friday evening. May 19th. This fraternity has a reputation for its delightful dances and the one Friday night was no exception. The large dance room was tastefully decorated with flags, bunting and pennants. The Omega fraternity gave two large and informal house parties on April 18 and April 29. Many smaller house parties were given by this fraternity after the big games during the season. With the house decorated and an orchestra from Wilmington, all of these dances were an immense success. [138] Liieutenant William Ferguson Hoey, Jr. Lieutenant William Ferguson Hoey, Jr., 1st Lieut. Infantry D. 0. L., entered upon his duty as Commandant in September of this session. Although Captain C. C. Herman had raised the efficiency of the Battalion a hundred percent Lieutenant Hoey realized that there was still much to be done. And he went about the task like a battering ram. Men must not only drill correctly, they must bear themselves always as soldiers. Lieutenant Hoey insists on immacul- ate dress, close attention, hard work and the co-operative spirit. His ability as a leader has been proved by the way in which he has met the present crisis with practical, well thought-out plans. [139] Showing the Patriotic Response of the Faculty to the Crisis Succeeding the United States ' Declaration of War with Germany April 17, 1917. In view of the uncertainty existing in regard to our duty concerning mil- itary preparation, rural questions, and other patriotic service, the Faculty of Delaware College discussed these questions and appointed a central committee of the Faculty with power to act. This committee consists of President Mitchell and Lieutenant Hoey, Dean Smith, Dr. Harter, and Dr. Sypherd, representing the School of Arts and Science, Dean Hayward, Professor Grantham, and Professor McCue, represent- ing the School of Agriculture, Dean Cullimore, Professor Koerber, and Profes- sor Short, representing the School of Engineering. After deliberation upon the various phases of these problems, this central committee empowered me to make the following statements: First: It is the sense of the Faculty that in view of the gravity of the crisis facing us, Delaware College will make every effort to adjust its work so that the students and Faculty may be of the greatest service to the country. Second: A student whose presence is required at home on the farm must present a request to that effect from his parents. This request will be brought before the central committee of the Faculty, which will investigate and treat each case on its individual merit, and determine how credit for College work shall be given under the circumstances. It is understood, of course, that no one will leave College to accept a posi- tion solely for his personal advantage. Third: The cases of students who may be called out with the militia and others who may be requested to take part in any other patriotic service will be treated in the same manner as the above. Fourth: Students who are excused from College work for any sort of patriotic service will be required to make a bi-monthly report of their work to the Dean of the school in which they are registered. In each case this report must be certified to by the employer. Fifth: Special training, consisting of eighteen periods of instruction, covering three weeks of six periods each, will be arranged for students who [141] The Band The Color Bearers — Sergeant Fraser, and the Staff [142] are twenty-one years of age, and members of the Junior and Senior classes eligible for work in the Reserve Officers ' Training Corps who may not be twenty-one years of age and who have already signified their willingness to take this work. The purpose of this special training is that those who elect it may be properly prepared to pass the prescribed examinations and accept commissions. A schedule of classes and sections of this instruction will be made, students assigned to the various sections, and lists of such sections prepared and posted at the earliest possible moment (it is expected that classes will be organized and formal work begin on Monday next). Conflict of this work with formal College work will be good and sufficient excuse for absence from the conflicting period of College work. In giving final credit for College work, the instructor concerned will make due allowance for time missed in view of this arrangement. Sixth: It is hoped that arrangement can be made by which the physical examination required can be taken here as early as possible. It is useless for a student to elect this special course of training who would be rejected ultimately. Seventh: An attempt will be made to have the examinations for entrance into the Reserve Officers ' Training Corps given at Delaware College. Eighth: All points arising under the above provisions and matters not covered therein which may need adjustment will be referred to the central committee of the Faculty, which will meet as frequently as required and which will endeavor to adjust all questions as wisely as possible.

Two contests are scheduled each year. At present four men form a team, the alternate making rebuttal speech. The fiist debate was held at Annapolis, January 5, 1916, the question being, " Resolved, That Congress should adopt a policy of increased armaments. " After a very interesting discussion of the subject the judges gave the decision to St. John ' s. The men from Delaware were splendidly entertained by their friends, after being defeated. Those on the trip were Terry Mitchell, T. S. Carswell, M. R. Mitchell, H. C. Bounds, alternate and Dr. K. Roberts Greenfield, coach. The same debaters opposed St. John ' s when they came to Newark in the spring, except that M. R. Mitchell lost his place to W. S. Levey. Another military topic was chosen — " Resolved, That every able bodied male citizen should be required to take, under adequate provision, at least one year at military or naval training. " The Blue and Gold won by a unanimous vote of the judges. [148] Delta Phi JLiterary Society The present team consists of Morris Mitchell, L. R. Witsil, Terry Mitchell and T. S. Carswell. The annual intersociety debate took place during commencement week, 1916, Philippine independence being the question. The Alumni prizes for the best speeches were won by Terry Mitchell of the Athenaean and T. S. Carswell of the Delta Phi Societies, and the decision was given to the team of the latter, the Athenaean losing for the first time in several years. The debaters for both sides are given below : Athe7iaean R. W. Cooke L. B. Steele Terry Mitchell Delta Phi 11. C. Bounds T. S.

M. C. A. has more than kept up with the progress of other interests of the college. Two years ago the Y. M. C. A. was the personal property of one or two individuals. It had always been so, and was handed down as a useless heirloom from one student to the next. The gift from Mr. Rodney Sharp of furnishing Purnell House as a Christian Association building was the first big step of improvement. The student body became interested and took over the organization for their own. Too much credit cannot be given to Jim Hastings, who, as president of the Y. M. C. A., exercised far more initiative, patience, and good spirit than is generally realized. On September next Old College Hall will be in readiness as the new Y. M. C. A. Hall. In such quarters we can only try to imagine the influence of this organization. [150] msici It seems quite unusual that a college of only some two hundred should be able to maintain three musical organizations. But such is the case. We have the Orchestra and Band, which have been organized for several years, and the Mandolin Club which is in its second year. There is a remarkable degree of appreciation and knowledge of music in the student body. The members of the Orchestra are: First Violins, R. L. Sumwalt, C. D. Fletcher, A. Gutowitz: Second Violins, A. G. Heinel, W. W. Lattomus, and T. Mitchell; Piano, G. H. Madden; Cornets, E. M. Marks, A. L. Lauritsen, H. P. Cleaver; Flutes, J. W. Humphrey, P. E. Hardin; Trombone, P. G. Swayne. [151] The Mandolin Club Earle Plumley, Leader The Mandolin Club was organized by Earle Plumley in 1916. The original members were in the main from a former mandolin club at the Wilmington High of which he was leader. Since its founding the club has broadened out and now includes several members of the faculty as well as the upper class- men. The Mandolin Club has given three recitals this year as well as having played several times for the Chapel exercises. The first concert was at Mid- dletown, the second at th e W. C. D. and the third at the Century Club in Wil- mington. All of these occasions were much enjoyed by those present.

They discus . t scher s for II the t I and bility of Che college, and listened eagerly to r«ports of the progresa already made on the improvements, and to plans f or the future. The West- inghouse fellows were particular- ly interested in the equipment and needs of the •[•ctrtcal laborat ry All Hbped that the Y H. C.

Undoubtedly they are the right sort of alumni; and any Delaware " grad " who wanders into the vicinity of pittaburgh should feel proud to be one of The addition of twelve new mom- ben to the teaching staff of the faculty marks the largest increase the faculty ever received in a single year. This large increase is a most encouraging feature of the lapid growth which has taken place in the college in the last few years, and it is entirely In har- mony with the increase In the number of atudents, buildings, and eijuipment. The new faculty mem- bers are as follows: Dean Allan R.

As a nucleus for his team Coach McAvoy had H. Weldin at full-back, E. Wilson at tackle, Fidance, captain, at quarterback, and W. S. Fitzpatrick at end. In addition to these men a squad of about thirty reported, including many former scrubs. From all indications it looked as if Coach was going to have a very difficult problem in developing a winning combination. Several of the new men, however, developed rapidly, and aided materially in rounding out a team which excelled in defensive work as well as offensive. The following statistics give evidence of the team ' s good work. The first contest was staged with Pennsylvania Military Academy, at Chester. It was feared that our team, being comprised mostly of new men, would be rather nervous and uncertain in the first game. The doubts proved groundless, however, for Delaware, by their driving attack, swept away their veteran opponents by the score of 21-0. The team worked like a machine, and no fault whatever could be found with the exhibition. Clancy at end, and Selby at half-back, both new men, put up a great game of football. " Ernie " Wilson, " Herb " Weldin, and Captain Fidance played a steady and consistent game. Almost on top of the opening victory came the battle with Haverford. This game was undoubtedly the triumph of the year. While the team did not suc- ceed in crossing the opponents ' goal line, it was equally strong on the defense, [167] and the score resulted in a scoreless tie. From a glance one would not think that the team had accomplished such a great feat, but when we con- sider that Delaware had been playing Haverford annually for a great number of years, and had been defeated every year since 1896, we are forced to admit that the result was almost as good as a victory. Never has a Delaware team played a better brand of football. The whole team fought with a spirit and determination which their heavier opponents could not overcome. No one man can be given the credit for the brilliant result. The game was void of fumbles and was filled with thrills from the beginning until the final whistle was blown. Haverford ' s team was one of the best and most experienced in the history of that college. This same team defeated Swarthmore later in the season. Here ' s hoping for a victory next time! On the following Saturday the team went to Stevens and returned with a triumph almost equal to the Haverford game. Score, Delaware 5, Stevens 0. " Ernie " Wilson netted three points, and two more were added when Fitzpatrick tackled Steven ' s full-back behind the line, for a safety. Delaware lost several good opportunities to score. Loose picked up a fumbled ball and ran fifty yards before he was tackled. Clancy and Weldin pulled off several long forward passes, averaging about thirty yards each. Stevens ' line held at critical times, however, and the Blue and Gold was unable to score a t ouchdown. The victory was a hard-earned one and the boys undoubtedly deserved the decision. In the Western Maryland, Dickinson, and Mt. St. Mary ' s games, the team did not play up to its usual standard and was defeated by the scores 16-0, 22-0, and 19-7, respectively. In the first and last of these three games Delaware lacked aggressiveness, and failed to play real football until it was too late. At Dickinson, the team was greatly outweighed, and as the game was played on a muddy field, the Delaware boys could gain little ground against their heavy opponents. In both the St. John ' s and the Gallaudet games the team came back strong and chalked up 14-0, and 13-6 victories. The scores of both of these games are close and indicate the uncertainty of the outcome. In the former game [168] Weldin and Fidance, and Marston of the scrubs, played exceptionally well. The Gallaudet game was rather loosely played but hard fought. A forward pass, Weldin to Clancy, gave the home team their first score. Weldin ' s touch- down in the third quarter raised the total to 13. Gallaudet played her best football of the afternoon in the last period. In this quarter she scored her only touchdown and threatened a dangerous rally. Delaware ' s line held, how- ever, and the game was won. During the latter part of the season the team was handicapped somewhat by the absence of Aschenback at tackle, and Lauritsen at guard. The season, as a whole, was a very creditable one. Of the eight games scheduled, four were won, three lost and one tied. The victory over Stevens and the tying of Haver- ford overbalanced the loss of three other games, which loss can be attrib- uted mainly to over-confidence. The team lost one man by graduation, and a great season is looked for- ward to next year. " Ernie " Wilson, who has played right tackle for three years, has been elected captain. Boiighing up ' ' Mike ' ' ! [169] BASKET BALL The basketball season of last year was most assuredly a successful one. Delaware was victorious over such teams as George Washington University, Susquehanna University, and Richmond College. We also had the honor of being the only team to defeat William and Mary on her home floor. Two of our defeats, Swarthmore and Randolph-Macon, were so unusually close that the games were not decided until the referee ' s whistle blew, ending them. The squad reported for practice on January 3rd. There were twenty- five men, all of whom were likely candidates. Four men from the previous year ' s Varsity and five men from the previous year ' s scrub team were among this number. The rest of the squad was composed of high school and class team stars. From this squad, capable Varsity and scrub teams were organized. After two weeks ' practice. Coach had rounded his new Varsity into good shape and was prepared for the first game. This game which was with Baltimore " Polly, " only served as a tryout for Coach ' s team. However, the team stood the test and won by the score of 43-16. The team passed well and, at all times, their team was superior to that of their opponents. The next game was with Philadelphia College of Pharmacy. This game, too, was but a stepping stone to larger ones. The score was 31-8 in Delaware ' s favor. Almost the entire scrub team played a large part of this game. The next game was that with P. M. C. Mid-years, with all their disastrous effects, had intervened between this and the previous game. The team was out of practice and lost 36-30. After a hard week ' s practice, we met Swarth- more on February 5th. They played a good game and, having the lead from start to finish, won by the score, 28-17. The next event of the season was when Manager Bounds yelled, " All aboard for the Southern trip. " Seven players. Manager Bounds, and Coach piled aboard the train. The first stop was at the historic town of Williamsburg. Here we defeated William and Mary by the score of 37-33. Then at Richmond we outstripped Richmond College to the tune of 29-14. The last stop was Randolph-Macon, where we were defeated 22-19. On returning home, we tackled Drexel and licked them 35-15. George Washington, our next opponent, was nosed out of victory 19-15. This was a fast game. The team found its pace and showed Susquehanna up by the score, 42-22. Many victories caused a slump in the playing and we lost to St. John ' s 44-26. [170] The baseball season at " old Delaware " last year was unsuccessful. We won four out of eleven games. We seemed to have good material, but at no time did the team appear as a good winning combination. We had six of the previous year Varsity men, and the Freshman class was reported to have several baseball men. During the winter, the baseball players and fans sat in front of the open fireplace and promised, predicted, and prophesied. When the season started, neither the old Varsity men or the much tooted Freshmen came up to top notch form. After the first few games, our Coach realized that his best team consisted of our pitchers and nine hitless wonders. These facts explain the cause of our defeats. On account of the continuous cold weather, the first game with Baltimore " Polly ' was cancelled. The next game with P. M. C. resulted in the first disaster for Delaware. After scoring nine runs in the first two innings, Dela- ware became lazy and careless and allowed P. M. C. to beat them out 90-9. The next game with Drexel was a reversal of the P. M. C. game, and Delaware easily won by the score of 6-1. The Easter holidays then interrupted. The University of North Carolina game was the first after the Easter holi- days. The Blue and Gold played a good game, but they were forced to submit to the better team. The North Carolina team was the best that played on our field and the Delaware boys deserve credit for putting up such a good game. Rock Hill handed Delaware the next set-back. The Marylanders defeated our boys by the score of 6-1 after our team had led for eight innings. St. John ' s were our next opponents and victors. They beat us in a close and hard fought game by the score 8-6. Here, again, our opponents beat us in the last inning. At this stage of the game. Coach saw that his original team was not up to standard. He tried Captain Doherty at first instead of short stop and Morris Pierson behind the bat. Taggart was placed at short stop, " Mike " O ' Daniel and Ferguson were put in the outfield. This new combination staged a come- back by defeating Rock Hill 3-1. However, this success could not last long. Mt. St. Mary ' s came to Newark with a bunch of natural players. They beat us 11-3. Bucknell followed this " lead with a right to the face " by beating us 10-0. Both of these teams were fast and hard hitters. Western Maryland [171] played us a sensational game and Delaware only succeeded in beating them in the ninth inning. The next game with Rutgers was a real one. Hock only allowed Rutgers three hits, but they beat us by a score of 2 to 1. The team closed its season by a victory over Haverford of 5-2. This was an interesting game but it did not hold the interest of such games as the Western Maryland and Rutgers. It looked as though we had a world of material at the beginning of the year but it just seemed to fade away again. " Doc " Doherty, our captain, is one of the best all-around players that Delaware has ever had. " Don " Horsey is another fast infielder. Other good players were on the team but there seem- ed to be some friction in the team work. The unsuccessful season was due in a large measure to the fact that at no time did we have a well rounded team. Varsity Baseball Team [172] JTRAeKi Captain Steele The 1915 and the 1916 seasons of track have started a new era in this branch of sport with the rest of the college. There has been more progress in track in the lart two years than there has been in the ten previous years. Part of this improvement has been due to the opening of the new athletic field and the other part has been due to the new track coach. The standard of the sport has been raised 100 percent. The mile relay team which competed at the University of Pennsylvania relays was picked from a large enthusiastic crowd. The candidates worked hard for a job and we believe that their efforts brought about the success of the team.- Crockett, Steele, Marshall, and Craig were chosen, with Fitzpatrick as a substitute. The team ran a splendid race and finished second to the fast Mary- land Agricultural College. The first dual meet was held at Allentown with the Muhlen- burg team. Altho Delaware was defeated, we made a good show- ing. Crockett, the star hurdler, was out of the meet on account of a pulled tendon. This injury and our weakness in the weight events was responsible for our showing. The next meet was that between the classes in which the Freshmen carried away the honors. The next meet was with Drexel. Delaware ' s stars easily won by the score of 69 to 30. Our team was particularly good in the sprints. Steele won the quarter and half mile. G. Wilson and Marconetti (both Freshmen) brought down first places. Delaware lost the next and last meet. We were weak in the field events and could not overcome this lead in the sprints. Gettysburg, our last opponent, had a dandy team and they justly deserved victory. Both of their weight men were good and they showed it in the total number of points. The most exciting race of the year was when Steele set out to lower the half-mile record and Fitzpatrick set out after Steele. It was certainly a pretty race. They finished neck and neck but Fitzpatrick was just a hair ahead. He broke the record by a fraction of a second. Too much credit cannot be given to Coach Keyes. He had fair material to Crockett breaking low hurdles record [173] work with, but he developed it in an admirable man- ner. The success of the track team is second only to the successes of the football team. More care should be given to this sport and a higher point of development will be attained. At this writing the prospects for the track team of 1917 are unusually bright. A large squad of men are working hard under the careful coaching of Keyes. Fitzpatrick, Steele, Dave Crockett, and Craig are running low figures on the quarter mile. Marston and Crockett are showing their usual form on the hurdles. McDonnell is breaking all previous records in pole vault, and is sure of winning many honors for Delaware in this event. Harry Loose, " Ernie " Wilson, and Harry Alexander are improv- ing rapidly in the discus. " Ernie " Wilson, Harry Loose, Williams, and Morris Mitchell are showing good form in the shot put. With such men to pick from and with the interest all are showing in the work, it is expected that Coach Keyes will develop a strong squad. The meets as scheduled for the 1917 season are: The University of Pennsyl- vania Relays, Maryland State College, Drexel Institute, Inter-scholastic Field and Track Meet, Middle States Track Meet, Swarthmore, Franklin and Mar- shall, Lehigh, and Muhlenburg.

[178] Class Athletics Basketball The class of 1918 has certainly been successful in basketball. They were the runners-up in their Freshman year and the real champions the next. In our Freshman year, we met the Sophs for the opening game of the inter- class basketball series. The Sophs were over-confident and greatly surprised when the score ran up to 20-4 in our favor. Our next foes were the Juniors. Their team was composed of four Varsity men and a scrub man. This com- bination made a good class team, and we were not ashamed to accept a defeat of 17-4. In our Sophomore year, we beat the Freshies by the score of 10-4. This was mainly due to our excellent passing and general team work. The Juniors had a fast, rough bunch, but they failed to work together and we were made champions of the college by the final score of 7-3. Baseball The class of 1918 did not stop at the winning of the college basketball championship. She set right in and practiced hard for the baseball champion- ship games. When the gong sounded our team was in fine shape. We entered the game with plenty of " pep " and got the start on our opponents. We took advantage of their mistakes and tried to make as few as we could ourselves. The result was that we walloped the Freshmen. The Juniors had beaten the Seniors. When we lined up for the final game, we were pretty well matched [179] off. The first few innings were fast and close. Finally the strain was too much for the Junior team and they went to pieces. We took advantage of the opportunity and scored enough to beat them. The game was featured by four home runs. This gave us our second college championship that year. Football Wh-r-r-r!! went the whistle. The pigskin oval turned over and over as it sailed thru the air. The eager Freshies rushed down upon the determined Sophs. The Sophs ' fullback caught the ball and started back up the field behind his flying wedge of interference. When three Freshies drove at the interference and a fourth downed the man with the ball, the first play of the Freshman-Sophomore game was over. Time and time again the Sophs drove Crawford, their battering ram, at the opposing line, but the Freshies stood like Spartans. Finally a fumble by Fidance and a quick recovery by Freshman Meyers resulted in the only touchdown of that hard-fought game. In the following year, as Sophomores, the class of 1918 followed the pre- cedent of the preceding Sophomore class and gave way to the Freshmen by a score of 13-0. Thus, with a hard-fought victory and one defeat, the football team of the class of 1918 passed out of existence. L180] UOKES Truss — " Evans, there is a fly on the end of your nose. " " Eaglebeak " Evans — " Is there? Well, brush it off; you are nearer than I. " Dr. Harter (in Physics class) — " Archimedes, er — you say, er — discovered specific gravity on getting into his bath; er — why had the principle never oc- curred to him before?

Johnnie announced his desire to see the " Sea Serpent " in a side show. " Pop, " he begged, " give me a penny for to see the ' Sea Serpent ' ? " " Vasteful poy, " exclaimed Sol, " vanting to pay a penny for to see a Sea Serpent. Here ' s a magnifying glass. Go and find a vorm. " Editor-in-Chief Horsey — " Do you support the Review? " Freshman — " I didn ' t know I had to; it has a staff. " Wheeler (applying for a position during the summer vacation) — " Is there an opening here for a bright, energetic, young man? " Employer — " Yes, and close it when you go out. " Father of Johnnie Hall, speaking in Chapel — " Gentlemen, I have a special interest in Delaware College. " Freshie, to friend — " I wonder what it is? " Friend to Freshie — " Gink! Recitation Hall was named after him. " On the second day of College a Freshman reported to the Matron of the Infirmary. " Miss Beck, " he said, " I ' m sick. " Miss B.— " What ' s wrong? " Freshie — " Home sick. " Miss B. (through habit) — " Paint it with iodine. " Freshie — " What would you do if you were I?

" Wheeler — " Yep, I was. Someway that never entered my mind. " " Bob " Goldey (escaping from Dr. Dunlevy ' s office) — " Ha, I fooled that dentist all right. Two teeth needed filling and he only found one. " Dr. Reed has a friend who owns an immense chicken farm. The friend had always promised to send " Doc " a fowl. One day a big rooster weighing some seven pounds arrived from his friend. The chicken was duly admired, cooked, eaten, and pronounced excellent by the Reed family. Shortly afterwards, however, " Doc " was somewhat upset by a letter re- ceived from the same friend. It read: " Some days ago I sent you a rooster. Will you kindly oblige me by having the same analysed, and letting me know as soon as possible of what disease it died? " Things which went with the class of 1916: " Shunt wound " ; " Spats " Hills; " Eagle-eye " Lintner; Civil Six; Cribbing; " Fuzzy-lipped " Sehrt; College at 8.50. [Note: The " Lieut.

" D.-avid C.rrockett — " Vacuum pressure, I guess. " Mr. Pollard — " Mr. Smith, can you tell me what an egg is? " " Chet " — " An egg is a chicken not yet. " Freshie (buying a suit from Sol Wilson) — " Sol, this suit don ' t fit. " Sol — " The suit iss aid right; it is you dat iss ouid ov shape. " Carswell (at Review Board meeting) — " Well, Horsey, I ' ve written four columns of Newark ' s water supply in relation to the typhoid epidemic. " Horsey — " Boil it down, will you? " Dr. Greenfield was explaning " the order of succession to the throne " in Freshman History. " Doc " — " If the King dies who takes his place? " Mr. Ready Back Row — " The Queen. " " Doc " — " Right. Now if the Queen dies who is next in rank? " The same again — " The Jack. " One week, it seems, Fitzpatrick was very unfortunate in not having his laundry returned to him by his old negro laundress. It also happened the [183] same week, that while out for a short run in his abbreviated track suit, he passed by the home of his dusky washerwoman. No sooner had he reached the gym than he heard his laundress shouting: " For de Lawd ' s sake, won ' t you all tell Marse Fitzpatrick not to go out no moh ' till I kin git his close round to him? " There was a baseball game between the K. A ' s. and Omega Alpha ' s on the lot back of their houses. Stephens knocked the ball into the garden of a near- by negro ' s home. From the ramshackety house a negro woman rushed forth, picked up the ball, and returned to the hut. Then Saylor, who was umpire, shouted, " Game called on account of dark- ness. " Excerpt from a Freshman ' s theme: Fiercely on tore the maddened steed!! ! Our hero was powerless to stop him — and now the cavernous Clifton cliff was but a few yards further. Suddenly the rider gave a jolly laugh. " It ' s only a bluff, " he said. It was at the Junior Promenade. Several couples were engaged in a gen- eral conversation. This was Meyer ' s first dance and the fellows were trying to make him join in the fun. Finally he made the following allusion to one of the girls present: " You ought to have seen Plumley the other night when he called on Kitty. I tell you he looked fine, a-sitting up alongs ide of her with his arm — " " Buzz! " cried several, trying to avert an apparent social blunder. " Well so he did, " insisted Buzz " He had his arm — " " Yes, it ' s a very pleasant evening, " said Plumley. " Why I was just going to say he had his army clothes on. What ' s the matter? " [184] Life and Letters of Lady Eglantine (Being an extract from " Who ' s Who in America and Why " ). Lady Eglantine is the first female of the " chicken " type to attain distinction through that volume. We quote: " Lady Eglantine (Some Chicken), born April 10, 1914; died August 6, 1916. Her grace and beauty had long been a matter of world-wide comment, but her true value was not known until she broke the world ' s record for gg laying. This was a hard year for her, as she laid three hundred and fourteen eggs in three hundred and sixty five days. At the expiration of the year she was taken to New York to recuperate, where she was entertained at one of the largest hotels. Here, with pen in claw. Lady Eglantine wrote her full name. It is from this incident that we get the expres- sion Hen Scratch. Both she and her mate died on the same day of heat prostration. They are survived by several hundred young chickens. Her tombstone bears the touching motto: " She here laid herself away, " [185] Rir.

Nobody except Mitchell have any difficulties? Then I assume he was the only one who studied the lesson. " Pay attention, Hill, you ' ll be needing this before long. " Well now, lets see, where were we? Oh right here, at this point x. Now we found this point to be the P-D-Q projection of N-I-X, which you remember was proved by the inside-out triangles method to be the perpendicular oblique from the point y. ' Zat clear? You see that, Hoey, do you not? " Litz (interested) — " Say that over again, will you, Fessor? " " Well then, once more. This point x, Litz, you see how we get that? All right. Now resolve this top line, Z-I-P, through an angle equal to the one we couldn ' t find awhile ago, until it is parallel to these three points. And they are precisely the same intersections that I explained about, five weeks before Christmas. Does everyone see that? Well now, we assumed that these three points, B-U-L, were not in the same straight line, and since this is so, you can not move the line parallel to them. Therefore we have proved the wrong triangle to be right. Any questions? " Hoey — " Fessor, do you mean that ' cause you can ' t turn that line parallel above your head, what we thought to be wrong must be true? " " Zackly! Zackly! " " Huh, huh; well, Knowles, did you have any trouble with the problems for today? " " No, sir, Doctor. They didn ' t bother me at all. " " Well I take it, huh, huh, that the class got them all right then. " Clark Hill — " Doctor I couldn ' t quite get that third one. Something about the focus of the comet ' s orbit. " Doctor — " Huh, huh. You see, Mr. Hill, a comet ' s orbit is a parabola with the sun at the focus. Well now, a parabola, you know what a parabola is. That is simply the curve that a street car makes in going round the corner. I was just reading in one of the scientific journals that the cars in Washington turn corners on the hypocycloid of four cusps curve. Er, huh, huh, Mr. Berk- man, pay attention. You will wish that you knew about this when the ex- aminations come. Well, this curve is used on account of the fact that there are no overhead wires in Washington. You know, or some of you at least, that it is believed by some scientists that overhead wires will eventually be done away with all together. Mr. Lauritsen, can you tell us what a hypocy- cloidal is? " « ,-«„ „.„v, " Skutch " (in whisper to " Ernie " ) — " Damned if I ever heard of that thing. ' J J ' Is it the name of a car? (Aloud) Why, well Doctor, isn ' t that the one — er, " Z well— " " Yes, yes, Mr. Lauritsen, I think you understand that all right. Why, [187] that ' s the curve that Galileo used in the telescope when he discovered the moons of Jupiter. Huh, huh, er, Mr. Berkman, if you are not interested in this work I ' d rather that you go out; you know, I ' m not talking for my own amusement. Well, previous to this time people didn ' t know there was any moonlight on Jupiter. " Huh, huh, er, it seems wonderful to us that astrologers can predict such things. You know records have been kept since the time of the Ptolemies. You know that they gathered around them a great number of scientists, scientists, huh, they called themselves scientists — huh, er, Mr. Berkman take your feet down from that chair. We don ' t want to get too comfortable in here. Well, er, where was I, oh er, well you know er, they are the men who discovered the design of the pyramids. Er, it ' s found that they are hollow on the inside where the old kings are buried. " Todd (entering two minutes before time for the bell) — " Doctor, did you get me? " Doctor — " Yes, Mr. Todd. They told me you were coming. " Mr. Witsil, you ' ve read about the pyramids, haven ' t you? Well now, to get back to the lesson. You wanted to know about that problem. Oh, you ' ll have no trouble with that. Did some one hear the bell? Well, I ' ll excuse the class anyway, for I have a class on at the Women ' s College.

With new buildings, an extended and improved campus, an enlarged faculty, and additional courses, it stands on the threshold of greater useful- ness to the people of the State. Three new buildings will be finished and ready for use at the opening of the next collegiate year. They are a scientific building. Wo lf Hall, to cost $280,000; a student building to serve as a commons or dining hall, and to contain rooms for all student organizations, such as the Review editoral board, the college band, the glee club, and the Y. M. C. A.; and a dormitory for Freshmen. The new campus, to be known as " The Green, " will also be completed during the coming spring and summer " . The Faculty has already been increased and strengthened this year by several professors and in- structors. In addition to these, men to teach business administration and physics will be secured before next fall. Neiv departments have been organized or pro- vided for in the Training of Teachers and in Business Administration. The purpose of the first department is to prepare men to become teachers and principals of high schools. The second department will give an in- sight into modern business methods and equip men to take responsible positions in the business world. Never before has Delaware College been so well prepared to do efficiently the work expected of it; never before has it to such a high degree merited the confidence and respect of the people of our common- wealth.
