Young ml ACUITY ,afa». BLUE HEN- - Dr. Walter Hullihen The University Delaware College, founded in 1833, and the ' omen ' s College of Dela- ware, founded in 1913, with their several schools and departments, by an Act of the Ninety-eighth General Assembly of the State of Delaware, signed by Governor Denney on March 28, 1921, have been made the University of Delaware. Following the established usage of American commonwealths Dela- ware has given to the colleges comprising its public system of higher education the title of State University. Eight m ' BLUE HEN D The General Assembly has properly decided that the name " college " is not appropriate for a group of colleges and schools embracing general, technical, professional and graduate education for men and women ; and in changing the name to the " University of Delaware " has laid the broad foundation upon which the State may build by the addition in years to come of such new departments as the needs of the people of Delaware may require. The change which has been made is in a certain sense only a change of name. And yet it is, from another point of view, something more than that. We have the same group of schools and colleges and departments, but in the new name we experience a new sense of unity and are quickened by a fresh consciousness of growth and power and by the inspiration of a broader purpose. The new name lends an added dignity to the institution, and should prove a challenge — to faculty and students alike — to prove worthy of that added dignity; a challenge, to continue to cherish the honorable traditions of more than fourscore years as a " college " and to hold fast to the old ideals of sincerity and scholarship, and at the same time to strive to realize the larger vision and the wider outlook of the " university.

BLUE HEN- f ' i ' The Faculty If we " had a mind to " we could turn out a " made to order " eulogy upon the merits of our " beloved faculty. " We could garnish the com- position with the old familiar archaic phraseology. W ' e could even address our " respected professors " as " sapi- ent pedagogues. " But " professor " sa- vours of whiskers and a bald head. and pedagogue is only used to fill up space in the Encyclopaedia Brit- tanica. Furthermore, " made to order " poems are only produced by poet laureates and Walt Mason; they are not successful. ■hat a travesty upon our friend- ship for " Gimpty " and Bugs " and " Dinny " and " Froggy " to place them, with one grand, dramatic gesture, upon the heights of Olympus! The transition would be too abrupt even for the most imaginative student among us ; furthermore, the " sapient pedagogues " themselves no doubt would be ill-content with exigencies of a lonely sojourn upon a classical and barren mountain-top. After all, the " man ' s the man, " and so we present them here ; the Faculty, our pals. Eleven ,a§)ai. BLUE HEN Edward Laurence SxMITh Dean Smith was born on March 19. 1877, at Newark, Delaware.

WALTER HULLIHEN President of the College Delaware College, founded in 183?. as Newark College, an institution privately owned and controlled, is now a State institution and forms the apex of the public school system of the State of Delaware. The United States Commissioner of Education is reported to have said that no institution in this country has larger possibilities of service and usefulness to its State than Delaware College. It is unique in being the only college in the State. As Dr. Vallandingham has aptly phrased it. " no other institution profits by its loss, loses by its gains. " It is unique and fortunate in its combination of Arts, Education, Agriculture, and Engineering in one institution, and in the possibility it has of touching every part of the State, not only thru the work done in Newark, but also thru its extension departments in arts, agriculture, vocational training and education. The early history of the College, like that of so many other higher institutions of learning in America, was one of many discouragements. For a quarter of a century, however, it did an important work not only for Delaware, but also for parts of Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey, and even more distant States, until, as result of a series of misfortunes, it was forced to close its doors in the spring of 1859. Eleven years later, the College was reopened, having been designated by act of thie State Legislature as beneficiary under an Act of Congress apportioning to each of the several States large areas of public lands to form the basis of endowments for colleges which should include in their curriculum the teaching of agriculture, the mechanic arts, and military tactics, without excluding other scientific and classical studies. The College, thus reorganized in 1870 under combined private and State owmership, so continued until 1913, when, according to the terms of an act of the State Legislature to re-incorporate it, Delaware College came into the sole possession of the State. The Board of Trustees now consists of thirty-two members, including the Governor of the State, the President of the College, the Master of the State Grange, and the President of the State Board of Education, who are members, ex-officio, with twenty-eight other members, eight of whom are appointees of the Governor. In 1913 the College for Women was founded, affiliated with Delaware College, having the same president and board of trustees and in a large measure the same faculty, but entirely separate in buildings, classes, and student organization. Fifty-five ,afai. BLUE HEN- f ' The Infirmary GROUNDS AND BUILDINGS Extensive additions have recently been made to the grounds and build- ings of the institution. The buildings of the Women ' s College are located on a tract of 19 acres about three-eighths of a mile from " Old College, " the original and central building of the earlier college. In 1915 all the intervening land was purchased for the College by Mr. Pierre S. duPont. This gives it a beautiful campus of 88 acres, with a score of excellent build- ings devoted to college purposes, right in the heart of Newark, affording ample space for future development. Sites have already been designated by the architects for additional buildings which will be erected from time to time in a well planned architectural scheme as they are needed. Frazer Field, the gift of several members of the Frazer family of Newark, affords excellent facilities for outdoor sports and games. Connected with the College and used for purposes of instruction and experimentation is the State Farm of 217 acres. The property of the College is worth ?1. 800,000. The annual income from all sources. Federal, State, endowment, and fees is $382,000. Apart from the National appropriations, the State has dealt liberally with the College in the past, having appropriated funds from time to time as they were needed for new buildings and the growing cost of maintaining and operating the institution. Fifty-six % .afas. BLUE HEN- I - SCOPE OF THE WORK OF INSTRUCTION The institution includes three distinct schools for men in addition to the several courses for women in the Women ' s College. It is a State uni- versity in every sense and includes the following schools : (I) School of Arts and Science The courses in the School of Arts and Science furnish a broad general training, preparatory to either business or professional life, with courses in Ancient and Modern literatures, the Sciences, Mathematics, Pedagogy, History, and Economics, leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science. (II) School of Engineering This school offers courses in Civil, Mechanical, Electrical and Chemical Engineering, leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Civil, Mechan- ical, Electrical, or Chemical Engineering, according to the course pursued. (III) School of Agriculture The courses in agriculture combine technical with cultural training and lead to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Agriculture. The work is planned for the preparation of men who desire to become farmers, teachers of agriculture, farm managers, investigators, or specialists in any of the various departments of agriculture. (IV) The Women ' s College The courses in the Women ' s College comprise the following: (a) Arts and Science — A four-years ' course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science, with instruction in the same departments as in the Men ' s College but with the addition of elective work in Music, Art, and Home Economics. (b) Education— A four-years ' course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Education, and a two-years ' course leading to a certificate entitling the holder to eligibility for appointment without examination to teaching positions in the public school system of the State. (c) Home Economics — A four-years ' course leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science in Home Economics. AGRICULTURAL EXTENSION WORK The Agricultural Extension work of the College is supported by an annual Federal appropriation known as the Smith-Lever fund which has to be offset by an equal State appropriation in order to meet the require- ments of the Federal law. The work is carried on largely by the County Agents, and County Club Leaders, one of each in every county of the State, and by a Home-Demonstration Agent, a woman trained in home adminis- tration, who spends all of her time in the field. Fifty-seven ,a§)ai. BLUE HEN° ' - ., -.mmsssms Residence Hall Science Hall Fifty-eight % jfas. BLUE HEN The function of the County Agent? and leaders is to keep the people of the State informed in regard to all of the recommendations of the College and of the U. S. Department of Agriculture relating to rural life and agricultural production ; to assist in the organization and holding of farm institutes and conferences ; to organize, stimulate, and direct the boys ' and girls ' clubs — corn growing clubs, canning clubs, needle-work clubs, stock- raising clubs — which in recent years have been so successful that Delaware boys and girls have won more than one championship in the National Meetings held in Springfield and Chicago ; and, finally, to keep the college in touch with the people of the State, to interpret its work to the people and make its results available to them, and in turn to advise the College of the needs of the State and of the ways in which it may help to meet those needs. A unique feature of the Summer School in Delaware is the fact that room, board, and transportation expenses of a student are paid by the State provided she has taught at least one year in the public schools of the State and declares her intention of continuing to teach in the State for at least the ensuing year. The average enrollment in the Summer School is about two hundred. The benefit to the school system of Delaware is worth many times its cost to the State. THE EXPERIMENT STATION AND FARM The value to a State of the work done by an Experiment Station can hardly be over-estimated. Some years ago in the State of Iowa, the corn crops had fallen off badly for several seasons. The matter was brought to the attention of the Experiment Station stafl " . By an extensive investi- gation they discovered that a large percentage of the seed planted by the farmers was infertile. The farmers were show n how to select only fertile seed for planting and the next year showed an increase in the corn crop amounting to several millions of dollars. The farmers of Delaware are receiving similar, if not so definitely recorded, benefits from their Experi- ment Station in all lines of production, resulting from the Station ' s experi- ments and recommendations in regard to peach and apple culture, alfalfa and wheat growing, soy-beans and forage crops, and in matters relating to animal husbandry. It is hard to estimate the commercial value of the Agricultural College and Experiment Station to the State of Delaware, but one of the leading agriculturists of the State has estimated that Delaware is richer by at least half a million dollars a year in increased production as a result of the work of the College and Station. Fifly-iiine jf%Q. BLUE HEN THE SUMMER SCHOOL FOR TEACHERS Not least important among the activities of Delaware College is the Summer School, established by act of Legislature in 1913. Each year there is held at the College a summer school Session of six weeks ' duration. This school is under the direction of the head of the Department of Education in the College and is essentially a teachers ' train- ing school. The work offered is primarily for the benefit of teachers of rural and elementarj ' schools and includes courses in the common school branches, methods of teaching, school management, etc. Several advanced courses are given for those who expect to teach in the High Schools of the State. OUTPUT Delaware College points with just pride to her long roll of illustrious alumni. A native of Connecticut, and a graduate of a New England uni- versity, once made the remark that it seemed to him marvelous that of the small number of men (77) who graduated during President Purnell ' s ad- ministration. 1S70-1SS.5. so many had attained so great a degree of eminence in public life. The graduates of later years are gi ing an equally good account of themselves in eveiy field of human endeavor. Engineers gradu- ated from Delaware College are holding responsible positions all over the United States; are developing the resources of South America; and are being sent on important missions to Europe. Graduates of the College of Art5 who later studied law or medicine or went into commercial life are scattered over the country and are occupy- ing positions of dignity and influence in their several communities. Men from the Agricultural College are equally prominent as agriculturists, teachers of agriculture, and as agi ' icultural investigators. The first graduates of the Women ' s College went out only a few years ago, but many of them are now filling responsible teaching and administra- tive positions, and all are helping their State to interpret the new and difficult problems of a changing social order in the light of a broader vision and a clearer understanding gained from their college training. RECENT GROWTH AND INCREASED COST OF OPERATION During the past two years the growth of all the State institutions of higher learning in the United States has been phenomenally rapid. Sixty . w. BLUE HEN Delaware has been no exception to the rule ; in fact, its gro i;h has probably equalled that of any other similar institution in the country. The Women ' s College since 1918 has increased in numbers a little more than lOO r, the men ' s departments have increased nearly 507 in the same time. There are now 178 women and 300 men, without counting the 80 ex-service men taking vocational training in Agriculture. This remarkable growth is matter for congratulation and warrants high hopes for the continued growth and usefulness of the institution. At the same time it has presented a serious problem to the Trustees. With the increasing number of students has come the demand for more equip- ment, a larger staff of instructors, and a greater diversity of courses. The advancing cost of living, and the national shortage of college teachers, has made necessary increases in the salary budget, which, added to other increases, has piled up a considerable deficit in the past two years, and more than doubled the amount which the State must appropriate in order to enable the institution to continue on its present program. It is not likely that the State will refuse to make the necessary appro- priation. Other States are finding themselves in exactly the same situation. All over America in the past two years the cost of education and the number of young people demanding a college education has increased enormously, and everywhere the States are meeting the increased cost. The American people since the war are more than ever convinced of the soundness of their educational system and there is now not a State in the Union which is not supporting a State College or University as the third and final stage of the public educational program. In very few States is the cost per student to the State so low as in Delaware. Most of the States operate separately, the university, the agri- cultural and mechanical college, and the normal college, with duplication of overhead expenses, basic courses, and laboratories. By combining all of these at one place Delaware secures equal results at a much smaller per capita outlay than other States. Delaware College and the Women ' s College have earned the admira- tion and approval of the people of the State for the work they have done and should receive the support necessary for continuing and strengthening that work.

BLUE HEK-sf The Installation, J 920 Sixty-three %fl .a a®. BLUE HEN - l THE INSTALLATION OF DR. HULLIHEN The installation of Dr. Walter Hullihen as president of Delaware Col- lege took place in November, 1920, and was marked by ven- impressive ceremonies in front of Old College. The morning was largely occupied with e.xchanging greetings on the part of those present for the ceremonies, and it was not until shortly after 12 o ' clock that the actual exercises began. Then the entire group met on the green in front of Wolf Hall and formed the academic procession. Here the procession was formed including the various units connected with the College, with the least important unit leading, and each successive unit in importance following at close intervals. At a given signal, the procession moved slowly forward and proceeded to the campus adjoining Old College. Henry B. Thompson, the president of the Board of Trustees presided, and included among the speakers of the day were Bishop Cook, Dean Winifred Robinson, and Dr. E. N. Vallandigham. The substance of the speeches was a Bigger and Better Delaware and by what means it could best be obtained. Following these inspiring speeches by prominent Delawareans, the formal installation of Dr. Hullihen as president of Delaware College took place. This part of the day ' s program was very impressive, and after Jlr. Thompson had bestowed all the powers of the office, together with its numerous duties and responsibilities, he gave him the key of the College, a symbol of our joint responsibility as children of Delaware, that none enter here unprepared or depart hence unfitted. Mr. Thompson added : " Having full confidence that your powers will be exercised with wisdom, courage and patience, and your duties performed with fidelity, zeal and efficiency, and pledging you the support, loyalty and co-operation of the trustees, the faculty, the alumni, the students, we look forward hopefully to a realization of the high aims entertained for the upbuilding of this institution of learning for the young men and young women of the State of Delaware. " Following the installation ceremony President Walter Hullihen delivered his inaugural address. He duly accepted the honor bestowed upon him, and after tracing the development of the institution, the aims, and our future possibilities, he pledged himself to carry on the work of his predecessors and plead with those present, " to hold fast to the spiritual ideals, the ideals of righteousness and ai ' dent search for the truth, the ideal of fraternity and semice, the ideal of unselfishness and sacrifice which must permeate the life and teaching of all our departments if we are to succeed in accomplishing the work for which this institution was founded. " Sixty-four . w, BLUE HEN-sf ' i ' History of Class of 192 1 ' T HE Thinker sat with his gaze steadily fixed upon the ciystal ball before him. All evening he had been meditating upon his college days, and now, with the heavy incense trailing upward from the tall censers and seeming to soften the deep shadows cast by the concealed lights, he was trying to call back the pictures of his earlier life. Suddenly the clouds which had hitherto concealed the ball were driven away and scattered as if by a brisk breeze, and the Thinker realized that the pictures which were unfolding before him were active duplications of the memories which he carried printed indelibly in his mind. He saw his class, the class of 1921, entering the portals of Old Dela- ware, and he watched with keen delight as the pictures unfolded them- selves. He saw his class start right in to trounce the Sophs in the memor- able " Battle of Quality Hill, " and there was not a man of ' 21 on the bottom when the smoke cleared away. Then there was the great football game in which the Sophs were smothered 20-0, the worst beating ever adminis- tered in a class game. In varsity football he saw McCaughan, Ale.xander and Tonkin giving splendid service, while Joe Wilson broke track records almost every time he ran. Basketball was simply a romp for our class, and the Thinker saw ' 21 go through the whole series without suffering a defeat. The saddest picture recalled was the death of Lee Roach who, though lost to us forever, will never be absent from our memories. The .second .set of pictures showed war in reality, and the Thinker saw his class-mates Alexander, Boggs, Young, and Madden nobly taking their part in the great World War. ' hen the College pictures did begin to appear again, the Thinker saw with a smile the one-sided " Egg Fight of Recitation Hall, " and the hose fights upon the cam.pus. Once more he saw his class .soundly trounce their enemies, the Fresh, and scamper home once more with the basketball championship. The prowess of the class was so pronounced that he saw them force conclusions in the original bag rush, and defeat their opponents two bags to one. McCaughan and Ale.xander were leading lights this year upon both varsity football and basketball teams. The recalling of the class po.ster caused the Thinker to smile as he remembered the astonishment of the natives of the neighboring towns when the brilliant posters met their astonished gaze early one spring morning. The Fresh tried to have a theatre party that year, but were forced to take a squad of police along for protection. To such heights had the fame of ' 21 risen. In the pictures of the Junior year the Thinker saw the class relax, as one who knows when its work is well done. He saw the originality of the class once more demon.strated when they held the highly successful Junior Prom at the Hotel du Pont in Wilmington. But just to remind the observer Sixty-seven 1 .ifa®. BLUE HEN- ? ' that ' 21 could still be victorious in anything it undertook, the Thinker saw the picture of another successful class basketball season with the cham- pionship won for the third time. He saw Alexander and McCaughan on the varsity basketball team ; McCaughan playing varsity football, with " Jimmy " Horty piloting the tennis team through a successful season. But the pictures of the Senior year called back the most pleasant memories, for he saw that glorious banquet at the Lambros and the the- atre party. Once more class championship in basketball, an event that has never been accomplished before — champions for four years in succession. He watched McCaughan pilot the victorious varsity football team, while Alexander did the same thing for basketball. Dorse Donoho was in the leading position for baseball, with Wilson for track, and Horty for tennis. He saw all the sports loyally supported by ' 21 men, while the men who did not go out for athletics set an enviable record in scholastic standards. The pictures were all true, and as the Thinker saw a rainbow appear in all its glory in the crystal ball, he had to acknowledge that it was truly symbolical. For there was offer of great promise in the class of 1921, and what had already been accomplished in College was merely preparatory to the great things that the members of the class of 21 would do in life. They had left a glorious record, but the future gave promise of even better things. Sixty-eiffht m rn O x %%, BLUE HEN CLASS OFFICERS President George H. Madden Vice-President J.

BLUE HEN History of Class of 1 922 T HE class of 1922 is a war-time product, and during its years in Dela- - - ware has been noted for its fighting qualities. This aggressive spirit accounts for the large number of successes in th e class-rooms, on the athletic field, in the inter-class games, and in the inter-class fights. Our class numbered 140 in September of 1918 — our Freshman year. At that time we were a part of the S. A. T. C, and our interests wei-e centered about things military. With the breaking up of this organization on December 13, our interests were turned to the problems of civil and college activity. Although most of our time was to be spent in the class- room and in the study-hall, still many of our number have won highest honors in athletics and other school activities. In basketball the class of ' 22 has given to the varsity Gray Carter and Muncy Keith. In football, Stewart, Carter, Rothrock, and De Luca are from our numbers. Rothrock, Dantz, Carll, Wilson, and G. Carter have won berths on the varsity baseball team. Many of the letter men in track are from the class of ' 22. In the inter-class series of our Freshman year we finished second in basketball ; and in base- ball and track we set a pace too hot for our rivals to maintain, and, as a result, we carried off " first honors in each of these events. The successful track team was under the leadership of Christfield, and the baseball team was headed by Burbage. In the inter-class fights we showed our fighting ability when odds were against us. Although we were outweighed, we made a very creditable showing in the bag rush. Before the close of this year, our numbers were reduced from 140 to 66, as many left after the breaking up of the Students ' Army Training Corps. J. E. Wilson, better known as " Skeet, " was our leader during this, our Sophomore year, and under his guidance we have continued our record. As per the usual custom, the duty of entertaining the newly arrived Freshies fell upon our shoulders, and we proceeded to show them about as they arrived. The first act was to introduce them to some of the charm- ing scenery of New Castle County. A nice little walk out to the neighbor- hood of Cooch ' s Bridge and to other points of interest helped matters a lot. Then " Skeet " got a letter from our classmates at the Women ' s Col- lege, in which they asked that some of the Freshies be brought down for their inspection. A number of the " rats " were selected as being fair examples. The.se were collected one evening and taken down for inspec- tion. Under the gentle persuasion of their Sophomore advisers, the " rats " went through their performances in an obedient, docile, becoming manner. After this event, the Freshmen were left to themselves until May 8, when they were again given an entertainment as a farewell from the Sopho- mores. One Hundred Three .a a®. BLUE HEN- ' I ' On this date the Freshies awoke from their " sweet dreams of peace " to find all Newark placarded with Sophomore posters. Later in the day thev were to be further burdened with the news that these posters and numerals were to be found anywhere in the territoiy from Dover to Swarthmore College, and from Elkton to Wilmington. The large " 22 banner of ours remained undisturbed on the flag pole for three whole days, which is a record around these parts. The " Vigilant Guard " of the Freshies proved to be soft pickings for us. This year the high standard in our studies has been maintained, and the old jinx " Flunk " has had few friends in the ranks of ' 22. In athletics we maintain, and in many respects surpass, the records of our first year. " Joe " Rothrock and " Dutch " Carll continue to be the mainstays in the box, with G. Carter on the receiving end. Our represen- tation on the varsity basketball team has been increased by the addition of Frankie Wills. G. Carter is the hold-over from last year. In football, Helton and Kavanaugh each won his varsity letter. Harmer is one of the mainstays of the track team. " Tom " McDonnell, assisted by " Hop " Geoghegan, has the last say in any argument about pole vaulting. We point with pride at these records held by members of the class of 1922 : Harmer holds the record in the 440-yard dash at 51 3 5. and in the 880- yard dash at 2.04; McDonnell holds the pole vaulting record at 11 feet 71, s; and Gray Carter is boss of the discus throwers with a toss of 126 feet 2 inches. ' In G. Carter we have the only four-letter man in college. In the inter-class meets, the class of ' 22 again placed second in basketball, after one of the closest series staged on the gym floor in some time. The Sophomore-Freshman football game ended in a tie. Our track team, again under the leadership of Christfield. easily carried ofl: ' the honors in the inter-class track meet. The baseball team, under the captaincy of Challenger, failed to come through in the final game and lost out for first honors, which went to the Juniors. With the return of the class of ' 22 in September of 1920, the members were to find themselves engaged individually and jointly in one of the busiest years of their college careers. The work of the year as it presented itself was as follows : The publication of the Blue Hen ; the Junior Prom, and the Farewell Hop, and at the same time add to and maintain the athletic and scholastic records it had gained in the two previous years. Early in the fall did the Juniors show their lust for time honored fights by instigating Freshman-Sophomore scraps. Will the Sophomores ever know who threw the tomatoes into their marching hosts when they paraded down Main Street in celebration of their victory in the bag rush? Such things as class melees could not attract the attention of the class- mates of ' 22 for any length of time, because as Juniors, they must begin their career as upper classmen, and there was much to be accomplished. One Hundred Four ,sfai, BLUE HEN-af fl. Under the capable leadership of T. R. Dantz (Ted the song-bird), the class made elaborate plans for the Junior Prom, and on the evening of February 4, 1921, this dance was given by the class in the ball room of the Hotel du Pont. It is considered as being the best Delaware Prom, and the present Seniors admit that it was superior to the one of last year. Much credit is due the various committees under the leadership of such men as G. Carter, S. Maroney, Al Reed, Oliver Goffigan, Gerald Smith, and others for the work they did in making this dance a success. With equal interest and enthusiasm, the class is backing the Blue Hen Board, with " Bill " Lilly as our Editor-in-Chief, in striving to make this a banner book. Due to certain changes in program of scholastic pub- lications, the classes of " 21 and ' 22 are publishing a combined book which should be a credit to Delawai ' e. Various members of the class have proven invaluable, for the aid they have rendered to Bill in his efforts to put the book across, and in truth this spirit of co-operation has existed among the class throughout its three years of activity at Delaware. We must admit that the Seniors did win the basketball championship, but we feel confident that victory will be ours before we leave college. Our class team was led by Snipe Twoes, and the team which was greatly depleted of men. by their promotion to varsity ranks, made a creditable showing. With the open- ing of track, we are determined to capture the track championship which we have held before. In speaking of our athletic achievements we do not consider what has been done in the past year by the class teams, because the class of " 22 has urged her men on to greater things, and when we will have graduated from our Alma Mater, we feel confident that we will leave a very large per cent of our class as letter men — the proud wearers of the " D. " With the setting of our -Junior year, and the dawn of our new duties as Seniors, we must be determined to further the honor and glory of this class, and when we bid farewell to the Seniors at the Farewell Hop, assure them that we will gladly and efliciently take their places as Seniors around college.

BLUE HEN History of Class of 1923 ' ' T IS said that the members of the renowned class of Delaware ' 96 agreed - - in September, 1919. when the members of the class of 1923 gathered at Delaware College, that in the near future the numerals of this newer and younger class would be written in the highest pinnacle of the Blue and Gold " Hal! of Fame ' " ; that times were coming when the bard would tune his harp for songs of ' 23, rather than of ' 96. The following relates the history of Delaware ' 23, from that day until this. But before going into cold facts, let us say that ours is a modest class, believing in action, rather than in words. To prove this, we refer you to any Junior or Freshman. But facts are facts and " the truth will out " ; so, mark, Anthony, the ways of the ambitious. The worth of our class showed itself on the first night of our Fresh- man year. So awe-inspiring were we in that stage of our existence, that, without risking physical defeat, the Sophomores (members of Delaware ' 22) went down to moral defeat, not attempting the usual widespread, first-night hazing. This was an index to the subsequent underclassmen battles. In the tug-of-war, and in the numerous " free-for-alls, " during our first year, we were victorious. The Freshman-Sophomore football game ended in a tie, 6 to 6, the " Sophs " scoring on a fumble. When basketball season rolled around, our class team was strong enough to warrant Coach Shipley ' s arranging a special schedule for it, and the squad came through in great shape. In class baseball, ' 23 did not fare so well, but we must be allowed one weakness. One of the best affairs of our Freshman year was our class banquet and theatre party, on January 5, 1920. The Sophomores were fooled so completely that they learned of the affair only when it was too late for them to do any damage. This we did as Freshmen. Now see how we fare as Sophomores. When we returned to Newark last September, we found our class, originally numbering 120 men, had, by the will of the powers that be (be they gods or " profs " ), dwindled to about eighty, good men and true. The first under-class conflict of the year, the bag ru-sh, showed that we, as Sophs, did not lack the punch we had as Freshmen. We " gyped " two of the three bags, winning with an average of .666. The track duel on October 14, saw us victorious again with a score in points of 68-56. Then, with the habit of winning thoroughly incorporated in our activities, we won the big under-class contest of the year, the Soph-Fresh football game, the scoring standing at 12-6. This, with the exception of a few " free-for- alls " in which we topped the Fresh, tells the story of the ' 23- ' 24 " war-fare " to date. We started like a whirlwind and expect to make things hum until June. Look out, Fresh ! One Hundred Thirty-seven .afa@. BLUE HEN- f a " Eleven men of Delaware " 23 have won the coveted " D. " Three of our classmates hold college records. These latter are : Pitman, holder of 220- yard dash record at twenty-two seconds; Humphreys, holding the javelin throw record, with a mark of 164.75 feet, and Booth, holder of record over the college cross-country course (five and one-half miles), time twenty- eight minutes and fifty-two seconds. Our " D " men are : for football, Megaw, varsity end, ' 19 and ' 20 ; Wintrup, varsity fullback, ' 19; Williams, varsity fullback, ' 20; for basket- ball. Cole, varsity forward, ' 21; for track, Humphreys, Pitman and Tebo; for baseball, Robbins, varsity third baseman, ' 20; Underwood, varsity short-stop. ' 20; for cross-country, Hoey, ' 19; Booth, ' 20. This is what Delaware ' 2.3 has done in a year and a half. We hope ths prediction of the honored alumni, made in September, 1919, will come true. The years of our greatest service to Delaware are before us, and if we acquire the true Delaware spirit and learn the lessons of the Blue and Gold, we are satisfied we can render that service. We are glad we came to Delaware and we trust in the years to come Delaware will not regret we came to her. Historian of Delaware ' 23.

BLUE HEN History of Class of 1 924 A ND so it came to pass in the days of Hullihen, the Grand, that the great god Zeus did send his fleet-footed messenger, Hermes Editorius, in search of the humble scribe, the servant of the far-famed class of ' 24. Upon receiving this most potent command, the aforesaid scribe wearily cranked his rusty flivver until the smal ' est bolts did groan in agony. And on the east side toward the rising of the sun, did the scribe drive wearily up the east sides of Mt. ' Lympus. And it was so, when Zeus heard the rattle of the dilapidated jitney, he did send his high escort to meet the scribe. So in regal iiianner was he brought before the omnipotent Zeus. " How now, me lad, " quoth the great One, " what ' s all this rumpus I hear about the class of " 24 of Collegii Delawarensis? Verily, the dope doth proclaim that thou art a noble aggregation. Be ye not silent ; open ye your portal ; and spill ye the dope. " Accordingly, assuming the proper " three-minute-speech attitude, " the clerk proceeded. " 0 august deity, I shall attempt to do thy bidding. On September 15 we arrived, 100 strong. We were a motley crew. After a few days of initiations — stunts and water-trough diving — we settled down to getting acclimated and acquainted. The first actual organization started with the election of Schaefer as temporary president. Under his guidance, we organized strongly enough to stop the pranks of the dignified Sophs. The next step toward strengthening our body was the election of permanent class officers. " " Enough, " rasped Zeus, " these politics bore me. What have you done on the field of battle? " " The Bag Rush was our first official athletic contest. Here we literally carried one bag off " the field, and lost the other two by inches. In the track meet, many of our men appeared to be of varsity calibre, but they had little success again.st the Sophomore ' D ' men of last year ' s team. Our gamest fight was against the Soph football team, which outweighed us throughout the line. The final score of 12-6 hardly shows the pluckiness of the fight. Great victories were recorded over the defeated (?!) Sophs and Juniors in the inter-class games. The ' 24 basketball team was defeated only by the famous ' undefeated ' 21 ' team. The class of ' 24 furnished twelve men for the varsity football squad, five of whom earned their ' D ' : Aiken, Betzmer, Donaldson, Elliott and Steel. Our baseball aspirants are giving the vet- erans of previous years a run for their positions. " " Ay, and well have ye upheld the traditions of Old Delaware, " said Zeus, " but have ye not had any social activities? " The scribe salaamed and said : " Sire, we had two social function.s — the Freshman parade and the Freshman banquet. The evening before g . One Hundred Forty-three w .sfM. BLUE HEN- D ' the Dickinson football game was set for the time of the ti me-honored annual Freshman parade. This date also marked the beginning of the annual ' Stunt Night. ' Trick costumes and costumed tricks furnished great rivalry for the prizes which the Footlights Club offered. Our big social outbreak was the Freshman banquet on December 15, at the Hotel du Pont, followed by the musical comedy " Irene, ' at the Playhouse. It did not take the ' 24 spirit long to show itself when the Sophs kidnapped our president, Town- send, on the day before the banquet ; it required but 15 Freshmen to rescue our leader and take him to a place of safety. The Sophs only made sure of Leamy, our treasurer, by taking him to Lewes, the southernmost end of Delaware. The banquet was a great success, and too much credit can- not be given to the class officers for their untiring efforts toward the success of the affair. John Rew, with his ' Old Virginny Corn, ' kept us all in good ' spirits. ' " The class of ' 24 deeply mourns the death of two of its members. Dur- ing the typhoid epidemic, we lost James M. Chipman and Robert Walker. They were both true friends and loyal supporters of Delaware College. However, this loss was the only serious misfortune by which Fate has seen fit to punish us. " Now the mighty Zeus is satisfied. " Go back, faithful scribe, " said he, " and tell your story to all the world. The class of ' 24 shall wax strong in spirit: it shall prosper; its members shall be the leaders of men. " And we shall ! The Historian. One Hundred Forty-four w .a ai.

BLUE HEN • ' f ' STUDENT COUNCIL OF THE UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE A comparison of the relationship, at present, with that in years past, existing between the faculties and student bodies of our American colleges, shows clearly a tendency toward co-operation and a desire to develop a better spirit of mutual trust. The attitude that students are entirely incapable of exercising ise counsel over their activities ; that they must have their life, both in and out of class rooms, watched over and ruled on by their academic directors, has given way. Education has come to mean more than what is gleaned from text-books. Student government of one or more elements of school life has been the result, wherein the faculty and students share in the policies followed. This desire took form at Delaware College during the year 1915. with the establishment of the Student Council, an organization of the students, for the express purpose of aiding in the administration of the Honor System and in the promoting in every possible way the welfare and the good name of the College. Such an organization introduced a certain honor code which depends for its success upon the attitude that the students take and shall continue to take. The Council possesses a two-fold juris- diction and acts in the capacity of the executive and judicial powers. In general, the Student Council has the power to deal with all matters concerning the life and conduct of the students as a body, which do not fall under jurisdiction of college authorities; to draw up rules and regu- lations that will assure same, and to enforce punishment for violation of such rules as prescribed by decisions of the Honor Court. Oyie Hundred Fifty % .»9a®. BLUE HEN-»f " ' THE " AG " CLUB The " Ag " Club has long been the favorite organization of the Agricul- tural student-body. The fact that the " Ag " ' Club today shows a slight decadence in its social functionings is due more to uncontrollable circum- stances than to a change of sentiment on the part of the Agricultural student body. Chief among these uncontrollable circumstances is the fall- ing off in Agricultural matriculates. In the past three years, the enrollment in Agriculture has been diminishing. With the coming of the back-to-the- land movement and the development of Vocational Agricultural training in the secondary schools, a decided increase in Agricultural matriculates is looked for. With regard to that circumstance the " Ag " Club must " bide a wee " and look to the future. In reviewing the past year ' s activities, there is one in particular which deserves prominence here. I refer to the method of conducting the pro- gram at meeting-time. The custom is to invite one or more members of the faculty or local agricultural organization as " regular speakers " ; and the regular speaker is always followed by several members of the club who are permitted to choose their own themes. But here ' s the point — the club members are forced to address the club, they are selected at random by the entertainment committee, and they couldn ' t " back out " if they wanted to. This is the feature that, during the year just passed, has done more for the advancement of the education of the members than any other item. It has taught them all " how to get up on their feet and talk. " One Hundred Fifty-one THE WOLF CHEMICAL CLUB The Wolf Chemical Club was founded in October, 1917, by several enterprising members of the Senior class. The number of men studying chemistry at Delaware College had steadily increased and it was thought necessary to devise some means by which these students could meet, exchange ideas, and promote matters of common interest. At the present time the Wolf Chemical Club meets once a month and has an active mem- bership of about 2-5 men. Membership is limited to chemistry students of the three upper classes. Faculty members of the Chemistry Department may become honorary members. Enough outside speakers are secured to give the students an insight into the more important chemical industries. The majority of the talks given before the club are delivered by the mem- bers, and much general good has been derived from these informal discus- sions. The faculty members of the Chemical Department take a deep interest in the club and a great measure of the club ' s prosperity is due to their support and advice. (hie Hundred Fifty-two THE ARTS AND SCIENCE CLUB Although the least active organization in holding meetings, the Arts and Science Club is the oldest student club in the College. The daily work is such as to prevent any active meetings such as the " Ag, " " Chemical, " or " Engineering Societies " hold. Although the club is practically dormant, it still binds the Arts and Science men together, especially when there is a group picture to be taken. It is the plan of the society to build up an efficient organization next year and to conduct meetings in chapel, having as speakers men who have made good in the outside world. Chairman W. S. Lilly and Secretary Norman Wade have made out a plan of attack for next year. Dean E. L. Smith is heartily in back of this movement and everything points to a big year in 1922 for the Arts and Science Club. One Hundred Fifty-three f)ai. BLUE HEN- f ' sn iTj AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF ENGINEERS Delaware College was granted a chapter in the American Association of Engineers in February, 1920. Affiliation with a national engineering society brought the old local engineering society out of a dormant state into an active and influential college organization. The chapter is com- posed of engineering students and some members of the engineering faculty. It is entirely under the management of the student officers. Meet- ings of the chapter are held regularly on the first and third Thursday nights of each month. At these meetings discussions are held on local interests of the engineering students. Prominent practicing engineers have addressed the chapter on such subjects as " Scientific Employment, " " Office Management, " " Production Control, " and many other phases of problems with which the technical graduate should be familiar. The objects of the American Association of Engineers are to raise the standards of ethics of the engineering profession and to promote the economic and social welfare of the engineer. In addition to upholding the objects of the national association, the local chapter aims to provide a means by which the student may be brought into closer touch with the profession for which he is preparing himself.

It was founded in 1884 as a student publication superseding the " Advance " of earlier days. From this time up to a few years ago, the Review appeared regularly as a monthly magazine, devoted almost entirely to " literary " writing. The election for editor-in-chief was at this time one of the most bitterly contested elections in the College, and the literary societies then in existence regarded the winning of this post by one of its members as the final proof of superiority over the rival society. However, in May, 1915, the Review, yielding to the demand for more " news, " became a five-column, four-page paper, and has since continued in that form. It is issued every Wednesday during the collegiate year. One Hundred Fifty-five .if%@. BLUE HEN •8!) ' ' The Revieu- staff consists of fifteen members, ten of which serve on the editorial staff and five on the business staff. The editor-in-chief and the business manager are elected each year, usually in May, by the mem- bers of the retiring staff, to serve for the following year. Appointments to the staff are given purely on merit, and competition for the various posi- tions, especially among the Freshmen, is strongly encou raged. The policy of the Revitw is a conservative one. It takes no radical stand on any subject, but endeavors to represent to the students the truth in all cases. In its criticism, the Revieic is always constructive, being inclined to remain silent rather than give undue criticism where such is unwarranted. " Our College First, " the motto of the Revieir. is kept upper- most in mind in all its writings, and a bigger and better Delaware is the goal for which it is continually striving. The Ririew is a member of the Intercollegiate Newspaper Association of the Middle Atlantic States. DELAWARE COLLEGE CHESS CLUB The Delaware College Chess Club maintains a team for intercollegiate matches and has a number of tournaments through the college year within its own membership. Any student of Delaware College may become a member of the Club. Last year the Chess Club had matches with Haver- ford College, L ' niversity of Pennsylvania, and the Brandywine Chess Club of Wilmington. Dr. F. M. K. Foster acts as adviser and coach for the club and its teams. 0«e Hundred Fifty-six THE VARSITY CLUB The Varsity Club of Delaware College is an organization composed of students who " have earned their Varsity " D. " The history of this organi- zation covers only a period of two years, but its influence upon athletics at Delaware has " more than merited its existence as an active college organization. Earlv in the spring of 1919, steps were taken to found at Delaware College a ' Varsity Club which would be similar in many respects to organi- zations of athletes which recently had been founded by men of the wide- awake colleges of the East. Acting upon a number of suggestions, the letter men of the Senior class held a meeting and a committee of two Seniors was appointed to draw up plans and by-laws for such an organiza- tion. In due order, a constitution was drawn and adopted to organize a club, the membership of which should include Delaware letter men. At the first meeting of the organization, officers were elected as follows: President, Henry Marston ; vice-president, F. Bayard Carter; secretary-treasurer, Vm. Ellison Barnard ; recorder, Phillip Marvel. Since that time the presidents in succession have been Bayard Carter for year 1920, and H. B. Alexander, who at the present time is the presid- ing officer of the organization. The purposes of the organization are: To promote and strengthen interest in athletics at Delaware by bringing the members of the Alumni and athletes of Delaware closer together ; to create and maintain a better feeling of co-operation among the letter men and to offer in its membership an additional reward to the mere earning of the " D. " One Hundred Fifly-seven ,afaa. BLUE HEN- ' if a, As concerns the eligibility for membership in the organization, all alumni men who were previous Delaware letter men are considered mem- bers; all men who win " D ' s " in their Freshman or Sophomore years become active members at the beginning of their Junior year, and all Juniors and Seniors who win their letters become automaticallv members of the Varsity Club. The insignia of the organization is a circular gold button with a blue enamelled " D " in the center, and all alumni members wearing this insignia of membership are permitted to enter all athletic contests fi-ee of charge. Since the birth of this organization, conditions have steadily improved. Delaware has placed sti ' onger teams on the gridiron, courts, baseball field and in the basketball cage, and as a result, Delaware is gradually being lifted to a higher plane of recognition among collegiate athletic circles. Each member of the club has acted individually in seeing that athletes are interested in coming to Delaware and that those who are already here, give to their Alma Mater the best that is in them. In addition to the athletic activity, it is attempting to permeate a better spirit of fellowship among its members by bringing them together under certain social activities. Several banquets have been successfully undertaken and on April 8, 1921, the club gave its first annual masked banquet and ball, a new feature in social activity at Delaware College, which was one of the gala events of the college year. The forward steps of this organization have been marked by a num- ber of eventful acts and it is hoped that the ultimate purpose and end will be to create for Delaware a larger and better realm of athletics that shall harmonize and coincide with the extended plan of proposed educational development for the institution. Ojie Hundred Fifty-eight .s a®, BLUE HEN = ' if ' ' ' THE FACULTY CLUB The Faculty Club was organized in 1919 for the main purpose of fostering friendly social relations among the members of the faculty. The idea of such a club was conceived by Mr. A. G. Wilkinson, Business Administrator. Through his efforts, rooms in the east wing of Old Col- lege were set aside for the purpose. These rooms were furnished com- pletely by Mr. H. Rodney Sharp, who has for many years shown a deep interest in both the educational and social activities of the College. The club arranges lectures, readings, and receptions, in addition to providing comfortable surroundings for informal gatherings of the members of the teaching staff. The officers and committees are as follows : President, Mr. R. W. Heim; vice-president, Professor G. E. Hancock; secretary and treasurer, Mr. A. G. Wilkinson. E.xecutive Committee: Professor G. E. Button and Professor G. A. Koerber. Social Committee : Professor R. W. Kirkbride, chairman, Coach H. B. Shipley and IMr. J. L. Coyle. One Hundred fifty-nine w fzs, BLUE HEN-iD a, THE COMMONS During the annual Thanksgiving dinner, November 25, 1919, we were vein- much surprised when F. Bayard Carter announced that Miss Carrie Stuart had resigned as dietitian in order to embark upon the sea of matri- mony. Everyone of us were sorry that our " Big Sister, " as she was known to us. was leaving; because she had won our love and admiration through her personal interest in everj-thing we undertook — especially in our ath- letes, and the preparation of their food. At the same time " Bess " intro- duced Miss E. B. Hall as Miss Stuart ' s successor. Miss Hall was not unknown to us, because during the six weeks that she had been assistant dietitian, she had proved that she took an intei-est in the student body and ever -thing pertaining to Delaware College. She was graduated from Western Reserve University and had been employed in the South Side Hospital of Pittsburgh until she came to Delaware. On .January 1, 1920. Miss Hall introduced Miss Teresa Mathews to us as her assistant. Miss Mathews was graduated from Wyoming Seminary in 1918. and from Jefferson Hospital in 1919. She came to us a very quiet and resen-ed young lady : but we soon realized that we had a true friend and a cheerful, unselfish helper in Miss Mathews. When the session of 1920-21 opened on September 16th, the student body was greeted by Miss Natalie Betts as dietitian, in the place of Miss Hall, who had resigned during the summer. Miss Betts was graduated from Simmons College with B. S. degree in 1917. She taught domestic science at Arlington, Mass., and Meriden, Conn., until she came to Dela- ware. The work here was a new experience and during the time that it took for her to become acquainted with and to realize her duties to the student body, many of the students thought that this department was rendering unsatisfactory services. One Hundred Sixty .ii ai. BLUE HEN- f ' i ' This was soon remedied by the appointment of a committee from the student body by Mr. Wilkinson. This committee co-operates with Miss Betts and Mr. Wilkinson for the betterment of the Commons, and an improvement was immediately seen. Everyone of us realizes that the dietitian has a great task to perform, and we sincerely wish her success. Here the waiters should come in for their share of praise ; because without them the social life of Delaware would be incomplete. Besides serving the " ravenous mob " three times each day, they serve the dinners and banquets which are given in Old College Hall. This bunch is a happy- go-lucky group who take everything as it comes and pretend to enjoy it. They are always telling of an athletic event, or some pi ' etty girl they saw or met. Daly and Brandt, the comedians of the group, never allow a single minute of dullness ; because they are always prepared and willing to break any monotony that may arise. We could not close this article without giving honor to our ex-head waiter, G. Franklin Waples. Waples served his apprenticeship under Miss Stuart, and became a very capable and efficient ruler of the waiters. But he was like many another person, when he received an " enormous legacy " from home, he retired from the trials and tribula tions of work. Armel Nutter was his successor and is fast developing into a head waiter of Waples ' type. One Hundred Sixty-one 1 ,afa@. BLUE HEN ' f ' THE INFIRMARY The records of the Infirmarj ' show that during the collegiate year, 1919-1920, three hundred and thirty-eight students used the facilities of the Infirmarj-. Twenty- ght students were in residence there for different periods of time varying from two to seventeen days. The men received treatment for almost any complaint, from " la grippe " to fractured bones. Three hundred and ten men reported at the Infirmary for minor treatment, including the application of the electric baker. To date in this collegiate year, thirty-three men have been in residence at the Infirmary. A study of the records shows that the diagnoses have been of a more serious nature than those of the previous year, but grippe and tonsilitis still continue to be the prevailing form of sicknesses. Cases of nephritis, typhoid fever, enteritis, heart trouble, and continuous hic- coughs have all been treated this year. Seventy-three men have called at the Infirmarj " for minor treatment, thus making a total of one hundred and six cases treated to date. Miss Rosalie Pie was graduated from Jefferson Medical College Hos- pital in 1899. From then until Januarj-, 1919, when she took upon her shoulders the burden of caring for the sick in our midst, she had had a wide and varied experience in private nursing. No records can reveal the quality of her work. That can best be judged by the willing testimony of those who have come under her care. Those of us who are unfortunate (or fortunate) enough to be relegated to the Infirmary- can hardly be induced to leave. No mother could give more careful attention to her children than does Miss Pie to her " guest, " and she feeds them as though they were princes. Oyie Hundred Sixty-two 1 ,afai, BLUE HEN- ' D ' i- IP1 ■— . p ■ ■ — ■ O " H u iJ -= . - ■ — ' — THE REHABILITATION DEPARTMENT AT THE UNIVERSITY OF DELAWARE One of the greatest problems of America today is to take care of her wounded ex-service men. In various sections of the country, departments called Rehabilitation Units are to be found. These departments are instituted in the hope of promoting education among the returned soldiers, and of fitting them for some respectable position in life. Newark, Dela- ware, and the University of Delaware are fortunate in having such a unit. The " Rehab " men at Delaware are a separate unit from the College itself. By having a distinct department to themselves, they are better able to follow any course which they may choose. Some take up farming and agriculture; some, the various industrial sciences, and others turn to professional fields. On the whole, their work is rather vocational than academic, more practical than theoretical. They are men who wish soon to take real, paying positions. A great work is the Rehabilitation Unit carrying on. Great because it requires care, eternal patience, unfailing perseverance — the real tests and requisites of ability. Here are men who have made sacrifices — greater, believed by some, than the Supreme Sacrifice. It has been said, death would have been better. Nevertheless they remain perpetual reminders of the war — whirled from their feet by the storm, and now grasping bravely for the lost thread of progress. Nothing that we can do for them is too much. They represented American honor in Europe. Before we say harsh things, let us look around, thank God for what America is today, and put in a good word for these — the country ' s bravest. One Hundred Sixty-three 1 •BLUE HEN- f THE BLUE LANTERN SOCIETY The first honoran- society of a Sophomore class of the University was formed by a few members of the class of 1923. The organization was named " The Blue Lantern Society. " The purposes of the society are chiefly for the amelioration of inter- class spirit between Sophomore and Freshman classes and to help in the ultimate approach to an ideal college spirit on the campus of the Univer- sity of Delaware. Realizing that it is hard to create and consen ' e the best of spirits between the two lower classes into whose minds time-worn and revered rivalry is almost inextricably inculcated, the founders of the " Blue Lantern " saw that if the Freshmen had something worth while to attain at the end of their first year, they would be more likely to watch closely their conduct about the College and put their best into their scholas- tic studies and activities. The result was that the present society came into existence. The society is allowed to consist of not more than nineteen nor less than seventeen men. The active members of one year select from the Freshman class at the end of the year the members for the following year. The outgoing group becomes automatically inactive as far as the internal affairs of the society are concerned, but the bond of friendship and mutual desire for the common good of the College remains untouched. Thus in its infancy, the present Blue Lantern looks into the haze of the future, working and hoping for the ultimate attainment and permanent establish- ment of the much desired and elusive Utopian college spirit at the Univer- sity of Delaware.

With a roar of a lion and a heart of gold he is always ready to give the student a lift. Few realize the great service he has rendered to the College, efficiently and faithfully. " Bus " is always aiding the student organizations, planning improvements to the buildings and helping needy students. Due to his mighty endeavors the Faculty Club has been made one of the most attrac- tive clubs of any of the Eastern colleges. " Bus, " we admire your ability and we all will stand by you. Mr. Wilkinson was born in London, England, September 15, 1880, and received his education in England. Before coming to the United States, he spent a number of years in Canada. He has specialized in many branches of accounting and systematizing. In September, 1918, Mr. Wil- kinson came to Delaware as representative of a large accounting firm of New York, to systematize the financial and business aflfairs of the College. Upon completio " n of his work in November, 1918, he was invited by the Board of Trustees to become Business Administrator. He has completed over two years ' work in this position, during which time a modern business system has been installed at the College. He has a crisp, business-like manner which gains for him the respect and confidence of all who do business with him and marks him as a leader and organizer.

" Alex " Blair and " Bill " Lilly and Dr. John R. Moore were largely responsible for the management, composition and direction of the club ' s efforts. The first show, which was given for the benefit of the Rerieir. was a pot-pourri. It was staged in Wolf Hall on Tuesday, March 16, 1920. and drew a crowd that taxed the capacity of the house. In the first section, stellar tribute was rightfully payed to " Fritz " Harmer and " Mouser " Lilly for their wit and music, and also to Hughes, the foot-patter. In the second spasm, the mandolin quartette and Jimmy Tilghman ' s " Ballet Egj-ptienne " proved to be extraordinary.

BLUE HEK- D ' ' ' A Midsummer Night ' s Dream ff The final and more elaborate presentation was offered on the open-air stage in front of Wolf Hall. Shakespeare ' s " A Midsummer-Night ' s Dream " was the plav, and its popularity and effectiveness were vouched for bv the two thousand spectators who attended. The weather was ideal for an out-of-door play, and the moon blended in to aid the spirit of fairy romance in the lines and actions. The cast of sixty students of the two colleges was an exceptionally strong one. Broughall, appearing in the comic part of " Bottom, " won many a long and loud laugh. Olcott, as Lysander, the ardent young lover, and Allen as the rival lover, played their respective parts with all the fervor and effectiveness that their parts imply. Fairbanks as the gracious Duke, Robbins as the sportive Puck, Rowan as the imperious Oberon, and Mul- rooney as the testy Egeus, played their roles in good dramatic style. For the girls, Miss Dorothv Ford, who played the difficult role of the slighted Helena, proved her ability to be of the first order. Misses Hanchett and Francis adapted themselves to their parts exceedingly well, and thus helped to keep the acting of the play at a high level of excellence. The characters were portrayed as follows: THE CAST Theseus Mr. Joseph H. Fairbanks Hippolyta Miss Lillian Butz Demetrius Mr. Alvan Allen Helena Miss Dorothy Ford Lysander Mr. J. W.

The Freshmen are niasqued in every costume imaginable. Upper classmen generally join in the jolly caravan. Everyone tries to present the best make-up, in order that he may receive one of the many prizes which our kind friends have made possible. These stupendous events always precede one of our hardest football games in order to get the students in a " peppy " mood for the attack upon the gridiron. After everyone has masqued to the best of his ability, the grand march begins. The masqueraders, members of the student body and young fellows of the town parade their motley array from Recitation Hall up Main Street to Sigma Phi Epsilon House, back to Sigma Nu House, and then down to W. C. D. At the W. C. D. the boys perform many stunts and tricks before our fair sisters. From W. C. D. the masqueraders return to Old College Hall, where the prizes are awarded, and a football smoker follows. NOVEMBER M, 1919 Winners Prize Donated By 1.

" The Artist Series The first annual Artist Series conducted in Wolf Hall during the past season has been an unequalled success. It has been a real " Artist " Series from beginning to end, every number measuring up to the highest standard. The series was opened on October 29, with great " eclat " by the Rich- Kindler-Hammann Trio, including Thaddeus Rich, concert master of the Philadelphia Orchestra ; Hans Kindler, well-known Dutch ' cellist ; and E. C. Hammann, prominent Philadelphia pianist. The program included several musical masterpieces such as Beethoven ' s Trio in E flat. The faultless ensemble of the trio was inspiring. The second number was an instructive illustrated lecture on Novem- ber 13, by Roy Chapman Andrews, of the American Museum of Natural History, describing with the aid of slides some of the unknown regions of Central Asia. The next two entertainments proved to be among the most popular of the series. The Lotus Male Quartet, of New York, rendered an extremely enjoyable program of the lighter variety of songs on December 11. On January 15, Dunworth Walker, magician, gave a fascinating performance of magic. By a peculiar coincidence, John Drinkwater, the famous writer and dramatist, author of the play " Abraham Lincoln, " was scheduled to appear on February 12, Lincoln ' s Birthday, and he was greeted by a large and attentive audience. The last number was a song recital by that inimitable tenor, John Barnes Wells, on April 2. His popularity is nation-wide, and he needs no introduction to music lovers. It is seldom that such an array of talent can be heard in one place ; and it was only through the generous efforts of Dean Winifred J. Robinson, Dean E. Laurence Smith, and H. Rodney Sharp, that this series was made possible for the community. The series was arranged for the purpose of bringing to the students the very best talent obtainable. Not only the students but the faculty and friends of the Univer.sity have responded with warm appreciation. We, the students, faculty, and friends of the University, through the medium of the Blue Hen, wish to express our appreciation to the following committee for their services in securing these entertainments : COMMITTEE President Walter Hullihen Mr. R.

BLUE HEN Social Life at Delaware The social life of the student at University of Delaware is one that is justly envied by any other college group. The Junior Promenade, Fare- well Hop. the annual formal dances of the four fraternities, student council dances, informal dances of the different fraternities, house parties, dinners and smokers, are a few of the social functions. The Junior Promenade is considered the biggest event of the collegiate year, and the one given by the class of 1921 was the first dance to be held outside of the college community. The University has grown as much in her social, as in her athletic and academic life ; therefore it was neces- sary to select a larger and better ball room than could be secured in Newark. The idea of the committee to select this ball room was to secure the best one possible, and their idea was realized when they obtained the Gold ball room and the du Barry room of the Hotel du Pont. The class of 1922 followed the example set by the class of 1921, and gave their promenade in the ball room of the hotel. The present Juniors profited by the experiences of the former class and sold a limited number of tickets. The natural color of the interior decoration of the ball room was the " Gold " of Delaware ' s colors, and with the addition of blue shades on the lights, the Blue and Gold color scheme was perfect. No further decorations were necessary because of the beautiful and artistic interior decorating. The programs of the two classes were made up very neatly. The one of the class of 1921 contained on its front cover a blocked " D " within which were their numerals " 21. " The one of the class of 1922 contained on the front cover a miniature colonial couple with " Junior Prom " embossed in golden letters below it. For both dances the Grand March began at eight-thirty o ' clock. These promenades differed very much from the promenades of " years ago, when the parties were forced to content themselves with several strolls around the ball room. Instead, each fellow took his partner and swung her to and fro with the strains of the syncopated music by Madden ' s " Jazzy " orchestra. If one would take time to look about him, he would see each fair maiden smiling into her partner ' s face, a smile which told that she was very much plea.sed with her partner and the dance. About one o ' clock refreshments were served in the du Barry room. The ice cream, cake and coffee greatly refreshened the jovial dancers for the remaining three hours of pleasure. And when the orchestra played the last strains of " Dreamy Alabama, " and of " Until You Say Good-bye, " everyone was indeed sorry that the end had come. One Hundred Eighty-one 1 jfas. BLUE HEN-»Da ' During the year two informal dances ai ' e given by each fraternity, and six informal dances by the Student Council. These events, together with the numerous house parties given at the different " frat " houses, bring the members of the student body in a closer relationship with each other, and build up a stronger spirit for Old Delaware. We have talked practically about nothing except dances thus far ; but do not forget that we have some real banciuets within our walls at various times during the year. These are very pleasing to us, especially to our appetite, and we always do justice to the menu. Aside from our own banquets, outside organizations give dinners in our dining hall. Our sisters from " down the road " share a great part of our social life, and we of theirs. On every " Open Night " the boys doll themselves up and wend their way to the doors of Residence Hall. And he who is lucky enough to receive an invitation to their Junior Prom, Farewell Hop or one of their many dinners is indeed fortunate and is always assured a good time. Each fraternity gives an annual dance some time during the collegiate year. The Sigma Nu and Kappa Alpha Fraternities hold their dances in the Armory ; the Sigma Phi Epsilon and Omega Alpha Fraternities hold their dances in Old College. Each fraternity takes great interest in its dance, and many hours are spent in decorating the hall. Festoons and streamers in the fraternity colors form a greater portion of the decorations. The lights are shaded with certain designs of flowers. The decorations are, as far as possible, in accordance with the season of the year. Banners and pennants are placed upon the walls. The programs are very neatly arranged. They contain the name of the fraternity, what annual dance it is, the place and time it was given, the order of dances, the names of patronesses, and the chapter roll. Each one of the happy dancers enjoys a menu similar to the follow- ing: Chicken salad, finger rolls, ice cream, cakes, coffee, nuts and mints. g One Hundred Eighty-two x ifz®, BLUE HEN 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

Robinson Music bv Madden ' s Orchestra Owe Hundred Ninety y Military The college year of 1920 and 1921 has been the most advantageous and most interesting of any year in the history of the Military Department at the University of Delaware. This is easily verified by the unusual atti- tude which the students have shown in the courses. Usually, military science is a bore, but it has been made distinctly different by the unceasing efforts of Major Row and Sergeants Fraser, Morgan and Davis. Sand tables and a military laboratoi-y have been established in the basement of Recitation Hall. Machine guns, automatic rifles and pistols, a one-pounder and caisson, and a French mortar have been put at the disposal of the students for the purpose of studying. There were drills in all of these modern war implements which create real and practical knowledge of modern warfare. Sub-caliber target firing was developed during the spring and a great degree of interest was shown in the com- petition between the companies and platoons; many high scores were recorded. On January 18, 1921, the Delaware College Battalion went to Dover for the inauguration exercises of Governor Denney. A special train left Newark at 9 A. M. and returned at 6 P. M. The " weather was clear but cold, and the appearance and spirit of the men were excellent. The march- ing and deportment of all the men of the Battalion was commended by the Governor and other State officials who witnessed the review. After the exercises lunch was served at the Capital Hotel. Many of the students remained in the Capital city for the inaugural ball. There are two hundred and two members of the R. 0. T. C. ; 2-5 Seniors, 41 Juniors, 72 Sophomores and 64 Fre.shmen. Of the twenty-seven Seniors graduating this year, nineteen have applied for and will receive commis- sions in the Officers ' Reserve Corps, U. S. Army. Two members of the Senior class have applied for commissions in the Regular Army. In June and July of 1920, twenty-one of the present Senior class attended for six weeks the R. 0. T. C. camp at Camp Devens, Mass. All of them reported an excellent time, and hailed the camp as a real success. This year there are thirty-seven Juniors who expect to attend the R. 0. T. C. camp for six weeks at Plattsburg Barracks, New York. Elaborate plans are being made for the training and entertaining of the students. The camp opens June 16 and closes August 28, 1921. 5 One Hnndrcd Xincly-three . m, BLUE HEN LATHE B. R0 ' Major Infantry Lathe B.

BLUE HEN- f a- James Marvin Le Cato Track Coach Coach " Jimmie " is the best track mentor Delaware College ever had and the best that the University of Delaware can ever hope to have. Few persons know of his life long experience on the cinder path and this is only a brief resume of his athletic career. Baltimore City College: Former holder of Maryland Scholastic quarter-mile record, 52 seconds. Joint Jiolder of 120-yard " low " hurdle record, 14.2 5 seconds. Winner of President ' s Cup, Baltimoi ' e City College. (For all around track ability.) Member of varsity baseball and basketball teams. Marks of 50.4 5 seconds in the quarter-mile dash; 22 feet 2 inches in the broad jump, and 26 seconds in the 220 low hurdles. University of Michigan: Varsity letter man for three years ; unique feat of running first and last on same mile relay team. Track Coach of Marshall College, 1914-1918. Track Coach of Delaware College and University of Delaware, 1918- 1921. During his time here " Jimmie " has developed many men including those who have broken the following records : 220, 440, and 800-yard dashes, one and two miles, cross-country, high jump, javelin, pole vault, discus and shot-put. The track teams have scored victories over the following large colleges : Swarthmore, Haver- ford, Muhlenberg, Johns Hopkins University. Match relay victories have been scored over George Washington University, and Galludet. Third place in the Middle Atlantic Championships Relay and fourth place in the Middle States Conference Games complete the record. Defeats have been few and far between. He inaugurated the feature of having a Southern trip, inter-class games, and weekly meets. Two Hundred f i. BLUE HEN- ' if a ' H. Burton Shipley Athletic Director Coach Shipley ' s record is enough to explain his wonderful success here at Delaware ; a glance at the records of his teams will more than prove his versatility and ability of handling men. His first athletic experience was at the Maryland Preparatory School where he was a varsity " M " man in football, basketball and baseball. He then entered Maryland State, graduating in 1914, a letter man in the three above mentioned sports. His next adventure was industrial baseball, playing with the American Security team which won the championship of Washington, D. C. While at Maryland State he was all-Maryland quarterback in 1913, and all- Maryland fullback in 1914. Later he plaved professional ball with Martins- burg of the Blue Ridge League. In 1915 he was graduated from the Uni- versity of Illinois, taking a degree in coaching of ba.sketball. baseball, foot- ball and athletic training. In 1916-1917 he was athletic director at Perkiomen Prep, and under his guidance the teams made the following records : Baseball— Won 12; Tied 1; Lost 1. Basketball— Won 12; Lost 5. Football— Won 5 ; Lost 2. His next position was athletic director at Marshall College, West Vir- ginia. Here he was very successful and was gaining in fame when he enlisted in the service in 1918, later being commissioned a second lieutenant in the Army. In January, 1919, Delaware College was fortunate in securing his services and immediately athletics began to boom. Mere words would not express his value or success. Victories over Penn, North Carolina State, Swarthmore, Haverford, Stevens, Rutgers, Maryland State, V. P. I., Washington and Lee, in baseball; victories over Navy, Carnegie Tech, Swarthmore, Stevens, V. P. I., Lafayette, in basketball ; and vic- tories over Haverford, Lirsinus. George Washington LIniversity in foot- ball, clearly demonstrates what " Ship " has done for Delaware in establish- ing an athletic record. The above facts are all that are necessary to show how much Coach Shipley has aided the College and the University in athletics. Ttvo Hiiyidrcd One Dai. BLUE HEN- fa ' i " I- m- ■ ■ ' ■ ' .

BLUE HEN- f i ' Football 1919 Delaware ' s football season of 1919 cannot be considered successful from the standpoint of games won and lost. But it was a season full of mishaps which always seemed to break at the wrong moment for the Blue and Gold squad. Injuries took several regulars from the team — a fact which weakened the morale of the remainder. It was an uphill fight the whole way, and credit is due Coach Shipley for pulling through as well as he did. Two victories, one scoreless tie, and five defeats was the final count. The season opened with Franklin and Marshall on P razer Field. The Lan- caster lads, coached by the redoubtable By Dickson, and i-einforced by several members of the erstwhile U. S. ' M. C. team, put up a good game, but seemed unable to pierce Delaware ' s defense. The contest was a see-saw from start to finish and ended up with the score tied at to 0. The following Saturday saw Penn swamp little Delaware under an avalanche of points on Franklin Field. Philadelphia. Delaware was out- classed from the start but played gamely through sixtv minutes of hopeless- ness, emerging 89 points behind their victors. It was sweet revenge for the drubbing handed Penn in baseball the previous season. Dickinson, playing a crippled team, had diflflculty in scoring the 20 points they did on the Blue and Gold. Delaware was weakened by the loss of several regulars, due to injuries received in the Penn game, but plaved their bigger rivals to a .standstill during the latter half of what had apparently been an unequal contest. The final score was 20 to 0. On the Saturday next, Old Delaware took a fall out of Haverford on her own gridiron, 14 to 0. Playing a brand of football that could not be beaten, the Chicks had things much their own wav. Haverford ' s o ffense didn ' t have a chance to get started, and the terrific line smashing of the Delaware backs tore great holes thru the Scarlet ' s forwards. The game was replete with brilliant playing. Georgetown U. had little trouble in beating Delaware 40 to 7 in the following week. The game was sloppy and there was several inches of mud on the Hilltoppers ' field. Delaware ' s lone score came as the result of a fumble. Swarthmore then appeared on Frazer Field to trim their hated rivals. The score was 17 to 0. The game was well played, the superior weight and experience of the Little Quakers telling on their lighter opponents. Two Hididrcd Three .ifm, BLUE HEN-af a, Delaware upset the dope, then, by handing Lebanon Valley a 21 to 7 lacing. The lads from the coal mine district were the first to score, but the Blue and Gold soon overhauled the lead and stayed out in front for the remainder of the game. The Thanksgiving Day game with P. M. C. was a disappointment to Delaware football enthusiasts. The cadets took the lead in the first few minutes of play on a fumble and were never headed. The final count was 17 to 0. And as another season passed into history, with it went the foot- ball careers of such men as Captain Bill Stewart, perhaps the hardest tackier and best center Delaware has ever had ; ex-Captain Harry Loose, varsity half and fullback for four years ; " Bess " Carter, varsity tackle, chosen all-Maryland in 1918; " Mike " Plam, even a harder tackier than Stewart, and a great open-field runner. It was not a particularly successful season, but it was well fought. RECORD Delaware Delaware Delaware Delaware Delaware 14 Delaware 7 Delaware Delaware 21 Delaware Opponent F.

Delaware, at times, showed flashes of big-time football, only to relapse into mediocrity when hope ran high. The record shows the inconsistency of the Chicks ' play. That the team had the stuff and knew football was demon- strated time and time again. And yet teams that should have been beaten were not. It was indeed hard to analyze. The annual game with Pennsylvania served as an opener; 3-5 points were the best the Quakers could do in the way of scoring. However, they put several men out with injuries for the remainder of the- season and so did more harm than was supposed. Delaware failed to score. " Sank " McCaughan Two Hundred Four For three successive weeks the Yellowjackets took on all comers and sent them all away disgruntled. Ursinus, fresh from victory over Rutgers, was snowed under 14 hard-earned points. George Washington University took the count at 14 to 7 away from home, and St. John ' s succumbed easily. 20 to 0. Haverford came down strong the next Saturday and avenged the defeat of the year before, 14 to 0. Successive beatings by Stevens and Swarthmore brought a patched-up Delaware team to face Dickinson. For thirty minutes the Carlisle gridironers had things their own way, rolling up 35 points to Delaware ' s 7. Then with one of those peculiar reversals of form, the Yellowjackets not only held their own but literally took the offensive and hurled their big opponents back to their own goal line time and time again. It was a wonderful exhibition of grit in the face of defeat. Neither team scored during the second half. The annual Thanksgiving game with P. M. C. caught the " Gold Dust Babies " at the top of their speed. P. M. C., expecting an easy victory, had its hands full staving off defeat. Delaware played the cadets off their feet throughout the whole of the brilliant game. The final result was a scoreless tie. As has been said, the 1920 team was an enigma. It loved to pull the unexpected, and it succeeded admirably more than once. It was a good, if erratic, team, and it was one which Captain McCaughan may well be proud of leading.

BLUE HEN- 1) ' , Basketball 1919-1920 " Bess " Caktek Capt., 1919-20 The basketball team of 1919-1920 was un- doubtedly the greatest five that ever represented Delaware College on the court. Through the rangy size of its members and the consistency with ' which it turned in winning scores it was accorded the name of the Big Five, and as such it will live in Delaware history. Among its victims are Navy, Lafayette, V. P. L, Swarthmore, and a host of other lesser satellites in the basketball world. Penn was held to a small margin, and the general opinion was that the Big Five outplayed their big-town rivals. A final talley of thirteen victories and two defeats was turned in, probably the best record a Delaware team has ever made. Delaware took the opener from the Naval Academy by the overwhelming score of 34 to 19, opening the eyes of the basketball world, and surprising the middies who had been so confident of victory. The decisiveness of the defeat precluded the possibility of " fluke " and the subsequent work of the Blue and Gold squad proved that it was a worthy foe to any university in the country. Delaware took the lead in the early minutes of play and was never headed. A desperate spurt by the Middies " was checked near the end of the first half and Delaware ' s reserve poAver carried her on to an easy victory. The following week the Chicks experienced little difliculty in beating Catholic University, 31 to 8. Delaware outplayed the Brooklanders at ever - turn. Stevens, however, was not so easy. A hard problem for any team to solve, the Hoboken passers fought the Yellowjackets from the start to the finish. They used the bounding pass to peculiar advantage and succeeded in holding the fast-going Delaware squad to a 25 to 23 score, a remarkable feat for any team. The Lafayette basketeers, with McAvoy at the helm, next broke the monotony of life in Newark. Delaware continued in its stride, however, and came out on the joy end of a 27 to 19 score. It was a great battle, made doubly interesting by the personal touch lent it by the presence of Mr. McAvoy, ever popular with Delaware rooters. In the same week, the " Flying Blues " took a fall out of little Ursinus. The score was 40 to 3, the three being foul goals. " Red " Grove and his pals were helpless before the varied attack of the Delaware five. -Sank ' Two Hundred Nine " C ,sf)as. BLUE HEN " Alec " Captain, 1920-1921 Georgetown was the big black spot in an other- wise brilliant season. The Hilltoppers trimmed their visitors by a 40 to 26 score. Delaware had difhculty in playing under certain rules as they are interpreted in Washington and so could do little to stop their Hilltop rivals. Haverford was probably a harder nut to crack than it had at first been supposed. With the ad- vantage of the knowledge of their own floor, they held the Chicks to a 15 to 15 score in the first half, only to succumb in the second to the vicious attack of the Delaware forwards. The final score was 27 to 18. Franklin and Marshall at home , and Muhlen- berg away, proved easy victims for Delaware, playing then in mid-season form, with none of the lingering regrets for football or the half-formed hopes of baseball to bother her. F. and M. was beaten 53 to 17, while Muhlenberg took the short end of a 36 to 24 .score. The Yellowjackets then cleaned up three games on a three-day trip through Pennsylvania. Gettvsburg was hard, but the Big Five pulled through with a 28 to 19 count. Dickinson on the following night succeeded in holding the reserves to a small lead until Shipley sent in his varsity for a few minutes during the second half. When the hometowners saw the rangy first squad, they stopped chafiing the scrubs and settled resignedly to a beating. The score was 41 to 19. Franklin and Marshall tried next to take the measure of the Delaware basketeers and had it not been for superior foul-shooting would probably have succeeded. Delaware totalled 18 out of 21 fouls and pulled out victors by the score of 32 to 28. The Penn unbeaten team found worthy opponents in the fast-traveling Delaware squadron on the following Wednesday night. Weightman Hall was jammed with enthusiastic rooters for both fives. Penn ' s much-touted second-half attack fizzled and the Quakers had a good bit of trouble pulling a victory out of the fire. The referee ' s decisions were at times question- able and the displeasure of the crowd was shown several times by volumes of hisses. The final whistle blew with Delaware in the midst of a desperate spurt, lacking but six points to win. The score was 27 to 21. On the night following the Pennsylvania game, V. P. I., South Atlantic Champions, appeared in Newark to tackle Delaware. The game was one of the greatest of the season, the sportsmanlike work of both teams featur- ing. Delaware won 26 to 21 after a grueling uphill battle. V. P. I. was indeed a worthy foe. Tivo HiiHchcd Ten w .sfas). BLUE HEN-sf ' There could have been no more fitting climax to a wonderful season than the 33 to 20 defeat which Delaware handed to Swarthmore the next week. The little Quakers had a good team and the game w as a whirlwind from start to finish. Hundreds packed the old gymnasium and hundreds were turned away from the door. And hundreds saw one of the greatest teams that ever stepped on a floor trim its ancient rivals decisively. Indeed it was a great ending of a great season. And so the Big Five will live in Delaware his- tory as one of the high-water marks of athletic achievement. As a defensive team it had no equals ; as an offensive team, few. In a word, it combined a wonderful defense, a fierce attack, and a great amount of reserve power to carry it over the rough spots of a stiff schedule. It was nearly ideal.

And yet, considering all things, it was a good season ; one of which Delaware can well be proud. Due to injuries to one of the Big Five of the year before, Coach Shipley was forced to develop new forwards and to shift his old combination around. We may well say that he succeeded admirably in his task. The Chicks dropped the first three games in succession to Union Col- lege, 11 to 23; Rutgers, 24 to 45; and Stevens, 25 to 35; then as compensa- tion, equalled things up by capturing three in a row from Carnegie Tech, 35 to 27; St. John ' s, 47 to 18, and George Washington University, 35 to 20. Ursinus momentarily broke Delaware ' s stride by pulling a 26 to 22 victory over the Newark collegians. Delaware came back, however, and hung a 28 to 18 defeat on Bi ' ooklyn Polytechnic, conquerors of Yale. The Navy game was the big affair of the season, and little Delaware emulated the example set by the 1919-1920 team by drubbing the Midship- men 22 to 19. The game was brilliant and the Chicks go on record as the only team with a victorj- over the Naval Academy in 1921. Successive victories over Roanoke, 52 to 16; Gettysburg, 31 to 28; and Haverford, 22 to 11, brought the Delaware average up. An unfor- tunate game with V. P. I., which ended with the score tied at 17 to 17, was awarded Delaware by forfeit. The last home game with Muhlenberg proved easy for the Delaware basketeers. The Blue Hen ' s Chicks next in order dropped three games away from home — Lafayette, University of Virginia, and Penn taking the measure of the Delaware squad. And so ended another season, not perhaps replete with triumphs, but full of the Delaware spirit to surmount obstacles and fight to the bitter end.

BLUE HEN Captain Phil Marvel Baseball 1920 Manager — George Mer Nelson Captain — Phillip H. Marvel Coach— K. B. Shipley A great team ! This seemed to be the consensus of opinion of all who watched the Delaware ball tossers during the season of 1920. The big Blue team, after a poor start due to adverse w-eather condition-;, soon struck its stride and swept through one of the heaviest schedules ever attempted by the athletic authorities. Don Horsey, Johnny Pier- son, Walt Ritz and Jack Work were the only men lost fi ' om the 1919 team. Thus Coach Shipley had a nucleus around which to build another " pennant winning " club. At the first call to practice about fifty men responded, eager for a berth on the squad. The coach then instituted a novel scheme of pre- liminary training. Four complete teams were organized, and for the first week, a warm series of battles were put on in an endeavor to pick out the most promising material. In this manner, each aspirant received a chance to make good his claim for a job. Team A, with several regulars in the line-up, finally won the series. Shortly after this, the coach cut the squad to eighteen men. and practice started in earnest. The opening game found Penn State as the attraction on Frazer Field. The game had hardly started before a heavy rainstorm swept the field and halted the battle, with Coach Bezdeck ' s protegees leading us at the time (9 to 2). Rothrock went bad in the second, and State put over six runs before they could be stopped. The game came to an abrupt end in the fourth and all hands made a dash for the gym. Five days later, on the 10th of April, Haverford came to Newark for a matinee attraction, and were vanquished easily by a score 4 to 2. " Dutch " Carll, our diminutive portsider, hurled eff ' ectively throughout the game, at all times holding the Main Liners safe. Kearney was also mean with his hits, letting Delaware down with five singles. Taggart featured at the bat, connecting for three solid raps. Then followed a four-game trip South. In Dixie, we met defeat at the hands of Washington and Lee, Georgetown, and Maryland State, but avoided a whitewash by beating V. M. I. 2 to 1. The lack of good solid hitting in the pinches was the most noticeable weakness. The squad was very glad to return to its home lot after such a long, tiresome trip. Two Hundred Xincteen ■yi. BLUE HEN ■ ' 1) ' ° April 30 brought us back into the ' .vinning coUimn again with a hard earned victory over North CaroHna State, 2 to 0. Rothrock shut out the visitors and allowed them only two scattered hits. Underwood and Madden starred for Delaware. Then came Stevens, at home, in which Carll turned in a win 3 to 1. Donoho ' s sensational catches in left field furnished the fielding features, while McCardell carried off " the batting honors with two single?. The big Scarlet team, from Rutgers appeared on the lawn on May 7, fresh from victories over Princeton, Dartmouth and other large colleges, and eager to tack our scalp to the collection. Coach Shipley sent Joe Roth- rock out to stop them, and Joe pitched a cai ' eful, steady game, finally emerging with the verdict 4 to 3 in twelve innings. The game developed into the old-fashioned " rock ' em and sock ' em " variety. Delaware planting a total of thirteen hits about Frazer Field, and Rutgers running a close second with eight. Delaware drew first blood right at the start, on Donoho ' s single, his steal of second, and Madden ' s one-base blow. " Bess " Carter followed with another single, but died stealing Brewer to Taliaferro. Rutgers tied it up in the fourth. One out, Taliaferro reached first on an error, stole second, and romped home on Van Orden ' s long double. The next two men died in order. From then on it was anybody ' s game, first Delaware forging ahead, and Rutgers persistently spurting enough to tie things up again. Carll relieved Rothrock in the seventh and held the visitors safe. The Blue and Gold finally brought home the bacon in the twelfth. With two down, Dantz batted for Carll and walked, and a minute later stole second. Robbins also drew a pass. Donoho took the full count of three and two, then rode a line single to center, Dantz scoring easily. " Bess " Carter. Madden and Donoho dividing eight blows between them, were the big guns on the offense. Gray Carter caught a splendid game, while Robbins, Marvel and Underwood put up great defensive games. THE PENN GAME On May 12, Delaware was entertained royally by Penn on Franklin Field, so royally in fact, that the Chicks shattered all the dope, and brought the well-known bacon back to Newark to the tune of 2 to 1. It was far the most exciting game witnessed on Franklin Field during the season. Joe Rothrock di ' ew the assignment from Coach Shipley, and went right out and pitched air-tight ball, except for a couple of wild streaks early in the game. At all times, however, he held the heavy slugging Red and Blue team in the hollow of his hand, and let them down with five widely scattered hits. This game gave Rothrock two victories over Penn in as man.v starts — no small feat, at that. Gray Carter, Delaware ' s big rangy backstop, won the old ball game single handed and unaided in the tenth by a long drive to left center which finally stopped in the shadow of Weightman Hall. The next three batters died in order, but the deed was done, and in a few minutes the game was over. S . Two Hundred Twenty Previous to Carter ' s healthy wallop, the game developed into a pitcher ' s battle between Rothrock and Strickland, Penn ' s new moundsman, with honors about even. Penn ' s only run was totally unearned, and gained solely through dai ' ing base running by Warwick, the big catcher, in the seventh. He scored all the way from second on an infield out when " Bess " Carter ' s return heave to G. Carter took a bad hop and rolled to the wall. From then on to the ninth, Delaware threatened at all times, but in the final frame, she came through with the tying tally. Donoho singled, stole second, and came all the way home, when George Madden rode a long single over second. Then came the tenth, and G. Carter ' s mighty wallop put the old ball game on ice. The game was clean and fast throughout, both teams playing errorless ball. " Mike " Underwood, former Parkside star, put up a flashy game at shortstop, and the work of Bobbins, B. Carter and Madden on the defense was also commendable. About three hundred Delaware rooters were in the stands cheering the Blue and Gold. The score : DELAWARE PENNSYLVANIA AB. R. H. PO. A. E. AB. R.

Dickinson threw a surprise into the Delaware camp by annexing the next game 6 to 4 in ten innings. Flushed by the recent victory over Penn, we were a little too confident, and were outplayed by the fast Carlisle nine. Herman pitched fine ball for Dickinson, and the heavy slugging of Weaver and Cohen put the game on ice. Delaware made a game rally in the ninth, .scoring 3 runs and tying the score, but Dickinson came through with the deciding tally in the tenth on Dein ' s single, steal of second, and an infield error. Tico Hundred Tirenty-one ■W®- BLUE HEN- f ' Then followed wins over St. Johns, Swarthmore and laryland State, all at home. " Skeets " ' Wilson won the Swarthmore game in the thirteenth, scoring Marvel with a timely single. Gray Carter played a great all-round game, holding up Joe Rothrock faultlessly. The next game found Delaware squared off against California, then on an extended trip through the East. The less said about this game the better. The Pacific Coast sluggers tore into the offerings of three Dela- ware twirlers, Carll, IMegaw and Deppe, for a total of nine runs in three innings. The game started in a steady drizzle, and it seemed impossible to finish it, but the sun came out in the fourth iind Delaware took a sting- ing defeat, the worst in years. Score 10 to 2. The 1920 season came to a close on Commencement Day, when our old rival, Haverford, journeyed to Newark for a holiday engagement. Rothrock again pitched air-tight ball and deserved a shutout. Two hits were made off his port-side hurling, while Delaware garnered seven, win- ning easily 3 to 1. " Bess " Carter leading the field with three. Captain McCardell played a whirlwind game at second base, accepting nine chances without a miscue. Fisher garnered the two hits made by Haverford, and personally conducted their lone tally across the platter. Before we close this chapter of Delaware ' s athletic history, a few words about the members of the 1920 team might be of interest. From the " Old Guard, " Captain Marvel, " Bess " Carter, Madden. McCardeli. Donoho and Taggart were saved to the team, and all six played brainy, consistent ball throughout the season. Their steadying influence upon the youngsters on the team kept the machine working smoothly, and they were always ready in the pinch. Gray Carter continued his steady dependable work behind the bat, and has developed into one of the best catchers in collegiate ranks. Two new men won their berths on the varsity this year — Mike Under- wood and Jimmy Robbins, both Wilmington boys. Mike has played semi- pro ball around the Delaware metropolis for several seasons, and on coming to Delaware found himself again cavorting around the short field in the vacancy left by the graduation of Don Horsey, and made good with a bang. " Jimmy " Robbins, the diminutive thii-d baseman, came from Wilmington High School, and went out there the first practice and started working for a job. In a few weeks he was rewarded with a varsity outfit and held down the third sack in fine style for the balance of the season. " Skeet " Wilson and " Ted " Dantz, both veterans of the 1919 season, gained place on the squad by their all-round utility, and ability to go in in a pinch and come across with the needed blow. " Skeet " is a natural infielder, and will make a strong bid for the 1921 varsity. Dantz played the role of pinch-hitter during the season, and managed to connect upon several occasions where hits were needed. Two Hundred Tuenty-tuo Joe Rothrock was the mainstay of the pitching stati ' and came through the best season of his career. " Dutch " Carll, another southpaw, turned in several wins during the season, using a slow tantalizing curve with great effect. Brandt, Deppe, ] Iagaw and Lund rounded out the well balanced pitching staff. Nutter, a Freshman, proved an able understudy to Gray Carter, and should make a valuable man.

PROSPECTUS FOR 1921 Coach Shipley has a large squad of candi- dates out on Frazer Field, preparing for the first game with Holy Cross on April 1. Last year ' s schedule looked heavy, but a glance at the following list of games compiled by Manager Anderson, discloses the fact that Delaware has certainly found hei ' self in the lime- light of college baseball.

He is a left-handed first baseman, and looks good at the bat. A brief summary of the candidates will give our readers a hasty glimpse of the team. Gray Carter, due to a severe injury to his back, was forced to give up baseball this season. His place will be taken by either Nutter or Marvel, both experienced catchers. McDonald, " Skeet " Wilson, " Mike " Underwood, Robbins, Leamy and Challenger are making bids for the infield posts, with Captain Donoho and Madden fixtures in the outfield, and Dantz, Deppe and several others trying for the odd post. Among the pitchers, Joe Rothrock, Carll, and Collins are all southpaws and veterans of many a battle. Ramsay, Brandt, and Magaw show up well among the right handers. The whole University wishes Coach Shipley and his pupils the full measure of success, and hopes that the team will again place Delaware on the athletic map.

BLUE HEN- D ' ' Track J 9 20 Harry Loose, Captain 1920 INTERSCHOLASTICS The seventh annual Inter-Scholastic Track and Field Meet was marred by rain and chilly weather. Notwithstanding the disagreeable conditions of the track three records were smashed. This is the first year that entries have been divided into three classes. The new division was necessitated by the entrance of Mercersburg, Perki- omen and Mt. St. Joseph College in addition to the Jacob Tome Institute and Baltimore Polytechnic Institute. In Class I, Mercersburg and Tome had a royal battle for first honors which was not decided until the final one-mile relay had been run. The Mercersburg quartet proved too speedy for the Tome four and romped away with the event; thus winning the meet with 4 ' .; point victory over Tome. In Class II Frankford High and Baltimore Friends had a dual meet for first and second places. These two teams completely outclassed the other entries, leaving only 22 points to be distributed between the other schools. In Class III Newark won, due to the all-round track and field work of Doc Steele. Middletown and Georgetown, however, showed up well and landed 19 ' and 13 ' i points respectively. The following are the points made by the competing schools : CLASS I POINTS 1. Mercersburg Academy 34 ' 1 2. Jacob Tome Institute 303 3. Perkiomen School 20 4. Baltimore Polytechnic Institute 16 5.

The figures do not tell half of the story, however, for the lower classmen were not pushed anywhere near their limit — in fact they romped away with the meet. PENN RELAYS The Delaware track team made the most creditable showing in years at the Penn Relay Carnival. The first team, entered in the Middle States championship event, finished a close third in record-breaking time. Rutgers won in the fast time of 3 minutes 26 4 5 seconds; Lafayette nosed out Delaware by a few scant inches. The race was one of the most thrilling of the day. The team composed of Tebo, Pitman, Smith and Harmer are the fastest that has ever represented Delaware. Harmer ran his quarter in 50 2 5 seconds, picking up 5 yards on Crawford, the Lafayette star runner. In this event Delaware competed against Rutgers, Lafayette, Dickin- son, Swarthmore, Lehigh, Haverford, New York University, Washington and Jefferson, Muhlenberg and Lebanon Valley. Delaware ' s time was 3 minutes 29 2 5 seconds. The second Blue and Gold team, composed of McMullen, Wilson, Kite and Lilly, ran in the class college relay and finished a close fourth. Stevens placed first; City College and New York, second; and Rens- selaer, third. All four teams ran very close, only a few yards separating the first and fourth man. The time of the race was 3 minutes 34 2 5 seconds. Two Hundred Thiriij-one 1 .sf i. BLUE HEN= ' , In the field events in which our men were placed in competition with the greatest athletes of the country, we made a creditable showing. Humphries placed sixth in the javelin throw with a heave of 144 feet 7 ' J inches. Captain Loose made a creditable showing in the discus throw, and Tom McDonnell ' s pole vaulting was of the highest merit. Penn Relay Squad DELAWARE— SWARTHMORE : IEET For the first time in a number of years Delaware put a crimp in Swarthmore ' s string of track victories by the score of 67 to 59. Four records were smashed sky high by Delaware men. New records were established in the discus throw, iavelin throw, 440-vard dash and 220-yard dash. New records were established by the following men : Gray Carter heaved the discus 126 feet 2 inches ; Fred Harmer clipped off ' 2 second from the record for the 440-yard dash in the fast time of 52 seconds; Ed Pitman smashed the 220-yard dash record by 1 ' 5 second, doing it in 23 seconds flat; Al Humphries threw the javelin 164 feet 9 inches, better- ing the record by 21 feet 11 inches. Too much praise cannot be given the Blue and Gold team for this splendid victory. DELAWARE VS. HAVERFORD The Delaware trackmen completely outclassed the Haverford track- men in every event except three, winning by a score of 73 to 39. Two records were broken in this meet. Dwight Tebo clipped off 2 5 second in the 220-yard dash, in the record time of 22 3, 5 secon ds ; Joe Wilson jogged two miles in the record time of 10 minutes 25 seconds.

Rutgers won the eighth annual track and field championship of the Middle States Collegiate Athletic Conference after a close race with Lafay- ette. The victory came by the close margin of 30i i to 30 points with New York University third with 20 points and Delaware fourth with 19. In this track meet the Blue and Gold track team ably demonstrated that it was one of the strongest in the colleges of the East. Among the Blue and Gold performers, Harmer, Captain Loose, McDonnell and Wilson were the stars. POINTS 1. Rutgers 31 ' . 2. Lafayette 31 3. New York University 20 4. Delaware 19 5. Stevens 12 , 6.

DELAWARE Delaware ' s record breaking track team kept up its fast pace by defeat- ing Johns Hopkins by the score of 64 to 48. The meet was closely con- tested throughout, and ideal weather made the track fast. Five Delaware records went by the boards. " Mike " Wilson showed wonderful endurance and ability by breaking the one-mile and two-mile records, both formerly held by himself. He romped home with the mile in 4 minutes and 41 seconds and within a half hour won the two-mile race in 10 minutes and 20 seconds. In winning the mile race, Wilson decided the meet as this race was the turning point of the meet. Pitman demonstrated his fleetness by sprinting the 220-yard dash in 22 seconds. This is one of Delaware ' s best records and will undoubtedly stand many years of competition before it goes by the board. Tom McDonnell, not to be outdone, vaulted 11 feet 7j inches, a new record for Delaware. Fred Harmer gained more glory for him.self by again lowering his record in the 440-yard dash to 51 3 5 seconds. Too much credit cannot be given to the track men for their stellar performance in this meet, nor can too much praise be given Coach " Jimmie " Le Cato for his masterly training of the squad. MUHLENBURG VS. DELAWARE With adver.se weather conditions, Delaware completely outclassed Muhlenberg in an interesting track and field meet. Despite a flooded track, the Blue and Gold men made fairly good time. Delaware, by win- ning this meet, closed the most successful season in its history, winning all the dual meets.

Cross-Country, 1919 Cross-Country, 1920 Tico Hundred Thirty-four CROSS-COUNTRY 1919 Coach Le Cato made a call for cross-country in the fall of 1919. Sev- eral men responded to the call. Delaware had a nucleus for a good team in Captain Mike Wilson, former star distance runner at West Philadelphia High School and Perkiomen, and several veteran track men. Several meets were scheduled but for one reason or another all but one were cancelled. On November 1, Muhlenberg met Delaware on our home course. The race ended with the Blue and Gold harriers winning by the score of 21 to 34. The first five men finishing for Delaware were as follows : Captain Mike Wilson, 1st ; Hoey, 3rd ; Christfield, 4th ; Cooch, 6th; and Waples, 7th. Wilson set a record of 30 minutes and 16 seconds for the five and one-eighth mile course. The varsity " D " was awarded to the following men: Captain Wilson, Hoey, Christfield, Cooch and Waples. CROSS-COUNTRY 1920 Cross-country is growing more popular every year at Delaware. Man- ager Waples scheduled three meets for the 1920 season with Rutgers, Johns Hopkins and the University of Maryland. An abundance of material responded to Coach Le Cato ' s call for candidates. Five letter men were back from the previous year ; namely. Captain Mike Wilson, Hoey, Cooch, Christfield and Waples. In addition to those mentioned were Booth, McMullen, Smith, Bunten, Fouracre and Moulds. The annual handicap cross-country meet was held on October 29. It was run over the regular course of five and one-eighth miles. The feature of the meet was the winning of the race by McMullen who was a new man at the game. " Man of War " Booth finished second and proved to be the star of the meet by breaking " Mike " Wilson ' s old record by 1 minute and 7 seconds. Third place went to Christfield. Cooch came in fourth closely followed by Bunten and Wilson. By winning the race Booth received three medals, one for best time, one for breaking the record, and one for second place.

BLUE HEN - D , Track 1920 Track, as never before, is enjoying a prosperous season at Delaware. The indoor season has just closed with the following results: First Regiment Indoor Games, Philadelphia, February 15. 1921. — In this meet the relay team consisting of Lilly, Pitman, Smith and HaiTner scored third place in the handicap relay (one mile), Delaware was allowed only five yards on the crack Meadowbrook team. Booth scored second in the mile handicap. Johns Hopkins Fifth Regiment Gaynes, Baltimore, February 26, 1921. — Here Booth starred, winning second place in the open handicap mile. Hisler, Middle Atlantic Cross-Country Champion, won only due to his 30-yard handicap. Booth starting from scratch defeated the pick of col- legiate milers, including Crawford, of Lafayette, Romig, of Penn State, and a host of others. The relay team was defeated by Rutgers in a spirited race. Lilly. Fouracre, Pitman and Harmer ran in the order mentioned. Second Annual Catholic University Games, March 3, 1921. — At these games the team was very successful. Booth won the mile and half-mile races ; Harmer the Quarter, and the relay team consisting of Lilly. Fouracre, Pitman and Harmer defeated Galludet in a one-mile race.

BLUE HEN-ai i ' r. enms 1920 The season of 1920 marked a new era in tennis at Delaware College when a schedule of ten hard matches were arranged by Manager Mc ' horter. The success of the season is not to be judged entirely by the number of matches won and lost. Delaware faced the hardest schedule in its tennis history and acquitted itself creditably. What was lacking in facilities, and there was much lacking, was amply compensated for by the vigor and enthusiasm of the players, and the interest of the coach. A score or more men reported to Coach Dutton when he issued the call for indoor practice, about the middle of March. Later in the season the squad was cut down so that it consisted of Captain Hortv, J. W. Olcott, B. R. Challenger, J. F. Challenger, C. W. Lynch, P. K. Monaghan, W. R. Triggs and J. F. McWhorter. Horty, the two Challengers, and Olcott, represented Delaware in the majority of the matches. Lynch played in the Stevens match. " Jimmie " Horty was the individual star for Delaware. The season opened on April 30, at Swarthraore. The team entered this match without any outdoor practice whatever, and as a result failed to win a single match. Score. Swarthmore, 6 ; Delaware, 0. The following day, Stevens came to Newark. Delaware played the fast New Jersey team to a draw, 3 to 3. The Drexel match was not played because of rain. Haverford was played on the turf courts of the ' ilmington Country Club. This closely contested match was lost to our old rivals, 4 to 2. On May 20, the Delaware " racquet wielder? " journeyed southward. Blue Ridge was met on that day, and, amid the ringing of bells, the honk- ing of automobile horns, and the gentle " razz " of the co-eds, Delaware again tasted defeat, 4 to 2. On the following day, the team played Johns Hopkins University at Homewood, Baltimore. A terrific downpour of rain called a halt to the match just as the singles were finished. At this time, Johns Hopkins was leading, 3 to 1. The disastrous Southern trip was concluded the following day when Marjiand State took the measure of the Delaware team, 4 to 2. May 29 found the team encamped at South Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, as the guests of Moravian College. Once again Delaware tasted defeat to the tune of the " jingle " numbers, 4 to 2. Inclement weather prevented the last match of the season, the St. John ' s match. The " T D T " was awarded to Captain Horty, " Woody " Olcott, Bob Challenger, Jack Challenger and Manager J. F. McWhorter. Two Hundred Forty .sfii. BLUE HEN 7. enms 1921 The 1921 tennis schedule calls for matches with Haverford, Univer- sity of Maryland, George Washington University, Moravian, Lafayette, Drexel, Johns Hopkins, and Swarthmore. The first match with the Du Pont Counti-y Club was held on April 16. With Horty and the Challenger brothers from the 1920 team, Gutowitz of the 1917 team, and Robinson and Barker, the team should make a very creditable showing under the coaching of Professor G. E. Button. During the last few years tennis has been more popular with the student body and this interest is reflected in increased competition for berths on the teams. The interest in this sport has also been increased by the slogan " athletics for all " at the University of Delaware.

BLUE HEN 1921 Class Atlhetics The fall of 1917 witnessed the appearance on the College campus of the largest collection of men ever to wear the Freshmen emblems. Need- less to say that it was only with envy that the members of the other classes gazed upon our enviable group of athletes and their massive forms. Our first adventure was the Fresh-Soph football game. The 1920 class was confident but it received the worst defeat ever handed a class team at Delaware. The score was 20 to in favor of the class of 1921. Fred Lord, " Big " Alec, Art Spaid and Johnny Peirson played the master roles. The next adventure was the inter-class basketball series, a custom inaugurated by Coach Shipley. The 1920 class, confident again, was eager for the fray, but that was all. The series resulted in a clean sweep for Captain " Sank " McCaughan ' s " Flying Five. " The members of this orig- inal four-year championship team were " Sank, " " Holt " Aikens, Peirson, Attix, Wilson and Horty. In baseball we could not win, due to the fact there was no series held. In track we were caught napping and did not figure with any degree of success. Thus ended a successful class athletic career; Freshmen, but without any peers. The Sophomore year found us in the midst of the " World War " marooned in the S. A. T. C. No football games were held, but as soon as the Kaiser quit and " Holt " Aikens was released from " K. P. " we went after the inter-class basketball series again. Fate was kind and the champion- ship came home again with hardly a struggle. We lost " Sank " but con- tinued on our winning career. In baseball, the Seniors drew first blood and won easily and eliminated us from the series. In track we also ran, game, but outclassed. Our Junior year was the result of much speculation. Wise men pre- dicted an easy victoiy for us in basketball, in fact a clean sweep for four years. By this time our fame had spread down depot road and the fair damsels braved many a chilly wind to see " Phillip, " " Tom. " " Joe " and " Honest Abe " display their wares. Like all real champions we were backed with filthy lucre from our classmates and many a time the Sophs went home without a nickel for Doc Rhodes dispensary. The Sophs gave us a close struggle, in fact, " Bill " Lilly insisted on rolling " Phil " and " Comedy " Holt on the fioor at every opportunity, but this only gave " Eagle Eye " Abe a chance to drop fouls in from the 15-foot mark and score an easy ictory in the final game of the season. In baseball, we again proved our ability and defeated the Sophomores in a heart-breaking game, 11 to 10. Previous to this game Abe Barnard submerged the Seniors by knocking a home run in the first inning with two men on base. " Bill " Anderson also pitched a fine game of ball for us. Tivo Hundred Forty-four Our Senior year found us all set for a clean-up. The first victory was only a moral one, as the Faculty with their brawn and rough tactics defeated our football team although we were mentally superior. The class basket-ball series was the climax to our four-year flight. First we defeated the Sophs 24 to 19, then the Freshmen were submerged 28 to 7. Next the Juniors hit the mat 15 to 12, and soon it was all over but the shouting. The last important game was the Freshman battle, with the first half end- ing 15 to 6 in favor of the Freshmen, and Coach Gray Carter instructing his Freshmen toilers to play it safe, we came through with a characteristic 1921 spurt and nosed them out 19 to 18. We have Abe Barnard to thank for this victory because his magnificent foul shooting won the game. This made us " Champions For Four Years. " Is it any wonder we are proud of our gold basketballs donated by the Athletic Association? The members of this immortal Senior team were : " Mike " Wilson, " Abe " Barnard, " Phil " Marvel, " Holt " Aikens, " Tom " Attix, " Jim " Horty and Willard McMullen. After the .series the Faculty challenged us and it resulted in an easy victory for us. " Shorty " Hancock, " Calculus " Preston, " Ship " and the rest realized the prowess of this great team they were playing against. This concludes our class athletic history, brief but full of fruitful victories never to be forgotten. Tivo Hundred Forty-five ■afaffl. BLUE HEN-J f a- 1922 Class Athletics 1922 entered Delaware College under peculiar conditions. The war was at its height and the College had been turned into a small military encampment. Athletics, consequently, suffered from this. So it was with the class of 1922. She suffered. Military work took precedence and our athletes could not display their prowess until late in the year, after Christ- mas, to be exact, when the S. A. T. C. was disbanded. Basketball was the first number on our athletic program. " Frankie " Wills was captain. The other members of the team were : " Skeet " Wil- son, " Buddy " Lynch, " Yonk " Challenger, " Buddy " Harper, " Joe " Roth- rock and " Munce " Keith. The team showed marked ability and gave the Sophomore class the hardest battle for supremacy. The college champion- ship was not decided until the last game, when, due to various causes, the Sophomores succeeded in defeating u-. It was a good game and the Sophs deserved to win. The laurels of 1922 were hung high in the Hall of Delaware during the spring. Our cinder strugglers overpowered the mighty upper classmen and won the inter-class field and track tournament. " Munce " Keith was the hero of the contest. The last event decided the winner and i t was our " Munce " who won the blue ribbon. Even in baseball we could not be vanquished. Our fellow collegians spoke of the " Fresh " as " some class. " We do not like to speak so highly of ourselves, but when it is considered that we. as Freshmen, won the inter-class baseball tourney, we believe there is some room for us to " use the long arm. " Those inter-class base- ball games were warmly contested. Finally, after the Juniors and Sopho- mores had been eliminated, the Senior-Freshman game resulted in a tie score. In a second game, played under trying circumstances, our team having lost its star twirler, we vanquished the wearers of the Cap and Gown, thus winning the college championship. Those v,-hc were awarded their class numerals in track were: Captain Christfield, Harper, Keith, Kavanaugh, Geoghegan, lagee, G. C. Smith and Bunten. In baseball. Captain Burbage, Lynch, Carll, Reynolds, Magee, Keith, Wilson, Challenger, Dantz, Stewart, Wills, were awarded the class insignia. Thus ended our activities, athletically, during our first year. We did well, we think, and contributed many men to the varsity squads. As Sophomores, we had a fine time, " throwing the hooks " into our " friends, the enemy, " the Freshmen class. Athletics started out with a rush, immediately upon returning from the summer vacation. But the Freshmen got the better of us in an impromptu dual meet. Suffice it, then, to say, we were " het up, " and soon went after the youngsters on the gridiron. That game was a battle. A battle, by the gods, from the time ' 96 Shorty tooted the whistle, until Freshman Murray fell on the ball in the dark and saved the day for the Fresh. The score was tied. In the last few minutes, with a defense that outshone Yale in her best stand against Harvard, we held the Freshmen o n our one-foot line for downs. Then we " booted " the ball out of danger. Two Hundred Forty-six •afai. BLUE HEN- D ' The score was 6 to 6 and, it was said, the game was the best inter- class contest ever staged on Frazer Field. Captain " Heth " Carll, the Cam- den poet, carried the team through its encounter. The other members of the esteemed eleven were : Young, Magee, Challenger, Harper, Myers, Lilly, Lynch, Hurff, Gotfigon, Chambers, Allmond, Ivory, Deppe, Repp, Daley, Ayerst and Dantz. In basketball, " Frankie " Wills still led the team and played several games, later being taken for a place on the varsity quintet. His loss caused a severe hole to be punched in the team. The loss of " Buddy " Lynch was taken care of by the addition of " Snipe " Twoes, a former Cam- den High and Drexel star. We finished second place for the season a nd gave the Juniors the only defeat during the contests. Class numerals were awarded to Twoes, Wilson, Rothrock, Keith, Harper, Ivory, Challenger and Lilly. We had excellent success in the inter-class track meet. Christfield was again cantain, and the addition of Fred Harmer and Bill Lilly proved to be the most important factors in our victoiy. Harmer jazzed around the track and leaped across the turf for about four first places, and Tom McDonnell came across with his usual first in the pole vault. Bill Lilly copped the half mile and together with Harmer, Allmond and Geoghegan, won the relay race. We were jubilant over our easy victory in this branch of the college sports. Those who were given their class letters in track were: Christfield, Harmer, Lilly, G. C. Smith, Keith. Woodrow, Magee, Harper, McDonnell, Gray Carter, Geoghegan and Allmond. " We succeeded in capturing second place in the inter-class baseball tournament. The first game with the Freshmen was ours, but we had to withstand defeat from the Juniors. Deppe took care of the box work and twirled a fine game. The loss of the game was due, more or less, to the fact that Deppe had poor support. But we can ' t dwell on this fact, because bygones are bygones. The team played ell, just as well as it could. Those who were awarded letters were : Captain Challenger, Deppe, Brewer, Harper, Magee, Keith, Twoes, Daley, Wills, Ivory, Lilly and Stewart. During our present year, the only athletic activity in which we have engaged, as a class, was basketball and the schedule for that sport was never completed. The Seniors, however, were assured of victory and we Avere assured of second place. Our team played some flashy ball at times and consisted of the following men : Captain Twoes, Wilson, Keith, Ivory, Rothrock, Lilly, Harper and Challenger. Our class activities having been chronicled, we take the greatest pride in speaking of our men who have won their varsity " D, " of whom their are many. Every man of them has given all he could to the Blue and Gold and at the same time has fought for the glory of ' 22. Two Hundred Forty-seven •jfa®.

BLUE HEN- fi ' THE DERELICTS The Derelicts is a Senior fraternity, the purpose of which is to create a spirit of good fellowship throughout the Senior class and the student body. The fraternity was founded in the spring of 1919, and its ideals have been carried on by each succeeding Senior class. Its membership is limited each year to thirteen men, chosen from the Junior class. The Juniors who are elected as members are informed of their election on the day of the annual Inter-Scholastic Track and Field Meet on Joe Frazer Field. The members are elected strictly on their merit and are judged by their general attitude toward all college affairs. Although still a young fraternity, the Derelicts has taken its place among the other college organizations and promises to play a large part in the spirit of the future Delaware. Its place of meeting and the details of its organization are known only to the members. The Derelicts seeks no recognition of its work, but is content to do its best toward the furtherance of a good feeling in the College. Two Hundred Sixty-eight ml m The Last Word THE task is finished. The work, though tedious at times, has been a pleasure. Although we have done our best, the Annual is not a masterpiece, but rep- resents the ability of a few college students who have attempted to preserve precious memories of the many blessings, trials and victories enjoyed at the expense of our " Dear Alma Mater. " Like all great works, the lot fell on a very few and the cross has been borne without a murmur. To William T. Anderson we owe thanks for his service on the editorial staff and for the successful advertising campaign. We are indebted to Ira K. Steele for his many hours of work on detail, and to Arthur Spaid and Florian Deppe for their fine art sketches. To T. W. Holland we are also indebted for his untiring efforts in assisting with the editorial work. This dissertation would not be complete if we did not mention the excellent workman- .ship of the engravers, Gatchell and Manning, the fine craftsmanship of the Central Press, and the photographic work of Gilbert and Bacon. Last but not least, we w ' ish to thank the many advertisers and subscribers who have helped us to perpetuate the reminiscences of our four years of college and university life by their financial support. —The Editors.

Yet every dentist in 1 America has all the patients he can properly 1 attend, and the continually increasing interest in § dentistry, with greater appreciation of the value 1 of dentistry- in preserving health and preventing 1 disease, is bringing people to the dentist ' s office = in ever increasing numbers. 1 More dentists are needed.

Yet it is a tragedy which has its high points, its glory, its moments of supreme happiness. When first I met the King of the Campus, he was a callow- thing — verdant and free from guile — yet he developed from his puppyhood. He lived and he fought; fought his natural enemies, the Sophomores, and his unnatural enemies, the Faculty. . nd as he fought he grew; growing, he learned. When the Hunting Moon came the King was at his prime. He had lived through the mid-winter onslaughts of the Faculty; he had beaten ofl " the attacks of the Sophs.

Long live the King, the King is dead! iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiim XXXVIII giiiiiniiiiiiiMiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii I Greetings To Old Delaware | S In tlie opinion (if THK F.
