H .MJ)I Cf,.coue UPUL S55.0I To Professor Frank Byers Bomberger. In dedicaling tliis vnkime of the Reveille to Professor Frank B. Bomberger, we feel that we are conveying to him an example of the appreciation of tlie student hodv for his many acts of consideration for them. P ' irst: — As a friend he has lieen ever ready to stand for and sym])athize with the ideals of student life. Second: — As a teacher, he has ]ilanted the enthusi- asm he entertains for his work in our hearts and made his assignment of work a pleasure rather than a task. Third: — As an Alumnus of our College, he stands for the possibilities within the reach of all who are wil- ling to spend and be spent in the attainment of i leals. Vet in earlv life, his shadow still falling west, he has reajied many of the honors v hich are usually harvested at maturer vears. We are ] roud of his It is worthy of mention. Born June 9, 1S75, he com])leted the public school course and attended the High vSchool at Hagerstown. Md. Entered the M. A. C. September 15, 1891. Grad- uated with honors June 1894. Assistant in Chemistry at M. A. C. 1894-1897. Studied Law and was admitted to the Bar in Washington County, May 1898. As- sistant in English and Civics 1897-1899. Course at Cornell 1900. Chair of English and Civics l gg- c)o ■ A historv which should be a living insjiiration for every student conversant with its facts. We trust that our record of College life, as slu)wn in this annual, may not be unworthy of the association it creates for itself in this announcement of its dedica- tion. The fruition of this hope is all the recompense we ask for the labors and trials incident to its ])re]iaration. To Cadmus, the Phoenician, Who Invented Books. Oh, Cadmus, Tom Carlyle declares we owe a debt to you, And when we think of what you ' ve wrought perhaps we really do ; But when you first invented books we ' re sure you did not see The woes you ' d bring upon the boys who write the Reveille. Now, Cadmus, if we really thought you knew about the scrape You ' d gotten us into, we ' d want to take you by the nape Of your old neck ( a metaphor ) and give you such a kick You ' d wish you ' d never dreamt of books, you ' d be so awful sick. In your day, Cadmus, don ' t you see, way back there in the ages, The best book that you ever wrote had not a dozen pages ; There were no ads. to bother you, no tardy contributions. No printers then to make mistakes, no modern institutions. But now ten thousand million things the editors have to do Before a book like Reveille is more than half-way through ; A hundred trips to Baltimore, to Washington the same. Until from chasing round the earth the editors are lame. And then the contributions — ah, no Moslem on his knees Ere prayed so hard to Allah as we have to pray for these ; And all we get is promises, or very little more. And half of what is written — well, we have to write it o ' er. We hunt around for pictures, and for poems advertise. And for an old moss-covered joke we gladly give a prize ; And when we think our work is done, and start to say " Amen, " We find a hundred thousand things we have to do again. And thus we work from morn to night, from night to early morn, Until we wish that we were dead, or never had been born. So, Cadmus, why we ' re blaming you ' tis very plain to see. For if yo ' jfi,5Jj ir €«ted books we ' d have no Reveille. i. — Editors. Cditori .l Boewrd. Athletic! . Emmons B. Dinbar. Rossburg Club. J. Marsh. Matthews »( »f »« V Prkston L.

We were not so fortunate as previous Editors in having among us such poetic and humorous ability, but we dare say that if you take into account the fact that we are not autliors or poets, yon will say that we have a book that is, at least, worthy of criticism. We wish to thank our friends for the sketches and help that they have contributed, and we hope that while reading our Reveille they may see something which will make them feel proud that their names are in such a book. We wish it understood that this book goes forth to its friends with good-will towards all and malice toward none. We have endeavored to treat all alike — to spare none. If we have offended any one, in an - manner, we are truly sorry, and can only humbly beg pardon in advance for the offence. Hoping that a perusal of the following pages will be of .some interest to those for whom they are prepared, our friends, and that their contents may add something to the laurels won by the six preceding volumes, we sub.scribe ourselves. The Bo. rd of Editors. §) §3 §) §3 §3 .9 The State of Maryland and its Agricultural College. Thos. Humphreys Spence, ' ice-Presidait. WKRI ' l an - citizen of Maryland asked today what institution is doing most to foster the general pro- gress and prosperity of our coinnion- wealth, he would probably, if a man of intelligence, and without bias, reply, our public school. If asked further what institution was next most essential to the wel- fare of our people as a whole, he would, if well informed, reply, " The Agricul- tural College " . Unfortunately, however, the average citizen of Mary- land is not familiar with the aims and achievements of his State College; is ignorant of its resources for good, and knows not the benefits it is actually conferring, and. inasmuch as those involved in its management are loth to parade the success of their own efforts, and moreover because some individuals, prompted manifestly by malice, or laljoring under a misguided patriotism born of ignor- ance, have with more zeal than wisdom, given vent to their criticism through the medium of the public press, - many of our most intelligent citizens have been misled as to the value of the work the Agricultural College is suc- cessfully accomplishing today. A century ago the average man of property would have laughed to scorn a proposition to tax his property to raise funds wherewith to educate the offspring of his neighbor, who might be too poor to employ a private in- structor, but in the March of Progress, it has been made manifest that the best plan to reduce taxes is to pay taxes for the support of general education, for in this way, — by universal education-the whole community is elevated and made self-sustaining, and that tax which was once the burden of a few, is now a.ssessed upon the many, and the Commonwealth is promoted. This, as I understand it, is tlie underlying motive of our system of public education. This system may be outlined as follows: The State levies a direct tax upon all its taxpayers, and distributes the proceeds pro rata, according to population among the Counties; the County, in turn, is expected to erect and keep in repair suitable school, and supplement this State educational fund as its exigencies require. Thanks to the fact that so many of lier citizens have been placed in a way to become men of affairs, b} ' virtue of a common .school education, the State of Maryland has had a vast amount of property added to her taxable basis, and every cent expended in the cause of education has proven a most profitable in- vestment. Now the Federal Government has, in consequence of the wisdom and patriotic foresight of one of her Senators, assumed a position towards the States, precisely analogous to that of the State towards the Counties, — apparently arguing down this line. " Any system of instruction whereby a man can learn to make two blades of grass grow where one grew before, must needs cause our National Wealth to increase, and increase largely beyond the original cost of instruction. — The soil is the source of our National prosperity, hence we must develop its fer- tility to the maximum " . In accordance with this idea, the United States Government appropriates $25,000 per annum to the Agri- cultural College in every State for the specific purpose of instruction in Agriculture, and the Mechanic Arts. It pre-supposes that the State is willing to help itself, (just as our State assumes that the County will build its own .school houses), and so the appropriation is restricted to the Facilities for Instruction, along these certain lines. It is indeed a .state very much behind the times which will not provide suitable quarters to accommodate its students, educated otherwise at Government expense. And be it said to their credit, that the law-makers of most of our states have evinced their appreciation of the opportunities offered by the general goverment, by providing commodious quarters for their Agricultural Colleges. It is to be regretted that our own State, with all her thrift in commerce, with cargoes bound for every port; with all her pre-eminence in Manufactures, with her products in demand in every quarter of the globe, has rested supinely on her oars, and allowed herself to be out- stripped by her sister States in Agricultural progress; and her neglect of her Agricultural College is a part of the unwisdom of this policy. Our state though, relatively speaking, limited in area, is unique in the variety of her natural resources. There is scarcely a State East of the Missis.sippi, and North of the Carolinas which may not find its counter- part in soil, climate and productions in some sections of Maryland; yet in Maryland the opportunities offered to compete with these states, are for the most part over- looked. Where intelligent and scientific methods have been practiced, we have seen that Maryland can vie with Minnesota in wheat, with Illinois in corn, with Virginia in tobacco, with New York in apples, with Delaware in peaches and with Ohio in stock, and with New Jersey in vegetables. Those who are succeeding in these respective specialties are working along modern scientific lines, and it is in this Modern Scientific Agriculture that instruction is being offered at our Agricultural College today! With the power that knowledge gives, the hundreds of abandoned farms in our State can be reclaimed and made to blossom like the rose; millions of dollars could therebv be added to our taxable basis, and Maryland would assume her true place among the states as the " Garden of the East " . This was the motive which inspired those generous citizens of Maryland in 1859, to contribute of their wealth and land to organize an Agricultural College, — the second of its kind in this Continent; and it was to foster this patriotic enterprise that the Federal Government by Act of Congress, gave a substantial income to our College. If you would promote the Commonwealth, you must encourage its greatest bulwark, Agriculture; if you would encourage agriculture, you must put it in the power of the young farmer to improve his condition, and add to the knowledge acquired by his forefathers. Let the State of Maryland realize, and realize at once, that nearly every acre within her borders maj be made to teem with abundant harvests, if with patience her farmers assume the task of reclaiming her abandoned acres, by employing intelligent and up-to-date methods; let the farmers of Maryland know that their .sons can receive no richer heritage than a knowledge of how to improve the soil; let them insist that the State, for support they pay taxes, divert at least a tithe to enhance the Agricultural wealth of the State, and let this aid be granted to the Agricultural College, not at the request of the Board of Tru.stees, but rather on the demand of the Agriculturists of the State for what of right reverts to them, — then we hhall see the consummation of that object so devoutly desired, — the farmer ' s son looking forward not to the time when he can escape from the farm to go to the city to be motorman, bookkeeper, hired man or what not, with all the temptations and unhealthful en- vironments that such a life offers; but, to the time when having equipped himself with the requisite knowledge at the Marylai-.d Agricultural College, he can take his place on the farm as a skilled agriculturist, and derive from kind Mother Earth that wealth which she will always liountifully supply to those who use her kindly, and KNOW HOW to treat her well.

" Music is well said to be the speech of Angels. " — Carlyle. Alias " Tom Hot. " — Born at Rockville, Montgomery County, May 26th, 1880. His early education was obtained at the Rockville Academy, entering the Sopho- more class of the M. A. C. in 1900, he has since been a prominent member of the famous class of 1903. At an early age he manifested a strong desire for the ministry, which has never ceased to grow. He was elected first president of the present Y. M. C. A. and is serving a second term. In literary work he has made a marked success, and as a debater he has no equal in college. Mr. Bouic has a decided talent for music and nature has provided him with a great voice and strong lungs with which at almost any hour, day or night, he causes the halls to echo and re-echo, rousing the mournful and discour- aged from their solitude and putting new energy into the slothful. He distinguished himself in football last fall, having made first team and played right guard in several of the hardest games. While at College he has been noted for doing whatever he thinks best, no matter what others say and think, so we all feel positive that if Tom ever gets up against " the real thing " in the world he will surely be a hard man to down. C. N. BOUIC. 18 HORATIO KNIGHT BRADFORD, 2nd Lieutenant U. S. A. Vancouver. Upon his wit doth earthly honor wait And vitiue stoops and trembles at his frown. " — Cymbeline- H. K. BRADFORD. It gives US great pleasure to introduce to the kind reader Lieut. H. K. Bradford, of the U. S. Army, wliose picture is seen on this page. Mr. Bradford was once a student of the M. A. C, but on receiving the appointment to the army he left in the beginning of liis Senior year, 1902-1903. The Battalion of Cadets feel proud that one should have been chosen from their little band to .serve as one of our nation ' s protectors. His classmates miss him very much for his help in class matters and also in our annual was very much needed, and, indeed, could our book show some of his wit and humor, we know that it would appear better in the eyes of its critics. Mr. Bradford, like the rest of his classmates, had a very soft spot for the ladies, and his Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights were very seldom spent at college, but " crasy some cozy corner, " or, " (ozy in .some a-asy corner, " (it was hard to tell ), — in various Washington parlors. The class of 1903 and the student body extend to him their best wishes, and hope that if it should fall his lot to fight for his country, that his cour- age and manliness will be of the same sort as that exhibited by him while in the midst of us. 19 GEORGE WILSON CAIRNES, 2nd Lieutenant Co.

" The subject of the sketch was born at Jarrettsville, July 29th, 1882; attended the Academy at this place until he had almost finished the eighth grade, after which he applied himself diligently on his father ' s farm. In the fall of 1898 he entered the Freshman class of the M. A. C. He is about five feet eight inches high, very slender, noted for his physical strength, a man of extraordinary determination, very hard to discourage, and seldom speaks, unless he has something to .say that is deserving of the hearer ' s attention. As a commissioned officer he is liked by the student body and is held in the best of esteem by his company. He has been an industrious student in the Mechanical Department and has stopped at nothing but success. He has been an active worker in the Y. M. C. A., holding offices for the last two years. He is a musician, and is noted for his deep baritone voice, which holds the same under all conditions. G. W. CAIRNES. 20 MANUEL ALVEREZ CALDERON, A. B Lima. MECHANICAL ENGINEERING. " A man he seems of cheerful yesterdays And confident tomorrows. " — Wordsworth. U. A. CALDERON. Mr. Calderoii was born in Lima, Peru, October 5th, 1880. He attended the public .schools of Lima, and afterwards entered the Engineering College at that place, graduating with a degree of A. B. In the fall of 1900, wishing to pursue his studies further, and in research of a higher institution of learn- ing, he was directed to the Mar dand Agricultural College and entered the Sophomore Class of that institution where he remained for one year, at the expiration of which he took up his studies at Cornell University. But he found the climate, so far north, too cold for him, so he returned to us about the middle of the year and resumed his work with the Junior Class. He is a hard worker, giving but little time to anything else except his studies, often making six days in the week, and he will undoubtedly make his mark ill the world. Mr. Calderon is an advocate of peace and not of war, so he has never taken up military science. 21 JOHN POUDER COLLIER, Esq Ellicott City. MECHANICAL ENGINEERING.

He moved to Ellicott City at the tender age of 2 years. He attended the public schools of Ellicott City and there received his primary education which was carried to a higher plane in Baltimore City College. He entered the Freshman Class of the M. A. C. in the Fall of ' 99. Mr. Collier is an original man, always having new views, and never failing to express them. He is ahso a politician, and although greatly out- numbered yet his voice is always heard in debate, and he never getswrathy when the boys fail to agree with him, his predictions as to the results of various elections are taken as first-class types. " Poodle " will ever be remembered by his classmates for his innumerable feasts. A great social man he is ; never been known to spend Sunday at the College, alwaj-s having engagements for Sunda) ' dinners, and grave things are suspected of him by his actions when returning to College. John ' s latest hobby is baseball, of which he talks constantly, and is already pre- pared to give any one the outcome of the present teams. r COLLIER EMMONS BURDETTE DUNBAR, 1st Lieutenant, Co. " C.

At a very tender age he entered the pulilic .school, where he graduated with honors. He then attended Griffith Institute, but finding that he could not get there what he wanted, decided to enter the M. A. C, his name being registered in the fall of 1900. He took up the two-years ' special Agricultural Course and graduated in the spring of 1902, receiving a certificate. He returned in the fall, 1902, to take up the regular course, so that he might receive the degree of B. S. At the present time " Doc " and " Farmer " Walls are writing a book on the " Nocturnal Perambulation, or the Exploits of the Four Agricul- turists.

He .spent his youthful days trying to grow tall ; but at the present writing has not obtained the desired result. His intellectual faculties were first developed in the public schools of Prince George County, where, by diligent application, he gained the respect of all. He entered the Freshman Class in the autumn of ' 99, selecting the mechanical course, which he has pursued since. His abilities as a student are well known, and as a displayer of wit, his compan- ionship is very congenial. Garner is especially evident in football, his physique being peculiarly adapted to the game, and when entrusted with the ball, he may be depended upon for a gain. He is not an extreme admirer of the fair sex, but it is safe to assume that he, like his classmates, appreciates feminine beauty and in the end will be conquered. Duley. E. F. G.

He has the distinction of having been able to talk at the early age of 11 months, and could recite the " Soldier of the Legion " at 13 months; has never lost his ability to this day, on the contrary, he has increased it at a wonderful rate. " Mattie " secured his primary education at the Kindergartens and Public schools of the Green Spring Valley. He entered the M. A.

He is very fond of the ladies, and it is rumored that he has a wonderful .sway among a number of them, from Laurel to Denver. " Why! Why!

He has been the short-stop on our team for four con.secutive years, and were he to come back for ten more the same place would be awaiting to be filled, for I dare say no amateur in the State can fill it near so well. He was captain of the team of ' 02, and during his term of office showed great abilit - as a leader. Mr. Nicholls anticipates .stage life after leaving here, and he is now trying to persuade " Farmer " Walls to go out on the road with him. They will will be termed " The Two Min.strels from the Farm.

He was born in the quaint and historic town of Frederick, on the twenty- third day of November, 1883. After attending Frederick College, he gradu- ated from Frederick High School, class ' 99. In the fall of 1900 he entered the illustrious class of 1903 of the M. A. C. His industry, ability and ster- ling qualities soon placed him among the first in his class, and he has ever since occupied a position of honor in both scholarship and military work. At the same time the ladies have claimed no small .share of his attention. For them he always has a sweet .smile and a pleasant word, in fact he has been accused of being a " heart smasher, " and it has been rumored that .sev- eral breach-of-promise suits have been threatened.

He entered the venerable class of 1903 at its birth, September, ' 99, and has remained a star member since. The events of his famous college career of most note occurred in his Senior year. He has the reputation of having an extremely soft spot in his heart for the girls.

AN it be possible that four years have passed since, as trembling Freshmen, we first got a glimpse of the massive grey building frowning on us from its exalted position and directing its numerous win- dows at us like so many threatening eyes? It is needless to relate the many vicissitudes which we underwent as Freshmen. Time passed, as time will, waiting for no man, and ere long, num- erous insurmountable barriers loomed up in our path: they were the examinations, which the Freshman dreads hardly less than he does the unrelenting Sophomore, the terror of his dreams. Though we were numerous (thirty-eight in all,) we were successful. Sports, such as foot- ball and base-ball, came to vary the monotony and .soon we were conscious that our fondest hopes were maturing, that of being ' ' old boys ' ' and advancing to the Sophomore class, which the vast majority of the class realized at the close of the session. Great was our joy when on that eventful evening in the month of June we were adorned with the title of Sophomore; no longer were we to be the timid Freshman groping his way cautiously, but the haughty Sophomore. Every member of the class left for home with a light heart, because when he should return, he would be one year nearer the hoped-for goal. The vacation passed quickl}-, as vacations always do, notwithstanding the contrary during College days. But when the time for a.ssembling arrived, not all the mem- bers of the previous year returned, but we were favored with the entrance of .several new members, some of whom were destined to remain with us until the end. However, our ranks were depleted to some extent and only twentj ' - .seven resolved them.selves to sophomore studies. We felt better adapted to our surroundings, for although our studies were more difficult, yet we were spurred on by hope and ambition: — hope of completing the prescribed 32 course at the Institution, and ambition — directed towards obtaining higher education and the coveted prize, which would serve us to so good a purpose during our Hves. Ties of friendship were strengthened both towards our college home and our classmates. This year our class was well represented in athletics, having six mem- bers on the foot-ball team. Soon the Thanksgiving holidays came and we went home to enjoy the festivities of that day, returning to begin preparations for our first examinations as Sophomores. The great majority passed and we went home for the Christmas holidays to recup- erate after the trying ordeal. We soon returned to study but our spirits were downcast by the departure of our President, who had served the class in that capacity for tlLf ee years. However, we resolved to take the misfor- tune in a stoical manner and continued our studies with unabated energy. The month of February was spent in preparation for participation in the Inaugural parade, but great was the disappointment of the entire corps of cadets when we were pre -ented from taking part on account of inclement weather. Just before the Ea.ster holidays some of us were doomed to another disappointment, when we were prevented from undertaking our Southern base-ball trip. The was represented by four members on the base-ball team, who upheld their positions with credit. We had a much longer holiday than usual, so all returned in happy spirits, but were somewhat surprised to find that examinations were to be resumed. The end of the session was fast approaching and ere we realized it our Sophomore burden was thrown from our shoulders, and we began the vacation with the hope of returning as Juniors. After the vacation, which passed as a watch in the night, we returned to resume our studies, feeling that we had been well repaid for our labor of the last two years, and now stood at the threshold of the Senior class. But not our full quota returned to resume the duties and responsibilities of Juniors, to our regret we readily dis- cerned that there were but twelve. We supplied our usual number of men both for foot-ball and base-ball, our class being honored with the captains of both teams. After the Christmas holidays there was an addition to the class of 1903 by the advent of an old last-year boy. This year passed much more quickly than the previous years, because our privileges were greater and our studies less arduous. We were bles.sed with good fortune in ac- complishing our work successfully and ere we knew it the door of the Senior class stood open in our face, and in the eventful month of June we .stood prepared to enter, which event occurred after the final examinations. It was with determination that we resolved to take upon ourselves the duties and responsibilities of a Senior class, and to raise the standard above the mark to which it had attained on previous occasions. For the last time at old M. A. C. we entered upon another .session. All of the expected class did not report for duty, which was much to our regret. As we were now cadet officers, the earlier part of the session was consumed in organizing and disciplining the cadet battalion. We had not ad- vanced far into the .scholastic year before we were deprived of another member. After the Christmas holi- 33 days we returned with pleasure to our task, et with a partial regret that ere another festive season should re- turn we should not be students at M. A. C, but alumni, widely separated, perhaps. Returning with us was one of our former classmates, who had left the previous year, but with the prospect of returning, and this addition raised our class to the present number, twelve. This year, of course, is the jewel of our college days, the height of our educational ambition — in it we realize the midnight dreams of our Freshman year, the hopes of our other years, when failures and misfortunes seemed as demons besetting the path and determined to frustrate our valiant attempts at success. As an organization, a combination of intellects not separate, but each united, we have piloted our college affairs to the satisfaction of all concerned. The class has inaugurated several new features, no- ticeably in the social line, where we have increased the number of dances given, and with apparent success. As the executive authority ' appertaining to student organiza- tions lies with the Senior class, so we have striven to the best of our ability to surpass that standard which had al- ready been .set. Let the student body render the verdict. Tonight w e stand before you the Senior class, pre- paratory to bidding its last adieu to its Alma Mater, and each member is firm in the resolve to exert himself to the utmost to make his life a success; to make himself a credit to his Ahna Mater, and his country, and to overcome, as far as pcssible, all the obstacles scattered throughout the path of life. 34 WAKE AND CALL ME EARLY. FELLOWS. (Apologies to Tennyson.) Wake and call me early, fellows, call me early, do you hear? Tomorrow ' ll be the happiest day I ' ve had for many a year — For many a, many a year, boys, the merriest day, you see, For I ' ll read the Reveille then, boys, the College Reveille. There ' s many a paper and book that ' s good, but none can touch this one There ' s the Hyattsville Independent and the Baltimore Daily Sun- — But none so fine as Reveille, no other half so bright — So wake and call me early, boys, the gas will give me light. I sleep so sound at night, boys, that I shall never wake. If you do not poke me in the ribs, or give me quite a shake ; And the Reveille will be on hand before the break of day — I must get up and read it, boys, you see I can ' t delay. As I came up the college walk whom think you I should see But the Editors gathered in a bunch beneath a maple tree ; They told me on the quiet that the Reveille is done, And would be shining in our rooms before tomorrow ' s sun. The Editors say the book is great, the contents extra fine — I really now can hardly wait to get a squint at mine ; So wake and call me early, boys, just prod me with a gun — Or baste me with a bed-slat, boys, — I must be up by sun. 35 The Class Prophecy. NE day during the year 1935, as I was experimenting in the lab- oratory of my grandfather, and while I was nervously watching the result of a marvelous combination of chemicals, my curiosity was aroused to examine some of the time-worn documents, now thoroughly covered with dust and enveloped in spider-webs. Stealthily I removed them, pack by pack, until I had emptied the cabinet of its contents. My attention was especially directed toward a brown, time-worn parchment of ye olden days, the writing on which had become almost entirely obliterated, and it was with great difficulty that I was able to interpret it. I immediately perceived that the parchment was not only old, but that the formula was one promulgated by some pioneer chemist. As far as I was able to discern, it read as follows : — " Take two ounces of incensium soranium and add three grains of acre cogitatio. On combination they produce a volatile substance, which is highly recom- mended for mental pacification. " While removing the papers, I had discovered sever- al jars ; the contents of wliich were unknown to me, as they had no labels attached to them. Now, although I had the formula, I was entirely at a loss where to find the ingredients in order to perform the experiment ; but out of continued curiosity I determined to make myself acquainted with the contents of the jars ; .so immediately set to work to open them. Gradually, to my unyielding efforts, the seals of the jars were removed, and, to my great delight, I found the labels within the jars. After considerable confusion, I finally perceived that one jar contained incensium somnium and the other acre cogitatio. As these compounds were entirely unknown to me, it was after considerable hesitation that I resolved to perform the experiment. Slowly and cautiously I mixed the two substances, and as a result of the combination, a dense green vapor was evolved, and, despite all precau- tions, I inhaled some of the fumes. Immediately I be- gan to lose consciousness, exert myself as I would, I was rapidly becoming the victim of this narcotic. While under the infiuence of this substance, I en- tered a spacious room, elegantly furnished and richh- hung with tapestries, and, to my amazement, saw a per- .son attired in gorgeous raiment seated by a table in the center of the room. He was Prospero, the prince of destiny. On perceiving this, I made known mj- desire of learning the history of my class-mates of 1903. He readily assented to make me acquainted with all of the important events which had visited the Class of 1903 since its graduation. Approaching a of enor- 36 iiioiis proportions and most exquisite design, lie opened the doors and laid bare to view many rows of books. These, he said, contained records of all the college classes that had ever been graduated. Glancing along the var- ious rows of books, with an evident look of satisfaction, he rested his attention on a heavilj " bound green book. Removing it, he returned to his seat, where he opened it. He said for convenience sake he would read them in alphabetical order, beginning with C. N. BOUIC. After graduation Bouic studied law at the Col- umbian Universit) ' , and on entering the practice of his profession became remarkably successful. His ambition so tending, he entered the political field, where his promotion was rapid, for after serving his fellow cit- izens in various responsible positions, in both county and state, he was appointed to the United States Senate. He is a most active member and renowned throughout the whole country ' . His success was due, to a great extent, to his integrit}-, his sense of honor and high moral char- acter. He is frequently known to hold Y. M. C. A. meetings in the Senate Chamber, especially instructing the younger members of that body. Although automo- biles and flying machines are in a perfected state, Bouic still retains the cherished treasures of his youth, and for that reason is conspicuous driving down Pennsylvania Avenue behind two spirited steeds. Little Norman, Jr., may often be seen driving his diminutive horses, ' irgil, Cicero, Tacitus and Terence, to the great satisfaction of his father. Bouic is also a noted writer, having gained prominence in the literary world by his " How to Be- come vSucce.ssful in Politics without Bribery, " " Religion the Necessary Part of a Man, " etc. Cr. W. CAIRNE.S. Cairnes chose as his profession that of teaching mechanics, being now professor of mechanical engineer- ing in the ITniversity of Alaska. His fondness for high regions was previously demonstrated by his habitation of the top hall at M. A. C. His success has been most gratifying because of his perseverance in sol- ving mechanical problems, his study hours occupying so much time that it is customar} ' for him to study b}- the midnight sun. R ' ibbit, as he is familiarly known, is often kicked up sitting in the gold fields, and fired at by critics of his mechanical methods. His tendency is not toward literary productions, for that reason we do not find uni- versal forms of his intellect. In Alaska he has found that the environments neces.sitate a revision of Boyle ' s Law, his formula being — Cairnes x Constance - Es- quimo girl. As the magician scanned the lines, reading the great renown of my class-mates, I saw his face light up with emotion, for, he said, it gave him great pleasure in his leisure hours to read the successes of the various cla.sses, but especially was he interested in M. A. C. 1903. Glancing along the lines as he read, his ej-es suddenly paused and he smiled. When doing this he said, this man Collier has performed a remarkable feat. J. p. COLI.IICR. He is now a member of the Legion of Honor of 37 France, his name having been placed there because of his renowned attainment in finding; the scjuare root of two ( " 2) -He is at present Professor of Mathematics at New Mexico State University, and from the manner in which tangents flj ' from the circumference of his head and sines beam from his ej ' es, it maj- be readily discerned that he is a mathematician of infinite ability. In obtaining his wonderful result, he manipulated all the branches of mathematics known to man, from arithmetic to calculus and graphic statics. The formula for obtaining -Tg has been published in every language known, because heretofore it had been a problem impossible of solution. It is so intricate and exhaustive that it fills a book of more than ordinary size and even the Professor of Civil Engineering perused its pages with interest. M. A. CALDERON. Calderon after his graduation returned to his plan- tation in Peru, where he is most successful in farming. He is regarded as a benefactor by his countrymen, be- cause of his having introduced modern machinery and methods, thus facilitating farming operations and min- imizing labor. Latest reports from the South American State report that Calderon is a very .strong candidate for the Presidency of his native land,. and by reason of his having filled the office of Secretary of State is eminently fitted for the position. He asserts that if he is elected, the ties of friendship which bind his country with the U nited States will be stronger than they have ever been. He still remembers his college days and his connection with old M. A. C. E. B. DUNB. R. Dunbar has had nuich beneficial experience in his varied career. Immediately after leaving college he secured a position as Horticulturist in the University of Florida, but finding teaching ill adapted to his notions of easy living, retired to his farm in New York, engaging extensively in stock-raising. He undertook in connec- tion with this vocation that of lumbering. But after several years ' mental strain in trying to guess the fluctu- ations of the market, he gave it up in disgust and returned to the ever-inspiring farm life. He has become so prosperous that he has established an office in New York city and he is known abroad as an exporter of par excellence cattle. His stately mansion o ' erlooking Lake Erie is a source of remark to the passengers on passing steamers. He has given Trusts a wide berth, not only of corporations, btit of trusting his customers. He is still fond of visiting, and during his leisure moments slips away in his private car for a few days ' visit with one of his college chums. Through his benevolence he has endowed the Chair of Agriculture in the Maryland Agri- cultural College and is keenly interested in its work. E. F. GARNER. Immediately after graduation he entered the machine .shops at Cramp ' s Shipyard, where, with diligent appli- cation and perseverance, he rapidly rose till at the present time he is Assistant Superintendent. His ability as a designer is especially known, having designed the most modern battleship of the United States Navy, which has, as is the custom, been scanned by critics, but no defect 3S can be found. His military training w hile at M. A. C. eniinentl} ' fitted him as an executive officer for directing the affairs of such an enormous plant. His corps of assistants is verj numerous, but because of his kind treatment, hold him in high esteem. He is President of the Bachelors ' Roost, a social organization in Philadel- phia, devoted to making life easy for bachelors. Up to the present time he has not become reconciled to the fair sex, whether on account of some prievious grievance or not is unknown. He makes the halls of Bachelors ' Roost resound with laughter and his smiling countenance is a source of inspiration to those deprived of a better half. He has during his spare moments compiled .several literary productions, among them, " Why a Bachelor ' s Life is Best, " and " My Book of Jokes. " R. B. MAYO. The fall after his graduation he entered the Law School of Columbia University, where he graduated with honors in 1908. He began practicing immediately in Delaware, and after showing the people of that state how far behind they were in civil law, he entered into politics and there is where he made, for him.self, a name. By his continued appeals to the people and in the court- rooms for a revelation in politics he was made the leader of his party and in 1920 he was elected to the State Senate. But while he was making such a public career there was a private life of peace and happiness awaiting him, for away down in Hyattsville there was his first and last love whom he met while at M. A. C. He had for her that sincere love that makes a true husband and a happy wife. That they were married it is needless to say, and in 1930 his wife became keeper of the Gover- nor ' s Mansion of Delaware. There Governor Mayo lived happy for four years, with nothing to worry him, except the task of keeping little Bob and Mary from scrapping. J. M. MATTHEWS. The year after receiving his sheepskin, Matthews repaired to Maryland University, where he studied law. His in.structors there immediately perceived, from his linguistic ability, that he had fitly chosen his profession and was destined to obtain a high rank. In defend- ing his clients he was most successful, as abandoning all other methods, he would immediately proceed to talk the judge and jury into his own convictions, thus from sheer exhaustion they rendered a verdict of not guilty. It is a well-known fact among his colleagues that Matthews can be rarely found in his office, but maj ' be sought in some other office, as his fondness for visiting his friends has not subsided in the least since his departure from the M. A. C. In the court-room he has often been mistaken for the judge, because of his a.ssumption of authority, both as to the decision of the court and the instruction of the jurors. His works of fiction are numerous, among them being most notable " The Endless Tongue, " " Brass Necessary for Success, " etc. S. B. NICHOLLS. Used great judgment and thinking that farm life was to be preferred to others, .settled down to tilling the soil. By his scientific methods, learned of course at Marxland Agricultural College, he has vastly improved 9 his land, so that now his is a model farm and he takes great pride in demonstrating these facts to his friends. He dispenses much hospitality and the name of Squire Nicholls is a synonym of hospitality. He found out that as a farmer has so much leisure, he could enter the political field without detriment to his crops. So he has been appointed district campaigner, thus giving him the opportunity of exercising his vocal organs. He is also a lecturer of note, being always conspicuous at farmers ' meetings and taking an active part. Nicholls has written two books on farming, which are pronounced succe.sses, namely, " How to Be a Successful Farmer Without Working " and " The lyife of Ease. " C. p. PAGE. In 1906 Page established a manufacturing plant in co-operation with his classmate, -P. L. Peach. They rapidly rose to prominence, so that now the Page and Peach Machine vShops are world renowned on account of the excellency of their products. Page is superintendent of the Draughting and Calculating Department, having special reasons for selecting the management of the Draughting Department. (3wing to the impossibility of obtaining male employees for that department, females were secured to do the tracing work, so that there are fifty of the fair sex working under the supervision of Page. It has been especially noted that the great majority of them re pair quite often to the Main Office, presumably for instructions, but the cause is unknown. Page has quite an aptitude for managing women, as his experience has been large, and it was for this reason that he was elected to preside over the Draughting Depart- ment. His ability as a mathematician is well known, he having to make all the calculations for the work being done at the plant, as well as being called upon by the laity to solve difficult original problems. It is needless to say that his correspondence is enormous having to employ two stenographers especially for the purpose of an.swering the dainty missives of his feminine admirers, p. h. PEACH. Peach, as before stated, is the other member of the Page and Peach Machine Shops. His efficiency as a machinist and manager is daily exemplified both by the products of the plant and the ease with which the executive alTairs progress. He is also a well-known lecturer, delivering forcible addresses before the students of various colleges on modern machine methods. His most notable lecture was that delivered before the class of Mechanical Engineering at Cornell University. This address, both in the display of technical knowledge and its eloquence, was highly commended in the mechanical world, and as a result Peach is looked upon as an authority. His talent as a literary genius, so pro- nounced in his younger days, has not forsaken him ; as a result several works of fiction bearing the signature of P. L. Peach as their author, are on the market, and as an evidence of their popularity some have appeared in their second edition, viz., " The Love Stories of My College Days, " " How I Run the Shop and Everybody Con- nected with It, " " Large Correspondence Adapted to Suc- cess at College, " etc. 40 E. P. WALLS. Walls has evinced a natural aptitude for the realms of science, his special branch being botany. He is very energetic in the pursuit of his vocation and may be seen tramping over a broad and fertile plain searching for a new species of plant. He has within recent years devised a novel microscope, so powerful and complex, that the molecules of sap may be discerned in the plant. For the past five years he has been Chief in the Department of Agriculture, a position requiring great executive ability, as well as knowledge of subjects in- volved. His scientific research continues unabated and he is contemplating surprising the world soon by an- nouncing the Wall Theory analogous to the Darwinian Theory, showing the missing link between animals and plants, or projecting the theory that man descended from a plant : in other words, that man is a " small potato. " The theory condensed is, that man descended from a monkey and that the monkey descended from a tree. Having thus concluded his reading, the magician assured me of the authenticity of the book and repeated his assertion that of all the records that he had ever read, that of the members of M. A. C. 1903 was among the most pleasing. Soon objects began to fade away and ere I concen- trated my thought I perceived the dawn of daylight and rubbing my eyes, I awoke to the realization that I had been under the influence of some narcotic and what I had just passed through had been only a dream. I discovered then that the chemical combination had ceased and that the recipe contained the ingredients of a great sleep-pro- ducing agent, the marvel of the 20th Century. Respectfully submitted.

C. 46 History of Class of 1904. i Two years have now elapsed since the glorious class of 1904 first appeared on the annals of Maryland Agricultural College. It was then that we broke away from all the things to which we had long been accustomed, and stood face to face with what proved to be the first real trial of manhood. The future that spread before us, though we now realize that it held in store for us all that we moat needed to help us through life, then looked black and forbidding, and many times were we near to succumb- ing and returning to our homes. But we knew that to give up were to show cowardice, so we fought stubbornly against it, and at last threw off the last vestige of home- sickness. After the entrance examinations had been passed successfully, the class was found to number forty-one members. The work of the year then commenced in earnest. The strangeness of our position soon wore off and we entered with zest into the enthusiasm with which the opening of the football season was received. The football team made a good record that year, and we were proud of the fact that some of its most brilliant victories were gained through the efforts of men of our class. The time soon passed however before our first holi- dav, that time to which we had all looked forward and which at the beginning of the year, had appeared to be so far off. This was Thanksgiving. But the few days of intermission were over all too soon, and we returned again to work all the harder preparing for the Christmas examinations. examinations were successfully passed, and we departed to our homes, where we cele- brated the Christmas festivities to the fullest extent of our capacities. The holidays passed at last, though, and the first of January found us again at M. A. C. We then settled down to three months of hard work. This long period was the dullest time of the whole year. The football season was over and the baseball season was still in the dim future. The monotony was broken somewhat, how- ever, b) ' .several periods of good skating in which we all took great delight. Thus the time dragged slowly along un- til Easter was upon us, preceded by the dreaded quarterlj ' examinations. We again succeeded in doing credit to our- selves and showed that our time had not been idly wasted. After Easter tlie time passed rapidly. We rooted faithfully for the baseball team on which several members of the class of ' 04 did glorious work. Our first year was now drawing to a close. The final examinations, which had given us so much worry, proved to be as easy as those which had preceded them, so that when commence- 48 ment day arrived we went home for the .siiniiner vacation feeling rell satisfied with our year ' s work. September 1902 found us again under tlie roof of old M. A. C. This time it was with the confident assur- ance and satisfied bearing of sophomores and, " old boys " . The old state of timidit) ' and homesickness, that had characterized us as, " Rats " during the preceding year, had been t hrown aside forever. Other changes had also taken place. Several of our classmates had fallen on the wayside, even at what was hardly the beginning of our journey. But their places had been partly filled by some new arrivals who joined our ranks at this time. Our class now numbered thirty-four, a falling off of seven from our freshman year. But, though fewer in numbers, our ambition to plant the standard of the class of ' 04 a peg higher than any preceding class of M. A. C. was as firm as ever. Of cohrse, that very important ceremonj- of initiating the new boys or, " Rats, " into M. A. C. life was punctually performed by us to the very best of our abilities. I will pass over the football season of our sophomore year in as few words as possible. Sev- eral members of ' 04 were on the team and did good work, Init the entire team played in " hard luck. " The Christmas examinations were now facing us again, the one painful blot to our joyous anticipations of the Christmas holidays. But, like all troubles, they were not half so bad as we imagined them to be, and we pushed onward again rejoicing that the first term ' s work was ended. Then again came that long dull period from Christmas to Easter. But, by working hard, we made the time pass swiftly by. In fact, several of us found it all too .short to accomplish the work we had in hand. After Easter the baseball .season opened, and the work of the team in some degree retrieved the defeats of the foot- ball team. Much interest this year was also taken in the track events and in tennis, the tennis medal for the championship of the college being won by a member of our class, and several of our classmates also carrying off the honors on the track during the commencement exercises. Our Junior year had now begun, and the end of our collegiate course at M. A. C. was now appearing in the dim future. We realized, more clearly than ever before, the responsibilities that all too soon, would rest on our shoulders, and, although there still remained much hard work for us to accomplish, we knew that the time for us to leave the place, which now seemed like home to us, was not far distant. Of the original class, that formerly required an entire section room in which to hold a class meeting, but twenty now remain. But all of those that are left are determined to push forward to the goal that is now in sight, and with such determination the result is certain. vSo the class of 1904 may rest assured that she will be represented on Commencement Day 1904, by as many, if not more members than any class that has yet graduated from the doors of our intended Alma Mater. Then, class- mates, with the violet and maroon ever in the lead, let us strive manfully onward, living up to our motto. Labor omnia vincit. — Historian. 49 Tribute of Tacitus to the Memory of Consul Agricola. Translated by Thomas H. Spenxe, Professo) ' oj Lai j; iiuqcs. IY I " ' , as our philosojihers insist, there be a place 1 in the realm of the hereafter, where the ■■■ spirits of the righteous will find repose, if the light of the soul be not extinguished when the body yields up its vital spark, - then may your mighty spirit rest in glorious peace, Agricola, and may you recall us, yotir fond household, from vain grief and woman ' s tears, to the contemplation of your life of virtue; for that surely, should cause us no regret or grief, but rather rejoicing and gratification. With sincere admiration, rather than mere word praise, we honor thy example, and so far as in us lies, we would strive to emulate the virtues of thy life. This is true respect, this, true reverence, and it is thus that we join the throng of those who mourn thy loss. I would exhort thy bereaved friends .so to reverence thy memory, that they will reflect thy light in their own careers, and have impressed upon their minds the image of thy character, rather than the outline and figure of thy immortal body. Not that I would inveigh against statues of marble and bronze, but as the countenance of man changes, and his body falls into dust, so do statues carved by human hands crumble and disappear; Init, the impress of a noble soul is everlasting, and you can per- petuate it, not bj ' the sculptor ' s art, but by your own life. What we loved in Agricola, what we admired, re- mains, and will remain, steadfast to all eternity, imprinted on the mind and in the hearts of men, and will be re- corded in history for all time. The March of Ages and the flight of time have .serv ' ed to obliterate the achievements of many of our ancient heroes, but the life of Agricola will be described to all posterity, and his virtues emulated, so long as Na- tions live, -SO long as men cheer the brave, applaud the generous and admire the good. 50 Anderson: — " 0 ! he will sing the savageness out of a bear.

A. C. for men- tal and physical development. On the igth of September, 1901, the class of 1905 assembled at the Maryland Agricultural College for the first time. They were a noble band of youths, numbering forty-four in all. The first time we ever assembled in one place it was for the purpose of electing class officers. These having been elected, we were then an organized class, ready to meet the trials of college life. Our first great trial was on All Halloween. We went through that, as many other emergencies, with flying colors. Since the football season opens at about the same time that our institutions of learning do, football was the first of the college athletics to attract our attention. Our class was well represented in this branch of athletics, and the members who played on the team did much toward placing the banner of ' 05 at its present high position in athletics. As the football season pas.sed by and the win- ter months came on we bent our minds to our studies. It was only a short time now before the Christmas exam- inations and holidays. The examinations the most of us passed very creditably, thanks to the amount of hard and faithful work we had done. The holidays were, like many other pleasures, soon over, and in a very short time we were back at our posts of duty again. Our time now was wholly taken up with our studies. The work done by the class of nineteen -five during the long, dreary winter months would do credit to any class, no matter what its ability. As the days began to grow longer, and the weather became such that we could be out of doors, the students started a track team. Our class furnished its full quota of applicants, and eventually some of the most successful contestants were chosen from among our ranks. Shortly after the track team was organized the applicants for the baseball team began their indoor work. So faithfully and so hard did the representatives of our class work that, when the team was chosen, four of the nine who were selected to represent the College, came from the class of ' 05. These men not only kept up the high standard of our athletics but even raised it higher. When the time for the inter-class ball games came around the class of nineteen-five put a team in the field that was almost invincible, losing only one game of the 54 Not only were our colors to be seen on the football and baseball fields, but also on the tennis courts. So well does one of our class play that he is rated as the second best player in the school. Now conies the most longed for, but perhaps the most dreaded period of the whole year. The time for the final examinations and commencement day exercises. For some it brings joy and happy plans for the following year, while for others it brings only disappointment and sorrow : for some it means the transformation from timid • Freshmen to daring and worthy Sophomores, and from the ranks to the positions of cadet oiEcers. I am glad to say that the majority ' of our class ex- perienced the joy of feeling that they had accomplished what they had come to college for. There were thirty- five of the original fort ' -four promoted to the Sophomore Class. It was not without sorrow that we said good-bye and left for our respective homes, some of us never to meet again as schoolmates. Our vacation was being very pleasantly spent, but it was with a great deal of pleasure that we looked forward to the time when we would all be back again at our work at the Maryland Agricultural College. When we took up our work again in September of 1902, as Sophomores, we found that, although we had lost some of our last years ' members, our class had grown to be fifty in number. This is now the largest in school. And, with the increased membership, we have been enabled to put in the field of both studies nd athletics just as good and probably better representa- tives than we had last year. Our class has stood together as a body this year better than ever before. This has been proven by the fact that when the Freshmen tried to paint their luunerals in conspicuous places about the campus they were de- feated, and, instead of the Freshmen numerals, those of the class of 1905, as well as ' 05 pennants, could be .seen in various places. Not only were they put there, but there they .stayed. No class dared to interfere with the work of the class of 1905. Football this year, as well as last, early attracted our attention. It was a matter of great joy to us when we heard that from the Sophomore Class si.K of the rep- resentative eleven were chosen. And greater still was our joy when we found that, in the absence of the regu- lar captain, one of those six was finally chosen to act as captain. Then as cold weather came on, and outdoor athletics became unpopular, we settled down into good hard work. We reaped the fruits of honest labor and passed almost without exception the midwinter and early spring exam " inations. This spring a member of the Sophomore Class was chosen captain of the ba.seball team. This is an honor seldom conferred upon a Sophomore. In athletics this spring we have not yet fallen below the standard set by members of our class in the football games. On the base- ball team we are represented b - four men: On the track team the star member is a 1905 man, and on the tennis 55 courts the colors Blue and Gold can be seen waving above all others. Our class team this year even excelled last year ' s team. As we were victorious in athletics so were we victor- ious in our studies. When the final examinations came around, although we had taken a great interest in athletics and had spent considerable time in the enjoy- ment of them, we were prepared for the examinations. There was only a very .small percentage who did not pass with creditable marks. Now we are about to enter upon a .short period of rest before taking upon our shoulders the heavy respon- sibilities of Juniors. Let us continue to work up to the standard that we have now set and we cannot fail to live up to our motto, " i ' incevnis. ' ' Historian. 56 Class of Nineteen-Six. C ass Colors: Red axu White.

N the reiiiarkahle aggregation of male juvenilit}-, commonly known as the Class of 1906, can be found every stage of physical and mental develop- ment from protoplasm to man. As a member of my class, I love the entire ontlit, of course, and am only too glad to chronicle the events which have marked the progress of our class from Preps to Freshmen, and from Freshmen to Sophomores. But I am honest — therefore I cannot hang about the heads of my classmates an undeserved aureole of glory. I would like to palm off the whole bunch as Cherubim and .Seraphim in, but, as there are so few " angels " in the class, I cannot afford to lie. Some of us came up from the Preparator - Depart- ment, that aggregation of human nondescripts that form the College Zoo; and others of us came from the Lord knows where, and joined our class at the beginning of last Fall. I understand that several of my beloved classmates were chased here by cows (they were green all right), others broke out of their local kindergartens, and fled to us for protection ; while some few got here through natural processes, and with some sort of jilaus- ihle bluff about studying. Well, our class was a heterogeneous mass in the be- ginning — farmers ' sons, merchants ' sons, soldiers ' sons, sons of guns, and others. But this curious collection did not dishearten us, for we all firmly believed in our motto, " Non Qui.s, Sed Quid, " and before the Autunni leaves had fallen we began to improve ; and by the time cold weather set in we had actually become civilized. Well, now for tlie narration of e ' ents. Our first day at college was a " blue " one ; every one was home- sick, and thinking of the girl he loved and had left be- hind : but this kind of stuff must be stopped, or they will nickname me " Sentimental Tommy. " At our first class meeting a serious attempt was made to elect class officers, and it was with great diffi- cultv that we succeeded in doing so. We found the heterogeneous mass to be composed of fifty-one boys most of whom wanted to be mechanics, and consequentlj- took the Mechanical, much to the regret of the professors in charge of it. It was not long, after we had arrived at college, be- fore we found the football season upon us. The team discovered some of its best players in the ranks of the Freshmen Class ; in fact, the newspapers said that dimin- 60 iitive " Zip " Fesiiiyer, ami his cell-mate, " Lizzie " Du- gaiine deserved great credit for excellent pla iiig. The next event of consequence was the painting of the back- stop by two adventurous Freshmen, who, while the Halloween dance was at its height, sallied forth into the dark and gloomy night with nothing for protection but a paint brush and a can of red paint. After wandering about in the night for several minutes; they came upon the back-stop at the end of the campus. Upon doing so, one of the adventurers exclaimed, " Aha, niethinks this is a fitting place for the insignia of our class, " and straightway they proceeded to inscribe in bright ver- milion a memorial to the class of ' 06. This greatly an- gered the Sophomores, but thinking this a bright idea, the ' promptly proceeded to adorn the college buildings with indescribable rags, upon which was smeared their numerals, " ' 05. " But their glory soon met its Water- loo. The illustrious janitor, upon seeing these " pic- turesque " symbols, innnediately tore them down. He said he had strict orders to keep the college buildings clear of all rubbish. During the fall a genius was discovered in our midst. He answers to the name of Chauncey, and his supply of information on students ' affairs is inexhaustible- In fact, no one in the college can show more unreliable intelligence than he. Chauncey ' s marvelous lung power was most undoubtedly obtained through " w-ind-jam- ming " in the bugle corps, of which he is chief noise- maker. The Christmas holidays were now close at hand, and the boys were contemjilating the delightful time they were .going to ha -e while at home. ( )ur first term ' s ex- aminations were soon over, and I believe I tell the truth when I say the whole push got through all of them. ' Like all holidays the time passed too ra])idly, and before we realized it, we were again within the walls of the Mar ' land Agricultural College. The members of our class returned resolved to make the Class of 1906 the best Freshmen Class that ever entered this college, and I feel proud to say that our resolution was well carried out. Symptoms of nostalgia again appeared among our, and if it had not been for Johnnie Green ' s " hash " and Saturday night suppers to look forward to, I fear it woidd never have been eliminated, as this is one of the few diseases that will not be cured bj ' " working " the sick-list. The time passed very fast after Christ- mas, and it was with bright hopes for a successful .sea.son, that our boys commenced to practice for baseball. We had more men on the ba.seball nine than we had on the football team. We had a very fine team, owing, of course, to the number of nn- classmates on it. While ba.seball was at its height a great many ' 06 men were bus - training for the track-team. Of, a few who tried for the team were left in the dust. Init those who were succe.ssful carried off the medals. It was just at this time of the year that a change came over our members — they seemed to be very low spirited. This may easih ' be accounted for — our final examinations were at hand. It was with liiiht 61 hearts and bright faces that our classes came forth from the much dreaded class-room after our last examination of the year. I am very glad I can say that nearly every member of the class passed a good examination, and they were changed from Freshmen to noble Sophomores. We all sincerely hope that ever}- member of our class will report for duty in the Fall, and add more laurels to the noble Class of 1906. Historian. 62 Prep, History, r was a dreary day and oh, how homesick ! when the B. O. con- ductor dropped them at College Station, and, pointing to the big gra - building on the hill, said: " Boys, you will not find mamma and papa and sister, the old Tom Cat and Fido up there, but in those old walls is something the name of which you cannot guess. " There was silence for awliile. " A trun- dle-bed? " yelled one little fellow with a wistful look. " No, a tri- cycle, " said a .second. " No, no, you are all wrong, " replied the jolly conductor. " Well, tell us, please, what it is. A .sail boat? An express wagon ? A toy pistol ? " inquired the anxious little fellows. " A persuader, " said the conduc- tor, almost splitting his sides with laughter; and pulling the string, the train moved on. " .4 persuader ! what is that? " said each to other as they gathered up their little bundles and packages and started up the walk. Many different ideas were discussed as to what he meant by a persuader; no one seemed to know. On they trudged, no one saying anything, but all thinking as they never thought before. At last one little fellow in .short pants .stopped suddenlv and said, " Ah ! boys, I know what he means ! " and bending down he opened one of his bundles and pulling out a Rumford Yeast Powder bottle half full of milk with a nipple on the end, held it up to the crowd. " That ' s what a per- suader is ? Don ' t you remember when your mamma used to give you that to stop you from crying ? do. Last night I was so anxious to see this place my mamma gave me this because I would ' nt go to sleep. Well, well, I didn ' t think of that once. I expect there is a nice old lady up there who goes around at night and puts us to bed with nice warm milk. Won ' t that be nice? " So on they went, well satisfied with what they ex- pected to get. (Oh, had they known better!) When they got to the door all were eager to get in and see their rooms. But alas ! what man is that standing there with that .sword and big hat on ? The O. D. " Where are you going? " he said sternly to the crowd. No one answered, but all stopped short. " Where are you going, and who are you ? " he said loudly. " My name is Max- well, sir, — mine is Wicks, is, so it is, and we came here to go to school. " liach one shaking in his shoes told his name and where he was from and everything about his home. Then the O. D. took each shivering little chap (for they expected better reception than that) to a room and left them. To them it .seemed that a black cloud had passed over the sun and shut out its bright- ness, for there they were in big rooms all alone 63 w itli nobody to i)lay with, ( for leineinber it was durinj study liotirs and in a military school and no one can isit other cadets ' rooms). ell, they managed fairly well, after washing all the hantlkerchiefs and towels they had with bitter tears; and after a few " Wish I was home ' s, " were .said, the time came for them to go to bed; and how glad they were ! Each little fellow climbed in his cot and waited patiently for the " dear old lady " and the " persuader. " " She can ' t be coming, " they thought a.s the old bugle .sent forth the last notes of " taps " down the long corridors. At last, tired of waiting, the ' fell asleep, and dreamed, I guess, of " home, sweet home. " Bang! Bang! " Open up, " said a low voice outside the door, — the little fellow jumped. " All right, ma ' am, " came the answer, " I thought n ' ou were never coming. " He, in his nightly robes, hurried to ojien the door. Horrors ! Oh my ! Who are these men with those things over their faces and that " Elite Polish " in their hands? The little fellow rubbed his cses; he thought he was dreaming ; but no, sad but true, about fifteen bovs creep into his room and as they came he could hear low murmurs. " What ' s his name? " " Oh, let him go, he ' s too small. " " No sir, not a one of them slips my hands. " Before he could speak one caught him by the arm and pulling liim into the light, said, " Son, everybody that comes here must have his face and shoes polished before he goes to breakfast, so we will polish -our face and you can do the rest; .so hold " our hands clown. " He took it bravely, likewise all the rest. Each could see his face in the other ' s the next morning, and each had to use a bar of soap to get back his natural color. As yet they have not seen nor felt the i(; " ,s-«(?( (V, Init I dare say they will before June. Poor dear little fellows ! Their history would fill a volume, but we cannot give them any more room.

The Armies and the Navies of the World by Major J. C. Scantling, United States Army, Professor of Military Science and Tactics. THERE are fifty-two independent nations and one liundred and fifty-three Colonial and subordinate governments on the globe. Of these latter governments Austria-Hungary has two; the British Empire sixty-six; the Chinese Empire five; France twenty-eight; the Ger- man Empire, sixteen; Italy, seven; the Japanese Empire, two; the Netherlands, three; Portugal, five; the Russian Empire, seven; Spain, three; Turkey, three, and the United States, five. The Armies and the Navies of the World very naturally belong to the fifty-two independent nations. The native troops of the inde- pendent nations change stations from the mother country to the foreign stations, periodically. These changes are necessary for the health of the troops, and it is part of the education of a soldier to know the world. Abyssinia. The regular army numbers about 150,000 men. They have modern rifles, Maxim guns and mitrail- leuses. In time of war the regular army is supplemented by irregular and territorial troops, most of whom are armed with the native weapons, shield and lance. — This country has no Navv. Afgh. nistan. The regular army is said to nmnber 44,000, but no trustworthy statistics regarding its strength are available. Few, if any, of the regimental officers can be considered competent, either to instruct or to lead the troops. The country has factories with machinery imported from England, for manufacturing modern rifles, cartridges and field guns. There are 50,000 breach-loading rifles on hand, but it is uncertain how many of these weapons have been issued. No Navy. Argentine Republic. The regular armv numbers 29,513. The National Guard is ])ut at 471, 91J men. These are mobilized every year, and are given two months drill in camp.

The Argentine Navy consists of 8,416 officers and men, and seven modern armoured ships, and seven smaller ships and gunVioats, with a numlier of older typies, as 71 well as four destroyers, twelve first-class, and ten second- class torpedo-boats, also five armoured, and three second-class cruisers of high speed. The Buenos Ayres, a new second-class cruiser is one of the fastest sea-going vessels afloat. AUSTRIA-HUNG.A.RY. The regular army numbers 361- 693. The Infantrv is armed witli the Mannlicher rifle. On war footing the numlier is jnit at 1,872,178. Its cavalrv is verv fine. The government raises its own horses, and thus secures the finest animals. The Austria- Hungarian Nav - is mainly a coast defensive force, maintained in a state of high effeciency, and including a floatilla of four monitors for the Danube. Exclusive of four monitors and eighty-three coast defense vessels, there are eighteen modern armour-clad sea-going ships. RELciiur. The regular army numbers 51,448. In time of war the total strength is 143,000. The Infantry is armed with the Mauser Magazine rifle, and the Ar- tillery with Krupp guns.

The military resources of this country are insignificant. Beyond tlie guards for the defense of the various castles, there is notliing like a standing army. No Navy. BoLi ' . . The regular armv numbers 2,560. The total strength of the fighting force numlicrs 82,000 reckoning service compulsory from 21 to 50 years of age. — No Navy. Brazil. The regular army numljers i8.g8o. These are four military schools. The Navy includes six sea- going tunet-ships. four old Ijattle-ships, and five cruisers. The coast defense vessels are, six monitors, sixteen torpedo boats and twelve gunboats. There is one naval school and five naval arsenals. Oreat Britain. The regular army numbers 250,000. During the late war in South Africa it numliered 503,000. The number of men engaged in that war, was 210,293 exclusive of officers. In time of peace the army is dis- tributed throughout the various English Colonies, with about lialf at home. The army in India is always large 70,000 to 80,000. There are six schools for military education, the two most famous for officers are " The Royal Militarv Academy " at Woolwich, and " The Royal Military and Stafl; ' Colleges " at LandJiurst. fireat Britain has in all 695 vessels of war, 429 of which are classed as modern fighting ships, 67 being battle-ships of first, second, and third class. Tlie jiersonnel numbers 114,880 officers and men. Chili. The regular army numbers 9.884. The In- fantry is armed with Mauser rifles.

The Chilian fleet consists of one battle-shij), nine cruisers, six destroyers, and fifteen first-class and four second-class torpedo boats. The cruisers Chacobuco,, O ' Higgins and Blanco Eucalada are remarkably fine vessels, power- fullv armed and of high speed. THE BATTALION. China. The regular army numbers about 300,000, and in time of war, the strength of the fighting force is put at 1,000,000, but the army as a whole has no unity or cohesion, there is no discipline, the drill is mere phy- sical exercise; about 80,000 have modern organization, drill, and arms, with the remaining forces the weapons are long since obsolete, and there is no transport com- missariat, no medical service. Of the Chinese Navy, only two vessels remained after her war with Japan in 1894. Two swift cruisers, and three small cruisers, and a torpedcj gun boat have since been added to the fleet. The Chinese blue-jacket is as good as any in the world, hence the value to Japan of an alliance with China, allowing her to officer the Chinese Navy. Columbia. The strength of the National army is determined by an act of Congress each session. The peace footing was fixed at 1,000 in i8g8. In case of war the Executive can raise the army to the strength which circumstances may demand. Every able bodied Columbian is liable to military service. The Columbian Navy consists of one river gunboat and two small vessels. Congo, Independent State.

The fundamental laws of the Re- public forbid the maintenance of a standing army. To provide for the defense of the country every citizen has to bear arms, in the use of which all boys are in- structed at school, from the age of eight passing through annual and reviews. The National Guard is C(jmposed of two classes of troops, those of the Confed- eration and those of the Cantons (States). These forces are called together periodically for inspection and exer- cises.

The Ottoman Navy consists of fifty fighting shijjs. but many of these were built so long ago as to belong now to the class of local defense vessels. Of these there are eighteen ar- moured vessels. A survey of the Navy reveals it as mainly an obsolescent, and in a great part already an obsolete, fighting force. The personnel numbers 30,929, and about 9,000 marines. United St. tes. The regular army now numbers 3,602 officers and 59,866 men, and may be increased to 100,000 by the President in case of war. The 9th and loth. regiments of cavalry and the 24th and 25th regiments of infantry are composed of colored soldiers, commanded by white officers.

The Navy consists of 119 vessels of fighting value. Of these there are 19 battle ships, 13 first-class and 18 second-class cruisers, 10 monitors, 20 gunboats, 10 torpedo boats destroyers, 26 torpedo boats; 2 sul)marine torpedo boats and one ram.

The total strength of the standing armies of the world numbers not less than 5,219,583 officers and men, being larger than at any otlier time, not excepting the great war ])eriod of the First Napoleon. It is well for the world at large that China is not a warlike nation. As it is, the Powers of Europe have com- bined against her politically and commercially to the extent of selling to her only a limited quantity of m.uni- tions of war. The population is not less than 400,000,- 000. The total strength of the Navies of the world is about 1,000,000 officers and men. The vessels of fight- ing value number 2,369. The principal naval powers, namely, England, France, Germany, Russia, Italy, the United States and Japan are now active in increasing their already ])owerful navies. England stands alone as a maritime power. She aims to hold a two-power standard, reckoning always with France and Russia, the two most powerful nations with whom she may come in contact. Germany very naturally stands in with England, and is now striving to rank France, as the second strongest naval power. Italy is a powerful nation, both on land and sea, and is an ally of England and Germany, as a stand-off in the alliance of France and Russia.

" — Cicero. ITERATURE, the expression of man ' s life in universal form, has for ages been cultivated liy all races; being furthered in its develop- ment by some of the greatest geniuses the world has produced and so generally recog- nized as the highest i roduction of the intel- lect, it is but right that its advancement should be encouraged in a seat of learning. Recognizing this necessity the result has been the orga- nization of the New Mercer Literary Society and not only on this account for the ambition of every educated man is adecjuately to express his thoughts in a form readily interpretable by others. The literary society without doubt is a prominent factor in the developing of the growing mind, as, by the experience of others and the practice aiTorded by reading and debates, skill in both expression and readiness of thought is acquired. The New Mercer Literary Society was first organized in 1861 by Dr. William N. Mercer of New Orleans, who through interest in literary work at the college and by his lienevolence greatly assisted in its organization, pre- senting the society with a large collection of valuable books, thus, forming a nucleus for the present college Library. The Society flourished for some years but unfortunately at the death of its founder it began to decline and in 1889 it ceased to exist. This period of inactivity prevailed for several years, when in 1892 the need of a literary organization being much felt, H. C. Sherman, with others, reorganized the New Mercer Lit- erary Society and was elected its first president. The high standard thus obtained by the well-directed efforts of the Society ' s president existed until the year 1894. After that date and continuing until 1897, the New Mercer assumes various forms. First, the literary work was carried on by the House ofCommon.s — an imitation of the Lower House of the English Parliament. Pol- 89 lowing tliis came the Morrill Soriety; the Spencerian Society of the So])homores and the Calvert Society of the Freshmen. Finally in 1897, the present New Mercer Literary Society was reorganized by Mr. W. S. Weedon, who being elected president established it on a firm l)asis. Ever increasing its sjjhere of usefulness, it has continued to the present time and is now deemed a very profitable and interesting oranization. In 1S9Q it furnished both the princijfal and alternate and in igoo the alternate to the Oratorical Contest of Maryland Colleges. This vcar the work has surpassed tlie most sanguine expecta- tions of its ]jromoters. Under the ]jresidency of Mr. Preston L. Peach whose executive ability and literary talents have long been recognized, it has been brought to the front the principal for the Oratorical contest this vear being e lected from this Society. There are no entrance requirements — membership being purely voluntary — therefore the more attractive the ]:)rogramme and the more fascinating the work, the more tempting will the society be to the new student. With the New Mercer progress in all lines appertaining to literature has been most gratifying, the membership has greatlv increased and interest is at its highest pitch. 90 Class Ode of 1904, I.

M. 91 The Merchant of Venice. t X attempting a discussion of such a well- known suliject as one of Shakespeare ' s plays, and, more especially, of this very popular one, it would seem presumptuous to hope to display very much of originality or to evince an unusually deep insight into the literary or other merits of the production, so ably has the ground been exploited heretofore. Yet it may be that a thoughtful gleaning of the fruitful field, even after the golden harvesi has been garnered in, may yield a sheaf to reward what can scarcely be called labor, where the pleasure is so great. Or it may be that an earnest effort to correlate and digest some of the best criticisms of this masterpiece may not only evolve some new idea, but may stimulate such an interest in the work of the great dramatist as may lead some casual reader to jirobe deeper into the mysteries of that wonder- ful mind, the peer of which the ages fail to show. If any youthful reader shall be guided from the transient, and oft times injurious, excitement of the ci)hemeral popular literature of the day, to an appreciation of the eternal verities that throng the pages of Shakespeare, our aim will have been attained and our effort justified. The Merchant of Venice is a drama eminently fitted to arouse such a friendly interest in the mind of the reader. In the first place, tho ' it combines in a most felicitous manner the elements of romance, Comedy and tragedv, it is most easily understood, and second, because it is one of those plays in which the author has gone to many sources for the material out of which to create his drama, it is well adapted to show the art of the dramatist. We may here observe how the magic touch of Genius moulds and modifies, refines and glorifies the rude and diverse materials which go to complete the structure of the drama. Although the scholars do not agree concerning the exact date of its creation, the play was probably written about the year isq ' i. This would bring it into that second great period of the author ' s literary work, in which he displayed such wonderful control over mater- 92 ials. That it slioulii be nearly synclironoiis with " The Midsummer Night ' s Dream, " and " As You Like It, " would naturally lead us to expect a high order of literary workmanship — and we are not disappointed. The mighty power of the artist is clearly demonstrated by this play; for, not only has he relied on others for the materials for his plot, but he has woven into one narra- tive divers distinct, unconnected stories. And so con- summate has been the skill displayed that we cannot perceive the points of union. We are told that when Shakespeare wrote this drama, there were in existence three sej)arate tales. One of these was called " The adventure of Giannetto, " who became the prototype of Rassanio; another was of " A Jew Who W ' ould Have His Pound of Flesh; " the third was the " Story of the Three Caskets. " There were also extant two ballads, and a play, " The School of Abuse, " all of which, more or less, resemble some part or parts of the Shakespearean drama. Furthermore, it cannot be doubted that Shakespeare received a number of hints concerning his treatment of Shylock from " The Jew of Malta " of Christopher Marlowe, which play was well- known in England at the time of the writing of thig drama. A comparison of the two dramas shows that, in almost every scene in which Shylock appears, he acts and speaks to some extent like the Jew of Marlowe ' s play. But the genius of Shakespeare is shown, not more by what he took from these sources to use for himself, than by wliat he omitted and cast aside. Of the characters of the play, the dramatist has invented the following: the Princes of Morocco and of Aragon, Gratiano, Lor- enzo, Salerio, Leonardo, Tubal, Old Gobbo, Launcelot Gobbo and Jessica. Of the other characters, mere skeletons were taken and clothed with flesh and blood. New life was breathed into them and th.ey became living men and women of the play. Entire incidents and scenes were created by the author; and the whole play stands a beautiful mosaic, formed of many parts, gathered by the artist from many places, and all lilend- ing harmoniously into an artistic whole. So much for the sources. Let us now pass to a con- sideration of the drama itself. What is there in this play, as it is presented by our author, that should commend itself to our study? And in order properly to answer this question, we must find out what the author has done. " Art is a doing, and the artist is a doer, " it has been said. Therefore, " what has the author done? " is the question of prime importance. In the pursuit of this inquiry we observe the fundamental principles of the dramatic art. Dramatic poetry is the highest of all the fine arts; because the subject matter is purely ideal, and in dealing with both form and content, the artist enjoys greater freedom than in any other form of artistic creation. The dramatist works with materials made to his order. He conceives an idea, he forms the mental image of his hero; he places liim in certain arbitrary positions, or under certain natural conditions, and portrays the workings of that ideal creation controlled bv natural laws. Fact or his- 93 tory is as nauglit to the dramatist. What matter if King John be not an usurper ' It suits the ends of the dra- matist to make him one, in order to insure dramatic interest in the play. What boots it if Caesar be not an arbitrary despot? The action of the " noble Brutus " must be justified, and " mightiest Julius " becomes a haughty tyrant. It v ill be seen, then, that the proper understanding of a drama depends upon our getting a correct conception of what was in the mind of the author. If we fail in that, we fail in all. What, therefore, does " The Merchant of Venice " stand f(jr? What is the meaning of the play? The opening lines of the drama strike the keynote, and the gloomy spirit of Antonio foreshadows the tragedy which permeates the play, when he says: " In sooth, I know not why I am so sad; It wearies me. You say it wearies you: P.ut how I caught it, found it or came b ' it, What stuff ' tis made of, whereof it is born, 1 am to learn; And such a want-wit sadness makes of me That I have much ado to know myself. " In marked contrast with this note of sadness is the setting in which the action takes its course. Venice with her magic and her beauty, her temples and her palaces, her romance and her gay frivolity, lends an air of glamour and enchantment to the play. The warmth of Southern niglits, the blue of Southern skies, the syjice- laden breezes of the sunny Southern clime, all tended to intoxicate the earh ' English traveller; and Shakes- jjeare, in carrying his auditors into that dreamland of luxury and leisure, gave to his fellow countrymen a draught more sweet than nectar. Lord Byron in a later age expresses this feeling as he sings: " She (Venice) looks a sea Cybele fresh from ocean. Rising with her tiara of proud towers at airy distance. " What more fitting background for an airy romance than that in which the noble Lord Bassanio and the fair and lo ' ely Portia play their graceful parts! But it is Venice, the center of the world ' s trade ; Venice " throned in an hundred isles; " Venice wedded to the sea; Venice stretching forth her golden scepter of com- mercial dominion o ' er all the seas, it is this Venice in which the story culminates. What more appropriate mart in which a Jew and Gentile might barter for the use of money. The air of the play is commercial. In the very beginning this note is lieard as Salerio refers to the argosies of Antonio: " Your mind is tossing on the ocean; " There, where your argosies with portly sail. Like signiors and rich burghers of the flood, Or, as it were, the pageants of the sea. Do overpeer the petty traffickers. That curt ' sy to them, do them reverence. As they fly by them with their woven wings. " A single merchant dots the seas with fleets of vessels laden with wealth from every land and every clime. Bassanio launches a fortune to regain a lost one. " Trade, the lending of money, the relation of debtor and creditor, the risks of distant traffic, the legal enforcement of con- 94 tract. — all this is woven into the airy tissue of a romance. " And we are so amazed at the i;enius that can so deceive our .sense that we fail to note the tone of business. All is romance ; and in the glamour of the regal beauty and the commercial greatness of Venice all else is lost. As we view the play in its commercial aspect, Shylock be- comes the central figure and typifies the fierce contest of business life; when we behold it in an aesthetic light. Portia epitomizes the ethereal lieauty of Venice and ex- presses it with an airy lightness. But there is more involved in this drama than the mere spectacle of the boundless magnificence of Venice. In the first place, it seems that the author, in Shylock. intended to portray a Jew who should be pitied — a hu- man Jew. In this respect he is far ahead of his time, for no such feelings animated the cotemporaries of Sha- kespeare. Marlowe ' s Jew of Malta is an inhuman mon- ster, deserving the cruellest fate that human wit could devise. We look with a feeling of satisfaction upon his awful fate, a feeling that it is, as Hamlet says, " the engineer hoist with his own petar. " Rut Shylock is a man with passions, feelings, sensibilities, like other men. The play is full of evidence of this truth. As he reflects upon the wrongs of himself and his people, suffered at the hands of Christians, and especially from scornful treatment by Antonio, he bursts into a flood of passion Titanic in its vehemence — with blazing eyes he cries: " I am a Jew — Hath not a Jew eyes? Hath not a Jew hards, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions? fed by the sam.e food ; hurt by the same weapons; sut)ject to the same diseases, healed by the same means; warmed and cocjled by the same winter and. summer, as a Christ- ian is? If you ]jrick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you jjoison us, do we not die ' And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge? If a Jew wrong a Christian, what is his (the Christian ' s) h.umility ? Revenge. If a Christian wrong a Jew, what should his (the Jew ' s) sufTerance be by Christian example? Why, revenge. The villainy you teach me I will execute; and it shall go hard but I will lietter the instruction. " He has softer feelings, too; for does he not weep at the ingratitude of Jessica in abandoning her flesh and blood, her race and her national faith? And is his mind not filled with a tender memory when he hears that Jessica has bartered, in exchange for a monkey, the turf|uoise which Leah liad given him in his y(juthful bachelor days, when his soul had not become sordid from the love of hoarded gold, and embittered liy heartless treatment from his Christian tormentors? He cries out in grief: " I would not have given it for a wilderness of monkeys! " He is a strong man, and we should expect strong feelings; but in spite of his avarice, his tenacity of jiurpose, his bloodthirsty desire for vengeance, he is a man to be ])itied. Why, it may be asked, did not Sh.akespeare make this intent unmistakably evident in the drama? Because, in the clays of Shakespeare, the lew in England was a social outcast. A play openly advocating the cause of the Jew would have been hissed from the stage. P ut l)y subtle art, the author, while {iretending to gi ' c the 9S Jew abstract justice, has caused us to sympathize with his wrongs and deep distress. It is strange, indeed, that only comparatively recently has anyone undertaken a defense of Shylock. It was not until the time of the great Keene that any actor had given to the character such an interpretation that the pathos of his situation overcame the horror aroused by the contemplation of his bloodthirsty vengeance. Now, however, the best actors create, in the minds of their auditors, the impres- sion that Shylock has I ' cen imposed upon in some un- seen way, and the last feeling in the mind is pity for the Jew. And whv should Shakespeare wish to create such a feeling for the Jew? Because the great heart of the man went out to a people who were the scourge of the ea ' ' th. The same instinct, so long - ' mothered among men, that now holds a man in check when he would, on ac- count of race prejudice, unjustly use another, was the spirit that moved the author of this play. Our sympathy must, therefore, be with the Jew; for as a problem of law, Shylock ' s case was not correctly decided. Portia ' s argument that the bond, which she admitted to be a valid contract, gave Shylock " no jot of blood, " is fallacious; because it is a well-known ]jrin- ciple of the law that the riglit to do an act carries with it the necessary incidents to such performance. In the language of Professor Corson, " Shylock, therefore, loses his case by a bloodless argument. " Shylock ' s argu- ment is clear, forcible, and to the point. He pleads his own cause. His race is down-trodden; personally he is despised and spit upon ; his business is ruined ; and when, by the terms of a contract which is admittedly legal and binding, he has his chief tormentor in his power, shall he not crush liim? Were we to judge the case by the ethics of modern Boards of Trade, we need not hesi- tate to pronounce an unqualified assent. But the case is not so judged. Jewish justice says aye; but Christian mercy says no. And here we see portrayed the conflict of two great principles. Two systems of religious belief are in direct opposition. The Duke, in the trial scene, says, in effect: " Antonio hath suffered many losses, — more than an ordinary merchant could stand. Be touched with hu- man gentleness and love. Forgive a portion of the debt. We all expect a gentle answer, Jew. " The Jew refuses the ai3])eal for lenity, and says that the forfeit of the bond will feed his vengeance. The Duke exclaims: " How shall you hope for mercy, rendering none? " But the Jew replies: " What judgment shall I fear, doing no wrong? " Portia, in the best lines of the pla} ' , makes the same plea for clemency, relying upon the Christian princijjle of forgiveness and mercy; but Shylock, the Jew, is moved by no such spirit. " An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth, " is his creed, and boldly he adheres to it. Portia, after she has declared that the bond is forfeit, says: " the Jew must then be merciful; " but Shylock, relying on the justice of the decrees of Venice, asks: " Is it so nominated in the bond? I ' ll have my bond. Deny it, and the danger light upon your charter and your city ' s freedom. " And by the law of Venice the Court decrees that the penalty must be paid. 96 It may be said that Shylock should have been chari- table; but it must Ije remembered that charity was not given to the Jews, nor expected from them. Antonio, in borrowing the money says, in reply to Shylock ' s charge that the Jew has been inhumanly dealt with: " I am as like to call thee so again. To spit on thee again, to spurn thee, too. If thou wilt lend this money, lend it not As to thy friends; Rut lend it rather to thine enemy. Who, if he break, thou mayst with better face Exact the penalty. " And when the bond is forfeit, Antonio, more nearly cor- rect than his friends, recognizes this principle of justice, and refuses to ask mercy of the Jew. Then follows the quibble by which, at one fell blow, Shylock loses his interest, his principal, his estates, his daughter and his religion — for he must, to save his life, become a Christian, too. Verily, a cruel sentence. The old man is in despair. He cries out: " Nay, take m ' life and all; pardon not that; You take my house when you do take the prop That doth sustain my house; you take my life When you do take the means whereby I live. " He goes ou t of the Court broken, ready for death. Is it wonder that the man is pitied? Rut what effect has all this sadness upon the gay party left behind? Do they feel any remorse for their cruelty, or symjjathy for the poor creature whom they have just crushed? Does Antonio j rotest against the ranlc in- justice to tlie Jew, tho ' he, himself, has just been snatched from the very jaws of death ' It would seem that his own near ajsproach to the grave would have made him charita!)le. Not so. He adds the most terrible [jart of the penalty to Shylock ' s suffering, by which the poor old man, already rolibed of all his worldly goods, is re- ouired to renounce the faith of his fathers. No; there is no eviifence of any remorse or sympathy in the minds or hearts of any of the actors of this trial scene — all is happily ended. The Duke retires with a feeling of hav- ing well performed his duty. Bassanio and Gratiano make ready to hasten back ' , with Antonio, to hold high carnival with their wives at Belmont. In the last act we have the merry badinage of Portia and Nerissa about the rings. Lorenzo and Jessica discourse about the Ijeauties of moon-lit night, and the loveliness of sweet music. All is serene, peaceful, almost joyful. Even Jessica evinces no expression of sorrow at the cruel fate of her father. And this brings us to the real moral of the play. The necessity for brevity compels us to pass rather hastily over many of the beauties of this drama. We can only pause to observe the consummate skill with which the author has wrought out the main action, which involves the loves of Bassanio and Portia, contrasting them with the lively affair of Gratiano and Nerissa. We may note only casually the artful tell ing of the story of the caskets. We may not dwell upon the idyllic romance of Lorenzo and Jessica. We may only suggest the gentle sweetness and co iuetry of Portia; the playful wit of Nerissa; the 97 artless modesty of Jessica; the calm philosophy of An- tonio; the gentlemanly elegance of Bassanio; the head- strong rashness and wit of Gratiano; and the eccentric humor of Launcelot Gobbo — A more intimate acquain- tance with these would well repay the effort, but we must hasten to point out what seems to be the para- mount mission of this drama. Undoubtedly Shakespeare intended this play to ex- hibit, in no uncertain manner, the reactionary effect of wrongdoing upon the conscience. In order to appre- ciate this truth, we must note that there are two kinds of Conscience: the Real or Eternal Conscience, which winks at no deviation from the right; and the Conven- tional Conscience, which measures right or wrong accord- ing to conventional standards, i, e., according to the fashion. This play shows the evil effect of the Conven- tional Conscience, and is a protest against it. Thus Antonio, tho ' a good man, whom Bassanio declares to be, " the kindest man, the best conditioned and un- wearied spirit in doing courtesies, " is most bigoted and unjust to the Jews. Hence, he cannot mete out justice to one of their number. His moral character is lowered by bigotry which is the result of conforming to the conventional standard of the time. So Portia, tho lovely in character, and generous to a fault wherein her social equals are concerned, by reason of her habitual mode of thought, is ignorant of any wrong done to Shy- lock. Hence she expresses no sympathy for one wliose condition might move a heart of stone. Being a Jew, Shylock is, according to her standard of judgment, a social pariah, and deserves no more consideration than a beast. So the other members of the party. The Real Conscience is quiescent, after long and customary neglect of its warning voice, and habitual ignoring of correct standards of right and wrong. The Conven- tional Conscience results. It is moved alone by fashion, by public opinion. It was customary to despise and maltreat the Jews; therefore any imposition upon Shy- lock excited no sympathy or pity. The function of the last scene of the drama is un- doubtedly to call attention to this moral condition of the actors. The state of society compelled Shakespeare to appear to comply with the intolerance of the times against the Jews ; but the play was a veiled protest against the unfeeling prejudice. Shakespeare judged according to eternal standards, inherent in the man. He may not have been conscious of such intent, but the moral of the play lies in the attention called to the fact that wrong-doing, and wrong-thinking, even tho ' coti- ventionally permissible, are punished surely and inevi- tably. The man is consciously or unconsciously lowered in the scale of e.xistence. This is the price paid for the Conventional Conscience; and it is high — far too high. Fr. nk B.

It was first organized in 1894 through the efforts of Professor R. H. Ah-ey — its first president being Dr. Sothoron Key of the class of ' 94 and its first Secretary, Mr. L. McCandlish of the class of ' 95. Tt derived its name from the great benefactor of Argicultural Colleges, the late Senator Morrill. When first established its pro- gram was somewhat of a novelty in that it included a weekly address or lecture by some member of the College Facultv on a current topic and regular debates which were held every Friday evening. Howe ' er its life was onlv for the short span of one year, when it was absorbed by the other literary organizations of the College. During the session of 1899-1900, it was reorganized through the efforts of Mr. H. J. Kefauver with Mr. W. H. Wcigand as its president; this was done in order that there might be competition in literary work, which is so essential in its development. This Societ ' furnished once the ])riiicipal orator to represent M, A. C. in the Oratorical Contest of Maryhimi Colleges. This year through the energy of Mr. E. P. Walls it has made great progress, The sessions have been well attended, interest has been strong and the work of a high order. The several joint meetings held between the two societies have been marked with sharp com- petition, whicli has pro ' ed beneficial to the work of Ijoth societies. The two annual events of especial impor- tance for the Literary Societies during each scholastic ' ear are the Oratorical Contest in the winter and the comjjetitive debate in June, the winner in the latter contest being awarded a gold medal offered bv the Alumni . ssociation. The latter being in June, forms an interesting part of the during commence- ment week and is entered into with great enthusiasm by the candidates elected from l)oth societies. May the interest and enthusiasm which has given the society its firm basis, continue unabated in the future and may its members be inspired by the work of their predecessors to devote their unyeilding efforts to the advancement of the Society. It has been a source of gratification in the past, may it continue to be one in the future. If this sentiment is fostered, it is certain to bear fruit and in the davs to come the societv will be so prominent that it will be an imperishable factor in the College curriculum. R. B.

S 1 2 3 B Q V The Rossburg Club, g= =S) ' ' Co iie and trip it as you go Oil tlie light t ' antastii ' toe. " F tliere were no flowers strewn along the way, the road to knowledge would be ex- tremely dull and uninteresting; and it is fortunate for the students of the Maryland Agricultural College that the President and Faculty recognize the truth of this state- ment. It is the Rossburg Club that pro- vides the flowers, which are most bright and lovable, that are scattered along the path of knowledge, adding brightness, cheerfulness and hopefulness ' to the student. These flowers are often plucked and many are forget-me-nots. The main object of college life is to secure an educa- tion and fit one ' s self for the duties and responsibilities of citizenship; but a succession of classes day after day with no break whatever in the scheduled work would make life burdensome and dry up the springs of human joy. The social side of life is well-nigh as important as the intellectual or physical, and the Rossburg Club has for its oliject the development of the student ' s social being. The waltz, with its poetic motion and the ac- companying strains of ins])iring music, notonlv contri- butes to pliysical grace but also elevates and refines the entire nature. The verdant country lad, fresh from th.e field and his father ' .s flocks — awkward, diffident and hesitating — is transformed by the Rossburg Club into a courtly gentle- man, graced in all the arts of social life. These are the reasons why the President of the College always aids and encourages our Rossburg Chdi. What an ins])iration it is to know tliat a dance is near, and how gladlv we await the night of that carnival when once more our duties are laid aside and bidding dull care adieu we enter the mystic realm where Terpsichore reigns sujirenic 0]i ! wliat adreamof joy — tlie glittering lights, the ent-hanting music, the flash of colors as the dancers pass in graceful motion In-, and more than all the rosy cheeks and lovely e ' es of the only i;;V — hurrah for the Rossi turg Club! " Tweh ' e dancers are dancing anil taking no rest And closely their hands together are jiressed; And soon as a dance has come to a close, Another begins and each merrily goes. " The dance is on. The music, which the poets say is sent from heaven, thrills the soul and we are bewitched as we guide the maiden of our heart ' s desire through the mystic mazes of the waltz. ' llat a fountain is t(j the desert, what a ])ath is to the wilderness, what beauty is to the rose, what the soul is to the bo(iy, the same is the RossburgClub to our College life. The attractions of the Rossburg Club are always new. In the vast field of pleasure, which it presents, it is true that innumeraljle reapers have already put their sickles; yet the harvest is so abundant that the negligent search of a straggling gleaner m.ay be rewarded with a sheaf.

HE Young Men ' s Christian Association of the College had a very unique beginning. Upon the opening of College two years ago a new fioy was visited in his room by a band of old l oys, who had picked out the new- comer as a good subject for a little fun. The spokesman of the band demanded a sermon, and the boys all stood around eager for the fun to begin. Apparently undisturbed by the conmiands and threats of the crowd, the new boy took up his Bible from the table, asked the visitors to lie (]uiet for a moment and read a passage of vScripture. He then made a short speech in which he set forth the beauty of the Christian religion and appealed to those jjresent to follow in the foot-steps of the Great E.xampler and live noble Christ- ian lives. The crowd listened attentively to the speaker ' s earnest 114 words and seemed to be greatly impressed. When he had finished there was no scoffing or jeering, but on the contrary the boys filed out of the room quietly and re- spectfully. The new boy who had the courage to unfurl the stand- ard of the Christian religion on his first day in college had th.e persistence also to go to the very bo ' s who had molested him and ask them to come to his room again, promising to gi ' e them another exhortation. The boys did visit his room again, sincere and thought- ful now, and joined with him in religious exercises. Thus began the Young Men ' s Christian Association, which has grown in membership until it now numbers one hundred and ten. During the last year particularly great good has been accomplished by this organization. Not only have regular meetings been held every Sunday evening in which many of the members took an active part, but special meetings were held and speakers from outside were secured for evangelical work. At one of these meetings in charge of Mr. Arthur Williams, Secretary of the Y. M. C. A. of Canada, nine bovs professed con- version and several united with some church. It has been arranged to send two members to the Northfield Convention next summer to equip them for active work in the Association next vcar. Prospects are bright for the Y. M. C. A., and may God bless the good work to the ennobling and uplifti ng of the entire student bods ' . i ' 5 THE BURIAL OF SIR JOHN MOORE. fl s Not a drum was heard — not a funeral note, As his corps to the ramparts we hurried; Not a soldier discharged his farewell shot, O ' er the grave where our hero was buried. We buried darkly, at dead of night, The sods with out bayonets turning. By the struggling moon lieam ' s misty light, And the lantern dimly burning. No useless coffin inclosed his breast; Not in sheet, nor in shroud we wound him. But he lay — like a warrior taking his rest, With his martial cloak around liim. Few and short were the prayers we said. And we spoke not a word of sorrow; But we steadfastly gazed on the face of the dead. And we bitterly thought of the morrow. We thought as we hollowed his narrow bed. And smoothed down his lonely pillow, That the foe and the stranger would tread o ' er this head. And we far away on the billow. Lightly they talk of the spirit that ' s gone, And o ' er his cold ashes upbraid him; But nothing he ' ll reck, if they let him sleep on. In the grave where a Briton has laid him. But half of our heavy task was done, When the bell tolled the hour for retiring; And we heard the distant and random gun. That the foe was sullenly firing. Slowly and sadly we laid him down, From the field of his fame fresh and gory; We carved not a line — we raised not a stone. But left him alone in his glorv! borrowi ' d. ii6 4. vA- J 2 U AA ? i X: ■ T ) 03 J I- E. P. Walls, J. M. Matthews, W. R. Mitchell, J. P. Collier, C. P. Page, E. P. Walls, E. B. Dunbar, J. P.

(i to tlie fact that our predecessors have given such a complete record of the progress in Athletics of the Maryland Agricultural College since 1892, it is my purpose only to sketch a brief outline of the records made by the various teams during ' 02 and ' 03. The base-ball team of ' 02, under the man- agement of Manager Bowman and the ex- cellent training of Captain Nicholls, was undoubtedly the best team M. A. C. has put in the field since the champions of ' 90. and rightly claimed the champion- shi]) of Maryland and Delaware, as their record will show that they were entitled to it. We regret that owing to lack of space we are not able to give an account of each member, but will mention a few of the stars, who deserve special notice. Capt. Nicholls, ' 03, whose ability at short-stop is unquestion- able, is a jjlayer able to fill that position on any team. He also won the medal for the highest batting average. Brown, wliose a1 ility in the box is well known through- out the State, made for himself an enviable record, holding the Navy to one hit in seven innings and closing out Gallaudet without a score. Hirst at first Ijase and Smith catcher also deserve mention, A great deal of interest was taken in the track team of ' 02. The team made a name for itself at the George- town meet and Cajjt. Turner broke the College records for 220 yard dash and quarter mile run. When College opened in September, eight meml)ers of last year ' s foot-ball team returned. Capt. Warfield did not return and his position at full-back was hard to- fill at the first of the season. Capt. Dunljar of the ' 01 team unexpectedly returned and was elected captain. Manager Walls arranged a very fine schedule which in- cluded games with the leading Colleges and Universities of Maryland, Delaware and Washington. At the be- ginning of the season with the experience of last year before us, our hoj)es of winning a fair percentage of the 119 games on the schedule were very small, but this year the foot-ball team has proved what good coaching and earnest and systematic training will do for a team. Manager Walls very wisely secured the services of a coach. Mr. John Markey of Frederick, coached the team, and by his earnest efforts the team gained the position from which it had gradually fallen since ' q6, and was one of the best teams in the State. Although it did not win as many games as it lost, it played the leading Universities to a stand-still. So that former scores over us were very much reduced and in some cases eliminated. After a long wait on account of various colleges not observing their contracts, and cancelling games, the season opened by a game with the University of George- town. Here our men were up against older and heavier men and we lost by a rather large score, but we were shown our weak points and set about to correct them. The next game was played with Mt. St. Joseph College. At this game Capt. Dunbar concluded to give up foot- ball for the rest of the season as his right leg was broken in the first ten seconds of play. The team being wrought up at seeing their captain so severely dealt with, mus- tered their powers and defeated their opponents from Baltimore. The most cerditable showing the team made, was on Thanksgiving Day at Newark. After a long and tire- some trip, we played Delaware College to a stand-still. neither side scoring. The College defeated us last year by a large score, and were determined to repeat the act. f ne thing was very noticeable this year: namely, the college sjiirit which manifested itself by the interest the students took in the team. Heretofore interest in foot- ball matters generally had the appearance of being at a very low ebb. The management of the team was of first-class order. Major Walls brought the team tlirough the season with a small eN]jenditure of funds, yet with a good schedule. The team was composed of some veterans who had been in the game for sevei al years and some men who were strangers to the .game, but they got into shape quickly and proved to be first-class players. No regular captain was made after Capt. Dunbar ' s injury, but Smith, right end, ran the team most successfully of all the several players who acted as captain. He is a man to be depended upon, always a good, strong player. Naylor at tackle is of great strength to the line. Fes- myer ' s kicking was above the ordinar} ' , and at kick-off he would seldom fail to put the ball behind the oppo- nent ' s goal. StoU at left end is a hard and sure tackier. Of the backs Brown and Duganne gained the most ground. Mathews at times played a brilliant game. The base-ball team of ' 03 promises to he a very good one. There are several of the old team back, and it is expected that there will be a fierce competition for the positions on the team. Manager Collier has not com- pleted his schedule, but has arranged a Southern trip. Smith has been elected captain, and will prove a good man for the place. He never loses his head in a critical moment and is a man for whom the boys will play ball. Football Team of Nineteen-Three. « t f E, B. Dunbar, Captain. E. P. Walls, Manager. W. R. Mitchell, Cnitcr.

Capt. Dunbar is a man of exceptional al ilit ' lioth in tlic run- ning of the team and individual phiymg. The accident above mentioned dejjrived our team of one of its strong- est players, and we have no doubt at all that if he had played throughout the season, the good record of the team would have been made better.

They hauled out wagons by the score. And carts and machines, ' till there were no more. With all this truck to the barracks they went, On secret fun and mischief bent. They paid no heed to the watchman ' s bawl, But piled this stuff on the President ' s Hall. III. This devilish band then just for fun. Went to the Science Hall for a skeleton. They diked this stiff all nice and warm In Commie ' s full-dress uniform; They raided next the Profs ' mess hall — Went in with naught, came out with all. They took out the chairs and hid them away — The Prof ' s had to stand at breakfast they say. IV. The fun was kept up ' till about 3.15 — ' Twas indeed a glorious Hallowe ' en, But Captain suspected what the boys would do. So he ordered Johnnie Green and his labor crew To go out in force at break of day And clean the wreck and rubbish away The men worked hard with horses three And had things straight by Reveille. — H.

ISO A Few Incidents of the Southern Baseball Trip, g===s) X the eventful morning of April the gtli, 1903, our baseball team, under the management of Athletic Director C. S. Richardson and Manager J. P. Collier, embarked for the Sunny South. It was a typical Spring day, the birds in the trees were singing sweetly, and the flowers diffused their sweet fragrance. But notwithstanding this, the boys were in gloomy spirits, and at the first stop, Washington College, the Manager insisted upon the team alighting, and par- ticipating in a gameof " Ping Pong " to steady ournerves, but finding that this proposition did not meet with ap- proval, he decided to visit Bell ' s Photographic Studio, so as to leave something behind to be remembered by. From here we went to the Pennsylvania Depot, boarded the 10.46 A. M. train, and were soon whirling through good Old Virginia, thinking that our fate would likely be akin to that of the " Noble Six Hundred, " which Tennyson describes in " TheChargeof the Light Brigade. " The scenery from Washington to Fredericksburg was very beautiful. The railroad skirted the picturesque Potomac for some distance, and there were many in- teresting sights to occupy the minds of all. " Eddie, " seeing a boat on the river, asked Prof. Richardson how it is that those steam boats can sail the winds. But all things have an end, as did this first delightful ride. We arrived at Fredericksburg at 12.40 P. M.,and there received a hearty welcome, which is characteristic of Virginian hospitality. After partaking of a sump- tuous repast, at a board presided over by the fair sex, we donned our newuniforms of pearl and maroon, stejiped upon the field, and announced to Fredericksburg that we were ready for battle. The result of the game may easily be given in the immortal words of Ceasar, " Veni, vidi, vici " — which liberally translated, means, " We licked the everlasting stuffing out of the Fredericksburg team. " A score of 8 — 2 in our favor tells the rest of the tale. 151 Upon leaving Fredericksburg we went to Ashland, to cross bats with Randolph — Macon, who were reported to have the strongest team they had put in the field for several years, and who confidently expected to win the Inter-Collegiate championship of Virginia. We had most royal treatment at the hands of the Randolph- Macon boys, who not only took care of us in the day time but also serenaded us at night. The liberality of our hosts prevented Manager Collier from having anv mis- givings as to his " locals. " This team had played such a creditable game with Gettysburg, a few days before, that it gave them the idea that M. A. C. would be an " easy thing. " They had a " crack " pitcher, whom they claimed nobody had so far been able to toucli. Well, the game began; and Randolph-Macon easilv proved her claim to having a splendid baseball team; but our boys seemed to be inspired, and a better exhibition of baseball was never seen on an Amateur field. Nicholls played the " game of his life, " and it was all that Prof. Richardson could do to convince the facultv of Ran- dolph-Macon that " Nick " was not Hugh Jennings in disguise. In fact every man on our team played an almost errorless game. No matter what kind of ball the opposing pitcher delivered, — inshoot, outshoot, or drop-our Ijatters were able to find it, and had it not been for the really beautiful fielding of the other team, it would have required the application of higher mathe- matics to compute the score. However we were satis- fied with the record of 5-2. But let us say just here, that a finer lot of fellows than those at Randol])h-Macon cannot be found on the face of the earth. They man- fully kept back their tears, while they offered us con- gratulations and the hand of good fellowship. When we left Ashland that night, a large number of the College boys went down to the station to see us off, and gave us such a hearty serenade, with " Maryland, My Maryland " and other appropriate songs, that we were led to conclude that such good fellows as thev reallv deserved to win. We went to Richmond that night, put up at a first- class hotel, enjoyed a stroll through that historic old city, and then got a good night ' s rest, in preparation for the next day ' s game. (We neglected to mention that before retiring Gassaway wrote a ten-page letter, addressed to the La Fetre Hotel, Washington, D. C.) The next morning we got an early start enroute Hamp- den-Sydney, near Farmville a distance of some seventy miles from Richmond. Manager Collier, always on the alert for a financial advantage, discovered that he could save 30 cents liy l ' ing over for five hours at Burkeville — a most God-forsaken little village, somewhere in the swamps of Virginia. We also stayed three hours at this same place upon ovir return. The general opinion of this town may be expressed in the remarks of Phil Robb, who said: " When I get old and have but a short time to live, I expect to come to Rurkeville; for twelve months here will seem like one hundred years. " Well, we got our dinner here, and we understand now that the next day, the hotel proprietor had to appoint a tru.stee in bankruptcy. About 3 o ' clock in tl;e after- 152 noon, we reached Farmville. and arrived at Hampden- Sydney, after a hack-drive of seven miles. We found the foe already in war-paint, and waiting for our scalps. As soon as the game was begun we realized that our team was in terrible shape. The game of the day before had put several of our men out of the business — Smith had a broken finger; Nicholls, a sjjrained arm; and two games in succession bad put Brown out of shaj e. Be- fore we knew what had struck us, the Haniixlen-Sydney boys had made six or se ' en runs, and bade fair to win the game in a walk, Something had to i:.e done, and that quickly, if we wished to make any showing at all. So our Captain ordered a general shifting of ].iositions. Nicholls went to first; Bradfield, to short; Smith, to right field; Fesmeyer in th.e box; and Rassett, behind the bat. Then the tables were turned. Fe.smeyer sent the ball in like it was shot out of a cannon, and the op- posing liatters " took to the woods. " When the final smoke of battle cleared away, we had twelve runs to Hampden-Sydnev ' s seven. We stayed at Hampden- Sydney all night and were most kindly and hospitably entertained. The next day was Easter Sunday. We returned to Richmond that night. (Jn Monda}- morning we went to Williamsliurg, where we were to play William and Mar} During our entire trip in Virginia we were con- .stantly jiassing through sections rich in historic interest; but in this respect Williamsburg was the most interesting place of all. We saw here the remains of the old House of Burgesses, in which Patrick Henry made his im- mortal speech; the house which Washington made his headquarters during his march to Yorktown ; the old brick Arsenal, used during the Revolutionary War. And we were rather startled to know that we played our game of ball on the historic battle-field of Williams- burg. But what of the game! Why we won of course, and onlv let our opponents ofi by a score of 12-3. At night our boys were invited to a German at the College Hall, and it is said that in the game of hearts they also niade a creditable score. Here also we were treated with the greatest hospitality. From Williamsburg we went to Newport News, where we were to ])lav the local Athletic Association, one of the star members of the Southern League. Unfortunately rain prevented the game; but as the boys were stopping at a good hotel, and were entertained by pretty girls, not even " Tessie " grumbled. Wood fell in love and Collier got his " locals. " li all the members of the New- port News team were as genial and considerate as their Manager, Mr. Dennie, we regret that we did not see more of them. On the next day, Wednesdav, we went to Old Point to ])lay the Artillery School of Fort Mon- roe. Here we had a most deliglitful time. We went through the Chamberlain, one of the most magnificent hotels on the face of the earth; spent a cou])le of hours inspecting the fort; and to cap the climax of our pleasant experience, chartered a launch and went out to the battleship, Maine, where obliging officers took us all over this noble vessel, and pointed out and exjilained all the points of interest; but Brown and Pyles said they 153 never expected to get back alive, and both of them had corns and blisters on their hands, where they fastened with death-like grip upon the iron framework of the naphtha launch. Brown said that boat could beat him all hollow pitching a curve. Pyles didn ' t say anything, for the roof of his mouth was just then occupied by the left ventricle of his heart. We will admit that we were all a trifle scared 1iefore we went into the game that afternoon with the doughty soldier boys. These chaps had held Cornell University to a very close score, and had recently broken almost even with the Philadelphia Professional Team. The game was played down at the Soldiers ' Home, near Hamjjton. When our boys found that for some strange reason, all of the old soldiers were rooting for M. A. C. they took a decided brace, and determined then and there to pull ofT another victory. What we did to those soldier boys that day will go down in the annals of his- tory. Tliey entirely lost the location of third base, knew little or nothing of second, and were hardly on speaking terms with first. The best gunner they had couldn ' t pierce our armor-plate. In short, they didn ' t make a run — while we rolled up a pretty score of six. The old soldiers shouted themselves hoarse, and said they hadn ' t had so much fun since the battle of Gettys- burg. Before we leave the details of base ball, it mav be mentioned that Brown pitched everv game but one. Bassett was behind the bat in four and a half games. NichoUs, Smith, and Brown gave a continuous perfor- mance with the stick. At seven o ' clock on Wednesday evening, we took the steamer Washington, at Old Point, enroute for M. A. C; and if any band of men ever had a right to feel happy and contented, it was our base ball team; they had played five straight games of ball, against fresh and strong teams, on different grounds, with hostile umpires, and had won them all. We believe this record, con- sidering the peculiar conditions, has no parallel in the history of College base ball. And in addition to all this, our boys by their gentlemanly conduct and courteous manner gained friends and admirers wherever they went, and estal)lished an enviable reputation for Old M. A. C. The trijj on the boat was uneventful save that Pyles slept all night in a life-preserver and Collier didn ' t sleep a wink for joy. We reached the College on Th.ursilay morning, where we were met by our honored President, with his face wreathed in smiles. And a right good dinner he gave us, in acknowledgment of our successful trip. The general verdict was that every one had had a most delightful time, and had been greatly benefited b} ' this trip through historic and hospitable Virginia. " One of the Te. .m.

With face calm and serene, The doughty Captain Dunbar, Of the M ' . a. C. foot-ball team. His right leg had been broken In a game of ball that day; Snapped by a foul tackle. While making a beautiful play. And though he was ghastly white. And suffered intense pain, He cried again and again to his friends, " I hope we ' ll win the game. " We knew the lad was a hero, For he didn ' t give a groan; Altho ' the doctor hurt him much When he set the broken bone. The leg was placed in plaster cast. And on his back he lay, With never a murmur or complaint ; A month he had to stay. And when he had got better And the time had come to part. We nurses found the noble boy Had captured many a heart. 156 What We Know of The Faculty. f 4 % R. W. Silvester.

She sat upon the hallway steps, Enjoying the evening air; He shyly asked her for a seat. And she gave him a vacant stare. SOME VARIATIONS. To shave vour face and brush your hair. And then your new best suit to wear — That ' s preparation. And then upon the car to ride A mile or two, and walk beside — That ' s transportation. And then before tlie door to smile To think you ' ll stay a good long while — That ' s expectation. And then to find her not at home. That homeward you will have to roam — That ' s thunderation. rf " .. - . .- w.u-,t " rS 159 Between T .ps a nd Reveille. g===S As I sit o ' er books and ponder, Come the soft sweet notes of taps; Then I cease to study longer, And put on my nightly wraps. Then as I lay me down to sleep To find a needed rest My brain instead will always peep Among those that I love best. To my home it first does wend its way, To visit loved ones there. And to tliy home it then does stray, To visit you, my dear. And methinks while in this state of rest, I can see your angel form; Can feel your head upon my breast, And around my neck, your arm. Methinks I can see vour loving smile. And feel your breath, my dove; As I hold 3 ' ou closely to my side. And whisper words of love. No love could with my love compare When you softly whispered, " Yes, " And promised with me always to share Prosperity or distress. 1 fancied I would gladly die For that one word from thee; When shriller than a panther ' s cry Come the notes of Reveille. Then so suddenly as comes the angel of death. Ended all sweet dreams of you; And I whispered with a reverent breath, Would to God my dream were true. -J.J.A.K. 1 60 (S==,S This sport, as plainly you can see, Having nothing else to do, Wrote what follows for the " Reveille, ' So read a word or two.

We have grown fond of this child of our brain — perhaps fonder than its quality merits. If you have followed us through the pages of the " Reveille " you must feel a passing sympathy with our efforts. It is because we felt that we would have that sympathetic support that we were encouraged to go on. We rejoice in what is good in the book ; we feel the grief of a parent for whatever faultiness it may display ; and finally we thank you, one and all for your generous patronage and support.
