V 1 t -J Pref ace HE EDITORIAL STAFF, rcprcscntiiiii- the Class of Nineteen ilnndred and Five, in presenting this, the ninth vokmie of the " Reveille, " ' has endeavored to make the book worthy of the class and of the college. It has been our endeavor to chronicle the events in as interesting a manner as possible, and while we do not entertain the hope of pleasing all, we ask that you at least appreciate our efforts in so far as they deserve merit. The various strdent organizations have lieen treated impartially, and we liave tried to give each as much space and pnniinence as is consistent with the size of our book. If any one thinks he has been " roasted " too severely, we wish to say that we have given what the occasion seemed to deir.and and have been moved by no persijnal motives whatever. We wish here to extend our thanks and appreciation to those who have so kindly cooperated with us in the production of this work. And now, with the feeling that we have not labored in vain and with the hope that this work will be a lasting credit to the class and to the college, we cease from those long hours of toil necessary in the production of such a work.

It was here that " Glen " received his early education, and graduated from the Snow Hill High School in the spring of i ;02, with high honors. In the fall of the same year he entered the Sophomore Class at M. . . C, and has since distinguished himself in scholastic work. Never, as far as we know, imtil this ear, has " Glen " been infatuated with the fair sex, and even now we are inclined to excuse him and put the blame on our classmate from the mountains, with whom he has been known to associate. While " I ' lrother " has never figured very i)rominently in athletics, his interest is none the less. He has been known to play checkers on several occasions and once to engage in a game of ping-pong. As .shown 1)y the list of honors above, " Cden " is one of the most trustworthy, |)o]nilar and capable members of our class. He is not only extremely popular with his own class and the student body, but is respected for his merits by every nieml.ier if the Facult ' with whom he has come into contact.

It does not seem ]iossihle. nor even probable, that we are alioiit to ha e iilaced upon our shoulders the manifold hard- ships of life, but it is nevertheless true, and we must rise to meet all rei|uirements. )ur career at the Maryland Ai rieultural College has been a notable one. At times the outlook has been clark and stormv. but trust to " Xauphty five " to come out of the big- end of the horn. Not alwavs the best end, but nevertheless the big end. The nucleus of this notable class gathered at the College in Se])tember of the ear i ,oi. to learn of the mysteries which were enshrouded within the old walls and which were secretly imported to bona fide members onl . The Sopho- more Class were a kindly set of fellows and quickly let us in on all the secrets, and they practicall ' illustrated all the instruuients used in their luxsterious ])roceedings. If my memor - does not fail me. 1 recall the chief instrument as a long slat com- monly known among the initiated as a " persuader. " Along its side there was deeply carved the word " Rat, " so that every love lick of this ajiparatus branded the unfortunate x ' ietim with this endearing term. As time wore in we became more versed in the different phases of collegiate life, until in June of i )02 we went gaily home to return in Se])tember glorying under the hallowed name of " ( )ld Boy. " ( )ur class had somewhat decreased from its original ntnuber. but we had some valuable additions from among the new boys, and with a goodly number we entered gallantly upon the luties of the hardest knockeil class in any college, the Sophomore. We furnished orr full (;uota of athletic men to the various college teams, and for a testimonial of their good work -ou need only to scan the records. Hy diligent work we cpiickly climbed the lailder until the jimior ])ortals were thrown o]ien to receive us. L ' pon returning in September, i )03, we found to oiu ' regret that our number had greatly diminished ; in fact, made smaller by a half, for now we could muster only twent ' men. I ' .ut these twenty, like the Spartans of old, (li l not rel ' upon nundiers alone, Init upon (piality, and entered rpon the Junior duties as men. r.y this time some slight thought of the responsibilities of life be.gan to creep into the minds of this famous old class. The obstacles that were put in the way were surmounted, one after another; higher and higher was set the standard and ever onward we rushed to attain it. ( )bstacles. lid 1 sa -, well rather barriers, for 29 I doubt if there has ever been a class at this old institution that has had to pass through a network, set so dexterously to entangle a foot that might for a moment go astray. I ' .ut wlicn a comrade did get entangled through some misfortune other than pure maliciousness, the class, as (jue man was ever ready to stand by and lend a hel])ing hand. Tile nucleus of the varous teams was again called forth from our class and did the excellent work which has always been one of its chief characteristics. The Christmas exams, were soon over, Easter came and went, and June with its final examinations loomed up dark before us. Nothing daunted, we worked gallantly onward, the final exams, came and went, and we stood clothed in the garments of the Senior Class. The pride of that moment is far beyond the power of mv pen to picture to you, and I will not tire you with my weak efforts. We were proud. Let it go at that. This vacation, as all vacations have the detestable haljit of doing, passed all too quickly, and we returned to college to take up the responsibilities of the Senior Class. These responsibilities we cheerfully accepted and carried out, we earnestly ho]je. to the satisfaction of those in authority ox ' cr us. ( )ur class had by this time decreased to the number of fourteen, but we yet fin-nishe(l a g lly number to participate in athletics. The Senior year passed swiftly by, and we stand before you, four years ' work completed, we hope, satis- factorily, and read ' to step out into this old w(}rld to see what she has in store for us. We do not think lightl ' (if it. nor do we supi);ise that there is any thing but the best expected of us, and we ho] e that when in later years you hear of good and noble achievements, and look out over the hills towards the origin of them, you may see, floating ]iroudl_ - in the breeze, the lUue and Gold of Nineteen-five. HlSTOHI.W. Prophecy of the Class of 1 905 P(.)N BEING chosen by my classmates to prophecy thc-ir futures and lay them bare before the public, I imniediatel}- set to work to fold back the misty curtains that intervened between the present and what was yet tn come, so that we might see clearly what was in store for us. 1 realized at once that m ' task was no easy one. That the future of every man was somewhere clearly plotted out, I felt quite sure, for the sages and prophets of old advanced the theory, and it is not for me to dciubt their words. For months I searched in vain, imtil one da ' while in Washington, I chanced to see upon a theatre billboard the following inscrii)tit n : " Keller, the world ' s greatest magician and hypnotist. " As 1 read these wiirds, a hap]iy thuught occurred to me, and it was this: " Why should 1 not go to see .Mr. Keller, tell him what I souglit, and ask for advice. If he could not tell me, then who could? " And so 1 went, not to the theatre, but to his rocmi in the hotel. 1 was cordially received and attentively listened to. and when 1 had tinished, he smilingly said: " My dear sir. you need worry no longer, for 1 think 1 can put ' ou in possession of the details for which (iu are searching. ' nu don ' t mind l)eing hypnotized do } ' ou ? " And upon my assurance that I did nut mind, he arose and came towards me. The smile wore from his lips and he was all seriousness. " I am going to send your mind to ln lia. " he said, " and there ujion the banks of the Ganges, just twenty-three miles from l.vicknow, is an old mon- astery that was inhabited thousands of years ago by magicians. In it to-da ' lives the King of Magicians. He is many hundreds of years old, and has power that will enable him to get the information that you desire about your classmates. " " Now while one is hypnotised he sees and hears many things, but remembers none of them u])on waking, so if while in the trance, you will tell me what is occurring. 1 will write it down so that yon may have it when ou awake. " With this he looked me steadily in the eyes a moment, made a few passes, and my eyes began to close, for 1 felt a great temptation to slee]). 1 remember nothing else until I heard a clap of the hands and some one saying, " Vou are awake. " In obedience my eyes opened, and there sat i lr. Keller smiling at me. and before him on the table lay several sheets of paper covered with writing. These he handed to me. saying, " There is your experience, and a notable one it is. " I thanked him a thousand times for his help, and, taking my leave. I hastened home to read those precious ])apers. It appears that in ni}- trance i first found myself before the massive tloor of 31 the monastery, and upon lifting and letting fall the great rusted knocker, was admitted 1 - the magician, who evidently expected my coming. His hair and beard were snow wliite and his quick eyes shone like heads of hre. lie was clothed in robe and sandals resembling closely the nld Roman costume. With- out a word he conducted me alnng massive dark halls and at last into a great riKim. the magniticence of which 1 will nnt attempt Ui describe. lie motioned to a seat and then (|uestioned as tn who had S " nt me and what 1 wanteil. L ' pon telling him, he asked for the names of my classmates, and wrote each name upon a separate piece of paper. He then rang a clear silvery bell that hung directly over the table, and into the room there stepped a servant, black as the ace of spades, yet arrayed in a spotless white toga. Without looking up, the magician said : " Send me fourteen of my elves. " The servant retired with a low bow, and almost immediately there came in four- teen droll little elves, and as I looked I thought of the stories of Ri]) ' an Winkle. These little fellows quickly arranged themselves in a semicircle in front of the magician and dropped on the right knee. The magician handed each a paper with a name upon it, and said : " I want you to hunt up the records for the next twenty years to come and find, at the end of that time, what each of these men has done. " The elves bowed low and retired. The magician threw some blue powder on a fire that burned brightly on the other side of the room, and then chatted pleasantly upon several topics until, in a surprisingly short while, the little elves came back, each with his sheet written full. These the old man read to me in ahibabetical order, and this is what he read : ISyron, W. Id., Ijetter known as " I ' u.g " to his classmates, went into the leather business after his graduation, and now owns the largest tannery in the world — that of Williamsport, Maryland. While at college he was rather shy when around the ladies, but the latest reports have it that he is now often seen making his way to a certain house with his guitar under his arm. There he sings and plays to a p-rett dreamy-eyed maiden until the wee small hours of the morn. " I ' ug " was ever a hustler; he has done well in business ; has several im|)i)rt:nit inventions to his credit, among them an instrument for measuring the area of an irregular surface — an instrument vastly important in the measure of hides. .Mr. r. ron has also dabbled in iiolitics. and has been vary successful therein. If rumor has it correct, and we have no good reason to doubt it. he is a candidate for the next governor of .Maryland, and stands far in advance ' in the f;ivor of the people. We wish him a victorious cami aign. Cockcy. J. C. After his i raduation from M. A. C. " Jack " entered the draft- ing dejiartnient df the Westinghouse Electric Comiiany. and 1) diht;ent apphca- tiiin. rose rapidly, until he is now in charge of the entire department. " Jack " has made one great change in the department, that is. the introduction of drafts- women instead of draftsmen. lie finds the work far easier, and ci rtainly far more to his liking, lie says his only trouble is that the women want to ilo all the hossing. and he has to acce])t the jay for it as if he had done it himself. Althongli he is much occriiied with his work, especially those who do the work, he always finds time to run down to his big farm at Owings Mills, where his wife and little Jack eagerly await his coming. He still retains his love for the military, and has risen to commaixl of the State militia, of which he was a member when still at M. . . C. lie has made many improvements in the military of the State, and his State appreciates the fact. r ig.ges. . 1). Those who knew " (irimes " best in his college days might have guessed that he would adopt the motle of life which he has taken uj) — the job of living easy on an immense tobacco ])lantation, the largest in the State of Mar land. " ( " .rimes " always did know good tobacco when he saw it. lie was able to stand upon the tennis court at college and tell you what kind of tobacco was being smoked b} ' a boy who was leaning (;ut of a window on the top Hour of the Iwrracks. A man w ith so delicate a recognition of tobacco would have lieen doing his State an injustice by .going into anything other than toliacco growing. His shyness when around the ladies soon wore off, and it was impossible for him to remain a bachelor. His eldest son is following in his father ' s footsteps, and is doing well at M. A. C. We wish him his father ' s success. Duckett. M.. the largest real estate man and financier of the day, has made a great success in his profession. While at M. . . C. he took the mechanical coiH ' se. but he soon found that to handle real estate and real cash was more in his line. He no sooner came to this conclusion than he acted upon it. He has certainly succeeded, for it is rumored that he tires of cornting his money. Al- though a shrewd real estate man. he was not shrewd enough for a young miss who lived in the vicinit ' of his old home, for she soon had him ro])ed in c mi- ])letelv. The ha])py pair now live in Washington, and although Washington has fine amusements and s])lendid o|)portunities for rowing and yachting, there seems to be a peculiar fascination for them in the little branch of I ' dadensburg. They sometimes row up and down this stream for hours and chat about old college 3,1 days, tlie storming and capture of Hyattsville on Hallow ' ecn nii lit of njos, and of the famous HooUy Gang that once existed in these parts. Hayman. E. T.. the noted pedestrain of the class, went, in the fall of 1905, to Panama to participate in the construction of the canal. The climate was ex- tremely warm, but " Chief " did not mind perspiring, and he never gave up when surrounded by adverse circumstances. By his diligence and marked ability he soon rose to the position of inspecting engineer, and it is a well founded fact that the successful completion of the greatest of all canals is largely due to the skill and untiring efforts of Engineer Hayman. IJut Edgar soon tired of life in the tropics, and realized that in old Worcester he could be more content than anywhere else. The interest which he had always had in the oyster industry was newly aroused on his return, and the tremendous stimulus given to the oyster industry in the State of Maryland, where he owns many large packing houses, was brought about by him. Having seen the Hayman Oyster Bill passed, he now resides on the sea shore of old Worcester, where, with the sweetheart of his col- lege da s and little Edgar to cheer his heart, he lives in perfect contentment. Krentzlin, j. J. A., as was prophesized by his classmates at college, made a name for himself in the electrical world. He entered the Revenue Cutter Service soon after leaving M. A. C, but finding his sphere too narrow and aspiring to higher things, he left the service and entered Cornell University, where for four years he pursued the study of Electrical Engineering. Having shown his remarkable ability as an electrical engineer while a student, immediately upon graduation he was offered the chair of Electrical Engineering in that university, and accepted the same. His name having been blazoned abroad so much before, it was not surprising to the scientific world when it was announced that the Kreutzlin s stem of wireless telephony was C( mpleted. the greatest and most suc- cessful inxention the world has seen along electrical lines. The Kreutzlin wire- less telephone is a small intrument tliat may be carried in itie vest jjocket, and hv jjressing a button, the owner can talk to anyone, anywhere at an - time. Professor Kreutzlin has written several works on electrieitw among them " The Development of Wireless Telephony. " " l- ' kctrical Eights in the College, " and " How to Prevent College Students from Burning t )ut Fuses. " The Pro- fessor and his charming wife, a one-time Southern belle, reside in Ithaca, where thev are great favorites, es]5eciall ' with the university students. .Mackall. j. Xathaniel. Tlie summer after his graduation at . l. A. C, " Kal " began work with the .Marsland ( eological Survey, k ' inding the woi ' k here too 34 limited and tlie salary too small, he set sail for the Fiji Islands in the fall of lyio, to find a broader field in which to labor, lly his untiring energy and ready adapt- ability to the manners and customs of the natives, he was soon promoted to the ])osition (if Chief of tlie Highway Division of the Fiji Island Geological Survey. " Rat " ever kept in mind on his old question: " What ' s home without a wife? " which we heard st) nuich at college, and it was with little surprise that we find him returning in a few years to Prince Frederick to claim the fair damsel of his choice. John felt that his real home was with the Islanders, and after a few months ' sojourn in his native State he, with his liride, returned to live with the Fijis, where he rightly belongs. Xicholls. R. I). Soon after his graduation " Xick " decided that his future lay in the study of medicine, and so in the fall of 1905 he entered Georgetown University, to pursue his studies. We heard little of him for four years, but at the end of that time there suddenl)- apjjeared a Dr. R. I). Xicholls upon the Inorizon. Dr. Xicholls is known throughout the entire ci ilized world on account of his great discovery of " How to keep college bo s awake. " In his college days he was troubled so much by the great temptation to doze that he devoted a con- siderable time to the study of this disease, and has at last introduced his great remedv. Dr. Xicholls has made a great success in his chosen profession, and is to-day one of the leading physicians of the country. So well was his ability recog- nized that at the meeting of the Associated Doctors of America, a few days ago, he was unanimously voted the presidency of the association, a position that can be reached by none except the greatest physicians. Mrs. .Xicholls is justly proud of her husband and in his new capacity. After graduating from the Maryland Agricultural College in June, 1005, " Ape " pursued still further his favorite study — chemistry. He spent two years in the laboratory at M. . . C. at which time, after diligent work and constant application, he resigned to take a better position at the University of ' irginia. But with all his work " Ape " never lost tl-.e soft spot that he always had in his breast for the ladies while at M. A. C. " Ape " was about as fickle as he was industrious, and while we expected him to marrv a girl of his native town (and so did she), we were s ' ddenly surprised bv the news that he had married Miss I ' dank. of Charlottsville. ' a. The Parker ])rocess of making iron has made him fanmus. lie is now head of the Department of Chemistry at the University of N ' irvinia. and in the eyes of 35 scientific men he is one of the ablest men of to-day in the field of Inorj;anic Chemistn-. Smith. W. ' 1 " Smitty " liked nolhini;- better than a good game of liall, and so after his graduation he went South to play in the big Southern league, inci- dentally to rest from his scholastic work before entering upon a business career. It could not be ex];ected that he could resist the demure Southern maidens, and so when he returned to his native State, some eighteen months later, .Mrs. Smith accompanied him. Mr, .Smith graduated from M. . . C. as a mechanical engineer, and has continued along that line. He is now the most successful contracting engineer in the country, and his yearly dividends would make John 1). Rocke- fellow blush for shame. .Mr. Smith ' s latest and greatest achievement was the construction of a susiiension bridge across the I ' atomac at one of its widest parts. It is a structure svcb as mechanical men came miles to see. Mr. Smith has just cliisetl his summer home and started for a trij) al)road with his wife and family. Sonimerville, J. W. 1 ' . " Stubl)y " now owns and operates several of the largest coal mines about Cumberland, lie has made inventions and improvements in mining that have sa ed the li ' es of thousands of the men who toil under ground. This an l his abilit ' to handle matters financial has placed him well forward in the ranks of the Captains of Industry. " vStubby ' s " weak point, his admiration for the l;idies, soon got the better of him, and not long after his grad- uation, he swept down u])on the little townshiii of llerwyn and carried away one of its damsels, lie was pursued, of course, but " Stubby " was always able to handle those legs of his, and so got away with his jirize. He is also treasurer of the jNIarvland . thletic . ssociation. and his training in collecting athletic dues at college now st.-uids him in good stead. It is rumored that he can pull a man out of bed in the sm;ill hours of the night and make him ])ay his dues, in fact, " Stubb} " says that it is the best plan ; for the man is so s!ee] ' that he i)ays almost any sum to be left alone. Suavely, E, I I. ' I he er - summer that he left college, he entered the Revenue Cutter Serxici ' . ' y the diligent work which had always characterized him at college, he ro. e to first lieiUenant, ard soon afterward to cajitain of the neatest and swiftest craft in the service.

" v turgis, C. Cden always wa.s a speaker, in fact, he is said to have lieeii ahle to talk when only a few weeks old. The politicians of Snow Mill recei ed him with open arii ' s, and almoit before he realized it, he found himself in the State Senate. . ' ow Senator Sturgis alway.s was a leveldieadcd fellow, and his first act in the Senate was the presentation of a bill to improve his . Iliini ,! . r ill many ways. The bill, under the Senator ' s elo(|uent giiidaiKW went tliroiii b without a hitch, and the old college is much indelted to him. for. b this bill, its beauty and efficiency was increased one hrndred per cent. Now Glen, like " Stubby, " had a longing in his heart for old I ' lcrwMi. lie also made a swoop upon tlie town and carried off a bride, and was also pursued. He got as far as Paint Branch liridge when he was overtaken. I le (|nickl ' mounted the side of the bridge, and so great was his eloquence that he i|uelled the raging multitude and was allowed to proceed in peace. State Senator is all right, but why stop tliere? And so in Kiio he was sent to Washington as the Senator from Maryland. White, W., to his classmates known as " Fes, " pcrsued his study if mathe- matics and civil engineering, of which he was especially fond, and after two years went to South America as Government Surveyor, lie did well in this cajiacity. brt soon tired of the climate and the copper-colored damsels of that region, and returned to his native State. As good fortune would lia e it. he returned just in time to find vacant the chair of Mathematics at the Maryland Agricultural College. This fine position was offered him and he immediately accepted. .Ml of his old friends were indeed glad to have him back among them and hoped that be would stay, but they were doomed to disa])poinlment, for after two years and a half, the Professor introduced a new mathematical science, and was very shortly after called to accept the chair of Mathematics at Harvard I ' niversily. The Professor and his wife there kept o]X ' n house to the strdents, by whom he is held in high esteem. " xAlthough Harvard is all right " says the I ' nd ' essor. " 1 think I shall send little Wellstood, jr.. down to .M. . . C, where he can gel the benefit of a militarv traininsr. " 37 Ode of the Class of 1905 Air, The Marseillaise Words by J. A.

There oi;r triumphs first were gained. For our athletes worked and trained For the football teams, and claimed Part of the skill that made us famed, As a School with winning teams. But, athletics soon did end (They tell me all things have that trend.) We took leave on our first holiday. For home once more all free and gay, . nd " Thanksgiving Turkey " put away; This, the Class of igoA. Wlicn to College w returned. With hard work we were concerned. E. ams. again stared iii our faces. 42 These completed, we retreated To our homes with quickened paces. Ah! How well do I remember That home-going in December; And how, returning, we related That this Christmas should be rated, Best that we had ever known — All the Class of 1906. Three long months then dragged away, With lots of work and little play. Often we would sit and ponder On some things the poets say — " Absence makes the heart grow fonder, ' Which to us seemed that it may Have been written by a " jay, " Or one knowing not his business anyway. Yes, that time was very blue (I remember well, — Don ' t you. ' ) for the Class of 1906. Then came Easter, and with that, Manv games with ball and bat. In baseball we now " stood pat, " " Rooted " we, " ( )1(1 Boy, " and " Rat. " We recalled the three months lowly, That had gone so very slowly. And thev seemed like dreams unholy. For our Campus now was seen Changed from gray to brightest green, . nd spring cast a clear, bright sheen C) ' er the Class of 1906. Final exams, now drew near. But our class had little fear; For, to most of us, the work Was a task we did not shirk. The little hardships they imposed. We still encountered with repose. These completed, quick we shifted From work to play, while sadness sifted 43 Tlirou,ijh a sic -c of pleasures stea(l -, I- ' or joys lit " I ' ' iiial Week " were ready lun- Ihe Class of u0 . In that week of fun and ])leasnre. Came experiences we treasure, For it held the fullest measure Of excitement mixed with leisure. Commencement and June Hall Us delighted, one and all. We, as " Old I ' .oys " left ' till fall. With no more " medicine " to pall L ' i)on us, as it had when we were " rats. " Now we were Soph ' mores, not still hrats In the Class of iijo( . When school convened, ' 06 was there With stout resolves to do and dare . nd no effort now to spare In exhihiting our share Of work and play. We knew in part. Our duties now ; and every heart Was pledged to deeper, harder study, liut one duty upon us fell For it was " up to us " to tell The " rats " how, with " persuaders, " we could spcll- " The Class of 1906. " In the fall of our second year, The Class of ' 06 hatl little fear It could not make itself the peer Of former classes, stranded here. Tills we think we did in ]iart. For our record from the start Had the " ( ). K. " mark u])on it. Some ' 03 man, " through his lionnet, " Said his class would gain great lame. If it fought a foothall game W ith the Class of Hpri. I wonder if the aforesaid and the same. Remembers the Soph-Junior football game : 44 And that his team sot Httle fame, F(ir this contest, far from tame. And this victory hard to get. With such things I must not fret My weary reader. This year passed, Like the former, and should he classed As one of much hard study, And of joys, whose glow was ruddy. For the Class of 1906. In this year, we began to view The aim of College life, with new And serious thoughts, and found it true. That to pass the Soph Class one must do The best he can. But time flew by And soon Commencement Day drew nigh. We now transferred the duties thrust Upon up for this year, and trust That we had shown ourselves full well Equipped, for doing what then fell To the Class of 1906. Many members then we lost. And returning, found at most. Only half the Class could boast Returning with us to our post. But, the few who did come back. Resolved manfull to attack Their work. ( )ne thing we learned — That the Juniors were concerned With attention to study and order, And we hope we have reached the border Set for the Class of lood. In athletics, as in past years, we appeared. And held our own, nor even feared The Soph-Junior Game, which cleared Us a score of six to " zip, " and cheered Us to bolder flights. The Sophs now may Claim the glory of this fray. But still the score stands plainly out 45 As the official record for this bout. (3f course, we do not mind what ' s said For zvc know that what stands head Is the Class of 1906. A concession that was granted us just now, (Putting Seniors, Sophs, and Juniors in one scow). Gave exemption from exams. This, to our brow. Brought smiles, provided we knew how To make a certain average mark In daily work. It ' s now like a " lark " To be free in exam, week. When you ' ve done work which will speak For itself. We now put in hard licks So that this average we can fix For the Class of 1906. Our Theatre-party-l ' .oys, have you forgotten that? And, how this day we stood quite " pat " With that sweet little bunch of " mat- inee girls? " But, my memory " plays me flat; " The real purpose for our hegira into town Was to have the Class-picture taken down At Bells. But business sometimes takes A purely second place, when one rakes Over old memories. So, for that reason. My putting pleasures first won ' t be treason To the Class of 1906. In looking backward. Classmates, we can feel That we ' ve " done ourselves proud " in every deal Of the past. But, from ourselves, we can ' t conceal The fact that, in the future, duty ' s appeal Will be more strongly sounded than before. And responsibilities will crowd us by the score. Let us then, like men, resolve to strive and do What is expected of us. and establish a new And glorious record for ourselves — the Senior Class. So that praises from the faculty, and other friends, may pass To the Class of 1906. 46 Good Luck to Naughty Six C. S. RidGeway S. P. ThOiiias O. V. WoQd R. F. GooDell H. D. WiLliar, Jr. H. J. CaUl R.

History of the Class of 1 907 UFA ' fi)i-ty-tive men entered the portals of the Maryland A.Ejri- cultnral College in September of the year 11)03, to take up their studies in the Freshman Class, it would have been hard to have found a more frightened lot of bo s than these forty- five. l!ut. after the first few weeks of torment (which all new l)oys at college must pass through) had been gotten over, the class conmienced to take f()rm and to be not niereh ' a bodv of boys thrown together in the same class. lUit seeing that their strength lay in their mnnber, they organized: and leaders sprang up. who. in nian - instances, showed great abilit}-. Once when the So])hs lieeame too obstre]X ' rous the class went out as a bodv and drove the Sophs within doors. This was something unusual, for the Fresh- men to get the upper hand of the Sophs, Nevertheless it was done in a fair fight, and the Freshmen were conceded the victory by the entire school. From this the class got down to hard work in their studies, and came well up to the mark in their Christmas examinations. From Christmas until Easter, was mostly hard study, and the entire class breathed a sigh of relief when they were ready to start home after having finished their FZaster exams. Hut now was the most pleasant part of the year, for the boys were able to be out doors and ]iarticipate in baseball and other atldetic s|)orts, so all were sorry when June came. ( )n retiu ' uing the following September they fomid their number greatly decimated, but several new members steppetl in td fill the vacant places. It ditl not take the class long to find out their increased ] ower as Sophs and old boys. Tiiey were very careful to see that no Freshman broke any of the traditions of the college. After they had reformed among the new boys, they commenced to go liigher and thought it time something should be done to ]}lace their class on record. In a short while the - jiledged themselves to the Faculty to observe the H onor System in theii " class and examination work. As usual, the Junior Class followed our lead, so in a few weeks they had established the same thing. The two classes met after Thanksgiving, in the annual Sophs-Junior game. it could hardly be called a game; for we outplayed the Juniors so much in the first half that when the whistle blew for the laeginning of the second half, there was not a Junior to be seen on tlie field. So they had to content themselves with a forfeited score to d to o. in [ilace of what in all likelihood would have been 100 tlT o. At Christmas several members of the class left, so we had to start in the new vear with a class greatlv diminished in number. P ut what we lost in numlx-r we gained in class spirit, . lthough it is Udt a very large class that stands on the threshold of Jun ior dignities, yet it is a class that will stick together and remain loyal to the Black and Red f ag of KJ07.

Every train was bringing scores of boys who were to undertake the trials of a college examination. Some of us took the examination for entering the Sopho- more Class, while the most of us tried for the Freshman Class. Many of us were successful, but a few failed. However, in whatever class we finally found ourselves, we gladh ' accepted our humble hit and entered with a spirit that was creditable to us all. The first few nights were sjx ' nt in arranging the scant supply of furniture .vhich we had brought with us, and we soon made ourselves comfortable. College opened on the fifteenth of September, and in less than three days we were busy, hammering away at our respective studies. Sonie were wont to neglect their studies and think of home. This home-sickness did not tarry long in the hearts of our seventy-eight memlicrs. as " College " at this time presented a most beautiful and welcome home. Tlie grand old building, nestled in a clump of trees like a chicken uniler its mother ' s wing. .Ml this and more seemed to drive away the home-sickness, and we were soon looking forward to our Thanksgiving holidays. During the period of time lietween the ojieiiing of school and Thanksgiving, a L;reat interest was manifested in football. We are ])roud to say that several mem- bers of our class took an active part in the many hard-fought battles on the gridiron. Thanksgiving came and passed so ra]iidly that we hardly realized it was here, and we were soon back to our studies. . t the time of this writing basket-ball is taking up the spare time of the boys. There is good material in the Class of ' 08 !or a good basket-ball team. We hope that some will make the first team, which promises to be a winner. Raseball is occupying the minds of our old stars, and we will no doubt sur- prise some of our old rivals when we meet them on the diamond this coming season. Let us hope that the Freshman Class will be well represented in this manly sport. The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas passed very quietly and no event of any great importance took place. When " Old Chris " did come, he was given a hearty handshake and a royal welcome by everybody. Every one imme- diately made ready and took the first train available and hurried homeward to vreet the loved ones who were waiting for him. Manv did not forget some cer- 55 hearts and smiling ' tacts tn greet dear old Ai. A. C. and wish her a liapp) ' Xew " ear, and to try for nuich better marks in our stuches than we made (hiring the last term. Spring now opens in all its glnry. allho ' somewhat late, and seems tn pnt new life intii mn- hoys wlm have been confined to the buildings must of the time during tile cold months of the year. The Campus presents a most animated appearance. Xuml;ers are i nt fnr the purjinse nf making the baseljall team, while others are training fur the track teani. The whole scene might lie compared with a huge imt-hill, so busy anil intent are they in their jiractice. Inauguration day comes ard goes and two hundre(l tired and dust}- boys return to the barracks for a good night ' s rest. That which now remains for I ' s is to finish up the year with the best possible records. ' e have all worked hard, but this term means study and lots of it. The boys set to work with a will and no doulit will cnnie out victors in the hard-fought battles with their studies. What now follows mrst 1.x- more of a prophecy than a history. Reveille is very soon going to press, and this ]irevents me from writing a complete history of the class of ' 08. ' e ])assed the wear - morth.s after Christmas until Easter, and many of us luu-rie l home after a long period of home-sickness and hard w-ork. The Ivister holidays canie and passed so rapidly that we hardly realized that w-e had been home, and we sometinies thought it more like a dream than a reality. Thanks to our instrrctors, the last few months passed most pleasantly and most rapidly. We must now prepare for our final exaniination. The finals came and passed, and we were ready to pack our trunks and return home for a long- stay, and bid good-bxe to Al. A. C. for the year, l ach and every member of the Freshman Class feels ])roud that he was one of the noisy, n-iischievous and busy class of naughty eight, who, with all due respect to those at honie, turns and looks back with loving e es at the musty walls of the buildings which are so dear to the liearts of all true lM " eshmen. The - bid tlum a last f:irewell till another year finds ihem tramping up the long lane to find a warm welcon-;e awaiting- those who ha -e spent so n-iany and prosperous hours in the rooirs and corridors of . 1. A. C " . One thing more: Let n-ie prophesy a great and prosperous future to each and every ii-iember of the largest Freshnian Class in the State of Marylanil.

MacSorlcy Zouek 78 New Mercer Literary Society JIIE Mercer Literary Society was first organized by Dr. Mercer, of New Orleans, in 1858. A great deal of interest was mani- fested by the students at the time of its organization, but in i88g, its membership having diminished so greatly, it ceased to exist. This society was again organized on January 13, 1892, with Mr. Henry Holbapfel, Jr., as its president, and was known as the New Mercer Literary Society. It ran along with varied success for two years until in i8()4, when there was a number of public entertainments of an especially successful character held under its auspices. In the fall of 1894 the New Mercer Society was superseded by what was known as the Maryland Agricultural College Congress, consisting of the Sen- ate and House of Representatives. The Senate consisted of the members of the Senior and Junior classes while the Sophomore and Freshmen constituted the Ihnise of Representatives. At the opening of school in the fall of i8()6 the Maryland Agricultural Col- lege Congress failed to convene and theXew Mercer Literary Society was reor- ganized by Wm. S. Weedon and others, and has continued to grow and flourish until the present time. The interest exhibited in literary work has been remarkable in view of the fact that its members hold impromptu meetings on the various corridors while some other member hunts up the janitiir in order that he may obtain admission to some class room. Although the literary societies have no home, and their reg- ular weekly meetings have been seriously interrupted by lectures during the winter mouths, a great deal of progress has been made and a very creditable amount of work has been accomplished by this society and its rival — The Morrill. The membership of the society has grown from its twenty-five charter members it its present enrollment of one hundred and one, the largest enroll- ment since its organization in 1888. In the debates, held a number of times during the year, between the two societies, the New Mercer and the Morrill, i ur representatives, always make an excellent showing and are very often the winners. For several years the principal orator, and once or twice, also, the alter- nates were fu ' rnished from the ranks of the New Mercer Literary Society 79 for the Inter Colleoiate Oratorical Contest. Last year, at the first fnter-colle- giate Debate Ijetween Delaware College and M. A. C. the president of the New Mercer Society. Mr. Cruikshank, was one of M. A. C. ' s debaters, and with admirable assistance rendered by Mr. Sturgis, president of the Morrill Society for this year, they were able to win the honors from their opponents. This year both (.)f M. A. C. ' s representatives were selected fnmi the New Mercer Society. The anionnt of work which can be accomplished by a literar - s()ciet ' in a small college is very great indeed. In its meetings students actpiire that free- dom of speech and grace of movement which can come only with continual ])ractice. The benefits derived 1)y an active member of a literary socict - far exceed those derived from the same amount of time sjient in almost an ' other direc- tion. Literary work will develop a young person from a crude lad into a young man with a strong, clear and quick thinking brain. Let us all in the year to come take hold (if our society nrk with a renewed energv and tr to develo]! it and make its p(.)wer felt not onh in our own schoul but in our state and nation. . . A. I ' .

Sliowell ' aldes Zerkel Shipley oeke Zimmerman Stott 83 The Morrill Literary Society XCIv the history of our Literary Societies has been given frdin year to year in this publication, it is only necessary here t(i sav a few words repinhng their organization and develop- ment. The first literary society if the Maryland Agricultural College was organized over fortx ' years ago liy Dr. N ' . M. Mercer, of New Orleans. This was called the Mercer Lit- erarv Society in honor of its founder, and continued to enjoy varying periods of success until 1889, when it was no more. I ' .ut it was seen that a literary society was a necessary adjunct to the college, and through the eft ' orts of Professor F. B. Bomberger and others tlie society was reorganized in 1892 with the name of the New Mercer Literarv Societ -, and has flourished since that time. In 1894 the Morrill Society was organized by T ' rofessor R. H. Alvey. who believed that a friendly spirit of rivalry would give a stimulus to the literar - work of the societies: and that he was correct in his lielief, has been shown by the most excellent work of the two societies in the past few years. The society took its name from Senator Morrill, who did so nnich for the advance- ment of the Agricultural Colleges throughout the country. The Morrill Literary Society has done good wcirk since its organization, and, though young, it has proved a worthy rival to the . ' ew Mercer, puttng up able men for every contest and never failing to lake an active jiart in an - movement which would stimulate and eidiance the efforts of tlie students along the lines of elocution and tlebate. A sketch of the literary societies would be incomjilete if they failed to men- tion Professor Richardson, our most efficient instructor in h ' locution, whose interest in ami enthusiasm for the work has been of untold benefit and pleas- ure to the mem1)ers. His devotion to the best interests of both .societies has been an ins])iratioii to the students at all times. The interest and untiring efforts of I ' rofcssor I ' .omberger have greatly en- couraged the literary societies ami helped the meml)ers to accomplish good re- sults. He is always ready and willing to leml his aid for any movement to- ward the advancement of the societies ' interest and well-lx ' ing. The annual debate with Delaware College has become a fixed part of the work of the two societies, having been held last year for the first time at Xewark. It was very gratifying to the memliers of both societies when the trophy of the debate was brought to ] L . . C. The .Morrill Society was rep- 84 resciUc-d liy Mr. ( ' .Icnwurth Stiirj;is and tlic Xcw Alrrccr 1) ' Mr. L. V. (. ' ruik- shaiik. The most adverse condition with which our society has to contend is the fact tliat it has no permanent liome — no room to call its own. It is not al- together inspiring to an orator to he making a speech in a class-room where he flunked tliat same day in mathematics ; and it is by no means pleasing or encouraging tn line u the members against the walls of the corridor while an improvised detective is sent in quest of a key to unlock the door of a ])rivate class-room. Let a room be priwided for our society — a room we can call our own — with sui:h equipments as are necessary for the accomodation of our members and the Morrill IJlerary Society will r ' ceive an im])etus in its work which will be most gratifying and encouraging to all. It is also impossible U have literary work on lM-ida - evenings when Fri- day evenings are given up to lectures and cntertaimuents. The lectures and en- tertainments are all right — most pleasing and desirable — but, of course, it is very obvimis that the literary work must sufifer as the result of the same. It might be advisable to have the literary society meetings once a month and at times when no other tliversion is on the programme. Let those that have the authority help us out in this matter. We hope and believe the environments of the societies will be improved and it is the fond desire of every member that the Morill Society may grow and flourish and continue to do the good work in the future which it has done in the past.

The Rossbourg Club TIKjL ' SAXD HIvVKTS l)L-at happily, and when Mnsic arose with its vohiptuous swell Soft eyes looked love to eyes which spoke attain, And all went merry as a wedding bell. The social side of man " s natnre must be developed and trained as well as his physicial and mental organs. The Ross- bourg Club has a two-fold function to perform. The dances given under the supervision of its officers fill the xduthful hearts with delight and break the monotony of long hours of hard study. The social side of his being hrconies broader and all the gallantry and gentility of his nature shines forth in his endeavor to please when in the company of fascinating women than which there can be no better educator. What could appeal to one ' s better na- ture more strongly than the beautifully adorned hall filled with the harmonious strains of music, to which charming girls glide over the smoothly polished floor, showing in every step the very poetry of motion ? Could anything be more ele- vating or refining than the gentle conversation of lovely woman ? When the young man, filled with an exuberance of youthful spirit, glides trippingly along with the maiden fair of whom he is especially fond, and who, in all the gentle- ness of her nature, with soft eyes looks a world of love and sweetness into his, he forgets the dull care and weariness of life and sees only the sublimit} ' , the beauty — feels only the bliss and joy of living. The President and Faculty, realizing the importance and helpfulness of the organization, encourage and foster it in every way, tending to its advancement. To them we extend our thanks for their hearty cooperation and support. May the Rossbourg Club never take one step backward, but steadily im- prove as it has in the last few years.

N the ancient days men of all sclmlarly vdcalicms were accnstDmed t(i wear the most snlier colors, to a|)|)ear s;illo v, roimil shonld- ered, an l tor one to atteni|it a deed at arms wonld he the .greatest suhject tor ridicnle. Thanks to some farsip hted and brilliant man it was foimd that the jjliysical man was just as capable of accjuir- in. - and imjjartinij knowledge as the degenerate being of former ages — hence the college athletics. Later, as civilization and Chris- tianity progress, arm in arm the spiritual man is becoming a necessity, and to ac- complish this is the task of our College Young Men ' s Christian Associations. The ' . Al. C. . . of our college is not as old as it might lie, but we are will- ing to vouch that its standing compares favorably with more experienced and older organizations. The constitution of the Alaryland Agricultural College Young Men ' s Chris- tian . ssociation was ado])ted Decemlier i(;oo. and Mr. Charles X. llo;:ic was elected as its president. It is to Mr. llnuic that the association owes si much, for in its infancy he was never weary of tendering his assistance, and through his earnest efforts was the foundation laid which has caused the association to grow from twenty-five charter members to one hund " ed and thirt ' . llis name will be honored down throtigh oiu " Y.M. C. A. jis one of the greatest of stu- dent workers. The ' . M. C. . . began tlie ear I()04-05 under the n-ost favorable circum- stances, v hortly after the opening of college a rece])tion wrs gi -en the new students l)y tlie old members of the . M. C. . . . carefully prejiared (iro- gramme was rendered, after which refreshments were served. The chief aim of the rece])tion was to make the new boys feel at home and acquainted with the old men, and it is believed that many friendships were nride that will be lasting. In the construction of our nei ' building, which was completed in 1903, the trustees jirovided a new room for the ' . M. C. A., and liy generous contributions enabled the societ ' to furnish the room with games and amuse- ments of various lescri])tions. In Februar -. ii)02, the r)ible Class, as r branch of the ' . .M. C. . ., was organized, The class is progressing rajiidly. having now thirt -three nv. ' mbers. It meets every W ' echtesday night uniler the clirection of Professor .Xortnn, the ' . M. C. . . advisory officer. The meetings of the class are informal and those present are at liberty to ask any i|uestions concerning the lesson or any ])art of the lUble. e. cei)ting those fpiestions in ' olving the belief of s:ime special denomination. 93 Our class sent delegates to the Interstate liible Study Institute, held in IJal- timore, January 13-15, 1905. This institute was for the colleges of Maryland and Delaware ; the schools of Baltimore were the hosts and there were over a hundred delegates present — representing St. John ' s College, Annapolis; Wash- ington College, Chestertown; Western Maryland College, Westminster: Dela- ware College, Newark; Jacob Tome Institute, Port Deposit; Charlotte Hall, Charlotte Hall, Md. ; Wilmington Conference Academy, Dover, and the Mary- land Agricultural College. Some of the most eloquent men of Maryland addressed the institute and every phase of Bible study was discussed so that many new and Ijeneficial ideas were presented to our class. Y. Al. C. A. sent two delegates to the Xorthiield Student Conference, held at East Northfield. Mass., from June 25th to jul - 6th, 1903. They were very much inpressed by the great work done there and 1) the manifestation of such a deep religious spirit. Their report was very beneficial to the association and the students realized more than ever before what an instrument for good is the Y. M. C. A. in our colleges and insti tutions to-day. The programme of the work of the Y. M. C. A. was published in the form of a topic card, containing the speaker for each Sunday and his text. The topic cards distributed among the students enabled them to know the speaker and have an opportunity to study the text to be discussed. In addition to the student leaders, men, who jfrom wide experience are especially fitted for the work, were asked to address the members. The public was cordially in- vited to attend these meetings. The Second Biennial Conference, Eastern Division, for Maryland. Dele- ware and District of Columbia was held at Annapolis. Md.. March 24-26, 1905. Our Y. M. C. . . sent the usual number of delegates, who were very much ben- efitted bv the conference. Our delegates had the honor to be present at the reception given by Governor Warfield, .March 25. Mr. George F. Tibbitts. inter-state .secretary for Maryland, West ' irginia, District of Columbia and Delaware, is now nn a trip abroad, visiting all the points of interest in Europe and the Holy Land. )ur Y. M. C. A. extend to him our sincere thanks for his efforts in unr behalf, and for the numerous de- lightful articles describing his trip abroad, which he sends from time to time. Xow. at the end of the fifth year, we find the association in a flousishing con- dition and we hope that its influence for good in the future may be even stronger than in the past, and that it will strive for the advancement of Christ ' s Kingdom among men. 94 Our Trip to St. Louis I ' R trip to St. Louis. Is this a fact, or is it a dream? Is the thought that went through the mind of every member of the I ' .attalion of Cadets of the Maryland Agricultural College on the morning of May 30, 1904, when they were preparing to rd the train for St. Louis. We had heard of nothing else for six months preceeding this, but how few of us really believed it. . nd were we not justified in our belief? Had we not been disappointed each year Ix ' fore? There are few of us who did not think that a few days, or even a day before we were to start that the president would an- nounce " It will be impossible for you to go, " but this was not the case. ( )n the morning of May 10, 1904. at 10:10 a. m. we boarded the train at Col- lege for St. Louis; all of us in high glee over our expected good time. As our train pulled out from the station we waved a last farewell to our friends who had gathered there to see us depart. The day passed as quietly as could lie expected from a crowd of 125 boys on a train en route for a L ' niversal Exposition. The train made but few stops that daw Init at each one " Stubby " jumped (jff to see some of his friends, and to come back with something to eat. This we did not seriously object to, as long as he shared up. The afternoon found us pulling over the mountains of Western Maryland, and after the boys, who by the way, were allowed to smoke, would stand on the rear platform and light their cigarette from the burning coal in the engine. But amid all this excitement we " unnaturally " got hungrv, and found ourselves eating sandwiches and drinking coffee w ' ith as much relish as we would have shared a banquet two days before. .Xightfall ct)mes and one by one we tumbled olT to dreamland where most of us remained until " Were }ou ever in Cincinnati? " echoed from ear to ear and from car to car. Well we knew that we had reached Cincinnatti and that sleeji was out of the question until we should leave, which we learned would be in about forty minutes. The boys all piled off the train to see what the place looked like, and some of them to wash the coal dust down their throats. On comparing our watches with the clock in the station, in Cincinnatti. we found that somewhere in the mountains of West Mrginia we had run over an hour while we were asleep, and while our watches registered 3 o ' clock the clock said 2. After leaving here everything went on cpiietly until morning, when we found ourselves ploughing through the plains of Indiana. It was here that the bovs began to realize that a little water might improve their personal appear- 95 ancc. so ])n)i.-cf(le(l to wash their faces, hut they soon found tliat this cold water, without elbow room to ruh sufficiently, tended to streak rather than cleanse them, so most of us decided to wait until we reached . " t. l,ouis and take a warm ( ?) shower. Sandwiches and still sandwiches. " Don ' t wnrry " the hoys wi id l sa " we ' ll soon Ije at nur journe ' s end and eatin. - oi xl liimh. " " Where iLjimrance is bliss ' tis foll - to lie wise. " But, " the same old thing- in the same old way " gets monotonous. . nd at each stop the boys would ] our off the train and " Rah! rah! rah! rah! rah! rah! rah! rah! — pretty girls " could be heard pi uring from the lips of the crowd. " To tell a ' fib ' is sometimes pardonable, " and to sa ' " jiretl) .girls " imder such circumstances might not have been recorded in the " big book. " The commandant l)egan to fear, lest sjme of the buys shciuld get left, so issued orders to the ( ). I). n: t to allow any bidy to leave the train unless it made a prolonged stop. I wonder hdw many ( ). D.s and " cimnnys " it would have taken to stoj) that Inmch from getting off — e -en if onl - for a minute ? . t 2:40 o ' clock p. m. we got off ' the train at the main enterance to the Fair grounds, and while waiting in the bri)iling sun for the baggage to be loaded on the wagon " Ker ly " suggested we take a lonk at the snow-cai)i:ed ])eaks, the Tyrolean .Vljis and get cool — oh- what a bright boy is " Ferdy! " We marched rp through the Fair grounds to the Administration building and halted, while the " Commy " went to .see where our barracks was located, hut u]ion investigation he found that we were to go into cami) instead of bar- racks. We alwavs nake the best out of life ( ?) so were willing to go into camp, barracks, or out-of-doors fur the sake of getting a place to rest, . fter relieving ourselves of nur guns and ei|uii)ments we started for the " .Military mess hall " ( accent on the mess ). ( )n our way to dinner we received cheers from all the other colleges in camp, which were returned when we marched liack from our meal. The afternonn was devoted to fixing rp cam|i, and aliout five o ' clock we started out to see what a I ' niversal lv ]iosilii)n might be at any rate, " v eeing is helieviug " is an nld ma.xim which is not true, and ime needs only one hour at such an exposition to prove it. for here it is impossible to believe what you see, and vou would be very much fooled if you .should believe half of it. .Xaturallv we devoted our attention to the " I ' ike, " which was the most important phase of th.e exp.-.sition to us. The evening was s])en.t on the I ' ike. We would walk up to the gate of a show, give a few cheers and walk in as if we owned the ])lace. ( )f course we would rather jiay, bit to kee|i peace in the fannh i ' would go in without ])ayiug lo acconnnodate the manager ( :n. 96 About eleven i ' cli)ck tlie Ijoys camt back, tired, hot, sleepy, and ready for bed. Not thinkinj - that a blanket was necessary, we folded ours up and used them as pillows. As night advanced we realized that a pillow was not so neces- sary as a blanket, so converted the former into the latter. The blankets were snon douliled. but with not nnicli better results. The desired effect (to keep warm) seemed hard to obtain. " What fools these mortals be, " or l etter said, " What fools we mortals were. " Why didn ' t we know that the cold was coming up ihriiugh the canvas cot instead of down through the woolen blanket? The next miirning when " Reveille " was sounded " Rat " stuck his head out between the tent flaps and offered to make a bet. but upon learning what his proposi- tion was. nobody was willing to take him up. Everybody believing, for once, that what he said was true. The ne.xt day we undertook to see the whole thing — only 1,31)0 acres liter- ally covered with building.s — a small undertaking for a day. We saw what we could of it in the day, and, of course, went to the Pike at night. lUit when we returned that night each oiie was sure to wrap him- self up well in his blanket, in ortler that he luight be proof against cold, either from above or below. Everything went un quietly and about as usual mUil Friday, when we were going to have a parade of all the corps in camp — down the side of the lagoon, up the Plaza of St. Louis, and back hoiue again. About one o ' clock it began to rain, and came down pretty steadily for about an hour, when the sun caiue out. A messenger appeared, telling " Comniy " that the parade would begin at 2 :30 sharp, and then " We want more rain. We want more rain, " came from all quarters of camp. For once the wishes of everybody in camp were gratified, when it began to rain as if somebody were pouring it froiu buckets. Those among us who had seen the " Galveston Flood " so vividly reproduced on the Pike, realized that if it rained in Galveston as it did in St. Louis, it would not take " forty days and forty nights " to destroy a cit - by floods. Soon each boy found himself clinging to the ridgepole of his tent watching the water, a foot or less deep, rush over the floor of his tent and expecting each minute to see his cot go with the water. All things have an end, and after ever ' bod - had about as much water as he wanted a Divine Providence stopped it. It is true that we had no parade that afternoon, but the fact remains that nobody who was in camp that day ever yelled " We want more rain " again, and if he had done so he would have had to seek a new place of abode. The next day, Saturday, the Pike was dedicated, and of course we had to take it all in. and each boy picked up a fair damsel ( not a hard thing to do in St. Louis) to take her on the " Great Scenic Railway. " for if there was ever a 99 ])lacc ' where vdu had to sit close and hold tii ht, it is the Scenic Railway. Even the I ' resident and Steward enjoyed this trip while their wives were many miles away. Simdaw " nothint;- doin " ' was the thon hl thai prompted the boys to remain on the Pike nntil ahont 2 a. m. If you think that there is nothini - doini;- in St. Louis on Sunda ' , evidently you have never been there. For where is the nuU-fig-ht. Delmar Gardens, and last but not least, IMontesono? Well, we lidn ' t have any bull-fight. Delmar is about a half hour ' s ride on the car, and .Mon- tesono about ten miles down the Misissip])i River, h ' nouo-h to sa} ' about these jilaces is, if you have never been there, don ' t ,Il;h ; and 1 know if you have been there once you won ' t 1, 0 as ain. Monday finds " Stella " at her same stand on the Plaza of St. Louis. Is there any wonder that one of our First Sergeants would rather drill there than on the Administration Quadrangle? The Pike is still there, and we had a little monev left, so otY we go wdien supper is over, with about i,ooo other boys right there with the goods. If we did the Pike, they made it up on somebody else. The ' didn ' t lose, you can bet on that. There is always something new, and to-)norrow the Mtiryland llnildhig will be dedicated. It was there that Alex Streett mistakes " Cab " for " Stei)])y " and tells him a secret. " Stubby " gives three cheers for Mrs. Fisher and the bt)ys sang " Maryland, My Maryland " to the tune of " Dixie. " I might as well state that they had good Maryland water in this building. The next day — Wed- nesday — we leave for home at 8:30 a. ni. " Well, we might just as well go back to the Pike, " the bo s saiil, and they could appreciate a good show. Ordinarily water cost 6 cents a glass, so we didn ' t use much, but now they had no dust in their throats. The next morning we went to breakfast at 7 130 a. m., after hav- ing gotten up at 4:30 and packed our belongings. At 8:00 we found ourselves retracing out steps toward the main entrance to the fair grounds. At 8:30 we boarded our train at the Wabash terminal, all as happy as when we boarded it at College ten da}s before, becarse we were completely worn out and eager to be out of the excitement. Just contrast us now to when we came out all willing and anxious to re- main quietly in our seats and take life — I mean sandwiches — as it came, and not jump oft ' at every station and yell at the girls. .Xot because we had seen so many " pretty " girls were we willing to glance casually at them through the windows, but liecause we had learned from experience that pretl - girls don ' t grow in that part of the country. The Maryland girl for lue I The next day at 2 |i. m. we stepped oft ' our train at College, a rougher, tougher, blacker bunch of l)ovs, ever to have been white, I venture to say has never licen seen in this part of tlie cimnlry liefcire. ( )nr faces and clothes alx nit the color of the enyine which had pulled us. When a little later we entered the college dining-room — thanks to the ' ice-President, who was acting in the ca]iacity of Steward — we found a dinner that would have tempted the appetite of the most fastidious, hut I might add that ours needed no tempting. Too much thanks cannot he given Capt. Silvester and Colonel Fuller for the thoughtful consideration given us as a hunch of college l)o ' s off for a good time. Within reasonable limits we were permitted to do as we wished ; and I speak the sentiment of the strdent body when I say that their every action impressed fully upon us that our welfare and ]jleasure was their aim throughout the entire trip. Looking back upon the time spent away from college on this tri]), each boy will sa - that he had a most enjoyable trip, and when the time came for our return each one found himself ready to come. After all, in the words of the poet. " He it ever so Immble, there is im place like home. " J. N. iM.— 05. Members of Our Orchestra LEADER AX I) .MANAGER, First Sergeant G. M. .Mayer.

W.— 05. lo, College Athletics |X modern college life, college athletics have come to be a factor of no inconsiderable importance. The direction of this factor, to the end that it may properly perform its function in the collegaite autonomy, is a problem, the proper solution of which dt ' ]:ends upon the wisdom of the Board of Directors, Faculties and student bodies. L ' nless this correct conclusion can be ol)tained ; unless a strong tendency at to moderation in the estimate of the value of athletics as a factor in college life can be attained, then it were better that the athletic spirit did not exist at all. It is the dut - of the I ' oards of Directors and Faculties to cultivate an esprit among the students in their contests, which will not tolerate vnfair advantage or any form of deception. The slogan of their contests should be a fair field and fair play in ever - contest. No success won on any other basis is worth the effort. X ' ictory, with the con- sciousness that it is ill gotten, is more demoralizing than defeat, with the realiza- tion that conduct confomiing to tlie canons of fair play markeil the action of every individual player. College authorities view with alarm at times the spirit in athletics which condones an unfair play, or undue advantage. To them it argues a condition, in the undergraduate department, which can only be inter- ]ireted to mean that the uK ral tone is below the standard which should obtain in any institution of a collegiate character. Without a high moral standard in student contests, all other advantages to be gained by the development of college athletics are of minor importance. ISetter no athletics than a low standard of morals which emphasizes itself in acts of brutal force, and imdue advantage based u])on deception. If our young ' nien. in their friendly contests for supremacy in the athletic field, can show a chivalrous spirit which is intolerant of fraud in any of its many forms, then we will have a basis for athletic culture in which every virtue of physical levelopnient can be ]ilanted, with the assurance of a bountiful fruitage of good results. . mong these may be mentioned a ])hysical being well knit together with tendon and muscle: expansive lungs well filled with rich oxygenated air: a stout heart ca])able of pumping rich and arterial blood to remote territories of the body. and bringing back from these the slag-laden and waste-charged fluid for renova- tion and recirculation — each and all ready to respond to the behest of a will, self poised and supreme, in directing the action of every organ. . training to over- come difficulties in manly contests, in which possession the prolilems of life lose their terror, and a consciousness of individual resource becomes our jiossession, from which reserve strength is develo])cd. Tt trains our oung men to realize 1 06 tliat readiness in embracing an opportrnity at a moment ' s notice. niai es the (lifFerence between success and failure in many a contest. It trains mc)i U) hold their appetites in hand; it teaches self-denial; it urges the importance of self- control. It gives frequent evidence of the weakness of a man under the influence of angered spirit, and lastly, it gives a training in dealing with our fellow-man u])on the broad basis tliat bis rights are as sacred to him as arc ours to us. L ' pon this realization is based the Golden Rule, that " we should do unto others as we would have them do unto us. " Imbued with the spirit here outlined, the Facul- ties and student bodies of the colleges of Maryland have formed an . thletic Leagre, whose manner of life as expressed in its constitution, is to be character- ized by a training which will win victories or suffer defeat in honorable contests, based upon the skill of their individual players and the spirit of fair play. If the spirit of this constitution is carried init. our college athletics will be backed and encouraged by Boards of Directors. Faculties and a refined public opinion, which will give them a position in college life never heretofore attained. May your efforts as a student body be helpful in bringing about this consum- mation. 107 Foot Ball Team 1905 A. A. Parker, Manager. J. ' . Gill, Captain. D. J. Marker, Coach. W. E. LeGore Center. E.

Athletics feels that, in a certain sense, it owes ini a state- ment of the advantages and disadvantages to be derived from inir sons entering into football work. We would like, how- ever, to state that we do not wish to put ourselves in the place of advisors in this matter, but simply to put you in possession of the facts from which you may reach definite conclusions. In the first ]ilace. we do not believe that any boy. who is not physically sound, should undertake football athletics. ' oiu- family physician can tell you just whether or not vour boys are p.hysically sound. Taking for granted that they are all right in this res]:ect. 1 will endeavor to lay before you. lirst. the disad- vantages; and then the ad.vantages of the s]iort, so far as 1 have seen them here at the College. First, as to the disadvantages: It is a recognized fact that the . merican }outh is inclined to excess in almost everything he undertakes. Vour sons will l)robabl - be inclined to overdo their s])ort. This, however, may be overcome; and. in fact, will he overcome liy a C( m; etent coach and a competent ca])tain of their team. The applicant will be allowed to take only srch an amount of e.xercise and vigorovs outdoor work as will be both necessary to his becoming a gcod football player, and will be most conducive to ])hysical good health to himself. . n(l again, there is a chance of (jbysical injury. (Utside of the kind referred to aliove; and this is a disadvantage that cannot be so easily o ercome by proper training and knowledge of the game. iXevertheless. it may be greatly Icssciwii by a proper government of the mode and style of playing the game. 1 mean by that statement, that football is recognized as a game in which a man may play the part of a brute, but in which he is nut alloi ' cd to do so. Therefore, with gen- tlemanlv opponents, and himself ]iro];erly trained in the defense and attack, just as one is trained in fencing, the amount of risk of injury is not so great as. at first sight, it appears, . nother fad in this same connection, which is of the greatest advantage to the player in football, is that the game has lieen reduced to a practical working science, and is governed liy certain tricks and sleights, a knowledge of which enables the player to look oiU for his own person and the defense of his team, as well as to break down the defense of his opijonents. These things not i nl ' result in tin- jilayi-r ' s a cii(1in« ' sonic danger to himself, hut make of him a more aggressive, and. consequently, a more efficient toothall player. .Another great argument that is hrought to hear against foothall. is that it takes too much of the valuable time, of one engaged in it. from the jiroper performance of his scholastic duties; tlierehy hurting his record in thai for which he was sent to college. This we admit ; hut with certain and most iiiiporhiiil limitations. In the first place. I may saythat I believe this to be the case at large universities: where one. to l;e able to gain admittance to the team, must give almost his undivided attention to football work, and where he is required to spend at least a fifth part of his da on the gridiron or in the football lecture room, ilut at a college of the class of the .Maryland .-Vgriculture College: 1 should sav, at . I. A. C. : the aforesaid is not the case. The football ] la}er here is expected to give two. of his i;ossible three, hours of recreation, si)ecially set apart for exercise and outdoor enjoyment, to football, lie is not expected to ])ut more time than that upon this deixirtment of athletics, nor is he permitted to do so, even though he wishes it. 1 believe that I nia - safely say that so far from taking an tin-.e from his studies, the work which he does upon the football field, even aids him in mastcriiii: them. This will be clear when we consider the undisputed fact that the brain is i|iMckened ami ni;ide more vigorous by exercise and outdoor air. which ])urifies the blood and sends a stronger flow of this healthy fluid to the l)rain. without which that organ is sluggish and clouded, and, conse- i|Uently. cannot properly ];erform its fimctions. It is likelw also, that such small c ne or two da ' holidays as your sons may be alile to scctu ' e will 1 e given to their team, and you will, tlu-refore. see less of them than on would were they not athletes. When you do see them. Dear Mothers. I fear also that you will find their interests so absorbed in f ioiball as to make you feel jea ' .ors of the attention they devote to it. This. I believe, com- pletes the list of cl isadvantages. . s to the advantages: Their careers in the college will be far |il(.asanter for them, if the should he successful in football: tlu ' ir ac(|uaintance with the fellows Ijc wider and more agreealile : and, provided tlie come through without serious injurv. the will be the stronger and mnvv robust physicallx on ;icconnt ol the develo])ment. ' ou ma fairh a ' -k me for my reasons foi- the Last conclusion. In this con- nection let me sa th:it 1 ;:ni cpiite stu ' e that nothing in the wa of set physical effort, like pulling weights, walking, or an lhing of that kind, posst ' sses I ' mmgh interest ( nnk-ss ]ierfornu-d in connection with and for the |)m-] ose of accomiilish- ing some other residt ) to lead boys to take the .amount of exercisi- necessary. The animals, in his necessit for bodih exercise as a condition ol health, h:;S nnt altered iiiatcriall ' in the small period of time covered by what e call civiliza- tion. The centuries of strut g-le to secure the means of existence, exposure to the elements, and the pressure of conditions for physical life and activitv, have tended toward the ]; reservation of health and tlie de -elopment of the race to its present condition. I ' hysiologists will tell yi_)u that there has been no ver - essen- tial chanj e in the organism of man during- this period, llence it is fair to sa that there are certain definite requirements for a healthy life — nameh- : fresh air, sunlight. proi er food, and hodil - exercise. The necessity of this latter, towards re]ilacing the old with the new in the animal economy, is of the greatest impor- tance. . nd, all these necessary conditions are provided hv football. So much for the physical side of it. As to the mental and moral, 1 am franl. to sa — and in tliis the majority, I tliink. of those who have watched Ijoys in their develo]:ment are inclined to agree — there is no finer discipline at the colle. e age than that of the football field. The character building there is certainlv remark- able. The fact, 1 think, is generally admitted that many bo s, who come to college without the benefits of a large school, an l ])erha])s too much protected b - the wealth or social position of their ])arents from contact with things as the - rcall are, might manage to get through college, if they kept out of football, with- out learning much abort democracy: but no one of them wou ' .d miss it, if he were cast upon a football field. There strict obedience, respect, m()dcst ' , patience, and ]:ersistence is tai " ght. .Man_ ' a man has worked there for two, (jr even three, years for the sake of securing the coveted place on a " varsity team. And no mat- ter how exaggerated one may consider the value these boys place upon that honor, the results are the same, and the work of the several years has been done, and the various ])oints of discipline ha -e been learned. During the time also that any boy is in training, he must and will curb his desires; his living will be wholesome and cleanly: the hours he keeps will be early and regular; and. in fact, his life will be far more carefldly ordered for him than would be ])ossible either by you or by tile b ' aculty. There is yet oix ' other, and very inii)ortant. consideration in the ad ant:iges to be derived from football. Yorr sons. Dear Mothers, will be bajipy in. and pleased with, their football work. They will enjoy every hour spent in practice, and every second spent in a contest. They will learn to love their tasks upon the gridiron, ami they will take a deep and ] roper i)riile in their own prowess and |iower. 1 ' lie - will learn to place confidence in themsehes. and a]:preci:ite right- full) ' their own abilities. Such. Dear Mothers, are the advantages of football, as 1 have seen them here at the Maryland Agricultural College. I have endeavored, in this o]ien letter, to ])ut you in possession of the facts pre and con: and will lea -e (iu to draw our own conclusions. lurs in the hope that your sons will be with us on the gridiron next season.

The wonder is not that we have ever lost in ci mipetition with other colleges, but that we have ever won — and wh ? liecanse we have no track on which to train. The only available running course is the cinder path leading from the college to the Ex- periment Station : and this path contains cinders of all sizes from molecules to masses. It is csiiecially adai)ted to s])raining ankles and skinning knees. ( )f Course, we have a qrarter mile track, presumably for the use of runners, but the greater part of the year this is under water, presenting a magnificent circular canal. All this adds to the scenic effect of the landscape, but has no particular advantage as a running track. This track is ready for use about the of June, affording opportunity for two weeks of practice during the nine months of the college term. W ' e Impe later in to have a more suitable course, in fact, are glad to sa} that we will have, ne.xt ear, an indoor track, and we may expect better work from the team. We are sorry that this year we will lose from the team Captain Cocke and Captain Krentzlin. who during tlieir term at college have done good work and have always shown an untiring interest in track and field work. These men graduate from the college this year and will consequently not lie with us next year. Professor Richardson takes great interest in the track team, and does all that the conditions will permit to develop successful runners. 119 Basket Ball ASKl T r.ALU C( institutes a new phase nf our e(illei, ' e sports, this l)ein! - its first year at the college. 1 Uu-ing the winter months, with simply a foolhall game niiw and then, life became very monotonous, until some ingen- idus mind conceived the idea of basket ball. As the gfvmna- siiim had been moved to the new building, leaving the old gym. hall vacant, this suggestion was at once acted upon, and we liegan the ])ractice of this most exciting game. The boys took to the sport well, and it was soon noticed that each company of the battalion was represented by (|uite a number of good players. This led to the idea of playing a series of cham- pionship games between the three companies. The teams were at once picked and they practiced diligently for about two weeks till the match games began. It was so scheduled that each team should play each of the others a series of three games,, making a total of six games for each team. The winner was to receive a silk banner as a trophy. To say that excitement ran higli would be stating the case mildly indeed. There was great rivalry off and on the teams, and the players played excellent ball considering the newness of. the sport. The series of games lasted through several weeks, and each company had a good chance to win. Rut Co. C, although outweighed by both of her opponents, gradually forged to the front and won out brilliantly. The line-up of the three teams was as follows: Position Company " A " Company " B " Company " C " R. F Cocke • Thomas, Capt .... Cape.staney L. F Caul, Capt Stabler Roberts Center Whiting Hayman Krentzlin, Capt . . R. G Hohiiead Waters Maver, Alli.son . . . L. G Todd Gait Firor, G .Kfter this most interesting series was over, an all-college team was organized from the teams of the three companies. It got into good sha])e. but baseball and track work came into season and the interest in basketball was transferred to these s])orts and the basket ball was laid away until next winter. The college team line-u]) was as follows : R. F Thomas, Capt. L. F Capestaney, Roberts. Center Krentzlin. R. G Holmeade. L. G ..::., Caul. This team made a very good showing against Washington " S ' . AI. C. A., and also against Carroll Institute even though they were defeated in both instances. Their defeat can be contributed to lack of experience and not lack of nerve. It was most encouraging to see the men take so much interest in this new sport and to see them show up so well in the very first ear of its existence, for we all know that it requires long and constant practice to become a good player. So encouraging is it that we feel safe in making the statement that next ' eai there will exist a team at this college that will coni]jare favorable with any dlhcr team of its class in the State of Maryland. Thoughts Concerning Oratory l.L spuakiiiy is not oratory; most even of what men call fine sfcaki)!!:; has httle that is akin to it. The form of expression may he in keeping with all the rules of rhetoric; the How of words may be the smoothest; the voice may be strong and pleasing, and the thoughts expressed ma_ ' be of the highest order — and yet it may not be oratory. ( )ratory is an art — and the master of it is an orator. A man but indifferently eipiipped in the art of painting may be considered a painter ; but the indifferent orator is generally no orator at all. ( )nly a master in the art of oratory can be considered an orator. Real oratory is the child of truth and ardour. It therefore follows that the orator must be an honest man, and his theme an honest issue. . nd yet oratory is not spontaneous. Webster scoffs at the idea of inspira- tion — divine inspiration, as some are pleased to term it — and he says there is no such thing. Webster asserts that his speech in reply to Hayne was written several months before its delivery and carefully committed to memory, lie was simply waiting for an opportunity — an occasion significant enough to call it forth. It is more than probable that ever}- wfird and every line of Patrick Henry ' s immortal speech had passed through his mind a hundred times before its actual delivery. In fact, he began to prepare that speech when a mere lad, addressing the horses and the cows and the forest trees ; and when his impassioned elocpience broke forth in an apparently spontaneous and extempore effort, that eloquence was really the ])roduct of years of thought and jireparation. We must, therefore, ci include that two things are essential to oratory — great preparation and great o])portunitv ; and no wonderful oratory has ever existed in the absence of either of these two requisites. But what matter to us if the great orator burned his midnight oil in the preparation of his speeches? What care we where or how that mighty eloipience was conceived? We are concerned onlv in its birtli — that glorious, unheralded Ijirth which Ijrings a mighty pow-er into the world. lUit we are sometimes a.sked, " Has not the day of oratory gone forever? " To this we would reply by asking if the da - of ; rcat cx ' ents has gone forever. Should another Philip threaten the li1)ert ' of another Greece — should another ' erres prostituc the government of an ither Rome — should another liritain jilace the tyrant ' s heel u]ion another Anu ' rica. the orator will arise as great and glorious and ]iiiwerf il ;is tlniM, ' who have gone before. T24 Uel histciry ri_ ' |ieat the r(il)l)iTics of W ' arri-n [ lastinq s. and there will he ])reseiit a lUirke; let tluTe he another lo vntr(i l(leen Hungary, and a Kossuth will eome forth. It is when the interests of a nation are at stake that immortal eloquence is horn — when a gallant but oppressed people are lashed to madness by accumulated wrongs — when the fate of themselves, their wives and their children hang upon the decision of the hour — or when the question is one of " liberty or death " — it is then that the Ithumal sjjear of eloquence touches the orator, and transforms him inlo a (lemi-god. History writes his name upon the pinnacle of Fame ' s temple and embalms it for immortality. And yet these great orators are not ultra-superior beings, siJecially ordained by Heaven for the rolls of fame. Some would have us think that the orator is buni, not made, and that all the muses sang and danced at his birth; and that the impress of supernatural genius was gratuitously placed upon him by the hand of his Creator. What could be farther from truth ? All the evidences of history are opposed to such a thought. Demosthenes was tongue-tied and awkward — his first elTorts were failures ; but years of rntiring application ; the intellectual mastering of his subjects, and the constant rehearsal of his idea in gesture and speech ; the laborious preparation for a great ojiportimity ; and then the oi)]iortunit)- — and Demosthenes was an orator. Cicero speaks for ancient and Webster for modern times when they both af- firm that oratory can be acquired bv hard work and continuous practice. After one of Wm. Pitts ' great speeches an admirer said to him, " That was a spontaneous outburst of eloquence. " " Xo, " said Pitt, " my father taught me to s;iy that speech when I was a child. The L ' nited States owes much of its greatness and glory to the orators it has produced. It is true that within the period of our national existence we have givm birth to more orators than any other nation in the same length of time. it becomes then the duty of the American people to protect and encourage the art of orator}-, and it will in turn i)rotect us. The work must Ije done in the institutions of learning, and should be a necessary part of the curriculum in every public school, college and universitv in our land. We know not what the future has in store for us as a nation. We know not what crises may have to be met. We know not how soon we niav need the eloquence of a Henry, a Webster, a Calhoun, or a Cla}-. Then let us make it possible, at least, for the American yorth of to-da}- to become an orator when the great possible opportunity shall arise. Cir. s. S. RicHARnsoN.

My Dear Jemes : i ' M WRITING to say that I want you, without fail, to send iii:r Sam to the old " M. A. C. " Colledge this coniin ' Fall — I ' ll tell i)u wh -. Its one impruved place, is that old " M. A. C. " Colledtje. ' ou jest would not know it. I an ' Marthy stepped ovur to Washinton to buy a carpet fur the spare room, en while she was a vibratin between Kans and Hecks. I jest left the whole thing to her. amiabul like, and took a run out to the old Colledge. Will tr to tell -ou somethin ' of the impruvements I saw. an " then if you kin crmniand the money and then cummand v am. I know you ' ll send him. When they calls out " Colledge Avenu. " 1 stejjs off brisk like an ' come up the hill. I jes had in mind the old huildin ' we lioth remembers, holdin ' its head up high anidug them oaks. Well. Jenies. that buildin ' now is just bearly a tale end (if an arrav of beautiful buildin ' s — There ' s a great big " Science Hall " where they shows vou as nice a collecshun of bugs, snakes, grashoppers an creepin things, es ever sunned themselves in an August sun. I seed more cabbage wurnis than ever seed before; but it is well enouf to know what iiiio;ht git after your crops. Perfessor Simuns was as glad to see me as th.) he ' d ev known me all my life, en told me about more awful scales and things that might fasten themselves onto my crops, til I was jest ready to go home, sit down and thank the Lord if I relized anvthing fur m - crops. When I left tliat Science Hall. I was willin to take 23 cents a Inishel fur my peach crop, not knowin when the " -allers " ( " ' ello Kil- uoff " ) might turn on me; would have sold evry i;ear tree I had. seein as how the blight ( " I ' .lighta Eteup " ) might attak my place. Don ' t think I ' m putin on airs with m ' botanicul names — Perfessor Gan give me these scientific turms before I left. Well, that aint all — we seed wheels dyin roun in another tremendus buildin. an when we got there we found the - wuz prepared to make anything from a wooden glass to drink oiU uv. down to shoein horses. That Mechanicid I ' uildin strrck me as the real thing. Whats more, rhey got a gimnasiem at ol l " M. . . C. " " ou recals they never laid much stress on that in the old days, an to tell the truth I don ' t jest know what they got now. but there was pertenances on the walls fur slrengthinen the arms and chisl. but mostly it seemed to be fur 132 r.askct llall. a nice ruff sort of a game, wliere aj fur as 1 could uiakc out the pint seemed to be to throw a ball up in the air an see who could hit his head aganst another boys head the hardest before that ball went thro a basket with no bottum to it. It might l;e " fastinatin. " which wrs the word a lady used who wus lookin on, but it struck me I ' d give my ]dace to another feller an not git mad over the excharg. The Perfesser in charge of this Gimnaseum was mighty agreeabul, and come to think of it, most of the perfessers I saw seemed harmless, an I don ' t think they bother the boys a great sight. There was some boys lookin on an not playin and they told me about the other physicul exercisin games. Mr. Summer- vil explained that they had mighty fine Base Hall and Foot Ball teams in ' 04-03, an as fur as I could make 01 1 from what he said, the only games they lost the whole seasrn through, was when the I ' mpirer made an imjust decishun. There wus a right misclicevus lookin bow with red cheeks standin by. They cauled him " Holler " I think, and explained that on account of his name, he wus the Chief Rooter of the Bas Ball Teem. I asked him how he managed his Rootin Team so all fired well, an he says : " Gosh, thats as easy as gittin money frum home. " This maid me feer he had no tender feelins, en so I past on. Ovur this gimnaseum is a right sizabul Libary — boys settin roun readin as nice as you pleese, with whole shelves full of Histries, Travuls an Sermons not molested, an a hamd- sum feller from the Eastern Sho ' named Dixin splained that we could have en}- of them to read, as them books was rarely missin from the shelves or called for, but we (lid ' nt have time fur no readin that day, an went on to a buildin next to the Libary, wlier a real clipper yoiui man, with glases on was standin on the porch, and I says to him " What ' s this buildin? " an he says " This? This is the Chemicul Lab, " and so I jes says, " Oh yes, of course. " not a lettin on I did ' nt know what a " Lab " wus. but I wern ' t goin to be fooled out of knowin what that buildin stood fur. so I says " To wIkmu is this a Memoreal? " and he laughfs and sa}s " It is a monniment erected to ]n ' reness in fertilizars and food stufs. " an then I begun to see it ralely has a misshun, and when he asked me in, I steps inside. I jest come out of that buildin knowin they had it down to dots. They told me while in ther that they oftun analized watur. bein as how they was opposed to more ' n a certain number of animals bavin a halnitat in their drinkin water, an then they condems it. The next thing t i atract our attenshun was a big, roun barn, as pretty as a jiictur. but I never got inside uv it, not bavin the tim, but it would lay all around anv liarn you ' ve got. Nice little one story house I see on my way back from the barn, and they tell me thats the Hospitul. Xow, you know I never in my life took no shine to hospituls, but if I wus stricken down by the hand of Providence or Hav Fever, I would as leve that Doctor 1 saw ther and that nice lookin ladv fur 133 nurse had chari c of my miseries as eii}iine T ever seed. In our iluv. nu reeals, when _ ou was siek, you just iiad to make your own hvin. Then we past what the called " The Shant_ " where handsum youn.i - assistents resides, until the - .t its marridge in their heads. They to ' d nie when a man liviu in the Shanty runs to katch the car to town six ex ' enins in the we.ik. an sits kind of morose-like the other evenin. there ain ' t much hope fur him. and the other liachalors hegins applyin for his room, fur marridge is shure to hefal him ar.d those who are left never know wher the hlow will fall next. I have left the best for the last, fur about this time we come uiion the New .Administrashnu lUiildin. jnned to the ( )ld lluildiu on the Simese-Twins stile of architekshur. It had a l.egislativ start an a (Jueen Anne finish, that is, when it was finished, because they told me them builders was so attached to that new bi i:din, they hated to strik the last blow, an would build the porch one day and tear it down the next day an Iniikl it up again. We wus luckv enouf to have son-e of it showed to us b_ - Captin SelvestiT. lie certainly is a fine lookin gen- tleman an has mighty corjel manners. In course of conversashun he explained to us that if the Trustees could gain their consent, they would make the Colledge a place fur educatin the girls ss well as the lioys : said they was enxshus to have them all taught sech bnrnin (piestious as " Ilow to make the fire burn, when the Cook don ' t come, " en elso " The strong pints in butter makin. " lie seemed to set gret store by this skeem. Perfessor Bludgeon jined us just then an entured into the conversashun, and he seemed pleased with the idee too — I think he called it " Coweducashun. " We cinii to the new Audditoreum, an there set a new pianer, which called to my mind that old pianer which wernt so bad if _ ou could muster three people, one to hold the keys down, one to hold the pedal up an one to hold the audience in. They told me the new one had mighty sweet mrsick in it. There was a Society man in the Hall, named Cockie, who seemed to be runnin things, an when he was a tellin me about the Dances im w-a-days, I could not hel]) thinkin aliout our ( ' ancin days in the old Chapel, when it was so crouded, you jest had to go out under the )ak trees to recollect wdio your next partner was. Air. Cockie did tell me that they had moon-light dances iiisitlc now-a-da s. 1 ut I ihot he was tryin to fool nie, so I jest says " Certinly " an past on. Besides this Rossberg Club, they has Dehatin Clubs, and cum to think of it. thats a mighty good trainin for a man. esspeshully, if in after life he ex])eeis to git married. To learn to haw the last wurd anil not gi ' e in to no one e ' ses opinions. There is many good things ierned at that Colledge. . g(.)lden haired !ioy named Mr. Mndd, was a tellin me about another Chib they have ealleil the " Colk ' dge Crove Club, " This seenis to be the bigges Club.

Autcjuiatick was the wurtl, for I distinctly remember it was not Systematick, no one seemed to think it was that — jest automatick. They lias thinojs down to a sistem in most res])ecs, for the ' told me that military rule anvl order was reduced to such a sistem there, thai this winter.

An to set his mind at rest Perfessor went around to evry boys door in that whole buildin an asked them if they was burned up, or skered, er anything like that an they answered to a man, " Xo Sir. We ' re aslee]). " Its a system I tell -ou ! While ther I eertinly met a nice lot of Perfessors, an you might serch far before you ' d find another lot who could tell you so quick that (iu knowed nothin, ab.solutely, an your condition was not likely to impruve as Time past on. Hut whats more im])ortint, they are an Enthusaslic Fackulty.

( )ne boy named " Wilher?

When l ' .eaut ' alone was reigning And music ' s sweetest strain Floated full upon the night air ( )f (lur noble Southern main. When the Southland ' s very noblest, No longer nobly brave, Bowed low before some ruler, Confessed himself a slave. Wdien men who had laughed at lUmker Hill. When bullets came their way, Turned from a woman ' s angry glance With never a word to say. When the old halls rang no longer With words of angry strife. When law and legislation Ciave way to love and life. But enough of the when and wherefore. Enough, for the wine is cold ; So now for the toast that was given In the gallant days of old. Come, gather round with your glass of wine And I ' ll give you a toast that none will decline, " 1 lere ' s to the maids of the South — my toast is not new ; But we can ' t overpay where such homage is due. Let each find in his glass, as these bright bubbles rise. The smile of his loved one, the light of her eyes. And I ' ll wager another cold bottle like this That each meniorx- ])ictures some dear SdUthern Miss. " So here ' s to the maids of our dear Dixie land : A greater blessing our Maker ne ' er ])lanned. Though they tease, yet they please clear through to the last. And brighten our lives as the, years hurry past. T. A.

Thev san.q- class songs, gave ells with a will Threw rocks at the windows from the streets of the ' ille; Took ofif the gates, hroke down the fence : Oh ; the fun they had, it was immense.

Now the ' X ' ille has a constable out at night. To see that all is kept quiet and right. And when he heard this frightful din. 1 le scurried around to find his men. Now, it happened that there was not one at home. So he decided to go out and face it alone. lie went ilcwn the street towards all the noise. And on getting near, saw it was college bo s. ( )n getting closer to listen and hark. Soon found that ' 07 was out for a lark. So he sa s to himself. sa s the constable, says he. " I ' ll pinch this crowd and Lake them with nie.

Fourteen there were who couldn ' t i; " et away, I ' or the t;un of the constahle hade them stay. So the one lonely man on that night before dark, J ' inched fourteen Soiihmorcs out for a lark. He threw them around and searched them as well, For they were so scared they dared not rebel. He put them in jail at the end of the town. Thinking next morning that he would come round To take them up before Judge Carr, And have his praise sung wide and far. And so he went back to his downy bed After the weary raid he had led. Now the jail was old. and failed to hold That hand of fourteen Sophomores bold. For they found a stick upon the floor. And silently they ]iried open the door. And then away like thieves in the dark They swiftly sped toward College Park. When the constable saw they had gotten away He said to himself " Now away they will stay. " He " d accompHshed his purpose, and if you go to the A ille. The people will proudly tell you still llow their brave constalile, alone after dark.

" 163 How to Keep Young Men on the Farm |F there is one phenomenon, whicli, above all others, is command- ing the attention of Sociologists, it is the const mth ' increas- ing tendency of young men to leave the country to seek their fortunes in the already over-crowded cities. The reason for the high interest excited by this movement is to be found in the two-fold problem which it presents for solution — What is to be done to diminish or to remove the evils, industrial, political, social and moral, which the existing overcrowded state of our cities entails ; and, what relief can be afforded from the drain to which this movement subjects our country districts? That both city and country are injuriijusl - affected by this exodus of brawn and brain, it hardly needs be asserted. We read it in the daily press not less than in the magazines. We hear it preached from the pulpit and declaimed from the public forum. ' e accept the fact ; and with eagerness seek the remedy, if any such there be. With the first phase of the problem, the eft ' ect on our municipal life, we are not, in this paper, to deal. We leave that aspect of the case to the economist, the statesmen, the sociologist or the moral philosopher. It is to the remaining ques- tion that we address ourselves. What can be done to induce young men to re- main in the country, to identify themselves with rural interests, to endeavor " to make two blades of grass grow where one grew before, " to elevate the ideals of country life, and by so doing, " to take arms, " as Hamlet says, " against a sea of troubles, and, by opposing end them. " For it must be clear to all that if grave evils come to the country, and other social disorders result to the munici- pality by the migration of the country youth to the city, then we shall be going directly to the source of the trouble if we can discover any means whereby this same young man can be persuaded to stay on the farm. It will appear that, when our part of the problem shall have been solved, there will remain no prob- lem, resulting from this cause, for solution by the reformers above referred to. To our mind the question is one worthy of careful consideration ; and, in order to solve it we must first observe the causes which impel the young men to leave the country. ISriefly stated, the reasons for this social phenomenon are to lie fdund in the greater attractiveness of the city to the youthful imagination, and the larger opportunities there afforded to strength and energy, ' Xow we do not intend to dwell upon the justice of this view. We shall simply observe that the extent and value of ( i)i)iirtuiiit are always relative, and that the attractiveness of any- 164 thin; In llu ' human niiiul imist (lc]ien(l in larjje degree upon education. We are forced to admit, though, tliat the young man, however much he may be mistaken ill his estimate of the advantages afforded him by city life, has a keen appreciation of the unattractiveness of country Hfe as he is compelled to live it, and knows by liitter ]iersonal e ])erience how small are the rewards, measured by com- mercial standards, which energy and perseverance yield under the economic conditions with which he is familiar. L ' nfortunately the sequel to his bold entrance into the lists of the fierce commercial life of the city, is too often for him a merciless disenchantment. Once involved in its wild vortex, he realizes the truth of the old adage, " all that glitters is not gold, " and he soon becomes one of the throng that constitutes, the problem for the student of city life. And it seems to be true that, with the, passage of the years, the struggle of cit - life be- comes fiercer, while the life in the country becomes more unattractive. Here, then, is the problem. What shall we do about it? In trying to answer the question we are forced to observe first that in the past, our efforts to change the conditions above referred to, have been largely directed towards the com- mercial aspect of the case. Wise plans have been formulated and carried out to bring about that enlightenment of the rural population which will enable them to make farming pay. With this end in view the National Government estab- lished and maintains its Department of Agriculture, employing the most eminent specialists upon every phase of science relating to agriculture : in pursuance of the same purpose, it established the Agricultural Colleges and Experiment Stations in each state and territory of the union. It was to extend and enlarge the scope of this work that the state governments have so liberally endowed these colleges that they have, in many states, become great universities. In like manner the experiment stations have been supplemented by departments of Farmers ' In- stitutes, the function of which is to establish a personal chain of communication between the farm and the Experiment Station and College. We need not point out the beneficent result of this development. To say that, in many portions of the union, methods of agriculture have been revolu- tionized is to utter a truism. Agriculture has been made to pay — to pay well ; to pav handsomely. If there are districts or states in which it does not pay, the condition is either due to a failure on the part of state legislatures to supplement, in adequate degree, the work of the federal government, or grows out of a settled disregard of the means of improvement by those whom it is intended to serve. We believe that the prejudice against " book farming, " as it has been styled, is dving out, and that our farmers are becoming daily more firml y con- vinced of the usefulness of these scientific aids to agriculture. lUit, on the other hand, it needs hardly be pointed out that in many parts of the union, and 165 notably in the Eastern States, the farmers ' sons do not avail themselves of the advantages offered by agricultural colleges. In spite of the lavish expenditures of state and nation to make agriculture pay. young men do still leave the farm in large numbers to crowd the cities ; and, what may seem paradoxical, but what is by no means a local or incidental feature of the case, is the fact that the greater number of young men educated at our agricultural colleges do not go back to the farm. Xow whence this condition ? Why is it that the utmost effort of state and nation to make agriculture profitable has failed to revive a dying interest? The answer is to be found in the other aspect of the view, above noted, which the rural youth entertains concerning the conditions incident to country life, as he is compelletl to live it. Country life to him is unattractive. A recognition of this fact has induced our wisest educators to inaugurate a system of instruction, the aim of which is to develop in the hearts of our young people a warmer sympathy with nature. Hence Nature Studies, so-called. As the name implies, the svstem com])rehends a study of natural science in all its branches, but more especially those phases of it which enter into the daily life of the child. Without seeming to do so. the child, by observing simple facts of every-day life, acquires a knowl- edge of natural law. but better still, learns to know and inevitably to love the world about him. The ])lants of the field, the birds of the air, the babbling brook, the glistening snow, the fierce thunder-storm not less than the wee small voice of the cricket — every phenomenon of nature has a new ' meaning for him. The country becomes an infinite wonderland more marvelous than the realm of the fairies. It is true that the full significance of this comj aratively recent departure from the beaten path of education is not fully appreciated. There are those who decry it. who deplore the study of " weeds and bugs and things " as catering to the truant spirit of childhood and substituting mere pleasure for work. They lose sight of the fact that work can and should become a pleasure. " Blessed is that man who finds joy in his work. " and the same measure of blessing is the reward of the child who labors with cheerfulness of heart. The limits of this paper will not permit a full discussion of the merits of this system of elementary education. But we believe that it opens a new life for our little ones. We are unreservedly in favor of its adoption in all our public schools. Moreover, we advocate, espec- ially in the rural districts, that emphasis be placed upon those pl;iases of the study which bear directly upon agriculture. To accomplish this end there should be attached to every schoolhouse enough ground, in addition to that used for play- grounds, to enable the children, under the supervision of the teacher, to devote a portion of the school hour to a practical application of the principles of grow- ing plants. 166 Tills Is liy nil iiieans an original Idea with us. In many of our lart;c cities we find that school play-grounds are helng enlarged with this very end in view. Does it not seem strange, that in the city, where land Is highly valued, it is not deemed wasteful or extravagant to expend large sums of money in this manner? How much more simple is it to inculcate a familiarity with nature in the country where are all her visible forms spread out in limitless profusion, right at hand. It will he maintained, no doubt, that the cost of inaugurating such a system would be too great: that it would involve too much increase in tlie tax-rate of the counties. Surely such a consideration will not be argued seriousl}- when the cheapness of land in most of our rural districts is taken into account. Let us put the matter in this form — What is the cost of an acre of land to a comnumity as compared with the fact that, through the use of the land for the i)urposcs out- lined above, one or two or ])erchance a score of young men may lie induced to remain in the country to increase the productive capacity of the community ? ' e are convinced that th ere are in this latest plan to reconcile the rural youth to country life, infinite possibilities of good; but again we are forced to observe that even this will not achieve the object aimed at. Could the child remain in this fairyland of nature as opened to him by his nature studies, his life would be pleasant, indeed. What could the city offer to offset such charms as are here presented to his -iew ? lUit, alas! what happens when the hours of school duty are over? We submit to a candid public opinion, if the home training of the children is not frequently, ( unfortunately, almost generally throughout the rural districts), such as to nullify the teachings of nature study. What is the use to expect the child, who has been in the hands of the teacher for a few hours, to have a deep all-pervading love of nature, when, as soon as he is released from the duties of school, he is compelled to become the ordinary drudge of the farm? How can we reasonably expect the boy to love nature wdien from the first peep of dawn until long after the sun has sunk to rest, he is compelled to engage in labor of the most mechanical sort, a labor that is too often beyond his strength? What intellectual development can be expected when a few months are clipjied from the school term in the fall in order that the child ' s labor may complete the harvesting of the grain : and when a corresponding shortening of the term is made in the spring that that same child labor may aid in the planting of new crops? What must result when the child is thus caught between the upper and nether millstones of drudgery in the summer months and drudgery added to study in winter ? Is it not reasonable to find the enthusiasm ground out of him ? Why shouldn ' t he dislike the country, and look to the city for emancipation? Are we painting the picture too dark ? Possibly so ; but we are convinced that there is enough of the force of truth in the argument to show one cause, be its influence great or small, which tends to nulify the influence of nature study education. 167 W ' liat, tlieii, is the remedy? The formula for echicatiii!;- a child has lonij;- Ijeen announced: " Educate the grandfather. " This, we l)elieve, is the comiect- ing link that is to make it possible to educate the youth to remain in the countr ' . Let parents consider the practical aspect of this question: Is it better to emplov child labor for farm work, when it is manifest that such labor is not the most economical, and when it surely entails the creation in the child ' s mind of a lasting dislike for country life : or is it lietter to treat the child so that his physical strength will not be stunted, that his intellectual powers may be developed, and that he may be brought into a broad sympathy with nature, which will be the attractive force that will surely hold him on the farm? Will not the economic advantage be greater from having young men intellectually keen, as well as physically able, with a sympathy and liking for the country life, remaining in the country and devoting that same energy and intelligence to production, than from the conversion of under-developed children into mere drudges, out of sym- ]iath - with their environment? Is child labor any less heinous or uneconomical in the country than in the city? What shall it advantage a man if he gain a child ' s labor and lose the youth ' s productive power? Piut it is not only in an economic sense that it would be better to aid children in their development, rather than to retard their growth as above outlined. There must inevitably result a great moral uplifting from such a policy. A broader view of life must surely follow, and much of the narrow provincialism of country life will vanish. Let the culture of the public schools and the college and the university flow back to the farm, not awa ' from it, and we shall have indeed a regenerated agriculture and a transformed country life. If there be any truth in the principles laid down above, it must be clear that we must not depend upon any one factor of this educational system to produce the revolution demanded for the cure of the evil which constitutes the ]3roblem for our solution. There must be a more intelligent treatment of children in the rural home. Let home life be made attractive at w hatever cost ; for the effort will be as bread cast on the waters, and after many years, it will return an hundred fold. The system of Nature Study must be developed to its fullest extent in our public schools. Our school commissioners nuist not balk at the first cost ; for it means the restoration of " the yoemanry, our country ' s boast. " The agricultural college must be liberally patronized in order that the full benefit afforded by state and federal aid may be disseminated among the rural youth. . t all these stages the fact must be impressed upon the youthful mind that the greatest good lies near to nature ' s heart, and the yoing man must be urged to go back to the farm. We believe that with each generation, the urging will be needed less and less. The logic of circumstances will jroint the way not to the overcrowded city, but back tt) the " fresh fiel ls and pastures new. " 1 68 College Ode Glenworth Stiir. is. L. F. Zerkel.
