MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE Professor Myron Creese Professor Myron Creese was born in the small town of Red Rock, situated in the northwestern section of Pennsylvania. During his l)oyhood he attended school in Union City, Pennsylvania, and upon the completion of his course at the High School matriculated at the Pennsylvania State College ; from which he was gradu- ated in June 1905, with the degree of Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. Upon graduation he was awarded the T. W. White Fellowship and was thus enabled to prosecute his studies for the degree of Electrical Engineer, which he received in June, 1906. During his undergraduate career at the Pennsylvania State College Professor Creese was closely identified with many phases of its life other than the purely scholastic. He was a member of the Phi Kappa Phi Fraternity, served as major of the Cadet Battalion, and participated in a number of other activities of the college, particularly athletics. In 1906, Professor Creese was appointed instructor in electrical engineering at the Pennsylvania State College. When the Department of Electrical Engineering was established at the Maryland Agricultural College, Professor Creese was re- quested to accept a position at the institution and assist in the development of the new department. Through his earnest efforts and his fidelity to the cause, the department was brought to its present state of efficiency. As a reward for his services he was appointed professor of electrical engineering and physics in June, 1911. Professor Creese is an associate member of the American I nstitute of Electrical Engineers. The Class of 1912 has a keen appreciation of the efforts of Professor Creese in its behalf and of his uniform kindness and unfailing courtesy under all circumstances. Professor Creese is but starting upon his chosen career, and from our association with him as a teacher and as a friend, we know that it will be a most successful one.

Their school-work near complete, now look they out On life ' s bright path through window hiding moor and fen, Revealing only moimtain tops, visions that route All fears, misgivings, clouds — dispelling every doubt. Now dazzling dreams of noble work for home. For Country and for God — of victory indeed. Gilds every view, swells every heart. Where ' er they roam The paths drop fatness, dreams come true!

Sponsor for Senior Class MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 17 18 THE 1912 REVEILLE Robert Lee Tolson There was something in his face, There was something in his eyes, Like a light of sacred grace, Like a beaming of the skies. There was something in his tread, That was proud as well as fine ; And the way he held his head Made him king along the line. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 19 20 THE 1912 REVEILLE Lieutenant Fulton W. Allen, Company C Salisbury, Md. Horticultural " This, gentlemen, is the skull of a nine- year-old mvle. " This dismal landscape is our prize from the Senate Chamber. Yep, he is argumentation personified. Of late he has become quite an exponent of the ' ' I think, " and the " It seems to me, " theories; which same theories if left to develop themselves, bid fair to make him a most successful " ward- heeler " or a " stump-politician. " Fulton has become quite famous in his athletic accomplishments. Any eve- ning one might find him in the gym doing some of his various acrobatic stunts, what ain ' t. He can walk on his hands and stand on his head much better than upon his feet ; in fact we be- lieve this inverted position to be the cause of the incoherent line of talk which usually comes to us upside down. As for his music? Well, Allen is more or less of a shining light in har- mony ' s realm. That " ragtime " violin which he so ardently grinds is the joy of our hearts. He can get more squeaks, grunts and groans out of that box, than any other being in existence. We will forgive Fulton everything however, if he will only take " ye old fiddle " with him when he makes his getaway in June. Like all great artists his weakness is along the petticoat-line. In three guesses we wager you couldn ' t strike it right. You lose ! It ' s neither the tall and willowy, nor the medium. Nay, nay, Pauline. It ' s the plump damsel who gets him every time. He ' s not satisfied with a " rag a bone and a hank of hair, " but he wants ' em fleshy too. In fact we almost believe that the greater the avoirdupois the greater his love. But beware old scout, for it is said that, " The female of this species is more deadly than the male. " (Excuse me, Kipling.) MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 21 Lieutenant Franklin E. Anderson, Company B Childs, Md. Agronomy " Methi7iks I am marvelous hairy about the face. " Sophomore Year, Corporal; Vice President of Y. M. C. A. Junior Year, Sergeant. Senior Year, President of Morrill Literary Society; Senior Class Editor of Triangle; Class Prophet. Bang! Bang! " Doggone it. I ' ll wager, that ' s those fellows dinnping rats. I don ' t think I ought to allow that. Do you? Well I ' ll stop it any- way. " At first the uncovered pedal of a mighty colossus appears. Then, as it were to fiu ' ther our thoughts of this an- cient personage, we see the many folds of his white tunic. But hist! Was ist? The man does not belie the foot. Colossus? No. A mere man comes forth, tip-toeing, noiseless as his silent- shod, red-skin brother, until, yes until he has found the ever-awaiting splin- ter. Anderson the sleuth is prowling! Lo, who is this we see hobbling doA n the steps of Science Hall, with an ear of corn in one hand and a bunch of cow- peas in the other. A miniature Grass- hopper, of course. Upon approaching a little closer we again meet Anderson, yes Anderson who has just returned from Chicago. But oh that walk. ' ' What a queer walk? " Hush! Silence! Speak not thus, if you have any respect for your face and adjoining anatomy. For this is a man of miracles and does mar- velous things ; and you will agree with me when I relate to you the cause of his present condition. While in Chicago, judging a herd of Jerseys, one of them stepped on his toe, at which he became exceedingly angry and exclaimed, ' ' Oh, sugar cowie! Now get off my toe. " And the story is told that the judges dropped as if dead, all of Chicago was shocked, and even the poor dumb cows in the arena trembled with fear. While in this chaos our team captured the cup and started direct for M. A. C. at such a terrific speed that no speedometer could record it. 22 THE 1912 REVEILLE Lieutenant Adjutant Earl V. Benson Horticultural " So sweet and gentle arid yet so prim. " Sophomore Year, Color Sergeant. Junior Year, Secretary Y. M. C. A., ' 11, ' 12. Treasurer, Rossbourg Club: Social Editor, Reveille. Baltimore, Md. Senior Year, This inoffensive youth with the face of a Fisher girl is the possessor of the temperament of a two-year-old kitten and the grim faithfulness of an English bulldog. As a society man Earl V., better known as " Sister, " is an up-to-date success, so we are told. Continually lamenting the fact that his time is so taken up with social duties; brass but- tons to polish, hair to cut and pumps to shine, ' tis no wonder he does not miss an opportunity to indulge in frivolity, and that the girls all love him. Oh! how distressing is cruel Fate to the deserving. As a military man " Sister " cannot be beaten. This year he was Com- mandant of Cadets and had for his valet Johnny Upham and for his sec- retary Jimmy Elbel. It is seldom that two dogs will obey one master so faith- fully, yet it is the case, and all that is needed is the first note of the whistle. Generally speaking, Earl has a countenance that isn ' t so awfully bad to look upon. Now, gentle reader, don ' t interpret that to mean that we consider him handsome. Far be it from. However, his beautifully plastered blonde hair really does give him a comely aspect. Notwithstanding these facts we have to give it to him that he is some gardener. We predict that it will not be so many centuries before he will be growing sweet lemons and peeless oranges on the same tree. Still Earl modestly denies any such intentions but, " To say why gals act so and so or don ' t, Ud be presumming. For maybe to mean ' j ' es ' and say ' no ' Comes natural to woman. " MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 23 Senior Private Earl R. Burrier Electrical Engineering " A Noisij Man ' ' Baltimore, Md. Sophomore Year, Corporal. Junior Year, Chief Trumpeter, Band; Treasurer Rossbourg Club; Vice President Rifle Club. Senior Year, President Rifle Club; President Rossbourg Club; Treasurer Reveille Association. Honest though, we didn ' t intend to supply Darwin ' s missing link " on this page, but merely to furnish an ordinary illustration from Ernest Thompson Seaton ' s book, Wild Ani- mals; I Have Met. This particular brute is Earl Roscoe Burrier, dubbed " George " and called " Erb " for short. Born a musician, educated to know that his music is a silent vibration of the constituent parts of one Heinze tomato can, aged to produce that qual- ity familiar to us all as " discord; " anc finally culminated by a " throne " at the Senior Private ' s table, are cold facts for which he should now be " do- ing time. " Although possessed of a strong, reverberating, richly modu- lated voice, eloquence is not " Erb ' s " forte. Noise is his specialty He has more brands of excruciating noises tucked away in his anatomy than was ever heard in a 4th of July celebration. The worst of it is he is always looking around for new acoustic fields to conquer. In pursuance of this occupation, we wish to take this opportunity to state that he has played at one time or another every instrument of torture in the band, and as yet none has quite come up to his ideal. Last year " Erb " was elected to the presidency of the " Student Strap-hangers Association. " This fraternity held its meetings every Friday night, and some- times on Saturday also. This year however the weekly meetings are held in Baltimore and thus he is relieved of the inconvenience of paying his fare, a nickel at a time. Needless to say, it is a " Co-ed " association. 24 THE 1912 REVEILLE Lieutenant Nokman L. Clark, Companj A Laurel, Md. Electrical Eng " neering " Is he great because he speaks large words? " Junior Year, Sergeant; President Glee Club; Class Poet. Senior Year, Assistant Busines Manager Reveille; Secretary Boxing Club; Secretary Rossbourg Club. Yes, that telioligical Avord " Spar " rhymes with Laur — , afar, and car, but gentle reader take it from me, they used to be connected not only rythmi- cally with Spar but very intimately also. Nuf Sed about the past. Spartails modestly says he will be a Great Engineer, get wise to the capital " G, " and we believe he has already secured an option on several tablets in the Hall of Fame, or perhaps on the Prof ' s Hall. Did you say Family? Now let me tell you the secret about the " Family. " You understand, " The more a fellow eats the Moore he wants to eat, and there is but one way around it. You know, cause and effect — action and reaction. Spar is the action but — there must be a reac- tion somewhere. " ' Tis all right. When it comes to music — well, Norman is there. " If you ever heard him ' rag ' it, You would shout, ' Quick fellows ' ' bag " it. ' For he ' s as precious as the wallet of a multi-millionaire! " A debater. Ah, the very pillars of the Senate-chamber have never heard the voice equal to the one of this man, verily I say unto you, if you have a barn to sell or a patent medicine to vend call on our only and original. Of prospects we can say nothing, he does all the saying himself when he predicts that his first job (nothing smaller than bell-boy, janitor or valet) will produce a change of momentous importance. What it is we cannot guess, but someone said an endowment to an Orphan Asylum — no, not a financial one. From the way he downs the hash we will say that it had better be a charitable offering to a chop- hoase. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 25 Senior Private Showell C. Dennis Chemical Ocean City, Md. " Be a sport if you only last a minute. " Sophomore Year, Corporal; Secretary and Treasurer Class; Member Imperial Order Muti- neers. Senior Year, President New Mercer Literary Society. Just look again at the face in the upper right-hand corner of this page and see how much is there that you had not noticed before. Note the sparkle in those eyes. Ireland can well be proud of her donation to American man- hood. Why even his hair is blessed with a ruddy complexion which is much more apparent in real life than the picture would lead one to believe. " Reds " is one of our chemical men and he has really made some marvelous discoveries along the line of chemical research. For instance, he has ascer- tained definitely, that when a red head, an Irish temper, a nd unruly chemicals are brought into combination, an ex- plosion is the inevitable result ; and the only wonder to us is that the lid has not been blown off the " Chem Lab " long ago. Thus far however, the damages have been confined to blown out sinks and shattered glassware; except one day when he spilled a tube of sulfuric acid on his stool and got up with the map of Ocean City etched into the bosom of his trousers, but luckily it went no further than that. But if the chemicals in the compound mentioned above are replaced by peanuts, then there is another phenomenon which can be appreciated only by those who have witnessed it. If you wish to see him in his glory however, just give him a pipe and an attentive audience and then be prepared to hear some of the most miraculous tales that the Eastern Shore can produce. Because Dennis certainly handles the truth in a careless manner, even for an Eastern Shoreman. For if you ' ll believe it (but very few will) Ocean City is the most wonderful spot on the map — outside of Charles County. 26 THE 1912 REVEILLE Senior Private Allen B. Duckett Bladensburg, Md. Horticultural " A divinity in disguise {well disguised). " Sophomore Year, " M " in football, and in track. Junior Year, Captain Track Team; " I " in baseball, and in track. Senior Year, ' ice President Boxing Club. This l ristle-haired gink is one of the Burg ' s choicest blossoms and they sure did hate to let him go; so much so that ihey made him promise to come home every evening for fear that those bad rah! rah! boys would ])e rude to him, or corrupt his morals. But take it from the scril e, kind reader, you can ' t un- rotten a rotten egg. Yet he of the ministerial aspect and entle voice, is by nature an athlete. He can run well, any bad debt can do that; he can play ball, any grass-eater can do likewise; finally he can play football and is more or less one of ' ' Boo- hoo ' s " favorites. Yea bo, but how the Duke does love the " Deutcher Stu- dieren. " He can detect " Boohoo ' s " cough a mile off on a foggy day, so look for the usual formula, late car. A fair dame once accused " Sonny " of looking like Duke, so " Sonny " hasn ' t spoken to her since? Can you blame him? Study the picture carefully girls and give us your candid opinion. Send answers to the Puzzle Editor. Still, the girls are just crazy about him and simply will not let him alone. They say that he has such a bunch of their photographs in his room that he has often to sleep on the roof so as not to disturb their quarrels over him. For a long while we were doubtful as to whether this class would get him or whether he would go with that maudlin crowd — the class of ' 11. But fortune smiled on us and he gives promise of graduating v ith one of the best classes that ever entered old M. A. C. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 27 Senior Private Walter A. Furst Baltimore, Md. Electrical Engineering " i e is a good Electrical man, but of Calculus he knows nichts. " Junior Year, Chairman May Ball Floor Committee; Sergeant. Senior Year, Chairman Floor Committee Rossbourp; Club; M. A. A. in football. This saintly visage here exposed to view is the exclusive property of Walter A. Furst, known to all of us as " F uzzy. " Such a perfect example of contentment one rarely sees, notwithstanding the fact that his troubles are not few. W. A. F. has grown very popular with the Profs since he entered these grim walls, and his popularity is still gro ' wing. Doc Tolly says, " Men may come and men may go, but Calculus conditions stay on forever. " One of his greatest accomplishments and the pride of his heart is his walk, which to the casual observer is a most perfect imitation of an intoxicated duck. Fuzzy likes it, and we almost believe admires it, so for that and vari- ous other reasons we endure it. Did you say Art? Believe me this specimen is right there on the art stuff. Such an artist in fact, that his signa- ture is an exact duplicate of Harrison- Christy. Even Myron has begun to realize that he moves in a world different from us human beings, and has gone so far as to allow him, on a number of occasions, to use his pet lathe. A deep baritone voice, which is the closet human approximation to a dying calf, still another of his proud accomphshments; and his classmates are unanimous in their opinion, that if he lives long enough, and a sufficiently great change takes place in his vocal chords, it is just possible that some day he may be able to attract Caruso ' s attention (by disturbing the peace). After considering the kind offer of the B. O. Railroad to supply him with the necessary appliances to become an electrical engineer, he decided upon the course in that science; hence the infliction of " Fuzzy " upon us as a freshman in the fall of nineteen hundred and nine. 28 THE 1912 REVEILLE Senior Private W. S. Grace Easton, Md. Civil Engineering. " Caesar had his Brutus, Charles II his Cromwell, and hy heck I have my Doc Tolly. " Vice President Senior Class; Manager May Ball, ' 11; Assistant Manager baseball, ' 11; Sergeant Junior Year, Secretary New Mercer Literary Society, ' 11; Member Students ' Con- ference Committee, ' 11; Manager Baseball, ' 12; Secretary Athletic Association, ' 12; Chairman Student Assembly, ' 12. Bill, alias Frog, the alway present uncalled-for factor, is one of the small raw products of the Eastern Shore. Yet he never tries to conceal the fact of his habitation, especially if the sub- ject under discussion is a pile of oyster shells or musk-rat skins. Bill is the big cheese when it comes to intelligent looks, acquired by persistent posing before the looking glass. To show his high degree of intelli- gence in the business line, Bill organ- ized a corporation of which he made himself President. This organization under his leadersh ip will undertake all sorts of Engineering Problems, but its main efforts will be put in " Engi- neering Love Affairs. " Special rates will be given to Major Kemp, E. Z. Martz, and members of the Senior Class. As a joker Bill has the whole Class beaten a country mile. You might be able to conquer his wit but you will never be able to tame it. If you want to find Bill in a crowd, drawling his grossly-worthless, affected phrases, look for his pipe. As sheriff of the high perch of the New Barracks he holds full sway with his " rat brigade. " " Wie gehts, Cy Perkins! I deputize thee to fix my bed. " As soon as E. Z. Martz makes his appearance he is saluted with the following, " Speaking of cheese, Martz, how do you feel? " Immediately poor Martz is forced to retreat at the onslaught of the well organized " rat brigade. " MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 29 Lieutenant Hugh C. Gill, Company B Baltimore, Md. Biological " e looks innocent, but beware, still water flows deep. " Splash! Splash! " Hark! Listen! " And out of the impenetrable depths of Paint Branch comes the faint speck of light to us. All amazed we proceed through the darkness to investigate this particular " Maid o ' the Mist. " Silence. A voice is heard to utter, " Goll-durned dat frog, I ' ll git him yet, I must have him or else Prof. C will credit me with a juicy zip tomorrow. " We venture a little closer, and to our astonishment l)ehold our friend Gill standing in four feet of water and strug- gling with a huge bull-frog. The battle rages and the water surges to and fro, but at last he lands his victim safe on shore. Alas, the day is won and we are just ready to congratulate him — when we are aroused from our dreams bj ' the first call for reveille. In physics Gill was a walking en- cyclopedia. He spent much of his time during the first year in investi- gating physical phenomena. In view of this fact. Professor Creese, each day played upon his knowledge of physics like a perpetual dynamo. As a social man he stands in the very heights of society. It is a known fact, how- ever, that it was not until his Senior year that he could have the courage to ask eine Frau out to a Rossburg. " He loves the dance, but oh my, the preliminaries. " Being very sedate he is necessarily admired greatly by the fair ones. Much time is spent when he is preparing for the ballroom, for each hair on his head must lie at its proper angle and the brass buttons on his evening dress shine like jewels. Never mind, Gill; keep it up, for neatness and pleasing countenances will be sure to win you a charming companion to help make life a flowery vale when we have departed, one from another. 30 THE 1912 REVEILLE Major William B. Kemp " Welcome, Md. Agriculture " 0 all sad words of tongue or quill, The saddest are these — ■ ' Take a look at Bill. ' " Junior Year, First Sergeant, Company C; Treasurer; Captain, Football Team; Manager Track Team; Class Editor Triangle; Chairman Students ' Conference Committee. Senior Year, Secretary of Class; Athletic Editor Reveille; Member Stock Judging Team; Member Students ' Conference Committee; " M " in Football, ' 10; Track, ' 11, ' 12; " M " and Star in Football, ' 11, ' 12. To be candid we are fortunate in possessing this photo of one of the few white inhabitants of Charles Countj , alias " God ' s County. " " Bill " says that all wise people come from that county and we heartily agree with him on that point — the wiser they are the quicker they come. On bright sunny afternoons ' ' Bill " maybe seen strolling in the direction of the ' ville. The purpose of these walks no one can tell, but it has been sug- gested that the ' ville is noted for its spon- sorial records. At times he is even more mysterious in his actions, and like his wit, it is very difficult to determine the point at issue; but from experience " Bill " has learned to tell a joke, so when he laughr; Me swell the chorus. However, he really has a very well developed sense of humor and can always see the joke — afterwards. Sometimes the " Big Chief " gets real serious, especially when a rebellion is started at the Senior Privates ' table. He was made major merely to keep the Senior Privates from tearing off the roof, and the minor duty of making inspections twice a week to see if the room were still there. Kemp is an ardent student, and is very much interested in the subject, " Devia- tions in the cracks of Pennsylvania Avenue. " When cornered he is some runner too, and recently broke all records in running from the brickyard in Bladensburg to College in 1.10 flat. But we have learned only a few of " Bill ' s " vices and less of his virtues. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 31 Lieutenant J. Maynard Lednum, Company C Preston, Md. Civil Engineering " Yon hean-pole hath a lean and hungry look. " Sophomore Year, Corporal. Junior Year, Sergeant Major; " M " in baseball. No, this is not Ichabod Crane, nor is it the " Class Mascot; " and we really didn ' t put it in here as a joke. In fact he is a real human being just like we are, even though he is from the East- ern Shore. Yes we have quite a few ' ' oystermen " in our midst, and in fact find them a great benefit, in that they furnish such fine examples of prehis- toric man. But to return to Lednum (by the way that name is not pronounced lead-dome), for although very descrip- tive he mutters it a little differently. One of his chief characteristics is hi;; laugh. It is neither a guffaw nor a giggle, a snicker nor a a hinny, an audi- ble smile nor a sheepish grin; but can best be described as a cross bet een a yawn and a hiccough. It is ho " VAever entirely beyond human imitation. Yea, verily though " Curly " is some surveyor. He has made an exhaus- tive study on the extremely difficult and engrossing subject, " How to run a line without transit cross-hairs ' ' and " How to survey without removing the dust-shield. " " Doc " Tolly is continually harassing him on account of the ability he shows, and showers the most delightful and encouraging epithets upon him. However " Curly " is one of " Doc ' s " most faithful disciples and is in fact considerably efficient as a quill artist. Did you say a joker? Don ' t mentionit. " Curly " is a humorous guy all right, and some of the witticisms he inflicts upon his unoffending classmates are really heart-breaking. Really though he is awfully clevah, dontchu know, and his jokes and puns are exceptionally original — we don ' t think. 32 THE 1912 REVEILLE Senior Private Charles L. Linhardt Baltimore, Md. Mechanical Engineering ' ' Just like a river. Small head and big mouth. " Senior Year, Associate Business Manager Reveille. CharlesL. alias ' ' Linny, " is the only original, genuine, dyed-in-the-wool rat of the Senior Class, thank the Lord. After steering around the United States, like a ship with a broken rudder, he descended upon us last fall and may now be seen at " Cat ' s " emporium boss- ing the big jobs. " Hey, youse guys, get busy! ' Buck ' Warton where did youse put dat jack? " By such familiar and entirely appropriate phrases, fre- quently used to bust in de haid uv uh burr el, we have an easy formula for differentiating him from the rest of the bunch. Speaking of differentiating, " Linny " is a lightning speed artist in this direction, and even his " feline majesty " has been known to open his eyes in astonishment, or despair, we don ' t know which. However ' ' Linny " has told us that he has already turned down offers from Cornell and Boston Tech to teach Calculus and English. " Whence cometh those wailings and gnashing of teeth? " ' Tis only a few of " Linny ' s " most intimate friends helping him to celebrate his birthday. The ban- quet which he tendered to his classmates was pronounced a splashing success, and will long be remembered with fondness by his friends ; needless to say Linny will also recomember. Our request that he stick around until we opened sundry bottles of glue, strap, grease and ink was received with the utmost willingness on his part. As a business manager " Linny ' s " lucky star shines at its brightest. In his short sojourn among us, the advertisers have come to know him by his first name; and he has really become quite famous, or notorious, by his tooth-pulling methods for the painless extraction of their hard-earned lucre. He is there with the frenzied finance all right. " No ' ads ' today, solong! " MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 33 Drum Major Maynard W. McBride Chemical Frederick, Md.

After a short course under " Bob " Tolson, during which time he became so crooked that he could only hide behind a corkscrew, he was ready to be elected President of the Y. M. C. A. In that capacity he is very adept at selling last year ' s Membership tickets at reduced rates (owes me $.50). Mac is strong on religion when not required to practice it. One Sunday last summer, while he remained at the Ex- periment Station to show the Staff everything about chemistry, he heard a Bell in the direction of Berwyn. I7e struck the trail, and was next seen in the home of the Justice of the Peace. Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday as well as a few other days finds Mac on the job. " Stiff neck, ' Mac? ' " " Isay ' Mac, ' what makes your eyes so red? " These and similar questions were the outcome of McBride ' s short sojourn among the sky- scrapers and petite stenographers of Baltimore. " Mac, " you see, has a peculiar fascination for the gaylights — -you understand, he is President of the Y. M. C. A. Between trips to Berwyn " Mac " occupies his time by editing the Triangle. " Good news — bad news — any kind of news, just make it News and we ' ll fire it in. " To say this a-la- " Mac " assume a can ' t-get-home-until-morning expression, turn your toes in, and your knees out. All of the original that he prints comes from the back issues of the Baltimore Sun or the Frederick Bladder. 34 THE 1912 REVEILLE Buck Private S.

" ' ' Oh deary! please don ' t mingle with those fair sex of the Anglo-Saxon race ' was the cunning request of the little Spanish queen when " Marty " took his sad departure from the South Sea Islands along about a decade before the discovery of the north pole (or one of the North Poles). " Ugh! el hogar nunca fue ' como esto. " This was about the first ejaculation attempted by this ' ' Chinese puzzle " when he landed here. But finally after spending several years of tireless re- search work under the careful super- vision of Professor T — , he concluded that the sweetest flower in all the parks was the " Howard. " " Marty " is among the pioneers of the Class of Nineteen-dozen, and as an experimenter in regard to scholastic work he is a wonder, for he has tried every course offered at M. A. C, and now he is contemplating a course in ministry at Harvard. When the college band was organized, " Marty " proved himself to be one of the most efficient clarinet players obtainable, and after several years of successful play- ing, the Bandmaster decided to retire him on a pension consisting of one U. S. magazine rifle and a beautiful set of side arms. But this small misfortune did not tend to destroy his ambition, and before his furlough was clue, he rejoined the band for the good of the cause at the recent State Fair held at Clarktown, commonly known as Laurel. After graduating it is believed that he will return to his native country and immediately take up the teaching of agriculture. We all wish him success in all his undertakings, and I feel confident in saying that he will succeed, providing he does not fall in love with " The only one.

" " Entered upon the books on the 12th day of September— 1909, one Eee-Zee. " So goes down upon the college records the number of Mr. E. Z. Martz, which same he has kept untarnished ever since. This year however there has been cjuite a turbu- lent reaction going on within that ivory dome, and now, really, he has begun to believe that he has been incorrectly labeled. " A large C. E. after my name is more to my liking than an E. Z. before it, " so said Martz when given his choice of handles. His most beloved subject however is Political Economy, and he hopes to relieve the people of Frederick from the high cost of living by putting to prac- tical use the theoretical ideas that he has learned here by ardent erudition. Mr. Martz is much like the fairer sex. No matter what the conversation may be, whether he knows anything about it or not, he must have the last Avord, if it be but his old chestnut, " it is so because it is. " " Beds. On-right-into-line (MARCH). Beds. (HALT. " ) Such sounds from the inside of Room 50 Old Barracks, have been causing the neighbors much worry of late. Upon investigation we found our youthful cadet merely practicing his ability to command. However the locked door seemed to indicate " Easy ' s " fear of wholesale desertion. But as a sample of a very original walk Martz possesses one imported from Frederick which has been unrivalled by any seen around the Park in late years. Cultivated by the rough undulations which one finds upon the face of the earth near his old homestead, such an amble would have to be acquired not merely purchased. 36 THE 1912 REVEILLE Senior Private Marion H. Melvin Crisfield, Md. Civil Engineering ' Lookout peacock, Fm here. ' ' This uncertified check arrived here from Milwaukee via Crisfield in ' 08 and was immediately christened ' ' Kee- hee.

To do this it would have to show his turkey walk and his kee-hee laugh, both of which are very notice- al)le when he and his rat friends are on the w ayto see their " queens, " which is why we wish to remark, that as a fusser tiie College must go some to find an- other of his caliber. Wonder what the leap-year will do for him; will it be a silk dress or a w4fe? ' ' Fine feathers make fine birds ' ' — and he sure is a bird. Dressed in a brown suit, green hat and red tie, together A ith a pair of take-me-home-for-$2.98 pumps, he is some sport. Nicht Wahrf It wa- while dressed thusly one Satur- day evening he paid a visit to Mt. Ra- nier, just to look over some of the fair ones. His stay was short, the time con- sumed in leaving shorter, and the list of his wardrobe when checked at College Park was even shorter. As a civil engineer with the accent on " civil, " he is there. Why he is so civil it hurts. The only one who doesn ' t appreciate Marion ' s engineering abilities is " Doc " Tolly; and we have been forced to conclude that " Doc " is jealous of " Kee-hee ' s " conversational alDilities. Yes, doubtless without a doubt. Despite the fact of his being the human fashion-plate, and a walking model of a college clothes-shop, we must admit that he is all right in his way but as he tips the scales at 89 — well.

If happily you chance to spy a broad smile under the shade of a Pea-Cutting Hat roaming about the campus, you have seen the only and original " Josh. " Since coming here though he has blossomed out, found a girl, shaves once in awhile, knows the opposite sex at sight, and believe me he is some dancer. However it may not be apparent to the casual observer but we can give you our word, the result of long and patient observation and endless data, that Albert is the most efficient (99.99%) bluffer in the class. It was once suggested to those in au- thority at the College that someone be hired to play the tenor horn. But while this proposal is being tied with red tape " Josh " has been graciously placed behind it, merely to keep the valves from rusting. His close associa- tion with this harmony (?) producer has led him to believe that he himself can sing tenor, yea verily; but the student body can bring forth an abundant proof that he has not the said voice. On such beautiful and uplifting hymns as the " Old Family Tooth Brush " and " Tell I—, I ' ll Be There " he wrecks terrible ven- geance. When it comes to Electricity, " Josh " and his Hydro-Hystre-Electro waves makes the present scientists sit up and take notice. Why fireworks and explosions are an everyday occurrence with him. In his marvelous research work he has dis- covered phenomena for which men like Edison and others would have given millions of thanks. We have his word on the subject that he don ' t know what it was, but it was just the same. Of his future we can say nothing, for he is one who may and who may not. 38 THE 1912 REVEILLE Lieutenant Q.

A glance at the visaged outline which smears the top of this page, and then to name it. Yes, it ' s " Keg, " ' ' Hippo, " " Judge " Mudd, a distinguished mem- ber of the Beef Trust. Hippo ' s mental capacity for the construction of soap- bubble castles has never reached its limit. Each day we find new designs. First a coal-yarcl construction in Egypt; then an ice-cream establishment in Greenland; and finally, by the aid of " Commy ' s " Tactics and " Kid " Sulli- van ' s brawn, he dreams of exterminat- ing all the " Dom Niggers " in Charles County. That fourth dimensional mind of his has afforded us much concern; for on particular occasions it allows him to forget how to spell that Polish first name of his, to keep late hours read- ing Athletic dope, and to indulge in a superabundance of classroom sleep. However, " Keg " is a charter member of the Invulnerable Order of Bachelors, Once and only once did he scrape up the nerve to go to see a fair one, " and, ' tis said, he nearly talked her to death on " Re-inforced Concrete. " However, although not so much of a fusser, he is mighty good at grabbing " Cab ' s " turkeys. He can tell you the first name of every turkey in the vicinity of College. Having roomed a while with " Posey " he has become quite a connoisseur of apples. His one regret is that his neck is not a mile long so that he could taste them all the way down.

" Get wise to his mug because it will again appear in history. Although he possesses a handsome countenance (see cut) yet— ih — he is a man of mys- tery. Last year it was rumored that some deep, dark secret enveloped his life, for he was often seen returning to College about umty-steen o ' clock p.m., with layers upon layers of mysterious red mud upon his shoes and carrying a red lantern. Now, however, curiosity is rife as to the meaning of certain mis- sives regularly delivered to him by the mails, from different places, yet invari- ably in the same handwriting. He has but one true love? — and only one. What ' s that? " Dat guy Creese. " Now that peculiar twinkle in his left eye is not a mote nor a beam — it ' s love- light. Someone mentioned Myron ' s name just as the ' ' look pleasant " man pulled the switch. Often " Jock ' s " sweet tenor voice may be heard wafted softly through the College halls. One might mistake it for a nail being slowly and painfully drawn across a piece of glass. In fact, it is rumored that audiences all over the country have offered him large sums to keep off the stage. Be that as it may, his natural unselfishness prevents his considering us as unworthy of the melodious, hog-killing, drink-driving vocal misfortunes. Such good old German ballads as " The River Shannon " and " Just a Sprig of Shamrock " seem to be his favorite victims. 40 THE 1912 REVEILLE Riverside, Md. Captain Gilbert B.

At ' h, mein Freind! Don ' t mind that map of Charles County up there in the corner. It isn ' t accurate. It couldn ' t be. That phiz was never kept in any particular position long enough at one time to make it recognizable on a sec- ond meeting. Except when distorted in sleep, it ' s always folded up in some species of laughter. Gilbert is the big- gest, kindest, happiest and most irre- sponsible " gink " that ever flopped into this old " brain-factory. " Deciding that horticulture and its accompaniments were best suited to his tastes, he was elected soon after his entrance to first vice presidency of " Becky ' s Apple Trust. " As a reward for studiousness and arduous attention to his classes he was promoted to the position of night-watchman of the cor- poration, which he has filled with honor, and a laundry-bag ever since. Posey is some military genius all right and his proficiency in " f acetiousness at drill " has merited hearty praise from the War Department, via " Commy. " He is seriously contemplating taking the exami- nation for second lieutenant in the U. S. Army, but we rather think it will be in the " Army of the Unemployed. " At odd times during the night, however, one may locate him by discovering the other end of this poetic gem: " Apples are my second nature, I ' ll tell you why it ' s so, Apples suit my frail digestion Just ' cause I loves ' em bo.

He is one of the future self-made men with a most sound policy in view, " Do not let studies interfere with the edu- cation. " " Hippo " has been known to try every institution of learning in the state of Maryland, after a short stay at M. A. C, and then decided to return to this domicile, as life was getting a little too speedy. Believe me he was some fast tub, but he is sobering down now and getting so dignified that we are beginning to think he will soon be eli- gible for the clergy (comparatively speaking) . He is especially attracted to the mili- tary department, as it gives extensive opportunities to try out his vocal at- tainments when singing out commands, which are expressed in the musical " Col-yume right. Mar-r-rch. " We don ' t know whether it was his musical abilities in giving commands or his military knowl- edge which made " Commy " give him the vacancy among the lieutenants but he is filling the bill as far as volume and mass is concerned. His majesty, however, is some slim prince in society. It is not his face but his shape that attracts the fairer sex and this being the year of romance where the proposal proposition is reversed we are afraid the nifty child will be wafted into the wilds of Southern Maryland. 42 THE 1912 REVEILLE .Hyattsville, Md.

It may not appear so at first glance but if the orchestra will softly play, " Ach der Lieber Augustine " the reader may see for himself that he has human charac- teristics. " Much may be made of a Dutchman, if he be caught young, " ' tis said, but as we didn ' t nab him until four years ago we cannot prophesy much as to his future. Coming as he does from Bla- densljurg, he is of a somewhat pugna- cious disposition; and, like other over- ripe eggs, must be handled with care. Although studying electrical engi- neering, " Sonny " really expects to be- come a pilot, as he has had considerable experience in guiding schooners over the bar. However we have our sus- picions as to the bar, also the schooners. This dapper little Frenchman is a very enthusiastic member of the A. I. E. E., and regularly attends all meet- ings, provided the invitation states that, cigars and refreshments ivill be served. " Sonny " isn ' t really a grind, but he laughs at fate and smiles at Myron (which is the same thing), with the desired effect at " exam " time. He attends recitations at intervals, but has never permitted the curriculum to seriously encroach upon his college course. As might be expected he is an optimist, and we might advise that, " For that tired feeling go to ' Sonny. ' " When the " powers that be " discovered that his studies were hurting his cheerful nature they obligingly cut out some of his studies. " Sonny " has requested us not to mention that he is not a grind, hence our silence on this subject. Still, " Dutch " is a pretty good skate and we w ould like to see him get along, so we ' ll ring off. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 43 .Washington, D. C. Senior Private Lucien H.

" Shush " at- tends the National Theater weekly, where he has a box seat in A row of the first floor (from the roof). Pudding- Head is our college critic on the shows we should not attend each week. " Shuse " is not much for athletics in general though h — for boxing. A ladies-man? — No, not much on the " skirts. " One night as he was dreaming I heard a mumble and then a sound followed by " I once loved you, Sally, " and from thence we have known the reasons why, — sad, sad, story. Handsome ! Keep quiet, don ' t mention it. Wliy he has a pair of baby-blue eyes set in a two by four block that would dazzle the whole world, and these are erected on a form that would make a Parisian model envy him. In the summer preceding " Shush ' s " Sophomore year he took a trip on the briny deep as a greaser, and as a greaser he did great credit to himself. 44 THE 1912 REVEILLE Captain A.

" He, like Mr. Davenport and Profes- sor B, believes that parents will show better sense if they send their children to study animal husbandry; for in this way they are made more competent in bettering the race of men, by following, and not by disobeying, the rules for cattle raising. The Governor of the State, I believe, has heard of this plan, and I am sure is making preparations for establishing a husband ' s department in which Claude will be among the foremost directors. Besides this he will also have a department for wives, both of which he will advertise far and wide as, " Wives and Husbands sent on thirty days ' trial. If not satisfactory return in good condition. " He says he wants a wife-department because he believes in man-suffrage ; that is to say he wants the poor down-trodden men to have equal rights with their oppressors.

" Old ' ' Chick-boom " is said to be one of the very few who claim to be women- proof, but we have our doubts, we have our doubts. When, or if, he graduates, " Bob " intends to enhance the productivity of the soil at Silver Springs by means of his chemical training, in which he excels. However we have a faint suspicion that " ward-heeling " is more to his fancy, and some day that he ' ll make a big " politish.

As king of the Senior Class he reigns supreme, and from his wishes in class matters there is no appeal. Verily was there never before so tyrannical an emperor, nor one who ruled his subjects with such an iron hand. Much wailing and gnashing of teeth were evoked among said subjects however, when " Bob " made his spectacular corner on 60-cent paper. As a social man " Bob " holds a prominent position.

" Good morning, gent ' men " is his hackneyed greeting as he fills the last vacant seat at the Senior Privates ' table, late as usual, just in time to see his milk and cereal taking the grand slide. Then Wilson gets real peeved, and his orational essays on the person- ality of any Boob who would steal a fellow ' s breakfast, would win a half dozen Pinkney White Medals. One thing that may be said in his favor, however, is his personal neatness. He shaves every week whether he needs it or not. Friday afternoon is the day set aside for the ceremony, in fact it has almost become a legal holiday with him. First he must borrow a razor, then a brush, then some soap and finally a mug. He does this systematically however, for he has a " brush, soap, mug and razor " roster that includes every member of the class. " Dope " is a not-to-be-despised patron of such an infant industry as the Wriglej ' Spearmint Company, and it is seldom that you will find him without a cud of that particular brand of " ladies " tobacco tucked away in the nether extremity of his jaw.

Yes, " Buck " is handsome, so much so that during the present year (leap year) he has had innumerable offers from the fair ones, but he says that girls are too trivial. We notice that there is one, however, whom he does not consider so. Just ask her roommate if the stream of missives she receives from College Park does not tend to place " Buck " and Ananias on the same family-tree. It is remarkable how a good start will help a fellow along. The girls gave him the start and " Commy " is kept busy trying to stop him. At- tending " reveille " is " Buck ' s " favor- ite pastime; and this more than any- thing else has been the chief reason for the high esteem in which the " Big Chief " now holds him. He made another decidedly good start in his Sophomore year by endeavoring to become a football hero. More to be depended upon than the mess-bugle was " Buck ' s " daily appearance on the gridiron, where he would do the " human door- mat " act for the rest of the team. This badly mussed his hair; so not finding a head-shave a good preventive, concluded that he had mistaken his calling and such martyrdom was not the glorious vision that he had at first seen. Cheer up, old boy, " They all look good when they ' re far away. " If he has a speaking acquaintance with a razor we doubt it, for he is usually well disguised as the bearded lady; but sometimes he borrows a clime and actually gets shaved. Some day he will buy a safety razor and stop " cutting up " but until then may he continue his facial landscape gardening undisturbed. 48 THE 1912 REVEILLE Junior Class Ode To the tune of " Stei?i Song " Here ' s to the Class of 1912, Here ' s to black and maroon; Here ' s to those who have done so well, Here ' s to the victory won; Here ' s to our classmates one and all.

And feels so great as though he ruled this democratic land, When he ' s a Sophomore at M. A. C. The Junior year secured for us a dignity of mein, A seriousness of thought which was anew. For we began to see that we were drawing near the goal ; The time was short for what we had to do. Juniors are diligent, they work and grind it through, For learning ' s path grows steeper every mile. And must not pause to rest, if he hopes to reach the top, He must be up and doing all the while. At last we reached that dizzy height which we so long had sought ; Wonder! of all wonders can it be? Those glorious beings we so long have worshiped from afar. At last a mighty Senior Class are " We. " We ' re finally one big class ; our banner to the winds, But truly all that glitters is not gold. Alas! the wondrous height while a Freshman shone so bright, Doth many a dark and dreary shadow hold. We had to work like beavers that we might achieve success, And keep the reputation of the class. But every lad among us all was cheered along the way, By noble ideals of his own sweet lass. The lassies were so sweet and coy and always true to us; Their presence filled our hearts with joy and glee. For they gaily spurred us onward to our victory, The victory won at old M. A. C. The year is almost over now; our sheep-skins are assured, And glancing back we shed one last sad tear. For the time has come to leave these friends we found so true ; These old gray walls have grown to us so dear. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 51 Ah, yes, these years have passed us l)y so very rapidly. Our college days are over all too soon; Yet we would linger here with these bright scenes to us so dear. If kindly fate would grant us such a boon. But Hush ! the bugle calls us now with sad and vain regrets, And we must sally forth to meet the foe. We ' ve climbed the hill of Knowledge now; we pause upon the top Before we go down to the field below. Now we go forth to spend our lives among the " Great Unknown, To ride abroad redressing human wrong; For every one of us will boldly stand up for the right.

M. 56 THE 1912 REVEILLE Junior Class History At last I was to realize the hope I had cherished so long. I was to fly. Hastily I donned an aviator ' s garb and took the seat beside my new found friend. Up, up, up we rose in an immense spiral until far in the distance we descried College Hill surmounted and pinnacled by the walls of M. A. C. Thither, through the middle-ways, we then directed our rapid flight. As we approached our destina- tion, however, atmospheric conditions began to change. The hot air arising from the chimneys (?) set up conflicting air currents and the cloud of foul gases that rose from the Chemical " Lab " caused complications in the carburetter. We had nearly landed when suddenly the motor stopped and the latter part of our descent was rather abrupt, involving some danger to our craft. " Come, " said I, " and we ' ll get some of the expert machinists of the Class of ' 13 to fix it. " " No this isn ' t a zoo. It ' s the machine shop. That noise wasn ' t made by a canary. " It was " Pink ' Healy singing. The tall animal over there in the polka- dot shirt, greasy khaki trousers and crownless derby hat is not a giraffe. That is ' Bob ' White, our high-handed grafter and step ladder eradicator. He has the legs of a stork and the wise head of an owl, but nevertheless is a ])ob-white. " Pink " is our electrician and one of " Commy ' s " pets. When not singing, talk- ing about New York or kidding some one he is busily engaged in perusing the latest news from " The Alley. " The dark-haired fellow is " Piggy " Hatton, student of physical culture and chief washer-maker. He says less, giggles more and reads more books than any other member of the class. " Upon being informed by the mechanics that it would require some time to prepare our machine, we decided to see more of the interesting sights and accordingly wended our way upstairs to " Doc " Tolly ' s lecture-room. " Good morning, boys. Good morning, boys. Pardon me for being late this morning. I had to stop in the office and get my stump. " This is what greets our ears as we enter. " Have one of my cigars, Professor, " this from " Perce " Trax, he with the sar- castic grin. " Perce " is our business-man and great logician, especially when he gets into an argument with " Commy " about " sticks. " He always carries the College Regulations in his pocket and marches the section in a very military (?) manner. " Now Mr. Davis, I ' ll begin with you. " That is " Peck " with the wisdom of Solomon, the shrewdness of a Yankee Jew, and the ready information of a reference book. He can sling railways, spiel Calculus Formulae and drop concrete to " Doc ' s " complete satisfaction. In the meantime he slings a little ink at Roland Avenue, much to the gratification of — . MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 57 " What I don ' t see is this. How do you get that? " Listen! Cadet Trimhal is speaking. " Socks, " the chief kiclder condition- accumulator, explanation-writer, recHning-rodman and consulting engineer of the class on " Izzy. " " Shut up, Blankman. I never did like you. " " Hurrah for Trimble. " That last remark was by " Isador " Blankman in reply to " Sock ' s " sarcasm. Yes, he is a Hebrew and some shrewd fellow. " Doc " claims him as one of " his boys. " He is frequently the storm center of chalky-tornadoes w4iich disturb the hitherto peaceful calm of the drawing-room. Lately he has l ecome very artistic. House- painting seems to be his specialty. Yes; that is his brother. He entered our ranks just this year and immediatel.y was christened " Aint-a-dore " Blankman. He has since established himself as the Calculus-fiend, German reference book, philosopher and adviser of the class. The lost stations seem to be an important factor in " Ainty ' s " mind. " Professor, I ' m on duty today. " Eddy Powell, ears inflamed and neck swathed in bandages has arrived at last. That promotion of his nearly proved fatal. Eddy is very religious. He sings much and designs churches. At present he is busy tackling one such design, Init we greatly fear that he will convert it into a nickelodeon before he finishes. Those two cadets punching each other with lead pencils are Hull and Merrick. " Bill " is " Sock ' s " chief adviser and pardner, while " Zeke " is one of " Doc ' s " favor- ites. The little blind god seems to have him well under control. Now we ' ll go over to the " Chem Lab " and see what is making all this unpleasant odor. Yes, here they are. That chubby Scotchman who is giving one of the Seniors a warm shower from his wash-bottle is " Nebby, " one of this year ' s accessions. He has proved himself quite valuable in keeping the " Lab " clear of Seniors. Nesbit is making rapid progress and has already discovered a method of analysis by means of which he has discovered 113 per cent iron in iron wire. The red-haired angel-faced little fellow who just came out of the office is May- field. Yes, " Angel " is another of our ambitious chemists. See how critically he eyes the bottle of nasty looking stuff he has there. He ' ll tell you in a few minutes exactly what is in it. Now watch him get busy with a pump and a filter. " First down and ten yards to go. Whoa, Steady Now! " Don ' t be frightened, that is only Bryon Morse precipitating the metals of Group I. Look out! he ' s going to pour some more acid in that seething solution he has there. There goes the bottom out of his test tube It ' s a toss between him and Nitz as to which one can break the most apparatus. Byron has us all at his mercy when it comes to giving spiels on the homologous series. " An homologous series is one in which all the members are homologous. " A heart smasher? You bet he is. 58 THE 1912 REVEILLE " Nitz? " That is Mr. Greenboig, the pmk-whiskered, blue-blooded gentleman from New York and one of us animal husbandry students. When not talking about some of the millionaires of New York, Greenberg is usually smashing glass or apply- ing acids to his face in a vain effort to get rid of his red whiskers, the growth of which is a great annoyance to the " Big Chief. " See that letter in his pocket? Yes, one of the sweet-scented kind. Oh, you need not wory about " Chevy " Towers. He ' ll wake up after he has taken his little nap and cut that Ca determination short by throwing all of the AI2O3 and Si02 in the sink. He doesn ' t say much but what he doesn ' t know about chickens would fill a small book. Some pedestrian received a ducking ! I just saw " Pop " Koehler go to the window with 500 cc. of water. Pop is one of our athletes. See, he has an " M " and two stars on his sweater. Notice the letter he has in his book. Oh, you Chambersburg! The little Dutchman on his left is Bierman, commonly called " Dutch. " He is noted for being the best-natured man in the class. Notice his broad grin. Now he is going to treat " Pete " Ames to a little distilled HoO. Yes; Peter is our Color(ed) Sergeant. Doesn ' t he have a military bearing? Reminds you of Napoleon, he ' s so different. He pretends to be looking at the pre- cipitate he has in that test-tube which he is holding up to the light Imt it is only an excuse to catch a glimpse at the little house down by the wood. You bet he ' s a wind splitter on chemistry notes. Takes them down at the rate of about 200 (letters) per by occasionally asking about what has gone before. Who on earth is stirring up all of that fog? It ' s " Bob " Robinson to be sure. Whenever atmospheric conditions become intolerable he is generally to blame. Poor " Bob " gets the raw end of the deal when " Doc Mack " makes his tour of inspection, but it doesn ' t interfere with his happiness in the least. Listen at that original parody of his on " Day Dreams. " Here comes " Doc Mack " with a hammer and a handful of nails. That means all the windows will be nailed down. It smells foul enough in here now. I suppose we had better leave. Upon leaving the Chemical Building whom should we spy but " Bill " White just coming out of Science Hall. " Hello, ' Bill; ' how did you get along with you bugology lesson? " " Pretty good. You know fellows if you had something like this to study you could talk about work. " This is his answer as he pulls a large text-book from under his arm. He has always had much trouble in filling his social engagements and studying at the same time. When he graduates he will have completed the widest course in Bug- ology and " Work-Evasion " in the college. The bunch following " Becky " is going down to the greenhouse to pack fruit in boxes (?). We ' ll follow them. The happy-go-lucky fellow packing those apples away so snugly in the box is " Phoebo " Binder. His good looking friend is Augustus. Both are athletes and MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 59 have made enviable records. Gus is much concerned about Georgetown at the present time. We ' ll see more of them later. The dark-haired chap is " Happy " Barnes. He keeps us posted on all matters pertaining to the Experiment Station. Now the tall intellectual gentleman is Brinn of Washington, D. C., diplomat and representative from Panama. He is never more delighted than when engaged in photographing the ladies. He is with- out a doubt the best social man of the section with the single exception of Orlando Rideout. Orlando is the social man of the class and never fails to be on hand with his fair queen at every Rossburg. His social affairs, however, do not in the least interfere with his close application to scholastic work. " Grand Father " standing yonder by the bunch is Sergeant Smedley of " C " Company. He is an official milk-tester and a great favorite of " Grasshopper. " He and " Tolly " often spend the greater part of a period discussing the topography of Hartford County much to the pleasure of the remainder of the class. The little affair he has in his hand isn ' t a chess board, it ' s one of his new lightning feed- calculators. Of course you will find Hillegeist, more widely known as " Hilly, " somewhere near by. He holds and draws salaries from the following positions: big chief of mess hall, dancing hall musician, pianist at chapel exercises, milk tester, all around alarm clock on Buzzard ' s Roost, Professor Hibbard ' s accountant and champion theme writer. Oh, that ' s Scammell, often dubbed Scammilicus, who is plying " Becky " with questions. He is now greatly wrought up over a nut-growing proposition. Don ' t form a bad opinion of " Bill " Frere and " Tommy " Williams for putting those apples under their shirts. Yes, I see they have about a peck already but that makes no difference. Those apples are for experimental purposes. " Bill " will soon discover which variety aids him most in beating the " list " and accordingly recommend it to all fellow sufferers. " Our aeroplane is ready now. We ' ll have to go. " A moment later we were aloft again; this time above the athletic field. " It must be a critical stage in the game for I hear " Bob " Robinson yelling as if he would split his throat. " Look at ' Pop ' Keohler going through the line. There goes ' Phoebo ' down the field with the ball like a streak of lightning. Wasn ' t that a grand tackle by ' Gus? ' " " Sure they— " Right here something went wrong. In my enthusiasm over the game I forgot all else and lost control of the machine which now began to capsize. Instinctively I grasped an upright post near me and held on with all my might. Oh! what a sensation of horror took hold of me ! Suddenly everything vanished and I awoke to find myself desperately clinging to the bedpost. J. S.

There ' s nothing wrong in it, just a little rat meeting in No. 4, New Barracks, and you accidentally arrived in the midst of it. If you will stay awhile you may see and hear a few things that will prove to be entertaining. Following three quick raps, the door is slowly opened and you behold a blind- folded and very much excited chap being jostled from the rear by two sturdy slal) artists. Evidently he is a great friend of the Sophs, for he has been graciously reserved to be the last victim. Worch — " Easy fellows, he looks delicate. " Cosier— " Let ' s kill him. " Victim — " I never done nuthin ' . " Quickly the lights are turned out, and although we are completely in ignorance of what is the form of this special brand of amusement, j et from the pleas and threats we conclude that the gentleman under consideration is having a rare time. Almost as quickly the lights flare up and all is order again. Having become so much interested in the proceedings, we will stay for the business end of this meeting. The Sophs always go by their motto — " Pleasure before busi- ness. " You and I will get into a corner of the room where we can take it all in without being seen. President Worch — " All right, fellows, come to order. " (This is followed by ten minutes of general rough-house.) Worch — " Order! Come on, fellows! Order!! Order!!! (It almost gets quiet.) Worch — " Fellows, I ' ve called this meeting tonight to discuss the new summer uniform. You know that last year ' s uniform was punk. We want olive-drab this year.

" Green — " Oh, Raspy, you ought to have been along on that two thousand dollar trip to Seattle a couple years ago. Believe me, Caroline, it was some rich. " Rasmussen ' — " Oh, go to ! You never saw the Eastern Shore, much less Seattle. " Jeff — " Mr. President, I move we adjourn. " President — " You ' ve heard Mr. Jeff ' s motion. Is there any second? " Several — " Let ' s go! " President — " The meeting is adjourned. " From the two foregoing little incidents you can form a general idea how we spent our Sophomore year at this institution. You will note that in our actions we were not so dignified and serious as a church congregation would be; but we enjoyed our- selves as only Sophomores could, and hereafter we will always look back on this year as one of the most pleasant in all our lives.

Peter Showell TULL 72 THE 1912 REVEILLE History of the Class of 1915 Freshmen = those in the rudiments of knowledge In September of 1911 about fifty " ambitious, " " intelligent, " and " determined " fellows landed at M. A. C. from practically all parts of the globe and entered the Freshman Class, either upon presentation of a certificate from some reputable school, or by bluff. Of this number, about twenty were " old-boys " of the Sub- Freshman Class of 1910, and the remaining thirty were " rats. " It is needless to state that the " old-boys " were much gratified to have so many new fellows enter the class. The Freshman Class at present has an enrollment of forty-three regular students — the largest class inthe college, and will undoubtedly compare very favorably in num- ber and in every possible manner to any Freshman Class in the state of Maryland. Our Freshman officers were elected the latter part of our Sub-Freshman year. A class-meeting was called soon after we got established at M. A. C. What was the result? We were all jammed in one small room, the thermometer was registering about 100 degrees and the famous Piedmont was much in evidence. Regardless of the above-named abnormal conditions we transacted our business in a very desirable manner. Our " rats " no doubt thought that this meeting was called in order that the " old-boys " might show them a few stunts with the " broomstick and " bayo- net, " but such was not the case on this occasion. Soon " 15 " in the colors of blue and gold was being worn by every member of the class. From the beginning of the year to Thanksgiving the Freshman Class held its own. The " Sophs " were on very good terms with our class from the start — our class being somewhat the larger, we naturally anticipated peace. The Thanksgiving holidays came and passed so quickly that we remember only two things about it — we departed from college on Wednesday — we returned to college on Sunday. Of course, there were a few that were " unfortunate, " having been taken ill suddenly and could not return on time. Also, those who wandered to the Eastern " Sho " and Southern Maryland straggled in any time between a week and ten days; depending upon their " pull " with " Commy " and the number of boats that traverse the waters between their place of departure and Baltimore or Washington. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 73 The period between our Thanksgiving holidays and Christmas was short and quiet. Home-sickness, romantic thoughts, and all other things that follow a holi- day did not tarry long in the hearts of our fellows. We realized that the first term exams were fast approaching, and we all needed a ? " e " brushing up " on our subjects. Some members of the class, by sitting up late, and getting up early, passed their exams creditably — others retired early, arose late, and " flunked " terribly. Such was the result of our first term examinations. From the beginning of our Christmas holidays till the opening of college on Janu- ary 2d, we know but little about our fellows, individually or collectively. If time and space permitted, however, no doubt some interesting facts could be cited by an examination of our first theme in January, entitled " My Christmas Holidays. " Incidentally we might say that our themes are always filled with " human interest " and are usually the recipients of " comment " and other things when made public. Thus far the Freshman Class has manifested much interest in making every branch of M. A. C. ' s athletics a success. On the gridiron, track, and other fall and winter sports, our class has been represented. And now, that the baseball and lacrosse season is approaching, we hope, and believe that our class will be repre- sented in these manly sports. Members of this class are pursuing various courses of study. The identification of the smallest " unknown " protoplasmic substance; the maintenance of a large stock farm on the Isthmus of Panama; the manner of perfecting and propagating the most minute of our plants ; the ability to recognize and give name to any seed produced in our Union; to be able to cause two chemicals to combine, when the same is impossible; to be able to survey the boundaries of our Great Pacific and compute its capacity; to plan, or design a locomotive that can run from Washington to Baltimore (40 miles) in twenty-five minutes and not exceed a mile per minute ; and to be able to construct a dynamo that will electrocute a person, by simply look- ing at it — these are a few of the " ordinary " ideals of the member of the Class of 1915. We are all looking forward with great pleasure to that privileged class — THE SOPHOMORE, when our long anticipated plans may be converted into realization. Let each one strive with all his might to do his duty, and the success achieved will ultimately redound to the honor and glory of the Class of 1915. A. W. M., Historian.

' ' The knife was still — the surgeon bore The shattered arm away; Upon his bed, in painless sleep, The noble hero lay. He woke, but saw the vacant place Where limb of his had lain. Then faintly spoke: " O let me see My strong right arm again ! " Good-by, old arm! " the soldier said. As he clasped the fingers cold ; And down his pale but manly cheeks The tear-drops gently rolled; " My strong right arm, no deed of yours Now gives me cause to sigh; But it ' s hard to part such trusty friends- Good-by, old arm! good-by " " You ' ve served me well these many j ' ears, In sunlight and in shade; But, comrade, we have done with war — Let dreams of glory fade. You ' ll never more my saber swing In battle fierce and hot; You ' ll never bear another flag, Or fire another shot. " I do not mourn to lose you now. For home and native land; Oh ! proud am I to give my mite For freedom pure and grand! Thank God! no selfish thought is mine, While here I bleeding lie. Bear, bear it tenderly away — Good-by, old arm! good-by. " 80 THE 1912 REVEILLE Hymn of Battle No more the life inert, no more the things to be! Today with all its fight and flame, its battle clang, for me! Today, with all its freshening flood of triumph and of trust Above the buried yesterdays of doubting and of dust. Today, today — the battle calls, And through the dark to light; For all is one long struggle, dear, To try to live life right! No more the listless apathy, no more the choice to wait! Today the bugles on the hills, the war steeds at the gate ! Today the levelled lance, and men, and red blood in the veins, And one wild burst along the hills, and give the steed the reins. Today, today! Not yesteryear! Not shadows and not dread; But life along the gleaming line. And one more fight ahead. No more the reticence to lead, no more the holding back! Today the marching of the throng along the roaring track! The thunder of a thousand storms, the lightning and the rain, And one strife more and one strong heart and no lips to complain Today, today! The cry is forth! The wind is on the sea. And where the clang of battle leads. Thank God life leadeth me! No more the stale and profitless, no more the rest and dream! No more the routine and the rut, but now the freshening gleam ! The lance in my own hand to lead, the venture mine to know, The sword above my head, the string drawn taut upon the bow. Today, today! The battle now. The peace beyond the night — When we have won the struggle, dear. For life, for love, for right. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 81 The Military Department The United States government has found it very desirable to maintain depart- ments of military training in all the educational institutions, towards whose support it contributes financially each year. Accordingly it has made this a part of the requirements to be al)le to enjoy such contributions. Our military policy must of necessity be a very weak one in comparison with other great nations of the world. This is largely due to a spirit of commercialism that has sprung up during the prosperous time which we have been enjoying; and also to the fact that the United States is not a military nation now, and never has been one. It has been our policy to maintain a very small standing army, and to rely upon citizen soldiery in times of war. Hence the more military training that can be given our citizens in time of peace, the better shall we, as a nation, be pre- pared when war does come upon us; and the less time it will take to drill and ecjuip bodies of troops fit to take the field in active campaign against a highly trained foe. The War Department recognizes the value of the training given to the graduates of these institutions, and is now engaged in formulating a plan, whereby graduates may be induced to enter the National Guard. It has called upon all officers detailed as military instructors, for written recommendations, as to ways which would help to induce such graduates to give their service to the National Guard. Each year the names of graduates who have shown ability and interest are forwarded to the War Department. In addition to this, the cadet standing the highest in the military department of a distinguished institution is each year given a chance to compete for a commission in the United States Army. LIFE, BY HECK, AT OLD STUMP NECK MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 83 Trip to Stump Neck A cool refreshing breeze was stirring, which was just strong enough to sway the grass and early flowers to and fro, like Chief Engineer Grace ' s cat-boat when left to the mercy of the wind and waves of the fierce and vicious Chesapeake; and the odors arising from the honey locust, augmented by the sweet perfume of the wild honeysuckle, were by no means nauseating to one who was familiar with the brand of Toilet Powder for sale at Captain Posey ' s old stand, (Colgate ' s " Dactylis. " (Take a deep breath, and pause for five minutes.) Slowly, one by one, " Commy " M. A. C ' aesar, and all the little Caesars, assembled on the parade ground with their rifles, bandeliers and blanket roll; to be subjected to an informal inspection for small necessary articles, such as a manicuring set, shoe-horn, tooth-brush, etcetera. A few minutes later a long column of Infantry could be seen gradually but diligently working its way towards the car-station; where special cars were waiting to deliver us C. 0. D. at the Navy Yards in Wash- ington. From here one of Uncle Sam ' s tugs was used to convey us down the river. Gradually we vanished from Washington, but Alexandria was ready with out- stretched arms to receive us into her bosom of still water. Likewise were the other points of importance along the Potomac. We were duly received by the marines at Stump Neck with a salute; which con- sisted of three volleys from their Catling guns fired over the mast of the tug. Whether it was meant as courtesy or not is an unanswered question. However we found our camping ground in excellent condition, with the tents already pitched. Immediately after arriving the bugler sounded that old melodious tune, and gee! how glad we were to have our keen appetites satisfied with an al)undant supply of palatable and delicious food (?). The night was spent in a state of dread uneasiness, for a small bandit was prowl- ing around camp. The marine officer threatened to have all the outlaws shot at day-break, and " Sox " Trimble was sentenced to be burnt at the stake. Three yards of canvas and six feet of bamboo constituted our beds, and a mass of sore-heads was precipitated the following morning. Firing from the 200, 300 and 500 yard-lines was the schedule for the following five days. Bathing in the deeps of the Potomac was greatly enjoyed in the eve- nings; when not strolling around over Charles County to get aglimpseof thesponsor for the future battalion. THIS IS BLISS MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 85 June Encamvment " Say ' Febe what are those white things up there on the hill? I never saw any- thing like that before in Prince George County. " " Oh, you poor Mutt! That ' s what they call Camp Silvester. " Camp Silvester was named in honor of the " Big Chief, " and everybody was welcomed into the Comanche ' s Camp — provided they came after breakfast, brought ' long their lunch, and left before supper time. We were taught these courtesies long before our dreams of camping were materialized. Pitching tents was the first exertion for the privates, after arriving at the proposed camping grounds. Scarcely had we become settled and acquainted with our cozy tents, when we were called " to arms " to display our ability at evening dress parade, before an interesting audience of co-eds in the bleachers. The same pleasures were granted each evening for the benefit of our honored guests. Finally the morning for the competitive company drill arrived, and of course each company was sure to win. Company ' ' C " was victorious; but " B " was close behind. Some high-ranking private thoughtlessly shot a " snipe " into the middle of the street, for which a few points were deducted. Monday night the camp-fires were kept burning low, as a token of love for our dear old camping grounds, from which we would soon take our sad departure. At last Tuesday came, and we concluded that life on " The Knob " was too strenu- ous, and we would love to be back in the barracks. So before night-fall " Commy " issued General Order No. 23 — and we promptly responded. 86 THE 1912 REVEILLE Miss E. Louise Cobey Washington, D. C.

A. C. I heard the bugles blow the calls The old boy loves to hear; I heard the sacred white-washed walls Re-echo, cheer on cheer. I saw the companies stretching out In regimental line; I heard the sergeant major shout In accents soft and fine. I watched the band march to and fro, And heard distinct and clear The self-same airs that long ago Our fathers used to hear. But best of all, did not stand Among the boys in gray, No rifle butt was in my hand, I did not drill that daj ' . A khaki uniform I wore And held my head up high gave the orders to them, for The commandant was I. He wore a suit of army gray As I could plainly see, And drilled a rear rank private, too, In my own company. I watched him closely as he stood. To see what I could see; He turned his head (I hoped he would) A half of one degree. Then down the line I quickly tore, A frown upon my brow; Poor Commy looked a trifle sore — I clearly see him now. I grabbed him firmly by the chin And looked him in the eye. Said I, " I ' ll teach you discipline Or know the reason why. " " Straight to the front your face must be Straight to the front I say; No more such movement let me see Another time this day. " Yes, I was commandant and told AH old boys what to do While Commy had a gun to hold And wore a bayonet, too. I marched back to my post again All smiling at my joke. I turned to give command, and then- Alas, I then awoke. Literary Societies Officers of Morrill Literary Society F. E. Anderson Presiderit G. B. Posey Vice-President J. R. Reichard Secretary C. M.

To say that they have achieved success is but mildly to express the way in which they carried out the work they had planned. At the weekly meetings each society has given its men the opportunity and encouragement necessary to a successful orator, debater, and elocutionist; so that the result has been the spirited and instruc- tive ente rtainment coincident with such gatherings. Many and broad subjects have been the themes of our aspirant debaters. The orators have thrilled us with their startling and vastly deep declamations, while the entertainment afforded us by the elocutionists has been a most pleasant release from the dullness of winter life. Ever since their infancy these two societies, though fostered by the students collectively, each year await the chance to match their wits; so when the annual debate between the Morrill and New Mercer is called, as the finale to the scholastic year, we will again hear the masterful pleadings of their best representatives. 112 THE 1912 REVEILLE The Dance (A la Bacon as a j oung man; if he ever was one.) The dance is a delight to the young to partake of, to the old to behold, and to those between to gossip over. It promoteth sociabilities and restoreth the balance of overworked minds. Of all sensations it is the most infectious, that your arm be around a lady in the maze of the dance; especially if she be youthful, and of a lis- somness. There be two considerations : what should be sought after in choosing the partner; and what should be guarded against, the choice having been made. The ecstasy of the dance is motion, therefore let the lady be accomplished. Choose not the halt nor the lame, and above all beware the novice. The lady should not be of greater height than the man, neither doth one of plump bosom consort to advantage with a man of small chest. The couple being matched, there be certain wise precautions. Too much con- verse spoileth the rythmn; therefore if the lady be one of many words, let the dance be fast that she have little breath: or if again it be discovered too late that she keepeth not to the music then badinage is the only physic to relieve the situation; which may be aided by visiting the punch bowl, and that with a frequency. If she hath the sinuous waist, the modest bodice, the throat of velvet smoothness, confiding eyes, and a wicked mouth, and a fragrance emanating from the hair, and withal moveth her limbs in perfect accord with the music and her partner as well, then is the dance at its perfection, verily an Elysian tonic to the soul. These latter allurements be the ta meteora of Aristophanes — the things transcen- dental that appeal to all, but are to be obtained by the connoisseur alone. Be not bold; but be not faint of heart either. A lady, be she not insipid, favoreth whoso exhibiteth assurance tempered with discretion.

I was dreaming of her when it woke me. Of her eyes of the deepest brown; Her teeth and her smile that entranced me, Her skin white and soft as the down. I had dreamed of the myriad dances I had spent with the vision fair; Of her grace, of her lightness in gliding, Of her voice and her rippling hair. How at last we had tired of dancing. And had sought a safe nook, where I told How I loved her and worshiped her always. Her ways and her heart of pure gold. Then I turned on my fevered pillow, And closed my eyes as in pain ; To banish the sights around me, And float to her once again. But alas the Fates were against me, The gun was the noise I had heard. Announcing the dawn as its herald. As swift as the wings of a bird. Then the Reveille Squad was upon me, My dreams of my love were no more. When Burrier, Grace and Warfield Deposited me on the floor. So I dreamed no more of my maiden, For the Reveille Squad I abhor; And now I must get up at first call Or be sure to be dumped on the floor. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 115 Y. M. C. A. W. M. McBride President F. E. Anderson Vice-President E. V. Benson Secretary and Treasurer The letters Y. M. C. A. stand for perhaps more than many of us think. Youth manhood, Christianity and associations are all things very near and dear to us. They are subjects of which we never tire and upon which we love to ponder. The Association in this institution has endeavored to bring its members to a fuller appreci- ation of the vigor, the vim and the enthusiasm of youth ; the integrity of sterling manhood, and the pleasures, advantages and protections afforded by Christian associations and fellowships. It has aimed to inculcate the principles of right living, and to set up higher and loftier ideals among the students. The development of body, mind and soul have been its concern, but highest and most important, the soul. Our associations has ever striven for the betterment of the moral and spiritual welfare, not only of its members, but of every cadet who enters the walls of M. A. C. We have taken upon ourselves the task of creating, here amidst the rush and hurry of college life, something which will approximate that home environment and atmos- phere which nearly every young man misses and yearns for when he leaves home and comes to college. By a systematic and regular reading of the Bible, by study, and reflection upon such lives as those of Christ and St. Paul, we have endeavored to keep vivid in our minds those precepts learned at our mother ' s knee. To this end about eighty-seven cadets have entered classes this year and have been doing splendid work which cannot help but bear fruit in later years. Not satisfied with a study of the Bible, they have become awakened to the great problem of mis- sion work, and as a result we have a class studying, " The unoccupied fields of Africa and Asia. " This is the first year that a mission study class has been conducted and is a step forward which is very gratifying. The delegates who went to Western Maryland College to the Joint Convention of the Y. W. C. A. and Y. M. C. A. of the State, came back with many new ideas on mission work and will doubtless put them in practice. 116 THE 1912 REVEILLE Triangle Staff M. W. McBride, ' 12 Editor M. E.

Trax, ' 13 Business Manager S. Blankeman, ' 13 Assistant Business Manager C. M. White, ' 13 Assistant Business Manager The Triangle This institution of our College was started in the fall of 1909. At first there was some doubt as to the success of the paper, but all fears however speedily vanished after the first two or three issues had been run off. Several radical changes have been made since the first publication; it it first being issued monthly and then increased to a bi-monthly journal, because of the demand for the news matter i contained. Originally the Triangle had been under the direct management of the Senior Class. This however brought forth trouble between the Triangle and the Reveille, so a change of policy was instituted this year. It was turned over to the Junior Class, the Editor-in-chief alone to be a member of the Senior Class. Editor McBride has contributed largely to the success of the paper, and his editorials have done much to make the paper what it is. The work of the Asso- ciate Editors has also been commendable in every respect. Under this year ' s management the financial success of the Triangle has passed our most sanguine expectations. The list of subscribers has increased far beyond that of the preceding years. Thus the Triangle has closed the third year, the real test year, of its life. May the success won by such hard efforts this year be continued in future years. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 117 TRIANGLE BOARD I t U f MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 119 Athletic Association R. L.

O ' CoNOR, Manager ( C ' ' osse E. E. Powell, Captain W.R.WARTHEN,Manager ' E. E. Powell, Captain ' ' Ship ' ' Shipley There are few who can show this youngster anything about athletics. He seems to be at home in every sport. Ship is a born leader. In the college year ' 10- ' 11 he had the distinction of being captain of three athletic teams — football, basketball and baseball. While excellent in all, he shines especially in foot- ball, being designated, " AU- Alaryland " quarterback in 1910. Exceedingly aggressive and absolutely fearless. Ship is one of the most respected men in this section on the gridiron. He is a natural general, and has the art of out-guessing the other fellow down to an almost uncanny degree. ' ' Biir ' Kemp Bill is certainly worthy of the " All-Maryland " half-back title, for during his three years in the mole-skins has always played a rattling fine game. During the Soph Year and as Captain in the Junior Year, Kemp was placed at end and some- times at tackle; but during the latter part of this season was shifted to half-back. It was there that Bill has done his best work. In the Western Maryland game this fall his line-plung- ing was exceptionally noteworthy, being greatly instrumental in our laying their colors low. Against Gallaudet when each team was fighting for inches, he tore off several plunges for ysrds at a time. 120 MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 121 " Hoff ' Hoffecker In Hoffecker, M. A. C. ' s football team will have a gallant leader for 1912. Playing the left-half back position, " Hoff " has caused many a team ' s colors to be lowered in the dust and many lines have crumbled away before his vicious attacks. The long run made by him against the " Mutes, " thereby winning the most hard fought battle on M. A. C. ' s gridiron, is a feat that every M. A. C. student will long remember; and from the " antics " made by the " Dummies, " he will always be a man dreaded by them. We wish " Hoff " and his fellow warriors every success, and may they be victorious in the season of 1912. ' ' Keg ' ' Miidd Mudd — a voluminous stratum of the adhesive type — has for the past three years proved to be an impenetrable bar- rier to M. A. C. ' s gridiron opponents. Time and time again when Western Maryland, Hopkins and St. John ' s found each attempt to advance of no avail, it was due to their inability to wade through this quagmire. Whatever may have been the under- lying principle of Keg ' s success its cause was second only to the effect in the eyes of his team-mates. We fear that some time will elapse before Maryland will be able to replace the sturdy right tackle now leaving us. ' ' Gee Bee ' ' Posey We insist that Posey is the best tackle that M. A. C. has ever produced, and that he has no superior in Maryland College circles today. True, he was not given that honor by the news- papers, for he possessed not the " pull that counts, " nor did his true gentlemanly modesty permit him to cultivate it. Weighing 180 pounds, powerfully built, abundantly blessed with football acumen and enthusiasm, this nervy player has performed feats during his four years on the eleven that have proved his team ' s salvation on more than one critical occasion. It will be years before M. A. C. will be able to boast of his equal. 122 THE 19 12 REVEILLE ' ' Duke ' ' Duckett Duckett, although he hails from Bladensburg, has been one of the shining stars during his four years at M. A. C. Having obtained a great distinction and a wide reputation on the track, " Duke " cast his lot in football. He soon found a place in the back field, and the way he skirted the ends were sights worth witnessing. The opposing ends could never get near enough to make a tackle, but always had to be content with the dust from this fleet-footed star. Ordinarily " Duke " has a slow sleepy movement, but when it comes to the track and gridiron, his name will go down in ' SI. A. C. annals as one of the fastest men ever produced here. ' ' Phebo ' ' Binder Binder, an unknown quantity at first, soon showed that he had seen a foot-ball game in Atlantic City. Short and stubby in stature, the full-back position was easily secured by him. With head ducked and body doubled up, he was a terror to opposing linemen and on numerous occasions has gained the required three or five yards. Quick as a flash? with the speed of a cannon ball, he has run back many punts with every opposing man lugging at him. With us but two years; he has won a place in every M. A. C. student ' s heart and no doubt he will show some university good football men are turned out at M. A. C. H O o In athletics, as well as in every other contest in life, to win shows prowess to accept the result in true sportsman-like spirit whether victory or defeat, shows manhood. And while the means to win may be obtained in many different ways, either secret or open, the proper acceptance of the result can be obtained only when it is realized that the benefits of a sport are derived, not from the winning, but from the playing. And while our football team did not win some contests which we had hoped to carry off, yet the men played a clean hard game throughout the season and the final scores of the eight games showed three victories, three defeats, and two tie scores. The first game was played against Richmond College at Richmond on September 30 and resulted in a tie, neither team being able to cross the goal-line. Next we met Fredericksburg College at Fredericksburg and beat them 5 to 0. In the Hop- kins game we had our opponents at our mercy, but for a fumbled ball which a Hopkins man scooped up and carried for a touchdown, thus beating us 6 to 3. Then we had a series of reverses, Catholic University tied us 6 to 6, St. Johns beat us 27 to 0, and Washington College scored 17 points to our 6. But our men showed their mettle when they came back and in the next game did what no other team in the State could do, beat Western Maryland 6 to 0. The closing game of the season was a hard fought one with Gallaudet in which we again came out victors 6 to 2. Between manj of the individual players there was little room for selection for each played his position well; but mention might be made of Captain Shipley whose work at quarter placed him in a position second to that of no man in the State. 124 MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 125 Football Season of 1911 H.

Lednum succeeded Shipley as captain, when the latter left College, and has proved a wise choice in every par- ticular. His gingery, " Kim on l)iby, " Lednumese for " Come on baby, " keeps things on the hop all through the game. Being from the land of Herzog and Baker, Pete faith- fully produces the nifty antics of the former around the hot region and smacks " em Avhere they ain ' t " in the proved home -run style of latter. ' ' ' Curley ' ' Lednum In Lednum we have an example of what constant plugging will do. Curley won his place on the ' Varsity last season by the work he had done while with the scrubs during his Soph Year, and by the hard plugging during the early part of last spring. And once on the college team he has decided to stay. His fielding is always good, but it is at the bat where he has displayed his true form, and timely hitting seems to be his forte. Slow but sure he is constantly in the game, and the race between the brothers for batting honors is alwavs a keen one. 126 These are not excuses; these are facts. ' Starting the season with a strong line-up, we have suffered such irreparable losses that our visions of a successful season have well nigh disappeared. But the old M. A. C. fighting spirit prevails, and we are going to fight to the last ditch. In the first place, Duckett, one of our three star twirlers, was compelled to quit the game soon after practice began, on account of the pressure of scholastic work. Next Shipley, captain and star, left after our first game to join the Worcester, New England League Team. Then little " Reds " Ritter, our peppery manipulator of the half-way station, acquired a twisted knee that threatens to keep him out of the game for the rest of the season. And now, Donn, the Eastern High School boy who made good as catcher right off the handle, has been compelled to leave College on the eve of our first St. John ' s contest. Likewise Sam Edmonson, our popular and efficient coach, has been called by his team for the 1912 campaign. H owever Captain " Pete " Lednum is a strenuous worker, and if Lady Fortune permits the present combination to remain intact long enough to learn to play together, we will show ' em something yet. For in Hoffecker and Smith we have a brace of Flingers mighty hard to beat; and besides, of the new players, Hatton, Knode Firor, Binder, and Hook, have shown their worth. 128 MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 129 Baseball Season of 1912 R.

And from his work during the last three years we see our predictions realized. In his Soph Year Bill won his " M " by performances in the quarter mile, and the next year saw him holding a much-coveted position on the College Relay. He also managed the track squad that year, and by his good work on the cinder path was elected captain for this season. During the indoor season just closed, Kemp has low- ered several track records in Washington; and in the National Guard Meet, tied for individual honors with Eller of Georgetown. In our own Intercollegiate Track Meet Bid carried off individual honors with 14 points; first in the mile and the 880 yard run, and second in both the quarter- mile and l)road jump. ' Gus ' ' Augustus Gus won his place on the College Relay during the latter part of last season; and was one of the four that took second place at the University of Pennsylvania Relay Carnival in April, 1911. Possessing good speed and a fair amount of stamina, Gus is a hard man to beat when in good trim. His per- formances in the individual events has also been of a good quality, and at the half-mile and mile can do as well as in the quarter. He took second in the mile last year at M. A. C. ' s Inter-Collegiate Track Meet, being beaten out by inches by Woodward of St. John ' s. 132 THE 1912 REVEILLE Track With the return of warm weather the track men have begmi to get in the much needed outdoor training, in preparation for the University of Pennsylvania Relay Carnival; and also for our own outdoor Meet for the Collegiate Championship of the State. Before prophesying what we will do this spring, however, let us look back over what our team has done during the winter, in order that we may more accurately judge our chances for success this season. In February our relay team was beaten in the Fifth Regiment-Hopkins ' Meet, by St. John ' s College. This was the first time in the last four years that M. A. C. has been defeated on a local track, and in this contest we gave the victors such a hot race that they were afraid to run us again. We however defeated Washington Col- lege and University of Maryland, and Western Maryland forfeited to us by non- appearance. In the individual events Johnson, Harrison, Grace, Greenberg, Trim- l)le and Kemp all ran well. In the District National Guard Meet in Washington in March, Grace won second place in the fifty-yard novice; and Kemp won first in the half-mile and second in the quarter; placingM. A. C. second in the total number of points scored in the Meet. Kemp also tied with Eller of Georgetown for the individual point trophy, each scoring eight points. Last April at Philadelphia our relay was defeated by Indiana State Normal in 3 minutes 35f seconds. We however won second in a field composed of Indiana State Normal, Ursinus, Villanova, College of City of New York, Lehigh, Dickenson, Franklin and Marshall and Maryland Agricultural College. This year, in addition to those mentioned we will have to contend with Bucknell, LTniversity of Pittsburg, and Carnegie Tech, but Indiana State Normal will not be against us. Our track and field team as a whole shows weakness in the hurdles and fields events, with the exception of the shot-put. Tolson and Koehler can take care of this event for us; but our team needs a great deal of bolstering in the high jump and pole vault. Then, too, the team greatly misses the services of Duckett and Morris, who have been two of its mainstays for several years past ; but in the new men we have Harri- son, Johnson and Grace who by another year should easily take the place of the men lost by graduation. DONN RECEIVING SMITH ON THE MOUND Captain ' ' ' Ed ' ' Powell As a Lacrosse player Captain Powell has not been surpassed here in the short history of our newest and very progressive sport. After having played a very consistent game with the Mt. Wash- ington Lacrosse team, before entering M. A. C, " Ed " was natur- ally the man to start the game here. From a handful of men Powell organized the team three years ago, and because of the pro- ficiency attained forced the Athletic Association to recognize it last season as one of the adopted sports. The untiring efforts on Powell ' s part are certain to meet with success; and we sincerely hope to see the sport he has established, firmly holding its ground always. ' Peck ' ' Davis When Lacrosse was first introduced at M. A. C, " Peck " was one of the first to respond to the call for candidates, and since then has been a regular member of the team as goal-keeper. He has developed into one of the best goal-men in the State, and his work against Harvard, Carlisle, and Mt. Washington Club was largely responsible for the small scores which these teams made. Time and again opposing attack men have made shots at goal which looked like good, only to be met by Peck ' s trusty stick and turned aside. He has also learned the art of using the body when the stick cannot be brought into play. Davis will be Avith us one more year. 134 136 THE 1912 REVEILLE Lacrosse Team This is the third year that Lacrosse has l)een played at M. A. C, and the failure of the team to win most of its games comes from the fact that it had to play combi- nations completely out of our class. Among the strong teams which we encountered were listed Harvard University, Carlisle Indians, and Mt. Washington The latter is composed mainly of graduates of Hopkins, Swarthmore and Canadian Clubs, who all are stars at the game. Carlisle, the first team which we faced, was held down to the small score of 4 to 1. This proved that the m en had the makings of a good team. One week later the same team from Carlisle defeated Hopkins, 8 to 2. Harvard was next encountered at College Park two days later, and the Crimson by excellent team and stickwork shot 8 goals to M. A. C. ' s 1. Although our team had lost these two games, the fine showing against great odds was encouraging. However the following Saturdays saw our team take a slump and lose to both Baltimore City College and to Walbrook Club. We next met Mt. Washington, and although our team was again defeated we played a fine defensive game. Time and again the Mt. Washington attack would rush the ball down the field only to have it intercepted on a pass and carried back up the field again. Our only victory came in the last game, that with Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, when we blanked them 6 to 0. This game was replete with thrilling plays, and excellent team-work on our part and good defense work by " Poly. " In this game the team played better than in any previous contest; their team-work and stick- work being the result of incessant and hard practice under adverse conditions, and having a string of defeats chalked up against them. The cool manner in which our men handled the balls was equal to the showing of any of the big teams in their games with us. Great credit for the fine showing of the team throughout the season is due to the excellent coaching of Mr. J. Straith Briscoe of the Mt. Washington Club, who was with the team two or three afternoons a week gratuitously giving the team valu- able points on the game. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 137 Lacrosse Season of 1912 E. E.

KoEHLER : Vice-President N. R. Warthen Secretary-Treasurer Being but the second year of its existence, Mar3 Iancrs Rifle Team is but slowly coming into fast company. Several fine scores in the inter-collegiate matches of the season just closed show that we have the nucleus for a first class team ; and with the same squad competing next spring, we should make a better name for ourselves. Early in October the call for candidates was issued and the response encouraging. But the trials were not so impressive, and soon the cuts left but a small squad, from which to pick a team for the Inter-Collegiate League. However the constant gallery practice each evening brought forth better results, and early in January the team was selected, to be composed of Aitcheson, Ames, Bean, Benson, E. AV., Irving, Johnson, Koehler, McCutcheon, Williams, R. C, Williams, T. H. and Warthen, Substitute. As the season progressetl our score showed great improvement, but even at that we could not hold our own against the other colleges, and lost only too frequently towards the close. As we lose no men from the team by graduation, it is to be hoped that the work next year will show more consistency and great improvement over the season closing.

Previous records of our tennis team show that the enthusiasm exempUfied was far below that of the present year. Early in the season the courts were cleared off and practice begun. Powell, our best tennis player, was elected Captain, and under his coaching the team has pros- pered from the beginning. The candidates for the team were mostly men of experi- ence along this line, which greatly aided Captain Powell in his endeavor to establish a team that would be a credit to the institution, besides holding its own alongside the other sports of the College. It was proposed by members of the team that this branch of athletics should be subjected to the consideration of the Athletic Council, and that they in turn should report to the student-body as to the possibility of making the tennis department an authorized team. This proposition has been received by the student-body with great spirit, and it is hoped by the end of the year our Council will adopt this sug- gested scheme. In the past, games have been played, and medals offered to individuals, who have made a good showing. Captain Powell after a very close contest won in the tourna- ment of last year and a medal was awarded him for his excellent showing during the season. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 141 TENNIS TEAM :lJ;.ll ' ,,WkJ v. BOXING CLUB A - K. MuDD President A. B. DucKETT Vice-President N. L. Clark Secretary-Treasurer " Kid " Sullivan Instructor This club was organized in December, 1911. " Kid " Sullivan, who has made a national reputation as a ring-artist, was secured as instructor. On account of the limited time at the disposal of the club, the course of instruction was necessarily too brief to make a finished boxer of each member; but it nevertheless taught the rudiments of this important science and furnished a safe means of protection in an ordinary fistic encounter. It was difficult at first to arouse interest in this sport, but it increased rapidly as the class progressed and the benefits to be derived became more evident. One of the important results accomplished by the club was to attract students to the alhed branches of indoor exercises; such as wrestling, bag-punching, rope-skipping, tum- bling, club-swinging and ring and parallel bar work. Never before has the old gym seen such busy days. There is undoubtedly an almndance of material for this branch of athletics at the College. Given the necessary facilities of apparatus and instruction, it would be safe to predict that M. A. C. could in a few years compete favorably with her sister colleges in these sports. 142 mm i m .iff- f jMM - i ji - If .«i 1 ' -i: ..■,;{v 3! .

A. C. was the Literary Department of the Reveille. The advent of the Triangle has given our poets and authors a new outlet for the expression of their genius, so that a Department of Literature in the Reveille is no longer a necessity. We feel, however, that because of its age and past glories, the Department of Literature, like ' ' Commy ' s " General Orders, and the aged strap-jar, has achieved the dignity of a college tradition. Certain material has been included that may not conform with the dignity of a literary department. We have, however, introduced it in order to make this depart- ment interesting as well as literary. 147 148 THE 1912 REVEILLE The Psalm of Life What the heart of the Young Rat said to the Old-Boy. {Apologies to Longfellow.)

' m 3 ' " " W 150 THE 1912 REVEILLE A Street Car Ride To get on a street car the first thing is to hail it. This consists in the simple operation of getting on the south-east corner of a street running east and west to hail a west-bound car, and on the north-west corner of the same street to hail an east-bound car, and on the north-east corner of a street lying north and south to hail a south-bound car, and on the south-west corner of the same street to hail a north-bound car. One time in ten you do this. The other nine cars you miss, experimenting. After being properly situated you wave your umbrella or your handkerchief, or your cork-leg, or for that matter any available object, at the oncoming car, and if the motorman is ahead of time he ' ll stop a couple of hundred yards from where you are and let you run and get one. If he don ' t stop as is usually the case you become more and more emphatic as others j ass you and finally resort to extreme measures such as blowing out the window-lights with a shot-gun. This method is effective as a rule though in obstinate cases it becomes necessary to derail the car. Under no conditions jump in front of the car. This irritates the motor- man. The company prohibits him from killing more than ten people a day so as to leave some for another tlay and he may have already reached this number. And even if he hasn ' t he ' ll be in mortal terror lest he only maim you for life. So be fore- bearing and avoid such contingencies. Well, maybe you get aboard after awhile. The car is crowded. It alwaj s is. You get wedged in among a German woman with a basket of fish, a glue factory- hand, an Italian with onion-perfumed breath, two negroes and an epileptic. You contribute to the conductor ' s private charity fund, unless you are as big a crook as he is, and settle down to enjoy the ride. The car gives a lurch, and falling back, you land on the Teuton ' s foot with both of yours. Fish brine souses your shirt front, and the Italian adds to your pleasure by breathing heavily under 3 ' our nose. Another lurch and you reel forward against the aromatic one of the glue factory. You plant one foot in a basket of eggs and make wild digs at the atmos- phere with the other. Finally your pants-leg brushes hat of the horse-hoof artist and refuses to leave it. You give a wild pull and just succeed in disengaging it, in company with a sample of the other ' s overalls, when the ca r sways once more. You recover yourself to find your arm affectionately encircling the corpulent figure of a negro washer- woman, and your other hand tightly gripping four smoked MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 151 herring drawn from the German ' s basket. You cease embracing the African, replace the fish and start to apologize, when the car whirls around the corner at an acute angle. You lose your balance and fall back on the Italian. He in turn bowls over the negro. The latter gives two wild clutches and grabs the German woman with one fist and the factory-hand with the other, and you all go down in a tangled heap of arms and legs. Just at this opportune time the epileptic topples over in a fit, and the lady standing next to him falls in a dead faint. The sight is appalling. Seven human beings, in various stages of discomfort, grovelling on the floor of the car with all the delicious aroma of onions, smoked her- ring and horse-hoofs, arise from the chaotic mass and hang like sweet perfume on the oath laden atmosphere. To cap the climax, the conductor develops a sudden streak of energy and bawls, " Mulberry Street!! " high and clear above the tumult. The car stops with a jolt, 3 ' ou roll over twice, slide out the open door and pitch headlong down the steps. Yes, let me repeat my last observation with double emphasis — it affords extreme pleasure to ride on a street car!!

ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION MEETING There will be a special meeting of the Athletic Association on the 30th of February to consider the following proposed amend- ments to the by-laws: Article XVII — Eligibility Section 1. No member of one or more Varsity teams shall be permitted by this Association to take less than thirty hours per week of regular college work. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 153 Section 2. No member of one or more Varsity teams shall be permitted by this Association to engage in, take, or flunk any Faculty examination or quiz except during the playing season. Section 3. No professor shall hold any examination, oral or written, nor any quiz, without submitting to this Association, or its officers, for its or their approval, a list of the men to be examined, orally or writ- tenly, or quizzed; and no men except those by it or them declared ineligible shall be so examined, orally or writtenly or quizzed.

THE JANUARY TRIANGLE " The pen is mightier than the sword, " so said " Jack " Johnson, eminent philoso- pher and confidence man. If all men were like " Jack " Johnson there would be no room for editors, but we do not meet a Johnson every day. Ask Mrs. Pankhurst. This has nothing to do with this article but it is cus- tomary for the reviewer to start out with a quotation from the classics, to show his erudition, and how well qualified he is to umpire a game of pinochle. The story in the current issue of the Triangle is: " The High Price of Meat, or Why We Eat Eggs, " by Charlie Dory, ' 13. We have long felt the need of an egg story, and we are especially pleased with the sav- ory manner in which this is served. Charlie shows the skill-et required to prepare such a treat in the way of a good hen-fruit repast. Mr. Staley as usual has composed a new melody. Its briefness is charming, and it would find a place on the third floor back, but the band holds full sway there. The " Sense and Nonsense " column under the supervision of Mac, ' 12, shows how Joe Miller ' s effort, " Paradise Lost, " should be interpreted. Anyone from Frederick showing familiarity with the quips contained therein will be politely chloroformed. That high-flown piece of tailless poetry by Tar-belly which commences, " Oh where is my wondering boy tonight? Here I am mother flying my kite, " is a delightfully edifying and worthy of more cord. He jumps a step higher and adds, " He tore a slice from the n ' th degree. Hurled it farther than thought can see, LTpsetting the water, the milk, and the tea. And a platter of soft-boiled eggs. " ALUMNI NOTES ' 10, Ex-Captain A. C. Adams has been assigned by the War Department to take over the classes of Lieutenant J. S. U., and to instruct the Seniors, as many as care to take up advanced work in military science, how and how not to enter the National Guard, irrespective of age, color or previous condition of servitude. Ex-Captain H. H. Allen has been urgently requested by the Rossbourg Club to appear at a dance now and then for the pleasure of the College Widows. ' 11, J. W. Kinghorne is a frequent vi?itor to M. A. C. (the mess-hall.) Paul Revere Little has given up his re- search work on the farm and will now look for another job. 154 THE 1912 REVEILLE We believe that A.N. Woodward of Canada was instrumental in the recent defeat of Premier Laurier, and have grave fears now regarding the annexation of the United States and " Doc ' s " adopted land. DRESS PARADE The author when he vividly describes the many intricate geometrical figures, laying stress upon the irregular curves which are so unconsciorsly formed by the Battalion, shows great i)owers of observation and per- haps accuracy. On the whole the January Triangle was a useful issue, and we extend our congratula- tions to the staff whose indefatigable labors have done so much for literature on the Campus. Reginald Algerxox Keelee. CAMPUS COMMENT R. L. Tolson ' 12, because of his slim frame (not taking into account the improvements on said frame) has been mistaken for the flag-pole several evenings by the " Color Guard " at Retreat. E. Z. Martz, ' 12, is an ardent suffragette. It is not likely that the Senior Class will give their annual aeroplane flights this summer as they will be engaged elsewhere, no one knows where — shop, chem. lab.. South America, bell-hopping; anyone of the suggestions very plausible. PERSONALLE As long as life is hard and tough, Please make the biscuits soft enough. There was found on the Campus this morning the body of a cat cut to pieces and sewed up in a sack. The circumstances seem to preclude any suspicions of suicide. EDITORIAL HOW LONG IS A STRING? Much discussion has lately been promul- gated among not only those interested but also those indirectly concerned as well as over the thesis propounded in order to receive full discussion before definite action shall have been taken by several Seniors of position, authority, capacity and induct- ance (for there are such) to the effect that before, or at least not later than. College Park engages in any more activities requir- ing the services of men already interested in other lines, a definite conclusion should be reached, since it is a string that is to make this additional energy possible and to answer the all-important quiz Why is a string, it is necessary that every man who is neither so absorbed in his own lines of activity that he has no thought for others nor so careless of the welfare of Alma Mater that he will not spend time in serious meditation over the serious problems that confronted her, nor so befuddled in judgment that he dis- agrees with us, the paramount importance is plain of coming to a decision, founded on reasoning from knowledge of the facts, over the issue that we have set forth and if there is anything that needs to be said, see us. FELLOWS, THIS MEANS YOU. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 155 From the 0, D. ' s Office (Apologies to Edgar Allmi Poe) On the twelfth of hist September, ya! distinctly I remember, All the Sophs and Freshies lumbered, up the pathway, men galore. While I looked there, deeply doubting, suddenly there came a shouting, From an old-boy gently routing — routing out the ' Rats ' once more. " ' Tis some Sophomore, " I muttered, " shouting at a ' rats ' front door — Shorely he will get his, shore. " But the shout changed to a rumbling, knew I well the rat was grumbling, " Gee he ' s foolish, soon they ' ll get him, then the fun will start once more. Thus I sat me. Little Master, waiting for this dread disaster, Then it started, fast and faster, till my patience was no more. Then I up the steps went bounding, till I reached the topmost floor. Only peace reigned there once more. While I stood engaged in guessing, not one syllable expressing, From the " Roost " there came the gentle purring of a Thomas-cat. Then the growl of canine fellow, then the air grew quickly yellow For the sound was not so mellow, not the song of humble " rat, " But the din oft deathlike contest — each one in his Last Combat, Canine, feline, — dog and cat. 156 THE 1912 REVEILLE The Autocrat of the Senior Table (The morning after the night before) Bill Grace — Hello, fellows!

Bill Grace — Now, Doc says — Major Bill Kemp — " Battalion Rise! " Slowly and grudgingly the bosses of the realm leave their table. Better luck next time. The Indian Boy The eagle soars above the lonely pines The cattle roam where ' er the eye may look, Upon the ground the Indian boy reclines And reads the printed pages of a book. No more the bow-string tightens to his arm No more his vagrant feet tread winding streams, His mind upon the book has found strange charm And so, Dear God, he pays the price of dreams.

FROM Guess Work— to Certainty To Our Friends, Our Customers: The greatest thing that has happened in our business lives and in the almost hundred years ' experience of our establishment, is the fact, the seed business in the last few years, has emerged from a business of some indefiniteness to one of almost absolute certainty. The three great points of Trustworthy Seeds are: First, Stock Purity; Second, Mechani- cal Purity; Third, Germination and Vitality or Viability. The first and most important point, Stock Purity, rests almost entirely upon the knowledge and integrity of the Seed Grower. The accumulated experience of four generations, almost a hundred years, has taught us who are the most Trustworthy Specialists among the Seed Growers of the world. The second point, Mechanical Purity, for many years, was decided by the accuracy of the human eyes and years of experience, but now, nothing so indefinite is done, for with Graduate Botanists making use of scientific and minutely accurate apparatus working in our completely equipped Seed Laboratory, we are able to know to the one-hundredth part of one per centum, the pure seed; the amount of small sticks, dirt and other inert matter; the number and kind of foreign seeds, if any, of every variety of seed we buy or sell. Mechanical Purity has never entered into Vegetable Seed for they are grown under such intensive cultivation, foreign seeds are entirely absent. Man ' s genius has perfected cleaning machinery that recleans all Field Seeds, Clover and Grasses within an extremely small fraction of being absolutely pure. The third point, Germination and Vitality or Viability, To be of value, all seeds must grow and grow vigorously and with the aid of the most recent scientific information and test chambers constructed on principles laid down by the Agricultural Department Experts, together with our hot house tests and field tests; the germination properties of our seeds are frequently and accurately tested — several tests being made of each item at the same time under different environments, so as to tally not only the number of seeds that grow, but also the vigor and strength with which they grow. What Vou Arc Justly Entitled to Surrounding Our Seed with all these earnest efforts to have them Trustworthy, Pure and True, we can with confidence solicit your order for seed for 1912 and believe that unless you secure seeds that have been as carefully watched and protected from start to finish, you are not getting what you are justly entitled to. Good seeds are at the bottom of all good agri- culture, they are the foundation stones, success is impossible without them. Our chief ambition for 1912 is to make happy and more prosperous every customer of our house.

This illustration shows a scene in the Testing Department of the General Electric Company. A group of technical graduates are testing two large frequency changer sets by the pumping back method. Each set consists of of a 1250 Kw. alternator driven by a synchronous motor with direct connected exciter. Sixteen men are required to take the readings in this test. 400 to 500 technically trained men are employed as Student Engi- neers in the Testing Department of the General Electric Company. These men test all the apparatus manufactured at the Schenectady and Pittsfield works, including steam turbines, and are transferred from one section to another at regular intervals. The work is not easy and always pleasant, but offers an excellent opportunity for the engineering student to secure a practical knowledge of the latest types of all kinds of electrical machinery.
