Tis the hand of Fate that calls us From out the future years And it bids us to hurry, hurry. To shed not useless tears. But where is he among us Whose heart is now so cold That he will hurry onward. As once he boasted bold? He ' s missing from our roster ; For a tear drop dims his eye — ■ Yes, he loves his Alma Alater When he bids her now good-bye.

And falsely have my eyes behold A thing I can ' t believe? I know I ' m wrong, but brother, stop ! Discard your worldly ways For one fleet hour, and hark ye back To live in other days. In those old days of college life You never shall forget, And think you on one truth that is Your college loves you yet. Well do I know that you recall A lad who left his home And traveled here to live beneath The shelter of this dome. And mind you of his timid look When in a Freshman ' s role That meeting of the " rats " was held — His first step toward the goal? And then how on the football field He watched his team ' s first game. And how th-ere swelled up in his heart A something hard to name? 15 Xow once again the scene is changed, You hear his jolly shout, As in the Sophomore ' s gay garb He sends his challenge out. Then on to Junior ' s happy days You see him, debonair. And hear ' mid dance and pleasure gay His laughter on the air. At last a Senior you behold. With all a Senior ' s pride. But waiting to emliark his raft Upon the ocean ' s tide. Perhaps your heart still may desire To live again that day. But well you know that for us all There comes but once life ' s May. So treat them kindly, Ijrother boy, They ' ll come to you no more. Those Freshman, Junior, Senior years. Or the years of Sophomore. But still on you your college looks. As year piles up on year ; Your life, though you are long since gone, Still holds its impress here. Still do we praise you in our songs And mark each noble deed — Our lives ye mold, as now we reap The harvest of your seed. Today we are the children of The mother you once knew. And we must con those dear old tasks That once were conned by you. Our mother longs for you, big boy. She ' s proud of each good deed ; Where e ' er you go. what e ' er your fate, She wishes you God-speed. So come back just this once in dreams And tread this dear old hall. So that your Alma Mater ' s heart May feel your footsteps fall. L ' Envoi Dream on, old boy, dream on tonight — There ' s a vacancy back here That you may fill again tonight By the gift of just one tear. The Editor. m WHKRK Fi; ENTER -■(irV-.,n. l „ .

" Here ' s to love and unity, dark eorners and opportunity " " Isn ' t it strange that such an unusually bright boy can make of himself such a perfect fool? " observed a certain young lady a short time ago. She was unfortunate enough to occupy a seat just in front of " Brock " when the two were attending high school together. Indeed, this re- mark discribes our tall, handsome, eccentric " Bill " to the proverbial T. As for the social side of " Brock ' s " career, little can be said about him prior to his debut into Hyattsville Saturdav night society, where he seems to have been lion- ized by the elite of that " burg " and other adjoin- ing centers of population. However, his occa- sional splurges seem not to have wholly demoral- ized him, for he still manages to lead his Class with the ease and grace you would expect from a casual glance at his onery " mug.

Ever since that memorable date he has consist- ently attended classes once or twice a week. If he can get through life as easy in the future as in the past he deserves our increased adjniration and best wishes. Without joking, though, " Burly " is a fine fellow and through his pleasant geniality and courtesy has accjuired a large circle of friends. STANLEY E. DAY, Baltimore, Md.

The derivation of his name is well known to " rats " : " Stan, " from the laltese, meaning " humpty " (to stand on end) ; and " ley, " from the Irish, meaning ■ ' dum]:)ty " (bed). Or " Humpty Dumpty, " svnonvm " To stand a bed off its legs. " r n 27 LEWIS AV. ERDMAX, Baltimore, Md. iVxi.MAL HUSBAXDRV SoMiomorc — Corporal Class Secretary. Junior — Sergeant. Senior- ' s.

Z ),(f O squeeze into a dozen volumes the stupendous deeds and multi- farious activities of the Class of 1916 would be the work of a Ridpath or a Bancroft. It is obvious then that for me to attempt more than the barest epitome in the couple of paltry pages to which I am constricted would be conceit or worse. We were gathered from the four corners of the earth, and the Lord only knows where else. Forty-three answered the hrst roll call, and a motley crew it was. Ignorant, green, self-conscious and confused, but withal conceited and bouyant, it was just such a crowd as Freshmen are wont to be the world over. If we were lost it was for but a short while, for the Sophomores, acting in a truly gallant and chivalrous manner, soon pointed out to us the paths of virtue, humility and servility. Not only were the devious ways pointed out, but by persuasion as insiduous and deljilitating as only the cajolery of Sophomores can be, and by deeds of admonition so heinous that the} ' must have been born of the devil himself, were we induced to follow the straight and narrow ways. Then came the lire, destroying our living quarters. Our common loss served not only to bind us closer together, but it also made us a bit more tolerable to the " old boys. " The training to which we had been subjected in our Freshman year at the hands of the Class of 1915 was to stand us in good stead in the next, our Sopho- more year. Tradition had taught us that the Sophomore Class is the College ' s " King ' s Jester, " the original and only dull care chaser, the " Step lively, watch vour step " of the collegiate world. We were all of tliat — and more. Our }ear of experience on the greasy end of the same stick had ripened us. The traditions and lore of all time were ours. Were we not Sophomores? Were we not the Lords of Maryland Agricultural College, with the world of quaking Freshmen at our feet in humble subjection and servitude? And if the dastardly deeds to which we were subjected were fo;;si)ired. then the ones w4iich we perj etrated were spired. Surely the boy who w rote — " See the gallant Sophomore, Behold his form so fair ; How proud he is. How stern he is ; His skull is filled w ith air " — 41 Fav rite QccupzitiQio.s.

The latent potentialities of our Class even evinced themselves in such an anomalous form as an aspiration on the part of the majority of the Class to learn the l)arl)er ' s trade. Indeed, the Experiment Station was actuallv converted into a practical laboratory designed to make master barbers and smooth-faced (also sore-faced) " rats. " Hut, notwithstanding our alleged barbarities, a larger percentage of new students became satisfied with life at Maryland Agricultural College than had been the case for years previously, which fact testifies to our eft cienc • and congeniality. The social whirl of college life in our Juni(jr year rushed down and engulfed us. The big games, the numerous Rossbourg dances, the " joUv Good Times, " the Class dances, and the various other college functions simplv swamped us We also experienced our most strenuous year from an academic point of view, our courses waxing more and more difiicult. W ithal, we passed one of the busiest years of our college careers, and yet it was probably the most joyous and carefree of any — a sort of amorphous, happy medium between the helter-skelter Sophomore and the dignified Senior. " Ah, there! " " How are you? " " Hey, thar ! " " Do I look upon vou well? " " Well, I think I do. " " Hel-lo! " " You ' re lookin ' fine — where are the kids? " " Well. I ' ll be ! " Such were the salutations which renewed the Class com- raderie and personal friendshi])s this fall when we assembled once more. At last that for which we had been joyfully striving and praying for four years was ours. We were Seniors. The thing grew on us cumulatively, insiduously. But, alas ! " The grass is always just a little greener on the other side, " and we realized that the eml)odiment of our dream fell far short of our ideal. It was denuded of all the splendor and dignity always associated with the estate of the Senior, and shorn of its former lure and lustre. Yes, we were Seniors, but at what a cost ! This was to be our last year at the old " Aggie vSchool. " We were stunned. But the busy life of the Senior soon assuaged our sorrow. The fervor and excitement of the football season with its big games, the rush of Rossbourg dances, the Junior Prom., and the whirl of the various other social and collegiate endeavors and activities, along with the omnipresent scholastic duties, all furnished outlets for our unlimited energies. Then came spring, and before we realized it the " Finals " were at hand. We are not so egotistic as to claim that we are the best Class that has ever graduated from Maryland Agricultural College ; but we do claim, and through no mere braggadocio, that we have been one of the most progressive and con- 43 LhinciS LhdX Dever hd ppan. his V.iYhC.iK. dues Love Vv iib photo 0 tC.E.5mlth X T, " ' :}- X C. r ' ' 9 l i € pntar (Elasa iatorij — Concluded structively active classes which has passed through the portals of jMarvlancl Agricultural College. Not only have the members of the Class of 1916 evinced an intense interest in athletics, scholastic work and social endeavor, but they have done more — they have been leaders in all of the many and diverse collegiate activities, not only in the Senior year but throughout our entire college career. We have had the privilege of being students at the Maryland Agricultural College during the inauguration of a new era of progress and expansion. We are, as it were, a milestone marking the beginning of that delightful epoch in which this old College is to assume a new and greater growth, an era in which the promise of our youth will be realized to the fullest. And now we have come to the end of our Senior year and to Commencement. We sit and contemplate. From the past the old joys and the old sorrows are reliorn. The visions of former conquests and victories, the words and deeds of kindness and lirotherly loxe, and the memory of old and sacred associations troop mockingly by. .All of the ancient traditions and lore of " Maryland " surge down upon us, overwhelming us. Ah, it is hard. But from the depth of our sorrow there springs a high resolve to live the spirit of old Maryland Agricultural College, as the Spartans of old lived the spirit of Sparta. W here the pass of Thermopylae winds its way between the craigs and the sea there still stands on the spot where three hundred Spartans died for liberty, a pillar, upon which is inscribed : " Go, stranger, tell it at Lacedaemona that we lie here in obedience to her laws. " Today, the echo of these simple words resounds down through the ages the truth that the path to manhood lies through honor and duty well performed. If, perchance, we, like these Spartans of old, carry from this life naught save the bitter wounds and scars of its battles, so long as we continue true an.d free, and so long as the spirit of honor, of progress, of justice and of love — the spirit of old " IMaryland " — is the bugle which summons us to action, then not only .shall we have lived purely the spirit of our Alma INIater, but we shall also have accjuired a character as noble and eternal as the immortal source from whence it sprung. One word more. If, fellow-classmates, in an idle moment vou should peruse these pages and through the vista of time there beams forths a little ray of happiness to brighten one wee hour, if they can for you live the olds days o ier just once more, then, fellows of ' sixteen, the Historian will feel that your trust was not misplaced.

And the " Skv Pilot ' ' ( " Rabbi " Darrow ) is but little better than a vSenior as far as ancientness is concerned, and but little worse as — but that will come later in the story. The Junior year of 1914-15 had been a hard, hard year for the Seniors-To-Be of 1916. Due to terrific brain ( ?) work, the - were about all in. So the gentleman whose business it is to smile cheerily, put people on cabinets, and get up three-legged races, decided for the good of posterity (and the individuals concerned), to send delegates to the Middle Atlantic Y. Al. C. A. Convention. . nd they were sent. It was an exceedingly difficult undertaking to select the " chosen few " from among the numerous material. Derrick was enlisted from the Juniors, of course, but when he found out who his companions were to be. " Harvey " got a job. First on the list was " Whitner " Aitcheson, whose failing is girls. He " loves " the ladies. Put him in F orneo and the C[ueens would resign from their thrones — here they merely resign from the other fellow ; and, what is worse, he " sings " in a choir. Next comes " Ed " Taylor, of the deep- dyed villain type, with an angelic smile and " lean and hungry " thoughts. " Ed " is a baseball catcher ( ? ) scares the batters to death by his threats, and his enemies declare that he is addicted to the use of low-priced grape juice. Third and last, but not least, is John Sterling. Yes, John does belong to the Y. M. C. A. Not much else good can be said of him except that he has a pious look. They left at 11.30 one night, which was as soon as they could be found — it doesn ' t matter iclierc they were found. The " Pilot " went along, too, because he wanted to be sure they really attended the Conference. They traveled all night; thev changed cars; they tried to maroon the " Rabbi " on a train to Canada, but he awoke too soon. They arrived in time for a lecture upon the sins of youth. All went and enjo}ed it except Sterling, who sickened and went to bed (went swimming). For a whole week they attended bible classes, mission studies and sermons. They became very good, all exce])t " Rabbi, " who flirted outrageoush- with the waitresses, and went home early. Then they " jacked up. " " Whitner " found a girl on the train. " Ed " and John told " Snap])y Stories. " Arriving in Washington, they both said D , went to look for " Whitner ' ' and found him persuading the girl to go to a dance. 47 AROUND THE CAMPUS ff aite-Anspon c£ : ' ■■y c ■, ?- Q.

In three years a " rat " ' may become a Junior. A few events in this evolution will now be briefly chronicled. When the Class of 1917 matriculated as " rats, " nobody gasped with amazement at the tremendous influx of intellectuality for the Maryland Agricultural College. The Junior Class does not pur- pose reprimanding any witnesses who fail to appreciate its achieve- ments, for such an attitude clearly indicates that purblind sensi- bilities preclude evil intentions. It is not the prerogative of a Junior to cast aspersions upon the judicial capacities of the Seniors, but it is the desire of the present Junior Class to convince their elder brethren that it is not an ordinary Class. If this were the only claim for distinc- tion, there would probably be no difference of opinion, but it is necessary to impress the dignified Seniors with the fact that for three ye ars they have had the privilege of associating with a Class of unusual ability. There may be, and, probably, there are, persons who deny, at least indirectly, that the Junior Class possesses any unusual mental ability. As one man, we rise to refute this calumny. Conceding, at the outset, that certain worthy pro- fessors may occasionally confide to the Class that they, the Class members, are inordinately stupid, such a phenomenon is readily explained. The professor takes charge of one of his Classes, and, immediately, perceptions of the ignorance of his students ])our in upon him from all sides and overwhelm him. Such per- ceptions insiduously seep in until finally his entire nervous organism is saturated. By straining a simile, we can imagine that the ethereal substance, Avhich has perco- lated so readily into his physical nature, is gasoline. Then the Junior Class enters, and some unsophisticated member inadvertently provides a spark. The unfortunate Juniors suft ' er the consequences, but, if the discriminating reader were to examine the professor ' s schedule, he would discover that a certain Class, the identity of which is not divulged, usually precedes the Junior Class with respect to the hour of recitation. Lest such an explanation may not sufliciently exonerate the Junior Class from all appearance of ignorance, the Historian is willing to hazard his reputation as a prophet on the supposition that, before this terrestrial sphere has completed another lap in its gamboling Marathon about 52 - ■••-r .-.y 7 benignant Sol, those professors who have been skeptical with regard to the mental ability of the Junior Class, will be extolling our Class in the presence of our successors as a model for emulation in respect to the identical characteristics which have been under discussion. However, a discussion with regard to the intellectual ability of the junior Class constitutes a digression from the task assigned. Therefore we will proceed to consider, in a chronological manner, a few of those events which would seem by their very nature to be peculiarly adapted to express the individualism of the Jimiors. The opportunities of a " rat " to exert his influence, whether for good or evil, are usually lacking. Consequently, in accordance with the theories of the upper- classmen, the intellectual prodigy, which matriculated in 19L3, did not imme- diately advertise his talents. In commenting upon this era of Class History, we may sav that genius, like civilization, has its " dark ages. " Yet our hero, living up to the standards set by his predecessors, soon emerged from the obscure regions which are delegated to the rodents. Having achieved distinction for himself, he directed his efforts to effect the enlightment of his benighted suc- cessor. He did not confine himself to the antiquated methods of the previous disciplinarians of the " rats, " for his ?esthetic tastes demanded something modern. Therefore, green caps came into vogue among the Freshmen. But, although the Junior Class was entirely altruistic in its endeavors to educate the younger brothers of the Freshman Class, it was not so busy with such work as to neglect other important duties. One day, when there was a cattle- judging contest at Laurel, this Class participated so capably that it received sixty dollars out of a total amount of one hundred that was offered as prize money. No one would venture to write a history of the Junior Class without referring to athletics, and, if the writer has a fertile imagination, the thought of the con- sequences of such an omission engenders an irrepressible tendency to shudder. The magnitude of the penalties to be inflicted for a dereliction in the matter just referred to is the result of the inordinate relation between the size of the Class and its athletic achievements. College loyalty prevents an unwarranted laudation of the Junior athletes, for even the Historian may not focus the searchlight U])on the history of college- athletics in such a manner that the deeds of other heroes of Maryland Agricultural College shall be brought into obscurity. Therefore, rest assured that every statement to be made with reference to athletics may be verified by search in the athletic annals of our College. A few facts will be noted briefly. 53 ' ■■■ M- f 7 --- - y cA-yH ■■• ' - ' ' fm ' m 3untor (ElasH l taturg— Concluded A Junior is the Captain of the football team for the following season. The Junior Class has a large number of men on the varsity baseball and football teams. Since the Junior Class matriculated, Maryland Agricultural College has thrice won the State Championship in baseball and twice in football, with three successive defeats for St. John ' s in the latter. It may please the friends of the College to know that, in each of the achievements noted above, members of the Junior Class played an important part. There is one other event to be recorded. On the twenty-fifth of February, at Raleigh Hotel, gentlemen from Maryland Agricultural College accompanied by a galaxy of buxom beauty, staged a fete which with respect to the harmonious beauty effected by the various arrangements was unusually imjiressive. No mere man could hope to do justice to the artistic ability displayed in feminine attire. The eft ' ect of all this beauty was enhanced by the fact that the orchestra gave a wonderfully creditable performance. Further zest was added to the entertainment by the subtle ei)igrams in the programs. Yet all this splendor had a demoralizing effect on many reputable Juniors, as was evidenced by their mental aberrations on the following day. Stellar ])rognostications convey the pleasing information that the Juniors will be even more successful in the world of business than in the college world. Consequently, it behooves each Junior to strive to establish a high record for scholarship in his final year, so that there mav really be guaranteed a greater measure of success in the ftitm e. .■4lllmlllll!ln -iillll!liMillJlllliiiillJlllliiiiiylIllhiilllillli,iilllllilniillllll (lIlllMiillllllliniillli ' ii rillily liiliiilllllill Ullllmiiliillli.iillll l aui tt Unrka A boat and a beach and a summer resort, And a man and a maid and a moon; Soft and sweet things, and then at the real Psychological moment a spoon.

Williams 58 npljnmnr Qllaas Btatflry OST unassuming of all Sophomore Classes of Maryland Agricultural College is the Class of 1918. Throughout this year the Class which is customarily associated with precosity has demonstrated its belief in these lines: " A little learning is a dangerous thing ; Drink deep, or taste not of the Pierian Spring. ' ' There has been no eiTort on the part of the present Sophomore Class to gain immortality by innovating some radical change in their government over new students. In decreeing that new fel- lows should wear green caps, we followed an example set by predecessors, and likely determined the perpetuation of a custom most appropriate for a new M. A. Caesar to observe. The Class abolished many of the old " rat rules, " rules requiring foolish performances, rules permitting indignities from " old fellows, " which were disgraceful to the College and all concerned. Only stich rules as were necessary to restrain the new boys from bigotry and misbehavior were adopted. The sole purpose of the Class ' relation with the new fellows has been to aid and encourage them ; and we believe that the lower classmen will admit that they have been accorded only gentlemanly treatment from the Sophomores since they matriculated last fall. So lenient has the Class been in dealing with its sub- ordinates that criticisms have come from various sources, taunting the Sopho- mores for not indulging in a pernicious custom. But the Class has not fostered hazing in any form ; it has merely tried to do its duty. The old barrier of Class feelings between the Sophomore and Freshman Classes has been demolished. In its stead have been instituted various athletic and indoor contests. These contests have come to be recognized as a source of great rivalry and fair play. Although defeated in the Cane Rush held last autumn, followed by another defeat in the billiard tournament, the Sophomore Class bowed graciously to the result. So manifest was the good sportsmanshi]) of the Class that we quote the following Editorial appearing in the Maryland Agricultural College Weekly for February 2, 1916: " The spirit that is being shown by the Sophomore Class is setting an example of good sportsmanship that may well be followed by Maryland Agri- cultural College Classes of today and all time. The Freshman flag has not been lowered since the Cane Rush, and the Sophomores have met defeat in everv 60 SIS F interclass contest, but they l ' ia e accepted it with cheerful grins and a determina- tion to scrap harder the next time. They ha e not taken advantage of their position as Sophomores and made it hard for the Freshmen, but have been more than s([uare all the vear through. " On November 4, 1915, the history of the Class was interrupted bv a sad event. DeWit Hart, of Riverdale, a classmate, while journeying to College, met instant death when hit by a train. In respect to the deceased member, the Class, upon request to the Faculty, was granted a recess from studies on the after- noon following the tragedy. An Obituary Committee from the Class drafted resolutions which were forwarded to the bereaved family of Mr. Hart and ])ub- lished in the JVcckly. I ' he Class also decided to retain the name of the departed member on its role until our Senior year. Besides contributing a beautiful bouquet of American Beauties for his obsequies, the Class attended the funeral services in a body. His memorv will be long cherished bv his classmates. The Class of F)1(S is remarkable for students of unusual faculties, intellectu- ally and athletically. It cottld have shown a domineering influence over the new fellows; it might have ]jer])etrated heinous acts under the name of a " little fun, " which has characterized Sophomores from time immemorial. Instead its i owers have been directed towards accomplishing things of permanent value. -Aside from the large pro rata of rejjjresentative athletes furnished by the Class, the scholastic work of the Class has been most gratifying to every department — Professor Richardson says that the English work of the Class has surpassed that of any preceding Sophomore Class at IVIaryland Agricultural College. The year has been one of concentrated experiences, not without its pleasures, not free from sadness. It has witnessed the welding of friendship ties, the estab- lishment of fellowships rivalling those of fraternalism. These various experi- ences form the foundation of a hopeful future. The Class gazes into the future and fancies the time when hazing shall be looked upon at Maryland Agricultural College as a relic of barbarism ; it pictures that soon this Class will go out into the arena of life to combat and to conquer. JuBt 0 You can always tell a Senior, for he ' s so sedatelv gowned ; You can always tell a Junior from the way he sports around. AV)U can always tell a Freshie from his timid looks and such ; A ' ou can always tell a Sophomore, but you can not fell him much. 61 ENGINEERIiNG BUILDING Waite-Anspon FRESHMAN l ,-, SCfPH - AT r I R e Fob, f J.

These, together with the members of the pre- ceding Sub-Freshman Class, were to constitute the Freshman Class. As is customary in Maryland Agricultural College, we " rats " were several times the guests of honor at recej tions given bv the Sophomore Class. We were undetermined how to take the advice of the solemn-faced President of the Sophomores; but we have since tried to be good little " rats, " and I believe " Peck " will agree that our attempts were fairly successful. Since we were the largest Freshman Class in the historv of the College we decided to be the greatest. So, when our first opportunity for greatness presented itself, to wit; the annual Cane Rush, we went after victory with grim determination written all over us. On the memorable afternoon of vSeptember 25th, between the halves of the " Polly " game, we stood anxiously on our end of the football field, while the Sophomores waited on their end. At the crack of the pistol, we dashed for the cane. Chipman reached it first and carried it into Sophomore territory. This was but for a short time, as the experienced Sophomores succeeded in getting into our territory. However. -ictory was finally ours when Perry grabbed the cane and bore it far into the " Soph ' s " half of the field. Then, in November, we again met our dear friends, the same old Sophomores, in an interclass contest, this time a cross country run. As the Class of 1919 was the College ' s greatest Class it had to win ; so, thanks to Chipman, who won the event, and some other " rats, " the upper-classmen found themselves again defeated. And " 1919 " still flew over the campus. In the annual billiard tournament, held in January, it was the same old story. Nothing to it but the Freshmen. J. B. Clark started things our wav in this event by defeating Pyle, then " Rat " Posey humbled Barrett, and finally " Ruby " Hart conquered Gilmour, the three " rats " bringing home the bacon to the total score of 306 to 201. This, fellow students, has been the brilliant story of the first year of the great and glorious Class of 1919. 66 (Ulaaa nf 1920 OFFICERS L. M. GooDWTX . . President H. Hallam Vice-President C. W.

WAI.KEK BEALL, Beltsville, Md. Agriculture In September, 1914, " Sam " entered the famous two- year class, and since that holy date he has given many interesting talks on the farmers of Beltsville. He is quite a ladies man, and he often talks of the village queens of his home town. There is no doubt that when " Sam " gets down to tilling old Mother Earth he ' ll make a go of it. The Class wishes him a bright and successful future as an agriculturist. LEE Rl DI BINOHA.M Washington, D. C. Agriculture Bingham was born in Washington City and there spent his early school days. He attended the Tech- nical High School, from whence he came to Maryland Agricultural College. For the first year he boarded at College, but owing to certain attractions in Wash- ington this year, he is now a day student and spends much of his time in the glow of the bright lights. Here ' s luck to his future. THOMAS BLAKE BOURNE B. ltiniore, 3Id. Agriculture " Tommy " prepared at the Baltimore Polytechnic Institute and in the fall of 1914 entered Maryland Agricultural College. He is very popular among his fellow-students and was made Treasurer of his Class in 1915. " Tommy " makes frequent visits to his home to see about the farm, he says, but this sounds rathei- " fishy. " He decided to do something for his College by getting all the " Nuts " out of " B " ' section, but the only victim was his room-mate, Weigand. 72 JOSEPH PAl L BROWX I 2 Centerville, M( . Agriculture This, my readers, is " Brownie, " from the sand heaps of Centerville, and although some members of the fair sex have been known to call him a " mere infant " because of the almost invisible down on his chin, such is not the case, for he went home to vote last fall. " Brownie " is the athlete of our Class. He won a medal on the Relay Team his hrst year, and was a member of l)oth football and baseball squads for two years. GEORGE CI-EAIENTS Chestertown, Md. Agriculture We have liere " Gus, " better known as " Tally ' s Sleeping Beauty, " a worthy representative of the Eastern Sho " . Judging from his frequent visits, also correspondence, to a Virginia village, it would seem that he has other matters than scientific agriculture on his hands. " Gus " has many friends among the students, and H,vattsville seems to have a special at- traction for him. His classmates join in wishing him a successful and bright future. CJ3 ADELBERT HUNGERFOBD Marshall Hall, Md. HoRTrCULTURE " Hungry " spends most of his time in the pool room, where he has learned how to handle a cue pretty nicely. His conversation is chiefly about his black horse, " Star, " and from his accounts there was never a better tournament horse. There is no doubt but that " Hungry " has crowned and won the hearts of quite a few ladies at the Charles County tournaments. He is trying to learn enough to run his Charles Coun- tv farm. 73 EDAVAKI) WILMAKTH LAPHAM GoUlsboro, M 1. Horticulture " Lap " hails from the sand hills of Caroline County. He always has a smile, even at the most critical moment in the classroom, hut soon after entering school we were afraid that the smile would vanish because a Denton maid forgot his College address. Mav now be seen " hittin ' the Pike " between College and West Riverdale, but we all feel sure he will go back to the Sho ' and settle down with his little Ca ' line dame. HARRY Mfl 0 -ALD Barton, Md. Agriculture Mr. McDonald was born among the rock-strewn hills of the Alleganies, where he tended his father ' s Hocks as they gamboled from precipice to precipice, the development enabling him to cling tenaciously to the arduous position of Second Base on the Barton High School nine. He has the honor of being President of the Class, is bold, honorable, enterprising, energetic, and, like all good Scotch, improx ' es witli age. .I. .MES E. MILLS Hyattsville. : ltl. Horticulture " Jimmie " is the oldtimer of the Class in the number of ears he has spent as an Aggie. He entered the preparatory department in the fall of 19n and shortly after was made Secretarv of that Class. In 1914. having changed his ideals, and his course of study along with them, he was elected President of our Class and was appointed a Corporal, and this year he lias a Sergeantcy. He is noted for his old pipe, which is so strong that it is used for greenhouse fumigation. 74 - c3:,- ; , -- s - " ' ' 9 ' y J$. ■•- ■ gyVT-yy-o. ' l g S ii 2: y " " .

We have never been able to find out just why he choose to cast his lot among- us, but it didn ' t take us an instant to name his native State. Quiet, gentle- manly, unassuming, and knowing far more about his work than syiven credit for by certain of the College ' s employes whose actions often point to their lineage, " Tally " has crept close to the heart of manv a Mary- land boy. May the Old Dominion State give us manv more like him. E(JBERT WII.LI.VM THOMPSON AVasIiington, I). ( ' . Agriculture " Tommy " spent four enjoyable years in the Tech- nical High School of Washington, where he kept several professors busy trying to locate him. He is a member of the football squad and has been elected a member of the Poe Literary Society on the strength of his oratorical prowess. He is handicapped greatly bv being in love, spendinp ' too many hours thinking of the days with Her on the old Potomac, but let him cheer up — " Every day ' ll be Sunday bye and bye. " c ALLEN S. TREVVETTE Richmond, Va. Agriculture This gentleman is sometimes known as Professor Ruffner ' s shadow. He was born in Virginia. 21 years ago. When not awav on milk-testing trips, he spe- cializes in the girls of Washington, Hvattsville, Berwyn and College Park, with occasional extra trips to Baltimore and Richmond. Besides this. Allen stands well in his studies, is a loud if not the loudest noise in the band, and he is Vice-President of his Class. His ambition is to please the women. 75 - JOHN WILLIS VAN HORN Seattle, AVash. Horticulture In 1910 " Van " migrated from Seattle to W ' estern Maryland, where he joined a l)and of engineers and immediately proceeded to scour the hills of old Ken- tucky. As he tramped the " Trail of the Lonesome Pine " he tells us that he made acquaintance with many magicians who possessed the power to make the moon shine on a stormy night. He has now hided his time with us and is away on his journey to prosperity. W ' e all wish him luck. C?3 HARRY BAUGIIER WARD Baltimore, I(1. Agriculture In the fall of 1915 Ward wandered into the bounds of the Maryland Agricultural College, and possessing the desire to obtain agricultural knowledge he hon- ored our Class with his membership. This youth opens his mouth in class rooms only on the rarest occasions, and then only to yawn. But in spite of this, Corporal " H. B. " possesses those excellent char- acteristics that will lead a man to success. (iffirpra of % ®mo-f rar (Elasa H. M. McDoN. LD President A. S. TrevETTE ' iee-P resident T. B.

Thompso.x Historian 76 Btatnrg of ti t oluin-f ar Aggi fi HE Two-Year Class of 1916, contrary to the usual custom of such organizations, does not claim to be the one bright star in the con- stellation of classes, the " King pin, " or the favorite son of the lot. On the other hand, we claim to be sturdy heirs to the teachings of the old School ; we have learned that in service to the School, we best serve ourselves ; and we ho])e that in service to our fellow- men we may still again be bettered. On Thursday, September 17, 1914, we gathered as a Class for the first time. A most cosmopolitan crowd we were — farmers ' sons filled to the finger tips with rugged health and a workaday knowledge of country life; city fellows, seeking health, or heeding the cry " Back to the Soil, " men terribly handicapped with a lack of knowledge of the fundamental farm principles ; and others who because they had " flunked out " in classes elsewhere, " hit the toboggan for our midst. Then, as soon as we got started the College eliminated the " Prep " Depart- ment, and another landslide struck us. Our Class now numbered thirty-six men, but the efifectiveness of our work was lessened by the large percentage of fellows who had not awakened to the responsibility of their school work and who were not only too lazy to work themselves but retarded the others by disorder and inattention in class. Some- thing of the ability of the bona fide students of the Class can be shown by com- paring them with the Seniors of 1915 in our course in Poultry. Our Class was united with the Seniors of 1915 in this study, and in the final examinations at least three of our men made higher marks than any of the Seniors. At the close of our first year w e elected officers to assume the responsibility of the Class for 1916. This year when all had returned we found that our Class, even with the addi- tion of one new member, was reduced to less than half its former strength. As those who were missing were for the most part drones anyway, their absence was accepted with a sigh of regret. As for the rest of us, there are but few indeed who have not done their bit in one way or another to foster the school ' s activities. Football, baseball, track and literary work — all claim some of us. no stars perhaps, but willing workers, the foundation upon which success is built. Historian. 77 ' ::- Py ' A -y : .-:-A- .

" His position is that of Super- intendent at the Experiment Sta- tion, but the reason we are here giving you a glimpse of his jolly old countenance is because of what he has done for athletics at our College. Year after year has Mr. Brinkley, in his quiet, unassuming- way, assisted in and often actually taken charge of caring for and building up our athletic fields. Ask the Coach about it, and he will tell you that Mr. Brinkley has always truly been " the man of the hour. " 84 Atl]bttr0 HE American i eople are known the world around as a people bubbling over with life and enthusiasm, and within the AmericatT college there is gathered the cream of the younger generation of our land — young men full to the brim with suppressed physical energy and undaunted initiative. Mere books furnish no outlet for these sterling gifts. There must be another channel, and that other channel is personified in the God of Athletics. It is as natural for a clean-cut boy to be an athlete as it is for a rabbit to run, a bird to fly, a mule to kick or for water to roll off the proverbial duck ' s back. But, aside from this natural inclination, which alone would justify the support of athletics, there is another, a material side. Phvsical develo])ment is essential to the boy who must tight the battle with his hurrying, hustling, ever onward-i)Ushing American brothers. For no matter how high the state of mental development reached, unless there is sutiicient physical power to work in conjunction with the activities of the brain and produce lasting qualities, the individual will sufifer severe reverses in the close competition with which his fellow-citizens will pave his footholds down the path of life — " A corpse iiia float upon tlic ivlwc, but strength and manhood arc required to stem the tide. " The parent usually has it rooted deep down in his cranium that the gridiron wnll bring to his boy either violent mutilation or mortal accident. He reads in the paper that some boy has been crippled in this sport, and that is enough to justify his decision. He, with a pitifullv narrow view, does not remember that railroad accidents, for instance, have meant death to five thousand where the gridiron has meant but a single broken bone. And then, too, how about personal pleasure? We are not here upon this earth as permanent fixtures, and a hundred years hence no one in the whole wide world will care whether you brought into your life the pleasures and joys possible, or whether you worked and worried to slave for some one else and pass away unknown. If, then, there is for your son pleasure in the companionship of athletics, let him be a recipient of what little happiness there may be thus derived, and rest in the assurance that it Avill tend to develop in him intelligence, honesty, and the red blood of health — those characteristics everv parent would fain see imbued within his bov. ?5 1 I I , ' 1 I I i i I I I I I tn X t ipBi rt anba rnm 0Inl6 When the oceans and the seas dry up And tlie fish get legs and walk, When the flowers grow best in the snow And the Sphinx begins to talk.

HINDMAN A year ago " Curley " Byrd said: " The greatest honor that can come to a college athlete is the captaincy of the foot- ball team. This is what has been won by Eddie Hindman by reason of his splendid work at tackle and fullback for the last three seasons and because he is the kind of fellow in whom others usually place their confidence. " Modestly, we would suggest that no greater luck could possibly have come to " Curley " than that which arrived as a Freshman in 1912 in the p erson of old " Heiny. " It is true that we lost the State Championship this year, but we lost it while Captain Hindman was in the hospital fretting away his big- heart, while his team-mates strove in vain to cover with one man the gap our " Heinv " so ably filled. HEINE ' LYMAN D. OBERLIN " Oby " could, if he were not so modest, honestly and con- scientiously say that during his time served in the Aggies ' line he has been of as much value to the team as any man on it — since he won ' t say this for himself we are saying it for him. Last fall Chandler Sprague, although we know he hated like sin to give us anything, had to give Oberlin one of the tackle positions on Maryland ' s mythical eleven — and don ' t you forget that there were some other tackles, too, within the boundaries of the old Monumental State in the Autumn of 1915. He has been selected to captain the team next year, and if he shows the ability to work others on the football field as he works himself there won ' t be much doubt about a successful season. ' OBY 90 T ]T nr ,. ' ' ■ ' J - ::-- ' - y---- 7 -- X ' NODIE ' TAL ' WHITNER ' KENNETH T. KNODE This One Hundred and Forty-Four Pounds of Brain, our quarterback, has for three years guided the destinies of our teams, and twice he has brought home to swell his Alma Mater ' s pride the Championship banner of the State. Kenneth is leaving to enter the University of Michigan, and we understand that last fall when he hurled his men against Hopkins at Homewood we watched for the last time his strategy on the gridiron. If this be true the admirers of football have, indeed, something to regret. TALBOT SPEER •■Tal " dropped in on us from the Old Dominion State as a Summer School student, and he liked us so well that he decided to " stick around " awhile and see what was going on. The Editor claims that he was the most valuable man on Maryland ' s 1915 eleven, and if he wasn ' t, then who was? Incidentally, he is the cleanest ])layer that has yet played on our gridiron. Give us another halfback like him next fall and the victories will be " all over but the shoutin ' . " WHITNEY J. AITCHESON A Sub-Freshman, he fell in love with the gridiron. The next year he beat " Pop " Koehler, a Senior, out of his job at Center, and for his service since he has for four consecutive years been awarded the highest honor we could give — a football " M " at each Christmas dance. On the field " Whitner " has played a consistent game, the kind of game whose echo will resound for him down through the future years, when he is playing in the great, competitive game of life. 91 ON THE GRIDIRON Srattts l t i txB 5ftx M. A. C, November 27th. Dear Dad: Thanks for that check — it was a Hfe-saver. Football season was over yester- day, you know, and last night we broke training. Believe me. Dad, it was some Ijreak — we broke everything in this old town from champagne bottles to moving picture shows, and now this morning we ourselves are broke. ikit, fond parent, had you seen your fathers ' son in that game yesterday, little things like twenty-dollar bills wouldn ' t worry you today. We were playing our old rivals, you know, and they are about as dirty a bunch of bums as ever took a chew of tobacco — they must be blacksmiths and bartenders, for some of them were as tough as mules and others nothing but great hunks of fat. I ' ll tell vou about it: The third quarter ended with no score. But lucky " Yc Godsl Honestly, those greasy bums have a brand of horseshoes that ' s worth something. Cigarettes and beer will out, though, you know, and in the last quarter we got to ' em. We kicked oiT ; their Fullback caught the ball and, by luckily dodging both our Ends, ran it back thirty years. Then they started that dirty line- plunging and made downs right up to our ten-yard line. Everybody on the sides was whooping like mad, and yelling at us to hold ' em — we -were holding ' em, but those gilded horseshoes of theirs were too much for anything human. Right here. Pop, is where vour voung ho])eful showed his strategy, and it happened sort of funny, too. When their Quarterback gave the signal to shift, instead of shift- ing with the rest of mv team I got left standing out on one end, with nobody to guard me; then their Center (cigarettes were telling on him) passed the ball wild, and just as I ran across it bounded right into my hands, and 1 lit out. The whole grandstand rose up and was howling to me to run, and when I looked back the smallest booze-soak in their bunch was leggin ' it after me, about twenty-five yards behind. And don ' t you believe. Dad, old boy, that I didn ' t run. Why, when that little pinch of nothing tackled me I fell three-fourths of my length across their goal line. The ball bounced out of my hands (more of their infernal luck), hue one of our fellows had followed me up the field and was right there to jump on it. Then, before we could line up again the whistle blew ; the game was over, and weliad won — but never again do I want to play a team that has the luck with it that mob of coal-heavers carries around. Your diligent son, H. B. Derrick. P. S. — Can you let me have another twenty right away? You know I am a hero now, and I have to be a sport. 93 WHEN THE SNOW FALLS BITS OF CAMPUS Anspon ww ' ms ■ ■S A- T - ' y v ' Fy ' M y . yVc A laa ball ORGANIZATION Khnnkth T. KnodE Captain S. E.

KNODE Take off your hats, all you readers, to the most valual)le intielder in Marxland college circles, twice Captain of our baseball team. You probably noticed a few- pages back that he is a gridiron man, too, but it is on the diamond where Kenneth reigns supreme. He fields naturally, throws naturally, hits naturally, runs nat- urally, steals naturally, uses his head .s ' ifrnaturally, and is just " naturally " tht best we have to show. LESLIE E. BOPST ' " Les ' " undoubtedly possesses the earmarks of a baseball player, but. you know, the most reliable of criterions often portray nothing. Likely, baseball is an inherited characteristic with him, and, while it is none the less present, it lies in the latent rather than the dominant stage. At that, though, he has helped out in many a game ; and, even if he is not an in-and-out star, the practice he gets gives him a good appetite, and appetites are important. EDWIN A. TAYLOR With the persistence of a woman and the tenacitv of ]Mr. Brinkley ' s bulldog, Taylor has " worked " the Coach for a baseball suit four years hand-rimning. He is a catcher, or poses as such, and many is the time he has helped our team out by standing behind the plate and giving signals. Even so, he, like " Les " Bopst, gets the exercise of ])ractice and thus works up an ap])etite, something that Rocke- feller can ' t buv with all his millions. 98 Apprrrtattnn ELATIVE to " Individual baseball write-ups, " the Editor asks that you turn back a page and view the sour- faced a]3]jarition who, in the role of baseball team manager, posed so gracefully for the photographer. Try if you can to conceive that he also plays any position from the initial sack around to the keystone corner, and each with equal facility — since all he ever does is to stand there. Four years he has been with us, for four years " Curley ' ' has given him a baseball suit each spring, and for four years he has proven a second Mike Levin as far as any alue to the team may have been concerned. Comment is also due another Senior, whose picture doesn ' t ajjpear here in baseball suit for the reason that although the photographer made a dozen trips to locate straggling groups and individuals, on no occasion could this horse-hide phenomenon be caught in baseball attire. He came to us from the pride of Frederick County, and, what is more, he came to us as a pitcher. His catcher used three signals, one for a zviid ball, one for a pass ball and one for a bounce ball, the bounce ball being the one you have often noticed hit in front of the plate and bounce over. His name is Ralph McHenrv, better known at " Pat, " and he is the lad who so ardently declaimed, " Laugh and the world laughs with ou ; frown and vou wrinkle your face.

About two " jiffies " after the crack of the pistol Paul attains the velocity of 947 feet per second. He entered College a few years after the Civil War and soon became a member of the track squad. He can make those legs fairly fly. Not only is he a runner but also something of an aerial man, holding medals for broad and high jumping and hurdling. When Charles County takes back her loyal son " Curley " will search many years for a man to fill Paul ' s place. WHITNEY J. AITCHESON On your marks! Get set! Crack! They are ofif. Who is that big, stately fellow who is gradually getting the lead? ' Tis " Doc " or " Whitner. " " Aitchy " entered College the same year that Grace did, and the two have been performing wonders on the track As for the speed, " Whitner " is good, but when it comes to long distances he has no equal. He has the wind of a ] Iarch hare, and once he starts to run there is no way to estimate the ground that he will cover ere he stops. He has on medals enough to compete with Grace in the jewelry business. K. GRACE This Dan Patch youngster has been with us some " four-odd " vears and still that everlasting grin is with him. Yes, the same old smile, win or lose — but, no wonder, he never loses! Putting all jokes aside, " Bill " is the fastest stepper Byrd has and is likely to .hold for several vears the track records he has made. He has medals, badges, ribbons, watches and cups enough to start a first-class hock shop. If " Curley " finds some post-graduate work in the fruit line, we must not be sur- prised to see " Bill " beaming forth in another year-book. 102 J. p. BROWN This pleasant and smiling- lad is " Brownie. " You ' ve all heard of the Brownian motilit) — well, that ' s he. Brown, although he has not heen with us as long as some of the grad- uating men, has done ery creditable work. He is one of those that you hear little of but who is always there. He has done a big part in holding up the honors of this institution in both indoor and outside track work. His departure will leave a place in the track squad that it will take a good man to till.

Perhaps his watch had ceased to tick and fooled hirn, or ])er- haps the moonlight, a pair of liquid eyes, soft wisps of silken tresses fluttering against the breeze and a nestling form close to — but let us on wnth the story. Lo ! The electric light flashed on. A human monster tow- ered o ' er our hero, and in words of another world it spake : " Young man, have you a home? " " Yes ' r, " stammered Paul. " Then go there. " " Yes ' r, " was the weak res]jonse. " And stay there. " " Yes ' r, " came a feeble echo from the distant Pike. And Paul has not been back. AT THE TRACK MEET 105 MR.

The next is Bopst, with curley hair; to him dear Schultz is nice; John Bowling is the one so fair — he says: " Let " Mike " suffice. " " Jim " ' Bradley comes a-stepping up to tell us Broughton ' s place. While " Brock " says that he ' ll give the cup to " Boohoo " Spence ' s face. On comes the solemn Burlingame, and " Annie " is his pick ; Old Stanley Day ' s the next in name — ' tis " Pack-up " make him sick. Mike Erdman really beats the lot, with love for Brother W ' aite, And Ford ' s the guy who makes things hot when " Bommy " comes in late. To Griffin they are all the same, with " Catfish " for a choice; " Bill " Grace, of course, comes next by name, and he likes " Becky ' s " voice. Then there ' s " Gige " Gray (and red his crown) to tell us of " Doc Tolly; " Old Hindman is the next one down, and cusses Creese ' s folly. Now E. G. Knatz must have a turn to tell what " C. P. ' s " done. And Kenneth K. cares not a durn for ' Fessor Richardson. Big " Ferdy " Lodge was just too late to show his love for " Commy, " While " Pat " McHenry tells his hate for poor, old " Baldy Bommy. " McKenna (one more studying man) still swears at little Springer, And " Reds " McLean cares not a darn for Stoddard as a singer. Then Paul H. Morris has the luck to tell of Creese, his friend (?), And " Duke, " ' with good-old-fashioned pluck, says, " Spence, unto the end! " Next comes one Sando, holy terror, who makes " Jum " Dennis swear, Miile " Kerchie " Smith, who has no error, stuffs " Becky " full of air. A dummy, Smoot, is next in rhyme, and he, too, loves his " Beck; " John Sterling says, " Jus t for a dime I ' d love them all, by Heck! " Fred Steinmetz speaks of Creese, his friend, and we agree with him ; Yet " Sunny " swears that to the end " Henry T " the cream will skim. " Fats " Taylor is the next on roll, and " Bommy ' s " won his heart ; " Jim " Towles claims that he ' s found no hole in Stanton from the start. " Bob " Miite, the next to last on list, says Cory gets his goat — And Wilson cries, " Th ' whole blamed bunch ain ' t worth my last year ' s coat. ' ' Bob White. 118 I " p.

Reisinger y l PilS organization numbers only twenty-two members, but it harbors some V- of the leading lights of the College. By glancing at the roll it will be noted that the New Mercer is a very cosmoi)olitan society, including budding orators, experienced debaters, old and new Editors-in-Chief of both The Reveille and the Weekly, stars of the football, baseball and track teams, fra- ternity leaders, cadet officers, grangers and representative men from each College Class. The society meets bi-monthly in its room in Calvert Hall, the meetings usually being open to visitors. It is a well-known fact that very few scientific men are able to deliver an effective speech upon their special subjects. Yet. there is nothing of greater importance to the educated man than the ability to speak with facilitv in public. With these points in mind the New Mercer members have gi en during the year a series of short, informal talks upon semi-scientihc subjects. These speeches were not memorized, but were delivered from brief notes. At the close of the talk the s])eaker was expected to be able to answer reasonable questions from the other members. The honorary members have also favored the societv with excellent talks. Altogether the society feels that it has held a successful year and looks forward with confidence to the future. 123 ' J ' ' l A s ll 0 Utt rarjj nrt ty OFFICERS R. F. McHenrv President L. E.

Lodge W. Measday E. W. Thompson R. D. Watson Professor C. S. Richardson i HE literary society which had Ijeen known as the Morrill Literary Society vl was reorganized under the name of the Poe Literary Society on November 3rd, 1915. ... Excepting a few instances, meetings have been held regularlv on Wednesday evenings in the Section E society room of Calvert Hall. These meet- ings have been productive of debates, addresses, readings, recitations and other phases of literary work. Among the miscellaneous lectures presented was a series on Parliamentary Law by Professor Richardson. As all of the students were invited to attend these lectures given bv Professor Richardson, manv availed themselves of that opportunity and thereby became benefited. In accordance with a suggestion from the Faculty Committee o n Student Organizations, the membership of the society has been restricted to twenty stu- dents. As a result, the standard of the society was raised. Instead of seeking students for members as in former years, they now seek us. In choosing the most desirable, the applicant ' s interest in, and willingness to work for, the societv was considered more important than the boost of the indolent literate. What has been accomplished this year of a more permanent nature is the laying of a strong foundation for literary activity in succeeding years. As the societv room has been furnished for the expressed purpose of literary pursuits, and with the strong beginning made in 1915, the Poe Literary Society should look forward to a still more successful year in 1916- ' 17. 125 •• Agrirultural (Elub OFFICERS W.

The IVecklv is the mouth])iece of the students of Maryland Agricultural College. Its columns are impartial word-jjictures of the activities, thoughts, and life of our College, news-pictures of past, present and future happenings and those things that shuitid hai)pen. The Weekly was founded Octoher 15, l ' J14, its hirth heing due to the fact that the Triangle, a hi-monthly, had proven inade- quate for the needs of an expanding college and a rapidly enlarg- ing student body. While a well-edited paper, the Triangle had always been more or less unsatisfactory because its news was necessarily " stale " ' to the student body. The IVeekly was a success from the start. Its editorial board was composed of earnest, industrious men, who were interested in the welfare of the organ. The news came out promptly, with always a goodly percentage of articles pertaining to the future. The student body and Faculty gave the paper their support, and it has ])rospered. From time to time our paper has seen the addition of new departments and the casting aside of old. Besides everyday news articles there is a well conducted Editorial page, " Notes and Queries, " ' Departmental Column and Alumni page. The paper is published entirely by the students, under the censorship of the English Department. The editors are elected by the various classes, except the Editor-in-Chief, who is elected by the Board, composed of the Staff and Facultv Committee, for the following year. It is planned to enlarge the Weekly in the near future and also to merge it into a daily as soon as the student body is large enough to support a daily sheet. There is also a movement on foot to add a magazine, to be issued monthly, to the Hst of student publications. The magazine would be devoted largely to the inter- ests of the Alumni Association and would fill the long-felt want of such a publi- cation. The Weekly stands for better scholarship, stronger athletics, and a greater IMarvland Agricultural College. It knocks only when boosting fails. It may be called a radical publication, for its motto is " Progress. " ' It is a medium of expression for student to student. Faculty to student, and student to Faculty. Our paper believes that the best is not enough for each man to give to himself and to his College, for even the best may be made better. A ' hat more would vou have? 139 (§n SCtBStng % OjME one has said that kissine is the art of extracting honev from tuHps, and protecting the same against frost by careful massage and frequent watering. Mathematically speaking, a kiss may be defined as nothing divided by two. Experimentation and observa- tion have proven conclusively that at least two individuals are necessary in order to make kissing eiTective and desirable. How- ever, an audience is not necessary, as it merely serves to neutralize the intrinsic charm involved in the process. There seems to be no standard hour adopted as the correct time for kissing; some have suggested 11.13 P. " SI., while others prefer a later hour. Kissing is practiced in all parts of the sphere, but the best results have been obtained in canoes, on back-stairs, unlighted verandas and moonlight strolls. The best locality, however, is usually found to be the mouth. If this spot is selected and adhered to. the reward is inevitable. The procedure is very simple, }et there are certain fundamentals to be kept in mind, viz. : Choose the victim to be caressed. Establish co-operation if possible. Create a cheerful atmosphere. Discard from habitat all rolling pins and flat irons. 5. Retreat promptly when necessary. A few hints at this time to the lady involved may be advisable. If you are ever subjected to the above environment it may be to your interest to proceed as follows: First call for father if you are sure he is away. Then call for mother if you are certain she will not respond. When these summons ' have failed whisper softly and gently in your partner ' s ear, " How dare you do such an heroic act! " An encore will surely follow if your said part is properly per- formed. The suggestions applicable to the gentleman are few but important. Before kissing certain individuals it is at times mandatory that exit observations be taken in order to avoid any possible embarrassment from delayed departure. The reason so many fail when it comes to kissing may be attributed to the fact that they have not given the matter due consideration. Onlv a vague idea of the science is comprehended by one or both individuals involved. Is it any wonder that so many people are troubled with fistula of the eye, absence of teeth, or postponement of marriage? It is hoped that in the near future the science of kissing will have become an art. When this is accomplished these prevalent mysteries, secrets, and marriage postponements will vanish like the Ford behind an automobile. 1. 2. 3. 4. Phil Os ' )phi:r. 140 iitlitarg HEN this Commencement drill is over and the last note of the bugle is lost with its echo over this dear old hill, the last vestige of larvland Agricultural College as a purely military college will be but a memory in the hearts of those Senior othcers who are taking command in the great competitive drill of life. For half a century the boys who marched under old Mary- land ' s flag were soldiers from ■■Re eille " at the break of day to " Taps " late at night. Four whole years each one of them li -ed his life in time with the trumpet call, the sharp command, and that old spirit of " snap " and " vim " for which our College is famous. Four years ago the barracks, that building which constituted the College when the fathers of the present generation were stu- dents, was wiped away by fire. A new College, with new buildings rose in its place, and the dream of a greater Maryland Agricultural College came true. At first there was a movement on foot to eliminate entirely all military training, but the final decision was to devote one hour a day to " Science and Tactics. " It was a great drop, from twenty-four hours to one hour per day. Friends of the College predicted dire results, but the change in reality was much, slower than in theory. The influence of strong militarism was slow to pass away. The student of today is not essentially diflferent from the student of " Before the fire. " While his codes and customs are perhaps dift ' erent he has the same spirit deep down in his heart. He is an " ] I. A. Caesar " in every sense of the word. He is as good a soldier and student, as he would have been under the old regime. He has simply changed with his College. In practice, the same amount of time is spent in drill and the theoretical study of military science ; the dift ' erence comes in government and discipline. Today military science is a part of the curriculum, a part of the College life, instead of the whole of College and College life. That military training does much for the college man no one may doubt. It gives him method, self-reliance, physique and acuteness and quickness of thought. The call of the age is for the man who is able to pick and command men and himself. Maryland Agricultural College owes much to the men who founded the Alorril Act. " Uncle Sam ' s " training has made her sons stronger and more cap- able. And should their country need them they would each and everv one gladly march forth and defend her even as they defend their Alma Mater, her honor and her name. 142 c ' X y ' Tt-z: - :-7 - i X ' %- rgy-v -:y-f :-.-; t Sattnn ♦ I I f f yi 4 s ' ■r f t i So softly at the evening ' s close, Along this dim, gray hall, To tell us that our day is done, Comes Tattoo ' s clear-cut call. Ah ! Welcome is her ringing note Now, when the day has passed, For cares and worries all we know Are furled up in her blast. The years we ' ve harked that bugle-call But yesterday marked four ; Today that call is a silent call — She speaks to us no more. Not always were our tasks well done When Tattoo brought repose. But well she served to teach the truth That each day has its close. She ' s taught us that if we would win Each hour must do its best, For each hour speeds that final night Whence comes eternal rest. We thank her, now, and pray our God That the lesson which she gave May bear for each a life well done When gray hairs seek the grave. — The Bdito) I ' - ' ♦7: H t I I I f I t I I % ' 1 i I ' t I t ■i ' t -t }■ ♦ 1 I I ' ■i SI f f f i I I 143 n: on: a nnn DDD n Q: OQ :n THE BATTALION STAFF r ni IP c 3 El It 1 IF HIE COLOR Gl AKD 146 . 1 fe2 . fcfe J.

EXAMPLE OF SENIOR ENCxLISH Throughtout all the multitudinous vicissitudes of inconstant fortune under no circumstances allow any susquipedalian argumentation whatever to induce thee to sever the contiguity existing between the furru inous equestrian crescent and the portiere of your ancestral domicile.

Waite for their courtesy in furnishing us v ith § | the many beautiful photos of local scenery which appear throughout our book. And to the G. V. Buck Studio we wish also to extend our thanks for their generous services. With this, the nineteenth volume of The Reveille, the Mary- land Agricultural College disappears, and in her stead you shall hear of the Maryland State College. Perhaps it may be a foolish fancy, but to my classmates and myself the letters " M. A. C. " carry with them an indescribable picture of four long but happy years that will never arise in quite so vivid an image when in future years we may turn through the leaves of another Reveille and chance upon the letters " M. S. C. " We know, though, that it is for the sake of a greater Alma Mater this change has come to pass, and we shall ever strive to keep our loyalty abreast the scythe of time. Withal, we are proud to be the members of the last class to be graduated from old M. A. C, and it is our earnest hope that with the beginning of this new era in our Alma Mater ' s history her progress up the ladder of fame will satisfy even the most optimistic of her many ardent admirers. It may be customary for each departing ReveiLLE to offer a few modestly expressed criticisms, but we must refrain, for now that the hour has come when we go away from her we think on our old school in a manner best pictured by these words of Keats: " None but the Master shall praise her; none by the Master shall blame.
