Old Time his course has fully rounded, The bugle ' s blast but late has sounded. Dear comrades, friends, tho ' we must part. Let joy, not sadness, fill each heart. ' Tis our Maryland ' s spirit that fills. It is undying love that thrills ; " Tis hard, indeed, to suppress a sigh And hide the tear-drop in the eye. With hope the unknown future beams, Our youthful hopes are not mere dreams ; Our motto doth our life o ' ercasc — " Our Maryland first, our Maryland last. " But now the old things pass away, Class follows class as night the day ; We can not linger, but must sail To weather life ' s tempestuous gale. Our moorings we asunder cast. The call of Time, insistent, fast. Bids us to hasten on our way Ere breaks the dawn of life ' s New Day. This i)arting gift we leave behind, Our friends and comrades to remind Of days we s])ent at good old State — Your judgment will decide its fate. But easier ' tis to criticize Than to suggest improvements wise. You are the judge — you make the test; I)Ut friends, remember, ' tis our best. i O our instructor and friend, Professor M£fl Snowell C Dennis, vJno has worked untiringly) in tne interest of a greater Alma Mater, we, the Class of Nineteen Seven- teen, dedicate tKis volume. 10 Pholo In finrhrnrh PROFESSOR SHOWELL C. DEKIKIIS jeEVEr CL 1 Prnf Bsnr i Ijom U 01. irattta KRHAI ' S in the dedication of the Rfakille, the last and most important mark of recognition that the Senior Class of the Maryland State C(jllege can conxey, it will be well to say a few words of the man ii])on whom this tfjken of ap])reciation is bestowed. Showed C. Dennis was born at Ocean City, Md., November 0, t8()i, and receixed his early educati jn in the ])ublic schools of that i)lace. In k ) he matriculated at what was then the Maryland Agricultural College, receiving his degree of Bachekjr of Science in Chemistry in the s])r!ng of H) 2. l " ' r(jm college Mr. Dennis entered the employ of the PennsyKania Railroad as a chemist. In 1913 he acce])ted a position as a chemist with the Southern Railroad, where he was employed until Se])tember, 1914, when he was a])])ointed instructor in organic chemistry and bacteriolog - at the Maryland State College. During this time Mr. Dennis carried on graduate work at the tieorge Washington University, recei ing his degree of Master of Science in Bacteriology in the spring of 1915, and is now ])ursuing graduate studies for a doctor ' s degree. It is useless to dwell at an}- length upon the personality and ability of Mr. Dennis, for the opinion of the Class of 1917 is registered in the dedication of this issue. However, as professor of one of the most difficult of collegiate branches Mr. Dennis has pro ed himself to be a most capable instructor, and has won the friendship of all those with whom he has come in contact by his agree- able personality and interest in their student welfare. The Class of 1917 takes pleasure in dedicating its last word to Showell C. Dennis, a ]M-ofessor of the highest type, a gentleman in everv sense of the word and a man among men. 12 13 fSEVETCiCg DR. RICHARD W. SILVESTER Witiiin ihi rc.iliii ..f rarr ami woe, W ' lKia ' plcri ' -nrc ' s (iiil - cmne and go, I i.iw iidIiIc a ' k-rd it i In lift rile lite of another o ' er xmie rift! Mow iivi-A{ is he, thei!. who has fought llis whole life long that a happier thought Might bloom for each who glimpsed his smile, ' riiru knowledge gained of a world worth while . Ah, well, indeed, he serves niaid ind Who thru the world of n master ' s mind Has to his fellow being,-, unfurled ' i ' he banner of thought — kev to the world. R. C. T 14 Sr. Strljarii William g-ilupatn Bj) Thomas H. Spence ()RN near Norfolk, September i6, 1857, the son of , ' i Virginia planter and grandson of a Virginia physician, Dr. Silvester entered the Virginia Aiilitary Institute in September, 1873, whence he was graduated with honors in 1877. Having come to Maryland after graduation as instructor in mathematics and commandant of cadets at the Charlotte Hall Military Academy, he was elected principal of this school in 1885. In 1888 Dr. Silvester married Miss Lucy Lee Bowen of Prince (ieorge ' s county, Maryland. The latter survives him, with two children — Dr. Richard Lee Silvester of Baltimore and Miss Virginia Lyndsay Silvester of Prince George ' s countv. In 1892 the Board of Trustees of the Maryland Agricultural College selected Dr. Silvester as. President of the College. In June of 1907 there was conferred upon him the degree of Doctor of Laws by Washington College. On December ist, 191 2, on account of a serious physical breakdown, he resigned the presidency of the College, and in recognition of his distinguished services was made President Emeritus. On the 31st dav of December, 1916, the subject of this sketch jia sed from this life. The honor of writing the biography of Dr. Silvester for the 1900 Revf.ille came to the writer, and it is an honor nov. ' to utter these few words by way of obituary. Twenty full years of toil, persistence, ])atience and self-sacritice, all to transform neglected farms into productive homesteads — that was Dr. l ilvester ' s self-imposed task, and that was his complete achievement. Never was he thwarted by criticism and discouragement. His optimism made obstacles melt away like frost before the morning sun, and the sunshine from his own heart warmed and enthused his faculty to unwonted zeal and loyalty. Few of the Maryland State bo} ' s of T917 can recall Dr. Silvester, but nearlv 3000 of the " old boys " will never forget their " good old Captain, " for his work with them and for them was the greatest element in their develoi)ment into men. His fireside was a haven for all. No one, from ranking professor to lowly prep, ever left his threshold without being inspired by his goodness and help. The community was better for his participation in public council, and the neigh- borhood made sweeter by his exemjilary private life. The appended resolutions of the faculty, from the ])en of Profes or W. T. L. Taliaferro, constitute a just mead of praise upon the life achievements of this great and good man : Whereas, on the 31st day of December, after a long and distressing illness. Dr. Richard W. Silvester passed from this life and entered into the " Silent Land, " and 15 Whereas, Dr. Silvester was President of this Institution from 1892 to 1912; therefore, be it Resolved by the President and Facnhy of the Maryland State College of Agriculture, in meeting assembled, That it is fitting and proper at this time that this Faculty, many of whom served with President Silvester during his in- cumbency, should in formal manner bear testimony to the high character and ability of Dr. Silvester as a man, and the splendid physical and moral achieve- ments accomplished by him as President of the Maryland Agricultural College. Becoming President at an opportune period, when the passage of the second Morrill Act gave to the College for the first time a working income, he was quick to realize the opportunity, and threw all the force of a strong and vigorous personality into the development of the Institution along the lines he deemed most profitable to the students under his government and to the people of the State. Buildings arose, instructional facilities increased, the student roster swelled and, reaching beyond the campus, the influence of the College was felt in everv part of the State. The introduction of engineering courses into the College curriculum, the organization of the Farmers ' Institute Department and the establishment of the State Horticultural Dejiartment were among the first and most prominent demon- strations of the initiative and energy which Dr. Silvester threw into his work, and of the strong support which he gave to his Faculty. Yet these de velopments were but the results of a moral revolution which had been wrought by him and his co-workers in the popular sentiment of the State, converting it from an atti- tude of hostility and distrust to one of confidence and i)ride. To every department of the College Dr. Silvester gave jiersonal attention and loyal support, discriminating only as seemed in his judgment for the best interests of all. In the student body his interest was })ersonal and cordial to a marked degree, embracing not alone their physical and mental training, but also and especially their social and moral growth. This care was well repaid in the higher tone which was developed in student morale. Human frailty and disease arrested Dr. Silvester at a time when he should have been best prepared to carry on the great work to which he had devoted his life, that as a technical school the Maryland Agricultural College should become the most efficient factor in the advancement of his adopted State by the scientific training of her citizens to develop her vast natural resources. Yet not in vain did he sacrifice the golden treasures of his health and strength. He laid a foundation broad and deep upon which may yet be realized the ideal which through many bitter trials and disappointment gave him ever inspiration and strength. Resolved, That these resolutions be spread upon the Minutes of this Faculty, and that a copy of them be sent to Mrs. Silvester. 16 iSEVisfLL i ®Ij? mh mh lljp Nfui HE old College has passed on. It served its j urpose well. Its purpose was but to pave the way for the advent of a stronger, and better, and more useful institution than itself. T t old — the Maryland Agricultural College — was merely the infant of the College that is now growing and developing into manhood, and which will soon be the leader of our State and the educator of its children. Every great man had a childhood. It was so with the Maryland State College. There is nothing more com- forting in old age than to have pleasant recollections of a clean, useful childhood, and it will ever be thus with our Alma Mater. Her infancy was spent in honest and useful endeavor, a never- failing balm to maturity. Every child must grow up, every rosebush must produce a bud, and that bud will slowly develop, until finally the mature flower bursts forth in all its glory and splendor to fulfill the part for which it was placed upon this earth — to make the dreary spots a little brighter and to give new vigor to some weary wanderer along the path of life. The Maryland Agricultural College developed step by step, until finally the bud was no more. In its place we have the full-grown flower. When we stop and look about us we realize how great has been the change in our dear old College in the last ten years. She has grown in size and scope of work. Ten years ago the Maryland Agricultural College was small and comparatively inefficient. The student body was by no means as large as it is today, and the Faculty has increased twofold in the last ten years. The " old days " are pleasant to talk about, but, compared to the easy life the students now lead, they were far from ideal. We, who have only three hours of drill a week and inspection of the dormitories once in seven days, cannot imagine jumping out of bed in the morning, i)utting on uniforms and going through ten minutes of " setting-up " exercises before breakfast. That was the life of the " old days, " and for the " old College " it was a good one. The entrance requirements for our College have been raised until she stands on an ecpal footing with any college in the United States. The curriculum has been remodeled and the work so increased and perfected that a student who graduates from M. S. C. is equipped to make his way in the world in competition with the graduates of any other educational institution in the United States. Due to the more advanced entrance require- ments, the average age of the students has been raised, which has made possible the Proctor system of control in the dormitories. Students are being allowed 17 sr „ jeEVE t Cg 1 more and more liberties, and it is expected that in the near future even the Proctor s} ' stem can be dispensed with. Along with the steady increase in the usefulness and efficiency of our College has gone increased success with our athletic teams. Only a few years ago teams from the Maryland Agricultural College went through season after season and seldom met any college team from out of the boundaries of Mary- land. Last fall State ' s football team went through a schedule that would have been a credit to any so-called secondary college in the United States, and came home with colors flying. In one of the most brilliant football games ever staged in Maryland, the State championship was decided when State ' s wonderful eleven merely toyed with the touted Ho])kins ' team and rolled up fifty-four points to her credit. This success is not merel}- a transitory thing. Our athletic teams have been rapidly developing year after year. In the near future the new athletic field will be completed, and we will have a stadium as good as any in tlie South. The student body is increasing rapidly, and every indication insures the success of future athletic teams at Maryland State. Calvert Hall is the beautiful new building which has rc])laced the old dor- mitories, destroyed by fire in 191J. Although the fire (jccurred the year before ihe Class of iQi entered College, we feel that the fire was somewhat of . ' j " blessing in disguise. " The building ve ha e now is worthy of the new College, while the old barracks were sadly inadecfuate. The new Agricultural Building will fill a long-felt need, and when it is ccjmpleted the efficienc} ' of our College will be greatly enhanced. Surely the change has been great. We are only beginning on the new era of our College, and e ery pros])ect is bright. We have a better College, a larger Faculty, more students, greater athletic teams and an enlarged scoi)e of work. The beginning of the Maryland State College is indeed an auspicious one. We believe in her, and feel confident that, as the years pass on, we will feel prouder and prouder of our Alma ] Iatcr and her sons. At the birth of the new College, and with our hopes and aspirations for its future, let us not forget the old. Let us ever bear fervently in mind the memory of the Maryland Agricultural College, and may Maryland State be a worthy son to that dear old College which, in name, is no more. 18 Ifuxmtll " M. A. C " Farewell, " Old " Maryland, a long farewell ! Farewell, dear Alma Mater, kind and true; Though we have ever loved thee long and w ell. We must to thee now bid our sad adieu. Some whisper that thou now art of the past, Vith cherished hopes forever left behind. Not so ! For thy sweet lessons hold we fast, Thv treasured memories around our hearts we bind. Thy glory, uncontined by Old Line State But by thy sons proclaimed throughout the land, From Plymouth Rock to wondrous Golden Gate, Is sung by those who ' round thee take their stand. And never shall the sun ' s bright glory shine Upon the end of our belov ' d M . A. C. Until the last devoted son of thine Has crossed life ' s wild and restless sea. The College old regime has passed away; But straight upon the ashes of the old Flas flamed the dawn of a far greater day, I ' he destiny of Maryland to mold. Allegiance to the new we gladly bear ; But toward the visions of the olden days — The glory that was M. A. C. the fair— We backward turn our still enraptured gaze. Farewell, then, Alma Mater, ever dear! Whate ' er thy fate may be, in weal or woe. We pledge our hearts fore ' er to hold thee near, Thy strength and shield to be from every foe. 19 i tcg Q l}t Nnu Agrintltural Iml tug The continued rowth of the College, and the increase in the enrollment of students desiring to study agriculture, have long since rendered the present facilities and quarters of the Agricultural Department inadequate. A separate and modern Agricultural I ' uilding has, therefore, become one of the pressing needs of the College. The new Agricultural Ijuilding now being constructed at a cost of nearly v i 70,000 is, when completed, to be u]) to date and modern in every respect. It is to be a three-story, iire])roof structure of brick and stone, and will be situated between the Engineering Building and the Boulevard, and in line with the Chemical and Engineering Buildings. The building forms an " H, " with a large auditorium constituting the horizontal. It will furnish adequate accommodations for the teaching of all phases of agriculture, and includes a large stock-judging pavilion, which may also be used as a drill hall and temporary gymnasium. It is to be hoped that this is but the first of many buildings that will be erected on the camjjus in the near future. 20 sr „ EVE iLCg Inarft nf ©ruat a SAMUEL MOOR SHOEMAKER Mr. Samuel M.

PATTERSON (iur S tirtng J r aib nt OR. PATTERSON is a native of Pennsylvania, and a graduate of tlic Pennsylvania College, from which institution he received his degree before he was twenty years old. After graduation he came to Maryland, where he accepted a position as chemist at the Experiment Station, which position he held for ten years. Since then ne has been Director of the Experiment Station, and has always shown a lively interest in all matters pertaining to the advancenwnt of agriculture in Maryland. In December, 1913, he assumed the duties of President of the Maryland Agricultural College. He found conditions none too favorable when he took the helm, but in 1917, as he turns over to another the leadership which he assumed only at the repeated requests of his many friends, he leaves the . gricultural College of Maryland on the highway of success. Besides his duties as President of the College and as Director of the Experiment Station, Dr. Patterson has always taken an active part in scientific matters and especially m those concerning the development of agriculture in the State. He is a member of the leading Chemical Societies, of the Society for the Promotion of Agriculture, a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and a member of the Society of Chemical Industries of London. For the last four years Dr. Patterson has lal)ored under an unusually heavy burden and under many difficulties, but despite these handicaps he has accomplished much. He nas seen clearly the agricultural possibilities of Maryland, and realized that they could be best developed through the building up of her Agricultural College to the highest point of efficiency. If he has not realized his greatest ambitions for Maryland ' s advancement, it is due to no fault of his own. We understand that he intends to devote his entire time to the work of the Experiment Station, and he deserves the confidence and good wishes of the people of the State. 26 jeEvieTCz: o DR. ALBERT F. WOODS R. ALBERT F. WOODS was born in Illinois, December 25, 1866, bis father being a well-known stock specialist. After being gradnated from the University of Nebraska he became an instrnctor in the Botanical Department of the University, and at the same time took np post-graduate work leading to a Masters degree. In 1893 he was appointed to the position of Assistant Chief of the Division of Plant Pathology of the United States Department of Agriculture. In 1905 Dr. Woods was selected by the President to represent the United States in the founding of the International Institute of Agriculture at Rome. He was, the same year, designated by the President to represent the United States at the International Botanical Congress at Vienna, Austria. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, a member of the Botanical Society of America, of the Washington Academy of Sciences, and of the American Society of Agronomy. He is also a life member of the National Farmers Congress and, tho last, to Marylanders not the least, a member of the Eureka Chapter of the State Grange of Alaryland. Since 1910 Dr. Woods has been at the head of the Agricultural Department of the University of Minnesota, and acting president in the absence of the Executive. On July I, 1917, Dr. Woods will become President of the Maryland State College, and Maryland is extremely fortunate in securing such a man as Dr. Woods as the executive head of her Agricultural College. He is a man of untiring energy, and his efforts in the past have met with no small measure of success. It seems that dreams are coming true ; our hopes are at last to be realized. With Dr. Woods at the head of the State College, supported by a loyal alumni, and by die people of the entire State, we expect to see the Maryland S ate College, carrying with lier the best interests of the people, advancing by leaps and bounds, until she is second to no land-grant college in the country. 27 j EVE zx: i:z FACULTY jSEVE CjLg i:r ( ffir ra an Jarultg nf inatrurttDit FACULTY AND INSTRUCTORS H.

He has had all the advantages that education and favorable surroundings can give, and the right use of his pcnvers is a duty he dare not shirk. P ut it is not enough that the college man be a successful, honest, business man ; he should be also an acti e, intelligent, and constructive citizen, losing no oppor- tunty to advance the well being and the economic welfare of his communily and 34 ALUMNI OFFICERS gEVETL rS 1 QIIjP Bntits of tl]r AUimnUH— Concluded state. He should take an active part in all public matters, participate in discus- sions, and hel]:) with his superior training to mold an intelligent public opinion on all matters and activities of general interest. The Alumni of the Mar}-land State College of Agriculture, appreciating the opportunities they have had, with a desire to do the State the service hich thev owe, and realizing that Maryland has i)ractically the most inadeciuately-equi])ped state college in this country, are giving their efforts to the betterment of the Insti- tution that the educational facilities of the State may meet the needs of her people. This is a great and worthy work. It appeals alike to the oldest and the young- est graduates, all of whom have worked for the past four years to lay the founda- tion of what they hope will one day be a great college in every sense of the word — a college whose influence will be felt in all i)arts of the nation, in every walk of life. All of us have had dreams about the College. We, of old M. A. C, and you of the new M. S. C, all look forward to the time when, on returning to the College, the College will be crowned with adequate, attractive buildings, filled w ith a thousand hapi)y, earnest men of Maryland, each of whom shall lia e more to live for, more to enjoy, more to do, and a larger part in the affairs of the State because of what he got at College, i)artly through our efforts. Can we who have preceded you, and you men of 1917, do an tbing more worth while, can we do anything which will ai)peal more stirring!}- to each and all of us than to lend our best efforts to see that the State provides for our succes- sors, our children, and their children the facilities it never provided for us? Nor does our duty stop here. We must take a personal, a direct and intelli- gent interest in the work of the Ccjllege. We must see that it is doing its work well and thoroughly and in a manner that will fit her sons morally, mentally, and physically to be strong citizens. We nnist see to it that all college activities are chose that make men, men ready and willing and able to meet the duties of life and dieir country ' s call. The influence of the Alumni ui)on the student body should be responsibly heli)ful, always looking forward. Let us help them to accomplish more and to leave undone some of the things that we did. Let us heli) develop a broad and deep spirit of unselfishness and patriotism. Let us not be neutral, but forceful, upstanding Americans. The Alumni Association is twenty-four years old this June. It has set itself a man ' s task : The completion of the work begun by the public-spirited founders of ihe Maryland Agricultural College; the development of a State College second to none. Let us help to the uttermost. " So nigh is grandeur U (Hir dust. So near is God to man, When Duty whispers low, ' Thou must, ' ' J ' lie _vouth replies, T can. ' " 36 C L Larse ty. MISS GRACE E.

P romley, the military genius of M. S. C, known around the campus as " Jawn. " On his arrival at M. S. C, Jawn entered the ranks of A Company, and since that time he has been everywhere from high private in the rear rank to Captain of his Company. Way back in his rat year. Jack made a home run on Hoot Smith ' s " wharf rat " team. He never recovered from the shock sufficiently to continue his athletic career. One of J;iwn " s chief ])leasures is to sing praises of Mike Creese and tell yarns about Chincoteague Island. He is especially interested in electrical engineering, and we will not be at all surprised some day to hear that P romley has succeeded in generating electricity from old cigar buts. A few months ago Jack underwent an opera- ti m at one of the Baltimore hospitals. Since that time he has spent many of his week-ends in Baltimore, and it is the opinion of many of us tliat in spite of his superior military accomplish- ments, he is arranging terms of surrender with one of the fair nurses. We are glad that Jawn is graduating with us, and herewith express our sincere hope that he will strike pay dirt out in the wide, wide world. 40 LOREN BURRITT Washington, D. C.

" Thoroiigluicss is the key to success. " ; URRITT or " Baldy " ha.s the gift of srasF pbophecy. He can tell what the weather is going to be more accurately than the Gov- ernment Weather Bureau can. But what is the value of a prophetic vision to a person who always peers into the future through smoked glasses? Some one coined the motto: " Laugh and grow fat. " Burritt. however, worries and seems to thrive in so doing. So far as is known his only legitimate cause for anxiety is a tendency toward an increasing scarcity of hair on the cranium. But, why not view the matter opti- mistically and console one ' s self with the reflec- tion that many an infant fly will rejoice at each additional roller-skating rink ? Burritt has certain avocations which afford him more pleasure than the art of prognostication. He is fond of music and enjoys playing the piano. Most of the students, however, are wont to asso- ciate him with the cymbals. In this connection he will probably be rememl)ered by Seniors long- after most of their classmates have lieen forgot- ten. Most men have a veneer to mask their emotions. Burritt lacks this protective covering. However, he is in the happy condition that he needs no veneer of any kind. For this reason, and be- cause of the persistent, industrious, and pains- taking effort with which he undertakes every task, he may e.xpect the success which his class- mates desire him to achieve. f fx. 41 IRVIN COGGINS Washington, D.

" iw E ALL have our idiosyncrasies, but " Javvn " j {_ has the most oeculiar of any one known. Can the reader imagine this quiet, docile, distinguished countenance belching forth even the slightest profane w ord? It is really unimaginable; for when Jawn hears a mere " damn, " Oh, my ! he hurries from that immediate vicinity and joins less violent companions. But enough of his idiosyncrasies. Perhaps the reader has heard the story of a certain strong man who nunxlered a lion with the jaw bone of an ass. This strong- man has nothing- on Donnet. Donnet ' s argu- ments, his alibies, just have to be listened to, and by listening to said arguments, his hearers are killed morally and numbed physically by accents, deep-throated and rare. The Biblical strong man has nothing on Donnet. But let ' s put a few good words in for him. Like several other good men around these parts, Jawn was graduated from the City College of Baltimore. He came to M. A. C, and with the aid of his fiddle he had a " helova " time getting off conditions. But somehow or other he man- aged to get the High-Brow class, and in this class he worked HARD. But then, a fair Jane came across Jawn, and great was the fall of Mr. Donnet. Thesis work necessitated his going to Baltimore every few weeks, — but the fair Jane lived in Baltimore also ! And he was once a woman- hater ! It sure is wonderful what a few years of college will work in a fellow. Donnet is a worker, — when he wants to be, — l)ut the brown weed has a heavy drag with him. Cut out the dopes, Jawn, and we ' ll predict a great future for you. 45 CLARENCE GERVASE DONOVAN Washington, D. C. Che.mistkv So lioiiimr ] ' ctir — Soplioinure Kditur. M. A. C. Weekly.

At this time, bugle and paddle were the ruling powers around the campus, and from all accounts Duby recei ' ed his share of both. Although Bernard was lirst gi en a glimpse of this old world in Catonsville, he spent the greater ])ortion of his early life on an luotern Shore farm. Duby is a member of the . nimal Husbandry section of this class, l ut we are all afraid that he has missed his calling, ilis natural tendency is to ask foolish f|uestions, and it is the universal ()l)inion of all that he should have taken a college course in " Foolish Question Asking. " Leap year had the well known ctifect upon our young friend, for soon after the beginning of the year, Duby zealously started a Two-Four Calico course at Branchville. This course consists i-if writing four times during the week and calling twice. Since the evenings set aside for calling are the practical periods of this course, Duby some- times has to i)ut in an extra jjcriod Tir)w and then.

When Bugs first saw the light of day in Savage, Md., he started to write, both poetry (?) and prose; and since then has run true to form. Graduating with high honors from the Savage public schools (this much we must assume), the precocious youngster, at the age of nine, wrote an essay on " How to Skip Classes, " and a lengthy pamphlet for distribution among the students of M. S. C. entitled: " The Use of the Pony in Passing Exams. " We then find him diligently teacliing the Pro- fessors at Charlotte Hall. Later, he was induced to leave that institution and grace the lialls of the laundry barracks with his presence. Seriously, though, without a doubt, " Bugs " has a line career ahead of him in conunercial or literary fields. A good orator, one who cm write and appreciate good English, a good mixer, and with plenty of sound common sense, he has earned the plaudits and good will of the entire student Iwdy of M. S. C, and we think he will continue to be as successful when he gets out into the wide, wide world. Note: The Editor did not write this. mwsp ' " 53 DOWELL J. HOWARD Brookeville, Md.

Howard, who claims Brooke- " ille. .Md., as his liome town. Dowell had not worn his little knee breeches quite two months at M. S. C. when a certain Prof., because of Dowell ' s ability to imitate a dog, commanded Dowell: " Go to your kennel, sir. " These were the hrst harsh words that smiling little Dowell had heard since he left mother. However, this brought Dowell to ;i revenging state of mind, and l.ater he was ideiUilicd as " Gyp the Blood, " who, with " Lefty Louie. " " Pistol Pete, " and ■■ ' hitey Lewis, " were known as the four Xew ' ork gunmen. Im-oiu that time on. he has been known as " Gyp the B lood. " The Sophomore and Junior years were spent by " Gyj) the liloocl " in gliding around the floor at the " Motorman ' s lUiH " with the " dreadnaughts. " Dowell was also an ardent devotee to the Taxi- cab. In the sunmier Dowell has a " summer girl, " but is " steady " in the winter. His greatest disap- pointment of his College career came in his Senior year. He went home for his Xmas vacation, only to find his " steady " sick in bed with the measles. The greatest lesson Dowell received at College was, not to buy any more shaving brushes at the United 5 and 10-cent Stores. 54 WILLIAM M. KISHPAUGH . . . Harrisburg, Pa.

Agricultural Education, several courses in derman, under ' ' Honker ' s " esteemed friend. Dr. S|3ence, and, lastly, matrimony. We are inclined to believe the last will prove tbe most beneficial for Kish, since he needs a better half sadly, llats off to Ivish, for he is the first on the ' t rosier to enter the matrimonial circle. We didn ' t know he had such good taste, either. Here ' s hoping the other mem- bers of ' 17 will follow suit shortly, .and may their selection lie as near as possible to the perfect taste of Wm. M. This spring when a teacher was needed in Frederick County High School, Kish had the honor of being selected from the Senior Class to lill the position for the remainder of the year.

As he was not with us to share in the process of being hazed, a few of our number took it upon them- selves to show him what he had missed. But he took it all in good part and showed himself to 1)0 the good sport and good fellow that he really is. Kink is one of the Baltimore parasites that infest our old Alma Mater, and after graduating at City College he came to M. S. C. and enlisted in the chemical section of the Class. Besides specializing in chemistry, Fcrdi is taking special lessons in driving an automobile with one hand. Still he can ' t exactly be blamed for that, since the fair one is nearly always on the front seat with him. Kink is a very busy man around college. Ac- cording to him, the greater portion of his busy life is spent in visiting the post-office. Aside from receiving letters from and sending letters to Baltimore, Kink has very little time left for anything except frequent week-end trips to that wonderful city. By the time June rolls around, we all feel sure that Ferdi will be ready to take degrees, not only in chemistry, but also in correspondence, auto- mobile driving, and long distance telephoning. Here ' s to you, Kink ! We all wish you luck. 56 CHARLES LARS LARSEN. .Long Island, N. Y. Horticulture freshman Ycar—Vr ' v .e at Maryland State Fair, judging cattle.

" ® AY BACK TN 1913, when the Faculty and students received the first shock due to the appearance of Mr. Larsen on the campus, it was resolved then and there that never, so far as any one there knew, had such an elongated, slatternly piece of humanity been seen or heard of around the College grounds. And right there, before the first efifects of his appearance had worn oflf, originated the cognomen under which Lars was to continue his existence — " The Lanky, Long- Legged Daffodil from Long Island. " If the gentle reader will kindly focus his optical neurones (see Professor Bomberger) upon the line of printed matter directly underneath our hero ' s name, he will find written there the omnious word which denotes our loved one ' s future occupa- tion. We say future, because, as Professor Anspon will readily testify, it most certainly has not been in the past four years. During this time, Charley has been chiefly engaged in col- lecting shoes for the Riverdale shoemaker, selling tickets, writing themes for Professor Richardson, and giving advice to the lovelorn, namely, Burritt, as to the conduct of his love affairs. Yes, we repeat, as a horticulturist, Lars is certainly an excellent skater. Lars, or Charles, as he is affectionately designated by a young lady of Riverdale, has a great ambition to marry some heiress, so that he may live in peace and comfort during the rest of his childhood, and later in his youth and old age. Go to it, Lars, we ' re with you until you chance upon some rash damsel from St. Eliza- beth ' s who fulfills the requirements. For, as those who know you will readily assert, your straight- forwardness and good-nature make you deserving of all that comes our wav. 57 I % ' t % p. M. NASH Washington, D. C.

He has snitTed all the udors from chloroform to hy- drogen sulphide, and he expects, within a-.short time, to he the recipient of a doctor ' s degree from the Sophomore Class fur the invention of an im- proved form of " Rat " liiscuit. " P. M. " is well ad;ii)le(l for employment in tlie chemical industries. In fact, he would probahly pas.s a lighted match to a friend over the top of a keg of exposed gunpowder without a tremor. The evidence for this statement lies in the fact that he can walk up the path with the " co-ed " and manifest a greater degree of sangfroid than any (itlier man in college could display under similar circumstances. Xasii is not in sympathy with Company " D " . lie thinks that org;iniz;iliiin ought to be dis- banded on tile grounds that it is not prepared for nnlitary duty. . lthough " P " is, in general, well satisfied with the chemical course, he realizes that it is deficient in one particular. — It does not include sufficient instruction in ])s chology to enable a chemist who is in search of employment to make the most efYective presentation of his qualifications before the man of wlK)m he seeks employment. This defect in the chemical department will probably be remedied in lime. In the meanwhile he may accept wdiat assistance the .Senior Class can give l)y mental telepathy. 58 LYMAN D.

The old dormitories had just been burned to the ground, and military discipline had given way to the less rigid mode of student control. Under such circumstances it was natural for the " Rats " to shiver in apprehension of the unrestrained coercive measures of the Sophomores. We felt as if we were the Pilgrims, just landed on the desolate rock of Plymouth, with the cold spray cooling our spines, the raging sea striving to grasp us, and hostile Indians with bended bows lurking behind every rock, bush and tree to destroy us. Even if our fathers suffered more than we when it was necessary to apply corporal punish- ment, there was no reason to suppose that a good strong paddle in the hands of a ruthless Sophomore was more susceptible to pain than the hide of an afflicted " Rat. " Well, as the impending doom remained suspended, like the sword of Dam- ocles, within a short time after the first feeling of terror, each humble " Rat " began to lift up his head and stride more boldly. Then the dreaded calamity overtook us. Peremptory orders were issued requiring the presence of each " Rat " in the smoking-room at a definite time. We went, ran the gauntlet, were kicked out, and had no desire to go again. At last the days of serfdom were ended. " Rats " had metamorphosed into " Sophs. " So sincere was our joy on this occasion that it was generally agreed to mitigate the sufferings of the forlorn " Rats " who succeeded us. Good intentions are all right, when judiciously employed, but we made the mistake of being too tolerant towards " Rats, " who were born to be lucky. As a result, we let them drag some of the best athletes of M. S. C. through the muddy waters of Paint Branch. We can never forgive ourselves for the slipshod manner in which we managed those audacious " Rats. " However, we imposed a badge of servitude upon them in the form of green caps. This was a novelty at the College, but the desirability of the innovation was established by the fact that those " Rats, " who were first subjected to this form of distinction, later contributed their efforts to perpetuate it as a custom. It was in the Sophomore year that the Strongback Club was organized. This club has many of our classmates enrolled as illustrious members, and it is believed that when the Class of ' 17 graduates the worthy organization will be forced to dis- band on account of a scarcity of able leaders. Such a contingency would be a Continued on Page 75 73 THE PRIDE OF SEVEMTEEN jseyes:x§ 1 cause for deep regret, for the society has performed efficient service in its humble sphere. The succeeding year in class history was rather uneventful. All of the aspira- tions of the class were involved in the determination to give a better " Junior Prom " than had ever been given in the history of the College. It was, however, an ex- ceedingly difficult task to make the preliminary arrangements for an enterprise that was to be conducted on so large a scale. For a time the Treasurer was given reason to infer that all of the members of the Junior Class had joined the Strong- back Club. But at last the preparations were completed, and the reward of arduous labor was realized. The entertainment was a grand success, and it was generally admitted by those who attended to be superior to previous functions of that nature. The decora- tions, the music, the refreshments and the manner in which the afifair was con- ducted were well calculated to invoke a spirit of festal joy. Of course, with so many members of the Faculty present, there was no opportunity for an excessive indulgence in pleasure, but, by some perversity of fate, every Junior who attended the dance was unable to study properly for several days afterwards. With the beginning of the Senior year a great change has taken place in the members of our class. They quarrel among themselves as readily and vigorously as ever, but they seem to feel the shadow of the sorrow to be caused by their dis- persion, which the rapid flight of time has brought uncomfortably near. We have already experienced regrets of this nature. The blighting elTect of matrimony has been felt by the Senior Class. The wedding bells tolled for poor " Honker " while no loyal classmate was at hand to save, and when he showed up later, no longer a free man, he endeavored to conceal the knowledge of his bond- age. Now he is gone. We greatly deplore the untimely departure of our fellow- classmate, and we shall miss his genial smile as we gather for class exercises. Recently there has been a serious attempt to effect a moral reformation of the entire Senior Class. " Jawn " Donnet was the first convert. Williams, however, remained obdurate. He refused to deny himself the i)leasure of questioning the professor when the rest of the Seniors were anxious to get information as to what was the nature of the questions that would be asked in the examination. As this article is about to go to the press dire tidings have been received. The " Commy " intends to give a written examination at the end of the school year. The casualty list is bound to be high. Company " D, " otherwise known as " Bryan ' s . rmy " , will perish to the last man. Company " D " will fight U) the last ditch, but the laws of fate are inexorable. As we review our class history we are compelled to admit, although reluc- tantly, that we have obtained very little distinction with respect to literary achieve- ments. This admission is especially grievous because there are, among us, men who are capable of accomplishing much in the realm of literary activities. Continued on Page 76 75 jeEVETCX 17 As a diversion from study, this class lias been more interested in athletics than in anything else. (Jur athletes have won laurels in football, baseball and lacrosse, and the absence of these men is likely to be felt in the succeeding year. Oberlin, Derrick, Kishbaugh, Tarbutton, Coggins and Williams have done good work on the football team. Derrick, Dearstyne and Oberlin have performed with equal credit on the baseball team. Gray. Coggins and Tarbutton have done well in lacrosse. Every member of the class is proud of these athletes, for we know that they represent the type of man that is demanded for the maintenance of high standards of honor in American sports. Captain Oberlin has ably managed the football team throughout a season in which it has established a record which no football team of M. S. C. has equaled. Captain Derrick will manage the baseball team ecjually well. and. we hope, with like success. As our class is about to depart, it observes that M. S. C. is preparing for a more glorious future. The Class of ' 17 desires that those students in the other classes that are to remain here a while longer may lind their sojourn as pleasant as ours has been. For ourselves, we only wish that we may so live as to reflect credit ujjon the institution to which we owe so much.

( )f the more than 50 members of our S()])h()inore year, only 3 S attained to the dijji ' nity of Juniors. Even of these, se eral found difficulty in getting oft " their Sophomore and I ' reshnian conditions, and were several weeks late in enter- ing. ( )ne nieniher of our class had gone to the Mexican border as a militiaman, and when he returned found that his fellow-engi- neers had ])enetrated too far into the mazes of higher mathematics for hiiu to fol- low them, so we wish to here record that though l " uhi-man dropped from the Class of ' ]8. it was through no fault of his. Iveviewing. as is customary, the Junior events of the year of " 16- ' 17. the athletic achievements oi Juniors stand out ])rominently. Two Juniors were mem- bers of Maryland State ' s jihenomenal football team, which swept the State and cleaned up Johns H()])kins to the tune of 34-0. Posey, best guard in Maryland, and Rich plaved regularh ' , while Arthur and I ' .oone l)oth contributed materially to the successful season. We Juniors were not missing in other s])orts. I 4)])ley and Kakemaim per- formed creditabK ' in track, Avhile Kann just missed placing several times. Since he has shaved oft ' his moustache, and thus removed a goodly i)ercentage of the weight he carries, we have high ho])es for him for the future. We have to oiu- credit a new organization — the Junior Animal llusbandry Club. ' Idiis noble organization was formed in the first term, and has since fol- lowed its high ideals with commendable fidelity, holding weekly meetings where the members of the club delivered talks on animal subjects. This clul) has to its credit the formation of a ])oultrv judging, team. This team, com])osed of (irigg. Haig and McKinley. went to the Madison Square Carden Poultry Show, and out of a number of teams ca])tured fourth ])]ace. 1 he members of the te;un did not return at once, but stayed in Xew York for the balance of the Xmas holidays, spending their time judging another variety of " chickens. " Our class has also done well in literary and scholastic matters. In the two literary societies Juniors have been prominent, and of the debaters in the annual inter-society debate one member of each team was a Junior. " Speedy " Merrill and " Professor ( ?) " Engle both put up good speeches, and Engle won the medal for the best individual debater. 82 l co 3] tcg During- the }car we developed such a large and assorted variety of wit that finally by unanimous consent a brown derby was offered as prize for the most odoriferous specimen. The competition was s])irited, and there were many con- testants for the prize. Jones " " Alexandria " Hamilton and " Wow " Carroll ' s " fire-distinguisher " ( Feuerspritze equals fire-engine) stood high in rank, but the coveted prize finally went to Day for the f(jllowing : Day — " Jones, a farmer once had a pure-white ])!g. lie named it Ink. Why did he? " Jones — " I don ' t know. Why did he? " Day — " Well, it Avas always running out of the pen. " Jones — " Ouch! Where ' s a brick? " (We might mention that Day is the i)rou(l possessor of a fountain pen.) ddie Junior year began to foreshadow our future debut into the real world. The separate courses started to diifer materially one from another, and we com- menced to realize something of the character of the work in which we were indi- vidually si)ecializing. In ])articular, several of us showed unnu ' stakaljle evidences of Avhat life work we are going to follow. Mckinley has becoiue devoted to " Annabelle " and " the Kid " and ex])ects some day to be world-famous as an expert goat-milker and an expert goat-milk analyzer; John Paul Jones aj parently is destined to discover what is the difference between a live plant and a dead one, now that he has started his l)rilliant experiments in Dr. Appleiuan ' s laljoratory, A hile l)rother Engle is headed straight toward becoming a second Xa])oleon. ( )ur class has developed a remarkable facility in breaking precedents. Sev- eral of the sections of the class have induced the baculty to change their courses so as to better meet jtresent conditions. ( )ther hoary precedents too numerous to mention ha e been laid awa}- in peace, but there is one whose smashing so far exceeds all others that they jiale by comparison. " Ditz " Rakemann gor only two conditions in the second term ! Think of that ! With the exce])tion of Dr. Talia- ferro ' s classes, he did not Hunk a single subject ! The world is surely coming to an end. War ! A dark cloud hovers over our country, and as this goes to press no man may say what vill come. W e stand back of the President in all he does, and if war does come, we members of the Junior Class will do our share. Already extra classes in military instruction have been started, and we, who will be the fust to graduate from M. S. C. as a Reserve Officers ' Training Corps, have alread y begun to fit ourselves for whatever the nation ma}- call on us to do. The spring term passed in a whirl of activity, and before we knew it we marched up the chapel aisle to take our " oaths of office " for the next year. With simple Ijut iiupressive ceremonies we received the college shield and fasces from the graduating class, and wdien we left for the summer took with us a feeling of new responsibilities to come and new honors yet to be achieved.

The Junior Class picture is in this book some- where. Look at them closely and draw your own conclusions as to whether the Prom could have been anything but a success. The ballroom of the Cairo was filled to its capacity with the Junior Class and their guests, the Seniors, and a number of Alumni. M. S. C, men presented an appearance which could not be surpassed ; and the ladies — well, we will all have to admit, as usual, that the fair sex gave more of splendor to the dance than all the Apollos in the world could have done. Those who are acquainted with the Cairo ballroom will acknowledge its beauty without decoration, but the Committee on Decoration were not satisfied with the beauty, and greatly added to the appearance of the hall. Pennants, ban- ners and flags were used by the committee, whose artistic arrangement was re- sponsible for one of the most beautiful dance halls ever seen in Washington. The feature of the decorations was the beloved old Senior flag, which so many times 85 fSEVXTClLgr 1 was raised on the College cani])us to signify another victory for the Class of ' 17 over the Class of ' 18. in the l- -eshman-Sophomore contests. Ragged edges pre- dominated, hnt the flag was still beautiful, and it made every Senior ' s heart heat with joy as he danced around the hall and gazed upon it. The programs were in the form of a souvenir, and were beautiful and useful in every sense of the word, ddie ladies " program was a neatly arranged vanity case, and the men ' s was a handy little card case. l " Jther one was worth having, and their quality will i)ermit them to serve as a memento of the occasion for a very long time. The committee in charge deserves to be congratulated for securing the excel- lent music for the evening. At ; o ' clock the foiu--i)iece orchestra struck up the first dance, and such nnisic it was! The del)utantes, ( )l)erlin and Tosey, were in- spired bv it to the extent that the ( loddess Terpsichore herself would have to start training to comi)ete with the grace that was exhil)ited In- these two f(jotball captains. The orchestra willingly res]K)n(led to encore upon encore on the con- tinuous applause of the dancers, and as a result it was 1 o ' clock when the strains of Home, Sweet Home, the tinal numljer. died u])on the air. A VIEW OF THE CONSERVATORY 86 WHEN KING WINTER RULES jeEVETCiCg ®I| ©rnubbs nf an AHBtfitant Snrtnr College Park, IMd., Dr. W. Allen Griffith, January 25, 1917. ' Otel ' Orse, London, England. Dear Doctor : I will quote you a dialogue which took place between Cadet Brown and me this afternoon, and hope you will give me your opinion on the case. Brown walked into the office during the course of the evening and said : " Arthur, I want you to tell me what is wrong with me and give me some pills. " " Very well, " I said, " how is your throat? " " Oh, it doesn ' t hurt me at all, but I just cannot eat this Mess Hall grub. " " Very naturally, " said 1. " I lave any trouble with your eyes? " " Well, " said Brown, " 1 don ' t know that it ' s my eyes, but I go to sleep every day in Professor Bomberger ' s class. Lots of others do it, too, so I guess you ' ll have some other examinations to make. " " That simplies matters. " I said, and gave him some " blue " ones. " Now, Arthur, " he said to me, " I want an excuse from drill for today. Last night I started on a theme for Professor Richardson and 1 got so interested that I worked right through until dinner today. " Recognizing a serious brain disorder, I added some " green " ones, and said : " Why didn ' t you come down earlier, so that the Commandant might have got your excuse before he went home? " " Well, " said Brown, " I ' ll tell you. I ' ve been up before the Discipline Com- mittee for the last four hours, while they were trying to decide whether I should have close confinement for thirty days or be compelled to attend one of Dr. Reed ' s English Literature lectures. This is really my first opportunity to get down. " This is a very ordinary occurrence, so I gave him his excuse, and said : " How is it you have been before the Discipline Committee? " ' T went in to the Treasurer the other day and paid in full my bill of $3.40. Air. Harrison hadn ' t seen so much dough since the State Legislature ' s appropria- tion of $15 four years ago. He called a special meeting of the Committee to see if I was trying to work counterfeits, " he said. " You ' re in dutch with the h ' aculty, anyway, aren ' t you? " I then asked. " Yes, you see I was a member of the Committee on Arrangements for the Junior Prom this year, and when we decided to charge the Faculty members $2 apiece it broke their tender little hearts. As a result only two of them turned out, and they wouldn ' t have been there if some of the Juniors hadn ' t given them tickets. They have been sore at the Committee ever since. " By the way, did you hear about the Faculty party the other night? Well, they had one to make up for missing the Prom. The student body took up a col- lection for it last week. During the course of the evening they played a game called " buttin ' in, " and Doc Tolly quit because they wouldn ' t let him be chief goat. Well, so long; see you later, " as he walked out of the office. Now, Doctor, mv judgment was probably hasty, and if I have used the wrong color pills, I hope you will cable me at once, so that I may use a neutralizing color. Very truly yours, R. W.

After winning all but one of the interclass contests in their freshman year, this class entered the new }ear full of hoi)e and enthusiasm as to what the - would do to the " Rats. " E E The class formulated the fairest set of " rat rules " ever drafted, ■ but discarded " rat cap " in favor of one made of white felt with a red visor. The class was determined to have the class colors on the campus, and it has been accomplished in this manner. About the only thing the class lacks is nerve. When it comes to dealing with the new fellows they know how to handle them, but when it comes to girls the} ' lie low, and the two co-eds go unca])ped. Is it because the}- are afraid of girls? Not at all. The class possesses one of those unique specimens of humanity, a married man, the only one in college so far as it is known, and he says that Women are past understanding, and the rest of the fellows believe him and let well enough alone. The class is well represented on the athletic tield in all l)ranches of the s ort. Jamie Smith, Rlondy Merrill, Dutch i .xt and Fuzzy Coster ha e done good work in football. Buddy and Joe and h -eddie Chichester played good ball, and when it comes to swinging that tennis racquet, Jimmie Shoemate and Bumps Buell are all there. But the most noble of all are the Corporals in the Battalion. To hear them scream out their commands is first to admire and then to worship. Feeling the absence of co-eds, the class decided to appoint certain members to act as such, namely, Madam Burnside, Virginia Conyngton and Vernon Castle. These dear ladies receive the s] ecial attention and care of the chicken fancier, Dutch Axt. The class holds a most enviable record in scholastic work. In fact, no class has ever held such a good record. There have been some, of course, who managed 92 to land conditions, but, being nobly born, they have risen to the occasion and thrown off the yoke of that tyrant, Condition. The class has some notable orators, but space will not permit their names to be mentioned here. Tn interclass contests, the freshmen have won once, and the so])homores once. The freshmen took the cane rush, and the sophomores the cross-country run. In this latter afi ' air a man practically unknown as an athlete came out ahead, Rust. Since this affair the red and white has floated over the campus. An unsolved mystery, however, is the disappearance of the Flag. This class is i bunch of peace-loving individuals, but if they ever hnd out who monkeyed with the flag, there would be but one ccnirt to a])])eal t(j. The greatest event ever jnilled off at State was the Grand Review of Rats before the spring exams. Orders were published several days before for all " Rats " to assemble in front of Calvert Hall, under arms and wearing rat caps. They were formed in squads with sophomores acting as officers. The command was then formed and marched over the campus in review. The class then received a great surprise. Miss Johnson presented to the class a flag of red and white taffeta silk with the numerals " 19 " across it. " Present Arms " was ordered as the flag was unfurled. The march was then resumed until supper time. This affair was voted the best that was ever seen at State. Individually the class has man} shining marks. Several members of the class visited New York City for the first time at Thanksgiving, and upon their return it was noticed that they held their heads pretty high, and everybody wondered why, but finally it leaked out that they were receiving special attention from the doctor for a stiff neck. It might have been contracted in the sleeper, but best authorities claim that it came from gazing at the high buildings. A certain distinguished member makes such fine lectures on growing tobacco and dehorning red-polled cattle, that the professors in these subjects give him the platform. The class was the largest Freshman Class ever registered at State, and like- wise it is the largest Sophomore Class, although only two-thirds of the class returned, and six have been dropped since then. 93 E utiJ! " ■ J 1 . _ jmjlf jm Il THE CANE RUSH fSEVE7z:x§ 12 3lnt r-QIlaHH Qlnnt Bte ' V was not until the fall of 1914 that the custom of holding inter - class contests was inaugurated at Maryland State. Previous to the inauguration of this custom, very little class spirit was shown, and comparativel}- little rivalry existed, ' i ' he puri)ose of these inter-class contests is mainly to create rivalry between the Fresh- man and Soi)homore classes, and to develop good class spirit. The first inter-class contest held at M. S. C. w-as a cane rush between the classes of ' 17 and ' ]8. Since this contest was staged rhere has always been a great rivalry between the two classes. All of the students taking part in these contests have become more ambitious, and an excellent class spirit has been develoi)ed. The contests taking place between the classes each year are a cane rush, ])ool tournament, tug-o ' -war, baseball game and a tennis match. The class winning the first contest of the year gains the right to fly its flag on the campus until a contest is lost to the op])osing class. The first contest this year was a cane rush, and was w on by the PTeshmen. The two classes lined up at each end oi the football field, and at the crack of the ])ist()l, dashed for the cane, which was stuck in the middle of the field. One of the Sophomores reached the cane first and carried it about five yards into the Fresh- man territory. The Freshmen, however, were not discouraged, but went about the work of moving the cane like Trojans, and slowl} but surely, the cane moved, until, at the end of five minutes, it had moved ten yards and rested five yards in Sophomore territory. The iM-eshmen were winners, and in a short time their flag decorated the cam])us. In a short time the Soi)homores grew tired of seeing a Freshman flag float over the cam])us, and decided to challenge the freshies to a cross-C(nmtry run. The course laid out for the race was something less than two miles. The runners were bunched for about one-half mile, and then they began to scatter, and when the goal was reached, Rust of the So])homores was a strong winner. The first ten men finished in the following order: (1) Rust, Soph; (2) Smith, J. E.— - Soph; (3) Aitcheson — Sojih ; (4) Ruppert — Fresh; (5) Clark, G. S. — Soph; (6) Stager — Fresh; (7) Wilson — Fresh; (8) Hand — Soph; (9) Atkinson — Fresh; (10) Chichester — Soph. Immediatel}- after the contest the Sophomore flag was raised. The above-mentioned contests are the only ones that have taken place so far this year, but as soon as some of the chill comes ofif of Point Branch, the two classes will line up to determine who will hit the cold water. Inter-class contests have proved a great success at M. S. C, and the interest taken in them is becoming more intense each vear. 95 jenvxTCc (dlaaa of 1920 L. AI. (ioonwix President A.

The standard for college entrance had been raised, so that the members of this class have the high- est academic standing of all the Freshman Classes that have entered this college. The members of the class are represenatives of the best high schools of the country. Ordinarily it is a difficult task to write the history of a Fresh man Class, but this is a most extraordinary class, and the task is an easy and l)leasant one. We began to make history the day college opened. Our entrance to the majestic halls of M. S. C. was most auspicious. We were gazed at — and who does not like to be admired? The Sophomore Class acted as a recei)tion committee and you may rest assured that we were well received. Soon came informal invitations that the president of the " Soph " Class would like to meet all " Rats " at the college auditorium. Probably the most interesting event of the evening was the reading of the famous " Rat Rules. " These rules were not so rigid as we had expected, but we were told to obey them implicitly. The " Sophs " ]H-oved to be charming hosts. The next day all " Rats " ai)peared on the campus demurely wearing little white caps, black ties, etc. Following the custom of former years, that of holding inter-class athletic contests between the Freshmen and Sophomores, it was announced that the annual cane rush would be held between the halves of the Virginia Military Institute foot- ball game. On that memorable afternoon, the Freshies, with grim determination written on their faces, waited for the hnal hour when they would achieve great- ness, or have greatness thrust u])on them. The Freshmen .s ' tood on one end of the football field, while the Sophomores stood on the other. At the crack of the pistol, the men charged for the cane. There was one awful five minutes of ex[)ectant waitmg. It is enough to say that the great and glorious class of ' 20 won, and a few days later the blue and gold Bag of their class floated high over the campus. The date was set for the cross-country run several times, but owing to inclem- ent weather, it was not held till the latter part of February. Many of our stars, owing to other engagements, were unable to take part. The " Rats " failed to bring home the bacon this time, and our flag ceased to enjoy the breeze for awhile. One of the most successful " stunts " pulled ofif was the " Inaugural Parade " for the benefit of the Sophomores. This was held the day following the battalion ' s .successful march in the Inaugural Parade on March fifth. Official orders were issued for the Freshmen to get in trim and be inspected by the Sophomore staff, composed of Generals, Commandants, Admirals, Majors and Adjutants, all of these important offices being assumed by capable " Sophs. " We were made to pass in review before the staff several times, present arms to the Sophomore flag and do other " humiliating " things. This afifair furnished no end of amusement to spectators, Sophomores and Freshmen alike. No other Freshman Class has contributed so many excellent men to athletics. They. are making brilliant records in all phases of college sports. We have stars that any college or university in the country might well be proud of. The personnel of the Freshman Class is so high-toned and cultured in every way, that the class compels t he respect of both faculty and student body. 100 2- _ .

" Joe " is a specialist in skipping classes, and we must con- fess we admire him in getting away with it. Whenever there is a loud noise, Becker is always there, lint this boy will settle down upon some farm, and it is predicted that the youngster will lie a successful farmer. 103 JSeveTCc ANDREW JACKSON BOYD, Washington, D.

For two long years Professor Beckenstrater has endeavored to drill into Andy ' s head the principles of fruit growing. Andy ' s chief hobbies are forgetting to come to College at least once a week, and ne er to be in the icinity of College during examination week.

He entered the Freshman Class, but ninht studying did not agree with him, and he visited the Sub-Freshman Class, where he decided that the " Twi) ' ear . ggies " were the men for him.

Just why " IMac " stayed here last summer and worked at the Experiment Station has always been a mystery, but the other station workmen say he had the habit of suddenly disappearing and " hitting " the pike for Berwyn Heights. " Mac " is also a great pool " shark " , and can generally be found in the pool room after supper, where he " trims " evervbodv that doesn ' t " trim " him. i:z n JAMES WILMER STEVENS, Baltimore, Md.

" Steve " represented his College on the football, track and lacross squads, and if " Curley " doesn ' t succeed in getting him back to lake a four-year course, there will be a missing link in his chain of athletics. " Steve " never spends a week end at College— Baltimore and the ladies are his favorite pastimes. So long. Jim. may you ever prosper. JAMES MANO SWARTZ, Baltimore, Md.

He has taken part in both social and athletic activities in the College, and has lieen a niemlier of the track team. He was one of the victors over the University of Pennsylvania last spring, and there proved his athletic ability. After " Jinnny ' s " literary ability was discovered, he was unani- mousl - elected Historian of the Class. His devoted classmates join, in wishing him a successful, bright future. 107 " SlLLS OSCAR TRAIL, Easton, Md. A(;i Ki.i.irKE Oscar is an " ' Eastern Slio " man.

He studied hard and, although usually Inisy with his hooks, he often found lime to devote lo the ladies. He has even been known lo go without supper to catch a car to town to bring a girl to ,1 dance. Oscar has alway taken an active part in clas matters, and was a member of the Student Con- ference. We hope that his future may be both happy and prosperous. JOSEPH STANISLOUS WASNEY, JR., Washington, D. C. AcKirfi.TikK " Joe " was born in the City of ' ,ivhinglon and there spent his early days, lie attended llnsine s High School, from which he came to the .Agricultural Col- lege. He makes a trip to Washington every week-end, and we all feel sure that he is in love. Whether he is in love with the i ' .owling Alleys, which he attends Saturday nights, or the girl he goes to see on Sunday afternoons, is not known. His ;Lmbition is to become manager of a large experiment farm, and the class wislu-s him the best of success. EARL J. WAYBRIGHT, Gettysburg, Pa. .ACKK fl.TlNK I hi young man is generally known to us as ■ " Wenney " . lie was a student of the Gettysburg Academy before entering Maryland State. As a student " Wenney " has worked hard, and like the rest has had narrow escapes. He has a very amiable disposition, and is a pleasant Companion with a jolly Laugh and plentx ' (jf ready wit. The Two- ' ear Class of 1917 wishes him a happy and ])rosi)erous life. 108 ®ut0-f ar (EiuBB BtBlora N September. 1916, according to the schedule, the College year 1)0 111, and with it the present class of the Two- Year Course. True, some of the fellows delayed a few days to take another goodbye from the loved ones at home. So the first week we spent greeting new arrivals, giving the hearty handshake, and hearing the cheery voice singing out, " Hello, Jim. Glad to see you back! O O O How ' s everything? " " Having settled down to respective sections, the next thing of importance was the election of class officers, and so in October, 1916, after hear- ing orations that would put Cicero and Demosthenes to shame as to the wonderful worth of the res])ective candidates, vote was taken and the present officers were elected. Although our class is rather small, it entered in s])irit into the various school activities, namelv, track, fo(jtball, baseball and literary w(jrk, and sb.owed its v(M ' th many times. It mav be noted that in the fall oi 1915 our class won the championship for interclass f(jotball. We defeated every class, with the excei)tion of the Seniors, and the reason we did not defeat them was because they had no team. Our entire class was chosen to go to J ' altimore for Maryland Veek, and here again we showed our ability. Ve graded and packed apples and advertised " Old Maryland State " to the farmers and merchants of Maryland. C)ur class is somewhat dilTerent from two-year classes of old, inasmuch as most of us are from the city instead of being from the farm. We have showed that the boys Irom the city can turn out to be just as good farmers as the " hayseeds " from the country. We are as the father of old, who told his son to try to break the bundle of sticks. " United we stand, " and all through life ' s battle we will stand together. I am sure that whenever any two of us meet again there will be the same cheery greeting and heartv handshake as of yore. Historian. 109 £3. feEVEH Lfe i:r 3 xsX f ar Agrtrultural (UlaHa OFFICERS J.

Irrnmrs (En-lEituratinual J 1 [ scholastic year of K i -i marks a new e]ioch in the history of t he Maryland State College. ( )ur College has become a co- educational institution. l- " or a number of years we liave realized that this event was to take place, but not until last year when the " ice-President in- formed us that there would Ijc thirteen and one-half co-eds at M. S. C. in the fall of K if) did wc fully realize the significance of it. bOr some tiiue there was doubt as to the accviracy of the figures and no little speculation as to what the appearance of the half would be, but as our ' ice-President had made careful calculations and quite a bit of research, we were not at all inclined to dispute his word. However, only time could solve the problem for us. . fter waiting i)atiently all the summer we found that the fates had not dealt as kindly with us as we had exi)ected. CJ)nly one co-ed had matricu- lated. Later in the year another was enrolled, but we are still short of our alloted number and, though we regret it, it seems that we must await another year to bring State any more co-eds. It is to be hoped that not luany years will have passed before the number of girls at M. S. C., as students, will have reached a size such as will justify the erection of a (Hrl ' s Dormitory. We expect to see courses in Home Economics and Domestic Science installed in the next few years, and then the people of Maryland can look to the State College for the education of their daughters as well as of their sons. Should more girls be enrolled, the College will be indeed fortunate if they are of the same refined manners and sterling character as the two now on her roster. IVc take our Jials off to you.

Kverctl, the (lc uldpiiu iii of the .Militan- Department of -M. S, C. to its present high grade of efficiency, is clue. Although he has only heen connected with the College for little over a year, the results he has ac- complished deserve praise and commendation. Lieutenant Everett entered West Point in 1903, graduating four years later as si.vty-tifth in a class of one hundred and twelve. He was then commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the 28th Infantry, U. S. A., stationed at Fort Snelluig. During his stay at Fort Snelliug, he served in the maneuvers at San Antonio for nine months, at the time of the first trouhle of the United States with Mexico. In December, 1912, Lieutenant Everett sailed for China. Fie served there with the Chinese Expeditionary Force until May, 1913. Six years of hard and diligent work was surely worth rewarding, and Lieutenant Everett received his commission as First Lieutenant, and was assigned to the 8th Infantry. He then went with his regiment to the Department of Mendanao in the Moro country of the Philippines. He was next stationed at Luzon. While at Luzon, he was transferred to the 24th Infantry and returned with it to the United States in September, 1915. The 24th was stationed at the Presidio, San Francisco. In January, 1916, he was ordered by the War Department to do duty at M. S. C. as Professor of Military Science and Tactics. That Lieutenant Everett ' s worth is fully appreciated can readily be seen by the fact that he is listed as a Captain in the latest Congressional Record. This is an honor Lieutenant Everett fully deserves. Note. — As the Reveille goes to press, we are informed that George T. Everett has re- ceived his Captain ' s Commission, and we wish to extend our hearty congratulations to Cap- tain Everett. It is but another case in which merit is finally rewarded. 122 c . EVE iLLg x HaiUtarjj 3 3h 1 S; -Mi P HE need of a great military preparedness for the protection of our country is uppermost in the minds of the people of America at the present time. The great war in Europe has scattered to the four winds all the fond hopes of universal peace. The brotherhood of man seems more remote than ever before. The United States must iire])are for what is inevitably coming. War O O O ' ' ' soon have our great country in its hideous grasp. If prepa- ration is not begun now, it will be too late. Maryland State College has been doing its bit since 1858. Year by year men trained in military science and tactics have gone forth to battle for their ])lace in the world. Now they are ready to hght for their country, and they hght for the honor and name of their Alma Mater. It is to be regretted that limited time ])revented Maryland State College from establishing a Reserve Officers ' Training School. However, beginning the next college vear, this school will be started. The student entering the Reserve Officers ' 1 -aining School, on graduation becomes a reserve officer by applying to the War Department. A reserve officer is at all times subject to be called into the service of the E nited States when war is impending. He will then enjoy the ])rivileges and remuneration of a Unitd States army officer. Aside from the value the military training of a college man is to his coun- trv, there is the value of this training to the individual. ' Tt systematically develops the body, and it educates the mind along a consistent line for the double purpose of clear thinking and effective, practical work. " This enables a man to pick and command men and himself. Maryland State College ap])reciates the great work accomplished by the men who founded the Morrill Act. Our Government ' s training has made us stronger and better men, ready, when duty calls, to go forth and fight. 123 " f •!:♦-, ' - ♦-!•♦-!- ♦-!-♦-;- ♦-!-♦-!-♦-;-♦-!-!-♦■!-♦-;- ♦-;-♦-;- MISS DOROTHY N.

' ooded being could listen to the music rendered by Charles L. and his wards without being thrilled 1) - it. Air. Strohm has proved himself a friend of the Class of 1917. He has rendered us valuable serxice on several occasions In- giving freely of his time and talent, and though we cariuot ade- (piritely show (jur a])preciation, we hold a warm friendship for our benefactor, and wish, for the sake of our yVlma -Mater, that she may l(jng have the serv- ice of such an able musician and such a wortlu ' man.

It stands for all that is best in college life, athletics, Hterarv activities, earnest collegiate work and daily Bible study. The Y. M. C. A. stands for the well-balanced man. The college activities tend to develop the mental and physical, so it remains for this Association to emphasize the spirit- ual side of college life. Through the Y. M. C. A., more than any other intercollegiate organization or activity, the student comes t(j a con- sciousness that he is a part of a great world brotherhood. The World ' s Chris- tian Student Federation, of which our local Association is an integral part, in- cludes the Christian student movements of forty-two nations. In the United States and Canada there are 1487 local student Associations, with an aggregate membership of 130,300 men and women. When a man becomes a member of the Y. M. C. A. at Maryland State College, he also becomes a part of this great world movement. Anv man of good moral standing, either student or member of the Faculty, is entitled to general membershij). The ])urpose of the y ssociation is to unite the men of the .School who seek to realize the ideals of Jesus in their own lives and characters and to furtlier these ideals in Maryland State College and the world. In order to accom]ilish this imrjiose ihe Association promotes many differ- ent activities. At the o])ening of School each year receptions and social events ])rovide a means for new students to meet and become acquainted with the Faculty and old students. Bible study classes are organized and promoted. Every student is urged to join a class, for it is through a systematic study of the Word of God that we come to know Him and His will for our lives. The mid- week devotional meeting of the Y. M. C. A. has won an important place in the life of Maryland State College. The pur])ose of the meeting is to deepen the spiritual life of Christian men and to win the uninterested to active allegiance to the Kingdom of Ciod. With its A ' aried activities and different committees the Young Men ' s Chris- tian Association offers a unique opportunity to every student who wants to make his college davs count for real usefulness. We have but few privileges to sell to our members, but we have a program of unselfish service in which we want every man in M. S. C. to enlist. You will find in the Association plan or organization a splendid opportunity to develop the best there is in you, and in doing the work of the Association you will find the highest type of college fellowship. 139 Sllt tu nit rauyr oi rici:RS J. lioMi ' .k Ri:.MSi ' .i " .K(; Master Paul V.

C. Williams, W. P. 142 ?eEVE ZX§ 1 g 0rtal SItfie at OlnlUg T is the o])inion of most college men who have made a successful start in life that a man who has neglected to take an active part in the social life at college, and whose social habits are unde- elo|)ed, will lie greatly handicapped in his attempt to succeed. Nobo(l ' knows more of the advantages and value of the social life at Maryland State College than do the graduating men. The position in college life of some of these men was the direct result of the active part taken in college society. It was through this class that M. S. C. ' s half -century-old reputation for the " jolly good time " social affairs was upheld and bettered. It would be a wise plan for the few lower classmen who are not taking advantage of the excellent oi)i)ortunities which are offered at their yVlma Mater to develop themselves along social lines, to wake up and gain that knowledge and develop those habits which will have to be developed sooner or later. The majority of men going through college never know what definite line of work they will pursue until after they have completed their college career. They never know but what the ])Ositions offered them will require that they make speeches, attend banquets, rece])tions and other functions which will test their social capacit} ' . The opportunities for the develo])ing of men along social lines can only be realized by stating the work of the organizations which tend to put the bright polish on the rough material. The Rossbourg Club, the oldest organization at M. S. C, was formed for the sole purpose of holding a number of dances each year. This club is known by thousands of the fair sex as giving them the most enjoyable time had by them at anv dance. Every student is asked to become a member of the club, and to do everything possible toward making it a success. During the season of 1916-17 the club witnessed the most successful season in its history. One informal and five formal dances were given in the College auditorium, and all but a verv small portion of the student body enjoyed at least one evening in the midst of the ])rettiest maidens ever gathered together on one occasion. The hearty supi ort given this organization by the Faculty and their wives was a noticeable feature at every dance, and a large i)art of its success this season is attributed to this fact. Although the Rossbourg Club has done excellent work in developing social men, the Y. M. C. A. entertainments, College concerts, fraternity and inter- fraternitv dances and smokers, the meetings of the literary societies and their inter-soc ' ietv debates, which were all linked in between the Rossbourg dances, have been ' doing their share of this valuable work. Hardly a week went bv which did not offer one or more o])portunities for every student to train himself along social lines. M. .S. C. can be proud of her organizations and the benefits which are being derived from them bv the majoritv of the student body. C. H. F. 143 5l!i|j!j|-! Jill III!

At the beginning of this college year it was decided by the society to meet bi-weeklv. but the great interest taken by the members soon brought about week!}- meetings. Eiterary programs are rendered at each meeting. C ' n s everal occasions members of the b aculty have favored the society wdth interesting talks, ixit the maiorit ' of the ])rograms have been rendered entirely by the student members. The programs have consisted of talks, debates, readings and other forms of literar ' work. Several times the meetings have been conducted accord- ing to the rules of the United States Senate, many difhcult problems being threshed out. The New Mercer won the annual inter-society debate held in March, 191 7, and by so doing gained the honor of having its name engraved on the silver cup offered to the society winning the debate on three occasions. Messrs. Engle and Downin rei)resented the society in the annual debate, and deserve great credit for the convincing manner in wdiich they brought forth their argu- ments. The New Mercer not only won the debate, but one of its members, Mr. M. D. Engle, was judged the best individual debater, and was awarded the alumni medal for excellency in debate. 145 H U o ui UJ O c fSHVEJCLg i:r ®I|0 fo ICtt rary S nri tg OFFICERS G.

G HAT the Poe Literary Society does not possess in niemhersliip it has in quaht . While charity has been shown in the selection of its members, the main factor is scrutiny. The constitution of the Society limits the membership of the organization U) twenty in number. Hence many have been called, but few chf)sen. Since reorganization in the fall of 1915 under the present name, the Poe Literary Society has become more and more a literary center. During this year the meetings have been characterized b ' comprhensive programs. These pro- grams have inxolved debates, ]-«resentati()n of current events, strictly !mprom])tu speaking, discussion on [. ' arliamentary ])rocedure, two series of lectures on " (jreat Men " and " Efficiency. " a mock court, a House of Representatives and addresses from the Faculty. While the Society ' s representatives lost in the inter-society debate this year, the Society considers that no criterion of its achievements. Every member has been given op])ortunity to improve his ability to speak, and all have benefited thereby. Such results are more permanent than a single exhibition of oratory from the stage. Only in future years will these inestimable benefits be fully realized, and only then, when its members have entered the great forum of life, will their training received in the Poe Literary Socitey be duly appreciated. 147 i Hg ®lir Agrtrultural (dUtb OFFICERS W.

JSeveTCC 1:7 iEarylani XnXt WrFklg COLLl ' XiE ])a|)er is the medium of news lor the college student. A good college paper should be an impartial word picture of stu- dent life and activities. College news should be given in a pleas- ing way to the student body and Alumni, and there is also a place in a good college jiaper for bits of local wit and humor. A college ])a])er is solely the property of the student body, and their views, ideas, and activities should be given freely and v ' ithout prejudice. It is along these lines that the ' Vi-:ekly has been conducted since it was founded in October, 1914. Prior to that date there was a sadly inade- ([uate little ])ai)er ])ublishe(l here at College, which did not, by an} ' means, meet the needs of the student body. The Wkekly has defects, but they are being corrected as rapidly as possible. It is the expectation of those in charge to enlarge it in the near future to an eight- page pa])er. This can readily be done, provided the student body give their unre- strained support. At present the paper is edited entirely by the students, with faculty su])ervision. This makes the paper what it should be — a real college paper, edited, managed and supported by the student body. There is no reason why the ])a])er should not be enlarged to an eight-page weekly. For many years the old Triangle was not self-supporting. It did not fill the needs of the student body, and they did not feel any concern in giving it either linancial or moral support. The Wkekly, however, has met the needs of the stu- dents, and has become a self-supporting periodical. The paper in the past has been well edited, containing much college news, editorials, and also bits of wit and humor picked up around the campus. From time to time new features have been added, each change having bettered the ])ublication. The Editorial Staff is com])osed of live, earnest men, every one of whom has the interest of the Wkf.kly at heart. These men want to see the college paper enlarged, and are making an earnest effort to accomplish that end. In the ])ast there has not been room for the proper amount of Alumni news, and the news and work of the Experiment Station could not be covered as it should, on account of limited space. The Motto of the Weekly is, " Progress. " To advance a little each year is its ambition. Its career, thus far, has ever been upward, and may it ever prosper, as a good college pajier should, through the support and co-operation of the Faculty and Student Body. H. R.

C2i feEVE iLCg 12 ' ®ur (Enarlj It is tittiiii and proper to offer as a pre- lude to Athletics a tribute to the man who has inspired our teams to vict ' rry and in- stilled within us the true meaning of loy- ah - to our Athletics. We ha e watched him rahnly and persistently strive for an ideal, for clean Athletics and fair i)iay. lAidence of his unusual ability becomes more pronounced each 3ear. At no time in the history of our College has the in- terest in sports been so marked. Faculty, students, Alumni and the peo( !e of our State have been thrilled with the victories of our teams. The Press has been unani- mous in its ])raise, and has on several oc- casions lauded the coaching system of Maryland State. The future is rich in ])Ossibilities, and with implicit conhdence we intrust the destinies (_)f our Athletics to " Curb " Wvvd. " ipar Siiff " Perhaps you wonder why such a " mug " as this appears here, but as " IJear, " oi- Ruff, as he is sometimes called, was on: of the best athletes in Maryland, it is not imprcjper to gi e him a word of recog nition. A few vears ago " liear " wa.- wearing the " old gold and black " in a manner that would do credit to any col- lege. In football he was among the best ; in track he showed his heels to many of the best men in this section ot the coun- try. Though " Bear " has not p.

Startmg tiie year with the hardest schedule ever attempted by a college in Maryland, it seemed as if the eleven would find some rough sledding; howe er, it hmshed with six icti and two defeats, the .■ak luld ha e turned (leieats Ijeing by such narrow margins that almost any kind them into victories. The team was handicapped considerablx at the beginning of the year by having its two opening games cancelled. Baltimore Polytechnic Institute and Pennsylvania .Military College, listed for the two preliminary contests, broke their contracts and State was com- jjellert to go into the games with Dickinson on October 6 and Navy October il as the opening of its season. The prospect did not look any too good, but the eleven came through, won from Dickinson in a brilliant struggle, 6 to o, and lost to Xavy by 7 to 14, in a tight which was won by the Navy on a lucky break in the first iwn nunutes nf ])lay. Following the Navy game, the irginia .Military Institute ajjpeared at College Park and in one of the most brilliant coiulicts of the year lost to Slate by y to 15. The game brought out the best in l)oth teams .111(1 ne er before was sta.ged a gridiron meeting at C(jllege Park so edifying to spectators and so productive of brilliant i)lay. State took the lead at the beginning of the struggle and when Jamie Smith kicked a gf)al from the field after about three minutes of play, V. M. 1. scored a safety about two minutes later, and shortly after- ward got a touchdown which i)laced it in the lead by 9 to 3. l- ' rom that time on Stale braced, its defense was imi;regnable and lirewer ' s two field goals ,ind ,1 touchdown pniduced the ]Kjints which brought victory. lla erford made its first vi it to Cullege P.irk for a game on October _ ' 5. It caught the .State team with two substitutes in the hackfield and soniewhat overcondeiil : those things. coui)led with the fact that llaverford itself had a splendidly coached and clever eleven, caused State ' s downfall by the narrow m;irgin of one iioint, 7 to h. St;ite got going well in the last quarter and IlhI the contest gniu- three more minuter, wnuld ha t ' won. St. John ' s came ne.xt on the schedule and State ' s usually fearsome rival pro ed easy. The score was 31 to 6. Annapolis had a heavy team, which was fairly well drilled, drilled, but it could not cope with the fast attack against which il found itself struggling before the contest was many minutes old. Maryland scored in the lirst four minutes, and at the end of the first half the count was hS to f). St. John ' s diily touchdown came near the middle of the see ind |uarter. two long end runs cniisccuti vely ])utting the ball across. In the second half St. John ' s could niike 110 headway ami its defense crumbled completely. So a])])arent was tlie supei " i " rit - of tin State ti-ani tlial the second half was cut ten minules shi;rt. Much anticipated had been the struggle with Catholic University, and when it arrived it was about all that had been lot ked for. and maybe a little mf)re than the Washington insti- tution had expected. C. U. scored in the first three minutes, when one of its halfbacks liicked up a fuml)le and ran three-fourths the length of the field for a touchdown. The goal was not kicked and State practically started the game with a 6 to o handica]). Potli teams kicked a goal from the field in the second quarter, and the half ended 9 to 3 in favor of C. U.. In the third quarter, though, the State backs carried the ball for consistent gains, which resulted in a touchdown after they had lieen twice held within three feet of the goal line. The secondary defense of the Washingtonians had been drawn in by the battering, and when Smith changed his tactics, throwing a forward i)ass after a double pass, there was nobody between Rich and the goal line. P rewer soon after that kicked another goal from the field and the game ended with the count standing i. to in favor of State. The eleven journeyed to New Vork the following Saturday to meet New York Uni- versity. Newspaper predictions the morning of the contest had New York U. winning easily, but the end of the struggle found Maryland ' s representative institution with 10 points and New York U. 7. State made nineteen first downs against four for the northerners, but fumbles and penalties ])rcventcd a greater amount of scoring. For the entire season the team had been preparing for the game with Hopkins on Thjuiksgiving Day. It had bent its efforts along every line towartl that particular contest. 166 and while it had plawd l)rilliaiU foul had in prrx ions, si ruL .tilcs had ready ne er aiipcared at its l)cst. Ilopkins had a pciwe-rtul, iicaxy line whiidi wa.s considered in -ulnerahle and ahont the same backtield as that which had carried it thmnH ' li a ictorious season in 1915. ddie resnlt of the game need not he dwelt ui)on here. Suffice it to say that at the end State ' s overjoyed rooters sat themseUes hack to regale their minds with a 54 to o score with which their team had oxcrwdielmcd the i ' altnnoreans. One paragraph from the acconnt of the game in the Baltimore Sun explains e erything fidly. liere it is; " ' J " he College Park aggregation had everything; lloi)kins had nothing. It was the most one-sided game seen at Hcmewood in many a day, and the Black and Blue was hopelessly outclassed from the first kick-off. With as fine a rpiartet of slashing, plunging l)acks as ever has heen seen nn a State gridiron, and a line that charged like the hlack watch, the College Park eleven uncovered an attack iha.t swept Hopkins to all corners of the field. I ' letcher and I ' .rewer, the visitors ' scinitilating halfbacks, tore through the Black and iUue line and around the ends almost at will, keeping their feet with remarkable persist ' nce. " The seasrai marked the successful ad ance of the State team into a class in which it had never before played. h ' riendships were formed with colleges with which iMaryland ' s in- stitution had not previously played. New players were developed, the advent of several men in the h ' reshman class doing much to aid in the building of a successful combination. Brewer, who came from St. .Mban ' s School of Washington ; Fletcher, the year before at Dean Academy of Franklin Mass.; Michael, former Davis and Flkins fullback; Macdonald, Central High School captain and halfback in 1915 aided in bolstering the backheld and Inti , another J ' reshman, (le eloped fast in the tackle ' s jiosition. The features of the ' ear would be hard to define. Jamie Smith de eloped into a fine quarterback; " L ' ntz " lirewer and Metcher were as good at least as any other halfbacks in the state; Oberlin j)layed his usual star game at tackle a.iid end, ;ind Williams did ex- cellent work at center. The successes of the team as a whole resulted in obtaining games with Princeton and Penn State, both of which expressed pleasure in taking on Maryland State. Particularly is it worth mentioning in this connection that the State players earned for themselves a reputation for fairness and straight-forward play that was commented upon far and near. The team and the season reflected gread credit upon the college, players and alumni alike. SQUIRREL FOOD 167 - a ' fEEYETUiLg i:z R. S. DEARSTYNE Manager (§rgamzatt0tt R. S. Df.akstyki: Manager J. H.

" ()l ie " is, to a marked degree, the i)Ossessor of all three of these characteristics which go to make a truly great football player. The hrst two are common to all followers of the gridiron, but it is the ])ossession of the third, and the ability to make others do, that can come to a college athlete, the C ' aptaincy ol the footl)all team. It is needless to recount the man - instances when " Obie ' s " leadership has been the decid- ing factor in giving State a ictor}-. Since space will not i)ermit all, let us do no injustice, .-ind therefore recount no single deed, but let each admirer remember " Obie, " as the true general he was, a leader and a warrior. (Eaptatu Sbrt Pna y Posey had no more than arrived at College in the fall of 1912, than he had donned a foot- ball uniform for the hrst time in his life, " liig Hoy " went on the field and started fighting and he simply couldn ' t be held down. As a resuh he soon earned a position on the " X ' arsity " , where he played at guard, tackle, or in the backfield. " Big Boy " has been wearing State colors for five years, and he has given his l est to the team on every occasion. i .gain merit has been awarded ; Posey has been elected to the Captaincy of the 1917 team, and under his guidance we feel safe in i)re- dicting another trc phy for old i tAioi.A. i) STATE. 172 " Awh " WtUianta " Avey " asked someone what a football was when he dropped in at M. A. C. back in 1912, but now he knows, and in learning " he proved that he could pass a pigskin a little better than anyone else at Maryland State. " Avey " came out for football in his SophouKjre ■ear, but it was not until his Junior year that he was found bending over a football as the center of one of the fastest teams M. A. C. ever knew. Sus- taining an injury in the season of 1915, Wil- liams showed his loyalty to the team by giving up his school work and a part of the 191 5 sea- son to undergo an operation which would put him in his old form. Everyone who saw Wil- liams playing at center in the closing games of last season knows that Chandler Sprague made an irretrievable error when he neglected to give " Avey " center on the alaryland af-l-star MYTHICAL. " l rt " Qlnggttia " Bert " disjjlayed the ])ro[)er sinrit by going out for football in his Freshman year. For four years he has held his own, and as a man that is always in the game and fighting con- stantly, he has no peer. " Bert " plays halfback, and a better line plunger is not to be found. He hits the line so hard that after the game with New York Uni- xersity one of the New York papers pro- claimed him as the " human bullet. " It further stated that he was one of the best ground gainers seen in New York in many years. " Bert " leaves this year, and all M. S. C. gives him up with sincere regret. 173 " ®ar " olarbuttnu Tarbutton ajtpeared in a football suit for the lirst time in the fall of K)! . He was put on the scrubs and almost immediately was dubbed " Tar " — because he was so hard to " go thru ' " — and the cognomen has stuck to him. He coN ' ered himself with . l )r - on the arsitv in his So])homore vear and erv nearly won a State cham])ionshii) game In- individual play- ing when he smeared practically ever}- ])lay that St. John ' s aimed at his end of the hue. .Since then, he has ])!ayed regularly at guard. He has ne er l)een known to lose his head on the held, and if an - man could be depended u])on to play the game with his whole heart and soul it was " Tar. " In losing " Tar " we are losing one of the best and most consistent la ers that e er wore the Al. S. C colors. " lobbu " imirk In the fall of 1914, " Hobby " made his hrst ai)j)earance on the M. S. C gridiron. He soon won a i)osition at halfback and i)la}ed a big ])art in e ery game in which he ])articii)ated. In the Hoi)kins game of 1914 " Hobby " scored the only touchdown made b ' our team and this gave M. .S. C. the cham])ionship of the State. So brilliant was " Hobby ' s " v -ork in 1914 that two lialtimore papers ])laced him as halfback on the " All Maryland Team. " During his last two years " Hobln " i)ro efl himself as valuable in one position as in an- other by hlling in wherever he was needed — at halfback, fullback, or end. In IQ15 he wa again chosen a member of the " All Maryland hdeven, " and in ir)i6 he was given a ])Osition at halfback on a team picked by the Washington lepers. " Hobby " ended his football days ar M. S. C. by scoring the last touchdown made by his team in kjiO. His value to the team will be more fully realized than ever when an eiTort is made to fill his place next fall. 174 " IKial) " IKtalivaugl) " Kisli " is the only man in the Senior Class who holds the distinction of having - el■ e(l on the ' arsit ' f(jr four eais.

Though " Kish " has recei ed hard knocks while playing football, sustaining se ere injuries sexeral times, he has stuck b}- the game, and his four " A-I ' s " indi- cate that State will have to search far and wide next fall to uncover a guard of an where near " Honker ' s " abilitv. C Hg Michael FletcKer Smith MARYLAND ' S PRIDE " (Ultp " iarkfiplft The four men jiictured at the top of this jtas e compose the mrealest l)ack- tield that e er ])laye(l on a C(jlle e team in Maryland. A wonderful tribute Avas paid them when a well known C(xich and referee in this State said, " The hackheld that played against Hopkins on last Fhanksgix ing i3av is the greatest that e er ])layed in the State of Maryland, w ith the ])Ossible exce])tion of the Na y. " The above assertion is b}- no means an exaggeration of the abilily of our hackheld. S])eed, brains, accuracy, decision, coolness and " fight, " the essentials of a good backfield, are represented above. In every department of the game this backfield is unexcelled by any backfield Maryland State e er had. Punting, line plunging, footwork, backing up the line, interference — all the rec[uisites of a good backfield were present in the quartette that plaved behind the line for State last fall. All of these men are Freshmen, except Smith, who is a Sophomore, and although their work last fall was wonderful, even greater things are expected of them in years to come. With such men on her football team. State need have no fear of the future. All hats off to the greatest backfield Maryland has ever known. 176 • BALL laa ball g ann, 191 T HEN the bugle call was sounded for candidates for the baseball team for 1917, there were more likeh- -looking youngsters that answered the call than ever before in the history of Old Mary- land. It is true that only a few of the old men are again to be found on the field, but l errick will continue to i)lay hl ' old-time l)osition in center held, and when the necessit " arises, mav be expected to do his share of the pitching. ' ' Chichester, Kncxle and Alornhinweg are again ex])ecled to fig- ure in the big game, and at the rate that Riggs has started oh: " , it is imi)ossible to ]iredict just where he will stop. ()berlin, who played first, and Dearstyne, who played second, bofh regulars (ju last }ear ' s team, did not report for this spring ' s jiractice, and their absence is sure to be felt b}- the team, as it was almost im])ossible for a l)all to gel thr(jugh this pair. Michael, who made his initial a])])earance in athletics at i I. S. C. last fall, is sure to cut quite a figure in the scoring this year, and with the splendid stick work of Hobb}- Derrick, we naturalK ' ex]iect the long end oi the score in most of the games to be played. Mornhinweg, the s])eed demon of State, has at last accjuired contrc l, and an_ - team that i)redicts a double ictorv off of buddy ' s deliver}- is sure to ha e another tune U) whistle after the season is over. As yet the team has not been seen in actual competition, as the game with Colby was canceled. The status of the team and what we ex])ect of it, may well be com]ireliended when such teams as Cornell, Tufts, and Penn State, as well as the state teams to be j)layed for the championshi]). apjiear on our schedule. It is now too early to ])re(lict just what will be the outcome of the season, but when it is understood just what constitutes a ball ])layer at M. S.

He was the man upon whom our coach could always depend to play a good game in any position, whether it be on the mound or in the gardens. " Hobby " proved that as a pitcher he was not to be sneezed at when he pitched a sixteen-inning tie game against Dick- inson. This and his other performances in the box won him such names as " The Iron Man, " " Old War Horse " and others that express the praise and admiration of the student body equally as well. He has played in the outfield in many games, and there he has done good work. His all-around playing ability, his work with the willow and his genial nature make him an admirable man for the Captainc} of the 19 1 7 team. jIj ife Api r rtatinu Followers of baseball at M. S. C. will miss two players this sea- son who played on the 19 16 team. These two men, Dearstyne and Oberlin, though in school, are prevented by more pressing duties from playing on the team. Dearstyne was a member of the team in 1914, and played a brand of baseball that would do credit to any collegiate team. In the two succeeding seasons he played his same steady game, and, as in the spring of 19 14, was always a world of strength with the stick. Oberlin ])layed first base for two years, and always played a clever, heady game, and by his seemingly unlimited supply of " pep " put life in the team when thev were readv to give up the fight. These two men have been valuable to our athletic department, and we regret that they are not to represent State in this year ' s contests. 181 feEVE CzZ 1 rk L A " Hobby " goes to Tenle3 ' to vn On every Sunday eve, We don ' t begrudge his going But he should know when to leave.

He ' s missed his car to college So homeward he does creep. He wakes up in the morning His eyes are all aglow. He thinks he is at college But it ' s there he has to go. He reaches his dear old college At twelve o ' clock or more, And instead of going to classes Lies down to take a snore. Monday has gone whizzing by, " Hobby " hasn ' t done a thing. The fellows used to question him, And this is what he ' d sing: " I had some work at home to do, So could not get away, And for this reason only, I had to miss the day. " At first this verse went very well. And oh, how he did smile, But now that everyone is wise, The verse is not worth while. D. J. H. 182 TRACK V.

The trunks of medals, watches and other prizes that " Untz " has won on the track will attest his running al)ility far better than mere words. During the early part of the season Firewer represented State in the Junior Championslups at Buffalo and brougiit home first honors in the lifty yard dash. Later in the year he ran second to the renowned Loomis in several events. He was a member of the relay which defeated Penn State and ran third in tlie South Atlantic Relay Championships. It is our hope that " Untz " will wear " State Colors " next year, and if he does we are sure that Maryland will Ik- heard frcin in track circle in 191 7- iS. " BERT " COGGINS Vlvur since lie enHTcd cnlleye in the fall of 1913, Coggins has been a member of both the indoor and outdoor track squads. He has run on the relay in many hard races, and in every instance he has given his opponent the " battle of his life. " " Bert " might well be described as a " nervy, heady " runner, as he always uses his head when running a race, and doubtlessly this has had much to do with his success on the track. Besides running on the relay. Coggins has done excellent work over the hurdles, and has often won his event " over the timbers " while in cnmiietition with the best men in the State. C?3 " BILL " GRACE Have you ever seen this grin before.- ' If ynu liave you surely will remember it. Bill can get into more trouble and out of it more quickly than any one we have ever known. Undoubt- edly this is due to his running ability. This youngster is the best quarter-miler that this -chool has ever had, and has been captain of the track team for four years. " Bill " is a good- hearted fellow, well-liked by all his friends, the ladies not being a small factor. His favorite hobby is to run against Gallaudcr, and it is iiard to say whether it is his smile or his speed that brings down the high honor. 186 di feEVE JLLg i:r " NICK " CARTER Beliold!

In 1915 Carter, then a student of St. .MIkuVs, was the South Atlantic Championship ] liler, and in 1916 he was a member of the St. Al- ban ' s World ' s Scholastic Championship Relay. This year he has established a new college record for the mile and has done good work in other events. Perhaps it is but a fancy, but we expect to hear of Carter ' s breaking his old records. We wish him luck. " JOE " CHIPMAN " Joe " made iiis debut in the Freshman- Sophomore cane rush when he sprinted ahead of the crowd, seized the cane and triumphantly carried it into the opponent ' s territory. Since that day he has made a name for himself in both indoor and outdoor track. He has run on the relay team during the entire two years that he has been here, and is also our best half- miler. It is the common opinion that Joe could open a jewelr_v store with the medals thai he has received for running. «3 " JIMMIE " SWARTZ " Jimmie " Swartz, the prize track man of the Two-Year Aggie class, has represented Mary- land State on the flying squadron for the past three seasons. " Jimmie " made the fur fly in his sub-Freslmian year and has kept it flying straight through his college career. " Jim " won distinction for himself in ' 15, ' 16 and in ' 17. with the result that his collection of medals and watches would make any pawnbroker ' s eyes glitter. ] I. S. C. regrets that he is departing from her portals. ■13: ' - 187 THE MEET ®I| ®rark BmBoxx AR ])revented tlie development of the outdoor track season as had been jilanned. The South Athmtic Intercollegiate meet was called off and so were several other such competitions, because of the cancellations of schedules by many colleges. This caused almost a comi)lete cessation of track activities outdoors. The annual State meet was curtailed to the extent of eliminating the events for County Schools, and the only other games attended by the track scjuad were the University of Pennsylvania relay compe- titions. The first indoor meet in which a State entry participated was that held by the Amateur Athletic ITnion at Buffalo. Brewer competed in the sixty yards dash and won the Junior championship. Later in the year he got second place by about four inches in the Senior sixty yards dash, Joe Loomis of Chicago beating him. All ditring the winter Brewer competed in the dash events and never was defeated by any man exce])t 1-oomis, who now is generally conceded to be the best sprinter in the world. In the (Georgetown games Brewer won the 50 yards dash for the South Atlantic Intercollegiate cham ' pionship, and in the George Washington meet got first place in the open 50 yards dash. In the Meadowbrook meet in Philadelphia early in March, the best indoor games iov the }ear, five men were sent to represent State. That those five men were eff " ecti e is shown bv the fact that they brought back as prize?, two gold watches, a siher cu]) and four gold pen knives. The feature of the indoor season in track, though, was the victory of the mile relaA ' team over Penn State in the (jeorge Washington games in Washington. Penn State had expected an easy win, but it met the unexpected, and Maryland State won by about thirty }ards. Morris ran first for State and finished ahead of his man about four Aards. Chi])man took uj) the running then and was followed by Cirace and Iirewer. When Brewer, anchor man, started his part of the event be was so far ahead that all he had to do was jog the distance. The track squad was the strongest in the history of the college. It ex] ected to accomplish quite a little in the South Atlantic Intercollegiate events, but the calling oft " of that meet knocked in the head well-laid plans for it. However, the nucleus of the team will be in college three more years, and from Into, Brewer, Fletcher, Carter and others much mav be expected. 189 PASTIMES w ' A. V. WILLIAMS Manager (irgautsattnn A.

WILLIAMS " A ' e ' " was not satistied witli attaining fame in football, so proceeded to win his " M " in lacrosse in 1916, which he did with considerable ease, and he will repeat the process this year; but, having always played on the defense, the real brilliance of his work has not been noticed by the casual observer. To his teammates, though, " Avey " has always been a man to be deijcndcd upon, and when he leaves this year, the team will be the loser of a waluable lacrosse lilayer. DORSEY GRAY In the i)ring 1 f iyi5 there tottled nut en the lacrosse lield a little red-haired boy with a tick larger than Ir ' mself. . t first the ball had a hard time finding his stick, but finally it succeeded, and then and there he participated in bis first real game of lacrosse. The spring of igi6 found our midget holding down a regular berth. l ' y hard and consistent work he won bis " " . l)i)rse ' is now considered one of the best " homes " that e er handled a lacrosse stick ;u .M. S. C, and he is sure to be missed next season. lliits nif In little Ihn-scy Cray. Small ill sti-itui luit iiir lity in the fi ' tiy. " TAR " TARBUTTON In tile spring of 1915 " Tar " dropped in with I be lacrosse squad with a determination to be- come a star defense man. Working with that determination, " Tar " earned a regular berth for himself on the team in his Junior and Senior years. While " Far " has never been a shining light on the team, he has been a hard-working, faith- ful teammate. .And when the gong sounds for practice ne.xt spring, it is a sure thing that ■■far " will be greatly missed by the former teammates. 194 JEEVE Ccg " BERT " COGGINS Be careful, " Monies " , t )r this is " P.ert " , and if he spills you as he has many another, you will not feel so well tomorrow. " Bert " has been a lacrosse player ever since his freshman year, and the dash and punch that he exhibits in every game lends credit to his ability as a player of the game. Bert ' s aggressiveness and ability to keep men at a distance from the goal has insured him his position for four years, and next year there will be a vacancy on the lacrosse team which will be hard indeed to till as " Bert " filled it. " DUTCH " AXT Too much cannot be said of the ability of Dutch as a lacrosse player. Dutch began his lacrosse career in his Sub-Fre.shman year, and so successful was he that he was chosen to captain the team in his Freshman and Sopho- more years. Due to his untiring efforts, State has had the best lacrosse teams the past two years that she has had in her histor.v. " Dutch " is not only a star defense man, but he has that happy faculty of encouraging his team and keeping them working throughout a game. Although as yet only a Sophomore, we expect Dutch to star in many a lacrosse game in the future as he has in the past, before his college career is completed. " JIMMY " STEVENS Gentle readers, do not look away in dismay, but take a second look at this young warrior. Does he not look like ambition personified ? Although, to appearances, it is seemingly im- possible, Jimmy is really intelligent and capal)le of action — at times. Seriously, though, in the two years " Jinmiy " has been with us, he has been a world of strength to the team. He is a veteran at the game and has proved himself to be one of the steadiest, cleverest and most valuable lacrosse players we have in college. 195 AROUND THE STATION (irijautEatuni C. H.

Richardson we are deeply indebted for his advice and help. To I ' rofessors Anspon and Waite we acknowledge our indebtedness lor the use of their many attractive sceneries. Our thanks are due to Mr. R. C. Towles, editor of the 1916 Rkvkille, for mam timely and valuable suggestions. To Mr. William Reilly, ' 21, we extend our most ]irofound thanks for his numerous cartoons. We need say nothing of the quality of his M ork. It speaks for itself. To the 1 )wles Studio of Washington we wish to extend our thanks for the prompt and efficient service which it has given us. All our dealings with it have been pleasant and in every way satisfactory. As the Class of 1917 departs, it has a feeling of ] ride in being the first class to be graduated from the Maryland State College. For three years this class was a i)art of the Maryland Agricultural College, but as the path of progress was pursued, as greater heights of success and efficiency were reached, and as our Alma Mater ' s greater ambitions were realized, it became necessar}- that changes .should take place. Out of the ashes of the Old has arisen a New, a greater college. It is to her that we i)ledge our loyalty and love, not that we love M. A. C. less, but that we love M. S. C. more. It is because of this love that we firmly resolve that Maryland State shall never rue the day when she bestowed her badge of approval, ihe diploma, ui)on us. We regret that we must break the ties that bind us to each other and to our Alma Mater, but the call to duty rings in our ears. That call reverberates insistent, strong, and we must answer to its summons. If, i)erchance, while scanning these pages during some idle m oment in future years some friend, some comrade, or, more especially, some classmate may live again in memory the good old days of 1916-1917 spent at STATE, the Board of l: ' ditors will be most amply repaid for its labors.
