You can gather from a perusal of its items, without going further, some conception of what the general style and nature of the annual might be. But we trust your interest and curiosity will carry you on, and that patience will unceasingly accompany you until you have observed and scrutinized every detail, examined and weighed the purport of every sketch and the significance of every portrait, and, furthermore, framed your conclusion as to its worth, in order that you may let us know whether or not it is up to the standard that a college of this size 0 5) should possess. If the book does not create such an interest and entertain such a patience, then we are the ones tfi know it. We are the ones to blame. NO ONE ELSE ! Before going further, however, a few preliminary and explana- tory remarks are essential. It is true the Board of Editors, selected from the Junior Class, were chosen to assume the responsibilities and, accordingly, to compile the material and publish it. The Board (lid do this faithfully and untiringly, but it did not do it alone. Some outside as- sistance was necessary. So it is at this titue that the Board of Editors, in behalf of the Junior Class, or the Class of 1921, wishes to extend to these philanthropists, tor that is what they are, our sincere and profound appreciation. We realize that without this timely aid our plans would have been dreams and our efforts failures. We thank them. A word as to the Dedication. We chose as our victims to coniplete this sacred and solemn deed our beloved — ALUMNI. We trust our motives, which you will find expressed in a more appropriate and prominent place in this volume, will meet with yotir approval — in such a way that these motives will be impressed and incul- cated with an indelible stamp. If (he way is sufficiently i)a ' ed, let us jiroceed from page to page, because they follow in logical order, and take us deeper into our inner College life.

I know I ' m wrong, but, brother, stop ! Discard your worldly ways For one fleet hour, and hark ye back To live in other days. In those old days of college life You never shall forget, And think you on one truth that is- ' our college loves you yet. Well do I know that you recall A lad wlio left his liome And traveled here to live beneath The shelter of this dome. .And iTiind you of his timid look When in a Freshman ' s role That meeting of the " rats " was held — His first step toward the goal? And then how on the football field He watched his team ' s first game. And how there swelled up in his lieart A soinething hard to name? Nln ®o (But lunuii Now once again the scene is changed, You hear his jolly shout, As in the Sophomore ' s gay garb He sends his challenge out. Then on to Junior ' s happy days You see him, debonair. And hear ' mid dance and pleasure gay His laughter on the air. At last a Senior you behold, With all a Senior ' s pride, But waiting to embark his raft Upon the ocean ' s tide. Perhaps your heart still may desire To live again that day. But well you know that for us all There comes but once life ' s May. So treat them kindly, brother boy, They ' ll come to you no more. Those Freshman, Junior, Senior years, Or the years of Sophomore. But still on you your college looks, As year piles up on year ; Your life, though you are long since gone. Still holds its impress here. Still do we praise you in our songs And mark each noble deed — Our lives ye mold, as now we reap The harvest of your seed. Today we are the children of The mother you once knew. And we must con those dear old tasks That once were conned by you. Our mother longs for you, big boy. She ' s proud of each good deed; Where e ' er you go, what e ' er your fate, She wishes you God-speed. So come back just this once in dreams And tread this lear old hall. So that your Alma Mater ' s heart May feel your footsteps fall.

Today America needs men ; men endowed with the spirit of the forefathers and trained in America ' s free schools and colleges and imiversities to meet the demands of a century characterized by com])lexities in industry, in politics, in religion, in law, and in education. To the problems which now confront America you have already dedicated your lives, for the ideal of the college man must be the ideal of service — service to state, to nation, to humanity. To the solution of these problems you have brought the training acquired by sacrifice, by perseverance, and by toil, under the direction and inspiration of our Alma Mater. Today we aspire to follow you; to take up the problems where you must leave them. We must enter ujion an era of even greater comi)]e.xity ; and we shall be able to succeed only to the extent to which we shall have your advice and coun- sel, your guidance and your inspiration. Our Alma Mater will be honored among men as you help us to overcome the problems which confront . merica ;ind to lespond to the call of hiuiianity. G. J. S. Thirteen pinrb from tl]C JMinititt O gjp HE Alumni nf an institution, being all sons of the same mother, should, from an idealistic viewpoint, necessarily make up one large, useful and ever- increasing family, and should be synonymous with Brotherhood. Upon this theory of family the Alumni constitute the older members, while the student body represents the younger brothers. In this spirit of brotherhood the student should feel free to go to the Alumnus for succor and advice, and the Alumnus should be found ready to extend a helping hand to aid his younger brother in securing a foothold in life and in the laying of a foundation upon which he can build a career which will redound to his credit and success, the pride of the Association and the glory of his Alma Mater. R. Laurie Mitchell, ' 02. g S to the relations which should exist between the Alumni Association and the student body. 1 am of the opinion that the relations should be close, friendly and fraternal. Geo. H. Calvert, Jr., ' 92. o BIB HE problem of the student is the problem of the Alumnus; the problem of the Alumnus is the future problem of the student. The College must be de- pended upon to help solve the problems of both, and it follows, therefore, that the interests of the Alumnus, student and College are almost so closely bound together as to be one and the same ; the unswerving loyalty of one to the others is essential to the paramount success of all. H. C. Byrd, ' 08. CARCELY an thing means more for a college than a large and enthusiastic body of Alumni who make it their business to get behind every prog ressive move in the life and extended usefulness of the institution, thereby aiding their younger brothers — for that is what they are — who are striving to attain the position that these older brothers now hold. Henry Holzapfel, Jr. ILOSE and active relations between the Alumni Association and the student body is, in the end, the greatest and most substantial assurance the College has of a progressive and growing future. William P. Cole. Jr., 1910. 1L( )SER co-operation between the Alumni and the student body is essential. Today the old " grad " feels lost when he comes back on Saturday afternoon and finds that all the old " Profs " that he knew have gone home for the day. It is the student ' s business to look after that Alumnus. You will find the latch- string out at the office of that Alumnus for every M. S. C. man thereafter, and he will b e anxious to help the new graduate. E. N. Cory. Fourleen J or frnm tl c Alumiti D SBB HE relation between the student liody and the Aknnni of a college should be a strong and vital one. In this kinship the welfare and betterment of the nistitution must always be paramount. The students should find in the Alumni ideals to be attained, while the gradu- ates look to the students for the upholding and surpassing of traditions. Always closest co-operation is imperative, and if this is maintained, each finds a perfect complement in the other. L. B. Broughton. C5 giB HE future of any institution depends upon the success of its Alumni. The success of the Alumni is dependent upon the success of the students. A good student makes a good Alumnus. A good Alumnus is one who glorifies the ' nstitution he represents by first making a record in his chosen field, and second, by remembering his Alma Mater and taking a real interest in the development of the institution and the work of the students in every field of their endeavor. T. B. Symons. H m OOK UP, O ALUAINI ! Let your lights shine among men ! Let them ever symbolize the spiritual glory of dear Alma ALiter, and let them daily remind us of the source of our highest inspiration and of our lasting obligation to service in her behalf. F. B. BOMBERGER, ' 94. C sm HE Alumni should ever be willing and anxious to keep in close touch with the undergraduate body, and give to those younger sons of their Alma Mater the full benefit of their experiences since they withdrew from the College as regular students. W. M. HiLLEGEisT, ' 12. C5 SDZI HE attitude of the Alumni toward the student body should always be solici- tous and friendly. The Alumni should visit their Alma Mater whenever pos- sible, and ought to be welcomed cordially and fraternally by the student body. .[t is to the Alumni in the capacity of the big brother to whom the graduates have to look, in a large measure, for help and encouragement at the commencement of life ' s big tasks. H. B. HOSH.VLL. i(jo8. X N my opinion, the Alumni should act as big brothers to the boys in school. J They should keep in closer contact with the working of their Alma Mater, and thus help the worthy student in his mo.st vital problem after graduation — the securing of a position. M. A. PvLE, 1919.

Jxirharbsnn HE Maryland State College of Agricultvire, situated in a beautiful section of Prince George ' s County, about eight miles from Washington and thirty-two miles from Baltimore, is today one of the most promi- nent and successful educational institutions of the East. It has the distinction of operating under the first Legislative act of the Western Hemisphere to confer a charter for the establishment of a college in which it was mandatory on the part of the board of trustees to make experimental agri- culture a part of the regular curriculum. In 1856 the prominent planters of Southern Maryland became intensely inter- ested in the works of the great German scientist. Von Liebig, and determined to establish a school where the sons of Maryland farmers could receive instruction in scientific agriculture. CHARTER OF 1856. In that same year a charter was secured from the State Legislature, and the high motives of those interested in the foundation of an agricultural college can be seen in the preamble to that charter, a part of which is as follows : " Whereas it has been represented to the Legislature that certain wise and virtuous citizens are desirous of instituting and establishing in some convenient locality within this State an agricultural college and model farm, in which the youthful students may especially be instructed in those arts and sciences indis- pensable to successful agriculture pursuit • and " Whereas it doth ap])ear to this Legislature that while the wise and learned •n the present age hath cultivated with laudable industry and applied with admir- able success the arts and sciences to other pursuits, the most necessary, useful and honorable pursuit of agriculturists has so far been lamentably neglected ; and " Whereas it is the province and duty of the Legislature to encourage and aid the philanthropic citizens in their efiorts to disseminate useful knowledge by establishing an agricultural college and model farm, which shall, in addition to the usual course of scholastic training, particularly indoctrinate the youth of Maryland, theoretically and practically, in those arts and sciences which, with good manners and morals, shall enable them to subdue the earth and elevate the State to the lofty position its advantages in soil, climate, etc., and the moral and mental caj acities of its citizens, enlille it to attain. " Tlvcnlv-ninc 1856-HISTORY- 1920 CHARTER i I EMBERS. The charter named for the carryino- out of ' its provisions the following men, all of whom were among the most prominent citizens of the State: James T. Earle, John O. Wharton, Chas. B. Calvert, Nicholas B. Worthington, Walter W. W. Bowie, George W. Hughes, Ramsey McHenry, J. Carrcjll Walsh and A. B. Davis. To establish a college for instruction in scientific agri- culture was, to the less intelli- gent farmer of that day, an absurd proposition ; but the committee appointed by the projectors of the enterprise went to work energetically and succeeded in selling 2000 shares of stock in the corpora- tion at $25 a share. FIRST BOARD OF DIRECTORS. At the beginning of the ' " = ' ' ' " " seventies year 1858 the committee reported that all the terms required by the charter had been met, and a meeting of the stockholders was called for the purpose of elect- ing a board of directors. The following board was elected : Thomas Perry, Allegany County ; John O. Wharton, Washington County ; George P. Davis, Frederick County ; A. B. Davis, Montgomery County ; S. T. C. Brown, Carroll County; Charles Carroll, Howard County; J. C. Brune, Baltimore City; W. H. Purnell, Worcester County ; John Merryman, Baltimore County ; Richard Mc- Henry, Harford County; C. B. Calvert, Prince George ' s County; Walter Mitchell, Charles County ; J. H. Sothron, St. Mary ' s County ; T. I. Graham, Calvert County ; M. B. Worthington, Anne Arundel County; C. M. Elderdice, Cecil County; James Alfred Pearce, Kent County ; Samuel Hamilton, Talbot County ; J. T. Earle, Queen Anne ' s County ; W. T. Goldsborough, Dorchester County ; R. C. Carter, Caroline County, and Dr. G. M. Dennis, .Somerset County. Charles B. Calvert was elected the first president of the board. It would be hard to find associated with any private or public enterprise in the whole history of the State of Maryland a roster of more substantial and able men than those representing the first board of directors of the Maryland Agricul- tural College. FIRST COLLEGE BUILDING. The first college building was completed in 1859, on the farm purchased for that purpose from Charles B. Calvert, Esq., and the same year the college work was organized and begun. The first curriculum comprised the departments of agriculture and agricultural chemistry, together with geology and mineralogy, physics, comparative anatomy and veterinary science, botany, entomology and ornithology ; mathematics, with surveying, engineering, mechanics and astronomy , ancient and modern languages ; moral and mental philosophy, with history and English literature. The college work was liegun with George C. Shaffer, professor of agricul- ture; H. D. Gough, professor of mathematics; Batista Lorina, professor of lan- guages, and Benjamin Hallowell, professor of philosophy. Thirl )-one 1856— HISTORY— 1920 BENJAMIN HALLOWELL FIRST PRESIDENT. Benjamin Hallowell was elected president of the faculty, and this act alone was sufficient guarantee of the success of the new scholastic enterprise. In that day the name of Benjamin Hallowell stood for all that was noblest and best, both in the moral and intellectual life, and his name alone gave prestige to the new collegiate institution. About the end of the first year Dr. Hallowell was compelled to sever his con- nection with the College on account of ill-health, and the minutes of the board show that his resignation was accepted with the greatest regret. Dr. Hallowell was made an honorary member of the hoard for life. Benjamin Hallowell, in fact, conceived the Maryland Agricultural College. He was one of the most prominent educators of his time, and though not Mary- land born, was one of the greatest citizens of the State in his day. He was an astronomer and mathematician of the first rank and the author and editor of many scientific works. He was born in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, in 1799, and died in Montgomery County, Maryland, in 1877. Sixty years of his life were spent in educating the youth of the country. He entered on duty as the first president of the Maryland Agricultural Col- lege in October, 1859. He gave his views to the promoters of the enterprise, such an enterprise as he had longed to undertake, " in which the muscle would be trained simultaneously with the intellect, in the various mechanical industries and the agricultural and horticultural pursuits, budding, grafting and training fruit trees, vines, shrubbery, and the propagation of flowers, etc. " ' In his brief administration of the ?klaryland Agricultural College he brought to the front leaders among boys, just as play or the athletic field brings forward leaders in games. He made play of work, and realized one of the guiding thoughts of his career, that " everything can be moved if we touch the right spring. " STATE OWNERSHIP ACQUIRED. The College continued to exist on its own resources for several years, but owing to the financial disasters and general depression incident to the Civil War, I he College was compelled, in 1866. to appeal to the State Legislature for financial assistance. The State rendered the desired aid, and, in consideration of the same, the stockholders made over to the State a one-half interest in the property of the College. This action practically gave to the State the ownership and directorship of the institution, for in the entire board of 17 trustees the State was represented by 12. The (Governor was ex-officio president of the board, and the President of AT THE VERY BEGINNING Tlurtv-ljvo 1856-HISTORY-1920 the Senate, Speaker of the House, Comptroller, Attorney-General and Treasurer of the State were also ex-officio members. There were also six trustees appointed by the Governor, one from each Congressional district, the tenure of whose office was six years. The other five trustees were elected by the stockholders for six years. For the 20 years or more following 1866 the College grew but little, but managed to remain true, for the most part, to the ideals for which it was created. At the end of this period eight presidents had come and gone. In 1888 Major Henry E. Alvord took charge of the institution, and it was during his administra- tion that the Maryland Agri- cultural Experiment Station was established. ALL HAVE LEFT BUT DR. MCDONALD PRESIDENT SILVESTER ' S WORK. In i8y2 Ca])t. Richard W. Silvester was elected president of the College, and his great energy and executive ability soon began to transform the old College into a broader and better institution and to start it tipon a career of greater use- fulness and success, and under his administration of its affairs the Maryland Agricultural College was made to represent a high type of technological school, and began to be of inestimable benefit and credit to the State. Captain Silvester was born in Virginia, and was a graduate of the ' irginia Military Institute. He was a man of charming manner and unusual ability, and stood high among the educators of the East. President Silvester was executive of the College until forced by ill health to resign in 1912. The remarkable progress made by the College during the administration of President Silvester can be easily seen by the following statistics : 1. Average annual attendance for the 15 years preceding 1892, 50 students. 2. Average annual attendance for the 15 years following 1892, 165 students. 1. Value of property in 1892, $68,000. 2. Value of property in 1906, $198,600. 1. ' alue of facilities for instruction in 1892, $8000. 2. ' alue of facilities fur instruction in 1906, $56,000. CAPTAIN SYLVESTER AND HIS FACULTY I liirlv-thiee a 1905--1912 BOUT 1906 the Maryland Agricultural College, better known as M. A. C. — Kiel may be said to have gotten upon a working basis as a going concern. While ff if Ss oZ 1 mt r t Sf- jiral MH Hj B ' the capacity of the buildings was not adequate, the facilities for instruction were far more efficient than had been the case a decade before, and the College administration, the State officials and the people of the State felt just cause for gratification. In March, 1905, was cele- brated the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the College. This occasion was one of keen interest and attraction throughout the State. At this time the Adminis- tration Building had just been finished and the Old Barracks completely made over and re- furnished. These two build- ings supplied accommodations for two hundred students, and there was not a vacant room. Besides these and the group COMMENCEMENT f Experiment Station Build- ' ngs, the cam[)us contained the west wing of the Engineering Building, the Chem- istry Building, the Library and Gymnasium, the Ht)spital and Morrill Hall. The new Administration Building contained the executive offices, the Chapel and Auditorium, and had dormitories on the second, third and fourth floors. The College barracks was a five-story brick building, containing student quar- ters and the domestic department. The dormitories were large, well ventilated, and provided with fire-escapes, bath and water rooms. All the buildings were lighted with gas and electricity and heated with steam from central plants on the college groimds. The mechanical engineering department was located in a two-story brick building, completed in i8y6, and in 1906 thoroughly equipped. It contained work- shops for woodwork, machinery-room well filled with modern equipment, a drawing-room, library and office, together with a large annex, designed to afford additional facilities in forging and foundry work, which was erected and equipped during 1904. The chemical building was completed in 1897, and in igo6 was thoroughly equipped. It contained sev- eral lecture-rooms, laborato- ries for practical work, and for the analyzing of fertilizers and feeding materials for do- mestic animals. This work was assigned to the professor of chemistry at this College by an act of the General Assem- bly. He was the State Chem- ist. In 1893 the present library building was erected. For a time it served for both gym- nasium and library, but the second floor proved too small Thirtv-four 1856-HISTORY-1920 THE DANCE for library purposes, and the gymnasium floor was converted into a library and equipped with library files. Morrill Hall provided ample accommodations for the departments of agricul- ture, horticidture, physics, entomology, vegetable pathology and veterinary science, thus relieving the pressure of close quarters from which these departments have suffered and greatly extenilini;- th ' .-ir opportunities for the development of high- grade scientific work. A green- house for work in entomology and vegetable pathology has just been added. The College infirmary, com- pleted in igoi, has proved a most efficient means of isolat- ing infectious diseases which might otherwise have become epidemic, thus seriously em- barrassing College work. It contained ample room for all emergencies and was fur- nished with modern hospital facilities. On the night of November 29, 1912, occurred the disastrous fire which destroyed the two large dormitories with the dining-rooms, business offices, and the classrooms for Mathematics and Languages. The usual Thanksgiving Dance was in progress when fire was dis- covered darting forth from the ceiling of a room on the top floor of the Admin- istration Building. Every effort was made to control the fire, but the water supply failed, and in a short time there was nothing left except the grim, gloomy ruins. Worst of all, the College records extending over a period of more than fifty years were utterly destroyed. It looked for a time as though the College would have to suspend operations indefinitely, but the students saved the day. Four days after the fire every student save one reported for duty, resolved to keep the College going. Our neighbors in the nearby towns co-operated most generously, opening their homes to the boys of the homeless College, and for nearly two years they kept them, and kept them well. After the fire serious eft ' orts were made to transplant the College to a differ- ent part of the State, but, fortunately, they did not prevail. The hallowed senti- ment of two generations that had been born for the old " College on the If ill ' ' was too strong to be denied, and all interests ' ultimately united to raise a greater and a better College upon the cinders of the old M. A. C. In 1905 the College Faculty was composed as follows : R. W. Silvester, President and Professor of Mathematics ; Thomas H. Spence, ' ice President and Professor n Languages ; H. B. McDonnell. State Chemist and Professor of Chemistry ; J. S. Robinson, State Horticulturist and Pro- fessor of Horticulture; J. B. the ruins Thiriy-fivc BEFORE AND AFTER M. A. C. OF OLD 1856-HISTORY-1920 S. Norton, State Pathologist and Professor of Botany ; T. B. Symons. State Ento- mologist and Professor of Zoology ; Edward Lloyd, Commandant and Professor of Military Science ; W. T. L. Taliaferro, Professor of Agriculture ; S. S. Buckley, Professor of Veterinary Science; F. B. Bomberger, Professor of English, His- tory and Civics; H. Lanahan, Professor of Physics; C. S. Richardson, Professor of Public Speaking and Physical Culture ; H. Gwinner, Professor of Mechanical Engineering; H. T. Harrison, Principal of the Preparatory Department. About 1909 the present Engineering Building was completed. Dr. T. H. Taliaferro had succeeded Professor Lanahan, and Professor Creese had come to teach Electrical Engineering. Changes and expansions ensued in several departments. Professor Hutt, then Professor Close, with Professor Novick in turn, had charge of Horticulture ; State Forester Besley inaugurated his lectures in Forestry, and there were added to the teaching force from among the graduates : Professor Cory, Zoology ; Pro- fessor Ruffner, Animal Husbandry; Professor Broughton, Chemistry; Profes- sor Byrd, Physical Culture. Professor Crisp, now the efficient chief of our Gen- eral Service, came to supplement the staft " in Engineering. The year IQCX) marked the death oi Dr. Joseph R. Owens, the Nestor of the Administration, he having assumed the office of Registrar and Treasurer in 1890. Dr. Owens was a gentleman (if the old school, affable and lovable, and withal a talented financier. The College curriculum was kept abreast of the times and entrance require- ments were advanced as steadily as the progress of the high schools would permit. Short winter courses in agricultural and domestic sciences were inaugurated, and the benefits of the College thus greatly widened in scope. The College more than maintained its standing in the Intercollegiate Oratori- cal Association, and though the A. B. course had been discontinued, our repre- sentatives won more than their share of honors against colleges whose principal course was classical. In Military Training an entirel} " new spirit was aroused with the detail in igo8 of Captain E. T. Conley to be Commandant of Cadets. Under his aggres- sive administration the campus became a modified West Point ; a College Band was organized for the first time ; the battalion of cadets was given a week ofif for target practice at the army range down the Potomac ; a week was spent in camp each year, and so to be awarded an officers ' commission on Commencement Day was no mere formality. In 1910, and again in 1911, M. A. C. was rated as having one of the ten best- trained cadet battalions in the United States, and consequently entitled to name a graduate for a commission in the regular army. Cadet Major O. H. Saunders, now Major, U. S. A., was named in 1910, and in 191 1 the honor was won by Cadet Captain L. M. Silvester, also at present Major, U. S. A. In 1908 the bat- talion, under Major Edward Lloyd, with Cadet Major Cooper, accepted an invi- tation to spend a week at the Jiunestown Exposition, where its drills excited marked approbation. Captain J. S. L pham succeeded Captain Conley in 191 1. He made an excel- lent Commandant and was notable as a marksman. He was recalled to his regi- ment just after the fire in 1912. The Cadet Majors during the period covered by this sketch were L. F. Zerkel, H. D. Williar, C. F. Mayer, O. H. Saunders. E. A. Mudd, W. M. Kemp and H. H. Koehler. The value of the training of cadets has been vindicated on the field of battle. Captain Basil Spalding, ' 09, was the first American officer to lead a detachment " over the top. " Among others who won distinction in Europe I mention with honor: Williar. ' 07; Allison and Dryden, ' 09; Cole, Saunders and Tydings, ' 10; Sylvester, Mudd and Warthen, ' 12. 1856-HISTORY-1920 Athletics during this period were marked by trinm])hs and reverses. Funds adequate to employ a full-time coach were nut available, and Professor Richardson was fain to resort to such volunteer and underpaid talent as he might be able to secure. However, the spirit of old M. A. C. never faltered. and by sheer pluck and despite obstacles the college more than held its own on gridiron and diamond.

The Rossbourg dances held ni the new auditorium were very popular; the Junior-Senior german marked the opening of " June Week " ; Commencement Ball closed the festivities of the year. In iyi2 Commencement exercises were held out of doors in the College Grove for the first time. While the percentage of drones was normal, the scholastic work of the stu- dent body as a whole was unusually good. The jiranks that go., or used to go, with college life were sufficient to banish ennui for the most indiiterent : Raids on the College pantry (Charlie Dory ' s health resort) ; " attacks in force " upon defenseless ( ?) Hyattsville, with remorse the morning after when Captain Silvester bailed a score or more of woe-begone cadets out of the " hoosgnw " : girding " Commy ' s " sword upon the Holstein Bull and haltering him to the steam engine in the .

They may not all shine with dazzling achievements, but each is doing his share in his own efficient way. He has the hallmark of M. A. C. engraved upon him ; it stands for grit, perseverance and success. 1913-192U w Clje Icbttnrs ' .AKING up the history of the Maryland State College in 1913, attention should be called to the fact that from the time of the fire up to June of that year Professor Thomas H. Spence was acting President of the College, owing to the illness and subsequent resignation of President Silvester. The administration of Professor Spence was characterized by marked executive ability, and the College continued to thrive under his supervision. It was during his administration that the temporary dining-hall and auditorium were constructed and the President ' s house converted into a dormitory for the students. In June of this year Dr. Harry J. Patterson, who for many years had been Director of the Experiment Station, was elected President of the College. Dr. Patterson took up the affairs of the institution with great energy and ability and began work on com])rehensive plans for the future development of the College. He at once reorganized the college work by dividing it into five divisions and appointing a dean of each division. These divisions were as follows : Agricultural Education, Prof. J. E. Metzger, dean; Agricurture, Dr. W. J. Talia- ferro, dean; Engineering, Dr. T. H. Taliaferro, dean; Sociology, Prof. F. B. Bomberger, Dean; Applied Science, Dr. H. B. McDonnell, dean. Dr. Patterson organized the Young Men ' s Christian Association and em- ployed Mr. B. H. Darrow as the director of this association. The President also gave permission for (ireek-letter fraternities to be organized among the College students, and Gamma Pi, now Sigma Nu, was the first fraternity organized. The other frats formed during Dr. Patterson ' s administration were Alpha Phi, now Kappa Alpha; Iota Sigma, now Sigma Phi, Sigma, and Nu Sigma Omricon. It must be admitted that the College work flourished under Dr. Patterson ' s administration, which ran until his resignation in 191 7, and that the College ma- terially improved and advanced in every respect during his presidency. The year 1914 marks an effort on the part of the College authorities and of the alumni to secure an appropriation from the State Legislature adequate for the immediate needs of the institution, and to procure such legislation as would effect beneficial changes in the administration and organization of the College. The private stockholders in the institution generously surrendered their holdings to the State, and through the offer of the College for sale and other legal proceed- ings, the State finally came into full legal ownership of the entire College plant. Unfortunately, through some mix-up or miscarriage in the Legislature, the different bills passed in the interest of the College by the 1914 session, including Forly 1856-HISTORr-1920 an appropriation of $300,000, were never validated, and the plans and hopes of those who were working in the interest of the College were temporarily thwarted. During the academic year 1914-15 Calvert Hall was dedicated. In connection with the military work at this time it may be noted that C. E. Robinson was Cadet Major and Major J. A. Dupray Com- mandant of the battalion. Sfmm KS M ' ' ' ' - la MBlB 18 l MI " " ' marks an P B M P " BBI B BB] MMI BK P t hs history of Mary- RB ' S jK P K ' S I J si gfflBl ' ' " State. It was during the ' !E?. ' 7 V hI II E 4i!

The personnel of the first board was as follows: Mr. Henry Hol- zafel, Hager.stown, Md. ; Mr. B. John Black, Roslyn, Md. ; Mr. W. W. Skinner, Kensington, Md. ; Mr. Albert W. " Sisk, Preston, Md. ; Mr. Carl R. Gray, Balti- more, Md. ; Mr. Frank J. Goodnow, Baltimore, Md. ; Mr. John M. Dennis, Rider- wood, Md. ; Air. Robert Grain, Baltimore, Md. ; Mr. Samuel M. Shoemaker, Eccleston, Md. • E ' y legislative enactment the name of the College was changed from the Maryland Agricultural College to the Maryland State College of Agriculture, and even in the short time of two or three years the institution is now commonly spoken of as Maryland State. The academic work during the year 1916-17 was seriously disrupted by the exodus of students incident to the declaration of war with Germany. It is grati- fying to know that a large number of Maryland State boys immediately volun- teered for service. It is undesirable to make this short history prolix with un- necessary incidents and details, but this thing at least must be mentioned : That of the undergraduate students who left the College and joined the forces of the United States, practically every one subse(|uently re- turned and finished his course. Old Maryland State seemed mighty good to them after their experiences in the army. During this year Colonel John Pitcher was placed in charge of the battalion, and F. M. Haig was Cadet Major. Perhaps the greatest inci- dent, and one of the most far- reaching effect upon the Col- lege during this period was the election to the presidency of the College of Dr. Albert " ° different Fred Woods, whose election occurred shortly after the resigii;iti(in of President Patterson. Forty-one AMONG THE BIG TEN 1856— HISTORY-1920 The Board of Trustees, after looking the entire country over for a man big enough to develop Maryland State into a great and powerful educational institu- tion, selected Dr. Woods, then Dean at the University of Minnesota, as the one man who could be trusted to do this work. President Woods is proving himself to be fully capable of performing the great task of making Maryland State College the equal of any in the country. He took hold of the work with great energy, practically reorganized the College cur- riculum, added a number of new departments, became an influential force among all the agricultural interests of Maryland, and even in this short time can see almost fulhlled his plans and hopes for a really great institution. Dr. Woods changed the divisions of the College into schools, and added to those already in existence the School of Liberal Arts, Domestic Art, and a Grad- uate School. In connection with the military work of the College the writer omitted to mention that during a part of this year Mr. Galen Sturgess, fresh from the Mexican border, acted as Cadet Major. In 1917 the new .Agricultural Building was completed and dedicated. This is the newest and most imposing structure on the College campus. It is now being used not only exclusively for agricultural purposes, but holds the administration offices of the College as well. The principal event in 1918 was the inauguration at the College of the work of the Students ' Army Training Corps. This caused the regular College work to be suspended for a term. The S. A. T. C. comprised six hundred students, and until it was disbanded at the end of the first term the complete curriculum as recommended by the United States War Department was in full force. It may also be mentioned that during the war two hundred and fifty students of the United States Signal Corps received their training at this College. At the beginning of the calendar year 1919 the regular College work was resumed. As a large number of the students were in the army it was feared that the enrollment of the following fall would be distressingly small. It may be said, however, that much to the surprise and gratification of the authorities the number of students enter- ing at the beginning of the year 1919-20 was the largest in the history of the College — 485, including 35 co-eds. This new year was marked by a radical change in the military work of the institution. The new arrangement provided that all able- bodied students .should be members of the Reserve Officers ' Training Corps, an organ- ization under the general supervision of the United States Government. The student ' s work in the training corps has a value of twelve College credits. Captain George A. Matile of the United States Army organized the work of the R. O. T. C. and is now in command of it. The method of College discipline was also radically changed in the fall of 1919. There was institued what is known as Student Gov- ernment. Under this method the students enter 1 have their own governing bodies, and have organized and are carrying out a pure form of democracy. They alone cai. demonstrate the wisdom of this change, but so far student government has seemed to work very well, and in most respects has been a great improvement upon the old form of faculty supervision. Forlv-lhree 1856-HISTORY-I920 RECREATION Along with the inauguration of this new democratic form of government came the abohshing of " Rat Rules " and the introducing of the present-day " Freshman Code " in their place. The Class of 1921 was responsible for this, which was a move truly in harmony with the modern development. Among the College activi- ties it may be well to mention the membership of this insti- tution in the Oratorical Asso- ciation of Maryland Colleges. In this organization Maryland State students have won the tirst gold medal five times, and the second medal four times. The annual intersociety de- bate between the Poe and the New Mercier Societies is another activity of constant importance and interest on the campus. The interest in this event has been stimulated by the awarding of a silver loving cup to the winning society, and a gold medal to the best individual debater. These debates were begun during the administration of Dr. Patterson as President of the College. It is he who today is still offering the Patterson Cup, while the Alumni Association continues to keep pace by donating the always-cov- eted gold medal. Another College activity is that of the editing and financing of the student publications. There are two of these : First, the Maryland State Review, which is a weekly paper, and second, the Reveille, which is the year-book of the Col- lege. The former is published by a board elected by the Student Body ; the latter is published by a board elected by the Junior Class. Both are highly representa- tive of the forward movement enveloping the entire institution. During the past year a dramatic club called " The Players " was organized. This organization by the end of the year will have j resented two large plays. This is a progressive move concurrent with the inauguration and advancement of a highly efficient Liberal Arts School. The number of fraternal or- ganizations during the present year has greatly increased. Prior to this time, as men- tioned, there were four such bodies to a student enrollment of three hundred, whereas now, to a student body of four hundred fifty, there are seven fraternities and one so- rority. Two of these repre- sent Nationals of substantial character. Two are newly- formed locals built around a more recreation nucleus of influential energetic students. The Nationals are: Alpha Zeta and Phi Alpha. The locals are : Sigma Tau Alpha and Sigma Delta. Forl -four 1856— HISTORY— 1920 Covering the period from 1913 up to the present the athletics of Maryland State College have constantly improved, until novv Maryland State is recognized throughout the East as ranking among the large and prominent institutions in athletic reputation. She holds the undisputed championship in Maryland in foot- ball, and developed the champion relay team of the South. In an unusually ambi- tious schedule the baseball team up to the close of the season in 1919 had met but two defeats. Such institutions as the University of Virginia, Princeton and Yale are now on the regular athletic schedules. Whatever else may be omitted from this hurried and fragmentary history of the last few years of the College, there is one thing that must not be omitted, and that is that the remarkable excellence of our athletic teams at this time is due entirely to the splendid coaching of Mr. H. C. Byrd. Mr. Byrd has also shown great energy and ability in his work as assistant to the President, and his executive position has assisted him in giving to the athletics of Maryland State the consid- eration and prominence which college athletics deserve. The College Faculty lost a number of valuable men during this period on account of the small salaries which they received, among whom may be especially mentioned Prof. Henry T. Harrison, who had been a member of the faculty for 26 years. Professor Harrison left to take a more lucrative position in New England. During the period covered here two deaths occurred in the faculty — that of Professor Stoddard, head of the Department of Vegetable Culture, and of Mr. Herschel Eord, Registrar and Treasurer. Both of these men were invaluable to the institution, and both had the respect and affection of all connected with the College. For several years the old Commencement Week has given way to what is now called Commencement and Farmers ' Day. Upon this occasion thou- sands of farmers and their families have been visitors of the College. For the past few years May 30 — Decoration Da ' — has served as this " day of days. " The year 1920 will, however, find itself back to the old Commencement Week. Pros- pects indicate a larger and more extensive program at this time than ever before in the history of the College. Maryland State is now well on the way to becoming a great institution. It has an able President. It has a most capable faculty. Its affairs are administered by a competent board of trustees. The present Legislature will probably appro- priate sufficient money to erect a new Administration Building, Dining Hall, Gymnasium, and several Dor- mitories, all of which are badly needed. The plans are drawn of the necessary build- ings which are to be added, and the schemes for the greater development of the College are well under way already. There is one thing, ln)w- ever, that must be mentioned before this article is finished, and that is the work of the Experiment Station and of the Extension Service. The Experiment Station is noon doing a sjjlendid work under tlie able dictatcirshi]) of Dr. H. J. Patterson, win; been in charge of the Station fur thirty-lwo years. Forl )-five I856-HISTORY— 1920 The Extension Service, under the unusually energetic and capable admin- istration of Director T. B. Symons, has grown into a great and useful institution. Taking an inventory of what has already been done here at the College, and what will assuredly be done in the next five years, together with the remarkable work of the Experiment Station and the Exten- sion Service, leads one to believe that there will soon be a realization of what not long ago seemed a dream — the once Maryland Agricultural Col- lege, now Maryland State College, will become Maryland State University, and in actuality one of the greatest educational institutions of the United States. A list of the Presidents of the College may be of interest: Prof. Benjamin Hallowell, President of the Faculty, 1859-60; Rev. J. W.

" Dutch " is one of those few human beings who can do anything and literally " get away with it. " No matter how disappointed you feel at not having received a letter from the only girl, " and if you feel so blue you are almost purple, " then if you come in contact with " Dutch " you are sure to forget your troubles and feel human again. " Dutch " matriculated in the fall of 1914, coming from Baltimore City College. Athletics immediately occupied his attention, and the years following found him playing on State ' s football team. His athletic ability lies not only in the football, but in track and lacrosse also, he being captain of the latter in his Freshman year. In his Junior year he interrupted his studies long enough to enlist and spend a few months abroad. In the fall of 1919 he rematriculated, and at the present time is studying hard for the. coveted sheepskin. " Dutch " enjoys the privilege of being president of the E.xclusive Lovers ' Club. Every evening finds Axt leisurely walk- ing back in the country with one of the belles of College Park. Just how " Soon " we do not know.

" Ted " soon let it be known to everybody that he was here for business. " Profs ' ' found in him a real student, and as a specialist in entomology he was bound to be a wizard. " Ted " developed remarkable ability as an organizer, and the literary firm of " Bissell-Ady " established quite a reputation. Their " nineteenth Century Poetry and Prose " was ever in demand. As a literary critic, " Bissell-Ady, Inc., " was known as an authority. " Ted ' s " activities have shown a broad-minded plan of development. He was quite versatile in his ' service with the student organizations as a debater, actor, executive and social man. The Battalion claimed him to be the clever little ca ptain with the big voice. This vocal ability, a natural asset, was developed as First Lieutenant and Adjutant of the Battalion in his Junior year. The success of his brilliant military career can be traced to the summer training at Plattsburg and Camp Lee. " Ted " is a fine fellow, but he has a startling affinity for buggy creatures — yes, those creeping, crawling, flying, Stirling insects. .Any insect is easily de- scribed and classified by this illustrious scientist. It must be said in his favor, though, that he shows care in the choice of his friends. The class join in wishing you all kinds of good luck and success in your life work. But, " Ted, " do have a care for your attachments. Remember there is a special exterminator for every insect, and our asylums are full of bugs. Fifty -six BRADFORD L. BURNSIDE Hyattsville, Md.

' Mirth is God ' s medicine Y friend.s, cast your critical eye for a moment upon the noble countt nance before you. What do you see? Ah, you have guessed it — the noblest work of nature. But don ' t be alarmed, for it is only our dear old Hap, the gentleman " Hecker " from Baltimore county, harmless as a turtle-dove. Though quite a dignified gentleman. Hap still retains one feature that will forever brand him — the never-failing plow walk. As said before, he is from Baltimore county, and states that if there is anything in agriculture imknown to that county, the world has not heard of it. Primarily, Hap is a granger. Since enrolling everybody in the vicinity of College Park he may be found meandering at large throughout the State on a silent hunt for prospective grangers. Much of Hap ' s success in this has been due to his ability as an orator, which is self-confessed. He has even been heard to admit it. On all occasions he will readily consent to convince you and all within the hearing of his voice " Why Farmers Should Send Their Sons to College. ' " For versatility, Hap is without equal. From time to time he has been found in the vicinity of Gerneaux Hall, and even Carroll House, but he has also at other times gone far afield. While in other persons this might be regarded as incon- sistency, it can only in Hap ' s case be attributed to versatility. Take notice, ye members of the fair sex. Hap is still in the race. Hap has, however, made himself liked by all on our campus. Through his courtesy and consideration he has won a place for himself in our life, and we are convinced that these sterling qualities will win fur him well-merited success in whatever he may undertake.

In his first year at college he had the record of being present at more " rat " meetings than any other man. He never was a great admirer of " Commy, " but did manage to get up as far as First Lieutenant in his Senior year, when all of a sudden he decided he would cast his lot with real soldiers and bag a (lerman or two. He did not get the German, but did see some real old scrapping, and man- aged ro get back to school to finish before getting gray. There is only one thing he is not able to see, and that is why the women used to come for miles to kiss his feet when he was a little fellow, and wliy they even refuse to do it now, as he hasn ' t grown nuich.

DAY was born April 16, 1895. on a farm at Clarksburs;-, Montgoiner)- County, Md. His genius was displayed at an early age, graduating from the Rockville High School, when he completed both the Commercial and Academic courses in four years. Ere long after his matriculation at M. A. C. in 1914, students and faculty rec- ognized in Frank a striking personality. Frank is a leader and an executive. The record of activities show that. And while attending faithfully to many official duties he maintained a scholarship ranlring among the best ever established at M. S. C. Meanwhile he has worked his way through College. In the fall of 1917 Frank withdrew from College to enlist as an army field clerk. He served in Lon- don, Paris, Italy, and Belgium, traveling more than 5000 miles in Europe. He returned to the States in August, 1919, and re-entered College in September. Upon the reorganization of the Student Assembly, Frank was elected to its presidency, probably the biggest and most honorable position that the student body could be- stow upon any of its members. Great responsibilities and honors await Frank. His course is Agricultural Education, but we expect no one course to limit his capabilities, for Frank Day ' s initiative will spell success anywhere. Here ' s to Frank, good-natured as the days are Success awaits his kind. SixtM- three N : THOMAS VICTOR DOWNIN W ' illiamsport, Md. Agricultural Education Washington County Hisfh School FRESHMAN Y.

The pinnacle of his collegiate fame was reached in 1919, when he captured first place in judging both butter and cheese at the National Dairy Show. Evidently Tom early adopted the motto " See everything and spend nothing, " tor he spent the summer of 1916 sight-seeing in Mexico, and later, taking advan- tage of the World War, toured Europe as a member of General Pershing ' s Staff luider the nom de plume of Second Lieutenant, A. G. D. Occasionally Downin thinks of marriage. P.ut. thinking ahead, as he usually does, he is probably worrying more about the cost of baby carriages than of cap- turing a wife. We do not know. Anyway, if he is as successful in selecting a partner as he has been in choosing roommates who wear the same sized clothes as he does, he should be extremely successful. So here ' s luck !

In his Junior year, when so many of our young men went into the service, " Pete " ' " went out " for aviation, and what a " flyer " he turned out to lie. Upon his discharge, following the close of the war, not satisfied with his already faithful service, he acted as a passenger pilot.

When he wobbled up the campus hill like a silly gander, " Hocks ' ' was a sight for the gods. Recorder Spence and his retinue of fatherly proctors immediately registered George as an " animal nut. " ' and it was not until his Sophomore year that " Hocks " was able to convince the " profs " that he wanted to take chemistry. Since that lime he has greatly added to the calcimining effect of the " lab. " " Hocks ' " success at State can be directly traced to the fine start he made in 1916. He was one of the last of the family of " Cabs " — that explains all. No side of his education, not even his studies, was neglected. That our country lad was soon to become a social parasite was evidenced from the first. During his stay of four years here George has captured many of the fair sex ' s hearts, and we feel .issured that " Hocks " will continue to be the same old " ladies ' man. " It was at " Cabs " that George first starred in athletics. Those end runs against Day ' s Haytossers were ever famous. There he learned to swing a wicked lacrosse stick. Boxing and slugging matches with his pal Atkinson and poker games with " Lony " Morgan were his favorite pastimes. As ati einbryo naval avi- ator he made a pretty good " gimper. " Seriously, though, " Hocks " has the qualifications and forcefulness with which to at ' ain honors after he leaves College. His indefatigability and unselfishness have led to real popularity and have gained many friendships. His classmates know George will ever be a leader. Seven u-fUJo I A ELIZABETH GAMBRILL HOOK I0I2 W.

" OU are now gazing upon the homely countenance of the lowest form of animal existence — the " Shanty Irish. " This Irish lad came down here from little old New York, and his idea in coming was to show " the guys of State " what a real " tough guy ' ' is like. Instead of find- ing a bunch of babies here, he was very much surprised when he found a " tougher gang " than his gunman friends of the Bowery were. These so-called tough guys are always ready for trouble, so when the war broke out, " Cholly, " the dashing, daring yotmg fellow, proceeded to Plattsburg and won hitnself a comtnission. He was assigned to the 165th Infantry, which was the old Irish 69th of New York, and got on one of the first transports bound for Liverpool. He served as First Lieutenant in the Regimental Machine Gun Company of the 165111, and was lucky enough to get only one wound in nine trips " over the top. " After he had helped make the world " safe for democracy ' ' he buzzed up the hill one day in the fall of lyiy in an old army ' bus, with more service stri]5es than the driver.

Who among us has not seen the results of this characteristic? In his freshman year, through the value of his assistant coaching, we were able to produce one of the best teams in our history. He was a mainstay in stop- ping the onflow of Penn State during our game with them in 1917. After Thanks- giving Tubby left to enter the service, and remained in it eighteen months before returning to us again. By hard and industrious work he was able to regain his collegiate standing, and so will graduate with his class this year. But stop ! Though busy with studies, mess hall and other activities, he was able to dig deep into the realms of medicine and discover a new disease of horses — ammonia. He hasn ' t told us how to combat it. but. nevertheless, the discovery has placed him in our hall of fame.

His many friends feel sure that if a best all-around athlete in the South were to be selected. Bob would be the man for the position this year.

His studies were not enough to keep the mind of such a genius occupied, so he began a conquest which was doomed to terminate in the court. He has to date been sued for breach of promise three times, and it is said that another case has been filed against him, to be tried in the March term.

" N the fall of 1916 the Registrar of the College lengthened one of the pages of his book, and the illustrious Mr. Ernest Charles Edward Ruppert, Jr., attached his signature thereto. During his first two years here not much was seen of Eddie, be- cause, being a day student, he was on the campus during class hours only. However, when the S. A. T. C. of 1918 brought the students of the college closer together by requiring them all to reside here, Eddie realized the numerous advantages of being a boarding student, and became one from that time on. Eddie immediately interested himself in college activities, and one glance at the list of honors listed above will give the reader a fair idea of his many attainments atid of the liberal education thus acquired. Ruppert is a hard worker. He is lavish with midnight oil, even though this oil might frequently be gasoline, consumed on the road from College to Wash- ington. But, to become serious once more, Eddie is not bad for an only child. The genius to suggest big things, the courage to attempt them, and the ability to accomplish them — this is an epitome of Eddie ' s characteristics as gleatied from his scholastic record.

After his discharge from the service he returned to M. S. C. to complete his course in chemistry. We look for great things from " Pud " in the scientific world after graduation, especially along the lines of physi- ological and agricultural chemistry. There are many things that " Pud " has to contend with during his Senior year which seem to worry the poor fellow considerably. First, during the summer of 1919 " he was disappointed in love. " Now he holds classes every Tuesday and Friday nights discussing plans for the Hachelors ' Club and also rendering good advice to the " Rats " regarding love affairs. Secondly, he has taken it upon him- self to exercise paternal authority over his roommates, especially " Child " Edel, the little 200-pound six-foot two-inch boy. Thirdly, " Pud " lies awake nights try- ing to solve the problein. What is the position of a Senior? Everyone knows " Pud " is a fine fellow, and through his geniality, big-heart- edness and courtesy has acquired a large circle of friends. Here ' s wishing him the best of everything on his life ' s journey from the Class of ' 20. N ' mel -one s lS l-s ts tvt ' v ' lN ls tN I Jnittals? I I I I S. E. A. — Surely enough alibis. E. B.

Yea, and the source of this light was a regenerated institution. Some saw the first glimmer of this light and came early to bask in its rays. Unlike the dinosaur and the icthyosaurus, these animals are still with us. They are " Aust " Diggs, " Zeek " Ezekiel, " Joe " Frere, " Flat-foot " Gray, " Pap " Knode, " Bob " Knode, " Dumps " Lang- rall and " Toady " Riggs. Then came the beginning of the greatest era in Maryland ' s history. A revolution took place m her State college. Maryland Agricultural College died to give existence to newer, better and greater Maryland State Col- lege. The transition was gradual but certain, and in the midst of this change the Class of 1920 entered. We all like to look back on those days when we " toted " laundry bags, sang paragraphs from " The Fungus Diseases of Plants " to the tune of " My Country, ' Tis of Thee, " all the innumerable tasks of " Rats. " As " Frank " Day says, " By not having Rat rules, these Freshmen of today don ' t know what a good time they ' re missing. " Then followed a summer when many unenlightened Marylanders had a chance to see what extraordinary developments result from a year of college life. When the next fall came we were, for a number of reasons, eager to return to our Alma Plater. We had assimilated that strange, indefinite thing called college spirit; we had already appreciated the value of the little " higher education " that we had received, and we wanted more ; but chiefly did we want to return to see that the fresh crop of Rats would be " trained up in the way they should go. " The Class of 1920 was the last class to codify a set of Rat rules and to enforce them for an entire year. Our rules were reasonable and very liberal, but they were rigidly, unflinchingly enforced. Ask any 1921 man what he thought of " Jawn " Sterling and his fellow Fu Flux Fanners. In selecting the colors for Rat insignia the Class of ' 20 m;ide manifest its artistic taste. One of the local belles stopped the coy, bashful, blushing, biting of her delicate lower lip long enough to say, " Oh, I simply think those new boys o fun-nv. Um-hum, and aren ' t those little white and gre-en caps de-arah ? " Nlnel -seven ■artjf gSfetorg of tl|e Qllaaa of 19211 Every Rat that year was a fellow that any mother (who wanted to raise a preacher model i860) might be proud of. In interclass contests those Rats were wiped off their feet and the banner of 1920 flew all year. It may be of historical interest to note that " Dumps " Langrall during this year organized the Canners ' Club. The canners wanted to have a picture and a write-up in the Reveille, but the cost per capita was too great. During our Sophomore vacation many of our class heeded the call of the country, and when we assembled on the campus that fall it was to enlist in the S. A. T. C. This was the year of the influenza epidemic, one of whose victims was a jovial, prepossessing classmate of ours — " Fats " Baurman. In January, 1919, Maryland State began to settle down to normal conditions. The war had reduced the membership of our class to an embarrassingly small number. We had the responsibility of publishing the 1919 Reveille and of con- ducting the Prom. The former task was made much easier by the ])oetic genius of " Eddie " Ruppert. Much help on the latter undertaking was given by Ady and Bissel, who had recently learnt to dance. And some Prom it wa.s — oh, boys ! Many cases date back to that gay evening. During our Senior year ' Davidson, Day, Elliott, Eppley, Merrill, Sando and Turnett of the Class of 1918 joined our class. Axt, Burnside, Clendaniel, Conyngton, Downing, Hicks, Perkins, Pratt, Sewell and Starr of the Class of 1919 also joined our ranks. The vicissitudes of war prevented these men from graduating with their classes. There are certain duties which must be performed by Seniors. " Frank " Day ably presided over the Student Assembly, and the executive chairs in all of the organizations were held by men of the Class of 1920. " Dutch " Axt, " Hap " Carroll II. " Pete " Elliot and " Wop " Hicks are the lacrosse stars of the class. " Toady " Riggs, " Pap " Knode and " Bob " Knode have been the backbone of the Varsity baseball team for the last four years. " Swede " Eppley and " Bob " Knode were the strong points of the football team, which took the State championship. " Toady " Riggs made the All-South Atlantic eleven. While speaking of athletics we might as well consider some of the lesser games. The star parlor athletics of the class are " Brazz " Burnside and " Eddie " Ruppert. " Speedy " Merrill is the leading aesthetic boxer of Maryland. " Julius " Conyngton holds the South Atlantic championship for masculine vampire. The Class of 1920 is the first class to enter Maryland State College. Miss Elizabeth Hook is the first co-ed to complete a four-year course at this institution. It is due to her courage and rare personality that Maryland State is co-educational. Yes, we have done much to be proud of during our four years here, but we must realize that the greatest and best things that have come to us are due to the efllorts of President Woods and to the work of the capable faculty with which he has sur- rounded himself. Maryland State, we are leaving you now. Whatever success we may have in the future will be due to your trainmg; whatever failures, due to ourselves. Old Alma Mater, our hearts are full of love and gratitude to you, and we leave believ- ing that though your past has been great, it shall be eclipsed by your future. M. D. S.

One Hundred and Eight EV l.iL.I-1 " BILLIE " ' DAVE ' W ELL, here is my picture in the Reveille, and I suppose that a few words are necessary to de- fend its position. I well remember that fall day in 1917 when I entered " Old State, " too scared for words. But biology I loved, and later was bound to learn. It was a " scarey " proposition, coming to a college as un- used to co-eds, such as this college was then. No, the " Roofs " didn ' t yell at me, and my classmates were very kind. Aren ' t they just the finest bunch of fellows in the world ? They named me " Billie " just to make me feel " at home. " — Harriet Willette Bland. G ALDWELL is my cognomen, and I ' m from Washington, D. C. Out into the land of honey and sor- ghum I wandered to seek the light. College Park has held my trunk for the past three years while I have en- deavored to convince those who have taught me that I am eligilile for a de- gree. Some days things have looked blue, but most of the time my ambition has been stimulated by noble aspira- tions to " get there. " I am a " States- man. " — D. R. Caldwell. One Hunilrcd and Nine " KING " ' AUST " X T was through a delayed appoint- ment to West Point and my ambi- tion during- this interim to thor- oughly prepare myself that I came to Maryland State, and matriculated in the School of Civil Engineering. With the termination of war, however, the desire " to become a soldier ' ' dismissed itself, and I declined the finally due appointment. I am now in the School of Liberal Arts pursuing a pre-law course. I was influenced in coming to this particular college for two reasons : First, I hail from a " Maryland State town, " and secondly, I have a brother who is a graduate of the institution. I shall never regret the step. — C. Walter Coi.e. (13 E HEN eight years old my idea was that some day I should become some great man, such as Presi- dent of the U. S., a street-car conduc- tor or a bellhop. The closest resem- blance to any of my would-be profes- sions I found across the street. He was a " big boy " who used to come from a place called M. A. C. Natu- rally he was a hero in our community, and I can remember following him around the street doing " Right shoul- der arms ! ' ' with an American flag. His pretty gray uniform struck my eye, and right then I decided M. A. C. would be my goal. Here I am, an al- most graduated " Liberal Artist, " with as great a love for his College as a man could have. — Austin C. Diggs. One Hundred and Ten li " KID " " LEETHA " llEARD a great deal about M. S. C, and on the ist of October, 1917, I started for College Park. When I saw the large smokestack I rang the bell and got off at the station. I walked up the hill to the office and there registered. I wa.s assigned to a room in Calvert Hall. It was here that I received the knowledge of the customs and traditions of the College. — E. C. Donaldson. YISUPPOSE I missed a lot in not coming to State until my junior year, but " better late than never. " I couldn ' t let Billy Bland be the only girl in the Class of 1920. I graduated in the home economics course at State Normal School last year, and in the summer took a position of dietition in a farmerette camp. It was there that I acquired the nickname of " Cream Sauce Eddie. " Here I am just " Bobby. " Oh, yes, I like State fine, but a little less chemistry and a little more tennis would make it ideal. -LiTH. ' v Gordon Edmonds.

One Hundred and Nineteen " BOB " " JOE " j H ERE were five reasons why I !gg came to Maryland State. It was close to Baltimore, had a good farming course, was not a co-ed school, had a reputation in athletics, and a bunch of good fellows. I live in Washington now, so the " close to Baltimore " part proved all wrong. In- stead of taking farming I took engi- neering. The school is now co-ed, and everyone knows my dislike of women. But the good re])utation of the school in athletics has been increased tenfold, and there is not a better bunch of fel- lows in the United States. Dynamite could not move me from this school. — R. M. Rausch. Y ARRIVED at M. S. C. in the fall of iyi6, just an unsophisticated Freshman from the mud and bumps of Rockville. I wanted to learn " why was an ampere, and when does a volt, " but a year of the discipline committee dampened my enthusiasm, and the next year I left. The S. A. T. C. soon laid its heavy hand upon me, however, and I returned to my long- lost " Doc " and " Mike. " My Junior year has been spent in trying to dem- onstrate how easily an engineer can get by without studying. — losEi ' ii G. Reading.

The " Spirit of State " thrilled me. and when time came to decide where I should go. nothing but State ajipealed to me. My ambition to become a great chemist is starting to be a reality, for now I can wash test tubes with quite a bit of ease. While still a Junior, I hate to think that in a little less than two years our companionship will be no more. — John D. Scheuch. fwi Y back yonder in the spring of 1917 I was a Senior in the Wash- ington County High School at Hagerstown. At that time I was con- fident that there was nothing more in the fields of knowledge that could be explored. Then someone mentioned electricity and Maryland State. Now, the great " Ben " Franklin had always been an ideal of mine, so in the fall my trunk was packed and to State I came, hayseed and everything, to begin my rathood days. Then — but enough has been told, for from then on my history is already a painful memory to you all. -Hermann H. Sener.

I en- tered the institution. ■ — Edgar Bennett Starkey. Q FTER an unsucces.sful high-school career I decided to go to college, and immediately my thoughts turned toward Maryland State. I have never regretted my choice. At first it seemed that I would be unable to enter the Sub-Freshman class. If it were not for the untiring efforts of Prof. T. H. Spence in coaching me I would probably be a Freshman instead of a junior today. Although I may never he able to repay Professor Spence, I shall remain eternally grateful. — N. ' . Stonestreet.

X T was in the spring of 1917 that three dignified Seniors from a prominent Maryland high school, attired in immaculate blue uniforms, strutted " up the hill " to see if the col- lege " was for sale. " Naturally, I was one of them. Passing by a company of State ' s " tin soldiers, " as we termed them, we were politely given the " Razz. " ' I became angry and vowed that some da} ' I would show " those guys " how to drill. Consequently, 1 entered State, expecting to be made Commandant at once and hence get my revenge. After the first day. how- ever, I found I wasn ' t " ankle high " when it came to drill, and my anger turned quickly to laughter.

Nowhere else on the Eastern coast could I find a school that would be ca- pable of teaching agriculture which could be generally applied in my own home community as at Maryland State, and each succeeding year has strengthened my belief.

One Hundred and TTvcnt i-nine B uitior " MistortJ igRRIVING at Maryland State in the fall of 1917, we started on our four-year journey. We were the freshest of the fresh. In a few days the freshness began to rapidly disappear as the Sophs took us in hand to " whip " us into shape as college men. A few days later we called a meeting, drew up a constitution and elected a president. Our selection was Willis R. Brundage (Pigeon). He was an ideal man for the job, and well did he pilot the class through the year, resigning in the spring to enter the service of Uncle Sam. Our Freshman Class was one long to be remembered by us. It was the last Freshman Class under the old regime of " Rat " ' rule and discipline committee, and as a class we were unsurpassable. For the Varsity Football Team we furnished Snyder and Stubbs ; for baseball, Holder, Eiseman, Snyder, Smith and Groton ; for basket-ball, Eiseman and Stone. In oratory. Cole won a place among not only the highest in M. S. C, but among all the colleges in the State. The following spring we elected new officers for the next year. Cole was chosen president, and only after his term had expired did the class realize the full value of his leadership. " Billie " Bland, our one co-ed and friend of all, was elected treasurer. When we left in the spring of 1918, no one could foresee the changes that eventually took place. As we drifted back in the fall of 1918 we found M. S. C. a military camp in every sense of the word. Uncle Sam had taken over the college and installed the organization of the S. A. T. C. Throwing aside all thought of study, we started in with a vim as only ' 21 can. Many of our classmates were the acting non-coms, of the organization, and still others had been commissioned as officers and were either " over there " or in the U. S. A. acting as instructors. This period was of short duration, however, as the war ended in a few weeks and the college once more became an institution of learning. When we came back on January 6, 1919, to begin the second term we were beginning the greatest year a class ever went through in the annals of the College. There were 125 " Rats, " and our class numbered y, but well had we been taught and better had we learned. Two days later the " Rats " had decided that there was a place on the earth they did not own, and, indeed, in a few more days they began to act almost human and display some signs of intelligence. We gave them the benefit of our learning and experience willingly and gladly, but our instruction lasted only about two weeks. It was at this time that our class made the greatest sacrifice possible for a Sophomore class, but we did it unflincliingly and luihesitatingly, displaying the real mettle of the Class of ' 21. We voluntarily abolished " Rat rules ' ' and pledged our undivided support to Student Government. This was the greatest step for- ward ever taken by any class in the history of the College. Again did our class display its athletic stars. On that ever-famous S. A. T. C. Championship Football Squad were Snyder, Manning, Stubbs, Gardner, Stone One Hundred and Thirty 3 as D 315 D and Groton. On the South Atlantic Championship Baseball Team we boasted of Eiseman, Snyder, Groton, Holder, and Sullivan (assistant manager). In basket- ball were Stonestreet, Eiseman, Stone, Smith and Wilhelm. On the track were Wilhelm, Twilley and Peddicord. On the tennis team were Slanker, Haig and Stone — three-fourths of the team. Not only in athletics and Student Government was our class interested, how- ever. There were members in societies, fraternities, county and city clubs, on the Reveille Board, in the Grange, and every other organization in the campus. In the battalion many of the Class of ' 21 were instructors. Later in the year, with the usual foresight, we held our election of class officers and the Reveille Board. Who will not say that ' 21 did her share and more as Sophs ? When we returned as Juniors this year we had so much ahead of us that the task seemed impossible, but a glance at our former achievements gave us courage, and we have already made great progress in the year ' s work. " Nat " Goodwin, our president, left us at the end of the first term, and Eiseman was elected to succeed him. The great feature of our Junior year was our Junior Prom., of which we are justly proud. It was a magnificent success and a worthy recognition of the senior- ity due to Class of ' 20 — our revered Seniors. Along with this unsurpassed affair, which again shows the true worth, ability and talent among the martyrs of ' 21, came the publication of this Reveille, which, according to all indications and reports, is to be not only the best Reveille ever published, but an annual equal to any in the country. This is something to be proud of, and we are greatly indebted to our Editor-in-Chief, " King " Cole, who is entirely responsible for its many attractive, " catchy " and novel ideas. We were wise in electing such a man for the job. We cannot close this history and at the time feel satisfied, without summing up our three years ' work by saying that the present Junior Class — the Class of ■ ' 21 — has been truly a wide-awake and active group, has always worked toward the interest of the College and its fellow-classes, and by so doing has been the greatest class State has ever possessed. We conscienciously say this : We abolished " Rat " rules and promiscuous hazing, consequently starting the idea of our present Stu- dent Government ; we extended a Junior Prom to the Seniors unexcelled by any such former afifair ; we published a Reveille twice as large and three times as elaborate and complete as any edited before, and we will leave College owing no debts for someone else to pay. We do not say this boastfully or to discredit any other classes, but we say it because we are proud of our record and want to give due recognition and credit to our leaders who have been instrumental in achieving these heights. We trust next year, our Senior year, we will be able as Seniors to do more than ever for our fellow-classes, our Faculty, our College and our Alumni, to whom we dedicated our Reveille to show our appreciation, respect and esteem.

C. after a summer variously spent. All our ex- pectations have heen fulfilled, as the past year has been even more exciting than we anticipated. When we left College last spring we had behaved and managed our- selves as no other Freshman Class had ever done before. Not only had we starred in the social and athletic worlds, but this broad-minded Class of ' 22 had voluntarily taken upon itself, when the Class of ' 21 abolished Rat rules, to make and to keep a set of rules which were in line with the best traditions of the College. On returning to College this fall we decided to let the Freshmen alone for a while and see if they could not work oul their own salvation without the necessity of Sophomore supervision and sec their way clear to adopting and keeping rules similar to those that we had adopted. This was a very pretty dream, but it did not work out. After leaving the Freshmen alone for nearly six months we con- cluded that they would have to be taken in hand. A committee was appointed to see to the keeping of the Freshman Code, and after that the blue and yellow caps were worn. Freshmen perambulated only on the campus paths, and in gen- eral behaved as well-conducted Freshmen should. The large number of co-eds in the Freshman Class led to quite an animated discussion as to whether they should be forced to go becapped and to keep the other rules. For a while they were left alone, but then the members of the Sophomore Class resolved that all Freshmen were expected to obey these rules, and if these " rabbits " were not Freshmen, what were they? So thenceforth the co-eds obeyed the code with the rest of their class. So much for our very heavy duties as caretakers for the Freshmen. But we did not spend all our time on them. In the society world our class kept up with the times. Right in line with our reputation of last year the Sophomores gave a dance, one of the most popular of a year of many and popular dances. This was no common dance by any means, and we had for an orchestra a band that played such music as is usually heard only at Junior Proms. Our guests, the upper classmen, turned out in great numbers, and all declared it an extremely enjoyable afifair. The Class of ' 22, as usual, contributed many men to the athletic field. Sally Bosley and Zeke Bailey were our " M " ' men in football, while Alike Ready, Humpty Gilbert, Bill Barrall, Gus Hines, Charlie Molster and Johnny Moran did their share in bringing home the State championship. The good right arm of Vic Keene IS the standby of our baseball team, and Bailey is a worthy catcher for such a man. The most important part of the baseball team, the battery, is thus furnished by our class. Humpty Gilbert and Bill Barrall are our shining lights in basket-ball. One Hundred and Thirt i-six aie 315 D Drill may not rightly be called athletics, but there, too, our class has proved its worth by its men and their deeds. Ten Sophomores held ranks beginning at corporals and going up. And how splendidly they kept order in the ranks and disciplined the raw recruits ! Our class is not lacking in other college activities. Otto Reinmuth was in the intersociety debate. In the plays of the Dramatic Club, on the staff of the " Review. " ' among Glee Club members — everywhere — will be found enrolled mem- bers of ' 22. In fact, in every phase of college life we are well represented. How- ever, in spite of our numerous activities, our class has found time to study, and feels that its members are old enough and earnest enough to get all out of studies that it is possible to get. We entered College under very unusual circumstances, coming as we did in a time of war, and joining straight from the S. A. T. C. We were the largest Freshman Class that had ever been matriculated at State, and but few men have left in this our Sophomore year. Our class has, moreover, been re-enforced by the addition of new men who had left college on account of the war. To these men ' 22 extends a hearty welcome and assures them that we are very glad to have them in our class, and hope that they will stay by us to the hard and bitter end — graduation. The Sophomore year is the last play year of the College course. Before us stretches out our Junior year with all its responsibilities and hard work. The Prom, looms up on one side and the Reveille on the other. However, the Class of ' 22 feels that it will be well able to take over some of the responsibilities of man and womanhood — nay, even feels a fierce pleasure in doing so. And yet in looking back we feel that it would have been impossible to have spent a happier year of work and play than we spent while in our Sophomore year. But we have left childhood behind us, and with maturing minds we will carry with us into the new Junior Class the well-known standards and ambitions of that famous class — nineteen twenty-two.

One Hundred and Fort -lrvo ajO D 3 l tslory Class of 192 RANKLY, 148 new members suddenly landing at Maryland State College last fall surely must have caused a sensation, if not a difficult problem. How to assimilate so large a class was the question. " Rai rules " had been abolished last year, and it seemed that thty would not return. In compliance with the tradition — to hold a Freshman entertainment for the benefit of the student body, faculty and the i)ublic — as established subse- quent to the abolishment of " Rat rules " during the year 1918-19, the Freshmen readily took up the idea. The entertainment, which proved to be a great success, was something in the nature of a burlesque on hazing. The whole class wor- .=hipped at the throne of " St. Fag and Fan, " then took part in many " stunts. " Who does not remember the scene from " Snipe Hunting, " given entirely by the co-eds, or their song entitled " Style All the While " ? Yes. co-education has begun in real earnest. There are thirteen girls in the Freshman Class, and so far they have proved far from unlucky. Even though " Rat rules " had suffered a sorrowful death, the presence of its substitute, the Freshman code, was soon in evidence— the paths of the campus were brilliantly decorated by the orange and blue Freshmen caps. The class is a loyal supporter of all of the organizations on the campus. The Freshmen are in for everything. We were well represented on the All-Maryland Footliall Team, and both our Freshman football and baseball teams have or are making creditable showings. Many of our members are in the Clee Club, and the members of the Maryland State Trio are Freshmen. The Class Dance was even a bigger success than we had hoped for. In spite of the " stormy " weather, members, upper-classmen and friends trooped into the hall and danced to their hearts ' content beneath the garlands of maroon and white and the beautiful new class banner, which had not been injured in the " storm. " And so we have stood together, eaten together, worked together, played together, and together we will doff our " Rat caps " and take up the duties of worthy Sophomores. «3- Sb One Hundred and Forl ' -lhree HAPPY RECOLLECTIONS 3E a Hatcher H.

Women are admitted to all courses and under the same conditions as men. Students may be admitted at any time, but should enter at the beginning of one of the three terms. Students may be admitted by examination, or by certificate from an accredited high school or preparatory school, or by trans- fer from another college. In general, the requirements for admission to the Freshman Class are the same as those prescribed for graduation by the ap- proved high schools of Maryland. An applicant must ofifer for admission at least 15 units of credit by examination, or by a certificate from an approved high school or its equivalent. A unit represents a year ' s study in any subject in a secondary school and constitutes approximately a quarter of a full year ' s work. It presup- poses a school year of 36 to 40 weeks, recitation periods of from 40 to 60 min- utes, and for each study four or five class exercises a week. Two laboratory periods in any science or vocational study are considered as equivalent to one class exercise. Of the fifteen units presented, seven are specifically designated — eight for the School of Engineering, and eight may be elected from any subject that the high school offers toward graduation. A deficiency of one unit is approved, but the student cannot become a candidate for a degree until all entrance requirements are satisfied. Students are admitted without examination if they can present certificates showing that they have completed the necessary entrance subjects. The certificates presented by the candidates must be officially certified by the principals of the schools attended, and must state in detail the work completed. Blank certificates conveniently arranged for the desired data will be sent upon application. Candidates not admitted by certificates will be required to take written exam- mations on the entrance subjects. These examinations are ofifered in June and September. Exact dates will be sent upon request. One hundreJ and siifji-lnio V Kh I e- lyi-L l-n ■- ,:•-■.: ij ' n clionl oi One hundred and sixt f-three [TTlEAN P. W.

When agriculture stops, all other works of the world must stop. It has been the aim of the School of Agriculture to modify its curricula from time to tmie to keep pace with the growth of the industry. The faculty has tried to equip the students who go out from this de- partment with tools that will enable them to fight the battle of life successfully, and its members desire to take this opportunity to ofifer their sincere best wishes for those who leave this year and for those who have preceded them. The teaching of a rational, jjractical system of farming is the primary aim of the School of Agriculture. The permanent prosperity of rural citizens is in direct proportion to the producing capacity of the land. The most successful farmer is the one who can produce a maximum quantity per acre of the best quality of agricultural products at a minimum cost and dispose of them in the markets to the best advantage. The modern farmer must know the kinds of plants to grow and how to improve them ; how to maintain orchards, gardens, and attractive sur- roundings ; something of the soil, its cultivation and conservation of fertility ; how to combat ]5lant diseases and insect pests ; the selection, breeding and feeding of livestock ; the marketing of farm products ; modern farm buildings, farm equip- ment and conveniences of the home; and finally, how to be leaders and promote good citizenship in rural life. The curricula are planned to give the student a general knowledge of all phases of agriculture and related sciences, but at the same time afford an oppor- tunity to specialize along the lines in which he is particularly interested. The plan provides for those who wish to take up professions, such as teaching, research, county agent work, as well as farming. One hundred and sixty-six □ 3 a JV_gnc«ItnraI orbty OFFICERS H. M.

Stu- dents in the Agricultiiral courses follow lines of study that diverge more and more as they near graduation, and nothing is better for men specializing in Agronomy, Horticulture or Animal Husbandry than to know the peculiar bias of the students in each particular course. An association in which these students can exchange ideas and get each other ' s viewpoint is a large factor in giving broadness of mind and preventing a narrow, provincial attitude. When men interested in the same things are organized they can secure notable speakers who can give much valuable information to their hearers. The proximity of Maryland State to Washington makes it easy for the Agricultural Society to have trained men at its meetings whenever the members desire. This opportunity is frequently made use of, and the agricultural student in this way gets facts that are never gained in class. Man is a social animal, and must have intercourse with his fellows. The Agricultural Society fills an important role in furnishing relaxation and amuse- ment to the Agricultural students. The programs not only are interesting and amusing, but after the formal meetings are concluded the rest of the evenings are passed in social enjoyment and good-fellowship. This not only helps to make the students happy and contented, but is an important element in building up College spirit. The place of the Agricultural Society in the lives of the students in the School of Agriculture is a high one.

Later he regis- tered at the Johns Hopkins University and spent four years, 1892-1896, pur- suing courses in mathematics, physics and astronomy. The degree of Doctor of Philosophy was conferred on him in 1896. The faculty of the old Maryland Agricultural College had the pleasure of welcoming Dr. Taliaferro into its membership in up , when he was made Professor of Civil Engineering and Physics.

IL - _- - - - _-=j NGINEERING is an ancient profession, but at no time in its history has it played so prominent a part in the world ' s activities as at the present day. The profession of Engineering is so broad in scope as to enter to a greater or less extent into practically every field of human endeavor, and as modern engineering is so closely related to economic progress, it is no exaggeration to state that the prosperity, and even the industrial existence, of this country is very largely dependent upon the Engineer- ing profession. The achievements of Engineering in the fields of transportation, of electric transmission and of power development, have been the means of creating our vast industrial enterprises. Sanitation and the development of public utilities have made possible modern community life. The invention of labor-saving machinery and the adaptation of urban conveniences to rural conditions have revolutionized farming and made country life enjoyable. The discoveries of modern science as applied in engineering practice have worked miracles for the better health, com- fort and convenience of modern civilization. The profession of Engineering offers excellent opportunities to capable and well-trained men. To be fitted for the higher positions in the profession, men must not only be trained in the necessary technical work, but must have such lib- eral training as will enable them to handle the economic, social and human phases of a problem. The School of Engineering recognizes the exacting character of work demanded of the modern engineer, and the various courses have been so arranged as to give the training in the fundamental sciences and in established engineering practice by a combination of work in the classroom, shop, laboratory and field. The aims which have served as controlling considerations in the laying out ot the instruction in the courses of the School of Engineering are : To train men to think ; to lay a broad and deep foundation with an outline of the superstructure which can be filled in gradually from the practice of the profession ; to encourage the student so thoroughly to understand each problem that he can apply the same principles intelligently to the solution of entirely different kinds of problems ; and finally, to train men to be good citizens as well as good engineers.

When the society was first organized, only men in the Junior and Senior classes of the Engineering courses were admitted as members. In the fall of 1917, however, the Freshman and Sophomore classes were admitted as members and allowed to vote. This made all students in Engineering members of the society. But since that time the society has made such rapid progress that in Septem- ber of 1919 a Seminar course was inaugurated in addition to the regular Engi- neering Society. The Seminar course, with Junior and Senior engineers as mem- bers, is a course consisting of meetings once every week that there is not a meeting cf the Engineering Society. At these meetings short talks are given by the students, members of the fac- ulty, or men already engaged in the practice of Engineering. Many reputable Engineers have been kind enough to come from Washington and other cities, and the talks that these men have given have been of inestimable value to the young student engineers. Meetings of this kind are very instructive and afford the students practice in technical public speaking, which every engineer needs as an aid to his profession. With these sterling qualities the society has proved to be one of efficient and help- ful service to all who are directly connected with it, and to the College.

It should be noted that it was the work of chemistry as related to agri- culture that brought about the establishment of agricultural colleges in this country and Europe, of which our College was a pioneer. But, largely due to financial difficulties incident to the Civil War, the progress of the College, and with it the Chemistry Department, was greatly retarded. It was not til after 1886, due to the establishment of the Experiment Stations as depart- ments of the Land Grant colleges, enabling the employment of a number of scien- tific workers in common, that there was much progress. The real epoch, however, in the development of the Chemical Department was in the latter part of 1890, due to the second Morrill Act. The College faculty was enlarged, a new Depart- ment of Agricultural Chemistry was created early in 1891, with the present dean of the School of Chemistry in charge. This department was also to develop the fertilizer inspection, a law establishing this work having been enacted about this time. The present laundry building was erected to accommodate the new depart- ment. This connected with the old laboratory, a brick building of about the same size directly east. In the reorganization of the College in i8y2 the two depart- ments were consolidated under the present head. The quarters for Chemistry being inadequate, the present Chemistry Building was erected in 1896, but was not equipped and occupied ' til 1897. The desks in the State inspection laboratories were moved from the old laboratory — the present laundry building ; those in Senior laboratory from the old brick building. At the time of moving into the present laboratory the assistants in Chemistry were Mr. F. P. Veitch. now Dr. Veitch, chief of a laboratory of the U. S. Department of Agriculture; Mr. (now Dr.) W. W. Skinner, another chief of laboratory and one of the College trustees; Mr. H. C. Sherman, now Dr., and head of the de- partment of food and nutrition in Columbia University, New York, and Mr. F. B. Bomberger, now Dr. Bomberger, Assistant Director of the Extension. Just pre- vious to this another assistant was Mr. C. C. McDonnell, now chief of the insecti- cide and fungicide laboratory, U. S. Department of Agriculture. Lack of space prevents the mention of other assistants and graduates of the department. The Chemistry Department was the first to require a corps of assistants, and for a number of years was the largest department in the College. Its scope was enlarged in 1914 to " The Division of Applied Science, " when the Department of Bacteri- ology was established. In 1917 it became the " Division of General Science, " and in 1919 the " School of Chemistry. " For the coming year the school will have at least five professors specializing in agricultural, industrial, organic, physical, physiological and general cliemistry, with several assistants and fellows, and at least four chemists engaged in State work, in the analysis of fertilizers, feeds and lime, together with several inspectors, clerks and stenographers. A picture of the Junior Class in this building, with Dr. Bomberger in the fore- ground, is shown on page 42. One hundred and scvenlv-cighl D 3 (!ll|tmtiiral onctu OFFICERS M. D.

Many of the members who have been employed during the war by the Gov- ernment have returned to College to pursue their chosen course of study. At the beginning of the scholastic year the students registered in Chemistry were called together by President Sterling, and plans for subsequent meetings were made. Meetings are held every two weeks, the time being devoted to lec- tures, talks and speeches by the student members on the subjects in which each is most deeply interested. There have been splendid lectures given recently on the following subjects: ■ ' The German Gases Used During the War, " " Coal and Its By-Products, " " Our Gas Mask, " " Rock Phosphates as a Fertilizer, " and " The Manufacture of White Lead. " Occasionally a special program is presented by some eminent professional man who has already become famous in the industrial world. It is by this means that the organization gives its members a broader and more thorough insight into Chemistry, and keeps them in touch with the most modern developments of the industrial world along chemical lines. This is one of the many activities on the campus which no student can afiford to neglect, for it is the affiliation with organizations of this kind that broadens a man in his college career. =-0) One hundred and eighty ao Ifyi-L 5a bi @ bgpj-ffgfi ' ii ' a 13 D 3E a cljncl of One hundred and eighl -onc 3E l j -- " 9 ■ K ' 1 H i H ri j m pi wM ft M L n EAN T.

Rowe One hundred and clght )-three °1 3l5 rl]OoI nf tbeml JVrts SURVEY of the curricula of studies in the Maryland State College, from the opening of its doors to the public in 1859 down to the present, reveals the importance that has always been attached to the Liberal Arts as either the basal or the principle parts of collegiate instruction. For many years the academic branches of learning re- ceived all but exclusive attention, and during the past two decades, during which the institution has forged ahead in the various technical fields, there has never been a time when the content of all curricula, even though highly specialized, did not contain a significant proportion of academic studies. This accentuation dis- closes an unmistakable instinct on the part of Maryland people for that which both trains and humanizes. During the past year, prior to the reorganization of the College on a university basis, an investigation was carried on to ascertain how fully the scope of arts instruction, as then given, paralleled that of representative arts colleges in both Maryland and other States. The finding was more than sat- isfactory. As a result, it became a relatively easy problem of administration to organize out of the already existing subject-matter groups an academic division which could function as both an auxiliary and an independent unit. Such organ- ization was effected during the second term of 1918-1919, and now bears the name of the School of Liberal Arts. This school has as its object the offering of foundational and specialized instruction in language and literature and in social science. It aims to provide a stock upon which to graft technical and scientific education ; to prepare the foun- dation for business, law, journalism, administration, philanthropic work, the more responsible civil service positions, and the higher teaching positions, and to afford the opportunity for general cultivation and refinement of the mind. For administrative purposes the school includes the following departments : Ancient Languages and Philosophy ; Economics and Commerce ; English Lan- guage and Literature; History and Political Science; Journalism; Modern Lan- guages ; Public Speaking ; Library Science ; and Music. Curricula in the School of Liberal Arts are organized according to the group elective system. This arrangement undertakes to fit the course to the student rather than the student to the course, and particularly enables the school to embody in its curricula the following fundamental principles : First, such breadth of training as is characteristic of the well-educated man; second, a freedom of elec- lion that will motivate study and develop individuality and special aptitude; and, finally, the desirability of a student ' s deciding on a major interest so that there will be neither aimless nor dissipated effort. By the group elective system a part of every student ' s curriculum is pre- scribed. Such prescription, however, includes only what is foundational. The remainder of the student ' s work is elective. On satisfactory completion of two hundred and four trimester hours of col- lege work a student will be recommended for the degree of Bachelor of Arts.

HiCKEY Secretary-Treasurer One hundred and cighl -fivc as D Si 3S 01 JVrahnuir ndety T present the College is divided into seven distinct schools. Among the few of these seven which were reorganized and put on a more substantial basis in the past two years is the School of Liberal Arts. Prior to this the school was sadly innate, and was considered nothing more than a thing in existence, which occasionally was " called upon " in order to keep it from going entirely into decline. =im Today this school is co-ordinate with any on the campus, and, indeed, accord- ng to its wonderful progress in the past year, has arisen to the point where it has sufficient students to justify the organization of an Academic Society. Al- though in its infancy, this society has made splendid advancement ; in fact, like ihe Liberal Arts school, has elevated itself to an admirable height, so this society :ias lifted itself foremost among the clubs affiliated with the Schools of Agricul- ture, Engineering and Chemistry. The Graduate, Education, and Home Eco- nomics Schools, as yet, have formed no clubs. The purpose of this organization is to hold meetings in such a way that the Liberal Arts students will come together as a unit, with one central thought in mind and one main goal in view — that of getting as much literary and classical information aside from class work as will round oiU the student ' s mental impres- sions, and in that way develop men in the B.A. courses who will be fit for compe- tent and creditable work in graduate schools. It likewise furnishes a means of recreation that cannot be found elsewhere on the campus. One hundred and elght )-stx Dean C. O.

This depends largely on the tastes and habits of the individual. Books and sup])lies average about $30. Board and lodging may be obtained at boarding-houses or in private families in the vicinity of the College at a slightly higher rate than is offered by the College. In case of illness rec|uiring a special nurse and special medical attention, the expenses nnist be borne by the student. All College expenses are payable in advance, and no diploma will be conferred upon, nor any certificate issued to, a student who is in arrears in his account. When a student desires to withdraw from College he is required to give formal notification in writing to the Recorder, approved by his Dean and the Accountant. Charges for full time will be continued against him unless this is done. Students rooming outside the College may obtain board and lainidry from ihe College at same rates as those living in dormitories. Day students may get lunch at nearby lunchrooms. All College property in ]jossession of the individual student is charged against him, and the parent or guardian must assume responsibility for its return without injury other than results from ordinary wear. Damage to College property will l)e charged to the whole student body pro rata unless the offender is knf)wn. All students assigned to dormitories are required to ]5rovide themselves with one pair blankets for single bed, two ]iairs sheets for single bed, four pillow cases, six towels, one jiillow, two clotlies bags, one broom, and one wastebasket.

One hundred and niiietXt-se ' ven 3S D Bl 3S cl|ol£irsI]tps dixh flf-JViii HILE the College has no endowment nor loan funds with which to assist students, it has established for each high and preparatory school in Maryland and the District of Columbia one scholarship each year. For the three counties of Maryland which do not have high schools, Calvert, Charles and St. Mary ' s, one scholarship each year is given. These scholarships have a value of $50 and are credited to the holder ' s account. These scholarships are offered under the following conditions : 1. The holder must be a graduate of a high school and qualified to enter the Freshman class. 2. The appointment to the scholarships must be made by the county school superintendent upon recommendation of the principal of the high school. In mak- ing recommendations high-school principals should not only take into considera- non class standing, but also inability to meet the expenses of a college education. 3. The appointment shall be made for the term normally required to com- plete the curriculum selected. 4. The scholarship will be forfeited by indifference to scholastic work or by disregard of the rules of the College. 5. Scholarshijis awarded to preparatory schools and to high schools of Bal- timore and Washington shall be given on recommendation of the principals direct to the College. Recipients of preparatory school scholarships must be qualified to enter the Freshman class. 6. Applicants from Charles, St. Mary ' s and Calvert counties may take one of the non-collegiate curriculums, or, if entering from another college, may take one of four-year curriculums leading to a degree. Fellowships The College also offers a number of fellowships. These may be given either to its own graduates or the graduates of other colleges who desire to pursue •:ovirses in the Graduate School leading to advanced degrees. Fellowships are available in the School of Agriculture. School of Engineering and Mechanic Arts, School of Chemistry, and School of Liberal Arts. These fellowships are worth from $500 to $720 per year. Industrial Scholarships There are available each year, as tliey become vacant, a number of industrial scholarships, in which students receive compensation for attending to certain pre- scribed duties, such as waiting on the tables in the dining hall, janitor service in ihe dormitory, and postmaster. Students may frequently earn enough in this way to cover board and lodging.

Infantry, Professor of Mili- M tary Science and Tactics, was aSe a horn at Fort Buford, North Da- kota, on April 15, 1884. Upon com- pletion of his grammar and high- school work. Captain Matile enrolled at the Peekskill (N. Y.) Military Academy, where he was graduated in 1908. At the very beginning of the hostilities between this country and Germany he served in the First Divi- sion of the first expeditionary forces in France. On January 5. 1917, he was commissioned as Major. During Captain Matile ' s service in France, from July i, 1917, until July I. 1918, he commanded a rifle company, Head- cjuarters Machine Gun Company (as Regimental Adjutant), and saw active service in the Toul Sector, Verdtm Sector, and with his regiment on the Western front. ERGEANT W. H. McMANUS was born on October 12, 1879, at Elkridge, Maryland. When Uncle Sam called for volun- teers at the outbreak of the Spanish- American War, Sergeant McManus responded. The term of his enlist- ment expired on his arrival in the United States. But the army life seemed to appeal too strongly to Ser- geant McManus for him to resist it, so in 1902 he joined the United States Engineer Corps and served in that branch until commissioned on July 12, 1917, as a Second Lieutenant in the Infantry. During the war he served as a Lieutenant, a Captain and a Ma- jor of Infantry. For six months Ser- geant McManus also served as Bri- gade Adjutant of a depot brigade. On March 14, 1919, he was detailed as assistant to the Professor of Military Science and Tactics at Maryland State College. He reported for duty on March 17, 1919. Ttvo hundred ' 2II|e BRescrlic (3i{kn-s ' Qlrahttn Olnrps Jlnit, ' D U DDff I D,D DDD DDD DDQ HE Reserve Officers ' Training Corps Unit at Mary- land State College was established 19 17. In the past, due probably to adverse conditions, the instruction of this unit was confined largely to infantry drill. During the war the Student Officers ' Training Corps supplanted the R. O. T. C. at this College, and was an emergency measure intended for the training of men for officers should the need arise. This train- mg was intensive, but, due to lack of time, was limited in scope, and the instruc- tion could not be as thorough as desired. At the beginning of the year 1919-1920 the President and Faculty co-operated with the Military Department in allowing better hours for purposes of instruc- tion. It was recognized that if military training was to mean more than " drill, " the Military Department should be placed on the same basis as other depart- ments. This was done without dissent. The College authorities plainly desired lending their support by satisfactorily fixing the status of the Military Depart- ment. Collegiate credits, three-term credits for basic and four-term credits for advanced course men, were allowed, and in other respects the military work was given largely the standing desired by the War Department. The Professor of Military Science and Tactics was made a member of all committees, and through the hearty co-operation of both President and Faculty was enabled to lay the ground work for the building up of an efficient R. O. T. C. unit. A course was established based upon Special Regulations 44, War Depart- ment, and, though handicapped for the lack of instructors, was fairly successful through the use of student instructors. A schedule of hours has been provided which will allow the Professor of Military Science to personally supervise instruc- tion of classes. . military laboratory equipped with automatic rifles, trench mortar, 37 mm. gun, etc., was established in the Agricultural Building, and two B H relief maps were purchased by the College. Other military property in instructional purposes, ;n compliance with the request of the Military Department, has been ]:)laced in the immediate charge of a reliable property man, whose sole duty is to care for and proi)erly guard same. For many years the discipline of Maryland State College was handled by a Commandant. Since the re-establishment of the R. O. T. C. a system of Student Government was inaugurated. It was to be expected until this new system was Ttiio hundred and one U3@ D 3 ®l]e Jveserfae (Officers ' (Lrahttng luit, Harulaub tatc College in working order and each individual student realized the responsible part he had to play in order to make good this honor system an unfavorable reaction might result. Although the Professor of Military Science had no difficulty in maintaining good discipline during the time set aside for military instruction, and the co- operation of the student officers and non-commissioned officers was excellent, at other times apathy and indifference were in evidence. What was the matter? The Professor of Military Science and the Executive Committee of the Student Government met informally and discussed the matter. Did the College desire a good military unit? Yes. Could the " honor system " be fostered by good military morale? Yes. Could there be a real honor system without the basic character elements — loyalty, truth, etc. — that military morale is built upon? No. As a result of this little conference there was seen the absolute necessity for co-opera- tion between the Student Government and the lilitary Department, one backing the other, and both for the College. Already there has been a big change for the better. Students are beginning to realize that bringing up the tone of the military work, good attendance, good discipline, real " snappy ' ' drill, etc., must help the College, and will help the College. It is not sufficient that proficiency be attained in the classroom or that the individual manage to get through. Esprit de corps must be built up. The spirit of emulation between companies, friendly rivalry, and finally, a battalion proficient in drills, built upon the honor system, backed by every single man here, is the only way. The Reserve Officers " Training Corps is now firmly established throughout this country. On March 1-2, 1920, a conference was called in Washington, D. C., by the R. O. T. C. branch of the War Plans Division of the General Staff, for the j)urpose of considering and discussing R. O. T. C. matters. This conference was attended by representatives from the R. O. T. C Branch from four department headquarters, several professors of military science, and twenty or more heads from various institutions throughout the country. As a result of this conference it was learned that the R. O. T. C. was not only popular, but was considered of vital importance to the civilians throughout our country. The Professor of Military Science has the backing of the President and Faculty, but needs also the moral support of each loyal student at this College to make this unit the best in this part of the country, and to make Maryland State a distinguished College.

It now stands as one of the repre- sentative colleges of the South Atlantic section. No college in the South has shown greater growth and pttained more prominence in such a brief vime. Many favorable factors almoL t guarantee a continuation of this progress. The College is on excellent terms of relationship with every other college. It is a member ' of the South Atlantic Intercollegiate Athletic Association, composed of all the big colleges and universities in the South Atlantic section, and its director of athletics is president of the organization. Athletic victories have been won over Princeton, Cornell, Lehigh. Penn State, Dickinson, Naval Academy, West Vir- o-inia University, Virginia Military Institute, University of Georgia, New York University, Virginia Polytechnic Institute, Washington and Lee, Georgetown, and numerous other colleges. Johns Hopkins, in football, has not crossed State ' s goal line since 191 1, a period of eight years. St. John ' s, which used to be State ' s main rival, has been defeated regularly for the last seven years.

Y the blowing of the final whistle of the Thanksgiving- Day game we closed what is conceded by all to be one of the most successful football seasons in the history of Maryland State athletics. Although the outcome of our first few games did not prove this fact, we must con- sider the caliber of the teams played in comparison with our opponents of former years. Instead of confining our activities to the smaller colleges throughout Mary- land, we broadened our field of football endeavor and took a decisive step toward putting ourselv es on the same level with the larger institutions of the country. Our season was ushered in with the Swarthmore contest, which was lost by the score of lo to 6. We started the game with a rush by scoring in the first quarter, Riggs sprinting 90 yards for a touchdown after recovering a Swarthmore fumble. Our line was practically impregnable, forcing Swarthmore to resort to end runs, by which route they finally succeeded in forcing the ball across our line. A placement kick in the third quarter completed the scoring for tlie day and inci- dentally gave Swarthmore the winning margin. In our second contest of the season we turned the tables and came out on the long end of a 13-to-o count against the University of Virginia. The game was featured by Captain Knode ' s brilliant playing. His sprint of 43 yards from a recovered fumble to a touchdown and two difScult field goals decided the outcome of the contest. Both teams played brilliant football throughout the entire game, the playing of Mackert at tackle being an outstanding feature of the Maryland defense. Our third opponent of the season was the highly-touted West Virginia eleven, rated as one of the strongest teams in the country. The game was played under adverse conditions, the field being covered with several inches of mud and water. West Virginia, however, was prepared for the weather, and the team used mud cleats, which aided them in romping through to a 27-to-o victory. Hill of West Virginia proved to be the star for the Mountaineers, while Mackert and Nisbet played the most consistent game for State. Tnyo hundred and (ii t ' nf j-5c ' Ven uajo 3 efabfa of tl|e Reason On October 25th we met the Virginia Polytechnic Institute, our much-hon- ored rival. The game was hard fought throughout all four quarters, the final issue being in doubt until the latter part of the fourth quarter, when V. P. I., through a consistent and successful aerial attack, succeeded in pushing over a touchdown. Although there were no individual stars, the game was featured by the hard, clean football displayed by both elevens. On November ist we invaded the North, having Yale for our opponent. Maryland opened the game with a rush, gaining over 40 yards on the first two plays, both end runs by Gilbert. However, the Yale line braced, and the beginning of the second quarter found State on the defensive. The " Big Blue ' s ' ' backfield, ied by Kempton, played brilliantly at all times, succeeding in scoring 31 points against a line said to be the best they had faced during the year. Although at first glance the game seems to be a decisive victory for Yale, it was harder fought than the score indicates, and Maryland feels that it made a creditable showing in its first appearance against one of the " Big Three. " Mackert ' s vicious tackling and Riggs work at end were worthy of comment. iNovember 8th found State at Annapolis, where we played one of our oldesi rivals in the race for the State Championship. From the time of the kick-off until the final whistle blew. State had things all her own way. St. John ' s backs found our line invincible and had to resort to the forward pass route, by which they made several gains. These, however, were well distributed throughout the game, and as a result our opponents were unable to get within scoring distance. Mack- ert ' s defensive playing in the line and the work of Riggs and Eppley in breaking up kicks and recovering fumbles, coupled with the consistent ground gaining of Knode and Bosley, proved to be the downfall of St. John ' s, the final score being 27 to O. The all-around playing of Semler, St. John ' s brilliant quarterback, is worthy of special mention. Our victory over St. John ' s seemed to mark the turning of the tide, as is shown by the scores of our remaining games. Catholic University was met and defeated in a hard-fought battle by the score of 13 to o. The game proved to be one of the hardest liattles of the season. Although Catholic University was unable 10 score, the outcome of the game was uncertain until the fourth quarter, when State gradually forged to the front. Mackert, State ' s aggressive tackle, proved to be a thorn in the side of Catholic University, his offensive and defensive work both being of a high order. The victory was due in a large measure to the general- " hip of Captain Knode, his selection of plays completely baffling our opponents. Our next victim was Western Maryland. This game proved to be interesting. Our team had little difficulty in making consistent gains through their line. After the Varsity had run up a score of 20 to o a second eleven was put in, and suc- ceeded in giving the " Preachers " a great battle for the remainder of the game. Our Thanksgiving Day game with Hopkins was looked forward to by all for several reasons, the chief one being that it was the deciding factor in the State Championship Series. Our team went into the game not only to win, but also determined to keep Hopkins from crossing our goal line, a feat which she has not been able to accomplish for eight years. This determination did not belong Tv o hundred and Iwcniy-eight 36 3 E iefa of tijc Reason to the team alone, but was shared by the entire College. State rushed Hopkins oil their feet in the first few minutes of play. Mackert was shifted from tackle to fullback for this game, and went through Hopkins ' line with such apparent ease that it appeared to be nothing more than paper. Our first score was made when Knode received a difficult pass from Mackert and sprinted through a broken field for a touchdown. In the second half State came back with even greater vigor than before and fairly pushed Hopkins down the field. Gilbert made several brdliant end runs, and it was largely through his efforts that the ball was put m a position from which Mackert plunged over for the final score. We emerged from this game not only with a victory over Hopkins, but also with the State Championship safely tucked away for the fourth consecutive year. There are perhaps a few special re;isons why we won the championship this year, but the general principles are the same which have always made us wm. First, by following out certain traditions which have been handed down to us year by year ; the necessity of advancing each year beyond the point attamed the year before, the mastering of the play of our opponents and planning our game to meet it Second, by the hard, conscientious work such as only a State team knows how to do. Third, by going on the field with that high courage and determmation which has always been characteristic of the State eleven, something like the spirit of the ancient Greeks who went into battle with the decision to return with their shields or on them. We know it is not possible for our team to come out of the fray always victorious, and although sometimes we emerge with the smaller score it is always with that spirit which knows no defeat. ,--- ■:- 4 GILBERT Two hundred and lacnl !-nine iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiirriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitiiiiiiiiiiiriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiitiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiiniiMiiiiiiiiiMniiiiiiiiriiiiiiiiiiiMiiiiiiiiiiiiiitiiihiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiitiiiniiiitiii 5Rmn• --l9U M.

He rendered services as essential to success as that of any of the players. Assistant Manager The untiring eflforts of Chauncey Brown, assistant manager, were also highly commendable. Caj tain Too much credit cannot be given " Bobby " Knode for his untiring ef- forts to lead his men to victory in every battle. He is a gr eat field gen- eral and is so recognized throughout the State. One of his most excellent qualities is that of punting, in which it is conceded by all that he has few equals. " Bobby ' s " graduation this year will be keenly felt by the team, and his place will be a hard one to fill. Cuplaiit-clcct We were all glad to see " Ike " Mc- Donald return to Maryland State after his discharge from the army, and feel that no better man could have been chosen to assume the leadership of our squad next year. " Ike " is a good clean, consistent player, and ca- pable of leading our team to greater achievements than ever before. ymo InmJrcJ and tliirlv-lhrcc nf U J[:JJ Ln L R El 3 Mackert, our giant tackle, is the man whose slashing plays will never be forgotten. Even when he was doing the heaviest damage to our op- ponents they could not but admire his wonderful work. Riggs, our star end, was born with, a football instinct and a natural apti- tude for following the ball. We do not wonder at the timidity of his oppo- nents, for when he charges, his arms and legs move up and ilown like the pistons of an engine. Two hundred and ihirtv-four D 3 Nisbet is another star of the first magnitude, whose opponents stand about as much chance of shoving him back as they would were they bucking up against a steam roller. " Nibby " ' stands out prominently as one of the greatest goal kickers that Old Mary- land has ever produced. Moore, last but not least of the four, has largely helped to put State ' s 1919 team on the map. He has a foot- ball face that we like, and was a most potent ' factor at all times on State ' s team. .i « - «k,- 7 ' njo hundred and thirly-five AT HOMEWOOD FIELD □ uaS °13 3 a HDPKmS □ STATE 14 hof EVvOOD pELD B LTI|V10RE NOVEMBER 2 i-lopK lhJs • ' OKies V ' fl.

The size of our Freshman Class this year was such that a football team could easily be organized, and as it was felt that such a team would he an important step toward the development of a much stronger Varsity, arrangements were immediately made to bring this team into existence. The Freshman enters College with little or no football experience, but with a year ' s play on the Freshman team he is developed to such a degree that when he becomes an iip])er classman he is experienced enough to take his place on the Varsity. This keeps the ' arsity from being weak- ened by new and inexperienced men filling the vacancies of those who leave from year to year. A schedule of seven games was arranged, which included several .=ihort trips, the most notable of which was the one to Staunton Military Academy. It was necessary to get a coach, and in this respect the Freshmen were very for- tunate, for they secured the services of Lyman Oberlin, one of the best football players State has ever produced, and a man well qualified for such a position. Too much praise cannot be given him for his untiring efforts in rounding the team into shape. It was a promising bunch of " timber " which ])ut in its appearance when the Call was made for candidates for a Freshman team, and it was soon learned that plenty of good football material was in it. Although the team did not romp away 10 victory in every game, we are all well pleased, as several valuable men have been developed, and will no doubt bid fair for Varsity berths next fall. Notable among these are Branner, Buckheister, Groves, McCeney and Latta. A few days after the first call the Freshmen decided to elect a captain. Among the men in their midst was one whose reputation as a runner and football player had preceded him, and it was only a matter of several days before the men were convinced that Jim Latta, who had played for a year at West Virginia Uni- versity, was the one to lead them on the gridiron. He was elected to the position rMid held it down very satisfactorily. FRESH M. N RECORD FOR lyiy M.S. C.

In addition, this year ' s team is well fortified, having available an abundance of promising new material for every department. The goal is already in sight. The opening game last year was a record breaker, defeating Georgetown for the first time in the history of our College. This defeat gave the team a fighting spirit, and, spurred on by college enthusiasm, it went over the top with the State Championship under its belt and generally conceded the one best bet for the South Atlantic title, having won sixteen out of eighteen games, a triumph of which any institution might well be proud. Georgetown was again forced to take the short end of a count the first game of this year. This is something that a supporter of our team may feel justly proud of. The game was marred with errors, for the bad weather preceding the day of the game caused the diamond to be slow and slippery. We were extremely fortunate. The second game was with Gallaudet, and was simply a runover for our leam. Gallaudet offered little or no opposition, and the heavy batting that State is famed for came into prominence at this time. The University of Virginia was encountered next, and even though they put up a strong fight, we managed to send enough runs across the platter to leave the University with another victory to our credit. Ttvo hundred and forly-seven D 3 Kaseball Richmond College proved to be another victim to the batting strength of the crew from College Park, and were forced to leave the grounds defeated. The next game of the Southern trip was with North Carolina State College, and was one of the best and hardcstfought games ever played at Raleigh. The North Carolina team was defeated, and the Maryland boys left Raleigh with five wins to their credit against no defeats. The University of North Carolina was fortunate enough to tie the game played the next day. This was one of the good games of the year, and though we did not win, we could comfort ourselves vt-ith the fact that we did not lose. Maryland State won from the University of Georgia at Athens on the 6th of April. This was a game of batting and breaks for both teams. The pitching was rather weak, but both teams proved to be present with their bats. The next day the University of Georgia turned the trick on us and showed us that we were not fhe only ones who could win a ball game. This was a sad game for our pitcher. We took our spite out on the University of South Carolina the next game by giving them the short end of a decisive score. Then the team returned to us and the very day entertained Penn. State. The Northerners proved to have the best of the argument and won. This game was marred with errors, both teams making about the same number. The team has won seven games and lost two. This is no bad average and should make us feel proud of our representatives on the diamond. The Southern trip was successful, and it was due to the playing of all the men that made it so. The team is to be congratulated. 1920 Scores Opp. State Georgetown 2 3 Gallaudet 3 20 University of Virginia I 3 Richmond College 2 5 North Carolina State I 2 University of N.

We are all glad to see the ball traveling in his direction, as there are none that escape this natural-born player. Mainstay EENE, our greatest asset last year, made a record of which any college pitcher could well feel proud. With " Vic " in the box, the game is just about won, and with the exception of the catcher the rest of the players have little to worry them.

Many of our promi- nent stars have resumed their activities in the athletic field. Track is a sport that has flourish.ed in the pre-war days at our institution, and Coach Byrd has high expectations of developing a capable and efficient team that will bring many honors home to State. A few of the stars that will represent the team this year were among those that made such a creditable showing in the South Atlantic meet at Homewood last spring. These men, although handicapped by a late start, nobly overcame the obstacles, and all who were pres- ent declared that they did splendid work. Coach Byrd is taking an active interest in the welfare of the track team, and IS contemplating giving them an early start in preparation for the many important meets to be held this year. Among the veterans of last year ' s squad are Bosley, Kirby, Raedy, Ruppert and Barall, who are all dash men ; Twilley and Gilbert, who are two of last year ' s distance men, and from indications will have a most successful season. Added to this nucleus are a number of talented Freshmen. Among the most prominent men of the new members of the squad are Latta, a hurdler who has participated ;n a number of indoor meets, and Compiler, who has an excellent record in high school. We regret the loss of Captain Brown of last year ' s squad, who did such wonderful work in the field events. Brown ' s loss is keenly felt, but there are a number of men available to take his place. A very attractive schedule has been arranged, and among the teams we are to oppose are Swarthmore, Gettysburg, and Delaware College, each in a dual meet. During the latter part of May the squad will journey to Philadelphia to compete with the foremost colleges and universities in the Penn. relays. Soon after this meet the squad will leave for Blacksburg, Va., to participate in the S. A. Cham- jiionship meet. With such a wealth of material there should be bright prospects in store for the squad. There is a splendid chance of winning the South Atlantic Champion- ship for old State.

Due to the war conditions we did not have a team in the spring of 1918, but last year a few of the old lacrosse men who had returned to us, after being discharged from Uncle Sam ' s army, decided tt) organize the team again. It was not an easy task wliich they had to face, but they went at it with the characteristic Maryland spirit and succeeded in rounding a team into shape. Most of the men had never played th e game before, but they received the training that will make them valuable assets to this year ' s team. Practice this year started with a vengeance early in Alarch, and, despite the bad weather and other adverse conditions, about forty men appeared as candidates. Few are veterans, but such men as " Dutch " ' Axt, a star at the game ; " Pete " Elliott, whose ability as a player gave him the captaincy; Edel and a few new- comers, such as Kubitz, formerly goal keeper for Baltimore City College, make a good skeleton around which to build a strong, successful team. We cannot overlook the fact that the team is being coached by " Reggie " Truitt, one of State ' s old stars and a past master at the game. The team has a hard schedule ahead of it, but with the ability the men have shown so far, coupled with the efforts of their coach, we feel sure that the team will make a creditable showing, and wish Captain " Pete " Elliott and Manager " Hap " Carroll all the luck in the world. T ' Q o hundred and sixt -cight 3 □ 3 D HIS good-looking fellow is " PETE " ELLIOTT, captain of our lacrosse team. " Pete " is not the kind of a player who stands out as a star in every game, but he is one of those stead} ' , consistent play- ers without which no team is a suc- cess. We know that " Pete " will do everything in his power to have this year ' s team t;() down in history as a winner. ERE is the man who we con- sider the best of them all. " DUTCH " is an old hand at the game, and it is his spirit that perme- ates the team and keeps them fight- ing throughout the game. " Dutch " is in every play, and with such a man on the team it is going to be a hard aggregation to beat. Ttvo hundred and sixtv-nine 3E D 3 n KRE is the Ijiggest man on the team, but his size is not a hin- drance ; on the contrary, he is a hard man to play against, and he will be a world of strength to the team this year. We only wish we had a few more like EDEL to sport the colors of Maryland State ' s la- crosse team. ( )( ) much cannot be said for " HAP " CARROLL for his un- tiring eitorts in putting the la- crosse team on its feet this year. " Ha]) " does not say much, Init he does a lot of work. The schedule this year will prove this. A man- ager ' s job is not an easy one, but the boys did the right thing when they elected " Hap " Carroll to fill it.

In conseciuence of the College hav- ing had no representatives on the courts for a year, he arranged a light schedule. He also superintended work on the courts, which were badly in need of attention. If " John- nie " accomplishes as much for the team this year as he did last, he will certainly have performed his man- agerial duties. DRAWBAUGH X Captain .V tennis a steady, consistent, persevering player usually de- feats an impulsive, reckless, in- consistent player. " BOB " proved himself to be of the former type in his matches last year. As a result of this he was elected captain of this year ' s team, and, given proper back- ing by all the members of the team, he will, without a doubt, make an ex- cellent leader for this year ' s matches.

Slanker and Haig, with Carroll and White as alternates, had an extremely successful season. Out of five matches State won four, the only match that was lost being that played with Georgetown. Only three of these six men returned to College this year. Fortimately, an abundance of new material was available, and an efficient team will prob- ably represent the College this spring. The most promising racqueters from past appearances seem to be Trail, Haig, Slanker, Yoshikawa, White, Latta, Coleman, Posey and Kisluik. The last four mentioned are Fresh- men, and it is likely that they will develop into exceptional players. A probable line-up for this season would be: I. Haig (Capt.), 2. Slanker, 3. Latta, 4. Trail or Yoshikawa. Of course, the appearance of a " dark horse " or an unexpected improvement in the playing of some of those who have appeared on the courts before would u])set the dope. Since the schedule is just about as difficult a one as can be arranged, it is certain that every care will be exercised to give the best men the preference. TENNIS TEAM Two hundred and si;vi:nl )-six a 3 S [itylLLi a 3 tEennts 1 he suggestion has lieen made that the team consist of six. or even as many as eig ' ht, men this year, and it is possible that State will have a larger team than ever before. There is also a possibility that a coach will be procured. Whether these progressive steps are taken this year or not. it is certain that the College will have a tennis schedule such as has never before been undertaken. We can only surmise wliat the season will bring forth in the way of victories and defeats. It is safe to say, however, that a majority of wins this year would rank M. S. C high in the tennis circles of this section and elsewhere. SCHEDULE Ajjril 17. . ..George Washington University at Washington, D. C. April 28 Racket Club at Washington, D. C.

Thompson, Brookland, D. C. ; Liberal Arts ; 1923. There are several factors that influenced the increase. A School of Liberal Arts was instituted last year and has proved very popular. The School of IDomes- ric Science, instituted the previous year, has also added quite a number to the total enrollment. The housing facilities were increased by the addition of Carroll liall. The first dormitory, Cerneaux Hall, was opened in 1918; another, Carroll Hall, in 1919. Both of these dormitories are well filled, so what we are hoping for now is a large dcirniitory that will take care of at least two hundred girls. Ttvo Inmilrcd and cighl )-onc WITH THE CO-EDS. uaj 3 dn- imratimt Gerneaux Hall was reserved this year exclusively for girls taking Home Economics. This hall is used as a practice-house, where the girls put into practice the theory they learn in classroom. Several of the Home Economics faculty also :eside here. The house is beautifully located on a hill overlooking Berwyn heights in front and the College group to the right. Carroll Hall is located in the Park. It is just a " nice " walk from this house to the College, hut the College ' bus. which jiasses the house, is available to all those who care to ride. Here the girls live who are not taking Home Economics. However, all the girls do not live in these two dormitories. Several live in the Park and vicinity. Others commute from Washington. Since the first of the year all the girls in the College and the faculty of the School of Home Economics have been serving tea Sunday afternoons at ( ierncaux Hall to the faculty and students. A certain number are always invited, and the girls act as hostesses. These teas have proved exceedingly enjoyable. Now that spring is here we naturally turn to outdoor sports. Tennis seems TO be the most popular sport, and a tennis court is to be made at Gerneaux Hall. All during the year Miss McNaughton has been conducting a class in recrea- tion. This class now holds its meetings outdoors. .Some evenings, games are played, other evenings long hikes are taken. In this way we learn to appreciate the beautiful country that surrounds the college. We hope that the enrollment of girls will be twice as great as last fall, and we extend a cordial invitation to the girls of Maryland to come and keep up the good work of co-education at Maryland State. E. G. H. Tivo hundred and eighl -thrce D 3 § ' t«i»nit clf-(l5n(unniuuntt r ' rUDl :NT GOVERNMENT at Maryland State is a system of self- government by which the students regulate their own affairs. The linal administration of discipline rests, by law, with the President of the College, but he intrusts to the students the power to decide their mode of conduct. Outside the classroom the authorities place no re- strictions upon members of ihe student body, and so long as any person conforms to the laws of society, as long as he is gentlemanly, he may do as he pleases. The working organ under student government is the General Students ' Assembly, which convenes bi-weekly to enact regulative measures and thrash out student affairs. The Executive Committee of the Assembly, consisting of two members of each class, discuss and refer to the College President for considera- tion all matters that come from the Assembly or the individual. An Advisory Board from the faculty sits with the Executive Committee at special meetings to give impartial counsel, so that the decisions of the students may be to the best interests of all concerned. This system was inaugurated by the officials because the old one, known as the proctor system, was deemed incompatible with the best interests of a progres- sive institution, and therefore a hindrance in the development of the College to the degree outlined in the plans. In the proctor system of government, where regulations of the faculty are administered by a few students upon the others, tl:ere 1? not the same free atmosphere for expression ; a student does not have the power to develop his governing faculties that he should have. The working principle of our government is the honor system, which begins with the govenunent of the self. The individual is trusted to cf)nduct himself properly without the surveillance of authorities or other students. The knowledge ■ if this freedom removes largely the incentive to do unsocial deeds that are so common under authority not willingly accepted by those governed. Moreover, it places a responsibility on each man for his personal actions and for the general welfare of the school, teaching him that he owes a duty to fellow-members of his society and to the whole. It is this sense of social and individual responsibility, above all other things, that should be fostered in educational institutions of America. Tnfo hundred and cighty-fve □ 3 as 3 ' Qli]t (imtcral tubcntis ' ssmublu TUDENT SELF-GO ' ERN.MENT is still in its infancy at Alarj-land State, but rapid progress towards its efficient functioning has been made this year. The old constitution proved rather inadequate and did not ofifer the range of adaptability desired. This necessitated the drawing up and adoption of a new constitution more specifically adapted to our conditions. Alaryland State College is in a stage of evolution, coming directly between a college and a university, and the problems confronting student self-government are radically different from those at other institutions. The heterogeneity of the student l:io dy this year is far more pronounced than ever before, there being a large percentage of Federal Board men and ex-service stu- dents who have tended to cling to the traditions of the paternalistic system of government of old M. A. C. One class period ])er week of College time has been turned over to the As- sembly for its meetings. When the amount of business on hand did not justify a meeting, a recreative and instructional program of entertainment was planned and consuiumated by Professor Richardson. In this way we have had the pleasure of listening to several noted lecturers and entertainers, thus giving the activities of the Assembly a recreative as well as a work-a-day aspect. The main i roblenis which were discusse l in our business meetings and either solved or now in a process of solution were those relating to student conduct, dor- mitory regulations, athletics, military drill, class distinctions and relationships, interclass competitions, student-faculty relationships, the improvement of student life, the ho: or system for examinations, and excusal from term examinations for r. ' arhed pioliciency in daily work and monthly tests. Our creed of student conduct has not been reduced to words. It demands com])Iiance with but one law ' that each man be a gentleman and each girl a lady. The interpretation of this law is left to the discretion of the Executive Connuittee, which exercises judicial power, subject to the approval of the President of the College. But few instances have occurred this year where an interpretation was necessary, and in each case the findings have met with the approval of the Presi- dent. Dormitory regulations have been, reduced to a minimum, and as a result petty depredations and vandalisms have become the exception rather than the rule. The old Athletic Association, which died during the war, has been exhumed and injected with new life, and is now actively functioning. A drive is under way for the arousing of pride and interest in the battalion, with the end in view of regain- ing a place on the " Big Ten. " Interclass relationships and activities have occupied an undue amount of time in our business meetings this year. A permanent li.st of Freshman-Sophomore contests and interclass contests has been drawn up and adopted, and a part of the ]irogram will be inaugurated this spring. Class privileges and distinctions have Tiifo hundred and eighty-six □ 30 J ®I]e (iSfneral S ' tuticuts ' i ssrniliIo been sharply drawn, thus furnishing an incentive to the iiKhvidiial members of each class to exert themselves to gain the jjrivileges of the ensuing class. The spirit of the new M. S. C. is already beginning to be felt, and time is the only element necessary for its full development and progress. The E.xecutive Committee, which functions as an advisory, executive and judicial board of the Assembly, has been exceptionally able and active in antici- pating and proposing solutions for student-life problems as these problems pre- sented themselves. Full judicial power was not granted this committee until near the end of the second term, when it had fully merited and won the approval of the Student Assembly. With the grantnig of this power a number of faults in .-tudent conduct have been corrected. Too much credit and praise cannot be given this committee for the part it has played in hel])ing to make our system of govern- ' nent successful. The student body has been especially receptive and tolerant towards criticism, and has never failed to do its utmost to remove any factor which has retarded the progress of student government. Some mistakes have been made and some lemain yet to be made, but the body has never yet failed to respond to the teaching of experience. The spirit of the new government is synonymous with the spirit of democracy which has permeated our country since the World War — equality and justice, re- gardless of class, clan or tradition. The Assembly has been heartily supported in this by our President and faculty. Their advice and assistance has been invalu- able to us, and with their experience as a basis much has been done towards stand- ardizing regulations for the coming classes. Much has been done towards an adequate self-government this year, but much remains yet to do. It has been definitely proved that our government is a success at present, a solid foundation having been ]3re])ared this year upon which the complete structure may be built l)y the coming classes.

Branner First Year Two-year Ag. W. M. Hillegeist Faculty Advisor I HE World War is over, but not its effects, " is a common expression heard on every side. There is no nation, perhaps, which suffered so much during x the recent conflict as Serbia. It was in Serbia that the Archduke Ferdi- nand was killed by a hired assassin ; it was upon Serbia that Austria made her list of unreasonable demands, which are well known to all of us ; and it was Serbia who replied, " We will agree to all but the last ; that we will resist, and will perish, if necessary. " Serbia did resist, and today we find her almost in a state of collapse. Espe- 1 ially is she lacking in educational facilities. Dr. Rosalie S. Morton, M.D., for- merly of Columbia University, but during the war engaged in relief work in Serbia, realizing this peculiar situation, has brought to this country a number of deserving young men, most of whom have shown exceptional ability in that coun- try. Dr. Morton is placing these students in the leading institutions throughout the coimtry to obtain an education, especially a knowledge of agricultural pur- suits. While in these respective institutions the student bodies are to asstmie guard- ianship over the Serbian students as regards their physical, mental, moral and financial conditions. At Maryland State the Committee-in-Charge consists of rep- resentatives from all the classes and a faculty advisor, whose principal duty is to manage the finances of the Serbian Fund according to the will of this committee. The Serbian student who is now at Maryland State is one whom the students, faculty and alumni can be justly proud of. He is a man bearing the traits of a gentleman, a gentleman even though he is being supported by the funds appro- priated by the student body, who is worthy of the respect, esteem and friendship that is due anyone who conducts himself in accordance with these principles. He 7 " a o hundred and ninel)) □ as a 3 SCljf .Stubcut Serbian JJeltcf is Mr. Duslian Hitch. Mr. Hitch spent eight years in the Serhian army, two years with the rank of a private and two as an officer. Today he holds the commission oi a first Hetitenant. He saw service not only in the World War, but also in the war with Turkey in ii;i2 and in the war with Bulgaria in 1913. He saw action during the World War in more than a score of the foremost engagements. It is with this record that Mr. Hitch has come to America, and it is with this record ihat he has come to Maryland State. Mr. Hitch, however, does not boast of his meritorious achievements, nor does he claim that these qualifications demand such action on the part of the American students who are free and in a state of flourish- ing prosperity, but, on the other hand, he is modest and luiassuming, and is humiliated when told that the American students are sacrificing their luxuries in order to assist him, and is reluctant that such has to be the case. Before enlisting m the army he was just entering what corresponds to the Freshman class in oitr American colleges. At present the greatest handicap for Mr. Hitch to overcome is his lack of Icnovvledge of the English language. But to facilitate this, many of the students spend a certain time with him each day, hoping in this way to rapidly familiarize him with the common expressions and idioms of our language that are essential m our everyday life. Many of the professors also are giving Mr. Hitch special attention in English, as well as in the other studies he is pursuing. Mr. Hitch has readily responded to this instruction, until today he can speak without long hesita- rion, as was the case when he arrived heie, and can write with remarkable ease. This kind of work is extremely broadening in its nature, and the students ' association with Mr. Hitch will eventually be of inestimable value to them. The fact that Maryland State extended its work to this degree, and the fact that this move was sponsored by the students themselves, could be nothing but gratifying, and shall in the future l e a recollection pleasant and inspiring to look back upon.

It is edited and managed by the students with faculty supervision. The paper presents the happenings of the students and tlie faculty on the campus, makes mention of the important alumni activities, publishes interesting news of the Experiment Station and Extension Service, and is also a melting-pot for the wit and humor of the campus. The Revieiv accepts the responsibility of giving to the undergraduates, fac- ulty and alumni interesting news items and reflections of student sentiment in a true and impartial way. As the mouthpiece of the student body, undesirable phases of the College are adversely criticised, while the commendable features are given due mention through the columns of the paper. It is a medium of exchange between the students and the faculty. The College paper has been in existence under its present name smce March 4, 1919, when it tt)ok the place of the Maryland State JVeekly. The new edition set an unprecedented standard, and its security of success was assured by the enthusi- asm displayed in its support. The Rei ' iezc is financed solely by advertising and by subscriptions. Difficulties are experienced in keeping the paper on a sound nnancial basis, and the business management is usually the heaviest and headiest end of college newspaper game. For another year every student will support his paper by having an appropriate amount included in his Students ' Publication Fund. This self -support on his part will impress upon him that this is his paper as well as that of the other fellows ' . EtLch year with the spirit of spring a newly elected staiT greets ' the reader with their efforts. Each new year brings a bigger and better College paper. Present prospects indicate the need of a larger paper. The present edition is one well worthy to be developed into a fitting newspaper for the prosiiective merger of State and University of Maryland. mi Two hundred and nincty-lhrce (state opens auspiciously All Past Attendance Shattered PRCSIDENT DS SPEAKS OPTIMISTrCXLLV Christmas is one festival of the year that appeals to everyone I because everyone can understand it.

These annual intersociety debates date far back into the history of the literary work of this College. With the formation of the Morrill Society, now the Poe, a spirited rivalry sprang up between the two societies, as a result of which the College each year stages the Intersociety Debate. In the spring of 1916 Dr. Patterson, then President of the College, offered a silver loving cup to be debated for, this to become the permanent possession of the society winning it three times. With this as a stimulus, literary work began to take up an important place in the out-of-class interests of the students. Elimination debates are held in each of the societies to decide u])on the rei resentatives for the big debate. The cup offered by Dr. Patterson in iyi6 has become the permanent possession of the Poe Society, and in order that there might be no break in these competitions he has offered another cup to be debated for under the same conditions. To the man who, in the opinion of the judges, is the best individual debater, is awarded a gold medal. The Intersociety Debate held this year was probably more closely contested than any other. The subject of the debate was: " Resolved, That the strike is justifiable as a means of settling disputes between Capital and Lal)or. " The New .Mercer Society, represented by Messrs. T. V. Downin and C. W. Cole, upholding the affirmative, was victorious, although Mr. Otto Reinmuth of the Poe Society was awarded the gold medal as the best individual debater. As a whole, these annual Intersociety Debates are productive of much good, for, in addition to stimulating the literary interests of the College, they serve to foster the friendly rivalry existing between the two societies. REINMUTH Tli o hundred and ninctv-seven a a JB D ®l|e 3 ' " « " ' - o i ' S ' ' ' (Dratni-iral Oluntcst j© ' BP ' ' - ' vl ' ' - ■ »- - S]HE participation of Maryland State in the intercollegiate !jjd oratorical contest of Maryland colleges is a custom dating far back nito the histor} ' of the College. Along with the activity of the institution in athletics, and the maintaining of the cherished tradition fostering the Rossbourg dances, this custom antedates all others affiliated with the institution. It is one that has always attracted the public, and one that will continue to do so. The remarkable ph.ase is, that this College up until last year has never encouraged the enrollment of Liberal Arts students, due to the weakness of this department, yet it has alwa3 ' s been foremost in developing winning ma- terial and in bringing home either the contested gold medal or honorable mention. On five occasions State has won the first decision, and on four, the second. This is a record to be proud of. Furthermore, the contest has been one not among mere preparatory schools, but one of standard institutions, such as St. John ' s, Western Maryland, and Washington College, which, along with Maryland .State, comprise the Oratorical Associa- tion of Maryland Colleges. Last year. State was represented hv C. W. Cole, who, ac- cording to all who heard the presentations, easily won, espe- cially considering it was an oratorical contest. But the judges did not see fit to pick Cole as the winner, but gave him a medal for second honors. This year it is hoped that a decision more compatible with the opinion of the audi- ence will be rendered, so at least one of the best orators will be given his just reward. The contest last year was held at Western Maryland College at West- minster. This year it will be held at . nnapolis at St. John ' s College. The preliminaries for this year ' s contest will be held in a few weeks. It is hoped that many candidates will make their appearance, because this not only stimulates the competition, but at the same time greatly develops a man and pre- pares him for the future, even though he may not be selected as the one to take part in the finals. Every man should learn to talk intelligently and readily " from his feet. " There is no better opportunity than this. Two hundred and iiinclj)-cig i( CLVBS 3 D 3 )itr cvOtrc tn N April, 1917. when our country saw fit to declare war upon the then world-menacing Hun and assist in stopping their ravages upon civil- ization, Maryland State responded cheerfully, as she always has and always will, to her patriotic duty. A good many State men joined the army immediately ; some went into the ranks, others went to the First Officer.; ' Training Camp, and some of the Seniors of that year received commis- sions directly because of the military status of our College. The first demand of our allies was for food and munitions, and this caused a great many men to go to work and help increase production on the farm and in munition factories. It was soon learned that the thing wt needed to win the war was men, and so every day during the war more Maryland State men were in the service of their country. Every training camp had its quota of our representatives, as did the camps of the various branches of the army, navy and marines. The military training at College gave State ' s men an edge on the majority of the civilians who entered the army, and this, with the spirit of their Alma Mater instilled in them, made it easy for all to succeed. There was a distinct finish to the " Maryland State College soldier. ' ' Some names will stand out pre-eminently in the history of Maryland State College in the World War. Before America had hardly realized that she was actually fighting, word came back from overseas that the first American attack against the (k-rmans was led by Captain B. D. Spalding of the Class of ' 09. It •s with great sorrow that we recall that " Dutch " P. E. Wiegand, ' 18, was the first man of our school to make the supreme sacrifice. " Dutch " was lost on the ill-fated Tuscania, which was torpedoed by a stealthy " sub. " Lieutenant-Colonel L. McD. Sylvester probably obtained greater success than any other State man in the war. Sylvester was a regular army lieutenant at the outbreak of the war, and advanced in the regular order of promotion. Because of his conduct on the field of battle he was promoted to Lieutenant-Colonel, sur- Three hundrnj and one □ ua a passing many of his superior officers. The crowning point of his success was when he received the coveted Distinguished Service Cross. The award had the pecuhar distinction of being made in Berlin just after the armistice, where Syl- vester was on a military mission. When " they " gather around and talk of tlie war you can always be proud of what Maryland State did " to make America safe for democracy. " " Swede " Eppley — Were those judges (U. S. Supreme Court) brothers, professor? I heard them calling each other " brother. " Our friend " Judge " Schulz — No, Geary, but they are brothers- in-law.

SERVICE MEN Three hunJreJ and tJvo 3 alls tixx (iHercer Jlitcraru ortcty T sometimes seems as if Providence were against the Society this year. Although we have many of the old members back taking a prominent and active part in the affairs of the organization, we have " slumped " somewhat, but it has not been wholly our fault. Whenever there is a meeting of any student organization it nearly always falls on Wednesday evening, so that the Society is handicapped by either having some members absent or by having the meeting postponed. But, regardless of the handicaps and setbacks of the past, the future is bright, and we have many both old and new members whom we are proud are New Mercer men. We have not officially acted, but it has been infor- mally talked of among many of the members, that after the intersociety debate we will change our policies of the past somewhat and organize a court to hold mock trials ; also, we may divide and carry on discussions as in the United States Congress. At any rate, we will have live and interesting programs. New Mercer feels very proud that the splendid work of Messrs. Downin and Cole in the debate which has just been held enabled us to capture first place. Now, dear old Poe, though you have lost, we congratulate you upon the ability you have shown, and wish you good luck in the future. Poe tteraru Society HE Poe Literary Society during the present year maintained that high standing which was set in 191 5, when, upon reorganization, the Morrill Literary Society became the Poe Literary Society. Since 191 5 a pride and honor has been associated with membership in the Poe. This year the mem- bership was increased to forty members, and a distinctive feature of this member- ship is the co-ed element. Programs involving discussion, recitations, readings ; addresses, prepared and impromptu ; mock trials and debates were productive of much good to the par- ticipants. The good resulted from a training enabling the members to publicly express themselves authoritatively and convincingly. in the Intersociety Debate between the Poe and the New Mercer the Poe lost as to its side. However, Otto Reinmuth, one of the Poe representatives, won the individual medal for the best debater in the contest. The most-envied victory is not a decision rendered by a corps of judges, but the feeling coming from each individual in the society that he has mastered the art of speechmaking is some- thing more substantial and more far-reaching in its effects. The consciousness of this kind of victory pervades every member of the Poe Literary Society. Three hundred and four B. L. BURNSIDE Vice-President H. M. McDonald O. C. Trail Decoration OFFICERS J. H.

R. l ' ivA BAur,i[ Membership QE. RL ' thirty years ago the Rossbourg CUib was born. Until that time no college organization had supported dancing, and no dances were held on the grounds. In order to promote this delightful mode of entertainment the students organized the club that still thrives as heartily as ever. The name came from the old Rossbourg Inn. the main building of the Maryland Agri- cultural Experimental Station, which in colonial days was famous as a place of revelry and hearty entertainment. Here assembled the most gallant gentlemen of the South and North on their journeys in either direction. It was the meeting- place of the two sections. Here ( leorge Washington and other colonial dignitar- ies sto])]ied to i-artake of Maryland hospitality. Certainly our predecessors did well in naming our cotillon club " Rossbourg. " The Rossbourg Club is primarily to support dancing, but its purpose is broader than that alone. Besides the wholesome entertaiiunent afiforded, the club gives a Three hundred and six JRoBsbourg Chih ; raining thrit nu other part of the Colleg-e can give, that is, the development of ' -ocial etiquette. The functions of the organization give the student an oppor- tunity to meet the faculty as man to man and to become acquainted with the pro- fessors ' wives, two things that are usually neglected. They give the student the opportunity to meet many young ladies whose valued acquaintanceship would otherwise be lost ; furthermore, they give the student the opportunity to meet his fellows in a different way than anywhere else ; accordingly, he will learn his fel- lows ' nature from a dififerent angle. In all these cases the patron of dances ac- quires a sense of ease, a self-assurance and a polish that is essential to every person ' s education. This training may not always be in the mind of the Ross- Dourg member, but he unconsciously receives its benefit. It was with this purpose of social training in mind that the Rossbourg Club determined to uphold a high standard of dances. The club, seeing that there would be enough functions of mediocre type for entertainment alone, decided to make all the dances held this year formal, thus maintaining a high standard and a more appreciated function. Five formal dances have been given, and everyone who attended will say that these evenings could not have been spent more enjoy- ably. The Christmas dance was easily tlie finest function of the first term, while the Washington Birthday dance yielded in superiority only to the junior Prom. The season of 1919-20 has been most successful. Let our followers preserve the rid standard of the Rossbourg Club that has been so successfully lived up to during the collegiate season.

Its absence has been felt by all, especially those who had taken active part in dramatic work during their preparatory school careers. Besides these persons there are the rest of the student body and the faculty who would be only too glad to support such an organization as an essential feature to both the social and intel- lectual phases of College activities. Realizing the need of a dramatic club, a number of interested men got to- gether during the spring of 1919 and organized. Knowing that the time did not allow for any dramatic presentation before the year was up, the club decided to leave all active work until the fall of 1919, when it could start out upon a new year fully organized and ready for work. Three hunjrccl and tune 3 2IliP |3lagrvs Two weeks after the opening of College in September a meeting of the club was called. The purpose of the meeting was to decide upon a name for the organization and to lay plans for the ensuing year. After considerable delibera- tion " The Players ' ' was finally a dopted. Due to the advent of quite a few female students, the club felt much relieved as to the problem of obtaining actresses, and immediately set a date at which both male and female students who were inter- ested in dramatic work could present before the club some selection to prove his or her histrionic ability. The Players is exclusive in this respect, because no one is admitted who cannot publicly prove his ability. The plans for the year consisted of the presentation of two one-act comedies during the first part of the year, and then at the end of the year a much larger play. For the one-act comedies " The Sleeping Car, " by William Deati Howells, and " Returning the Calculus, " by Louise Latham Wilson, were played with much suc- cess at the College Auditorium, January 24. " The Sleeping Car " was again pre- sented at Laurel, February 2j . Another offer had been accepted from the Pet- worth Methodist Church, Washington, D. C, and " The Sleeping Car " will be given some time in April. During commencement week a three-act play entitled " The Arrival of Kitty " will be staged in the College Auditorium. This play is the final work of the club for the year, and its success can be judged by what the club has already done. The Players has worked under many adverse conditions. The College has no real auditorium, and the stage facilities are poor. Realizing that these conditions could not be helped, the club has accepted them in a good spirit, improvised here and there, and has, after all, made a success of the year ' s work. Everyone has enjoyed the work and is both happy and i)rou .l to know that he belongs to the most active organization " on the hill. " THE MINUTE MEN Tlirci: hundred and ten 3 G. B.

During its first year the membership of the class was small, but what it lacked in numbers it made up in enthusiasm, and those who composed that little handful of original members will never cease to look back with pleasure upon the hours which they spent in discussion of the Bible with Professor Stoddard and in social and business meetings at his home. It was in the fall of 1918 that Professor Stoddard was taken from us. His death was a blow to the class, as it was to everyone who knew him. The lessons which he had taught, however, as much by his life as by his words of counsel, had not been in vain. The class was reorganized as the " Stoddard Memorial Bible Class, " ' and at the urgent request of its members Mr. Hillcgeist accepted the lead- ership. Since that time it has steadily grown, and now has an average attendance of twenty or more. It is particularly the purpose of the class to welcome the new man who is away at school for the first time and to olifer him a church home during his stay at College.

Three hundred and fourteen □ 30 as ' {it tixbtut Oirauge HE Student Grange was organized at Maryland State College a little over five years ago. The purpose of the organization is to provide a way for students thoroughly interested in country life to train themselves for work in county organizations in the State. Like other local granges, the Student Grange is a secret organization devoted to the interests of country people. It is represented in Prince George ' s County by Pomona Grange, Maryland State Grange and the National Grange. The members are selected from the Agricultural students at the College. The meetings, which are held every two weeks throughout the college year, are of a business and social nature. Trips to various parts of the State are taken by members of the organization who participate in the programs, installations and initiations of the granges visited. During the past year visits were made to granges in Frederick County, Baltimore County, Montgomery County, and various granges which are nearby m Prince George ' s County. The Student Grange also sent a quartette to the State Grange meeting at Chestertown, in Kent County. These visits are of great help to the granges visited, and are of mestimable value to the members of the Student Grange, who are thus brought into contact with conditions as they will find them in later life. Whatever may be said about the other student organizations at the College, the Student Grange has a reputation for its regular meetings of full attendance, for its spirited activity, and for its ever readiness to co-operate in any constructive and elevating cause. Three hundred and fifteen ;Mnrf ffiluh O N the last day of the " Advanced Practical Pomology trip " in a little restau- rant in Gettyshurg, Pa., seven future stars in the horticultural firmament, together with Professor and Mrs. Auchter, waited long and patiently for the waiter to bring the meal. During this agonizing period of suspense someone suggested that the little group on that trip would be a good nucleus for a club of all horticultural students at the College, and it was resolved tliat upon the return to school this matter should be taken up. Accordingly, a short time after this trip, the horticultural students in all classes were called together and a club formed. The purposes of the club were duly stated, the name " Hort Club " was adopted, and officers were elected as fol- lows: President, W. P. Hicks; Vice-President, A. N. Pratt; Secretary, A. J. Barrett. Since that time the Hort Club has been meeting twice a month at Professor Auchter ' s house, and topics appropriate to horticulture have been discussed, usu- ally by members of the club. On one occasion Mr. F. S. Holmes of the Experi- ment Station, who was in France with the field artillery, and later taught horti- culture to American soldiers at a French university, gave the club a very inter- esting talk on " Horticulture in France. " Another time Professor Auchter told of his experiences while " bumming " through the fruit sections of the West with two of his classmates, while at Cornell. On the whole, it is felt that the club, which was really an experiment to start with, has proved very successful, and has served a useful purpose in bringing together the students and faculty of the Horticultural Department and giving them a chance to really know each other, and it is to be hoped that future students in horticulture will carry on the work of the Hort Club, which has been so suc- cessfully started this year. Three hundred and sixteen STOCK JUDGING TEAM 3[g D s D lV i tf 1 i 1 w W r il wBtS -5 m IP - 1 FRUIT JUDGING TEAM DAIRY JUDGING TEAM O itr 31«i»StitS ©cants We have been most suecessfitl this year in the student judg- ing contests in which we have participated, and it is safe to say that the name " Maryland State " couunands more respect today in the agricultural and collegiate world than ever before. In the past we had been training only a stock-judging team, but this year additional teams were trained to take part i i other contests, such as the judging of dairy products and fruit. While none of our teams won first honors, all gave a good account of themselves. Several members of the. ;e teams won the highest individual hon- ors. It is hoped that zvith the experience thus gained zvc will be able in a year or so to develop not only individual stars, but also round out a team that ivill bring home the initial reward. XElje 5 ' tuck Hluiigtng Qleaut HE Stock-Judging Team was coached by Dr. Meade, and too much credit cannot be given him for turning out a team capable of making as good a showing as it did under the circumstances. In the first place, little time was al ' owed for training. Then, again, there was no herd at the College that could be used for judging purposes. This handicap was partly overcome by visiting the various herds throughout the State, and the members feel deeply indebted to Mr. Dennis, Mr. Shoemaker, Dr. Gorsett, Mrs. Manley, Captain Emerson, Mr. Merry- man and others, who willingly lent their herds for judging demonstrations, and also helped out in many other respects. The team was composed of Gray, Snarr and Drawbaugh. The contest was held at the National Dairy Show in Chicago on October 6. ALKER, Pratt and Perry composed the Fruit-Judging Team. The contest 9 was held at Rutgers ' College, and all of the colleges of the East were invited to send teams. A silver cup is to be given to the team winning three times successively. While we did not win the contest, Maryland State had the distinc- tion of having a man who took the highest individual honors for judging. Walker won the medal offered to the student considered the best judge of fruit. Professor Auchter, the coach, can feel very proud of the showing made, es])ecially since this was the first contest of its kind that State has ever participated in. The silver cup is not going to be won for a year or so, and don ' t be surprised if it eventually rests in College Park. 2II]E 3airu |Jrn rts 3|it giitg (Etam COURSE in the judging of dairy products was not offered during the regular school session, but it so happened that a few students were attending summer school last year, and, attracted by the prospects of a trip to Chicago, Pro- fessor Gamble was able to round up a few of them and get them interested in the ludging of cheese, butter and milk. Frequent trips were made to the markets in Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia, where tub after tub of butter and cheese were sampled. The contest took place at the National Dairy Show in Chicago on October 7. The team was composed of Drawbaugh, Schaffer and Downin, with Snarr as alternate. Downin made quite a name for himself and College by standing first in the judging of both cheese and butter. This was the first time that one man ever stood first in the judging of more than one of the dairy products. In recognition of this a special medal was struck off and sent Downin by the officials of the Dairy Products Show. Three hundred and nineteen D 3 ®l|c Olcuuty mih tnU Ollubs O URING the past year the County and State CHibs at College have done won- derful work for the advancement of social, political, industrial and eco- 1 noniic life on the campus and throughout the State. Throughout the entire scholastic year these organizations have endeavored to work together ; they liave striven toward the same end. that is, to bring the patrons in a closer unity ; to impress upon the young manhood, especially the high-school graduates, the im- portance and value of obtaining a higher education, similar to the quality of that given at old Maryland State. The clubs have endeavored to place themselves at the disposal of the people at all times. They have furnished the county newspapers with news items, have furnished information to all inquiries to the best of their ability, and, finally, have supported the social side of life by presenting many interesting literary programs. There is an organization of men at College from nearly every county in the State and from two States, and it is through the untiring efforts of these men that the folks back home, both old and young, are kept interested in the affairs of the College.

Last year there were three Nationals and one Local. This year there are five Nationals and three Locals, one of which is a sorority, while the remaining seven are men ' s organizations. The sorority is the Sigma Delta. The fraternities, in order of their seniority, are: Sigma Nu, Kappa Alpha, Sigma Phi Sigma, Nu Sigma Omicron, Phi Alpha, Sigma Tau Alpha, and Alpha Zeta. The first fraternity at Maryland State was organized in 1914, during the administration of Dr. Patterson as President of the College. This was the Gamma Pi, which is now the Sigma Nu. During the same year the Local, which is now the National, Kappa Alpha, was granted its charter. In 1916 the Iota Sigma was established. This at present is the Sigma Phi Sigma. Dur- ing this year the Nu Sigma Omicron received recognition. These represent the group that existed on the campus prior to the year 1919-20. The recognition and announcement of the girls ' organization inaugurated a new condition at the College. This should tend to draw a larger attendance of the co-ed sex. The members re:pon- sible for its organization should be highly complimented.

During our travels we have " left no stone unturned; " in fact, we have entered the remotest recesses of the " minutest " parts. ' Tis now that we have reached our end — that we have surveyed the field, adapted it, aranged it, rearranged it, decreased it, enlarged it, and, finally, placed it to our ultimate satisfac- tion — that we have broken the barrier and arrived at our finishing post — Finis — which for one time, we hope, when you have covered the course, that you will say, " My, what a delightful journey! I regret that the end is upon us. " This, our friends, is what the Board of the " 1920 Reveille, " in behalf of the Junior Class or the Class of 1921, has endeavored to do. We hope we have succeeded. If not, tell us. It is for our own good. So, here, fareivell — may Tve meet again- For you, much good and health rve send. To future Boards on Reveilles — Tve can aid, Tve are here to please. If Tve can help, so let it be. For you, success TVe rvant to see. -Editor. Three huntlrcJ and scvcnly-scven pt feiSS as 3 n O WHOM are we highly indebted for the pos- sibility and success of our " 1920 Reveille? " Among others, our Advertisen. Through their interest and support this volume has been made possible. And it is only fitting, at this time, that we express to each and everyone of them our sincerest and profoundest appreciation. To exemplify this true feeling we have carried the interest, not to the begin- ning of " Ads, " but through Ads to the very last page of the Annual. This has been done by interspersing the Ad pages with pages of diary, and, also, by saving six attractive group pictures of the campus for the last six pages. We trust, by doing this, we have fulfilled our end, and that, in the future, many patrons may be the reward for your kindness and generosity. We hope the Reveilles in the future may be of service to you, and you of aid to them, as was the case this year. We thank you. — Editor.

" Our alhletic teams are just be- ginning ' their schedules, so we can only say a few words regarding the prospects. The baseball team lias already made good prog- ress, winning the first three games, and it is probable that the defeats will be few, if any. The tennis team has just started its schtdule and has listed fourteen matches. Haig and Slanker are back from last year, and with the new men out should have a team which will capture honors. The la- crosse team is working hard and Axt and Elliot should be able to have a team that will make the Navy step lively and that will win a majority of games. The track team has tive meets arranged. " Billy " Barall is on the job, and witli " Jimmy " Latta and several other stars Maryland should be st rongly rei)resented. Thf Junior I rom will be held the middle of April, and from all appearances at the present time it looks as thpugh the Juniors will make the Prom the best ever.
