To the mind not enjoying a College education. College life is a sort of enigma. It cannot conceive of the conditions in which young men are brought together, not only for the purpose of study, but for enlightenment in all things that go to make up a liberal minded man. It is the aim of this work to combine the principal events that have made up our life at College and put them in such form as to be intelligible to all. We aim to show the cloud as well as the silvry lining of College life in the hope that some one who happens to peruse these pages may be so attracted bj ' the accounts given, that he may be stimulated to secure for himself the bounteous blessings incident to a course at Maryland Agricultural College ; and if t)y chance, a radiant gleam should penetrate the recesses of some doubting mind and induce it to avail itself of a College education, we shall consider our work not done in vain. The editors have no apologies to force upon their readers. We put forth our best efforts to accomplish the end of our desires; surely none can ask more of us. We place this, the fourth volume of the Reveillk, into your hands, trusting that you may find much that will please you as well as something to criticise. ' DEDICATED TO Captain % W. Silvester. ' yi ' Our President — R. W. Silvester. THE subject of our sketch was born in Norfolk, Va., September 16th, 1857. Having entered the Virginia Military Institute, at Lexington in 1873, he was graduated four years later. The following autumn he was appointed assistant in Mathematics. German and Natural Sciences in Char- lotte Hall Academy; beginning in this way to practice that profession to which his life has been devoted, — namely, education. In ' 79 he was placed in full charge of his work at Charlotte Hall, and in 1885 was elected Principal of this venerable and highly respected institution. In 1892 he was called to the Presidency of the Maryland Agricultural College, and has been hon- ored by unanimous re-election eight successive terms. Down whatever lines his energies have been directed , our president has lent an intelligent, practical and persistent enthusiasm ; consequently, his efforts have uniformly achieved success. As an instance of this we may note his administration at Charlotte Hall Academy; through his efforts, during his term of office as Principal there, the number of students was more than doubled, and the standard of scholarship was raised to a point highly gratifying to his friends and the friends of the Institution, — and so when the administration of the Agricultural College was reor- ganized in ' 92, Captain Silvester ' s name was presented as a consequence of his splendid record, and the wis- dom of his election has never been questioned. He brought to re-enforce him in his arduous responsibil- ity, the three requisite accomplishments for the emer- gency; namely, talent as an instructor; ability as a financier and executive ; and successful and practical experience as a farmer. From the outset Captain Silvester resolved that the sphere of the College must be widened, and that the College would not reach its maximum degree of usefuUness until it should be recognized as the Farmers ' College of the State, as it is to-day. Ac- cordingly, largely through his efforts, the following State Bureaus have been organized and established as adjuncts of the College : State Chemical and Fertilizer Department (reorganized). Department of Farmers ' Institute. BARRACKS. State Horticultural Department. Department for Inspection of Dairy Food Stuffs. In addition to this, he was a pioneer in champion- ing the introduction of Nature studies in our public schools, and detailed members of his faculty to lecture at Teachers ' Institutes for the encouragement of this work, now becoming so important a factor in modern education. Captain Silvester was active, too, in promoting the creation of our State Geological Survey, and has been its Secretary since its organization in ' 96. Indeed, in whatever reforms that tend to benefit our agricul- tural interests, he has alwaj ' S been found at the front. Thanks to his indefatigable energj ' , five handsome structures for educational purposes have been erected at the College, and the old building itself refitted and enlarged; while four new branches of instruction have been established. President Silvester commands the esteem and con- fidence of the State to a marked degree, and his talent for conceiving eloquence in advocating, and tact and ability in executing, make him well merit the encom- ium : Suavier in inodo, fortiter in re . For eight years he has presided with efficiency and dignity over his Faculty, by all of whom he is re- spected and beloved ; the same may justly be said of his students and their parents. Mrs. Silvester, his accomplished wife, presides with charm and grace over his home, which is a center of social pleasure, and the cordial reception here accorded the student reassures him that his president desires to be, and is his best friend. — By a member ot tlie Faculty.

TyTHILE it is true that chanije does not always ' ' signify advance, yet an impartial examination into the metliods now in vogue in any field of natural science must convince even an unwilling observer that in the main the movement in science teaching has been forward and not backward. It should be understood, however, that " method " is only a tool and that everything, therefore, depends upon the man behind the method. Hence advance along the line of teaching, just as along all lines of work, implies progress in the man as well as improvement in the tool. Owing to the rapidity with which the borders of natural science are enlarging in these latter daj ' s, the text-l)Ook of yesterday is out of date to-day. New facts have been brought to light, new truths have been discovered and the text-book statement has become misleading or only a half truth. Conse- quently it is no longer an incontestible proof of the truth of a statement to know that it forms a part of a book. Not that the text-l)Ook is of no further use in our schools and colleges; on the other hand, it is an important factor in science teaching, but unless the man behind the desk knows more than is contained within the covers of a text-book it is a case of the blind leading the blind, for both are sure to fall into a ditch. It is therefore essential that the teacher should be a maker of thought as well as an expounder of truth. The old scientists like Priestly, Huxley Darwin, Helmholtz and many others that we love to honor, labored faithfully and builded nobly, but they realized fully the boundless fields in their respective realms of science which remained still unexplored. No factor has contributed more largely to the passing away of the old text-book methods than the broaden- ing of the horizon of knowledge. And with this ex- pansion every first class institution in the land has come to realize that no man can teach successfully all the branches of natural science, but that the times demand a master in each and every field. It is nec- essary, therefor, that every scientist should know the boundary of his subject in some one direction, and to 14 this end he should himself be an investigator. It is not enough that a man should think the thoughts of other men but he should, by personal investigation, bring to light the thoughts of Him who thought mat- ter and energy into being. It is not claimed that the man who is capable of indep endent investigation is necessarily the most successful in imparting knowl- edge, but, other things being equal, he who is to im- part truth can do so most successfully if he is capa- ble of bringing new phases of truth before the world. With the passing of the old text-book method, combined with other influences came the demand for specialists, not only in our educational institutions liut in all the walks of life. It is the man who can do some one thing better than any one else can do it who holds in his hand the key to success. The me- chanic that can do finer work and produce a better article than his competitor finds a ready sale for his wares. The farmer that can raise a better crop than his neighbors commands the markets of the world, and these results can be obtained only through con- centration and specialization. Under these influ- ences, the methods in science teaching advanced to the lecture and demonstration stage, which had many advantages over the text-book method in that it put more of the personality of the teacher into his work, and enabled him to collect the best thoughts from the varied sources from which thej- could be obtained and to present them in the clearest light. It brought the teacher into closer contact with nature, and enabled him to l)ring much that was new to the attention of those around him. On the other hand this method failed or was only partially successful because it brought the student into contact with his subject through only two of the avenues liy which nature intended him to gain knowledge, viz., hearing and sight, while the avenues of touch, taste, smell and the sense of temperature remained for the most part closed. It enabled the average student to see onlj ' what his teacher saw, and that often very dimi} ' . It gave to the student no adequate means of express- ing the whole truth as it appeared to him, and without expression truth is onh- dormant. However it was the instrument by means of which the student of scientific truth stood at last within the holy of holies in touch directly with nature, for gradually out of this method came the student laborator} ' . The first to make its appearance in this country was the chemical laboratory. This was followed by labora- tories for the study of botany, zoology, biology, ento- mology, physics, physiology, mechanics, pathology, horticulture, agriculture and all other branches of natural science with their sul -divisions. The first botanical laboratory in this country was established less than a third of a century ago, and many of the laboratories for other sciences were inaugurated in still more recent years. Several causes contributed to the slowness of the growth of the student labora- 15 tory, among which may be mentioned first, the initial cost of establishing- a well equipped laboratory and the subsequent maintenance of the same; second, doubt in the minds of the educators themselves as to the practicability of the method, coupled with the lack of time for laboratory work in the already crowded curricula. On the other hand, since stu- dents gradually turned their faces toward those insti- tutions where laboratories were provided, they have become to be a necessity in the equipment of all first class institutions. Not onlj ' is this the case with Universities and Colleges but even our best High Schools have wisely adopted the same method. It is true that some of the laboratories are poorlj ' equipped and sometimes still more poorly manned, nevertheless the method has done much not only for the advance- ment of science teaching but also for improvement in the means of expression. It brings the student into closer contact with his subject through all of his senses and leads him to express truth thus learned through the training of the hand as well as bj ' spoken or written word. It is clear that the training of the hand has been too long neglected and it is certainly an encouraging sign of the times that manual training is entering more and more into the curricula of our educational institutions. Every piece of machinery, every intricate mechanicism devised by man, is but the expression of a truth which was first received in the brain and afterwards given to the world through the hand. Therefore without the training of the hand many noble ideas and great thoughts as beau- tiful and as well timed as can be found in the finest poems must have remained unexpressed. We must not maintain a too narrow view of what is meant bj- the word laboratory. Formerly this term conveyed to the general mind four walls within which impracticable human beings evolved, at the expense of time and money, useless theories in regard to mat- ter and energy. Even at the present time there are many so-called practical men who look upon the worker in the laljoratory as a mere theorist, forgetting that many of the benefits, which they as practical men enjoy, are theirs because some theorist was foolish enough to bend for hours over his microscope or to watch through the long hours of the night beside his crucible. But this idea is slowly changing and the world is learning that there is no sharp dividing line between the theoretical and the practi- cal, for what is merelj theoretical to-daj- may become intenselj- jiractical tomorrow. The laboratorj ' in its broadest and highest ' sense is coming to be looked upon as any place where one maj ' come into close contact with his subject. It may be in the work-shop, in the field, in the orchard, in the home or within a college building. With this advance we find the college man working side by side with the practical man of business. Theory and practice have united their forces and are accomplishing infinitely more 16 than either could do alone. The time has gone forever when the man of science can remain within the four walls of a College laboratory and solve suc- cessfully problems of practical value. Certain phases of these problems must be settled by the aid of the microscope or by chemical tests, but a complete solu- tion involves, in almost all cases, field study and application. Laboratory methods together with the ever-increas- ing volumes of information have made elective courses in our curricula a necessity, and have created a demand for post-graduate work in all branches of natural scienc e. It is true that there is great diversity of opinion as to what should constitute post graduate work, but it is generally conceded that it should be along the lines of investigation. As a natural result of the enlarged idea of the laboratory combined with the desire for postgraduate work we find a demand for so-called University extension. Knowledge gained through special study along all lines of natural science is now carried from educational centers to homes in all parts of the land iu the form of lectures, printed matter, pictures, views, specimens or manufactured products. The tendency of modern educational work is more and more toward carrying information personally to the masses. This results in a broader knowledge of men and tends to bring educational institutions into closer touch with those whom they are intended to help. Scientific investigators as well as teachers are con- stantly in search of newer and better methods of de- termining and of imparting truth, and this together with the broader laboratory methods now in vogue leads them in scores to visit other countries in search of new apparatus, new methods and new truths. Many, however, are disappointed to find in foreign laboratories no new apparatus, no magic facilities for the solution of difficult problems, and return without realizing the fact that the great benefit to be derived is the contact with other men, and the learning to look at great problems from other than our own accustomed point of view. These, briefly stated, are some of the advances that the present century has witnessed along the line of science teaching. It is impossible to predict the advances that will be made by the coming generation ; undoubtedly, however, they will be as numerous and as striking as those that have already appeared and perhaps even more important; but whatever they may be and to whatever heights they may lead may the old Maryland Agricultural College catch the step and keep pace with the progress of the century. — C.

WeiOAND ni tory of Cla»» of 1900. cMust I then Leave You) " — Shakespeare. CAN it be that four years have elapsed since the Class of 1900 was first enrolled upon ihe records of Maryland Agricultural College. Yes, ' tis true, — ' tis true. As I look back over these years, — this speck of sand in the glass of time, — it seems to me but a dream of mingled pleasure, hope and trouble; and yet is reality. The most perceptible change that has woven itself into our existence during these four years, — the years linking together boyhood and man- hood, — is truly wonderful — a study in itself. Yes, four years have sped by and we are now Sen- iors — soon to be Seniors no longer. We were Fresh- men then and rest assured that all that was due the meek, mild, innocent, unpretending Freshmen, accord- ing to college laws, came upon 1900 ' s thirty-eight Freshmen in the most unmitigated, chilling, diaboli- cal form. We were thirty-eight in September and, but for a few who left us during the year, all survived their supreme torture and responded to the roll call in June. This slight and general touch upon our Fresh- man year seems to me to be sufficient, for in my opin- ion it would be unjust to the feelings and memory of my classmates to specify each little incident. So leaving this let us pass swiftly over a pleasant sum- mer and take a second glance at 1900 once more assembled at Maryland Agricultural College. Sophomores! What? Sophomores! Those haughty, overbearing fellows! Those gentlemen of leisure, whose every beck and nod the trembling Freshman answers ! Those demigods ! Are we to take their places! Yes, we were to take their places, but not our thirty-eight. Twenty-six of us answered to the roll call of September, 1897. Why so few? If you were to take into consideration the many causes for leaving, together with the greatest reagent in the disintegration of a class, — conditions, — surely you would not ask this question? Although our class was cut down greatly in this year by the departure of so many, yet we welcomed into our midst several new classmates who have been and are indeed an honor to 28 1900. What a change has came over my classmates ! The milder and meeker they seemed as Fresmen— the wilder and more inconsistent they seem with the trembling crowd of new boys. I stand aside and watch them as they dash down the hall with " per- suaded " in hand and devilment in heart, and I ask myself the question, " what is it all? " when a still small voice whispers, — " Sophomores will be Sopho- mores. " They were true Sophomores in the Fresh- man ' s idea of that word, but, dear reader, should j ' ou wish to apply that preponderous term to them, let me — once a Sophomore — beg of you to substitute that little word " mischief " for " wisdom. " The Sopho- more is generally considered the most difficult year through which to come safely ; so thought half of our twenty-six. As the year began to near its end, troubled looks could be seen on many faces ; the cause of this trouble could be plainly seen when the final records were posted ; many had failed. They are no longer with us, but we, their remaining classmates, sincerely hope that success may follow them. In this year our class purchased a " class banner, " — the first of its kind in Maryland Agricul- tural College ; and I think I am right in saying that 1900 is and truly ought to be proud of the banner. Time does not stand still nor could we : so when another most pleasant Summer was gone, and another Autumn was just in its morning, thirteen members of our original thirty-eight clasped hands in true fellow- ship to begin the work of the Junior year. However, we were not thirteen long, for we soon welcomed among us a new classmate, who socially, mentally and physically proved himself worthy of 1900 and upon whom we looked as a true addition to our class. The year passed smoothly along. About the middle of the year one of our fourteen left us to enter Cornell. We have since learued that he is doing well. And so we were left thirteen to finish the year. In June we gave a banquet in honor of the Seniors. When we look back upon it, it seems to be a little golden thread building the two classes together, and we never think of it without the deepest feelings of pleas- ure and good will. Although that number thirteen may have some mystic charm, some unaccountable influence over mankind, yet it never exercised it over 1900, except in its most benefitting and elevating form, for never was unity in a class more pronounced, never was good will more free and open than among the members of 1900 in its Junior year. It is evident that 1900 has commenced to feel its higher responsi- bility; another change has come over its members; they are more sedate and more attentive to duty in all lines, they now begin to look to the higher aims of life, — tis none too early and tis well. We have passsed another Summer — yes, we have passed our last Summer as students at Maryland Agricultural College. We are Seniors now. We are on the topmost round of the ladder and can look 29 back without hearts throbbing tenderly and almost longingly for those happy, careless, college days again ! Are we sad? Could we think of our parting classmates, could we think of parting schoolmates all; could we think of leaving other friends met in our happy college days, without that little indescribable twang at the tender heart chords? Without that deep drawn sigh that springs from the too full heart? Without that far away, dreamy look of sweet reverie? Yes, we are sad. And yet a feeling that the world is waiting for us arises in our breasts and makes us somewhat eager to go out and take up our allotted part. Only one of our thirteen did not return this year and we are a little dozen now. Again has the originality of 1900 shown itself, this time in the introduction of a class ring into Maryland Agricul- tural College. We feel proud that we should be the first to have class rings, and we hope that succeeding classes will uphold it and institute it as a custom. The year has been generally uneventful and I shall not dwell upon it at length. The end is near — yes, the end is near : even as I write I can see it becoming brighter and brighter through the gradually thinning haze ; may each and everyone of us reach it safely and gloriously. — S. M. Peach, Historiati. ■ ' Friends, that parting tear reserve it, Though ' tis doubly dear to me; Could I think I did deserve it, How much happier would I be! Scenes of woe and scenes of pleasure, Scenes that former thoughts renew; Scenes of woe and scenes of pleasure, Now a sad and last adieu! " — Richard Grack. L jm 30 Prot)hecy of 1900. " We are all at times unconscious Prophets. " Spurgeon. THIS was the heading and a part of the first col- umn that met mj ' ej es as I picked up the Sun paper on June 30, 1915. The heading had quite disgusted me, since the papers for the last few years had been so full of discussion about air ships. As I have said I was some- what disgusted, but as I read on down the name Choate attracted m} ' atten- tion. Choate ? Most assur- edly, — E. S. Choate had been my classmate at Maryland Agricultural College ; he had been graduated from that institution with ten other classmates and myself in 1900. And so, being Baltimore Sun, June SO, iril.5. " A Great Stir in the World of Mechanics— The Air=Ship at last Perfected— The Eyes of Mechanics centered upon Mr. E. S. Choate — His Actions watched with Trembling Interest. " " Though it is now but 1915 and the century is in its morning, it is believed that the climax, if not in everything, at least in mechanics has been reached ; that Mr. Choate ' s completion and per- fection of the Air-Ship is a nucleus about which the other acts of the century will cluster. After five 3-ears of toil, adversitj ' and perseverence, Mr. Choate has at last set the Keystone upon his work and can now, etc., etc. somewhat aroused by this little remembrance of the 1900 class. I looked at the page a little more closely and had read the first few lines in the column when the feeling of disgust overcome me and I la3 ' back in ni} chair and thought that if the class of 1900 had turned out one who could or would cherish such ethereal ideas, he ought to die the death of an aereonaut. I paid no more attention to this passing folly, as I con- sidered it, finished reading the paper and went about my business. On July 1 0th I picked the paper up and in the leading 31 column read the following: " Mr. Choate embarks to-day. " Out of nothing but curiosity I read all that was said about the air-ship in the paper that daj and from this reading gathered the substance that Mr. Choate had completed the machine, had made full preparations for a long sail and, with a party consist- ing of himself, two scientists, and another mechanic, was to embark for the Moon on July 10th. What a world is this thought I, when civilization and intelligence are at the height to give credence to any such thing as a voyage to the Moon. For my part I did not wish to give it even a shadow of belief; and yet there was Mr. Choate, as I well knew, a man of the highest reputation, both as a mechanic and mathematician. To tell the truth, I was quite divided as to my opinion and would not have been able to make any definite statement as to what I really thought. Time passed on — yes, years passed by and nothing more was heard from Mr. Choate except that his factories were still flourishing and that the construc- tion of air-ships was still going on according to orders left by him at his departure. This at least showed his implicit faith in the success of his project. I was in Europe in 1919 when the world suddenly became afire with interest in Mr. Choate. The for- eign papers took up the cry in their usual firery man- ner and it spread with fabulous speed throughout the civilized world. Mr. Choate had returned from the Moon — yes, from the Moon — with glowing ac- counts of his voyage thither — the condition of things found there and the condition of things he had left. The animals found on the Moon were all sizes and natures, — some fierce and some gentle; the stage of man had not yet been reached, that is, not until the exploring party had reached there. The flora of the Moon was beautiful ; the new minerals were wonder- ful. Already had there been hundreds of volunteers to return with Mr. Choate to the New World. Among these were some of America ' s greatest and most promising men. All of the air-ships made had been engaged and they were continually being made to accommodate the flow of population to the Moon. And so time passed on. Every few months an air-ship returned to the Earth and always guided back to the Moon a flock of those unwieldly birds laden with hundreds of adventurers. I say adven- turers, but really it has passed the meaning of adven- ture to take a trip to the Moon, and was now looked upon as any other safe, interesting and profitable voyage. About 1935 it became well known that an Emperor had been chosen and that the Empire of the Moon had been well established. Political, educational and business institutions of all kinds had been founded; cities had grown up and were still growing, and in general the Empire of the Moon was in a most 32 flourishing and prosperous condition, already offering to its sister Earth competition in manufactured pro- ducts and natural resources. This is how things stood in 1940, when I decided to take a trip to the Moon and, if possible, to estab- lish myself in business there. I did not like the idea of going up alone and could think of no better com- panion in such a voyage than one of my classmates from Maryland Agricultural College. Having come to this conclusion I decided to take a week or two in order that I might see as many of my classmates as possible and immediately started out to look for them. But I soon found that I was much behind them; they were all in the Moon. Some had been there but a few years while the majority had been there twenty years or more. Had there been any lingering doubt in my mind or any indecision, most assuredlj ' this would have d ispelled it and given me a final decision. I was now all hope and anticipation and could not arrange to start too soon. On the 15th of May, 1940, — how well do I remem- ber it! — I took leave of Earth just wrapped in her tender, verdant garment, and started for the Moon. My chief aim now was to find what had befallen my classmates, since I found they had all gone to the Moon. On and on we sailed ; the Earth grew smaller and smaller, a mere dark speck in space ; then one morning when I awoke and took my usual look around, it was gone ; it had disappeared during the night. But as darkness fell around us and the stars began to steal out one by one, a beautiful lustrous star was pointed out to me, — it was the Earth ! What my thoughts were as I gazed upon that statelj ' star, I cannot say. We landed safely a few days later on the Moon and at once thoughts of the class of 1900 occupied mj ' mind to the exclusion of all others. Our ship landed in a small country town and I went from there to Luna Caput, the metropolis and capital of the Moon. I dismissed the carriage when I was once in the city and decided to walk, that I might get a better view of everything. I started up the street some paces behind an elderly gentleman. He was walking slowly and I soon overtook him. As I came up with him he turned and spoke with a jileas- ant smile. I returned the salute and slackened my pace that I might keep along with him. I asked him a few questions and deduced from his answers that he was a man of high learning. He seemed readj ' to converse and there was a pleasant mann er and magnetism about him that seemed to attract me. I was eager to learn anything about the Moon and we soon fell into a conversation. Almost unconsciously I strolled on with mj- companion, charmed with his speech, when I found that we had entered a park and that we were standing near a seat under the shade of a tree. He motioned me to sit down. We both sat down and he continued to tell me about the Moon and its rapid progress during the few years that it 33 had been discovered and inhabited. He seemed to know many men in the Empire and I thought it a proper time to inquire about my classmates. " Do you know Mr. Choate ? " I asked. " O yes, " he answered, " I know Mr. Choate personally, in fact I am well acquainted with him. I had the honor of coming up from the Earth with him on his fourth voyage. He is a most energetic man in his line of work — mechanics. Besides being at the head of the largest machine factory in the Empire he has established several schools in Mechan- ical and Electrical Engineering, and is interested in almost all the factories and establishments of any kind relating to mechanics. In company with a former collegemate he is now at work upon some branch in higher mathematics and astronomy. Of course in the later science many things are known now and are daily being found out that were never dreamed of in the astronomical teachings on the Earth. Whenever Mr. Choate speaks of his first voyage to the Moon, he does not take all the praise, but frankly acknowledges that he would have given the project up, because of the scarcity of air above the Earth, had it not been for the perseverance and final success of a chemist who aided him in this trouble. This chemist has won for himself a name not soon to be forgotten in the chemical world— it is Mr. Church. " Mr. Church came up with Mr. Choate on his first voyage and has been here ever since. We might truly say that he has consecrated himself to his idol — chemistry. The new chemicals found in the Moon have afforded him material not only for original work, but material for some of the finest volumes on modern science. He can always be found in his beautiful laboratory, either buried in some work of original research, or answering the numerous ques- tions that come to him. " Since I have mentioned these two gentlemen, it has occurred to me that they are but two of eleven of the most illustrious men of the Luna Empire. These eleven men seem to have been related in some way on the Earth and by some act of fortune have all assembled on the Moon and still retain that relation. They are now the leading men of the Empire and, indeed have proven themselves worthy of their posi- tion. If you have the time, " said he, as he drew out his watch, which registered 3 P. M., " I shall give you a little history of the other nine. " I gave my most willing consent, as it was indeed the thing foremost in my mind, and the old man renewed his narrative. " Mr. Ewens, together with a few others, leads the list of our most noted and illustrious lawyers. He has been here about twenty years, and during that time has not only won for himself the name of a great lawyer, but has taken an active part in the govern- 34 ment, and has been Prime Minister of the Empire for four years during his career. Mr. Ewens is also interested in the banking and insurance business. He established the First National Bank and has placed the national currenci ' on a firm basis. " Mr. Grason came up in the early part of the Moon ' s career as an inhal)ited world and has been here ever since. He was an excellent lawyer until he devoted himself to politics. When the population of the Moon began to increase and institutions of different kinds began to spring up, it become evident that some form of government had to be adopted and instituted at once. A congress of the leading men was held for the purpose of making this important decision. At this meeting it was decided that the Moon should be an Empire and Mr. Grason was unanimously chosen Emperor. That he is the man for the place is not for an instant disputed, for this is most clearl}- shown by the harmonj ' in which the nation moves along. " Mr. Groff has been in the Moon for several years. His talent is decidedly in the military line. When, some years ago it was suggested that as the Empire grew, some attention ought to be paid to its military defense, it was decided to establish an armj ' . The Congress convened and with a unanimous vote selected Mr. Groff as the man, and the only man in the Empire to take charge of the armies. Yes, Mr. Groff was made General both by congressional and popular acclamation, and the troops most certainly show the efficiency of their General. By his advice the Government is now erecting a Military Academy. Mr. Jenifer has been in this city since it was but a mere village ; his business establishments have grown in equal pace with the city. He is a most thorough business man. His firms are recognized as the most reliable, not only in the city, but over the whole Empire. Mr. Jenifer has been elected to Con- gress from this citj ' several times. His views as to government have been most instrumental in estab- lishing this as the firmest Empire. He lives in one of the finest and most beautiful residences in the city, and has about him innumerable friends. " Mr. Kefauver is thoroughly given to the diffusion of knowledge. He practiced law for several years with the greatest success, but soon gave it up for the higher avocation of teaching. He is the founder of the ' Alpha Omega Universitj ' ' in which Classics and Mathematics are carried, we might well say, to Omega. He is president of this institution and is chief instructor in the branches of higher Mathemat- ics and Astronomy. His works and text-books in these are original and deep. Not only does Mr. Ke- fauver show an interest in this line of work, but he is recognized as a standard author ; his works of fic- tion and his discourses on Psychology and Economy are especially popular and are widely read. " " Ah, " said I, perfectly forgetful of the fact that I had not 35 yet appeared to know any of my classmates, " Ah, I knew he would be illustrious! " The old man looked at me in an astonished manner. " Oh! " said I, noticeing this astonished look and coming to myself once more, " of course you do not understand me ; I have been dreaming. Kefauver was ray room-mate at college ; the eleven you spoke of were my classmates Twelve of us were graduated from the Maryland Agricultural College in the year of 1900; I am the twelfth. I have just arrived from the Earth today to join ni}- classmates. It has indeed touched my heart to hear you tell of the unbounded success of each one, and I know you can say the same about the remaining four, because thej- all had the spirit. " The old man could say nothing for some seconds and only gazed at me in dumb silence. " You were one of that class ? " he finally asked as he regained his speech. " Yes, " I answered, " I was one of that class. " " And your name is . " " Peach, " I said, finishing the sentence for him. The old man reached out his hand and clasped my own — " Success must be yours. " " And what do you expect to do ? " " I expect to practice law or teach the languages; l)ut I want first to hear about my other four class- mates and then to see each and every one. And now where is Sappington ? ' ' " Ah! " he said, " if you were to ask me which of your classmates is most widely known for his occu- pation alone, I should say Mr. Sappington. He is a physician and surgeon. His practice is immense; he cannot possibly see all who come for him, and indeed has time to give advice in only some cases. He has established several hospitals and a University of Medicine. Yes, Dr. Sappington is always going; he has performed many surgical operations and has published several works on Anatomy and the use of medicine. He has made a thorough diagnosis of all the new diseases that have confronted him in the New World and, indeed, he seems to have the little microbes perfectly under his control. " Mr. Sudler is a biologist and botanist. The fauna and flora of the Moon have afforded him a most extensive field for research ; and in his usual energetic manner he has made most thorough investigations. He is the founder of the L,una University of Tech- nique, founded as he says, on the principle of the College from which he received his first degree on the Earth. It is a most thorough College in the sciences, especially Biology and Botany, in which branches Mr. Sudler is instructor. His many works on these subjects are read with the greatest pleasure and interest, both here and on the Earth. ' ' Mr. Talbott has not been here as long as the most of his classmates, but has indeed won for him- self a name. He is one of the most brilliant lawyers 36 in the Empire. For awhile he held the position of Professor of L,anguages in one of our Universities, and during that time published a volume of notes and criticisms on the orations of Cicero. Although he was successful in this work he did not think it was his avocation, and gave it up for law. He has been much interested in the government of the Empire and is now Prime Minister. His administration lias been characterized by the most perfect harmony. " And now I come to the last, but not the least — Mr. Weigand. He is President and Chief Chemist in the ' Weigand Universitj ' . ' For a while in all the Scientific schools Remsen ' s Chemistrys were used, but these have now quite given way to ' Weigand ' s Complete Chemistrj ' ' He has discovered many new chemical substances and his treatises on these are read with pleasure even by those who know nothing of Chemistry. He has published several works on scientific and political subjects, and he is recognized as one of the finest writers of our time. His labora- tory at the University is a wonder in itself, and he moves around in it as if he were in his heaven. Now j ' ou have in a few words the substance of what I know about your classmates. Of course I could talk to you for hours about these and other illustrious men of the Empire, but it is growing late, " said he as he drew out his watch which registered 6.30 P. M., " and I must soon be at home. " With these words he arose, gave me a cordial invi- tation to spend the night with him. I declined this with many thanks, promising that I would see him before many days, and we parted. It was getting late; the sun was just going down and everything was still, as I strolled out of the park. I took a room in a hotel for the night and dreamed sweet dreams of the class of 1900 until the day had well commenced. That day I went around to see all of my classmates and to my heart ' s content found each one. I shall never forget that day, nor do I wish to ; my college daj s and youth seemed passed over again. This is all. This article is written by request and I take pleas- ure in placing before the public eye a true status of the Class of 1900 as it exists in the Empire of the Moon. — Prophet.

" Cla History of 1901 ' I HE rapidity with which time has passed since ■ • we first congregated as fellow classmates in the portals of Maryland Agricultural College can only be realized by those who have gone through it. Again we are called upon to give a sketch of the class that will be the first to be graduated from Maryland Agricultural College in the twentieth cen- tury. One bright morning in September saw us all gathered together in the College where we were installed as cadets, and here our duties began. We experienced much the bewilderment concerning the military routine, with which we were not familiar and the torments of those ever frolicksome Sopho- mores. Our Class started under very favorable cir- cumstances with a roll of twenty-eight members, everyone of whom was inspired with the hope of some day attaining the honors of graduates of the institution. Our Class from the beginning took great interest in foot ball, and we are proud to say that several of our members were represented on the team of that year. We naturally looked forward to the coming holidays which appeared to be so far off; but the interest that we took in our work made the time pass rapidly. Christmas at last come, Christ- mas, that time of the year, when all anxieties and sorrows are banished from the mind, brought its usual joys and pleasures, and we forgot for the time being the studies with which we had been toiling so hard, and entered into that spirit of generosity and thankfulness. When duty called us again it was by no means with downcast hearts that we resumed our studies. When the new year came we saw the greater part of the year ' s work lying before us. We also realized that examinations were near at hand, but summoning that determination which has never failed us, with the encouragement and kind co-operation of our professors, we marched on to victorJ as does a true soldier when inspired by the steady voice of his commander. Our Class from the first has manifested much interest in the Literarj ' Societies, and the bene- fits which we have derived from them will be of priceless value to us ' " later years. Time rolled on 40 until spring at last came and we were once more happy to see the base ball season open. Our Class was well represented on the base ball team and some of our members were most active in landing the Intercollegiate championship pennant. We could soon discern that examinations were fast approaching, and it was these examinations which would tell if anj- one of us had not done his work during the past year as he should have done it. But our Class as usual was up to the standard, and when the marks were given out there was ijut a few who had not passed through the gate to a higher class. The com- mencement was soon over and we were heartily sorry to see the Class of ' 98 leave us, but were reconciled at the hope that some day we would pass out with like honors to join these in the battles of life. Once more we were home to see those whom we had found it so hard to leave nearly one year ago. But our vacation passed quickly, and once more we found ourselves gathered together for another j ' ear ' s work, not as the Freshman but as the Sophomore Class. But, alas! not with the twent3 ' -eight men who an- swered to their names one j-ear ago — but nine now answer. We were fortunate enough to have four new members join us who increased our number to thir- teen. This was a great blow to our Class to have its ranks thinned to such an extent. We soon settled down to hard stud} ' once more, and although our work was much harder than it had Ijeen during the previous year, we did not let this discourage us, but were inspired with more energ} ' and zeal with which to carry it on. The year passed quickly, and when the end came we could say with a clear conscience that we had spent a year at college that would never be regretted by anj ' one of us, and as we parted for our homes could it seem possible that the next time that we would assemble at college we would assemble as Juniors — the class which once appeared to be so far above us! Our three months of vacation passed as quickly as does all time when spent in joy and pleasure, and before we could realize that it had gone we had again returned to our college work. But only one-fourth of the original number represented the Junior Class. Three years of our college life has passed; thej ' have indeed l een eventful ones, and our eyes have been opened to the bustling strife of the world that we are to meet. Our Class has dwindled sadlj ' , and circumstances have called away manj ' of our most progressive members, but those remaining are unanimous in their determination to complete the course in which they have thus far been successful. We now realize that before many da3 ' s we shall be Seniors, and responsibilities will fall thick and fast around us. May we as a class nobly face them and ■ No doubtful hope.s, no anxiou.s fears.

History of the Cld»» of 1902, AH ! how vi -id in our meinorj ' is a bright autumnal day in September, now nearly two years ago. This day was to us one of the most eventful of our lives, for it was the day on which we began our career as students of the Maryland Agricultural Col- lege. After taking our examinations and getting fairlj- started in our classes, we proceeded to accomplish the work which lay before us. But in this we were often interrupted by the much dreaded Sophomore, who, for several weeks, made life a burden to us by their frequent midnight visits, and it was a lucky Freshman indeed, who did not wake up some night to find himself on the floor and his bed on him. Or else some morning to come to reveille with his face painted up like that of a Com- anche Indian. The foot ball season now being at hand, we nat- urally turned our attention to this game ; and I am proud to say that some of our members made a most enviable record in the games that foll owed. And even the Sophomores became so engrossed in this sport that they left us entirely alone, and for some time we enjoyed peace and comfort. The long monotonj of college life was at last broken by the Thanksgiving holidays ; and most of of our class availed themselves of this opportunity to visit our homes. This holiday was soon followed by another much longer one at Christmas. This passed only too quickly for us, and we found on coming back that we were confronted by, what seemed to most of us, an insurmountable barrier — examinations. However, we went to work with a will to surpass the obstacle which lay in our path. But we found when we had come to it that it was not nearly so hard as we had imagined, and nearly all of us reached the other side in safety. We now began to look forward with great interest to the oncoming base ball season, and we spent many evenings in the gj mnasium preparing for the team. At last warm weather came, and we could be seen on 45 the campus everj- evening, striving for a place on the team, and in this several of our members were successful. Tennis, too, afforded us great ])leasure, and man}- of us participated in the livel} ' games of the season. One of our members was chosen to represent the Col- lege in the Intercollegiate contest at Westminster. The Spring passed quicklj-, and we soon found ourselves face to face with the final examinations. These did not .seem so terrifying to us as did the former ones, and the majoritj ' of us made excellent records. Following the final examinations was the com- mencement week which we all thorougly enjoyed. We now went to our homes to spend onr Summer vaca- tion. This, however, quickly passed, and we found our- selves back to old Maryland Agricultural College again. Back — but no longer the timid, fearful Freshman, but the bold, much-dreaded Sophomore. It was now our turn to hold p the reputation of the Sophomores by hazing. But we, as an exception to the rule, did not take advantage of our authority bj ' chastising the under classmen. We merely pla5 ' ed " tricks " on them. The daily routine of college life is not now so hard to us as it had been the previous year. Our enthusi- asm over athletics has not lieen waned in the least, and we still strive to hold up the reputation which our class gained in this line last j ear. The semi-annual examinations did not frighten us in the least, for we did not think that all the long hours which we had spent in studj ' would go for naught; and in this we were not disappointed, for we all passed. Again the beautiful Spring is here, the time of the year when we are all inspired to do noble work. Now, m3 ' classmates, let us one, and all keep this inspiration alive within us, so that the work which we do in the future will be worth}- of the Class of 1902. — Historian. " " " (D- 46 " Beautusillc. " Blest is man, remote from care, Like the ancient race of patriarchs; A yeoman ' s duty is his all : Of miser ' s money knows he naut;lit. Fierce slaughter of his brother man, The struggle with the mighty deep, The lawyer ' s lore, the demagogue, In him excite but passing thought. But in his vineyard is his pride. He prunes and trains his supple vines, Or over velvet meadows wide He counts his glossy, grazing kine. His honey pure he stores in jars, Or shears his unresisting ewes; When Autumn shows his graceful head. He plucks his fruit and garners in From well-tilled field, the golden grain.

ON the morning of September 25th, 1899, about twenty-five boys arrived at College Park and commenced that little tramp, — historical for its con- nection with a class each year, — to the Maryland Agricultural College. Let us touch lightlj on this journej- and fix our attention on the old storm-beaten building which now loomed up before us. Feelings of mingled fear and hope filled the heart of each and everj- one as thej ' viewed this frowning structure, sullen and sombre in the morning light. Each one in his glowing imagination could see him- self from some particular window, perhaps, by his thumbs, or perhaps by his feet. With a vague ap- prehension of some impending evil, or indeed they knew not what. — they entered the building and glided lightly al out the first floor, ever fearful of making too much noise, or committing some great wrong. However, this suspense was not of long duration, for they were soon escorted each to his re- spective room in a most friendly manner b}- the Officer of the Daj-. This last named personage in after days came to plaj a much greater and more severe part in their lives than they had ever dreamed of. After having eaten a slight meal, — for this was their first at College, — they began to put their rooms in a little better shape, taking a peep out of their doors now and then, for terrible things had been told them about the Sophomores. Seeing that nothing in common had taken place they made bold to go out and make friends with those of their classmates who had spent a j ' ear in the Preparatory Department, and indeed, with any of the I)oys who might show the least sign of encouragement. The first night passed awaj peacefuUj-, and they began to think that Maryland Agricultural College was not quite as bad as reports had made it. The next day was spent in finding the different classes and professors. Then a week sped by and found them quite initiated into college work. Two weeks found them surrounded l)v a number of books, over 53 which already a inonoton ' had commenced to hover. But this monotonj- — broken by the out-door and gym- nasium sports, — was short-lived. Foot ball had commenced, and how proud did 1903 feel that — though she had but one representative — she had a representative upon whom she could relj ' not only to do his part, but to bring off laurels. But foot ball had not so far engrossed our thoughts as to make us forgetful of the fact that a most pleasant - break in our every day course was at hand — the Thanksgiving holidays. Many of our members went home to spend these few days of recreation and en- joyment. But as all pleasures, these were soon gone, and once more we found ourselves at Marj ' land Agri- cultural College. How swiftly the next few weeks flew by I will not saj ' , but scarcely had the " rats " — by which most elevating name we were now gener- ally called — gotten themselves to work once more before the announcement for the Christmas holidays was made; while pleasant in itself, — 3 ' et when associated with the fact that it had to end, makes it painful to write this part of my little record, so I pass lightly over it and bring my classmates once more to Marj ' land Agricultural College. Ninety-nine was gone and nineteen hundred installed. What resolu- tions were made with the new year I do not know. 1)ut in looking over the hajipy faces that returned, I thought I could detect a look of new hope — of new determination. Soon after our return, by noticing the grave looks and catching pieces from conversa- tion among the old bo3 ' s, we began to have a vague idea of some great impending danger. Our suspense was not long because it was soon made known that the semi-annual examinations were a few weeks off Great was the commotion and many the determination to get down to hard work; how many of these were kept I would not like to say, but our class came through with but few failures, most of which could be traced to the idol of the class — mathematics . In my little record I have failed to mention the Military Department, which is managed by a com- petent Commandant and Senior Class. The battalion is composed of three companies. Each company is quartered in its resjjective hall. Our class is about equally distributed among the three companies, so I will not make special remarks about any one because of the feeling it may cause. Now, classmates, let us join hand and hand and, with the ambition of Csesar, march steadil} ' and surelv on, not ovAy to the end of our college course, l)Ut to the end of life.

The Military De|)artment ■ I ' HE status of the Military Department of the ■ ' ■ College has been especially gratifying during the present session. The change in the manage- ment of the department, which was necessitated by the withdrawal from the College of the officer of the United States Army, formerly detailed for this duty, and which produced such excellent results dur- ing the session of 1898- ' 99, has been continued with certain modifications during the past year. Mr. J. Hanson Mitchell, of the Class of ' 98, who, as Major commanding the Battalion, served as Acting Commandant of Cadets during the latter months of the session of 1897- ' 98, was appointed Commandant of Cadets by the Board of Trustees of the College in November, 1899. Under the present system the Com- mandant is in charge of the discipline and general man- agement of the Military Department in all of its branches, and he resides in the barracks. The details, however, are controlled by the Senior officers of the Battalion. Each of the three cadet captains is placed in charge of the dormitory hall on which his company is quar- tered. As the Officer-of-the-Hall he is responsible for the discipline of his company, and the order and cleanliness of the cadet quarters. He drills his com- pany and, in the school of the company, officiates as instructor to his company in militarj ' science and tactics. The Cadet Major exercises a general supervision over matters pertaining to all of the companies. He drills the battalion, marches it to meals, and is in command at all battalion formations. Daily reports of breaches of discipline or of improper condition of of the cadet quarters and dormitory ' halls are made to the Commandant by the cadet captains and the Offi- cer-of-the Daj The latter is a cadet officer detailed for a tour of duty lasting twenty-four hours, whose duty it is to see that all calls are sounded on time ; to superintend all military formations, and to have general charge of discipline during his tour of duty. 67 His authority is second onlj ' to that of the Command- ant. The Commandant, by personal inspections of quarters and of the arms and equipment, supplements the activity of the commissioned officers in maintain- ing order and discipline. The line of demarcation of the duties of each of the foregoing officers is strictlj ' drawn, and the responsi- bility of each within his jurisdiction is explicit. The result is apparent in the excellent order maintained in the barracks during study hour and in the jirompt- ness with which violations of the law and breaches of discipline are reported and punished. The morale of the battalion was never better than at present, and this fact is conclusive proof that in military, as in civil matters, a strict definition of responsibility is necessarj ' to good government. The effect of the system upon the student is very great and very beneficial. His responsibilities tend to develop in him those qualities of mind requisite to thoughtful, earnest, conscientious manhood. 6S ( »aw- Staff. ft ■Mil Major A. S. R. Cuason. Isr.

TN discussing athletics for the fourth volume of our • ■ Reveille, I will not cite the careers of our teams from the introduction of athletics as a department of the College, but will take it up only during the sea- sons of ' 99 and ' 00. The base ball season opened with a most brilliant prospect, and our chances for landing the banner once more in our College were very bright. Among the new plaj-ers who joined us were: Massey, who at first base, by his excellent batting and brilliant playing, soon won the reputation of being the best man for that position the College has ever had: Reuhr, who represented us as jiitcher; Wolf as short stop, and Shanklin as third baseman, deser e credit for their brilliant plajnng. With Devon captain and catcher; Reuhr and Sappington pitchers ; Massey first base : Cameron second base : Wolf short stop : Shanklin third base ; Price left field; Grason centre field; Mitchell right field, we plaj-ed our first game with Baltimore City College, in which we won a decided victory. After this we played a number of games with minor teams which were easilv won. The first league game was played with Gallaudet on our grounds. It was verj ' interesting and excit- ing; in the eighth inning it was necessarj- to call the game on account of darkness when Gallaudet was one run in the lead, thus Maryland Agricultural College suffered a sad defeat. The second league game was played with Western Maryland College at College Park. Western Mary- land took the lead from the beginning, and the game seemed as if it were lost, until in the eigth inning, when Maryland Agricultural College with three men on bases, Devon hit for one of his famous home runs, thus making the score five to four in Maryland Agri- cultural College ' s favor. In the ninth the score was not changed. Had it not been for the excellent batting of Captain Devon probably the game would have been lost. The third league game was played with St. John ' s College on their grounds. This game was an easy victory for Maryland Agricultural College, winning t)y a large score. 81 The fourth league game was played with Johns Hopkins University at Baltimore. This game was a most interesting and closely contested one, both sides being evenly matched. Maryland Agricultural Col- lege by her hard and steady playing finall) ' won in the tenth inning by a score of five to four. Gallaudet and Maryland Agricultural College hav- ing tied for the championship, each having lost one game, it was necessary to play another one to decide it. In the meantime our team was very much weak- ened by losing three of her best and most vital play- ers. Nevertheless we did not lose courage, but kept on with the same determination. The deciding game was arranged to be played at Washington on the 10th of June. Both teams ap- peared on the Georgetown field, and after having played only two innings the game was called on account of rain, with the score 2 to in our favor. Again we were compelled to face Gallaudet. The game was played on the 15th of June. Gallaudet winning the honors. No little credit is due Mr. Sappington who filled the place of the pitcher whom we had lost. Although not having won the championship, we were consoled by the thought of the excellent showing we had made. To our looking over and description of the record of base ball at Maryland Agricultural College I do not consider it necessary to say one redeeming word for this department of college athletics. It speaks for itself, and that most eloquently; anything that I might say would not add in the least to it. So leav- ing base ball let us now call your attention to foot ball. It is a source of deep regret to us that our foot ball record has not been as brilliant as that of base ball ; and yet it is a source of consolation to us to know that it was not a lack of spirit and interest as shown by the students, but a want of support, which should have been rendered b} ' those who had it in their power. Since it has generally become the idea that, in order to develop a successful and winning team, it is necessary to be under the instruction and guid- ance of a competent coach, and that the captain, no matter how able a man, cannot properly control the men, and at the same time originate and study new plans and ideas. Here we have been neglected; if this had been properly attended to probably we would have won glory on more than one battlefield where we were forced to accept defeat. Our team each year being composed of a number of new students who have never played foot ball, it is very difficult to de- velop a winning team by the knowledge which one student transfers to another. Though a great deal of knowledge is to be gained from a study of the history of the great players of the game and from the exper- ience of others, the principals are changing, and this makes the old ideas unapplicable. What were once up-to-date ideas soon pass into history before we get 82 BASE BALL TEAM. a chance to apply them. The only remedy is to pro- cure a competent coach who will originate and apply new ideas before thej go down upon the innumerable pages of historj ' . The need of a coach was never more apparent than in the last season, when, with the best of material and the hardest labor on the part of the captain and other members of the team, we had only to accept defeat, wholly and entirely on account of the absence of a coach. L,et us hope that before another rolls around the Faculty and Trustees will have taken this in hand and then we will be able to compete most favorably with our neighboring colleges. We were very much pleased with last year ' s track team, which made a most creditable showing at the field day exercises held at Annapolis ; and regret very much the loss of Mr. Gait, who was one of the most successful contestants, winning the following events: Hundred Yard Dash, Two Hundred and Twenty Yard Dash, Running High Jumji and Run- ning Broad Jump. Up to last year very little attention had been ]Hiid to tennis owing to the fact of there being no outside competition. But now as we have two fine courts a great deal of interest has sprung up. The base ball team which will represent us this Spring is now hard at work upon the field. Although oulj ' a few of last year ' s team having returned, we find among the new students some very good material, and judging from the practice and few games which have been played we can only predict a very success- ful season. The track team is now being put under a severe course of training under the supervision of Captain Weigand. Mr. Talbott has been elected Manager of the tennis team, and who will no doubt develo]) a successful one. Before closing it seems necessarj to say a few words explaining whj ' Marj-land Agricultural College drew out of the Intercollegiate. Two j ears ago our team having won the Intercollegiate banner, and last year being defeated onlj- by Gallaudet, whom the league has alreadj ' disposed of, this year a blow was aimed at us bj ' which a number of our plaj ' ers were disqualified, while ]ilayers on other teams were allowed to plaj- under the same conditions by which ours were disqualif ied. And rather than to be ruled and dictated to by one member of the league, as two of the other members are, we decided it best to with- draw. Ragged strength aii l radiant Ijeauty These were one in Nature ' s plan; Hnnible toil and heavenward duty, These will form the perfect man. S4 Base Ball Team of 1900.

WHAT a fountain is to the desert, what a ]iath is to the wilderness, what beauty is to the rose, what the soul is to the body, is the relation the all- powerful, irresistable claim the Rossbourg Club as- serts among its co-associations at Maryland Agricul- tural College. Its influence is overwhelming, its predominance without question. And wh}- ? The answer can easily be felt by all who have anj- con- ception of the sublimity of thought that is inspired when environments is composed of those aesthetic elements — music, flowers and prettj- girls. I say it is felt by them ; but who can describe those feelings? The most learned and jirofound psj ' chologist will find difficulty in undertaking such a task. May blessings without end be showered upon the thoughtful and far-seeing promoters of social acquire- ments, who, iiearl}- a decade ago, organized the fac- tor of our beloved and long endeared Alma Mater. They have organized an institution as durable and as lasting as humanity itself. They have founded an association that has grown and flourished under the guidance of those who have been most fit to accomp- lish the work. It has flourished in all directions that its functions lead into. Its elevating influence u])oii the general morale of the students is astonishingh ' noticeable This can oiil - be accounted for by pointing to that resistless charm existing between two beings endowed with minds and souls that are capable of conceiving in each other a force of attraction of so high potential that it needs but the gentle touch of social intercourse to transform it into the most active force that pro- motes love, life, libertj ' and the pursuit of happiness. It is not in vain that two beings of exactly opposite natures are thus brought into contact with each other; the one strong in will jjower, strong in body, but 93 with the ever vulneral)le point — the heart ; the other with a gentle, tender, amiable disposition, j-et armed with all the requisites for a conquest — the killing smile, the sweet voice, and the fascinating glance. This species of warfare is the one and onh- one that is ever intercepted in its onward course, a course that could not be blocked by all the armies of the world. It is not then a vain dream that impels the Col- lege authorities to c oncentrate their interest and sup- port more to this vital branch of our institution than anj ' other except the mental Man is a social being, and as such he must move in obedience to certain fixed laws, which force themselves upon him as long as he has a mind capable of com]irehending the necessities to be complied with in order that he may be hai)p3 ' and make some one else share his hajipiness. What better opportunities are presented to man in the furtherance of his social attaiiunents than those afforded bj ' the Terpsichorean art. The devotees of this much-worshipped Muse are never at a loss for enjoyment, never at a loss for entertainment, nor a means of social intercourse. Accordingly we have extended to us most ample facilities for improving ourselves in the milder capacities, and needless to sa},-, the opportunities are only too gladly grasped. Dancing is the means of enjoyment which the Rossbourg Club provides, and anyone who has ever attended a dance at Maryland Agricultural College will surely crave to attend another. And why ? It is because the motive is imbued with the proper spirit, it is because no one is afraid to lend a hand in preparation, it is because everj ' one is striving to make someone else happ} ' . With what joy and exj ectation do we await these approaching carnivals. How many faces are abeam with a radiance that is not seen on ordinary occasions. . nd the dancing has now begun, . nd the dancers whirl gayly around In the waltzes giddy mazes. And the ground beneath them trembles. What a glorious spectacle ! The youth and beauty of the State have assembled at Marj-land Agriculural College. ' Tis night; yes, and how hearts are throb- lung and liumping awaj ' as if to tear awaj ' from the tendons that bind them. Look in the faces of those who are assembled. What is written there? One thing is certain ; none have brought their cares with them ; the}- were left at home, like the everj ' -day working garb, and as the ball dress was donned, new hopes rose high and jo} was Ijorn anew in the soul. So great is the jiower of jo -ful anticipation that even the most inclement weather has no apjireciable effect u])on the large attendance. The dancers are dancing and taking no rest, And closely their hands together are pressed, And soon as a dance has come to a close, -Vnother begins and each merrily goes. Under such conditions who can help but be charmed by his environments. Single out a couple that seem 94 enraptured, whose souls are bound u in each other. Watch the graceful, wave-like motions thej ' describe in the mazes of some dreamj ' waltz. But oh! she dances such a way No Sun on Easter day Is half so fine a sight. ' Tis thus we receive our moral training. The sub- limity of thought that is instilled in us is Ijeyond description. Who then, will gainsay the dance as a moralizer ? No one who has ever enjoyed a dance at Marj-land Agricultural College will dispute its superiority in all respects. The music we have furnished is excellent, the decorations tasteful, the floor second onh ' to per- fection, reception adequately provided for; these with pleasant weather comprise a jierfect condition for a successful dance. With the increasing poi)ularity of our College dances grows in proportion the necessity of a new and larger ball room. And we do not doubt for a moment that, in a few years, when we visit Maryland Agricultural College, we may see a most valuable addition to the present grouji of buildings — an armory and a reception hall. Never before has the Rossbourg Club flourished as this year. We have been able to give dances each month throughout the entire j ' ear. The membership was never so high, and interest was never so lively. May it ever be thus, with increased possibilities, is the earnest and sincere wish of the Class of 1900. 95 Officers.— first Term.

I HE New Mercer Literary Societj ' was first or- ■■■ ganized in 1861 liy Dr. William N. Mercer of New Orleans, through whose energy it became a ])owerfuI factor in the literary department of the College. He presented the society with a large collection of valuable books, and it was these that formed the nucelus of our jiresent College Library. Enthusiasm in the literary work of the College began gradualh ' to decline after the death of this illustrious man, and in the year 1889, the Society- ceased to exist. From 1889 to 1892 there was no or- ganization of this kind in the College, but in the year 1892, the need of a literary organization being very much felt. Professor F. B. Bomberger, then a student of the College, reorganized the New Mercer Literary Societ} ' , and was elected as its first president. Through the efforts of Professor Bomberger the organization was brought up to its former standard, and continued as such ' until the year 1894. From 1894 to 1897 the New Mercer found its existence in a number of bodies modeled after it. First there was the House of Com- mons — an imitation of the English House of Com- mons. Then the Morrill Societ} ' came into existence; the Spencerian Society, of the Sophomores : and the Calvert Society of the Freshmen. Each of these in its turn had a goodly number of members, and served as a great factor in the development of literary work. The Class of ' 97 conceived the idea of reorganizing the New Mercer Society once more. Mr. William S. Weedon was elected president, and to him and the class much credit is due for establishing it on a firm basis. liver increasing, it has continued to the jires- ent time, and is now looked upon as one of the most interesting and jirofitable organizations of the College. It furnished the principal orator, Mr. H. J. Kefau- ver, as well as the alternate, Mr. W. H. Weigand, to 97 represent the Maryland Agricnltural College in the Oratorical Contest of Maryland Colleges held at Westminster in April, 1899, and came out with second honors. It again furnished the alternate orator, Mr. H. J. Kefauver, for the contest held at Annapolis in April, 1900. During the past year it has made rapid progress in literary work under the supervision of Mr. Kefauver as its president, and has some good material to uphold its standing in the ])ublic meeting to be held in June. May the New Mercer I iterary Societj ' continue to increase in membershi]i and be a potent factor in the advancement of College work. This can be done, and will be done if each succeeding class lends its time and energy in aiding it, as they have done in the past. 98 The MIorrill Literary Society.

" Lea.rning has its infancy zvhen if is almost childish: then, its youth •mhen luxurious and ju ' benile: then, its strength of years, •when solid; and lastly, its old age. ' when dry and exhausted. " ' T ' HE Murrill Literary Society was first organized ' ■ in 1894 through the efforts of Professor R. H. Alvey. Its first president was Dr. Sothoni Key, of the Chxss of ' 94. and its first secretarj- was M. L. McCandlish, of the Class of ' 95. It was named after the late Senator Morrill, the great advocate of the establishment of Agricultural Colleges throughout the United States. The princi])al feature of this organization when first established was a weekly address or lecture by some member of the College Facult - on some subject of the da}-, and the regular debates which were held everj- Friday evening. Among the members of the Facidty aiding it in its work were. Professors Alvey, Taliaferro and Kobin- son. Howe ' er, one year ' s existence sufficed, for it was soon absorbed by the other literary organizations of the College. During the session of 1S99-1900, the Morrill Society was reorganized out of the Xew Mercer Societ -, through the efforts of Mr. H. J. Kefanver, President of the New Mercer, with Mr. W. H. W ' eigand as its first president. It was clearly shown during the jiast few years, that in order to have jierfect Hterarj work there must be competition, and it was to afford this that the bod}- was reorganized. It is needless to say that if the Societ} progresses in the future as rapidly as it has in the past year, under the guiding hand of .Mr. Weigand, the literary side of the College course will be greatly benefitted tn- its activity. For competition with the New Mercer will create an interest among the student body in lit- erary matters never reached heretofore. This Society furnishes the principal orator, Mr. S. M. Peach, to represent the Maryland Agricultural College in the Oratorical contest of Maryland Colleges, to be held at Annapolis in April, 1900. And as most of its men were members of the New Mercer Literary Society last year, it should make an excellent showing in the contest in June. Although it has had but one year of existence, it is doing well; and now, fellow students, is the the time to aid it by giving your time and attention to the work. As it is the duty of some of the members of onr succeeding classes to aid the New Mercer, so it is the dut - of other meml)ers to loud a hel]iing hand to the Morrill Literary Society. 101 Officer .

Beware, Le t Ye Be TramJ led IJ|)on! A ND it came to pass in those days, that there were ■ ■ in the land a multitude of men both strong of arm and fleet of foot. And these mighty men did assemble and strongly prevailed upon the wise men of the temples of wisdom that they form a league in which the strong might measure their strength in divers ways and in a friendly manner; and that the swift of foot might run in divers races against each other. And the wise men of the temples did listen to their jilea and straightway did take counsel among them- selves, and thought it wise to permit the youths of the land to assemble together and strive against one another for mastery. And it came to jiass that heralds were sent out over all the land proclaiming to the people that on a cer- tain day there would take place a meeting to which the several temjiles of wisdom would send delegates to take part in the deliljerations thereof. The day did aiijiear and there gathered together a large assemblage of the most wise; and learned men of the land did meet and did take counsel among themselves as to the forming of the league and the expediencj ' thereof. And they did make speeches both for and against their project. And in the course of their deliberations they did hit upon an idea, which wasto form an " Intercollegiate Athletic Association, " of which the object was to improve in many ways the physical education of the 5 outh of the land, bj ' con- tending in a friendly rivalry with their neighbors, and to inspire in them a desire for glory to be achieved in i roving themselves masters of divers sports. And it was also decreed by these sages that prizes of great value should be awarded him who should be the most fleet of foot, and thereby excel in the race; and to him who might prove him.self strongest of arm and hurl heavy weights fartherest. And it was likewise decreed that the temple producing the body of men most skilled in the various games of ball should re- ceive a pennant, which should show forth unto all the world that these men did vanquish all their foes and that glory and honor was theirs, world without end. 119 And the men that were .stroiig; of Ixjdy and swift of foot did greatly rejoice among themselves that this league had been formed, and did take courage and trained most diligentlj ' for the games that were to take place in that mighty city of Baltimore. And the men that were skilled in handling the ball and bat did give themselves much ]iractice at home and abroad, and did meet each other in friendly games And it finally came to pass that there ajipeared two strong teams on the Maryland Agricultural College diamond, the famous mutes of " Gallaudet College and the team of that most sacred and beloved place, MarNdand Agri- cultural College. " The day waxed warm, as did those of the eager jila -ers, and exciting times were witnessed bj- all who were near. And the might} ' men of Maryland Agricultural College strove hard and did overcome their adversar- ies, thereby making the first pennant theirs. And the men of the various temples did wax sore because the " farmers " of Maryland Agricultural College came out heroes of the struggle and did con- jure a plan to prevent it in future seasons. And it came to ])ass that on a later date there met, in that great city of Baltimore as man} ' of these ath- letes as could assemble. And it so happened that there appeared men from other lands who did strive in the games, and they men of large stature and great agility, and did outstrip their adversaries in all events. Then did the wise men hold counsel and did deem it unjust to allow the .strong men that were trained in other lands to strive against the less ex]ierienced in our own land. And they did decree that none such should be permitted to participate in the games. And this decree did most sorelj ' offend the strong men of Johns Hopkins Universitj ' and they did make known their minds in divers ways, and did kick vic- iously against the decree of the wise men of the other temples, but it availed them nothing. And it so hajipened that the Hopkinsouians, then famous, did lose much in the way of athletic victories because they could no more enter their imjiorted ath- letes, and they did feel the disgrace keenly. And a certain plan, the like of which yet remains iniheard of in all the earth, dawned upon them. The J ' did deem it necessary for their own glor}-, to concoct a scheme wherebj ' they might better their own condition ; for they did see that their glor - would be grouiul in the dust and feared lest they themselves might be ground into dust as well, because the powerful men of Marjdand Agricultural College were making it exceedingly hot for them and the yoke did weigh heavy on their necks. Whereupon they did assemble and meet together and did abandon the league that had flourished and ])rospered so gloriously under the old rule, and did form another league in which the most learned and skilled geniuses of the famed Hopkins did formulate 120 rules to suit their own convenience. " And it proved to be verj ' distressing for Maryland Agricultural College, and she did sorely resent this unfair treat- ment thus thrust upon them, but they said nothing and bore their grievances in a far more manly spirit than did their co associates in their time of trouble. And it came to pass that the far-seeing and schem- ing rulers at Hopkins did gather together from dis- tant lands men much skilled in all sports. And they did wipe up the earth with the men of the smaller temples and did rejoice greatlj-. And they did think that they held all the tem]iles under their thumb and could do with them as thej choose at all times. Thus did Ho]ikins think unto herself. But alas! for the league that had been formed In- one alone, could not be held by one alone, for on a certain day all the wise men did assemble and meet together and tlid hold a consultation regarding the league, and its l)igoted rulers of the great temple did fiuther tr ' to ]iress their thumb u]ion the sturdy " farmers " and did attempt to prevent many of their number, skilled as they were and given to most faith- ful training, from taking a hand in the games. But lo, the " farmers " were not a set to be imposed u])on or dictated to by others ; but resenting this most unjust treatment at the hands of their co-associates, did take counsel among themselves and manj- and eloquent were the speeches made during the course of this meeting. And the multitude with one accord shouted aloud, " Away with the league! Away with it! " And away it went. Thus occurred the beginning of the disasterous downfall of the Maryland Intercollegiate League. Howbeit that the mighty men of the most high temple of wisdom are afraid to strive against the stal- wart sons of the soil in that most interesting sport — " Base ball.

Come, list to me boys, And I ' ll tell of a noise — ' Twoulcl be better to term it a rucket. It was caused by a dog. And as a result of this fog The whole college turned nut to attack it. IV. II. This innocent pup Came silently u]) The front steps into the hall ; Hut ' twas soon whispered out, We will soon put him to rout With minus no fun for us all. III. We are aware of it, all, That on the top hall There rooms one of those frolicsome lioys, Whose main occupation Is to find recreation In makini; every conceivable noise. To him be the credit. For no doubt he did it, For giving this dog his new outfit. It was merely a tin can Fixed to drag as he ran . nd cause a great tumult when he " ■ utlit ' VI. For when once set free. So wild in his glee. He made a wild bound for the landing, But soon this pup found On looking around, His tail most woefully expanding. VIII. From landing to stair He leaped like a hare, . nd .sped with the speed of a horse. He was not once retarded. But one thing was regarded ; — He was impelled by an unseen force. One can easy surmise What a great surprise This small combination evoked. For those stiidiniis boys - roused by the noise Seemed not in the least provoked. VII. ' Twas then came the fun. For the faster he ' d run The more terrific would grow the racket Now a sing, sang, clang, Then a swam — bim, bang, .And a clickily. clackity, clackit. IX. He was soon gobbled up. This miserable pup, . nd served as befitted his rank; He ' s caused many to remember. Since that day in December. We ' re capable of " most any old prank.

No account need be taken of the energy used up in causing the noise accompanying the experiment, as this is usually a small (?) quantity. The initial acceleration being a twist of the cat ' s tail. Mr. Hines states that practical applications of this problem are used in our every- day life, and that, in his opinion, everyone should familiarize himself with the prin- ciples involved. 130 8ome Dining Room 8tati»tic .

He sout;ht among the smaller boys Till one at last he found; He filled a bath-tub full of water. So ' twouldn ' t run a-gr " und. Then down pretty sat and watchei Sail on the briny deep; He longed to be a sailor lad. And wild his heart did leap. 13.1 I 0) o I o H o o o TJ I w o r U) (A s H n (A n z H - 3 O r O O z o H R The Tright of " Big Czeckiel. ' On a wintry night in bleak December When the snow lay deep on the ground , There occurred an incident which we all remember ; Not a sound could be heard around Save the steady snore of peaceful slumber Of those wrapped in dreams profound. II. It had at the time been the neighborhood ' s fate To have ghastly ghosts appear; But he of whom we ' re about to relate Had declared that he had no fear; But he proved not so steady in his crimson pate In the ab.scence of his room-mate so dear. III. It was late at night as we ' ve already said, But some mischief was quietly brooding; Some Company " B " privates had crept out of bed . nd were through the halls stealthily moving. In frightful disguise all excited they s]K ' d Till they were on their poor victim intending. IV. As he lay there in bed so peacefully dreaming With no idea of what was in store, These hideous phantoms came one by one streaming, Not alone wrapped in sheets, but far more, They were all in a glow with phosphorous gleaming With a ghost in their midst stuffed with straw. V. Not a moment was lost, but at once they proceeded To complete their wild plans for the scare; But when having accomplished this task all unheeded They had not one second to spare; So with horrible groans they quickly receded Leaving one awful monster still there. VI. Big " Ezeckiel " sat straight up in bed. And cried, " I don ' t like this fooling. " He shivered and shook till the hair on his head. Though naturally red, turned white on cooling. And lying there till morning, so inspired with dread, " Sir Moses " could not get his nerves under ruling. 135 Qui e»t. There is a man, who. according to statistics, Gleaned from reliable sources. Is skilled in multiple classical mystics, Among which is riding horses. As an Jl. A. C. man he ' s enthusiastic, For its welfare he ' .s in the van; But with the ladies (not to be sarcastic) They say he ' s " a heavy man. " His record perhaps would be of interest to all. So here I think I ' ll jot it. And if by chance on any his wrath should fall. Much, much in the neck he ' s g. )t it. l " or the past three years he ' s been docile enough. I guess he was then saving up His energies, for now he ' s quite as rough As Micky O ' FIanigan ' s pup. Scarcely had he arrived at the College last Fall — Was made a Senior with dignity ; He rushed to the Ville on the ladies to call. He sure, was above malignity. To the city he went ne.xt on the wings of a dove. One day in sable October; . nd from the intoxication of his lady love lie hasn ' t yet gotten sober. We gave a dance not very long after. Our " Bill " was right in the push; The hall re-echoed with peals of laughter, . nd he was ace-high flush. To the foot ball games he did report. Much bigger than ever before; Escorting the ladies to the field of sport . " Vnd furnishing them the score. A rambunktious lad he ' s getting to be — He ' s holding his heail pretty high. With one end to windward and t ' other to lee . nd his nose points up to the sky. When Christinas came round he sped away home. By way of Chesapeake Beach; Thinking some Baltimore girls that way would come But vainly his rubber did reach. On Valentine day there was lots of joy, He got what he least expected ; She sent him a beauty (?) and the racking boy Has never her yet detected. To the city of Baltimore he one day went Tho ' not 1) - himself alone; Fine carriages, the theatre, a big diimer lent To the dav ' s harmonious tone. 136 Qui c t.— Continued. lie ' s an anient lover of Lownev ' s confections, Buys up boxes by the score; To finfl where they go I can ' t make connections. But their going is ilisputed no more. Ihit he ' s the man — the man of the Collt-.i ways are wondrous wise ; His head is piled up full of knowledge. And it beams from (uit liis c-ves. How be it now that he ' s taming down — The colt at last is broke; But remember that he once had renown And many words he spoke. £- 41 l. i l i» IS («! 1 «S- _? ««S! $ 3: ' ' = ' " S 137 statistic .

" n. AVc could not hope a work of fame To place before the world; Glance lightly critic; he humane. I ' or man our banner ' s furled. 147 OUR WORK on the 1900 REVEILLE is now finished. Its preparation has been to us a source of much ]ileasure as well as an experience such as we never had. None can realize but those who have lieen tlirough the toils of an editor, what unceasing lal)or is retiuired in the pnl)lication of an animal. This year some innovations have lieen made in the plan of the Reveille, and it is ho])ed the ' will be received favorably. This book we consider the crown of our monu- ment built at the Maryland Ag-ricnltural College. Its success depends alone ujion the efforts of the class rejiresentatives — the editors. We wish to extend our thanks to those who have aided us in our work. We acknowledge our indebtedness to Dr. Townsend for his excellent article on " Some Advances in Science Teaching. " To Professor Bomberger we owe man} ' changes in composition and rhetoric, and suggestions that have been carried out to advantage. The i art of the Rr:vEi],Li-: that is second to none in im])()rtance is the illustration. For the sketches, we have been dc]K-n(leut u])ou Mr. K. II. Butler, a former member of the Class of 1900, who has grac- iously gi ' en us, in his best talent, many valuable sketches; to Miss C. C. Ward of New York we are greatly indebted for her 1 eautiful sketches. It is with great pleasure that we award each a copy of the Ri ' :vEiLLE as a slight token of our a])i)reciation of their work. Our humorous column is the condensed form of the iinuunerable, ridicrdous and extremely humorous happenings that have taken ]ilace from time to time during the } ' ear. It determines the success of editor- ial efforts. We have endeavored to make it im])artial, indiscriminating and hitting all alike. No doubt some may think they have had more than their share, but as we have stated, we have tried to favor no one more than another. With these words we resign our claim upon j ' our attention and wish j-ou many pleasant moments in persuing these pages, with a desire that they maj- be continued in REVEILLES that follow.
