" That yotmg fellow addressing the Commandant is the class sage — Henry Peck Ames — better known as " Pete " or " Peter. " Pete first decided to try this life on October 29, 1890, in that distant town of Oberlin, ( )hio. Yes, H. P. claims this as his home town, al- thongh we can hardly see whv. He started on his ])ursnit of knowledge in Henrico Coimtv School, ' a., where he proceeded to learn the three R " s. Xo, this school was not named for our friend — he moved too (|uickly for that. In the year of 1899, -we find that Pete has chased knowledge all the way to Long Lsland. Here he entered the county school in Sus- sex County. At last the great day of his life .ar- rived. ( )ne warm day in September, 1907, Pete made his del)ut in our midst. , Pete is the life of our class. On more than one occasion he has saved us all from falling asleep in l ommy ' s class, by setting forth some timely argument that has overthrown one of our Prof ' s pet theories. From the depths of our heart we thank vou, Pete. Although given to farming, he goes in for rifle practice. He has done well at this, as his medals will show. Yes, there he is now with that box of keys in his hand. Notice that marksman pin on his coat? He is on his way now ' to open the armory. Late, did you say? Small matter; we have three-quarters of an hour for drill, you know. Pete is the original ladies ' man now. Do you ever walk down the pike on Sunday in the direction of Berwyn? That straight young fellow coming down the road swinging a cane is our esteemed young friend. I wonder where he has been? Pete has a failing for agricultural work, and expects soon to go back to the farm. We wish you luck, Pete. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 15 Baltimore, Aid. Lii-:l ' teNx .nt L. BlankiMAn, Company B Civil Eno ' ineering " Senior Year, Associate Business Manager " Reveille. " " AiNTADORE. " Pardon me, please. This specimen is blessed, .and life is one blessed thing after another to him. Me. we mean Aintadore, thinks he knows it all, for when not arguing ' with Doc. Tolly about calculus or mechanics, he is seen discussing engineering prob- lems of great imjiortance, at Cats ' private emporium. In his rat year ( and thank heav- ens this was only last year ) Leo ' s nickname, which is still a mystery, did not appeal to us so he was chris- tened Aintadore, being a brother of Isadore. Since his existence at M. A. C. Ainty, technical information bureau, checker and advice giver has become assistant to Doc. Tolly in French ( ?). Doc. feels so gratified for Aintadore ' s assistance that he re- fused to excuse him from h ench classes after Leo thought he success- fully convinced Doc. that he knew French. As a military man (?) he has no peer. He was so advanced in tactics .and argued to such an ex- tent with the Big Chief concerning the various objects of military science that he finally made up his mind to divorce Major Dai:)ray consisted in not wearing a uniform and less drill. Ainty ' s chief attraction is his neatness. He shaves once every week, whether he needs it or not. His evening dress, with which he favored the entire com- munity between Riverdale and the Park, made many a dyed-in-wool sport go green with envy. Why he even washed, alone, his corduroys (once upon a time) and made them all wake up and take notice. Of his prospects as an engineer, we can hardly guess. He contemplates for his first big job that of .a blue print boy, stake carrier or some other equally res- ponsible position, such as Chief Engineer (janitor) of the Maryland Agricultural College. In conclusion permit us to say that Ainty is a jack-of-all trades. He shaves himself, presses his clothes alone, takes .a promine nt part in social affairs and be- lieves that women should be permitted to vote. His main ara ' uments 16 THE 1913 REVEILLE Lieutenant Samuel W. Blankman, Company B Baltimore, ] Id. Civil Engineering Junior Year, Associate Biusiness Manager " Triangle; " Senior Year, Business Mana- ger " Reveille, " General Newspaper Correspondent. " Isadore ' On this page we beg to present the Business Editor (Manager) of this book. He is no other than Caruso, Sammy, Isadore, Sol and $$$$. Take a glance at the cut. Does he not possess a handsome countenance ? Observe his piercing eyes. Apollo at last has his rival. Since his arrival from the Cr of the Chaldees, " Issy " has bewildered the world with his shrewdness and lousiness acumen. Just before this book went to press it was rumored that the beloved bru- nette been tendered a lucrative position as manager of a powerful enterprise, which he rejected ( ?) be- cause of his love for engineering. Yes, Sammy is a student. The eight languages which he studied are now .a fond recollection and dream, for often did we hear this lovelight " spiel " something ' ( ?), undoubtedly ef- fecting the auditory nerves of Profs. Spence and Taliaferro. As an engi- neer we must confess Issy has a bright future before him. His new method of mastering descriptive geometry is patented, and Samm - is l)usy exposing it to the ambitious. A report is circulated that Issy is at last in love. When? How? Who is a mystery ; but it is a fact. Some fair damsel seemed to have won his heart, and we may see him at any time sling a little ink to the fair one from ( ?) ( ?) To be just we must say that Issy is some singer. Often his sweet tenor voice entertained some few distinguished guests and about a dozen music con- cerns are now bidding for his services and the wond ' erful freak of a song ])oem which he recently composed. Caruso (Enrico), Mendelssohn, beware. " Love Me and the World Is Mine " and " Lead Kindly Light " are his favorites. ] S. — We neglected to mention that, despite his age and beauty, Sammy tips the scales at 187, and he is now very busy in i)reparation for his trip to Hot Springs. Here ' s luck to you, boy. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 17 Captain Milton Ernest Davis, Company A.. Civil Engineering Baltimore, Md. Historian, Freshman Year.

Sergeant-at-Arms of Class; President of Rossbourg Club; Editor " Triangle; " President, June Ball Committee; Social Editor, " Reveille; " Manager, Football Team; Senior Year. " Peck. " This visage which greets you is none other than Milton Ernest, alias " Peck " Davis. It could be no other. Peck is the dyed-in-the-wool married man of the class (almost). Peck announced his existence l)y a lusty howl in 1892, and proceeded to develop his lungs with such howls as " Papa make an elephant mit a shizel " and " a bo — ot, P,a — pa. " He learned to read, and specially to write, at City College, and still holds a fond love for his previous alma mater. He then migrated to M. A. C. in 1909. As a society man, Ernest seems to drift during his first two years, but on July 6, 1911, Dan Cupid drove his magic dart home, and ever since then Uncle Sam has had a steadv customer on the mail trains, both coming and going to Roland Avenue, near the city line of Baltimore. He is Doc. Tolly ' s favorite, having been elected by him as assistant dean, due to Peck ' s wonderful ability to " spiel " formulas and make high grades on exams., in some of which lie has made as much as 584. As an athlete, his one shining light is lacrosse, having been a regular member of the Varsity team for four years. Peck has been a favorite ever since his arrival here. One can see by the numerous offices he has held that he is very popular, and as a Soph he was an ardent wielder of the hickory, while his present address is Elm Avenue. In the future Baltimore, Md., holds out inducements, matrimonial or otherwise, and Ernest expects to hie him thither and settle down, but we would suggest that he remain single and settle up. 18 THE 1913 REVEILLE Lieutenant Ralph Scott Healy, Company A New York, N. Y. Electrical Engineering Sergeant, Junior Year; President, Engineering Society; Class Prophet; Humorous Editor " Reveille; " Senior Year. " Pink ' " Wotcher t ' ink dis is, eh? " Such may be heard issuing from the physiog. of our esteemed Pink. Pink ! Oh, yes, I forgot to state that our friend with the military bearing and Napoleonic figure — yes, it ' s Na- poleonic, but hard to notice — has a growth of wonderful pink locks. He hates to be joked, however, about that black spot a la " Silver Threads Among the Gold. " Pink intends to join the army ; in fact, he has been hanging around the " Fort " for these four years, and — oh, what ' s the use? In his rat year someone described him as " the fellow with the you-be-damned atti- tude. " Let us not be convinced that such is the case. Its only this atti- tude upon special and rare occasions, such as having tent pegs pulled out from under one ' s tent, etc. R. S. H., while with us here, has gained quite a rep. as a wit — to wit : " How many of youse are up there? " " Three. " " Well, half of youse come down. " Some call this wit. " Oh, what crimes are committed in thy name? " Pink ' s one great stunt is argumentation. Ask Nitz. Why Burke, Pitt and Webster had nothing on him. Such great questions as " How far is Hyatts- ville from College Park? " and " Why is (Tommy ' s cape? " have been held down with Ciceronian skill. Pink, by the w,ay, is an Electrical Engineer. Ain ' t he classy? And what ' s more, he intends copping that medal. Nothing to it, old boy. But what is all this flurry and commotion about? Why, it ' s only Pink rushing through his exams, so that the 11.30 from Washington to Broadway will be honored with his presence. When it comes to catching trains. Pink takes the belt. Here ' s looking at you, Pink, old boy. May success ever greet you in life as it has done at dear old M. A. C. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 19 Westminster, Md. Lieutenant William B. Hull Sophomore Year, Corporal; Junior Year, Sergeant. " Bill ' Act I, scene i, railroad station, Westminster; Time, Fall of 1908. " Goodbye, Willie " " ; " So long. Bill ; " " " Take care of yonrself, William; " ' " Write soon, Billy. " As these remarks were being firecl at the Honorable W. B. by sad maid- ens, the morning train, only one hour and forty-three minutes late, was slowly pulling out of the station. Yes — that tanned youth sitting in the rear seat and so absorbed in the paper is our friend. But watch ! The cause of interest in the paper ap- proaches and taps him on the shoulder. " Fares, please ! " Of course. Bill is slightly startled, but produces a ticket at last. Bill is u]) to tricks so soon. Well, I should say Bill is some ladies ' man by the looks of the vari- ous special deliveries, phone messages and letters received by him. The regularity of certain epistles from Westminster and elsewhere is aston- ishing, as well as perplexing, on ac- count of the various postmarks on them. Bill, besides being some " fusser, " often endeavors to perplex his fellow classmates with such questions as this: " Why do ' SO few of us get out of this world alive, etc. " Like the great ( ? ) T. R., Bill is quite progressive and follows his example even to the extent of writing a French-English vocabulary condensed both in spelling and meaning. For example, wee wee — you and me. Bill ' s latest idea is to go into the Philippine Constabulary; his only objection being that he cannot get mar- ried until be becomes a Captain. There is a fine chance for advancement in that service, owing to the fact that so many officers are killed annually. Some inducement (?) to be an officer. " Here ' s to Bill, so good and true, " etc. ; " may he have all success and ad- vancement possible. " An appropriate verse: " Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die.

Secretary, Class; Vice-President, Rifle Club; Assistant Manager Baseball Team; Junior Year. President, Rifle Club; President, Student Assembly; Manager, Baseball Team: Treasurer, Rossbourg Club, Senior Year. " Pop. " " Now, fellows, it amounts to this, " etc. Do you get that cocksure, easy delivery? Sure you do. This speci- men of a Mellin ' s Food baby can be no other than " Pop. " Yes, we call him " Pop, " and why do you ask? Just take one glance at that noble brow with its bumps of knowledge and scarcity of cillious growth. Pop it is, .and Pop it ever shall be. Amen. Are you ready, M. A. C. ? Come on now, fellows, and say, just glue your lamps on that personification of the Beef Trtist. The way he wades through that line is a shame. Pop has held down every office from deck- hand to major, and can hold down either with equal skill and dexterity. Not content to rest on his " laurels, " as an athlete, he is " Gwynn " to ttirn out to be a modern Beau Brummel. By the way. Pop is some student. (Ask Nitz.) Professor Rufifner sug- gested that a Ph. D. be offered him for his knowledge of the computing of rations. In Commy ' s office — " Where is the Cadet Major? " " He is studying for his exams., sir. " " W ' hat right has he to study for exams.? " !!! ????? (Soft music.) Such little scraps of friendly inquiries may be heard issuing forth from Commy ' s office any time between retreat and broad daylight. Yes, Koehler is a military man ; even his highness, " der Commandant, " thinks so, and that is what can be called some boast. One good point about Pop is that you can ' t get his goat — he knows too much about them — " butt, " etc.. etc. Pop has been with us for years, and by his con- stant square dealing and honest endeavor, he has endeared himself to the hearts of all who know him, and we unite in wishing him success and happiness in his life ' s work. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 21 Lieutenant Nathaniel Alan Le Savoy, Company C. . .New York City, N. Y. Animal Husbandry Junior Year, Assistant Manager, Lacross; Tracl , ' 11- ' 12; Senior Year, Art Editor, " Reveille; " Winner of Laurel Sweepstakes in Stock Judging Contest. " NlTZ. ' Lamp that map, kind friend. Dost wonder how any thing- with a topo- graphical survey like that could bear the handle of " Nathaniel Alan? " It is as much of a mystery as his nick- name, " Nitz. " The writer can ' t ex- plain either, but it is possible that he was so yclept because of the fact that whenever a friend of his takes the role of the Governor of North Carolina, and repeats the old but ever welcome formula, Nat al- ways replies in the negative. Being an admixture of Teuton and Bronx- ite. his reply possibly took the form of " nit, " and from its constant use, the plural form " nits " or " nitz " be- came a synonym for N. A. L. S. INIind you. I said it was possible — no more. Nitz is an athlete — one can tell that by the bump on his nose, and his at- tainments along that line are not wholly confined to the muscular va- riety. Why, he ' s beaten every " cop " in New York. The biggest race of his life is now on. He and " Pop " are on the homestretch of the race for the Bovine Engineering Medal, carrying with it the degree of C. F. Although not generally known, the boob is some navigator. He holds the title of blaster Alariner, and has steered to a safe haven nearly every schooner in New York. In addition to being a " fusser, " Ignatz can get fussed .at the slightest provo- cation. On one memorable occasion he acquainted the mother of a very well- known M. A. Caesarine with the fact that her daughter couldn ' t dance enough to keep warm. Since that time he hasn ' t been quite so eager to enter into polite (?) repartee with the mothers of his friends. But here ' s to you, old Rummy. Thirteen expects great things of you, and come what may, Nitz with his bum jokes, volatile disposition and big heart will never be forgotten. 22 THE 1913 REVEILLE Lieutenant Adjutant Mercer B. Mavfield Washington, D. C. Chemical Sophomore Year, Historian, Corporal; Junior Year, Sergeant; Senior Year, Mana- ger of Lacrosse Tiam. " Pat. " Pat stood for law and order when he first entered the mystic portals of M. A. C, but many things have hap- pened since that eventful day. ( Some of the fellows in our class always did think they were Fresh- men. ) Pat soon settled down, when he reached his Senior Year, however, to his duties as Adjutant. He thought that he had a harrl job when Johnnie S. was here, but — Our new Commandant arrives on the scene and Pat ' s troubles immediately begin. It seems that Commy isn ' t satisfied with r at as an Adjutant alone, but wants him to be private secretary, clerk of the court and assistant orderly com- bined. Pat complains that he doesn ' t have time to eat his lunch, but is told that when the Commandant was an Adjutant he only ate one meal a day. Pat says his appearance doesn ' t bear that statement out. Pat did have hard luck with his thesis. He was planning to have it completed by Easter, but our little fire spoiled that by destroying all his notes, and now he has to work clear up to the last day just like the rest of us poor unfortunates. Did someone say ladies— that ' s where Pat shines, especially in the ballroom. He knows all the new dances (with variations) at least a month before they are invented, and maybe he doesn ' t make some use of his knowledge. What spare time Pat has had outside of Commy and dancing, he has spent to good advantage in the Chemical Laboratory, and has made quite an enviable record in that branch. But that is only natural with Pat, .and we are not surprised at all as he has made a habit of getting good marks ever since he entered here. Well, Pat has already s ecured a position which he will fulfill as soon as he graduates. May he have every success. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 23 Sudlersville, Md. Chief Tru: ipeter Ezekeiel J. Merrick Civil Engineering Sophomore Year, Corporal; Junior Year. Sergeant. " Zeke. " Zeke is one of the members of our happy family who hails from the Eastern " Sho. " but for all of that, he has ,a soft spot in his heart for the Western part of the State. This is especially noticed whenever one of our teams go to Westminster. Zeke never misses one of these trips. He is also fond of spending ])art of his holidays at P.ill Hull ' s " home. (Rill lives at Westminster.) Another fa- vorite stunt of Zeke ' s has been to be a month or so late every vacation, but he has always managed to makv up the work, and as one of Doc ' s boys has always managed to hold his own with the rest of the class. Sure, Zeke has had his troubles with Doc, but that never worried Zeke ; the only thing that ever has caused him worry was the fact that he couldn ' t oversleep some morning that the O. C. did. Even if he did mis- calculate rather often, he always man- aged to keep one demerit below the margin. While Zeke has never taken the trouble to particularly shine as an athlete, he has been going after the medal in the tennis tournament for three years now, and at present it looks as though he stands a good chance of getting it this year. This is Zeke ' s only hobby, but if he could get anyone to play tennis with him at four o ' clock in the morning he would willingly go without his three squares and stay on the courts all day. Zeke is the most happy-go-lucky member of our happy bunch, and his smiling face will be sorely missed at M. A. C. 24 TH 1913 REVEILLE Drum Major George Byron Morse, 3c1 Omaha, Neb. General Corporal, Sophomore Year. Sergeant; Chairman, Floor Committee; Junior Prom; Junior Year. Historian; Associate Editor of the " Reveille " ; Senior Year. " Byron. ' Here conies onr band. Wait a mintite until it The tall man in front with the big ' stick is our friend in question. Isjin ' t he some military. Byron is really a military genius — no kiddin ' . Birthplace — he has none. His father is a bacteri- ologist in the Department of Agri- culture, and as a result poor B)yron has been dragged through Philadel- phia, New Jersey, Ohio, New York City, Cambridge, Riverdale, Omaha, Guel])!!, Canada, .and numerous other large cities too ntuiierous to mention. He has suffered torture at the hands of the pedagogues of these various places. His early training was re ceived at Lima, Ohio ; lience. his big bean. X otice the high intellectual brovv ' . Byron says, " he sees the humorous side of everything, " and no one can gainsay him, for he is a veritable Mark Twain. More than once he has turned away wrath with a soft an- swer, and quite often one of his " fool " questions or remarks has set the class in an uproar. This same good sense of humor saved Morse much in his rat year. For a while he had them pretty well bluffed. Quite a number of the old boys advised him not to be so rash if he was a rat. Evidently, the sunny countenance which he wore did not seem relative to the cold pessimistic thoughts of a rat. This progeny of the four winds of heaven is one of Commy ' s pets, and it was due to his drag with the Big Chief that Byron obtained his present job as Drum Major, which, however much it may .appeal to some, does not by any means satisfy his Napoleonic ambitions. Last, but not least, Morse is a social man, as you will see in the heading of this biography. He and Sy work together in a manner very satisfactory to the student body. These, however, are but a few of Byron ' s qualities. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 25 Alfred Nisbet Baltimore, Md. Chemical Senior Year, Assistant Business Manager " Reveille; " Treasurer, Senior Class; Chairman, Programme Committee, Rossbourg Club; Secretary and Treasurer, Chemi- cal Society. " Nebby ' No, this is not our Mellin ' s Food Baby. It is a member of the Senior Class, otherwise known as " Nebby. " Nebby made his appearance on this planet in 1889, and has developed into some orator — his first sentence being ' , " a bo-at, pa-pa; a bo-at ! " He later became enthusiastic over wild animals, and as a result was able to recog " nize the different kinds. He turned over to his father and said : " Make an elephant mit a chizel, pa- pa ; wit a chisel. " Nebby joined our ranks in the year of 1 911, and has worked hard for the interests of the class, especially in the pennant line. I wonder why? Ask A. N. IMeyer Company. Socially. Nebby is " some fusser, " but althoui; ' h his correspondence is very limited, his chubby little face and bright blue eyes cause hearts to flutter and doves to soar from the Avenue and alight in Georgetown. Incidentally, the magnetic attraction of one of the aforesaid doves draws Nebby to Georgetown during some of his leisure hours. Since the terrible catastrophe, Nebby ' s place of abode has been College Arms. He seems to have acquired much popularity there, for every morning the land- lady, on awakening him, replies to some of Nebby ' s fool remarks with " All right, my boy. " In the Military Department, Nebby with his company of " busted aristocrats " is surely some genius, for Captain ( ?) Nisbet is the only one who is the eye of Com- my ' s heart. Nebby has worked hard and diligently in whipping his company of " done fors " into shape, and can enter into competition with any of the regular companies of the battalion. We must not, however, overlook the fact that his star drillers are Sammy and Leo. and he has shown his confidence in their ability by promoting them to the rank of " lootenants.

" Eddie ' Whenever you see a bunch gathered on the campus or in the barracks, there is one safe bet as to the cause, Eddie is cracking a bum joke. For four long years we have been forced to submit to the punishment of Ed ' s jokes. Oh, such jokes. Many and many a time has Ed left a group of his classmates gasping for breath, while he went serenely on his way, looking for additional victims. Besides being the " champeen " long distance joke teller of the Cadet Corps, the bearer is some singer. His voice is like the sweetness of a rusty hinge. The constant giving of the stir- ring command in honeyed tones, " strap- jars and sugar bowls, " is doubtless responsible for the sweetness of the aforesaid voice. If Ed would use fer- tilizer on his nightingale tones he would doubtless make a howling suc- cess in " grand uproar. " He has even been known to sing before the shin- ing crowned heads of College Park. While at M. A. C, this product of " Baltimo " has grown to be some mil- itary genius. His modesty held him down till his Junior Year, when Commy conferred on " A " Company the honor of Sergeant Powell. Then did Edwin Elizabeth ' s genius blaze forth in a blaze of glory. Oh ! much. The recent flood in Illinois dampened his enthusiasm considerably. I forgot to mention that " she " ' lives in Cairo. Yep, everybody ' s doing it, so Ed thought he might as well be in the swim. However, lead where it may, life ' s pathway will always be brightened for Eddy by the best wishes of every one of his classmates. We all feel assured that success will attend him in all his ventures. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 27 Lieutenant John Rowland Reichard, Company B, Horticulture Fairplay, Mel. Junior Year; Sergeant, Class Historian, Junioir Editor " Triangle. " Senior Year; Editor-in-Chief " Reveille, President Y. M. C. A., Secretary Morrill Literary Society. " Daniel. " ' ' ' Come in, fellows; help _ ' ourself to these, " and Reichard, the host, ex- tends to us his guaranteed brain food — dried prunes. Daniel Webster Reichard, the sage of the class, made his debut at M. A. C. in the fall of 1910. It was in Dr. McDonnell ' s classroom that we were first made aware of his mental ability, when he commenced his astonishing disserta- tion on Ira Remsen ' s Inorganic Chem- istr}-. He had completed two cha])- ters, and well into the third, when Doc. Mac regained his senses .and signalled him to stop. I say signalled, because Doc. was speechless. Xever before had such wisdom shown itself in the chemical classroom — aye, even in any classroom at M. A. C. Daniel ' s advent into this life was somewhere in Washington Count}- ; we have been unable to discover the exact location, because Fairplay is merely the work of some imaginative genius who had endeavored to have a spur of the Western Maryland run through his section of the country. As a babe in swaddling clothes, he would bring the wise men of the country swarming to him to receive any chance drop of wisdom which might fall from his infant lips. Soon he entered the pub- lic schools of the State, and before many years had received all available knowledge in that section of the State. To further his mental training he jour- neyed to M. A. C. Upon his arrival the Faculty saw fit to advance the standard of the school a whole year in order that Daniel could remain in our midst at least three years. Our Solomon claims that at the close of his Senior Year he will return to the farm, but we are sure such is not the case. There are too few great minds in this world to let him waste his genius in the country. As to afifairs of the heart, with but one exception, Reichard has none. That exception is the President of the National Women ' s Suffrage League of Fair- play, Maryland. 28 THE 1913 REVEILLE Captain William Kean Robinson, Company B Franktown, Va.

" " Bob. " William K. Robinson, .alias " Bob, " hails from the " Garden Spot of the World — Eastern Sho ' of A irg-inia, " although he claims as his home by adoption the little town of Princess Anne, Md. The adoption of said town is easily explained when we see Bob reading .a daily issue of a book postmarked Princess Anne. Bob, dictagraph like, takes down every extraordinary word, the result being " a large and promiscuous vocab- ulary. " Recapitulate " (one of Commy ' s), now, let me see, " you blank old thing, " " ]iredominate " and others are among his most recent ad- ditions. As a nurse Bob has no equal. This was shown in a most capable man- ner at the home of one of the IVofs. when left in charge of the babies one night. He very carefully prepared his young charges — shoes and all — ■ for bed. Congratulations on your success L ' ncle Bob. Bob takes great interest in the lil- itary Department, and is a decided success as Captain of Company B. At present time Bob is trying to tell Commy how much he knows about " extended orders, " " guard mounting, " etc. (And how much Commy does not know.) We must not omit to mention his musical inclinations. His melodious voice, which reminds one of a buzz-saw striking a knot, often " recapitulates " itself to the tune of " That ' s How I Need You " " or " When I Lost You. " However, there is one thing certain, if he has to pay for all the apparatus he breaks Bob will never be wealthy, and he had better get a position in one of the tropical islands. With all of these failings. Bob is always there with a smile and a bum joke. Laying aside our hammer, we can say that no matter what Bob attempts to do, he always does it with an amazing thoroughness, and there is nothing but a bright future awaiting him. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 29 Chevy Chase, Md. Lieutenant Irving L. Towers, Company A.... Animal Husbandry " Chevy. " After completing- the two-year course in Horticulture, Chevy decided to stay with us a while longer at dear old M. A. C, so he joined the class of 1913 in its Junior Year. This is the sixth year that we have been fa- vored by his company, as he at- tended preliminary classes for two years before taking up the two-year course. Notwithstanding the fact that this fine Cadet was not over enthusiastic about military tactics in previous j years, he has developed into a Lieu- tenant this year of whom Company A is justly proud. Our worthy classmate is either a great student or a wonderful sleeper. Nothing could distract his attention, unless it was to keep up his reputa- tion as a boxer. In stock judging Towers is a strong competitor, win- ning quite a sum in prize money. Everyone was afraid of him at the recent State Fair. However, though he is an excellent milk tester, he is not very keen on the " early rising and moving around " connected with the job. We might mention in this connection that Chevy knows how to test milk without a Babcock tester as well as with one, and has a marked aptness for the concealing of edibles. Being " slow, but sure, " there is not a more promising- society man in the class than this handsome youth. Chevy has undaunted faith in poultry, and we all prophesy that it will only mean a few years after leaving college before he will become a successful poultryman. He is not only an authority on " chickens, " but is an artist as well, and ranks high among the amateurs of the College. Six long years around old M. A. C. have given him a wide and varied knowledge, and we can predict nothing but glowing success for Chevy. 30 THE 1913 REVEILLE George Percival Trax Easton, Md. Civil Engineering " Perce The visage you see in the upper corner of this page is " Sir G. Lord Percival, " so please your grace. Take another look, ladies, gentlemen and college boys. He looks innocent , Init 1:.e vare — still water runs deep. Sir G. Lord Perce for short is a char- acter all to himself. No one has been able to size him up, as it were. Perce entered College in the fall of 1909 from some imknown spot on the Eastern " Sho " , " and held up the reputation of all Eastern Shoremen by appearing on the gridiron. He played on the ' arsity team for three years, but on .account of returning late to school in his Senior Year did not play much, to the sorrow of his fellow teammates. It is remarkable how a good start will help a fellow along. The girls gave Perce the start, and now Commy, Doc. Tolly and Doc Mac have been kept busy trying to stop him. In the Military Department Perce v ' as our shining light. He has been through every stage of the game, from Private to Captain, and then to day-dodging. Just how he became a day-dodger is hard to explain. A few have tried, but have given it up. Boo-hoo, Cab and other College authorities were wont to consult him much upon matters pertaining to student govern- ment. Weighty responsibilities have often been laid upon his broad and ample shoulders, and much confidence reposed in his leadership. Much time has been spent by Perce and Commy in working out the fine points of military law. As a business man. Sir G. has renowned ability. During his Junior Year he managed the Triangle very creditably. He has also shown his ability as a professional man, his specialty being doctoring. Whatever line of work that Perce may select, we feel ' sure that he will make good and hold up the repu- tation of old M. A. C. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 31 Mt. Savage, Md. Lieutenant Ernest Trimble, Company C Civil Engineering " Sox. " Several years ago there drifted into M. A. C. from the mountains of Western Maryland a wild-looking chap, who for obvious reasons, was promptly dubbed " Sox, " and " Sox " ' it has been ever since. He was nat- urally bright, and so had ample time to make friends and become ac- (juainted with conditions in .and around the Park generally. Just as soon as he got the lay of the land, he began doing a rushing business. You may well wonder what business it was that occupied so much of his time. It was simply this — selling. It didn ' t matter in the least ndiat it was, Sox would sell it. He has at one time or another sold nearly every necessity known in the annals of our College history. Sox made his greatest flight in the realms of high finance when he sold a rat a bedroom suite and then collected three months ' rent in advance. Sox has taken some part in nearly every branch of athletics in College, but it is in lacrosse that he has starred, and it was in this game that he won for himself his title of " Terrible " Trimble. Sox is one of Doc ' s boys, and is never happy unless he is somewhere near the Engineering Building or working on some unusually difficult problem. Despite the fact that Sox has been kidding everybody here ever since the first day he arrived, he has a host of true friends who will regret to see him leave old M. A. C. He has retained the happy faculty of getting through with his " exams.. " and says he has reserved room in his trunk for that dip he expects to take home with him in Tune. 32 THE 1913 REVEILLE Captain Charles M. White, Company C Lonaconing-, Md. Mechanical Engineering Sophomore Year, Vice-President Class; Junior Year, Business Manager " Triangle, " Class Treasurer; Senior Year, President Class, President Athletic Association, Vice- President Rifle Club, Secretary Rossbourg Club, Chairman Organization Committee June Ball. " Fritz ' If any wayfarer while wandering through the wilds of Garrett County or College Park has heard a mourn- fully plaintive howl, which sounded like the call of one of Darwin ' s long sought for missing links, the accom- panying picture will be of great in- terest to him, for it is none other than that of Bob White. Bob has a unic|ue w,ay of barking at the moon, which accounts for this bit of high flown introduction. Really, though, this picture doesn ' t do Bob justice. It only shows a very verv small portion of him. We don ' t mean by this that Bob has a bone head. We just want to tell you that although he does measure 6 feet 3 inches, he isn ' t one bit top-heavy. This same noise to which we re- ferred in the beginning was first heard in Garrett County some time in the early ' 90 ' s. Upon ' inquiry, it was discovered that the young Charles McElroy had arrived in the world and was clam- oring for something to eat ; and those who have known Bob long can testify that he has never changed his ideas of true pleasure. The restilt we all know, as everyone wants to know how much more Bob will grow — he is now 6 feet 3 inches tall, and 2 feet along the ground, and looks up to no man. But even as David conquered the giant, so was this man who measured his height by the yardstick conquered by — well, even his best friends cannot learn her name, but she resides in Pittsburg. Aside from his many faults, we can say of Bob that he is a thorough stu- dent, because we believe he will get the medal in his course. He has extremely high ideals, is a loval booster of M. A. C, and is .a friend who will never fail. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 33 College Park, Md. Lieutenant William H. White, Company B, Biological " Bill. Entering College about the year one and registering ,as a day scholar, Bill is among the pioneers of the class. As an experimenter in regard to work, he is a wonder, for he has tried every course ofifered at M. A. C. in " ology, " and though we are ' unprepared to say just what kind of " ology " he will make his specialty, we think, however, he will devote most of his time to girl-ology. Bug- ology is now his specialty. Most any time during the day Bill may be seen carting a load of cyanide into the greenhouse for the benefit of his six-legged, greenbacked, big-eyed, pestiverous friends. But Lieutenant White takes care of his human friends in a decidedly diiTerent ' manner from the way in which he cares for the bugs. He has some difficulty in filling his social engagements .and studying " at the same time. He makes up for lost sleep, though, in the class in Cur- rent Topics on Monday morning, and in Prof. C. ' s bugology laboratory in the afternoon. In Physics he is a walking encyclopedia. He spent much of his time during his course in investigating physical phenomena. In view of this fact, however. Dean C. played upon his knowledge of Physics like a perpetual dynamo. At first it was doubtful as to whether this class would get him, or whether he would go with that maudlin crowed — the class of ' 12 — but fortune smiled upon us and favored the brave, and now he gives promise of graduating with one of the greatest classes that ever entered M. A. C. 34 THE 1913 REVEILLE Senior Class Ode. To the tune of " Love Thoughts.

June has come, and she hrings with her a final touch to our sojourn beneath the banner of old M. A. C. As the good ship of 19 13 nears her port, it fills us with emotions of joy and sadness — joy, because we feel that now we are prepared to enter upon the great battle of life; sadness, at the breaking of the bonds which have held us together for four long years. Long years they seemed, when as Freshmen, we were introduced into the great fraternity of college men ; but as we look back, how short they seem ? As Freshmen our class numbered forty members, and we stood about the halls of the new building in wonderment. Lonely and strange, we looked with ad- miration at the rapidly arriving " old boys. " At last we were ushered as a part of the entire student body before the Faculty, and being duly installed as students, our college life began. We remember with what joy we were greeted bv the hospitable Sophomores, and how every night they faithfully vis- ited us ; for months they were thus solicitous of our welfare. The dignified Seniors, our company commanders, labored patiently with us, trying to whip us into some semblance of soldiers. The first term of our career was well under way when we were rudely interrupted in our work. We re- member with sorrow the holidays which were thrust upon us by the scarlet fever scare, and how we were forced to return home. Toward the close of the first year we were ordered to the target range at Stump Neck, and further introduced to military life with the regulars. On our return to the campus we found our final " exams. " awaiting us, and after them — " the deluge. " One week of rain under canvas in the shadow of the flag- stafif. The dav of commencement was clear and at parade that afternoon the graduating officers bade us farewell. Our Sophomore Year found us together again, but with some of the old faces replaced with new ones. It was then that Greenberg, Reichard, Healy and Robinson joined. We returned to College with that important air which made the Vice-President explain to us that the derivation of the word Sopho- more is a " wise fool. " Our chief aim th at year was the careful upbring of the new men, and con- scientiously working with them and visiting them as we had been visited, ex- cept that we were even more attentive than our predecessors had been. We introduced the system of " rat rules " to aid them in their daily life, but these were short-lived, as some of the powers looked with disapproving eye upon them. Commencement week brought us together again under canvas, and again we bade farewell to our Senior officers. Then came a sadder duty. We bade good-bye to one whom we had learned to love and respect— Captain Edgar T. Conley, V. S. A., a man who for two years, as he had guided us through many of ' the disagreeable duties connected with military matters, had taught us that fair play and unbiased observance of our duties were the first and fun- damental principles of a true soldier and gentleman. So ended the turbulent passage of our Sophomore Year, and we owe our safe voyage to " Peck " Davis whose steady hand was at the wheel. We remember the coming of our Junior Year, with its heavier responsi- bilities and graver duties, and how we upheld the dignity of upper classmen. 36 THE 1913 REVEILLE In the classroom, on the drill field, and in the dififerent branches of student gov- ernment, our experiences all tended to settle us to a more serious view of things. This year brought us a new king, who knew not Joseph. The War Depart- ment detailed Lieutenant John S. Upham as Commandant and Professor of Military Science and Tactics. The fall of 1912 found us again at College, but now we were full-fledged Seniors, with all the rights and privileges thereto appertaining. This year brought graver duties and sterner discipline. The Faculty saw fit to yield the entire control of the students to the students, and 1913 was honored by the detailing of the four ranking officers to take the posts of officers in charge, thus doing away with the civilian officers. We had settled down to work, and the machinery of routine was running smoothly. The first term was almost over ; the Thanksgiving holidays were on ; all but forty students were at their homes. It was the night of the 29th of November. The Cadets who had remained were holding an informal hop in the College auditorium. " There was a sound of revelry by night; " refreshments were being served in the mess hall when word was brought to the Cadet Major that a blaze had been discovered in the new building. No knowledge of the affair was allowed to reach the guests until the size of the fire had become known. Then the ladies were notified, and they withdrew with a coolness which was prais worthy. When the alarm had been sounded, and it was seen that the buildings could not be saved, the Cadets commenced the rescue of the property of their class- mates. Those who were present that night will remember the work of heroes too numerous to name. They all worked gallantly to save all they could from those ever-greedy tongues of flame. Then our guests of the evening — how can we ever show our gratitude for the aid that they gave us? Clad as they were in their dainty evening gowns, they set to work as gamely as any man among us. As we watched the fire lick up the two buildings, we little thought what it meant to us, but when the next day dawned upon the heap of smouldering ruins, then came the realization of our loss. " No barracks, " for a moment meant " no school ; " but the indomitable spirit of old M. A. C. rose manfully to the occasion. The people in the nearby towns threw open their doors to us. The College work went on, almost without a break. There have been difficulties, but the old school has emerged from the disaster triumphant. The year rolled on after Cliristmas ; Major Dapray was assigned to us as our Commandant to take the place of Lieutenant Upham. who was assigned to duty with his company. Major Dapray is a soldier of the old school and under adverse conditions is holding M. A. C. up to her old standard. ■ June is here. Soon the old ship 191 3 will be safely in her port, and we will bid our last farewell to the scenes so dear to us. In the words of our class ode, it is but " One more step ere our brave banner of maroon and white shall float, Firm and bold, in royal manner ; then in lands perhaps remote. May we climb the ladder bravely, nothing daunted day by day, Ever glad to praise and yield all honor to old M. A. C. " MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 37 Soliloquy of a Senior. As I sit and dream and ponder, Of the four years that have passed, I hesitate no longer — • Even though this be my last.

The sur- vivor of over a year ' s arduous mihtary dis- ciphne, he suddenly, after one of his many Cockeysville trips, emulated Patrick Hen- ry and resigned his commission as Quar- termaster Sergeant. All that the class was ahle to worm from him was that the class was already e(|uipped with a bean pole, the walk from the wilds of Berwyn was suffi- cient exercise ; and, .anyway, his voice was not of proper S. G. for an officer. Now his odd moments are spent dreaming of " chickens. " We are positive his thoughts are worthy of record and hope in this con- nection soon t() see his name in print.

Such an attractive, good-natured athlete cannot hope to escape the charms of the fair sex. Needless to say, Dick is always present at the College dances, and finds time to devote to social functions elsewhere as well. Good luck to you, old man. L. G. WiLL.soN Sandy Springs, Aid.

Do not let the above picture mislead you to think that " Wills " is a woman hater. Tt is hardly possible that his paternal love is so great as to cause him to make weekly trips home. May this ardent lover meet his " Waterloo " in love afifairs. 42 THE 1913 REVEILLE Class Officers. G. Davis President H. S. Deakstvne J iee-President A. r. Todd Secretary-Treasurer E. W. Benson Historian H. W. White Sergcaiit-at-Arms Class History. In the fall of lyii entered the wildest Two-Year Class ] [. A. C. has ever known. The Profs, even classed us as monkeys, and therefore we leave it to their imagina- tion who threw the apple through the greenhouse roof, who scattered beans, etc.. over " ' Tolly ' s " floor, and who broke the Library window with a snow-ball. The long summer drought was responsible for the non-appearance of our class, conditions causing our original number of thirty-three to dwindle down to twelve. Commencement finds us with a roll of nine, capable of covering much more than the allotted work. We greatly regretted missing almost a term ' s work of each year, on account of the additional work imposed upon our instructors by the free short courses. It is our opinion that the Two-Year courses are of such great importance that they should be better advertised and given more attention. The graduates of the Two-Year class are of great benefit to the agricultural and horticultural industries of the State, owing to the fact that the two-year men invariably go " back to the farm. " Our class has been fortunate in producing men prominent in College circles: Two varsity football men — White and Willson. A varsity pitcher — White. A lacrosse man — Willson. A member of tennis team — Irving. A member of basket-ball team — Willson. Two members of rifle team — Benson and Irving. A member of stock-judging team — Davis. A Y. M. C. A. Secretary — Benson. An assistant business manager of Triangle — Todd. A Y. M. C. A. delegate— Benson. Four sergeants — Benson, Mason, Todd and White. (And numerous milk testers.) We hope to see the innovation introduced by our class furthered by the suc- ceeding Two- Year Classes, and we wish to express our thanks to the Senior Class of 191 3 for their courtesy in granting us this appearance in the Reveille.

The Chief told me at the very start that I should fail, but it is very hard to convince a young fellow who, as yet, knows not the way of the world, that he will fail in anything. The mission was a desperate one. It involved dangers that none but the most foolish and hot-blooded youngster would court. Yet, when it fell to my lot to be chosen from so many to be the instrument whereby that lawless gang of outlaws, generally known as the Junior Class of M. A. C, should be brought before the seat of justice, I .accounted myself the happiest man in the land. , Now for a word of explanation. This gang — may 1 rather call it a class? — was not composed of ruffians. No, indeed they were the " raffles " type — all gentlemen. For a long time that part of America, known as College Park, had been in- fested with these men, and the entire population was in fear of them. Why, the outrages committed by these Juniors at last became so obnoxious that the inhabitants sent a petition to the Government, and begged that this pes- tilence be removed at once. They would think nothing of entering the home of ,a peace-loving citizen of College Park on the eve of a social function, and, after stealthily removing all his ice-cream and choice cakes, give him nine such " Rahs! " as would make him (this same peace-loving citizen) think kindly of them ever after. As a result of the aforesaid petition, I, the youngest of the United States Secret Service, was sent out to round these Juniors up, and fix them so that they would be a credit to their community. Quite an undertaking for a young- ster to assume to perform singly, yet, how my eyes sparkled, and how quickly my heart beat when I thought that on the morrow I should be on the trail of the most unscrupulous gang of desperadoes in the East. Oh, fiery ambitions of youth ! How often fate laughs in our faces because of these ambitions. As the morning sun arose in the East to make his journey of a day, I likewise, prepared to leave the lovely little town of Washington to make my journey into the unknown jungles of College Park. My fiery steed (a spavined mare of 20 years) was saddled, my guns on the hip and my flasks were well filled with that superb stimulant especially adapted to emergencies in the desert. And so for three days and three nights I traveled without ceasing. At the expiration of the second day my liquid refreshment gave out, and after that I suffered agonies untold. My lips became parched, my tongue clove to the roof of my mouth, my eyes burned from the contact of the hot dry sand of the desert, and my throat methought was afire. In this condition I arrived at the foot of the hill on the brow of which was the stronghold of the Juniors. ' Twas evening. The shadows slowly lengthened and the evening zephyrs breathed a gentle kiss upon my burning brow. Slowly I walked my steed up the hill, fearfully looked I around me, for who could tell but that some one of that notorious bunch might be awaiting me to give unto me a warm reception. However, I reached the top of the hill without mishap, and there a scene of utter desolation met my eager eyes. One glance sufficed to show me the ravages of an unconquerable fire. That which but yesterday had stood in all its glory to testify to the existeyce of a MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 49 successful college, now, was not, and in its place there lay a mass of smoldering ashes and bricks. At length my eyes became riveted upon a spot right in the center of the road at the very brow of the hill where once stood what must have been, to judge by the ruins, a beautiful building. But what held my gaze so intently was, in- deed, a rare object. It was the figure of a very little man seated cross-legged upon a large stone ball which seemed to have been a part of the decoration of one of the burned buildings. As I drew nearer the object of my curiosity 1 noticed that, though the little fellow was not misshapen, he was just plain ugly, and mighty ugly. You, my reader, may have seen some ugly faces in your life, but never a l)ird like this. He had on a pair of huge black-rimmed goggles which gave him the appear- ance of an overgrown grasshopper. His complexion was of an olive drab, with the pimple polka-dot effect. But after I had gazed into his small, deep set, piercing eyes for fully a minute, I realized that tliere was more to him than his mere physical appearance. " Could you give me any information, " " said I, " as to the whereabouts of the Juniors of M. A. C? " ' He looked at me a few seconds, and then carefully expectorated and wiped his mouth on a bandana. Next he took from his mouth a quid of chewing tobacco, which would have choked .an ordinary horse, put it into a little tin re- ceptacle, and said: " Well, I reckon I kin, bein ' as how I ' m one o ' ' em myself. " " Pray, tell me who you are, ' ' said I, and I felt my knees knocking together in a fashion as to keep time with a lively two-step. " Why, I are Ras, " and he smiled; and lo, he was uglier. " Everybody knows Ras ' round these diggins. I am the guy what ' s gotta write the history of these Juniors, and I knows all about them. " " Well, then, would you mind taking me around .a bit, and making me ac- quainted with them. I have heard so much al)out them that I really would feel honored by meeting them. " " Sure, I ' ll take you. " And that ' s how it started. Little knew I what I was up against. The first Junior I met seemed a harmless little brute, but little I knew of him. My guide, noticing for the first time my physical condition, drew from a deep recess in his trousers a large, mellow brown bottle with many " X ' s " on it. This he gave unto me, and I drank, and never before, nor since, drank I such a noble draught. Ras ' brand was at least good. I was much refreshed. " Well, " said, " we have just time enough to go down to Reddy Williams ' house to dine. He ' s a pretty bad one, so come on. " So down the road we went, and when we neared the center of the Park I heard voices raised in argument. It .sounded something like this : " Reddy, you ' ve cooked that bloomin ' egg two and a half hours and it isn ' t soft yet. Why don ' t you put a little more salt in the water j I like mine salty. " " Deed, do you, and who do you think is doing " this cooking, anyway. " " You ' re not, that ' s a cinch. You ' re in love again, Reddy. How do you e.x- pect to cook? " 50 THE 1913 REVEILLE just then man}- noises came out of that house, and as we entered we found two men flighting ' . Pans, pots, china and knives were flying through the at- mosphere at the rate of ten per second. No one was hurt, however, and my guide introduced me to Mr. J. 15. Gray and ] lr. R. C. WilHams, both Juniors. Johnny and Reddy were keeping batchelor ' s hall, and the dinner they gave us was rather rare. It was all served " a la mode. " There was an abundance of chinaware. We spent the night with Redd} ' , and the next morning I wandered otT b myself in search of new adventure. " T A ' as not long before I found it. In de- tail I will tell you all about it. I had not walked very far when I heard footsteps approaching. I turned and beheld an awe-inspiring sight. A tall, good-looking, blue-eyed chappie was bearing down upon me — and the noise he was making with his mouth was ter- rible. " Hemystera, Colepederatiumrr, Pharmeacramuxurn, " said he. " What ' s your name and what are you doing? " I asked. Carefully he looked me over. Then he took an entire plug of " picnic " twist and put it into the cavern below his nose. He kept a rigid silence for half an hour, after which he watered the road with tobacco juice, and began his tale thusly : " I am a Junior, my name is Lord Francis O ' Neill, of Germany; and for my morning ' s exercise I call all the bugs and insects in the world by their first name. " When my senses returned I found myself seated next to a tall, distinguished, looking man in a classroom. It was logic that was being taught. My vision was clearing rapidly, and I noticed that the gentleman next to me was about to speak. " Professor Bomberger, will }ou please tell me logically how Lam Levinsky is going to start a new clothing store where Mike Levin used to was is been aind it? " Later I found out that his name was l ruitt, and he was a logician. Just then an infant in another ] art of the room chir])ed out: " If my father gives me a promissory note for a hundred dollars, and he won ' t give me the money, and I get somebody else to cash it, wliat ' U I get? " Somebody bawled out: " Why, Deeley, you ' d get a lickin ' . " The silence that followed was l)roken by a fiaxen-haired Junior named Rogers. He said : " ' P " esser, if I promised to marry a Hyattsville girl, and don ' t do it, can she sue for a breach of promise? I ' m an infant in the eyes of the law, you know. " Before the Professor could open his mouth, a real cute-looking youth by the name of Coster jumped up and said: " Does the honorable gentleman from Bal- timore think that any girl from Hyattsville would marry him? He ' s got the mumps. " " But, ' Lesser, if I get on a train with a ticket that is five years old, and they put me off with force, can I sue for insult and injury to my dignity? " " Try it and see, ] lr. Fletcher, " said the Professor. And these were the men I was sent out with to round up ! And as I though.t m - heart was heavv within mv breast. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 51 As I gazed around that classroom I saw man ' juniors who. as et, had done nothing to make me famihar with them, Ixit — I had had en(iugli ! Slowly, and sadly, I wended my way from that room. Aly trusty steed was impatiently awaiting my return. Sorrowfully and despondently I mounted, and with all the hope burned out of my life, I once again turned my face to my native City of Washington. Even my mare seemed to share my feeling of des])ondenc_ -. for his ver ' figure took on a look of utter dejection. It was finished. The Juniors were ho])eless — and so was I. They continued enjo ing life as before — even as nmcli as if tliev had good sense, but ah! thcv were mv " Waterloo. " 52 THE 1913 REVEILLE Junior Class Ode. TO THE TUNE OF " DEAR OLD GIRL.

In the days of old, in the realms of thought, the seers soared far away; In the days of old, did they think of naught but juggling words? Nay, nay — We are told they taught, they preached, they fought for the things they thought were right. But after all, with their words so tall and sleek and smooth and fine, They have failed to grasp, from first to last, a thought of the true sublime. For with all of their teaching and all of their preaching, they never yet have shown How a fellow can beat the O.

R. 58 THE 1913 REVEILLE History of Class of 1915. The scholastic year of 1912 had a most auspicious begiuuing for the class of 191 5. All but two of last year ' s representatives returned to resume their studies. Another favorable omen for our class was the entrance into its ranks of a num- ber of rats. AVe feel sure that these new boys will reflect credit and honor to the class of 1915. The Sophomore class each year has the great responsibility of acting as father, mother and big brother toward the rats. It endeavors to please them, as such near relatives should, by supplying them with all the little necessities of life, prominent among which we find broom fights, rat-meeting, and other social events of great pleasure to the aforesaid new boys. Our class acted as a reception committee for the new boys, and you may rest assured, gentle reader, that they were well received. It is said that one of our number ( who, by the wa} ' , travels to Hyattsville rather frequently) had a large blister on his hand as the result of continuous application of the persuader. So vou see, gentle reader, that our class has labored most industriously, in order that the new boys might feel at home, and we have received many thanks ( ?) from them for our most noble work. The class of " 15 feels greatlv honored as a result of the vote of thanks tendered them by the faculty and O. C. ' s, expressing their thanks for the good conduct of our class. Yet a suspicion must have been entertained by " Big Bob " that we were not as innocent as we looked, for one does not sit up of his own accord until the roosters begin to crow. So it may be seen that our class has always been ready to help out the O. C. ' s when in trouble, and it has done everything in its power to preserve order during its Sophomore year. Because of the intellectual ability of the class of 1915, we can rest assured that they will set a new record as to the highest number of conditions received in one term. So you see, gentle reader, that our class has labored most indefatigably to preserve order and promote learning at dear old M. A. C, though the Sophomore class is usually charged with every atrocious misdemeanor that is committed during the year. Our class will always look back to the year " when we were Sophs, " at dear old M. A. C, and think of the pleasant times we enjoyed. We are all now looking forward to the time when we shall be full-fledged Juniors, so let us ring the curtain down on the Sophomore class of 191 5.

The Freshman Class of the present scholastic year started with forty-three students on the roll. This number has gradually decreased to thirty-three stu- dents. A few of our classmates were obliged to leave college because of circum- stances over which they had no control. Some of the fellows, however, seemed to tire of the gay college life, including militarw and longed to be at home with " mother. " " Some were suddenly aware of the fact that they would rather work at home than go to college. Their parents, probably thinking their sons were sick, told them they might come home. The disastrous fire which destroyed the bar- racks did not cause any of our class to leave college. The Freshman had some fine times. For instance, the night we nearly decor- ated the campus. If the O. D. had not arrived at the wrong time, we would have given a fine demonstration of landscape gardening. Although the attempt was unsuccessful, it broke the ice for the other classes. The new members of the class derived great pleasure from meetings which were held, under the management of the " Sophs, " in a certain room on the top floor of the new barracks. Judging from the singing and oratory, these meetings greatly resembled literary societies. These new cadets also discovered that errand running, sweeping, and gun clean- ing were easy ways to help break the monotony of barrack life, and also to drive away thoughts of home. The Freshman Class was well represented in all forms of athletics. Some of the best players on the football and baseball teams were Freshmen. The trajck team was mostly composed of Freshmen. Our class has representatives from all parts of the country, including Charles County and the " Eastern Sho ' . " If the ambitions of some of our classmates are realized, there will be such miracles performed in the military, agricultural, engineering, and political worlds that parents will mortgage their houses to send their sons to M. A. C. We are all looking forward to that great day in 1916, when we shall say " Fare- well " to our friends at M. A. C, and go forth as men to make our way in the world. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 65 A Rat ' s Recollections. When Reveille did loudly blow, And the ground was white with snow, And the stars peeped in so bright, From the darkness of the night. And the air so cold and chill Made the notes sound weird and shrill, Left my brain in such a flurry. Then it was I used to worry. When your shoulders back must be. Cap on brow so you can ' t see. Eyes to the front, fins turned out. Corners square, face right about. When we had to go just so, Upstairs, downstairs, to and fro. Head and brains and heels all hurry, Then it was I used to worry. When at early morn we ' d dine On " strap " and milk and " dogs " so fin e. And on eggs that once were new. But now, alas, advanced had grew. One chicken furnished soup, somehow, And butter never saw a cow; Everything without the curry — Then it was I used to worry. But now, fellows, don ' t you know. Things don ' t seem to go just so? Fort Conly now in ashes lies, No more O. C. ' s to play our spies. The rooms are swept for once and all, No pictures hang upon the wall. Farewell, topsy-turvy hurry; Therefore — I should worry. J .R.

The Military Department of the 3,lar land Agricuhiiral Colle. e owes its origin to the now-famous Federal law, known as the " Morrill Act, " which was passed in 1862. It guaranteed certain Federal hel]) to those educational institutions whicli wor:l(l include in their curriculum the teaching of agriculture, mechanics, arts and science, and militar - science and tactics. The three great duties of the rural citizen are to improve and conserve the farm lands, to develop a high standard of rural life in time of peace and to protect this land and life if the time for fighting should unhappily ever come. It is the airii of our College and its lilitar}- Department to educate its boys to the highest standard of rural citizenship. The United States must always fight its wars — wars which cannot be evaded or avoided, peace theories to the contrary notwithstanding. West Point alone cannot supply the demand for officers. The very first call for volunteers for a big war would take at least fifteen thousand company ofificers, and if the military schools of the country do not furnish them, the country would be at a loss to secure its trained men. Of course, there is another advantage in militar - schools — an advantage wholly apart from the life and duties of soldiery. Every military student learns self-contnd, self-restraint and self-discipline. He learns method, and soon real- izes that it is as easy to do things the right way as it is to do them the wrong way. Fie learns the rules of fair play, uprightness and square dealing. He learns how to control himself, and as a result knows how to control others. He is not only fit to be a leader of men in military service, peace and war, but to govern and control and lead and handle men in the larger avocations of life. He can run a ranch or big farm or superintend any industry much better with his military training than he could without it. With traditional respect for these facts, which relate to the origin and purpose of its military department, the students of the M. A. C. have always felt the laudable ambition to excel! in the achievements expected of them in military work. That is why they are proud of the star they won as " Distinguished Institution, " but nothing- in that feeling will keep them from entering fully and cheerfullv into the new plans that are being considered for a reorganized military department, under the new conditions and the new Commandant, who is to act under the new President of the College. The War Department exacts no prescribed amount of military instruction ; it only fixes the minimum, and below that M. A. C. will never fall at least not while it cherishes tradition. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 73 Mayor John A. Dapray, U. S. A., Retired. Major Dapray holds a dual position at the College, discharging duties of two important, but wholly separate and distinct offices. In one he is the representa- tive of the War Department, and acts as the Military Instructor in charge of the cadet corps, as a class. In the other, as Commandant, he is the duly elected college official charged at all times with the discipline of the institution. By birth and early eduation he is a South Carolinian. Coming to make his home in Washington, he was admitted to the District Bar from the National Law School, and later indulged in newspaper and magazine work, becoming the private Secretary of L. O. C. Lamar, of Mississippi. In 1 88 1 President Hayes gave Major Dapray his original appointment as a Lieutenant in the Army, with men like Hampton and Butler, of South Carolina ; Gordon, of Georgia ; Lamar, of Mississippi, and many prominent editors of maga- zines and newspapers. He first joined his regiment in Colorado, where for four years he saw active Indian service. In 1885 he succeeded General W. S. Han- cock, at Governor ' s Island, X. Y.. and the following year became Aide-de-Camp to General Nelson A. Miles, in his famous campaign against the x rizona Apaches. In the next few years his duties were varied, covering service in Texas. Aide to Secretary of War Elkins, duty at the White House under President Harrison, Adjutant at the War Department ' s " Model Camp " at the Chicago Exposition in 1893, " d finally Adjutant of the Twenty-third Regiment of Infantry, on duty on the Mexican border. When the war with Spain broke out, he was appointed Assistant General of the L nited States Volunteers, and assigned to the First Division of the Third Army Corps. He next joined his regiment in the Philippines as one of the first commanders, with power of governor, judge and jury. On his return, in 1902, he again went on duty in Texas, then in Florida as Alilitary Adviser to the Gov- ernor, and after three years ' service, was transferred to special duty in the War Department of Military Information, and subsequently assigned to the Army War School. He was next appointed as Commandant at Peacock School, at San Antonio, Texas, and from there assigned to duty at the M. A. C. in January, 1913. With Commy. In dear old M. A. C, That ' s where I long to be; Where hearts are ever true, And you will ne ' er feel blue; Where we have drill every day, And yet have time to play. That ' s where I long to be — With Commy, at M. A. C. 74 THE 1913 REVEILLE Target Practice at Congress Heights. Last fall (luring- the first week of October, when the leaves were assuming their color of maturity, the different classes of the college cadet corps, acting in compliance with an order from the Commandant ' s office, took trips to Congress Heights, D. C, for the practice in shooting with the United States Magazine rifle on the District National Guard Range. Each class welcomed then- trip as an event of instruction and ])leasure. This is invariably the case in military activi- ties at the Coll ege when these two characters are combined. The first trip was made by the members of the Junior and Senior classes. After hurriedly eating our breakfast we secured lunches and ammunition, each cadet carrying his supply, and lueandered jo3 ously to the trolley station to board the 7.30 car. As the weather was delightful and the fellows were feeling quite " natural. " after their ir.orning smoke, it is only reasonable to expect that the ride over to the " Heights " was a lark in itself. Lieutenant Upham, our Ex-Command- ant, greeted, and joined us on our way through the city, after the " smoke " had subsided. When we reached the end of the trolley journey, Major King, of the District National Guards, who had the supervision of the range, kindly invited the Commandant and the cadet commissioned officers, as many as could, to ride in his ' bus. The rest of the party proceeded on foot to the range, a distance of about a mile. In a very few minutes firing began. Not only were the bull ' s eyes in the targets riddled, but it would have been rather dangerous to venture within some distance of the mark, either in the bushes below or above the target. As all of the bovs could not shoot at the same time, it fell to the lot of some of theni to assist the men on the range with the targets. On one such occasion " Byron " Morse almost got the erroneous impression that the Commandant did not intend to let him try his markmanship at all. During the half hour for lunch almost all of the fellows would find their way back to the stores on the car line for soft drinks and cakes. Leaving the range in the late afternoon, when the sun was about two hours high, the party of the day, weary and lame, made their way to the car. Shortly after six o ' clock the crowd from the range would come straggling up the college avenue hungry as wolves. The Sophomore, Ereshman, and the old boys of the Sub-Ereshman and Preparatory classes, went to the range on their respective days. Those who composed the party of the last day were men from all classes wlio thought they could better their previous score. The Sophomore class kept up their reputation for having a good time, on all such occasions. A medal was awarded by the National Rifle Association for the highest total score, 128 out of a possible 150 being made by Lieutenant H. P. Ames. All those having a total score of 98 or over received a marksman button. Winrf " Miss Ethel Gwynn Laurel, Md. Sponsor for Battalion. Major Hugh S.

" These were words which, not shouted, but whispered in the ears of the Senior officers on the night of November 29th, set everything astir. Oh! .What a beautiful night it was. Nearly everybody had gone home to en- joy the Thanksgiving vacation, and all around the barracks everything was quiet and still. The surrounding landscape was flooded far and wide by the silvery light of the moon, as through a cloudless sky she calmly soared to her zenith. It was an ideal night for a nice little dance. " All was quiet and still? " " No, not quite. " The orchestra was quiet ; all were at refreshments. Occasional bursts of mer- riment, issuing from the mess hall in the old barracks arose above the whis- pering of the old pines on the campus. It was in the midst of such merriment that misfortune found the students of the AT. A. C. For some time a faithful band of fighters had been working hard and with apparent success, both in fighting the fiames and in avoiding the panic which news of the fire might cause among the guests. lUit now the southwest wind seemed to add new hunger to the flames, and slowly, but surely, they were mounting to the attic. In as quiet a way as possible, the dancers were notified that a blaze had started up in the new barracks, and perhaps it would be better for them to withdraw. Then it was that the true manhood of each AI. A. Caesar came to the front. Quietly and orderly all went out, .and then each man in his evening clothes turned to the burning building, but all was too late. Already the flames were issuing from the eaves and gable window of the southwestern portion of the building. The attic was full of smoke .and too hot to allow anyone to enter. All the streams that could be played upon the fire were turned on and everybody was working hard, Init all to no avail. The halls filled rapidly with smoke, and fanned bv a light southwestern breeze, what, but a short time before had been a small blaze, was rapidly assuming threatening " proportions. The flames now rose high and started to their work of destruction with a roar. It now became quite clear to all that our own fire- fighting apparatus was totally inadequate to the demands of the case, so all who were not already engaged in removing property from the burning building turned their efiforts in that direction, ' ho can relate even a few of the things he said or tell what he did? Who will ever forget the hurrying to and fro, the bursting of doors, the crashing of trunks, suit cases, etc., on the hard cement walk as thev were thrown from the windows? MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 99 Some, becoming nervous and excited, threw things indiscriminately ; but through it all a remarkable coolness of head was exhibited by the majority of the Cadets. First attention was given to the records and other valuables in the offices on the first floor, a large proportion of their most valuable contents being saved. But there was barely time for this, and little time for anything else. The roof of the doomed building was now all ablaze, and portions of it had fallen in, so that it was dangerous to attemi)t to save much on the top halls. Later, portions of the walls began to fall so that the building had to be aban- doned to its fate. The flames swept through it very rapidl ' , and in a sur- prisingly short time it was one blazing furnace. By this time quite a crowd had gathered from the surrounding towns. Pro- fessors and sympathetic friends, together with a fire-fighting brigade from Hy- attsville, .all set to the task with self-sacrificing ardor. Of course, it was use- less to attempt to save anything from the new barracks. Portions of its walls had already fallen and others were in a tottering condition. Attention was now turned to saving the remaining buildings. The old bar- racks, although the wind was carrying the heat and flames away from it, was likely to burst into flames at any moment. Science Hall also stood in a very threatening and strategic position. If the flames should claim it, who could tell how much more would be lost? The woodwork on the corner next to the Administration Building was so hot that the hand could not be borne upon it. Streams of water were kept playing over the woodwork by a number of men. prominent among them being the janitor, who kept his post despite the intense heat, until t-he building was out of danger. Our efiforts to save the old barracks were fruitless. The door to the attic was battered in, the skylights knocked out or kicked out in order to carry a line of hose on the roof. This was done, but the ]iressure had now become so low that not enough water could be obtained to be of much value. The fight was continued, however, until an adverse pufif of wind filled the building with smoke from the new barracks. The position then became so hazardous that it was necessary to leave. Later the wind blew more strongly from the southwest, and as many of the windows were open much of the smoke disappeared and a chance was given to save more of the students " property. The fire spread rather slowly. It had to work against the wind, and from the top of the building to the bottom, in addition, the construction was entirely ditTerent from the other barracks. Though by no means a fireproof building, it having been built in 1856, the brick structure stood the ravages of the flames remarkably well. The top floor fell in first ; then the fourth, and so on down, until the whole building presented the spectacle of a huge blazing furnace lighting up the midnight sky 100 THE 1913 REVEILLE with a million glaring sparks. Xo more awe-inspiring ' sight could have been wished by those who are thrilled by roaring, crackling flames and billowing clouds of smoke. It was a scene long to be remembered, and not many Cadets will forget the emotions which filled their hearts as, standing in the fire ' s red glow, they watched the burning of the " Did Barracks. " around which so manv ])leasant memories clustered. When the fire broke out a call was sent to Washington for aid. and had the firemen been abl e to get their engine ofi " the car at College Park, the " Old Bar- racks " would probably have been saved. More than one thread of good fortune was woven through the whole un- happy disaster. ' e shudder to think what might have been the result had it occurred with the barracks full of Cadets at 2 A. ] I.. instead of 10.30 P. M. With a few exceptions, no lives were endangered. One Cadet had retired, and when awakened, had to leave his room by the window : another was cut off from retreat while fighting the fire from the chapel roof, and was obliged to lower himself by looping his fire hose around ,a ventilator and lowering him- self on it; several were overcome by smoke, and one or two had very sore shoulders as a result of breaking open doors. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 101 Mail)- instances of personal self-sacrifice and praise-worth}- action could doulH- less be recounted, but we pass them all by in our enthusiasm occasioned by the noble work and indefatigable efiforts of all. But it would be rude, indeed, to conclude this short description without at least a passing tribute to our fair guests. Never was there a more nervy bunch of girls. The cool manner in which they received the intelligence of the fire, the heroic way in which they helped to save our belongings will go down in the history of old M. A. C, and in the memory of us all never to be forgotten. No praise can be too high, no tribute can be too great for them. It was now necessary to gather the scattered trunks, furniture, clothing, etc., together so that it could be guarded until morning and then stored away until identified by the absent owners, since in all only about 35 or 40 Cadets were present. The rest of the night was spent in this work. Day dawned, and blackened ruins were all that was left of what had so lately been the scene of merriment and pleasure. The walls of the Administration Building had crumbled and fallen ; but those of the old building still pointed sky- w.ard, a proud monument of the skill and workmanship of an earlier day. The barracks were gone. That stern reality now forced itself upon us all ; but many sweet memories still linger of the happy days spent there. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 103 To the Barracks.

As is the case with all colleges when they decide to abandon the old method of hiring their athletes, and adopt the more honorable system of playing on their teams only bona-fide students, so M. A. C. has for years been laboring under difficulties in her athletic competition with other colleges. So great have been these difficulties that at times it seemed as though our ath- letics could not possibly survive. At these times, however, the old and famous M. A. C. spirit came to the front and, either by an additional appropriation for equ ipment on the part of the board of trustees or by the services of .some of the Alumni l:)eing offered as coach, we have managed to get over the rough places. Within the last few years, however, a decided improvement has been noticed in all branches of our sports, and we feel confident that this is to continue. Last year our football team lost but one game ; the baseball team is making a record that is to be envied by any college of our class ; the lacrosse team, while it has not won many of its games, is making anything but a poor showing for a team that has wholly inadequate training facilities. As for basketball, who can say that we have not had a successful season? In the indoor meets in Wash- ington last winter the relay team defeated St. John ' s and Western Maryland in good style. Thus a cursory review of the contests of the last year will show to the most prejudiced that the athletics of old M. A. C. are indeed " looking up. " The crying need of this institution, now that we have secured the services of a most excellent coach, is a gyinnasiiiiii. No college, no matter how willing her athletes may be to work under adverse circumstances, can hope to have winning teams without a gynmasium. It is a physical impossibility for a man to give the best he has in him to a team when playing in a game, if he is not taken care of ofif of the field. But it is rumored that we are to have a gym very soon. If this report is true, now that we have the athletes, the coach and a loyal student body, the outlook upon future athletics indeed assumes a rosy hue. o U H MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 111 Athletic Association.

Williams, Manager Basehall H. S. Koehler, Manager Lacrosse M. B. Mayfield, Manager Tennis E. E. Powell H. C. Byrd. Mr. H. C. Byrd, otherwise known as " Curl}, " Assistant Manager of Athletics, Assistant in English Instruction and general coach of athletic teams at the Mary- land Agricultural College, was born in Crisfield, Maryland, twenty-four years ago. Twenty years of that time has been spent in the study and practice of all athletic sports, from playing " hookey, " " as a kid at school, to playing football, baseball, and the " races, " with some of the fastest amateur teams the country has produced. Mr. Byrd was a student at ? I. A. C. from 1905 to 1908, and during that time excelled in every form of athletics to be found at the college. He was a star on the football and baseball teams, won medals as a runner, and played the best game of tennis in the school. After his graduation here Mr. Byrd studied literature at the George Washing- ton University, and while there developed the greatest football eleven they had ever had. After leaving them he studied journalism at Western Maryland Col- lege, and accepted a responsible position with the Washington Star. Although giving adequate time to his work at the college, he is still connected with the Star, and finds time to write most of the amateur athletic news for that paper. Since accepting the position here, Mr. Byrd has won the friendship and good will of both the faculty and the student body. He has absolutely refuted the idea that an athlete must necessarily be something of a tough, for the college does not have on its entire stafif a more refined, courteous and genial gentleman than " Curly " Byrd. As to Mr. Byrd " s ability as a coach, the splendid results of our athletic teams speak more elocjuently than words could possibly do. May M. A. C. long continue to have his services as coach, and her athletics will surely prosper. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 113 We. Ael Ikq-mMCKQ Jo 5HO-W- Our Te£TK What is more inspiring- than to see a nioleskin-clad warrior tearing down the field in i nrsuit of a coveted touchdown? This year our football team was crowned with highest success. To be sure, we lost to our bitterest rival, St. John ' s, but this was the only game lost during the whole season. We opened our season in Richmond, against Richmond College. No, it was not exactly a walk-away, although we did score forty-six points while Richmond College only gained first down once. In this game Shipley, our star quarter- back, sprained his ankle. Knode then took his place, playing quarter in every game except the last two when Shipley returned. Then followed the Hopkins game, which we won by a score of 13 to o. Imagine the joy in our midst when proud Hopkins was forced to lower her colors. But still our winning streak was unbroken. The next week the University of Mary- land received a trouncing to the tune of 58 to 6. But here our onward march was temporarily halted. The reason? Here it is! St. John ' s, 28; M. A. C, o. This, however, was the only break in ,a successful season. Gallaudet then met defeat at our hand, 13 to 6. x fter Gallaudet the march led to Westminster. Western Maryland boasted of not having lost a game on her home grounds in eight years. Did we break the record? Well. I guess! M. A. C. 17; W. M. C, 7. Our last game was on Thanksgiving Day, with P. M. C, and the result was a tie, 13 to 13. Much credit is due to Coach Byrd for this successful season. With only five men as a nucleus, " Curly " built up the best team old M. A. C. has had for years. For the future we all hold high hopes. This year we lose only one man by graduation. Koehler is certainly a valuable man, but ten men is far better to build on than five. 114 THE 1913 R EVEILLE Schedule. COLLECE Place Score M.A.C.

" Another little stunt of his is to fall on the ball every time an opposing player fumbles. But what has made " Pop " such a good center is his ability to keep the team fighting, never relenting for a moment, till the game is on ice. ' HoFF " HoFFl-XKER. Frank HotTecker, since entering M. A. C. has taken up football, much to the joy of the students and faculty members. For some time, he did not make a regular position on the team, but by 191 1 he had become one of our luost brilliant performers. He was elected captain of the 19 1 2 team, and gave the school the best football teaiu that has represented it for years. In the last game of 1911, when the team was playing a losing game, " Hoft " ' ' grabbed the ball, and without any aid whatever from his team-mates, ran through the entire Gallaudet team for a touchdown, thereby winning the game. 116 THE 1913 REVEILLE " Country " AI( kris. Little " Willie " Morris, generally known throughout Southern college circles as " Country, " came to us from Tech. High, of Washington. We all knew he could play football, but no one ever dreamed that he was to develop into the whirlwind of a half-back that he has. It is safe to say that he has gained more ground the past season than any other half-back in the South, and the fact that he was placed on the South Atlantic team speaks for it- self. Next y ar he will captain the football team, and we expect g ' reat things of him. " Dick " White. " Dick " Wdiite, the man who is known as " Stonewall " by the men who have played against him, held down a guard position on our football team last vear. Many a time, when it looked as though the opposing team were about to crash through and spoil our plays, the specta- tors would see a mass of men suddenly piled up, and " Dick " had spilled ' em again. We are sorry, indeed, that " Dick " is contemplating leaving us this year, and it is to be hoped that he can be per- suaded to stay a couple of years more. " Xoisy " Wir-LSON. Willson is the man who is commonly known around M. A. C. as " Noisy. " But that very characteristic that gave him his name was a feature that always was heard to good advantage on the grid-iron. Willson played guard, and he and " Dick " WHiite made a pair of guards that it will be hard to duplicate when next year ' s team is made. He has never been known to lose his head on the field, and all through the last season, if one man on the team could be depended on to be " playing the game, " that man was Willson. S1. A. C. gives him up with sin- cere regret. u J H o o 118 THE 1913 REVEILLE " WAL.TT.R. OHnso: At the conclusion of the basketball season, all eyes were turned toward the baseball candidates, who were practicing every afternoon in the gym. At iirst the prosi)ects were not very promising for a, winning team, but by the time the men were able to get outside, some of them began to show big league form. The work outside was seriously handicapped by wet weather, so that when we went over to ])la}- the Xavy, we had had but one line-up, and Hoffecker, who went to the mound, had not had a good work-out. That Navy game will never be forgotten by those who witnessed it, Hoffecker pitching air-tight ball, and backed up by an inf eld which was playing in big league style, defeated the Sailors, 3 to 2, the winning tally being registered in our half of the ninth inning when " Country " Morris knocked a homer. That was the opening game of the season, and the team set a pace that it has maintained wonderfully well ever since. During Easter vacation they defeated Richmond College and Mt. St. Jose])h " s, and lost to Catholic University, a team which has played bang-up baseball all season. The Georgetown game was lost, 5-1, our team playing far below standard. The strong teams of Rock Hill, Richmond College, Johns Hopkins and Gallau- det were next met and defeated decisively, our men outplaying them in every stage of the game. In the Hopkins game, Knode and Hoffecker distinguished themselves by getting homers off Piefer, the crack pitcher of Hopkins. The St. John ' s game resulted in a very hard-fought affair, in which we came off with the long end of the score. The work of the team as a whole, stamps it as the best team M. A. C. has had for years, and thus far we have yet to be defeated by a State team. Let us hope that we can finish the season with no more defeats.

" Pete " is known all over the State as M. . . C. ' s clever little infielder. Not only is he a versatile player, holding down all positions on the team, except possibly the battery position, eqnally well, but he is always playing a hard game. More than once he has literally pulled a game out of the fire by his good head-work. In his Freshman year, he played third base, and since then has been constantly on the job. This year he has captained the best team we have had for years, and it is owing to him and his fighting spirit that we have piled up our scores. " Hoff " Hoffecker x ' For three years " HoiT " has been the main- ladi stay of our pitching department, and this year 1 he has had a better season than ever before. I When a man can go on the mound against a team such as Navy had this year, and with- out having played in a game previous to the contest, hold them to two runs, thereby win- ning the game, he proves himself to be above the average. In his Freshman year he was ])ut in the box time and time again when the game was already lost, but he never complained, and is noted for his willingness. That is the kind of stuiTt " all good college athletes are made of, and " Hoff " stands out as an example. 14 H pq 122 THE 1913 REVEILLE A Girl ' s First Baseball Game. (Told by hi:r Brother.) Sav. Jack, did you ever take a girl to a baseball game? Cause if you baveu ' t. then don ' t. I always did tbink a girl was an awfully big goose, anyhow, and now I ' m dead sure of it. Just lemme tell you about it, and you sure will agree with me. You know they had a game on the campus the other day, and Sister ' s fellow was going to play, so she got me to take her down— said she ' d pay for me, and get me a box of candy, so I thought that was a dead cinch. Well, honest, the way she went on was something fierce. Time she got to the grandstand (no. she wouldn ' t sit on the bleachers) she saw a lot of the girls, and of course she had to run over and kiss them all around. And then nothing would do but that she must sit by them, " so she could talk, " as if she didn ' t do that everywhere all the time. So we squeezed in, and she sorter puffed out her hair and powdered her nose, and shoved her hat down a little more over her eyes, and began to chatter and giggle — though that ' s a chronic state of affairs with her. " Oh, girls, " do look at that man! " was the first thing she said. " What has he got that funnv little thing over his face for? It looks like a wire dish cover! " " I reckon that ' s to keep the dust out of his eyes. " remarked one of the girls, wisely. " Or maybe flies or mosquitoes, " giggled another. " How funny! Now what is that man standing in the middle of the court? " " That ' s not a tennis court. Sis, " I managed to get in. " It ' s called the diamond, and that man is the pitcher. " Sister giggled (of course), and said, " Well, I reckon he must get his name from the old saying, ' Little pitchers have big ears, ' for he certainly has got most awfully big ones. " Well. Jack, I nearly fainted, and then somebody a,sked, " Tom, where ' s the fom-th base? " and Miss Maud said, " Why don ' t the umpire play? He just walks around and looks at the people, and it don ' t seem fair. " Just then the umpire called out, " One strike ! " and, honest, all those silly girls got just as nervous and fidgety, and said. " Oh, goodness. I ' m so scared! Is anybody hurt? " " Who ' d he strike? " " Do you reckon the ball could come over and hit any of us? " And all that kind of stuff. I said. " Just see how he muffed that ball ! " and I give you my word. Miss Anne said. " Why, where ' s any muff? He ' s got on gloves, and just one at that! " Well, I left Sis to get home with the bunch and beat it— candy or no candy. Believe me, kid, girls are pretty nice at parties, but don ' t you ever take one to a baseball game. L. B. S. 124 THE 1913 REVEILLE Our track team has just completed one of the most successful seasons it has ever had. The season opened at the Indoor Meet held by the Fifth Regiment Athletic Association and Johns Ho])kins University, at Baltimore, on Saturday, February 15th, 1913. Our relay team was defeated 1) ' (leorge Washington University. Undaunted by ihis defeat, our team defeated St. John ' s the follow- ing Saturday in an exciting race in the Convention Hall. In this meet, om- second re]a ' team defeated the second team from lieorge -fKen ' A Washington University. In the George- town L ' niversity Indoor Meet, held at Convention Hall on March ist, our relay team again won laurels by defeating Western Maryland College. 1) ' winning this race we were entitled to the State Intercollegiate Championship. In this meet, our second relay team lost to Richmond College. Several men falling on both teams marred the race considerably. ( )n Saturday evening, March 8th, the rela ' team was pitted against Lehigh University at Richmond College Meet, held at Richmond, ' a. The second man, running on our team, was accidentally tripped by the Lehigh runner, and lost about 30 yards, which the other members of the team were not al)le to make up. The Third Annual Intercollegiate and Interscholastic Track and Field Meet was held on the athletic field at M. A. C. on Saturday afternoon. May 3, 1913. There were about 250 contestants and over 800 entries. It was the largest ? leet ever held in the South. St. John ' s College won the Intercollegiate Champion.ship, M. A. C. being second and Western Maryl and College third. In the Interscholastic Meet, Cen- tral and Western High Schools of Washington, I). C, tied for first honors. Wicomico County High School won in the county school division. When we consider that our track team this year was comi)Osed of young and inexperienced men, and our Relay Team in most of the races being composed entirely of Frcshiiicii. we cannot hel]) but ])redict in a few ' ears we should have one of the best track teams in this section. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 125 ' " First Relay Team Second Relay Team 126 THE 1913 REVEILLE Lacrosse. The spring of 1910 marked the birth of Lacrosse at I I. A. C. The team started with but one experienced player, E. E. Powell. He has had the team in hand for the last three years, acting as Captain and Coach. This vear the team is seen at its best. Although we lacked several men from last year ' s team, we received some miglity promising new material. Although the majority of scoring has not been on our side this year, we are not to be blamed. The colleges and universities that we have competed with all have sea- soned teams and are out of our class. The schedule o])ened with a game at Carlisle, Pa. We were downed by the score of 8 to i. The Indians had an exceedingly good team. We next encountered Harvard at College Park. Here the visitors, by fast and clever stick work, shot 12 goals. This same team beat the Navy and gave Johns Hopkins University a hard-fought-for game. The Harvard coach was greatly surprised at our skill with the stick. He expressed a desire for men like ours at Harva rd to ])lay Lacrosse. This shows the material that we have on our team. Baltimore City College was next met on our field. It was the most exciting game from the start to the finish. In the first few minutes of play M. A. C. carried the ball down the field for a goal. B. C. C. turned the tables on us in the next half. Although two extra periods of ten minutes each were played, the score remained i to i. During this game M. A. C. showed what it could do. The team work was carried out smoothly and the men handled the stick at their best. The boys showed the result of hard coaching and much practice. We still have several games left to be played, and from the present outlook we will finish the season in good shape. We still have Mt. Washington, Baltimore Polytechnic Institute, Walbrook Athletic Club and University of Pennsylvania to meet. Although AI. A. C. has not produced a Championship Lacrosse team, it is one that we are proud of. It has done noble work. It has put us in touch with some of the large colleges, and it is making our college known. Do not let Lacrosse drop. The game has just gotten on its feet here, and there is no reason why it should not. in the course of time, become as strong as baseball or football.

' Peck " Davis is one of the men who helped estabhsh the game of Lacrosse in this institution. For three years and a half, " Peck " played an excellent game at goal, and about the middle of this season he was changed to cover point, and in that position he covered himself with glory. It is to be re- gretted that the Lacrosse team is to lose such a capable per- former, but " Peck " is to graduate in Tnne. " EnniK " PowF.r.L. " Eddie " Powell, who helped establish Lacrosse at INL A. C. four years ago, is the man whom the team has reall - been built around during this time. Not only is " Eddie " a brilliant per- former on the field, but he is an excellent coach, and has done duty in that capacity ever since the game was introduced here. In matters such as getting funds to run the team, " Eddie " has always been heard arguing for the good of the team, and as captain in i()io, 191 1, 1912, 1913, he has, by his own efforts, kept the sport from dying out. When " Eddie " leaves us in June, the team will sustain a loss that will be felt for some time to come. " Sox " Trimult-:. Since the spring of iQiQ, when Lacrosse was first introduced at AI. A. C, " Sox " has been more or less intere.sted in it, but it has not been imtil the past two years that he has put forth a real effort to demonstrate what a classy Lacrosse player he reallv is. But since that time, " Terrible " Trimble is a name that has become well-known among the players of every team we have played in that time. " Sox " is not a man who has " off days " — he is a man who always stars, and one who will be sadlv missed when next vear ' s team is formed. 130 THE 1913 REVEILLE Tennis. Tennis lias never been fostered by the colle.s e as a reqnlar sport at M. A. C, l)nt still a lively interest is shown in the annual tournament, which is held each 3-car in June. The courts were cleaned and ] )ut in s ' ood condition earlv this vear, and from the present enthusiasm which is shown by the numljer who reported for practice, the tournament promises to surpass all previous ones. Tennis, which is beino- pla -ed hy all collei:i " es now, should be given the proper support of our athletic council, so that matches could be i)la} ' ed with other col- leges as in other sports. It is hoped that this will be the case in future years. The tournament last year was a big success. After man ' hard-fought games. V ' ogie and Powell landed in the finals. Powell succeeded by hard drives and close net-work to down his op]:)onent, and thereby won the gold medal, while Vogle received a silver medal as the second ])rize.

Xot quite two years ago the cry from all the State, including our own alumni, went up that M. A. C. Athletics were going back : that they were not holding their own with the other colleges of Maryland. It was a very serious proposition that faced us then, and what seemed even more serious was a feasible plan tor the solution. r)Ut such solution came in the system of graduate coaching and managing. All M. A. Caesars will not forget several humiliating defeats in football handed to us by our neighboring colleges in i()i i. We had what seemed two more defeats before us, when Coach H. C. Ryrd, Alumnus and Ex-M. A. C. athletic star, pulled us out of our difficulty. With such assiduity did he tackle his job that we not only won our games, but showed up so well as to have been considered one of the best elevens of the year. We had no better material perhaps than we had in pre- ceding years. All that was needed was the proper development of what material we did have. Our football season of igi2 was started with practicall - all new men. ' eterans Koehler, Hoffecker, Williams, E. P., Johnson and Boland. Around these men Curley built up as fine a football team as ever chased a pigskin at M. A. C. We lost, it is true, to our old rival, St. John ' s, but with all that, it was a most creditable aggregation. Wq are now in the midst of our baseball season. Of the fourteen games played up to this date, we have won twelve and lost two. This is indeed a remarkable showing, and, what is still more, we have annexed the State Cham- pionship to our credit. Graduate coaching again made itself very desirable, as evidenced by our team ' s showing at our annual Track meet. Coach l vrd turned out a track team which went far beyond the wildest hopes of us all, and, what is more, our prospects are very bright. Football games with Cornell, Georgetown and irginia are j ending, while in baseball such teams as stand for the best in the north and south will be met. Practically, our entire football team returns next year, and with new blood should have a winning aggregation. C)ur baseball team, as it now stands, has but two upper class men, insuring another winner. Track will see this year ' s team entire with several prep, stars who have declared their intentions of matriculating next fall. Can the prospects be brighter? The answer is no. With " Curley " IWrd at the helm and all M. A. C. men working hard, nothing but victory can attend our wav. 134 THE 1913 REVEILLE Commencement Exercises June, 1912. " Hello! " exclaimed the old grad.. as he returned for one more commencement at the college on the hill. " What ' s all this on the quadrangle? " And well he might exclaim, for what he had fully expected to see, the beautiful lawn and tall shade trees, were still there. But what astounded him was the fact that in front of the gym. a temporary stage had been erected. In front of this dozens of rows of chairs, and arranged in a semicircle, back of the chairs, were the bleachers from the athletic field. All were so arranged that the - were entirely in the shade. The old grad. found a seat and, with a sigh of perfect contentment, inquired who had discovered this ideal method of holding our Commencement exercises. The idea originated in the President ' s office, and to the man whose foresight and intelligence, brought forward this scheme, we owe an everlasting debt of grati- tude. Instead of sweltering in the college auditorium, our visitors and students were able to enjoy throughly the entire program. The program was one of the finest we have ever had, and was still further enlivened by the excellent music furnished bv the orchestra. in After Years When the silver moon comes over the trees, And the light grows dim; AVhen you want to cough and can only sneeze. And the skeeters bite like sin; Wihen the hammock rope is busted. And your girl isn ' t there, When the piano isin ' t dusted, And life is full of care; Then, Agricultural Student, I think you ' ll say with me, That the best little place in all this world, Was good old M. A. C. When the heat in your oven goes down by degrees, And the fire won ' t light; When you ' ve upset the lard pail — are covered with grease, And your kitchen ' s a sight; When the bread in the oven simply won ' t bake, And the baby howls and yells, When you ' ve had no luck, and spoiled a cake, And your tears would fill big wells; Then, little Short Course Maiden, I think you ' ll say with me. That the best little place in all this world. Was good old M. A. C. M. C. M. 138 THE 1913 REVEILLE Rossbourg Club. Founded away back in those days when the square dance was the order of the day, the Rossbourg Ckib has Hved and prospered to these days of the turkey trot and tango. However, w ' ith the modern (?) dances going on all around, the Rossbourg hops have always been free from the turkey trot. Never has a Rossbourg hop been of such character as to warrant a slanderous article in the newspapers. What: would life at college be without the livening influence of an occasional dance? Surely college would be a dull place if it were all work and no play. Therein lies the reason for the Rossbourg Club. What an outlet of excess spirits we have there ! Relaxation for the plodder ; ambition-awakener for the lazy man ; and so, the dance serves a purpose in every man ' s life. But to give an unsuccessful dance is worse than giving no dance at all. Dame Fortune has smiled on us and made all our social activities successful. An invi- tation to an M. A. C. dance is a much-sought-for honor, and greatly are the recipients of such invitations envied. Let us take a glim]:)se at the ballroom on an evening when the Goddess of the Dance reigns suprenie. The monotonous white walls are relieved by many colored banners. The glaring lights are shaded with soft colored lanterns, while from behind a row of palms the orchestra pours forth the strains of a soul-stirring waltz. But let not your glance rest too long on our decorations ; nor let yourself be carried away by the sweet music. They are all very pretty, but how empty, they would be were it not for the beautiful gowns, dainty perfume, sparkling eyes and vivacious laughter of our fair guests. Surely the sight is one to Ciuicken the pulses of a hemit ! How much the success of our club is due to those fair ones ! Such a scene was taking place on the memorable evening of November 29th, 1913, when that demon. Fire, attacked the college. In the twinkling of an eye the gay scene was changed to one of horror. Then did that spirit of chivalry, born in every M. A. Caesar, show itself. Not a man stirred until every woman was safe. Soon, what had but a few hours before been the scene of social happiness, was but a smouldering mass of ruins. Gaze on the accompanying cut, and weep with us as we mourn our loss. In that picture you see all that is left of that place where music and the dance held sway. But though we were deprived of our ballroom, the Rossbourg Club was not forced to shut up shop. Through the kindness of the Engineering Department, our next dance was held in the drawing-room. Though not as comfortable as our former ballroom, all that was lacking was made up for in good will and a hearty reception. No one seemed to enjoy the dance less because it was held in an improvised ballroom. Then the Trustees came to our rescue, and soon we had a temporary dance hall. In this the Rossbourg Club finished its schedule of dances. Now we are all looking to the new M. A. C. which will rise from the ruins of the old. There we hope to see the Rossbourg Club in even better quarters than before the night we were visited by fire. As the old Rossbourg Club has prospered in the past, so we hope to see it prosper in the future. " On with the dance! Let joy be unconfined ! " MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 139 A Kiss. My love has eyes of softest blue; To her I ' ll evermore be true, And when she whispers, " I love you, What can I do but — this? So cynics and old maids, beware. You think you are as free as air. When Cupid has his quiver there, There ' s danger in a kiss. L. B. S. 140 THE 1913 REVEILLE If. If you can go to bed at half-past one, And yet get up in time for Reveille, If you can still hold on, the end half won. Though never yours the victory may be; If you can force yourself to burn the oil Which sages and old pedagogues pronounce To be the best, when over midnight toil, Your energy is used up, ounce by ounce; If you can be on time at each formation, Though thousands block your way and keep you back; If you accustom self to regulation Of which there never yet has been a lack; If neither loud nor harsh commands disturb you, As on your way you hurry to and fro, If all that Commy says can only spur you To efforts that no mortals e ' er can know; If you can take a stick without a murmur. Although the other fellow was to blame, If punishment you bear without a jquirmer. And always come back smiling just the same; If vou can put a one before the naught Which often has put glorious plans to rout. And turn a failure, as you really ought. To glorious triumph, so you don ' t flunk out; If Sr.phomore ridicule, received as Freshmen, Don ' t make you sore nor don ' t outdo your grit. If pranks, as Sophomores, you play on the Fre=hmen, Don ' t get you into trouble, not one bit; If Junior plug don ' t faze you for a minute, Nor Senior cram to get your Thesis done. Then — M. A.

Williams l icc-Prcsldcnt E. W. Blxsox Secretary W. E. Harrison Treasurer " The Bible is one Ijook that no intelHgent person can atTortl to be ignorant of. It is not at all a qnestion of religion or theology or dogma ; it is a question of general intelligence. " W ' c need only look around us a little in order to verify the truth of this statement, (io to your library and take down the masterpieces of the great authors, men who have really gotten the best out of life that there is in it, and see how full they are of quotations, figures and idioms taken from the English IHljle. It matters not whether the author be a writer of poetry or prose; whether he be English or American, you find him appealing to the hearts and minds of people by reference to the great book of books. Go to the art gallery and look at the masterpieces of our greatest artists and painters and see for yourself how many of them owe their origin to its inspiration. We need not go that far. It has affected men in all positions, the low as well as the high. Realizing the value of the Bible as a guide in the every-day walks of life, the students in this institution many years ago established a Young Men ' s Christian Association, which has always been an important factor in college life. The work of the Association began this year in a most promising manner. The whole student body and members of the faculty, with their wives, attended the reception which was given to the new students. A general and widespread interest was awakened by the Sunday-night meetings, at which well-known speakers gave a good practical talk on religious topics. Among the most promising speakers were : Mr. Knowles Cooper, General Secretary of the Y. M. C. A. at Washing- ton, D. C. ; Hon. W. M. Hays, Assistant Secretary of Agriculture; Dr. Sing Man Rhee ; Dr. J. I. Hall ; Dr. W. E. Miller, and many others too numerous to mention. A special feature of the work was a Bible class taught by Dr. M. E. Miller, which met each week. Unfortunately, the fire which came in November seriously interrupted what promised to be a banner year for the Y. M. C. A. All are looking forward with great hope and expectation to the coming scholastic year and to the time when along with new donations, gymnasium, etc., M. A. C. shall have a Y. M. C. A. building of her own. 142 THE 1913 REVEILLE Triangle. Staff. AT. E. Davis. " 13 llditor J. B. Gray, ' 14 hinior llditor H. S. Ford, ' 14 Junior Editor D. L. Johnson, ' 14. . Junior Editor W. E.

The team representing the coHege, the result of whose competition is i)robal)l ' more far-reaching than any other, is not an athletic team. It is the Stock-Judging Team. Each fall, in Chicago, there is a National Dairy Show, held in the Dairy Build- ing, out in Packingtown. The directors of this show ask all Agricultural Col- leges to send teams of three men to compete in a mammoth judging contest. Men preparing for this contest usually work two or three years with that end in view, although it is sometimes necessary to send men who have not had so much ])reparation. At this show the men are brought into contact with the best breeders, the most prominent teachers of x nimal Husbandry, men from numbers of other colleges, and judge the best-bred cattle in the country. The contest in 19 12 took place on October 28th, a day never to be forgotten by those who took part in it. After an early breakfast we went out to Packing- town all ready for what was before us. There were fourteen colleges competing, making a total of forty-three men. We were divided into three squads, in charge of a man whose duty it was to see that absolutely no conversation took place, and that each group remained together. There were two rings of four cattle in the pavilion all the time, and each squad was taken to look them over and make notes on their perfections and imperfections. After doing this for fifteen minutes, we were taken to a room, and allowed to remain fifteen minutes to write up our reasons for so placing the animals. The breeds of dairy cattle judged were Holsteins, Guernseys, Jerseys and Ayrshires. Each breed had a ring of l)ulls and one of cows, and it took half an hour to dispose of each ring. We started to work at about nine A. ] 1., and didn ' t finish till nearly five P. M. In all th at time, not one word was exchanged between the men in competition. (This excludes women). The results of this contest are published all over the United States, and a man winning anything is brought before the public in such a way that it benefits the school and individual to a very great extent. The Breeders " Association of the four breeds represented give either a $400.00 scholarship or a cash prize to the man standing first in the judging of their breeds. Besides these, there was a sweepstake prize given to the man having the highest individual average. Nebraska captured the much-coveted trophy, a silver cup, awarded the team making the highest score. The Agricultural Colleges of the following States were represented : Delaware. New York, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Michigan, Iowa, Ohio, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota, Idaho, Maryland. This year we went in defeat, along with a number of other colleges, and did not win a prize. But the value of the preparation for the contest and the experi- ence in the ring cannot be overestimated. I believe that the men who partici- pated would not let anything stand in the way of another such trip. Stock-Judging Team 146 THE 1913 REVEILLE New Mercer Literary Society. Like every college, our Alilia Mater has in her midst a number of men who are inclined to wax eloquent at the slightest provocation. Such men find an outlet for their oratorical inclinations in our literary societies. In earlv winter, the New Mercer Society held its first meeting. At this meet- ing there were no oratorical fireworks cut loose to astonish the multitude, but the evening was devoted to organizing the Society. Who should be President, and lead the Society to glory by the debate route? was a question which needed much attention. The discussion waxed warm, and it was found necessary to apply cold water in order to restore several men to consciousness. i t last it was decided that there was only one man deserving of the honor. This was that talented and eloquent cadet — Leonarde De Vincentes. Having thus organized, the Societ}- started out on its career of debating and declamation. Enthusiasm never waned and at every meeting the hall was packed. No trouble was experienced in obtaining speakers for every meeting. In fact, it was found necessary to establish a waiting-list containing the names of the manv eager applicants. In the course of the year many important questions were discussed bv the members. Among them were: How long is a string? Wh - is a duck? And that old, l)ut always interesting to]:)ic. How old was Ann? Put on your old gray bonnet, With M. A. C. upon it, Hook on your side-arms, Take your gun, And we ' ll go out on the campus. And we ' ll have a little rampus, With Commy ' s double-time run. MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE 147 Morrill Literary Society. A ' hat qoocl is an education if one cannot express his ideas? This thotig ' ht was iiljpermost in the minds of a sturdy Ijand of M. A. Caesars when they or ' anized the Morrill Literary Societv. Soon there sprang " up in our midst one who rivaled JMark . ntony, or the now famous Patrick Henry. Following the usual routine, the first meeting was devoted to organizing. After much dehate a man worth ' to head such an august body was selected. The only logical man for this place was our able orator. Cadet Levin. At first the weekly debates of the Morrill Society were not very well attended. The far-famed el( f]uence of the Xew l [ercerites was drawing the crowd to its hall. Realizing that there was as much eloquence in the Morrill as in the Xew Mercer, steps were taken to advertise the fact. A debate was arranged which would attract the attention of everyone in the college. The subject was, " Resolved, That Military Training Is r)eneficial to all College Students. " Affirmative, Led- num, R. C. Coster; Negative, Koehler, Ames. On the night of the much-heralded debate the hall was packed. Every seat and ever - inch of standing room was occupied. This was the beginning of good things for the [Morrill Society. From that time the two societies had about an equal attendance. 148 THE 1913 REVEILLE Engineering Society. ( )l-l " irF,RS. President R. S. Healy. ' icc-Prcsidciit E. P. Williams. Secretary M. E. Davis. Treasurer H. S. Ford. For the first time in a .qood many years .!. A. C. has had a society devoted to eno-ineerin,g- interests. The society was ort anized in ( )ctoher. 1912, l)y a numher of Senior students, who heheved that a more oeneral interest in engineer- ing- work was needed among the technical men. I ' rom the first, the innovation proved successfuh and man - interesting lectrires were dehvered by members of the engineering facult ' and bv practicing engineers, well known throughout the State. The main feature (if the organization, however, is not the lectures, but rather the talks given b - the students, at least one member giving an address every meeting. This system has provided an opportunity for the embryo engi- neer to get up before an audience of his peers and deliver his own ideas in regard to technical matters, and it is to provide this chance that the society exists. Prof. RulTner — (to " Xitz " )— Le Savoy, do me a favor, will you? Xitz — Surely, Professor. Prof. Ruffner — Go open that window. (Nitz opens the window.) Prof. Ruffner— Now fall out!

We ' re tired of ( " . R ' s oration Rising merely for new information: The way he wastes time Is a sin and a crime — V liat he says may be worth emulation. We ' re tired of J. B. S. X., And his trips over woodland glen; Always fiddling around New ideas to expound, To Botany there is no end. We ' re tired of Doctor H. T. Professor and Dean of C.
