We trust that our work as typified in this volume will seem worthy of the aid and interest that you have bestowed upon us. We have endeavored to put out a year-book in keeping with the greater interests of M. A. C. In it we have set forth the activities of the year- some seri ous, some otherwise. To preserve col- lege tradition, to enhance college spirit, and to put in a permanent form the surroundings of a college career, have been our aims. Lest the book appear dry, we have tried to include in it a strain of humor, so do not take too seriously the knocks that are made in jest. Trusting that in future years this volume will serve to carry the reader ' s mind back through the intervening mists of passing years to the pleasant days when, within the walls of M. A. C, we shared each other ' s joys and sorrows, we leave with keen regret the atmosphere that, for the past four years, has been so near and dear to us. 1 w To a cultured gentleman, an able professor, and a good fellow, whose association with the students of M. A. C. has made him admired for his true worth, respected for his ability as a professor, and appreciated as a friend; and who has gladly given his best efforts to con- tribute to the development of M. A. C, as a token of our respect and esteem we dedicate the seventeenth volume of the Keveille. f % ' A C i m - t iy -ti . 0 cs,(q:) c c -; -i.™. ' -ta ,« « «?

In past years we have never lacked of loyal support from both the older and younger members of the Alumni organization, but it has only been more recently that the Association has felt its responsibility in directing broader development of the Institution. Their annual and semi-annual meetings have more and more become not only times for good fellowship and pleasant reminiscenses, but an occasion for the serious consideration of the afifairs of the College as well. We have never at the J I. A. C. had t he athletic facilities to which we are entitled. We have produced winning teams in spite of conditions rather than because of them. Through the combination of good material and first-class coaching we have produced from time to time, as in the past fall, championship teams that have reflected no little credit on the Institution. It was with the idea of encouraging as much as possible our athletic efforts, as well as giving the institution the full benefit of the advertisement that successful teams give a college that the Alumni took it upon themselves to inaugurate the May Interscholastic Track Meet in 1910. Financed in part by the Alumni, and in part by the Trustees, this Meet has become established as an annual feature. In the recent camipaign of the College for a greater institution equipped for a far wider sphere of usefulness, the Alumni organzition, in arousing favorable interest and in meeting adverse criticism, has been the backbone of the fight for the Greater M. A. C. Thanks to the able leadership of Henry Holzapfel, President of the Association, and to W. W. Skinner, Chairman of the Legislative Committee, every county in the State organized its M. A. C. Booster Organization and rendered effective work in pledging legislators to the appro- priation and in securing substantial backing from leading citizens. In every case where the opposition could be genuinely enlightened as to the scope of the work of the College and the part it is fitted to play in the life of the state, but little an- tagonism to Its proper endowment remained. The results obtained in even the brief time allowed suggest that possibly a permanent organization of these local committees into M. A. C. Welfare Associations, which should find time to meet to discuss means of advancing the interests of the Institution and be prepared to act in their support on short notice, would be most desirable. This would undoubtedly place an additional burden on the Secretary or Chairman of the 14 MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. K- J . . •- " ■ General Committee, but the time is fast approaching when the College cannot well afford to be without a vigorous and well organized Alumni body supporting it. To handle such work efficiently requires so m uch time and energy that no matter how anxious a man may be to serve the interests of the Association and his College he cannot well afford to spare the time from his own private business to handle such a State-wide organization as is proposed. It would seem wise on the part of both the College and its Alumni Association to provide in the near future for an organization secretary, who should, in part, at least, be paid for the doing of such work in a thorough manner and without sacrificing too much of his individual time and pleasure to accomplish permanent results. This naturally leads to the need for an Alumni Hall or Home on or adjoining the College campus. At the present writing we have under cnnsideralion the erection of an Athletic Clubhouse, where our teams may be lodged and trained under stricter supervision. It would seem fitting that the Alumni Association be prime movers in erecting such a building, and that it might well be so planned as to provide additional rooms for the use of resident and visiting alumni. We have always lacked at the College just such accommodations as this building would provide ; especially, since the passing of the old barracks, and the older members of the Alumni Association cannot fail to feel less at home among the new surroundings and landmarks that the next few years will bring forth. A comfortable Alumni building, serving both the purpose of an Athletic Clubhouse and an AlumiUi Hall, has the double advantage of serving two most desirable needs. The M. A. C. looks even more than in the past to the active support of its Alumni for its future development and usefulness throughout the State. It has reached that period in its history when the organization of its Alumni into live and influential local associations seems both logical and imperative in their own interest as well as that of the Institution. The aid which the Alumni have given their Alma Mater in the recent campaign for adequate appropriation shows both the need and the usefulness of such organizations. Whether this work justifies the employment of a paid organization secretary strictly in the business interests of the Institution and its graduates depends upon the development of the field before us. That such a secretary could also have charge of an employment bureau for graduates, as is customary with many institutions, is another feature that cannot be overlooked. There is a natural tendency among our successful graduates to turn to their college for additions to their working force. A bureau of this nature, with its office in an Alumni Hall and in intimate touch with the work and location of every graduate, would do far more toward cementing the interests of the College and its Alumni than any other agency. Wc need to put our slogan of a Greater M. A. C. on its most effective basis — permanent or- ganization and permanent benefit. 15 I % It REVEILLE BOARD Porous t ' fius.Ka REVEILLE BOARD No doubt there met your vision, When first ye ope ' d this book, A 2:roup of careworn faces With serious, somber look.

This cut on the left is the truest result of eight sittings — the combined efforts of the photographer and " Josie. " Considered from an artistic print of view it is faultless, but from the standpoint of a casual observer it is merely " J. 15. Coster. " Joseph was once heard to say, in his unpolished, unpruned, unlettered, uncultured, unsophisticated, uncivilized fashion (he ' s from Solomon ' s Island) that it was a toss-up whether he became an oysterman or an M. A. Caesar. In him, though, we have today, a type of one dear to the hearts of the fair sex, whose winning ways, coy manners and captivating smiles have a marvelous effect. He has an amiable disposition, his anger being aroused onlv wdien one fails to talk about his " Marcel Waves. " He was always a dark horse on exams, but never failed to get on the right side of either seventy per cent, or the " Prof. " He is not over-fond of work, and w ould rather believe what the text book says than labor over it. Speaking of football, that ' s where Joe shines ( ?) the brightest, excepting perhaps as a fusser. This he is beyond a doubt, for of the three nights we have off during the week he spends three with the ladies. He said that he expected to settle down to one in his Senior year, and we notice that he has lived up to his expectation, for now he has only one in each of the towns of Hyattsville, Washington. Baltim:ore, Solomon ' s, Prince Frederick and College Park. By the way, it must not be forgotten that he is one of " Cats ' " best marked kittens, and is a hard man for " Sweenv " to down for the medal. 22 Principal Musician H. U. Deeley. Baltimore. Aid.

" Ez ' cvM little fish expects to become a zohalc. " Turning from the fiaxen-haired " Joe, ' " we are confronted by what seems to be a slip-up of the photographer. We will admit that it is not exactly natural, but the photographer told us that the camera absolutely refused to contort itself to a greater extent. So, we must be content with our " model, " as he is pleased to call himself. ( " Model. " you know, according to Webster, meaning " A representation in miniature. " ) Pie was born on September ii, 1896, thereby giving our metropolis a catas- trophe rivalling its fire of 1904. He migrated to the M. A. C. in the fall of 1910, and forthwith began aiding the memlbers of the faculty in teaching. (This, thru his ability to ofifer them such a broad field.) In the mJltary line, Haskin has ever been a " shining light. " His angelic face is the only one in the entire battalion that can soften " Commy ' s " heart when the latter is in a disranking mood. As a social man, Haskin is " right there. " The only fault is that, since studying about monopolies in Economics, " Shrimp " has tried to put the knowledge gained into practical application. There are many blue (colored) letters received from Windsor Hills, and the C. P. Telephone Company now wants to charge an extra for all local calls in the " Park. " When it comes to stock-judging, the " Shrim p " showed what he could do while in Chicago. On leaving the M. A. C, he expects to go to his fa ' m in Anne Arundel County and spend a few years enlightening his fellow countrymen in the art of Farming, wdiile he decides whether to be Governor of the State or United States Senator. 23 LlEUTEXANT W.

" In the Fall of 1910 there appeared on the scene a tall, broad-shouldered young man, rather handsomely attired, who, after his debut, became commonly known as " Proctor. " Anyone desiring to know the origin of this ' ' nickie " should ask the bearer, who we are sure will be delighted to present the history. " Proctor " was only in this grand institution of ours a very short time when the cause of his name (much to his gratitude) left for the P. ] l. C. Then it was that- he became Fletcherized and was known as " Billy. " Billy claims Washington as his place of abode, but he was originally trom the historical town of Alexandria, and, like the majority of those Mrginia sports, he is some ladies ' man. Bill always says, " When work and girls conflict, give up work. " Doubtless he sticks to his word, for we are sure the ' ashington Railway and Electric Company would soon be bankrupt were it not for the frecjuent patronage of Billy. Still, we don ' t believe that this is his fault, but is, as he says, that " The girls simply won ' t leave me alone. " Though Billy chose for his work here at College, Animal Husbandry, he has still another ambition : Billy is fond of all kinds of " Militarv Tactics, " and hopes some day that fortune will smile upon him with a commission in the Philippine Constabulary. Billy is verv ' changeable, too; he has recently turned his attention to " Dra- matics. " We really think he will make good, for he sure can cause laughter merely by putting in his appearance. 24 Lieutenant-Quartermaster H. S. Ford. Fairmount, Md. Ciz ' il Engineering. Sophomore Year— Corporal. Ju- nior Year — Sergeant ; Editor Tri- angle ; Treasurer, Engineering So- ciety ; Chairman Refreshment Committee on Junior Prom.

" A pretty little ape " It was a bright, clear day on the Eastern Shore. The wise men of the city of Fairmount shook their heads, and even the buzzards on the fence by the road- side moved and flapped their wings. Suddenly the still early morning air was broken by a piercing note. The people trembled and then agreed that the world was on its last lap and that it was Gabriel ' s trumpet calling. In reality it was Harry making his neighbors aware of his existence. Harry entered this College in the Fall of 1910, and took his share of " fanning ' ' with the rest of us, and, take it from, one who knows, he was some class at getting ofif jokes when he was perched on top of a table with a " persuader " waiting him when he came down. Although it ' s not known to many he is really in love and we think he will be the first one of us to say, ' T do; " But let ' s get away from the sentimental part of his life and get down to real facts. There isn ' t any one in the class that can pull down the tens like he can. And they tell me that he is a pretty good friend of " Doc " sometimes, at least, as they seem to have a mutual sense of humor. To conclude, let us say that if he finishes his thesis some time before the last of June, there is no man in the class that stands a better chance for success in life than the subi ' ect before us. 25 Lieutenant John B.

" A chip of the old block. " Say, " Prof. " , quick with that microscope. Place it over that tiny specimen, and let ' s see if we have discovered a new one. Left, did you say? Well, I should think so, — only our little Johnnie who never attained the height of the average man, but once, and then he had to be seated upon two stuffed suit cases. Let that be, Johnnie ' s size all went to his brain, fo - somehow it has been a task for the other Nineteen Fourteen boys to keep up with J. B.. Jr., in class. Leave it to him to give a record of good old Calvert County, where the prettiest girls in ] Iaryland en " Hance ' ' him and the " Bonds ' ' are strong for Johnnie. As to an orator, he cannot be surpassed, and the rest of us see the medals vanish when Johnnie declares that he is a contestant. In future days we expect to see him the leading lawyer down in Prince Frederick, and we guarantee that he will win any case put before him. Alas ! We have not yet mentioned Johnnie ' s specialty. Singing, did you say ? One of his favorite pastimes is listening to the melodious strains of his room- mate, but generally his applause is of this nature, " Gee-e-e-e-e? — whiz, shut up, please, now I know you are sick. " Here ' s hoping Johnnie will be a Daniel Webster the Second, when he begins to practice law in Southern Maryland, and in his leisure hours we expect to find him engaged in his favorite sport, tennis. 26 Robert T. Gray. Grayton, Md. Agronomy. Sophomore Year — Corporal. Junior Year — Sergeant. Senior Year — Treasurer, Rossbourg Club ; Sergeant-at-Arms, Class. " J csscls large may venture more, but little boats must keep near shore. " " Well, 1 n-e-v-r, yes, that is Bob, ' Who ' d-a-thought-it ' " ? In spite of the size of the subject under discussion, he was little heard of from his entrance at M. A. C. in 1909 until his Sophomore year. This was obviously due to the natural bashfulness of this country lad. However, in ' ii- ' i2 he was not long in asserting himself, and his presence was much " felt " by the " rats. " At one time he was even notified that he was getting too familiar with them, but he assured the accuser that it must be a mistake because he quite often felt for the " rats " when they were having trouble (and he usually found them, too). As a m ilitary man, Bob was among the first of his class, until near the close of his Junior year, when he locked horns with Commy. Although each retired in order, it has been noticed that Bob retired to civil life. During his Senior year Bob is to be seen only at his classes and at social functions. Indeed, Bob is rather inclined towards the latter. With him it is, " Never look for work that will interfere with pleasure, but if you stumble over the work, don ' t let pleasure interfere with it. " However, when it comes to a College dance Bob is right there and he is always genuinely welcome. We trust, and we believe, that Bob ' s connection with the sphere of Agriculture will be as successful as has been his affiliation with the Rossbourg Club. 27 Lieutenant- Adjutant J. W. Green.

" " Some are born great; others acquire greatness; others have greatness thrust upon them. " " Josh " was born great ; he acquired greatness ; and greatness was thrust upon him. Tlie poor fellow simply couldn ' t help it. It was not his fault. Oh, reader, just take one, long lingering look at this face, for you ' ll never see another like it. It goes by the name of Joshua Weldon Green ; but he is not green, and don ' t you believe he is. Look at the shape of his dome, and from the viewpoint of the phrenologist you will see that Weldon has in him a rare com- bination of executive ability, or the power to command, coupled with those quali- ties of benevolence and ideality which contribute to the fostering of permanent religious sentiment. His religion, by the way, is similar to that of old Greece, and his favorite God is Bacchus. He and " Ras " have worshiped at the same shrine many times in the past five years. In all his college career his greatest accomplishment has been this: all the Profs think he studies. ( ?) One sad day in his Senior year Major Daprav called him " Arabella Jones, " and poor Weldon has never looked the same since. He is an engineer with an ideal. Yep, he ' s got some ideal. The height of his ambition is to build a fire-proof bridge between our planet and Hades. He says he wants to make it easy traveling for all his classmates. This class thinks that Weldon is a mighty good sort, and wishes him all kinds of success in anything he undertakes — especially that bridge. 28 Cadet F. S. Hoffecker. Perryville, Md.

" Say, ' Cnrley, ' may I go ' home ' after the game: ' " Hoff " has a sense of humor sufficiently strong to rise above any trifling annoy- ance, such as indefinite suspension, or the like, and, after such a sentence from " Boo-Hoo, " he has been heard with his melodious laugh, or seen with those two rows of evenly set " tomb stones " showing clear across his " face. " When we first knew " Hofif, " he had a desperate case with a charming blonde in " Philly. " There seemed to come some strange difference between them, how- ever, when he came here, which he, himself, could not understand until he learned front " Mike " Creese that, for good results in the flow of substances like Magnetic Flux (or love), there must not be too much air space in the circuit. About a year ago Fr ank, while in Towson, fell suddenly in love with the " Belle " of that " metropolis, " and it wasn ' t in vain either, as any of the fellows of Tow- son will tell you that they haven ' t the ghost of a show even while " Hoff " is away. He, as I have said, suddenly fell in love. As a matter of fact he hasn ' t stopped falling yet, and seems to be gaining momentum every second. " Doc Tolly " claims that every part of this man ' s body was made to fit except his brain. After a lengthy absence from the military department, " Hoff " got permission from " Commy ' ' to drill during the winter months, that he might get the proper exercise due an athlete. Hoffecker will begin his career in Towson after graduation, and you can bet that he will not Avander far from that spot, as he is often heard saying, " It is a good thing that I am not earning a good salary of my own, I guess, " after which comes a sigh, followed of course, by the smile that can ' t be hidden. 29 Captain D.

" I am luaster of all I survey. {Especially motor boats.) " Da " e, or, as he is more commonly kno •n, " Jack " Johnson, slid unan- nounced into our midst at the beginning of our Sophomore year. At first it was impossible to tell " whence he came, ' ' for he seems as much at home on the salt marshes of the East ' n Sho ' as among the dillberry hills of Frederick. However, after listening to his discourses on the superiority of Frederick High School over the M. A. C, we concluded that he is from the ancient city, the home of Barbara Frietchie, xA.1 Ogal, and Phil McGlue. Does Jack prefer books or birds? We don ' t know, as he has only taken enough time from these pursuits to become an all- ' round athlete and a mili- tary genius. He can be seen almost an} ' spring day in compan}- with " 1 )111 ' ' Grace, prowling around the woods with a camera searching for the nest of Bubo z ' irghiiensis. We are expectantly awaiting the promised copy of his " Memoirs of a Hunter. " Jack absolutely doesn ' t allow the girls to toy with him, and his principal trouble this year seemed to be the selection of a sponsor. He followed sev- eral false trails to Berwyn, ashington, etc., and for a long time Avas undecided. After graduation. Johnson intends to start a new era in farming, and his Worcester County farm will be a model one. Fourteen unite in wishing him success, and will remember him long after the echo of his cheery whistle has died awav from College Park. 30 Francis H. O ' Neill Riverdale, Md.

It is claimed that he is able to spit out the scientific names of twenty thousand plants and animals. He is a close rival to " Smitty ' ' and " Bugs " Norton. " Neal " has been coming to the M. A. C. since the war. He preferred to come here rather than go to the kindergarten or a preparatory school. During his sojourn here he has been exposed to military, but did not take it. However, it is said that he was a shining light in this department under the old regime ' — before the " Big Chief " came. Sh-h-h — not so loud— the aforesaid youth is also a " fusser ' ' of no mean ability He is heavy on bringing the " flossies " to the Rossbourg. " Neal " and Truitt comprise the " Bugological " division of the class, and we predict a great future for this Papilio Ajax as a bugologist. He is a rather quiet and unpretentious 3 ' outh, and one would not know he was around except for that black jersey and the Riverdale cap, which oftset his physicjue. He is the official carrier of cut plug and picnic twist, and a perfomer of some note with the kodak. But, laying all jokes aside, the specimen at hand is a hard student, possess- ing a quiet and good-natured dispositon and well liked by all his classmates. One cannot but predict a bright future for him as a scientific man, for this he is already. 31 Cadet H. A. Rasmussen Baltimore City. Chemistry Freshman Year — Class Histo- torian ; Editor Triangle.

" Full of sclf-iinportancc and an abundance of brass: ' Fear not. it will not hurt you. It is only a cubist picture of wisdom, which claims the name Harry Anton Faust Rasmussen von Tackdel in higher society, but plain " Ras " ' is good enough for us. He has spent the last two years trying to down the pseudomoniperous teaching of some of the " Profs, " notably " Bonimy. " As a student, it is an acknowledged fact that IF " Ras " had studied he would have been the brightest man. in the class. He is a musician of no mean talent, having, during his five years ' stay here, blown every instru- ment in the band except the cymbals. And as to his military bearing- well, " Ras " isn ' t. However, there is another side to " Ras ' " life, aside from the noble. He has the enviable reputation of having been kicked from more class rooms, more cozy corners, and more homes, via glass doors, than any other member of the class. He was an ardent suffragette until one of the fair sex severely boxed his ears while he was making a jack-knife dive thru a glass door. " Ras ' ' can remain on the " right side " of more girls at the same time than any other man yet found (in his own estimation). He is, in physical size, inversely proportional to that name of his. " Ras " is a lovable sort, and when the class of ' Fourteen disbands we will all wish him well. 32 Lieutenant L. R. Rogers Baltimore City.

" " Sweeny, " as he is known to us, made his first bow to this cold, cruel, heartless world in Baltimore on March 17, 1894. He attended the public schools in Baltimore City until he matriculated at the M. A. C. in 1909. One of his characteristics is that he is always getting stung, especially in asking a girl to a dance, and in one particular instance wanted to cut a class- mate ' s throat for beating him out. " Sweeny " is one of the smooth, lovable sort that fall in love at first sight and fall out at first thought. He has a re- markable aptness for picking out the good lookers, however. He is one oi " Cat ' s " favorites and a shark at mathematics, and, of course, he gets his problems in on time ( ?). The subject of this essay is some noise maker. Hence he has ruined any good reputation he might have had with members of his household, not to speak of the neighbors. " Sweeny " is an engineer, and all those that have classes with him agree that when he finishes college he will be able to re- vise the methods of teaching engineering in all branches. For his thesis he is building an automobile engine, and unless he has some tire trouble, or skids going around a sharp curve, we can only predict a bright future for him. 33 Captain R. V.

Reginald Van T ' ump DeKoven Argrieves Truitt, commonly known among the fair sex as " Regs. " But she says, " Don ' t call him Regs, as T don ' t like you to; it sounds too much like Rags. ' ' " Regs " began to do the social stunt soon after lie arrived in 1910, and has continued with unabated zeal until his Senior year. He now claims that he has too many bugs to trisect, but we believe that he has become a trifle blase. However, it must be admitted that " Regs ' ' is some fish-walker — so much so, in fact, that one of his numerous girls from the Eastern Sho ' claims that he has a swell head and is practically hopeless. " Regs ' ' is Cory ' s left-hand man (O ' Neill being his right) and says, " If it n-asn ' t for O ' Neill I would get the medal in my course. " He is quite indus- trious, though, for it is no uncommon thing to see him copying a drawing that should have been finished as an observation drawing the afternoon before. But bugs are not his hobby, as in the past year he has become quite a military man, being made second additional Lieutenant for the beginning of this year. " Commy, " however, admiring his military genius (no, not his figure), promoted him to Captain of " B ' ' Company. Although it took the Faculty a long time to realize Truitt ' s ability, the stu- dents were not so slow, judging by the positions of responsibility they have en- trusted to him. We believe that this ability will place Truitt on top in his future undertakings. 34 Lieutenant Albert White College Park, Aid. Horticulture Sophomore Year — Corporal. Junior Year — Sergeant.

He seems to be a human magnet and draws them all to him. Another confidential item. " Al " is the secretary of the College Park Sunday School. It has been stated that he fell heir to this position because he was the only eligible ( ?) permanent male member of this school. Now, " Al " has a specialty, and we just bet you can ' t guess what it is. It is this, " Al " can get away with more grape juice than any other man in College or out. Please notice we take particular pains not to tell how he gets away with it. There may be another way of getting away with a thing besides drinking it. We all think a whole lot of " Al, " and whatever his future may be we wish him the best of success. 35 Captain E. P. Williams Woolford, J Id.

" Truly he deserves credit for not becoming a rich man. " ' You have before you, gentle reader, the Williams branch of the Senior Class. You see that it was necessarv to isolate the two culprits from the rest of the Class and place them on these pages in order that they may be easily compared. It may be seen at a glance that, ' though their dispositions are somewhat difrerent, each has that I-want-a-girl look and military bearing so necessary to such a pet of Commy as each has become. But to go back for a moment ; " E. P. " came to us in the fall of 1909 from the tangles of the Marsh grass of the Eastern Sho ' . It seems that even before that he had wandered around in and among the skyscrapers of New York, but finally meandered back to Woolford. It was at this time that a very pretty little romance occurred in which " she " persuaded him to come to colleg e. Upon his arrival " E. P. " set out in his quiet, unassuming manner to do two things, play football and make friends. Of course he studied a little, being a close understudy of " Mike, " but that is a minor consideration. In each of his undertakings he has met with remarkable success. " E. P. " has never taken up dancing, but that does not mean that he is a woman hater, for during the past year he has regularly journeyed to the Park six or eight times a week, and one doesn ' t usually do that for exercise. " E. " has been a staunch friend to ' Fourteen, and its other members wish him much success. 36 Major R. C. Williams Doncaster, Md. Chemistry Freshman Year — Secretaiy Class ; Corporal.

" It is from Doncaster, one of Charles County ' s most popular suburbs, that this sorrel-top hails. Indeed, for sixteen years that city was hidden under the canopy of despair, shut out from all hope of future relief from his m onotonous howls, by the presence of this disciple of Caruso. Finally, becoming desperate in the fall of 1909, his fellow citizens banished him to the M. A. C. When the odor of new-mown hay had somewhat disappeared, " Reddy " settled down to work, and passed the first two years of his college career very much as a human being would do. It was in his sophomore ' ear that " Reddy " ' resolved to divide his time as nearly as might be between Chemistry, Girls (note the plural), and hobbies of Commy, with the latter in the lead, although the social stunts have proven a close second. " Reds " has also proven himself a baseballist of no mean ability, having picked off several high flies from the top of the Hopkins bleachers, and having knocked several home runs ofif Walter Johnson. But to come back to native soil, " Reddy " has proven himself a most successful student. The numerous honors and trusts that he has held testify as to his ability and popularity. As he steps from the threshold of college life, he parts v.ith a wide circle of friends who wish him the best of fortune. 37 ' Sll ' llllllllll iKl Jll|:l|ll|ll|l||li|ll|ljj|l ill|l |ll|l:|ll|ll|»|ll|ll|.l| il Iil|r|ii|li|il|- |ii|i.|: ii:|ill ' l|ll|M|li I iluliili lill.JifllllliliilHI ' lllli llllnlilllllilll nil I I Ij I, I ,lMl,ili.|fil J II ' J iliiliiii ' i U ' ' ' tit i ' mi Jjf XI V T ci.-.

Ai. ) ' ji A MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE, ' Wka 4 lltalnrij nf % QUass nf 1914 S this, onr final year of college life, with its queer mixtures of pleasure and work, draws to a close, it again becomes the duty of the Historian to rehearse the great achievements of the members of our immortal class, the class of nineteen fourteen, during their four years of enrollment at our dear Alma Mater. I fully realize that the task is a stupendous one, and, even though I possessed the insight of a Thucydides, the style of a Macaulay and the industry of a Trojan, the difficulties would be almost insuperable. But claiming not an iota of the power of those mentioned, and begging charity of those that may read this, I shall endeavor to set forth to an expectant world and especially to the loved ones at home the many exploits of our fortunate members. It is claimed that everything has a beginning, and we, not wishing to be an exception, date our beginning from September the fifteenth, nineteen hundred and ten. And it came to pass in the fall of nineteen-ten, there came to the classic halls of the Maryland Agricultural College a verdant band of men in the search of knowledge. These " explorers " afterwards known as the " Freshies " or " Rats " were natives of various parts of our own land. This gathering of men presented nothing extraordinary from t he usual type of " Rats. " Their clothes gave forth the odor of " new m own hay, " while their cheeks presented a color between dark brown and purple, and a bright red. In open eyed wonder, mingled with admiration, they gazed at the beautiful campus loaded with grasses, flowers and trees, and at the ancient school with its massive brick walls towering towards the sky, until they were welcomed by the noble President and the Deans. Their words of greeting convinced us that bright hopes and many happy anticipations were in store for us as we began our four years ' journey toward the goal of graduation. Bound by a common tie of enthusiasm and energy, we resolved not to revolu- tionize the professional world, but to reach those high attainments as efficient and conscientious students, so as to be enabled to cope with the responsibilities of our professions. Fully cognizant of the fact that " in unity there is strength " we held our first class meeting in the top hall of the old building and the following officers were elected : President, William.s, E. P. ; Vice-President, R. T. Gray ; Secretary, Williams, R. C. ; Treasurer, Coster; Historian, Rasmussen. 39 |U|ll|ll|l.| l|ll|llflll |ll|l ' |l||l ' |ll|1 l " " i l|:i| l i|U|M|liri|l.|li|. r ril llill.llNlll|l l»lNl.l|llll|MIIII ■ll|tl|.l|l|.

All of this was done in the open and many of us were disappointed at there being so much quiet. Sophs were prowling around but not a single attack was made. However, in a few days we were called to " number four " and it was there that the terrible regime of " Bob " White began. To tell of the many hard- ships we wc e compelled to suffer as helpless " rats, " conquered by the dominating spirit of the Sophs, would be to rehearse the oft ' told story which is so vivid in the minds of us all. But in course of time we became accustomed to our new sur- roundings, and, in observance of the respect due the dignified (?) Sophomores, we spent the remainder of the session in peace, the kind that confronts all " rats " at a military school. During June week we elected the following officers for the next year : Presi- dent, Worch ; Vice-President, Hoff ' ecker ; Secretary, Williams. R. C. ; Treasurer, Williams, E. P. ; Historian, Rasmussen ; Sergeant-at-Arms, Coster. With the summer vacation as one happy memory, we assembled in September to continue our course in the role of Sophomores, or as some one has sagely said, " the age of the wise fool. " In this state of mental distortion we played the game on the " rats " as taught us the previous year by our kind friends, the Juniors, (adding, however, a few artistic touches of President Worch and Hoffecker), and feeling the dignity of our position, we considered ourselves fully competent to assume the responsibility of teaching that unsophisticated and unorganized band of " children " a few respects due their seniors. The annual Freshman rules were read, rat meetings were held, gauntlets run. and the big inter-building broom fisht was held, the " New Building " men being swept oft ' the field except for " Bill " Grace, who won the battle. Manv strange things happened around college this year. The State Grange display removed itself from the Experiment Station to the College Campus. The Profs ' gates succeeded in their long desire to change places wdth the big farm gates at the Experiment Station. The skeletons that for so many years had been peacefully at rest in Science Hall sneaked out on the Campus and haunted the O. C. who gave the poor Sophs so many chases. However, we did not get off with all our pranks. The old adage that " every pearl has its price " was surely true in our case. Well do we remember the night that the O. C. caught us holding a " Rat meeting, " and all were reported. Well do we remember the seven weeks spent under " close arrest, " social life being expatriated, with only the luscious ( ?) college bill-of-fare, and an occasional visit of our dear ( ?) friend Johnnv Upham, to cheer us. All because we were caught administer- ing " justice " to that wild country " rat " who was so timid as to skip a meeting that was planned especially for him. The final examinations were soon posted and with those terrible ordeals over we elected the following offfcers for our Junior year: President, Hoffecker; 41 l " l ' iiriMii|{iiiiiiiiiiiiiii:i.ii.i:ir J .iiiiiiii.tiiiiiiiiiKiiiiiiiiii.ii ' iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiuiiiiiiiuiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiii [|::i:iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii:iiiiiiiiiii ii ' ii ' ii ' iiiii.iiiinii.iiii iim i|iiiiiii i m im. niniiii.ii iliiliiiiili£ inillllil ' l!

C. departing- for our homes to spend a summer of jollification. The fall of nineteen-twelve finds us again back to college, as Juniors, with renewed determination to pass our coming examinations. We had long since shaken ofif the many freshmanic and sophomoric delusions and follies ami were basking in the warmth of an enviable sphere which had not been reached by a single bound. Our class had greatly decreased in numbers, having lost Ager, Bean. Chaney, Crew. Donn, Grififin, Hamilton, Harris, Hook, Jefif, Lyons, Mon- tell. Proctor, Roe, West, and Worch. Ager, Bean, Harris and Roe returned to their homes to enter business with their respective parents. Chaney left us all in a fog. We don ' t know where he is. Crew% Griffin, Lyons and Worch went hom.e — it is reported — to get married. Donn went to a ranch in Texas. Our old friend Hamilton was released from his arrest to receive treatment for rheu- matism. The last reports were that he was no better. Hook left us to obev the call of the girls and went to Western Maryland College, and. like our friend Jeff at Delaware College, has made good at athletics. Montell changed his course and thereby dropped back a year. Proctor entered Princeton and is making a most successful student. West, after missing a year, returned to col- lege and entered the class of 191 5. In spite of all our handicaps our class was prominent in every branch of college life. In athletics Hoffecker was Captain of the football team, " Pete " Lednum Captain of baseball team, Johnson Captain and manager of the track team, while every man in the class afifiliated himself with some branch of sport. Johnnie Gray won all the oratorical contests of the year. The " non-comp " medal was captured by our class and we had the champion class ball team of the year, but it was in the circle of social life that we " shone " so brightly. Every man of the nineteen-f our teen class is an ardent " fusser. " Whv even Ford boasts of a certain little " Instructor " of his on the " Sho " , " and as to Ras. " Fse got a deuce of a drag with the man what ' s de President of this yer Institu- tion. " It is in the ball room particularly that we are of the stellar type, and our Promenade was one of the biggest state social functions of the season, although there was such a severe rain storm during the " Prom " that Governor and Mrs. Goldsborough and others prominent in the receiving line were unable to be present. It was during this year that the calamitous fire swept old M. A. C. and took from us our historic barracks, the story of whicli has oft ' been told, but we came to the front as men, and did all in our power to lay the foundation for the de- velopment of a greater AI. A. C. After passing our final examinations and enjoying the class German and June ball, all departed for home with the usual dignity of a Senior. 43 :!llllllllll|li|ll|ll|ll|llll ' |ll|ll|ll|ll|llllll ' llll|ll|l{|ll|ll|ll|llllllli|il|ll| ' lli:|liri|lliii|ll|i ' l ' i|lii ' ll " l ' l ' lll) " ll 9J|l||ll|l{| ' |ll||||||||||ll|l|||||||||||||||l|||{!||||||||||{||||||||l|||l|ll|ll|l|il|ll|i:|ll|lllll|{||nill|ll|ll|l.|li|lll ' I llllllllll II ' |i |i||II1I.IIIII!l = ' ' REG " TRUITT i ' lillillllliriliili ' liiliili ' lnliiliiliiliililiiliiliiliitiiliiliiliil ' iliilMiilHliniiltitiiliiliiiniiiliiliiii! :!I|ll|.lllllll|li|ll|ll|ll|{l|l!|!l|!l|il|IIIII|!||l!|!l|l.|ll|l!|ll|!|!|l ' ri| " riM|ll|ll|:|| !|il| ' l ' l|il|i!|lli| llllllllllllllllllll ' lllllllllll " AL " WHITE ? ilill!iinilllllllllnlllllllllllilllliillllli|{llnllllillillullllllliililllllllllllrliil ' illllllllllllliilHliil iir Tiiij(iMriririi " i ii :i ' i ' iii|ii|ii|i.|ii|iiiiiriiiiiiiiiiiiii ' iiiiiiiii ' iiiiiiiiii ' I ' m I ' -mh iiiiiiiiih; I " E.

J ' ..0 " The history of our Senior year is covered by the indivickial biographies and it will suffice here to mention just a few happenings around College. The reali- zation of our athletic dreams came in the defeat of St. John ' s College at foot- ball and we gained the undisputed State championship and our team was not scored on by any other State eleven. We also witnessed with much favor the change from military to student government, the success of which has been marvelous. We also witnessed with great interest the advent of fraternities. It is needless to say that we have enjoyed the extra liberties and privileges granted us, and 1914 has indeed been gay in society and active in class matters. Spring, with drills and hard work, came earlier than usual, but Saturdays were usually filled with ball games, and, strange as it seems now, how rapidly came our last examinations and Senior Class Finals. The session has passed pleasantly and without many events of unusual charac- ter, and, now that we have given up our work as students, it is with no small feeling of regret that we bid our classmates good-bye and depart for fields of labor. In conclusion, I will say we have the greatest possible respect and admiration for our teachers, and deeply appreciate the untiring efforts they have made to guide us in our work. The history of the class of 1914 is ended, and we must say farewell. How faithfully shall we cherish the remembrance of our college and our class ! The last hour has struck, and with undying love for our Alma Mater, with steadfast loyalty to one another, with hearts bent on high things, we go forth, and God speed.

Upon coming here " Buck " entered the sub-freshman class, but afterward decided to take up Agriculture, and joined our rank and file. Do not let this picture mislead you to think that he is a hater of the fair sex, for he is quite popular around Hyattsville. By the way. Buck has a soft spot in his heart for Baltimore, all his spare moments being spent in either writing to or reading let- ters from there. He claims that they are busi- ness affairs, but we are from Missouri. After leaving M. A. C, he expects to settle down to farming. Good luck to you, old man. K. C. Cole Port Chester, X. Y. Agriculture. If you haAC chanced to spy a broad smile under the shade of a Pea-Cutting hat roaming about between College and the postoffice, you have seen the only original " Casey. " Cole has some drag with the Profs when it comes to taking trips for the purpose of test- ing milk, so he tells our friend, " Tommy, " at the U. S. Soldiers ' Home. " Don ' t tefl the other fellows I told you, because they will kid nie about it. " But Tomni}- keeps a secret like a woman. Along athletic lines. Cole has been a tower of strength to the basket-ball team during his two years ' stay at College, and has also taken very kindly to lacrosse. 48 V. j 3l :l j ' ' - m; ryland agricultural college. :Qv,.(( }l2 ll ■JK -,.

" After the fire George found refuge in the Park and he immediately began to study the geography of Washington. George also found the young ladies of the Park to be very inter- esting. He has a very warm spot in his heart for military, but when the young ladies come from a distance to see him drill he gets excused and sits by the window in Tolly ' s room and watches them straining their eyes looking for him. He is some agronomist, and, judging from what he says, he is going to show us what real farming is, and he has best wishes from all of us. L. R. Drake Royal Oak, Md. Agriculture. Leigh Russel Drake was born in Hooks- town. Pa., on December 7th. 1894, and roamed over the country until he struck salt water at Royal Oak, Aid., about three years ago, when, true to his name, he became anchored. He entered the M. A. C. as a freshman in the engi- r.eering course, but soon found out he was pursuing the wrong course and finally decided to become a member of our class. He is very fond of eats, as any one who carelessly left them on the back porch can testify. Furthermore, he loves the rats so well that we came near losing his presence in class while he was endea ' oring to bring one np the way he should go. 49 » Mr, 71 T7T TT h » IHt !9I4 REVEILLE Ix - M - 4 -vv - =tj, _ F.

Yes, he is not. It is remarkable how a good start will help a fellow along. The girls gave him the start, and now " Commy " and " Doc ' ' Monroe are kept busy trying to stop him. In the military department Frank is the shining light of " C " Company, and has been e ■erything from a private to a first lieutenant.

He was born May 5th, 1894, passed into a comatose condition and has only once been aroused from it. In a memorable night last year he gave offense to a bunch of Riverdale " bums. " He imme- diately broke all records for the hundred, two- twenty, eight-eighty and home run. He came to M. A. C. from Hagerstown High School in 1912 and entered the two-year course in horticulture. He was stationed in " Old Barracks, " where he soon pummeled his way to fame as champion heavyweight boxer among the rats. 50 A_3l II ;) iL Y ' ' - )-- , " • " ( ' ■ MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE.

In the summer of 1913 he was one of the many victims of " Typhoid. " By the way, T. B. is some artist, for, on one occasion, he showed his ability in drawing gasoline engines.

He emerged without that trouble- some possession. l)ut wath an unquenchable desire for company found only in the " horse piddle.

Before continuing, how- ever, let it be known that the title Sinker is not used because he is lead (led), but rather because he is " some heavy. " Howard has proved himself to be one of the leading lights of the class, not only in the class room, but also on the campus. It was due to his efforts that our class threw off the shackles of precedent and withdrew from the Junior Class, and, establishing itself as a separate organization, with Sinker as its able President. L. R. SiiooT Kensington, Md. Horticulture. No, ladies and gentlemen, this is not the missing link, but in its stead the manly visage of Smoot, the bab_v of our class. This young man drifted into our class in the fall of 1912 and immediately decided to become one of " Doc " Munroe ' s pests. In athletics he is not much, except in the dashes to mail box. He has a great head on liis shoulders, even though it is of a maroon hue. He is now working on some scheme such as unbreakable greenhouses, or how to get " Commy " bawled up, and we feel sure that some day he will be a second Burbank. His plan, when he leaves M. A.

Our class has the honor of beincr the larg est two-year class ever entering the M. A. C. and will graduate a larger proportion than any other. The various professors have all found a love for special students. Dunnington, Bon ' iny ' s infant, is unable to make a valid contract.

" Skinner, our able President, has one ambition in life and that is to show- Prof. Anspon how to make grafting wax.

Shiplev has won 12 " M ' s " and as many Stars, and we all know the College will grcatlv miss his presence in the future.

We all got home without being arrested, however, and have several specimens by which to remember the dav. We also took the annual trip to Laurel for the stock judging contest which is a notable event. We usually carry back our share of the spoils, this having amounted to $45 in two years. Professor Kinzy gave us some practical instruc- tion in judging " chickens " while there. Our fellows have found, while on these trips, that it is well to keep one eye skinned for " Mulligan.

THE 1914 REVEILLE _ As t. A Junior QIlaaB IftBtcrg T was the evenino- on which one of those protracted class meetings, to which all Juniors are subjected, had been held. The class his- torian wended his way wearily homeward. He had a big job before him. For the class history he had carefully compiled was now to be viewed in another perspective. He realized now, as never before, that, whereas he had seen many things dimly he saw them now in a new light. Therefore, he resolved that he must revise the history of his class. Gentle reader, bear with him for a few moments and peruse the results of his labor. One of the many things the Junior class has considered seriously is the Junior Prom. Around this evemt many happy reminiscences center in the days that follow, and before the event many ' Tron Men " were worked overtime. There- fore, all interest centers upon this social happening and the Juniors all aim to be on hand and make the Seniors happy. The first preliminary toward the success of this afifair was a series of pro- longed class meetings. The President was a very important ])erson at this time, for he called the class meetings, and the members all proceeded to smoke him out. Gentle reader, please remember that all ' these meetings were held in the Col- lege smoking room, otherwise it would be impossible to get the members together. No less than ninety and nine meetings were held, and business relating to all mat- ters, from who stole the goose that laid tlic class dues to such incomprehensible things as the fourth dimension, was considered. The class Treasurer vas appointed Chairman of the Committee to find the goose, dead or alive. The fourth dimension was declared to be out of order. Because, since, as our Presi- dent said, " Parliamientary Law does not recognize the fourth dimension. " We were awfullv glad that he did not discover that we did not recognize Mr. Fourth Dimension. Other Committees were appointed to look after various activities in connec- tion with the Junior Prom, and these will here be commended for their good work. These committees were instructed to report one week before the date of the Prom. It might here be remarked that the date had not yet been decided upon. But this did not hinder the enthusiasm of the various committees, and they proceeded to get busy. In the interim before the final class meeting much history was made. The class became divided. There was the Pre-Lent party and the Post-Lent party. After much political contention the Pre-Lent party was successful and Feb- 64 MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. niarv 20th was set as the date for the Prom. The disappointed members pre- dicted cold and wintry weather for the night of the 20th. Their opponents claimed the cold made no difference. At any rate the North wind continued to blow and one week before the fatal day it was as cold as ever. The following day the bulletin boards announced that the final class meeting before the Junior Prom was to be held on the afternoon of the same day, instead of in the evening as usual. There was no excuse for the change except that the Class President, the Secretary and the Treasurer were called away on " bu si- ness " (girls) for that evening. Well, we had the meeting, and as nearly as the Historian can record, one which was somewhat in this order. The President led ofT with a first class hit with his gavel, and silence reigned supremic. Not a sound was to be heard save the President ' s voice, which broke forth in this manner, " Fellows, come to order, the class of 1915 is ready for business and the Secretary will please call the roll. " This personage arose and called the roll as if it were a huge joke. Then he read the minutes, while the President ' s gavel worked overtime trying to get the members under control. It was to be wondered at times whether or not he was trying to outdo the Secre- tary at making noise. When the Secretary finished calling the class roll, and few of the members knew he had, the President immediately stopped imitating the village blacksmith and laid his gavel down to rest for just a few seconds, while he asked, " Are there any corrections or objections? If not, the minutes of the last meeting will now be read. " Our Secretarv again arose and proceeded forth- with to read in a bored manner. When he finished, the President again said, " Are there any corrections or objections? If not, the minutes stand approved as read. " After this, old business was in order, and the reports of the various committees were forthcoming. The President made an announcement to that efifect. After some minutes of silence a young man, Chairman of the Committee to find the Goose, arose and upon being recognized by the chair began as follows : " Mr. President, and Gentlemen, as Treasurer of this class, I would like to preface my remarks with a few facts which bear directly upon the history of the goose in question. Ever since the very beginning of our class, we have been famous for our conservative principles (applause). In our Freshman year we ever held before us the idea that some day we should have first share in the honors which M. A. C. would bestow upon her alumni (applause). Therefore, we early proceeded to formulate a number of plans whereby we might have one or more nest eggs for the goose that lays the class dues. In our Sophomore year the goose upon which we had placed so much dependence was driven from her nest by a calamitous fire. Prior to that event, gentlemen, you all know how valiantly she worked for us, and how much worry she saved us. Since that time we have had to worry with investments and rely upon the usury our sheckels would pour into our 65 ' , k ( ' 0)1 v ' J) ( Jr ' -)- .- ,.n., . " " h » .■ " ) -. V.-4! ' 4 A THE 1914 REVEILLE_ class treasury. Since that time we have hoped she would some day return. But, we looked in vain. Summer came, then the Junior year burst upon us, and winter in all his glory and still not a sign of Madam Goose. " The Junior Prom was beginning to be discerned upon the distant horizon and our finances were still low. As you all know, gentlemen, I asked you, many times, ' what is wrong with the goose? ' (Laughter.) But no one seemed to know. It was at this stage that the committee, of which the speaker was Chair- man, was appointed to look into the matter of finding what could be done to per- suade the goose to return to us. " Mr. President, I am now coming to the point. This is what we did. A certain gentleman, Cockey by name, who, as you all know and as his name im- plies, knows considerable about fowls of all kinds, particularly ' chickens, ' was consulted. Now, Mr. Cockey is chairman of the program committee and the plan he recommended for capturing the golden fruit he outlined as follows: ' Gentlemen, ' said he, T have a little plan, a formula as it were, which I know should work in all kinds of weather and under the most adverse circumstances. T know I should have it patented but I have decided to let you all have the benefit of my discovery. ' Whereupon he held up one of the prettiest little books we had ever seen. He opened it and upon looking closer we discovered that it was a Junior Prom program. Still we did not understand. Then he explained : ' Gen- tlemen, ' said he, ' how many of you want to be present at the Junior Prom ' Where- upon every man stood up. ' Then let every man deposit his share of the golden fruit, which has been scarce since our class goose left her nest, into the nest along with our already big egg, and we wlill not need to hunt further for the contrary old goose. ' " Mr. President, this is the plan, with a few alterations, which the committee presents to the class, and I would conclude my remarks by asking that the com- mittee be discharged as soon as the report is voted upon. " The President thereupon, after a motion had been duly made and seconded, called for a vote which adopted the report of the committee, and by another vote the President was authorized to discharge the committee with a vote of thanks. Then the reports of the other committees came in their regular order. All reported a favorable amount of progress and those whose work was completed were discharged. Upon motion the class adjourned to meet the first night after the Junior Prom and then report upon the success of their various endeavors. In the meantime it was wonderful how well the plan adopted by the class for collecting the golden fruit succeeded. The eagles came flying in, and the class Treasurer wore once more his angelic smile. The migration of the eagles also caused the Juniors to fly about in a very hurried manner. The college auditorium was decorated. Forest trees were placed in its interior while varied colored lights blazed forth from their branches. Cedar festoons became the order of decora- 66 MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE.

The nio-ht of the big event came. The sky was bhie and studded with stars, while under foot the snow gave a warm, soft covering to mother earth. The Juniors were on hand early, then came the Seniors and the Juniors received them and their friends gladly; the music began; and the event wa a reality. Everybody was happy, the Seniors were delighted, and the Juniors felt amply repaid for all the hours of arduous planning the event had made necessary. The hours passed very quickly. For suddenly the clock informed everyone that it was time to depart. The class met the following night. It was like a family reunion. Everybody was shaking hands and congratulations were the order of the evening. Many motions expressing thanks for services rendered were passed and the meeting adjourned in due order. The Class Historian after consulting many authorities upon the subject be- lieves that the Junior Prom given by the Class of 191 5 was one of the most brilliant and successful social events in the annals of M. A. C. Three years ago we gathered from various parts of this and other states to form the class of 191 5. During that time we have met and associated with each other in the class room, the athletic field, on the campus and elsewhere, but on February 20th we actually met, as a class, for the first time as a prominent social factor during our college lives. Surely, the experiences we have gleaned from this event during this brief yet most formative period of our existence we shall never forget. As a class our three }ears have indeed been strenuous ones. We have faced as grave problems as any class, and no class has more bravely their burden than our own. If after years when care weighs heavily upon the brow, when responsibilities burden, and when duties depress the spirit, life will surely take a new start, and ambition will arise to overcome the greatest difficulty as one thinks, remembers and says to himself, " Lo! I was a member of the class of 1915. " Even now we are beginning to feel the responsibilitv that falls upon each member. We realize that we must play our part in the great game of furthering civilization if we are to uphold the reputation of M. A. C. Many times at the close of day, burdened with lessons and tasks and duties yet imdone, we Juniors perhaps have looked out from the windows of our little rooms in the old historic barracks toward the lakes and watched a few wandering tramps lig ' ht their evening fires, and smoke their pipes in peace and freedom and contentment, and we must sometimes have wondered if, between the two classes, they and us, they had not, after all, really made the wiser choice. But we must always remember, they are but parasites upon a busv, striving- civilization, and the world has not been bettered one whit, nor lifted one degree 67 - lutiai iui-ui ' iiit- THE 1914 REVEILLE_ by their existence. No matter how valiant or brilHant the hfe, civiHzation refuses to recognize any one whose existence has not contributed to the progress of humanity. Formerly, the traveler in France would visit the tomb of Napoleon and bare his head in holy homage, as all Europe once did. Today civilization is beginning to consider this man as having spent a most noble and gallant life in merely hav- ing sent to a premature grave millions upon millions of men, women and children and having plunged France into an enormous war debt from which she has as yet never fully recovered. The traveler today as he stands before the great tomb, as he sees parade before his mind ' s eye the career of that greatest of soldiers, murmurs with Ingersoll, " I saw him at Toulon in all his glory. I saw him walking the banks of the Seine contemplating suicide. I saw him cross the Alps and mingle the eagles of France with the eagles of the crags. I saw him at Ulm, at Marengo, and at Austerlitz. I saw him at Leipsic in defeat and disaster driven by a million bayonets back upon Paris — clutched like a wild beast ' — banished to Elbe. I saw him escape and retake an Empire by the force of his genius. I saw him again upon the frightful fields of Waterloo, where Fate and Chance combined to wreck the fortunes of their former king. I saw him at St. Helena, with his arms behind him, gazing out upon that sad and solemn sea. " I thought of the widows and the orphans he had made, of the tears that had been shed for his glory, of the only woman he had ever loved pushed from his heart by the cold hand of his ambition, and I said, T would rather have been a poor French peasant, sitting in my hut, with the vines growing over my door, and the grapes growing purple in the kisses of the autumn sun, and have my children upon my knees, with their arm;S around me. I say I would rather have been that poor French peasant, and gone down into the tongueless silence of the dreamless dust than to have been known as that imperial impersonation of force nad murder, ' Napoleon the Great. ' " The Juniors alreadv realize that the world today needs builders, not destroyers. We realize that mjore men like Washington are needed to help make this country of ours a place where each may expect to really have an existence defined by the words, " Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. " We realize that men like Lincoln are needed to break the shackles of vice which are making slaves of millions of our fellows. We realize that it matters not whether we shall be lowly of station or famous, so long as our duty be clearly met. Then, we, the members of the Junior Class, will be proud of M. A.

Upon this class has fallen the burden of training " , coaching and entertaining- that often apparently insignificant but really most essential student — the " rat. " To the man of average intelligence this statement, that the " rat " ' is an important element, may seem rather broad. Nevertheless, all things are possible, and, knowing this, one must try to conceive the inconceivable and believe that this unsophisticated monstrosity will some day actually become a Sophomore. So, since the environment of a cliild bespeaks its after life, it is clearly seen that upon the ability of the Class to discharge this particular duty depends a large share of the success of the college. Do you recall, fellows, how you have dealt with the " rat " ])hase of }our work? When this page shall appear before you your days as Sophomores shall have been numbered, and, " lest ye forget, " a scanning of these lines will recall to vou that during the session of I9i3- ' i4 a larger percentage of new students became satisfied and remained vithin the portals of the old college than had been recorded for many years back. Such a record is well worth the effort exerted. Anotlier remarkable feat accomplished was brought to your attention when the members of the football team assembled at the last Christmas German to receive their letters. Seven of these stalwart sons of Maryland had previously cast their lots with the Class of ' Sixteen. And no meagre team was it, either, but one which had for the first time in seven lean, hungry years brought home to swell the pride of its Alma Mater the highest honor for which she could ask — the Championship Banner of her State. M ' iat more would you have? To enumerate your worthy actions and your Worthy deeds w ould be the work of a volume, and your editor has given you but a page. Therefore, ihe e being ' but limited space, these two little achievements have been singled out and are here recorded, so that in future days you may read and know that your days as " Sophs " were not idle. For be assured, Classmates, that the history of a Class is not written to be pondered over by boys still at school, but in after 72 - JL : K MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE.

A. C. has ever known. At the first roll call, more than sixty men answered to their names, " Oozy " Huntemann had the time of his life endeavoring to explain to that bunch of boneheads that if they did not create less disorder in the class room a terrible master in the guise of a Prof, would give them no end of trouble. To go back for a moment, in the latter part of May, 1913, the acting president of the Sub-Freshman Class called a meeting in the College Auditorium to elect officers for the following year. The President of our Class having left College, we were very for- tunate in having " Bob " White, President of the Class of 1913, to preside over the meeting. When all business was transacted, Bob gave us some very good advice, which, no doubt, has proven to be a help to the old boys who are now in the Freshman Class. From the beginning of our Freshman year until the middle of November, we were not bothered to any great extent by the " Sophs. " The " Rats " were scattered in the towns around the College and it was a very hard matter to get all of them together, in order to hold a party for their benefit. On Saturday night, however, the " Sophs " decided to hold their first Rat Meeting. Invitations were sent to all the new boys and it was surprising to see the large number of men who attended this meeting. The first thing on the programme was the running of the gauntlet, and this afforded the " Sophs " a great deal of pleasure. Thanksgiving, not being far distant, was suggestive of turkey, so the old boys decided to get their first real taste of this bird while they had the opportunity. For a short time (but painful to the RATS) feathers flew, and at the termination of this slaughter the scene presented quite a resemblance to the preparation for a good old-fashioned Thanksgiving dinner. In the midst of the evening ' s pleasure (for the " Sophs " ), the entertainment came to an abrupt ending by the appearance of our distinguished fellow student, " Madam " David L. Quinn. Cadet Quinn ' s close resemblance to His Imperial Majesty, Thomas H. was the cause of the confusion. Some watchful sentinel, mistaking the aforesaid cadet through this close resemblance, spread the alarm, and in less than ten seconds every participant of this meeting was conspicuous by his absence. Since then, everything has been quiet along the Rubicon. Due to the fact that the Class of 1917 has been strengthened by the matricula- tion of a number of High School graduates, it is especially prepared to assume the responsibilities concomitant with its position in such a manner as we hope will reflect credit upon the Class and conduce to the honor and glory of M.

Accordingly, the famous Morrill Act was passed, which extended financial aid from the federal government to those edu- cational institutions that should include agriculture, science, the mechanic arts, and military science in the curriculum. The military department at the M. A. C. was organized pri- marily with the idea of answering these requirements. The pri- mary object of this military instruction is to so train the students while at college in the " Art of warfare " that, should occasion arise, they will be able to enter the volunteer service of their country as ofificers. Should the United States be drawn into a great foreign war it is certain that the services of these students would be needed in the field. The regular army and such purely military institutions as West Point could not furnish nearly as many trained men as would be needed for officers, and it will devolve upon the graduates of such land-grant colleges as the M. A. C. to act as officers. This advantage to the country in time of war is not the only advantage of the military department. The profit to the individual student is equally as great. There is, of course, a little time taken from other studies by the military work, but this loss is far more than offset by the training the cadet receives. In the first ])lacc, military drill develops a free, erect, graceful carriage of the body. It develops the whole body in exact proportion, and insures that symmetry of body so much to be desired. Furtliermore, the drill takes the cadet out in the open air for an hour of brisk exercise each day, thereby breaking the monotony of class room work. The second great benefit of the military work to the individual cadet is to train him to be subordinate to legitimiate authority. This phase of the military is to be fountl advantageous in still another aspect. This is that it trains the officer to command, and gives him the ease of bearing and self-assurance so necessary in after life. The third aid imparted to the individual by military instruction is that he is, after graduation, in a position to enter the regular armv as a second lieutenant or to secure duty at some military post. E8 . " .-- " V . 3i-. ' V - vl " " ' ! ' ' d MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE, C J - - ' ' The status of the military department at the M. A. C. has been very greatly changed in the past two years. Prior to the fire of November, 1912, the dis- cipline at M. A. C. was exclusively under the direction of the military depart- ment. Rigid discipline was maintained in the barracks at all times, and the cadet uniform was required to be worn continuously. When the barracks were de- stroyed the old regime necessarily had to be modified. The discipline was changed to student government, and the military functions were exercised only during drill hour. The greatest blow sustained by the military department on account of the fire was the loss of the indoor rifle range and a place where the battalion might be drilled during inclement weather. During the past year, on bad days it was necessary either to suspend drill altogether or else merely to give the officers theoretical instruction. In spite of this handicap, however, remarkable progress has been made during the year. At the beginning of the school session the new men caught on to the elementary drills with remarkable rapidity. Within an unusually short period the cadets had l ecome proficient in the school of the soldier of the sciuad, and the company. And very soon they understood the battalion movements and were able to perform the ceremonies with absolute accuracy. Extended order was next taken up and it, too, was soon mastered. This rapid progress was due to the activity of the officers and to the close supervision of Major J. A. Dapray, who was detailed during January, 1913, by the War Department as professor of military science and tactics. It is a debatable question whether the lessening of the work of the military department has been of advantage to the college and to the students, or whether the removal of strict military discipline has been detrimental to them. Which ever this mav be, the removal of strict discipline has accomplished one very important result. This result has been to make the military department more popular with the students. They no longer look upon the military department as the source of all their ills as was the case under the old regime. And this has no doubt had a great deal to do with the rapid progress of the work during the past year. 89 ( . " ' c " 1 " «v.. - ' - : ' MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE.

At the call a squad of thirty eager men marched to the athletic ground under their captain, " Countr} " Morris. Here each man was given a complete outfit. They dressed rapidly and waited patiently for the orders from " Curley. " At the words " Get out, fellows, " ' every man was on his toes and the entire squad trotted to the field, each ready to work his hardest for M. A. C. and for a position on the team. The schedule was perhaps the hardest and longest in the his- tory of M. A. C. ' s football career. It was likewise very important. It consisted of ten games, including the State colleges, namely : Johns Hopkins, Western INIaryland, St. John ' s and Washington College. Curley had some excellent material and it was a little hard for one coach to pick the best eleven. However, Curley lost no time, but rapidly wdiipped two strong teams into shape. Every day from four o ' clock until dark you could hear the boys being drilled in signals. Each man was being coached as much as possible. Now and tlien the two teams would line up against each other and some hard struggles resulted. Each and every man was trying to out-do his opponent in order to gain a regular position. The first string men had to plav their best at all times to keep their places. After two weeks of steady practice. City College of Baltimore sent over her little band of warriors. They w ere game from start to finish, but lost, 27-0. Our boys show ed up as well as was expected, but at the same time it was easily no- ticed that they were not in form. It will be useless to attempt to describe every game in detail, but the scores and important features will be given in order. Encouraged by a victory, the team went through another week of hard work and on Saturday, October the fourth, we lined up against Richmond College, of Virginia, for the annual contest. Our team showed marked improvement, swept Richmond ofif their feet, and won, 45-0. This was just one point less than the score of the season of 1912. 117 the: 1914 REVEILLE " - - ..H -v o ijlJ - A The next game to prepare for was that with Johns Hopkins University. This being a State game it was vitally important. We knew nothing of their strength, but at the same time prepared our boys for a stiff battle. A number of the Faculty members and nearly every student witnessed the game. At three o ' clock, October the eleventh, a cool, dam p day, we took the field at Homewood. After a bitterly fought battle our boys marched proudly from the field with the long end of the score, 26-0. Not once did Hopkins have a chance to score. " Ship ' ' displayed great form in circling the ends for long gains. After the Hopkins game you could hear the boys say, " We ' ll be champions this year. " However, they did not boast, but when we met and defeated West- ern Maryland we strengthened our hold on the championship. It is not neces- sary to describe the game, as the score, 46-0, tells the whole story. The following Saturday we met one of the strongest elevens in the country when we faced the Navy at Annapolis. Our boys were outweighed at least fifteen pounds to a man and the powerful eleven crashed through us, finally rolling up a total of 76 points. Our eleven deserved credit, though, because not once did a man fail to charge. Each and every one fought his best to the end. Rock Hill canceled its ganie, so we had two w ' eeks to prepare for St. John ' s. The first week we took things easy, allowing the boys to get a good rest, but the second week the boys Avere worked hard. Curley put forth every effort to accomplish his one ambition — to beat St. John ' s. Finally, November the eighth rolled around, after an awfully long week. In the presence of two thousand interested and satisfied spectators at the M. A. C. field the M. A. C. eleven defeated the fast St. John ' s rivals by the score of 13-0. The victory was not a surprise, but was very gratifying. The score does not indicate how much stronger our eleven was. We outplayed St. John ' s at every stage of the game. While there were stars, the whole team played evenly and steadily and wath snap and steam. We made St. John ' s look like scrubs. As usual, " Ship " made his long gains around the ends, and " Hoff " was on the job at picking holes. For the opponents Clark played well. While he made no long gains, he handled punts perfectly and did some clever punting. In the first half M. A. C. made some long gains, but could not work the ball over the goal line. We came back strong in the third cjuarter and twice crossed our opponents ' line, one goal being kicked. The last quarter was not at all lacking in interest. Both teams fought bitterly, but could not score. The whistle blew and the score stood 13-0 in favor of AI. A. C. This was the first time in seven years we had defeated our rivals. The rooters (both the students and alumni) aided greatly with their wonder- ful cheering. The Alumni and the Battalion Bands marched over the field of com- 118 MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. « ' »ij,„i(w«».v«.»«» " ' l ' " ' ' « ' TO».,„„.,M ' t- ' " " % I . . - . k bat with banners and martial music. Hundreds of happy followers of M. A. C. fell in line and paraded around the campus. Then came the goat with his little S. J- C. blanket of orange and black, but he was well guarded by M. A. C. rooters. Afte ' ; the parade the rooters left, over-loaded with joy and happiness. Late that night the boys made a large bon-fire on the campus and songs and yells were enjoyed until a late hour. That great day will be long remembered. That victory paved the way for the State Championship. On the following Friday Washington College came over with a very heavy eleven, confident of victory. Our boys kept pretty quiet until they were on the field. Then they fought bitterly, and after the roughest combat of the season came away with the long end of a 20 to o score. We had then met and defeated every State team and won the Undisputed Championship of Maryland. Xo State team had crossed our goal line. We were a proud and happv bunch of M. A. Caesars. The next game was with Gallaudet. They came out determined to beat us, and they did. We were out played at all stages of the game, and offer no ex- cuses for defeat. It was a great day for Gallaudet, as they returned to Ken- dall Green a happy bunch. On Thanksgiving day. we met P. I. C. at Chester in the final game and were defeated, 2 " to 7. We gained ground at will, but were unable to hold the ball. Fumbles cost us at least four touchdowns. P. ' Si. C. had a scrappy team and thev worked together. In the last minute of play Rufif crossed the line for the only score chalked against P. I. C. this season. As a whole, our record is excellent, and this past season has been a most successful one. The victory over St. John ' s will be remembered for years, and the State Cham.pionship is something to be proud of. Every man on the squad deserves great credit for his hard, consistent work. To our coach, Curley Byrd, we can not give too much credit. He worked hard to put out a winning team and he did it. Curley was on the job at all times and we will always remember him as an excellent coach. We must not overlook our manager, Williams, and his assistant, Alontell, who kept the field in good shape, and were on the alert at all times ready to do any- thing for the squad. ' e thank the Faculty. Alumni and students of M. A. C. for their loyal support during the past football season. 119 •••.. • • ••••• On Friday they are cripples, they are hopeless broken wrecks, With half a dozen splintered arms and seven fractured necks.

" ' HOFFECKER. " Hoff ' s " ' smile will not wear off. Wherever we see him, in togs or not, he always carries that smile. On the gri diron, Hoff is especial!) ' noted for his wonderful ability to dodge and pick holes. Many times his opponent is watching the ends, and he goes dodg- ing through the line. At " half " he always shone, and he has made the required distance and thereby won many a game for M. A. C. by his ability to dodge. It was simply a case like this : When the other fellow tackled, Hoff was not there. We must not overlook his accuracy in catching passes. The boys always yelled. " Shoot it to Hoff. " Hoff will be greatly missed, for he was a consistent worker and was there with the speed. 0 121 " E. P. " Williams. • We insist that E. P. is tiie best linesman that ' M. A. C. has produced. During his career he has played a regular guard, tackle, end, and center. E. P. has never been given due credit, but nevertheless he was always on the job, and had his fellow man guessing all the time. He was a sure and hard tackder. At center the past season he played brilliantly on all occasions. His ac- curate passes paved the road to tlie State championship. E. P. ' s place will be hard to fill another season, as he was as strong and as true as steel. He is certainly wo-thy of an All-Maryland position. " Dave " Johnson. Here is a man who has shown his wonderful ability in all branches of athletics, Dave Johnson. During his three years at M. A. C. he has been a member of the football, baseball, track and basket- ball squads. He is more at home on the gridiron. Dave keeps quiet, but he can show you what is in him. He has shone both at end and in the back field while at college. He is very aggressive, has lots of pep, and lots of speed, always on the ball, and a severe tackier. Next year ' s squad will surely miss Dave for his steady work. 122 " flip " BOWLAND. Hip Bowland should make an excellent leader for 1914. During his three years at M. A. C. most of his time has been spent at the line and he is like a stone wall. His mighty weight and unknown strength has killed many a run through the lines. The past season he played " full " in two games and although inexperienced, he got away for some pretty good runs, and when he hit the opposing line, it van- ished. We wish Hip to have a successful year as leader and to Captain another Championship team. " ] Iaus " Maus. In Mans we had a most valuable man at right end. He was " in " fast, and hit them hard. Alany times he has killed chances to score by his mighty strength and speed. Mans is a believer in little talking, but shows the goods. The past season was really his first season on the gridiron and he deserves great credit in being al le to hold down an end. " Ship. " Shipley, " Let ' s have it ! Little pep ! Get your hands on that old pill ! " yelled Ship, day after day on the gridiron. He seems to be a born football player. Although ex- cellent in other branches of athletics, his wonderful pep and speed, for which he is noted, stand out most in football. Ship is our All-Maryland full back, and he certainly deserves the honor. He never fails, and is always there when called to take the pig skin . We regret we can- not keep this fellow, whom we all love, longer, but he is gone, though not forgotten. 123 Concerning Goats P ' or seven lean and hungry years, To bring our gridiron fame. Our warriors brave had toiled away To win the foremost game. Undaunted by defeat ' s smart sting, Which each year brought in turn. They fought the harder at each call, And laughed away the burn. The odds they gave in every strife Discouraged not their toils — They battled with the ' ' ringers " hired To bear away the spoils. Thus, onward, fighting for each inch, Six times they bit the ground, ' Till Nineteen Thirteen came and brought The seventh year aroimd. And now they line up on the field, Our warriors brave and gaunt, And watch those sneering " Pharisees " Their ill-gained banner flaunt. The struggle starts, both fierce and din ; Our warriors, brave and strong. Fight on as only men can fight Who fight to right a wrong. And hotter still the conflict grows ; The surging, seething mass, Divided now, and now compact, No runner ere can pass. But now we see each murdering clash Is weighing down the foe : We see their weary foot-steps fall More heavily and slow. But what is this that now we see? Oh, joyous to behold! Our full-back circles ' round the end And bears down on their goal. And then he clears the chalk-white line — Our yelling splits the air, For we can see our warriors brave Will win, and win it FAIR. The battle ' s done — we cheer our boys ' Till the voice has left the throat; But what care we? For M. A. C. Has got old St. John ' s goat! — Selwot. 124 BASEBALL i IX :x j , . - ' ' AJLili MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. .- k J - ' -i t .j " . A la ball S mmn T the call for candidates for the baseball team on March i6th, the largest squad ever seen in the history of M. A. C. reported to Coach Byrd. They sat around the dressing room patiently wait- ing for suits. These were issued and then there was a general rush to see who could sport a new suit first. All hurried to the athletic field and started into hard work to ' i== ' O ' to win a position on the nine. The nine is probably the best M. A. C. has ever produced. The men of last year ' s team are ' Captain Hofifecker, pitch; Shipley, third base; Knode, short stop, and Williams and Morris, outfielders. The new men who held jobs are Dearstyne, second base ; Montgomery, first base ; Mess, catch, and McHenry and Siegert, pitch. Coach Byrd soon whipped his team into excellent shape. A number of gamics had to be cancelled owing to the weather. This was quite disappointing to the team and to the students. The first game was played against Swarthmore at College on Friday, March 27th, and was lost 17 to 2. This did not discourage the team, but simply showed them that they had to get busy, and that they did. The next game was with J. H. U., which was won by 4 to 3, and paved the way for the Championship of Maryland. Then came the overwhelming defeat of Lehigh, 13 to o. The boys were in true form and every man played his position like a " big leaguer. " ' And so the season continued. The team met Universities f ' -om Georgia and West A ' irginia, and in all games made an excellent showing. They were all stifif teams but our nine met with great success in all the games. The state games were, of course, the most exciting and important, but they were gotten away with in fine style, and we still claim the Championship of Mary- land. The same rivalry existed between S. J. C. and M. A. C, which, of course, made the games verv exciting. Large crowds were present at both games and all admitted that they saw exciting and well fought battles. Captain Hoffecker did the bulk of the pitching, although ] IcHenry was a good running mate. He will be expected to show much more stuff another year after having had the experience of this year. Both faculty and students took great interest in the games, and stood by the team at all times. jManager Williams had one of the hardest schedules in the history of M. A. C, but his team took care of it in good style. Much credit is due our Manager for his consistent work. 127 MANAGER E. P.

On a previous page " Hoff " is given the credit of being a football player, but his real game is baseball. He is the best pitcher M. A. C. has ever had, and fields the ball like a short stop. He can also keep pace with any of them when it comes to using the stick. Many a M. A. Caesar has been thrilled with de- light when " Hofif, " wearing a broad smile, has com- pelled hard hitting teams to fall before him without a sinsle. ' " Reddy " Williams. Here we have a baseballist who has won his place on the M. A. C. squad by steady work. It was in 1913 that " Reddy " first " made good, " and since that time he has been one of our regular outfielders. " Reddy ' ' has proven a fast fielder and a sure catch when the ball was in his garden. Furthermore, he has scored many a run for M. A. C. by a timely hit. Especially is " Reds " ' noted for the racket he makes f rom his sta- tion in right field. Indeed, " Reds " will be sorel} ' missed when the baseball squad assembles for 1915. " Ship " Shipley, Again, we see " Ship " smile ; he is known all over the State as a baseball player and many times you can see the fielders get back when " Ship " steps up to the plate. He has won lots of games for M. A. C. by his stick work. At third base, he is at home and there are few that can " hit ' em " past old " Ship. " On the bases he is probably one of the fastest men M. A. C. has ever had. He always has " pep " and keeps the infield talking all the time. " Ship " will be greatly missed and his place will, indeed, be hard to fill. 129 i llillllllllllllllillllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll THE TRACK SQUAD !I|II!III|II!IIII| THE RELAY TEAM llllillllll|llllll|ll|l|llll|lllllllll|IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII 1(1 THE TRACK MEET ' ' ' - , the: 1914 REVE ILLE } i ..•SrarL., UR track squad this year was the largest ever produced by I. A. C. Not only the older boys came out, but a great many boys of the under classes reported, and we were very glad to see this, as in time they will make runners that will be a great credit to the College. The younger boys were not used much the past season, but Coach Byrd is only trying to give them experience, and again it might have injured them while so young. The track season was one of the most successful we have ever had. The season opened at the indoor meet held by the Fifth Regiment Athletic Association and the Johns Hopkins Uni- versity at Baltimore. Our relay team was defeated by the J. H. U., but Khode m.ade a great showing in the open quarter. The team came right back the following week and easily de- feated Richmond college at Richmond. The first team consisted of Captain Grace, Rufif, Knode and Morris. In the Georgetown indoor meet held at Convention Hall, we were represented bv four relay teams, besides a number of individual men. The first relay lost to CarHsle. The Juniors, composed of Gray, Dubel, Hart and Williams, put up a good race and would have won had it not been that Hart fell on the start, allow- ing too much lost ground for Williams to gain. In the individual events INIontell and Pennington showed up well. The fourth Annual Intercollegiate Track and Field ] Ieet was held on the Athletic field at J I. A. C. on Saturday afternoon. May 2, 1914. There were about 300 contestants and nearly 1,000 entries. It was the largest meet held in the South. All Maryland schools and high schools of Washington City were well represented. M. A. C. made a great showing in the Collegiate events. luch pleasure was afforded the spectators by watching the close races between the Colleges of Mary- land. We cannot help saying that the past season was a very successful one and we predict that the youngsters will make great runners for M. A. C. some day. 134 r LACROSSE 7 • «» « , ' ' « »4 rvt: — . THE 1914 REVEILLE } .} A llarrn000 HE past Lacrosse season has been one of the most successful since the sport entered M. A. C. The team had a number of exper- ienced players to start with and Capt. Truitt, acting as coach, has made a wonderful team. x lthough we lost three valuable players in Powell, Davis and Trimble, their places have been filled by capable men and the team was at its best this season. " Teddy " Gray showed wonderful work at goal. Although small, he has the nerve and blocks them off as well as some of the best goal keepers in the Eastern colleges. The colleges and universities that the team met are much out of our class, but even at that the show- ing has been wonderful. The team opened the season against Carlisle, and lost 8 to o. The Carlisle team is one of the strong- est in the country and considering the practice the team had had, this was a credit to the team, and to the College. We next met Baltimore City College and by fast work and accurate shots de- feated the Baltimore twelve, 3 to 2. It was a great game, and our boys showed that they were there with the goods when properly classed. This was a most exciting game from start to finish, and the College boys were Cjuite surprised to see us put up such a strong game. The team as a whole has made wonderful progress. The stick work is smooth and accurate and the boys played with the proper spirit throughout the entire schedule. Although our Lacrosse team is not a championship one, it is one we should be proud of. It has worked nobly during the past season and judging from the team s it has met the showing is very gratifying. This year we lose two good men. Truitt and Coster, but with the substitutes that showed good form this year, the team should be even stronger another season. Much credit is due Captain Truitt for his steady work and, the progress of the team is due to his capable coaching. We must not forget Manager Fletcher, who worked diligently to produce a good team. 136 l_x ::i 3m ,2. £J|_3_j£j -). fif m; ryland agricultural college. Mt ' « C Manager FLETCHER March 28— Mt.

During the past season he was Captain, and also acted as Coach and turned out a strong team which has been a credit to the College. He deserves credit for his steady and hard work. As a player he was hard to beat, always on the job. A man who kept the other fellow guessing at all times. He was fast and as an attack man was hard to beat. We will greatly miss Truitt in our line-up next vear and his position will be hard to fill. 137 (i - n 8 . AC - - MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE.

C. the past season did not make a good showing and still not bad. Although the team did not win a scheduled game, when we think of the handicaps the team was under we cannot complain. The fire of 1912 having destroyed the armory, the gymnasium had to be taken for that purpose, so there was no place available for practice. Only three times during the entire season did the team have any practice whatever, and then it had to go to Hyattsville. , Under these circumstances one could not expect to see a winning team. The team was composed of excellent material — probably the best M. A. C. has ever had, but they simply could not play with- out practice. The team was composed of Captain Shipley, Cole, Tull, Johnson, Hunteman, Dearstyne, Vincent and Bopst. Dear- styne, Cole and Vincent were excellent forwards and were on the job at all times. With the proper training they would have been wonders. Ship- ley and Bopst did the best work at guards. They were very aggressive and kept the opponents guessing at all times. Hunteman held the center position, while Cole could be used anywhere. He plays his best at forward, but also made an excellent center. Tull and Johnson show up best at the guard positions. The team met colleges from all over the State, District and Virginia, and although it received some decisive defeats, the opposing teams always knew that they had been through a struggle at the end. The boys simply lacked team work because of the lack of practice and nothing else. They always were on the job working hard with plenty of " pep " and always did their best, but without a bit of training they could not be expected to be winners. Captain Shipley deserves credit for the manner in which he stuck by the team despite the difficulties. Manager Tull should be complimented on the excellent schedule he put out. 141 BASKETBALL TEAM Mt. St. Joseph ' s College January lo, College Catholic University January 14, Washington Mt.

A. C. In the past each year the courts were put in shape, and an annual tournament held to decide the college champion- ship, but tennis has never been ranked as a college sport. No attemjit was made prior to this year to secure tennis matches with other schools, and consequently there was but a meager interest taken in the game at J I. A. C. However, during the past fall a team was organized under the direction of B. A. Ford, who was elected captain. Matches were played with Johns Hopkins University and with Gallaudet Col- lege, the former match being lost and the latter being tied. Dur- ing the spring matches were arranged with St. John ' s College, Catholic University and Gallaudet College. The courts were put in shape as early as the conditions per- mitted and an unusual amount of interest was taken in the game. While at the present writing no prophecy can be made as to the success of the team, it can be said that some very good material has been shown. The team will be greatly handicapped by the lack of expert and constant coaching, as it was not deemed expedient to secure a regular coach for the team. The annual tournament will be held in June, and, judging by the number of candidates that have reported for the team, this should prove an exceedingly in- teresting contest. The tournament of 1913 was won by E. E. Powell, ' 13, with C. W. Ilgenfritz, ' 17, a close second. 143 THE TENNIS TEAM S nma i rlj iuk 1914 April 29 Gallaudet, at Washington May 9 St John ' s, at College Park May 16 Catholic University, at Washington May 22 Gallaudet, at College Park May 30 St. John ' s, at Annapolis June 15 M.

C. is fraught with many difficulties. There is always an element in any college that violently opposes any system of extended athletics, claiming that it represents a useless item of expense to the college and that to engage in athletics demands too much of the student ' s time and efforts. Especially do these people delight in abusing football, asserting that it is a barbarous game and that it is decidedly detrimental to the student. But anv one holding this view concerning athletics is either not aware of the facts or else is unduly prejudiced. In its relation to the college, athletics holds a most important position. Per- haps the greatest good athletics does for a college itself is to act as an advertising medium. The American college today that is not prominent in athletics cannot expect to draw a good, wide-awake student body. The College matriculate almost invariably watches the sporting columns of the daily press and judges a college by its athletic standard. Other things being equal he will invariably attend the college most successful in its athletic sports. Another great advantage of athletics to the college is that it forms a healthy college spirit. The student gets accustomed to rooting for his college on the gridiron and the diamond, and he naturally will continue to boost his Alma Mater in every department. The advantage of any good system of athletics to the student is obvious. Not only does it give the students good, healthy exercise and act as a proper diver- sion from their studies, but athletics give the student invaluable moral train- ing. It teaches him to meet both defeat and success. It teaches him the funda- mental principle of success, to fight for a definite end and to fight hard. The athletic department at M. A. C. has developed to a great extent in the past few years, and it is to be hoped and expected that this good work will be continued. With the new, fully equipped gymnasium that is now planned, M. A. C. should stand at the head of its collegiate class in every branch of sport. Furthermore, the establishment of the new gymnasium will facilitate the en- largement of the scope of athletics so that every student may have ample oppor- tunities of engaging in some athletic sport. With the hearty support of President Patterson, and the able coaching of Mr. Byrd, we may soon expect that M. A. C. athletics will be raised to even a higher plane than they now occupy. 148 50CIAIS [F [F [r OOOp OO 00-feoOO OOOS OO OO- OOO (((Hj QOO -00 oo- ooo ooo -oo oo- ooo IF [F =fl.[F OOOp OO OO- OOO OOOg S-OO 00-feoOO ((())) OOOg Voo 00-f30OC 000( 00 oo- ooo , I ' J) ( Jc-ry- .-J ...n. .- h ,; -}.. THE 1914 REVEILLE " - ««liui«iilll A HAT does college society do for a student? Is it a benefit or a hindrance to him while at college? Can its effects be seen in his future life? These are a few of the questions every Freshman has to answer for himself, when he enters college. It may be said that there is scarcely anything wdiich will do a student more good than taking a part in the social life at college. Of course, there are some who will say that all it accomplishes is to take the student ' s mind from his studies and cause him to neglect his work. If he tries to take a leading part in the society affairs at all times and is always looking for some dance, recep- tion or tea to attend, then this may be the case. For wdiat is there which is not harmful if indulged in to excess? To show you, however, that this is not usually the case, look into the college life of some of the boys who fail. In the majority of cases you will find that these boys took no part in the social life of their college. The men who do enter the social life at college seem to realize more fullv what is expected of them and their self-respect seems to be more keenly alive. The social man is also much niore fit to lead a better life at college, for he will not have the time that he would otherwise have to get into trouble, and unless he leads the proper kind of life, he will not be admitted to the best society. The fellows who were at one time glad to take him out with them, will no longer care to intro- duce him to their friends, and he will be forced to do one of two things. He will either reform or join the ranks of those who, for one reason or another, have nothing to do with society. If he follows the latter course, when the fellows he used to go with a e out calling, or attending a dance, he will very likely be giving himself up to one of the m.any temptations which the college man has to face. There are just as many temptations for the college student as for any one else, and, furthermore, it is at this time that he must choose his future path, for the habits formed at this time are very apt to be permanent. Therefore, if for no other reason than to lessen his tem ptations, he should join in the social life of his college. This will also be apt to encourage a tendency toward neatness on his part, that might otherwise be neglected. 150 MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. Now let us take two men who have both taken the same course, and whose scholastic standing Is the same. Let a friend of these two invite them to town to meet a prospective employer. Which will most probably get the position? In the majority of cases there is little doubt but that it will be the one who has taken part in the social life at college. For he will possess a neatness and an ease of bearing, which will give him the advantage. In fact, there is something about the man who has been in society that distinguishes him at once from those who have not. There seems to be some quality in man which is brought out only through association with the fair sex, and without which he seems in some indefinable way to be incomplete. When a man leaves college and goes out into the world, he never knows what may be required of him. It may be that his position will require him to make speeches, attend banquets, receptions, etc. If he failed to embrace the oppor- tunity he had at college to participate in these things he is very apt to find himself in an embarrassing position. It is. then, when all too late, he begins to realize that by not taking advantage of the social life at college he has failed to listen to opjiortunity when it knocked at his door ; and as the old saying goes, " Opportunity knocks but once, and he who would succeed must listen, else fail to open the door and opportunity passes on. " Having looked at this question thoroughly from both sides. It may be said in conclusion that, although this will not cover every case — for there are exceptions to nearly all rules — the man who has taken no part in the social life of his college has failed to obtain the full value of his college course. 151 L ®If UnsBbnurg Qlluh T Avas in the year 1891 that the admirers of the Muse Terpsichore first organized the Rossbourg Club. It was named after the old Rossbourg Inn, which was so famous in the days of Washing- ton, and which is now one of the buildings of the Maryland Agri- cultural Experiment Station. Amid the days of study, work, and anxiety, the evening of a Rossbourg- dance is to the college men as an oasis to wanderers in the desert. As they sway in perfect rhythm to the music of the dance, or gaze into the sparkling eyes of some fair M. A. Caesarine, their worries and cares fall from them like veils. This year saw the introduction of the one-step, and several other modern dances into the Rossbourg Club. It was a long, and a hard fight between the conservatives and the progressives, but at last it was decided that the new dances should enter on trial. The conservatives claimed that in all probability the untarnished record of the Rossbourg would be ruined. The members of the club, however, soon made it plain that there was nothing more dear to them than the upholding of this record, and there has not been a dance that could be criticised adversely. The season just ended has been one of the most prosperous and enjoyable the Rossbourg has ever known. To the Faculty, to its other friends, and last but not least, to the girls, whose presence has made Rossbourg dances what they are, the members of the Club extend their sincere thanks. 152 L ' - H :)v.v ) vi " ' MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. f .JiJ ,. i»«fe, ri( « ' «W " " " " " " ' " ™ r • - .. » " ' i A S00Bb0urg il mb rs A R.

ITH the arrival in January of a General Secretary who could give personal attention and sufficient time to the affairs of the Associa- tion, it began to assume more importance in College affairs. A temporary office was furnished and provided with many games, books and papers. The headcjuarters has been in constant use — a place to enjoy one ' s self, to whistle and sing and feel free from restraint, subject only to the recjuirement of manliness. Rec- ognizing the Y. ] I. C. A. ideal of manliness as being opposed to mollycoddilism, and submitting to a reasonable standard, the student body has responded heartily to the slightest suggestion of the Secretary and in every way has indicated its good spirit. The student cabinet has worked loyally. Meetings have been held every Sunday at 3.30 P. M. and Congressmen, ministers and business men from Washington and neighboring towns have spoken on religious and popular topics. Special music has been provided for most of the programs, and two Sundays have been given over to sacred concerts. Receptions for students and faculty helped to promote acquaintanceship and to provide social recreation. Due largely to the fact that but few students are housed on the campus, the attendance at Bible stiidy classes was much poorer than can be countenanced next year when the new dormitory is in use. An exciting membership contest has brought the membership up until it em- braces a great majority of the student body and has made possible the purchase of a wrestling mat, boxing gloves, and other desirable equipment. The employ- m ent secretary has helped many boys to find work, but the bureau can be made much more helpful than conditions and lack of time have yet permitted. The Y. W. C. A. will go into its new quarters in Calvert Hall in June. It will have a large room for pool and carrom tables, a reading and writing room, an office for the Secretary, and a room for wrestling and boxing. It will issue a hand-book containing athletic records, schedules, and detailed information as to all the athletics of the School. The slogan will ever be, " Stronger boys, happier boys, manlier men.

The Alumni Editor has complete charge of the page published under the supervision of the Alumni Association. The Triangle came into existence five years ago and has flour- ished since. When the paper originated the Business INIanage- ment was under control of the Senior Class, but as this conflicted with the Reveille, it was transferred to the Junior Class, which has since retained it. The Triangle has steadily improved until this year the best paper ever published at M. A. C. is being issued. The Triangle is a four page paper and is devoted solely, with the exception of the Alumni page, to news around College. The Editor-in-Chief is elected for a term of one year from the Senior Class. The other Editors are elected from the lower classes for the same term. All matter that is submitted has to be approved by a member of the Faculty who has supervision over all student publications. The Triangle has been a great influence for good at M. A. C, and it promises to be a greater influence in the future. The paper has a large circulation among the students, Alumni and friends of the College. The Triangle has, this year, been far better than in previous years, not only better in quality of the material, but several six-page issues have been published, thus increasing the attractiveness of the paper. This year the Triangle has been right in the thick of the fight for the appro- priation for the College and has done creditable work in this respect. The Triangle is deserving of much praise and it has the best wishes of every one for a successful future. 157 BBH 1 BH ■H IH W 1 j v H H H v Jfl 1 ■ H H ' ] H ■ HH 1 Hi ' l -i H H H h ' J 1 Ip l |r ' 1 l xC ' ! 1 B y I K.H m 11 B 1 1 1 Hs 1 B « i ll H d yH HIH Ii K ' iJBI 1 1 1 ukB IHI THE TRIANGLE STAFF J.

C. fire of November 29th, 1912, the College MSA Oi started upon a new era of development, and concurrent with this development there was recognized the need of closer friendship among groups of students. The students soon realized that this close friendship was to be found in fraternal life. Prior to this time the College authorities frowned upon any attempt to establish fraternities at M. A. C. It was generally believed that there was no place for a fraternity in the barrack life of a military school. The students were constantlj associated with one another in the barracks and there was really no need for other ties to bind them closer together. But with the destruction of the barracks all of this was changed. Instead of living together in one body, the students were scattered throughout the vicinity in groups of three or four. Old ties of comradeship were broken, and close friendship among the members of the old groups was made impossible. It was to establish a new opportunity for close friendship among the students as well as to incorporate the many other advantages of fraternity life that the fraternities were organized. In general, it may be said that the principal advan- tages of fraternities are : first, a fraternity properly organized gives the mem- bers a chance to thoroughly know their closest friends and associates ; second, it develops in the members a reverence for discipline and self control ; and, third, it tends to foster a high scholastic standard. The fraternity man secures the close companionship of men of like interest and ambitions, and is freed from the dangers of a purely selfish and solitary life. Of course, along with these advan- tages there are dangers in fraternity life which must be carefully avoided if one ' s fraternity is not to be a detriment to him. The Gamma Pi was the first fraternity to be founded at M. A. C. It was organized and recognized by the College Faculty on September 18, 19 13. The Alpha Phi fraternity was the next to be organized, being recognized on October 28, 1913. The Iota Sigma was next, recognized on Januarv 15, 1914. These three fraternities are all of a local nature, and have so far remained as examples 160 MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. ' - - ' - - ' 1.WV4 , -.,.... ' . A of the best of fraternity life. In each fraternity several members of the College Faculty have been elected honorary members, and have greatly aided their respective organizations bv advice. The fraternities have so far been successful in every sense of the word. This success has doubtless been due to the care with which the members of the fraterni- ties have been selected. Fraternity membershi] at M. A. C. has not been based upon a large pocket book, as is too frequently the case, but upon the true worth of the man. The result has been that the membership of the M. A. C. fraternities is made up of high minded, capable students. Thus far the fraternities have made no efifort to get control of other student activities and it is to be hoped that this evil will never enter into fraternity life at M. A. C. Perhaps the greatest danger of fraternity life arises principally from its clan- nishness, which can easily develop into snobbishness. While this evil has not been apparent at M. A. C, it will be necessary to guard against it very carefully. The fraternity members should make every efifort to counteract this tendency by engaging actively in other phases of student life. The phenomenal growth of fraternities in American colleges demonstrates that their teachings are wholesome and beneficial. Founded and maintained upon the very highest principles, fraternities must exert a powerful influence on their members to bring out the best that is in them, both during their college careers and in after life. Even during the past year the beneficial influence upon some of the fraternity members has been evident. It was necessary that each fraternity maintain a certain reputation, and it was soon seen that high scholastic standards of the members contributed greatly to that reputation. Thus, one of the great advantages of the fraternities has been to raise the scholastic standard of the members. The other good influence of the M. A. C. fraternities, as of any other fraternities, has been active. It is to be hoped and expected that, with the fra- ternity membership made up of strong, capable and high minded men, the standard of frate-nity life at jNI. A. C. will not be lowered. 161 THE GAMMA PI FRATERNITY . Jh ' " ' - d ' i " S. li x C: ' My RYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. ii -J - ' - (Samma p iFrat rtttty FACULTY MEMBERS Dr. Harry J.

Its aim is to promote all things musical and dramatical. Considering the lack of interest in this line at the start it has met with much success. At the first meeting the following elections took place: B. A. Ford, President; P. A. Hauver, Vice President ; F. J. McKenna, Secretary and Treasurer. A Board of Directors was appointed, consisting of: B. A. Ford, Hauver, Rasmussen and -Deeley. The first active move of the club was to give an informal dance. The music was furnished by the College Orchestra. The dance was generally enjoyed by about 2 " couples. The next move was to promote a minstrel show. ]Mr. F. T. Crow, of Washington City, was secured as coach, and in a limited amount of time turned out an excellent show. The show was divided into two 169 ij 0) ( .-• ' I) J) jj Jfr) i - j , ,n., ; . h Tr j THE 1914 REVEILLE i A ' " sfkfti. parts. The first was on the order of the usual minstrel show, with a chorus and two sets of end men. The second was a scene mimicing a negro school. The end men were, Fletcher, Peacock, Mess and McKenna, with Dunnington as inter- locutor. The chorus was composed of Rohn, Segar, Edelman, Morris, Truitt, Bradley, Peter, Pierson, Barrett, Kirkley. Sando, Dubel, Willis, McHenry. Sun- stone, Day, Kelly, and the School Scene was composed of Crow, as Teacher ; Peacock, Mess, McKenna and Fletcher, boys ; and Schaeffer, Rohn, Pierson and Morris, girls. The orchestra was composed of Strohm (director), Brown, Hauver, Buchwald, Roberts, Schaeffer, Donnett, Clark and Deelev. The show was started with an overture by the orchestra, which then struck into the open- ing choruses, which were arranged in the following order: " School Song. " to the tune of " Maryland, My Maryland; " " Dancing Around; " " Down in Chat- tanooga ; " " Get Out and Get Under ; " " Sit Down ; You ' re Rocking the Boat ; " " Kindly Direct Me to Broadway ; " and " Those Pullman Porters on Parade. " The first set of end men (Mess and McKenna) were then introduced. Mc- Kenna reeled off a set of excellent jokes, each 6f which brought its applause. Kirkley then sang " The Rose That Made Me Happy Is the Rose That Made Me Sad, " which was the hit of the evening. Mess then handled a set of jokes with excellent ability, following them with a song. " You Can ' t Get Away From It. " This was followed by a line of jokes from McKenna, who then sang " That Ragtime Dream. " Mess then brought forth more laughs with a number of good jokes. Barrett next sang " That Bully Woolly Wild West Show, ' .. ' as- sisted by McHenry, Rohn and Day. The second set of end men ( Fletcher and Peacock) were then introduced. Peacock led off with some excellent jokes. Segar then sang " Mandalay " with great success. Next Fletcher got off some fine specimens of wit. Barrett followed with " A Little Love, a Little Kiss, " assisted by the M. A. C. quartet. Peacock then told another set of good jokes and followed them with a soiig, " That Midnight Ragtime Ride of Paul Revere. " Fletcher then told some more jokes with equal success and was ' followed with a dance by the end men. Then the chorus sang a finale to the tune of " Good Bye, My Tango. " The curtain was drawn amid a great deal of applause. After a short intermission, during which Mr. Strohm rendered a clarionet solo that was enjoyed by all, the curtain was again raised, showing a school room containing four students ' desks and one for the teacher. Mr. Crow then entered with the dignified look of the negro schoolmaster. His facial expressions were especially comical. He proceeded to ring the bell of school and the students entered. They all played their parts well and some excellent wit was shown. Mess was especially good, and he seemed to have the spirit that makes an ex- cellent comedian. Peacock did a clog dance and sang a song entitled " Har- mony Joe. " Mess sang " Constantly " and, as usual, got a good laugh. Schaeffer 170 i_2L _I j. ■ v- ' ' • ((,« MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. i ' V -V jk 4 rendered several piano solos. Crow then sang ' Dixie and the show ended with a dance by the pnpils. • Not too much credit can be given Mr. Strohm and his orchestra. Mr. Strohm was working under difficulties due to lack of time and really turned out an excellent orchestra. The orchestra has several engagements to fill in May and June, and we have no doubt but that they will cover them- selves with credit. With the start the Music Club now has there is every reason to believe that it will be a tremendous success and will grow each year until it will be the prin- cipal student organization in college. 171 " " ' « ' .L ( ' o) (V r- » J) ( Jm ' - .il .7 ' ' Vir: " ' ' -- 4 THE 1914 REVEILLE } A " !ftfi(u , • ' ■IKh ,ai M ' ' rtfc ®I| Qlolbg lanb HE band was organized seven years ago, and each successive year has marked an improvement in its proficiency until this year it has reached a very high standard of excellence. Tlie band is composed entirely of students. It is primarily a military organiza- tion and plays for all the military ceremonies and customarily gives several concerts at the college during the year. Although the members of the band are excellent musicians, their success is due to a large extent to the efforts of Mr. Charles L. Strohm. who came to the M. A. C. two years ago. When he entered, the band was good, but we could not boast of a band that equalled any college band in the East. But in a short time an impprovement could be easily noticed and today the ] Iary- land Aggies can boast of one of the best, if not the best, college band in the East. At Government inspection last year the band was congratulated by the inspector, who said that it was undoubtedly one of the best college bands that he had ever heard. There has also been organized an orchestra that compares favorably with the band. M. A. C. is especially fortunate in having a man who will willingly sacri- fice himself to further the good of the College as will its bandmaster. Mr. vStrohm is unusually qualified for a successful career. He has established an enviable reputation as a clarionetist and is doing equally excellent work in his present capacity as bandmaster. ] Ir. Strohm, who is only in his 28th year, has risen in his profession with great rapidity. He started his studies when eleven years old and was quickly added to the ranks of the Fredericksburg, Pa., band. In 1902 he joined the Eighth Regiment Band. N. G. P. From 1904 to 1906 he was with the Michigan Military Academy Band. From 1907 to 1909 he played with the Perse Band of Lebanon, Pa., and after this he became chief trumpeter and assistant to Mr. George F. Tyrrell, chief musician of the 15th U. S. cavalry band. From there he was chosen as one of the ten delegates from the United States Army to attend the New York School of ] Iusical Science and Art. Since May ist. 1912, Mr. Strohm has had charge of the M. A. C. band wnth striking success. There can be little " doubt that his natural talents and unusual qualifications will place him in the front ranks of the young school of bandmasters in a short time. Mr. Strohm is also a composer of music, having composed many excellent marches and also several songs. And, above all, ]Mr. Strohm is a true gentle- man : and whatever else may be said he will always live in our hearts as a true man. The I. A. Caesars wish to thank Mr. Strohm for his excellent work at our College in bringing the band to its present high standard. 172 L ' - .; " l " ' . J i.-O- ' - ' ' 0.

The first lecture was given by Professor Creese, and his subject was " The History of Electric Lighting. " Professor Creese, being the dean of the Electrical Engineering Course at College, gave a most interesting lecture, and one that was enjoyed by all. We were very for- tunate in obtaining for our next speaker Mr. Claykoal, who represented a heat- ing firm. His subject was " The Webster System of Steam Circulation. " Tliis lecture was made most interesting by lantern slides. Several other lectures were given during the year; among the lecturers were Prof. Springer, Mr. Mutt and Cadets Green and Williams. Professor Creese gave another interesting lecture on " The Advancement in Electric Lighting. ' ' The meetings were held during periods set aside for the Engineering Lectures, and were always well attended by the Senior, Junior and So]Dhomore Classes. The object of this society is the cultivation of a more active interest in Engineer- ing work, and from all appearances the society is rapidly advancing. 176 DRYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. rOIMWHMlW (Ett mtral Bamtyi R.

(i(i (LmI J Since the foundation of the society the chemical students of I. i )5= :: ( have shown great interest in its development, this interest having been stimulated by the presentation before the society of a number of lectures by some of the best known chemists in this section of the country. Xot onlv were the services of men high in the profession of chemistry secured, but lectures were also given alternately by Junior and Senior students of chemistry. These lectures have not only been a source of knowledge to the students of chemistry, but the members of the Junior and Senior Classes have especially reaped benefit from them, for by giving lectures themselves they have gained valuable experience of which they will surely be in need in their future work. The Chemical Society has been a success from every viewpoint this year and we feel assured by the interest that has been shown that such will be the case in the following vears. 177 " • ' Mm. " -- .

' ' THE 1914 REVEILLE ' vi l7 ; j_ i ' tnrk JuJigtttg T was in the fall of 1907 that several members of the Senior Class wanted to enter the stock judging contest held under the auspices of the National Dairy Show at Chicago. They were laughed at, however, for their pains. It seemed preposterous that Maryland should enter a stock judging team in a national contest. In the fall of 1908 Mr. Hibberd took charge of this branch of study. Mr. Hibberd came from Canada, where they lay particu- lar stress on this subject in all of the agricultural colleges. Consequently stock judging received quite a boost. In the fall of 1910 Prof. Ruffner came to the College and carried stock judging another step further. In the fall of 191 1 Cap- tain Sylvester, who was then President of the College, was heartily in favor of sending a stock judging team to Chicago to compete in the national contest. The Board of Trustees was a little doubtful as to the expediency of the move, but finally appropriated $250.00 for this purpose. The team was comiposed of .Messrs. Anderson, Kemp, and Stanton, with Prof. Ruffner in charge. These men went into the contest hardly expecting to win, but all determined to do their best. When the results were read, the Maryland Agricultural College had won first places in both Jerseys and Aryshires, Mr. Stanton had won a $400.00 scholarship and the silver loving cup given by the Jersey Cattle Club. In the fall of 1912 another team was sent to Chicago in charge of Prof. Ruffner. The team was composed of Messrs. Johnson, Davis and Koehler. who again were a credit to the College. In the fall of 19 13 a team was sent to the Hagerstown Fair, where they were in competition with Pennsylvania State and Delaware Colleges. The team con- sisted of five men: Messrs. Brown, Buchwald, Knode, Fletcher and Deeley. Although the team stood second in the contest, they won enough prize money to more than pay expenses. Prof. Ruft ' ner then repeated his two previous trips to Chicago, taking with him a team composed of Messrs. Fletcher, Knode and Deeley. This team stood fifth in the contest. Besides these annual contests the Laurel Fair holds one every year, and students of M. A. C. usually take their share of the prizes. It can be seen from this, that stock judging is rapidly growing in importance at M. A. C, and next fall there will be more competition for the team than ever before. With the present material we have fine prospects for a good team to bring- back the honors from Chicago and any other contest that the College might enter. 178 THE STCCK JUDGING TEAM I z J) (- Jrr-) THE 1914 REVEILLE ®I|0 Agrtrultural CUIub D. L. Johnson President J. E. SniLLiNGER ] ' icc-Prcsidcnt J. H. Knode Secretary-Treasurer S. E. Day Scr ' eant-at-Anns V Maryland is ever to l e truly rich and prosperous it must be through her agricultural resources, because nature has not given her large mining areas or large water power possibilities, but, instead, has spread upon her breast vast fields rich in those constituents necessary to the production of bountiful agricultural harvests. The greatest need [Maryland knows is that of trained minds and willing hands to till her fruitful soil. To accomplish this end she has provided an institution devoted to the training of her young men along just such lines ; and, within this institution, these young men have begun to see the value of intimate association and cooperation, and, accordingly, have established an organi- zation which they hope may be productive of results tending to work for the betterment of Maryland ' s agricultural interests. This organization drew its first breath upon March 23rd, 19 14, when the agricultural students met and formed a club with 60 charter members. The club is a student organization and ill be run by those students taking agricidture. [Meetings are held twice each month, on the first and third Tuesdays. The benefits to be derived from this club are many, especially for the upper classman, since most of his work is lecturing or in some manner telling others how to do things. At each meeting one member is given notice that he will deliver a lecture the following meeting. This will give everv member experience in ad- dressing a large crowd, so that when, as a graduate, he goes back to the farm he mav have the ability to express his opinion. All new ventures must attract criticism and. thereby, attention. So. with this thought in mind, we leave off work for the present year, trusting that wdien we assemble at a first meeting next September new students and old alike may join hands in an earnest effort to make our organization a ]DOwerful organ, which shall work zealously for the development of Maryland ' s greatest asset — her agricultural possibilities.

" It seems that when a girl once beholds my sunnv locks, an irresistible something touches a ten- der spot and sets those little chords of afifection vibrating. You know I shall always feel grateful to you for bringing us together, and say: Do you reckon Jack thinks he is the real article with her? r»ut wont he feel sore when he finds out that I ' ve won! Yes, and in a walk. " ' Twas on the Fridav afternoon following the above conversation that this " fusser " received a " special delivery ' ' just as he entered Science Hall for labora- tory work. His joy knew no bounds, and forgetting himself and his surroundings, he let forth a deuce of a yell. " See, fellows, what ' S — he ' has written me. I ' ll read it to you, so liere goes ! " Washington, D. C. Dearest: — No doubt you will recall all the pleasant moments we spent together on the evening of last Saturday, when we had a prolonged heart-to-heart talk as we sipped ginger-ale ( ?) mingled with club sandwiches and good fellowship. Yes, and the long talk about the Rossbourg dance, which I enjoyed so much, and now once more, you will look back upon that pleasant evening anrl recall our tour of this dear old city, Washington, to which I owe so much. For, while here only a few short months, I can honestly say there is one gentleman to whom I owe a few of the most pleasant evenings of my life. You may deem it rude, no doubt, this seeming forwardness on my part ; but, honestly, my dear boy, I could not refrain from sending you a few lines to express my appreciation for the grand times I ' ve had. I had hoped that during our accjuaintance and various conversations I would have been fortunate enough to have created an impression reciprocating the one you left with me, and somehow, as the days have lingered on, often have I watched and waited for just a few lines from ou — but all in vain. Now, that heart chords have been stretched to their highest tension, like the strings of a violin, when one more twist upon the keys would result in a fatal termination — in such a condition has my heart been pitched since that fatal night — I find it impossible to stand it any longer and feel that I must again see you, if only for just a few short moments, for I have lots to tell you that I can ' t write. It is really important that I see ou this evening. Will expect you at eight — - here at the house. . , r ■ ■, Smcerely, your friend, S. H. E. P.

Wants me to come and relieve the tension of her heart. ' Will I go ? You bet I will ! I ' m going- to show the letter to Jack also, and set him bugs, too. " The hours of the afternoon seemed loath to join their " innumerable prede- cessors. " " Would they ever pass? " he thought. The Lab seemed to hold no attraction ; and everything was even more boring than usual. Then dinner hour. He arrived early to " avoid the rush " and the waiting to be served was seemingly a decade. After the meal was over, which was soon, for his appetite was gone, he made his way to his room to dress. " Where are my hose? I can ' t find a pair that suits me. Have you a new pair you will lend me? Everything seems to go wrong when a fellow wishes to make a hit by his best looks. How do you like my hair cut? " " Oh! it ' s great, " agrees his room mate, " you are O. K. " As promptly as a fire department, he ' s ofif for the twenty of seven car, and calling back, says " Don ' t leave the lights on for I ' ll not return until late. " It is yet an hour and twent} minutes before eight o ' clock, but our hero is pulling his hair and meditating nervously to himself. As he passes a corner at Fourteenth and Connecticut Avenue, he meets Jack, and giving him the " Sardonic Grin, " hastens toward his destination. Next we find him passing to and fro on Connecticut Avenue, with watch in hand, heart in throat, waiting for the last fifteen minutes to pass. At last he gains entrance and sends up his card. Now comes the real suspense until the sought-for one appears. This is not long, for now " S — he " comes tripping down the stairs — a vision of loveliness. Extending his hand, as he advances to meet her, he says: " Well, dear, I ' ve come to relieve the tension ' upon the old violin strings. ' " " Mr. — I don ' t understand, ' ' she returned in surprise. " What do you mean? " " Why, don ' t you remeniber writing me this morning? " " I certainly do not, " was the reply. " Do vou recognize this, ' ' he asked, handing over the letter. It slowly dawns upon " his majesty " what had been done. " Who is the rascal who did this, " he exclaimed. " Oh, S — : Come let ' s go out and enjoy the evening. " he pleads. But she has another engagement, so he returns to school somewhat crestfallen and exer- cising his brain in order to concoct a plausible story to hide his disappointment. " What made you come back so early? " asked his room mate, when he returned. " Well, after thinking it over, I was suspicious that it was a joke, so I ' phoned her and found out all about it. So the joke is on the ' Perpetrators, ' and I ' d just like to break that — ' s mug. " 190 i_2a . ' " ' j) o.- ' . d " ' " ' S , (if i—i r[( ' j ; C- MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE.

As though a wide-mouthed darkie had fallen in — a well. His things are all a jumble, the bed is up-side-down. The door is ofT its hinges, the mirror ' s fly-specked brown, The floor has not for ages known the presence of a broom — He chews his old tobacco and spits around the room ; Then goes up to the window and tip-toes to look out. He sees the automobiles a ' shootin ' ' round about. And as he gazes thusly, there floats up to his ear The C[uarterback ' s new signals, in tones both crisp and clear. He turns his head a little, and on the field he sees The yellow sweaters gleamin ' , and buzzin ' ' round like bees ; He murmurs indistinctly, " It ' s hard to study right — I wondei- why I didn ' t attempt this job last night? " But time is quickly fleeting, he turns back to his task, Which is about as interesting as is an empty flask ; For he must have tomorrow — no matter what else be — To turn in to his teacher, some home-made poetry. He does not like blind Milton, he does not like Ed. Poe, Before he ' d read Bill Shakespeare, he ' d exercise a hoe ; He grunts and groans in mis ' ry — it matters not a rip — He ' s got to hand the goods in, or else he ' ll get a " zip. " So once again he ' s seated upon his squeaky chair ; Old poems he ' s running through with, each leaf he turns with care: But nothing seems to suit him, ' ' till from the field he hears, " We ' re going to have a scrim.mage ! Come, boys, and give some cheers !

SELWOT. 191 ' ' ««aj b- ' v A THE 1914 REVEILLE An 3(nt nit m mttlj t x ' vbUbbuxb HE editors of the " Reveille. " being- impressed with the untiring- activity and distinguished achievements of the members of the Faculty of M. A. C, sent a reporter to interview each member of the Faculty to request him to dictate a short but specific answer to the following- question : " What has been your greatest ambition in hfe? " While a number of the gentlemen could not be found, and while several others were too modest to answer, the reporter succeeded in interviewing " some of the most prominent professors, and secured from them the answers to the question as set forth below. The only change that the editors have taken the liberty to make in the replies to the question as dictated by the several gentlemen was to correct i8 grammatical errors that occurred in one of the replies. The reporter, not being able to find President Patterson in his office, went to his home, where he had to wait for an hour and a half while the Doctor was taking his third lesson in tango dancing under the direction of his prospective son-in-law. Finally Dr. Patterson, flushed from the exercise but beaming his satisfaction, entered the room, greeted the reporter most courteously, and cheerfully answered the question as follows : " The greatest ambition of my life has been to overcome, by constant care and self-discipline, an inordinate tendency towards over-exuberance of spirits. I early earned the name of ' Madcap Harry. ' ] Iy natural tendency has always been to laugh too much, to play too many pranks, to punch people in the ribs when Fm talking to them, to tell jokes at the faculty meetings, and to do all such undig- nified and kittenish things which might be excusable in a child, but which a man of my age should long since have put away. I hope some day to get myself better in hand. At least to do so is the crowning ambition of my life. " The reporter thanked Dr. Patterson for the interview, and was in the act of leaving when the President called to him, " By the way, young man, you might add that T have some ambition towards getting a million dollars for the M. A. C. some day. " Encouraged by this interview, the reporter next waited on Prof. Spence. As usual, the Vice-President was very genial and began answering the reporter ' s question before he had finished asking. " E-r-r, young man, ' " said he, " I have one overweening ambition of my Hfe — a great inexpressible desire — a never ending hope- — and that is to make an inven- tion. I have worked night and day for the last ten years, to the exclusion of everything- else, to invent a non-inflammable cloth. I have had every variety of 192 : MARYLAND AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE. k _ .

" The Professor seemed to have finished, but the curiosity of the reporter led hiim to say, " But, Professor, what do you want to do with such a non-inflammable variety of goods? " thinking that possibly the Mce-President was making unusual preparations for the future. " Oh, " said the Professor, " I forgot to tell you. My ambition is to get a material for pockets so that I will not set my clothes on fire every time I put away a lighted hod upon the unexpected approach of a lady or the sudden appearance of the ' Big Boss. ' or in the presence of a reporter. " Just at that moment the Vice-President brought a veil, slapped his hands against his side pocket, threw a ])itcher of water on himself, and turned on the lire alarm. The reporter took advantage of the excitement to make his escape. He next went to the sanctum of Professor Mike Creese. Professor Creese motioned to the visitor to sit down, gave him a cigar, laid a box of candy by his side, and pointed to the word " candy " printed on the side of the box. The reporter thanked the Professor, came to the object of his visit at once, placed the question before the gentleman, and asked him to favor him with a reply. The Professor made no answer, but pointed to a sheet of paper, an envelope and a postage stamp, bv which the bright reporter understood that Mr. Creese would send his reply by mail. The next day the following was received : Editors of the Reveille. Gentlemen : — My ambitions are : 1. To smoke up all tlie stogies in the U. S. 2. To discover a numerical character indicating a value less than zero, for free distribution among the students of physics. 3. To beat my present record in talking. One day four years ago I spoke seven words, and it has been my greatest ambition to bring up a day ' s conversa- tion to 10 or II words. Ver}- truly, MIKE, THE SILENT. We regret that space will not allow us to print the other replies in detail. But from these three it can be seen that the members of the M. A. C. Faculty have exceedingly worthy ambitions before them. Several other of the replies received are worty of particular notice. Prof. G winner asserted that his greatest ambi- tion was to make money, solely for the pleasure of spending it. Prof. Taliaferro claimed that his pet ambition was to invent a method lor electrifying his agricultural apparatus, in order to keep inquisitive students from fingering it. Prof. Richardson said that his greatest ambition of recent years was realized when we w on the St. John ' s football game in 191 3. 193 3ln iH moriam In the year of our Lord, 1914, the Morril and New Mercer Literary Societies died at their home in the Maryland Agri- cultural College Dormitories at College Park, Md. The de- ceased have been patient sufferers for many years, but took a turn for the worse about three years ago. Among those who knew them at their best and who were at their bed side during their death illness were the members of the present Senior class. As the departed ones have been crippled for so long and have seldom appeared in society of late, they will not be missed very much, except by the immediate members of their fold, who are prostrated with grief over the sad demise of their aged beloved. The burial was private, the remains being interred into the Music Club, Fraternities and Minstrel Shows. R. T. Gray H. s. fOrd F. s. hOffecker D. L. JOHNSON W. T. fLtETCHER H. U. DEELEY J. B.

You expect your orchard to pay you $100 or more an acre each year after the trees reach bearing age. You will give this orchard the us- ual advantages of good varieties, good soil, water and air drainage. There is no reason why you should not get the fruit you expect—unless the trees fail you. What about the trees? How do you know they are true to name and will bear heavily? What if they should prove to be inferior sorts or even worthless seedlings instead of Stayman or Baldwin, or York Imperial, as you planned to have ? What if they should be apple trees that refuse to bear well no matter what attention they get? Your only protection against this source of failure is to buy trees from a nursery that has its trees RIGHT. The firm must be square enough to stand back of its trees till they bear, and big enough and worth enough finan- cially to make its guarantee as good as a well endorsed note. The way to be safe and to have a Suc- cessful Orchard is to plant Harrison trees. We make certain they are RIGHT by selling only trees we grow ourselves, by budding our trees from bearing orchards, and by employing more practical orchard men than any other firm in America. The Harrison Nurseries are the largest in the world. The Harrison trees are the best that skill and money and natural advantages can grow, and they are absolutely guaranteed. The Harrison 1914 Catalogue Tells The Rest, it shows how we grow trees, gives planting plans and directions. Really a handbook. Tells how we pre- vented having to say goodbye to a 1913 crop of peaches worth $35,000.00. Sent on request. Our fruit men will answer your questions.

Jan. 30. — Prof. B. cracked a great joke about the two men in the train, one of which thought he knew everything in the world ; and it had a real cuss word in it too. 4. 4..|..|. 4.4■4i4.4.4i4« 4.»I.4. 4. 4.4»4■ ♦4 4•• • 4• •4• 4•4•• 4 4•4 • H• • I I I I I I I ■ I I , i .|, 4- 4•• • • 4 " • • 4•4 • • 4•4• • ' ' 4-• ' • • n•• • • • ' 4 ' • • 4•• • • Wear the Newark Shoe and ' ' Save a Dollar ??

Feb. 8. — Cadet S. E. Griffin took a long walk with a frend of his to Belts- ville. On the way they met a country store open. And you should have seen the expression that came over the faces of those simple country folk when " StiiT " ordered his tenth glass of hard cider. Feb. 9. — (See January 19). In Economics this morning Truitt was sud- denly seized with heart trouble. He had every man in the class place his head on his breast to see if his (Truitt ' s) heart was beating. He thought he had a tobacco heart. Feb. 10. — Jack Chisholm found a buzzard and took it home. He fed it crackers and milk, but this dainty bird did not thrive on such coarse fare, so while Jack was away the bird flew the coop. Sad ! Feb. 11. — Another meeting of the Senior Class.
