PATTERSON President Maryland Agricultural College tnis volume of tne REVEILLE is respectfully deaicatea hy The Class of Nineteen-Fifteen DR. HARRY J. PATTERSON Dt. Ssttj J. Pii aTSDin R. HARRY J. PATTERSON was born at Yellow Springs, Penn- sylvania, December 17, 1867. His father, William Calvm Patterson, and his mother, Adaline (Mattern) Patterson, lived on their farm for three years after Harry ' s birth, at which time the father was called to the State College of Pennsylvania, and at once took up his abode there. For years he was Superintendent of Buildings and Construction, and left there a heritage of good will and devotion to duty that makes the name Patterson a favored one at that institution. The son attended the common schools of the town until, as a boy of sixteen, he entered the college. The State College Annual, " La Vie, " of 1906, in a section devoted to noted alumni, says of him : ' ' Among the earlier Alumni in what we call the more modern period of the institution, Harry J. Patterson, of the Class of 1886, is a typical representative. Of Pennsylvania birth and ancestry, he was the sort of voung man for which the college was established. He was but a boy when he came into this neighbor- hood to live, hence he entered college quite young, took the full agricultural course, and graduated before he was twenty years old. Chemistry, in its relations to agriculture appealed to him more strongly than any other line of work. In this he served his apprenticeship here ; then removed to the Maryland Experiment Station, whose chemist he was for ten years. Since that time he has been director of the Experiment Station, and has been actively interested in the development of Maryland agriculture. " The situation and varied interests of this State have made the position an important and exacting one. How ably it has been filled is well shown by the length of his occupancy and high commendation he has received from many quarters. He has taken an active interest in the farming and gardening opera- tions throughout the State, frequently apj ears at Farmers " Institutes and other gatherings and is now Master of the State Grange. " He is a member of all the leading Chemical Societies, of the Society for the Promotion of Agricultural, and Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, liesides all this he finds time to pay some attention to outside business and is a director of The First National Piank of Hyattsville, Maryland. Dr. Patterson is a frequent visitor at his Alma Mater, where his parents still reside, his father being our well-known and esteemed Superin- tendent of Grounds and Buildings. " Since 1906 his notoriety has increased and he is now a member of all lead- ing societies of the State and of some of the national and international as well. 8 He is a member of The Society of Chemical Industries of London and of the Maryland State Board of Agriculture. In December, 1913, he assumed his duties as President of the Maryland Agricultural College, which position he now holds. To his success a beautiful home life added most materially. In 1895 he married Elizabeth Hayward Hutchinson, an intellectual and vigorous woman, who has proven an excellent home builder and help-mate. They have one son and one daughter. Dr. and Mrs. Patterson take an unusually direct interest in the student life, entertaining often, and making their home a center of whole-souled merry- making. That some might not at first think it, because of his quiet manner. Dr. Patterson enjoys society hugely. But we are allowing our pen to tell of things which should be left to the character sketch below. The biography of a man should be chronicled in a dispassionate maniier. An appreciation should, however, express the prevailing o]Mnion sincerely and fully, without fear of being branded as an exaggeration. The above statement is made because the life of Dr. Harry J. Patterson is so full of personal and character element that it overshadows the mere recital of the events with which the usual short biography is concerned. Dr. Patterson is a man of broad synijiathies. He feels no class distinctions and is ambitious for the betterment of all, frowning upon everything that would tend to exploit one group for the benefit of any other. From the most noted man he meets, down to the humblest workman, he is recognized as a fellow spirit. If any barrier toward freedom of intercourse exists in the imagination of the stranger, it disappears at once under the influence of his gracious smile and simple, hearty greeting, with the result that the stranger is put at his ease and the way paved for a pleasant meeting. And whatever may be the quest of the visitor he is sure of a fair hearing. Though a man of strong convictions, Dr. Patterson is always willing to set aside his preconceived opinions and to give full consideration to the contentions of others. Narrowness and prejudice seem for- eign to him. He reserves judgment until the evidence is all in, and judges no one harshly from partial or biased report. But do not understand by this that he hesitates to take a definite stand. He is an opponent feared by those who have crossed him, for they have found behind his gracious and kindly manner, a man of determination who is willing to fight for his convictions. And absolute honesty and integrit)- are cardinal principles whose weight and worth are always on his side. But many men who are cosmopolitan in their sympathies, companionable with all whom they meet, firm in their convictions and honest in their dealings, yet lack a trait which makes our President rather an exception among ambitious men. Though full of dreams and plans, they are all for others. Unselfishness 9 KMIP Kii 3 and utter lack of egotism make him far more inclined to sacrific his personal advancement than are the common run of men. He is of the patient type who believes that merit will. be eventually recognized and who accordingly devote their time to increasing their worth allowing advancement to come of its own sweet will. Thus when called to the Presidency of the College he accepted only after being repeatedly urged to do so. His hesitancy was due to the feeling that he was not well qualified for the task. In this day and age it is a wonderful privilege to acccuse a man of undue modesty and under-appreciation of himself, yet we now have that pleasure. His constructive work already done, and still more, the steps taken toward the future development of the College, prove that he has the execu- tive ability and the vision which are needed to bring the College to the people and the people to the College. Dr. Patterson shows his religion in his daily life by following the teaching of Him in whom he declares his faith. As in other things he shows no prejudice or narrowness as concerns denominations and creeds. Reared a Methodist he really throws his influence to St. Andrew ' s Episcopal Church in College Park, and with his family, may be seen regularly at its services. He conceived and brought to fruition the first Inter-denominational Conference of Ministers ever held in Maryland and has given an impetus to everything that makes for co-operation and for the strengthening of church life. Today he stands, a man with vision, looking at the agricultural iwssibilities of the State, its undeveloped resources in soil and climate and, still more, its boys and girls who hold the future of the State in their grasp; and, further, he sees coming from every comiv unity young men and young women bent upon know- ing more about scientific agriculture and domestic science. He sees them troop- ing in a thousand strong, enthusiastic and full of hope that somewhere in the broad acres of the campus, in the new and up-to-date buildings, now growing yearly in number, in the laboratories, the library, the college activities and by the student lamp, they will learn the secrets of nature and the friendship of the fairies of the soil that will enable them not only to make two blades of grass grow where one grew before, but to make two peals of laughter ring out where one could scarce sound out before. He sees this and calls upon the State to catch the vision. He sees the College as an instrument of the State in advancing the material welfare of all by turning out graduates with imagination fired by practical ideas for betterment, men and women prepared for leadership and im- bued with the idea that " The pleasures of life come from work well done. " To this man of dreams, with his quiet cordiality, unassuming manner and whole- soled optimism, we dedicate the RkvKilli-: of 1915. May his worth be increasingly appreciated. May every Marylander feel the urge of his ideal and hel]) him con- vert his air castles into, a Gymnasium, Chemistry, Agricultural, and Dormitory Buildings, dotting our campus with hum|)s of leaven that shall work mightily for Maryland. 10 TTT llWlll|l " ll | 111 ENGINEERING BUILDING CALVtRl HALL EXECUTIVE OFFICES 3ln li mDrmm to HERSCHEL FORD Died MarcK 3rd, 1915 12 ij;:£iTi£j£iji]; iL ' ' d ' H ' ij HE past scholastic year witnessed the departure from us of one of our most trusted and valued friends. Mr. Herschel Ford, for five years Treasurer of our College, passed away on March 3rd, 1915, his death being due to heart and kidney trouble. Mr. Ford was 43 years old and a native of Fairmount, Som erset County, Maryland. After graduating from the public school of his native town, he entered Wilmington Academy at Dover, Delaware. From there he entered Dickinson College and received his degree of Doctor of Philosophy. After receiving his degree he, for a time, taught school in his native State. Later he studied law at the University of Maryland, and in due course was elected to the State Legislature from Somerset County. After serving a term in the Maryland State Legislature he was appointed as Treasurer of M. A. C. Throughout his term as Treasurer of the College, Mr. Ford has time and again proven his worth. At many critical moments in the history of our College he showed his remarkable ability to steer us clear of financial difficulties. Too much credit cannot be given him for his straightforward and upright business methods. Mr. Ford was a true hearted and a whole hearted gentleman. He always had a thought for the welfare of others. Thus he soon found a place in the hearts of the students, a place which he will still continue to occupy even though he has gone to rest. That Mr. Ford was a very religious man we all know well. When, on the bed of death, he could say, and did say, that in all his life he endeavored to do his Maker ' s will. Not once was he known to utter a word disrespectful to religion and often had he stood up in its defense. Mr. Ford had become steadfastly intrenched in the hearts of all the stu- dents of M. A. C. and it was a sad blow to see our beloved friend leave us. By his kindness and consideration for others he had become generally known as a friend to all. And although Mr. Ford had been seriously ill for weeks, and the doctors had entertained little hope for his recovery, yet the shock of his death caused many an eye to be dimmed as the body of our dear friend was carried from the chapel. He was buried at Fairmount, Somerset County, Maryland. The entire student body Ri a battalion formation escorted his remains to the station and there with bowed heads they saw their most trusted friend depart. 13 The TasijT ji li m w ]jv Prf.sidicnt Patterson. S the time for publishing the 1915 RKvKiLLr: approaches, it reminds us that another College year is about completed, and that it would be well to make a survey and inventory of the year ' s accomplishments. A very few hopes have been realized ; many ambitious and promising plans have failed so far, to either flower, or fruit, and only a limited number of the many needed changes have been accomplished. The Graduating Class of 1915 and the total enrollment for the year, is the largest in the history of the M. A. C. Unfortunately larger numbers bring a demand for enlarged accommodations, and additional equipment. The funds to supply these have not been available ; consequently, many departments are much crowded. The com])letion of " Calvert Hall " has in i)art, overcome one of the disasters of the fire. of 1912, and provides a first class dormitory for the accoirmodation of a portion of the students. The new range of ten green houses with laboratories attached has provided for the expansion of the horticultural work, and, at the same time, has relieved the crowded condition of Morrill Science Hall. The work of the College has been organized into five separate divisions, namely: 1, Division of Agronomy and Aniiral Husbandry; 2, Division of Horti- culture; 3, Division of A])i)lied Sciences; 4. Division of Rural Economics and Sociology, and 5, Division of Engineering. While some of these divisions are small, yet they should ultimately bring a development that would raise them to the dignity of schools. This step should also set clearly before the public the scope of the work of M. A. C, and .show that this institution stands for a type of education not given at any other institution in Maryland. Two new four-year courses have been added ; namely, the course in Agricul- tural Education for training agricultural teachers, and a course in Canning, for the purpose of training m.en as experts in the sciences as they apply to that important industry. A short, or one week ' s course in Road Making has been inaugurated by tlie Engineering Division. A summer school for teachers of rural schools was begun this year; it was attended by forty-three students representing sixteen counties in Maryland, and the District of Columbia. In the summier school work, particularly emjihasis was given to the correlation of agriculture, domestic science and ' nature study, 14 witli the subjects usually taught in the rural schools. The 1915 summer school will offer three grades of work, viz.. Elementary, Vocational and College Credit courses. The Department of Agricultural Education, in co-operation with the State Board of Education, and the U. S. Department of Agriculture, has in prepara- tion a series of personal lessons in agriculture, to be issued in nine parts, corre- sponding to the nine months of school. The lessons show how agriculture can be correlated with the teaching of composition, history, physical geography and arithmetic. Our professor of Agricultural Education has been appointed by the State Board of Education, Supervisor of Agricultural Instruction in the high schools of the State. This will co-ordinate the work of the high schools with the work at this institution. The year has been marked by the organization of a College and Exi)eriment Station Extension Service, whose duty will be to take the work of these institu- tions out, and deironstrate them to the i)eople of the State. The activities of the Athletic Dei)artment have been crowned with signal success. This department stands in great need of a building for its full develop- ment, and to enable it to give the i)hysical training that will insure a strong body for the trained mind. The religious life of the College during the twelve months has shown a marked activity. The triumphant canvass of the Y. M. C. A. for membership, which placed this institution at the head of the list in Maryland, should be counted of no less importance than the victories on the Athletic field. This association should be encouraged, and given every opportunity to keep pace with the growth of the College in the future, and thus be made the factor for carrying out the desire of the College as set forth in that part of the preamble of the original charter which states : " That in addition to the usual courses of scholastic training, particularly indoctrinate, the youth of Maryland, theoreti cally, and practically, in those arts and sciences which, with good manners and morals, shall enable them to subdue the earth, and elevate their State to the lofty position its advantages of soil, cliniate. etc., and the moral and mental capacities of its citizens entitles it to attain. " In August there was held under the auspices of the Y. M. C. A. a Country Life Conference for rural ministers. This was attended by 140 ministers, and 50 or 60 laymen. The ministers were the guests of the College for three days. They roomed in the dormitory and ate in the mess hall, which enabled them tn renew the spirit of their college days. Those in attendance manifested much interest and enthusiasm in the conference, and they carried away with them not only the visit of a broader field of work for the rural church, but also a better knowledge of the acti vities of the V. M. C. A., which should be mutually hel])ful for vears to come. 15 ' f l ' ru. ■■■■■I m During this college year the ownership of the college property passed wholly into the hands of the State. This makes the Maryland Agricultural College the only College in Maryland owned by the State, and should make the people of the State feel a particular pride and obligation to see it placed in the front rank of its class. Though the ownership has changed, may those charged with the manage- ment of the institution never forget the scope of the work and ideals outlined by its founders. May the Maryland Agricultural College ever ha ve for its purpose the training of men to live in Maryland a life of usefulness and power, to gain here a liveli- hood sufficient for comifortable and generous living; men with power and grace to add to community life, those elements of intelligence and virtue which give a State stability and worth ; men of large obligations to the world ; men who will assume large duties and carry them to successful conclusion. This means that there must be an M. A. C. stamp as unmistakable as the inscription on the coinage of the Nation. This institution may not equal others in the number of students, or in the value of its equipment, but it need stand second to none in the earnestness, devo- tion, spirit and courage which put into the college work, and into life ' s work after leaving college. Greatness must not be confused with size, or worth with show. The future is in the hands of time ; but that this College may continue to grow and that these ideals may be realized through the development of the present good feeling and spirit of the student body must be the wish of every friend of M. A. C. SUMMARY FOR 1914-1915. STUDENT BODY.

A. C, we have witnessed a continued rapid expansion in its functions as a State-wide influence. Neither has its Alumni Association been backward in recognizing the opportunities that lie before it as an Institution of service to the people of the State. As it grows in power and prestige, every Alumnus is coming to realize that, although years may have passed since his graduation days, he is still an integral part of the College and its influence. He is no longer an isolated man sent out from his Alma Mater to fight his way singly in making his individual success and in paying his debt to the community. No matter what calling he may have taken up, so long as he remains within the State, he is bound to feel that into whatever community he may go, the old College on the Hill is reaching out into its life, giving it new insi)irations and strengthening him in his efforts to make it a community more worth while. The Alumnus of today realizes that whether he is going to be an engineer, a farmer, a teacher, an investigator or pursue his scholastic studies further, he goes out with an obligation upon him to extend the usefulness of the Institu- tion as a community influence and by remaining in close touch with its faculty and field workers, maintain a connecting link that will back his own activities and strengthen his hands in what he has to do. He recognizes that his Alma Mater no longer confines its interests to the teaching of the comparatively few individuals who are fortunate enough to be enrolled as students. He realizes that it is touching from day to day an increasingly larger number of individuals. He sees it reaching the farmer, by bringing to him scientific agri- cultural teaching in the form of neighborhood short courses and farmers institutes, and by demonstrating in his own community and on his own farm better methods of production on a practical scale. He sees this influence about to reach the women of the State through the activities of a system of house- hold teaching much the same in character as that supplied the farmer. He sees it reaching the young people of the country and city through the training of its students for industrial teaching in special courses planned to serve this end. He sees it co-operating with the State Board of Education in giving a country life trend to our instructors in the rural schools of the State. He sees it touch in one way or another every class in the community. The rural ministers and the ministers from the city alike are more vital and effective from con- tact with the influence of the Agricultural College. Every man and woman is the stronger for its help and influence — the men and women who build our roads, who do our banking, who till our farms, who keep our households, who train our children, who make our laws, who minister to our spiritual and physical needs — every one, indeed, who is concerned with the community 27 life of Maryland. It is this realization that the graduate of today and the alumnus of tomorrow must bear in mind. It is the realization as well to which those who are already members of the Alumni Association have fully awakened — that and the further realization that they are the centers through which this influence must largely spread, through which an understanding of the needs and purposes of the Greater I. A. C. must come. It is up to them to carry into effect the purposes of the founders of the Land Grant College — to give to the people of the State with whom they come in contact, an understanding that the Maryland Agriculural College is an institution that offers a broad training for citizenship in every industrial pro- fession open to young men in this State — that it was instituted to fill a definite and universal need of our people. In the words of Justin Morrill, " The son of a farmer or of a mechanic who desires a liberal education preparatory to a similar vocation or to some different one from that of his father should be able to find it in the Land Grant College of his State, and should not be subjected to the inconvenience and e.xpense of seeking for it in a distant State. The sons of the State, for which they have an ineradicable l irth-right affec- tion, have some right to receive, some duty to accept, within its home borders that instruction which will be of the hig-hest utiliy. " Furthermore, now that it has become entirely State property, by virtue of the foreclosure sale of the private stockholders ' undivided half interest, September 23, 1914, the Maryland Agricultural College 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 an epoch-making period in its history and in the development of the industrial life of the State — a period when the organization of its Alumni into live and influential associations seems both logical and imperative in their own interests as well as that of the Institution. To this end, we should respond whole heartedly and as a unit to the ap- peal of the President of our Alumni Association, R. M. Pindell, " Love and gratitude, without an accompanying sense of duty, are impossible, and the duty of the Alumnus to his .Alma Mater is strong and binding in proportion to his possession of those finer characteristics that we find in the man wt)rth while. " If we recognize and fulfill that duty, the College will grow and prosper; if we forget the debt we owe, it loses in dignity, in imi3ortance and in usefulness. Let us take pride in the api)reciation that ours is the leading part in the building of a monument to ourselves and to the State. Let us assume the responsibility for the future M. A. C, and in assuming that responsibility, at this time, when she is suing for that support which must be forthcoming, that she may take her proper place among the educational institutions of the land, let each man answer " HERE " to the roll-call of duty. 28 £i bi HORTICULTURAL BUILDING MARYLAND EXPERIMENT STATION EXPERIMENT STATION BARN JU.- 1 !• ' • ' •■ mm , .. . . i r,: - »w ; (n;--. juihT ..

At times it is advisable for the student body to analyze its environment and itself in order to secure a firmer foundation upon which to build " M. A. C. spirit. " Let us first consider those to whom we are responsible — the Faculty. As a whole, we believe our instructors are doing the best they can, considering the amount of work they have to do. However, what is most needed in the class room is not merely instructors who hear recitations or discuss unim- portant topics, but men who are suggestive teachers. We are aware of the mani- fold duties our instructors have to perform, but, yet, we believe they are unduly absent from classes at times. We further believe that there is an unnecessary duplication of work which could be easily avoided if the courses were systemat- ized. We would suggest that the deans require a more definite outline of the courses of study as given by their assistants. Then, too, it seems as if our courses of study are not as well organized as they should be; that they do not show a fitting psychological sequence; that they do not allow enough of electives ; and that they aim to cover too much ground in a limited time. As we go out from our Alma Mater as citizens of this and other States, heavy demands are being made upon us, and in return, it seems but right that we should expect more from ' those who make them. In connection with our college work, we believe that the passing grade should be raised several points higher; that the faculty should be more strict in the en- forcement of its rules and regulations ; that when a student fails to pass any final examination, due to his own shortcomings, that he be required to repeat the course. Finally, our college course is a business proposition and we would suggest that the present method of removing conditions be abolished, as an incen- tive for better work. Regarding our college life, we urge that more sanitary conditions be main- tained with reference to the water supply ; that proper lights be provided in class rooms and on the campus; in a word, that the same interest be manifested in our 30 physical well-being as is taken in our spiritual welfare. We realize that the college has limited means of support, but we feel that money will be well invested when used in improving the walks, removing the ruins of the old buildings, and in improving the campus in general. In reference to our moral atmosphere, we believe that M. A. C. should be made a co-educational institution. We believe that the very presence of ladies in our classes would raise our standards of morality and in the end help us to live a cleaner social life. Furthermore, we are aware of our own faults. Under the present system of holding examinations, cribbing is popular and is at a maximum. We do not believe that cheating can be prevented. We do believe, however, that if we were put absolutely on our personal responsibility in all our work, the plane of student honor would be materially raised. Whatever we seem to be, our purpose is to develop the best that is in us. M. A. C. is a different kind of college. To the open country and to Nature does she owe much, but to the demiocratic spirit of her sons, to their desire to be of service, and to their ability to do things, does she owe more. Where others are prepared to lead, M. A. C. is pt-epared to follow. Considering her environ- ment and influence, we believe that in the next decade she will be the leading State college of the South. 31 r:- TK T:T« K K - ♦ ♦ :4 !fe; ♦« » f f» f « » f»afH« i i ii ' ¥l i¥ ii 7iT . i - it Tif ♦ Wfit dih st Top row ; Massey, Harrison, Gra Bottom row : RoKn, Knode, Peter, Cocke ? l3Bii3.t)T Class ' D22i£BTS Philip N.

In September, 1911, about fifty " ambitious " ? " intelligent " ? and " determined " ? fellows asseirbled in the old halls and were finally organized into the Class of ' 15, being escorted by numbers of paddles, bayonets, etc. All of this noble fifty were " old boys, " having served their apprenticeship as " rats " the year before. Everything went well and cjuiet with our noble half-hundred, owing largely to the fact that our number greatly exceeded that of the ever watchful " Sophs. " We called a class meeting, elected our class officers toward the latter part of the year, and after various ingenious arguments elected A. W. Meyers, President; F. J. McKenna, ' ice-President ; C. E. Robinson, Secretary-Treasurer; A. W. Meyers, Historian. Then, too, we had manifested much interest in athletics and had done much to make every branch of M. A. C. ' s athletics a success. This was all very pleasing but we anxiously and impatiently looked forward to the time when our long anticipated hopes would be realized and we would be able to call ourselves " Sophs. " W lien the class assembled for its first meeting as Sophomores the roll call Ehowed tha t two of our members had dropped out. The first business transacted was to organize a rece])tion committee whose purpose was to make the " rats " feel at home (?). These committees were very successful in their efforts. (The writer knows because he was a Soi)homore " rat " at that time). Most of our social affairs during the year were in the nature of " rat-meetings " and " broom - fights, " all for the entertainment of the homesick " rat. " It was during November of this year that the dormitory buildings were destroyed by fire. Several members of our class were at the dormitory at the time of the fire and rendered most valuable assistance in fighting the fire, delaying it long enough for other college nates to save much valuable property. fm jfm III mill The inanner in which our class held together after this lamentable catastrophe I ' ointed to a successful organization in our remaining two years. The class was guided by the following officers during this year : A. H . M ASSK V President J. E. l)()Wi.AND Vice-President F. J. McKknna Secretary C. E. RoRiNSON Treasurer R. P. Wr; ST Historian September 16th was not long in coming, and after being assigned to our various boarding houses, we retired until the morrow. The next day was a day of hanl-shaking and merry-making for all concerned. Everyone had wonderful stories to relate about broken hearts and thrilling episodes and several even said that they had toiled: during the summer, ' i ' hose fabricators were c[uickly tilted with a 1-2-.1. We were no longer Sophs, so it was up to us to fill that happy medium between the care-free and frivolous Sophomore, and the studious, dignified Senior. Our noble President joined us later in the year and he al. ' o had wonderful tales to relate about the wild and woolly West. Of course when ' " Pete " arrived ciass meetings had to be held and we then started to arrange for the junior Prom. This was to be a great event, and also to outrival anv Prom, that had ever been held at M. A. C. After watchful waiting and many restless nights, the 20th of February rolled around, and it was " some " dance. It was a beautiful night and the moon shone on a shroud of snow that covered mother earth, thus adding beauty on the outside to correspond to the beauty inside. Then the aftermath. So:r.e one removed trees to decorate the auditorium, and some one received a bill. Ten dollars for some measly trees — not us! Rut we finally decided that we were to blame, so our honorable Treasurer wrote out a check and the trees, by change of title " a la Rommy, " ' belonged to us. Of course the trees could not be used by us, so they were finally distributed among the poor of Washington for firewood. From February to April was a dull and quiet term on account of Lent. No dances to go to, and of course we wcnldn ' t go to shows or movies during the Lenten season. 37 y Bfc Aj Ujjlj i» 1 1 III llljlliniiil " ' ' ' ! ' " ' ■ wM Spring soon rolled around, and between baseball, track and lacrosse, we had something to pass the time away. Then came the month of June, that warm, fair and beautiful creature, and after exams, the Faculty treated us to a dance, the Junior and Senior German. Another of our fond hopes realized, and still another not far away. Several n.ore class meetings, and on class night, the night upon which we took our obligations and responsibilities as Seniors, the following officers announced for the term of 1914- ' 15, to replace the retiring officers, who were: P. N. Peter President A. H. MassEy Vice-President F. J. McKenna Secretary C. E. Robinson Treasurer W. E. Harrison Historian J. H. Knode Sergeant-at-Arms We smoked the pipe of peace and then after the commencement exercises and exhibition drill, we bade farewell to M. A. C. until the following September. Our individual trials and triumphs have been related in our biographies and the general happenings have been but minor ones compared with that great, huge event, now looming before us, which is — graduation. The new barracks having been completed, we were again blessed with dor- mitory life, and this has been an unspeakable pleasure. There were no unusual events and the year was mingled with studies and pleasures. The Class of 1913 will not be remembered because it did any great or radical thing, but because it pursued a dignified course throughout its four years, giving its aid and support to every undertaking that came up. The debt that the class owes to the college can never be entirely repaid, but we have endeavored during the four years that we have been here to. do something for our college in return for what it has done for us. We hope that when we get out we will be able to do much more for our Alma Mater. All too soon the end of our college course is coming, and we will have to take up our separate ways of life. The principles we have learned here will be a])plied on a larger sjjhere and the world ought to be a little better oflf because the Class of 1915 has passed through M. A. C. and has come out to do its share in the advancement of the civilization of the world. 38 ip ' in i % 11 Having thus set forth our history and purpose, it seems but fitting that we should set forth sotue definite creed of our convictions and behefs. Hence the Class of 1915 sets forth as a result of a college course at M. A. C, with its con- sequent class evolution from Freshmen to Senior, the following: We believe in everything at M. A. C. which is beautiful, manly and honorable. ' e believe in our campus which is full of the glory of the universe, its trees, shrubs, flowers and walks. ; A ' e believe in athletics because it lifts us into more robust manhood and fits us for a more stalwart life. ' ■■ We believe in class rivalry, for it adds spice and helps create college atmos- phere. It develops class muscle and class spirit. It planes off our sharp edges and polishes up our rough surfaces. We believe that every one should maintain an honorable interest in all college organizations. W ' e believe that every one should maintain an honorable interest in his Alma Mater. We believe in fellowship and regard it as the greatest godsend in a college community. We believe in the Stars and Stripes because they wave as a emblem of freedom. We believe in 1915 as the greatest class. Every beauty, every honorable tradition, every scene of college days we sha ' l preserve, honor arid cherish. 39 (KlOfl- -0«C= 0 7 2 Miss Virginia Wilson Kensington, Ma.

Since entering into social life, Paul has met " The Girl " and on every ' ' ednes- day and Sunday he may be seen running for the S.IO car. It is rumored that his destination is Riverdale. " Bommy " also appears to have a monopoly on the telephone, and if he talks for less than two hours his friends suspect that something is wrong. (It is under- stood, however, that the ceremony will not take place until June). " Bommy, " in his official duties as bugler, seems to have made quite a friend of " Commy. " In fact " der Kaiser " takes such interest in Paul that he frequently calls up " Robby " to find out if his protege has walked his several guard tours. Taking everything into consideration, we know " Bommy " to be a dandy fel- low and we all wish him health, happiness and prosperity. 42 JAY EDWIN BOWLAND, K. A., Kingston, Md. " HJP.

" He is zcise from his liead up. " N September 15, 1911, there appeared upon the campus, a veritable giant, who was later dubbed " Hip, " due to the strictest resemblance to that well-known quadruped, a hippopotamus. The ' " Sophs " took one good look at him and decided that there was safety in numbers, thus proving the statement that " Hip " was only troubled at general meetings. As a society man, " Hip " is sure there, imitating the example of Sir Galahad, of wearing his heart upon his sleeve. Just how many hearts he has smashed, we cannot say, but it has been mathematically proved to be more than one. " Hip " ' is one of " Doc Tolly ' s ' ' pets, andi is pushing " Bommy " close for the warm spots in " Doc ' s " heart. You may often see him from 1.13 P. M. to 4.15 P. M. trying to show " Doc " how to square a circle and adjust the telescope so that he can see around a corner, being too lazy to move the instrument. We expect to hear of some wonderful feat from this young prodigy of our Alma Mater. Since his sojourn at M. A. C. " Hip " has made a most enviable record for himseif in football. For the past four years he has been one of the mainstays of the line, holding down a tackle position, and we feel sure that if ' alter Camp, the great exponent of football, could see " Hip " in action he surely would give him a birth on the ali-American eleven. 43 RUDOLPH STOCKSDALE BROWN, K.

' core or more of years ago. this blue-eyed German youth set out to make a record for liimself. His chief charac- teristic was to go from one term to the next with just as many condi- tions as the Faculty would allow and sometinies more. However, we all sym])athize with the ' " Dutchman, " for judging from the size of his feet, one would think that what should be in his head is in his feet. He is not exactly a ladies " man, but he had ' a good start towards being one. We are told that she ( ?) went away to college, and since that time he has not been able to find a nother so fair. No doubt he would have developed into a great musician some day. but unfortunately he and " Dutch " Elbcl could not agree as to the time ( ?) of the music. In the beginning of his career he played (blew) the cymbals and ended by playing the snare drum. It was not until the latter part of his Junior year that his classmates awoke to the fact that he stood head and shoulders above the rest of them as a business man. Immediately they decided to entrust the business management of the RitvF.iLLE to him. Just what " Dutch " or " Buck " intends to do after he graduates (if he ever does) we do not know, but we do kfiow that he will make a success of whatever he undertakes, and to him we all extend our best wishes for success. 45 OSCAR GEORGE CARPENTER, Plumbpoint, Md.

Judging from the vociferous cries resounding from " Plum ' s " home we may be sure that every inhabitant of Calvert county well knew that some belated youngster had just been born. And so it happened that this noisy youth ap])lied for admission to M. A. C. in the fall of 1911. It is understood that " Itoohoo " first comprehended his wants, thinking that the applicant was a young rustic applying for work. To tell the truth, gentlemen, if you had never seen a real " hayseed " the sight of " Plum " sure would have been some treat. " PIuht " decided to take a course in Bovine Engineering for, he acknowledged with pride, that even at that youthful age he could easily distinguish the difference between a cow and a billy-goat.

His friends in Annapolis after laboring for years to correct him gave it up and sent him to M. A. C. Imme- diately upon his arrival Reg. Truitt took it entirely upon himself to show " Nick " the error of his way, hut in vain. The whole Sophomore Class then took a hand but their efforts had an entirely opposite eiifect. However, education has a strong tendency to broaden the mind, so he has imjiroved wonderfully. Up to the last part of his Sophomore year Roland led his class in all depart- ments, in fact it was a rare occasion when this bright young man didn ' t register over ninety in his exams, but the distraction of society ( ?) has worked a change over this gentleman. He now has become slightly indififerent to those high marks and is devoting much of his time to securing a " drag " with the fair sex (a unit).

Although he was raised in New York in a s])ot which might rival the (iarden of Eden, according to his accovmts, yet Medley has a warm spot in his lieart for old M. A.

Hedley ' s idea of strategy in the management of the bugle corps varied widely from the opinion of " der Kaiser. " Consequently he was violently disranked, al- most to the point of complete dismissal. Although he has never taken a very active part in social functions at the college, yet when it comes to private parties and masquerades this young man is right out of the barrel. Hedley ' s first attempt at love-making was a rank failure. He wanted to talk to a pretty girl who had handed him the glad eye, but didn ' t know how to start.

" HARLES T. COCKEY, of Pikesville fame, breezed into this institution of learning in the fall of I ' Jll and entered our Freshman Class. During his " rat " year Charlie took a very inconspicuous part in social activities due to his inability to erase from his memory the luring countenance of some fair maid in his native " Burg. " At the end of his Freshman year Charles was presented with a corporalcy. It was then that he sallied forth with his stripes and brass buttons to conquer the perfumed realm of the elusive feminine. Napoleon ' s conquest of Europe was but a mediocre event as conipared with " C. T. ' s " ' subjugation of Cupidom. For his proficient service as a corporal " Commy " saw fit to bestow upon this young soldier a commencement present in the form of a pair of First Sergeant ' s chevrons. However, Charlie now thinks that he will not follow a military career, having declared a promotion to the rank of Senior Captain and accepting in its stead the more lucrative position of Chief Proctor. " Commy ' s " heart was almost broken by having his proffered commission so flatly refused. It might be said that during the present year " Charlie " is filling the important position of a corporal in the Signal Corps. Nothing like having a drag with " der Kaiser.

We have observed that all great scientists and great men wear long hair, and if such is the case we have good reason to believe that in the near future Gibson will become one of the world ' s greatest scientists.

He was indeed more fortunate than about 99 per cent, of us in being able to understand " Mikes " way of explaining the wonderful sub- ject of ])sysics and consequently immediately attracted attention by being per- mitted to sit in the back row amongst the celebrities. Having attained such a great degree of proficiency in his academic work, some of his classmates proceeded to introduce him into the Park Society. But, gentle reader, this was his downfall. For after making his debut at the home of a certain young lady in College Park and winning a beautiful pennant at the card ])arty he could be seen paying frequent calls at the home of the fair one thus causing serious neglect of his studies. During his Senior year an attempt was made to introduce " Eugie " intc Washington society, but again it was a sad failure. To anyone who knows the inside facts these failures can easily be explained. " Eugie " already has a fair one back home and it would not be surprising to discover that he will be the first one of the Class of ' 15 to undergo the nuptial ceremony. 64 ■l vVS ' " ' mi ' " " ' !|): r|::i;i,i|iyj r.-- WILLIAM EMMITT HARRISON, I.

As there has always been one or more pairs of " glorious eyes " mixed up in the case since then, he has been forced to work tremendously hard to ofifset their effect, and hence has gained the reputation of being a good student.

" Pink " is always busy, in fact he is a hustler, but he is ever ready to drop hi? duties and take charge of " Metz ' s " classes. He is neither a " society bug " nor a frequenter at the show, only a steady hard worker, but it is said by one who knows that he is fond of a certain blue-eyed damsel living somewhere in the beautiful green hills of Western Maryland. Laying all levity aside we are glad to say that his work at college has been characterized by a strict attention to duty throughout the course ; the only worldly diversion in which he seems to have taken a real interest being that of music and the editorship of this book (?) Pinckney has successfully completed the course in Agricultural Education and is contemjjlating the teaching side of life.

" I ' m proud of the Irish Mood that ' s in me, and d ' lv ' il a bit man can say agin me. " N the fall of 1911 there appeared .strolling aimlessly up College Avenue a robust-looking specimen of lost Ireland. After his debut into college society, several nicknames, among which we find " Irish, " ' " Jew, " etc., were applied to the aforesaid portl gentleman. It was " nary " long before " Irish " made known to all of his fellow-students in an impressive voice the whereabouts of his home town (Baltimore). To this day Rous boasts of his little home village and seems to take a special delight in arguing with some W ' ashingtonian over the respective merits of their places of residence. " Irish " made liis " de-but " into society during the summer of 1912. It was during this season that Cupid pierced " Jew ' s " heart and to this day, judging from those far off looks in his eyes, we somehow feel sure that the wound is still there. However, judging from rumor, it miglit be said that a healing lotion is being applied to his battered heart in the form of a young Riverdale maiden. However, laying all jokes aside, Kelly is a good fellow, a hard student, and one liked bv all of his classmates.

" " Max " claims to be of foreign birth, to which, we all agree. Horn in London, England, November 5, 1889, Kisliuk soon found the island too small for his wonderful mental growth. He accordingly succeeded in ])ersuading his parents to emigrate to America where he could have ample room to explore the realm of nature. After landing in Philadelphia he was not altogether satisfied and set out to be a second Robinson Crusoe. He, like all other men of his type, finally gave uj) the idea of discovering the island of luxuries and decided to settle down in one place. He, accordingly selected a city which is said to be noted for its beautiful dames so as not to be lonesome, for " Max " is some (?) ladies ' man. (jraduating from Atlantic City High School in 1911, he decided to pursue further his educational i)ursuits, and matriculated at Rutgers College. Here again he showed his wonderful mental superiority and decided in his own mind that he knew as much as the " Profs. " and accordingly withdrew, so we arc told. Realizing his extraordinary psychological development he entertained thoughts of becoming l resident of the United States and as a result, ])ersuaded his jiarents to come tf) Washington, D. C. in the sum- mer of 1912. ISeing somewhat disappointed in the returns of the election, he cast about for a college education, and ref orted for duty at M. A. C. in the fall of 1912, and was warmly (? rat) received into the So])homore class. 58 I ' fM ' iWiii " ' J. HARRY KNODE, Hagerstown, Md. ' V " HARRV or " NODIE.

Consequently this little one- horse town in Western Maryland has as its representative here, one J. Harry Knode. Since J. Harry ' s arri al, his good nature and readiness to help another have made for him a host of friends in the class and among the student body. It is said that Harry first met HEF in the fall of 1912, and to say that he lost his heart would indeed be putting it mildly, for at any and all times he may be heard wildly raving about his fair one. And if you wish to make a friend for life, you will only have to agree with Harry in regard to her charms. His pet trick is to take a whole pack of smokes away from anyone who may chance to visit him. (However, sometimes he may leave you the coupon.) " Nodie " made his debut into the social world of M. A. C. at the 1914 Junior Prom. As a dancer he was a great success with the exception of one little mistake which he invariably made. His feet not only had a tendency to travel in opposite directions, but they also seemed to have a mutual attraction for one another, which resulted in loss of ecfuilibrium, E9 MICHAEL LEVIN, Baltimore, Md.

He soon won fame for his ability as a lawyer and as a detective and if his accomplishment along the line of detecting eats were known outside the walls of M. A. C, Sherlock Holmes would surely lose his job. As a militarv man " Mein Lieber Augustine " has had an enviable career. He began his military life as Commy ' s chauff ' eur and ended as a high private of the rear rank. Massey tells us that all his recent visits to a town were on account of eye trouble, hut as he also insists on telling us about a beautiful little nurse with blue eyes and brown hair, and since we have never heard of an eye speciaist working on Sunday night, we are inclined to believe that the trouble is with his l:eart and not his eyes. As an athlete he has won fame in both track and lacrosse, for he has been a main-stay on the attack in lacrosse and won the first quarter of the mi ' e in the George Washington track meet this year. If Herman is as apt in solving the problems of life, as he has been in winning the affections of divers maidens in the vicinity of ' ashington we feel that his success is assured.

This young man, no doubt, felt the call of Mother Uarth, even in his city clime, and consequently decided to learn the art of how to grow cider apples, square peas and pine rooters. Fniding the two-}ear course inadaquate for his expandmg brain, he rightfully and logically turned to the four-year course and entered our midst in January, 1913. " Monny " is a decendant of Nap-o-leon P.ony-Parte, as you will readily perceive upon your first glance. Like Napoleon, he is a military aspirant, and while we doubt that he will have his Wellington we do suspect that he will meet his Waterloo in the fair sex. Eh! Carter? " Monny " wears his heart upon his sleeve, and like a chip upon a pugnacious boys shoulder, it has been ])icked at, grabbed at, and finally ruthlessly torn away — whether he will ever get it back, we have our doubts.

" Pete " has the honor of being president of our illustrious Class and he makes a good one, his specialty being parliamentary law. He shines in chem- istry, although Prof. Broughton was hot on his trail for not returning when school convened. His e.xcuse was that water boys were so hard to secure in far off Colorado, that he had to stay on the job. " Pete ' s " greatest failing is his love for the fair sex, which we are very sorry to say is not reciprocated. When he arrived at M. A.

Although we may assume that " Commy " ' has no great liking for the counte- nance above, yet we may be assured that with " Doc Tolly " c]uite the reverse is true. In fact, " Doc " thinks that some day Everett will earn a reputation that will make that of Col. Goethals fade into insignificance and our Class is sure that when this young engineer brings forth all of his ingenuity and ability in designing and constructing the great bridge over Paint ISranch that an exposition far superior to the present one in California will be held in College Park.

We wish him the best of success in life and feel sure that our wishes will not ' be in vain. 70 MARTIN EMMANUEL ROHN, Baltimore, Md. " MARTIN. " ARTIST 1915 REVEILLE.

" Help! I ' m falling in love. " ENTLEMEN, this is Martin Rohn, the world-famous chemist. Although Martin has analyzed many substances since his advent here yet he seems to have special skill and ability in the analysis of a select few, i. e., beer, cider and wine. When it comes to testing the palatability of beer Martin is certainly in Class " A. " In fact, he is not the only member of the Senior chemical section who seemed to have a special liking for the analysis of fermented liquors- for out of twenty-four bottles of beer purchased for that purpose only twelve were ever used. The other dozen must surely have been stolen, although " Reds " Dennis swore that he smelled beer on the breath of several Senior chemists. Martin has a most enviable reputation in the military dei)artment. After two months ' service, as a Senior private, during which period he attended drill three times, he along with the other Seniors whose sleeves were devoid of any insignia of military efficiency, were requested to call upon " der Kaiser. " After being closeted with " His Majesty " ' for about an hour Martin came forth with a glittering weapon in his hand. During that same drill period an order issued bv " His Highness " (acting directly for the Secretary of War) announced Martin ' s promotion to the rank of Second Lieutenant. The effect was wonderful. He now attends drill regularly, keeps his shoes shined and even shaves once a week. 71 i li M F ' ■ " ' ■ ' ' ' ■■»- iSSU illlll! Illlll Wll ll ' PII ' ROBERT NAIRNE TODD, I. S., Salisbury, Md.

Take a glimpse at this creature, fair reader, and form your opinion of the taste of the W ash- ington Maids. When this intelligent-looking, country lad entered the Freshman Class he was at once pounced upon by " Mike " Creese for in Naime " Mike " thought he saw the making of a secondi Edison. Sad to relate " Mike ' s " expectations have not been realized. " Toddy " has made a record foi- himself during the last two years, for he has brought more dififerent girls to the various college functions than any other man here. He says that variety is the spice of life. We all wonder if he or she expressed the idea first. We could not call " Toddy " a military man for only last fall " Sonny " emphat- ically told " der Kaiser " that he deserved much more pleasure and benefit from shooting i)ool than from attending military formations, and it was with great regret that " Napoleon " gave him his unconditional release from the military department. " Toddy ' s " future plans are somewhat unsettled as he has not yet decided whether it would be advisable for him to accept the presidency of the Squabash Electric Company or to continue his old practice of summering in Atlantic City. Well, " Sonny, " old man, the best of luck to you — the Class of 1915. 72 JOHN JAMES TULL, Crisfield, Md. ••MADAM. " Hl.MOROIS EDITOR 1»15 RKVEII.I E New Mfrcer; Y. M. ( ' .

" Conceit may puff a man, but it xvill nex ' er prop him up! " ALPH PHELPS WEST, alias " Skeeter " or R. P., one of old ' irginia ' .s choicest specimens, according to a certain member of the fair sex, first put in his appeaiance at M. A. C. in the fall of 1909. Throughout his Freshman year " Skeeter " fought shy of the limelight due, no doubt, to his retiring disi)osition. Howe er, in the spring he donned a baseball suit and showed up well. (In the team picture.) Ralph returned in the fall of 1910, but after remaining at college for a few days he decided that a year ' s -vacation would be of great benefit. So he accord- ingly retired to the Virginia farm and devoted Iiis entire time toward perfecting a |)lan whereby he could reap revenge on " His Highness. " Ui)on returning in the following fall " Skeeter " tested his scheme, but after walking countless guard tours he gave it uj) as a bad job. Ralph is not openly a society man and he would have us believe that the fair sex hold no charms for him, but it has rccentlv been learned that his trip to Washington are not always on business. Furthermore, it is rumored that while in the hospital he became infatuated with a certain nurse. i such be the case he will be assured of the best wishes and congratulations of the Class of 1915. 74 rmMim III mill FREDERICK WILLIAM WRIGHT, K.

" T was in the fall of 1912 that, while welcoming the returns of our class- mates, we noticed off to the right a fellow who was possessed of a lean and hungry look. Ui)on incjuiring as to the name of this Cassius we learned that his cognomen was William Frederick Wright; address, Forest den. near Monkey Hollow, Maryland. It was indeed fortunate for us that " Freddy " entered the portals of dear old M. A. C. at this time, for numerous members of our Class were experiencing great dilihculties with the language usually known as " Dutch, " but which when spoken of by a number of us is often characterized by more ex]ilosi e adjectives. In fact, as a German shark " Freddy " is Wright there. Like the rest of the vSeniors " Freddy " is a ladies " man and when he gets all dolled up on a Friday afternoon and takes his little suit case along we may be sure that his trip is not to be entirely of a business nature. Petworth, Linden, Forest Glen and New York are also dear to his heart as may be seen by the tinted enveloi-es that he finds d.iily in his mail box. How- he can remain so popular and still keeji them all guessing is a riddle which no one can solve, but we certainly hope that some day one of these fair ones will catch William Frederick and i)ut the shackles on him for good and for all. After graduation " Freddy " intends to take a post-graduate course at Cornel! so tliat all that we can say is, " Go to it, old boy, and luck be with vou.

" Tis sad to know that these care- free days are so nearly spent and that " twill be only a few more hours when our drooping eyelids shall close to slumber in vacation ' s peaceful rest from whence we shall awake to find our shoulders strapped about with the heavy burden of a Senior ' s life. Hut this sketch is to be historical, not prophetic ; so let us run back and take a glimpse or two at the individuals who have just passed through this happy dream known as Junior life. We shall find some who are athletes of marked ability, some who are prize-winners in scholastic work, some who are " lady killers ' " of renown, and some, like Eddy, upon whom the god " s have bestowed all three of these heavenly gifts. Aitcheson is the first name upon our roster, and " Itchy " ' takes great pride in explaining to all newcomers that he is not only first in alphalbetical order, but that he leads in all else — arguments, fist-fights, and cotillion alike. Bains is next on the list and, to be frank, the less truth is told about this gentleman the higher the standard of perfection he will attain in the eyes of the readers of his biog- raphy. Then comes one who, the fairer sex have declared, portrays a striking likeness to Apollo, and whom they have christened " Les, " ' but who is known to us as Bopst. The two seats beyond are occupied by Johnny Bowling and |immy Bradley, representing, respectively, Southern Maryland and Lonaconing, and those intel- lectual abilities are as widely contrasted as their names are alike. " Bill " ' Brockwell, of liladensburg road, ne.xt looms up before us and swears that Colonel Stephen Decatur and Captain I ' arran fought their famous duel in his backyard; he, himself, came near fighting a duel here at college during his " rat " year while he was getting a shave under peculiar circumstances. The last B on our list stands for Burlingame, an aristocratic name, which is necessary in order to conform with his ])atrician sense of dignity and his Roman nose. Upon turning to the D ' s we find one Stanley Day, a queer mixture of good and evil. Says Professor Ruffner: " While I was traveling in the State recently I met a lady who told me that Mr. Day, while staying at her home, came in one night from a muddy tramp around the farm, and without taking the trouble to remove his hat or bo.ots, made a flying dive over the foot-board, landed in the center of one of her nice, clean beds, and proceeded to sleep there without the further removal of wearing apparel. " Knowing Stanley ' s love for sleep, we doubt not the truthfulness of this narrative. 80 Eddy is the next unit in our structure, and he was Hghtly sketched in the introduction of this paper, but his running mate, " Luke " Erdman, is worthy of mention because of his remarkable success in the social world ; Ford holds down the F ' s, and that he is strictly square and just is evidenced by his deep love of Justice ; he walks with Justice, talks with Justice, and when he goes to bed he dreams of Justice; Justice has filled his life. The next letter of our alphabet is given a good start in the person of one " Lefty " Grace, who is pretty well known as the M. A. C. Speed King, and needs very little praise along that line ; but the Historian would dearly love to hin: that those same legs which have so often broken the tape for him have far oftener borne him through the nights blackness away to safety from the local Cop ' s vehement oaths. Gray and Griffen finish u]i our G ' s ; in class periods they sit side by side, chew tobacco with a muffled munch and spit carefully and deliberately beneath each other ' s chair. The H ' s begin and end with " Dutch " Hindman. All of us are well enough satisfied with " Heiney ' s " school work and athletics, but his classmates insist that his gastronomical cravings are abnormal, inasmuch as he considers lubricating oil far superior to all other forms of beverage. How he is to captain our football team on such a diet is known only to " Heiny. " The name of Knatz is the next to appea r before us, and because Knatz is so reticent it is rather hard to get a line on his specialty ; however, since he lead.s his course in scholastic work, it may suffice to say that " Still water runs deep. " Kenneth Knode. Class President, drops into our alphabet at this point, and while " X " has never been exacting in the selection of his food-stuffs, he has always had a weakness for di.shes of Chinese concoction ; and, until the autumn of 1914 rice seemed to appeal strongly to his palatal nerves. How- ever, since the beginning of his Junior year he has not mentioned this subject, and there are those who attribute his success as captain of our baseball team during the past season to this change in diet. Lodge is the only man among us w ho may boast of having the same initial letter as does the sweet sounding word " Love, " and he firmly main- tains that this coincidence allows him special privileges — at least so says the fair lady who, at our mask ball last Hallowe ' en, fashioned her costume a la Satan. Ralph McHenry, our a])ostle of Demosthenes, is indeed one of those complex and contrary characters which are the despair of all biographers ; the only comment which the Historian dares to make is that he is the " argu- ingist " Irishman who ever passed beneath the portals of ] L A. C. Three other " Macs " adorn our roster — McPirian, McKenna and IcLean. While none need introduction or explanation, it is worthy of mention to say that the former two have never been seen in company with one of the fairer sex, and that the 81 last named has very little to do with any sex, either fair or unfair. Alorris is the fourth and last M we poss ess, and, to tell the truth, it requires more than human effort to think of anything that cannot be said about him. " Duke " Reisinger heads and foots the R ' s. " Duke " ' is a quiet, unassum- ing chap who has lately mingled somewhat with the skirt world, but as yei- this character is in its infancy. " Sandy " Sando starts oft ' the long list of S ' s, and while we have not been able to find out much about him, we are given to understand that someone will have to burn more than one gallon of midnight oil to place himself be- tween Sando and the Honor Medal of the Chemical Course. Next comes Smith and Smoot, two good-looking horticultural sports, the former hails from Georgetown, the latter from God knows where. Steinmetz, Sterling and Sunstone complete the S ' s. Steinmetz has exhib- ited a keen foresight to business by interesting himself in the Park, Auto Repair Company, a thrifty garage of our little metropolis. Sterling has distinguished himself in the literary organizations of our College as a debater of no mean ability, and has also placed to ihis credit various successful escapades into Hyattsville society. It need only be said; of Sunstone that he is the owner of that barroom bass which arises out of the depths of different harmonious (?) selections rendered in and around Calvert Hall. Taymen starts off the T ' s, and " Tay " is another individual who has had dreams of fortune in the automobile business. Taylor and Towles follow next, and they are both quiet chaps who desire no publicity. We pass on and run into one " Fritz " White, the greatest sur])rise of the class. For nearly five years " Fritz " followed the straight and narrow path; however, early in his Junior year he ran amuck and has since rapidly made up for lost time. On the fifteenth of last January he decided that chemistry would not suffice to claim the undivided attention of his ever evolving intel- lectuality, and on that date he blackened a j reviously flawless record by mak- ing his debut into the merry whirl of Rossbourg social life. Wilson is the next and last man upon the roster of our little band. He is a good boy, wears glasses and a purple sweater and is perhaps a fitting period with wihich to punctuate our long and involved sentence. And now, kind and patient reader, you have acquired a more or less accu- rate knowledge of the peculiarities and eccentricities, whims and ambitions of each individual whom Fate has guided here and united in the bonds of Junior- hood. We are all looking forward to next year when we will have reached the goal of our ambitions to be Seniors. Thus endeth the history of the junior Class. 82 I ) u oi O 2 ■— w I H TMjB SIBSS D ' l ' j=f efl p €J Colors : Green and Cold Motto : Labor Omnia Vincit President K. T. Knode OFFICERS. Kenneth T.

C. o o X u a: 1 5 X H [- SDPHDriDRE .- 1 - ij.ii-iDj: ' Di u mxiD-j s Ch} m T the beginning of this scholastic year, the Class of 1917 assumed its first real responsibilities, both individually and collectively. This realization stimulated within us the desire to not only measure up to the standards of the class, but to make this the best and greatest Sophomore Class in the history of the Mary- land Agricultural College. In the early part of October, the Sophomore Class held a meeting in the Auditorium for the purpose of extending a welcome to the new students. The rat rules were read, after which Vice-President W. D. Barrett delivered a short address on the attitude of the Class of ' 17 toward the Freshman Class. In the course of Mr. Barrett ' s remarks, he emphasized particularly the neces- sity of abolishing violent hazing, stating that this was a thing of the past and not in harmony with the present progressive policy of the class. In its stead, he declared, a closer relationship should be established between the two classes, thus co-ordinaring in a systematic way their several functions, at the same time insuring the greatest autonomy for the work in promoting the interests of the classes The first step in this direction was the inauguration of athletic contests between the Sophomore and Freshman classes. These contests have now taken the place of the traditional rat meetings, which were so popular in the days of the Old Barracks. The first scrimmage was a cane rush held on September 2.Tth, in the presence of a large number of enthusiastic and curious spectators. The Sophs battled heroically on the famous campus of M. A. C. for supremacy. The Sophomore Class seemed to be the faster, and as the opposing sides crashed together the foremost Sophomore made a des])erate lunge for the cane, but — too late, for Chauncy Pyle and " Hot ' ' James snatched it into Sophomore terri- tory. Instantly the two classes represented a wriggling, twisting, squirming, seething, fighting mass of humanity. The Sophomores jnit up a wonderful fight, but when time was called the cane was still in their territory, and the Freshmen we re declared the victors. Some time in the latter part of November a Tug-o ' - ' ar over Paint ] ' )ranch was proposed. This was held on the -Sth of December. The Sophomores were confident of winning, their team being composed mostly of men who were famous on the gridiron ; and, in truth, they presented a formidable appearance. The Freshman team was apjiarently somewhat weaker; so, through the courtesy of the captain we permitted the Freshmen to drive stakes, piles, etc., in the ground, in order to insure a firmer foothold, these serving as an auxiliary agency of resistance in supplying that which was lacking in their physical make-up. 87- It was this generosity that whipped us, and in gratitude, we were dragged unceremoniously through the chill, and murky waters of Paint Branch. There is an old superstition to the effect that the third trial is successful. Coincident with this superstiti on, the Sophomore Class won the third contest, which was a pocket billiard tournament. This victory privileged us to fly our class banner, and it may now be seen on the pinnacle of Science Hall furling und unfurling in graceful rythm, daily waving a triumphant greeting to her loyal sons. Professor Creese was so startled when Donnet passed the physics condition exam, that his stogy suflfered inattention for two whole days ; but when Jawn passed his second tenn, poor Mike suffered such a relapse that the Sophomore Class became deeply concerned for fear he would be unable to meet them the next day. However, John is to be congratulated, for he shed countless beads of perspiration and coined many a picturesque expression, which served him well in his eulogies on " The Silent One. " Simultaneously with crediting " Hap " Mess with a zip. Doc Mac said, " It ' s a long way to Tipperary. " " Hap " gazed mournfully at the woodpecker just out- side the window and paraphrased, " It ' s a long way to Greenbackville. " ' As the echo of Doc ' s " Tipperary " reverberated through the chambers of " Oby ' s " lethargic brain, he stirred drowsily, subconscious that Doc had spoken. After these sounds penetrated the walls of slumber, eventually finding intelligence in the dormant brain, " Oby ' ' opened his eyes in wonderment, gazed interrogatively at Doc, then innocently winked at this self-same friend of fanners, and whispered to " Hon- ker, " " If Doc could only see me crawl out at 8.10. " This has been a glorious year, replete with good times and humorous hap- penings ; but, with all, we have not forgotten our responsibilities. We realized last September that the days of childhood were over, that we had approached the border line of manhood, the line of demarcation the youth longs so to cross. Yet, when the time comes to make the crossing he is reluctant, and loves to linger just a little while longer — " to bide a wee " — ere he takes the final step, retaining nothing but men:ories to remind him of the sweetest days of his life. It was due to this desire to linger that certain escapades, which tradition teaches us is a function of the Sophomore Class, were successfully managed. Yet, these few did not tarry long and ere Christmas had come, we were a unit in fostering and promoting the best interests of the class. President Derrick and his staflf enjoy the admiration of all well-thinking students for their singleness of purpose and activity in carrying out their policy for class betterment, and it is the concensus of opinion in this class that the meth- ods employed and results accomplished have won us the trust and esteem of the Faculty. If this is so, our work has been well done, and we hope the year of 1913- ' 16 will serve to weld stronger the bonds of unity, thus strengthening us in our eflforts to add one more star to the crown of glory of our beloved Alma Mater. . 88 I ) u u oi O o X o ' l m ui J. 9 It ' Colors : Maroon and White Motto : Quamvis Sara Sint Aspera Ascendite OFFICERS.

SNOW BALLS AND HIGH BALLS ji];i£i-i:DJ: ' 7 ' oi - 113 [S ' -XB smiBH C hi i XE day, soon after we started our College career at this ancient site of learning, we were told in chapel that we would shortly partici- pate in an athletic contest of a kind that had never been held here before — a cane rush between the Freshmen and the Sophomores. Let us recall the afternoon when we battled the Sophomores so valiantly. We were lined up at one end of a hundred-yard field, the Sophs at the other end. Professor Richardson fires the pistol. The classes crash together. One of our men has the cane ! He falls, and both classes pile up on him. The cry rings out, " Hold them, Freshies ! The cane ' s on their territory! Hold them! " The Sophs strive furiously to push us back, but in vain. Slowly, inch by inch, the hero at the bottom of the pile pulls the cane forward, and slowly the minutes pass. The Sophs hurl themselves again and again at our impregnable line. At last the stop-pistol goes ofif. We have won by 10 yards, and the first cane rush goes down in M. A. C. ' s history to our credit. Nothing else of importance happened until about Thanksgiving, when we had a tug-o -war with the Sophomores. Many were they who predicted that we had no chance at all to win, for the team selected from the Sophomore Class greatly outweighed our team. The tug-o ' -war was held over Paint Branch at a place where the branch is about forty feet wide. The opposing team was on one bank, our team on the other. Greatly to the surprise of all — except us — our team pulled the Sophomores ofif their bank, through the water, and halfway up the bank on the other side. If the tug-o ' -war had lasted a half minute more the Sophomores would have been pulled the entire distance from their side to ours. Soon after the tiig-o ' -war came the nnich-dreaded examinations, and then we went home, glad to see the ho:re folks again, and to get a much-needed rest. The second term passed in diligent work. After the examinations and a week of the tliird term, the Easter vacation — a welcome rest, but all too short. For the remainder of the third term we had one great trouble. The head of each department of the College seemed to think that our spare time was for the sole purpose of doing outside work in his department — and each assigned us enough outside work on his particular subject to take up all our spare time — and then wanted to know vvhv we had not done his work. The examinations were really a welcome ; they marked the end of the school year. Examinations, competitive drill, and con mencement all passed in a flash; we said good-bye to one another, and the Freshman year of the Class of ' IS was no more. 93 t iHitillli.Mlallt ' ' yai u 2 X I ) u OS s m Chim d1 I9l£3 p.

LEisslEr, G. 105 106 y o 1 H -■- , » wan»l- jy HE Congress of the United States, subject to certain conditions, now appropriates annually a generous sum for each Agricultural College of the United States. One of the conditions imposed by this grant is that the students shall receive a course of training in Military Tactics. The instructor of this course is supplied by the W ' ar Department, and is an officer of the Regular Army, Major J. A. Dapray. The value of such military training may be considered from two viewi oints : First, that of the United States Government ; and, second, that of the individual student. To consider the first: The Government, depending as it does upon the citizen soldiers for its ' olunteer Army in times of national peril, realizes that an army, recruited from raw material as regards both officers and men, would be a most helpless proposition in these days of quick action. If the officers were trained men they would be of inestimable value in shaping these collections of citizens into efficient armies. Government aided schools are therefore required to give such a course in Military Tactics as will create in this country a body of men whose knowledge of the Military Art is sffiucient to enable them to officer companies of infantry when called upon by the Government in the defense of the country. From the viewpoint of the student, the military training makes for character — " it systematically develops the body and it educates the mind along a consistent line for the double purpose of clear thinking and effective practical work. " " It exercises the character, it disciplines the mind, it inculcates habits of subordination to lawful authority, of strict personal accountability for word and act, of truth telling, of integrity and fidelity to trust, of simplicity of life and of courage. " In addition, a cadet has during his term as such, most excellent opportunities to perfect .himself in the great art of commanding others. This problem is for every cadet to solve some time during his cadet career. He finds that he n ust know his men, and that he must know how to appeal to those under him, if he wishes to get results without antagonizing them. 108 The War Department designates an officer of the General Stafif of the Regu- lar Army to make an annual inspection of the Military Department of each of the institutions of learning in the United States at which an officer is regularly de- tailed. There are about one hundred such institutions. The inspector rates these schools according to their status and military efficiency. We have always ranked high among the colleges in our class. ' J ' he corps of cadets is organized as a battalion of three companies, staff and band, the drill and administration of which conform as far as possible to that of the regular army. All students other than those physically disabled and those specially excused by the President of the College, are required to drill, and upon entering are enrolled in one of the companies of the battalion. The instruction in the Military Department is both practical and theoretical. The practical instruction includes the school of the Soldier, Squad, Company and Battalion in Close and Extended Order, Ceremonies of Guard-Mounting, Review and Inspection, Dress Parade, Escort to the Color, Advance and Rear Guard Work, Patrolling and Scouting, Marches, ' isual Signaling. The theoretical instruction is given to all members of the Senior Class and consists of instruction in Infantry Drill Regulations, Manual of Guard Duty, Field Service Regulations, etc., supplemented by lectures on tactical subjects, Army Regulations, Tactics, and Military Law. The battalion of cadets is equipped with the United States magazine rifle, calibre .30, known as the Krag-Jorgensen, with complete equipment of side arms, cartridge box, etc. The cadet officers and non-commissioned officers are equipped with the regulation West Point cadet sword. The officers and non-commissioned officers of the corps are selected with ref- erence primarily to their fitness for the duties they will be required to perform. Their general department and proficiency in academic work are also given weight in making such selection. Commissioned officers are, as a rule, selected from the Senior Class, Sergeants from the Junior Class, and Corporals from the Sophomore Class. 109 BATTALION STAFF Major J. A. Daprav Commandant C.

Its new quarters, at first ample for its needs, have already been outgrown. With a piano, a victrola, books, billiards, and smaller games, it has afforded entertainment and amusement to an increased number. A " Mutt and Jeff " membership campaign raised the membership to 212, with the resuh that only four colleges of our class in the United States have higher percentages of the student body as members. In a religious way, it has provided during the present school year, speakers and music for twenty-three Sunday afternoon services, with a total attendance of over one thousand people. Ministers of the neighboring churches were put in touch with the students of their denominations and efforts made to foster church and Sunday school attendance. Three week-day llible classes have been well attended, yet there were many boys who were enlisted either in Sunday school work or in the Y. M. C. A. Bible class work. One of the working aims of the Association is to urge boys to seek ' God ' s Will for their lives, and no search is fully productive without the study of the Bible. It is hoped that no other features of the work will ever be allowed to detract from this important purpose. The growing interest in chess resulted in the formation of a Chess Club which now has its own room, where the members may play undistilrbed. The employment bureau has obtained work for a number of boys and is at present preparing to place several in summer jobs. The entertainment-reception given by the Y. M. C. A. certainly proved to be a " Mixer. " Fun and frolic completely routed dignity and care. The Bentztown Bard, in a benefit entertainment, delighted his audience by his journeys in Childhood Town and added a neat sum to the Y. M. C. A. treasury. The Freshman- Sophomore contest proved interesting and worth while. The Freshman won the Cane Rush and their flag with its " 18 " fluttered over the camims as a token of their victory. Later they won the tug-o ' -war by pulling the Sophs through Paint Branch. The Billiard Tournament proved their dovvn- " fall and the Sophs hoisted their white banner with its " 17 " over Morrill Hall. Tennis and baseball are yet to be played. There is real work to be done by the Y. M. C. A. Enthusiasm and united etTort on the part of the student body should do much to make our plane of living and thinking as high and pure as is the air of our beautiful campus. 144 X D G s 2 6 5 S u j a 6 IN THE Y. M. C. A. ROOMS SOPHOMORE-FRESHMAN BILLIARD TOURNAMENT i3j:i.i.j:jA.jix)i3 GAME of straight pocket billiards is absolutely a game of skill. In few games is there so little chance. This makes it one of the cleanest amuse- ments. The only stigma it can possibly bear is that due to its environment, and where its surroundings are good it is a genteel form of entertainment. On this account the Y. M. C. A. welcomes it and surrounds it with the atmosphere as deserves a clean and wholesome one. Our billiard tables have been in constant use during recreation hours. The four dollars per week paid to the students in charge of the room may well be considered a productive investment, as is the two hundred and fifty dollars in- vested in the tables themselves. On the reverse side of the billiard tickets is printed the following: " The Y. M. C. A. is what YOU and others make it. You owe it to yotirself — 1st. To make the Billiard Room a place where you would be willing to have your MOTHER call at ANY time. 2nd. To make games a help and not a hindrance to your school work. Xo smoking or indecent language will be allowed in the Y. M. C. A. rooms. " 147 History of M. A. C. Weekly HB M. A. C. Weekly was founded Oct. 13, 1914, being an outgrowth of the " Triangle, " which had been in existence for over five years. The " Triangle " had accomplished a great work. For five years it had ke[ t the sons and friends of Maryland in touch with their Alma Mater. They welcomed its bi-monthly visits. The " Triangle " served its purpose and served it well. It was an alumni paper pure and simple. Much of its subject-matter was compiled by the Faculty. The student body took but very little interest in the newspaper. Often the editorial staflf was com- posed of students who were for the most part figure-heads as far as their news- paper work was concerned. The only important position was the business man- agership. The Class of ' 15 elected an energetic man for the 1915 Editor-in-Chief. He was not content to stand idly by and watch the paper run itself. He was de- termined to make the College paper a paper for the College, for the students as well as for the alumni. And he did. On Oct. 15, at a " Triangle " board meeting, the College paper was made a weekly, and its name changed to " M. A. C. Weekly. " With the change of name came a change of control. The Faculty Committee gladly retired to the position of censors. The Business Manager started right by making the financial side of the proposition safe. The editors got out their work on time; the students got today ' s news today. It was no easy task. A great deal of prejudice had to be overcome and pessimistic predictions of failure met with a smile. Before many issues had appeared students could be seen in groups reading the " Weekly " and discussing its articles. It was alive. It contained real " dope. ' ' It dealt with student activities and student problems. Besides being a student newspaper the " Weekly " also became a better alumni paper than the " Triangle. " It was more prompt in carrying its names, and it contained more news. The alumni appreciated the new paper. Many of them wrote and said so. The Alumni Editor, who superintendent the alumni page, made his department equal to the other departments. The " M. A. C. Weekly " has become an important factor in the college life of M. A. C. It has accomplished more than the wildest dreams of its founders. Of their efforts they may be justly proud, because M. A. C. is proud of them. 148 ' M. A. cj. W bM WrMM W. E.

N the year of 1891 a band of M. A. C. boys, who had become tired of College life devoid of social activities, bowed their heads at the shrine of music and thereby confessing devotion to the gay muse, Terpsichore, organized the Rossbourg Club. When the club was first organized many names for it were sub- mitted but all gave way to the present one. What is now the main building of the Maryland Agricultural College Experiment Station was once a famous hostelry, the Rossbourg Inn. Old inhabitants tell us that the old Rossbourg Inn, eight miles from Wash- ington and directly in front of the College, was in its day a famous breakfasting place ; that many gay stage parties from Baltimore and Washington would spend their evening there, and, bringing forth " Uncle Fred, " the white-haired darkey, with his famous " dancing " fiddle, would bow and courtsy daintily to the low, sweet strains of a minuet, so very appropriately the club was named the Rossbourg Club. The club has just completed one of the most successful years in its history, having had a larger enrollment and more dances than ever before. The members of the Rossbourg Club extend to the Faculty and their friends and ])articularly to the young ladies who have made our dances a great success. 168 " IlDSs ' bD ' nTej Ms:m " bsTa R. S.

Many times we have felt discouraged and thought that the interest in literary work had died out, but at other times inspired by some new impulse it bursts forth in all its splen- dor and shows the skeptic its real power. Morrill has been very active during the past year. Meetings were held every Friday evening unless there was something unavoidable to prevent them. Her representatives have been working hard and have won honors for her, as well as for themselves. In oratorical contests, in debates, on the M. A. C. Weekly or RgvBiLLE Staff her men have always reflected credit on their society. This year we believe that literary life and spirit has improved and has sur- passed that of the last several years. Each meeting was characterized by gen- uine and wholesome enthusiasm. As a whole, the programs were not merely pre- pared to inform and entertain but to give inspiration to each and every member. Last year the orator was chosen from the Morrill Society to represent our College against St. John ' s, Washington, and Waryland in the Fifteenth Annual Contest of the Oratorical Association of Maryland Colleges. In the final debate, the debate for the Alumni Medal, our society again carried off the honors, her representatives winning the decision of the judges, and one of her representatives winning the medal. Especial mention should be made of the good work and attentive interest which the new members of the society have shown. About thirty members of the Freshman Class have been taken into active membership. They are taking an active interest and an active part in all our programs and give promise to better things yet to come. This has given the members an inspiration to make our society the leader in all literary matters of the College. The prospects for the future have never been brighter, and may the success of the society continue throughout the life of the College. 160 iVJaiiJ.Liii ' i:; ul iiii; lyioJ Tlll LLl ' i ' di ' iij: ' ' Luc:-lii-f:y C.

W. Mercer, who at that time was the largest stockholder in the College, was organized for the cultivation of the social and intellectual faculties of the students. The society was a great suc- cess, the meetings were well attended, and minutes were strictly recorded until November 23, 1889, when for seme unknown reason, all interest in the society was lost. It was again organized in 1892, under the name of the New Mercer Literary Society, which continued until December of 1894. In the spring of the same year the Morrill Literary Society was organized and in January, 1895, " The House of Commons ' ' was formed. The last men- tioned society was of short duration, and in November, 1896, the Morrill and New Mercer Literary Societies were organized. In the early days of the two societies many meetings were held in which a great deal of rivalry and real interest was shown. Many of the subjects chosen for discussion may seem a little ridiculous, as " Mental Faculties of the Sexes " and " Elocjuence or Music, " but they attained the ultimate result — the power of speech. At present the interest in the New Mercer is being revived among the stu- dents. At each meeting the entertainment committee announces a pre-arranged schedule for the following meeting. All of these meetings are not given over to strict literary work, but are interspersed with songs and music bv different mem- bers of the society. President Patterson has offered a beautiful loving cup to the society winning three times in an annual inter-society debate. The society which wins the cup will have its name and the year engraved upon it. With a growing school, and a school which is each year attracting students of better all-round calibre there ought to be two strong, active, literary societies. We regret that we do not have a room for our permanent quarters. However, considering the abnormal condi- tions which have befallen us, we are proud to say that New Mercer has been quite active during the past year. Her men taking a leading part in all the literarv activities of the Colleges and have niade the name — New Mercer — stand out more prominent than ever before. 162 MajriiheTs ' Dif TSie New Mercer ' Isx hj: . iV osii ' a- ' iy T.

However, be that as it may, and giving all their just dues, it is most certain that no course we have looms up with so gigantic an attraction as that of the Animal Husbandry when it offers annually to three students a trip — absolutely free of all expenses — to the City of Chicago, and a chance for each to bring home a Silver Cup of Honor and a four-hundred-dollar-scholarship to any of our numerous State Uni- versities. The three men composing this team— known as the Stock-Judging Team — are usually selected from the Junior and Senior Classes about three weeks before leaving for the contest, and as soon as they are chosen, every means is used by the Professor of Animal Husbandry to place in their hands the knowledge which should equip them to return as victors. The National Dairy Show, at which the contest takes place, is held in the City of Chicago, usually in the month of November, and about sixteen States are represented. This year arrangements were made whereby that part of the distance which the Maryland team covered during the night on the way out to Chicago was covered during the day when returning, thus giving an opportunity of seeing that part of the country surrounding the railroad over nearly the entire distance traveled; and the views which were to be had of the vast, broad fields of farm crops and livestock, dotted here and there with Western plans for building improvements, was in itself a small education for the Eastern agricul- tural student. The team remained in Chicago four days, which afforded ample time to see the city ' s many wonderful sights. Probably the most interesting of the numerous features taken in were the great slaughtering and packing plants of Swift and Armour, and the buildings and remains of the World ' s Fair once held in that city. Maryland has now taken part in this Stock-Judging Contest each year since 1911, and while some of her teams have made better records than others, all have acquitted themselves quite creditably. However, whether a team happens to win the " Capital " or the " Boobie ' ' prize, there can be no differentiation in the oppor- tunities offered for a wonderfully interesting, instructive and entertaining trip, and it is exceedingly doubtful if any other three men in the college than those three composing the annually selected Stock-Judging Team will ever have the chance of taking such a trip under similar ideal conditions for grasping those finer jwints which fall within the sphere of their particular course of study. 166 ' mimi mmmm mmmmm ' mmmm ' M i wmMmm ' namm mmmmmmmimmmm(mmmmm(mmmmtiimcMmmmmmmfummm( TOWLES BXOWN FORD :? ' HE Students " Interstate Fruit Judging League was formed at Morgan- town, W. Va. The first contest was held at Morgantown tinder the auspices of the University of West Virginia on January 8, 1915, and seven colleges were represented. The object of the league is to promote the art and science of pomology, fruit growing and the establishment of more uniform standards and of higher ideals. The first contest consisted in identifying and placing sixty plates of apples containing twenty-five varieties. The Maryland team, which was represented by Messrs. Montell, Gray and McCutcheon, stood sixth in the contest. A large silver loving cup was offered by the West Virginia State Horti- cultural Society to the team scoring the highest number of points, and was won by the New Jersey team. However, before this trophy can become the permanent property of any institution it must be won by it three times in succession. Maryland students should get busy. They ought to win the next contest. Here is a splendid opportunity to do something. The second contest of the league will be held in the Fifth Regiment Armory in Baltimore at the time of the annual meeting and ex ' hibit of the Maryland State Horticultural Society. That this will be a great advantage to all concerned — the College, Horticultural Society, the fruit growers and, above all, those whose privi- lege it may be to take part in the contest — goes without cjuestion. The students here have already shown a keener interest in systematic pomology, and as a conse- quence, more and better work was done in this branch than ever before. Stu- dents making the best records in systematic pomology will be selected to repre- sent the College in this contest. Professor Beckenstrater is chairman of the committee on arrangements. The large and varied exhibit (considered the best in the East) of the Mary- land State Horticultural Society will afford excellent material for the contest. We are aware of the fact that it is the best fruit exhibit East of the Rocky Moun- tains, and here is an opportunity to show a large number of sijecialists coming to this contest from over a wide range of territory that it really is so. Their opin- ion will have great weight and will go far in establishing Maryland ' s name as a great fruit producing State. Let us hope, then, that our fruit growers will distinguish themselves by put- ting up the best exhibit we ever had, and let us further hope that the students who will have the honor of representing M. A. C. will further emphasize our importance by winning the contest. 168 iB8.i!K)Bi,mM AA ' i!jmiaiHimiagaa i WTmi Jnrlijiirixj TBm.Il mrMWtk viiQmrM tfM s mMrmft iriffwrsfMriiSi Mc.CUTCHEON GRAY MONTELL RIOR to 1893 there were no athletic teams at M. A. C, but since that time athletics have been gradually ascending until now we rank among the highest. It was in the fall of " 93 that Captain R. ' . Silvester obtained H. M. Strickler as athletic director and coach of our team. Captain Silvester also negotiated for a loan of $.i,000 to build a gymnasium, and it was these two events that marked the first foothold of athletics in our College. The fall of ' 93 saw the following teams on our football schedule: Johns Hop- kins, Washington College, Episcopal High School, Rock Hill College. This showed that the team was not wonderful but nevertheless creditable considering the fact that it was the first season played by an organization representing this school. The first ball team was organized the following spring and was cap- tained by our noble Vice-President, Thomas H. Spence. From this time on, athletics rose and fell with each rise greater than the suc- ceeding fall, so that now our teams stand in prominence above those of our com- petitors. In the fall 1912 the policy of obtaining a graduate coach was adapted. The services of H. C. Byrd, of the Class of " 08, were obtained, and from that time on a remarkable change has been noticeable in the strength of our teams. In the winter of 1913 basket ball was started. Lack of suitable material was noticeable and also a place to practice had to be found outside of College Park. The football team of that season won the undisputed championship of this State, defeating all State teams without being scored upon. These are the scores of that year: M. A. C, 26; Johns Hopkins, 0. M. A. C., 46; Western Maryland College, 0. ■ M. A. C, 13 ; St. John ' s College, 0. M. A. C, 20; Washington College, 0. The baseball team of the spring following won the State championship. The football team of 1914 once more won the championship, losing only to Western Maryland College. The relay team has, to date, won all races in which it has participated. Taken all in all, the was a remarkable one at M. A. C. in the last few years, and to quote an intercollegiate record : " The Maryland Agricultural College was represented by an eleven which not only won a State championship, but which made a remarkable record in so doing. The rise of this College in the last two or three years is astounding and reflects great credit on those responsible. " 172 Onir W ' ' Mmt FootbaU 7075 ipi6 BowLAND— : I., ' 11, ' 12, ' 13, ' 14.

" Curly " immediately put them through the paces and soon had three teams picked. Some very ])romising material was present and indications pointed to a j)rosper(iUs season. The old men knew, and the new men soon found out, that football was no ladies ' game, and that " Curly " meant business. Our first contest was with iJaltinKjrc I ' dlytechnic on Se])teniber twenty- sixth. These youngsters came o er here and sprung a marked surprise, be- fore our men realized what had ha])pened the P)altinwreans had scorer! a touchdown and very soon the game was o er. liut this defeat can readily be overlooked since our team had only been (in the field four days, while " Poly " had been practicing several weeks. The first real game of the season was with Catholic University of Wash- ington. Our men journeyed to lirookland, accompanied by nearly all of the student body, and everyone of the latter were joyous over the fact that they went and saw old M. A. C. capture the first college game of the season. In this game the real worth of the team ct)uld be seen and, although our goal was several times endangered, the linemen were always at the right spot to prevent a touchdown. The only scorni of the game was a single touchdown by Axt, a new man, who had played extrcnieiy good ball for I ' altimore City College before he placed his future in the hands of M. A. C. On October tentii, the team traveled to Westminster to tackle for the firs time a State team. Those who made the trip will never forget its pleasures and agonies. They went from College to I ' altimore by train and in that citv engaged automobiles to take them to Westminster. The automobiles, if thev may be called such, were very much lacking in that necessary ciuality called " go, " and when they finally reached Western .Maryland College, there remained hardly time to dress bef(jre going on the lield. Rather than delay the game, the men went to ])lay without anything to eat since early niorning, with the result that, although they played brilliantly under the circumstances, we were defeated by a score of 20 to 13. Following this game, our men had two weeks in which to prepare for the Johns Hopkins contest. As usual, we went over to Baltimore, never fearing defeat, but not overconfident. Hopkins had forever been a hard team for us to tackle, and when our men plowed through them for two touchdowns, while holding them scoreless, there was rejoicing without bounds. After the game, a long snake line was formed by the M. A. Ceasars and very £oon Hopkins followed suit. The scoring was done by Derrick, who made both touchdowns, and Hindman, who kicked both goals. In this game Derrick showed his worth, and this was speedily recognized by the St. John ' s team, all of whom witnessed the contest. 179 Just three days later, on October 27 , the team again took a journey, this time to Annapolis, the object being to humiliate St. John ' s. This feat was accom- plished in a glorious manner, being the result of a touchdown by Pennington, a goal by Knode and a droj) kick by Mess. In this game " tlappy " made a beautiful drop kick from the 40-yard line, the ball going squarely over the bar. The touch- down was the result of a forward pass by Derrick to " ' ic " Pennington, who caught the ball and would have run all the way to the gym, in order to be sure of scoring, had not some one tackled him before he got to the fence. The win- ning of this game was a great feat, inasmuch as the team had played a very strenuous game just three days ])revious with Johns Hoi)kins. The next contest was with Washington College at Chestertown, on November sixth. This game also fell to our team ' s onslaught by the tune of 3 to 0. The score was the result of a drop kick by " flaiipy " Mess, who once more showed the prowess of his toe. Those who saw the game claimed that the ' ashingtonians :-hould have lost by a larger margin, as their quality of ball did not compare to that put up by the Farmers. This victory was the clinching hold on the championship of Maryland, making two consecutive championships in football fall to our hands. The Gallaudet College of Washington was the next team to be tackled by our men and although the M. A. Ceasars put up a plucky fight, they were out- classed and so lost by the score of 2i to 0. The feature of the game was the wonderful interference put up by the Kendall Greeners, and it was this factor, without a doubt, which won the game for them. The last game of the season was staged at Chester, Pennsylvania, with the I ' ennsylvania Military College on Thanksgiving Day. In return for the beating which they meeted to our men the year before, they received one of the worst beatings of the year, being swept off their feet with a final count of 26 to 0. W ith the finish of this game there were many football men who heaved sighs of relief, and relaxed from the heavy strain under which they had been since the middle of September. Thus ended a very successful football sea. ' -on, and coming right upon the championshii) of the previous year was a commendable feat — one which will stay in the minds of those who saw the games for a long while. Too much credit cannot be given " Curly " ' liyrd, to whose faithful, earnest and never ceasing work is partly due the glory accomplished by the team of l ' J14-l J15. ♦4|i 4 -» 4 ' ♦ 4 " = ' ♦ 180 " HIP " BOWLAND " Hip " l]owland entered M. A. C. in 1911, coming- from Washington College, where he was a star football player. The fall he entered here saw him in the line and there he has stayed for four years, doing wonderful work with his untold strength. His ability and worth were recognized by his teammatejs and his elec- tion as Captain for the season of 1914 was a proper reward for his good work. Although suffering from several injuries, he broke up many plays and deserves a hard earned position on the All Maryland Team. " HIP " BOWLAKID " NICK " CARTER Here we have " Nick, " the best looking man on the footlmll team. " Nick " hails from Annapolis and probably did not like the looks of St. John ' s, so thought he would take a chance with M. A. C. His favorite position on the team is full Ijack and when he " hit the line " with his speed and " beef, " the linemen thought a cyclone had struck them. " Xick " is similar to the famous dime novel hero " Nick " Carter in that he is some football player and a shining light with the ladies.

" Curly, " the coach, hasn ' t enough praise for " ' ic, " and says, " There is an example of steadfastness, with the reward as high as one could ask for — the honor of having played every minute of every game.

' D ' J l I ' IIxI iBCD ' XS. £23 T the first call for candidates for baseball this spring, a large number of promising men reported, and all indications ])ointed toward a very successful season. We had lost one of our pitchers, Hoffecker, First liaseman Montgomery, Star Third I ' .aseman Shij ley, and our entire outfield. These positions had to be filled by new men, with a consequence that there was great rivalry for the open jilaces on the team. First base has been ably filled by Oberlin, who was also a star in football, while third base is now occupied by " Mike " Levin, who has been working hard for a position on the team for three years. For outfielders we have Day, Mcl ' rien, I ' e rkins, Bopst and Donovan to pick from, w hile in the jjitching line we have added Chichester in addition to Der- rick, McHenry and Siegert. The first two will have to bear the brunt of the battle this season, as the other two are not quite equal to the emergency. A few games with Washington High School were played previous to the o])ening of the season, but these games were only ])ractice games and did not count in the final reckoning. The season opened with a game with Catholic Uni- versity at Itrcokland. It was the initial contest for both teams, and owing to the rivalry existing between the two institutions, both were out for blood. When the full nine innings had been ])layed, the scorekeeper found that C. U. had come out on the long end by the tune of 4 to 1, al ' though the game was a great deal more closely contested than the score indicates. Harvey Derrick officiated on the mound for us, pitching a splendid game for so early in the season, but was unfor- tunate in the outcome, due to the fact that C. U. played better all-round ball. This giiine i)ointe(l out some weak places on the team and e eryone exjiected the team to make a grand showing thereafter. ( )n A])ril first Cornell Universitv opened its season with a game on our home grounds, s] ringing a good " AiJril P ' ool ' s " joke on us. They had things just about their own way throughout the game, and at the end of it came out victorious with a score of 10 to 1. Again we were entirely outplayed in the box, on the field and at the bat. Derrick started for us, but lasted only five innings, when he was replaced bv McHenry, who fared no better. Taken all in all, it was not a typical representation of th e baseball that our team was capable of playing. 187 The next day another game was scheduled with Cornell, and a complete reversal of form was shown by us. As both Derrick and Mc Henry had been used in the game the day before, it was up to Chichester, a new boy, to hold the fort. f4e succeeded in doing this in big league style, holding the Ithicans to four scat- tered hits and striking out several Cornell batsmen. We were the first to score, doing so in the first inning. In the fifth Cornell tied the score when Clary knocked the ball over the left field fence for a home run, the only score they were able to get during the entire game. Things went along nip and tuck until the twelfth, when Knode was hit, stole second, and scored ' on Oberlin ' s single, thus ending the game. It was a brilliant extra-inning game, one well worth witnessing, both for clean fielding and excellent pitching by Chichester for us and Russell for Cornell. Chichester showed a marvelous form, being as composed as if he were a regular in a world ' s series game. Too much credit cannot be given him for his performance that day. Our game with William and Mary was cancelled by that team, since they were unable to take the trip. The following Saturday our team journeyed to Baltimore to encounter the Johns ILopkins University in the first game for the State championship. Chiches- ter, due to his great showing against Cornell, was selected to do the twirling for the M. A. Ceasars, in hopes that he would repeat his performance of the week before. We started ofif brilliantly, the first man up making a home run. lU ' .t this did not last long, as they came back with two tallies. From then on it was a close contest, with Johns Hopkins always one nm to the good, and it was with this advantage that the game came to a close. The final score stood 7 to 6 in their favor. This game was featured by hard hitting, Hopkins getting two home runs while we corralled three home runs, one by Knode, and two by Mess, and a three- base hit by Perkins. The next Mondav West A ' irginia came for a game, hoping to repeat their victory of the previous year. They were successful, defeating us 4 to 2 in ten innings. Derrick pitched this contest and deserved to win, but errors lost the game for him. Now that the losses are out of our system, it is hoped and expected that we will capture the remainder of the scali)s we try for. About one-third of the games have been played, but this goes to press, so with it goes the wishes of success in the remainder of the games. 188 TRACK D Of u oi H Track Season iSlI .-♦ ♦• ►♦ijt fst $ ♦ ♦ • ►♦ ♦ S Ji ♦•i S OFFICERS L.

Twenty men enthusiastically re- sponded, and after a few preliminary arrangements had been made concerning outfits, the date was set to begin training January sixth. The first meet in which our men were entered was held Satur- day, February thirteenth, at Convention Hall, in Washington, under the auspices of the George Washington University. In this meet our team showed to better advantage than it had at any other it had participated in for several years, and the team itself, as well as its supporters, had reason to feel proud of its showing. The first event in which we were represented was the 50-yard dash. " Jimmy ' ' Vincent won first place in his heat and finished third in the final, against men from all other colleges, as the event was open to all. Brown, Axt, and Swartz also ran well in this event but not getting first in their heats did not qualify for the finals. Probably one of the most interesting and exciting events of the evening was the race won by Lee Pennington in the 880. He showed his heels to all comers and easily won his race. Both relay teams won their races ; the first team beating our old rivals. St. John ' s. The team consisted of Coggins, Montell, Morris and Grace. The second team, composed of Axt, Swartz, Vincent and Rakeman, easily defeated Gallaudet in the time of 2 minutes 39 seconds. The following -Saturday our men traveled to Baltimore to the meet given by the Johns Hopkins University. In this meet our first relay team, of Morris, Pennington, Montell and Grace, again defeated St. John ' s by a large margin. The second team defeated the Howard Athletic Team of Baltimore without much effort, Axt, Brown, Rakeman and ' incent having things their own way all through the race. Whitney Aitcheson ran a beautiful race in the open mile, pitted against such men as Jack Tait of Toronto. Aitcheson caught the lead in the beginning and held it throughout the race, winning by ten yards. Including this meet, our men had secured a total of nineteen medals in two meets, in itself quite a dis- tinction. The last indoor meet in which we participated came off on Saturday, Febru- ary twenty-seventh, at Convention Hall, in ' ashington. It was held under the auspices of the Georgetown University and turned out to be one of the most suc- cessful meets of the season. For the first time during the indoor season our men failed to capture a place in the meet. The relay team, however, easily won its race, being jjitted against Gallaudet men. 193 Morris, the first man to run for M. A. C, took the pole on the first turn, and touched Pennington oflf a good five yards ahead of his man. " Penny " widened the gap to about fifteen yards, while Montell, who ran third, increased the distance fully twenty-five yards. This left very little for our last man, Grace, to do, so he took things easy and won by half a lap. Grace had not been well before the meet, so his work deserves special credit. As this book goes to the press we are scheduled for a dual meet with Cath- olic University of Washington. We also have entered the relay team in the meet given by the University of Pennsylvania. " MONTY " MONTELL It is not known who first put it into " Monty ' s " head that he could run, but whoever did it, knew what he was talking about. He may not be a moving picture runner, but when it comes to delivering the goods, he is right there. Anyone who has seen him run in the mile knows what he can do, while his position on the relay team shows that, as a quarter- miier, he is very hard to beat. As someone said, " Alonty is the most improved runner in school and will show them all something when the meet comes ofif. " " MONTY " MONTELL " DUCK " PENNINGTON Some say that the only way to make Lee run his best is to say, " Quack, quack, " and he will think he is after a duck in Harve-de- (jrace. Pjefore Lee landed here he received splendid training chasing ducks around the marshes, so it is no wonder that he shines on a muddy track. He is a representative on our relay team and this honor alone is a proof of his ability as a quarter-miler. In the half he also shines, having won a medal for beating all comers in a recent half-mile meet. " DUCK. " PHKIKllKIGTON 194 LACROSSE jF ' Mwriii ■■• [t] R. J. McCuTcnijoN Manager F. J.

' ashington College Park 197 HEN the first of spring rolled around, a call was sent out for lacrosse candidates, with a response of nearly thirty men. It was seen that several of last year ' s team were lacking; the missing men being Truitt, Coster, Rogers and Pyle. These open places were much sought for by the new men and last year ' s subs, so there was plenty of hard work for all those out. Captain T. D. Gray soon had his men working hard, jjracticing in passing the l:)all, catching it and shooting goals. He, himself, attended to keeping the ball out of the net and it took a good pass to get it by him. About the first of April, sides were chosen and scrimmages were started, that soon turned into ones for real blood. The old men were working hard to keep their positions while the new men were trying their best to give a good enough account of themselves to claim a position on the twelve. W ' e have a good new man in Axt, who had previously played for Baltimore City College and his aggressiveness soon won him a place on the team. The first game in this line of sports was played on April the fourteenth with ISaltimore City College as the opponent. The team representing us that day consisted of ten Seniors, one Sophomore and one Sub-Freshman. The game was hotly contested throughout and many hair-raising plays occurred which brought the audience to its feet as one. City College was the first to score, but our men soon evened matters. Then the ne.xt goal was shot by one of our men, putting us in the lead. Very soon afterward one of City College ' s men shot a goal, tieing the score. It was at this time that the excitement was keenest and both sides were fighting hard for the advantage. Just a few minutes before the end of the game one of the City College men managed to shoot another goal making the score i-2 against us. Before the game had progressed much more the whistle blew and the game was at an end. In this way we lost our first game of lacrosse. This year the Athletic Council has admitted lacrosse to the standard athletics so it is expected that a greater amount of interest will be shown in this sport than in the past. Admitting lacrosse to the group of standard athletics means that the equipment will be bought by the College and not by the individual players, and for this reason it is expected and hoped that better teams will be turned out — ones which will reflect as much glory on M. A. C. as the other sports have done. 198 liii ' .rii ' ir I I ' I i ' iMiMii |.ii:;ii;ii.iiiiiiiiiii m ' i ii ' I -i ' ' r r i ' i ' tt inI ' iniKiir I ' l. i • ■ ' ■ • ' • % t ■ ' ■ i ' i- i. rin-i ' ' ! m ' I ' l-i ' ii ' i iim iiii Seniors in Lacr rfiiiiiii I I • I I I I I I I I iiii ?|ii|l!| |l I IIII I I |i |i|ii|[||i| I I III HI Ul lllliilll I III i I I I I I I I I lllllvl III I I I I I I I I 11 |i ' l 11 • lllllilllil " " MAC " McCUTCHEON For four years " Mac ' " has toiled laborious- ly on the field as a defense, but this year he was shifted to attack, and has proved hi.i worth. Outside of being a player, " lac " ' was elected to manage this year ' s team, so be- tween the two he has lieen kept very busy. You can always tell when " Mac " is on the field, because every now and then one can hear an Indian whoop, and that is " Mac ' s " signal that he is on the job. When " Afac " leaves in June, M. A. C. will lose a good, clean, sturdy and consistent player. " MAC " McCUTCHEON " TEDDY " GRAY CAPTAIN T. D. GRAY " T. D. " started playing lacrosse in his Freshman year, and succeeded in getting his letter at that time. Since then he has been one of the steadiest players on the team. The good stick work and the quickness which he displayed, led the team to elect him captain in his Senior year by an almost unani- mous vote. In the early spring he called the candi- dates out, and soon succeeded in picking a very well balanced team. Although not being very successful so far this season, we feel that his untiring eflforts will result in putting the per- centage of games won much higher than in preceding years. 199 " BUCH " BUCHWALD " Come on, fellows. Let ' s get in this old lacrosse game. " This is " Buch. " He joined the squad in his Sophomore year, and has an- swered the call for candidates each spring since then. Bigness and swiftness are " Buch ' s " strong points. When he hits, he hits hard. His stick work is good, and he can fill any position on the team. " Buch " answers " the call of the wild " in June, and his team mates are going to lose a very valuable man When he leaves. " BUCK " BUCHWALD " PLUM POINT " CARPENTER In his Sophomore year, weary from eating and sleeping, both of which he is very fond, " Plum Point " decided to take a lacrosse stick in hand and, at least, try to reduce his flesh. " Plum " proved to be a fast man and soon became an artist with the stick. In his first game, he was successful as an attack man, and ever since then " Plum " has been seen out with the candidates when the season started. ' e are sorry to see him leave us this year, and it will take an exceptionally good man to fill his shoes next year. •PLUM " CARPENTER " MADAM " TULL In the spring of 1912, " Madam " took unto himself a lacrosse stick and a smile, and went forth to become the greatest lacrosse player in history. Whether lie has realized his own aspiration or not, we do not know, but we do know that as a defense man of the M. A. C. team he is successful. He is a firm advocate of the policy of hit hard and hit first. This he does, and emerges from the fray juggling the ball in his stick. " Madam " graduates in June, and the team will lose a good, heady lacrosse man. " MADAM " TULL 200 " DEUTCHER " ROHN ' " Deutcher " ' or " Martin " Rohn played his first game this year. Although a candidate in his Junior year, his inexperience would not justify his playing. This year he has proven without doubt that he is one of the fastest and most reliable lacrosse men of the s(|uad. He has a ready smile and a helping hand for team mates and opponents alike. At center he is a shining light and there are few times when the opposing center gets the jump on him. M. A. C. will lose, by graduation, a strong, clean and clever player when " Martin " leaves in lune. " MARTIN " ROHN HERMAN MASSEY i Iassey has been with our team for four years, and hardly enough can be said as to his ability as a lacrosse player. Massey is an attack man of no mean abil- ity, and there is scarcely ever a game in which he does not slip one in the opponent ' s goal. He is fast, clever with the stick, a hard worker, a clean athlete, and when practice begins next year, it will be a difficult task to fill Herman ' s place. HERMAN MASSEY " NICK " CARTER " Nick " made his first appearance on the lacrosse field in the spring of 1914. Although a green man. he immediately made good. His football training has made him one of the best defense men ever seen on our field. Many are the men who will vouch for " Nick ' s " abil- ity to dump them, and do it quickly and neatly. We feel that it will take some time to fill " Nick ' s " place when he leaves this year. 201 " MONTY " MONTELL In lacrosse, as well as in track, " Monty " is a shining light. ' Alonty " made his deljut in lacrosse in his Sophomore year, and proved to he a fast and clever player. His track experience en- abled him to outspeed many an opponent, and due to this fact he was always the mainstay of the team. On account of track practice, " Monty " was unable to join the team at the beginning of the season, but when he is with us, the opposing goal keeper shakes in his shoes when " Alonty " rushes in with the ball. ' MONTY " MONTELL " SONNY " TODD The spring of 1914 found the lacrosse call too urgent to resist, for " Sonny, " a new man in the game, appeared on the scene, but was some time in finding himself. This year, how- ever, he made good, and played in the first three games. In the Alt. Washington game, he sustained an injury to his hand, which will, no doubt, keep him out of the game the re- mainder of the season. We are sorry to lose him, as he would have been one of our strong- est attack men. •SONNY " TODD 202 lI©3r3rSl5!@ I5!sc!©sures Concemls g Biggest Drag Hunter DoPK Close Second Kkllv Lord High Hot-air Artist PiKrson fj Biggest Feet Buch Almost as big Rohn Also ran Pknninc.ton Most Married Man Knodc Does Least Studying Plum Says He Does • Hall Runts BoMMv.

Besides be- ing a good all-round fellow, he is a good tennis player, playing at all times a heady and con- sistent game. Coupled with being one of the team, he is manager, so one may always see " Pete " busy preparing for some match. This year he arranged a fine schedule, al ' l the matches being played on our home grounds. This is the first year in several that we have been able to witness so many matches on our courts with such good teams as he has pitted our men against.

He lives close to a court in Riverdale and it has been rumored that he has played there so often that one night not so very long ago, he strolled out in his sleep and practiced a few strokes. Whether that is true or not, those who have played against him know that he has a strong stroke and sends a ball that is hard to return.

Since the building of the courts they have been constantly utilized and i)robably more students participated in this healthy outdoor exercise than any other one branch of athletic activity here at College. However, it was not until a few years ago that a regular tennis team was organized and during the first two years following its organization but few matches with other colleges were played. Recently, however, such keen interest has been shown by students in this sport that quite a number of intercollegate matches have been scheduled. Last year the tennis team made quite a creditable showing, having won three matches and losing only one. The matches won were those with Catholic University, Gallaudet and Patterson Park Tennis Club : we were defeated by Western Maryland. When the present scholastic year opened the prospects for a winning team were not very bright. Ilgenfritz, last year ' s star player, did not return to school and two other regulars. Gray and Deeley, had graduated with the Class of ' 14. In order to get a line on the ability of some of the new men a tourna- ment was held in the early fall in which there was quite a number of com- petitors. Ere the tournament was over the Manager and Captain had dis- covered that there were several of the new men whose ability as tennis play- ers was far above the average and it was apparent that the loss of three of last years would not be felt so keenly — as first supposed. Consequently, when the team was reorganized this spring it was found that not only was it very well balanced but also that it was probably the strongest aggregation of tennis players that had ever represened M. A. C. The season opened very favorably for us, Dickinson College suffering defeat at our hands by the score of 5-1. The remarkable playing of Amigo, our Cuban tennis expert was easily the feature of the tournament. The remaining games upon the schedule consist of matches with the University of Maryland. April .30; St. John ' s. May 7; Western Maryland; May 13; Catholic University, May 22, and St. John ' s, May 29. In all probability one of the most interesting spring tournaments that this College has ever witnessed will be held this June and it is a surety that the match will be very closely contested. Tennis is becoming one of the favorite sports here at M. A.. C. and it is to be hoped that the teams of the future will be even more successful than those of the past. 209 Sophomore-Freshman Contests Cane Rush HE cane rush between the Freshmen and the Sophomore classes, which was held on Friday afternoon, September 25, was wit- nessed by the entire student body, the faculty, and a large number of visitors from nearby towns, all of whom thoroughly enjoyed the contest. It was the first contest of its kind ever held at M. A. C. and aroused so much enthusiasm on all sides that it will no doubt prove to be an annual event. Professor Richardson was referee and had charge of the contest, assisted by Messrs, Brigham, Darrow, Byrd and Professors Harrison and Bomberger. The cane, which was a stout piece of hickory, was placed in the centre of the field by Professor Richardson and the opposing classes were each drawn up in battle array equidistant from the much longed for cane. The costumes varied ; they consisted of baseball, football and track paraphernalia, together with old discarded clothing such as would withstand the strain of the terrible onslaught. Finally after several false starts the gun was fired and the contest was on. James and Pyle of the Freshmen class were on their toes and were the first to reach the cane, and by superhuman effort succeeded in retaining the same until time was called at the end of the allotted ten minutes. Derrick and Dearstyne did noble work for the losers. The fight raged furiously and when time was called the cane was found to be about six feet over the line and to the credit of the Freshmen class who were proclaimed undisputed victors. The main object of this contest was to create a friendly rivalry between the two classes, and it is hoped that this spirit may continue to exist throug ' hout the subsequent class engagernents. The Freshmen by this victory have succeeded in flying their class flag on the camjjus until by subsequent engagements the Sophs prove their superiority. The Tiag-«2) ' -Waar NOTHER invention of Mr. Darrow ' s which caused no small amount of excitement, was the tug-o ' -war across Paint Branch, between the Freshmen and Sophomores. Previous to this time the Freshmen had defeated the Sophs in the Cane Rush, and so had gained the privilege of flying their flag on the campus. 210 In this tug-o " -war both sides struggled vaHantly for an advantage for several minutes. At first it seemed as though the Sophs would have it all their way but finally the Freshmen got their footholds and proceeded to pull the weary Sophs into the branch. The result of this contest was a surprise to everyone, since it was fully expected that the Sophs would be able to pick out stronger and more experienced men than the Freshies, but it was not so, and the flag of 1918 still waved from the crest of the College campus. The Billiard ToTas-iaama ' iil: HE Sophomores were determined to beat the Freshmen in some line of s])ort. so the next contest between the two classes was a pool tournament. Four matches were scheduled, three singles and one double. The win- ner of the tournament was to be the side that received the highest number of points during the matches and not the side that won the majority of the games, as is generally the case in other sports. The representatives of the Sophs were " Happy " Mess, Harry Smith and " Legs " Medinger. For the Freshman K. C. Posey, Dietrich and Pyle were selected. The first game was between Pyle and Smith, the latter coming out victorious with a score of 103 — 38. The second game proved to be the best of the series. Mess and Posey were the participants of this game, which " Hapi)y " won with a score of 100 — 92. In the third contest between Dietrich and Medinger, the former came out with the honors, the score being 104 — 73. In the doubles Posey and Dietrich defeated Smith and Mess, with the count being 104 — 89. The final count- ing of points showed that the Sophs had 363 against 338 for the Freshmen. The referee of the series was Professor Myron Creese, while the scorers were Kelly and Wright. High runs were made by Smith, who ran 13 and 11 in his game with Pyle. Soon after this tournament the Sophomore flag was seen flying from the top of Science Hall, while the Freshman flag was conspicuous by its absence. 211 Solved S siinj !t 32ng C?3 ENCOURAGING.

We were fortunate that we were not present to respond to roll call when it appeared. However, the chances are two to one that it contained much the same material that is found in this volume. Each Reveille is, and of necessity must be, similar to its predecessors. We have tried to picture, preserve and advance the spirit of M. A. C. as it appeared during the past year. The ver- dict rem ains with you as to whether or not we have succeeded. We feel that we have been most fortunate in the co-opera- tion that we have received from the students, faculty and other interested parties. We would be most ungrateful if we did not express the appreciation that we so deeply feel. We want to assure our friends that every effort that has been made in our behalf is appreciated by us. To the photographers — Hall, Kisliuk and Grace — we are deeply indebted for the pictures that appear in the preceding pages. Our art work has been done largely by students, of which M. E. Rohn had charge. One artist not connected with the insti- tution made contributions to us for which we feel indebted. To each of the deans who so kindly prepared a short sketch of their career we also acknowledge our gratitude. For other literary contributions we thank Messrs. Darrow, Brigham and Prof. Richardson. To all whose support and interest made our task a pleasure we again express our deepest thanks. i 003iiiiitiiiiiiDiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiit3iiiiiiiiiiiiuiiiiiiiiiiiiuiiiiiiiiiiii[03iiiiiiiiiiiic3iiiiiiiiiiiiaiiiiiiiiiiiic]iiiiiiiiiiiit3iiiiiiiiiiii[a0 ♦ P WrigKt A.H.M. ssey T.D.G.
