,,. -M.. 5,
To those who ne'er at nonsense look askance
Who hear but melody, not dissonance,
To those thatlfor the deed accept the will
Nor sternly rule each promise we fultillg
To those who see the wit and not the folly,
Faults view with pity, not with melancholy,
Who read between the lines nor fear to free
What critics can't and callous sneers won't see,
Who merits and not weaknesses descryg
fDefects are easy, virtues hard to spyj
And criticising rather wield the pen,
That praises strength and mildly slashes when
A whilom jest becomes a venomed spleen :
To these who, sympathetic, come between
Our work and er1vy's acid sting of hate,
Who see in it these things-to them be dedicate

Nineteen Hundred Medical Class
HETHER to begin at the beginning and relate our history up to this, our Week of june rgoo, or to
start from this end and wander back, day by day, to the twenty-fifth of September, 1896, is a puz-
zling matter to decide. " Oh, but be logical,', you say, " who ever heard of a Class History that
opened on anything but the fear of frightened Freshman, or that neglected to mention Pompls look
of disdain at his first sight of them P I' But I cannot resist the temptation now While the echo of the orches-
tra's last chord is melting into the ripples of your programs, to direct your gaze toward this varied mosaic
here spread before you, composed, I grant you, of some rather hard bits of marble and some slivers of gold
not sincerely guaranteed to you as fourteen karat, but forming as a Whole such a charming and complete
design that, merely for this reason, you are willing to hear the tedious tale I may tell you. It shall be of
these and also of other highly colored stones that, not for lack of merit-when measured by friendship-were
dropped along the road, raising little clouds of dust about our brogans that we would not brush away.
How different with our predecessors ! If you attended Ninety-nine's Class Day, which let it be hoped
for the sake of your morals and health you did not, you saw in that leering class an immense canvas painted
over with a full-length portrait of one man, the president. When Ninety-eight was exhibited you smiled at
a higgledy-piggledy brightly painted canvas by Boutet de Monvel, an intricate picture of the whole crowd,
for nobody was important. Ninety-seven presented a most interesting study by Tissot on subjects selected
from the Old and the New Testament, but of classes before Ninety -seven we must not speak for we were in
" Prep " then and were not even Freshmen.
just as in comic opera, the slightest suggestion in a musical whisper of a bargain-matinee girl
reminds the actor of the song he has practiced to sing, so the Word " Freshman " determines the course of
this history, which being at last brought to mundane things, must concern itself with our greener days. We
really were Freshmen, "once on a time." What an elastic stretch of the imagination it takes to think of it
now I It eonfounds ns.
Frank Potts had scarcely recovered from the jarring information that he would be obliged to attend
chapel every day, Bert Corbin had just mumbled into his memory the college rule about whistling in the
hallsg "Coxey " Hager was just withdrawing his baby thumb from his cute little baby face with the
query, " What is a Soph'more, anyhow ? " and " The " Brown had completed his canvass for Class President
when the chapel bell-that was before the chapel belle became the co-ed-informed us we were college men.
We instinctively followed Bill Remington who led us to our allotted pews, and then our appetite for gazing
and rubbering overcame us. We heard nothing of Dean Lamberton's voice-it was his habit to conduct chapel
service in whispers-nor even ofthe voice of McCook's father, who was broad-siding all his pulpit eloquence
straight at us because Paul McCook had thrown in his lot with those who " corrupt good mannersf' We
were unconscious of everything until we found ourselves punching and pounding each other, under the
impression that every strange fellow was a Sophomore, while Ninety-nine was doing its best to convince
every one of us that we were Freshmen,
But we swore vengeance, and some other things, and met the 'Sophomores in the Hall Rush several days
afterward. We had received our instructions, both as to the amount of clothing we were supposed to keep
on and as to the rules of the contest from two lengthy juniors, Brinton and Stitzer, and one short junior
whom Bill Remington advertised as his brother. These agitators had us select a class yell Cwhich Conway
brought forth like a lightning calculatorj and promised " to lead us in our victory over the Sophsf' We
tumbled down stairs, our junior friends perched themselves safely on the highest lockers, waiting for Victory
to appear, and our first acquaintance with Ninety-nine formally began. We felt none the better for it,
Can you imagine yourself in a runaway, racing at breakneck speed toward another runaway, clown a
single track lane that admits of not the slightest turn to the right or left? That is the Hall Rush, but of
course Nineteen Hundred won it. Then the juniors descended from their dusty lockers, congratulated them-
selves all around, and exchanged galaxies of compliments on the future discomfort of Ninety-nine, while
Nineteen Hundred might be in College. In the meantime we had collected what remained of our apparel,
gazed around to sce if we had done everything in sight, then stole silently away to dream about dust, and gore,
and future college days.
The college days came crowding on rapidly enough, we saw quiet rivers of them welling up all about
us and we dived into them boldly, just to stir things up. The Freshman banquet helped us considerably in
this way and at the same time scored another fumble for Ninety-nine. In some way that precocious class
found out that we were planning to hold a feed and immediately set about preventing us. Providing
themselves with ropes and carriages, revolvers, blunderbusses and stilettos, sword canes and stalactites, they
succeeded in snatching about ten of the class who had not the slightestintention of going to the banquet,
and with them " Stauf" Oliver, who reached the dinner in time to feed on a plate of ice cream and a cigar-
ette, which he held in his hand but did not smoke. Oliver answered a toast for the amusement of the class,
but otherwise the evening passed off pleasantly-so pleasantly indeed that an unusual number of carriages
had to be ordered. It is rumored on good authority that somebody argued for an hour with a cab horse,
maintaining that the latter was too much under the weather to see him home.
Gaw showed signs of intoxication after his second cigarette, and only with the greatest difficulty was
led to his own doorstep where, resisting our kind offers of assistance, he planted himself firmly against the
door, which being opened from the inside very unexpectedly, sent him sprawling in the hall. Apologies
were in vain to his irate parents. Judging from the wailing and gnashing of teeth that reached us, Gaw
received a spanking for the episode, and never smoked thereafter.
When the midyears were over and Chris Hagen, Lionel Willing, john Rowland and the Cardezas had
left us, in order to devote their entire time to society, We deemed it the opportune moment to have ourselves
photographed, lest none of us would remain in the minds of posterity. Or, it may have been because we
heard that Ninety-nine intended to break up the gathering that we assembled on the Library steps in all sorts
and conditions of clothing, which if photographed would either have been suppressed or used for an adver-
tisement in the Ladies' Homefournal. The Sophs knew that little " Yas " had been selected as our bowlman
and their purpose was to steal him from us, carry him over to the bowl, awaiting him on Woodlarid avenue, and
place him in it as a mark of disgrace and disrespect to Nineteen Hundred. They stole him, but " Yas" was
more than they had dreamed about. Our K' little Iapanese'Butter Ball " could roll himself up like an arma-
dillo and shoot himself out again like a rattlesn ike, then while we were lighting for him, high above his
head, he would be clinging like a leech to the boardwalk while the Sophs were pulling at him from every
button on his coat and eyelet on his shoes. They saw their weakness, and consulting with Dean Lamberton
sent for reinforcements in the form of bluecoats, helmets and brass buttons. The latter being only police-
men, immediately took Dean Lamberton, Pomp and "Black Death" jastrow into custody because they
seemed the most villainous and suspicious looking characters. The three were held on the charge of anarchy
and inciting to riot, but we had them released, for we had no hard feeling against Pomp. Dean Lamberton
survived the disgrace but a short time, Josh Penniman assumed full charge of the Dean's oiiice, emolumeuts
and typewriters thereof, and welcomed us back to College as Sophomores.
just here it is necessary, if a Class History is to be proper and periectly polite, to dilate on the crest-
fallen appearance of us all when as Sophs we returned and found only half of ourselves returning to our-
selves. Yes, we lost a whole list of men who believed that their presence would have kept some respectabil-
ity in the class. The upper circles of Philadelphia society deserted us in the persons of Charlie Page and
Ned Townsend, as did also the upper circle of Reading society in the person of Shearer. At least, he told
us he .was a social somebody there, but we doubted it. However, Sachs, Rabinovitch and Husik remained
to us, so we were not entirely degenerate.
We pulled together somehow and determined to win the Dean's trophy so Bert Corbin could pose with
it in the Senior photograph. W'e played football and won, we played baseball and lost, we rowed on
the river and won, and we ran and jumped on the track, that is, Bill Remington did, and lost. Then
Arthur Jones, after practicing with the All-Germantown and All-Gentlemanly Cricket Teams, saved the
honor of Nineteen Hundred by breaking the tie score in a sedate and sober game of cricket. The Dean's
trophy became ours, and in our mad joy-we promised Jones the Junior Presidency, on the spot.
But there was much more to monkey with in the Sophomore year, and not least of them all was the Sopho-
more Cremation. You have seen a ragged little skye-terrier scudding along the street at full tilt, heading
straight for a stone wall, and like an automobile, suddenly stop with its nose within two inches ofthe wall. You
have read and re-read Washington Irving's tale of the Dutchman who, in order to jump over a one-mile hill,
took a run of two miles that tired him out so completely he was obliged to sit down and rest for a while-
then slowly walk over the hill. You have seen a comedian draw from its scabbard a glistening, danger-
ous knife, and swing it with full force toward his own weakly resisting body, very carefully turning the hilt
of the dagger toward himself, thus preserving his life for to-morrow's continuous performance. Then you have
an idea of the guiding principle of the Class of Nineteen Hundred. It is a most commendable method of
procedure, for by it the bitterness of the catastrophe is removed. The play is all denouement.
The Sophomore Cremation was run on this plan. There was plenty of practicing 5 much deliberation
over the unlucky Prof, any number of songs composedg lots of fireworks and torches boughtg speeches
concocted with the spices of malediction and humor 5 and a host of dressers, makers-up, and musicians on the
spot but-it rained, so we walked over the hill, instead ofjumping over it.
The Freshmen had the audacity and impudence to select a class-pipe, the precocious babes! just
imagine the thrill of horror that jarred our manly spinal cords at the thought of our infants wearing class-
pipes on their countenances! We sent them an ultimatum-a direful, dismal warning that the first, and
every pipe we discovered would be confiscated and held until the youngsters reached maturer years. We
expected a hand-to-hand combat, but they asked us to tone down the resolution. We replied by sending
them a second copy of the ultimatum which frightened them into submission. They never purchased a pipe,
so we missed the hand-to-hand combat, and smoked our own pipes in peace.
By the arrival of the junior Year we began to develop very individual tastes and characteristics. It
was in this year that "Stauf" Oliver, dreaming of his lengthy catalogue of deeds to appear in the CLASS
RECORD, acquired the habit of entering every form of athletics, journalism, and society about college, Bill
Read developed into a politician 9 Loeb began to smoke bad pipes, and, hearing a singing in his head, would
mistake it for the whisperings of the Poetic Muse, and accordingly send the results to The Red and Blueg
Warren and Hoover joined the Architectural Inquisition that, as a weekly diversion, dipped Hilfebeitel and
"Tommy " in the water trough g while Eddie Fairchild painted on the wall the record of dippings, under
the motto :
" Rubber thy necke and contemplate
Of all fresh menne ye common fate."
Also, in this year, Ed Rich broke all previous records in cutting classes by going over his limit three times,
being so addicted to this mania that in the Senior Year some of the Profs didn't recognize him when he came
up for examination g Bill Grayson began his daily lectures on the virtues of Brooklyn, the Camden of New
York City 5 Charlie Upson started to act the Upson, and Cregar continued to 3 Owen Sypherd dropped in on
us from Delaware with a chronic peach-crop dialect 5 and "jack " Fager was actually heard to say something
-some maintain that he uttered four words, others, that there were only three.
These, I acknowledge, were trivial happenings. There was one that eclipsed them all and showed
that Nineteen Hundred really could " jump over the hill,', if it had a mind to. In this Junior Year our crew
were the college champions. " Coxey " Hager with his oarsmen, Henry, Close, Howell, Read, Corbin,
Evans, Patterson, and Kintzing, pulled the Nineteen Hundred boat past all the others and we shook hands
with Victory so hard that she has kept her right arm in a sling ever since.
At the Banquet, Arthur Jones rose with tears in his eyes-that was after the punch had been served-
and suggested that, as a joke, Gaw be appointed Toast-Master. Then the feed began to assume a risible,
loquacious and abandoned air. Kellain and Folz transferred all the water from the table to each otheris shirt
fronts and Ralph grew rippingly mad, for he had intended to wear the shirt all the rest of the week. john
Conway furnished the assemblage with an Irish Bull that boosted him into popular favor and the Senior
The Junior Oratorical Contest must not be overlooked for it was more sternly contested than ony other
class event. Stern acted as the Committee, Stern chose thejudges, and Stern came very near being the only
contestant. The Stern Judges remarked that small interest had been shown in the competition, so awarded
no first prize, but gave Stern the second.
Nineteen Hundred has always possessed a mania for resolutions and petitions. No Christmas Holiday
has passed without our petitioning the Dean for one more day, three more hours, and iifty-eightmore minutes.
As for resolutions, it is needless to recount them. Wlien " Al l' Henry was dropped by Newt old, we passed
a resolution in language much stronger than was fitting and sent the Faculty a petition in language much
milder than fitting. It was our way-a grand explosion that soon spends itself but which leaves its echo
ringing in the memory.
There was still another event of the Junior Year that was by no means left unfinished. It was the
election ofjohn Conway for Senior President. Other classes may boast of their politics, of " the push " and
" the pull," of the machine and the independents, or of the combinations and the neutrals-Nineteen Hun-
dred's election of a Senior President outclasses them all. After a month full of canvasses, caucuses and
booms, John Conway was elected unanimously without a whisper of opposition. We have been shaking hands
with ourselves over it, ever since.
Our Senior days were the happiest of all, but there were scattered notes of sadness that changed some
of the brighter strains into the serious and melancholy minors. A
" Lo ! some we loved, the loveliest and best
That Time and Fate of all their Vintage prest,
Have drunk their Cup a Round or two before,
And one by one crept silently to Rest."
Death has taken but Two from us. Both Lawrence Mearns and Allen Rogers Warnick, though quiet
fellows, as we were pleased to call them, were sincere friends, and both were conscientious workers who " did
not their alms before men.'l We pray that " their reward is in Heaven."
john Conway began to hold levees or getting up ceremonies after the fashion of the Ancien Regime.
He had read and admired Louis Quatorze and proceeded to imitate him. We would knock at his dormitory
room, knock again, and again, and then hear from an almost unhearable distance a voice murmuring, " Come
in." By that we knew john wasn't up yet and was waiting for the rising ceremonies. We would all troop
in, by order of political preference and seat ourselves in the living-room, patiently waiting until john would
finally appear clad, like the saints above, in a robe of white. From that stage until the most august derby
was placed a-tilt on his shining brow we would be accorded an audience in some such fashion as this :
"john, why don't you take to-night off? You're developing into a grind of the worst type. Here's
Philadelphia overflowing with pretty girls, and here's john Conway digging every single night in the week."
" Um-m-mb d' d'bum-md grinds and girls." '
" Cheer up! john. Here's news from the bourgeoisie. Miiller would like the Baseball Committee,
Potts wants the Pool Tournament, and McKee says he'll fork anything comes his way."
K' Um-m-mb l'um-m-md u'd Committees."
" Why john, you-" but his appetite would choke his speech and he'd be off for the hash-house.
It was not long ago that we listened and asked every day for john, who even on this last lap of the
Senior Year came very near being an angel, of one kind or another. But Iohn was always a conscientious
sort of a fellow. He concluded it would be decidedly unfair to deprive the Physician of his fee, so he recov-
ered. In the meantime Bill Read mismanaged the class. He had enough to keep him awake of nights.
As might be expected, things assumed a little more serious light when seen through Senior's spectacles
-especially the intellectual black-rimmed species that Oliver and Hoover affected. Even Craven caught the
contagion and bought a pair of be-jewelled specs of some street fakir but he found them in the way when he
wanted to smile, so he discarded them. It is hard to tell why everyone grew so grouchy but certain it is that
the Senior Banquet even descended to the level of respectability. The Profs were there and one member of
the class feared lest they would remain to hear the toasts. He had one entitled " a Rag, a Bone, and a Hank
Speaking of the co-eds, or rather intimating the existence of co-eds, Charlie Upson became very
much interested in the subject during his last year in college. We all had opinions on the question. A
committee was appointed to deliberate the matter, which they did. That was all.
The whole class discussed and cussed the Co-eds at its Smoker-an event that most assuredly must not
pass without mention. We gathered under the dark rafters of the Musical Clubs' Room and after close
converse With " my Lady Nicotine," decided First, that Nineteen Hundred was the only class that ever hap-
pened, Second, that Co-eds were not of the Nineteen Hundred fold but were only fit .or K' the Ninety and
Nine, " Therefore, that the Co-eds in Bennett's Barn would have to be serenaded. With this most creditable
resolve the Smoker adjourned to appear in the next rnorning's papers. That night, regardless of Bill
RS1DiHgtOH,S persuasive voice we awoke the Co-eds and stood on the pavement with raised umbrellas singing
" Good-bye, ladies, you're going to leave us now." I wish the day were long enough to tell you all.
There is much besides that cannot be told, without the sound of tiattery. Buckvvalter in 1898, and
Kintzing in 1899 captained the crews that made Pennsylvania champion in the college rowing-world. Without
Grant or Remington, Pennsylvania could not have won her championship in track athletics. In Nate Folwell,
Nineteen Hundred gave the football team an end who made doubly sure Pennsylvania's football victories of
1898. In a large measure through Arthur Jones was Pennsylvania's prestige in cricket established. To
Riddle is much honor due for Pennsylvania's defeat of Michigan in debate. Nor does the list end here. By
one or another of us have all the stops been sounded in the great organ of college life.
As the time of parting came closer and closer upon us, we drew nearer and nearer to each other in our
friendship. Soon came the spring days that were to be our last in college associations g days that brought
both transparent and opaque skies, days when the dying, but glowing hearth sparks from the hoarsely
Whispering ire-logs contrasted feebly with the stronger sunlight g days when even the spring sun could not
harden the yielding campus-paths as we trod them all over with footprints, heel-deep-firm serious steps
with here and there the mark of a lingering or a turning aside among the trees or shady nooks away from the
voice of the pedagogue. just so serious we became. But we re-read Omar and accepted the jersey accents
of Ed Rich in "Aw, fergit it I " We came to a conclusion that remains with us to-day: Although " finis "
has to be inscribed with most elaborate ornamentation at the end of so many bright pages of our life, the
future volumes shall be replete with even more valuable leaves, though not so brightly and ideally colored.

And the friends we made, and men we knew,
Add themselves to the changing view,
And then depart again.
And the faces unchanged, from days long past
Bring to our minds, from Brst to last,
Some happiness or pain.
We struggle again as we did of old,
VJe 'right our battles, so manifold,
As oft we did before,
High as the very heavens we fling
The songs that n1ernory's wont to bring
Of the days of neverrnoreq
Thus with the joys of college life,
Our nJernory's vaults are richly rife.
We laugh and sing for joy.
But quick as a Hash, the ha-zy light
Changes itself into darkest night,
Our pleasure to destroy.
The deepest shadows that night can show,
Lower about us, and will not go,
However far we Hy.
Then all the sorrow and all the pain
That a college life can hold, rernain,
And ever hover nigh.
The chains, that the college binds around
Our neck and hands, in the darkness sound.
We groan in agony.
Oh, chains so strong, if we could sever,
These collegegwalls we'cl leave forever
To feel that we were free.
With the very strength of our souls, we strain
To snap the links of that mighty chain,
That naught can ever break 5
And the weary months pass us, leaving still,
Only a few days yet to fill,
Before our leave we take.
Then parting comes, as all things must,
Our lives, which the college has held in trust,
Are Hnally our own:
No more the heavy hand shall bind,
We cast one lingering look behind,
And stand henceforth alone.
So then in our dream, we know we are free,
And our souls are Ellled with ecstasy,
We breathe anew at last.
But the chain we wore so many years,
Still wrapt around our heart appears,
To hold us to the past.
And lo! as we sigh, the iron of old,
Turns into links of purest gold,
With precious stones adorned,
Whatever we've learned, whatever we know,
We feel that all to that bond we owe,
However much we scorned.
There lies the store with which we meet the world,
A magic spring, through which our bolts are hurled
In distant lands and seas,
Each gem a lamp of brightest light, to show
The paths that lead to regions where there grow
Flowers that always please.
So we have entered, in the world of men,
The subject oft retold by tongue and pen,
And poetls humble art,
In this great, bustling, swarming hive, there lies
The gift we all would gain, the prize
For which We play our part.
We stand a moment with this single thought,
Where our first battles can the best be fought,
And whether near or far?
Then with the light of purposes intent,
Toward different lands our steps are bent,
Each following his star.
Some to the East depart, in hopes of fame,
The jewels they carry set the world aiiame,
In distant Eastern climesg
The chains that still are round them, bind anew
What ages long decay had worn in two,
In earliest of times.
The rising sun smiles kindly on their work,
Chasing the shadows when they chance to lurk
W'here light alone should be.
Men honor them for what they seek to do,
And young and old bow low to greet the new
That is so fair to see.
Life's battles nobly Won mean much to them.
Not if they could, men's praises would they stem
That ever onward flow.
But far away their Alma Mater rears
Another class, that in the East appears,
To urge them horneward go.
Their hearts had scarcely needed urging,
Instinctively toward home were surging,
Long, long before they knew.
So 'drmly buckling on their sandals rare,
Back quickly home do they repair,
To Alma Mater true.
Then at her feet, they lay the prize they've Won,
And rest from battles that at last are done.
. No more need they to War.
They clasp the hands of men Who from the West
And North and South had journeyed home to rest,
To leave it never more.
So in the fading light of day, again,
We'll meet, to sing the glad refrain,
Of early college days.
Then heart to heart, and with a clasp that's true,
The bonds that once were severed, We'l1 renew
And sing our favorite lays.
Oh, Alma Mater, if in thee We find
A mother who is truly kind
And under thee a home,
Why need the cares of life aifright us?
Thy broad, protecting Wings can right us,
However far We roam.

E it known that the Rajah of Maharatpan is one of that tribe of esoteric East Indians who practice the
' mystic arts, dabble in the occult sciencesf and make mere playthings of the supernatural and weird g
in short, a dilettante in the spectral and spiritual. Further be it known, that he had recently arrived
from his native land of India, had formed a friendship with a dear friend of mine, and had been
confided in by the latter and told of the quagrnire of troubles into which I threatened to sink.
For when about three months ago, at a time, as Mr. Allison Gaw would put it, " when winter held
the land in icy grasp," I awoke from the state of coma into which the Senior year throws one and determined
to write this Prophecy, I speedily encountered the difficulties that furrow the browand canon the face. For
behold, when I sedulously ate green cheese in the hope that I could follow a custom wrinkled, hallowed- and
motheaten with age, namely, to fall into that unholy sleep which conjures up the future phantorns of your
classmates, I found only the verihcation of that old adage that, " Digestion is the better part of pallor,"
sleep I could not. .
I dined on Welsh rarebit and beer in astronomical observatories in the wild hopes of my ability, in
the transports of nightmare, to imagine that I was in some other planet and could view the petty bickerings
and iiickerings of this terrestrial sphere from starry heights, but the sidereal path was not to be mine.
No pictures ever came to life in the room where I was sitting, I had consulted magicians and clair-
voyants for news of the future unavailingly, and in despair I was resolved to throw myself upon base
imaginings, hgments of my own brain, when the Rajah came to my rescue.
" Send him to me," he said to my friend.
I went. Now it is needless to describe our conversation, my moving recital of my non-somnambulistic
nature, the urgency of the prophecy, his interested attention and sympathetic commentsng suffice it to say
that the knowledge soon penetrated my inner consciousness that the man who stood before me was no mere
necromancer, and I quickly realized that he had discovered the ignis-fatuus of philosophers, that sister to
the illusory philosopher's stone, namely, the separation of the soul, or what the Rajah was pleased to term
the Astral body, from our physical self or mere material being.
Also I learned that the Rajah could project this Astral body into the future, and though it were
invisible and intangible, nothing was invisible or impenetrable to it, like the Limping Devil of Le Sage it
could stand on the house tops and perceive all that went on in the dwellings below. In short, I believe the
Rajah had discovered the Fourth Dimension and, what was more salient, he offered to project me then and
there so that I could prophesy.
A few minutes later I was staring intently into his eyes, then a quick sharp succession ofjerks-and
I was disembodied.
I am not sure, but I am of the opinion that it was -the year 1920 or thereabouts. No wires met my
gaze in my flight, wireless telegraphy obtained, and automobiles thronged the streets of Philadelphia, which,
however, soon receded from my gaze and I beheld below me a vast expanse of shimmering ocean, the Pacihc,
as deep and true and noble as the Class of Nineteen Hundred. An island soon iioated into view, an island
which lay in emerald beauty, where grew great lilies and bamboo and mulberry bushes, where the geisha
and hari-kari and the silk-worm all iiourished, and where the almond-eyed denizens all lived a life of japan-
ease, Irresistibly I wasldrawn toward a certain city and in that city to one certain house, a neat, tidy little
house of bamboo and reed, " the house of our great oflicialf' I heard a passerby explain to his companion.
Within was a cozy scene of domesticity. At one side of the living room sat Yassie, at the other Yas-
kawa San, and little Yas was saying as he propped his feet on a bamboo stool, " You mustn't be too particular
in the house, my dear, if you had gone through the University of Pennsylvania you would learn to ignore
dust on the benches." And he nodded at a cabinet photograph of Billie Read on the mantel opposite. Mrs.
Yaskawa sighed and took consolation by spanking a little Yaskawa who was running about. I came to a
quick conclusion that a mere matter of environment doesn't count, women are pretty much the same the
world over, and evaporated through the door.
The crying of the infant still rang in my ears as I crossed the Pacific again, nor did it cease until it
seemed to change to a loud raucous shout and I saw that I was near the Grave of Man, Camden, Chome of
Hunter, the Quiet, and Bill Read, the Lankyb, in fact, that I was in Haddonfield and that the strident voice
proceeded from a flashily dressed little man ensconced in a gaudy multicolored circus chariot, behind which
rose, mushroom-like, a bloated circus tent. " Come in and get your money's worth," he was shouting,
"remember you buy your tickets here for Kellam's Colossal Caravan." And sure enough it was Ralph
Newton. In his oliice, the :aforesaid wagon, were posted up the following rules for the guidance of purchasers:
I. Count your change. We are not responsible for Him-Ham.
2. Don't throw peanut shells on the tent floor unless you have a pull with Potts. CPull always had
been the keynote of Ralph's life.j
3. Don't give the cashier Canadian dimes or Bryan dollars. Bite the money we return and ascertain
if it's good before leaving the window.
4. Don't annoy the animals. This also includes Fisher.
5. If you don't get your moneyls worth don't blame the circus, it is your inability to appreciate it.
All this promised to be interesting and I passed inside. An oliicer, whom, when he ripped out a
string of oaths of varied and assorted colors, I immediately knew to be Potts, was hustling the people along
in no gentle manner and among the protesting open-mouthed proletariat I saw Sachs, Frescoln, Gomborow
and Rabinovitch. On the platform I beheld Ethelbert Augustus Corbin, the idol of the Co-eds, and the
strong man of the show, exhibiting to his own intensest satisfaction his wonderful chest and upper arm devel-
opment, also to the great delight of the man behind the pink-lemonade counter whom, had he not gone
through a facial gymnastic smile, I would have feared to recognize as Benjamin West Frazier, once so lordly,
now a vender of double jointed peanuts. But what fulfilled my most confident expectations was to espy
among the clowns Wallace Fisher, who, with a little chessboard on his back and a pool cue in his hand was
screwing up his painted face, getting oif his cheap impertinences and clap-trap witticisms, and capering about
to the ininite delight ofthe children, just as in days of yore.
In the sideshow sat Bob Horner billed as H The Quietest Man on Earth. Has not Spoken for Twenty
Years," and on the centre of the stage Ninian Caldwell Qcalled well Ninianj, Cregar was essaying the juve-
nile part in a little show, though he had " the semblance of age yet remaining, in all things a childf' I
quitted the show not realizing that a still sadder sight was soon to greet my eyes, Addie Fouse, on whom
I had based hopes of a happy bachelorhood, Addie Irwee Fouse gently rocking a little Fouselet, far up in a
four-flight Hat. I-Ie was talkingin that deep, resonant, rainbow voice of his to Bill Grayson who, as agent of
the Brooklyn Consolidated Tombstone Company, had run in, or rather climbed in, to get his insurance
renewed from Addie. "Yes,'l sighed the latter, " I think that to the old proverb, 'Variety is the spice of
life,' might be added the scholium, ' Satiety is the price of wife? " And he went on sadly rocking. I left
the touching scene, Dr. Johnson's " Triumph of hope over experience," verihed.
In front of the house an organ grinder had stopped and was trying to coax filthy lucre into the hands
of Seipt Cwho was collecting the penniesj, by dispersing eternal dissonances, compressed to disturb posterity,
from a barrel organ. it was Sypherd, and as I watched him an unfortunate mishap befell him, he was collided
with by an automobile of a type I had never seen before, and invented by Messrs. McKee and Percival, who
with Hill, dressed in full coachmanis regalia and running it, were its occupants. It was really a comical
sight, but from behind me came a laugh that was spine chilling. p
It came as I suspected from Jim Craven, dramatic critic of the Ecmzamzkf, a newspaper run by
Biddle Saul, who was at Craven's side. " Got your introduction written up ?" asks Saul. " No," says
Craven, " but I have three minutes time to do it in now, tht's ample." And he sat down on the curb,
tucked his feet under him, and dashed off the introduction to Saul's new book on socialism as follows:
"Socialism, the creed of the theorist and the dreamer, but also the ideal of men blameless of life, pure and
white as the snow, for even the snow is socialistic, and an equalizer of conditions, does it not lie on the
houses of the rich and poor alike l And did it not do this before the French revolution ! "
"Do you know," said Craven, " I have a scheme for the paper. Offer a prize to any one who can
extract the meaning of this poem by Gaw which I have just culled from his new book, 'Purple Poems of
Purpose! It is called 1
" ' THE EBULLITION on MARTYRDONI.
" ' Three pendulous trees in plethoric grandeur gray,
Skeleton-limbed, low-bowed with coruscating crystal,
Ponderously aged, senescent in decay
Supine 'neath December's stress, still hoping for the May.,
Gaw always was as full of humor as a table of statistics. But come on, Saul, I want to get to the office
and write up a criticism of OliVer's acting." And they passed on into the years,
So Oliver had deserted Blackstone for Garrick. I determined to see him, and at the moment I entered
his house a strange thing happened, for he was taking his life in his hands. Yes he began to read the auto-
biography he had written under his name' in this class record of Nineteen Hundred as chairman of the
individual record committee, and as he read a smile of delight slowly crept over his countenance, and no
wonder, for, according to that resume of his merits, he appeared
" A man so various that he seemed to be
Not one, but all mankind's epitome."
Not very far from Oliver's house I heard alittle man who wore golf stockings, which were like Niagara,
always coming down, and who had a voice like a peacock, say to Deacon Karcher, " Yes, that last satire on my
work was entirely too severe." Then Easy Davis hurried onto his sewing circle, while the Deacon plodded
off to the office of the " Tinkering Tincupf' where his partner, Ed Rich, was grinding out jokes for their
comic CU wealfbf. 'L I-Iovv are the jokes coming along ? U asked Dan, " I tell you it's a serious thing, this
joke making," answered Ed, "and it comes hard. I have stated that, as the new public buildings that
Willing and Schenk are putting up have allowed an advertisement of I-Iockenberry's Cocoa to be placed on
them, they look a bit rococo, and I have here a love story from John Conway which I think we might run in
the curiously comic column. You will have to extract a few drawings from jugend to fill up." The little
Tincup office, as pretty as a prison,-that is everything was in keeping,-faded from view, and I was shortly
gazing at what seemed to be a missionary's hut on the shores of Africa.
Over it was a flag, and on that flag was printed the single cabalistic word " Lockport." And then a
piteously humorous sight met my eyes. In a circle on the sand sat half a dozen savages, smoking tobacco as
vile as Nelson ever dared to put in that corn-cob pipe of his, listening appreciatively to a small man in a
stove-pipe hat who was lecturing them. It was Charlie Upson, still fresh as a two-year old Cthat is a two-
year old eggb who, unable to throw off the subtle spell of the Dean's encomium on his missionary work at
Pennsylvania, had emigrated to Africa as spiritual saviour of the savages. After the speech the chief savage,
who was a whole host in himself, being a cannibal, returned a few words of gratitude: then anthropophagi
and missionary both deserted my vision and I was peering at a scene on Chestnut street which looked like
an illustration from " Alice in Wonderland."
A very tall man and a very small man were coming down the street hand in hand. Each bore a sign,
but fantastic fate, or some small urchin, had very evidently played them a malicious trick, for little Mendyls
sign bore the strange device, "I take jupiter Tarj' while that of Billy Read, better known as La Belle
Fatima, said K' I don't.', Mendy was still as tiny as ever and so indulged in the same small talk, and Billy
Read had continued so tall that people could only speak highly of him. Another man was hurrying down
the street behind them glaring intently at the pavement as though he had lost something, but it was evidently
Mendy he was looking for as Liepsner drew a breath of relief when he saw the latter. From I-Iarry's con-
versation I gathered that he and Muller ran a restaurant and beer garden next to the oiiice of Hager 8:
Taylor CChemical Engineersl and, both as generous as ever, also ran a free lunch counter at which ate daily
Mendy and Billy, Julius Stern, now a starving political economist, special policeman Ehlers, Charlie
Patterson, detective, and Balentine, the biologist.
When I entered the home of the Universal Congress of Debaters in West Philadelphia, I was in doubt
as to how large my acquaintanceship there might be, but I soon spied Folz, now assistant district attorney,
who, when he was not interrupting on a debatable point, was as ever taking copious notes. So too was
Easton, professor of Comparative Philology at the University of Pennsylvania. The University, might not
some of my quondam colleagues be found here? I determined to visit the dear old building again and was
speedily in the hall covered with the dust of ages. All looked strangely familiar, though to my horror, on
close inspection of the students, I noted that every third boy was a girl, so had co-education insidiously crept
in " like a thief in the nightf,
An old man of some ninety-five years sat in a large chair in the basement, and at once I knew him to
be the imperishable Pomp, for from his mouth issued a rambling but biting diatribe on Freshmen. But it
was in the Dean's office that I received a surprise. For, behind that mystic maze of wire and glass, so far
removed from nature's common mass, sat a truly mighty grain of wisdom, Rice. The book which he had
been reading and which he now closed with a bang, was a pretentious affair by Easy Davis, "On the Esthetics
of Plato: a Discriminating Analysis of the Inner-Sub-Consciousness as evolved by a careful Study of the
Applied Theorems of Hegel and Kant: also a Discourse on the Concatenation of Moral Virtues arising from
an Acceptance of the Postulations of Shopenhauerfl
" How like Davis," I thought, and followed the Dean into the chapel. It was a gala day, for the
Right Reverend William Procter Remington, Archbishop of Manayunk, was to speak. The chapel was lit
by the new Conway light, but expectancy lit every face. The Right Reverend ascended the rostrumg a long
tear-compelling wail, and then that voice like the night wind sighing through the trees, the only voice that
had ever moved Pomp to lachrymal outbursts, launched itself on a pleading exordium.
The Jeremiad was to the effect that " if your neighbor finds a delight in mauling your right cheek
turn also to him your left," and as I listened I heard a voice near me say, " Yes, an' den smash him." This
sacrilegious advice proceeded from the organ pumper and janitor. For a moment I failed to recognize him,
but a few seconds perusal of that persimmon mouth and disheveled shock-head revealed the champion light-
weight talker Michener. " Now do be quiet, Michenerf' came a peevish whine from Gaw at the organ. Over
the organ hung a placard, " Don't throw anything at the organist. He's doing his bestf' Michener subsided
and as he did so did I, and found myself out on the street where a crowd attracted my attention. It had two
nuclei, one was fakir Evans, who was selling an evil-looking chemical compound of his own manufacture
which removed any stain fand incidentally the color? from your clothes. A man stepped up and culled a box
from the pile, it was Cullen.
The other centre of attraction was a stump speaker, Senator Arthur Jones, hammering words into a
gap of time. " Yesf, he was saying, " I ran for Congress on an honest platform and I will run again."
"Remember this is Philadelphia and moderate your speed," came a voice from the crowd that sounded
singularly like that of the point-lace wit George Snyder. " I despise politics, I disdain politics, and I am
above party," continued Arthur. " And below purity." again came the voice. " I declare no allegiance, I
stand on the Hag." And I remained long enough to hear the voice demand, " Isn't that a precarious foot-
ingg arn't you afraid you will fall ? " Poor Arthur, at best a stucco orator, he always would forget that you
can't invite criticism and resl ect regrets.
As I entered McKinney Hall nearby I was minded that you can prepare a man for the Holy Estate
and have him turn out a mere owner of real estate. The hall was the home of the lower nine, who had formed
a social swagger club with VVilson and Perkins, who had at last achieved high society, as president and vice-
president, and jack Fager, man of many loves, secretary. A little ahfair was going on, and a man who
carried things with a high hand in the grill room was waiter Hahn.
I left and proceeded slowly toward Franklin Field where Billie Brendlinger, the head coach, was
instructing a handful of hopefuls. Billie was showing how a particularly clever tackle could be made, but
there is many a cowslip 'twixt the buttercup and the tulip. Billy failed to reach his man and gave an inspir-
ing illustration of how that same tackle could be missed. Passing the Hash House, on which some verdant
Freshman had tacked up a card that announced, " Be fastidious and you will be hungry," a bill board which
stood near it caught my eye. It advertised in glowing terms the wonderful Tinwright and I hastened off to
the matinee and saw dance the little goddess of the twinkling feet who had so sturdily fought the Co-eds
back in 19oo. That same sweetly thrown kiss, that same daintily waved kerchief, that same unwavering
smile. I leaned back in my parquet chair in full enjoyment, but in truth I felt drowsy. The stage blurred,
shifted, then grew large and luminous, the chair on which I sat rocked, then trembled, and jerked, yes it
almost jumped, but I held on tightlyg I gasped sharply for I seemed to be making a sudden leap from it, then
I looked up and the Rajah bent over me, complacent and smiling.
" Well, are you glad you took your astral trip ? " he asked. '
" Yes," I said, " I'm very glad L and very sorry."

Rosy the fancy of the infant world
That peopled mossy dell and gnarled tree
And rivulet, rippling melodiously
Its silvery music through the woodland shade,
Each with its own bright spirit. Then enpearled
In every sounding shell on Ocean's shore,
A guardian fay softly the burden bore,
Murmuring sweet secrets of a mystic lore
Into the listener's ear. In sylvan glade
Under the di1n light of the crescent moon
Titania rested on a flowery throne
W'hile through the air full many a vagrant tune
Of subtle sweetnesss, elhn-piper blown
Marked the light tripping of the fairy feet
That, wreathing merry circles, nimbly beat
The forest greensward with their dainty shoon.
Each grassy knoll was teeming o'er with life,
The busy gnomes their treasure guarded well
From mortal hands as ancient legends tell,
And when arose the elemental strife
In mid-air, when the threatening storm-clouds
Black over field and meadow, hill and plain,
Wlien crashed the heavy thunder, beat the rain
And fiery bolts shot through the sullen sky,
Great Thor it was who tossed his ruddy mane
Rolled hisswift chariot o'er the tree-tops high
Wliile fearful men in darkling Caverns cowered,
Far from the angry god's deep searching eye. '
And then-the darkness vanished-in the dome
Of Heaven the rainbow spreads its rosy hue
And upward, downward, under, over, through

The tinted arch, fair radiant spirits roam,
Weaving a magic web of colors bright,
Filling all space with the soft roseate light,
Ethereal drapery for their airy home.
Those were the days of old, when satyr played
With faun and dryad through Hellenic wood,
When Oread swift pursued the mountain maid
And naiad slyly peeped in laughing mood
Out from her rill, half amorous, half afraid,
At burly Pan, piping his syrinx rude.
No more the fairy trips it on the green,
No longer elf and gnome their treasure guard,
No more o'er every cottage door is seen
Thor's giant hammer, men have learnt to ward

The woods are silent now: if aught they bring
To us of message august, solemn, grand
In its simplicity, 'tis of the mighty King
Who holds the seas in the hollow of His hand,
Whose word alone controls the planets' swing
And in Whose mind the universe was planned.
All message else that plants or flowers bear
To men, must come from man himself, the rose
Whispers of love, for that fond lovers Wear
The flower that years agone as theirs they chose
The yew and cypress speak 'of death, for these

" Bear our Remembrance, Ivy l "-that alone.
Remembrance of four happy, flying years
Passed in the shadow of these sacred walls,
Remembrance of our friendship that endears
Us each to each and to these ivied halls
Remembrance of our varying smiles and tears-
Of hopes fulfilled, sometimes, alas I of falls.
'Tis no new message for the curling vine.
In days of old, at the Nemean game
When Greece assembled at Zeus' mighty shrine,
Still were its leaves the emblem of fair fame,
The meed of victory, the holy sign
Of well-won conquest and an honored name.
For see, the games are on ! The racers lieet
From fair Thessalian vales, Euboea's strand,
Argos, Ionia, Elis, and a band
Of sturdy Phocians emulously meet,
Each striving for the ivy garland sweet,
Desired of all within the Grecian land.
The word goes forth, along the course they speed,
Shoulder to shoulder, agile, lithe and strong.
A moment so,-then from the expectant throng
Rings out a cry, for two are in the lead,
One Sparta's child, mighty in Hellas' need,
And one from the Lesbian isle of tuneful song.

" Cn, on, thou Spartan ! thine the victory I "-
" On, Lesbian ! there before thee rests the
prize ! "-
Thus from the viewing multitudes arise
Shout upon shout. "Nay, faster, Lesbiang see.
The Spartan gains E "-And breathless, anxiously,
Ten thousand watch the strife with eager eyes.
And, lo l deep-panting as they near the goal
The rivals leap along the level ground
For twenty paces,--ten,-then with a bound
The Lesbian first vaults past the wreathed pole,
While thundering acclamations round him roll
And " Hail the victor I" from the throngs resound.
NVhat says the hoary elder as he lays
H The ivy chaplet round the youthful brow?
" Hail, Lesbian ! Happiest of mortals thou l
Thy memory shall go down through all the days,
Immortal poets sing thy deathless praise.
Go, at the shrine of Zeus in homage bow."
The Lesbian's leafy garland signifies
Remembrance and a fame that never dies.
Ours, a more humble tribute, but declares
Our loving memory of thy fostering cares,
O Alma Mater ! And to be worthy thee
Thy august name and ancient dignity,
May we learn lessons of the creeping vine,
Where faith and love and ardent hope combine.
For as the ivy's root is buried deep,
So may thy loving, loyal children keep
As firmly grounded in a purpose pure,
As twine the ivy tendrils round each stone,
So may we cling to thee, by whom alone
Our purposes were moulded to endureg
As mounts the ivy ever high and higher,
So may we, too, right loftily aspire
Ending our purpose Hxed in victory sure.
Thus like the ivy leaflet, one in three,
Triple our lesson in its trinity,
This the unriddling of its mystery.
And, Alma Mater, while dawr1's pearly white
Illumes thy towers with streaks of pallid light
Which slowly change to hars of living gold,
While pours the yellow glare of midday down
On hall and campus, river and busy town,
With never a iieecy cloud o'er Heaven rolled,
While in the west the setting sun bends low,
Suffusing all with a rich crimson glow
Until night's gloomy shades the world enfold,
Long mayist thou stand, clad in thy leafy green,
Long may thy rising turrets yet be seen,
Pointing us upward as in days of old I ,

4 X S I-IEN the Faculty lirst met the Class of 1900 Arts, they immedi-
F ately decided that it contained a large portion of unusual men
li -a conclusion which time has merely served to strengthen.
l 1 For they have repeatedly informed us since that rgoo is the most brilliant
E p class Old Penn ever knew, and the Arts ! oh, well, the Arts were Za frame
l - i de Za czffme of the class. And well the Faculty might be impressed, for
verily there were great men in our ranks. There was Davis, whose
great specialty has always been his private interviews with the Faculty
at the close of every hour-an excellent opportunity to manifest his-
Cwhat shall we call it Pj-to the men who gave exams and marks. And
U Gaw, the man who always insisted on giving his instructors points,-a
noble mission, which has greatly elevated the intellectual tone of the
University. In our midst was a man from Canada, slow of speech but swift of foot, one Alex Grant, destined
to Win many races for Penn in the four years of his sojourn here.
Stanley Folz came to us determined to be first in S07lZ6'fhZ'7Zg', so he was the nrst man to join Philo.
Folz has been an eminent success Cafter his own mannerj, but this he attributes to evenings judiciously
employed in calling upon the powers that be, and in the citation of authorities in quiz papers, any old
reference serving, so long as it seemed plausible. This method has been copyrighted, but he expects to
co-operate with Davis in placing a work on " Leg-Pulling " before the public very shortly. We recommend
it as worthy of the serious attention of any ambitious Freshman. Y
A man named Kellam, who thought himself a politician and man ot' the world, came up from the wilds
of Jersey to show us how to run things. while the Central High School of Philadelphia sent us the 'fbov
wonder 'l Tryon, to serve as a check upon all naughtiness. Then we had Charley Upson, the eminent authority
on Lockport, N. Y., and co-education, and jones, the man with a dislike for religious services Qaida Professor
Easton's chapel-rollj. "Jim " Riddle, who had arrived from the " wild and woolly West " the year before
and had become partially civilized, came out and took courses in public speaking fthe Faculty hred Hynson
after that yearj, and played in the University Band, preparing his lungs for the 'Varsity Debate Teams.
" Billy " Remington did not want to be evil, so he joined the Y. M. C. A. when the Mask and Wig had
gotten through with him as a girl reporter. He became so imbued with the swift spirit of the latter
organization that he joined the track team, where he has remained ever since. Potts, the irrepressible, and
Rice, the grave, served to counteract one another, while " Billy " Read came as the standard-bearer of the
Camden contingent. Later we were joined by Fisher, the immortal, who, failing to find a suflicient scope for
his attainments in the Wharton School, apostated to the Arts. Owen Cmorel Sypherd, the Wilmington
pedagogue, came to see if there was anything he did not know, and McClellan joined us forthe sake of
breaking the record of " D's." Other great lights there were Cand they are not out yetj, but space forbids
any mention of them.
During our Freshman year Cheyney and Whitcomb tried to impart to us a desultory knowledge of
historical facts, while Crawley and Hallett were supposed to teach us Mathematics. This latter instructor
was possessed of many qualifications. He had a beard, carefully parted, which needed the constant attention
of one hand to keep it in position Qas he was not ambidextrous it rendered his work all the more interestingb.
He had a new baby which frequently forced him from his downy couch in the small hours of the night, much
to the detriment of George Hervey's mathematical acumen. He had aireputation for having Hunked nearly
every man in ,QQ, and he had a feeling that our class did not have supreme confidence in his ability, but he
made up the deficiency on that score by reminding us that he " could teach mathematics as well as any man
in the University." Can it be wondered that he blighted the career of many a young and rising genius?
At this period we were also inspired by one of the choice specimens in the English Department, a certain
Arthur Hobson Quinn, who, book in hand, endeavored to extract from the class the opinions of tl1at
reverediauthority, Genung, upon the subject of Rhetoric. It is to be noted that he was obliged to take a
year's leave of absence immediately afterwards in which to recuperate. The time, however, seemed to
have been principally employed in raising a beard the color of bricks. In Room 205, on Fridays at 9 a. m.,
we were accustomed to hear " Randy 'i Faries, former athlete, deliver his opinions on the- subject of the
" muckles," " fuds,'l and exercise with or without retrograde, a course intended to supplant the gymnasium
work required in former years. We certainly attained much muscular exercise in transcribing " Randy's "
highly polished and slowly dictated sentences to paper. We felt that we were playing a philanthropic
role, inasmuch as we thus enabled " Randy " to draw his salary, retain his title as physical director, and
get free passes to Franklin Field.
Professor Easton spent many hours in explaining to us Cin a course designated English Languagel
that there was no exact point at which a bush in growing became a tree, and that the feminine mind
differentiated a " ha-at J' from a "bunnit." In Latin the class came in contact with that great source of
inspiration, Henricus Gibbons, the man with opinions on the subject of reading Latin with expressiong the
compiler of the most elaborate system of abbreviations known to modern civilization Cto be compared only to
the Chinese system of hieroglyphicsbg who constantly worried lest some member of the class should stultify
himself. Davis in preparing always used two encyclopedias, six Roman histories, all the known dictionaries
of antiquities, several histories of Latin literature, seven Latin lexicons and nine Latin grammars, in addition
to filling three note books per diem with remarkable statements which fell from the lips of this modern
oracle. When this preparation brought only a frown and a " Very poorg next," from his royal nibs, the rest
of us were nowhere at all. Gibbons one day, in a fit of wrath, sent Eddie Goodman to the library to make
investigations upon the subject of Iunius Brutus, concerning whom Eddie was entirely ignorant. Goodman
wandered back towards the close of the hour to announce his great discovery, i. e., that the aforesaid " Iunius
B. was a man," to the huge delight of H. G. Ceverything about H. G. is hugej.
We translated German classics under gentle Daniel Shumway, who made a trip to Germany a few
years since and forgot how to speak English-a course which involved much labor in the resurrection of his
mother tongue on returning to the University. It was here that Buckwalter, the Camden oarsman, displayed
his adroitness in reading from a crib deftly held within the covers of the original.
In the second term, Freshman year, we made the acquaintance of a man named Thorpe, who
recommended about Efty volumes on the lives of great American statesmen for our diligent perusal, and gave
us his opinions on the subject of the Constitution of the United States of America. What we learned was
that " This world is a very peculiar place if youlonly End time to smile." Whereupon Thorpe would hook
one corner of his smile over his right ear and gaze upon us in his own benign fashion.
In Sophomore year Gibbons continued his persecution, still clinging tenaciously to his ancient
expressions, " Look it up," and " If you don't know don't say." One day Gibbons lit upon Gaw, who was
wading through V" De Amicitia H in a rather halting fashion, with " Mr. Gaw, have you not translated this?"
Upon receiving the reply that Gaw had not done so, his face became distorted with rage as he howled, " How
can you expect to read it intelligibly P" Gaw replied with a nerve peculiarly his own, " You have told us
always to read the Latin over twice before translating itf' The class held its breath, while Gaw hid behind
his book, and the hair on the top of Gibbons' head resumed its usual unkempt condition.
Capricornicus Jackson, he of the broad-rimmed hat and floating beard, also attempted to impart a
knowledge of Latin to the class, distributing marks according to his own patented lottery system.
It was in this year that we dabbled in science and Artie Goodspeed quizzed us on Physics and performed
sleight-of-hand for the two Co-eds who sat in the corner. On Friday afternoons we tramped over to the john
Harrison Lab, and watched Gaw break the record for smashed glassware and explosions, while he produced
odors unnamable which even Doc Shinn could not classify.
In Junior year the Greek men came under the sceptre of Zeus Lamberton, the professor Who always
insisted on taking his morning constitutional while lecturing to the class.
Marion Dexter Learned indulged in day dreams while the class translated German, and Rennert
taught every other European language which anybody was willing to study. " Corney " Wygandt had us
writing essays on all conceivable subjects, from " Gypsies " to " Tannhausern Cthis latter was a very severe
strain upon Rice's morals, although the beverage of this name had never been known to take any eifectj.
The name of Felix Emmanuel Schelling was now incorporated in our roster, we found its owner to
be a particularly good fellow, with a fondness for lazy men-especially those who took the seminary.
That was the place to go for a quiet and peaceful afternoon. You could doze calmly in one corner while a
classmate read a paper on something, it did not matter what, as any subject under the sun afforded Felix an
opportunity to quote his stock criticisms. He always kept them in a box and then drew for the one to be
used next. And how delightful it was in class to hear him read a beautiful sentence and then remark with
his blandest smile, " Please notice, gentlemen, this is not quoted." He evidently found it easier to call
attention to his own thoughts scattered through the lecture than to credit all his authorities-Schelling hasa
great reverence for authorities.
George Stuart Fullerton was in Europe for the year, so we were sent to " Willie " Newbold to have
our morals toned up. That course in Ethics would be hard to beat. The Dean of the Faculty of Philosophy
has a number of notes mimeographed, which he sold to the class at reduced rates U50 per cent prontj, and
then, having quieted his conscience, proceeded to tell us all his own idiosyncrasies, and stories by the score
about the eccentricities of his relatives. He certainly wrought a reformation in the class, and we profited by
his course to an unlimited extent. Then a youth named Singer, who had never before taught a large class,
was turned loose upon us. He endeavored to exercise a cultural influence upon the Wharton School with
Logic as set forth by jevons. Our intellects were so improved that we entirely transcended common sense,
our instructor having informed us there was no such thing in logic. It was here that Folz fell from grace.
Just prior to an examination Folz asked Dr. Singer hovv he marked, and receivedl the very terse reply,
"According to meritf' For some unaccountable reason Folz made only a G. By the Way, Ed Rich has
never passed logic yet. This year we also visited Professor Macllflaster, who lectured to us and for whom
we summarized regularly and wrote innumerable pages of facts, essays being marked by bulk. It was Jim
Riddle who discovered him weighing essays in his oliice one day. Mac ilunked him in revenge, but repented
and took back the mark.
Part of us returned to " Pop " Easton to take a course in what Davis called inevening company Che
went somefimes in evening companyj, " Philologyf' but which the rest were satisned to call Anglo-Saxon.
It was in Senior year that Fisher made the hit of his life, when, having failed to prepare his lesson in
" Piers Plowmanf' he translated " felle frekis " Ccruel manj as " fell freak," to the great edification of his
hearers. Fullerton returned and gave a course in Philosophy, which nearly drove Michener insane trying to
find the substratum of the Professor's celebrated post. f
Grant came to grief with Gudeman this year. He had been given an unusually tough passage to
translate, and no one is quite certain what happened. All the class remember is that Gudeman remarked in
his bland and self-assertive style, " I don't object to the use of a translation, Mr. Grant, when one knows
how to use it judiciouslyf' It was a case of " Some have greatness thrust upon themj, for poor Alex never
was guilty of using such a bold, bad thing as a trot in his life.
Then Ed Rich profited so by his hours with Rennert that he appeared in a French play given by the
students and the old maid French teachers of the Girls, High School- What happened we don't know, only
Ed has been real quiet since he returned. It was hinted that he forgot his lines and spoke Pe1m.g1Z11a1zz'a1z
Board dialect, but that's a slander on Ed.
Well, our course was run. It is true some of the diplomas were withheld until some of the bluifers
handed the beautiful stenographers in Josh's office the twenty plunks, but it all came out nicely in the end,
and Billy Read is carrying his sheepskin poster abroad with him to prove he really went to college.
It is the old, old story, year by year classes graduate, but each can do it but once, and for them the
tale is new. Our days as Arts men have been happy and our life has been joyous, but the sadness of farewell
must come, and beneath the laughter and the merry jest there must be a deeper feeling for the days that are
no more. May we ever live up to the best that Old Penn has taught us and to the hearty, loyal, democratic
spirit which pervaded each section of the Class of Igoo l ' ,

R X l N X '- f H' ' ' ' e H their benighted ears the very A B C of man's noblest
science awakened no thrill of recognition. Its glo-
rious phrase-ology sounded uncouth and jarring, and the enunciation of the phrase "wage-fundu was no
more magnetic than the name of a Siberian street railway. Cimmerian is a feeble word in describing the
blackness of that economic night. In the crassness of their brains GD 'L Mill " suggested areference to the
factory district of Kensington, "Greshan1,l' our late Secretary of State, or " Ricardo," an Italian poet of the
early Renaissance. Of all their indiscretions the most inexplicable was this: when asked what was the
most important happening of 1776 they would reply with refreshing stupidity " The Declaration of Inde-
pendence l" Conceive of the narrowness of their little world. Such an answer is almost staggering when
one considers that in that year Adam Smith irst published HThe Wealth of Nations,"
" But," as our friend Jerome Sykes has it, " to resume,"-in such afliicted and maimed condition the
seventeen aforesaid mortals entered Room 205. On the raised platform an appalling being scowled nercely
at his audience. He was dressed in a tailcoat of the style of 1859, very baggy trousers, and screamed loudly
in a surprising voice that ranged all the way from a pitiful treble to the malignant roar of an enraged
jaguar. The seventeen green ones trembled visibly and thought they were listening to the king of the
Wharton Schoolfbut it was only Falkner. I
- From that fateful hour the economic horizon of these postulants waxed broader and brighter until at
the close of the first year they could discuss the elementary premises with some degree of assurance.
In the foregoing retrospect the details of this shadowy period are necessarily dim and uncertain but
two events of moment stand out in aggressive outline. The one brought the august name of Oliver before
the world. In an earnest crusade, steeped in honest conviction, our versatile demi-god waged an anti-
Teutonic campaign against the prosy complexities of " Historische Erzahlungenfi It was an uphill, but
winning ight, and in the end a protocol was agreed on, highly acceptable to the doughty Leon. His fame
was established and in due course he participated in every department of college work with the possible
exception of the shuffle-board tournament. His individual record is the longest in this book, and to the
uninitiated seems imposing.
The other battle was a desperate and losing game. Centrefield Newburger and his accompanying
excrescence, Craven, attempted to overthrow the sublime science of mathematics but the result was a dire
massacre. 'Worsted and dismayed the Hag of rebellion was lowered and the Sphinx-like mien of Evans
triumphed. Incidental to this period may also be mentioned the sudden exit of Shaffer during the mid-yearly
tournament. Among other causes to which his departures is ascribed the most popular has been stultification
of the intellect from undue participation in ice cream at Dr. Seager's delightful reception to the Freshmen.
That occasion was his last appearance as a student of the college-a fact that is particularly significant. And
what a lovely affair that was anyway ! How timidly we broached economic witticisms anent the marginal
utility of fancy cakes, and with what unerring facility did Guckes walk off with the first prize in the " authors'
puzzle." It was altogether a most thrilling occasion and perhaps made doubly so by Dear Ninny's manifest
attentions to the scant supply of young maidens present. But they were halcyon days, for Adams has left
us for Art, and Seager has grown grumpy and pedagogical. Besides, he is married.
In one of his novels Mark Twain comfortably says "Let us skip a number of years IU And that
method which is safe, sure, and especially convenient to the lazy man will be adopted in the present instance.
In the interval liowing Cnote the economic lingo herej between our verdant guilelessness as Freshmen and the
acquisition of mortar board caps, a number of important happenings befell. Of these a cursory review fnote
again the sweet sensuousuess of phrasej will be here presented.
Among a considerable clientele economics was spurned and liouted for the mazes of the law. Snyder,
Denniston, Donahue, Blakely. Guckes and Francis were guilty of this heterodoxy. Newburger left the
Wharton School for the theatre fintelligent boylj, while our ranks were enriched by the acquisition of Tine-
wright, the misanthrope and woman-hater, and O. Loeb, the climber of Parnassus, It may also be added
that during this period Grayson and Fonse acquired the art of pool,
Swamped, squeezed, deluged, and overpowered with economics, haggarcl with the thoughts of over-
population, appalled at the " Wage-Fiiiid " theory and crazed with the sophistries of George, eleven would-
be doctors in the science of Mammon have tottered sleepily through the final spasm. Only at scant intervals
during the Senior year has anyone ceased from his resting. That unwonted circumstance occurred oftenest
when jim Young, his beautiful forehead reaching all the way across his head, his dainty ankles clothed in
bill poster socks, and waving his watch frantically in one hand would thunder in manly tones " Gentlemen,-
conzentrazion of Bu-rows! The other learned QD professors of Mr. joseph Wharton's somewhat doubtful
experiment have been pacing dreamily up the 'Lprimrose path of dalliancef' and -with unwarranted pre-
sumption have been fertilizing their intellects on the erudite reports of the eleven sleeping beauties.
Witli one exception !
Peep cautiously into the corner sanctum at eleven o'clock on Tuesdays and Thursdays. As the rude
street boys graphically express it-" That will make your hair curl !" With one cheese-cloth trouser Cand
the accompanying limbj crossed far, far over the other, with one scrawny hand holding his pencil lecture
notes, and the other barely touching the lower lip in imbecilic fashion, with an inspired grin on his face and
words of wisdom in his mouth-sits "Saint Simon." He expounds the only gospel-the gospel of Saint
john Csurnamed Millj. Enthusiasm personined, economics in the Hesh, he sagely interprets the Testament.
But the silence is unbroken-all are sleeping quietly, while a smile of childlike innocence plays peacefully on
every countenance. Perchance a question from Yas, Burch or Saul, or someone is banished for eating candy,
otherwise the stillness is unbroken. And then the old man goes home to his little house and his barrel of
apples and thinks he has mastered life !
In leaving the old room around the corner with its walls lined with musty annals of the American
Academy, it is gratifying to recount the insurmountable exams just scrambled through, and the many tragic
deaths escaped. It is also pleasant to think of what we haven't learned.
As for the professors, leave old Omar to deal with them-
" Why all the saints and sages who discussed
Of the two worlds so learnedly are thrust
Like foolish prophets forth 5 their words to scorn
Are scattered, and their mouths are stopt with dust 1"

fN X IKE the calm after the storm, like sunshine
LKWTZIN6-B after rain, like-well, I don't know what
Y-4-,,,fg,-m.fxl, like-like something, there appeared in
Q the fall of '96 a set of genii, who were to
demonstrate to the preceding classes how things ought to be did. There were not many of us, ten in all, I
believe, but the rare quality of the crowd was something at which all marveled. Naturally it did not take
such a lot long to get into the mysteries of the T- square and triangle, the triangular scale and the hexagonal
pencil, although we gazed horror-stricken at one of the older men soaking his paper in the sink. In spite of
this there was undoubtedly a certain freshness about all when Popsy first smiled benignly upon us, but it was
that sort of dewey anticipation which betokens a wonderful future. Striking indeed was the revelation
made in our first efforts. It showed clearly that we were to be counted with the gods of architectureg in
fact, it revealed that Michelangelo was not the only one to draw freehand circles freehand, that Smith, a
member of our class, had rivaled and even surpassed him in the eifort. It was, however, sad that a pin-
hole should have somehow gotten into the centre of the circle, and that the great Lewis Frederic Pilcher
jealous at his inability to obtain like result, should have scathingly planted " Nit" upon the paper.
The same Lewis Frederic, still carried away by his fsf- .--- '-
envy, tried to frighten us out of the course by telling us 4 Jig .,,
harrowing tales of its difficulties, and how many graves Lfwi---glib ' ' 5
were illed with its young victims, and how-and there he - Xi, A, I
fell into bitter weeping, even the young Corbin, the giant "'m'W r fag- ,-f giaia
of them all, would also have fallen had he not stretched out a saving
hand and grabbed him by the hair from the whirlpool of destruc-
tion. But to all this we stood firm, and even Schenck, who had Qghg
wavered for a moment, regained assurance by Delaney's conndent I '
look. It was a trying moment, but we withstood it. I gil
Despite all these little eye-openers from our beloved precep- t
tors, we were soon above their notice, and decided to administer things according to our own tastes. The
shining light of the class soon absolved us of any serious intentions until one memorable day we beheld his
brilliancy reflected from the placid waters of the sink. This gentleman, Borst, the member from Baltimore,
left us at the end of the year, as he discovered that we were slightly too fast for him.
Events rapidly materialized under the tutelage of Popsy and his right-hand man, Lewis Frederic.
We learned all things: how to wet a sponge and then-very important this is-what symbolic figures to
describe with it upon the paper before stretching the latter, British ensigns, white elephants, sunllowers, the
most popular forms of motion. We delved into the mysteries of graphical projections, and learned how to
build houses with pasteboard, glue, and matchsticks. In fact, Albert learned so rapidly that he made the
startling and heretofore unknown discovery that two plane surfaces intersect in a sphere, while Lester Kintzing
built so good a house that he has kept it with him to be a source of future inspiration.
Young Corbin, the adjunct of Lewis Frederic, was wont to do the honors in those days by his occasional
presence. Little did we dream then how many would be the facts we would glean from this especially bright
star of the class. Were it not for his efforts in the succeeding years, the fellows would probably never have
known that the stones used in the Pitti Palace were twelve feet high and the mortar between them as many
inches thick. We have truly learned our lesson, that wisdom is oft found in unsought-for places.
Too many have already dwelt upon the course in "The Orders" with the Right Reverend Doctor
Popsy, so we will omit its discussion here, and with almost a regret, will conclude the Freshman year, by
the end of which we had become so identified as a class, that many, many sad tears were shed as we bade
each other good-bye.
The following fall we reassembled with ruddy faces and reinvigorated spirits. We lost our worthy
friend, Delaney, which fact made Albert almost inconsolable, while Borst, as already said, was too slow for
our pace. In place of these, however, we received two worthier acquisitions in Preston, who with truly good
sense preferred our company to that of ,QQ, and De Garmo, the boy wonder from Swarthmore.
Now for the nrst time we met St. Julian Millard Cpeace be to his departing soul, for he has left us to
wander in the wild and woolly West, where cacti flourish and scalps are removed as a daily entertainmentj.
He was, during the days that he flourished, popularly known as Milly. Soft and sweet you might say, but
you probably have never been troubled with weird and ghost-like Shades and Shadows, nor with Perspective,
fearfully significant of vanishing genius, with mechanics and other such nightmares. If you have, then
your guilty soul must be stricken with terror.
To mitigate our sufferings, we were in the freehandicourse put in charge of a kind and gentle spirit,
enthusiastic about form and composition, and sympathetic to the greatest degree. " My poor child," he once
cried to Eddie Willing, " why will you be so naughty? " and entwined him in his loving embrace. This was
the one known as Diz, whom we truly liked.
About this time Smith discovered that he had chosen too high a profession, so with modesty, be it said,
he changed his course.
Our first opportunity to astonish the world with our architectural attainments arrived after midyears.
Freddie Mann had us in charge. So rapidly did we advance in our accomplishments that nothing less would
satisfy us than the sending of a representative, Dab Blair by name, into the Class of ,9Q, and many a race for
their money did he afford them. He is now performing some of his tricks at the Beaux Arts, Paris. It was
at this time that we hrst heard the words, " Willing, the boy who is willing," and so on, for suddenly were
we electrihed by the appearance of that boy who has now attained such fame. We thus retained our average
representation as a class despite all the obstacles thrown in our path to make us separate, diminish in numbers,
and dwindle into nothingness. Yes, we survived all this and departed at the end of our Sophomore year in
a unity of spirit.
Hardly had we been divorced from our drawing-boards and T-squares before we were again taking
them up. Already had we reached the dignity of Juniors. All returned to the fold but Preston and
Hiltebeitel-the former, because of a deep infatuation for a dark-eyed Porto Rican maiden, was late in making
his appearance, while the 1atter's pet cat was sick and so delayed his return about a month. We failed to
mention that De Garmo, whose acquaintance we had made in the Sophomore year, was very persuasively
invited to enjoy the society of his father at Cornell, and thither he emigrated, but rx M V -
. . . . .ww ll I '..
in lieu of this we welcomed as a regular student Eddie Willing. "' 'K K A
The main subject of this year was of course supposed to be design. As in Ai ' '
this we soon exhausted the knowledge of Freddie Mann, Popsy decided to get the real hot thing Q .
direct from Paris in the person of Frank Edson Perkins. So astonished did the architectural world .
Q become by our lofty attainments, that all flocked to our ranks. Kast, the mighty Hoover, and
even the great Lewis Frederic himself, decided to join our class in design, the latter forming a X
copartnership with Boit, yet unbroken, which we hope will be productive of great things in the
future, as it has been during their college course. If V,
Not alone in design, but also in scientific researches, were we to be ele-
vated above our predecessors. Unlike the preceding classes, so Popsy thought, we
had a depth of research which required the knowledge of two eminent men, Drs. A - V 1
Buggy and Nolan, to satisfy. The keen elucidative powers of the former were
remarkable. Without referring more than once to his notes, he told us that water 7' , "Zigi ,
was used for drinking, for cleaning out sewers, to row on, and sometimes for 4 We
washing. His was a remarkable mind. The strain upon us was too great to be '
long withstood, so we hurriedly finished the course, much before the term was up. Willing on the Field
His colleague, Dr. Nolan, assuredly never meant us harm, all he told us was in moments of unconsciousness,
which we cannot do else but forgive.
Here were We first introduced to Amos Boyden. Amos discovered that we knew it all in Building
Construction, so he would merely talk on kindred subjects, tell us that bricks were red, and how many
cupfuls of cement to mix with a barrel of sand to get a precipitate of mortar. At examination we were
asked to reckon to the single brick how many it would take to build a brick house, and other little things.
So well did we acquit ourselves that Amos decided not to bother us in our Senior year.
We must not fail to speak of our course in pen scratches. So forcibly did " bully line " Hays impress
upon us the importance of pen and ink work in securing a job that we all fell to with a vigor that left him
no doubt as to our future successes. In this wise we sailed happily on till the close of our Junior year, and
then separated, to meet again in the last year of our college course. A
The irst three years served only as a prelude to the last, the most important, the Senior year. We

here joined hand with the Specials who were by their good fate thrown
into our company to enjoy and reap benefits therefrom. Time had
made ravages in their ranks, so that only four of them remained to
learn from their superior Seniors. Yet what a variety of individualities,
the solemn dignihed Fairchild, who would not give a college yell for
fear of lowering his dignity, the Romeo-like Warren, the argumenta-
tive, champion oyster-eater, jory, and the last, the man always? yes
always? ready to inconvenience himself to confer a favor upon some
At length we had reached the last lap. The confidence born of
this knowledge gave us a new impetus, we went at all things with a new
zest. Never, so " Sally Everett " said, had he had so good a class,
" and this," he added, " is no idle jest," and you may be well assured
it was not. He decided that we knew more of Historic Ornament than
he did, so he spent his hours in the Interior Decoration Room and
only when our voices would swell into too heavenly a harmony would
he be recalled to our room to stand and gaze upon us in wonder. Be-
fore the first term had been half through its course, the members of the
class decided to make a practical application of their accumulated knowl-
edge of mural decoration and the college world was accordingly surprised f
one morning to find a beautifully conceived and skillfully executed legend
upon the wall.
" Rubber thy necke and contemplate
of alle freshe menne

Our friend Sallie appeared to us in many other capacities besides the aforemen-
tioned, as reader of Bere-nson's History of Art, teacher of life, and teacher of our Man- TD,
nerful Behavior toward the Gentler Sex. Indeed so decided were the results obtained l
from the last course that We vied with one another to gain the reputation of having Mi, . il
derived the greatest benefit therefrom. Warren and Fairchild carried the day, and now ' ill' I
are they surely convinced that virtuets reward is always sure. They had reached the
point of saying good-by to the Co eds which Sallie happily noticed one day, and with a
spirit of just reward made polite mention thereof in the place below, to this place were
both men invited next day when the Dean presented each with a stick of lemon candy
and a motherly smile.
In design we jogged along merrily. We took a trip to Washington where Albert if
decided to leave us and would have succeeded in fulfilling his Hendish scheme but for the
heroic measures adopted by Willing, Magaziner, and a guardian of the peace to recall 5
him to himself and to us, long after the midnight bells had ceased warning the weary
wanderer to his downy couch. That we failed in our capacities as chaperons on this
trip was plainly to be seen, for on our way home Oakley, one of the Juniors whom we
had premised to guard from harm, won the affections of a young lady, hitherto unknown.
j 1 While we close our eyes and pass by his little railroad accident we tremble with fear
at the possible consequences of the sly glances that Frank Edson Perkins shot at a
F certain Red and Blue maiden in Washington. With all this, we returned with
' , . newly engendered appetites for Ruskin's "frozen music " that we had to satisfy at
' 6 any cost.
I Yv Many things happened when the second term arrived. We greeted the return
' -ml of Popsy from a long drawn out illness. The government changed aspect. Kinder-
! W garten methods resumed their vogue, and the fellows heard revived Popsyls famous
X X wood-pecker act. This was the Renaissance in its true form.
A-... 1 ' Our interests now centred in our theses. We, cannot too strongly commend
the subjects chosen and their treatment. Let me cite a few instances. To begin
with, the young Corbin ever since his return from Egypt was imbued with the
Smerzc-Z' 10:7 zzz Wa mgfdixa
ambition to design a small African village with an adjoining hospital. Here was his chance to allow his
imagination full sway and it certainly did sway. Different theories are set forth by different members of the
profession as to how he followed out his scheme, but most authorities agree on this one point, that his
buildings were designed, shuffled and then blown at random by nature's winds, to settle where they would
in all sorts of picturesque positions.
Hiltebeitel, deeply impressed by the story of the Tower of Babel, decided to adopt and modernize this
scheme. This he has beautifully affected in a Roman Catholic Gothic Cathedral. And Preston, while on a
tour to the Trocadero so strongly felt the beauty of the histrionic art, that he instantly conceived the idea of
creating for it a home grandly magnificent and a joy to all ten cent gallery gods. As to Mag's, well, we
cannot trifle with holy things, so all we will say is "Reguz'escaL' in pace."
We could speak indehnitely on these subjects, as for instance Willing's 350,000,000 library for a small
town, Kintzing's Seaside Home for disabled tars and Schenck's Anglo-Italian Club House for the promotion
of the popular game of tennis.
We must hurry on to close our theme and sadly speak of the end. Lewis Frederic, wearied in body
and spirit, no longer feeling the youthful hope and strength that had so long buoyed him up, could no further
stand the strain of moulding the minds of these rugged youths of Penn, so he decided to leave, to deal with
more gentle souls and to recount to Vassar maidens tales of adventuresaso keenly interesting.
Popsy again appeared to us in a strong light. For many years vague and evanescent dreams of a
new building for the school of architecture had floated through his brain, but the ways and means were
lacking. Since all things come to him that waits, Popsyv waited. His wait resulted in the announcement this
year, that each man who would be ambitious enough to work his thesis on a board was to be taxed a dollar.
This only is the authentic reason as to why Albert worked all over the Senior room floor. The serious-
ness of things now appealed to the crowd so that Bert ceased his
coin manipulations, while Media, Lansdowne, Chester and even
Frankford were almost entirely forgotten-Pottstown never.
All the characters in this variety have now acted their little
parts. The grand finale comes as we file into Popsy's oiice to
petition him to change the new course in history from four
lectures to ten. He is obdurate, and at length with a burst of
feeling that awakens new echoes in our hearts, he gushes out
the statement that he will not quibble over details. Willing falls
Hat. We carry him out to receive the sympathies of the less adventurous spirits. Kolbe and Fairchild
weep. And so all massed together, ofone united mind in all noble ventures as these, we stand as the curtain
slowly falls. It rises for an encore. We all cling together, as if we would not leave the spot, memories,
sweet memories tinge the atmosphere, associations come crowding back to us, we feel our hearts full and
as the curtain again descends now for the last time we cannot refrain from doing as the Mask and Wig boys
always do, and giving a cheer, a long one, for dear old Penn.

Kintzing was so pleased with the wa5 he had made himself President that he in-
vited the Society to his hou e for the first meeting. Corbin and " Mag 1' enlivened
the occasion by a scientific exhibition of blindfold boxing. It was the case of an
irresistible force meeting an immovable body so honors were declared even. Pilcher and
Perkins delivered another of their popular dialogues on the "Architect in Architecture."
At this meeting Dawson took beer and a cigarette and under their baleful influence gave an
eloquent speech on art. The Boy wonder was invited to speak but was so scared and embar-
rassed that he has not chown up at any other of the meetings.

At Schenck's the speaker of the evening was Perkins, but as Dana appeared the former could only
utter a few words while Dana stopped to light a cigarette. Since then Albert hasn't had a decent criticism.
Preston regretted that he had not handed in a problem, as gray paper received first mention through the
elforts of Mag. Albert captured second by the use of a Hiltebeitelesque color scheme.
Some of the members had been collecting two dollars a week at home for dues and Adam P. was spend-
ing his regularly for red ties. Kintzing and Oakley bought all the editions OD of Sappho they could find and
the Society seemed to be in a Hourishing financial condition. About this time we decided to have acertiicate
of membership. As it was tio be printed on leather, Maggie conceived the novel idea of printing it on a pair of
old shoe soles and thereby won Erst. In this competition Corbin ran a close ninth, which stimulated the
old rivalry long existing between these two stars.
The best meeting of the year, however, was held at Hoover and Warren's house, when the phonograph
entertained the assembly. including Professor Laird, with some of Bacon's Essays. A grand spree followed
in the dining room, after which the profs were unceremoniously hustled upstairs to criticise the monthly
problem while the members of the Society adjourned to the parlor and listened to some records which We
thought the professors too young to comprehend. Oakley has never been himself since the last part of this
We feel as we look over our brilliant meteor-like career that we have not lived in vain. Our different
problems have raised the envy of the Co-eds to such a point that at times it has almost short-circuited itself.
However, under the tender care of their nurse Sarah, we earnestly hope that they will be able to live down
the fact that they cannot be members of the Society.
HE Class of rgoo in Civil Engineering had the misfortune
to start with thirteen members. The Faculty seeing this
immediately began to reduce the number till now but tive
are left to be graduated with thelast class of the nineteenth
century. In Freshman year We looked askance at one another
and the monotony was enlivened only by the frequent scraps be-
tween Hoffman, a cowboy from Montana, and Tags, a child fresh
from a prep school. At the end of this year the class adjourned
for a survey to Fairmount Park and there began its great Work of
the perversion of ,Willie Webb. The program of the survey was
simple,-select games of chance in the mornings in the office and a
line up on the fence along the drive in the afternoon to gaze on the
female bicyclers. After a Week the class grew tired of it and left for
the vacation, Willie picking up his traps and carting them back to
In Sophomore year we made a map of this survey and formed,
in the small drawing room where we Worked, a gauntlet which all
Freshmen were forced to run in passing to their room and lucky was
he Who got through safely. In this term Hoffman and Tags emu-
lated the Kilkenny cats, fought ten rounds to a finish and no re-
mains of either Were ever found. Hederman also went to look for
them and has never returned. The great event of the second year
is the annual railroad survey. Frenchtown, N. I., was the scene of our work and there we repaired, some
in a private Qboxb car with Willie Webb and some by wheel. The latter went by way of Princeton and
arrived a day late. At Frenchtown we did not stop at the temperance hotel, and every night at supper the
milk, would give out and then they would furnish us, without extra charge, with glasses of-more milk.
At the store appeared the sign-
" Fresh Country Eggs . . . 20 cents per doz.
Fresh Eggs ..... . I5 cents per doz.
Eggs ...... ................ 8 cents per dozf'
It was " Eggs" which carried the lunch basket for us each day. The Class of rgoo will long be
remembered in Frenchtown as the founders of a large charitable institution. The night before we left, five
members of the class raised a subscription of three dollars each, which they turned over to the town treasurer
for fireworks on the coming Fourth of july.
When we reassembled junior year our numbers were sadly reduced, but to compensate We were intro-
duced to the " Dook " and began to cultivate with him for eight hours a week a new language and new
sciences. For about a month we sat before him in silent awe and listened to ravings about Hweversal
of stewess " and other things whose new names seemed unfamiliar in our ears. But soon we grew used to
this and began to admire his lectures without notes and his topic papers which we drew by lot, though we
knew them all by the turn down of the corners. The physical laboratory occupied much of our time and
every week We wrote up long imaginary accounts of what we had done there. We made it lively for them
and both instructors resigned at the end of the year. The only member of the class to win a " P," Hager,
gained it this year by steering the 'Varsity to victory at Poughkeepsie. Being too small to wear it on his
breast in the ordinary manner, the Athletic Association hung the top around his neck and made him a pair
of trousers out of the rest. Conway now gave up all study and went into politics, taking to himself the presi-
dency of the class and from that time he has seldom been seen around the department.
As Seniors we began to enjoy life. We gave up all other amusements to stay with the " Dook " and
prospered accordingly. We this year took up astronomy and began to pay visits to the Flower Observatory.
On the night when the Leonid meteor shower was supposed to arrive we all sat up there to see it, but the
only Leonids to arrive were those of " the fourth magnitude, one degree," which were taken with one of the
members of the class in a black bottle. All we got on the excursion was a night on the grass, cold feet, and
oysters and coffee at 3 a. m. At the end of the first term two of the class were held up in astronomy for
examination. The next morning all the papers announced that Professor Doolittle had been mysteriously
waylaid on his way home and we kept our thoughts to ourselves. On account of this we have since had
Eric Doolittle as a teacher and all passed the second term's work with D-I-'s, because Eric always does most
of the work himself and always makes an apology when he finds anything wrong, but Eric can teach too.
The Civil Engineering Society was founded by the Senior Class and has proved a most enjoyable
feature of the department. After a good deal of stump speaking we elected Percival president, and Hahn
became corresponding secretary because he wanted his name printed on the note paper. Taylor took charge
of the program committee so that he could leave his own name off the list of unfortunate ones who were
called on to speak. The Society holds a smoker every month, where edibles and pipes are dispensed free and
a keg holds a place of honor on top of a drawing desk. Hager is chief cook and bottle washer on these
occasions. The Society always adjourns by holding on in a line to Percival's coat tails. He " mothers H
the crowd and delivers them all home safely. Once a month the members are addressed by some prominent
engineer. Webster has told us how the city councils were buncoed into making appropriations for the Read-
ing Subway. Newall, of the Government Survey, advised us all to become student hydrographers at
nothing a week and board. Bidde of Albany told us about the filtration plant, and Trautwine explained
why Philadelphia uses water when the breweries are still running. Schermerhorn explained navigation on
the Delaware River and how to get money from the United States. The annual meeting and last smoker was
certainly a success and we found out how much talent we had in the department, but no one can remember
just how it ended. Willie Webb became bad at these meetings and tried to smoke a pipeg result, he left
early and suddenly. He announced his intention of doing the act again at the next meeting, but his wife
must have given him a parting injunction not to for he turned up with the skin off one side of his face and
refused a pipe with thanks.
The great event of the Civil Engineering Society was a trip down the Delaware River on a tug boat.
It was marred only by having to stop to pick up Freshmen who fell overboard, and by the fact that when
walking a pipe at League Island a lot of the fellows fell off and had to be dragged out of the mud.
The last great event of our College course was our Thesis work. Nelson and Conway retired to the
testing laboratory and tossed bricks about in a " Rattlerf' From their regions came every now and then
awful crashes of falling piles of brick and volleys of profanity. Conway soon gave up on account of sickness
and retired from the class much regretted. The 1' Dook " inveigled Percival into taking his place, so rgoo
has had three hod carriers. The other fellows took easier theses and succeeded in finishing them without
discomfort to others.
And now that our race is run we leave the department, hoping that before long the transit flag may
wave over a new building devoted entirely to Civil Engineering, and that the court' of the " Dook " may be
held in more splendid state than heretofore.

" Gummief' alias Joel Gomborow. H Gummie" is a unique character in various respects. Born in Russia
and reared in America, his character is the result of a combination of the peculiar influences of both nations,
the final result being an odd conglomeration of opposites. " Gummief' with his "Vel1, a Vell," and his
persistent questioning, has given us more trouble and amusement than all others of our class combined.
Yet withal he is large-hearted, good-natured, and always willing to aid his struggling fellows when the
There were two other "foreigners" among us who have departed. One was john E. Zimmerman,
called " Zimmiej' for easy,who originated in the Argentine Republic, and the other, " Lady " Buckwalter, from
Camden, in that newly acquired Spanish colony of New jersey. In the middle ofthe Freshman year "Lady"
left us and entered that intellectual "haven of rest," known in the University catalogue as the Course in
Arts and Science. "Zimmie " remained in the class as a "partial E' until the end of the Sophomore year,
when he left us to go forth and iight the Spaniards, thereby honoring the University and covering himself
with glory. 'K Sal," otherwise known as Bingham, also left us Freshman year, his most noted achievement
during his stay being to confirm the deliberate judgment of Dr. Schwatt when that very discerning and
emphatic genius called him a fool !
Midyear, with its hopes and fears, its "passed " and "dropped," was over, and we approached the
" nnalsf' When the smoke from the battleground at the close of the Freshman year had lifted, three more
of our number were counted with the fallen, and we mourned the departure of Stoll, Halstead and Messick.
We chanted the dead-march, and upon their monuments inscribed the fraternal sentiment " Rest in Peace?
Messick was a most entertaining classmate, and delighted to amuse his fellows with tales-ish-tales-and
thereby acquired the appropriate title of "The Liar." We sincerely regretted his departure, as the narration
of his pretended achievements helped us for the time to forget the almost incessant " grind " incident to the
course in Mechanical Engineering.
The non-return of Jessup and Somers for the Sophomore year diminished still further our forces.
During this year the military spirit incident to the Spanish-American war robbed us of that heroic leader,
Paul H. McCook. " Cookie " is descended from the family celebrated as "The Fighting McCooksg " and
when the war fever got into his veins he had to ight, whether in the Bowl-fights, upon the campus or in
Cuba. As a result of his combative propensity, he and the faculty sometimes came together in battle, and,
Ending the faculty always in the majority, Paul concluded to leave for parts where fighting was the natural
order of things, and, in the middle of the Sophomore year, he followed his father's example and left for
Santiago. Before going he experienced the greatest joy of his college life while acting as a Committee of
One to inform the Dean what he thought of the whole University outfit, and to offer some suggestions as to
how things in general, and examinations in particular, should be conducted, in order to best conform to the
varied desires of the undergrads.
By this period of the Sophomore year we had become pretty well acquainted with one another, and
our individual likes and characteristics were appearing. We began to realize how " sot in his opinions " was
" Smoky " Evans, and how impossible it was to change his views when once formed. We discovered that
the peculiar tendency of Perkin's toes to turn inward was either natural or had been acquired by long
practice, and we confessed ourselves unable to effect any change to the right direction, and so they continue to
pursue the same evil course to this day. The soft Southern accent, the clear-cut and cherubic countenance of
" Apie" Hume, have always been a charm and a benediction to us. During this year was formed that
friendship between Terry and McKee, which is htly exemplified only by that between Castor and Pollux.
In this year Deakin, or " Deak," as he was known, concluded that there were more chances to excel as
a civil engineer, and, upon his return in the autumn, he changed his course to conform to his changed
opinions, and thus we were compelled to part with another of our number.
With the beginning of the Sophomore year we were delighted to make the acquaintance of " Little"
Stuart, or as he was rated in the University catalogue " Mr. " Stuart. He was of the Class of '98, and our
department being very hard pressed, he was taken on to lill Fleck's place. " Fleck,', or again to speak with
proper decorum, Mr. Fleckenstein, had taught us Steam Engine and Mechanism during the Freshman year,
but concluding that his highest aspirations would be realized in literature, he forsook the classroom and
wrote a book called " The Prince of Gravasf' Perhaps you have read it, we hope not.
We had but little to do with " Little" Stuart during the Sophomore year, but during the Junior he
endeavored with some degree of success to instill into our juvenile minds such stuff as Hydraulics, Graphic
Statics, and kindred subjects. At the end of the Junior year he concluded to see the world outside
Philadelphia and go west to seek his fortune. His vacancy was filled by a dear little one whom we
innocently called " Lizzie." Later we will tell you more about him.
With the Junior year came the division of our class into the Mechanical and the Electrical sections,
those wishing to make the most of their college course choosing-well, ask one of us. This year we learned
what work really is, and how hard the " Colonel " and his coadjutors could make the fellows grind if they
chose to do so. And hence there has never been a class that has so covered itself with glory, and brought
such honor upon the "'Varsity," as the one of IQOOQ and it is a proud legacy of illustrious example which it
transmits to its successors.
In the Mechanical section there was formed that brilliant combination of " The Big Three," composed
of " Dutch Bill " Brendlinger, " Dutch Eddie " Ehlers, and " Smoky " Evans. Why they styled themselves
"The Big Three" the rest of us never learned, though we imagined they thought they had a monopoly of the
brains of that section,-" but we may be wrong." The last row of seats in the several classrooms had such an
attraction for four members of the Electrical section that they invariably occupied those chairs. It was 'K Rube"
Temple who first named them " The Back Row Trust," when he was one day accused by Mr. Waldo of belong-
ing to the clique. This little combine of four remained intact until the end of the junior year when it was
broken by the lamented death of one of its members, shortly after the close of the Junior year. joseph
Lawrence Mearns, or "Iimmie,l' as he was familiarly called, was one whose ambitious efforts and conscien-
tious devotion to his work had been an example and inspiration to all his classmates. In his death we lost a
loyal and true friend, and our Alma Mater a son of Whom she may well have been proud. In every class
" The Back Row Trust," Mearns, McKee, Terry and Marshall, were to be found in the position of honor,
the back of the room.
Worrall Elizabeth Sharpless Temple was a character. His full name being too great for us, he was
dubbed " Rube " for short, not because it was a proper abbreviation, but because it described him. He
came to college as verdant as the campus, and was in town scarcely a week before he could show us how to
smoke cigarettes, how to make one's hat hang on one ear, and could say " Bah jove, fellows," so that the
uninitiated would suppose he had caught it direct from H. R. H himself. When Maude Adams came to
town during his junior year, the only thing that enabled him to pull through the midyear trials was that the
South Broad closed on Sunday nights. Scrape through he did, but the finals were too much for him, and
when the results were posted, the red ink effect reminded us of one of his own cravats, and Rube became a
Al Reeder and C. VV. Baker were the pluggers of the class. Al simply worked and slept, according
to his now famous declaration. He was the possessor of one of the two moustaches of the class. Reeder's
was light and unobtrusive, too much so, in fact, but McKee's was stiff and aggressive. Hume pretended to
rival these for first honors, but as his claims were based upon about twenty-seven and a half small black
specks on his lip, they could scarcely be considered by an unbiased committee of award. Baker worked but
did not sleep until compelled to part company with us during the Senior year, owing to failing health.
"Dominic " Magarge and " Curly " Martin were the musical members of the class. " Dominie "
received his name in the Sophomore year from the great dissimilarity between one of Scottls characters,
Dominie Sampson, and himself. He earned his musical reputation through his oft-repeated assertion, set to
music, that " Of course we never could be like him, but to be as like him as we were able to be." Hearing
this regularly at least three times daily, we all most heartily concluded that to be "like him," in this
particular at least, was really not our highest ambition, and so the "Dominic " remains to this day the
original and only impersonator of Dan Daly. "Curly,' comes from Frankford, and having been fed on
fried bread and frankfurters, he had a most remarkable crop of curly hair, which stood out in every direction
with a kind of " touch-me-not " air. He was exceedingly fond of good music and was somewhat of a tenoric
Our class has been well favored with athletes. " Walt H Kohn has repeatedly saved our baseball and
football teams from ignominious defeats. " Parrot-toed " Perkins, having a brother before him, made the
gymnasium team and earned a 'Varsity " P." by the gracefulness of his " hand-stand " on the parallel bars.
" Eddie " Ehlers gained a reputation as a football player, oarsman and pole vaulter, once being as close as
a toss-up for first place in a spring handicap game. He won the toss. " Smoky " Evans was an oarsman
and a-spffzbzier. He has practiced but little as the latter, and his successes have not been very marked as
yet, but by persistent effort in future he may yet " get there." His most celebrated and strenuous race was
with atrolley car one lonely night, when, after a desperate " go " of seven squares, he' was compelled to
admit himself outclassed and to witness the car bear away into the darkness the prize for which he had so
With the advent of the Senior year we made the acquaintance of " Lizzief, otherwise known as Mr.
Tiemann, who endeavored to teach us Hydrodynamics. He had a beautiful complexion, with rosy cheeks,
and the most artistically drooping moustache imaginable. He made himself famous by an address delivered
to the class at our first meeting, in which he very kindly assured ns that "If you talk I will not hesitate to
mark you zero for the recitation." Under the civilizing and reining influence of our class he outgrew this
little peculiarity, and thereafter we had no further trouble with him.
There was one course which we thoroughly enjoyed. This was Pump Design, pursued under Mr,
Picolet, otherwise " Pickles." Such brain effort as was expended upon this study has probably never been
equaled in the history of this department. In the first place, we had to teach " Pick " how a pump should
be designed, as he had apparently forgotten all that the Class of ,QQ claim to have taught him. Then we
designed our pumps-and such pumps as they were ! Large pumps and small pumps, pressure pumps and
Ere pumps-all displaying the remarkable inventive fertility of our intellects, and demonstrating what a
wide range of design is possible in such a simple machine as a pump. Patterson, or " Pat," was in his
element here, 'and his " No matter" might be heard at any unexpected moment. While " Pick " was in
the room we worked, and when he was absent We bet on the height of a chimney or the area of a manhole,
at one cent per, the winner taking the pot. Taken as a Whole it was a really enjoyable course, though a
little too approximate for our ideas of accuracy.
It was in this year that we developed a great love for athletics. In the fall We had football and in the
spring baseball and crap. Though our football team Was nominally under the care of Evans, " Captain"
Nusbaum seemed to feel that the Whole burden rested upon his shoulders, and in the practice and game he felt
himself called upon to olfer each of us valuable QU advice as to the way to play. We lost our game with the
juniors chiefly because the " Captain," himselfa Democrat, did not realize until near the end of the game
that our opponents were mainly Republican in their principles. In the spring the " Captain H organized our
baseball team and allowed Evans to run it. The result was that the "star" Work of Hume and Perkins
and of the " Captain " himself was of no avail in the junior games and We permitted them to Win out.
This year Witmer, or " Vitmer," as Schwatt had called him, allowed that discoloration of his upper
lip to assume such proportions that We realized there were at least some latent possibilities of a budding
moustache, Perhaps the example of his friend Reeder had something to do with his encouragement of
those possibilities. A
Now of course we had had smokers and dances in the department before, but it remained for us in our
last year to eclipse anything which had preceded us. Though Ehlers bulldozed us into making him
chairman of the smoker committee, it proved that he had made a Wise choice, and We had a smoker that we
all will rememberand which will be an inspiring example to succeeding generations. Our dance was a
most successful affair, not only from a social standpoint, but because, contrary to all college traditions, the
committee came out ahead. Everybody was happy except poor " Biell " Brendlinger, who was compelled to
come " stag." So elated was the committee at having come out ahead that they presented to the department
an ice-cooler, something which it has always lacked and which stands there to-day as a noble example of
what a dance committee may do.

fate. There were six of us just so arranged that each could have a Co-ed apiece if he wished. The whole
faculty had gathered to welcome us and it was no fault of theirs that we were not scared out of our wits.
Mac's address of welcome lasted some few hours, but that rather prepared us for his coming lectures.

There was Roberts the Jersey farmer, Mander who asked for
a glass of cow at the Houston Club cafe and then would have ex-
pired from laughter but for the heroic eiforts of the waiter to quickly
serve him the "fuminant," and thus choke him oifg and Leopold
who tried hard to appear wise. O11 the other hand there was Miss
Metzler, a rosy-faced, pretty little thing-the personilication of the
vigor of youth, Miss Boewig, whose opinion was always in evidence,
and finally Miss Gardner, greatest at least in avoirdupois-she who
used to walk from Chapel with her gentleman friends, till one day
Mac made a suggestion since which time she has more often been
seen by herself
Our iirst few weeks were ones of experience We were
tastmg University life, associating with new people and at the same
time being introduced with due reverence to the great sciences
But january was approaching and with it the Mid years They
came on us like so many monsters trying hard to haul us into the
great abyss. But when we stayed holding on like grim death-only death passes-and we stayed-after
the exams had passed. Miss Metzler however left before the exams and showed her good sense tooj As
we look back on the Freshman year, which so quickly passed away, we cannot help feeling that much
time was wasted in talk and frivolities that might to better advantage have been spent in other ways, but
we may as well be philosophical, we cannot help it now, so why care. Think also of the experience and
lesson it holds for us for the future.
As Sophs we are a howling success, from now on our fame was assured. We had a Gardner to grace
our Botany, a Baer was routed out from the Chemistry department and landed safely in the Biological cage,
Bally was enticed and he proved himself quite a favorite with the " Lydiesf' in Roberts we had all a Jersey
collection could drum up. Miss Boewig still stuck to her opinion and in the opinion of the five of us
QMander and Leopold having disappearedb, we were important, but when in the Mid-years we caught the
tail-end of a " P " we were important to a less degree, but still a happy, contented family.
The second term found " Cat" our chief enjoyment. We skinned cats, dissected cats, pickled cats,
smelled cats, heard cats, ate catsup, and finally when Burke called us up at the end of the year we passed
In Zoology we began with worms technically called Allollobophora, a word best said slowly to avoid
a tickling sensation in the roof of the mouth. Then we had oysters on the half-shell, lobsters following
quickly after, and found later that only the female mosquito stings, so that our hatred for the fair sex was
increased the more. In Botany Mac passed around the specimens-old boots, old bottles, slime moulds
and mouldy slimes, decaying potatoes, green bread, deceased hsh, etc., which with a little alcohol did not
go badly at all-for microscopic study.
The finals had no terror for us now, exams were simply pastime, each Professor was only too glad to
pass us as the easiest way to get rid of us.
As juniors we strutted around showing our superiority over the Sophs and Freshies. Roberts now
began his famous " Collection," his motto being " Things lying around belong to me if no one is looking."
Bally began his career as a traveling salesman, and was able thereby to buy his own slides and covers and

Miss Boewigls kind tender nature rebelled and compelled her to rest for a year.
" Man, poor man " was now appointed to fill the place a year before so strongly held by the poor
innocent cats, but two of our number helped in this human denudation, Miss Gardner and Bally taking a
consignment of Botany instead. Miss Gardner was now the only girl left, and to show her dignity dropped
her gowns to full length, and arranged her hair on the top of her head. It was now that the triumvirate,
or three reprobates, as the men of the class were variously called, organized the Ancient Order of the Glad
Hand, a strictly unique and very exclusive society of the Biological department.
One September day in ,QQ we entered Chapel at the same hour we had entered four years before as
Freshmen, but under what changed circumstances, and with what different feeling, Then we hurried in
and sat down with open mouth, but afraid to speak to our neighbor. Now we were kept busy looking up
our friends and giving our class yell. We began the year by changing our motto to all work and no

play, etc., much to the disgust of certain members of the faculty, who tried to show their feelings at the
Mid-year exams, but with poor success. One member was kind enough to tell us we did not possess
average intelligence, but as all had previously come to the same con-
clusion concerning him we worried but little. Early in the winter we 1 l -f
had a sleighing party on which occasion Fresh and Sophs were also - - .4 --
invited, but the Juniors were not considered proper companions. g ' i X

Bally spent much time standing in open 'delds when the X

bottle Cnot of milkb and endeavored to get the plant, in the pot to
grow upside down. She now wore ,Varsity pins for buttons and where a pin was not where a button should
be, well, there should have been something there anyway. Baer the chicken authority, found that chicks
of three days and one hour of age, could not walk up a perpendicular fence if it were more than tive

OUR years ago the Department of Chemistry was increased by the
addition of nine men, we might say nine muses if they had all
been as beautiful as little Herbert Spencer Turner, alias " Pretty-
boy" and " H2 S," but plain Jim Gillinder and "Pierrepont"
Morgan were in the bunch, and it would have taken a large allotment of
ravishing beauty on the part of the other seven to overcome such painful
plainness as these two are blessed with.
Six of the men reminded one more of pretty green meadows and
fresh budding spring leaves Qalso greenj than real, solemn and earnest
students, but Gillinder, Turner and Morgan were well up in all branches
of every art.
Only two, the irst two, of these had sulficient temerity, engen-
dered by 'their having the ,degree of B. S. from the High School, to
think elementary chemistry beneath them. They took original work, but
finding after a stif course of test-tube smashing and linger-burning,
under Dr. Moyer, they turned back into the smoother paths of tangible
formulae in books. S
Morgan tried some kind of a bluff to get ont of this elementary work, too, but Dr. Smith changed his
ideas, and " Pierrepont " had to fall in love with some fair maid who made him cut two afternoons a week
for her sake. p
All the class were Philadelphians except " Pat," who came from Jersey and brought a predilection for
rowing and girls with him, " Foreigner " Forbing from Ohio, and Merz from Reading, the city of pretzels
and beer. Pat, the ladies' man, came very near going to Columbia, fortunately he did not, and the chemical
section was saved a representative in athletics, and the University received a manager for her crew.
In June of Freshman year Forbing left for Southern skies and balmy breezes, his health was so poor,
and he is not yet back. When Sophomore year opened, another defection from our ranks was noticed in the
person of Baer, who joined the ranks of the Bi.
Hart, of P. M. C., came to try to fill his place, while Goodman, of '99, and Wilkins, from Washington,
tried to till the vacant chair Forbing had left. Hart started in as a regular, but there was too much grind
about it for him, so he turned specialist and jogged along, adding to his course in chemistry, entrees of
billiards, with chess and cussing on side.
In this year for the first time we made the acquaintance of Dr. Smith, the best man that ever stood in
two shoes, and also scraped an acquaintance with Doc Brown, who tried to rock us to sleep with mineralogy,
the science of guessing. You guess so and then guess again.
Time went slipping out of the windows accompanied with fumes of chlorine and hydrogen sulphide,
and junior year came, and with it a great addition in the person of Harris, the man with an apology for a
moustache. That moustache is so ashamed of ,itself that it has a continual rosy blush on. Harris was the
former maid of all work at the Edison Laboratory, up Jersey way, but that was such a shocking place to live
in that he came down to Philadelphia to eat Schuylkill and scrapple.
Doctor Smith engineered us through Quantitative Analysis, and several men became famous, or
infamous, as the case may be. Choose the term and fit it to them, in other words, use your own digestion.
Wilkins achieved lasting fame by supplying an unnamed brand of wine for analysis and assimilation,
and Coffman, who had been quiescent up to this time, disgraced us in an unchemistlike manner by joining
the Combined Musical Clubs. To hide our feelings we made him our curly-headed mascot and warded off
many threatened misfortunes. V
Wurtz's and Sadtler's Technical Chemistries were retailed to us in one-hour doses, and we took many
and fearful technical trips. One trip was especially well attended, it was that to the Brewery, where we got
free beer. Even Coffman came, but he said he only did it to get points for his father's next lecture to young
men. Turner and Faber, our " only original " chemists, were there to help the rest home, and so they did,
as well as they could.
Along toward the middle of Junior year, two cosmopolites from Columbia dropped up to Pennsylvania
to do a little real work, and Smith and Imlach were placed on the rolls.
Friend, the religious hermit-chemist, became infected with the gentler of Patterson's predilections that
spring, and to the best of our knowledge and belief, " Nellie" still meets him on Thursday afternoons at
Fifteenth and Chestnut, near the Y. M. C. A.
The last lap of our course, and the home-stretch, Senior year, came around nine months ago, more or
less, seated on the lap of an encyclopedia of chemistry of 1600 pages. As an appendix to this chemical cousin
of Barker's " Bible " came the famous instructor, Dr. Lorenz Qwith numerous aliasesj. He knew it all. So
when he said " It is not so," we would all swear it was, and then think of sometl1ing else. His wonderful
rules that an absence of live minutes meant an afteruoon's absence, and that to be seen apparently doing
nothing was to be counted absent, are long since obsolete, but none the less remembered.
There were terrible smashups this year in organic, and it will only be due to President Cof the Supply
RoomD Connor's leniency if our one bone and a half a week manages to cover his billets douxs.
Many and pleasant memories are around our four-years' work, and the best of them all is the
remembrance of our friendship and comradeship, for he made it that, of Dr. Smith.
LASSES may come and classes may go but the Class of Nineteen Hun-
dred goes on forever. Gets there and gets back.
That sums up 1900 and tells more about her strength than could

fered the loss of such great men as she has lost, and yet maintain her equi-
librium speaks much for the solidity of 1900. To be sure she was the cause of
the greatness of these men, for contact with 1900 of necessity implies that the man
Was improved and broadened, in fact the reason why most of them left was
that the development was too rapid. Some of our classmates were so conscious
of the :improvement they had undergone that they thought it their duty to
impart this broadening inHuence upon other departments, and so we ind Den-
niston and Donehoo going as missionaries to the Law School While Goodman
labors in the darkness of the Medical Department. Tom Hutchins also thought
he had learned enough from 1900, so after hnishing a course in Rowing at
Poughkeepsie, he migrated to Annapolis to instruct the naval cadets in matters
aquatic and to him can be traced the important part which the navy played in
the Spanish War.
We came back Sophomore year to find that McCracken had left us for the mysteries of medicine and
that VValt Coombs was going to try his luck at dentistry. Forbing would no longer endanger the chemical
laboratory for he had gone back to Ohio to play lacrosse-and the flute.
Thus with depleted ranks we went through Sophomore year, till one morning we Woke up to ind
that we were at war with Spain and that here was a chance for somebody to become a hero--and, by way of
parenthesis, the iinals were dangerously near. This was the chance for which some had been waiting Cto be
a heroj and never thinking of anything but duty, answered their country's call and went to fight-and to
guard powder works.
Texas Abrahams enlisted and had many narrow escapes Che was guarding a nitro-glycerine worksj.
McCook liked his experience so well that he is now an oiiicer in the regular army and engaged to be married,
all the effect of brass buttons. Many others joined the volunteer army and in a short time their names will be
found preserved on the " War Memorial Tower," that future generations may know of the greatness of 1900,
or at least of the greatness of a few of IQOO who ran away to ight. The rest of us were content with joining
" Woodruhms University Brigade," and as we did not get a chance to get in the game, the Class of IQOO waS
kept in tact. -
Buckwalter, who after captaining the victorious '98 crew, felt that nothing higher could be reached,
left us and settled down across the water-in Camden. Nate Folwell went to England where they my he is
studying, but you can't believe all you hear. Hodge thought the legal profession needed some new life and
began the study with the intention of supplying that need and helping Denny and Donny out. Hutchinson
went to the aid of the newspapers, while Joe Knight went over to India to help build bridges and feed famine
W'e might mention many more who started with us for many dropped by the wayside, but wherever
you find them or whatever they are doing they are all satisfied that one of the happiest memories of their
lives, though the time may have been and probably was pretty short, was the sojourn with the Nitty Nits.

Song the Fourth.
A1'1': " Lzz Halle Hz1'z'siwuze."
It was our intent and our minds were bent
On burning Shumway 3
But he who is meant for a cremated gent
Must be great in some Way.
We looked through his Dutch and his Grammar and such,
Not anything great could we find.
His voice was so sad, and translations so bad,
That we banished Herr Dan from our mind.
No, he isn't worth a cent, not a blooming copper cent,
For cheapness We are now compelled to spurn him,
As he isn't fit for earth, he's a merry mark for mirth,
So we leave him, and the Freshman class can burn him.
Perhaps you have heard of that venerable Kurd,
His notions absurd, in a book that's a bird,
Made our life darker.
If a question you ask, he refuses the task,
But tells of Dom Pedro and Yale.
Never cross, if you can, such a dangerous man,
For he keeps frozen air in a pail.

the cremation our memory forsook us and we sang it out of tune as well as out of sight.
Indeed, we had good reason to give the songs and speeches much practice, for We had attended
Ninety-Nine's cremation and-like everything that Ninety-Nine did-it was a disgrace to all previous
and succeeding classes. So, to make sure of a decent performance, we took the management out of Dan
Karcher's hands, the P6'7'Z7Z.S:j!Z'ZJ6Z7ZZ'6Z7Z had printed the names ofthe whole committee, for it was run on news-
paper principles in those days-and turned the entire show over to General Weyler, Anna Held, Theodore
Roosevelt, Lydia Pinkham, Buncalo Bill, Lord Kelvin, and Mr, and Mrs. Ananias, whose names we very
kindly printed on the program. This fooled the Profs, who came in a body, and believed that "Bunny"
Liveright, the Coeed, was Anna Held, while Goodspeed had all he could do, in keeping Barker from racing
down to shake hands with Lord Kelvin, whom he thought he saw masquerading as Doctor Munyon.
To Nineteen Hundred belongs the honor of the first dramatization of " Quo Vadisfl The book had
then an amazing popularity-we didn't know why, but " Easy " Davis said, f' because it possessed a tincture
of the beastly and depraved instincts of man." We decided to write the cremation up as " Quo Vadis, Jr.,',
and we did it. Gibbons was the chosen victim, and Ed Rich was to act the part, for he had cut Latin oftener
than had anybody else in the class, and had almost forgotten what Gibbons looked like. In order to give the
performance at least a semblance of " Quo Vadisf' the characters were given names that ended in " us,"
and "um,l' and "O," which was the way poor Crossey used to decline "bonus,', back in Courj year I.
Accordingly, we chose Nero, Doctor Sleepnights Munyon, Dcnarius Homo Ca real punj, Vinicius, Pomejns,
Eunice, Quo Vadis, Ir., and Henricuss jibboneyus, to do their several stunts in the cremation exercises.
" Alice" Gaw mildly suggested that his " experience in acting ought to recommend him to a part in the
histrionic festivities," so we induced him to crawl inside an immense book, constructed for the performance,
and we bound the volume with two covers. The binding " Quo Vadis, Jr." was outside the binding " De
Senectutef' and the latter was to be spread to view at the proper moment, then the book was to be with-
drawn from its animated contents, revealing Gaw in a provoking pair of black tights, rescued, he said, from
one of his former escapades, as " Hamlet," or " Ham Omelette in the Breakfast Roll," as rumor says.
" Bunny " Liveright promised to give us some slick dancing 5 and Ned Goodman acted Pomp, being dubbed
" Pompejusf' and daubed black.
After we had stolen about all the false noses and beards that Boch's man had brought with him, and
had togged ourselves out in robes de nzciz' we told Eddy Beale, who had brought a goodly portion of his
Municipal Band, to proceed with the " Stars a11d Stripes Forever." Howling incoherent nothings about
" the Rathskeller under the Forum," and " witnessing Gibbons' carcass in ashes," we followed after George
Turner's buggy, in which were seated Ed Rich, made up as Gibbons, and "Mendy" made up as Nero.
Franklin Field was alight with sky-rockets, Roman candles and torches. We started red light but Bill Easton
said it hurt his eyes and would keep him from speaking, so we-glad of the excuse-sent him home and
kept on burning the red light.
" Quo Vadis, Ir," the book, was given the introductory address, for the machine were running Gaw
for the Soph. Declamation prize, under promise of voting for Conway for Senior President. The speech
began on a fair evening, the sun had gone down as peaceably as Professor Cheyney's voice, one star had appeared
and Oliver swore that " it looked, for all the world, like a tiny calcium light away up in the gallery of the
gods." Well, the gallery was not pleased with the performance. The Grand Stand, just in front of us,
was quiet and attentive but the gods, far above us, were muttering the worst kind of maledictions 5 we
couldn't hear what they said, but the words were so strong that the air and winds were blown into a gale,
surging around the speaker's scant, but neatly patted locks like a monster barber giving a giant a shampoo.
Then when the wind had towzled up his hair to -its pleasure, a gentle sprinkling of water was added to his
poll 3 but even that did nothing to soothe the assumed wrath of our orator. He forgot his lines and turned
his full current of speech on the unappreciative elements, ended in one burst of eloquence, crawled into the
book, like a turtle into his shell, and stayed there for the remainder of the show.
We had the bad taste to sing several songs to the airs of " My Coal Black Lady," " Sister Mary Jane's
Top Note," and " Flee as a Bird," but the thunder-storm drowned our voices, and'us too. The population
on the Grand Stand began to decrease and disappear themselves, so, as our last resort, we put forth little
" Raf " Kellam, who had professional aspirations and was attired as Doctor Sleepnights Munyon. The joke
in Sleepnights was that Ninety-Nine, among its selected collection of freaks, possessed one named Liknaitz,
who closely resembled Doctor Munyon. 1' Raf" had a couple of sixteen pound shot, whitewashed for the
occasion and entrusted to two small boys, picked up for ditto, while he spouted an address, also picked up
for ditto. Maybe the gallery gods didn't queer him !
The rain came down so hard that the whitewashed cannon balls lost their paleness and were inally
washed out of the small boys' closely held Hsts. Upon this, Dan Karcher, who by a stupendous pair of shoes
was disguised as Josh, ordered the performance to stop. The spectators had repaired to the dressing rooms
under the Grand Stand, while others, not knowing of any other shelter, stood in the vicinity of the covered
track, and allowed the rain to trickle down their necks. Most of them were pitching into Sachs, declaring
that although he sat in the Grand Stand, he was in disguise, and was responsible for the whole episode. He
certainly was in very bad odor with the crowd when we rescued hini. Everybody went home mad, but not
as mad as they would have been had heaven permitted the show to proceed to its usual fiasco iinish, which is
a source of consolation, surely.

ENGAGEMENT No. 1.
55 R. PRESIDENT, the Sophs, the dictators, have changed their ideas and we shall have our
picnic on the old athletic field," such was the report of the bowl ight committee in one of our
Freshman class meetings. It was '99's stern will to have the iight on Franklin Field, so that
non-students might not take advantage of the solemn occasion to see living Apollos. To concede
this point to us was a disgraceful diplomatic defeat for the pride of ,QQ and they thought better to iight it out
before the Freshmen made too elaborate preparation for them. Thinking it best to start a fight when we were
about to get our class photograph taken, commanded by the future heroes of the Typhoid Battalion, they at
that time took possession of the library entrance. They chose this place so that if the Freshmen came out
they could sneak into the library and ask Dr. jastrow, the Assistant Librarian, to keep us out, for they knew
that we were too good students to disturb the library. I-Ie knew better, however, and locked the door, and
so they burned their bridge behind them. Of course we knew what was coming and we disposed of all un-
necessary parts of our clothing, shook up our muscles and gave them a good hearty scrap. It was such a
iight as can only be seen on the bloodiest Held and it should fill a chapter in the text book of the " Art of
War" for Philippine jungle lighters. Talk about General Buller's reverse, if he had seen the reverse of
,QQ he would say: " Oh, I don't know, there are others."
In a minute and without many casualties on our side we occupied "Literary Kopf' For a few minutes
the scrimmage was kept up, but knowing that Eghting against high steps is not favored by a modern nghting
force like the Typhoid Battalion, we transferred the scene of action to the open campus, for even Englishmen
say that civilized warfare ought be conducted in open places to be interesting. But Professor Lamberton,
the Dean of the College, soon appeared with his sober looking face and dear wooly beard Qwhich used to
make us quiet as mice during the chapel servicesb, he raised his hands and proclaimed neutrality. He said 1
" No fighting of any sort whatever shall be indulged in any part of the University under my jurisdiction l"
So we came out to Woodlaiid Avenue and made our final stand and the blood was thicker than mud. An
attempt of a street car to rarn the mass was a failure, the motorman rang the bell in vain until his leg became
stiff, and Darby and Angora were cut oil' from communication with the city. The situation became critical
and the commanding generals at Darby and Angora sent telegrams to a police station for reinforcements.
Down came a squad of two hundred pounders and they took the opportunity to participate in the college
sport. The Freshmen thought, however, that the little bowlman Yasiis life might be endangered under these
heavy men who could readily enlist in General Shafter's Light Infantry, so they snatched him away from the
mass and the ,QQ men were left to straighten out the tangle with the sturdy blue coats from Thirty-
seventh and Woodland.
ENGAGEMENT No. 2.
The night before the real ight our strategic staff risked arrest by coppers and a night in limbo, in order
to make a hole in the fence for the bowlman to get through and they did it well, too, for a horse and cart
could have gone through the chosen spot. This time ,QQ thought they would do better than before, but
again they were fooled. The day came and the two classes occupied either' end of the :field and the bowlman
andthe bowl were formally introduced to each class. With the sound of the referee's Whistle, 799 dropped
the bowl on the ground and the bowlman flew away on the shoulders of a couple of big Freshmen and got
very near the broken part of the fence before he was tackled. Presently a smart Freshmen yelled: "Come off,
,QQ, the bowl is in dangerf' and with their usual wisdom many Sophs went oil' to defend the bowl. This
gave the bowlman a chance to run again and he got through the opening and jumped on a team which was
waiting for him by order of the President of the Freshman class, and in spite of " Sport " Harrison's heroic
effort to stop it the driver whipped up the horse and off it went. The bowlman gave a grand bow to the
heartbroken Sophs and said " Never touched me."
Now the whole force was concentrated at the bowl and the clothes-tearing was religiously pursued.
The bowl was in imminent danger and if it had not been for the referee's modesty the result would have been
different from what it was. His modesty was .so shocked by our appearance, for we were, in many cases,
without any extra or superfluous ornaments in the way ofclothing that he blew the whistle and the fight was
ended with an equal honor to both classes in the time honored, mouldy old fashion.
l ENGAGEMENT No. 3.
A year flew away and the season came round for our annual spree. The Freshmen did not know who
was to be the bowlman. After our experience in the previous year, nobody seemed particularly anxious to
accept the honor. They elected a man for his running ability, but he refused, because Mike Murphy told
him, so he claimed, to save his legs for the Intercollegiate games. They then elected Tom Stevenson and
insisted on his accepting the honor, because he had lots of friends among us and we were expected to be
merciful to him. We did have mercy on him, but he must have eaten too much vegetable soup the day before,
for in the midst of the iight he felt sick and was taken olf the tield to be cared for by a tender nurse. We
waited for a substitute to take his place, but of course they did not anticipate that such a serious result would
come of the soup and had never thought of a substitute. Consequently the ight was declared off without
any decision for either side, but their bowlman was carried from the field in an ambulance, while for our
bowlman a swell team was provided, and this will be enough for any man capable of judging to form an
opinion as to which side won the iight. A

man Ceven the men on the cornmitteej thought he Was
not getting his m0ney's Worth.
Socially the dance was one of the three most successful ones ever given Cthe Junior and the Ivy
being the other two, with the Promenade approaching, at this writingfvvith even more brilliant prospectsfl.
Eddie Beale, the ubiquitous, nourished the baton, and the strains of music that flowed through the room
were such as to excite Bert Corbin's necktie to surmount his collar, to his great discomtiture and to cause Bill
Read to laugh nervously and excitedly while he poured the temperance drink provided all over the front
breadths of his best girl's skirt. But as she said, her dress was only made of " mousseline de soie " and the
circus lemonade would wash out " very nicely." Bill don't know what K' mauslein de soi " is, the nearest he
can come is the familiar chop sooy, but he is sure it must be very expensive.
In junior year we worked like beavers to make our dance the best ever, and in the minds of every one
that went, and they were many, it was far and away the most swagger affair that ever happened in Houston
Hall. As has been noted, it was another social pageant and unlike our first attempt at dance giving, was a
financially successful venture, due mainly to Thee Brown, our chairman's, bunco games among the society
element South of Market street.
It was a slick dance and even if some of the boys did fall all over themselves and their partners on
account of a too slippery lioor and dizziness caused by the near presence of the dear ones, no one felt angry
with them, and though they may have been a little hurt both in body and feelings, it was nothing lasting.
This same Junior it was which had the most serious effect on the men, as nearly every man in the class cut
next day, or those that did not cut were counted as absent by their Profs, who knew they could not have
been to the Junior, or they would not have been in class, and if they had not been tothe Junior, the best
thing to do with them was to get them out of the class as soon as possible for lacking class spirit.
Senior year, leaving the scene of our triumphs at Houston Hall, we sought pastures new and held
our Ivy Ball at Horticultural Hall. The fates were certainly against us, as many another dance was being
given that same night and it was so stormy that no one would even go out so much as to get in and out of a
carriage and thus come to favor us with their company.
Arthur jones, the chairman, wrung his hands and stuttered when he was downstairs on account of the
size, or lack of it, of the crowd that was appearing, though upstairs he was all smiles and ragtime fthe usualj
talk. Beale played for us again at the Ivy as he had at the Junior and the Sophomore, only he played a good
deal louder as it was a larger hall. The crowd was just about the right size for a comfortable, though inan-
cially unsuccessful dance, but everybody, including the committee, had a crack-a-jack time, and money is no
object where genuine pleasure is concerned..
Dan Layton was there and we were all very glad of it. She was a dandy girl and dances like a
Now we are awaiting in happy anticipation the last dance we, as a class, will ever hold, our Senior
Promenade, which will be held at Houston Hall in Commencement week. There is no doubt that it will be
as successful, and even more so, than our earlier efforts, and a large attendance of fair maidens and callow
youths, to say nothing of june bugs and other nocturnal raniblers, is expected.
Dancing may not be our forte, music may Waste its charms upon our careless ears, and beauty pass
before our eyes unheeded, but in giving dances, which combine all three of these, We have certainly found our

T was along about the first of February that Nineteen Hundred, having passed the midyear exams,
determined to have their Freshman banquet. About thirty guileless Freshmen wandered down to the
Bourse on the appointed evening prepared to eat everything in sight and do other things becoming
a live college man. Into the assembled clan suddenly burst the "inextinguishable" Fisher exclaim-
ing that Sophs had grabbed him at the door, but he " had shook them oif like dogs." Such an act of bravery
aroused the whole class, and a wild dash was made for the street, but alas! the Sophs had disappeared.
Things went merrily after that, however. The committee had divided the goats on one side and the
lambs on the other, with Fisher and Remington as neutrals, to separate them. Dear old Willing, after the
silence had once been broken, decided to teach all how to "eat, drink and be merry," and he was more
than successful. "Chris" Hagen, not to be outdone, proposed countless toasts to our noble crew, and
ended by throwing plates at " Nat" Folwell in lieu of bouquets. Then someone asked for a speech from
Fisher, and the trouble began. "Ned" Cheyney tried hard to have the toasts responded to, but in vain,
until Hagen and Williiig were impressed with the idea that they were not all the show. Rather than listen
to such wonderful speeches many left the festive board, and the result was that Fisher delivered his polemic
against ,QQ to a discarded table and Frank Potts, who still saw something to eat. About this time " Stauf"
Oliver, " Ben" Frazier and " Bid" Saul arrived, having taken a nice long carriage ride at the expense of
the Sophs, They finally did obtain some ice-cream, which economical Craven remarked was "pretty ex-
pensive at three per platef' But the worst was over, and after sundry attempts to break everything,
including Fisher and Gaw, an adjournment was effected. It was said, however, that Read and Kellam, the
Jerseyites, spent the night riding in the ferry-boat, unable to decide which end was Camden.
The Sophomore Supper.
The main fact is that there was a supper. Some twenty-live congenial spirits Qor ghoulsj gathered
" round the festive board " Cl believe that is the time-abrased, worm-eaten way of putting ity to do justice to
the excellent menu which Dan Layton, as chairman of the Supper Committee, had not prepared. This
committee had started off wisely by making George Snyder toastmaster, and locating the L' habitat " of the
supper at the Hotel Lafayette.
Well, it was " the feast of reason and the How of bowlf' We had an excellent troupe of speakers and
we left them do their stunts. Nate Folwell told us that our manifest duty was to devote our whole time and
attention to athletics, "Stauf " Oliver assured us that our obligations lay entirely in fostering class spirit,
George Snyder made it succinct that the indispensable thing in college was to concentrate all our hours in the
pursuit of a good time, while Biddle Saul bid us all devote a few spare ones to the ladies Cthough strangely
enough Biddle in the whole of his short young career has never been seen with one of the opposite sex D.
Ralph Kellam pierced the atmosphere and our ears on behalf of the faculty, and Billy Read " retrospectedf'
We don't know exactly what that vague nomenclature means, and we suspect that Billy didn't either, but
nevertheless he did what he could under the circumstances, and the results were eminently satisfactory.
And yet ending in a burst of joy as it did, one would have scarcely believed that our Sophomore
banquet had begun enshrouded in gloom. For, fdrstly, notwithstanding the presence of Nate Folwell, many
had been the fears entertained by the rumor Cno, the rumor didn't entertain them, we didy spread at the
Broad Street Station preparatory to our procession to the Lafayette, that there were about two thousand
Freshmen laying in wait outside. We had pluckily resolved to ight our way through, and set forth, a
dauntless band, to find nothing but the night air and a clear route awaiting us. So gloom No, I was
dispelled. But gloom No 2 was the enervating factor.
For Fisher, irrepressible, irresistible, irresponsible Fisher, "who never opened his mouth without
detracting from the sum of human knowledge," had not materialized. Eatables could be dispensed with,
toasts forgotten, but Fisher-never. 'Was the affair about to be quashed? Despair sat heavily on every face,
Misery flaunted her hideous satirical self gaily about, and Sorrow pried open our eyelids to seek entrance,
when lo ! the Spirit of Sullenness was dispelled by the arrival of a disheveled, fatigue-stained, man-with-the-hoe
expressioned figure, which immediately started to make a short story long by describing how the Freshmen
had captured him, ridden him gaily around in a furniture van, allowing him only one drink to resuscitate his
weakened vitality and humbled pride, until inally, at la Cyrano de Bergerac, he had cut his way out from the
motley crew at odds of loo to 1, to rush to our hospitable arms-and behold, when we heard this gurgling
stream of talk we knew that our own dear Fisher was normal and natural and saved to us. So Gloom No. 2
was wiped from the face of the earth and those present.
Fisher then made his speech to dear old Penn and was quickly presented with many delectable tokens
of respect from all parts of the table, and the meeting broke up after prayers by Parson Snyder, who decided
that as the affair had been a stag, Why stagnation! the only thing to do was to stagger home, which, to the
best of his ability, did the best toastmaster that ever graced a table.
Then came our Junior celebration. Quite a crowd presented themselves ready to undergo all the
terrors of dyspepsia and headaches for the honor of Nineteen Hundred. But alas, many disgraced themselves-
Folz, to the horror of all, smoked iwo cigarettes, and then ordered a box of Nestors for the crowd. So
befuddled became his hair that he engaged in a water fight with Kellam, to the detriment of many shirt
fronts. Conway made a wild attempt to respond to a toast, but so popular was he that the rain of napkins,
plates, bread, water and kindred flowers rendered his oratory inaudible. " Alice " Gaw tried hard to lead
the speakers to higher planes of thought, so as to escape the missiles of the crowd, no doubt, but the task
was beyond even him. " Ma " Upson dilated on the Band in so successful a manner that the Dime Museum
engaged him to lecture on Lockport. "Eddie" Rich, our versatile "Eddie," made some very, " irrevalent
remarks " upon everything in general, displaying his wonderful power of blulling. But the fun came to a
sudden close when " Art" jones, the hardest student in the University, announced that he had to go home and
study, as his mother was keeping the midnight oil in readiness for him. Liveright, Kellam and Grayson
suddenly remembered that they, too, had promised to be home early, and so the crowd broke up and sacrificed
their fun for the sake of their marks the next day.
The Senior Class Supper was an anomaly, for while it was the fourth class supper, yet it was a tirst-class
supper. Bill Read was toastmaster, and some of the profs were there-two notable events-and mirabile dzkfu,
the profs behaved themselves very well indeed, and didn't even notice that Ralph Kellam and Deacon Karcher
had an elevated sphere Qhigh-ballj at an early stage of the game Cor was it the meat course ?j
In fact everybody behaved disgracefully well even after the profs left, which they did after having
delivered some soul-stirring speeches. The only threatened unpleasantness was caused by Penniman calling
Charlie Upson a missionary, but Charlie took it wonderfully well and showed no resentment.
After a few "cursory " remarks on Co-eds, Alice Jaw and other ladies, in concerted measures by the
class, Bill Read announced the toasts. First little Coxy Hager recounted in a vivid, blood-curdling manner
the achievements of the crew during his coxswainship, and Albert spoke so well that Louis Taylor smiled.
QI-Ie didn't dare laugh, his three-and-a-half-inch collar prevented that.D
Then Bill Remington made his voice heard above Ethelbert Augustus Corbin's recital of his travels
in Europe? and told something about the track team. " Come out and run, fellows," he urged in that
solemncholy, sepulchral, sigh-inspiring voice of his. " Don't be ashamed. Why, Owen Sypherd even is
running, so yo'u're in no danger of being laughed at." Ralph Kellam next said a few words in a fog-horn
way about Pennsylvania, and Oscar Loeb followed him with such a pathetic plea for the ladies, that Stauffer
Oliver said he was going to try to cultivate their acquaintanceg perhaps " he had misjudged them after all,"
while Irwee Fouse contemplated an early marriage.
Then there were a few more toastsg Dan Karcher said Ed Rich was responsible for " The Punchbowlf'
Ed denied emphatically this monstrous allegation. Arthur Jones plastered a few words in the nick of time,
Percival maligned the engineers, then Alice Iaw's and Easy Davis' respective mothers came for them, and
" the class was dismissed."
it Ethelbert can be engaged to recite this at 32.00 per recite.

HEN Harry Hodge entered Pennsylvania, it was with the distinct under-
standing with himself, that he would revolutionize baseball history at
Old Penn. He found, however, after a year's trial that ,QQ was too far
gone ever to profit by his instructions, so he entered 1900. After "Bennie"
Frazier had himself elected President, Hodge immediately informed him that a base-
ball team with the only Harry as captain would be both a necessity and an honor to
the class. Time has proven it a luxury. After consultation with his prime-minister,
Remington, Frazier appointed Hodge captain of the team, and as Whelen claimed
to know the difference between the outheld and the home plate, he was duly named
After at least three days practice Hodge decided that he was the most eligible
candidate for the position of " the man behind the bat," and that it really didn't
matter who filled the other positions. But notwithstanding the general lack of
interest displayed concerning the team's success, Igoo was fairly well represented
on the diamond in its Freshman year. Harold Cross and " Dan " Layton alternated
in the box, while Donehoo and Denniston played Hrst and second base respectively because they informed
us they had played there on their "prep" school teams. Our sympathy is extended to their former baseball
associates. Cheyney saw that third base was taken care of and " Billy " Remington directed things in general
from short stop, while Grant, Newburger and Whelen, the latter of whom played because he thought he
might get a suit, watched the game from the outfield.
Few games occurred during Freshman year, though we did manage to trounce '98, while our desire
to remain modest and not absorb all honors permitted '99 to defeat us.
Our Sophomore team was neither a thing of beauty nor a joy forever. Allan Henry was elected cap-
tain and Oliver showed his Wharton School training by appointing Brendlinger-later to be manager of the
'Varsity-as director of the business affairs of the team. A game was soon arranged with Penn Charter, and
" mirabile dictu" we managed to defeat them by the large majority of one run. The excitement of this
decisive victory was too much for some of the players. In the following game with the Freshmen, "the
man behind the bat " had forgotten to arouse himself from his slumbers and Henry, who was slated to do the
pitching, was compelled to catch. " Billy " Remington, the regular short stop, who needed no practice other
than hurdling to prepare himself for a ball game, volunteered to do the pitching. After 'K Billy " had given
seventeen consecutive bases on balls, forcing fourteen men over the plate, Hodge made his appearance and the
members of the team went back to their accustomed positions from which they could best see the march of
the 1901 men around the bases and enjoy a much needed rest. The features of the game were the picturesque
language used by " Shorty " Hill when he discovered that 1900 had lost, and by the fact that our solitary
run was made on a dropped third strike, the shock of which so rattled 1901 that they permitted Hederman
to steal second, third and home. Momentary excitement was created by the advent of a ball into Walt
Kohn's territory, fear being expressed that his repose might be disturbed.
We managed to defeat '98 Cby defaultj, while '99 claimed a game from us because we refused to play
in a downpour of rain. We felt that as they were more accustomed to mud than we, the elements were
against us and we yielded less to their baseball prowess, than their ability to withstand dirt.
About this time, at a meeting of the class, Remington, in his sweetest Y. M. C. A. tones, suggested
that his artistic sensibilities had been shocked at the sight of Irving Fouse's stockings, and that the team
should receive suits from the class, so as to have a picture taken. A search in the class treasury revealed the
fact that we were bankrupt, and consequently our contribution was postponed, much to our regret.
When we wandered out to our first practice in Junior year, there were several members of the previous
teams among the missing. Hederman had had an argument with the Dean about Universities in general,
and Pennsylvania in particular, and in consequence decided to cast his fortunes with 1901, while Newburger
departed to put some of " Iosy " Johnson's and " Rolly " Faulkner's lectures to a practice test. However,
Willing joined the class, and with.Patterson, Bush and Miiller, who was elected captain, lilled the gaps to
the complete satisfaction of Willing, Patterson, Bush and Miiller. Fouse was made manager, and mindful
of our previous victory over Penn Charter, he at once arranged a game with that team. As we were nothing
if not courteous, we allowed the Quakers to defeat us this time, but nothing daunted, determined to go to
Wilmington to play the Wilmington High School. Gf course our only object in going to Wilmington was
to see the town and baseball was a very secondary consideration. So secondary, in fact, that it is unnecessary
to state we were defeated. It was a great day for Wilmington, however, for the game was advertised in all
the street cars and there was an additional attraction in the fact that Potts was to give an imitation of a man
trying to play right field. As a Cissie Loftus, Potts was not a howling success. 1
Our game with ,QQ was surely a "comedy of errors." Both teams seemed to think that all neces-
sary to win the game was to make more errors than the other side, and working out on these lines, both teams
conscientiously strove for victory. " Tommy " Donaldson seemed to think the whole affair a rehearsal of a
Mask and Wig burlesque, and, as always, he played his part well. So well, in fact, that Potts, who was
catching, made it a point to miss every ball that came his way, the better to see the performance. " Bill "
Grayson was soon substituted for him, but as this broke up our team Work, we were defeated by the close
score of 26 to 24.
The Chronicler of our baseball teams had hoped that our Senior year's misfortunes on the diamond
might be too late to go on record, but fate has decreed otherwise, and it is with grief and scalding tears that
the last sad rites over our hopes for baseball supremacy are performed.
Fouse was the captain of the forlorn hope, but he was only a small end of a bad nine and our schedule
of games is abruptly brought to a close with the announcement of our inglorious defeat by a score of I7 to oy
by the hated Juniors,which put us conclusively out of the running for the college, let alone the ,Varsity
However, win or lose, rgoo has unseliishly given " The " Brown, " Shoulders " Layton, and
" Colored Man " Csee his individual record for his real namej, Cheyney to the 'Varsity team.
Perhaps had we been less selhsh and kept them for our class teams, despite the faculty, this tale of
woe might have been a tale of Weal.
HIE E QERIDIR
HOUGH our Freshman teams do not usually win the game
with the Harvard Freshman teams, r9oo's was quite sure
that it would prove an exception. For weeks they had
'worked day and night to perfect their team work, and
many a morning hour was cut on account of the previous night's
hard work at the Bartram. Do not think that all the night work
was done at the Bartram, for our class is nothing if not impartial
in its attentions, and Soulais and Boothbyis came in for their share,
K but a good deal of time was spent at the nrst named place. At
last a nt condition was reached, and passed, then came the date
for the game. That's just our luck, to be at our best and be made to wait until the other fellows are lit and
we are stale. However, there is no use in pouring out tears over the over-turned milk pail, for there was
probably enough water in the milk anyway, and we may need the tears for some other mishap in our sad
On November 23, 1896, while the 'Varsity was playing Harvard's selection of pigskin chasers to the
tune of 8-6, our gallant Freshman eleven was swallowing large pills of defeat up at Cambridge. In fact, we
swallowed twenty-six points' worth, which was a square meal all right enough. Not only did the Harvard
men seem to be better players than we were, but the weather held us down. New England has a so much
damper climate than we have in Philadelphia that the Harvard men were used to the slight impediments of
snow, rain and mud, which hampered and restricted us to so large an extent. Neither side played good foot-
ball, and the game was chiefly noticeable for the methodical way in which Harvard shoved the ball slowly
down the Held for touchdowns.
Our team work would have been very good if we had been endeavoring to distract the attention of our
opponents by several simultaneous attacks at various points in the line, but it had the disadvantage of leaving
the runner, or the ball, if the runner had not happened to get it, unprotected.
Folwell, Brendlinger, Coombs and McCracken, the first and the two last, members of the 'Varsity in
later years, did the best work, but as nearly every man on the team was injured early or late in the game it
was hard to keep up steady and consistent playing. We did not feel so very badly about it, however, as we
were no worse than others before and since, and better than some. Besides, we had the victory of the 'Varsity
that year to sustain us. ,
On coming back to Philadelphia we were scheduled to play the Sophs Caccording to the Pemzsylwmzkm,
on Tuesday, November 31, but the day never came aroundD. Tuesday, December 1, the Sophs appeared on
the field, but our team, as one man, was suffering from incapacitating injuries, so we handed over to them
by default the only victory ,QQ ever won from us on the gridiron.
In Sophomore year we ran everything, defeating '99 on December 2, by a score of IO-O, in spite of the
umpire, who penalized us ten of every fifteen yards we made and brought back every other touchdown.
As under classmen we had had to defeat 1901 to win the inestimable privilege of playing the juniors
and on November 30, '97, we had done the trick, 4-0, in the best class game we ever played.
This year was our banner year in football and if it had not been for '99 Med. we would have won the
championship of the University. ,QQ Med. were firm however, and we were as graceful as possible in giving
them the game at IO-O.
We are still proud of the title ofcollege " champs " that we carried off that year, and though we never
had our picture taken we swelled around just as if we were on view down town. junior year came along and
we were lined up on December 8, I898, for our last whack at '99 in football. As it was the last one we
rnade it a good one and gamboled all around our immediate predecessors, scoring 16 points to another goose egg
for the ninety and nine.
1901 had been having a good deal of practice since their defeat by us the year before so when we met
them this year we decided not to do any more than score once, for practice, if steady, deserves a reward, and
as the Yiddishers say, the game was theirs at 17-6.
Not many of us were able to go out this last year but those that did, though outweighed, made a brave
ight and only succumbed when our kickers Were tired out. If We had been able to kick all through from
beginning to end of that, our last game, We would have kicked our Way into another victory, as it was 1901
took the game at 16-o and bought it very dearly.
Such is the record of our triumphs and defeats. The latter may be few or many, that depends on the
point of view, but if there are any tears to be shed, those who have composed our various football teams do
not think that they should be spilled after the perusal of this record of their haps and mishaps, but saved
for a less pleasant tale of some other branch of sport, if any such there may be.

Nineteen Hundred's Champion Crew, Junior Year
1 w is 1"rJ1f'v2f' WMM:
N E 3.1 ' if
2,?... 1-f ,
E are all familiar with the elective lecture courses taken
by the lazy Wharton Schoolers, and Arts and Science
men to till up their miserable Hfteen hours a week, but
"""- 'tis only the chosen few who have taken good old Ellis
Ward's course on Rowing, from live to seven ea.ch evening, who
can truly appreciate the meaning of the word lecture.- We, the
elect,-Ellis' elect eight and a half-would rather listen to his
spicy remarks, and biting criticismsg and withal work till we are
so tired that bed-time comes immediately after supper-time,
than sleep through all the discourses on transportation and economics that ever were written. Nine-
teen Hundred has many things to be proud of, but no athletic teams that she should be prouder of than her
crews. They have taken part in seven races-not counting the first one in which the crew didn't f'row,"
but rather meandered leisurely down the course-taken three hrsts, two seconds, and won the championship
once. She should also be proud of her oarsmen's ability as leg-pullers, for the crews are the only teams that
have consistently, and insistently too, worked the class treasury for appropriations.
That the Bible is not absolutely unknown tonmembers of the rowing fraternity, as is unfortunately the
prevalent opinion, is shown by the manner in which We have proven the old adage that " the last shall be
Eirstf' In the fall of '96 two or three of the more adventurous spirits, inspired by a notice pasted on the
bulletin board, went out into the by-ways and hedges and gathered in those of the newly arrived callow
fledglings who had the temerity to face Ward, who then held the Chair in Rowing, as he has since. The
result was that, when the day of the race came around, eight innocent young lambs, who could, if left to
themselves, row the course without " crabbing" oftener than every stroke, were led to the slaughter. The
magnificent scenery of the multi-ilavored upper Schuylkill was new to these verdant Freshmen, and natur-
ally enough they forgot all about the race and started down the river on a tour of inspection, tacking leisurely
from shore to shore, so as to show no partiality to either side. In spite of all this they made a hard fight for
last place, being only four lengths behind the other crews. Some of those who rowed on our initial crew
are gone, but not forgotten, while the names of most of the others are forgotten-in that capacity, and so out
of courtesy to those composing that merry band of voyagers no statistics will be given.
In the spring of the following year, when the call for candidates for the Freshman crew to row Cornell
and Columbia was issued, almost sixteen men responded-including two coxswains rated at one-half each.
Owing to the unkindness and inappreciativeness of the Faculty, this number was somewhat reduced, and as
every man thought himself entitled to at least two days vacation every week, we usually rowed with seven
and a half men-this being one of the aforementioned halves. Once or twice during the season, however,
after the second and third calls for candidates, we actually had as many as ten men out at the boat house at
once. Notwithstanding all our handicaps we managed to finish a glorious last at Poughkeepsie in the closest
Freshman race ever rowed. The spirit was willing but the flesh was weak and after leading for the irst
three-quarters of a mile we were forced to allow our heavier and therefore stronger opponents to forge ahead.
At the finish, however, we were still in the game, Cornell, of course, being first, Columbia second, and poor
us, a third of a length behind Columbia and a little over a length behind Cornell.
Many of the men who rowed on that Freshman crew have since done other things to add to the prestige
of Nineteen Hundred. Beginning at the front end there was Allan Henry, who rowed bow on three class
crews, but is now mourned as one of the dear departed. Then came McCook, No. 2, the chaplain's son,
whose greatest paternal resemblance lay in the name. He, always of an aggressive nature, afterwards joined
the army and helped ight the typhoid bacillus in the Spanish war. Recently we heard that he was one of
Nineteen Hundred's irst benedicts. Poor McCook, he was always in hot water. Tom Hutchins rowed
three, and being disgusted with the way the Faculty conducted examinations, he went to Annapolis and
overcame his laziness sufliciently to make their 'Varsity crew. Number four was Lester Kintzing, twice
captain of our illustrious class crews, once of the 'Varsity, and who has done more rowing than anyone else
in College, having rowed on three 'Varsity and four class crews. Five was "King Kervey," whose chief
" virtues" were robbing strawberry patches, scrapping, six feet three of length, and an inexplicable partiality
for little Hager. Then Buckwalter, who worked so hard as captain ofthe '98 'Varsity crew that he was forced
to leave College to recuperate, and number seven, Charlie Patterson, pretty " Patsy," who with his good
looks and jollying ability can get better acquainted with a girl in ten minutes than most of ns can in as
many weeks. He has managed the 'Varsity twice and been a member of all the class crews. " Nate"
Folwell was stroke and captain, and-well many of us afterward escorted our sisters Cwe'll call them sisters,
although we didn't want them to promise to be sisters to usj to see him play football. Last and least comes
the coxswain, Hager, whose only attributes were his ilow of language and the readiness with which he could
In the fall of ,Q7 we bobbed up serenely once again for the class races, expecting to do something this
time. Of our Poughkeepsie men we had Henry, Kintzing the captain, Kervey, Patterson, Buckwalter and
Hager. Folwell had deserted us for football, Hutchins had gone home to his daddy, the Commandant at
Annapolis, and the lighting McCook had his dst full of studies. To fill their places on came George Percival,
Bert Corbin, the ex-'Varsity strong man and O my! but he was proud of his shape, and Bill Read, the
politician, but they didn't bring us any luck, for the weather gods turned the world into a cold storage plant
on the day of the race, and besides we drew the Ark, the cedar shell, as a conveyance. We played Noah
and the animals, and lioated about on the top of the waters, being second in the trials and last in the finals.
But, as Dr. Munyon's "Ancient History " tells us, " There is hope," and the next year by dint of
a little hard work, we broke the course record, and earned the right to have our names engraved on the cup
in the Trophy Room. Little tin cans, with glass bottoms, were distributed to all the members of the crew.
The championship crew was Henry, bow, Close, No. 2, Howell, No. 3, Read, No. 4, Corbin, No. 5, Evans,
No. 6, Patterson, No. 7, Kintzing, captain, No. 8, Hager, coxswain.
Greatly encouraged by our conquest of 1898, in our Senior year we again tried to land the champion-
ship, and proved the truth of another old adage " Aim high," instead. We were 'drst in the trials, and second
in the inals by six inches-which was, as we must with our characteristic modesty say, little enough, but
still better than nothing at all. This time we were made up as follows: Patterson, Kintzing and Hager, the
coxswain, who was elected captain this time, chieliy out of pity, occupied their old places, Close, Evans,
Percival and Corbin came back to us, and we received as additions Oliver, the Mask and Wig's"Dainty
little maiden with the downcast eye," and Preston, whom the ninety and nine kindly bequeathed to us as a
This, then, is Nineteen Hundred's aquatic history, and of it, Nineteen Hundred is as proud as she
should be, and should be as proud as she is. 4

S a starter for our record on the track we sent out a few of our
Y T men, to give ,QQ a dose of pretty sure medicine, in the shape of a
crushing defeat. in the Freshman-Sophomore games. Ninety-nine
4 were pretty easy for us in everything, but the easiest thing we
ever did was to make them look like thirty-three cents on the track.
The only three firsts they won were the 440 dash, the hammer-
throw and shot-put, these two last by joe McCracken, and in seconds
and thirds they were almost as badly off, for not only did we have
EKINTZING1 I the champions,but a " second string," as well. And all this when we
were but Freshmen!
In Sophomore year we had a much harder proposition in 1901, and one that we did not solve to our
entire satisfaction, owing to a case of swelled head, on the part of Alex. Grant, who thought he was too
good for class games and would not come out to win the paltry points necessary for us to win a victory.
Those of us who were there, did wonders on the spikes, however, and though the victory did not come
our way, we deserved it.
These smaller matters were nothing, compared with the more important intercollegiate meetings,
Where our man is so apt at breaking the tape, that they have serious thoughts of substituting rope, for our
man is always so far ahead that they have to set another cord for second and third. The only reason they
do11't is the reflection that somebody has to break the tape Cworstedj and we might as well have the honor.
168 l T
This, our man we are speaking of, is Grant again, and in View of what he has done for the University,
we must be lenient with him for his not working harder for the class, as what he does for Penn, he does as a
Igoo man, and that is something.
Bill Remington is the hardest worker We have on the track, and the man who gets least credit for
his Work. Bill Worked for three years until he could do the high hurdles in sixteen, or a fraction less, and
along comes another man who does them in fifteen and a fraction more. It's hard for Bill, but he exercises
his spirit of forbearance gained in Y. M. C. A. conclaves, and says nothing very hard.
Ben Frazier is another track man who has Won considerable fame. A couple of years ago he Wa5
practically unknown in this branch of sport. One day he put on his older brother's track shoes, and the
next We heard he had been made manager of the team, and he had achieved greatness.
So, in the Intercollegiates, rgoo has made her mark.
At the interclass games many a shining light has appeared to iiicker around the track lightly a few
times and then to disappear in the dark of oblivion.
Such a man was Fisher. Who, on seeing his manly form decked in a bathing suit would fail to see that
a man of startling proportions and Wonderful grace had blossomed upon the World of athletics?
Fetterman saw Fisher Walk around a couple of times in the mile walk and promptly used his
influence to have the event stricken from the list of Intercollegiate events, for a mile walk Won by anyone but
Fetterman Would have been an anomaly, and Fisher only needed a little, just a very little, practice to
beat the best of them. Unkind readers who have seen Fisher Walk may say it Would only be because the
best of them Would die laughing, but that is a cruel jest, concocted to wound the feelings of a man whose
Stride has been compared with ducks and hippopotami, and declared the winner in a walk.
jim Gillinder was another man who "assayed" thekvvalk, but he found Fisher Was in the held and
decided to devote his energies to running, which he has done with great success.
Francis was pretty good, back in Freshman year, but he left us for the Law School, and the debilitat-
ing influences over there have brought him down very much. He was good while he Was with us, and if
he had stayed there is no doubt that he Would have been a Winner. Hodge, Goodman, Abrahams and Dea-
kin Were all men of promise, who left us for other Helds of study, and their presence has been much missed.
If little Hume had kept up his good Work in the broad jump, we might have had an Intercollegiate
champion to add to our gallery, but Spangler's Work is too hard to do, and do anything else, so Apie had to
stop his outdoor sports and stick to indoor games.
Eddie Ehlers is another man who could do something in the pole vault, if he were not too busy finding
out about Westinghouse dynamos and kindred sparkling and attractive subjects, with Evans as a side partner
on track, he could cut as large a swath as they do together in Lab.
Lots of us have been down to try things, and special mention is due Owen Sypherd and Ed Rich, for
useless work and tiresome running which they have been doing just lately.
Owen is such a shapely lad that it is a pity no one could get him out before, and if Ed could get over
his liking for the appearance of other people's soles, he would do better. He likes nothing better than the
vista of a bunch of spikes flying over the cinders in front of him, and he is too lazy to show his spikes to the
In spite of our misfortunes and our impediments, we have done much for track athletics, and only a
few weeks ago helped bring the championship of the University in the Inter-department games to the College.
After all, our record is one in which we can take pride, both as to individuals and as to our team.

Club 1n Room IO4, College Hall, where a piano was brought one day early in
1897, and a notice posted that candidates for the Chorus of " Very Little Red
Riding Hood " Were Wanted by the management.
hp Lots of us turned out on the first day and were turned down and out
A I , again by the unfortunate sufferer who had to listen to our struggles for a pure
tone, and our vain endeavors to hold it if we ever found it.
About ten of the best were selected at last, and we appeared with varying degrees of regularity
at the Club House on Quince street, Where We illed the air with sour notesl and pounded the iioorpwith
willing, but awkward feet, in our attempts to learn how to move nearbf in time with the music, or at least to
have two or three of a chorus in time with it at one and the same moment.
Four of us, because we knew 4' the management," were put in the nrst chorus, and Arthur Wilson,
as a member of that red and white bunch of female sleuths, the girl reporters, had at least ive words to say,
so he was in the program under " The Cast-Ca1zlz'7med," and two more of us were the prettiest things
ever, as Morris Dancers. "Os,' Michener, " Little Bo-Peep," was one of these, as his pretty face marked
him for a girl, at tive hundred yards, Cbut no nearer,j while Ed Rich " played" Zlfaia' Marian in a brown
dress and one glove.
Nineteen Hundred's second stab at misrepresentation behind the footlights was in " The House that
jack Built," where more of us went down, some even to the preliminary shows, to try and make a leading
position in the cast, but in the 'final sifting most of us were caught in the screen, and our representation was
slightly smaller than the year before. To offset this, we had the irrepressible toe-dancer and anti-co-ed sport,
Bunny Liveright, who put his scruples in his pocket and dressed up as a girl. As it was in the pocket of his
skirt that he put them, he has never been able to find them since. -
Stauif Oliver made his debut this year in the character of a milkmaid, and he made such a hit with
his shapely legs and willowy form that the next year 'when the Wiggers gave " Captain Kidd," Stauif was
given the part of Ruth, and the name has been a part of him ever since.
Dan Karcher went down for the preliminaries Sophomore year, but to his great surprise, artistic talent
and a love for the beautiful were not sufficient to cinch the leading part in even such a mediocre show as
" The House that Jack Built," so he took a place among the farmers in the chorus, and made a huge hit
as being the most natural one in the bunch. Dan liked it, because he had a good excuse for not shaving
for a week.
" Captain Kidd, U. S. N.," in which Tom Donaldson, the only bright man in l99, made the home run
like a man, though as he said, he felt like a Kidd, had a good share of Nineteen Hundred's talent, for besides
Oliver in the cast, Arthur Wilsoii, Schamberg and Rich appeared to restore the confidence of the rest of the
class in the fact that there was still some histrionic ability left.
Our class has been composed of such really hard and conscientious workers that it has been impossible
for us to ind time to grace Cor disgracej the casts of the shows Very much, and so when Senior year came
along no one was surprised to find that " Mr. Aguinaldo of Manila " was to go before the public without a
naughty-naught in the cast. Several of our quondams were there, notably J. Kid McCormick as Naldy, and
Lin Taylor as Willing Hunter, a prototype of Herlock Shomes, and they do say that if "PoorU Rich had
not been so busy playing Lucinde in the French play and bluffing his profs, he might have been brought
down to the rehearsals in the evening by his nurse and have learned a part.
In the chorus Arthur Wilson made his perennial appearance, and Stauff Oliver, tired of receiving
bouquets as a cast member, and not having to work anyway, as he had won an election to the Club as an
undergraduate member, condescended to take a position as a pupil in the nrst chorus.
Three years' practice in the chorus and weekly Cso he tells usj pan'-singing Cdo you hear Zhafj in a
choir down Jersey way, had so strengthened Rich's lungs that Charley Gilpin and the other powers
behind the mighty organization, asked him to sing " Coon Songs " this year as a specialty. He did and the
receipts at this year's show were the largest since 1893, and he was not in college then. It may not have been
his fault, but both he and the girl who sent him flowers think it Was.
Though the list of Nineteen Hundrecl's histrions in the casts of the four plays may not be large, it
was due to our class that the hnal casts were so good. Everybody knows that the 'Varsity football team
would be worth nothing it' it were not for the scrub, and that's where we come ing our men took all the hard
knocks and polished up the real cast, and then got none of the glory.
Then there is another view to take, which is the view that Clayt McMichael and the rest of the older
Mask and Wig men present to the chorus when they want to give the latter a good jolly to make them feel
as if they were something. This View is, that the Mask and Wig shows are really nothing but beautiful
stage pictures Cthis is said with rolling eyes and outstretched armj, and it is the CHORUS Cthis with a
wink to the castj which makes the picture.
If we take this view, the honors are ours with ease, for any one who has been to the Mask and Wig
shows knows that all the chorus movements since '97 haveffbeen led by 1900 men. The best and largest
volume of sound has come from the throats of 1900 men, and the daintiest and most graceful dancing in the
pictures has been done by the same 1900 men.
We must not forget what we may call the aftermath of the shows, the Smokers and the shad dinners
that the chorus and cast have run up against in these four years, for here again, as gastronomic prodigies,
1900 men are again in the van. Then there is the back door from the Opera House to Riegel's, how many,
many a 1900 foot has traced that path, though always steadily, for here yet again our men are invincible.
No class ever had more fun out of four years in the Mask and Wig than we have had, and there is
nothing about college where a man can have more fun than in the Mask and Wig.
Right is the man who sings:
" Why is there only one Mask and Wig? Because, there's only room for one."

HE Gun Club is a select circle of men, etc., who meet about once in
so often to try
half-shot, talcum powder and Henry Clays Qpigeons
and cigarsD down below South Street Bridge. '
Down there, out of harm's Way, they tire many a useless shot
into the circumambient ether and try to impart a deeper shade of indigo to
that same on Ending that they have missed the baby. Most of the members
are those who used Daisy air rifles when a very little younger, but a few
were devotees of the slappy crutch, so when they came out to college they
thought they ought not to drop all useful and healthy outdoor exercises,
and joined the Gun Club.
The Gun Club has just within this last year obtained the
valuable lands below South Street, mentioned, at a great sacrifice,
and they are Well worth any sacriice Con the part of the owner
to get rid oi themj. With a Vista of city water pipes stored
a commodious high-fenced garden on the north, an
enchanting View of the transient stucco buildings of
the Export Exposition on the west, a graceful curvilinear trestle which serves as a background to shoot
'againston the south, and the gently 'ebbing and flowing odorous Schuylkill on the east, happy is the 'man
who can ally himself with such an organization with such a transcendently beautiful situation.
The clubhouse is by far the most graceful piece of work that ever met the eye, with one of '99's relics,
the smoky stove of Ben Parish, safely installed in a corner to renderlife miserable. Surrounded by air perfum-
ing weeds and full of chinks to permit the easy ingress of the voracious mosquito, life in or near- that house
is a dream, but such a dream as is superinduced by sleeping heavily and suddenly on a straight diet of lobster
salad, ice cream and plum pudding with a hot lemonade ehaser, in short, such a dream as one can mount and
ride away on. ,
To be sure, they could get rid of the mosquitoes by lighting the stove, but by lighting the stove they
had to get rid ofthe house, and for a week after a smoke out they hated both themselves and their clothes.
As the path from the bridge is hedged about by burrs, every match ever held on the grounds was
delayed many minutes by the necessary separation of the participants from their attached burrs, for you know
one can't take good aim while he is trying to remove by imeans of his right foot an irritating burr from
the calf of his left leg.
In spite of all these small hindrances pretty steady practice has been indulged in and several rather
important matches have fallen Cafter being shotD into the hands of the Gun Club. ,The Club might have won
many more matches, if they had not always practiced with safety matches, using no shot, for fear of losing
the precious birds. They do say that in practicing for live bird matches they had a trained pigeon a year or
so ago, just to see how a real bird looked flying from a trap, and one day some new member, who must have
been a regular chucklehead, put in a real shell with lead shot in it and broke the pet bird. The stupid mem-
ber did not have his initiation fee returned Cfor he had not ,yet paid ity but he was tearfully though firmly
dismissed from membership.
Igoo in the Gun Club has been a regular circus, as the only member we had was Arthur W. jones of
Germantown, who only joined the club to have his picture taken on the same plate with "Oley" Paul,
and never paid his dues or attended the perennial meetings.
In his younger days Art went by the name of "Annie Oakley the 2th,H but his hand and eye, as well
as his mind, had become misplaced through playing cricket, and Art was not as good a chute shooter as he
had been. Then besides as Dame Csome spell it diiferentlyj Rumor has it, several of the members of the
team, on account of his name no doubt, thought Art was a Co-ed and refused to let him play on their meadow.
If it had not been for these sad facts IQOO might have been the ruling factor of the Gun Club and
Intercollegiate Gun Club matches might have been ours with as monotonous regularity as they have not been.

SIG - ITUR ' AD 'ASTRA
cc F you do your duty by Philo, Philo will
do her duty by you." With these words,
one Friday night in October four years
ago, was concluded the welcome to the
Class of 1900 into the ranks of the fine old Society
then eighty-three years old. It was a critical time
in Phil0's history. The heroes of the early nine-
ties had gone-the Ashhursts, Hinckleys and Morses
-the leaders in Philo were passing away with the
years and a little-known Freshman class was to fur-
nish recruits to ill the depleted ranks and was to
supply the men who should at .no far distant day
succeed to the posts held by the McKeehans, the
Marks, the Brintons and the Eastons of the time.
It was a moment when Philo-conservative, bound
by bonds of timeadrawn tradition to letter and to
law-had to nominate its sons from the Class of
IQOO, and had to name those who were to share the
responsibility of bearing onward its peerless name.
How well that class has done its duty by Philo let
thesbffew words suffice to show. How large was
the return made by the Society, methinks one can-
not estimate. Its influence will be an abiding pos-
session with its members, deepening with time,
bearing fruit in all their literary and oratorical
On that October night, then, the die was cast.
Nineteen hundred was to take her place in Philo.
Yet even here conservatism forbade venturesomeness.
But Easton knew of a compliant brother of his in the
Freshman Class and William Hastings Easton was
duly initiated. Then came Folz and Tryon, and after the former had won his spurs in the annual debate
with Zelo and the latter had charmed the Society with his deep-voiced, clear-visioned. utterances the portals
of Philo were opened wide and IQOO went trooping ing and by the time ,97 had graduated, our delegation
was second to none in the Society in numbers and influence. Now be it understood that we never hesitated
to share the honors of leadership with the Class of '98. We learned from McGrath and Brinton, Easton and
the Langstroths, wherein the duty of Philo men consistedg but when once '98 had passed away there was not
so much as a cloudless mist dimming the sun of IQOO'S radiance in our celestial spheres. It isn't of much mo-
ment what occurred before our rule was absolute. The record book of '98 contains an account of what we
helped that class achieve, and any palaeographic historian who cares may learn of those prehistoric times in
the library of those antique documents remaining unsold at the printers.
By the fall of '98, Riddle, the honey-tongued orator of the West 5 Davis, the poet of another
world- at any rate his poetry isn't like anything on this earth,-Kellam,round as Hanna, oily as Quay, astute
as Hill, and Frescoln-a wit like unto a bundle of dried fagots-had all joined our ranks and we were pre-
pared to advance our lines. The situation was something like this, For years Philo had been giving her
intercollegiate debaters, notably McKeehan, practice by annual contests with Zelo 5 but so regular had been
victories at the cost of so little effort and preparation, that far from being of any avail for practice prior to
meeting Cornell, the all too easy Zelo debates had actually proven a detriment from the over-confidence with
which they inspired our representatives against the wily Ithacans. Something radical was needed. We saw
that we could hope for little improvement in the calibre of Zelo's teams. All the good men were coming to
us, only the Elocutionary cast-offs were joining Zelo. Something radical was neededg that has already been
said, now let me add that'Riddle had determined to walk in McKeehan's shoes, and two or three things
radical were needed to make a good fit and brush off the dust of a couple of unfortunate walks Charlie had
taken. Finally the following plan was devised, and, as things always go in Philo, being devised was
immediately executed. VVe would retain the Zelo debate because its abolition by us would entail the
destruction of a Society which depended on the coupling of its name with ours once a year to secure a position
in the college world, but henceforth none but Freshmen i11 Philo would be eligible for the team to debate
Zelo. In the next place we would accept the challenge from the Loganian Society of Haverford in order to
give Riddle the practice he wanted for his intercollegiates. But right here is where the astuteness of
" Dick "' Kellam came into play. Said he : " If we put forth all our powers and crush the men of Haver-
ford in our first encounter with them, in terror they will flee all future contests with us. Now I suggest that
it would be a strategic policy to pursue if we permitted the Loganian Society to win the hrst year and by
thus giving them confidence, enable us to use them hereafter in preparation for the 'Varsity debates."
Dicky never made any suggestions in Philo, except that he be made Moderator that were not adopted,
and he was made Chairman of our Board of Strategy and given charge of the whole campai n. He cer
tainly deserves great credit for his generalship, for he arranged that on this team designed to lose Tryon
who was the only worker should act as alternate, while Riddle who was the only orator should eschew ll
preparation so that defeat might be assured us. Even then the judges declared they were able to award us the
defeat only after twenty minutes' discussion and the noting of a line scholarly smile of su erciliousness N l

sat down. But however clearly our Sherloclcian Dean saw through our deep laid plans the entlemen t

Haverford were quite taken in by our strategy. With hopes raised by the victory we gave them and all fears
removed by the confidence it produced, poor souls-guileless innocent they marched straight to d f t th'

collegiate debates l'l F l ' ' ' ' '
, w 116 o Z, as the silent partner thereof, rose to the dignity of membership in the team
that talked against Michigan.
But there are
other events in Philo besides the inter-Society debates. It is permissible to talk at length
on them because the general public is already well aware of all details connected with them, and nothing could
b d . 1 . . . . . .
e a ded to its knowledge of the subject. It is not so legitimate to discourse freely on the hallowed customs of
our Society meetings. However, there are literary exercises-so-called by way of contrast-at which Dan
Karcher used to etherealize on art after attending the Browning Society's gatherings, while the iconoclastic
Fleisher used to destroy all our ideals and all metrical rules in harrowing reviews of what occurred at our
last meeting. The weekly debates were originally intended for' swift specifics for sleeplessness, and heaven
knows how surely they worked until thatfinan Cadwalader joined the Society and stirred our souls with his
passionate appeals for the restoration of everything that was coated with the dust that deposits with disuse--
a sort of inelfectual Gabriel witha trump of brass trying to resurrect an age of gold. Yet it was on the
debates during the business meetings that we lavished the resources of our arts. Parliamentary law was then
observed mostly in the breach, then it was McClellan would bring his mathematical head into play and with
his nineteenthlies and his twentiethlies draw forth sighs of regret from all the under classmen because the
lacked the volubility that knew no limit, other than the turning off of the current at II p. m. by the college

planted his slippers on the floor and his right hand in the bosom of his coat and in measured words would
berate us for all the deficiencies his inventive mind could conceive, then too it was that Allison Gaw would
crackle forth his Words of sage advice, paying unconscious homage to his prototype-the mysterious, awe-
some, dried alligator that reposes on a velvet covered board before the Moderator's desk.
And now our day in Philo is over. There never was a class Whose record there Was equal to ours.
In literary lines six of the seven W If If men of the class were Philo men 5 the seventh would have been
had he ever at any time during his college career attained a height of three feet six. Not conducting a
museum We had no place for Mendey. In debating We had representatives on two inter-collegiate teams,
While we were the first class to undertake contests with the societies of other colleges. Best of all we kept
untarnished Philo's name for earnest Work and enriched the traditions of the Society by our Wholesome
innovations. We entrust to the Class of 1901 the grand old Society moving steadily on in the eighty-seventh
year of her existence, strong in her heritage of a glorious past and conndent in her expectation of a no less
creditable future. Let the under classmen learn of her Ways, drink deep of her Wisdom, and apply them-
selves to the preservation of her customs, her traditions and her fair name as did the men that have gone
before them. To them We say : " Sic itur ad astra."

THE ZELOSOPHICI SOGIETY
HE greatest campaign speaker in the Class of ,QQ was Parry and he was in Zelo g the greatest news-
paper man of ,QQ was Pugh and he was a Zelo man. Many a sleepy night they spent thinking
of the Society as it might be after their graduation, but much to the relief of their anxiety, 1900
presented to the Society, Stern, the orator, and Craven, the journalist. Nor do we omit to mention
Saul, who has a head which Mr. Bryan needs badly now. Mr. Bryan asked Uncle Sam to rent him the White
House for four years and lie was refused, while Saul did not ask for but took the presidential chair of Zelo
to himself and held it firmly for four consecutive terms, and no college paper blamed him for breaking away
from the golden tradition set by Washington. He is a great scholar in administration, and everything he
learns in the class he puts to a test in executing the affairs of the Society. It was at the end of our Soph-
omore year when Parry retired from the presidential seat and became the leading speaker from the iloor. To
cope with him an opposition party was organized under the guidance of Stern and Fisher and they formed
a trio of debaters hard to beat. Debates, however, were not the only interesting feature of our regular meet-
ings, but on the contrary great attraction has always been found in the literary part of the programs. Talk
about the versatility of Franklin, Craven is a regenerated Franklin. He is at once a book critic, a poet, a
journalist, a historian, a musician and an artist of no mean ability in decorating books and carving tables.
As a critic Schamberg stood as his rival, but as a poet he was the poet laureate of the Society.
He was much impressed with the remark on the English language by His Excellency Wu, the Minister
from China, in regard to the diabolical way of spelling words, and ,he took up his pen to show His
Excellency what can really be done, and composed a poem which makes the author of The Phz'!isiz'ne guess

objection to him is that he speaks in rag time. This shortness, however, was more than made up by Boswell
Liverright. This last is an elocutionist and toe dancer, and his appearance on the platform has always been
a signal for wild applause. Beside these men of ability, the Society was highly benefited by the presence
of Blakely, Grayson and Taylor, three more graces from 1900. Every branch of activity of the Society has
been under the leadership of men who wear two zeros,
We are now to leave our literary Society. We regret it, but we have no reason to worry about her
future as ,QQ men did, because we have established the solid foundation for the Society's future and we trust

Jim was so very, very busy that he poured out precious little of the ink from his ink well on the matter but
studied for his debates and let his hardworking assistants, Frazier and Mendey, do the work.
Frazier, alias, and familiarly, Ben, was supposed to be theassistant editor-in-chief Qgenerally written
without the -istantj, but if he felt tired and had to go play golf or marbles, all he had to do was to give
Mendey a quarter, and Mendey would find a subject, write it up and every one would blame jim Riddle for
it the next day. i
After J'im's foot had slipped, however, and he had missed defeating Michigan in debate, he came back
to the Sanctum and sat with his feet on the desk and his hair disheveled telling the board all about theory
and practice of journalism. There he stopped, at the telling, no one ever saw any theory in that big room
on the third floor of Houston Hall, still less any practice unless it were practicing going to sleep on hard desks.
The Pemzgylwvzzkwz, both in a news way and a literary way, has never been distinguished for enter-
prise, and the hasty haste that characterizes the ordinary journalist is never found in any board member.
There were fourteen members of Nineteen Hundred who were put on the glorious stali, and all we have
to do is to look at a list of them and we understand the manner of their selection. Any man who signified
his intention of trying for the board was examined physically and mentally, if found wanting promptly
accepted, and if found robust, either immediately rejected or put on probation at some demoralizing task
to break his spirit and stamina. If a healthy man could prove, however, that on a search for' an item of news
he could play six games of billiards and miss the professor he was sent to interview, his case needed only
proof that he could neither write nor read good English and his position was won.
The long list of Nineteen Hundred's men who were the support and hope of Pennsylvania's greatest
daily, started back in january, ,Q7, when Ned Townsend, W. C. T. U. Remington and Ed Rich were all
taken on the board, Ned, because he could loaf so fast, Bill because he was so conscientiously sincere and
wrote such good articles on the Y. M. C. A., and Ed principally because he had a good vocabulary which,
however, he never used. '
Hewitt was already on the paper as an assistant business manager employed to muddle Saggy's books,
for he had been left tehind in ,Q9,S rush for Sophomore year. Stanif Oliver and Duncan Whelen next were
added to the staff to write society notes, Stauff for the north of Market column and Duncan for the sacred
precincts on the lower side of the Great Divide.
Ninian Cregar came on some time in our earlier years because he needed a quiet place to get a decent
sleep, and Biddle Saul thought that Zelo was getting too much of a roast from the Philo element on the
board and came on to counteract such a pernicious tendency.
No one can remember how Mendey got on, but a clue has been suggested in the fact that one day
some one forgot to leave the key in the door and Mendey came in through the keyhole. Before he left, as
Lengthy Langstroth and others in the class behind us can testify, a hole in the Wall as big as a house was
needed for his diminutive n1ajesty's case of enlarged cranium. Mendey was the only one who ever made any
money out of the paper, at all events.
The talkative Upson and the gentle Rice were on the list of the Pe1znsyZwnz'zn's star aggregation, but
they were never very radical and were handicapped by the fact that they came in the game rather late and
did not have a chance to get in the running.
Wliat a horrible mistake, ffzmnzbzg, NEVER, just a slow and gentle walking, But 1900 ran the Penn-
Sj'!Zl6Z7ZZ.6l7Z, they ran it well, and if tradition had not tied them down, and the shades of departed conservative
editors had not haunted them, who knows but that they might not have joined the Associated Press and have

The Corner-Stone Placed in Position by General Miles
" I1 the Triangle"
HE entrance of the Class of 1900 into Penn was marked by the opening of the Dormitories. It was
something new, quite an experiment here, indeed, as was the class itself, and both have proved to be
a grand success. But it was rather discouraging at the start. Mumford had assured us that everything
would be ready for us at the beginning of the college year g that our rooms would be furnished and
ready for occupancy. He had also arranged with a laundry company to do our work Cnot college workl and
give us 25 per cent discount just because we were students. Behold the advantages of a college education I
It is almost needless to say that when we arrived we found not more than one chair in our rooms and had to
match dollars-it might have been pennies, for one grows forgetful of little things like that after learning so
many great things during four years at college-for that chair. We also had the experience of sleeping on
the springs of our beds the first night. We thought ourselves lucky to have beds. The next day by going
through any open rooms and picking up things here and there we managed to obtain our full quota of furni-
ture. As for the laundry company, our sheets, handkerchiefs, etc., could not stand the pace. On the second
lap they looked as if they had been uudertrained so we withdrew them and sent them to a laundry that didn't
give a per cent off.
At first the fellows didn't know just what to do with the dormitory life which had been so hastily
thrust upon them. They didn't know each other very well yet, auid sort of looked awkward generally. But
they finally managed to pass away the time by calling at the office about twenty times a day to inquire for
mail, much to the delight of the clerk. As the football season advanced, however, the custom of having
meetings in the Triangle to cheer up the team was inaugurated. This drew the fellows more together.
These meetings were centred about the Arcade steps and here the fellows would gather, bring out a little
band which always insisted on playing a little prelude to the " Red and Blue," a thing which invariably
threw the fellows OE the tune as they didn't expect it, thinking thai band incapable of doing such a thing,
and then after a few Hoo-rahs, with Ra-ra-ra's and Whz'sfeey-wow-wows on the side, the speakers of the
evening would be introduced. They were generally the Coach and Captain of the team, members of the
Faculty Athletic Committee and others interested in our athletic welfare. Probably the greatest demonstra-
tions we have had were those last year when the team was losing and the one held after the Harvard game
of '98, when our colors were lowered by the Crimson. " Ma " Upson, 'oo, was the! chief mover in this
demonstration. All the Faculty athletic advisors were there and made speeches. We were particularly stirred
by the oratorical edorts of Mr. Iohn Bell. He told us how, when he was in college, Penn never won a game.
But that they had gradually graduated men who were no good and had taken in men who were better and so
they won from Princeton in ,Q2. Defeat overtook them in '93, but the victory of ,Q4 showed that they were
not to be stopped in their upward course towards glory. And that now the defeat at the hands of Harvard
should act in no other way than as a stimulus to greater deeds of valor. He then made a sensational Hnish
by introducing Coach 'Woodruff as, " nature's noble-man." But Upson spoiled it all by coming to the
front, and saying: " Fellows, let's give a Hoo-rah for nature's man." This is quite like Upson. He meant
well. The demonstrations of last year have no especially distinctive features except that the greatest enthu-
siasm and devotion was shown for the team. The result of them all has been to waken in us a spirit and love
for our Alma Mater and her teams, which was not seen here before.
Although many little things have happened that might be worth the telling in a more detailed account,
they must be passed by here to make room for two really .important events in our dormitory life. These were
the laying of the corner-stone of the Memorial Tower and the " Night Shirt Paradesf'
The corner-stone of the Memorial Tower was laid on the afternoon of February 13, IQOO. The tower
is built in memory of those students who lost their lives and those who enlisted in our army in the war with
Spain, so we had General Miles here to oliciate and many more men noted in army circles. The day was
rather unpropitious for ceremonies conducted in the open, It was a good deal of a puzzler. One minute it
would seem to clear up and the next minute would be showering for all there was in it. A regulation Feb-
ruary thaw had also just occurred, so that the ground, especially the grass plots in the Dormitory Triangle,
were not in fit condition to be walked upon. As the classes gathered in front of Houston Hall, the sun was
shining brightly, so we all left our umbrellas and mackintoshes at home. The trouble began when the City
Troop rode up. Charley Page, ex-'oo, is a member of that much apparelled organization and with all his
paraphernalia on looked as competent to manage his horse as any other gallant trooper. But appearances
were deceiving. All went well until " Easy " Davis appeared with his ever-present flag and his red and blue
muflier. The horse positively couldn't stand this and started in to do stunts. It was plainly apparent that
Page was worried, so a number of his ex-classmates kindly volunteered to tell him how to manage a horse.
All our advice was of no avail, however, and he was hnally rescued by several other troopers and taken in
charge by them until the affair was over.
After the usual delay the procession began. We all lined up along each side of Hamilton Walk and
waited until all the dignitaries had passed by and then fell in behind. Everything was orderly enough until
we approached the south gate of the Dormitories. Here a number of Deuts, Vets and Fresh thought they
were going to get left, so they made a rush for the gate and as the walk was crowded already they attempted
to cross the grass plot before mentioned. The attempt of many was in vain. A few deserve great praise for
getting through in safety. The first menathat got on the grass did not sink in above their shoe tops. But
after they had struggled around for a while the mixture of grass and mud became very much stirred up, and
determined to get even with all intruders for spoiling its innocent good looks. A scene of great activity
ensued. Everybody was taken in at depths varying from the shoe top to the knees and only escaped by
hrst lifting one leg out, and then the other, and keeping up the good work until they reached the walks.
Some, whose feet were larger than the average, could only escape by unlacing their shoes and leaving them to
their fate while they escaped shoeless.
The ceremonies proper had now begun and at this point the rain took a hand in the performance.
Every time anyone attempted to do anything it would rain, and as soon as he had Hnished, the rain would
cease. It almost broke up the affair by obliterating the written speeches of the various participants, but
thanks to the umbrella loaned by Mr. Houston, the end of the ceremonies was reached in safety, and the
corner-stone was laid by General Miles. As soon as all was over it cleared up beautifully, but not one of us
heard a word of a speech.
The " Night Shirt Parade " was a rather spontaneous outgrowth of existing conditions. On the even-
ing of May 2, 1899, all was quiet in the Dormitories, as the fellows were now getting down to work to prepare
for inal exams. But the quiet didn't last long for in one of thefrooms the Architectural Society was having
a smoker and now and again there would be an awful roar of laughter. It's hard to tell why they
laughed, for it isn't probable that any ,QQ Architect could tell a funny story. The fellows stood this as long
as they could and finally they came to the windows and began shouting advice, and other things to the
Architects. Then some one yelled : "All out I " and they all came out. While they were standing around
in groups discussing the affair, an ex-member of 'oo suggested that we have a night shirt parade. No sooner
was the word spoken than some of the group chased into their rooms, and in less time than it takes to tell it,
a member of 'oo appeared in his night shirt. This was a signal for men all over the Triangle to go for theirs,
In the meantime, a Proctor had come out to see what was going on. Mr. " Proctor" is a nice ladylike man
with a nicer ladylike voice. He really doesn't know how to handle fellows as he has been used to teaching
Q0-eds over in the " Bi." We saw this one fellow in white and made for him. The fellow chased into Franklin
House with "Procter" in hot pursuit, but when he arrived at the third floor, the fellow had disappeared. "Porc-
tor " then made a careful canvass of the rooms, and while in one of them, the fellow slipped downstairs. By
this time quite a crowd of fellows were out in the Triangle in their " nightees," and when " Proctor" arrived
on the scene he found he had more than one man to deal with. He sailed in valiantly enough, however, and
commanded all to go to their rooms. The fellows asked, that since they were out, they be allowed to remain.
"Proter" said "no I" and started taking names. That was too much, and some one made a dash for the hose,
then playing on the grass. At that, " Porcter," thinking " discretion the better part of valor," retired to the
safety of Dr. Singer's room.
The fellows after doing stunts on the Triangle, proceeded to the old athletic field. Here they produced
wood from nowhere and soon had a monstrous bonfire going. Then began a number of dances, cake-
walks and rings around the fire, making a scene very weird and ghostlike. When they got tired of this
they settled down and everybody had to dance, sing, whistle or make a speech and " swear allegiance to 'de
Gang,' " to stand by any one if he got in trouble over the affair. The " Parade 'l then ended up with Penn-
sylvania songs on the Arcade steps.
Nothing serious came of the affair and the authorities recognizing that it would be a good thing to
start as a Dormitory custom, permitted it to come off this year. A great deal of preparation was made for it
and wood was prepared for the fire. About eleven o'clock the fellows began to assemble until almost all in
the Dormitories were out in their night shirts. Then the ceremonies of the evening were begun by the planting
of ivy by the Arcade steps, and dedicating it to the Class of Igoo. johnny Gardiner delivered the oration and
it was a masterpiece in'its way. The only trouble was that he couldn't remember it very well, and the
applause of the fellows at appropriate as well as inappropriate times, sort of threw him olf his balance.
But he was rescued from his perilous position by his Freshman brother, who stood behind him and read it
to him, and then he told us about it. It ended with several beautiful little stanzas, the last one of which was :
" Ivy, that perhaps another
Sailing o'er 1ife's rugged main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked student
Seeing, may take hope again."
We shall hope that the ivy will have such an effect on a student in such a condition. For, alas ! how
many come tacking up the walk against the wind, and meet shipwreck on the Arcade steps. May
they be able to see the ivy that they may take " hope again ! "
A general walk-around now ensued, and finally all repaired to the old Held and the fire was started. Per-
formances similar to those last year took place with the exception that only the Freshmen were called upon for
speeches, songs, etc. This they did right willingly CPD, being Freshmen, although a journey around the fire
on a rail was sometimes necessary to give them inspiration. A high hat was also discovered, and was per-
suaded to tell us a few things. The ceremonies were adjourned shortly after to the Arcade steps and songs of
"Old Penn " were sung. On the whole the affair of this year was a great success, although the fellows did
miss " Procter."
The tendency of things like these is to stir up that college spirit which is such a necessary adjunct to
all college life. Movements are continually on foot to foster it. One of the most laudable of these at present
is the scheme of building a rail fence in the Triangle, Where the fellows can congregate in the evenings and
sing the songs of Penn. That the efforts towards increasing this spirit may continue and that many new and
wholesale customs may spring up to make dormitory life and college life at "Old Penn" more pleasant, is the
fervent wish and desire of the members of IQOO.

of the exterior, that we can readily forgive the Freshman who once innocently inquired Whether the
building in question were the printing establishment of the Red and Blue. To us who have been
privileged, during all or part of our college career to enter thrice daily its mysterious precincts, this ediiice is
irreverently yet aptly known as the " Hash Foundry," notwithstanding that the catalogue, with misleading
unctuousness designates it as the University Commons. Rumor states that in the dim future, a palatial
dining hall will form part of the completed dormitory system,-but that's another story, and we who have
faced the grim realities of the frontier, in these early years of the settlement of the' wilderness known as the
Old Field, shall have memories only of the original Hash Foundry, where " Mom " Lipton ruled in power
Once formed, the Hash Foundry habit is hard to break, and though occasionally some desperate son
of Penn, tiring of goat mutton and string-beans, departs for a time to try his luck at Heuser's, or strays after
false gods in Locust street, in the majority of cases he eventually returns to the " good cheer," and says
he'll roam no more.
That mine host Lipton is a wizard and a hypnotist in the art of juggling the menu, is an undeniable
fact. With a dexterity beyond belief, he is able to transpose, accentuate, abbreviate. elaborate, and other-
wise warp the dozen or fourteen stock dishes within the repertoire of the cook, into so many pale blue
mimeographed variations, that the unwary are led to believe the gamut of the chef 's achievement theirs, at
three-fifty a week, and that boarding at the Hash Foundry is after all a gastronomic symphony. For example:
bean soup, a homely dish withal, and yet paraded as follows: Monday, bean soup, Wednesday, puree of
white bean 5 Friday, puree at la Jackson, etc., etc.
Lipton sometimes arouses partisan feeling by such announcements as: Salisbury steak, baked ham at
la Chamberlain, lobster cutlets with Roberts' sauce, and other reflections denoting pronounced Boer sympathy.
We suppose that he does this with a view to promoting friendly discussion and debate amongst his guests.
At the time,of the Exposition, great consternation followed the appearance upon the " score card " of "Puree
a la Mongolian," for this came almost simultaneously with thefilisappearance of several Chinamen from the
Midway. Not less disconcerting was the item so blurred in writing that it read, " Chicken Crowgutsf'
Tuesday and Thursday evenings we shall always remember with joy, in that we then received, each,
his concavo-convex sample of ice cream, which looked little, and was less, on account of the void upon the
under side. At dinner, on Sunday, this dessert was elaborated by the addition of what was catalogued as
"cut " cake. Whether or not this referred to lecture absences is a question.
Of all the exhibits placed before us during our course in this museum of indigestibles, the daily Qand
Sundayj string-beans will live longest in memory. Nobody has ever been known to eat " Mom's " ancient
and honorable string-beans. At least, the horrible ends of those who have done so have been effectually
conhned to the hospital records. The beans in question must have seen service in the Mexican war, and how
their perennial hue is preserved from generation to generation, except by the occasional use of Paris green in
the boiling, is a poser. ,
The dissatisfaction of the inner man is not the only purpose for which we visit the Hash Foundry,
however, for there we find relief from care, in the contemplation of continuous variety of no mean order.
" Mom" is unquestionably the' Queen of Vaudeville, and entertains us in a "weigh" all her own. Her
star act is doing the walk-around, to spot him whose temerity has led him to work the waiter for a second
sample of pie. On this tour she is also wont to stand upon the neck of any waiter who may have demolished
by accident his tray of cast-iron plates. At such times Mom's conversation is cerulean.
By far, the most favored of the pastimes of the Hash Foundry is that of bread throwing, and some of
our number have developed great skill in this, notably Kellam and Upson. Yea, even Upson, who should
know better, being upon the committee of Hash Foundry investigation. It has been noted by the more
observant that immediately following a bread riot, the principal article of dessert is bread pudding. The
conclusion is foregone. Then, too, there is the performance of " Who was George Washiiigtoii ?" usually
suggested and actively participated in by Sypherd, at which time the Lipton china and glassware are up
All things considered, we are glad that we have faithfully bucked the old stand through thick and
thin, and that by so doing we have received such forcible precept as will never permit us to forget that we live
not to eat, but eat to live.

REAT events require great preparation. The Trustees and Faculty ofthe University, early in the last
decade, began to reiiect upon the approaching rnatriculation of Nineteen Hundred, and upon the
responsibility devolving upon them to make our University career pleasant and profitable Qnotice
the alliterationj. W'ith this end in View they erectedjthe Harrison Chemical Laboratory, the Hous-
ton Club and various other new buildings, but they crowned their work when they completed the new Uni-
versity Library. I can well remember the irst day I visited the Library, in company with a fellow who had
been there once or twice before. 1
" Fine looking building," was remarked, as we stopped to View it for a moment before we entered,
U architecture striking, but rather peculiar."
" Yes," came the reply, " Saracenic in style."
" Oh! Semitic type ?"
The other fellow nodded, and we passed on into the vestibule. We were about to go upstairs, but the
other fellow said: 'KNever mind that now. There's nothing up there, except curiosities-Semitic, you
We wandered on into the main reading room and past the alcoves. " Separate classihed collections,"
said my guide, in explanation, Waving his hand toward the latter. " Convenient to have them close at hand
for quick reference, Semitic and otherwise."
We approached one of the librarians and entered into conversation with her,-always a favorite pas-
time with Nineteen Hundred. Some large, unwieldy packages were being transferred from a wagon
outside, to a small room on the right. We remarked upon their size, and the fair one answered: "Yes,
they're increasing the Semitic exhibits, you know."
And so it went. At last, just as we were about to leave the place, we noticed two large columns,
rising one at each end ofthe room with curious figures and human faces " sculped " upon them.
" Semitic, of course," I said confidently.
" Of course," answered my friend, and then, as he raised his eyes to the small placard above, " No!
Why, say, these are American! From Central America! "
We looked at each other for a moment, in speechless amazement, and then silently left the room.
And it seemed, as we passed him, that the bust of old Ben Franklin over the door, looked down at us with a
cheerful smile, as if he would say : " Yes, my lads, and I'm another! "
This was but the Hrst of many visits, and during our Freshman and Sophomore years we became very
well acquainted with the books, the alcoves, and-the librarians tfemininej. But nothing striking occurred
until the beginning of our junior year. Then, when we returned from the midsummer vacation, we learned
that various improvements had been made and that our Library was in a fair way to become ideal. We found,
on inspection, that individual reading desks had been erected, a new head librarian had been appointed, a
new Museum had been built for the accommodation of the objectionable Central American columns, which
had been removed to a safe distance, and finally that rooms for the study of the Semitic languages had been
prepared on the third iioor. And placards covered everything ! Every possible emergency was provided for.
We were told which books were reserved and where, how to use the card catalogue, what to do if the assist-
ants could not find the books, and if we " swiped " one of the signs, just how long it would be before another
would appear in its place. Every little while, the new librarian would rush out of his office and frantically
measure the desks and walls with a little two-foot rule, and then we knew he was trying to find a place to
put another sign. The only sign that never appeared was: " N o student shall talk to any one librarian
more than twenty minutes at a time," but we are expecting that daily.
This remark has probably aroused the readerls curiosity. Alas! the writer cannot satisfy it. He had
planned to tell how one fair-haired youth, after assisting one of the librarians in a prolonged search for a
missing book in an alcove, was seen to emerge with his hair parted, for the first time in the history of the
University, and obstinately refused to tell who supplied the comb. And sundry other secrets we know, but
from all sides has come the plea: " Say nothing about me in the Library, you know. What would my folks
think P" So the lips of the oracle are sealed. Let all fond parents who may glance over this article, remain
confident that Meir boys, at least, were attracted to the Library by literary tastes alone.
One curious incident attended the removal of the curiosities to the Museum. The room previously
occupied by the " stiffs " tin vulgar parlance, mummiesj was partitioned off, and in accordance with the mania
of the architect for inscribing improving moral sentiments upon the walls, a suitable motto was found for the
new glass surface. It reads thus : " There is small choice in rotten apples."
There has been much speculation with regard to the intended use of this room. Some have suggested
that it was intended as a librarian's office-but perish the thought! That remains where it always was.
Others have said it was to be a reception room for visitors. If so, visitors have always felt a certain delicacy
about entering it 3 and so it remains bare and empty, in silent testimony to the fact that there are no " rotten
apples " within the precincts of the educational orchard.
Only one thing of note has occurred in the Library since our Junior year. During last vacation the
books were " recataloguedf' We don't know exactly what this operation consisted ofg we only know that
something happened to the books and to the cards that tell where the books ought to be found. It was the
last-the supreme step required to make our Library ideal. We did not appreciate this at Hrstg we had to
sit down and study it out. But we can now see that when every prolonged search in the card catalogue is a
valuable exercise in seltlcontrol. And we know that if a book asked for is not immediately forthcoming,
it is not because the assistant cannot find it. No! It is that thejunwary youth has asked for a book that is
not Semitic, and is being given time to repent, before it is too laie. And so, even for the ideal recataloguing,
we feel that we should be thankful to the mighty brain which conceived the project and the Minervan wisdom
which presided at its execution.

I I t' There is work and success for the men of every kind and degree of gift, not alone
f room at the top, as there always was, but all the way up 3 not only for the best things
N ofthe best men, but for every man's best." : : : 1 : : : : :
l HE character of the instruments and appliances used by the dentist, reflect the character of the man. lf
l they are of poor quality, ill-chosen, carelessly looked after, you can safely predicate shiftlessness of their
' owner, and as safely prophesy that he will never reach the heights where there is " always room nl' that
fx he is likely to hug the bottom of the ladder too closely to ever get far away from it. lf, on the other hand,
his ofnce outtittings are of Hne quality, carefully selected, and kept in order, both as to condition and place, for
4 immediate use, you have the indications of a man with the elements of character which should place him with
The S. S
the leaders of his profession.
lt is our business to help the dentist who wants to win the highest success in life possible to himg to help
him to do his best. Our way of helping him is to supply instruments and appliances of the best quality made.
There is no serious question anywhere as to the superiority of our products. It is, to be sure, quite common for
the manufacturer or salesman to say of this or that instrument that it is "as good as White's," but they only say it
for effectg they know it isn't true. They also know that when a dentist buys our products, he gets loo per cent
of the best quality known to the particular line or lines of dentists' supplies included inthe purchase.
This is our point: We sell no inferior goods. Everything we make, everything which bears the
trade W mark,-and that includes practically every article the dentist uses in his business,-is made the best
we know how. Our knowledge ofthe subject is the accumulation of fifty-six years' experience in manufacturing
dentists' supplies. Our motto has always been what we believe every dentist should have for his device: "The
Best is the Cheapest." As an example of our care that nothing shall receive our trade-mark which is not at to
bear it, every instrument we make for regular stock-not samples out of each lot, but every individual piece-
is subjected to tests far beyond any strain which should be put upon it in actual practice. The products of our
factories are not delivered direct to the storeg they have nrst to pass the inspection department, thus assuring
that the store-the selling department-shall receive none but perfect goods. We have reasons for our confidence
in our goods. We know what they are.

EN the play of Macbeth, Shakespeare makes Banquo
, demand of the witches,
"If you can look into the SEEDS OF TIME,
And say which grain will grow, and which will not,
Speak then to me, who neither beg nor fear
Your favours nor your hate."
Had Banquo lived in the year Igoo, he would need no witch
to tell him which seeds will grow. He would just take down
his Burpee Farm Annual and make out his list. Banquo's
garden in the spring would then make the mouth of an ancho-
rite water and turn his neighbors green with envy.
Banquo is dead: but you are alive. Get the BEST.

Thousands of young men have paid their
college expenses by selling Stereoscopic
Views during vacations. The sale of Stereo:
scopic Views has educated thousands by
reason of the very large profit to be readily
made by canvassing. Doubt it? Come, let us
convince you by unassailable records.
Agents of other view publishers have no doubt made efforts to have you work for
them this season, but every U of Pa. student has the exceptional advantage of being
able to make a contract direct with the Publishing House, right here in Philadel-
phia, instead of paying sufficiently more for other views to pay the salary also of the
" smooth-tongued solicitor," who by securing your services reaps also a substantial
commission on every order you place with his house.
You can reach our ofnce and factory in fifteen minutes and contract in a few minutes
more for a supply of our up-to-date Views, which are as good as any published, and
better than most of them twe leave that to your own judgment after seeing theml, at a
much lower price than an Agent who solicits your patronage can possibly offer you.
You deal direct with the Manufacturer, as we can convince you in two minutes by
calling at our establishment

Fine Houses Made to Order, for Protection Against Flies, Mosquitoes, Dust, Etc,
You can keep your house free from fly-speaks, and can light your rooms at night
without admitting a host of insects. Probably no money expended upon the hxtures of
a house will make so large a return in saving repairs, and in comfort, as that paid for
wire screens. They save more than their cost in il single year by keeping flies from dis-
figuring the interior of a house, its decorations, lixtures, etc. The simple manner in
which they are constructed enables their being sold at prices much lower than are
usually charged, while at the same time, a neater, better and more durable article is
furnished. Our Screens are put on slides to raise and lower, the same as the windows,
and can be used for the upper and lower sash. They do not have to be removed to open
or close the blinds.

easily satisfied cuss." "Because I love you." "Because I

Riddle and McClellan." QCregar.j "So I can have the ex-
quisite pleasure of hearing Karcher speak." "I would do
anything to miss the gang in Igor." "Because I met
