A 2 fe'+B3wf?"? Not Purposeless l sat one day where the breezes blew, A song that only the forest lfncwg The stately pines and the nodding oalg A language strange and mystic spolfe: l listened a while and softly said- While the sun shone flown on my mossy bed- mlnrees of the forest turned to the slip. Who planted you here on the hill, and why?" Then the mystic music mellon: came, l A silent, fitful sigh: "You aslg me for my father's name. You aslf the reason why? On the lop of a hill, in a dark-some wood The Spirit planted me here for good!" l looked for a while at the placid breast Of the lisping lalfe in silence dressed: The birds dipped down on its cooling tide, The lilies lwrighl on its shoulder ride: The spring sang its song as it came from the moss. And the vine crept up where the branches crossed l loalferl for a moment. then asiged with a thrill: Nloalfe, what mission have you to fill?" "The life on my shore is wild and free And it needs the help I give: lsend my stream to the surging sen. l help the ocean live. l am nature's mirror and home and food, And the Spirit planted me here for good!" The years have fled and the day forgot When the woodland told me of what was :mtg Now that which was not had come to be - No more calm lalfe and singing tree: A But storied wall and stately tower Rose over the place of nature's laower. The night was spangled with stars of man, And an army marched through the streets of Ban. "How came you here, fair college old?" Anil the clarlf 'walls made reply: "I am food to the faint and warmth to the cold, And l draw my dew from the sky. l reach to the sea and l glass the wood. For the huilder built me here for good!"

He is the proud possessor of a lyric tenor voice that marks him at once as a future grand opera luminary. At the Glee Club concerts the heart of many a fair damsel has been won by those beautiful high tenor notes. He is a man who takes himself, as well as others, seriously. Has a quiet, serene, even temperament, and is a good student. Always carries a cane on the Glee Club ltrips. "Bag" is a star player on "Capt" Elwanger's volley ball team. If he goes about his life work with the grim determination that has characterized his college work he is assured of success. 34 GIZD2 Slither DUDLEY PLEASANTS BGWE RICHMOND, VIRGINIA APPLICANT FOR B.

ECAUSE he has been able to control the financial end of almost every organi- zation in college, this man is generally known by the fondly characteristic appellation of Dudley "gim-me-a-dollar" Bowe. His tact and diplomacy is well illustrated by the fact, that in spite of all these natural obstacles, he is one of the most popular fellows on the campus, and his influence is felt in almost every phase of college activity. He possesses that rare and enviable ability of extracting the "fIlthy lucre" from the purse of the all but spendthrift students with a grace that leaves the victim impressed only with his 'pleasant relief. I-le is able, yet un- pretentious, lirm, yet conciliatory, and enjoys the enviable repuation of a thoroughly representative college man. "Say, how about that dollar for your picture?"

NVAS on the eve of the winter exams. It must have been about nine o'cloclt, when through the crisp and silent air there was wafted to our ears the smooth and melodious tones of a violin. Upon investigating the cause of so sweet a disturbance of our hour of repentance and atonement, we beheld a scene on the forbidden side of the lake that thrilled our hearts with admiration. There was Russell standing under an arc light, majestically moving his bow over the strings, while blowing his breath on the other hand, in an attempt to protect the lingers of the inspired musician from the benumbing cold. Russell is a capital student of unusual ability and has closed his career at college in a blaze of literary glory. These articles that have been appearing in The Messenger all the year -under the name of "E.maya l..esBow" speak for themselves, and it is unnecessary for us to add our word of praise. However, "Emaya" is no one else but "that Bowles fellow" who is always late at the Refectory! 36 Gtbe Spine: MOSES LEWIS BREITSTEIN RICHMOND, VIRGINIA APPLICANT FOR B. A.

ERI-IAPS the most salient characteristic of Buford is his non-conspicuousness. ' Amidst all the disturbing forces of college life, he has followed a course of study which is remarkable for its regularity and assiduity. Neither the "other side of the lake" nor politics have tempted him from his systematic routine. Buford is particularly interested in political science, and those of us who frequent the library can testify that he has been most faithful in the writing of his term essays. I-Ie is one of the most pleasant fellows in college, and he possesses that rare and enviable quality of knowing when and where not to speak. 38 Ghz Sniffer ROBERT LANCELOT BURRUSS LAHORE, VIRGINIA APPLICANT Fon B.

However, we must not think that all his energies were directed along these lines, for surely the path from Dorm. 2, across the lake, has received the impress of his dainty step more times than we care to enumerate. The truth about the matter is We once began to wonder whether he was attending Richmond College or Westhampton College.

Class of Nineteen Sixteen-the Junior Class 'tis now-looks 7' WJ back upon the first three years of its career in Richmond College M J It l with pride. From that dreary, rainy day in September, l9I2, QW, when we, one by one, some with the clover dust and turnip tops X of the city "prep" schools, came seeking the road which leads QCD' W EGP to the halls of fame, we have been climbing the ladder of success. Our numbers have diminished but our achievements have V4 .4 txt, Y 5 v, -156 hardly oil: of our clothes, others with all the polish of graduates JM ,A. ,Mil increased. We would not be boastful, but we would claim our dues. We are unable to think of a single college activity in which our class has not taken a large part. In athletics we have six "R" men. The man who so successfully managed our championship football team the past season was a Junior. This same man has the distinction of bringing more athletic men to our college than any other man in this student generation. We would also speak of the man who will lead the 1915 gridiron warriors to victory. For three years our captain has been one of our hardest and most dependable fighters for the Red and Blue. And please do not forget the chief rooter, who, by the way, is also president of our class. Think of the service he has rendered to old R. C. by leading the yelling hordes, whose encouragement has sent the stinging Spiders into many a hard-fought battle and cheered them on to glorious victories. The historian believes that the Richmond Collegian is the greatest student institution started for several years. Give proper credit here to a certain member of our class, the editor, without whose untiring efforts its success would have been less certain. He tells us that from our class its full share of co-operation comes. The Spine: 63 Especially fortunate is our class in having been able to live in two kinds of col- lege life. The old Richmond College, Where We spent our "Rat" and "Soph" years. was in the midst of a thriving business city, where we could see that side of life' in all of its activity. Now we have spent our junior and are to spend our Senior year away from the noisy city, where amid the pine trees and the mud just above Westhampton Lake, we can enjoy what seems to us real college life. Another change is the giving up of "co-ed" life with the opening of Westhampton College. We most heartily greet our sister college " 'cross the lake," and believe that we all like this co-ordinate life better than that under our old system. Certainly the Westliamptonites have added to our enjoyment on the many social occasions, and the Juniors there, who we remember used to be in our class, are holding their own. As we have been in college so we expect to be when we go out from its sacred Walls, workers in the various fields that call for those who would make the most of life. Teachers, journalists, men of commercial life, ministers, and even on "the far-flung battle line," where men are striving to uplift men, will be found those who once rallied behind the old Red and Blue with the Spiders of nineteen sixteen. A JOSEPH ALEXANDER LESLIE, JR. TAZEWI-:I.L, VIRGINIA Phi Kappa Sigma: President funior Class: Mu Sigma Rho: Clee Club: Colillian Club: Manager Track Team, 75: Dramatic Club: Lightning Club: Blue Ribbon. There is always so much to say about the most popular men in school. Joe is a wonder. The girls all say he is cute, but We say he is "all there." Joe is some politi- cian-a will-0'-the-whisp as it were. l'le's running for the post-office now. Don't leave your girl in his carehe be- lieves in every man for himself. The girls all love you and so do we. A shark at dancing, oratory, love letters. any- thing, sir, served immediately. "Aesthelically drunk"- President of the class. Ghz Svpiuer WALTER KENDALL ALLEN SALISBURY, MARYLAND Y. M. C. A.: Pbilologian: Improvement Medal, '12-'l3g President College Prohibilion League, '13-'l4g Asso- ciate Editor "Messenger," 'l5: President Maryland Club. "W. K." is one of the noble few who do things without crowing. Some of the "big" guys will find some clay that he has carried a lot of their loads-and myl you don't even know he is doing it. He wants to teach Africans how to grow strawberries and be as economical as well as Gocllike- in the dark continent. Who has not seen him munching bread from a hidden poclcet while musing of trained nurses and Greek? KIRK BROOKE ANDERSON RICI-IIvIoND, VIRGINIA Pbilologian: Y. M. C. A.: Manager Football, 'l4: Biology Assistant: President Sophomore Class, '13-'l4: M. H. S. Club: Athletic Editor "Messenger," '13-'l4: Football and Track Squads, '13-'l4. "Brooke" is the embodiment of enthusiasm and sincerity. If he says he will do a thing, it is as good as done. "Brooke" has his theories and troubles, but he is always accorrfplishing something. A veteran football player, one of the best man- agers "The Spider" eleven ever had, a true sportsman, and a "swell" fellow, we think. He will choose Hades on ac- count of the athletics there-his "hobby." WILLIAM HERBERT BAI-ILKE BALTIMORE, MARYLAND Pi Kappa Alpl1a:'Varsily Traclf Squad, 'l4: Y. M. C. A.: 'Varsity Club: Maryland Club: Chemistry Laboralory Assistant. "Brownie" Bahllce-he holds the world's record for leg- length and pole vaulting. True to the race of "Brownies," he Hits in and out among us so quietly and so utrippingly on the toe" that we really "know not of his goings out, and comings in." Brownie whispers around the dorm. to see if Dr. Olmstead has heard his latest remark. A member of the "Newton Crew" in "C" and by no means the silent partner. "Brownie" and "john Bunny" change clothes. The Spina 65 , WILLIAM HARVEY BARLOW BROOKNEAL, VIRGINIA Y. M. C. AJ Philologian Literary Society. Barlow's only likeness to a snail is that his shell carries him around. If you can break through that armor-plate, my what a nice place inside. Harvey never troubles anybody till somebody troubles him-it's worth the trouble. We have caught him unaware out of his domicile and we sincerely liked what we found-a gentleman. Then, too, Barlow is a grind. Member of Barlow, Wyatt, Inc., Marriages, Funerals, etc., at any hour. WILLIS HERBERT BRANNOCK CAMBRIDGE, MARYLAND Y. M. C. A. Cabinet: Philologiang Debating anal Forensic Council: Associate Editor "Messenger," 'l4g Presi- dent Freshman Class, 72. "Verily, if thou meditate in the heart the death of a Soph., thou art guilty." Brannock combines preaching with insur- ance and thereby violates the Sabbath. NW. I-I.'s" tongue is so slick and smooth it would slide all around "Boaty" and prove him almost anything before his very face-hence the reason for the constant appearance of his name in the Collegian's society column-"where the fellows preached Sunday." JOHN ARCHER CARTER SUTIER, ILL1No1s Phi Comma Delta: Mu Sigma Rho: Editor "Collegian": Clee Club: Quartet: Cotillion Club: Mandolin Club: Associate Editor "Messenger": President Dramatic Club: Lightning Club. "Nick" is a genius, and incidentally a very popular man. As editor of the leading weekly of the day, he repre- scnts his Alma Mater magnificently. Grit?-why, that's Nick's middle name. I-Ie says things in his paper that the Faculty are afraid to think. Everyone looks for a leader of leaders in this man. A keen eye, a keener brain, and keenest thoughts characterize A. Carter. Already a worthy rival of O. Henry, he will be the cause of pride among the SPIDER5 some day in the fact that he was with us. Another killer? Glibe Smihet JOHN THOMAS COBURN EASTON, MARYLAND Y. M. C. A.: Philologian: Executive Committee R. C. A. A.: 'Varsity Football: 'Varsity Club: Captain 'Varsiy Football Team, 75. "Co" is one of our fat men-and a preacher, what? His middle name is cal, and, from his use of it, we presume he likes that better than the others. "Co" furnishes an example that a preacher on this campus can really he a man. We think him a great fellow. His udoggonnittn on the gridiron sounds much worse than our A'l"'!'5!'5l"'l,5l Football keeps "Co" from being champion fat man of the world-my! he can play. WALTER EMERSON DURHAM APPOMATTOX, VIRGINIA Pi Kappa Alpha: Philologiang President Y. M. C. A., 755 'Varsity Fotballp Track: Executive Committee R. C. A. A.: Associate Editor "Messenger," "Collegian," 'l5g Business Manager "Messenger," 'l5g Field Day Medal, '12-'l4. "Durry" is a representative college man, a prince of good fellows, an enthusiast in everything. Everyone who has noticed him on the gridiron knows the complexion of true manhood, yet-"Durry" has no celestial wings. Visit the emblazoned plaster-cast of his dainty foot fhe broke his ankle killing Yellow Jackets, you know, to see if he is popular among us. The best President the Y. M. C. A. ever had. ALBERT THOMPSON ELLWANGER Wirr, VIRGINIA Pliilologian Literary Society: Y. M. C. A.: President of the Chatham Training School Club. Who has seen the broadest of broad smiles wandering over the campus on two enonnous legs?-that's part of "Tooth- piek." But, there is much more. A modest, bashful giant, gentle and harmless, with a heart which fills his huge body. Oh, yes, "EHininger" has the distinction of being captain of the SPIDER volley ball team and for years has been the front- ispiece of Spaulding! Volley Ball Guide. Coach Dobson doesn't like "Eli" to chew a toothpick more than one month. Ghz Shiner 67 DUNTON JACOB FATHERLY WEINWOOD, VIRGINIA Kappa Alpha: Mu Sigma Rho, Censor, Sergeant-at-Arms: Y. M. C. A.: Tidewater Club. "Father"-we wish it were "Bringing Up Father" to our altitude. "But "Father's" derby, trousers and coat look just like a real man's and they most assuredly belong on a real man. Quality rather than quantity, let us say. "jeff" is heartbroken since "Mutt" Davis went away. "Father" made the best Sergeant-at-Arms that the Mu Sigs ever had, on account of the ease he experienced in handling the big men. A lady killer? PHILIP WINFREE FORE RICHMOND, VIRGINIA Kappa Alpha: Assistant Manager Football, 'l3: Assistant Business Manager of "Collegian": Cotillion Club: Bachelors' Club. Who says "Winnie" is not a killer. an idol with feet of clay? "Winnie" was goingto be a doctor until he saw an operation and we hear he swoonecl into forgetfulness imme- diately. He is in lover-ah! "nameless here for ever more" since "Trotter" Bagley got on the job. Then "Winnie" is also a politician-shl ask him about football managership- see him laugh, grow serious, laugh again, and-change the subject. A town student of Calico. J. H. GARBER WAYNESBORO, VIRGINIA Pi Kappa Alpha John is a great ladies' man. We are surprised at the liberties he insists upon taking in their presence: for instance, on one occasion he was out of funds, and he sat by the way- sicle and endeavored to sell "hot-cross buns" to the girls from Wesdmampton. That's all right, John: it was profitable business, wasn't it? QFD? gtlliillet SAMUEL H. C-ELLMAN, LL. B. RICHMOND, VIRGINIA .Senior Lan: Prize, 'I3-'l4g Critic Mu Sigma Rho, 'I4g Associate Editor "Messenger," 'l5g M. H. S. Club. Now here is a lawyer and a winner of the law prize toc young to practice. Shame on Virginia. Some day he will astound the judges of America with Gellman's Extracts from Cellman's Principles. What is that noise? Oh! Sam has dropped a nickle through the Hour of the student shop and is striving to obtain damages by law. You can only get two and a half cents, with interest UO per cintj, Sam, be- cause a coin in the hand is worth two under the Hour. Re- member, Sam is not responsible for his younger brother. A. J. GOODMAN GUINEA MILL, VIRGINIA "Doctor Harris, that is as far as l have read." This is Goodmz-m's favorite expression in Greek, we understand, prob- ably the translation of a sentence. At any rate, we would like to have a little variety. When you return to college next fall bring us a breath of fresh air from the big farm. WISTAR HAMILTON, JR. LYNCHBURG, Vmcmm Philologiang Y. M. C. A.: Clee and Mandolin Clubs, 'IZ-'l3g Treasurer Sophomore Class, '13-'l4. Whiz-something has Hashecl by us. Oh! "Rat" on his bike. He is also famous in aviation through that marvellous flight from the third story of old Del..and.Cottage to aid his beseigecl Freshman classmates. "Wist" is a guardian this year he has a Rat brother in college. They are renowned, this pair, as great church workers and will inevitably become "sheep" some day. ' Gibe Spiller 69 RALPH CLIPMAN MCDANEL ' COVINGTON, KENTUCKY Kappa Sigma: Philologiang Declaimers' Medal, 'l4g Critic, Secretary, Asst. Business Manager "Messenger"g Clee Club: Y. M. C. A.: Assistant Manager Football, '14, "Mack" is one of the guys who insists on the serious face. the Solomon stuE, but "Sparrow" has been passed by the National Board of Censorship. "Mack's" middle name is "Work" fsmile, l you, smilej. I-le goes to col- lege here, we believe, but we hear that he lives down on Lom- bardy Street. He is indeed a great declairner-we do hope it will serve him in excellent stead among the Lomhards. VICTOR SHARP METCALF RICHMOND, VIRGINIA Kappa Sigmag Mu Sigma Rho: Colillion Club: Scrub Football Team, 'l4g Class Baseball: Richmond Acad- emy Club. 4 "Hugo" has taken to strong drink and hlondined his hair. All human beverages now weary him-his palate craves sulfuric acid-he'll tell you the formula-V. S. M., Con- sulting Chemistl. Beware, young man. Some say you will cash in with delirium sulfurcns. The pluckiest of football players, "Victim" of a broken nose, son of a D-eane, ye Cxods et pisceres, what next!--a perfect gentleman withal. "Vic" chews tobacco? PAUL GOODE PERDUE RICHMOND, VIRGINIA Zeta Xig Manager Football, 'l3p Inter-Fraternity Council: 'Varsity Club: Lightning Club: Bachelors' Club: Richmond Academy Club. "Boss" Murphy, Sonny jim, Terpsichore--there we have Pete. He would now be a surgeon cutting people instead of capers and classes, but he cannot bear to leave us. just a tip, "Pete"-managers should never buy three derhies, four suits, fIve pair shoes, an overcoat, a maclginam, should never smoke cigars and chew gum during a prosperous month of the football season. We have your number-ah! how could we do without you and your smile, "Pete"? Ghz Spins: P. L. MITCHELL ANOKA, MINNESOTA "Mitch" hails from Minnesota, and can tell you wonderful stories of that far-distant Gocl's country. "Spider" Hurt says he is a wonder. the nonpareil. As a matter of fact, all loyal "Spiders" have a warm feeling for "Mitch," and believe the "Cap" will help largely to bring victory to the l9l5 Basket-Ball Team. ' G. W. QUICK FALLS CHURCH, VIRGINIA This fellow was surely ill-named, because he wouldn'l hurry to get out of the way if he saw the smallpox coming his way. "Mike" Hutchison will probably tell you that he is quick to see a joke, and Dr. Anderson may admit that he is quick in evading questions, which seem offensive to "Senior," That's all right, "Senior," you're there with the goods, when it is time to deliver them. j. A. SAVEDGE LITTLETON, VIRGINIA "Dick"-a nickname transmitted from an older brother- isn't considered much of a ladies' man around here, but if re- ports be true, he is proverbially guilty of urushing calico" in his own home town. He is becomiirig a good debater, and ably defends his side in the Philologian Hall. Ghz Smilies 71 G. T. TERRELL ASHLAND, VIRGINIA Chorister, debater, preacher, these are Tyler's leading characteristics. The inmates of Section C, Dormitory 2, are often disturbed from deep study by his soothing and melodious voice. They tell us that he has the power of filling his church on Sunday, if he announces beforehand that he will not sing a solo. It is as a debater that Tyler has won most renown. We are glad he will be back with us another year to support the Red and Blue. H. G. WARINNER RICHMOND, VIRGINIA This is one of the best-natured fellows on the campus. If he is studying for a test, and you want to borrow his notes. Henry immediately hands them over to you. You would think him a football star, if you looked him overg but he has not yet shown us his ability along this line. We hope he will do so before he leaves college. HENRY OSWELL WVYATT MONTAGUE, VIRGINIA Y. M. C. AJ Philologian Literary Socielyg President Fork Union Club. An artist of note, a singer, and a senior member of Wyatt, Barlow, Inc., Marriages, Funerals, etc., at any hour. A man born with a nickname. "Rally Polly" is Captain of the Fork "Onion" Contingent ,and may be seen at almost any time drilling his usquawl-:ward "ad" for the European War. This youth preached two sermons at' the Soldiers' Home and EVE men died the next day-hal hal Hedoes well, you see, as Father Time's Tourist Agent.

A nnual Representative History i'C.TgT?:Lf.Sf HE Class of '17, the last "Rats" of the old campus, came out on the new campus as great a bunch as ever. Indeed everything was as quiet as the tranquil lake until the Sophs began to meet each 5-Ixfl ji other. After a good "hug" and a "howdy" all around, we tcok fb a look about us and lo! to our astonishment, what do you think we saw? "Rats," "rats," "rats"-it looked as if they would Q,QffL'2QiC never stop coming. Several rather casual glances were cast among the fellows. But glances did not end it for several "rat exterminatorsu were on the job quickly. A call meeting was held in the vice- president's room and an elaborate reception was planned for these intruders. YV hen the evening had been decided on, committes on regulations, securing paddles, enter- tainment, place for reception and invitations were appointed. At last the evening came, the third after the general influx was over. All "rats" had turned in, some had extinguished their lights, but in accordance with their cus- tom for the three or four nights since they had been in college, did not disrobe or do any sleeping. The "whole bunch" had adopted Hwatchfull waiting," for things were in the air. About l2:30 the Invitation Committee proceeded to the rooms of intruders and invited them in a most informal manner to prepare for the reception at once. Did they come? Well, I guessg it looked as if the German army had been suddenly mobilized in front of Dorm. 2. GED!! Spilltt 75 With "gentle" Sophs on either side they were marched to the athletic lield. Here they were given certain regulations as to college life. Yes, they will never forget them, for we were satisfied that "impressions" had been made. After the famous "scrambled egg" stunt had been given on the lawn near the Administration Building, they were allowed to go to their rooms. Every "Rat," as he left the lawn ran between two lines of Sophs, each having a paddle. After the Soph "reception," the next interesting event was the Rat banquet. The banquet hall at lVlurphy's rang out with the merriment of the young college lads and lassies, but not so great as the yells of the Sophomores, when the rats returned to the campus. However, we surely have to hand it to themg they had a swell affair. The way they managed that reliects great credit upon the class. The truth about the whole matter anyway is, we don't think there be any Rats quite so fine as ours. We are becoming more proud of them every day and instead of extermination it is now admiration. The class is very well represented in the athletics of college. We have foot- ball, baseball and track representatives, and for the coming season 'l7, furnishes both manager and assistant for the upigskin kickersf' In the lecture room and general collegiate work, we have striven to keep step with our fellow-workers, and are considerably encouraged by the general progress of the class. Although we had spent but one year at the old site, we learned to love every inch of it, but since we have come out to Westhampton we wonder how we ever lived elsewhere. We complete our second milestone perhaps somewhat weaned, but with Hne purposes and a strong determination to finish the race. With the unlimited oppor- tunities and advantages which are ours, we are resolved to start l9l5-'I6 with that "come-back" spirit which is becoming one of the characteristics of every loyal Spider. The year l9l3-'I4 was one of great beginnings for us, l9l4-'15 an insight to what the beginnings have opened to us, and I9l5-'I6 looms up before our horizon as a further insight into those things which will enable us to obtain the larger and better things in life. Therefore farewell, good pastg welcome, ye present, and right well, O future, do we anticipate thee. HISTORIAN. I6 dtbz Spitler STEWART GEIL.

" 9' predecessors, the Rats, who entered the new college ln the fall of nineteen fourteen, were about the meekest set of would-be humans that ever trod a soft and nervous foot upon sacred college soil. Green? To call them that would be to do them individually and collectively the Vilest kind of injustice, for they were so ignorant and unSOPl-listocated that they made the color green look very pale pink. Of course, they all addressed the old men with an air of the lowest varlet in the kingdom, being graciously permitted to do homage by a plaintive greeting to his liege lords. And soon the "Ratcaps" made their ap- pearance. Striped skull coverers of brilliant red and blue were immediately pro- cured by every Rat on the grounds, be he high and mighty or lowly and weak. X And so things moved along A very smoothly for awhile and 1' X M I Q the older men began to think HQ" fy ' A that they had a very meek un- :-' -2? :f i ' obstreperous bunch of kittens to K handle, and so they acted sl if-25: l E accordingly. Every night the Rats were given a "reception," u.,.J,.,5,Lr1 Strange to say, the ennui of so many social events actually made the Rats shun such enjoyment and after awhile it was hard to Hnd a Rat who wanted to attend any like function. Of course, the greater part of them were invited and they attended-willy nilly-though it pained them greatly sometimes to leave their studies. The Hrst exciting rumor that floated around the campus after the Christmas holidays was that Senator Pinner had found his long lost razor, sharpened it up and hacked off the two months' growth of underbrush which had been obscuring his smiling-countenance. This bold, reck- less deed so changed his appearance that all the Rats took him to be one of the 86 Ghz Spitlet "Board of Copperplatersf' and began to take off their hats to him. Following closely on the heels of this upset in the daily routine, came the vague and mysteri- ous whisperings that "the Rats were going to pull off their banquet this Tuesday night." Ah, how the news spread, just like the bunch running for the car. And sure enough, when the fateful night came all the Rats were decked out in their best bibs and tuckers and forth they sallied in groups of fours and fives and sixes for the hotel and the big feed. While there they imbibed so much lemonade that they all imagined that they could lick the whole Sophomore Class with one hand tied up. In just such hilarious spirits they boarded their "special car," which left town at the last moment and amid songs of harmony UD and many a boast of what they were going to do if any one bothered them, they journeyed out back to the campus. Meantime, the Sophs had not been at all slothful. They had on the contrary, been wide awake and they had prepared to fix things so that the Rats would remain wide awake all the balance of the night. In a body they marched over beyond the Administration Building and lined themselves up in two long parallel lines on either side of the long dark path, leading from Stop 30 to the dormitories. In the last ten minutes of waiting not a man was allowed to so much as strike a match. When the Rats at last did pull in at the stop, the Sophs were ready and eager for their arrival. A great many of the impudent Rats had ladies from "across the pond" hanging lovingly on their arms for support. In a long column, two by two, the Rats marched down the path, and ah ha, little did they reck what awaited them. The "murmuring pines and the hemlocksn seemed innocence personified to the joyful unsuspecting throng that merrily strolled and half danced down the path, singing such hymns as "We Won't Get Home Until Morning," and others of like strain and dignity. Suddenly, without the slightest warning, the most barbarous, terrifying shrill war whoops rang out on all sides of the Rats and motley hordes of dark forms, yelling like wild hyenas, bore down on the frightened Rats, who stood huddled together in wild terror with their feminine companions about to faint in horror of the evidently horrible fate that was descend- ing upon them. On and on came the ambushers and then they closed down upon the defenseless rabble of Rats who knew not what to do and with one cruel 'F if 'F QNOTE: The rest of this article might betray valuable information to the common enemy, and so it has been struck out.-CENSORJ ::::::::::::::gi-ee-----Lg- ..........zz:azz::::::::zzz.::azzz:::::::::::::::::z::::::::::::::'T""i" ::::::::::::::::::::::::t::::1::::::::iEiiiEfiEi U 'umm' I .1 799' ., 5' :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::,gigzzfffg--:gr-3,355:mgggggggggggggggggg A 'J ----'---'-' -- Ghz Spina Freshman Class Officers MERCER O.

FRESHMAN CLASS dtibe Eminem 91 History i.C,HT?:Lrsi1HE Freshman Classlof IQI4-'I5 was the largest which has had the honor of entering Richmond College. Each member swells with pride when he remembers that he is the one-hundreth part XX, il ,' of the first class to begin its course upon the highway of learning 55 in Greater Richmond College. Our existence, as a class, began on a bright September day and it shall never be forgotten in eiglnf the minds of our band. We read the word, "Welcome" upon the face of each one that greeted us, but the greeting longest to be remembered, was the one so cordially extended by the Sophomore Class at that hour of midnight, shortly after our arrival. Barrelistaves aided our hosts in mak- ing their welcome more impressive. Upon this occasion we were given the rules andfregulations of tradition to guide our infant feet. When it was announced that no "Rat" could cross the bridge which leads from our campus to the realms of bliss, each "Rat" received a sickening sensation above his upper left vest pocket. This warning issued, We were paddled to bed, and the following day resembled the morning after the night before. The Mother Spider then began to weave for us the golden web of knowledge, and time passed quicker than the weaver's shuttle. We found new buildings and were requested to leave each just as we first looked upon it, in order to give the generations yet unborn an opportunity to drink at the same fountain of wisdom. We found noble customs gathered around the new home of the college. There was spread out before us a glorious history and we determined to emulate the virtues of those who had made it, by which we hope to leave behind us equally praiseworthy examples. Of course, we had an election and the tactics would make some of the most experienced politicians sit up to take notice. Then came the jaunty little Rat hats made of red and blue. These alone solved the problem of distinguishing between ourselves and the dignified Seniors. The caps were seen in great numbers at the football games, where we had the pleasure of cheering our owsm classmen on the gridiron. The games were fought and wong the laurels of victory equally shared among the victors. Our spoils were not small. No Freshman Class has discharged its duty to the school until it has a banquet. In order to add to the pleasure of all concerned, our sister class at Westhampton, went 92 The Spina into partnership with us. All plans were laid in whispers, but history repeats itself and the fair ones let the secret slip. Notwithstanding this, the Sophomores gave little trouble and the event was a great success. As our Freshman year draws to a close, we look back over it with many happy remembrances. While our men were battling upon the gridiron our cheers rang high from the stands. Our melodious voices have disturbed alike the nocturnal slumbers of our protecting and our stick-wielding neighbors. Many times have we been heard from the debating Hoor, but more often as neophytes desiring "food" in the Refectory at meal times. Soon we shall be scattered severally among the "mad- ding crowd." Cur labors and pleasures will differ but each will carry in his heart a deep and abiding affection for old R. C. V. This written history will be read and forgotten but the men who made it shall always remember its making.

MARTIN, 'I6 I-IE Devil sat lazily poking the poor unfortunates of the Pit with IZ cbs His pitchfork. As one would climb nearly out of the molten M J pitch, He would reach carelessly out and give him a shove back W Into the Lake of Fire and Brrmstone, watching the ripples play steaming wavesg He listened with a satisfied grin on His grim countenance to the weeping and gnashing of teeth, perfectly IW 4 ' 4 gl ,Vg e615 on the surface as the victim plunged temporarily beneath the J., -A--'MC COLE' wx satisfied with His work, content in the belief that the torture He was inflicting was the most terrible, weird, awful that could be conceived of by an infernal being. He smiled in His security: Lord of the Hosts of Darkness, for centuries He had with a wave of His hand regulated the activities of Hades with never a hitch, never a dispute of His authority. "A new arrival, Your Majesty," an- nounced a subordinate at His elbow. His Satanic Majesty reached out for the newcomer with an energy prompted by the anticipation of having a new victim, a fresh source of pleasure, another to torment. "Who is it?" He asked carelessly, and His fork made I ll f.,j"'1'?9I a sweep to pick up the stranger. "A Sophomore from one of the Virginia colleges," replied the servant of the King of Darkness. The smile faded from the countenance of the Sovereign: He dropped His fork and springing to His feet He exclaimed, "Why, in the name of common-sense, did you let him in? He will tear up Hell in just about ten minutes. I've an excel- lent notion of sentencing you to the Pit for six months for this!" "But, My Lord," pleaded the offender, falling on his knees, "His papers of admission were all rightg he has more entrance credits than the majority of our matriculatesg he has well justified his admission to the Realm. I knew not what else to do. Your orders were to admit all whose papers were correctly made out, showing a sufficient number of crimes committed on the Earth. Besides, he remon- 94 fitbe Qpiiler strated with me, and said if I refused to admit him he would go back to Earth and bring the whole Sophomore class down here and run the place as it should be." "Of course his papers were all right. you fool. As far as that is concerned every Sophomore practically on earth is admissible technically, but is that any reason we want to lose the place? We are running this place to torment the other fellow, not to enjoy the attractions offered our- selves. Still, if he threatened to rout us, you ' - showed your sense to admit him. I shall re- ' I Ward you. Here, you may punch the inhabi- Zxzlf ,f z fy., tants of the Pit for an hour, while I try, to enter- ,Milli will ,!1,,,, tain this Sophomore and get him to like me, 5' il ,WEEE or else none of us will be safe here." f- Ji' The Devil arose with a sigh and prepared to show the Sophomore the attractions of His Kingdom. The subordinate went to his reward and revelled in the fiendish delight of plying the fork. The Sophomore looked from the one to the other with a wistful gleam in his eye. "Say, Old Top, you got any Rats here?" he asked. His Infernal Highness bowed. "No, sir: I regret to say we shall not be able to offer you that amusement, but," he added hopefully, "I hope we may be able to entertain you with something else. We have spent much time and thought, adding all that appealed to me and my associates. I do you the honor, or rather," he added hastily, "I request the honor of you accepting half interest in the place with me. I don't mind acknowledging that I know you could turn me out and I am willing gi to do an th'n th t I t ' d- ., 'iff 2? ET ? D H y 1 g a can o gain your goo M 1 i E Wlll. XX- 5 5.. 'I ff -.

If I am to accept half interest in these glfgill - A f i holdings, you have got to show me something 1-'S A- 1 better than anything I have seen. Your idea of torture, judging from what I have observed is my ideal of a Sunday school picnic. But still," he gave the Devil a slap on the back and ran his arm affectionately around his waist, "You are a pretty nice sort of a chapg I like you even if I cannot hand your place much." GED! Slliiltt 95 The Deity of Darkness smiledg he was pleased to hear that the Sophomore was finding His company congenial, because He realized that the Pit they had just left was the masterpiece of His art, the climax of all the suffering He could inflict, and He had feared He would be unable to entertain His guest. There- fore His only hope lay in making the Sophomore like Him personally. . . . . . . . . . . . . . The subordinate plied the fork. The awful screamsof the inmates of the Pit rang through the Kingdom. The substitute was carrying on the work of the Devil as strenuously as the Infernal Majesty could have done. Finally, he turned to look over the new arrivals standing by His side. "Who are these?" He asked of the servant. "These are the Rats His Honor, the Sophomore desires," replied the valet with a bow. "They are freshly arrived from the same college from which the Sophomore hails, and they inform me, were there killed by him. You will have a job, I beg your pardong you will find it difhcult, I fear, to interest them. They are used to much torture." The servant withdrew. The assistant smiled. "I guess this place has been satisfactorily harsh for all Eternity. I expect we can interest these new arrivals. Here you," he reached for the Rats, "You get in here and I will give my whole time to you lest you should find it too agreeable." With a shove the Rats fell into the Pit. The flames ran high, the molten pitch boiled 9 the Rats dived to the bottom. The Rats came to the top with a delighted grin on their faces, they spit the pitch from their mouths with a chuckle, they threw a handful playfully at the Sub-Devil, at which time he ran with a shriek to a safe distance. "Finally, Old Top, do you fellows call this Hell?" asked one of the Rats. The subordinate started to reply, but was interrupted by the arrival of the Sophomore around the corner. There was a shriek, a moaning wail, the most inhuman ever heard in Hades. The faces of the Rats turned Whitey their eyes bulged. "Look," screamed one, pointing to the Sophomore. "l..ook!" With a groan the chorus exclaimed, "YES, THIS IS HELL." "What in the Devil is the matter with you?" asked the Rat's bed-fellow. "And why don't you stop kicking me?" "The Sophomore-" The Rat opened his eyes. "Oh nothing," he replied, and turning over went back to sleep. Finis. J7Lm.7' MAJ. BOY5,l THINK FooTBm.n. ru.

The history of an organiza- tion so lately born into the world ordinarily could be written on a postage stamp, but the name itself immediately inspires respect and invites inquiry as to the meaning of such a body. We are not thrust into our class by the adversity of fortune, nor are we the victims of cir- cumstances for the name does not imply that we have forced ourselves into a band of delinquent members, but rather that we are undergoing a particular and pecu- liar brand of training of our own choosing. Some of us are fourth year men, it is true, but that only suggests that they are more proficient in their respective fields of endeavor-we came sshd! 4- to prepare ourselves for professional study, 4? - . and when such prep- aration has been con- ' '3 Ls- - eluded, though we may still be degreeless we shall bear no less love for Alma Mater u because of that fact. We pride ourselves on being a representative body of men, and we invite eagerly any inspection of our records. fthe Spitler 99 We boast, first of all, of five 'Varsity men-Ancarrow, l-lutchipson, Cosby, Robins and Privott. We also possess three Glee Club men and three members of the Cotillion Club. The lields we represent are chieily the ministry and the medical profession, and our number is about evenly divided between these two. There are among us sharks, athletes, speakers, singers, woman-haters, lovers, those who do, those who will occasionally, those who don't at all, and loafers. Almost every type to be found anywhere is in our midst, and we joy in being cosmopolitan. Space is too limited to picture the characteristics of some of our most prominent representatives, but we are of an unusual brand, nevertheless all loyal Spiders to the core. I A V si . 100 QED?

Not "hardest" in point of character by any means, for so far as we know this lad has always led an exemplary life. Last year he put up such an impressive "stall" about study- ing that he was awarded the Junior prize. And, at that, he fully deserved it. He spends one-third of his time sleeping, one-third in coming to college, and the balance is taken up in typewriting voluminous notes and studying ahead of all the heavy class assignments, with a few minutes taken up by cramming in some good at odd times. "Dunny" has a very friendly demeanor and it is hinted that he has some secret political ambition, viz.: to usurp the' throne of the "King of Manchester." Besides all this, his law notes have, because of their peculiar merit, come into more general use in the class than the regular text-books-for which notes we all reverently give thanks-"Dey done us good!" From the bold manner in which he answers back to Doctor "Mac," it is hardly probable that the dreaded bar exam. will be much of a problem for ihim.

ERE we have the inevitable and irrepressible Socialist. The "Duke of Fulton" is a firm adherent of ul. W. W.," which organization has stirred up several rows in the North, but so far he has remained calm and passive in our midst. Duke is sure to disagree most vigorously with any legal doctrine which does not clearly uphold the right of an employee to boss his employer. This em- bryonic Gompers spends part of his time here at the Law School, but most of it is consumed in firing vitriolic broadsides of "dum-dum" verbosity against the strongly entrenched forces of capital. You may totally disagree with a man and yet deeply respect his sincerity of conviction, and so we feel toward Duke. While we may not believe in the radical propaganda he is endeavoring to establish, nevertheless, we are bound to admire his earnestness of purpose and his wholesouled ambition to bring about the betterment of a great class of people. And whether or not he has selected the proper tools for the accomplishment of his task, his labor is not in vain. 7 , 114 Che Qpiher ' 1 " " , , it.

His stolid, clean-cut phy- siognomy impresses the casual observer more with the air of an army com- mander than with the personality of a hard student, one who bones from morn to night and from night to morn. As a lighting little end, whose work was ever a source of sorrow to the other teams, he is well known. As an all-around fellow, who has taken a lively interest in all phases of student activity, hehas no superior, but as a real, dyed-in-the-wool, first-class law bluffer, he must be handed "the dog," for there he shines, supreme in his ascendancy over many others who would like to have the same distinction. With all his peculiarities, we love him very well and we shall shrink from the time that his peroxide pompadour passes out from our midst. 116 i Glibe Quinn CARL HEINRICH LUEBBERT RICHMOND, VIRGINIA APPLICANT FOR LL.

His three years on the Spider team have been literally "covered in glory," and his teammates were not content with having him lead them once and so they re-elected him to the basket-ball captaincy. And, though he did not succeed in again taking the cup, he did so play that he may drink deep from the cup of honor. It is rumored that Heine is to be made a member of the Law Faculty next year, on account of his splendid attendance and work this session.

This boy does everything in such swift order that he has time to go to sleep every few minutes, waiting for the others to catch up. A stranger, observing "Dolly's" habitual rapidity of motion, remarked that he "must be kin to lightning." However, when it comes to law, Judge' Pitt is right in his element. He can be "holding the bag" and find a "hot and cold pig in a poke," while "Chick" is stroking his chin preparing to ask some foolish question. Because of his leisurely manner, "Dolly" is not credited with being a "shark," but when the marks go up, he is always found in the topnotchers, who have found favor in the eyes of the court.

OLLYH hails from Petersburg, of which fact he is exceedingly proud. Not- withstanding this "Polly" is a hale fellow in every way. I-le is not so large in statue, but he is not small by any measure. He was one of the chosen few who succeeded in going through Junior Law without one Hunk. How he did it will ever remain a mystery, but the fact remains-HE DID IT! "Polly" has also accom- plished a great many other things in college about which the same observations might be made. For example, in the big Randolph-Macon game, when the crucial mo- ment was at hand, it was he who tucked the old pigskin under his arm and bucked, dodged and squirmed across the goal line for a touchdown. His winsome smile has captured many a female heart, and then his scornful indifference has broken them times unumbered. But, with all his faults, we love him still, for he has many virtues. The faculty knows him as a hard worker, capable of putting up a good bluff at the proper timeg Coach knows him as one of the best players he hasg the boys know him as a happy-go-lucky, boisterous friendg and the world will know him, we hope, as a success in every way. 120 dlibz Spine: GEORGE IVIEREDITH RANEY BRUNSWICK COUNTY, VIRGINIA APPLICANT FOR LL.

And consequently he occupies a niche in college life befitting to one of such con- sequence. But this is not all, by any means. The professors have such unbounded confidence in him that they all permit him to take charge of all examination papers and "edit" them before publication. One cannot help being struck by the logical coherence with which "George Edward" elucidates any and all problems of the law, whenever called upori and often when not called upon. But say whatever you please, you must "hand it to" George-he is the best- natured man in school.

OI-INNY, after winning his bachelor's degree, came back to his Alma Mater in search of legal lore and his search has been far from vain, for he was one of the few successful candidates at the last bar exam, and he passed after having studied law only one year. I-Ie has always been a leading spirit in the Glee Club, a fighter on the gridiron, a politician of no little success, and now he is winding up his career here as the "Big Chief" of our Annual. He is a man with ideas and he has launched several progressive movements for the benefit of the college that have proven to be very successful. Johnny has had many honors since he has been with us and he has deserved them all. It is rumored that he has been engaged in a very important case in Atlanta. We are pulling strong for him to get the decision. Here goes forth a loyal Spider, who will reflect honor on his college and who will be a leader in his chosen profession, and he carries with him our con- fidence and best wishes. W. L.

Let me say before we go into the cases assigned for to-day that no one can hope to cope with the modern day jurists unless he has 22 in Q19 0 a very clear idea of the ruling decisions in all of the cases that are given out in this course from day to day. Of course, I do not mean to hold that it is at all easy to gain such knowledge, but let me remind you that "there is no Royal Road to Learning" and to fat fees. I sometimes think that the road that leads to the former does not always lead to the latter, and vice versa. Suffice it to say, that we shall endeavor, in our feeble FW Am ' 'hus- " ,,..v V X.. 1 : -sr : Liste? ff "P way, to garner into our cerebral reservoirs as great a quantity of the proper quality of the former substance as it may be possible to acquire in a course naturally so limited by many curves and angles. Mr. Harris, have you the first case? You say you have read it over? You say that you have even studied it? Remark- able! I am very gratifiedlto learn that someone has of these cases. fI'Iarris starts to state the case when you say the complainant wasiseeking here-"Pacific indeed be strange. Though, of course, I presume have all of its decrees upacificallyn performed rather actually seen fit to study one he is interruptedj What did Performanceu? That would that the court would rather than stir up any riots or other breaches of the peace. But now, Mr. Harris, you have rambled at length upon the facts and near facts of this case and suppose that you tell us just what the point is ?" A "Why, Doctor, I-er-er, I don't believe I have ever found it." "Oh fsoft whistlej, I see-not the point-but your predicament. That is too bad! Of course, though, if you yourself have never been able to discover the 'ratio decidendif so to speak, then 'a fortiori' you will not be able to point it out very clearly to the class as a whole. lVlr. Pinner, will you please give us the gist of that case, and please do not waste any time in detailing unimportant portions of the dicta." "Why, Doctor, this case stands for the well-known principle that one who has held adverse possession for a certain period of time has the right to have the title decreed to him. i And-" GED! Qpiher 123 "Hold on there, just a minute. Please tell us exactly what you mean by 'adverse POSSCSSIOIII? You must not scatter such verbiage about broadcast, for we would like to know what you mean rather than that you have been consulting some law lexicon." "Adverse possession? Why, that's very simple, er, er, for instance, if a man holds adversely he would be said to be in adverse possession." "Oh, certainly, to find out the meaning of 'violin,' see 'fiddle' " "Well, nog not exactly, but-" "Well, if not exactly, perhaps then loosely or unexactly, eh ?" "No, sirg it seems to me that a man's common-sense would tell him what that meant. You don't need a lot of book sense to know that. I know some people who have lots of book sense but who haven't got any common-sense." "You don't say so, Mr. Pinner, well, well, well! I believe I can go you one better, for I know some people who not only have no book sense, but who also lack any evidence of possessing the slightest sense of any description. lVlr. James, suppose you state that case for us." "Alright, Doctor, just as you say, although I must admit that I am not en- tirely sure about it." "Oh, just half-way sure, I presume. Well, at that, you will be better off in this matter than your most worthy predecessors, who did not seem to be at all sure about anything." james then starts at the Hrst sentence and reads verbatim the printed statement of the case out of the text, pausing at the end for breath. "Alright, Mr. James, although I feel duty bound to resent the implied slur you cast upon us by reading the case, for I myself have read it over previous to the class. But just what does all that mass of wording mean ?" "Well, Doctor, this man wanted specific performance because he sold a slave to him and before he was able to get that fellow he escaped, and though .he tried hard to catch him and demanded delivery of him he never did get him, so he feels that he has a right against him for the worth of him." "Oh, I SEE. HE did all this, did I-IE? Well, may I be so bold as to ask who HE may be, and also who HIM is?"

"Why-er, Doctor, I wasn't listening." "Um-hum. Well, that was very unkind of you, Mr. Raney, to allow lVlr. James to exhaust every 'he' and 'him' in his vocabulary and yet not to even offer 124 Ciba Spina to keep your receiving apparatus working. I hoped better of you.

O'Flaherty, can you give us any relief?" "Yes, Doctor, I could if I understood the question, but-" "Say no more, my unfortunate fellow, you are worse off than the others. My friend Mr. Ames, of Harvard, used to say, 'to fail to know the answer is bad, but not to know the question is fatalf Mr. Dunford, do YOU understand this case?" "Yes, sirg specihc performance was refused in this case because the plaintiff was not entitled to it." "Quite a natural decision, too, I may add, lVlr. Dunford. Clearly if the plaintiff was not entitled to this relief, the court should refuse it. But did the court refuse it here?,' "Yes, sirg down at the bottom of page 327." "Oh, I beg pardon, I did not know that the court was in session at any such location. Indeed, it appears at the top of the case that this matter was argued in London. Furthermore, as to the court's decision, you are either right or wrong, and you happen to be exactly wrong. On the point of evidence involved I suggest that you find a Greenleaf and examine it as soon as possible. What do you want to say, Mr. Pollard?" "I was about to say that we will see plenty of green leaves in the spring." "Indeed, let us avoid frivolity in this course, gentlemen, though I may say that unless the discerning vision of this class as a whole improves, I have very grave doubts whether or not you will see any leaves of any color. lVlr. Jones, what do you think about the matter ?" "Why, Doctor, I should think?" "We know you should, Mr. Jones, that's just the troubleg but you don't. Mr. Crymes, I see there is no use calling on you for you look almost asleep. Mr. Pitt, what have you to say for us? Render your decree, if you please." "Doctor, I'm sorry, but I have not- prepared the cases to-day." "Oh ho, well, at least you're honest about it, Mr. Pitt, but I warn you that a plea of 'I did wrong, but I'm sorry' is naught but slow suicide. Mr. Gary, as a last resort, what can you tell us?" Gthe Spine: 125 Gary then reads long "line" from last year's book well noted by an old student, but is unable to explain the notes he has just read. "So now, gentlemen, you are able to clearly see, I trust, the evil of trusting to dead men's bones. They are very bad as sustenance in this course. No matter how good the man who pasted those notes in lVIr. Gary's text may have intended, his intentions will make nothing but good paving material for a certain resort of rather high temperature. Now, Mr. Luebbert, you are one of the 'old guardf and perhaps you can enlighten us some on this case through the dark mazes of which we have been rather blindly groping for the past hour. What do you say ?" "Well, Doctor, the only reason I can see for the court's decision here is that it is following the old maxim that 'No one comes into equity except with clean hands.' " "So-o-o! Well, here is a pretty pickle, indeed. 'Clean hands?' 'Dirty hands?' That would truly be a grave indecency which the learned court would most surely resent--" "But, Doctor," chirps in the "Duke of Fulton," "don't you think that perhaps this case was decided so because 'equity regards that as so which ought to be so?' " "Ah, Mr. Duke, you hold out a beaming ray of hope which gleams brightly in the dark and forbidding future. I sincerely trust that the worthy Bar Examiners will see fit to base their decisions in your respective cases on some such maxim as that for then they may assume that since you have all taken this law course and ought, therefore, to be fully qualified to practice before the bars of this Common- wealth, ergo, you are fully qualified. "I have observed of late a deplorable tendency on the part of some of the class to use the small of their backs as their sitting foundation instead of that por- tion of their anatomy intended by nature to fulfill such function. And I should also like to remind you that these solid Circassian walnut seats, donated by Dr. Hard- crust, were not meant as supports for your pedal extremities. I think you can all readily see the wisdom of this. Furthermore, I should like to call to your attention the fact that a court-room should never be polluted with tobacco smoke, either during, before or after court session. If you all used good quality weeds, that would be an entirely different matter, but I feel safe in saying that it does not take an acute nostrilar apparatus to determine that no such state of facts exists here. With these parting injunctions, which are not to be dissolved, but are rather of a permanent nature, I shall have to bid you a fond 'good-morning,' for I note that the moment is nearing fast when the Passenger and Power Company Express will depart on its tedious journey into the village."

directions and expect the while to maintain his equilibrium as it were and I think that the reason of this ruling may perhaps appear more clearly to you if you call to mind the famous old maxim laid down by Justinian in his great work sold by the East Publishing Company entitled Corpus Corpuscles in which he asserts Without any real fear of contradiction that you cannot both eat your pie and have it and I am sure that no one here would doubt the wisdom as well as the scientihc soundness of that rule for it is a self evident fact that if you have a piece of pie apple pie we say or mince if you prefer some people are very fond of mince pie like mother used to make especially if it happens to be seasoned or spiced as you will with a small but sufficient quantity of well aged liquid of Bacchus and as I was saying you cannot take up a piece of pie in your hand and but by the way I guess I had better say take it up with your fork for in select society I fear that it is not proper to pick up a piece of pie with your hand at least not unless you are on a picnic or some such informal occasion when the customs and conventions of the social world are somewhat relaxed but at any rate if you eat this piece of pie certainly it does not lie in your mouth to stand up and say that you still have it well I dont know though about that of course in a 128 dine Svpitner sense or rather in the proper receptacle you still have it but then you have not got control or jurisdiction over it so to speak for it can defy your mandates unless as is sometimes the case when you eat too freely of such sweets etc it may act directly contrary to the laws of gravitation and Without going into that in any further detail I think that I have made that sufficiently clear to you all no matter how dull or slow of compensation you may be so long as you follow me though at first blush you might think that such was not the case upon a second look of careful inspection I believe that you will modify your views upon the subject for every farmer and many city bred folk for that matter are well aware of the fact that it is the height or perhaps twould be better to say the depth of folly and it shows a deplorable lack of gray matter usually vested in the cranium of the the average reasonable man to refuse to recognize the every day application of the axiom that one is taking a great risk or chawnce or even harebrained adventure if you please if he buys a pig in a poke for then he has no reliable method of making sure exactly what he has gotten and I remember in this connection that an elderly friend who had been a rather gay dog in his day once told me that the title to Blackacre was often a subject of much altercation and even bad spirited litigation but then I am not sure that it is just the proper thing for a barrister to call litigation anything but the most welcome ship upon the daily 'horizon for it is a well known fact that without litigation no lawyer could hope to make an honest living and as a matter of fact very few of them ever live to see the realization of that hope though of course we all hope for it still it does not cost anything to hope so long as you promptly leave hope behind and by the way Lord Shakespeare or some such legal light of the common law days enunciated that doctrine very clearly in one of his famous treatises on Real Property advising his client to enter the domain but to leave all hope behind and I notice that there is no mention of this client leaving any fee behind but I am quite certain that this most essential matter was arranged satis- factorily before the client left his attorneys office and just as a matter of practical advice let me warn you all to be sure and attend to your financial remuneration before taking any other steps though some idealist has remarked in a careless moment that virtue is its own reward but as I have never tested that theory I am not competent to pass judgment thereon but I may say that I have my grave doubts about the practicability of applying that rule to ordinary every day life and oh I see that it is lunch time so we will have to discontinue for today and we will resume promptly at the hour of nine on the morrow. HRJREK CIWJNI-IOj.', The Svnitlzr 129 Tucky's Transverberating Twaddle will please come to order, gentlemen, while we begin the 11 discussion of some tolerably interesting and important doctrines Q V laid down in our text-book for the amusement of easy marks. C First, we will take up a few definitions and see what we don't Z know about them. lVfr. Raney, what is a 'common carrier'? Egg s! x "A 'common carrier,' Professor, did you say? Why, let's ' . see, I know that alright! A 'common carrier' is a thing-I e mean it is a person, or no I mean it is a-er-er-er it is a-er-that is lv of elm to say-ah-ere-erin "No, I hardly agree with you, Mr. Raney, for that definition would not hold Water, do you think it would? Mr. Pollard, what do you think about it? Can you give us a good definition?" "I'm not sure whether I can giveyou er definition, Professor, but I can sort er give you a good illustration, you might say." "Well, let's have it-just so it's something to the point." "Why-er-er, I don't know Whether I am right or not, but I saw you riding an old gray mare the other day in front of the Blues on parade and she looked like she was pretty close to a mighty 'common carrier'-tee heel" "That would be alright, Mr. Pollard, except that she did not issue any proper bills of lading for her cargo. Now, Mr. Jones, can you tell us-or rather give us an 'illustration'--nothing like the last one, however, showing us what con- tributory negligence is ?" "Why, I dunno but what I can. For instance, if you were to ride a street car without paying your fare-of course this is just a pure or rather an impure supposi- tion-and the car company would go bankrupt for the Want of just five or ten cents, I think they could hold you for contributory negligence, for neglecting to contribute." "Well, well, that's a new one on me. In fact, I clon't recall any case directly in point that has ever been passed on by the Supreme Court, so we'll have to take that on faith, I guess. And now I want someone to tell us about 'last clear chancef How about it, Mr. Dunford?" 130 GDB SWIJUJBI "Why, I am not exactly clear on that part of the subject, professorg indeed, I have not yet straightened that out in my notes, but just to answer offhand, I should say that if this was the last day of the session and this was the last recitation and if I had bummed along pretty poorly all through the term, why probably the exam would be my 'last clear chance' to keep from busting on this ticket." "I think you're right, Mr. Dunfordg at least, you may be. But at any rate we will proceed and see if any one can give us a good example of negligence 'per se.' Can you, Mr. O'Flaherty?" "Why, lVlr. Tucker, I should say that for a man who had any regard for his stomach, etc., to eat in the Refectory would be just that." "Well, now, Mr. Pinner, suppose you tell us what we mean when we speak of a man having 'testamentary intent.' You know you often hear of cases that are decided purely on the question of whether or not the man in question evidenced a 'testamentary intent' just before his death, or thereaboutsf' "Um-hum. I would not like to go on record as saying this but just here in the class I might venture to say that the best instance I know of such a state of mind is when a murderer or some such fellow is about to be electrocuted and he then begins to read his Testament all day long, I should be inclined to say he was showing a 'testamentary intent,' wouldn't you?" "Well, maybe so. But to follow up that line a little further, what would you say, Mr Pinner, was an example of a Gift Causa Mortis, or to say it in plain English, a gift on account of death?" "Why-er-er the only case I know of that is where lots of men who died in the Bible were reported to have 'given up their ghosts on account of death.' " "Very good, lVlr. Pinner. Now, let us consider a famous case or two. Mr. Wicker, there is a case that was decided in New York, but at the same time it had considerable effect on Virginia, and this case was called the 'Green Casef What do you know about it?" "Why, professor, I expect I am the 'Green Case' myself on that question, 'cause I never heard of it before." Well, if you have never heard of it, why the- chances are that we will be better off, on the whole, if you spare us from any explanation of it. But you ought to have read it several times before this and I know of no excuse for you, unless your negligence here might be passed over on a plea of 'inherent vice of the goods' Mr. Gary, can you tell us the important facts and the decision, with reasons of the court, in the celebrated 'Betty Lewis Case'?" GDB Spihtt 131 "Yes, sirg Doctor, I can do that. It happens very fortunately that I have read that case over from beginning to end very carefully, although I must admit that it was quite a while ago that I last read it. In fact, a very long time, and so, naturally, my mind is a bit hazy on the exact issue at point as well as several other details, more or less important. But there can be no doubt that this case had a revolutionary effect in every case in which its established doctrines were operated in contravention to other customs and usages which were previously in vogue. The court's decision has often been questioned by many, but at that, it still retains all of its original force and pristine vigor-at least, to my mind." "There is no doubt, Mr. Gary, that this case has made a very striking im- pression upon your very receptive mind. But the trouble here is that you are too stingy with yourself, for you have not let us share the knowledge you gained from that case at all. Mr. Duke, is a tax on labor unions constitutional?" "No, indeed, sirg it is not constitutional, nor is any such vicious measure to be defended by persons of honest thinking. Any such tax as you speak of would be the very incarnation of the greedy, bloody, grasping proclivities of capital reaching out its Octopus-like tentacles to ensnare and crush the very life and existence out of all the poor down-trodden, horny-handed, brow-sweating sons of toil. .I protest against-" "Calm yourself, my friendg calm yourself. We are not going to do any of those awful things you were just about to condemn. But, to drop that subject, Mr. Crymes, can you tell us whether the operation of law is a good defense by a carrier in a suit for damage or loss to goods ?" "No, sirg that is not a valid defense, or-ha, ha, its kind of funny but there IS an old rule that says that ignorance of the law excuses no one and so the carrier ought to have known the law and if he had he would not have been surprised and damaged by its operation, and therefore he would not have lost the goods and consequently-ha, ha-he would not have been sued by the owner. I-Iow's that, Professor ?" "The court will reserve its opinion about that answer for fear of prosecution for slander. Does any one know what an act of God is? . . . What no one dares tell us? . . . Well, then, I think I can tell you best by saying that if any of you ivory-skulled pinheads succeed in ever learning anything or passing any first-class examination, it will most assuredly be a miraculous 'act of Gocl.' That will do for to-day." A URJREK C1wJNHoJ." 132 tithe Spina Bricky's Bamboozling Babble 'rj' .np KN OOD MORNING, young gentlemen, I hope-nay, I am sure that you have each and every one fully covered the small assign- W V J ment set for to-clay-merely a matter of some hundred and f ,, twenty pages-a Minor matter, I may add. I wish to say, before Aki at going into the lecture proper for to-day, that there has been in 5l.?,lllb? evidence all through this term a very great lack of punctuality Tfflitin g , 'E- F Q. li "1 : Q . 1 is 335 about several members of our class. It does seem to me that we should all be here promptly on the stroke of nine so that we could plunge right into the work ahead of us and emerge with the fullest understanding possible. This is impossible when-- Ah, here you are, lVlr. Pittg I see that you are several minutes tardy this morning, and I was right apropos of my point, and made a good illustration. Now, you see, gentlemen, if I had been saying something very important, lVlr. Pitt would have missed it all and thus suffered irreparable harm. But you need not feel that I am striking at you alone, Mr. Pitt, though it is true that you have not been on time but once so far, neverthelessi Well, here you are, Mr. Duke, late again, and this time you have come in almost fifteen minutes after the time set for convening by our regular schedule. Don't you feel rather like a thief of time? I should think that your name would be 'lVIr. Procrastinatorf or some such monaker as that. Just think now, if every one in the class were to come as late as you have, what an enormous loss in wisdom there would be.'s see now, there are twelve in the class. Twelve times fifteen makes-er-er-let's put it on the blackboard so as to make it a little plainer to you all. Yes, yes, you see twelve times fifteen makes one hundred and seventy minutes, or nearly three hours in all of valuable lecturing at the rate of fifty cents an hour. Why, you can readily see that the class would, as a whole, lose almost a dollar and a half and when you multiply that figure by the number of recitations in a year, you will see that the total sum will amount to pretty near a small fortune, that is in these days of hard times. I Wish very much that some others who are not here were present now for it is chiefly for their benefit that I am going through all this. But probably after I have finished talking about it they will come trooping- Why, good morning, Mr. Gary and lVIr. Dunford. I am charmed to see you, but I regret that you have arrived too late to hear what I have just been saying. It was for your especial benefit, too. Well, I suppose Ghz Sfpiher 133 that we had better begin our work now, since all the stragglers seem to have gotten safely into the fold and also I notice that the time is passing very rapidly. We are to consider the subject of 'Dower and Curtesy' to-day, and I may assure you in advance that it is a very interesting study, though, of course, you have already found that out from your reading before class time. Relations between husband and wife, and their claims and counter claims upon each other, and, more espe- cially upon the property of each other, are something that we are all liable to come to ultimately. Just like death, it is more or less inevitable and is always hanging over us like a dark and foreboding cloud which is likely to swoop down and envelope us at any moment, when we are least expecting it. Now, lVlr. Crymes, just what is 'Dower'?" "Why, Professor, 'Dower' is something very vague. In fact, if I understand it properly, it is very hard to understand. When you come to the long and short of it, there are lots of things that might be called 'Dower' if you cared to stretch the definition, but then, definitions are more or less unsatisfactory at some time or other, and so I should say that it was the interest which one party gets in another party's property when that party dies, assuming both parties to be married-and to each other, of course, and assuming the marriage to be a valid one, and assum- ing that the proper circumstances exist under which it is proper that 'Dower' should descend to that party. I think that is what the book says about it." "Well, Mr. Crymes, you're pretty warm, but I don't think that you are exactly right, though there is a good deal in what you say. What do you think about it, lVlr. James?" "Why-er-er, I should say that lVlr. Crymes was right except that the prop- erty ought to go to the other party and not to the party Mr. Crymes said it ought to go to. I think he is wrong." "Well, now, class, here is a 'pretty point,' indeed. These two young gentle- men are diametrically opposed upon the solution of a very puzzling problem. What does anybody think about it? Well, Mr. Pinner, I see that you are about to say something. Perhaps you can throw some light upon the situation." "Why, Professor, I wasn't going to say anything about that exact particular question, but I wanted to ask you if a man died, leaving a horse and a cow, three pigs, and a wife and child, to whom would his property go and how would it be divided?" "Well, Mr. Pinner, that certainly has no very direct bearing on the question at debate, but, if it will ease your mind, we might say that this has been a 'much- mooted' question in Virginia courts for a long while, and whenever any such case 134 Ubi! Spirit! arises the Appellate Court has always seemed to dodge the real fundamental issue at stake. May I ask if you have any personal interest in the settlement of your question?" "Not exactly, Professor, but I just thought it might do me no harm to know, so that if ever the question did arise, I might be prepared to answer it without any undue parley. Under the head of that question, can you tell me whether the man's wife and child would be classed as personal or real property?" "Well, lVlr. Pinner, that is a very nice question, a very pretty point, indeed, but we cannot assume to go into all branches of the law here. We will have to take that up later on and you will consider that question in constitutional law. But, coming back to the old question, out of 'Curtesy' to the class, we will have to let Mr. james and lVlr. Crymes debate their wrangle off by themselves where their vitriolic language will not be liable to injure any innocent passer-by. And now, to trespass on your patience a little more, may I ask some one to tell us what 'Curtesy' is?" "Why, Professor, that's the sametthing as 'Dower,' only it's different because not the same party gets it and a few different rules govern it, but in the main it is very similar to the other. You might almost call them twins-such as a double twin remainder on a double different contingency. It gets its name because it is the only decent and courteous thing the law can do to alleviate the pain of bereave- ment to the surviving spouse." "Very good, I think that is perfectly simple now. Don't you SEE? I want to make this course clear above everything else and I am willing to spend all of the lecture period upon one thing if necessary, so long as we get a definite, coherent idea of it all, after we are through. There is nothing like thoroughness, especially in a course like this. Of course, we should like to argue things out all the time, but then when a point comes up I will always tell you the law-the settled law- and then there need be no further argument on the point, even though it be a very pretty one. I see that we have not quite covered our full lesson to-day, but then I have sacrificed speed upon the altar of efficiency and so you will just have to do the best you can and get up the balance of the assignment after class. For the next time you will please take anywhere from one hundred to one hundred and fifty pages in advance of where we last left off, and I hope that next time we will be more fortunate in our covering. Now before I dismiss class, is there anyone who is not perfectly clear on all the points covered to-day?" fDeath-like silence., "Well, then, I thought so, and now We will adjourn for the day and meet again next week.

With apologies to the immortal QDQN 5201 William, we have set forth the above prelude to these remarks, QQ"-fklgiili in order that the layman may know with what considerations we had to deal, ere we sacrificed ourselves on the altar of our ambi- tions. For our presence here we have no apologies to offer. The Junior Law Class is a necessity, as much a necessary as Dr. lVl.'s horse, "Charlie," or his cow ,"Sue"g as much a necessity as our fair inspirations "across the lake"g as much a necessity as the aforesaid lake, which separates the inspirations from the inspired. We have said we are a necessity, and 'tis true. Yet we are humble in the realization of our insignificance. We are only the foundation of a great house of law. We have said that for our presence here we refused to apologise. The refer- ence was only to our presence as a unit, for there are many things for which we owe an explanation, if not an apology. The lirst of these is Shelton. F or him there seems to be little excuse. He just happened, that's all, and we were powerless to prevent it. He arrived in our midst one September morn, bringing with him his "hoary locks," and making a bold at- tempt to look wise. All Went well, till some sleuth discovered he was from Louisa County. That ended it. When a few days later he failed to ,. falter under a cross-examination in contracts, we abandoned all ' 1 hope of ever inducing him to leave. What- .

QIIVJBB 137 the genus homo belongs, that we fear to express our ideas along that line, but will leave the youth to your tender mercies and careful consideration. Morowitz is beyond us. We are totally unable to fathom this youth. Every Friday, despite the fact that the subject of carriers is being elucidated in a most entertaining manner, he abruptly leaves for parts unknown. We are told his destina- tion is Newport News, where he purports to reside, but we are prone to believe there is something more than "home and mother" back of these weekly sojourns. And now, lest you think there are no legal lights amongst us, let us mention a few. In the years to come much is to be expected of Charlie Ford and Lloyd Wilson. 'Tis said they are contemplating a partnership, which they are planning to call "necessity," for the very obvious reason that "necessity knows no law." Among the least offensive of our number we find Tate, Smith, Gayle and Satterfield. Time and space forbid an elaboration of the merits of these men. And last, but by no means least, for our president we offer neither explanation nor apology. William I-I. Sands, Jr., is his own explanation, and as for apologies, he makes none himself, nor does he wish any made for him. This conglomeration of versatility once before inflicted his presence upon the campus as an academic student somewhere back in the dear dim clays beyond recall. At any rate, he has turned his eyes towards greater things and is here seeking a nobler and better thing-a B. L. We wish him all the success which a never tiring energy and per- sistence so richly deserves. And this purports to be a "history"! To our mind it is far from such. Indeed, at a glance, one can tell it is nothing more than a conglomeration of nonsense. But in order that your verdict may not be too harsh, we plead the justification of un- limited precedents. fe-S W. I-I. CARDWELI., Historian. W. I-I. SANDS, JR.

He can be seen any Sunday afternoon escorting a fair one over the campus, pointing out the places of interest.

If you were to loolc for "Billy" you would find him in one of three places, in the classroom, at the State Library, or out in Ashland practicing up with the fire department. That worthy town boasts of a real, genuine, old '76 lite- reel, and "Billy," it is rumored, is chief. Some people make their way in the world by talking a great deal about nothing, but "Billy" is taciturn and when he does open his lips he has something sensible to say. l-le's an all-round man, and a diligent, hard-working student.

It's a well-known fact he can't get along with less than ten. ROBERT BROADDUS GAYLE RICHMOND, VIRGINIA The space alloted here is not nearly enough to relate a tenth of the exploits of this happy young man.

The life of a successful lawyer is necessarily stren- uous. It is more like football than any game you have ever played. The combat brings you in direct, personal, and oftimes terrific conflict with your adversary. The game is played in the open and the occupants of the grandstand will soon discover the kind of stuff of which you are made. Your earnest desire to win, and the heat engendered by the blows of your antagonist will often tempt you to break the rules of the game, but don't slug, foul or trip-"play a clean game." Every man needs an ideal, a guiding star. Rauschenbusch has furnished it to the lawyer in his wonderful prayer for all lawyers. Read it, re-read it, inwardly digest it and follow its precepts: O Lord, Thou are the eternal order of the Universe. Our human laws at best are but an approximation to Thy immutable law, and if our institutions are to endure, they must rest on justice, for only justice rests on Thee. We beseech Thee for the men who are set to make and interpret the laws of our nation. Grant to all lawyers a deep consciousness that they are called of God to see justice done, and that they prostitute a holy duty if ever they connive in the defeat of justice. Fill them with a high determination to make the law courts of our land a strong fortress of defense for the poor and weak, and never a castle of oppression for the hard and strong. Save them from surrendering the dear-bought safeguards of the people for which our fathers fought and suffered. Rather revive in them the spirit of the great liberators of the past that they may cleanse our law of the ancient wrongs that still cling to it. Let not the web of obsolete precedents veil their moral visiong but grant them a penetrating eye for the rights and wrongs of to-day, and a quick human sympathy with the life and sufferings of the people. May they never perpetuate the tangles of the law for the profit of their profession, but aid them to make the law so simple, and justice so swift and sure, that the humblest may safely trust it and the strongest fear it. Grant them wisdom so to re-fashion all law that it may become the true expression of the new ideals of freedom and brotherhood which are now seeking their incarnation in humanity. Make these, our brothers, the wise interpreters of Thine eternal law, the brave spokesmen of Thy will, and in reward bestow upon them the joy of being conscious co-workers with Thy Christ in saving mankind from the bondage of wrong." Amen. JNO. GARLAND POLLARD. I atm epiuer mi "Speech is Silver, Silence is Gold" CBeing a Play in One Actj CLYDE C.

UJSU The e-pine: 145 Greater Richmond College i'C,TgT?:L T IS yet too soon to let this name die. It is the connecting link Ry. between the name "Richmond College," so dear to our fathers, and the inevitable designation of the future, "The University of XIX. jf ' Richmond." "Greater Richmond College" was a phrase to con- Xk. ., -GA Jure with in our campaign for the half-million dollars that made possible removal to our new campus. "The University of Rich- Qu'LQ','Al5f:gxAQ, mondn may well be our slogan in the million dollar campaign that is to begin next January. Friends of Richmond College have many things for which to be grateful. For eighty-three years the institution has quietly done its useful and enlarging work. The record of its graduates in private living and public service is an honorable part of the nation's history. A great denomination thrills with pride at thought of preachers, teachers and mis- sionaries trained in the college class rooms. The trustees have guarded the prop- erty with scrupulous care and have steadily increased the productive funds. Inspir- ing facts like these make up the glorious heritage of "Greater Richmond College," but they do not tell the whole story. The future of the college is assured lirst of all by reason of its location. Rich- mond is one of the best known cities of the western world, and may well be called one of the world capitals. The memories and memorials of a "Lost Cause" cluster in Richmond's squares and public edifices, and will forever incite aspiration and reverence. Materialism can never in such a city triumph over the things of the spirit. By reason of its geographical location and of its immemorial traditions, Richmond stands as interpreter and mediator between North and South. ln such an environment and with such an atmosphere, a great school of higher learning is inevitable and indestructible. The only condition lacking for complete success has been adequate financial resources, and with the rehabilitation of Southern industry the money will be forthcoming. Our college has done well to plan for a great and expanding future. No small institution with narrow aims or limited vision will satisfy the demands of this growing capital city, to say nothing of the needs of an imperial State and a conquering denomination. If Richmond College does not grow, and grow fast, the municipality will itself build a great college to meet its diverse and multiplying educational necessities. But the officers of the college are not without vision. They 144 dtibe Spiner have acquired 290 acres, a lordly domain, right in the track of the city's west- ward march, and there they have expended more than a million dollars in fire- proof buildings according to plans which admit of indefinite expansion. The Gothic architecture is satisfying and harmonious. The landscape is beautiful. Already the underground pipes and conduits are laid for buildings to cost another million dollars. Nor has the expanding college been unmindful of the needs of the twentieth century woman. Westhampton College, an institution that measures up to the highest standards of efliciency, is the answer of the college corporation to the demand of Virginia women. Co-ordinate colleges are relatively new in America, but they steadily grow in favor. Richmond has the second college of this type south of the Potomac and Ohio. Economy of administration and maintenance, a freer social life, a stronger faculty, and a greater total impress upon the community are some of the advan- tages justly claimed for co-ordinate colleges. But what is the significance of all these things for the Class of l9l5. Their interest, in part, consists in the fact that during the momentous transition period the members of this class were participants in the development of Greater Rich- mond College. The time will come when they will refer to these events with the proud reflection, "Quorum magna para fuimusf' They will always in an especial sense be the "old grads," because all things new will date back to the Class of 1915. They will share, too, in the increasing renown of Alma Mater. Succeed- ing generations of students can never imagine the college smaller or less efficient than they hnd it. So that in l940 we "ancients of 1915" will bask in the reflected glories of the university that is to be. F. W. BOATWRIGHT. '1 w 146 65112 Swine: Richmond College To-day ICI-IMOND COLLEGE was never so splendidly equipped for l y 3 service as she is to-day. The removal to Westhampton has X marked the beginning of a new era of usefulness in the life of l our Alma Mater. Our claims upon the patronage of those seek- is W.. .51 S al . Y s 'xy llls ' Q my - ww 'Ace lW . . yl women were never greater than now. President Boatwright 'f F . 'a Ll. A ing higher educational advantages for young men and young 4,9 occupies a commanding position among the educators of the South. We have in Dr. 'Metcalf and Miss Keller two deans of exceptional ability and we have an unusually strong faculty, I think easily the very best we have ever had. The courses of instruction are only such as could be had in a standard college of the highest grade. Our prosperity during this first session in our new home demonstrates the wis- dom of our change in location, for we not only have the largest number of students ever matriculated in any one session, but they have done exceptionally line work. The removal to Westhampton has been a success far beyond our brighest anticipa- tions. We have a site of unsurpassed loveliness. The trustees have expended in the erection of new buildings and in the improvement of the grounds, more than a million of dollars, and yet We already need additional accommodations for the comfort and convenience of our students, and a larger endowment for the more satisfactory conduct of our work. Our very prosperity may compel us to make new demands upon our friends, and if we do, their generous support in the past justifies us in believing that they will be only too glad to continue giving to an institution, which is destined to play so important a part in the Christian education of the young men and young women of Virginia and of the South.

Indeed, my Alma wj accessories that make girls pretty. But Richmond College, as CO' 'AWP all of our "oldest inhabitants" will tell you, is a "lady with a past"-an interesting past. While not old enough to be rheumatic nor yet young enough to be kittenish, she has lived to see many strange things come to pass. Truth to tell she has been a sort of cultural Johnny-on-the-Spot. Let us illustrate this peculiar Johnny-on-the-Spotism a little. To begin with- if we are to trust the historians-the original college plant was established not quite seventy-five years ago on a suburban site less than a quarter of a mile from the quondam farm of that picturesque rebel, Nathaniel Bacon. So right at the start we have a pleasing field in which imagination may exul- tantly kick up its constructive heels. Who is prepared to say that Nat Bacon, on off-days, when not engaged in defying Sir William Berkeley or fighting Indians, did not chase potato bugs off his plantation to the land which later was destined to become the seat of a great institution of learning? Who can deny that the brave rebel's shoats-the Baconian bacon, as it were-may occasionally have wandered from their own demesne and rooted on that dearly-beloved old campus even as our alumni of days agone rooted for their honored ball teams? U fb' ft tfil 'gg . . . . , . Mater now IS enjoying a sort of second girlhood with all the aux. .T-Ae Apropos of propinquity, there's one thing we do know "beyond the peradven- ture of a doubt"-that many, many years after poor Bacon passed away, but nevertheless long ago, Richmond College had a magnificent beer garden as its immediate neighbor. Traces of this cooling retreat in the shape of gnarled, mori- bund trees remained up to a decade or so ago. To-day, however, several greasy garages drip gasolene in places where once the Winsome Wurtzberger flowed. The asylum for the thirsty, to which reverent reference is here made, was known as "Schad's Lager Beer Garden." And thereby hangs a tale. At the outbreak of hostilities the Richmond I-lowitzers were quartered on the college campus. Adjoining them, but separated by a high wooden fence, was the beckoning beer gardens. Southern patriotism ran high, yet it was not without its tincture of undisciplined mischievousness, but 150 GDB SlJiU2IT trousered tobacco-chewing Encyclopoediae Britannicae in point of knowledge-men who thought so deeply that their ideas had to be Hshed out of their cerebral tanks with one hundred foot lines. We are proud to be "part and parcel" of the Richmond College alumni. In our time we sedulously attended all of the lectures. While to-day we can barely speak English and hardly know the difference between a parallelogram and an x-minus sign, we feel that, somehow, something about the atmosphere of Rich- mond College gave us polish and manicured us intellectually as no other influence could have done. It may havebeen the serene dignity of the institution itself 5 it may have been the kindly green of the emerald campusg it may have been the soporiferousness of the lecture rooms with their much-whittled benchesg it may have been the worthy example of the plodding, patient Hjaspersug or, more likely than all, it may have been the inspiration that came from the stalwart men who were our professors. Be this as it may, we went cheerfully through the scholastic mill, were ground into the meal of good citizenship fespecially were we ground on examination daysll and when we' left college we sneakingly felt that people in the outside world would tumble over one another to avail themselves of our services. This hasn't always proved the case, but when you hear a big noise and see a blind- ing light the disturbance is mighty apt to be due to one of our alumni. To sum things up, we have caused ourselves to be felt all over the South- land, and the footprints we have made in the sands of time would seem to indicate that we have tried to kick holes in the earth. We are proud of ourselves jointly and severally, individually and collectively, and there is reason to believe that others also are proud of us. Let it be understood, however, that the piety that is in us, the stability of character that makes us' muleish, the culture that makes us smooth as silk, the cour- age that makes us defy even germs and microbes, all had their genesis at the apron strings of our Alma Mater. By the same token we charge the younglings now at Greater Richmond College to study our example just as we studied the example of those who went before us. Remember, too, that a family tree, duly certified and absolutely lacking in "dead limbs," is no mean thing, especially when all its offshoots have hearts of oak! EVAN R. CHESTERMAN. CED? Spiiltr 149 strict military orders, backed by sentries, for a time, made Meinheer Schad's amber liquid froth untouched in its schooners, while the young cannoneers foamed at the mouth. The end of it all? Why, the desert-throated artillerymen of course got the beer. They scratched under the fence and reached the garden by a "sub- terranean route" known as "the I-log Hole." This hole was carefully concealed by a house tent which was backed up against the fence. As an additional pre- caution, a dry-goods box, seemingly a mere seat, covered the aperture when prying officers appeared. Now all this is history, and therefore it will live almost as persistently as a cat with nine lives, albeit the war is over, the naughty cannoneers for the most part are dead, the beer garden has utterly disappeared and the abandoned old college campus, cut up into city lots, will soon look like a little darkey's kinky head divided off into squares by curl papers. Neither the students nor the faculty of Richmond College were slow to answer Virginia's call. One-hfth of the graduates and many promising students lost their lives in battle. Here, indeed, is perpetual glory for our Alma Mater, though none of our Confederate alumni who escaped destruction in battle were ever known to complain because they emerged alive from the exchange of shot and shell. Humiliation of the worst kind-the kind that might make even the meekest jaspers grow Ucussin' mad"-came with the evacuation of Richmond when a negro regiment was quartered in the college building. These swart occupants of the property proved more obnoxious-and more destructive-than a swarm of cockroaches in a pantry. They took away everything portable that they did not destroy. We are told that their surgeon carted off all the books in the library, so that Yankee military camps and hospitals might be supplied with literature. Richmond College has never strutted around with a chip on her shoulder and ordinarily is not more bellicose than a guinea pig, but, speaking of Confederate days, it is rather odd that her new home should be near the scene of a famous skirmish-the fight between the Richmond reserves and Col. Dahlgren's raiders. Suffice it to say, that one does not-and never has had to-hunt Richmond College up with a searehlight when "there's anything doing." In short, our "pride of ancestry" is no frivolous thing, it is based not on the memory of a group of inverte- brates, but on the duly recorded achievements of men who had backbone-men who shouted in Stentorian tones when they talkedg men who wore seven-league boots when they Walkedg men who seemed Homeric John l... Sullivans when they foughtg men who thundered like Gargantua when they laughedg men who were fl I rs- -I I I I P I J I. .521-.-14 . 4, .Ie '- 'II t.

However, he had forgotten -Wlrzzifw. rm WN 'f r 1 FW! f 4 'fi they were at Petersburg. They passed through there, and all faces turned to Farmville. The Mandolin Club began operations as soon as they got fixed in the train, and after listening a while the news butcher asked if they were "going somewhere to play basket-ball." Manager Johnson tactfully herded his gang into a couple of rooms in the Continental, and in about thirty minutes the S. N. S. became as popular as Murphy's grill on Saturday night. Canes were used to much advantage on this afternoon, although Mose Breitstein got his mixed up between his legs and suffered a severe fall. The concert at night was well attended and the reception afterwards by the Cotillion Club of the school was de- ' Z lightful in every respect. The N 1 . . N N M 'lg bunch caught the midnight , W ,, - 4 sleeper for Lynchburg, and on 0" , . I the arrival there Tom Bass Q 9 f .Z W was found on top of the water- , 2 f f cooler In Lynchburg the two- Q Q ' b' e r n it meal was attended to, and vwammr the fast Southern accommoda- tion express, freight and cattle train bore our loyal band to Chatham. A lunch was served at the Training School that would make the Refectory look like an old back fence in a Kansas cyclone. The concert in the afternoon was not unusually successful, probably on account of the large building in which it was held. That night in Danville, at R. M. I., a small but appreciative audience wel- comed the enthusiastic performers, and dealt kindly with their efforts. Next day tithe Quinn 221 the crew left for Lynchburg to lay over for a one-night rest. R. M. W. C. fell the victim of some truant members, but there were no losses from our number by arrest or murder. Also great consternation arose when by actual count two canes were missing, and the party retired with a feeling of regret at the loss of such grace- ful scenery. Next morning some fellows got toothpicks and walked out from the direction of the hotel dining-room with an air of abstract indifference, and when 'rua' 'W' su-:E Quick 'E LUNCH U51 mm l Q U 1 n - -u M c .

After running up and down the street like a three- year-old Shorthorn steer with the foot and mouth disease, the management got his fol- lowing aboard a station-bound car, and upon arriving at which luxurious and taste- fully arranged open-air Wait- ing room, a call was sent out for track material and an open meet was held while waiting for the train. Thence to Roanoke and Hollins. Would that we were empowered to fitly describe such bliss as followed. Hollins was all we dreamed it to be, and we yearned for a month's engagement instead of one afternoon. The geniality and consideration shown us there and at Hollins throughout will long be remembered with the utmost pleasure. Back to Roanoke at night the wanderers reluctantly wandered. The Eagles' Home was the field of endeavor there, and after an indifferent performance, the crowd enjoyed just such open- hearted pleasure and hospitality of which Roanoke's good people boast. All were loath to leave the next day, but other treats were in store at Harrisonburg-the men stayed in delightful homes about the city and every moment of their stay was thoroughly enjoyed. A big dance at the school, after the concert, wound up the events of the very eventful week, and next morning all left, tired but happy, for Richmond.

FRANK M. DOBSON N ALL HISTORY there have been times when the world needed a leader-one who could slcilfully guide the destiny of affairs through critical crises of peril-one who could rally the shattered and discouraged forces of man!-:ind and, with dominant brain and courage of steel, mold these fragments into a strong, powerful, unyielding unit. And so has it been with nations, and with states, and with every community and body politic. And so, also, has it been with colleges, and so, indeed, has it been with our own college, in regard to her athletic activities. And when the time was at hand when the "Spider Ship" was nearing the reefs and breakers of athletic disintegration and destruction, "the powers that be" were forced to choose-and without delay-what course should be taken. Then, indeed, all minds thought as one and recognized, with full accord, the imperative need of a pilot to take charge in that dark hour and steer, if he could, our ship to safety. The necessity was urgent and dire for one possessed of such rare qualities, in short, for a MAN! Needless to record, he was found! Frank Mills Dobson has for nearly two years reigned as the Spider Czar of Athletics-or rather. and more accurately, as our wise and talented "Big Brother!" His achievements, in that period, are too well l-mown, both hy us and our opponents, to require narration here. His whole-souled life with us is too indelibly stamped upon the hearts of all to want of printed eulogy, his lofty ideals and Christian example need never he written in any book, for they live and have their being in the lives ofthe boys he loves so well. tl il: .iz ,, air' ' , 54.4.-as-e ,. ,, . ,..-4,..:1 , 4, , ' L :A - x ..- i.1-- I ,11 5 I 'il .TTL-T-1-LT .

The most disappointing feature MJ was the failure of the "big" men in college to give the game serious thought, and a general lack of ambition, on their part, W1 gZ,?A to "make" the 'varsity. Two reasons can be offered, viz.: no J-A , .,-AC XVI previous experience and an absence of that athletic necessity- QCH ramp nerve. So, from a squad of twelve men, whose average weight was around one hundred and seventy-five, only two got through the preliminary season without a desire to quit. The letter men responded as they had in l9l3-all of them coming down to the championship games as regulars, but one, against strong opposition from the new men. Prospects, above the average for a college of our class, were given a severe jolt, when Klevasahl, King, Bruce and Carter were lost to the squad. The first man mentioned by business pressure, the second by a very unfair disqualification by the E. V. I. A. and the two latter by failure to meet the entrance requirements. We came through the practice games in good shape, and met Hampden- Sidney in the first championship game without the services of Captain Ancarrow. With only one of our formations perfected, the Tigers were easily defeated. The following week our rivals at Williamsburg played the finest defensive game we encountered, but finally succumbed to our machine-like play. Then came Ran- dolph-lVlacon, and with them came defeat. Alertness on the part of their ends on down-field work and the clever forward passing game they played at the offset beat our superior offense and splendid defense, for with the few games registered at the beginning of the first quarter, the Jackets lost more ground than they gained. . The second series opened in Richmond with Hampden-Sidney as our guests. Two entirely different styles of attack were uncovered in a spectacular game, which we won because our offense was built on sound lines, which made our advance consistent, only failing to make our distance on three occasions. H.-S. presented a whirlwind forward passing game, after finding their runner attack futile, and while it netted them both scores, it could not be depended upon after our defen- sive backs had fathomed it. Our four touchdowns were earned by clean-cut pass- ing, running and quick kicking. Erbs Strainer 275 William and Mary were our next visitors and we overwhelmed them with a line-up which gave several second string men an opportunity to show their ability. Two weeks passed, and then came the season's climax. Randolph-Macon sent the best men on the field they could possibly assemble. We, too, were primed for the battle. Everything was ideal for a game of such importance. During the Hrst half the advantage was slightly in our favor, though the Jackets' defense was superb. The second half furnished the highest class of foot- ball played in Richmond during the season. Our line had made life a pleasure for our secondary men, for, with a few exceptions, end runs and line plays were smothered in Randolph-lVlacon's terri- tory. We received the kick-off and by clever Variation of plays, with a forty- yard run by Logan mixed in, Craig soon scored on an end run. Randolph-Macon fought back as only Yellow Jackets can against Spiders, but after much hard work, Pollard carried the ball over for a second touchdown, his taking advantage of the linesmen's aid being exceptionally clever. The Jackets could not score a point. Thus was another championship won! Captain Ancarrow brought to a close a brilliant football career, and his place as player and leader will be hard to fill. He exhibited an excellent spirit and his willingness to play regardless of his physical welfare was an inspiration to his team. ,. 4 I 276 me spina Football Scrubs WEST, RUSSELL, TAIJAFERRO Ends GOODE, HARmsoN Tackles TERRY, ANIIERSON, CROWELL Cuards Kino METCALF Centre BLANKENSHIP Quarterback Fulllmclf TURNER, RENNIE, HEUBI Halfbaclgs " The Scrubs" Day after day they went to play All hail, indeed, to the team that won Battered and bruised and scarred, The laurel for Red and Blue, Seasoning others for the fray But after the day, with its ight, was clone, Almost unnoticed their toilsome may, And the heroes applauded one by one, Helping to min, but without display There were those who, without a place in the sun Lalnoring patiently, hard!

Thanlfsgiving now was two days past, And the crucial hour had come, Each Spider's heart was beating fast, And sounding like a drum. The Spiders had started the season, By beating the Tiger team: And the committee, without any reason. Had let out an awful scream. "You played some ineligible players," They cried with a wrathy howl: And they sounded just like some brayers, And they frowned with a terrible scowl. "This King boy had only nine units," They claimed with faces red,' "And if we don't punish you soon, it's A shame to the league," they said. So they sat in solemn session, And voted with haughty mien: Put the game in the Tigers' possession, And retired on the bar to lean. Undaunted the doughty Spider team, With Dobson at the helm, Set out to raise what the vulgar deem His Satanic Mafesty's realm. The lowly Loonies next went down, In bitter, sod defeat: And the Spiders returned from Looneytown Chewing victorious meal. Alas, alas 'tis sod to tell Of the game with the faclfets tough: We lost, but then we made them yell, Because we were so rough. And next came the Tigers from their den. They'd wallop us sure they said: But the Spiders went out to fight and then The Tigers were carried home dead. v JUJT A LITTLE UWIPIR-KRW f. .. H Wigs, ..

X The championship was won by Randolph-Macon, and the f W ' - H sr ' in not having any home grounds or a convenient place to prac- IQ jiri .15 victory was well deserved. Our team was under a disadvantage J-A ,Aw 'AAC gihf up tice. In the exhibition games we lost to Virginia, V. P. I., and the I-lowitzers, and won two from the Grays and lVlcGills, re- pectively. We won the opening championship game from Hampden-Sidney in a hard fought battle. The following week we dropped our first one to the Yellow Jackets at Ashland. We trimmed the Loonies in the next game, which was played in 'the l-lowitzers' Armory. In the second game, at the same place, the Tigers suffered an overwhelming defeat, due to one of the niftiest passing exhibitions of the season. There was a record-breaking crowd at the second Randolph-Macon game, and it was battle full of pep. The Yellow Jackets gained a decisive victory. William and lVlary won the final game of the season, after a most exciting contest. ln view of the tearn's disadvantages, we can safely call the season a success, and great things are to be expected when we get the gymnasium. Captain Luebbert ended his second season as the Spider captain, and his brilliant work added new laurels to those he already had won. dtbe Sniffer To John Johnson john johnson, years have gone, john, Since first your raven Bron: Was seen upon the campus As happy then as nonw.

TIME: June, l9l3 I Gentlemen, as the Chairman of this me mm body, I ask you to come to order forder noth- 5 ing too expensive, howeverj. Z 8 - 53 if L.: Mr. Chairman, on account of the in- tricate political situation facing every hard- i working bricklayer, and also taking into ac- ' I count the deplorable rise in the price of Bud- um, Weiser, I beg, sir, to offer the following for adoption: "Resolved, That no college in this association be allowed to retain any man as athletic director who has ever played big league baseball." T.: Second it. S.: Mr. Chairman, sir, I protest. I protest with all the power in my l32 pounds avoirdupois. L.: I see no grounds for this outbreak of petulant peevishness, though I will admit that Mr. Dobson is the only coach in the league who has ever displayed enough combined brains and skill to be able to play in the big leagues, butt T.: Yesg and let me add, that this attempt by the Spiders to block such progressive legislation for personal reasons does look very selhsh and narrow. f.: Gentlemen, I thoroughly concur in the spirit and intent of the motion. It is undoubtedly aimed at the best interests of the majority. L.: And then, too, I would like to say that lVlr. Dobson exercises a perni- cious inlluence upon the league. By his presence, the Spiders have walloped all the rest of us in a most inconsiderate manner. I maintain that we will be far better off without this man in our midst. I entirely agree with you, Mr. Looney, and I may add that this Dobson person is rapidly giving the Spiders a monopoly of the championships and by so doing is violating the Sherman Anti-Trust Law. S.: Mr. Chairman, I see no other way out of it-and so I serve notice upon you that if this motion is put through the Spiders will withdraw from the league. Qtbe Spina 295 f., T. and L. fin united dismayj : Oh, no. By no means do such a thing as that! ' BARD3 j.: I shudder vvxth dismay, Mr. Spider, - when I hear such terrible threats! ci, I L.: lVlr.- Chairman, I see that I shall X ' ff have to withdraw my estimable motion, though I must say that. I think the stand of the Spiders I upon this question IS nothing short of unreason- ' "'i 7' ' able, consummate selfishness. 1-'Ml' I accept your Withdrawal, since I, too, realize the gravity of the situation, and I fear that the Spiders' clesertion would cause our teams to use the same uniforms for many years on a stretch. T.: I move we adjourn for a few moments' refreshment of the body and mind. J. T. and L. retire arm in arm to nearby room to pilot schooners over the bar, leaving Spider alone in his wrathful disgust. SCENE 2: fRichmond I-Iotel Refreshment Emporiumj. 1. .' fwell, Boys, it fell through. L.: Yehg but that's all right, We'll get them yet. T.: I-lush. I have an idea. f.: The very Hrst in years. Pray expectorate it in the range of our vision. T.: The Spiders have a law school. They have a rule which permits a stu- dent over twenty years of age to enter without the regular entrance units. We have no law schools. Ah-ha, ah-ha. j.: Elucidate more clearly and with greater alacrity and comprehensibility, avoiding the while all use of proliquitous verbosity. T.: Well, here make a law that will operate only against their law students like this: That no one can play on a team """ '5' """f' M unless he has ten Carnegie units. That'll cut I 'E 1' A out a bunch of their law athletes. Q .Je Jufmh i . . . . at 1. : Kindly indulge ln an explanation. ' - T.: He means "What is a Carnegie 55 7.11 -QL 5 1 unit?" L.: Ah-ha. That's the real beauty of '-'M it. A Carnegie unit is just whatever we choose to say it is, for we have the majority-three to one, see? 296 Gtbe Spiner L.: Great stuff. Boy, you're a wonder. f.: Pardon me if I ascend in rapturous heights over your felicitous suggestion. L.: Hold up there. That rule will bust us up some, for lots of our players couldn't produce a Carnegie unit if their grub depended on it. - T.: Huh, that'll be the easiest part of it. If the Spiders protest any of our men, why we'll just vote solid together and whitewash him. L.: By the shades of Captain Jack, you're right. f.: Precisely so. By that agreement we may protect ourselves and at the same time mete out due punishment to the over-ambitious Spiders. SCENE 3: fCommittee-Room, S.: Where in the name of Raving Lou have you dubs been? f.: The time passed so pleasantly that we were not cognizant of its lapse. T.: lVlr. Chairman, I hereby move that hereafter no one be allowed to play on any team in the league unless he has ten Carnegie units. L.: Second it. S.: Gentlemen, this motion is a very unfair one in that iti- T.: Question. Question. ji.: Gentlemen, pray cease this unseemly deportment. All in favor of this motion will signify by articulating in the afhrmative. T. and L.: Aye, aye, aye, aye. S.: No: by Dobson, nog never. j.: The amendment is carried, and if there is no further business we will stand adjourned. INTERIM During the summer many good athletes resolve to come to Richmond and play with the Spiders. First reports were glowing about all teams. After a stren- uous preliminary schedule the first game of the championship season approached. Two days before the game, which was to be played with the Tigers at Farmville, the Tigers protested Rock King, under the "Carnegie Unit Rule." Dean Metcalf, after an investigation, issued a certificate saying that King had sufficient units as required by the rule. This certificate caused the Tigers to apparently drop their charge. The Spiders then overwhelmingly walloped the Tigers, 26-9. In great dismay and rage, Tiger then recharged that King was ineligible, and forthwith a meeting of the Executive Committee of the league was called to sustain the charge. Gtbe Spina 297 Acr II SCENE l: CI-Iotel Richmond Refreshment Emporiumj T., and I... all standing close together in whispered confab fwith feet hooked over the raill.

T.: Well, we'll have just one more, as a Chaser, and then for the dirty Work. SCENE 2: fCommittee in Session-Roomj j Gentlemen, we are called together to-night to consider a charge against one King, a gridiron representative of the Spiders. Mr. Tiger charges that this fellow had not the requisite ten Carnegie units in his possession last Saturday when he took a very large part in the altercation between the Spiders and the Tigers. S.: lVlr. Chairman, I deny the allegator, and I furthermore assert that Mr. King did and does now have the necessary ten Carnegie units. T.: Ha, I-Ia, "he asserts." Oh, my toddiesg what effrontery. L.: What authority have you got? Prove your denial. Prove it, I say. S.: I have here, gentlemen, two docu- ments of worth and weight: One from the head of the high school Mr. King attended and f ix the other from Dr. Boatwright. i f.: Gentlemen, I have heard it said that 5 , HQ 'I this Dr. Boatwright is worthy of belief and so -' mill, W I We must needs consider his certificate, as well as l the other one. The papers fexamining them mll. sa 3 In msg minutelyj seem to be genuine. L.: Mr. Chairman, I do not see what weight any such papers as these can have. Who ever heard of their authors? What authority and learning has a 298 Qtbe S-Diner high principal? And who is this Boatwright person? Where did he ever learn to define a Carnegie unit? T.: Amen to that. I think we are fully qualified to manage our own affairs and the very production of these papers are unwarranted pieces of attempted usurpation of our jurisdiction. The very idea of two mere pedagogues tryirig to tell US what a Carnegie unit is. Huh! j.: Gentlemen, I entirely concur with this view. I think that the dignity of this body has been grossly trampled upon and the integrity of this committee grievously wounded and deeply insulted by these obscure school teachers. S.: lVlr. Chairman, lVlr. Chairman, lVlr. Chairman, I say, I say- f Mr. Spider, you appear too excited to speak rationally, so I shall recog- nize lVlr. Looney. L.: I would echo and emphasize these noble sentiments and move you, sir, that we disregard these infamous documents and find this King guilty as charged. S.: Wait a minute, Mr. Chairman, do you mean to say you are going to pay no attention to these important papers? T.: Who made 'em, anyway? They're not much pumpkins. j.: The committee feels, Mr. Spider, that these professors are probably good men, in their way, but we do not feel that their judgment is to be trusted in a matter requiring such great learning and skill as the one we now have in hand. L. and T.: Question, Question, Question. f. All in favor of finding this King individual guilty, say "aye," L. and T.: Aye, Aye, Aye, sir. S.: No, you boneheaded rummies, NO-0-0-O-00. j.: The motion is carried. Any further matters of business to come up? T.: Mr. Chairman, I further insist that the game played should be forfeited in favor of the Tigers. What? Mr. Chairman, the gentleman must be insane. Who ever heard of taking the victory away from the winners and handing it out to the losers? L.: What do we care what you've ever heard? We make our own laws! S.: But, gentlemen, this action is utterly unprecedented. In all the annals of football history no more has ever been done than to forfeit the game and order it played over. j.: Gentlemen, the matter is entirely in our hands. Permit me to say that we are a law unto ourselves and that we may make history if we soiwish. L.: Then I move, sir, that the game be credited to the Tigers. I.: All in favor utter the affirmative ejaculation. GDB Slllitltt 299 L. and T.: Aye, Aye, Aye, Aye, sir. S. fweak with astonishment and disgustj : NO-0-OO. f.: Carried, and so ordered. L.: Mr. Chairman, I next wish to spread my sentiments as being in favor of high-class ball for this league. f.: I quite agree with you, sir, if you will leave the "class" out of it. I am bitterly opposed to class distinctions. T.: Then, Mr. Chairman, I move that we adjourn to the next room. CExeunt.J ACT III SCENE I TIME: November 28, 1914. PLACE: f"Hole-in-the-Wall"J.

QAsbestos Curtainj K vis lv5 ' J 7 306 The Spina The Spider Spirit HE Spider spirit is more easily felt than defined. You can "hear the sound 5 ' thereof, but canst not tell whence it comes . ,K -K nor Whither it goes." It is more than a sound- l f it is an atmosphere which envelopes, a spirit which 65- iggfrre-gear, moves upon the expanse, a life which throbs and V a no tl'lI'illS. A Lyy--'5- The manifestations of this indefinable "something" are manifold. It throws its spell over the lowly "Rat" and gives him a feeling upon leaving college, at the end of the first session, akin to that which choked him when he babe good-bye to the "home-folks" and started to college. It hallows the halls and walks and fields and lake, so that they become sacred in his memory. It causes the bosom of the most indifferent student to swell with pride at the mention of "Spider." It binds the graduates with cords that lengthen and strengthen and draws them across distances to athletic contests and to the Commencements. The value of this spirit is beyond calculation. A modern college without en- dowment is an impossibility, but college spirit is worth more than endowment. It will raise endowment, and what is more, it will secure and hold students. Athletics are indispensable to college life, but "Spider Spirit" is the source and support of athletics. College publications and press reports are inHuential agencies for advertising the college, but they do not compare with college spirit. More valuable than any or all of these is that contagious enthusiasm for the col- lege which immediately transforms an acquaintance into a friend forever. It was Spider spirit that sent more Richmond College students to the Williams- burg game than there were in attendance at William and Mary, and that wrenched victory from their determined team, in the last half of the game. This same spirit conquered Hampden-Sidney at Farmville, and again on Broad Street triumphed over the same team fsupported by the Eastern Athletic Association as substitutesj.

Spider Spirit says: "In the class-room, scholarship shall be rewardedg in societies, ability shall be honoredg in athletics, merit shall have the preferenceg in all college life, character shall have the pre-eminence." Until recently this comment was current, "Richmond College lacks College Spirit." The justice of that criticism had to be admitted. In explanation thereof, it was said that we had no athletic fieldg that the college was over-shadowed by a great cityg that there was, in fact, no separate and distinctive college life. The removal to Westhampton destroyed these extenuating circumstances, and, even better, it removed the necessity for an apology. The college became a community in itself. Ample grounds and modern buildings give the impression of strength and permanence. Students no longer stroll down the street after lunch-they roam the woods or go to the stadium. After supper, they do not now resort, as formerly, in large numbers, to moving pictures and other forms of amusements, but rather they re- pair to their rooms for study. As a result, one sees twice as many lights burning in the dormitories now, as when the college was in the city. A change of environment has Wrought Wonders in college life. Give the buoyant spirit of the present student body full scope for rightful sway, and it will materially aid the college in achieving its high destiny. GEORGE W. IVICDANIEL, D. D.

Sllihtt 313 The Robbery of "Boaty's" Chicken Farm "The coclfs shrill clarion and the echoing horn nm A i . 1 v 4 . 1 Am D ' No more shall call him from their lowly bed!" FTER a vain endeavor to eke out an existence on the bounty pre- pared by the college, desperation seized upon a certain body of the the young college men and they resolved to seek elsewhere for much needed sustenance. Like money from home came rumor that there were an alluring number of "Chickens" in "Boaty's" custody across the lake-the feathered variety, of course-and remembering the oft-repeated statement by the afore- named party that "All I have now and forever is to be de- voted for the good of you boys," the young men resolved to draw . true Ethiopian technique, they chose a dark, dreary night and li it" -g, a practical illustration from such heroic patrlotism. And so, with ,f , L invaded the afore-mentioned hen roost, manifesting such dexterity and skill therein that it was evident that these were no untrained novices, by any means. However E f 5, , apart from the sentimental side, it was a dark and bloody deed- gruesome in the extreme. By a few well aimed and directed strokes of a keen knife in an ambidextrous hand, the happy home was deprived of two of its most promising maternal ancestors. Scarcely a squawk broke upon the serenity of the midnight air, and the only signs of the struggle were some footprints and scattered feathers mixed with blood in the snow. Back across the lake, culinary utensils of a wide variety were devised and here again the ingenuity of hungry Spiders was brought into play, for they obtained an electric pressing iron, and turning it bottom upwards, they had in their power a splendid grill. They revelled long and late, until it was early. Here ends act one, but the drama must push on. Act two introduces "Boaty" in a double role-that of the disappointed and outwitted shepherd, and also that of the victim of cruel circumstances. His hens- the hens of his tender love and care-were now no more. "Gone, but not for- gotten," he kept repeating to himself in dejected mutterings. He did not want revenge. But he did demand justice. His whole soul cried out for it. "I've got a line on the boobs, through one of my henchmen," he told Mr. Gouldsby, and im- mediately he summoned the suspects, in whose room the poor birds were reported to have been devoured. Then followed lengthy arguments behind closed doors. With a chilly stare "Boaty" fixed his eagle eye upon the suspects and began. "Some 314 EEIJ2 SUDIUBI guys got some fowls from my place and I was wised that they was cooked in your room. What about this foul doings?" "Yes, sir," they replied. "You are right, sir. We did it with our little hatchetsf' "Did you steal these here hens ?" "No, sirg but are you sure they were hens ?" "Yes, and I want to know what kind of a joint you are running over there, anyway. I don't suppose they were cooked Well enough to be very delectable." "But there, Doctor, you err gravely. We have had a very wide experience with chickens of many kinds, and we can truly say that these stand in our estimation as the premiers of their race. Never have we eaten such tender, delicious morsels before. We congratulate you' upon your keen judgment and sense of selection in choosing the fowls. So delicious, indeed, were they that for our part, no punishment would be deemed too severe as a price to pay. We are, sir, at your mercy, sirrahf' "Young men, I do not want your blood, nor the gore of those who did the dirty work. But we must have money. Times are hard, and chickens are high. Do not betray yourfriends. I do not ask it, for I have ample agents in my employ to find out whatever I wish. I shall make no threats against the dear boys-I love them the more since they E have sunk so low as to need my sympathy-but the loss touches I me with grief. I can accept no pay for the life of the hens I love I H A so well, but for their death there must be compensation, inade- quate though lt may be." At this point, overcome with grief, he could articulate no further. Finally, recovering his composure, he continued and delivered his ultimatum: "Twenty-eight dollars and eighty-six cents must they pay to the Athletic Association as the price of their folly and gastronomical lust by noon to-morrow, or dire will be the punishment that will follow swift and sure." So saying, he turned away with an air of finality and started figuring up how long it would take to build the gymnasium. The third and final act is brief, but sad. In those days of War and pestilence so huge a sum loomed up on the horizon as the unattainable limit extolled by 'Whiskers." There was no joy in the camp. Chicken became so unpopular that the culprits had a remorseful attack of involun- -gt. " tary nausea every time they so much as glimpsed a feather, and one sparrow chirp was enough to start a fight. "Mike" refused to buy their clothes and so one by one they carried all their household effects to the "Uncles,' in the big city, but the sum total of all' their efforts was but a paltry three dollars. Resignedly they paid in this amount and then threw themselves "upon de ign'ance of de Cote." They were leniently dealt with and paroled. Peace and quiet once more reigns on the campus. But they will never feel the same again. The play is ended! Jos. A.

O PESSIIVIISTIC persons who hold that college love affairs are not last- ing, we quote "l..essie" as a brilliant example to the contrary. From her hrst day at college, when he was presented to her as a toiling student, till now that he is about to hang out his shingle, when has she cast her eyes upon any other? And constancy is but one of her many charms. Celeste can shine in the social world, extract undreamed of sums for the scholarship fund, or conduct a class through the mazes of sub-Math. with unvary- ing success. Dr. Loving feels certain she is destined to startle the world of physics. Celeste cloes not go into anything half-heartedly. She is either for a thing or against it. She has occupied a central position in every college scrape. But when she takes a position she pushes ahead and accomplishes things. Her contagious enthusiasm and college loyalty are about to see the completion of the scholarship fund. A 324 Ghz Spiuer J JEANNETTE BRYCE. Q APPLICANT FOR B. A.

Many a trusting acquaintance has been deceived by her big blue eyes and flashing smile into beginning a conversation, only to be coolly annihilated the next moment. Whether this proclivity can be traced to a lack of time for such frivolities or to the simple contempt of a higher order of being for its inferior, we do not know, but it is there. On the other hand, Jeannette takes her studies seriously and at great length, especially senior physics, her devotion to which is truly admir- able. On the whole, she is one of the provokingly attractive and one of the most determined persons we have ever met, and we are sure she will make a most suc- cessful teacher-a career to which she eagerly looks forward.

She has fooled her professors into such a conception, but not us.

If he's a good sport and takes what she says, "Cum grano salis," he need not worry. l-ler latest fad is society, which bids fair to bank- rupt the self-government treasury for parties, and keeps us copying invitations when we should be otherwise engaged.

OR fear you will not know her by this name, we hasten to say that the sub- ject of the following speech is "Sup," our house president. Many, many years ago a fair Co-Ed came to Richmond College from the Eastern Shore. Besides acquiring proficiency in French and Spanish, she found time to be an all- round college girl, to enter into every phase of college life. Little did her sister Co-Ecls know for what high calling she was being prepared. When it was rumored amongst them that Louise had come to Westhampton College for her Senior year, some of them offered to tell us why, bringing with them an old black felt hat to prove their story. They say that in her junior year Louise had quite a fondness for writing fantastic notes for the bulletin board But we know why she came back. She returned to be our first superin- tendent, granter of "dates" across the lake, restrainer of our midnight revels, and a constant and helpful guide to inexperienced Freshmen. If every succeeding "Sup" can inspire the love and confidence that ours has, we predict a bright and happy future for Westhampton. ' CD2 QILUUZI 32? MARY COURTENAY SHINE APPLICANT FOR B. A.

EREXS our "Shiney," a very good picture, though she doesn't think it does her nose justice, but you know it's hard for small members to get proper representation. A picture can't give you any idea of our capable small president, because it is silent. "Shiney" never is. Ask her Phil. professor, or any of the boys would do. As president of our class, she has helped us hold down the very pleasant, but diflicult job of being Seniors.

We have been held up for clubs and shipped off to town to get our pictures "took" in a most business-like manner by this small lady.

The Juniors sought a handsome groom to match Miss Freshman fairg they found Stella. The juniors sought in- spired plans to make their May Day live for e'erg they asked Stella. The Juniors sought for knowledge rare to help them win the verdict upassedng and again they asked Stella. And here's the climax! Stella filled the bill every time. Surely her name is no misnomer, for her star shines to illuminate the pathway of others. FRIEDA DIETZ "And all the beauty of the place Is in thy heart and in thy face, Thy step is as the mind that weaves lls playful may among the leaves, Thine eyes are springs in whose serene And silent waters, heaven is,.seen." Frieda has all of these poetic qualities, but guard against being deceived by her sparkling eyes and Janice Meredith curly for besides this very desirable stock in trade, she has good old-fashioned ability and "stick-to-it-iveness." When the day of reckoning comes, despite the fact that she is sweet, and she is coy, and she has strings on many a boy," Frieda always comes ott with the plaudit "well done." SALLIE WILLS HARLAND "On bravely through the sunshine and the showers! Time has his work to do and me have ours." Sallie Wills is like an india rubber ball, not that she is in the least bit "soft," but no matter how hard she is cast down she always bounces up again. Even the erring Chi Epsilons cannot shatter her courage! And she goes on gamely, with time for work and time for play, and, even then, she is never too busy to give her fellow-travelers a responsive smile of good cheer. ELIZABETH, HUTCHINSON There are three characteristics of Elizabeth that must be noted here. The most notable is her forgetfulness. This is manifested particularly. in respect to the whereabouts of her history notes. The next in prominence is her persistency in having cases, dreadful cases, of the "blues." This fact makes us appre- ciate all the more, however, when she has come softly out from under their reeking influence, that Elizabeth really possesses the qualities of a friend "as is always ready to help others." ' CD2 Sllliiltt MARGARET JAMES "I framed her ear to music, I armed her hand with skill, I moulded her face to beauty, And her heart the throne of mill." Oh, yes, Margaret has all of these qualities. Have we not heard her play the grand old hymns in chapel with s.1ch power that we have wanted to shout "Old Time Religion?" Her ability in extorting shelcels from the grim clutches of Westhampton students for subscriptions to the Collegian is proof of the skill of her hands. Her hidden smile and the tyrannical dominion of will from its throne are so manifest that "he who runs may read." HELEN MONSELL "The calm of self reliance." We all admire and envy Helen, because she always lmows, and she knows that she knows. But because her opinion is worth while in philosophy and because she knows ever so much Math. and German and English ancl the rest, do not imagine that she lives only with her books. Oh, no! She plays basket-hall wellg the Junior Class could not do without her, nor the Literary Society: and aside from these activities she finds time to write poetry for the Messenger and to attend the opening meetings and the other social functions given across the Lake. MAUD WOODFIN "Maud is here, here, here." Thafs what the history students say, and forthwith begin to study their lessons. Nothing phases Maud-she sails calmly through English IV. and Latin IV., and History is mere play to her. She is one of the girls who came to us only this last fall, but already she has a very definite place in our college life and activities. Maud is loyal to the Woman's College, we all know: but no one who saw her with her arms full of cedar can deny that she is loyal to us, too. - NORMA OVERTON WOODWARD "1 saw her again A fair girl of eighteen, Fresh glittering with graces Of minfl ana' of mien. Her speech was all music: Lilfe moonlight she shone The envy of many The glory of ana." There is not a girl in our Junior Class who would exhibit any show of petty envy or vicious hatred or monster jeal- ousy, or any of those horrid things often attributed to women when compliments are being paid others of their sex.

A glimmering run: of mist girl tight, The gloomy murmuring of the wood, .4nrl yonder a shadow looming darli- Where the hill hends over and disappears: And the valley sweeps away to the right, To the sheltering hill like a maiden's hood, From which she peeps and whispers, "Harlf!' Harlf to the coming years." There stately stand the silent hills Lilfe sentinels watching the grave of old, And the stolen ray of the long sunlg sun Dances in mirth on the lalfe's broad hreast, Wlrere the trees sing bass to the airy rills And the wind winds slowly across the mold: A trifle of sorrow and much of fun, All topped with a dream of rest. Lilfe quaint old castles the buildings rise, Lilfe some old turret, moss grown, gray: Witll a legend and myth for every stone And a dream of fear for door and case: There the rows of lights lilfe human eyes Look over the hills and far away- Loolg over the fields to a distant home- To the season's relay race. What luring the years to this pristine shore? What adds the spot to the wealth of time? A thousand souls pulse here anew, The heart of the world is rich within: An echo comes, "Fon-:vermore The new horn thought, the unlfissed rhyme: The death to doubt and life to the true, And eternal curse to sin." -R.

Here, however, the introduction of dyeing, weaving, and butter-making have rendered more complicated the education of the girl, so that she must now be taught house-manage- ment, necessitated by the introduction of the above mentioned arts and of furniture, bronze mirrors, and bronze household utensils. THE IRON AGE i The Iron Age ushers in the martial period. Men were busied chieliy with war and great feats in the mead-hall, while the women brewed the ale, wove garments and tapestries, and served their lords, who gamed or slept in the mead-hall, or tithe Spina 353 divided spoils of war. Loud was the sound Q If F wigfl ' I of the harp as the minstrel sang of wondrous -LT l Efqlxiu-A deeds of valor, splendid the gifts of golden ZQ.3mE I T171 -L I helmets, corslets, and jeweled swords to re- nowned heroes in the hall. Then the noble in queen among her women offered the ale-cup first to the lord of the land, and afterward Qw iii - bore it from earl to earl. i V if U'l"fy THE DARK AGES During the Dark Ages learning suffered a great eclipse, but a nun of Gandersheim, Hros-Witha by name, wrote six plays based on Latin models, and thereby kept alight the torch of knowledge. Had not a woman thus come to the rescue, who can say but that the course of all subsequent history might have been changed? H THE AGE. OF CI-IIVALRY At this period women have begun to M DI p ' come into their own, for does not Chaucer p A tell us of the prioress, the Lady Eglantine. 41, Mum -rfmrvfn, who kept a select boarding-school for the ml N5 daughters of the courtiers of Edward HL? tm ' Here instruction in French was given, and rf although the pronunciation was not that of Ig - Paris, yet the poet assures us that manners, especially table manners, were well cared for. Undoubtedly this school was the forerunner of the female seminary, which has only recently been banished after a violent struggle. History tells us also of Olympia lVlorata, the wife of a Heidelburg professor of the fourteenth century, who, herself, lectured in Latin at the university. So beautiful was she that all lectures had to be conducted from behind a curtain, in order to preserve the youth from the dangers of such charms. This would seem, however, to have been rather an exceptional case. 354 EIDE Sipiilell TI-IE PURITAN PERIOD The Puritan Revolution revived the old I-Iebraic idea of woman and her place in the social scheme. Milton has once for all expressed the idea in "Paradise Lost," where he says of the first man and Hrst woman, "He for God only, she for God in him." I-Iumbly Eve looks up to her "Author and disposer, what thou bid'st unargued I obey. So God ordainsf' Little did Eve dream of the heretical doctrine of ELQXLXI V V H'-16--524555 Femlnia her descendants would evolve in the um: Il WF X, twentieth century. 2 Mm 9 . . It I Wl 'l imi' . I Throughout the Puritan period, woman ' ll ll l I cared for her lord and master's com- 1: ' 45 31 7 fort in every way, and was even taught A ll to pronounce Latin, Italian and French f' 535221, I-.ii-QT merely to enable her the better to read to the lords of crieationg she was not permitted to translate these tongues for herslf, lest it corrupt the crystal purity of her virgin mind, fit only for household tasks. This clinging vine type persisted during the eighteenth century and well over into the nineteenth, past Jane Austin, with all her heroines so tender in sensibility that they retired behind a door to weep at the slightest provocation. TI-IE GOLDEN AGE With- the close of the nineteenth century dawned the Golden Age in woman's education. The battle had been fought and Won by I-Iros-witha, Olympia, and all those pioneers of the sixties-Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and others. To-day a girl is free to choose, on the one hand, the Vocational Training of her prehistoric great-grandmother, coupled with the Domestic Science of her Bronze Age grandmotherg or, on the other, .,.o the classic training of a I-Iros-witha or 'X an Olympia Morata. She may even com- ' we promise on a mixture of the two. Never W before has such perfect equality existed 427 in the education of the boy and the girl. A, Even in sports the same holds true: while D ai-,gf the boy kicks the ball to its goal, the girl, ever more skilful with her hands, tosses hers into a basket, but they both play ball. This is certainly as it should be, and We would pay our lasting tribute to all these women from our cave-dwelling great-grandmother down fPuritan great-aunt al- ways exceptedj, for the noble contributions they have made to the progress of education for women.

Every student of Westhampton joins in with her heartiest cheer and feels a delicious thrill when for once she can give full voice to her approval of "our coach." It was doubt- ful in the beginning of the session whether much interest in l . athletics could be fostered this first year. There were no former Ii. . L 2 E r ii ,tg - G ii victories to uphold and it was impossible to enter any contests with other colleges on account of the limited number of students at Westhampton. But certainly there is now no doubt about the interest. Practically every student in college has taken a part in basket-ball, gymnasium, track or tennis. And why? The one great reason is because West- hampton has as her physical director-a woman who is herself an enthusiast in all forms of athletics and who has the power of inspiration and of instilling in every student the right spirit and a love of true sport. .

But the shapetess form of a fate unknown Has many a stout heart quelledg Yet a horror grim, whose darkness flown, How oft hath the fear dispelted. Not fear, but hope made the strong man stop To summon his nerve of steel: The last wild aim! will it reach the top? 'Tis a cast for woe or meat. At the door of hope-of fateful hope, How many souls are lost! It is not oft on the icy slope, But when the chasm is crossed. So hope is the fire that tries the soul, And a chord uncaught is a heart chord torn: So must a daring will control He whom the crown will adorn. Leave life and light for death and dark, Leave a known for an unknown wave: The changing tide, the fitful spark, Will luring new hope to save. So stand, fair saint, on an unwashed shore, And launch thy ship on the main: The glorious past may return no more, But a better will come again. Leave the sordid clay for the singing call Of nature rich and rare: Leave the homespun first for the hopes that fall About theeeverywhere. And reap rich fields of truth and life, The life at a nation's heart: Oh, College! stand, whate'er the strife For the noblest, purest part. -R. L. Bausum sa Q gi E Qfl Qii E3 , 5.

FEBRUARY 17TH The Rats and Sophs battle for basket-ball cup in the old Thomas Art Hall. The Rats are victori- ous, the feature of the game being the lusty rooting. , V 1 t il 1 Q I il ll 'ff - "ag p A CD2 SlJiU2l: The Silly Seniors Ceteste's our mathematician you know Who must have each angle just so.

Our Margaret is next in the line, Who for each made a cute valentine: Each one hit the marif, For at jokes tWag's a sharif, Ami each joife was unusually fine. Our next is tgnown as "Supa" Reams, t! oa As House President she's surely a bean: But she's a gooct old sport, too, And true blue, through and through Ami her fotfes keep us att in a scream.

We recognize the emma fact that, by all the usages and customs, we should here give voice to some high sounding phrases, depicting our pride of accomplishment and our deep regret of apparent unworthiness. Nevertheless, we are not going to travel in the well-worn trail of the past. We are going to take this last opportunity of saying just what we think and how We feel, Our work is at an end and We lay the finished book before you. Our labors have been inspired by deep and genuine love for our Alma Mater and for the lives and spirits representing her. Much that we had desired has been found impossible of present achievement. However, within the meagre limits surrounding us, we have wrought to the best of our ability. If the book is worthy of the cause, we are happyg if it is not, we have no apologies to offer! And now, as We pass on into the vale of "the has- beens," we comfort ourselves by saying in the words of "Bill" Shakespeare, "Well, we seen our duty: and, by-gum, we done ii!" - Zlbherttsements 4 q-o-.4-o-o-o-e-o-p..-p...q.o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o--o-o-o-o Q ll'0'Ov3'O'Z'Q'1'O'9'Q'30l4i'C'3'O4i'l'3'O0i0QlZ"l !
