We ask you to share our college days with us in the rest of the book but this department ought to recall your own happy college days. There seems to have been no official list of alumnae since the Croceus gave it up and because of the desire for it expressed by many of the girls, we offer it to you. If you will pardon mistakes you may find and send in corrections we would be very grateful. T1-IE CLASS OF 1916. To the girls of the l9l6 Class: The yearly issue of the Croceus is always an event of interest to the alumnae, for it serves to put them in touch again with college life. This yearis issue has more than the usual interest, however, as it is the first since the opening of the new women's buildings. So different are your new surroundings from those of our own college days that it seems to us alumnae almost as if you were attending a different college from the one of our own student memories. But your thoughtfulness in making our annual Christmas reunion an occasion also to renew an acquaintance with you served to bridge the gap and remind us anew of the closeness of our connection with you. I am sure that I speak for the alumnae when I wish for the class of l9l6 and the rest of the college girls, success in all the undertakings of the year, and assure you of our constant. sympathy and interest. Very sincerely yours, FRANCES ANGEVINE GRAY, President of the Alumnae Association. Dear Girls: If you come to Manila for any length of time, you must keep house. There are com- fortable hotels, one of them as luxurious as those in our large summer resorts, but you will miss a chance to develop your sense of humor and patience and to know the Filipino at close range, if you do not choose a house CI advise a Spanish house, and have a menage of your own. We live in large rooms here, with high ceilings and two thirds of the wall space devoted to uwindowsf, which are great openings five or six feet wide, running from Hoor to ceiling, never closed except in case of typhoon weather. Our homes- are very simply furnished without rugs or curtains, and devoid of superlluities. One of the beauties of every house in Manila fexcepting, of course, the native shacks, which are made of woven palmj is the Hoor. In is of a native wood which responds easily to a bit of wax and your house-boy's sliding up and down it on soft, thick pads. "Ninety in 37 -2 U 'fl cnocrzus 6, . I .' K g -5 the shade" is a fair average of our temperature during the hot part of the day and you are quite willing to endure the funny, or even inconvenient mistakes that even the best of house-boys and cooks make in their work as well as in their speech. I gave Tiburcio some white kid gloves to clean fhe had assured me he knew how to do it, in gaso- linel and I saw the poor things lying in a bowl of cold water, "to make them soft first, Mom." I congratulate myself on having a cook whose chief fault is his treatment of the English language. I-Ie said only this morning, as we were discussing the menus for the day, "Mom, I have killed everybody, Mom," but he only meant that there were no more chickens. And when I gave him a new recipe yesterday, he came into the sala to ask a friend and myself, 'sMom, how many wunces in a pound, Mom?', It is only the very raw boy who puts ice-cream on the stove until it is wanted, but you must be prepared for anything. Your day in Manila is not, as a rule, an energetic one. In the morning, you read, write, sew, practice, shop, or attend a Hmorning bridge," at noon you have your Htiflinf, and then comes the most characteristic hour of the day. All the Phillippines go to sleep-the native has partaken of his rice and fish fwith his fingers, of coursej and drops off into a sound' sleep, the white people prepare for bed as though it were darkest midnight and yield to the hot sleepy feeling that conquers everyone after a short struggle against Hthis ridiculous habit of sleeping in the daytimef, You do not rise until four, and at five you are ready for your afternoon. It is a choice of calling, tea, bridge, tennis, golf, dancing or a drive-and there you have the only diversions to be enjoyed at any hour, at any season, in Manila. Last spring Maud Allen danced here, and since then we have had nothing but a wretched Spanish opera company and a worse Australian one., But one resigns one's self and looks forward all the more eagerly to "going home." There will be many things that I shall miss and I know that I shall often hear "the call of the Eastf, most often I think at sunset time. There can be nothing like the sunset on Manila Bay-wild splashes of color and brilliant lines of cloud on one day and the most appealing of pastels and the vaguest of outlines the next. Of all the things that a stay in the Phillippines gives one, an acquaintance with a strange people, a sight of unusual country and customs, the deepest experience is the appreciation of "home.', We s-hall be back in a year, and I really hope to come in time for one of our l9l0 reunions. I have missed all but one and as before, I must send you my greetings by post. I am going to tack my post office box number at the end of this letter, so that if you want to drop me a line in reply, it will be sure to reach me. Yours most sincerely, MINNIE HOCHSTEIN I-IERSCHLER. Box 449. 38 CROCEUS . EK C ALUMNAE OF THE UNIVERSITY OF ROCHESTER CLASS OF l90I Ella Salome Wilcoxen, Macedon, N. Y. Mary Lewis Deland, Attica, N.

History should pursue a practical objectg it's very essence should be truth. I-Ierein then, we shall endeavor to describe truthfully to you how the sophomores marshalled events for us in our freshman year, and how We marshalled events for the-freshmen in 48 CROCEUS our sophomore year, and grew to know and love each other better in our select little locker room on the second floor of Andersong how as juniors, we petted and cared for our baby sisters of 1917 and tried to lead their baby feet into paths of studiousness and thoughtfulness, especially impressing upon their infant minds the respect they owed to upper class women. And finally how as seniors, we covered ourselves with glory in the pro- duction of our l-lindu play, and acted as bright and shining lights to guide other classes along the paths of duty. All the parties we had given us in the fall term, when we were wee, timid freshmen, we learned later had not been prompted by the unselfish motives with which we, in our innocence, had credited them: and were told to our great amazement and anxiety that we, in our turn, were supposed to entertain the other two classes. We rallied nobly to our duties, and our own lawn party to which we asked all the girls was the result. We were the first class to have the brilliant idea of combining- the three parties into one, and every- one thought us very clever little girls. - So much praise added to the Hbumpsl' on our heads which were necessary before we could qualify as sophomores. We needed all the bumps we could get, too, as 1916 was a class worthy of our mettle, and all our self-assurance and self-conceit was nec- essary in order to cope with theirs. We look back with many smiles upon those dear old 'ipeacefulw days for which we had to fight, and recall with satisfaction that we came out 'ion top,', in spite of the fact that every one thought those little Hnuisancesu so very clever. As "jolly juniors," we passed a year which we left with great regret. We felt we could be as jolly and as happy as we wished, and share with the seniors the honors of being upper class women, without sharing their responsibilities of being guides and patterns to the other girls. However, we had a task of our own to perform, and a mighty one it was, and accomplished worthily as befitted a class with such talents as ours possessed. "We learned to beard the lions in their den and extract ads from business menf' We learned many other things also in the publishing of our I9 l 5 Croceus. The best among them were the lessons learned in co-operation, in patience and in perseverance, which knit us more firmly together as a class and which helped us to find ourselves and to find others. Talents which had lain hidden were brought to light and adorned the pages of our class book, while like a guardian spirit our editor-in-chief presided over all. Besides by our book, we also made ourselves famous that year by establishing a precedent among the women in adopting the freshman class as our "little sistersf, Early in the fall each junior had one frightened "little baby," whom she took to her Warm, sisterly heart and for whom she was particularly responsible. In short, any mental or moral training which had been neglected or overlooked by the parents and faculty, A 49 CROCEUS H C was undertaken by the "big" junior sister. Under our care and protection, our Hbabiesu have grown fastg and when we leave them, we feel confident that they will make even better "big sisters" to the coming class of l9l9 than we have been to them. In the fall of l9l4 we came back to college feeling almost as strange as the members of I9 l 8, in our beautiful new buildings. The sight of old familiar faces reassured us and we were soon exchanging summer adventures with our classmates, and mothering all the little girls who were wandering around looking so forlorn and lost. The great event of the fall term of our last year was our senior play. Characteris- tically, we tried paths untrodden before and produced an Oriental play written by Tagore with the scene laid in India and with an Oriental cast. Qnly those in the play will ever know how hard we worked, but the result produced was worth all our efforts and the congratulations heaped upon us more than repaid all our trouble. The praises given us by Miss Munro, Professor Frazier and Dr. Slater sounded especially sweet to our ears, as we rely unquestionably upon their good judgment, and when said, "The acting was excellentgn that "The stage setting was beautiful and a work of artf' that HThe senior women had established a precedent in senior plays that the other classes would find it difficult to follow," and many other congratulatory phrases, we walked in the clouds, and felt that it was good to be a member of l9l5. H Our senior parties, which we have every month at the home of one of the members of the class, are drawing us closer together and enriching friendships whose bright mem- ories will linger by us all through life. It was only at our last meeting that we were recalling many adventures that have happened during our four years together. Perhaps some of them will be revealed to the world on Class Day by the historian. Who knows? Now the Class of 1915 bids the readers of the Croceus farewell. No more will its pages be dazzled by stories of great deeds done by us. We have worked together, played together, loved one another and in a friendly way have criticized each other for mistakes that have been made. But now we are saddened with the thought that work and play, love and friendly criticisms are ours as a class for only a few months more. We not only have to say good-bye to our fellow students, the faculty and the halls of our Alma Mater, but to each other. Ours is the first class to leave the 'protecting shelter of our grey stone walls. We have spent a happy year together in these new buildings of ours and we shall ever feel grate- ful that we were able to enjoy the privileges of thelwomenls college buildings for our last year together. 50 C R 0 C E U S Y THE SENIOR CLASS RUTH JEANETTE ALEXANDER, 713 Park Avenue, Rochester, N.

COMBS JUNIOR HISTORY And now came the children of l9l6 into the University of Rochester and all the souls which belonged to this tribe were thirty and eight. And' it came to pass that a new dynasty ruled here,A which knew not the high school careers of the children and these rules did say, MBe- hold the children of 1916 are more and mightier than we." Therefore these task- masters did' attempt to inflict all manner of burdens upon them and the upper class- men did make the youthful tribe serve with rigor. The faculty strove to make their lives bitter with hard bondage in mathematics, rhetoric and Latin. More- over, the sophomores did wish to destroy the feast which the children of 1916 did prepare, but the children were long suffer- ' it' cnoctzus 9 ,inn ing, cheerful and wise and did' arise early from their couches to partake of the feast and thus escaped the persecutions of the tribe of 1915. And these sophomores again did' strive to chasten the mighty children of 1916 with fear for they did lead them through dark places and did make all manner of noises, but the sturdy children did defy them even in the face of such fearsome evils and the taskmasters did despair of chastening the children of 1916. Moreover these wise and un- daunted children did heap coals of fire upon their oppressors. For each one in turn did they prepare a feast clay and they did likewise for their kind sisters who were then known as the juniors. They also did plan and execute a great celebration to which they did invite all those who re- mained faithful to them in their bondage. In this did the tribe of 1916 show their talent and wisdom in the art of speech for henceforward all those tribes who suc- ceeded into the bondage repeated this day of celebration. Thus did' the year of bondage in Egypt, which, being interpreted, is the freshman year, pass and the children of 1916 did become aware of their oppression and did resent the same, and they did rise up and tear their bonds and betook themselves in- to the wilderness of Sophomore Year through which they must pass on their journey to the promised land. iAlthough ofttimes the wilderness 'was made fearsome with such evils as Chem- istry and Tacitus, the undaunted Hock did pass through it in ablaze of triumph. 1-lere they did encounter an enemy which at first appeared formidable because of the great numbers, but they, too, fell be- fore the strength of 1916. After the one encounter in which the children of 1916 did sorely affright the children of 1917, the two tribes did adopt friendly relations one to another. Once in every month did the children of 1916 proclaim a day of rejoicing and feasting in honor of the day of nativity of the members thereof. Not even in the days of the wandering in the wilderness did the children of 1916 neglect to improve their inherent talent for the portrayal of dramas, which were be- held by the curious and admiring children of the other tribes. So, cheered by song, mirth and unity, the family journeyed through the wilderness until, strengthened by the rigors and trials of the year in bondage and the year in wandering, the children reached the plains of Moab, or when interpreted-Junior Year. Now it so came to pass that in this year these strong and worthy children did find an appropriate place in which they might pursue their illustrious and successful course. By the hardships and triumphs of the two years which did preceed this one, the children of 1916 had attained for added' dignity. There- fore when a new tribe did join them, which numbered two and seventy, they did take them to their hearts and did teach them the road upon which their young and inexperienced feet should tread. These CROCEUS- lvl children of 1918 in turn did greatly love their elders and did aid and cooperate with them in all their undertakings. Now a great battle was fought which they did call a tournament and these doughty children of 1916 and 1918 did make a brave showing and did defeat and humili- ate the tribes which did oppose them. It came to pass also that in the plains of Moab the children of 1916 were num- bered, and those who had survived the hardships numbered one and thirty and these did make a record of the days which they had spent in their bondage and wan- derings and they did call this record the "Croceus.,' In this same were written down all the great and noteworthy achieve- ments of the children of 1916. And again. they did prove their great and wonderful gift of entertaining and through the proclamation of festivals which they did call Junior Jolls they did gain small amounts of silver wherewith they might produce the book aforementioned, by means of which all the world might learn of the powers of the children of 1916. And now steadfastly and hopefully these children of 1916 stand on the border of their Promised Land. Bound by ties of love because of their common experi- ences of sorrows and joys, cares and pleas- ures, they do hold high hopes for the fu- ture when they shall have attained their Promised Land of Senior Year. And, though it come to pass that there may be many enemies to conquer and though they must part into their various districts in this great Land of Promise, the children of 1916 will always hold dear the years of loyal friendships which they did spend on their journey from bondage into the Promised Land. i WHEN WE WERE FRESHMEN A LEAF PRO JUNIOR X MOECMAO Q 5,4 XX j jg i ,.

I-IALE Vice-President, CLAIRE HOGAN Secretary, BESSIE CROSS Treasurer, RUTH ROWORTI-I Historian, JANE SALTER SOPHOMORE HISTORY "There's not a ship that sails the ocean, But every climate, every soil, Must bring its tribute, great and small, And help to build the wooden wall,"- 0n that eventful day of late September, girls from far and Wide gathered about the bulletin board in Anderson Hall in preparation for the embarkment of the ship of l9l 7, on the next morning. What a beautiful ship it was! Each term that carries her farther out to sea increases her strength, and proves the great unity and cohesion of every part. Many novel ideas have originated with the class of l9l7. Last May we hung 80 , lcnocrzus , a dainty May basket on the knob of our dean's ofhce door. We surprised our Ubig sisters" at a spread, by the arrival of a basket of fruit to grace the center of their table. Because of a misunderstanding over our freshman spread we established a new precedent which did away with all hostility between freshmen and sophomores. Therefore our banquet, which was held in February at the Century Club, took place without inter- ruption, save the presentation of a rattle by the class of l9l6. We had left all our "entertaining" for the spring term. Poor- foolish freshmen! We little knew how much must be crowded into those three short months. We bravely rose to the occasion, however, and gave to each class a party befitting their dignity. To the seniors we gave a "regular party" with ice-cream and cake! At the jolliest picnic in Webster, we played hostess to our junior sisters. The sophomores were invited to a sausage roast, but, because the day proved cold and damp, we entertained in the parlors of Anderson l-lall. . Other classes helped to make our freshman year a happy one. The juniors gave us a party, and early in the spring the gym classes held a dance to which the sophomores came as men, and the freshmen as girls. This was the first dance of this kind, and we had such a delightful time that we hope there will be another. So our first year passed, and before we realized it, we were sophomores. Along in October, tales of the terrible treatment to be given the freshmen at the sophomore l-lalloweien party spread about the college, so that when we summoned them to appear with their 'lcrowning beauty" arranged in seventeen pig-tails they trembled, and only after long persuading would they explore Hades. Nevertheless we gave them a most enjoyable evening and sent them home, much better acquainted' with us. The class has always shown an earnest wish and effort for more college spirit. This is reflected' in the class song by one of our members, which we sang after one of our "spreads" When we serenaded the other classes with it the next day in the lunch- room, it met with great applause, and with confetti from the seniors, who had learned our secret the evening before. I will close this history as we ended our song: "One nine one seven, Is the best of the four, We have thirty-and-eleven Of brilliant sophomores. Not a single soul llunked Horace,- Just try to do as well, You never could surpass us, We're so unusualf, fTune: The Wearing of the Greenj Sl SOPHOMORE CLASS CROCEUS H C Tl-1E SOPI-IOMORE CLASS.

The Students' Association which includes every student in college has had a year of unusual achievement. In connection with the transition to the new and attractive home, there devolved upon the Students' Association new problems to settle and new traditions to form. All these were bravely met, and foundations for a long and happy life in Catha- rine Strong I-Iall and Anthony Memorial I-Iall have been laid. Among the new departures of the Association may be mentioned the taking over of the management of college dramatics by that organization upon the dissolution of the Dramatic Club. A joint reception with the Alumnae, held during the Christmas vacation, proved a delightful experiment, and, it is hoped, will become a custom. The other time-honored events, the opening reception, the banquet, the college play, the gym stunt, and the spring, reception are occurring in due order. FIFTEENTI-I ANNUAL BANQUET.

TRUESDELL , lcnociazus g , DRAMATICS Amusingly various were the considerations which led the Rochester girls, last year, to turn their eyes longingly on those gray, scaffold-wreathed structures soon to be their college home. To many, however, nothing was so dear, so full of delightful possibilities as the thought of a real stage, with curtains and scenery all our own. l-low much it meant, only those who have tried screening off one end of the study room, and adopting perforce, some of the Shaksperean devices for indicating a change of scene, can appreciate. l-low the girls of 'I4 must have revelled in the chance to order those lovely screens of modern im- pressionistic style, with the helpful advice of Miss O'Connor and Miss Eleanor Gleason, and the enthusiastic cooperation of lVlr. Lowenguth and Mr. Butler who designed and executed the scenery. ' "The Cavalier," by Dr. Slater, which was given before the buildings were entirely completed, drew a crowded houseg and while the 'iAlumni and friends of the University" were enjoying the graceful performance of that charming poetical drama, we undergrad- uates felt an undercurrent of suppressed ecstacy over the vision of our dreams come true. Nor has our enthusiasm for the new equipment suffered any lapse. A long succession of entertaining performances this year, has borne witness to the dramatic ability of the Rochester maid. HThe Kaleidoscopef' the Christmas entertainment by the Freshmen, and the senior play, "The Post Officefl have all been the best affairs of their kind, while the monthly "Junior Jollsl' have afforded no end of amusement to enthusiastic audiences of college girls. In "The Post Officen by Rabindranath Tagore, the atmosphere of Oriental poetry and mysticism was caught and held from the start. A background of rich brown harmonies- Indian draperies and rugs, brass censers, lamps and images, set off the rarely picturesque costumes, which the girls themselves had designed and made. Simple and quiet as was the story of a little sick child who sat and spun bright fancies about the Watchman, the dairyman, and all who passed his Window, there was yet something about it that dimmed the eyes of more than one in the audience. The big play of the year, under the management of the Dramatic Council and the direction of Mr. Frazier, was Browning's "Colombe,s Birthdayf' presented on the even- ing of March fifth. This play, the most difficult which hasras yet been attempted, was carried through with a subtlety of interpretation, a skill and hnish unusual in amateur productions. Here again, the setting and costumes combined historical accuracy with an attention to color and grouping which made the play a succession of pleasing stage pictures. Dramatic work is surely one of the most worth-while activities of our college lifeg and 97 ' .sph 2 CROCEUS S ,k s I , p -as t our appreciation of this fact was demonstrated last spring, when it was voted to do away with the Dramatic Club as a separate organization, and establish it as a department under the Students, Association. This made dramatics in every sense a college activityg each girl now contributes to its support and takes pride in its accomplishments. The organization at present consists of a General Manager, elected by the Students' Association, and associates whom she appoints, the whole group forming the Dramatic Council. The work of the council this year has been largely pioneer effort, owing to new environ- ment and larger opportunities. It is the ambition of the members of the council to hand down a record of their methods, their experiments, successful and otherwise, and also the beginnings of what, it is hoped, will some day become a valuable dramatic library.

W. C. A. Our college Y. W. C. A. has passed through another circle of months. Our position, our work, during this year has been uniqueg the problems which have come have been the old, old problems but they have taken new forms, incident to the readjustment of all our college activities. The Association has not branched out into new linesg no spec- tacular event or work is to be found upon the pages of its records. By seeking to help every member of the student body to become acclimated to her new home, and to find her place in the student life there, the Association has in turn become acclimated, is in turn finding its place in the student life. The hearty interest and support of the student body as a whole has been apparent in every line of the Work. It is too soon to judge resultsg many opportunities of all kinds have been neglectedg some, we trust, have been capably grasped. All we can hope is that the foundations we have laid this year may pave the way, even though inadequately, for a stronger Association in coming years. The house party enjoyed by the Cabinet just before the opening of college was the mountain top from which we viewed the work ahead of us, and the inspiration derived from those few days at the summer home of Mrs. Hale at Forest Lawn has done much to make us a happy family.

Come and be glad, And sadly sail away, Only don't forget to sail Back another day." Happily a whole boatful of girls sang this farewell as the Silver Bay grounds re- ceded into the background of thickly wooded mountains. We were sad, too, as we realized that the Silver Bay Conference was turning into history as the boat neared the end of Lake George. Not until the sevenbhundred girls had separated for different parts of the United States and we were settled in the train did' we realize our good fortune in having been together. At first we thought of the jolly good timesg how we played tennis and basket ball, swam in races, climbed for a half-hour to Sunrise Mountain from where we saw the beautiful hills and lakes for miles and milesg how we raced away in the launches to Ticonderoga, singing merrily and listening to Indian tales of Lake George all the way. And we smiled at the thought of the pleasant twilights when the college delegations gave their funny stunts, and each vied with each in jolly college songs. The busy mornings came back to us, and we saw hundreds of white-robed girls Hocking along the rustic bridges and steep paths to their Bible and mission classes, where enthusi- astic groups with splendid teachers were learning to solve practical problems of life by means of the Bible. There were dear little Chinese girls and others faltogether thirty foreignersj, who won our hearts, and their friendship with American girls gave promise of the coming sisterhood of all races 'of women. In the auditorium meetings, morning and evening, every speaker emphasized the keynote of the conference,-that as college women we should remember our responsibility to all sisters. After the evening meetings as we climbed up the hill to our little veranda delegation meetings, with only man's tiny lanterns below and God's manifold starry lights above, Silver Bay became a true mountain-top experience. Now as we look back upon the happy time through a longer vista, the Silver Bay girls of l9l4 have no more sincere wish for girls of succeeding classes than that they may pack their trunks and take an early train on a June morning for ten glorious, full, satisfying days at Silver Bay. Go, all that can, and get the Silver Bay spirit. It is worth while for every one and we want it here. ONE OF THE 1914 DELEGATION. IO6 CROCEU H! 1 , J f 'G W w V 'WN ff wQQ?'

All the sessions of the conference were held in the First Methodist Church. Dr. L. Powell, president of William Smith and Hobart Colleges opened the conference with a word of welcome to the delegates. One meeting was devoted to various reports as to how the missionary problem was being met in the different colleges, and what success had resulted. All of the meetings were of great interest. Many well known men tallied' of the opportunities, and the need for Christian college women in the foreign field. They referred particularly to the special need of non-Christian lands in this world's crisis, and the chal- lenge of the great opportunity which is placed before Christian men and women. This convention was not only for those who have responded to the call, and have given their lives for the glory of God, but for those who desire to gain the inspiration which comes from hearing such men as Professor Sam l-ligginbottom, and Rev. W. I. Chamber- lain. The girls left the conference filled' with enthusiasm and inspiration, keeping before them the one impelling motive, as expressed' in the motto of the Student Volunteer 'The Evangelization of the World in This Generation." s O, cease, ye warring nations From impious, cruel strife! Will ye yield to all temptatious, Disregarding Christian life? Tho, your trust in God' seems gone O, sinful men in power! For the heathen 'tis the dawn When their faith would burst in Hower. They have listened when we told Of His peace and love for them. Wonlt that glorious love grow cold If they're taught to love all men? Should they think that earthly will Overshadows the Supreme? That each wish man may fulhll And make real each human- dream? When I-lindus fight the Christians, Urged on byihope of gain, Hired by a Christian brother, Who must pay the price in shame? O, cease ye warring nations From impious, cruel strife! Will ye yield to all temptations, Disregarding Christian life? E. D.

"A Student Volunteer Convention! l-lere? Oh, when? Well, just what is it any- way?', Next winter Rochester will be the center into which will flock a few of the most select students from each of the colleges and seminaries of central and western New York, together with wonderful and inspiring speakers from all parts of the world. Perhaps no greater stimulus, no more vitalizing energy can be brought to our Alma Mater than the sojourn, short though it may be, of fresh, spirited college men and womeng and surely nothing can so strengthen and make permanent this stimulus as the purpose of their sojourn: by conference and prayer to study the conditions which they, as world citizens, are about to face, and to shape their lives for the most efficient and satisfactory mastery of those conditions. If Rochester is to take unto herself this blessing which is so freely offered, she must lay down next to the energy which is brought to her, her own strength to the last degree. Nor is this any slight consideration, for it demands the conscientious work and definite, loyal cooperation of every student in college. To the girl that thus gives herself to the successful issue of a large and worthy cause comes the greatest blessing of all, a deeper knowledge of herself, a broader view of the world, a more sympathetic understanding of those less fortunate than her- self, and a keener insight into the needs of her friends, and a clearer vision of what her own life may and ought to mean. 109 CROCEUS - -any in gk-J a uw E9 QQ?

A CEREAL STORY 2 ulnnigiiigziniiiiuugllI R. JONATHAN HARWOOD, inventor, and Miss Christine Seward, lr I lady of leisure, were attending the Pure Food Show. Pretty Miss U ,T , X Seward, patrician, erect, charmingly dressed, led' the way through the lhlll 'I protectingly inclined, followed. They stopped at the gaily colored 1 KI It I'-fl. T X 'lo rtnjl IW x g crowd. Tall Mr. l-larwood, fair-haired, broad-shouldered, head ' IIIII if - 'ln i ,.-,,--15 W, it booths and listened to explanations of the merits of certain brands of dried beef, flour and grape juice. Their unresisting hands were filled with pamphlets. They watched the operators of a miniature model bakery with absorbed interest. Christine was for some reason in madcap spirits. She laughed' almost saucily at the demonstrators and tasted everything with impartial glee, even once holding up a dab of apple butter on a cracker to Jonathan's mouth. You may be sure that Jonathan was quite delirious with joy. l-le said absurd, boyish things which made Christine giggle and once she called him, "You funny old Jonathan." Presently they came to a booth which was decorated with bunches of wheat and bore the name of the Eat-Wheat-O Breakfast Food Company. "Oh, hereis our turn-out! Pretty neat, isn't it?" Jonathan picked up a box of Eat-Wheat-O lovingly. "Not a carton of this but goes through my handsf' he said, patting the box, "and it goes all over the world, hey, Tom?', to the young man in the booth. "It does that, Johnny," replied the youth, with a meditative stare of admiration at Miss Seward the while. Christine was frowning, "Come away from that horrid Eat-Wheat-O," she ordered. "You're dreadfully familiar with those men," she added, glancing at him. All in a twinkling Jonathan felt how worn his coat collar was in the back, how bulgy his pockets were, and, moreover that his salary was only 3516 a week. Some girls can look at one that way. l'le rallied: "Really, Christine, the company is making Eat-Wheat-O at an awful cost. The machinery is expensive and the stuff they make it of-wheat, you know-is costly too. Now, I have a theory that it can be made of rice and corn with the proper machinery. lim working on it now-an entirely new idea in the line of breakfast food machinery. It's going to be my best inventionf' Christine sighed impatiently. "Didn't you say that about the circumductory washing 135 1 3 machine and the window washer and the baby carrier that you wear on your back with bottles and playthings attached?" she queried. Jonathan half laughed. "That 'one was silly,-but still itis useful. I gave the model to Mrs. Flaherty, the janitress, and you ought to see her! She carries Pat about in it, proud' as Punch, and the little mite never peeps. Takes a pull at his bottle of water whenever he's hungry." Christine was silent, and Jonathan, not noticing, went on. "Poor little cripple Mickey! I went down to the tenement to-day and promised him some crutches. We're having a rush at the factory and llm afraid they won't be done for Easter. There's a little seat to hook up between, and an extra leg to let down on each crutch. The little fellow gets tired selling papers and there's no place to sit down. I mean to patent the crutchesf' he added. "How do you do, Christine? Awfully glad to see you! l-lello, l-larwoodf, A neat-featured young man had suddenly appeared from the crowd and stood pressing Christine,s hand longer than Jonathan thought necessary. l-le was dark-haired, clean- shaven, immaculate, and he twinkled through his nose glasses with the air of an assured man of the world. HGoing home, are you?" asked the newcomer. "Well, I'1l walk along too. You know I go your way." "lim sure we're glad to have you, Edward," answered Miss Seward, cordially. ulxleedinit speak for me,', growled Jonathan to himself. As the three sauntered along the street with its electric lights, the conversation turned almost imperceptibly to Margery Ford's acting in mlihe Road to Nowheref, the Chester's dinner party, and the respective merits of the Page-Arnold and Spafford cars. Jonathan began to feel blue and neglected. He lingered the thumb-winding tops in his pockets disconsolately. They were his latest invention, they would not go, they made his pockets bulge,-'ibut then, some little kid might like them." "Well, Harwood," presently hailed Edward, from beyond the fluffy barricade of Miss Seward's furs, "how are the inventions going?" ' Hlust about," answered Jonathan, non-committally. "Do tell us the latest,', persisted Channing's jovially patronizing voice. "How did the dog muzzler come out?" "Why, the fact is, I couldn't get it patented," replied the inventor, tersely. "Perfectly good principle," answered Channing with an especial twinkle for Chris- tine. ".You put the meat in the end of the trap, the dog rushes furiously at the meat, he pokes his nose in the muzzle, an automatic clamp puts it on-and there you are! But, really, I liked the downstairs slide better, though you said you couldn't get it patented for some reason. l-low do you like it, Christine?,' 136 CROCEUS H C 'il donit believe l've heard of it," answered Miss Seward with a laugh. 'iOf all things, what is the downstairs slide?" she appealed to the inventor. 6'Well," answered Jonathan, "the principle is simple. It is just a trough-shaped slide running parallel to a staircase. You sit down on it to come downstairsf' Christine was laughing gaily. "Just imagine sedate, elderly persons going down! Tell us another, Jonathan. I do love them so," she said with a merry glance at Channing, whereat both laughed again. Jonathan stiffened. "The breakfast food machine," he stated with pleasant dignity, "is the latest. And I really think it's corking good," he added, letting enthusiasm get the better of his mood. "That isn't funny a bit. I'm disappointed. Do tell us another, please!', They were in front of Christineis home. "I really can't stop. I have a Boy Scout meeting to-night. Good-nightf' Jona- than, lifting his hat, swung away into the night. The more he reflected, the angrier he became. "Tell us!,' Indeed! Then Christine only wished to hear his inventions to make fun of him! I-le would not trouble her with his attentions any longer. H!-low funny that Jonathan did not stay," reflected Christine that night. Hl'le surely couldn't have been provoked because I talked a little with Ned Channing. What odd beasts men are!" All that night Jonathan sat up working on his breakfast-food machine, filing and planing, and poring over the begrimed drawing. "She's going to be a peach," he told himself with the swift incalculable joy of discovery, as having turned out the wan gaslight he stood watching the dawn creep up over the cold, gray, listening house tops. Then, turning, he sandpapered' the model lovingly and locked it away in his cupboard. As he set out cheese and bread and Eat-Wheat-O for his morning meal he still turned his thoughtsto Christine. HI was mistaken," he said, "l thought maybe she loved me. But, no," he reflected, "why should she, rich and beautiful, marry a poor, worthless fellow who can invent nothing but things for her to laugh at? And yet, dear little girl-l'll Win her yet!" l-lis unfailing optimism rose to the surface. For a week Jonathan resolutely kept away from Christine. l-le busied himself at the Eat-Wheat-O factory in the daytime and spent the long evenings with his inventions. Three days later, lVlr. Edward Channing received' a bit of information which came as an inspiration. l-le was seated at his club on a comfortable divan, reading a news- paper, when a natty youth halted before him and entreated him to bowl. "Nothing doing," replied Mr. Channing. "Or, in the language of the streets, another evening with. you would permanently incapacitate my mind for its normal activity." I37 I 2 cnoci-:us g , g 53-2 'LSL U "You neednft be so stiff and proud," replied his young friend, HI know a fellow who has beaten your record, and he's promised to play with me next week at the Y.

M. and he's the real thing, all rightln "Funny chap, thoughf' commented Channing. "Inventor and all thatf, "Poor guy, yesf' answered his friend, and followed with a tale. l-larwood was be- friending an Irish family in a quiet way. The father drank, and I-larwood did everything for them, bought coal and food and found positions for the eldest children. The Flahertys had to move from their second floor tenement to another dwelling place. l-larwood had invented an elevator effect and bullied the landlord into letting him put it on the side of the house. The elevator, shaped like a shallow box open at the top, was designed to descend, freighted with goods, on to a platform cart. The pulley ropes were then sliped off, and the wagon moved the goods directly to their destination. "I guess it'll be a great sight to see them move to-morrowf, concluded the youth. HThere are about a dozen young ones, and they are going to draw the wagonf, Mr. Edward Channing loved nothing better than a joke. "What richness it will be to see the Flahertys moving and old John in the midst of themf' he chuckled. It is not difficult to see the steps which led Channing from this state of mind to a firm resolve that Christine should see his rival in just that situation to-morrow. So the next day found Christine passing through the tenement district in Mr. Channing's cabriolet, beside its very self-satisfied owner. Presently glancing out of the window, she beheld a motley crowd of shabby youngsters, be-apronecl mothers, and lounging fathers gazing upward. "What,s all this crowd, Edward?', she asked. "That?', Channing chuckled. "Oh, I brought you around to a little party of Jonathanls. His friends, the Flahertys, are moving and he has a new invention, you might guessf' Christine laughed and turned her eyes to the house. There was the rickety, box- shaped elevator, with its many ropes and pulleys, moored to the tiny balcony, and there was Mrs. Flaherty, ample of dimensions, red of apron, moving out tables and chairs upon the little platform and loudly commanding the little Flahertys to clear the track. From her lofty situation, Mrs. Flaherty shouted down loud confidences to the effect that there never were such spalpeens and they would catch it from Mr. Flaherty. Flaherty himself had chosen to appear on this festal occasion and' was to be seen at intervals modestly bearing forth a potted geranium in the wake of his wife with 138 cnocfzus the washing machine. Suddenly Jonathan appeared on the platform, anxiously fingering the ropes. There was a joyous, recognizing shout from the populace. Children waved their hands, and a little boy, sitting on a queerly shaped seat made of two crutches smiled with perfect trust. ' Presently, the elevator began to descend slowly, totteringly, but still downward, till it passed below the level of the people's heads. What a shout there was! What waving of everything seizablel Channing laughed uncontrollably. "Wasn't that the best? Old Johnny, inventor of the new style moving van, exclusively designed for Paddys and Dagoesln Christine was rather nettled. Hlt's a clever idea," she stated defensively. Chan- ning stared a moment. But now the crowd separated so that the moving van might approach the road, as it did with some odd dozen of men and children pulling. Slowly, ponderously, it wobbled on its way, the Flaherty bureau waving a weighty defiance to the world. Beside it rode Mrs. Flaherty, bowing and smiling like a stump speaker, wearing on her back the baby carrier from which Pat poked an inquiring nose. Two young Flaherrys raised ecstatic countenances over the edge of the wagon. Foremost in straining at the rope was Jonathan, flushed and eager-eyedg his shirt was opened at the throat, his muscles swelled. Suddenly he caught sight of the cabriolet and its occupants. "Hello, Edwardf' he said, dropping the rope and advancing, thus shifting the center of interest to Christine and Edward, much to that gentlemanls dis- comfiture. Then Jonathan did a noble thing. "Wouldn't you like to help us tow the furniture with your car?" he asked, thus giving his rival an opportunity to share some of his own hard-earned glory. "The Flahertys are moving to number fifty and a half Am- brose." 'l-low good, how very good and kind he was! Christine couldn't help seeing it as he stood there, Mickey beside him, other grateful admirers about. HShall I fasten the wagon to your rear axle?,' asked Jonathan. "Indeed you wonit if I know itf' growled the other, hastily. 4'Man, do you think Miss Seward and I wish to be made a laughing stock?', Jonathan's face fell. "Very well,,' he said. Then proud Christine did a strange thing. "Edward," she said, "I don't care. Do hitch on and help. It will be funln 'Tm sorry, but itls impossible," retorted Channing, his face ominous, and slamming the door, he started the machine, and they went away. About an hour later Channing was saying, "Will you be my wife, Miss Seward?" l-le was much surprised when she answered, 'Tm very sorry, but it's impossiblef, 139 CRDCEUS 'LQ' C That same evening the would-be inventor appeared at Miss Sewardls home, and maybe you think Miss Seward was not expecting him and had not put on her prettiest frock. If you do, you do not know Christine Seward, or rather Mrs. --, but wait a minute! The dress was that white one with soft lacy ruflles. There was the big red rose at her belt that was quite a fraud, as others beside Jonathan had discovered, for it was non-transferable, being sewed on. Jonathan stood in front of the grate fire with his hands behind his back, his face very thoughtful. As Christine approached he said nothing about the episode of the afternoon, but just held out a small object to her and remarked, "Allow me to present a little gift. I heard you say you wanted onef' Then he stood silent. It was an automobile clock which Jonathan had set in a small carved case to be fastened on the side of her limousine. There was a calendar and memorandum attached, ' Christineis eyes were suspiciously bright. "Why, Jonathan," she said, "how did you remember? I must have said that I wanted it about a year ago." Then she added, "You are very good, Jonathan," and looked down with a shyness utterly unusual. Jonathan noticed this and followed up his advantage with great discretion. The result was that within ten minutes the tall, fair-haired young man stood with his arm about the lovliest girl in the world, and both were gazing. into the fire in the conventional rapt manner. "Then, darling, you will be my wifef' he said, looking down with proud tendernessf, "I certainly havenit said I wouldf, responded the young lady, suddenly drawing away with the greatest independence. Jonathan sighed deeply. I-le had felt that he had passed his final examinations on the working of a woman's mind, and was, in short, receiving his diploma, but here was an unforeseen complication. He finally said in utter bewilderment, "What did you say?" "I only saidf, the roguish twinkle would come out, "I only said that I loved you." l'What do you mean?', he exclaimed. "I mean, Sillyf, replied Christine, "that I will marry you on one condition-that is, that you will stop this awful inventing and just be you own dear self. I don't want to ever hear of a breakfast-food-machine or anything. I hate to have people laughing at you.', Christine stood fortified for argument. She intended' to be quite firm. What was her surprise when Jonathan laughed outright, as if he had the better of the bargain and replied, "All right, weill do that-only say that I am not to invent without your voluntary permission-that's all.', HAgreed," cried Christine. In four months they were married. Edward Channing received an invitation to the wedding, but did not go. It was the prettiest wedding, everybody said, and right in the midst of it Christine began to wonder so that she almost forgot to say "I do." She 140 CROCEUS H C wondered how Jonathan had ever dared to propose to her and marry her. He was so poor and working for the Eat-Wheat-O Company. nl-low very, very easily I have managed him,H she reflected. "Some poor young men have such uncomfortable con- sciences about marrying rich girls." Once on the train and speeding out of the city that evening, Jonathan pointed out of the window to a cluster of stately low-lying buildings, a dull dark mass against the twilight sky. "Theres the good old Eat-Wheat-O Company, dear," said he. HThey'll miss me for a couple of weeks, won't they?" "Forever, Jonathanf' replied his wife. "I intend that you shall never go back there. I have money enough for both, and, now that I have you, you shall never work for that beastly Eat-Wheat-O Company again." "Mrs, Harwood," answered the young man, "I beg your pardon. I shall go back to the Eat-Wheat-O Company in two weeks-as one of its directors and stockholdersf, Hjonathan, what do you mean?', cried Christine. "Dearest,', wentpon Jonathan, HI blush to say it, but it's one of my inventions, the breakfast-food machine. It makes the product quicker and cheaper and in addition uses corn and rice which are less expensive materials. lt's made my fortune-yours and mine, Christine. Did you think for a minute that I'd have married you if I'd been the worthless chap you thought you were getting?" As Mrs. Harwood was giving the most gratifying of replies the conductor stopped before their seat. HMr. and Mrs. Harwood?" he grinned. 'SThis was left for you,', and he thrust forth a mammoth shower boquet of red roses and gaily colored flowers. HBest wishes to our great inventor from Flahertyis and Neighbors," said the card. "Bless the Flahertyslw exclaimed the groom, "I believe they did a great deal to help their inventor win his wifef, HMy.inventor,', corrected the bride, proudly. J. A. R.

M.-Presidentf' The bulletin board was crowded as usual. There were official notices, friendly notes, announcements of meetings on the board, but this one small square of paper alone engaged the attention of the freshman. She read it again to assure herself that her eyes were not deceiving her.. There were so many perplexing things in this huge college and the small freshman was attempting to understand them one by one. But here was a notice, for her alone, posted on the college bulletin board! Oh, but was it not a joyous moment when she realized that it was signed "President!" What had she done? Not a class had she cut, not a lesson left unstudied, and the president was such a great personage! She must have made a serious mistake about some- thing. Would she-? But here the small freshman's reverie was interrupted by the five- thirty bell. A crowd of sophomores rushed out of the study room, another crowd flew in from a cross-country tramp: every girl was hurrying to her room. ulVlarion," called one girl who was running up the stairs after the sophomores, "I simply must see you before dinner. Come into my room to dress." "All right, Kitty," called a sweet voice from above. Other girls were calling, hurrying, laughing, chattering, then bang, bang, went the doors, one by one, and-silence. The freshman felt lonely. Every one knew every one else, but sheg she was alone. Why had they put a new little freshman in the older girls' do-rm? Slowly she climbed the stairs up to her little tower room. There in the quiet twilight the little freshman dropped on the window seat and looked' across the campus to the freshman dormitory. What wonderful times the girls had there. Then she remembered the notice and the president whom she must meet. At any rate, those other freshmen did not have an appointment with the president, This thought made her feel quite dignified and she went down to dinner with the air of a sophomore. "Hello, Kitty, what's the eXcitement?', Marion opened the door to see Kitty on her knees beside the bed, her fluffy black hair tumbling down as she vainly searched for something. "Oh, Marion, I am having the worst time! l just have to darn that stocking and that old darning egg has rolled under this cot. Oh, here I have it at last. Yes, l know I'l1 be late for dinner-unless-. Well, you're all dressed, dearie. Don't you want to arrange my hair while I finish these holes? Oh, thank you!" "But Kittyf' inquired her friend, as she deftly tucked the curls out of sight, "why did you want to see me?', - 147 CRDCEUS "Oh, I remembered what a help you always are when a person is in a hurry. Don't go, Marion, l like to talk to you. There are five minutes yet." As the two girls ran down to the dining room together, Kitty whisperedf, There is something else. U. A. I-I. at 7:30." Seven-thirty.-The grandfather clock was striking. She must be there on time. The little freshman peeked into room 6. It was clark and black in there. Not a light in that large, empty room. What a queer place to meet the president of the college! One would think she would receive callers in her office or parlor. Just as the little freshman was feeling along the wall for the electric button she heard steps outside the door and she shrank back in the corner. 6'What a place to meet," whispered a voice which was not the presidents "Why, it's unexpected, of course. lsnlt that what you want, Hattie?" The owners of the voices stopped just inside the door and one said, Ml don't intend to go in there until some one else comes. lt's dark as midnight and cold' as Iceland in that room.', "Yes, indeedf' thought the small freshman, "you are right, but where can the presi- dent be? There must be a mistake. 1,11 look at the number againf, But just then the door openedwicle and a stream of light poured in. Eight girls slipped in and one of them closed the door before the freshman could see their faces. "Indeed, Kittyf' some one petulantly exclaimed, 'gif this is what you call unexpected, I wonlt be with you long. Itls positively spooky here." HThat's right, l-lattief, chimed in another voice, ul like last yearls meeting places better than this." "Oh, you cowardsf' whispered Marion, "this is exciting. Suppose some one were hiding here, a burglar maybe. Oh, wouldn't it be unexpected and exciting?,' Just then the freshmanls big signet ring dropped. "Cirls,,, cried Marion, "there is some one in this room. Oh, Kitty, letas go some where else. l-lear that shuffling in the corner?" fplghe freshman was hunting for her lost treasure? "OOO-oo it's a burglar, I know!" Hlrollow me, girls, up to my room. Weill have to put this in our secretary's bookf, Kitty was leading the way to safety. The door slammed behind the frightened girls. The freshman trembled in her corner. She heard' noises now, also, perhaps the burglar would find her ring and then he would hunt for her. Oh, she must open that door and reach the lights.-The little freshman did not meet the president that night. Up in Kitty's room the girls were laughing over their adventure and discussing the burglars in general. 148 CROCEUS 3 "Girls, the meeting will please come to orderf' But they were too much interested to hear that for Esther was telling a real burglar story. "Girls, we only have twenty minutes before the study bell. Marion, tell them I have some candyf, Poor Kitty was not enjoying her official position. ,ucandyln they all cried. "All rightf' "Is it sea foam?', "Please give me chocolate fudgef, Each girl had her choice and at last order and candy took possession. "We will hear the minutes of the last meeting." l-larriet pulled out a tiny red note-book and began to read: "Meeting called to order on June 4th. Times were too exciting for us to seek anything new. Jane thought she was surprising us as she told of her happy summer but we wanted to see her blush as she caught the new diamond's sparkle. Ruth reported a new convert to our faith. Resolution adopted as follows: LWe do hereby confirm our faith in our motto and expect to stand by it next year., Study bell rang and we all sang lGoodnight, Ladies,' and adjourned to pack our trunks for homell' The reading of these minutes seemed to create the old time spirit of interest among the girls and they all paid strict attention to the proceedings of the meeting. "Girls,H the president began, "the purpose of this meeting of the U. A. l-l. is to make something happen, unexpectedly, of course. We have been here for two whole weeks and nothing but lessons and obedience has been on our program.

They could post notices on the bulletin board, you knowf, HThat's fine. Kitty always knows something new," cried Pauline. "For that sweet little speech I shall put you on the committee, Pauline, and whom else," as she looked around the room,-"and Hattie. Don't be too rash, girls." mlwhey will keep us at a good pace, all rightyf' Ruth warned.

A. l-l. bring one bottle of catsup when we meet at I2 130 this noon. Presf' "Oh, thatis all right, said the freshman. "I guess she just wanted the catsup, not me,,' idea! Catsup to the president! I won't take it. But they do say people are tested for obedience. Could it be that?" . At twelve-thirty the little freshman presented herself hesitatingly before the office door to meet the president. She was admitted but evidently not expected, for she was told the president was dining in her inner office. "Oh, thatis all rightf, said the freshman. 'I guess she just wanted the catsup, not me," and she sent the bottle into the inner office. "Well, I didnit have to meet her anyway," she sighed to a waiting classmate. HBut she must be a queer person to demand catsup of freshmen." The little freshman did not intend to bother with that board any more for she thought her duties of obedience were over. But the next day as she glanced at it in passing she saw another notice for U. A. H., requesting her to take a broom to the president's home that evening. If this little freshman had not been made with three-quarters heart and conscience, and one-quarter of innocence, she would not have obeyed this order. But she had heard of the horrors of hazing and she foolishly thought the president was a partaker in most college activities. Therefore the president was presented with a broom in the midst of a company of friends. Of course she was perplexed but when the friends were gone her inquiry as to who had done such a thing could not be answered. The freshman told her classmate 'the next morning that the bulletin board was still exacting her services. That evening she waited at the president's home with a book under her arm, "Baedeker's Guide-Book of Germanyf, She handed this to the maid, who in turn, presented it to the president as she sat at dinner entertaining some distinguished educators from Berlin. When she saw the title of the book it seemed to be a foolish prank which had been played upon her. To be handed a guide book to Germany when in the midst of Germans! It was an insult! On the fly leaf was found, Ufrom U. A. I-I." By the next morning the president's wrath had not subsided. She was no person with whom to trifle. '!Some girl in this college," she declared "has gone a little too far. She must learn of the dignity of which I am possessed and her own as well." Consequently the bulletin boards in the dormitories bore this notice at which all the girls looked in awe, for the official stamp was on it. UU. A. l-l. is summoned to the office of the President at 7:30, Wednesday evening. Signed, M. FERRIS, Secretaryf' I50 , QCROCEUS t , g viii 'iWho can be the unhappy girl?,' inquired everyone. But in the sophomores' dormitory the girls were in a high state of excitement. All knew what U. A. l-l. meant and many sympathized with the poor girls who evidently had fallen into a great amount of trouble. Some there were who taunted Kitty and Marion who were the originators of the club. uYour motto has come true at last, girls. Indeed, lim glad I never believed in it,', called one classmate as the U. A. l-l. girls filed down the dormitory steps. "Just wait until we come back and you'll wish you belonged. I think the president wants to be a member," Kitty called back, as she laughingly tried to hide her true feelings. For she was thinking of some of their thoughtless pranks which seemed harm- less enough. No one had ever objected to them, but Lady Matron, and she had never considered them worthy of reporting to the president. - The sky grew dark as the eight slowly walked toward the president's home, for a later notice had directed them there. But no one was alone in her misery, for this was a crowd. But the little freshman did not have company and she was miserable as she hurried through the darkness, all alone, to the presic!ent's home. The black trees took the forms of pursuing brooms bearing black witches with presidential faces. She hurried on faster in the coo! night and her cheeks burned as she thought of the catsup gift. How foolish she had been! Those must have been fraudulent notices, designed for little new freshmen. Why had she been so foolish as to believe in them? If only she had asked some other girl! Why had she not? The little freshman ran up the steps of the presidentls home and hastily dropped the knocker. She must get the ordeal over! Oh, where were her cherished cards? For this fateful occasion she must have her cards, her classmates had advised. The door opened, the maid recognized' Ursula. "I-I-Fm sorry to disturb you a-again,, but will you please give my card to the president this time?', faltered the poor child. Ursula waited in the large, dimly lighted reception hall a long time-hours it seemed. She was afraid' to move, expecting to see a wrathful, dignified figure appear at any moment. Upstairs the U. A. H. girls were being led into the cosey councilroom. The president sat there with a cold stare in her eyes. She did not have the gracious manner which the girls had come to admire in their social contact with her. "Is this U. A. l-l. ?" she demanded of Kritty, who stood in the foreground. "Yes, Mrs. Johns, this is our club, "replied Kitty respectfully. "Young ladiesf' the president gravely began, "be seated and proceed to explain your unseemingly conduct toward your eldersf, Silence followed. "Young ladies, have you nothing to say for yourselves?" questioned the dignified lady again. Then she told' her reasons for the summons and the girls tried to clear themselves. Just when the excite- !5I cnoceus C ment was greatest, when it seemed impossible to convince the president of their true in- nocence, a card was handed to her. "Ursula Adams l-linmanf' she readg then, "Girls, the culprit is found! Sarah, bring her inf' There followed a breathless mo- ment until the little freshman came. "Your initials are U. A. l-l. Explain yourself!" commanded the president. With her hands clenched tightly behind her back little Ursula attempted to explain. 'SOh, lVlrs. Johns, one day I saw a notice on the bulletin board for me, and again- Oh, I thought I ought to obey, but-H Poor freshman, she was trembling from head to foot. Pauline came to her rescue. "lVlrs. Johns, donlt you see? She followed our silly little commands and-oh, isnlt it funnyln She laughed. The president laughed and all the girls joined ing even Ursula dared to smile and breath freely once more. "Of all the unexpected happeningsf, laughed Kitty. "Who would have thought our notices were being interpreted in that funny way!', The serious interview became a jolly party and the president was a girl with her girls. HBut we want to know your motto," begged the president who was sitting with her arm about the little freshman. HYou certainly shall know it, Mrs. Johns. You may be an honorary member and Ursula would make a perfect mascot," joyfully answered Kitty, the charter member. "One-two-three-girls. Give our club motto-one-two-threef, This was what the president and the little freshman heard-HU. A. l-l.-U. A. H.- U. A. l-l.-Unexpected Always Happens!" The little freshman believed it with all her happy heart. l. K. W. I52 cnocl-:us ev HQ -are INTERCLASS TENNIS One wintry afternoon the girls pretended it was summer and played tennis with vim.

O Seventh Hour, Why wilt thou come so soon? Thy whistles of familiar tune Turn sweet to sour. O, how I hate my class at eight, 5 l'm always late. Beastly skirt braid, Divorced from lower edge! Thou art a binding pledge To trip this rnaidg IO Now I must sew before I go, I am so slow. XXV. This ode was probably written in honor of some friend who impressed the poetess favorably by her promptness, and is addressed to a torn skirt braid which had to be attached to the poetess' surroundings before a lecture at eight o'clock.-C. Hating. 3. Evidently the poetess lived in a city where whistles were blovm at the seventh hour and she so 'closely associated whistles with her rising hour that they became hateful to her. It also shows that this period of her life was spent in the factory city, Rochester, rather than the residential one, Charlotte, which was near.-H. F. Burton. 8. The simile of the divorce here applied to the skirt braid shows that divorce and second marriage fcf., "unite this band" in line l5j were commonly practised at that time. It also gives us light on the question of the divorce proceed- ings brought against I-I. A. Wesley during that year, by "a lady with poetic inclinations," whose identity was never ascertained.-C. Hoeing. The short, broken, and well rhymed lines at the end of each verse show the rising of the poetess' emotions. I3. Tho' the needle seemed to have no eye, the reference to the trouble of the poetess in keeping her hold on the needle shows her to have had very large hands and a clumsy manner. This is further and more conclusively shown by the quarter of the room where the thread seems to have been fline ISD. Surely she was not a model of neatness. This reference to the red thread undisputedly shows that the poetess was accustomed to wear a gown of that color, and is probably "the red-clad loitereru referred to by the psychologist, Dr. G. M. Forbes, in his treatise on "The superiority of Womanls Mind."-H. F. Burton. In line I9 we find one of the most beautiful lines in chirorhymastic poetry and the content also reveals many important facts. It is a master- piece of poetry expressing the delight and joy of sleeping and dreaming. The line has a sooth- ing effect which is in contrast to the harsh line which follows. Firstly it shows the working of the poetess' mind, for in the last line of verse two, her attentions were drawn by a thread to her couch of repose. This sight made her soul possess a longing to return to its warmth-giving CRDCEUS 5 JOHN LUTHER, P cl t dT CHARLES W. LUTHER, 1 t V P cl t JOHN W. LUTHER 2d V P cl CHARLES M.

The gong has rungg my song is sung, Tho, I am young. 30 Lines 25-26 are undoubtedly copied after the ing line, lest her "weakening will"-a beautiful expression-give way. This also shows that the poetess was a romantic, sentimental dreamer. -C. Hoeing. The lines Zl-22 throw much light on a much disputed fact. Probably the poetess was a victim of headaches and a patron of headache pills, and here is a Hne example of confusion and the poetess has given to the pill the power of mending as well as healing. This attribute of the pill shows that the poetess belonged to the school of Homeopaihisis which was. dominant at that period, and with which pills were often identified, and did not, as some have supposed, belong to the school of Osieopalhisls which clamored for first place at the same period. 23. It is pitiful to think that after the skirt- braid episode, she should discover another break in her surroundings, when the hour of departure had come.-H. F. Burion. famous song of Jack Judge, ultis a long way to Tipperary, a long way to gog Farewell, Leicester Square,"-and this ode was likely written during the seventh month of the European conflict be- tween the allied forces, and the Teutons and Turks. As this song was the English marching song, undoubtedly the poetess favored the Allied Septemvirate. It is superfluous to mention that the poetess left home without food on the day to which this ode refers. It fills one with sorrow to note the pathos in the closing lines, that after so many inconveniences and so much trouble the poetess should be late for her lecture and feel that her song was sung, and the world cared for her no m,ore. Little did she realize her abili- ties or the possibility that later her works would become so famous as to be subjects for literary pursuits and study in America and Germanica. -M. D. Cray.

Y. 38Q CROCEUS EK C WHEN OUR CLASS WAS SHIPWRECKED One sunny morning a forlorn group of maidens stood on the coast of a beautiful, tropical island in a strange, southern ocean, looking out to sea. There lay the good ship Solomon Socrates fast sinking in the blue water. The maidens, who were none other than the shipwrecked class of l9l6, remained as if fascinated, each clutching some article which she had saved from the wreckage. Valma Clark embraced her Ouija board, Elsie Neun, her violin, and Linda Schneider, a small looking glass. The twins, who had been separated during the flurry of the shipwreck, stood with arms rapturously entwined. Alas! What sorrow was in store for them! With characteristic unity of thought each had saved an extra dress. But, unthinkable misfortune! The twins could no longer be clad alike. Florence had saved a dark red dress and Mildred, a blue "Peter Thompson!" Suddenly an agonized shriek rent the air. HGirls, l've left my pocketbook on the ship! What'll I ever do?H Needless to say, it was Clara Kaiser. Allie Williams roused herself. '!We must build a fire and have something to eat," she declared sensibly. "Did any of you girls save some food?,' Adele Smith staggered forward, bearing a moist but bulky parcel. A shout of joy from the marinettes became a universal groan when the contents proved to be pickles, and pickles, and more pickles. Elizabeth Garbutt was heard to remark that a briny death seemed inevitable. But then the class was in action. Catherine Combs, leaving on a rock her carefully rescued pile of textbooks, was quietly building a fire, and Clarice Lambright was daintily spreading a tablecloth on a rock. Gladys White climbed to a high point where she could sketch the waterscape, and Julia Rogers sat down near by to Hreportu the ship- wreck. Miriam and Mabel were seen vanishing down an avenue of stately trees, arm in arm, whispering delightful secrets. Other exploring and foraging parties followed. The island proved to be the most desirable thing in desert islands. Charlotte, indeed, confessed that it was the most wonderful place she had even seen-except Canada. There were brilliant flowers, graceful vines, and not an animal in sight except a monkey, which Elinor, convinced of the theory of evolution, feared might in time evolve into a man. Enid Morris, far from being her usual happy self, was weeping beneath a cocoanut tree and little Katie Smith strove valiantly to comfort her. UI shan't get any more letters, or go to any more dancesf' sobbed Enid. 'iNever mind, honeyf' consoled Katie. "The climate's awfully good here, anywayf, "Bother the climatef, replied Enid. "You're too ch-cheerful, Katie." In about half an hour the parties returned to the rock-table, and heaping up their 39 1 CROCEUS T S F gl., I IQ' th U J' 5 C C. W.

"A regular class spread," approved Amy as she poked the fireover which the coffee was boiling.

Ch, deahlu replied Susie, pensively. Cecil giggled. i'Well," remarked Gertrude Hough, as the girls reclined on the rocks after dinner, 'Tm glad' weire not at college. There isnit a meeting of any description to attend. What unalloyed blissls' Cecil giggled. "Girls, what shall we do with our time?U cried Edna Kuhnert in alarm. Cecil giggled. "Don't you think perhaps, girls," gently suggested Catherine, uthat the professors and Miss Munro would like it if we were to keep up our studies-just a little,-so we wonit became savages?,' S'l:orget it," remarked Nevada, and Emily Cutler hastily said to Clara Hoffman, 'iWe want to dance. Wonlt you play your mouth organ for us?" They slipped' away. "I thinkf, decided Clara Kaiser very gravely, "that a Y. W. C. A. or a D. I. C. A. will be exactly as good a civilizing influence as study and much more pleasant and profitable. So all those who would like a Desert Island Christian Association, please raise your handsf' The vote was unanimously affirmative. Suddenly an awful sight was seen. Alma Rouch jumped up, seized' Allie by the hand and spun round and round, shouting, laughing, and talking! The hairs of the spectators arose as one man. CEd.' note: Who was he?J What in the world could ail Alma, the most steady, silent member of the class? Emma Collyer, who has been dreamily reclining under a palm tree, sat up and rubbed her eyes. Great was the general relief when Alma, sinking down, remarked in her usual low tones, HYou might as well know what I'm really like, as long as I'll be with you the rest of my lifeln "Well, as long as it',s not Wednesday," suggested Isabel, nl move we give a little play this afternoonf, So, accordingly, a very effective farce was produced. Myrtle proved a charming heroine, in spite of her protests that she was too fat, while Elizabeth Marsh and Mary Edwards appeared as dashing young men. "Stunts" of all kinds fol- lowed. Thus the afternoon was spent in jollity of the rare 1916 variety. Another long ramble in the woods was followed by a campfire built where a delight- ful little stream met the ocean's dark blue waters. The sun was setting all golden in the 41 CROCEUS H 3 BOTH PHONES Home Phone 342 Bell Phone 342 Main 31.
