Your Ariel sends, Prince Ferdinand,
This tohen, from the desert sand
FVhere he, for some misdeed, was sent
lVithin a mortal body pent.
If you accept his simple song,
He cares not for the restless throng.
If he could fly-as once he could,
Ulhen Prospero ,freed him from the wood
He 'd swiftly mount beyond the moon
To fetch you star-dust for a boon.
But ah! He has nor wings to mount
Nor charms to reach the magic fount,
S o this imperfect song of words
I s all he has. The very birds
May moclc at him, once free as they,
As uncontrolled, as light, as gay.
Yet, Ferdinand , what Ariel owns
I s yours, and no fairy stones
Through which the iridescent light
Of translunary regions bright
Forever plays, all air and fire,
And drossless as an angel's lyre,
Be his, accept this dusty shell
In which, long since, was wont to dwell
Some citizen of 0cean's caves,
E 'er mountains stepped above theywabes,
Wlien all this mighty Western world,
Unknown to men, through space was hurled
Unnumbered ages. Guard it well,
For in its stony midst doth dwell
The heart of Ariel, which to you
He gives, as tribute justly due.

The College was chartered in 1791, but actual instruction was
started only after ten years of toil and anxiety. In 1800 the Rev.
Daniel Sanders was appointed President, and the next year a class of
four was accepted and instruction began in the University of Vermont.
President Sanders carried on the entire instruction of the first three
classes, until 1807, when a Tutor was appointed to assist him. The
first Professor appointed was James Dean, Prof. of Mathematics and
Natural Philosophy, in 1809. Two more professors were added to the
faculty in 1811, another in 1813, and two more in 1821.
Then came a period of hardship and calamity . Much opposition
Was met and to top it all, in 1825, the one college edifice was con-
sumed by fire. But in 1826 things turned for the better. James
Marsh became President, subscriptions were raised, and the future
of the University was assured. President Marsh was a true scholar
and brought the course of study and habits of discipline of the Uni-
versity to a near degree of perfection that, for that day, was recognized
as such by the ripest scholars of the country. The system of instruc-
tion organized by him was "more perfect in fundamental views, more
thorough in its practical studies, and more comprehensive in its pur-
pose than thenexisted in the U. S." He comprised all the courses
that Were then offered, into four departments: Department of English
Literature, Department of Languages, Department of Mathematics and
Natural Science, and Department of Political, Moral and Intellectual
Until 1866, the instruction given in these departments composed
the single course of study offered by the University to its students,
with the exception of that of Medicine, which Was, during this "an-
cient and mediaeval period," and for many years later, for the most
part only nominally connected with the University.
- In the year of 1865, the most important change and the first step
toward the greatest development in the history of the University tool:
place. In 1862, Congress, largely through the efforts of the Hon. Jus-
tin S. Morrill, then.Representative and later Senator from Vermont,
passed the law known as the "Morrill Actt' which provided for the
appropriation of public lands to every state that should encourage
instruction in "branches relating to Agriculture, the Mechanic Arts,
and in Military Tactics." Vermont was one of the lirst states to take
advantage of this act. In 1863 the State Agricultural College was
chartered, but failing to receive the interest necessary to support it,
was by an act of the state legislature of 18-65 incorporated with the
State University under the name of "The University of Vermont and
State Agricultural College. H
Action on the part of the University in accordance with this act
was the establishment in 1866 of the Department of Applied Science,
a separate course from the old Department of Arts, and which afforded
for the first time a choice in courses to the student. Even though the
material composition of the Uni-
versity was not changed during this
time, this action meant the oppor-
tunity to develop into a much
greater institution for the accom-
plislnnent of the ideals established
by its founders, and later its sup-
porters, than would otherwise have
been possible. C
This new Department consisted
of a single three-yea.r course giving
courses of instruction in Agricultu-
ral and Analytical Chemistry, Civil
Engineering, Metallurgy a.ndxMign-
ing Engineering, which led to the
degree of Bachelor of Science. If
a fourth year were spent in this
course, the degree Bachelor of Phil-
'osophy was given.
As time went on, the resources
and facilities of this department
President James Marsh
were greatly increased to keep pace with its constant growth along
other lines. It Was this Department that reaped the greater part of
the benefits of that "period of developmenti' in the decade or so fol-
lowing the year 1892. In this year, the Engineering buildings were
erected, and four years later, the VVillia1ns Science Hall was built
and equipped, "one of the most elaborate science buildings in the
country." In 1906 Morrill Hall was completed for the accommoda-
tion of the Agricultural section.
From the year 1871 to the year 1891 a fixed course of four years
was required in each of the curricula of the Scientific Department
giving the degree Bachelor of Philosophy. In the year 1891, the degree
conferred upon the graduate of this Department was changed again
to that of Bachelor of Science, and the courses of Mechanical and
Electrical Engineering were added to those of Civil Engineering,
Agriculture, and Chemistry.
During, and after this period of 1865, the Academical Department
remained unchanged in any radical Way. The courses offered were
still classified according to the general outline established by President
Marsh. The four sub-divisions formulated by him Were expanded, as
time Went on, to accommodate the increases in the curriculum, into
six:-those of English Literature, Languages, Mathematics, Natural
Science, History and Political Science, and Moral and Intellectual
Philosophy, all of which are now found in the Classical Course.
In 187 5 was established the Iiiterary Scientific Course, the differ-
ence between that and the Classical course being "that Greek is omitted
and its place supplied by substitutions from the Department of
In 1902 the department of Commerce and Economics was estab-
lished, a course under the Department of Arts, leading to the degree
0 B.S. This course was introduced through the initiation and gener-
osity of John H. Converse of Philadelphia, and was designed to give
Hinstructi on preparatory to a business career."
The Medical Department of the University of Vermont is one of
the oldest institutions -of its kind in the United States. Anatomy and
Surgery Were taught as early as 1809. The first full and regular course
of lectures Was not given until in the fall of 1822. In 1836, the enter-
prise Was abandoned because of the death of some of its leading spirits
and for- the lack of students.
The re-organization and successful re-establishment of the school
was chiefly due to the efforts of Dr. S. VV. Thayer. His efforts date
back to 1840 and were finally successful in 1853. The prosperity of
I-ION. 'JUSTIN S. MORRLLL
the newly organized Department soon became manifest, and a material
enlargement of the old medical college at the head of Main Street was
accomplished in 1854, and again in
1-870, through the generosity of the
citizens of Burlington. In 1884,
John P. Howard gave a commod-
ious building at the head of Pearl ,
Street which was iirst occupied in f
In 1895, the course of lectures
was increased from twenty weeks
to six months. Two years later, a
four-year course of study under a
graded system was ma.de a requis-
ite for graduation. Until 1889 the
relation of the college to the Uni-
versity was chiefly nominal. It was
then re-organized and made a co-
ordinate Department of the Univer-
sity, under the control of the Board
of Trustees, and its facilities both
for teaching and study were mater- Dr- Samuel W- Thayer
ially increased. In 1903 the course was lengthened to seven months
and in 1907 to seven and one-half months, giving thirty weeks of actual
instruction. In December, 1903, the building which had been occupied
by the Department for twenty years was destroyed by fire. A new
building was begun in 1904 and completed in January, 1906. Each
year has witnessed large accessories to the equipment and teaching
facilities of this Department. ,
In 1909, the University established the Department of Education,
Hin continuance of measures taken in several. past years and in the
line of its policy to maintain its position the head of the educational
system of the state." ' '
In 1910 was formulated the Department of Home Economics, in
recognition of the increasing importance of a policy of co-education.
Military Tactics was one -of the subjects that were included in the
Morrill Act of 1862 regarding the appropriation of public lands to
the various states encouraging instruction in the subjects specified.
Military Science has, therefore, been one of the requirements imposed
upon every male student of the University since 1866. The first in-
a! 4 I
structor in Military Science was secured in 1867. This Department
has grown with the University, and in 1915, largely as a result of the
interest and ability of Captain Ira L. Reeves, the University of Vermont
was listed among the ten colleges of the United States in the Dis-
tinguished Class. This Distinguished Class is compiledfrom the re-
ports of General Inspecting Officers sent over the country by the XVar
College at Wlashington. The University of Vermont was again listed
in the Distinguished Class in 1916, Captain S. A. Howard being Cap-
tain Reeves' successor, and the prospects are bright for the same dis-
tinction in 1917.
This, then, was the situation in 1910: there existed in the University,
five distinct Departments, with one or more courses or sub-departments
contained in each. These were: The Arts Department, with Classical,
Literary-Scientific, and Commerce and Economics courses, The Depart-
ment of Science, with Agriculture, Chemistry and the Engineering
courses, The Department of Medicine, The Department of Education,
and the Department of Home Economics.
It was in this year that occurred the death of Matthew Henry
Buckham, who had been connected with the University for more than
half a century and its President for forty years. In those four decades
under the hand of President Buclzham, the University achieved marked
development and growth, not only as to its
sphere of influence and educational worth, but
more noticeably in its material resources. Over
eight hundred thousand dollars were expended
during this time for buildings and equipment.
For this progress no little credit is due Doc-
tor Buckham, who, "by his unassuming, per-
sistent mastering of the situation and winning
ot' his men, marked himself an administrator
as well as a scholar."
The man selectedlto fill the place so long oc-
cupied by President Buckliam was Doctor Guy
Potter Benton of Miami University, Oxford,
President Mauhew H. Buckham Ohio, a man of great dynamic power and far
' reaching influence.
One prominent weakness in the existing system of organization
especially was perceived by President Benton. The office of Dean was
attached to each of the Departments, but the men filling the -office had
no real purpose or power. Doctor Benton put into effect a compre-
hensive and effectual change that removedthis short-coming. This new
system also classified the courses in the University according to a more
natural, understandable and satisfying scheme. This new arrangement
provided for four Colleges, each distinctive in its nature, and, together,
providing for all instruction given in a State University.
These four Colleges are:---The College of Arts and Science, the
College of Agriculture, the College of Engineering, and the College
of Medicine. The College of Arts and Science contains essentially the
original and typical "college" course. The curricula contained in it
are seven, viz: Classical, Literary-Scientific, General Science, Chem-
istry, Commerce and Economics, Education, and Home Economics.
The first two lead to the degrees A..l3. and Ph.B. respectively, the others
to the degree of BS. The General Science Course is the only new one
established by Doctor Benton, the others formerly comprising the Arts
Department, Department of Education, Department of Home Econ-
omics, and one from the Science Department. The Science Department,
established in 1865, was disintegrated, and the two different lines of
study now form the two Colleges of Agriculture and Engineering.
The College of Medicine has developed into one of distinction and
note. Vfith the opening of the year 1912-13, the entrance requirements
were raised to one year -of collegiate work and the college year was
made equal in length to that of the Academic colleges. The Medical
College of the University of Vermont is now rated as a Class "A"
institution by the American Medical Association.
A perusal of the original memoir of Gen. Ira Allen will show that
the University of Vermont was founded in answer to a real and
tangible need of the State of Vermont, and from the facts given above
it is seen that the University has enjoyed a constant growth and de-
velopment to keep pace with this same need, growing with the enlarge-
ment and development of the State.

Q ln accordance with the National Defense Act of June 3, l9l6, and upon the
application of the authorities of the University of Vermont, there has been established
at the University a unit of the Senior Division of the Reserve Officers, Training Corps.
The primary object of establishing units of the Reserve Officers' Training Corps
is to qualify, by systematic and standard methods of training, students at civil educa-
tional institutions as reserve ofhcers. The system of instruction prescribed presents to
these students a standardized measure of that military training which is necessary in
order to prepare them to perform intelligently the duties of commissioned officers in the
military forces of the United States.
The units of the Reserve Officers' Training Corps at this University consist of an
Infantry Unit, Senior Division, and a unit of the Medical Corps.
The Infantry Unit is organized into the battalion of four companies, conforming
to the organization of infantry troops in the Regular Army. In addition to the bat-
talion of four companies, there is organized a battalion headquarters and a band.
The Medical Unit is organized into an Ambulance Company, similar to those of
the regular army and is a distinct innovation, inasmuch as the University of Vermont is
the first university in the United States to establish a Medical Unit of the Reserve
Officers' Training Corps in connection with its college of Medicine.
The first two years of Military training are compulsory to Freshmen and Sopho-
mores. The United States Government furnishes the uniforms and equipment. The
third and fourth years are elective for Juniors and Seniors, provided that they are
selected for further training by the Professor of Military Science and the President of
the University. In this case, they must agree, in Writing, to continue in the Reserve
Officers' Training Corps during the remainder of their course in the University, and to
devote five hours per week to the military training prescribed and to pursue the courses
in camp during such period, prescribed by the Secretary of War. At the present time
this means four weeks in the military camp for two summers. The Government furnishes
the necessary uniform and equipment and also a small amount of pay.
The appointment of cadet officers and non-commissioned officers to the Reserve
Officers' Training 'Corps is made from the members of the Junior and Senior Classes.
Xvhen the student, upon graduation, completes satisfactorily his course of training, he is
eligible for appointment, by the President of the United States, as an officer in the
Officers' Reserve Corps. As such officer, he is eligible for appointment by the President
as a temporary second lieutenant in the Regular Army in time of peace for purposes of
instruction, for a period not exceeding six months. Upon expiration of such service
with the Regular Army, he shall revert to his status as a reserve officer.

'Tis reported that this missing link in the Brattleboro Retreat
Investigation will pass Chem. l the same year that its professor'
commits matrimony. Should the casual observer happen upon this
personifrcation of the allegorical tortoise perambulating with his
glacier-like movement across the campus, he would see a veritable
demonstration of microscopic and infinitely inconsiclerable accelera-
tion, which appears over the horizon in the same manner as a
stationary conveyance looms up through a London fogg all of which
goes to say that he is a darned slow man.

hope not. I-le also won thunderous applause in the College play

Almost any morning when you see a pair ofilong legs and a
cloud of smoke mounting the' steps of the Engineering building,
three at a time, you can make a safe bet that it is "Big," and you
can make another one that the time is a trilie after 8:10. Although
living in that famed and distant town, Wiliooski, 'iBig" never
starts for the first hour class until 7:55. He thus proves the value
of the above mentioned pair of legs. As a matter of political in-
terest-like all true and loyal sons of.Winooski fwet town one mile
from U. V. MQ, he felt his conscientious labors rewarded by the
demise of the late Hunt Bill.

When the valiant sons of old Vermont were called out on
June l9, l9l6, "Josh" sprang to the front with his utmost vehe-
mence? and on the twenty-sixth day of June in the year of our Lord,
1916, "Josh," with his musket on one shoulder and the tears of his
beloved on the other, departed for the Mexican border. His honor
lists of valor and bravery are too long to mention. During the
clay his duties consisted of "bunk fatigue" and burdening our Mail
department, during the night, of Uguardingu his sleeping comrades
and dreaming of the girl he "left behind him," who in turn was
"Many a flower is born to blush unseen,
And Waste its fragrance on the desert air."

Here we have the finished product from the forests primeval
of Eden and Dean Academy. It is surely an unique Visage that
this square-faced descendant of Adam possesses. Said visage
always resembles a question mark when interrogated in class and
often does at other times. He has few accomplishments, preaching,
fussing and motoring occupying most of his time. He probably
had the most filling office of any Company C member this past
summer. Lay aside the fact that Roger comes from Eden and he
might get by in a large crowd. "Fine, how's yours?,'

wiser man. Norm likes the girls and, for some unknown reason,
the girls like Norm. His old favorite hobby reasserts itself and he
is again listening to the standard jokes which the Professor of that
attractive and adhesive course mercilessly hurls at the defenceless
co-eds and Freshmen. Let us hope that his success be better than
many to whom these annals relate.

Anyone who has once seen "Arcy's" angelic smile will realize
immediately that he has at last gazed upon one destined for better
things than this poor world of ours has to offer. Since entering
college, studying has been his chief delight, but there are rumors
about that he is one of those lads that gets away with a bit of that
side activity called socializing. However, don't breathe a word of
this to a soul, because he is striving desperately to keep it dark.

The original applyee of the phrase "Aggie by course and ag-
gie by nature." "Phunk" Was also the primary member of Kelley's
famous Trio. This good-natured expectorator always has a ready
source for his famous wet ball. l-le will probably make good as
a pitcher, but Whether by sheer ability or by disconcerting the op-
posing batters with his grotesque delivery, is an open question.
"Tunk" is a man of unique vocabulary, and the favorite, original

At first the ARIEL Board planned to print a "good live" snap-
shot of everyone in the class but-we found this utterly impossible in
"But's" case so gave up the idea. Of his talents little can be said
by us. Professor Bassett's Greek disciples, who are so frequently
edified by his musical efforts, say they ought to be buried. It is not
for us to disparage, however. To his credit, he hailed from East
Jamaica and perhaps that is Why he is so full of ginger. Vvhatever
the cause, the University cannot boast "But's" equal except in the
hair-raising career of the late Joe Levy.

Here we have unquestionably the most unassuming member of
that Mysterious Exclusive Klan of Dorm Dwellers. On occasions,
however, he can 'be extremely assertive and will voice unassailable
arguments and unimpeachable principles. The most striking char-
acteristic about him is his inane aptitude for hunting.. Everything,
from foxes in the wilds of East Berkshire to "chickens" in Battery
Park, falls before his prowess. Some day when Carl is a prominent
"hoss" Doctor, we will attribute it to the proficiency acquired by
reason of his persistent patronage of the Hash House.

Scott is a quiet unassuming chap who claims the distinction of
being the only man in college who doesn't know at least one co-ed.
And yet he loves the ladies. At present Essex Junction is the seat
of his lode-stone. And although he is ambitious to become an auto-
mobile engineer, he .is.at present declaring his intentions of entering
life partnership with a "Slater," With his broad vocabulary ac-
quired on the Mexican border, Scott is a first rate "Crabbe," and
typical fire'sicle athlete.

a real man. Whether you need someone to lead the class in a

This curly haired apology for a Whiteman fulfills every re-
quirement for the missing link in Darwin's "Evolution of Mankind."
When "Steve" becomes involved as a participant in that conglomer-
ous association known as a roughhouse, he looks worse than-O,
use your own imagination. The nearest approach to the much
sought perpetual motion is the incessant vibration of his ever Wag-
ging tongue. Yet his big heart has won him friends, his big muscle
admirers, his big nerve all else he wanted. We drink to his breadth,
his brawn, his brain, and his brass. "May he live long and pros-

This microscopic puncture in the tire of progress came to the
seat of Wisdom from out the wilds of Barton. l-le is the class's
champion ivory tickler. Loves his books so well that he is taking a
six-year course. If Jonahis ambition flared up as often as the vol-
uminous cloud of nicotinal incense which he causes to spout effusively
into the heavens, he would be rushed by the Phi Beta Kappa Clan
instead of the IQAPPA bETA pl-ll gang. When we gaze upon
the ponderous "Jonah," whose muscles ripple automatically from
super-abundance of calisthenic performances, we see in the glory
of his gigantic stature how a whale or even a large shiner might
swallow a Hman."

Roy has been "Pegging" along quite steadily at track, but
lately he hasn't been "Pegging" so consistently. The reason for this
is unknown. As a musician, "be" Hat is his favorite key. The
. Kake Walk managementstates that he has no adequate contem-
porary as a cornetist, after listening to his renditions so bubbling
over with pathos. He comes from the home of the famous State
Institution with which his characteristics might indicate that he had
some connection. At any rate Professor Burdick has proved to
his own satisfaction the authenticity of this inference. .

This particular disciple of "Mike" Miner would sure have

Here we have the original corn-fed bashful country swain,
who never indulges in anything more strenuous than "Humps" and
movies. "lVlose" is not a homely man by any means, but for some
reason or other, he is not terriiically popular around Hay l-lill or
any other such resort. Probably it is his own fault that he is not
classed among the social elite, because to be numbered among
the favorite boys, one must socialize a bit, and as a social whirl,
Earl would not create enough wind to blow the dust off the trophies
in the Trophy Room. -

This titanic -exemplification of scholarly attainments handles
more hooks than any of our learned professors. Without a doubt -
he represents the cream of the cod-fish aristocracy along social X
endeavors. This pink, round-faced knight of the social coterie at-
tempts to be the peer of all trippers of the light fantastic with howling
success. We sincerely hope that his lordship by means of his care-

ln our opinion such a Worthy personification of Crotch should
receive commendation. During his efforts to uphold the unblem-
ished reputation of the Class of '18, against the mighty Merrill,
C-eorge'si anatomy suddenly met terra firma with much gusto. "Stan"
toured the border last summer and his carefully rehearsed tale of
border experiences should make a fitting subject for amorous con-
versation with his school mistress. Apologizing, we say that George's
awe-inspiring facial expression is so terrible and his stature so co-
lossal, that the editorial millstones durst not do him justice and
consequently he has not been ground to a pulp as he richly de-

A uSarp" likes agriculture,- that is, he chose to put himself
through the S. A. C. here rather than accept a scholarship to West
Point. Down at the border, as he sank for the third time in the
old mucl hole, there came to him in that last moment that kaleidosf
copic vision which showed him in one burning Hash all the good
times he had missed. just then his feet touched the velvet-covered
bottom, and he made an expiatory resolve to compensate for what
he had left undone. Little' things, after that, now no longer dis-

We cannot find 'Words adequate to express our praise of
"Tim's" merits. A typical grind and student, a hard and con-
sistent worker at all times. If you do not find him in the library
delving in the mysteries of untold literary treasures, he may be
seen at his desk in the laboratory conducting aggressive research
in the fields of modern chemistry. The spirit of the student eman-
ates from him, the refinement of the true scholar percolates the
atmosphere he breathes. Phi Beta Kappa was long since reached
and passed and now his efforts are directed toward fields yet 'un-
explored. Truly we can say nothing had of him. The hour glass

Loren did not get his idea of being P. B. K. until his second
year, since then he has been talking about it continuously, as he
always TALKS. His facial aperture is wide and spreads over
his entire countenance. I-lis line is long and covers the Whole year,
but it failed to convince the sceptical Grover. Possessed of a dis-
position like a cantankerous Scotchman, loyal as a German, strong
as a Swede, garrulous as a Mexican, hard-headed as Barre Gran-
ite, he will become mayor of Waterbury, unless he and Jim Keech

"By therlimpin lizardly lamfuzilumug-that is just one of
the enormous supply of similar phrases 'fWoody', keeps on hand
for emergencies. Undoubtedly "Woody" is the most awkward
man in college. He is known to have thrown two adversaries by
a clumsy and unintentional sweep of his foot. Every time he visits
the Majestic, he leaves a row of agonized faces in his wake as he
goes to his seat. He is an unswerving adherent of the principle that
a man ought to dress up once a week just for his own self respect.
But here we give up,-the English language is not comprehensive
or gaudy enough for the deserved treatment of such a subject.

walks like an Indian chief and is just as carefree. The only thing
that bothers him is the 'iDod-gastedn studying. He really doesn't
have time for it 'especially during the skating season. 'l-le has been
letting his hair grow ever since he saw Paderewski, quite becoming,
too. First attracted attention in his first year by reciting several
pages of Pieisoi while resting in his favorite pose on the back of
his neck and shoulder blades with legs draped artistically over the
sky line. He seems at least to have learned somewhat of the func-
tions of the muscles of the back. The fact that he is of more than
ordinary stature himself may account for his interest in tall build-
ings and towers.

nearby, who that tall, lanky, good natured chauffeur was, that was

Hogan is Without doubt the busiest man in college. Besides
the duties generally incumbent upon the student he has the Hotels,
automobiles, furnaces, F. A.--P. G., hospitals, to keep going and
then his many clinics and P. lVl.'s, which he is obliged to attend.
He's Pat's, not Pete's, right hand man, but We question whether
he should make this important branch of our science his life work.
His vast knowledge of Anthropology, concrete and bridge work,
has made him especially proficient in Osteology. He is now re-
vising "Piersol" on this subject. l-logan's middle name is technique
but as yet the only technique that he has shown is that of being five
or ten minutes late to every class. But, late or not, he knows his

"Cripe." The man of the hour. You'd never think for a
minute that he came from the little town of Compton. lt's only
during his ravings about theilittle girl and the moonlight on the
shore that you can imagine the surroundings of his childhood. The
study of Nledicine is hardening him, and if he progresses as much
in the future as he has in the past three years he will become a
rival of Brigham Young before he acquires a sheepskin. He plays
ball too, and like other big leaguers has his off days-every day.
Ask him! "Gil" finds that his stomach no longer turns in a surgi-
cal clinic. The medical world owes much- to this youth for his
recent classihcation of the skin appendages.

undecided. "ArtH is a great sport and keen for a good time, but
it makes him pretty nervous if he knows that any of his class-mates
are at home studying. He has a great eye for microscopic structures.
Says Hhe intends to specialize in laboratory work,-and paste-
boardsf' However, Perley is utheren and whatever he starts is
well done. V
CHARLES ARTHUR RAVEY
Burlington High Schoolg Alpha Kappa Kappa.
' A native of our college city. The boy with the cool, scrutin-
izing glance and the possessor of a scared haircut. He is at present
Mr. Tullyls first assistant and has hard work deciding whether he
likes medicine or janitor-ing better. "Raven" is a great lover of
human nature and believes in giving everything the once over. To
have him look at you through his big tortoise shell rims and wrinkle
up his forehead, and finally as his face relaxes to observe' his devilish
grin, is to wonder Whether you have been dreaming or Whether the
mortgage has been foreclosed and you are really in the realm
below. "Charlie" is a hard worker and a good student. His pro-
fessional knowledge and cleverness and his charm for the ladies will
undoubtedly put him on top of the ladder.

uGood things are often put up in small packagesf' Never
was there a truer saying. This quiet, red-cheeked, long-haired
young man never cuts a class, is ready to recite at any and all times,
is first to enter the lecture halls and the last to leave and seemingly
really loves to go to Bennie's class. A model youth, you say. Yes,
yet one doomed to an early death for he chews gum, -goes to the
movies, drinks coffee, and worries over his exams. Any time you
want to find "Sarge," he will be playing cards opposite Arthur in
the smoking room. Speaking of "Art," we thought for some time
they must be twins such was the affection and friendly rivalry that
existed. ,They are really relatives in that "Art's" uncle's cat ran
through "Sarge's" cousin's back yard back in '83. "Sarge, ap-
pears to be some student though never stewed.

West Chazy, New York
Mooers High Schoolvg Phi Chi.
Famous dog trainer, horned toad specialist. To look at this
sorrel-haired representative of West Chazy, one would never think
that he could thirst for Mexicaii blood. The man with the evil
eye and drooping forelock who never loses his temper, can always
be depended upon to recite in a way such that he can almost be
understood. Great fusser and regular ladies' man, the pride of
Eagle Pass and mentioned by Gus Sibley for honors, a true border
hero. Runs a young ladies, correspondence school in between his
evening walks up Colchester Ave. ftaking care of "Chic"J. He
surely willleave footprints on the sands of time before he leaves
for parts unknown.

At the time of falling leaves and sweet cider in the year 1913,
Abe's smiling countenance was hrst. seen about the Medical College.
And from the first day even until now he hath pursued his studies
with unquenchable vigor. And when for any reason his Professors
are detained' from the class room, then beginneth our "Abe" to
crab loudly and straightway he putteth down a black mark against
the offender in his book of remembrances. When eveningcometh,
behold "Abe" as he strutteth forth in gay apparel to eat fudge from
the hand of some High School damsel. 'Yet on the morrow doth
he appear with winsome look and vast notebook and reciteth glibly
his special portion. Behold the teacher as he putteth down the mark
and thinketh a dullard but a lucky guesser.

broad, blond countenance, those twinkling blue eyes and silky looks
give no inkling of that indomitable fighting spirit which
drove him on toward Mexico' City through seas of blood and
tears. The O F F I C E. R of the Hospital corps of the U. V. M.

1902 FOOTBALL TEAM
Eistnrp nt jnuthall at Eermunt
Football, as we know the game with all of its elaborate system of coaching, train-
ers, and training table, had its beginning at Vermont in the fall of IS97, with what
success depends upon what we determine success to be.
Supposing we say that to maintain a high standing among colleges of our size, to
make a creditable and at times excellent showing against the top notchers in the game,
to say that this is success our task becomes simpler and we can write freely of Vermont,s
splendid showing on the gridiron.
From i887 to l890 records show that the college supported a Uvarsityi' eleven,
though with what success cannot be said, as scores of games are unobtainable. We
have heard of trips to New l-laven and Hanover, and, speak it lightly, have been told
that scores of over l00 points were run up against our heroes-we have nothing but
praise however for- the men. who against all oddsdared tackle the giants of the game.
ln the fall of l894, Vermont played three games with Middlebury, a series which
will never be forgotten by those who had the good fortune to be in college at the time.
Winning at Burlington i2--0, great was our surprise to find a rejuvenated team at
Middlebury one week later. Before Vermont could get over the shock, lVliddlebury
had turned the tables 14-0.
Calls for help were answered by Dartmouth, who sent Mr. Hall, one of their
coaches, so that when the two teams met at Vergennes in the final game of the series,
Vermont was easily the master. The improvement in blocking and the breaking up of
Middleburyis plays was especially marked and was due in a great measure to the hard
work of Captain Woodwai'd and the good coaching of Mr. Hall. Vermont decidedly
outplayed her opponent at all points and if the game could have been Hnished would
have won by a much larger score. As it was, a touchdown, in the first half, by I-lunt,
netting 4 points, was the only score of the game, which had to be called early in the
second half because of the rough tactics both of players and spectators. The game was
played in a sea of mud and snow and while by no means a classic exhibition furnished
plenty of thrills for the spectator.
"VarsityU football was abolished by the faculty after this game and during the
succeeding three years our only dissipation was the annual game between the two lower
ln the fall of l897, however, a real start was made. Dr. Farrar of the Univer-
sity of Pennsylvania was secured as coach and a regular schedule of games was played.
Middlebury was beaten I4-O, while Norwich was overwhelmed 62-4. Tie games
were played with Rutland lnstitute and Montpelier Seminary. '
McLaughlin of Cornell took up the coaching the following year. Morse at end
and Waddell at guard added strength while the veteran members of the team showed
1909 FOOTBALL TEAM
the advantages of a year's coaching. Dartmouth was played, the score resulting 45-6
against Vermont. Holy Cross won a game 22-5. These were the only defeats of
the season, victories being scored against the strong Ogdensburg Athletic Association
and Montpelier Seminary, the latter being defeated twice. A tie game was also played
with Rutland Institute.
The season of 1899 will long be remembered above all else for a victory over
Colgate at Albany 6-0, the score coming near the close of the second half. Middle-
bury and Norwich were defeated while Amherst Aggies were led to a Il-6 score
and New Hampshire won only by the close score of 6-5. Brigham Academy and
Montpelier Seminary were defeated, while l-loly Cross furnished the only unpleasant
feature of the year, winning 45-0.
Dartmouth was held to a scoreless tie the following year, a fact which is worthy
of special notice. Middlebury was beaten twice, Rensselaer once, while close games
were lost to Amherst Aggies and Uniong Montpelier and Brigham Academy furnished
easy victories, but in the closing games of the season the Ogdensburg and Vlfatertown
Athletic Associations and Cornell scored easy victories. Patterson at end and Parker
at guard, Vermont stars, were on this team.
On Oct. 10th, l9Ol, Dr. P. McMahon, U. P. '00, took charge of the team,
which under his training acquired such speed and efhciency in offensive play, coupled
with aggressiveness and determination in defensive play, as to enable Vermont, five
days later, to win from Tufts by a score of 6 and within six inches of I2 points to 5
for Tufts. Middlebury defeated Vermont on Oct. 12th by the score of l2-0, but
later in the season Vermont had revenge winning 20-VO. Norwich was beaten 56--O,
while a scoreless tie with Wesleyan in which Vermont carried the ball within six inches
of the line featured the season. Union and Dartmouth won close games, while Syra-
cuse and Cornell found the team battered, but game in the closing matches of the season.
Morse and Captain Strait played brilliantly.
The season of l902 was one of the most successful in the history of football at
Vermont. No better account can be given of the work of the team than the following
record of games played. 1
Sept. 27 Montpelier Seminary . 54-0
Oct. ' l Brown . . 0-0
Oct. 4. Dartmouth 0-l l
Oct. I5 Yale . 0-32 '
Oct. I8 St. Lawrence l6-0
Oct. 22 Williams . 5-5
Oct. 25 Holy Cross 5-Il
Nov. l Rensselaer -l l-6
Nov. 8 Wesleyan . 5-0
Nov. l 5 Union . 29-0
The entire team played consistently and while many are entitled to special praise,
the,work of Gale at center in the Yale game stands forth when in addition to looking
after his own man he held back time after time the mighty Class who had proved a
tower of strength for Yale at guard. Professor Cloudman coached the team. ln the
words of a writer of the time "he put his own will, force, determination, fight and
above all, clean, gentlemanly bearing into the playing of every man and the team as
a wholef, . '
In considering the season of 1903, it must be borne in mind that while the schedule
was unusually heavy the team wascomparatively light. Yale, Dartmouth, Vvest Point
and Brown constituted a quartette of hard games in which defeat meant no disgrace.
The two St. Lawrence games were easily won while Massachusetts State scored but
5 points on a place kick. The game against West Point was bitterly fought, the fact
that Vermont lost 20-0 in no way cletracting from the praise due any adversary of
the army team. The final game of the season with Rensselaer, a team of its own weight,
resulted in a victory of 45-0 for Vermont.
The season of 1904 did not come up to expectations. The team was light and
inexperienced, and the schedule hard. In the game against Tufts, though outweighed
several pounds to a man, by dint of hard playing Vermont managed to score a tie
5-5. Of the rest of the season little may be said. The team worked hard but was
V uDudu Drake of Nliddlebury took up the coaching the following fall and no
more popular coach has ever had charge of a Vermont team. Dartmouth was held
to TZ-0 score, Wesleyan won l9-l lyand Amherst l6-6. However these close
scores do not reflect to the discredit of Vermont. Nliddlebury and Norwich were each
beaten twice, while New Hampshire State was held to a scoreless tie. Brown had to
put the nightcap on what had been a successful season and this was done handsomely,
Vermont being on the short end of a 56-0 score.
However one looks at the ,season of 1906, one cannot but say that Vermont did
exceedingly well. The open game with the forward pass enabled the team to meet her
stronger rivals on a more even ground, a ground where weight' doeslnot count for so
much as under the old rules, and since the majority of games on the schedule were with
such opponents a better showing was made. Henry White, Watkins and Keislich
played splendidly in the back field, while Cassidy and Frank did well in the line.
The season of l907 was one of the most satisfactory Vermont has ever experienced.
Starting with a scoreless tie with Dartmouth, victories over Wesleyaii, Norwich, and
Holy Cross followed. Xvilliams won l7-5, New Hampshire was beaten 34-0,
while the powerful Brown machine, by a like score, reversed the decision in the final
game of the season. To Coach Drake and Physical Director Cloudman are due
unstinted praise for the condition of the players. "Buck', Smith, Watkiris, White
and Pierce formed an exceptional backfield, while Cassidy, as usual, played a brilliant,
aggressive game, time after time proving himself the mainstay of the team.
Drake retired and Herr took his place the following fall. His material was good
and he handled it well, developing a fast, well rounded eleven. Slavin at half-back
and Thomas at center proved valuable additions to the team. The scores of this
season deserve to be shown and are as follows:
Sept. 20. Dartmouth .
Oct. 3 Holy Cross .
Oct. I0 Amherst .
Oct. l 4. Massachuset ate
Oct. l 7. Norwich .
Oct. 24. Cornell
Oct. 28 Norwich
Nov 7 Williams
Nov. l 4. Bowdoin .
If Vermont ever had a successful season surely the season of l909 is her banner
year. Thomas replaced Herr as coach. A writer of the time has this to say, "I-le
worked hard, making us think of the time of 'Dud' Drake, inspiring a spirit of grit and
fight as well as a thorough knowledgeuof football, which had its good results. We
can thank Coach Thomas for giving us a team which prevented Dartmouth from scor-
ing, which won from St. Lawrence, Norwich and New Hainpsliire State, which lost
in hard luck to Cornell and Brown and which won from Amherst, the dearest victory
of all." i
The review of the season of l9l0 cannot but be rather discouraging to any Ver-
mont man. If the team had played but two games, those against Cornell and Syracuse,
it would have gone down in history as one of the best teams that ever represented
Vermont. But since the rest of the schedule has to be counted in, it can only be said
that the l9l0 team was a team of great capabilities, but a team which failed to realize
itself and to make the best of what lay within itself. Remember therefore Vermont
scored 5 points to Cornell's l2, while Syracuse by a goal from placement won by only
3 points. Forget the rest of the season and allow Dartmouth, Brown and Norwich
to do the gloating.
,After the slump of the preceding year many had lost faith in Vermont's football
ability. Even the players were somewhat lacking in confidence at the beginning of the
season. Soon, however, prospects began to brighten. Under Coach Slavin the new men
began to show good form. West Point was held to a l2-0 score, after which Clark-
son Tech. and St. Lawrence were easily defeated. Maine l7---O and Dartmouth
l2--0, 'creditable defeats, were followed by a victory over Norwich. Syracuse was
held to a l7-0 score, while in the closing game Brown had to fight hard for a single
touchdown. lVlacKintosh, Sefton and O'Brien did excellent work throughout the season.
Earl Pickering of Minnesota took up the coaching the following fall. Great were
Vermont's expectations, sad were the results when looked at from a victory standpoint.
Dartmouth, Holy Cross and Bowdoin won e asily, Rensselaer was barely beaten 6-0,
but the three games which stand out to V ermont's credit were a 9--7 victory over
Massachusetts State, a 6-0 defeat by Springfield Training School and a hard-luck
defeat by Brown l2-7, after Vermont apparently had the game well in hand 7-5.
Sefton and Whalen did splendid work. ,
A change in the coaching policy, poor condition of the players and general adverse
conditions resulted disastrously in l9l3. Middlebtiry was defeated l0-7. Dart-
mouth and Bowdoin were both' scored on though the former won 33-7 and the latter
l3--3. Brown, Williams, and Tufts won easy victories. In Little, Vermont had
a tackle of exceptional ability.
Another change in coaches the following year worked to a disadvantage in the
early games of the season. After losing to Williams 3-0, Maine, Dartmouth, and
Colgate rolled up big scores. Then .the team found itself. New Hampshire was
beaten 20-O and Fordham 7-6. Middlebury was held to a scoreless tie, while
Holy Cross won the closing game 7-0. Flynn was captain and played a good game
at guard while Little and Denning lived up to their reputations at tackle.
The l9l5 team was badly disrupted by faculty restrictions-a new coaching
system was again tried, Robinson of Colgate being in charge. Worcester Polytechnic
Institute was held to a scoreless tie in the opening game, after which Maine, Dartmouth,
Springfield Training School and Brown played havoc with the team. Towards the
close of the season the team pulled itself together defeating New Hampshire Zl-7
and springing a surprise in the closing game of the year by holding the most formidable
team Middlebury has ever had to a tie, the score being 6-6. Captain Burke and
Palmer did splendid work in the backfield, while DeMarco compared favorably with
Vermont's famous centers.
The fall of 1916 did not bring many victories but it developed a wealth of
material which will be available next season. The team started the season brilliantly,
winning from New Hampshire State, Clarkson College, and from Connecticut State
College. Then came a series of defeats at the hands of Brown, Columbia, Norwich,
Middlebury, and Rochester.
To sum up then, against such teams as Fordham, Middlebury, Norwich, New
Hampshire State, Rensselaer, Tufts, and Clarkson Tech, Vermont has more than held
her own. Against Williams, Vvesleyan, Holy Cross, Colgate, Union and Massachu-
setts State creditable scores have been made, while against Dartmouth, Cornell, Brown,
Syracuse and West Point our teams have at times played brilliantly. To an unbiased
mind, therefore, the conclusion must be apparent that football at Vermont has been a
In compiling these records the writer acknowledges with thanks the assistance he
has received from the reviews appearing from time to time in the ARIEL. In several
instances he has copied verbatim for there have been seasons, though very few, when
he has been unable to get a personal line on the team.
ln conclusion, boldness prompts the suggestion of an all-time Vermont eleven

In only one choice does the writer feel that there is room for an argument. Despite
such splendid candidates for full back as "Buck" Smith, Kieslich, Strait and Strong,
the preference has been given Bowman because of his exceptional ability in a depart-
ment where Vermont has never been over strong. As a punter, Bowman is easily the
best Vermont has ever had and because of this is given the choice over his rivals for the
position. What a wonderful record' such a team as this would make.
Asto the future, it is in the hands of a capable man if all we have heard of Coach
Edmunds is true. May he make good and may the college hold on to him for many
years to come. There is no doubt that frequent shifting of policy is bad for the team.
Give the new coach all the support he deserves and Vermont is bound to win.

Four of last year's "V" men and a large number of
Freshmen opened Vermont's l9l6 football season with a
33-0 victory over St. lVlichael's College. The game was
not, however, the easy victory that Vermont expected. The
backfield, composed of Bowman, Gilioli, Sunderland, and
Burke showed up exceptionally well while Plumb and Bar-
rows did good work on the line. 4
Vermont completely outplayecl Clarkson Tech at Cen-
tennial Field October 7, the score being 52-7. The team
showed considerable improvement since the St. lVIichael's
game, the backheld being able to make gains at will. DeMar-
co at center, for the first time of the season, was so effective in
opening holes and fathoming the enemy's plays that their trick
formations were of no avail. The lucky recovery of a for-
ward pass on Vermontys five-yard line and the resulting touch-
down was the only thing that prevented the Green and Gold
from getting a shut-out.
Columbia defeated Vermont in a hard fought game in
New York city on October l4, 6-0. The two teams were
very evenly matched throughout the game with the punting
honors divided about equally between Bowman and Cochran.
Columbia scored its touchdown early in the third quarter by
clever forward passes. For Vermont Gilioli and Bowman
gained effectively around the ends.
In a game characterized by loose playing throughout, the
varsity downed Connecticut State College on October 21 by
the score of 23--IO. Vermont always had the upper hand
and worked forward passes much better than formerly. The
teams showed considerable improvement on the offensive,
Burke and Ciilioli being strong ground gainers, while Conroy
showed up well at quarter back. Bowman completely out-
classed his opponent in punting.
Vermont won a spectacular victory over New Hampshire
State College on Qctober 8 at Durham. Playing a team
which outweighed them about ten pounds to the man and
which was composed mostly of veterans, which held them
scoreless for three periods while they themselves piled up nine
points, the Green and Gold took
the ball in the last few minutes of
play and made I3 points by snap-
py playing. There were no indi-
vidual stars, the whole team playing
a fighting game throughout and the
men deserve credit for the victory.
A defeat by Brown at Provi-
dence on November 4 startezl a
series of defeats for the Vermont
team. Although the result was 42
0, a better game was played than
the score would indicate. Brown
gained practically at will in the
hrst half, scoring four touchdowns
and making eleven first downs to
Vermont,s four, but in the second
half Coach Leary's men began to
get the pace and held the victors to
two touchdowns. In the last quar-
ter Vermont held Brown for eight
first downs while the varsity was
held for seven.
Norwich defeated Vermont 7-
6 at Northfield on November ll. "Bon
No score was made by either of the teams until
the third period, when McDonald of Norwich
made' a 50-yard run to a touchdown Mclver
kicked the goal. Vermont immediately made a
touchdown but failed to kick the goal
last period through hard rushing.
lVliddlebury cinched the State Championship
defeating Vermont at Burlington on November I8
by the score of 6-Z. Vermont's game was char
acterized by loose playing in the pinches Middle
bury was clever with the forward pass using many
to good advantage. Bower was the very heart
and push of the Middlebury team. The onlv
score for Vermont was made in the second period
when Bower was held for a touchback

Every undergraduate at Vermont should be acquainted with the baseball history
of our college. The names of Abbey, Pond, Collins and Gardner should be as familiar
as the names of Walter Camp, Stagg, Carter and Pa Corbin to Yale men. These names
mean something to us and it is well to know what they stand for.
Early records are hard to obtain but we do know that in 1888 the Hrst triangular
league was formed between Middlebury, Norwich, and Vermont. Baseball, which has
always been our leading sport, was played and ours were the honors with two victories
over each of our opponents.
This league evidently died in infancy for our records show no further games with
either Middlebury or Norwich until l89O, when we won two more games from the former.
Dartmouth was played for the first time in l889 and, as might be expected, the
game resulted in a defeat for Vermont. The following year, however, we managed to
win one of a series of these games with our rivals from New Hampshire.
Vermont has had three exceptional eras of baseball supremacy, the first beginning
in 1891 and lasting throughout the season of l893. Bert Abbey, who has been called,
and rightly so, the father of baseball at Vermont, was captain in l89l, and had such
famous players as Pond and O'Connor, pitchersg Stewart and Ranney, catchers, Joel
Allen, L. Allen and Kinsella, infielders. ln that year Williams was beaten four out of
five games. Harvard and Yale proved obstacles but Amherst, Michigan and Tufts
were each defeated once. The season was a splendid success, nineteen gamesbeing won
and six lost.
The following year saw little change in the make-up of the team and, as one would
expect, the players showed the benefit of a seasonls work together. The first southern
trip was taken, victories being scored against Fordham, Virginia and Georgetown. But
one college game was lost during the season, Cornell winning 5 to l. However, Ver-
mont had sweet revenge two days later turning the tables 9 to 5. Wesleyan, Yale and
Brown had strong teams, still Vermont defeated each in turn.
The value of having an experienced team was further shown in l893. Pond and
Stewart had developed into a wonderful battery and received able assistance from Cooke
and Kinsella, the latter having been moved from shortstop to make way for Hill. Allen
was again at first base. This was the year that the University of Pennsylvania had its
famous team with Bayne and Coogan in the points. Never did the wonderful Bayne
receive such a trouncing as he received at the hands of Vermontg 29 to l l was the final
score and the Green and Gold was the winner. Yale was again beaten while the leading
southern teams also fell before the prowess of Vermont.
During the summer an Intercollegiate baseball tournament was held at Chicago
as a feature of the World's Fair. Yale was defeated on July fourth. On the eighth
Amherst took a close match and on the tenth in the final game of the tournament Yale
defeated Vermont by the score of 2. to l. The famous Carter, greatest of all Yale's
pitchers, was in the box and is said to have remarked, after the game, mlihey call me
a wonderful pitcher but that man Cooke is better than I amf' It was an error, one
small error that lost the game and championship for Vermont.
The end of the 'glorious era was in sight the following year when but seven games
were won and ten lost. Allen was Captain, while Pond and Cooke were still in college
but the greatestof all Vermontls catchers had been graduated and Kinsella was not
up to his former standard.
Victories over l-larvard and Holy Cross in the closing games of 1895 were the
redeeming features of another off year. Dinsmore, another of Vermont's famous
pitchers, took the place of Cooke and with Pond did clever work, but the rest of the
team was only ordinary.
The acquisition of Miller, Agon, and Johnson, the development of Whelan and
the clever work of Dinsmore resulted in a comeback the following year. Twelve games
were won and nine lost. Dartmouth was beaten in three out of four games while West
Point, Cornell and Amherst were each defeated once.
The '97 team was most erratic, the redeeming features being victories over Ford-
ham, Seton Hall and Manhattan and a series with Wesleyaii, resulting in two victories
and one defeat for Vermont.
The brilliant pitching of Oatley, after Miner had gone to pieces, enabled Vermont
to beat Cornell at lthaca the following year. This together with a victory over West
Point and two victories over Tufts were the only features of another off year.
The '99 team was still weaker and the schedules included many of the smaller
colleges. Richmond's splendid pitching against Pennsylvania resulting in a well-earned
victory was the only feature.
Sad were the seasons of l900 and l90l. Victories were few and far between,
even Middlebury winning a game and championship in l9Ol. Vermont had at last
struck bottom and it was evident that something had to' be done. If Abbey was the
father of baseball at Vermont it is only fair to say that Davis was the savior. Coming
as he did in 1902, when everything looked black, and with only an ordinary team
behind him he checked the reverses and put Vermont back on the map. One would
not rate Davis among the first four of Vermont's pitchers, but no one can 'deny his
importance in re-establishing Vermontis supremacy on the ball field. V
W00dWa1'd and Peck added strength in 1903, while Campbell and Williains
helped round out a well-balanced team the following year. Stronger teams were being
played with good results, Columbia being defeated twice in' 1903, while the season's
record in 1904 resulted in fifteen victories, five defeats and a splendid tie with Holy Cross.
A well-balanced team with plenty of veterans started the second exceptional era
in l905, an era which lasted throughout the season of l909. Reulbach was the lead-
ing pitcher in l905, while Collison at second base and Vfilliams at shortstop performed
1908 BASEBALL TEAM
cleverly. Victories were scored over Lehigh, Holy Cross, Columbia, Maine, Bow-
doin and others.
. ln i906 Vermontls most famous ball players, Gardner and Collins, made their
appearance. Holy Cross and Williams were each defeated, a second game with the
latter resulting in a tie.
Burrington joined the team the following year and by his clever catching ably
assisted Collins. Eleven games were won and six lost, the schedule being none too easy.
In 1908 the players again showed the value of experience. Harvard, Brown,
Amherst, Dartmouth, Tufts and Holy Cross were defeated, while tie games were played
with Villanova and Dartmouth. Pennsylvania won a close game, Hunt pitching for
Vermont. Probably no better infield combination has ever represented Vermont than
Collison, at second, Paquet at third, and Gardner at short stop.
Twenty-three games were played in l909, of which fourteen were victories.
Collins as usual pitched great ball but Gardner and Paquet were missed from the infield.
Close games were lost to Yale and Williams, while Penn. State, Brown, 'Holy Cross,
Amherst and Dartmouth were among the teams defeated.
Vfith Collins gone Vermont was fortunate to win fourteen games the following
year. Georgetown was overwhelmed I8 to l, while Holy Cross was again defeated
and two tie games played with Penn. State. Hunt and Haynes pitched well and Bur-
rington caught his usual good game.
The third great era began in 191 l and lasted until the close of 1913. A clever
squad of Freshmen, Malcolm, Winckler, Donnelly and Halstein were aided by such
able veterans as Flaherty, O,Dea and McDonald. Thirteen games were won, six
lost and one tied.
Dowd and Fraser added strength to the infield the following year and the players
gave a brilliant account of themselves. Sixteen games were won, six lost and two tied.
Vffashington and Lee, Catholic University and Lafayette were among the conquered, while
a scoreless tie with Harvard was a feature. Nlalcolm and Mayforth formed the best
college battery of the year. '
The season of 1914 was noted for the extra-inning games, no less than four being
played. Fordham, Cornell and the Chinese University of Hawaii were defeated. The
game with Holy Cross, a victory after thirteen innings, will long be remembered. The
team, however, was not quite as strong as had been hoped, for Winckler, Dowd, Fraser
and Halstein were among the missing, while lVlalcolm's arm was lame a great part of
the season. His pitching was plucky, however, and he was ably supported by May-
forth behind the bat.
In 1914 twenty-eight games were played, of which eleven were victories, four-
teen defeats, while three resulted in ties. Vvest Point, Trinity, Dartmouth and North
Carolina were among the defeated teams, while the no-decision games were against
Georgetown, A. 5: M. and Williains.
V Ten victories, twelve defeats and one tie in l9l5, while a little better showing,
still was not with Vermont's highest standards. Middlebury was defeated twice while
Trinity, Syracuse and Wesleyan each lost a game.
The records of 1916 are more familiar to the reader than to the writer and must
therefore be passed over without comment further than to say that a new batch of
players was developed which augurs well for the coming season.
One noticeable fact in connection with baseball at Vermont is that fifteen games
in all have been played with Middlebury, of which twelve have been victories, and
only once, in l90l, has Vermont lost the State 'Championship to her rival. Eighteen
games have been played with Norwich, all of which have proved victories for Vermont.
There have been other good players who have aided materially in the splendid
records that have been. made and due credit should be given them. Each class has
its heroes but the most famous of Vermont's ball players are probably those who have
The following summary gives a good idea of the strength of Vermont against
some of her most, formidable college rivals, a record any team might feel proud of.

The Qasehall Season nf 1916
New Hampshire State opened Vermontls 1916 baseball
season and met defeat in a 5 inning game, 3-0. Rain inter-
fered with the play but as far as the game went Vermont out-
played her opponents. On April 25 the team left to meet
Brown, Boston College and Harvard. Brown was the victor
8-I in a game much closer than the score would indicate.
For six innings the Brown men could do nothing with Palmeifs
delivery and Vermont led l-O, but Vermont loosened up,
allowing her opponents to score on bunched hits and errors.
Winter weather canceled the game with Boston College but
the team,s lay-off was ineffective against Harvard, Vermont
losing l0--l. Weakiiess in pitching, errors and utter in-
ability to cope with Garritt,s delivery assured Vermont of
defeat from the first.
The defeat of Middlebury, 6-l , added to the celebra-
tion of Founcleris Day. Palmer was at his best allowing the
visitors but four scattered hits while the Vermont batsmen hit
Crippen and Garrison at will.
Vermont next encountered a series of
disastrous defeats. The strong Springfield .
Y. M. C. A. team were clearly our
superiors. Ar Dartmouth, Vermont lost
by a score of 6-l. Failure to
hit and loose fielding again caused Vermontis defeat.
The western New York trip meant three more defeats
for Vermont. Cornell nosed Vermont out of an exciting game
lVlay ll, the score being 4-3. At Syracuse, lVlcCormick,
pitching his first college game, was not skillful enough for the
heavy Syracuse hitters. The next day, at Colgate, Swett's
three 'bagger with two men on bases still gave Colgate the
R. P. I. and M. A. C. further added to our defeats on
the home grounds. Vermont wasted golden opportunities by
lack of hitting at vital moments. All the Vermont pitchers
were used in these games and were generally ineffective.
The season was closed by victories over Boston College
and Nliddlebury. Putting up its best game of ball yet shown,
Vermont decisively defeated Boston College l3-3 and Mitl-
dlebury l5-l , thus closing the season strongly. .

As the ARIEL goes to press, the prospects indicate a
baseball season that will deserve to rank with Vermont's
"great eras." Nearly all the old men of last year are back
with the exception of Spear and lVlacCormick, while there
is new material of varsity caliber, besides the return of
"Jimmy" Linnehan and "Speed" Denning, of past years'
fame. Early spring practice has been conducted with added
conveniences in the annex and occasional additions to the
A word must be said of our baseball coach. In Wil-
liam C. Hazelton Vermont has a man who, with the proper
spirit in the squad and in the student body behind it, can
produce a team that will have to be placed among the top-
notchers. "Bill" I-lazelton is well known to Vermont men,

Ztaistnrp of Trask at Eermunt y
When a Vermonter speaks of track athletics he immediately thinks of Gutterson.
The splendid achievements of this marvelous athlete furnish the one bright spot in a
dark and somewhat unsatisfactory athletic past.
In 1891 Vermont joined the New England Intercollegiate Athletic Association,
sending Lyman Allen, '93, to Springfield, as its representative, where he took second
place in the running high jump.
After three years of dismal failure, during which even the faithful and hard-worlo
ing Allen could not win a point, Vermont withdrew from the Association. S. F. W.
in the Cynic of June 8, l895, writes as follows, "At the meeting of the executive com-
mittee Vermont's resignation was accepted and we are now out of it. This fact brings
us sharp against a few stern realities. To many of us it seemed disgraceful that we
should resign from the Association and I was one of the most rabid, but having seen
the games, the men who participated in them and the facilities they have to get into
training for them, one cannot help realizing that though we undoubtedly have as good
material as can be found in New England, it is utterly impossible for us to make any
kind of a showing against the men who have every convenience such as a good general
athletic field, shower and plunge baths and trainers, unless by some good fortune we
should come into possession of the same. For years we have struggled against odds and
the odds have won, and it seems a wise movement to wait until we can compete on the
same footing as other New England Colleges."
Therefore from 1895 until i903 we had to content ourselves with sporadic bursts
of enthusiasm which found vent in interclass games. Conditions had changed for the
better in l903. ln Professor Cloudman we had a capable coach and our facilities for
training were much improved. Re-entering the league we sent Patterson to Worcester,
where he scored two points, finishing third in the 880-yard run. l904, l905 and l906
produced no winners. Further efforts for success were being made, however, a relay
team being sent to the B. A. A. games for the first time. fUnfortunately we were
stacked up against Maine, to whom we lost by I5 yards.l
ln l907 the relay team again lost to Maine though by a closer margin. Our
first dual meet with Tufts as our opponent showed further progress for while Tufts
won, the score was close, 66-51. At the league meet Merrihew finished second in
the mile run, scoring 3 points. Altogether the year should be called fairly successful.
In l908 a three-cornered race was run with Maine and Bates at the Boston
games, Vermont finishing second to Maine. A dual meet with St. Lawrence at Canton
resulted in defeat by one point. At the Association games Dulctin qualified in the
quarter and Campbell in the half-mile races. The following year the tables were turned
on St. Lawrence, this time at Burlington, the score being 82-35. As usual Maine
won the relay race. E '
Gutterson featured in the dual meet with Maine in 1910, winning 24 of the 34
points scored by Vermont. Maine Won the meet, however, 91-34. At Worcester
Vennont tied with Maine for sixth place, Gutterson coming within IM inches of the
record in the broad jump. The relay team again drew Maine as its opponenteenough
1911 was one of Vermontis most successful seasons. Maine and Colgate both
won in dual meets but Maine had to fight hard, the score being 74-52. In the league
games Gutterson broke the low hurdles record, won first in the broad jump and third
in the high jump. With I2 points to his credit he was the greatest individual point
winner of the day-a remarkable achievement. The relay team came to life and for
the first time Maine was defeated. Cross-country meets with Tufts and Bowdoin
resulted in victories for Vermont. The value of an experienced adviser was being
shown and too much praise cannot be given Doctor Stone.
Gutterson won everything in sight in 1912, taking first in the low hurdles at the
University of Pennsylvania games in Philadelphia. This was Vermont's first experience
in these games and we can well be proud of winning 6th place. At Worcester we also
took 6th place, Gutterson breaking the New England Intercollegiate record in the
broad jump, setting the new figures at Z3 feet 5 2-5 inches. ln addition he was second
in the low hurdles. Dual meets with Colgate and Massachusetts State resulted in an
even break, Colgate winning 70 1-3-46 2-3 and Massachusetts losing 36-81. The
cross-country team defeated Bowdoin but lost to Massachusetts. ln both of these races
Hayden finished first. The relay team was given a new opponent, Tufts being the
choice and Tufts the winner.
At the Olympic games held in Stockholm, Sweden, during the summer, Gutterson
won the broad jump with a new Qlympic record of 24 feet 11M inches, just My inch
below the world's record. With this crowning achievement, Vermont lost by gradua-
tion the greatest athlete it has ever had. Though We have had no consistent point
winners since his time, it. is gratifying to know that the best athletes in the New England
Colleges are still trying to break his two records in the broad jump and low hurdles,
while many an Olympic meet is sure to be held before his most famous record is even
approached. - ,
It seems tame to come back to the old order of things, but apart from a victory
over Middlebury 64M-43M, nothing of importance occurred in 1913. Tufts again
won the relay race at the Boston Games.
.Interest was revived the following year when three dual meets were held: Colgate
won 65M-38Mg Middlebury was defeated 75-50, while New Hampshire State
was beaten 67-59. Added to this, Tufts was finally overcome in the relay race at
Two meets were held in 1915, Colgate defeating Vermont 77-27, while Mid-
dlebury was beaten 69-57. The relay team found a new opponent at the Boston
games, winning from Rhode Island State in the linal sprint. Great credit is due Palmer
for his work in this race. l..eBaron also representing Vermont won fourth place in the
Amile handicap at these games.
Three meets, held in 1916, resulted in two defeats for Vermont. Middlebury
won the first meet, May 3rd, at Middlebury, in an unsatisfactorily managed contest,
the score being 72-54. On May 13, Vermont defeated the M. A. C. team on
Centennial Field 73-53. The final meet of the season was against New Hampshire
State at Durham, June 3. The result was an easy victory for New Hampshire, 8392
-41 Vermont lost the relay race to Rhode Island State College in the B. A. A.
S. F. W. was right when he said, "We have the rnenf' Given increased facil-
ities and the proper attention, there is no reason, now that Dartmouth is out of the
league, why Vermont should not compete with the smaller New England Colleges.
Can we not, therefore, hope and predict that the next decade will show a still greater
improvement in track athletics at Vermont? Looking at it broadly the outlook is most
encouraging. - '

Frederic William Stone was born in New York City December l0, l849. l-le
attended school in New.York and later went two years to Miles Military School at
Brattleboro, Vermont. Being possessed of a roving nature, he went west to Texas,
where, only a boy of seventeen, he won his first race against William Briton. At this
time he joined the Texas Rangers, with whom he remained a year. He then returned
East to finish his schooling and was graduated at Brattleboro in l869.
From then on he continued racing as his profession. There was no distinct line
between amateurism and professionalism in those days and anyone who challenged Stone
to a race was given a chance, but 'SDoc" usually crossed the tape ahead of his opponent.
He has now nearly three hundred races to his credit after a long and successful career
as a runner.
Three events in Professor Stone's life should be cause for a good deal of pride.
I-le can truly be proud of having won the short distance championship in three different
world's games. ln San Francisco he won the l00-yard race from John Cozad, then
the champion of England and America. The second championship was won in Australia
against such competitors as Frank Hewitt of England, l-larris of New Zealand and
many others. Some of his records were made there, those in the 50 and l00-yard
races and the hurdles. It is notable to add that 6'Doc" won the 440 in 49 seconds,
after running outside his opponents on a circular track. At Pittsburg, in l884, he won
the championship against the best men of England, Canada, and the United States.
Some of his records arez- l00 yards in 9 4-5 secondsg 150, yards in I4 3-5-secondsg
220 yards in 21 l-5 seconds, and 440 yards in 48 4-5 seconds.
In 1893 Mr. Stone began to teach athletics at Columbia University. After two
years there, he became connected with the Manhattan Athletic Club. Then he secured
a position with the Chicago Athletic Association, where he remained eight years. l-le
was then Physical Director at Miami University for ten years. He has now been at
Vermont for five years.
These are only a few of the interesting incidents of "Doc's" life. A few in-
quiries of "DocH regarding his past life invariably bring forth a few startling stories
regarding his feats on and off the cinder path. These stories and the few records set
forth here surely reveal the genius of this remarkable man. Besides his famous career
on the cinders, he has acquired a fine record as an athletic director and has the repu-
tation of being one of the best starters in the East.
While at Vermont, Professor Stone has worked hard for the University. The
material for track that has entered Vermont has been enabled by his help to realize
the very best of their ability. We feel confident that we voice the opinion of all those
connected with the University of Vermont, when We say that the resignation of Pro-
fessor Stone will be felt as a real loss that will call for the sincere regrets of every one
of us, his admirers and friends.

Mey 3. If resulted in e defeat for Vermont, 72m54. The first
part of the meet was very close but Middlebury pulled ahead in the
distance runs and discus throw. Vermont captured three firsts and tied
i 'tfl e for two others. The Middlebury records were broken in the mile
Cap't Burrage run, the pole vault, and discus throw. '
The varsity came back the next week defeating Massachusetts Agricultural Col-
lege, 73-53. The meet was never close, Vermont keeping the advantage at all
times. lVlassachusetts excelled in the distance events, but only obtained five firsts ins
cluding the discus throw, which was forfeited by Vermont.
The New Hampshire State team was easily our superior in a meet at Durham,
June 3, winning by a score of 83M-41 Smith, '18, Burrage, '17, and Thomas,
'19, were the high point winners for Vermont. New Hampshire records were broken
in the mile, half-mile, and shot put.

Tennis is an ancient and honorable game at Vermont, going back to the time of
Torrey, '93. Unfortunately we had neither funds nor the opportunity to send Torrey
against the other New England College stars, but there is no question in the minds of
those who watched him play that here was an exceptional player. Throughout his stay
in college, he won the championship in singles and with D. Allen, a classmate,
Another 'clever player and student of the game was West, '96, champion during
l894, l895 and l896. I-lis match against Sanders in the finals of 1896 was one of
the most scientific ever played in Burlington. Torrey, '98, fell heir to the crown in
l897, but unfortunately for the good of the game Prof. l-lowes entered the lists the
following year, the championship of the college passing from the student body to the
Bigelow, 399, Kirkpatrick, '00 and Lawrence, '0l, were brilliant players, the
two latter being unquestionably the best that have ever represented Vermont. Tour-
naments were held with Bowdoin in 1899 and Dartmouth in l900, the scores in both
cases being l0-l0. At Longwood, Kirkpatrick and Lawrence played scientific tennis,
Vermont finishing high in the tournament.
Dartmouth was defeated ll-5 in l90l and ll-7 in l902. Miller, Wad-
leight and Ufford ably assisted Lawrence in l90l, while Hutchinson, Wallace,
Brackett and Miller upheld the honor of the college in l9OZ. Bowdoin with its splen-
did team furnished the only drawback, winning by the score of l5-5. Hutchinson
and Wallace represented the college at Longwood in l903 and were fairly successful,
but a tournament with Dartmouth resulted in defeat, l l-5.
Either our opponents were becoming stronger or our new players were not up to
Vermont's standard for, apart from a tournament with Bowdoin resulting in a tie
l0-l0 in l904, there is nothing encouraging of which to write for several years.
Dartmouth and Bowdoin both won in l905 and 1906, while Dartmouth overwhelmed
Vermont in 1907, the score being I4-2.
At Longwood in 1908, Peter of Vermont threw a scare into the Dartmouth camp,
winning the first set against Stern and having the third set well in hand 4-2, when
the cheering of the Dartmouth rooters got his nerve, Stern winning the set 6-4 and
with it the match. This was the most interesting match of the whole tournament.
A revival in interest took place in 1909, Fuller winning the college championship.
Unfortunately, however, the splendid efforts of the players in matches against Dart-
mouth and in the tournament at Longwood resulted in defeat. A match with Amherst,
expectantly looked forward to, had to becalled off on account of rain. If victory was
lacking this year, enthusiasm was not.
Defeats by Wesleyan, Union and at Longwood in 1910 did not dampen the
ardor of the playersg with the experience gained, splendid scores were made the follow-
ing year against Clarkson Tech. 6-0, Wesleyan 2-4 and Massachusetts State 1--5.
I-lay did excellent work in these matches and followed it up by winning from lVlcLauren
of Bowdoin at Longwood. Guild of Brown, however, proved his master in the third
round, ending Vermont's hope for the honors of the tournament.
Dartmouth easily won in 1912, while a tournament with Massachusetts State
had to be called because of rain, the score at close of play standing Z-I in favor of
Vermont. Nothing of importance happened in 1913, lVlacFarland winning the college
ln Professor Freedman tennis found an ardent friend, with the result that more men
turned out and more matches were scheduled annually than ever before. While vic-
tories were lacking, valuable experience was obtained, which in time is bound to tell. ln
1914 tournaments were played with Massachusetts State, Union, and lVlcGill, all
resulting disaistrously for Vermont. ln 1915 We were defeated by lVlcGill, Fordham,
Union, Colgate, and Dartmouth. Vermont's tennis team in 1916 gave little evidence
of improvement over the previous season. A five days' trip was taken into New York
state, the results showing three matches lost and one tied.
The future of tennis at Vermont is in the hands of Professor Swift. No one
will work harder than will he for a winning team. The outlook is bright and there is
no reason why we should not look forward to the time, not far distant, when the tennis
of the Torreys, the Kirkpatricks, and the Lawrences will be repeated in the tennis of
the players who will be called upon to represent the Green and Gold.

S 015132 Zguulher Society o
The Boulder Society, the senior honorary society of the University of Vermont,
was founded in l905 by nine members of the class of l905. The charter members
consisted of one man from each fraternity and from the non-fraternity men. The
following were the original members: Thomas R. Barrett, Fred B. Wright, Lee H.
l-l. Hulett, Leslie I-l. Newton, Leon l-I. Sault, Harley W. Heath, Everett V. Perkins,
Vincent A. Bates, and,Richard T. Patterson.
During the first years of its existence the society had fewestablished functions. It
had charge of arrangements for smokers, Class Day exercises, and similar meetings.
Gradually as its standing in the college 'community grew, it originated and supervised
class scraps, supported the rules for Freshmen, and assumed many other legislative and
executive functions. The Society by all means justified its existence in that it signified
recognized leadership. New institutions such as the football banquet were suggested
and foundedg suggestions were made regarding the publication of the Cynicias a weekly
instead of a bi-weeklyg the scholastic standing ol: athletes was supervisedg the awarding
of Commencement honors wastalcen up. ,The activities of the society extended into every
field of the life of the college. Indeed there was much to do, for many opportunities
were presented, now that there was an organization to focus them to the advantage of
the student body: Of recent years the work of the Boulder Society has been of a more
established character. The old college institutions and customs are in its keepingg class
scraps and Freshman rules are under its supervision. With the formation of the Student
Union a new era has begun for Boulder. It has lost its semblance ofautocracy and
become the guiding hand in college affairs with the opening of this avenue to genuine
Boulder requires for membership men of character, of achievement, and of qualities
of leadership, men who have earned during their college course the trust and confidence
of both undergraduates and faculty. It represents the leadership and responsibility of
the Senior class, the highest ideals of the student body, and the best expression of under-
graduate life. Its ideal will be reached when it serves to unite the many elements of
university life for fullest development.

The past year has been a noteworthy one in the history of the Young lVIen's
Christian Association. The most far-reaching task undertaken has been that ,of raising
a budget to provide for a Graduate Secretary who would give his full time to developing
the Y. M. C. A. and making its work efficient. The Advisory Board and the Cabinet
felt that the time had come when Vermont should align herself with other colleges and
universities who were already employing such a secretary and so brought the matter
to the attention of the student body. The response from the men was particularly note-
worthy. Nearly three hundred men gave their active support to the project, and over
eleven hundred dollars was subscribed. This sum will make it possible for such a
secretary to be employed and it is expected that the man chosen will enter upon his
duties with the opening of the next college year. ,
Though the energies of the men have been largely devoted to the secretarial
campaign, the various departments have been well conducted. The Deputation Com-
mittee has furnished teams which have conducted services at Colchester, Shelburne,
Essex Center, Underhill and Jericho. A speaker has been supplied for the religious
service at the jail once each month. The Vermont Handbook issued in the fall just
before the opening of College proved a very acceptable book. Two University services
have been held during the year, addressed by President Fitch of Andover Theological
Seminary and Rev. Frazer Metzger of Randolph. Ten men are teaching classes in
city churches, seven men have been assisting at Wiiiooski in the classes for foreigners,
four are in Boy Scout work, four working at the Neighborhood House and several are
teaching classes on Sunday at the Home for Destitute Children. Bible study groups
have been organized and are working successfully in several fraternities. These groups
are using the book, "A Life at its Bestf' as a basis for discussion. The leader's group
is in charge of Dr. M. B. Ogle. A group for members of the Freshman class has
studied a book under the leadership of Dr. S. G. Barnes. The office maintained by
the Association has served the students in several ways.- The Employment Bureau has
secured about a hundred jobs for the forty men registered at the office during the fall
and winter. Several of these have been permanent positions. By co-operating with
business concerns a score of men have secured summer employment. Such a summary
must include an appreciation of the faithful and conscientious work of Dr. S. G. Barnes
who has acted as Religious Director of the Association.
Plans for next year include as large a delegation as possible at the Northheld
Students' Conference and aim at a strong, virile and effective branch of the Y. M. C. A.

lt was particularly appropriate that the Wig and Buskin Society chose "Twelfth
Night," one of Shakespeare's great comedies, for its annual Junior Week production,
last year being the three hundredth anniversary of his death. Previous to the presenta-
tion at the Strong Theater, Wednesday evening, May l7, the play was given at Enos-
burg Falls. Following the departure from the usual custom again this year, Wig and
Buskin was assisted by Masque and Sandal, the women's dramatic club.
The leading woman's role was taken by lVlabel Derway, '17, who gave a remark-
able performance and made a very appealing little Viola. She went easily through some
long and difficult scenes and made the perplexities of Viola's unusual situation seem very
real. Rachel Frank, '18, made a dignified and beautiful Olivia, playing especially
well in her scenes with Viola and Malvolio. The part of Maria, the pert serving-maid
was exceptionally well taken by Mabel Wilson, 'l6, who left nothing to be desired in
the way of vivacity and spirit.
Two of the great successes of the play were Leutze, '17, as Sir Toby Belch and
Baker, 'l8, as Sir Andrew Aguecheek. l..eutze in his acting succeeded admirably in
showing the real good breeding under Sir Toby's drunken buffoonery, and his portrayal
of the jovial knight's lapses from sobriety were exceptionally realistic. Q Baker entered
thoroughly into the part of chicken-hearted Sir Andrewj and his make-up was very
effective. Malvolio, played by Olzendam, 'l6, came in for more applause and laughter
than any other character. Coffeen, 'l7, as clownjmade the part his own, playing
with much spirit and agility, and shifting from the grave to gay with great skill. Durfee,
'17, as Fabian, made the most of his part, and added much to it by his clever stage
business. Friebus, ,l7, and Smith, 'l8, who played Antonio and the Duke Orsino
respectively, gave full value to their lines, Smith's voice showing to fine advantage in
his delivery of the Duke's part. Bean, '16, played Sebastian, Violais brother, with
clash and effect. i
The minor parts were 'taken as follows: Valentine, Chamberlin, 'l8g Curio and
Sailor, Manning, '18, Sea Captain, Tilley, 'l6g Sailor, Partch, 'I9g attendants on
Olivia, Miss Rose, 'l8, and Miss Purington, 'l9.

And it came to pass in the Spring of the year l9l6, that the Wig and Buskin
Society journeyed to Enosburg Falls for the express purpose of producing in that town
a Play. Now this particular theatrical triumph was popularly known as "Twelfth
Night." The cast included many notables. There was Roderick Olzendam, office-boy
emeritus of the Vermont Marble Company, and at present engaged in getting them out
of the trenches by Christmasg Rodney Smith, on whom Doc. Stone. would gamble the
last gram of that gold he won from the cow-puncher at Salt Lake Cityg Whiting Baker,
who is related to our Himminentn alumnus Vvheeler by marriageg and a host of others
who could qualify in the artistes, " Club. This distinguished gathering of notables
under the guiding wing of President George Eta Bean and Ray Skid Sanders, assisted
by property men Stanley Wilson and lilorace Powers, swoopecl down upon Enosburg,
which lay trembling at the shock.
The play was a great success! It Went off to the entire satisfaction of everybody
except the audience. The jokes ffor the play was full of sparkling humorl were very
amusing to a few old-timers who hadnlt heard them since boyhood. Like the Owl stunt,
the audience was in the dark. That is' one of the delightful features of this play as
enacted by that castg instead of the old hum-drum method which consists in having
everything cleared up at the end, the audience goes home wondering Cand are probably
wondering yetl' what it was all about.
After the play, the stage was besieged by numerous pretty girls with invitations to
go down to the Town l'lall 'for a dance. On all sides were heard numerous compliments
such as: "Didn,t George Bean look just like a girl?" "Oh! Didnlt you just love
Whiting Baker's legs!" "And Rod Smith was gorgeous in those whiskers!" "I think
lVlr. Leutze acted that drunken scene awfully well considering the fact that he doesn't
drink!" Etc., etc. Until one's head was fairly turned.
ln all, the classic presentation was a great triumphg the trip was a very enjoyable
diversiong and we all considered our time profitably spent. A

The standing of the University of Vermont Rifle Team in the Intercollegiate
Gallery Competition for the season of 1916 is, at the present time, in doubt. When
the season ended and the final standing was given out, Vermont's position was twelfth
in Class "Af The list of final scores showed that Vermont, instead of having the
twelfth from the highest score, had thirteenth. This would have placed her in the first
position in Class "B" and thereby entitled to the five bronze medals which the champion-
ship of this class offers. Captain l-loward has contested the award, but' no definite de-
cision has been reached by authorities of the Competition.
The hnal scores and standing for the 1917 season are not published yet. The
Vermont Team has made remarkable progress during the past season, the score of the
final match being 160 points greater than the score of the first match of the season.
A good team may naturallybe looked for next year, as only two men, Captain Stanley
and l-lowe, will be lost through graduation.. Sergeant McCormack has acted as coach
the past season and will probably continue in that capacity next year. l-le is an expert
rilleman and his ability as coach is shown by the progress made this season.
The 1917 Rifle Team is as follows:

The Student Union came into existence a year ago. It was established for the
main purpose of uniting the student body into an organization in which every male
student automatically became a member when he entered the University, .and through
this organization might be of greater service here. Since its establishment, every student
activity has come to be responsible to the Union. It is a forum Where any member
may freely express his views ion any subject relative to the interests of the University.
Among the more important topics considered during the past year have been the
establishment of varsity basketball, athletics, a publicity committee, the renovation of
the trophy room, the Hunt Bill and the New Athletic Field. This latterproject has
occupied its attention more than any other one thing, and is, in fact, a creation of the
Student Union. The organization has fully justified itsexistence and measured up to

The girls' mass meetings which were held every week during the early part of
1916 developed into the Vvomen Students' Association. The constitution which was
adopted in June was an expression of the desire on the part of the women for an organ-
ization to promote college spirit and to encourage interest in class and college activities.
The efforts of this organization have made possible a physical director for women.
A sub-freshman day for the girls from neighboring schools was also planned. It is'
hoped that such a day may become an established custom. The Association is fast
becoming a molding factor in University life. i

The moonlneams fall on Converse Hall,
The nalgecl stars gleam bright,
The sifting snow lies pale below
In the cola' and bluish light.
The lnlaclf pines sigh with an age-old cry,
The night-wind whispers low,
The campus lies 'neath the darlgling slfies
lflyhere the wheeling planets glow.
According to custom, Monday, May l, was set aside for the twenty-third annual
observance of l:ounder's Day. With the battalion parade and review on the drill grounds
at 8:30 o'clock in the morning the exercises of the day began. This ceremony was
followed by the Boulder exercises around the Boulder, the reception of the new members
by the old members of the Boulder Society and a short address by President Benton.
The exercises in the Gymnasium, were very simple and impressive. President
Benton presided and the Reverend G. W. Davenport of St. Paul's Church read the
scripture lesson and offered prayer. Nlusic was furnished by the College Choir. The
two undergraduate addresses were given by Horace Henry Powers, '17, and Raymond
Leonard Grismer, 'I6. Mr. Powers' address, "The New Democracy." traced the
development of Democracy up through the ages and emphasized the necessity of an
educated citizenship that U the ordinary layman may assume and honorably discharge
the duties which will inevitably fall upon all citizens of the new democracyf'
The subject of the address given by Mr. Grisrner was, "The True Spirit
of Americaf' l-le very forcefully made the point that, "The true spirit of America was
found in the meeting house of our early fathersf' "The conception of a people con-
trolled by a great moral impulse and directed by an unerring divine Providence, this
is the spirit of America, the desire for the greatest possible intellectual, social and moral
development under the providence of God." K
The oration of the day was given by Merton Covey Robbins, '98, of New York
City, who spoke on "Education for World Problems." The main thoughtrwas one of
expansion and participation of our country in international trade. "Upon the ability of
this country to develop out-looking men who can cope successfully with our great prob-
lems and our new opportunities depends the future of the nation."
Immediately' after the close of the exercises, the classes adjourned to the Lafayette
statue where the inter-class singing contest for the Lyman Cup was held. The class of
1916 with the new "Fight Song" won the cup for the third consecutive year, followed
in order by the junior, freshman and sophomore classes.
A reception for Mr. and Mrs. Robbins, the guests of the day, was given at the
Kappa Sigma I-louse in the afternoon. The day was brought to a close by the Julia
Spear Prize Reading in the Billings Library that evening.

Despite heavy rains and cold weather throughout nearly the entire Week, the
events of the 1917 Junior Week were very successful. The program was opened by
"Twelfth Night," staged by the Wig and Buskin Society at the Strong Theatre, on
Wednesday evening, May I7. Thursday evening witnessed one of the most successful
Junior,Proms of recent years. The decorations were elaborate and artisticg but to the
hundred couples attending, one of the most pleasing features of the evening was the
excellent music furnished by Zita's orchestra. Friday evening most of the fraternities
gave their annual Junior Week dances. Saturday afternoon, May 20, Vermont was
defeated in baseball, 5-3, by R. P. l.
The tennis matches which were scheduled on Wedliesday and Friday afternoons
with R. P. I. and Union had to be cancelled on account of Weather conditions. The
program of the week was brought to a close on Saturday evening by the boatride on

The 1918 Junior Week Was scheduled to occur May 23-26 but because of the
international crisis in which the country became involved and consequent call of some
of the men to the colors, most of the events were cancelled. The Junior Prom and
Fraternity Dances alone took place, the former on May 3, the latter at different dates
during the Week. Because of the circumstances under which it was held some of the
formalities of the Prom were omitted. By the announcement of the committee, cabs
and Howers were not the order of the evening.

The ll2th Commencement of the University was marked as one of the biggest
and most successful in the history of Vermont. Special reunions were held by the
classes of l856, of which all four living members were present, IS66, l876, l886,
l89l, l896, 1906, 1911, 1913 and 1915. About three hundred alumni were back
for the exercises as well as a large number of undergraduates who remained in the
This Commencement was one of especial significance, being the l25th anniversary
of the founding of the University of Vermont and the admission of Vermont as a state
of the Union. In recognition of this fact, an elaborate historical pageant was presented
depicting important events in the life of the University and the state and symbolizing
their development. This feature which was to have been staged on the campus was
somewhat marred by the fact that it had to be presented indoors because of unfavorable
weather. The departure of Company "C" to the border, several members of which
were to have participated in the production, necessitated the abandonment of two or
Each of the fraternities and classes presented one episode in the series which was
interpreted by Morris R. Wilcox, president of the senior class, reading from the Book
of Pageantry and embodying "The Spirit of the University." Miss Stiles, the vice-
president of the class, represented HThe Spirit of the Statef, and held a large book
of dates which she opened to show the time of the respective periods.
The portico of a grecian temple represented the heart of the University. Out of
this temple came the senior class bearing portraits of the Makers of the Past, bene-
factors and others who have been especially prominent in the life of the University.
Following in order were scenes showing the discovery of Lake Champlain by Samuel
Champlaing Ethan Allen and his Green Mountain Boys capturing Ticonderogag Ira

SIGMA NU STUNT
It was an audience packed to the doors that witnessed the 20th annual Kake Walk
on Thursday evening, February 22nd. "The Only Kalce Walk in New England"
fully measured up to all standards previously set and was pronounced by all who saw it
to be the best in years. The Briggs Cup and cake for the best stunt was awarded to
the Sigma Nu Fraternity for their stunt, "VJho's Who in the Hula." Kappa Sigma,
with "Isaiah 2:4" received honorable mention. The kalce for the best Kake Walking
couple was awarded to Friebus 'I'7 and Goldthwaite ,20. The Wright Cup, offered
for the most original feature in the "Peerade" was given to I-I. Shanley 'IS for his
"Fifi of Hawaii."
The "Peerade" followed the opening number by Sherman's Band which furnished
music during the evening and for the dancing that followed. It was a fine "Peerade"
in every respect with many features far too numerous to mention including "take-offs"
on matters ranging from local to national and international significance.
The main part of the program followed the "Peerade." Nine fraternities were
represented with nine extraordinarily goodstunts which were far above the usual standard.
The Commons Club headed the list with "The Ultimate Vision" in which Uncle Sam
was shown bringing the warring nations into friendly relations by putting them each
through his mysterious and complicated Peace Machine. Delta Psi came next with
"The Nlartian Ambassador" in which President Wilson has some unique experiences
when he visits the war god and his court, but finally gains his end in bringing peace
about through the support of the army and navy. The winning stunt, "Who's Who
in the Hula" was next presented by Sigma Nu. The scene was laid in a cabaret
with diners, orchestra and waiters complete. The patrons were entertained by the one
and only Chaplin, a ventriloquist and lastly by an entire hula chorus. Clever dialogue
and elaborate costuming had much to do with its success. "Censored," given by
Lambda Iota, was a clever "take-off" on some of the inside workings of the Burlington
Freak Press, plus a character sketch of Editor Southwick. Sigma Phi presented a
laughable skit "Gretna Greeni' whose plot was involved in a case of mistaken identity
on the part of a fair damsel who was being married in Vermontis Gretna Green,-s
Bellows Falls. "Tictacs" was the next number on the program, given by Phi Delta
Theta. It showed a well-drilled military company which executed several complicated
evolutions, the climax being reached in the transformation of a fort into a tableau with
symbolic figures. The Delta Mu stunt called "Modern Surgical Efforts Shot to H-H
represented a strange operation in which a negro was relieved of a real live chicken,
and his heart which swelled up and blew. to pieces, upon the appearance of the devil
an explosion occurred, sweeping doctors, patient and all into the region mentioned above.
The Alpha Tau Omegais ulivolution of Electricityl' was a mechanical creation showing
New York before and after the advent of electricity by means df an exquisitely designed
model of the metropolis' skyscraper district. Electrical development was further demon-
strated by three tableaux of Franklin and his kite, Marconi and his wireless, and Edison
and his model submarine. This part of the program was brought to a close by "Isaiah
2:4,' given by Kappa Sigma. The idea of this stunt was that the warring nations were
to be brought together in peace by the interference of the United States. A large sub-
marine, from which the Goddess of Liberty eventually appeared surrounded by American
flags, soldiers representing the armies of the nations now in the field and who appeared
on the scene to the music of their respective national airs were features of this produc-
Following the stunts came the Vvalkin' fo' de Kake in which twelve couples were
entered. T he success of this feature was due largely to the ruling that each fraternity
be represented by at least one couple. While the judges were reaching their decisions,
the College Quartette, composed of Swett, 'l7, Gallup, 'l8, Parker, ,I9, and Short, 'l 7
rendered several well received selections, and L. H. Wright, 'IS gave an excellent
exhibition with illuminated Indian clubs.
The judges were Rev. C. C. Adams, Dr. F. W. Sears, Professor Frederick
Tupper of Burlington, Hon. E. S. Brigham of St. Albans, and Hon. W. Redmond
of Newport. ,
A short order of dances completed the program. The annual college smoker was
held in the medical college during the early hours of the morning.
Svmuixers anh iganquets
May 16.-A unique idea in banquets was that of 1917. Each man, dressed in
old clothes, marched down to the Boston Lunch and enjoyed a "Hobo Dinnern at the
maximum price of fifty cents. lmpromptu speeches were made by everybody. This
was-the only class "banquet" held last year, all the classes donating the sum usually
spent for banquets to the athletic field project.
May 27.-A college smoker was held in the gymnasium for the purpose of en-
tertaining the men from the high schools and academies throughout the state who were
here for the interscholastic track meet held at Centennial Field. President Benton,
Dr. Burns, Professor Groat, Dr. Clark, Coach Robinson and Dr. Stone were the
speakers. A bonfire and sing was held on the back campus following the talks.
June 27.4The alumni breakfast was held at noon in the gymnasium with nearly
four hundred seated at the long tables. All of the classes holding commencement re-
unions were represented on the toast list. Ralph A. Stewart, ,93 of Boston was toast-
master. The medical alumni held their annual banquet at the Van Ness l-louse in the
evening. Dr. N. Jenne, '81, acted as toastmaster.
November 10.-An enthusiastic smoker was held in the medical college in prepara-
tion for the game with Norwich. Coach Leary, Dr. Burns, Dr. Lyman Allen, Dr.
Stone and Professor Tupper were among the speakers who increased enthusiasm for the
game of the following day. -Following the smoker the men marched down Pearl and
November 17.-The second football smoker was held preliminary to the game with
Middlebury. Prospects were discussed by several of the alumni, students and faculty
November 16.-The keynote of the big Football Banquet held at the Sherwood
Hotel was the need of a graduate manager, and that athletics are at a critical stage here
at Vermont. Over three hundred loyal Vermonters were present to hear the big list of
good speakers. I
February 17.-The first smoker of the new year washeld at the Medical College.
Kake Walk and Baseball plans were discussed. Several freshmen were called upon to
entertain with a few well-chosen stunts.
February 22.-The annual college smoker was held at the Medical College follow-
ing the Kake Walk.

QEunherse:QBIh JHEUII Game i
The only example of big league football ever dragged up to old Vermont was
witnessed-only by the participants,-on Oct. l4, anni Domini l9l6, when the Con-
verse Hell Dodgers decisively downed their ancient rivals, the Old Mill Braves, in the
most gorgeously excruciating turmoil of bone-crunching and blood-spilling contest ever
witnessed above hard earth. A good attendance and immense spirit was recorded,
there being I9 soles present including the players and referee-fnote-the referee
played the third halfl. The one sorrowful statement to be exercised is the deplorable
fact that the veteran institution known to ancient history, Cblistory 23, required VJ,
as the aforesaid Old Mill Braves, has and is about to become, degenerate and well
nye extinct, owing doubtless to the fact that the above mentioned Old Mill is used for
dormitory purposes only by the janitors and those hardy few who have demonstrated to
the board of Faculty that they can survive a flying leap in pajamas through eight smoke
and flame filled stories ofvenerable structure. Howsomever, the aforementioned foes,
made up of those who had passed the make-up in the abovesaid test, assimilating their
near brothers of the experiment farm and other out buildings, consummated a team of
blood curdling, raving, demonstrators of frenzied ferocity, which, under the maniacal
demon-like driving of Runnals '20, furnished the longest neck-stretching, tendon crack-
ing race ever handed up to the champion conglomeration of monitor distracting, plaster
ripping, banister sliding, fire extinguishing Dorm dwellers, of literary fame.
The above mentioned combat took place on that historic battlefield, the birthplace
of the pine forests of Vermont. It was the most intensely thrilling, ravishingly touching
encounter ever afforded for the amusement and delectification ofthe historic home-grown
bleachers, from the bloody beginning of the first quarter to the impressive end of the
fourth half. Valiantly did the Old Mill warriors strive against ultimate defeat, but
the whirlwind tactics of the Dormitory Dodgers were unresistible, and even the
editorial support offered by the meritorious Cynic, in the effort to stem the tide, was
unable to make a dent in the armor plated team work of the victors. The feature of
the game was the miraculous multiple passing of the peerless backiield of the champions,
in which the pig skin passed through the hands of the four backs before being hurled
high over the feet of the impetuous onslaughts of the unresistible line to the waiting
forwards. This formation completely confused and literally demolished the sturdy de-
fense of the oppositors, resulting in the most successful scoring machine ever evolved
in the domain of our glorious institution. The enormous score of the Dodgers is
credited as follows: three-fifths to the fawn-like footwork of the immortal half back and
captain, Shippey 'l7g one-fifth to the elusive end Raymond '20g and the remaining
eight-fifths to the sliver-like line piercing and team handling of the quarter back, Haw-
kins ll 7. The lone tally of the sufferers of glorious defeat was contributed by their
Hessian ally and quarter back, Wrink Smith ' l 9.
The field and remains of battle were suitably cared for by the Burlington Street
Department in co-operation with the Burlington Rendering Plant.
The Ctlullege bture
His brow was sad, his eye beneath
Flashed like a falcon from its sheath,
'Twas every student, rich and poor,
Waiting at the College Store.
He held his watch with trembling grip
He set his sturdy lower lip,
Our hero now was waxing sore,
Vlfhile waiting at the College Store.
The Chapel bell tolled half past ten,
He'd waited there since,-Cod lgnows w
"Thy manager shall answer for
His tardy entrance, College Store."
In characters that moclfed his Fate,
And stirred him to the darkest hate,
He grimly readg "Hours 8 to 4."
Thou base deceiver, College Store!
The sun did rise and set again,
But still no entrance could he gain,-
'Twas ever thus in days of yore.
Ufilt never open, College Store?
"I'll stay here, thenf' aloud he cried
"1'll sit here, 'til I get inside,
This wait has stung me to the core
My lnloocl he on you, College Store!"
Thus he spalfe in his dying breath,
He'd waited there 'til he'd starved to death!
He flied before thy battered door.
Our curse be on thee, College Store!
If you're fond of pure vexation-
And sweet procrastination-
You're just in the situation-
To visit the College Store.

Vermont was in the throes of final examinations. For two months the victims had
been feasted and fatted for the shambles. The period of inquisition had continued for
three days, and many a convalescent from spring fever was succumbing to nervous pros-
tration, when out of an apparently clear sky came the thunderbolt. ln the midst of war
and rumors of war, the grim actuality had become to the inhabitants of our little college
world an intangible something, easy to discuss but difficult to picture. Now,
with the United States on the brink of war, the idle conjectures of the past year were
about to be realized. The morning papers of June l9th bore news of startling significance
to the two military units of the Vermont National Guard, which were composed of
students at the University of Vermont, for to many this was the first intimation of
President Wilson's general order calling out the entire National Guard of the United
For the fifth time in history the University was called upon to send her young
men to the defense of their country, and never before did so large a number respond to
the call in so short a time. Under the efficient command of Captain John l... Cootey,
'l6, messages were dispatched to the Engineering Camp at Grand Isle, the Forestry
Camp at Underhill, and so expeditiously was the work of mobilization managed, that
although no enlisted men were notified of the order before 6:00 A. M., Company C
was the first company in the regiment to go into camp. For the first time since the War
of lSl2, troops were quartered in the University buildings, when the gymnasium annex
was utilized as a barracks by Company M of' Burlington. The arrival of Company G
of Winooski increased the size of the camp on the back campus to that of a small army.
The order to mobilize was received on Sunday night, June 18g the company was
assembled on Monday, and on Wednesday the three companies, with their ranks swelled
by the addition of numerous recruits, marched to the state reservation at Fort Ethan
Allen, where a camp was speedily laid out and tents pitched. Immediately a hard
daily program of drill and instruction was instituted, one which was well calculated to
harden the men physically and fit them for duty on the Mexican border, though at the
time few believed that any of the boys would reach the Rio Grande. The regiment
was mustered into United States service on June 25, and on the 27th, at 5 100 P. M.,
in a drizzling rain, the fourth and last train, bearing Companies A, B, C, and D left

Fort Ethan Allen bound for Eagle Pass, Texas. Vermont, though one of the states
most distant from the border, was one of the first to answer the President's call by
rendering efficient service there.
The journey to the border consumed five never to be forgotten days and nights.
At Denison, Texas, the first Texas sunshine was encountered, also the first Texas
lemonade, which was served by the hospitable townspeople in true Southern style. At
three o'clock in the afternoon, July Z, Company C reached Eagle Pass. After de-
training work was begun on the new camp which was situated outside of the town beside
the railway. The hot Texas sun was making everything sizzle, but it seemed as if the
most scorching rays were concentrated upon the Vermont camp, where everyone was
nearly prostrated with the heat until after sunset, when the work of pitching tents went
forward more rapidly. At about seven o'clock Cooks Blake and Quinn announced
that supper was about to be servedl and it was at that precise instant that the climatic
conditions became right for a Texas sandstorm. The boys went to bed on the ground
with their clothes on, the same Woolen olive-drab uniform which was none too clean
after a week's drill at Fort Ethan Allen, tired and hungry, their clothes and equipment
full of sand, and prospects of a hard day's work in the broiling sun on the morrow.
Not altogether a cheerful outlook, in as much as the natives assured them that sandstorms
were of much more frequent occurrence than rain in that arid region.
Fortunately the rainy season was at hand. Cne or two of the drenching rains which
soon came put a stop to the sandstorms, and taught the necessity of digging trenches
around the tents, for the ground is so hard that the rain never penetrates. Every rain
seemed to be a' veritable cloud burst, and the face of the country is much seamed with
arroyos which have been cut by the swirling torrents.
Three or four days were spent in getting the camp into shape, and then drill began
in earnest, The men were gradually growing accustomed to the terrific heat which kept
the thermometer at times as high as 1200 in the shade, but which was quite endurable
because of the slight breeze which blows almost continuously up the Rio Grande. The
humidity is low and this is a great aid to comfort in hot weather. Ice is manufactured
in Eagle Pass and was available in considerable quantity for the use of troops.
The country about Eagle Pass is virtually a desert except in the irrigated sections.
The only vegetation which grows wild are the clumps of sage brush and thorny cactus.
The ground is entirely innocent of grass, and the surface becomes so hot during the
middle of the day that it is distinctly uncomfortable, even through the soles of heavy
army shoes. There are no mountains but the monotonous level of the plains is some-
what relieved by irregular swells. Here and there a steep sided butte gives one the
opportunity to secure a vantage point in viewing the surrounding country. The Rio
Grande is a swift, narrow, and very muddy stream, which, owing to its color which
is very characteristic of western rivers, has a repulsive appearance. The basin of the
river is wide in most places, with precipitous banks rising to the level of the barren desert
on both sides. The stream is fordable in several places, but the international bridge at
Eagle Pass is the only bridge between Laredo and E1 Paso, a distance of seven hundred
Eagle Pass is a city of about six thousand population, of whom over one-half are
Mexicans and negroes. The city, which is of considerable importance as a port of
entry in less troublesome times, has a line post ofhce and federal building, two national
banks, a hotel which rivals any in Vermont outside of Burlington, two theatres, and
department stores which are as good as one would find anywhere in New England in
a town of its size. The Mexican quarter is of considerable interest because the streets
are typical of any Latin-American town. ln crossing the bridge to Piedras Negras,
a Mexicaii town just across the Rio Grande, one plunges in fifteen minutes from twentieth
century civilization to that of the sixteenth, a feat possible in few places except on the
The Vermont camp was just getting into shape for comfort, and the men were
gradually becoming equipped with the conveniences of the soldier, such as ample shower
baths and laundry facilities, battalion exchanges, mess tables, benches, etc., when the
First Battalion, on July I6, was ordered to relieve regular army troops on outpost at
the large ranches in the Eagle Pass lVlilitary District. Company A was assigned to
Lehman's Ranch, Company B to Blockefsg Company C was divided equally between
Indio and Windmill Ranches, and Company D sent to Elm Creek Bridge. Indio

The Rio i
Indio, is eighteen miles farther south. The trip from Eagle Pass was made in Packard
army trucks, the modern method of moving bodies of soldiers in such a desolate region
as that south-east of Camp Shafter.
Indio Ranch contains about two hundred and sixty thousand acres of semi-arid
desert, an area about one-fourth the size of the state of Vermont. One thousand acres
are rendered fertile by irrigation from the Rio Grande, on which the ranch borders for
forty-five miles. On the entire ranch are kept nearly eighteen thousand cattle, eleven
hundred mules, and enough horses to provide mounts for the ranch employees. The
whole is a splendid example of the dry farming of the south-west. At Indio there is
a considerable settlement, consisting of the main ranch-house, store, barn, and houses
for employees, who number about one hundred and fifty, most of them Mexicans. Six-
teen large concrete silos, each twenty feet in diameter and sixty feet high, hold the crop
of kaffir corn and Soudan grass which is used to fatten the steers after the round-up
from the range. A schoolhouse was 'erected by the owners for the purpose of educating
the ranch children, but as this is not in use during the summer it became the very com-
fortable quarters of the boys who remained at Indio under Captain Cootey, '16, and
Lieutenant Burrage, 'l7. The other half of the company which garrisoned Windmill
under Lieutenant Hayden, 'l7, for want of other shelter slept in tents in real army
style, thus avoiding the enervating and effeminate luxuries of civilization.
The month on the ranch was probably the most pleasant month of the entire sum-
mer. Long hikes to places of interest such as the swimming hole, the fossils, patrols
along the Rio which was less than a mile distant, and trips to a deserted ranch four
miles up the river occupied the leisure time of everyone. ' Many were the surreptitious
dips enjoyed in the Rio Grande, an offense against orders punishable by military court
martial. Then there was the old fashioned game of quoits, bucking the pole, wrestling,
and the letters and reading matter from home. Small game was plentiful, consisting
for the most part of birds and jack-rabbits. At Xvindmill venison was a welcome
addition to the somewhat monotonous menu issued by the cornmissary. Nimrods armed
with .22 calibre range rifles scoured the country for miles and brought back very won-
derful stories in lieu of full game bags. Life on the ranches was not all play, however.
A guard of eight men and two noncoms. was informally mounted at six o'clock every
night. This duty with the morning reveille and a little fancy drilling that was practiced
just to keep in good form, were the only military duties performed. At both Windmill
and Indio there were cavalry detachments of about ten men each, detailed from Troop H,
14th U. S. Cavalry for night patrolling along the river. During its association with
the regulars, Company C came to know the army as no amount of college instruction
could ever picture it. On August I5, the company was relieved by a company from
the Second Kansas, returning to Camp Shafter in the same trucks which brought the
relief. E A
After their return to Eagle Pass the company was given an excessive amount of
fatigue work on the new camp, which, added to the required drill, made long, hard
days. The streets were leveled by filling in several arroyos, pyramidal tents were sub-
stituted for the old conicals, and the new Y. M. C. A. with its small library of books
and periodicals, its victrola and piano, the increased facilities for writing letters, and
last, but not least, the cheerful word and ready help of the secretary, Mr. Brown of
Burlington, all contributed to the comfort of the men and the general improvement of
the camp social life. Each Saturday the troops in Eagle Pass took ia hike of twelve
to eighteen miles in heavy marching order, each man carrying pack and equipment weigh-
ing from forty to fifty pounds. The Vermonters were by this time so well acclimated that
the pace they set on these hikes won them fame as a marching regiment and made the
regulars look to their laurels. Every day a Held problem was worked out, involving
the attack or defense of some position. ln this way the officers and men received much
valuable training, as the practical work was supplemented by lectures by officers from
the Third and Thirtieth U. S. lnfantries. '
On the nightiof August l7th the First Vermont experienced one of its most dis-
agreeable hardships. Eagle Pass was swept by the same hurricane which wrecked the
cruiser Memphis and passed over the entire South. The high wind and driving rain
wrought much damage in and about Camp Shafter levelling nearly half the tentage and
injuring quantities of stores and equipment. By good fortune Company C did not suffer
the loss of a single tent.
Guarding the international bridge, building pontoons and all the other accomplish-
ments of a soldier's life were very interesting and even enjoyable during vacation, but
with the approach of the new college year the boys of Company C began to consider
ways and means of returning to their studies. The promised war had not materialized,
General Funston had recommended that the National Guard be sent home, and really
there seemed to be no compelling reason for keeping troops on the border. So in ac-
cordance with the order of the War Department that college men be mustered out on
September lst, most of the boys made applications to be mustered out or discharged as
the authorities saw fit. Hardly were these applications presented, when the order was
issued suspending discharges until further notice. This order did not apply to units
recognized by the War Department as college organizations, so, thanks to the activity

Skirmish Drill A On the Hike
of President Benton, the facts were laid before the Secretary of War in time to secure
the desired recognition, and procure the return of the students in Company C and the
Hospital Corps exactly one week before the return of the entire regiment.
The boys left Eagle Pass on the night of September 15th. Five days later they
arrived at Fort Ethan Allen, where they were given honorable discharges signed by
Colonel Dickman on September 22nd. The return route lay through New Orleans,
Louisianag Mobile, Alabamag Atlanta, Georgia, Lynchburg, Virginiag Washiiigton,
D. C.g Philadelphiag New Yorkg New Haven, Connecticutg and White River Junction,
Vermont. Lieutenant Burrage was in command, and great freedom was allowed the
men in order that they might see as much as possible of the interesting cities on the re-
turn. Stops were made at San Antonio, Texas, where the men enjoyed a visit to the
historic Alamo, a spot made hallowed by the blood of such men as Crockett and Bowieg
at Washington, where an hour and a half was allowed them to see the Nationls capital
by night, and at New York, in which seven hours were spent in viewing the sights of
the great metropolis.
The trip to the border carried the company through twenty-three of the forty-eight
states, and over live or six thousand miles of travel. ln closing it is only fair to
state that the military record of Company C was of the finest. Not a man was sent
to the guard-house under arrest, a boast which no other company of the regiment can
make. The health of the company was also excellent, the sickness being entirely due
to slight disorders of the digestion, and a few cases of infection caused by cactus thorns.
To the University's credit it is well to remember that when the call came to service at
the Mexican border, the only college in the entire country which sent two units fully
equipped for duty was the University of Vermont. Carry this news to Harvard, Yale,
and Columbia, to say nothing of the institutions of the West which number their students

Jfirst Eermnnt atiunat Quart:
Like a bursting shell came the call to arms on that sunny morning of June l9th so
early that not even the most worried student of medicine had begun preparing for the
day's examinations. Before 7 A. M. those who were already enrolled in the Hospital
Corps had been ordered to report at once and had gleefully and without any regrets
closed their books. Others too, finding study impossible, wandered about in groups
excitedly deciding the fate of Mexico. The college seemed upside down with the
rumors,that were afloat. Early that morning, the mobilization in the Hospital Corps
rooms on Bank Street began, and continued during the day, equipment being issued, and
blanket rolls being made up. By 3 P. M. the Organization was brought up to full
war strength by the enlistments of Pike, Johnson, lVlcl..eod, Cane, and Abair. Qthers
were applying in vain for admission. Oh, the wonder of those days as the would-be
heroes paraded up and down Church Street all too eager to answer the questions of the
civilians, or blissfully playing ball, thinking in the meantime of the deadly examinations
up on the hill. I-low theyiwondered at the newly assumed military carriage of their
little commander. How they wished they might be out in the field, cooking over a
camp-fire instead of "ordering up" at the "Boston" Time passed quickly with the
drilling, packing up, and reading of news from the front. ,
On Wednesday came the news that on the morrow the regiment was to be mobilized
at Camp Governor Gates at Fort Ethan Allen. Long before Church Street 'Was awake,
the trucks were loaded and with a last look at the old quarters, with a question in their
minds, the corps marched out to "do their bit." That first day in a camp was one that
will long be remembered by all concerned. The lirst tent up was pitched by the Corps
and the last tent, too, for Captain Clark had a new alignment and had half a dozen
tents repitched at least twice a day.
The Hospital tents were at once prepared and by night everything was ready for
the accommodation of the sick and weary. At retreat that night the meaning of the
work "detail" was made known. Two men with a sergeant were detailed for hospital
work for the coming twenty-four hours, two men were appointed to help "Doc" Johnson
keep the dishes and kettles clean, and one manwas detailed to clean and set out the
Corps' apportionment of lanterns. '
SICK CALL.-What recollections are called up by those two words! With the
last note of the bugle, from the head of every company street came a small group with
a non-com. in charge. The halt, the lame, and the blind were all there. Stationed at
the front of the tent were two of the commissioned officers, both graduate lVl.D.,s, who
quickly questioned and examined the sick as they were called up by the clerk. With
a few words as to the drugs or treatment required, the patients were turned over to the
sergeant and two men on detail. "Duty" or "quarters" was called out as each man
passed on back. Simple words yet weighty, for "duty" meant work and drill, while
"quarters" meant "bunk fatigue." Stomach aches, blistered feet, corns, and sunburns were
the chief complaints, Tinct. of Iodine and c.c. pills were the cure-alls. ln a short time
the hospital routine was established, and during the months to come, it varied but little.
WRITING HOME.-Each day commencing with reveille at 5 :30 A. M, and end-
ing with taps at l0:30 P. M. seemed an age in itself as the men awaited the Word from
Washington that would mean good-bye to home and friends. The camp seemed stirred
with a feverish excitementg rookies were constantly arriving, and coming up for medical
inspection. Rumors were current that something was due to happen soon. In the after-
noon whole companies were drawn up, and the oath of allegiance to the Federal Govern-
ment administered, thus making United States soldiers out of 'State troops.
At 2 A. Nl. on Monday, June 26th, orders to entrain at once were received at
headquarters, but before entrainment was possible it was necessary that a thorough
physical examination be given each man. For twenty-four hours, these examinations were
pushed without cessation until finally the physically unfit were eliminated. Thoughts
of that day call up the faces of many men who wept when they received the slip
"Unfit for active serviceng of other men like Jim Kelly who shed a half score of years
to go with the boysg and, sad to relate, of far fewer men who conjured up many
ailments to escape service.
Words cannot picture that last day in campg the crowds of sightseers that came
and went unceasingly, the seeming confusion of the hurried preparations for the departure,
the falling tents, the sad scenes of farewell. Nor can the babel of sounds be imagined:
the honk of the motor trucks, the cheering of delegations for their home boys, the sharp
commands, and the Weeping. As night fell, the whole camp was alight with burning
piles of rubbish and mess shacks, the air was filled with singing and hnal good-byes, until
finally the camp slept.
At last, with many a stop and start, the first troop-train carrying the Hospital
Corps started on its southern journey, with its destination then unknown. Those were
days of thrills as papers, eagerly scanned announced: "War is but a matter of hours."
Hlrunston prays for more troopsf' What though one could not sleep en route, what
though being clean was but a memory and by no chance a possibilityg what though
dinner was but a corn-willy sandwich, were not the words "Good-bye, boys, good
luck," and "God keep you," music enough to cause everything else to be forgotten?
As the troop-trains rolled farther west and began working south, the western and southern
hospitality became manifest. Receptions were given the men at every long stop and re-
freshments were served. Dennison and Waco will long be associated in the minds of
the men with pleasant memories. On Sunday, the Corps awoke in the great desert wilds
of southern Texas.
V EAGLE PASS.--Eagles there were none, but buzzards aplenty ranging from the
feathered to the whiskered species who overcharged for everything from a watermelon
to smuggled lace. Situated on the banks of the Rio Grande opposite the dirty rambling
Mexican city of Piedras Negras, Eagle Pass seemingly had but little excuse for her
six thousand of population. No trains had crossed the lnternational bridge for months.
Business was at a standstill until twelve thousand khaki men dropped on the place as
if from the sky. The country about Eagle Pass was naught but a flat rolling desert
for nine months in a year. Along the river and its tributaries, vegetation grew rank
and thick. There wild-cats, deer, wild pigs, and ,beasts and birds of all descriptions
could be found. Irrigation showed that it could make wonderful farms out of the
desert but so, too, might it in h-.
With glad hearts, the men tumbled from the stifling cars into the blinding glaze
of the noonday sun on that Sunday, and marched through ,choking clouds of dust to
the camp site already piped for water. Two or three regulars, a half dozen Mexican
children with their flea bitten dogs were the only signs of life. The whole world seemed
to be taking its siesta. ln groups the men hurried to the top of a small hill and looked
over into Nlexico. No one can tell what dreams of lighting and bloodshed passed
through their minds as they gazed into the South. The future might hold much in store.
Then evil days came upon the Hospital Corps, for with the change in climate and
water, there was much mild sickness in the camp. There were hours of work to be
spent in building and rebuilding incinerators to meet the fancy of every officer from
top-sergeant to commanding general. Too often were the men bitten by hookworm or
overcome with sleeping sickness when the call came to help in moving the hospital or
putting up the fly for the cook-tent. For a few days the heat seemed almost unbearableg
H00-1150 was common enough. During the day, every moving creature stirred up
great clouds of dust, while regularly with the last note of retreat the Evil One himself
blew up a sand storm to add to the joys of life. For the first month the beds were of
baked clay, hard and durable enough, it is true, yet quite unlike the big four-poster back
home. Only the cool bracing nights made life endurable for the woolen clad boys from
The Hospital Corps soon became the only distinctive thing in the First Vermont
lnfantry for, by orders from the War Department, the organization was changed to the
Attached Sanitary troops, attached to the First Vermont Infantry. With two lieutenants,
a captain, and al real major all to themselves, it is hardly to be wondered at that a
consciousness of superiority was felt by the Corps. In a few days the medical preparations
for army camp life were well under way. lncinerators and baths were constructed and
camp sanitation was planned for and suitably directed. Finally like lambs led to the
slaughter were the men brought up for the anti-typhoid and small-pox prophylaxis. By
way of celebrating the Fourth of July, the 2nd battalion was herded up to the hospital
for the first anti-typhoid innoculation. Poor little soldiers! It was one thing to enlist
and die fighting for their country and quite another thing to be murdered with a needle.
The day being well over 1200 and the sight of the shambles most terrible, three or
four men at a time stretched out, pale and wan, became a common sight. However,
with a blarney-tongued advance agent outside the majority of each company was induced
into the hospital and 'istuckf' In civil life, the symptoms following anti-typhoid in-
noculation are supposed to warrant light work at least. ln army circles, guard duty
or ditch digging are prescribed. Within the next week, the whole regiment received
the first innoculation and consequent sore arms. At regular intervals of ten days the
companies were brought around again by their company commanders for the second and
third treatments. Soon the small-pox vaccinations were started and the third year medical
students came to the fore. This vaccination caused a little more trouble as sore arms
almost invariably resulted and temperatures were quite common accompanying the re-
Although the work of the Attached Sanitary Troops while in camp is supposed
to consist of simple dispensary and medical work, it soon appeared advisable to remove
the sicker patients to the hospital tent where their evident wretchedness no longer impaired
the morale of their fellows. From the hospital tent all men judged seriously sick were
to be removed to the new four hundred-bed base hospital at Fort Duncan, two miles away.
Those not seriously sick were kept in the camp hospital for a few daysg then returned to
their own tents, marked 'iquartersf' The weeks following the small-pox vaccinations
were rather strenuous for the nmedicsf' Everyone vaccinated had a sore arm to be
dressed three or four times a week, while a lesser number of men were alarmingly sick
for a day or two. Along about sundown, reports would begin coming in, "Private
---- company --i is very sick," and soon the hospitalis four beds would be
filled again with fever patients. Weeks of this work soon made the hospital detail less
eagerly sought after by the ambitious students of medicine, and more of a routine duty,
to be avoided if possible.
The hospital, lantern, and cook details being selected for the day, the remainder
of the Corps was supposedly at the call of the duty sergeant for drill or work. During
the first few weeks in camp, before the cold blooded Vermonters had become acclimated,
and before the rainy season had set in, all drilling was done early in the morning or
after retreat from six to eight in the evening. At this time, the members of the Hospital
Corps not on duty or detail drilled daily under the command of Sergeants Wright, Goff,
or McDonough. 'The tramp, tramp, tramp back and forth in clouds of dust with the
blazing sun over head was far from being the most pleasing phase of camp life. After
four weeks of drill, orders from headquarters detaching five men from the Corps to com-
panies on outpost duty and requiring two men to be detailed every day to "trail" each
battalion, resulted in a cessation of drill. Thereafter, two men were detailed each
evening to accompany the various battalions for the ensuing day. The duties incumbent
upon those thus designated were far from wearisome, being simply to revive those falling
out from exhaustion or touched by the sun, aromatic spirits of ammonia being used with-
out stint. Should it seem advisable, the men were loaded into combat wagons and
ordered back to camp. With a little authority by reason of the position, and nothing
to do except to keep cool while the others drilled and perspired, the "pill-rollersf' were
said to have a usnapf' On the long Saturday hikes the whole Hospital Corps, except
'the details with each battalion, brought up the rear, accompanied by the ambulance so
that as the men fell out and were treated by those trailing that battalion, they either
joined their companies again or were picked up by the ambulance. Malingering was
early discouraged by giving out and out quitters ten days in the guardhouse and all the
special work-details possible. Also company and regimental pride soon did away with
most of the "faking" as a company contributing several men to the ambulance became
the joke of the regiment, while the Kansans unmercifully jeered the Vermonters who fell
by the wayside. The Vermont regiment earned a most enviable record, in that they lost
fewer men on these hikes than any other regiment in the brigade. Company C easily
led in the upbuilding of this record as it lost no men throughout the entire summer on the
hikes about Eagle Pass, this being due probably to the fact that clean living and tem-
perance in eating and above all in drinking were absolutely necessary to good endurance.
This fact the college men could realize and they acted accordingly, while the less dis-
ciplined minds in the regiment learned only by experience.
The relations existing between the Corps and the rest of the regiment were excel-
lent. As is always the case, a few men in each company professed great contempt for
the bunch who "treated a stomach-ache withan eye-wash." Similarly the men of the
Corps showed but little consideration for certain men in each company who had earned
the reputation of looking for "quarters," a double dose of castor oil being the usual
treatment for such cases. With the regiment at large, members became quite intimate.
Friendships sprang up between the "medics" and their patients which will never be
forgotten. Even though the boys did not know much more about medicine than the
sick, the willingness to help and the little help given proved sufficient in most cases.
The Corps, while not a distinct college unit like Company C, was made up largely
of medical students because of the efforts of Captain Clark in years past to better the
personnel of the organization. Cnly praise can be given to that gentleman who, with a
heart and ambitions for his corps great enough for a man twice his size, with tears in
his eyes was finally compelled to see his boys, his students, go south without him. Major
Hagan from Pittsford commanded the Hospital Corps while on the border, and soon
won such a place in the hearts of the men that his memory and influence will live forever.
With Captain Edmunds, Lieutenant Mitchell and Taylor, he made the men feel that
they were not merely superior officers but, better yet, were actual friends and true
comrades. With this spirit of comradeship evidenced on the part of the commissioned
officers for the men, any distinction between college men and town men could not
possibly exist. From top-sergeant Grant to ambulance-driver Meyers, the town men
met the boys from the hill and at last could say with Jim Kelly, "Those college fellows
are a pretty good bunch after all, and make as good friends as youlll meet anywhere."
SEPTEMBER I6.-Homeward bound, the longed for, the hoped for, the subject
of many a reverie out under the stars in the quiet of the clesertg yet many a heart felt
a tug as the puffing engine swept the coaches out of sight of the twinkling lights of
Eagle Pass and the goodbye cheers of those remaining were heard. Assured of entering
college on time, the dread of losing a year of school vanished, and men became boys
again. Those were happy days, as, the worries and hardships forgotten, the happy
incidents of camp life were recalled. At last Uncle Sam had appreciated the fact that near-
ly a hundred loyal Vermonters had "done their bitf' and was sending them home to
prepare as oflicers against that greater day when their lives might be required of them.
The Purpose nf Qllullege life

The purpose of college life must be borne in mind when college students are under
discussion. With a sense of the responsibility resting upon it for culture and discipline,
the typical college seeks to reach every student as an individual. lts endeavor is to
lay broad and strong and deep the foundations of character for the erection of a suitable
superstructure of specialization and citizenship. To these ends it will strive for the
establishment of habits of industry, and thoroughness in the mastery of difficulties, and
persistency in resisting evil and shiftless inclinations.
If this general purpose is to be accomplished, the student body must not be too
large and unwieldy. Unfortunate indeed is the student who is so lost in a wilderness
of numbers that he is unable to find his way out into the immediate light of his teacher's
presence-sad his lot when there are too many of his kind gathered at one place to
guarantee him from his instructors the individual attention that is his crying need.
Thrice unfortunate the student in the midst of the crowd who is obliged to depend
upon his own unaided efforts in choosing his course and electing his studies without wise
suggestion from an experienced and interested elder. "Student freedom" is a eupho-
nious and fascinating expression that has become very popular in recent years. No
progressive twentieth-century educator would care to put upon the youthhood of our col-
leges the straight-jackets that were worn by the collegians of a century agone. We all
rejoice in the liberty which guarantees to the student in our day the right to think and
act for himself. It is barely possible, however, that We have overstepped ourselves in
concessions to our boasted undergraduate initiative. While we guarantee every student
the right to work out his own intellectual salvation, is it not better that his undeveloped
judgment should be directed, not repressed, by the compulsion of a mature personality?
The young man or woman fresh from the preparatory school comes to college with
exaggerated notions of his own rights and with little knowledge of his own needs. That
which he thinks he does not want may be the very thing he requires for his well-rounded
development. The college, properly conceived, is not a school of specialization, and the
student there does not know and need not know what his vocation in life is to be. The
true college seeks to prepare a student for a successful career by providing him with a
sub-structure of body, mind, and character that will enable him, in later years, to build
thereon any superstructure that his developed talents and mature wisdom may lead him
Certain peripatetic lyceum lecturers have been going about the country in recent
years and, declaiming from the platform, they have shouted that there never has been
and never can be such a thing as a symmetrical man or woman. "Born short" is the
expression on which these frenzied preachers ring the changes. That no one comes into
the world with the beginnings of a symmetrical personality is a truism as old as human
intelligence. The declaration cannot be relieved of its triteness even though, for the sake
of startling attractiveness, it be clothed in new rhetorical garb. It is admitted without
argument, even in the most promising cases, that childhood and youth never come to the
beginning of any educational period with an endowment of evenly balanced abilities.
The linguistic talent of one may be strong, while the mathematical gift is very weak.
The literary taste of another may be pronounced and the scientific bent scarcely discern-
ible. It is because of this recognized inequality of talents that our whole system of pre-
liminary education has its existence. The chief object of the elementary school, the
secondary school, and the college, in every case, is to fertilize the physical, intellectual
and moral waste places of the coming man.
To develop the growing youth by following lines of least resistance in each instance
is to invite into being an abnormal individuality-a grotesque monstrosity. Ir is univers-
ally recognized that one weak member of the body means a weakened efficiency for the
remaining members. It is equally true of the whole man. A puny, sickly body is in-
sufficient support for an alert mind. A weak mind is grant of license to a strong body
for evil deeds. Spiritually speaking, the same truth holds good. A vigorous intellect
cannot bring to fruition its conclusions unless reinforced by a developed will. A strong
will may send a weak intellect on many a fool's errand or push an unfinished moral
nature to the commission of crime. There are already too many lopsided people in the
land of the living.
With all the education possible it is doubtless true that a perfectly symmetrical
manhood or womanhood cannot be presented as the product. This fact, however, does
not relieve those charged with the responsibility of teaching from the obligation of earnest
endeavor to produce a uniform and well-balanced personality. Much of the failure
among men in later life is due to the fact that specialization has found unsteady footing
on uneven foundation stones. The superstructure of vocation totters to its early fall on
a groundwork firm at one point and fragile at others.
The solemn responsibility resting most heavily upon the college is to give to the
student that training which shall present him to the university, to the professional school,
or to society at the end of his course so well rounded in body, mind, 'and spirit that the
superstructure when completed will stand forever secure.

ln the experience of every traveller there come now and then occasions when the
scenes which it is his good fortune to witness are of such superlative nature that they
abide through his life as influences from which he continually draws inspiration and joy.
Such an experience is to me the vision of a sunrise which glorified the magnihcent mass
of Kinchinjunga, the mountain which, except for Mount Everest, is highest of those as
yet measured. At a little after two o'clock one April morning we were called to our
early lunch and before three We were mounted on sturdy little I-lamalayan ponies, each
with a Tibetan attendant, on our way through the silent streets of Darjeeling hoping
to reach the top of Tiger I-Iill before sunrise. We were already seven thousand feet
above the sea and though in Northern India, the air was cool and exhilarating. An
hour and a half we trotted up a more or less steep ascent over a very fair road.
At times our way led along narrow ridges from which deep, steep-sided valleys were
seen as darkly shadowed gashes on each side, reaching far down to unknown regions
below. Beyond, the shadowy outlines of hills and mountains, some towering high above
us, limited the vision.
Often the road wound through charming forests, quite unlike those seen in the more
southern part of India, the palms, tree ferns, bamboos and such trees being replaced by
others, unfamiliar and sometimes resplendent with gay flowers, but yet more like those
common at home.
It was too early to show certainly that the long desired clear day would come and
we were eager to know for we were told that a clear day at Darjeeling was not common
and yesterday it rained. If it were not bright today our efforts and the culmination of
a long journey were in vain. ,
To our great delight, as the dawn advanced, all indications grew more favorable.
The stars flashed from the dark sky as only when seen from high altitudes and the air
As daylight increased the strange, misty shapes in the distance grew more distinct,
but not too definite yet, lest our imaginings as to what was over there be hindered.
And what might not be over there among those tremendous masses of rock and
earth that stretched along the Tibetan frontier-that unknown, mysterious country!
The way grew steeper and as we rode forward and upward we finally reached
the base of a steep hillock and this was Tiger I-lill.
Leaving the ponies with their attendants we at once scrambled to the top. It was
now daylight, the day was fine for mountain scenery and we were up before the sun.
But it was coming-the glorious sun, for the horizon was already illumined. With
something of the reverence of sun worshippers we had at once on reaching the highest
point turned towards the east.
. Atlirst the early light showed only a billowy sea of cloud, swaying, rising, falling,
while below the more distant horizoniwas misty and indistinct, only vague mountain
masses appearing on every side, but as the dawn brightened these shadowy figures revealed
themselves as weird, terrible, huge forms, the mountain giants of the world.
Silently, intensely expectant we waited as 'for the opening of the heavens. The
early glow that at first slowly rose from the ocean of fog reached farther and ever
farther upwards until it suffused the whole eastern sky and the glow had become
effulgent. Then came the splendor of the risen sun. The daylight had appeared and
the darkness fled away.
Before the piercing beams of the risen sun the sea of fog rolled off and disappeared
and then before us in unhindered vision lay the roof of the world-the vast Himalayas.
One by one, or in small groups, the peaks came into view as if carved from the
Imperial in their stateliness these loftiest of earthys elevations stood before us, ex-
tending for miles and tens of miles on every side.
So vast, so angular, so rugged that words cannot describe them nor the sight of
them, but to one who has seen a sunrise on Tiger Hill, revealing the stupendous masses
of the Himalayas there has come an inspiration that all the passing years cannot lessen.
ln apparently' endless procession, peak crowding after peak, those Hfteen thousand
feet above the sea, these twenty and others twenty-five, and a few still higher, the tower-
ing summits bounded the horizon.
Everest, highest of mountains, was too far away, but Kinchinjunga, more than
twenty-eight thousand feet in altitude, was only thirty miles distant and was as distinct
as Mansfield from Burlington and nearly seven times as high.
ln the morning sun all the peaks were glistening and splendid in the whiteness of
eternal snow and for thousands of feet down their sides, but below seventeen thousand
feet the dark forests covered the slopes, except Where enormous precipices, too steep for
vegetation, thrust their bare sides thru the great forests.
For several hours we stood silent, reverent, overwhelmed by the spell of the un-
usual scene. I
Several hours, yes-but a lifetime.

The last quarter of the last century, allowing generous margin, is the period of the
Mediate University. It is the period intervening between the old university with its
traditional ideals of Culture and the Humanities and the world of ideas and the new
institution of the utilities, of industry and the world of fact. It is a period of pathetic
protest against the on-rushing tide of industrialismg of tenacious clinging to ideals while
silently surrendering to hard realitiesg of a gaze unalterably fixed upon the Eternal
verities, but with occasional side glances in the direction of immediate values. It was
a period not of conscious contest nor even of conscious protest against the demands of
Industrialism, rather it was characterized by a sublime faith in ideal values and a con-
stant effort to realize those values in the refractory elements which had found domicile
within its bounds. ,
The Mediate University refused to recognize any contest, it rejected all com-
promise, it was inspired by a buoyant optimism, it pursued unfalteringly its lofty purpose
of teaching its students to live the noble lifeg and yet its very foundations were being
swept away. Subject after subject was creeping into the curriculum, whose clear
purpose was to teach baldly how to make a living. This note of defiant optimism
conceals the inner contradiction. It becomes contagion and is reflected by advocates
of the utilities. The University gathers under its protecting wings a whole brood of
industrial subjects confidently expecting to grow upon these fledglings ideal pinions, and
until the last, even when submerged in a sea of industrialism it holds aloft its banner of
noble humanism and believes against all evidence in ultimate victory. This noble' self
deception is the hall mark of the Mediate University. It is reflected in the instruction,
the administration and in the relation to the public, and the resulting history of the period
is a curious coordination of eclectic incongruities which disclose their cloven feet beneath
the scant folds of the academic gown. It would be untrue to describe this inner con-
tradiction as an unconscious contest or even as a recognized incoherence. The advocates
of the utilities are vociferous in their praise of the humanistic ideal. They plead the
limitations of space and time-are not these too eternal verities? They would gladly
permit their students to roam the Elysian Fields of generous culture, but alas the dire
necessity! There is one universal chorus extolling the grandeur of the humanistic ideal
and the resulting illusion is favored by a luminous veneering of culture studies meagerly
covering the utilitarian curricula.
The psychology of the Mediate University offers an attractive field of investigation,
the object of the writer, is however, to cull out for the indulgent reader of the ARIEL
a few salient features of an institution which faced the stars but moved relentlessly
The period opens with the surrender of Greek as an entrance requirement and
the establishment of the Ph.B. degree. That is the first step in the facile decensus, and
there follow soon the agricultural college and military training, the engineering department,
the admission of young women, the chemical course, and the medical school, which fol-
lowed its separate orbit and was treated by the university as an Ishmaelite of the desert.
'lihese additions brought few changes, scarcely a score of additional students seemed to be
no serious invasion of the traditional course of instruction. The prevailing humanistic
ideals were not disturbed, there seemed to be no reason why the integrity of the classic
curriculum should not be preserved.
But the admission of young women to the university was the cause of considerable
embarrassment. ln a state which had stoutly maintained the principle of human equality
discrimination against woman students seemed fundamentally untenable. Then a fine
gallantry might seem to place an inconspicuous rural community amongst the more ad-
vanced states of the common sisterhood. Besides, economy of space and expense favored
the fuller utilization of the institution's equipment. But on the other hand the type of
university curriculum which demanded the capacity to appropriate universal truth cer-
tainly required that power of abstraction which was thought to be distinctive of the
masculine intellect. Could the confessedly concrete feminine mind grasp abstract truth
and become domesticated within the realm of Eternal Verities?
, Notwithstanding juvenile and senile exuberance agreed on the ascription of celestial
qualities to specific females and notwithstanding Athena notoriously personified intel-
ligence, still it was felt that the atmosphere ofthe world of abstract ideas would prove
inconveniently chilly to the supersensitive delicacy of the female constitution, especially
under the conditions of vestiture imposed by the Hellenic model. However, gallantry
won and into the chill world of ideas was introduced a modest heating apparatus.
The Mediate University had no theory of Education. It was entirely innocent of
educational psychology. But it had certain prepossessions which were the fixed stars
of its policy and its methods. It believed that there were certain universal truths of
philosophy, of politics, of history, of literature and of science: that these truths con-
stituted together a realm of ideas, a world of universal veritiesg that to explore this realm
was the life purpose of the scholarg that to dwell in that world was the privilege of the
man of culture and to open the door-way into this World was the province of education.
That must be done by means of knowledge, but education was not the imparting of
knowledge. Knowledge was the means but not the end. Entrance to this realm could
only be given by one who had penetrated himself within, but the teacher was only the
guide and not the master. This could be done best by one who had imbibed deeply
of the rarilied atmosphere of that world of ideas and whose elevated spirit brought
stimulus to the plodding student, but nevertheless inspiration could not replace laborious
effort. And as for the student, the Mediate University believed that there existed in
all men a varying capacity for universal truth and that all that was needed to awaken
this capacity was contact with the world of ideas. When once this contact had been
made it was believed that the surpassing charm of that measureless realm would operate
so powerfully that the embryonic student would be set inevitably upon the quest of eternal
truth. Individuals might falter and lose zest, they must be encouraged and supported.
Some would mistake the simulacrum for the substance. Some would be caught in the
clutch of circumstance. There would be a self operative elimination. iE.xpulsion and
regulative retardations would be unnecessaryg courses and schedules were convenient
accessories to the main purpose. They possessed no inherent merit. These educational
conceptions of the Mediate University determined its instruction and its policy. And
notwithstanding the imperfect realization of its ideals it clung persistently to them. It
was forced to make place for incongruous elements in its curriculum and to admit the
utilities into its departments, but to the last it sought to adjust these incongruities to its
ideals. It believed in teaching subjects rather than students. It endeavored to place the
student by some device in receptive relation to universal truth instead of dispensing
diluted portions thereof according to the digestive capacity of the student.
Now this lofty, non-utilitarian, idealistic conception of education could in the nature
of the case succeed only with the select few. Sluggish minds succumbed to the imposed
strenuosity. Although the conception rested upon the assumption of an inherent capacity
in all men to respond to the attraction and surrender themselves to the compelling power
of universal truth, yet in practice for the vast majority this capacity remained dormant.
The system of education of the lVlediate University fitted actually only the select. It
suffered consequently the stigma of being aristocratic. It incurred the fate of all distinctive
excellence in a society clamorous for equality. But in truth the successful operation of
the educational conceptions of the Mediate University depended upon one predetermining
condition, viz.: the receptive faith of the student. Xxfhen the student body began to
question the ideals of the University, when the utilitarian temper began to filter through
the intellectual atmosphere and parents and pupils pressed the cui bono question, then
the indispensable precondition of the eager pursuit of ideal truth began to fail. So the
history of the Mediate University is the story of a noble persistence in adhering to
educational ideals which were increasingly unrealizable.
This failure was reflected in the marking system. The old marking system based on
20 had been administered very generously. It was treated rather as a symbol than a stand-
ard. Self-elimination as a result of incapacity winnowed sufficiently the student ranks.
But when the students became affected by the subtle dubiety-of the value of the humani-
tarian studies an ominous hiatus appeared between requirement and achievement and the
instructor suffered vicariously for the delinquences of the instructed. A most ingenious
expedient was devised to preserve the presumed capacity for universal truth and still pro-
vide for the failure to respond to its solicitation. The literal system of grades was adopted
and it was made possible for the student unresponsive to the allurements of ideal verities to
remain complacently within the commodious region of C. The more serious found a resting
place within the broad bounds of bounteous B. Some rare spirits aspired to rise into
the astral region of A, more wandered desolately in the desert of D and still fewer,
to the excruciating anguish of the executive, were summarily executed in X. This, however,
was only a partial solution of the divergence created by the increase of utilitarian studies.
In order to reproduce the uniformity presumed in the universal aptitude for the eternal
verities a most happy solution presented itself in the revival of an antique custom. It
was decided to clothe all graduates of all courses and all departments and all instructors
likewise with the scholar's gown. This was a patent proclamation of proficiency. The
rents in the scholastic record were thus charitably covered and the productions which
formerly evinced attainment were prudently dissolved in the painful effort to preserve
the rhythm of an orderly procession.
A certain air of detachment, of a world apart, pervaded all functions of the Mediate
University and affected the bearing of the instructors. The pungent fragrance of stale
tobacco which accompanies so gratefully all student and faculty gatherings today was
then unknown. Wlien it was first discovered that a new member of the teaching staff
had ventured to smoke in private it seemed to some sufficient cause for instant removal.
It was finally tolerated when it was learned that the indulgence was in accord with
medical advice. '
The Chapel Services had the aspect of a solemn assemblage of the saints, which
was perhaps partially attributable to the early morning hour and to the prevailing tempera-
ture of the Chapel. But the seating of the faculty on a raised platform extending across
the Width of the chapel and facing -the congregation, the studied seriousness of expression,
the solemn conduct of the services, the distressing efforts of the meager male choir, together
with the air of doleful determination on the part of the student body, imparted to the
chapel service the suggestion of a remote if not altogether celestial sphere.
It was in order to relieve this remoteness probably that the students periodically
transported the lions couchant, which once guarded the entrance to the house on the corner
of Williams and College Streets, and placed them one on each side of the desk on the
raised platform. On such an occasion the chapel was unusually solemn and for the one
who conducted the services it was an experience'akin to that of Daniel in the lion's den.
Nevertheless the imperturbable calm of the leader and the deep soleinnity of the occasion
served only to emphasize the measureless distance which separated the world of eternal
verities from this mundane sphere. -
Many things disclosed this sense of remoteness from the region of aspiration. The
lake which added such a charm to the landscape was remote from the University.
Students seldom if ever sailed it. lts waters were reputed treacherous. It answered
readily the purpose of a distant vision, a gleam of truth from distant worlds. It had no
association with the Universityi It was peculiarly fitted to reflect that ideal world of
noble sentiment and fine feeling into which the teaching force was endeavoring to allure
the reluctant student and the song Champlain has become a beckoning symbol of a
spiritual relationship which has long ceased to exist.
The public aspect of the Mediate University culminated in the Commencement
exercises. These were formerly held in the Winooski Avenue Church whose classic
columns and choragic belfry made it a suitable place for the great annual function.
Afterwards the old Opera I-louse on Church Street was used. This proved very satis-
fying. The elegant appointments, the comfortable seating, the fine acoustics and the
aspect of space and coziness combined, together with the ample stage, appropriately
prefigured the advent of the four years resident of the world of ideas upon the stage of
common life. He came with his message. A half dozen representatives from the
graduating class who best had grasped the eternal verities in their quadrennial residence,
delivered each his message to eager parents and relatives and to an admiring audience
of people from the wide country, also to citizens and returning graduates all intent to
hear the teaching inculcated in that wondrous world of ideals mediated by one of their
own flesh and blood. And it must be admitted that those youthful messages were often
noble expressions of glimpses of profound truths and to the auditors seemed often authentic
evidence of inspiration. But there soon became evident a marked decline. The pro-
ductions became forced and stiltedg speakers were selected with difficulty and forced
upon the stage with authority. Their orations disclosed too plainly in form and substance
the instructor's guiding hand, continuous promptings helped on the halting speech and
the speaker hnished in a state of intellectual collapse. The approaching Commencement,
once the glory of golden college days, became the despair of faculty and students and
gave way finally to a sombre parade and a subsidized oration unrelated to the thought
and life of the University. Instead of an exhibition of the student's familiarity with that
World of Ideas, into which the college course was supposed to haveinducted him,
Commencement afforded the occasion for a disquisition by a stranger upon some fugitive
topic of the day. The fine flower of idealistic thought failed thus to come to bloom.
The President's levee, held in the Presidents house until the Billings library was
erected, fittingly closed this culminating period of disclosure of the Vast treasure stored
away in that realm of ideas. The sacred precincts of the university were then open to
the eager public. There was little display of dress or its lack.. The common people
in decent apparel brought their reverential devotion to the altar of fine thinking, of noble
learning, and went away heartened and fortified for life's struggles and vicissitudes.
But slowly the sacred precincts became deserted of reverential devotees. Their
sanctity had long since become profaned. Hallowed associations had become dissipated.
People still came from curiosity, to greet an acquaintance, plan a trip, exhibit a modish
robe, and hurried forth to aimless activities, and the benediction which once comforted
receptive souls remained unsaid. The lips of the founders remained sealed, a great
period of the university life was determining.
The Nlediate University was passing. Few marked the change. The self absorbed
industrialism heeded it not. But in retrospect one still recalls the Mediate University
radiant with a kind of supernal halo, enthroned upon the altitudes which lift their heads
toward the realm of eternal truth. Sic transit gloria universiiatis.

Thirty-eight years ago I was one of the seven editors of a college annual. This
was several years before the first ARIEL was either born or thought of. A comparison
between "The Index" published in 1879 and the last ARIEL may be of interest to
college students of this generation.
The last ARIEL weighed almost ten times as much,-not that it was heavy in the
sense of being dull, far from it, it contained approximately nine times as many words,-
the Bible, you will remember, tells us of those who believe that they may "be heard for
their much speakingng its pages numbered almost five times as many and their area was
fully six times as great,-and this despite the high cost of wood pulpg it displayedl
twenty-four times as many pictures,-and they were better pictures, for one reason be-
cause co-education was not in those early claysg it set forth the doings of seven times
as many people,-for we were but a handful then whereas U. V. M.,s quiver is rapidly
filling. In some respects, however, our modest little brochure of 96 pages quite out-
ranlced its more pretentious successors of today. We used to issue the books in November,
instead of May, and, instead of assessing a large class tax and incurring-at times-4
a deficit in addition, the book paid a profit to its editors, for l find in the account book
l kept during the college days the following entry: 'iDec. 29, l879. Received of
Index Board, share of profits fBI.50." The book sold at 40 cents a copy.
Several of the features of the modern form of annual are survivals of the earlier
type. The class lists were published in those days, but without data or embellishment.
John Smith wasiplain John Smith of Smithville, living at I3 N. C. His photograph, etc.,
etc., was not shown, his honors were not heaped blushingly upon him, he was neither
"damned with faint praise," treated with contumely, nor lauded as a prodigy. The fra-
ternity membership statements were shown, each preceded, as at present, with a cut, either
signihcant or, apparently, meaningless. The fraternity list was preceded by a group of
gruesome goblins or a saturnalia of sardonic skeletons. The word "fraternity" did not
exist in those days. They were "secret societies" with the emphasis on the word "secret"
Little or no stress was laid on fraternal relationships. Y. Nl. C. A. lists, literary
society enrollments-these organizations flourished in those days- the military organiza-
tion, athletic and musical activities, were set forth: and, finally, there were the usual
slams, directed impartially against members of the faculty and individuals in the student
Several features, once deemed important and seen in the earlier ARIELS as well
as in the Older "Indexes" concerning which I am writing, have now gone out of fashion,
as have "Mother 'Hubbardsn and "Merry Widow" hats. There was the opening
editorial, in which the faculty was told how to run the college. The students of today
can do this thirty times a year in the college weekly and do not have to condense their
wisdom in a single publication. Then there was the class statement. Each class set
forth its point of view in an editorial wayg the Seniors pessimistically wondering how
the institution could possibly survive their departureg the Juniors rejoicing that they were
beginning to come into their owng the Sophomores vainglorious as to their own merits
and scornful as to those of the Froshg and the newcomers timidly intimating that they
had arrived on the campus and expressing a hope that sometime they might amount to
something. Following each such pronunciamento appeared a cut, which was supposed to
epitomize the class and its situation in college. Furthermore, every college annual of
a generation ago must present an opening and closing cut, showing at the outset the
editorial' board at work and, at the outlet, the -same board completely used up by its
efforts. Our annual showed the seven editors loading a cannong the cannon balls were
lettered HBRAINSHQ the cartridge boxes were labeled "WIT" and "I-IUMORI'
We overdid it. Evidently we put too much mentality into our product and overloaded
the cannon for on the last page of the volume, the cannon is seen to be exploding and
the editors in fragments are being cast to the four winds, while from the center of the
flame and the smoke emerges the finished volume,
This was before the days of halftones. The only embellishments of a pictorial
kind were crude woodcuts and but few of them. The paper was somewhat better than
newspaper, but none too good. The supercalendared paper, the gilded edges, the golden
borders, the elaborate and costly covers that now are seen in every college annual, were
It was fun getting out a college annual in the "Seventies" It was not as great a
task as it is today. The editors ran much less risk of faculty censure because of the
grade of their college work. The boards were small--everybody "did his bitf' Who
shall say that these modest issues did not serve their day and generation as well as do
their glorified progeny? Q

Scraps of verse learned many years before have a most intrusive fashion of chanting
themselves in one's brain with a wearisome iteration. The most recent of these intruders
into my consciousness justifies its persistence by present-day happenings :-
"What constitutes a state?
Not high raised battlement or labored mound,
Thick wall or moated gateg
Not cities proud with spires and turrets crowned,
No: men, high-minded men,
Men who their duties know,
But know their rights and knowing, dare maintain,
- Prevent the long-aimed blow."
All this seems to me equally applicable to a university. Not that I underestimate
the value to a college of high-raised battlements, of spires and turrets, having known
the other thing all my days. My earliest academic life was passed within walls shattered
by a Southern earthquake of thirty years ago, whose after-shocks sent bits of plaster
falling about our distracted ears. My university time was spent among those grim ill-
assorted structures that made the Baltimore city-blocks of Johns Hopkins the ugliest in
all the world. And in this later day my spirit sometimes cries out against overbaked
or underdone class-rooms, so congested that sills, stools and skuttles serve as benches
and "Standing room onlyli' greets the late-comer. Yet my memories of 'all these days
are golden. ln those 'ruined halls of the far South lived and moved most sedately some
courtly high-thoughted gentlemen of the old school who taught us youngsters that
"manners makyth manng in those incongruous buildings of Johns Hopkins sat side by
side masters of those who know and eager learners listening to oracles: and amid the
carbonic acid gas of the Old Mill, generations of collegians have delighted in the
stimulating company of some remarkable figures whose names we men of Vermont shall
never willingly let die.
Memories of our elders crowd thick upon me now-for such twilight musings as
these derive their highest joy from the query, "Do you remember?" I am thinking only
of voices that are still. First he who sat at the head of the table-indeed, wherever he
sat would have been the table's head-our leader for forty years, dreamer of many
dreams for his beloved Vermont, dreams which often came true, cultured idealist with
no small alloy of practical Scotch caution and firmness, artist in thought and word,
grand master of the gentle art of living together. l recall two others, alike in their
dignity and their devotion to the best things of the past, "The good, the true and the
beautiful," yet how unlike in temperamentg the one suaviter in mode, infinitely sweet
and gentle in speech and manner, with a face so reverently beautiful that it seemed suited
to a saint's halo, very like that of Dante in his own memorial window, the other, foriiter
in rc, downright in word and action, yet marvelously mellow in his later time-the last
of the Romans. And there is the more recent memory of another, who dwelt in the Old
Mill itself and was its guardian spirit, whom I have called elsewhere fno more fitting
words come to me nowj "The tutelary genius of the hill, father-confessor of generations
of college boys, charming talker, whose humor and fancy cloaked his depth of thought,
sympathetic adviser and loyal friend." Some of you will remember much pleasant dis-
course in his study. Every! lively incident of his daily life, every passing fancy of his
teeming brain was so subtly wrought by him into a dramatic setting, that you not only
saw the thing but felt it too. ul do not meet in these later days such company over a
pipe." The significance of these lives is that they live on in all of us. There were
tones in their voices that are heard today in a thousand men. '
The story of the Oriental soldier brain-struck by the ceaseless movement of a
million feet passing King E.dward's bier which he was guarding in Westminster may
serve as an allegory of those of us who watch the coming and going of many generations
of college men. Faces, throngs of faces, unlined, clear-eyed, smooth-lipped, blurred
only by the indiscriminateness of youth, swarm by us with kinematographic speed: yet,
luckily, marked features stand out in the transit. l-lere a mouth, whose gay laughter
rings through twenty years-it was that laugh, some say, which made the man's fortune.
There, a hand-breadth of scholar's brow, worth to its slender possessor more than dol-
lars. And yonder a blue-grey eye whose friendly light will never again shine upon us
who loved it. Happily We older ones who watch and wait see some of these faces now
and then at class reunions, at alumni banquets, and, with a more sudden pleasure, up
and down through the world. One of them flashes forth from a Broadway crowd and
pauses, all agleam with recognition. The ten years since you saw it last have doubled,
in the hair-marring, bulk-making fashion that a decade has, the hand-breadth of brow
as well as its owner's once slim girth, but they have brought, you rejoice to hear, some
spiritual fullness as well. You look into another face, that of a Rhodes scholar, across
the tea-table of an Oxford college garden amid talk of tutors and schools and playing
fields and the river. Or in some corner of the Old World you confront of a sudden the
quizzical smile of one now delving among buried cities with the same zest as once among
his Greek roots at Vermont.
And what is the burden of all these meetings? First, they give and take of
reminiscence, and then something, far more profitable and not less delightful, a glimpse
of these men's visions. On the desk before me is a pamphlet, "writ in a manner which
is my aversion," berating the American college for holding up before the student
altruistic and impossible ideals. This intended reproach, if deserved, is our highest
praise, our greatest glory. The one thing that distinguishes the college man from his
fellows is that he is an idealist. He is not content with the dull facts of the mechanical
round, but is transfused with some great idea that makes the daily task a means to a
joyous end-one move in a splendid game. For my own part, l cannot distinguish a
current meter from a calorimeter, a centroid from a centipede, a cam from a dam, but
the golden talk of one of our engineer-graduates, teeming with tremendous prospects,
kept me gladly for an hour or more from my berth in the New York sleeper a month
or two ago. No Umoments of inertian in such inspiring company! And here is a letter
from the front of political strategy and crosslire, the trenches at Washingtoii, where my
correspondent, under the command of a great paper, has dug himself in and is watching
every move with eyes that were always open, during his college days, to the interplay of
great forces. He, too, is following the gleam. There is the annual greeting of another
fine fellow, deep in his business on the Pacific coast and drenched to the core of his
healthy nature with idealism. To my mind the one essential thing which a college
demands of its sons is that they keep faith with the youth that they spent within its walls
by looking beyond and above the affair of the moment. When a man dreams no more
dreams, then the spirit of his younger time is indeed dead within him. And the prosperity
symbolized by double chin and fat paunch is hardly a fair exchange for one's soul.
"Men, who their duties knowln The first thing demanded of us as college men
is that we know our duties. I have little patience with the comfortable doctrine, born
of the love of loitering along the primrose path, that the purpose of higher education is
to impart everything else than knowledge. Now knowledge may begin with the mere
acquisition of information, but fortunately for us it does not end there. Knowledge of
our duties implies something more-the ability to adapt our facts and ourselves both
to the stern facts of the life that we have chosen, tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor, and to
the ideals of the higher life of the spirit. That ability a college should impart. "But
know their rights, and knowing, dare maintain!" President Buckham once framed a
notable definition: "A gentleman is one who thinks more of other people's feelings than
his own rights and of other people's rights than his own feelings." That is a splendid
ideal for a gentleman, but there is another ideal less gentlemanly perhaps but not less
manly. "I have so lived," said a prominent statesman and man of affairs not very long
ago, "that, if occasion demand, I can look any man in the face and tell him to go to
the devil." Somewhat brutally put, but only the honest man, the honest college, the
honest nation, master of its own soul, can say that. So our, country spoke a few weeks
ago, to the infinite satisfaction of us all. So an American college spoke, when it refused
a gift of four millions, coupled with conditions fatal to free agency. Likewise the college
man must call his soul his own. I am speaking less of our social rights than of our rights
as intellectual beings. '
The greatest enemy to us as thinking men is not single but collective. In these days
of so-'called freedom of thought, one has little to fear from the personal aggressor, aiming
to dominate his judgment, but much from the mob-mind or the influence of the crowd.
It would be foolish to disparage the weight of public opinion, particularly in the present
crisis, when it has expressed itself so overwhelmingly on the side of the rightg it is always
undemocratic to override in behalf of our own selfish interests the declared will of the
majorityg but the college-bred man must refuse, as a thoughtful being, to be impeded by
the unprogressive many or to be stampeded by gusts of popular sentiment. And now let
me frankly admit that there are in our American colleges certain strongly entrenched
tendencies that militate against the development of powers of resistance to the mob-mind.
The college student of today is no eager young liberal seeking ever fresh worlds to
conquer, and rejoicing when "some new planet swims into his ken," but an intense
conservative, so thoroughly the creature of tradition that he swears ever by the old. It
is always "the dear old college," "the good old customs," even if they be things of but
yesterday. Regard for the prevailing taste of his crowd shows itself in his garb', his
speech, his habit of mind. "Everybody is doing it" sanctions every usage. You meet
on any other campus the same men and manners that you left on your own. In all this
there is a very real danger to self-development.
I have long been convinced that openness of mind is one of the best companions that
a man can carry with him throughout life. I do not mean by "openness of mind" the
mere desire of knowledge-the want to know of the man from Missouri-but the willing-
ness to prove all things, and then to hold fast to that which is good. And how rare is
that willingness and how fatally easy to be the same men that our fathers have been in
politics, and religion, to take the color of one's opinions from a community rather than
from convictions, to believe a thing to be true because it has appeared in book or paper
fjust as if print could not lie with all the tongues of men and the fallen angelsj,-in
short, to accept conclusions before all the evidence is in! It is like shouting with joy or
wailing with misery over the election of a candidate,-and then sitting down on the
morrow with changed and chastened minds to count the votes. To sever diplomatic rela-
tions with apathy, fanaticism, intolerance, superstition, ignorant obsessions-all those
forces that fight against open-mindeclness-such is the part of a college in the making of
man. Q , ,

In the death of James Buckham at his home in Melrose, Massachusetts, on the
ninth of January, l908, the world of letters suffered a distinct loss, and one of the
richest and rarest souls that the University of Vermont ever nurtured passed into the larger
Mr. Buckham was born on the twenty-sixth of November, l858, at Burlington,
Vermont, the son of President Matthew I-l. Buckham of the University of Vermont. He
was educated in the public schools of Burlington and in the University of Vermont, where
he was a member of the Sigma Phi fraternity and took his Bachelor of Arts degree in
l88l. I-le later studied at Johns Hopkins University and at Andover Theological
Seminary, Where he went with the intention of entering the ministry. This the failure of
his voice prevented him from doing. He was a member of the staff of the Burlington
Free Press for a number of years. While serving in this capacity he gained a widespread
reputation by a series of humorous writings which he contributed over the pseudonym of
Paul Pastnor. In i888 he gave up this position to engage in general literary work. He
was later a member of the staff of the Y0uth's Companion for several years. He married
lVlary Brigham, daughter of I-lon. and Mrs. Waldo Brigham of Hyde Park, Vermont.
I-le had two children: a daughter, who died at the age of two, and a son, Waldo.-
He was always of a quiet and reserved, yet affectionate and loyal, disposition. His
brothers adored him, as did the few friends whom he admitted to the inner shrine of his
heart. The editor of Zion,s Herald, to which he contributed much, said of him,
"He was arnost welcome, though not a very frequent, visitor to the editorial rooms.
Of medium height, slender in build, extremely retiring in manner, he stepped into the ofhce
noiselessly, left his copy half apologetically, and in a few moments quietly withdrew.
But the aroma and inspiration of his presence lingered, as if an angel had peered in,
smiled, and vanished. We shall never see his like again. We never knew but one
Mr. Buckham lived, during his Boston period, first in Atlantic, and later on the
outskirts of Melrose, where town and country meet. There it was that he took the walks
described in that delightful volume of nature studies, Ajicld with the Seasons. I-Ie was a
true lover and interpreter of natureg not merely a fair-Weather nature-lover, but one of
the chosen band of votaries who follow her loyally through all her varying moods and
changes. In his earlier years he often carried his gun on his shoulder as he roamed the
woodlands-and returned with empty game-bag. He saw nature not as a hunter, not as
a naturalist, but as a poet, a mystic. With Wordsworth he might say,
"To me the meanest flower that blows can give
Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tearsf,
ul wish,', he writes, "that it were possible for us to still know many things in nature
as the Indian knew them-mystically, feelingly, poetically, instead of scienifically and
Above all things else, Mr. Buckham was a poet born. In his essays he hides his
personality, but his poems lay bare the inmost recesses of -his heart. l-Ie was, especially
in his later years, Christoconcentric-he was absolutely permeated with the essence of
Christianity-yet his Christian life and thought were wholly sane, normal, and attractive,
with not a taint of cant or fanaticism. Hence his verse is human, comforting, inspirational.
"Out ofithe city, how blue the sky,
And dreamy-deep, like a maiden's eye!
Springs the grass with its vivid green:
Darts the wing with its April sheeng
Purls the brook o'er its pebbled bedg
Nods the Hower with its spotless head.
Out of the city, how the breeze
Lisps and laughs in the tossing trees,
Cools its wings in the crystal lake, ,
Borrows odors of brook and brake!
Out of the city's smoke and soot
l-lasten pilgrims on Wing and footg
Little birds from the parks and towers,
Lads and lasses to gather Howers.
Where's the heart that can answer nay
To the whispered 'Come' of an April day?
Oh, the longing of nature born '
To brush the dew and to breathe the morn,
To plunge the lips in some gliding brook,
Or lie, full length, in a sunny nook!
Happy he of the child-like heart,
Whom nature wins with her artless artg
Who fain of the woodland folk would be,
And speak the language of brook and tree."
This poem, standing at the beginning of James Buckham's Heart of Life, strikes
the keynote of the volume, and, to a certain extent, of all his work. l-le is a New
Englander to the core, and throughout his work we find ever the spirit of lake and
mountain, of field and woodland, from the time when he used to
"Hear the river-music blend with cow-bells from the hill
And the far-off clang and rumble of the log-frame in the mill"
until, in one of his later poems, he says, of a robin's egg,
"Only think of it!-love and song,
The passionate joy of the summer long,
Matins and vespers ah! how sweet,
A red breast flashing in happylight,
l..ife's full ecstasy and delight
Thrilling Cod's minstrel through and through-
All of them packed in this egg of bluef,
Only a New Englander could thus describe the baying of distant hounds on a cold
Now lost in the hollow, now loud on the hill,
Now sweeping, like faint chime of bells, through the pinesg
Now nearing, and veering, and sending a thrill
To the heart of the hunter, who watchful reclines,
With rifle held low, and with elbow in snow,
By the broken stone wall with its tangle of vines.
-'s as as as as
Oh hounds in full tongue! I-low the stale world grows young
With the primitive passion that throbs in the brute!
as vs -is as as
A blue winter sky, with the hounds in full cry-
Theyive found the wild pipes that the shepherd-god lost!"
What New Englander is free from memories of happy childhood afternoons spent
in the garret of an old farmlhouse, with its confusion of discarded furniture, clothing of
strange, antique design, and dried apples which, mingled, here and there, with large,
yellow ears of seed-corn, hung in strips from the rafters? l, for.one, can never read
Up 'Garret without thinking of such a place, hidden away among the foot-hills of the
White Mountains, where often, on a rainy summer afternoon, my sister and I would
play at "make believe." On such occasions I would don my great-grandfather's scarlet,
brass-buttoned coat and buckle on his shining sabre, while my sister powdered her hair
and put on some old colonial dress with its flaring hoop-skirt. Then we would enact
some old romance, sprinkled with perils and adventures without number, but always
ending with the pomp and ceremony of a military wedding "and they lived happily ever
What a World of fun we had,
You a lass, and I a lad,
ln the sweet, mysterious, dusk,
Redolent of mint and musk,
With the herbs strung overhead,
And the peppers stiff and red,
And, half hid by dangling corn,
Grandpa's flask and powder-horn!
Such a store of treasures rare
We were sure of finding there,
Hats and coats of pattern quaint:
Dark old paintings, blurred and faint:
Spinning-wheels, whose gossip-whir
Might have startled Aaron Burrg
lOld lace caps of saffron hueg
Dishes splashed with villas blue. i
as A4 as
All day long, in childish wise,
We spun out lifeis mysteries,
ln the fragrant spicy gloom
Of the dear old raftered room.
Oh, that life, in very truth,
Were but sweet, protracted youth,
And we all might play our parts
With unwearied, happy heartsf'
Unfortunate indeed is he who does not possess recollections of wandering bare-
footed through the pasture on a bright May morning, when the dewdrops sparkled on
the grass as dewdrops have never sparkled since, when birds sang sweeter than now birds
know how to singg when the heart seemed bubbling over with all the joy and freshness
of life: or of watching the mud ooze up between his toes after a rain: or of that first
stolen plunge in the old swimming-hole where the brook curves under the overhanging
willows through which the sun casts a shade-Hecked light upon the clear water: memories
- How the mornings used to rise
Just like music in the skies!
I-low the first breath of the day
Smelled like paradise in May,
And you couldn't stay in bed
For the bird-songs overhead!
Ah! l-low sweet life was, and good,
In the days of barefoothood!
55 55 55
Simple joys, and yet how sweet!-
Just the pools that laved your feetg
Just the mud between your toesg
just the wild fruit where it growsg
Just the home-made line and hookg
just the cool plunge in the brookg
Such as these were drink and food
In the days of barefoothood!"
Closely connected in thought with these is another lyric of country boyhood, Down
ihc Lane. If you have ever driven the cows up from pasture late on a June afternoon,
when the trees beside the lane cast long, cool shadows upon your pathway: a few solitary
clouds floated lazily in the blue sky above you, and the whole atmosphere seemed per-
meated with peace, these lines will Hnd an echo in your heart.
"Down the lane, Oh! down the lane, in the days of long ago,
How the lilacs white and purple, and the hawthorn used to blowg
And the dandelions, hiding in the matted velvet grass,
Seemed like little pools of sunshine, fit to splash in as you pass.
Oh! The summer morns and evenings, when the lazy, lowing cows
Let you dream your boyish day-dreams, while they idly stopped to browse.
as vs as as as
And your dream, perhaps, changed swiftly from the bird-song and the sky
To the money-making city, and the boy of by and by.
But I know, the whole world over, wheresoe'er a heart beats true,
That the man you dreamed of being always dreams of being you.
Oh! How glad heid be to empty all his gold-bags in the lane,
If they'd bring the dandelions and the boy-heart back again."
In Summer Rain our author has seized upon an incident familiar to all of us. We
have but to close our eyes and we can see the whole scene, so admirably is it described.
"The wind-blown poplar shifts from green to white
And white to green, as aimlessly as dreams.
Down leaps the torrent from the gurgling spout
And plunges, foam-white, in the caslc. The roof
Resounds with hasty drops, like hoof on hoof
Of elfin horsemen-a wild, cantering rout!
The windows stream, and blur the world with mist.
Gray night comes creeping early from the hills,
Pallid and tearful, like a child unkissed
That broods upon its little wrongs and illsf'
If Mr. Buckham had written nothing .save The Squirrels Road. we could be
certain that he knew and loved wild nature. As we read it, we can almost hear the
dead leaves rustling in the breeze and the chattering of the home-bound squirrel as he
Zig-zags over the moss-covered fence-rails. ,
The squirrel, on his frequent trips,
With corn and mast between his lips,
Glides in and out from rail to rail,
NVith ears erect and flashing tail.
Sometimes he stops, his spoil laid by,
To frisk and chatter merrilyg
Or wash his little elfin face,
With many a flirt and queer grimace.
Anon he scolds a passing crow,
jerking his pert tail to and fro,
Or scurries, like a frightened thief,
At shadow of a falling leaf.
All day along his fence-top road
He bears his harvest, load by loadg
The acorn with its little hatg
The butternut, egg-shaped and fatg
The farmer's corn from shock and wain:
Cheek-pouches full of mealy grain,
Three-cornered beechnuts, thin of shell:
The chestnut, burred and armored well:
And walnuts, with their tight green coats
Close buttoned 'round their slender throats.
In An Old Violin a somewhat different note is struck. Here we have the pathos
of the most divine of all human creations, a cremona violin, being bargained for in a
dusty shop. The fragile shell, in the hands of a skillful player, is capable of portraying
every shade of feeling known to the human soulg but in the hands of one unable to
question it properly it is merely so much wood. All the ecstacy which it might add to
the sum of human happiness is lost for the sake of gratifying the vanity of a single man
who can neither draw out its soul himself nor will allow others to do so.
"Behold this rare Cremona! Master it,
A 'Twill sing you pure as angels. But to hands
Unskilled 'tis but for mantel-rubbish fitg
Old, worth so much--one reads, and understands!
'Twas wont to shake men's hearts, as when the wind
Sets all the leaves aquiver. Now it lies
With all its sweet soul laid and undivined.
as as as as as
Ah, Well! Endure, thou masteris child! E.v'n so
Are noble spirits carped at, all unknown,
Vvhile through their hearts divinely swell and How
The melodies that genius hears alone."
We have all of us often pondered what the most powerful force in the world may
be. Sometimes, especially in these days, it seems as though hatred had gained the upper
hand. Not so did the Writer of these lines see life.
"Were man's soul an outcast thing,-
Every thought a raven wing
Resting not on roof or hill-
Love would overtake it still.
For l, know one strong desire
Binds the stars in chains of lireg
Lovel Who journeys to the shore
Where its power is felt no more?
Hell, though it were walled with brass,
Lifts its gates to let Love pass."
There come times to all of us when we feel the utter inadequacy of language to
express our feelingsg moments of supreme joy or sorrow, when words seem but a hollow
mockery, times when The Tribute of Silence is felt to be the only coin which has not
lost its worth.
A poet read his verses, and of two
Who listened, one spoke naught but open praiseg
The other held his peace, but all his face
V-Vas brightened by the inner joy he knew.
Two friends, long absent, met, and one had borne
The awful stroke and scathe of blinding loss.
Hand fell in hand, so knit they like a crossg
With no word uttered, heart to heart was sworn.
-is as -is as as
Oh, deep is silence,-deep as human souls,
Ay, deep as life, beyond all lead and line,
And words are but the hollow shells that shine
Along the shore, by which the ocean rollsf,
When we turn to lVIr. Buckham's later work, as seen in A Wayside Altar, we
find much that is in marked contrast to the Heart of Life. The love of nature which
we marked in the earlier Volume is present, to be sure-that never deserts him- but
the youthful exuberance which we found there is gone forever, and in its place is a
deeper, more thoughtful, religious, element than was present in the Hea1'i of Life. The
dreamer of dreams has become a seer of visions, the singer is a singer still, but the first
full burst of melody is gone, and in its place is a richer, more sober and chastened tone.
The keynote of the volume is struck in the following quatrain, which is placed on the
Hy-leaf as a kind of preface.
"Here by Lifels Path, where toilers pass,
All stained and footsore, day by day,
Lord, grant me grace to build, I pray,
An altar in the wayside grass."
Lofty conceptions of brotherhood and service which were only faintly hinted at in
isolated fragments of the earlier work now come to
noble reflection on Service at the very outset. -
the fore. For instance we have this
mAh, grand is the world's work, and noble, forsooth,
The doing one's part, be it ever so small!
You, reaping with Boaz, I, gleaning with Ruth,
Are honored by serving, yet servants of all.
- Is toil but a treadmill, Think not of the grind,
But think of the grist, what is done and to do,
The world growing better, more like to God's mind,
By long, faithful labor of helpers like you.
The broom, or the spade, or the shuttle, that plies
lts own honest task in its own honest way
Serves heaven not less than a star in the skies-
What more could the Pleiades do than obey?"
The same idea is expressed, in a slightly different way, in a beautiful sonnet, The
Hidden Reeds, which I quote entire.
"The stately organ pipes, o'erlaid with gold,
Look down on reverent worshippers, while floats
Aloft the sweet-toned prelude, and the notes
Of the grand psalm through nave and arch are rolled.
Within, concealed where none may them behold,
Vibrate the delicate and bird-like throats
Of reeds, which no bright paint or gilding coats,
Yet theirs the tones most sweet and manifold.
Whe1'e Timels great organ stands, in spaces dim,
God sets some lives to shine and some to hide.
But in the darkened chamber where they bide
The hidden reeds breathe sweetest praise to him-
Aye, tenderest lyrics for the sorrow-tried,
And rapture like the joy of seraphimf'
Though Mr. Buckham was absolutely permeated with the essence of Christianity
at this period, yet nowhere do we find a morbid or unwholesome note. He always
pierces through the dark clouds of sorrow and distress. Here, for example, is a poem
entitled Until the Day Break.
U0 heart! Though night be long and dreary,
Of patient faith be thou not weary!
The earth upon its axle turnsg
The brave, bright sun forever burnsg
Aye, day shall break for him who yearns,
And-so be cheery!
as as in as as
The day shall break! No dark forever
Blots out man's blessing or endeavor.
A time to feel how weak is dust-
A night of waiting when we must-
But never endless dark, we trust,
Night regnant,-never ! "
And here, in The Promise of Peace, is the note of the divine speaking through
"At dawn, as I lay half-Waking, and longing to sleep again,
Because, as my eyelids lifted, there in the dusk sat Pain,
There came from the orchard floating the first flute-note of spring,
The robin's song
A I had missed so long,
The song with the cheery ring!
I started, and Sorrow started, and we looked in each other's eye,
While robin sang, like a seraph, throat up, to the dim, gray sky.
I thought, for a blissful moment, that trouble had never been,
And Sorrow's face
Wore an angel's grace,
And I had peace within!
as as is as vs
I think it was heaven's answer to agonized, pleading prayer-
A hint of the perfect healing that waits us, sometime, somewhere,
O God! I trust that surely, as there in the springtide dawn,
Some heavenly day,
A Forever and aye, g .
The sense of our griefs will be gone!"
James Buckham was one of the truest, most poetic spirits that our University ever
called her son. His works deserve to be more widely known. They are not voluminous
-two volumes of verse and four of prose comprise the total-but they are filled with
inspiring and uplifting thoughts. Let us leave him as we greeted him, with a quotation
from the poem which his friend, Theron Brown, wrote at the time of his death:
Thy thoughts were hymns that sang no rnelancholpg
Friendship was sacred, learning was thy prize:
But Home Dias sweet, and solitude nvas holy
Under Cocfs holy skies. '

We dwell in a great cathedral,
Nor ever its bounds we leave,
And the Priest is forever with us,
Wheth,er we joy or grieve.
Theialtar is yonder mountain, U
The dome is the vaulted sky,
The censer, the moon that hangs there,
The candles, the stars on high.
The organ whose solemn echoes
Resound through the ancient pile
-Is the softly whispering south wind,
When the rippling waters smile,
And the sun shines bright in the heavens
And the happy wild birds singg
Or its tone is the voice of the tempest
Vifhen the clarklingv forests Hing
Their mighty branches skyward,
And tremble, sway, and break
Vlfhile the vessels quiver and labor
On the breast of the storm-lashed lake
We dwell in a great cathedral,
Nor ever its hounds we leave,
And the Priest is forever with us,
Whether we joy or grieve.

There is a keen sense of satisfaction in knowing how to tool-up and

Life is an opportunity and a responsibility-an opportunity to do something
worth while, a responsibility because it is an opportunity. Woe to the college
man who hides his talent or wastes it.
It was the dictum of a famous College President that every man is under
obligation to engage in the production of either moral or material values. He has
no right to be a drone, to eat the honey that others gather and make no contribu-
tion to the common stock.
The producer of values is himself valuable, and economic laws require that
he should insure the life that holds in trust his probable contribution to economic
values. Life insurance is the only safeguard against the loss that premature
death would entail. Life insurance covers his pecuniary liabilities to society and
to his family, and leaves him free to plan his life work on the assiunption that
he,will live long.

From the Highest Authorities
"Get at policy and then hold on to it. It means self respect,
it means that nobody will have to put something in a hat for you
or your dependent ones if you should he snatched away from thenif'
"Life Insurance increases the stability of the business world,
raises its nioral tone and puts at prerniuin upon those habits of thrift
and saving which are so essential to the welfare of the people as a
body." -THEODORE Roosnvrzrxr.
"A rnan in otfice without means must abandon the hope of mak-
ing the future of his family luxuriously eoinfortable. All a nian can
do under existing' circumstances to safeguard his family is to get his
lite insured." -XVILLIAM H. TAFT.
'LIE a inan does not provide for his ehildren, if he does not
provide for all those dependent upon hini, and if he has not tha.t
vision of conditions to Colne, and that care for the days that have
not yet dawned, which we sum up in the whole idea of thrift and
saving, then he has not opened his eyes to any adequate conception
of hunman lite. 'We are in this world to provide not for ourselves,
but for others, and that is the hasis of economy."
Heed the advice of these great men and start your insur-
ance now. Do you realize that the rates are lower for you
now than they ever will be again?

Back in the early sixties our business in fans
and blowers was firmly established, but no
suitable drivers were available-no engine
of the period came up to requirements. Ac-
cordingly there was developed a complete
line of steam engines-sturdy, well-designed
and perfectly lubricated. These engines
found early application in naval service
Where requirements are exceedingly severe.
The fact that they proved so successful is a
suiicient guarfantec of their excellency.
Later, motors and turbines were developed
as high speed fans came into general use.
VVe thus have a complete line of fans and
prime movers and can deal efliciently with
all air-handling problems-no matter what
the conditions of speed, or pressure.
The design of all our priine movers, engines,
turbines, and motors have been Worked out
with special reference to their application to
fans and blowers. For such service they
are unquestionably superior.
The addition of fuel economizers to our line
of power apparatus enables us to render com-
plete and efdcient service in powerhouse
Bulletins are published on all our apparatus.
