Wilbur Marshall Urban, Ph. D.
AYS DR. ORMOND, McCosh Professor of Philosophy at Princeton, "There
is no small college that has a Professor of Philosophy to equal Professor
Urban." The students and friends of Ursinus College are realizing the
truth of this statement, and we, the class of 1903, cherish the highest respect
for our esteemed Professor. We, therefore, dedicate this volume to him whom
we honor and with whose life, character, and work we daily come in contact.
Professor Urban's early life was spent in Philadelphia. He was born March
27th, I873, and is the son of Rev. A. L. Urban, of Woodbury, N. I. 'He attended
the public schools of the city, and afterwards spent four years at the William Penn
Charter School. At this institution he served as Editor-in-Chief of its magazine,
was graduated with honors as valedictorian of his class, and received the George
W. Childs Entrance Prize for Princeton.
In September, 1890, he entered Princeton University. His college days
speak for themselves. Ever after his Freshman year he was known as a cultured
man, though never regarded as a "poler". We may judge his broadness of mind
and his efficiency as a student by the honors he won. He was the successful con-
testant for the Sophomore Debate Prize, and. was appointed VVashington's Birth-
day Orator in his Junior year. His literary ability is shown by the fact that he
received the Baird Prize for Poetry, and the position as an Editor of the Nassazz
l,Z'fC'7'6Z7j' !lfrzg'azz'1zc in his Senior year. His education was not confined to classical
studies alone, for when he was graduated in 1895, he received his degree, mczgvza
cum laude, with special honors in philosophy, and was awarded the Chancellor
Green Fellowship in Mental Science.
After graduation, Prof. Urban went to Germany. For a year he studied at
the University of Jena. In the following summer he was married to Miss Eliza-
beth Newell Wakelin, of Philadelphia, a graduate of Smith College. After
travelling in England, France, and Germany, during the same summer, he entered
the University of Leipsic, There he spent a year under the instruction of Pro-
fessors Wilhelm Wundt and Max Heinze, and received his degree of Doctor of
Philosophy with the distinction of sulmzza mm fazzdf. The subject of his thesis,
which has since been favorably reviewed in foreign and American journals, was
"A History of the Principle of Sufficient Reason,-Its Metaphysical and Logical
In the fall of ,Q7 he returned to Princeton as a Reader in Philosophy, and
gave a course of lectures, extending through the year, to graduate students and
In 1898, after Dr. Raymond Dodge, Professor of Philosophy at Ursinus,
accepted a call from Wesleyan University, Prof. Urban was appointed as his
successor. This position he has since filled with marked ability.
His scholarship, as well as his position as an educator, is more fully shown
by his connection with educational circles and by his publications. He is an
activecmember of the American Psychological Association, and of the American
Philosophical Association. His contributions to the Rgfchologiral Revzkw have
been on the following subjects: "The Prospective Reference of Mind," "The
Psychology of Suliicient Reason," a.nd f:The Problem of a Logic of the Emotions
and Affective Memory," to the Phz'!os0jJ0z'ca! Jfevzkzu, "The Relation of the
Individual to the Social Value Series." He is one of the Assistant Editors of the
Dictionary of Philosophy and Psychology, edited by Professor J. Mark Baldwin,
having special charge of the work in philology. To this work he has also con-
tributed one of the leading articles on the topic "Value". Furthermore, Professor
Urban has made contributions to the investigation of Affective Memory which
have been recognized as important by Professor Ribot, of France, the pioneer in
that Held. He has now in press a continuation of this study, a monograph sup-
plement to the Psychofagzkaf Rcz'z'czc', entitled, "The Consciousness of Value,"
Thus Professor Urban's work gives him more than a local reputation.
As a teacher there are few subjects on which he does not have well-matured
opinions, yet, his keenness of insight into human nature makes him sympathetic
and tolerant of other men's views. "In his instruction, he is thorough, broad, and
modern, using the best pedagogical principles. He urges independent work and
research, and carefully guides the mind into proper channels to avoid false con-
clusions. Besides, the unconscious influence which radiates from him makes him
a great favorite among his students." He is the student's friend, always willing
to give aid, always open to private consultation, always able to give worthy
But Professor Urban's success as an educator is partly due to his character as
a man. He is a Christian gentleman and an ideal college man. As such he is
not a recluse, he posesses the golden mean of true dignity and modesty, which,
instead of repelling, attracts. With students and friends he shares the pleasures
and joys on the athletic field, on the campus, and in social gatherings. On such
occasions, his amiableness, his conversational ability and his delight in Wit and
humor draw many friends to him. '
Such is the record of a few of the facts of Professor Urban's career, better
portrayed, however, in his daily life and work. It is a pleasant thought that his
work has only begun. In the promising future that is before him the members
of the class of 1903 wish him abundant success.

"Brief chronicles ofthe time."
HE events of another year in college life will soon be numbered among the
past. Pleasure and action have made its hours seem short, and now
we may look back with gratihcation upon its many happy events.
We are pleased to welcome the new members of the Faculty, who, in the short
time they have been with us, have won the hearts of the students. Doctor Murlin,
of the University of Pennsylvania, was called to fill the place left vacant by our
late beloved Professor, Dr. Mensch. Dr. Murlin manifests great interest in tl1e work
of his department and insists on thoroughness in all his work, as the Juniors, to
their sorrow, discovered when the grades of the mid-year examinations were
reported. Dr. Grimm, of the johns Hopkins University, now occupies the position
for a long time filled so ably by our efficient Professor, Alcide Reichenbach.
The way the boys are heard droning over French and German verbs is suificient
evidence that Dr. Grimm deserves the confidence and respect which the students
have accorded him, Mr. Omwake, who was graduated with the class of '98,
has again returned to his Alma fllafwf, after having spent three years at Yale
University. Those who had known Mr. Omwake were especially glad to welcome
him back, and.as one of our own number he is a favorite among the students. He
brings a good preparation and a persistent activity to the position he has been
called to hll.
VVe have had an unusually successful year in athletics. The time-honored
feats of decorating the chapel with dummies and converting tl1e class-rooms into
stables have not consumed all surplus energy. Our friends who were here in the
"good old days" may not concede that last year witnessed our best year on the
diamond, but surely, the season of 19or was a grand success. "Chic" might well
smile as one of those down drops twirled across the plate and the umpire called,
"striker out." At the end of the season when we had scored ten victories against
three defeats, every member of the team merited the congratulations of the whole
Foot-ball, too, has had its brighter side. The men rallied around the coach,
"Ed', Kelly, 1901, who had captained the team very successfully for-two years.
With the majority of the men on the 1900 team as a nucleus, and several new men,
we began the year with bright prospects. Many obstacles, however, had to be over-
comeg the new men must be "hammered in" 3 the team must be 'filled with the
spirit to fight to the end, regardless of defeat or apparent victory, and, above
all, the men must be made to feel the importance of team work. Two severe defeats
and several sound "dressings" from the coach so impressed the team with the fatal
results of the "half-way business" that the men woke up and gave us three signal
victories. These important successes atoned for the poor showing in the beginning
of the season, and prepared the team for a noble struggle with the Blue and
White, on November 9. Much of the success of the season is due to the loyal
support of students, alumni and friends.
On the first morning that chapel services were held, the Freshmen announced
their appearance by a rousing yell. Class spirit has done very little to disturb the
quietness of college life but the Freshmen have made their influence felt in and
about the college.
An unusually large number of girls about the premises caused some alarm
among the other sex. But the frequency of visits to Olevian seems to show that
alarm has given way to endurance 5 endurance has led to pity 3 and, perhaps, pity
is followed by that which poets alone can describe.
After the foot-ball season, when the boys had feasted at the bountiful hand of
some of our good college friends, everything came to a standstill in college life.
Nothing occurred to break the monotony of the class-room or the study-hour.
Hence the necessity for general improvement clubs. The "Red Rovers" in the
Dog House were soon swallowed up by the East Wiiig' "'Alligators". The Literary
Societies came to the rescue. Hen parties in the library, class suppers, "set
outs" to the Faculty, athletic suppers, and numerous other social affairs have con-
tributed. to the general betterment of college social life.
The memories of the year 1901-1902 will surely linger with us, and we trust
that all may be able to look back upon the college year as both pleasant and

"The boy lhz1t's 'fraid of women 'll never hev whiskers."-Bacheller.
Billy is one of the few Juniors who has not yet found time to raise whiskers.
He received his preparation for college in Ursinus Academy. At present he stands
at the head of his class-in the college catalogue. He is one of the Phoenixville
contingent at Ursinus, and, like all natives of that smoky city is labelled "handle
with care". He is a devout follower of Nimrod, and much of his vacation is spent
in outdoor recreation. In the inter-class base-ball games he wielded the bat with
great effect, whensit did not wield him. When not engaged in Heecing "Puck" at
checkers, his favorite pastime is shaving. In politics he passed the cross-roads
while still in his cradle. Billy possesses a mature head for a lad of his age, and
in his favorite studies he maintains an excellent scholarship. His major is Modern
Languages, in which he will some day fill the chair at Ursinus. In the ranks of
1903 there is none more loyal and aggressive than Billy. Music and Shakespeare
are his chief emotional luxuries. I-Ie is a member of the Schaff Literary Society
and famed within its halls for his forceful, vigorous methods of debate. Among the
co-eds he has lost much of his former reserve but still remains to be "Hagged".
Billy comes from royal English ancestry, and for that reason is one of the American
participants in the coming Coronation. The blue blood in his veins is seen fre-
quently in the "call-downs" he administers to Poorman. Proverbially, as for all
small packages, we can attest to the quality of this strenuous parcel. Law will be
his probable pursuit after graduation.
"With too much thinking to have common thought."-Pops.
I-Ie looks serious and melancholy, Well, he is-to most persons. But he is
also otherwise. In fact, his biographer has a big job, so he will begin some
twenty years back when that most remarkable county of Lehigh gave birth to this
long-faced chap. We knew nothing of him until he struck Royersford High
School and Ursinus Academy and began to swoop in the crests of the honors
Then we said, "Behold a youth who cuts a swathe in intellect." He is fit to
grapple with Whole libraries. '
Once he was in love, but we will,not introduce that here. He belongs to an
old house and one of many components. Swiss and German blood How in his
Veins. English gives to him a dogged perseverance, and the French element, a
finish and delicacy to his personality. His greatest enjoyment seems to be chatting,
and that with one person, and he is fortunate who gains his "confidence for a
heart to heart talk". Then he appears what he is-a rare gem, sparkling with all
the genius of spirited youth. He once wrote an oration on "Nathaniel Hawthorne,
or the Spirit of Solitude," he will complete his biography when he writes on
"Shelley, or the Spirit of Unrest and Endless Aspiration." He reads Ruskin
enthusiastically and pulls bugs apart with great zest. He is preparing for rnedi-
cine. Analytic in his mental calibre, keen in discovering subtle relationships, of a
decidedly inquiring tendency-we expect to hear from him as a pioneer in the
world of thought. i
NEvIN FRANCIS GU'1'SH.-XT.T,
"Much like other mortals, no better, no worse,-only funnier."-Uuiue.
Beside the roar of the Tuscarora, amidst the wilds of the Switzerland of
America, Nevin Francis Gutshall opened his dreamy, blue eyes, only to close them
in his tirst nap-a nap which has never been finished, and from which Nevin
wakes up only periodically to attend to the most urgent dnties. He was born at
Mount Pleasant, Perry County,just thirteen days before Christmas, if memory
serves ns correctly. Little is known of his family tree except that he is a
descendant of Rip Van VVinkle. His early life was spent behind the plow amongst
the hills of his native county. After an attempt to enlighten the coming genera-
tion in a neighboring district school, he reached college by means of New Bloom-
field and Ursinus Academies. He entered the Class of IQO3 in the fall of '99, just
a few days late.
"Puck" is a good-natnrecl soul, full of original jokes and general good humor.
He was once a frequent visitor to Olevian until he had several experiences which
his sad heart has never revealed. His favorite pastime, when not asleep, is play-
ing checkers or dominoes. He is an active worker in society and other college
organizations and at present is absorbed in the arrangement of the 1902 foot-ball
schedule. His fntnre career is an enigma, but will likely be spent in teaching.
A CHARLES GROVE HAINES
"In fact, he was too proud a man to be a vain one."-Scalt.
This Grand Larna is master of all he surveys. At a single glance one can tell
that he comes from York County, and if there are any York County mistakes in
this book, just chalk them up against the editor. Unfortunately for the State he
was born in Maryland-just what part has not been determined, and perhaps this
edition will call forth some old folk tales as to conjunction of strange stars on that
memorable day, the 20th of September, 1879.
Mr. Haines Qwe must call him Mr.j is a serious young man. There are two
states to which he is subject : the serious and the meditative. Serious always, his
meditation prepares for action g action produces more food for meditation, and so
the cycle is completed.
When speaking of love he hesitates. He has never exactly measured girls from
a standpoint of personal utility, but he admits their share in life. just what this
means we have been unable to determine. Our hero is a student of that great
analyst of love, Ik Marvel. Ik describes love, but Mr. Haines says his own
experiences are indescribable, from this we hold that he has opened new fields
in the divine passion.
The technique of his life is something as follows : Was graduated from
Eichelberg Academy, and infused some learrringinto other youngstersg lineman
on the foot-ball team 3 a reader of Browning, and an original investigator in the
intricacies of woman. V He will teach History and Political Science.
FRANK HENnR1cKs HoBsoN
"What a man it is ! What a man it is ! A giant among pigiuies."-Dickens.
In more ways than-one this young fellow is the son of his father. He was
born one day in that lazy month of August, 1883, at the Hobson homestead, and
the character of the month has stayed with him throughout the part of his life
which he has managed to eke out. He never got very far from home unless he
was carried, and, since his greatness dawned upon his protectors at an early date,
he has remained for the most part in Collegeville. And so it was that we find him
drinking what Collegeville Grammar School and Ursinus Academy poured forth in
the way of learning. This process has not been one of assimilation, but rather of
accretion, so that at the age of eighteen we find a large outside product-in
" Beefy H. Eating and sleeping have contributed much to this satisfactory
development. Before he came to college he studied, wound up the gas machine,
and carried out ashes. Gradually he has sloughed off this lite until at present
study stands supreme.
We have mentioned his regard for precedent, Hence he is a Schaff man,
Reformed, Scotch-Irish, Republican, and hopes to 'achieve fame by marrying and
goinglto Law. Supreme happiness has never visited him, for he confesses he never
thought any girl an angel. Yet he reads modern romance, and occasionally lives
it. Hevhas flirted, too. His genius seems to lie in playing sliort-stop, and listen-
ing to the cheers from the grand stand. He often tells how his heart goes pit-a-
pat. He wants us to insert that he is going to be a great man. He is.

WALTER EDWARD Hoisrsonimiiz
"Lofty and sour to them that loved him not,
But to those that sought him sweet as 5lllT1ll1El'.''-SllUkESpEUVl.
Walter's preparation for college embraces a range almost too wide to
enumerate, He reached Ursinus Avia his mother's apron-string, Stroudsburg High
School, East Stroudsburg Normal School, Centennary Collegiate Institute,
Hackettstown, N. I., etc, etc. The first course of this preparation was imparted
to him amid the bleak hills and howling coyotes of Kansas. The last stage of his
pilgrimage, before entering college, was Phoenixville, Walter is an associate
editor of the Coflege Bzzlfeibz, and takes a keen interest in the aesthetic side of
college life. His work as end and quarterback on the foot-ball team, and at
second base on the diamond, has earned its Well-merited recognition. In his
college work he has always shown clearness and grasp of thought and a power of
pithy analysis, but, at intervals, lacks the continuity and application necessary to
give him his proper class ranking. He possesses an emotional nature which gives
him a marked dramatic ability. Much of his work in college breathes of an
originality rare among college students. To many of his fellow-students his
general mai7zz'z'm may, at times, seem eccentric and inexplicable, but only because
externals are permitted to obscure that which in any person may be read only in
terms of self. An ardent admirer of the fair sex, his chief delight is in social
evenings. Solomon is his favorite author and raising whiskers and writing poetry
are his main forms of recreation. Ile is a keen observer of human nature and his
future will be devoted to teaching.
MALCOLM PETER Lauos
"Tlmt boy'1l hev to be a minister. He can'L work."-Raclleller.
Malcolm Peter Laros was born in Lehigh County but has resided in College-
ville for the greater part of his busy career. His is a face that is Well known
about the college. Early in youth he entered Ursinus Academy, and from thence
coasted along until he attained a velocity which bids fair to carry him through
college, unless checked by some external force. He seldom misses a recitation,
except he be absent. Among the junior Biologs he is, zfiwz wore, chief demon-
strator, and has issued in pamphlet form his recent lecture upon the aromatic
principles of the iVic0!z'mza Dzbaczmz. Outdoor life appeals to him far more than
the class-room. He is a promising young pitcher and in the inter-class series did
some excellent work for the Juniors. His politics are those of "Bullock", in
which they may be found set forth at length. Mally is a member of the Zwinglian
Literary Society and is possessed of considerable forensic ability, though he seldom
exhibits it. He is of French descent and his name, La Rose, suggests better than
Words the curly-haired, fair-checked lad not altogether indifferent to some of our
college lasses. Usually of an equable temperament he is not easily "rattled",
and his easy-going, good-natured, unsellishness is Well Known among his class-
mates. He is very fond of music and performs upon several string instruments.
His spare moments are spent in the study and the discussion of Plato's Symposium
and in inculcating Socratic principles into the moral hbre of his classmates. He
is pursuing the Chemical'-Biological course in college, and his future productions
in literature will bear the caption Bc.
ALBERQ' GIDEON PETERS H
t'Ah, I know, I know. It was a wise man who said it was hard to love a woman and do anything else."-Caine.
Remembering the old proverb "Eile mit Weilel', the gentleman whose benign
countenance greets you on this page made his ziebzzi in society some twenty-odd
years ago. How low was the bow which he graciously made on this memorable
occasion is not distinctly remembered. But, We have heard tell, that in all the
country roundabout Newside, Lehigh County, a prettier baby-boy than he had
not been seen for many a year. Long before he learned fully how to hoe corn
and to eat sauer kraut, tl1e bewitching eyes of many a fair damsel had completely
entranced him. Good, old Pennsylvania German blood courses through his veins
and, with a heart as big as the prize pumpkin at the Allentown Fair last fall,
Peters is altogether a jolly' good fellow,-except when he has the blues. Indeed,
his college course has consisted of great rejoiciugs on the mountain topewhen he
would write verse and shout-followed by long, bitter lamentations in the valley-
when he would give up the ghost and dye-his handkerchief with tears. It's a
shame, a monstrous shame, with what cruelty the girls have treated you, Albert l
Riding in an upsetless carriage furnishes him with the greatest of pleasure,
outside of reciting " Deacon Brown's Donation". He has taught school, can-
vassed for book,' broom and shoe firms, and acted as General Receiving Agent
for blacking companies. From such a varied experience, We hope "The Reverend
Albert Gideon Peters" will be able to procure sufhcient striking illustrations with
which to make his sermons long enough to impress upon the minds of his hearers
the important truths of Christianity. Amen.
JOHN HENRY POORMAN
"At once didactic and devotional."-Barheller.
Behold, a cedar of Lebanon! This is a product indigenous to Lebanon
County soil. Transplanting to the mellow climate of the Perkiomen has modified
but little the native vigor and rugged strength of this hardy northern growth.
Notwithstanding his extreme youth John carries a well-balanced head upon his
shoulders, and is endowed with a goodly amount of common sense. He is a
member of the Zwinglian Literary Society, and received second honor in the
Freshman Declamation Contest. He is a much-quoted authority and has shown
great power for original research work. His theories on alcoholic fermentation
have thrown much light on some of the Zymogenic problems of biology. At
present he is engaged in the preparation of a paper embodying the results of a
two years' study of the chemistry of "sweet-wort". Plain and honest, he is not
easily swerved from his convictions. His frank, open countenance, with its
winning youthfulness, is instinct with qualities which win their way to friendship.
His favorite recreations are found in the dining-room and in the vicinity of the
bulletin board. The Dean and " Pappy " are hischerished ideals. The ministry
will be his future field of action. Such, in short, is john Henry Poorman,
" Chronic Kicker" and youngster of the junior Class.
Isamn TYIARCH RA191'
"Blest with plain reason and with sober 5Ell9C."4P0fl'.
This bright-looking chap Hrst smiled upon the world just as rosy-fingered Eos
made her appearance on Nov. 22, 1877. Wlien but a little boy in Cedar Hollow
he learned to vvrite his name " I M. Rapp", and everyone believed him. After
having received a thorough education in farm work he entered Ursiuus Academy,
from which he' was initiated into the mysteries of the Class of 1903. He was
President of the Class during the Freshman year, He has played his fourth sea-
son on the 'Varsity Foot-Ball Team, and his pretty end-runs have made him one
of the heroes of the gridiron. Base-ball has also claimed his attention. The
"scrub" and class teams were captained by him very successfully last spring.
"Rappy" is orthodox in his religious beliefs, and a red-hot Republican. Though he
is not prominent in love affairs about the institution, monthly boxes of " goodies "
have told oni him. He is a quiet, sensible, well-met companion. Of English
descent, he is able to trace his ancestry as far back as his grandfather. He is
essentially a business man and mathematician. His laugh is a hearty one,
running through the whole scale. From his dreams about Byerly's "Differential
Calculus H, We judge he will enter the teaching profession.
JUAN Lisnoy RoTH
"A decent boldness ever meets with friends.
Sncceerls, and even a stranger recommends."-Pope.
Jean Leroy is a pretty French name for a genial good fellow of " York County
Dutch " extraction. Leroy came to Ursinus through Shippensburg Normal, York
County Academy, Ursinus Academy and " dad ", He is not the least in love or
in war. Besides being the social lion of his class he is very prominent in
athletics. His efficient work on the Athletic Field has won for him the captaincy
of the 1902 Base-Ball Team and the 1903 Foot-Ball Team. As long as he is on
the good side of the co-eds, and can assert his physical abilities, he is a happy
boy. As gymnasium manager he takes special interest in the ladies' classes. He
has the fatal gift of beauty and his high aspirations will likely be attained unless
led astray by this one great weakness. Although manager of the Bzdfefin he
Ends time to draw sketches for the RUBY and has just discovered his artistic
ability. He says there is more in life than can be found in books. As a member
of the Schaff Society he has won renown as an editor. All in all, Leroy is a hrst-
rate, jolly fellow and has many warm friends in the college and THE TOWN.
His favorite pastime is meditation, but his mind works better when in the
presence of another. He will likely be al physician and no doubt his active,
energetic spirit will win success.
HENRY BEERS Sn-11TH
"'l'liere's nobody like hilllfi-.DlYEk6VlJ.
Henry Beers Smith, one of Northampton Connty's Nazarenes, came bouncing
to Ursinus. Why he came here is a mystery to him. Once having decided to go to
college he stopped at the first place he struck. Henry was born at Smith Gap
CKunkletown Post Officej, Eldred Township, Monroe County, Pennsylvania,
United States of America, January 12, 1881. Fearing the deteriorating effects of
rustic surroundings, at' an early age he persuaded his parents to emigrate to
Nazareth, Northampton County. His ancestors originally came from the
Palatinate where they owned property on the Rhine QD.
In his early Freshman days his youthful affection received a severe set-back,
but Henry soon again became a favorite with the co-eds, and at public occa-
sions he is always accompanied by one of Olevianis fair dolls. He is a great patron
of the college receptions and pays periodic visits to the Zwinglian Literary Society.
Occasionally he has been known to remove his pipe from between his lips, and
stroll about the college to View the class rooms. A jollier, rollicking, good-
natured fellow never cut across the campus. His warm unselfish nature is ever
open to the welfare of his class. Nothing disturbs his serene equanirnity. He
has ever remained color-blind to all obstacles and, not unlike his own, the doors
of his classmates are even as though they were not. He has shown an exceptional
business ability in all that he has mzc!erfake1z,,and his college life will some day
blend into a business career.
MARION GERTRUDIS S1'.'1Ntsr,1e:1a
"Give me some music! music, moody food
of us that trade i11 love."-Shakcspcure.
After two scholastic years this one co-ed remains to grace the ranks of
IQO3 with womanfs refining presence. Marion Gertrude, as she delights to be
called, was born in Perry County, Pa., and comes from the stock "that built a
nation". She is a true " Daughter of the Revolution ", and her ancestor, George
Ross, was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. In her class
spirit, traces of this old patriotic fire have not been wanting.
Marion has always been enthusiastic in class affairs and now serves as Presi-
dent of 1903. She is captain of- the basket-ball team, and helps swell the
Chaminade Chorus. As an apostle of a higher social life at Ursinus, the members
of the Schaff Society have borne with patience the lengthy dissertations upon her
favorite subject. However, she has not been content with words, for the boys of
IQO3 can attest to her hospitality. Her nature is emotional and the secrets of her
life might reveal some very interesting romances. Through her music, however,
can be felt the expression of her deeper feelings. She is one of the- few in our
class who have musical ability, and will make it h-er life-work. 3

Q99 at V99
A VERY short time has passed since
' hx lp we entered these classic halls. We
are already nearing the second
-t milestone in our journey, Although we
"li were glad to lay aside the "robes of
GC- in Fi- pd , emerald hue" last June, yet it was with
b i i some hesitation that we took up our new
-g l s--a responsibilities iii nie Fan. We realized
that our new position brought with it
:ri i., A: ,,.. - V jf g if new duties and we determined to perform
'ge' iii gifs' them as we thought right and proper.
i i Our plans were accordingly made and,
, WT- ee f Y notwithstanding tannts and challenges,
We have carried them ont and believe
that all are the better for it. We tried
to treat all as well as we knew how and we believe that to this fact, as well as to
other more refined influences, is due the general good feeling existing between
the lower classinen. E
Since our Hrst record appeared we have been busy with the active duties of
college life. The various organizations of the college have been supported by us.
Of our record in the series of inter-class base-ball games last season, considering
our number and experience, we have just reason to be proud.
We are sorry to record the departure of several ofthe members of our class to
other fields of labor. They are missed by us and our best wishes are with them
in their Work.
We are not able to introduce this brief survey with a long list of achieve-
ments, nor would we desire to do so if we conldg but We feel that quietly and
surely we have been progressing in our Work. During our brief stay in these
halls, We have endeavored to live up to our motto and, as we ascend each round
of the ladder, We hope " to live for the highest things ".

rushing up the steps pell-mell. NVe congratulated each other that our long-
sought-for rush was at hand, but they came, they saw, they talked,-they ran.
Two months later one of the timid "Sophs " began to raise side-whiskers. They
grew longer and became more offensive to our good taste, so We kindly shaved
We are not only a class of daring boys and girls, but we are also one of athletes.
Our class includes ive members of the regular foot-ball team and several of the
reserves. In base-ball, too, our class is strong. Among others it contains the
college battery. W'ith this array we are willing to meet any other class on the
athletic field. Our intellectual abilities are so well known that it is not necessary
to dwell upon them, These facts, together with the class' indomitable spirit, place
it in the front rank of Freshman Classes.
F RESI-IMAN DAYS
HAT joy is this, that holds its sway?
'Tis a merry play, all seeming gay
With sports, and mirth, and listless bliss,
Tempered with much that is a Miss.
Peep in Helds of art and learning,
Freshman 'tis true most strongly yearning,
Grips his Geom., in silent mourning,
Cranis his head in useless adorning.
In moleskin pads, smooth and tough,
With push, and snap, and plunges rough,
Upon the gridiron up and down,
The Freshmen pound, to make more ground
ln twilightls bright fold, bathed in rich gold
Speeding swiftly thro' breeze most cold,
No thought is ours, save pleasures thrill,
As merry skaters we brave the chill.
And then comes Spring, and joyful May,
And we welcome glad, the lengthening day 3
On the base-ball Held with many a fall,
We hurl the modern cannon-ball.
NVhen eve with gliding, phantomy sheath
Has thrown its pall o'er mount and reed-
Hark! in midnightls hue sombre and dark,
Rings out the call for merry lark,
Then on swift wing thro' mist it speeds
Flinging the notes of our triumphant deeds,
In revelry we steep, 'tis meet
This clink and Clank, and joyous prank.
Ever and oft this tale is told
In song and story the theme grows old g
Yet onward, on fleeting wing of Time,
The strains are born in waves sublime.
Till nnally in cadence sweet,
Our song in majesty complete
Ascends, and the listening winds waft on
The final notes of Freshman song.

HE series of inter-class base-ball games for the championship of the college marked one of
the most pleasant events ofthe Spring of IQOI. As we look back over these games with
their intense rivalry and withal general good will, we recall many happy incidents. Stoner,
Keiter and " Browny " donned base-ball togs for the first time and ventured to do and die, if need
be, for the fair Freshman lassies who cheered them with many inspiring yells. " Browny "
managed to keep at a safe distance from the ball and came dangerously near making a hit.
Hoyt was early! disabled in a terrinc attempt to slide into first base. Captain Sando's class
spirit rose high and his good work saved the reputation of his team. The good showing of the
Freshmen was due in a. large degree to the effective work of the junior battery, "Willie"
Fisher and " Iakieu Lentz, who laid aside their Junior pride to assist the Freshies in their
games with the Seniors and the Sophs. 'L Wil1ie's" peculiar rubbing and twisting of the ball,
however, did not rattle his Senior and Soph opponents, for his little "dinky" curves were
generally straightened out into two- and three-base hits. " VVillie's " fame as a pitcher passed
away i11 these two contests and later when he came on the diamond in the 1902-lgog game
it was even more fully demonstrated that he was an easy mark.
Perhaps the greatest surprise of the series was the manly action of 1902 to meet 1903 in a
fair, open contest. A strong desire to prevent the Seniors from winning the championship
spurred them on to play a game which, although one-sided, was made interesting by several
brilliant plays. " XVillie" and "jakie", the star battery, played both inheld and outfield,
while the remainder of the team found time to quarrel among themselves. Captain Bartholomew
deserves mention for one remarkable and heretofore unknown play,-making a grand-stand
stop, he tagged third-bag, threw up his hands in triumph and contended with the umpire that
the runner was out. Henry distinguished himself at the bat, at least o11ce, when he hit
funavoidablyj one of Roth's swift liners and it almost rolled out of the diamond. Kern at
shortstop was conspicuous as -the G-ibraltar of the Juniors. He was truly the post of the team.
Six innings were more than enough to give the Sophs a decided victory and to convince the
Juniors that they couldn't play ball. l 4
We must have consideration for the feelings of the class who were Seniors in the Spring
of Igor. They have gone and shall not be forgotten. But, alas for them, their base-ball
prowess went before they did. The story of their wondrous defeat in the Igor-1903 game is
simply told. Seniors are proverbially stiff and individualistic. 'When these two qualities swept
over their aggregation, the young Sophomore blood rose to the opportunity-but the Seniors
rose higher, for in that memorable sixth inning they took the balloon and went up in the air in
true idealistic fashion. When they came down and saw what the Sophs had been doing they
resorted to Zeno and his stoical philosophy. They took the defeat good-naturetlly, only their
whiskers grew faster and their philosophy had a melancholy tinge unknown to them before. -

Captain Foot-Ball Team 1901
John Lentz was a member of the foot-hall team during the four years of his college course.
Serving as a substitute on the strong team of 1898 he was well ritted to fill the position of right
tackle on the team of the following year. This position he has Filled on each succeeding team.
He was a good, aggressive player and the record ,of the 1901 foot-ball team speaks for his
efficiency as a captain,
john Long entered college in the Sophomore year with the class of 1902, His work on the
gridiron has always been of the best. As a half back he could be depended upon for good
consistent gains. His work this season was especially creditable and the fine showing in the
Franklin and Marshall game brought his record to a fitting close.

The Banquets to the Foot-Ball Team
HE foot-ball season of IQOI had a fitting climax in the banquets given to the team by Dr.
E. A. Krusen, and F. G. Hobson, Esq., two of the stauuchest supporters of the team.
The banquet given by Dr. a11d Mrs. Krusen occurred on November 26, when the team, the
coach, the members of the college faculty and a few friends gathered at their home. An
excellent menu was served and eloquence ran riot, the host introducing the speakers in a few,
well-chosen words. The athletic glory of Ursinus was told and retold, and her athletes praised
in glowing and enthusiastic terms. ,
Mr. Hobson's invitation to the team was for the evening of December 5, a night which will
live in the memory of the pig-skin warrior. The players, the coach, the manager and Mr.
Hobson seated themselves at the table. The idea predominant in the mind of the host was the
ease of the players. In a neatly-turned speech he requested the players to " tackle " hard-and
such tackling was never before seen on any gridiron-the boys playing the Roman ideally.
Such were the banquets of November 26 and December 5,-tit testimonials of the high
appreciation held for the work done by the team. The good cheer, the jollity, even the bad
speeches, will always be remembered, and, above all, the kindness and the spirit which
prompted the banquets will ever live in the memory of the individual players and friends.
However, in addition to the individual result, these banquets have had an effect which is
destined to become a material factor in the success of the future. To illustrate our meaning we
must refer to the game of foot-ball itself. Of all the attributes which conduce to make a team
successful, such as speed, weight, strength, science and spirit, the last is one of the most
essential. Speed, weight and strength are personal properties of the player, science is received
from the coach, whereas spirit has both an inherent and external source. Enthusiasm
is contagious. The player catches it from the rooter, the sympathizer, the supporter: hence,
whatever tends to create this spirit is to be fostered. It follows, as clearly as night the day,
that inasmuch as a material expression of sympathy, of support, of appreciation, is a generator
of enthusiasm, it is to be cherished and regarded as a potent factor in the success of the future.
This, we think, has been the effect of the banquets given-a result for which not only the
players, but all the friends of the institution stand indebted to Messrs. Krusen and Hobson.

ei J .92
AIR Seat of Learning -hid among the hills,
Increased in beauty with the ripening years,
Hast thou no thought of all the strife that fills
This outer world with tumult and with tears?-
This outer world, that seems so far away
From thine Arcaflian courts where peace holds sway
Hast thou no thought of it ?-or, knowing all-
Aye, feeling all its passion and its pain-
Art thou set here that men may come and fall
Beside thy crystal fount, and drink, and gain
Deep strength and clear-eyed courage for the strife-
The earnest conflict, and the strenuous life?
Uplifted here for this? Ah, yes, and more !
That they, thy champions, may anon return
And find thee ever dearer than before,-
The very place of rest for which they yearn g
Thy towering pine-trees always fresh and green 3
Thy limpid stream still Howing on serene !
And, over these, thy purpose just as high
With rugged power and perennial youth
As when those champions in the years gone by,
Inspired of thee, sought patiently for truth g
And, seeking, learned it day by day, until
The heavens opened and they knew G0d's will I
His will, at times unfolded without words
To them who, listening from some leafy bower,
Drank in the great, wild chorus of the birds
That filled thine orchards at the morning hour !
Or, following fragrant paths and shady nooks,
Acquired a language not contained in books !
How kindly all thy whispering maples spoke
To hearts grown weary with the stubborn page !
VVith what grave dignity each ancient oak
Sheltered and kept that splendid heritage
Thy Campus, to which old and young as well
Came after toil-and watched while evening fell I
Still, still, I see the sunset clouds that Hung
Their gold and crimson into Sununer's lap,
Far out above the verdant meadows, strung
Along the road from Limerick to La Trappe-
La Trappe historic, where a patriot sire
Kinflled his offspring with illustrious fire I
Or, to the South, sequestered Glenwood Hall-
Hurd by the Perkioinens rythniic din,
Surrounded close with Cedars, straight and tall,
As if to shield the gentler souls within g
Perched highelike some old temple-on a hill 5
Yes, classic shrine. I look and see thee still I
And then, Ursinus !-School not made with hands,
Hut rather reared of Nature for her own-
Mine eyes return I and lo, I feel thy bands
Quicken and hind ine to thy rural throne l
Till, from the cont:-ict, life the nobler grows,
And all my soul with loftier impulse Hows l

Scientific Research and Teaching
ROBERT lVlEARNS YERKES, IQ7, Instructor in Comparative Psychology, Harvard University
S a member of the class which gave birth to the RUBY, I appreciate and
am grateful for this opportunity to address a few words to the Alumni and
Students of Ursinus. As a physiologist I welcome the chance to call atten-
tion to certain aspects of the relation of " original work " to teaching.
First among the functions of the college is the making of men g second, the
making of scholars. Training, not learning, is essential for success in any line of
endeavor. Whatever is learned by the way will some time be of value, but it is a
means, not the end. Ability to think and to act, to obey or to command, in short,con-
trol over one's self, alone makes possible a well-balanced and happy life. That the
college gives. Power gained through constant and faithful attention to the duties,
privileges and opportunities of college life begets insight into life, sympathy with
humanity in all its phases of satisfaction and desire. We need constantly to
remember that the worthy aim is not to strive to know all that has been known,
but to understand man in his relations to his fellows and to the events of the
external world, and to grasp the deepest meaning and tendencies of historic
developments. College education, if it is'worth while, is so because it Hts men
for life. The teacher, lawyer, engineer, merchant, banker should, by reason of
it, be able to appreciate and increase the worth of life.
It is my privilege to write of educational aims and ideals from the point of
view of one whose chiefinterest is in scientific research. The thoughts which I
wish to offer to all -who are interested in the success of Ursinus, concern the rela-
tion of original work to teaching. To what extent, if at all, should the college
teacher be an investigator? Is he a better teacher for being an original Worker?
These are questions of present pedagogical importance,
Above all the teacher must be enthusiastic and energetic, his subject must
appeal to him as something worthy of his best efforts, something which is not to
be taught merely to impart a few facts, but rather to give insight, training,
inspiration, longing for higher attainment. To be efficient the teacher must be an
original thinker. Wlietlier he finds time for elaborate researches in his field, or is
forced to devote what little time he can give to his own work to the perfecting of
what has been clone by others, to the working out of methods of teaching, or to
studying the relations of his subject to the needs of his students, matters little-
what is all important is that he have a living, burning interest in the advance-
ment of human knowledge and, through it, of human happiness.
In our small colleges the demands made upon teachers are so great as oft
times to exclude the possibilty of much research. Yet, where there is a will there
is a way, where the desire exists in strength of purpose and in character, the
influence ofthe teacher tells. Although he may not be able to add much to the
material of his subject, his enthusiasm inspires his students and leads them beyond
the too often irksome routine of study into the fascinating ways of original search
for truth. For the crude facts of any subject need to be colored and animated by
being brought into relation to life, and it is the teacher who can make his students
feel most vividly that back of the individual and isolated facts of a subject are
historic processes, tendencies and natural developments, whose life is a blessing to
the world and whose efforts are the making of his institution.
Abundance of life, enthusiasm, courage and, most of all, intellectual honesty
mark the successful teacher. Students must be led, not driven, inspired, not
bribed or coaxed. Only those men who are admirable as men, whose strength of
character and whose attitude toward life makes them worthy ,of all praise, should be
allowed as teachers within college walls. To-day our colleges need to look to the
manliness of their teachers as well as to their insight and scholarship. Students
should be made to feel that they are potentially good, strong, scholarlyg for
nothing so increases self respect as the feeling that one is respected by those he
admires. Enthusiasm is contagious, and the teacher who possesses it is a sure
source of inspiration. In order to maintain freshness and interest one must be
seeking the new, hence, original workers are able to lead their students most
There is satisfaction in seeking for truth in science, in art, in life, and the
passion for appreciation and understanding is as strong and almost as worthy as
the passion for righteousness. As yet America offers no great opportunities for
lives devoted to research, for the teacher is busy with teaching, the scientist is
busy applying what few discoveries he has made, or more often those that have
been made across the seas, to the needs of daily life. Everywhere the search is
for wealth or position, or for purely practical attainments. Wliile in the past we
needed resources for research, now that we have them, interest and desire to
discover truth are feeble. The time is at hand, however, when a class of investi-
gators may arise whose aim will be not only to seek the new, but, as
well, to inspire students. There will be men who, by reason of their passionate
longing to know all that is knowable and to see life clearly and whole, are fitted to
be the guardians and leaders of youth. Even now our American Universities are
making possible the existence of this type of man. They require relatively little
teaching and allow much time to the scholar for original work outside of the class
room. Our smaller institutions may follow in the same path by encouraging and
giving preference to those teachers who have the will and the longing to seek for
truth and who inspire the same longing in their students. In many ways the
small college has the advantage over the larger institution. In it the strong
teacher can be a personal power in the life of every student. His sphere is
smaller than in the great university, but his influence may be proportionately
Ursinus possesses the equipment for training men and scholars. Those who
guard her interests should be alive to the responsibility which rests upon them
and proud of their trust. University life and training may give greater breadth of
view, deeper insight, Wider sympathy, higher scholarship and a truer appreciation
of men, but, in general, it can not better Ht men for the attainment of the best in
life than can Ursinus. Those who are faithful to their Ursinus duties will ind
themselves able to lead or to follovv, to take or to give, with the best of men-
Fullest of promise, however, are those who leave the college with an oppressive
sense of ignorance and narrovvness, yet, with faith in their ability to be men and
to do great and worthy things.
Value of a College Education to the Business Man
CHARLES D. MURTHA, '86
HE practical value of a collegiate educa-
tion in its bearing upon a commercial
career is not so apparent as when
applied to any of the learned professions-
The object of this article is to consider the
reflex character of a college career upon the
condition and circumstances incidental to
trade. While it must be conceded that suc-
cess in the commercial world does not depend
solely and entirely upon an antecedent
collegiate training, yet that it imparts ad-
vantages that are great aids to success is
'That the pedantry of schools may be
obnoxious to many with whom the active
business man may come in Contact is true,
but a wise use of valuable knowledge is an
attraction to the most illiterate. A college education is a valuable aid in forming
attractive and profitable associations in the social world. We say profitable because,
no matter what a man's calling may be, he is always benented by proper social rela-
tions. It might with truthfulness be affirmed that a college education is in some
respects of more significance to a business man than to one in the learned
professions. The career of the learned blacksmith startled the literary World while
a learned professor simply iills a common place. Let it be known that a street
boot-black is a classical scholar, and he will receive, not only patronage, but at
deference not accorded the orthodox street "gamin". A knowledge of astronomy
unobstrusively shown by a very young man at an evening entertainment so
favorably impressed a wealthy merchant that he gave the bright exporienti of
the science a profitable position in his store. George Stephenson was wortifiiiy
accounted the greatest mechanical genius of his age, yet it was a source of regret
and annoyance that he could not put into sensible language the thoughts that
thrilled his soul. '
What mental relaxation from the career of trade is accorded one who, after
the business activities of the day are over, can live in those higher realms of
thought that strengthen him for the duties of the morrow. A college education is
a good investment for this refreshment alone. Then, too, this proper higher
training imparts a dignity of manner at once indicative of the advantages he has
gained, and the world sees and appreciates it. We feel justified in this broad
assertion that a college education is never Wasted, no matter what the subsequent
career of the student may be. Learning engenders respect, regardless of the
conditions under which it exists, and that respect must be a source of profit
Whether it be to the maker of bricks or to the mender of shoes Respect begets
patronage, and patronage is what every business man Wants and costs so much to
obtain. All that is required to make a desire for a college education as universal
as taxes is an aiiirmance of the fact that it is prohtable in every condition of life.
The ex-collegian may take upon himself the isolation of the hermit, yet from
every leaf and flower, by knowledgeigained, proceeds for him a pleasant language.
The solid earth itself is full of information, from Alma Mafeff won, and when
night throws her sable inantle over the earth, each 'star will play its part on the
sky-staged drama for his profit and delight.

Tendencies in Modern Education
JAMES H. LEUBA, '88, Bryn Mawr College
CELEBRATED writer has said that the art
of writing books consists in knowing what to
leave out. If this remark is true of books, how
much truer must it be of compositions limited to a
few pages. Let us then try and omit wisely.
The chief characteristics of modern education
could best be stated, in the following two proposi-
tions: fls aim is Nora' rolzfroffcd mon' 1'711711z'd7'nz'4'Q'
Mem cttw' Qi' Mc' j57'afz'z'mf izzwls W' iff? 5 'fix 7lll'lw0l'!S
are in daszvf agzcfflzwzf ruffh My fafcfs Qf,g'1'0zuM.
Wliile the changes which have taken place
Linder the influence of the hrst of these guiding
principles may not be all in the nature of an advance,
those falling under the second would of necessity be
consistent with real progress.
Let us consider rapidly some of the most
important of these changes, beginning with those which fall chiefly under the
first head. We say Mijn because there exists no 6Zf7'Z'07'l' reason why a modifi-
cation could not be prompted at once by the two tendencies indicated 5 as a matter
of fact this has often been the case. ,
The old education may be said to have been almost exclusively for general
culture. In -a community like ours, general culture without some particular
talents developed to a high efnciency, is an unmarketable commodity. There is,
therefore, little demand for it. Public opinion requires, and almost exacts, that
education should not only complete, enlarge and beautify, but should also place at
the disposal of the individual some particular knowledge or skill which may
become the means of his future success in the calling he is to choose for his own.
Our higher schools are thus not primaril-y called upon to do what Montaigne
and Locke wanted-men of Hnished manners and sound judgment, i. cf., gentlemen
in the best sense of the word,-but lawyers, physicians, ministers, engineers,
electricians, business men-yes, even business men 5 or else, what is the
significance of the earnest discussions going on in certain periodicals over the
the mooted point of the value of a college education to a future business man?
This powerful tendency accounts for a large part of the " new " in education.
Is it not, for instance, under the guidance of the growing strenuousness of the
struggle for practical success that scientific and technical instruction are winning
an increasingly large place by the side of the formal, classical, culture? Greek and
Latin are no more tl1e exclusive synonyms of higher education. Russia is even
now planning to remove entirely both these languages from the required university
baggage of the students,
We do not overlook the fact that the physical and psychological sciences have
a wider iclaim to the predominance they seem destined to gain in our educational
institutions, than their value as stepping stones to many profitable callings. They
are one of the best, if not altogether the best, means of imparting that invaluable
training which shows itself in correct observation. sound generalization and
ability to deal efficiently with the "stuff " of life. They give moreover-and this
is not the least of the higher functions of science teaching-the data upon
which a " welt anschauungn, with some chances of being more than a dream, may
be built. '
The recent and far-reaching innovation of allowing the college student to
choose, within wide limits, what studies he shall pursue, Celective systemj, is
in part, also due to the same influence. Let the young man be educated according
to his needs, let him specialize early in the line along which he is to make his
career, says the supporter of the elective system.
Here must also be placed the most important of the recent innovations in the
mefhods of teaching-Mc c,17561'zf12zcf1z1fzzZ, Zczbomfofjf, fifefflozi. It was stimulated, if
not altogether brought into existence, by the compelling power of life which
demands not merely theoretical but practical first-hand knowledge and ability in
So much for the transformations due chiefly to the needs of life. We have
now to take account of the large group of more or less valuable improvements
which have originated in a deeper knowledge of the conditions of mental growth.
They are improvements which, in the nature of the case, would bear on the
methods of teaching rather than on its substance.
Here should again be mentioned the experimental method, which has the
good fortune of being demanded both by practical needs and by pedagogy g then
the so-called "natural" methods of teaching the languages, the reforms intro-
duced in historical and geographical instruction and, concerning the very young,
the kindergarten methods.
It will, no doubt, occur to the student of the kindergarten, that every one of
these changes may be looked upon as the result of the application of the kinder-
garten principles to older pupils This means simply that Froebel discovered or,
rather, put into practical use for the little child, principles of education which are
universally valid. We speak advisedly. VVhat are some of the basal ideas of the
Froebelian reform? CID Freedom : let the child live naturally while at school,
let him preserve, as far as possible, the freedom of his movement and his mental
spontaneity. C23 Give him concrete objects upon which to exercise his senses
and his judgment, instead of books in which to read abou! the feelings and ideas
of others. Q35 .Develop his interest, for no good work is possible without it,
C45 Make use of all the possible means of growth and above all, of the' 6lCf7.'L'E ones,
such as manual work, speech and song.
Apply these principles to higher education and you produce the changes we
have mentioned, as well as n1any others 11ot yet realized. W'hat is, for instance,
the laboratory method, but the application to the higher study oi the sciences of
the first and of the second of these principles? And what is the "natural"
method, which in some jbrm, at least, is slowly, but surely revolutionizing
language teaching, but the application of the third and fourth? The natural
method consists essentially-we do not speak of the details-in an attempt to
relieve the student, as far as may be, of the tedious burden of grammar and to
lead him rapidly to a reading and also, for the modern languages, to a spoken
knowledge of them. ,To reach this desirable end, full use is made of the several
avenues through which a language enters the mind : eyes, ears and speech organs
and not only of the eye, as the custom now passing away would have it. Special
emphasis is placed on speech by the supporters of this method because they hold
that language is primarily and essentially a spoken manifestation of thought and
feeling and not a written one. '
In this connection should be mentioned the highly interesting endeavor of
Prof. John Dewey, of Chicago University, to extend the principles already in use
in the kindergarten to the primary and high school grades. i
If space permitted, we would like to draw the attention of the readers of the
RUBY to the unfortunate fact that of all the departments of education none has
remained so impervious to the guiding inliuences we have singled out as the
theological seminary. A loss of power and of respect is the price the ministers
of religion are paying for the unj ustiflable conservatism of their schools.
The College Man in the Law
I. C. WILLIAMS, 'QI
ROBABLY no profession at this day
Q calls for greater diversity of mental
equipment than the law, In order to
reach and then remain in the front rank of his
profession, it is almost a necessity for the
lawyer to be in touch with all phases of
human knowledge, the past as well as the
present, But to learn everything is mani-
festly impossible. Therefore it becomes
necessary that by some refined system of
training the candidate for honors in this
profession be started aright and upon such
a well-grounded basis as will serve him
throughout his professional career.
The present discussion proceeds upon
the proposition that a thorough collegiate or
university training is more than a useful adjunct to a successful career in the
law 5 in our day and generation, it is a prime necessity.
The indolent collegian in his slip-shod manner may complete his course and
be awarded his degree. In the same manner he passes his examinations and is
admitted to practice at the bar. This is not the fellow of whom we desire to speak.
The student who realizes that it is not all of life simply to live 5 that there is
no time like the present5 that one can never know too much 5 that there is always
room in the front rank 5 that, paradoxically, what we call the inishing of his edu-
cation is only the beginning 5 that only hard work counts 5 that the world puts a
premium on brains and will be satisfied with nothing less 5 he is the individual to
whom a college training will prove of inestimable service when he is called to take
his place in a busy professional life.
It has long been the belief and teaching of those qualified to know, that the
languages of classical antiquity are invaluable helps to sound acquirement in poli-
tics, jurisprudence, and the moral sciences 5 that they assist in the acquisition of
elevated sentiment 5 and that rectitude of judgment and taste are inseparably con-
nected with them. The study of logic and its application to moral dissertations is
believed to be more conducive to the free exercise of ,mental gymnastics than math-
ematics or physical science, neither of which isl to be despised.
Thoroughly adequate learning coupled with sound intellectual discrimination,
the ability rightly to collate and compare, is essential to success in all undertak-
ings, but probably in no branch of learning is one compelled to take more fre-
quent draughts from this perennial spring of Well-being and well-knowing, than in
the practice of the law.
E The study of the general principles of jurisprudence, preliminary to the
entering upon the same as a profession, is coming more and more to be a recognized
and highly-useful part of a college or university curriculum. To the student in-
tending to qualify for the practice of the law a preliminary study of its general
principles will be of much assistance. It will broaden his view, strengthen his
mental grasp, open before him the vistas of an honorable profession, arouse his
intellectual ambition, and in an admirable manner round out his student life. lt
will exert a tendency to qualify him for his practice and assist in removing the
natural timidity which the beginner usually experiences.
It is therefore most certainly true that " tl1e study of the law as a science and
its practice as a profession may be most advantageously pursued through the pre-
liminary aid of a university education." But we are met on the threshold with
the question, " What of those who without the aid of such preliminary training,
become great advocates ? Of those who without a collegiate education were leaders
in the legal thought of their day ? Wliat of Pinckney, Wirt, and John Marshall, who
became greater without it than many have with the privilege ?"
The answer can only be that it is as natural for some men to rise as for smoke
to curl upward. They succeed by unceasing hard work and the sheer force of
natural power. Nothing can repress them, nothing dismay. And the question
might in turn well be asked, " How much more brilliant would their lives have
been had they been accorded the advantages of collegiate training F" f
" The highest standard of character, professional knowledge, and discipline
is exacted by the duties, the responsibilities, and the prestige of the legal profes-
sion," says Mr. Justice Dickman. The well-trained lawyer is needed every-
where. His power and prestige are felt in our legislatures, where the making of
laws is too often left in the hands of those who do the best they know, but who
keep the courts busy undoing what was done either in haste or in ignorance.
The solution of the difficult problems in the social and political world involving
the rights of persons and property, can best be done with the aid of the well-
trained legal mind. The preservation of the form of government, public justice,
private right, social order, attend the trained lawyer at the bar, on the bench, and
in legislative halls. The legal judicial mind is called upon to interpose between
radical socialism and phlegmatic indolence. It becomes a buhfer as it were, les-
sening the effect of attacks upon organized society, while conserving those ideas
which make for stability and permanence in a state.
Mr. Justice Kennedy tells that law must be studied scientifically, in its prin-
ciples and through its history 5 that its history opens vast and varied fields 5 that
as an instrument of mental training, the science of the law is of higher value than
history 5 that the ideas which it inculcates are vital to the health of a free and
intelligent society. " To the lawyer, of all men, knowledge never comes amiss.
Your business is with men. Acquire through a liberal education those wide sym-
pathies and that larger knowledge which will open you a path to the heart and the
understanding. It is an acquisition which like all good things will cost you some
toil and some self-denial g but it will prove your strength in work, your joy in
business, and your solace in the hours of anxiety and sorrowf'
To the well-trained lawyer the opportunities and possibilities of life are with-
out limit. The sphere in which they may be exercised is boundless. The needs
of the present day are continually stretching forth their hands, in an endeavor to
command his counsel and direction. He is the most trusted of all men. He is
the least likely to abuse that trust.
It is said in a preface to F01fz'esczze's Rejborfs that " The grand division of law is
into divine law and the law of nature, so that the study of law in general is the
business of men and angels. Angels as well as men may desire to look into both
the one and the other, but they will never be able to fathom the depths of eitherf'
It therefore becomes the prospective student of the law to make his mind a
storehouse of knowledge, with such an acquaintance with the alfairs of life as may
be acquired only by association with men. He dare not be a recluse. A liberal
education is one of the surest means of success. To this end says Lord Bacon,
" The general counsels, the plots, and marshalling of affairs, come best from those
that are learned 3" and Mr. justice Holmes admonishes that " No man has earned
the right to intellectual ambition until he has learned to lay his course by a star
which he has never seen, to dig by the divining rod for springs which he may
never reach. In saying this I point to that which will make your study heroic?
An Ursinus Churchman in the South
OSEPH L. MURPHY was born in
Davidson County, North Carolina.
T His boyhood days were spent work-
ing on his father's farm and in attending
the public schools of his native county.
He was prepared for college at Bethany
Academy and. at Catawba High School,
now Catawba College. He entered the
Junior Class of Ursinus College in 1883
and was graduated with that Class in
The condition of the Reformed
Church in North Carolina at that time
was discouraging. The pastors in the
State were men grown old in the service
and in the declining years of life. Many
. congregations were shepherdless. Twelve
years had passed and only one young
man from the Classis had given himself to the work of the ministry within the
State. Those who entered this profession sought Helds of labor elsewhere.
Changes incident to the late Civil War were also making themselves felt.
Agriculturalcommunities were fast becoming manufacturing centres. The Old
South with her institutions was passing, and a New South, with better institutions,
was being established, The people, contented for a long time to remain in the
country and cultivate the soil, were Ending homes for themselves in the towns and
cities. The Reformed Church, whose congregations were limited to the country,
had to face a new question. It was to provide for the members moving into the
towns. This condition of things confronted Mr. Murphy upon his graduation,
and before completing his studies in the Seminary, he was challenged with an
overture from the Classis and a call from the'Lincoln charge to begin work in his
native State. Sacrificing hisdesire to graduate fro1n'the Seminary, he accepted
the call to the pastorate of the Lincoln charge and entered upon his work in
The work accomplished in the Classis of North Carolina since th-at time has
attracted the attention of the entire Church and the progress made has been almost
phenomenal. 'Other young men have been attracted to the ministry and to-day the
charges are well supplied with pastors. Old church buildings have been remodeled,
parsonages have been built in almost all the charges, new congregations have been
organized, and commodious church buildings erected in many of the principal
townsg the membership has increased about seventy per centum, and the amount
contributed to benevolent work is nearly three times as great.
The experience of the North Carolina pastor differs materially from that of
the Ursinus Alumnus who has found himself called to shepherd a city congrega-
tion. There is much of the "circuit riding" element in the experience of the
former. He is called to serve congregations located at a considerable distance
from each other and with their membership much scattered. Mr. Murphy has

Work for several years which car-
ries him into the mountain dis-
tricts of his State. The distance,
some forty miles, must be' made
by private conveyance. This has
afforded an opportunity to appre-
ciate fully the work done by the
pioneer ministers of our Church.
ln connection with his pas-
toral duties Mr. Murphy has
found time to devote to the work
of education. Two years, 1887-89
he was acting Professor of Mental
and Moral Science in Catawba
College, Newton, N. C. For four
years he was President of Clare-
mont Female College, Hickory,
N. C. He served two years as
Chairman of the School Board of the Public Schools of Hickory, N. C., and at pres-
ent he is Chairman of the Board ofTrustees of Catawba College and a member of the
Board of Trustees of Claremont College. In 1898 Mr. Murphy spent some time
in Chicago studying the social and religious life of that great city and at the same
time took the Summer Course at the Bible Institute.
He has served his Church in various capacities, At different times he has
been elected President of the Classis and has been a frequent delegate to the
District and General Synods. At present he is entering his twelfth year as pastor
of the Hickory charge, and is the Editor of The Rqforffzed Church Coffivzfhuimz, the
organ of the Reformed Church in North Carolina.

R. MENSCI-FS life was bound up with Ursinus College as a student, as a
professor and as a scientiiic investigator. -
As a student he identined himself heartily with the life of the college,
After having made his choice he entered the institution without reserve, accepting
its limitation with cheerfulness and seeking in the companionship of congenial
spirits the mental stimulation necessary to mental growth. His honest and open
nature responded to the impact of the strong and good men to Whom he recited,
while the ideals of his guileless youth preserved him amid the temptations inci-
dent to college freedom. He gave his heart to his Alma fllazfez' and to his college
companions, and received in return confidence and friendship, the corner-stones
on which the highest type of manhood rears its edifice.
After a course of professional study, a dip i11to medical practice, a course of
university training and several years' experience as a teacher, he was fully per-
suaded that his life ought to be devoted to the work of a college professor and that
his Afma fiff6ZZlE7' was best entitled to his life's fruitage. He returned to Ursinus
witl1 the eagerness and zest of conscious sonship, honoring the makers of the insti-
tution and determined to contribute his part toward making its development worthy
of its parentage and to give it standing among the best colleges of the country. He
neither bargained for his position nor gave his services in the spirit of guidpffo quo.
Hither he had come to do his best, not for himself, but for the college g to live, to
labor and to die for the institution whose cause he had espoused.
His jealousy for the institution made him quick and outspoken against indif-
ferent work on the part of colleague or student, suspicious of professor or alumus
who gave evidence that his heart was self-centered or failed in devotion to the
institution to which his faith and service stood pledged a11d whose name he bore.
It was this spirit of devotion to the welfare and standing of the college that
prompted him to the freeest criticism of what he conceived to be Wrong policies or
unworthy men and made him a safe counselor, even upon questions that enlisted
his personal prejudices. He loved the institution and would, therefore, guard it
against every foe, Within or without, he believed in it and, therefore, labored to
make it Worthy of confidence and respect at home and abroad.
His contributions to the life of the college in its developing period may be
summarized as, first, the full recognition of the modern scientific attitude 3 second,
the acceptance of the laboratory and lecture method of instruction 5 third, the
demonstration of the vital truth that loyalty to an institution is the highest princi-
ple of service and a prerequisite to usefulness in its employ.
Dr. Menschis ideal of the college professor was of the highest order. He
believed that every educated man was in duty bound to pursue his subject to its
ultimate principles 5 that only in research work would he find the real joy of knowi-
edge and the inspiration for its steadfast pursuit, and that the power of the teacher
to stimulate his students is directly proportioned to the exaltation of his own mind
from first contact with facts and principles.
In his pursuit of this ideal he exhibited without alloy his kinship with the elect
in the world of knowledge. At this point his life was most strenuous. To the
realization of this ideal he devoted his time, his money and his health. His stu-
dents met him day by day fresh from the fountain. They felt his touch as life-
contact with knowledge. He imparted to them method and inspiration 3 and his
life is bound to tell in their work. A voice from Harvard University, where one
of his graduates has studied for four years, and one from Johns Hopkins, where
another is in the first year of his graduate study, both bless him for his influence
and for his ideals. It was this chaplet of honor, a steady stream of Ursinus men
engaged in advanced study and original work, that he sought most assiduously to
place upon the brow of his Afma 1WaZe1'.
Dr. Mensch has left behind him an imperishable record of devotion and
achievements, The impress of his views and of his Work are stamped indelibly
upon Ursinus College, which will ever remember him with admiration and grati-
tude as an Alumnus, a Professor and a Scientist.
HENRY T. SPANGLER, '7g,.
Ursinus College. '
HE way they make the poet to write the class's song,
And tell of youths and maidens who have struggled hard and long
Is to nominate two or three of those who've hammered verse before,
Then hail him Inspired Poet who makes the largest score.
And so it is-no other reason-that within a printed hook,
Jingles made by rocky poets attract a passing look 3
At least 'tis so with th' undersigned, a lad who longed to see
lf he could rhyme, and thus he fell on this catastrophe.
Now midst the rush of studies he must read up laws of verse,
He must walk by silent rivers with calm Nature as his nurse,
Till he sees the frisky chipmunk scamper over ivyed wall,
Till he catch some inspiration from the rippling water-fall.
One hope he sees in verses-that poets long ago
Were given license to express whatever they might know
Or feel-emotion, that's the thing that makes th' eternal hard,
The gushing soul that sings in melody unmarred.
In melody that streameth forth from passion's burning soul,
And points forever upward to the spirit's blest control 3
The sense takes hold of higher things than self or selfish ends,
And strives, and reaches forth, and e'en for heaven contends.
Of such things he may think and dream in silent waking thought,
And rage, and frenzied, trample the stern prosaic naught.
But to the task-a Worthy one-there are worthy things to tell,
Here are noble men and women on whose deeds one well may dwell 1
Young BILLY ANsoN, little man-no sport-
Must head this list, e'en though he's rather short.
The next in line is our judicial PUCK,
A much-beloved, but most-abused duck.
Grave GRABER-when all's said and done-
He's Melancholia's melancholy' son.
HAINES, chief head guy, with dignatorial air,
Dark, piercing eyes, to maidens quite a snare.
And then there's BEEFY, clothed in lordly mien,
Such towering 11z'lzz'lness was scarce e'er seen.
The PORT, love-sick, thunder-struck, a freak,
For one more such a long way you might seek,
DTALLIE LARos, small and snail-like, less,
Believes that study is a weariness.
PETERS, compound of love and self, a chap,
A sometime Olevian visitor and yap.
POORMAN, gaodman, always does wl1at's right.
Precocious in his grammar, in banquets tight.
A business man is RAPP-his life is Lab
And Math-with girls he seldom cares to dab.
Dark-haired and dusl-ly RUTH, a girl's insight
In choosing him would not be far from right.
Well, here comes SIWITH, " Hello, there, old girl, BEERS,
Say fellows, here he is, let's give three cheers."
But now my page illumines, light shines 'round,
Fall, Verser, lie low upon this hallowed ground 1
A XVOMAN comes-blest be the glorious name,
And blest be SHE who brings this magic train.
So much for roasts, and stabs, and thrusts, tl1e things that make life gay,
My Muse has whispered to me, "There are other things to say."
" But who art thou, O lyric Muse, to me a love-sick boy,
Muses are women-that's enough to rob me of my joy."
I've nothing common with the Muse, she hasn't made me poet,
Votes told me what I was-and alas, I didn't know it.
Our Class is theme enough to spin out endless scho -lboy rhymes,
If we should tell of suppers, banquets, rushes-always jolly times.
The time we beat 1901 on the graveled base-ball field,
Lgoz and 1904 supremacy did yield,
And how we drew up rules for babes and how we pushed them through,
And on the college foot-ball team ive of us wear the U.
In base-ball teams, and gym, and field, and basket-ball we've played.
No task or du'y was too hard, in none were we dismayed.
Had I 11ot made the solemn Muse depart in high disdain,
I'd sing a paean over thee, my class, but now, tis vain.
And yet 'tis well, old Brown and White shall Float while we have strength to give,
Dear Class, by past and future deeds thy glorious memory shall live.

" One venturous game my hand has won to-day-
Another, gallants, yet remains to play."
RESUME of organized athletic effort at our institution covers but a relatively
short period of the college's history. From the time of the formal opening
, of the college, 1870, various sports and athletic diversions have received
their share of attention 3 but no responsible controlling body was recognized in
athletics until the organization of the Athletic Association 'in 1887. .
During the earliest years of our institution the attitude of the college authori-
ties toward athletics was decidedly neutral, and more often repressive. As a con-
sequence, the hrst attempt at organized athletic elfort resolved itself into a slow,
uncertain process with the brunt of the burden resting heavily, and almost exclu-
sively, upon the student body. A few games were played in base-ball,from season
to season, but according to no set schedule, and subject to no definite athletic
regimen. A tennis club was organized in 1888, and this, together with base-ball,
furnished the main outlet for athletic activity until the appearance of foot-ball in
the fall of 1893. That year witnessed the installation of a new President of Ursi-
nus College, and a broader and more liberal policy began to characterize every
department of the institution. Athletics, for the first time in the college's history,
received its proper share of recognition at the hands of the college authorities.
Prior to 1895, very few of the base-ball games were played with college teams.
In that year athletics came under the combined control of the college authorities
and of the student body, by the organization and institution of a responsible
Athletic Committee-an executive department of the Athletic Association-com
sisting of five representatives: a member of the faculty, one of the board of
directors, a representative of the alumni, and two members of the student body.
The present Athletic Committee consists of six members, according two repre-
sentatives to the faculty. The new controlwas confronted by many difficulties.
The funds necessary to support and conduct properly such a system were derived
mainly from personal pledges of the students and faculty, and from voluntary con-
tributions on the part of the alumni. A deficit at the close of each season was a
common matter, and the task of giving the athletics of the college a firm basis
proved to be no light one.
The first season of base-ball scheduled under the present governing system was
played in 1895 5 and four out ofthe seven games played were won. The season of
'96 was not so successful in point of the number of games won, although better
games were played upon the home grounds than during the previous seasons. As
early as 1894, a strong reserve team in base-ball appeared on the Held and began to
win a large number of its scheduled games. In 1897 the majority of the games
for the Hrst team were scheduled and played with colleges of recognized athletic
standing. Although no signal victories characterized this season, the work on the
diamond, as a whole, was more satisfactory than that of the preceding year. Many
things helped to enhance the general athletic standard, and our base-ball relations
with other colleges were gradually extended and strengthened.
The season of '98 was eminently satisfactory and helped much to give Ursinus
her proper ranking in the athletic world. Nine out of the fourteen contests were
won, and our old rival, Franklin and Marshall, was defeated, together with such
colleges as Rutgers and Dickinson. Much of this success, as well as that of the
succeeding season, was due to the able pitching and management of Captain Laros,
S. T., ,QQ. The seasons of 1900 and 1901 reflected great credit upon both teams.
An important feature in the successes of last season, 1901, was the excellent pitch-
ing of Townsend, '05 5 and with the auspicious opening of the present season, a
bright outlook for the future of base-ball is ours.
Foot-ball has in many ways-and not undeservedly-become the most popular
sport among us. The first team at Ursinus was organized in the Fall of 1893, with
F. Steckel, '96, as captain. The seasons of '93, and '94 included a few games with
other colleges, and witnessed some overwhelming defeats 5 but the game was being
learned and valuable experience gained, which laid the foundation for future suc-
cesses. In 1895, the Erst professional coach, Cres-
singer, University of Pennsylvania, was engaged, and,
under the direction of the recently-organized Athletic
Committee, a marked advance was made in foot-ball.
A majority of deteats was again experienced, but a
decided strengthening was noticeable over the preced-
' ' ing seasons. As captain of the team in 1894, and
later as a member ofthe Athletic Committee, E. VV.
Lentz, '95, contributed very materially to the upbuild-
ing and perfecting of a stable athletic goverment.
Much of the subsequent success of foot-ball was due to
his personal efforts and interests,-to such an extent that he has been accorded the
title of " Father of Foot-ball at Ursinus". Owing to a lack of financial support
the following season, 1896, witnessed little advance 5 and in the face of the many
disheartening circumstances, the gallant players and their captain, Shelly, '97, are

to be commended. The season of '97 soon showed brighter prospects. Through
the untiring efforts of Captain Waltmaii, ,9Q, a strong team was brought upon the
field. An enthusiasm, hitherto unknown, began to manifest itself among faculty
and students. The services of Dr. Off, University of Pennsylvania, were secured
as coach, and through his personal work and infiuence the athletic momle of the
entire team was raised and strengthened. The unfavorable scores of former sea-
sons were largely reduced. New life and vigor were infused into the athletic
spirit of the institution, and foot-ball at Ursinus received " that lease of life which
has brought it to its present high level."
The results were seen in the following season, 1898, which was, in many
ways, the most successful Ursinus has known in foot-ball. Seven out of nine
games were won, one tied, and one lost. Henceforth Ursinus was received on an
equal footing with her sister colleges. Foot-ball, together with other dominant
types of athletics, had at last become a tradition-ever a powerful element in the
athletic life of a student body. The seasons of 1899 and 1900 were not so suc-
cessful, The 'large number of inexperienced players, and lack of unity among the
old players, weakened the teams sensibly and added but few laurels to the vic-
tories of former seasons. Last season, 1901, saw Ursinus renewing her old form.
Much of the season was characterized by strong team play and by individual
work among the players, and the brilliant work of Long, '02, Lentz, ,O2, and
Roth, '03, merits especial mention.
1901 marked a new departure in the athletic government of the institution,
in the adoption by the college authorities of the graduate system of direction in
athletics-a system adopted by many of the Eastern colleges and universities.
The brilliant and successful issue of the past season has demonstrated the wisdom
of this new step, and speaks highly for the efficiency of the present incumbent,
E. E. A. Kelley, 7OI, whose loyalty and activity in athletics during his under-
graduate days won for him the conspicuous honor of first Graduate Director of
Athletics. No slight determining factor in the victories of the Varsity has been
the strong WOTK of the Reserves. The gradual strengthening and perfecting of
this necessary and valuable adjunct is one of the features of the present graduate
system of direction.
The great progress made within a relatively short period in athletics at
Ursinus may be seen by a glance at the comparative scores 011 pages 106 and 118.
Through the firm, persistent efforts of Dr. Barnard, with the cooperation of Pro-
fessor Gummere, baneful elements have been thoroughly stamped out, and a
standard for pure, bwzajfdc athletics has been fixed and maintained for the student
body, and thus the governing system has been brought to its present high effi-
ciency and inliuence.
' GENERAL ATHLETICS
Basket-ball-a distinctive feature of athletic life among our " co-eds."--has
come into prominence within the last two seasons, 1900 and 1901. Inter-class
games, tennis tournaments and held sports on commencement day-all indicative
of the prevailing trend and spirit of the institution-have been the source of much
pleasure and entertainment. Relay races, gymnastic exhibitions and sports
organized and unorganized, have all added their share to the general fund of
athletic spirit about the college. The loyal, undivided support of students and
faculty has made possible the maintenance of our present high standard, and has
called forth aspirations to furthcr victories. Increased interest and more liberal
support and encouragement on the part of the alumni are especially due to the
athletics of our college. Students of the past should strive together, as a unit,
with the students of the present for the extension and perfection of our athletic
system, and thus conserve and advance the best interests of their Alvzza flfafer.
Ursinus, we may now assert, has passed her novitiate period in athletics and
stands ready to defend and battle for the traditions that have grown up about her.
A general evolution in athletic sentiment has 'made possible the successes of
to-day in college athletics. Though it is but a few years since our college first
felt this impetus, true to her liberal ideals, Ursinus has thrown her influence into
this new field. And now, together with her sister institutions, she lends her
energies to the upbuilding of American youth and the perfecting of American

HEN your jaws are aching fearful
And you feel just every way,
And you're in the very bluest kind of dumps,
It makes you feel so cheerful
To have folks smile and say
Don't worry. You've o11ly got the mumps!
NVith your face shaped like a pumpkin
Of the round pie-baking sort,
And your neck a half-peck measure, up-side-down,
You may look like Tony Lumpkin,
Goldsn1ith's hulking, burly sport,
But you're far more idiotic if you frown.
So you grin and bear it sadly
When they say you're " picking up' ,
And suggest you as an ad. for breakfast foods 3
But you wonder rather madly
VVhether things will even up
S0 that you can pay them back in their own goods.
For with things that foster charity
You can not class the mumps,
If you've been there, you well know the reason why
Patient moods are quite a rarity,
You're grurnpiest of grumps
And the world and all that's in it seems awry.

N sequestered retirement, distant from the quiet street, hidden in a cluster of tall
pine trees, and reached only by a long avenue densely shaded by the inter-
twining branches of maples and lindens, stands the Hall of Olevia. Her resi-
dence was once known as " The Convent ". This name has disappeared from the
Ursinus vocabulary, but the mysterious air and deep seclusion still remain. The
approach of an outsider is retarded by strange forebodings, and an entrance
through the carefullygguarded door is finally effected only with great difhculty.
The secrets of this sacred abode are revealed to few besides its inmates, hence,
these hints, dropped unwittingly, may suggest to none but tl1e imaginative mind
what it means to live with Miss Olevia.
The interior of the Hall is cozy and suggestive of many pleasant hours.
Ursinus offers special inducements to girls, and has been guided by the principle
of convenience in furnishing their dwelling place. Hence, this year the faculty
kindly ordered a " screen " for the benefit of evening callers. The appropriate-
ness of having a sofa in the reception room is strenuously commended by a certain
Soph. when he tells of his "initiation ".
, U Do not talk so loud, yon'll waken the baby."
One of the most unique features of the domicile is the highly-complicated tap
system-not in the sense of liquid refreshments, but ofa call bell. It was first
tried the night of the " Grand Concert ". Detailed and careful explanation had
been given, and the girls of the Mathematical-Physical Group were using every
spare minute to HX the formula in the minds of their sisters. Suddenly the front
door bell jingled. The girls rushed breathless into the halls. " Tap, tap, tap."
That meant third floor. "Tap," A dead silence. "Tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap,
tap, tap, tap." Room IQ owned the lucky girl, who marched triumphantly
downstairs, laughing to herself in a satisfied way. The success ofthe system was
evident from that hour, and on "nights out " the continuous ringing of the bells
is the means of entertainment both for the 'f maydes " and for the baby.
The Hall has been the scene of many strange spectacles. Hallowelen marks
the height of the supernatural life of the place. It may be a phantom party. The
room is dimly lighted by pumpkin faces peering out from among the shocks of
corn and Autumn leaves, while dismal ghosts silently pass up and down in melan-
choly file as if walking on the banks of the Styx. Or it may be a general mas-
querade. But ghost stories never fail to crown the enchantment of the evening.
Seated around a large iron kettle, in which burns a wierd, glimmering light,
throwing a ghastliness over the ashy faces, such tales are toldas
" VVould harrow up thy soul, freeze thy young blood,
Make thy two eyes, like stars, start from their sphere."
There have been baby tea-parties, faculty receptions, parties for the different
classes, and not least are counted the "fads after hours " whose secrets are not
revealed, but a good-fellowship exists at these feasts, with fudge and olives as
" Do not talk so loud, you'll waken the baby."
Neither is the true Ursinus spirit lacking among the fair Olevias. Wheii the
celebration of an athletic victory is arousing the enthusiasm ofthe boys, the girls
clamber up to the high window and jump out on the roof. Here their songs and
cheers ring out through the night air until the last spark of the bonnre in the dis-
tance dies out, and the echo of the "red, old gold and black" faintly creeps
across the tennis courts and is lost. The Hall of Olevia is contributing her share
in the making of Ursinus traditions.

DR GRIMM: "Mr. Stoner, why do you stick up your nose at me whenever I ask you
a question ? "
STONER : " Oh, because I'm trying to get those French nasals."
There's Gracie the simple,
There's Gracie the slick,
There's Gracie the agile,

But the only Gracie that can sail up the creek

A Biological Excursion

After the class had come to a little stream, Dr. Murlin instructed them to catch everything
living. Hobson immediately grabbed one of Hoffsommers's legs and Roth started after a cow,
while " Beers " sprinted after butterfiies. " Fats " proved himself the most gallant by helping
" Dolly " over the fences and other rough places-a beautiful illustration of " Ich bin die sturdy
oak und du bist die clinging vine." " Billy" Ansonls time was taken up in looking for
" hellganntesf' while Graber was busy quizzing the U Prof." It is suiiicient to say that Peters
carried the luggage while Poorman hunted eggs. But we dare not forget " Puck", alias
" Shiny". He came late and joined the crowd away out in the woods. Only once did he let
his sweet voice be heard. Having found what he supposed was a rare and extraordinary
member of the vegetable kingdom, he hurried to the " Prof." and asked what it was. For a
moment the "Prof." eyed him, suppressing laughter as well as he could under the circum-
stances, and then said 1 " Mr. Gutshall, that's garlic."

Extracts From Memorablei Addresses

Then a discussion arose as to who should do the putting-up act, as every one wanted to
stand guard outside, this being considered the post of danger. At last, Townsend, with a b-r-1'
in his voice and a wave of the hand, said :
" Cease, cease your disputations. In such a momentous crisis.as this, I, I alone shall assume
the perilous position and the hazardous enterprise. I am especially predestined for the under-
takingg for my grandiloquence will at once precipitate an ignominious retreat on the part of
any vile intruder."
So they all fell back before his oratory, except W'entz, who muttered 1
" Oh go, rub your head against a shell-bark ! l'
CHAPEL TALK I

CHAPEL TALK II
" The Board of Health of the Borough of Collegeville, herewith presents its compliments
and requests all of you-young and old, poor and rich, thick and thin-to have your arms
scratched."-"On Vaccination," December 5, 1901.
"Tommy, the Knockerf' after the above: "Rid Rage! Bleeding Hearts! Grinning
Death's heads ! Fire and Brimstwue! Sore arms and-arms! Superstition l Folly and
Ignorance !-that such as these should be hatched into existence by Vaccination at Ursinus l
Oh I Dark Ages, and Rack, and Torture, and Pillory, and Papal Inquisition, come and take us
to the sweet forgetfulness of your abodes, where Smallpox and dread Vaccination are not ! "
CHAPEL TALK III
" As Spring approaches and the grass begins to sprout, I hope all the little boys and girls
will carefully keep in the well-appointed walks and avenues of the campus g for, to tell you the
truth, that's why they were laid out."-" On the Tender Grass," March 24, 1902.
CHAPEL TALK IV
" Some boys may think it smart to put a cow in a recitation room, and perform other
similar tricks Q but I have good reason to believe and affirm that such tricks have long ago been
designated as effete and antiquated. There was a time when we had calves in our colleges, but
that time has long since passed by."

I sat me clown and thought profound-
This maxim wise I drew 1
It's easier far to like a girl
Than make a girl like you.
A Chemical Baby
Dr. Barnard was telling the class in United States history that children find queer names
for things. " YVhy," said lie, " our baby calls water 'ho ',-I guess because the chemical term
for water is H2 O."
Blest be the tie that binds
Krebs to his neckties
Bardy to Kutztown
Smith to his pipe
Peters to Cupid
McConnell to his valiant steeds
Shady to Whitey
Keiter to his tire escapes
All students are hereby requested to call a "spade" a "spade", and to pronounce
" c-a-t-c-h " as " ketch ". -rf"
By Order of the English Department.
I A Mathematical Application
A girl's conduct at Olevian varies inversely as the square of the distance from the matron's
room to her own. ,
Butz thinks he will hire out his nose for a hatrack.
McConnell guesses he will help paint the town ,red with his.
Fisher proposes to turn his into a toboggan-slide, or " shoot the Chute".
Krebs is contemplating the idea of putting his on the track to enable some lucky horse to
win out by a nose.
