MATTHEW BEARDWOOD, A.M., M.D.
mdllbkw BQGYGWOOG, H. Ili., m. D.
iii ATTHEW BE.ARDWQO.D was born at Cape May, New Jersey, on the 22nd of June, l87l. . His father-was
1 engaged in business in this city and was a member of the Select Councils. When the subject of this sketch was but
three years of age, his parents removed to Philadelphia, where his father engaged in the cloth finishing business in
the manufacturing district of Fairmount, Philadelphia, and later-at Kensington, Philadelphia.
Dr. Beardwood received his early education in the public schools of Philadelphia. In his seventeenth year, he
received the A.B. degree from the Central High School, Philadelphia, after his completion of the regular four years' course.
Five years later he received the degree, A.M., from the same institution. During the years, 1890 and 1891, he specialized
in Chemistry at the University of Pennsylvania. In 1891 he matriculated in medicine at the Medico-Chirurgical College,
under the preceptorship of Prof. James M. Anders, and in 1894 was graduated from that institution with the degree, M.D.
Within -a very short time after receiving his degree, he was appointed Resident Physician at the Medico-Chirurgical Hos-
pital. where he also served the internship for one year, IS94-l895. ln IB95 he was elected Lecturer on Anatomy at the Train-
ing School for Nurses, in connection with the Medico-Chirurgical Hospital and simultaneously received the appointment as As-
sistant in Gynecological Surgery at the same institution. In 1896 he was elected Instructor in Chemistry and Medical Physics
and three years later appointed Lecturer on Clinical Chemistry at the Medico-Chirurgical College. .ln l900 he became
Adjunct Professor of Clinical Chemistry and Toxicology in the Medico-Chirurgical College. ln l9l4 the same institution ap-
pointed him Professor of General Chemistry and Toxicology, which position he still holds.
Dr. Beardwood was called to Ursinus College in l903, at which time he accepted the chair of Chemistry. He is still
engaged in his medical practice, but his college duties' confine this to office work. He is quite frequently called into the courts
of Philadelphia, where he gives testimony as an expert chemist.
He is affiliated with the following organizations: The American Chemical Society, the American Medical Association,
the Pennsylvania State Medical Society and the Philadelphia County Medical Society. He is also a member of the Rox-
borough l. odge of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. For the past ten years and at the present time he is ruling elder in
the Presbyterian Church. A
During his entire career at Ursinus, Dr. Beardwood' has gained the respect and esteem of the entire student bodyg how-
ever, he is best known and appreciated by the students of his own department. The study of Chemistry is conceded to be one of
the most difficult in the college, but, due to the personal interest which Dr. Beardwood takes in each one of his students, the
course thus presented is made both attractive and profitable. He is widely known as a scholar, a Christian gentleman, a pro-
fessor of great breadth of culture, an instructor of such kindness and ,patience that he has won the friendship and honor of all
who know him. . ' ' Q
To college friends of many years, The scholar and the athlete here
To those gone far away, Are given proper praiseg
To those who linger with us still, Each lofty standard of the school
Qur life We here portray. Our class has helped to raise.
Nineteen Sixteen ever loyal, To you, kind friends, this hook we leave
United in each task, And trust that you will find
l-las striven earnestly to leave Each page with fondest me1n'ries filled,
True record of its past. Of richestfrarest kind.

When the shades of evening gather,
Ursinus students hie
To the soft, green-swarded campus,
For a time our books laid by,
And the parting rifts of sunlight,
As they linger soft and long,
Shed a hallowed gleam of gladness

Senior Qllass Bistorv
F TER toiling nearly four years in Ursinus, accumulating for the mind those treasures which must forever be ours, we
have come to the last lap of our college careers. It is a source of joy to the members of the graduating class that their
I f school days are rapidly drawing to a close, and they will soon be ready to enter the practical work of life. Yet they
are DOI unminclful Of the pleasant times spent and the friendships formed at dear old Ursinus. It is with no small
degree of apprehension that they must leave Bomberger's Hclasgie halls," For many of them the past four years have been
powerful factors in moulding their lives, broadening their horizons, and making them better equipped for the real work of life.
The characteristic quality of the class of 1915 has m0rc than compensated for the deficiency in quantity. Uur band has
been few but true. Not once, in all our brilliant, yet consistent, record, has anything been "pulled overn on our class. Small
in number, we were able to make creditable showings in the class rushes and in the inter-class Football, Baseball, and Track
events. Our class has been endowed with its share of scholastic, musical, oratorical, literary, and athletic ability, and has con-
tributed generously to the various activities and organizations about the college.
Since entering college in the F all of l9l l, the present Senior class has shown its ability to do things. As Freshmen, they
courageously performed all the honest tasks imposed upon them by the athletic managers. Q-ur Sophomore year was notable for
several reasons. It was during this year that "Steve," with the skill of a veritable Sherlock Holmes, ascertained the where-
abouts of our class President, and rescued him from the.Norristown residence, in which the Freshmen had him incarcerated,
thereby saving 'Spikei' from the ignominy of presiding at the G'Frosh', banquet. As Sophomores, we abandonedhthe traditional,
albeit foolish, custom of breaking up the Fresh-Junioriushinen and gave the Seniors a "shine" instead. With the arrival of the
Junior year came upper' class responsibilities. We naturally assumed that dignity which is befitting persons of this high station
in college life. ln addition to educating the 1917 class, attending chapel, classeshin Philosophy, and library culture, and writ-
ing term papers, we found time to edit a Ruby of high literary excellence. S ,
At last the Senior year has come with its great possibilities and responsibilities of leadership. To us it has more than ordi-
nary significance. Work has been interspersed with pleasures. One of the fondest ideals of our college course was attained when
we gathered in the Banquet Hall of Hotel Walton, in Philadelphia, on that December evening, and partook of that sumptuous
spread and listened to the delightful rehearsal of past achievements and the prophecies of the future.
Commencement has come almost too soon, and, as we are about to leave our Alma Mater, let us decide to take with us into
the world the spirit of Ursinus. and no matter how widely separated our paths may be, we feel certain that our classmates will
cherish the fondest memories- of dear old U. 34 S

Sunset advances. College days
Soon will be oier-like a dream
So they fade. These days, so short they seem,
Pass through my memory, silent and bright,
Like phantoms that come and pass in the night
Sunrise---ah! how rosy and bright!
Happy those days, our hearts how light
Did not the whole world before us lie
For us to conquer if We but tried?
So We ourselves to the task applied.
The sun has set. Another day
Dawns. A life appears with aspects stern,
There are many lessons for us to learn.
And now each one must stand the test
And to him that labors will come success.
So, on the threshold of life's race,
Let us look the World straight in the face,
And seek a higher, a nobler place.
And We will conquer in the fight,
With thou, Ursinus, our guiding light.

of the "Frosh,,' which afforded us much amusement, even though it appeared to some of the "f7reshies" to be "out of the bounds
of reason," had such an effect upon their undeveloped craniums that they forgot to paint their numerals. .
But the best must eventually go down to defeat, and so, to give the Freshmen a little inspiration for future effort, we bowed
to them in the inter-class Basket Ball game. However, in order that they might not ascend to too lofty heights, we accepted
their uinvitationn to a Baseball game' on Patterson Field. After seven innings of cavorting upon the green, the class of I9I6,
through the masterful pitching of Captain Kennedy and the heavy hitting of the entire team, was again victorious.
However, we would not have our readers infer that we devoted all of our first two years to inter-class activities, to the utter
neglect of our social and intellectual life. On the contrary, we have always taken a very active part in all the college activities.
We have contributed largely to bothsocieties, to the Glee Club and to the various other organizations about the college, while
our class has maintained' a record for scholarly attainment. During our Freshman year,,we showed our college spirit by work-
ing hard and incessantly in order to attain that goal which is the object of all who enter these classic halls.
Now, that we have become Juniors, it behooves us to assume that dignity which is becoming to upper classmen. We have
given up those things which were characteristic of our childhood days, and are devoting our efforts more earnestly than ever to
real intellectual work, spending much of our time in the writing of term papers and in solving the deep problems of Philosophy.
We have, as a whole, proved ourselves to be efficient in all college activities. On the athletic field, in the class room, in our
Literary Societies or at some social function, the class of l9I6 has always been prominently represented, and we now eagerly
await the time when we shall go out from our dear Alma Mater, true to our motto, "ln Omnia Paratusf'

R "A little nonsense now and then."
OHN ARTHUR ADAMS, the "Pretty Boyn of our class, first yelled. for his milk bottle at West Sunbury, Pa., on August IS,
1891. In -this peaceful little village Arthur passed. the first years of his life. When he had arrived at the proper age, he was sent
to the public schools. Havingcompleted 'his preliminary education, he was graduated with honors. His parents, deeming it wise
that the education of this mischief-loving youth should not cease at this point, he was sen-t to the West Sunbury Academy, from which
school he graduated in l909. The next two years were spent out in the world, learning som-e of the mc-re practical lessons of Qife.
Arthur now decided to prepare for college and in keeping with his resolve he entered Slippery
Rock State Normal School, from which institution he was graduated in l9l2. '
"Babe," as he is generally called by his associates, came to Ursinus in the Fall of that year.
Upon arriving in town he endeavored to make Shreiner Hall his place of abode for the night but
was thwarted in his attempt by the quick action of the 'preceptress. He finally landed in Free-
land, where he still continues to hang his hat. "Babe" 'connected himself with Father Hirsch's
Bird Seed Group and got down to work. . In the class room he listens very attentively and usually
handles the shovel with sufficient dexterity to get away with his recitations. A
Arthur has distinguished himself to a considerable degree as a society man, having attended
Hshinesn at both Olevian and Shreiner Halls. He also traveled with the "400" of Collegeville
and Evansburg during his first two years at school. This year he 'has registered for Library III
and IV, and thus far has only two cuts. His melodious voice can be heard almost any hour of ,
the day, Hoating over the campus, frightening the birds and causing his roommate, "Grind Stugief'
to cry out for mercy. '
In the college activities we find Arthur a valuable asset. Zwinglian Literary Society, the
Historical-Political Group, the Y. M. C. A., and the 'Varsity baseball team, all come in for a
due portion of his consideration. He has always been a loyal member of his class and in recog-
nition of his ability he was elected President of the class' during his Sophomore year.
After Arthur receives his "sheep-skin," he expects to teach and our heartiest wishes for 'his '
success shall go with him. - I I

' grammar school, and in clue time was graduated.
Realizing that he could never earn a living, much less accumulate a fortune, by common ordinary labor our hero decideo. o
further his education. Consequently he entered Collegeville High School, and, after attending for
a number of years, was welcomed into the precincts of Ursinus, in the Fall of 191 1. During his
first year he attended strictly to his scholastic duties, which necessitated his most careful atten-
tion. Being heavily burdened with conditions, he found his wo-rl: rather irlcsome and at the end
of the year he decided that it was unwise 'to be hampered throughout one's college course by over-
worlc. Acting according to -this dictate, he en tered the Norristown l-ligh School as a Senior in
the Fall of 1912, and was graduated from that institution the following Spring.
During this year, Miles collected all his heretofore unclassified knowledge, and moulded it
into a form that would enable him to complete his college course in a short time, and allow him a
little diversion on the side. So, in the F all of 1913, "Aus" re-entered our noble institution, and
has been giving a good account of himself, not only scholastically, but also athletically., F or the
past two years he has played a splendid game for the Reserve football team.
Not only in college athletics has "Aus" especially made himself felt, but also in outside
activities as well. He has staunchly guarded station "A" for the St. l..uke's Baseball Club of
Trappe during the last few years, and his teammates, in appreciation of his efforts, 'have elected
him Captain for the season of 1915. Aside from this, "Aus" belongs to the St. l..ulce's Glee
Club, and is a reliable first tenor on the College Glee Club. ln the class room Miles has also
made his presence felt. l-le finds sufficient time, however, to "shine" occasionally, and has proved
himself a social lion, both here at college and on the various Glee Club trips. 'l-le has decided
to follow business as a profession, and we can only predict success for him in his undertaking.
ILES PHOWETH AUSTERBERRY was born at Skulville, N. J., on December 31 1893 Here he spent his early child oo
sq, fl days in happiness and innocence At an early age his parents moved to -that wonderful town of Trappe Pa over which Zeus

After due process of time, "Jake," our hero, was sent to school. When he had absorbed all that the public schools could offer,
he proceeded, during the next few years, to impart it to the growing genera-tions of his community. g
Finding, however, that they wanted to know too much, "Jake" resolved to drink, once again, of t
the Fountain of Knowledge. Accordingly, he went to Union Seminary, from which he was grad:
uated in the Spring of l9l2. It was at this time that "Jake" felt a call to alleviate the phys-
ical sufferings of humanity and, with this object in view, ambled to Ursinus in the F all of l9lZ.
To secure the proper training for a future lVl.D., he entered the hardening environment of
the ChemicaldBiological C-roup and the "Doghouse," and, while there, aroused the feelings of
the Irish element by persisting in singing, "Die W'acht am Rheinf' In his Sophomore year, "Jake"
moved to the East Wing to be among the nministers' bunchf' and has remained ever since, ex-
cept to return to the "Doghouse," in his Junior year, for a short stay to get rid of the mumps.-
ln his Junior year, he found the jockey business of the Classical Group too. strenuous, so he

As a student, Hjakei' is a hard, consistent worker. He is an active member of Zwinglian,
being one of her spirited debaters. He has allied himself with the athletics of Ursinus and holds
positions on the Scrub football and baseb-all teams. As a member of the College Kitchen and
"Big Nine" Club, he has distinguished himself by reason of his ravenous appetite. "Jake" took '
a plunge into the social world in his Freshman year and at that time was on "The Level," but
since then he has contented himselfuwi-th being a "once in a while." As he peddles pots and
pans in the coal regions during his Summer vacation, there may be a reason.
After completing his course at Ursinus, "Jake" expects to enter the teaching profession. In
this we predict and wish him great success. '
franklin Rav liemisderfer
"There is mischief in this man."
A HIS brawny "sturdy stocker" first made his appearance on this terrestrial ball in l895 at Greencastle, Pa. Having performed
r,f'g . Q
the unique feat of acquiring the art of speech during the first week of his existence, it was thoughtiappropriate to include in his
,,,R, cognomen the name o-f our leading statesman, Benjamin Franklin, and accordingly he was named Franklin Ray Bemisderfer. I-le
received his early education in the public schools of Greencastle, Pa., and having made a creditable record, it was deemed advisable
by his parents to send him to Shippensburg State Normal School. In the short space of two years he acquired ali. the knowledge
that the institution offered, both in class room and dance hall, and hence, under the guidance of
"Doon Omwake, he was registered as a student at Ursinus in the Fall of l9lZ.
As an athlete "Bemis" has made a reputation on several occasions. On the tennis courts he
has shown his ability, even to the extent of playing doubles and love sets with the fair sex. We
also find him playing guard on the Scrub eleven. Not only is he an athlete, but also a student.
To omit the class room work from his life sketch would be a fault for which the biographer could
not be too severely censured. Franklin has always been a good student, but he is far from what
we might term a grind, for mu'ch of his time is spent in develop-ing the aesthetic side of his nature.
Although he has not been captivated by the charms of any of the fair maidens at Ursinus,
it is a well recognized fact that he is somewhat of a social celebrity in his home town, for he often
relates of his Summer experiences. I-le enjoys singing, h.is favorite song being, "I want a little,
bungalow, just big enough for me and Rosefnlf' Franklin is a member of the English-l-i1s-
torical Group, a staunch supporter and ardent worker in Schaff, a valued and prominent member
of the Y. M. C. A., and group adviser of the Freeland Hall Hebrew Culture Gro-up. He 'has
proved himself a loyal classmate, and this, together with his other good qualities, has won for i
him the admiration of his classmates.
Franklin is looking forward to taking up the profession of teaching, in which we can pre-
dict nothing but a bright and promising future for this young man.-

fig? Her early life IS a blank but from ancient documents we have discovered that she moved to Norristown when qui-te young, and
there entered the public schools to gain some "larnin'." In 1908 she passed into the high school. While pursuing her studies
here, "Peg,' was very demure but, nevertheless, s'he never failed to surround herself with a host
of friends. Throughout her high school life she was very a-ttentive to her studies but, in her
third year, she was induced to become a "Russelite." This has since required a great deal of
her time and, although this appellation still clings, she never delves into intricacies, but rather
plays indifferently with its principles, and takes up more ardently the art of music. In this we
find her very proficient and we have but to hear her .bursting forth, with that far away look in
her eyes, especially in the song, "The Miller Who Liv-es on the Deeg Oh! That is the Fellow
for Me," to realize her skill in expression.
In 1912 she was graduated from high school, and, in selecting an institution for her higher
education, Baltimore was chosen. Reluctantly she prepared for college, for her backwardness and
love for home and friends made her fretful of the future. Two weeks were enough for her, and
at the end of that time she was marching back to Norristown with a happy heart. In a short
time she decided for herself and chose "Old Ursinusf' For her first two years "Peg,' was a
day student and, as a result, few of the boarding students got to know her personally.
We now come to her Junior year. She must have been favorably impressed with the "nuns
and nunneryn on Sixth Avenue. for Shes decided, for this year at least, to join them, and through
the mediation of "Sister Beans" she was ushered into the "Third Floor Big League."
"Peg" has Chosen teaching as her profession, and we can, holding in mind her many com-
mendable qualities and her inborn talent, see in store for her none but a brilliant future.
lleltov Fritscb Derr
"Who does the best his circumstance allows,
Does well, acts noblyg angels could no more."
EROY FRITSCH DERR, whose physiognomy adorns this page, first practised hls vocal ability in the burg now known as
Tamaqua, on the twenty-eighth of April, l892. Being a bright lad and looking very promising to hrs parents they reared him and
get soon sent him to school. After he had mastered the subjects of the lower grades, he proudly entered the Tamaqua High School
and in l909 was graduated from that institution with honors. During the next three years he assumed the responsible positron of
Assistant to the Superintendent of the P. 6: R. Railway.
Being unable to further resist the lure of a higher education, he decided to come to college
alnd to cast his lot with the I9l6 class. In his Freshman year, Derr was a social lion and often
pined that "he had but one wife to give to his Alma Mater." Needless to say, he has always
maintained this reputation, and every "shine" finds him there as the honored guest.
In his' Sophomore year, he especially distinguished ,himself in the class light -and baseball
game, coming away from bo-th with the ivy crown of success upon his head. ,But, kind reader,
pause for an instant! A change took place. Roy became far different as a Junior than he was
as a Freshman, and devoted his entire time to educational pursuits. In the class room, especially,
has 'he shown his lucid qualities and is a wonder in Omwake's classes, using as his motto, "In hoc
signo vinces." .
Upon entering Ursinu-s, the original of this picture immediately affiliated himself with Crow's
"Carving Corps" in the Chemical-Biological Group, of which he is still a faithful member. In the
meantime he has absorbed much of :the "benign influence" of the institution, and hence we find
him a very active member of the Y. M. C. A. and I-lirsch's Sunday School class, Secretary of
the Athletic Association and an able instructor in the dancing department, lately instituted
In literarv work he too is prominent and Zwinglian Literary Society is glad to claim him as her
own. He has also ably filled the role of bass in the Glee Club for the past two years.
As a member of the Weekly Staff and as Editor of the l9l 6 Ruby, ,"l..earned" has. well
merited the sobriquet given him by his friends. In his profession as a chemist, we entertain for
him b-right prospects for a successful and prosperous future.
william Sorber iemer
"I have a passion for the name of Homer." -
UST as the sun was rising over the town. of Spring. City on the twenty-ninth day .of April: there came intolife a son, who, shortly
afterward, was named William Sorber Dlemer. ,William had the distinction of being the loudest howler in the square, and if he
1 had been placed on the fence he would not have known whether to start a shoe or a clock store.
1 Shortly after this he, wit'h his father and mother, removed to Pottstown, where he was destined :to annoy the natives by being a
V pest. Immediately he began to get hard by carrying matches, drinking milk and spitting dimes. In due course of time he entered
the Pottstown High School, where he became a renowned Latin student. Here, also, he be-
came a famous athlete, playing on the high school baseball and basket ball teams. He was
graduated from this institution in 1912, and the teachers heaved a deep sigh of relief when he
finally received his "sheep-skin," and sauntered toward the green-swarded campus at Collegeville.
In the F all of 1912, under the guidance of "Dicky" Arms, he came to Ursinus and became
a staunch member of our class. "Dicky" would not permit William to enster the class scrap,
maintaining that he was so small that he might get lost in the crowd. However, what he lacked
in his physical make-up has been amply counter-balanced by his work in the class room, and
if his guardian had given him free sway, he would have undoubtedly stood at the head of his
class The only other obstacle to his success is English Bible, for, as yet, he cannot appre-
ciate the value of such a course, and often mutters: "You might think we were going to
church." ' I o
William as a social star does not shine ,very resplendently about the college, but he is
frequently heard to make reference to the Pottstown, Reading and Ringing Rocks girls. Al-
though not very musical, he 'has been heard to sing in sweet ,straints "Ther-e's No Place Like

His aim, after graduation from Ursinus, is' to teach, and ultimately to gain a name for D
himself as a professional b-all-tosser. Whatever may be 'his undertaking, we wish him unbounded
success and feel certain that victory will 'crown his efforts. '

"Determination and pluck are the synonyms of his name." ,
-:r. 'N June 25, lt59l, up in the regio-n of the Pennsylvania Dutch, where beer flows freely and pretzels are plentiful, little Herman first
A 2. grabbed.a milk bottle. At the age of six, Herman dragged off to school to learn the A, B, C's, which he has now almost mastered.
He received. all of 'his elementary education in the Lebanon schools, the culmination of which came with his graduation from
Lebanon High in l9l l. Feeling the necessity of a higher education, Herman entered Ursinus with the class of l9l6. "Citing,"
tg' ka as we have "dubbed" him, is a good all-around scout. He is the tallest of all the Cedars of Lebanon which adorn our campus,
and m fact there is no one who stands higher in all phases of college life. His intellectual
prowess is vouched for by all the professors. His ability as an athlete has been demonstrated upon
the athletic held. In football "Qing" ,has shown himself to be one of the best tackles Ursinus
has ever had. In basket ball he distinguished himself as a center on his class teamg but in base-
ball, his career was stunted by an accident to his arm in his Freshman year. He is also the
Ursinus Dorizas, having acquired this reputation by putting his fist through door panels during
his first year here, while a member of "Jack Shepard's Friday Night Club." L
No-t only in these activities has "Ging" shown forth, but as a social lion as well, he has
demonstrated remarkable versatility. He was once one of Miss Faulkner's proteges, but when the
news leaked out in Lebanon, "fling" received a calling down, and has since then limited his social
intercourse, with the fair ones, to letters.
Besides these things, Gingrich is a hustling member of Schaff Literary Society, is a good
debater, a silver-tongued orator, and shines conspicuously during the social hour. He is an
ardent supporter of the Y. M. C. A. and attends all meetings faithfully. He has played three
jears on the 'Varsity football team, was a member of the class basket ball and baseball teams,
and has starred in all branches of athletics. He also belongs to Mrs. Webb's "pot-wrestling"
crew, is a member of the Historical-Political Group, rooms in Freeland Hall and is on the House
"Ging" expects to be a lawyer some day. Fromipresent indications we predict a great
career for Herman. Here's to "Qing" with wishes from the entire class that he may meet with
unlimited success. ,

"For truth hath better deeds than words to grace it."
LTI-IOUGH there have been many events during the last twenty years which have attracted our attention, beyond doubt the greatest hap-
pening occurred July 7, IS95, when lo and behold a new-born son was discovered in this, our great Western Hemisphere. After much
9 , wailing and gnashing of teeth, 'the name Allan was finally decided upon as suitable for one who was to startle the entire world, in-
i t cluding Collegeville, by his wonderful discoveries. At the age of six, he entered the Lower Providence public schools and soon set a
new record by saying his X, Y, Z's backward. Being naturally a bright child, he advanced rapidly and in due time was graduated
from the grade school and entered upon a four-year course at Collegeville High School. While
here, he made a brilliant record, and in l9l2, was graduated at the head of his class. -
ln the Fall of l9l2, together with Gottshalk, Keyser and l-lunsicker, Allan entered Ursinus
College as a full-fledged Freshman. Being a lover of unknown quantities, he joined the Mathe-
matical-Physical Group. Since 'then he has become such an adept in the art of differentiation and
integration that there is no doubt in our mind but that at some future date we shall see his name
published far and wide as the promulgator of some new idea in mathematics or as the discoverer
of a new theory in the physical world.
Allan 'has always been immune from that disease, fatal to so many college men, love. The
most probable explanation of 'this is that, in pursuing his studies, he does not have time to bother
himselfwith the fair sex. While in High School, Crater was a star performer on the baseball
team. It has since been whispered around that there were only nine fellows in the school. Since
entering college he has dropped athletics, although he is always one of the most loyal supporters of
Ursinus' teams. r
The Junior year finds Allan working harder than ever. Bible is his favorite subject and he
knows the life of Paul from A to Z. Grater is a member of Zwinglian Literary Society and has
proved his ability as a debater to the satisfaction of every one.
Upon leaving college Allan expects to join the ranks of men and women who are devoting their
efforts toward helping others in the paths of knowledge. As a teacher, we predict for him a
glorious future, and we shall always be proud to remember him as one of us.
Herbert Z. Ecover
"This which nolv seems frivolous sand slight will prove of serious consequence."
9 T wal? one of those beautiful, balmy days in June, l895, when the subject of this epistle was ushered into the Dutch town of Glen
I Roc i,-located ln the wllds of York County, Pa. After attending the public schools of his native village for several. years, this
promising youth entered the York County Academy. Here he applied himself very diligently for two years and was graduated
in the Spring of 1912. Upon entering UYSIHUQ the following F all, it was his firm intention'-to specialize in Latin, and he therefore
f entered the l..at1n-Nlathematlcal Group. But this aspiration was short-lived, for, after becoming acquainted with a few of the ac-
herents of -the Group, he at once changed his course. '
It soon became evident to the students that this young man was possessed of many accom-
plishments. It was during his first few days at college that "Herb" disclosed his wonderful
vocal qualities by singing little ditties to the moon. Although somewhat involuntary, these ex-
hibitions paved the way for his position as ,uwhiskeyn tenor on the Glee Club. He was also
the proud possessor of considerable ability as a cornetist and he frequently disturbed -the occu-
pants of East Wing with his nocturnal raids. . '
However, it was not until his Sophomore year that "Herbie" came to' the front. sDuring
this time he displayed great ability in the Hsiackingn of Freshmen's rooms, and also proved him- -
self to be an actor of some note by successfully taking part' in several plays and sketches.
As a social star he has always been a shining light. He is quite ta favorite among the
fair sex and can often be found in the library holding a little tete-a-tete, while all parties to Val-
ley Forge and Sanatoga Park number him among their members. The prominence of this "col-
lege cutie,', as he is often called, is just as great at home as it is at Ursinus, and it is nothing
unusual for him to receive three or four neatly addressed letters a day.,
Beside all these side issues, "Herb" has always been known to be a good student and takes
great interest in his Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry. He is a staunch Schaffite and a faith-
ful member of the Y. M. C. A. He is also a member of the Ctlee Club and the Student ,
Senate, and is Assistant Manager of baseball. His chosen profession for future life is teach-
ing, and that success may be with him in his undertaking is our sincere wish. -

ing, sometimes "Singley," but never alone. Although she has recently moved to Collegeville, she
still enjoys her Sunday afternoon walks to Irohbridge. While in high school, Sadie often visited
literary society and, on one o-ccasion, came to a baccalaureate sermon-but alas! a sudden shower
ruined her pristine splendor. However, in spite of this "damper," the next Fall, with the rest
of our glorious class, she entered Ursinus. l
At first Sadie seemed a rather quiet girl but it took only a few days to learn -to know her,
and the specially reserved seats which she and Grace occupied on the back row with "Jake" be-
came the most popular corner of the Dean's Latin class.
She also did something for hercountry in her Freshman year by helping Mabel get to the
banquet, thereby discomliting the Sophomore forces of Shreiner. In her Sophomore year she was
brave enough to take Math II and became so fond of it that she often hunts for asymptotes in
her dreams. She visited both societies and, although there seemed a "Crater" attraction at
Zwing, she joined Schaff, and her musical ability has made her a very valuable member. She
is also a member of Y. W. C. A. and was recently appointed a delegate to the convention at

there is a special place reserved for the lad from York who visits her house both Hliarlfyf'

probable, we wish her unbounded succ-ess.

V' energy he began to throw eggs against the Darn door. Noticing that the hens resented the treatment to which their fruit was sub-

art of wielding a pitchfork. Suffice it to say he soon became very proficient in this, and has l

The individual of whom we are speaking is none other than Russell Conwell Johnson, better
known as H-ling, the spit-ball artist." Surrounded, as he was, by such an influential environ-
ment, "Jing" soon lent his untiring efforts toward higher attainments, and consequently at an early
age he entered Spring City I-Iigh School, from which institution he was graduated in l9l2. It
was while attending this institution that he was first introduced into the society of the fair sex,
which at first had a decided effect upon his nerves. Time wrought great changes, however, and
this bashful country youth, having totally overcome this physical debility, was shipped, via the
Perkiomen, toward Collegeville.
That Fall, he entered Ursinus in a diligent search for knowledge. In his first year he dis-
tinguished himself as a star on the mound, and his services in this capacity have proved a valuable
asset to the success of the baseball team during the past three years. Within a few years we shall
not be surprised to see his name on the payroll of the "Athletics"
However, he does not let athletics interfere with his studies. Especially is he proficient in '
Chemistry and we predict for him a professorshlpi in Chemistry in some large university. We are

of five, the parents moved all their belongings and, incidentally, those of the rest of the family, to
the "City of Brotherly Lovef' In l907, James entered Northeast Manual Training High School.
For two seasons, "Mike" was quarterback on Northeast's greatest football teams, was elected
"pipe-man" in his Senior year, and served a term as Treasurer of The, Alumni Athletic Associa-
tion. For eighteen months, "Senator Mike," in the capacity of watchman, assisted President
McCrea in the management of the Pennsylvania Railway System.
Finally, in the Fall of l9l2, he arrived at Collegeville on the Perkiomen express and in-
quired of the statio-n agent where he might find Ursinus University. That very day "Jimmy" be-
came a member of Pri'ce's football camp and since then has become one of the most brilliant lumi-
naries -in the prominent constellation of Ursinus' stars. Such incidents as eighty-three yard runs
for the only touchdown Ursinus has ever scored against Lafayette are mere trifles in "Mikes,
eventful life. He has been fittingly honored with the captaincy of next year's team. But "Jimmy"
has won more fame for himself upon the diamond than upon the gridiron, if that be possible. He
has the unusual honor of being Captain of the 'Varsity in his .lunior year and possesses a large
loving-cup, as well as a beautiful gold watch, as booty from his summer raids in the realm of base-
ball. ' i -
In academic, musical and social pursuits, "Mike" is very prominent. He is a Hcrammeru
of the highest order and utilizes his Friday evenings to cultivate his voice. "Jimmy" says he in-
tends to preach after graduation, but he will really make a better lawyer than a preacher. How--
ever, it is safe to predict that, if popularity breeds riches, James Buyers will be a multi-millionaire.

honors when she was graduated from high school also proved that she was an unusual student.
The following Autumn she entered Keystone State Normal School and hnished the course
in one year, another evidence of her precocity. At Normal her heart was slightly touched but,
due to her training as a doctor's daughter, she was "Frank" with herself and threw off the spell
without it leaving any bad effects.
Then Marion followed in the footsteps of her father and entered old U, being numbered
among the illustrious l9l 6 class. She distinguished herself during her verdant days by her plucky
fight in getting to the class banquet. During her second year Marion was under the chaperonage
of three Seniors, from whom she learned the art of making puns. Her present "roomies" are
endeavoring to break her of this habit since "Doc" Tower's recent lecture on insanity. As to
her numerous cavaliersg for the first two years she had,a new one at every shine.
Having spent last Summer tending her Dad's office and attending dances with "the bunch"
fwhich' one of the bunch we couldn't sayl, Marion returned to join the "O-hi-o" suite and has
become leading lady in the caste. She loves to play all kinds of tricks but especially to be a
participant in the "Romantic" ones Cask Mildred about thisl.
Marion is a staunch Zwinglian, Vice President of Y. W. C. A., and has held many class
offices. She has not decided whether she will teach or stay at homeg but as to earning her own
way, we think she will "Let George do it." Nevertheless, her classmates wish her the long and '
happy life which her true and friendly spirit deserves.

G 0-E511 Cthniel Kerr, otherwise known as "Doc," or "Polar Bearf, which latter name hehas acquired from the use of his favorite brand.
g Xie! After graduating from the Shippingport Public Schools, he entered Slippery Rock State Normal School, where he learned the
first rudiments of football and baseball, and devoted his spare moments to his books. Wfhile at Slippery Ro-ck, Othniel played on
the 'Varsity team in foo-tball and the Reserve team in baseball. When he had gained all the l
knowledge this institution could offer him we find him among the graduates of the class of l9l3.
ln the Fall of that year, Kerr entered Ursinus and became the mainstay of the football team at
center. He has played that position for two years with considerable success.
Though the "Doctor" is a good student and also spends a great deal of his time on the
athletic field, he finds time to ramble over to Francefsl several times a week. Kerr has also
shown his athletic ability in the basket ball cage and on the tennis court. In the latter sport it
is often possible to see large numbers of students gather about him to admire his stately pose, as
he serves the tennis balls with accurate eye and telling effect. s '
At this institution Kerr has been a success as a student, doing his work thoroughly and evinc-
ing deep interest. I-le has made many friends, and has been a staunch supporter of the Red, Old
Gold and Black. When on the gridiron he is a man of few words, but an accurate machine in
action and filled with determination. He also covers first sack' on the Reserve baseball team and
has demonstrated his worth in that capacity.
Because of his ambition, he spends his summers at Ursinus 'taking special Work. He car- r
ries a heavy course at present, and is thus enabled to finish his college career in three years. Upon
graduating from Ursinus, it is his purpose to become a member of the bar. Knowing the perse-
verance and untiring efforts which characterize all of "Doc's" undertakings, we 'feel assured that
he will succeed, and look for him to make quite a name for himself in the forensic arena. i

Having duQy entered Mahanoy City High School, Harold decided to take part in all the
activities, literary and athletic, as well as social. He formed many friendships there, one of which,
in particular, will doubtless prove lasting. His work during the course was carried on in a very
persistentmanner and, in l9l2, he was graduated from the high school with high honors.
When it was decided that UKersch," because of his fondness for books, should continue his
educational pursuits, the was sent to Ursinus, where he entered, in the Fall of 1912, as a Fresh-
man. Under the tutelage of "Fats," Dave, and "Chrissy," the experienced trainers for all
"rough-neckn tricks and stunts, there was no chance for reformation, but merely an added im-

A molasses shower failed in its purpose, and he continued to spend his unoccupied moments in

During his Sophomore year, Derr, 'Harold's roommate, brought some restraint into play,

has substituted hard work and other college duties. He is an active member of the Y. M. C.

of the Cxlee Club, Weekly Staff and other lesser organizations, in all of which he shows great

Ronald Zbester liicbline
"I am the god of foolish things."
ONALD CHESTER KICHLINE, leader of the "Doghouse Gang," and sturdy representative of that race of which we are so
justly proud, the Pennsylvania Dutch, was born in a secluded valley among the foothills of Eastern Pennsylvania Bangor a
H claiming the honor of his birth in the early days of l894. Although Ronald, better known as Klch or Nungus first saw
the light of day on a cold anuary morn, he has, nevertheless, always had a sunny disposition His early days are unimportant
S' but when he reached high school and became associated with Pritchard, a marked change was noted in young Kichline for from
E , f .., J '
that day forth he became the village "cut up."
Upon graduation from Bangor High in 1911, "Nungus" had become such an ardent ad-
mirer of the beautiful that he decided to return the following year and take a post-graduate course.
The next year, following in the footsteps of his two older brothers, he came to Ursinus, and we
could almost see the stones of Bombergerlight up when he first set his foot upon the college cam-
pus. He was enrolled as a member of the class of I9I6, and during his Freshman year was
a model student. But since that time, "Kich,,' under the able tutelage of Prof. Vogl, has
become one of the leading exponents of German culture, and everywhere he goes he is hailed as
a' "jolly good fellow."
On the football field Kichline has shown himself to be an athlete of no mean ability, for it
takes a strong opponent, indeed, to prevent him from piercing their line for substantial gains. He
also holds down the "heavy" part in the Glee Club, and is a member of Schaff Society. As a
reward for his loyalty, the class of l9I6 has this year honored him with its presidency. The
Freshman class is well taken care of, inasmuch as he is setting them a noble exampleg and no more
"week in week out from morn till night do you hear his 'bellows blow." "Kich" is upholding the
dignity of his office by being a student in the true sense of the word.
Another year under the "benign influence" should fully prepare "Nungus" to enter l?enn.Dena
tal School, where, if he performs his duties as capably as he has done here and applies himself
in a like manner, we can only prophesy that he will have the greatest success.
Elizabeth mae Kohler y
"She talks and talks, but that is human,
She likes the men, but she's a woman."
EHOLD! we come now to this fair Shreiner element of the class of l9l6 Elizabeth Mae Kohler nolsed about for the first time
' QW in l894 in that wonderful little village known as Eureka This little place IS the commercial center of Bucks County as all the
G7 roads leading from lt go to the lmportant cities of the world Upon the arrival of this promising cherub the village echoed with

the words, "I have found lt." . I V
Soon we find this fair damsel starting her career at the little fred school house of Eureka Here she and Merrill became staunch
friends. M-ae 'soon began to teach the teacher, so in i908 she entered Doylestown High School
and, in l9l2, as a result of her brilliancy, wandered to Ursinus with scholarship in hand. Thus
in 1912 we come upon Mae wandering about like a lost sheep, seeking 'a roommate. During her
Freshman year we found her quite an unassuming specimen, residing on -the second floor of
Shreiner. But, in her Sophomore year, Mae began to assert herself 5 she moved to the third floor
and became one of the "Third Floor Big League." She now became active in social affairs, very
popular among the boys, and quite an efficient uslammerf' S
Now she has ascended to the Junior class and we are very sorry to say it is her last year
among us as a student, she having taken advanced work at summer school which will enable her
to become a teacher a year earlier. However, we are glad to say that she is a loyal member of
the l9l6 class and will graduate with us after a year of teaching. At summer school she was
a wonder, rushing her lessons as well as numerous admirers. She has, however, confided to the
girls that she does not care a rap for any of the boys around here, yet she has always expressed a
desire for an "Earl," Mae has always been popular among the girls because of her good nature
and her happy-go-lucky spirit, It is on account of her pleasant ways and kindly nature that we
can predict for her nothing but a very successful future as a Hschoolmarmn in her own home town.
It is well understood that Mae would prefer to locate near the place which attracts her home every
week-end, rain or shine, for she is a farmer's daughter and delights to "Harrow" around.
Bruce 'flovd Eamon!
"The brenzeris big black hosses can't run over mc."
N the morning of the twenty-eigh-th of May, Bruce Floyd Lamont, better known as "King or Thorough first saw the light of
A j day when the sun beamed down on the small village of Hazleton, Pa. His youthful intellect early showed signs of learning and
:--- after graduating from the grammar school, he entered the Hazleton Township High School Up to the time of his raduation from
high school he was mamma's boy, but time and circumstance have wrought a great change in this young man
L' 59 'L As there was a scarcity of Hlarninn in Hazleton, he packed his grip and in the Fall of l9lZ wandered to State College where
he was first initiated into the mysteries of college life. As Bruce had always expressed a desire
of attending a co-educational school, he decided to leave this college at Christmas time and finish
his year's work at a college of the above named type. So we next see him in Room 208, Free-
land Hall, where he has established the most beautiful art gallery ever seen at Ursinus College,
and in which he spends ALL of his time except when making a few occasional visits to the class
room. . -
Bruce had taken very little part either in college activities or in his studies until the opening
of our present college year. Since that time we find him, day and night, in his room turning the
grindstone and driving the wagon. ln fact, he has succeeded so well that 'he is fast winning a
place in the estimation of those who exalt "the grindf' Of course we must not forget to mention
that he is a loyal Zwinglian, and one of the most valued workers of the Y. M. C. A.
Besides, he has given much study to the science known as hypnotismg in fact, he has won
the title of Robert Bruce Floyd Harvey Lamont, the world's greatest hypnotist and magician. If
any one doubts this statement consult "DL" Wood, who is absolutely under the power of Mr.
Lamont has a large and extensive correspondence throughout many of the Eastern States, and
for this reason none of the fair co-eds have as yet won his favor. He has formed many lasting
friendships both within and without the college, and whatever he may choose as his future profes-
sion, even though it be that of the medical missionary, the best wishes of his classmates go with

"I am a philosopher-confound them all!"
tif E are told, as the roses- were blooming in that quiet little city of Lebanon and the suburbs thereof, during the year IS94, that a new
'51 Light appeared among the sons of men--a peculiar phenomenon, in that it was seen to be of material existence. As the Light
, Q grew stronger and brighter it was thought that a name should be affixed to it, whereby it might be properly distinguished and
recognized in this mundane sphere, therefore, he was called Daniel Sterling Light. .
" abtb After acquiring and assimilating the fundamental requisites which the public schools of his native town had to offer, Sterling entered
the high school, from which institution he was 'creditably graduated. Realizing that higher edu- '
cation is the keynote to success, he decided to enter college, and in the Fall o-f l9l2 we found
him among the members of the illustrious 'I6 class. s
He is a member of the Historical-Political Group, and with collateral readings in one hand
and note-book in the other, one can almost daily see him amble toward Bomberger, bound for l
the l-listory Room, where he listens attentively to that spectacled sage of History, Dr. Hirsch. i
We also find the subject of this sketch deeply interested in the standard Comedies and Tragedies--
also Romances. I-le proved to be an actor of no small ability when he took the part of Richard
III at Schaff Anniversary. He is one of Schaff's ablest debaters, having taken second prize in i
the Schaff Prize Debate. As Assistant Business Manager of the "Weekly," we find him dis-
charging his duties in an able manner.
In the realm of athletics we find "Sterl', at home. I-le excels particularly in basket ball,
and is the most consistent scorer in that sport. His teammates have recognized his ability by elect-
ing him Captain of the 'Varsity, for which position he is well fitted. He is also a member of the
'Varsity football team and showed ability and good judgment in running off plays at the position '
of quarterback. We find him taking an active part in baseball, for during the past season he
played short-stop for the Reserves. t
Thus we have seen that "Sterl" is a man of many parts.- Upon the completion of his col-
legiate course he expects to study law, and, judging from his intellectual and oratorical abilities,
we can predict for him nothing but success. g A l

Olevian. Here she is also famous as the leader of the orchestra, in which she plays first comb
very effectively. ' '
Whein Mildred was graduated from high school, Paulsboro was so proud of her that it gave
her a commencement all to herself, and, next morning, a picture of the "class" of l9l2 found
its way into the "Press" which sold remarkably well that day.
The following September, 'Mildred, equipped with a recipe for fudge and a pack of cards,
journeyed to Collegeville to join the 'class of l9l6. Soon after her arrival it was noted that a
certain Senior became very much interested in the life of Paul. He finally persuaded her that she
ought to COttol .join the regulars. Since these Freshman days Mildred has somehow been in-
terested in the West. Indeed her knowledge of Minnesota is positively startling.
I This F all she turned her steps to Smith College but, later on, came back to us and joined
the firm of O-hi-o and Co. This event was celebrated by "eating bats" fan importation from
New Englandlb at Olevian and by prolonged rejoicings in Dog House. Indeed "Rut" has been
smiling ever since. These days Mildred is a very industrious Junior, her time being consumed in
preparation for teaching. But we do not believe that she will ever be eligible for the New Jersey
pension. She allows herself to be diverted at times to talk about life at Smith when she agrees
with Prof. Wailes and says homesickness is a feeling that cannot be described. Sometimes, also,
you may find her in the library scanning the Bucknell Weekly.
Mildred is a loyal member of Schaff Society. Her faithfulness is not surprising considering
her interest in all societies, especially lodges fspelled with a capitalj.

Although long instature, "Pritch" is a jockey by trade, and has never yet succeeded in t

in his second year at college. He is also fond of tennis, and is a lover of the game where both
arms are permitted. Since entering college, "Pritch" has taken a firm stand for co-education,
and at all social gatherings he may be seen stalking -through the crowd, followed by the tender
glances of all the lovely maidens. He is not only admired by -the weaker sex, but is also popular

tet, and in the Glee Club concerts always charms his hearers by his excellent singing. He is a
rare specimen in that he possesses a voice which reaches to high C. -

A she proved to be a very precocious child, and her teacher soon noticed a very perceptible bump of intelligence developing In Feb
ruary of the year l909, fair Gladys entered the Norristown High School. Each morning, with
her father, perched high upon a huge farm wagon, she drove. to school. By giving close attention
to her studies she was enabled to complete the four years course in three years, graduating with
high honors: y
Her eagerness for knowledge was so great that she matriculated at Ursinus in l9l2 and,
by so doing, became a member of the famous 'l 6 class. Her Freshman year may be characterized
as a period of transition, for this was the year when Gladys blossomed forth in all her glory and
won the heart of the then Connecticut, but now Tennessee, man. To her already heavy schedule
was added a course in radiator culture, but, despite this fact, her regular class room work was
by no means neglected.
Gladys continued to carry an extra course throughout her Sophomore year and, although a
day student, she' remained within the precincts of Bomberger almost daily until the hour of six
pealed forth. This was the year that Gladys joined the Zwinglian Literary Society. She en-
tered upon this new work with the greatest amount of zealg in fact, so fond did she become of
the society that she was once discovered calmly sitting on the steps leading to the society hall-not
alone, however. I-ler interest was not entirely centered in Ursinus, for, quite by chance, we
learned that weekly epistles passed between Williamson and Jeffersonville.
It is Gladys' ambition to train America's young hopefuls to better citizenship. Whether she
will follow this profession is a matter of conjecture, but, judging from hergefliciency in the past,
we feel sure that she will be successful in anything she attempts.

be liberally educated under the benign influence of Christianity." He at once decided to make
Ursinus his Alma Mater and entered as a Freshman with the other members of the 1916 class.
He spent his first year conten-tedly with his roommate, Yeatts, in East Wing, trying to escape
the watchful eyes of Yingst and "Fats" Bear, and helping to stack rooms whenever the opportu-
nity presented itself. He also enlisted as a "regular" during this period. He began his Sopho-
more year aright by helping to introduce the "Freshies" into the mysteries of college life. Think- '
ing himself too good a chap for East Wing, he moved into the Canine Apartments, where he
This year most of l..eslie's time is being occupied with his studies. He is, at present, work-
ing very industriously on a thesis on "The Life of Paul," and there is no doubt in our minds but
that he will be able to pullat least an A for his effort. He is also exposed to Psychology,
which is very burdensome to him, and which often forces him to lose his Christianity.
"Rut," as 'he is called by most of the fellows, takes an active part in many of the activities
of the college. He has played on the Scrub Baseball team for the past three seasons, and has
recently been elected Track Manager. He has identified himself with the Mathematical-Physical
Group and is a "shark" in Mathematics and Chemistry. il-le is also an active member of the Y. s

will secure a position as a Chemist. We wish him the best of success in his undertakings. V

Q' OLLEGEVILLE PA ,was aroused from its lethargy, one warm day' in the Summer of 1895 by the announcement that a new

his many friends know him.
As soon as 'Soni' had attained the proper age and was able to sit in one position for a
reasonable length of time he was sent to school. Wliile in school, "Son" was the recipient of
many favors' from his teachers, especially in the matter of extra work during the noon and recrea-
tion periods. During the last year of his high school course, he was led to see the advantages
of a higher education, and decided to. go to college after his graduation. He was graduated with
the class of l9l2.
In the F all of that year "Son" was able to enter an institution of higher learning, as was
his desire, and, under the guidance of a more experienced member of the family, was piloted
through the mysteries' of registration, and entered Ursinus as a member of the class of l9l6.
Since entering college "Son" has applied himself to the task of taking History notes, and per-
forming in the Chemistry laboratory the customary tasks of the student. Chemistry was chosen
by him as a diversion from the monotony of note-taking, but this has recently been abandoned.
"Son" has alsobeen a member of the Hebrew Culture Group, and the degree of popularity that
he has attained among the students of this group is attested to by the fact that he at one time
was considered for the position of Group Adviser. During the early part of his Junior year,
however, "Son" withdrew from the active membership of the group to devote his entire time to
the taking of notes. He has also been a loyal supporter of his class and has represented it on
the gridiron in a whole-hearted manner.
Clarence, himself, is somewhat uncertain as to what field he'shall enter after graduation,
but, whether he continues to hand out salve and toilet water down at the barber shop or whether
he enters the teaching profession, we wish him nothing but unlimited success.

"A sweet attractive kind of grace."
,f l N a sunny day in May, this bright lassie first opened her eyes in the little village of Mont Clare She was such a wee child that
Q her parents feared for her size. Thereupon it was decided that she should be given yeast that she might grow into a tall sta e
,gf young lady. As soon as she became old enough, Mary was sent to Phoenixville High School ln order to increase the convolutlons
of her brain as well as her height. During her first years here, she became very "Gay and it soon became a question whether she
lgi ki should give up her gayety or her education. But Mary liked school too well to give it up so she settled down to work again
l-ler thoughts now turned to poetry and she became quite a distinguished rhymer fReimerJ.
Even to this day some of that poetical ability is retained. She was graduated in l9ll with
highest honors and, the same year, she broke away from her home ties and entered Wyoming
Seminary, only to return to Mont Clare after a few weeks' stay. '
In the Fall of l9l2, Mary joined the ranks of the famous class of 'I6 at Ursinus. In her
Freshman days she shone forth as a brilliant member of the class, especially at the Freshman ban-
quet, where she caused no end of jealousy. Her class spirit also showed itself after the Fresh-Soph
football game when she came into the dining-room that evening with an Orange and Black crepe-
paper hair ribbon, only slightly smaller than herself. .
During the early part of her Sophomo-re year she seemed to be immune from -the attacks of
Cupid's arrows but, later in the year, she suddenly "Terry"-fied the entire student body by falling

"Here is a sigh to those who love me."
,fi ,QHE third day of the past February marked the twenty-first anniversary of the birthday of a sturdy son of the sod, who is the subject
of th.is biography, and who has become known as Calvin Preston Sellers. He was born in the wilds of Franklin County, Pa., near
.qt X the town 'of Greencastle. Little is known of his early life, except that he drove the ducks to water, shooed the chickens out of the
garden, picked stones on his father's farm, and attended the public schools.
At the age of fourteen, he entered the Greencastle High School, and, after having absorbed all the knowledge possible at that
institutio-n, was given a diploma. "Ben,,' as he is called, then conceived the idea that the knowl- A
edge gained at high school was too limited and that he should go -to some higher institution of
learning. Dr. Qmwake then exerted his influence upon this young man, and, after much per- s
suasion, HBen" decided to cast his .lot with the l9l6 class at Ursinus. s
"Benn was a member of the Reserve football team during his Freshman and Sophomore
years. Being an Assistant Business Manager of the Ruby he could find no -time for at'hletics
during his Junior year inasmuch as he was kept busy bagging and selling "Baldy,' l7enton's pea-
nuts at the 'Varsity football games. In this capacity he served very well. During his Sopho-
more and Junior years he also served as chief "hash-slingeru for the Dean and hence his good s s s
marks in Latin. 'FBen" is prominent in social activities and is a friend of every one around college,
especially- the fairer sex. He has not shown any special favors to any particular one for, fear
the others would become offended. '
Preston is quite .proficient in the art of running the grindstone and sparks may be seen fly-
ing from his room from early in the morning until late at night. He is an active member of the
college Y. M. C. A., and takes a great interest in all religious activities. He is a member of
the Latin-Mathematical Group, and the Derr Hall uhaas-en-pfeffern league. He is a staunch
Zwinglian and also "Goldie's" guardian. '
When Preston gets through drawing geometrical figures and riding over the Roman Empire
on Cicero's ponies, at Ursinus, he expects to make teaching his chosen profession. Our best wishes
are with him, whatever his profession, and we can only prophesy the best of success for him.
Rachel Faust Sbaner
"And still we gazed and still the wonder grew,
q That one small head could carry all she knewf,
4 i HE sun must have shone very brightly indeed when Rachel Faust Shaner was born, for even nature must have recognized this event
W as noteworthy ln -the history of Pottstown. .Rachel early ful-filled this prophecy, fo-r her cleverness showed itself in the way she
lorded it over her brothers when a mere child, and she literally Hruled the roost."
After a preliminary education she entered the Pottstown High School, from which institution she was graduated in l9l3. She
X entered Ursinus in the Fall of that year and here soon proved to be one of Potts'town's most brilliant lights. She excelled in her
work in every class room but, especially, in Dr. Vogl's French III, where she was often per-
mitted to do all the reading. Conservative is the word that describes Rachel in the beginning of
her Freshman year but, by the time of the Freshman banquet, she decided that the boys were not
so awful after all. At the banquet she had a "Lightkep" and has more or less kept Light ever
since, even to a Leighton. Rachel won the admiration of the sterner sex by her prowess on the
ice. That white sweater fairly flew and glided past all masculines wi-thout a glance in their
Time indeed works changes and this staunch young lady, with her independent ways, went
so far as to come home from society by the long way and linger "under the spreading chestnut
tree where the college Smithy stood." She also answered the "close to nature" call, and even -
suggested maneuvers of a "Light" nature.
Because of her aptness, she decided to cut off one year at Ursinus and hence attended the
last Summer Session of the college. Here we see a new Rachel, a startling individual, who in-
dulged in summer romancing, hammock leagues, moonlight strolls, and frequently cut classes. In
spite of all these distracting elements, she came out conqueror at the end.
This Fall, Rachel did the most noteworthy thing in her life. She joined the 'l6 class of
which she is an illustrious member. She is an earnest worker of Schaff Society, being also a mem-
ber fof the orchestra. Rachel expects to take graduate work at Bryn Mawr, and, if her present
is any indication of her future, we are sure that success alone awaits her in herchosen profession,
that of teaching. c

I "In sooth I If-now not why I am so sad."
K I EAR the close of .the nineteenth century, on a balmy day in August, the.little town of Spring City was thrown into confusion, the
6 D X19 cause was the arrival of another Smith, .Leighton by name, who was destined to make that name famous.
l-le attended the public schools of Spring City and graduatedfrom the .same high school in the Spring of l9l2. He decided
to take up law as his profession and journeyed westward to Dickinson, to pursue studies along that line, but he soon found that
A A he was out .of place. So he came to Ursinus, and, after taking Prof. Hirsch's advice, he enrolled in the Historical-Political Group.
l-lis first year was rather uneventful except for the regular letters he used to receive from a
certain girl, and also for his proficiency in ejecting disturbers and loafers from his room. At
th.e time of the Freshman banquet he acted as a bodyguard to our president and led him safely
away from the wily Sophs. Ar the beginning of his second year, he led the Sophs on their hazing
tours and helped to remove the Freshman president, one night, from his bed, and hide him in a
"bungalow" along the Perkiomen. During this year he increased his ability as a preserver of peace
in his room and not only removed the disturber, bodily, from the room, but led him up and down
the hall until subjection was complete. In his Junior year, HSmitty" changed to the Chemical-
Biological Group and is now taking up his favorite study, namely, Chemistry. At present he is
engaged in that efficient and highly regarded department directed by Mrs. Webb, as a "hash-
But we must not fail to note that "Smitty" has not altogether neglected the fair co-eds of
Ursinus. However, upon questioning the gentleman on the subject, heydeclares with much em-
phasis, Hlt must stop! it must- stop!" and, of course, he is believed ff-U.
Hsmittyn is a loyal member of Schaff Literary Society and has distinguished himself both
as a debater and as a musician. He is a member of the Y. M. C. A., and is one of the Busi-
ness Managers of the Ruby. In the profession which he has chosen, namely, teaching, it is hardly
necessary to say that his future is bright and our best wishes for his success go with him after '

he became an adept in long runs and forward-pass receiving. In the Spring he again played
good baseball, and was chosen, for the All-Scholastic team of Western Pennsylvania, along with
"Lil" Arthur Adams. As a social lion .Ralph also excels, and succeeded in capturing the heart
of a fair maiden, who has often sent him letters since he has been at Ursinus.
"Paddles" Douthett, hearing of this wonder, made a journey to Slippery Rock, and induced
Ralph to cast his lot with Ursinus. Hence, in the Fall of l9l2 the Ursinus campus was beauti-
fied by the appearance of "Raphy," who soon exhibited his tendencies toward Biological proclivi-
In athletics he has won a seat in the hall of fame. He is one of the best catchers that
Ursinus has ever had, and has successfully performed the rare feat of stealing second with the
bases full. Cn one of the trips during his Freshman year, he abhorred the company of his fel-
low players to such an extent that he locked himself in acprivate room and rode all the way from
Sixty-ninth to Norristown by his lonely. '
The charms of the fair co-eds have made but little impression on this young man, although
he but recently took a fine young lady to the concert given by the St. Luke's Cmlee Club. I-le is
a good student, a member of the Chemical-Biological Group, a member of Zwinglian Literary
Society, Manager of the basket ball team, and a member of the 'Varsity baseball team.
I-lis major studies are Chemistry and Biology, and he will take graduate work in these sub-
jects after graduation. After he and his bride- settle down, he will probably take up the teaching
profession, in .which we can foresee nothing but success for him. '
ALPH STUGART, better known as "Raphy," first saw light in Montoursville, Pa., one hot Summer morning in July 1890 At
an early age it was discovered that this sturdy son of the back woods had an inclination to delve into the mysteries of the scientific
world, so in the Fall of l909 he entered Clarion State Normal School, and so distinguished himself in athletics that Em Miller

1,3 QS the one who made his appearance on.Washington's birthday, -1894, in the form of Earl Raymond Yeatts. His parents, seeing
that he was a goodly child, and desiring that some day he might become great, began at once to formulate plans for the future
success of their son, and in the fulfillment of their plans they were not disappointed, because Earl has proved his worth in every

As soon as he was able to talk plainly Earl made his appearance at the York Public Schools. c
He did not like this new event in his life at first, but, after a short time, he overcame this antip-
athy for study, and began to learn so rapidly that in the Fall of 1908 he entered the York High
School and soon gained recognition there. ln the Spring of 1912, he graduated from this insti-
tution, and wishing to secure a better knowledge of things before facing the world and its various
vicissitudes, he began looking around forsome higher institution in which to cast his lot.
After a month of contemplation he decided to try his fortunes at Ursinus, and, accordingly,
in the Fall of that same year he entered the ranks of the 1916 class. I-lis first year of college
life was filled with numerous incidents. 'l-le, with his roommate, Leslie Rutledge, dwelt in the '
room beneath Christman and "Fats,' Bear, and on several occasions when Earl was peacefully
slumbering he was ruthlessly awakened by a well directed water bag from the dexterous hands
During 'his Sophomore year we find Earl rooming with Lee Thomas, and it was during this
year tht any one passing their room could hear them discussing the aptitudes and inaptitudes of
the Socialistic Principles. Fortunately Earl could not see the validity of Lee,s arguments or he
might by this time be an ardent supporter of that party.
Despite all these defects, Earl has shown his ability in many directions. l-le is a loyal mem-
ber of his class, a valued member of Schaff Literary Society, Business Manager of the Ruby, is
connected with all the musical organizations about the school, and takes an active part in all relig- 1
ious work. With such a varied experience we c'n predict for him nothing but success in his chosen A 1
profession, the ministry.
In the vale of the Perkiomen,
In the halls of Ursinus so fair,
Gathered we so eager and loyal
As Freshmen, with never a care.
ln the life of our Alma Mater,
Soon we traveled along the way,
And revealed, to those who'd climbed higher,
A mettle courageous and gay.
Now for three years we've dwelt here together
Amidst joys, and discouragements, too g.
With a vim weive studied and frolicked,
To the Orange and Black have been true
And with face ever turned to the sunlight,
- We're still struggling onward to gain
What is loved by thy children, Ursinus,-- c
A spirit worthy thy name.

Sophomore Class Bistorv
HE thought ofowriting aclass history .seemed at first a difficult and painful task, but, upon due reflection, so many
' pleasant experiences arise that the writer takes great pleasure in compiling the history of the 1917 class. The achieve-
ments of our first year, as every one remembers, are quite praiseworthy, considering the disadvantages under which we
laboredg however, for the benefit of those who do not know us, let us recount those achievements briefly.
ln the Class-Rush we were greatly outnumbered and were finally defeated by a small margin. The banquet
was the next affair, and, to the great surprise of our Sophomore friends, every Freshman was present. The Basket Ball game
proved another surprise, for here again we were victors. The field meet was another affair in which the class of 1917 again
proved its ability by attaining the highest number of points scored among all the classes. The Baseball game was won by the
Sophomores. y g A
This present year, with several additions to the class, we started off with a rush and downed the "Freshies" in the Crass-
Rush with very little difficulty. Shortly after this, the "Freshiesn decided 4191 to wear bright red caps with a green button. The
"Sophs" are compelled to admit that the colors harmonize very beautifully and that it was a great step in advance of other
classes. After much debating, the Freshmen finallv decided that they would take the risk of holding a banouet. Thinking they
would lose-themselves in a large city, they decided to hold it at Hotel Hamilton, Norristown. Could the "Freshies" have fore-
told what their Sophomore friends intended to do, they undoubtedly would have stayed at home or taken different means of
escape. After ,exposing themselves to the blows and flour bags of the "Sophs." they finally gained entrance to the street car,
looking more like millers than banqueters. Several visited a tailor and had their suits cleaned and pressed, and then were al-
lowed to proceed in safety to the banquet hall. Every one claimed they had a pleasant time, despite their unpleasant ex-
The "Freshies" looked upon the Football game with little concern and were at all times confident of an easy victory.
Their fond dreams soon passed away when they saw, before their own eyes, their heavy line pierced and scattered, time and
again, by the "Sophs." Touchdown after touchdown was made until the final score was 26-0 in favor of the "Sophs.,'
The class is gifted in having fine musical talent, good debaters, diligent students and men and women who are prominent
in all the phases of college life. And thus may we go on, doing all in our power. little though it may be, remembering that
"Perseverantia omnia vincit," for the honor of our class and theuglory of dear old Ursmus.

we decided to make a history for that class as we Went through college, that could never be erased from the college

Freshman Glass Poem
September s leaves were falling
Round Olevlan s sheltered nooks
While Freeland s bell was calling
To another year of books
When first was seen Th Class of Elghteen
Not long were they ln maklng
Ursinus all their own.
They followed this by taking
Possession of the town.
Were they green? Not Eighteen.
Four happy years together
Neath the Red Old Gold and Black
Thro all kinds of storm and weather
Loyalty we ll never lack
Best ever seen Class of Eighteen
When our four years course is ended
And we ve sadly gone away,
They will change the motto splendid
And the sun-dial then will say
The best has been, Class of Eighteen.

CAPTAIN KENNEDY EX-CAPTAIN BOYER
Baseball Review of l9l4
S the season of 1914 approached, the prospects of having a winning baseball team were the brightest entertained at
' . , I
Ng ' Ursinus for many years Of the 1913 team all the men returned except P Mathieu, who was d t d W ll
gra ua e , e er, and
ex Captain Gay, who was suddenly taken from our midst. With the return of Mitterling Kennedy Adams Stu art
a 9 9 g n
Capt. Boyer, Johnson, and of Diemer and Butler, who were substitutes the previous year together with Reiff, Bedenk
and Ziegler of the Freshman class, Coach Price had the material to turn out an exceptional nine, as the majority of
the men were seasoned players.
Johnson did the greater part of -the pitching, ably assisted by Bedenk and Ziegler. Johnson took part in I3 games winnin
8 and losing 3, and a 1-1 I7 -inning tie with Gettysburg, which was, without doubt, the longest and most thrilling game ever played
on Patt F' ld. H' i i '
erson ie is master performance was the no-hit, no-run game against Fordham. During the season he struck out
135, allowed 56 hits and ranked second in batting. Bedenk pitched several games, winning 3 and losing 1. His regular position
was short-stop, where he played a fine game and contributed largely to Ursinus' success with his heavy hitting, usually for extra
bases. He th l d' b l ' i ' ' ' ' ' '
was e ea ing ase stea er with IZ to his credit, and led in run-getting with 25 Ziegler the reserve itch 't h d
. , p er, p1 c e
several games and should develop in-to a good pitcher. Mitterling was shifted from the infield to catching and, during the sea-
son, was a shining light by his brilliant catching and brilliant hitting. He led the team in hitting with an average of .435, secur-
ingonehitormo ' . H ' - 1' " ' ' '
re in every game e was second in run getting with 23, and third in stolen bases with 10.
Capt. Boyer was placed on first base, where, although a new position to him, he acquitted himself admirably until his hand
was broken. Adams then took his place for the remainder of the season, he played a remarkable game around -the initial sack
an was especially proficient in receiving low throws saving games on several occasions by doing so H l d th t ' fi
, . e e e eam ln eld-
ing, accepting 119 out of 121 chances. His hitting was not up to his form. Butler, who had substituted -the previous year, ram-
bled around the keystone sack. He fielded in fine style and his hitting was good. Reiff, a new man, was tried at third and
easily made good. He fielded in a creditable manner and was especially noted for his strong "whip." He did not bat so well
but was always dangerous in a pinch. l-le led in doubles with 8. Kennedy was at his old position in left field and, although
his hitting was not up to his standard, fielded' sensationally, saving several games by his spectacular catches. I-le was third in
base stealing with I I, and third in run getting with I5. Diemer, another substitute from I9I3, was tried out at center field and
soon showed the qualities of a 'Varsity player. I-le was a reliable batter and fielded like a veteran. l-le played short-stop when
Bedenlc pitched and here he was at home. Stugart was shifted from catching to right field and it was soon noticed that the change
Was for the good. A marked improvement was shown in his batting, he also fielded well. Miller was the chief substitute for
the season after Capt. Boyer's accident. 1
ln all, Ursinus had five men batting over 300, which, in part, explains her success. Out of I9 games played, I3 were
victories, 5 defeats and a I7-inning tie. Two of the defeats were extra inning games and in only one game was Ursinus beaten
by more than 2 runs. After the second game of the season, the team made a wonderful spurt, winning I I games in succession.
As a Whole, the team established an enviable record which, heretofore in the history of the college, has not been equaled.
The prospects for this year are even brighter than last year. ' Bedenk and Butler have not returned, but with the veterans.
Kennedy, Diemer, Stugart, Adams, Mitterling and Johnson as a nucleus, Ursinus should be heard from next spring in tlfte
realm of college baseball. g -

football Review ot 1914
Wg J HE Football season of IQI4 was the beginning of a new era. The resignation of the famous Dr. Price, to accept
the.pos1t1on of Athletic Director at Trinity College, ended one of the greatest eras of athletic supremacy that
Ursinus College has ever enjoyed. In response to Coach Gergesycall for candidates, fourteen men reported. , Of
KQISY these eleven remained from the previous season. These men, with the additional material from the Freshman class,
formed what seemed to be the perso-nnel of a winning -team. The schedule for I9I4 was the hardest in the history
of the college. ln the first game against Cornell, the team madeua creditable showing, having had but three days' practice
before the game. At Lafayette, the team made a new record, as this was the only Ursinus team, that ever played Lafayette
to a tie. A ' '
However, our visions of a victorious team were shattered after this game. From this time we were followed by a Hjinxng
injuries piled up in rapid succession and at no time, during the remainder of the season, was the full strength of the team repre-
sented in any game. C i
Gingrich, the premier tackle was severely injured, and although he entered several games and played brilliantly, he was
handicapped with a badly twisted ankle. The left side of the line was ruined when Carter left school and O'l-loulihan was
barred from the team for delinquency in his studies. Kennedy, the dashing quarterback,was kept out of several games because
of a dislocated knee. In the face of all these reverses theiteam of l9l4 was one that had the fighting spirit and, throughout
the season, had the unity and coherence that made a successful season, although not winning the majority of its games.
Kerr, at center, put up a good, consistent game throughout the season. Schaub and Kichline, the invincible pair, were
towers of strength on both the offense and defense. Kennedy, although crippled, played a flashy game at quarter, and
when not able to play was admirably replaced by the versatile Light, whose ability enabled him to fill any position. Clark,
Bowman and Brown were the star ends, Brown also playing tackle. Enke, a new man, proved a find and made a very de-
pendable guard. Minich played guard and tackle. and outweighed by every man who opposed him, has the exceptional record
of outplaying his opponent in every game. Ctt, Evans, Hartranft and Peterson, although not making regular berths, worked
hard and faithfully and deserve special commendation for helping to round out the ,Varsity. V Q
The crowning success of the season was the sensational stand against Franklin and Marshall, the game ending in a tie.
Mitterling and Minich are the only members who will graduate this year. . With the present material at hand and under the able
guidance of Coach Gerges, the prospects for 1915 are exceptianally bright. RALPH MITTERLING, 'l5.

THE- RESERVE FOOTBALL TEAM
Review of l9l4 Reserve Foosball Ceam
. . O Coach Gerges' call for Football candidates, issued in the early part of September, only seven of last year,s Re-
W serve -team presented themselves. Of this number, Brown and Clark succeeded in winning regular berths on the
'Varsity, and Sellers was forced to give up the game early in the season. Thus the nucleus, about which the l9l4
Reserve Football team was to be built, consisted of Bahner CCenterJ, Wiest fEndJ, l-lartranft Cfluardl, and Auster-
berry CQuarterbackD. The Freshman class, fortunately, was rich in material, and Evans, l-lavard, Will, Deitz,
Fisher, Greiman, lVleegan, Lape and Witman soon succeeded in securing positions on the team.
The Reserves were confronted with a very difficult proposition when the season began, for it was necessary for them to
whip the 'Varsity, which for the most part consisted of light and inexperienced material, into a condition which would enable
them to cope successfully with the hardest schedule that any Ursinus Football team has ever faced. That they performed their
task with marked success is evinced by the fact that the 'Varsity held Lafayette to a tie score, a feat never before accomplished
by an Ursinus team. The personnel of the Reserve team was made up of hard and persistent workers, and the avidity with which
they absorbed the F. 81 M. plays and the skill with which they used them against the 'Varsity, can only be appreciated by
those who saw the gallant stand of the Ursinus warriors against the onslaughts of the mighty conquerors of Penn.
But three games were played by the Reserves this season, and, considering the fact that we had one of the best Reserve
teams that Ursinus has ever had, we would, at first sight, feel inclined to censure those whose du-ty it was to arrange a schedule.
However, we must not be too critical, for when we consider that a new coach had but recently assumed control and that the
presence of the Reserve team was required each minute, we cannot help bu-t feel that the authorities were justified in pursuing the
course which they did. '
Bridgeton High was the first team to face the Reserves, and, playing like a machine, our team managed to emerge from
the battle with a 6-6 score. The next game was with an independent team from Spring Ci-ty, and we were defeated Zl-0.
During this game, Evans, at Fullback, displayed his real ability as a line-plunger. Time and again he smashed through the
heavy Spring City line for five and ten yard gains. The final game of the season, with Royersford, was lost 7-6, and, although
defeated, the Reserves deserve much credit for the plucky fight which -they put up against seemingly overwhelming odds. The
fortunes of war were with the opposing team, and, despite Ott's brilliant playing at Tackle, Royersford succeeded in winning
the game by a narrow margin. - -
Taken as a whole. the season can be said to have been a very successful one. Evans and Captain l-lartranft showed 'Var-
sity calibre, and, inasmuch as the latter is the only man lost by graduation, the prospects for next season are very bright.

Review of ms Basket Ball Season a
it b team representing Drexel Institute in the Thompson Memorial Field Cage on anuary 9 Preliminary practice
jj A began when the new floor was completed shortly after the Thanksgiving recess It was necessary to devote most
of the time in December -to the rudiments of the game, so that Coach Gerges might secure a good idea of his mate-
' rial. Throughout this month the squad consisted of about thirty men, but with the resumption of practice at the
end of the Chris-tmas holidays the 'Varsity squad was reduced to fifteen members. This squad consisted of Adams, Schaub,
Kerr, Light, l-lavard, Will, Gingrich. Evans, I-lain, Yost, Rutledge, Clark, Mitterling, Kennedy and l-larrity. '
After selecting the Squad, less than a week remained to whip a team into shape to meet the strong Drexel five. Neverthe-
less, the Philadelphia quintet was defeated by a safe margin. Two weeks later Moravian College sent a fast team to College-
ville to suffer the fate of the Drexel aggregation. Our first defeat of the season was administered at Philadelphia at the hands
of Temple University. Perkiomen Seminary was easily defeated in the field cage as the prelude to a series of reverses. Five
consecutive games, played on foreign floors, resulted in four defeats and one victory. Our conquerors were: Franklin and Mar-
shall, Drexel Institute, Moravian College and Lebanon Valley Collegeg while Pennsylvania Military College was our victim.
The last game of the season resulted in a defeat for Wyoming Seminary in -the field cage.
Thus, in ten contests, we were victors five times and tasted defeat equally as often. The team was undefeated on the
home floor. Although not an excuse for the defeats, it is significant that all the floors, on which the team was beaten, were
considerably smaller or narrower than the field cage court.' .
Of the players. Captain Light was the only one to play every minute of the season. Schaub, Kerr and Havard also played
very consistently, while Adams. although handicapped on different occasions by a sprained ankle, put up a plucky game. Will
substituted frequently enough to win his letter. Referee Brokaw was commended by all the visiting teams for his fairness.
Cn the wholeg the first season was successful. and in view of the fact that none of this year's team will be lost through
graduation, we may reasonably expect a better team next year.
ASKET BALL was inaugurated very auspiciously as a recognized sport at Ursinus when the 'Varsity defeated the

Suggestions for a "Greater tlrsinus'
WHEREAS, we firmly believe that the college is not
conducted on an economic basis, we beg leave -to submit the
following articles, which, we think, would be a step toward
the realization of a "Greater Ursinusf' Therefore, we rec-
l. That the help in the kitchen be done away with and that
the college girls be substituted' in their stead, the girls to
be selected from the Freshman and Sophomore classes.
2. That HDutchy', Baden be eliminated from the faculty,
thus striking French and German from the curriculum. .
3. That the services of Htludgei' Bordner be dispensed with
and that Keen Wies-t be employed to heat the rooms with
hot air. -
That ul-lenn Ancona be requested to resign his position
on the college quartet and that he be replaced by "Assist-
ant Engineern Irvin Wood. A
That the youth of Ursinus, henceforth, procure -their cakes
at Shreiner and Clevian Halls instead of ambling down to
That the upper-classmen shear the locks of all the F resh-
men and that the college authorities deduct twen-ty cents,
therefor, from the deposit fee of each and every Freshman.
That the sum of two dollars CSZOOD be charged for ex-
tended examinations instead of the present charge, which
is one dollar C5151 .OUP g said sum -to beused for the purchase
of "Silence" signs for the college library.
Coasts on our Faculty
I-lere's to the men of our Faculty,
The men whom we love so dearg
And here's to Qld Boots Baden,
Who fills all the Freshies with fear.
f-lere's to President Cmwake,
A man who has plenty of "biz,"
If a trip to Bermuda he fails to take,
l-le'll be laid up with the 'srheumatizf'
I-lere's to Pop Kline with a Whort-en his nose
A jolly old fellow is hey
He needs no one to darn his hose,
For Sarah darns them free.
l-lere's to Rapp with that cute little grin,
Who was known as the college copg
For finding air passed through capillary tubes
He finally rose to the top.
I-lere's to Doc Smith of poetical fame,
Who is quite well versed in grammar,
I-le likes football and the national game,
And is especially fond of the "Dramar."
Here's to Prof. Clawson with a look serene
Who dopes out the Math with ease.
In Math and Physics he's really quite keen,
And his pupils keep working like bees.
Here's to Doc Beardwood, good-natured and kind,
Who is never Without a smile.
A fault with him you cannot find,
No matter how hard the trial.
Here's to Carl Vernon, a philosopher Wise,
Who was down with the chicken-pox.
Too long in his slumbers, each morning helies,
Neglecting his curly red locks. I
Here's to George Handy, "Down with the booze,
Too much of it's being sold." .
Pooh! Pooh! l've forgotten my overshoes,
And l've taken a very bad cold.
Here's to the bird of the college,
You'll find him wherever you go.
He hands out biological knowledge,
And in Lab you can hear him Crow.
Here's to Prof. Hirsch and his history notes,
And outside readings galore.
He tells of old castles with protecting moats,
And the theses Luther nailed to the door
Here's to Prof. Yost, the all-around man,
He's a faculty member no doubt.
He runs the library on a very wise -plan, g
And we wouldn't dare leave him out.

Then appeared a Freshman pair

Exhausted, they retreated,
But not defeated.
