INDIANA Ifartmorb r RfrjE ' nave worked on this volume with energy and deter- mination, and in presenting it, we are aware that it is not what we tried to make it, or would like to have it, but we trust our critics will not cast it aside as worthless. To those who have not attended Valparaiso University, this will give an insight into our college life; to those who have, it will call up pleasant memories of our school days. Taken as a whole, this book represents the University in all the different phases in a way that nothing else can, and we hope that when the 1914 Record appears before the public, it will not be found wanting in the essential elements of a publication of its kind. A large part of the success of this book is due to the effic- ient Board of Managers, who have handled the financial part of the work so well. We desire especially to express our thanks to Paul Mather, Staff Artist, for the art work, and to Lindsay I. Sharpnack , Assistant Editor-in-Chief, for his faithful service and many valuable suggestions. EDITOR-IN-CHIEF TO Imtjamtu 3Frmiklm Militants, A. M PROFESSOR OF LITERATURE, VALPARAISO UNIVERSITY As a slight memorial of our affections, as an apprecia- tion of his high ideals, as a trivial testimony of the loyalty he has ever commanded from the student bodies for many years, as a token of our regard for his un- selfishness, his morality, his courtesy, and his trib- utes in our behalf, this volume of The Record is dedi- cated ®fo gfcnrito HENRY BAKER BROWN Valparaiso University stands, to-day, the wonderful achievement of two great and good men and will stand, to-morrow, a most glorious monument to their memories. The founder and only President of this Institution was born in Ohio in 1847, received his education at Lebanon, graduated from there in 1871, and taught for the following two years in a Normal School at Republic, Ohio. Great ideas filled the vigorous brain of this youthful Professor of Mathematics. " Why can ' t I estab- lish a school: ' " thought he. So it was that in 1873 Mr. Brown, in the face of great difficulties, planted the seedling which, under his ceaseless effort, has developed into the great University that it now is. For forty years his vigor, yea his very life blood has been poured into this school. 8 OLIVER PERRY KINSEY On a December morning in 1849 the first ruddy rays of the rising- sun pierced the windows of a Quaker cottage in eastern Ohio and kissed the tiny head of the new-born ( )liver Perry Kinsey and left their bright- ness in his hair. After being graduated at Lebanon, Ohio, with the degree of Bachelor of Arts in 1871, Mr. Kinsey taught for a number of years and then in 1881 came to Valparaiso to take up his life ' s great work. In no small degree is the present greatness of this Institution due to the efforts of its Vice-President. But what is there to say of him? Just this: We love our dear old red-headed " Pa " Kinsey and he is " father " to us all. He teaches us more than to make a living; he teaches us how to live — how to live a life devoted to the service of our fellow men. HENRY KINSEY BROWN Have you met Henry Kinsey plain When he did not speak to you I And did you speak to him again How strange it is and New? Thus paraphrased this verse bespeaks his universal nature. Though he is the " boy " of the faculty it is in years only, for he has proven his ability to successfully deal with matters under his care. " He is affable, democratic, accommodating. " His memory is stupendous. He remem- bers well the students that were here since 1885, if only you mention their names. The success of Athletics to a great measure lias been due to his active interest and support and more particularly to his untiring patience and continued patrimony. He has shown himself a leader that Athletic supporters are glad to follow. Remember, he speaks to all he meets. H. N. CARVEK This exponent of conservatism regards men and women as the most interesting things in the world. At any rate, lie would make the conservation of men and women more important than that of forests and coal supplies. In other words, he would emphasize strongly the best we have learned in the long experience of the race. When this is done, he thinks there will be time enough to change safely the existing order of things. He is a " Darwinian evolutionist " and has little use for the theory of " mutation. " Lincoln, Marshall, and Newton are his ideal characters. He classifies people by the position he thinks Homer or Shakespeare would give them as characters in their productions. He thinks too much commercialism is had and one of the chief causes for the decay of nations. He has come to the conclusion that few things can he taught, that each one ' s destiny must he worked out largely by himself. GEO. W. XEET Prof. Geo. W. Neet, Pg. D., Dean of the Educational Department of Valparaiso University, and recognized authority on horticulture; a thorough scholar, a prince among teachers, and the idol of his students. His large classes arc an index to the esteem in which he is held. He delights us with his stories; he touches our hearts with his kindness; he helps us to a higher and better life by his noble example. His life is shedding an influence for good throughout the whole land, not only by means of his many excellent books along educational lines; but also through the vast army of young people who have received his inspiration and are going forth to impress the teachings of this master of education on the lives of the coming generations. ne of his marked characteristics is his immeasurable admiration for Herbert Spencer. 12 IIVEUSITY GEORGE D. TIMMONS, S. B., Ph. C. George D. Timmons, B. S., Ph. C, entered Valparaiso University in 1894 and was graduated in 1897, receiving the medal offered for the highest proficiency in his class. After teaching elsewhere for two years he was called back to take charge of the chemical Laboratories. His rise has been rapid and every promotion more than merited. Head of the Department of Pharmacy for five years his untiring efforts have placed the school in the front rank and now with him as Dean the future success of the Department is assured. Although city alderman, business man, teacher, and Dean with manifold cares and duties continually pressing upon him, he is ever an optimist and is never too busy to give to the most humble student time, advice, and words of cheer. In every state and in every quarter of the globe Graduates in Pharmacy remember with pleasure their days at Valparaiso and say with fervor: " Old Dick, God bless him! " 13 JOHN HOFFEK CLOUD " His voice makes you feel as though chilled steel were being run through you, " said a student who had been the object of a reproof by Professor Cloud. The simile was fair — so was the reproof. The seriousness with which he takes his duty as an instructor gives Professor Cloud a cold, impersonal character well calculated to produce results. About the only time the Professor reveals a really human touch is when he is keenly disappointed at some of our failings. Professor Cloud graduated from the Scientific and Classical depart- ments of Valparaiso. He taught for a time at Johns Hopkins. 14 sheerest- ieheim R C. YEOMAN Dean of the Engineering Dept. Although he is one of the youngest members of the Faculty, there is no one, who, in so short a time, has done more for any one department than has Prof. Yeoman. He is an energetic and ardent supporter of anything which will help build up either his own department or the school as a whole. His success is largely due to the fact that he is not only a teacher but a true friend and companion to all, and especially to those who make up his classes. . ■■ i KATHEKINE E. CAEVEE. The surname is significant. If any one is reluctant to believe let him enter her Latin classes and persist in loafing. But he, who studies Latin for reasons other than that it is compulsory will find her a true and sympathetic teacher. Equo ne credite; Otiosis non est locus, Discede, morator; these are her mottoes. She has been chosen repeat- edly as toast-mistress for the annual banquet given by the Scientific Class. At repartee, few are her equal. Miss Carver is a graduate of the Valparaiso High School, the Val- paraiso University, and the Cornell University, where she received her master ' s degree. 16 L. F. BENNETT When Professor Bennett tells a story or joke everybody laughs; not only because they are always good stories well told but because he finds a new story before he tells one. He has the happy faculty of making his work interesting. Nobody ever sleeps in bis class, and everybody simply has to get bis work whether lie wants to or not, He won a place in the heart of his third Zoology class by bis mid-term examination. He is a real friend of the students and besides being a good instruc- tor he is a good all round fellow. 17 » w»wfcMfriiiaim5igte l JOHN E. ROESSLEE John E. Roessler, A. M., Prof, of German at Valparaiso University, is loved and revered by all his students. His infectious good humor, his kindly spirit, and his strict adherence to duty appeal to all true lov- ers of knowledge. He is a jolly good fellow, likes a good time, and knows how to have it. Long may his voice be heard in " den Deutchen Geschichten unci Liedern. " 18 O ROLLO A. TALCOTT Graduate of Cavenovia Seminary, 1904, and of Syracuse University, 1909. Has also attended the King ' s School of Oratory and the Summer courses at Syracuse University, and has studied with teachers from Cumnock School of ( )ratory, University of Alabama, Ohio Wesleyan Uni- versity, Emerson School of Oratory, and Chicago University. Mr. Tal- cott has also had the rare opportunity of studying with the three great- est teachers of public speech in America: J. L. Winter, of Harvard University, G. H. Clark of Chicago University and Arthur E. Philips of the Philips School of Oratory, Chicago. Mr. Talcott has been Professor of Public Speaking in Hiram Col- lege, Hiram, Ohio. Also at Mt. Union College, Alliance, Ohio. Instruc- tor of Public Speaking in Columbia University and Dean of Department of Public Speaking, Valparaiso University 1913 — . Further notice of Mr. Talcott will be given in his own department. 19 MASON L. WEEMS Everyone has taken sides regarding Professor Weems; he cannot he taken indifferently. He is disliked by as many as like him, but all feel strongly concerning him. There can be no doubt as to his efficiency as an instructor. The vision of a pencil poised threateningly over his record is enough to " cow " us all into being more or less studious, and a certain dry wit that finds most frequent expression in sarcasm is also of service in keepini ; us on the path of duty. Still, all of those who have had a really serious disagreement with Professor Weems assert that he is really likeable. Professor Weems completed the Scientific and Classic courses of Valparaiso, and, preparatory to teaching Physiology, took considerable work in the Chicago College of Medicine and Surgery. MILO JESSE BOWMAN " Who runs the hill? " " The Lawyers, " and Dean M. Jesse Bow- man Jr., the " little giant " of the faculty of Valparaiso University " runs " the " wild and woolly " lawyers and teachers them Law and life. Madison, Indiana, produced our Law Dean in .July, 1874, and Hanover College, the University of Chicago, and the Indianapolis College of Law gave him his formal education. He taught school, practiced Law in Indianapolis, and was Assistant State Law Librarian before he was called in 1907 to assume control of the school of Law in this University. Dean Bowman knows himself and he knows his students. He is active in politics, fraternalism, and civic affairs, and he has a delightful fam- ily. He is a public speaker of great ability, a very successful teacher, and a profound thinker of great erudition. 21 HOMER F. BLACK It matters not how hot it may be in room " 3 " Professor Black always has enough surplus energy to keep his Astronomy class awake, and himself in motion. He never tells a story but he always has the attention of his class except sometimes at observation and then " there ' s a reason. " He has done much to bring the Manual Training Depart- ment to its present position. He has been a faithful member of the faculty for eight years. 22 A. A. WILLIAMS Prof. Williams lias served our institution in many varied capacities. He is best known as a mathematician and it is perhaps from this that he has come to be known as " A-Square. " He has taught us one great lesson in promptness and in application to duty for in his years of service he has been absent from his classes but very few times. The careful discipline which he has always enforced has won for him the lasting love of all his students. 23 •:-:-:-:-:-x -:- fct :♦:♦ sR 1NIVEP5ITV CALVIN S. HOOVER, A. M. De an of the History Department. He strikes a daring blow at all Farce and stands out boldly for the rights of man as shown by history. His interpretation of history is so vivid that his pupils see a mental pic- ture of the past. He is esteemed by all who know him. 24 OLIVER E. DAMRON Professor Damron ' s strongest characteristic is his interest in his work. He has what he calls a sort of habit of delivering short sermon- ettes at intervals but they are not so bad at that. He holds a very dear place in the hearts of many of his students which he has won through fairness and sympathy towards their earnest endeavors. He is tall, lean, and even hungry looking at times but we are assured that he has no cause for the latter.- 25 MRS. E. W. AGAR Tlie different classes which go out from year to year are all impressed with the work they have done with Mrs. Agar, both in class and in private work. Her work is ever practical and interesting. Mrs. Agar has attended the Columbia School of Oratory and has her Masters degree from Valparaiso University Department of Expression. She has also studied with some of the best instructors of Public Speech in America, among whom are Professor Arthur E. Phillips and Professor Klein. 26 WILLIAM F. ELLIS Professor William F. Ellis, Pg. M., Professor of Pedagogy and His- tory of Education. His mind is stored with the facts, methods and names of the old Masters of Education. He mentally goes with them through their struggles for the advancement of education. Froebel, Rousseau, and Herbert are constant companions of his and their work is indelibly printed on the minds of his students. When all is said and done, we can honestly say of him, " He was a man. ' ' : T. L. HYTTINEN For the past two years Mr. Hyttinen has been Professor of manual training in Valparaiso University. He came from far away Finland, the home of manual training. Prior to his coming to Valparaiso, he was superintendent of one of the largest furniture manufactories in Chi- cago. The rapidity and accuracy of his work always insures the con- fidence of his pupils. His sunny disposition always enlivens the grind of the shop and the class room. May his tribe increase. 28 TSaaaaagr HELEN AXE BROWN Her popularity among the students is due in large part to the fact that she reflects the democratic spirit of her father, H. B. Brown. Every one is her friend and none so lowly as not to receive her warm recognition. Her pop- ularity as a musician however is based on her thorough training and finished education in h?r chosen work. After completing the course of music in Valparaiso University under Harold Butler, she studied extensively under Karleton Hackett of th? American Conservatory of Music, Chicago; Madame Esparanza Garrique and Isadore Luckstone in New York City; and William Woods of London. Her experience as a soloist has ranged from the Baptist Temple, Los Angeles, to assistant Artist with the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra. Yet we all call her " Hslen. " HARRIET BRUCE-ROE Piano, Voice, and Organ Teachers: Wm. Castle, Mrs. Fenno-Adler, Mr. Borowski, Sr. Alfiero, Mr. Ruilfrok, Dr. Falk, and others. Graduate m2dal course at Valparaiso University Conservatory of Music; diploma course at the Chicago Music College. Mrs. Roe is in her fourteenth year as taacher in this University and has done much in placing the Music D?partment in its splendid preemi- nence. For several years she had charge of the staging of operas and appeared in many in different roles, both here and in Chicago. Among these might be mentioned " Tne Mikado, " " Faust, " " Sleeping Queen, " etc., etc. Her ex- cellent reputation as a teacher is due to her musicianship, her sympathy for her students, and above all to her refinement and absolute sincerity. •J! I FANNIE S. AMSTUTZ After graduating from the Valparaiso Uni- versity of Music, Miss Amstutz studied in Chi- cago. Later she spent two years in travel and study, coming back to take up the work as teacher in the school from which she grad- uated. Although Miss Amstutz has taught only a few years, she has created an unusual intar- est in music on the part of her students and has disproved the old adage about a " prophet in his own country. " Her recent public appearances at Gary and elsewhere have elicited very favorable com- ment that would have done credit to a much elder teacher. H. ROWLAND ROBERTS " H. R. " ! Handsome? No, not A— toll, but a good old scout. Roberts is one musician that can handle a choir and keep out of trouble. His students and friends feel free to approach his just as a friend, and are not awed by any assumption of dignity, yet when it comes time for business, no one commands more respect. Mr. Roberts has enjoyed excellent advantage in his musical education. Among other teach- ers he had four years under the great Hinshaw, now Metropolitan star. To Mr. Roberts must be given the credit of reviving the Opera in Valparaiso University, when " Chimes of Nor- mandy " appeared with such success this year at the Memorial Opera House. It is mysteriously hinted that before many moons, he will be giving privat? lessons in Welch to a certain other member of the Music faculty. 30 MABEL SPOONER-SCHULDT Piano Graduate and Post graduate Sisters of Providence, St. Mary ' s of the Woods; Graduate and Post Graduate Conservatory of Music, Val- paraiso University; pupil Emil Liebling; pupil Gertrude Radle Paradis; pupil Mary Wood Chase; pupil Harrison Wild; Member of Faculty since 1900. " As such she has endeared herself to a large following of pupils; and with the excellent standard she lias maintained, continu- ously increased this following. An enthusiastic and earnest personality combined with increasing endeavor in bringing out the best in her pupils, is characteristic of her. This combined with fine musicianship easily account for her success. JEpartmgtttH 1 |RS W 1 I - - if " It : i l ■ i_ - " ' ' - ;:;: S J fr - r ' " " J " ' j CLASS OFFICERS. President (J. T.

Realizing the true worth of his mental powers, he decided to join the army of " Valpoites, " and thereby develop them. This he did and has certainly been true to his ranks, as he has remained with the " ites " for five years. John has been an excellent student. As a German actor he is a star. As president of the " Minnesota Society " he proved his ability. He expects to be a student in the University of Chicago next year. KATRYX DAWSON, VENUS SNYDER, Hookstown, Pennsylvania Valparaiso, Indiana A maiden fair, with sun-kissed hair, A face serene, her age ? teen ; A smiling face, a queenly grace: A friend she ' ll be eternally.

Our class historian. ROLAND OBENCHA1N, South Bend. Indiana The only member of the class who has become weary of single blessedness. He is a member of the " Administrative Board " and an authority on the issuing of diplomas. He has therefore, given himself three diplomas and will receive another from th? Law department of Yale University next year. G. T. FRANKLIN, Big Clifty, Kentucky The biggest, best, and brainiest one of our class. Has taught a number of years, and will continue this work for many years to come. He is our President and he fills the chair well. JOHN E. BEHNKE, Newark, New Jersey He is much older than he really appears to be. His history is rare. He came to Valparaiso with the express intention of satisfying his intellectual appetite. William J. Bryan is his ideal. He deserves glory for his strenuous efforts in undertaking the financial responsibilities of issuing the Classic part of this Annual. MAXIMILIAN W. MALCZEWSKI, Braddock, Pennsylvania Malczewski is one of the boys who can always be relied on to do what is entrusted to him and do it well, as was shown by the drawing which he made for the " Classics. " He has solved an all-important problem necessary to success in this life, that of being able to adapt one ' s salt ' to all requirements and situations. That he possesses this wonderful characteristic we all know from his wonderful per- formances in Tacitus. R. F. RUSSELL, Rome, Pennsylvania He wants to know lots of things that can ' t b3 answered, and several things that he can ' t think of. Will try teaching in South Dakota next year. GRETA SMITH, Hastings, Michigai She is " a phantom of delight, " And sees in Life the good and bright. A friend in need for those in woe. A happy maid from crown to toe. C. E. BOOTH, Byrnsides, West Virginia The Lone Star of the astronomy class. He took geology merely to specialize in " Bergs " — not ice bergs, however. He will enter Indiana University next year. EDWARD H. LOCHOW1TZ, ■ Racine, Wisconsin This is a worthy product mainly of Valparaiso University. He was trusted with complete mas tery in conducting the Typewriting Department. Often times, he disappeared on heavenly sojourns interviewing the godly Muses with whom he became infatuated. The Class prudently appointed him as its representative in the gentle art of rhyming. MATHIAS S. HURTH, Eden Valley, Minn. He is a very attentive student in class as all know who took logic the Winter term. Although gentlemanly and courteous in manner he do?s not seem to be charmed by the fairer sex. " To be wise and love exceeds man ' s might. " H3g3ga3EEJi IN1VE1P5ITV CLYDE M. CUMMINS. Harrison, Ohio He is a graduate of Freeport High School in Ohio; and early began teaching. He came to Valparaiso to satisfy his earnest desire of leading an educational career. " Cummins, " it has been remarked, " is the best-looking young man among the Classics. " This assumption is probably due to his natural inclination of studying the Classics. BERT K. ORR, Scranton. Pennsylvania " That man that hath a tongue, I say, is no man. If with his tongue he cannot win a woman. " But he has won a woman. Ergo, . The sight of him is good for sore eyes. He has many friends, for he is a friend himself. T. F. ELLIS, Calhoun, Kentucky A real Kentuckian, but thinks Wisconsin offers great opportunities. He has specialized in literature, more especially the Victorian Period. He will draw a salary as teacher next year, and then enter Chicago University.

FRANKLIN. |HK problem for discussion is one in which difficulty is encoun- tered when an attempt is made to include it in a simple state- ment. To get the locus of a problem is not always easy and when one does obtain it, he sometimes finds his curves leading to infinity. In a measure that is the nature of the problem confronting me. Now, when we have some problem, the comprehension of which we find difficult, our best resort is to an analogy. Let us suppose that a colony of emigrants arc traveling to a distant country, where they have planned to make their home. When these people started on their journey they had in mind some definite task to perform. They dreamed of their future home, which they idealized to their own standard of perfection; they were all enthusiastic. They studied the routes leading to their future abode, and felt sure that many bridges would have to be built, many rough places made smooth before they would be able to reach it. They went forth realizing they must keep constantly in mind the proper direction to go, and the goal of their journey. They knew well that if they lost their course, if they forgot what they were looking for, their ambitions could never be realized. They knew that if, after spending much time in cutting roads through the wildnerness and building bridges, if they stopped to admire and call others to note what they had done, they would be likely to lose sight of their real aim. So there dawned upon us some time in our youthful lives, that there is a goal to be reached, a something, which we conceived of as our " best. " There was in our minds an aim, probably vague and somewhat ideal, toward which we must work. But to reach it we fore- saw much would have to be done: bridges would have to be constructed and avenues of approach opened. It dawned upon us that the comple- tion of a general school course was one of the necessary bridges for construction, before even a start could be made. We felt that we could not linger too long, admiring the work of the course accomplished, how- ever laudable in itself, and reach that " best. " 41 •.-.•;■■;- :•:•;•-■ .;■-.; ■-. : ».. .■ ;■. . ■:■: ' ' . ' ' ■ To examine our subject a little more thoroughly, let us review some of the ideas which those ancient, astute philsophers thought out con- cerning the Good. One school came to the conclusion that perfection of man consisted in his having perfect knowledge; perfection of intellect was their aim. Another school taught that pleasure is the aim to be sought. Still another class taught that perfection of will is the true end. Now, when we take into consideration the idea of perfect knowl- edge, we are confronted by the examples of so many of great knowledge, whose lives we would not care to live, because they were not happy. Even Solomon, reputed the wisest man of all times, said: " All is vanity and vexation of spirit. " Evidently, Solomon was not a happy man, and it is not natural for us to conceive of anything as our goal, which does not bring happiness with it. Pleasure appeals to us more strongly. But as soon as we think of pleasure as an end, we ask almost unconsciously: " What kind of pleasure " ? We at once begin to classify pleasures and find we are in no better position to solve the problem than before. If pleasure means simply the absence of pain, than who can deny but that the Hottentot of Africa has found the highest pleasure of existence? If pleasure is to be defined in this way, the hog wallow- ing in mire may he considered as having reached the true end. There is a wonderful difference even in the pleasures of civilized people. Who for a moment would say that the pleasures of " tangoing " are the same as those of poetry ? So, if we say pleasure is the goal of existence, so many difficulties are encountered in attempting to define the term, that it does not take us anywhere. Perfection of will appeals to us stronger on first notice. For who would be so happy as one who could follow the course which he wills? But even if we were able to will whatever we desire to do, there is the " desire " back of the " will " which has to be taken into consideration. We might will to do that which would bring the greatest sorrow upon ourselves, unless the desire were good, and the nature of our desires must in some way be related to our knowledge. The result of this discussion only puts us face to face with the fact that happiness in some way is connected with the end to be sought, that thinking, feeling, and willing are closely related, that there is more of unity in the thinking process than we had anticipated at the starting point. Our reasoning will not lead us to a more satis- factory result, if we attempt to prove the true end sought lies in the perfection of intellect, feeling, and will combined. About the only sat- isfaction we get out of it is the feeling that they are all necessarily the 42 means to the end we are seeking, bridges and roads, as it were, which must be established before the goal can be reached, tools by which true aim can be cultivated. Let ns lay aside our former speculations and attack the problem from another viewpoint. Let ns forget that knowledge, feeling, or will in their perfections, either one or the other, or all combined, have been considered as possibilities. I presume most of us remember vividly that form of punishment, which our parents inflicted upon us by com- pelling us to remain away from our playmates, confined in a room. 1 am. sure we all found this the most severe form of punishment. To separate one altogether from his fellow creatures has always been con- sidered a punishment worse than death. Then, the cause of our want- ing to live is due to the fact that others are living. To carry the idea further, suppose we were compelled, for instance, to see Hamlet played alone, would the pleasure be the same as if others were with us? How many times have we related having seen something striking and then close by saying: " How 1 wish you had been with me " ? We never read a good book without getting more pleasure from the reading, if we know our friends have read it too. We could multiply instances with- out number. This seems to give us a sort of insight into the nature of the problem. Suppose we attack the problem in this manner: " Here I am, a youth living on this planet, not of my own choice, neither had I any- thing to do with the selection of my ancestors, therefore I am what 1 am largely by nature, with certain capacities and limitations, an inher- itance impossible for me to change. All I can do is to find out what my capacities and limitations are and then do what 1 can to convert potential into actual, the static into the dynamic. 1 find easy access to great quantities of experience, much of which has cost my forefathers intense suffering. I find I do not have to concern myself about the establishment of a government. Laws, customs, institutions in great numbers have already been prepared for me. T find others with capaci- ties different to myself, and consequently better fitted to do work of a different nature. It is plainly my business to find out what I can do best, and then, whatever it is, ' 1 surely shall obtain the greatest happi- ness for myself and contribute most toward the happiness of others by doing this well. To find out about this, 1 shall get at my command some of the most important experiences of the race. When 1 have thought 4:5 over this rather carefully, I shall then be better prepared to decide where I am best fitted to serve. " Thus the youth reasons and I believe correctly. Any true aim is a social one. With these things in mind, we have been searching out the past few years some of the richest experiences of the human race. We have delved into those storehouses of experience gathered from three great sources: the Hebraic, the Teutonic, the Classic. We go forth with a new bridge constructed; new tools are in our possession; our faces are toward the goal. tPb ■ ,iiin - iflf f 1! 1 i«lii»k -A M iKP-j ' JKkM:i : : j - fb. :■-:--- -£3 44 CLASSIC CLASS HISTORY 1914. Preface. LL serious students of this profound bit of history should have access to all Valparaiso University Annuals for the past four years, a University Catalogue for 11)12 and 191. ' and some good work on " How to Keep Awake While Reading Class Histories. " Old annuals can be bought at Card ' s second hand store for half their original price and catalogue will be sent to any address on application at the College Office. Wall maps are essentia ' in studying Ancient History hut satisfac- tory results may be obtained in connection with this if the reader will consult the Map of College Hill which is supplied free of charge to every one on the first day of each term. No photographs are used, but an admissable collection of Picture Post Cards including, " Valpo, " The Hill, the Profs, and Sager ' s can be bought at any store on the Hill at the rate of six for five cents. These will all be found helpful in giving vividness and interest to the subject. To vitalize this Classic Class History still more there is nothing bel ter than an actual visit to each of the places of interest both on and about the Hill. To equip the mind with sufficient material for a thorough under- standing of the following no better works can be suggested than those of the Classical Historians Caesar, Livy, Plutarch, Sal lust and Tacitus. Much worn English translations of these can be obtained at reasonable prices. Now with these suggestions for study we may proceed to the sec- ond and last part which is Chapter I. This indeed is only introductory, for the entire class history though probably never in print will consist of seventeen chapters, all different, intensely interesting, each one a record of the doing of a Classic who in the year 1914 A. D. was brought within reach of that broader culture which has always been indispensable to the highest success in profes- sional life and equally indispensable to the honorable discharge of the common duties of citizenship. 4. ' ) ggasHMB If it is true that History is the narrative of what civilized man has done and this is a narrative of. what the Classics have done then the (lassies must be civilized (applied logic) so it will be unnecessary to go back to the Rough Stone Age of our lives or the Age of Metals or the Dark Ages, for a beginning, but the narrative will begin with that period when we showed signs of our highest civilization, namely when we decided to take the Classic Course. Ethically each member of the class was entitled to praise for doing this right act but being modest no one sought it. In fact there was little time for seeking praise for early in the year the class was busied by watching two of its members, who after being deprived of their exten- sive learning were taken to a vast wilderness on this " mundane spear, " there to develop again under circumstances different from those in the " City of Schools and Churches. " Both showed remarkable skill in taking care of themselves in this trying situation, one becoming the most dangerous foe of the rabbits and the other a wonder at picking black- berries. As their wants increased they found it convenient and bene- ficial to exchange rabbits for blackberries. This trade proved to be the beginning of a very complex Industrial System. None of the Classics have forgotten and never will forget the under- lying principles of Economics that were put before them in the simplest terms. The Classics go down in History as being among the most unselfish and most generous classes on the Hill. With placid minds they have watched the other classes send their select to the track meet and ball games there to win and lose the coveted honors inspired by the uproar of the howling side-lines and the clamor of the University Band, while they were content to allow one member of their class to adorn the semisub bench in the garb of the team whose average for the spring season was something between 1 and — 1. . It has not even been rumored that his part in the games had anything to do with this unusually low average. Some one has said that all statistics are lies. The following is not held as an exception to the rule. During the discussions on Psychology, Logic, Political Economy and Ethics, by actual count it was found that the (lassie girls were asked, individually these questions, " Now are there any questions on those things we were talking about? " and " All clear is it ? " seven hundred and twenty times. Seven hundred nineteen times there were no questions and a like number of times " all was clear. " This speaks highly for the girls whether any weight is attached to the 46 statistics or not, and from all accessable records, it is safe to say there is no danger but that they will always be attended with the greatest suc- cess and will be able to take care of themselves in a most womanly man- ner since they are neither suffragists nor suffragetts. The class as a whole, represents a body of young folks, who are thorough believers in tlie Classic Course. They believe that, " No language is dead so long as the people who study it are alive. " " When you get to the point where you can see nothing better than yourself, the jig ' s about up with you. " College only puts pupils on their feet if they have been sprawling on all fours. No College can help one walk. " " Science has dethroned luck, largely. " " If you are a teacher and want your pupils to learn and love a subject, you will teach it well whether you have been ground through a college course or not. " " As soon as you try to make a science of poetry it ceases to be poetry. " " A scien- tific man knows what he can afford to forget. " " Every tub must stand on its own bottom. " Virtue is its own exceeding gr eat reward, " and a host of other things, which they believe are as necessary to their well being as knowing that water is made of two parts H, and one part 0, that d=™ that the dentine of the teeth developes from the mesoderm, or that Caesar crossed the Rubicon in 49 B. C. The greatest part of the Classic Class History is still unmade, and this is no fit place for even a suggestion as to what it may be, but if only a few have been led to see some of the higher things of life and to know that education is for the purpose of making better men and better women, then the History will be much more likely to impress St. Peter favorably, than if they had neither seen nor heard those things. And if those truths have not been imprinted on their minds it is no fault of their worthy and esteemed Dean, Prof. H. N. Carver, of whom it can be respectfully said, as was said of Socrates, " He never preached, he only discussed, he taught not by formal lecture but through conversation, " 47 THE CLASSICS IN DAILY LIFE. EDWARD H. LOCHOWITZ. EMEMBER, friends, when from these halls you go, To hear in mind the words of that grand man " Who often voiced that Life holds more in store Than wheaten bread and products from the kine. Let not the efforts of the lady fair Be lost. She, too, in sober terms has sought, From early dawn to ev ' ning ' s growing dusk, To show that knowledge from the classics all Are vital even now in strivings for The golden recompense of industry. Let Hermes still a mess ' nger be and bring The tidings glad from sentiment realms unknown. Apollo, too, with strains so pure will lull Your weary limbs from day ' s enerving toil To restful poise and peace divine and sweet. The poet blind, but heav ' nly eyed, will guide You through despairing chaos dark and drear. The trials and signal victories of Rome ' s Poetic sire will prove that failure gives Another chance to look for Fortune ' s smile. And " mightiest Julius, " friends, we find to be A peer in conq ' ring barriers strong opposed. Spend not your precious time in raising swine, Nor toil from morn to dusk in " hoeing corn, " Nor milking cows nor raising tubers sweet, Without at times perusing works of men To whom we owe a debt of praise unpaid. Before the day ' s hard toil is first begun, Commune with Nature wise and learn from her That all is system fair and all is law. Begin the day with song and thoughts upraised. Lift up your soul and let it soar until Above the earthly things it holds full sway. 0, shade of Horace, come, we pray, and show Poor mortals on this mundane sphere that Life Is not an empty dream. And Schiller ' s bells, Peal forth thy wondrous news of hope and cheer. And poets all and songsters, too, combine With wielders of the brush and strive to fill Our lives with music ' s silvery notes and paint For us with colors rare the beauty which In Life you find so clearly pictured there. 49 KHBHVi ' fl ESnm THE IDEAL MAN. C. M. CUMMINS Classmates and Friends: OME, let us delve into the realms of the visionary, and see what the most idealized crown of creation should he. We are all fanciful. Phantasy is hred within us; it makes the poet sing, the painter paint; it aids the sculptor and is, indeed, a most important instrument in realized success. So, let us seek in the realms of fancy and deliheration for a little while, and see what this standard of perfection should, and perhaps will he. Our idea of perfection is immature, the true meaning of which rests in the far distant future. Man is the crown of creation, but he has not yet reached that model of excellence, which he thinks is most blameless; but for countless ages and with much resolution, he has been struggling with dauntless and beautiful courage, toward this imagined, complete excellence — the ideal. During this endeavor to free himself from his environment, many heroic and beautiful characters have lived; but with one exception none have attained the standard of the ideal personality. Today, the many varied interests of human society demand differ- ent types of manhood and womanhood, but this is due to the imperfec- tions of society. Society being a man made product obtains from hu- manity whatever it calls for. If the inward feeling of man were without a flaw, society would be a perfect production of human kind; but owing to the incompleteness of the human soul, a perfect social organization cannot be expected at the present time. But, reasoning from the past and seeing the mental and physical progress humanity has made, it is possible for us to look into that far distant future and expect a condi- tion of realized aspirations, an approached, if not complete perfection. It is unscientific to conceive the model of beauty, the ideal man, without granting him a sound body. Indeed his physique is of no mean importance, as he should possess the attributes of beauty. Some of the Greek and Roman conceptions of the human form, disclose to some exactness our idea of an imaginary, perfect, human structure. Without so much attention to his size, and reflecting only the physical character- istics of Mars, his beauty reveals with much precision the form which the ideal personality should have. Of course, too much stress must not 51 lie put on the man ' s physique, as health of body is more important. Personages exist, today to whom we ascribe perfect health, but our mental conception of sound health, as we know it is far from the ideal. Nothing is finished in this world. The universe is in its making, and everything in the universe is immature; then man is in his making. The mind is only in a stage of its development. Vastly more important than the physical is the mental nature of man, although the two must always cooperate. Man ' s mind is his greatest tool. Without it he would be classed with the beasts of the field in intellectuality; but in possession of this attribute he has risen from the plane of the herds of the field, into that power of mind, which, now, appears limitless. What an a] (prehension to conceive of a being with a perfect mind! Vet, to have an ideal man no other can be employed. The mind of the ideal feing sound, a perfect conscience would be the result; and if he be the standard of perfection he will obey his conscience, and the outcome of his actions will always be uplifting; no error would be in his judgment; and all his energy wou ' d be utilized in some good movement for the betterment of his kind. His attitude toward humanity would be to produce and not to destroy. He would always produce more than he consumed, or in other words he would not take more from the world than he contributed. What a beautiful idea of manhood and woman- hood! Vet, there are myriads of men and women living today, who possess this splendid attribute. Most of us possess some of the atti ' i- butes of the ideal man, but the regretful thing about it is, that no indi- vidual possesses all. Being in possession of these exalted attributes, the perfect mind and body, the individual will be conservative of his powers; he will utilize them for the sake of life; and will never use them in laying waste the good that is already extant. He will adapt himself to his environ- ment, and understand it through education. He will know himself, and will always act accordingly. He will possess the family virtues; he wiU be clean and pure; sympathetic towards those less fortunate than him- self; loyal to his family, and to his kind and to all things which con- cern the welfare of the world. He will sacrifice his own interests for the interests of others: he will be self-subordinate, and considerate of the wishes of his friends. The ideal man will be a religious being, but his religion will be a religion in accordance with nature ' s laws; not the kind which inspired the crusaders to action, not the faith which lead men to slaughter; but 52 VAL.PAPAU the true religion which serves as an incentive to action, and is ever ready to guide those actions. He does not necessarily have to be a member of a Presbyterian or a Methodist church, but he will belong to a church which has this motto, or a motto similar to this: " Our way of life is best because it works best. Our people are efficient, prosperous, and happy because we are a body who aid one another in the productive life. We waste none of our substance in vice and ostentation. We do not dissipate our energy in brawling, gambling or unwholesome habits. We conserve our resources of body and mind and devote them to the upbuilding of humanity. We do not strive for the things which satisfy but for a moment, we strive for the things which build us up and enable us and our children to be strong, to flourish and conquer. We believe that obedience to God means obedience to the laws of nature, which are but the uniform manifestations of his will. By practicing meekness or teachableness, we believe that we shall inherit the earth: whereas the unmeek, the unteachable who are dominated by pride or tradition, shall not. We offer you hard work, frugal fare, and severe discipline. " Give a man these characteristics ami he will he the ideal — the crown of creation. He will be a credit to the world, and will also be the world ' s conqueror. May this character live and have many companions of his kind. % jgjHg 3SB Mm KSDi |IU j 53 INTRODUCTION. In the pages allotted to the Engineering department we have tried to give some idea of the general characteristics of the men who compose the graduating class of 1914. The characteristics of these men are as varied as the different local- ities which they represent. Our associations together have made demo- crats of us all. We have tried to solve the same problems and have met with the same difficulties. We have worked together under the same teachers, and together we have learned to respect and to love them. We have attended the same hall games and cheered the boys both when winning and when losing. We have eaten together and talked and planned our work together. In fact we have become a sort of a brotherhood. We leave a long list of pleasant memories and look forward to many happy reunions where we can refresh our minds re- viewing together the pleasant times which we have spent here. This is our general introduction to the class which we are now proud to present individually. CLASS OFFICERS. President J. W. Schnebiy Vice Pros John A. McDonald Secretary George A.

George has a strong liking for Indiana products even though he makes his home in the rich irrigated valleys of Utah. Parker is our Hydraulic expert. ARCHIE JOHN WINNINGHAM, C. E., Blythedale, Missouri Member of Civil Engineering Society, Class Testator. The silent orator from Missouri who must always be shown. He is one of our clearest thinkers and a star mathematician. But Archie liked the " movies. " Until lately, he always went alone. Things are different in the summer term, you know. WARREN K. DILLON, B. C. E., Wilmington, Dalaware Alias " Cupid, " " Kip, " or " Dandy. " Member of Civil Engineering Society, Treas- urer of Senior Class. Warren has ' always been our chief collector. If we needed money we gave " Dandy " the job. He is our best baseball fan. At pres- ent, his interest centers most on Joliet. JOSEPH WILLIAM SCHNEBLY, C. E. Hagerstown, Maryland President of Graduating Class, President of Civil Engineering Society, Instructor in Mechanical Drawing. He has seldom been absent from class and has always made high grades, even in Sagerology. He has an essay on " The Benefits of Good Roads to Our Rural Schools, (and Sclioolma ' ms). " PAUL ALBERT EDWARD FLUX, C. E., Portsmouth, New Hampshir; Member of the Civil Engineering Society and Temple Society, baseball and foot- ball representative, Treasurer of Athletic Association, and latest addition to the Faculty. He is a thorough student, and a good fellow; a baseball fan, and a lover of music. Paul is a loyal New Englander. JOHN DUNCAN MACFARLANE, C. E., Grandin, North Dakota Our John D. is as rich in good natur? as Coal Oil John D. is in simoleins . He shone as toastmaster at our last annual banquet and is again on the job as Class Poet and Editor. John is forever quoting poetry. People who know say there is a reason. He was a member of the Civil Engineering Society. (Copyrighted by Dillon Schnebly.) DEWITT EARLE WADDLE, C. E., Taylorville, Illinois A quiet and very unpretentious young gentleman who has won the respect of his class. He is an able student in all things; but his most noted achievement is in astronomy. Neither clouds nor rain prevent him from seeing " Venus " whenever he feels inclined to gaze upon her. 61 ' S|||iEEEtolIglBag BENJ. H. CROSLAND, C. E., Rochester, New York Member of Civil Engineering Society, Member of Western Society of Civil Engi- neers, Assistant Baseball Manager, Business Manager of Engineering Quarterly. With apologies to Riley: " Cross was ' Warrened ' against the woman, ' Nell ' was ' Warrened ' against the man, And if that won ' t make a wedding; Why, there ' s nothing else that can. " JOHN ALEXANDER MACDONALD, C. E., Putnam, Connecticut Member of Civil Engineering Society, member of baseball team 1913, member of Temple Society. Some people feel that John has besn deluded, but be that as it may he has no time to feel blue because hs is never without an engagement. " Mac " is another of our " good roads " men. FRED KELLAM, B. C. E., Arcadia, Indiana Member of Civil Engineering Society. Kellam is one of our brightest students. He is liked by everyone in the class, and we know a great future is in store for him. His wonderful appetite for novels is only exceeded by his extreme fond- ness ( ?) for girls. Fritz is surely some ladies ' man. Never mind, Fritz, you have our sympathy. EDWARD GUSTAF LARSON, C. E., New London, C onnecticut Fair product of Sweden. Trackman, baseball, football, general all-around man- ager. Manager-in-chief of Engineering Quartsrly. Member of the Civil Engi- neering Society. " Lars " has helped the spirit of the class to develop in big bounds and we wonder what 1915 will do without him. He is noted for his humor and is a great favorite of the girls. RALPH M. PALMER, C. E., Osterdock, Iowa A member of the Civil Engineering Society. He is also a member of the Bachelors ' Club. But there is a reason. Ralph is patiently awaiting the day when he can return to Minneapolis. That ' s the reason. We have not a more careful student in our class and none who deserve more success. CLAYTON D. McQUISTON, C. E., Valparaiso, Indiana President of Civil Engineering Society, Advertising Manager of Engineering Quar- terly. " Mac " has a habit of being out of town on Sundays. Just why — no one but " Cross " ever knows. Clayton is a natural mixer who cannot help but succeed. GEORGE WALTERHOUSE, B. C. E., South Bend, Indiana " Old George " came h3re with " Old Frank, " whenever that was. An all around athlete; baseball, track, football. Member of Civil Engineering Society. A man any college would be proud to claim. A good student and hard worker. George was the managsr of the Civil Engineering Co-ed Department. FREDRICK B. BENSON, C. E., Grand Rapids, Michigan Member of Civil Engineering Society. " Cal " or Calculus Benson is the class authority on piers and pile-driving. Like the rest of the class he is a model young man who studies hard and stays in at night. 62 EARNEST AUGUSTUS TUCKER, B. C. E., Lynn, Massachusetts President of the Civil Engineering Society. Editor in Chief of the Civil Engi- neering Quarterly. Member of the Faculty. Assis tant author of " Plain Survey- ing Field Manual. " Tucker leaves us to go into the contracting business. We cannot think of him as being anything but successful. EUGENE GELLONA PIOVERA, C. E., Santiago, Chile Member of Civil Engineering Society. Our only representative from the southern world. Gellona is one of our very best students. He is also a great lover of music; an expert in bridge-design, and one of our most clever mathematicians. We can see no reason why some day he will not be the President of Chile. FRED C. HARMS, B. C. E., Grafton, Wisconsin Member of Civil Engineering Society. A quiet, hard-working young man, whose two aims in life are to overpower Campbell ' s Calculus and to prevent the fair sex from planting kisses on his rosy cheeks. His friends may well be proud of him for his many sterling qualities, and we predict for him a life of many works well done. FRANK J. SKALANDZIUM, C. E., Waterbury, Connecticut A member of the Civil Engineering Society. This gentleman ' s greatest trouble is his name. But with all that he is a good fellow. For the benefit of those who come to Valpo in the future he has left a thesis on the construction of a new grandstand. STANLEY E. STODDARD, B. C. E., Shortsville, New York As important as the stats he represents. " Stodd " came from Shortsville, New York, in 1912. Baseball manager, member of Civil Engineering Society, member of Temple Society. He is the grand old man of V. U. baseball, the boy that put the " base " in baseball. Besides a ball player, Stoddard is a student of rare ability. FRANKLIN T. RICHARDSON, B. C. E., Frankfort, Kentucky Member of Civil Engineering Society. " Rich " is a native of the blue grass state. He is a jolly good fellow and enjoys a good joke. If you want an opinion on white cats, ask " Rich " — he loves ' em. Incidentally, he is quite a connoisseui of antique furniture. WILLIAM WINFIELD CLARK, C. E., New York City, New York Member of Civil Engineering Society, Assistant City Engineer. This young con- sulting Engineer hails " back East. " H was an expert in all his work, from building sewers to running a gas engine. Clark goes back to New York to enter the field of politics. AUGUSTIN W. MALINOVSKY, C. E., Kovel Volenscoi, Gubermy, Russia Member of Civil Engineering Society. A big-hearted, hard-working and con- scientious student. He came all the way from Russia to join us. His work will, perhaps, be structural design and we predict for him the maximum success. 35-EEHH-r, gBBBBsafli E. P. PIPER, B. C. E., Lynn, Massachusetts Piper was one of the organizers of the Efficiency Department at the Lassig Plant of the American Bridge Company. He has also proven his efficiency with a certain Montana " Company " and we understand it is a life job. LEO AYAN, B. C. E., Adana, Turkey, Asia Minor Here is another European whom we are proud to claim. Ayan speaks five languages, but says he is a Frenchman. He works hard and is " here " at every roll-call. LELAND SANPORD INSCHO, C. E., Binghamton, New York Another New Yorker who has been with us constantly for two years. He has been Treasurer and Secretary of the Civil Engineering Society, also Assistant Exchange Editor of the Engineering Quarterly. Inscho loves the girls, but claims there are none like the one back in New York. This is his only fault, and we predict a great future for him in the Engineering profession. IVAN D. KARAIVANOFF, B. C. E., Bolbogde, Bulgaria Another country heard from. Ivan is a friend of everyone, and one of our best mathematicians. We have seen him do little else but work. In fact, he is always on the job. HARRY KARL JOHNSTON, C. E., Lyndonville, Vermont A member of the Civil Engineering Society. He has a pleasant word for every- one he meets. Johnston rooms on the outskirts of town and specializes in heat- ing and ventilating. He never makes a fuss and always has his lessons. ARTHUR W. NELSON, B C. E., Alvwood, Minnesota Member of Civil Engineering Society. This blue eyed youth from Minnesota ranks high in the list of our bright students. Nelson has a fondness for music, his favorite song being, " The Wearing of the Green. " He spends his spare hours lassoing bugs and tutoring " His " zoology student. VICTOR H. BELL, C. E., San Diego, California Member of Civil Engineering Society and Western Society of Civil Engineers. Victor hails from California and is a booster of everything from the West. He is the latest thing in fashion, also an expert on diamonds and the precious metals. JACOB F. PLACHTA, B. C. E., Sietesz, Galicya, Austria Member of C. E. Society. A quiet little fellow who always had his work in order. He is known by what he does and not by what he says. O. P. Kinsey ' s chief electrician. ALBERT DUBOV, B. C. E., Rock Island, Illinois A member of the Civil Engineering Society, and one of the quietest men of the class. He is a first class student from whom we expect great things. JAMES MARNAN, B. C. E., Kansas City, Missouri Member of Civil Engineering Society. James does not have much to say, that is, he is not very talkative about the house; but like the ships that pass in the night, he is missed Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings. Oh, you South Lembke! He goes there to study Graphic Statics. 64 WILLIAM J. KRULL, C. E., Crown Point, Indiana A native of Valparaiso; B. C. E., 1913; President of Civil Engineering Society; Subscription and Exchange Manager of Engineering Quarterly. " Bill ' is a good fellow and a good student He will perhaps give most of his time to the improve- ment of the state highways. At present he is working on the plans for a con- crete bungalow. CARMEN A. LORENZO, B. C. E., Niagara Falls, Canada Member of the Civil Engineering Society. Yell master 1914. " Laurie " specialized during the spring term in grand stand construction. His favorite loafing place is near some large telephone pole. Lorenzo is also an expert on sewers. WAN BANG WONG, B. C. E., Hok Shan City, Canton, China Member of Civil Engineering Society. Bang isn ' t as dangerous as his name might suggest. He has an inquisitive mind and a faculty of sticking to a thing. He intends to return to China and there follow his profession. Wong has developed quite a " Case " on one of our " Engineeresses. " Take our advice, Wong, and let George do it. CLARENCE HENRY CARTER, C. E„ Cochituate, Massachusetts President of Civil Engineering Society, Editor in Chief of the Engineering Quar- terly, President of Temple Society, A. F. A. M. The only proud father in our class. His own joke on himself: — " Every day some one knocks poor Boston on the bean. " He is a hard and consistent worker. BRUNO BUNGSCHE, C. E., Courland Province, Russia Member of Civil Engineering Society. B. C. E., 1913. One of our Russian friends. Bruno ' s smile is contagious. His pleasant manners and ways have won him a high place in the hearts of his friends. FRED LAMOTTE, C. E., Ste. Marie, Illinois Member of Civil Engineering Society. Fred is one of those hard working fellows who is never without a job. We expect to see him city engineer of Gary within a very few years. ISAAC BRICHKE, B. C. E., Volensky Gubermy, Russia Brichke is the man who never went to class without his lesson and was seldom absent. He is our " calculus shark. " Some day he expects to go back to Russia and get more recruits for Valpo. 65 ■5EEEfl r ngiBa2aiB PRESIDENT ' S ADDRESS. .1. W. SCHNEBLY. Ill IS has been called an age of specialists and without doubt the title is deserved. The division of labor is being carried to a greater extent each succeeding year. This is a natural result of the great inventions and consequent commercial development begun during the latter part of the past century. With the aid of machinery man accomplishes far more than with the simple hand tools of former times. The percentage of city population is gradually rising. The number of persons employed in the manufac- turing and commercial activities of the nations is increasing far more rapidly than population. The individual production of each person so emploved has also increased manyfold. The world is to be congrat- ulated on account of this, for it means that the people are enjoying many comforts that former generations did not have. Indeed, one needs but look about him to see the so-called poor people enjoying conveniences of which, a century ago, the very rich had never dreamed. The impressive thing about this new social condition is the fact that no one makes many of the things that he enjoys. It would not be possible for him to do so. He must do one thing well, and for the others depend upon those who like himself do one thing and do that well. The inevitable consequence has been the specialist. The accepted definition of the word, specialist, will allow the name to be applied to all skilled laborers, doctors, lawyers, and engineers. Thus we have a vast army of specialists. There has been abroad in the land an opinion that the specialist is a very highly paid individual. This is true only as it is true of any other thing that is of service in the social life of the country. The price of any com- modity is regulated by the demand for it and the available supply with which to meet the demand. The knowledge of technical things is not limited to any class or condition of persons except that the person obtaining such information or skill must he determined to succeed and must have within him the capability of performing the task he has undertaken. Engineering as a technical profession is open to all who have a desire to grapple with the industrial problems of the day by applying to them all that science and mathematics can give. The necessary training is within the reach of all who have sufficient determination to insure success. Engineering work is pleasant. It gives one the feeling of doing something tangible. It will lead to positions of responsibility and trust. It will pay well to those who reach the better places. Although the road to these good positions is a long and arduous one there are many who start in the race. It necessarily follows that the remuneration is small for the first part of this contest and becomes large only when many have been eliminated. Those who succeed are often not the equals in a technical sense of some who fall by the way. Many a brilliant mathematical mind is in the service of one who was less talented as a student of books. The fact is that technical knowledge alone is not sufficient for the high- est success and he who would reap the largest rewards must have more than any technical school or experience can give him. What then is this additional thing that insures the larger place in the world ? The engineer is usually employed by the business man to do some special kind of work and is considered only as a special kind of laborer. If he wishes to rise above this condition he must know more than " Things. " He must know humanity, its motives, its desires, its ideals. He must know the relation between each part of the social structure of the coun- try and every other part. He must see a relationship between the hopes, ambitions, and passions of men, and the great commercial development of the time. He must possess a personality that will attract others to him. If he can do these things he will attain success. Great leaders of men are men of strong minds. They have an inti- mate knowledge of the wants of mankind and the ability to satisfy these wants. They have a vision of greater things and are the prophets of the commercial development of the nation. They have the courage of their convictions and are willing to risk their fortunes and reputations in support of their judgment. But, unfortunately, these Czars of com- merce are no more prone to be unselfish than are the Czars in political life. There have been too many exam) ties of men who were great only because they were dishonest. Who were animated by the sipirit of Com- modore Vanderbilt when he said " The public be damned. " To them the public is only a collection of pawns to be used for the benefit of the kings and queens of business. The people are becoming painfully con- scious of the fact that they have been wronged and there is the possibil- ity of their doing just as much wrong through ill-considered action as the captains of industry have done through deliberately planned rascal- ity. A commercial despotism is no more to be tolerated than a political despotism. The people will dethrone the emperors of business just as, in the past, they overthrew the kings of nations. Business will always be big. That can not be changed for it has too many good points to be cast aside because of the imperfections now present. But big business must recognize the sovereignty of the people for its support must come from the necessities and desires of the people which can be satisfied by its products. The people will demand that they know the secrets of the business of the country just as they have demanded in the past that they know the affairs of state. Business will some day be as open to public inspection as are the governmental affairs of the present day. The engineer must take his place in the public service. He must become a part of the forces of the nation. He must engage in its com- merce, its manufacturing, its transportation problems. He must be the guiding mind in the great construction work of the time. When em- ployed by the state his duty is clear for he is the servant of the people. But when employed by a business corporation he is working in a differ- ent capacity. He must make a choice between serving his employer or the people. This difficulty will disappear when he remembers that no real devotion to the best interests of an honest employer will ever demand that he be unfaithful to the public interest. If he is a man of strong character and serves his employer and the people well, he will eventually become a leader among men. Gentlemen of the engineer class, you are about to go out to com- pete with others for a place in the business of the world. You have the usual training of the young man in your chosen profession. You have an equal chance with any other young man who is doing his first work. You will find life to be a constant struggle of your higher against your lower impulses; the better people of a community against the worse; the great forces of truth seeking to build up humanity against the forces of evil which simply traffic in human emotions and passions. Sooner or later you must take one side or the other in this conflict. When the moment of choice is with you remember the words of Bryant: " So live that when thy summons comes to join The innumerable caravan which moves 68 To that mysterious realm where each shall take His chamber in the silent halls of death. Thou go not, like the quarry slave at night, Scourged to his dungeon, but sustained and soothed By an unfaltering trust approach thy grave, Like one that wraps the draperies of his couch About him and lies down to pleasant dreams. " GU CLASS HISTORY. BENJ. H. CROSLAND. N THE year of our Lord Nineteen Hundred Eleven, there arrived in the Vale of Paradise a motley collection of pilgrims whose avowed intentions were to become great Civil Engi- neers. One by one these Pilgrims wandered into Dean Bogarte ' s office, and having confided their cherished inten- tions to that most worthy Professor, and each and every one having duly signed the inevitable cards, the Valparaiso University Civil Engineer- ing Class of Nineteen Hundred and Fourteen sprang into being. The beginning of the class of Fourteen however, was very sad inasmuch as the first great public duty that it was called upon to per- form, was to escort the deceased body of its beloved Dean to his final resting place. " Every cloud has a silver lining " however, which last was most beautifully illustrated; in that, with the loss of Dean Bogarte came the gain of Dean Yoeman. From this time until the spring of Ninteen Twelve, the Class " Ship " sailed serenely on without any event of note. With the opening of Spring however, came Surveying: which caused " Old Fourteen " to heave a great sigh of joy, for at last it was made up of full fledged Engineers. Spring gave way to summer, and the class sweltered and perspired its way manfully through recitations and lectures (with perhaps just a little Sagerology on the side) to the close of its first year. The Class began its second year with the usual excitement and bustle, but soon settled down to hard work witb which it went steadily on until a few weeks before Thanksgiving, when it was jarred out of its normal calm by a challenge to a game of football from the Senior Class. Whereupon it bestirred itself and with its usual and customary vigor proceeded to whip together such an aggregation from the raw material at hand, that on that memorable Thanksgiving day of the year of Nineteen Hundred and Twelve, those selfsame haughty seniors went down to defeat under the overwhelming odds of 23 to 00. After lliis the Class went on its way rejoicing, finishing its railroad to Frank- fort, and taking up the delightful stubject of Graphic Statics, stopping off, in January, just long enough to have one happy gathering and feast 70 at its annual banquet and thence on through the baseball season, carry- ing home to its Hall of Fame its second successive baseball pennant, and winding up the Spring term by winning the first track meet old Valpo ever held. With the Summer came once more Sagerology, Ceme- tery Road and sweltering class rooms, to say nothing of Bacteriology, but even as all good things have an ending, so in the due coarse of time the second year of the Class of Fourteen came to its close. In the Fall of Nineteen Hundred and Thirteen, shortly after the old College Bell had once more called the class together, a meeting was held. At which time sundry wise things were said and done (the word wise is used advisedly in this instance for it must be remembered that we are now referring to a Senior class). Among the rest an election was held by which several deserving members were elected to office. The results of this were as follows: J. W. Selmebly, president; John A. MacDonald, vice president; Geo. A. Parker, secretary; Warren K. Dillon, treasurer; Earle Waddle, manager; John MacFarlane, poet and editor; A. J. Winningham, testator; Paul Flux, prophet; John Mac- Donald, orator; and B. H. Crosland, historian. After having conferred all these honors, the Class relapsed into its usual calm and went serene- ly and haughtily on its way (as befitted a Senior class) stepping aside in January to attend the annual Engineers banquet held in Altruria hall, and then continuing on its way until Spring and Baseball made it well nigh impossible to maintain its haughty mien, when it unbent a trifle to root for its team, and even went so far as to get out with pick and shovel and work on the construction of a new quarter mile cinder track and to put in a sewer for the new club house. These things having been done at the expense of some dignity, numerous blisters, and aching backs, it proceeded to win the interclass track meet (as usual). Taken up with this unusual work, Summer was soon upon the class and before it was aware that three years had flown, it was in the midst of class day exercises and commencement. In conclusion, it might be well to state that the Engineering Class of Fourteen was characterized throughout its years in Valparaiso for its constancy, intelligence, and untiring devotion and loyalty to its College and University, and that at all times it was, at heart, in sympathy with its faculty and its Dean. May the history of each and every one of its individual members be as bright as its own — the Engineering Class of Nineteen Hundred and Fourteen. 71 TO THE GRADUATING CLASS IN CIVIL ENGINEERING VALPARAISO UNIVERSITY, 1914.

FTER having completed my education as Civil Engineer, my attention was drawn to a promising engineering project in I the Philippine Islands. I embarked on a small but well equipped steamship and started to the Philippines. After enjoying perfect weather for about a week we were suddenly confronted with a raging storm which even the strongest vessels weather with difficulty. The engines were disabled almost as soon as the storm struck us and we all knew that it was only a question of a few hours that the ship could keep afloat. With these existing conditions confronting us one of my companions and I constructed a small raft to which we tied ourselves. After being- tossed about for several days, we were thrown upon the shores of an isolated island, inhabited only by a few natives. We at once made friends with them, but upon inquiry, we were informed that ships rarely passed the island. There was nothing to do but to settle down and surrender ourselves to fate and so for twenty years we lived here. During this time we had not seen a sliip; until one day, just such a storm came up as the one that had wrecked our vessel. After the storm subsided, to our surprise we saw a great ocean liner just a short distance from the shore, where it had been driven by the storm. We gave a dis- tress signal, and a boat was at once lowered and sent to us. The liner was soon freed by the high tide and we sailed for San Francisco, where we landed August fifteenth, nineteen hundred thirty-six. My first thought was to visit some of my old V. U. classmates in that part of the country. I boarded a train for San Diego and upon arriving here, noticed a large, conspicuous sign, advertising house — lots and residences for sale by Victor H. Bell. I visited Victor and learned that he was trying to increase the population of San Diego to one mil- lion inhabitants by selling attractive real estate. Bell informed me that George A. Parker was building a new aque- duct for the water supply of Salt Lake City. I then remembered and mentioned a large aqueduct which was built for New York City, but Bel! 74 laughed and said that there were many larger ones built since that time, and that the one at Salt Lake City was now the largest. I then left San Diego and went to Los Angeles where I found John D. MaeFarlane, whom I was pleased to learn was chief engineer of that city. John D. was also chief of a John D. Jr. and a John T. and John H. I spent a few pleasant days inspecting the wonderful improvements which John had made on the antiquated water supply of that city. I left Los Angeles and traveled east to Kansas City where I found two of our old pals, Crosland and McQuiston. " Cross " and " Mack " represented the Universal Construction Co., and were having great success in reinforced concrete building. They told me about the new steel bridge at St. Louis designed and built by the Waddle-Winningham Bridge and Steel Corporation, which I then visited. From St. Louis I went to Chicago, where I was sure to find a few of our 1914 boys. Upon inquiry I learned that Ralph M. Palmer was at the head of the Board of Building Commissioners. Palmer took me to a new eighty-six story building which was being erected by the Eureka Construction Co., represented by I. D. Karaivanoff and A. Malinovsky, with Frank Skalandzium and Bruno Bungshe, engineers in charge. I a ' so learned that Fredrick Benson and Fred Harms were building the new docks for the Cunard Line Steamship Co., for the ships that run between Liverpool ami Chicago via the Niagara Canal. My next move was to the Pennsylvania Railroad Station. I was surprised to see the new magnificent structure that had taken the place of the old Union Depot. Here 1 boarded a train for dear old Valparaiso. In Valpo — I also beheld a new station and noted that it was designed by the V. U. Civil Engineering Dept. I was taken to the Hill on the Col- lege Ave. electric car line, and behold, when I arrived, that T was as much surprised to see the landscape as when I first arrived in Valpo, over twenty-five years ago. I asked the car conductor to let me off at the Engineering building and he asked me, " Which one, Civil, Mechanical, or Electrical? " After telling him the Civil, I found myself in front of a six-story white granite building which bore the name " Civil Engi- neering Building. " I noticed a large yellow automobile in front of the door which reminded me of Berner, but I knew the long white bearded gentleman could not be he, so I approached the old gentleman and asked for Prof. Yeoman. " That is 1, " was his answer and I was glad to again see our old " prof. " and meet his three sons who were with t: him. The " prof. " then took me through the Civil Engineering build- ing and showed me it s fine big lecture, and drawing rooms and its new laboratories. On the way through, we stopped to listen to a class in Theory of Structures, after which the class dismissed, I was glad to see again Prof. Edw. G. Larson. ' ' Lars ' ' had followed the example of many other great men by working up from the office boy to the manager. He, how- ever, informed me that he was soon to be married and intended to retire from work and return to Sweden to spend his remaining days. I also learned from Larson, who was the President of the Alumni Association, how Dame Fortune had guarded the paths of many of our other classmates. Fred Kellam had located in the southern part of Indiana and had established what was known as the Kellam Laborator- ies, where he studied and worked out many ingenious engineering and scientific problems, including the telescoping bridge, the rain-absorbing roof, and the flexible railroad car. Arthur W. Nelson was employed at a large salary by the Minneapolis and St. Paul Rapid Transit Co., as consulting engineer and architect. William J. Krull, L. S. Inscho, and F. T. Richardson, representing The Triangle Engineering Co., had just completed one of the most important tasks in American Engineering, that of checking the Mississippi Valley spring floods. This was made possible by building huge reservoirs and dams in the valleys. James Marman, head of the State Engineering Board of Texas, was now build- ing a great chain of good roads in that state, the first known in the sec- tion. Some of our fellow students had answered the call to foreign lands. Leo Ayan from the latest reports was building a large irrigation canal in Turkey. Eugene Gellona Piovera was a chief engineer in the Chilian army. W. B. Wong was now dean of the Engineering college of Hong Kong. We next visited the electrical department and there I met Dean J. F. Plachta, who was " shooting " the E. M. F ' s., Ohms and AVatts into the heads of a class of young " would-be " electricians. We visited the large gymnasium where our peerless athlete, George Walterhouse, was coaching the basket-ball team. George had developed a fast team which had not met defeat during the entire season. We also watched the V. U. crew working the rowing machines. I was informed that still another of our boys was in Valpo and I was taken to the new Mathe- 76 matics Hall, where I listened to Prof. H. K. .Johnston teaching differen- tial equations. After spending a few pleasant days in Valparaiso, visiting the reconstructed Sager ' s Lake Pavillion and all the other wonderful attrac- tions that Valparaiso has, I started East. I arrived in Buffalo via the fast " Nickel Plate " Road just five hours after leaving Valparaiso. Niagara Falls next attracted my attention and I decided to make a short trip to the Falls. Here 1 met Carmen Lorenzo who showed me the plans he had made for the large sewer system for that city. T changed trains for Shortsville, N. Y., where my old roommate, S. E. Stoddard, lived. As I entered the car I met another former class- mate. Warren K. Dillon. 1 hardly recognized Dillon for he now weighed but 210 pounds instead of . " !)4 as in our college days, lie also was enroute to see Stoddard and sell him some of the new water-proof cement which he had placed on the market. Dillon, I learned, was traveling over the entire country, making people believe that his new cement was " the goods. " We arrived in Shortsville within a short time and met at the station, the city engineer, Stoddard. Shortsville, as we soon learned, was called the model American city and had received this name only through the untiring work of its engineer. Stoddard in his extra time was coaching the pitchers of the S. H. S. hall team. I left Shortsville and journeyed on to New York City where I also expected to meet several old Valpo friends. 1 learned that the city sanitary engineer was none other than Wm. W. Clark, who had, since his election, performed all the duties claimed by the " Gold Dust Twins. " Albert Dubov also had located in this great city and was now working on the Jersey City Bridge, over the Hudson to that city. J. W. Schnebly was the next acquaintance to please my vision. " .I. W. " informed me, among many other things, that he was about to retire from the presi- dency of the Pennsylvania Hail road Co. On my way to Boston, 1 stopped at Hartford, Conn., where I met John A. MacDonald, state electrician. " Mack " had reconstructed the electric, telephone and telegraph lines throughout the state and had designed a tunnel conduit system, which replaced the wooden poles of the olden days. 77 When I arrived in Boston, I at once inquired for C. H. Carter. I knew he must be there, for Carter learned a lesson by leaving Boston to go to Valparaiso and I knew he would never leave Boston again. Sure enough, he was easy to find for he was the man who consolidated all the New England railroads under one management and since that time the New Haven has never had a wreck. Carter had worked through many deals which Mellen would have never thought of. Carter informed me of the new Boston-Lynn subway designed and built by E. A. Tucker and E. P. Piper. I had the pleasure of riding in this great subway to Lynn, and from there I returned to my home in Tucker ' s new aeroplane. I was indeed, happy to again be at home, nevertheless my heart rejoiced to think how the monotony of the world has been changed and brightened by the wonderful efforts of our 1914 Engineers. 78 : . : : : ; :♦:• ' - CLASS ORATION. THE ENGINEER AND HIS PROFESSION. JOHN A. M AC DONALD. T IS frequently stated and often earnestly contended that Engineering is the youngest of all the professions. In some respects this is true, although it is not true as a fundamental statement. The modern science of engineering is of compara- tively recent date, for it is scarcely more than a century since the operations of the engineer began to be based upon sound philosophical principles, and it is even less than that since the calling of the engineer assumed full-fledged standing among modern profes- sions. As a matter of fact, during the past eighty or ninety years the engineering profession has made such rapid advances and has extended so broadly, that the corresponding educational demands for those about to enter it have not, to this day, been fully met. The study of engineering opens to those who pursue it the widest fields of industry and enterprise known to the modern world, and that study will never attain its full productiveness until it is so put before the young men of the present time as to make clear the prominent features of its usefulness. The qualifications demanded of engineers in all the extended fields of engineering work are vastly more complicated than in the early days of those engineers who have not yet reached even middle life. It is no longer sufficient that an engineer should possess just that amount of technical knowledge which will enable him to discharge the duties of any position which he may hold, purely as an engineer. He has or might become not only an expert technical man, but also the controlling personality in many wide fields of professional work in which it is not only his duty to direct purely professional operations, bu1 to conserve varied interests depending upon those operations in such a manner as to secure the efficiency and success of an organization. In the discharge of these general or administrative duties, he loses in no sense his pro- fessional character, but he rather preserves it in a higher capacity and adds to it certain broad qualifications which can be best developed through his libera] education. It has become therefore, almost or quite imperative that his educational training purely as an engineer should he preceded by the prior 1 raining of a college education. Most people have no conception of what the Engineering profession really is. Some do not even distinguish between a Civil Engineer and a Surveyor. While a Civil Engineer must be a Surveyor, it does not necessarily follow that a Surveyor is a Civil Engineer. The old definition of an engineer was, — " A man who knew a great deal about something and something about everything, " but the most widely accepted definition of engineering is that of Tredgold made nearly a century ago, which is: " The art of directing the great sources of power in nature for the use and convenience of man. ' ' Another defi- nition might be, " Modern engineering is a combination of science and art by which all strictly material productions that involve construction, either directly or indirectly, and which are serviceable to mankind, are evolved, designed and materialized. " A complete detailed statement of what constitutes the entire field of Engineering would be an almost endless task, but it would certainly convince anyone concerning the vastness, grandeur, and importance of the engineering profession. Can its members be blamed for claiming that it is by far the most important of the learned professions, and that it is also the most scientific of them all; that the wonderful progress of mankind during the last half century or more is due essentially to the energy and ability of Engineers? Not only must the Engineer be a technical man, but he must be a cultivated man; he must have a knowledge of the business, social and political world. An engineer, of all men, requires such knowledge of the technique of the language that he can use it with accuracy and facility at all times. The bad construction of a sentence, even the erron- eous use of a word or the misapplication of a comma, may result in costly litigation and heavy loss. The engineer must be energetic. His work is to get things done. He receives his pay and holds his position because men with means want to invest it with the idea of prompt returns. There certainly is no place in the engineering world for the lazy man. It is not how long it will take, but how quickly can it be done and how well, — not how little can be accomplished today but how much, — not half way service but the very best that is in one. 80 HggaSEHB pGaEBgaBB The engineer must be a man of broad view. He lias large things to do in every phase of his work, large undertakings to be carried out, large investments of capital to be properly expended; and no small man can do these large things well. This necessitates that he have a broad culture, one that will help him in these lines and to make him fit to do what he must do in life if he is to succeed. The Engineer must keep up with the times; he can not he lazy mentally; he must keep fully informed as to what is being done in a general way along engineering lines. This he must do by keeping his eyes open and always being quick and ready to adopt methods which are better than his own. The engineer who devises and executes public undertakings of magnitude must always be prepared for the unexpected and therefore must be resourceful. It is not unusual for an engineer to encounter difficulties not anticipated. These must be surmounted or failure is inevitable. He is likewise a member of Society, from which he gets much and to which he owes much. Of all the pure sciences, there is none so intimately connected with Engineering as Mathematics. It is not as most laymen suppose, the whole essence of engineering, but it is the Engineer ' s principal working tool. Tn view of the enormously important part which the engineer plays in the life of today, it is incumbent upon him, more than upon most other men, to take a vital interest in the work of government, and to lend his trained ability and judgment to its perfection. I do not mean, of course, that the engineer should do routine professional work for the government without compensation, but that in the discussion of public improvements and the administration of governmental departments he should take an active public stand to influence and guide the non-expert part of the population. There are also many problems in connection with the Municipal, State, and National Governments, that will require solving in the years to come, and no class of men are more able to cast their influence in the right direction in the solution of these than the engineers. The profession of the engineer demands a creative imagination sensitized to the sober, clear sight which sees things as they are, and from which springs an appreciation of art. literature and music, which rivals that produced in no other manner. si aajaEraHS gBiBaeai The engineer in charge of construction stands in a peculiar relation to both his employers and the contractors; and the true relation is not generally recognized. It is that of arbitrator, and not that of oppressor. No one who employs an engineer has a right to think that he purchases that engineer ' s conscience when he pays him his salary. It is as much an engineer ' s business to look out carefully for the rights of the con- tractor as it is to se e that his employers receive the full value of what they | ay for, and all work is properly done. The engineer must be an accurate man; he must know his data and his formulae; and his calculations must be exact. He is needed in politics to combat its dishonesty and slovenliness of thought and method. The engineer must be honest with himself, a kind of honesty all too rare. These qualities fit him rarely for the consideration of problems of national import which are not usually considered as engineering. A general knowledge of law in its relations to contracts, organiza- tion of companies, rights of corporations, and many other important matters connected directly or indirectly with engineering work is essen- tial to the highest professional success. It is incumbent on Engineers to become versatile men with a keen sense of appreciation. If we cheapen ourselves by avoiding or shunning these subjects which edu- cate us as men, because we cannot see that they aid us as bread winners, our profession is but little more than a trade. In order therefore, that the technical man who in material things knows what to do and how to do it, may be able to get the thing done and to direct the doing of it, he must be an engineer of men and of capital as well as of the materia 1 s and forces of nature. In other words, he must cultivate human interests, human learning, human associations; and avail himself of every opportunity to further these personal and business relations. A merchant may advertise his wares, a manufacturer his product, but reasonable modesty and his code of ethics prevents an Engineer from advertising his skill. If he does not become known by his work or his writing, he remains in comparative obscurity. The engineer has ever had a due appreciation of all the sciences; imagination to see practical possibilities for the results of their findings, and the common-sense power of applying these to his own use. In short, the aim of pure science is discovering, but the purpose of engineering is usefulness. Inaccuracy is perhaps, the greatest sin next to dishonesty, of which the engineer is capable. Its results are waste of money, danger, acci- 82 dent, and frequently loss of life. Falling bridges, broken dams, col- lapsed buildings, are likely to follow the misplacing of a decimal point or the omission of some essential in computation. The doctor may bury the results of his experiments under ground and out of sight. The lawyer may hang or imprison his. The The ' n gian may hide his errors in the dark absurdity of dusty shelves, Imt the mistakes of the engineer are quick to find him out and to proclaim his incompetency. He is the one professional man who is obliged to be right. His mistakes are published to all the world, — from the very housetops. There is no escape and no evasion whatsoever. The Pub- lic will search out, bring to light and hold up to criticism every faulty performance. Talk avails nothing; here nothing will serve but the exact truth. Every falling bridge, crumbling tower, sliding wall, brok- en curb, bursting dam, and torn embankment, are but so many illustra- tions of this fact. Nature ' s forces are good servants but poor masters. The practice of such a profession tends to make honest men. Honest, not merely morally, for that is comparatively common — but mentally honest, a very rare result indeed. In closing I want to emphasize the high place and the high service of our profession of Engineering. It is full of the splendor of brilliant achievement. It is modern and pulsing with the vigor of youth, yet is as old as the Pyramids. It is vibrating with this new life, yet it deals with laws ages old when this earth was born. It is a profession of help, of service, of betterment. It builds, and an old earth becomes more habitable. It gives ways of travel to the poor that the rich of old did not dream of. It floods the night hours with light. It takes the brutal part away from human labor. It is creative. The Engineer is co-partner with the gods and the master of gravitation.

So aacgggHEgiii BBBaasBifi: CLASS WILL. A. J. WINN1NGHAM. X()W ALL MEN BY THESE PRESENTS:— That we, the 1914 Civil Engineering Class of Valparaiso University, heing of sound mind and good memory, do hereby name as our heirs and assigns, the Juniors of the above-named class and University: WHEREAS, WE, the Seniors, knowing of the dense ignorance and extreme youth of these Juniors, have viewed their conduct with toler- ation. Further, knowing that they, with their benighted minds have yearned to imitate us, we hope to encourage their youthful efforts by bequeathing to them certain privileges and advice that they may also successfully climb the rugged sides of the Hill of Knowledge. After we, the august Seniors, have departed from this world of spuds to the realms of higher endeavor where our services will be appreciated and sought after with the amazing and stupendous salaries of sixty dollars per month or less, let no one deny to these little ones, the Juniors, the rights of being dignified and respected in Valparaiso University. We bequeath to them our sterling worth and shining example. We even bequeath to them, insignificant as they are, the respect of the faculty and a perfect right to increase the length of the Civil Engineer- ing course to three years and three terms. We further personally assign to them the hereafter mentioned essays, articles, definitions, ponies, and advice, to-wit: Our President, Joseph W. Schnebly, leaves a record of " How To Avoid the Displeasures of Making a Sanitary Survey of the City of Schools and Churches. " Benjamin H. Crosland and Clayton 1). McQuiston leave a striking example of brotherly love and its childish effect upon two otherwise master minds. William W. Clark, assistant City Engineer, wills to all tired Juniors the following advice — " Never attend class until strenuous ineffectual efforts have been made to find other ways in which to while away your time. " 86 TMsEHHH-Tm HSfflggHh iC Dewitt E. Waddle and Archie J. Winningham bequeath two excep- tionally valuable " draft-horses " to those who choose to delve into the mysteries of Differential Equations. Edward G. Larson wills an interesting ' pamphlet entitled, " Tree Tousand Tings De Office Boy Must Learn. " Paul A. E. Flux leaves this statement — " It is good policy, even at the expense of a few moments of pleasure, to gaze at the Calculus book each day; at least long enough to ascertain the number of problems assigned. It is valuable, " he says, " in estimating the number of prob- lems you have solved. " Eugene Gellona Piovera, Augustin W. Malinovsky, and Bruno Bungshe, masters of the English language, leave, as a result of wide research and persistent study, a massive work in three volumes entitled, " How to Smile in English. " The two John Macs, John 1). MacFarlane and John A. McDonald, orators and ladies men from the word " go, " bequeath to all love sick Juniors, a topographical map which enables one not only to locate Sager ' s Lake, but also to find spots so secluded and well protected with foliage that the owls screech by day and night. Leland S. Inscho leaves the following definition for " indicated horse-power — " The indicated horse-power is the horse-power indicated by the indicator. " Also he leaves an essay on " What May Be Done With a Dime. " Clarence H. Carter leaves a collection of forcible arguments which he has been forced to use from time to time in convincing the class that Boston is superior in every respect to any American city. Victor H. Bell, specialist in precious minerals and metals, leaves in the library, within easy reach of all, that most wonderful article entitled, " How to Distinguish Between Plate Glass and Diamonds. Also Between Brass Door Knobs and Gold Nuggets. " Ralph M. Palmer and William J. Krull leave their addresses so that all Juniors may, by writing to those Dignitaries, receive an immed- iate and conclusive solution to any great and puzzling engineering problem which may at any time confront them. Frederick B. Benson wishes to bequeath several things, but desires that they be kept secret. Any one wishing particulars will please seek a personal interview with him. Just as a clue it might be said that he can tell considerable concerning ways and means of obtaining a credit in Calculus. sT ;: v.- .. ' .■■■■ ' I iiijj, ' J ' Jt. ' JI ' .Jil I x Harry K. Johnston and Prank J. Skalandziun feel that they cannot afford to leave anything. But it is a well known fact, even though it be against their will, that they certainly leave many heart-broken maid- ens to mourn their loss. The class as a whole wills to the Juniors their best wishes and hopes that they may always be as fortunate as at present in having those near who are broad minded enough to tolerate them and to sym- pathize with them in their failures. Witness our hands this Fifteenth day of August, 1914. Senior Civil Engineering Class, Valparaiso Universitv. L S. Witnesses. Kay C. Yoeman. Oliver Perrv Kinsey. 88 EDITORIAL. The few following pages dedicated to the graduates of 1914 of the Educational Department, comprise a few words of commendation for the members of our Class. We as a Class are proud of our Department, and our Departmental head, Dean, George Neet. The personal interest, and kindly suggestion, and personal example he has set before us, cannot help but make us ever hold him reverend in our memories. By diligent and persistent effort he has brought the Department from a small beginning to one of Val- paraiso ' s leading departments, and is this year bestowing upon the deserving for the first time the degree of A. B. in Education, and to those who are not quite so far advanced the usual degree of Pg. B. We trust we may become factors in the pedagogical world, and ever he a credit to our Alma Mater and its Faculty. Editor. ggaEgEgsgr ip CLASS ROLL A. B. DEdiKEE. Baumgartner, John Bennett, H.

Indeed not! when her reputation ' s at stake; Her poetic nature would writhe at the thought, Especially since her " Works of Art " have been sought. But then — I knew it, when all last Fall, She scribbled and scribbled till at Prof. Hoover ' s call, She ' d turn ' round all fussed and rise to her feet, And ask so politely, " Would you please repeat? " Yet how we all love her! Oh! What can it be, That charm of good will, she sweeps over " we? " D. B. R. JOHNSON, D. B. R. Johnson, Ph. G. 1906; A. B. 1914. A high school Superintendent from the mistletoe state. An excellent student, a successful teacher and a thorough gentleman. He served his class faithfully and well, as their manager as he will serve humanity in the future. He has been and will ever be a success. Editor ' s note: (When he reaches the gates of paradise, they will be opened unto him. He will be given a pair of wings and a golden harp upon which he will play throughout eternity.) MRS. PEARL W. JOHNSON, Waynaku, Oklahoma A happy wife, an excellent student and a successful teacher. What more can be desired. She takes with her from V. U. the admiration and respect of students and teachers, also the A. B. degree in education. LLOYD B. EHERENMANN. The best goods always come in small packages, at least in this case. Small as he is he will make one of Indiana ' s biggest school men. He is some wind-jammer too, but if you ever heard him jam some wind into a cornet, you will soon say he is some cornetist. He will return again to the school room next fall at where he formerly taught. If you want to know of his ability read the President ' s address. WILBUR F. SMITH, Valparaiso, Indiana " Isn ' t " he fat? " Everybody says that when they see him, and we all like to hide behind his avordupois when the lessons are hard. He has nearly all the degrees Valpo bestows, and wants to be an M. D. Why? Because he delights in making people suffer. RUDOLPH KOCH, A native of Switzerland, cellent German teacher but slowly melting. " He served his class two terms as president, is an ex- ind an all-round School man. " A frozen old bachelor, 98 JSSa EES WSBff E. FRENCH, Says his picture will speak for itself, comes from Poneto, Indiana, and next year is to be principal of schools at Smithmills, Kentucky. After considerable work at Marion Normal School and finishing his A. B. course here he goes pre- pared to add many more successful years of teaching to the eight he has already had. MAUD WHISENHUNT, Mira, Louisiana Miss Whisenhunt was a member of the Scientific Class of 1913, and receives her degree from the Educational Department this year. She is an earnest student and a possessor of the determination that wins. The confidence of teachers, the admiration of classmates, and the respect of all accompany her return to the Sunny Southland. H. OMER BENNETT, The chief designer of the Educational pennant of which the class is proud. He has related to us many historical facts, both from his reading and experience. His excellent work as a student together with a number of years of teaching experience assures his classmates that he will rise to distinction. He may be corresponded with by addressing 217 E. Washington St., Lebanon, Indiana, in care of his wife. EDWARD H. KOLMER, Waterloo, Illinois He came from a farm in Illinois, and entered Valparaiso University with the idea of work uppermost in his mind. How well he has succeeded is shown by his record. He was a Scientific in 1913, and now is getting his Bachelor ' s degree in Education. MARY GOSS ROMIG, The girl with the raven-black hair from " Sunny Kansas. " Mary Goss is progres- sive, altruistic and a " little hustler. " She previously attended Cottey Boarding School of Nevada, Missouri. And next year will teach History in the large high school at Fredonia, Kansas. RAY R. MERRIL, Rome, Pennsylvania Radiant Ray radiates from Pennsylvania. After winning honors from the Mans- field Normal School he thrust his presence upon us. We were glad to have him too, and we know his dignity will get him " by " in his chosan profession. EDNA GREEN, " She has made a specialty of catching, In her net both bugs and man. Now we hope that she ' ll be happy, Just as happy as she can. " !l!l J. ALVIN LANDERS, Hinze, Mississippi Was born in the Southland and has won for himself a place in the hearts of his Northern associates. Received his Pg. B. in 1913 and will graduates for the A. B. in 1914. He will teach the coming year and then wear his smile through an Eastern University and on through a successful life. BERTON A. HOWLETT. Berton hails from the Empire State. After graduating from high school, he attended the Fredonia State Normal School a year. He received the B. S. degree from Valparaiso last year and choosing as his life with that of pedagogy, he remained this year and will receive as his reward the A. B. in Education. CATHERINE McDONALD, Thetford, Michigan She writes B. O., B. S., Pg. B. and A. B. after her name. She is a thoroughly suc- cessful teacher and a reader of marked ability. As a teacher, she is praised, as a student, she is respected, as a friend, she is loved. She is successful not only in one, but in many lines of work. JOHN BAUMGARTNER, Bunkley, Arkansas Another native of the Buckeye State, and a strong believer in education. From Valpo he has received the B. S. and Pg. B. degrees, and this year the A. B. in the Educational course. The fact that he is making good assures us that he is a hustler. JOHN MICHAEL MARINO. Pt. Washington, L. I., N. Y. Johnnie always meets you with a broad smile, better known as the glad-hand artist of the class. The spirit of an easterner is ever flowing gently thru his system. An active and industrious student, History and Political Science being his favorites. His silver tongue is ever pouring forth the keynote of his life, Butlerism. MRS. SALLIE VAN CAMP, Burch, West Virginia A real teacher, and one who loves the work. The fact that for eleven years she worked in the common schools, and five years in the high schools of W. Va., shows plainly she is interested in the intellectual uplift of the youths of her state. We stole her from the Scientifics and are proud of it. We only wish her more success. HENRIETTA FAY, Valparaiso, Indiana Her Auto-biography; last edition. Former occupation bossing the Fay family. Future occupation teaching (if I can get a place.) Hair variegated. Eyes curly, when I put ' em up on clothes pins over night. 100 MARIE PLUMMER, Huntington, Indiana Attended common and high school in Huntington, one term at Tri-State College, completed Pg. B. course in Valparaiso University. Will teach next year in Hunt- ington. She is known by her Bird Guide and Nature Study glasses. ELIZABETH B. DICKENSON, Cleveland, New York It was in the fall of 1912 that this true daughter of " The Empire " left those wooded streams and azure skies to seek the halls of learning and to don her armor for the " Humane " strife. She has kept both arms and honor bright. Not only has she proven her efficiency as a student but she has made her influence felt. She possesses that happy faculty of seeing the bright side. No matter if the storms do oppose, she is always able to discern the lucky " star " gleaming from behind the threatening cloud and to read the watchword, " Education. " She will return next year to take the Classic. BERNICE ERNSBERGER, Mentone, Indiana A former " Hoosier Schoolmarm " and some marm she was too. She never pun- ished anyone, it is said, for her scholars had lots of respect for her physical as well as mental ability. In fact the community of Mentone didn ' t want to lose her so she remained in school four years after graduating, not as a pupil but as a teacher. She expects to " Go West, " and follow her profession. ALMA C. JOHNSON, Madrid, Iowa A quiet lass from the fertile plains of central Iowa. She expects to remain next year and finish the Scientific Course. " Silence is Golden. " BENJAMIN F. SHAFER, Claremont. Illinois B. S. and Pg. B., 1910. A very successful Indiana High School teacher. A great co-educational student. Mr. Shafer is much interested in law and politics, but insures us he shall continue in his present profession for sometime. PRANCES AGAR, Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan On an Indian Reservation she was born In our far off western land; But in childhood ' s early morn She moved to Gitchie Goornies shining strand. SOLOMAN H. BASSOW, B. S. 1913, V. U., New York, New York " Bassow by name, but Spencer by fame, for all the time Spencer he is a quot- ing. " He is a fine all round student, industrious and faithful to his duties.

His expectation is to teach for a while and then to take a medical course in The John Hopkins University. 101 H3gieEEHH3 1IgIBaaE [DA YOUNG, Princeton, West Virginia Educated in the Concord State Normal School, Athens, W. V., and in the Ohio Wesleyan University. After receiving Pg. B. degree will continue teaching. LULU LAUDENSLAGER, Miss Laudenslager comes to us from Pennsylvania. Prior to entering the Val- paraiso University she studied in I. S. N. S., in Pennsylvania She expects to devote her future efforts to the teaching profession and will be found in the ranks next year at Dolliver, Iowa. ROBERT HESTER, Elarbee, Mississippi A teacher for five years, then he somehow just mozzied up to Valparaiso. He had a smile on when he came and it never left him. He expects to smile a few more degrees out of some University and teach. Smile on, Robert, and luck to you. ALVA McKISSOX. South Bend, Indiana Alva comes from South Bend, St. Josephs, Ind., but is not a native of that county. He was raised, and has taught two years in Marshall County. He was graduated from Plymouth High School. He has high hopes of making his mark in the world but fears that it may be a lead pencil mark written upon water; so he says when questioned concerning his aspirations. T. F. ELLIS, Calhoun, Kentucky Ellis takes great part in athletics, and is " Muggsy " McGraw of the Scientific Base ball Team. He has shown ability as Editor-in-chief of the Annual and we are sure that he will be as successful in public life as he has been in his school work. OIK TWI S. BUNA BESHEARS, Newton, Iowa Buna Beshears spent her early life in central South Dakota, where she attended the grade schools. Later she attended business college in one of the thriving cities on the shore of Lake Michigan. Feeling the need of a broader education, she came to Valparaiso in 1911. She has been a student here since then and completes the Educational Course this year. While in school she has been an active member of the Y. W. C. A. As to the future plans, she contemplates teaching. BULA BESHEARS, Newton, Iowa Being a twin to Buna, her history and ambitions are the same. Where Buna is there also is Bula. 1IIL IBEHElB3 i EDNA FRANCIS KELLER, Crestline, Ohio Most of her education before entering Valparaiso University was obtained in the schools of Crawford County, Ohio. She spent four years as a teacher and intends to continue in this profession. OWENS, Franklin, Indiana Youth and early manhood spent on his father ' s farm. He entered Franklin Col- lege in 1893, graduated from one course in 1895; taught in the common schools of Johnson County six years. Teacher, Principal and Superintendent, high school work, for fifteen years Owens added dignity to our class, and we all wish him the best of success. MARTHA ROGGE, She has completed the Primary Course and expects to teach. " There beats no heart on either border, When through the North winds blow; But keeps your memory as a warder His beacon light below! " Chicago, Illinoi:- FLORA E. LEACH, Logansport, Indiana Graduating from Logansport, Ind., High School, Flora went to Marion Normal College for a year. She then taught school in Cass Co., Ind., and discov- ered she was musical. What did she do? Came to Valpo — and studied music, and as she says, took the Educational course for pastime. She is going to teach in Cass Co. next year where daily she expects to render a concerto. MOSES M. McELLHINEY, JR. Princeton, Indiana Graduated from the Francisco High School ' 10 and has taught school two years. He will finish Manual Training this year and will go to Lewiston, Minnesota, as instructor of Manual Training and Athletics. ALLIE HATCH, Timewell, Illinois Besides instructing the youths for four years, Miss Hatch attended college at Bushnell, and the Macomb State Normal. Her highest ambition is to study medi- cine four years in U. S., and do some post graduate work in Europe. She no doubt will make one of our leading M. D. ' s. EDGAR C. SITES, Petersburg, West Virginia Our biggest bluff, but still he gets " by. " An orator too is Sites and could be often heard orating to some fair damsel, when he should have been studying. But still he will no doubt make a successful teacher, and later when he takes up Medicine we trust he will be equally as successful. 103 LAWRENCE W. JEFFREY, West Salem, Ohio Jeff is one of whom we should be proud. Is he a base ballist? Well, ask thoss who saw him play second on the Pharmie-Medic ' s team this spring. He is as good a fellow as he is a ball player. Watch his record. LUCIEN E. BROYLES, Jonesboro, Tennessse Southern memories and a northern training. He has taught for several years in the " Sunny " South, and is wide awake in the educational movement. As he is a lover of exact truth he will spend life ' s fleeting days as a professor of Mathematics. " He ' s a jolly good fellow, " and then some. You will know him by his smile. SCHLESIN ' GER, From New York, she came in our ranks to enlist Jolly, good-natured, confirmed optimist, A booster is she, to teaching aspires, The liveliest lady ' mong lots of live wires. Hammond, Indiana JOHN S. GOSHORN, West Salem, Ohio Hornet is the man who put Public School Methods on the map. W T hen he tells a story and you don ' t laugh, send for a doctor. His favorite vocation is posing as a minister. He has a failing for red-haired girls, for the others thsre is no chance. Watch him. It is a hundred to one shot he will " slide by " as easy as he slides his slide trombone. CAROLINE STINCHFIELD, Valparaiso, Indiana Graduate of Valparaiso High School.

She discovered an attractive " Glen " during the full term and is now merely living for the time when she will roam to West Virginia, and spend the remainder of her life beside the aforesaid " Glen. " FLORENTINE STEGER, Norcross, Minnesota Florentine came to Valpo from Minnesota, she says, to prepare to teach school for seventy years. She is a suffragette, and believes a woman can do man ' s work, so to demonstrate she took Manual Training and made some of the boy ' s work in the class look sick. Her highest ambition is to hold the chair of Suffragetology in some large University. LAURA PLOUGH, Vestal, New York Laura is an ambitious and energetic student. Her past work assures us that she will be successful in the future. She will teach in South Dakota next year. 107 PRESIDENT ' S ADDRESS. Educational Class. LLOYD B. KHEKENMANN. smates and friends: ATURALLY it is with a feeling of sadness that I address you today, knowing that this is the last time the Educational Class of 1914 shall assemble. As a consequence of being a member of the class, 1 have made associations that do the heart good. I believe I have derived almost as much benefit from the acquaintances I have made, as from the studies pursued. The class has many reasons to feel exalted. One, I wish to mention, is pertaining to the nature of the work in its department. All the work given in our American schools and colleges is, I suppose, more or less practical in some phase of activity. But so much of it is narrowing. Our recent vocational and industrial trend in education will enable us to live only in a small sphere if precaution is not taken to guard against it. Such a limitation is contrary to innate human tendencies. As one of our venerable instructors has said, if one can do no more than make a good living, he is no better than an animal; for an animal can do that. A man should not educate himself merely to make a living; for without higher ideals, life loses its real meaning. Tf we would acquaint ourselves more with the science of living as well as of life and matter; broader, sweeter, and more consistent lives would result. A specific effect of educational work is to impart an appreciation of life in its broadest sense. We are better fitted as teachers because our course has given us a better understanding of human nature and methods of dealing with it. But is not every man and woman a teacher regardless of vocation? If so, then the same training is a requisite for all. A certain amount of educational work should be a requirement in every profession. It is an education tending to socialize the individual to the extent of rendering civil law unnecessary. There is not enough knowledge and apprecia- tion of the beauty and powerful force of natural law which is effecting the evolution of the universe and society. If we might only understand humanity and exercise judgment that such a knowledge makes possible, 108 conflicts would no longer exist. Utopia would be a realization. So I repeat, that we should he proud of an opportunity that conies to a com- paratively few in this increasingly vocational and practical world. And, classmates, because of the fact that Ave are graduates, we have incurred the responsibility of maintaining such a standard as will be consistent with the faith and confidence that others naturally will place in us. Much is and ought to be expected of us. We have qualified our- selves to do things and there is no alternative. We have placed our- selves under obligations to society for a greater service than our fellow who lacks the advantage of our training, and we shall be held account- able for it. But as a result of honest and diligent endeavor, the supreme goal, happiness, shall be attained. We shall have obeyed the poet ' s command : " Build thee more stately mansions, () my soul, As the swift seasons roll! Leave thy low- vaulted past! Let each new temple, nobler than the last, Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast, Till thou at length are free, Leaving thine outgrown shell by life ' s unresting sea. " 10!) n=r=Tj jESgEEEEE y INIVEOSITV CLASS HISTORY. MARY GOSS ROMIG. FF OIK) said, that the Educational Class is a class without a his- ) Y ( tnry . ' It i- true little was heard til ' us during ,,ur .f imior year. IWl We were too busy climbing to that higher plane even to organ- j 0 %JMj izc or have a class rush. We daily kept before us the motto, " Life is a quarry out of which we are to mold, chisel, and complete a character. 1 ' To be sure, we were not always distinguished by our scholarship. No doubt the text books were to blame; and then, the first few months were pretty well occupied in finding out where the next recitation would occur. Then, too, it was hard, almost unbelievable even when we would " study carefully, " " quote the words of the author, " " explain fully " and " rethink " to learn that the greenness was in the mind and not in the grass; that we loved every one in the class and that an idea is mental because the mind can deal only with the mental. " Educationals, the classiest class on the hill. You ' ll find us in class at sunrise. " You ' ll find us at sunset with something accomplished, something done. Our fame got abroad and students came from far and near to swell our ranks. Irish, English, Swiss, German, Japanese, Ital- ian and " Hoosier " form this cosmopolitan class. Nearly one hundred young men and women graduate from the Edu- cational Department this year. For the first time, the degree of Bach- elor of Arts is given in the Educational Department. This brought to our class Seientifics, Lawyers, Classics, and Engineers. In short, all those who are preparing for " complete living. " One morning in January, we went to school seemingly as usual but what a surprise was in store for us. On every black-board was written, " Meeting of the Educationals tonight in Room ' D ' at 7:30. " Our Dean announced and said that we should tell our classm ates. Word was passed on like the button on a string. Seven-thirty found us breathless with excitement in room " D. " Whom should we have for president and when should we have a social, — such were the questions asked until we heard the gentle tap-tap on the table calling us to order. Mr. Koch was unanimously elected president. Many meetings were held during his administration to settle such perplexing questions as 110 ■- - ' v. :.;..;; ■ whether to have class pins or rings, the class colors, and should we con- sent to have the Annual called " Spuds " ; if we did, wouldn ' t it show our love for material things ? During Mr. Koch ' s administration the class held its first and only social of the Senior year. The untiring efforts of a well-chosen commit- tee together with the hearty patronage of the class made the social a suc- cess in every respect and one never to be forgotten. It was here too, that we learned from Mrs. Van Camp ' s witty toast, " What Man Is. " " Men are two-legged animals that smoke tobacco and walk on the forked end. They are very tame. You can go up to them and put your hand on them anywhere except on their pocket-books. They have been known to kick under such circumstances. They are like nails in this respect — that in nine cases out of ten if they are crooked they have been driven by a woman. But men, real men, are conscious human beings capable of sorrows and grief. Men, real men, are not merely two- legged animals. " At the opening of the base-hall season we were invited to join in the game, but realizing that it is quality and not quantity that counts, we sent our ablest man " Jeff Jeffries " to play with the " Medics. " As they won the pennant it ' s easy to guess why. But in the words of the prophet, " Enough is enough and too much is plenty. " April fifteenth found us assembled in room " D " for the purpose of electing officers and Class Day representatives for summer term. The nominating speech made by Mr. Sites proved that he believed in " Class Spirit. " The kind that makes us stick together more closely than brothers. After Mr. Bennett ' s nominating speech, we knew who would be Bryan ' s rival. But unlike Bryan, he won. The final results of the ballotting showed that the following persons had been elected: Lloyd Eherenmann, president; Bay Merrill, vice-president; Miss Katharine McGregor, Secretary; Wilbur Smith, treasurer; Lawrence Parsons, ora- tor, Miss Henrietta Fay, poetess; Miss Marguerite Tofte, prophetess; John Goshorn, editor; Miss Anna Prange, artist, and Miss Mary Goss Eomig, historian. The time is drawing near when the class of " 14 " will separate and pass on to become the subject of jests by future class orators. But whatever we are in the future and whatever our vocation, it is not too much to predict that we will always remember with pleasure the years spent in Valparaiso, our teachers and class-mates here, in spite of the cruel oppression, the awful examinations and the tyrannical treatment 113 which lias been ours. We have little doubt that the time here will ran in after years as one of the most enjoyable periods of our lives, so Here ' s to our class and classmates true, Here ' s to our lessons and teachers too; Here ' s to the friends we have met, Here ' s to the grades we didn ' t get, Here ' s to the pleasures we have sipped, Here ' s to the teams we helped to whip, Here ' s to the wise one, here ' s to the fool, Here ' s to our school-mate, here ' s to the school. 112 CLASS POEM. Y PEGI ASUS ' wings have just been clipped. Into Orpheus ' sweet art I never have dipped, My poetic flower in the hud was nipped, " Says I to Kath.eri.ne, Asthore. " Will you then write the Class Poem for me? And I shall ever so grateful be. And the class shall sing its praises to thee. " Says I to Katherine, Asthore. Then after she ' d listened to my lamentation She gazed at the ceiling for her inspiration And she wrote the following — without hesitation Did she, did Katherine, Asthore. Ye interested spectator list! i relate The tale of a class at whose fame marvels fate That directs their way, The power they display, Shall assure them an entrance through St. Peter ' s gate. Nor yet may they take for themselves all the fame Their success, their achievements through him they may claim Whose patience, whose skill Made our troubles seem nil. Our Dean is the judge who umpires our game. His approval we longed for, his sanction we sought With hours of labor, commendation we bought. .Inst to hear Our Dean say " That is quite right — to-day " Was ample reward for those struggles we fought. 114 ■m Si m « JNIVEUSITY And then while lie led us through Dewey ' s deep maze Mr. Ellis ' twas helped us up out of the haze Examples galore He placed at our door, We were urged on these great men to focus our gaze.

IASH-OUT. Train will be delayed four hours. " I took my book and camera and started out; there seemed to be no sign of civilization except the tracks winding in and out at the foot of the mountains. There was no path, but foliage and flowers grew on every side. I walked on and on, m far in the distance I saw a bright spot of color, but wearied I sat down to rest: " Flowers are stars, wherein we read our history As Astrologers and Seers of eld, Yet not wrapped about with awful mystery Like the burning stars which they beheld. " Then I started toward the bright object beyond. As I neared it I saw that it was a large bud. As I reached forward and touched it, it opened with a puff and emitted so strange an odor that I felt dizzy. As I looked into the heart of the flower I saw a beautiful campus. A poster — " May Festival — Valparaiso University, 1873-1953, " hung on a large office building in the center and for blocks on every side, were University buildings. I pushed back a petal to see what stood where my old home had been, — the petal came off in my hand, — and there I saw a large building — " The University Press " with Goshorn, Editor in Chief, just going in the door. As he picked up the last edition of his paper I saw in the advertising section: Lots for Sale, in Valparaiso Suburbs, formerly Prattville, Moses McEllhiney, Agent. On the front page was a poem entitled " Memories of Valpo-College Days, " Kathar- ine McGregor, Dean of Literary Department, Chicago University; and in large headlines I saw " Wonderful Results Obtained by the Court of Domestic Relations, Mesdames Rogna Vennesland Brown, Bernice Ernsberger Jackson and Mabel Doan Smith have by their united efforts saved one thousand families from divorce, and have not even been divorced themselves. ' ' The scene then became blurred and I plucked another petal; here a wonderful sight met my eyes, — a garden party on the roof of East Hall. In the reception committee I recognized Caroline Stinchfield. Mary 116 Romig, Lulu Laudenslager and Anna Prang. Among the guests assem- bled were a few whom I knew, Solomon Bassow, manager of Shakes- pearean Dramas, now playing in Hobart; Franees Agar and Edna Green, — just returned from their annual trip to Glasgow; L. S. Strahan, who had revolutionized the world with his zoological studies of guinea pigs. Mrs. 0. C. Van Camp, Alma Johnson, and Emer Jane Fleming who com- posed the St. Louis School Board; Sophia Daniels who was Governor of South Dakota, and Lloyd Ehrenmann now traveling with Sousa ' s Band, which was to play at chapel the next morning. I pulled another petal and here I saw the commencement exercises of a country school in Kansas and heard a boy giving an address on " Class Spirit. " I though surely L had heard that some place before, and when I looked over the audience, Edgar Sites, a popular rancher, was leaning over to Lawrence Jeffrey, Chief of Police, and saying, " I knew the boy had it in him, just wait till send him to Valpo. " and Lawrence nodded and said, " You ought to see my boy play hall, 1 tell you, he ' ll show ' em too. " A sunny southern view was then brought before me, and here 1 saw Buna Beshears, Allie Hatch, Flora Leach and Maude Whisenlmnt leaving a large school building. For years they had worked upon the " negro problem " and decided that they would do their best to uplift them by teaching them. They spent their leisure time at a beautiful " Summer " home, the hostess was formerly Miss Hazel Klima. I plucked another petal and portions of New York went flitting by. I glanced at the names on the buildings,— Chas. Edward Booth, Jeweler and Engraver, Diamonds a Specialty. Florentine Steger, Plans and Models for Modern Cities and Manual Training Supplies. Walter Schulze and John Marino, Managers of The International Teachers ' Agency. Edna Keller, Champion Swimmer of the World. A large ocean liner in mid-ocean was on my next petal and 1 saw that an entertainment was being given by a quartet composed of Chas. Marino, G. H. Mayer-Oakes, Luciene Broyles, and W. B. Owens. Edith Dickinson, accompanist, Frances Emerson, Reader. On one deck was an aeroplane garage in charge of Rudolph Koch and Edward Koliner. Catherine McDonald ' s aeroplane was in for repairs. A very distin- guished looking gentleman then appeared and I learned that this was Dr. Wilbur Smith, the Ship ' s Doctor. Then a sweet faced nurse, Bula Beshears, passed by. Among those aboard were Count Vanderwort and bride, enroute to Vienna, and the bride was Mayme Conroy. D. B. 117 H. Johnson and Mrs. Pearl Johnson had been studying in Europe and were now conducting tourists ' trips. Lottie Wanzer and Frances Smith were taking a vacation after a long Chautauqua tour. Marie Plummer was preparing to take vocal lessons in Berlin; Ida Young was going to till her new position as model for Paris gowns. Bess Stinchfield, Henri- etta Fay, Edward DeBolt and Robert Hester were going camping at Lake Geneva in response to an invitation from Martin Prang, President of the Lake Geneva Club, and Manager of the Tennis Courts. My next petal took me nearer home. As A. E. French was driving Prom his farm to visit his old friends, Alva McKesson, the minister of the Baptist church and his bride, Eena Schlessinger; Berton Howlett, Mayor of Valparaiso; H. Omer Bennett, Supt. of Porter County Schools, lie stopped to talk to Alvin Lauders, who was sitting on a log, fishing at Sagers. Alvin hadn ' t had any luck so far, and shaking his head, he said, " But that doesn ' t bother me like that rooming house of mine; don ' t you want to swap your farm for it, French? The students aren ' t like they were when I was a hoy. " As this vision faded away, I saw an automobile draw up to the curb in Omaha, Nebraska. It bore this sign, Laura Plough, for Mayor, Martha Rogge, for Justice of the Peace. Then I saw a Gary Theatre Program Lecture — What Women have done for Gary — Olive Donahue; Wonderful Acrobatic Wonders — Hiram Fnlcher and John Baumgartner. Fancy Dancing, Homer Goddard, George Green wait, Clayton Rhodes and R. Ray Merrill. The last petal broke and here I saw the Government Buildings at Washington and heard a man shouting; the only word I could dis- tinguish was " Kentucky. " I knew at once that it was T. F. Ellis. Richard Harmon was in the city endowing charitable institutions, hav- ing amassed a fortune in the manufacture of the " Harmon Harmonious Harmonicas. " A large building bearing this sign, Meals — A la Valpo- nesian, $2.00 a week; John Behnke and A. Bernard Colligon, Proprietors, next appeared. E. V. Parsons, Secretary of State, then passed. He had at last succeeded in establishing world wide Peace. Benjamin Franklin Schafter, true to his namesake, was an agent for lightning rods. Now I had seen all of the members of the 1014 class and only a part of a petal remained. As I plucked it to see what the future had in store for me the train whistled shrilly. Startled, the petal fell from my hand and fluttered down the mountain side. 118 BAILEES. EAEL V. PAESONS. IN PKEPAKLMi my little talk for this occasion, 1 presumed that most of you either arc, or are preparing to be teachers. The problem that interests both the school and the state is that of the child. This is no new problem. In all ages and in all countries people have had to deal with it. Someone has called the child the, " Battleground of the Kingdom. " It is said that, " He who sins against a little child sins against God. " The sublimest song to be heard on earth is the lisping of a human soul on the lips of a child. Then how emphatic should he the lessons of truth. How impressive should he the principles that tend to establish right character in the instruction and training of children. It was Parson who said, " What if a diamond should be placed in your hand and you were told to inscribe on it a sentence which should be read at the last day and shown there as an index of your own thoughts and feelings, what care, what caution would you exercise in the selection. " Now that is what is to be done. You are to be intrusted with the immortal minds of children on which you are to inscribe every day and every hour, by your instruction, by your spirit, and your example, something that will remain and be exhibited for or against you forever. " Webster trie d to impress us with a like thought when he said, " If we work upon mar- ble, it will perish; if we work upon brass, time will efface it; if we rear temples, they will crumble into dust; but if we work ' upon immortal minds, if we imbue them with principles with a just regard for honor and love of our fellow man, we engrave on those tablets something that brightens to all eternity. " It is most essential that we come to a full realization of the responsibility we assume in the task- we have under- taken. For the destiny of the future is in our care. The cause of education and the educator is on a higher plane than ever before in the history of American pedagogy. The time has been when the teacher had to apologize for his professional existence. He was compelled to yield in what was considered a more honorable call- i ng. " Let the son of promise, " said the old custom, " Lead law and study politics; let another of lesser capacity study medicine or theology. 1!! but let the dunce, if such there be, study Pedagogy. " But in the evolu- tion of things that day has passed. Instead of the teacher having to skulk down side streets and alleys like the flogged schoolboy, today he can look the world in the face and inarch in front of the procession. Jefferson, Cleveland, Harrison, Taft and Wilson, with their brilliant careers, should, seeing that our work is coming more and more to take rank where it belongs in the estimation of right thinking people, encour- age us to greater and nobler things. In this great country of ours the standards of scholarship and cul- ture, both for individuals and institutions, have at last attained a posi- tion that reflects great credit on us as a nation. The history of educa- tion in America is the history of a great struggle. The pathway in more places than one has been covered with blood. From the time that John Harvard, with his small library and still smaller donation, planted the seed for a mighty Mecca of learning in New England down to the present the conflict between ignorance and intelligence, between charity and covetousness, has been a bitter one. Were it possible to pave a roadway with the skulls of those who have consecrated their lives to the cause of education, and whose remuneration has been but the shadow of a pittance it would make a thoroughfare many miles long. But as no great truth can lie forever buried, and no great principle for the uplift of humanity can be ultimately crushed, so when the torch of civilization was lighted in the East, and passed thence to a mighty country in the West, our teeming millions felt the impulse for a higher and nobler state of things. And we today as we look forward into the future, are the bailees of a wonderful legacy, more lasting than hills of granite, more precious than silver or gold. Its power no man can calcu- late, nor can the seeds of ignorance and superstition hold it in check. It is " more glorious than the sun, fairer than the moon, and more terrible than an army with banners. " And as long as the stars shall feed in the blue pasture of heaven, and as long as the rivers shall know how to run down to the sea, just so long will the bailees of Life, Culture, and Knowledge keep watch upon the Towers, lest the profane enter in while we slumber and despoil us while we dream. We have the result of twenty centuries of education and civiliza- tion instrusted to our care, with the present century the greatest of them all. All previous ages have paid tribute to it. For unnumbered years the world did little but creep and crawl, but it is now on its feet and beginning to run. It took the world ages longer to get to the first wagon 120 52J 3ES-- EHES-S wheel than it has taken it to come from the wagon wheel to the automo- bile. The wildest fancies of a hundred years ago have been more than realized. No prophet can anticipate what the record will be ere the close of the present century. But all this has a meaning for us. If we have so much in our favor we also have much more against us. The whale that scooped up Jonah will be but a sardine compared to the one that will stiffen his fins and make a dart for us. We will have battles to fight that will make the storming of Port Arthur seem like marching in a kindergarten game. The world is old but the heart is young, the sweetest songs are yet unsung; earth ' s richest treasures are yet unsought, earth ' s bravest bat- tles are yet unfought. Then work and win for the world is wide, and its doors will open on every side; look not on the past with vain regret for the best things haven ' t happened yet, To meet the demands of this progressive, scientific age we need the very best training we are able to secure. If we would succeed in largest measure we must have the very best in scholarship, culture, and morals that is to be had. It is a truism that there is no mastery without strug- gle. In the moral, the spiritual and the intellectual world, whatever is worth having has been hedged about with difficulty, with hardness even, mayhap that those attaining it might, in the very struggle for its attain- ment, acquire that strength that will make them worthy of it and the experience that will teach them to appreciate and use it rightly when attained. Democracy shall yet teach the world to measure honor and reward men not by what they do, but how they do it; not by what they have, but what they are; not by what they get, but what they give; to measure education by the mastery and the manhood it produces. 12] HgBBgHJg s= EWOWIIMKI CONDITIONS IN E§ 0 zai txats; JN1VE1U5ITV TO COME TO AN UNDERSTANDING. HOUGH we are not at all unduly impressed with the enormity of our work, it appears to us that a few words in explanation of how, why, and by whom, the scribbling for this department was done, would not be out of place — particularly as we realize the injustice of saddling the class as a whole with the responsibility for our crimes. The material for the write-ups was secured by the editor and his assistants through an intimate knowledge of the class-members, by inquiries to the members and their friends, and — when this was insuffi cient to secure scandalous gossip — we resorted to the Pinkertons, Burns ' Agency, and other similar sources. The material thus secured was sometimes accepted in the form in which it was received, but was more often modified to suit our fastidious, if not dainty, taste; the aim of such modification being to make the write-ups witty, clever, funny, or just silly. In all the work we received the ready and valuable assistance of Miss Conroy and Mr. Baker, as well as the other regularly elected mem- bers of our staff, and we take this opportunity of expressing our grati- tude for their services.

He has not yet. found any particular school of philosophers who accord with his views and so is engaged in writing a book to establish " The Ultimate Truth. " GRACE McCALL. Grace McCall, commonly known as " Mac, " hails from Red Cloud, and is as happy and care free as the wild Indian for whom her town was nam?d. She spent much of her tim? at Sagers, and there developed a fondness for Pharmacy which induced her to specialize in the course — by proxy. She is the best smiler in the class. ELLIOTT CONROY. A fiery little chap. In fact, he makes us all wonder how such a termagant can produce " linked sweetness long drawn out " in such large quantities. He pre- sided for one term with considerable dignity in spite of his size, or rather, lack of size. CARRIE MOORMAN. Carrie had too much idle time so she took ten hours out and spent the rest of her time in weight-lifting, shot-putting, hurdling, and other demonstrations of mus- cular strength. She would have taken the whole course in one term but Pa Kinsey thought it would spoil her beauty sleep. Her present looks prove Pa ' s wisdom. JOHN F. WYCISLIK. John comes from the geliebtes Vaterland, across the briny deep. He says he is a German Pole, but, believe us, he is no sapling. For three years he has steadily plugged along. In love and war he has been firm and steadfast; even too stead- fast, we fear, for we are told, that while upholding the honor of the class in the spring rush, some ill-mannered Medic stepped on his toes for a distance of five feet and three inches. However, John promptly recovered, and is going to show that he harbors no ill feeling by soon becoming a Medic himself. ROBERT W. CLARK. He comes to us from a wild and wooly country but physics and chemistry have lessened the charms of the woodlands and water falls so dear to his boyhood days. If he survives the fourth term he will be here next year. In time one may learn to like him. JAMES E. ZERFACE. The Adonis of the class. That such a handsome dub should be so exceedingly unamiable has given concern to more than one of our big hearted coeds; but their very disinterested efforts in behalf of his reformation have met with complete failure. 132 ELZA NEEDHAM. Elza decided that it was better to be an educated man than a married one. So he pulled up stakes and pi tched his camp in Valpo. His beautiful pink complexion, and hair colored to match force us to believe that his grandfather at least must have sworn in the Irish dialect. He is a good sort and the class showed how well they liked him by making him their last president. He is a very ardent base ball fan. JOHN F. DANIELS. (Extract (Tom Who ' s Who, 1950 edition.) Daniels, John Elverson; noted educator and barrister, born at Pleasant Mount, Illinois. Worked successively as clerk, huckster, farmer, carpenter, photogra- pher, and steel inspector. Later he spent several years at Valparaiso acquiring: a very broad and liberal education. After devoting several years to the educa- tional field he settled down in his native town. In 1925 Judge Daniels was admit- ted to the bar and he now enjoys a lucrative practice. His law offices now occupy the whole upper story of John Green ' s blacksmith shop in Mount Pleasant. C. M. WILLIAMS. We all knew Clyde, for it was he who manipulated the intricate machinery of the dinner bell at Lembke and produced those pealing chimes which we so loved to hear. He is going to teach, but, as a side line he will probably do prospecting work. He has made a good start in finding a nugget of " Gold " no less brilliant than massive. OLGA BERG. Olga Berg, our little Norwegian girl, comes from the land of the Uakotas. When she arranged her program for her senior year, she forgot to set aside any tims for amusements, but, by careful planning, she managed to spare a little time to look after Booth. She found this so much to her liking that she has decided to go to West Virginia, and care for the Booth all her life. AUSTIN RYAN. In eighteen hundred ninety-one Old Nick got stuff from the usual run, With devilish design; The Lord came by — old Nickie ran, God took the stuff — formed wholly Man; We call him, Austin Ryan. WILFRED MARTIN. Not the author of the " Human Body, " but a steady and earnest worker. He generally considered a sage, because he keeps his mouth too well closed to reve anything else. 133 .■■■■■■•■ ' . MAURICE C. DEMMY. Another native of Penn ' s Woods. Maurice, since he has taught school four years, and been a student the same length of time, knows all the sorrows and sufferings that can come to poor mortals. But he has found a panacea which, he says, never fails to heal any or all of these ailments and put them away into oblivion. This simple cure-all is root beer. Sold by " druggists " everywhere. JOSEPH SKRYPCO. He came from Lithuania to hurt our conceit as students. He manages to get about five hours sleep a day and when asked to explain this, says he does it to cut down expenses on his oil bill. A priest to be — perhaps. MAYME CONROY. A Kansas sunflower, who has demonstrated that a girl can take care of herself and get through school on her nerve. She overcomes all difficulties with a smile, and the gates of fate open at her touch. The greatest stunt Mayme ever pulled off was the piper ' s dance when the Irish got Home Rule. A jolly good fellow. WALTER KRASCHIN. One hundred and fifty pounds of European dignity imported direct without loss through transportation. He is a linguist and a noted equestrian. I. I. ISBELL. That a man who has spent his entire youth chasing jack-rabbits could ever settle down to a seventeen-hour Valparaiso school day has been clearly demonstrated in this man. But, " Dux femina facti, " thert is now a Mrs. I. I. Isbell. BARNEY O. WILCOX. He refused to gratify the gossip mongers by doing anything extraordinary until he " up and got married. " Close observers have noticed that, since then, his fore- head, if not his intellect, have been growing at a very rapid rate. MISS LAURA BISHOP. Laura is one of God ' s unclaimed Blessings. She is the " Lone Star " of the 1914 constellation of Scientifics, having come to Valparaiso from the black land prairies of Texas, where she has taught school for some time. Next to Texas, she loves Valparaiso, this being her second time to spend a year here. GILBERT HOLUM. An authority on things Norwegian. He is as familiar with Ibsen as some of our girls are with Laura Jean Libbey; even Strindberg doesn ' t faze him. OLIVE DONAHUE, Valparaiso, Indiana During her many rambles around College Hill she revealed her love of nature, when she discovered a " Glenn " beside which she became so lost In dreams that it was well for her studies when " It " was removed to West Virginia. Now her thoughts are constantly turning to that place and to the time when she will again stroll beside her " Glenn. " 134 nan M2ti?r— gEaaMsH FRED E. McWHIRTER. Whenever Mac gets two rods from his room he never has his hat on. He starts out with it alright, but is such a hustler that he can ' t help getting away from it in short order. He is working his way through, and— hang tne capable cuss- manages to save considerable besides. SOPHIA DANIELS. Sophia is from North Dakota — very much so indeed. There she saw and noted everything worth knowing. In fact, if her powers of observation are equally keen here, she should be the best booster for Valpo. D. VON HAUGENSVOLL. An export of the " smoky city. " However, in spite of his origin, he is a very nice chap, don ' t you know. His great leaning seems to be towards literature. After several years of research, exploring innumerable volumes among the antique collection of " Doctor " Card, he has expressed the opinion, concurrent with those of other great critics of the age, that Bill Shakespeare was a great man. DALE D. SPARKS. Dale is a home-grown product, with the accent on the " home, " for he has not grown enough to speak of. As for ability, he can unravel the mysteries of higher mathematics with the best of them and knows chemistry from " Genesis to Revel- ation. " He never went very wild over the girls, but preferred the less expensive sports of fishing and tennis. An all-round good kid. JOHN A. RODGER. He was one of our presidents. Too confo undedly serious to make fun of, though his twelve size shoe is tempting bait. Uncomfortably crammed with convictions and the biggest man in the class. ANDREW KALLSTADT. Andy came here from California. When he landed there is unknown, but he was probably not a forty-niner. He must have come through Kansas on his way here, for he certainly knows the principles of pumping hot air. His long suits were chemistry and Socialism. CARL J. SHAFER. A few years ago, Carl opened his blue eyes and began to smile. Since then he has smiled continually, yea unceasingly, and may it be even so unto the end of his days. Carl ' s favorite epigram is, " A girl in the hand is the thief of time. " MISS MAUDE GOODHUE. Maude says that the brink of anything is where one stands before jumping in or out of anything. She has often stood by a Brink, but hasn ' t to the knowledge of the class jumped yet. She has a gentle voice, sweet disposition, and writes thrill- ing stories. 135 zafBEEHHgiMiignaaffi - GEORGIA ALCORN. Tall? Yes, indeed! And that she ' s from the Saouth " You can tell just the minute she opens her " maouth, " We wonder, we marvel, how is it she schemes To be known as the pet of our dear " Daddy " Weems Among Scientifics she ' s known everywhere As the highest authority on " Dust in the Air. " Next year Valparaiso her absence will mourn For we hear Arizona ' s to have Miss Alcorn. ANDREW LEPAK. " Speech is great, but silence is greater " — A concrete citation that still water runs deepest. The only impediment to his becoming pre-eminent as a lawyer is the fact that his handwritinf is unique— beautiful and legible. HELEN KEIRN. " Her modest look the cottage might adorn. " She never tires of old Roman masters and though the baby of the class, our Latin star. Our Helen and Helen of Troy, have quite a few things in common — though, of course, she hasn ' t eloped yet. G. W. LLOYD PLETTE. Plette ' s disposition is as rythmical as the music of bells, — however, not " sheep- bells. " Soon the ambition of his life — to be a Chemical Engineer — will be realized and he decided to locate in St. Paul — but not alone. O. C. VAN CAMP. An orator of the old school whose eagle has more than the usual spread of wing. He made a " splendid " figure on the chair and so impressed us with his dignity, that we were sometimes bluffed into thinking he actually said something when he talked. A good fellow and a hard worker. L. S. STRAHAN. A philosophic reasoner and an eloquent speaker, Mr. Strahan has convinced the Faculty that he is entitled to an A. B. degree, and has convinced himself that hs is entitled to a seat in congress, but has not yet convinced Retha that two can live as cheaply as one. ADOLPH GOLDBERG. A mind brimful of subtle humor and unique philosophy. Is illusive; few people understand him. Enjoys Elbert Hubbard and socialist lectures. Adolph himself intends to be a journalist. He ought to make a good one as absolutely nothing receives his consideration unless it is " something clever. " 186 lESBSEsaatt mjBMse JOHN G. BRADLEY. A very talented and likeable chap. He is an old son of the school and came back mostly to honor his Alma Mater. Is tactful enough to make peace under the most adverse conditions, but can fight like the deuce when it is necessary. Altogether he amounts to nearly as much as h3 thinks he dees. CHARLES A. PERRINE. Valpo is this paragon ' s ancestral home. This, he thinks, gives him the privilege of carrying off our degrees with a minimum amount of work. His most strenuous labor, heretofore, has been figuring out how most consistently to abide by this code. ZYGMUNT NOWICKI. Zyg is one of our shining lights as can easily be seen by his luminous hair. He claims that no man ever slept too long and practices what he preaches. EMERY BAKER. The fertile soil of Illinois won its renown by producing large ears and it did its duty nobly when it produced those of our baby boy. Nor are those ears merely for show. Somewhere they have picked up the saying that a dislike for the company of ladies proves a remarkable development of gray matter. Wishing to give the impression that this applied to himself, he has, much against his inclination, religiously abstained from the company of the gentle sex. CLARA BITTNER. A sweet little girl who understands the value of a smile in grade-making. Her name should be spelled Boettner; but that would betray her nationality: So! DALE F. STANSBURY. So mild mannered that he has not succeeded in making a single hearty enemy in all the class. He is at present engaged in trying to find a way to make two obstin- ate hairs on his head lay down. When he finds a solution for this problem he may reply with greater ardor to our girls ' advances. RETHA BREEZE. She is a very gentle Breeze, in fact, quite a zephyr, and so it is only natural that she should be much wooed during such a sultry summer as this. She has very patrician features. ELLA LONDENBERG. When she took Astronomy about six of the fellows did not learn much about the zodiac as a whole, but they did specialize on two particular stars. They are blue and have not yet been listed in the star catalogs. 137 3Sa»EHBsr.« vizir m i ALBERT W. CARTER. Carter was, first of all, a parliamentarian. It took this rigid disciplinarian to tell us at class meeting that we could not be excused even if we had fifty " dates, ' and that we could not adjourn until the business had been transacted, if it took all night to perform said operation. No amount of persuading would induce him to open Altruria after ten until a certain name had been indignantly scrib- bled in that detested book. He is cultivating an appetite for chicken and soon expects to be able to act in the capacity of Methodist preach Q r. GURLEY S. JONES. His words came in a rush, a roar, and a clatter, His classmates would stare and say, " What ' s the Matter? " Then the noise would cease and his classmates would smile, And pass ' round the news, " It is nothing worth while. " GEM SAYERS TYLER. Truly she is a gem, and not a diamond in the rough. She is our typical American girl characterized by her proneness to use slang. She loves tennis and sleep — mostly sleep. OLLIE C. REEVES. We have it on good authority that when he was born the first thing he did was to bring his fist down with a crash. This excessive vehemence was not in order at a " preacher incubator " nor at West Point, but it was of service in making him our pitcher and base ball manager, and in helping him keep his girl. LEWIS HOGE. Mr. Hoge ' s birth had the proper picturesque setting for a great career — he was born in a log cabin. There are two strong influences that govern his life: — a passionate devotion to his wife and, children, and an intense antipathy to Social- ism. CECIL B. CORLEY. One of Corley ' s greatest ambitions was to be a good musician, but since he was unable to ascertain whether the sounds of his cornet were produced by vibrations, or vice versa, he decided to enter the field of Medicine. While our friend from the " Sucker " state cures the ills and msnds the broken bones of his patients, he will have his own irascible nature soothed and pacified by a sweet little wife whom he calls Sylva. JOHN H. K. MOFFETT. Another representative from Ireland, and betrays the fact by a delightful brogue in delivering his orations. He is a hard worker and a Latin shark. He intends to be a minister " That Cristes gospel trewly wolde preche. " 138 HILTON W. GOODWYN. Hear him, our class orator, Mr. H. W. Goodwyn, or, as one of the ladies put it, that pleasant and amiable Virginia gentleman. His most delightful topic of con- versation is domestic life, and the building of an ideal home. His keenest enjoy- ment is to politely tip his hat to his numerous lady friends and utter the friendly words, " How do you do? " WALTER ALEXANDER PASHKOSKI. Pash has obtained the highest degrees in Girlology. It is said he is always in a " schmear " and continually surprising the world with a new " scheme. " Pash is going to Harvard in September to study law, and if he uses his voice to as good advantage as he did when he was Yell Master, his success is assured. His politi- cal ambitions achieved the vice presidency. CHARLES WEEMS. Charlie is liked by every one, not because he is a professor ' s son, but because he has a winning smile and other things to match. He can always tell a new joke, one that will bring a smile in the most stunjUl classes. J. J. DUDAK. One of Valparaiso ' s brilliant students. He is light-headed, but only on the out- side. His gray matter will be fully equal to the difficulties of Blackstone, as it has been to those of Science. Finished high school in 1912, and will take up Law in the fall. CLEMENT LELASHES. He is so light headed that he attracts the moths at night. So far, though, no bats have gotten into his belfrey. His home is within fifteen minutes of Yale, but he likes our atmosphere better. WILLIAM REITER. He is a good fellow and would be a better for not being a lawyer. There seemed to be an impassable barrier between him and Daddy Weems and the humid atmos- phere of Room C was often cooled by their discourse. Reiter was especially use- ful to let straggling sheep into the Altruria fold. R. P. RUSSELL. Has been sitting twenty-three years at the feet of Gamaliel, devoting the greater part of his time since 1907 to the study of the unknowable. Mr. Russell will accept the Chair of Metaphysics at Johns Hopkins as soon as he is invited to do so. EDGAR C. GROSSMAN. He is our Lawyer Scientific. The judge contemplates attending Yale this fall and after graduation will give demonstrations on free lunch counters and beer gardens. 139 PALL MATHER. A fine specimen for the study of Animal Psychology. Noted for his famous ora- tions " Why is a Bum, " for instance: especially noted for his marvelous memory feats in giving said orations. He immortalized his name in a recent speech before the Board of Managers, at whic h time he discoursed most fluently and waxed most eloquent in an ex tempore (honest, it was) speech which went about thusly: " Ye Mutts and Bone-heads; ye long-eared brayers; ye buckers in the harness; in fact all ye who are ashamed of ye said spuds under discussion, get thee to a nunnery: go and eat prunes the rest of your natural life and after that shovel coal. Amen. " LINDSAY SHARPNACK. After some lengthy deliberations as to what specie of the genus homo he belonged — he was classified as the Elocutionist of the Scientific Class. He achieved notoriety as the " guy that put the fizz in physics " and as the manager of the Track for the Scientifics. He has an instinctive aversion to love affairs though he advo- cates that " a fellow should devote some of his time to other things than study. " LOTTIE WANZER. A gentle soul who never did unkindly. " She talks so little she scarcely seems to talk at all. " A lover of nature and conceded by B. F. to be " marvelous " in her stock of quotations from " the eminent Byron. " She will be a patient, pains- taking pedagogue. EDWARD A. ROTERING. " Yond ' Cassius hath a lean and hungry look. " Yet he wears a smile that won ' t wear off. He enjoys his peace pipe and his morning slumbers. He is naive, a veritable dispensary for witty remarks, frequently given out on the most solemn occasions. 140 THE PRESIDENT ' S ADDRESS. ELZA XEEDHAM. XTO the lives of most of us, at one time or another, there come certain experiences, the memories of which, endure to the end of our lives. One such experience comes when sonic chosen course of study has been completed. We are now nearing the completion of the Scientific Course, and will soon receive our diplomas for graduation. Some of us may enter other lines of study, there yet further to pursue the paths of learning. ( )thers will, at once, turn to the great highways of business and professional life. So great is the confidence and hope of most students that the hours of college drill and training oftentimes seem long and tedious. The youth looking out upon the sea of life sees none but those who have been victorious. He thinks not of the wreck and ruin that are in the unseen depths. Little does he consider the treacherous reefs and whirlpools, or the undercurrents that beat upon the dangerous rocks hidden beneath the surface. Nearly all students feel that theirs is to be a successful life. Yet human life is full of cross-currents and conflicting interests. The bil- lows of the deep, and the whitecaps on the shoals are calmness as com- pared to the contending emotions and passions of human life. Perhaps it is well that youth is hopeful and somewhat blind. For if we could see some of the trials and hardships that are to come into our lives, it would only make us unhappy, and tend to turn us back in our life ' s work. But it is well that one consider the many failures, and make a careful survey of the causes producing them, in order that he may the better avoid the same breakers that have wrecked those around him. We are now about to go out of school life into life ' s school. In doing the work required in the Scientific department, there have been some subjects disagreeable to all of us. We have said concerning cer- tain studies that all we wanted was a grade. What did we care for the subject ? We never intended to use it. But the powers that be declared that we must have a credit in that subject before we could graduate. Many of us have felt like quitting. And some of the faint-hearted may 141 be found in other departments where the burning of midnight oil was not required in order that a problem in mathematics might be mastered, or that forty lines of Virgil might be translated. What has been the spring to action that has kept us in the fight until the goal is now in sight? Has it been the desire of praise and honor, or the prestige that a degree carries with it? Possibly each of these might be considered as factors. But with many it has been the loved ones at home, father, mother, sister, or brother, and other dear ones. They were not to be disappointed in us. They have been looking forward to our graduation with more pleas- ure than have we ourselves. If we by our work have caused their hearts to thrill with happiness, it has, for that alone, been worth while. But the chief satisfaction to be derived from our work is, that we have accomplished that which we started out to do. It will aid in forming the habit of perseverence that will be a valuable asset later in life. Long is the course that we soon will enter. We will find many things that we will wish were not in life ' s curriculum. But if we put forth our best effort, and show a spirit of work, the " flunks " will be few, just as they have been in the work we are now completing. There are many things that our college life should have done for us. We should have developed a spirit of humility. For who can have done work in science without realizing his own littleness as compared to the great forces of nature! May all of us have developed clean habits and high ideals, although we may find it difficult to carry out these ideals in life. Let us have faith in ourselves, and having found our life ' s work learn to love it. May none of us ever forget that we are but one in a world of many; that there are others who deserve considera- tion, and whose needs and failings are similar to our own. May we all help solve the problems of life by taking part in some great cause. As we go down life ' s pathway, well-beaten by those who have gone before, but ever presenting objects of wonder to the inexperienced, let us not forget the friends of our college days, and let us ever be ready to extend to them a helping hand if the opportunity be presented. 142 HISTORY OF THE SCIENTIFIC CLASS OF 1914. DALE STANSBURY. N THE 17th of September, 1912, the Scientific Class of Nine- teen-fourteen came into being — a straggling, struggling group, assembled from the fifty-seven corners of the earth, and with as varied ends and aims in view as could well be found in a class of sixty-odd young men and women. For six months or so the members of the class pursued their various ways for the most part unheeded and unmolested — being, so to speak, in a nebular stage, from which even now is evolving a bright and daz- zling star in the shape of the 1914 Scientific (Mass. Each atom of the aforesaid nebula was mindful of its business and strayed not far from its fellows, but traveled steadily and systematically through the mazes of Trig and Cloud ' s Physics, adding, by a process of accretion, credits which would in the end attach themselves together and produce a " dip. " The first record we have of the class as an organized whole, shows that at 7:1 " ) p. m. on March IS, 1J)13, they were called together and given a " great multitude " of instructions and much timely advice by our worthy Dean. For the first time an election was held and S. P. Ander- son was honored with the office of President. His term was a peaceful one, unmarred by either internal or exter- nal conflicts, but the class was progressing surely toward the expected goal, and picking up important items of knowledge more or less remotely connected with the courses laid down in the curriculum. Most of us had by this time discovered the days when B. F. Williams calls the roll, and had learned that A-square expects us to be in class at least fifty- nine minutes every day. The celluloid collar and ready-made tie had begun to be replaced by Moser ' s latest importations, and the young- ladies looked and said that it was good. And now came summer on apace, and with it thoughts of heavy 1 courses in Sagerology and meager hours in other less interesting and desirable subjects. But even the lure of moonlight walks and talks in shady groves could not call the minds of the class entirely away from parliamentary activity, and as a consequence a now familiar body assem- bled, and Mr. Anderson turned over the reins of office to his duly elected successor, A. W. Carter. 143 • ' • ■ ■■■■. ' As the summer term neared its close, a few progressive, pleasure- loving members of the class bethought themselves to enjoy in com- munion the sylvan recreations which they had been heretofore pursuing in groups of two. So, after much weighty deliberation and extensive {(reparation, a class picnic was held at Wahub Lake on a sunny Satur- day afternoon in July. At last the end of the forty-eighth week rolled around, and Penn- sylvania and Grand Trunk stations — yes, even the Nickel Plate and the G. I. — were again scenes of ceaseless activity. The streams of young hopefuls poured out and were scattered to the mountains and valleys from whence they hailed. Lembke and East Halls closed their doors; the proprietors of the Dutch Kitchen and the French Cafe settled back in their arm-chairs and yawned, and the Hill was wrapped in peaceful slumbers once again. So ended our Junior year. Four weeks of mother ' s Sunday dinners, and we were back again, but this time as grave and sedate Seniors, fully realizing the importance and responsibility of our position, and ready to mete out advice and warning to unsophisticated Juniors. No time was lost in reassembling and reorganizing our forces for this, the crowning year of our college achievements. The office of president was heartily bestowed on big, genial Jack Rodgers. The fall term rolled by without events of note except the election of 0. C. Van Camp for president, with the rest of his administration. Mr. Van Camp ' s term of office will best be remembered for the only class social of the year, and for a general awakening of class spirit which will make the year a long remembered one. The second week of the spring term was marked by the election of Elliott Pi. Conroy for president. The history of " Shorty ' s " regime alone could cover sufficient events to fill a fair-sized book. The scene of spring was in the air, and with it the base-ball season, and the ever attendant class rivalry. The Pharmics started it, then the Lawyers had to keep their self-bestowed reputation of running the Hill, and soon the Campus and the athletic field resounded with mediaeval war cries, and flaunted gaily-colored banners guarded by zealous mobs armed to the teeth. The actions of the Scientific class were the object of much base calumy during this stormy period, owing to our refusal to be dragged headlong into any half-baked schemes for the determination of class supremacy. 144 Instead, as befitted our name, we weighed every phase of the situa- tion calmly and scientifically, organized our forces on a true strategic basis, with Ollie C. Reeves at the head, affiliated ourselves with the Engineers and Commercials, and were fully prepared to become masters in the conflict. But by this time our opponents, wearied by much internal strife and viewing with alarm our warlike preparations, sud- denly ceased all hostile activities, and peace reigned once again. It was at this stage that we were accused of following a Falstaffian philoso- phy in regard to valor (see Bill Shakespeare or B. F. Williams); hut we were truly victorious for we were never defeated. It was diiring this term also that an exceedingly low-water mark in Parliamentary Law grades was reached, occasioning several outbursts of indignation and other sotto voce mutterings of discontent, but all to no avail. On the evening of April 30, there occurred what was undoubtedly the stormiest and most enthusiastic election held by a Scientific class of Valpo. The presidental candidates had been electioneering for weeks in a manner worthy of a Tammany boss, and were on hand with their constituents, ready for a decisive battle. The lot fell to Elza Needham. and his victory was greeted with uproarious cheers. And now comes the last scene which ends this strange eventful history. The summer term is here again, bringing with it, for the most of us, Astronomy. Ah, gentle reader, let no cold, practical man of the world instill into you the belief that this refined and most cultured science is of no value, for what is more desirable than to walk with HER beneath the twinkling canopy of heaven, pointing out one by one the constellations of Leo, Draco, and so on down the long list, and have a pair of eyes as blue as the moonlight sky itself look proudly into yours, and a soft voice tell you that you are the wisest, dearest man in all the world? And so we must leave the Profs, and Fate to decide the final out- come of our University career. Many important events are yet to take place. The sumptuous Senior banquet, the class-day program, and, last of all, Commencement will, in turn pass by, and nothing but their memory will remain. The nebula which has been alluded to elsewhere, is rapidly condensing to a solid mass, sending off meteorites which will in turn form other stellar systems of their own. Our fondest hope is that they may be as brilliant and glorious as their parent nebula. 145 SEffiiEHQEEr.iiHffl 1 A DAY WITH THE RED BIRD. LAURA B. BISHOP. STREAK of fire from tree to tree; A whistle clear and fine; The soul of that brave bird I knew " Was calling unto mine, I could not choose but answer. Then up, away, for one glad day A day both fresh and bright; All care and sorrow left behind, When we two take a flight: And on, and on go sailing. Across the hills and valleys green, Across the landscapes gay, We hurried on from farm to town; I could not help but say, " Why on and on go flying? " Beyond the town, a woodland old, A forest deep and solemn; He led me on to haunts of birds, A place forever golden, To all who find earth ' s beauty. A drop of wing, a sunlight gleam, He need not now make answer; W 7 hile on a branch he sat and sang To a love far up the river: My heart caught up the meaning. Across the trees a dusky mate, Came flying to the call, The call that spoke unto my soul, The one that speaks to all, The deep voice of all Nature. 146 A VISION OF THE FUTURE OLIVE M.

HILTON GOODWIN. T is said of Napoleon that he once lamented the fact that he had arrived on earth so late. Cyrus, Alexander, and Ceasar had successively built world empires and it was too late, he said, for another great honor to be obtained. I have likewise heard of would-be inventors, who fold their arms and sit with quiet composure saying, " Whitney has invented the cotton-gin, Fulton has invented the steamboat, Morse has invented the telegraph, what remains to be done? " To such as would ask this question I am addressing myself today. As great as has been the need of society in days gone by; as much as has been done by inventive genius and industrial revolutions; it is doubtful if there were ever a time when more problems, or greater problems confronted those who were looked to as guides and engineers in the doing of the world ' s work, than today. Consider, for instance, our sources of available energy. At the pres- ent rate of increase of fuel consumption, the coal supply promises to last one hundred and fifty years. We estimate the latent heat of coal com- bustion to be about eight thousand calories per gram. Of this great heating quality the average amount utilized in the modern methods of use is one-fifth, or sixteen hundred calories, the remaining six thou- sand four hundred calories going to waste. Where is the chemist and physicist who will teach us how to utilize this heat energy that we are now wasting? To do so will be to make the coal supply run us three thousand years, instead of the one hundred and fifty years now estimated. Then a word concerning agriculture. We are making stronger and stronger demands upon the soil for the support of an ever increasing and prodigally living population. Every crop takes plant foods, and especially, phosphates from the land. x large part of the world ' s sup- ply of phosphate deposits is found in this country. And these are being rapidly exhausted, both for home use and for exportation. It accordingly appears that a day will come when the land will no longer 150 produce, and when there will be no phosphates to put on it. Where is the botanist and geologist who will teach us how to till the land, so that the phosphate supply will not be depleted; or where is the chemist who will work out a formula for economically extracting phosphates from sea water! Many thinkers are wondering what can be done concerning our wastefulness. We carp and grumble year in and year out over the high prices of foods; and at the same time dump into our garbage cans enough to feed the whole French nation, with its extravagant and fastidious classes, or say a third of the people of the Chinese Empire. There should certainly be a remedy for this. England has been able to make an effective law to prevent the waste of growing trees; Germany is effectually husbanding her coal supply, that there may be fuel for future generations; and France is so regulating the mining of her small deposits of petroleum as to make them last as long as possible; and it does seem that we should be able to provide some way to prevent the wanton waste of our meat, bread, and potatoes. The economist who will work out a plan for the prevention of this waste, that Congress or the states may enact and enforce, will do almost as much for the masses of human- ity as Watts did in converting water into energy, or Columbus did in opening up the W T estern Hemisphere. Then, too, work for the social scientist is not lacking. The cities of this country, to say nothing of older countries, are burdened with that motley element of social strata that accumulates as the direct result of tense industrial activity. I refer to the improvident, the idle, the vagabond, and the criminal. I know that much work is being done among these classes by institutions and societies; and may God be praised for every good man and every good woman who devotes thought or effort for the improvement of these unfortunates. However, after all that has been done, and all that is promised to lie done, it yet remains for a master mind to work out a plan by which these weaklings and degenerates may be taken under the special care and guardianship of the state and dealt with skillfully and intelligently; so as to prevent the continued pollution of society with their vicious progeny; so as to make them sustain themselves, and, if possible, bear a part of the burdens of the community; and best of all, to so correct their habits and industrial inclinations, as to make them self-supporting and self-respect- ing men and women. i:.i Z£W=EfcElLI r.. ggIE3»g No, the work has not been done. Industry and efficiency will as quickly find an outlet for their activity today as at any time in the world ' s history. There are many reasons for saying that the scientist of today, who will devote himself zealously and conscientiously to his chosen profession, has before him opportunities promising a life of use- fulness to himself and to society. 9™ III ■ 152 ■■■ ' . ■ DE SCIENTIA LIBRI. JOHN E. WISE PARTING, WHY NOT. S 1CANNOT bear to lay aside my books. I cannot say to them farewell. I cannot speak the word. My mind and heart, my soul, my bones refuse. Indeed for them I laid down my bones or most of them. Each volume represents at least one bone and for some I laid down several. Five bones and more for physics. Dear bones, dear physics — yet differently dear. I would gladly have my bones with me again, yet I should not give up my physics for five bones. I shall forego my bones and keep my books. That they cost the printer only pennies is nought to me. I gave a bone apiece and they are dear, and without them I should not know what work is — nor what it is not. I, who have carried the (). P. Kinsey tuber to and fro, cavorting pliantly round table corners and with elusive and sinuous course, have reached the goal of twelve capacities from the remote discordant Lab- oratory of nutrient productions, should have thought and reckoned, guessed and believed, opined and I doubt not deliberately maintained L worked. But this dear red. book of physics has showed me how I erred. W=F X and x has no value excepting it be up or it be down. To and fro it is zero, and my work nothing multiplied by F. For doing nothing (multiplied by F) I had received each day some tubers. " What but a red book on physics could have made that clear? And now I know I did not work. I merely carried, neither lower- ing nor lifting. My progresses between two pandemoniums were so much hesitation, turkey trot and tango and the tubers I received were prizes for my grace in dancing. Terpischore ' s am I. She is my God- dess, my providence, my dam, Materfamilias I salute you. On behalf of the hundreds of young men and maidens who had thought that work was paying the board bill 1 kiss your foot. 154 We are not working our way through, we are dancing; dancing onward to our goal of glory in the effulgent rays that emenate from your perennial humanosity. Tuber laden we dance and prance and dodge, contorting merrily sidewise, backwards, forwards, and edgewise, as lambs gambol on the green. And for this frolicking we are fed and clothed and housed and educated. Hoch! Hear! Hurrah! Banzai, Viva! No, I could never part with physics. I am not of thai kidney. Nor could I sell or give away my chemistry though men learned in its mysteries might give me away. They know my valency. My efflorescence and my deliquescence, too, have entered within the boundaries of that region which they deem certain knowledge also. My chemistry book is green, as green as I was when I first came here and thought I worked with tubers. But now I know about the matter. Molecules, and atoms and electrons and points negative and points positive. The positive points are those that are fewer and the negative points are those that are not so few. Because of the lessness of their fewness they go to the fewer to promote equalization. As they are points they have not dimensions and as their velocity is infinite they are simultaneously present along the entire route of their progress in this process of equatizing. This simplifies all Chemical conceptions and endears me eternally to my green book. Chemistry, physics, tubers and Terpsichore are one and inseperable in sacred memory within the eternal portals of my soul. And so long as nature abhors a vacuum I shall abhor the thought of parting. Rather, far rather, would I turkey trot with tubers until 1 had three more degrees. 155 ElBEBBB3 fr lBBBH5E EDITORIAL.

WICKER, Lockport, New York " Billie " is a big hearted, good natured fellow and his merry grin and witty remarks have won him many friends. He is always seeking new information. One day he asked the difference between a left hand and right hand band saw. There is no doubt but that he will make good. FRANK ROOF, Bluffton, Indiana Frank, like honest Abe Lincoln, was born in a log cabin, and perhaps like Lin- coln, he will get to the White House. Anyway we are glad he decided to stop off a year with us at Valparaiso. Each one of us apppreciate the patience and untiring efforts which our assistant instructor has shown, trying to make good Manual Training teachers of us.

LAWALIN, Gatchel, Indiana Fred ' s early school days were spent in the rural schools of southern Indiana. He spent several years as a " clodhopper " among the hills, after which he came to Valparaiso, and took the high school course, topping it off with Manual Train- ing. He expects to teach in the " wild and wooly west. " FLORENTINE A. STEGER, Narcross, Michigan Our manager is another member of the class to whom we owe a lot for our suc- cess.

HARDY, Watseka, Illinois We have no fear but that John will make an excellent manual training teacher, since he has experienced eight years as a pedagogue. 16-t PRESIDENT ' S ADDRESS. MOSES M. McELLHINEY, JR. S WE take our departure from our Alma Mater, of which we cannot he too proud, it might he well to compare our own plight to that of the man who admitted, " All things I thought I knew, hut now I confess the more I know, I know 1 know the less. " And it is true that when we meet the difficulties of the world, we feel that we are unable to overcome them in a satisfac tory way. Our time spent in Valparaiso University has been well used if we have learned " How to live. " It is to Herhert Spencer that we must give the honor of saying: " To live completely is first to treat our neighbor right and then we will know how to treat ourselves right. " Our character is chiefly moulded while in school where our youthful days are spent, and it was from one of our great social leaders that we get this statement, " Tell me the type of a man that one associates with and I will tell you the kind of man that he is. " The way one spends his leisure time will greatly determine his character. Our school days will play a great part in our success if we have this solid foundation for our character. One may measure success in dollars, social standing, or by what good he has done in the world. The latter method is the one which I think determines the most successful life. If we use every opportunity that is offered for the advancement of our race, our lives will he suc- cessful. Many of our great men, who have paved the way of education, are men who have given their means and lives to the betterment of mankind, and it is to these men that we are indebted for the well worked out plans and methods through which we have been instructed in Valparaiso University. We consider a man cultivated in the truest sense of the word when he possesses unerring knowledge of what is best in life. Quoting from Oliver Wendell Holmes, " If at times vague aerial flight, none trod with firmer footsteps when he lights, a soaring nature ballasted with a sense, wisdom without her scruples is pretense. In every bible he has faith to read and every altar helps to shape his creed. " 165 : • ft-: .. ■ . IN1VEP51TV The world is changing, education is progressing and the people are desirous of encouraging higher advancement, and with our training we can face these opportunities, while the uneducated will remain nonenti- ties. When was there ever a better opportunity for a well trained, efficient young man or woman than at the present time? We hear cries of disappointment and failure every day, but when we go into the philosophy of the matter we find that there are some phases that we have not done just as we should have done, there is either lack of energy, inefficiency, or carelessnss. We must not be afraid to seek advice from our superiors on that particular subject with which we are having trouble, and if we are the right type of a man we will get the help and encouragement, we will find that we are not fitted for every- thing, but those things for which we are fitted should be well done. After we have worked and conquered the difficult problems which we have had to face while here in school, then to some extent we should be competent to do those things that are required of us in the practical world, and be able to find our calling in life. We are soon to go out into the world of toil and competition, and in order to make our lives successful we must prove beyond any doubt that we possess the ability to complete in a satisfactory way the tasks that we may meet. Classmates, if we are to solve the problems for which we have been preparing, we must make the best of our opportunity. If we treat those for whom we are going to work and come in contact with, kindly and courteously it will help us much in our efforts to become successful. The world will soon be our school, experience, our teacher, and nothing but a lifetime can be our lesson. We are told, that to be recognized among men we must produce the goods, and that is what we, as a class and as individuals, are going to do, for we are made of that material which makes good. We are not going to our tasks reluctantly, but cheerfully, willingly, and anxiously. Let us then, remember that it is for us to work out our own success. let us set out to overcome, as well as we can, all obstacles before us and to accomplish whatever task we may begin, according to the best of our ability. 166 CLASS HISTORY. JAMES L. COB URN. REITERATE the past events of any class, I deem it best, as it is the custom of great historians, to evolve from the simple to the more complex, intermingling a " truth " occasionally to add length to the narrative. On the eighteenth of September, nineteen hundred- tliirteen, some three thousand untrained minds from all parts of the world and New York, assembled in the Auditorium of Valparaiso Uni versity. It was there that Professor Kinsey told us what was expected and what was not, also occasionally mentioning the economic phase of school life. After a two or three hour lecture, he told us where we could find the " heads " of the departments. Among this vast multitude some fifty or more were dodging the street cars on College Avenue trying to find Dean Black and Professor Hyttinen. After wandering about the Hill for some time, we finally found them in the Manual Training Shop in Commercial Building. Here we related our trouhles, and were soon started on the road to success. The next day we met again at the Manual Training shop and were assigned our first lesson. Prof. Hyttinen, with the aid of several who remained from last year, gave us our first instructions in the care and right use of tools. To most of us everything was entirely new. Many had never seen a combination saw or jointer. How awe-struck we were when Prof. Hyttinen assigned us our first work on them, and related that sad story of how many had left the shop minus a finger or two. Then to cheer us he said that some of us, in a few days, might be num- bered with them. As the day passed slowly away many were the new things we learned. Thus ended our first day at the Valparaiso Univer- sity. Mr. Frank Roof soon became Prof. Hyttinen s assist ant. We owe much to him for his instructions. He won many friends by his shrewd- ness and friendly attitude. The first term passed successfully and at the beginning of the win- ter term, to further its success, the " Arts and Crafts Club " was organ- ized with Mi-. Mose McEIIhiney, President, and Frank Roof, Vice-Presi- 167 ' = 3B gHB5r lIgIEBSaiB dent. Many interesting evenings were spent in discussions that tended to further our work. During this term several new members joined the club. At the beginning of the spring term Mr. Albert Hardy was chosen President, and C. 0. Cutting, Vice-President. About the middle of the spring term Mr. Roof demonstrated to the students how to amputate fingers by the use of the circle saw. Mr. Lantis narrowly escaped the same accident on the same saw. Otherwise everything went smoothly. At the second Arts and Crafts Meeting we elected our Graduating Class Officers: Mr. M. McEllhiney, Pres., Roswell Crist, Vice-Pres., Miss Florence Steger, Sec, Mr. Edward Kolmer, Treas., Mr. Nye McFarland, Artist, Mr. H. C. Cutting, Editor, and Miss Florence Steger, Manager. Now the last term of the year has come. We feel that we are broader minded, more self-reliant and in every way better men and women. We are able to rely to some extent on our own resources. The Arts and Crafts Club officers for the summer term were Mr. H. Bently, Pres., and Dale Griffith, Vice-Pres. Its success continued the same as before. The only amendment was by the Secretary, Miss Putter, that we have a better and more prompt program committee appointed than Mack and Tuthill. We can proudly say that the Manual Training Graduating Class of 1914, was the most enthusiastic and industrious class in the history of the Manual Training Department. We, each and all, owe greatly to our worthy Dean, Prof. H. F. Black and to Prof. T. L. Hyttinen. We wish to thank them for their perseverence and the help shown us. Some of us will go out as instructors of the liberal art, Manual Training, trying to develop the young minds. Some of us will remain in this school to broaden our mental faculties. Each and all of us feel that we can depend upon any of the 1914 classmates as our friends. Our parting is not a sad farewell but a parting with best wishes and good luck to all. We are only stepping aside for those who are anxious to enter the field of endeavors, reaching toward the golden opportunity of the future. So now with hearts full of hope for the future achievements, to you of the lower classes, to the faculty, and to you, dear reader, we bid fare- well. 168 itiawiim 1 1 1 1 1 VALPAPAISOr ag naa -E .... ■ ■ " .■■ ' : CLASS PROPHECY. FEANK ROOF. iHNE Sunday afternoon when Mother Nature was at the height of her glory, I wandered about, feeling very lonely, having realized that the time was near at hand when I would have to leave " Dear Old Valpo, " the place where I had had so many pleasant experiences and made so many friends, hi order to retain some of these memories I resolved to take my camera, wander about and secure some of the familiar views. After having satisfied my curiosity, I returned to my room to develop the films I had exposed. Everything went as usual until it came came to the last few films. At first glance I did not recognize some of these but on closer observation 1 discovered these words written in small letters: " The Manual Training Class of 1914 " taken fifteen years hence. My curiosity was naturally aroused and I began a closer examination of the various scenes and characters. The first character to appear was our president, Prof. McEllhiney, who was standing before his class in Psychology in Indiana University. The first scene was that of a large brick building bearing the name of Roswell (Yist and Company, Architecture and Contracting. The sec- ond scene seemed very familiar as it was that of a finely equipped farm in Illinois which was owned and operated by the prosperous and ener- getic Hardy Brothers. A similar scene was that presented by the thriv- ing peach orchard managed and owned by our old friend Harry E. Waid. Of course we cannot all be farmers and peach growers as I realized when I saw our old classmate, Mr. Parcell, among his family of children still wielding the birchen rod, and seated at a table manufactured by the Epps Furniture Company. It is scarcely possible to recognize the next scene for in it was Harry Tuthill with his " gang " of men constructing the great Trans-continental Telephone line, and not least in this " gang " was Elmer Snyder employed as head time keeper. Then the scene changed to that of a Southern home, there Samuel E. Woods, State Supervisor of Manual Training of Mississippi, and his assistant Moses Nelson Parish were being waited upon by their colored servants, while in the distance could he seen the Cutting Brothers collecting items for 170 their timely and witty editorials for which they have become known. As I said before all cannot follow the same line of employment, therefore I was not surprised to recognize Albert Gibson s tanding behind the counter of bis large meat market, filling an order for the Hyde Hotel where Miss Bitter was displaying her knowledge as head cook. In the corner is a Michigan scene where Coffelt, Lantis, Annis, Hersh- iser, and Griffin, Instructors in Manual Training, are assembled to talk over old times and discuss the qualities of a new saw put out by The Wicker and Bentley Mfg. Co. Near this was the picture of Mr. Koch standing at the head of the German Department of Chicago University, a wise and noble man. Now another farm scene appears in which Lawalin is operating a large truck farm near a small town where Biggs is located as General Agent for the Pennsylvania Lines. Last but not least I saw Miss Steger seated on the porch of a beautiful Western home mending the clothes of the family. Such was the end attained by all. 171 i|M v jjft, k.

HHHHHHIH 182 PRESIDENT ' S ADDRESS. WM. 0. SPEEB. Mr. Toastmaster, Ladies and Gentlemen: |]N BEHALF of the Class of 1914 I greet you and to each and every one here extend a cordial welcome to this our season of pride and pleasure. We are proud for three reasons: the recent graduate is ever proud because he knows that he knows; we accept the presence of the faculty to-night as a tribute to the fact that we have done our work well; and the presence of friends and loved ones is ever a tribute to the pride of the fledgling alumnus. We are happy because we see the end of our years of arduous labor in the classroom. When spring comes, the fields turn green, the flowers bloom, and the birds sing, each says in his heart: " I am tired of four walls and a ceiling; I have need of the sky, I have business with the grass. " So it has been with us and we welcome the opportunity to bid fare- well to classrooms. To the faculty I offer no idle word of thanks for what they have done for us. We feel that we can best prove our appreciation of their efforts in our behalf by going forth and letting the world see that we are worthy followers of their teachings. Ye Juniors, no doubt there have been times when you felt that there was no pleasure in your days. I tell you now that before the end of the coming vacation you will be longing for the halls of old Valpo. I prophecy for you an active year, a happy year. Our Dean will intro- duce you to graphic formulae and jaw-breaking terms: yea, if you are blessed with good fortune, he will make you a member of his inner circle — " the ring brigade. " Mr. Bennett will tell you of the six sys- tems of crystallography and will point out clearly the relation they bear to the high art of selling paints, wall-paper, and other drugs. Miss Morrill will lead you in the paths of Histological Pharmacognosy; do not fear the high-sounding title, you may come thru all right and still be able to jerk soda-water and pass out the cigars. Dean Bowman 183 f lSS will tell you how to be a gentleman and how to keep out of jail; Dr. Stoner will instruct you in the latest methods of committing suicide and Mr. ttahm will tell you how to get the money. Along with all this Mr. Wisner will he telling you how to make sweet-pickles for the well, pills for the sick, and face powders for your sweethearts, yea, I dare presume to say that he may even tell you how to give paregoric to the baby when you want to take your wife to a dance. Classmates, what shall I say to you? A few days and we shall be scattered to the four winds of Heaven. We go forth to take our places in the ranks of a profession honored from time immemorial. We shall find that there are two roads open to us, the road of ease and the road of labor. Shakespeare tells us that the I ' oad of ease is a " primrose path- way that leads to the eternal bonfire " : last Sunday Dr. Gelston told us something of the road of labor. In choosing which we shall take I feel that we can do no better than to take as our example one whom we have seen daily, one who has dedicated his life to the daily task before him and has made it possible for us to be together here tonight. If we give ourselves to our profession as fully, as truly as " Pa " Kinsey has given himself to old Valpo, I know that when the last prescription is filled, each of us will deserve the epitaph: " HE HONE HIS DARNEDEST! " mKflLZ - J- l 184 CLASS HISTORY. CLAUDE M. SISCO. HERE is a tide in the affairs of men, which, taken at the flood , leads on to fortune; omitted, all the voyage of their life bound in shallows and in misery. " It seems but yesterday since a group of timid strangers gathered in Valparaiso on one of the great highways leading to a goal that could be dimly seen in the far distance. Their hearts were fired with ambition, and the common thought of all was to reach that coveted place. Beyond this place, they could get a glimpse of a broad extended plain which was said to bear beautiful flowers and to offer very rare opportunities. As they looked, they could see, far along the road, a group of people who had gone before. They appeared to be traveling slowly and sometimes with difficulty, but the dauntless strangers with light hearts set out to follow. This group of travelers was the Junior Pharmacy class of nineteen hundred-twelve. As they became familiar with their environments as well as with each other, all timidity vanished and, choosing, " Let others worry, " as a slogan, they began both to break, and to make a record. We can imagine their way, paved with flagstones, bordered on either side by beautiful trees through the foliage of which stray sun- beams here and there found their way. We can imagine the soft breezes gently fanning and cooling their faces while the birds sang sweetly among the branches overhead, but this would not be a true history. As a matter of fact, the unexpected often happened. Several incompati- bilities were encountered and some precipitated out, but the faculty, by dispensing secundum artem managed to retain the greater part of the active constituents. At the end of the year, when they had reached the great midway station, the remainder of the travelers raised their eyes toward the goal which now seemed so very much nearer. They saw and envied the Seniors, who were emerging upon and beginning to scatter over the great plain in quest of realization of some fabulous dream. With stronger determinations, they resolved to renew their journey. 185 EHaaaaHav ( )n the sixteenth day of September, nineteen lmndred-thirteen, Miss Duff and forty-five young men, an enthusiastic crowd, gathered in room H to organize for the following year. Having received numerous instructions from Dean Timmons, and having been introduced to Pro- fessor Wisner, they set out to accomplish the latter half of their task. At times the work would become heavy, and clouds of responsibility would gather so closely as to almost shut out the light. In their desire to forget these conditions, the boys would resort to various tricks. Sometimes a pedestrian would be startled by a sack of water bursting near his feet. Wearing an expression which, had he known anything about Pharmacy would have meant, " You are a dangerous prescrip- tion, " he would glance at the smiling faces above and hasten on saying many unintelligible things. At other times, a dog which happened to be visiting at the entrance of Science Hall was by a gentle application of a little carbon disulphide, suddenly reminded that he had urgent business across the street. Believing that general development is essen- tial to successful school career, chapel hour was occasionally utilized in practicing gymnastics and voice culture. Chairs in room I were often used as concrete illustrations of molecules, the backs or legs being removed after the manner in which H2() will sometimes split off. Class reactions were often vigorous and unexpected, but there has never been a class more loyal to its Alma Mater. During the first term, chemical analysis, begun the previous year continued, and visions of well equipped laboratories were frequent. Some were going to work in the laboratories of " Uncle Sam, " some were going to work for Parke-Davis, and some were going to set up laboratories of their own for various purposes. Manufacturing was began this term, and such progress was made that no doubt many new proprietaries will be on the market in the near future. The most important feature of all the work at this time was the beginning of a never ending struggle with Materia Medica which led to a study of the Pharmacopoeia. Before many weeks had passed, it was decided to revise both books, omitting all unnecessary things such as official defi- nitions, constituents, official preparations, therapeutics, and posology. The next term, under the administration of President Ferguson, was marked by events many, and varied, ranging from cutting classes the day after Christmas to one of the most exciting political campaigns ever waged by two contending factions of humanity. The latter LS( resulted in the election of George Hugi for president of the Pharmaceu- tical Association of Valparaiso University. During this part of the journey, new difficulties beset the travelers all along the way. It was hard for Mr. Bennett to get them to see how a knowledge of magnetite would aid in dispensing Fowler ' s Solution. It was equally difficult to see the relation between Miss Morrill ' s His- tological Pharmacognosy and the sale of a bottle of perfumery. These things could have been endured, however, and all would have been well, had they not been required to reckon with Organic Chemistry. Pro- fessor Timmons was very kind and often looked sorry, but his sympathy did not help to remember the formula for diethylsulphonedimenthylme- thane. Some were inclined to brood anxiously over the matter, and Paul became so exasperated that he, through his inability to do some- thing more desperate, got married. It was decided that this subject should undergo a revision similar to that of the Pharmacopoeia. At the election near the end of the term, William (). Speer was chosen to succeed Mr. Ferguson. After the election, an invitation was received from Professor Wisner to take refreshments with him at the Gem cafe. It so happened that he could not be present, which fact brought forth an expression of regret, but all present enjoyed the treat very much. The next and last term was begun with a determination hitherto unknown. The goal was now very near and, with unfaltering steps, the travelers marched on. Realizing that they must so soon separate, it was asked how they would ever know of each other in the future. There was one of the number who was accustomed to saying strange and marvelous things. At night, he would don his robes and go out alone (!) in the vicinity of East Hall and spend hours in close communion — we suppose — with the stars. It was thought that he was able to fore- tell future events, so O. B. Roger was chosen class prophet. It was also desired that someone set to rhyme the class beauties, real .and unreal, that were, are, and shall be. For poet one was chosen from whom flashes of imagination seemed to scintillate like sparks of electricity. Lippard said that he had been accused of many things, but never before had anyone accused him of being a poet. This history would be incomplete without reference to the class spirit that arose at the beginning of the base ball season. Whenever a rush was on, the Pharmics with their lifelong friends, the Medics, were always present at the beginning and ready to fight to the bitter 187 Am agSHI «» UNIVEQSITY o " 1= VA -ME-Ki end. The Lawyers, who at first seemed to be the most formidable enemy, realized their mistake and proposed an alliance. The combina- tion was made, and one demonstration was enough to prove " Who runs the hill? " Their lack of numbers was compensated for discipline and enthusiasm. Who cared if Professor Timmons did give a written les- son in organic chemistry during this epoch-making period? The hill was won, Miss Duff, for some reason known only to Mr. Hammond had gone to church and did not know her lesson either, so everyone was in sympathy with everyone else. The next great contest was on the diamond where Stine and Keller won laurels for themselves and helped to make a record for the class. In this, the Pharmics and Medics displayed their usual discipline and were victors in every game. Then it was that the Pharmics had an opportunity to display their skill in dispensing soothing ointment for the wounded spirits of the Scientifics and Engineers. Having accomplished its purpose, the class is now viewing the boundless plain of the future, realizing that what two years ago seemed the end of labor is only a beginning. Nevermore will they travel in a body, with the same purpose, sharing together the beauties of Botany, the toils of Physics, and the pleasures of examinations; but each must select an individual objective point and reach it single handed. Every member must analyze his own future, and become more familiar with the therapeutic value of the constituents of the one great formula, namely, the formula for a useful life. 188 THE RUBAIYAT OF A PHARMIC. (With apologies to Omar Khayyam.) LEON H. LIPPAKD. AKE! For the Pharmic with all this blarring flash, I Has just arrived with much of Father ' s cash. He looks about the streets in search of eats, Finds Heritage the place for beans and hash. Others with minds upon great learning bent Desire for wisdom and with stern intent, Came up old Valparaiso ' s brick paved streets To join the Profs in learned argument. This class of nineteen-fourteen thus appears The pride of pharamcy for many years, Have tried the patience of many a Prof; But as we part, Prof. Timmons sheds no tears. 1 dare presume to say, that in his day Prof. Wisner many salts and drugs did weigh. 189 " . : . •:■ ' .■■■■■ ■ ' ■•■ ' ■ .

Strange is it not that for the things we buy We spend Dad ' s hard earned cash without a sigh, And write home each week the old hard luck plea: " Father, please send a cheque, books are so high. " One Pharmic loved and her fair lips did press She finally nailed him with the mystic yes! Think, what cabs cost today, what yesterday They cost — Tomorrow they will not be less. You know, my friends, with what brave rousing cheers We waded through Lawyers and Engineers ; 191 We played the game and set forth such a pace As will win the Pennant for the next ten years. Perplext no more with Kemsen or Newell, The juniors soon must learn Prof. Wisner ' s rule. Tonight our worries throw to the four winds For a few more days and we leave this school. Yon rising Moon that looks for us again — How oft hereafter will she wax and wane; How oft hereafter rising look for us To find new Pharmics — on old Valpo ' s Main. 192 qg BEpgr iEagE THE PHARMACEUTICAL CHEMIST. HUBERT H. FISCHER. HERE is doubtless no one subject that has given so much trend to the advancement of all the lines of progress as Chemistry. The professional engineer, the physician, the pharmacist and the manufacturer, would all be incalculably handicapped without the benefits of the knowledge of the chemist. The wide sweep in this science has made it necessary for Universi- ties and Colleges to specialize in definite branches of the subject, and while this may be true of all of the other professions, the conflict for higher ethics, and for protection of the public interest in the enforce- ment of the pure food laws has sounded the call to the chemist for help, — hence the curriculum of the pharmaceutical chemist. He is efficiently trained for industrial analytical work, and is well fitted to meet practical problems in the field of manufacturing interests. His course is especially designed to fit him for the work of the public analyst, since he not only is qualified to cope with the difficulties encountered in such service, but his knowledge of the therapeutics and toxicology of drugs used in the manufacture, adulteration and preserva- tion of foods, and in the wide range of patent medicines, makes him more capable to search for chemicals likely to be used in the food or medicines. His work is essentially an ethical one, inasmuch as it secures public protection. There is, however, no very definite standard among the various colleges for the Pharamaceutical Chemistry Course as there is for instance, in the case of the Graduate in the Pharmacy Course where most of the colleges endeavor to meet the demands of a syllabus. Some colleges do not provide for the full requirements of a graduate in pharmacy in the Chemistry Course but eliminate more or less of the pharmacy, and substitute analytical work. This may provide for more education than that acquired by the pharmacist, yet not sufficient to meet the pharmaceutical syllabus, and thus measures short in real training for the work of the Pharmaceutical Chemist. The course out- lined in the catalogue of the Valparaiso University demands that the 193 TESEH3EH-, INIVEOSITY student be a high school graduate or have an educational equivalent, 11 provides for two years of forty-eight full weeks each, which, in truth is equivalent to three years of regular college training. He must have all of the qualifications of a Graduate in Pharmacy, and while studying pharmacy simultaneously carries from one to two hours ' additional work daily. His work during the two summer months is heavier than that covered by the average college, and is largely a laboratory course. The Class of 1914 is the first to graduate in this course from the Valparaiso University. It consists of six members, and while the num- ber is comparatively small, interest in the work has by no means been lacking. 194 ' THERAPEUTICS OF RED SANDSTONE. ' ' GERALD H. STONER, ' 97. ME has been assigned a strange and difficult subject. To deliver an address to a body of scientific men and women upon an unknown topic seemed at first a great task. After some consideration it occurred to me that I had an opportun- ity to contribute something to the sum of Therapeutic knowl- edge so I began my investigations, the results of which I shall here relate. Since it was necessary that I should have laboratory facilities, assistant investigators, experimental animals to determine therapeutic effects, chemists and pharmacists at my disposal I established myself in the University laboratories, enlisted the co-operation of Prof. ' s Tim- mons and Wisner together with a staff of volunteers from the senior class and after preparations were thus complete our work began. Red Sandstone was found to be a mineral body, widely distributed and according to the Geologists consisting chiefly of " Grit. " The vir- tues of sandstone are therefore those of its chief ingredient and so we shall deal with this latter substance only during the remainder of this discourse. Grit is an exceedingly complex substance consisting of courage, resolution and activity; the exact formula for which has not yet been determined. It exists in the constitution of all men with fixity of pur- pose and determination to succeed in life, in quantity limited only by the capacity of the individual, and is distributed everywhere. It is a substance capable of cultivation and its effects are cumulative. It does not diminish with age or with use, each and every honest effort in life adds to its quantity and increases its effectiveness. Grit cannot be weighed or measured except by the standard of results produced by its effects. Its color is about that of good red blood, its taste resembles that of the fruits of successful achievement and its odor that of garlands of victory. Grit is an infectious agent, Close contact with an individual exhibiting its effects is almost sure to result in inoculation. The period of incubation is about thirty days or about long enough after gradua- 195 tion to enable a competent man to get a good job. Early symptoms of its effects are higher ideals of moral conduct, increased interest in the affairs of the business world, and a growing bank account. Grit increases the appetite for hard work, stimulates muscular activity, adds much to one ' s powers of endurance, and by constant friction sharpens dull wits. Grit is non-toxic, no outward effects have ever attended its use. It does not cause the head to swell or produce that form of irresolution usually known as " cold feet. " When injected into a jelly-fish it began to produce unmistakable evidences of the growth of a backbone, while the sloth after receiving a single dose exhibited such remarkable signs of activity that great hopes are entertained as to the development of a new race of beings who shall inherit this valuable asset as a natural congenital endowment. When applied externally grit produced no appreciable effect. Our conclusion was therefore that it must be absorbed directly into the system to be of value. Upon the Digestive system its effects were salutary since enfeebled spirts were enabled to crack hard nuts and digest knotty problems with apparent ease. The Pulse was quickened with the thrill of new life, the cyanosis of lethargy disappeared, and a flush of enthusiasm succeeded it. Weak nerve gave way immediately to determination and courage, the respiration was quickened, the brilliancy of new life and the tem- perature rose to the point of that of a live man full of surging energy. During the course of our investigations Prof. Timmons became accidentally inoculated and thereafter resisted all efforts at restraint. After many terrifying contortions he declared that the Valparaiso Col- lege of Pharmacy should immediately become and remain the model for all institutions of its kind. Prof. Wisner seemed inclined to view this new agent with con- tempt and defied its effects. A single dose, however, caused him to abandon his bicycle and take to his heels. Now he makes more speedy trips on foot than did Mercury with his winged sandals in the good old days of miracle. A general distribution of this drug among the mem- bers of the senior class caused them all to sit boldly upright during a lecture on drug classification and throughout an entire hour not a single man went to sleep. This agent was found to be incompatible with Alcohol and all beverages containing it. A very rapid disappearance of all its salutary 1% effects was also observed when associated with narcotics, gambling, late hours and in fact all forms of dissipation. Its action was increased by sobriety, industry, honesty, thoughtful- ness and all principles of virtuous conduct. This drug may be now obtained at all fountains of inspiration. The wise counsel of a good old mother and the knowledge of her con- stant watchfulness over her son ' s or daughter ' s career are among its early reliable sources. While the plaudits of friends who watch with anxious interest the efforts of one who is trying to " make good " serve ever to renew the potent draught should the way seem rough or the Spirit flag . — Therapeutics — This agent is worthy of a more thorough study. Its use is how- ever recommended in faint heart especially in that form known as " chicken-heart. " Excellent results have attended its use in the treatment of inde- cision due to lack of nerve. It is guaranteed to put strength into all resolution and to add energy to all efforts in carrying them into effect. For the treatment of " weak knees " it is a recognized specific. In that form of anaemia known as " blue-blood " it promises to prove of much value. In fact so many of our wealthy young men have felt its effects that America is no longer the land of the idle-rich. In the midst of our investigation the second bell for 6:30 class rang and our night of labor was over. We believe that we have just begun to learn the merits of this wonderful substance and hope that the near future will bring us oppor- tunity for more extended investigation. 197 CLASS OFFICERS.

NEED not hesitate to say that I think every music graduate of the class of 1914 will agree that we have had a splendid year, a year of hard work and of musical treats. The music class of 1914 was represented in all of the musical activities, and therefore I will speak of the history as that of the class instead of the students. Oh, how faithfully we went to practice regularly on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, to prepare the oratorios, " The Crusaders " and " The Legend of Don Munio, " and how well spent, we thought our time, when we heard what a success they were ! The operetta, ' ' Chimes of Normandy, " given by the opera class, was greatly appreciated, and we certainly felt that some of us could make a success of music. The oratorio, " The Legend of Don Munio, " was greatly enjoyed as the first number of the May Festival. The second number was a splendid con- cert by the pianist, Madame Von Unschuld. How we graduates in piano only hoped that some day we might be able to give a concert that would be as greatly appreciated as hers! The third number was a concert given by Charles W. Clark, baritone, and then we graduates in voice realized what a vast chasm of work we still had before us. The last two numbers were concerts by the Minneapolis Symphony Orches- tra. We certainly felt proud of Valparaiso University Conservatory when we were given such a treat as the May Festival. However, do not think that there was no work in our course, but remember, we had to practice three and four hours a day. Often some of us tried to evade these practice hours, but impossible, since every missed practice hour meant an excuse from the office and only three excuses were allowed in a term. Day after day the students in voice were obliged to sing in chapel, but of course that was enjoyable as " Pop " Kinsey would not have been able to deliver his famous lectures without the aid of the chapel choir. All went well in theory classes, for we knew that to graduate meant never to flunk in Harmony, History, Counterpoint or Composition. The few public and private recitals that were held throughout the year 205 ■:•:•; seemed just a stepping stone toward the goal for the student that took part, and we all know that in our graduating recitals, we were success- ful in proportion to the work we had done. Now we part, and whatever the future holds for us may we never forget the days we spent as students in the music department of Valpar- aiso University. 206 THE MUSIC MASTERS. LULU R. BA1LY. OME all who love old Music Hall, , And read what we have in this space, ' ! Of masters of music in ancient times And of those who have taken their place Space will not permit me to dwell On each artist of faculty and class ; A word for the grand old Masters Even if they, we surpass. There is Bach, Beethoven and Mozart, All, who were very great men, But, when looking for instructors in music To Schuldt, Nelson, Chaffee we send. These ge niuses I ' ve just mentioned, In piano always give you your share, But if looking for something in voice Roberts and Weaver are there. May praise be given to these so faithful Who have taught this victorious class; Equaled by few are these instructors Surely none can them surpass. We acknowledge we worry our teachers And perhaps those who are passing by, But listening to seventy-nine pianos Do you wonder you hear them sigh? Our worries and troubles are over Lessons, recitals and Harmony past; 207 TfaaaaBsr ggiEHsE May kind thoughts of Music Hall cling Like a loose flapping sail to a mast. When this class goes out in the world, A cry of victory will upward arise, For there are Paderewskie ' s among us On whom the world will look with surprise. May the Juniors have for their model The Music Masters of nineteen fourteen, And may they reach a successful goal As this illustrious class, we have seen. May success he in store for each senior When out in this wide world we go, And may troubles vanish before us As before the hunter the swift footed doe.

" — Hogg. IT WAS the year 1929. Previous to that time, I had been traveling throughout the United States and part of Europe, doing extensive lecture work, having a delightful time, well — in fact, enjoying life to its fullest extent. At this time, I had the great pleasure of being introduced into society by the President of France. It was certainly an opportunity not to let escape unnoticed, as I was to assist in various recitals which were to be given in the city of pleasure, the cradle of sunshine, gaiety, luxury and the paradise of pleasure-seekers, — Paris. One balmy summer evening, I was sitting in a beautiful Parisian Garden, the Garden of the Tuilleries, idly passing the moments away and curiously watching what seemed to me, strange figures flitting past. This was an evening never to be forgotten; gardens and parks were to be seen everywhere, and music floated among the trees; the boulevards, with currents of tumultuous life sweeping in all directions, even so much as confused and dazzled one, who gazed upon the scene. It was with extreme awe, that I gazed down one of these wonderful thoroughfares, realizing that I was look- ing upon a sight, entirely different from anything that I had ever seen before. While doing this, I noticed one of those funny little objects approaching me. Was it not strange that I had missed it before, and why did this being among all others attract my attention? I will tell you. As he came nearer and as I observed more closely, whom did I behold in him, but Grover C. Morris, an old friend and schoolmate of the dear old Valparaiso University. To say that I was overjoyed, would be putting it mildly, as he was the only one of the 210 dear " old pals, " I had seen since our parting in ' 14. I stared at him to see what a change fifteen years had made and instead of a clean shaven man, one with a stunning little mustache stood before me. Im- mediately, I was curious to know concerning the rest of the class and Mr. Morris, always more energetic than I, had traced each one up and stood ready to tell me all. " Mabel Priest, " he said, " has changed her name, and is now the wife of a wealthy brewer in Milwaukee. You remember what a great religious worker Mabel used to be. Her ideas have changed consider- ably. Marie Sailer, the little girl from Crete, Illinois, is one out of the class of whom we may be proud. She accepted a position with some great concert company in New York, and is this day receiving one thousand dollars a concert. Critics have said her ability is most won- derful. I have heard that Gertrude Knicely and Amee Washington have established a studio in Philadelphia, and at the present time rank first among the artists of the East. China painting is their specialty. Earl W. Taylor, the handsome, happy boy, has mastered musical knowledge so thoroughly that he has founded a great University at Berlin, Germany. He is a man of power in the musical world; his name is one to be respected. All of the girls have proved themselves worthy of any man ' s heart. You remember Isabel Boyd, the wonder of the ' 14 class and by far the brightest member? She is now Professor of Harmony in the Oberlin Conservatory of Music. Eva Pearl Bodine and Lulu Baily, two of the sweetest girls in our class, have become universally known for their musical talent. Mar- garet Abbenseth has become so attached to Gary, Indiana, that she mar- ried a prominent physician of that city and is now living on Broadway. Margaret has forgotten that such a thing as music ever existed. Mabel Edwards and Belle M. Barrow, have been doing missionary work in Southern Africa. They have traveled extensively, but are at present located in New York City, working in the slums. May Lane, still a bachelor girl, is noted throughout the country for her wonderful lectures on Woman ' s Suffrage. Now last but not least, little but mighty, comes our famous concert player, Alma Duford. I need not say that her reputation is established throughout the world. " 211 f 315 E EH E5y After a moment ' s hesitation, Mr. Morris suggested that we take a stroll, and at the same time admire a few of the many places of interest in this wonderful city. We had been walking perhaps ten minutes, when upon entering Worth ' s Tailoring Establishment, whom should we see but P. B. Quinn, another noted and brilliant pianist, who graduated in ' 14. It was very natural that he should be at this place, considering the fact that he had always been extremely particular about his attire. He, of course, was overjoyed at seeing us and immediately asked if we had seen the Hoot sisters, who had been copying famous masterpieces in the Louvre for several years and whom time had proved to be suc- cessful artists. Upon looking through the papers that evening Mr. Quinn had dis- covered an article telling of the great honor bestowed upon Grace Shan- non, who had been elected director of a conservatory in Venice and Ethel Pierce, who had been made her assistant. We then decided that we possibly could not afford to miss perhaps the greatest attraction of all Paris, consequently in a short time we arrived at the wonderful and magnificent Opera House. We had scarcely entered and been seated, when the performance commenced. Behold, Roy Harcourt, the star actor and singer, came out upon the stage to be applauded by the mighty throng. This having ended, Mr. Morris and I, though reluctant, were forced to separate, believing it had been by far the most enjoyable and profitable evening ever spent, this of bringing up recollections of fellow students and reminiscences of happy clays gone by at dear old Valparaiso University.

ETHEL GENEVA WOODBURY, East Windsor, Connecticut Clipping East Windsor Record — March 33, 1967. We stop our press to announce the death of our beloved actress and spinstress, Miss Ethel Woodbury. She left a fortune of $100,000.00. Fifty-three years ago she started with a finished education and 55 cents. Her accumulation of wealth is due to her frugality, temperance, good habits, keen insight into business and the fact that an uncle died and left her $99,999.00. LEONE EVANGELINE WOODBURY, She had a rustic woodland air, Her " disposish " was bad Her eyes were brown, so very brown Her beauty drove him mad. She also excels in debating.

HOWAED. fIXD is the one power, and the only power, that dominates and controls man. It is the one indestructible agency that sur- vives time. It cannot be weighed or measured. It out- reaches a million worlds. It is as limitless as the universe, and as boundless as eternity. In a mere instant we can turn the mind back to the beginning of human history. That is but yester- day. Beyond the age of man it can go with as much ease, — beyond the glacial period, beyond the age of mountains and hills, back a million years, before the grass grew in the valleys or the waters found their way to the sea. Circumscribed by neither time nor space, its dwelling place is eternity, and in a single moment of flight it can reach the most distant star, and then on, and on, and on. It builds every enterprise; accomplishes every purjjose. With such an instrument at his com- mand, with such an agency to use what can man not accomplish? What can he not achieve? Fellow class-mates, we are about to launch out into life ' s great sea. Undoubtedly, we will encounter storms of discouragement and opposi- tion, which will threaten sometimes to almost overwhelm. If we are going to make the voyage successfully, through it all, we will need a strong determination to succeed, and a deep-rooted faith in our ability to reach the desired goal. Think success, and you may be assured you will attain success. Think and anticipate failure and you will assuredly reap the bitter harvest, Do not be discouraged if at first you seem to fail. We must not expect to do great things all in a day. Thomas Edi- son invented the phonograph, but he could not get it to pronounce the letter " s. " He worked for over a year, from seventeen to twenty-four hours a day, to perfect that machine. He did it, and now it brings him over a million dollars a year. Cyrus Field crossed the Atlantic fifty-two times and worked eleven years to lay the cable, while the world mocked and said he was visionary. He laid it in Eighteen Hundred-Sixty- Eight, and it has never missed once from that day to this. A dreamer, but he won out. And so an aim may lie high, but there may not be powder enough to make the bullet pierce opposition. Battles are not won on dress 220 parade, but on the firing line. Some men will never be leaders because they lack courage. They are afraid to take a step in advance of the crowd. Remember at all times that you have in your possession the power that overcomes. Every man is of right a king, and need not be a slave, but every man is a slave whose habits hold him down. A man is more or less a slave who is not doing all he can, who has not developed the latent forces within. By the power of his mind, man is a success or a failure. Business growth is mind growth first. Business failure is mind failure first. Thought precedes action. The athlete takes great pains in training for the contest. If he didn ' t, he wouldn ' t expect to win. The average man is not succeeding as he should. He is sleeping on a gold mine. To develop the mind and the -personality is to put that gold in the bank. Right thinking is a business builder. It makes friends, forgives enemies and opens the way to deathless fame. Argue on the side you wish to carry. Insist that what should happen will happen, and see that it does. Right thinking unlocks the door to every achievement; it attracts the riches of the world from a supply that is inexhaustible. It produces health, happiness and fame. And so, as we go out from these halls that we have learned to love, out into the great wide world where we may never look upon eacti others ' faces again, let us ever keep our minds upon the great and splendid things we would like to do; and then, as the days go gliding by, we will find ourselves unconsciously seizing upon the opportunities that are required for the fulfillment of our desire, just as the coral insect takes from the running tide the elements it needs. Picture in your mind the able, earnest, useful person you desire to be, and the thought you hold will hourly transform you into that particular individual. Remember at all times, and never forget, that if we are to succeed. we must persevere. Alexander the Great was asked, " How did you conquer the world? " He replied, " By not wavering. " A plow-horse makes more miles in a year than the best thoroughbred horse on the race-track. Mr. Edison was asked, " Don ' t you believe that genius is inspiration? " " No, " he replied, " Genius is perspiration. " " Genius, that power which dazzles human eyes, Is oft but perseverence in disguise. " The little spring which issues from the mountain rock, by the accumulation of streamlets soon becomes a mighty river, and eventually part of the great, fathomless ocean, simply by pushing steadily and persistently onward. 221 f S j gTSg ilSli idds 1 CLASS HISTORY. MARY WILHELMINA O ' DONNELL. LlFORE the strength or ability of any person can be known, that person must in some manner or by some method be tested or tried. From the beginning of time this has been true. In olden times the Lord told Gideon to send back from his host the men who were ' ' fearful and afraid. ' ' After these men were sent back, Gideon chose for his followers, those who would drink by lapping the water. From the thousands of men in the host of Gideon, after this test there remained but three hundred. But these men proved able to perform effectively the task of overcoming the Midianites. The same has, and will be true throughout the History of the Elocution Class of 1914. There were some thirty or forty students entered the Elocution Department of Valparaiso University in 1913. Not Gideon, but Mr. Rieed, tested these Juniors and found that some of them were, " fearful and afraid, " for when called to the platform the girls have been known to gasp for breath. The boys have become so nervous that it looked as if a brisk wind were playing about the knees of their trousers. Not- withstanding this fact some have passed through the tests given by Mrs. Agar and Mr. Rieed when they were young in the work. They have undergone, also, the tests given by Mr. Tallcott. Now, there are ten; — three boys and seven girls who have proved able to overcome, not the Midianites of old but, the trials and tests of a two year ' s course in Expression work. Not all were trials and tests during the two years stay in Valpar- aiso. Many interesting and pleasant times were enjoyed by the mem- bers of the class and their friends. Marshmallow roasts and picnics have been enjoyed on the banks of Sager ' s Lake. Also socials at which the game of, " Hearts " was played: a game which evidently has been played in other places besides the socials in Old Crescent Hall, for in the two years time there have been several elopements from the Elocution Department, and some have not even taken the trouble to elope. Aside from the social functions, the depart- 222 ment has given in the Memorial Opera House a play entitled " Mr. Bob " ; as to the success of which we quote Mr. H. K. Brown, " It is the best play ever produced by the department. " In this play Eula Lee Tomlinson acted the part of Marion Bryant, who proved to lie the real " Mr. Bob. " And due to her work here she received the part of " Beatrice Carew " in " An American Citizen, " another play given in Memorial Opera House, the latter part of the year. Lindsay ttharp- nack was " Mr. Brown, " a clerk. He made a success in this play, so he played the part of " Egerton Brown " in, " An American Citizen. Rus- sell Wilson played as " Philip Royson, " a young yachtsman; and was given the part of " Sims, " a butler, in the following play. Adelaide Hinton acted very well the part of Rebecca Luke, " a maiden lady who was very fond of cats. In, " An American Citizen " she seemed happy to give up her cats and play the part of a mistress, " Lady Bunn. " In this play the two Hoosier girls, Beulah Bondy and Mary O ' Donnell, played the parts of " Georgia Chapin " and " Carola Chapin. " The lat- ter character, a maiden lady of fifty, who was said to have laid the dust with her tears, was taken by Mary O ' Donnell. Had the audience been asked as to how she played that part, they would probably have answered in one accord, " quite naturally. " Clara Rogers, the Tennessee girl, presented the part of a maid and William Howard, the man from Aus- tralia, was " Sir Humphrey Bunn, " an English gentleman. The Woodbury sisters, Ethel and Leone, from Connecticut, have shown their desire to give lectures in preference to miscellaneous pro- grams or readings. Miss Leone played the part of " Mercury " in " An American Citizen, " and Miss Ethel acted as a waitress. A part of the class was also very active in arranging our portion of the " Benefit Show " which consisted of a pantomime entitled " Sight Seeing in New York City, " in which they demonstrated their ability as vaudeville actors. The graduates from this department think as Cicero, " As the grace of man is in the mind, so the beauty of the mind is eloquence. " They also say with the poet, " Heaven is not reached by a single bound But we build the ladder by which we rise Prom the lowly earth to the vaulted skies, And we mount to its summit round by round. " •2-2:) Jn Stiff TnM The sincere desire of all is, that every member of the class mount the ladder of Success. Let anyone, or all, climb high on this ladder of fame, still there will be pleasant memories, of pride and joy as each one in years to come, thinks of the days spent in " Old Valpo.

L T T of the land we call the Golden AYest, From Sunny South and Pearly East, in quest Of knowledge; from the distant Orient lands. Afar across the desert ' s burning sands, O ' er briny waters deep and dark, they come; From fairest Italy ' s blue skies and some From England ' s proudest homes, from Emerald Isles, From sundry lands they travel many miles To reach this little Vale of Paradise, This home wherein for each some honor lies. As morn awakes among the dews and flowers, I seem to wander through the mossy bowers, In shades of " woody Ida ' s inmost grove, " Or idly pass some little nestling cove Along the margin of the trembling lake, The memories of which we all will take Unto the distant lands from which we came, To happy homes which gladly sing the fame We bring across the dreary waste of miles, Perfected then at last through Mother ' s smiles. A fleecy cloud seems lingering in the skies, Just where the forest ' s green horizon lies; Smooth, fertile fields and rolling pasture land, White, barren rocks and sunny wastes of sand, All greet my view as I lift up my eyes From meadows, fair unto the bright blue skies, And pray that God will his protection give And guide our work so that it long will live, And help humanity for many years Through joy and sorrow, laughter, smiles and tears. How bright, my classmates, is our guileless youth, Its hopes, illusions, aspirations, truth; How fair our soaring dreams of future days Which fill our spirits with their pure glad lays! But in these coming dreamed-of days of ours What memories throng of bygone, happy hours, What well-loved voices through the silence ring And like the poet so we too may sing, " What chronicles of triumph and defeat, Of struggle and temptation and retreat! What records of regrets and doubts and fears! What pages blotted, blistered by our tears! And holy images of love and trust Undimmed by age, unsoiled by damp or dust. ' ' We see the deep and rolling sea before Where pictured lie our dreams of youth; the shore Is fast receding from our view; we feel The ocean ' s pulsing throb along the keel; A breeze from o ' er the waters stirs our sails; All of our past into the shore-line pales. ( ) life that lies beyond, we feel the spray Of mist upon our brow! We cannot stay To linger longer in the harbor here For life ' s broad ocean depths are now so near. Our hearts would know the secret of the sea. Sail on, and learn its hidden mystery. Fresh let the breath of inspiration blow That guides our ship safe toward the eastern glow. Straight out across the waters deep we sail, Nor cherish fear of rents made by the gale, But let the winds, whate ' re they chance to be In this unknown tomorrow of the sea, Fill canvas till the straining sails we feel And lifting of the bounding, waking keel. Not toward the sunset glow, our oars we bend, To disappear in darkness at the end; 226 Straight toward the Light our motto e ' er shall be — That glowing orb beyond the restless sea Shall guide us into depths our spirits crave As farther still, the vaster depths we brave; Still on we follow, sure to meet the sun, And know full well that when the race is run That what the future yields will be the right, If we ourselves have kept our armor bright. Yet comrades, let us not at gain of day ( )ur well-earned rest accept and idly say Our work is done. But leave we unto men Such records as shall live beyond our ken. ye familiar scenes, like fading flowers, That now are ours and yet no longer ours, Ye walls that in seclusion and repose Our school life ' s dreams and hopes and fears enclose, Ye loved companions of our college days And teachers dear who led through learning ' s maze Our oft bewildered feet, we hesitate And fondly, sadly linger at the gate To kindly greet you one and all again, For conquest sweet is not unmixed with pain. school life ' s days, long loved, and classmates dear. We now must part and leave the harbor here! Our college mirth and trying lessons passed, The future waits with phantoms beckoning fast; And so with one exultant, joyous leap We sail into tomorrow ' s unknown deep. The rushing, seething, foaming waves dash high; The tide goes out, we now must say goodbye. We sail, as dim we see the future loom, With beating hearts, " Ex portu in altum. " THE UNIVERSAL AIM. ADELAIDE E. HINTON. FjjEHIND each conscious act there is a motive; beyond each act an object — an intent. Small acts are parts of larger plans and their puny aims point to a single, all embracing purpose. Each life holds such a purpose and is helpful and progressive, or harmful and pernicious accordingly as its leading purpose is worthy and ennobling or unworthy and degrading. These purposes so varied in their effect on personal character and in their influence on the race are after all merely the same idea working in different ways. Here an aviator is about to pierce the clouds in his frail machine; there an assassin is waiting for his victim; yonder a child is chasing a butterfly — a thief filching a purse — a student beginning his career: ask each of these what is his present mot ive and each will answer " to suc- ceed. ' ' No work however good or bad, important or trivial is ever begun without success in mind. Always the idea of a triumphant conclusion is there to spur on the toiler when circumstances are against him and to hasten his steps yet more when the path lies straight and clear before him. And what is success? Tell me first what is electricity that can make dead muscles throb with the semblance of life? What is gravity, that pulls without cord or cable ? What is time, that makes, modifies, and unmakes forms and substances without touching them? As these great invisible forces act upon the visible universe, so the spirit of success influences human character and conduct. It is like them too in that we cannot analyze or define it, but recognize it by its thrill and study it in its results. Success! the very word is an inspiration; a call to ambi- tion; an incentive to activity. Success! the aim of the individual; the guide-star of institutions; the ambition of nations; the goal of the human race. Success! to each ear it has a different sound and its forms are varied as the minds that receive it. To this man it means fame, that one seeks it in peaceful obscurity; another fancies it is wealth, yet others identify it with power, skill, scholarship. To the young it is a bright hued panoramic dream of the future which they and the years will make real. To the old it is a satisfying memory or a chaos of unrealized hopes and misdirected endeavors. In a narrow sense the limit of success is the mind of the individual. Accordingly he who does the thing that seems to him worth while adjudges himself successful. And so opposite are men ' s ideals and so contradictory their aims that what one acclaims as success another mourns as failure. This clashing of standards would paralyze progress and result in moral and intellectual anarchy without a higher criterion than mere personal opinions. No man can judge the measure of his own success, nor can any nation or any age. The future must judge the present as the present judges the past. Above all personal and relative standards is being evolved a more rational and constantly advancing absolute standard of success. This rises out of man ' s experience, his contemplations of the universe, and his earnest endeavor to find his own proper place in creation. It is the infallible key to the culture of any age; it is the gauge of our progress, the barometer of our civiliza- tion. He who intelligently measures his acts by this standard, cer- tainly uplifts mankind and fulfills in part at least the object of his existence. He whose success is greatest by this standard shall ulti- mately be greatest in the world ' s esteem. Such is the greatness of the men who are honored by all nations at all times. T the thoughtful of all ages success is not the mere realization of a personal end nor the passive enjoyment of something attained. For a prize once gained looses its value and he who is satisfied with his achievements never felt the thrill of a high purpose or caught the pass- ing vision of real success. There is more zest in the chase than in the capture of the quarry and the flaying of the carcass. The stag bound- ing from copse to covert, excites to fullest effort the deepest lungs and toughest sinews of rider, horse and hound; but its fallen carcass is carrion for crows and jackals. To succeed is to advance from day to day so that what was good and true yesterday shall be a part of us today; and what has only the seeming of truth and goodness today shall not deceive us tomorrow. To succeed is to labor heartily, enthusiastically in a worthy cause, to do work that is worth doing so well that it will not have to be done again. To live helpfully, hopefully and to die with a heart full of plans for yet greater and farther-reaching works. 230 No life completes the work on which it spends itself. The great movements of which our small effort is a part are carried over from age to age, epoch to epoch. These combining and re-combining form at last the onward flowing unfathomable stream — " The one increasing pur- pose, " which " through all the ages run " ; and the wavelets that dimple its swelling resistless tide are the lives of succesful men. 1 ■ , ■ ■ £. 99BB 7i 4fl Willi §l|5il ffiffifiPb § 231 r.Tifersr Trercra ii g :• :• -.t: . v:- ' ■ CLASS WILL. NOW ALL MEN BY THESE PRESENTS, That I, the Spirit Kof the Class of Nineteen Hundred Fourteen of the Public Speaking Department of Valparaiso University, City of Val- paraiso, County of Porter, State of Indiana, being of sound and disposing mind, do make, declare and publish this my last will and testament, and all former instruments drawn by me are hereby revoked. As by the grace of God, I have been allowed my allotted time and the full enjoyment thereof, and as my principles have been above reproach, 1 feel at full liberty to place some conditions on the several bequests enumerated herewith. We as a class give, devise and bequeath to our highly esteemed, though unsophisticated brothers and sisters, the Juniors, First: the privilege of becoming Seniors of the Elocution class after September Fifteenth, Nineteen Hundred-Fifteen. Second: our dear old Crescent Hall with all its modern conveniences, handsome decorations and excep- tionally fine ventilating capacity. Third: our beloved, unexcelled Dean — whom we have found to be a most interested and sympathetic advisor as well as an efficient and thorough instructor. We as a class do bequeath to Olivia Tobin the privilege of using Star Hall in which to practice her selections without intrusion. Lindsay Sharpnack leaves to Mr. Holmes his wonderful business capacity as a class editor, athletic manager, and competent guide in all Senior class celebrations. Russell Wilson leaves to Oscar Neinhoffer his quiet poise and unequaled dignity. Clara Rogers, our Sunny Southern girl, leaves her optimistic assur- ance to Anna Fidget; also to the girls of the Junior Class an article on " Moonlight Strolls, " written during the " cold " weather, " A. D. " Nineteen Bundred-Fourteen. Adelaide Hinton wishes to bequeath to Velda Smith her marvelous capacity for making hats; to Katherine Dawson her skill in successful 232 bluffing, and to Alfred Tiala a complete article on how to be successful in vaudeville performances. Eula Lee Tomlinson reluctantly leaves to Margaret Wills her well- cared for and constantly flourishing garden of " Sweet William. " She also bequeaths to Olive McAdoo the care of all new students who are likely to call during the year Nineteen Hundred-Fifteen. Leone Woodbury has a number of things which she wishes to leave. To Xell Muldrow her oratorical and debating abilities; to Velda Smith her seat at the Southwest (S. W.) corner of table No. 5, Lembke Dining Hall. To Eva Pearl Bodine the full possession of her portion of the post in Lembke Hall, together with all accessories, for the year Nine- teen Hundred-Fifteen. Miss O ' Donnell leaves her capacity of directing with gentle author- ity to the President, Mr. Murphy, that he may with his wisdom and care keep the flock of young Juniors safe from harm. Beulah Bondy divides equally among the girls of the Junior Class her radiant smiles, with which she so easily wins the hearts of all. Mr. Howard leaves to Mr. and Mrs. Mason a complete article on " How to be Happy, though Married. " The girls of the Senior Class leave to the Junior girls the most delightful hour spent with Mrs. Agar in physical culture and story- telling. The class as a whole leave to the Juniors a large bottle containing " Nerve Tonic " ; also some quieting powders which they have found beneficial. The girls of the Senior Class, because of their great appreciation to Mr. Dewing for his fine argument on Woman Suffrage, leave to him an honorary degree in debating so that he may be released from all work in the class. The boys of the class leave to Thomas Snow a complete article on " How to Thaw Out with Hot Air. " We as a class leave to our friends and co-workers, the Juniors, our life-long friendship and very best wishes for success in all their efforts. And we do hereby direct that our funeral services shall be con- ducted by our faithful guide, friend and adviser. Prof. Rollo A. Tall- cott. 233 IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, We have set our hand and seal, and publish and decree this to be our last will and testament, in the presence of the witnesses named below, this, the 19th day of June, in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and fourteen.

ADMISSION 15c. 241 %m HISTORY OF THE STAFF. Being a true account of the experiences of the Bored of Managers and Editors in getting out this present work. In the year of our Lord, nineteen hundred-fourteen, in the Time of Smart-weed Blossom, the different classes met in secret session to elect tlieir managers and editors. The Classics had two nominations: one, of the tribe of ancient Saxons, a Herr Johann Behnke was first nomi- nated. Opposing him was a Mr. Lochowitz (pronounced by sneezing) from the sunny shores of Siberia. Although Herr Behnke was short of stature, he had a long tongue and the class decided he could stand the " cussings " due him as well as any, and he was given the place. The edi- tor was (and by the way still is) a typical office-cat. With " spectacle on nose and pouch on side, his youthful hose well saved, a world too wide for his shrunk shank " he was well fitted for the honor that was destined to be his. His black piercing eyes, his massy waving hair, his full rich voice, and serene dignity, made up an ideal combination for the Chair of the Chief which he was soon to grace. The Scientifics had a similar experience. Two nominations were made for the editorship: Adolphus Abrahamus Barrabus Goldberg and Maim Conroy. Maim received 38 votes and Goldberg received 41 V£. The half vote is accounted for by the fact that our Girlie Jones voted for the Jew. Goodwin and Bradley were nominated for the managership and both made speeches of protest in an effort to advertise themselves. Both said they would positively have nothing to do with the job; and immediately upon being elected, Bradley, smiling like a boob, jumped to his feet and thanked the Class. The Educationals elected Mr. D. B. B. 0. K. Johnson for their manager, a very pret-y and nice man who might be described by quot- ing from one Mr. Shakespeare— " Yond Cassius hath a lean and hungry look; he thinks too much and looks quite into the affairs of men. Sel- dom he smiles but when he does, gee! it ' s a a pret-y smile. " This fits the case except for the fact that no one would ever accuse Johnson of thinking. Goshorn blossomed like a rose as their editor until the Chiefship went to Ellis. Then Goshorn ' s friends appealed to Ellis to have said Goshorn appointed assistant Office-Cat, But when Ellis named Sharpnaek for the much coveted position Goshorn took to the tall timber and hasn ' t been seen since. 246 mw-mm JNIVEUSITY «if V W 1 1 ___- V t vAu % chief J tj The Elocution Class elected one gentleman and a Mr. Sharpnack for their manager and editor respectively. These little fellows got two choice pieces of the " pie. " Mr. Wilson was made Treasurer, but the money was left with Bradley and Johnson until Wilson had filed a one hundred thousand dollar bond with the Lorimer Bank of Chicago. Af- terwards a motion was passed to the effect that the Secretary and Man- ager should accompany the Treasurer on the cashing of all checks. The Class was further honored by making Sharpnack, the Assistant Office- Cat, Chief Janitor. The least we say about him the better. But we must hasten. Florence was elected to record Behnke ' s amendments while Pawl Mather, a second Cotton Mather, was elected Staff Artist. And with Wadelle, Larson, Quigley, Knicely, Cutting, McFar ' ane, Baily, and Jones, the fun began. It was a motley sight. They first met in the South Office but were later transferred to the gymnasium where they would do less harm to the furniture. The Lawyers were in good and strong (vocally) but when they found out first — that they didn ' t get the Manager-in-Chiefship and second, — that they would have to pay for their Annuals, they stammered, stuttered, wilted, and faded away. Being a cheap bunch, they got Beam to take a group-picture of their class for a souvenir. When it came to naming the Annual, the talent, the genius, the eloquence of the Bored was brought forth in great array. Pawl Mather hatched a vague notion that the name should include the idea of our principal punishment, and Adolphus framed the wording. A joint 247 meeting was held. Chief Brady took on his wisest and sternest look. The air was charged and the feeling was intense. Seven people jumped to the floor for recognition when the meeting was opened for business. Goldberg proposed the name " Potato Chips " and supported his claims with an eloquent speech on the democracy of the University, its humil- ity, and its simplicity. Pawl supported this idea, showing " as how " it would give him great artistic possibilities. Ellis, Sharpnack, and others voiced the same opinion. Other nominations were called for and Goshorn suggested the name " Spuds " but it lost for want of a second. Miss Baily finally secured the floor and made a strong plea for " Tuber-culosis. " She advocated her claim with magna voce et binis lateribus (the Latin is inserted to show you we know a heap: then it lends dignity to a historic work of this kind). " Prunes " were then served but there was a sudden hush when D. B. R. 0. K. Johnson cleared his throat for its lost chord. " And placing one hand on his smooth-shaven chin, He pushed back his chair and arose to begin. Then fixing his eyes on the ceiling o ' er head, He paused for a time thinking what should be said. " He contended that the name " Potato Chips " was not a pret-y name, and that we should choose something more dignified, like " Superbus Verborum " or " De Sentence Cute. " But the opposition was too great for him and the name " Potato Chips " was chosen by an overwhelming majority. Pawl flung his old hat to the ceiling, did the Highland Fling, while the Jew rattled his shekels in sheer joy, and Behnke 248 T§B SH ?1 foamed at the mouth and muttered incoherent German phrases. And so ended the first chapter. Chapter two. Johnson, Steger, Wedelle, and Behnke got together, and having the tools, the engines, and hot air, began to move things. . . .yea verily they began to move heaven and earth, especially earth. By the next day they had adopted strenuous resolutions that would have made old George the Third look like a " Heinz " pickle. They called it a " Bill of we won ' ts and you musts. " But by the time of the next meeting, remorse had set in and they had become ashamed of them. The Manual Training Manager left hers at home and the Educational manager read his only by request. Chief Brady was peeved. His ugly mug wrinkled with contortions. He waxed eloquent (in his own mind) and told them he had slung hash, waited tables, hoed cabbage, driven hogs, and that he was proud of " this here " old school, of its dirty old buildings, and that he wouldn ' t eat ham and eggs if he were offered some (he lied); that he always boasted of his Alma Mater when away in the harvest fields in August. But he suddenly forgot his speech, turned white, and sat down. Pawl took up the refrain by trying to say what he thought. But due to the fact that there were ladies present, he was greatly handicapped in his choice of words. However, he gave his speech to the reporters later in the evening and you will find a part of it translated elsewhere in this book. But the brave, plucky minority held trumps. They threatened to withdraw. The vociferous majority bowed smiled politely, and 249 aB EHEBT liaBHeE moved to rescind the motion, naming the Annual. It was a glorious victory and the smile that Wadelle took on hasn ' t come off yet. But we mentioned a moment ago that remorse had set in, and that Johnson read his resolutions only by request. This remorse was not altogether true Gospel repentance. There were mysterious hints that B. F. was looming strong for the dedication and that the fuss made by the Educationals made their claims look like Mexican money. Johnson saw the folly of reading his resolutions and told his class what it would cost them in an effort to have them retract. But their fore-sight was not as long as their hind-sigh as you will presently see. The job was all framed up. Motor Cycle Bill was waiting at the end of a telephone wire. Chief Brady left the room on a pretense of looking up past rec- ords of dedications, but in reality he ' phoned Wilson to come with all speed. Wilson turned his old one-lunged Excelsior loose and arrived just in time to cast the deciding vote, and B. F. ' s name was immortal- ized. And so ended chapter two. Chapter three: Behnke was sent to Chicago to solicit advertising, but got lost in the Boston Store and was finally thrown out on his head. He came home. Then I). B. R. 0. K. Johnson tried HIS luck but spent his money in the ten cent store and didn ' t get a red penny. He said he didn ' t want Chicago money and that he didn ' t try very hard. Then the Bored turned them loose on the Valparaiso merchants, tailors, and soda-fountain men. The money began to flow in, subscriptions for the Record were paid up and immediately the Bored got dignified. They rented an editorial room, type-writers, and had letter heads printed. They started a genuine bluff that they called " campaign week. " They told the students that after Wednesday, June the 24th, no sales of the Record would be made. They had to have ten thousand dollars and by five o ' clock Wednesday they had only three hundred thirty-eight and the expense sheet showed a grand total of seven hundred fifty-four. It looked as though the bluff was a failure and that somebody would have to renig. But by five-thirty the scene had changed. Wilson appointed seven assistants to help him receive the money. The streets were full of anxious people trying to buy a Record. Promptly at six Bradley let fall the gavel, the doors were locked, and the Valparaiso Fire Depart- ment was called to clear the streets while the money was carefully counted. When Mr. Wilson wiped the perspiration from his noble brow and arose from his chair, his handsome face was beaming with satisfac- 250 tion. He had taken in exactly thirteen thousand, seven hundred seven- ty-seven dollars and thirteen cents. Now that the money was in the editors got busy. Ellis rolled up his sleeves, spat on his hands, and began operations (especially on dope). There is a special article in this book on " Rejected Articles " ; please see it. The first hitch was when the managers undertook to proof read the editors manuscripts. The} ' were given distinctly to understand that they (the editors) could handle the job. Bradley was called in on the green carpet and asked to make a statement. He was very brave at first but when he saw the situation, he became very hum- ble and before long the editors had him eating out of their hands. For the rest of the term he served as errand boy. And so ended chapter three. Chapter four: Then came the rush on the editors. Poets, philosophers, ex-edit- ors, authors, and celebrities galore sprang up like dog-fennel in a fence corner. Strange, wierd, mystic poems (?) in unknown meters; epic poems in cantos; lyric poems with deep dark meanings; dramatic mas- terpieces with vidians; " tragedy, comedy, history, pastoral, pastoral- comical, historical-pastoral, tragical-historical, tragical-comical-histori- cal-pastoral " ; also pectoral, gutteral, nazal; nazal-pectoral, pectoral- nazal, pectoral-gutteral-nazal; " scene undivided, poem unlimited " ; came pouring to the editors desk. They were excellent, superb, sublime! The only reason for not publishing them was because of a lack of room. We are tempted to mention the title of one, " Hunches of a Happy Hebrew " in Nine Cantos by Kline, but we will not do so. The next scene shifts to the Music Faculty who undertook to pub- lish an annual in conjunction with this one. Mr. Sharpnack (we often call him " Mr. " now) was dispatched to handle them and a record of their deliberations would serve as a libretto for a dashing musical com- edy. He refused to affiliate with them and told them to get out an annual of their own. This they refused to do and insisted on their write-ups being changed. They maintained they were not well writ. Mr. Sharpnack informed them if they said they were not well writ, they were mistaken. This was called the Retort Courteous. When again they said they were not well writ, he told them they were evi- dently mis-informed. This was called The Quip Midest. When again they claimed they were not well well writ, he told them they were off their " nut " and for them to let him alone. This was called The Reply 251 Churlish. And so the Reproof Valiant, Countercheck Quarrelsome, Lie Circumstantial, to the Lie Direct? He durst go no further than the Lie Circumstantial and they durst not undertake their annual so they appealed to 0. P. K. Time passed on. Time has a habit of doing that, What else can it do? It can ' t stand still. But we must not discuss that here. We could if we wished to. We don ' t wish to. The work was finished as you see it. It is acknowledged (by the editors— Ellis and Sharpnack, especially) that it is by far the best magazine ever published. Notice its harmony. (We will now use a few exclamation points as we near the end) ! Notice the careful consideration of people ' s feelings! Notice that when the truth is painful with what skill it is polished! Notice that look of wisdom on each Senior ' s mug! Notice the borrowed dress suits! Notice our line-up of profs. See that look of divine excellence? You won ' t find a drove of profs like ours in all Porter County! Pu xd the class histories. Memorize the class prophecies. Frame and ha up in your rooms the personal write-ups. And now we close. How sad to end such a glorious work. In the words of Mr. Bullock " We hate to do it. " And so we will close with that famous little piece of a ditty by Mr. Grav, — " The path of glory is Hell.

Lawvers — 1 The Six-Game Schedule was an experiment of Xineteen-thirteen and the results of this season will establish it permanently in our base- ball circles. For the first time in the history of the University League did a team other than the Engineers or Seientifics carry off the honors of the season. But the reason that neither of the other two teams ever won it before was not due to inferior baseball. More than once did the Pharmics-Medics or Lawyers jump into the lead and make strong bids for the pennant only to drop out at the end of the Spring Term--the close of their School Year — and leave it to the Engineers and Seientifics to finish the ten or twelve game-schedule during the Summer Term. Hence the Pharmics-Medics or Lawyers never had a chance previous to the present arrangement. The Pennant Winners of Nineteen-fourteen not only surprised the fandom by copping the flag but also established a record by winning all their games. They opened the season with a decided victory over last year ' s champions who still were considered the best team in the League. This was somewhat of a surprise to all. However the Engineers ' root- ers still maintained that their team was the best and that they would e ventually be on top. A great deal of enthusiasm was gradually worked up by the supporters of these two teams and their next clash was looked forward to as the game of the season. The present champions won their next two games from the Lawyers and Seientifics, and so did the Engi- neers. Tins intensified the spirits of the opposing teams. They finally clashed and thrilling indeed was the battle. It was a " won in the ninth " affair and one of the best games ever witnessed at University Park. The defenders of the Blue and the Gold got the best of the 1 to argument and practically clinched the pennant of 1914. The Engineers made a desperate fight to retain the honors which they held for the past two years, but had to content themselves with scond place for which the Lawyers tied them. The test was decided by an extra game and the Black and Orange were victorious. The many-times champions had a good aggregation of real ball- players but they Inched that which was the winning factor of the lead- ers, namely, good team work and aggressiveness. After shutting out the Seientifics on the opening day the Lawyers were full of pennant aspirations. However their hopes were shattered the following Saturday when they were handed a double-defeat by the Pharmics-Medics and Engineers, yet they fought desperately. In two 262 m VAL PAQAIS mmP m JUNIVEQSITV of the three games that they won they came from behind and turned apparent defeat into victory. Our heart goes out to the Scientific , for the figures do them injus- tice. They deserve more credit than they received throughout the sea- son. Most of the games they have lost by one run. It is their efforts and not their accomplishments that are worthy of mention. As a whole, the season was a great success. It has developed its stars and bared the ivory skulls. Among the many surprises of the season, Tom Benton was the biggest. He showed a wonderful improve- ment over last year in his general baseball ability and his pitching was superb. He averaged ten strike-outs per game which is more than many of our big leagues can boast. The fleet-footed Walterhouse did not live up to the expectations of his admirers. Although he stole more bases and did more for his ' team than any other player in the league yet his general showing was a little below that of last year. Managers Deeds, Paine, Reeves and Stoddard are few of the many noteworthy, who have given their time and untiring efforts to help make the season a success. 26:; To The he tor Selon;? The. S o I I Hatched April 11 th THE TRACK. NEW epoch was begun in Valparaiso University ' s athletic his- tory when permission was obtained from the office authorities and work was definitely planned for the building of the new cinder track at the ball park. The carrying forward of this work was left to the Track Athletic Association, consisting of two members from each of the five groups which were to finally enter the contest, two members from the V. M. C. A., and a member chosen from the faculty. This association proceeded with the work of grading and prepari ng the track bed, and quite a little was accomplished by the aid of some students who gave half a day of their time to shoveling dirt in the process of grading. In the meantime, however, another athletic association had sprung into existence; its springing happened something like this — the different classes in a period of over-ambitiousness were indulging in various methods of expressing said same fact, when they received an invitation from the city authorities and from Mr. Heineman of the Memorial Opera House to meet with them in consultation. The result was that the several representatives sent by the different classes formed them- selves into a permanent association and accepted Mr. Heineman s offer of the Opera House to be used in giving a home talent show for the benefit of athletics. The show consisted of seven acts arranged by the different departments and was very successful in so far as more than four hundred dollars were taken in. This newly formed " Valparaiso University Athletic Association " took this money in charge and later graciously voted to use it in assist- ing the track association in completing their track and in building a new club-house in the park which, as they reasoned, could be used by both the track and baseball teams and also by the tennis players. The completion of the track was financed from now on by the new associa- tion, and their money was handled so wisely that they also succeeded in building the club-house. Mr. Brown (H. K.) now did his part in furnishing the cinders and Valparaiso University can at present boast of one of the very best quarter-mile cinder tracks in northern Indiana. While all this construction work was being carried on the teams from the different groups were being rounded into condition by different 2( : methods and with different degrees of thoroughness and enthusiasm until May ninth, the time set for the Meet, arrived and considerably over a thousand students were assembled to watch the contest. It soon became evident to everyone present that the honors of the Meet lay between the Engineers and the Scientifics. The Scientifics won on the track by a lead of five points, but were beaten in the field events more than sufficient to offset this lead. Much enthusiasm was shown by the student body through the whole Meet and the enthusiasm came to its highest point during the relay race when the Scientific team was winning by an exceptionally large margin. The points were counted for the different teams by the method of five for first place, three for second and one for third. The final score stood: Engineers 57 points, Scientifics 51 points, Pharmics-Medics 15 points, Commercials and Manual Training 12 points, and Lawyers 9 points. The Engineers as the winning team will receive the pennant.

With this start it is hoped and scarcely doubted that track athletics will soon hold their deserved place in the athletic activities of Valpar- aiso University, and it is the wish of the association for this, the initia- tory year, that the track activities may be carried on after the purpose set forth in the opening paragraph of our constitution, " to promote and control track athletics — to the best interests of the greatest number of students.

It was organized by Sir Geo. Williams in Lon- don seventy years ago. Eleven years after its organization, a World Conference was held at Paris and the following declaration was adopted: The Young Men ' s Christian Association seeks to unite those young men who, regarding Jesus Christ as their God and Saviour, according to the Holy Scriptures, desire to be His disciples in their doctrine and in their life and to associate their efforts for the extension of His king- dom among young men. LOCAL WORK. The past year has been one of growth for our local branch. Over 750 men of the University were affiliated with the organization. A brief summary of the branches of work follows: MEETINGS are held with the best men available for speakers on Life Work Problems, Social Questions, and Sex Education; and at De- votional Services. VOLUNTARY COURSES in Bible and Mission Study and Social Problems, led by Professors and students, are offered. OUR BUILDING places a Reading Room, Social Room, Gymnasium and Shower Baths at the service of the men. GYMNASIUM ' CLASSES are conducted and SOCIALS are held, for the men. EMPLOYMENT is obtained for worthy students, 500 jobs, big and little, having been given out. SERVICE, willing and unselfish, is fostered by getting men to lead Gym classes, Boys ' Clubs, and Bible Groups; and to render many other forms of help. This is the second year the Association has had a full time Secretary. LOCAL OFFICERS. Board of Trustees— Prof. 0. P. Kinsey; Prof. W. F. Ellis; Prof. M. L. Weems. Board of Directors— Prof. M. J.

Upon investigation it was discovered that Strickland had been pivoting his ears, like Wordsworth ' s sonnetted ass, somewhere in the back corner of the office while a committee was interviewing Mr. Kinsey concerning the Scientific Class Banquet. Mr. Strickland was treated very courteously and instructed to inform his friends that he was a — (mistaken). We give Mr. Strickland special mention in this department. Upon due consideration it is deemed proper to mention Mr. John (Josliorn here. He turned in all of his departmental work without hav- ing it typewritten, and much of it without punctuation. I). B. Pi. () . K. Johnson is placed here " by request. " Behnke accuses him of not having been worth a darn as assistant advertising manager. John Behnke is also placed here " by request. " Johnson claims that he was elected chairman of the committee of two, and that he didn ' t work because Behnke always found out where he intended to solicit advertising and then beat him to it. We congratulate them both upon their success in Chicago. There was a tie vote taken in regard to placing certain of the Music Faculty under this department. Mr. Morris interceded for them so they will not be mentioned. We mention Earle Wallell here. He hung around the editing room when we were busy with the small hope of discharging his duty by " waddling " an occasional manuscript or sheet of proof from the Edit- ing room to the printer or vice versa. 276 ' -g gMi rjiiiiigwa gyfiiB A. E. French is given mention. He loafed in the Editing room the morning this book went to press with no apparent motive except inquisi- tiveness. Space is given to Adolphns Goldberg. He simply could not absorb our method of proof reading. There are others who belong here or who seek popularity by men- tion here but we haven ' t space in this department for everybody. We aim to mention only the more important boobs. We wish to apologize to, and to compliment tbose who are able to appreciate these jokes without an explanation, but due to their recent- ness, subtleness, and originality and due to our inability to relate them other than as they were related to us, we fear that they will be beyond the comprehension of one not especially gifted in the art of humor. We therefore, in view of the fact that we wish to have our efforts thoroughly enjoye d by all, offer an explanation for some of these. On the sixteenth day of June in the year of Our Lord nineteen bundred-fourteen, Professor Mason L. Weems, professor of physiology and botany, related to the students of his University physiology class the following story: " Pat and Mike, having become discouraged in their futile attempts to escape from the mosquitoes, had retired to a secluded spot and cov- ered their heads with a blanket. Pat happened to look out and see a firefly approaching. He turned to Mike and exclaimed: " Faith, Mike, and it ' s no use — they ' re comin ' after us with lanterns. " EXPLANATION: One should laugh just at the end of the story. This is an Irish story, Pat and Mike are the proper names to use in relating an Irish joke or story. When these two poor fellows, (Pat and Mike, as mentioned above), had retired to the said secluded spot and covered their heads with the blankets they naturally expected no further annoyance from any kind of mosquitoes. Imagine their dismay when they saw this monstrous firefly bearing down upon them like Diogenese of old. Pat ' s speech is in Irish dialect. (Any kind of dialect is always funny and appropriate.) Irishmen are noted for their wit. Any one desiring a more thorough understanding of this joke may find a detailed discussion of the Pholuri spyralis, or commonly called the fire fly, on page 97, Vol. 9, of the Encycleopedia Brittanica. Joke number two: A youngster of nine attending school away from home, wrote in a 277 INIVEUSITY letter to his sister: " We had a spelling match in school today and I spelled all the hoys down and won the Meddle. " EXPLANATION: To get this joke one must understand that the correct spelling for the last word is " medal " and not " meddle. " One would suppose that a hoy so proficient in orthography would he ahle to spell the name of the reward given him. Three times: The following story was related by George W. Neet, dean of the department of Pedagogy. Several reports have been received in regard to the time and place in which he related it, but we will not attempt to decide which report or reports are correct. A gentleman was riding along the road in Arkansas when he saw a large woman violently threshing a comparatively innocent looking small man. The traveling gentleman lent his presence and persuasive power in stopping the proceedings, but his actions did not meet with the approval of even the small man. After things had quieted down considerably the little man said to the stranger: " You shouldn ' t have interfered, it doesn ' t hurt me so very much and it gives Mary Jane so much pleasure. " EXPLANATION: The plot of this story is laid in Arkansas- pronounced (Arken ' -saw) just for local coloring — Ask Miss Baldwin what that means — , or still better because every story worth while has to happen somewhere, so why not there as well as Indiana. Most per- sons, however, are partial to Arkansas or Kansas or some other state in the union. The woman was larger than the man, of course she was, otherwise she would not have been able to beat him up. There was a — a — a — Oh, hang it! We want the next word to begin with the letter " h " but the printer ' s devil just fed it to the parrot so we will have to put. Just a post script P. s.— minute. Turn tl Good Night. lights back on. We want to write a If you don ' t li llli jh at these stories at the points where it seems you should laugh, don ' t be alarmed or take poison, just have patience, you ' ll learn in time. 278 pVtC£-TO -the: _L,cW£-crOME All questions pertaining to Love, Matrimony, and Divorce answered.

But there were a few offers receiv- ed which, all things being considered, could not be accepted. In recognition of the offerers we mention a few of these. Grover C. Morris, of the Music department, offered his services as chief adviser to the editing staff. Although his services were perhaps needed he did not present himself in a way that favored his acceptance. Mr. Hilton Goodwin presented an article entitled: " Witty and Valuable Sayings of Daddy Weems. " We fully intended to publish this but Prof. Weems stole Goodwin ' s copy and had it copyrighted; and then tried to sell it to us. We refused to allow him any graft. (As a rule we refuse to be doped.) We rejected the lawyers. Mr. 0. C. Van Camp asked us to publish his debate upon the ques- tion: " Resolved, that the Immortality of the Soul should be compulsory in the common schools. " The speech had great oratorical possibilities but the system of exponents was wrong and it had the fallacy of " Beg- ging the Question. " Mayme Conroy brought forth an article entitled " Why Mary chewed the gum again. " She had gone into too delicate details. Professor Rola Anson Talcott had Leone Woodbury present his arti- cle entitled: " Upward and Onward " in which he gave a detailed account of how he had risen from a Professor to a remarkably inefficient chauffeur. The article also contained a detailed description of his latest scheme for buying up all the deserted coal mines and gas wells of Pennsylvania and West Virginia, to be utilized in the manufacture of button holes, the odd sizes to be used for holes in doughnuts. We refused this for fear of the influence it might exert upon the under- graduates. Adolph Goldberg presented " An Autobiography of Oliver P. Kin- sey. " (We offer no remarks.) Mary O ' Donnell asked us to publish a short story of f39 chapters. The story had a local coloring of bridge plans, drawing instruments, and Engineering details. We refused to publish it for fear that the hero of the story might be identified. Professor Benjamin Franklin Williams offered an article explain- ing how lie could tell whence his students came if he could " get them in an early stage. " The article won our approval but since we had explained to the Music department that this was to be a student ' s pro- duction we had to refuse this article. Mr. Goshorn tried to run in an article entitled: " The Truth about the Editing Board. " It was true all right but well — darn it — we didn ' t want to publish it. We were forced to reject the name " Potato Chips. " The managers, contending that they should have the power to " Oversee all publications " have rejected the following as not being in harmony with the policy of the school and pernicious and detrimental to the welfare of the Record. Dormitories is a place fur girls to make fudge and climb fire escapes. RULES. 1.

And Pa sayeth unto them, which of ye shall have a friend and shall go unto him on a Friday evening and say unto him, friend, get me a date; 6. For a girl of mine hath, in h?r anger, canned me and I now have no date. 7. And he that hath a date shall answer and say, trouble me not, all girls now have dates and my girl waits for me, I cannot fool with thee. 8.

If a newcomer shall ask a sugges- tion from any of you would you get him a " hen, " or if he asketh for assistance in getting a date would you give him the cold shoulder? 12. Or if he asketh for a cigarette would you give him " makings " ? 14. If ye, being young, know how to give these good things unto your friends, how much more shall your father, who feed- eth the great multitudes, be able to give unto you that asketh him.

VALPARAISO UNIVERSnY (Accredited) VALPARAISO, INDIANA Founded 1873 29 Departments 209 Instructors and an annual enrollment last year ol more than 5000 Different St udents Exc ellent Equipments When the University was founded it had but one ob- ject in view, that of giving to every person, whether rich or poor, the opportunity of obtaining a thorough practical education at an expense within his means.
