Text from Pages 1 - 186 of the 1922 volume:

I 1 flRCQ [{ Life Let me but live my life from year to year. With forward face and unreluctant soul; Not hurrying to, nor turning from, the goal; Not mourning for the things that disappear In the dim past, nor holding hack in fear From what the future veils; but with a whole And happy heart, that pays its toll To Youth and Age and travels on with cheer. So let the way wind up the hill or down. O ' er rough or smooth, the journey will be joy: Still seeking what I sought when hut a boy, New friendship, high adventure, and a crown. My heart will keep the courage of the quest. And hope the road ' s last turn will be the best. — Henry Van Dyke THE AKGO Volume Seventeen WESTMINSTER COLLEGE ANNUAL Published by the Class of Nineteen Twenty-Two — ' A estminster College New Wilmington, Pennsylvania Nineteen Hundred and Twenty-One U flRCQ To OUR Friend and Class Advisor; a man whom we HIGHLY ESTEEM AND ADMIRE, ' TO JOHN ABRAM SHOTT, THIS ArGO is respectfully DEDICATED BY THE Class of Nineteen Hundred Twenty-two.

Butler Assistant Anna Grace Sowash- Business Manager Sherwin M. Wylie Assistant J. Russell Clementz Advertising Mgr. J. Lumen Popp (7 Seven u flREQ Foreword The purpose of this Argo, as we have seen it, is to reproduce a year of college life at Westminster. We have endeavored to present a " Memory Book, " relating and portraving the activities of a student body. Our chief aim has been to make this book representative, not of a class or a certain group, but of the school. If we have failed in this, " our only defense is the simple request that you judge us by motive, not deed. " Such a book as an annual depends for its success not onl ' upon the untiring labor of the Staff and the Class which publishes it, but upon the hearty co-operation and unselfish support of the student body. It is the product of the school and if we hope to share in the pleasure of its final completion, we must have a share in the making of it. The work of publishing an annual is great; but the drudgery is made enjoy- able, and we feel repaid for the toil, by the hope that every student may find within its covers sufficient compensation for all it has cost. To the Class of ' 22 and their friends, to the Faculty and the student body, to the Alumni, the Board of l ustees of Westminster, and all those who are interested in and are hoping for a Greater Westminster, we submit to _ ' ou this seventeenth olume of the annual Argo. — The Editor. v m Hillside Room m Seventeen flRCQ u Charles Freeman, Ph.D. Dean and Professor of Cbemi:try It is hard to confine to so small a space what we would write in praise of our es- teemed instructor and friend, Dr. Freeman. As a teacher he compels our admiration for the clear, vivid and fascinating manner in which he presents his subjects. He is one of the warmest personal friends and earnest ad- visors of the students. He seeks to be a companion to every one, and in meeti ig him on the campus ou cannot help but feel the warmth of his genial smile and cheerful greeting. May he know that he always has with him the warm admiration and best wishes of the students. Mrs. Alice Strobridce Dean of Women The education of the girls at the Hill- side would be incomplete, were it not for the helpful care and wise supervision of our dean. Mrs. Strobridge has been a mother to all of us for the past two and a half years. She always thinks of our welfare and she does nothing without careful consideration of its outcome. Howeser, we do not always realize that she is doing her best for us, especially when we see the reflection of her candle coming down the hall; when we forget to " sign up, " when we get boisterous when the boys are downstairs; when we " filter " in the dining room or when we wind the Victrola like a watch. But when all is said and done, She is just the only one Who can be to us a mother, So you see, we want no other. Tweoty six n (7 flRCQ Miss Louise Grant Professor of Voice and Public School Music From the bleak New England shores to the busy metropolis of New Wilmington came Miss Grant. She says that she came here to seek her fortune, but from what we have learned we believe that her stay with us is limited. Miss Grant left her heart in Boston and we well know that no one can well exist without that vital organ. At the beginning of the year she took up her work as teacher of voice and public school music in the conservatory. After Christmas vacation she succeed- ed Miss Cunningham as chaperon of the Cummings House. She at once gained the respect and love of those under her charge and manages her eight girls with the tact and skill of one who thoroughly under- stands her task. Miss Naomi Williams, B.L.I. Director of Pageantry and Assistant in Public Speaking Four ears ago when the present Senior Class were Freshmen there appeared in Westminster a young lady who was very much interested in Public Speak- ing. Not being very well pleased with the Honorable II. S. Hollopeter, she only stayed a month. Now she is back at Westminster again after courses in Slippery Rock and Emerson College of Oratory. Miss Williams caught the old Westminster Spirit when she first came and she has never lost it. She is pepp -, energetic and willing to do ' most anything you ask her to do. Her students will tell you you can ' t " get by " in her classes. The Senior Lodge can testify as to her ability as a chaperon. She is a good sport and a valuable addition to the faculty. Miss Ina Hanna Chaperon of the Thompson House The girls of the Thompson House are erv fortu- nate in having as their chaperon Miss ina Hanna. Miss Hanna seems almost like a " mother " to the girls. She is so kind and thoughtful, never too busy to help someone and a charming hostess She is always anxious that the girls have a good time. Perhaps one of the best things that can be said about Miss Hanna is that every girl who is under her care this year in the Thompson House wants to be there again next year. In short, where could we find a more charming " mother " and chaperon than Miss Hanna. Twenty-seven flREQ J. D. Barr. M.A., D.D. Chair of Bible Doctor Barr — Westminster ' s conscientious man! His daily duties are performed to tiie very best of his ability for the best interests of his Biblical classes. 1 lis reverence, his kindheartedness, and his stature of mind and body, make him the real Chris- tain man that he is. But Doctor Barr has humor with his seriousness, too. If you don ' t believe it, just isit one of his classes some day and enjoy yourself with the beauti- ful pictures he draws on the board. Trulv, we find a man of real worth in Doctor Barr. R. G. Ferguson, D.D., LL.D. President limeritiis It is good for the hearts of all to meet again and again with Westminster ' s " Grand Old Man. " He is the most lovable and respected figure on the campus. The cares of a faculty meml.er and teacher have not dampened the warm spirit of fellowship that he extends to all, nor his ever-ready smile and kind, cheerful words. He is the embodiment of the spirit of Westminster. The college is as much a part of him as he is of it. 1 le likes to mingle freely with the student body and we are always glad to |-.a e him be just " one of us. " J.AMES Osc R Campbell, M.. ' ., D.D. Professor of History and Political Science Isn ' t he good looking? Well, he may not be hantlsome. but he surelv is good to Look at. When ()u enter his classroom and sink down into a chair in the back row, and look into " Doc ' s " face, a sort of peace and restfulness comes over your troubled soul. He has a knowledge of history that few men possess and that fairly amazes those who attend his classes. " Doc " is a true friend of us all and we feel that he can help us through manv difficulties. It surelv vsould be a poor student who wouldn ' t ha e a big warm spot in his heart for Doctor C ampbell Twenty-eight u flRCQ jAMbS McAlLIS ' ILK SlIAi I tR, M.A. Professor of Mathematics Professor Shaffer is a man whom anvone may be proud to call his friend. Who is there who does not appreciate his cheery greeting or pleasant remarks as one meets him on the campus or street? In. the class room he is faithful and co.iscientious in his work, .• lthough F-reshmen may at first tremble at his seeming severity when the ' start Math, vet they soon recognize that he is an interesting an defflcient teacher. And those who take higher Mathematics regard him with profound respect and admiration. B. E. Quick, A.B., Ph.D. Professor of Biology Although Dr. Quick is not one of the " good United Presbvterians, " he is a professor who pos- sesses marked ability. One must imbibe some knowledge from this learned man ' s department to know how important little things really are. Dr. Quick has a sweet smile, pretty blue eyes and is a great tease. He especially delights in teasing " Freshies " by his elimination " exams. " Even if he did tell one of his classes that they didn ' t know enough to cheat, for a ' that we admire and respect him. John Abram Shott, Ph.M,, M.A. Professor of Psychology am! Hditcation " Westminster ' s Quiet Man " — but beneath his quiet unassuming manner there lies a wealth of knowledge, for he is as well versed about psycho-phvsical paral- lelism as about the properties of bromine. In each of these widely diverging fields he is equally com- petent and entirely willing to impart to us his knowledge of these things. Prof. Shott is a deliber- ate thinker, possesses a kindly spirit, and his atti- tude in the classroom is marked by his particular patience with the opinions of the students. . teacher he is indeed, and a man who will not be soon forgotten bv those who have been fortunate enough to come under his careful teaching. m Twenty-nine Wm. F. Luebke, Ph.D. Head of Department of English The English Department is quite fortunate in hav- ing for its head such a capable man as Dr. Luebke. This is his second year with us, and in this short time the EngHsh Department has grown and pros- pered. Dr. Luebke knows his subject thoroughly and is a master of the English language. Perhaps his greatest delight is to go back into the early history of the English language and find the derivation of words. His profound knowledge and ready wit tends to make his classroom interesting and his sunny smile has won for him a place in the hearts of many of the students. Miss Mary M. Wallace, A.M. Assistant Professor of English " The reason firm, the tempreate will, Endurance, foresight, strength and skill; A perfect woman, nobly planned, To warn, to comfort and command. And yet a spirit, still and bright. With something of an angel light. " — Wordsworth Shall we take your time to tell you how lovely Miss Wallace is when you know personally what a charming character she has. ' ' Her personality and influence are felt in every corner of the campus. Part of her charm is due to her interest in students, not only as students but as people. She takes time to be a friend of everybody. Miss Wallace has caught the true Westminster spirit if anyone has. The best part of it is that it does not stay inside of her but overflows. We hope to have her in our college for many years to come as an example of the finest and the best in a human life. William W. Troup, A.M. Professor of Ancient Languages Professor Troup is one of our most popular in- structors. Possessing a thorough knowledge of his subjects, he is a capable teacher, and a man of un- limited patience. He is always willing to explain a difficult construction and never becomes discouraged if one explanation is not sufficient. Professor Troup certainly does know human na- ture and he possesses a fine philosophy of life. Even though he does ask us to " look at the book " at times, Prof. Troup has won for himself the highest respect and admiration of his students. Thirty u Elbert R. Moses, Ph.B. fJead of Department of Public Speaking " A man is known by his works. " That is all that needs to be said of Prof. Moses. His plain and straight forward manner assures ' ou that he is your friend. Anyone who knows Prof. Moses realizes that he is a hard worker and because he is steady and reliable he has become prominent in all situations where there is work to do. In the Department of Public Speaking and the Department of Publicitv he has rendered Westminster College a ser ice that we can scarcely appreciate at the present time, but some day we will. He is known as one who never refuses to help anvone. He is also known as one who never fails to get what he goes after and surelv, if he is as successful in the future as he has been in the past, he will contribute still more to the success of West- minster College. Miss Em .M A LuL isE Stone, Ph.B. Professor of Romance Languages The first words that any student would use in describing Miss Stone are — " She ' s a good sport. " This is one of the highest tributes that can be paid to her, for good sports on the Faculty are rare, in a student ' s opinion. Good sports are in demand when choosing a " chap " and so she is always mentioned among the first. She is a friend of all the students, always ready to sympathize with them in their troubles and alwavs mterested in their concerns. Besides all this, she has a thorough knowledge of the Romance languages and is an excellent teacher. Ja.mes a. Swindler, M.A. Professor of Physics This is Professor Swindler ' s second year here and although at first we were a little inclined to watch him, he has successfully proven that there is no con- nection between his name and his character. To say that he has made good is expressing it mildly. Because only a small percentage of students are interested in Physics it was decided to give everyone in Westminster a chance to know him, so this year he was made registrar. As a Phvsics teacher Professor Swindler can not be beaten. Lnder his guidance Westminster will soon have a Physics Department of which she may well be proud. Thirty-one Miss Alice Cunningham, B.A. Assistant Professor of Romance Languages Miss Cunningham came to us with the Class of ' 24, over hill and dale from Marshall, Michigan, to take up the assistant professorship of French in Westminster. Not many days after her arrival here, those in authority decided that she would make just the chaperon that the girls in the Cum- mings House needed; and as long as she was with them the Junior Girls and Miss Cunningham got along as good pals shoukl. She is always happy and as young in spirit as an - girl in school, although her students seem to think her a very thorough teacher. W ' c looked for haf ptness and gladness; In yon tiY ' found iLwui all the lehde, And if ice brougl ' t perplexing problems, ) ou ever met us with a smile. Miss Turney, A.B. Instructor in French and Italian As pure and sweet her fair hroze seemed Eternal as the sky; And like the brook ' s low song, Ijer voice, — A sound which could not die. Miss Turney comes to Westminster from the University of Wisconsin, ahl -prepared to fill the position of Instructor in French and Italian. She is not only a graduate of the Liniversity but holds one of the highest honors in the scholastic world, that of membership in Phi Beta Kappa. Although 3 she has been here less than a year, there is not a rT person among us who has not been gladdened by her charming manner, and winning personality. Miss Cleo M.mheny, M.A. Assistant Instructor m luiglish and History Miss Matheny comes from the " Buckeye " state with at least two hobbies, walking and reading. Fair weather or foul, rain or snow. Miss Matheny is to be found in some of the numerous highways leading from New Wilmington, but her especial favorite is that leading to New Castle. She knows just how much time each walk takes so. that she ' ll be back in time for dinner, for she ' s human and likes to eat. Mrs. Henderson and " Jerry " are the big worries in Miss Matheny ' s life, Mrs. Henderson, because she won ' t allow her sufficient books for one day ' s read- ing, and Jerry, because he turns out the lights before she ' s through reading. However in spite of this common frailty we are glad that Miss Matheny is a member of West- minster ' s Faculty. Thirty-two u V A. Bykon Wimberly, A.B. Director oj Athletics W ' e cannot look upon our coach without a feeling of admiration, and a realization that Westminster is fortunate indeed in having as director of athletics such an all around athlete. Among those of us who have had the privilege of becoming acquainted with him through our athletic training he is better known as plain " By, " because he really seems to be one of us. We like him for his personality, but above all we admire him because he places Westminster first in his heart, his one desire being to uphold the record and traditions of the institution by putting out fighting teams who play the game clean, and to the end. m Miss Cokinne Mercer, A.B. Secretary and Cashier In our college there is an office. In that office there is a cage. In that cage there is a lady of smiling face and winning ways. ' es, vou have guessed it ! Miss Mercer received her A.B. from Westminster and since then has been connected with the College. For some time she was kept busv as Secretary of trie College of Music. But all of us were given a chance to become acquainted when she was transferred to the general olTice two years ago. Some of these days the members of the Class of ' 22 will be " old grads. " And. as most old grads do, we ' ll come to visit our college. If we do not find Miss Mercer in the office, Westminster won ' t seem qmXe natural. We wish her good luck. Miss Willis College Stenographer At the same time our Freshman class came to Westminster Miss Willis appeared in our midst. She came from Ontario, Canada, and brought with her the genial, friendly Canadian personality, ' fhe truth of the age old sa ing, " Good goods, etc., " was realized when we came to know Miss Willis for she was a good secretary, good skater, good chaperon and an all around good sport. In the college she could always be found clicking awav at her typewriter doing valuable, efficient work for Westminster. We are sorry Miss Willis couldn ' t be with us all year for though she was here onlv a s ' Kirt time she won a place in our hearts which can be filled by no other. Thiity-tliree Per Nielson Baritone College of London, University of Norwav, Paris, Berlin, Florence. We have been very fortunate in having Mr. [- " er Nielson with us a second ear. His splendid teach- ing ability coupled with his fine baritone voice are an inspiration to all who study with him. He is happiest when he is showing us how we . mericans sing. Mr. Nielson has a personality of his own and one which we all admire, in securing musical talent for the Artist ' s Course Mr. Nieslon has been most successful. Westminster College owes much of her success along musical lines to the untiring efforts of Per Nielson. Edward Frampton Kurtz Professor of Violin Westminster College is proud indeed to have Prof. Kurtz as a member of her musical faculty. In the musical world Prof. Kurtz has already been recog- nized as an artist. His exceptional ability coupled with a complete technical mastery makes him the great teacher that he is. In his contact with students his sincerity and his kindness have made him their true friend. The way in which Prof. Kurtz is ab ' e to portray the beautiful, poetic, emotional, side of life is remark- able. Prof. Kurtz has done much for Westminster and we all hope that he may stay with us still longer. Julian R. Williams Instructor in Pianoforte and Organ Another member of our musical Facult ' is Profes- sor Williams, who comes to us from New Castle. He is peculiarly well gifted insomuch as he is an artist of some renown at the present time. He can do big things on the piano in spite of his small sature. Professor Williams interprets music in the most pleasing and impressive manner. As an accompanist, his work is of the finest type. Professor Williams has helped to put our College f)f Music on the map and we ail sincerely hope he win continue to exert his efforts in fasor of our school. Ttiirty-four U Miss Ella Mover Professor of I ' lanofortc, Harmony and Appreciation Miss Ella Mover comes to us this ear after seven years of study in Philadelphia and New Y ' ork where she was graduated from the New York institute of Musical Art. Her careful preparation has made her a sympathetic and proficient instructor and her enthusiasm and cheer renders her a most popular teacher. Her mission is to make known to others the literature of music and how well she succeeds is known to those who have caught her message upon the piano. No one goes to sleep where she is. She has learned to hide a tear behind a smile and a merry laugh. She prefers " Mary Garden " for weeks but for Sun- days she must have " Djer Kiss. " When asked what she cares for most, her answer wil ' be, music, pictures, color, stars, sunshine, trees, dogs, babies and people. May Westminster be able to keep her on its musical faculty for manv a dav. De Ormond McLaughrv, B.S. Assistant Coacli What member of our recent football squads has not been thrilled to the depths of his soul when " Tuss " barked out, " All right gang? " With those words he reached down inside of you and pulled your fight and determination out where it made you a more etfecti e scrapper, lie was coach of the S. A. T. C. team in 19I S. and then in 1920 he served as backfield mentor with Coach Wimberly. Whether or not " Tuss " was actively engaged in the athletics of Westminster he has been an ardent supporter of the Old School since graduation. We are glad that we are going to have " 1 uss " for the season of 1921. Mrs. Henderson, B.L. Librarian There is one of our faculty who does not meet us in the classroom, yet she is as well known and in- dispensable as any of our professors. What would Westminster do without Mrs. Henderson. As librarian she is always at her post ready to lend us kind and valuable assistance. Without her aid and advice the library would be to the majority of us only a mass of books.

Butler Class President The Senior Class Back in the fall of those fighting days of ' 17, a little band of youths and maidens bade farewell to friends and loved ones, turned their backs on the old home town, and sped o er the shining rails to New Wilmington. Thither we came with all our freshness and innocence and as we later found, a willingness to obey. Little did we think of the ills that might betide us nor even did we dream of the plots that the valiant hosts of Sophs v,ere planning against this little tribe of ignorant plebs. In fact it was in this notable ear that the corn crop was a failure and it was necessary to fill the silos of the neighboring farms with the greenest of the Freshmen. Thus entered the class of ' 21. Though small in numbers we have been valiant in our labors for Westminster. Few classes have seen as dark da s for Westminster as we, few have seen as many overshadowing clouds disappear, giving way for a bright and glorious future for the greater Westminster. It is true that none of us got to the front lines in the World War. We were too young. We Vvould gladly have gone but the nation said " it is not our time yet, stick by the stuff, " and we stuck. Some of our number have fallen by the wayside, but others have come from elsewhere to fill the ranks and still we march on with the strong heart and the determined step of those who are living and working for the service they can render to our beloved college, our country and our God. True to the spirit of our class, we have had our share of triumphs, we have tasted of tiefeat, and still we press on. It is with love and pride for Westminster that we pass from her sacred halls to take up the strenuous responsibilities of Hie. So now with the characteristic spirit of the Westminster grad we will endeavor to render due service. Forty-two u flREQ r r Robert E. McClure Class President ' ' Qualitas Quae Videri Est " Nineteen eighteen passed into history as one of the peaks of time. No year, A. D, or B. C. can compare to it in its significance to mani ind. in it the greatest assault that national military ambition ever maile upon the world was decisively defeated. Nineteen eighteen witnessed the spread of a revolution through Russia bloodier than the French Revolution. Nineteen eighteen witnessed greater strides towaril democracv among all nations than the world has ever known. Nineteen eighteen witnessed the greatest battles of the world ' s history, involving more men and more destructive machinery than the world has ever known. Nineteen eighteen witnessed the entrance into Westminster College of the Class of ' -)22. Great things should naturally be expected of any organization bo rn of such stirring and stormy times. And as we now stand three-fourths of our way through our college course, we are coininced that the year nineteen eighteen will stand as the most vital date in the story of the human race. Although born of strife and turmoil our course through Westminster has been marked by real camaraderie and fellowship. The three years thus far have been very eventful antl have left a record entirely befitting a class with such an introduction. During the first half of our Freshman year, most of the fellows were enrolled in the S. A. T. C. But the second semester of that year found us a well organized class, dedicated to the task of proving ourselves " Qualitas quae videri est. " ]01(S-19 was rather uneventful as regards class athletics, but we held our own and were not found wanting in the class fights and the flag rush The fall of 1919 found us ready and anxiously waiting for the opportunity to be back in the fray, in our first encounter with the [- ' reshmen, although greatly outnumbered, we con- ducted ourselves in a very worthy manner. When the final whistle blew in the flag rush, our flag was still proudly floating on the breeze. We again demonstrated our superiority by ile- feating the Freshmen in the inter-class football game. We were well represented in the class basketball league and missed the championship only by a narrow margin. When we returned to fill our places as Juniors, it was with the realization that we were no longer under-classmen ; that where, before, we had been led, now we must lead; and that where we had. at one time, looked to the classes before us for precedent, now must expect to set an example for those who follow us. The desire to measure up to the true Westminster standard has always inspired us to greater and still greater achievements. And we shall never hesitate to point with pride to our footprints, thus far, on the sands of time. Forty-six flRCQ u I.OW RII-; ANDERSON New Wilmington, Pa. New Wilmington lligli ScitNIIFlC COUR?!: Lowrie is a product of the lo:al High School ani.1 has always been a credit to his class as an athlete and as a student. He is one of the most earnest students, not only in the class of ' 22. but in the whole school. He is an all-round college man. Lowrie believes that only as a life is spent in S ' jr ice, that it is then a life well spent, and to this end he has dedi- cated his life to work in the foreign missioi field. He intends going out as a medical missio.iarw aiul we all wish him success in his chosen li le ol work. WILLIAM E. ANDERSON West Middlesex, Pa. West Middlesex High Cl.iiSsical Course William E. . nderson, to the girls known as " hitev. " and to the fellows as just plain Bill. In the classrotjm Bill is one of the few who is never found unprepared. Bill takes a great interest in girls and in fact spends a great deal of his time seeing that they are supplied with food. . t least three times a day. Like all other great men. Bill has his hobbies. In the spring he can be found most an ' afternoon searching the dark pools of the Neshannock for suckers and in the fall he alwa.vs knows where the best chestnut trees are. J. ELLIS BELL New Wilmington. Pa. New Wilmington Hig ' i Scientific Course A big man — that ' s " Hez " all over. He has a big physique, a big smile, a big heart and a big ambition. He is specializing in Phssics and ex- pects to become an electrical engi ' ieer some day. His ability asserts itself in man ' different ways. He is a football plaver of no mean worth, an ex- cellent co.nersatioialist and an orator good enough for the Junior Contest. " Hez " believes in cultivating his personality by plenty of association with the opposite sex. He has many ardent ad- mirers among the co-eds but apparent Iv he still hesitates about which one he admires the most. The class of ' 22 unites in v ishing him success in his undertaking. Forty-seven flRCB R.W MOND K. BUTLER Da.vton, Pa. Dayton Normal Institute Scientific Course Ra ' first made his appearance at Westminster in tiie fail of ' 17, but he did not remain with u long. He decided that he would like , to gain a little practical experience so he left school and went to work in the har est fields. But he soon discovered that a man needs a good education before he can reach the top of the ladder of success, so he returned to school in the fall of ' 19. This was learned by many l-reshmen, mucli to their sorrow, when in class scraps they became entwined in Raymond ' s strong arms. The class welcomes Ray into their midst for he has taken part in every activity smce entering school ironi playing football to holding the spotlight m drama Ma ' his days in medical school be as happy and successful as those spent in Westminster and i;i the -ears .vet to come may we hear of him as one of the leading medical men of the countrv. ROBERT McVEY CAMPBELL Muddv Creek Forks, Pa. ' ork Centenary Institute Ca. ssic. i. Course Bob is our highest ranking student, speaking in phvsical terms, entering Westminster in the year of the ad ent of the S. A. . C. and known as the tallest man in the company. Me, however, did not allow the demobilization of the S. A. T. C. to in- fluence him to abandon the pursuit of knowledge. In his Sophomore year the confidence that his classmates had in him was indicated by his election, to the class presidency where he served most effi- cientlx ' . Bob is also a member of the Student Volunteers and is a cabinet member of the . M. C. A. In athletics he has been one of the few who do not seek to promote self but he does his level besf at whatever is assigned him. Not o.ily are the students aware of his sterling worth but the faculty has learned his dependability through his work in the classroom. Last, but by no mea .s least, as one of our fair members will testify, Bo ) is a star in co-education. Indeed no line of activ- ity in the college is complete without his good- natured assistance. J. RUSSELL CLEMENTS Murraysville, Pa. Union High Classical Course " Clemmy, " as this oung man is best known, is a man of a wide range of ability.

The next year his absence was keenly felt by those who had be- come acquainted with him. But in ' LS, like all those who had become infused with " Westminster pep, " he returned to continue his search for knowl- edge. Fo a stranger, on first acquaintance, he may seem to be of rather a retiring nature, but to us who have enjoyed his fellowship, he is regarded as a jolly, good-natured, whole-hearted soul with a kind word and a smile for everyone. His record in classroom work is enviable, but in ctveducation he does not seem to want to get anv higher than a " B.

Bellevue High Scientific Course " And he opened his mouth to speak " — " Hen " is always doing just that thing. Most of his success in Westminster has been along talking lines, for he is a debater. He was captain of our class debating teams both his Freshman and Sophomore ears. He was a member of the de- bating team that defeated Hiram College in 1919, and captain of the team that defeated the L ' ni- versity of Pittsburgh in 1920. in his Junior year " Hen " was elected President of the Tau Kappa Alpha. That honor right- fully belonged to him, for he is one of the few [■reshmen who won admission into this honorary fraternity in the Freshman year; and he has gradually de ' eloped until he is not only one of the best debaters in the institution, but one of the best to be found among the Colleges of the East. But " Hen ' s " activities have not been confined to debating for he has been active in class ath- letics, has been a member of the Student Council Committee since his Sophomore year, and last but not least by far, he was selected to act as Editor- in-Chief of the Annual Argo. That speaks of it- self for his ability. Forty-nine flRCQ WALTER M. FARRELL ' Hubbard, (3hio Hubbard High Scientific Course If the S. A. T.

Walter has a many-sided personality, and we are always discovering some quality in him that we ne er suspected. One of our woithv professors very aptly styled him a " humorous philosopher. " He delights in the mysteries of the stars and planets, but maintains that an earthly star is far superior to any celestial body when it comes to talking o er your troubles. He is very religious, especially during the summer, when his nights are largely spent in meditating upon the " Pauline Epistles. .As Professor Swindler ' s right-h.ind man, he is a genius in the Physics Laboratory " . He expects to become an electrical engineer, and we feel confident of his success. PAULINE GILKEY .New Castle. Pa. New Castle High Scientific Course Many words would prove insufficient to tell of the personal charms of Pauline, l-rom New Castle High this stately, dark haired maiden came to us, a Freshman. That which, in Pauline, might seem cool reserve to one at first meeting, upon acquaint- ance, is found to have hidden underneath an en- tirely pleasing nature. In Pauline we find an earnest student, a wise counsellor, a faithful friend, and a winning per- se )nalit ' . In athletics Pauline has won a reputation to he proud of: in V. W. work she has labored most ardently: in Math and Science, who can excel her? In truth, would that words could express with what admiration and esteem we regard her.

But right then that determmation to conquer as- serted itself and today he is the littlest man with the biggest punch in schc )l.

No, never! . nother thing Helen is fond of is dancing. Morn- ing, noon and night she trips the light fantastic. Do the teachers e er wontler why she is sometimes late to class? It is because she cannot think of lea ing till everyone else has gone. .•Xbout the only time Helen is still for very long is when she curls up in a corner with some poems. She just devours poetry.

Sickness delayed her last year, but she joined our class in the fall of ' 20 and has pro en a loval classmate. Her polite manners, high ideals, good lessons and fine spiril make her an all-round Westmmsterite. " Issy " as she is known in the Annex, is the only upper-classman there. She has a dif!kult task to guide those " wild and wooly " I-reshmen in the proper way. She has dispelled the blues frfim manv a homesick one and has given them much sound ad ice. We are glad that Isabella is a member of our class. KAI HERINE JANE KENNEDY New Castle, Pa.

" Trul ' words are inadequate to express our ad- miration of " Kaddie. " She is a star in basketball, an artist of exceptional abilits ' , an expert dancer and abo e all, a real friend. Unselfish in her every action, no task is too hard, no sacrifice too great, if it benefits others. These characteristics unite to make her a friend worth basing and one w hom ever one loves. , Fifty -one c VERNA EVELYN KRAUSE Marwood. Pa. Butler High Classical Course To know her is to admire her. V ' erna ' s witty sayings cause many a gloomy moment to be turned into one of laughter. A friend in need is a friend indeed and such a friend is Verna. She is one of the people who is ever ready with a helping hand. Her calm, digni- fied manner keeps her from getting over-excited and losing her head. We do notice though that Verna actually does become slightly fussed when Galen hovers around. For any information along Biological lines apply to Miss Verna Krause, room 20. Biology is Verna ' s major, — also Galen ' s. And they both seem to be especially adapted to it too. Helen, commonly known as one of the " Taiters, " has won her wav into the hearts of her fellow students and classmates with her ne er-failing good humor and winning smile. We hear that she came to us from the ranks of the schoolmarnis. but she brought none of their traditional i|ualilies with her. Helen has the unrivaled distinction of being a secoiul " llelen of Troy " and the fame that once filled the old world repeats itself in Westminster.

We might adii that perhaps co-education accounts for " Red ' s " de- velopment in college. However we cannot help but be charitable and mention some of his innate characteristics. As his name indicates, his red hair is his chief and most important distinction. And sometimes we wt)nder if perhaps he is not related to the character in the Bible that possessed " seven devils. " His scientific studies have occu- pied much of his spare time. As Class President, member of the Student Council, good student (sometimes), prominent member of social, re- ligious and " devilish " circles, " Red " remains above all, as true and sincere, and worthy of all good things that we can think of him.

WILLIAM JAMES HARPER McKNlGHT Walton High School Buffalo, N. Classical Course From one of the northern provinces there came to us a youth with a fair countenance and a thirst for knowledge. Having been privileged to promote the interests of William James and of Doctor James llarper, we believe this vouth to have a great career ahead of him. Mac has been endowed with a nimble wit and a rare abilitv along college lines of work. He is marked by a sunny disposition and a readin ess to participate- in anv prank that savors of fun. His first two ears did not deal very severely with Mac but during his Junior year he has shown numerous signs of settling down. " The greatest evidence for this may be noticed in the reason for his weekly visits to a little country place just beyond iNew Castle. Mac became a Student Volunteer in his Freshman year. The Class of 1922 entrusted their funds to him during their Sophomore and Junior years and in the position of Treasurer he has shown qualities of a good business man. Be- ing inclined towards the jovial rather than to the philosophical, W. J. H. X. Y. Z. will not strike manv dark spots in this world. CREIGH McDowell Williamson, f a.

She is an all around girl, interested in the spiritual and in- tellectual side as well as the social side of college life. She is jolly, good natured and a kind friend tt) everybody. One of Margaretta ' s virtues is to remain neutral during the arguments of her room- mates. Part of her philosophy is to " try anything once. " Our Freshmen year she was a town girl, her Soph year a " dorm " girl and this year she is help- ing to " mother " the Freshmen of the Thompson House. We do not know what the future holds for Margaretta, but may the Fates deal kindly with her. MARCELLL ' S E. NESBITT New (Castle, Pa.

" " Mart " came to us from that county that has given to Westminster so many famous people, and truly Martha is one of her best products. To tell of all her virtues would indeed be impossible in this short space, but we can mention her one fail- ing and that is her love for the use of " big words " and always at improper times. In Martha we ha e those inherent qualities that go to make up the highest t ' pe of college girl, namely love, hnaltw common sense, sinceritv and an absolute hatred of selfishness.

He proved to be an asset in the school at the very outset and this station won for him the cheer leadership during the fall of 1920. Popp ' s career has been marketl by two happen- ings in particular, namely, a Junior oration, and the fact that he one time figured as the leading character in " Love ' s Labor Lost. " Be that as it may, we ' re mighty glad to have him with us, as an industrious, pleasure-loving, carefree, chap. He lives not for himself but for his fellow-man. and after all, those are the individuals that make life worth living. Long live the one who ever stayed.

Mercer High Classical Course " Taiter " is one of the dignified members ot our class. Although some mav think her reserved, those who know her best would never accuse her of being quiet. She has a great love for fun, and if anything exciting is going on, you may be sure " l aiter " is in the midst of it. She is sort of a mixture of loves and hates, likes and dislikes. However, all her friends agree that she is a true friend and a good sport. " Taiter ' s " most serious fault is her taste for reading, quite frequently, a good love story, besides her inclinatio.i towards occasional co-edu- cation. She is also our mathematical shark and seems to enjov herself immensely when working out a stiff problem. F-or a numi ' er of years Marie has been a mem- ber of the Volunteer Band and we feel that if she carries her cheery smile with her. she will have the success which we all wish her to have in her chosen work.

She is generally at home in her studio at the Music Hall but sometimes may be seen at a studio in the Science Building. However, she takes enough time from her work and co-education to manage the class basketball team, belong to the Y. W. Cabinet and otherwise take an active interest in life. Grace is not afflicted with a hot tem per, cranky disposition or other serious defect. She ' s jolly and always ready for a good time. Alto- gether she ' s a friend worth basing.

In her, the Stewart familv reaches its culmination, and a fitting one it is. for she represents what is best in life — a jolly, spirited, cultured, college girl. Her executive ability has made her a place of honor in Y. W. work, Argo Staff and Junior Contest.

Graham were business managers of Kistler ' s party, and had successfully tided the " preacher " over many dark places. Pauline Gilkey and Walter Farrelly were astronomers and it was said that they received " messages from the stars. " Several of the class had been inveigled into the labyrinths of matrimony and Mary Lou Paff, Helen McKenzie and Kaddie Kennedy were playing the leads in three comedy dramas entitled " Married Life. " They all laid their trouble at the feet of Harjier .McKnight. the " Marrying Parson. " Poor Harper, him- self, has escaped as yet. Helen Irvine, the wild lady of the class, was a full-fledged suffragette, making stump speeches ' n everything. Lourie . nderson was in Europe lecturing on ' •Foolish Questions of the . ge. " . nd Harold Cox, Clarence Duff and Osmond Hayward had retired to a quiet country place where they were making a secret study of the girl question. It was thought that some time they would write a book as a result of their deliberations. With a suddenness that was startling, the light wavered, flickered and went out. The room, for a while, seemed ' to be in total darkness, but as our eyes lieeanu- accustomed to the light, objects began to take on shape. It was with a struggle that I realized the vision was over and after mentally shaking myself I " came to " and realized that while I had been dreaming of the future I had been living in the present and that 1 had an old French lesson to do for the next day. So I came back to the present and only time w ill tell whether the Hindu was as good as he said he was. Sophomore Class ' Twas on the morn of the seventeenth of September, 1919, that the greatest ar- ray of talented men and beautiful women of the U. S. A. assembled on the campus of " Old Main, " to be endowed with the name of Freshmen. Before we had scarcely become acclimated to our new surroundings and with the sorrow of home leaving still upon our hearts, the murderous threats of the " Sophs " echoed forth from all corners of the campus. But never shall we forget the night that these were silenced once and for all. Although we were not victorious in the " flag rush " and the inter-class football game, we soon evened matters by winning the inter-class debate and the basketball championship. And long before the end of our Fresh- man year we had demonstrated to all the quality of the class of ' 23. The summer months slipped by rapidly and we soon found ourselves glad to be back in " Old Westminster " this time as Sophs. This year fate was more kind to us for we succeeded in winning the " flag rush " against great odds. The annual inter-class football game terminated in a tie, but again we were successful in win- ning the inter-class debate. We have pla ed no small part in upholding the traditional glory of West- minster, for we have representatives of the class participating in all her activities, and we entrust our future to the spirit of the New Westminster to carry us to the day when we shall be proud to have our names placed in die list of loyal West- minsterites. Sixty-tour u James 0. Courtney Freshmen Class Writing the history of a class is like writing the history of Henry Coates ' Sunday clothes. Nobody has ever seen it nor them. Since the purpose of this history is, however, to fill a page, for that is what the Argos are made of, why not let the show begin. The sixteenth day of September in the year nineteen hundred and twenty will always he remembered as a famous one in the annals of Westminster. The reason for its unusual importance lies in the fact that there entered the doors of Old Main the largest Freshman class in the history of that renowned institution of learning. They soon showed, not only by their apparent physical power and intelligence, but also by the determination in their faces, that they had decided to establish, in scholarship, in athletics, and in a things which count in life, a record unsurpassed by any class that has gone before them. This worthy group comprises the class of ' 24— the Freshman Class. They had been about the campus only a short time when they learned that there was a " powerful " foe lurking near and commonly known as the Sophomores. This foe was waiting to subdue them if they should in any way prove themselves unworthy of the cause. Although they had little time in which to prepare tor battle they managed to assemble quickly and to overpower their opponents in a very decisive manner. They soon became aware of their verdancy as the inter-class activities re- sulted in defeats in the flag rush and the Freshman-Sophomore debate. After furnishing many men for the Varsity football squad there were still enough worthy sons left to hold the Sophomores scoreless in the football game. Freshmen ath- letes made an enviable record on all Varsity teams. So after this brief record of achievement, watch 1 24, for w hen 1924 steps she takes some stride. 0 Sixty-eight t — flRCQ Seventy-Uvo 0 Stventy-five J. Hunter, Kistler, D. Crowe. Skellw ilooJ, II.

Through this organization the new girls are given a cordial welcome into Westminster and get a glimpse of the ideals which West- minster men and women hold. Our weekly meetings are conducted in a very in- formal manner. Phases of life problems and campus problems are freely dis- cussed there, with an aim to bring the girls into a deeper realization of the neces- sity of living a complete and useful life. But we do not forget the social side of the college girls life, for around the Y. W. centers a large portion of the social events of Westminster. The " Get Ac- quainted Party, " the " Who ' s Who, " the " Thanksgiving Partv, " the " Xmas Ba- zaar, " the " Easter Hop, " and many other social events, under the auspices of the Y. W., afford much enjoyment for the girls. As a leader in all spiritual activities our Association aims to disseminate the principles of Jesus Christ throughout the student body and to hold before West- minster women the ideal of a life " superbly disciplined and supremely challenged. " The Y. M. C. A. The ' . iM. C. A. is the one organization interested in all the men of West- minster College. Its purpose is to have every man avail himself of the oppor- tunit - of learning, to know his fellow students, to talk over the issues and prob- lems that are vital to college men and to become acquainted with Jesus Christ as a personal Saviour. The Tuesday evening meetings are principally discussions of personal, campus and national problems. The Sabbath morning Bible Class hour is taken up by Bible study or an address is given by someone who has a mes- sage for young men. The Y. M. C. A. has established a systematic giving to Missions. A part of the money being designated to partial support of Mr. Howard Martin, Missionary to India, and the remainder to buy equipment for Dr. Tom Lambie in Abyssinia. ith the co-operation of the Y. W. C. . . a Freshmen handbook is published each ear. This last year very much interest has been shown in the summer conference at Silver Bay, N. V. In all actixities the V. M. C. A. endeavors to stand first and always for what it believes is right and worthwhile. It would strive to have every man live the life of a true Westminster and carry with him a record of a follower of Jesus Christ. G Eighty-three The Student Volunteers To every young person comes, at some time or other the question that all must answer, " What shall 1 do with my life? " Twenty-three of the students of Westminster have answered this question by volunteering for the Foreign Mis- sion service in answer to the great commission of the Master, " Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. " These students have signified that it is their purpose, if God permit, to spend their lives in service in foreign lands for 1 lim. The regular meetings of the band are held every Monday evening and these meetings prove a source of Christian fellowship to all. Frequently open meetings are held on Sabbath evenings to which all who are interested in Missions are in- vited. There is a strong feeling of interest in Missions among many of the students. To the students of the present generation comes the great challenge for service. There is a great work yet to be done and the force now at Vvork is totally inade- quate to carry out the task. Let all who are true Christians — " Pray the Lord of the harvest that he will thrust forth laborers into His harvest. " Eighty-four The Student Council The Student Council Committee is an organization composed of members from the student body whose main purpose is to serve as the point of contact be- tween the student body and the administration. Besides functioning in this ca- pacity, the committee has charge of problems arising from the student body. This year it has done a valuable work in bringing about various regulations concerning the wearing of athletic letters. Although this organization has only existed for two years, yet in that time its achievements have sufficiently justified its existence and we are sure that it will continue to play an important part in the " New Westminster. " m Eighty-five Le Cercle F-rancais has been for some years an established organization of Westminster, it has grown considerably in strength and importance during the last few years, numbering at present about one hundred students. During the war fresh interest was aroused and a new incentive given to the circle by the, wide spread desire for knowledge of French literature, customs and people which it has always been the aim of the association to cultivate. Last year we became allied with the Federation de I ' Alliance Francaise, whose headquarters are in New York and w ith whom many of our leading colleges are afTiliated. We have not yet been able to secure one of the " Conferenceers " sent out by the central office but hope to do so next year. The societv has enjoyed excellent programs during the year. Le Petit Jour- nal has furnished some excellent material for discussion and the phonograph, re- cently placed in the Romance Department, has gi en us the opportunity of becom- ing familiar with French intonation and accent. Le Cercle has purchased during the year wall maps of France, Spain and South America and presented them to the Romance Department. Vive le Cercle Francais. President - - ■ Raymond K.

The success of the club the last two years has been largely due to the unusual ability and untiring efforts of Director Nielson. The season was opened by a home concert in the College Chapel, the last of March. After Easter vacation the club sang in a number of towns in the vicinity of Pittsburgh. Everywhere it received a hearty welcome. The men were royally entertained in every tow n and came back from their trip feeling that they had been fully repaid for the hard work and the time they had spent in training. There were about twenty men in the organization this year. Charles Ash- ton was president and Russell Clements, manager. The Men ' s quartette and " Hub " Weide added very materially to the success of the season. u Girls ' Glee Club One of the most profitable, enjoyable and thoroughly desirable features of student life is the " Girls ' Glee Club. " This year the Qub is scoring one of the biggest triumphs of its history in the College, under the direction of Professor Nielson, the Director of the College of Music. With Professor Nielson ' s exceptional talent and large experience along musical lines, together with the co-operation of the girls the work of the Club has won much praise during its various appearances in Pittsburgh and vicinity. Nellie McCormick is President and Mary Wallace Business Manager. Early in the year dates were scheduled for the annual tour. As our aim in giving concerts in different sections of the country is to advertise our College, we hope that our effort this year will bring the desired result. Eighty-nine u flRCQ The College of Music has again given Westminster an artist ' s course second to none. Names that are placarded in the music world have appeared consistently on the Westminster concert program. It is a pleasure to acknowledge to Director Per Nielson our indebtedness for an artist ' s course surpassed bv that of no other conservatory in the countrv and ec ualled b ' few. The 1920-1921 artist ' s course follows: M.AURio Laurenti Baritone Metropolitan Opera Co. Mme. Julia Claussen Prima Donna Meno Soprano Metropolitan Opera C o. Mme.

Ninety-two flREQ u So reads the title of the Annual Junior Play presented by the Class of ' 11 at the Old First Church on the night of December eleventh, nineteen hundred and twenty. The play was surely up to the standard of other plays put on by former Junior classes. The whole community seemed to be there, including some of our Amish Dutch friends, and everyone recognized that it was the Junior Play due to the fact of the beautiful (?) curtain known to so many; that one which depicts Mt. Vesuvius; it is so life-like you can almost see it in eruption. The parts were well taken care of by the different members of the cast, hon- orable mention should be made of Bob Bennett alias Marcellus Nesbitt, the hand- some (?) lover and prize winning liar of the evening. We should not forget either Bishop Doran alias Ray Butler, the persistent little Bishop and his now famous words, " But 1 want my money. " A write-up of the play would be incomplete without some mention of Helen Irvine and Martha Paxton, we might call them " Vamps " or the " Siamese Twins, " they are the pair who got Mr. f alston alias Sherman iie, into some difficulties with his wedded wife. We should not forget Miss Williams, who so successfully coached the play. Cast of Char.

The Westminster Chapter has the following members: Dr. Wallace, Prof. Moses, Henry S. Evans, Presi- dent; Walter J. Skellie, ' ice-President ; Harold C. Kistler, Secretary and Treasurer. A new program v as instituted for men ' s debate this year, in that one team de- bated Ripion College, Ripon, Wis., using the following question, — Resolved: That European immigration should be further restricted. The other team debated the University of Pittsburgh, using this question, — Resolved; That legislation should be enacted providing for the establishment of courts of industrial relations, similar to the Kansas Court, in the several states. The team which debated Ripon v ' as composed of Foster, Captain, Kistler, Burke, and lost 1-2 in a hard battle. The team which debated Pitt was composed of Evans, Captain. Mc Knight, Burke, and won by a unanimous decision. By virtue of these two debates the following men won admission to the Tau Kappa Alpha; McKnight, Foster, and Burke. With these three new men and Evans as a nucleus, the outlook for next year is very promising. Girls ' Debate This year the girls ' squad formed a third part - in a triangular debate with West Virginia University and Ohio Wesleyan. The affirmative team, debating at Morgantown, W. Va., consisted of 1 lazel Phipps, Captain, Ethel Tracy and Ruth Simpson. The negative team which debated Ohio Wesleyan University at home, were Helen Ewing, Captain, Florence lams and Ruth Hamilton. Cirls ' inter-collegiate debate is comparatively new at Westminster, but we hope that it will become one of the strongest activities in the future. m Ninety-five Sophomore-Freshman Debate One of the most interesting of the inter-class activities is the Sophomore- Freshman debate. This year was no exception. Indeed the debate this ear was thought to be one of the strongest debates in inter-class circles in many years. The subject of the debate was, " Resolved: That European Immigration Should Be Further Restricted. " The Sophomores were represented by Foster (Capt. ), Miller and Dickson, while the new men chose Burke (Capt.), Strangeway and H. Hart- man as their representatives. The Freshman upheld the affirmative side of the argument and their argu- ments were so clever and well thought out that any prospective European immi- grant would certainly have quailed before them. Burke especially distinguished himself by his convincing delivery. So much for the Freshman. Then came the Sophomores and they demonstrated very clearly at the outset that they were out for business. It was not long before their experience began to show up the Freshman. Stilly Foster shown out in his last rebuttal speech with the brillianc}- of a real debate star. Together with the team work of his mates he overcame the arguments of the Freshman to such an extent that Burke was unable to patch them together in his last speech, although he made a noble effort to do so. On the whole it was an evenly contested battle, full of interest throughout. The judges were Rev. Neale, Dr. Freeman and Professor Ben Graham. They returned the decision in favor of the Sophomores, and all the crowd could say was that it was a good fight. flRiiP 0. May Day, 1920 " Softly the evening came. The sun from the western horizon, Like a magician, extended his golden wand o ' er the landscape — " And as if at his touch, a wondrous procession Led by two queens and their maidens, bearing flowers of a gorgeous hue Passed ' fore the gaze of the gathered assembly Passed to the southern side of the Campus, And there to a throne they ascended. Then midst the strains of sweet music, the queen of the former year, Dressed in spotless white with a touch of royal purple And crowned with the purest of lilies, Beckoned the queen elect; And as she knelt, placed on her raven hair A similar crown, a symbol of choice and of honor. Then in their honor a pageant. Depicting the scenes of great interest, Passed ' fore them and their host of admirers. First came the stalwart Columbus And with his brave little band he met the implacable Indian. Then followed the Pilgrim fathers. Singing songs of faith and freedom of thought and religion. Next Betsy Ross and with her Colonial JVlaidens, Presenting the first American flag and dancing the minuet. Then the belles of our beautiful southland, Wound the May-pole, a custom quaint and quite charming. Symbolic of growth and of freedom. Was the next and last scene of the pageant. Uncle Sam and the fair Miss Columbia, Opened wide the gates of our country, The " Land of the Brave and the Free. " The immigrants mingling poured in. The Japs, the Scotch and Italians, The Swedes, the Dutch and the French, Each dressed in his native costume. Danced the dance of his own dear land. Then when the last one had finished And the strains of the music grew faint, The queen rose and beckoned her maidens. Then back to the land of the sunset. Back to the western horizon. Passed the queen of another year. One hundred one The course in Pageantry and Playground is still in its infancy in West- minster. This is only the second year that it has been offered but it is already known as a fine practical course. The class hour seems like an hour of play rather than an hour of recitation, when both Freshmen and Seniors forget any claims to dignity that they may have and enter heartily into the games and stories. Occasionally passersby may hear weird and mysterious noises issuing from Miss Williams ' room while the pageantry class is there and be greatly concerned as to the cause of the turmoil. Investigation would prove that the racket was caused by ten girls, playing games, and happily singing without troubling themselves as to sharps and flats. The subjects studied have been many and varied, story telling, children ' s the- ater, singing games, gymnastics, folk dancing, the writing and presentation of pag- eants. These are some of the phases of the work which the class has thoroughly studied and just as thoroughly enjoyed. One hundred three The Holcad Staff Editor-in-Chief - - . - - - John A.

Miller One hinidred four flRCQ Westminster College Holcad The W estminster College I lolcad, the official publication of the students, was founded in June, 1884, as a semi-monthly magazine. In 1887 it made its appear- ance as a monthl ' , and continued in that form until 1914 when, under the editor- ship of Ralph Miller, it was changed into a weekly newspaper. The present four page five column paper was placed in its present form during the editorship of George U. Martin in 1919. The 1 lolcad Staff " , realizing that the I lolcad is the student publication, strives to print news, editorials, and exchanges acceptable to students and written by the students. The desire of every member of the staff since the reorganization following the war conditions has been to make the Holcad better and more representative of stu- dent life and activity. We have attempted to give the students some news of the alumni, and to the alumni who desire it, the news of the students and the doings on our campus. The difficulties have been many, but we hope the good ship Holcad has sur- vived the worst of the storm, and will continue to carry an even better and grander cargo in the years to come, for the glory of the college we love. The Argo The Argo, the student annual, was published first in 1904 bv the Senior Class. Since that time it has been published by the Junior Class. In this book it is the aim of those who publish the Argo, to depict college life in Westminster as it really is, and to show all casual observers, the faculty and students of the old institution at work and play. The College Catalogue The Westminster College Catalogue contains more real information about the college than any other one book in existence (unless, of course, it should ' be the 1922 Argo). It is published annually by the faculty committee on publications, and is valuable alike to old and new students. it tells how you may enter Westminster, how you are expected to act after entrance, what courses you may take, and under what conditions you may be graduated. This little bulletin explains just where your money goes, and what wonderful things you get in return. It introduces you to the faculty and the Board of Trustees, and gives a list of all the students with their addresses. Cer- tainly this is one college publication that is indispensible. Triennial Catalogue One of the very difficult tasks that comes to the Administration once in every three years is the gathering together of material for the issuing of the Triennial Alumni Catalogue. This task is under the direction of the Publicity Committee, and contains facts concerning the number of students that have attended West- minster, the number that have graduated and their occupations. The data for this publication is difficult to prepare and great commendation should be given the Publicity Department for their success. flREQ 1922 1922 FRESEMEH TAKE NOTKn EVOLUTION OF A FRE5HM AN All ye Freshies of Westminster College Come hearken nowtoourwords of knowledge.

There were only two men left as a nucleus around which to build the new team. This was the situation w hich Coach Wimberly faced at the close of the 1919 season and between that time and the opening of the 1920 season he worked hard and faith- fully to find men to take the places of those who had left. Practice started September thirteenth with about thirty men out. This was the largest squad that Westminster has had on the field for some years but they were practically all lacking in experience, having come fresh from high school. After the first two games had been played there were five players out of the game on account of injuries. As the season advanced the number of men on the injured list increased until b ' mid-season there were onl - four or five regulars who were able to play at all. it was a hard proposition for Coach Wimberly. The most important games were yet to be played. He was obliged to " save up " all that was possible and still fill the schedule. The Geneva game marked the turning point, although we lost by one touchdown. Allegheny came next and were played to a 0-0 score. The next game with Thiel resulted in a score of 6-6 The final game was lost to Grove City by a 14-0 score. Although the season from the standpoint of victories won was a failure, ne er- theless it has brought together a squad of men who had developed much and who will continue to cievelop. It has brought together a bunch of fellows, and instilled into them, not only a greater knowledge of football, but also the Old Westminster spirit, and we now have a squad which will next year be able to hold their own with any of the teams on our schedule. We are not discouraged by our showing this season, but taking advantage of the lessons learned this year, we will buckle up our belts another notch and dig in just so much harder. One hundred nine GOLDSTROHM Quarterback " Goldie " came to us this year from Elizabeth High where he starred not only in football but also in baseball and basket- ball. He made an enviable record here this season, playing in thirty-four quarters out of a possible thirty-six. He is not very big, but he sure can travel. " Goldie " has three more years to play, and we look for him to do big things for Westminster. U V 1 NORMAN SMITH End " Smitty " comes to us from South High School, ' oungstown, Ohio, where he had the reputation of being- one of the best players they have ever turned out. He started in at right half, but he was shifted to right end. He is fast, a sure tackier, and can pull down forward passes to perfection. He left us at mid-year, and although we are sorrv to lose him, we wish him the best success wherever he may go. GEORGE FIKE End " Fike " comes to us from the neighboring village of Ellwood City. He was a very valuable man to the team this season, showing all kinds of football ability. He is especially adapted to pulling down forward passes. However, he had his share of hard luck, being injured early in the season which handicapped him greatly during the rest of the season. " Pike " does not expect to be with us next year, but we are sure that he will make good wherever he may be. " SUDS " LENNOX Guard " Suds " is another husky product of Elizabeth High. He had the misfortune to have his ankle badly sprained in the first game, but when he was able to be back he sure did make up for lost time. " Suds " is popular with the girls as well as with the fellows, and with three more years to play we are looking forward to an enviable record for " Suds ' in the historv of Westminster College. One hundred ten u flRCQ L LE GUTHRin Hud " Honey " alike popular with the fellows and girls, played a stellar game for the Blue and White this ear. He is the fastest man on the squad, and is known at Allegheny as that " terrible blond. " He is a sure tackier, and when he hits a man, he always brings him down. " Honey " is a hard worker, and we are proud that he is one of the " bovs. " " CHUCK " H. NCOCK Guard " Chuck, " our diminutive guard, tips the scale at a mere two hundred pounds, but when he hits you ' d think it a ton. He came to us green, with little experience, but strongly recommend- ed by former coach McQuistion. Dan sure knew a good man when he saw one. Fast, aggressive, and of powerful physique, " Chuck " soon developed into a fixture on the line. " Chuck " blocked more punts than any other man on our team. We have three more years of the big boy. O, you Grove City line! " NORM " HOHLZLE Halfback . lthough " Norm " isn ' t quite as big as his brother " Steve, " he has the same fighting spirit and plays the same hard game. His mind is always on the game, and he is a steady, conscientious plaver. " Norm " still has two more years of football, and we all hope to see him smashing up Grove City ' s line next year. DAVE FAWCETT Quarterback One of the upholders of .the Blue and White of whom we are justly proud is " Dave " Fawcett. Although he is not very large he is full of pep and always keeps his head. He puts all he has into the game, and no man on the squad has more fight than he. " Dave " still has two more years to play, and we expect to hear him calling signals for the Blue and White again next year. — iH4 One hundred eleven RAYMOND BLi TLEiR End " Ray " isn ' t very big, but he is solid as a rock, and fast, and when lie hits a line somebody is sure to know it. This is his third year on the squad, and he has always been a hard worker, doing his best for the Blue and White. We all liked the kind of football " Ray " played, and we are glad to see him wearing the " W. " " RED " ANDERSON Halfback " Red, " our captain, plaved in hard luck this year. His last ear in school, which should have been his best, he had the misfortune to injure his ankle badly enough to remove him from the game most of the season. His pluck ' comeback in the Thiel and Allegheny games, in spite of his ankle, has given him the admiration of the school. " Red " was always a hard worker, putting everything he had into the game, and his loss will cer- tainh ' be felt on the field next fall. DISH MAN Quarterback " Dish " comes from below the Mason Dixon Eine, and if any proof is needed just listen to him call out " foty fo. " He played football for a while with the University of Kentucky, and then decided he needed a change of climate so he came to Westminster. " Dish " is a quarterback of the first class, being one of the clever- est forward passers Westminster ever had. With " Dish " as captain of our team next year we feel that we have a man who will lead the Blue and White in a verv successful season. " RED " ECKLLIND Tackle " Red " comes to us from Detroit Central High where he made an enviable reputation as a football player. . " Red " is a husk ' lad and solid as a rock. 1 le is not a flashy pla er, but very consistent and dependable. One had only to see him in the Geneva and Allegheny games to see the fight that he has in him. This is " Red ' s " first year, and in the future we expect to see him as one of the mainstays of the team. One hundred twelve 0 (7 Basketball Season The Blue and White came through a rather unsuccessful season this year, winning but two of the games on the schedule. The first two games, coming so soon after the close of the football season, were played before the team could be put in shape. Soon after Christmas vacation the team went on a northern trip, winning the first game from St. Bonaventure, but dropping the other two games of the trip to the University of Buffalo and to Canisius College. The next game on January 22nd, was lost to Westinghouse by a small margin. Washington- Jefferson at New Castle was next. The boys of the Blue and White put up a fine game but were beaten out by a few points. Geneva was next on our schedule. This was a hard game, the team being nosed out by one point. The next game with St. Bonaventure was won by a five point margin. Following this the team journeyed into West Virginia, losing all the games on this trip by a few points. The next trip was to Pittsburgh where the team lost to Washington and Jefferson and to Duquesne. The next game was with Grove City follov ed by a home game with Duquesne, which was lost by a few points. Two games V :ere then dropped, one to Grove City, and one to the University of Pittsburgh. The final game with Geneva at New Castle was a battle royal, Geneva winning by one point. Although our victories were few, yet we must take into consideration the handicap under which the squad was working. Having a floor little more than half the size of some that the team played on, they were naturally handicapped by this obstacle, and we must not fail to give all due credit to Coach Wimberly and the men on the squad. Next year with a new floor, second to none in the country, we Vvill look forward to a team that will bring home the bacon. One hundred fourteen flRCQ " JACK " McFADDEN, Captain Guard This is Captain McFadden ' s last ear at Westminster, and in losing him the Blue and White will lose a man whose place will be hard to fill. " Mac " was always in the game every minute, and there were very few passes got by him. " Mac " is a rather quiet sort of a fellow, but he is right there with the goods when on the basketball floor. CLARENCE RANDALL Center " Randy " was back in the line-up again this year, and pla eel the same clean, hard game that he played last season. Besides being able to tip the ball he is a crack shot and you will always i ' md several goals chalked up to his credit. " Rand " has two more ears to play, anil we expect two more ears of clean, hard basketball from him. DAVE FAWCETT Forivard " Da e, " with his smile, was one of the mainstays of our team this year. Besides being fast he is a sure shot, and handles the ball well. He is always on the move, and you can find hirn just where you want him. " Dave " has a good eye and a steady nerve, as is shown by his foul-shooting. With two more years at Westminster we hope to see his smiling face again next sea- son DISH MAN Guard " Dish " came to us this .vear from the Lniversity of Kentucky and they certainly lost a good guard when they lost him There is not a harder worker on the squad. He was forced to quit the game before the season was finished, but he will be with us again next year and we hope to see him wearing the Blue and White on the basket- ball floor again. " STAN " WHIELDON Forward " Baldy " isn ' t very big but he certainly can get around the floor. He is an easy man to find, as he has a " crown " which is alwavs ver ' much Mn evidence " Stan " has been a hard worker, and certainly deserves his place on the team. This is his first year at Westminster, and we expect to see him again next year doing his best for the old Blue and White. JIM COURTNEY Guard This is Jim ' s first year at Westminster, but ability at the position of guard soon won him a place on the team. He is one of the fellows who has his fill of the " Old Westminster Spirit, " and he does his best for the school. He is a clean player, a con- scientious worker, and has a spirit which says, " Never quit until the last whistle is blown. " He is a fellow of whom we are proud, and of whom we expect much in the future. GOLDSTROHM Forward " Goldie " came to us this year frcjm Eliza- beth High School and we only wish that they may send more like him. Fast and aggressive, he is after the ball every minute of the game. He is a good all-round player, playing the position of guard as well as for- ward. When it comes to breaking up passes he is hard to beat. With three more years to play we may confidently expect great things of him. One hundred sixteen u Dot Ralston Mary Shaefer Girls ' Basketball Starting out with practically the same team that we had last year, our girls have been making a tine showing. With " Kaddie " as captain and side center, and Pauline in center, " Gilly, " guard, and " Beeb, " forward, we ha ' e the nucleus of a team that can ' t be beaten. Then, too, we got some mighty fine material from our Freshman Class in Adelaide Trunick, forward, " Eddie " Lockhart, side center, and Lois Logan, guard. Our first game was with Geneva, which ended v ith the splendid score 12-9. We have taken on a new rival this year in the University of Pittsburgh. Then we must not forget our old rival. Beaver, with whom we played one game and whom we expect to annihilate completely. Our girls have been working under disadvantages, playing the Pitt game under water — as one might say. Next year, however, with the new gym and all its advantages we hope to show our opponents what a new gym can do for us. One hundred seventeen u K ADD IE KENNFDY, Caplani Side C Ciller We were all glad to welcome Kaddie again on the basketball floor this year. As captain of her team she has shown herself to be equal to the task. Still practicing under disadvantages the girls have kept up their enthusiasm and ha e produced a win- ning team. As side center it is hard to find one who is quicker, more alert or on the job than Kaddie. We are sorry that she has to give up the game and we certainly appreciate what she has contributed to the team so far. PAULINE GILKEY Center We are proud to have Pauline as center this year. Always readv — get that ball down to the forwards or die in the attempt — that ' s Pauline. Everything she does, she does with a view to ha ing it well done, is it any wonder that Pauline can plav basketball as she does. Pauline has been with us for three years now and we only hope that she will play on the Westminster team for another year. And even then I ' m afraid that we wont want to gi e her up. BETTY WEBB Forward We are more than glad to have " Beeb " this year representing Westminster in basketball. Last year as side center " Beeb " hatl no rival and it seems that this year she is living up to that repu- tation. Speedy and sure mark Betty as a star plaver and we all hope that she will continue to play for the Blue and the White as long as she can. (Ine hundred nineteen GILLY GILLETTE Guard Who e er can pass a ball past Gilly, our fast guard, is ac- complishing something. " To stick to her forward " is Gilly ' s slogan and to that end Gilly plays her hardest every minute of the game. With Lois, Pauline and Ed waiting for the ball, Gilly passes and ere long we see that same ball pass through the basket. Gill ' is a fine clean player and one al va s to be relied upon. ADELAIDE TFiUNICK .■ t the first of the ' ear it was a problem as to just who was going to help " Beeb " roll in the baskets, but it was not long unsolved. Adelaide soon showed that she had an eye for the basket and that she could drop them in from most any angle. She sometimes doesn ' t appear to move yery swiftlw but never- theless she gets her hands on the ball. " Ad " hails from Coraopolis and has three more years of basketball before her. LOIS LOGAN Lois piloted Bellevue High School Varsity for two years and promptly lent her aid to the team when she arrived at West- minster. At present Lois pla s a star game at guard but when we watch her throw baskets from the center of the floor, we won- der how long it will be until she will be playing forward. Have you noticed her pass the ball? Did you ever see any other girl do it quite like that? When a girl bumps up against Lois they know what a regular guard is. EDITH LOCKHART Some good basketball material arrived in Westminster when " Ed " arrived in New Wilmington. She is a seasoned hand, hav- ing had much good experience in New Castle High School " Ed " holds down or rather holds up the position of side center. Did you ever see her work " signals? " Probably not but she sure knows where to get the ball from the tip-off. She plays a fast and hard game and can put up a scrappy fight with the best of ' em. u flREQ RUNSER Baseball Baseball this year was handicapped by a lack of experienced men. When the season opened there were only four men out from last year ' s team around which to build the team. The work during the first part of the season was greatly hamp- ered by wet weather. In spite of the obstacles in the way the team was whipped into shape and played the first game with Slippery Rock, winning by a score of seven to three. The next game as with Carnegie Tech at Pittsburgh and which was lost by a rather large score. Two games were played with Grove City, one at Grove City and one at home. The game at Grove City v as lost by a score of 4-0 and the home game 3-1. These games were both hard played and the boys in Blue and White kept the Crimson and White on their toes every minute of both games. Two games on our schedule were cancelled on account of wet weather, one with Pitt and one with Waynesburg. The team lost two games with Geneva, one with a score of 4-2 at Geneva and the home game by a score of 2-1. Another hard-fought game was with the Pittsburgh Collegians which was lost by a score of 3-2. The last game of the season was played Commencement week with the Alumni. The boys played a hard game, but were beaten in the latter part of the game by a score of 6-5. Although the boys only won one game, they played a good brand of baseball and with the training and experience which they received this year should be able to turn out a good team. One hvmdred twenty-one flRCQ NOF M HOELZLE " Norm " played the left field position this year and plaved it well. He is fast and a good judge of fly balls. Besides his field- ing ability he is a dangerous man at the bat. " Norm " has two more years to play with the Blue and White, and with his abilit ' we e.xpect him to be a player of whom Westminster will be proud. WALTER CHEERS Catcher Nobodv ever knew that Cheers could play ball until one day they got him behind the bat and he has been put there to stay. Although he isn ' t very big, he can cover a lot of ground and do it right. He is a hard worker and always does his best. With three more years to play we expect him to develop into a first class backstop. WALTfiR WIGGINS. CaMaur Pitcher When it comes to putting them over the plate. " Wiggie " is right there with the goods. He has a slow ball which makes the baiter strike about the time the ball is half way to the plate. Besides this he can pitch most any other kind of a curve ever heard of. " Wiggie " has another year to pitch for the Blue and White and we expect to see him on the mound again next year. LYLE GUTHRIE Outfielder " Honey " played as utility outfielder this season and showed that he has in him the making of a real baseball man. He was the fastest man on the squad and played his position well. He is a hard conscientious worker, who puts everything he has into the game. This is " Honey ' s " first year, and we expect to see him holding down a regular position on the Varsity next spring. One hunditd twentv-two u flREQ JERR ' WRIGHT Pitcher " Jerry " wasn ' t satisfied with making a name for himself in football and basketball, but he also blossomed out as a baseball player. " Jerr ' " had speed to burn and a got)d assortment of curves, lie is a pitcher who studies his man and knows just what to serve each man who comes to bat. " Jerry " was only with us for one season and he was missed not onl ' in the baseball season but by " others. " EDGAR EDDY Outfielder " In a Well " is the expression always heard when a fly ball goes in Eddy ' s direction. Aside from being fast as lightening and a sure catch, he is a mighty man at the bat, getting more hits than any other man on the team this season. Eddy has another year at Westminster and we hope to see him knocking the cover off the ball again next year. STILLMAN FOSTER Second Base " Stilly " held down the second base position in a creditable manner this year. He covered his ground well and few balls got by him. If you want to see a pretty peg to first, just watch " Stilly. " He says that baseball interferes with his co-education, but nevertheless we expect to see him playing around second base again next year. " TOMMY " REESE Shortstop " Tommy " is a Freshman this year coming to us from New Kensington. He has played the shortstop position in an excellent manner this year. " Tommy " is one of the fastest men on the team and the way he scoops up a ball is nothing short of mar- velous. He is also a dangerous man at the bat, and we expect to hear great things of him in the future. One hundred twenty-three flRCQ u -I DAVE FAWCETT Third Base " Da ' t ' " hckl down the third base position this year, one of the most important positions on the diamond, and he did it in a manner suitable to everyone. Besides being a first rate player he has a hne of chatter that would keep anyone going or rattle the most experienced pitcher on the diamond. This is " Dave ' s " first year, so we need have no worry about the third base position next year. • PIB " CONWAY Ontfichh-r " Pib " played this season in right field. His speed and ability to judge tly balls made it dangerous to kfiock a ball in his direc- tion. He was also a man to be feared at the bat as he had the knack of making hits just when they are worst needed. " Pib " was a steady, consistent, all-round baseball pla er, and one who will he missed in next ' ear ' s line-up. i2(l JACK LEWIS First Base " Jack " played in the outfield last year, but the coach this year saw in him great possibilities as a first baseman so he shifted hun to this position. " Jack " is big and can cover a lot of ground. It doesn ' t make any difference to him whether the pegs are good, bad, or indifferent, he scoops them all in without any trouble. This is Jack ' s last year at Westminster, and he will leave a big hole in the team. ( ne hundrwl twenty-four flRCQ Breaking Ground for the New Gym The day before Commencement at W estminster is alwa s a busy one. From morning until night the day is crowded with events of the greatest importance. But last spring, this day, the eighth of June, was given added distinction by being chosen as the time for breaking the sod on the site of the new gymnasium. The crowd of alumni, students and townspeople that came swarming down from the Class Day exercises in the church lined the brink of the hill and made a pleasing background for the exercises that were carried out below. The students and the alumni spent the time while waiting for the ceremonies to begin by giving some of the old college songs and yells. When all was ready Mme. Marie Sundelius of the Metropolitan Opera Company, who w as the guest of Westminster College for the day, was given the honor of lifting the first sod. Then followed Dr. A. R. Robinson, President of the Board of Trustees. Mr. John Nelson, Chairman of the Building Committee, President W. Charles Wallace, and Coach Wimberly, each of whom dug a good big spadeful of earth and threw it as far as he could. After this the Senior Class, with their president, " Tim " Johnson, holding the handles, plowed a furrow across the bottom of the hill. The other classes fol- lowed in order, ending with the Freshmen, who after a ear in Westminster had grown strong enough to plow a furrow that would be a credit to anyone. These various events were interspersed with speeches by some of the promi- nent men present, notably Dr. Robinson and Mr. Nelson. When the ceremony was over, the ground was left for the builders to take up the work. An one who comes into New Wilmington now can see what has grown out of the beginning that was made on that hot June afternoon. It pa s to start things right. m One hundred twenty-seven The Student Motion Picture Bureau made its appearance in February, 1919. From that day to this it has been the object of much interest both in college and town circles. Its history is intensely interesting but it would fill a volume. One evening Hood and Butler sat idly dreaming, they did not think of this or of that but they suddenly struck upon the idea of a movie for New Wilmington. And behold! the wild dream became a reality. The charter firm included Thomas Hood, Howard Butler and J. Irvine Reaney. Reaney later sold out to Wilbert Anderson. Overcoming almost insurmountable barriers they have become well established. Underclassmen can scarcely appreciate the fact that the movies have done away with the much disliked Saturday evening parlor dates. The Bureau has given up a great many pleasures on Saturday evenings, in fact, almost too many they thought, sometimes. They have given the best shows that they could afford for the size of the crowds in attendance and wish to thank the student body for their patronage. MilSllllERIlOE On the weird and m ' stic All-1 lallow e ' en a strange compan ' met at the Hillside to while away the time. Some were brightly attired as gypsies, others imperson- ated the " Gold Dust Twins. " Two or three " pumpkin heads " had us mystified for a time. Dame Fortune w as present v ith her horn of plenty with which she blessed man ' . The Queen of Hearts was there without her tarts, which the Knave of Hearts must have carried off for he was nowhere to be seen. Fairies and brownies entertained us with their magic deeds; clowns indeed amused us with their foolish actions and words. Indians, a strangly-attired woman, farmers and dudes went to make up the company. After a grand march, refreshments were served in the dining room; and the part}- broke up with ever}one con ' inced that the evening had been well spent. One hundred thirty-one u m Bo -s ri ' ' s n T fN v One hnndrcd tliirty-foLir The Corporation On the fifteenth day of October in the Year of Our Lord Nineteen Hundred and Twenty, there came into existence, an organization then known and forever remembered as The Corporation. It was a long established fact about Westminster that Evans Popps off Wyhe (he) waits for McCracken. So that, the formation of The Corporation was chiefly a consolidation, at least, a reorganization. Dissention was made impossible by the election to an office of each stockholder in The Corporation. The officers, stockholders and sole members are as follows: Sherwin M. Wylie. President; Emmet McCracken, Vice-President; Henry S. Evans, Secretary and Treas- urer, and J. Lumen Popp, Press Agent and Advertising Manager. The Corporation was founded upon the ties of Brotherhood, and for the mutual better- ment and benefit of those incorporated therein. At all times the members ha e sought to uphokl the true Westminster standaril. seeking to improve conditions upon the Campus and encouraging those activities which tend to elevate and ennoble. .At various dates, candidates have been considered for membership, but as thev have been blackballed. I he Corporation has maintained its standard — par excellence. " Blest Be the Tie That Binds. " m One hundred thirty-six flRCQ u 13 Osculation !. Bin Kist, D.K. Agrippa Tite, D.S.

If she is singular you become nominative. You walk across the street, changing to the verbal subject and then become dative. If she is not objective in this case you become plural. You walk home together. Her mother is accusative: her father becomes im- perative. You go in and sit down and you find that her little brother is an iindefinable article. You talk of the future; she changed the subject for the present time. You kiss her and she favors the masculine. Her father is present and things are tense and you are a past participle after the active case is over. Joke Editor — " Why! Did you see that girl smile at me? " Companion — " That ' s nothing. 1 laughed out loud the first time 1 saw you.

The birds were in full bloom, While I went down the cellar, To sweep an upstairs room. The time was Tuesday morning On Wednesday just at night. I saw a thousand miles away A house just out of sight. The walks projected backwards, The front was in the back; It stood between two more, And it was whitewashed black. ' Have dinner with me tonight, Caesar. " ' Can ' t, Kliney, I ' m going to see Hamlet. " ' Aw, bring him along, too.

She welcomes to her class-rooms and halls all earnest young people of whatever denomination of Christian faith. LOCATION Westminster is located sixty miles north of Pittsburgh in a village noted for morality and healthfulness, and overlooking one of the most beautiful valleys of the State. Through service over the Pennsylvania Lines between Pittsburgh, Oil City and Buffalo makes the College easily accessible from all points. A paved road and bus service between New (Castle and New Wilmington makes Westminster still more accessible to the larger centers of population. y EQUIPMENT The College Plant is adequate for the accommodation of 400 students. The Administration Building, familiarly known as " Old Main, " contains Chapel, twelve class-rooms, four Society halls, Library, Art-Room, and College Offices. It is scholastic in appearance and through recent renovation is adapted to all modern needs. Science Hall contains three lecture rooms, six laboratories devoted to Chem- istry, Physics, and Biology, Museum, photograph gallery, stock rooms and offices. The laboratories are furnished with the latest equipment with a fullness which challenges comparison with the collegiate departments of our best universities. The College of Music is a building of exceptional beauty and convenience containing thirty-six rooms, embracing studios, practice rooms, libraries, re- ception parlors and concert hall. Steinway and Mehlin pianos are used by all teachers and nev ' grade practice instruments are furnished all students, no instru- ment being kept longer than two years . " The Hillside, " a dormitory for young women, excels in beauty and con- venience. A large number of rooms are furnished with private bath. The dining-room has been pronounced the most attractive to be found in any institu- tion. About ninety young women can be accommodated. The New Gymnasium, which is about completed, will be dedicated at the June Commencement. It is modern in all its equipment and is among the finest to be found in Pennsylvana Colleges. FACULTY Westminster ' s Faculty is large in proportion to the number of students and hence furnishes opportunity for thorough work and personal interest in students. All departments are in care of university-trained teachers. Thoroughness is the watchword of each department. One hundred sixty-six 7=n CURRICULUM The Curriculum of Westminster is purely collegiate with auxiliary courses in Public Speaking and Music. A sub-l-reshman class is maintained for students who come from communities where but three ears of High School work is given. The courses of College work, Classical and Scientific, prepare for the work of the professional and technical schools, and also fit for High School and College posi- tions. Graduates are accepted on diploma in leading universities. THE COLLEGE OF MUSIC The College of Music is conducted by a corps of instructors who have had their work under the most eminent and successful masters of Europe and America. The work accomplished is everywhere recognized as of the highest order. No expense or effort is spared in making this department the ecjual of the best Musical Conservatories. PHYSICAL CULTURE AND ATHLETICS The Department of Physical Culture has been created by the addition to the Faculty of a Director of Physical Culture and Athletics. Physical training is required of all students, and all athletic sports are under supervision of the Director of Physical Culture and the respective coaches. Foot-ball and cross-country running are the fall sports; basket-ball the winter sport; track, base-ball and tennis those of the spring. Tennis and track are rapidly attaining the place of prominence as varsity sports for the spring season. New tennis courts are being built adjacent to the campus and this branch of athletics is now restored to the list of varsity sports at Westminster. MORAL IDEALS Westminster has for her ideal effort the harmonious blending of broad scholar- ship, pure morality, and an evangelical atmosphere such as will foster reverence for the Bible as the word of God and sympathy with the missionary program of Christ. It is maintained that sane college discipline must demand from college students the same morality which has characterized the Christian homes from which they come, and that under no circumstances should young people who a re learning to make a living and a life through the sacrifices of Christian parents and endowments of the Church, be permitted a lower grade of moral conduct than those of their own age who, in the home community, are doing the work of life.
