fi t t OREETINO.,
11124 of the class of 1905. lt would fain creep into your hearts, and lure you
may from yourselves to the scenes ol' the beloved Alma Mater.
It would invite the stude11t of former days to wander with it over
'T-1,-lf: the hills and dales of the Big Blue, along the winding drives and
narrow, wooded paths of tl1e college campus, down by the spring and over by the stone.
It would invite him to take a peep into recitation rooms, chapel, dining room, parlor and
Christian association rooms, and note the changes time has brought.
It would wish that the student of to-day, i11 the accounts of the various classes, of
the Christian associations, literary societies, debating clubs, tennis and oratorical associa-
tions, and in the stories, poems and anecdotes, might live again the scenes so familiar to
him, and enjoy the enchantment which distance leads to the view.
It would show to the stranger, and to the future student, college youths and maidens,
who know how to have the best of times, the best of recitations and how to make the
most of life, whose aim it is to develop equally the physical, mental and spiritual na-
ture. It would bid them come to "Sunset Ridge," and learn the joys and sorrows of col-
lege life, and all they mean to us.

My Dear Chum: Why are you so afraid of folks,
Bessie? Every day I think what good times we might
be having together at Doane if you could only forget
your fear and 001119. You are always speaking of 11ow
terrible it must be to meet the faculty, and how insig-
nidcant I must feel in their presence. Yes, indeed, the
faculty of Doane College has impressed me very much.
As a Freshman I was fllled with a wholesome awe, but
as a Junior I am daily coming to a clearer realization
of the kindness of their hearts. Miss T. has been espe-
cially considerate of my feelings, emptying her pocket-
book buying red ink with which to artistically decorate
llly Hamlet and Browning papers, and, realizing my lone-
some tendencies, has summoned me again and again to
'fwalk the green carpet" before her gentle presence. You
would hardly recognize me, Bessie, for through associa-
tion I am gaining such an appreciation for the beautiful,
in fact, I can already greatly admire Thompsonian days-
less poetically speaking, grey days-and I'rexy's fiery
Prexy teaches history and pedagogy, and he makes
us study, but you would not be afraid of him. Two of
his great psychological teachings have sunk deep into
my brain--that too much study is not good for the
health, and plenty of out-door exercise is absolutely
necessary, especially in the springs. Speaking of spring
makes me think of Professor Gillespie. To gain my good
will he ranks me as a Sophomore, according to his new-
fangled, eastern scheme. If I only knew as much Greek
and Latin as he does I would be happy, but I suppose
we are all blessed in different ways, and I can get to my
eight o'clock Latin class o11 time. He is very fond of
golf, and so is Professor Jillsong but Professor Jillson's
specialty is peanuts and talking. I acquired so much
general information when I took French and German,
besides finishing up several bits of fancy work.
lVe don't have any time for such thi11gs in Professor
Bennett's classes. He teaches mathematics and Bible.
If we study hard in trig. and analytics, he gives us a stick
and chain in the spring and tells us to survey. He is so
thoughtful of our pleasure, and I like to survey-in the
spring. Professor Hosford is kind, too. He allowed us
to study the heavens every clear evening last spring, and
told us to observe the moon whenever it was possible. I
tried to follow out his injunction, but Critch had the im-
pudence to object. Poor Critch! Some one has run off
with his dark lantern, which he never used, except on his
bicycle. I have only one'thing now to be afraid of, and
that is Professor Reynolds. He has been abroad, studied
in Paris, you know, wears his hair a la Francaise, and
looks so much as I imagine the great masters do, that I
keep my distance and hold him in awe, but the music
students say that he is not very dangerous. I am a little
afraid of Principal Brown, too, for it is said that he can
read any student's thoughts and intentions in twenty
lninutes. Oh, I don't mean that my intentions are not
perfect, but I don't want him to go to the trouble. you
You'd like Poddy, Bess. He lets me sit on the back
seat in l'oly Con. Some of the faculty prefer to have
me sit on the front seat. I suppose they want me for an
example. Poddy plays baseball just fine, in fact, he is
the star player on the faculty team. Professor Powers
is fine, too. He is o11r Junior professor. I always think
of him as I first saw him-a toad in one hand, a sala-
mander in the other, a rhetoric book under his arm, and
Mrs. Bohne makes me feel so much at home, she
comes and knocks "good-nightv at my door every night,
and keeps my clock just on time. She gives us the most
instructive lectures, all about matches and such interest-
ing subjects. Sometimes she calls to see if my room-
mate has been sticking pins in the wall. That room-
mate of mine is so careless. Oh, 1ny! I hear her coming,
a snake peeping from either pocket.
- COLLEGE CAMPUS.
THE PAST SEVEN YEARS AT DOANE.
EN years ago Doane College celebrated
57' 'I its quarter centennial anniversary. At
that time it fell to the lot of the writer
to prepare a leaflet, entitled "Historical
I l-. il . . . .
L M Si t.'hmpses', in which he Jotted down
some of the more important eve11ts that
had vividly impressed his mind in con-
nection with efforts to establish an infant college in a
new state. While a quarter of a century in the life of
an institution of learning is a brief period, yet the
twenty-iive-year-old college seemed to the writer to have
attained to some degree of maturity.
There have been no startling developments since the
quarter centennial anniversary, but a good, healthy
growth, accompanied by such minor changes as the alert
educational mind would naturally make. Courses of
study have been enlarged to take in some new depart-
ment, or put emphasis upon some branch not formerly
taught, or taught to a less extent. College classes are
somewhat larger. The corps of instructors has had a
slight increase. The military department has given
place to more varied athletics. The music department
has undergone some transformations. Affiliated schools
and denominational colleges in the state have drawn
nearer together. There has been a general advance
along educational lines, and Doane College has had its
share in this advance.
For a single eve11t, paramount interest, no doubt.
attiaelies to the death of Mr. Thomas Doane, after whom
the college was named. He had just attended the quar-
ter centennial anniversary, and had taken part in the ex-
ercises. Those who heard him will not soon forget his
modest words relative to his own distinguished career:
"Fifty-tive yea1's ago I began both the study and
practice of my profession at the same time. " ' " In
the prosecution of my profession I have often felt the
want of further training, and this, perhaps, has led me
to desire for all others a better chance than I have had.
" " ' There has often come to me the unhappy feeling
that I might have accomplished more in my profession,
or for the general good, had I insisted for myself upon a
His love for the college finds beautiful expression:
"The college has been the object of my warmest af-
fection, and such time and thought and money as I have
been able to devote to it have been freely and lovingly
given. " " "' And let me add that whatever of time
or thought or money or love I have invested in this col-
lege it has paid me better dividends than any other of
my investments, wherever made, and with smaller loss.
It is llly sincere hope that this quarter centennial occa-
sion may contribute much to the good of tl1e college, and
to the courage and hopefuluess of you all."
No one thought at the time that this was to be his
farewell address. He seemed good for ten years more.
He had returned to his home, Charlestown, Massa-
chusetts, and was visiting friends in YVest Townshend,
Vermont, when he was suddenly taken ill, Zllld died, after
a short sickness, October 22, 1897. It was fitting that 11e
should pass away among tl1e rock-ribbed hills and amid
tl1e trees l1e loved so well, the lnaples all aglow with
autumn's choicest colors. His grave is in the old family
burying ground at Orleans, Massachusetts, on a com-
manding knoll, which looks out over a pleasantly diversi-
tled landscape and the great sea, where ships pass and
repass by night and day, as mysteriously as human lives.
Very closely connected with Mr. D0ane's death was
the successful movement to carry the college endowment
up to 2t5150,000. At the twenty-fifth anniversary the col-
lege entered upon a financial campaign to raise 325,000
by the close of the nineteenth century. Mr. Doane added
a pledge of 34,000 to the many thousands he had already
given. One year later it appeared that the effort to raise
325,000 was not meeting with the hoped-for success.
Little more than 358,000 had been pledged. College in-
debtedness was increasing, and had reached the sum of
SHi11.S00. A special committee was constituted December,
1898, which proceeded to formulate a new and larger
plan. The permanent funds of the college at that time
were 2Hi09,774.61.. It was proposed by the committee, in
the two years intervening before December 31, 1900, to
pay otf the indebtedness of t511,S00, to raise 336,000 to
meet the estilnated current expenses for the two years,
and to increase the permanent fund by SE1,28,025.39. This
last named sum added to the permanent fund in hand
would carry the endowlnent up to 3150,000. '
Every effort was put forth to secure this result. De-
cember 31, 1900, the college treasurer had received from
all sources, cash and pledges, a little more than half the
needed amount, but a proposition had come from the
heirs and trustees of Mr. Doane's estate, subject to the
sanction of the supreme court of Massachusetts, offering
the college certain properties worth about 370,000 This
would be in full settlement of what the college would
ultimately receive from the estate, and was thought by
those who k11ew Mr. Doane best to be what he would
have desired if he could have seen the financial emer-
gency. The college accepted the offer December 30, 1900,
and the sup1'eme court gave its sanction February 6, 1901.
In this way wasbrought to a glorious consummation the
largest financial effort the college has ever attempted.
Subsequent events have shown that the college was very
wise in accepting the proposition of the heirs and trus-
tees of the estate. 1
From another estate, that of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. F.
Lee, of Camp Creek, Nebraska, the college has received
the largest bequest that has ever come from any strictly
Nebraska source-somewhat more than 57.000, Over
and above the mere money value that attaches to this
generous gift is tl1e encouraging.thought that Nebraska
is coming to its owng that witl1 the years and with in-
creased means it will-generously endow its own institu-
tions. The college greatly needs further endowment and
more college buildings. May a knowledge of what others
have done in the last seven years be an inspiration to
students, trustees and Nebraska friends to make the next
seven years still more fruitful.
D. B. PERRY.
THE STATE SECRETARY.
mmlgmmmym E ARE glad to
it ' give place
here for the
picture of the
new state see-
retary of the
college, and a brief word re-
garding him and his work.
Mr. Il. l.'. Fairchild, of the
Class of 1900, has been
ehosen for the position, enter-
ing upon his work at the he-
ginning of the present year.
He is eminently fitted for the
l work to which l1e has been
appointed, both in n a t u r al
ability and by training. The youngest member of his
4-lass, he graduated with high honors, and soon after he
WTP - 1
went to Turkey as a teacher in the college at Smyrna.
,Here he has passed the three years since his graduation,
teaching and spending his vacations traveling quite ex-
tensively in Palestine, Asia. Minor and parts of Europe.
Isle has been a careful student of the peoples and condi-
tions in the countries visited, and brings home with him
a store of interesting and useful information. '
Mr. Fairehildls work will be that of making the' col-
lege and its work better known throughout the state, and
helping young people to find in Doane tl1e needed train-
ing and development of a. college course. He enters
upon his duties with determination and zeal, prompted
by a genuine interest in the better welfare of those for
whom the work is designed. YVe bespeak for him suc-
cess, a success which will increase the attendance at
Doane and be a pleasure and profit to all who come
within the sphere of his acquaintance and influence.

Bevan FGMUXLIU was organized at the time of the
founding of the college in 1871. The fraternity is in a flourish-
ing condition. The present membership consists of thirty-eight
per cent. of the Senior class. The Junior class promises fifty per
cent. of its members. this showing n. probable growth of twelve
per cent. Concerning the lower classes, it is impossible to pre-
dict infalliblyg yet it may safely be asserted that the outlook
has never been brighter.

preceded by a course at Franklin, are considered sutiiclent to
thoroughly mold the character of its members. The Seniors
may be depended upon to cleave to the fraternity, bound 1511

W F all the classes. in Doane College not one
holds a more important place than does
the Sophomore. Members are found ill
oliices and positions of responsibility and
' trust in every department of the college.
We are foremost ill literary work,1'hilo-
inathea, the largest and most tlourishing
society i11 Doane, claims for its president a Sophomore.
For Pi Kappa Delta, one of the secret debating clubs, we
furnish the chief executive. .The president of Ilesperia,
whojnstconipleteda term of oflice,is one ofour members.
The Christian associations have found among us
earnest a11d willing workers. Both Y. M. C. A. and Y.
NV. C. A. have chosen their presidents for tl1e ensuing
year from among the Sophomores. The Athletic Board
of Control, composed of two representatives of the fac-
ulty and two of the student body, has for one of its stu-
dent rellresentiatives a, Sophomore.
The faculty, as well as the students, have looked to
ns for helpers. The position of assistant treasurer, con-
ferred npon one of our boys while he was yet a Fresh-
man, has been given him again in his Sophomore year,
and where could one more faithful be found than our
class president, who has served the college as bell ringer
for two years?
Besides those who are rendering special services to
Doane We have a number of persons who are contribut-
ing to her fame. Unr debaters have many times wo11
laurels for her, and one of these dehate1's, to the writer's
knowledge, has never bee11 defeated. Our Dutch pianist
and French soloist are especially noted. In athletics we
have taken high rank, and lll'0 well represented upon both
football and baseball teams.
Then, too, as all have noticed, there are those in our
class who are inclined to specialize in particular profes-
sions. One of these, a. would-be geometrieian, is devot-
ing his attention to the discovery of new and possible
relations of the Cone. He is making rapid progress, hav-
i11g already surpassed a certain Junior, who has for two
years given his attention to a very similar subject. Fur-
thermore, one of our mnnber has already entered the
eonnnbial state, and we have Moore ready to enter.
NVhile it is true that we are, in the main. a serious-
minded class. it is also true that we are sociable, and
that we have done much to to promote good feeling
among our fellow students. Surely no one will doubt
this claim, who knows how royally we entertained the
Freshmen only two weeks after their arrival at Doane.
Ont of the genuine goodness of our hearts we permitted
their Hag to float over Merrill hall for one whole day.
No Person molested it. 11ot even our Medlar. This altru-
istic spirit on our part has especially endeared ns to the
hearts of both students and faculty.

THE FRESHMAN CLASS, FROM THE STANDPOINT OF A JUNIOR.
l' was thought desirable that the account
, f of the Freshmen should be given as they
see themselves. Accordingly, certain
members of the class of ,07 were 15011-
sulted, but their ideas were too limited,
quantitatively and qualitatively, to
adorn the pages of the Annual. The
class will have to submit, therefore, to having their his-
tory related from the point of view of one who, in chapel,
sits in the row farthest from the notoriousffback seat."
That first morning last September, as we smilingly
watched the Freshmen wander to their seats, our Junior
amazement was aroused by observing that the number
of boys was twice the number of girls. This unusual
state of affairs has occasionally caused a heavy heart
among the members of the class. YVhen there is a party
on hand, and the boys draw the girls' names according
to the ancient custom, some popular youth is likely to
draw a blank, while some fortune-favored lad gloats over
his miserable classmate of the blank, and is filled with
joy and satisfaction at being able to accompany a dainty
maiden to the party. Poor boy with the blank, may for-
tune cease to frown, and soon smile upon you!
Before the first week had ended we began to hear
groans and sighs from the Freshmen. WVe learned that
the cause was "Hamlet" Pityingly we gazed upon them,
and yet with a gleam of satisfaction in our eyes-we rc-
membered our own agonies.
All thoughts of 1-lamlet, with his 'fslings and ar-
rows," were etlaced by the fall reception. Here, in spite
of their efforts to appear at ease, and in spite of efforts
of the Juniors to relieve their embarrassment, they
plainly rejoiced when the 10-o'cloek bell rang. Their
next social function occurred at the end of the second'
week, when they were entertained by the Sophomorcs.
They do not often mention the souvenirs they received on
that occasion, but they have not forgotten. Since then
they have had several enjoyable parties of their own.
Following the example of other Freshmen, they
have unfurled their flag above Merrill hall, in the dead of
night. The first attempt was unsuccessful, the flag dis-
appeared before breakfast. The second time it was more
carefully guarded, and llauntcd in the breeze for a whole
day! NVe have heard that on that day the apparition
of a. Freshman foot appeared through the ceiling of the
chemical laboratory, leaving therein a very substantial
hole. To tell the truth, hard as it is for a Junior, they
have left their mark throughout the whole town. On
every sidewalk one may see the figures "'07" artistically
painted in yellow and white.
As yet, no geniuses have appeared in this class.
Perhaps the plunge into algebra and "Hamlet" has dc-
layed their development. It is hoped that the craning
of necks in bird study and the continuation of "Lit" in
the form of Browning, will soon restore them to their

Cads, seen here a11d there, may not be studying birds in
the required mannerg they may not be making astronom-
ical observations in the evening according to prescribed
rules, yet the enjoyment is doubtless as great as in the
regular work, and the extra credits may be given later.
WVhile the academy has all the advantages of the col-
lege. it still preserves its distinct character. The Doane
Owl devotes two pages to the interests of the academy.
Its students maintain a literary society and debating
club, similar to those of the college. For this spring, de-
bates have been arranged with l"ranklin lllld NVeeping
Water Academies. College track work is loyally np-
held by the academy, though the Cads enjoy their own
special "meets" and baseball games. Last year a dual
meet was held with the Crete High School team. The
academy boys won with the score of 69 to 39. 'Baseball
is now the rage. A nine was organized, which chal-
lenged the Freslnnen for the first match of the season.
Though the score was 12 to 13 in favor of tl1e Freshmen,
the courage of the Cads is by no means daunted, nor is
their enthusiasm a bit lessened. A game with the Wil-
ber nine willsoon give them another chance to test their
skill. More than one athlete of the academy deserves
to wear the honor "D" on his sweater. YVe are sure
that these students, famed as they are for their work in
the class room, on the debating platform. and on the
athletic field, will become the most popular, brilliant and
energetic college students of the future. -

ANY course of study from "prep" to

I, drill. for a student's worth. as well as
gl the ettect of his training is estimated
largely by his literary productions and
by his ability to speak well. During the
academy course this drill should be es-
pecially emphasized, for many students are unable to
co11ti11ue at school, and those who do continue find it ad-
vantageous to have laid the foundations for speaking
during their preparatory years.
Palladia is a training school for academy students.
This year she has a memberslnip of thirty-six. The at-
tendance is good and the programs presented are inter-
esting and instructive. The society lays much emphasis
upon debate, and never fails to have at least one on the

by the reading of 'tThe Buglej' recitations, music, select
readings, extemporaneous speaking and parliamentary
drill. Sometimes the society resolves itself i11to two par-
ties and engages in a spelling contest or a figuring match.
Palladian members have many times won honors for
their society. First illld second places in an elocutionary

The society engages in annual debate with l1'ranklin

In those old days, in the days of Doane, Mitchell and
Show, Myrtle Bridges, Jennie Wilbur and Helen Doane,
and a score of other knights and ladies of the "golden
days," Hesperia led a most strenuous life. Debating and
parliamentary drill had a large place on every pl'0-
gramme, and the fines and punishments imposed for care-
lessness or failure to perform tl1e part assigned were
very heavy and severe. For instance, upon refusal to
debate, one was compelled to stand before the club for
three minutes with his thumb in his mouth, and for tardi-
ness a fine of one dollar was cxacted. The means em-
ployed, however, produced the required results, for many
preachers, teachers, literary writers, editors and orators
have gone forth to their life work better fitted because
of this rigid training received in Hesperia.
Through its energetic influence the Doane Owl came
into existence on March 6, 1874. Hesperia's thought and

wisdom nourished this wise bird for nineteen years, when
its management was given over to an Owl Board, chosen
from the student body. But the society often furnishes
the editor-in-chief, and last year the entire board was
composed of its members. It was also the originator of
the College Lecture Course.
Hesperia was instrumental in organizing the Doane
and Nebraska State Oratorieal Associations. Hesperian
orators have won in eleven of the nineteen Home con-
tests held in Doane, and in ten of the sixteen Dawes
It has ever been the aim of the club to assist in adding
books to the college library. lts first gift for this pur-
pose amounted to 3575.
On June 23, 1881, Hesperia held a reunion for its
old members, and in November, 1898, celebrated its
twenty-fiftll anniversary. At this time many of the for-
mer members returned to their Alma Mater, and others
sent greetings. .
Although other societies and organizations are now
doing much of the work that was formerly accomplished
by Hesperia, this society still lives among us as a strong
factor in our education, and is loved and respected as an
elder sister, who has led us into broader fields of learn-
ing and achievement.

Difficulties were encountered from the very start.
There was already a strong, energetic soeiety in college,
and good workers were hard to find. The few determined
ones, however, never lost confidence in the ultimate sue-
eess of their plans, and, as a result, Philomathea stands
to-day as the ftmonument of their earnest efforts" and the
promoter of helpful literary work. 4

were willing to work and set others to work, but the
members were 11ot so enthusiastic. The ideal relation
of member to officer, and to the soeiety, was not main-
tained. Effective, harmonious work was no longer pos-
sible. But why dwell on this dark side, when there are
more pleasing scenes ahead?
NVhat joy filled our hearts when we returned in the
fall of 1903, to find earh Philomathean suddenly seized

. llns was not the Xoung People s Society
of Christian Endeavor, so well known to-
day, but was an organization purely local
in character. In 1880, two years after its
inception, this society became the Young Men's Christ-
ian Association of Doane College. One of the aims em,-
bodied in tl1e constitution of the earlier association was
"to do all possible to promote the cause of Christianity
in the college, and wherever the influence of the college
extends." This became the ambition of the new organ-
In the summer of 1901 the college showed its desire
to encourage the Young Men's Christian Association by
fitting up a large and attractive association room on the
second floor of Merrill hall. Here we hold our regular
Sunday afternoon meetings.
The association supports three Bible study classes
and a mission study class. Since 1892 our association
has each year been represented by at least one delegate
at the Student's Summer Conference, held at Lake Ge-
neva, VVisconsin. This year we were represented by five

The union work of the Young Men's and the Young
XVomcn's Christian Associations is a strong factor in the
Christian life of the college. Besides the social events
planned and carried out by the two associations, the
student prayer meeting, held on Tuesday evening of
each week, is planned for by a joint committee.
The Young Men's Christian Association endeavors
to make its work practical as well as spiritual. In the
fall, members of the reception committee meet the new
students at the train, escort them to their rooms and
do much to make the stranger feel that his "lines are
cast in pleasant places."
It is the Christian young men of Doane College that
are in the lead to-day. lt is the Y. M. C. A. boys who
carry the honors of the class room and the athletic Held,
it is the Y. M. C. A. boys who can be depended on when
some good work needs encouragement and support.

lege and wherever the influence of the college extends."

Young Women's Christian Associa-
KW: tion of Doane was organized in 1880,
go 1' Zllld was the first organization of its kind
X 15 in the state. At first short meetings
-'is ,ffl-.' were held daily in the chapel, but it
was soon decided to have a longer serv-
ice, holding it but once a week. Money
was raised to furnish a room on the third fioor of Gaylord
hall, and this became the regular association room. Two
years ago the need of a larger room became very urgent.
The college kindly enlarged the old one, tlms providing
the association with a suitable and attractive 11ome.
Sufficient money was soon raised by the members and
friends of the association to purchase suitable f'urnish-
ings for it. The room was all that could be desired when
the new chairs, table and rugs were in place, the windows
pretfily curtained and the pictures hung. XVhen the
room was ready for use special dedication services were
conducted by our state secretary. About this time an
interested friend presented the association with a small
library, and a book-case was at once added to the furnish-
ings of the room. The library is being increased each
year by gifts and by our library fund.
For some years the association has been sending two
delegates each year to the Students' Summer f'onference,
which is held at Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Last summer,
for the first time, three were sent. In 1901 the associa-
tion sent one delegate to the Students' Volunteer Con-
ference, at Toronto, Canada. Our college is also usually
well represented at the state conventions, and we had the
honor of entertaining the convention in the fall of 1898.
To encourage systematic study of the Bible the asso-
ciation offers three Bible study courses, which are well
supported by the young women of the school. A mission
study class holds meetings each week.
At the opening of the school year a reception is
given by the Young XVomen's and the Young Men's
fihrisfian Associations, to welcome the newcomers and
give them an opportunity to meet the other students. A
similar reception is given after the Christmas 1'ecess.
Hut the good influences of our association life do
not end with college days. Each year, on the Day of
Prayer, letters come to us from the young women who
have gone out from Doane, and who treasure among their
fondest lnemories some of the hours spent in 'fthe little
upper room." iVords can not measure the influences
that have gone out from this association to sweeten and
bless the lives of so many noble women. "Canst thou
bind the sweet influences of the 1'leiades?" Job, 38:31.

EI the year 1885, Doa11e students. began
it " to realize their need of an oratorleal as-
sociation, and on March 12th organized
the Doane College Oratorieal Associa-
' ' tion. Soon after this the necessity of a
state organization became apparent, and
the Hesperian Literary Society was in-
strumental in organizing the Nebraska State Oratorieal
Association. This organization, now including i11 its
membership Bellevue, Grand Island, llastings and Doane
Colleges, and Creighton, Cotner and XVesleyan Univer-
sities, has done much to develop a great interest for ora-
tory in Nebraska.
Doane College holds a very worthy record in ora-
tory. One of her students, A. V. House, won the first
contest of the inter-collegiate association, held at Hast-
ings, April 5, 1885, and only twice has she taken a place
lower than third.
From year to year these state contests have aroused
great interest, raising the standard of oratory until it
has become no small honor to represent Nebraska in the
inter-state contest. Six times Doane students have had
The custom of holding inter-collegiate debates has
existed for several years in Doane. These are of great
benefit to those engaging in them. Last year a rousing
debate was held with Creighton University at this place.
The deeision was two to one in favor of Doane. This
year Messrs. C. 12. Perry and J. M. Graybiel represented
us in a debate with York College. The question was:
"Resolved, That the history of trade unionism in the
United States for the past twenty-tive years shows a
general tendency detrimental to the best interests of
the country." The York dehaters, Miss Blanche Baggs
and Mr. D. W. Davis, upheld the negative. The decision
of the judges was in favor of Doane. A return debate
has been scheduled for May 20th at York, when the "Pan-
ama" question will be discussed. Let us have more of
this friendly rivalry in debates. It not only benefits the
participants, but brings the respective colleges into
closer touch with each other.

In November, of 1001, the Hcsperiau Club undertook
the responsibility of arranging a lecture course, to be
given that winter. The president of Hesperia, C. O.

hearty support. The three numbers of the course were

cided to extend the control of the lecture course to the
members of both literary societies, Hesperia and Philo-
mathea. Mr. llouston was then elected manager for the
year 1902-03. The numbers presented for this winter
were very similar to those of the year before and equally

SCHOOL OF MUSIC.
Ein. LIE Doane College School of Music was
' established twenty-four years ago. It
had at first but one teacher, few stu-
dents. and meagre equipments, but, like
' ' the other departments of Doane, it has
had a steady and continuous growth.
At present the School of Music 11as
three teachers. Prof. NV. G. Reynolds, who has studied
under some of the best musicians of Europe, is director,
and instructor in voice, piano and pipe organ. He is not
only a composer and a musical artist of very high rank,
but a thorough and successful teacher, as is shown by
the increasing popularity of the department and the ad-
vancement a11d skill of his pupils. Mrs. Jennie Chamber-
lin Hosford assists in the piano teaching, and Mr. Rob-
ert L. llick instructs in violin and violincello, and has
charge of the classes in the theory of music.
The enrollment in the School of Music is this year
one hundred Zllld seventy-eight, the largest in t11e history
of the college. Un account of the increase in students
the college has found it necessary to purchase four new
pianos, and plans for a new building, which shall be par-
tially for the department's use, are IIONV under considera-
The department has been the means, during the last
few years, of securing a number of l1ig11-grade musical
entertainments for the benefit of the college students
and the citizens of Crete. Mrs. Lillian French Read, a
well-known soprano soloist of Chicago, gave a song re-
cital last year. Her work was so much appreciated that
she was asked to return this year for a similar entertain-
ment. Mr. XVaugh Lauder gave a lecture-piano recital
on February 26th. which was also much appreciated.
THE ORATORIO SOCIETY. .
The Oratorio Society is organized for the purpose of
studying and presenting the best choral works. In for-
mer years such productions as Dudley Buck's "Triumph
of David," Gaul's "Holy City," and Gounod's "Gallia,"
have been given. This year Dudley Buck's "Coming of

nmsic. The number who are making use of the advan-
tages which it oil'ers is larger this year than ever before.
The present enrollment is seventy-three, while last year
it was only forty-nine.
The society is under the direction of Professor Rey-
nolds. Its popularity and the success of its entertain-
ments are largely due to his skill as a conductor and an
interpreter of music. If it is as successfully managed in
the future as it is at present it will continue to be a
prominent factor in Doane College life.
The G-iris, Glee Club was organized in the fall of
1000, with sixteen members. The first meetings were
held at the home of Mrs. J. N. Bennett, its founder and
leader. The club's debut was made at a meeting 'of Hes-
peria. By the spring of 1901 its fame had spread be-
yond Crete, and the girls were invited to sing before the
Blue Valley Association of Ministers at Fairmont. June
11, 1001, was the date of her first concert appearance.
In the fall of 1902 Prof. YV. G. Reynolds consented
to take charge of the organization, which, after some
consultation among those especially interested, was
named the Eutcrpean tllee Club. At present the club
has a membership of eighteen, five of whom were charter

THE cotuzoiz BAND. p
A good band is an organization which does much to
enliven college life and arouse college spirit. Doane has
such a band. Indeed, it can, with little fear of contra-
diction, be said that Doane has the best college band in
the state. It now numbers sixteen members, every one
of whom is a player of no little experience. The success
of the organization is, in large measure, due to the faith-
ful, enthusiastic work of the leader, Robert Dick.
Throughout the year two hours a week have been spent
in practicing high-grade music, and enjoyable evening
concerts are being given on the campus again this spring,
as they were two years ago.

After the memorable football victories of '94 and '95,
which stamped the Doane College team as the champion
of four states, there came a lull i11 the battle on the grid-
iron. The fatal accident of 1996 put an end to football
at l loane, and for a short time it was strictly prohibited
by the faculty. Tillie went on and 1896 was fading from
the memory. Every fall brought new material, eager
for football, 1898 saw two class ggamesg the faculty con-
ceded that much. The fall of 1899 opened with pros-
pects for a winning' teamg but the "ruling force" would
not yet permit games to be scheduled with outside in-
stitutions. The boys, however, were determined. For
two years they had been without football, and, since 110
form of athletics could be introduced to equal the "good
old gamef' the time for its revival had come.
A month after school opened in the fall of 1899 a

ball and submit them to the faculty for approval or dis-
On October 19 a jubilee was held by the boys to
celebrate the revival of football. The faculty had de-

Accordingly a captain and manager were elected. The
boys W0l'C eager to play, but few had had actual football
experience. Consequently a task was before them-a
team had to be developed out of the new material.
As the lack of space forbids us to give a complete
account of the games as they we1'e played i11 the follow-
ing years, we must be satisfied with only a brief mention
of the successive football seasons, with the tabulated
Tl1e season of 1899 began with a defeat, but that
was not discou1'aging. S. L. Mains, the "star half-back"
of '94 and '95, volunteered l1is services as coach, and as
a result the other two games were won. Thus ended
the first year of football after its reinstatement. Mr.
Mains was 11ow secured as regular coach for 1900, and
a successful season followed. The most significant game
of this fall was that played with Tarkio College. A
squad of sixteen men went to Missouri "to be shown."
And they were. Only 43-0. There is no more to say.
The other three games of the season were easily won.
Football interests were becoming organized, and the
fall of 1901 pointed to better results than had been
gained during the preceding two years. During this time
the new material had undergone a thorough "work-out,',
and for the coming season good results were expected.
The coach for this fall was Hughes, of lVashburn College.
He had played tackle on his college tealn, and conse-
quently tackled the proposition at Doane, proving to be
an able tackler. Snap and determination characterized
the Doane team all the season. No team except the
University of Nebraska was able to check its advance.
Seven match games were played and only one was lost,
rolling up the total score of 90 to the opponent's 40.
Previous to the fall of 1902, the State Football
League, consisting of the Lincoln Medical School, Grand
Island, Hastings, Bellevue and Doane Colleges had been
organized. This gave an additional incentive for hard
work on the field, and practice began with panting, run-
ning and falling on the ball. J. A. Pipal, of Beloit Col-
lege, came early as coach, and took charge of the squad.
Much was done early in the season, for by the middle of
October the team had reached its highest point in train-
ing. This was shown in the game with Creighton Uni-
versity. The result was 12-5 in favor of Creighton, but
Doane had made a reputation. NVhen the team passed
over the gridiron they were laughed at a11d called "little
high school boys,'i and asked what business they had
with the big university team? But the spectators were
breathless and tl1e Creighton team surprised after the
first few plays. The "little high school boys" took the
ball from o11e e11d of the field to the other, only checked
in its advance by a fumble near the opponent's goal line.
During the game the 'flittle line" had displayed a mag-
nificent exhibition of pluck and determination against
the heavy Creighton plunges, and the little ends had pre-
vented their famous quarter-back fake, while the "little
back-field" had earned for themselves the name, the
"whirlwind backs from Doane." The season ended with
three games won a11d three lost. But time was passing,
and 1903 approached.
Milo O. Smith, of Grinnell, la., was secured for this
fall's coaching, and our success was due largely to his
efforts. The feature of the season was the game with
Hastings. The score was 73-0, the largest score ever
made by a Doane team. Out of eight games played one
was lost, one tied, and six won, piling up a score of 210
to the opponents' 23. Below are given the captain and
manager of each team, with the result of each game, be-
ginning with the fall of 1899.

THE NEW ATHLETIC FIELD.
mtput-GVGYW ,L HE athletic field, which w'as constructed
during the summer of 1902, deserves a
more extended consideration than space
wil-l permit, and to be spoken of ill bet-
? 'S ter words than we are able to command.
It has received many words of praise for
its convenience and adaptation to ath-
letic sports during the two years it has been in use. The
students seem never to tire of expressing their apprecia-
tion and thanks for this splendid, well-located field, and
for the encouragement' given to athletics by its construe-
The field is located about one hundred yards east of
Merrill hall, where its proximity to the gymnasium serves
to emphasize its worth. It contains an excellent foot-
ball gridiron, a smooth baseball diamond, a 350-yard
circular track, and a 120-yard straight-away.
The grading of this field alone cost nearly one thou-
sand dollars. XVhen the grand stand is built a11d every-
thing is completed, it will be as convenient and pleasant
an athletic park as can be found in the state. It stands
as an evidence of the efforts of Doane College to turn
out men who are strong physically, as well as intellectu-
ally and morally.
Active track work began at Doane with the organ-
ization of the State Athletic Association, February, 1898.
Under the direction of Captain Emery Ellis and Man-
ager Lucius F. Reed, Doane took part in three meets,
one with Yankton tSouth Dakotaj Collegeg one with
South Dakota State University, and the state meet, at
Lincoln. Only the Nebraska University, XVesleyan Uni-
versity and Doane College were represented, though
Hastings College also belonged to the association.
Doane received third place. At this time J. C. Noyce
made a state record for Doane, which is still unbroken,
that of 4 minutes. 463- seconds. for the mile run.
In the spring of 1899 Emery Ellis was re-elected cap-
tain, and Frank Stephens chosen manager. The first
meet of the year was with Hastings College, May 12th.
Doane lost-45-73. All energy was then turned toward
the state meet, which was to be held in Crete, May 27th.
But, alas! Doane again won third, and last, place. De-
feat, however, only increased the team's desire to win
next time, and caused them to work harder than ever
before for the coming year.
The season of 1900 opened with Harry Bates as cap-
tain and Ray Craig as manager. Arrangements were
made for two dual meets and the state meet. The first
TRACK TEAM, 1903
meet was held with Hastings College, May 5th, and lost
--60-47. The second was with the Tabor College, this
was won-53-51. York College was admitted to the state
association this year, increasing the membership to five
schools. At the inter-collegiate meet, at XVL-sleyan,
Doane won second place. This was a satisfactory year,
and very encouraging to the team.
The spring of 1001 approached, illld with it came the
promise of a better team than ever before. As soon as
the weather permitted out-door practice was substituted
for the in-door work, which had been kept up all winter.
The first meet was held at Crete with the Lincoln High
School. The contest was lost by two seconds and one-
third, each team wim1i11g six firsts. The Hastings team
was met o11 its own grounds, May 10th, and defeated-
64-44. A meet with the State University was lost by the
narrow margin of 575-503.
May 25th, the day set for the state meet, was cold
and windy. Nevertheless, it found all of the associations
except Hastings, at York, ready for the contest. Be-
sides the competition for the championship a silver cup
had been offered to the winning team by the Farmers
and Merchants' Insurance Company of Lincoln. The
races were rung the meet was over, the cup was Doaneis.
1-Iow proud the boys felt! How anxious to get back to
tl1e hearty welcome awaiting them at home! The ban-
quet given i11 their honor will not soon be forgotten. One
l1u11dred and twenty-five people gathered around t11e ta-
bles i11 the Gaylord hall dining room to celebrate the
victory. Amid great applause the cup was brought in,
and presented to Manager Bates by President Perry.
In the next meet, with Tabor College, May 31st,
Doane won every iirst, the score standing at S3-24. Dur-
ing tl1is season track athletics reached the highest point
of development i11 the history of the college. For tl1e
first time the state championship had been won. Seven
records were broken. Captain Fuhrer felt that the 1nen1-
bers of his team deserved the praise which was so heart-
ily bestowed upon them..
Jolm Fuhrer was re-elected captain, and Jay F.
Haight chosen manager for the spring of 1902. The
season opened with the defeat of the Hastings team, May
2d-73-34. May 10th, Doane lost to the University-
57-51. A week later the state meet was held at Lincoln,
and Doane and the University were the only competing
teams. Doane lost-40-68. The last meet of the year
was on the home ground, with Tarkio College. It was

Baseball was not played very systematically at
Doane until the spring of 1904. The team of 1003 played
four lnatch games and made a respectable record for
itself, although it was playing at the risk of being pre-
vented by the board of control, for this board, which
controls athletics at Doane, had not yet recognized base-
ball as one of the leading and necessary branches of ath-
letics. The attention baseball received in the early '80's
gradually had given way to strong interest in track work
during the latter part of the '00's. Track athletics once
established, it was ditlicult for baseball to receive the
necessary support, for to successfully carry on both track
work and baseball was thought to be an impossibility.
But the revival of baseball during thc last few years in
all parts of the United States did not pass Doane without
leaving its etfect. Baseball enthusiasts increased and
0ltllll0l'0d for recognition from the body controlling ath-
letics. This body, in the early spring of 1904, granted
the privilege to have an organized baseball team, man-
aged on a scientific and systematic basis. Rules and
regulations were adopted, by which the baseball and
track teams might use the same field without conflicting
in practice. Baseball has thus secured a solid footing
at Doane. The "honor D" is awarded each member of the
team, thus putting them on an equality with the mem-
bers of the track and football teams.
During the spring of 1003 two match games were
played with XVesleyan University. The first game was
won, S-7. The second one lost, S-1. A game was lost to
tiotner University, 2-4, and the game with the Crete team
was won, 11-7. W. E. il'rice, captain, and E. C. Potts,
manager, had thus successfully started baseball, and its
recognition in 1904 resulted.
For the season of 1904 E. C. Potts was elected cap-
tain and T. I. Dutch manager. The following schedule
has been arranged:
Crete vs. Doane, April 19, at Crete.
Cotner vs. Doane, May 9, at Crete.
Bellevue vs. Doane, May 16, at Bellevue.
Tabor vs. Doane, May 17, at Tabor.
University ot South Dakota vs. Doane, May 18, at Crete.
Bellevue vs. Doane, June 4, at Crete.
Wesleyan vs. Doane, June 11, at Crete.
In 1880 Doane College was moved from the old acad-
emy building to "Sunset Ridge," and in that same year
tennis was first played by Doane students. An associa-
tion was organized and a court laid out just south of
Merrill hall. The game soon became so popular that
four courts were needed to accommodate those who de-
sired to play.
Soon Doane began to take part in the state inter-
collegiate tennis tournaluents, and has the enviable ree-
ord of never having been beaten in these contests. Not
only did Doane always take first honors, but second as
well. Indeed, the other institutions grew tired of being
beaten and refused to play with Doane's teams, and as
a result no state tournaments have been held since 1893.
For several years the holding of local tournaments kept
alive interest in the game, but being denied the privilege
of matching their skill against that of teams from other
schools, the local players gradually lost their enthusi-
asm for the game, and for three years little playing was
In the spring of 1000 interest was again awakened.
Three courts were laid out, two west of Merrill hall for
both young men and young women, and one just south
of tlaylord hall for the exclusive use of the young wo-
men. Many of the students joined the association this
year, and a great deal of playing was done.
The next year these members formed the nucleus of
a much larger club. As a result of the energetic labors
of Frank Fairchild, John Harrison and Cora XVilliams,
a thriving association was formed. A new constitution
was drawn up, new nets and balls were secured, the
courts were improved and the membership of the club
was greatly increased.
This year the club was organized with I-I. 1'. Fair-
child as president, Chas. NVentz as vice-president, and
Everett Jillson as secretary-treasurer. The fact that
these three are managing the association in itself assures
a splendid organization and very active work. Quite
early in the season committees were appointed on
grounds and membersliip, plans we1'e laid for securing
In most colleges basket ball has become very popu-
ular as an in-door game during the winter months. Our
athletes, unfortunately, have not the opportunity of play-
ing this splendid game in-doors, since the gymnasium is
too small. During o11e season only has basket ball been
played by the boys here at Doane. Upon the suggestion
of l.'resident Perry it was taken up in the fall of 1898
as a possible substitute for football, which was at that
time prohibited. Grounds were fitted up on the campus
cast of Merrill hall, and much interest was at once
shown in the game. Many exciting inter-class games
were played. In these the academy team fplease note
that the wonderful Class of 1905 was then in the acad-
emyj made an enviable record by winning every game
played with college class teams, and by defeating, as a
grand finale, a team picked from the entire college. The
college team proper played but one game, that being a
try-out against the State University athletes at Lincoln.
Our men were at a disadvantage, never having played
in-doors before, and as a consequence suffered defeat by
a. score of 50 to 7. The following year football was

cnthusiastically "resurrected,l' and basket ball at once
lost all supporters. The playing of the local high school
teams during the past season again awakened interest
in the game an1o11g our students, and, should no generous
philanthropist erect a new gymnasium upon our campus
before next winter, an endeavor will be made to secure
a hall down town, in which playing may be done, that
Doane may again have a boys' basket ball team.
The young women's gyninasium, though inconve-
nient because of low rafters and protruding beams, is
spacious enough to meet the requirements of the game.
During the past four or five years basket ball has been
played by the young women, more or less, as a part of
their gymnasium work, and frequently they have partici-
pated in exciting class games. The fact that they are
not permitted to play with teams from other schools,
however, greatly checks their enthusiasm for the game,
and. as long as this prohibition is enforced, Doane can
not have an enthusiastic or well-organized young wo-
men's basket ball team.
YOUNG WOIVIENKS OYIVINASIUIVI.
The year 1889 marks the beginning of physical cul-
ture for young women at Doane. In that year Indian
club and du1nb bell drills were first instituted, being con-
ducted by Florence XVhipple-Bennett, in the college
chapel. Two years later the fourth floor of Gaylord hall
was fitted up as a young women's gymnasium, the college
purchasing the necessary apparatus. Margaret E. Thomp-
son now took charge of the classes, and for several years
the work was carried on under her leadership. After
awhile, however, the young women seemed to lose inter-
est in the drills, and they were finally abandoned unti-l
the fall of 1900.
At that time the college secured Adelloyd YVhiting-
XVllll2llllS, who had taken special training in gymnasium
work, as instructor. Each young woman was required to
spend at least two hours per week under her supervision.
Another hour was usually spent in the Indian club and
dumb bell drills, which were 11ow revived. Basket ball
was introduced and three class teams organized. The
players took great interest in the game, and each mem-
ber of the team strove hard to gain and preserve high-
est honors for l1er own class. The ycaris work was to
close with a match game played on the lawn of "The
Grangef' and the games which were played, in order to
decide who should take part in the final contest, were
therefore of special interest. No entire team was al-
lowed to participate, the contestants being chosen from
all three teams. The iinal game was greatly enjoyed by
the few ladies who saw it, and spoke well for the ability
and skill of the instructor.
The gymnasium classes were in charge of Minnie
Guile-llrackctt for the next two years. The yelling wo-
men continued to show a lively interest in basket ball,
and many match games were played among themselves.
There were, however, no public games, and none with
players from other schools, not because the ability of
Doane's teams was doubted, Init because it was not
thought best to play for the public. Under Miss t'luile's
leadership o11e of the two required hours was often spent
in playing games or practicing on the rings.
Mary Beth NVallace is the instructor this year, and
she has carried the work to a still higher plane. As long
as the weather permitted in the fall she accompanied
the young women on hare and hound chases, or on long
tramps. Less interest has been shown in basket ball,
but special attention has been' paid to fancy marching,
and lll0l'C work has been done on the rings, and with
the Indian clubs, dumb bells and wands, than in the two
preceding years. The young women are now practicing
for an exhibition. with which they expect to close the

"Yes,,' gasps Cora, between bursts of laughter, "and

of those verbs now, can you ?"

"Yes, and then we saw Si1npson's burglar ltllIl'0l'11

"And I banged lily head on the old gas fixture that
hung there, and had to go to classes next day with a
great bump on my forehead. Ha! Ha! Poor old Simp-

"But wasn't it fortunate we had the presence of mind
to close the window behind us? Simpson was so far

I? O'er the waters of the Big Blue,
Up this lazy, flowing river
Sped the boat of John the Boatm
Who for years, as was his custom,
Rented boats for five and twenty
To the youths within the village.
Thus it was, as I have stated,
Up this river came our hero,
Came our hero and his maiden,
' In this very boat I mentioned.
On they came with words of laughter,
For their hearts were light within them,
As they sang some college ballad,
Or in laughter splashed the water.
Filled so full were they with gladness
That the perfume of the springtime
Seemed to cast its spell around them,
And the hills, the woods, the valleys
Seemed to vie with one another
As to which should be most pleasing
In the sight of these two lovers.
But the twilight gathered 'round them
And shut out the clearer vision,
Leaving them alone together,
Leaving each one to the other.
Then the maiden, leaning forward,
Op'd her lips, and spake in this wise:
"Jack, 'tis you who rings the door bell,
Calling me from work and study
To the merry council chamber,
Where we sit and talk together,
Telling stories, telling fables,
Of the tribesmen gone before us,
XVho have paused on that same threshold,
Only pausing but to enter.
"Jack, 'tis you, when school first opens,
Dons your headgear, shinguard, uoseguard
Hastens forth upon the war path
To do battle with tl1e stranger,
Dreaming of the much hard practice
And the sealps that you will gather,
And in all such sports and pastimes
You are strong a11d brave and loyal
To your chief and to your people.
"You can run, 0 Jack, 'tis proven,
For while passing through the maples,
Up along the darkened pathway,
Fast you fled and 'scaped from danger,
From the man who sees much, tells mo
To the ruler of the Wigwam,
Called by us the maiden's building,
For 'tis here their tribe is planted.
"This alone is ample reason
For my treating your advances
With a kind and gentle friendship.
"I will tell you of my brother,
He who seemed so full of promise
To my father and my mother,
Hut the hand of our Great Father
Sought to take his spirit from us
Ere the flower had srarcely budded,
Leaving us in lonely sorrow
To lament for the departed.
"Therefore, J ack, your friendship proven,
I ask you to be llly brother,
Show me here and there the pathwayg
Part the thorns, the briars and branches,
Lest my feet be caused to stumble,
Lest my steps go from t11e pathway,
From the pathway true and noble,
NVhich a loving woman travels."
TIICII the maiden ceased from speaking
For the hot blood surging upward
Tinged l1er throat, her cheeks, and forehead
Filled her with feelings different
Than her lips had just now spoken.
And the friendly clouds passed o'er them,
Shutting out the moonlight, starlight,
'Til she gained her self-composure,
For at last did Jaek break silence,
0p'd his lips, i11 this wise saying:
"U, my fair and gentle Helen,
All these words that you have spoken
Are unto my ears as dew drops
Falling onthe thirsty meadowsg
Thus my very soul hangs breathless

Since we met and talked together
Of our hopes, our plans and prospects:
But to me, 0 fairest Helen,
Your words come as comes a message
From the sunlight to the darkness.

Sought you out among so many,

DOANE'S CLASS PLAYS.
f week piogiam at Doane College each
yeai is the class play, presented by the
Senlols It IS generally "sandwiched
in" between the Dawes contest and com-
mencement day exercises, but, just as
the meat in the sandwich gives riclmess
and Havor to the whole, so the class play, with its bright-
ness and humor, makes commencement time brighter
and more enjoyable.
The custom of presenting a play at graduation. as
observed at Doane, is unique and original. It is doubt-
ful if there is another college in the YVest where a cus-
tom just like it prevails. XVith one exception, every
play given has been thc original product of Senior wit
and wisdomg and, as a rule, each member has written
the part given by him.
The place and manner of their presentation has been
especially unique and pleasing. They have all been
given in the open air, under the shade of tl1e charming
little grove east of Gaylord hall. This is, indeed, an ap-
propriate place, since rumor asserts that it was long
ago dedicated to the Muses. Here Nature has fashioned
a shady little dell, with its grassy bottom for stage, and
its gently-sloping sides for audience gallery, to be used
as a classic amphitheater.

Every great idea must have an origin. The class
play idea at Doane had its origin with tl1e Class of '96.
The classes before them were either not blessed with so
happy a thought, or, after consideration, concluded that
they were not wise enough to put it into practice. How-
ever this may be, it must be admitted that to the Class
of 'SNS both the succeeding classes and we undergradu-
ates owe much, for it is probable that no class plays
would ever have been given at Doane but for tl1e1n. Had
this been the case, the succeeding graduates would have
been deprived of the pleasure and training derived from
laying aside for a time their sombre caps and gowns,
along with their "Senior dignityj' and appearing in the
role of Zeus, Uncle Sam or Aguinaldo for the instruc-
tion and amusement of their fellow students and friends.
In the eight years since 'SNS there have been given in
all six class-day plays. The Classes of '98 and '01
thought best not to follow the example of the classes
before them in this regard. They found an outlet for
the wit and wisdom accumulated in a four years' course
at Doane in other directions. This they of course had a
right to do, since the nature of each class-day program
is left almost entirely to the discretion of the class itself.
The play written and rendered by the Class of '96
was entitled "The Trial of Men." Each member of the
class, impersonating one of the gods of ancient Greece,

appeared in the high court of Father Zeus to present
arguments for or against the preservation of tl1e l1uma11
race. Dionysus, Ilephzestus, Athena, Ares, Pluto and
Poseidon each gave reasons why lllilll was no longer
worthy of grace illld should be destroyed, while Artemis,
1'I'0lll0f1lllS, Apollo, Aphrodite and Ceres, with equal
logic a11d eloquence, pleaded for his preservation. After
each had made his plea, Father Zeus summed up the
Ell'g'll1llCI1fS pro and con, and found them, when weighed
i11 the balances of Themis, to be in favor of man.
Tl1e accompanying cut shows the class as costumed
for that occasion. It also shows fairly well the spot in
the grove where the play was rendered. Near the center
of the picture may he seen the steps i11 the hillside d0Wll
which the gods descended as they came into the court
The play given by the Class of '97 fitted in well with
the trend of public ,thought at that time. It presented,
in a pleasing and instructive manner, the various ques-
tio11s which were then before the nation. It was en-
tiled "The Troubles of Uncle Sam." YVhile that worthy
gentleman, in characteristie attire, was seated on the
portico of the NVhite House, Cuba, Armenia, Capital,
Labor, Free Silver, and other problems and difficulties
personified, appeared before him and presented, in ap-
propriate speeches, the subjects they represented. At
the end Uncle Sam gave what seemed to llilll the most
feasible methods of settling the questions.
A national problem furnished the theme for tl1e
play given by the Class of i99. They chose for their
subject "The Expansion Policy of Uncle Samf' The
characters represented were Uncle Sam, Aunt Sam,
Sammy George lVashington, f,'0llllllbli'l, Spain, Agui-
naldo, Cuba, Porta Rico, Hawaii, Dr. Expansion and
Dr. Oontraetion. The play was decidedly humorous in
character, but one interested in the trend of national
atfairs found much in it for sober thought.
The Class of '00 gave the next play. It was a humor-
ous portrayal of the experiences of a company of tourists
while making a visit to the Paris Exposition. The first
act represented the experience on board an Atlantic
steamer, the second, their fortunes on tl1e Exposition
grounds, and the third, their troubles while homeward
For wit and humor the play given in 1902 undoubt-
edly surpassed all the others. It represented the sup-
posed experiences of the class after graduation. They
decided to found a college in the Sulu Islands, and after
due preparation the institution was opened, but the dini-
culties of securing suitable endowments and the conduct
of the dusky, half-savage students soon caused its col-

Such have been the plays of the past. As to those
of the future, who can tell? It' one may judge from wise
looks and dignified hearing, the Class of ,04 will u11-

AMBLINOS OF AN ALUMNUS.

W the Union depot in Chicago this winter,
he was standing first on one foot, then
on the other, in his impatience over a
late train. I'anting,I trotted along as
best I could after his scurrying heels, un-
til they vanished inside his room at the
theological seminary. t'omfortably settled there amidst
the indeseribably picturesque confusion of his bachelor
belongings, he said:
"Frank, I often think of the remark you made once
in Browning class. 'Nothing is lost in the world. If
itts good, its useful. If it's bad, it's useful as a dreadful

For example, the much-discussed question of college
athletics. How many hundreds of letters from anxious
parents lind their way to college boys, admonishing them
to "give less time to games, which serve no real purpose,
and stick closer to studies." Despite thc wisdom of this
advice in individual cases I venture that if this alumnus,
for instance, had not begun sprinting while training for
the track and football teams, and continued it until
lmstle and dash became a mental and physical habit,
he never would have acquired the celerity and stamina
necessary to carry on twenty-one services a week in the

with such wrinkling of brow and tearing of note paper,
is not without use in after experience, for the most pro-

in undergraduate days, has written a final '7May I have

IVho will have the hardihood to deny that the abil-

quet, or the skill required to bring fudge to sweet ma-

years, diverted into another channel. performs perhaps

a daring and successful surgical operation, or wins a
seemingly 11opeless legal case.
Many an alumnus, on going out into the world, finds
that the "Grip, and Grit, and Grace" which enabled him
to cross the furthermost white line on the gridiron, are
the identical traits which enable him to make touch-
downs in business. No student who ,has ably handled
the correspondence for the track team, or safely managed
the financial end of a football season, has wasted his
time. A few years hence he will be handling business
problems in the same successful way.
I have forgotten all my class marks fthis is a wise
procedure for the average alumnusj, but I do remember
that the treasuries of the track and football teams came
out with a slight surplus instead of a deficit under my
care, and the Oratorical Association was weathered
through financial embarrassments so grievous that the
case seemed well nigh hopeless. I do not credit myself.
In every case the student body rallied loyally. But the
experience was mine, and in preparation for after life
I would rather have handled those enterprises success-
fully than to have gained a live mark in a dead language.
If I read aright between the lines of the college
catalogue, Doane hopes to fit students for the realities of
life. There is a lot of creditable work done in Doane
for which the students can not be given credit in class
marks, such as maintaining the life of the Christian or-
ganizations, the literary societies, the Athletic Associa-
tion, and getting out a Junior Annual, if you please, that
scores, nevertheless, in one's preparation for more i1n-
Something is the matter with the college where no
pranks are played, where no "outside" enterprises are
carried on. It requires spirit to do those things, and
spirit, matured and wisely guided, is the keynote of
every successful career.
In these days, when millions of dollars are spent
for advertising, it is not individual class marks that
make a college attractive to the outside world. The col-
lege that, in addition to a high standard of scholarship,
can maintain a highly moral tone, send out a persuasive
orator illld a convincing debating team, tlll'11 out intelli-
gent literary work, and win a fair share of victories
afield-this, indeed, is the college that draws.
I have visited eighteen colleges and universities.
Twelve of them are larger in equipment and attendance
than Doane. Yet if I had my first four years of college
life to live over I would choose Doane. YVhy?
The strongest course otfered by colleges is not listed
in the catalogue. This is the day of specialization. If
we expect to follow law, medicine, theology or pedagogy,
we must take a post-graduate course. The truly precious
thing that comes to us in our first four college years is
AMBLINOS OF AN ALUMNUS-Concluded.
The plaee to make this growth is not in a large uni-
versity, witl1 its distracting influences, but in a slnaller
college like Doane. "Little Doane," if you please, where
the attendance is not so large but that the welcome bur-
den of maintaining college organization falls upo11 all.
Where students and teachers become personal friends,
and, through knowing eaeh other, come to know them-
Somehow, as years go by, Doane tightens her hold

A man and a maid were strolling through a for-
bidden forest in the moonlight. A panther, seeing the
pair, rejoiced in his heart at finding them so far from
the haunts of man. He stealthily erept up behind them,
glorying in his cunning, and resolving that they should
suffer for their trespass. As he erouehed for a spring,

They were flapping their wings, and playfully splashing

a tree for refuge, and regarded the objeet of their alarm
with wonder quickly changing to seornful amusement.
The Cat-llird addressed the Robin: "That's a

THE TENTH CHANCE.
S. VERNOR and her sister, Miriam Web-
vf ster, were sitting in the parlor of a city
parsonage. It was cool there, although
the scorching rays of the sun were beat-
ing down upon the pavement. The blinds
slmt out the glare and gave to the room
the air of twilight.
The younger woman sat in a rocking chair, which
she occasionally set i11 motion by an energetic kick
against the radiator. Miriam had taken her seat here,
because, as she said, a radiator is a remarkably good sub-
stitute for a refrigerator, unless there is a raging fire in
the furnace. She was absorbed in her book, and the ever-
changing expression of her eyes and mouth hinted at an
emotional natn1'e. The chair in which Mrs. Vernor sat
did not move. Precision was in every movement of her
needle, as it passed in and out of a small blue jacket.

"I don't know what to do. Mary left yesterday, and
I intended to have a cold lunch this noon."
"Send them to the hotel."
"Impossible It is absolutely necessary for a minis-
tcrls wife to entertain, and to do it well. I must order
quite a few things."
Mrs. Veruor wrote a list with some hesitation.
"I might get some one to come in for a few hours,
and at least see that everything is served nicely."
Miriam clasped her hands in her eagerness. "Let
me do it. Just think how inconvenient to have a strange
maid. She will be sure to make some blunders or break
the ehinag and, besides, it will be economy. I shall be
a fine waitress. I have the necessary uniform-cap and
apron. Pleasef' The novel fell to the floor and she ran

suppose that I would allow my sister to act as servant?
Besides-suppose that you should meet them afterwards.
I will send Richard with a note to Mrs. Douglas. I may
be able to prevail npon her to come."
Miriam turned and walked to a respectful distance
from her sister. "Please, mam. Mrs. Cook has engaged
Mrs. Douglas for her luncheon today. XVon't you give
me a chance?
Mrs. V ernor's face did not retlect the laughter from
her sister's eyes. "Are you sure, Miriam 'P
"Yes5 I heard it over the"phone. You might as well
say yes. It will not hurt me a bit. It will be a positive
relief. Think of the wrctchedness of talking for an hour
or two with those ministers. They are probably old, fat,
bald, or dyspeptic. I can not help wondering if they
were ever young, and how any girl could fall in love with
them. Nine chances out of ten I shall never see them
again, and if I did they would not notice any resemblance
between Miriam NVebster aml Mrs. Vernor's maid. You
need not bother to say yes. I am going to pare the po-

Preparations for luncheon progressed rapidly. The

extended to Richard, for he had been found with but lit-
tle ditliculty. When told that he might wear his blue
jacket, he had made 110 objection to the errands. Not
a single article had been forgotten. Not a sack had been
broken. Ile had further facilitated matters by his de-
parture. Yet Mrs. Vernor felt a vague uneasiness as she
started for her room. Everything was moving too well.
Yielding to a sudden impulse, she stopped at the door of
Ricl1ard's room. There he stood, busily engaged in cut-
ting theibrass buttons from his jacket, and promptly
swallowing them. The mystery of the buttons and the
cause of the ill health of the Vernor's son and heir were
Richard turned, gave a final cut at a button, and
transferred it to his mouth. He gazed at his mother and
commenced upon another button.
Mrs. Vernor was not a woman to waver between sev-
eral possible modes of punishment. Richard knew bet-
ter than to make any remonstrances. Neither spoke
while he was being undressed and put to bed.
There had been only a short time allowed for dress-
ing. and that was now partly spent. Notwithstanding
the fact that Mrs. Vernor was one of the women who
have a place for everything, and everything in its place,
there was no moment of grace before the arrival of the
guests. But, in spite of visions of blood-poisoning and
of appendicitis, she was outwardly calm when she met
her guests at the door.
One of the ministers answered so well to her sister's
description that the minister's wife could hardly repress
a smile when she shook hands with him. The younger
minister proved to be the exception. "Miriam will be
sorry," tlitted through her mind as she turned to him.
The bell sounded in the dining room, and Mrs. Ver-
nor announced that luncheon was ready, with that peace
in her heart which could only be given by the confidence
that everything was as it should be. The soup was ex-
cellent, and Mrs. Vernor smiled eomplaeently as she
touched the bell for the maid.
The instant Miriam entered the door, tray i11 hand,
Mr. Vernor was on his feet.
"Gentlemen, my sister. Miss XVebster.,'

It was only a year from that June when Miriam
stood in her own kitchen.
"Fan you guessf' said the younger minister, as he
drew her to him, "what it was that flashed through my
mind when I first saw you?',
Miriam smiled and shook her head.
"I wondered if Vernor ever kissed the cook."

. A MIDNIGHT SPREAD'
HE air is tilled with the smell of boiling
W' fudge, and as the Gaylord hall clock,
way down on first floor, strikes 11. we
turn off t11e gas. The large arc light at
.IQ , l,
,lu the corner of the campus lights up the
room and causes fantastic figures to
dance upon the wall. Silence reigns su-
preme, broken only by the steady stir, stir, of the hub-
bling contents of the chafing-dish. Every slight noise
sounds like a heavy tootfall. Hark! I hear a faint step
on the stairs, and almost instinctively I dive under the
bed, which already shelters two trembling maidens. The
stirring of the fudge suddenly ceases and we hold our
breath. The step dies away, but an occasional creaking
of a board and a faint whisper, half human, half spectral,
falls indistinctly upon my expectant ear. Cold shivers
race up and down my back. I dare not move, cramped
though I am. A mouse in the wall scurries past my earg
in horror I cling to my companions in wickedness, but I
do not scramble forth, for there are things even more
to be feared than mice.
NV ith assumed boldness we finally creep from shelter
just as the weird notes announce the midnight hour. The
girl and I determine upon a bold plan. Wildly clutch-
ing each other we sally forth in stocking foot to drive
out all lurking foes. Every board creaks be11eatl1 our
weightg the old stairs seem to heave and groan over our
si11s and our hearts raise the echoes with their thumping.
Strange, unknown forms flit about, but we find no ma-
terial enemies, so back to our fudge we go.
Such a spread! The improvised table bends beneath
its load of delicacies. The sight of the tall sprays of
celery, the bowls of steaming oyster soup, and the jellies
and fruits fill every heart with joy and turn our thoughts
to the dear old home, where we ate our last Christmas
dinner. Troubles and dangers are forgotten and dark-
ness loses its terror. XVe are care-free children once
more, and life seems full of happiness and pleasure.
Our appetites satisfied at last, ghost stories are in
order. real live ghost stories, which
"NVould harrow up thy soul, freeze thy young blood,
Make thy two eyes, like stars, start from their spheres,
Thy matted and combined locks to part,
And each particular hair to stand on end,
Like quills upon a fretful porpentinc."
The room grows suddenly chill and damp, a pale
blue sulphurous smoke seems to rise, and our voices
sou11d deep and sepulchral.
As the melancholy note of 1. echoes up the empty
corridors we hie away home, and, after looking under
the bed and table and in all the drawers for spirits, we
drop to sleep, to dream of goblins, lectures and green
carpets, and wake only to hear the last bell for breakfast.
