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. ff ii' fm , ,J wi, ' x I ,i l fi ft ,lv fix The Junior Bug comes to you, in this glad month of June NV1t1l the greet- , Q yy, , ,. . - D , ' - C I - c . ,, A . .t 52,4527 , A , , ,M L I-:AJ ow 8 lil-:V.

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 steed, Gibralter. 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 see. 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, Bess. Good-bye. BELLE. 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 li 3 i I l-. il . . . . L M Si t.'hmpses', in which he Jotted down ' r 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 better trainiugft 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.

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. 21. Romfzwr Lrrimow Duns, S. B., C1'ete, Neb..

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- Lf .e 'P '1, 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. ENE rf? M377 if .. JEESMJMEN l Cx N 2 UA 'O' he ' 'ef e' 'vs , f X Q X A 1 'jf . We fp. .

Bownus 28 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. lb A stil tl ' ta ltlhtwawflgtf 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 normal condition. . 1,2 ..! 1:'l fffp , -'.,w'L,v,ff- "0 V3 G' f -1-I?'1c71l-'.vS " i'1 - 1 ' 'T 1 - ,J ' -? gf l .-w Q ' f' '. .Q -. 41 4.

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. - COLORS.

After the debate, the time is usually taken up 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 contest held during last semester were won by her rcp- resentatives. The society engages in annual debate with l1'ranklin and XVeeping XVater A cademies, and, although there is no decision of judges, there is no lack of interest and 011- thusiasm, manifested. The debate with Weeping Water Acadenly was held this year in the college chapel, o11 April the twenty-ninth. 'Palladia was represented by E. E. Dowse, L. .Dowse and YV. M. Burton. 2,-X OMICRON KAPPA.

The early years L, were spent in the library room of the 1 to pr, it-,Q Academy building, from there the soci- ety moved into t11e room now occupied by the museum in Merrill hall, thence into the Gaylord hall chapel, where it has remained with the exception of last year, which was spent in the new society room of Merrill hall. 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 Secretary, Hmm-:N MEs'roN. 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 oratorical contests. 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.

Perhaps a few of you helped 111ake up that little band of col- lege students who, some nineteen years ago, 111et together for the purpose of organizing a soeiety that would stimulate college spirit, and arouse interest in literary work among the .students 1l0t enlisted in the 1, y ,. fi- ranks of Hesperia. 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 From the first reverses eame, as well as sue- eesses. For two years past we have not lived up to the standard set for us by the charter members. Our officers OFFICERS. President, Gnolaelc R. LA Run. Vice-President, RAl.me1l S. Rm-1. Secretary, Ina B.

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 witl1 an inspiration to do better and more etlieient work! NVith greater zeal we pushed forward, with t'Loya.lty,"as our watehword--loyalty to our officers, loyalty to the so- ciety, and loyalty to ourselves. NVhile we have lost many good members by gradua- tion and withdrawal from sehool, we have been ex- tremely fortunate in seem-ing new material. At our tirst meeting this year twenty new reeruits were enlisted in our ranks. Philo will undoubtedly prosper in the future as she has in the past, for the seeretary's book is always open for the enrollment of the earnest, wide-awake stu- dent. Y. Nl. C. A. President, A. W.

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- ization. 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 of our members-some of them paying their own ex- N TIIE early days of Doane there was or- Ylix og rw ' ,V .I . . ' v w I-1. it XQI 1' Efliitwwatmlt penses. XVe se11t one delegate to the Students' Volun- teer Conference, held at Toro11to, Canada, in 1901. Four- teen of our n1embc1's attended our state convention last January. 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. Nobly has our association lived up to its aim "to do all possible to promote the cause of Christianity i11 the col- lege and wherever the influence of the college extends." Y. W. C. A.

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. U tt. It l -V ki .. 4 f N K YELL. 0, say!

Although not as old as Pi Kappa Delta, this soriety numbers among its members many men who rank high in oratory and in literary abil- ity. Inter-eolleg.riate debates form an important part in the work of Alpha Omega. Last year its members met the Palladian Som-iety of the State University in joint debate, and this year the same soeieties have planned to discuss the "Panama" question.

T11e custom of holding inter-society debates, l11t1'0- duced in former times, has continued to tl1e present time. For the past three winters Pi Kappa Delta has eligaged in debates with the Union Boys' Debating Club of tl1e State University. This year the contest was held in tl1e college chapel. The question discussed was: "Resolved, That the South is .Tustified in Disfranchising the Ne- gro." Messrs. R. C. James. J. C. McReynolds and L. 0. Pfeiffer, of the Union Boys, Debating Club, supported the aiiirmative side of tl1e question, while Messrs. George - COLOR. Royal Purple. Secretary, B. D. EvANs. La Rue, Joseph Tuma and C. W.

Instead of tl1e usual banquet held during the winter terni, this year tl1e club accepted an invitation to a re- ception at the l1on1e of Mr. Harry Bates. Everytliing was unique, to say the least, and a rare treat to all who were present.

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 FP" F . f vi i l Etlmtxwrxtl 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 this honor. 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. PROHIBITION ORATORICAL ASSOCIATION. President, T. E. SPENCER. Vice-President, H. W.

Each year a contest is held under the auspices of the local association, and the winner represents Doane at the State I'rohibition contest. Six contestants entered our first Home contest, which was held March 7, 1003. Mr. J. L. Harrison, '03, was awarded first place, and in the contest at York he won second honors for Doane. Miss Anna t'a.rlson, '04, represented us in the state con- test at Uentral City this year, receiving third place. LECTURE COURSE. Manager, B. D. EvANs. Assistant, R. L. MCMILTJAN. Secretary, FLo1zA M. WAr.nonr. 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. Carlson, was elected manager of the association. It was somewhat of a venture, but the students gave their hearty support. The three numbers of the course were Adrian M. Newens, monologistg the Excelsior Entertain- ers, and llr. John l'. ll. John. It proved a very success- ful season, the success being almost entirely due to the manager, Mr. Parlson. For the second season the members ot Hesperia de- 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 as entertaiiling. Mr. E. B. Sikes was elected manager for the year 1903-'04, The entertainments for this season were the Siegel-Meyel'-Caveny Company, Mr. Melvin Robinson, monologistg Rev. Francis Clement Kelley and Rev. Ora Samuel Gray, lecturers. This has been a very satisfac- tory year and the wish of all who attended is that the course for the coming year may be as good. owl, nomm, '03-'04 52 S - Mzxmcn A.

HE QDOANE ONVL made its first appear- anee o11 the evening of March ti, 1874, before the assembled members of Iles- peria. It was then a written paper of about sixteen pages, containing essays, poems, literary sketches and bits of humor, prepared by an editor-in-ellief illld two assistants. In the fall of 1979 the Owl became a printed paper, managed by a eorps of editors, known as the Owl Board. 'l'he lnembers of this board were chosen from Hesperia until 'lS03, when the management was given over to the student body. The Owl is not a literary magazine, yet it strives to possess high literary merit. It is not a newspaper, but the important events of the st-hool's life are ehronicled in its eolumns. And, though it has no comie supplement, the lighter side of life is not entirely eliminated from its pages. The Owl enjoys the distinction of being one of the oldest, if not the oldest, paper of its kind in the state. During the thirty years of its life it has marked a steady growth in size and worth, eonforming to the larger life of the school, and to-day it is the best it has ever been, because the college is in the most prosperous year of its life. Thus may the Owl continue to grow as the years pass by and class succeeds class at Doane. 5' , '3 5 Eftlalwsnatl W 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. lllii it? Y' 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- tion. 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 the Kingv and "The Ministry of Song" were presented to a large audience at the Congregational church. just be- fore Christmas. "The Ministry of Songi' is a poem, writ- ten by Dr. Triplett, of Crete, and set to music by Pro- fessor Reynolds. Mendelssohnis "Elijah" is now being studied by the society. and will be given, with full orchestra accompaniment during Commencement week. The Oratorio Society is open to all students of the college and academy, who have a talent for vocal COLI,I'Xll'I HAND 55 THE ORATORIO SOCIETY-Continued. 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. Tl-IE EUTERPEANS. 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 members. The following is the calendar for 1902-04: 1902. January 1, 2, 3-State Teachers' Association, Lincoln, Neb.

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.

The chairman of this board, as o11c member, is the president of the Athletic A ssociation. No contract can be made, no game played, no business trans- acted without the consent of this board, and all matters of importance must be referred to it for final decision. This is, briefly. what athletics consist of and explains the method ot' control at lboanc. FOOTBALL. 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 mass meeting of the students was held, ami a committee was appointed to set forth arg'umen1s in favor of foot- ball and submit them to the faculty for approval or dis- approval. On October 19 a jubilee was held by the boys to celebrate the revival of football. The faculty had de- cided in favor of the game. "Hurrah for the faculty." Accordingly a captain and manager were elected. The FOOTBALL--Continued. 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 results. 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- FOOTBALL-Continued. 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. FOOTBALL SUMMARY. I' L. GJ Q9 0 Q9 3?

'l'l'IAM, 19 G1 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- tion. get Etlmtwlwtlw 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. TRACK. 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 63 TRACK-Coniinued . 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 won-70-38. The season of 1003 opened with Henry Wendland captain a11d W. C. Mann manager. Almost a full sched- RECORDS OF J. W. FUHRER IN THE RUNNING HIGH JUMP Place Record Time Crete H.

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 Q BASEBALL-Continued. 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. TENNIS. 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 done. 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. TENNIS 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 BASKET 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 -Continued . , necessary funds and arrangements made for perfecting the courts and for securing all necessary equipments. A large per Ctjllt. of the students show a lively interest in the game and before the season closes t11e association will 110 doubt reach its former place of importance among our college activities. BALL 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 year's work. LITERARY. TRANSLATQON BY CO-OPERATION. ELLo, Alice! Where's Bess? o, the-1-Q Xp you are!

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.

A 77 "'r11lc IllCSEllVA'I'l0N.', 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. I gs 1 PLEASING part of the commencement NN: .'. ' 'L' , '1 tl . . . A I ' i ' ' . v X A I " 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, 96 CLASS PLAY 79 DOANE'S CLASS PLAYS-Continued. 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 of Zeus. 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 bound. 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- lapse. DOANE'S CLASS PLAYS--Concluded. The graduates last year departed somewhat from the time-honored eustolu of their predef-essors, and gave a play whit-h they themselves had not written. It was a tl1'2lllltlflZill'lO1l of Tenuysolfs f'l'rincess.', It was well rendered, and judged for artistic ll1t'l'lt was undouht- edly one of the best plays ever given at Doane. '03 CLASS PLAY. 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- doubtedly produce a play ot' which their Alina Mater will he proud.

Though at times they are so thoughtful, they ponder long and deep, A nd, lest they waste the midnight oil, they study in their sleep.

They still laugh and ridicule us, theyire mighty, so they say, - For no one dared oppose them, and the flag waved there all day.

AMBLINOS OF AN ALUMNUS. 1 1-IEN a certain Doane alumnus met me at 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 example! " "For example," he continued, kicking a pile of clothing into a corner already full, "this room is a con- stant reminder to the other fellows of what theirs should not be.

XVere I to hand in--mind you I don't say hand dow11-for the alulnni come to think of you with great respect-a little pencil talk to the undergraduates, it would be concerning "the usefulness of seemingly use- less things." 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 Chicago slums. Indeed, the composition of numerous "May I have the pleasure of your company--" notes, accomplished with such wrinkling of brow and tearing of note paper, is not without use in after experience, for the most pro- saic of business letters must be written with smoothness and graceg and many an alumnus, after diligent practice in undergraduate days, has written a final '7May I have the pleasure of your company-for life." IVho will have the hardihood to deny that the abil- ity to make a one-course midnight spread look like a ban- quet, or the skill required to bring fudge to sweet ma- turity over a lamp, may blossom later into all kinds of housewifely virtues? The spirit which nails a Fresh- man tlag to the topmast is the spirit which, in after years, diverted into another channel. performs perhaps AMBLINOS OF AN ALUMNUS--Continued. 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- portant duties. 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 character development. 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- selves. Somehow, as years go by, Doane tightens her hold upon our heartstrings. F. G. S.

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, he nmttered: "Ah! now I have eaught you. Long and patiently have I watehed to find you hereli' But that instant the man turned about, and felled the panther at a blow. The night-watehman sometimes gets his deserts. I A BlRD'S-EYE VIEW OF A FRESHMAN. A Cat-Bird and a Robin were making their early morning toilet in a tiny stream flowing through a grove. They were flapping their wings, and playfully splashing water upon each other, when the sound of twigs snap- ping in the path near by was heard. The birds flew to 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 Freshman. See her field glasses and her ear trumpet illld her bird book. Now she's looking up here. How strange it makes one feel to have those glasses turned upon him! I guess I'll skip around a little. ' A' t' See that strained expression on her face. I wonder what she would do I if should sing? t " t' Oh, that ear trmn- pett! ' ' " Ha! ha! That girl thinks I'm a meadow lark, does she? Now. give your eall. Wliy, she didn't know a Robin eould sing so sweetly. That discovery must be put into l1er note book. Let's hop along this braneh, over the stream. She is going to follow ns. See how eautiously she moves through tl1e grass, for fear of frightening us away. I wonder if she thinks her gaze ean hypnotize us. She is getting elose to the strealn, but does not notiee it, and does not see the little foot- bridge. Her eye is still fixed upon us, and- Oh!- There, she has fallen into the water! Hal ha! ha! The stupid Freshman !" ODE TO THE SYRUP JUG. ALONE by the tire, on a cold winter WI: evening, I turn the worn leaves of the dear E A' "Junior Bug," X ,Q I What a flood of fond memories comes surging upon nie As I come to one picture: the old syrup jug. It stands just as it stood on the dining room table, The friend that stuck to us from first unto last. Its top on askew, its sides streaked and adhesive. And the flies clinging round it so fondly and fast. What a source of true comfort! XVhen all things else failed us NVe welcomed that nectar of bright amber hue, As it spread o'er the plate in a wave of rich sweetness, And sometimes o'er napkin and table cloth, too. When the beefsteak was 'tougher than pieces of leather, Xvlllfll the hash was a mystery no one dared try. And the butter's own strength proved its self-preserva- tion, Un the syrup jug's solace we still could rely. Yes, a true friend in 11eed was that classic old treasure, And when out in the world, with college days past, Remember the creed which the syrup jug practiced: Be faithful in friendship and stick to the last. 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. She might well serve as a contrast to her more vivacious sister. "I don't see how that button cfm come off," she re- marked, as she cut the thread from the little garment. "This is the first time that you have sewed them on to-day, is it not?" Miriam looked up from her book with a mischievous slnile. "YVhy don't you try wire?" "I am not sure but I shall be obliged to. This is the third set I have sewed on this week, but as to-day is Saturday it will be the last. I suppose I should give up 1 i I., ,-Q.- 4 R 1. or 3: , ti 3, MX ml K? having these buttons on Richard's clothes, but I have al- ways preferred blue suits, with gilt buttons, for little boys." "Uan't a ministcr's wife have a single foolish luxury ? One of my friends was a dandy girl until she married a minister. Now she can't spend five cents for candy with- out carefully testing the pros and cons by the Thirty- ni11e Articles and the NVestminister Confession of Faith. But I have always thought your husband was an excep- tion to the rule. I avoid theologs.', Miriam pensively cut the leaves of her hook with a hair pin. "They are nearly all engaged, and those who are not want to be. If it is possible, without direct falsehoods, I lead them to be- lieve that 1 am engaged. If that does not work I tell them that I have given dancing lessons and am going on the stage. After that they-talk to the other girlsf' Miriam gave further vent to her feelings in quick cuts. She frowned in answer to her sisteris tolerant smile and resumed her reading. The silence which fol- lowed was of the kind which makes superstitious people feel things in their bones. and the more conservative long for any kind of a disturbance. The whole room seemed to brighten as a small boy ran up to the front door. The calm expression of Mrs. Vernor's face was slight- ly ruffled when she returned from the door, and there THE TENTH CHANCE-Continued. was a note of despair in her voice as she turned to her sister. 'fMy ever considerate spouse has bethought himself to send word that 11e is going to bring two ministers home with him to lunch. I-le writes that they are promi- nent men, so, of course, he will expect everything to be in accordance with his position as a city ministerf' "And that you will be a model city rninistcr's wife. Thank heaven, I-" "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 to the mirror, where she connneneed to practice humble facial expressions. "Don't talk nonsense, Miriam. Do you for a minute 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? U Mrs. V ernor's face did not retlect the laughter from her sister's eyes. "Are you sure, Miriam 'P D Q "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- tatoes. 73 i I G I- I' I' Preparations for luncheon progressed rapidly. The magic of the gas range and the bakery worked together in a truly charmed manner. The charm seemed to have THE TENTH CHANCE-Conoluded. 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 solved. i'RiCi1?tl'di', 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.,' 'I' I Q I H I 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."

The large arc light at I jx 55 'til .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.
