JfMS k - i®{ ES MCMX1 CIAPiLA SHED JUNIOR CLASS. jfafei i ' u , u u r JMUHLEMBEH G COLLEGE. To keep alive the pleasant memories of our college days, to revive old friendships, to bind closer the ties of fellowship in 19 I I , to present the history of a busy year in an interesting and amusing manner, and to further the interests of our Alma Mater has been our constant aim. We present this book to our alumni, fellow-students, and friends in the hope that we have pleased many and offended few. Our work will not seem in vain if, per- chance, we have succeeded in maintaining and promoting the spirit of old Muhlenberg. TO THE REVEREND CHARLES MICHAEL JACOBS, A. M. Instructor of History, 1 905 " 0 7 ; Professor of History, I907 " 09, THE CLASS OF 1911 respectfully dedicate this Ciarla, as a token of their eSteem and appreciation of his broad work and loyalty to Muhlenberg. 5 6 Rev. Charles Michael Jacobs, A. M. HARLES MICHAEE JACOBS was born in Gettysburg, Pa., December 5, 1875. He is the son of Henry Eyster Jacobs, D. D. who at that time was Professor of Latin in Pennsylvania College. His grandfather, Michael Jacobs, D. D. had been Professor of Mathematics in the same institution from its foundation to the time of his death. In 1883, the family moved to Philadelphia, where Mr. Jacobs received his college preparation at the Rittenhouse Academy conducted for many years at Eighteenth and Chestnut Streets, but now gone out of existence. He was graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with the degree of A. B. in 1895, and during the year 1895-96 was Master of Mathema- tics at the Chestnut Hill Academy. Entering the Lutheran Seminary at Mount Airy in 1896, he was graduated from that institution and ordained to the ministry of the Lutheran Church by the Miuisterium of Pennsylvania in 1899. From 1899 to 1902, Rev. Jacobs was pastor of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, North Wales, Pa. In 1895-96, 1896-97, and 1901-1902, he was a post-graduate student in History and Philosophy at the University of Pennsyl- vania, from which institution he received the degree of A. M. Resigning his charge at North Wales, Pa. in 1902, he spent the two semesters of 1902-03’ at the University of Leipzig as a student in History and Philosophy, with Church History as his major subject. In 1904 he was elected the first pastor of Christ Lutheran Church, Allentown, Pa. and has served that con- gregation as its pastor ever since. Elected Instructor of History at Muhlenberg College in 1905, he became Pro- fessor of History in 1907, filling that chair until 1909, when he resigned from the faculty to devote all his time to work of his congregation. He was married in 1905 to Abigal Shearer of North Wales, Pa. and has one child, a daughter, born in 1906. Under his devoted pastorate at the Christ Lutheran Church, the present beautiful structure was reared, and the congregation has been assuming ever greater proportions. As students, we are best acquainted with Mr. Jacobs in the capacity of Professor of History at our institution. . He was always a close student, ever seeking to give his classes the latest and best interpretations that historical research afforded. It was our privilege when conversing with him to feel that we were being met on our own ground. He was a student among the students. His energies, while at Muhlenberg were not confined exclusively to the lecture room. As co-worker with Professor William Reese, he devoted no little time to fostering and de- veloping athletics, perceiving th erein not only the best physical training for the student, but a necessary step toward the realization of Greater Muhlenberg. We shall always remember him as a warm friend of our Alma Mater. 7 ROMIG BRANDT RENTSCHLER KLINE HAMM 3HAS.L.

ITH the ceremony of matriculation were unbolted for us portals through which we entered upon a new and a wonderful life. As the Freshmen ordinarily manifest their verdancy by vastly over-estimating their importance as college students, or by very superficially comprehending their actual significance in the college world, so, probably, our debut in this new life was also characterized. Perhaps we did blow pretty bubbles, those beautiful magic balls which, tinted with all the colors of the spectrum, float away from and about us. But if we did possess such vain feelings at the time they presently under- went a complete metamorphosis, developing into those of trepidation; and if we did blow such bubbles they were suddenly burst and dispelled by whiffs of Sophomore realism. And then problems presented themselves for our solution and the life became very real. The Freshman and Sophomore years were Scylla and Charybdis to us; but by application we secured for our- selves what the Argonauts of old found in Thetis, so that now we turn our eyes back toward Scylla and recognize in it a strong rock which like a sentinel protects us; toward Charybdis we look and behold it as a beautiful lake of clear and sparkling water, in which are reflected the sky like a source of tranquil light and surrounding nature like a wonderful book opened. In this final year we have met the Seniors’ foes. Vital problems baffled us; we were given only momentary glances into the unknown; we trod in the mazes of wisdom; we were lost in wonder; and then — graduation. The retrospection is delightful indeed. We now appreciate the minor difficulties, the various problems, and the adverse circumstances, which we had to encounter. They were simply the miniature representations of the diffi- culties with which our future life will be perplexed. We were given a preparation so harmonious and delightful in its entirety, so full and rich in its scope, so advantageous and beneficial in its effects that we feel nothing but gain — gain from which we shall certainly derive an eternal income. Closed books have been opened to us; mysteries have been unravelled for us; and new vistas have been viewed by us. And with our intellectual progression the authorities have endeavored to maintain a corresponding improvement in our morals and religion, and herein lies the crowning strength. Therefore, as graduation launches us upon the deep of the uncertain and mysterious future, and as we have had all the privileges and opportunities of acquiring the necessary strength and knowledge for such a voyage, we can confidently hope always to press onward and move forward, firmly saying “Jamais en Arriere.’’ FtlSTORIAF, 31 Senior Statistics JOHN MILTON ABERLY, NEW BERN, N.

N the Autumn of 1907 there came to Muhlenberg a motley band of Freshmen, thirty-one in number, that were to make up the class of 1911. I say a motley band because it was indeed such; for we con- stituted a class with ideas of college and college-life as variegated as the individual persons who made up the class. Recognizing the fact that in order to successfully resist the injunctions and demands the Sophs, our so-called superiors, had laid down for us, we decided that organization was necessary. The only part of this proceeding deserving of mention is the fact that after considerable debate it was decided to follow the advice of one of our number who advocated electing “the best built fellow’’ as our president. I distinctly remem- ber that we had the annual “Bowl-Fight” in view when this was done, and indeed this expected conflict formed the chief subject for discussion, but, for reasons that the Sophs have not to the present day explained in a satis- factory manner, this never occured. In our gridiron contest with the Sophs we were defeated by a very small margin, only after a most stubborn- ly contested battle. It is on the basketball floor that our class has always shown brightest in athletics, and in this our first year at college, three of the seven who made up the varsity, were members of 1911. Our class play at the end of the year more than made up for whatever may have been our deficiencies along other lines, and stood out as the particularly bright spot in our career as Freshmen. AS SOPHOMORES. When we returned to college a year later to take up our duties as Sophs, we were in many respects a different class. We had been “weeded out ’ as it were, and, by the addition of a number of men, new blood had been in- fused into our veins. Our experiences with Freshmen in our capacity of guide and instructor did not vary from the ordinary save as separately recounted in this volume. Who of us will ever forget the memorable night in which we literally besmeared this town with bright green paint and covered it with posters? But more memorable even than that is the occasion on which we visited the “City of Brotherly Rove” and at a most elaborate and enjoyable banquet partook of the best that the Windsor Hotel could afford. Suffice it to say that our entire Sophomore year was gone through and its duties performed in a way that is a standing credit to our class. 37 191 1 VS. 1912 AS JUNIORS. ith justifiable pride we stand at the close of our Junior year and review our record as a class at Muhlen- berg ' . But a small part of our college course remains to be completed and it is not without regret that we will enter, so to speak, upon the last lap of our course as a class in the halls that have become so dear to us. We have been unfortunate in that a number of our former members, for diverse reasons, saw fit to desert us at the end of our Sophomore year; but on the other hand we were glad to welcome into our midst Brandt and Kline, who have proven themselves in all respects worthy members of our class. We have taken upon ourselves the responsibility of upper class-men and have thus far upheld the reputation of 1911 in a manner that has gained for us the just respect of our fellow students. In all college activities we are taking a prominent part. We have the enviable reputation of standing first of the four classes in scholarship. It was a member of 1911 who represented the college in the last Intercollegiate Oratorical contest, and on the Glee Club of this year — which was the most successful in the history of the college, were nine men from our class. 38 In Athletics too, we have taken a leading part. We were well represented on the varsity eleven of the past season, and in the interclass basketball series the 1911 team began the season with a victory, and maintaining a comfortable lead throughout the series, won the championship of the college and was awarded a beautiful silver cup. During the year that is still before us we feel sure that our class will live up to the high standards it has estab- lished. It is true that our number is not large but what we have accomplished along all lines causes us to realize that numbers alone do not bring success. Our crowning achievement is the compilation of this volume and we are convinced, without wishing to ap- pear egotistic, that it denotes the high-water mark in the history of the Ciarla. 39 CLASS OF 1911 AS FRESHMEN The biographer is pleased to introduce this brilliant array of diversified genius with Ammarell, the politician. From the morn Ray first opened his eyes on this wonderful world, in that mighty metropolis, Leinbach (tucked away in the remote recesses of Berks County), the powers of the political stump speaker have been his. His ancestry for several generations has been active in politics, so Raymond natur- ally fell heir to the propensities of “auld lang syne.” When his wisdom excelled that of his country pedadogue, he betook his slender form to the Keystone State Normal School, where another layer of erudition was superinposed. Some years later, teaching in the grade schools of Catasauqua claimed his attention. But his political powers at that time were not dormant ; for a neigh- boring town, which for years had been of Republican persuasion, suddenly relinquished its political views and went solid for Mr. Bryan. Had William J. engaged the ser- vices of our classmate during the past campaign, his election would have been as- sured. The biographer lacks space to record the machinations of Cupid upon his roomy heart while at Catasauqua. He makes frequent trips to the Reading Hos- pital where, he informs us, he is perfecting himself in a special course in nursing. It is difficult to ascertain the connection of nursing with pedagogy; but Raymond says there is a vital one, so we accept it as true. Since his arrival at Muhlenberg, Raymond has brought influence to bear upon many phases of college life. As a librarian, he has no equal for miles around. In his Sophomore year he was sub-center on the foot-ball squad, and is proud to wear his scrub M. He is coach, captain-manager, and star player of the 1911 tennis team. The pedagogical world will be greatly honored not many days hence. “Tariff for revenue only.” “I can’t see that.” “I’ll be gor dash it,” “The Muhlenberg” Staff; Press Club, ' Euterpea; Scrub Football (2); Class Football (1, 2); Frankean Society; Classical Club; Keystone Club, President (3); Class Treasurer (3); Prepared at Keystone State Normal School; Classical Course.

You will best understand Philip by knowing that he is a man of muscle, brain, and power, and the oldest member of 1911. " Phil’ ' hails from Philadelphia, where he lias had much experience in business. His college preparation was received at Phila delphia, and at Perkiomen Seminary, where he also taught stenography and typewrit ing- Our heavy classmate is renowned for many faculties, but chiefest for his exact data on women, which, he tells us, he collected out of no mean personal experience. His private office, No. 202 Berks Hall, is open daily to love-crossed souls seeking helpful advice. When Baringer is not " in”, he is generally to be found engaged in one of his all-night, heart-to-heart talks with Hassler. During the foot-ball season, it was thought that “Phil” had stock in the Fairground property, but this opinion no longer prevails. As an orator and critic on oratory, our classmate stands all alone. When he rises to pour forth in thundering tones his eloquence, n o dog would dare to bark. Moreover, he guards his voice with zealous care ; and, for fear of straining a vocal cord, never joins in the class or college yells. His opinion on any question is final; he expects no contradiction from any quarter. “Phil” is in his best mood (for he is a man of many moods) when seated in his pivot chair, feet resting on the ceiling, exhalling the savory fumes of his old (very old) corncob pipe. d » A Baringer takes an active interest in the religious organizations and conferences at school, and does considerable outside reading in church history and theology. This preparation, together with his many gifts, will make him a minister of power. U ” — that is, — that is — ” “I’m glad you see it that way.” |[ “Phil” PHILADELPHIA.

" — Pope. John Edmiston Bauman is not afraid of anything on earth that does not wear skirts. From this it may be inferred that one could hardly call John “a ladies man.” In fact he says he has never in his life called on a young lady, and no one at col lege has even so much as seen him speak to one. In this respect John holds the college record and even Geary Everett, his nearest competitor, admits defeat. But if John doesn ' t like girls there are other things he does like, for he is passionately fond of all forms of athletics, but especially of basket-ball and boxing, and say — John can box. If you doubt it come over to the gym some afternoon and gut on the gloves with him. John is a great walker and often goes on “little pleasure jaunts” of from ten to fifteen miles into the country, and the rate at which he walks would do credit to the ancient tricycle which he will no doubt some day inherit. John’s chiefest delight however is in playing practical jokes and he will go to any amount of trouble in order to enjoy some other person’s discomforture. His many laughable experiences at college would of themselves fill a book, and many of them are still standing jokes, — how he went up into the tower of the Admin- istration building, on a morinng when it was so foggy that one couldn’t see twenty rods, “to look at the scenery,” and was besieged by Kuder, who kept John up there for over an hour, using the cleaning committee’s pile of “Bee” soap as ammunition; and how in our Sophomore year he investigated the ventilating system of the Main building, and by going down one of the pipes learned all the secrets of the Fresh- men regarding their play. Though John may be somewhat eccentric, he is one of the most loyal students at college, and his strength of character is going to make him successful in his chosen vocation. He says he is going to be a civil engineer. “I can’t explain it all in one sentence.” JOHN HENRY BIEBER, KUTZTOWN. “Electrician” “Johnnie” Ciarla Staff, Artist and Photographer; Euterpea; Class Football (2); Class Track (2, 3); Scientific Club; Frankean Society; Keystone Club; Pre- pared at the Keystone State Normal School; Scientific Course. “And when a lady’s in the case You know all other things give place.” — Gay. “A lion among the ladies is a most fearful thing.” — Shakspere. John is a beau brummel, a heart breaker, a fusser of ability, and especially in the swim in the vicinity of Virginville. Variegated socks, green oxfords, light trousers, and a lightning hat-band, — all bear witness to the fact that “Johnnie” is a typical college sport. In the art of flirting he stands second only to Grant. It is not unusual to see him take a trip through the realms of dreamland in Analytics as a result of keeping late hours the night before. Our photographer has more slang expressions than any one else at school. They vary with the occasion all the way from " That ' s going some” to “You’re a liar.” His favorite lunch is oyster soup and Swiss-cheese sandwiches. Whenever he partakes of these prior to retiring for the night, he is apt to become a somnam- bulist, in which case his college spirit breaks forth in songs and yells so vocifer- ous that he arouses all the sleepers in Berks Hall. Rentschler, Bauman, and John are the only mathematically inclined members of our class. Bieber has his own theories in Physics and often begs to disagree with . . " Pop” Reese. Before each quiz in Physics his room is filled with classmates who lay their difficulties before him ; John clears up the problems and sends each on his way rejoicing. Scientifically speaking, “Johnnie " is a great man, — doing in one- day what it takes others weeks to do. We, as classmates, prophesy a brilliant career in electrical engineering, provided his love affair does not reach a climax too soon. To sum up, John is partly an electrician, chemist, draftsman, motorist and photographer. He is successful in all these spheres of life; for he believes in being proficient in everything every day.” He has at various times contemplated taking a correspondent course in cartooning. We think he’d “make good” in this; for he has much of that stick-to-a-tive spirit which characterizes the present day successful man.

" Laughed at all his jokes, for many a joke had he.” — Goldsmith . “There ' s nothing half so sweet as love’s young dream.” — Moore. “Bill” Brandt is the latest acquisition to the class of igii. He entered our class last September brim full of high aspirations, chief of which was his desire to own a “Teddy Bear” (hair-cut) and his eagerness to be popular with the ladies. He acquired the former, as you can see by his photograph, after having been in our midst but a few weeks. As to his success with the fair sex — we do not wish to have our opinion quoted. “Bill” very creditably represented our class on the varsity eleven during the season just passed, and had the honor of making the first touch-down of the season. His good judgement both on the gridiron and off, gained the confidence of the student-body and resulted in his election as manager of the team for the season of 1910. Our classmate has entered with vigor into nearly all the phases of college activity. You might not guess, judging from this photograph alone, that the subject of this sketch has some real elements of wit, but this is a fact nevertheless. The only fault to be found with his witticisms was very aptly expressed by “Bob” Kline when he said, “Bill’s jokes are alright but they’re all Ladies’ Home Journal jokes,” and indeed many of them do indicate that Bill does not always respect old age. But in punning Bill is original and really gets off some good ones. Although Wilhelm’s voice is of a questionable quality he was fortunate enough to be selected a member of the Glee Club, as was also his room-mate, he of the feline name. As this is their first year on the club they seem to think that constant practice is necessary to hold down their jobs, and as a result Rhoads’ Hall very frequently emits improvised harmony that is almost heart-rending. Bill is a good student and a conscientious worker. We feel perfectly safe in predicting a rosy future for him no matter what vocation he follows. “Well, yes, of course!” 45 r WILLIAM E.

Arthur is a living witness of the truth of the saying that fat people are good-natured. No one in col- lege lias ever seen him without that genial smile that has many times caused Dr. Wackernagel to relent when he was on the point of dismissing Arthur from the class. This photograph does not flatter him in the least, for he really is quite a hand- some chap ; and though he is very modest, and prone to embarrassment, and loses some of his natural wit in the presence of ladies, yet from a little confidential information we are led to believe that he finds time now and then to do a little “fussing” on the side. Arthur enjoys nothing so much as a good joke, even if it is at his own ex- pense; and what is more, he remembers a joke. One need only talk to him about basket-ball and he will be sure to tell you how, in his Freshman year, when our basketball team played Stroudsburg Normal, the co-eds at that place mistook him for the physical director, who had accompanied our team. When Johnnie Bauman (Jr. ) is at loss to find someone to appreciate his num- erous practical jokes, he invariably hunts up Arthur; for John knows he will then have an appreciative audience. It is necessary to know Arthur well to appreciate his good qualities, which are not a few. He is very generous, clean, conscientious, at rue friend, and always ready to lend material aid in our translations. And here we must take leave of our good-natured friend. May he always re- tain that comfortable smile and be successful in his intended profession, the ministry. " Be Gee.” “Yes, sir!” WARREN L.

" A sunny temper gilds the edge of life’s blacked cloud.” — Guthrie. Not so many years ago there was born in the wilderness of Bucks County, Pa., a little child who was christened Warren L. Eberts by Dr. Wackernagel. Early in life this boy manifested traits which showed him to be endowed with rare gifts. Biographers claim that there was an excjuisitely beautiful ring in his voice when he shouted to the cows as he drove them home from pasture. And yet the inhabitants of Bingen little thought that this erstwhile rustic yodler would be a famous tenor singer of to-day. But Warren is more than a singer. He is manager of the Glee Club. His wonderful success in that capacity is attributed to the fact that as a youth he knew the exact number of cobs of corn in the bin at home. Warren’s strongest point is athletics. Pie is a veritable Hercules in athletic prowess and the team statistics given in this book will give a better idea of his achievements in basketball, baseball and football than this biography could give. Nor is he lacking in social accomplishments. Who knows but by this time he may be a benedict. He doesn’t go to Reading twice a week for the car rides alone. Warren eschews all over-exertion in studying. His attitude in this matter is probably due to the fact that he was himself once a pedagogue. He believes in " living to bluff’’ and " bluffing to live.” Warren is the modern Guy de Maupassant of short story telling. We do not know what his plans are for the future. But it is safe to predict a successful life for one as vesatile as he, — no matter whether he becomes a street car conductor, a pedagogue, a minister, an auctioneer, or a singer of grand opera. “It’s just this way, fellows.” " We just got to beat them.” 47 REAMSTOWN. you is CHARLES L.

If women are the enemies of man, surely this classy Junior before measuring up to the scriptural command to love one’s enemies. While Charlie is particular about quality, he is not so in the matter of quantity. There is a pecu- liar fascination in the peroxide hair, blue eyes, and clever manner of “Cholly” which renders it unnecessary to state that the girls readily reciprocate his unpremeditated advances. As a student of great concentration, he frequently burns the midnight oil. Since it is desirable that mortal man should sleep sometime, this blue-eyed lad snatches his rest in the class room, where we often hear said, “Drat that boy; lie’s asleep again.” By “generalizing to beat the band” he generally succeeds in making a fairly decent recitation. “Cholly " is college agent for Lancaster weeds. Cigars, dear reader, are of two kinds, — good and good-for-nothing. Grant sells only one kind. Beware. A large portion of the business end of college organizations is borne by Char- lie, whose Jewish sagacity closes bargains favorably. While our classmate was still in his thriving native burg, Reamstown, he was a staunch supporter of the G. O. P. ; but since he has ocme in contact with his chum, he is favorably inclined toward Socialism. He says that if he cannot convince a man, by solid fact and argument, that Socialism is the thing, he will make use of his hypnotic powers. But he has sadly realized, like his fellow classmates, that no power whatever can move Am- marell to change an opinion. I hough the sky be overclouded, the sun ever glows from the generous, con- siderable heart of this man of action and information. Would you learn more about Greek verbs, dancing, the Orpheum, the psychology of flirtology, “near jokes”, or other current topics, see “Chollie.” Grant has us guessing as to his future, but be assured that his college experiences are varied enough to make him service able anywhere.

Old inhabitants of the Tenth Ward, Allentown, tell us that the advent of George Hamm upon this mundane sphere was accompanied by many and strange supernatural forebodings. That they were indicative of the extraordinary genius of the child is self-evident to us who know George. It is said that the first toy George ever possessed was a hammer. This ham- mer he has wielded vigorously ever since. And yet he is far from being a common- place knocker. Born with a controversal turn of mind he has ever been ready to espouse the cause of right. He has manifested this fact by his undying support of Bryanism, bis faith in Christian Science, and his gallant defense of the Woman’s Suffrage cause. George has his heroes and lie imbibes their traits. He loves Nature like Thoreau; he sticks to his convictions like Robert Ingersoll ; and he tries to bluff the Profs like Elbert Hubbard does the world. George has the distinction of being the only student Dr. Haas ever " flunked” in religion. Our classmate is an omnivorous reader; and, by no means infrequently, becomes so absorbed in his books that he forgets all about the lesson unprepared or the class unattended. Although George is thoroughly conversant with all the requirements of society, he prefers seclusion with his books or Nature to the companionship of man i we forbear to say woman because it is rumored that Cupid’s dart has wounded him.) George does not take part in athletics. While he advocates games, he believes that one should keep all his surplus energies for his orations, — hence his oratorical abilities. He has the convincing power of William Pitt and is a close second to La Follette in the length of his speeches. When George is on the programme for an essay, debate, or oration, we always look for something interesting. He has never failed us in our expectations ; for he possesses an abundance of original ideas and theories. He has a method of reasoning all his own, and many an oppon- ent has experienced to his discomfort that this method is all too logical. “By Jiminy.” 49 GEORGE B. HAMM, ALLENTOWN.

" In Study took he most care and heede.” — Chaucer. “With grave aspect he rose, and in his rising seemed a pillar of State. " — Milton. John Edgar Hartzell, the sweet dignity of whose countenance now greets you, is not always as serious as his likeness would indicate. On the contrary our classmate is of merry heart and at times bubbles over with good, honest laughter. John is one of the few consistently industrious boys at college. While other boys are at their games or the theatre or calling, “Shortie” is home culling the re- freshing fruits of knowledge from dusty old grammars and lexicons. But John maintains that assenting to everything the teacher says is as conducive to good no- tations as thorough preparation. Hartzell, however, does not ignore the various college activities. As one of the business managers of this Ciarla, he has proven that he possesses rare business traits. In the histrionic art he has manifested his ability by masterly handling a ten- line part in " Sweet Lavender” and by suping in “Ingomar.” Rut John takes things philosophically and contents himself by saying “Genius will out.” John has an athletic build but is satisfied to view athletics from the side-lines. Tn the social world he is consistent and conservative, looking at the girl question from a very serious point of view. Hartzell’s master trait is his oratory. Even as a child when king of the kids the boy manifested rare oratorical abilities. The stirring addresses of little “Tonny” delivered to his comrades preparatory to storming the enemy’s snow fort still ring in the minds of the “gang”. This erstwhile child orator is now “the orator” of Muhlenberg as he demonstrated on March 10th by winning the inter-society con- test. John intends to be a lawyer, and has already committed the Pennsylvania Law Digest to memory. His future bears the stamp of success. “Don’t you believe it.” “By jabers.” ROBERT FETTEROLF KLINE, ALLENTOWN “Bob” Liarla Staff ( 09, ’ll); Glee Club ( 07, 08, 10); Dramatic Association; Sopbronia; Scrub Football (’06, ’07, ’09); 1909 Class Football (’05, ’06); 1909 Class Basketball (’06, ’07); 1911 Class Basket- ball (’10); 1909 Class Track ( 06); Manager 1909 Class Play; A T !i Fraternity; Prepared at the Allentown High School; Philosophical Course. “Give me ease and I am happy. " - — Pope. “I care not for the 3tars that shine. " — Selected Several years ago there ambled slowly into Muhlenberg’s honored halls an Adonis-like lad known as " Bob” Kline. " Bob " would have been graduated with the Class of 1909 had not sickness visited him. No, this sickness was not due to overwork; for " Bob” wastes no energy and believes in living and letting live. “Boh” considers himself punctual if he manages to stroll into recitations ten minutes before the class is excused. But he always has a legitimate excuse ready- one time “there was a fire nearby” (in a flue three blocks away ) and " he thought it might spread” to his home; another time " there was no eight o’clock car” (the one that took us to school ) ; another time he " slipped and fell into a puddle of mud” (on the asphalt street) " and had to go home and change his clothes.” Kline ' s weak point is women. He is quite clever in selecting lady friends — and they are many — whose papas own autos. And moreover, “Bob” thinks the world of each one. As a member of the college quartet, his fame is jumping all bounds; it takes " Bob” to put the final touches to the mimicry in the " Father’s Lullaby” and the " Piper’s Song.” Our classmate has taken solo parts in many cantatas in Allen- town. Kline is also an artist of no mean ability. He draws his sketches everywhere, — on the blackboards, in his text-books, and on the back of your collar when you’re not looking. Samples of his work may he seen in this book and in the 1909 Ciarla. " Bob” enters heartily into all phases of college athletics; he is an adept in the histrionic art, and a master of Shaksperean technique.

Things are not what they seem. ' This lad, dear ladies, though stern and power- ful in aspect, of dark complexion and deep set features, need not be feared even by the gentlest. His might finds its most dangerous expression in the words, “If I weren’t afraid of hurting you, I’d — I’d — well, you’re a pretty good fellow anyway.” His cheerful, pliable nature is wreathed in broad, free-to-all smiles. Edgar is na- turally a man of few words; but sometimes to our great surprise he joins in our “jol lying” during lunch hour, and a few times has actually becoem aggressive. " Labbie” has a perfect athletic build ; but for reasons which assume no more definite expression than assorted smiles, he is not particularly attracted to college sports. At times, however, he plays basketball, and was elected captain-manager and spiritual adviser of the 1911 scrub basketball team. Edgar was born and raised in the picturesque anti romantic hamlet of Catasau- qua. We may picture to ourselves young Lawall, as yet untarnished by the world, with no thought of his future grandeur, playing marbles in front of t he Catasau- qua City Hall, or reclining in the grace of youth on the verdant grass which flour ishes on the main street of his native village. Hut this pastoral life was not to endure. By a fortuitous combination of circumstances, he was matriculated into the renowned Class of 1911 at Muhlenberg College. He still gives vent to the in- stincts of youth through his membership in the " Childish Glee Quartet”, the other members of which are “Kid” Miller, “Scientist” Stuart, and “Young Johnnie” Bau- man. The Quartet rehearses daily in the locker room. “Labbie” is one of the more influential members of the Scientific Club. His most marked characteristic is that of a close student. We have undisputed evi- dence showing that midnight oil is burned at Catasauqua. We know further that it is burned to advantage. Medical missionary work in the far East will perhaps enlist his life interest. “Now listen.” " Professor, may I ask you a question?” Glee Club (3) ; Dramatic Association ; Sophronia ; The John Lear Biologi- cal Society ; Prepared at the Allentown Preparatory School ; Scientific Course. “O, you Kid.” ‘‘Harvey, Harvey, (old your little hands.” During the first two years of his college career, young Miller enjoyed the un- disputed reputation of being the “wee-wee-est” student to inhale the exhilarating ozone of College Heights. Hence, the name “Kid” was not incompatible with his stature. Of late, however, this youngster has risen so rapidly in the world that he compares favorably in height with any of his classmates. Completing his preparatory education at the Allentown High School in 1906, and at the Allentown Preparatory School in 1907, he “reckoned” it would prove a pleasant pastime to be registered as a college student. We might mention, incident- ally, that since “Kid " entered Muhlenberg, he has considered it more or less of a jolly sport. His frequent absences from college halls bring to his classmates no little anxiety as to the whereabouts of their darling little boy. His chief occu- pation is handing various brands of the obnoxious weed over an Allentown counter. “Kid” is a cheerful prevaricator and story teller. It gives him keen, childish glee to amaze the fellows with reports concerning his latest playthings. His most pleasing story is “How I became a waiter at Atlantic City.” He bristles with useful data regarding the securing of profitable employment in the Atlantic and Pacific Coast Hotels. Miller has many playmates, chief among them being “Young Johnnie” Bauman, Catasauqua " Labbie”, and “Scientist” Stuart. Most of their amusing antics occur in the celebrated “tear-up” convocation parlor, alias the locker room. Harvey’s reputation as an interpreter of feminine character preceded his en- trance to college, and he was given the title role in our Freshman play, Sweet Lavender. His great success in this difficult role assured him leading parts in the college plays. “Kid” is naturally a bright lad. A trifle more of practical application to that phase of college life which is often misnomered “grinding " will result in the at- tainment of his mama’s fondest hopes, and our rosiest expectations. “Oh Hell.” HARVEY RAY MILLER. “Kid’ ALLENTOWN. fa r la 1 BERNE. ROGER M. RENTSCHLER, Distant, secluded, still, (except for the monotonous cackling of barnyard fowl and the grunt of sleepy hogs) the little hamlet of Upper Berne, Berks County, was highly favored in the Spring of 1886 with the arrival of Roger, the pedagogue. A report still lingers in the gossip of that region that Roger’s ability as a mathemat- ician was conspicious very early in childhood. The report runs that he could count his catch on the toes of one foot, when, as a bare-foot country fisher-boy, he would while away his time beside the neighboring mill stream. He labored on the paternal farm for several years, then he wandered from the little valley to Hamburg, where he received his high school education. During the following three years he wield- ed the birch rod in the country school, in which capacity he inspired many a rustic lad with the ambition of becoming president some day. A short time spent at Perkiomen Seminary completed his college preparation. At Muhlenberg his ability as a mathematician did not long remain screened. As sub-instructor in that branch he has ever been in demand by those less for- tunately endowed. He is a worthy member of the Perkiomen Club. Roger is no brawny athlete, but by no means a molly-coddle. His ardent advocacy of the Bryan politics is equalled by few and excelled only by Ammarell, the librarian and hospi- tal patient. When these two antiprotectionists join forces in political discussion, they not only surpass the suffragettes in zeal, but drive even the staunchest Repub- licans from the platform. Awful to relate, the modest breast of Roger has become affected by the pranks of the fair sex. He would have us believe that Catasauqua and love are synonymous. But there need be no fear as to the ultimate outcome; for Roger is an advocate of love-with-reason. We should disparage present manifestations of genius were we to question Roger’s pedagogical future. “Oi, oi, oi, oi.” “Rog” Ciarla Staff; Muhlenberg Staff ; Dramatic Association ; Euterpea; Frankean Society; Classical Club ; Per kiomen Club ; Class Treasurer (3); Pre- pared at the Perkiomen Seminary ; Classical Course. “A voice from the farm.’’ “You are a good man and true.’’ 54 “But thou bring’it valour too and wit, Two things that seldom (ail to hit. " — Butler , This slight but fair-countenanced Junior, dear reader, has caused more sighs and heart-aches among the fair of Allentown than perhaps any other fellow at Muhlenberg. It is not without some compunction that we make this statement ; for but a short time ago Edgar told us quite confidentially that he hoped his biographer would not mention him in connection with the fair sex ; but “what is writ is writ.” Edgar has a certain unique drollery about him which, together with his mo- desty and originality, makes his sayings exceedingly humorous. It was a rare treat to hear “Eddie” and Morning ’io in repartee. But Romig is also a member of the Dry Joke Association, the other members of which are “Ausser” Butz, “Bob” Kline, " Warrie” Eberts and “Johnnie” Bauman. Regular gatherings are held at lunch hour in the basement of the main building. Although Edgar is not an athlete, he has always taken a prominent part in other college and class activities. He has been a member of the Glee Club since he en- tered college and has won laurels in the histrionic art. His scholarship is above reproach, and in recitations his ever-ready wit enables him to pass over many gaps in knowledge that would mean flunks for many of his classmates. His favorite (?) study during the past two years has been German and often his discussions with our German Instructor have been very interesting indeed. Eddie’s pet hobby, however, is English in all its phases. It is really a pleasure to him to write essays ; Shaksperean criticism is second nature to him. Edgar expects to take up the ministry as his profession and there is no doubt that he will be successful; but in order to avoid all confusion and intrigue among the young ladies of his congregation, we would advise him to marry before he accepts a charge. “Yes, that’s right.” “Eddie’ 1911 Ciada Staff; Dramatic Association ; Glee Club (1,2, 3); Sophronia; AT Classical Club, Vice-President (3) ; Prepared at the Allentown High School; Classical Course.

" — D ' Israeli. Harry Gould Stuart came into existence, through the working out of the atomic theory of life, just twenty years ago in the Indian settlement known as Catasauqua. He is a lineal descendent of the famous Stuarts of English history. Harry, however, does not inherit their evil traits; but is, in fact, inclined to be rather Puritanical. Science is Harry’s pet hobby. Evolving a cosmic philosophy is as easy for him as falling off a log. He is known throughout the Seventh Ward as the great cham- pion of Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. Psychology is another of his favorite stu- dies. In this branch he has done much to elevate the science by bis treatises, " Amativeness of Fleas” and “Natural Selection vs. Memory in Cochroaches.” Stuart manifests his scientific bent in all phases of his every day life. He puts it into play, into baseball, into basketball, and into tennis. In fact, be becomes so thoroughly engrossed in the theory of the game that his opponents find him an easy victim. “Stench” has an especially marked instinct for play. His favorite playmate is " Kid” Miller; and these two children spend many pleasant hours in romping on the college green. One of the best of Harry’s gifts is his drawing ability. Even as an infant he used to draw pictures of bacteria in the sand. He is one step in advance of the old time artist inasmuch as he never uses a model. When Stuart was a child, he saw a cat suffering from sick headache. Ever ready to relieve the suffering about him, the sympathetic boy bought a headache powder and gave it to the poor creature. That cat never had a headache afterwards. Thought- ful neighbors urged the boy to take up medicine. This he set about to do and present indications point out success for him. “That’s easy.” “Get out of here.” “Cinch Course.” PAUL CHARLES WEBER, “Rosy Cheeks’ ’ Editor-in-chief Ciarla; Muhlenberg Staff; Glee Club (1,2,3); Dramatic Association; Secretary Students Organization; Class Football (1,2); Scrub Football (I); Euterpea; Class Secretary (I, 2); Prepared at Latrobe High School; Classical Course. “A little round, fat, oily man of God.” — Selected. “Let not the man be trusted that hath no music in his soul.” — Shakspere . LATROBE. Behold him girls, for he is a comely lad. Paul, the editor, — or as more fam- iliarly known, " Rosy Cheeks” — is no six footer, but possesses those qualities which are particularly fascinating to the feminine taste. In far off Latrobe, skirting yon western horizon, Paul whiled away his boyhood hours and received his preparatory education. But do not misunderstand ; our class- mate never made a business of whiling away time. On the contrary, from the day his rosy cheeks were first kissed by the gentle zephyrs, Paul has been a studious young- ster. But with all his estimable qualities and virtues, there is one gentle resentment which fair maids bear him — even this, that Paul ' s close application to his study does not permit him to become enmeshed by the wilful machinations of Kid Cupid. Nevertheless, those rosy cheeks continue to be the cynosure of eager, girlish eyes. But Paul is by no means a woman hater. Non est. On a recent Glee Club trip, he has been seen entertaining as many as four maidens at one time. Music has always claimed a notable place with this little round fellow. He is equally left at organ, piano, and violin. Any Sunday morning you may see him in one of the city churches handing out sacred melodies at the organ. Paul never be- comes fussed except when endeavoring to ask a question in recitation. “Rosy Cheeks” blushes frequently, but this is merely indicative of childish modesty. As an editor his ability is best revealed in this volume of the Ciarla, on whose acceptance rest, in a measure, his editorial reputation. But we are satisfied to stake such reputation on this volume ' s merit. " Rosy Cheeks” future is all unknown to us. But of this we are confident, that our classmate is big enough to fill any voca- tion which shall enlist his life interest. “Please — ” “Now look here.” “Yes, well.” “Paukis” Ciarla Staff, Artist; Press Club ; Glee Club (3); Dramatic Association; Chairman Banquet Committee ; Euterpea; Frankean Society; Classical Club; Class Vice-President (1); English Essay Prize (1); Pre- pared at the Norristown High School; Classical Course. Are foil on hearers that our merits know.” — Pope. This man, who stands in a class by himself, was born and reared in beautiful Norristown. After he had successfully prepared in the High School of his na- tive town, and formed a lasting friendship with “Philip”, he entered Muhlenberg as a Freshman with us. “Paulus” has a dreamy, meditative look. Cupid has taken advantage of his charms and has woven a cordial web around him, which possibly through the inter- vention of " Puck " with his “love in idleness” caused him to forget some little af- fair in dear old Norristown. Whether Cupid aided him in securing a position in a store down town, or whether the position aided Cupid in his work is a secret to us. Wolper was elected representative of the east wing of Berks Hall thru his popu- larity with the fellows. He is a man of strong character, with lots of tact and perseverance. His motto, " try, try again,” and three years of careful training in voice culture under his friend Hassler made him a successful candidate for the Glee Club. He takes great interest in tennis, and in this sphere of athletics is a " shark.” Paul is a man of sound judgment and rare common sense. We have never gone amiss in following his suggestions in Class and Ciarla meetings, nor in depending upon him for a lion’s share of the work to be done. Much of the success of this book must be given to him. But, somehow, no work is ever so pressing that he postpones business in town on Wednesday and Saturday nights. He has a sense of humor all his own. It is said that one day he scared Schael by an attempt at wit. Altho Paul may differ from us in the manner of manifesting his college spirit, he is most loyal to his Class and to his Alma Mater. He is inclined to the min istry as his life work. May he enter that field, reflecting honor upon his Class and his Church. “O Shucks.” PAUL B.

Fie is tall, handsome, and well- built, — a firm believer in the motto that a sound mind can exist only in a strong body. “Fritzie” is a staunch advocate of deep breathing, and by some rare instinct knows the instant the temperature of a room rises one-tenth of a degree above 68 , or the carbon dioxide in the air exceeds .04 per cent. He is head ventilator of the Administration Building and gives fatherly advice to the dormitory students who are content to live in “hot, stuffy” rooms. Fred takes an active interest in athletics. In the inter-class basketball games he was one of the best shots on the floor. He is a wonderful pedestrian also; last June he walked with Behrens all the way to Wilkes-Barre. He is now searching for a companion to tour Europe afoot this com- ing vacation. If you wish to know the requirements of an ideal woman ask " Fritzie”; he ha a complete study of women. Whenever he meets one of the fair sex, he un- consciously compares her with his ideal. One heart-to-heart talk with her enables him to pass a most critical judgment on her character. His affinities have been many; but Cupid has failed to leave a lasting impression on his heart. About seven- ty-five of the fairest of Allen town’s fair are under his spiritual supervision in one of the Sunday schools. Fred is interested in all lines of college work, which fact, together with his good common sense makes him one of the leading men of our class. Since “Fritzie” was a delegate to the Rochester Convention of the Student’s Volunteer Movement, he is undecided whether he shall enter the foreign field or become a minister of the Gospel at home. His success in either is assured. “Donnervetter.” “She’s a fine girl, all right.” 59 “How memory cherishes through the changeful days, The olden friends, the olden times, and wavs.” — Praed. HENRY A.

The class which as Freshmen had begun college life so auspiciously was re- turning to verify all the predictions as to its future strength. " It’s the greatest class ever at Muhlen- berg, ’ ’ remarked one whose opinions are generally respected. ‘ ‘The brightest class ever handling text- books,’’ the faculty confided among themselves. All this time, the Class of 1912 was busy, proving the truth of these flattering words. Not much occasion was offered for glory until September 14, 1909, when stripped to the waist, the gladiators of ’ 12 and ’ 13 clashed in a bowl -fight on the gridiron. A sharp, spirited, awful fray en- The referee’s whistle blew. " Victory, decisive victory for ’ 12, ” said all present. Very modestly, con- sidering the affair, the victorious warriors of ’12 returned to their abodes. Surely, the Freshmen were completely subjugated. But wait! The asinine verdancy of some of the babes of ’13 was beginning to assume alarming proportions. Several of the mature infants even wore socks other than the regulation black, and one of the tender darlings actually stayed out one night until after dark. The wise heads of ’12 assembled in confab and decided it was time to remedy affairs. A paternal-like warning or two met without much respect at the hands of those for whose welfare it was intended. It was time for action. Tike the awful paw of pa, the wrath of ’12 descended. At the dead of night six Fresh- men were spirited from their rooms and were taken two miles into the country where their heads were most beauti- fully shorn of their growth. This deed resulted in a most enjoyable two week’s vacation for ’12. Concerning athletic honors much might be said, but brevity shall be the characterizing trait. In football these varsity men came from the Sophomore Class;Coleman, Snyder, Savacool and Fink. Coleman was elected cap- tain for the season of 1910. In basketball the class continued its glory by making a most enviable record. Shelly, Hummel, Heller, Fink, S. Frederick and Bennett took care of the class affairs in the cage. On the track Toebke, Janke, Reiter, Shelly and Keever upheld ’12’s banner. The class which in its Freshman year gave promise of such wonderful things has been continually making good the prognostications of that year. The historian predicts, but not rashly he is sure, that the Class of 1912 will continue winning honors, and that the characterizing phrase " the best ever’’ will never be one bit out of place.

It was on this day that thirty-nine bright and earnest young men, the class of 1913, began to pursue in a very commendable manner their course of studies here. A high standard of scholarship has been kept up throughout the year and will beyond all doubt continue during our college course. The first thing that met our view was the unsightly posters which had been put up by the Soph- omore class the night before we arrived. These were soon removed and in their place were found post- ers which bore the stinging phrase, “Ye Yellow-Bellied Sophs.” A few days afterwards we w 7 ere challenged by the Sophs to a bowl-fight and we accepted the challenge al- though several of our men had not yet arrived at college. Owing to this fact we were outnumbered by the Sophs, but we gave them a hard battle before they could claim a victory. The next event was the giving of a turkey to Dr. Wackernagel at Thanksgiving. On this occasion we out- witted the Sophs and spent a delightful evening at the Doctor’s home. When the time for the Sophomore banquet approached our rivals were surprised to find that we knew all their plans. They realized this fact only when one of their number was captured and kept from attending the banquet. It was our intention to have a Sophomore attend our banquet while his classmates were making merry at theirs in New York — but we all know how he was taken from us. Nevertheless our banquet at the well known hotel of Bob Hunt at Schnecksville was very successful. Every man was present and all spent a most enjoyable evening. Victory again dawned before us when we defeated the Sophs three straight games in the basketball series. We may also state that we finished in second place in the series, to the great chagrin of our rivals. In college athletics our class has made a good record for itself. When the football team was depleted our class responded nobly and that their work was effective is evident from the number of 1913 men who have received their “ M.” All indications point to the fact that our class will do well in track and other field events. As a lasting memorial for our class we have placed in the religion room a case of maps for use in the study of Bible History. The year has passed smoothly and pleasantly varied and interesting have been the incidents and the work which we have done. Meditating and reviewing the work of the year we feel safe in predicting that our class will be a credit to Muhlenberg College. United and strong we intend to follow our motto, “Ever Advancing” always for the advancement of our fellow men and for the betterment of dear Old Muhlenberg. Historian. 73 CHESTER F.

At the request of a number of teachers desirous of advancing themselves, a Saturday School for Teachers was opened October 15, 1909. The project was entirely experimental but the results have been very satisfactory indeed, and warrant the continuation of the School. Any study falling within the College sphere is taught, provided there are a sufficient number of applicants to justify the course. In 1909-10 courses were given in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, Ancient and Modern Languages and English. Following is the enrollment; CHARLES H. BILLHEIMER, Northampton, Pa.

According to agreement the members of each of the four classes were equally divided by lot between the Societies. For some reason or other, two members transferred their allegiance from one So- ciety to the other on January 15, 1868, whereupon both Societies passed motions not to permit stu- dents to withdraw themselves from their Society and connect with the other. Because of the difference == Jj in membership, the Faculty in 1878 passed a resolution forbidding either Society from taking in more than three-fifths of the members of any class; but this restriction was rescinded in 1881. At present students are permitted to join any Society they choose; but every regular student at Muhlenberg is required to become a mem- ber of one of the Societies, and once a member, cannot change from one Society to the other. The meetings of the Societies were held at first in the different classrooms; but these proved to be small and unsatisfactory and in 1869 the Faculty assigned them permanent Halls. At present the Societies occupy rooms on the third floor of the Administration Building and have furnished them at considerable expense. At different times during the earlier years the Societies jointly held open meetings to the public. Instead of these public meetings, the Societies now hold an Inter- Society Oratorical Contest each year, the winner of which represents the College in the Inter-Collegiate Oratorical Contest. The Societies in 1883 started the publication of “The Muhlenberg,” which has been continued ever since. The Societies elect the editors of the monthly and agree to meet any deficits. “The Muhlenberg,” however, soon became self-sustaining. The Society Libraries were started in 1867 when the hundred volumes on hand from the Allentown Collegi- ate Institute were equally divided between the Societies. To this small beginning books were added from year to year until now each Society owns almost three thousand volumes. The regular exercises of the Societies, consisting of essays, orations, debates, and impromtu speaking, are held each Wednesday afternoon. Neglect of duty in the Literary Society is regarded as a violation of college re- gulations, and subjects the offender to college discipline. 82 D.rsJtOt HhiUt.

HE first dramatic production presented by a Class of Muhlenberg was Herodotus given June 16, 1896 by the Class of 1899. Previous to this, the Freshman Classes held Livy Cremations. The first of these burnings to be held in a Theatre was given by the Class of 1892 which charged ad- missions of ten and twenty cents and after all expenses were paid found that each member’s share of the profits was seventeen cents. Titus Livy’s Fate thereafter became an annual feature of Commencement Week. Instead of the usual Cremation the Class of 1899 presented a play and each succeeding class has followed its example. Each year the plays became more elaborate and pretentious. Con- sidering the fact that each Sophomore Class was determined to break up the performances by shouting and by hurl- ing missiles, soft vegetables and fruits proving to be especially favored, considering that there were sharp shooters of peas and rice scattered throughout the house, the plays were rendered with remarkable success. Some classes fared better than others but the Freshman play never p roved to be a great money-making proposition; as a rule, the Classes were glad to clear expenses. In 1909, the College Play was transferred to Commencement Week and the Freshman Play was presented in February. At the meeting of the Board of Trustees on June 16, 1909, it was de- cided not to allow dramatic productions by Classes in the future. Heretofore the Dramatic Association of Muhlen- berg College was made up of Students who had taken part in the Freshman Plays; new arrangements must be made therefore in electing members to the Association. Following are the plays that have been presented by the Fresh- man Classes. By 1899 Herodotus By 1900 Chronoheteroioses By 1901 Professor E.

ROM December 29, 1909 to January 2, 1910, more than four thousand delegates, representing all important institutions of higher learning in Canada and the United States, gathered at Convention Hall, Rochester, N. Y., in the Sixth Quadrennial International Convention of the Student Vol- unteer Missionary Movement. Two delegates represented Muhlenberg. The movement was founded at Mount Hermon, Mass., in 1886, by the late D. L. Moody, since which time conventions have been held at frequent intervals in every part of the globe. It is non-sectarian and serves as a home base or recruiting agency for the foreign fields. It’s scope is as broad as the sin cursed earth. By means of well furnished exhibits, addresses, sectional conferences, bible study gatherings, literature, and the like, the convention vividly pictured and forcibly emphasized the needs of the non-christian world, as well as the principles underlying the missionary enterprise and the lines of effective and speedy conquest of the nations for Christ. Emotionalism played no part in the convention program. The large hall was at all times pervaded by a spirit of quiet prayerfulness. The aim was to enlist into the foreign mission service college men and women of daring timber, who measure the value of a life, not by the gold standard or length of years, but by service rendered in be- half of perishing souls. From the opening to the closing day there was evident a steadily rising tide of enthusiasm among the dele- gates, until at the last session nearly one hundred signified their intention of entering the foreign field within the next year, hundreds more expecting to sail during the coming four years. Since the movement began, over 4000 college graduates have entered the field. The Convention was well favored by having men of large missionary vision as its speakers. Such mission- ary statesmen as Mott, Speer, Zwemer, Eddy, Wilder, Richter and Ambassador Bryce. The Convention Motto, “The Evangelization of the World in this generation,’’ argues strongly for a world- wide awakening to foreign missionary zeal and activity — NOW ! The Orient at present is seething with unrest — excellent soil for the planting of seeds of Christian Truth — and unless the world be won in this generation of the wonderful synchronizing of world ciisis, it will be lost to Christ for Centuries. The interest and influence of the movement reaches out into the Colleges and Universities in its persistent advocacy of the formation of bible study and mission classes, in which students are enabled to keep in intelligent touch with the missionary outlook. As a result of the increasing interest in missionary activity at the College, Muhlenberg expects to be repre- sented at the Northfield Conference by a dozen students next July. Special Addresses MR.

CHOOL opened last autumn with fourteen of the old men on the Glee Club. During the height of the football season nothing was done toward re-organizing. But one day late in November the following notice appeared on the bulletin board: Glee Club Try-out For New Men, Tuesday at 1 P. M. Eberts, Manager. Tuesday came along and so did forty recruits. Dr. Marks fig- ured as impresario. Now as to some of the applicants. The first man up claimed twenty years experience with the Rising Sun Union Rand E. Church Choir we didn’t need an organ pumper so he failed to make the club. Next came a beau- tiful angelic-faced boy soprano. His selection sounded like a duet. He had a sort of du- plex voice which reminds one of a barnyard at dawn. Another one of the recruits was a blushing youth who told us between sobs that he had a cold. It was a touching scene to watch the paroxysms of the lad who had one of those mellow, timbrous, resonant, jack-ass voices, the very mention of which makes one wish he had never entered this vale of tears. After all tears had been dried the next applicant entered. He was an ambi- tious young man whose father thought he could sing, w r hose mother thought he could sing and whose maiden aunt thought he could sing. The poor chap was a good example of the influence of environment upon man. His selection was “I’m Going Home Beyond the Sea.’’ We all wished he’d go at once and cut out his blamed howling. The next man up told the director that he had a sort of “diamond-in-the-rough’ ' voice which would improve with training. One of us bystanders remarked that he believed that if said applicant trained fourteen hours a day from now until the millennium his voice pro- bably would improve but the chances were slim. This applicant was the last one who was of especial interest. It was no easy matter to make the selection. Many things had to be taken into consideration. The first factor, of course was the voice. Then came good looks, size of feet, powers of conversation and endurance. After due deliberation the first selection of s ixteen men, was made and all was ready for rehearsals. These rehearsals were held on an average of three times a week. After the first week s practice the second selection of nine out of sixteen was made. The club of twenty-three was now in readiness for the season. The 101 first thing was to have the picture taken. This was no easy matter as many of the new men had never worn full dress suits before and could hardly sit quiet for ten whole sec- onds, while the picture was taken. Anesthetics were given them and the picture was final- ly taken. You will notice these men by the hollow stare on their faces (due to the anes- thetics). They are: R. Kleckner, Snyder, Brandt, Kuder and Wolper. No, Katz is not one of them. His cramped position is due to the fact that if he had taken a full breath his coat would have split. You see there are in the possession of several members of the club, full dress suits which have been handed down from time immemorial. They are prehistoric. One of them was bought at a hock-shop sixty-five years ago when the first club was organized. A man cannot take a full breath in one of these bottle green suits for fear it will fall apart. Hence the cramped positions of some of the new men at concerts. After about two months of gruelling rehearsals the Glee Club was in readiness for its initial concert at Philadelphia. The affair was held in the New Century Drawing Rooms, January 22, 1910. The audience was a representative one and we can say with- out boasting that we made " a hit.’ “Dicker’’ Snyderwill never forget that night. It was his first appearance in public. He was visibly embarassed and became so weak with ner- vousness that he collapsed just as the curtain fell after the first half. He was resuscitat- ed with smelling salts ? ? ? ? It was at this concert also that Eberts and Katz gave their remarkable sprinting exhibition after the quartet number. The exit of the quartet is al- ways interesting. The aforesaid two, Eberts and Katz, sprint off the stage. Bob Kline, n , too tired to hurry t U ' ) stalks off in regal fashion and direc- tor Hassler bows for the whole bunch. An- other incident of this trip was that of H. Fred- erick’s lateness at the concert. The youth had never been in the city before. Eager to take in all the sights he blew himself to the amount of five cents and entered a moving picture show at two o’clock. Unfortunately he fell asleep and didn’t wake until 8.35. The trip to Philadelphia would not have been complete without Wunder telling some- one that he came from Rochester. He began by telling the hotel clerk at the Vendig. His speech (which, by the way is the same on all occasions) was “I am Frederick C. Wunder of Rochester, N. Y. Rochester is prettier than this place. It is a greater manufacturing town, etc., etc.” The last person he addressed was a Chinaman on Race Street. All these little incidents tended to enliven our trip to the City of Brotherly Love. It would not be amiss to mention here that an excellent offer for a return concert at the end of the season was made to manager. It could not be arranged, however. The second trip of the season was the Tamaqua trip. We took the C. R. R. of N. J. train to Mauch Chunk and from there took the Lightning Express (seven miles an hour) to our destina- tion. At Tamaqua the fellows were “farmed-out.’’ Some were fortunate enough to stay with people who had daughters. Those who didn’t were doubly fortunate in that they had their choice after the concert. We had an audience of seven hundred and fifty. Every number was encored. This concert gave Muhlenberg an enviable reputation in the coal regions. Among the incidents concurrent with this trip was the famous trial scene in which Ruder, the pian- ist figured as judge. He discarded seventeen different piano stools and delayed the concert just thirty-five minutes before he had pro- cured the right stool. Besides this incident the trip was uneventful . On Tuesday Feb. 8th, the Club took a boat ride by trollej to Quakertown. The Colonial Hotel was the official headquarters of the Club. Our concert was given before an audience of four hun- dred. Every number was well received. The hit of the evening was the “Cat ' s Serenade” in which one thousand, six hundred and four tin cans were used to make the number more realistic. The stage smelt like a canning factory after that selection. Brandt dis- tinguished himself on this trip by becoming madly infatuated over a little country damsel with whom he is still corresponding. “I am Frederick C. Wunder of Rochester, N. Y.” 0n Thursday, February 11th, the Club journeyed to Read- ing. We all registered at the American Hotel. The concert was given in Rajah Temple before an audience of five hundred and fifty. The Reading Eagle” voiced the sentiments of the audience when it said “The Muhlenberg College Glee Club delighted its audience as no musical organization has ever done in this city.” But if the concert was a success;, the banquet at the Wyomissing Club was doubly so. Our hosts were the Reading alumni, among whom are “Billy Rick, the Mayor; Sam” Fottinger, attorney-at-law, and Doc. Schantz, President of the State Homeopathic Society. There were a number of invited guests, repre- sentative citizens of Reading. Prof. Richmond B. Jones was toastmaster. When director Hassler was called upon for a speech he gave a brilliant discourse on “the philosophy of the human soul.” He has given this speech thirty- seven times. At exactly twelve o ' clock the two Kleckuer boys began to bow their heads and in a short time both were in the land of nod. Janke, Katz and Waidelich amused themselves by pouring potato salad over the faces of the sleeping banqueters. Between speeches Urieh tried to bring about a renaissance of seventeenth century jokes. We got back to the hotel at 2 A. M. But nobody could sleep. The whole fourth floor reverberated with unearthly noises at the sounds of which President Aberly was exceedingly wroth, but could do naught to stop the sounds for he knew not from whence they came. It is now rumored about that Brobst and Butz made the racket. We left Reading at 9 A. M. the next morning. As the train pulled out of the station Eberts burst into tears and cried out “farewell, my own true love " to which Romig solemnly said “Amen.” We stopped off a short time at Allentown and then left for East Stroudsburg. We arrived there at four o’clock. After rehearsing at the opera house we were fortunate enough to strike “the” trolley car. The car made slow headway due to the fact that it was overladen with suit cases but we finally reached our destination, the “Indian Queen Hotel.” We partook of a frugal meal (force of circumstances) and there waited for “the” trolley car. Now it happened that it snowed fierce- ly and so the aforesaid car was a half hour late. Sti ll it snowed and snowed and it was half past eight before we reached our destination. Because of the deep snow our audience was small and Bennett, who was running the con- cert just managed to skin through without running into debt. Everybody knows “Quig” at Stroudsburg and if we had had fair weather the house would have been full to overflowing. After the concert some of the fellows took the trolley to the hotel; others who were in a bigger hurry waded thru the snow. After we had all arrived at the hotel a quartet composed of Hassler, Brobst, Urich and R. Kleckner began singing “Old Black Joe.” By doing this they did the proprietor and the guests an inestimable favor for their paroxysms were so intense that it drove all the rest of the club to bed. All spent a peaceful night but “Rosy Cheeks” Weber who was obliged to read proofs for this 1911 Ciarla until dawn. On Saturday, April 2nd, the club invaded the peaceful precincts of Sellersville. Here we made a big hit; everyone voted our club and concert the greatest thing since the Civil War. But the climax of the season was reached in the Allentown concert. This being our home concert, was more important than all the rest combined; and the people certainly did “sit up ana take notice.” Every number was encored and many in the large audience who had heard Penn’s, Lehigh’s, Lafayette’s, and other Glee Clubs pro- nounced our concert the “best yet.” The trips for the rest of the season were Wilkes-Barre, Nazareth, Kutztown, Lansdale and Ephrata. We had good houses at all these places and we feel sure that these concerts added still more laurels to our crown. Our concerts netted us a good profit which was turned over, as customary, to the Athletic Association. But is money-making the only object of the Club? By no means. The Glee Club is primarily an advertising factor. From all standpoints we feel that the season of 1910 was the most successful in the history of the Glee Club.

Professor of Physical Education and Track Coach 121 Athletics at Muhlenberg BY PROF. WM. H. REESE The outlook for athletics at Muhlenberg College was never as bright as at present. The Alumni and friends of the college are taking an active interest in athletics, shown by their support of the various teams both financially and in attendance at games. The Fac- ulty favor athletics and rejoice with the students at the success of our teams. A whole- some college spirit is growing, although many still place class above College. The only way a more rapid growth can take place is by every one — students, Alumni, F ' aculty and friends — centering their love and devotion on their Alma Mater. Muhlenberg has not only been making progress at home: but since the foundation of the Pennsylvania Inter-Collegiate Athletic Association, she has been represented on the executive committee of that Association. She has also joined the Inter-Collegiate Association of the United States and sends a delegate to their meetings. In order that we could co-operate in carrying out the work of the above Association, it was necessary that modifications be made in our eligibility rules. The eligibility rules are as follows: 1. In the athletic teams of this institution only those students shall be eligible who are regularly registered, and attending at least fourteen hours per week. 2. No student shall be eligible who is deficient in more than one subject. 3. No special student who is deficient or conditioned shall be eligible- 4. No student shall be eligible who has received money or other compensation for competing or instructing in any athletic sport. 5. No student deficient or conditioned shall be eligible for the Captaincy of any team. The rules as to scholarship also apply to the Glee Club and to the Dramatic Association. As intellectual development is the chief aim of the College the Inter-Collegiate Athletic Association of the United States urged that there be more careful Faculty control of Student Organizations so that long schedules ne- cessitating several day’s absence from College, that the playing of those taking no work at the institution, and that looseness in the business affairs with managers and teams of other institutions might be eliminated. The Board of Trustees of Muhlenberg College created such a Committee known as the Faculty Committee on Student Organizations, consisting of three members of the Faculty. To this Committee certain powers have been given: ' POP " REESE ‘The Father of Muhlenberg Athletics” 122 1. The Committee is responsible directly to the Board of Trustees for their actions. 2. They have the power of suspension and expulsion without the consent of the Faculty, and from their decision there is no appeal except to the Board of Trustees. 3. The list of men playing in various athletic teams, both College and Class, members of the Glee Club, those taking part in the performances of the Dramatic Association; the schedules of the Athletic teams after being approved by the Executive Committee of the Muhlenberg College Athletic Association, the schedules of Class teams, Glee Club and Dramatic Association; the officers elected by the Athletic Association, Glee Club, Dramatic Association, the coaches and trainers of the various teams, Glee Club, and Dramatic Association, all must be presented for the approval of the Faculty Committee. While from the above it will be seen that the Committee has complete control, it has never had to show its authority in the selection of coaches and officers: the arrangement of schedules has always been acceptable It has not interfered in any way with the activities of the student body but has always encouraged every form of college activity. The Committee’s function is merely to see that no interest shall be carried to the extreme and interfere with the other legitimate work of the College. It may be asked why have the scholarship eligibility rules of Athletics been applied to the Glee Club and Dramatic Association? It may be answered by asking another question, why hold Athletics up to top notch and let other organizations do as they please? What is fair for one organization is fair for all organizations. If members of the athletic teams are not permitted to have several conditions, why should the members of the Glee Club or Dramatic Association? If athletic teams cannot spend several days away from the institution, why should the Glee Club or Dramatic Association be permitted to do so? The Faculty Committee made a ruling that no Class team should play away from the Campus. This was done so that Muhlenberg would not be misrepresented. If defeated, the victorious team is liable to report that it defeated Muhlenberg College and not Muhlenberg 19 — . Other institutions have adopted the same rule. It was also found necessary to forbid special students from playing in the inter-class games. The reason for this is that it might lead to great abuse. For instance, if the series were close, a Class might enter and duly register a man, who would continue until after the series and then drop out. Incidentally that Class would have won the series. This has happened at other institutions The special students, however, are allowed to form teams and take part in the Inter-Class contests. In the future the Faculty Committee will support every effort in Athletics, Glee Club, and Dramatic Associ- ation as it has done in the past; and will co-operate with the Alumni, Friends, and Students in their efforts to honor dear Muhlenberg. Long may she live! 123 Awarding of “M’s,” “Scrub M’s and “Numerals” FTER January I, 1909, any student of Muhlenberg College who, during the course of a season, has played six entire halves of football, twenty-seven innings of baseball, taken first place in an inter-collegiate track meet, or who has play- ed four entire seasons on the Scrub, shall receive his Varsity initial “M ”, provided that the candidate for said “M;” 1st.

At the beginning of the 1909 season the outlook for Muhlenberg was very dark. Of lastyear s regular team, Aberly and Snyder were the only ones who reported when our warriors took the field. Roy Shupp had played at half-back after Putra’s injury and Coleman had substituted at various positions but the rest were for the most part inexperienced men, some of whom had yet to learn the very rudiments of the game. On the whole, a season of straight defeats was expected and it was due almost entirely to the genius of coach Bull and the great spirit exhib- ited by team, college, faculty, alumni and all concerned that the result was not a failure but a highly successful season. About the middle of September the squad was called out and about thirty-five men reported. Immediately the work of whipping the men into shape began. Great as was the handi- cap of Greenness, inexperience, etc. a strong team was devel- oped for the WEBB ACADEMY GAME on October 2nd. In this game Muhlenberg did not get going till the second half when she scored on a blocked kick. Her goal was never seriously threatened. This game gave the men confidence and also showed them some of their weak points. Webb came down much stronger than expected and outweighed us by at least ten pounds. THE MEDICO-CHI GAME On the next Saturday, October 9th, Muhlenberg was put to its first real test of strength. Medico-Chi came up from Philadelphia outweighing us twenty pounds and the pessimists Capt. ABERLY predicted a sure defeat. But it was far otherwise. In the first two minutes of play Captain Haines of Chi got away on a thirty-yard run for a ened Muhlenberg and in spite of her handicap in weight she more than held her own. On a beautifully executed onside kick, Shupp recovered the ball on Chi’s 5-yard line. Coleman then plunged over the line, tying the score, since Swartz had missed his try for goal on Chi’s touchdown. However, we also failed to kick the goal and the game Capt. -Elect COLEMAN touchdown. This awak- 129 ended in a tie, 5-5. On the following Monday, a blow fell upon the Muhlenberg team which was thought to be the death-knell of the 1909 season. This was the suspension of the en- tire Sophomore Class including guard Snyder and Savacool; Ends Fink and Bennett and Full-back Coleman of the regular team, and five members of the “Scrub, or whatever they choose to call themselves.” Coach Bull was greatly disheartened, but at this very time when things were darkest, the college exhibited the proper Muh- lenberg spirit by having a full squad on the field of the day following the sus- FASIG B1XLER pension. LEHIGH RESERVE GAME However a much weaker BRANDT team trotted on the field to play the Lehigh Reserves on the Saturday following. The Reserves were taken on at the last minute so as not to dis- appoint the expectant crowd, since Jefferson Medical had DE1BERT cancelled. Although Lehigh greatly outweighed us, w r e held them to a standstill, the game resulting 0 0. In this game Muhlenberg’s line showed up particularly well, holdingand repulsing their heavier opponents whenever they were assailed. THE SUSQUEHANNA GAME On Saturday October 23rd, Muhlenberg’s weakened team met their first defeat of the season. The game was played in a pouring rain and the new men’s unfamiliarity with the prevailing conditions caused their defeat. 130 BIXLER PUNTING IN MUHLENBERG— F. AND M. GAME. 131 THE FRANKLIN AND MARSHALL GAME Susquehanna scored twice on end runs in the first half. In the second half, however, Muhlenberg easily outplayed them and had the weather been in any way more con- genial, would have won out. As it was, we scored one touchdown, on a forward pass and narrowly missed another because a slippery forward pass went wide. Susque- hanna twice approached our goal line but were held for downs both times. Our team showed up well, consid- ering the weather and the weakness of the team without the Sophomores. THE FRANKLIN AND MARSHALL GAME In the big game of the year with Franklin and FINK Marshall College, of Lancas- ter on October 30tli, Muhlen- berg was for the second time KERSTETTER forced to lower her standards. Franklin and Marshall early in the game laid bare a hitherto undiscovered weakness on our part, open-field tackling, and by utilizing their knowledge, rolled up a score of 33-0. KOHLER Whenever they resorted to line plunging they were beaten back. It was only by wide end runs and long forward passes they could gain. A fluke touch-down at the very start tendered to dishearten our men. To do our opponents justice, they had the open game down to a science, but when QUINN we consider their superiority in age and experience and compare our score with that of other colleges against them, the result is not so bad as appeared at first blush. And the score does not really indi- cate the closeness of the struggle. At no point of the game could F. M. rest on their oars. Time and time 133 again did we hold them for downs and we gained frequently, at one time making four successive first downs. Bixler outpunted Richards, but, enough of this; we lost. We shall do better next year. We had the best attendance of the year. Alumni of both institutions living in Allentown helped to make the affair a success in the attendance line. A striking feature was the appearance of the student body of the Allentown College for Women in three tally-hos and a touring-car. Almost to a woman they hooted hard and consistently for Muh- lenberg. Even when our defeat was assured, they SAVACOOL continued to cheer and you may be sure this went very far towards soothing the sting A SHUPP of defeat. There was a par- ade between the halves which was indeed inspiring, in fact the whole day was so glorious that it seemed Muhlen- berg had to win, but THE TEMPLE GAME The Sophomores were back for this game, and Savacool, Fink and Coleman re- gained their positions, but the two weeks relaxation had made its mark and the team had not yet developed to its greatest strength. SK.EAN On the following Saturday, Muhlenberg had little trouble defeating Temple Uni- versity 26-0. Although weakened by the absence of the upper classmen on the team by reasons of injuries, the Sophomore-Freshman aggregation simply walked through their heavier opponents. Skean showed up strong in the game. 134 SCENES FROM THE BIG GAME, THE RUTGERS GAME On November 10th, our team journeyed all the way to New Brunswick, New Jersey, only to be defeated there by Rutgers College 35-5. Rutgers was the heaviest team we met this season, outweighing us by at least thirty pounds. In one position we were outweighed ninety pounds. In consequence of this, Rutgers gained more through our line than any other team this year. They also made quite a few end runs. Muhlenberg fought hard, as they did in the F. and M. game. Bixler played a great game. THE WYOMING GAME On November 20th at Wilkes-Barre, we dropped a game to Wyoming Seminary. It was a grueling contest and resulted 23-0. Although Muhlenberg put up her usual hard fight she was unable to overcome the superior weight and experience of her opponents. Although a Seminary, Wyoming had a team of which many colleges would be proud. Haines played a good game for Wyoming, while Williams excelled for Muhlen- berg. THE INDIAN RESERVE GAME On Thanksgiving Day, Muhlenberg gained a victory which will re-echo down through the halls of college traditions for some time to come. On this day for the first time in her history Muhlenberg defeated a team from Carlisle. The game was played on a field covered with several inches of snow and ice and it looked like a sure victory for the Indians, since they far outweighed us and as has been said, had always defeated Muhlenberg in former years. But our men had determined to do or die. It was the last game and they went into the game as if they cared little whether they came out alive or not. Their running with the ball was fast and heady, their tackling was hard and sure, and their line held like a stone wall of defense and tore great holes on offense. In fact, it was through the line that we made our greatest gains. Near the end of the first half the Indians made several long end runs which resulted in a touchdown, but after this the ball never came into our territory. Muhlenberg scored two touchdowns and a safety, making the total 13-5, a glorious victory and a fitting close to a great season. SNYDER WILLIAMS 136 Some people might take issue with us because we have several times alluded to the past season as great and successful. It was great and successful. Although we lost by large scores to F. and M., Rutgers and Wyoming, our victories against the Indians, Webb and Temple and our tie with Medico-Chi showed that when the team “got going’’ it was capable of playing real, winning football. Rutgers beat us, but Medico-Chi. whom we tied, also tied Rutgers. Then, again, this has been in many respects, a formative year. Next year the whole team, except Cap- tain Aberly and End Sliupp, will be on the field and the knowledge and experience gained this year will produce one of the most successful teams in the history of Muhlenberg. The season of 1909 was by no means a deterioration from that of the past years, nor should the team be val- ued too lightly in comparing it with teams of former years. Last year’s team developed by Barclay, polished by Bull, made the record of two victories, one tie, and six defeats. This year’s team established the record of three victories, two ties, and four defeats. All this out of green material, new men and handicaps of weight, suspensions injuries, etc! Magnificent coaching truly. All honor and glory to Coach Bull.

HE development of track athletics at Muhlenberg falls in line with her principle of develop- ment in all phases of collegiate activity, namely, that it is in keeping with prudence to enter upon the pursuit of one sport at a time, and do that well, before assuming new ones. As soon, there- fore, as Muhlenberg’s reputation as a supporter of strong and clean football had become substanti- ated, she took upon herself the further task of building up track athletics. The history of track at Muhlenberg begins with the year 1908 when the first representatives were sent to the “Penn” relays and to the Inter-Collegiate Meet at Harrisburg. For the first two years it was in a measure, a matter of “also ran,” but improvements were readily noticeable. During the season now closing things have taken a definite turn in the right direction. The team, representing Muhlenberg at the “Penn ” Re- lays, showed excellent form, coming in close upon the heels of the first placers. Nothing but a wide start from the pole prevented the team from returning with the banner. With better results each year as her policy, Muhlenberg will next year add such a banner to her growing collection of trophies. The present team to the man will be here to prove the claim. In the May Dual meet with Delaware College, Muhlenberg began the scoring with a sweeping lead and kept it secure to the close. This victory gave Muhlenberg her first Track banner. She expects to add another when she lines up with Juniata College in June. A living interest in track, and faithful attendance at practice is essential to the sport if it is to be worthwhile. It would be showing greater favor to the coach, if men, who signify good intentions of training and pile up sworn oaths, should never appear, than to come out for a period, and then suddenly disappear. When the coach “eyes up” a man, he takes him into his plans for the future, and counts on him. While it were unreasonable to dispa- rage any one in past efforts, however feeble, it is in season to strike a note for the betterment of our team. The manager has already opened negotiations for return dual meets next year with Delaware and Juniata on their tracks. It is likely that Gettysburg, and Franklin and Marshall will compete with Muhlenberg here. Now that there is growing up at Muhlenberg a more compact college spirit, and furthermore, because of the hearty interest which our local alumni particularly, are manifesting, it is wholly reasonable to predict a bright fu- ture for our track activity as well as for our other athletic pursuits. 147 The First Inter-Collegiate Track Meet at Muhlenberg, Muhlenberg Field; May 7, 1910.

MONO the various activities at and around Muhlenberg during the past winter, the Inter-Class Basketball games occupied a prominent position, second only to the Glee Club rehearsals and Geary Everett’s haas-im-peffer parties in other fellows’ rooms. The origin of the series is shrouded in mystery, but just before Christmas it was announced to the student body that some benefactor of the human race had donated a cup to be contested for by the classes in a series of basketball games. From now on until the beginning of the series all was “vanity and vexations of spirit’’ The different classes began to look around for men and in some cases the same classes also looked around for men, which only added to the general confusion. 1910 had lost her (or its) whole team. When he left, 1910 made a vow never to have a basketball team again. But a couple of the men who had stood around on the floor while Rulie was playing, pre sented the class with a number of excellent reasons why 1910 should put their shoul- ders to the wheel and “play along.” After a careful and systematic search five men were found who knew the diff- erence between a basketball and a pumpkin, and the 1910 basketball team was launched amid universal rejoicing. 1911 was undecided whether to have a team or not. The intellectual and moral pursuits of some of the bas- ketball players of this class usurped their spare moments and at first they refused to be intimidated. But at a grand mass-meeting of the class, nineteen strong, the matter was presented to them in such a light, that with tears in their eyes they begged on bended knees to be allowed to play. After mature consideration they were allowed. 1912 from the beginning went around with knowing looks in their eyes. “Yes” said they, 1910 has never been defeated, and we admit that 1911 is our moral, intellectual and physical superior, and the Freshman look good, but” — and with a chuckle they departed to get into a basketball suit. The class exhibited a great spirit, for twenty- two men tried for the team and were out to practice. Some other classes, not a thousand miles from Allentown, could well profit by this example. 1913 entered the contest with her usual “vigor and vim.” When the season was about half over somebody mentioned the fact to Young Skean that the class might not win the cup. This fired Mr. Skean’s patriotism and he consented to play. The season opened about the middle of January. In the first game 1911 defeated 1913 in a well played game. Sir Toby Kline was the hero. Two days later the really good 1912 legion took the sparse remnants of a once glo- rious 1910 team into camp. About this time the mid-year examinations threatened to interfere with the series. At first it was the opinion of the student body that they should be dispensed with (the exams, of course) but after 153 the faculty decided that in that case some of us would flunk, it was generally felt that exams were not such a bore after all. Two classes, however, decided that studies should not interfere with their regular work and on Tuesday, of exam week 1912 triumphed over 1911 in an exciting close and well-played game. 1911 had hard luck in this game, because if they had waited till the following week 1912 would have been without the services of Blitz and Sanders, who went away directly after the exams. Kline again came to the front, in this game by having his nose maltreated by Charlie Frederick’s head. As the series continued 1911 obtained a lead by defeating the Freshmen three times before any other team got a chance at them. This aided both classes materially — 1911 got an increase in their lead, while 1913 got the experience which enabled them later to defeat the other teams. After dropping three games to the Juniors, the Freshmen rallied and, strengthened by the loss of Captain Klingler who went away on a vacation, defeated the Sophomores three times straight. They also took two out of three from the Seniors. Although 1911 gained the lead after the third game and were never headed, the result of the series was in doubt until the last game, just before the Easter vacation, in which 1911 defeated 1910 by a safe margin in a dignified, gen- teel, upper-class game, which gave them the cup. Had they lost, they would have been tied with 1913 for the lead. 1912 sprang a big surprise when they defeated 1911 in the third last game, completely outplaying the upper-classmen. The Juniors were overconfident and also suffered from ophthalmia basketialis, which is an affection of the eye which causes a distorted vision of a basket to come before one’s sight. 1910, principally through the clever shooting of R. Shupp made a strong bid for honors, but the pace told on them and they finished last. 1911 got an early lead and sustained it till the end, although several times they had cause for trepidation. Kline, Brandt and Wunder were the highest scorers, while Captain A. Butz and Eberts excelled in floor-work. 1912 rallied remarkably well from the loss of F. Butz and Sanders. Although they were defeated three times by the Freshmen, they had the better of the winner in the series. Shelly did the best scoring and Fink was the floor- worker. The team played together well. 1913 received all their defeats at the start of the season. But when they had finished with the hardest team, they showed their worth by defeating their natural foes decisively, refusing to allow them a single game. Reno and Keim were their star performers. Esser guarded well although his weakness in shooting kept him from being a star. From the April “Muhlenberg’’: — ‘The Junior team was in all probability the best balanced team that repre- sented any one class. There were no particular stars on the team, but every player was able to throw a goal when 154 Winners of the Inter-Class Basketball Series 155 1911 Basketball Team CAPTAIN MANAGER ARTHUR N.

It would have been necessary to purchase uniforms and equipment for the entire team besides footing a sure deficit which would be found at the end of the season. Although there was no College Team, great interest was taken in Baseball by the different classes. Of course, to the Juniors the Minister- Pagan game on May 25th was the greatest game of the year ; it was the greatest in at least one thing — in the number of errors. The Sophomores and Freshmen were represented by good teams and played games with Allentown High School, Allentown Preparatory School, and Allentown Y. M. C. A. A series of three games was arranged between the Sopho- mores and Freshmen. Each team has won a game, leaving the final outcome of the series still in doubt. The third game will be played during Commencement Week. April 20 May 13 The Scores Sophomores 10; Freshmen 2 Sophomores 3; Freshmen 7 Sophomores O. C. Janke C. W. Heller (Capt.) E. J.

Endlick, of Reading, president of the board, Reuben J. Butz, of this city pres- ided. Rev. Dr. Weiskotten offered prayer and the greetings were extended by M. Butz. O. F. Bernheim, treasurer of the college, presented his report. The report was the same as that presented at the synodical meeting and published several weeks ago. The executive committee reported the resignations of Dr. Ochsenford and Dr. Lear, which were accepted. George N. Haasz, instructor in History and English, who had been engaged only for one year, will also leave. Cyrus Williston, instructor in Science during the past year in place of Prof. William Reese, has completed his work at Muhlenberg and Prof. Reese will resume his former position. The board decided not to allow dramatic productions by classes or by the Allentown Preparatory School in the future. Hereafter only the annual college play will be presented during commencement week by the dramatic association. The Secretary of the board was instructed to send greetings to Dr. E. T. Horn, of Reading, a member of the board, who is confined to the German Hospital in Philadelphia. The matter of erecting a building for the Preparatory School on the college grounds was referred to the exec- utive committee. Work on the proposed new Preparatory School is to begin in the spring of 1910. Prof. A. A. Kunkle, principal of the Allentown Preparatory School, presented his annual report. It shows that there were 103 students enrolled during the scholastic year which has just closed, which is the largest number of students in the school s history. The financial condition of the school is especially encouraging at this time. The new prepara- tory building will be erected on the plot of ground west of the president’s home. During the year two bequests were received. One was from Hon. C. A. Schieren, of Brooklyn, who in- creased his bequest from $40,000 to $43,500. In his will the late Ammon W. Geiger, of Norristown, bequeathed $5,000 to the college. St. John’s Lutheran Church has inaugurated the Stephen A. Repass scholarship endowment fund of $1,500. It is given as a memorial to the late Rev. Dr. Repass, who was pastor of St. John’s Church, on Muhlenberg’s faculty, and president of the board. During the year the board lost three members, C. A. Fon Dersmith, of Lancaster, by death, Rev. M. C. Horne, formerly of Reading, who moved to South Carolina, and H. B. Tyson, of Norristown, who resigned. The following men were elected to fill the vacancies: E. K. Snell, Pottstown, ' P. Harry Wohlsen, Lancaster; J. J. Butz, Reading. The former officers and committees were named for the coming year. Their names are given on page eleven of this volume. 165 -jr 9 % %, wm- -rh The Annual Promenade. MUHLENBERG CAMPUS Wednesday Evening, June 16, 1909.

N a beautiful day in the winter of 1909 (January 22nd), when the ground was covered with a thick man- tle of snow, the children of 1912 got an idea. They were thoroughly convinced that their superiors, the illustrious Class of 1911 were leaving for their banquet. Just how they got this valuable informa- tion not one of them would venture to relate. Probably one of their classmates who had been dissipa- ting the night before had a dream in which he beheld them banqueting in a far-off country or probab- ly Fink had read it in the stars. At any rate they put the utmost confidence in their conviction. The noble Seniors told them we weren’t going but the Freshies were Ambitious. They perambulated about the place with the air of people who know. A Class meeting was hastily called and a plan adopted. They proposed to catch a certain number of us; grab the Treasurer by the neck; appropriate his funds; and have a banquet of their own on the money. Bennett proposed the plan but all the rest thought it was ideal. They procured clubs, ropes, and gags, and assembled in front of the Dormitories promptly at one o’clock. Captain Fink ordered Sentry Sensenbach and Sentry Brossman to guard the Main Building while he and his main army stationed themselves in front of the Arcade. About this time 1911 began to get interested in all these prep- arations and two of them walked out of the Arcade to see what was going on, The Freshies now had become all inaction, and the two Sophs walked through the whole bunch unmolested and continued their stroll down town. Big Baringer turned around once and looked at a couple and they almost had the wits scared out of them, Just at this moment Sentry Brossman raised an alarm, — John Beiber was coming out of the Main Building. Miller came to the rescue and Brossman in a voice as clear as mud enjoined Mr. Beiber to appear at the Domitories. John simply said “Condemnation, I forgot”; knocked Brossman sprawling in the snow; turned to strike at Miller but Miller had disappeared as if by magic. The 1911 calendar Staff had business down town that afternoon and Fred Wunder and Cholly Grant had to to attend to it. They did everything to notify the Freshies that they were going to leave for they wanted to see some fun. The Freshies had not done a thing yet, so Snyder made a long and stirring oration on Patriotism . Things now began to look different; “Stumpy Kline spit on his hands and Frederick took off his coat. It was long past the hour for Dr. Bauman’s Class but “what is Algebra, when we have an affair like this to attend to said Snyder. “Well, I don’t care” exclaimed Janke, ”1 don’t have my lesson out for to-day anyway About 2.30 Wunder and Grant came through the Arcade. The Freshies were trembling with fear. What 181 if they should hit us”, said Wertz in a trembling voice, “why I — I — wouldn’t know what to do.” But Snyder’s stirring address had its effect. They sneaked up from all sides upon Wunder and Grant as they came out from under the Arcade and although five of the Freshies were knocked senseless, our two classmates were overpowered and were escorted to Fink’s room, to enjoy a quiet rest after the struggle. My! but weren’t the Freshies tickled! My! the tales they related of their wonderful feat, — how sorry they were that Fred and Cholly couldn’t be along with their classmates at the banquet, and all that. After hearing these wonderful tales for about an hour, Chollie told the Freshies that they had missed connec- tions, and that there was to be no banquet that day. Well, you should have seen the P ' resh, then! That night very few of them went to supper, and those who did wished they had done without it, for they were the jest of the whole college. Somehow they are not so anxious to speak of their wonderful exploit any more. The Fresh planned revenge. “They fooled us once,” said Brossman, “but we’ll catch them yet.” A meet- ing was called in Fink’s room; Leiby, Brossman and Wertz were appointed as vigilance committee: and Bill Bowsher as secret service agent. But t he good, trusty Banquet Committee of 1911 kept everything secret and the Fresh couldn’t learn a thing regarding the time or place of the banquet. On March 4th, five Sophs were invited to a party in town. They de- cided to have a little fun before buncoing the Fresh completely, so they took Bill Bowsher and Big Chief Brossman with them. After the affair, Brossman and Bowsher were kindly invited to escort the ladies that lived in the direc- tion opposite to that taken by the Sophs. Unsuspectingly they complied and in a confident mood betook them- selves to Muhlenberg. But the Sophs didn’t show up at Muhlenberg that night. Next morning at 8.00 we left for Philadelphia. At 9.40 the Fresh assembled as usual in Chapel ; but nary a Soph put in his appearance. “Well, where are the Sophomore, anyway,’’ asked one. “I don’t know unless — unless — could they have gone on their banquet?’ ’ replied another. “Well I’ll be darnkd,’’ said Brossman, “if they didn ' t outwit us again.’’ We arrived at the “City of Brotherly Love’’ at 9.55, and after sending greetings to the well-behaved child- ren of 1912 took in the various historical landmarks of the city. Many were the guests of friends at the University of Pennsylvania during the day ; others visited the Parks, Art Galleries, and League Island where a part of the world s fleet was lying at anchor. At 10.00 P. M. the entire Class except Hamm and the fever, patients Behrens, Rentschler and Wolper met at the Windsor. Promptly at 10.30, we marched into the dining room, which was beautifully decorated with college pennants and potted plants. We did full justice to the excellent menu, and re- sponded to the toasts in 191 I s happy style. We have marked March 5th as the red letter day of our Sophomore year. 182 Sophomore Banquet, Class of 1912. The St. Dennis, New York, Friday, March 11, 1910. Menu.

Every- body was happy including Wacky and Bob Hunt: Wacky went home rather early, to the sorrow of die Chuniors but Bob Hunt was there when we left. But let us recapitulate somewhat. Considerably prior to this Allemanian symposium a so-called baseball game transpired on the greensward near the chemical laboratory. This exhibition was the feature of the day, as the school looked at it. It was impossible to adhere strictly to the traditional arbitrary division of Minister vs. Pagan, since out of our vast multitude eight intend to be ministers while the eleven others intend not to be. So a deputation of zealous min- isters after a long struggle succeeded in pointing out to Kid Miller the error of his ways and persuaded him to be a missionary. They realized “the error of his ways” later on in the game, — but more of that later. Although the morning rain had loosened up the field somewhat, Groundkeepers Katz 1 3 and Meek 1 3 with the aid of a tea- spoon and the college ash-pile succeeded in getting the field into play-on-able shape or rather condition because they didn’t change the shape particularly. At 1 .30 sharp Captain Grant, attired in a fetching costume led the ministers in battle array from his room to the campus. At a prearranged signal Captain Eberts led the pagans from Brandt’s room at the same minute. Then the pageant proceeded to the scene of action taking in the Administration building and the Chemical Laboratory on the way. The Pagans took the field and retired the Ministers in one-two-three order. In their half of the first inning they piled up three runs, a lead that was never cut down. The Ministers never had a chance with the Pagans, who outclassed them in hitting and fielding. The teamwork of Bieber and Bauman was particularly good. Hartsell played a remarkable game in right, not having a single error. For the Ministers, Romig excelled, accepting almost every chance that came his way with the grace and ease of a sylph. In addition to the remarkable exhibition of baseball the affair was of great social importance. Among those who occupied boxes were many of the Muhlenberg ultra-fashionables. Mrs. Charlemagne Tower Romig was charmingly gowned in ultramarine blue, with ecru trimmings and French mansard inser- tion. Mrs. Darlington Reameston Grant was charming in a green tulle creation with point de feat lace trimmings. Her chapeau was by Madame Ringling Bros. Mrs. G. Griselda Eberts wore a tight-fitting Paris sheath-gown which gave the assembled multitude of chivalry and beauty (mostly chivalry) the full benefit of her splendid lines. During intervals she covered her face with a wire shield, so that the attention of the proletariat might be directed to her figure. 186 Miss Sylvia Grace Baringer was charmingly decollete in an abbreviated Jersey corsage. Photographers had to be repulsed continually from snapping her. A beautiful Muhlenberg sweater was presented by Mrs. Romig to the pitcher of the victorious team. Among those present was our old friend Billy Bieber, the Shamrock benedict, who replaced Romig in right field and made a hit and a few remarks. The full, pure and unadulterated score of the massacre is appended, as witnessed by Mr. Butch Cressman, official scorer : MINISTERS PAGANS NAME AB R 1 H 1 o 1 A 1 E NAME AB 1 R H 1 o | A E Butz, c 2 1 o 1 1 6 5 1 0 Lawall, 2b. . . 3 1 3 1 ; 3 i 0 1 Wolper, p. ss . . . 4 1 0 1 1 2 3 1 0 Eberts, c 5 1 2 1 2 I 9 j 3 2 Grant, lb 4 1 1 1 10 2 1 2 Brandt, p 3 1 1 ! 2 1 1 1 6 0 Baringer. 2b 3 1 o | 1 0 1 2 | 3 Bieber, J. rf, cf. 4 1 1 | 1 1 o | 0 0 Wunder, 3b 4 1 0 1 0 4 8 1 2 Stuart, If., cf. . 4 1 1 1 1 1 0 | 0 1 Miller, ss. p 3 1 1 1 0 0 i i 0 Ammarel, ss. . . 5 1 3 1 2 I 1 3 0 Hamm, cf 3 1 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 Rentschler, 3b. 5 1 4 1 2 1 2 1 1 2 Weber, If 2 o 1 0 1 0 1 1 Hartzell, rf. . . . 0 1 0 o 1 o | 0 0 Romig, rf 3 1 0 i 0 0 0 1 0 Kline, lb 4 1 1 | 1 1 II 0 0 Bieber, W., rf 2 1 0 1 1 1 0 1 0 Bauman, If., cf. 2 1 0 1 o 1 0 0 0 T otals 30 I 2 I 6 24 20 1 8 Totals 37 i 16 1 12 | 27 13 1 6 SCORE BY INNINGS 1 n III IV V VI | VII 1 VIII 1 IX Totals Ministers .... 0 1 o 0 o 1 | 1 | 0 1 o | 0 2 Pagans 3 1 0 1 0 1 2 3 | 1 | 4 1 3 | X 16 Double play, Ammarel to Kline.

It seems a shame that so large a portion of our grounds should lie useless and neglected when it could be so splendidly utilized. I refer to the meadows along Cedar Creek. I believe there are mighty few fellows who realize what splendid opportunities for fun and recrea- tion those meadows could be made to afford. But if there were a four foot dam across the meadow we would realize them quickly enough. Then, when the weary student would trudge through the snow, how quickly all the fatigue of the long hours of study would vanish at the prospect of healthful and exhilarating exercise on the frozen H20. It would certainly go a long way toward dispelling the gloom of winter. And, when Old Sol would torment us with his blistering rays, BY JINGO, but wouldn’t the cool water refresh our weary limbs. How pleasant to rest in the embrace of the water and feel the waves rippling softly against our breasts. “Es lachelt der See, er ladet zum Bade, Der Knabe schlief ein am grunen Gestae, Da hort er ein Klingen, Wie Fotlen so suss, Wie Stimmen der Engel Im Paradies. Und wie er erwachet in seliger Lust Da spulen die Wasser ihm um die Brust, Und er ruft aus den Tiefen Lieb Knabe, bist mein Ich locke den Schlafer Ich zieh’ ihn herein.” And then, fellows, think of the morning row upon the pleasant waters. There are many exercises and each has its peculiar charm but by common consent rowing is acknowledged to be one of the best exercises and one of the pleasantest and most healthful diversions to be found anywhere. Such a picture as this is not a mere creation of the fancy, but could be made a solid and enduring fact. It wouldn’t cost more than many other improvements now planned and would be a source of pleasure that can hardly be overestimated. All that is necessary is fora sufficient number of students and alumni to become thoroughly in- terested in this project and she’ll go through all right We need more gayety at school and more pleasures. Don’t neglect to make use of the opportunities which lie around us. Let’s utilize every opportunity we can, and, when we’ve done that, let’s drink deep of the oil and the wine of the gladness of life. German student will please insert Umlauts. 193 JOHN E. BAUMAN A Faculty Divided Against Itself The day for the Inter-Faculty basketball game dawned bright and clear. The whole college was on edge for the contest and interested in the outcome, for the victors were to play the inter-class Champions for the champion- ship of the college. From lordliest Seniors down to meekest Freshman, the student body did everything in their power to help the contest along. They even stayed away from c lasses for two days preceding the encounter so that the warriors might be in the best possible condition for the fray. Johnny Bauman, 2nd, had taken up a collection to buy new whistles for the referee and timekeeper, and the regular baskets had been replaced by others twice as large. Beer (T3) was on hand, in fact everything possible had been done to make the affair a success. The usual notice, announcing the game at 3.30 P. M., appeared on the board outside Wacky’s room, signed as usual, by M. S. K. ’10, but notwithstanding that, at 3.30 A. M., before even Grammy had risen, the teams lined up in their positions and the college surveyed them with critical eye, but found no flaw. The cerise jerseys with old-gold trimmings worn by the Old Guard made an agreeable and restful contrast with purple and green of the younger set. Like every team on the floor this year, they wore college football stockings. They squared off for the first round thusly: Younger Set Bauman Fritsch Olsen Bryan Bailey Forward Forward Center Guard Guard Old Guard Ettinger Wackernagel Ellis Bernheim Smith Prof. Reese arrived 6 minutes late and was counted absent by Referee Haas since he could furnish no good excuse. Director-of-the-Glee-Club-by-absent treatment Marks officiated as timekeeper. Suddenly, while the waiting millions held their breaths, the referee tossed the ball into the air and the burly centers leapt up after it. Scrappy managed to get it away from Runt, Fritsch followed it up, made a quick pass to Bauman, who, accurately measuring the cosine of the angle at B and determining the foci, shot for the basket. But he neglected to determine the locus of the basket and did not subtract the sine forbidding smoking from the log out of which the backboard was made and his shot went wide. Berny got it on the first bound and cleverly dribbled 19 + the ball down to his basket where he passed to Bailey. On receiving the ball, Bailey was at first at a loss what to do with it, but finally decided that it would make a fine specimen. To this end he tried to make a touchdown to the Biological Laboratory but Scrappy Olsen, the Wisconsin welterweight, through him for a loss of two teeth. On the resulting double foul Bauman, profiting by his former failure dropped the ball into the basket in a beautiful hyperbole, whose generatrix was a variable approaching rn as a limit. Ettinger failed at his try because Bailej ' disconcerted him by waving a rattlesnake at him. At this point Captain Billy Bryan of the Younger Set called time and gathered his men together. He gave them fatherly advice along certain lines, and especially admonished Fritsch and Olsen not to let their passion overcome their better natures. “Young fellers ’’ said he, “when you have been in the game as long as I have, you will know that it aint politic to git mad. ’ ’ “Great jumpin’ Freddie Barbarossa! ’ ’ burst out Scrappy, “de muts around dis joint generalize to beat the cards.’’ “Fess up, now, Cap, don ' t they? Adam Smith would ’a’ been sore an’ I’m sore. I aint goin’ to stand for it. You’ve jest got to do your collateral reading.’’ And he glared savagely across at Fllis who blushed and began to whistle in an effort to hide his embarassment. “We should have trained more,’’ complained Fritsch, “I’m not going to kill myself because you fellows have been smoking, chewing and even drinking before the game.’’ The referee’s whistle called the men back to the massacre and the game continued. Bauman scored first for the Younger Set by making a spectacular goal from mid-floor. The underclassmen applauded him to the echo but the upper classmen didn’t have to because math is elective after the Sophomore year. Eagle Eye Georgie now brought his team to the fore by caging three field goals in quick succession. When asked how he had acquired his remarkable accuracy, he said, “Oh, Naturlieh, Naturlich, there is no profit in a college education if you don’t learn something. There is no use sending your son to college if you don ’t want him to be educated. Nicht w T ahr?’’ “Nicht wahr,’’ agreed Ellis amiably, with his keen insight into German idiom, and the game swept on. It became rougher and rougher. Ettinger was weak on fouls and Wacky who was strong for them especially around Dankfest took his place at the 15 foot mark. He succeeded in throwing 2 goals, one when Referee Haas detected Fritsch slugging and the other when Olsen smashed Smith into the wall, out of pure excess of animal spirits. On the other hand, Bauman had been playing rings around Smith and had scored two more field goals, but had been unable to score any fouls, because of the clean game put up by the Old Guard. At half-time the score was 8 to 7 in the Old Guard’s favor and the supporters of the Younger Set looked dubious. This did not daunt the Youths, however, and they started off with a rush in the second half. Billy Bryan had ordered them to play a clean game. “In our Cleaning Committee meetings,’’ said he, “ofttimes we dis- cuss this matter and have come to the conclusion that it pays in de Long run.’’ 195 “Temper in the end,’’ philosophized Bauman, “biteth like an Adder and lieth in wait like the scales in the Physical Director’s studio.’’ But Olsen looked sceptical and Bill Bailey who was quietly taking everything in like he is said to at the dinner table, shook his head dubiously and asked Bauman to pass him “the 3.1416.’’ Bauman did so and then helped himself, for kind friends in the student body had provided refreshments for the weary com- batants. But Bailey ate so much pie that when the whistle blew he was tightly locked in the arms of Morpheus. Robert Chisholm Horn trotted out in his stead. In the second half the game became very fast, almost as fast as a church funeral, in fact, and the students were all worked up. Brilliant plays on both sides augmented the score till it stood 23-23, but a careful observer would have noted the flushed face of Scrappy Olsen and the labored breathing of Louisiana and would have had dark forebodings. Just about the time Smith made his tragic error. In a moment of intellectual insonciance he had the misfortune to trip Olsen. Scrappy got up, purple around the gills. He wanted revenge and lots of it, but horror of horrors, he thought Ellis had committed the fell deed. He delivered a weighty wallop to the latter’s jaw and Runt’s 114 lbs. crashed to the floor of the amphitheatre. But you can’t fool Fritsch! He was wise! With a mighty war cry, “Remember the Jourmalisten,” he dashed after Smith and began to mix it up with the Amherst Atom. The latter tried to appease him by directing his attention to the impenetrability of the rationalistic absolute with occasional references, to the dogmas of New-Platonism and Kant’s theorem. But Fritsch kept on knocking the Yankee Prince. The others had paced off and were fighting savagely. Bryan and Bernheim revived their ancient feud about the rolling of the tennis-courts, Bauman’s mathematical tendencies clashed with Wacky’s linguistic persua- sions, while the mighty forces of Greece and Rome locked themselves in a death struggle. The referee fought pro- miscuously, mixing in now and then with a well-placed blow or kick. But a cordon of police, who had been stat- ioned nearby for such an emergency at last fought their way through the empty corridor and the student body who tried to restrain them and succeeded in separating the combatants. They were placed under arrest. “Our sub-cutaneous natures broke forth and overcame our rational entities remonstrated the referee, “Ergo we were not responsible for our actions.’’ “it’s a crime against the law of Nature.” said Smith tragically. By the Pragmatic Sanction of Bourges,’’ exclaimed Olsen, “are these villians to triumph over their feudal lords?’’ “We have hanged our harps on the willows,’’ murmered Fritsch sadly. But Wacky expressed the feeling of all when he said with Jeffersonian simplicity “We’re pinched.’’ So they were led away to padded cells, while the student body departed in their usual silent and thoughtful manner, to Squires, Kistlers or home, in order to discuss the matter more fully after breakfast. 196 Do You Know That the Class of 1885 was the first to wear caps and gowns at the Commencement Exercises and that “The Muhlenberg’ ’ predicted that it would also be the last? That both the Literary Societies at one time imposed a fine for wearing boots during their sessions? That at one time Muhlenberg had a regulation College cap worn by all students? That Muhlenberg could at one time boast of a College Band? That the first Ciarla was published by the Class of 1893? That the first Inter-Society Oratorical Contest was held February 16, 1907. and that before this time the winner of the Junior Oratorical Contest became Muhlenberg’s representative in the Inter-Collegiate Oratorical Contest? That the bed-bugs in the old building was the subject of many an ode in the earlier Ciarlas? That since the College was founded, the Allentown Police force has caught and fined every man who attempted to put up posters? That before the Freshmen Plays, the Freshmen held Titus Livy Cremations on the Tuesday of Commencement week? That in 1901-02 and 1902-03, Basket Ball was the chief college sport and that Lehigh, University of Pennsyl- vania, Gettysburg, Bucknell, Medico-Chi, Drexel Institute, Franklin and Marshall, Lafayette and Swarthmore were among the teams played? That in 1904 the Class of 1900 supported a Track Team and there was a College Relay Team for the first time? That the Class of 1883 founded the Muhlenberg Monthly in June, 1883, and that it was placed in charge of the Literary Society in December, 1883?

On Friday morning October 8, 1909, a pic- turesque example of pastoral life among the rural denizens of Lehigh County was seen near the old school-house out the pike. It was shearing time. Six fine spring lambs were caught by the burly shepherds and led to the shearers where they were shorn of their fineyoung wool so highly prized for cozy- corner cushio s. Then came the branding ceremony and the peasant dances to the tune of the pipe. The piper was paid later. DIVORCE SCANDAL. On December 12, 1909 a sad case of mis- placed affections was laid bare when Drehs of 108 East Berks removed her belongings from the home of her husband, Mr. Solomon Levi David. The rupture came as a surprise to their social set as they had always appear- ed happy and no cause for the quarrel was known. Mr. David was a prominent pretzel dealer, and had no apparent financial trou- ble, which are the cause of so many broken hearts. The broken-heaited one will reside Rhoads Heights. Friends of the family were kind enough to have Mr David’sliome taste- fully decorated for his return. He takes this opportunity of thanking them. LOSES BOTH HIS HANDS Henry Stump a prominent truck-farmer of Middle Valley was forced to hire two new laborers. The two that worked for him last year became dissatisfied and quit.

Mr. Shelly’s machine is a Singer with a patent self-threading bob- bin. ANOTHER FISH-STORY Mr. A. Bluebird Schmoyer the celebrated lady-killer celebrated his fifteenth birthday last month by going on a fishing trip. He caught a number of weakfish. All the other kind got away. PERSONALS Mr. Charles Bacchus Grant, of South Reamstown, is reported to be suffering from a violent attack of sotnnosis, or sleeping sick- ness. This disease attacks Mr. Grant at all hours of the day, but is strangely absent at night. It is probably due to overwork as THE KAMPUS KNOCKER AND NEWS Mr. Grant’s study is illuminated to an early hour every morning. Mr. Grant is a man of great concentrative powers as is evinced by the fact that people who would interrupt him at such times, cannot rouse him by re- peated knocking. The disease, though in- curable, is not fatal. A Photographic Study M. S. K., ’10 Mr. B. Ush Wacker, secretary of the Mulil- lenberg Society for Psychic Research is a deep student of the more hidden phases of Psychology. Besides his numerous experi- ments on other persons and animals, in ad- dition to his exacting work as manager of the Freshman Baseball Team, has also per- formed several experiments on his own ego and has finally announced that he is possess- of a double personality and that he existed in some former state. Eminent psycho- physicist s after a careful examination have announced that this former state was New York. Mr. Daniel Deconda Savacool, of Trexler- town, is fast rising to fame. He already sits very high in his profession, which is that of Dramatic Critic. He has criticised all the best plays that have visited Allentown this year and in his criticisms has risen above the level of ordinary critics. He is an Alum- nus of Sellersville Hocli Schule and eats at Kistler’s. Although the Kainpus Knocker and News expects to be sued for libel it has decided to publish the following tidbit. It is alleged to have been committed by our esteemed professor of mathematics. Dr. B. That’s about half right, Mr. Scae- vola. You’ll have to do it Reiter. Students in Latin this year had good marks students in German had better marks, but 6tudents in Music had Dr. Marks. The recent mid-year examinations were remarkable in many respects but especially for their thoroughness. One of the profess- 200 ors who complains about generality of the work of the fellows here, propounded the following very specific question to one of his classes. “Discuss the economic situation from Adam to the present day.’’ Among the novelties introduced by our new preceptors is an extension of the literal notation, which means that wherein former years one received a D as a mark of Distinc- tion, one now may receive an E, a mark of Extinction. Naturally this well-meant and long-needed reform created a slight feeling of jealousy among their older colleagues, one even going so far as to advance his notation to the letter O. Prof. (in Geology): Scheele is a hard- looking, impenetrable substance, usually found in the upper stata of Rhoads. SOCIAL CALAMITY Mr . Walter Chesterfield Brossman, apopu- ular society man of Womelsdorf, has an- nounced his intention of dropping out of the social whirl. Since up to the present time he has had but little trouble hanging on, this announcement will be a surprise to his many friends of both sexes. This decision will be mourned by his many friends and friendesses. He is a man of great brilliancy of intellect and broad understanding. He will devote his life to the study metallurgies. THE KAMPUS KNOCKER AND NEWS OTHER SOCIAL HAPPENINGS Mr. John Harket, a prominent figure in Allentown society, is also extremely popu- lar in Fullerton, Nazareth but especially in Bethlehem. It is hinted by those who know John well that it is something beyond the historic surroundings that lures him to Bethlehem on four nights of the week. Keep on good terms with John and you may re- ceive cards to the wedding. Mr. Conrad D. Q. Raker announces his permanent retirement from the field of Transcendental Quaterniaus of Hyperspace. Mr. Raker has long been noted for his pro- found knowledge of this subject and is the author of many helpful treatises. M. Jas. Blaine Shock, of Mt. Lion, after years of research announces to the world that women are fickle and that they all look alike to him. He says that in his experi- ments it has always been a source of wonder to him how they can appear so similar. Mr. Shock is noted for his memory for faces. JOTTINGS FROM THE WORD OF SPORT Mr. John Orpheus Hassler has signed a 20 year contract to coach the football team of Emaus High School. Last fall this chair became vacant through the death of its oc- cupant, due to old ' age. Mr. Hassler leapt in- to the breach and his accomplishments as coach have met their well-earned reward. | His team made an enviable record last year, in one of their games, almost scoring on the scrub. One of the fastest 6 round bouts of the season took place last week at the National A. C. when Spike Skean, the Chambersburg Cyclone went a draw with Dicer Snyder, the Frisco Blizzard. Both boys were down to 133 pounds and some clever work was seen. COACH BULL’S SAYINGS By gad, you’ll have to get into it. Come on there, muss things up. Tear ’em up, scrubs, or what ever you want to call yourselves. Hold your man like you would a woman. Get your head of the ground, you ostrich. Why in thunder don’t you watch that; nine men passed you. Go into it like you know what I mean. You dance around like a hen that wants to lay an egg. REAL ESTATE NOTES The new road from Emaus to Macungie will be run through shortly. On July 4tli a Marathon will take place on it. Shupp, Kresge Co. opened up a new tract yesterday. It arrived in the mail from the Salvation Army. 201 UNDER THE SCIENTIFIC SPOTLIGHT It was authentically stated at a meeting of the Cleaning Committee by Mr. William Jennings Bryan that the Power House and Laboratory would be united in one building next year, notwithstanding the contradictory statement of our esteemed contemporary, the “Pottsville Patriarch.” One by one the Mysteries of yesterday are being solved. We can now fly, radio-action is fast losing its superstitious wonder to us, we have weighed all but most remote stars etc. Is it expecting too much to hope that some day we shall learn what is in the base- ment of the Dormitories? FACULTY NOTES Dr. Wackernagel established a precedent during the Mid-year Exams by giving “Beer” a C in French. Don’t you often think of that beautiful poem “ If I Could be by Her” when you see Dr. Haas and Dr. Ettinger sit together to read and discuss the Magazines. There is a shipment of tomato-can labels at the freight station for Dr. Bauman to be used by his classes for class-work. Dr. Marks has made his Course in Music very attractive this year by having a young lady illustrate his lectures by singing the masterpieces. Prof. Reese has about perfected an induc- tion coil to assist his students in mastering Physics and Chemistry in future years. It was discovered last week that the style of “Bobby” Horn’s new hat was patterned after that worn by Agamemnon on his ex- pidition to Troy. Prof. Fritsch announces that those frequent (alas) German expletives like Donnervetter, and many far, far worse should be translat- ed by some phrase as Oh Fruitcake, Buy Spearmint and the like. On Sunday, February 27th “Jack” Olsen attended a strike meeting at Bethlehem. When the speaker started, he pulled out his note book but when the speaker announced that ‘scab” spies in the audience had better be careful, Prof, “lost his nerve” and tried to look like a Union man. He succeeded for he arrived at Muhlenberg safe Monday morning; but he had no notes in his note- book. Prof. Ellis attends Chapel everv Wednes- day morning, to see that the Freshmen take notes on the Address. It is difficult to describe Prof. Smith’s posture in the class room but suffice it to say that it is as changeable as the weather and as comfortable as the chair will permit. Prof. Bailey has just about completed a handsome little volume entitled “Classifica- tion of Species in Facultate.” THE KAM PUS KNOCKER ANn NEWS POUTRY NOTES. In our weekly number of the “Chronicle and News ’ we observe the following clip- ping winch shows that Muhlenberg is again in the lead in an entirely new field. A PROFESSORS HENS. Muhlenberg Instructor has a Gold Mine in his Poultry. The following letter was received by the Chronicle News to-day: Allentown, Pa., March 3 ’JO My dear Mr. Editor: Upon reading an article in this evening’s edition of the Chronicle concerning Mr. Sny- der’s 14 fancy stock chickens laying ' 81 eggs during February, I am lead to send you a record made by 14 of my commonest barn- yard stock one year olds, in a cheap impro- vised store-box pen with a small wire pen outside. The fact that he has 14 and I the same number exactly, makes it possible to form a comparison. They laid for me dur- ing February 186 eggs, and since Xmas week 335. I attribute this record to the proper I attention given them every day, for they (have absolutely no pedigree, having been bought at a corner grocery. Respectfully yours, ROBERT R. P ' RITSCH. The Kampus Knocker and News would eg to be allowed to advise Mr. Fritsch that if he “has a Gold Mine in his poultry” he he should take it out, even if he has to kill the poultry. Criticism is always distastefnl to us but it may be allowable in this instance because Mr. hritsch has criticised many a letterwrit- ten by us in German, a language in which 202 he is more of an authority than we are. Here we should rightly criticise this letter which is in English, a language in which we are more of an authority, of course, than Mr Fritsch. In the first place, he abbreviates the date ' 10. An abbreviation such as this is never permissible in a polite letter except when referring to the Class of 1910, any abbrevia- tion of which is a blessing. The matheuiat- tics of this hen-party are somewhat abstruse. The most definite statement is “that he has 14 and I (has) the same number,” (figures should never be used in the body of a Tetter especially when that letter may come before the eyes of the young). J ust before this lie says “14 of my commonest.” Evidently he suffered a fowl bereavement while writing the letter and had only 14 left. “They laid for me.” Did they catch you? A grave omission. The German order in this sen- tence would look well in the Fliegende Blad- der but we sometimes don’t generally always admire it in the Chronicle and News especi- ally in the News. Finally, in order to dis- pel the last lingering rack of doubt from his reader’s mind, he lays emphasis on the fact that he “bought” the eggs whence his Gold Mine” hens were evolved. The day after this appeared in the public press, Dr. W. J. Bryan, who occupies the Sapoho Chair of Misapplied Cleanattics at our budding institution, came to us and in dignified anger begged to be allowed to say a few words. THE KAMPUS KNOCKER AND NEWS “I don’t seek notoriety like some people, ’ ’ he said “but if I do have to say it myself, I’m the best hen breeder around these dig- gings. “Why I’ll tell you what, this Spring I set twenty-six eggs, and, gentlemen, yes it’s a fact, when I counted the chicks there were exactly twenty-seven, no more and no less. Account for it? Well I don ' t account. An egg might have been laid in the nest by another chicken: but I tell you, gentlemen, it was blamed funny: yes, sir, blamed funny. Talking about eggs, say, can you beat this?’’ he asked as he handed us a beautiful egg. We tried it, but the egg was hard-boiled, and we were forced to admit that we couldn’t. Leaving us the egg, he left. Since writing and the chickens are related (both products of the pen ) we drifted nat- urally into the poultry spirit ourselve. We did a lot of figuring and finally came to the conclusion that there were richer “Gold Mines’’ in the raising of geese. We publish our figures for the benefit of the two fore- going poultry raisers: and in order to give them some of our fortune we figured on three stockholders. Here goes; Stockholders Three Shares of Stock, 3 @ $100.00 $300.00 300 geese (w $1.00 600.00 3 eggs per week per goose — 900 eggs per week 900x52=46,800 eggs per year 46,800x3=140,000 eggs in 3 years No eggs sold but incubated and hatched Allowing for bad eggs — 40,000 leaves 100,000 geese 21b. feathers per goose 200,000 lbs $1.50 per lb for feathers $300,000.00 100,000 pairs geese livers @ 60c 60,000.00 20 buttons from each goose bill 2.000,000 @ lc a button 20,000.00 $1.50 per goose dressed 150,000.00 Capital invested Estimated operating $ 300.00 expenses 190,000.00 190,300.00 Receipts: Feathers 300,000.00 Goose livers 60.000.00 Buttons 20,000.00 Dressed geese 150,000.00 530,000.00 Expenditures $190,300.00 Net Profit 339,700.00 Each stockholder $113,233.33 P. S — 27 quills for tooth picks can be had from each goose. This would make 2,700, 000 tooth picks at 33 1-3 per hundred net, $9,000.00 in addition to the above. But when all is said and done, we have come no nearer to that much-mooted and quarreled question, “Why does a hen roost her?” EXCHANGES Among the foremost frequent of our ex. changes, we are proud to number “The Muhlenberg.” This periodical, which of course reflects talents of the students of the institution it represents, numbers among its contributors, — Longfellow, Paul Wanner, ’10, Wordsworth, Robert Harrison, ’10, MatthewSinith, Jacob H. Hiestand, M. S. K. ’10 and others. The department which gives color and life to this periodical is the one headed “Per- sonals’’ supposed to consist of local jokes. The literary crimes appearing as Personals in “The Muhlenberg” are local alright but it requires the wildest imaginative powers to be able to call them jokes. We will give typical instances gleaned from the pages of the paper and discus-s them in turn. A line will be drawn between each one so one can tell where one stops and the other begins. This ingenious device is borrowed from “The Muhlenberg” and is the best thing we have seen in their personal department. 1. Dr. Haas (after the remark, “Hear Grant laugh”) — That’s the laugh of a doubt- Thomas. 2’ Dr. H. (in Psychology) Can a horse be educated? Class — Various answers. Dr. H. — What was that Mr. Grant? Grant ’ll — My horse used to spell for me in my Frsehman year. 203 THE KAMPUS KNOCKER AND NEWS 3. Prof. Olsen — What advantage did the students have in the students Generale? Brandt, ’ll — Student’s books, students’ environment, student’s discount. 4. header (repeating the following phrase in Telegu at the Missionary Society Meeting) The man who came is here. Do you see? Knerr, T3 — Yes, sir. 5. Scheele, ’13 — I must write three letters to-day. Wunder, ’ll — Letter writing is a diver- sion. Scheele, ’13 — Depends on the destina- tion of the letters. 6, Prof. F. (in Die Journalisten) — Wunder take part of Bolz. Wunder, ’ll — Am not prepared. Prof. F.— Am sorry to say that you don’t come up to your last year’s standard. Cr iticism of the above Gems: 1. The Biblical reference in this example prevents too boisterous laughter which might be occasioned by the witty remark. 2. The next selection is an example of the wicked things we used to do in our Fresh- man year. It makes one laugh at the pure reckless daring with which we used horses. For the benefit of the Yokahoma Evening Sun, one of our exchanges, we would say that the “Class’’ (corresponding to the Chorus in the Greek Drama) does not say “Various answers’’ bnt it says different things out of which the Doctor chose the cream. 3. To understand this, one must know whether a student’s Generale was a building or something good to eat. We, like the average reader, do not know what itis, there- fore cannot explain. Mr. Brandt’s reply is probably a case of climatic graduation. 4. Very deep. The quick, vivacious re- tort of Mr. Knerr is contrasted with the wordy and didatic remark of the “Leader.” Probably introduced by the Personal Editor to prove he was at the Missionary meeting. 5. Is a humorous dialogue on letter writ- ing. Catchy, quick and clean-cut, it compels admiration. 6. La creme de la creme. Anyone dis- covering anything remotely resembling any- thing funny in this bit of dialogue will re- ceive a silver loving cup from the Kampus Knocker and News. Sherlock Holmes, the Society for Psychic Research and Werners- ville Combined Luther Leagues have given up the task, and we fear it will remain an unfathomable mystery just like the problem as to why Wunder wrote the Personals for “The Muhlenberg” during the year. GLEE CLUB NOTES The following letter was received by the Manager of the Glee Club and is given ver- 204 batim except for t he signature. Emaus, Pa., April 25th, 1910.

SPARKS FROM HALLEY’S COMET. P. Barringer will raise a mustache. Watch It Grow. W. Roomy (not Rummy) Groff complains because somebody has been continually tak- ing the “Missionary Review’’ from the read- ing-room sometimes keeping it out a day at a time. An unverified report was received at this office late last night that somebody had seen Stump, the dormitory cut-up, running. If this is true many bets will be won and anew fact added to Scientific Research. As a point of interest to friends, Mr. Butch Cressman is relating the story about a game of baseball long, long ago in which he played and was not seriously injured. Owing to the weakness of the proctorial administration the dormitories have been annoyed all year by the unearthly noises made by Junto Henry, who makes a racket when lie’s asleep. Better luck next year. Tranquil pleasure. Watching Esser run the mile. Clarke Heller bobs up to remark that Wapwallopen is still doing business at the old stand. J. Hen Flynninger has been appointed assistant editor of Tip Top Weekly. Go, young man, like Kohler, carry the Eastern culture West. Bob Kleckner says Adams Spearmint aint what it used to be. Did you hear that noise? That’s Raker on another sarsaparilla souse. Troxell says Piper Heidsick cures that tired feeling. Landis, Hassler, Kuder, Brossmati, Grant, Gelsinger, Baer, and a few of the “profs’’ have effected a new organization known as the “Steam Sweaters,” and have unanimously adopted the motto, “close all windows and turn on the steam heat full blast.’’ The Ozone Club comprises those who see the folly and misapprehension which under- lie the principles of the “Steam Sweaters” Club. The “Fret and Worry Club” is composed of those who fear the dire results of flunk- ing final examinations. The problem of “The White Man’s Bur- den,” is most realistic to the Seniors. Ask Uricli or Yerger for details. It is a coincident worthy of note that the “1911 Ciarla’’ is being edited in the year of the phenoininal appearance of Halley’s Comet, and thereby hangs a tale. The meaning of the words “Keep off the grass,” has changed. It now means, “don’t cross the lawn on the eighth day of the week.’’ 205 THE KAMPUS KNOCKER AND NEWS Everybody knows that our past baseball J season was a howling ' success. Everybody howled! On the same day that Urich was engaged, that Janke mistook the Emaus furnace for Halley’s Comet, that “Johnnie” Haas wore his red tie, that Skean was ducked, that Rentschler. became lost in love, that the Freshman “Pacific” Society was organized, that the Sophomores departed, that Rich- ards almost woke up, that M. S. K. ’10 was seen, that Scheelil became a “lady’s man,” that Ammarell dreamed of married life in an attic with an oil stove, that Baer spent the night in, that balls passed thru several dozen windows, that “Kid” Miller told a decent joke, — on that day nothing else of great importance happened. When R. Rentschler calls on the girls, he frequently has the misfortune of having his umbrella stolen from the porch. Ask him.

Sliupp and Hassler are the new old nuts. Prof. Smith told the fellows that Allen- town women are pretty. Of course, we knew that. While hunting in the College Grove re- cently, aB(au)owman was greatly Shocked by a Baer, reKlineing amongst the Bushes near a large Stump.

Livingston Drehs Patsy the Brule ]awn Meek 191 I s Poster Night Sophomore Poster Night comes but once in every college man’s life; so we, being newly evolved into Sopho- mority, (if I may use that term) in September nineteen -eight, determined to do things brown when the time came! Hartzell, Romig, and Eberts were chosen a committee to arrange a poster. With the aid of HartzelLs diction- ary of synonyms and antonyms which prove so valuable to him when he writes his “impromptu” speeches, a suitable poster was gotten up. Supplies of brushes and of glue were procured and all was put in readiness for the fateful night. Kid Miller’s home at Twelfth and Turner Streets was the center of operations. From this place the fellows started out in three different groups to paint the town. Little did they reck that the subtle eye of the alert Allentown Police Department had already perceived their plans. Little did they dream that ere dawn they would be in the strong clutches of the law. Yet such proved to be the case. Group one went down Turner to A. C. W., covered the Hamilton Street Bridge, and did good justice to the territory allotted them until they came to Twelfth and Walnut Streets. They were working peacebly and had almost finished. But just then a terrible thing happened. Like a thunderbolt in a clear sky a cab came dashing down the street. Unsuspecting of approaching misfortune the students continued posting. But not long. The stillness of the night was broken by a revolver shot aimed at them. Hamm had a close shave there. The bullet just grazed his leg. We, of course, didn’t try to escape and were soon speeding toward the Police Station. Section two was headed by Hartzell and consisted of Weber, Kid Miller, Bauman, Stuart, Boyer, and Behrens. They also put the green porous plaster on the streets of our bailiwick until they met the Fresh. A melee ensued. But the police were on the job and by means of their revolvers held the gang of “blood-thirsty” strides at bay and then took them down to the city hall. Group three, consisting of the rest of the class, was fortunate in that but one of their men was caught. Eberts, the leader, was pounced upon in the darkness by six policemen. They summoned Dummy, the cabman, who drove them as far as the Greenwood Cemetery in search of other offenders and from there they took Eberts to the “lock-up. At the latter place the “third degree” was tried on Eberts but without success. So they decided to release him. Six Sophomores arrested! Remanded for Police Court! These were the cold facts which stared the boys in the face. Did this deter them from their original purpose, namely the laying down of the law to the Fresh? No, emphatically no. It only served to embolden their spirits. With a good old “Rip-rah reven” cheer as a starter the whole bunch sailed out Chew Street at a great rate until they reached the Campus. In less than two minutes time 207 they gained admission into the Main Building and there, before the very eyes of the awe-stricken Fresh, they hung the banner from the tower which announced to all who chanced to gaze upon its green hues, the status of the Fresh- men in society. The banner was embellished with these words, “1912 Asses.” Not content with the banner raising, the Sophs determined to stampede the Freshmen who had retreated to the Dorms. Witli post haste they made to the doors of the Dorms and there encountered the Fresh prepared for battle with sticks, baseball bats, and chairs. With battering-ram force the undaunted Sophs hurled themselves against their enemies and in less than three minutes had driven them into a room at the back of the hall. There they were compelled to go through the most humiliating of “stunts.” Speeches were delivered by the tear-soaked president, the secretary, and the vice-president of the class. After duly laying down the law to them, the Sophs decided to re- tire. They had the satisfaction of having won the great hall rush and were now prepared for their duel with the law of the morrow. Next morning at ten o’clock the six Sophs and seventeen Freshmen (including the “Freshmen” Eberts and Behrens) appeared before the Alderman. In a few minutes they left with exactly $64.50 less in their pockets. “We have often wondered " what use was made of this fine. “ Do you know?” 208 Day by Day SEPTEMBER OCTOBER 2.

VIDE 181 2.4 How We Did It ; Who Did It. This hook would have been impossible without the aid of our advertisers and we hereby make grateful acknow- ledgement of their patronage. The Juniors extend hearty thanks to the Senior, Sophomore and Freshmen Classes for help in many ways, es- pecially commending the Freshmen. Too much praise cannot be given the Business Managers, Grant and Hartzeli, for their faithful work. 1 heir record has not even been approached by former classes and we predict that it will stand for some time. It is no easy task to select the hardest worker from the staff of Artists. Wolper and Stuart had an advantage over the other Artists in having a number of drawings ready by the opening of the term; but all five Artists, Kline, Beiber, Wolper, Stuart, and Romig worked conscientiously during the year. Their drawings throughout the book speak for themselves. It is an easy task to select the hardest workers on the Editorial Staff. Wunder and Brandt stand out far above the others and share equally the honor of first place. These men worked on half-day notices, and seemed to vie with each other in handing in material. Although having other duties on the Ciarla Board, Romig and Grant were willing and prompt workers. Rentschler could always be relied upon to do his share of the work. Eberts and Butz were careful workers, at times spending from three to four months on a single article. Ammarell and Bauman were not members of the Ciarla Board but took an active interest in Ciarla matters. Hamm also wrote. This book is not what it might be and in many ways not what we wished it to be; but we trust, dear reader, that you will overlook its faults and praise its virtues, If it has pleased you and drawn you closer to Muhlenberg, we are satisfied.
