To the Memory of Dr. Karl G. Maeser 

this Book is Respectfully 


To Karl G. Maeser 

March 1, 1901 

Come, lay his books and papers by. 

He shall not need them more; 
The ink upon his pen shall dry, — 

So softly close the door. 
His tired head with locks of white. 

And like the winter's sun. 
Hath Iain to peaceful rest to-night, — 

The teacher's work is done. 

His work is done; no care to-night 

His tranquil rest shall break; 
Sweet dreams, and with the morning light 

On other shores he'll wake. 
His noble thoughts, his wise appeal. 

His work that battles won; — 
But God doth know the loss we feel, — 

The teacher's work is done. 

We feel it while we miss the hand 
That made us brave to bear; 
Perchance in that near-touching land 

His work did wait him there. 
Perchance when death its change has 
And this brief race is run. 
His voice again shall teach who thought 
The teacher's work was done! 

— Annie Pike Greenwood 

College Song 

All hail the College that we love! 

At the throne, the throne of wisdom's sway. 

Oh, let OS lift our songs above 

The thronging multitude to-day. 

No pride of riches here may s«e: • 

The head, the heart, the hand. 

United must be true — 

Be true to thee, our White and Blue, 

When they join our happy band. 

There is no emblem half so sweet 
As our colors, colors pure and true; 
There is no banner that we greet. 
Like' thee, our dear old White and Blue. 
No youth its beauty ere denies; 
Such thought no maid alllows. 
For blue is in her eyes — 
For blue is in her bonnie eyes, 
And of white her thoughtful brow. 


Then cheer anew for the B. Y. U.! 
We've come to work, to live, to do; 
We'll raise the standard — bear it through; 
Our hearts are true to the B.^Y. U. 




Homes of the School 

N historical sketch of the Brigham Young University takes the reader back to a 
time when Provo was a country village. The city is not yet completely urban- 
ized? for the meek-eyed cow still pays the land-tax, even on our fine cement 
side-walks. But in 1875, and even for a decade thereafter, the threshing ma- 
chine hummed on more than one spot where now clicks the typewriter, and the 
old-fashioned horse power cumbered Main street at many a front gate, for 
brief intervals. 

the preeminence which Provo is destined to at- 
a swift growth of the city, built a structure 

Nevertheless, men foresaw even then 
tain. One man in particular, believing 
which must have surprised and delighted 
the sturdy pioneers, and encouraged them 
to shed their log cabins and put on adobe. 
The Lewis block, for so it was called, occu- 
pied the ground now partly covered by the 
Farmers' and Merchants' bank. It abut- 
ted on the sidewalk, and consisted of two 
long store-rooms below, with office rooms 
at the back, and a public hall above. Di- 
rectly over the two offices was a stage 
which was elevated four feet above the 
main upper floor. Three feet more had 
been taken from the height of the ceiling 
in the offices below; and the space thus cre- 
ated midway between the ground and the 
roof, made room for actors to drown or 
hoist ore, or be hurled down rocky preci- 
pices, to soft bed-springs below. This 
cellar in mid-air is of historic significance, 


The Lewis Block

for it was here on the night of January 24, 
1884, that the first home of our beloved 
institution caught fire and burned to the 

But I anticipate my story. The owners 
had no sooner completed this excellent 
commercial block, than they discovered it 
to be the proverbial white elephant on their 
hands. It was by reason of this fact that 
Brigham Young found occasion to pur- 
chase the property. 

And so it happened that by a deed of 
trust, executed October 16, 1875, he found- 
ed the Brigham Young Academy. A pie- 
liminary session had already been held the 
previous year, with Messrs. Warren N. and 
Wilson H. Dusenberry, two young college- 
bred men recently from the East, as teach- 
ers; they were succeeded in the spring by 
Dr. Karl G. Maeser. But the academic year is reckoned from August 25, 1875, when the 
school was formally opened, the dedicatory prayer having been offered by President Daniel 
H. Wells. 

The enrollment increased so that during the fourth year the average attendance was 
about 250; but in the years following it grew to 350; and during one year to 400. This in- 
crease lead A. O. Smoot, President of the board, to build two additions, one on the north 
and one on the east, thus furnishing four new class rooms. The school had grown very rapidly, 
and was rejoicing in its new found opportunities, when the great fire came. 

That was a momentous episode, not only for the four hundred students in attendance, but 
for the entire city. About midnight of January 24, 1884, the flames burst through the 
roof, startling the neighborhood. The lurid glare lit up the snow for blocks around. The 
meeting house bell clamored out the terrifying news, and soon bucket brigades were formed; 
but the flames had gained too much headway, and fed by the keen frosty air, they made a 
most magnificent pyrotechnic display. Nor was there ever a more fascinated audience than 
that made up of the saddened faces upturned to this funeral pyre of their Alma Mater. 


The Z. C. M. I. Building 

All the city had been aroused, and next morning the students were moving everywhere 
about the smoking embers. There seemed to be no note of hope left in the subdued conversa- 
tion of the little groups here and there. The only question seemed to be how soon they 
could get ready to start for home. 

Presently Brother Maeser, whose white hair and dignified bearing had already made 
him venerable, mounted a chair, and called the crowd to order. There was hope shining out in 
his fine, strong face and courage in the ring of his voice. Bidding the students not to lose 
heart, he invited them all to a meeting in the Stake tabernacle. Here the lesson of the 
fire was impressed upon us? and we were told, not only that the school would go on, but that 
steps had already been taken to erect new and suitable quarters. 

Events moved rapidly that day? President Smoot had just completed the bank 
building on the corner of Academy avenue and Center street? and although the First National 
Bank corporation, the Smoot Drug Company, and various office renters, were ready and 
eager to move in, the grand old man moved them all off, to give a free home to the 
homeless school. By the following morning black-boards had been made and placed in 
the walls, and desks and benches filled all the rooms. That the institution should, in 
the face of so overwhelming a calamity, 
lose only one day of regular work, was al- 
ways thereafter a source of tender pride 
to its first great teacher. 

But the bank building proved inade- 
quate for more than the normal, academic, 
and commercial departments. It became 
a question, therefore, whether or not to 
discontinue the grades. At this point an- 
other public-spirited gentleman came to 
the rescue. Mr. L. L. Jones had just com- 
pleted a new store on the site now occupied 
by the Piovo Meat & Packing Co., and here 
the rest of the school found shelter? the 
intermediate departments below, the prim- 
ary and preparatory above. 

As is well known Dr. Maeser had not 
only to develop the school itself? he had The mgh school Buiming

The College Building 

also to create the faculty — both, be it said, 
o«t of very raw material. No doubt the 
venerable educator had been much and 
often pained by the rawness of his young 
assistants. To improve them in general 
scholarship, he arranged that each should 
teach as great a variety of branches as pos- 
sible — thus compelling self-improvement. 
Then, also, he contrived to give them an 
hour of his time after school on some high 
school study. It was thus that they got 
for instance, an elementary knowledge of 
the modern languages. 

By the time school was ready to open 
in the fall of 1884, the board had leased 
about three-fourths of the floor space of the 
Z. C. M. I. warehouse, near the depot, and 
partitioned off into rooms suitable to the wants of the school. This building like the Lewis 
Block, had proved to be a premature business venture; and so again the school found at hand 
a home fitted to its needs, with but little outlay of means. These quarters proved really 
more commodious than those in the first building had been; which fact accounts for the 
school remaining housed there for the next seven years and a half. 

To thousands of students now beset by the hard realities of life, the old warehouse will 
ever be associated with the dearest memories of youth; proving thereby that the power 
of a school in shaping character does not depend upon elaborate buildings, nor ornate fur- 
nishings, but rather upon the spiritual and intellectual atmosphere within its walls. To put it 
in the language of President Garfield in a tribute to the power of his own beloved teacher: 
"Dr. Hopkins and a fallen log in the woods would, at any time or place, constitute a great 

As the years wore on. Dr. Maeser's system of Education was justified by such splendid 
results, that seminaries and stake academies were established everywhere throughout 
Zion, and he was himself chosen as General Superintendant of Church Schools; a position 
he held from the year 1890 until his death. Prof. Benj. Cluff succeeded him as president 
of the institution, the change occurring on the removal of the school to the new building, 


Janwary 4, 1892. Under his able generalship, the school took tremendous strides forward. 
Without losing the spirit so characteristic of Dr. Maeser's management, it became at once a 
modern school, and in touch with the best colleges east and west. 

The new building now known as the High School building, dates its beginning from 
the year of the fire. Such was the feeling of sympathy for the institution, that $2000 
were taken in as subscriptions within a few days after the greatest loss — enough to buy the 
ground and lay the foundations. Here the work halted for six years. To President Cluff 
belongs the honor of renewing the agitation for its completion, and to President A. O. 
Smoot for furnishing the means. Not one man in ten thousand would have mortgaged his 
home and personal property, as he did, to borrow money for such a purpose; and even though 
the Church, a year or two afterwards, assumed the indebtedness, this fine building, the 
first real home of the institution, — since it was the first shaped to its needs, — stands today 
a monument to the man who did more than the Founder himself, in the matter of means 
and self-sacrificing devotion, to make the Brigham Young University possible. 

The future of the institution was, at this time, very modestly estimated. For instance, 
in one of his last addresses before the school, President Smoot made the remark 
that he hoped to see the day when one 
hundred normal students would be enroll- 
ed. Before the century closed that number 
had quadrupled, and there was a like in- 
crease in other departments. 

Indeed, the difficulties connected with 
raising funds to pay for the High School 
building had hardly been met, when the 
school clamored for more room. However, 
the immediate occasion of starting the 
movement for a new building was the fact 
that on October 16, 1896, the Board for- 
mally founded a college department, offer- 
ing the bachelor's degree. 

Agitation for another building immedi- 
ately began; and at a banquet the following 
spring President Cluff strongly urged upon 
the Board the need of more room. But so 


The Training Building and Gymnasium 



recent and acute were the memories of fi- 
nancial difficulties, that it is doubtful 
whether th- college building would have 
materialized for a long while, had not a son 
of the first President of the Board stepped 
into the financial breach, with the same in- 
trepidity that his father was wont to 

Reed Smoot asked for three months time 
in which to raise the necessary funds and 
offered to be personally responsible for the 
outcome. He proved to be as good as his 
word. In the main corridor of the building 
is a marble slab con taining the names of 
the men and women associated with him in 
tliis meritorious enterprise. It should be 
added, that the heating plant and furniture 
were contributed by the Alumni associa- 

The building was dedicated for service 
during commencement week of the school 
year 1897-98. 

Credit is due to the Student-body for beginning the agitation which resulted in the next 
building. Toward the close of the Century the need most distinctly felt was an athletic field 
and a gymnasium; and the students took hold of the situation with characteristic energy. Not 
only did they contribute liberally from their own pockets; they organized themselves into com- 
mittees for soliciting aid throughout the State. Temple hill was the first fruits of their achieve- 
ment ; but they had also collected a considerable sum toward a gymnasium building. 

Then came the movement by which the Church Normal Training school was made part of 
the institution, and with it the need of suitable quarters. The result was the erection of the 
Training School building and gymnasium combined; most of the funds being contributed by 
Mr. Jesse Knight and Hon. David Evans. The building was dedicated on February 7, 1902. 

The foundation fund for the Preparatory building was a gift of $1000 by Miss Emma Lucy 
Gates, and represented the proceeds of a concert given by her toward the endowment of the Do- 


The Preparatory Building 

mestic Science department; The rest of the $13000 needed was donated by the Alpine, Nebo, 
Utah, Wasatch, and Juab Stakes, in consideration of the fact that a missionary and a Prepara- 
tory or Sub-high school department should also have quarters here. The building was dedi- 
cated October 26, 1904. 

Two other building acquired during the same year, while of little note from an architectural 
point of view, deserve mention for their usefulness. These are the blacksmith shop, erected at 
a cost of $2500 and the Cluff store, which was purchased and remodelled to serve as temporary 
quarters for the Arts and Trades department. 

The splendid efforts of the Alumni Associati n toward the completion of the Maeser Mem- 
orial building, are discussed at length elsewhere. One remark by way of concluson may not 
be inappropriate. 

The successive steps in the home-making of the Brigham Young University constitute a 
most typical example of the virile power of faith, when joined by short links with works. In no 
instance was the end of any new building foreseen from the beginning; but always the one step 
visible toward that end was taken as soon as it came into view; and this step led to the next 
until the outcome was assured; illustrating, the providence of God as set forth in that pas- 
sage by Paul; viz., "The just shall live by faith." 

The Maeser Memorial 

Church Teachers College and the Professional 
Training of Teachers 

HE idea of training teachers professionally for ttieir work is a modern 
one. It originated in Germany about tfie time of the Reformation. 
Luther and other educators began advocating the need of professional 
training, in addition to the ordinary scholastic learning, for the im- 
portant work of teaching. The idea soon found expression in the 
establishment of Normal schools where prospective teachers were 
taught not only what they were to teach but also how to teach it. 

In America this idea is not much over a century old. It began 
to be advocated here shortly after the American Revolution, and in 
the early part of last century it found concrete expression in the es- 
tablishment of private normal schools. When private adventure 
had proved the value of these institutions they began to be estab- 
lished by pubhc school systems of State and city. The idea of pro- 
fessional training given in Normal schools has proved its value; now 
practically all states and large cities thus train the teachers of the 
elementary schools. 

With the rapid multiplication of high schools in the United States 
in the latter part of the last century a new movement in the profes- 
sional training of teachers began. A great need of properly trained secondary or high school 
teachers was felt. To meet this need, college departments of education were established. The 
first of these was opened in the University of Michigan in 1879. Others followed in rapid 
succession. At the present time there are few if any colleges of prominence that have not 
added this new department. 

These college departments are of two kinds. Some give the professional studies of educa- 
tion and psychology in theory only, while others have connected with them elementary and 
secondary schools in which prospective teachers may receive actual practice in teaching under 


expert supervision. As in the case of the Normal school these college departments of educa- 
tion have proved their value and they have come to stay. They are supplying professionally 
trained men and women for the higher and more remunerative educational positions through- 
out the land. < t-. < tt- tt t. c 

In conformity with this national tendency the Brigham Young University has a protes- 
sional department. It has maintained, practically from its beginning, a normal school that has 
sent out hundreds of teachers professionally trained and imbued with the proper spirit of edu- 
cation. . , 

Recently there has been a very rapid growth of high schools in our Western communities. 
For teaching in these, and for the superintendencies and supervisorships in our growing city 
systems, the graduates of normal schools have not had adequate preparation. Hence the 
scarcity of teachers for these better positions is greatest. To meet this need and to prepare 
bright young men and women for these best positions in our schools the Teachers' College has 
been established as a department of the Brigham Young University. The college offers four 
years of work in the usual arts and sciences to give the necessarily higher scholarship required 
for teaching in high schools. It offers courses also in psychology and education to give pros- 
pective teachers a professional attitude to their future work. It has connected with it an ele- 
mentary school and a high school in which the educative practices may be observed and edu- 
cational problems solved scientifically. Practical training in teaching in both elementary and 
high school classes will be given to college students in these schools under experienced teachers. 

The Teachers' College has a bright future. History of educational progress demonstrates 
the fact that it has an assured field of permanent usefulness. It will draw its students from and 
help to supply teachers for the high schools just now so numerously springing up around us. 
As a department of the University it will share the support of a large and patriotic Alumni 
Association and it will partake of the good spirit so characteristic of the parent institution. 
It will soon move to its permanent location on the beautiful Temple Hill. There it will occupy 
as the first home of its future the Maeser Memorial Building, now nearing completion. Other 
buildings on the spacious campus are soon to follow. 

Best of all it has the support of the Church, rapidly growing and enthusiastic for a proper 
education. It is the official school of the Church for the preparation of teachers for the higher 


Under these and other favoring circumstances the Teachers' College looks forward to a 
bright future. With such support it hopes to meet the anticipations of its founders and justify 
its establishment.

History and Social Science. Did not come 
here in 1888 but has been here, nevertheless, 
for a long time. His path has not been an 
easy one; has not been one strewn with Roses. 
He has evolved from a very erode rose to a 
primrose. Has won all honors conferred by 
the Student Body, and has ron for, or filled 
practically every office of that organization. 
Will be with us next year as Basket-ball

been principal of Uintah Stake Academy. 
He got married once and as a consequence 
has a family. Graduates with honors and 
remains with us as a teacher.

Biology. Looks young but is older and 
wiser than he looks. Became an honor man 
in debate this year. All winter he has been 
manipulating in the biology lab with pigs, 
chickens, cats, etc., so has great wisdom of 
the anatomy of his distant relatives. Isn't 
married but would like to be. Is prepared 
to make a living for two or three — as the case 
might be. 


Psychology. Psychologically, biologically, 
and philosophically, it is about time that 
Williams be graduated. Don't know from 
where, how, or when he came, but he's been 
here digging into things and as a result digs 
out this year. Williams has done good work 
and leaves a strong man. He's married. 



History and Social Science. Larson has 
done good and earnest work and leaves well 
prepared to continue his work in any college. 
He very seldom grows radical and is always 
optimistic claiming with Jordan that "this 
would be a fine place in which to live were it 
not for the people." Thinks the girls are too 
good for him and so isn't married. Is des- 
tined to be a great social reformer. 


Chemistry. Irvin is small but "O, my!', 
there's something to him. In both track 
athletics and basket-ball he's a whirlwind 
honor man. With much special training 
from Ma(w) he is thoroughly prepared to 
leave the school as a bachelor. 



Juniors "Adieu" to the Seniors 

You are leaving us, Seniors, to enter the fight 

Of the "cold, cruel world," like the crew 

Which, perchance, is to sail, or to drift, starve, and die — 

But to pay our respects 'tis at best you're "a-do." 

Have you watched our example these three years in vain? 
Don't you wish you could do like the few; 

Like the Juniors — the men who "make things come their way" 
But alas! 'tis too late, you've been all — well — "a-do." 

Don't you feel, when you think of the bluffs you have run; 
Of the times you have "flunked," of exams you've shd through; 
Of the classes you've "sluffed," of the rules you have bent — 
Don't you feel that you've been but a big— yes— "a-do?" 

Do you think you can play that same trick on the world? 
You may bluff two or three, you may fool just a few. 
But to stay on the top, you must get in and "bone" 
You can't be all hot air, all a sham, all — "a-do." 

Remember the Juniors that goaded you on. 
Aim high at the standards, they raise to your view; 
Just follow the foot-steps they leave on their way. 
Do this and your life will be more than — "a-do."

Sophomore Class 

FTER many hard and severe battles the Class of 19 1 2 has finally risen to one of 
great dignity. More famous students belong to this class than to any other. 
The Class contains a quartette of school-wide fame; a debating team of high 
standing; a track team that never ran; a wrestling team that never wrestled; a 
basket ball team lacking one man; a baseball team lacking five men; mem- 
bers with profound wisdom, philosophers of deep thought, orators of eloquence; 
men who are married, others who would like to be, some who couldn't be, and 
others who shouldn't be; some who are witty, some who are pretty (think they are), some who 
are sports, others who are flirts; some who are Student -body officers, and all are class officers for 
its membership is only four.

The Freshies 

ERHAPS the most notorious class that ever entered the college. At least sixty 
per cent, of its members are new-comers in the school and have not, therefore, 
had the advantages of President Brimhall's distinction between FAME and 
NOTORIETY. They, however, like the little boy making his first stick- 
whistle, give great promise of being heard from in the future. 

Three out of the four stalwarts comprising the executive committee, were 
imported from Mexico especially for the positions, and the fourth was haled, 
after some difficulty, from Spanish Fork. Spanish language is used exclusively in executive 
meetings — none of which meetings, by the way, have yet been held. 

It was the first intention to place the **Bunch of Sweet Daisies" on a page opposite from 
the "Bachelor Butt-ins" ("Butt-ons" under the picture is a misprint), but the latter objected to 
being placed, even in a picture, in such a position of "want to but can't." Due to this objection 
and one registered by other classmen that the Fresh-Butters had no business "goping" at their 
Blossoms, it was decided that in the interests of peace, the "Bunch of Sweet Daisies" should be 
transplanted to an other place.

The Fourth Year High School Class 

HE High School class of I9I0 includes students not only of the High School, 
but also of the Normal, the Commercial, the Arts and Trades, the Agricultural 
and the Music departments. 

The entrance registration in 1906 showed an enrollment of 470 students. 

Tho most of this vast number revealed symptoms of ruralness, they took hold 

of their school work with great determination, and soon began to show 

signs of college hfe. 

Through the efforts of some of their number, a class organization was formed, with 

Preston McGuire, president. Soon after this, however, Mr. McGuire had to leave school 

and Milton H. Sevey was chosen to succeed him. The class also organized a debating society, 

a basket-ball team, and a track team. 

As is usually the case the number had decreased somewhat the second year and many new 
faces were seen placed in place of the old ones. 

Being well initiated in class affairs, they lost no time in organizing: Levy was re-elected pres- 
ident. The class remodeled its constitution, adopted as it's motto "Work and Wait," selected 
as class colors "Moss-green and Garnet," and chose the carnation as its emblem. 

The third year proved a successful year for the H. S. lO's. Two year's training brought 
results. One of the Kirkham medals for debating and both oratorical medals were won by 
members of the class. Besides winning the inter-class championship in basket-ball, the class 
furnished six men on the University baseball nine, and four men on the track team. 

The present year has been a banner year for them. There are about 140 members in the class. 
This year Percy Craven was elected president with Oliver T. Steed as first vice-president 
and Annie Taylor as second vice-president. 

The class this year has furnished one of our inter-coUegiate debators. It was again success- 
ful in winning the inter-class championship in basket-ball. It has a dramatic club and an abund- 
ance of literary talent. 

They have made good in school and will do themselves justice in the battle of life.

The Third Year High School Class 

N the fall of 1907 a very large and entliusiastic class entered the B. Y. U. They 
little thought at that time that they would evolve into the present Third Year 
High School class. 

As a class they began even this first year to show considerable assistlrpic 
and determination in athletics entering basket ball, base bal and track. 

In their second year they seemed to be in earnest in all their undertakings. 
They made a creditable showing in basket-ball and track and were able to land 
second place in baseball. 

This year they began by putting a very strong basket ball team into the class series. The 
series was a hot contest between the I O's and 1 1 's and was finally won by the former. 

In all kinds of athletics the class has been well represented and backed by good spirit and 
class patriotism. 

In other activities the class has been equally progressive and is in every way an up-to-date 
and energetic class organization.

The Second Year High School Class 

"A stalwart race by harmony thus bound 
We laid opposing barriers to the ground; 
They, in derision, scorn despairing throes. 
Pluck diadems of victory from their foes." 

HIS is the way in which the I2's H. S. see themselves. And, in looking back over 
their class history one will see that they have some grounds for this rather ego- 
tistic attitude. 

Immediately upon entering school they showed their aggressiveness by drag- 
ging the U's H. S. through the mill-race. Ever since then they have been up 
to their tricks (especially with those unfortunate foes) by taking the first inter- 
class baseball series in which they competed, the Founder's Day track meet of 
last fall, and inter-class wrestling Championships this year. 

Ever since entering school they have proved themselves to be as they say; the stalwart 
class who "pluck diadems of victory from their foes." 

They are the kind who with enough time and patient training will make good college guys. 




The First Year High School Class 

LTHOUGH it is not nice to tell a compliment on one's self, we cannot refrain 
from telling you that it has been said by reliable teachers that we are the banner 
First Year class. 

We are prood of belonging to the ranks of the B. Y. U. No doubt you are 
proud to have us here and we intend to keep you so. 

We are a very quiet class but are working, nevertheless. Still water runs 
deep you know. 
Our victories in the past have been few, we have not made much pomp or show, but are lay- 
strong foundations and are gaining ground for what we intend to do in the future. We are 
afraid of hard lessons and "Have come to work; to live, to do." 
Each day our aim is higher and our determination to reach it is stronger. 

Success will come at last we know 

To every one who tries. 
In time when we in wisdom grow 

We'll all be College Guys. 



The Sub-High School 

NE of the most unique departments of our school is the Preparatory or Sub-high 
school department. It was established about ten years ago for the purpose of 
giving to those who have not finished the elementary work a chance to do so. 
The desire of the school to do as much good as possible has extended to this de- 
partment and, although some have ridiculed the idea, we should remember that 
after all a school is no greater than the good it does. The sub-high school is cer- 
tainly doing much good. 
Most of the students in the department have been very much beyond the age of grade work 
and have been under many disadvantages, but the fact that they came here under these condi- 
tions shows their courage and determination. 

Such determination as was shown by Lincoln and Garfield is shown here by these men who 
stop in race of life to do a boy's work. They need to be complimented. 

Under the direction of Mr. W. H. Boyle, the school is doing good earnest work and is a 
source of much good. 



The Missionary Class 

T HIS august body is said to have been the "wildest and woolliest" bunch of evan- 
*■ gelistic possibilities that ever entered the "Divinity School." So long as they 
remember the metamorphosis by which they came to their present state of semi- 
domestication they can conscientiously declare to the world that the day of 
Miracles is not past. 

If they fail to soften the hardened sinner with their exhortations they 
can fetch him with their music (?), for "many a time and oft" has their sympa- 
thetic strains of "I Need Thee Every Hour," brought tears from the innocent Domestic Science 
girls on the floor above. 

Until they become somewhat acquainted with the ways of the world, we would advise them 
to heed carefully the ancient admonition and leave their purse at home for fear of pick-pockets, 
and to take no script that they be not tempted by gold bricks and auction sales; neither two 
coats lest the "spirit of gathering come upon them" prematurely and they "soak" one of them 
for a pass to Zion.

Student Body Activities 

HE student body can look with complacency upon the work that has 
been accomplished so far this year. Its policies have been inaugurated 
for the present and future welfare of the organization. 

The student body has aimed to carry on the general activities of the 
college, to compete with other schools, and work out the local problems 
which have confronted it. There are many things which are confronting 
the student body at present which it has never had to meet before. 
These must be met if we keep pace with other colleges. Our present 
activities must also be enlarged and intensified. We must do bigger 
things in a better way. 

There are some prerequisites to the accomplishment of these things which place limita- 
tions upon our student body activities. 

Our system of finance is upon a very poor^basis. Basket-ball and Track are the only activi- 
ties which pay for themselves. Other activities must be maintained from these sources. For 
this reason the organization has been in debt for the last five years. Improvement is certainly 
needed here. 

For the first time we are publishing a weekly paper which has been very successful consid- 
ering the experiment, and the fact that we have so few activities and a limited amount of news. 

Our present system of honor giving is probably the most elaborate in the State. We give 
honors for every activity (all intercollegiate athletics and debating) in the school. This is new 
with us and of course is being enlarged each year and modified so that the official letter is harder 
to get and means more. We have on the east mountain probably the largest letter in the world. 
This year the student body made it into a block letter to conform with the official "Y." 

In athletics and debating the school has never been stronger. Every thing has brought us 
honor. It has been our banner year in Basket-ball and Debating. In our intercollegiate Basket 
ball we won every game and in our Debating we defeated the U. of U. and the U. A. C. 

In answering what have we done, we might ask what hav'nt we done? Perhaps no year has 
brought more laurels to the school than the present one. Thus far this year we have been able 
to win everything and our track team promises to be no exception. In our domestic affairs 
peace and prosperity has prevailed and our dear White and Blue waves on high more proudly 
than ever before.

"Those who have finished by making all others think with them, 
have usually been those who began by daring to think with them- 
selves- — "Colton. 

pEW people are able to think for themselves — to sift essentials from non-essentials, and use 
* them in sustaining an argument. Indeed, they remind one of the Irishman who, being 
told to grease a wagon, returned sometime afterwards, with the information that he had 
greased all of the wagon "except them sticks the wheels hangs on." 

Some debators present all points except "them the decision hatigs on," and loose out. This 
year our debators were men who applied the "dope" to the right spot, and consequently nothing 
could stand before them.

A Survey of Athletics 

^EVER before in the history of the institution has the B. Y. U. been represented 
by a stronger aggregation of athletes than that which has fought our battles this 
year. Our remarkable growth of the last two years has brought us the respect 
and apparently the fear of some of our opponents. The State Track Meet of 
1909 and our clear sweep in Basket-ball this year have been eye-openers. 

But why, you will ask has the B. Y. U. team come to the front so suddenly? 
Is it through exceptional coaching, or through a sudden influx of atliletes? 
Neither. We have made no wholesale drain on the High Schools for ready- 
made athletes, nor have we developed them, through special coaching, with 
mushroom rapidity. It is a slow process — of past training. An athlete cannot 
reach the point of his greatest efficiency in one or two years of training. Not until three or 
four years of earnest drilling do the full benefits of this training begin to be realized. To use 
afigure, years are required for the growth and budding of a tree before the fruit appears. 

In this fact will be seen the great difficulty of our past athletics. With a team of High School 
class, few of them reaching even the fourth year, we have been competing collegemen who, outside 
of training in the local High Schools, have received from three to four years of college drill. The 
fruits of their first years of training have been fully realized while the great majority of our ath- 
letes have left school before this point was reached, branded as "scrubs," greatly to the injustice 
of themselves and the University. 

Chief among the reasons, then, for our present athletic strength is the fact that a few of our 
men have been in athletic work long enough to reach that point where their earlier years of drill- 
ing have begun to bring results. 

Our institution has never before been represented by a stronger, sounder, aggregation of 
athletes, and our prospects for the future were never brighter. Our star of victory has risen, in 
athletics as in all other phases of college activity and, in the face of conditions, must ever con- 
tinue to rise. The four-year rule, with which we are most heartily in favor, if properly adopted, 
will work a slight hardship for a while; but ultimately it will be a splendid thing for us, as with 
all colleges. 

Our possibilities are great. Other institutions have their geographical limits; we have no 
bounds. So long as church schools are established in all parts of the country, so long will our 
atlhetic teams be strengthened by them. We may well be optimistic as to our future in athletics.

State Track Meet 

Logan May 15.— "With the martial strains of the two military bands (U. A. C, and B. Y. U.), 
and cheers from 2500 throats urging on their efforts, the athletes of the four big schools of Utah 
performed on the Agricultural College field to-day in the annual intercollegiate annual track 


and field championships. Five new records and stellar performances in all events marked the 
competitors as the classiest bunch of athletes ever gathered on a cinder path. 

The surprise of the day was the hard fight given the team of the State university by the 
B. Y. U., of Provo, which with eight first places well established its claims to individual stars. 

The relay race was the most exciting race of the day, Baird winning for the B. Y. U., with 
runners of the other teams bunched up within ten feet when the tape was broken. — Salt Lake 
Herald, May 16, 1909. 

Out of five new records Provo made three. Of the fifteen first-place medals Provo took 
eleven, the U. of U. took three, and the B. Y. C. took one. The biggest point winner on the field 
was Baird of the B. Y. U., winning fourteen and one-fourth points.

First Place Winners in State Meet 1909 


Daring the last four years while he has been in our athletic team there hasn't been a more 
earnest trainer than Cham, and his systematic work has borne fruits. He has for the past two 
years, been the invincible in the middle distance races of our state, last year cutting the 
records in both the 440 and the 880 yard runs. He will no doubt place them lower this year. 

Speaking of record breakers: 

"Chamberlain, B. Y. U., 440-yard dash, 52 1-5 seconds, breaking record of Rideout, 
U. of U., made in 1903, of 52 2-5 seconds; Chamberlain, B. Y. U., 880-yard run, 2:03 1-5, 
breaking record of Hume, U. of U., 2:04 3-5, made in 1905."— Salt Lake Herald, May 15, 1909. 



Baird has always been a star, not only last year but ever since he began his athletic career 
in our school in 1906. 

In the dual meet with the U. of U. last year "the Provo Star was Baird. He won the 
broad and high jumps and second in the two-twenty, scoring 13 points." — Herald, May 8, 1909. 

In the State meet last year Baird was the star of the day being the highest point winner, 
capturing 14 1-2 points to his closest opponent's 13. 

In the Stanford meet "Baird was the star of the Provo team, winning the high and 
broad jumps and the two-twenty." — Herald, May 27, 1909. 

He also took second in the hundred-yard dash, making him, with 18 points, the highest 
point winner of the day. 



For the past two years Holdaway has been 
o«r strong hold in the mile (but he's married 
now) and has won the respect of all distance 
runners of the State. His earnest, patient 
training has brought results. 

"Holdaway of Provo pulled out of the field 
(the mile run) with a strong finish and won in 
the good time of 4:50." At State meet. 

—Herald, May 27, 1909. 


Jones is another of the men who helped in 
snatching the relay race fiom the "U" team 
in the State meet last year. He ran an ex- 
cellent race, taking up most of the lead given 
the U. A. C. team by their first man. White- 
head. He won his rep as an athlete in the 
State meet of 1908 by taking the quarter mile. 





Crosby is another living example of what 
patient systematic training will do for a man 
in athletics. In the State meet of last spring 
he ran the third change of the relay race, 
giving Baird the lead which helped run for 
Provo. It was the race of his life and he did 
credit to himself and the school. 

Won first place in shot pat at State meet 
in 1907, and first in hammer throw at State 
meets of 1908 and 1909. Won hammer 
throw from Crawford in Stanford meet with 
138 feet 2 inches. Barred from State meet 
this year by the five-year rule. 



Another of the first place runners of the State meet of last year is Epperson, who 
helped carry off the relay race. "We haven't got his face but he's as good looking "as he 
runs fast." Is married, and has always been one of our stars in baseball. 


All year we've tried to get his picture, but have failed. But that doesn't detract from 
his athletic ability. Lee, in the State meet last spring, was perhaps, the surprise of the 
day by not only capturing first place in the hurdles, but by lowering the State record. He 
himself was, most of all, surprised. — "Simmons, B. Y. U., 220-yard hurdles, 26 1-5 seconds, 
breaking record of Butler, U. of U., 26 4-5, made in 1905"— Herald, May 15, 1909.

The Basket-Bali Season of 1909-1910 

S will be seen by the results of the Inter-coUegiate schedule our basket-ball season 
this year was marked by the greatest success. During the Inter-coUegiate 
games the boys were in good condition and played real basket-ball. 

At the close of the second game with the "U" aggregation, in which they 
were completely outclassed, the score being 31 to 17, Coach Maddock of Utah 
said to a representative of the Salt Lake Tribune, (February 12, 191 0): 

"The B. Y. U. basket-ball team is in my opinion the strongest team in the 
United States. They have the skill and the strength, and their long experience at the game won 
for them. They deserve the victory." 

Coach Bennion said: "Our team won the game because they are better men. I saw the 
United States Inter-coIIegiate championship game between the University of Pennsylvania and 
Chicago, played in 1905, and their playing was in no way as good as the game played to-night."

victory on merit.- 

U. of U. vs. B. Y. U. at Salt Lake City 

In the most exciting contest 

of the inter-collegiate basket- 
ball series thus far seen, the B. 
Y. U. of Provo defeated the U. 
of U., Saturday afternoon by a 
score of 31-27 at the Utah gym. 
From the call of time at the 
beginning of the first half until 
the timer called the last second 
of play, the contest belonged to 
either team. At every attempt 
at the basket from a foul, and 
every time the ball went through 
the air toward the basket, the 
hearts of hundreds of suppor- 
ters of both schools were flutter- 
ing. When the final call of time 
was made, the air was rent 
with the cheers of the suppor- 
ters of the Provo team. The 
B. Y. U. had won a great game, 
scored by far the greater number of field goals [13 to 7] and

-Herald-Republican, Feb, 6, I9I0, 

B. Y. U. vs. U. of U. 


We need only refer to the quo- 
tations of the two coaches on page 
126 to give you the impression 
made by this great game. 




Cham, our left forward, like his honorable 
colleague, has proved himself to be a basket- 
ball phenomenon. He has generally come out 
on top as the star basket-thrower at the end 
of the basket-ball seasons when the total of 
the year's baskets is considered. Cham has 
always been with basket-ball, as with the girls, 
very quiet and unassuming, but when it 
comes to the test he's there with the goods. 
Unlike Rose, he wasn't married young, but in 
spite of the fact seems to be just as prosper- 



Oor veteran in the basket ball as in every- 
thing else. Has made a remarkable record 
as a basket-tosser, and has been looked upon 
with wonder from the side-lines, bot the oppo- 
nents who have guarded him have had no 
time to wonder. Rose was married early in 
life which rather blighted his basket-ball 
career. Had it not been for this fact, there 
would not have been room in this book for his 


'Mnry'reSfmiJ up rDrfficHJ'^ume 


It's a long way from the top of Homer's 
head to the soles of his feet but there's some- 
thing worth while between them. He's re- 
markably active (and graceful) on the floor 
for a man of his size and architecture, which 
according to the Herald-Republican, is of the 
ancient Greek style. Several times he has 
been chosen as the All-State Star as a center. 
He has the failing though, of getting both 
arms around. 




Jack is the other man who has kept the 
other fellow from throwing baskets, and be- 
sides this he has always managed to slip in 
two or three baskets over him. This year he 
did the "four* stunt too, in a manner which 
showed him to be experienced in that line. 
He has, of course, been between two fires — 
Preston and Richfield getting roasted on 
both sides. Jack has done good work as a 



In the short time he has been with us, Ted 
has made a remarkable rep. as a guard in 
basket-ball as well as a student, a 
queener, and, recently, as a teacher. He's 
the only man in our team that can wear 
out a pair of shoes in one game, which can 
readily be understood by those who have seen 
his jumps. Talk about the kangaroo! Ted 
has been elected captain of the team for next 





"Twin sister" of Lee in 
size, speed, and good looks. 
Beats his man by running him 
down. He is a very speedy 
nippy player. Graduates this 
year so will not be with us 


Although Greenwood has 
been but a sub this year he 
has proved himself to be one 
of the best guards of the 
State. He "covers" his man 
every moment, and let him 
once get hold of the ball and 
it's there to stay. Will be a 
strong man for next year. 


In basket-ball as in track 
We tried for his face but met 
with a "sack." 

Lee, however, is just as 
speedy and clever on the bas- 
ket-ball floor as he is going 
over the hurdles. In Lee we 
have another strong man for 
the next year's team. 



The Second Team 

ON'T let the name by which this aggregation is known, lead you to look upon them 
as a second class team. It simply means that we have too many first-class men 
to play in one team and consequently, from the very nature of things, a segrega- 
tion had to be made. 

While the main team has them skinned in size and experience, yet in nippy 
passing and speed, they might take lessons from their little brothers. 

Some of the hardest struggles of our Veteran Five have been with a picked 
second team, and one need only to have seen how mercilessly they dealt with the the L. D. S. first 
team (47—12 in our favor) to get an appreciation of the quality of the practice thus given the 
State Champions. In fact our "little team" has always made the "big boys" get in and stir the 
air, and it is to them largely that we owe our success in basket-ball.

Higgs on Our Athletic Situation, March 29, 1910 

< <I 'LL tell yoo our athletics is dying; right now it is dying because we can't lift the 
•^ load that is hanging over us in Salt Lake City. I was talking to brother Osmond. 
I said: 'By George, you ought to do something; either tell the students that you 
are not going to meet or else get in and try to make those fellows tread water. 
Now go and tell that Secretary you want to see those minutes, and see how they 
compare with the Articles of Agreement that we have here. It does not agree 
with our papers. Now then, we want to either go up and lick them for insult- 
ing us or go and see those minutes." ("But", it was suggested, "we haven't freedom of the press 
as they have.") 

"Well, damn the newspapers. I had a brush with that newspaper reporter. I told him, 
*You won't give us a square deal,' and he took it up. I says, 'Do you know how I feel about it?' 
I said, 'I feel just like I would lick him.' 'Well,' he said, 'what if it were me.' 'If it was you, 
then I think I would try it.' He said, 'I certainly admire your courage, anyway.' " 

Caught by McMurrin, March 29, '10. 

"I remember once when we went up there (to the U. of U.) they tried their monkey busi- 
ness on us, and they were going to make us do as they said or else they would not do anything. 
We gave them a licking. There was one fellow who stood back and was going to hit Prof. Nelson, 
and Nelson said: 'Don't you do it, don't you do it.' " 

"You ought to have had one red-headed man there to represent Hans. You know, he 
would like to get out of the honor of that calling, but he cannot do it ; that's part of it. It is 
becoming a dignified position for it is sought for by men of learning." 

Higgs, caught by McMurrin, March 29, '10. 



THIS year has, in a sense, been a sad year for all forms of athletics, due to the continual rang- 
ling on eligibility initiated by certain individuals in the state being afraid of defeat and con- 
sequently trying to sneak out of it. And speaking of sad times, baseball, of all the sports 
has experienced the saddest. Besides outside difficulties which finally resulted in the with- 
drawal of our team from the State league, it has, ever since its initiation into the school as a col- 
lege, sport met with the opposition of many of our own students. 

Now as we are going to have two coaches base-ball will be a good sport for us and if entered 
at all should be pushed right to the front. Base-ball in our school has a much brighter future 
than it formerly has had.

B. Y. U. to the Front 

THE work of the B. Y. U. wrestlers, considering the fact that it was the first out- 
side competition, was of a high order. The Provo boys were all aggressive and 
in good condition and with the experience and instruction of another year will 
be hard to beat in their classes." — Herald-Republican, March 25, 19 10. 

Such was the opinion of those who witnessed the State Amateur Wrestling 
Tournament at Salt Lake City, March 24th. Our boys did excellent work, sur- 
prising all — themselves, perhaps, more than anybody else. 
Provo has, of course, been little heard of in the past, in this phase of athletics, and nothing 
was expected from her. The results show clearly, however, that scientific training alone is not 
enough to make a wrestler. The science must be applied to the right kind of "stuff," and where 
could better "stuff" be found than in our husky farmer lads? They have the strength, endur- 
ance and determination, and that is what counts, in amateur wrestling. 

The B. Y. U. has unbounded possibilities in this manly sport, with the abundance of first- 
class material from which to choose a team, and she may be expected to be heard from in the 
future tournaments. 

On representation consisted of six men — the entries numbered close to fifty; yet, out of six 
championships and six second places, our men carried off one championship and two second 
places ,and that against men who have not only held titles in other states, but have been in train- 
ing under the crack "Yokel." 

The men winning honors were: Ogden, State Championship, 125 pound class; Lambert, 
second place in the same class; and Miller, second place in the 145 pound class. The other men, 
although not winning medals did work of which we may be proud of. 




The Girl's Gym Club 

The Girl's Gym Club is an organization of all the girls taking gym work. The club has 
been up and doing this year. Besides giving several choice matinees, in which new dances 
were introduced, they have given us some exhibition work in the form of cross-country runs, etc. 


The White and Blue 

I HIS is a two-faced world. Every thing has its two sides. We need to go no 
farther than to this book, and its contents, for abundant proof of the fact. 
The book, as a whole, has its two sides; the faculty as contrasted on pages 00 
and 00 present different appearances; debating and athletics are made possible 
only by this two-sided nature of things; and so it is from one side of the 
world to another. 

Now the White and Blue, although an exceptional paper, is no exception 
to this general rule. It, too, has its front side, the bright side, — the side presented to the 
public, and its — ''other side," the side which the students are not permitted to see, the side 
upon which the Editor sits all alone, the tiresome side. We are ever advised to present a 
"bold front" whatever be the condition of the "other side." This the White and Blue has been 
doing all year, so we shall try to present a view of this "other side," the side which has caused 
our Editor and his staff so much pain. 

Come with me to the White and Blue office at any time and see him (the Editor) crouched 
over his desk, spending three-fourths of his energy concentrating his attention, amid the din and 
clamor of those Banyan workers in one corner; Thatcher Jones and his gang fixing up basket- 
ball tickets in another; President Rose grumbling at the noise; Homer, Jack, Cham, and the rest 
of them, talking about the girls; B. T. Higgs railing on athletics, debating, faculty policy, etc.; 
and about six loafers hammering at the doors, — see this and you get the picture. 

But in what, you say, is he so absorbed? Come closer. Note how the headlines and ads. 
are arranged in his dummy, and how, with all his soul, he is stretching the abundant (?) supply 
of material, received from the generous students, to fill up the intervening space. Note the 
heart-rendering tragedies and side-splitting comedies that need re-touching, re- writing or Some 
times (!) throwing away; read a few of the jokes over which he must strain his eves to see the 
points, or exert his imagination to create some; hear the sad story of delayed etchings and half- 
tones, etc., and of broken down printing presses; then listen to the clamor of anxious students, 
on Fridays, for the White and Blue, and you may get some idea of the condition of the "other 
side" of this White and Blue proposition, — you may have some sympathy with the fellow "back 
of the scenes."

The Banyan 

Now someone got an idea a little 

while ago 
That we should have a year book to let the 

people know 
That this dear school is growing and very 

soon will be 
As great as any dreamer co«Id wish that it 

should be. 

So it was agitated through our friend the 

"White and Blue/' 
And in the college club room was discussed a 

time or two. 
It seemed the only class in school who knew 

just what to do 
Was the class of 191 1— The Juniors B. Y. U. 

After much debating and kicking and 

The J boosters came out victors upon the 

final day. 
When it was to be decided if we have a book 

or no? 
And a staff was quickly chosen to try to make 

it go. 

At first things went so smoothly with plans 
of pictures fine, 

And jokes and poems and writeups to the ex- 
tent of many a line. 

The staff thought they would have a snap 
and not much work to do. 

Just ask for "dope" and get it if they'd wait 
a day or two. 

But alas for idle dreamers their dream will 

ne'er come true. 
The "dope" you wish to pubhsh no other man 

will do; 
They waited long and patiently but not much 

"dope" came in 
As a last resort, the time was short, they had 

to buckle in. 

And though this book may 'pear to you as 

nothing but a joke. 
And the staff a crowd of people who simply 

made a smoke. 
Our wish to all who read this book, where ever 

they may be. 
Is that they can see this school is the 

trunk of a banyan tree. 




•HE clear conception, outrunning the deductions of logic, the high purpose, the dauntless 
spirit, speaking on the tongue, beaming from the eye, informing every feature, and urg- 
ing the whole man onward, right onward, to his object, — this is eloquence, or rather it is 
something greater and higher than all eloquence — it is action, noble, sublime, godlike action." 

To develop men of this kind of eloquence has been the aim in the class of oratory or public 
speaking. To make clear thinkers wth the ability to express heir thoughts has been its task, 
for, as Carlyle says: "God gave you that gifted tongue of yours, and set it between your teeth, 
to make known your true meaning to us, not to be rattled like a muffin man's bell." 

To this end of bringing out the best that is in them in thought and expression, two medals 
have been established by enthusiastic citizens of Provo. 


The man who won the Barton & Blake Medal, given for 
the Best Washington Birthday Oration 


The man who won the Jex Medal, given for the Best Oration on 

any subject. Craven also won first place In the State High

AFT DAY" was a great day for Provo, and a time for some ,not soon to be for- 
'M gotten even though we waited so long and anxiously to see the face of "only a 

Shortly before one o'clock, September 24th, the train pulled in and the 
President Taft and his company, amid the cheers of hundreds, dismounted and 
took seats in the automobiles that were waiting to take them on their short tour 
through our beautiful city. 

The city being most appropriately decorated with the national colors, 
streamers, and pictures of the President, presented a pretty view, and along 
with the hearty cheers of the spectators, made the President feel how royally 
welcome he was. 
The automobiles made their way to Temple Hill and there in the east was a most magnifi- 
cent sight, a sight which of all was most highly appreciated. High on the mountain side stood 
in its majesty the gigantic "Y" crowned with the word "TAFT." 

If we stop to consider that Mr. Taft is a Yale man we can perhaps get some idea of the 
thoughts brought up by that inspiring sight. He was delighted and earnestly gave vent to his 


After congratulating us on our "most promising valley, and on our magnificent university 
site," he was taken to the tabernacle which had long since been packed to its utmost capacity, 
while hundreds crowded around the building. After a short spirited address, a hearty hand-shake 
and a kindly farewell, the party was taken to the depot en route for their next destination, and 
all returned to their work with renewed spirits, having been in the presence of the head of our 
great nation.

"What a spectacle we made, 
With the school kids all in line, 
Banners waving, feet in time. 
Up and down the street we went. 
Feeling like a small one cent. 

What a spectacle we made, 
On parade! 



Founder's Day 

FOUNDER'S DAY is an annual affair with us and on each occasion the nature of the celebra- 
tion is about the same. So to call our minds back to the happy day, we need only recall the 
hustle and bustle of the student getting ready to form in line for the usual march; the 
band playing and the students cheering; the pennants and flags waving and other characteristic 

Last fall we didn't take our annual march through town as has been the custom but directed 
it toward Temple Hill, where all witnessed the laying of the corner stone by the President of our 
board, Joseph F. Smith. The day was enjoyed thoroughly by all. 



Charge of the Vaccinate 

"Vaccinate, vaccinate!" 
Pass the word onward, 
Or in the valley of death 
Go by the hundred. 
To the rest room," he said. 
Heeding the call they came 
Frightened six hundred. 

"Forward the fair brigade," 
Was there a girl dismayed? 
Not though the lasses saw 
Pocket books plundered. 
There's not to make reply 
There's but to do or die, 
And to the valley of death 
Go by the hundred. 

Smallpox to the right of them. 
Smallpox to the left of them. 
Rumored and thundered. 
Pricked by the bright scalpel 
Receiving the vaccine cell, 
Or in the jaws of death 
Into the mouth of hell. 
Pass by the hundred. 

Flashed all their shoulders bare, 
Flashed as they waited there — 
Facing the doctor's chair. 

Charging a quarter while 
All the school wondered! 
Giving the blade a poke 
Right there the skin he broke. 
But not a pale-face spoke. 
Nor turned from the sabre-stroke. 
Shattered and sundered 
Each in her turn stepped by. 
Holding her arm up high, 
"Waiting the stuff to dry. 
Patient six hundred. 

Smallpox to right of them, 
Smallpox to left of them. 
Smallpox around them. 
Rumored and thundered, 
A scratch from the sharp scalpel 
Guarded and watched so well. 
How through the jaws of death, 
Back from the mouth of hell. 
With many a painful yell 
Came the six hundred. 

Who can such courage shake? 
Oh, the wry face they make 
E'en thought the vaccinate 
Never has thought to take, 
Noble six hundred. 
—From White and Blue, Dec. 3, '09. 



"Y" DAY 

TT HAT the Chinaman is not the only worshipper "of the works of the fathers," was 
*■ proved conclusively on March 1 6, when the student body turned out to ren- 
ovate the great "Y". Aside from the usual whitewashing, it was decided to 
change the letter into a block **Y." This move necessitated an addition of eight 
thousand square feet of rock — almost one-third of the size of the letter. 

At 7 :30 A. M. four hundred stalwarts assembled at the foot of the mountain, 
and proceeded to carry the one hundreds bushel of lime up the steep, half-mile 
incline to the **Y." Arriving here in about one hour, each class took up the task pieviously as- 
signed by the committee. Forty tub-fulls of water were carried down the slope from the snow- 
bank; brush was cleared and rocks were laid and whitewashed. 

At noon it needed no "second call" to induce the boys to utilize a twenty minute lunch period. 
After luncheon, the same program was, in general, followed, with the addition .however, 
of dodging boulders turned loose from the ledges above by a few accomodating "sluffers." This 
latter action was not frought without good results, for it inspired the following effusion: 
and peaks, we're with you once 

"Ye crags 
How far are we above the working men! 
Great Beelzebub has led us here to shirk. 
And gaze in scorn upon the fools that work, 
Give us, oh Crag! a boulder from thy breast, '' 
And we'll make it hot as hell for all the rest!" 

"Liberally did the crag give, and those 
Sleep-producing baby-meteors which spun 
Lustily down thru the crowd caused many, 
A man to think of his past deeds and of, 
The folks at home with loving mother. 
Linnets unceremoniously quit their oriparous- 
Functions to seek safety in the adjoining canyon. 
"I did not carry rocks because I stuffed, 
I thot those other guys were easily bluffed. 
Who thot my hair would lose a single tuft? 
Who thot that they to me would be so rough? 
Why, I'd rather build a "Y" alone, I say 
Than have my glossy fore-top cut all away." 

— Confession of a Sluffer, 
Finishing the "renovation" of both the "Y" and the "sluffers," at 3:30 P. M., the boys came 
down to the University lawn, where the young ladies served a dinner, the very thots of which 
causes the water to rise so high in your chroniclers' mouth, as to completely submerge his brains- 
so-glub! — goodbye-glub! glub!

NOT since the good old days of the**Ras" has so much excitement over a student Body election 
prevailed, as was manifest during the last campaign. Following the nomination of candi- 
dates at the convention of College and Fourth Year students, two political parties organized; 
the Students' Party under the leadership of Larsen, and the Boosters' Party under Mitchell. 
Immediately "things began to happen." Placards, hand-bills, rallies with their attendant red- 
hot and freezing speeches, bands and music, fist-fights and free-for-alls, spoiling reputations, 
intimidating and flattering the so-called weaker sex — and the Preps: — these were but a few of 
the student activities on Election Day and the days immediately preceding. The Students' 
Party publicly accused the Booster's with "swiping" certain proposed planks from the former's 
platform. The latter replied by charging their opponents with making vain promises to the 
High School in exchange for votes. The unfortunate part of these charges was that they were, 
in the main, true. Another unfortunate thing was that a few of the students took the election 
seriously, which is a'ways out of place. The results were satisfactory to the victors, however, 
so that there ought to be no further "kick." 


Junior Day, April 1, 1910 

HE first official Junior Day ever granted in the University was celebrated at a 
fitting time, in a fitting place, and with a fitting girl for each Junior boy. 
April the first, nineteen hundred ten — by the way, both the year and the day 
were coined especially for the class of " n ", because if you add the digits of 
1 910 the sum is "11," and if you think of yourself (Number One) you immedi- 
ately revert to a fool, which in turn, reminds you of April Fool's Day, the 
date of which is One. Now put the two "Ones" together and you have an 

"n."Q. E. D. ^ 

In fact, every condition of the day was moulded, by the Class, unto an ** U ' — There were 
'*\V* Juniors who took part in the morning program — causing "U" x "IT'ty hearty laughs; 
"H" (minus two) married Juniors chaperoned nearly two times "11" unmarried "11" *s to the 
lake, where each one ate enough for "U," and — well, had a he — "11" of a time generally. 



Junior Song 

Tell OS Seniors, tell «s. Listen, Seniors, listen 

"Why you'r looking glam and sad. We^are on o«r upward flight, 

Don't yoo think that you will graduate. Our aim is high, our purpose firm. 

Well really that's too tad. And we'll sorely reach the hight. 

Listen, Seniors, listen; Night and day we'er working. 

Dry those tears, don't look so blue, Our true worth we wish to prove. 

In another year we'll seniors be? And we'll make our spirit felt for good. 

And perhaps we'll pull yoo thru. If the whole world we must move. 

Chorus: — 

Makes no difference where you wander, 
Makes no difference where you roam. 
You will hear our fame and glory, 
Far away as here at home. 
When they ask you why we're famous. 
Why we stand for all that's true. 
Tell them that we are the top notchers.

Arbor Day 

ARBOR DAY was celebrated, in "about the proper style." Classes continued until the- 
ology hour when a rousing program was enjoyed by all present, after which the students 
marched to Temple Hill, east of the campus where, by the music of the band, they 
planted about two hundred trees and three hundred shrubs. 

In the afternoon an athletic contest was pulled off between the College and High School. 
A dance was given at night. 

The *T" Tree 

Now for a dear symbolic tree 
Upon this Arbor day. 
Let hearts be raised in grateful praise 
And voices sing hurah! 

Our school was once a sappling tree — 

God planted it we know. 
And through the stress of changing years 

Has willed the tree to grow. 

Through scorching heat and biting frosts 

The sapling passed its years? 
More rugged grew as storm clouds burst 

More fair 'neath rain-cloud tears. 

Time's hand is pruning well the tree 
Now grown to monster size — 

A "Y" behold! and 'neath its shade 
A thousand growing Y's. 

God's blessing be upon them all, 

And may the grand old tree 
With arms outstretched in holy praise 

A living symbol be. 

— A jingle by A. Y. 


Smudge Pot Day 

ON Thursday, April 1 4th a message was received from our local weather bureau that the tem- 
perature that night would go below the freezing point and that unless we resort to arti- 
ficial means of heat the fruit crop would be taken. 
Provo and the near vicinity was in need of help; why shouldn't the school do something. 
President Brimhall called a mass meeting at 4 o clock to discuss what to do. The agri- 
cultural teachers told us the condition and that the Commercial Club needed men. 

Students and Faculty volunteered their services to the farmers and fruit growers to the ex- 
tent of thre hundred men. 

If Utah county could have been seen that evening from a cloud the impression would have 
been that the whole country was on fire. Smudge pots and smudge piles were put to use in 
practically every orchard. 

The smoke thus developed proved to be genuine in most cases so that thousands of bushels 
of fruit were saved. 



Some Past Stunts 

HE Brigham Young University is unique in at least one particular; the kind of 
student patriotism which is manifested. ^Not only do the students support 
athletic and other activities; but from time to time they get out and work for a 
day upon some improvement. 

In 1 90 1 the students dug a sewer half mile long, they graveled side walks and 
planted trees and lawn. 

A few years ago the athletic field was given to the school. There was no 
fence and the land was in a very rough condition. In 1904 the student body bought the lumber 
to build an eight-foot fence and a large grand stand. The work of erection was done by the 
student body. 

On the same ground they built one of the best cinder tracks and athletic fields in the West. 
One of the most enjoyable trips ever made was in the spring of 1906 when the faculty and 
students went up to the five hundred acre farm and cleared it of sage brush. Such contests as 
they did have that day! Classes tried to out-do each other in the amount of brush they rooted up. 
The amount of work can be realized when one thinks of the size of the farm which was all 
covered with sage brush. Incidentally some sport was had with a few stray Jack-Rabbits. 

Last year the road to the campus was made straight and of even grade, which was by no 
means a small job. 

Very few years in the history of the school have passed in which some work of this kind has 
not been done. We have been most fortunate in this respect and hope that each year will fur- 
nish us new opportunities for patriotism. 



The College Club 

HE College Club is the official organization of all College students. The ori- 
ginal aims for its existence were :( I ) to stimulate interest in debating, 
and (2) to bring the students together in a social way. 

On September 25, '06, the club was formally organized with Hans 
C. Peterson president. Shortly afterwards, the club room was opened to 
College students "FOR STUDY PURPOSES." Club meetings were held 
once in two weeks, at which essentially the following program was 
carried out: 

Extemporaneous Speech, Extemporaneous Debate, Prepared 
Speech, Prepared Debate, Criticism, Business. 
At these meetings debators were chosen to represent the University in the Inter-coIIegiate debates. 
In February, '07 J. W. Robinson was elected President, and the Club continued to extend 
its operations — especially along social lines. 

In the fall of '07 the organization paid a debt of honor — and Wm. E. Morgan became Pres- 
ident. During his tenure of office everything prospered in spite of the world-wide panic. 

On February 5, '08, Miss Nellie Schofield was chosen to "stand at the helm." The first 
official action was to instill new life into the club by giving a dance — the like of which no man 
hath seen from that day onward. 

By this time the formal debating societies had increased in influence and power, and as a 
result, the College Club meetings became mainly social events ^ altho the ordinary class activi- 
ties were carried on. This system has been followed in general for the last two years. 

In September '08, Henry Rose inherited the "Presidential job" and the College continued 
to do things — especially in field athletics. The inter-class meet on Founder's Day was won with 
ease, but while the stalwarts were gazing for more fields to conquer, the third years H. S. took 
advantage of this momentary abstraction, and 'filched' the Basket-ball Trophy. 

Still feeling 'blue' over this loss, the club elected Sherwin Maeser "Chief Condoler." His 
condolences were of the pushing sort, so after having stripped the fourth years H. S. of any glory — 


and hair, that coold be found in their possession, the college carried off the inter-class wrestling, 
and track meets. 

September, '09 found the club in need of a guide, and Curtis T. Larsen was chosen for the 
position. His reign was one of peace and good will — special impetus being given to social and 
intellectual activities. 

In February, 19 10 the burden of controlling these college guys was again changed being 
placed upon Paul Ashworth, who has proved a Roosevelt in administrative affairs, and the club 
has prospered.

The Myster Club 

HE Myster Clob is an organization of the Kindergarten girls. They are fally 
organized this year, with Ida Jensen as president and Floy Larsen and Verna 
Scott as vice-presidents. The number now belonging to the dab is fifty-three, 
all engaged in kindergarten work. 

The purpose of the club is to bring the girls closer together. They do this 
by having their club meetings every two weeks. In these meetings they discuss 
things of interest going on in the kindergartens of the world, and become ac- 
quainted with some of the best literature, and receive recreation in the form of kindergarten 
hops, skips, and jumps. 

Every girl who joins the club previously resolves that she is willing to give up her brighter 
prospects and be an old maid. Yet, in a short time, she becomes so developed and gains such 
perfect control of herself that no one ever suspects that she is a kindergarten girl. Although they 
have no **Misters" among them they try to look happy

A Few Points about Our Social Life 

UR social life here is not the typical social life of many Colleges. By some it may 
be said to be lacking in college spirit and, while it might be improved in this 
respect, it is undoubtedly, by this very fact, much enhanced. The Univer- 
sity overrun with frats, societies, etc., cannot have that unpretentious, whole- 
some social intercourse which characterizes our school life. Our social activ- 
ities have known comparatively little of classes or aristocracies, for there has 
been a free intermingling of all students. This certainly has its charms which 
must be lacking where the students separate into their little "casts," looking down on those 
below them and, being looked down upon by those above. 

During the past year there has been no shortage of social activities; in fact, there have been 
more than the students get time to attend. Each class has given from one to three socials during 
the year. The Student Body as a whole has given some most excellent entertainments in the way 
of socials, athletic spoits, etc., and recently it has been given an hour a week for a rousing pro- 
gram. Matinees are given once a week and each holiday has its party. An excellent lecture 
course has been put on this year, and so one can go on and enumerate the activities that have been 
within the students* reach in a social way. 

The only functions that can justly be assigned to the social activities of the school are recre- 
ation or enjoyment, and that activity which makes men of action, men of social interests in later 
life. To these ends our social life has been very adequate and what more could be asked. 


The Junior Prom. 

HE particular Junior Prom (a hop or blowout) which this narrative commits to 
writing held forth in the gymnasium on April Fool's day, at night. 

The occasion was revolutionary. There was no congregating of gents about 

a charming flirtation frap in despairing effort to cinch the 1 6th dance. All work 

in advance proved null and void. No one was permitted to engage a partner 

for more than the "next dance." This sometimes resulted in a daring dash for 

damsels, but worked out satisfactorily on the whole. 

The refreshments, consisting of ice cream cones, punch and cake, were original in the main 

and of exceptional quality. The way they held out, too from the grand march to the medley, 

showed that the refreshment committee had made a special study of human appetite, when the 

owner indulges in vigorous sport; zum Beispiel, barn dancing. 

It is at such times as this that all promenade. Even the inflated seniors, without the slight- 
est embarrassment, are tempted to prick up their ears, kick up their heels, and show other mule 
characteristics, all the while indulging in heel and toe stunts that would rival Jane at the jubilee.

The "Y" Ball 

THE grand Y ball given by the Student Body Friday evening, 
March 1 8th was easily the most successful (except finan- 
cially) and brilliant social happening that has been carried 
out in the University Gymnasium building during many years. 

The pennant effects were the most unique and charming that have 
been seen at a school dance. In the center of the hall, amid an 
array of electric globes and suspended by strong cord, was a "life 
sized" basket in white and blue colors with its hanging appendage, — 
a practical basket ball, — remaining, as usual, in caged position 
about its receptacle. From this very appropriate figure carried 
to every corner, side, and end of the hall, were strings on which 
alternated the official pennants of all the larger institutions of 
America. On the south wall and at the end of the hall under 
the band stand stood a huge Y in white and blue colors. On each 
side of the letter emblem, cosily arranged, were refreshment stands, 
where plenty of the usual ball room delicacies were kept in stock. 

Add to this the pretty dancing programs that defy description, 
together with a full orchestra, and you have complete mention of 
the unique features of the Y ball. 

Dancing continued until one o'clock, when all dispersed, cheer- 
fully expressing themselves as having had a most enjoyable time.

The Music School 

ERHAPS the best known department of our University is our Music School. It 
has always been before the public with much credit to ourselves. 

From a very humble beginning, when Dr. Maeser was the whole faculty, it has 
developed into the best music school in the middle west. 

Prof. Giles was the first special music teacher the school had. He taught 
everything in the line of music (and had time to teach the Provo schools too). 
The most characteristic feature of the growth of this department is the num- 
ber of special departments it now contains such as; vocal, instrumental, wind instruments, har- 
mony, violin, band, orchestra. In all there are nine special departments with special teachers 
in each. 

The most popular course is the four year music course which gives general culture in addi- 
tion to special music training. Two years ago a two year's course in public school 
music was put in. 

The choir has always been a most delightful organization. We especially appreciate the daily 
music it furnishes at devotional. 

Under the direction of Prof. Lund the music school has put on an opera each year. Some of 
the best remembered are the "Daughter of the Regiment," "Priscilla," "Beggar Student," and 
"Princess Ida." This year they put on "Maritana." 

The music school has certainly won much honor and has our best wishes for continued

There is some who likes the city. 

Roads all stone, without no dust, 
Trouse;s creased, an' shoes a-shinin' 

Choakin' collars, all such stuff; 
Theie is some likes lily fingers, 

Weaiin' specks for style and looks, 
Actin* silly over science, 

Bendin' 'late o'er dry old books. 

But fer me, give me a wagon, 

An' a span o' horses gray. 
That can pull three ton of taters. 

Off a field on any day. 
I don't care to hear no speakin', 

Sittin' in a seat to stay; 
I would rather hear the music 

Of my mower, cuttin* hay. 

Give to me my oV brown straw-hat, 

An' some clothes, if patched will do, — 
Some I ain't afraid of spoilin', 

Say some overalls of blue, 
Then I feel jes' like I'm home, sir 

I'm not used to styles, yo' know; 
I don't like these hats a-Iookin' 

Like a rooster 'bout to crow. 

Oh, 'tis fun up in the mornin'. 

When the stais aie scarcely gray, 
Listenin' to the cattle lowin' 

Fer their feed o' new-mown hay; 
And to breathe the scented fragrance 

Of the air so f^esh and cool. 
Seems to me, then, life 's worth livin'. 

Rather 'an bein' shut in school. 

I don't want no art exhibit, 

Seein' paintin's in a room; 
They can't beat the sights I'm used to 

When the flow'rs are all in bloom; 
An' the corn an' pum'kins growin'. 

An' my day's work is all done; 
Then's the time to see your pictures. 

All aroun' the settin' sun. 

They can't tell me life's a failure, 

'Cause you've always plowed an' hoed, 
Tho' they call you green an' awkward — 

If some college guy will load, 
I can pile on hay so fast, sir. 

An' I'll bet my crop of corn. 
That he won't be apt to crawl out 

'Till the resurrection mom. 


He, the stars in heaven could number, 

'Cause he'd studied 'stronon^y, 
But I'll bet he couldn't figger 

Out a common single tree; 
Fer myself I'd be a schemin' 

How the earth I could stay near, 
Countin' all the folks, an' seein' 

How much wheat to plant next year. 

I don't b'lieve in havin' studies 

Pounded thru yo' in fine form, 
Seems to me they rush thru college 

Like you husk and shell out corn; 
If you're not a finished kernel. 

If a polish you can't claim. 
That don't keep you from a livin' 

Like a true man, jes' the same. 

I ain't scart of bein' sunburnt, 

Gettin' on my hands some dirt; 
Seems to me it's jis' the color. 

Shows a lad ain't 'fraid to work; 
I don' hke these sickly people, 

Always 'pearin' nice an' white, 
'Fraid to look outside the winder 

Fear of gettin' in the light. 

I suppose you'll think I'm foolish 

'Cause I talk to you this way, 
But don't think I'm 'pos'd to learnin', 

Only in a sort a' way; 
I'm a child of outdoors — nature — 

An' I love fresh air an' light; 
I'll, you bet, stick up fer farmin' 

With the biggest kind o' fight.

Agricultural Department 

HE common cry of a few years ago was "stay on the farm," but we have now 
reached the stage where we say, not "stay on the farm" but "back to the farm," and 
if we take this for what it says, not for what some may think it says, we shall 
come out alright. To go back to the farm, pre-supposes a leaving the farm; and 
plainly this leaving must be a leaving for school, for what sane farmer lad would 
leave the farm for any other place! Hence back to the farm is only another way of saying 
"back from school." 

It is every day becoming plainer that to be a successful "tiller of the soil" one must first 
have "cultivated his brains". Weedy, unfruitful intellects have caused more failures in farming 
than have weedy, unfruitful soil. The age of the "horse-strength" farmer is past. We are fast 
evolving into the age of the "common-horse-sense" farmer. The different times of the moon, 
nowadays, plays but a little part in the production of big-headed cabbages, long-eared corn, 
bright-eyed potatoes, or strong onions. The best fruits of the successful farmer come from his 

Hence to develop good heads on the boys, to teach them to think and act for themselves, 
to make them masters, not slaves, of the soil, to teach them TRULY TO LIVE in this the freest, 
most pleasant and independent life, is the aim of the Agricultural Department. 

This year it has been most eminently successful. The teachers have been alive and ener- 
getic in their work and have succeeded in developing a bunch of quite respectable, intelligent- 
looking farmers, as may be seen on the opposite page. 





Fine Arts 

"The modern majesty consists in work. What a man can do 
is his greatest ornament, and he always consults his dignity by 
doing it." — Carlyle. 

TRUE, what these Arts students can do (and they're training to be doers), is their best orna- 
mentations, for "they're better than they look." 

The Department of Fine Arts includes the regular Art Department of brush, pencil and 
manual training work; the Department of Domestic Science and Domestic Art; carpentry and 
woodwork, with the more closely related subjects. The aim of the work is to develop men and 
women who can do things. It trains for practical as well as aesthetic lives — aims to develop the 
three "H's" — to develop the heart especially. 

Some of their work is just simply great. Why,, one day B. F. Larson painted a hen so life- 
like that, when he threw it in the waste basket, it lay there. Stunts equally marvelous are of 
daily occurrence and, seriously, the department is doing work of which they may well be proud. 
To conclude, we wish to express our thanks to certain members of the department, especially 
the Principal, who have given us much help in the art work of The Banyan.

** PATRIOTISM" has ever been the great characteristic of the students of the Brigham Young 
f^ University. Whenever there has been a serious need, they have stood in mass, back of 
their Alma Mater. And this patriotism, too, with which they are imbued, is not the 
kind that wears off immediately upon leaving the influence of the school. It is the kind which 
creates in every alumnus a living desire to do something in the attempt to repay the institution 
for what it has done for him. 

This is the kind of Alumni Association that stands back of our school. They are men who 
do things — pushers; and one needs only to refer to their past achievements, and the great under- 
taking of the Maeser Memorial, to see their attitude toward the University and its development. 


History of the Maeser Memorial 

2) HE first impulse that moved Dr. Maeser's students, after the hour of mourning 
had passed, was an impulse to rear to his memory some worthy memorial. 
Several ideas were extant as to what that memorial should be. There were 
those who believed it was his students' part to mark his last resting place with 
a monument of marble; yet othets felt that a life-sized statue in bronze should 
stand at the portal where the B. Y. U. student enters. The greater number, 
by far, of Dr. Maeser's students were imbued with the idea that the only fitting 
tribute to his memory would be a memorial building, to form one of the groups 
of buildings of the Brigham Young University. 

March 1 90 1, Dr. Maeser passed away. One year later, Supt. J. M. Tanner 
met with a committee called for the purpose of considering a suitable memorial. This 
committee called a reunion of all Dr. Maeser's old students, and an assembly, the like of 
which was unknown in the history of the Brigham Young Academy, met in Provo, to enjoy 
the festivities of commencement week. A large number of Dr. Maeser's students attended the 
Alumni Association, at which session a motion was made and carried: "That a proper monu- 
ment or memorial building be erected to the memory of the late Dr. Karl G. Maeser, and that a 
committee of fifteen be elected by the association for the purpose of considering the character of 
the monument or memorial building, and that the committee report their findings and sugges- 
tions to the association at a future meeting." 

When the committee met it agreed that a building was the most desirable form of memorial, 
but it found itself confronted with two difficulties. First, the institution possessed no suitable 
land site for the erection of such a building: secondly, it was believed that the most strenuous 
effort on the part of the association could result only in the collection of a sum of money far too 
modest to satisfy the fancy in this matter. For these reasons the plan was abandoned until 
such time as its realization should seem feasible. 

Meanwhile the institution had secured a tract of some forty-five acres on Temple Hill. No 
more beautiful location for a college can be found in the confines of this fair State. To the east, 
in all their majesty, rise those mountains that challenge the attention of all who behold them. 

Below stretches the Garden City, and in the distance shimmers the silvery waters of Utah Lake. 

Before the Alomni meeting of 1907 the call for action coold be heard on every hand. The 
exercises of that reunion reinforced this feeling. Senator George Sutherland, in words fit and 
full of feeling, paid high tribute to the character of his beloved teacher, who, he said,had imbued 
him with the loftiest and noblest ideals of his life. President Brimhall said: "Once as I stood 
talking with Brother Maeser in front of the high school building, he fastened his eyes upon it and 
said:" 'The old man taught in a cabin, but his boys have built a palace and occupy it.'" Then 
said President Brimhall, "it is meet that the children build the memorial to the father, and not 
fitting that they leave it for the grandchildren to do." There were others who called to mind Dr. 
Maeser's parting address as principal of the Brigham Young Academy, when in tones betraying 
the deepest feeling, he said: "Of the words of the English language the hardest to say is farewell; 
this you, my dear fellow teachers, and you, my dear students, will not require of me." 

Stirred to the depths were the souls of those who surrounded the banquet table. That 
loved name had wrought like magic, and the immediate erection of a building was agreed upon. 
A committee was chosen to further the project, and in due season the best architects of the State 
were at work on the plans. 

The campus was carefully gone over, to the end of selecting the most propitious site for the 
building. The place agreed upon did not chance to be the property of the school. This matter 
was made known to the students, who immediately entered into an agreement to sacrifice one 
dollar of their spending money and thus purchase the point. In less than one hour's time one 
thousand dollars, the price of the property, was raised. Prior to this event the beautiful plan 
submitted by Ware & Treganza had been accepted. 

On the anniversary of Dr. Maeser's birthday, January 16, 1908, the board, faculty, and stud- 
ent body, accompanied by members of the Alumni Association, and many of their friends march- 
ed to Temple Hill, where, with renewed and hopeful hearts, they took part in the dedicatory 


Renewed impetus was given the movement at the Alumni banquet of 1908. During the 
year numerous meetings were held for the purpose of raising subscriptions. 

Very soon the committee saw its way clear to let the contract for the foundation, so that at 
the Alumni reunion of 1909, President Heber Jex's report embraced the fact, that the founda- 
tion had been put in at a cost of $10,000. He further stated that while this did not quite exhaust 
the amount at the disposal of the committee, yet if the building should continue in its course of 
erection, funds must be raised for the superstructure. 

Truly wonderful was the response that followed. The new subscription list was headed by 


L. Holbrook with a $6000 donation. Uncle Jesse renewed his gift to $15,000 and four other 
persons raised subscriptions of $2000 to $5000. There came numerous donations of $1000, $500, 
$200, $100, $50, $25, and $20. The total reached $53,000. At the Founder's day banquet 
of 1909 this subscription was increased to $60,000. 

The suggestion made to the students, at holiday time, that they make a small Christmas 
gift to the Maeser Memorial, spread like a contagion. Two hours were consumed in recording 
these student gifts, ranging from $1.00 to $50.00, until a total of $3,800 was reached. The fac- 
ulty increased its subscription about $5,000. At present the total subscription has reached 
about $82,000. The building when completed will cost $1 10,000, and will be one of the best and 
most beautiful educational buildings of its size, to be found in the western region. 



Contribution to the Maeser Memorial 

AFTER the wonderful donation of the Alomni association toward the Maeser Memorial, it 
was found that more money must be forthcoming, so the faculty added to the fund 
about $10,000. It was decided to give the student body an invitation to contribute any 
amount it felt like. As it was about Christmas time they felt it would be in accordance with 
the Christmas spirit. 

Mr Rose, president of the Student Body, made a motion to the effect that the students' 
pledge themselves for $1000. This was seconded and contributions soon began. It was soon 
evident from the spirit that the thousand mark was safe. 

The spirit of giving was so evident that contributions far exceeded all expectations, amount- 
ing to about $4000 donated by about six hundred students. The amounts varied from one to 
twenty-five dollars. 

From a student body famous for its spirit this is not a surprise, but it is worthy of our com-

The Passing of the Seniors 


Pres. Brimhall. — The purpose of this meeting is to consider our Seniors and to pass on their 
respective qualifications as candidates for graduation. We shall judge them according to this 
classification: (a) loyalty to school, (b) loyalty to their work, (c) loyalty to the Faculty, and (d) 
loyalty to their country. 

We'll have the candidates enter one by one, and have each man state his cause. 

(Enter Henry Rose.) 

Mr. Rose you will please state your qualifications for graduation. 

Mr. Rose. — To be frank with you I consider it a preponderous absurdity, a monstrous un- 
scrupuluosity to be thus called before this august assembly to give an account of my illustrious 
career. Don't you know that this school has grown up with me? Need I mention the honors 
I've won? 

"I could not stir 
But like a comet I was wondered at; 
That men would tell their children 
'This is he'." 

Don't you remember the disastrous calamities that accrued when I had the direful misfor- 
tune of breaking my leg and arm? In brief, I am first and foremost, now and forever, an honor 

Prof. Osmond. — "Well, 'tis no matter; honor pricks me on. Yea, but how if honor 
prick me off when I come on? how then? can honor set to a leg? no; or an arm? no; or take 
away the grief of a wound? no. Honor has no skill in surgery then? no. What is honor? a 
word. What is that word honor? air. A trim reckoning. Who hath it? He that died on 
Wednesday. Doth he feel it? no. Doth he hear it? no. Is it insensible then? yea, to the dead. 
But will it not live with the living? no. Why? detraction will not suffer it. Therefore I'll none 
of it. Honor is a mere scutcheon; and so ends my catechism." 


Pres. Brimhall. — Well, Prof. Osmond, We'll not question his honor, but we will judge him 
on his merits. 

Prof. Barker. — Now, that seems fair enough. 

Pro. Kirkham. — Pres. Brimhall, let me make a suggestion. 

Pres. Brimhall — Mr. Rose, you are now excused. (Exit Rose.) We will ask Mr. Rose's 
major professor to report. 

Prof. Swensen. — Mr. — ah — Rose hasn't a good grasp of details, doesn't focus his thoughts 
— eh — but he has a fair understanding of generalities. Howevah, on the whole his intentions 
— ah — are good and — I — should — recommend that — he — ah be graduated. 

Dean Peterson. — We can't graduate these men on generalities and good intentions. 

Prof. Nelson. — (After a two-minute pause.) Now really, I've forgotten what I was going 
to say. Nevertheless, I was struck with the forcibleness of Mr. Rose's words, he drives 'em 
right home and he don't hoot. 

Prof. Osmond.- — Ain't 'doesn't' the right verb. 

Pres. Brimhall. — You gentlemen fight that question out by yourselves. We must proceed 
with our business. 

Prof. Barker — Now, that seems fair enough. 

Prof. Kirkham. — President Brimhall, let me make a suggestion. 

Pres. Brimhall.— Bring in the next candidate. 

(Enter Elmer Miller.) 

Mr. Miller what have you to say for yourself? 

Mr. Miller. — Pres. Brimhall, in view of the fact I have managed to exist in that Biology lab 
all winter, and in view of the fact I have been out trapping animals with Dr. Chamberlin, and 
have taken charge of the lab while the Doctor has played basket ball, and in view of the fact 
that my thesis contains ninety-seven words more than is required, I think there should be no 
question about my graduation. 

Miss Reynolds. — Pres. Brimhall, I wish to say a few words for Mr. Miller. Now Elmer has 
been in my English classes and I know he is a mighty fine fellow. I coached him privately for 
the debate and you know with what honors he won it. I recommend that we pass Elmer up 
without further question. 

Prof. Kirkham. — Pres. Brimhall, let me make a suggestion. Why not refer it to his major 

Prof. Barker. — Now that seems fair enough. 


Pres. Brimhall. — Where is Dr. Chamberlin? 

Several voices (in concert) — He's playing basket ball in the gym. 

Pres. Brimhall. — Excuse him. Brother Holt. He's preparing for the Lehi game. 

Miss Reynolds. — Well, Pres. Brimhall, Elmer is a nice young man just starting out in life 
and we ought not to discourage the dear boy. Elmer's case is different from the rest of them. 
He'll be a credit to the institution. 

Prof. Osmond. — "To be or not to be, — that is the question; 

Whether 'tis nobler in the mind" — 

(exit Mr. Miller.) 

Pres. Brimhall. — Call in the next, 

(Enter Irvin Jacobs.) 

Now Mr. Jacobs what have you to say for yourself? 

Jacobs. — No th - ing, thank you. 

Prof. Osmond. — I move we have that speech put down in writing. 

Prof. Lund. — That reminds me of a story. 

"Two colored men, who were very much frightened, took refuge under a tree in a violent 
thunder shower; 

"Julius, can you pray?" said one. 

"No, Sam," was the reply. "Nebber prayed in my life." 

"Well, can't you sing a hymn?" 

"No, Sam^ can't sing nothin." 

"Well, see heah, honey, samfin' 'ligious's got to be done heah mighty sudden. S'pose you 
pass round the contribution box?" 

Pres. Brimhall. — We have always found Mr. Jacobs a man of few words but of great deeds. 
In his line, we need men of action not of words. 

Prof. Barker. — Now that seems fair enough. 

Prof. Maw. — If Jacobs understands the thesis he has written he ought to be graduated, for 
I confess that the formulae are even beyond me. 

Pres. Brimhall. — Very well. Next. 

(Enter Martin Larsen.) 

Mr. Larsen we are now prepared to hear your case. 

Mr. Larsen. — I can't see why my individual, inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pur- 


suit of happiness, should be thus encroached upon. It is unconstitutional! In a democratic 
institution such as this is, a student should be allowed to graduate or not as he pleases. The 
Faculty has no business to say anything about it, because in this age of social and politieal cor- 
ruption, they cannot pass on a question with unbiased minds. 

The giving of a sheep skin is merely a tradition of society, and in no way represents a man's 
attainments. It makes absolutely no difference to me whether you give me my degree or not. 

Prof. Kirkham. — Now, Mr. Larsen, let me make a suggestion. 

Mr. Larsen. — In this age of corruption there is absolutely no such thing as justice. Money 
rules the world. The poorer class has no chance in the courts. I believe in absolute freedom. 
I'm opposed to prohibition, and I believe in woman's suffrage, providing she isn't allowed to 
vote or to hold office, 

Pres. Brimhall. — (patting Mr. Larsen on the back) Well, well, Mr. Larsen, we'll consider 
your case. 

Prof. Barker. — Now that seems fair enough. 

(exit Mr. Larsen.) 

Pres. Brimhal . — Brother Snow couldn't be here to-day, and therefore cannot speak for 
himself. However, I think that there is no question about Brother Snow's ability. 

Pres. Keeler. — Brother Snow has a family to keep, and he has been going to school a long 
time, and has been doing some teaching. Therefore, I think he should have his drgeee. 

Prof. Barker. — Now that seems fair enough. 

Pres. Brimhall. — I am sure that that is the sentiment of the Faculty. We will now hear 
from Mr. Williams. 

(Enter Williams.) 


Mr. Williams. — Pres. Brimhall, I should like to know the purpose of all this. 

Pres. Brimhall. — The purpose, Mr. Williams, is that you may have the opportunity of 
giving evidence why you should be graduated. 

Mr. Williams. — I've been here for several years; I've never failed in a subject; never been 
conditioned; never been called in the office; have never failed to go on the Y; have never had 
my hair cut; and I think psychologically, pedagogically, biologically, and theologically it is un- 
fair for you to question my ability. Logically, its up to you to show why I shouldn't graduate. 

Prof. Barker. — Now that seems fair enough. 

Prof. Kirkham. — Pres. Brimhall, let me make a —

The "Automatic Life" 

X-PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT wrote of the "Strenuous Life" and at 
once a multitude of sympathizers made their appearance. Others 
have suggested the "Simple Life," and thousands proceeded to strenu- 
ously adopt the "Simple Life". We wish to call attention to another 
life which is vastly different from that suggested by either the 
strenuous or the simpletons? and its champions have not waited even 
for the pubhcation of this discussion before adopting it. For the lack 
of a better name we call it the "Automatic Life. "To illustrate what 
is meant by this name, we call attention to a few points with which 
we are all more or less familiar. If we wind up the phonograph, the 
song sings itself, or the selection plays itself. If we connect an 
electric motor with the washing machine, the washing does itself. If we turn the current 
into the electric iron, the iron proceeds to heat itself. And we have all heard of the piano 
which plays itself. 

An application of the "Automatic Life" will give a solution of most of the difficult problems 
which confront the human race to-day. Consider, for instance, the important question of prohi- 
bition. By the workings of the "Automatic Life," this question solves its self. Upon investiga- 
tion, we will find that considerable liquor is constantly being shipped into Provo City. If we 
visit the old saloon stands and ask for liquor, we are informed that no liquor is being sold. Should 
we ask a man who appears to be under the influence of liquor where he obtained his "booze," he 
would no doubt inform us that he has had no "booze." Since liquor is constantly being shipped 
into Provo and no one is drinking it, we come to the only rational conclusion that liquor, upon 
entering the city, at once adopts the "Automatic Life" and drinks its self. And similarly tobacco 
will chew it self and pipes will smoke themselves. (The latter has often happened with the stove 

Consider also the controversy which has raged ITSELF concerning the discovery of the 
North Pole. All this discussion about observations, calculations, gum-drops, etc., is of no interest 
whatever in the face of the fact that the North Pole discovered himself. Dr. Cook realizes this 


now, but Com. Peary is still at sea. The South Pole has no doubt discovered herself, but she 
refrains from making a public announcement of the fact because of the sad experience of her 
neighbor on the North. 

Again — why all this worrying, debating, and arguing about evolution? It is a waste of 
time and energy. God is surely not the author of all this discord. Why not place the credit 
where it belongs and admit that man created himself? What a load is lifted from our shoulders 
when the responsibility of defending both Adam and the Ape is removed! We will some day 
condemn ourselves for our lack of appreciation of the glorious inspiration which comes to us thru 
the immortal phrase "The self-made man." 

And speaking of inspiration, what a load of it must have come to the committee on lectures 
and socials of the B. Y. University when they so ordered things as to permit the girls to take 
THEMSELVES to the parties. 

We need not worry OURSELVES about good spellers, poor spellers, abominable spellers or 
even the now notorious ornnibus spellers. Before long someone will call our attention to the fact 
that in the shorthand phonetic systems of writing, words all SPELL THEMSELVES. 

Not long ago the president of the University announced the "last call for breakfast" and 
students at once began expelling themselves. 

If we could realize even a fractional part of the wonders of this new life, we would feel like 
yelling ourselves. Think for instance of lessons getting them-selves, — of Christian Science cur- 
ing itself, of food chewing itself 147 times. Think of girls kissing themselves, and of boys kick- 
ing themselves. Think of a good joke running up and down the street cracking itself to every- 
body it met. And finally, notice the fact that this story has TOLD ITSELF.

Somebody *s Dream 

I had a bad dream in my sleep last night: 
There were questioning Imps around my bed; 
They polled my ears, and tweaked my nose, 
Played in my hair, and danced on my head. 

These Questioning Imps flew about in the air 
And laughed and danced in fiendish delight; 
"We have questions," said they, "a hundred 

or more. 
We want no guessing, so answer us right. 

"We have heard a great deal about the 'flood,' 
The confusion of tongues and the Tower of 

Of the story of the Serpent, and Adam and Eve, 
But is it not really a myth or a fable? 

"Now what do you say about 'the first flesh 

of the earth?' 
And we 'challenge' you to answer us if you can. 
How you' I reconcile religion and Darwin's 

Regarding the origin and evolution of man?" 

Now these Questioning Imps sat bolt up- 
And looked at me straight to see what 

I'd do; 
But to all their questions I answered them 

"It's false because it's false, and it's true 
because it's true." 

But they cried long and loud and shook their 

Until they heard the voice of the 'liberal 
^ few,' 
"Don't you see we must answer in knowledge 

and reason. 
It is time that we're taking the modern view." 

I awoke with a start and rubbed my eyes, 
How dark and chilly the room did seem; 
But there's one question yet that sticks in my 

"Were those Questioning Imps really only a

"They pulled my ears, and tweaked my nose.

The Banyan Staff Charged With Scandal 

HE strange conduct on the part of certain geniuses of the Banyan staff and their 
accomplices aroused first the curiosity and later the suspicion of several promi- 
nent faculty members. Nothing short of the most extraordinary abnormalities 
of conduct in these Junior gentlemen would have attracted special attention, but 
when nervy photographers, inquisitive detectives, and professional cartoonists 
shadowed the aforesaid professors for days at a time and later were caught in the 
act of delivering their grotesque and libelous creation to the Banyan bunch, it 
was feared that surprises were in store for somebody. The investigation which followed resulted 
in some interesting discoveries. Never in college history has there been a parallel case o f bold 
and presumptuous effrontery. The manner in which weaknesses, faults and peculiarities have 
been exaggerated would rival the testimony of a mother-in-law in a divorce case. From the 
great number of victims it would seem as if every conscientious Professor who, during the last 
ten years, has dared mark a member of this gang below D has been stung. 

The desperate part of it all is that the infamous volume was on the press and half printed at 
the time that its scandalous nature came to light. Just what final disposition will be made of 
the case cannot be predicted at present, but some interesting developments are expected. 

—White and Blue. 


A Few Characteristics 

Who is it in this world of sin, 
Always with a superior grin. 
Jumps on a man and then rubs it in? 
The Banyan. 

Who when yoo take his history 
Makes your life a misery 
Because his work is mystery.? 

Who unlike some the faculty 
Thinks we should know infinity 
And cannot make exams easy? 
Prof. Snow. 

Who when you can't tell why, 
A equals X plus minus Y, 
Rages, and says "why don't you try?" 

Who flunks Trainers with so fierce a face. 
And tells them they are in disgrace. 
Till they would like to run a race? 
Miss Binzel. 

Who delights to talk psychology 
And modern thoughts on theology. 
And the point of view in biology? 
Dr. Peterson. 

Who is it likes to see you flunk 
So he can tell you that you're punk, 
And can't forget that stocks have sunk? 

Who when the chorus girl so meek 
Forgets her lines and cannot speak. 
Keeps swearing almost all the week? 
Prof. Lund. 

Who says his dope is extra fine 
From Germany down by the Rhine, 
And kills you ten times out of nine? 
Dr. Hinckley. 

Who when you don't know all men who, 
Were killed in the fight at Waterloo, 
Has not a bit of use for you? 
Prof. Jenson. 

Who is it sleeps o'er book and plan. 
And in his class is the easy man. 
But on evolution puts a ban? 

Who is it teaches the same old way. 
That she has taught for many a day. 
And has the self same words to say? 
Miss Reynolds.

Practical, Industrial Education has come to stay. It will be the dominant form of education in 
the twentieth century. Whoever wishes to progress will have to master in a scientific yet practical way 
the secrets of his chosen profession. 

The U. A. C. meets very squarely the requirements of the times by offering thorough elementary 
and advanced instruction, leading ultimately to the degree of Bachelor of Science, in Agronomy, En- 
tomology, Horticulture, Irrigation and Drainage, Agricultural Chemistry, Animal Husbandry and Dairy- 
ing, Home Economics, Commerce, and General Science. Short, special courses are offered in each of 
the above, and in Mechanic Arts. 

Our alumni and other graduates are uniformly successful.

Some evils new to shun.

Supply Store 

ABOUT four years ago a strong sentiment 
was created among the students in favor of send- 
ing directly to the publishing and school supply 
houses for their books and other school supplies, 
thus getting them at minimum or reasonable 

To accomplish this object the students' Supply 
Association was organized as a department of 
the university, and began business Nov. 5, 1908. 

The association has a board of directors con- 
sisting of five persons, -three from the faculty 
and two from the student body. They meet 
once a month, receive reports from the business 
manager, and transact general business. 

Berry Maycock was appointed first manager 
and still holds that position. Berry is a man of 
business ability and he has managed the business 
very successfully. His winning ways have made 
him a favorite among the students especially 
the girls. 

The store has moved once to larger quarters 
and expects to have a larger sales room next year. 

Much good has been derived by the establish- 
ment of this store. It has accomplished its pur- 
pose by enabling the students to get their school 
supplies at minimum prices, and its location in 
the university has made it very convenient for 
students and teachers to place their orders and 
make purchases. 

Here and There 

It is reported that just after Provo "went dry," a 
certain professor got the following notice from the ex- 
press office; 

"Please come and get your "books" as soon as pos- 
sible. They're running all over the floor. 

Some students remind one of the Irishman who said 
he'd found the job he'd been looking for all his life and 
when asked what it was, replied: "Lineman lor a wire- 
less telegraph company." 

Will some one kindly tell me why, 
That to men single, girls are shy; 
But when in wedlock I am bound, 
A million maidens linger 'round. 
All going nutty to spoon with me. 
"I love my wife," you "twenty-three." 

Berry Maycock. 


Prof. Anderlin has decided to let out no books to 
"book-keepers" too many are being missed. 

It is rumored that some of the drug stores are taking 
to the peculiar business of selling birds. Their spec- 
ialty is the "Swallow." 

Imagine my surprise when, upon suddenly entering 
the White and Blue office, I heard Carroll pleading with 
Central, "please, give me a ring."

Out by the sea a sweet child stood 
And watched the breaker's rise and swell, 
Re-echoing soft on the shore 
O'erleap the golden sands, its pour; 

There came a something, whisp'ring strange 
From o'er its great and solemn depths; 
She knew not why it calmed her soul. 
Nor why she listened long and wept. 

— Roy Gardener. 


Is It? 

Is it anybody's business 

If a gentleman should choose 
To wait upon Miss. Walker, 

If Miss. "Walker don't refuse? 
Or to speak a little plainer, 

That my meaning you may know. 
Is it anybody's business 

If Hattie has 4. beau? 

Is it anybody'fj business 

Who calls wpon Hermese, 
And when he leaves Miss. Petersen, 

And how and why he leaves? 
Or is it necessary 

For a reporter to be sent 
To save from further trouble, 

The envious element? 

Is it anybody's business. 

But Miss Roberts, if her beau 
Goes out with other ladies, 
' ' And doesn't let her know? 
Is it anybody's business. 

But Homer's and her's, if she 
Should have another escort 
Where he doesn't chance to bei" 

Is it anybody's business 

If Miss. Schofield likes a boy. 

Whose name I dare not mention 
For fear I might annoy? 

Or if you see a person 

On the street with Nellie fair. 

Is it anybody's business 

What his business may be there? 

Is it anybody's business 

If Bessie stays at home 
From college club and parties. 

And upon the hill doth roam? 
Is it anybody's business 

If you see her with a man. 
Is it anybody's business 

If they even have a plan? 

Is it anybody's business 

If the Banyan tell the truth 
Of these dear girls whose spirit 

Shows they are still in youth? 
Is it anybody's business 

If the Banyan tell a lie; 
Though it hurts you, you must take it- 

There's no use to swear or cry. 


Just for Fun: 

"I cannot imagine," said 'Squire B., "why my 
whiskers should turn gray so much sooner than the 
hair of my head." 

"Because," observed a wag, "you have worked so 
much more with your jaws than your brains."

"Unless you give me aid," said a beggar to a benevo- 
lent lady, "I am afraid I shall have to resort to some- 
thing which I greatly dislike to do." 

The lady handed him a dollar, and compassionately 
asked: "What is it poor man, that I have saved you 

"Work," was the wonderful answer. 

"Patrick," said the priest, "how much hay did you 

"Well, I may as well confess to your reverence for 
the whole stack, for I am going after the rest to-night." 

"Prisoner, why did you follow this man and beat and 
kick him so shamefully?" 

"I am sorry, your honor — I was a little drunk, and 
I thought it was my wife." — Ex. 

Farmer. — Them perfessors is a mighty fine lot, I 
kin tell ye. They ain't at all stuck up, and they help 
build up the country. About half of 'em are farmers, 
some of 'em raise fruit, some are buildin' irrigation 
ditches, and the others are on the mining exchange.
