Third President of Betnany College 

A man of stalwart frame, Vigor- 
ous intellect and sensitive spirit; 
a Christian of robust faith, spot- 
less character and World-Wide 
fellowship; an inspiring preacher, 
a stimulating teacher, a trusted 
administrator. His early death 
blighted many hopes, but his 
far-sighted Vision and aggressive 
action had already fore- 
shadowed the greater 
Bethany of 


Tl J ITHIN this book lies a theme 
** that is local in color, sym- 
bolical of all that is beautiful in the 
life of eVer$ Bethany student. May 
We look upon the task of those who 
have gone before us as a real ac- 
complishment and eVer keep sacred 
the traditions which are ours, and 
which remind us of the many chal- 
lenges of the future. 

If this book can recall memo- 
ries which will renew a loVe and de- 
votion to our Alma Mater for her 
invaluable gifts to us, We haVe suc- 
ceeded. Then We seek no praise, 
We desire no commendation — We 
haVe only accomplished that which 
We set out to do, and the 
joy of service is 













Alma Mater 

All hail to thee, hail to thee, bright Alma Mater! 
Our heart's true affections twine closely to thee; 
How dear to our hearts are the scenes of old Bethany, 
Cod speed Alma Mater and Old Bethany. 

We'll honor and crown thee, O bright Alma Mater, 
For thou art the regent of our destiny; 
We'll bring thee the gems and the treasures of memory. 
Cod speed Alma Mater and Old Bethany. 

High up on the scroll of honor and fame, 
Thy sons, strong and manly, have written thy name; 
But now we must leave thee, with hearts overflowing; 
Farewell, Alma Mater and Old Bethany. 

We'll honor and crown thee, O bright Alma Mater, 
For thou art the regent of our destiny; 
We'll bring thee the gems and the treasures of memory. 
Cod speed Alma Mater and Old Bethany. 

i4 The grates of memory 
Are ever open wide."

Presidents Message 

v --j-^r IS WITH PLEASURE that I extend the greeting of the 
administration of Bethany College to the friends and readers 
^-■H— ^ of the Bethanian for 1927. For a number of years the 
"annual" has been a creditable publication, and we feel sure that the cur- 
rent number maintains the standards and traditions of its predecessors. 

Bethany College has been known for its beautiful environs, the 
architecture of its main buildings, and the general attractiveness of its 
campus. These items afford fine material for the view section of the 
Bethanian as it seeks to portray Bethany as a college well located 
and equipped. 

In these days many things are being written concerning colleges and 
a college education ; suffice it to say that, regardless of criticism, the col- 
lege graduate continues to take the usual place in the public life of the 
times. More than ever the professional man is coming to his specialized 
training with a college background. The great corporations of our day 
are asking for the college-trained young man who can be put in depart- 
ments that will ultimately lead to administrative responsibilities. 

Basic in all of the above is the fact that the greatest contribution of 
a college education is still to be found in the good that it does one's own 
soul. To these items Bethany College stands committed.

[ODERN philosophy of education holds that the object of the 
school must be more than learning; it must be the building up 
of the whole intellectual, aesthetic and physical life. The 
school and college must be more than a mere giver of information ; it 
must be a builder of character, a maker of men and women. Educators 
today realize that the college must save young men and young women 
from narrowness and pettiness and bring them out into a larger world 
of vision and service; that only then will it justify the title of "Alma 
Mater," the fostering mother of men and women. 

As a result of this new vision extra-curricular activities have taken 
a real place in our college life. It is possible to say that their right to ex- 
istence antedates formal education and finds its birth certificate in human 
life needs of young men and young women. 

Here at Bethany we have supported organizations of various types 
through many years. They have served the students well, and they have 
served the college well. These organizations have been like mirrors 
to students in reflecting the problems and the opportunities, the joys and 
the sorrows, the virtues and the evils of life as it must be met when 
college days are over. 

Bethany's student organizations are under the direction and super- 
vision of the Student Board of Governors, and they are being used to 
give the broader social, vocational, civic, physical, moral and avocational 
training so essential for a successful, well-rounded modern life. 

The Student Board of Governors 

Founded in 1926 

The Student Board of Governors "was created by the student body to replace the Student 
Council which had ceased to function in an efficient manner. The organization was carefully 
planned and executed and there is no question but that the Student Board of Governors built a 
firm foundation for itself. All this, it has strengthened by a year's active program in the super- 
vision and control of "student life, student welfare, and student activities." 

The Board has been earnest and persistent in its efforts to contribute in every way possible 
to a fuller and richer student life and to promote the best interests of the college.

The Current History Club 

Founded in 1922 

S, ever and anon, the student mind is impinged by some spectacular happening 
in the world's affairs and he realizes his imperfect understanding of unfold- 
ing events in national or international currents, there arises a desire for 
reliable interpretation. Such was the reason for the formation of the Current History 
Club in 1922. To those students who demanded it, and to those members of the fac- 
ulty who welcomed it, this club has been a valued forum for the pooling of information 
and viewpoints. 

The club is unique in its organization. It has none. There are no officers, no 
committees, no dues or fees. Its energies, so its founders believed, should be expended 
on things, not on personal preferments. And its corresponding policy is its deliberate 
democracy. Meetings are characterized by a lack of form; interest in affairs whose 
import is larger than any one campus admits a student, and by the same token he may 
have the floor. 

During the present year the range of subjects has spread over a considerably wider 
territory than ever before. From the five-day week for laborers to the results of prize 
offers in literature; from the Nicaraguan policy of the United States to riots in China 
and the coal strike in England, inquisitive minds have followed the march of events. 
The most attractive subject was "Who Run the Colleges," a discussion of the proper 
influence on college administration of trustees, president, faculty, and students, with 
which was coupled an attack on, and defense of, fraternities. 

A distinctive, creative impression on student thinking and attitudes is a result of the 
meetings of this club, for by the simplicity and sincerity of discussion, the timeliness of 
the subjects, and the home-like surroundings of the parlors of Phillips Hall, scenes are 
created which will not soon fade from the college record nor from the students' 

A History of the Literary Societies 

^^^x>HE NEED of some type of literary organization was felt as soon as Bethany 
/ Cj College was opened in 1 841. So November 5, 1841, the Neotrophian Lit- 
^^^^X erary Society was organized, having an enrollment of thirty-one members at 
the first session. The society was incorporated by the state of Virginia, March 16, 1849. 

On November 10, 1841, a group of fourteen young men discussed the possibility 
of forming a second society. And so the second organization at Bethany was founded. 
At first it was called the Bethany Institute, but soon the name was changed to the 
American Literary Institute, or A. L. I. 

In 1 85 1 the two literary societies jointly edited a college paper, The Stylus. 
After this publication had passed out of existence, another was published. This paper. 
The Guardian, a bi-monthly school paper, was started in 1869, and was carried on 
until the Collegian, the present college paper, was started. The Guardian, although 
on the order of a newspaper, was edited essentially for literary purposes. An inter- 
esting serial on "The History of Bethany College" ran in the paper. 

In 1852 a third society was formed. The purpose of this organization, called 
the Adelphian, was "to promote and carry out the purposes contemplated in the de- 
partment of Bible literature." 

The next mention that we find of literary efforts at Bethany was the organization 
of a girls' society, the Ossolian, in 1890. It was impossible to find just when this 
society ceased functioning, but by 1905 it had entirely disappeared. By that time 
girls were admitted to the other literary organizations. Adelphian was the first to 
open its doors to the ladies. 

In the 1908 catalogue the statement was made that all students must be a member 
of some literary society, and must take part at least twice a term. By 1916 the students 
were urged to become members of the societies. 

Ossolian reappeared for a short time during the year 1912-1913. In 1916 a 
society for preparatory students, the Campbell, was organized. In 191 7-18 the Kar- 
terian was started and functioned for about a year. 

During the period of 1917-23, A. L. I. also did not function. Again in 1923 both 
societies passed from existence and have not since been unearthed. 

It is one of the few tragedies of Bethany that literary work should so deteriorate. 
The students of today are interested in other lines, and other activities take the place 
of the old societies. But some day, and we hope it is soon, the literary societies of 
Bethany College will again be active organizations.

The Forensic Association was organized in April, 1923. Only 
men and women participating in debate or oratory may become mem- 
bers. At the annual convention, the topic for debate decided upon was, 
"Resolved, that the United States should cancel the debts owing to it 
by the allied nations." 

This year the association is sponsoring an oratorical contest to be 
held in May. The winner of this contest will be awarded a gold medal. 
It is hoped that such a contest will further greater interest in the college 
in forensics. 



With the best schedule in several years, it appears that debating in Bethanv will experience 
a most interesting and successful season. Contests have 1 already been arranged with Waynesburg, 
Geneva, Westminster, and Johns Hopkins, and other schools may be added before the close of 
the year. 

The teams are being coached by Professor Bennett, who is an old debater himself. From 
the comparatively large number of candidates, Mr. Bennett selected Herman Patton, Dwight 
Stevenson and Virgil Elliot to represent the negative; and John Berry, Ward Stalnaker and 
Ellsworth Richardson the affirmative. Patton, Stevenson and Berry have debated for Bethanv 
before, and are the mainstays of the teams this year. Elliot and Richardson are debating for their 
first time, but are making good. Stalnaker has had previous experience, but is new in Bethany 

The chief topic for debate is one being widely discussed by colleges throughout the United 
States, namely, "Resolved, that the United States should cancel the debts owing to it bv the 
allied nations." With Johns Hopkins, the question is, "Resolved, that the United States should 
adopt a uniform marriage and divorce law through national legislation."

The 1927 Home Coming Comrrnttee 

Annually the students and faculty of our college have united their efforts in pro- 
ducing a stage revue during our midwinter home coming season, which is an attempt 
to portray the all-round versatility and individualism that is Bethany's. Year by 
year we have been approaching nearer and nearer a production that is strictly 
Bethanian in color, and we believe the '27 show to be the very finest attempt of all.

"And ne'er did Grecian chisel trace 
A Nymph, a Naiad, or a Grace 
Of finer form or lovelier face." 

After all, just who shall we say is beautiful, or whom shall we designate as the 
most beautiful? For " 'Tis not a lip, or eye, we beauty call, but the joint force, and 
full results of all." 

Since it is our purpose to depict for you all that is beautiful in Bethany, we must 
pay homage to the beautiful. We were unable to make our selections alone, so we 
asked Miss Antoinette Donnelly to help us. We have made our selection, and if you 
think that they truly represent Bethany beauty, we shall be happy. If you do not, 
we can console ourselves with the fact that we loved you all, but space would not 
permit the presentation of all.

" 'Twas blow for blow, disputing inch 
by inch, for one would not retreat, 
nor t'other flinch." 



C. V. Elder 

gjt On the first day oi Sepl mber, [927, some thirty aspiring 

candidates for the varsity football squad assembled in Bethany 
and began preparations for the coming season, under the able 
and ever careful guidance of Coach Nuss and Manager "Red" 

Faced with the difficult problem of replacing such stars as 
Loppacker, Barlowe, Rhine, Rice Serafini, and with a nine-game 
schedule containing anything but easy games, Coach Nuss en- 
countered a rather severe job. However, Coach grimly set him- 
self at the hard task of building a machine to withstand the test 
of the season. In spite of his hard work, our varsity did not 
seem to hit its stride until the latter part of the season, when he 
managed to get the machine organized, and it finished with a 
rush, winning two of the last three games, and playing the cham- 
pionship Geneva team to a standstill for three quarters. Those 
Graduate Mqr. of Athletics last three games were a fitting tribute to the ''never say die" 

spirit of our coach. 
The season opened on October 2 with West Virginia Weslevan at Buckhannon, and the 

Green met with defeat, 19 to 7, after having secured a 7 to o lead in the first quarter. Then 

Westminster invaded Bethany to return with a 7 to 7 tie in our first Conference game. The 

Green lost its second game in three starts at Erie, Pa., when Allegheny College was returned 

the victor, 14 to 7, after a gruelling struggle. 

Salem College completely upset predictions by trouncing our varsity 20 to o at Wellsburg, 

in the next game. On the following Friday, October 29, Duquesne and Bethany fought four 

quarters to a o to c tie on the Bluff in Pittsburg. Our old rival, W. and J., was more successful 

this year than in several past, turning our varsity back at 

Washington, Pa., 26 to o. The following Saturday the Bisons 

turned in their first victory by defeating Thiel College 10 to o. 

A touchdown by Neel and the resultant goal by Fiers and a 

beautiful drop kick from the toe of Kinsey accounted for the 


A varsity with a renewed spirit soundly trounced Waynes- 
burg on the following Saturday by the score of 7 to o. Our 

last game resulted in a 20 to o defeat at the hands of Geneva, 

the conquerors of Harvard. 

From the standpoint of games won, our 1927 football season 

can hardly be considered a success, but still we can not consider 

it a failure, for the reason that we placed second in the Tri-State 

Conference standing, with a record of two won, two tied, and 

only one game lost. Another successful angle of the season was 

that it served to uncover several promising new men in the per- 
sons of Fiers at fullback, Baker, Roe, Hagberg, Gilgan, Burwell, 

Bates, Imel, Keating and Stewart. W. O. MacLeax, Manager

Football Review 

On the very stormy, muddy afternoon of October 2 the 1926 varsity football season of Bethany 
was inaugurated at Buckhannon, West Virginia. West Virginia Wesleyan and our varsity en- 
gaged in a struggle that, in spite of the elements, was good to look upon. The Bison started 
with a bang by receiving the kickofF and scoring in three plays. Halfback Neel on the third play 
of the game took a twenty-yard pass from Carey and carried it to completion by sprinting sixty 
yards in a beautiful run for a touchdown. Fiers accurately booted the goal, and the Bison led 
7 to o. Shortly after the next kickoff, a had punt placed the ball deep in Bethany territory, and 
Wesleyan succeeded in scoring by recovering a fumble over the goal line. Wesleyan again ob- 
tained possession of the ball deep in Bison territory, due to a fumble, and pushed another touch- 
down across on straight line play. The second half was evenly fought, with Wesleyan scoring 



TINSON, Tackle 
6'-l" Junior '200 pounds 

Bis: John is always to be recognized anywhere on the field because of the height and breadth 
of his frame. Running in the interference on almost every play, he was responsible for many gaps 
in the opposing line, and on the defense he was a tower of strength. 

STOBBS, Halfback 

6' .Junior 170 pounds 

Bobby seldom carried the ball. It was his place to clear the way, and at this he is a master. 
On defense he backs up the line, and its is doubtful if the Tri-5tate district can claim his equal at 
diagnosing plays and breaking them up. 

KIXSEY. Halfback 
5'-7" Senior 153 pounds 

After four years of faithful labor. Earl finally got a chance to show what he could do. and he 
came through wonderfully. Called upon to fill Sfcobbs shoes, he played the position like the master 
he is. His field goal against Thiel cinched the victory that day. The school loses a real football 
player when Earl graduates. 

BRANDON'. Tackle 
6' Junior 179 pounds 

"Big Bad Jim" can always be identified and distinguished because of the size and height of 
his frame. He has proved to be a valuable man to the team when called upon, and he will always 
be remembered as a clean and courageous fighter. 

again on a thirty-yard run after a short forward pass. The game ended shortly after Wes- 
leyan's third score, 19 to 7. 

Before a homecoming crowd and in our first Conference game, our varsity played a 7 to 
7 tie game with Westminster College. The first quarter found Bethany again holding the ad- 
vantage in ground gained, and this period ended with the ball on Westminster's two-yard line. 
Just after the second quarter opened, Fiers, who incidentally gave a very nice exhibition of full- 
back play that afternoon, cut through tackle for a score and completed the play by kicking a per- 
fect goal after touchdown. Westminster, using the very deceptive Carnegie Tech system, opened 
up with a barrage cf forward passes that were not to be denied. A wide pass to Westminster's 
right end resulted in a forty-yard run to a touchdown, and as the goal was successfully kicked, 
a 7 to 7 tie. 

The second half found Bethany gaining ground throughout, but lacking in the final thrust. A 
frantic drive in the last minutes of the fourth quarter fell just inches and seconds short of a 




FIERS, Fullback 
o'-lliA" Sophomore 17o pounds 

Dale relinquished a position at end this year for the task of gamins; yardage through .,: ■ ■ 
lines. He was the heaviest man in the baokfiold. and the hardest to stop with a . lean tackle. When 
Dale hits the line under full steam, something is bound to crack. He has two more years of service. 

GRIFFITH, Guard and Tackle 
G'-'l" Junior 175 pounds 

Griff is our big. steady lineman; quiet, but always in the thick of the fray. During the first half 
of the season he held down the position in the center of the line, and later, when called upon, proved 
his ability as a tackle. All year he was handicapped by a shoulder injury- which would keep many 
men on the bench. 

PRICE, Center 
5'-8M:" sophomore 169 pounds 

Bucky's chief asset is his dependability. The accuracy of his passing is characteristic of all his 
work. Although not heavy as linemen go. he is able to hold his own with the heavy fellows. Alle- 
gheny picked him as the best center opposing them during the season. 

BURWELL, Center 
5'-7" Freshman 1X4 pounds 

This was Fat's first year on the squad, and he came through with a bang. Although constantly 
opposed to larger men, he was never once forced out of a game through injury. Like many of the 
other linemen, he uses the submarine style of getting through the line, and as a result much of his 
fine work is hidden from the stands. 

Bethany victory. The game ended with the ball in Bethany's possession on Westminster's half- 
yard line. 

October 16 found our varsity at Erie, Pa., 'vhere Allegheny College, in the new municipal 
stadium, met and defeated our Bisons 14 to 7. after a heart-breaking struggle. A bad pass from 
center on the first play after the opening kickoff placed the varsity in a decidedly unfortunate 
position. Allegheny's right end picked up this misdirected pass and continued, unmolested, thirty 
>ards to a touchdown. The goal was kicked and our opponents held a 7 to o advantage. Trying 
desperately, the Bisons kept pounding at a much heavier Allegheny line, and in the second quarter 
Fiers, on a delayed pass, placed a pretty spiral in Xeel's arms. Hump completed it by a beauti- 
ful dodging run to score. Fiers sailed the extra point kick squarely between the posts and the 
score stood 7 to 7. The third quarter was evenly fought with neither team scoring, but late in 
the fourth period Allegheny succeeded in scoring again by means of a long forward pass and 

GILGAN, Tackle

Chuck was one of the freshmen on the squad. Although he arrived late and so got off to a 
bad start, he developed quickly and became one of the mainstays of the line. Next year "Gilly

Our varsity suffered a complete let-down against Salem and gave it; worst exhibition of 
football cf the season. Starting the game without the usual snap and scrap of a Bison team, the 
varsity did not find itself throughout the whole afternoon's play. Due credit must be given to 
Salem. They presented a well coached offense combined with a tenacious defense and a perfect 
execution of the huddle system of signals. 

The Seventh Day Adventists succeeded in pushing over a touchdown in each of the first 
two quarters, and one in the third, missing the final goal kick. Only in the closing minutes of

the game did the Bisons show any sign of an offense. During this time three forward passes 
were completed for as many first downs. 

The following Friday afternoon, October 29, on the Bluff Field in Pittsburg, the Green 
was forced to accept a o to o tie with Duquesne in a game that certainly should have resulted 
in a Bethany victory. On no less lhan four occasions did we have the ball in our possession 
inside of Duquesne's two-yard line, only to see something go amiss and have them punt out of 
danger. Velar, negro halfback, featured for Duquesne, and the playing of Hamill, Stobbs, 
Fiers, Neel, and Shives stood out for the Bisons. A very muddy field and a slippery ball greatly 
hindered our open style of attack and prevented our scoring at least once. To quote a sport 
writer of the Pittsburg Gazette Times, "The Bisons were undoubtedly handicapped bv the slip- 
pery condition of the field, and under other conditions would probably have been victorious." 
The game ended o to o in favor of Jupiter Pluvius. 

Against the best W. and J. team in several vears, our much lighter varsity gave a very nice 
exhibition. The Presidents scored one of their four touchdowns on an eightv-vard run from a 
Bethany fumble, after the Bisons had carried the hall deep into W. and f. territory. The 
broken field running of Neel and the playing of Hamill and Fiers, coupled with the defensive 
play of Stobbs until he was injured in the fourth quarter, were the high spots in the Bison plav.

Day, Edwards, Ride and May featured for W. and J. Facing great odds, the Bisons fought with 
dogged determination, but the opposition was just a little too strong to permit any scoring on our 
part, although Fiers and Neel both broke away for runs of between twenty-five and thirty-five 
yards. Next year we are going back again with the ever-present hope of — why say it? It's 
in the heart and blood of every true Bethanian. 

November 13 proved to be a lucky day, in spite of its sinister date, for our varsity was re- 
turned on the correct side of a 10 to o score with our third Conference rival, Thiel. Entering 
the game minus the service of our old standby, Stobbs, the Bisons hit their stride when Hamill 
placed a neat pass in Neel's arms as he stepped over the goal line in the second quarter. Fiers 
maintained his perfect record by kicking the resultant goal. Our other points were the result 
of a beautiful kick of thirty yards by Kinsey late in the second half. A word must be said here 
concerning Earl. His play was faultless throughout the afternoon, in a difficult position that 
spectators rarely appreciate, but one that the coach and the team must depend on for any measure

adison: campaign. 


F. L. NusSj Coach 

From the standpoint of material, the pre-season in- 
dications pointed to a very successful basketball campaign 
at Bethany. Coach Nuss had six varsity letter man and 
several promising new aspirants from which to pick a 
varsity. Two weeks of preliminary training before 
Christmas vacation served to condition the squad of ten 
men that engaged in a barnstorming trip during the last 
week before the opening of school. Five games were 
played on this trip, and three were turned in as victories; 
the two defeats were by close scores. All the games were 
with independent teams with the exception of that with 
Adrian College of Michigan, which administered a de- 
feat in Steubenville, Ohio, by a score of 40 to 23. 

The Saturday following our return from vacation 
saw the Bisons open their home schedule by defeating 
Waynesburg in a Conference game, 46 to 35. Beckwith featured this game by drop- 
ping eleven two-point shots through the hoop. Fairmount College gave the varsity a 
hard struggle, but the Green came out on top by a 39 to 32 score. In the return game 
at Waynesburg, the Bisons received their first defeat, 38 to 20, at the hands of a much 
improved "Yellow jacket" team. Our second consecutive defeat was administered by 
Geneva at Beaver Falls on the following Wednesday, 48 to 36. A two-day trip to 
Thiel and Westminster resulted in an even break. Thiel was defeated on Friday 
night, 61 to 36, and Westminster was victorious the next evening by a 46 to 26 score. 
Westminster, incidentally, had an impressive team this year, with four of their five 
men standing well over six feet in height. St. Francis, our next opponent, was de- 
feated by the close count of 39 to 37 in an exciting game, while West Virginia Wes- 
leyan was added to our list of victims by a 58 to 34 
margin. Carl Hamill featured this game by caging nine 
baskets from the running guard position. 

Captain Beckwith, C. Hamill, Tinson, Segiel, Herr- 
man, Markley, Baker, J. Hamill, Ryan, Neel and Rush 
comprise the squad that has so far turned in six victories 
and three defeats. Hanna, after a promising start, was 
forced to retire from competition because of the recurrence 
of an old knee injury. With Duquesne, Westminster, 
Geneva and Thiel yet to be played at home, and with 
return games with Duquesne, Fairmont, and Wesleyan, 
we do not hesitate to predict a successful season, with a 
majority of victories in the seven remaining encounters. 

E. L. Kemp, Manager 


Beckwith (Captain) Forward 

His third season of intercollegiate basketball finds Lee at his best. "Charley's" floor work 
is always fast, and he has an uncannily accurate eye for the basket. His ability as a point- 
maker is attested by his eleven field goals in the Waynesburg game. 

TlNSON Guard 

Big John, playing stationary guard, was a tower of strength to the Bison defense. A constant 
threat to the opposing forwards, he was able to break up more than one highly touted attack. 
Jack has only one more year of college basketball. 


Eddie entered school last year after the season was half gone, but jumped into the running 
guard position and made good with a bang. This year finds him in his old position as a regular, 
and holding it to the satisfaction of everyone. Although one of the smallest men on the squad, 
he is very fast, and can hold his own with much larger men. 

C. Hamill Forward 

Carl started the season as a running guard, but was soon switched to his favorite position 
of forward. He is a great all-round man, his shooting being only exceeded by his excellent and 
dependable floorwork. As a running mate for Captain Beckwith, he constitutes the other half 
of the greatest pair of forwards in the Tri-State district. Carl still has two years of basketball 
before him.

Herrmax Center 

Sam returned to us after a year's absence to play his best season of basketball. Of ideal build 
for the center position, Sam -was at his best in the tussle under the baskets. A fine shot, he was 
able to convert many missed shots into points. 




Freshman ' 

Kenneth Baker, who won statewide fame as a high school forward last year, found himself 
confronted with the almost impossible task of beating out one of Bethany's two regular forwards. 
Nevertheless, Baker got into a good number of games, and proved that all the nice things said 
about him were not exaggerations. 

J. Hamill Guard 

Jack was captain of the championship Linsly team of 1925. After remaining out of scholastic 
basketball for a season, he came to Bethany and tried out for the stationary guard position. Al- 
though handicapped by an old injury and by sickness, he won through to a letter after an uphill 
fight. Jack is an excellent shot, and runs up a surprising total of field goals for a still guard. 

MARKLEY Forward 

This is Marklev's second year, he having played last year as a substitute. The first part of 
this year he was used as a reserve man, but his ability soon earned him a regular berth. He 
made quite a sensation when he made seven goals in the Geneva game. Since then he has been 
high point man in several games. Not only does he rate high as a point maker, but he handles 
the ball nicely and mixes in the game every minute. With two more years in college, he should 
become the talk of the district before leaving Bethany.

"To set the cause above renown, to love 
the game above the prize." 



H. L. Kalbaugh, Captain 

Baseball, always a popular and successful sport in 
Bethany, seems due for a comeback after a comparatively 
poor season in 1926. Following the winning of the Tri- 
State championship in 1925, the team was riddled by grad- 
uation, and a let down was naturally expected. In addi- 
tion it was impossible to arrange a satisfactory schedule, 
most colleges in the district having given up baseball as 
a branch of intercollegiate athletics. This year a better 
schedule has been arranged and it will be possible for the 
team to play regularly. 

The most auspicious omen for this year's team is the 
fact that not a single letter man from last year has been 
lost by graduation. The pitching staff will be intact for 
the third year in succession, and in consequence should be 
stronger than an}' preceding one. 
Ex-Captain Herrman. the best hurler Bethany has had since the time of Eddie 
Wells, completes his fourth year of mound duty. We hope it will be better than the 
others. Harry Kalbaugh and Beckwith, the junior members of the staff, have enough 
stuff to puzzle any of the batters they may be called upon to face. All three members 
of the mound corps have a punch at the plate which is far above the average for pitchers. 
Last year's infield, composed of Carey, Peckman, Fiers, Cochran and Price, is 
augmented by the return of Hartley Jaycox, third-baseman, who did not see service 
last year because of illness. All of the men are fine fielders and good hitters, and an 
additional season together will work wonders in team 

Segiel, a freshman last year, quickly won a regular 
berth at catcher. He comes from McKeesport High, the 
school which has given us so many of our ball players. 
.With him behind the bat, the receiving end will be well 
taken care of. 

The outfield is doubtful. Crawford's place must be 
filled, but it is probable that Hamill will be out for base- 
ball again tin's spring, and will hold down center- 
field. The other jobs are open. Nevertheless, it seems 
assured that Coach Nuss will have a trio of fast, hard- 
hitting outfielders. 

The outlook is bright for a successful season in our 
best sport.

\V. T. Latto. Coach 

The track team of 1927 appears to have the brightest out- 
look of any which has yet represented the school. Bethany has 
made rapid progress in this line of sport since its inauguration 
here a few short years ago, but this year's squad hopes to surpass 
all previous performances. 

Bethany hopes rest, to a great extent, on Captain Virgil El- 
liott, who has been the sensation of every meet in which he has 
participated. Elliott is versatile as well as sensational, and is the 
holder of several Tri-State records which will probably stand for 
years to come. He is the representative of the squad in the pole 
vault and high jump, and can always be counted on for a few- 
points in these events. The broad jump finds him at his best; 
it was in this event that he broke the Decathlon record at Phila- 
delphia last spring. In addition, he is a sprinter of marked abil- 
ity, competing in the 100-yard dash, the 220-yard dash, and 
the relay. 

Paul Neel, senior, is another man who is widely known for his speed on the track. Due 
to injury, he was not at his best last season, but this year we are counting on him in the dashes 
and the relay. 

Tarr, who was the fastest man on the squad in 1925, is back again this year in the finest of 
condition. He can be counted on to outstep most men in the Tri-State district in the hundred, and 
is another member of the relay team. 

Morris, the fourth man of the relay, was a freshman last year, and is the youngster of the 
squad. Nevertheless, his time in the hundred speaks for itself; he can keep pace with his three 
running mates. 

In the weight events, Cameron and Elliott are the outstanding performers. In the hammer 
and discus, Cameron was capable of bringing home a good many points last spring, and he should 
improve this year. The javelin throw is another event in which Elliot stars; he can make the 
going hard for any competitor. 

Coach Latto deserves a great deal of credit for the footing on 
which he has placed track athletics at Bethany. Under his able 
tutelage we should have a banner season in 1927.

W, H, Cramblet, Coach 

The prospects for a successful tennis season are not 
especially bright this year. Olsey and Hibler, alternate 
captains last spring, and mainstays of the squad, have 
been lost by graduation. Harry Jones, who won a 
large number of his matches, and toward the end of th; 
schedule showed signs of a return to his top form, is 
not in school this semester. This leaves Captain Ryan 
as the only remaining letter man from last year. How- 
ever, the presence of Kirby, a star of the 1925 squad, 
compensates in a measure for the losses by graduation. 
Mutchler, who broke into several matches last spring, 
and who is reputed to have the best service in school, is 
a sure bet for another of the open positions. This leaves 
the fourth place to the freshmen, and the battle is 
likely to be a hot one, for several of the underclassmen 
have shown ability. 

It would be hardly fair to expect a team of championship caliber. Indeed, it 
is hard to see how this year's squad can even equal last year's. Nevertheless, we can 
hope for the best, and it is possible that Coach Cramblet may uncover a couple of

Tri~State Honorary Athletic Award 


{■Ml Bethany College is a member of the Tri-State Conference. This 

*5r conference is organized and is in existence for the purpose of stand- 

ardizing small college athletics in this section of the country. Its 
principal objective is to eliminate professionalism that in past years has 
characterized all branches of college sports throughout this district. 
It has been in existence only two years, this being the third, but it has 
accomplished, in a large measure, the purpose for which it was created. 
Our Alma Mater is a prominent member of this collegiate body. Our 
athletic director, C. V. Elder, serving in the capacity of secretary, 
has discharged the duties of his office in such an excellent fashion that 
we have rightfully attained to this prominence. 

For the purpose of stimulating the correct type of college ath- 
letes, the Tri-State Conference presents each year to one graduating 
senior of each institution having membership in the Conference, a 
beautiful gold medal. This medal is emblematic of efficiency in 
scholastic attainment as well as athletic prowess. Two of our sons 
have received this distinction, and we are proud to honor them in this 1927 Year 
Book. The two men to whom we have reference are Hubbard Shoemake and Ronald 
Crawford. Both of these men are known to upperclassmen of Bethany, each carrying 
the same spirit into the classroom that characterized his play upon the athletic field. 
"Hub" departed with the Class of 1925, leaving behind him an enviable record as a 
student and fine college man, as well as an athlete. He is, unquestionably the greatest 
tackle ever produced in the football history of our institution. Our rivals, W. and 
J., picked him in 1924 as the greatest tackle to oppose them in the course of the season, 
and Army also made overtures towards getting him after witnessing his play in the 
Bethany-Army game of 1924. He captained the 1925 teams in football and basket- 
ball, being an excellent standing guard in the latter sport. We add here, incidentally, 
that he was selected as an All-Conference basketball guard of that season. 

"Speedo" graduated last year. His achievements are in the minds of every fol- 
lower of Bethany athletics. He earned the varsity "B" in three major sports during 
his school career here. In the spring of 1925, he captained our track squad. His 
senior year he held down the regular position as running guard on our varsity bas- 
ketball quintet' as well as covering centerfield on the Green and White nine of that 
spring. In spite of all these activities, he managed to compete in two track meets that 
same spring, and made a very creditable showing in both. He specialized in the middle 
distances, also competing in the javelin. At present he is in charge of athletics at 
Bethany High School, acting in the capacity of coach. His basketball team of this 
season has enjoyed an outstanding record, and we wish him every possible degree of

Two years ago in Bethany we mourned the loss of all interest in all women's 
athletics. Today we do not mourn, but revel in the interest we have been able to 
arouse among the Bethany girls. We rejoice in four basketball teams, a vital interest 
in swimming, and, in general, the accelerated enthusiasm we find among the girls of 
this college in all sports. 

We have attained no great efficiency, but our aspirations are high. Xo less than 
forty girls went out for the interclass basketball teams, and great numbers attended 
the swimming classes regularly. In fact, the swimming team should be a vital part 
of the seasons to come, although it was only a novelty this season. 

In short, we may boast of the desire for physical perfection as well as mental de- 
velopment. As a natural result, our opportunities have increased and our goals have 
come closer. As an evidence of this new zeal, we may note the training schedule which 
the girls kept in order to obtain the letter given by the Women's Athletic Association. 

The realization that all this is but a beginning is quite obvious, but what great- 
ness has not come from small beginnings? We are proud of our aspirations, and hope 
that they will not be lost by the future co-eds of Bethany. We bequeath to them our 
enthusiasm and our ideal of physical perfection, and expect these small attempts to be 



Athletics, properly conducted, have a value quite apart from the field of physical 
development. It has, both to the group and to the individual, a moral and social sig- 
nificance as well. 

The first athletes of whom we have any certain knowledge were the ancient 
Greeks. If we are to judge their physique as depicted in sculpture and art, we must 
admit that they had an advantage over the modern patterns of Mercury and Hercules. 
Could anyone compare the mighty son of Atlas to the lithe, supple figure of the youth 
serenading his lady fair? Indeed, the print appearing at the front of this section bears 
little enough resemblance to our ideas of the famous Hellenic hero. Yet, the accusa- 
tion remains that most of the present day athletes are of the "parlor" variety. 

Is it just? Let us hope that it is not at Bethany. It is the aim of our athletics 
to approach as nearly as possible the Greek ideal, without including all its faults. The 
Greeks were not always fair. Victory was the primary consideration. Bethany be- 
lieves in the ethics of clean sportsmanship. Bethany places the making of men ahead 
of the winning of victories. 





All Those Who Say, "Huh, I Could Have Done 
Better Than This,

Greetings from Prexy 

OU EGGS give me the Willies. Instead of parking your orbs on the pellet, you let 
the globule take a tour by its lonesome. You're so cuckoo about the 'Collegiate' that 
the prolate spheroid oozes through your dukes." Johnny Cramer, whose syndicated 
sport articles have made him famous because of his pure diction, was speaking. "If 
you would glom onto the hot dope, you would know that nothing but a morbid blot will wear 
knickers except when he is swinging a midiron. Your intentions are noble, but you follow them 
up the way that catfish purr. Take a tip from me. I'm the bivalve's dust cap. It's just like 
I told Eliot when I was up at Harvard, I'd rather wear a wooden overcoat than a yellow 
slicker. These woofs that buy the pash vests affect me the way a ruby banner hits a calf's papa. 
It is the bunk. A hammock-hopper with a plaid sweater makes me glad I'm a Queef-Queef. 
The loud-mouthed Lillies have no more reticence than beefsteak has horns." 

"Why net try to be nice and conservative? Then you can grow up and be an English 
prof. Turn the lamps on one who knows, and knock off a bit of wisdom for yourselves. You 
act like a flock of bleachers hollering for Case." 

Gashouse Johnny paused for breath, and C. Willhad Stage eye-eye busted off. "You're 
saying words but they don't track. Be funny, you're all wet. I got an artistic temperament. 
Read my column in the Semi-Fortnightly and be convinced. The evidence is plaim to be seen. 
Notice the kindness with which I treat the herculean efforts of the Fifth Avenue Female Sem- 
inary. Did you read ray masterly criticism of 'Jurgen' — the play, not the soap — and then decide 
whether I must be trammelled with convention? My soul demands the right to wear a dinner 
jacket with riding breeches and a raccoon coat in August. I must feed my ego. I am young, 
pitifully young, and I must follow the natural course of development which distinguishes genius 
from the 'hoi polloi.' I demand an investigation. Investigate everything. And I point with 
pride to my wonderful work as technical director of 'Merry Masquers.' I understand 'Jurgen.' " 
The Pride of the Mountains smiled his famous smile. In his delicious drawl, he expressed a 
well-considered opinion. "I have been in college as long as any of you guys. It doesn't make 
a whole lot of difference when you wear what if you can call every girl 1 on the East Side by her 
first name. That is what really means something. After all, we come to college to pick out some 
woman to support us for the balance of our lives. They have classes so that the fellows can 
meet each other and then each other's Femsem friends. No objection to town girls. So are 
fraternities. I have belonged to enough of them to know. The Student Council is another de- 
vice for the benefit of college men. It was designed to support the worthy poor. It has done 
well by me. But that is just incidental. If you're a knockout with the ladies, why worry about 
the profs? I love the ladies and the ladies all love me." 


All-College Teams 

With the death of Walter Camp, the responsibility of picking the following athletic teams 
has fallen upon our shoulders, necks and all that is up in that section of the anatomy, and since 
it is up to us, we have figured that we will add the following departments:

As the Men Saw It 

Friday night, due to the entire absence of work, the I Slamba Guy fraternity entertained 
at the chapter house in honor of the Christmas and Thanksgiving and New Year's season. The 
evening was spent in bridge, checkers, dominos, and at linguistic games, followed by a fourteen- 
course luncheon. 

The house was decorated in ermine and gold. Favors consisted of sable coats, and silver 
lamps were given to the women, together with snappy little sport model Packards as a mere re- 
minder of what they had gone through. It is said that the party was an expensive one — costing 
only approximately $50,000, and was not entirely up to standard as set by the social leaders of 
this vicinity. 

A jazz orchestra made up of members of the fraternity furnished the incentive for a struggle 
that was not permitted. Confetti chewing furnished part of the pastime. A police raid inter- 
rupted the solemnity of the occasion, but it was only a part of the program. 
A nice time was had by all. 

As the Women Saw It 

The worst flop of the ages was attended by some who could find nothing to do Friday night 
at the I Slamba Guy frat house. 

Favors consisting of opportunities to walk to and from the house were given to the women, 
who showed their house spirit by attending. The house was decorated in patched wall paper, 
sorted house skins, dusty chairs and what nots (lots of what nots). 

Rotten chow was served, and no likker allowed, with the exception of a few whiskey bottle 
corks which were chained to the fireplace. The guests were permitted to smell the corks, although 
the odor was weak, having been mostly all absorbed by the brothers previous to the fracas. 

Fifty per cent of the faculty were present to act as chaperons, and special high-powered 
lights had been installed in all corners and over all davenports. Tacks were in the davenports 
so that occupancy would not be for too long a time. 

A good time was had by all (after leaving). 

As the Faculty S 



Friday morning and night saw one of the most damnable orgies ever staged under our watch- 
ful eye. Early morning rising disturbed the tranquility of the community, dancing broke the rules 
of the institution, and rubber boots were worn by all present. The outrage was one of the promo- 
tions of the I Slamba Guy fraternity. 

The upstairs had previously been fixed up in hospital style, and a physician and nurse were 
in attendance. Many cases of tonsilitis had been imported, and, according to our scoutical in- 
formation, which had proved reliable in the past, many of the participants are under the weather. 

For those who could do nothing else dancing was permitted by the Morons in charge, the 
music for which was furnished by the sub-normals of the group. 

An investigation will follow. 

A deplorable time was indulged in by all.

^©^^ Freshman Day- -Parties 

Senior Kid 


A Retrospect 

Dear Diary: 

So this is college' T know I shall like it. The White Cargo arrived on the twentieth, 
with John Paul as motorman. I noticed two bathing beauties on the dean's list of new students- 
Miss Cleveland and Miss Washington. Such competition will be trying for a new freshman, I m 
afraid There have been several novel social events— the annual Sod-busters Reunion, a Y. W. 
C A 'kid party, a church reception, and girl's sorority parties no end. Oh, Diary! I wish you 
could see the clever looking fellows! Someone told me the Sigs got so many pledges that Alt 
Carey has to carrv a typewritten list to remember them. 

Everyone has been talking about Kirk being on "biz." What can this mean? 

Dear Diary: 

It makes me so proud to belong to the Class of 1930. Prexy says it's such an unusual group 
of freshmen. But the Sophs won't give us a chance! I shall never forget how stupid, we felt on 
Freshman Day, the fourteenth. Bethany's athletic program has been rather disappointing this 
month, showing no victories, tied games with Westminster and Duquesne, and a defeat at the 
hands of Geneva. However, the student body, including the co-eds, has lots of spirit. 

I have never seen Babe Dowden, but everyone has been telling, since his death a few days 
ago, that he was a character no Bethany grad can ever forget. Mary Ann Crowe confused him 
with Bebe Daniels, and her home town paper reported the death of the actress in a West Virginia 

There was another funeral this month— that of the Student Council. Forrest Kirkpatrick 
deserves credit for the organization of a Student Board of Governors. 

There have been many social engagements. The Betas put on the "dernier cri" in parties 
when they made us girls cook the dinner for their weekly Saturday "at home." The K. A.'s, 
Alpha Xi's and Phi Tau's also entertained. 

Dear Diary: 

This has been a hectically busy month, considering two football victories, pep demonstra- 
tions, studies, and parties. From the 1 6th to the 19th everybody joined in the week of prayer 
for exams. Two new engagements were announced — Lucille and Ottie; Jane and Al. In the 
social world, the Alpha Xi Delta party at Campbell Mansion, the Zeta Hobo party, and the 
Beta Masqued Carnival were of interest to all, particularly to the gold diggers. There was a 
wedding on Thanksgiving— that of Miss Lois White and Mr. John Adams, Bethany graduates. 
"The Arrival of Kitty," was presented in Commencement Hall on Armistice Day. 
When Ruth Dye was going through her Athletic Club initiation, Prof. Workman remarked, 
"Two more dumb-bells in class this morning." He would. 

All the keyholes were stuffed with mud when I went to class today (November 16), and 
Mrs. Bourne's chairs were missing. Boys will be children ! I wondered what Prexy meant by 
saving that the Student Board of Governors seemed to be functioning! ! ! 

Dfar Diary: 

It was announced in chapel that anyone wishing to arrange dates should see Kirk, and I 
was about to ask him to try to fix me up with that high-hatting Stuart fellow, when I learned 

that the announcement referred to social dates for organizations, and that the calendar was al- 
ready full. 

We had the unusual privilege, in a single week, of entertaining two famous men, and in 
listening to them in chapel — Mr. Black of China and Mr. Black of England — "Lloyd George with 
a hair cut," as he was called. Another enjoyable experience was the Marionette's performance 
of "A Midsummer Night's Dream," the first number of the lecture course. 

Vacation is here at last! As I think back over the last week, a thrill sweeps over me. How 
can I ever forget singing Christmas carols in the light of a clear, cool moon, or fail to remember 
the Sigma Nu party at the Henry Clay Tavern, where Don Salmon was presented with a fur 
coat by his fraternity brothers! Merry Christmas! 

Dear Diary: 

Happy New Year! I have resolved to follow the dictates of Dame Fashion, no matter how 


the fourth, and signs of prosperity 

high she says to wear them. Christmas vacation 
have been visible on the campus ever since. 

Lee Beckwith's five have been showing wonderful floor work in the seven games this month, 
winning all the home games. 

Besides, there have been two lecture course numbers — Harriet Eells, mezzo-soprano, and the 
Sitting Trio, which was exceptionally fine. The Merry Masquers Dramatic Club presented "The 
Stone Lady" under the direction of John Paul Pack. 

In the world of society there was a Phi Kappa Tau Underworld Party, a Senior Class re- 
ception, a Zeta Tau Alpha party. The marriage of Mr. Frank Stuck was announced. 

Lent was unduly harsh this year because of the iron hand of judgment, which put all Sigma 
Nu girls "off biz." 

"O Lord of Hosts, be with me yet, 
Lest I forget; lest I forget." 

Dear Diary: 

"The Lord of Hosts was with me not, 
For I forgot, for I forgot." 
February 8, 1927, A. C. (After Charleston) was registration day. Like turning over a new 
leaf — this chance to begin again. Mable Arnold has decided to major in Economics, since she 
is so interested in "Prices." 

The annual mid-year party was a Pirate Brawl, beginning with a movie, continuing by a 
scene on board the good ship "Damfino," and closing by a typical pirate lunch in the basement 
of the library. The "Pro and Conn" of the program brought a lot of applause. 

The 1 8th and r9th were home-coming, and every minute was full of x-citement. First was 
the big game with Geneva, then banquets, receptions, fraternity initiations, and finally, the daz- 
zling home-coming revue. 

The sport program showed only one disappointment — a loss of 19 to 21 at the hands of 
Duquesne. All seven of the others were thrilling games. 

Ln Workman came back again, and everyone was so glad to see her. 

The basketball team took a week-end trip into West Virginia. Helen Thompson haunts the 
postnffice looking for a letter from Carl. 

Everyone is speculating as to how the new boys will go. Two former Bethanians, "Dutch" 
Idleman and Richard Dungari, were here for flying visits. 

Dear Diary: 

The almanac says that if March comes in like a lion it goes out like a lamb, but if it comes 
in like a Iamb, it's still a lyin'. 

The basketball season closed gloriously. Jack Hamill and "Bake" formed the "Red Grange 
Club" (One Minute to Play). They've decided to take Hartley Jaycox as a pledge. 
Saint Patrick's Day was observed with much show of green and white. 

Red MacLean doesn't seem to be able to forget that Memphis girl of his, and keeps the post- 
office busy and the telephone wires hot. 

The other day George Kirby lost his hat as he was going up the hill in the March breeze. 
Someone reported that the creek would be dragged in an effort to recover the valuable article. 
A reward is also offered for its return. 

Dear Diary: 

"Stew" has been out every day working on the college, farm. His father wants him to be a 
pharmacist, so he's taking agriculture this semester. 

This month "is all very discouraging" to me. First, there was the Reign of Terror — exams 
week, and, second, mid-semester reports came out on the eighth. We all came back on the sist 
to rest up after Easter vacation, which began on the fifteenth. 

Aunt Pearl held a meeting of the girls to tell them that muddy shoes would be taken as 
proof that the walking rules were being broken again. Now I'm frightened to death, because I 
always seem to have a "date" who loves the Beta walk. 

Dear Diary: 

It's so much fun going to the baseball games and wearing great big straw hats because the 
sun is so bright. Our fellows certainly know how to play baseball. I can't decide which sport 
I like best; the fellows are all so good looking. 

The Bethanian has now gone to press. Would that, with the eyes of a prophet, I might 
look into the future and see what will happen here when two more months have rolled around. 
Will Bill put his pin "on Tic?" Will our baseball team score its usual number of victories? 
Will we beat W. and J. again in track? 

Dear Diary: 

"June, the month of roses," and our campus will be a haven of beauty. Well, it deserves 
the distinction of being one of the ten most beautiful in America. If all other memories of my 
college days should leave me, surely the inspiration which came with gazing at the loveliness of 
Nature here will follow me all the days of my life. 

June 12 is the date set for the Baccalaureate Sermon; June 13 the sorority banquets will be 
given; June 15, annual commencement and fraternity banquets. 

And now — adieu!

Songs Introduced in the 1927 
Homecoming Revue 

A Worthy Son 

Here is 


a song for our college, 
is a cheer for her team, 
A pledge from sons ever loyal, 
To hold her in highest esteem; 
To be where the fight is thickest, 

To fight till the vict'ry's won, 
To win from our Alma Mater 
The tribute — a Worthy Son. 


We'll treasure her memories dearly, 

And hold to her ideals true. 
We'll drink from her fountains together, 

Our strength and our faith renew. 
We'll go where duty calls us, 

And serve till our tasks are done; 
We'll give of the best that she gave us — 

Be ever her Worthy Son. 



Others have been here before us, 

And walked on the old corridor, 
Have written their names high before 

Their spirits are here as of yore. 
Still others will follow our footsteps, 

As time swiftly onward runs; 
They'll be true to old Bethany, 

Be Bethany's Worthy Sons. 

— W. H. Cramblet, 'io. 

H i ! Yi ! For Alma Mater 
Hi! Yi! for Alma Mater, 
Rah! Rah! Rah! for Bethany- 
Cheer for our team today, boys, 
Help them to win the fray, boys, 
Urge them on to victorv. 
Hi! Hi! Hi! for Alma Mater, 
Rah! Rah! Rah! for Bethany; 
Together we will fight 
For the Green and for the White, boys, 
Fight and win for Bethany. 

— W. H. Cramblet, 'io. 

(Continued from Page 126) 
of success in the offensive as well as the defensive play of the team. The whole Bison machine 
functioned as a unit and gave promise of better things in the two remaining games. 

Katy Easterdav, a former Bethanv coach, but now directing the football destiny of closest 
Conference rivals, 'received a distinct shock on the Saturday following the Thiel game when a 
scrappy varsity of the Green blasted his Conference aspirations by defeating Waynesburg 7 to o. 
When Carl drove over the goal line from the one-yard line in the second quarter, after Shives 
had carried the ball into striking distance on a forward pass from Carey, the game, as far as 
scoring was concerned, was over. Not so, however, from another angle, as the ensuing three 
periods witnessed a terrific defensive game by both elevens. No other scoring opportunities pre- 
sented themselves for either team, in spite of Waynesburg once being dangerously close to the 
Bison goal as a result of a poor punt. Again the whole varsity featured with its team play, 
and returned to the George Washington Hotel that evening for a belated Thanksgiving dinner, 
a happy, even though a tired and battered squad. 

Dame Fortune, in the form of two unfortunate fumbles and a much sought after blocked kick, 
presented the Conference champs, Geneva, with a football game on November 27. All of the 
above happened in a few short minutes in the first quarter of our game with Geneva, and re- 
sulted in a 20 to o score. For three quarters following this orgy of scoring, the Bisons fought 
a very good Geneva team to the proverbial standstill, but could not succeed in scoring. This last 
game of our schedule was played on a very cold, muddy field, and, although defeated, our varsity 
gave a very good account of itself after that disastrous first quarter. Two unfortunate incidents 
marred the game. Stobbs and Neel were both rather badly injured late in the second half. 
The final whistle dropped the curtain on the 1926 football season, and witnessed the passing of 
Neel, Shives, Kinsey and Carey from active football service for "Old Bethany."
