Editors' Greeting. 

nothp:r year has rolled by and out of it has sprung this, the 
second number of the Bizarre, the product of the honest and 
industrious labors of the Class of 1900. 

Recognizing the efficiency of Lebanon Valley College under 

her present management, and the demands of the times, we 

have endeavored to present to our readers a book which we believe to be 

in full sympathy, and which shall represent the inner life of our college 

during the past year. 

In gathering material for this volume we have received the uniform 
courtesy of all classes, societies, etc., and extend our hearty thanks for 
the same. 

We trust that no offence will be occasioned to an}' one on account of 
whatever may appear to be grinding in these pages, but that these things 
will be taken in the light in which they were intended, viz: as jokes. 
Hoping that this Bizarre may meet with approbation whithersoever it 
goeth, we submit it to our readers. 

The editors rest, now let the cross examination of the critic begin.

''Lebanon VaUe^/' 

KBANON Valley College was founded to meet a need in the 
Church of the United Brethren in Christ in the East. Other 
institutions of learning had been founded in the states beyond 
the Alleghanies, but as the years passed, the growth of the 
church in the eastern states demanded a school for the training 
of its young people in the best things of life. Thus about the close of the 
Civil War this imperative need culminated in an effort to find a suitable 
location . Annville was finally made the choice of the committee appointed 
for the purpose, and here the college was founded in 1866. It was char- 
tered in 1867 by the Legislature of Pennsylvania with full power to do the 
most advanced collegiate work. 

In accord with the purposes of the founders to establish an institution 
that would meet the needs of the times in general and practical training, 
with a view to the best intellectual development and equipment, the col- 
lege offers three courses of study — Classical, Scientific and Musical. 

The buildings are three in number and a fourth is now in process of 
construction. This latter has been made possible by the generosity of an 
earnest and enthusiastic friend of the college,, and will be the home of the 
Conservatory of Music, together with the Library, Reading Room and 
Society Halls. 

The college has been co-educational from its founding and numbers 
among its graduates many alumnae who are to-day serving their gener- 
ation in the responsible duties that devolve upon refined and cultured 
womanhood. The alumni are to be found in every section of the country, 
and engaged in the professions and varied occupations open to the trained 
of the sterner sex. Many others — numbering into the thousands — have 
received partial training and are the better in personal ability and char- 
acter and in service and practical usefulness to society for such training.

Old Ninct\;-Nine. 

'Tis not of some ancient classic 

That I would write to-day, 

'Tis not of the lords and nobles, 

That long' have passed away, 

But I would send this message 

To you in simple rhyme, 

From those, whose names are yet unknown 

To the mystic years of Time. 

It was somewhere along' in the nineties 

That we first began to be, 

That we first hailed the light of morning 

Through the windows of L. V. C. 

We have swept through "Prep." and Freshman, 

We've experienced Sophomore, 

And have, with pride, been Juniors, 

But can be such ?io more. 

Ah, no ! we are more ancient. 
We're Seniors classified. 
We have been taug-ht to wear a smile. 
And caps and g'owns beside. 
We stand to-day, with courage. 
On the threshold of Life's door. 
We shall not pass this way again. 
Or g'reet you as before. 

Our coUeg'e days are dear to us. 
We have g'leaned many a friend. 
Sometimes^ weyi?«;" the future, now 
That all these scenes must end ; 
'Tis hard to part, to say adieu, 
Perchance, no more to meet. 
Oh friends, to every one of us, 
Old college days are sweet. 

No more we'll stroll the campus o'er, 

Or watch the baseball game. 

Or steal away to Steinmetz woods. 

For violets, wild and tame. 

No, we must pass adown the path. 

strewn with L,ife's pleasures new, 
Some seek for power and some for fame, 
We leave the old to you. 

Perchance, amidst your work of books. 
You shall not think of those. 
Who made the path o'er which you trod, 
And shared like joys and woes ! 
If such should be, we can't condemn- 
But we remember thee, 
Thoug-h scattered far in every la.nd 
Apart, for aye, we be ! 

Say, do you think one can forg-et. 

And start life all anew, 

And will time screen in silent years 

The friends we loved most true ? 

Can we forg-et old coUeg^e song-s, 

Or Banjo Serenade, — 

Can all the rush of business drown 

The prayers the Dr. prayed ? 

Ah, when we think of this, we say. 

That we are loathe to leave, 

And parting brings back olden times, 

For which our spirits grieve, 

But when we think of what Life holds 

For us, if we are true. 

Of honor and of richest good 

Of noble work to do, — 

We long to go; we long to drink, 
From out Life's copious streams 
The wealth of years; we leave to you 
The past and all its dreams. 
Your lot be in business worlds. 
Or in home's purer shrine 
We beg you cherish in j'our hearts, 
Cooil will for '99. 

— H.\TTiE Spangi^ek Shei.i.ev.

HE task alloted to the Historian of the Senior class is difficult. 
About to leave the portals of his college home he sees that the 
great world has dawned upon him. Go out and meet the world 
he must. Why shou.ld he be compelled to glance backward ? To 
leave the scenes of a calm and placid existence, whatever joys 
the future may have in store, is but sorrow. 

The class of Ninety-Nine has always looked forward to the time that 
should herald its departure from the college halls. The Senior year 
seemed so distant at first and yet how short the time, how quickly at least 
has a semblance of order been secured out of the chaotic, material of the 
childish natures we brought with us. How diiferently we see things 
around us now. What possibilities and promises of a deeper and more 
expanded life our years at college have given us, truly we will never meet 
another period as were these 3'ears spent at Lebanon Valley, — years so 
short, so free from care, yet so fruitful and so vital. The call is loud 
and we will answer. We will recall the times of our Freshmen and 
Sophomore days. Oh ! what great boys and girls many of us had been 
before that time ! some of us had been principals of schools : some had 
been graduates ; some by the elegance of their declamation had delighted 
large assemblies ; some had made Sunday-school speeches ; some had 
sung in the home choir; while others, both handsome and pretty, had 
taken great pleasure in wooing and being wooed. But the world knew 
not our greatness and we all alike had to be humbled. To work up this 
heterogeneous mass into something like a homogenity required some time, 
as you can think. 

That the task was accomplished the present roll of the class clearly 
proves. As an evidence of our college spirit, in our Junior year we pub- 
lished Vol. I, No. I, of the Bizarre. Not desirous of boasting we will 
allow the demand and praise received from the Alunmi and friends to 
testify to the ardor and merit of the book, — it marks an epoch in the on- 
ward movement of our institution. 

We returned from our homes last fall and found ourselves Seniors. 
When we called the roll we found that Rudy did not respond to his name. 
Subsequently we learned that he had augmented himself by joining the 


" Benedicts " and that he had settled down to a sober and industrious life 
at farming. Haines too did not answer the call. On inquiry we found 
that he had become an ardent admirer of the profession of Ichabod Crane. 
Rumor has it that he is quite an efficient schoolmaster. 

The class of Ninety-Nine has always been recognized en account of 
its hard workers. How we dug and dug at the course until we arrived at 
the present Senior year, then we advanced still farther, for we began to 
dig into the interior of the earth where the mysteries of creation were re- 
vealed to us. At times however we returned to the crust of the earth and 
tried to master electricity and magnetism and sometimes we would even 
soar awaj' off to the fierj' sun and silent moon to learn of their stored 
away mysteries, — mysteries yet to be revealed, perhaps by some of our 

It would be unfair to our girls were I to neglect to mention of their 
high social qualities. I dare say the courtesy of the whole student body 
is theirs. They have lighted and livened many of our social events, one 
of which certainly must be recorded in this history ; it was known as the 
Conversational. At this event the class had the honor of the presence of 
Dr. and Mrs. Roop and Miss Wolfe. One of the many distinctive fea- 
tures of the occasion were the toasts responded to by each and every mem- 
ber of the class. The whole event is well worthy to be recorded on these 
pages, as one full of life and good fellowship. 

Casting another glance backward we see that the last three years have 
not only been a time of growth for us as a class, but for the whole col- 
lege. While we numbered six when we entered, the present Freshman 
class is considerably larger. It is also gratifying to know that measures 
are being taken and improvements are under way which are fully com- 
mensurate with this growth. 

Twenty-three Seniors are about to leave the college family and become 
children of an Alma Mater. We have reached the cross roads of life and 
are now trying to read the weather beaten sign -post that points out to each 
one of us a separate pathway. We have often dreamed of these ways, 
but now the coming years with their varied experiences will teach us their 
realities. When that time comes how fondly we will look back to the 
happy days at Lebanon Valley. 

Happy because free from care. We depart from her halls feeling that 
the years spent under her care will always prove a living spot when scores 
of winters have whitened the locks of the Seniors of the class of Ninety- 
Nine. In the name of my classmates I now bid you adieu.

Tt)e Janiors. 

Oh, Juniors, fair Juniors, come sing to me ever, 
Sing- of the fun we've had here together; 
We've passed through the sorrows and seasons of j'ore. 
And look now with pity on the proud Sophomore. 

We've passed o'er the borders of the Freshmen so green, 
And launched out our boat on waters serene; 
We've exalted our banner of lav'nder and white. 
And conquered the Seniors in a desperate fight. 

O hail to the Juniors, ye lads and ye lasses. 
Thy banner shall float monarch of the classes; 
We'll fig-ht for our rights; no foe will we dread 
That henceforth and ever on our land shall tread. 

For wisdom and knowledg^e we firmly will stand 
United our eft'orts in heart and in hand; 
Success crowns our efforts; for duty enthralls 
The Juniors who toil in these classical halls. 

Just look at our damsels, some shy and some not; 
Yet too conscientious to be found with a trot. 
Beneath their dark brows and brig-ht piercing- eyes 
Their blushing- smiles greet you like one from the skies. 

There once was a Senior exceedingly tall 
Who stole from our ranks a fairy so small; 
He woed her so shyly and stole her away 
But all now agree he received a good pay. 

We furnish the husbands we furnish the wives, 
In fact bj' our doings, the college now thrives; 
We carry the honor in Greek and mechanics 
And give a sweet charm to our grave mathematics. 

Who solve the hard problems in differentiation. 
And please the professor all through integration ? 
Who toil all day long like the innocent bee ? 
The sturdy young Juniors of dear L. V. C. 

Thus joined by the chords of affection and love 
We strive for each other our friendship to prove. 
No band is more noble, nor filled with such glee 
As the jolly young Juniors of dear L. V. C. 

All hail to the Juniors stout hearted and brave 
For the honors ye won, for the blessings ye gave: 
'In the sweet fields of Eden," thou too shall be numbered 
In that grand assembly to be called 1900. 

— "Spess," '00. 

Hi^tor^ of Ci^SS of 1^)00. 

T is my privilege and pleasure, after a comparatively short time, to 
chronicle the past events of the class of Nineteen Hundred for the 
second time. I must necessarily give a succinct account of the 
happenings of this organization, because of the limited space 
allowed. To go into minute details, would fill volumes. And 
since a brief record of the class has been published in the '99's Bizarre, 
I will confine my narration to the facts of the last year. 

Let the mind now take flight on an excursion, back to the memorable 
day when the Sophomores were metamorphosed into dignified Juniors. 
The change was natural and agreeable. No one knows where the Sopho- 
more coil was shuffled off, and the new one taken on. Neither can it be 
said exactly, where the Sophomore kingdom was abandoned for the higher 
realm. Yet this fact cannot be disputed, that after that auspicious day, 
June 16, every member of the class fully realized that he was metamor- 
phosed, without pain, and almost unconscioush', into a more beautiful 
and symmetrical being. 

The class was on hand bright and earl}' at the opening of the first 
session of the college year, iSgS-'gg. The Juniors entered upon their 
new duties with enviable tact. And they have since demonstrated that 
they are ambitious ornaments, deserving to command notice, and merit- 
ing praise. 

The next fact, dear to the memory of every student and professor 
that was present, is the event of the Junior Ramble on September 30, 1898. 

Every heart leaps with rapture, with the ineradicable remembrance 
of the pleasures of that day. It seems as clear as though it were but 
yesterday, to see the merry student body boarding the cars at L. V. C. on 
that bright and cheerful morning. It was a perfect morning, which fore- 
told a perfect daj'; when all the elements were tranquil, and the gay hearts 
of the excursionists, inspired by the majestic beauty and sublime harmony 
of nature, burst forth in gleeful song. Such was the aspect of the party 
speeding toward Penryn. 

The anticipation of every one was surpassed throughout the day. 


In the evening the party returned, feeling amply repaid for having through 
the Juniors' benevolence " embraced the opportunity." 

Another fact in the beginning of the winter term demands special 
recognition. Dr. and Mrs. H. U. Roop invited the Juniors to spend an 
evening with them at their home. In accordance with their good pleas- 
ure, the Juniors gratefully accepted the kind invitation, and the evening 
of January 6, was spent most delightfulh^ in enjoying their hospitality. 
The presence of Bishop and Mrs. Kephart, as well as several of the promi- 
nent members of the faculty, was highly propitious to the augumentation 
of a lasting impression. This has been the first Junior class honored in 
such a gorgeous style. 

In the Junior public rhetoricals, the members have shown capacity 
and ingenuity to cope successfully with the great problems that need to be 

As the vicissitudes of the past year have been many throughout the 
whole world, hearts have been broken, hearts have been made glad, na- 
tions have been subdued, nations have been elevated, might and right has 
made a mighty stride, so continual vicissitudes of fortune have come to 
this organization. No hearts have been broken, but conquered. Indi- 
viduals have been subdued, and hearts now beat with the same number of 
vibrations. Judging from appearances, any resolution to find the com- 
ponents will be futile as long as life lasts. We must he content with the 
knowledge of the resultant : 

"Two souls with but a single thoug-ht 
Two hearts that beat as one." 

What may be the final outcome of this organization remains to be re- 
vealed through a higher agency.

Tl)e Class of '01. 

Come, good folka, from glen and city, 
Come, listen to my little ditty. 
I will tell of a class immortal, 
That has lately crossed the portal 

Of our g-rand old L. V. C. 
Before ours there were classes many, 
Better there are none; not any 
Ever reached the heights we hold, 
Therefore, do not think us bold 

If we spurn your sympathy. 

No, pity is not what we need, 
Justice, alone, is all we plead. 
If the Profs, but treat us right, 
We will toil through half the night 

To prepare our French and Greek. 
Then when our tasks have all been done, 
You may be sure we'll have some fun. 
'Mid innocent glee and joy we'll pass 
The happy hours just after class. 

Ne'er marred by rude trick or freak. 

We are the best of all the classes; 
Noblest lads and prettiest lasses. 
None e'er appeal to us in vain, 
If truly they seek some aid to gain 

In life's stern school of duty. 
Hence for kindness we are noted. 
Nobler deeds have ne'er been quoted; 
Deeds whose valor and great renown 
Have spread to every land and town; 

Kobed in pure truth and beauty. 

In athletics we can hold our own, 
For defeat we ne'er j'et have known. 
Though football is our greatest go — 
Because we have the strength, you know. 

United with the best of skill. 
Nor at the bat can fault be found, 
In fact we're athletes all around, 
From playing tennis in the fall, 
To mid-winter's game, basket ball. 

We enter each with earnest will. 

With all our sport we're endeavoring' here 
To prepare to fill life's proper sphere. 
For we've learned to realize ere this, 
That life is not one round of dreamy bliss, 

But a cruel stern reality. 
To support the good, throug-h want and lack, 
We e'er shall strive, 'neath the Orang'e and Black. 
May virtue bless us with an abundant store. 
Love g-uide us till we reach the golden shore 

And a sweet immortality. 

Then honest and true let us be to the last. 
Till life's duties are all successfully past, 
Through suffering and trial, through woe and weal, 
Let us enter upon each with an earnest zeal 

Till the set of our life's sun. 
May we then, though unworthily blest. 
Enter upon a sweet, eternal rest; 
Forever may we then united be, 
Through all the ages of eternity, 

The loyal class of 1901.

Tf)e Pcitare Qn veiled. 

[TTING one evening in my study just as Helios in his fier}' chariot, 
drawn by his fiery steeds, passed beyond the western horizon, 
reflecting over the present and trying to penetrate the future, 
while musing I thought about this and that, about myself and 
the score of class-mates. Being thus alone while the boj'S were 
standing in groups in Congress and Penitentiary Halls discussing now one 
thing and then another, all at once I was startled. I thought Zeus was 
hurling thunderbolts against this classic building. I listened, and lo, to 
my surprise I heard in Congress and Penitentiary Halls, on College Ave- 
nue, on the Campus, and at the Ladies' Hall : 

"Rackety 1 Rackety ! 
Re ! Rah ! Rah ! 
One and Nineteen ! 
Sis ! Boom ! Bah ! " 

Just then I perceived that I belonged to this ubiquitous body of 
school-mates. When I realized where and who I was questions of va- 
rious kinds came in upon me. I wonder what this class will do? Will it 
rank as high as some of the preceding classes which have left these halls? 
Will it be au important or non-important factor in the world? Being thus 
given to meditation I was again disturbed, this time by a rushing sound. 
I looked about whence the sound came; lo, by my side stood Hermes just 
arrived from Olympus. The divine messenger addressed me thus : "Pho;- 
bus-ApoUo has watched your musings. You have found favor in his 
sight. He bids me bring you to his Olympian palace. Where he will 
make known to you the things that be and are to be hereafter." Imme- 
diately I was ready and bid the messenger from the Far-darter to lead the 
way. Swift as the wind we flew over mountain crag, over valleys, — 
beyond the vision of mankind. We stopped at a palace too beautiful to de- 
scribe, and which moreover, Apollo forbids me. Hermes straightway led 
me into the presence of him who knows the future. Having greeted me 
and satisfied my hunger and thirst, he addressed me thus: " Knowing 
that you are solicitous about the future, and since you have found favor 


ill my sight I have brought you here to show you what shall be. In order 
that you may know all, I shall remove the veil and permit you to look 
down the vistas to see for yourself." This is what I saw : 

M. S. S. will become an adept in horticulture and raise onions for the 
Annville market. S. R. W. will continue his travels through heaven be- 
gun — 1898. 1,. E. R. and F. A. L. will teach the youths and maidens. 
M. K. Y. will preach the Gospel to his own people, and in his native 
country. Will also become renowned as a linguist. S. E. P. will con- 
tinue his search for knowledge. He will seek the shade of Socrates and 
continue the dialogue begun on February, — 1899. Mr. S. E. P. "Sapere 
ande." H. O. H. E. will become president of a new Trans-China rail- 
road. He will become renowned as a financier. W. R. W. B. is destined 
to become owner of a large stereoscope factory. Poo Ro W. after gradu- 
ation goes to the island of Lilliput. There fame awaits him. As an ora- 
tor he will be without a peer. The trees will bow, the stones weep, the 
birds stop their flight at the sound of his voice. Expop will become 
pastor of a large and flourishing congregation in the city of Manilla 
where he will be known as the Beecher of Luzon. B. E. F. K. will be 
called to the chair of Mathematics in Euclidian University, and will be- 
come famous for having successfully proved the square of a circle. Ed 
will settle down soon after graduation to a life of ease, and will continue 
his good work while life lasts. Frank not being strong in body will enter 
the field of literature. He will become famous for his Epic "The Rise 
and Fall of Football." Elizabeth always happy, always contented, will 
do what she can to ameliorate the sufferings of the sorrowing ones. 
Thomas will become proprietor of a large mercantile establishment, and 
give special attention to agriculture. He will become a member of the 
President's cabinet in the Department of Agriculture. Clinton when he 
had finished his course at L. V. C. learned the carpenter trade. His trade 
finished he married and settled down in life, moving into the Sargent 

S. A. G. after leaving L. V. C. will enter the Law Department of 
Maryland University. He will be graduated with high honors. Balti- 
more will be his home. He will become the leading attorney of the Ori- 
ole State. He will be called to the executive chair of both state and na- 
tion. The brother will always be a bachelor. Willie will entertain the 
populace. He will be the star and owner of a concert company which is 
destined to be exceedingly popular. Urgent calls will come from Mars, 
Jupiter, Venus, and Saturn, but the brother prefers to remain with Ner- 
thus. Brother Rook will become famous for his researches in philology, 


also as a diplomat. When brother S. will be President, and brother T. 
Secretary of Agriculture, brother R. will hold the portfolio of Secretary 
of State. When brother R. disappeared the veil that hides the future 
dropped, and I was left to meditate. 

Once more Phcebus Appollo addressed me: "That illustrious body 
whose individual history you have seen is destined to be the marvel of the 
ages. For mental acumen, diversity of talent, piety, and in favor with 
the gods it will be unsurpassed. I shall take each under my special pro- 
tection, and when those of your number who are destined to become rulers 
of the state and nation rule, then I will be with them and the state and 
the nation." 

Hermes now came and conducted me to my study. When I realized 
what I had seen and heard, I rejoiced that I, too, was a Sophomore.

Hurrah ! for the class of 1902. 

To L. V. C. we are a charm; 
For better work no class can do; 

Ana to its fame we do no harm. 

We have but lately made a start. 

And with a never-failing- zeal 
We'll try to do a noble part. 

No matter how the world may feel. 

Our numbers now are very few, 

For we are not yet in our prime. 

But we'll do more than others do 

And swell our ranks in course of time. 

We've talent, that is what they say — 
Our minds are srood and strong. 

We'll surely make a grand display 

When we are mingled with the throng. 

As we draw nearer to our goal. 

And through the entire course have passed. 
Our name shall spread from pole to pole. 

Until our haven's reached at last. 

Just as to nature sun does give 

Its life and all its verdant beauty, 

So all our work will bloom and live 
Long after we have done our duty. 

As poets sing- the praise of spring, 

And chant it ever to wise men, 
Just so the world of us will ring. 

After the Senior Class we've been. 

Niagara is of world wide fame 

And tourists worship at her shrine. 

Just so our class will make a name 

To live through never-ceasing time. 

Just as the bards of old did sing 

The wonders of the ages past, 
So will the songs in future ring 

With wonders of the Freshman Class. 

Our class now numbers four and seven, 
Long may we live in God's pure love; 

And may our final goal be Heaven — 
To be a chosen class above. 

O^ss fli^tor>^. 

URING Commencement week of last year eight young men just 
fresh from the Preparatory School took the initiatory steps to 
forming an organization which should constitute the Freshman 
class of Lebanon Valley College the moment after the capped 
and gowned Seniors became alumni. 
These. plucky 3'oungsters were so adroit in their movements that not a 
suspicion was aroused in the "brilliant" minds of the Juniors and Fresh- 
men that secret sessions were being held and thus the plans formed by the 
boys were allowed to mature. 

As a result on Thursday morning of the same week you might have 
seen these eight senior Preps, stationed upon the gallery of the chapel 
awaiting the time when the last diploma would be given and the last de- 
gree conferred. 

You might have also noticed the Freshman class, which outnumbered 
the incoming Freshies two to one, occupying a position nearly opposite 
them watching their every movement. 

Both parties were seemingly agitated and a close observer would have 
decided that a storm long pent up would soon burst forth despite the fact 
that the most important part of the graduation exercises were now being 

But the Preps, soon regained their former composure and with the new 
class yell upon the tips of their tongues and the crimson ribbon secreted 
in their pockets calmly awaited the time for action. 

The supreme moment has now arrived and after President Roop has 
conferred the last degree they give freedom to the imprisoned forces in 
their lungs and startle the audience by "beautifully rendering" the follow- 
ing yell — 

Hip, Rah ! Boom, Rah ! Hur, Rah ! Re, 

1902, L. V. C. 
Hip, Yell ! Rip, Yell ! Zip, Yell ! Zu, 
CriiiLson, Crimson, 1902. 

In another moment the concealed colors are displayed and eight yards of 
crimson are flying from the coats of eight of L. V. C.'s new born Fresh- 

But, look ! What means the consternation prevailing among the stu- 
dents who have lately become Sophomores and Seniors. If you desire an 
answer to your question turn your eyes upon the flag pole on the cupola. 
There from its very summit the crimson flag of the baby Freshman class 
is floating, announcing the birth of a new class and waving a last farewell 
to the Class of '98. These were the gifts the Class of '02 presented to the 
surprised Sophomores and the chagrined Seniors in honor of its advent 
into Lebanon Valley College. 

The opening of the Fall terra found us, the smallest class in the insti- 
tution, ready to appropriate to our use the verdant robes discarded by 
the "swell heads" just one year above us, and prepared to manfully 
shoulder the responsibilities devolving upon us as we were about to make 
a start in attempting to thoroughly master the studies in the Freshman 

A few months had scarcely rolled by until we became accustomed to 
the slights and slurs hurled at us by the upper classmen and learned to 
take them as a matter of course and consider the source, and to believe 
that to "Do others before they do you," is the best policy; and accord- 
ingly decided to repay these insults with compound interest which we did 
at the first opportunity. 

But all in all we can find no serious faults with our experience as 
Freshmen and when we remember that in order to become Seniors we 
must at some time take the rubs. We look forward to a time, only a few 
months hence, when we may join the majority and assist in removing the 
verdure from the countenances of those poor ill treated students known 
as Freshmen. 

We are sorry to state that during the present year we have lost two 
charter members, one of these leaving college at the close of the Fall 
term, the other, who, because of his fast trotting, outdistanced us, and 
joined the rear ranks of the "swift" Sophomores. Shortly afterwards, 
however, four new members were added to our roll, increasing not only 
our numbers but placing in our midst some of the most brilliant minds in 
the institution. 

We are a small, peculiar, and yet I dare say fortunate class. A more 
gentlemanly class is not to be found; for, not a single lady, nor a married 
one either, has passed through the mazes of our initiation. 

We are always unanimous in all our decisions. You can find no dis- 
satisfaction or quibbling prevailing among vis, and besides we are reputed 
to be the most quiet and best organized class of the school. Perhaps the 
reason for these wholesome and essential qualities existing among us, 
may be attributed to some statement that may have preceded. 

Our ability in athletics is well evinced by three '02 men playing on the 
Varsity baseball team last Spring, and one playing as substitute on foot- 
ball team last Fall. 

Our day as Freshmen is far spent. The time will soon arrive when 
we will be looked upon as Sophomores and may we as we step higher each 
succeeding year continue to improve in our splendid work and so be an 
honor to our beloved College, to ourselves and to the class of 1902.

RESIDENT HERVIN ULYSSES ROOP prepared for college 
in Steelton High School and was graduated from Lebanon 
Valley College. After graduating he taught English in the 
Shippensburg State Normal School. He then took a course in 
philosophy at Wooster University where he was given the de- 
gree of Doctor of Philosophy. But with his characteristic energy and 
zeal he continued to pursue his studies at Cornell and Clark Universities, 
taking a special line of work in each. He next spent some time in the 
National School of Oratory in Philadelphia, and was for a time a student 
of Philosophy and Pedagogy in the University of Pennsylvania. 

Dr. Roop was elected Professor of English and History in Ritten- 
house Academy, Philadelphia, which he resigned after a short time to 
accept the Superintendency of the Sabbath-School Normal Work of the 
State of Pennsj'lvania. 

Dr. Roop's successes since he has been graduated from our College 
caused the able men of Lebanon Valley to keep a critical eye on him, and 
in 1897 they decided that lie was the man to be her President. They were 
neither mistaken nor disappointed in their choice, for during his short ad- 
ministration he has more than doubled the number of students, has ex- 
tended the old courses, organized a new one, and built a new Conservatory 
of Music. The Doctor is in constant demand as a public speaker. Leb 
anon Valley's interests are secure with such a leader as the worthy Doctor, 
and by reason of his untiring energy and enterprise Lebanon Valley will 
soon be brought to greater prominence than she has ever in her history 



IRECTOR HERBERT OLDHAM was born in the early fifties; 
he entered the Christ Church Cathedral as choir boy at the age 
of six years, under Sir R. P. Stewart, having the latter as his 
teacher in piano and pipe organ.. When seventeen years old 
he left the choir, taking a position as organist to one of the 
London Churches, and as assistant in one of the large music stores. 
Prof. Oldham studied in London under Sir G. Macfarren, Sir John Stainer 
and Signor Raudegger, the celebrated vocal teacher. Leaving London he 
went to Frankfort, studying under the late Joachim Raff, from thence to 
Paris where he was one of the pupils of Emil Harberdier. Went as or- 
ganist to one of the large churches in Montreal, married there and after 
several years had just returned to London when he was engaged as solo 
pianist to Camillo Urso, the great violinist, in her tour through America 
in 1883-4. While on this tour Prof. Oldham played in two hundred and 
ninety-seven cities or towns of the Union. On the completion of the 
season he went to Toledo, Iowa, as director of the conservatory in con- 
nection with Western College. He remained there six years and then 
took a position in Southern Iowa. Moving from there to Lincoln, Neb., 
thence to Le Mars, Iowa, from whence he came to Annville. 

Prof. Oldham was one of the originators and president of the Iowa 
Music Teachers' Association. And, although never having graduated 
from the London College of Music (the school in his time being in its in- 
itiatory stages), the faculty of the same elected him representative and 
examiner for the State of Iowa. 

The Society of Science, Letters and Arts elected Prof. Oldham an 
Honorary Life Fellow and one of the executive board.

MiTSic Department has been in connection with the college 
since its opening, and has had fine success. Last year a friend 
of the college announced his intention of donating a separate 
Music Hall to the college authorities. This hall is being built 
and will be ready for occupancy by September. It is a fine 
brown stone building, three stories high, and will contain an auditorium 
with a capacity of seven hundred, the director's office and teaching 
rooms, library, ten practice rooms and four society halls. The practice 
rooms will be furnished with pianos and the auditorium will contain two 
pianos and a large pipe organ. The attendance this year at the Conserva- 
tory is over thirty-seven per cent, more than that of last year, and with 
the added facilities which this hull will give, we predict the most flatter- 
ing success for it in the future. 

The subjects taught in the Conservatory are: Piano, Pipe Organ, 
Reed Organ, Voice, Violin, Mandolin, Guitar, and Stringed Instruments, 
Harmony, Composition, History of Music, Theory, Glee and Chorus 
Singing, French, German, Art Drawing and Painting, Painting on China, 
etc. Students desiring to graduate in music have also to pass an exam- 
ination in the various elementary English branches, and in French or 
German. The course in each subject is the highest possible, and complete 
in every detail. 

The Director also holds a summer school for ten weeks from the mid- 
dle of June to the close of August. Any one can procure the programs 
of the various recitals, etc., and the separate conservator}' catalogue by 
addressing Prof. H. Oldham at Annville. 

Recitals, Concerts, etc 

Recitals are given every term by the students and members of the 
Faculty, and concerts by visiting organizations.

History of CL. a. 


HE Clioniaii L,iterary Society was organized in 1871, under the 
influence of Miss Sarah Burns of the Class of 1873. The mem- 
bership at first was very small owing to the small number of 
lady students in the Hall, as the privilege of membership was 
limited to boarding students only. The meetings were then 
held in the small room No. 23, on the third floor, the society possessing 
neither furniture nor books. 

The members of the Society soon gained the consent of the President 
of the Institution to admit the ladies of town as members of the Society. 
After increasing their membership they immediately began to furnish their 
hall. Miss Burns presented a book-case and some books to the Society 
for a library. 

The first public entertainment given by Clionians, was held Commence- 
ment Week, June g, 1874. 

In the Fall Term of 1875 there occurred in the Ladies' Hall the death 
of Miss Fannie Burtner, one of the first members of the Society. 

In 1876 the time of the public entertainment of the Society was changed 
to Ttianksgiving evening, as being nearer the time of its organization. 

During 1876 and 1877 the members of the Society began soliciting 
funds for the furnishing of the present Hall. After papering and painting 
the room was handsomely furnished; so well was this work done that after 
twenty years it remains with only the addition of the beautiful statue of 
Minerva, presented by Miss Althea Fink-Merick, and a piano purchased 
by members of the Society in April, 1891. An interesting event in the 
history of the Society was the Quarto Centennial Anniversary held Nov- 
ember 26, 1896. 

The regular sessions of the Society are held every Friday evening of 
the term, when interesting literary and musical programs are rendered by 
its members. Two evenings of each term are spent in joint session with 
the gentlemen's societies. May the Clios ever be faithful to their motto, 
' ' I Hrtiite et Fide. ' '

KING called upon to write the history of the Kalozetean Liter- 
ary Society, I enter upon the pleasure with a great deal of re- 
luctance. I say with reluctance not because I would shirk 
my duty, neither because I am not thrilled with sufficient 
Kalozetean enthusiasm, nor because the history left by my 
Kalo. brethren, for me to trace, is not a noble one; but, fearing lest this 
attempt shall not reflect sufficient credit on those who made it, and with 
the thought that I ere long shall be deprived of the privilege of being di- 
rectly associated with the society I love. 

On the other hand I deem it a great pleasure to trace the history of 
an organization whose ties are more binding, whose associations are 
more pleasant, and whose influences are more lasting, to the man with 
the true society spirit, than any other organization with which he may be 
connected while at college. 

In the year 1877, when Lebanon Valley College was enjoying a sea- 
son of prosperity, a number of the students realizing that there is nothing 
that tends toward the elevation and amelioration of the individual so 
much as a literary training; and desiring to pi'ovoke a greater interest 
than is usually manifested where there is but one society, decided to or- 
ganize another society. 

Accordingly a number of students met for that purpose, and as a re- 
sult of that meeting, January 15th, marks the permanent organization of 
the Kalozetean Literary Society. 

The organization resulted in the election of the following officers: 
President, H. S. Kephart; Vice-president, J. L- Whitmoyer; Secretary, 
A. P. Strayer; Treasurer, S. P. Light; Chaplain, S. T. Mower; Critic, 
H. Marquett ; Sergeant-at-Arms, C. Dougherty; Editor, N. P. Moyer. 

The society library was started by Mr. C. E. Ranch, some valuable 
books have been added, and the librar}' at present contains nearly one 
thousand volumes. 

In the year 1885, an application for a charter was made in the court 
of Lebanon county by the members of the society. The charter was 
granted by the court in June and filed. The society received the charter 

September 2, 1885, and has since enjoyed the powers and privileges of 
a corporation, or body politic in law. The society is indebted to Prof. 
McFadden for the name "Kalozetean," which was adopted at his sug- 
gestion. The college authorities gave the society the privilege of equip- 
ing a gymnasium, after a great amount of labor, and at a risk of moving 
the foundation of the main college building, our boys succeeding in ex- 
cavating a sufficient amount of rock to form a pit. While the Gymna- 
sium has not been equipped as well as it should have been, we can assure 
the students and friends that it will be within the next year. Every year 
on the first Friday of April the society celebrates its anniversary by hold- 
ing public exercises in the College Chapel. I regret that I am unable to 
trace, for the readers, the various interesting incidents of our regular Fri- 
day evening meetings, but space will not permit. It is true that at times 
in the history of the society the membership has not been so large, but, 
believing the truest test of a society's worth is not in numbers, nor in the 
hall, but in the kind of men the society turns out, we have been laboring 
under that principle. Laboring under our motto : '' Palma ?ion Sine Pul- 
vere," which is tinged with red and old gold, we have met and mastered 
many difficulties. We are stimulated to gain more victories, by keeping 
the motto constantly before us, not only while in college, but also after 
we leave its halls. Remembering the position gained by our Kalo. 
brothers, for our motto; to keep it in that position, to bear it aloft as they 
bore it before we received it and to keep it as worthy of being born aloft, 
as it was when we received it, is tlie ambition of every Kalo.

HE worthj' aim of the Societ}', the noble spirit which its name 
embodies and the honorable sentiment of its motto, seems a 
sufficient guarantee of an illustrious history. 

The sessions of the Society which are held every Friday 
evening are divided under two heads, literary and business. 

By the aid of an organ procured March 4, 1881, the programs are 
varied with instrumental as well as vocal music. The executive commit- 
tee prepares the literary program two weeks before its rendition, and the 
critic, who reports at the close of the program, is urged to discard all 
timidity, and to criticise firmly and minutely but in an impartial and fra- 
ternal spirit. 

One feature of unusual interest in the literary' work is the joint session 
with the Clionian Society once each term. 

A business session is held at the close of each literary program ; in the 
earlier daj's of the Society there was little interest in this department, there 
being no business other than that incidental to a purely literary fraternity 
But to-day the Society affords opportunities for business qualifications 
which no student of L. V. C. outside of the P. L. S. enjoys ; indeed its 
training is almost equal to that of a commercial school. Among its most 
important business enterprises are the "Lecture course" and the "College 
Forum." The society also has a fine large library. At an early date an 
endowment fund was started and has gradually grown very encouragingly. 

In the beautiful escutcheon of the society is the very soul of Philokos- 
niianism — the white back-ground implies purity, one of the colors. Blue, 
is emblematic of truth, and Gold, the other color, is symbolical of the un- 
questionable worth of the Society, the Battle-axes represent the weapons 
which its discipline affords, while the form of the whole, a Shield, is sig- 
nificant of the security which fidelity to its principles guarantees. 

The success of Philokosmiauism in the past is only equalled by its 
present prosperity. 

Eleven names have been added to the roll since the beginning of this 
college year, making a total of forty-four active members. 

May success continue to attend the Philokosmian Literary Society and 
the College which it helps to represent.

iM Donley and Fred Weston had been staunch friends ever since 
they had been so closely associated during their college course. 
This had been their second year at college and during their 
stay they had won many friends. 

They had been studying for quite a time and on this even- 
ing Tim, unable to get the question for which he had been working so 
hard, threw aside his book and walked to the window. 

The night was beautiful and the brilliancy of the moon and stars re- 
minded him of that never-to-be-forgotten night, which he had so often re- 

Fred laid aside his Latin and, walking over to Tim, quietly laid his 
hand on his shoulder, but not being noticed he asked, "What are you 
dreaming of, Tim.'' 

"I have been thinking of what happened two years ago to-night, 
slowly replied Tim. 

"I knew a fine girl that I might be engaged to now, but for my 
smaller brother." 

Fred smiled. "Will you not tell me about it ?" he asked. 

"It may not interest you very much, but if you will listen, I will tell 
you . ' ' 

"Who is the girl ? Fred asked. 

"You wouldn't know her. Her name is Helen and, she's a Senior 
at one of the colleges in Vermont. She was visiting one of my friends 
on 32nd street, and in a short time she became a great favorite. We soon 
became very good friends and we spent many happy hours together. 

"She had many other admirers and I felt very proud of her when we 
went out together." 

"The young lady with whom she was staying had made arrange-' 
ments to give a dance in her honor, the night before she left, which hap- 
pened to come off the ist of April." 

"I went to one of our fashionable florists and secured a very beautiful 
bunch of American Beauties. I carried my flowers home and paid my 

brother to take them to her house. The little fellow was bent on fooling 
every one possible, on account of it being the ist of April. I was one of 
his victims. 

"He exchanged the magnificent roses for a bunch of artificial flowers 
of different colors. Then he very neatly tied the box as before and pre- 
sented the box with my card to Helen. 

"I had imagined over and over again how I should see her that even- 
ing carrying my flowers and dancing so often with me, for by this time I 
had begun to think quite often of Helen. But when I arrived instead of 
being greeted as usual I received a stiff nod, and instead of my beautiful 
roses she carried violets. I could not understand the situation and 
several times tried to speak to her, but without any success. 

"That night I went home all alone with a very sad heart. In the 
morning I went to call but she had gone home on the early express. 

"We are still friends but she is now engaged to a professor of the 

C. Madie Burtner, 1900. 

A ^I^etcf) from Life. 

HK was going to college, and had decided upon a co-ed ; she had 
passed her Exams, and her trunks were packed. He, too, was 
going to college, had entered creditably, and had packed his 
trunks, after a fashion. But he was not going to a co-ed, in 
fact, he decidedly disapproved of such institutions. "You see, 
Bess," he said, "girls are very nice in their place, and I like YOU an aw- 
ful lot, but a fellow can't have them around all the time. They can't do 
the things a man can do, you know. The truth is," announced the man 
of seventeen, with a straightening of the shoulders and an expression of 
firm conviction on his face, "I don't approve of co-education." "What 
do you mean when you say that they can't do what men can do? I am 
sure that in co-educational institutions, the women compete very fairly 
with their class-brothers." "Oh yes, they study hard enough, I guess, but 
after a while, they are apt to pall upon one." It was not surprising that 
she opened her eyes at this ; he had called upon her every night for a 
week to say good-bye. But he was too much interested in his cause to 
notice her changing expression, besides, they were old friends, and he 
knew what she looked like. "I imagine in such a place, that a fellow 
would be having to fix up all the time. And then, there are the evenings." 
A foreigner newly initiated into the significant depths of our dear old 
English might not have discovered any special interest in this last remark, 
but to Jack it brought a fascinating, an alluring vision, a vision which he 
spent the next few minutes in contemplating, of a festive board — he didn't 
know exactly what made it festive — but a row of shoes was supported by 
its edge, beautiful curls of blue smoke permeated the atmosphere, and the 
twanging of a banjo afforded a steady and harmonious accompaniment to 
the gentle and even flow of conversation . In fact, the entire atmosphere 
of this vision was delightfully masculine. 

In the meanwhile, Elizabeth's logical little brain was summing up 
the arguments. "The boys must keep their shoe-strings tied, and girls 
don't put their feet on the table" so far completed the list. Their joint 
knowledge of several triumphs in the intellectual sphere, among their 

circle of feminine friends, and a shadowy suggestion of another doubt — of 
stolen laurels, perhaps — that might be lurking in his mind occurred to her 
and she did not put it down. 

"By the way. Jack," broke in Elizabeth, "have you ever tried co- 
education?" "N-no," answered the prospective Freshman, "but Carlton 
I.itz has told me what it is like." "But Mr. L,itz has never been to a 
co-ed school either, has he? ' "No but he doesn't like it any better than 
I do." 

"Logical, certainly," mused Bess, with a little laugh. But Jack was 
too happy to notice, and besides, it was time for him to be going. They 
parted in excellent spirits. 

Two weeks time brought Elizabeth a figurative and glowing account 
of all the charms of this most charming bachelor university. She ansvi^ered 
it — as soon as she had time — with an equally cheerful description of the 
work and the walks, rides, lectures, receptions, musicals, friends, etc., 
that were making her life so well worth the living just then. Then came 
a long silence; Jack was being initiated, the bachelors were making their 
presence felt and Jack was most undeniably one of them. But he was 
honorable and paid his debts, so a sufficient time brought our heroine 
another missive, very interesting and full of classroom gossip, but showing 
signs of the froth's beginning to settle. 

But to Elizabeth's surprise, before she had yet replied, the same post- 
mark appeared again in her mail pile. Jack wanted her photograph, and 
as soon as she could send it. He even offered to exchange. She hadn't 
any just then, but not objecting to having his, sent him a Kodak speci- 
men, which was about as satisfactory as Kodak specimens generally are. 

The following is an extract from the last letter Bess received from her 
bachelor friend ? 

"I can hardly wait until the holidays come, to get home again. One 
doesn't see a soul here, from morning until night, but fellows, fellows, 
fellows. Stag parties are jolly, you know, but they get monotonous. I 
want a nice long talk with you when I come home."

Wl)en the Roses Come Ag'ain. 

When the roses come again 
In the beauty of the spring-. 
Shedding- smiles of love and cheer 
Over any living thing ; 
How the trees break forth in joy. 
Pealing out their g-lad refrain, 
Making man and beast rejoice, 
When the roses come again. 

When the roses come ag-ain 
To the garden fresh and green. 
And the tender buds unfold 
In the bright and calm serene; 
There's an impulse fills our breast, 
Driving out all grief and pain, 
Telling us of days of yore, 
When the roses come again. 

In thy smiles, oh gentle rose, 
Thou hast hid for us a charm; 
As thv petals open wide 
In the sunshine clear and warm. 
As thy fragrant sweetness floats 
O'er each mountain, hill and g-len. 
So our lives are redolent 
When the roses come again. 

— H. E. Spessakd, '00 

Spring time. 

Farewell ye Northern winds 

From out your weather hole; 

No more thy fetters bind 

The youngster's merry soul. 

The blue bird blithe and gay, 
Now perches on the bough; 

The farmer old and gray. 

Gets out his rusty plough. 


The anxious cows are seen 
To look across the meads, 

So fresh with vernal green, 

Not choked by thorns or weeds. 

The hen is on her nest, 

The ducks are in their glee, 

The robin's yellow breast 

Has found the cherry tree. 

The sharp wood-pecker's bill 

Peeps out the weathered hole; 

The blackbirds deck the hill. 
Like many lumps of coal. 

The honey-suckle buds 

Beneath the shady bowers, 

With velvet covered studs, 

Throw kisses at the flowers. 

The rose's crimson cheeks, 

With smiles of lovely grace. 

That seemed as veiled for weeks, 
Makes glad the mother's face. 

The snowy apple-ti'ees 

Arraj'ed in fullest bloom. 

Invite the honey bees 

From out their waxened room. 

The housemaids on their knees, 

In every garden round. 
Are sticking plants, and peas, 

And onions in the ground. 

All nature seems to waken 

By husky plowmen's voices; 

The sparrow, long forsaken, 
From out the stack rejoices. 

We loved to see, I trow, 

The white and fleecy gown, 

But such a garment now 

Would make the meadows frown. 

Farewell, ye Northers drear 

From out your weather hole; 

For springtime now is here. 
To brighten every soul. 


Green drow tl)e Frest)men. 

With Apologies to Robekt Bukns.) 

Green grow the Freshmen, O ! 
(ireen grow the Freshmen, O 1 
The freshest hours that e'er I spent, 
Were spent among' the Freshmen, O ! 

There's naught but trots on every han', 
In every one their classes, O; 
They're bachelors, every single man. 
They can na get a lassie, O 1 

This Freshie race, may lasses chase. 

And lasses still may fly them, O; 

And when they're faked and by them shaked, 

Their heart will still annoy them, O ! 

But give a Fresh an hour at e'en 
His arms about his dearie, O, 
And Senior girls and Senior men, 
May a' gae to guinea, O. 

For they say douce, they sneer at this, 
They're lowest of the classes, O. 
The slyest Fresh you ever saw. 
He feared to kiss the lasses, O. 

Auld Lebanon Vallej' wrought us all. 
Her quickest work the Seniors, O, 
She tried her hand on Fresh's and Soph's, 
And then she made the Juniors, O. 

Tl)e Wf)ite and tl)e ^lae. 

(Tune, "Stak Spanhled Bannek.") 

Oh, say can you see, at the break of the day 

The emblem we love, so pure and so true : 

As the Sun-god dismantles his toga of gray. 

And greets with a smile the white and the blue; 

And the soft gentle breeze as it floats through the trees. 

Unfurls her aloft o'er the moss-covered eaves. 

Cho. — Proudly still waves the banner of white and of blue 

O'er the moss-covered eaves and the hearts tried and true. 

This the emblem we hail floats above L. V. C. 

'Neath the "Star Spang-led Banner" the pride of our nation. 

From reg-ions afar flock the students to see 

While the hemlocks oft bow in sincere adoration ; 

For truth, wisdom, might, we each student will fight, 

The motto displayed in her hues dazzling bright. 

Cho. — Oh, who then shall conquer and who shall svibdue 

The heroes that march 'neath the white and the blue ? 

Many times have we strolled through meadows so gfreen, 

With our sweethearts so fair in the twilight's first gleaming ; 

And the pale glimmering moon shines upon us unseen. 

As we view throug-h the maples the candle Ug^ht streaming. 

But we anxiously gaze through the dim clouded haze 

To see still afloat our dear emblem of praise. 

Cho. — Yes we eagerly look for the white and the blue 

O'er the moss-covered eaves and the hearts tried and true. 

We toil o'er our lessons in L,atin and Greek 
And sink 'neath the weight of our toug-li Mathematics : 
In our logic, sometimes, we're too awkward to speak, 
While we flunk on some problem we get in Mechanics ; 
But if we will but climb through the ages of time, 
We'll reach the great summit of grandeur sublime. 

Cho. — 'Neath the standard we hail of the white and the blue 
That ever shall float o'er the hearts tried and the true. 

— H. F. Spessakd, '00. 

Jast Lil^e a ^ear Ago. 

I've wandered to old Annville, chum, 

I've joined in mirth and glee 

Upon the college campus, 

That nurtured you and me; 

I've g-one into the turnip patch 

With bag and kuife and hoe, 

While frost was on the pumpkin vines. 

Just like a year ago. 

The girls are not so green, dear chum. 

They just have lots to say: 

They send us fruit and chocolate cake 

Most every Saturdaj'. 

They patch my shirts and pantaloons. 

My coat and socks they sew, 

Just like a few kind-hearted girls 

Up here a year ago. 

The grub is just the same, dear chum, 

Old ham, and cheese, and gravy; 

The beans would be a splendid dish 

To feed the Spanish Navy. 

The mice steal crackers from the plate- 

An appetizing show — 

The flies go bathing in the tea. 

Just like a year ago. 

Our faculty is superfine. 
And Pres is just "Hot Scoot," 
He took the boys to Gettysburg 
And helped them all to root. 
He had me in his office twice 
To pay the bills I owe, 
And told me to be good again. 
Just like a year ago. 

I've gone into professor's room 

And stole his chairs away; 

I've swiped his pony from his drawer 

To see what he would say. 

I brought a buggy to his room 

And hitched up old Plato, 

Then took Demosthenes a ride 

Just like a year ago. 

I've wandered to the creek, dear chum. 
The story I'll not tell, 
About the green potato-patch 
And the fence o'er which she fell. 
I've visited the old church-3'ard, 
Its tombstones bending' low. 
And rested on the old stone fence 
Just like a year ago. 

I've seen a short-haired maiden fair. 
Blue-eyed and quite wide out, 
Ascend a wheel, and, turning- round. 
Yell out a raerrj' shout. 
When lovers standing just hard by 
Began to murmur low, 
'I guess we'll go to Lover's Leap 
Just like a year ago." 

The boys are all the same, dear chum, 

Old Huntzy's just as big. 

Of all the bread and meat he crams 

Indeed, he acts a pig. 

Solly's at the Sargant House; 

And bald is Harry Yohe; 

While Lichty gets the nightly-mare 

Just like a year ago. 

The ducking's just the same, old chum. 
While Rider plays the game. 
Whenever poor old "Pres" is ducked 
Brownmiller gets the blame. 
Sanders plays the autoharp, 
And Clipp the old banjo. 
While Davy beats the kettle-drum 
Just like a year .ago. 

Old Clipp has found another girl, 

But Snoke's is just the same; 

While Jones' sweetheart yotmg and fair 

Is soon to change^her name. 

Leah still is in suspense, 

And Mabel has a beau; 

While Spessard has no girl at all 

Not like a year ago. 

— H. E. S. '00. 

A Paroc(^^. 

As through the fields at eve I led 

My hope of future years. 

We fell out my gfirl and I 

O, we fell out, ''And that's no lie," 

And kissed again with tears. 

And blessings on the falling out 
That all the more endears. 
For iTiany times we have a scrap 
And kiss- again with tears. 

But when we reached that lonelj- spot 
We loved in other years, 
Where blooms the lovely golden rod, 
O, knelt we there upon the sod 
And kissed again with tears. 

Then leaning o'er the garden gate 
The smiling moon reveres 
By sending down its mellow light; 
And in that happy hour of night 
We kissed again with tears. 

And now I don't mind falling out 
My soul no longer fears; 
We look into each other's face 
And in one gentle fond embrace 
We kiss again with tears. 

-H. E. S. 

Peace be -31111. 

I rested on the bridge alone, 

When all was calm and still; 
The golden sun no long'er shone, 

'Twas hid behind the hill; 
When all at once I saw a cloud 

Just like a mountain high, 
That glistens in its snowy shroud 

Beneath the azure sky. 

It seemed to move unchanged in form 

Along the purple eaves; 
Not like the howling thunderstorms 

That spoil the golden sheaves; 
But slowly, almost motionless, 

Like tides upon the bay, 
It spread its bound'ries limitless 

And vanished with the day. 

Just then I let my thoughts go back 

To visions of the past 
When clouds seemed rolling o'er me black 

And dismal shadows cast, 
Just as the meads of amethj-st' 

Conceal the forest streams 
Beneath the thickly clouded mist 

That lingers like our dreams, 

So sweetest charms are sometimes found 

Beneath some face so sad. 
And all the smiles of nature round 

Can never make it glad; 
'Twas here I saw the sunbeam shine. 

Reflecting on the silvery line, — 
Sad one, "Peace be still." 

— H. E. S. 

A Fresl)ie's Dream. 

The freshie's been a dreamin' 
And what a funny dream ! 
'Tmust be a freshy feelin" 
To think that you's so green. 

A soph, he thinks he is, 
With a seed3' pumpkin head. 
When all at once, Gee whiz I 
The cows devoured him, dead. 

As on his bed he lay 
In quite a vacant mood, 
He saw in grand array 
A host of .Juniors stood. 

Jest look'e don't ye see 
Them Fo'ks so full o' glee ? 
That's jest the way I'll be 
When Junior, L,. V. C. 

And then all seemed as night. 
Just dark as dark could be; 
He saw there was a fight. 
But naught else could he see. 

When I's a Senior once 
Jest so'll I be hurled 
An edicated dunce 
To faketionize the world. 

I've often sat and fretted 
Cause we haven't got a lass; 
For 'tis to be regretted 
By this pensive Freshman class. 

Now what on earth's the reason 
Fer sich a class as this; 
We must be out o' season 
We cannot get a Miss. 

I guess it's likely this %vise 
That j'ou haven't got a gal; 
You failed to advertize 
In the Junior Annum,.

Janior R^ao^ble. 

HiLE the sun was showing his broad face over the eastern 
hills, playing in flickering shadows on the rapidly fading 
mossy bed beneath the college pines, the students, together 
with various members of the faculty, gathered before the 
Ladies' Hall anxiously awaiting some definite knowledge of 
tlie day's program. But just before the chartered trolley cars arrived from 
Lebanon to bear them away for a day of pleasure, badges were distributed 
upon which was printed, "Penryn, L. V. C's. Junior Ramble, Sept. 30, 
1898." Then large baskets, cans, boxes and other vessels containing vari- 
ous articles for the day's amusement were placed on the side-walk. The 
students then understood their mission there, and the morning air was 
immediately caused to echo with shouts of good-will to the Juniors. 

At 7:30 the heavily ladened cars were slowly moving out of Annville 
amidst shouts and ripples of laughter which were at times interspersed 
with the tones of that old familiar song, "We'll never go back to 
L. V.C." 

Soon the cars were scanning the miles over the iron bands through the 
inspiring breezes of Lebanon Valley's sunny slopes, surrounded by the 
glowing fields of nature's beauty and by running streams which seemed 
to whisper — joy to all ; while over the distant landscape were chasing 
darkened patches caused by the peaceful clouds passing beneath the golden 
sun. Everj'thing went well until a shrill sound heard from the rear of the car 
startled all. The car was immediately stopped by the heroic efforts of the 
niotorman and everyone gazed in curiosity to learn the cause ofthis pierc- 
ing shriek. A distressed looking boy leaped from the car and ran back 
along the track ; little Mason had lost his hat. 

They soon arrived at Donaghmore station where a chartered train was 
waiting toconvey them to the scene of their day's pleasure. The trolley 
cars were abandoned and all repaired to the train where they seated them- 
selves paired as to their congenial associations or in groups, planning 
various games and amusements for the day. 


The train soon rolled into the park, causing the forest to echo back 
the shrill sounds of the two steeds. About 9:30 the train halted in the 
midst of towering trees and greens of the forest, while a thousand birds 
voiced their soft notes in the morning air bidding welcome to their new 
guests. Before them the calm lake, in sheeted splendor, could be seen 
in the back ground. All nature seemed to foretell the pleasures of the 
day. Soon the park was alive with merry voices and ringing sounds of 
"Jolly Earthquakes" indulging in various amusements. Some strolled 
through the winding paths or tossed the spray high on the placid lake with 
their bending oars; some lingered in the shady nooks while others in- 
dulged in various games. 

At 12 o'clock the signal was given for refreshments when all were 
ushered into one of the large dining halls around the inviting tables 
which the Juniors had laden with meats, ices, cakes and fruits. Mr. W. 
G. Clippinger in his usual wit acted as toast-master. Toasts were made 
by Prof. Lehman in behalf of the faculty, Rev. R. R. Butterwick, 'oi, 
Mr. H. H. Baish, '02, Mr. A. E. Arniieid, '03, and Messrs. D. Stees and 
L,. D. Gass, "1912," after which all were invited out to the ball-field to 
witness a very interesting game played by the L. V. C. boys. 

After supper, all with renewed inspiration resumed the many pleasures 
of the day. The moon with her silvery lustre silently began to pour her 
great ocean of radiance through the wooded groves, on the lake which 
reflected from its pure serene depths the countless stars, while its surface 
was dotted with numerous boats sending out broadened waves from their 
oars to the murmuring shores, voicing the sentiments of the merry oars- 
men, who broke the stillness of the moonlight shades as they carelessly 
loitered along the verdant coast or ventured to view from the waters by the 
shady forest. So intense was the pleasure it afforded, so loathsome were 
they to leave its many joys, that, when the signal whistle blew for the last 
time, many were obliged to hasten their steps at an extraordinary pace to 
be counted with the chosen number from L. V. C. 

They returned to Annville at 9 o'clock, making the town ring once 
again, and acquainting it with their presence by singing in loud, clear tones, 
"Here's to L,. V. C." 

Who, enjoying its unbounded pleasures and inspiring breezes, could 
not but say, "It was good to be there." May the Junior Ramble of 1900 
be recorded on the pages of L. V. C's history as a day long to be remem- 
bered by all who were present, 

— O. G. Myers.
