Being a Remembrance Book of The Year 

Compiled by the Bizarre Staff and Published by the 
Junior Class of 1907 

Volume The Eighth 



An Honored Citizen, 

And President of the 

Trustee Board of Lebanon Valley College, 

We Dedicate Our Book, 


COLLEGE beloved, to thy dear name we raise 
In glad delight our loyal song of praise ; 
Thy sons and daughters worthy would we be, 
Forever blessing and adorning thee. 

In this our singing at thy sacred door 
We classmen proudly pledge forevermore, 
( >ur minds and hearts to thine unending good, 
Who long in trial hath so bravely stood. 

We'll shout thy name in triumph loud and far, 
We'll roll thy burdens past the farthest star, 
We'll help thee yearly to more honored place, 
O alma mater, blest and fair of face. 

May God unite us with his good control 
And make us truer, wiser, sure-of-soul, 
That we may keep unfaltering evermore 
The pledge we're singing at thy sacred door ! 

— N. C. Schlichter. 

Hon, William H, Ulrich 

ON. William H. Ulrich was born in Lower Swatara township, 
Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, June 7, 1884. His parents 
belonged to that thrifty class of citizens the Pennsylvania 
agriculturists. He was thus at once placed in an environ- 
ment of practical affairs in which he has distinguished himself and 
honored his county and parents. 

He was educated in the common school and in the Middletown 
Academy. A keen intellect and generous nature made him popular 
among his fellow students and college authorities. When he left he 
carried with him not only a diploma but the regard and respect of 
the faculty to the extent that when a vacancy in the faculty occurred 
he was chosen to fill it. Graduates attest his ability. 

After nine years spent in the teaching profession he turned his 
attention to civil engineering and for over twenty years this was to 
him a pleasant task the memories of which were brought to his mind 
recently while running a line surveyed forty-three years ago. 
Unbounded pluck, energy and sterling manhood have characterized 
the years of his business life. Pine buildings in this and other 
states and Washington, D. C, witness his business foresight and 
ability in making " Brown Stone " yield him revenues. His quaries 
are the largest in the State. His business ability and integrity made 
him cashier of the Farmers' Bank of Hummelstown. 

When the call came for a straightforward, conscientious man of 
known ability to represent their interests in the Legislature, we do 
not wonder that the citizens turned to him. His terms of service 
tell how well he discharged his duties in the interest of his constitu- 
ents. The prominent positions on boards and committees attest the 
esteem in which he was held by the House. 

For six years he was Prothonotary and Clerk of Court of Quar- 
ter Sessions. He was also one of the state commissioners to the St. 
Louis Exposition. Along with other duties he is Clerk of the Board 
of County Commissioners and Secretary of the Board of Prison In- 
spectors of Dauphin County. 

He was elected Trustee of Lebanon Valley College and at once 
became President of the Board. To the administration and interests 
of the college he has been a loyal friend. It is not surprising that 
this man successful in life and a friend to the institution, holds a 
warm place in our hearts, and that the Class of 1907 dedicates their 
annual to him. 


wif. in the 


NCE in the history of each class comes the time 
when it is their duty to produce some fitting 
memorial of their college days. We herewith 
present our contribution to our college history, the 
result of honest toil and industrious labor. It has been 
the object of the editors to treat all fairly and to produce 
a book that will be both instructive and entertaining. 
Had you been eggs we could have handled you with no 
greater care. Vos amamus o>?uics. We acknowledge our 
gratitude to all who have aided us. editors

IEWED prospectively the four years of the college course 
seem very long to the Freshman, but viewed retrospectively 
by the Senior, they seem very, very short. It seems but 
yesterday that we were Freshman and the four years have 
passed by so quickly that we can hardly realize that our college 
course is behind us and not before us. Yet, although those four 
years have flown so rapidly yet they have been pleasant, busy years 
for us: years in which we have builded into body, mind and especi- 
ally into character the best things of our college life. 

Taking in turn the burden handed down by preceeding classes 
we have tried to give of ourselves, of our own strength, our best to 
the services and duties which must come to every class in the busy 
activities of college life. We would be a poor class if we had re- 
ceived everything and had given nothing. Whenever called upon 
to fill any place; in any place of college activity, we have striven to 
fill that place well; to fill it worthily. We believe that our efforts 
have been crowned with success. Failures have come to us to be 
sure but we have tried always to overcome the obstacles which have 
come into our path. We have striven to over turn such obstacles and 
then have stood upon them and have reached up and got a grip on 
higher and better things. 

We are proud of our record. During our college generation we 
have seen great changes occur in the life of the college, times of 
apparent failure and times of sure success. Through it all however 
our class has always been loyal and true to our alma mater and we 
are sure that we have not been found wanting in any respect. 

But our college carrier is a thing of yesterday, and tomorrow 
we take our places as alumni of Lebanon Valley College. We are 
sure that we will be just as faithful to our duties then, just as true 
to our ideals, just as high in our purposes as we were during our 
college days. We have "sown" good "seed" during our college 
course and we feel confidant that a glorious ' ' reaping " will be ours 
tomorrow when we take our places in the busy world beyond the 
college walls. No matter where we may go however we are sure 
that you will with us always honor the " brown and gold" and will 
always thing kindly of the class of nineteen hundred and six. 



Four years of colleg'e life are o'er. 
At dear old L. V.C. 
And the plaoe'll seem no more, 
As it used to be. 

As we look back into the past, 
And see what we have won, 

And how we reached the goal at last, 
We're proud of all we've done. 

Our work, while here at L. V. C. 

We look back to with pride, 
We've done so much in classes, 

And very much beside. 

We go into the active life. 

In many fields they'll find us, 
And Hope that in the future years, 

Some result will stay behind us. 

Our Colleg'e days, their cares and joys, 
We look back to with pleasure, 

The time we spent among girls and boys, 
We always will remember. 

And as we leave the dear old College, 
We leave with happy hearts, 

And having gained a little knowledg-e, 
We leave for strang-er parts.

Shamokin, Pa. 
At the beginning of our college 
course, we numbered but three girls, 
but at the beginning of the second 
semester another maiden's name was 
added to our roll. Although she had 
missed a semester's work, she took an 
optimistic view of it and decided what 
she couldn't do one year she would the 
next. She was born at Shamokin, in 
1883 and after graduating from the 
Shamokin High school, she took post 
graduate work preparatory to entering 
college. One of her favorite occupa- 
tions is making fudge and crackerjack 
for her class brothers and — and one 
other. She is a member of the Student 
Volunteer Band and is president of the 
girls' Literaiy Society. She is the 
" most original girl " in College. 

Annville, Pa. 
William Eby Herrwas born at Ann- 
ville in the year 1884. After finishing 
his preparatory work in the Lebanon 
Valley Academy, he entered the college 
department the fall of 1902. Every- 
thing that he does he does to the best 
of his knowledge and ability. He is 
ever one of the most loyal, the most 
indiscreet and the most gallant of the 
sons of 1907. His motto for life at 
present seems to be, To dance where'er 
I can and when I cannot dance to talk 
of it. There are two things strangely 
contradictory about him. First what 
he does not know is hard to tell him, 

and what he does know, everybody else 
knows. He is an enthusiastic member 
of the Glee Club and has never been 
known to refuse any one a favor and 
performs many unsought kindnesses. 
To him the class of 1907 owes one of 
the most pleasant evenings ever spent 
by them as a class.

Looks are sometimes deceiving, so 
do not judge Freddie by his picture for 
on that occasion, he wore his Sunday 
face. His sober face, has won for 
him the name "Rabbi Fred," but 
faces are oftimes a mask and so it is 
in Freddie's case. He is a very ac- 
complished young man, he is skillful 
in using the typewriter, can give 
splendid Indian yells, which he learned 
during his residence in Iowa. But the 
best of all are his soprano solos, which 
have charmed many select audiences. 
He was born at Chambersburg, July 23, 
1883 but since then he has lived in at 
least four different states. Just how 
he happened to turn up at Lebanon 
Valley the fall of 1902 is hard to tell, 
but it may have been because of those 
before him, for he is the fourth Miller 
to be enrolled at Lebanon Valley.

Mr. Esbenshade began life contrary 
to the rest of the world. He was born 
in Paradise, May 19, 1883. However, 
sometime during his boyhood days, his 
family moved to the more earthly 
place of Bird-in-Hand. After spend- 
ing a year or so at Millersville State 
Normal School he entered Lebanon 
Valley Academy. He has always 
fought valiantly for 1907 both by word 
and by might, whenever necessary. 
His hobbies are his mandolin and mod- 
ern languages. He is the Dr. Jekyl 
and Mr. Hyde of our class. When he's 
"Espie,"he is not contented unless he 
is tormenting some one but when he's 
melancholy Jacques, then beware for 
every one who comes within five feet 
of him catches the blues. As manager 
of the 1906 foot ball team, he is work- 
ing hard to have a winning team.

York, Pa. 
Mr. Knauss was born October 30, 
1886 at York, Pa. and after graduating 
from the York High school, entered 
Lebanon Valley. He has been one of 
1907's most valiant sons, always ready 
to face whatever may co i e, even defeat 
if it is an honorable one. He has 
taken an active part in all athletics 
and this year has won his L. V. by 
playing forward on the 'Varsity team. 
As a member of the Forum staff he has 
done his work faithfully. At home, 
he is Edward, among the girls, Eddie, 
the boys call him Ed and the "angry 
mob" call him Siegel, so that you see 
he has many names. Mr. Knauss has 
belonged to the "Regulars" for three 
years and is willing to testify that it 
is the best organization around the place 
in his opinion. As a cornetist, it is 
his duty to lull the rest of the dormi- 
tory to sleep with soft sweet lullabies.

By the downward turn of the corners 
of his mouth, we would think him to 
be a pessimist, but he is not, far from 
it. The greatest pleasure in life for 
him is to talk. It requires no effort 
on his part, all that is needed is an 
audience and then the words flow as 
freely as a spring when the snows are 
melting. He has never been known to 
cram for an exam, but somehow or 
other, he always gets through, just how 
he does it is hard to tell. He was 
born in July 4, 1883, and claims 
Hagerstown, Md., as his birthplace. 
He tried academy life at Lebanon Val- 
ley and finding that the life was to his 
taste decided to take a college course. 
His favorite pastime is planning an 
eloquent defense of the Democratic 
party which is to arouse the hopes of 
the faithful . At present his hardest 
task is trying to establish the Forum 
on a financial basis.

Miss Peiffer is one of "Zion's happy- 
children" for she was born at Mount 
Zion in the year 1884 A. D. At least 
that is the date in the family Bible. 
Because she comes from ' • Lebnon-up, ' ' 
you might think she is " Dutch," but 
she isn't. "Pife" is always in for a 
jolly good time, and even under the 
most provoking circumstances, makes 
the best of everything. "Once a 
friend always a friend," has been her 
motto from childhood, and for friend- 
ship's sake she has fought many bat- 
tles that were not her own. For this 
she believes she will be rewarded some 
day, and we think so too. She is one 
of the Bizarre artists and is a specia- 
list in the use of the camera. 

Lebanon, Pa. 
Mr. Sprecher was born on that vague, indescribable place a farm, near 
Cleona. However, environment always influences a mans' life and those 
early days of grubbing 
for potatoes, must have 
taught him how to grub 
for Greek roots which 
he does very success- 
fully. He is the baby 
of our class as he was 
born on July 21, 1887 
and besides this he is 
also our bashful boy. 
It has been said that he 
grubs for Greek roots 
but while he does it he 
calls down, blessings on 
the head of the man 
who composed them. 
As yet he has only made his debut in the social world as a single man, but 
he is young yet and the years will tell. 



Annville, Pa. 
"Billee," who was born at Galin, 
Ohio, Janary 5, 1885, has a roving dis- 
position. During her life time she 
has traveled over the greater part of 
our nation, and has dwelt in at least 
four different states. The class of '06 
have styled her "the most popular 
girl" at Lebanon Valley, and the truth 
of this is pretty clearly established by 
a long line of "ex-bishops. " Many a 
heart has been gladdened by her voice, 
for "Billee" is the best singer of our 
girls. She is a senior in music this 
year, and we regret very much that we 
will lose her from 'our number next 
year. However, we wish her happi- 
ness and success at Mt. Holyoke.

Red Lion, Pa. 

Mr. Herrman was born February 24, 
1885 at Red Lion, Pa., and after ser- 
ving three years as a reporter and after 
graduating from the York Colleigate 
Intsitute, he entered Lebanon Valley, 
the fall of 1903. His nickname as 
Kaiser probably originated from the 
same source as 

"Here comes the mighty A~os Herr- 
With blood and thunder in his eyes." 

He had many hair breadth escapes 
as reporter of the York Gazette and 
one of the least of these was a single 
handed encounter with a York County 
highway robber. His politics are 
Democratic for he was born and raised 
a Democrat in a Democratic stronghold 
of a Democratic County. It is but 
fitting and proper that a man of such 
a fighting dispoistion and of such pro- 
nounced views should win for himself 
the position of center on the 'Varsity 
foot ball team. As editor of the 
Forum, we wish him success.

Mr. Showers, our brother from over 
the way is not a free born American 
citizen but claims Paris, Ontario as his

Although his loyalty to Uncle Sam 
might be questioned as he has only 
dwelt under the Stars and Stripes since 
1900, yet we feel sure that his loyalty 
to the crimson and steel cannot be. 
He received his preparatory training 
at Gait Collegiate Institute. He en- 
tered the present class in the fall of 
'04, and has always ranked with the 
foremost of the class. Mr. Showers 
is not only an able student, but also 
takes a great interest in the promotion 
of athletics. At present he is Presi- 
dent of the Athletic Association. He 
is ever ready with his joke or quick 
retort to any question put to him. As

Cedar Lane, Pa. 
Mr. Gehr is known better as "Roscoe" but just where this name originated 
is uncertain however there may be some connection with "Roscoe, the snake 
eater" and Mr. Gehr's 
insatiable appetite. He 
is the dreamer of our 
class and like many 
other day dreamers, his 
dreams change with the 
years. In his Freshman 
year, he dreamed of 
going on the platform 
as a temperance lectu- 
rer; in his Sophomore 
year, he saw himself 
on a platform deliver- 
ing a Shakespearean 
lecture before a vast 
audience; the dream of 
his Junior year is to surpass Mansfield, and his Senior dream, well that is 
not dreamed as yet. Mr. Gehr was born at Cedar Lane, September 8, 1£73 
and after preparing in the L. V. Academy, he entered the college department. 
He has always been interested in athletics of all kinds and has always used 
his influence for g-ood and in consideration of this, has been elected President 
of the Y. M. C. A. 



NOTHER year has flown swiftly by and but one year lies 

between us and our life work. All too swiftly have the 

years passed and all too soon w T ill our College days be ended 

and then the troubles of today will be trivial things and 

our pleasures, only happy memories. 

How far away the year 1907 seemed, and how far above us the 
Juniors seemed when we were Freshman. Now 7 it seems ages ago 
since we had our first color rush, and since we played the class of 
1906 in base ball, but in reality it was but three years ago. 

There were a great many things which happened during our 
Sophomore year but among other pleasant things to remember, two 
of the most pleasant are the evenings spent at the home of Will 
Herr and Max Lehman. The evening Mr. Herr entertained us, 
never were Sophomores more gallantly conducted te a feast. The 
Freshman acted as our boby guard and instead of carrying us away 
rom the feast, they conducted us to it. There is no telling what 
their motive was but everything seems to prove that they feared 
we had not told them the right place. 

Then few of our boys will never forget the night they slept on 
the foundation of the Administration Building and on the library 
tables, but, however, the long, sleepless night was repaid, for, when 
morning came no posters were in sight anywhere, except two below 
the Freshmen girl's windows, in the girl's dormitory and they 
suffered the fate of the others. 

Our base ball schedules, last spring, were an innovation and 
that it was a good example is shown by the class of 1908, with their 
football schedule and the class of 1909 with their baseball schedule 
following our example. 

So far our Junior year has been the busiest one of our college 
course, but the busier we are and the harder we work, the more 
we enjoy our play hours, which make the days of our college course 
the happiest ones of our lives. Our Junior year is marked by twoprin- 
cipal events, our bauquet which w T as held at the Colonial Hotel, 
Lebanon and where we all spent a pleasant evening, and the giving 
of Sheridans, " The Rivals." We are the first Junior Class of Leb- 
anon Valley to give a play and so worked hard to make it a success. 

There are so many things that a class can do which will keep up 
the spirit of good fellowship and there is nothing so pleasant as to 
look back into the past and think of the many happy hours spent 
together so let us as class fill the next year and a half with many 
pleasant memories. The poet has sung, " that a sorrom's crime of 
sorrow is remembering happier things;" this may be true but it is 
for us to make our schooldays such that though we may regret that 
they are gone, yet we will ever be glad that they have been. 


Nulla Ret Sc 




AS I mused on time in its flight, 
Three years of sunshine and gladness, 
Like the day by darkness of night, 
O'ershadowed was I by sadness. 

But why dwell o'ermuch on sorrows ? 
Earth was not made a home for gloom ; 
Time ever has blissful tomorrow's 
Bury the past in memory's tomb. 

Eulogize fair victories won, 

In faithful search to know the truth, 

By Crimson and Steel. 'Nobly well done" 

Thy Master's word, " excellent youth ! " 

Our brave and honest teachers taught, 
Envy not who by chance may rise 
To dizzy heights of fame, unwrought, 
Those who work gain the worthy prize. 

Our hearts beat true for L. V. C. 

Like the deep stream's, calm, endless flow, 

With faith, and constant loyalty 

Our love for her no end shall know. 

When the last school day's work is done 
Dear college ties we then must sever. 
Soon, ah, too soon ! that time will come 
Though we part the world to better.

N casting about for some appropriate quotation with which to 

begin this "eventful history," the writer first thought of 

" Arrna virurnque cano." This, however, was abandoned 

as too classical, for the spirit of '08 has always been 

essentially modern. 

Our class motto, although classic in form has the modern idea 
of " preparation " in it. So " Ad omnia parati," or in other words 
" semper parati " fto which the professors can testify) seemed after 
all to be the best line with which to introduce the history of a class 
which has always been progressive in all its undertakings. 

Somewhat more than a year ago a score of young ladies and 
young men entered the class lists at L. V. C. and threw down the 
orange and blue glove to the class of '07. The class fight which fol- 
lowed was short and " sweet " and ended in a decided victory for '08. 

The next great event was the Sophomhre — Freshman foot ball 
game, of which, the score — 29 to — demonstrated that we had been 
true to our motto and were well " prepared." We also defeated the 
Sophomores in basket ball. 

Then came the class sleigh ride and the Sophomores vainly 
attemped to keep some of our members away. 

The days slipped away to Commencement, while our base ball 
challenge remained " on the table" in the Sophomore class minutes. 
So our Freshman year ended, and we parted, full of hope, on the 
threshold of our Sophomore year. 

This year we lost eight of our members and gained only one. 
But although we missed them sadly, our spirit was nothing daunted, 
and with the same enthusiasm of the year befox-e, we entered and 
won the foot ball game with the Freshmen. Later on we defeated 
'09 in basket ball therebp winning our fourth consecutive victory in 
class athletics. 

In the winter term we challenged the other classes to debating 
contests and so we can claim the honor of starting inter-class debat- 
ing at L. V. C. 

We as a class have always believed in spirit, — not in " waiting 
until the spirit moves us," but in meeting it half way or even more. 
We believe in class spirit as inducing and increasing college spirit. 
And so we have entex*ed evexything with spirit and are well x*epre- 
sented in the vaxuous activities of the college. In athletics, we have 
membei\s on the vax'sity foot ball, basket ball and base ball teams. 
We ax-e well x-epresented in the Literary Society, in the Christian 
Association, on the Forum Staff, and at the social functions in the 

And so we remain at the end of our Sophmore year, always 
pi'epared to try to do our best and to be an honor to old L. V. 


THIS year has been a happy one 
Spent here at L. V. C. 
O, may the years now coming on 
As Joyous ever be. 

Although in number rather small 

Thirteen in all are we, 
Yet we are loj'al to our class 

And true as we can be. 

In all the things that we have done, 
We've tried to do our best 

And always will do just the same 
When we're put to the test. 

For many virtues do we have 

And vices but a few, 
And where there's any work for us 

We're always there to do. 

"Ad Omnia Parati " May 

Our motto ever be, 
For we will always strive to do 

The best at L. V. C. 

O, may we ever loyal be 

And just as truly great. 
O, may the richest blessings 

In life's path us await. 

And Thou who knowest all we do 
Reserve Thy richest fate, 

For us as on throug'h life we go, 
The Class of Nineteen Eight.

HE CLASS of 1909 made its initial appearance at the Sep- 
tember reception for new students. The next three weeks 
of its existence were occupied in listening to plans for a new 
kind of class rush invented by the Sophomores. These 
plans provided that the entire Sophomore class should fight a small 
portion of the Freshman class, thus, — as the Sophomores said, — 
preventing the injury of a great many Freshmen. The name of 
this rush, spelt 'cam,' pronounced ' cane,' was not the least part of 
their invention. The plans came to naught, as did the inventors a 
short time after, when the Freshmen stopped them while trying to 
emit their rather colicy yell just before chapel services. 

The Freshman numerals were painted everywhere about the 
campus as well as on the heat plant stack next day. Just as the 
work on the stack was about completed, three drowsy, unmasked, 
half dressed Sophomores gathered at its base and warmed the chill 
morning air with their threats of dire punishment. As usual, the 
Freshmen were disappointed when they expected trouble. 

In November, the Freshmen challenged the Sophomores to a 
ootball game. To induce the Sophomores to play, the Freshmen 
gave them a team composed of almost evei-ything but Juniors and 
the Faculty. Even then the Sophomores refused to play on the day 
of the game, only playing when forced to by their Senior Cousins. 

The Freshmen practised for the game, hindered by much. 
They entered the game with a few men who had only been given 
permission to play the day before, and so, were inexperienced, and 
lacking some experienced men because of injury received in practice. 
The Sophomores won by the score of five to nothing. 

This is our history — short we know yet the essence of all things 
glorious. We have always strived to attain the ideal expressed in 
our motto and never has anyone approached nearer his ideal than 
we have done. Our misfortunes, by contrast, can but show how 
brilliant our successes ax - e. The future of our class cannot dim the 
glory of its past for it is provided for by members united by love 
and loyalty for Lebanon Valley and for the brown and blue. 



HERE to these halls of L. V. C. 
Have gathered our members bright, 
That they might all some knowledge learn 
To be their guide and shining light. 

In all departments of the school 

Not one will shirk his share or part, 

All work no matter of what sort 

Each takes it up with all his heart. 

' ' Semper cupidi ad summum ' ' 

Is our motto for the morrow, 
May it ever lead us onward 

In Life's pathway free from sorrow. 

Our members at all times have been 

To our colors tried and true, 
Let us hope, our hearts forever 

Will be loyal to Brown and Blue. 

Thus, under our banner and motto 
In earnestness as well as in fun, 

We're gradually taking tne lead 

And always to be found in the run. 

Soon one bright year's work is ended, 

Then we enter on another, 
Which we desire may for us hold 

Greater successes than the other. 

And now Good Fortune ns remember, 
And the smiling face of Father Time 

Look with brightest favor on ns, 
We the class of nineteen nine.

HE life of the music class of 1906 is very short and even 
though we have attained to the dignity of Seniors, yet we 
are in our infancy as far as class organization is concerned. 
On a memorable day in November 1905 nine girls gathered 
together in the Conservatory to do homage to our one gentleman by 
conferring upon him the honor of being our President. He is tall 
and dignified and carries his honor well. 

Our life has flowed along peacefully among sweet and harmoni- 
ous sounds, and with Shakespeare we truly believe that 
" The man that hath no music in himself, 
Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, 
Is fit for treasons, strategems and spoils." 
Therefore we have always been loyal to our class and the insti- 
tution, have never plotted against any one, not even the "Death 
League," and never made a raid into a student's room for spoils. 

Let us end as peacefully as we have begun and go out to our 
places in the world with hearts ever true to our motto and our 
Alma Mater. 


Music, soul of every art, 
What can bid our fears depart; 
What can cheer a saddened heart, 
Like thyself. 

Rhythm that can melt our tears, 
Harmony of all the spheres, 
Memories of ancient years 
Sounding' still. 

We have tried our lives to fill, 
And into our hearts instil 
Melodies and strains that will 
Never die. 

When we leave these classic walls, 
And these dearly cherished halls, 
Where we feel that duty calls, 
Let us go. 

And behind us let us leave 
Naug-ht for which we ought to grieve, 
Only pleasant thoughts receive 
In our lives. 

Then as through the world we pass 
We can feel that we surpass 
All not members of our class, 
Nineteen Six !

The Christian Associations 

==33 T HAS now come to be universally recognized that the 
Christian College represents the true idea in education, in 
which the highest scientific and classical culture is associated 
with the study of the Bible. Dr. Scot Butler says: " Because 
I believe that secular education never has made and never will 
make the world morally one whit better; because I believe that 
mental stimulation is not sufficient for moral growth and develop- 
ment; because I believe in the words of Archbishop Ireland, that 
morals, without religious principles, do not exist, therefore I hesi- 
tate not to claim for our church colleges, that, among the higher edu- 
cational institutions of our country, they are the conservators and the 
only conservators of genuine morality." Our college seeks to main- 
tain her ideal, " The development of the entire man." 

To this end two Associations have been formed, the Y. W. C. A. 
and Y. M. C. A. Just how much these have meant to the College in 
general and to the students especially cannot be estimated. Their 
helpfulness has been particularly felt during this year, many 
students testifying thereto. The result has been that a number 
have joined the Volunteer Band thus declaring their purpose to give 
their lives to the foreign work. 

These Vssociation meetings are supplemented by our Tuesday 
evening prayermeetings. These have been well attended. This 
hour to many, is the most previous of the week. 

The Y. W. C. A. has had a very successful year under Pres. 
Harnish's Administration. A larger number of ladies being in 
college this year has increased the attendance at the meetings. 
Two delegates as usual were sent to Silver Bay-Misses King and 

Through the loss of our old dormitory the boys were scattered 
over the town. This made it difficult for many to attend the Y. M. 
C. A. meetings. However the records show that we have reached 

the standard of last year and in some departments an increase. 
Three men were sent to northfleld; R. E. Morgan, J. W. Kaufmann, 
M. Hoover. 

This year delegates were also sent to the Student Volunteer 
Convention held in Nashville Tenn — M. O. Billow and J. B. 
Showers. This was the largest convention in the history of the 
movement. Seven hundred institutions were represented; The 
total number delegates, students and Professors was 4188. An 
offering of $80,000 was made for Missions. 

Our Y. M. C. A. was ably represented at the Seventh District 
convention by Messrs S. H. Waughtel and E. E. Snyder. 

The Associations were helped greatly by the visits of the state 
secretaries — Miss Thurston and Miss Brinkerhoff to the Y. W. C. A. 
and Mr. W. J. Miller to the Y. M. C. A. The Volunteer movement 
among our students received a great impetus through the devotion 
and consecration of Representative McCombs of the Volunteer 
movement. Two inspiring addresses were also delivered by Dr. 
Hurlburt of India formerly instructor of Lebanon Valley College- 

A special week of Evangelistic Services were held under the 
direction of Rev. E. S. Bowman, Pastor of Memorial U. B. Church, 
Harrisburg, Pa. The opinion expressed by the majority was, that 
no one has conducted these yearly meetings whose addresses were 
more inspiring and helpful than his, the seed sown by this Servant 
of God will no doubt bring forth fruit an hundred fold. The 
Association will gladly welcome Rev. Bowman to their midst when- 
ever he is able to visit them. 

The term receptions to new students is the distinctly social 
feature of the association work. Here all barriers are broken down 
and students mingle as equals. They become acquainted with one 
another and friends are found to whom one can go in hours of 
discouragement and trial. 

The Star Course under the auspices of the two Associations was 
the best in the history of the Institution. The numbers were varied 
appealing to all classes and enjoyed by all.

Varsity Foot Ball 

CAPTAIN Maxwell faced this year's schedule with practically a 
new team. Some of the '04 team were graduated and others 
left the College. With this team the hardest schedule in the 
history of the college was tackled, in some cases effectively and in 
others unsuccessfully. 

Much credit for our good showing was due to the untiring 
efforts of Coach Taggart, who came to us from Rochester Univers- 
ity. Considering the new men and the stiff schedule coach Taggart 
and Manager Spangler are to be congratulated upon the good show- 
ing of the team. A larger per cent of victories stand to the credit 
of this years squad than that of last years.

THE BASKET Ball season was opened rather late because of 
a necessary chance in the schedule, the manager having 
arranged to play most of the games in Lebanon. The first schedule 
twenty-four games, ten games were to be played here. This 
schedule was cancelled but a new one arranged in which most of 
the games were away from home. 

The team played consistent ball, and was composed entirely of 
students in good standing. The work was commendable considering 
the conditions under which they played and the strength of their 

A coach and a suitable place to practise in is what Lebanon 
Valley must have before they can expect to send out winning teams. 
There was plenty of basket ball material here but little develop- 
ment can be secured by playing every aftern°on in the small cage 
of the Town Hall. 

We hope some philanthropic gentleman will build a gymnasium 
for Lebanon Valley College in the near future. 


Tyr HEN IN the course of the year the beautiful season of Spring 
W comes bringing with it the weather for our national sport 
base ball, every player of some ability is anxious to get out on the 
athletic field and loosen up his arm. Baseball is a game which 
requires not weight and muscle but alacrity, a fellow can not be 
developed and taught to play the game in a short time as is the 
case in foot ball, but he must have a great deal of practice. This 
is invariably the solution of the apparent weakness of our team 
during the early part of the season. 

Since we have no gymnasium the players must wait each Spring 
for fair weather before they can get any practice. If we would 
have the advantage of indoor practice during the winter months we 
could make a considerable better showing in the early part of the 
season. As can be seen by the scores we lost the majority of our 
games in the beginning of the season as is always the case. Until 
the team has played about half the schedule it is not in good condi- 
tion to compete with other teams. 

The team on the whole however did creditable playing, especi- 
ally against York team being able to hold them down to one run.

ZEKIEL BORING KEPHART was born November 6, 1834, 
in Decatur Township, Clearfield County, Pennsylvania. 
He was the fifth child and second son of Rev. Henry and 
Sarah Goss Kephart, his father being a local preacher in 
the church of the United Brethren in Christ. At the time of his 
birth Clearfield County was a sparsley- settled wilderness, and his 
parents' mountain cabin was a home and a preaching- place for the 
pioneer itinerant preachers of the above-named church. His par- 
ents, soon after marriage in 1826, betook themselves to the great 
task of clearing out a mountain farm on which were born their sev- 
en sons and six daughters, all of whom, save one son and one 
daughter grew to manhood and womanhood. 

His early educational advantages were quite meager, being only 
such as the crude public school of three months each winter afforded. 
The life of his childhood and youth was spent in toil with his father 
and brothers clearing out and cultivating the rough mountain farm, 
working on the sawmill, at lumbering, and at rafting on the 
Clearfield Creek and the Susquehanna River. In this way, and 
after he attained to his majority, he earned the money with which to 
educate himself. 

He was converted the fall of 1851. It was at a campmeeting 
in September, held near what is now known as Bigler, Clearfield 
County, Pa., that he went to the altar as a seeker and before the 
meeting closed joined the Church; but it was two or three weeks 
later while plowing in the field that he received complete assurance 
of his acceptance with Christ, and he said that he then and there 
stopped his team, and exclaimed to himself, "Well, how very easy it 
is to come to Christ," and said that he felt at once that he must go 
everywhere and tell the people how easy it is to become a Christian. 
From that time on, his heart was set on giving his life to preaching 
the gospel, and he began to plan for securing the necessary educa- 
tional qualification. 

In August, 1856, he with his older brother, entered Dickinson 
Seminary, Williamsport, Pa. In November they returned home and 
taught school, rafted during the spring freshets of 1857, and in May 
of the same year entered Mount Pleasant College. In the succeeding 
fall, that school having been united with Otterbein University, they 
with several other of their fellow students, among them Dr. Daniel 
Eberly, entered that institution. In 1858, for want of money he 
quit school, and received quarterly conference license to preach. 

In January, 1859, he was received into Allegheny Conference at 
Altoona, Pa., as a licenctiate and was assigned to a charge in Jeffer- 
son County, Pa. In January, 1860, he was assigned to Johnstown 
Station, and on November 4, of that year, was marz'ied to Miss Susan 
J. Trefts of that city. Having been appointed by the Board of 
Missions to go to Oregon as a missionary, he was ordained January, 
1861, at the conference session held at Greensburg, Pa., but the 
breaking out of the Civil War so unsettled things financially and 
otherwise, that his appointment as missionary was recalled, and he 
was assigned to Altoona, Pa., as pastor. This charge he served, 
very successfully, two years, and was then assigned to Greensburg. 
During all this time he was diligently pursuing his studies, and in 
186-t he reentered Otterbein University from which he graduated in 

1865. He then became principal of the Michigan Collegiate Institute 
at Leoni, Mich. , and served as such one year. Prom 1866 till the fall 
of 1868 he was again in the active pastoral work in Allegheny Con- 
ference, when he was called to the Presidency of Western College, 
in Iowa, in which station he served most faithfully thirteen years. 
During that time his Alma Mater conferred on him the degree of 
D. D. , and later, Lebanon Valley College gave him the degree of 
Doctor of Laws. He also served as Senator in the Iowa legislature, 
from 1872 to 1876. In May, 1881, the General Conference, then in 
session at Lisbon, Iowa, elected him Bishop. In this relation he 
served twenty-fonr years, when the General Conference of last May, 
in session at Topeka, Kan., made him Bishop Emeritus and retired 
him on half pay, he having requested that he be relieved from the 
burdens and responsibilities of the active Bishopric. 

He died very suddenly of heart failure, in the office of Mr. W.L. 
Elder, Indianapolis, Ind., January 24, 1906, aged 71 years, 2 months, 
and 18 days. 

Thus rounded up, unexpectebly as in a moment his very active, 
useful life of toil in the Lord's service — a noble example of exalted > 
Christian manhood. He was the father of two sons and two daugh- 
ters. Oue son, Waldo, his first child died at Western College, Iowa, 
January 17, 1869, aged nearly seven years. The other boy died in 

1866, aged six months. He leaves living two daughters — Mrs Doctor 
H. U. Roop and Mrs. Doctor L. P. John. Three grand-sons and two 
grand- daughters. 

He also leaves living, three brothers : Dr' I. L. Kephart, editor 
of the Religious Telescope ; Mr. John H. Kephart, a prosperous 
farmer of Shueyville, Iowa ; and Dr. C. J. Kephart, President of the 
Leander Clark College — formerly Western College, Iowa — and two 
sisters ; Mrs. Barbara Albert of Shueyville, Iowa, and Mrs. Belle 
Jeffries of St. Lawrence, South Dakota. 


The Greater Lebanon Valley 

HE higher Christian education has always been an essential 
feature of the Church of Christ. During all the centuries 
the church has had her schools and Universities for the 
training of men to meet the responsibilities of the higher 
callings in life. Each denomination has wisely endeavored to pro- 
vide the higher culture for her own young people. In harmony with 
this thought the Church of the United Brethren in Christ founded 
Lebanon Valley College which has furnished for the past forty years 
a high standard of Christian culture for her young people in 
the East. 

The College cannot be excelled for beauty and healthfulness of 
location. The beautiful Lebanon Valley is one of the most charming 
and attractive sections of the state, and Annville is the Queen of the 
towns of the valley. Here is where Lebanon Valley College opened 
in 1866 with humble beginnings, though with charter privileges for 
University needs. 

The former Annville Academy was the first building owned and 
until 1905 was occupied as a Ladies' dormitory. The chapel and one 
wing of the main building was erected in 1867. These two buildings, 
and a small frame structure afterwards removed from the campus, 
were the only ones the College possessed until 1899. 

The real growth and development of the College has occurred 
during the last ten years. The Engle Conservatoi-y of Music was 
erected in '98- '99. This is a beautiful brownstone building of Cor- 
inthian Architecture providing Director's office, Auditorium, Practice 
Rooms, Society Hall and Art Room. 

The gift for the Andrew Carnegie Library building was secured 
in February '04. The following year an elegant structure of the 
Italian Renaissance Style of Architecture was erected in which are 
contained the library stack room, reading rooms, auditorium, libra- 
rian's office and Seminar rooms for department work. 

The Administration building was doubled in size in 1900 of which 
Dr. Eberly says : " This enlarged and beautified its splendid appear- 
ance, engendered emotions of gratitude within our hearts and we felt 
that the spacious edifice was an honor to us." But this beautiful 
building with all its treasures was consumed by flames on the even- 
ing of December 24, 1904. 

This dreadful calamity struck terror into the hearts of many 
friends of the college, but Dr.Roop, nothing daunted, visited Andrew 
Carnegie three days after the fire and within a week from the loss 
of the building he had the promise of $50,000 from the steel king 


toward $100,000 for the rebuilding of a " Greater Lebanon Valley." 
At once plans were drawn for a group of Modern College buildings 
including an administration building for recitation purposes and col- 
lege offices. A Men's Dormitory after the Oxford and Cambridge 
style, a Science Hall and a central Heat and Light Plant. A New 
Ladies' Dormitory, begun in 1904 was completed and occupied in the 
fall of 1905. A gymnasium was promised by Maurice E. Brightbill, 
wife and mother in 1903 and the Science Hall was provided for by a 
gift of $25,000 from Alfred Cochran, of Dawson, Pa., in '05. Work 
was begun upon the two latter buildings but for the present has been 

The Men's Dormitory is completed and occupied. The heat 
plant has been in use since last fall. The Administration building 
is nearing completion and is expected to be in readiness for the open- 
ing in the fall of 1906. When all these buildings are completed we 
will have an equipment equal to the best, the finest in the denomina- 
tion and an honor to the cause of education. 

On the educational side Lebanon Valley has wrought well. In 
recent years her Courses of Study have been equal to the best, hav- 
ing adopted the group system in vogue at Johns Hopkins Univers- 
ity. The Classical, Philosophical, Chemical- Biological, Historical- 
Political and Modern Language are the titles of the Groups, desig- 
nating the particular subjects that are emphasized in each. There 
is an adviser appointed for each group and all the departments are 
in charge of competent instructors. There is no better school in the 
State where young people may secure their college training, a libe- 
ral Christian culture and the inspiration of high social, ethical and 
educational ideals, under teachers who are scholarly and cultured 
Christian men and women with whom they come in daily personal 

Over four hundred young men and young women have been 
graduated from the College. These all have gone forth to brighten 
the dark places of earth and to bless humanity. Many others have 
taken partial courses and received inspiration and helpfulness for 
better service for their f ellowmen. Our graduates are found in high 
places in all the professions and callings of life and as teachers they 
occupy honored positions from Yale to the University of the Pacific. 

Patrons of the College can do nothing better than to give the 
opportunities of intellectual and moral training, which is the most 
abiding inheritance, to their children. 

Men of means can do nothing nobler than to transmute some of 
their gold into lives of beauty, honor and power for the service of 
God and man. 

An Affectionate Tribute 

r "T HE " pony " is my helper ; I shall not " flunk." He maketh me 
to have good translations, and he leadeth me beside the foun- 
tains of knowledge. He raiseth my grades and leadeth me in the 
paths of knowledge for credit's sake. Yea, tho I plod thru the val- 
leys of Latin and Greek, I fear no " exam " for he is with me. His 
words and his truth, they comfort me. He prepareth my lessons 
for me in the presence of my teachers. He crowneth my head 
with glory and my grades run high. Surely, applause and greatness 
shall follow me all the days of my life and the pony shall dwell in 
my house forever. 

'"T HE pony and the knowledge thereof is my own. The class and 
they that recite therein use him. For he works single or dou- 
ble and in the class-room as well as in my own room. Who can plod 
thru the weary lines of Latin and Greek without his help, or who 
can take his honored place '? He beareth correct translations and a 
generous heart. He hath not consigned his soul to selfishness nor 
translated wrongly. He shall receive my blessing for his useful- 
ness, and my everlasting protection for his fidelity. This is the 
generation of them that use thee, that seek thy aid, pony. Lift 
up thy head, O pony, for thou hast not been used too hard. Lift up 
thy head, O pony, and thou, my king of translation, shall prove thy 
usefulness. Who is this king of translation ? It is the pony, finely 
printed and interlined, so handy in the time of need. 

Student Life at L, V* G 

HE student in college lives a varied life. He is or ought 
to be, first of all, a student. The selection of his course is 
left largely to himself and his own best judgment, conse- 
quently at the very beginning of his course he is called 
upon to use his powers of discretion. As the field of social, athletic, 
literary and religious life opens to him he is enabled to develop and 
use the power which a systematic course of study furnishes him as 
a student. His participation in these student activities very largely 
determines his future success in life. 

At Lebanon Valley College there is ample opportunity for a 
development of body, mind and spirit. 

We do not have the most happy facilities for the coordinate 
development of man's threefold being. To the credit of our student 
body we can say however, that altho we do not have a well equipped 
gymasium, the majority of the students have devised methods 
whereby they secure physical development almost as help-ful. 

The different athletic sports foot-ball, basket-ball and base-ball 
have their adherents and the best recommendation they can offer is 
that some of the best " all-round" fellows represent the college on 
these varsity teams. Recently the college authorities decided to re- 
place the destroyed courts in the New Athletic Field. Enthusiasts who 
have not been fortunate to make the college teams usually compose 
the reserve and second teams. Tennis has been somewhat inter- 
fered with by the building operations, which have torn up the courts. 

The literary societies, of which there are three, Clionian, Philo- 
kosmian and Kalozetean, are probably the best agents, outside of 
class-room work for the development of the students thinking 
faculties. Every student ought to affiliate himself with one of these 
organizations because of the opportunities for development they 

The religious life of the school seems to be growing better each 
year. There are, in every college, influences which to a certain 
extent are harmful to the devotional life of the student but these are 
at a minimum at Lebanon Valley. The excellent work of the young 
Woman's and young Men's Christian Association and the mid week 
.prayer services is noticeable in every department. Each class sends 
a good percentage of its number to Theological schools, into the 
regular ministry and other departments of Christian work. 

Student life is a serious yet happy life and our attainments and 
struggles with our failures and disappointments will soon be for- 
gotten and we will then realize the seriousness of actual life. 



When the evening- shadows gather 
Neath the trees upon the hill, 
Then amidst the swaying tree-tops 
Sound the voices soft and still. 

Tis a murmur like the humming 

Of a tired homesick bee, 
And the languid leaves are drooping 

One by one upon the tree. 

Then the sturdy oak-tree father, 

Stretching forth his sheltring arm, 

Gathers in his sleepy children, 

To protect them all from harm. 

Then the shadows fall so softly 

Like a coverlet so deep, 
As the kindly pine-tree mother 

Sings the little tree to sleep.

An Escapade 

IRLS, I'm as hungry as can be " said Catherine to the 
other three girls who were in the room and who in reply 
started to sing ' ' So are we all of us. " ' ' Lets go down to 
the restaurant," she pursued. 

"Oh, bother, I'm too tired to go way down there. Lets do 
something more exciting. Oh, say lets play some tricks on the 
other girls," came from Grace Matson, the youngest of the four. 

" What's the use of playing tricks they are all old anyway, and 
that won't satisfy my appetite. Wasn't that supper awful, I only 
ate a little bread and butter and some fruit. What do the rest of you 
say about going down town?" continued Catherine, not to be turned 
aside from her plan. 

" I've got an idea," came from Martha Young's corner, "We 
might visit the kitchen. " 

" But that's all locked up and there's not a soul in the building 
but us," said Catherine. 

"Why so much the better, you goose, we can have everything 
our own way, " came from Martha. 

But I don't see how you can get in without breaking the door 
in and I won't help do that." 

" If we can't unlock the door, we can climb in the window," said 
Martha who was as unwilling to give up her scheme as Catherine 
was to give up hers. 

" But the windows have screens over them " said Catherine, the 
objector. I'm going to get in that kitchen if I break my neck " came 
from the determined Martha. 

" Don't break your neck, it's far to pretty, drawled May Eberly 
from the cosey corner where until this moment she had been com- 
fortably lying, then she continued, " Don't you remember the night 
we wanted bread, the key was hanging beside the door and if it isn't 
tonight, we might all take the keys to our rooms and surely one of 
them will open it." 

"Don't forget the shoebuttoner lock breakers always carry," but 
poor Grace was interrupted by the other girls' laughter. "Uncle 
Frank told me so and I'm going to take a shoebuttoner, so laugh all 
you want to, if it amuses you." 

Soon a procession of four excited girls stole swiftly down the 
stair way. 

The keys were tried in turn but not one would turn the stubborn 
lock and Mother Allen had thought it best to draw the latch string 
in. Even the shoebuttoner failed of its boasted charm. 

" I feel just like saying something bad. I'm going to get in 
the window," said Martha. 

" The maids sometimes keep crackers in the dining room," said 

" Good for you child, hush, I thought I heard some one but its 
all right. Come girls, we'll have to hurry." And Martha ran up the 
steps lightly with the other three close behind her, but four pair of 
eyes could not find something where there was nothing. 

" Plague on it," said Catherine, half cross," if we'd have gone 
down town we would have been back by now. What are you going to 
do now?" turning to Martha who was examining the dumb waiters. 
" If one of U5 cxald crawl up in that W3'd hive everything we want 
to eat," as she pointed to the lower shelf of the dumb waiter. 

Grace immediately began to examine another one. " Oh its 
just the thing all these shelves can come out." 

" I'll go down in one, because I'm the smallest, if some one will 
go down in the other," said May Eberly. 

" Its up to you, Grace; for you're next in size." 

"Alright, who cares, such things only happen once in a life 

After the girls had fixed themselves as comfoi'table as possible 
Grace suddenly exclaimed," What will we do if the doors are shut 

Don't fear they will be "was the assurance she received, and 
then Catherine and Martha began slowly to enter the dumb waiters. 

Everything was going well, when Martha heard a smothered 
cry from grace, "Oh Martha quick, pull me up. I'm suffocating, 
" May, oh, May." 

But May, as it afterwards turned out, was busy searching the 
pantry and thought of course that Grace was likewise employed in 
searching the kitchen closets. Martha pulled as hard and as fast as 
she could on the ropes but only succeeded in getting Grace half way 
up and then the dumb waiter stuck. In vain she pulled and jerked. 

From the dumb waiter came smothared cries, " I'm dying, Oh 
Grace, May do save me, I'll be dead before I get out of here." 

By this time May had finished her searching and was returning 
to the dumb waiter in triumph, her arms filled with good things. 
As she came out of the pantry she called, " Grace, Grace," but no 
one answered and then to her amazement she saw that only one 
shaft was open. When she neared the dumb waiter she heard 
poor Grace's half smothered sobs. Quickly she opened the lower 
door and thus the half suffocated girl was enabled to get some fresh 
air. In vain Catherine and Grace worked to make the elevator 
move up or down, it would not move. "If we cn'y had some 
machine oil, sighed Catherine. 

Sweet oil will do the work," and up the stairs bounded Martha. 
On her return a whole bottle full of the fluid was poured on the pull- 
eys and other pieces of iron. Then slowly but sui-ely the dumb 
waiter began to move and the girls presently pulled out tear stained, 
frightened, rumpled, Grace. Then hurriedly they raised May to 
the surface, put the shelves into place and made a bee line for their 
rooms half shoving along Grace, who was trying to find out whether 
she was dead or alive — for they expected any minute to hear the 
others returning from the concert. 

After they were all seated again in Catherine's room and had 
paused to take breath, May began to laugh excitedly, half hysteri- 
cally. " What will we ever do, I left all the stuff down on the kit- 
chen table." 

Gloomily the girls looked at one another but there was nothing 
to be done except soothe poor Crace who was not as yet over her 

"Mother Lane will make an awful fuss," was the conclusion 
they reached but nothing was ever heard of the escapade again and 
the girls never knew how puzzled Mother Lane was over the smell 
of sweet oil about the dumb waiters and the packages of cheese, 
crackers and canned fruit on the table. " That boy must have 
brought these after I left last night and those lazy girls wouldn't 
lift a finger to do anyone else's work, but I don't remember ordering 
these things. How one does forget, " was all she said.

His inaugurel address once. I will endever, the boys call 
him Funkie. , perhaps to give you a brief outline, He says, 
he iike large families ; Were there is a will, there is a vay. 

Don't use more water than is necessary. You are only a 
visitor at the dining Hall. After him the bizness manager 
of the Forum spoke, (I vill send you a copy next week). 
It comes out wonce a month. It has in it some editorials, 
which are on the people who don't take the Forum, and 
those who don't pay for it. Wounce in a wile there is an 
editorial on student ideals and athletchics, but they are 
perhaps copeed from old magazines, i always keep my 
Forums in the trunk. he said you are getting 67 cents 
worth for 50 cents, wat a shame, ain't. They say there's a 
lot of boiler plate in it. Everybody likes it and likes to

they made him dig a hole and bury his voice in it. He was 
then blessed with the oil of gladness. 
You bet il be gud. 

Your little boy 

P. S. — Say Ma send that money Billie says he needs it. 

A Valuable Gift 

THLETICS in general and class spirit in particular received 
a great impetus by the timely gift, a beautiful Bronze Cup 
given by Mr. Alfred Keister Mills, '04, to the winners of the 
Freshman- Sophomore foot ball game. 
Sports of this nature, especially in colleges, depend largely upon 
the enthusiasm which can be aroused in their favor. Anything done 
to arouse this needed spirit snould receive our most hearty applause. 
Mr. Mills' diplomatic mind could have conceived of no better thing 
to do for the college and athletics in particular than to arouse a 
healthy rivalry between the classes by the presentation of the cup. 
Others think but do not act. With him to have thought well is the 
deed half done. 

More enthusiasm was displayed in this contest than in any other 
game of the season. Banners and class flags were everywhere appa- 
rent while class yells fairly rent the air. By a clever trick the cup 
this year was won by the Sophomore class by the close margin 
of five to nothing. 

Where athletics depend upon the student body the value of such 
a gift can hardly be estimated. Now, since the precedent has been 
established, let others follow the good example and next year make 
an equally valuable gift. 

L is for loitering in the hall 

Which Funkie denounced as a sin for all. 

£ is for escapades, as bonfires so grand 

Which never take place while the profs are at hand. 

B is for Brightee a fat little man, 

Who's forgetting the Gym as fast as he can. 

A is for allowances, both great and small 
Which never expand but collapse like a ball. 

N is for naughty seven, the year 
Which is to the Juniors most dear. 

O is for opening a can, you know, 
Of beans, sniped in the kitchen below. 

N is for the class of naughty nine, 
Our cousins just down the line. 

V is for voice taught by a dandy 

Whose peppermint drops are always hand. 

A is the academy whose base ball team 

Has taught the Sophs that it has some steam. 

L is for the ladies so bright and so dear 
The wives of the faculty, whom we revere. 

L- is for longing for home far away, 
To which we will go as soon as we may. 

£ is for electric our lights so bright 
Whose waste has become a saying so trite. . 

Y is for yelling, as loud as you can 

For class, college, athletics, down to a man. 



O CREATURE shy, who keep'st thyself apart, 
From everyone but those who care for thee, 
A captive never wishing - to be free. 
What peace must dwell within thy canine heart ! 
At times thy piteous look doth well impart 
That, of whatever nature they may be, 
Thy share of cares has not been kept from thee, 
And thou canst feel alike the keen and smart. 
Oh fortunate the lot that thou dost hold 
That thou art cast into this world so wide, 
So cruel, too, and yet thou dost uphold 
The loyal spirit at thy master's side. 
How many creatures low in life as thee 
Can half so happy and contented be ?

The New Commandments 


Thou shalt have thine eye on no other colleges but this one; 
thou shalt have no secret communications with them for I am a 
jealous " Prexy " visiting the wrath of the faculty upon the students 
unto the third or fourth generation of them that disobey me. 


Remember thy study hours and keep them holy, for thou 
shouldst guard them as sacredly as thou wouldst guard thy purse- 
Under no circumstances must thou loiter in the halls to converse 
with the opposite sex. 

Honor the faculty and " always speak well of them even if you 
have to stretch the truth," for remember the examination day 
cometh and with it thy grades. 

For exercise thou shalt not tread down the campus grass, but 
be deli gent in the gymnasium and on the athletic field for I hold the 
athlete as the apple of mine eye. 

Enter the ladies parlor only no the invitation of your lady 
friend, which must not be too frequent. By no means shalt thou 
have a standing invitation to visit at the hall. 

Thou shalt not raise false reports about the college or anything 
that pertains there to. 

Walk into the dining-room like true southern gentlemen, for to 
be ungentlemanly is not to be consistent with the feast? that is 
prepared for thee. 

Thou shalt use the electricity with sparing hand, and likewise 
the water for " Billie " says the treasury is nearly empty. 

Thou shalt find no fault with the lack of grub, for a full stomach 
standeth not a student in good stead. 

Thou shalt not "pony" nor shalt thou copy thy neighbors 
examination papers; thou shalt not covet thy neighbors lady friend 
(or vice versa,) nor his trot; nor anything that is thy neighbors or 
the faculty's except their knowledge and their wisdom. 


The Cuckoo, Nightingale, and the Donkey 

NCE upon a time in the Black Forest of Germany was situ- 
ated a famous Singing School for birds. Each Spring as 
the last snow was rapidly disappearing and the trees 
beginning to bud. this school met for its Summer term. 

The director of the school was Professor Stork, who, though no 
singer himself, had travelled extensively, and was well qualified to 
judge the capabilities of others. 

The school opened and the birds poured in with their new clothes 
and their music rolls. According to custom on the first week a 
grand Carnival of Song was held and the winner received as a prize, 
six extra fine early worms. 

On this occasion the Cuckoo had out-distanced all competitors 
and was declared Queen of the Songsters. She received the prize 
and flew off. Finding a deserted nest near a brook, she flew into it 
to rest and enjoy her feast alone. Although it was early April it 
seemed like June so mild and pleasant was the weather. This had 
a drowsy effect upon the Cuckoo and she soon fell asleep. 

She must have been sleeping for hours, for dawn was just break- 
ing, when she was suddenly awakened by a strange sound. What 
was this ? What bird dared to come and sit and sing, right before ■ 
her, the Queen of the Song Carnival ? For there, within three feet 
of her, sitting on a bough near the brook, was a strange bird, sing- 
ing with all her might. Higher and clearer her song rose, first 
liquid and vibrant like the notes of a canary, then descending she 
sang in the steady finished style of the Cuckoo herself, and, trilling 
on the lower notes, she ended her song in an almost inaudible gurgle 
in her throat. 

The Cuckoo's breast heaved with envy, for here she recognized 
a possible rival. With a spring she was upon the stranger, and the 
two, falling into the remnant of a snow drift, made it fly like a 
miniature blizzard. The result, was, that after a few moments of 
fight, the Cuckoo half-clambered and half-flew, gasping, choking 
and beaten, from the cold water of the near-by brook. 

" Who are you " ? she spluttered, her eyes blazing with anger. 

" I," replied the stranger cooly, " I, am the Nightingale ! I have 
come North to teach you birds how to sing. Rather a cool reception 
all around though." 

" Well you can go back where you came from. We don't need 
you croaking round here " snapped the Cuckoo, arranging her 
ruffled feathers. 

"It seems you do need me very much when such as you win the 
prizes," replied the Nightingale. 

" What school of singing did you ever go to " ? piped the Cuck- 
oo, scornfully. 

" I don't need to go to any," answered the Nightingale, " genius 
is born not made." 

This argument might have continued until it would probably 
have resulted in another bath for the Cuckoo, had not a plan entered 
her head. 

" I tell you what we'll do," she said. " In order to prove that 
I am the best singer, we will leave the decision to the first person 
we meet." 

" All right," said the Nightingale. 

The Cuckoo was a cunning bird. She knew a donkey in a 
neighboring field, and though he sometimes seemed to laugh while 
she was singing, he was withal an amiable fellow, and a friend of 
her's besides, so she counted on obtaining the decision from him, if 
they could meet him. With a careless air, she turned to fly in the 
direction of the field, and the Nightingale followed. 

As good fortune would have it they met the donkey first thing, 
on the edge of the wood. Both birds alighted on the fence which 
enclosed his pasture and the Cuckoo opened the conversation. 

" Herr Donkey," she said with extreme politeness, " we would 
like to have you decide which of us is the better singer." 

" All right," said the Donkey, " go ahead and sing." 

The Cuckoo raised her head, filled her lungs, and began. She 
sang of the dawn of the twilight, of the sowing, the violets and the 
brooks, and of all the joy in life and nature. 

At last she was through and the Donkey motioned with his ear 
for the Nightingale to begin. 

Without any preparation the Nightingale began. She sang of 
the olive and citron groves, of the leafy nest of her childhood, of 
the summer breezes, the white shimmering sand and of the glory 
and splendor of the Eastern courts, of love, of passion, of despair ; 
sang as if the whole world with all its joys had been given to her 
and she must pay for it in song. 

When the Nightingale had finished both birds eagerly awaited 
the verdict. The donkey stood for a few moments in contemplation 
and then he said : "Your voice, Cuckoo is indeed splendid. Al- 
though it lacks the range of some others yet it justly deserves its 
reputation for clearness and tone power. It is not surprising that 


it is dear to the hearts of man and beast, for it has lightened the 
labors of many. But for range and sweetness I have never yet 
heard a bird voice like the one of this stranger. So strong and 
weird and yet so beautiful is it, that I was almost entranced. 

These however are mere bird voices. They are all right for 
little meaningless ditties ; but to express true emotion in all its dif- 
ferent shades there is nothing like a good bass voice. Listen, my 
dears, and I will sing a lay which will make you ashamed to call 
yourselves songsters." Thereupon the donkey began to bray in his 
loudest and deepest tones. 

So enraged were the two birds at this insult, that they sat upon 
him and so belabored him about the head, chasing him round and 
round the field, that at last he was glad to escape from them by 
plunging his head into a thorn bush. The two birds, thinking he 
had received enough punishment, flew off together, leaving him a 
sadder and a wiser donkey, fully determined never again to try to 
referee a woman's dispute. 

As for the two birds, having expended their spite upon the donk- 
ey, they now became friends. The Nightingale said that life in the 
North was too strenuous for her and the weather too cold, and she 
avowed her intention of returning to the South. Thereupon the two 
made a compact. The Cuckoo should reign supreme in the regions 
of the Black Forest, while the Nightingale should be Queen of Song 
in the South. And so it is today.

Our New President 

HE success of a College depends not a little upon the general 
ability of the man at the head. Lebanon Valley College 
has been especially fortunate in its presidents. They have 
usually been men of strong natural ability, well educated, 
well fitted to fill the position they occupied.

"If you ask us whence this book is, 
Whence this yearly publication 
With its gay attempt at satire, 
But no desire to be funny, 
If you ask us we'll not tell you, 
For it maybe we have hit you, 
May have hurt you, hurt you sorely, 
But you still have consolation, 
You've had your turn, or it is coming, 
When your rap will sound out plainly 
Knocking this or knocking that, 
Then you'll know, why we say it, 
Why we say it with all firmness 
We'll Not Tell You ! "
