8 The Bizarre 


HON. E. BENJAMIN BIERMAN was born near Reading, Pennsylvania, 
December i, 1839. His ancestors were Prussians who emigrated to this 
country from WestphaHa, Germany, near the close of the eighteenth 
century. They were prominent in civic, church and educational relations, and on 
his maternal side — the Bertrams — represent a long line of teachers in this country 
and in Prussia, the line being easily traced back to the period of the Thirty 
Years' War. 

After enjoying the usual advantages of private schools of his boyhood days, 
at the age of seventeen he entered the Reading Classical Academy, then under the 
principalship of the Rev. William A. Good, A.M., where he prepared for the 
junior class in college, studying the ancient and modern languages including 
Latin, Greek, French and German, the literature of these languages, also higher 
mathematics, general history, logic and mental philosophy. In 1864 he was called 
to the principalship of the Hamburg, Pa., Public High School, which position he 
successfully filled until March, 1867, when he was chosen to assist in the organi- 
zation of Lebanon Valley College and became its professor of mathematics and 
astronomy, and ever since. Dr. Bierman has been deeply interested in the welfare 
of the institution, and through all the vicissitudes of fortune has nobly stood by 
her. He has been interested in the various auxiliary projects connected with the 
school, and is one of the founders of the Philokosmian Literary Society, the 
oldest of our literary societies. 

After the retirement of President Kephart in June, 1890, affairs at the Col- 
lege reached a crisis. Many persons prominent in our church and educational 
circles warmly advocated the relocation of the College and this movement un- 
fortunately retarded its progress seriously, and divided its patrons. At this 
juncture Dr. Bierman was called to the presidency at a special meeting of the 
Board of Trustees, held July 28, 1890, and after receiving assurances of hearty 
co-operation from members of the Faculty and many other interested friends of 
the College, he decided to accept the position. Rev. Dr. Brane, the then Presi- 
dent of the Board of Trustees, in a recent address before the Lebanon County 
Historical Society, says : "When Dr. Bierman accepted the presidency of Leba- 
non Valley College he undertook the management of the school in the midst of 
a financial crisis the fog of which shut out the sunlight of hope from many loving 
hearts. After he was elected I was appointed to notify him of the fact, and re- 
quest him to accept the responsibility. After much deliberation and prayer he 
reluctantly consented to take charge of the school, and for a period of seven years 

The Bizarre 

he bore on his brave heart burdens enough to bury a giant. In my judgment he 
saved its hfe and placed it in the hne of promotion to its present proud position 
of growing usefulness." 

Many desirable improvements were made during President Bierman's in- 
cumbency, among them the purchase and addition of four acres of ground to 
the campus ; but the most important and by far the largest single contribution yet 
received was the Mary A. Dodge Fund of $10,000 to aid needy students. This 
gracious benefaction has made possible the education of many a worthy young 
man and woman. Dr. Bierman, by his devotion to duty and business tact, suc- 
cessfully tided the institution across the breakers during the unfortunate reloca- 
tion agitation and the severe financial depression of 1893-4-5. 

After his retirement in 1897 he was not connected with the College until he 
was called back to official relations in June, 1906, when he was elected treasurer 
of the College by a unanimous vote. In this position he has the confidence of the 
business public and the student body alike because of his sterlifig integrity and 
loyalty to duty. Only once before had he severed his connection with the College, 
from i88r to 1890, when he was a resident of Philadelphia, where he taught part 
of the time. Dr. Bierman is the best authority on the history of Lebanon Valley 
College, being the only man now officially connected with it who assisted in its 
founding. Working with a singleness of purpose through all these years what 
Dr. Bierman has done to inspire the work, to broaden the outlook and to extend 
the scope and influence of the College, is as yet unwritten history. 

In 1867 Lafayette College conferred on him the degree of Master of Arts, 
and in 1892 Ursinus College honored him with that of Doctor of Philosophy. 
From 1878 to 1880 he served as secretary of the National Teachers' Association, 
in the Higher Education Department. 

Dr. Bierman has also had a successful political career. In 1880 he was a 
delegate to the Republican State Convention, as also in 1905, and in the Garfield 
campaign he served on the Republican State Central Committee. In 1900 he 
was, after a hotly contested campaign, elected a member of the General Assem- 
bly of our State, and in 1902 he was re-elected by a largely increased majority. 
In both sessions he served on a number of important committees, and even those 
who differed with him politically attest to his ability as a legislator. Among 
other bills that he succeeded in having passed are two of no small moment, one 
permitting county commissioners to appropriate money to aid county historical 
societies in the prosecution of their work, and the other authorizing the same 
officers to provide at public expense metal grave markers of our deceased sol- 
diers, both highly meritorious measures. 

\K preparing this book for publication, the editors 
have worked long and hard, and in presenting 
it to the friends and students of Lebanon Val- 
ley College, we solicit their kindest consider- 
ation in the judgment of its merits. We ask 
that you, who may read this book will not 
criticise too liarshly, for we are not masters in the art of editing, 
neither do we lay claim to. great originality in the material of 
which this work is composed. Where we have copied, we have 
tried to copy the best, and our thanks are due to the editors of 
annuals and books from which we have received many helpful 
hints. We desire also to thank those who have aided us in fur- 
nishing material for this book and who have given us helpful 
advice and criticism. 

\Ve send out this volume in the hope that its readers will 
find in it something that is instructive and inuch that is interest- 
ing, and that it will serve as a link to bind all in closer touch with 
our Alma Mater.

The College 

The Bizarre 




LEGE had its beginning 
May 7, 1866. For many 
3'ears there had been a growing de- 
sire for a higher educational insti- 
tution in the eastern part of our 
church territorjr. In 1865 the 
East Pennsylvania Conference 
in session passed a resolution to 
establish such a school. A year 
later the Conference accepted for 
this purpose the grounds and build- 
ing of what was then known as the 
Annville Academy. 

The Academy had its origin in a 
private school in Annville. A com- 
modious building was erected in 

1836, and four years later the school was incorporated as an Academy. In 1856 
additional land was purchased and the following year a new building was erected. 
This property was donated to Lebanon Valley College in 1866, and having served 
for many 3'ears as a ladies' dormitory, is now used as an Academy building. 

i\Iore land was bought and in August of 1867 the corner stone was laid for 
the building which for many years was the main college building. In this was a 
chapel, president's office, recitation rooms, and men's dormitory rooms. A 
kitchen and dining hall were in the basement. This building was finished in 1868, 
and the first regular commencement occurred in 1870 when three were graduated. 

Some years later on College Avenue was erected a two-story frame building 
which contained the science department, several recitation rooms, the library, art 
room and museum. This was in use until 1900 when it was removed, because a 
large wing was added to the main building, making the other no longer necessary. 

The Engle Conservatory of Music, the gift of Mr. B. F. Engle, a life-long 
friend of the institution, was finished in 1899. This is a handsome three-story 
brownstone building, and in it the music department has its home. It also con- 
tains a large auditorium, art room and the society hall of the Kalozetean Literary 


The Bizarre 


Society. For a number of 
years the library and read- 
ing rooms were located in 
this building. 

The College received 
as the gift of Mr. An- 
drew Carnegie in i904-'o5 
a beautful library building. 
On the first floor are the 
library proper and two 
handsomely furnished 
reading rooms. On the 
second fioor are five sem- 
inar rooms and a large as- 
sembly room. 

The Woman's Dormi- 
tory was erected in 1905. 
Beside the dormitory 
rooms it contains the CHonian Literary Society Hall, a dining hall, two large 
parlors, a well-equipped kitchen and laundry. 

The Men's Dormitory was also completed in this year. It contains single 
and double rooms and a number of suites. 

Early in the evening of December 24, 1904, fire broke out in the main build- 
ing, and swiftly destroyed it. This was a severe loss to the college because there 
were in this building chem- 
ical, physical, and biologi- 
cal laboratories, a museum 
which contained many val- 
uable specimens, recitation 
rooms, the president's of- 
fice, the Philokosmian Lit- 
erary Society Hall, the stu- 
dents' rooms, and the cen- 
tral heating plant. Scarcely 
anything was saved. The 
many friends of the Col- 
lege came to its aid, and 



things were soon put into running order so tliat the opening ■ of the winter 
term was delayed but a single week. The Science Department was placed in the 
basement of the library, several rooms in the ladies' hall, chapel, and practice 
rooms were at once turned into recitation rooms. Friends in town gave rooms in 
their homes to the College for dormitory purposes, and regular work was re- 
sumed without delay. 

The College has grown steadily from its founding. After the charter had 
been obtamed in 1867 a faculty was organized with Prof. T. R. Vickroy as pres- 
ident and Prof. E. Benj. Bierman as principal of the Normal Department. A col- 
lege curriculum and regulations for governing the school were established at 
once. Dui mg this administration the Philokosmian Literary Society was founded. 
President Vickroy was followed by Prof. Lucian H. Hammond, who served from 
1871-187G.. In 1872 the Clionian Literary Society for the women students was 
founded. President Hammond resigned in 1876 on account of ill health. Rev. 
D. D. DeLong succeeded him and acted as president until 1887. In 1877 the 
Kalozetean Literary Society was founded. In this administration the Musical 


Department was organized and a regular course established. The first class was 
graduated in 1882. Rev. E. S. Lorenz was the fourth president. Enlargement 
was his motto and he abl}' fulfilled his position until his health compelled him to 
resign in 1889. Under his direction the "College Forum" made its first appear- 
ance "in 18SS. His successor was Rev. Cyrus J. Ivephart who served but a single 

Some discouraging conditions at this time brought np the question of relo- 
cating the College. Nothing came of it, however, and Dr. Bierman was elected to 
the presidency. He faithfully filled this position until he was succeeded in 1897 
by Dr. Hervin U. Roop, who held the office until January, 1906. The Executive 
Committee and Faculty managed the affairs of the College until the election of 
the present incumbent, Rev. A. P. Funkhouser, in March, 1906. 

After the disastrous fire in 1904, the College received a gift of $50,000 from 
Mr. Andrew Carnegie. A like amount was secured from friends of the institu- 
tion and the work of rebuilding was begun immediately. The Administration 
Building contains recitation rooms and rooms for the Science and Art Departments.

HOU must be true thyself 

If thou the truth wouldst teach : 
Thy soul must overflow, if thou 

Another soul would reach ; — 
It needs the overflowing heart 
To give the life full speech. 

Think truly, and thy thought 
Shall the world's famine feed ; 

Speak truly and each word of thine 
Shall be a fruitful seed ; — 

Live truly and thy life shall be 
A great and noble creed.

Four short years have passed since we met as strangers, eager for the new 
Hfe which lay before us and which had been the center of our day dreams for 
many days, and we were anxious to have them reaHzed. Today we are building 
castles in Spain as hopefully as we built those of four years ago. The future 
alone will reveal when we have laid our last stone whether our work is com- 
plete or incomplete. 

Our Freshman year seems but as a dream, and today we look back with 
envious eyes upon the ones A\'ho are learning for the first time that there are 
some things which a Freshman dare not do. Of the four years spent at College, 
the Freshman year is the gayest and happiest, for everything* is new and in- 
teresting. Our color rush, the banquet which secret we guarded so zealously, the 
cupola fight, the baseball game and our victorious song, "Oh me, oh my, oh what 
have we done," etc., all seem far, far away. 

Our Sophomore year seems scarcely more real, and it has left in memory a 
hard-fought color rush, a foot ball game, the hanging of a Freshman dumni}', a 
fake banquet and a poster contest. 

In our Junior year, we worked the hardest and achieved the most. Our play, 
"The Rivals,"' which was the first class play ever given at L. V. and the "Bizarre" 
were successful and well repaid our labors. Again we played the class of '06 in 
base ball, won, and once more we had a banquet. 

The days of our Senior year are passing all too quickly and when we say 
farewell to Lebanon Valley, we will not leave all behind, for we will take with 
us associations and friendships which time can never erase. 

The hours spent in study and the hours of pleasure have become days ; and 
the days have lengthened into months, and the months into years, and now the 
years have become but a part of yesterday. Our worries over exams will all be 
forgotten, but our joys and pleasures which fill in all the nooks and crannies will 
ever be held in memory. If we have failed, in all that we sought to achieve, we 
hope that upon our failure some other class will build success. 

When we have said farewell to Lebanon Valley for the last time as students, 
it will all be as a "tale that is told," and although it may be years before we will 
meet as a class again, no matter where we are, may we remain loyal and true 
to L. V.

Class Poem 1907 

Comrades, our college days are nigh past, 
The shadows of evening gather fast — 
Retrospect's dear dream of happy years 
Mingles feelings of joy, pain, smiles, tears. 

Tho' you regret friendships to sever. 
Forget each other, we will never ! 
No matter where parting ways may lead you, 
Remember, mates, time will prove us true. 

Our Alma ]\Iater dear, let us tell 

To thee a lingering, kind farewell ;- 

We love the place where blackbirds sleep, 

Brooks murmur, violets smile — "Lover's Leap.' 

But friends, the dream of the past is done ; 
The real, stern future, is just begun — 
Its open door beckons us, "Come, live" ; 
Bid us Godspeed, the best you can give.

Class History of 1908 

My c.luty is to write of the past. That word "past" ! What a glamor it 
casts over things ; how it softens and beautifies every line and feature of faces 
and senes we have known ! How in its golden haze even the commonplace is 
made rare and the familiar becomes colored to the ideal. Who does not like to 
escape from the everyday world now and then into the dreamland of things 
gone by ; and who can say we do not derive some benefit from such musing if it 
arouses us to a keener appreciation of things present. 

We all like to dream, and so much the better if we have an excuse, and my 
present one is duty, a duty to write the class hi.story of '08 in five hundred words. 

Five hundred words ! so the decree used to be, with the phrase "to be handed 
in next week," appended to it. And when the next week came, the themes were 
handed in ! Wonderful tales ; of tots of six years with a revolver in each 
hand, rescuing a family from burglars ; of desperadoes, who would put Jesse 
James to shame by their immortal deeds ; of lovers, whom nothing could separate, 
who were more persistent than even the patients in a co-ed "case." 

Then came Sophomore year, when we knew all historical data and were 
ready to explain any psychological phenomena. And then Junior year when 
we considered ourselves capable of settling any public question; when we criti- 
cised Descartes, admired Spinoza, sided with Rousseau, and accepted Kant with 

Thus have we progressed ; from Anabasis to ^schylus ; from Cicero to 
Plautus ; from the consideration of the propriety of using "me" as a predicate 
pronoun to the mysticism of Wordsworth, the romanticism of Keats ; from the 
irresistible and irresponsible Prep, in knee breeches to the Junior with low shoes, 
turned up trousers, and a bull dog pipe. Such is the history of our development, 
in part only, for all history must be fragmentary. 

Following Aristotle's maxim of the "golden mean" we have been active in 
other phases of college life besides class work. In athletics our first victory, and 
one well earned, was the foot ball game of our Freshman year, which we won 
from the Sophomores, by the score of 29-0. We also defeated the Sophomores in 
basket ball in our Freshman year. 

In our Sophomore year we defeated class of '09 in foot ball by the score 
9-0. Later we defeated '09 in basket ball. This year we played three inter- 

^8 The Bizarre 

class games and won them all. From our Freshman year we caii boast of an 
unbroken string of seven victories in inter-class games. 

In our Sophomore year a debate was arranged between the Sophomore and 
Freshman classes, which we won. The challenge for this debate was issued by 
'08 to all the other classes and so it can claim the honor of starting inter-class 
debating at L. V. C. 

In the social life of the school we have always striven to do our part. Some 
few of our members joined the "regulars'" in our Freshman year; others were 
converted in Sophomore year. One member has already enlisted for life service 
in the royal battalion, and one or two have confided their intentions to others 
and told them not to tell. 

One of the most delightful social functions in "o8's career was the class 
sleigh ride to Campbelltown. Pleasant reminiscences of that ride are still ex- 
changed among our members. 

Second only to this in our recollections of pleasant times together stands the 
Sophomore banquet at the Lochiel, Harrisburg, where we had all safely arrived. 
There is also the memory of a certain fake banquet by which we cruelly duped 
the class "of '09. 

This year has been a happy one of work and play intermingled, and now at 
its close, with our hands to our lips, we bid our Junior year adieu.

As Freshmen to Lebanon \' alley we came, 
That very first year we won our fame ; 
We showed everybody that '08 was brave, 
And proudly did we our gay colors wave. 
That grand game of football — basket ball, too, 

How proudly we waved

The next year as Sophs we tried our fate 

In trying to win the class debate; 

We came out victorious — we always do — 

"Ad Omnia Parati," our motto true. 

For all things prepared our whole life through ; 

Then wave, wave on high 

The Orange, and Blue. 

But Juniors we're now. Juniors indeed. 
And in every endeavor are taking the lead ; 
We're true sons and daughters of old L. V. C. 
Forever to her we will loyal be. 
And praises we'll raise as our deeds we review 

'Neath the colors of vict'ry — 

The Orange and Blue. 

May we always live up to our standard of right. 
And do just our best with all our might, 
Always trying to find some good to do 
Not all for ourselves, but for others, too. 
Then to Nineteen Eight forever be true. 

Oh, we'll never forget

tory and defeat alike have increased our loyalty to thp Brown and Blue and to 
each other, ^^'ith an honorable record we closed our Freshman accounts and 
went home to the rest and pleasures of vacation. 

When we assembled again last September in our first meeting we found 
that seven of our class members had not returned. During the year we have 
added two members and lost one. We miss those we have lost very much, but 
our spirit is unchanged and we entered into our Sophomore year with great en- 
thusiasm. We showed the Freshmen an interesting time at putting up posters. 
To bring the Freshmen before the College we introduced their president to the 
students in chapel. He was presented on the college platform and showed by his 
bearing how steadfastly he and his class color .were bound together. 

Our Sophomore banquet at Wernersville was arranged for and held with so 
great secrecy that we completely avoided suspicion and reached our destination 
before any one knew we were gone. 

Because our opponents absolutely and unreasonably ignored the rules of 
underclass athletic games it was impossible to play the Freshman-Sophomore 
foot ball game this year, although both teams had practiced hard and the day for 
playing the game was set. 

The deep snow of February suggested a sleighing party to the Freshmen. 
All but two of the class went. Those two were detained (by us) until it was too 
late to go. 

In all the activities of the College our class is well represented. In athletics, 
both in the management and on the teams, we are active. We have varsity foot 
ball, baskev ball and base ball men. In the Christian Associations and Literary 
Societies our members are prominent workers. In the Musical Clubs we have a 
number of men, and in all the social life of the college we are prominent. As we 
have begun so we will continue to advance that our class may be favorably 
known and an honor to old L. V. C.

Class History 

What a feeling- of joy, slightl)' mingled with dread, did we experience when 
about to enter our first year at Lebanon \"alley. It was not long, however, until 
we entirely overcame the latter feeling. That we were not as green as we may 
have looked, we soon proved to everybody and especially to the Sophomores. 

After we organized as the class of "1910," the first opportunity given us to 
prove that looks are sometimes deceptive, was in the color rush. What a glorious 
victory it was for us ! Though our president was assailed by four Sophomores 
he, like the rest of the Freshmen, escaped with his colors untouched. It was this, 
our first victory, which made the Juniors proud of their relation to us. 

A short time after the color rush, one was sure to see the "Violet and White" 
numerals wherever one looked. How they were painted everywhere will always 
be a cause of wonderment to the "Sophs," who always suspected some mischief 
even if they happened to espy a light in the room of a Freshman. 

Flushed with our former victory and eager to gain others, we challenged 
the Sophomores to a foot ball game. They accepted the challenge but at the very 
last moment refused to play. The very fact that the}^ were granted almost every- 
thing under the sun and then refused to play, made us think that they feared an 
overwhelming defeat. 

Another event which caused great excitement was our sleigh ride. The 
"Sophs" were so anxious to go with us that they even crept into the bottom of 
the sleigh and when returning on foot were very glad to wear the "Violet and 
White" as hat bands. We have never been able to decide whether it was our 
company or the grub which made them so bold as even to think of joining us. 
Though two of our classmates were unable to accompany us, we had a most de- 
lightful time. 

Not only were we victorious as a class but we also did much to add to the 
honor of Lebanon Valley College. There was no other class so well represented 
in athletics as ours. As many as three and four members of the Freshman class 
were on each college team organized in the past year. 

The year, so eventful for us, and which at first seemed so long, has passed 
by only too soon. Little change has taken place ; when we lost an old member 
we always found another to take his place. Though we sorely regret that this 
year has been so short and that we have but three more years at L. Y_ C. before 
us, we cannot help but feel that the entire Freshman class has become wiser by 
experience as well as by the aid of our teachers. With our motto, "Ad Semper 
Perfectum," ever in view, we hope both as individuals and as the class of Nine- 
teen Hundred and Ten to win the eoal.

Round by round, oh ! never dying fate, 

Thou the thread of life unwind 
For us, who in tliese classic halls await 

In one sweet soul ourselves to bind. 

With love bound firmly now in mind and heart. 

We lads and lasses twenty-two ; 
In work or play we'll ever do our part 

While school and life we're passing through. 

Our motto: ''Semper ad perfectum," reach; 
And, as o'er hills and vales we go. 
May violets, our chosen flowers, teach 
The love of Him who bids them grow. 

Though violet and white from the stars do hang. 

Of great achievements boast we not ; 
"Still too imperfect," in our ears just rang 

The words of those that us have taught. 

With pride we look up to these banners deep, 
Unfurled and floating through the air ; 

And as they wave the stars about them peep, 
While angels look on us with care. 

Strive then, comrades, a golden ray to cast 

Ea;ch day upon 3'our fellow men ; 
Remember well, each moment idly passed, 

Adds fruitless spoil to Nineteen Ten. 

Bear with tis now, our "Profs." and schoohnates dear, 
Although our deeds be few and small ; 

Yet without us our loved college here 
Would soon, too soon, begin to fall. 

And now, kind Fate, prolong the thread of gold. 

That we as conquerors may stand, 
And give the world what Bethlehem of old 

Gave us in the perfect Man.

6o The Bizarre 

Class History 

The tame of the music class of 1907 will never be known, for our achieve- 
ments have not been realized by the unappreciative tide of humanity. Therefore 
we are heartily grateful to the class of 1908 for giving us this opportunity to im- 
press some of our glory upon the world. 

Since our Freshman year we have always triumphed, mentally, morally, and 
physically. Then it was that we stole out one dark night and wiped the Conser- 
vatory "Sophs" out of existence. For the rest of our Freshman year we led a 
very peaceful life because no one dared to molest us. 

We were often asked, "Whatever became of the music class of 1908?" Our 
only answer was, "Oblivion." Again we had conquered, but no one knew how. 

During our Junior year we had the extreme satisfaction of seeing our colors, 
cherry and white, proudly wave over the cijpola of the Conservatory. They 
needed no guard, for there was no class left to oppose them. Our banquet that 
year was a grand success, simply "out of sight." 

Now we have attained to the dignity, slowness, and the angelic smile of the 
Senior. The hopes of some of our members have already been realized by their 
being called to take part in an opera. Our career has just commenced in this 
resolution : 

"We, the Class of 1907 of the Conservatory of Music, Lebanon A^alley Col- 
lege, do hereby solemnly promise to do our best in our own particular places in 
the world as hurdy-gurdy players, organ grinders, and minstrels."

62 The Bizarre 

Senior Music Class Poem 

I sing not songs as poets sing, 
Of nature, earth, and heav'n ; 

I sing as every one should sing: 
"Hail, Class of Nineteen Sev'n."' 

In simple verse I hail this class. 

Join with me in the lay. 
As birds in spring their hearts unfold. 

We pass our hours away. 

Is not life sweet when music fills 
Each heart, with all its glee? 

Is not life worth the while to live. 
That from all care is free? 

Why weep and fret our lives away? 

"Keep on the sunny side," 
If clouds do sometimes overhang, 

Gloom, we can always hide. 

Oh, 'tis not wealth nor fame we seek, 

For that we rise above ; 
But we do hope, through life to have 

A host of friends to love. 

To live a true and noble life. 
Some care-worn soul to cheer. 

And last of all, not least, to love 
Our "Alma Mater dear."

History of Y. W. C. A. 

The Young Women's Christian Association is the only devotional body 
which is entirely in the hands of the girls. The purpose of the Association is : 
"To lead young women into the doing of God's will and the service of His love, 
as the one satisfying mission of life." The future alone will reveal whether we 
have attained our purpose or failed. The past year has been a successful one in 
all departments. The Mission Study Class under Miss Shroyer last spring, and 
the Bible Study Class this fall under the leadership of Miss Funkhouser and Miss 
Whitehead, both had a large enrollment and were better attended than those in 
preceding years. "As You Like it," the play given last spring, met with as great 
success as the "Merchant of Venice," given the spring of 1905. Three delegates 
were sent to the conference at Silver Bay last summer. Misses Effie Shroyer, 
Iva Maulfair and Sallie Kreider. Misses May Whitehead and May Hoerner 
were the delegates sent to the State Convention at Altoona.

History of Y. M. C. A. 

The Young- Men's Christian Association pla_\s an important part in our 
land in caring for our young men. In most of our colleges it is the only Chris- 
tian influence under which the student comes. As he leaves his home and the 
parental care, the Y. ]\I. C. A. opens its doors to receive him and bring him under 
its influence. By attending its meetings and keeping in close touch with it, the 
student is constantly reminded of his duty, which he too often forgets when he 
leaves his home church or influence. The various Bible Study Classes, Mission 
Study Class and the weekly devotional meetings, conducted by the Y. M. C. A. 
give the members training for their Christian work in after life and makes them 
acquainted with the needs and problems of the day. 

At the same time that it aims to help the students as a body it aims also to 
help each individual. The members are given various opportunities to extend 
their future career by attending the different conventions. This includes the trip 
to Northfield, thus allowing the delegates to come in close touch with the most 
helpful men of the times and with new ideas presented. 

The Star Course 

The Star Course for the year 1900 and 1907 was one of the strongest series 
of entertainments that was given at Lebanon Valley for some time. The com- 
mittee was especially anxious to secure pleasing numbers and succeeded even be- 
yond expectations. The course, which was as usual under the management of the 
Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A., was secured from the Redpath Lyceum Bureau, 
and included some of the strongest men and best talent available. 

The first attraction of the season was given on the evening of November i, 
by the Manning Glee Club. It gave a highly entertaining and pleasing program. 
It was divided into three parts, the first consisted of solos and choruses, the sec- 
ond was an old time minstrel troupe, and the third a burlesque. 

The second attraction was a lecture by Dr. Thomas E. Green, on December 
8. Dr. Green spoke on "The Key to the Twentieth Century." One who has not 
heard this lecture cannot fully appreciate its wonderful charm and fitness to 20th 
century life. It was a great success and merited the approbation it received. 

Mr. Green was followed on January 12 by the Parland Newhall Co. Bell 
ringing was the great feature of this program. They gave universal satisfaction. 
Their entertainment was one of the finest ever given here. 

Mr. Packard, the Cartoonist, was here on January 29, and peopled the stage 
with "types of Uncle Sam's folk." While drawing these sketches he told stories 
about them that' made the pictures even more real. Mr. Packard is an artist in 
more ways than one. 

The last of the series was the Edwin R. Weeks Concert Co., who delighted all 
with song, impersonation and violin solos. The last number was greatly appre- 
ciated and closed a very successful season for the Star Course Committee. 

We give below the names of the committee : 

Samuel H. Waughtel, Chairman. 
Roy J. Guyer, Treasurer. 

Effie E. Shroyer. 

Helen E. Myers. W. Eby Herr. 

Erma Shupe. M. O. Billow. 

Mae Hoerner. J. L. Appenzellar. 

The Forum 

The Forum is the onl}' monthly pubHcation of the College. It was formerly 
under the management of the Philokosmian Literary Society, but in the year 
1901 is was transferred to the College. Its board of editors are elected by the 
Faculty for one year. The Forum began its career in 1888, and it has been 
gradually enlarged and extended in scope by each succeeding staff of editors. It 
is now a very attractive and interesting publication. Some of the best literary 
writings produced by the students find their way into its columns, and the editors 
gather interesting news of the doings of students, Faculty and Alumni. Finan- 
cially the paper has not been a success. The cost of publication per copy has 
always been more than the subscription price. The Forum suspended publication 
in January. This halt, however, is only temporary ; publication is expected to con- 
tinue ne.\t )-ear. We earnestly hope for its success.

Glee Club 

The 1906-1907 Glee Club season has proved a success. Owing to the fact 
that Prof. Jackson, who so ably directed the club the two previous seasons, was 
not at college this year, some trouble was experienced in securing a leader. Prof ■ 
Spessard was finally persuaded to accept the directorship, and his ability as a 
director is attested by the very excellent concerts given by the Club. 

A permanent manager was not elected until the first week of December, but 
taking charge at that late date he succeeded in booking a number of very good en- 
gagements. Had the manager been elected at the opening of the school year, 
he would without doubt have been able to Secure twice as many engagements. 

When the Club was fully organized and in smooth running order, trouble 
was experienced in securing engagements with our own churches. It seemed 
that they were not willing to secure the Club for their town and work for its 
success. Of the eleven concerts given but three were under the auspices of the 
United Brethren Church. 

The first engagement was given at Hershey on February 16. The Club was 
later absent on three trips, which were in each case attended with considerable 
success. The followinsf were the en2:a2;ements filled :

g2 The Bizarre 

History of the Year's Athletics 

Evei'A' member of the foot ball team this season was a student in one of the 
college classes. Holler not returning, Guyer was recognized by all as the best 
choice for captain. He entered upon his duties with zest and played a fine game 
all season at left half back. The season may well be called a successful one, con- 
sidering the disadvantages encountered by Coach Wilder in whipping into shape a 
team composed for the most part of new material. There were only two of last 
year's team, with which to start the season. The four Freshmen on the team 
showed exceptional ability and as the team loses only three of its players this 
year, prospects for next season are especially bright. 

Basket ball this year was a success for the most part. The team, as in the 
past two years, labored under the disadvantage of not having an adequate place 
in which to practice. However, about twenty of the students were willing to 
report at the Town Hall and two teams were formed and much good material 
developed. Knauss, this year's captain, who played a star game at forward, is the 
only player whom the team will lose by graduation, and so it can be expected that 
next year's team will better the record of this year. Besides the varsity games, 
many interesting class games were played. 

The base ball season of 1906 was not on the whole a success. Plenty of good 
material was on hand, and the failure to develop a winning team lay in all prob- 
ability in the fact, that there was lack of team work and too much individual 
work on the part of certain members of the team. The pitching stafif moreover 
was not of the strongest. Pauxtis, as captain, worked faithfully and hard to bring 
out a winning team, and set a splendid example for his team-mates, both at the 
bat and in his position at catch. 

The Bizarre Q3 

Athletics, 1908 

To our motto, "Ad Omnia Parati,"' we have been ever faithful ; and have, in- 
deed, endeavored always to be prepared to do our duty and take our part in 
maintaining the intellectual, social and religious life of Lebanon Valley College. 
Not less strong and keen has been our interest and work in the field of athletics. 

We often look back to our Freshman year with amusement, and secretly 
confess to ourselves that we appeared in large measure as Freshmen generally 
appear. This outward appearance soon wore off, however ; and we ably demon- 
strated our ability to maintain our position upon the map in our first athletic 
contest. This was surely a red letter day in our history. The members of the 
Class of 1907 thought, indeed, they could play ball ; but we quickly proved to 
them their mistake by defeating them with a score of 29-0. How sad and woeful 
they did look ! Again in basket ball, we proved our superior ability, winning by a 
score of 17 to 13, while in baseball, our challenge was not accepted. The class of 
1907 absolutely refused to meet us, for quite well did they know what the out- 
come would be. 

The following year, while we were wearing and flaunting the dignity of 
Sophomores, their cousins, the class of 1909, fared no better at our hands. To be 
sure, in our annual football meet, we won by the small margin of 5 to o ; )'et in 
basket ball, we again retrieved ourselves by defeating the class, of 1909 by the 
score of 23 to 10. The beautiful loving cup, presented by Air. Alills, '04, to the 
victor in the annual football game, is our proudest trophy. Our position of cham- 
pionship has been well maintained ; and none dare contest our claims to it. 

Those happy days, when we have thought, planned and struggled together, 
will never be forgotten. We had ever but one thought — success ; and for it w-e 
strove with all our energy. And did we win it, did we succeed ? 

Not on the football field alone, but in the classroom and in interclass debate 
we reached the goal of our ambition. We considered nothing too tedious, too 
difficult ; but we worked together as a unit, and never allowed any outside affairs 
or prejudices to interfere. Indeed all these were cast aside, when 1908 had any 
object in view, any responsible position, any honor to give away; the only thought 
of every member was for the interest and welfare of the class. And to the young- 
ladies of 1908, in particular, the class owes much of its success. They have aided 
us in our plans : have instilled into us their hopeful enthusiasm ; and have cheered 
us on to victory. To them is due all the honor which we have won. 

Q4 Tils' Bizarre 

Fair 1908, dear to us all, thy honor is untarnished; thy name without a stain; 
thou hast suffered no defeat. 

Extending- the spirit which we have shown in. out interclass contests to col- 
lege athletics, we have worked and struggled manfully for our Alma Mater. Be- 
lieving that the man who does not aid his college in as much as it aids him, will 
be of no practical value either to himself or anyone else ; we came here to re- 
ceive and to give — to receive of the invaluable training which she offers, and to 
give our time and energies to the maintaining and upbuilding of its intellectual, 
social and religious life, and, "last btit not' least," to the maintaining and guarding 
of her fair name upon the athletic field. The success of our efforts may well be 
judged from the fact that four of the men of 1908 have won their College letters 
("L. ^^") in football, four in basket ball, and two in baseball. 

Our Alma ]\Iater, though she has oft suffered defeat, we love her none the 
less, and hopefully look into the future with the ideals in which we have pictured 
her unshattered. Dear Alma Mater, you may well be proud of your sons and 
daughters of the Class of 1908; and may justly expect them to devote themselves 
with the same spirit and enthusiasm, which they have shown upon the athletic 
field, to the vocation which each shall chose; and may justly demand of them 
through all future time the same veneration and love which thev bear vou now !

The Giant's Mountain 

Hundreds of years ago there lived a great giant in the mountains of north- 
ern Norway. For ninety-nine years he had lived in peace with all the world; 
except indeed, with his father, the mighty Utgard-Lokir, who drove him out of the 
land of the gods because he was not able to compete in a wrestling match with 
Elli, Old Age. But every hundred years Lokir, the giant, came down the moun- 
tains with a terrible rumbling noise, and carried away all the flocks of sheep in 
the valley, so that the people died of hunger. 

One night the people in the valley were awakened by such a tremendous 
shaking and rocking of their houses that they were afraid to move. The next 
morning they found their flocks gone, and the shepherds dead. Far up the 
mountain they could see the great giant making his way. Fear drove the frantic 
people to their houses, nor did they again venture out until the next day. They 
then held a council to adopt some plan of securing themselves against the giant's 
invasions. Some wanted to build high walls around the place, with small en- 
trances at the head and foot of the valley. Others were determined to go in 
search of the giant's cave. One old man said, "Let one man only go. If the 
giant of the mountains sees that he is alone, he will not think his intentions evil, 
and the possibility of accomplishing his task will be all the greater." And to this 
they all agreed. 

In one of the houses, the one on the edge of the small stream that flows 
through the valley, lived Kyrmir with his son Ulner. Ulner was only twelve 
years old. He was a blue-eyed, light-haired, fantastic youth, with dreamy eyes 
that had a far-away look in them. It was this that had determined his father to 
make a musician of him, and his music was so charmingly entrancing, that as 
everyone knows, the king, when he learned of Ulner, sent for him to play at 
the court. 

One night when all the valley was hushed in sleep, Ulner played. He played 
so sweetly, and withal so sadly, that Freya, flying through the sky descended to 
see the author of such perfect, irresistible music. Then approaching the lad, she 
saw the sorrowful expression of his face and asked, "What makes thee so sad, 

"O Goddess, the giant of the mountains has carried off the flocks of sheep, 
and will come to destroy us," replied Ulner. Then thinking that it was time 

"Drink to me only with thine eyes."

102 The Bizarre 

that Lokir's visits to the valley should cease, the good Freya deviled a plan of 
ending his miserable life. 

Now it happened that the giant Lokir possessed a magnet which he always 
carried with him. Indeed it was the source of his great power, for with it he 
drew his mighty strength from the clouds. At night he kept it close by his side, 
while his snoring was louder than the roaring of the wind on the mountains. 

To this place Freya sent little Ulner. That is, she clapped her hands and 
called in the boar with the golden bristles, on whose back he rode to the giant's 
cave, up the steep mountainside. He had ridden all day when, the sun disap- 
peared from sight, and darkness fell upon the land. But Ulner rode on. At last 
he came to the entrance of the cave and dismounted. The moon appeared in the 
clouds, and sent its silver rays down upon the golden boar so that the cave was 
lighted up enough for Ulner to see. He peered about here and there in the 
shadows, when suddenly he was terrified by a heavy, rumbling noise, hke the 
falling of many waters, and right before him, stretched out on the ground lay the 
giant, the magnet by his side. Quickly Ulner seized it and rushed 
out of the cave. He had triumphed over the giant, and now the golden boar was 
carrying him back to his home in the valley. 

Lokir feeling himself grow weaker and weaker, awoke. He saw that the 
magnet was gone, and in a furious rage burst out of the cave. With wonderful 
strides he rushed down the mountain. Now he upturned heavy rocks, and again 
broke off giant trees in his mad course. Ulner, catching sight of him was dis- 
mayed. At last the monster was so close upon him that, in the hope of his own 
safety, he determined to give back the powerful magnet. He waited for Lokir to 
come nearer to him, and then with all his might he hurled the magnet toward 
him. He had done a wiser act than he could have imagined, for the magnet, 
driven with the power from the clouds, struck the giant with such force that he 
fell over dead. 

As evidence of the truth of this story, you may see today a very high moun- 
tain at the exact place where the weapon thrown by LUner struck the ground, for 
the force of it caused a great upheaval of the earth. On the top of this mound 
rests an immense head of stone, once the head of Lokir. It is a fitting monument 
of an evil monster. And LUner ? He was carried off in safety by Freya, and for 
many years afterward reigned king of the land.

Charity and Art 


I took my wife to a violin recital last night, and I nearly — Gad ! it's horrible, 
but I'll tell you the whole story. 

You see, the ladies had an idea that it would be charitable to have a great 
musician come to this little stuck-in-the-mud city, and show us what true art is. 

So they got one here, and that unshorn son of Sunny Italy is the gent who 
made all the trouble. 

We came to the theatre, my wife and I. I was dressed up in a stiff shirt — one 
must sacrifice for art, you know — and my wife dressed down in her best 
evening costume. The program started by a foreign-looking fellow coming in, 
who walked over to the piano, fingered it gently as tho' he'd forgotten something, 
and then quickly propped up the lid and retired, "amid salvos of applause." Folks 
say he was the manager. 

Now the real fun began. The door opened, and in walked a man — well, 
not exactly a man, either — he seemed to be kind of a cross between a dago and 
his grandmother. 

His hair was awfully long, and his legs awfully short, and the distance be- 
tween them at the knees awfully wide. 

Behind him walked a long kind of thing on props that weren't thicker than a 
horse-whip. This fellow's hair looked like the whitewashed side of a barn, and it 
was nailed down tight to his cranium — so he wouldn't lose it. 

Well, these fellows, after they had wiped themselves with handkerchiefs, 
and shaken off the dust, began to play, the long thing at the piano and the dago 
at the violin. The long thing played awhile all by himself, but gradually the 
dago got warmed up, and every now and then, he'd join in on the chorus with 
a few choice notes of his own. 

Then, all of a sudden, just as tho' he'd sat on a tack, the dago up and gave 
that violin Cain for fair. He rip-sawed it, and buzz-sawed it, till the notes — not 
the music, mind — flew like the money 3rou give your wife. Finally, he stopped for 
his breath and to wait for the applause to die down, which it did after a while. 

Then they tried it again and it was bad, almost too bad to speak about. They 
started out by playing kind of independent of each other, acting rather like 
Roosevelt and the Senate. After looking: around like this for a while, the da.go

hit on a tune he seemed to Hke. He played it high, he played it low, played loud, 
played soft, sometimes slow, sometimes fast. The piano fellow played on for a 
while, but soon stopped to listen. Then the dago played the tune way high up — 
sounded sort of creepy and spooky. Near the end he came down with one swoop, 
making a noise like the wail of a sick baby. 

When he began this last note, the radiator began to hiss gently. As he 
progressed, the radiator progi^essed until finally the piano fellow lit into his 
machine to help his chum out, and the piece ended in a grand uproar of screech- 
ing, hissing, banging, and the appreciative applause of the cultured audience. 
Honest, it sounded as tho' a boiler factory was trying to drown out a brass band, 
or a bankrupt husband trying not to hear his wife's request for a new Easter hat. 

This was only the end of the first half, but, since I received enough culture 
to last me forever, I left, mighty glad to find I hadn't lost anything but the 
money for the tickets, and my own self-respect. 

Art may have its pleasures, but I'm not one of the fancy kind.

Mandy and Ghon 

"A Misunderstanding" 

Chon was very unhappy, for Mandy, his Alandy, as he liked to call her, had 
walked home from church with Adam Fenstermacher, and poor John's heart 
was almost broken. He talked the matter over with his mother, and she advised 
him to "try and make up with Mandy, still." So, as he and pop had finished all 
their work and even though it was Monday nig'ht, he decided to go to Mandy's 
and see why she had so mistreated him. It was a beautiful moonlight night in 
May and all nature seemed rejoicing in its quiet way, but its beauty did not ap- 
peal to John. Usually he gazed at the moon and stars, enraptured, but tonight 
his thoughts were all of Mandy. At last he reached the house and the gate, which 
brought back so many tender recollections. He knocked at the door and soon 
Mandy stood before him. "V'y, Chon, you make me afraid, still, vat is the matter 
that you come tonight? Is your pop onct sick?" "Xo, Mandy, I came not for 
to talk about pop ; I came to see you." 

"Von't you come in awhile, Chon," said ]Mandy. He silently accepted the 
invitation and sat down on the big arm-chair. JNIandy remained standing, she was 
afraid, she knew not why. 

"Mandy, for vy did you not vait on me last night. Have I not alvays yet 
seen you home safe ?" He stopped short — how could he say more when pretty 
Mandy was standing before him with such a sad look in her sweet blue eyes. 

"Vy, Chon, you — you were talking to — to Mamie, and — and I thought that 
you did forget, vat you wanted to see me home. It vas time to go already and 
you didn't come, so I — I — went." 

"Now Mandy, Mamie chust said to me vat her pop did say to her, he vould 
not come to help my pop for to work today yet." 

"Chon, vy let's make up ; I felt bad all day. I thought perhaps you — you 
liked Mamie and me you vould no more want." 

John's heart was again happy; she still cared for him, that was evident. 
"Let's go for a walk, Mandy, it is so nice outside. It is a shame, still to keep 

"Alrite, Chon, I vill go, but vait onct, I must tell Mom." She ran out of the

How beautiful the night was ! Everything was peaceful and quiet. John 
saw beauty in everything, even the old tumble-down fence seemed the very pic- 
ture of beauty to him. Mandy looked at the quiet country scene. "Veil, isn't it 
too nice for anything, Chon?" she said. 

"Yes, you have right, Mandy," but his eyes saw no quiet country scene, only 
Mandy. "Pop says that if it vill not give rain, ve vill not have no potatoes and 
it sure!)' vill not yet, for there is no ring around the moon, is there, Chon ?" 

"No, Mandy, I can see none, but I believe ve vill have enough of taters for to

they were now back again at the gate of Mandy's home. "Now, Mandy, next

A Child Story 

The conversation between the bright faced young girl at the table and the 
dull little girl sitting on the chair was going rather slowly. 

"So you've never heard of fairies," said the girl at the table. 

"No, m'am," was the child's reply. 

"Elves, sprites, nymphs, haven't you heard about any of them? Has your 
teacher never read to you stories about them?" 

"No, m'am." 

Grace sighed softly to herself for it was hard to talk to a small person 
whose vocabulary consisted only of "no, m'am" and "yes, m'am," and who uttered 
those words in a tone which plainly said that she did not desire to carry on the 
conversation. Grace was puzzled for she did not wish to hurt the child, but her 
work in the kitchen was done and the child made no move to go. 

Grace finally broke the silence. "Don't }'ou think perhaps yoiu' mamma 
wants you?'' 

"No, m'am. I did all ni}- work before I came, but I guess I'd better go." 

She hurried out of the door, giving a side glance at the dolls grouped in a 
corner of the porch. A wild desire to seize one of them and give it a hug pos- 
sessed her, but she did not dare because Grace was standing at the window. 

The child walked slowly down the street, wishing all the tim.e that she had 
asked the cjuestion which had choked her all the time she had been in the house. If 
only she had had the courage to ask to play with dolls just a minute. A little sigh 
escaped her lips for it had been hard for her to answer Grace's questions when 
there was a question which she longed to ask but which she could not make up 
her mind to utter. It was difficult for her to luiderstand why some children had 
so many dolls and whj^ she had had only one. She could have counted on the 
fingers of one hand the times she had played with a doll. Many a time when her 
mother was away, she had taken a cushion, tied an apron around it for a dress and 
left one corner stick out for a head. It was an awkward, stumpy baby, but it 
was something to love and talk to. As soon as the time came for her mother's 
return, the baby became once more a cushion and an apron, for she dreaded 
hearing her mother say, "Hester, you big baby, haven't you anything better 
to do?" Hester felt only the shame and the apparent sarcasm, she never felt the

pity that was back of it. Many times her mother sighed to herself. "Fourteen 
years old, and she has never had a doll." 

Again Hester went over to the house where the dolls dwelt, resolved to ask 
the question which was uppermost in her mind and again she came away with her 
question unasked. The conversation was just like the first one, every question 
was answered bv "yes, m'am" or "no, m'am," and then a long silence followed 
which the child dreaded because it made it so much harder for her to ask her 

It was nearing Christmas time and the dollies were no longer seen out of 
doors, still the child had not had the courage to ask her question. She was 
always eager to go on her mother's errands, always hoping that there might be 
an opportunity to ask the question, but the opportunity never came. 

With Christmas in the air and Christmas in the heart, it was not hard to 
find a mutual subject of conversation. 

"And so you've all written your letters to Santa?" was Grace's laughing 
question, one day. 

"Yes, m'am, Ruthie and May have, but I'm too old for that." 

"What would you like most of all?" 

"A doll." 

"A doll !" Grace echoed astonished. It was a strange request for such an old- 
fashioned little woman to make. 

"Yes, m'am. I've only had one and that one Ruthie broke the first day I 
had it." 

"Have you never played with dolls at all?'' 

"No, m'am." This time the "no, m'am" was pathetic. 

Hester went home with a light heart that day, for although the question 
hadn't been asked, yet the trouble had been told and mavbe soon her wish would 
be fulfilled, for surely Grace couldn't forget a child who had owned only one doll. 

Hester, in spite of all her hoping, could scarcely realize on Christmas morn- 
ing that the dainty baby doll, with its yellow curls and dear little cap, was hers — ■ 
hers alone to hug and kiss. 

In the afternoon Baby Laura and her mother came to see what Santa Claus 
had brought. Baby Laura was three years old, and there had been no money or 
kind friends to play Santa Claus. 

"Doesn't she have anything, not even a little bit of a doll?" Hester asked. 

"None but himself can be his parallel." 

The Bizarre lOQ 

The mother shook her head sadly. It was too sad to talk about, for it was 
hard to keep the Christmas spirit in the heart when there were no presents to 
give or to receive. 

Hester's face, which had been so full of girlish pleasure, became thoughful, 
but the Christmas spirit which dwelt there, made it almost beautiful. Grabbing 
her doll as if it was a thing to be despised, she put it into Baby Laura's out- 
stretched arms. 

"It's for you. baby. I'm too old for dolls, and Ruthie will let me play with 
hers if I want to, won't you, Ruthie?" and then she whispered to herself, "I held 
it and I loved it, and that's what I've wanted to do for so long. I hugged it for 
three whole hours."

Parody on To Be Or Not To Be 

To sleep or not to sleep, that is the question, 

Whether 'tis nobler in this room to siiff^r 

The pangs of sleep that cannot be denied, 

Or to rise up and spurn this latest trouble 

And leave this room. To sleep, to dream. 

To snore ; while Prof, his lecture to us giving 

With eyes fi.xed on his book, the while 

He talks to us. Ah ! this phantom sleep, 

Returns again to press me, while on 

He talks and never ceases ; No more 

Will I resist it, come what may 

I'll sleep, perchance, I'll dream, Ah, there's the rub, 

I may not waken up in time 

For in a sleep what dreams may come 

To make me quite forget my former world 

But, no, I'll grunt and sweat under this burden 

Before this plague shall fall on me again. 

Ah, me ! I can no more bear up, 

I must now sleep or die in the attempt 

To keep awake ; The native hue of resolution, 

Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of dreams. 

With this regard, I lay my weary head, 

Upon the chair, to sleep, perhaps 

To dream, — S. W. K.

Address by Prof. Span^ler 

Delivered to the Students, December 5th, 1906 

Ladies and Gentlemen : The faculty have thought it wise that different ones 
of the members should from time to time deliver addresses from the rostrum. 
This morning it is my turn and I have chosen for my subject, The (K) Nights. 
I will begin by telling a story from "The Arabian Nights." A young man in com- 
pany with a young lady were traveling" in a railroad car. The train passed 
through a tunnel, and upon coming to light again the young lady said, "Why did 
you kiss me?" The man said, "1 didn't kiss you." The fact is, the "other fellow" 
had taken liberties. Now some fellows around here have taken liberties. There 
are about three fellows who have a monopoly on the spooning trade, and are fur- 
thermore monopolizing the halls and practice rooms of this building and are even 
getting excused from classes to promote this said monopoly. Be it there- 
fore known that this monopoly is hereby dissolved, having been 'found guilty of 
acting in restraint of trade, and be it further known that these men must now, 
immediately if not sooner, step back and give the other fellows a chance, and be 
it known finally that if the said monopoly fail to comply, they will be ordered to 
appear before the "Interstate Spooning Commission" and receive permission to 
take a ride on the cars.

Parody on Longfellow's My Lost Youth 

Often I think of the beautiful gym — 

The building that was to be ; 

Often in thoughts go up and down 

The wide oak stairs and marble hall, 

And the dr^ani is too much for me. 

And a verse of a college song 

Is haunting m}' memory still — 

For the little man's will is the wind's will, 

And his promise a false, false thing. 

I can see the beautiful building, 

As it stands ther« by the hill, — 

A building of such dimensions 

As delights my memory still. 

That building of stone and marble, 

O, how I wish it were here ! 

And the burden of that old song 

It murmurs and whispers still — 

For the little man's will is the wind's will. 

And his promise a false, false thing. 

I dream of the lads and the lassies. 

As they went there one by one. 

And played in that grand old gymnasium, — 

Played till the sun went down. 

Of course, we played basket-ball fairly, 

And won every game we played. 

But ah ! the music of that old song 

Goes thru me with a thrill — 

I'or the little man's will is the wind's will. 

And his promise a false, false thing. 

I can see them swinging the dumb-bells. 

And see the rings hanging there; 

And all the other equipments. 

Of my castle in the air: 

The gymnasium that was to be. 

And the voice of that fitful song 

Sings on and is never still — 

For the little man's will is the wind's will. 

And his promise a false, false thing. 

There are things of which I always speak. 
There are dreams that can never die. 
There are thoughts that make my strong 

heart weak, 
For O ! how could he have so much cheek 
As 'to tell us that mean, mean lie? 
."^nd the words of that fatal song 
Come over me like a chill — 
For the little man's will is the wind's will. 
And his promise a false, false thing. 

Strange to me now is the sight I see 
When I waken from my dream ; 
For only a pile of stones greet me. 
Where that beautiful building was to be. 
And my heart is aching to dream again, 
But alas ! it aches with pain. 
As I hear the moan of the wind 
Repeating that old refrain — 
The little man's will is the wind's will. 
And his promise a false, false thing.

Some said "It might do good," others said "No."

Social Life at Lebanon Valley College 

Socially the stiidents of Lebanon A'alley are well favored. In the general 
conduct of the student body there is little restraint and, except in extreme cases, 
no coercion. In social privileges the students are placed largely on their honor, 
and faith in this honor has seldom been misplaced. 

Many of the important social customs have already appeared or will appear 
under other headings, but scattered through each year is the silken chain of friend- 
ship that intertwines in our memory days and hours of more than passing in- 
terest. Surrounding Annville are spots 
of rare beauty, and these are made for- 
ever memorable by visits of the boys and 
girls. These retreats have in many 
cases become historic ground, and some 
who read this book may remember con- 
quests that have taken place beside the 
wandering Ouittapahilla or tmder the 
protecting shadow of the old Hill 

Thanksgiving diimer and Thanks- 
giving Day is a gala event that relieves 
the hard study of the winter term. A^isits 
to the boys' and the girls' rooms are 
special privileges of that day. Precedent 
has crystallized into custom, and around 
such customs as these the social life of 
the College has sprung. On Sunday 

afternoon students deem it their special right to visit the cemetery, or some other 
beautiful or secluded spot, generally in groups of two or four, or six at most, and 
there discuss the weather, birds, flowers and exams. Sometimes these pairs of 
two and two continue long after commencement and long after school days are 
over — but that belongs to another book which is not yet written. 

However we believe that this present freedom from restraint and the placing 
of students on their honor will bring about better results than coercion could pos- 
sibly do. The students have already appeared willing to share a part of the

burden of government. The Senior and Junior Classes liave elected a council 
which is composed of three members from each of these two classes. This coun- 
cil has submitted rules which have been adopted; The sentiment for student 
government is rising. If it is found that the students themselves can and will 
cope with the problems that confront it we would praise the movement, if not, a 
stronger body must remain at the helm of student government. 

Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A. Beceptions 

A long established and very pleasant custom at Lebanon Valley is that of 
the Christian Associations in giving, at the beginning of each term, a reception 
to the new students. These meetings fully accomplish their purpose to usher the 
new-comers into the swing of college life and to reunite the old students in an 
evening of pleasant enjoyment. At the different receptions formality was done 
away with, games were played and other forms of amusement entered upon, and 
every one who was present upon one of the occasions remembers it as one of the 
most enjoyable evenings spent during the college year.

An interesting social event of this college year was a library party given in 
the latter part of the Fall Term, for the benefit of the library. Each person rep- 
resented by dress or action or by some mark, the name of a book. This feature 
of the program was interesting, but the games and good time that followed were 
none the less so.

ception was held on' March 27. These receptions arc always enfoyed by all who 
attend them.

The Bizarre 12^ 

Banquet, Class of 1908 

About four weeks before the winter term of 1906 closed, we Sophomores 
were planning with the utmost secrecy for our banquet. It was to be either Har- 
risburg or Reading and finally we decided on Harrisburg. The first Friday of 
the spring term was the time we deemed best, for no one would suspect us then. 
It would take a great deal to arouse the suspicions of '09 after the grand fake we 
had played on them. The week before the banquet was one of secret anxiety 
and excitement. Suppose we should be discovered? Suppose they already knew 
about it? It was impossible to study under the circumstances. Our suit cases 
were all conveyed under the friendly cover of night, to Zuckie's place of habita- 
tion, two days before the banquet. About three o'clock, while all the world was 
asleep, two of our '08 laddies took the suit cases down to the station. 

At 7 o'clock in the evening our girls stealthily sneaked out to the station, es- 
corted by our Senior cousins and our loyal Music Student. We were almost at 
the station when our loyal Music Student friend came from the station to meet 
us, telling us that the Sophs were there, expecting something and were ready for 
an attack. INIy, but we were frightened ! But it took us only a second to recover 
and think of how easy the Freshies were, and we ran down an alley, with our one 
'08 man with us, and waited at the milk station for the 7.15 train. At last the 
train came and it had barely stopped until we were on it. What rejoicing there 
was when we found all our men there, at least we thought so. But no — where 
was Long? What could have happened to him. We finally concluded that the 
Freshmen had succeeded in capturing him. When the train stopped at Derry, who 
came into the car, with his usual grin, but our lost Long. He had seen the Sophs 
and, not being able to get on the train he was obliged to climb on the engine. The 
engineer had ordered him ofif, but no, Long wouldn't get ofif and so he had to take 
him along. 

Talk about the various experiences each of us had ! The conductor, too, 
told us several times to keep quiet, but it was an utter impossibility to stop talking^ 
We had to tell each other what various things had happened to us. App, Roger 
and Rags, in baseball suits, had gone through Lebanon at a rapid rate and got to 
the depot just a minute too late for the flyer. Stanley, thinking the Freshmen 

"His study was bent little on the Bible."

of clothes and ran through alleys, across fields, all the way up to Palmyra, where 
he boarded the 7.15 train. Billow ran along the Ouittapahilla until he got to 
Cleona and flagged the train there. 

What a good time we had at the banquet proper ! Everybody was in the 
gayest of spirits and the toasts just fitted in with the occasion. It was certainly 
a banquet fit for the gods and we did full justice to it. After our feast we had a 
grand time in the Lochiel parlors. We talked and sang, and I am afraid we also 
danced. \\'e adjourned at an early hour — in the morning, and, as a class, had 
one of the most delightful times we have ever had.

Professor Shenk's three lectures were rightly styled "Short Cuts in History." 
The first, "English History in Cartoons," was given December 15, 1906, and pre- 
sented a short but concise story of English history as preserved in the Bayeux 
Tapestry. The second, "Amenities of American Political Campaigns," was given 
January 19, in which lecture the growth and power of the cartoon was pointed 
out. The third, "Caricatures of the Days of Washington," given on February 
21, showed the censure and criticism to which Washington was exposed during 
his administration. 

Professor Lehman gave his "Lecture on the Moon" in the chapel on the 
evening of March 14. His talk was supplemented by a number of fine stereopti- 
con views. The audience was delighted to get such an interesting account of the 
earth's nearest satellite. Professor Lehman explained "the man in the moon" 
and the woman in the mon theory in a very pleasing manner. 

"Shf was a phantom of delight."

As You Like It 

The Y. W. C. A. girls, assisted by the Y. M. C. A., in pursuance of a custom, 
presented a Shakespearean play on the Saturday night preceding commencement 
week. Shakespeare's "As You Like It" was chosen and presented with much 
credit to both associations. Real trees and shrubs were used in the scenery and 
the beautiful Forest of Arden made a charming setting for this old play. Profes- 
sors Schlichter and Jackson ably superintended the practice for the play and gave 
many valuable suggestions.

Miss Fearless and Company 

In order to raise money with which to pay the debt on their Society Hall 
furniture the girls of the Clioniari Literary Society decided to present a play. 
On the evening of February i8, they accordingly presented to the public the farce 
"Miss Fearless and Co.," in the Conservatory of Music. This is a bright, clever 
comedy in three acts, dealing with college life. It was planned and managed en- 
tirely by the girls and was a decided success. Although the play showed many 
amateur touches, the various characters were particularly well brought out and 
the audience gave evidence of its appreciation and approval. 

On the evening of March i6 the girls again presented the play in the hall 
at Hershey, where it met with success as before. The girls feel that much credit 
for the successful conclusion of their enterprise is due to Professor H. H. Har- 
bour, from whom they received much valuable assistance.

School for Scandal 

The Class of 1908 gave the annual Junior play on Ma}' 31 and it was an ar- 
tistic success in man}' ways. A number of the members of the caste have credit- 
ably performed parts in other plays and so were well qualilied to put forth their 
best efforts in this, and so make it one of the best ever given at Lebanon Valley. 

The play selected by the Juniors was Sheridan's well known society play, 
"The School for Scandal." The caste is as follows : *

The Junior Class is particularly grateful to Professor H. H. Harbour for the time and 
interest he has given to the play. It is due largely to the patient and careful attention he 
has given to it that the play has been such a great success.

money for apparatus and furnishing, when a common bed, a trunk and a mattress 
is all that is required. Props, etc., should of course be kept in readiness as the

The Highfaluting and Bombastic Production

ENGLISH OXE. Oct. 9, 1906. 


It seems very obvious to all of us that students entering upon the cmbryotic 
stage of college life need some one to teach them college rules and manners, and 
since a large part of the student body of this enstitution comes from the jungle, 
it makes it double necessary for the higher classmen to discipline the greenies, 
early often, and sometimes severely before the raw recruits are able to under- 
stand that for the first time, they are noxv off their ozvn dunghill. When the 
mossbacks first arrive, it seems almost a Christian duty to give them an immer- 
sion in oil of gladness, but since the college does not provide an immersatory, 
this kind act is usually done from some third-.story window, while the rustic 
youth stands along the side of the dormitory, wondering, who keeps the cattle 
from the grain, since he left home. Sometimes these wandering Israelites seri- 
ously object to the code of college rules, and, then happens, what is known as a 
scrimmage, in which exercise the pumpkin-liuskers imagine, that they are pitch- 
ing hay or shocking corn and unless great precaution is taken these farmers walk 
off with a sophy under each arm, and as they go make a strange noise, that re- 
semble the sound of one of their pet animals at home in the jungle. 

This undignified scene usually takes place in the conservatory, much to the 
disgust of the higher classmen and dignified faculty, and it must be admitted 
that the athletic field would be a more appropriate place, here results would at- 
tained and object lessons could be latight. It would also save the trouble for 
both of the class to run to the printer and have posters printed containing nothing 
but silly imaginations, for one of the most piteous spectacles is the attempt of a 
greeny trying to write something original.

/^ UR story is written. The Fates liave closed the 
book. It passes from the editors to the readers. 
Two criticisms will necessarily be given, "Why did 
you roast me so hard?" and "Why didn't you roast the 
other fellow harder?" To both we answer that we 
have tried hard to roast all. Some parts of this book 
are serious and show our school life in its serious mo- 
ments ; other parts are more or less funny. If you 
look again, you will ma)'be see two pictures of your- 
self. Choose the better as the true one and call the 
other a joke. 

I write upon the last page of this book 

A tender word of love, because I knew 
That you would look upon the last leaf first, 
Ere you had read the title of it thorough.
