Biography 



EV. LAWRENCE KEISTER, D.D., was born near Scottdale, Pa., 
the youngest child of a large family. His father was Solomon 
Keister, the impress of whose fine personality and beautiful Christ- 
ian character is seen in all of his children. He was a spiritual father, 
to many others who came in contact with him; and many young men have 
been helped by his sweet spirit, kindly admonition and generous material 
help. His large benefactions knew no partiality in the work of his chosen 
church. 

The son had the good fortune to be brought up on the farm ; and he 
shared all the benefits that are incident to such open air life. His early 
training was secured in a country school, which he attended until he com- 
pleted all that this school offered. This was supplemented by reading and 
private study, the value of which he early learned. 

In the fall of 1877 he entered Otterbein University, and graduated in 
the class of '82. The following autumn he entered the School of Theology 
of Boston University, from which he graduated, with second honors, in the 
spring of 18S5. He also studied philosophy under Prof. Borden P. Brown 
at this University. He has been honored' with the following degrees: B.S., 
Otterbein; A.B. and A.M , Leander Clark; S.T.B., Boston University; D.D. 
Lebanon Valley. 

During the years spent in Boston Dr. Keister made the acquaintance of, 
and came into fellowship with, Bishop Phillips Brooks, whose great preach- 
ing, and heart-to-heart, fatherly converse, in the Bishop's own study, have 
exercised a profound influence in his life. 

He spent two years and eight months on the Pacific Coast, where he 
visited the principal cities and engaged in fruit growing for over two years. 
But such could not be his life's work, for his talents demanded other em- 
ployment; and in obedience to a voice, not his own, he returned to the East 
and took up the work of the pastorate in Allegheny Conference Here he 



served several of the most important stations, Wilkinsburg, Scottdale and 
Mt. Pleasant. From the last named he was elected to the presidency of 
Lebanon Valley in June 1907. 

He has published lectures in Homiletics ; the Christian's Calendar, a 
vest pocket companion containing selections from the Bible and the writings 
of men, together with notes of interpretation by the author. It is designed 
to give daily spiritual furnishing for the Christian; also a small volume en- 
titled, Parables for the People. It is written for him whose citizenship is 
in the kingdom of heaven, and is a guide to him in all that is vital in his 
conduct as a Christian citizen. It presents Christ as the life of the Christian 
and as his ideal in conduct. It proves to be most helpful to him who strives 
to be perfect as the Father in heaven is perfect. 

The presidency of Lebanon Valley College at this time is "a great oppor- 
tunity. It is such because of conditions that have root in the past. But it 
is, as well, a great responsibility. Its duties are tiresome and burdensome, 
and no small man can measure up to them. And yet a man — the man- — 
has been found. Too big to use any position he has ever held for his per- 
sonal advancement, and modest and generous to a fault, he at last finds 
himself where at the call of duty, he shows himself capable of working out 
the solution of an untoward situation. 

The recently equipped laboratories, the new walks and other improve- 
ments, the peace and quiet of a very successful year, a contended and loyal 
student body, an enlightened and more interested constituency and large 
plans for the future that meet with favor from all who hear of them, and 
more beside, all attest the wisdom of the choice of the Board of Trustees in 
June 1907. 




Foreword 



t EST we forget the pleasantries of 
youth and college days, and to 



crystallize the unconscious word and 
deed, which otherwise would be lost 
to us in the future, we have pre- 
pared this Bizarre as the contribution of the class 
of 1909 to the writen history of student life at 
Lebanon Valley. 

We send our book to our readers without apology 
as the result of our best effort to make an annual 
worthy of our class and our college. We make no 
qlaim of entire originality, but cordially acknow- 
ledge and thank editors of other classes and colleges 
for valuable hints and advice. 

If our friends are pleased and college spirit 
intensified we shall be amply rewarded for our work. 

The Editors.

OUR COLLEGE 

And here's my pledge to L. Y. C. 
My measure full, my offring free. 

Let all these halls with life abound, 
Joyous and thoughtful and profound. 
Let merry laughter ring again, 
From lips of maidens and of men ; 
While serious thought finds serious speech, 
From lips of taught and those who teach. 

Arise, thou Star of L. V. C. 
Shine out with greater brilliancy, 
Illuminate the min 1, the soul ; 
Make human thoughts to us unroll ; 
And thoughts divine our hearts impress 
While Christ our Lord each heart shall bless. 

So here we pledge ourselves to thee, 
Thou undimmed Star of L. Y. C.

History of the College 

REVIOUS to the year 1865 there was, in intelligent circles of the 
United Brethren Church considerable discussion on the need of a 
higher educational institution in eastern territory. Hence in res- 
ponse to the very general and growing desire, frequently expressed 
by both the laity and the ministry, the East Pennsylvania Annual Confer- 
ence at its session in March, 1865, held at Lebanon, passed resolutions 
deciding to establish such an institution of learning in some conveniently 
located town within the limits of the Pennsylvania Conference. One year 
later, namely March 1866, the Conference accepted for this purpose the 
grounds and building of what was then known as the Annville Academy. 




LADIKS IioKMIToKY 



At the Annual Conference session held at Annville March 1867, the 
Board of Trustees was given full power to purchase additional ground and 
to erect thereon an addition building. This building as planned, included 
a large refectory with kitchen and other culinary attachments on the ground 
floor, a large chapel, a president's office, reception room and four recitation 
rooms on the first floor; recitation and dormitory rooms on the second floor, 
and dormitory rooms on the third floor. This building was completed in 
1868, and the first regular commencement exercises occurred in the chapel 
of this building on the sixteenth day of June, 1870, on which occasion two 
gentlemen and one lady were graduated. Very early the practice in public 
oratory and debate was recognized on all sides. With a full recognition of 
these facts the young men of the College were not slow to secure an organi- 
zation to accomplish these ends. Early in April, soon after the opening of 
the spring term of 1S67, a constitution and by-laws for a society were 
drafted. The name Philokosmian was suggested by President Vickroy, then 
the President of the College. The Philokosmian thus ranks as the first 
regularly organized literary society of the College. 




BOYS "DORMITORY 

President Vickroy wisely directed the affairs of the institution for five 
years. He was a man of fine presence, a genial companion, a first class 
financier and a successful administrator of the affairs of the College. 

In 1S71 Prof. Lucian Hammond was elected president of the College. 

During his administration the Clionian Literary Society was founded. 
This society consisted entirely of girls and soon became a vigorous and 
efficient force in promoting the principles and practice of public reading and 
speaking. 

In the summer of 1876 new life was infused into the College by the 
election of Rev David DeLong as president. During the winter of 1S77 a 
movement was started to organize another literary society for young men. 
The name Kalozetean Literary Society was suggested and accepted. Also 
during Pres. DeLong's administration the musical department was organized 
and a regular course established. The organization of this department was 
a wise movement as is evidenced at this day, and its excellent work at once 
popularized the institution. 

In the summer of 1883 a large two-story frame building was erected on 



-12— 



College Avenue, which contained a fine and well lighted art room, several 
music rooms for practice, the entire department of natural scieoce, and the 
College library. 

In the fall of 1887 Rev. Edmund S. Lorenz was elected President. 
During his administration a course for advanced post graduate work was 
prepared and adopted by the Board of Trustees. To him also belongs the 
credit of establishing a College paper known as " The College Forum." 

In the spring of 1S89 Rev. Cyrus J. Kephart, D.D., was elected Presi- 
dent. He served but a single year. Because of some discouraging condi- 
tions at this time the question of re-locating the College was seriously 
considered but nothing came of it. Dr. E. Benjamin Bierman was elected 
to the Presidency. He had been connected with the College since its 
founding and his administration shows an interest and faithfulness which 
did much toward building up the College. During this time the college 
celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary and showed marked improvement. 

Dr. Bierman was succeeded in 1897 by Dr. Hervin U. Roop, who held 
the office until January, 1906. During this term the entire college changed 
its appearance. In 1900 a large wing was added to the main building. 
The Engle Conservatory of Music, the gift of Mr. B. F. Engle, a life-long 
friend of the institution, was furnished in 1899. In 1904 — '05 the College 
received a gift from Mr. Andrew Carnegie, a beautiful library building. 

The foundation for a new Ladies' Dormitory' was being laid when early 
in the evening of December 24, 1904, fire broke out in the main building 
and quickly destroyed it. This was a terrible blow to the college but 
through the untiring efforts of the President and others the winter term 
was delayed only a week. By the next school year the new ladies' dormi- 
tory was occupied and a few months later the men went into their new 
dormitory. A new administration building was also under roof by the close 
of the year 1905. 

From January to March, 1906 the Executive Committee and faculty 
managed the affairs of the College when Rev. A. P. Funkhouser was elected 
President holding the position but one year. On June 12, 1907 Dr. Law- 
rence W. Keister assumed the duties of President. In September of this 
year the Administration Building was occupied giving much pleasure with 
its pleasant recitation rooms and well equipped labratories. It also contains 
the President's and Treasurer's offices, the Philokosmian Literary Society 
Hall and a large art room.

In the Halls of L. V. C. 

Fair autumn days are past and o'er, 

But never a care have we ; 
For we fill the hours with the richest lore, 

In the halls of L. V. C. 

Cold winter winds will come and go, 

Yet never a care have we ; 
The joys of learning keep our hearts aglow, 

In the halls of L. V. C. 

Sweet Spring will smile, then step aside, 

Still never a care have we ; 
Perennial Spring must ever abide, 

In the halls of L. V. C. 

The voice of Summer will scatter us far, 

Still never a care have we ; 
For there's naught on earth can our hearts debar 

From the halls of L. V. C.

Our College 

To Lebanon Valley 

O college ever noble, 

O college ever free, 

May all thy sons be willing 

To do their best for thee ! 

The light of God is o'er thee, 
His spirit in thy breast ; 
From thee the earth has blessing 
And hope for its oppress. 

No worthy aims go begging 
For aid beside thy door, 
Without receiving plenty 
From out thy lavish store. 

Thy sons will long remember 
Thy loyalty to right, 
And with thine inspiration 
For truth will keep the fight. 

O college ever noble, 
O college ever free, 
Thine every son is willing 
To do his best for thee.

I must write this history. But it is not hard, for 1908 has been a 
unique aggregation since its Freshman year. We were told then by 
a speaker in chapel that we might be lawyers, doctors, college presi- 
dents or hod carriers. And so we may; we have not decided yet. There 
were a score of us then and we spent most of our time making history. In 
19 — , when we return leading some '08 Juniors by the hand, first of all we 
will take them to the athletic field, and pointing to the gridiron, we will say 
" right there in 1904 occurred one of the biggest surprise parties that ever 
took place at Lebanon Valley College. We had challenged 1907 to a foot- 
ball game. They accepted. We prepared for that game as if we were go- 
ing to play Yale ; the Sophomores prepared for it as if they were going to 
play Annville High School. The score was 29-0, in our favor." 

Besides the football game we defeated '07 in basket ball. In Junior 
year we won three inter-class games. From Freshman year we have an un- 
broken string of seven victories. In Sophomore year we won the inter-class 
debate from '09. In Junior year we published an annual of which we are 
all proud. We will always remember the sleigh ride to Campbellstown in 
our Freshman year, the fake banquet in our Sophomore year, and the real 
one at the Lochiel in Harrisburg. 

These have been some of our material achievements, but we have also 
advanced mentally and spiritually and this, also, is a part of our history. 

One of the things we have learned beyond the chance of forgetting is 
the value of the ideal. We have learned that the charm and greatness of 
life lie in the grandeur of its possibilities. Every new stnd'y has taught us 
this. We have learned to require of a man only that he live for the ideal. 
He may have failings, he may oppose lis, we may understand him but if he 
is a constant seeker of the ideal we give to him B+ in the school of life, 
where no one makes an A. This we hope we have learned, as also the great 
lesson of charity. In the class of social spirit, of class spirit and of individ- 
ual competition we have come to believe that there is so much bad in the 
best of us and so much good in the worst of us that it does not behoove any 
of us to be talking about the rest of us. 

Last of all we have, we hope, formed a loyal college spirit. We do not 
picture our Alma Mater as a groupe of buildings, a faculty, a curriculum and 
a student body, but as a spiritual something representing all that is best 
and finest in all these. To this Alma Mater may we always be true and 
though we mav soon be forgotten may we never forget.

1908 POEM. 



Our college days will soon be o'er, 
Fond mem'ries soon they'll be, 
But ever in our hearts we'll hold 
Our love for L. V. C. 

" Ad Omnia Parati " has 

Our motto ever been, 

" Prepared for all things" in our life 

And all our battles win. 

When on the world's vast sea afar, 
Our thoughts shall turn to thee, 
Thou who hast been our guiding star, 
Thou dear old L. V. C. 

Amid the trials of daily task, 
Amid the toil and din and strife, 
Will come, with never failing cheer, 
The thoughts of college life. 

O Alma Mater, ever true 
To thy dear name we'll be ; 
We'll do our work with earnest zeal, 
In honor of L. V. 

O college, thou to us most dear, 
To thee we'll faithful be ; 
And in our future life's career, 
Revere old L. V. C. 

And always will we do our best, 
Inspired by thy light, 
We'll stand for loyalty and truth, 
For charity and right.

Albert D. Flook, P.L.S. 
Myersville, Md. 

" Adam ", business manager of 
the Bizarre, who alphabetically at 
least, stands at the head of his class, 
claims Myersville, Md., as his birth- 
place and undoubtedly, sometime in 
the coming years, the claim will be 
reciprocated. This gentleman says 
he worked on a farm, which statement 
we are inclined to doubt, altho his 
actions bear ample testimony that he 
at least resided there. 

It is a source of undying regret that 
he professedly prefers the society of 
Hershey and Lebanon to that of our 
own institution. After graduation, 
if such a thing is possible, he will 
with judicious moderation pursue a 
course in medicine. 




Lena May Hoerner, C.L.S. 
Mechanicsburg, Pa. 
Lena May Hoerner was born in the 
country and lived there until six years 
ago, when she moved to Mechanics- 
burg, her present home. May is the 
smallest girl in the class but the most 
rapid walker. She belongs to the 
Students Volunteer Band and has very 
many qualities which fit her for her 
chosen caieer. Her greatest fault is 
her quick temper, but we believe that 
she will have conquered that before 
she becomes a " Stray-er " and wanders 
from her own land into the foreign 
country to teach the poor heathen 
how thev should live. 





George Nissley Hoffer, K.L.S. 
Hummelstown, Pa. 
This young man first beamed upon 
the world at Hummelstown. George is 
a mathematical genius. He builds au- 
tomobiles, repairs Prof. Roeder's bi- 
cycle and studies chemistry. Between 
laboratory periods he visits some of the 
class rooms and hears the recitations. 
We regret very much to record that 
his entire social career has been one 
vast case of " sour grapes. " Georgie 
is one of the most popular fellows in 
the institution and in spite of the afore- 
said case of sour grapes he belongs to 
the "triumvirate" of social dictators. 
When his work at school is done he 
will retire at last to Hummelstown, 
build a garage and devote his talents 
to the invention of a patent convey- 
ance to transport his native village to 
some habitable portion of the earth. 




Grace B. Lowery, CL.S. 
Harrisburg, Pa. 
Miss Lowery comes to us from the 
Harrisburg High School, class of '06. 
Soon after reaching L,. V. C. and hav- 
ing tried the Freshman class, she de- 
cided that she could take the work 
here in three years, so entered the 
class of '09. She shows a decided in- 
clination to be much alone to study, 
think and dream She has a few pet 
" hobbies ", such as, English and Ger- 
man and delights in arguing about 
" personality " and all its interesting 
phases. Her father hopes she will 
follow a literary career and we hope 
she will not disappoint him for she 
has much ability and can do splendid 
work once she is fully determined to 
do it. 



Amos B. Moyer, P.L.S. 
Sunbury, Pa. 

Mr. Amos B. Moyer was born at 
Chapman. He requested that this 
fact be carefully recorded so that 
if any of his family read this book 
they will know that even now, when 
he is a Junior in college, he is not 
ashamed to acknowlege his birthplace. 
After budding the young ideas of that 
region for about fifteen years he was 
persuaded to come to Lebanon Valley 
to instruct the faculty of this institu- 
tion. l 'Aby" possesses a remarkable 
propensity for absurd interrogation. 
The minimum number of questions 
which he has propounded in one reci- 
tation is nineteen. 

After graduation "A.B." will proceed 
directly to a seat on the supreme 
bench. 

George M. Richter, K.L.S. 
Halifax, Pa. 

This reverend gentleman was born 
at Halifax. He literally hurls himself 
into any proposition which chances 
to attract his attention in a way cal- 
culated to put an indolent minded 
person into the psychopathic ward. 
This may to a certain extent atone for 
his eagerness to assist or rather to sug- 
gest, otherwise we might be tempted 
to class him under the vulgar head 
of a "Butter In." 

Mr. Richter is a rare addition to the 
class because of the fact that he is 
never mistaken. Time and time again 
the Professors would have gone far 
wrong but for this precious mind. 

After graduation he will attend 
a theological seminary until sufficient- 
ly cargoed for sky piloting.

Walter V. Spessard, P.L.S. 
Chewsville, Md. 

Mr. Spessard woke up one fine 
morning and said " I will see to it that 
this world is run on strictly business 
principles," whereupon Mr. Spessard's 
body started to catch up to his matur- 
ed mind. 

Mr. Spessard hails from a family 
with which it is as natural to sing as 
it is for a mule to bray. This may, to 
a certain degree, account for Mr. Spes- 
sard's social standing for Walter is, as it 
were, a lion at the Ladies' Hall and 
always starring among the ladies. After 
the completion of his course Mr. 
Spessard may be induced to accept the 
Presidency of one of the larger univer- 
sities or else a seat in the U. S. Senate. 



J. Warren Stehman, K.L.S. 
Mountville, Pa. 
Jonas ws.s born near Mountville, 
Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, 
the land flowing with tobacco and 
politicians. Stehman believes in 
innate ideas and innate abilities for 
he says he remembers very distinctly 
that when he landed he had firmly 
gripped in his right hand a suit case 
Containing his batting average, but 
somewhere thru his journey he has 
lost it. His pet theory is that man in 
all his actions follows the line of least 
resistance. So earnestly has he upheld 
this doctrine by word and deed that he 
was several years ago honored with 
the degree L.L. (Lazy Lew.) He will 
become a political boss of Lancaster 
County. 



Deleth Eber Weidler, P.L.S. 
Allentown, Pa. 
Deleth Eber Weidler was born at 
Highspire, Pa. He is a very nice 
young man, in fact he's awfully nice ; 
he doesn't do a single naught} - thing. 
He is very popular too and is a mem- 
ber of the Triumvirate of Social 
Directors. He possesses the happy 
faculty of knowing how to stand in 
with all the girls without indulging 
any of them. He takes part in 
every enterprise about the college and 
is continually complaining because 
there are not more competent men 
around the institution so that he 
wouldn't have to do everything. 
Weidler is the editor-in-chief of this 
book and its reception will go a great 
way toward shaping his destiny. 




Edna Delilah Yeatts, CL.S. 
York, Pa. 

Edna Delilah Yeatts, commonly 
known as " Peanuts," is a rare product 
from York County. She is small, as 
her nickname would suggest, but her 
womanly qualities are capable of satis- 
fying the most aesthetic desires of 
any of her opposite sex. 

Edna, it is sad to relate is very fond 
of sleep, but she says she can't help it. 

We all, I am sure, are very anxious 
to see Miss Edna get along in the 
world, but to our deepest chagrin we 
sometimes are unable to tell in which 
direction she is 'Ap't to go. However, 
with all our uncertainty, we can com- 
fortably say that she has lofty ideals 
and cares mostly for the big things in 
life.

History 




E, the Class of 1909, in retrospection wander as through a mirror- 
maze in attempting to recall for you the past victories and suc- 
cesses which have crowned our class. But not because they do 
not linger tenderly in our memories and stand out prominently 
as mementoes, never to be forgotten. We do not wish to impress upon you 
too forcibly, however, that little word " ego ", but desire rather to give you 
a fair picture and leave you to judge of us for yourself. 

There were twenty-six of us in the Freshman year and probably we 
were a little green, but wise enough, however, to paint our numerals on the 
smoke stack where nothing but time could efface them. The Sophomore 
year was a very successful one in its literary pursuits. We won the Fresh- 
man-Sophomore debate which brought great credit to the class. 

Our success for that year was not exclusively along literary lines, how- 
ever, for Bobbie, the president of the Freshman class was adorned gorgeous- 
ly in green one morning, and laid upon the platform during chapel exercises, 
to the great surprise and chagrin of his class-mates. 

We enjoyed also that year a very delightful banquet at Wernersville. 
We rode away one Thursday afternoon, leaving the poor Freshies gazing in 
our direction with eager, longing eyes, and returned Friday noon with colors 
flying. 

While gazing at this picture, we would have you remember that there 
were a few failures interspersed among our successes, but they only gave us 
more ambition to strive harder to reach the goal. They also taught us the 
lesson that we must learn before entering upon our life's careeer ; that true 
success only comes with struggle and hard work. In leaving you, we would 
paint a bright picture for each member of the class of 1909. We realize 
that each one has his peculiar talents and ambitions, and we believe that he 
will hew out for himself a path through the rock of harsh criticism, strife, 
and competition, along his own special line, thus developing his talents to 
their fullest extent, and accomplishing for his race just what God meant 
that he should accomplish. 



1909 Poem 

Dear 1909, 'tis thee we hail 

In songs of earnest praise, 
Dear 1909, for thee we've worked 

In past and present days. 

For thee we lived, for thee we strove, 

Thy name we raised to stars above, 

To thee we give our fondest love, 
Dear 1909. 

Brave 1909, with numbers few 

You've fought a noble fight. 
Brave 1909, with purpose true 

You've battled for the right. 

Your duties just ne'er left undone, 

Your battles fought, your victories won, 

E'en though thy life is but begun 
Brave 1909. 

Brave Brown and Blue, three years thou'st waved 

Above this loyal band, 
Brave Brown and Blue, beneath thy folds 

We've labored hand in hand 

What e're the future has in store, 

Thy motto shall we ere adore 

And ever love thee more and more, 
Brave Brown and Blue. 

Dear L. V. C, Thee we would sing 
Before this song is through, 

Dear L. V. C, whate'er we are, 
We owe it all to you. 

Within thy walls we've worked aud dreamed, 
Our purpose steeled, our learning gleaned, 
While high above thy torch has beamed 
Dear L. V. C.

History 

O write the history of the class of " 1910" is no easy matter, though 
it is the history of two short years at Lebanon Valley. But those 
two years! What pleasant times and glorious victories lume up 
before us as we hurridly glance back over them. And it is recall- 
ing these delightful memories which shall constitute our history. Were I, 
as historian of the class of 1910, to attempt to mention only the most im- 
portant and most delightful of these I should not know which to choose. 
Therefore, I shall try to give a brief but just review of our Freshman and 
Sophomore years at Lebanon Valley. 

Freshman year our victories greatly outnumbered our defeats as might 
have been expected. Our very first victory was the color rush. Such a 
victory was never seen at Lebanon Valley ; every Freshman escaped with 
his colors untouched. There were also the foot-ball, basket-ball and base- 
ball games, the former of which the Sophomores, because of some secret 
fear, refused to play ; all these are indeed to our honor. The Freshman- 
Sophomore debate, to our regret but by no means to our discredit, was won 
by the Sophomores. Nor must the sleighing party to Schaefferstown be 
omitted; for so great was the delight and excitement of escaping the "Sophs" 
that that is the first thing we think of when the ride is mentioned. 

Our Sophomomore year was just as, if not more, successful though we 
were no longer in a state of greenness. As in the preceding year the game 
of foot-ball was not played owing to some inability or other on the part of 
the Freshmen, giving us the victory. The bag rush, controlled by the 
Junior and Senior Coucil, was our first defeat. As usual the Freshmen won 
by hard fighting, for the victory, if such it may be called, was by a small 
three inches. Although we prevented the Freshmen from gaining other 
victories ; we were kind enough to see that each one had a private escort 
consisting of several policemen, whose duty was to see that they arrived 
safely at their banquet. 

One more thing must be added before our history is complete, that is 
our banquet at the Lochiel, Harrisburg. The Freshmen were so bewildered 
that day that they sought us just where we were not. That banquet with 
its innumerable courses shall ever be remembered as the most delightful 
time of our life at Lebanon Valley and " that isn't saying much either." 

Thus far our life at L. V. C. has been one grand success. As we were 
able to overcome our greenness and to rid ourselves of the so-called "Soph" 
characteristics, if indeed we ever had any, we know that we shall live up to 
all the possibilities of our Junior year. 



1910 Poem 

Of what achievements boasts our glorious class, 
On her true zeal let Future judgment pass : 
Ambitious youths with hearts and souls afire, 
No failures daunt them and no labors tire : 
In lithe-limbed boys, and maidens fair, our pride, 
Unwavering zeal strikes every foe aside. 
No joy to us doth wanton pleasure yield, 
Stern duty calls — all hasten to the field. 
Behold our victories already won, 
A glorious past, the future but begun. 
Beguiling pleasure spreads her charms in vain, 
To arduous tasks we bend 'till none remain. 
From heights of fame our standards proudly wave, 
To reach our goal hard battles still we'll brave. 
Will Father Time for us no crowns prepare, 
No laurels give for aged heads to wear? 
Will life be fraught with happiness and joy, 
Or will our eagerness those boons destroy ? 
Our friends' esteem and children's love will mould 
For us a wreath more fair than crown of gold. 
And daily tasks well done will bring reward 
Wherein the fruits of peace and joy are stored. 
Our names we'll write : to us the world will turn 
To find a tiuth, or noble lesson learn.

History 



HE Freshman class was secretly organized early in the year. A 
Junior called us together in the old Academy building, and soon we 
had a yell and a motto. We gave our yell for the first time at the 
student's reception, and distributed printed copies of it to all present. 

It was on the night of the reception that our splendid career really be- 
gan. The Sophomores, dumbfounded at seeing some Freshmen accompany 
co-eds home, instantly plagiarized an old " State " poster and pasted samples 
of it in a few prominent places in town, and over the college buildings. But 
we quietly removed the posters, except those on the college buildings, which 
the Sophomores themselves humbly removed, and the next morning in chapel 
we distributed cards on which were printed our sincere regrets that the 
Sophomores lacked sufficient gray matter to compose an original poster. 

One night we very unexpectedly met the Sophomores, who were schem- 
ing for ■our humiliation. We succeeded in dividing their party and after a 
severe fight on the campus, were declared victors. 

Next we met the Sophomores in the bag-rush. When the two classes 
lined up on the gridiron, they seemed very evenly matched. However, 
when after fifteen minutes fighting the signal was fired to cease, the class of 
Nineteen Hundred aud Eleven was again victorious. 

Soon followed our banquet at the Wallace House, Lebanon, December 
3, 1907. The banquet was a grand success. Only two of our members were 
unable to attend, one of them being sick. One thing more which will 
amuse us in the years to come : the Sophomores gallantly escorted a few of 
us to the hotel. We did our best to return the compliment by entertaining 
one of their members on the night of their banquet. 

" Ad Astra per Aspera " has been continually before us and we have 
determined to idealize its meaning. We realize that we have not yet reach- 
ed the stars, but by the help of our instructors, believe that an instrument 
has been made in the form of the class of Nineteen Hundred and Eleven 
that will measure the distance in spite of all obstacles.

1911 Poem 

With loyal hearts and active minds, 
In the fall of Nineteen Seven, 

We came to thee, dear L. V. C, 
The Class of Nineteen Eleven. 

A hearty welcome thou didst give, 
Of course there was a reason ; 

Thou knewest well who came to dwell, 
The Class of Nineteen Eleven. 

Thy President has wisely said, 

Quite early in the season ; 
These buds, as such, they promise much, 

The Class of Nineteen Eleven. 

Time and deeds all go to prove 
His words were fitly chosen ; 

Loyal to be, striving are we, 
The Class of Nineteen Eleven. 

The Sophomores with ease can tell, 

As it to them was proven ; 
A pistol shot, we were on top,. 

The Class of Nineteen Eleven. 

As one by one the days go by, 

The bonds of friendship strengthen ; 

No evil scar shall ever mar 
The Class of Nineteen Eleven. 

Since every loyal heart and hand, 

In love we thus have given ; 
We'll stand by thee, dear L. V. C, 

The Class of Nineteen Eleven. 

Then let us rally, one and all, 

Our paths through life to brighten ; 

And to the stars, through all that bars 
The Class of Nineteen Eleven.

History 




E the music class of nineteen hundred and eight highly appreciate 
the honor bestowed upon us by the Juniors, in allowing us to 
explain at least a few of the things we have done. 'Tis said 
that history repeats itself. This may be disproved, for there is 
not the slightest possibility of the history of the Music Class of nineteen 
hundred and eight ever being duplicated; not that its members have 
achieved everything which they have striven for, but that they have accom- 
plished marvelous things. 

One beautiful day in the autumn of nineteen hundred and seven there 
assembled in the classic halls of our Conservatory of Music, a band of young 
maidens and a few bashful youths. And thereafter it was known that the 
Conservatory of Lebanon Valley College would graduate in nineteen hundred 
and eight the largest class in its history. 

The advent of the class into the life of the college was quiet and 
unpretentious, yet its influence was felt and acknowledged in every avenue 
of activity. One morning, soon afterwards, we all came to chapel wearing 
our colors — garnet and green. Then you should have heard the class of 
nineteen hundred and nine lament the fact that they could not share the 
honor with us. They tried hard to take our ribbons from us, but they 
found that they were " up against a stiff proposition " and now feel so 
extremely small and ridiculous that they haven't said a word since. 

The wearers of the garnet and green are always among the first. Not 
only are we called upon to contribute a large share to the enjoyment of the 
public, but we are very popular in the " Social Life " of the college, also 
Our Class banquet was, without a doubt, the greatest event of the college 
year. We simply cannot find words to describe it. And none, save the 
class, will ever know the secret of that, " the greatest of all events." 

Only a few more days are left to us. Then we'll say farewell to our 
Alma Mater, perhaps forever, each to go his own way and take up his own 
burden, applying the knowledge gained while at college and never forget- 
ting our classmates nor Lebanon Valley College. 



Music 1908 Poem 

Music can kindle where it will, 

The fire that in the heart resides. 

Music healeth every ill, 

In mystery its soul abides ; 

And tasks in hours of insight will'd, 

Can be through hours of gloom fulfilled, 

With aching hand and weary head, 

We practice then some mournful tune; 

Its melody to us seems dead 

And harmony is wrapped in gloom. 

But suddenly there comes a light, 

Than which none else could be more bright, 

O music, thou to whom the power 

Is given to stir the hearts of men, 

Help us in these most treasured. hours 

To nobly strive some good to win. 

May richest melody instill 

In us love for His Holy will 

O music-band of nineteen eight, 

Always find some good to do ; 

And going out to cruel fate. 

Be to your Alma Mater true ; 

With all thy will her will to do 

Remember what she's been to you.

Young Women's Christian Association 

The past year's work in our Association has been very successful in 
many ways. The same standard has been upheld as in former years, with a 
few changes. The Association was helped much by two visits of the State 
Secretary, Miss Dora Dyer. In November the Y. W. C. A. week of prayer 
was observed by the Association. The Bible Study class led by Miss Engle 
and Mrs. Keister was well attended. Misses Grace Lowery and May 
Hoerner were the delegates to the summer conference at Silver Bay. In 
February the President, Miss Alice Zuck was sent as delegate to the Terri- 
torial Conference held in Philadephia. In March Misses May Hoerner and 
Edna Yeatts represented the Association, at the International Missionary 
Convention in Pittsburg.

Young Men's Christian Association 

The Young Men's Christian Association takes an important place in 
our institution. By attending its meetings the student is constantly 

reminded of his duty to God and his fellow men. Bible study and Mission 
study classes together with the weekly devotional meetings give the 
members opportunity for Christian work and make them acquainted with 
the needs and problems of the day. 

The aim of the Association is to help each student to develop body, 
mind and spirit. Various opportunities are given to members to extend 
their knowledge of the work by attending the different conventions and 
conferences of the Association. During the past year two delegates at- 
tended the Students' Conference at Northfield, two attended the National 
Convention which was held at Washington, D. C, two represented the As- 
sociation at the District Convention in York, Pa., and one at the Connells- 
ville State Convention. In this way the most active men in the Association 
come to know the most helpful men of the times and the most up-to-date 
methods of Christian work.

Tennis 

Owing to the fact that the Board of Trustees of the college made a 
ruling, several years ago, that all the tennis courts must he removed to the 
athletic field, the splendid tennis spirit, which at one time prevailed, when 
the "Bison Club" and the "Quittaphilla Club" each maintained their 
own courts on the campus, has completely died out, largely due to the great 
distance to the athletic field. Realizing the great need of the game here, 
the athletic committee of the Athletic Association took steps to revive the 
sport and President Stehman appointed George M. Richter '09 as manager- 
As yet very little has been accomplished. An effort is being made to build 
some good courts on the campus, along White Oak St. A tournament was 
arranged with Franklin and Marshall for May 20, and during com- 
mencement week an inter-class tournament was held for the College 
Championship. It is the hope of the manager to have the courts in good 
condition for a fall tournament. 



Track 

One of the most important branches of college athletics, namely track, 
has been sadly overlooked at Lebanon Valley College, due largely to the fact 
that we never had a track. The opportunities for the students to enter 
athletics is limited within entirely too narrow bounds in an institution where 
only football, baseball and basketball prevail. Many students who can 
not win places on any of the above nameo" teams are barred from athletics 
entirely, because the branch in which they excell is not practiced here. 
This is manifestly unfair to the student body. Taking cognizance of these 
facts, the Athletic Association appointed J. Lester Appenzellar, '08, track 
manager. A temporary track has been measured off and while Lebanon 
Valley will not be represented in any inter-collegiate meets this year, it bids 
fair to develop a strong team from the excellent material at hand, in prepa- 
ration for next year when we hope to see her participate in some inter- 
collegiate meets. 



Peculiar 

Its peculiar how a fellow often tries to write in rhyme, 
And tries with might and main to keep the rhythm and the time, 
These poor imitation poets you can find in every clime, 
Peculiar, isn't it, now ? 

A fellow often likes to think he's of a different kind 
From everybody else, or has a very brilliant mind, 
While to his faults and imitations a fellow's always blind ; 
Peculiar, isn't it, now? 

He thinks he's a composer and great songs some day he'll write, 
Or maybe he's a poet writing verse and jingles bright, 
Perhaps thinks himself an actor, on the stage a shining light, 
Peculiar, isn't it, now? 

And all the time he's just a common, ordinary lad 
Without a single idea that every one's not had; 
But if you'd ever hint at this he'd laugh and call you cad, 
Peculiar, isn't it, now ? 

In closing this small ditty this. prediction I'll surmise, 
Each one who reads this poem think how truly it applies 
To someone else, nor thinks that fault in him as truly lies. 
Peculiar, isn't it, now ? 



The Science of Boding 

Boxing is an art about which very little is understood around this joint 
which is very natural when we consider that this is an institution of learn- 
ing. For the benefit of the ignorant I will try to explain a few of the most 
simple points of boxing. Persons interested in this subject will find the 
definition of boxing in Webster's dictionary, page 532 or in the World's 
Encyclopedia, page 4000. For practical demontration all are invited to 
call at Room 23. Mens' Dormitory ; ladies, however, must be accompanied 
by a chaperon 

Boxing can be divided into several classes, namely, ear-boxing, pugilism, 
sparring and boxing chickens. There is also something very closely allied 
to boxing which is called by the members of the Death League "the oil of 
gladness." However this is too painful for me to dwell upon here. Any- 
one who wishes this phase of boxing more fully defined can get full inform- 
ation by applying to the Death League. 

A knowlege of this art of defence is very useful, especially for the men 
during leap year when they have so much to defend themselves against. 
But boxing is also very dangerous sometimes because when someone thinks 
he can box and tries it with someone who can box he generally gets it in 
the neck, or rather, in the jaw. I do not wish my pupils to attempt any- 
thing as yet. Most boxers use a punching bag to practice on but I would 
advise the greenies to use a pillow so that there would be less chance of 
being hit back. Also I wish to warn you against using your sisters and 
little brothers for punching bags, as they may not appreciate it. The little 
brothers generally tell the '' old man " and the sisters pull your hair and 
scratch your face, which, while it makes things interesting, is not at all 
pleasant. However, other peoples' little boys are safe, except when they 
hav^ big brothers. 

There is a woeful lack of sporting spirit around this institution. In a 
hand to hand encounter with the odds in your opponent's favor, it is best to 
strike first and run for as Joseph Jefferson says, " He who strikes and runs 
away will live to strike another day." Just as a great poet once said — but 
I forgot the poet's name and what he said, but anyhow it was a fine thing. 

The are many terms about boxing which many people do not under- 
stand, such as "handing out five." The five does not have reference to 



dollars but to five fingers which are handed out in a lump. But this you 
will appreciate better by experiencing it than by having it told you. There 
are also the right and left "uppercuts," which are very hard to explain. 
But suffice it to say that upon receiving them the victim generally grunts 
and sits down. He then realizes what Prof. Spangler said in chapel one 
day. " Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof." There is also the 
"knockout" blow. Now Prof. Roeder says "there is no rest for the wicked," 
but the person who receives this, whether he be good or whether he be evil, 
will be sure to rest for sometime. For full information buy my little book 
called " Ever-hopeful Home Study Boxing Course."

A PARODY 



Ich weiss nicht wass soil es bedeuten, 

Das ich so hungrig bin. 
Die lunch room prices sind hocher, 

Und ich muss werden din. 
O ich hab so viel hunger 

Die sie qualt mich sehr, 
Ich hab nur gegessen some wasser, 

Und das ist schlechte fare. 



A Freshman Tragedy 

Being a pathetic tale of a II T estern Co-ed school. 

There came to school one September day 

A Freshman green as uncut hay. 

His hair was long, his face was wild, 
His type of beauty must go unstyled. 

And would you believe it ! He thought himself gay ! 

October brought its scrub glee club trials ; 

The " Fresh " proved the best by miles and miles, 

And so into lead he was promptly put. 

He tested a voice by its owner's foot, 
And thus sorted the crowd amid happy smiles. 

November appeared with its chill bleak wind: 
The scrub glee club leader made up his mind 

When a love-letter came full of honeyed word, 
Making him sing like a happy bird, 
"The sweet lass who wrote this I'll mighty soon find.' 

So he hied himself at the close of day 

To the Ladies' Hall not far away. 

He entered the hall with mighty step, 
As if he had pacticed by hep! hep! hep! 

And sent up his card with much display. 

The young lady came down in trembling haste, 
The scrub glee club leader his words did not waste: 

"My dear young lady, most charming belle, 

"My burning love to you I'll tell 
"And implore a kiss from your lips so chaste." 

They're happy now and live quite swell ; 

But is it not strange the fate that befell 
A fine young man at a co-ed school 
And the girl who made of him a fool ? 

But it has ended happily, and we wish them well.

Leap Year Song 

Look this way dear ladies, 
Take your choice to-night 
Of all these lads before yon, 
Bashful, full of fright. 
Some are long and lanky, 
Others short and fat ; 
Some are old and cranky, 
Few will fight or spat. 
Most have indigestion, 
Come from life alone ; 
It would make you weep aloud 
Just to hear them groan. 
Here there is no money, 
Rheumatiz to spare ; 
And all are kind and gentle, 
Just like a Teddy Bear. 

Chorus. 
For Leap year once again has come, 
The hint we give is clear. 
We love you each and each beseech 
Save us from bachelor fear. 
Just look at this fine crowd of lads, 
Come try your choice to take ; 
Come in to win — one fat or thin, 
And prove leap year's no fake. 

Complexions Cosmetique, 

Hair of drug store hue ; 

'Twont make any difference, 

Any girl will do. 

Just so she can cook well — 

Knows just how to sew; 

Can smile once in a while, 

Has no other beau. 

We hate to sweep our own rooms, 

We hate to darn our socks ; 

Being only single, 

We get a pile of knocks. 

No more bachelor waiting, 

Each will find a wife; 

Settle down on poor old dad, 

Happy now for life. 

Arranged for Glee Club. 



The Proposal 

My dear darling, I write this letter 
That your future may be better, 
By giving me your heart and hand 
And joining me in wedlock land. 

I've chosen you from all the rest, 
And merely make this one request: 
For you alone I do admire, 
And to be Mrs. is my desire. 

I am willing to consent 

To anything you may wish, 

I'll make the fire, darn your socks, 

Polish your shoes and make my frocks. 

In other words I'll make a wife 

Such as you seldom find through life, 

For I am blessed with a skill and nature rare, 

Of beauty I have a little share. 

Now, dearest, should you my offer decline, 
Then I'll impose a leap year fine, 
Which entitles me to a handsome dress 
Made of silk — I'll wear nothing less, 

So now you must choose either way 
And send me back without delay 
You answer, say yes or nay. 

Yours Lovingly, 

Miss 

Conservatory of Music, 
Room 5. 




LEAP YEAR GIRL 



The Reply 

An Owl sat high on a sycamore tree 
On a night in the dark of the moon, 

And sang of love in a shrill, high key 
To her sweetheart, a fat young coon. 

"I love thee well, O brave young love, 

O marry me now, I say; 
We'll live in your snug nest right above, 

O marry me, please, I pray." 

Mr. Coon replied in tones of delight 
"O truly, Owl, do you really love me ? 

Then call again on to-morrow night 
And see what your future will be." 

The owl flew away to her lonely nest, 
Mr. Coon smoothed his silky curls 

And thought: I want to do for me what's best, 
But Owls are deceivers like girls. 

A doctoress Owl gets not much pay, 
A preacheress Owl gets much less ; 

A musicianess Owl has all outlay, 
So they're all alike, I guess. 

A chump was I, (now I have confessed) 

But I know much better now ; 
Owls are schemers like all the rest, 

BachUor for mine, if fates allow. 



Leap Year Poem 



There is a leap year custom that perhaps you recollect, 

But I'll mention it in passing, just the same, 
That permits each rosy maid to send a due bill marked "collect" 

To each fellow whom she wished would change her name. 

This peculiar ancient custom, starting back in olden times 
So the ancient bards and minstrels used to sing, 

Would permit the dusky maiden living off in southern climes, 
To offer hand and heart to prince or king. 

III. 

For not even Lord or Ruler, so it often has been said, 

Would dare to scorn the lowest peasant maid ; 
But to each and every maiden, if he did not care to wed, 

To her five hundred pounds must needs be paid. 

And this peculiar custom has descended down to us, 

And who to mock a custom shall incline, 
That permits the dried up spinster to secure a husband, plus 

"A fairy in your home" in course of time. 

But alas — -the poor old bach, who dwells in single blessedness, 

This custom brings on many a line of care 
Across "his aging temples, many a night of restlessness, 

Is the cause of many a bald head losing hair. 



For when leap year comes the maidens never sit and weep and pine, 
They have got enough of gumption, pluck and nerve. 

To be sure there's something doing in the matrimonial line, 
Never from that noble purpose do they swerve. 

VII. 

So beware ye grumpy bachelors; you had best make up your mind 

If you want to live your foolish single life, 
You had best get out your check books, for on tho't your sure to find, 

Its celibacy and money 'gainst a wife. 




BAG RUSH

Ladies 9 Day 



i. 

O, I am a college sport, sir, and I tell you on the level, 

That I spend my money on the girls, and sport to beat the — band ; 

My father thinks I've got a set of brains like Socrates, 

But I don't give a rap for that, I do just as I please. 

O, our college is a co-ed school with ladies tall and slim, 

With a disposition, form and face to suit my every whim. 

I tell you, you'd be jealous, sir, if you my rep. would know ; 

The girls all say that I'm O. K. — you see I've got the dough. 

CHORUS. 
So ev'ry day is ladies day for me, I'm quite at their disposal all the while : 
But my pleasure it is double if they come to me in trouble, 
For I always find a way to make them smile, the little darlings. 
I've no doubt I should have married long ago, 
'Tis the proper thing to do, you'll all agree, 
But I never could find any fun in wasting all my time on one, 
So every day is ladies' day for me. 

II. 
But of course my life has drawbacks, too; what life is there has not, 
For the profs, are always on my trail, and on it good and hot. 
The faculty oft' calls on me, my heart with terror chills, 
Howe'er they've never fired me yet — I always pay my bills, 
So I regularly spend my time up in a practice room, 
And when the door is shut and locked we spoon and spoon and spoon. 
I never wear my welcome out, no matter how I stay, 
The reason is I always choose a new girl every day.

Alma Mater 

TUNE : " CHAPEL STEPS." 

Lebanon Valley stands to us 

In days of early youth 
A faithful guide in learnings path — 

A beacon light of truth. 
As a faithful mother she points the way 

And leads each trusting soul 
To paths of honor, strength and love, 

Which end in duty's goal. 

Bright memories will e'er remain 

Of happy college days, 
Of dearest college friends and chums, 

Of youthful hopes and fears. 
The years will come, the years will go, 

We oft will wander far ; 
Our thoughts will e'er turn baqk to her 

As to our guiding star. 

Here's to our Alma Mater boys, 

Home of our student days ; 
Here's to the place we .love so well, 

A song to her of praise. 
Here's hoping her way be ever bright, 

Her children ever true ; 
Her teachings be ever just and right, 

Hurrah for the white and blue.

Junior ^Senior Rules 

The senior and junior classes jointly organize for the purpose of govern-

No posters of any sort whatever nor any numerals shall be placed on 
any college building. 

Except at class games, freshmen may not wear or exhibit their class 
colors or numerals until the end of the first semester, unless they win the 
bag rush, in which case they may wear them immediately afte r they shall 



have been acknowledged the victors. 

The freshman and sophomore classes shall have at least five annual 
interclass events, three of which shall be in football, basketball and baseball. 
The fourth shall displace the color scrap and shall be known as the bag 
rush, and the fifth shall be a field meet, rules and requirements for both of

Baseball Notes 



Flook and Jacoby each caught a foul the night before Vic. Weidler's 
birthday dinner. 

Prof. Roeder caught a fly in the breakfast food. 

Lester Spessard and Vic Weidler were called out for interference 
with practice. 

At a party given at the Ladies' Hall on Saturday night there were not 
enough men to fill all the positions, even counting the substitutes. 

If Harry Andrews would stand up to the rubber plate as he does to the 
china plate, he would be promising material for the team. 

Charlie Plummer was struck out by his brother Wilbur. 

If some of the fellows who make home runs every week would come 
out for the team, we would have some heavy hitters.

Oh, we are a group of jolly profs ; 

Our charges we push before.

Recommends a dozen kids or more. 

Our hearts are light 

And our hands are steady, 

And you may bet 
We're all for Teddy. 



Song of 
The Race Suicide Club 

Our group is the wonder of the age — 
Each one an authority, professor or 
sage. 
Kids we have none, 

And the opposite sex we implore 
Get out of our way, 

We've no time for Theodore.

PRESERVED BECAUSE OF ITS RARITY 



A Picture of Sunday Night Sociability at a 
Co-educational Institution. * 

On Sunday evenings, some of our young gentlemen call upon 
the young ladies at the Ladies' Hall, and, following all the rules of 
college etiquette woo them graciously 'neath the spreading palms 
while the lights burn low. The number of these young men is 
small but select — Oh ! how select ! — the nicest and most handsome 
young men of the institution. Their vocations are varied. Several are 
preachers in embryo. Others would come under the general category 
of professional crooks, sports, race-track gamblers and "face flushers." 
A sorry lot ! Yet, spick and span, they go regularly to call at the 
Ladies' Hall each Sunday eve and woo the gentle sex, who reign 
supreme — or think they do — at L. V. C. Out of respect for your 
feelings I shall not tell you who these flowers of Lebanon Valley 
chivalry are. 

The Freshmen of this bunch are not allowed to spoon in the 
parlor like gentlemen, but are sent to the kitchen by the Seniors. 
They are contented, however, for the kitchen range is as secluding 
as the piano or the palms in the parlor. Up in the parlor two 
fellows, old at the game, never get into the some room. One is 
sure to take the north and the other the south parlor. Then they 
get to fighting over the light. By mutual agreement the lights in 
both parlors must be turned off, excepting one light in one of the 



* In order that our readers ma}' not get the idea that our college 
days are all grind we have had a careful student of the sociology of 
the institution write his observations on the social joys of L. V. C. 

Editor's Note. 



parlors ; but ordinarily not being able to agree in which parlor this 
lone light shall burn, they settle the difficulty by turning off all 
the lights. The " tall boy " generally does this duty. Then come 
gentle remonstrances about being afraid in the dark, but their 
natural protectors allay their fears, and all is bliss. 

Gossip has it that one evening a Senior met a "bud" fleeing 
from the kitchen, who, to his mild look of inquiry — being a Senior, 
he had passed through the violet stage of spoonology — exclaimed. 
" Oh, he tried to kiss me, the ugly boy ! " 

" Holy smokes ! " ejaculated the Senior, " What have you been 
doing down there, if this is the first time he kissed you ? " 

"Oh, just getting ready," she answered, and, smiling contentedly, 
skipped down stairs again to the region of pots and pans. 

At eleven sharp, our motherly preceptress appears at the top of 
the stairs in a ghostly garb and calls to her young charges below in 
sweetest musical tones, subdued but perfectly audible in the extreme 
corners of the parlors and the secluded retreats of the kitchen, 
"Girls! Girls!! (No answer.) Girls!! Girls!!!! The deuce!! What 
are you girls doing down there ? Girls ! Girls ! ! I say, its time to 
say good night. You may do that on the porch. Don't let it take 
you longer than twelve. From various points they answer, " Yes, 
ma'am. Good night ! (Miss Engle exit.) No one has been able to learn 
definitely what takes place on the porch from n to 12. "Oh! fair 
porch ! How manifold are thy blessings ! Thou art fair and dark 
indeed ! How much thou hidest from view !'' Shakespeare. 

Perhaps we might never have known the mysteries of the porch 
had not some mean, some malign, some malicious young fellow, who 

was robbing the kitchen and saw (?) told us confidentially what 

—151— 



he saw fiom 11.50 to 12 one Sunday night. Let the suggestion suffice. 

The ministers of the institution call somewhere in -Bellegrove, at 
least two of them, so 'tis said. But the manly young men— the strong 
and brave, the flower of L. V. C. — they go to Lebanon each Sunday 
eve. Their number is great. Even the Forum editor and the Y. M. C. 
A. president have now joined their ranks. When asked regarding their 
reception they grow enthusiastic over the fair Ladies of Lebanon 
and say to those in doubt that one visit will surely convince. 

The only thing to be deplored is that some of the fellows miss 
the last car home, and either walk home in the early hours of 
Monday morning or come straggling into their classes some time 
during the forenoon. 

Verily, all the brave, who alone deserve the fair, wend their 
way to Lebanon each Sunday eve. So there ! Thus endeth the 
reading of the lesson. Be wise !

Final Word 

We have aimed in compiling this Bizarre to touch every point in the 
cycle of our college life. We think our book is a true index of the char- 
acter of Lebanon Valley College. If we have a joke on anyone of you, 
believe us it is perfectly good-natured ; if we don't have one on you it is 
because you did not tell us one on yourself. 

To all those who contributed in any way to the contents of our Bizarre 
we are thankful. We are especially grateful to our patrons and advertisers, 
who have made the publication of this book possible, and to our publishers 
for their excellent service and their patience with our inexperienced editor- 
ship.
