The Gravel Hill 

Come out with me to the Gravel Hill 

When the gay new blossom blows, 
And see how the beauty of God doth fill 

The heart of each thing that grows. 
The bluebird flits to his wooing mate 

Atilt on the dogwood bough, 
And the farmer joys at the garden gate 

For the nurturing wind on his brow. 

There's a prayerful note in the song I hear 

Of the robin again come back, 
And life and love begin to appear 

In the smallest insect's track. 
And the shooting blade at the boulder's side 

Proclaims with its mystic might, 
A blessedness moving far and wide 

Under the sod in the night. 

Oh, a peace for all in the town below 

Abides in this hill-top green, 
And all who seek for it well may know 

'T is the peace of God I ween. 
Then up to the hill, O weary of earth. 

And up to the hill, O sad, 
And learn from the God of all infinite worth 

The secrets that make life glad. 

Norman C. Schlichler, '97. 















Professor John Smith Shippee 

ROFESSOR JOHN S. SHIPPEE, the oldest of six children, was born in 
East Greenwich, Rhode Island, January 9, 1871. Both his father and mother 
are decendants of families settled in Rhode Island since the early days of 
the colony. The pioneer of the family, David Shippee, who was married 
in the colony in 1664, came from Maidfield, England. Professor Shippee is the 
eighth in direct descent from him. An ancestor of his mother, a certain Major 
Adams, fought in the Revolutionary War. Thus Professor Shippee has in his veins 
the blood of generations of the hardy men and women of New England. 

His father, by his daily life, set before him an example of kindness, patience, 
justice, and untiring energy. Men of his frank and unselfish character are rare. 
From his mother he never failed to receive sympathy and inspiration; and her 
earnest desire for his success in life has always been a powerful incentive to him to 
do his best. No man was ever blessed with a better or more generous father and 

Professor Shippee's early education was received in the town in which he was 
born. When'he was fifteen years old, he began the college preparatory course in 
the East Greenwich Academy, a co-educational school, of the typical New England 
sort, founded in 1802. From his early days he had shown a great fondness for books 
and reading, implanted and fostered by his mother. During his years at the academy, 
he read widely in English literature, giving his mind breadth in addition to the 
accuracy derived from careful training in Latin and Greek. 

In 1890 he entered Brown University as a freshman. E. Benjamin Andrews had 
become president of the college the year before and under his broad-minded and 
vigorous administration it took on new life, and in a short time grew to almost 
twice its former size. Professor Shippee devoted himself especially to literature 
and languages. Two of his teachers are known throughout the United States from 
their text-books, Albert Harkness and Charles E. Bennett. In his fourth year Pro- 
fessor Shippee was elected to membership in the Phi Beta Kappa fraternitj"; this 
society is composed of honor men, men who have had the highest standing through- 
out their course and membership in it is highly prized by students. He also won a 
Latin prize in his fourth year. 

Upon receiving his degree, ill 1894, he was made assistant in English in Brown 
University for the following year. At the end of this year he was appointed In- 
structor in Latin in the same college, a position which he held until 1902. His 
associations with his students in Brown were always very pleasant. It was especi- 
ally during these years that his formative training in the teaching profession was 
received. His class work did not, however, take all his time, but permitted him to 
do much advanced study. 

In 1902 he became instructor of Latin and Greek in the Ohio Military Institute, 
Cincinnati. His work there was difficult and exhausting owing to disorganization 
and lack of dicipline in the school. While many of the cadets living in the school 
were idle and lawless, those whose homes were in College Hill, where the school 
was situated, were studious, sincere and courteous. 

In 1906 came his appointment as Professor of Latin and French in Lebanon 
Valley College. Professor Shippee found the college situated in a small, straggling 
town lying in an extremely beautiful valley. On all sides stretch rich, green, roll- 
ing fields; in the distance, north and south, lie mountains hemming the valley in. 
The fair surroundings add not a little charm to the busy intellectual life of the 
students and faculty. 

The summer of 1908 was spent in travel and study. Landing in Glasgow, Pro- 
fessor Shippee vir.ited the beautiful lakes in Scotland, stayed a short time in Stirl- 
ing and Edinburg, and then went to London, visiting Abbotsford and several cathe- 
dral towns on his way. After a short stay in Paris, he went to Grenoble, a pleasant 
city in the midst of the beautiful French Alps. He took a course of advanced study 
in the old university in Grenoble, and from time to time he visited places of historic 
and literary interest. 

His work in Lebanon Valley has proved successful and interesting; that this is 
so, is mainly due to the students who have taken his courses and who, by their 
zealous interest and hard work, have made the subjects yield good fruit. It has 
always been a pleasure to him to meet them and to work with the*n — all — freshmen, 
sophomores, juniors and seniors. As time has passed by and he has learned to know 
them, they have shown him how faithful and loyal they can be. Teaching them is 
not a task but a pleasure. This has been especially true of the class of 1910. 


S FROM the extravagant youthful castles of Spain emanate 
the more expedient ideals of a later development — in us, that 
of college life and idealism, — so in childhood we presumpt- 

uously believed our capabilties equal to the most arduous tasks; in this, 
our junior year, we sincerely confess to our ignorance and inefficiency. 
Our avowed purpose in publishing this volume is to please. Kind 
reader, we offer you the humble results of of our best efforts after days 
and weeks of incessant and unremitting toil. 

May we hope that in the after years this book will serve as a re- 
membrance of the flush and buoyancy of youth, of ideals realized, of 
the hopes and fears of life in the eternal springtime — if it but please, 
we shall be abundantly repaid.

To the Class of Nineteen-Nine 

Happy seniors, what delight 
You must feel in graduation. 

Each to be a shining light 
In the coming generation. 

Just four years ago you came, 

Filled with verdance and ambition. 

Strove you hard to win a name 
And be crowned with erudition. 

You've succeeded? But in part; 

Now the fuller life's begun. 
Still, you've learned the noble art 

Of living. Thus the heights are won. 

Undergrad-dom's o'er, and knowing 
That henceforth your paths must lie 

Far from L,. V. C. diverging 

With hearty clasp we say — "Goodbye.

Senior Boasts 

GAIN the class of 1909 is asked to tell to the world the great achievements 

which it has accomblished during its four years journey through Lebanon 

Valley College. With a feeling of pride we draw back the curtain to let 

others see what we have been, what we are, and what we hope to be. 

In gazing upon our Freshman year, we would kindly ask you to hasten, lose no 

time here, but quickly glance at the numerals on the smokestack, and then pass on. 

The rest that you would see would be trembling Freshmen, with slates under their 

arms, going to recite their lessons to the awe-inspiring professors. 

Now you may look upon us again for we have shed our swaddling clothes and 
have put on the garments of the "Wise Sophs." The class of 190S neglected to dis- 
infect them before they let them fall upon us, so we, unfortunately, had a slight at- 
tack of the disease, commonly called. "Swelled Heads," from which they were just 
recovering. It was very slight, however, and we overcame it so as to win the Fresh- 
man vs. Sophomore debate. 

We also enjoyed in our Sophomore year a delicious banquet and splendid time 
at Wernersville. 

When all the professors agreed that our heads had diminished and that we could 
again wear hats of normal size, we were permitted to affix to our names "Jr." 

We thought that now since our heads had lessened, surely our work would 
diminish in the same proportion and we could laugh and play all day long from 
early morn until 10 o'clock P. M. This was a great mistake for we were just begin- 
ning to learn what "work" meant. We only commenced in this year to delve into 
the depths of the studies we had had a taste of in the previous year, such as Mathe- 
matics, Chemistry, Astronomy, Biology, Philosophy — we could keep on enumerating 
but we have mentioned enough to show you that our dreams -were shattered. 
"And where were the jolly Juniors, they sing about in rhyme? 
There was'nt a jolly Junior to be found for a long time. 
For they made us work and study 'till our faces thinner grew 
And all our ruddy color had changed to a paler hue. 
But one fine day a doctor, with face and thought so wise, 
Said if we weren't let up on we'd all mount to the skies, 
And then they lessened our hardships and gave us a chance to play, 
And we grew ruddy, healthy and happy, jolly and plump and gay." 
Now we are drawing near to the close of our great career and the faculty ap- 
provingly pat us on the back, and say, "good!" Under-class men stare in open- 
mouthed admiration and whisper in awed tones, "Will we grow up to be like that?" 
and old fogies shake their white locks and say, "It might have been." I cannot 
vouch for the truth of the last statement, however, for that one is just hear-say. 

We have passed the time when our class-rooms are "perfect dens of tortures;" 
professors "hard-hearted tyrants;" and books, "the pest of our lives," and have at- 
tained to our present enlightened condition when the college is our "dear old Alma 
Mater;" professors, "our patient benefactors;" and books — Well! Books are some- 
times used as "Wurf-waffen." 

We give a last glance of fare-well to the class rooms, the chapel, and the halls 
through which our footsteps used to resound. Perhaps a lump will rise in our 
throats when we come back again and see our places taken by others and realize, 
that we no longer have a share where once we held undisputed sway.

1909 Class Poem 

Through L. Vs. halls we've come and gone 

With shouts of glee and merry song, 

And in four years of college work 

Our duties we've ne'er tried to shirk. 

As Freshmen were always true 

And learned our lessons to pursue, 

But frequently we heard a rap 

'Twas the awful Death League tap! tap! tap! 

Submission was the only way 

That we might later hold full sway. 

'Twas realized in Soph 'more year 

When Freshmen shrank with dreadful fear, 

While we applied with wondrous snap 

The same old tap of the Death League rap. 

In class meets we were ever fair, 

And our defeats in truth were rare. 

With dauutless will and courage too 

Our Junior work did we pursue. 

Success we surely did attain, 

For did the stage not bring us fame? 

In like manner our annual 

Has been an unequaled model. 

By toil and strife and not all ease, 

We claim our share of victories. 

Though jubilant because of these 

We'd not forget our romances. 

Two times we see, a lass and swain 

Fall victims of love's arduous claim. 

Now as we near commencement day 

With one accord we all say aye, 

That our success we view with pride 

And hope honors with us abide. 

As now we come to bid adieu 

To those dear halls we love so true, 

'Though sad, yet hopeful we will go 

Into real life our worth to show. 

When hard the task and zeal runs low 

We'll ne'er forget our brave motto, 

Our view on this, our race we'll run 

Semper Cupidi ad Summum .

Grover Cleveland Bair, Belleville, Pa. 

"Teddy Bear" as he is called came to col- 
lege animated with visions of future re- 
nown which he formulated in his moments 
of reverie while teaching in a little country 
school house snugly situated in the moun- 
tains of Mifflin county. He was born at 
Lewistown but in early life moved to Belle- 
ville where he received his public school 
education. At college he first impressed 
the fact of his presence by remorselessly 
holding a soph fast against the sod during 
the color rush. Spurred on by this success- 
ful show of valor he tried to become a foot 
ball star but proved to be only a partial suc- 
cess. Teddy is an assiduous student. He 
has many progressive ideas and always lends 
a ready voice to aid any proposed improve- 
ments. To his credit it must be said that 
in mingling with the fair sex he has had 
only one "affaire de coeur" which however 
was always more of a reality than an evi- 

Mervin R. Fleming, York, Pa. 

Mervin, born 1886, spent a few years of 
his early life in Newchester, then went to 
York, his present home. He is the busiest 
man in the class, so absorbed does he be- 
come in his work he scarcely finds time to 
eat his meals. Besides his regular school 
work he prepares two or three sermons for 
the various congregations over which he 
presides. Mervin has the coveted power of 
concentration and can prepare his recita- 
tions in half the time it takes most fellows. 
He is a man of profound intellectual powers, 
a clean thinker and a forceful speaker, and 
is well qualified for the profession he has 
chosen. He will not be satisfied until he 
has takan a seminary course in some promi- 
nent theological school. Mervin's interests 
in real estate is not wholly incidental, for it 
has been reported that he is looking for a 
beautiful spot in which to begin his future 
career of wedded happiness. 

Edith Nissley Freed, Hershey, Pa. 

Miss Freed enjoys the distinction of be- 
ing the prettiest girl in our class. She attri- 
butes her beauty to the qualities of Her- 
shey 's chocolates, for she is a resident of 
Hershey. Dith was born 1888, is a graduate 
from Lebanon High School. Of the many 
fields of activity in which she is interested, 
there is none she enjoys better than the 
fields of clover, for she shows a marked pro- 
pensity for walking. This trait is so strongly 
developed that in her sophomore year she 
was induced to stroll leisurely beyond the 
campus with a freshie, in spite of all the 
college rules. Dith has always been inter- 
ested in class matters, has held numerous 
offices, and was manager of our Freshman A 'it 
Foot Ball team. While Miss Freed claims 

to be preparing for the pedagogical profes- 
sion, we all believe that after graduating 
she will just continue walking — in a more 
extended field. We wish them well. 


E. Myrtle Garrett, Hummelstown, Pa. 

Miss Myrtle Garrett comes to us from 
Hummelstown, where she has always lived, 
in preference to any other place on earth. 
In fact it is the place. But after graduating 
from the High School she decided to try 
and satisfy her ambition by taking a course 
at L. V. C. and we are glad to say she is 
fast approaching her goal, for Myrtle is a 
good student, and always knows her lessons. 
However she is not a "book-worm" but en- 
joys a good time and a good laugh or 
"giggle." Her greatest fault is "jollying," 
a sport which she even tries with the Profs 
sometimes. But with all this Myrtle is 
quite serious at times and we should not be 
surprised to hear soon after she leaves 
school that she has become the helpmate of 
a certain Methodist ecclesiastic, for she 
dearly loves parish work. Myrtle was born 


Wilbur E. Harnish, Mechanicsburg, Pa. 

"Abner" inherited his father's name 
willy-nilly as both of his christian dub- 
bings are ill adapted to his nature. He 
was born 18S6 and reared in Mechanicsburg, 
where he has always lived and which place 
he says with an insinuating smile is a part 
of God's country. He is an indispensable 
member of his class; with parliamentary 
rules at his tongue's end he knows exactly 
when to lise to a point of order. It is 
Abner's great love for a heated logomachy 
which has won for him first rank among 
our college debaters. He hopes at some day 
to be one of the foremost barristers of the 
country. Besides this ambition one of his 
fond expectations is to attend a big wedding 
at Lebanon where he will not be an invited 
guest, but after which as he says he •will 
have "did" his duty to the state. 

John Edward Jacoby, York, Pa. 

"Jack" as this young man is commonly 
known was born and reared in York, which 
he claims accounts for his epicurean tastes 
and his keen appreciation of gocd cigars. 
One of his greatest delights is a peaceful 
smoke after a good "stomach stretching." 
His one room is equipped with a full line of 
kitchen utensils, bed, and library all ar- 
ranged with the especial purpose of having 
things handy. He is passionately fond of 
good literature and from the first has won 
the admiration of the faculty by his erudite 
personality. His marked ability as a writer 
fitted him well for the editorship of this 
book. Jack is very opinionative and main- 
tains his opinions with convincing earnest- 
ess. He claims that laboratory work is a 
waste of time, and while he is very fond of 
the fair sex, he strives to disbelieve it and 
looks to the bachelor man of letters as his 
ideal. He expects to win his doctor's de- 
gree at Harvard. 

Fillmore Thurman Kohler Yoe, Pa. 

Fillmore better known as "Peepie," hails 
from the beautiful town of Yoe, where he 
was born 1887 and where he learned cigar 
making, as well as the chicken raising busi- 
ness. When he had mastered the above 
profession he began his preparation for the 
ministry. After graduating with honors 
from the Yoe high school, he took a di- 
ploma from the York Collegiate Institute, 
from which place he entered the sophomore 
class at Lebanon Valley College. His spare 
time is spent in studying biology and elocu- 
tion. He was the founder of the Dormitory 
Fire Department, and gave the fellows the 
privilege of throwing water on him so that 
they would have practice should a fire ever 
occur. He is small in stature, and modest 
in look; but large in heart, and mischievous 
in conduct. The Hebrew type is his ideal in 
the business world, and for this reason it is 
that he is so successful in the art of 'honsw- 

Mary Blanche Musser Mountville, Pa. 

Mary was born 1887 in Mountville, a sub- 
urb of Lancaster and the garden spot of the 
eaith, so Mary says. She graduated at Co- 
lumbia High School class of '06. Having 
always had a desire to go to college and 
then become somebody great, she thought 
to put up her tent at Lebanon Valley. Mary 
distinguished herself when she came here 
by becoming a member of the "knocker's 
club" and she has filled several prominent 
offices in that club during the past three 
years. In addition to this she has received 
the titles of "Prof" and "Cop," which are 
considered a rare treat around here. So you 
see this young person is on a fair way to- 
ward the House of Fame. Although a lit- 
erary student, Mary also has a talent for 
music, and we hope to hear "some day" 
that she is the world's great prima donna. 
If she fails in this she will become a lect- 
urer on Woman's Rights." 

Charles William Plummer Hagerstown, Md. 
On the nth of Aug. 1887 a thunder storm 
passed over Hagerstown, Md. After the 
noise of the storm had abated, a shrill cry 
was heard. This was the first notice this 
world had of the arrival of Charles W. Plum- 
mer. Even since that time he has had a 
peculiar way of informing people that he is 
existing. He has a decidedly determined 
southern dialect, each sentence of which 
begins with "Sam Hill!" 

Charles says he will enter the ministry if 
the people will not laugh too loud when he 
tries to preach. His two hobbies will be 
preaching on eternal punishment and per- 
sonal work with the younger portion of his 
female parishoners. 

Charles is a strong advocate of college 
spirit, and spends much of his time trying 
to keep things moving around this "old 
joint." His favorite studies are French 
and mathematics, in which he is a brilliant 

Wilbur Clayton Plummer Hagerstown, Md. 
After a prolonged menial discussion as to 
which class claimed the greatest number of 
men he would thrash, this bright-eyed 
specimen of Maryland's manhood decided 
to join 1910 in the sophomore year, and has 
been thrashing and knocking ever since. 
Plummer was born 1S88, and is a graduate 
from Hagerstown High School. He has 
grown to be one of the most popular boys 
around college, and holds the position of 
fund-chaser for the athletic association, as 
also for the Y. M. C. A. Wilbur's initial 
step toward the proper appreciation of the 
co-eds was taken but a few months since, 
for which reason it is the intenser. His 
chief amusement is the dissection of felines, 
his favorite theme evolution, his highest am- 
bition to become a political boss. Discard- 
ing the sheepskin and mortarboard, Plum- 
will begin as a ward-heeler in his native 
town, and promoter of prize-fights. His 
keen observation and brilliant mentality in- 
sure his success in any profession he may 
decide to follow. 


Earle Emerald Renn Middletown, Pa. 

Earle's nativity dates back to 1888 in the 
town of Manheim. As his father is a min- 
ister and has held charges in numerous sec- 
tions of Pennsylvania and Ohio, Earle has 
been subject to the various influences, each 
playing its part in his intellectual and moral 
make-up. He would have all his question- 
able characteristics attributed to the influ- 
ences of Reading city life. Possibly the 
most marked element of his character is his 
independent disposition, is directly due to 
the fact that he was a student and graduate 
of Reading High School. Earle is never 
worried about anything. His philosophy 
is, "take life as it comes." 

He possesses exceptional oratorical ability 
and is famous in the realm of argumentation 
in which he occasionally indulges. After 
leaving L. V. he hopes to enter Yale where 
he will take a course in pill-making, and 
the proper care of the health, in order to 
alleviate the sufferings of mankind. 

Frank Allen Rutherford Royalton, Pa. 

F. Allen is familiarly spoken of as "Runt- 
ime," supposedly because of his bias in fa- 
vor of the town pump's product rather than 
the dining-hall milk. Allen is one of our 
athletes — in fact is a so-called all-round ath- 
lete. Unwittingly he is a disciple of Scho- 
penhauer, that is, at all times except after 
lost games, when he optimistically declares 
"it might have been." Allen was born 1S87, 
entering here from his labors as a country 
school taskmaster, which may account for 
his passion in wielding the baton. How- 
ever a "forced demonstration rude" of the 
properties of the "oil of gladness" some- 
what assisted the young men to settle down 
to work. Between laboratory and Lebanon 
' periods, when not otherwise occupied, Al- 
len studies. An honor graduate from Mid- 
dletown High School, he is a clever young 
man, and with the proper application will 
end up as a dispenser of soothing syrups. 

Lucy Snavely Seltzer, Lebarron, Pa. 

Lucy's eves tell the story. In sooth, her 
large sympathetic eyes and rosy cheeks 
have been the vanquishing of many an im- 
portunate jouth. To quote Lucy herself, she 
is "very loving, unselfish and martyr-like." 
Born 1S87, a graduate of Lebanon High 
School, and a resident of Lebanon, she is a 
staunch defender of the Pennsylvania Dutch. 
A constant source of inspiration are her lit- 
erary productions, for she is of a very intel- 
lectual cast, is Lucy, and we are very proud 
of her. In short, she is the delight of the 
Profs and a model student. Notwithstanding 
her unassuming ways, it is to be feared that 
she is at times very frolicsome, yes, and even 
mischievous, for Lucy is a child of fancy, 
and lives far above the everyday world of 
commercialism and routine. Although pro- 
vokingly immune of frivolity, she has lately 
shown signs of becoming a convert to cupid. 
This, however, she will not admit. 

Floyd Elmer Shaffer, Lebanon, Pa. 

Floyd better known as "Fat" is a purely 
western type. His early home was in 
Topeka Kansas where he was born 1889. 
He is, as he himself expressed it the "baby 
elephant" of the class, being the youngest 
of its members. By taking an active inter- 
est in athletics since his entrance at L. V. 
he has become an all around athlete. But 
in no phase of sports does he take greater 
delight than in foot ball. As captain of last 
year's team he played a great game. His 
re-election to that position for the season 
this fall shows the confidence the team 
placed in him. Besides his record as an 
athlete Fat is a bright student. An active 
member of the field club, he takes special 
interest in biological studies and expects to 
make that his future study. After gradua- 
tion he will take up a course in medicine in 
the University of Pennsylvania. 

James Clyde Strock, Mechanicsburg, Pa. 
"Oray" (not J. Clyde'ssister, but J. Clyde 
himself) is characterized in a single phrase 
by which he answers all questions asked 
him and that is "Lebanon for mine." 
"Omy" hails originally from Lemoyne 
which "Abner" says "isn't saying much" 
but what is saying more, he later moved to 
Mechanicsburg where Abner lives. Though 
"Omy" spends his vacation on the farm his 
aspirations do not tend in that direction. 
Everyone thinks that some day "Omy" will 
follow in the footsteps of our French Prof. 
These conclusions are drawn from the fact 
that he has a great propensity for every- 
thing French — French professors and the 
young ladies of Lebanon who affect a 
French style in particular. "Omy" is de- 
clared "just great" by all Lebanon girls. 
While it is evident that our subject is fond 
of the refining society of femininity, as a 
student he is free from any erratic habits. 
He was born 1887. 

Victor Otterbein Weidler, Royalton, Pa. 
Since the event of his birth in 1S87, "Vic" 
has lived in most of the small cities of 
Eastern Pennsylvania, to which fact he at- 
tributes his cosmopolitan view of things 
He is indebted for his prominent station in 
college to his youthful precociousness, and 
his elder brother's prescribed methods of 
successful living. As a student, he is decid- 
edly of the lexicographiclassical type. With 
the exception of athletics, Vic. is engaged 
in practically all the pursuits of the typical 
college man. A member of the Glee Club, 
while his matins ofttimes fail to soothe the 
late riser's troubled conscience, his love 
ditties are seldom ineffective with the fair 
sex, of which Vic is an avowed admirer, and 
in whose company he is continually "shin- 
ing." Vic is earnestly looking forward to 
great things, and we are confident that he 
will succeed, especially after he is comfort- 
ably settled in his parish, with an assistant 
to approve of his scriptural discourses. 


Jesse Thomas Yoder, Bellville, Pa. 

Jesse spent the greater part of his life in 
the vicinity of Belleville, Pa. After gradu- 
ating from the Bellville High School he 
came to L- V. C. The effects of his early 
life and training can be seen in his strong 
physique and clear brain. His movements 
are not of lightening rapidity, but he can 
always be relied upon to reach the goal, 
especially on the foot ball field, where his 
presence is always hailed with delight by 
his fellow students. Notwithstanding his 
late start, there are strong indications that 
he will reach the goal of matrimony before 
some of the more pretensious chaps. After 
graduating he expects to teach for a few 
years, and then go to Yale to prepare for 
special Y. M. C. A. work, for which he is 
well adapted, as well from experience as a 
delegate to vaiious conventions, as in char- 
acter and personalty.

Junior Facts 

71 UST AS the mighty oak has sprung from the little acorn, so the illustrious 
class of 1910 is winding its way from minuteness to magnitude. The four 
years of college life may he likened unto the four seasons of the year — 
Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer. 

In the fall of 1906 twenty-one blooming youths stepped upon the stage to partici- 
pate in the play entitled "College Life." Of these twenty-one performers, ten were 
prepared for the drama in the preparatory department of our college; the other 
eleven having been trained in various high schools and academies of notable 

When the curtain was raised and the players entered upon the stage for the first 
act all seemed bliss and happiness. Hereunto is the Freshmen year likened to the 
season Autumn. It opens with rapture mixed with various pleasures, and ends with 
woes and trials. So it is with the first act of the play. When the twenty-one actors 
were assigned their respective roles, all seemed to go well. But as the act neared 
the end, the players saw that to take a part in a drama of this type was not all 
pleasure. However all became accustomed to their tasks, and the finale drew nigh 
and ended with a grand success. 

Intermission passed quickly. 

The stage having been cleared and all in readiness for Act II. it was found that 
seven players had left the stage to take up their roles in a far different play. But 
the vacancies were quickly applied for by six new actors. These players had been 
prepared and coached for their respective duties in standard High Schools and 
Institutes. Through this all proved their capability of taking the parts assigned 

So the curtain raised and the drama proceeded with twenty participants. Now 
is the Sophomore year likened unto the season Winter. The times are rough and 
stormy. But having emerged from the previous year, all were aware that trials 
must be encountered. This second year is the one that awakes one to a new sense 
of responsibility. But, notwithstanding, the road was traveled with a bold front 
and a high spirit. The act ended with a great applause, adding much to the credit 
of the players. 

Intermission passed — but not so rapidly. 

After again clearing the stage and viewing all in readiness for Act III, two 
were again missing, one of them dropping out on account of ill health, and the 
other having gone to take up a greater role on a larger stage. But as no new 
players were on hand the rest just doubled up and increased their courage. 

Drawing the curtain the act proceeded with eighteen players, their respective 
roles being more burdensome to carry. So is the Junior year similar to the season 
Spring. This is the time set apart for all work. But having passed through the 
Winter with grandeur, the road did not seem so hard to travel. Work of all kinds 
must be carried through. But, considering all, the act is nearing the end with a 
seeming success. 

1910 Class Poem 

Our life has been a happy one 

Oh dear old L. V. C, 
Brimfull of tasks ond struggles won, 

And full of love for thee; 
For didst thou not prepare our way 

To high achievements gain? 
So willingly we strive each day 

For what we can attain. 

With proud and loyal hearts aglow 

We look upon the past; 

The present waits us to bestow 

A blessing that shall last. 
The future we must not forget 

Is waiting for us too, 
And know it has some good things )'et 

In store for us to do. 

Vain pleasures we have put to flight, 

United is our band, 
And always stand for truth and right 

In God's most fruitful land. 
So shall we ever stand, we pray, 

Whate'er our lot may be, 
As here we now prepare the way 

For great eternity. 

The Juniors now are in their prime, 

The stars of classic halls, 
Whose purpose always is to shine, 

And go where duty calls; 
To give to others of our best, 

By cheerful word or pen; 
And then the world may bring to test, 

The class of 1910.

Sophomore Wind 

NOTHER year has gone swiftly by, a year filled with a mingling of victories 
and defeats for the class of 191 1. 

A glance at the Bizarre of last year will show a record of the achieve- 
ments of our Freshman year. This year seems like a happy dream of long 
ago. For to our Freshman year belong some achievements that can not but give us 
the greatest satisfaction. It was during this year that the class of 191 1 claimed the 
honor of being the first Freshman class to win the Freshman-Sophomore debate at 
L. V. C. 

Having left behind as Shakespeare says, "Our salad days; when we were green 
in judgment," we entered upon our Sophomore duties. 

At the beginning of this year we grieved to note the absence of six of our mem- 
bers. We felt their loss keenly. But we gladly welcomed three others into our 
class. And with the same spirit and enthusiasm of the year before we entered and 
won the bag-rush with the Freshman, which they were so confident of winning. 
But oh, what a disappointment for them! And was there ever a class so broken in 
spirit as that class? You may hear little of this in the Freshman records, but you 
will read of the foot ball game which was our first defeat, but which was not to our 
discredit. And we are sure that if the Freshmen had not won this game, their defeat 
in the bag-rush having left such a bad effect on them, they would have never been 
able to survive the other battles of the year. 

Throughout the entire year as a class we have shown a spirit that is above reproach 
and have always shown ourselves to have a degree of unity and energy. We have 
shown our influence by the manner in which members of our class have taken part 
in all the activities of the college. And representing as we do a great variety of 
talent we are sure that by keeping our motto "Ad Astra per Aspera" ever before us 
we shall be a credit to ourselves and to Lebanon Valley. 

1911 Class Poem 

Our college dear, under whose will 

We passed a year with excellent skill, 

We meet again, united, free, 

And loyal to our class and thee, 

To thank thee for the year that's done, 

And trust thee in th' ensuing one. 

Here, in the past, with true design 

We strove to make that name of thine 

With echoes ring in loud refrain, 

Of honors which our class did gain; 

To raise the college to high fame 

Which through the white and scarlet came. 

We faced the past, the future greet, 
With courage bold, its tasks we meet, 
That helped us in our triumphs won 
Throughout the year now passed and gone. 
We wish to common good ordain 
Our powers of both hand and brain. 

For great achievements which we've won 
By toil, as men in noon-day sun, 
We give thee thanks; but ever crave 
For nobler aims, both strong and brave, 
For strength our motto to achieve 
And no unfinished task to leave. 

Oh, may the class, Nineteen Eleven, 
Do, as before, all work 'tis given! 
Oh, may the scarlet and the white, 
In its contests for truth and right, 
Reach every mark, and perfect be, 
And bring renown to L. V. C!

Freshman Prattle 

T IS impossidle for any one to tell in the most significant words the grand 
history of the "best Freshmen class" that ever entered Lebanon Valley 
College. Although the professors paid us this compliment, yet we did not 
feel as conceited as the "Sophs" would have under similiar circumstances. 
The "Sophs" thought us green and slow but soon we made them think differently 
as successive events proved. 

We organized as the classof 1912 in the library building. Not a "Soph" appeared 
and as usual they must have been asleep, or more likely afraid to show themselves. 

The first contest between the Freshmen and Sophomores was the bag rush. Al- 
though we lost this, nevertheless it was not to our discredit, for all the boys did 
their best and no one expected more. 

The next contest between our class and the Sophomores was a foot ball game. 
Here we carried away ro3'al honors by the score 10 — o. During the game we dis- 
played our colors, purple and gold, and as soon as the game was ended we marched 
in the Main Street with flying colors. The "Sophs" meanwhile, had crept home 
through side streets, weeping tears of bitter agony. We celebrated our glorious 
victory that same evening by a taffy pull in the kitchen of the Ladies' Dormitory. 

Our class has been well represented both in foot ball and basket ball and has done 
much to help gain honor for the "Blue and White". We also have had a few 
members in the Glee Club, which organization is well known and has achieved great 

Soon after our Christmas vacation we surprised the "Sophs" by having a 
banquet at the Metropolitan Hotel, Harrisburg. Every Freshmen escaped and the 
Sophs were such a sorry looking bunch that someone, ignorant of the state of af- 
fairs, might have thought that they had lost some dear friends instead of the wily 

We have had victories and defeats, but the former greatly outnumber the latter. 
Vet without the latter, we would not have been able to win the former, for defeat 
only made us strong and determined to conquer. Our motto "Ut Labor, ita 
praemium," is constantly before us, and He are ever striving to reach the goal, 
which we see dimly appearing at the horizon. 

1912 Class Poem 

With the glorious class of nineteen-twelve 

No other can compare. 
It makes its boast in stalwart youths 

And prides in maidens fair. 

The class, it is a jovial band 

Brimful of laughter and of glee, 

For every virtue does it stand, 
But from vices it is free. 

To its colors and its motto 

It shows true loyalty. 
No task begun but is well done 

In the halls of L. V. C. 

With courage and true-heartedness 

And tenderest sympathy 
Each member strives his part to do 

Without bitter rivalry. 

On such a class as nineteen-twelve 

Its hearts with truth aglow 
May kindest fortune ever smile, 

And blessings rare bestow.

Senior Class Conservatory of Music History 

IS TRUE, our class is small in number, but then "The strength of the pack 
is the wolf." In looking over our class roll you may have one or more of 
these questions to ask: How is it there are so few members in the class? Did 
not others care to belong to the senior music class of 1909, or wasn't it worth 
while? or perhaps this one: Were the members so exceptionally for advanced in 
the lore of music that they alone were worthy of senior dignity and privilege? An 
affirmative of the latter would be nearest the truth of the matter. Before giving a 
detailed account of the acquisitions of our class, a short sketch of its members can- 
not be lacking in interest to the public. Are not the biopraphies of Liszt and 
Beethoven and Wagner eagerly devoured? Have articles on modern musicians ever 
failed to please? So to my task, without further apology. 

Miss Jessie Brane, after an absence of a few years, returned late in the fall of last 
year to finish her studies here, and graduate with the class of 1909. Jessie is one of 
the brightest, most cheerful girls in college, — not to say anything of her good looks. 
But in reality, her attractive and sunny disposition lias from the fiist won the ad- 
miration of the masculine element, faculty and students, with whom she is the most 
popular girl in college. We must not forget to record that Jessie has a fine collec- 
tion of love-songs, such as "Just You" and "You're all the world to me," which she 
sings to her admirers in practice room, instead of thumping the keys. We are 
certain that a bright future awaits her. 

Miss Maberry, notorious as the "silly girl of the theory class," represents the 
class in athletics. She is an excellent cross-country sprinter, plays baseball and 
jokes. Laura has also acquired the reputation of writing anonymous love ballads, 
and of supplying refreshments of the nature of pretzels and Limburger to a certain 
senior visitant of her practice room. Everyone declares Laura a jolly girl,! of 
which charge she is undeniably convicted. 

The third member of this illustrious group of musicians is Miss Prout, who has 
won distinction along many lines; an accomplished pianist, vocal soloist and violin- 
ist. She is also an expert in the art of walking and has explored all the country 
places on all sides of the college, from the gravel-hill to the observatory tree along 
the Quittapahilla. After graduating Miss Prout will leave her paternal home, 
Wiconisco, for — well, they have not yet decided on the place. 

Mr. Mills matriculated here last fall in order not to lose, his instructor, Prof. 
Jackson. Charlie is an excellent pianist, and delights the weary students before 
meals by his lively strains in the ladies' parlor. He is a general favorite and we are 
sorry to lose him this commencement. 

With pleasant memories not unmingled with feelings of regret at our last ap- 
pearance here as students, and with a deeper reverence for our Alma Mater, we 
draw the curtain .

L. V. A. Poem 

In wisdom's memorable halls 
'Twixt L. V. A's. immortal walls 
Where measured justice tutored falls 

The wheels of knowledge firmly grind. 
Deepseated on the brows of men, 
Furrowed by conflicts now and then, 
The galled marks of toil are seen, 

All symbols of a fruitful mind. 

Out from the lists of "number three," 
Out from the home of industry, 
Out from the old Academy, 

Come vivid sparks from the forge of lore. 
And the hosts of ignorance separate, 
As Morpheus runs at a rapid rate 
When Phoebus knocks at the Eastern gate, 

Or sailors flee from an angry shore. 

Brave hearts undaunted, true as gold, 
Climb mountains high, cross mead and wold 
The Brook of Life's leaves to unfold 

And learn the precepts there contained. 
When dark and dreary days they meet, 
No cringing mien nor falt'ring feet; 
Their slogan "Onward, ne'er retreat, 

A battle won is a victory gained." 

Unfurl the standard L. V. A. 
And sing to its glory day by day 
By ramparts captured in the fray 

When wisdom's foes unmarshaled flee. 
The Red and Black, long may it wave 
O'er hearts of steel and courage brave 
Unsullied ere the Rose to save, 

Emblem of immortality.

The Christian Associations 

THE Y. W. and Y. M. C. A. are important factors in the college life of every 
student who is in any way connected with the associations. It is under 
these influences that the students are constantly reminded of their duty to 
God and their fellow beings and are made to realize the responsibility of 
their influence for good or evil upon others. 

An atmosphere of mutual helpfulness pervades the meetings held each Sunday 
afternoon in the respective halls. In the joint session convening each month the 
program is devoted to missionary consideration and discussions. 

Another important feature of the work and one which has within recent years 
received special emphasis is the systematic bible study. Appropriate courses are 
chosen in which the daily studies are outlined. Each week the various groups meet 
under a competent leader and hold a discussion of the week's lessons, developing 
those thoughts which have especially appealed to the student in his daily study. 
The primary' object of this phase of religious work is to induce the student to realize 
the importance of daily devotion. 

Besides the benefits derived from relations with the local association the student 
has the opportunity of extending his knowledge of the work and at the same time 
receives spiritual inspiration by attending the various conferences convening during 
the year. Considering the beneficial aspect of each of the conventions there is prob- 
ably no meeting of students which creates such permanent results as the summer 
conferences of the respective associations. Here it is that the student comes in con- 
tact with persons and is addressed by speakers who understand perplexing prob- 
lems arising in college life, and here they receive the necessary instruction for the 
development of a more complete and productive individual. No person who has 
ever been a delegate to such a conference will regret the sacrifice he might have 
made to make the trip possible. It has a lasting influence upon every student. 

Besides the religious influences exerted by the associations they serve as a 
medium by which the new student is welcomed and made to feel a part of the insti- 
tution. At the informal receptions held in the beginning of each term the new 
student meets and becomes acquainted with those with whom he will be more or less 
associated during the year. They at once realize that the association is interested 
in them and desires to help them in any way possible. 

The Star Course is also under the auspices of the Y. W. and Y. M. C. A. This 
gives the student the privilege of hearing at least one popular lecture, the other 
four numbers consisting of entertainments and concerts. The committee always 
wishes to select as good a course as possible and have during the past year succeed- 
ing in doing so.

A Tale of the Library 

'Twas one day in bleak December 
As I very well remember 

That I chanced into the reading room to read. 
For my heart was set on learning, 
All my soul toward nowledge yearning, 

For I knew of greatness knowledge is the seed. 

As I sat in there perusing, 
Magazines and pamphlets using, 

I was conscious of a gentle, humming noise. 
First some laughter! then a giggle, 
Then a shake and then a wiggle, 

Passing all around the room from girls to boys. 

So I glanced up in the notion 

To see the cause of such commotion, . 

For I knew that here such trouble should not be; 
And the sight that met my eyes, sir, 
Filled me with a great surprise, sir; 

I shall tell you what that day I chanced to see. 

All the girls were loo i ng foolish, 
All the boys were looi ng mulish, 

And a silly little smile was on each face. 
Each mouth looked so appetizing. 
It was not at all surprising. 

That wht re hearts were trump a iss should be an ace. 

Each maid's hair was brown and waving 
Some lad's heart to be enslaving, 

With their wily lips upturned like Cupid's bow. 
With their waists so slim and slender, 
And their hands so sott and tender, 

'Twas no wonder that the fellows giggled so. 

Still, I could not help but wonder 
What mista e or foolish blunder 

Caused this cooing now so early in the year. 
That the glorious sunny spring time, 
Warm and glorious budding ring time, 
Brought the lovers out of door I always knew. 

So I glanced up to discover 
If perchance I might nncover 

What might be the cause of all this love and wooing. 
Then I rubbed my eyes, and stared, sir, 
For this I was not prepared, sir ; 

I no longer wondered at this mischief brewing. 

Little Cupids here were prancing, 
Little Cupids here were dancing, 

With a quiver full of golden darts. 
First from man to maiden skipping 
Then from maid to man were tripping. 

As they pierced with love's own weapon every heart. 

A senior here with mind astute, 
Tall and dignified to boot, 

With his arm concealed in a suspicious way. 
While beside reposed a flower, 
(Stolen from Absinthia's bower) 

On his coat lapel a button-hole bouquet. 

Though we really must refrain 
From the mention of a name, 

Yet a little story well we recollect 
Of a certain Junior girl 
And a boy whose name is Earle, 

With their arms entwined in monogram effect. 

While their hearts as one were tuned, 
Shamelessly they sat and spooned; 

The Librarian really didn't seem to care. 
For within his little lobby, 
In his new suit looking nobby, 
Symptoms of Brane fever lurked there. 

And the Prof., so staid and austere, 
So dignified, strict and severe, 

In shocked silence gazed upon the sight surprising. 
Scouting thoughts more democratic 
Sought by edict quite dogmatic, 

To supplant the gods by one less enterprising. 

Wise men love a sickness term, 
Of which Cupid is the germ, 

And prevention is of much more worth than cure. 
So they'd best by vaccination, 
Scientific 'noculation, 

And by disinfectants keep their buildings pure. 

An Inducement 

Written in the French Canadian dialect. 

Mus' tell you 'bout de vay I feel, 
'Cause you all frien' to me. 

An' I don't min' to say few tings 
Vat som'-vat strange may be. 

Some tarn ago, I tink someting, 

Vat to me dat day com'; 
'Bout takin' me a wif charmante 

An' fix me op a horn'. 

'Tinks I, I'm lookin' de right age, 
An' han'som', wid out dou't, 

An monee, jis about as moch 
As dose dat leeve rouu' 'bout. 

I've often heard de proper ting 

Ees firs' de cage to buy, 
An' den be lookin' for de bird, 

As many pass 'long by. 

Tinks I, de firs' ting I must hav' 

Ees ver' swell propertee. 
An' so I go an' buy me dat, 

An' pay cash, yes sir 'ee. 

For manee year I keep ma eye 

Apon une petite fille, 
What I tink some day '11 marray me; 
Her firs' name ees Camille. 

She's got, oh two such beeg blu' eyes 
Fin' hair, dat's almos' black, 

An' cheeks, dat little bit rosee; 
An' lips, jus' fin' to . 

Tinks I, she'd look so nice an' sweet, 

Wid me in ma new cage. 
An' we'd bot' leeve in harmonee, 

'Cause we near 'bout von age. 

Since now dat I'm propertee man, 

De nex' ting I mus' do 
Ees buy me bran new suit o' clothes, 
From chapeau down to shoe. 

I tink, de cliapeau high black silk 

Ees proper ting to vear, 
'Cause it show off so veer genteel, 

An' go well vit ma hair. 

For coat, I take de long black frok, 

It niak' me look veer fat, 
But den de hedge, it run prar'lell 

Wid top o' ma silk hat. 

You see, I work for gran' effect; 

Vear long cravat dat ties, 
Vear pants dat made to look veer bee 

Striped up an' down long-wise. 

Ma shoos I tink, beat all de res'. 

Dat vas dere in de stor', 
I only jist do von pair buy, 

'Cause I don't need sora' mor'. 

You see me in dat suit o' clothes, 
I look lak Oscar Hammerstein, 

De opera man vat rone dat show, 
So excellent an' fin'. 

Sure now, tinks I, I'll niak' a hit 
Wid ma frien', dear Camille. 

Wid all dese tings, she can't refuse, 
At leas' dat vay I feel. 

So I feex op an' mak' de call; 

I rap on front door plac', 
But ven she see me standin' dere, 

She shut door on ma fac'. 

It strike me dat vas som'vat cold. 

I feel lak great beeg dunce, 
If you tink dat was go so nice, 

I vish you'd try it once. 

Som' tarn' ago I hear a tale 

Lak' dis, if I recall: 
"It better to hav' lot and los', 

Den not hav' lof at all." 

Well dat did consolate me som', 

But I got nodder plan; 
I sit down, write a note to her, 

An' sen' it vid mail man. 

I make explain all 'bout de tings, 

Dat for her I feex op; 
An' wonder if she'll turn me down, 

Or if she'll tak' me op. 

Veil not so long I hav' to vait, 

For answer com' from her. 
She sen' a special not' aroun', 

Wid garcon messenger. 

No need, I guess, for me to say 

Which of us took de trick ; 
You know what answer ees dat come' 

By messenger so quick. 

She say, "not dat de house it was, 

Not ma swell propertee, 
But dat she villingly accep' 

All 'cause dat it was me." 

A. R. Spessard. 

A Girl's Return From College 

Now here I am in the dear old place — 

Yes, dear mother, I'm here to stay. 
Let me hold your hair against my face, 

And kiss both chee s in the dear old way. 
Just look at me hard — I'm well and strong, 

Just feel my arms — they'll stand the test; 
I'll go to the kitchen where I belong, 

You go to the porch and rest. 

I liked my teachers; I liked my books; 

I had my share of the pran s and fun; 
But my heart came back to the sweet home nooks, 

And I thought of you when the day was done. 
I used to think what you had for tea, 

Just what you were doing and how you were dressed, 
And some how or other it seemed to me, 

I loved 5 7 ou much better than all the rest. 

Oh, dear little mother, it brings the tears 

Whenever I think what I've let you do; 
You've planned for my pleasures years and years — 

It's time I planned a little for you. 
So drop that apron and smooth your hair; 

Read, visit or knit — what suits you best; 
Lean back in your chair, let go your care, 

Just take a vacation and rest.

Keep a-Plugging 

Are your lessons getting hard? 

Keep a-plugging. 
Always been the highest card, 

Keep a-plugging. 
Never win without a try, 
Ne'er a crown without a sigh, 
You will get there by and by, 

Keep a-plugging. 

In well doing ne'er grow weary, 

Keep a-plugging. 
Though the task be hard and dreary, 

Keep a-plugging. 
At hard luck don't stop, for shame! 
You're the only one to blame, 
Keep a-going just the same, 

Keep a-plugging. 

Look above toward higher things, 

Keep a-plngging. 
Defeat's the only thing that stings, 

Keep a-plugging. 
Keep your eyes then on the top, 
On the best place get the drop, 
Keep a-going, never stop. 

Keep a-pluggiug.

Base Ball 

Upon the level field behold 

A gathering of pleasure's court, 

To play a game of college ball, 
In friendly rivalry and sport. 

Swift from the pitcher's hand the ball 
Flies till it meets the bat, and then 

Upward it scales the sky's blue wall, 
Trembles, then drops to earth again. 

Then barken to the lusty shout 
That seems to shake the very sun: 

"Tell us the score," Is it an "out," 
Or did the player make a "run ? " 

So every afternoon their play 

Makes tougher muscles, redden cheeks, 
And keeps our sturdy boys to-day 

The rivals of the ancient Greeks. 

Tickle, tickle, little flea, 
How I wonder where you be! 
Somewhere underneath my hat, 
Where the d are you at ? J. E. 

The Influence of Anglo-Saxon 

So deeply was I engrossed in the preparation of Anglo-Saxon, that 
unaware I was locked in the Library- Under its spell as if the music 
of Orpheus had charmed me, I saw and heard the following strange 

Whaet ! the light was dim in the old Library 

Softly op'ed the door as there entered 

both youth and maiden. Bright seemed the light 

as they approached their favorite alcove. 

Whaet ! he was both tall and fair 

and she though not so tall was fair and slender. 

She was seated and he by her side; 

behold their young heads to-gether they drew 

until they met and — Whaet ! the light 

grew dim as before. Again the door opened; 

there entered two; the light increased 

as noiselessly they did wonder 

'till they beheld a secluded retreat 

whither, hand in hand, he led her where 

he, of waving locks, spoke to her of auburn hair 

alone and undisturbed the sad words of ' 

She shed a tear; he sadly arose; 
Weep thou no more and be this thy comfort — 
- but as he with arms extended toward her 
advanced a step — Whaet! all had vanished. 
A thridda mael opened the door; 
two forms glided in, their faces were sad 
Too sad, too sad and they so young. 
They talk of times past; of pleasant hours 
spent in the library. Gifts they exchanged, 
class pins of High School. Then spoke they vows 
that they would ever remember each other. 
E'en did he promise to write to her often. 
Then sighed the tall dark lad mael ist me to faran ! 
The blond arose so stately and fair 
and both — Whaet ! all was darkness.

To Prof. N. C. S. 

By a grateful Junior, after successfully passing an examination 
in English 3. 

To thee, whose heavy tasks and censures just 
Imposed on wearied students ever must 

Make us to groan; 
Whose unrelenting claims absorb our time, 
Whose ceaseless reproof causes us in rhyme 

Our lot bemoan; 

Yet for thy unrequited toil profound, 
Thy sincere interest, thy judgment sound 

Of all our ways; 
In spirit of true thankfulness 
We evermore thy name shall bless; 

We give thee praise.

Lebanon Valley Songs 


(Tune — "I'm Afraid to go home in the Dark. 

( ), dear, 

Listen here, 
I'm afraid, you'll go home in the dark. 

So to-day 

You'll have to play 
If you hope to reach you mark. 

But when you see 

How the score goes; oh, gee! 
You'll never think it a lark, 

And you'll beat it back home, Boys, 
I'm afraid vou'll go home in the dark. 

(Tune — "Marching through Georgia.") 
Our boys are on the football field 
They've gathered for the fray; 
The L- V. yell is in the air, 
We've come to win the day. 
We'll teach the game of football 
To our friends across the way, 
While we are shouting for L. V. 

Then Rush ! O rush ! 
We'll rush the ball along. 

A kick, a shove, we'll send it through the throng. 
No line can stop our fellows in 
Their rushes fierce and strong. 
While we are shouting for L. V. 

Just watch our fellows take the ball, 

This time we'll see some fun. 

The ( ) boys are rattled 

And we'll score another run. 

Like lightning through the line they go, 

The victory is won. 

While we are shouting for L. V. 

Chorus — Then rush ! etc. 

(Tune — "Shame on you.") 
( ) shame on you 

Can't you gain a yard or two? 
You might befool us now and then 
But you're not in the class with the L. V. men. 
Now we know what we're talking about 
And we will put your men to rotit. 
And when it's o'er we all will shout 
Shame on you ! 

What's the matter with our team 

They're all right. 

What's the matter with our team 

Out of sight. 

Rah ! Rah ! Sis ! Boom ! Bah ! 

Give a regular scream Hurrah ! 

There's never a minute 

That ( ) in it 

With L. V. C. 


Down across the field they come. 

Those boys in white and blue. 

They've put their faith in h. V. C. 

To her they will be true 

To yield before ( ) line 

Is a thing they'll never do 

Hip! Hip! Hurray! 

And a I, 2, 3, 

And we'll rush the ball right through. 

Here's to L. V. C. Drink her down, 

drink her down. 
Here's to L,. V. C. Drink her down, 

drink her down. 
Here's to L. V. C. she's so happy and so free, 
Drink her down, drink her down, 

drink her down, down, down. 

Balm of Gilead, Gilead, Balm of 
Gilead, Gilead, Balm of Gilead, 

Way down on the Bingo farm. 

We won't go home any more, 

We won't go home any more, 
We won't go home any more, 

Way down on the Bingo farm.

Purpose of the Club 

To keep burning in the hearts of loyal republicans enthusiasm 
for the Grand Old Party 

The club, consisting of more than forty members, with banners flying, was 
given a prominent place in the parade in Lebanon on the night before President 
Taft s election. After the parade the members of the club were ushered into the 
Academy of Music, where seats were reserved for them, and where a number of 
songs and yells were given. 

A Tale of the House 

Here beginneth the Tale. 

It came to pass in the same year that there dwelt in our house devout men of 
the ministerial association. Now these same men gathered together for the singing 
of songs, and the reading of the Word, which is altogether comely. Notwithstanding 
the goodly intentions of these pious men, there arose in the house one of ill repute, 
and behold how he wrought much havoc. For as a thief in the night, he drew nigh 
unto the flock, and did that which was very unseemly. And straightway the culprit 
made his escape. 

Explicit prima pars 

Sequitur pars secunda. 
Now when the chiefs of the men would depart to their resting places for the 
night, it happened that a strange report was brought unto them, wherefore they 
were not of one accord concerning the matter which was discovered. One, the presi- 
dent said, "Let us go in peace;" whereupon another waxed wroth, and taking in his 
hand certain receptacles of -water, the which were not uncommon in those days, he 
entereth into the abode of one Dawson, the brother of Adam. Now, albeit he ac- 
cused this man of the evil deed, the same was not guilty. But the other would not 
hearken unto him, and being sorely put out with himself, he cast the receptacles oj 
water into the man's house, doing much injury. 

Explicit secunda pars 
Sequitur pars tercia. 

And thereupon came Adam. 

Now when the man, whose name, being interpreted meaneth "Judge" perceived 
what what he had done, his courage forsook him, and he was as one in a dream. 
For Adam hud spoken, — he of few words and mighty of strength. Adam, moreover, 
exhorted his'brother to tell in words the meaning of this tomfoolery. Now, Daw- 
son, a man not easily moved into passion, straightway stepped forth and smote his 
enemy in the face, saying, "Take that." But his enemy would not battle with him. 
Whereupon he whose name is Judge, gave unto Adam a sheckel; and having recom- 
pensed the man for his loss, departed in anger. 

Explicit tercia pars 
Sequitur pars quarta. 

And it came to pass that as the multitude was gathered together on the Sabbath 
in the House of Fair Women, he whose name is Judge, being moved by the beauty 
of one of the damsels made his way to the place where she stood. Now Judge had 
not perceived that Dawson, who was a kinsman of the damsel, stood by her, neither 
knew she that the nun spake not one to the other, because of anger, but believing 
that they knew not another, the beautiful one made known the Judge to her kins- 
man. And those who stood by rejoiced, and sang songs of praise; but the Judge took 
Dawson by the hand, and there ended the bickering. 

Behold the excellence of woman; a thing of beauty is a joy forever. 
Here is ended the Tale of the House.

Many ties have been and are constantly being formed here at college, — bonds 
of various natures. Very intimate friendships are vowed, and (as in the case of a 
certain literary senior and a senior music student, (see final drawing) plays are 
given. For making these associations possible, the college performs a noble 
duty to the state. 

Much too has been said concerning the evidences of brotherly and "cousinly" 
love here. This is undoubtedly due to the existence of the organization known as 
the "Brothers' Club." 

How Funny it Would Seem 

To see Frost with his hair combed ! 

To see Wiggie "walk" across the campus ! 

To see Peiffer in foot ball togs ! 

To know when Strickler 'o ? is going to graduate ! 

To hear Laura Maberry tell the truth ! 

To hear Renn talk less and do more J 

To see Brown going to classes ! 

To see Rettew sporting a mustache ! 

To hear Myra Kiracofe say, "Come on, Smitty !" 

To be allowed to go walking Sunday after Y. M. and Y. W. C. A. 

To be allowed to dance ! 

To have a square meal at the dining hall ! 

To be caught looting the kitchen ! 

To find the book you were looking for in the library ! 

To have a real gym. of our own ! 

To win a base ball game ! 

Wouldn't it Seem Funny 

If "Ollie" didn't make a noise ? 

If Brunner would cease talking ? 

If "Fat" Shaffer were a social star? 

If Peepie were to take Biology II ? 

If Miss Maberry were to duck somebody ? 

If Bashore would crack a joke? 

If Mrs. Schlichter would forget to pay her regular visits to the 
Ladies' Hall ? 

If Prof. Schlichter would assign a short lesson ? 

If Prof. Shippee would attend chapel? 

If Strock wouldn't go to Lebanon ! 

If Deleth had a girl ? 

If "Vic" didn't have a girl ? 

If Miss Brane were not entertaining someone ? 

If the Death League were a fake ? 

If the chapel hymnals were to disappear ?

Kind Reader, our task of editing is finished, and it is not without regret that 
these last pages are wafted out of our hands to the printers. In your criticism re- 
member that we are but human and that talent is rare. To some this book may serve 
various purposes. Herein you may find the likeness of your future wife, or your 
future husband. In the years to come, some, in leafing over these pages may sigh, 
— "It might have been!" Ah, the tender reminiscences! 

In the foregoing pages, believe us, there resides no satire, for even you have 
been jolly at times. We trust to your aptness of interpretation. 

We wish to express our sense of gratitude to all who have contributed to our 
book. Especial thanks are due to Miss La Verne Keister, who so ably assisted us in 
furnishing numerous drawings. 

In the aspiration that this book may serve to increase your love for the Alma 
Mater, and incidentally remember the class of Nineteen-ten, we bid you a last fond
