^Vf^ E HUMBLY present to you the thirteenth volume of 
^^^^ the Bizarre. In it we have endeavored to portray all 
phases of student life during another year at our college, so that 
in after years, by reading over these pages, we may recall our col- 
lege days, the pleasures and the work attending those days, and 
that we may renew in our minds our great love for our Alma Afa- 
ter. We have done our very best. We pray you, take our effort 
kindly. We have finished. It is yours to criticise. Proceed.

Professor Henry Kckert >Vaiiner 


P28, 1885, at York, Pennsylvania. His mother. Mrs. Clara 
J. Wanner, was of Scotch- Irish descent and his father, 
Atreus Wanner, superintendent of the public schools of 
York, Pennsylvania, of German parentage. 

He attended the public schools of the city of his birth 
and graduated from the York High School in 1903. Enter- 
ing the University of Pennsylvania in the fall, he remained 
till the end of the Junior year, when he secured leave of ab- 
sence After working for six months in a lumber camp at 
Aspen, Colorado, and one year as assistant chemist and as- 
sayer with the Arizona Mining and Smelting Company, 
Needles, California, he returned to the University of Penn- 
sylvania. He was graduated from that institution in 1909 receiving the degree of 
Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. 

In the Fall of 1909 he was elected Professor of Chemistry and Physics at 
Lebanon Valley College which position he now holds 

Professor Wanner is a member of the Americal Chemical Society. 
He began his work as Professor with us but two years ago. In that time he 
has extended the scope of the department of Chemistry so that Lebanon \'alley 
may well be proud of it. But a visit to the department will show its organization 
and its effectiveness, which testifies to his mastery of his work His knowledge 
of Organic Chemistry may well be envied. Besides Chemistry, he has made a 
specialty of the study of Geology and Mineralogy, and every rock and land for- 
mation has for him a charm inviting investigation. 

In the class-room he is firm but sympathetic. In the laboratory he invites 
you to find out for yourself, but is always ready to assist when assistance means 
economy of time and no loss of opportunity to learn. We have learned to love 
his methods and undertake his subjects with confidence and enthusiasm 

Out of class he is no longer a Professor but is one of us. By placing himself 
on a level with the student he has endeared himself to every one. He is a sin- 
cere friend of the boys and the boys love him. Not a little of his success in the 
class room can be attributed to the fact that the student feels confident that the 
good will and interest of the instructor is centered upon him. It is only in this 
way that the best in both has been brought to the surface. 

We cannot fail to appreciate his interest in us and in the welfare of our col- 
lege. Every one of us admires him for the loyal support he has given to our 
Athletics. When others forsook, he came to the rescue.

Class Historv 


NT SEPTEMBER 1907 there was born in a little side room of the old 
Academy building the present pride of Lebanon Valley, the class of 191 1 . 
Though born amid humble surroundings it has risen until now it sways 
the scepter of power and influence over student life at the college Because of 
this fact there is talk of preserving the little room for its historical value even 
though we are only seniors and not " D. D's.," " L L D's., " or Ph. D's. " 

Did you say, "Tell us all!" How can I? It is only he whose annals are 
brief thit publishes it all. As Freshmsn we were the first to introduce the cus- 
tom of wearing "Green Caps" here, — a custom that has been followed ever since. 
The "Sophs" thought that we were as brash as a country pumpkin vine: but 
were we? The result of our first contest, the bag rush, with them plainly tells. 
Our greatest victory however during our freshman year was the winning of the 
Freshman-Sophomore debate. It is true we knew little about foot ball this first 
year, but when it came to holding a banquet we so far outwitted the "Sophs " 
that they simply stood and looked on in wonder and amazement. 

The Sophomore year found a few old men gone, and a few new ones willing 
to enlist in the ranks of the scarlet and the white. The Freshmen who out-num- 
bered us were bitterly disappointed when the shot ending the bag rush was fired 
and the bag was found several feet across their goal line. In athletic contests 
however thej' proved opponents worthy of our steel, but through it all we always 
had our team on the field to defend our honor. It was not so with them when 
forces seemed superior, for who ever saw or heard any thing of their debating 
team? While ours was ready for the contest their's was nowhere to be found, 

\\'e point to the 191 i Bizarre and the Junior Oratorical Contest as monu- 
ments of our Junior year. 

But why all this boasting? Would we have the reader believe we were not 
discouraged by defeat nor daunted by disappointment. We have used them all, 
victories and defeats, to help us higher until now we are about to reach the height 
of graduation. Their contests in which we have struggled side by side have 
united us as loyal sons of the scarlet and white. All through these years the 
blue and white has been mingled with the scarlet and white until now there re- 
mains but one banner, one purpose, namely, to honor, to revere our Alma Mater.

Class Poem 


Once the goal was far away; 

Now, 'tis here. 
Once we dreamed a dreamland laj'; 

Now, we fear. 
Fear the empty phantom of 

Unused hours, 
Fear the dizzy dark of life's 

Old misty showers. 

Then we wished our course were run, 

In mute remorse; 
But now we wish 'twere yet to run, 

That same old course! 
Yet, fragrant in our hearts are thoughts 

Of laurels won, 
Our nestling spirits soar, knowing 

Achievements done. 

We aimed at stars, we struck the moon; 

An accident! 
Now, we think we aimed too soon, 

Like precedent! 
But boys, we aimed! there's one more mark 

Our missile mars! 
Let's aim again, and then, perhaps 

We'll hit the stars.

BIZARRE 1 U 1 2 

Oiir Senior Girls 

'Tis girls that make the worlds go rouud, 
Where e'er revolving worlds are found, 
They are the sun and stars that light 
Us, through this universal night. 

In every land, in every clime 
There have been girls, since dawn of time 
But ne'er such girls were seen, I trow 
As those at Lebanon \'alley now. 

Pre eminent among this band 
The angelic girls of ' 1 1 stand; 
Personifying every grace 
That can exist in form or face. 

For them it is the spring returns 
And autumn's crimson banner burns; 
The mocking-bird and oriole, — 
They onlv sing to charm their souls. 

Helen of Troy could not compare 
With our dear girls — they are so fair; 
They are the dearest, sweetest things 
That ever wore engagement rings! 

A nation's jewels are not its pearls 
Or gold or rubies, but its girls. 
Not deeds nor conquests of a state — 
Its girls alone can make it great. 

So we of ' 1 1 lay no claim 
To great achievements, for our fame. 
The world shall judge us by our girls 
Our matchless, our immortal girls.

Serene and calm is lie, for lie has liverl 
longer tliaii most of us. Ami not in 
vain, for he has gatherer! ahont him a 
family of his own. He was horn in 
South Lebanon Township, August 8, 
1884. The farm was his liotiie. but find- 
ing farming a very hard task, he looked 
about for a more enticing occupation. 
Finally, having prepared for teaching, 
he assumed charge of a flock of xouiig- 
sters and inipaited to them words of 
advice and wisdom for two terms. Still 
dissatisfied, he again looked about him 
and saw far above him the plane of the 
ministry Making present cimditions a 
stepping stone to better things, he com- 
pleted his preparatory work at L. V. 
Academy and began his college career. 
Arthur has decided to make the ministry 
his life work and is at present serving 
Grantville charge most effectively. 

Mathematical-Ph\ sical Philokosmian 
Business Manager 
You certainly know where Ono, Leba- 
non County is. That is where "Ollie" 
was born January 8, 1890. "Ollie" is the 
life and spirit of our class, the favorite 
of all — ready to meet any situation, any 
question from French to Chemistry in a 
surprising manner. Philosophy, Logic, 
and Psychology are nothing for him. 
Surely he could not have learned all he 
knows at Lebanon High. Part of it is 
the result of his trip to the West. 
"Ollie" stoutly maintains that he is go- 
ing to be a minister — his family has de- 
cided that wav for him. At once grave 
and serious, foolish and mischievous, 
and "O, what a spendthrift of his tounge 
he is." But listen! Oliver is the only 
"Man" in our class who has announced 
his engagement. It is to the smallest, 
darkest-eyed girl that "1912" can claim. 

Earl Henry Carmanv Annville, Pa. 

Mathematical-Physical Philokosmian 

"Comniie" first saw the light of day at 
Annville, Pa., ou July i6, 1892. The 
patriotic feeling, dominant at that season 
attached itself to this young man's char- 
acter. It was intended that Earl should 
make his debut into .Annville society on 
July the fourth but owing to some mis- 
understanding he did not arrive until 
some time later. After graduating from 
Annville High School in '07, and Leba- 
non Valley Academy in '08, he decided 
to enter the college itself. He is a very 
clever and apt student. He spends much 
of his -ipare time with the "bunch" in 
the dormitorj- and has become so closely 
allied with them, that one invariably 
forgets that he lives out in the town. 
After graduating he expects to teach 
Chemistry and — ".Ah! what's the use! 
Let's go to Lebanon." 

SAMUEL O. GRIMM Red Lion, Pa. 

Cliemical- Biological Philokosmian 

Sam, hails from Red Lion. The peo- 
ple there still celebrate September 3 in 
honor of that day back in '89, when Sam 
first came to town. Nothing eventful 
seems to have happened until 1904, when 
he graduated from Red Lion High 
School. The greatest day in Sam's life 
so far, was when he set out for Millers- 
ville in the fall of '05. He finished there 
in '07, but took something away with 
him much more valuable than a diploma 
— to him at least. The two years foUovs'- 
ing were spent in teaching. In '09, "S. 
O." came to L. V. preparatory to accept- 
ing a professorship in some University. 
Here there is a steady application to 
work with no outside interference — but 
nobody wonders why. Capable of doing 
any amount of work and doing it well, 
he is a credit to the class of 1912. 

Clair F. Harnish Meclianicsburg, Pa. 
Historical-Political Pbilokosiiiian 
Clair calls Meclianicsburg liis home — 
a thing of which he is extremely proud. 
Although the almanac does not schtdule 
a panic in the year 1889. there certainly 
must have been one. And it was hard 
luck for Clair, too. There never was a 
harder or more diligent student than 
Clair. Clair has always been a staunch 
supporter of athlf tics and has all but 
won his letters in football. His skill on 
the diamond has been honored by his 
election to the captamship of our base- 
ball team for 191 1. I wonder if you 
have noticed Clair's growing love for 
music lately. That undoubtedly is what 
is drawing him so constantly, so fervent- 
ly out Railroad street. It certainly could 
be nothing less than this that would 
make him neglect ".'\bner's interests " 
so miserably. But "music hath charms." 


Historical-Political Philokosmian 

Lo! what have we here? It is 
"Tommy ' who first > xi^ted somewhere 
in Dauphin County in the neighborhood 
of Lykens. He was born in 1890, and 
first brightened his ideas at Lykens High. 
He came to Lebanon Valley in 19C18. with 
the avowed intention of becoming a min- 
ister. "Tommy" long since adopted for 
his motto: "Much study is a weariness 
to the flesh." But why much study 
when he can learn it all in an incredibly 
short time. "Tommy" is our heavy- 
weight and is a star on the gridiron, hav- 
ing had three year's experience on the 
Varsity and has been appropriately elect- 
ed Captain for our next season. He is 
an enthusiast in colUge and i lass spirit. 
When he has finished his college course 
he expects to assume direction of his 
"dad's" clothing firm. 

Catherine E Hkrshey Hersliey, Pa. 
Historical-Political Clionian 

"Cat" is our athletic girl. Hershey is 
her liome, but she put in her appearance 
at Derry Church. April 30, iSgo. U'e 
know little of her youth and hence we 
offer no explanations. To satisfy her 
desire for education, she decided to 
spend some time and enertjy at Lebanon 
Valley. "Cat" is a faithful standby of 
the "College News." She firmlv re- 
fuses to take a dare, to turn down a bet, 
to decline any invitation for a good time, 
which is shown by her ready acquies- 
cence to dine with "the boys" at Gray- 
bills. She has the splendid reputation 
of being one of the best students of 
which L. V. can boast. With her ex- 
perience on the "College News" we may 
expect her to become a prominent journ- 
alist. Failing in that she will doubtless 
take unto herself a husband and "live 
happily ever after." 


Historical-Political Kalozetean 

Every time we pronounce his name 
we think of sneezing or saying, "No, 
she is not." He's a kidder but that's 
not all. He is our class poet and he is 
an orator and reader as well. Who is 
not acquainted with his sweet, melodi- 
ous voice? He graduates from the de- 
partment of Oratory in June 191 1. He 
appeared on Mother Earth January i, 
1SS5, at Sardis, Pa. After various vicissi- 
tudes of fortune, of which he can give 
no satisfactory account, he conceived a 
business career. After he graduated 
from Vandergrift Commercial School 
and had made up his mind that there 
was something lacking somewhere, he 
came to Lebanon Valley. He is a master 
of wit and can turn any situation to his 
credit. He fell in with us and is mak- 
ing good. It's all here and it's all true. 

DONALD C. KEISTKR Aiiiiville, I'a. 
Historical- Political Kalozeteaii 

Donald, frequently spoken of as 
"Don," was born at Riverside, Cal., 
Nov. 23, 1889. Since his father is Presi- 
dent of the college. Don is a good boy 
hut sometimes plays the "fowl game" 
which is predominant among college 
students. He is a social star, spending 
his spare moments in taking care of the 
girl and visiting his friends in the dor- 
mitory. He is a graduate of L V'. .Acad- 
emy and is fortunate in having the honor 
of attending several Public Schools, 
which has -.uhjected him to various in- 
fluences. He is medium in stature and 
has an attractive personality. He is the 
artist of this book and his sketches them- 
selves speak for his artistic ability. He 
always sticks to his opinions, which 
cuses him to indulge frequently in ar- 
gumentation, which is his chief delight. 
He IS undecided about his future work. 


Historical-Political Clioniau 

Edna was born February 25. 1892, at 
Myerstown. After spending a few years 
there she moved to Reading and conies 
to us as an honor graduate of that High 
School. She entered Lebanon Valley as 
a member of the class of '13, but after 
spending one year in that class she de- 
cided to join the class of '12. The most 
important element of her character is 
her pleasing manner, always wearing a 
contented smile. She is an exception- 
ally bright student and is the Profs.' last 
resort when all others fail. Her chief 
delight is in being a help-mate in the 
work of Chemistry and Physics, in which 
she takes profound interest. On enter- 
ing L. V. she seemed as one to whom 
"love" was a ridiculous word, but she 
has gradually become a convert of cupid, 
for which she cannot be censured. 


Modern Language Clionian 

"Lizzie" was born February 4, iSgi at 
Dover, York County, Pa. She gra'lnat- 
ed from the North York High School 
class of 'oS and York City High School 
class of '09. After the completion of her 
high school course she came to Lebanon 
Valley to better satisfy her insatiable de- 
sire for knowledge. She possesses great 
intellectual ability and is a profound 
thinker. She is a member of the "scrub 
faculty" and is splendidly equipped for 
her work. She is the only one of the 
fair sex to have the honor of being on 
the Bizarre Staff, where she has been 
faithful to her task. She frequently en- 
tertains in the Ladies' Parlor but she 
claims it is a waste of time — the L. V. 
boys are too slow. Lizzie thinks of 
teaching but we fear that her kind and 
sweet disposition will soon attract her 
into a narrower sphere — the home. 

TITUS J. LEIBOLD Reading, Pa. 

Modern Language Philokosmian 

Titus, chaplain of the boys' dormi- 
tory, was born and reared in Reading 
which he claims accounts for his peculiar 
prouonciation of his • V" and "W." 
After graduating from the Reading High 
School he decided to come to Lebanon 
Valley with the intention of preparing 
for his life work of administering comfort 
to sin-sick souls. Titus is a bright stu- 
dent in most of his classes which he 
says, "is due to the paternal influence 
his room-mate 'Ollie' exerted over him 
in his Freshman year." He is passion- 
ately fond of the atmosphere of his room 
in which he can be found at any time 
except when taking his morning walk or 
his semi-annual bath. He is very sys- 
tematic in all his duties, spending his 
spare moments in reading Philosophy 
and Theology in order to prepare himself 
more thoroughly for his chosen vocation. 


CARRIE S. LKIHT Jonestown, Pa. 

Modern Language Clioniaii 

Carrie enjoys the liistinction of being 
the most excitable of our girls, especial- 
ly when witnessing inter-class contests. 
This, however, signifies her profound 
class spirit She has lived in Jonestown 
all her life, and she says it is the "Ideal 
of her Dreams." Carrie graduated from 
Jonestown High School in 1906. She 
then decided to satisfy her ambition by 
taking a course at L. V. C and while 
here she has always proved to be a good 
student, which shows that her aim will 
be attained. Her greatest fault is that 
she is so backward; but then you hear 
one voice whisper, "You don't know 
Carrie like I do." and we should not be 
surprised to hear soon after she receives 
her diploma that she has become the 
help-mate of one of our 1913 boys, for 
we are told that she loves him dearly. 
Carrie was born 1S91. 

Samtel B. Pummer Hagerstown, Md. 
Historical-Political Philokosmian 
Sam was brought into life in the hot 
month of July on the fourteenth day in 
1891. He graduated from Hagerstown 
High School in 1909, and from there en- 
tered Lebanon Valley as a Sophomore. 
He at once joined the class in all their 
undertakings and showed much interest 
in athletics, until he was disabled with a 
fractured bone. Since that he has not 
entered any except marble-shooting and 
pie eating contests and social work in the 
Ladies' Parlor. He is a very brilliant 
student especially in his line, the His- 
torical-Political course. In his first year 
he did some work towards his A. B. — but 
using Sam's words, "Me for Lebanon." 
The one of numerous things that makes 
one delight in his company, is his keen 
sense of humor and wit Sam says he is 
going to take law when he gets his 
"dip" at Lebanon Valley. 


Lebanon, Pa. 

Josiah, commonly known as "Jesse," 
claims Jeddo, Luzerne county, as his 
birth-place, being born there in 1891. 
For a time he attended the public schools 
of that place. He came to Lebanon at 
the age of eleven and was a member of 
the class of 1908 Lebanon High School, 
and is now what we term "Lebanon 
Stock," some of which is smuggled into 
the Freshman class each year. Right 
from the start "Jesse" made good with 
the Profs., and also made a great hit 
with the girls, always trying out new 
ones, and for the first week doing things 
up in A-i style, and then some one else 
"butted in," and "beat him out." We 
do not know what "Jesse" intends to do 
after leaving L. V. We see him in no 
other business than that of the proprie- 
torship of the Reed Shoe Store. 

IVAN L. RESSLER, Shamokin, Pa. 
Chemical-Biological Kalozetean 

At last we have discoverd a disciple of 
hard work and we are constantly alarmed 
for fear Ivan might be overcome by an 
attack of nervous prostration. He comes 
from the coal regions where he has al- 
ways been accustomed to seeing work 
being done. Possibly that accounts for 
his failuie to note the necessity of devo- 
tion to that human past-time. He was 
at Shaniokin in 1S91, and after graduat- 
ing at Shamokin High School in 1909, he 
joined our happy throng the following 
fall. Ivan is an excellent barber and can 
cut hair and "whiskers" to order. Room 
No. 5 ( Ivan's room) is the rendezvous for 
the "weary." Ivan never lets anything 
but a member of the opposite sex worry 
him, but takes matters as tb?y come. 
Such sound Philosophy cannot fail to 
make of Ivan a great man, famous thg 
world over. 

CHESTER E. RETTEW Columbia, Pa. 
Classical Kalozetean 

When the sun rose on the morning of 
October 4, 1S90, it shone with greater 
brilliancy because of the advent of Ches- 
ter, commonly known as "Chetty." This 
lad received his early training in the 
Columbia public schools, graduating in 
1908. Those who knew him first called 
him "Lizzie" because he seemed so 
gentle in his nature. He came to Leba- 
non Valley and endeavored to raise a 
mustache and appeared in public in full 
dress. His mustache proved a complete 
failure and — well, he soon put away 
these childish things. This year he be- 
gan his work in the ministry and is now 
serving his first charge. Early in his 
college course he captivated the heart of 
one of our fair Co-eds and his devotion 
has no ceasing. After receiving his A. 
B., he e.xpects to go to a seminary, and 
then we will greet him as Bishop Rettew. 


Modern Language Clionian 

Nellie is the only girl in our class who 
conits from "Lebanon up." She has 
alwavs lived there, that is, ever since 
August 15, iSc^'g. But it is rumored that 
now she prefers Avon to her native city 
and more than likely she will take up 
her abode in that quiet country t iwn 
just as soon as some of the 1913 "Lights" 
graduate. Nellie is a tall attractive girl 
whose appearance tells you that she is 
an untiring and diligent student. Her 
extreme fondness and aptitude for Latin 
and French make her quite a star in that 
department. Her thorough preparation 
for her work was acquired at Lebani n 
High School. She is a born leader and 
could uphold woman's rights, if she 
should chose to do so. Her inclinations 
run in a different channel, and are well 
expressed in her motto, "Waste not your 
affections on the desert air." 

JAMES C. SHIVEIvY Fayetteville, Pa. 
Classical Philokosmian 

"Jinmiie" comes to us from Cham- 
bersburg High School from which he 
graduated in 1909. He claims he made 
his presence known for the iirst time at 
Fayetteville, Pa., February 25, 1890. He 
attended Chanibersburg Academy for a 
short time until he assimilated so much 
of its intellectuality that it was forced to 
the wall. He then finished his prepara- 
tory course at the above mentioned High 
School. James came into our midst so 
quietly that we did not recognize the ad- 
dition to our class until a few weeks 
later, for James has a very tender voice, 
and it is exceedinglj' diiEcult for him to 
be heard at a distsnce of a few feet. 
"Jinimie" is a hard student and as long 
as his mind does not wander after the 
fair co-eds he pulls one "A" after the 
other. He intends to continue his stud- 
ies at Vale. 


Hi>torical-Political Philokosmian 

Charles, better known as "C. C," 
sa^ s he came into the world January 5, 
1S91, in a sunny little village down by 
York. He received his early education 
in the public schools of that place and 
was presented a diploma in 1907. He 
entered Lebanon Valley in the fall of 
1908 after having blistered school kids 
for one whole year. Work has no ter- 
rors for him. He came to college for 
the purpose of finding for him.self a help- 
mate and he has been quite successful 
ever since he struck the place. He used 
to like to go to Lebanon quite frequently 
but this year he seems to be most inter- 
ested in the oil business. But in spite 
of all, Charlie says he is going to study 
law. Knowing some of the requirements 
of the profession we conclude that he 
will be a decided success. 

NORMAN THOMAS Hagerstowii, Md. 

Historical-Political Philokosmian 

Norman "blew in" to L. V. C. from 
Shenandoah Collegiate Institute from 
which he was graduated. He started 
trouble for the first time January 24, 
1885, at, well, he says, "Away out in the 
country close to Loppin's Cross-roads, 
if you know where that is." He is the 
only member in our class having a "B. 
S." He is a minister and bears the re- 
putation of being the mctst pious and 
solemn brother in our class. He is a 
hard, diligent student nevertheless and 
will sometime become one of the leam 
ing men of our church. He cares noth- 
ing for athletics and this affords him 
more time to spend with his books. We 
see a high position awaiting him so-de 
years hence wliich may be the head of a 
family — we are careful not to be too 
sure about it. 


Royalton, Pa- 

This petite, brunette lassie was born 
at Hunimelstown, Pa., on January 6, 
18S9. Owing to the fact that her father 
is a minister, her preparatory education 
was acquired on the installment plan. 
She absorbed part of her knowledge at 
Hershey and part at AUentown, where 
she graduated in '07. After teaching 
one year in Lehigh County she entered 
L. V. Helen is the prettiest girl in our 
class. Quiet and unassuming in her 
manner, she possesses a subtle charm 
which has brought more than one young 
man to her feet. We venture the pre- 
dictiou that after graduation she will 
either become a minister's wife or a 
deaconess. We wish her success in 
either event. "When she had passed, it 
was like the ceasing of exquisite music." 


Aiiiiville, Pa. 

On the morning of July 9, 1881, in Jef- 
ferson township, Washington Co., Pa., a 
stork was seen hovering over a certain 
house. It soon alighted and left a chub- 
by little urchin as a present to the happy 
parents. Because of his youthful pre- 
cocity and his inherent goodness his 
parents decided to educate him for the 
ministry. Accordingly he was sent to 
Brockwayville High School where he 
graduated in '97. After tw-o years addi- 
tional work at that place he entered 
Albright Prep school in '07. There he 
finished two years of college work and 
then joined the Junior class at Lebanon 
Valley. He has the honor of being one 
of the two benedicts in our class and is 
the proud father of three children. He

GUY WINGERD Chambersburg, Pa. 
Classical Philokosmian 

Guy, otherwise known as "Gee," was 
born on December 4, 1S90, at Chambers- 
burg, tliat beautiful town of the Cumber- 
land Valley where "Dutch" is unknown. 
After having completed his preparatory 
course at the Chambersburg Academy 
from which institution he was graduated 
in 'o,S, he came to Lebanon Valley as a 
freshman. Because of his manly habits 
and genial disposition, Guy has endear- 
ed himself not only to his fellow students 
but to the Facult}' as well. His one 
great failing, however, is a great weak- 
ness for the gentler sex, in whose com- 
pany he is constantly found. He is him- 
self a decided blonde and in direct con- 
tradiction to that great law of Physics 
that like repels like, has ever had a de- 
cided preference for "Blondes." He 
expects to teach several years and then 
pursue his education in higher fields.

DiISTAXCE lends enchantment," and we look back upon our own happj- 
__^ Freshman days with a full sense of pleasure; our relations and sympathy 
^^b with our cousins, the class of 1914, has forced us to recall all the exper- 
iences of the happiest period of our career — our Freshman year. Things that 
seemed hard and unpleasant then, have been generoush' softened by the gentle 
touch of time. 

First of all, I wish to record our first victory on the gridiron, with a score of 
10 — o. Then came our basket ball game, lively from start to finish: our boys con- 
stantly urged on and encouraged by the loyal cheers of their classmates, left the 
scene of the contest wiien the final score was 10 — 6. Poor 1911 left it with 
gloomy faces and after many naughty displays of temper 

Amid all these struggles for athletic victories, came our class banquet, a great 
affair, and one of the most pleasant memories we have to look back upon. 

It is pathetic to recall our first class baseball game, when the score was 14 — 
o, in our favor, at the end of tlie sixth inning. At the close of this inning, be- 
cause of our pity for our opponents and their disgust with themselves, their team, 
and life in general, it was mutually agreed to call off the game. Before closing 
the account of our Freshman year, it is very necessary to remind some of the con- 
ceited members of 1911. of the long dreary walk they once took, into the country 
in the company of several Freshmen, on a dark, starless night. 

Turning to our Sophomore year, we have a vision of "Wiggie" and W'eigle 
being deposited, about midnight, somewhere in the wilds of the "Sad mountains," 
far from dear old Annville. Upon discovering his situation W'eigle was right- 
eously indignant, and in his heart threatened vengeance on every member of 
19 1 2. But he saw his anger had been aroused all in vain, and he spent the night 
in peaceful, solitary slumber. In the morning when the timid natives inquired 
of him, "How did you get here?" he replied in his most grandiloquent manner, 
"By a circuitous route." 

We won in the poster scrap that year, and many attractive posters graced the 
numerous buildings in this vicinity. The final picture I wish to show you for 
this year, is, a great crowd of eager, excited faces peeping down from their safe 
retreat on top of the "Ad" building, at the crowd of students gathered on the 
campus beneath them. Lowering majestically above the group on the roof float- 
ed the beautiful Purple and Gold flag of 1912. 

In our Junior year, we have devoted all our efforts toward the production of 
this book. But we decided to have at least one jolly good time before we all be- 
came dignified Seniors. It is useless to speak of the splendid feed we had. Be- 
cause of the many good things to eat, the victims of the dining hall were deprived 
of the company of several Juniors for a few days. 

May 191 2 always be dear to L. \'. C. 


Class Poem 

From the valleys bright with sunshine, 
From the hills with flowers gay; 
From the fields and from the woodland, 
Where the gentle Dryads play; 
Where the graceful, winging woodbine 

Wafted by the gentle breeze. 
Builds them arbors 'midst the trees 

That in solemn silence stand; 
From the village where in pleasures 
Swiftly sped our play hood hours, 
From the towns, from cities gleaming 
Lifting skyward lofty towers; 
Where are garnered truest treasures, — 
Human hearts from which in love 

Service to the God above 

Is ever sweetly streaming. 

Leaving those loved scenes behind us 
That have brot us joys in youth. 
We have come with these, the others, 
Seekers for eternal truth; 
Truth that will thru life remind us 

That if we would truly live, 
We must lives of service give 

To our faltering brothers. 
We have come where knowledge, calling 
To the soul that would be free. 
Offers its most precious treasure, — 
Path to glorious destiny; 
Path that in its course ne'er falling. 
Mounting upward all the way 

To the bright and perfect day, 

And life in fullest measure. 

Should you ask us why thus gladly 
Leaving all our hearts held dear. 
Leaving loved ones who adore us. 
Loyal hearts, they hid the tear — 
Hid the tear, and, smiling, sadly 
At the parting sped us on; 

Page 58 

1'. I Z A R R E 1 i) 1 2 

Now they dream while we are gone 

Of future bright, before us. 
Should you ask us and inquire 
Why the shelt'ring walls of home, 
In our heart of hearts still cherished. 
We have left, afar to roam; 
On affection's hearth the fire 
Left neglected; while the years 

Passing on, bring dower of years 
For early friendships perished. 

Should you ask us the reason, — 
In reply our hearts would speak, 
Hearts that heard in silent sorrow, 
Cries of anguish from the weak; 
In life's fair unclouded season 

Heard we cries of deepest woe 
Of those whose lives in darkness flow 

To more dark tomorrow. 
Ah, the souls of men are stricken 
With the burden of their woe. 
And they cry, those souls in anguish, — 
"Will our brothers leave us so?" 
At the call our heart beats quicken — 
We could not help but heed the call. 

Nor leave our comrades all. 

Thus in death to languish. 

Onward then, the call is ringing 
Down the vista of the years. 
The heroic spirit, hearing; 
Answers, undismayed by fears; 
Enters in the conflict singing, 

Knowing well the strife will be 
Ended soon in victory, — 

Foes all disappearing. 
There is more in life than living, 
Truth and Right are still disowned, — 
Freedom's heights are still untrod, — 
Wrong and Falsehood, still enthroned, 
'Vision guided, we are giving 
Not our lives alone, hut all 

That we cherish, at the call 

Of humanity and God.

Class History 

ACTS ARE history, not dreams. Of that institution of which there is 
nothing to be written most can be written, for the absence of facts opens 
a vast arena to the ingenuit}- of the historian. All class histories read 

like the epitaphs on the monuments of the departed dead: few are true, more are 
questionable and the most are but the dream of what might have been. 

The history of the class of 1913 is an open book which even he who runs 
may read. 

Ushered into life in celebration of the centennial of the birth of the great 
"Emancipator," adorned with the numerals which a less valorous class would 
have deemed unlucky, with a class roll of twice its numerical standard, the class 
of "Thirteen" began to astonish the world with its precocity and muscular activ- 
ity from the very beginning of existence, sweeping the "Sophs" off the earth 
with an avalanche of victories that will stand as a monument of the unconquer- 
able spirit of the class. 

The clean sweep of the Freshman year excited so much confidence that in the 
following year the Crimson and Steel dared to unfold its sacred colors before the 
battle array of a galaxy embracing everything from the class of 1914 to the class 
of 19 umpety-steen' with no discredit to its valor, discovered that it had "bit off 
more nor it could chaw." With just the sufficient quota required in the Tug of 
War, we undertook to shove the earth from under the feet of the Granite and 
Steal, and succeeded admirably in the first half If we would have had the first 
half last, this history would be different. But there was a flareback in the second 
half. The law of the majority swung the pendulum to the other side Again in 
football, where it required the whole class to make up an even eleven, excepting 
the historian who was credited with a case of "col i feet" and the co eds who were 
debarred on account of the rules of tackling, the majority ruled. There was a 
surprise. The game wasn't as much of a walkover as was expected. In this 
game the second half drew a blank. Practice made perfect here, but in the Tug 
of War it killed the practitioners. If we could have played the last half first, this 
history might be different. If, if, if. . . . 

Being very lenient, and acting under the light persuasion of the Lebanon 
Police Department, the State Constabulary, the Harrisburg Police, Fire and 
Rapid Transit Departments and the Harrisburg Ministerium, we, although ap- 
prised beforehand of the time and place, allowed the girl, and the boy, to satiate 
expectant appetites at the banquet of the "children's hour," where "clams" were 
served. The success of their strategy is attributed to the fineness of the voice, 
lungs and liver of the Press.

In niemoriatn, we lament the departure of eight of our number, called to 
other fields of duty. We were glad to have them with us. If their departure 
enhanced their welfare, we rejoice with them in their departure. But their chairs 
are vacant in our sessions. We feel and lament their absence. 

Two years have gone. It is mid -day. We entered the regions of lore in the 
early morn, in awe because tall mountains hid the land of repose, and rivers deep 
flowed before our feet unspanned. But invincible hope led the way. Mountains 
can be climbed, and no river too steep for confident feet. The forenoon of our 
college course was pleasant and mutuilly beneficial, the afternoon promises still 
greater things. What this afternoon will be will determine even the afternoon of 
our lives. We must do our best in the former, and 

When the curfew shall toll the decline of the soul 

And we pass to our heavenly weal. 
May we sink to sweet rest to abide with the blest 

Yet a thought for the Crimson and Steel. 

Sophs, Sophs, Sophs, 

O, what bubble-heads I see 
And I wouldn't think of uttering 

The thoughts that arise in me. 

O, bad for the Sophomore class, 

It celebrates only defeat. 
O, bad for the Sophomore class, 

It's only a bunch of conceit. 

And the silly Sophs go on. 

Of all things they're the worst. 
But O, for a chance to crack their heads 

And see the bubbles burst. 

Sophs, Sophs, Sophs, 

What a bunch of fools ye be. 

The boasts you make of what you've done 
Is all hot-air to me.

"'The Crimson and Steel" 

To thee, bright banner, fain would we 

A glowing tribute bring 
And to the class that loves thee best 

Due praises now would sing. 

But, as when by the ocean vast 
One stands — nor words can find 

To tell his thoughts, in vain would we 
Speak thoughts which fill our mind. 

Yet not those seawaves-mightj', strong. 

Surpass our love for thee. 
And scarcely have those breakers bold 

More dauntlessness than we. 

Whichever way we turn our eyes 

We see thee symbolized. 
The past is there — a "Crimson" dawn — 

The victories we prized. 

By gones have fled — we face "Today" 
Yet true as "Steel" we'll be. 

We have not numbers, but we are 
The "pluck" of L. V. C. 

We care not for the little lost 
But for the much we've won 

We've learned to struggle and to win 
By our own strength alone. 

Our motto is the bond which joins 

All in one common heart. 
Dissention cannot enter in 

Division ne'er will part. 

Crimson and Steel! thy ladies fair 
Love thee, and love thy name. 

Thy sons are true knights who will fight 
To raise thee into fame.

lAST COMMENCEMENT day several members of the class of iyi2 and 
___^ a few other persons gifted with more than the average allotment of fore- 
^^^ sight stirred the echoes of Engle Hall with a song entitled "Fourteen 
Will Shine Next Year." \'erily, the days of fulfilled prophecy are not over, for 
"Fourteen" did shine with a luminosity infinitely more brilliant than was expect- 
ed by her most ardent sympathizers. 

Early on the first day of the college year, realizing that we had nothing to 
fear, not even the Sophomores, we proceeded, not to some outof the way place, 
as they had done on a similar occasion, but to the Carnegie Library where we or- 
ganized as the Class of 1914 without any opposition from the Sophomores. 

The following night, while the members of a certain class of crustaceans, 
which, on account of its stupenduous stupidity resulting from a grossly exagger- 
ated state of egotism, closely resembles the lobster, were preparing what was in- 
tended for a clam stew, they fell into it themselves. However, no lives were lost. 
Those whose mammas make their habitat near the banks of the classic Quittapa- 
hilla succeeded in extricating themselves from their predicament, and in making 
their way thither with their little tales of woe. The "clams," even though they 
had been the intended victims of a cruel conspiracy, in a spirit of magnanimity, 
kindly conveyed a number of those whose mothers' advice and protection were 
close at hand to the Water Works in order that they might refresh their depressed 
spirits in the rejuvinating depths of the historic Union Canal. 

During the Fall we added two notable victories to our glorious annals; the 
Tug of War, which was so one-sided that the Sophs quit in disgust, and the foot- 
ball game, which we won by the overwhelming score of 24 — o. 

Among all our achievements there is one that will remain fresh in our mem- 
ories even though the hand of time succeeds in effacing all recollection of the rest, 
our banquet which was probably the greatest that was ever held by a class ofdear 
old L. V. C. This we celebrated at the Metropolitan Hotel in Harrisburg. In 
spite of the strenuous efforts of the Sophs to the contrary, all who had intended 
to do so participated in the festivities. Again it was demonstrated that, instead 
of the Freshmen turning out to be fools, as had been prophesied in the ill fated 
posters, the Sophomores proved that they, above all others, had first claim to the 

Lest we be accused of vain boasting, we wish to state that we realize that we 
have made many mistakes, but in spite of these, we cannot fail to feel a just sense 
ot pride as we survey the history of our first year within the immortal halls of our 
chosen Alma Mater What class would not rejoice in our victories! What in- 
stitution would not be pleased to include many of our number in its courses, and 
on its athletic teams. What body of intelligent young men and women would not 
take delight in attempting to fully realize the ideal in "Dum vivimus, vivamus."

Class Poem 

Yon have heard, no doubt, before 
Of us Freshmen "greens," galore 

At L. V. C. 
And some professor always calls 
As we flutter through the halls 

Of L. V. C. 

And our valiant colors are waved 
Where'er Sophomores we've braved 

At L V. C. 
As at foot-ball, tng of war, 
And other victories by the score 

At L. V. C. 

Only six girls in this stunning crowd 
Surely they with hearts are crowned 

Oh! L. V. C. 
There blue eyes, brown eyes, and gray eyes too 
But the gray are most beautiful they think, don't you? 

Ah! L. V. C. 

Thirty five are to be found 
■Wearing granite blue and brown 

At L. V. C. 
Tho' with several more we started 
These from our green vine have parted 

And from L. V. C. 

Surely our banquet our motto proved 
"Dum vivimus, vivamus; we're no prudes. 

We of L. V. C. 
Trust that as Sophomores we may be 
Just as true children of L. V. C. 

And now as college we're passing through 
On the dining hall fare and philosophy, too. 

Of I,. V. C. 
Our proctors and our Profs. — we'll remember them e'er 
And for Alma Mater send up a prayer 

For L. V. C.

O precious years, all too swiftly flown, 
Leaving us, teachers, Profs., or concert-singers, 
Perhaps to drill and train some pupil's heavy fingers, 
Making the scale and notes to them well known. 
How we did fret and fume when our good master, 
Worrying over our poor and miserable playing, 
Often scolded us, in this way saying — 
"Can't you learn to play a little faster?" 
Oh, despised practice! keeping us at work, 
■W^hen our companions were having lots of fun. 
When all their study hours were over, past, and done 
But we could ne'er our practice hour shirk! 
Could we to leave these halls today be glad? 
No, rather shall not our hearts be dark and sad?

While the days of May are fleeing.

Things for which our work has stood; 
Growth and beauty, truth, the good. 
The highest, only, to content.

Lifting lives to nobler height. 
Standing ever for the right 
Till we gain through service, power.

Acadeinv Historv 

N THE year 1834, as near as can be determined, there was a small pri- 
vate school near the site of John L. Savior & Son's Carriage Works on 
White Oak street. This was the beginning of the Annville Academy. 
In 1836 the school was moved to a building on Main street, which in 1858 was 
replaced by the old Academy building. In 1868 this was donated to Lebanon 
Valley College. The Academy then existed independently of the College until 
1904. At that time it was made a distinct part of the college under the name of 
Lebanon Valley Academy with Professor Spessard as its Principal. From then 
on the Academy has steadily grown under his efficient direction. In 1906 a 
scholarship of one hundred dollars in Lebanon \'alley College was first offered. 
This has been taken every year by the pupil who has had the highest grades in 
the Senior class. In 1908 the students of the Academy organized a debating 
club, which met monthly. This was the first student organization in the Aca- 
demy. The strong foot ball and baseball teams of that year testify for the spirit 
of the students. It was this same year that the Senior class first had a gradua- 
tion exercise. The class numbered twelve and showed in their commencement, 
how efficiently they had been the leaders of the Academy for that year. The 
class of 1910 numbered thirteen and proved equally capable of leading its student 
organization. Though the debating club was dropped, the Academy still existed 
as an organized body. The foot ball and the base ball teams were quite on a par 
with the year before. The year 1910 1 1 started with a great deal of spirit and a 
bright outlook. Though the Senior class numbered but seven, the entire Aca- 
demy had a larger enrollment than ever before. The first Academy basket ball 
team was started this year. With the kind help of the Principal, the base ball 
season was put on a firm financial basis and, with the hearty co operation of all 
the students, was made a success. So the Academy has gained strength from 
year to year. To those before us who helped to make it what it is, we, the pre- 
sent members, give ovir hearty thanks, and hope that in the future, Lebanon \'al- 
ley Academy may continue to grow until it has indeed made a name for itself.

Prep Poem 

We're Preps, we're Preps, who says we are not. 
Who questions that matter is off in the top. 
The Prep. Athletes have quite a name. 
Where'er they go they win great fame. 

There's a nice little youngster, an excellent maid 
Fate tried to conceal lier by naming her "Spayd." 
And there is another, "Dinny'' by name. 
He shouts all day long, "Brightbill's my aim." 

McConnel and Gibble with grave mathematical looks. 
Make believe they know the whole blamed books. 
And poor little Condran thinking it true, 
Followed their foot steps and so fell thru. 

Do you hear that kid translating — the one that is tony? 
Oh! don't you worry, she is fixed with a pony. 
That's Ruth of Palmyra and not of the dorm. 
Thank fortune! she's escaped many a storm. 

This fellow's the president, — the fellow that is fat. 
He boards at the dorm, but doesn't show that. 
We say, there're hundreds of Preps when we chat — 
We can't name them all, don t blame us for that. 

Then there's our Academy with its red and its black. 
The crown of our laurels, the pride of our hearts. 
And when we are done with Academy life, 
We'll look forward with pleasure to college strife.

Academy Troubles 

There, Mary S. don't cry, 

You're really too young, you know, 

Tho' a heartless "No " 

Can often make go 

The handsomest here below, 

But childish troubles soon pass by, 

There, Mary dear, don't cry. 

There, Helen dear, don't cry 

A dress you must wear, I know. 

And the football field 

Is hard to yield. 

And girls must be girls, I know. 

But Vassar holds all for which you sigh. 

There, Helen dear, don't cry. 

There, Sedic . don't crj'. 

You were taken up, I know. 

By a curly tress 

Too much, I guess. 

For one who would choose "just so " 

And it's hard to be in the public eye, 

There, Sedic , don't crv.

Y. W. C. A. Work 

The religious life of the girls is centered around the Y. W C A Every 
Sunday afternoon the association gathers in an informal meeting to discuss prac 
tical problems about the "How and Why" of the Cliristian life, its rewards, its 
value, and how it is attained. The object of the organization is to keep each 
girl in that close relation to Christianity which she would experience in her home; 
to make religion a vital part of herself; to help her strengthen her faith and to 
enable her to carry her religious principles into every day practical life. Regular 
Bible and Missions studies classes are conducted under Ihe direction of a capable 
teacher where the problems met in the spread of the Gospel during former ages as 
well as those to be solved at the present day are discussed. A reading circle is a 
new feature of our V. W. C. A. The girls meet an hour at a time in our new as- 
sociation room to study the life of some woman who has lived a useful and bene- 
ficial life. We have found this a very profitable past-time. Another privilege 
which our Y. W. C. A. enjoys is that of sending delegates to the Summer Con- 
ference held at Granville, Ohio. Miss La\'erne Keister and Miss Carrie Light 
represented the association last year.

Y. M. C. A. Work 

The religions life of the boys is entirely in the care of the Stmient Young 
Men's Christian Association whose efficiency has long since been proved as a fac- 
tor in college life. When students leave home there is a tendency to put 
aside thoughts of religion in the hurry and scuffle of college work. To oppose 
such tendencies the V. M C. A steps in with its weekly praxernieetings. Bible 
Classes and Classes in Missions, making of its men more earnest Christians, and 
cultivates in them a desire for unselfish service to mankind, and gives to the 
church its portion of college men. 

We regret that during the past year our work has not progressed as well as 
usual, responsibility for which can be placed at no one's door, but is due to the 
absence of a large number of our boys from school over Sunday, leaving a very 
few to carry on the work. 

Ihiabated has been the work among the Italian c|uarrynien of AnnviUe, and 
the results have been most gratifying even though at an enormous sacrifice of 
time to those carrying on the work. During the last summer the Association 
sent four delegates to Northfield who returned laden with the fruits of that great 
convention, and three delegates were sent to the annual State Convention at West 
Chester in Februarv.

During the past year a Prohibition League was organized with twenty-six 
charter members. The purpose of the league is to promote a broad and practical 
study of the liquor prol)lem and related social and political questions, to advance 
the political application of the principles of prohibition, and to secure the enlist- 
ment of students for service and leadership in the overthrow of the liquor traffic. 
To further this object the league has planned for an annual oratorical contest, 
which, this year was held in the Engle Conservatory of Music.

Rev. Doctor Daniel Eberly 

Lebanon Valley College will long cherish the memory of Rev. Daniel Eberly, 
D. D., who passed away July 9, 1910, at his home in Hanover, Pa. 

Dr. Eberly was a scholarly gentleman, an able theologian, an eloquent or- 
ator, and a historian of remarkable ability. He was eminently successful as a 
minister, college professor, and college president. He was a man of great vi- 
tality, a clear thinker, logical reasoner, and delighted in preaching the Word. He 
loved the church of his choice, and to the Church he gave his life, labors, and 
most all of his wealth was left to bless her institutions. 

He was born near Shiremanstown, Pa., April 22, 1834. During his boy- 
hood he worked on the farm and attended the public schools. January i, 1852, 
he started to attend college at Mt. Pleasant, Westmoreland County, Pa., and later 
entered Otterbein University, Ohio, from which he graduated with the degree of 
A. B. in 1858. He then pursued special studies in Brown Universit3', at Provi- 
dence, Rhode Island, in the collegiate year 1855 56. He recited in the class of 
Intellectual Philosophy in which Richard Olney, ex-Secretary of State, was his 
classmate, and in the class in Logic, Rhetoric, and English Literature, in which 
the late John Hay, Secretary of State, was a classmate. 

He became a member of the Pennsylvania Conference at Mechanicsburg in 
1859, and served as pastor of a number of charges in Pennsylvania and Maryland 
very acceptably. Dr. Eberly was president of Cottage Hill Female College, 
York. Pa., from 1865 to 1S72. In the latter year he was elected president of Ot- 
terbein University, Ohio. He served long enough to graduate one class and then 
resigned because of his interests in the I^ast. From 1876 to 1884 he was profes- 
sor of Latin Language and Literature in Lebanon A'alley College, when he re- 
signed owing to the death of his wife. 

He was married to Miss Josephine, daughter of William Bittinger, of Ab- 
bottstown. Pa. She died July 28, 1884. After the death of his wife, he retired 
from the regular work, but was active up to the time of his death. 

He preached almost every Sunday, lectured frequently, and ser^'ed as 
lecturer on the Philosophy of History in Lebanon \'alley College. He was one 
of the three commissioners to erect the battle monument at Hanover, dedicated 
in 1905, Governor Pennypacker and Col. John P. Wilson, being his associates. 

He served in the Union Army during a part of the Civil War, was Chaplain 
of the Eighth Regiment Pennsylvania Guards, since 1875, and Ranking Chaplain 
since 1906. 

The death of Dr. Eberly brought to Lebanon \'alley College, by will, his 
own and that of others, two farms and the residue of his estate, which are worth 
between forty and fifty thousand dollars. The farm near Shiremanstown is given 
for the endowment of the Latin Chair, to be called the Josephine Bittinger Eberlj' 

A?-*? ^JS 

Professorship of Latin Language|aiid Literature. The proceeds of the other farm, 
Ujcated near Hanover, are designed to aid indigent students. The interest of the 
fund, to be created by the investment of the residue of his estate and to be called 
the Daniel Eberly Fund, is to be loaned to students without interest, and when 
the loan is returned this is to be added to the principal. Thus the name of Dr. 
Eberly will be linked witn the future work of Lebanon \'alley College. The man 
who a teacher, a trustee, an officer of the Board, a life-long friend and patron 
of tiie school, has perpetuated his influence by his generous gift. His well plan 
ned monument lias been reared among the living.

"Well, Jack, are you homesick again?" asked Tom, teasingly, as he entered 
the room. "I declare, I don't see how you can possibly think of being home- 
sick, when you always look so cozy and comfortable." 

"Oh, Tom, I'm used to your sarcasm," drawled Jack, from his retreat by 
the fireside, where he had remained motionless until now. Then he leisurely 
withdrew his feet from their resting place, on top of the fire screen, threw a cush- 
ion aside, and after a few vigorous puffs on his pipe, turned toward Tom, not 
smiling, only trying to smile, and said slowly, "I hope you don't find me selfish 
in trying to make myself comfortable, for that is about the only satisfaction I ev- 
er get, and I confess Tom, I am homesick. It's different with you; you know 
lots of people here, but I don't, and it's dreadfully lonely for me. Sometimes, 
Tom, just the sight of these big buildings and numerous chimneys makes me so 
blue, I feel like leaving this city forever." 

"The only people I do know, are those I meet in my classes, and you know 
in what a stiff, frigid sort of way, you get to know people in that manner. But 
what I miss most, Tom, is having somebody around that I knew when I was a 
child, — nobody to talk about those days when I had such a glorious time as lead- 
er of 'The Jesse James Gang' and in 'The Only Real Wild West Show.' " 

"Stop, Jack, " interrupted Tom, "don't become sentimental about that sort 
of rubbish, for I have the real thing here. O, that I could get you started and I 
wanted to know if you were really homesick or just lazy. But I believe your sad 
tale, now. Jack, and I have a sure cure for you" 

"Let's have it, Tom," cried Jack eagerly, with the first real display of energy 
he had shown since their talk began. 

Immediately Tom assumed a dreamy pose, sat gazing into the fire, and said 
slowly, — "This morning in class, while listening to one of Dr. Lorant's lectures, 
I began talking to the girl who sat next me, just in that stiff, frigid way, you do 
in class-rooms. Jack." 

Jack smiled, his only response to the statement 

"She told me," continued Tom, "that she did not like her work here, in 
fact, I don't think she cares much for studying. She told me the greatest piece 
of news, something entirely new to me, Jack. It was this: 'There is no place like 
the West.'" 

Jack laughed heartily. He was becoming more and more interested in his 
friend's story. 

"I told her," Tom continued, "that I heard that same information at home 
pretty frequently, for my room-mate was from Oregon. Say, Jack, I wish you 
could have seen those big gray eyes sparkle, and the queerest sort of longing in 
them, and I thought to myself, I guess you are homesick, too. She is rather 
pretty. Jack, and, — " turning quickly toward him, "and she knows you. Jack." 

"Tom, you scoundrel, why couldn't you tell me this first?" burst out Jack, 
"Who is she? Where is she? Where does she live? When did she come here? 
What does she look like? When did she know me? Quick! Answer me. 
Quick!" commanded Jack. 

"Gee, I never thought you could move so rapidly," declared Tom. "Here, 
she said I should give you this, and if you were the same old Jack Burnett she 
knew in those good old kid days, you would surely remember her." 

Jack snatched the piece of paper wildly from Tom's hand and read, "Peggy 
Drenton, " then her address. He gave one long whoop, and then jumped about 
the room frantically waving the little scrap of paper, while Tom looked on, 
amused and astonished. 

"Tom, I've known this girl ever since we were just little tots," exclaimed 
Jack, wildly delighted. "I went to the kindergarten with her, and we were in 
the same classes at school, but just when I entered High School, she came East 
to live with an aunt. I knew she lived in New York, somewhere, and I don't 
possibly see, how I could have forgotten to ask about her, when I knew I was 
coming here. I'm going to her at once." And Jack began to dress very hastily, 
all the while keeping up a volley of questions. "You say she is pretty, Tom? Is 
her hair curly? It was when she was a youngster. She certainly does have 
pretty eyes, doesn't she?" 

Suddenly, Jack became quiet again, and Tom, very much amused, turned 
with an inquiring glance, to ask, in a tantalizing way, "Why so pensive, fair 

"I was only thinking of the last time we met, Tom", replied Jack, very 
soberly, — " It was at the station. She was leaving, and just as her train pulled 
in, we clasped hands, vowing to each other, by all that was holy, that we would 
never care for any one else, as we cared for each other. And — ", winking slyly 
at Tom, Jack added, "Girls have been chasing along, since then, one right after 
another, to find a place in my heart." 

"I never thought that you were so vain nor so fickle. Jack," Tom answered, 
with a very serious expression on his usually cheerful face. 

Jack was too much excited to detect Tom's teasing amusement. "Tom", 
he replied warmly, "don't you know those kid affairs, never last. It was just 
'puppy love.' We wrote to each other for a little while but didn't keep it up 
long. I've never heard much about her since. And to think I'll see her again 
to-night! Well, so long, old man, — Oh! Thanks, Tom, for all this. I almost 
forgot that it's all through you, I'm to have this unexpected pleasure. Well I'll 
take you around to see her later. And I can't tell you how grateful I am to you. 
Goodbye, Tom." 

"Goodbye, Jack." Then the door slammed, and Tom muttered as he looked 
into the fire. "Goodbye to homesickness, too, I think." 

Tom could readily understand, when he learned to know Miss Drenton, how 
she captivated Jack with her vivacity and merry wit. He realized, too, how 

very imicli this friendship meant tu them, because both were away from home, 
both were lonely, and above all, they had known each other, since early child- 
hood. He realized it all, and — , at the bottom of his heart, he was not glad. 

As the winter passed, Tom gradually saw less of Jack, who spent much of 
his time with Peggy He was happier now than Tom had ever seen him, so 
happy that Tom never could obtain much comfort or attention from him, when 
he complained teasingly, of Jack's desertit>n of him. 

One evening, early in the spring, upon entering their room, Tom found Jack 
sitting biside the tible, intensely interested in some object he was examining un. 
der the lamp. He was startled at first and looked guiltily at Tom, then called 
him to come and look at the solitaire he was going to give Peggy that evening. 

Tom laughed, "Oh, I expected it. Jack." 

But Jack did not seem to be listening. He was looking at the ring. After a 
while, a long while, he asked, musingly, "Tom, do you remember, long ago, the 
night we first talked of Peggy, your telling me that I was fickle." 

"Yes." answered Tom, carelessly. 

"Well, I guess you were right," continued Jack, "I am." "To think, to 
think that I might iiave missed all this — the best thing I ever had. It was really 
merely luck that I ever happened to meet her again That wasn't only 'puppy 
love,' Tom, I know it now. I was a fool to ever let myself forget her for a min- 
ute. Why, Tom. I don't see what I would do in this world, if it wasn't for Peg- 
gy Drenton." 

Tom looked at tlie earnest, manly face before him He thought of the 
months and months that Jack had worked away, lonely and discouraged before 
Peggy came; he thought of the faithful work Jack had done during the last few 
months, was doing still, in moments, in hours, snatched against inclination and 
P^ggy pleading, from pleasure. "Fickle!" he had almcst spckt n the word aloud. 
Then a picture of Peggy arose before him, pretty, laughing, friendly Peggy. 
He heard her light hearted chatter, he saw the frown and pout cloud the charm- 
ing face when a wish was denied; he saw her as he had seen her once or twice 
with other men, when Jack could not attend her wishes. Peggy knew so many 
other men, while Jack seemed scarcely to have or care to have another acquaint- 
ance in New York. And with each of the others Peggy seemed just the same, — 
warm hearted, eager, responsive, intimate, and so unfailingly fascinating. Tom 
looked at Jack and sighed. And Jack sighed too, as he looked up. 

"Tom, she's going back to Oregon tomorrow, and Ishall be so lonely then." 
Again there was silence. Then Jack said with a grave face, "But think how 
lonely I should have been all my life, and would never have known it, had we 
never met again! Now, whatever happens, it's — unless — Tom, should you ever 
quite trust yourself if you had been fickle once? It seems the most impossible 
thing in the world tome that I coirld ever change towards Peggy now." 

Perhaps Torn pondered the question sometimes; perhaps he had little time 
for pondering in the rush of weeks that followed. He saw Jack happy over an 
Oregon postmark, very often at first, now and then, later on. 

And somehow the days flew away till it was summer and they had f)arted, 
and again till the summer was gone and September had come once more. And 
with it Tom came bounding into the room, heavily tanned and full of life and 
energy, more anxious than usual to begin his studies. He was surprised to find 
that Jack had become a ver\' serious fellow, and noticed at once that he seemed 
older, and was not so jovial and careless as formerly. Something about Jack 
checked Tom's eager flow of speech. He watched Jack closely, as they were 
fixing up their room, and his first remark for many minutes was uttered with a 
sigh of relief when he at last saw Jack bring forth a picture of Peggy Drenton 
from his trunk Of all the dozens of likenesses of her, which had adorned the 
room the spring before, this was the first, as it also chanced to be the last that 
appeared that fall. 

"How is Peggy," inquired Tom, eagerly. \'ery listlessly. Jack answered, 
"I've just received a paper from home, Tom, in which her engagement to some 
man out there — I forgot to tell you that my brother, who is working for the State 
Forestry Department is located in our home town. He wrote me that this chap 
was not of much account, and I do hope for her sake that their engagement will 
be broken off Tom, you know she is too fine a girl to waste herlifewith a man 
who isn't worthy of her, as my brother seems to feel is the case here 

There was a wistful yearning in Jack's voice and face as bespoke and a ten- 
der lingering over the words — for her sake — when he expressed the hope that the 
engagement would be broken. 

After that day Tom nor Jack mentioned Peggy's name for months. But 
when the boys met after the Christmas vacation. Jack greeted Tom more cheer- 
fully and abruptly, "I've had good news, Tom. My brother wrote to me, and 
said that he sees Peggy Drenton quite frequently when he is in town, and that 
she has broken her engagement with the man I told you about. He said she 
seems very happy, and my brother was relieved to know that she had given up 
this man." There was a moment's silence. Then Jack added wistfully, "I'm 
so glad, Tom, for her sake." 

And Tom replied simply and sincerely, "I'm glad to hear that, Jack." But 
he thought to himself, "I'm glad you won't have a chance to see her now, 

Then time swept on again. Tom was happy to see Jack applying himself to 
his work more diligently than he had done in the beginning of the year, going out 
more frequently in the evenings, and rapidly regaining his happy, cheerful dis- 

By the next autumn, the boys were closer chums than ever, for they became 
more congenial, since they had so many mutual friends and interests. 

One evening, after a brisk October da\', Tom came whistling up the stairs, 
opened the door of their room, and then gasped in amazement. There sat Jack 
by the fire while the rest of the room was utterly dark. He was not lounging as 
usual in his careless manner, but with one elbow propped on his knee and his 

chin resting on his clinched fists: from the other hand, hanging down limply be- 
side his chair, a long sheet of business paper, closely written upon, reached to 
the floor. Jack did not move, but when Tom closed the door he turned toward 
him slowly, and in a hollow voice said, "Hello, Tom 

After Tom had turned on the lights. Jack brightened up a little, and rising, 
said, "Oh! it's nothing, Tom Don't worry I'm just stunned. " He returned 
to his seat by the fire and g.ized into it quietly for a few moments, then turning 
around abruptly, he said, "I've just had a letter from my brother, Tom, and I 
guess you had better read it. You will understand it " Handling Tom the let- 
ter he walked over to the window. It seemed to him that he had been looking 
out over the roofs and yards for an hour. Somehow or other tlie sights of this 
big city did not have the power now, to depress his spirits, and make him feel 
lonely, as it certainly did, long ago. Yes, he remembered, particularly, how 
lonely he had been on the night, when he first met Peggy here. Just then Tom's 
voice sounding, startled him. 

"Jack," called Tom. 

"Yes. " 

"I've read it" 

Jack walked over to the fireplace, pulled a chair near Tom's and sat down. 
It was a long time before either spike At last Jack said, "Tom. I am not broken 
up about this, as you ima>fine I am Indeetl I am glad I won't try to conceal 
the fact that it hurt at first, but I've received that letter two hours ago, and I've 
been sitting here ever since, thinking it over." 

"So your brother is going to marry Peggy," Tom asked pensively. "I am 
so glad he is so happy and I'm so glad for her sake," and he shot a quick glance 
at Jack, but Jack was watching the fire. "It's hard luck, old man, but I under-

"The only thing that strikes me as queer, now, is that this old flame of mine 
is to be my sister," Jack said, with a suspicion of a smile. "I'll bet she hasn't 
forgotten me either," he continued. "I wonder, Tom," but he interrupted his 
statement when he looked at Tom's face. I'he expression there he could not in- 
terpret at first, but a little later, he said, "Why, Tom, I believe you are glad." 

"Never mind." snapped Tom "What are you wondering about?" 

"Oh, I was wondering if " he gazed into the fire again, and was lost 

in reminiscences, while Tom wondered if they were regretful ones. 

At last Jack completed his silence. "I wonder — I wonder if — if my brother 
will ever be disappointed in Peggy. He's a splendid fellow, that brother of mine, 
Tom . ' ' 

Suddenly the clock on the mantel began to strike eight, and Jack, rousing 
himself very quickly, cried, "Tom, I almost forgot, I promised to go to a dance 
tonight." C. E. H. '12

Why do we love the Preps so well? 
The secret we will gladly tell, — 
Their innocence, their child-like ways 
Cause all the Profs to sound their praise. 
They're unsophisticated, quite; 
They always stay at home at night. 
And always have their lessons right, — 
We love them, for they are so bright. 

The Freshmen's claim upon our love 

Is that they strive for things above. 

They think not of the tasks they've done. 

But serving others is their fun. 

To our bonfires they brot the wood, 

As loyal P'reshraen should: 

By the upper classmen nobly stood, — 

We love them, for they are so good. 

The Sophomores are always true: 
We honor them and love them too. 
Have they not battled bravelv on 
When every blessed hope was gone? 
Tho' fierce the strife, enduring long, 
Yet, still they sing their cheery song: 
They've ne'er succumbed to right or wrong, — 
We love them, for they are so strong. 

The dear old Seniors, bless them all! 
We adore them, great and small. 
Their Alma Mater's strongest stay , — 
Will she live on when they're away? 
The inspiration of the weak; 
Encouragement to us they speak, 
And never for self-advancement seek, — 
We love them, for they are so meek. 

But oh, the girls 'if the Junior class! 
We love e.icli merry winsome lass. 
They are, 'tis very clear to me, 
The dearest pride of L. V. C. 
I cannot all their charms repeat, 
True-hearted girls without deceit: 
Perfection's masterpiece complete, — 
We love them, for no one could help it

A Sophomore Heiuiiiisi-eiice 

Even a stranger on the campus that Monday afternoon could have seen that 
something unusual was going on, and so there was. A large crowd of people 
had surrounded the "Ad" building — boys without hats or coats were running 
back and fortii with no apparent purpose — girls stood breathless and excited but 
all, with an intense fixed gaze, looked steadily upward 

Kverything was silence and had been so for several minutes when six forms 
suddenly appeared on theroof of the building with a loud shout of victory. The 
way in which they gatliered around the flagstaff showed too well that they were 
supporters of the colors that waved from its top — the royal purple and goUl 
Imagine the disappointment and chagrin on the faces of some of the onlookers 
when they realized the full significance of the scene. They saw in a wink that 
the "Sophs" had not only removed their boasting Freshmaii pennant but had re- 
placed it with a big green banner waving at half mast 

Such indignity could not be borne without protest. Soon a shot was fired 
at the teasing green, but all in vain The banner held its own. The only reply 
from the roof came from the belfry in "twelve" loud, reverberating strokes. This 
caused general consternation. Was there fire? Had the cook resigned or was it 
something worse? The President and the Dean appeared on the fire escapes in- 
stantly. One glance was enough to tell them that the biggest class scrap of the 
year was impending. The Dead got busy and a dramatic reverse necessarily fol- 
lovi'ed. The "Sophs" being assured of the victory, soon descended from the roof 
by the same dangerous ladder by which a short while before they had mounted so 
stealthily. A council of war was summoned which meant that the scrap was 
over for the boys that day — but not so for the girls. 

At this time there was an equal number of Freshmen and Sophomore girls 
rooming in the "dorm. " Class spirit ran high among them — so much so that 
the "freshies" objected to the long green streamers with which the Sophomores 
had so generously decorated their windows. They liked popularity all right, but 
they objected to the "shade. " If any person had noticed, it would have been 
amusing to see those girls dash across the campus to the "dorm," when they 
caught sight of the decorations. It would have been thrilling, too, to watch 
those same careless girls, even at the risk of their lives, climb along the edge of 
the wall to pull down a few innocent pieces of green paper. They felt relieved, 
however, and began to plan revenge. A room on the third floor was their retreat 
and that is where they were found some time later by the infuriated Sophs. 

There was no denying it, — the cool, composed Sophs at last were mad and 
they had a right to be. They had just returned to their rooms to talk over their 
unexpected victory when suddenly some one noticed that all their class pennants 

15 I Z A K R K 1 1) 1 2 

were gone. None but those audacious "Fresh" girls could have done such a 
trick and the spirit of our girls rose to the occasion. It didn't take them long 
to decide what to do nor to find their scheming enemies in that fated third- floor 
room . 

Immediately all the wash lines and stray ropes from the laundry were hurried 
to the upper story. It was but the work of a minute to rope in the prisoners. 
But it took them longer than that to discover their imprisonment. When they 
did, however, it was great sport to see the palefaced frightened things sliding 
down from their cell on sheets and blankets to the balcony below. The most 
daring one made a sudden sally through the open window of one of the second 
floor rooms. The occupant fortunately took campassion on the "poor baby" 
and let her out into the hall. 

A triumphant look expressed her delight in her freedom thus easily won, 
but it changed suddenly when she was "nabbed" by the wih' Sophs. She was 
taken to the Sophomore rooms with the promise that she would be kept until she 
assured a speedy return of the stolen pennants. She refused naturally enough, 
but, in doing so she misjudged her captors. They were relentless and war seem- 
ed only to have begun. 

Meanwhile her sisters stood on the balcony paralyzed with astonishment, 
afraid to come to her assistance. Their class brothers — "the dear boys" were 
attracted by the gloomy sight and stood gaping up at them — a helpless, hope- 
less bunch. We do not know how long this might have lasted, had not the 
gathering shades of evening called them to their sense of duty. 

The girls rallied and made an attack upon the room where their unfortunate 
sister was held. It failed as did all others. They could not rescue the poor girl. 
A compromise was inevitable. They had to give upthose 191 2 pennants to which 
they clung so earnestly. 

Those pennants again filled their old places on the wall, unconscious of the 
fuss they once caused. But we never look at them without thinking how much 
livelier it is to be on the inside track of a class scrap than on the side lines, the 
usual place for pennants and girls. 

Maud MiiUer on a summer day 
kaked the meadow sweet with hay. 
You'd hardly expect a girl, you know. 
In summer-time to be shoveling snow.

Have any stray hairs got mixed with the butter? 

If there have, take them out, without making a sputter. 

Never mind how things taste, but heartily say, 

"L. V. Grub is finest! We're dining today!" 

We're dining! We're dining! Who says, "It's great sport?" 
You're tipsy, young Freshman, rations are short. 
Buckwheat cakes for breakfast? — Yes, hot if you please: 
Where the cakes are the thickest, there's nothing can freeze. 

Was it cakes that I spoke of? Excuse the mistake! 
Look close and you'll not see a sign of a cake. 
Cakes here at the College? Yes, sinkers no doubt. 
If you board at the College, you'll never get gout. 

We've a trick — we young students, you doubtless have heard 

Of calling our food by names most absurd. 

That dish is the "Doggies," and that is the "Dope." 

'Tis a horrible diet, — of course, we've lost hope. 

That dish is the "Bullets," — the one on the right: 

Oh, dear! they are hard! Will you have one tonight? 

That's our "Crisp Breakfast Cereal." We call it the "Chaff." 

That's the "Cream." Have another dish? Don't make me laugh. 

That dish with the "Macaroni — Tomatoish" look 
Is one that is made by our clever new cook. 
And the students think it a pretty good stew, 
And gobble it down; a good joke it is, too. 

That dish, we think, is intended to dope. 
They try to conceal it by naming it soup. 
Two beans, some cabbage, one small green pea, 
Just look in the bowl, that's all you can see. 

You see that "Duke's Mixture? " That's made out of bread. 
It's the principal diet, on which we are fed. 
The cooks as they make it grow tired I 11 admit, 
But the students who eat it have nearly a fit.

Yes, we're dining! Always using our forks and spoons, 
And I sometimes have asked, will we always eat prunes? 
Will we always be dealt out a plum or a pear 
Till the last hungry student goes 'way in despair? 

Now here's to our dining hall. Let's give a cheer! 
For in spite of it all, we still hold it dear 
And though we may jest and grumble and fret, 
When we leave the old hall, it will be with regret.

"The Hypnotic Stunt" 

One cool September evening a number of boys met in room seventeen to wit- 
ness an experiment. The room was crowded with students from every class, and 
the shaded lamp cast its feeble rays upon the faces of the subject and the oper- 
ator. After cautioning the men to remain quiet, and explaining the nature of the 
experiment, the operator proceeded to make passes over the eyes of the subject. 
At first they were downward, long and sweeping, extending from head to foot, 
accompanied by droll words suggesting sleep. 

Meanwhile the experimenter directed his gaze intently toward the left eye of 
the victim. The effect of which was to produce a few spasmodic contractions of 
the muscles. Every eye was now fixed upon the subject. He soon began to 
breathe deeply, then gradually to relax his muscles and finally, after a few more 
passes had been made, the subject appeared to be under control. 

"Slack," for that was the name of the unfortunate victim, was induced to 
perform a number of curious antics for the amusement of the crowd. Silence 
reigned supreme as he caught imaginary fish with a broom stick. His arm be- 
came rigid in response to a command from " Donnerblitzen. " He ate imaginary 
fruit and candy with a relish. To the uninitiated. Slack was apparently hypnotized 
and the experiment would have ended in a few moments. Suddenly, however, a 
noise was made, which produced a remarkable effect upon "Slack," ior he in- 
stantly became violent, tearing his clothes into shreds and falling to the floor un- 
manageable. A panic siezed the crowd. Each one sought to escape as soon as 
possible. Some dived headlong through the open windows. Others rushed pell- 
mell through the now open door, and there remained but a few to hold the strug- 
gling man With a mighty leap he escaped from custody and fled down the cor- 
ridor, pursuing the terrified lads. "Slack," finally, ?ank to the ground exhaust- 
ed. Some called for a doctor, others for a rope, and still a few others for sarsa- 
parilla. In a few minutes Freshmen and "Preps" were hurrying in all direc- 
tions for restoratives and aid. 


BIZARRE 1!)12 

"Donuerblitzen!" "Doniierblitzen! " came from a dozen anxious, terrified 
men. "Can't you take him out of it?" yelled Hayes. But no where was 
"Donnerblitzen" to be found. During this tumult "Slack" became violent once 
more. After again escaping from his captors, he began yelling "Blondy." "Let 
me at him," he cried. Poor "Blondy," terror-stricken, ran like a man possessed. 
He fell down the stairs in his eagerness to escape, but he scrambled to his feet, 
and resumed his mad pace with "The Villan still pursuing." They were soon 
out upon the campus, each one yelling as though the "Devil" himself were chas- 
ing them. Their combined cries soon awakened the village folks. P'rom all 
sides crowds of sleepy villagers came streaming in upon the newly mown grass. 
After hours of awful suspense and fearful excitement, "Slack" was finally lasso- 
ed with Titus' trunk rope. 

It required the united efforts of both the students and the villagers, who assis- 
ted in the capture, to bind him hand and foot and they carried the torn, tattered 
and now helpless form into the dormitory. They then laid him on Brunner's cot. 

He raved and he tore, 
And he fell upon the floor. 

Many hours later the moonlight revealed the stealthly figures of panic- 
stricken youths, as they crept noiselessly into the dormitory. One by one they 
were seen approaching their rooms. First, Hayes; then Botts, aud soon follow- 
ed Shannon and "Blondy." But where were the other two? Did they succumb 
to the terrors of the night? No, for the first peep of day saw Landis descending 
the fire escape from the roof, and Feldman departing from the forbidden precincts 
of the Ladies' Hall where he had spent the night on the parlor sofa. 

Thus, ended our first, last and only experiment in the mysterious realm of 



Four long years they struggled. 
Scraped and scrambled through the course. 
But, see you! not one foot is weary. 
Each one rode through on a horse.

The Porch of the Ladies' Dorm 

I stood on the porch at midday 

When the bell was ringing for grub; 

And out of the dorm, the boys rushed 
As if they were fleeing a club. 

I saw them coming rapidly 

In groups of two and three, 
Their looks at once betraying 

I'm hungry as can be. 

And far in the hazy distance 

Came a belated boy 
Who, would he get in late for dinner 

The Preceptress he'd annoy. 

For those, who are belated, 

From the dining hall must stay 
Until the Preceptress rings the bell 

And all the students pray. 

And as those boys came rushing 

Like a herd of hungry steers, 
A flood of thoughts came o'er me 

That filled my eyes with tears. 

How often, O how often, 

In days that had gone by, 
I had stood on that porch at midday 

And watched them come for pie. 

How often, O, how often, 

I had wished for grub that's good; 

Something tasty and delicious 
That we might class as food. 

For I used to grow hungry 

As time for meals came round 
And longed for something Mother cooked 

Sweet, tender and well browned. 

Page 150 

BIZARRE l'.»12 

And my flesh has fallen from me 
From the eating of such stuff, 

That even to cast a shadow 
I scarcely have enough. 

So, whenever I see that company' 
Of boys both great and small, 
The odor of cheese and sphagetti 
Seems to come from the dining hall. 

And I think how many students, 

It really is a sin. 
On dear old L \" grub 

Have grown pale and thin. 

I see the long procession 

As to their meals they sneak. 

The new students, hale and hearty 
The old ones, pale and weak. 

And forever, and forever. 

As long as the school's in debt, 

As long as there's a kitchen faculty 
And maybe some years yet. 

The menu of cold beef and potatoes 
With dried peaches shall appear 

As a sign that the cooks are lazy 
And vegetables are dear. 

Sweet Mary had a little lamb. 
But, Ah! Alas for that! 
She tied its leg around its neck 
And wore it as a hat.

A Poem 

(With apologies to Milton) 
When I consider how my hat is bent — 
Full half a rod, in shape both high and wide, 
And that my eyes which 'tis a sin to hide 
Lodged therein useless, tho my soul intent — 
To charm therewith some man. I have spent 
A vast amount for birds for the outside. 
Can these their mission fill, birds that have died? 
I doubting ask. But fashion to prevent 
That murmur soon replied, "They can indeed. 
Birds were not made to sing. They best 
Fulfill their purpose that adorn some lady whose state 
Is queenly; thousands at my bidding bleed. 
Are sent o'er land and sea, far from their nest; 
Their young ones also perish as they starving wait " 



To ' 1 1 from ' 1 3 
Farewell, our true kinsmen — since you must away 
P'rom the briglit scenes behind, into life's obscure day! 
Full often we'll miss you, oft long for that cheer 
Which you have shared with us — but you'll not be here. 

Cilad spring days will come, summer breezes will blow. 
Golden autumn will linger and then winter's snow. 
And the skies will be blue as the loveliest are. 
But "set" 'mid the splendor is our "guiding star." 

Like sliips whicli sail out from the chaos of night, 
And meet in their courses, in morn's glorious liglit, — 
V\'e've friendshipped in passing. — hut now, like a dream, 
Time flo.its us away intu memory's stream. 

Yet, here's to tlie friendsiiip, liow la'-ting, how great, 
Years cannot it — nor hard cruel P'^tt-. 
Our praver fu"- the future — due thanks for past joys, 
"Dear Father — take care of Our Cousins, the bo\s.'

A dear little hat on the top of his head 

With its ribbons of white and blue

Dormitory Rejjulatioiis 

Revised for the Spri/ig 'Term 

The preceptress suggests that all spend as much time as possible in the dor- 
mitory from 12 p. m. to 6 a. m 

Evening study hours last from 7:30 to 9:30, during which time lights must 
be on in all rooms. Every one is expected to make as much noise as possible. 

The ten o'clock bell is a signal f<<r the professors to retire. All loud talking 
in the halls, consequently, ceases at 10:15. 

Permission to leave town or to spend a night away from the dormitory is 
granted to all. Faculty members in particular are requested to use this liberty. 

Walking out of in the company of young men is heartily recommended 
by the present administration. This establishes co operation among students. 

Young men may call informally at any time; formally, whenever the young 
lady sees fit. On Saturday and Sunday evenings the parlor is to be reserved tor 
steady regulars. Extras can find plenty of room in the dining- hall, day student's 
room, or on the front porch. Young men will not detain young ladies longer 
than 10:30 p. m. 

Every one is expected to attend chapel when so disposed. 

Only the steady regulars are requested to attend church at least once on Sun- 
day. Evening service at the Reformed Church is recommended. The service is 
short and the walk is beneficial. The college widows are asked to attend Y. \V. 
C. A. only. 

Xo one is expected to do any work during the spring term either within or 
without the "Ad" building, the Conservatory, or Dormitory with the exception 
of the faculty. Rest and loafing is recommended till 3 p. m. when baseball, ten- 
nis, and walking should be indulged in. 

The dormitory must be kept quiet at all t'mes, so that the mice be not dis- 

In regard to any privileges about which there is any doubt, inform the pre- 
ceptress after you have used the privilege. 



They who love, in secret should love. 

For t'is there that love most is admired; 

But the lovey-dovies that don't care where they love 

Make the public most mortally tired.

Reveals the live man, still supreme and erect."

'Twixt simple excitement and pure inspiration."

Tragedy in Four Acts 

Cram, cram, cram. 
O'er English from morn till noon, 
But I wisli that I had studied more 
To avoid a shameful doom. 

Exam, exam, exam. 

How stupid and dull I feel! 

I wish that Prof. 's back were turned 

That I with my trot might deal. 

Flunk, flunk, flunk, 

O, cruel and relentless fate! 

And I wish that father could know, 

How I cram, but 'tis now too late. 

Trunk, trunk, trunk, 

I have packed thee up at last. 

But I hate to see thee sent home thus, 

Before the school year's past.

French Prof.'s Opinion of Freshmon. 

1-^riday Moining, NLwembt'r ^, morning after Fresh i/un relurii froDi their banquet 

You are the flabbiest Freshmen class I ever saw, I've had a lot of Fresh- 
men classes, but you are absolutely the flabbiest one I ever saw. Only a couple 
turned up for class yesterday and they looked like a set of chickens that strayed 
into the wrong coop and the old hen chased theni out. You act like a set of fools 
five years old. Babies that you are! I wonder where the rest of you were yester- 
day! I wonder what you were doing! Guess you were home taking castor-oil. 
That is all you are fit for. Babies that you are! Couldn't keep a secret. Whis- 
pered it all around so that every one in the college knew when and where you 
were going and didn't think it worth while to get after you. They were glad 
when you were gone. When you did come into chapel you hadn't sense enough 
to come in decently, but you came in like a pack of hounds with "Mr." Harnish 
there, leading you. Brr! Brr! Brr! I have 47 of you in my class now and I 
don't want more than thirty. I am just waiting to flunk seventeen of you. You 
can just clear out of tliis. I don't want you in here at all You can just clear 
out and every one of you gets a zero. Clear out! And you want to come on 
Monday morning knowing your lesson. Now remember! If you come up here 
again and know nothing you can just clear out and you need not come back again 
either. Now mind! Clear out! I mean it! Go, you little imps! ! ! ! ? ? ? 

Spoonors' Cluh 

Lebanon \'alley prides itself on its many institutions and rightly so, for 
they are manv and greit. The one in which most of us are interested — because 
of our experience, of course,-— is the Spooners' Club. It is the most thoroughly 
organized as well as the most popular club around the school. Every one be- 
longs to it at some time or other and some of the people all the time — or if they 
don't, it is not their fault Its thorougli organization is a natural outgrowth of 
the way in which the work of the club is a carried on. Everything is assigned 
to committees consisting in all "cases" of only two The group system — when 
a group means two without a ciiaperon — has been adopted as the best method to 
insure success. Meetiuj^s are held at all such hours when the members are not 
a.-tively engaged in class work. Sociology excepted Here the hour and the sub- 
ject lends itself so well to the practices of this club that its members indulge in 
them even at the risk of being discovered by the Dean Time spent in this way

is not lost as some of our Profs and parents seem to think — full credit for the 
work is given under tlie regular campus c(juise. For further particulars as to 
the credits, etc . see Pri.f W . Albert Hruniier, A. B. head of the department. 
The club has no regular meeting places with the exception (jf tlie Ladies' parlor 
on Siturday evening from eight to ten o'clock, the da\' students' room, alcoves in 
the library. Miss Brown's 'practice" roorn, an 1 the society halls have been found 
exceptionally favorable. As the latter named places are constantly in use, applica- 
tions for tlieiii must be Inn led in early to th; obliging nianager Josiah Reed. In 
the spring such out-door places like Lover's Retreat, Lo\'er's Leap and the Water 
Cress Pond are most enjoyed and sought afltr In fact any place may be used as 
long as the Preceptress does not get "wise" and object After the appearance 
of the same couple at tvvo successive star cour.^es they are admitted into the club. 
The order of conducting a session is a secret which the members will not tell. 
Each person is invited and urged to find out for himself or herself and to gain as 
much experience as possible. 

If two rosy lips were upturned to your own, 
With a velvety softness about them, 
Would you pray for endurance to let them alone? 
Well, maybe you would, but I doubt it 

If a sly little hand you were permitted to sieze. 

With a wonderful softness about it. 

Do you think that you could drop it with never a squeeze? 

Maybe you would, but I doubt it. 

If a tapering waist were in reach of your arm. 
With a wonderful plumpness about it. 
Would you argue whether right or wrong? 
Maybe y(Hi would, but I doubt it. 

I^istt'ii t«) This 

Koontz — "Rodes, what is your idea of the secret of happiness?' ' 

Rodes — "Embrace your opportunity. " 

Carrie Light — "I recall that the lecturer the other night said that 'intensity of 

feeling and moderation of action' was the secret of happiness." 
Koontz — "Is your idea opposed to that of Rodes? " 
Miss Light — "No, I think you ought apply the latter to the former." 
Koontz — "The secret of happiness is then 'Embrace your opportunity with in- 

tensitv of feeling ami moderation ot action "

I do hereby resolve that: 
I. Athletics at L. V. C shall be discontinued. 

The only exercise at L. V. C. shall be an early morning walk and that only 

when the weather is decidedly good. 
The Death League, in so much as it exercises and develops only one side of 
the body at the expense of the other, is not even a desirable form of Ath- 
letics, and shall, therefore, be discontinued. 
I shall never misrepresent facts unless

I shall never speak loud enough to be vulgar, but just loud enough to be 

I shall never more visit the Boys' dormitory wearing a full dress suit — nay, 
not even without a rain-coat 

I shall not tolerite any student who calls me "Doc." 

I shall suspend all students who are "menaces to the peace of the dor- 

Smoking on the campus shall be strictly prohibited 

My Athletic Policy is too precious to be entrusted to mere boys. 

I shall offer Si 00 in board as a reward for the arrest and conviction of the

I shall alwavs agree with members of "my church." 

The next eleven are like unto tlie above. 

I shall always keep sweet 

I shall always be happy.

A Freshman's Letter Home. 

Lebanon \'alley College, 

i\nnville, Pa., Oct. 2, igio. 
To the loved ones at home: 

I have been at Lebanon Valley College for three long weeks. I 
have matriculated for the ministry. The ministry is a wonderful study and I 
tremble when I think what a noble profession I am at the threshold of. The 
College is located at Annville, Lebanon County, Pa. There are five big buildings 
and other outbuildings. The buildings are called respectfully: the ads building, 
the conversatory, the Carnackie library, the Girl's dormitory, the Boy's dormi- 
tory and the remains of a jini. I live in the Boy's dormitory around which is a 
hill covered with tin cans, bottles, stumps, dead animals, and other articles too 
numerous too mention. When I arrived, I was sent to the office to see the boss. 
He asked me what church I belonged to and when I told him he said "Why, you 
belong to the same church I do. " I tell you what that made me feel good. I 
have several professors and some of them are quite good. Prof. Shenk is 
the dean, and he is a good fellow. He teaches history, and has told the same 
jokes three times already. Professor Lehman teaches Algebra and he is a grand 
old man. Professor Wanner teaches Chemistry. He knows all about it and 
when he asks me a question I feel like the middle part of a doughnut. Prof. Derry 
he teaches Biology and kills all kinds of animals. Proftssor Schroyer teaches 
the Bible always keeping his eyes on the book. Miss Dodge she teaches French 
and I dont like her for a little bit. She nearly scared me to death the first day. 
Miss Schleichter teaches dutch. I try to keep on the good side of her for she takes 
care of the girls. They say Miss Parks teaches english. We havent recited un- 
der her yet as she spent all the time in assigning lessons. But the Lord help us 
if we ever have to recite them 

Your obedient son, 

P. S. — I have joined the Y ^L C. A Please send me >io at once. 

A Logical Coiiclusioii 

Prof. Shen'K — (Philosophy 4) — "False is that which does not correspond to any- 
Earl Spessard — "Brunner. you are false, therefore — ." 

Edith Gingrich (when asked to sing her favorite song in society) — sings — "Oh, 
where is ;«j' wandering boy to night."

If to treasure each word you say, dear. 

And to know you're my heart's delight. 

If to wish you near with your sweet eyes clear,

If to do all this, is to love you, dear, 

Then I love you."

Home again But was it home? This is what I thuuglit as I stood on 
the lawn in front of my Euclid Avenue mansion, gazing into the mysterious skv, 
wondering whether the Gods of fate would always decree against me. I had just 
returned from a long and tiresome search after work, and meeting with the same 
luck as before, I scarcely had courage to enter the house and face my wife. 
Darling angel of optimism! she always saw the siher lining of every cloud of 
adversity, when all Icould discern was blackness of the darkest hue. Finally, I 

entered and found Mrs seated comfortably before the open fire place, 

watching the embers slowly dying away. This added more to my uneasiness, 
and I was about to relate my experiences of the day to her when the porter en- 
tered the room with a telegram. Hastily tearing the seal, I could scarcelv be- 
lieve my eyes, for if this message were true a position for me would be a reality 
at last. I read aloud, "Have been appointed on U. S. G. S. Be at wharf Thurs- 
day io:ioa. m , Lusitania. Sail for continent. " Signed W. E K 

This seemed too good to be true for this position would not only afford me 
the means of financing my long and sadly neglected household, but it would give 
me an opportunity to see my old classmates, the class of 191 2, most of whom I 
had not seen nor heard from since graduation, and who I knew were scattered 
over the entire globe. 

Thursday morning arrived. With a glad but yet sorrowful parting from my 
dear wife and good U S. A., the majestic Lusitania put out to sea. As soon as I 
was comfortably settled in my state room, I asked permission to .see the wonders 
of a modern steamship. When it was granted me, I decided first of all to visit 
the hold. Arrived in the engine room, I heard the engineer give sharp instruc- 
tions to a down and out fellow whom he addressed as "Titus," and my curiosity 
was at once aroused for one of my chums at college bore that stately name. 
Looking about me I saw a dirty, black fellow shoveling coal for dear life into the 
fire box. Careful inspection proved to me beyond any doubt that it was Titus 
Leibold. After a hearty hand shake and a good old talk from which I learned 
the whereabouts of others of my classmates, we parted again. 

When I arrived at Liverpool, I was hungry from the long voyage. Ap- 
proaching a peanut stand, to my utter amazement I found Chester E. Rettew col- 
lecting sixpence in exchange for peanuts. An hour later I had returned to the 
wharf and had collected my baggage. I hailed a "cabby" and was about to di- 
rect him to my hotel, when with a familiar "Hello, old scout," I recognized this 
princely looking affair as my old clnini, C. C Smith. Aftera long chat with him 
about good old davs, he took me to the .Adalphi.

Upon receipt of instructions from the department, I departed for London. 
Having to stop in this, the metropolis of the world, for some time, in order to 
expel the monoton}-, I walked down Trafalgar Square to the Thames Embank- 
ment expecting to visit Parliament which was then in session. Approaching that 
magnificent building I found before its doors a gigantic crowd of suffragettes be- 
ing addressed by two particularly eloquent women. After a short interval, the 
Royal Guards appeared, dispersed the mob, and hustled the two women off to 
jail. Being interested in their fate, T visited the jail and whom should I find but 
Catharine E. Hershey and Nellie Giving bond for their appearance in 
court, they were released and we, together, took in the sights of London. 

Was ordered to France to inspect some known outcrop of the Pre Cambrian 
age. While there I passed through a large vineyard near Toulouse where I 
found N. B. S. Thomas trimming vines. After several hearty drinks of Bor- 
deux mixture, Norman informed me that, finding the ministry distasteful, he re- 
turned to his boyhood occupation of handling wines (vines.) 

My next stop was in Switzerland. Here some striking moraine deposits 
were to be found, and I journeyed hence. Arriving at Interlaken, I at once set out 
to find a competent guide and was fortunate in getting the most noted man in that 
region We set out to cross the Alps. Near the summit there came to me the me- 
lodious strains of a shepherd's horn Wlien we approached, I found it was none 
other than the once famous artist of the Bizirre iyi2, Donald C. Keister. He 
directed us to an inn in a nearby town where was located a famous cheese factory. 
Tne next day, by the courtesy of the superintendent, I was permitted to go 
through the plant. Passing through one of the rooms wliere the Swiss cheese 
receives its polish for the consumer, I found a fellow stooping over a huge pile of 
cheese In reply to m\' question the superintendent told me tliat he was biting 
the holes in the cheese. Immediately the "cheese puncher" looked up and who 
stood before me but long lost Guy Wmgerd. He told me that, having failed at 
Yale, he boarded a cattle ship and landed at this place. 

At Kragonyervatz, Servia, while searching for traces of life in the Palaezoic 
era, I ran across John W. Ischy, poet of Bizarre 1912. Ischy informed me that 
he was doing a prosperous business blowing the sneeze out of pepper. After 
meeting his family and enjoying a pleasant meal with them, I set out for Rust- 
chujk in Bulgaria Here I found no noteworthy geological specimens but found 
Earl H. Carinany, the mathematical genius of 1912, searching for parabolas and 
h}-perbolas in the rainbows of the Eastern sunset. 

Arrived in Egypt, I at once proceeded to visit the pyramids. At a distance 
I noticed a m m kalsoinining the side of Cheop-;. Realizing that a photograph 
of the greatest pyramid would Vje a valuable addition to my collection, I snapped 
my camera and on developing the film several weeks later discovered that our 
"kalsoinining artist" was none other than James C. Sliively.

Hearing of large deposits of loess on the plains of Africa, the expedition 
proceeded across the Sahara to the Guinea coast where I found Clair F. Harnish, 
base ball captain 19 i i , driving profitable bargains with the ignorant natives for 
elephant tusks. As we proceeded along the coast, making frequent visits to the 
inland. I found Arthur S Beckley. Samuel B. Plummer and Forrest S. Hensel. 
the three pious brethren of my class, administering both to the body and to the 
soul of the darkest Africans When I met them they were teaching the heathen 
the airs that were popular at L \' C in 1912. 

Jumping to India and following the Danube to Delhi, where I expected to 
find evidences of the antedeluvian period, I ran across Sam. O. Grimu), editor in- 
chief of Bizarre 1912, diligently searching after "the antiquity of man." I 
scarceh- recognized Sam for he had not associated with civilization for well nigh 
to fifteen years which was evident from the size of his beard. 

Some months later while journeying along the great wall of Chin al noticed a 
familiar form surrounded by a great multitude of Chinese. This turned out to 
be Edna Kilmer who was demjustrating to the astonished natives the value of 
"Beshore's Hair Restorer" by growing whiskers on the sides of the wall. 

Being ordered to investigate earthquake faulting in Japan. I made my way 
hence. While visiting a rice plantation and rice mill I found Jesse Reed filing 
bacteria and microbes off the rice grains I completed my statistics and forward- 
ed them to Washington and was instructed to go to South America to make some 
investigations. It was here that, while crossing the Andes mountains in Peru, I 
found my old classmate Chas G. White, transporting a consignment of vacuum 
clearners to suck the dust out of the headquarters of the Amazon across the 
mountains on Alpacas. We reviewed our school days and from him I learned 
that Helen Weidler was assistant to the head chemist of the Bogota Sugar Re- 
fining Co., U S. of Colombia. 

A cablegram b; ought me to New Orleans and it was here that I discovered 
"Ollie" Butterwick. Business Manager Bizarre 1912, upon the wharf, busily en- 
gaged in shaving warts from pickles. We had a long chat and after a quiet 
smoke, I took a steamer for Baltimore. Being compelled to spend a night there 
I decided to visit the theater and from my box seat I spied Lizzie Lau on the 
parquet. At the close of the performance I met her at the door and while enjoy- 
ing a "light" lunch at Gollam's (removed to Baltimore,^ I learned that Lizzie 
was preceptress at Woman's College She informed me that Carrie Light was 
married and was living at Wilmore, Pa. 

It being commencement time, I returned to my Alma Mater to witness the 
commencement exercises of the class of 1932. I was met at the station by Ivan 
Ressler who had been my class mate way back in the good old day in '12, and 
had now completed his Junior year. 

I returned home to my wife and baby delighted at having learned of the 
wonderful success of the class of igi 2.

A Prep wishing to acquire social culture hid himself behind the bridge west 
of town. It chanced to be the evening that the Senior proposed, which he did in 
the following manner: "Those diamond eyes, those ruby lips, that alabaster

This seemed to have the desired effect, so the next evening, Mr. Prep, tried 
the same stunt on his best girl. At what he thought the proper moment, he got 
down before her and said: "Those demon eyes, those rubber lips, that alpaca

Get out an Aniuial? Watch us try! 
If we can't publish a good Bizarre. 
Better than any that's gone before, 
You can tell us straight in the face we lie, 
And you needn't speak to us any more. 

The other boards; — O, what niistakesl 

We look at their books, and our hearts just ache. 

With a cold critical air we hunt 

The pages through; Oh, well, it takes 

1912 to do the stunt. 


Thank heaven it's over; the proofs are read. 
We've worked and worried till we're nearly dead. 
But good or bad, at least we are through. 
And now with its failure on its head, 
We hand it wearily over to you. 

Knock, if you think to knock's a sign 
That your critical sense is keen and fine. 
We're just so glad that the blan-.ed thing's done 
That we wouldn't fuss with another Viue 
For you or any — one.

In Closing 

Our task is finished at last. We have labored long and hard to produce this 
volume, and it is with a feeling of relief that it leaves our hands. We have tried 
to record in its pages those things that have made memorable the third year of 
our college course. We entreat you, take them in the spirit in which thej' are 
given, "with friendship to all, and malice to none." 

Finally, we wish to express our gratitude to those who have assisted us in 
our labors. Especially do we appreciate the splendid assistance in the art work 
of this volume given us by Miss La\'erne Keister and William O. Ellis, 'ir.
