A1 NOTHER year has passed, and its record of the lives 
^^^ and fortunes of Lebanon Valley's sons and daughters 
^1^^ lies before you. 

The opportunities of delving into the mysteries and joys 
of student life have made the compilation of this history a task 
not altogether unpleasant. We have tried to depict accurately 
and, at the same time, wittily the life of the college and, more 
particularly, that of the Junior class. 

In the name of the class of 1913, we proffer you this four- 
teenth volume of the Bizarre with the hope that it may be a 
source, not only of pleasure to the students, alumni, and 
friends, but also of real service to our Alma Mater.

THE Bizarre 1913 

IS respectfully DEDICATED 

Prof. Alvin Edgar Sliroyer 

ROFESSOR Alvin I dgar Shroyer. B. D., was 
born oil thf first day of May, 1875. in the beauti- 
ful and picturesque Lykens Valley, Dauphin 
County. Pennsylvania. The first ten years of 
his life were spent in tlie quiet little borough of Pillow. 
Here he attended the public schools in Winter and during 
the Summer devoted his energies to the pursuit of the 
common occupation, noted throughout the Mahontongo, 

In the twelfth year his field of life broadened. The 
family moved to Shamokin The first four years found 
him in the employment of the Philadelphia and Reading 
Railroad and Mining Company. The following four years 
were spent in a more lucrative position in the employ of 
Pennsylvania Railroad and Mining Company. 

When about seventeen, a desire and longing for a 
better education began to assert itself This ambition, 
that was not satisfied with the instruction in the common 
branches received in the public schools, culminated in his 
attending the night sessions in the Shamokin Business 
College. Not long after this while attending Lykens 
Valley Campmeeting he listened to a stirring address on 
education given by Dr. Benjamin E. Bierman, President 
of Lebanon Valley College. The latent and dormant 
desires were now awakened into a living passion for self- 
cultivation and expression. 

In the Fall of 1896 he was numbered among the en- 
trants of Lebanon Valley College and in June, 1900, was 

graduated, receiving the degree of B. S. In the follow- 
ing Autumn he entered Union Biblical Seminary, Dayton, 
Ohio, from which institution he graduated in 1903 with 
the degree of B D While pursuing his studies at the 
Seminary he held the position of Instructor of Greek and 
Mathematics in the Ohio Central Normal School during 
the years of 1901 and 1902. During the last year of his 
course he served as pastor on the charge of Harrisburg 
and Little York, Ohio. 

Upon graduating in May, 1903, he was appointed to 
complete the unexpired term of Rev. Smoker, deceased. 
In the Autumn of 1903, he was stationed at Highspire, 
Pa. This pastorate he held until the Fall of 1909 when 
he succeeded Dr. J. T. Spangler to the Chair of Greek 
and Bible in Lebanon Valley College. The duties in- 
cumbent upon this professorship he has since ably 

His cheerful ways and genial disposition have won 
our hearts. His interest in the scholar and his work has 
awakened our esteem. His kind and encouraging word 
to the struggling student has called forth our respect. 
His sympathetic nature has struck a responsive chord in 
our being. His integrity has gained for him the trust of 
our student body. His devotion and loyal support to 
athletics have brought him our admiration. And his no- 
ble virtues and Christian character have endeared him to 
each and every one.

Class History 

".-/ dream itscll is bid a sl.adow 

T1 HE Senior was alone, save for the presence of a 
little brown bound volume. Tiiere was nothing 
^■)^ unusual in that, for lie liked to wandtroff in the 
company of some good book. But now he 
seemed not to be reiding His look was a puzzled one 
as he sat gazing at an intangible something poised before 
him in space. One finger marked a line — the one that 
had sent him off into the reverie. ' ' In sooth, I know not 
why I am so gad." His expression plainly showed the 
sincerity of his doubt. 

Never had he felt thus. Commencement was rapidly 
approaching. Could that be the cause of tliis sadness ? 
With the thought his expression cleared somewhat — but 
only for a moment. Why should that fact make him sad ? 
It was the time that he had looked forward to for f )ur 
long years. Should the slightest tinge of sorrow play a 
part in the fulfillment of so prized an ideal? A deep sigh 
relieved the situation. His eyes closed slowh'. A smile, 
in outline, too plainly showed the trend of his thoughts. 
He was living through those four years again just as 
they had been. Now, iiowever, each moment seemed 
dearer because of the remembrance of its dead brother. 
Time with him was no consideration. Tiie Senior held 
on to each moment, he lingered over every scene as long 
as his fancy pleased. Then he conjured up another one, 
still more enticing than the first. In all tliese scenes he 
saw not himself alone, but every member of 1912. 

The first class meeting in the library was extremely 
vivid; the bashfulness of some, the greenness of others, 
the excitement of all How gratifying it was now to re- 
member that he had liad faith in this crowd from that 
first day on ! But the library ca'led up other thoughts. 
There was tlie remembrance of hours spent in tiresome 
research work, in idle gossip, in interesting and interested 
social groups. But best of all that Junior fc^ed ! Here 
he wanted to tarry so that he might again enjoy the hap- 
piness and health of Junior life, but he could not 

Quick as a flash this scene had changed for another of 
a grander hue. The actors were the same, but the set- 
Xxwi was different; a banquet hall, a sumptuous feast sea- 
soned with an abundance of good cheer and jollity. Yes, 
he was a Freshman once more, reveling in the exuber- 
ance of youth. That banquet was the best of a year of 
good things; a year filled with lively class scraps and 
glorious victories. The smile on the Senior's face had 
grown broader with the remembrance of it all. Surely 
nothing could be more pleasant 

Just then, however, he felt again the pride and im- 
portance of a Sophomore There were the same class- 
scraps; not the same victories but in their place a deter- 
mination that outlives defeat. The Senior was noted for 
his optimism. He recalled those days in which he had 
been forced to cultivate the habit with gratification. 
What a valuable asset it had since proved ! Now he was 
seeing again a Sophomore vision. He knew how delight- 


ful it had been then, but, as he caught its gleam a second 
time, he was startled He had not realized before its kin- 
ship to his dreams of the present year. The similarity was 

Would his dreams come true? Incidents from his 
College life came up in such rapid succession that they 
soon claimed his entire attention again. It was refresh- 
ing to think of the good old times of dormitory life. So- 
cial scenes, class-room scenes, chapel scenes, were each 

trying to gain prominence when the Senior was awakened 
from his reverie The sound of the dinner bell broke the 
spell. But because of the remembrance of former days 
the sound of that old broken bell had grown sweet. 

We all love to dwell on the past. With each new 
remembrance comes new inspiration. May the light of 
that inspiration ever illumine the countenance of 191 2 
with the " supreme and ever-shining benevolence " of her 
Alma Mater! 


Class Poem 

You have seen us oft before 
As we gatliered wisdom's store 

Working hard. 
And now our shouts resound 
That the summit we have found 

And reward. 

They say in Freshman year 
In gusts we shed no tear 

Nor in storms. 
Not a gayer crowd was found 
By the ' ' Profs ' ' upon their round 

Through the dorms. 

But now we walk the street 
And look at all we meet 

Sad and wan. 
Each one shakes his feeble head 
And it seems as if he said, 

" School is done." 

For our College days are past, 
Yet in memory they will last 

Through all times. 
Thoughts of each happy hour 
We will carry near and far 

To all climes. 

I know it is not right 
That we should lose delight 

Leaving here. 
But the happy days we've spent 
And the fun that they have meant 

Are so dear. 

And we hope to live to be 
An honor to L. V. C. 

Bye and bA'e. 
We will work, we do avow. 
And as hard as we know how 

We will try.

Oberlin, Pa. Historical- Political 

"^Aiid ccrtcinly, he was a good felawe" 

Ezekiel Kephart is a little man even if he does bear 
a big name He can, however, be proud of that name, 
since it formerly belonged to one of the best bishops in 
United Brethren history. As to Kephart B he is a good 
sort of a boy. He never causes the professors any trouble 
and always behaves nicely wherever he is. Although 
very young, he is fond of feminine association, partic- 
ularly that of his class sisters and in this he is altogether 
justified. One of his favorite sports is swimming and he 
is an expert when it comes to giving lessons. No one 
would ever drown if he could help it. And then he takes 
naturally to water. Kephart is the son of a minister but 
it is doubtful if he himself will ever be found in that pro- 
fession. He may become a gospel singer or a choir lead- 
er or a performer in a minstrel show, but at present he 
lacks nerve for the ministry. He was born March 23, 
1893, making him one of the youngest members of the 
class of 19 13.

''Archly the viaidtii smiled, ulth eyes nnuiing 
over ivith laughter ' 

From the cit)' of "Brotherly Love," this damsel 
hails^ Of years, she has seen a score, no more. She at- 
tended school in Philadelphia in her early youth and 
came from the High School for Girls to our Academy. 
The school became brighter after her appearance. Her 
sunshiny disposition and cheery smiles are of a kind that 
might brighten the sombre halls of the palace of Pluto. 
After her arrival, a peculiar commotion was noticed 
among the boys, some of them had lost something — their 
hearts. Still 'Floss" smiled on. She is a great talker. 
She talks anywhere and everywhere, and all the time. 
She is a great worker (?), and always accomplishes won- 
ders. "Floss" is a good student and does not have any 
conscientious scruples against "cribbing " She has ta- 
ken an extensive course in Domestic Science. She is a 
good entertainer and that explains why the boys can be 
seen so often wending their solitary way to that eastern 
extreme of our town. "Floss" is decidedly pretty 
and destined to turn some poor lonely bachelor's hall in- 
to a palace of radiancy and love. Just who this will be, 
we would not be so presumptuous as to even make a 
guess. We wish her well.

"My exalted head shall strike the stars" 

Hear ye, hear ye all! This mortal, who has been 
nick-named "Clip," found it convenient to begin life on 
a farm in Lurgan, Franklin County, Pennsylvania, Au- 
gust 7, 18S6. But the farm was not the place for the de- 
velopment of "Floss'" artistic and aesthetic tempera- 
ment: hence, the subject of our story was transported to 
fields of greater opportunity. Floss graduated from 
Cumberland Valley State Normal School in 1907, and 
then assumed the role of school-marm for three 
years. Failing to meet the "ideal of her dreams" in this 
vocation, she entered Dickinson College, but here, too, 
her search was fruitless. "Clip" now discovered that L. 
V. C. suited her mental and moral nature exactly, and 
joined the jolly '13 bunch in its Sophomore 3^ear. At 
Lebanon Valley, "Floss" has attacked Old English, 
Shakespeare, and Latin verse with a vengeance, and has 
thus far trained her horse to maintain a very fast "clip." 
Recently "Clip's" already large stock of accomplish- 
ments has been augmented by a tendency to "roll dem 
eyes" on rare occasions. This dangerous practice, com- 
bined with the leap year tradition, guarantees almost ab- 
solutely that some innocent bachelor will succumb to the 
wiles of this spinster of Shippensburg.

'^ Great maste)' in the science of grimace" 

"Vic, " as he states in his autobiography, landed in 
a cloud of volcanic dust at Mt. Aetna, in Berks county, 
on May 28, 1892. Ever since his arrival, he has had 
active eruptions of mirth and folly for "Vic" is the 
comedian of the class. When a child, his mother says 
he was reserved and bashful, but according to the laws 
of motion, every action has its reaction and "Hefly's" 
case is no exception, for he can hardly be recognized as 
being backward. His specialty, the rooster laugh, helps 
to keep the cup of mirth boiling at L. V. Having spent 
two years in Lebanon Valley Academy, he is quite initi- 
ated into school work. He is exact in his work and be- 
lieves strongly in the motto "try again" as is proven by 
his strenuous efforts in French i . In personal appear- 
ance, he gives an impression of vitality. He has a good 
physique and prospects are that some day he may become 
quite ponderous. When "Vic" graduates he is going to 
leave this old "dump," Annville, for parts unknown. 
He is not anxious for fame, but yet would like to do 
credit to lucky '13. Although one would not suppose 
him to have a great affinity for the fair sex, those inti- 
mately acquainted with him say that the emotions of love 
within him, though dormant, are yet potent. His future 
seems uncertain, yet we predict for him some unique po- 
sition of usefulness.

'' Her face is fair, her he ait is true 
As spotless as she's bonie, O! 

Being a member of the York County Club does not 
always indicate that you hail from "the Dutch." This 
lassie is an exception for she was born in "Dixie," in 
Thurmont, Maryland, January 30, [892. Her parents, 
being greatly alarmed because she could not talk at three 
years of age, had a specialist perform a slight operation 
on her tongue and you know the result. Talk, did I say 
talk, well you never saw any one like her. She is often 
heard to say, "Oh! my jaws are tired," but still keeps at 
it. Until the time she came to Lebanon Valley, her edu- 
cation was obtained in three different states but this has 
not made her a "loser," for she is one of 1913's brightest 
members. Mathematics is her hobby, and you should 
hear her hand out knowledge to her arithmetic class. 
You may think that all boys are alike to her, but please 
correct yourself, for she gets her daily comfort from the 
Pauline Epistles. Whether these will have any effect on 
her later life it is hard to say. Her plans are a course in 
Mathematics at Columbia, Principalship of a High 
School and then the chair of Mathematics at Lebanon 
Valley College. Success.

".-?;/ impudent felknv may cortvterfit modesty, but I'll be 
hanged if a modest man can eve?- counter-fit impudence" 

Landis R. Klinger, born June i6, 1889, died 

(this means that he is living.) Klinger passed through 
an ordinary childhood with all its stages from colic to 
measles and whooping crugh. He also passed through 
Keystone Normal School. The methods here so conflicted 
that he, becoming weary in mind and body, entered Leb- 
anon Valley Academy to recuperate from the strain. 
Naturally under these conditions, he could do no stren- 
uous work, but being a bright young man, in the Fall 
of 1909, the Facult)' catalogued him as a Freshman. 
And he was a queer one, for instead of being green and 
impudent as most College boys of the incubator stage are, 
he seemed extremely bashful. But "first impressions 
are seldim lasting" and "things are not what they seem" 
will perhaps prepare you for the statement of one of his 
friends in Tower City that, "Landis is not at all bashful 
when >ou really know him." Further proof of this may 
be found in Lebanon. At the close of three years of col- 
lege life, everybody agrees that he is a "jolly good fel- 
low." modest and unassuming, but with a quiet wit and 
humor that will some day be of the greatest help to him 
in his work as president of L. V. C.

".4 perfect zvoman. iioblv planned. 
To warn, to comfort, to command" 

Edith Marie Lehman, the youngest and one of the 
prettiest girls of our class, was born May lo, 1893, in 
Annville, Lebanon county. Pennsylvania On the day 
of her birth, according to the observations of astronomers, 
tlie whole universe was in perfect harmony, which ac- 
counts for her pleasing disposition. From her early 
youth, she has been under the constant care and cautious 
direction of a College Professor, which probably is one 
of the reasons for her deep interest in all intellectual and 
educational works After having received a thorough 
knowledge of the common school branches in the Ann- 
ville public schools, she entered the Lebanon Valley 
Academy, from which she was graduated in 1909. She 
then entered College. Her continual living in a college 
atmosphere, penetrated with the long resounding echoes 
of Latin, French, German and Greek phrases, as well as 
with angles, sines and cosines, has been an essential fac- 
tor in making her a typical college girl. Mucn credit is 
due her for her skill in using her books, both in recita- 
tions and in examinations. She is also an extensive 
reader. Her generosity in bestowing smiles upon her 
acquaintances has won for her a long train of friends. 
Edith has joined the Student Volunteer Movement and 
is destined to make a success of life.

" IV/ir should a man, whose blood is warm u<ithin,

And trulj' the scene was of a nature deeply to im- 
press the imagination of the beholder, when John Freder- 
ick Leininger entered the halls of fame at L. V. C. this 
Fall. John made his appearan:;e upon this sphere of 
blissfulness about four months after the assassination of 
President Garfield and his parents are glad that the 
" Hope of the Famil)' " has thus far survived the efforts 
of his inclinations. He is not a perfect stranger here, 
but has displayed some of his Platonian foresight during 
the years of 1904-07, after which he ably took up the 
teacher's profession for six years. Although John has 
passed the age of adolesence and firmly believes in the 
inferiority of women, he is occasionally seen on the first 
step of the Ladies' Dormitory setting forth his and Dr. 
Sidgewick's Hedonistic views. John is undaunted in the 
presence of his instructors, and since he is a strong advo- 
cate of the theor\' of " Freedom of the Will," he has up- 
on various occasions freely participated in discussions per- 
taining to their work in open class or in private confer- 
ences with the English department. However, this rare 
specie of human anatomy does not like to "cut" classes, 
and this particular characteristic, which is lacking to 
most of the rest of the members of our class, will some day 
make John stand out as a beacon light of truth in learn- 
ing's path.

"A very gentle beast, aiid a good eonscience." 

On February i6, 1887, "God said, 'Let there be 
Light and there was Boaz Light.' " Boaz says that noth- 
ing of further importance occurred until he graduated 
from Avon Shady Side Academy. However, greater 
things were in store for this young inan, and he was 
ushered into the Normal Department of Lebanon Valley. 
The date of this event has been lost in antiquity. Suffice 
it to say that Boaz' acquaintance with L V. has not 
been short Believing the spice of life is variety, this 
luminosity supplemented his education with frequent 
wanderings in the realm of pedagogy After three years 
experience with the "persuader, " Boaz was initiated into 
the mysteries and pleasures of College life witli the class 
of 1913. At college, this only 1913 representative of the 
multitudinous Light tribe has upheld the reputation of 
his ancestors, especially when it comes to "shining," 
and is often seen sporting a derby between L. V. C. and 
Lebanon. Indeed, his affinity for Lebanon is so great 
that he invariably stops off there on his way back to 
Avon. Boaz is a Calcuhis "shark." He is very fond 
of soft drinks, especially "Seltzer." This combination 
is strictly O. K., according to the latest 1912 authorities.

The electric tingles of hit after hit. ' ' 

This page gives you a dignified looking gentleman. 
Yes, dignified because of his glasses, which he found were 
absolutely necessary, for he had been continually in the 
light the past four years. He was born some years ago. 
We are sorry that we cannot give you the exact date, but 
as he will not commit himself you must draw your own 
conclusions. But we can tell you that it was sometime 
after the Civil War. Of his life as a youngster, we can 
give you no definite record but it comes from good 
authority that he spent much time studying electricity 
and coining witty sayings. All these things happened in 
a little western city of Pennsylvania, and since he has 
come to Lebanon Valley, the proofs have been self- 
evident. Since a "prep," he has been aiming at that 
agent or force in nature which illuminates objects and 
makes them visible. He is the wittiest person around 
the place and it is hard to get ahead of him for he is al- 
ways ready with a quick retort or some answer. At 
present, he is preparing to be an "oratoricler." It is 
rumored that he might also be a lawyer, but according to 
past and present indications, some day he will "carrie" 
the admiration of the world by a perfect lighting system.

Evolution=Beginning+Process + End. 
Beginning — G. Adolphus Richie born at Shamokin, 
Pa., Sept. 22, 1888, graduated from Shamokin High 
School in 1907. Process — It is usually hard to mark the 
transition from beginning to process, but in Richie's 
"case," it can be traced directly to his meeting HER, 
during his two years' stay in Philadelphia as a steno- 
grapher. Since that, evolution has been rapid. In 
1909, he came to L- V., he saw the "profs," he con- 
quered. Never a class-scrap, or "feed" at old L. V., 
but Richie has shown the greatest pluck and capacity, 
although he is the smallest man in our class. He 
has been treasurer of every organization around the 
place and has never absconded once, not even when he 
was entrusted with the immense funds of the Ministerial 
Association. From this and the fact that he is now chief 
chicken and sweet potato eater on Jonestown circuit, it 
may easily be inferred that Richie is a minister. As 
Editor-in Chief of the Bizarre, he has not only weekly, 
daily and hourly urged the members of the Staff to "get 
on the job," but he has worked untiringly himself. End 
— This remains to be seen, but we prophesy for him, a 
course at Bonebrake Theological Seminary, then a large 
parish in Philadelphia where THEY will do noble work.

Do you see this philosophical face? Do j'ou see the 
furrows of thought and the lines of deep reasoning on his 
noble brow? Tliis is Mr. Palmer F. Roberts, who was 
born in .\twood. 111., during the month of August, 1880 
A. D. This gentleman can truly boast of a wide and 
varied experience in life. Having spent his boyhood and 
youth in a rolling mill, he later joined a band of travel- 
ing evangelists In this work he travelled through four- 
teen states and by some strange law of attraction drew 
near Pennsylvania and the E-ist where he "got him a 
wife" and some theological training in Bonebrake Semi- 
nary. After this, he came to Lebanon Valley where he 
has distinguished liimself in several ways. He is quite a 
logician and philosopher and deliglitsin arguing with his 
professors on some problem in Ethics He has endeared 
himself to the hearts of his fellow students hy means of 
this habit, also, for many times has he saved some stu- 
dent from a display of ignorance in class by assuming 
the burden of the recitation himself Mr. Roberts is the 
proud father of twins and often offers as an excuse for 
tardiness in classes the fact that "he bad to rock the 
children to sleep last night." Mr. Roberts will probably 
follow the crowd at L V. and become a preacher. We 
wish him truest success.

'"But give them vie, the mouth, the eyes, the brow! 

"Oh! You Blondy!" This phrase has become quite 
familiar around L. V. C, in fact, the inclination toward 
"Blondy" has become quite marked, from the fair sex 
down to hypnotized subjects, " where s Blondy?" In 
the aforementioned, we refer to Frank who was born 
Sept. 17, 1 89 1, near Middletown, and consequently that 
town has grown famous and it's place on the map firmly 
established. In fact, hy hearing him talk, one would 
think that the capitol was misplaced and should have 
been situated at Middletown. There would have been 
no "grafting" done there. After graduating from the 
High School of that renowned city, which school in 
course of time had an excellent basketball and baseball 
team, Frank came to Lebanon Valley. At first there 
were many conceptions, theories, and speculations as to 
how "Blondy" was reall3' classified and where he stood 
in his literary work. After nominally entering the 
Freshman class and showing that "bntich" a few things, 
that same class could no longer contain" him and he be- 
came a Sophomore and so finally the '*die"' was cast and 
Frank, has stood faithfully tO' !i3r' '•. We "know little of 
" Blondy 's" future but can predict success only as spring- 
ing from such manifest accomplishments.

A eoni'ersatum in Ins eves;" 

This contented looking individual first saw the light 
of day in the obscure village of Fredericksburg, too long 
ago for any of us to remember. The day, however, must 
have been one of unusual calmness and quiet, for the 
marked serenity of his disposition has ever been a feature 
of his character. He drank in the food for his youthful 
mind in the village schools of Fredericksburg. After 
graduation there, he aided in shaping the future of 
America, by wielding the rod over thirty or forty young 
"hopes." He followed this occupation for three years 
after which he came to Lebanon Valley and began his 
career as a student He has always been a faithful stu- 
dent and a lo3'al member of '13 He has declared him- 
self a "total abstainer" in regards to the girl question at 
L. v., but the Editors feel inclined to think that his fre- 
quent trips to Lickdale and his peculiar fondness for the 
name Bomberger have no mean significance. At any 
rate, he blushes sometimes and that is a sure sign. Mr. 
Sherk does not speak of his future, but we feel sure that 
after graduation at L V., John will "Take unto himself 
a wife" and enter some profession beneficial to his fellow- 
men, in which he cannot help but succeed.

Lottie Mae says she was born Jan. 29, 1891, on a 
l)ig two hundred acre farm in Maryland. She attended 
the public si-hools at Clievvsville. moving to Annville in 
1905 Here she attended Annville High School and L. 
V. Academy , joining nur diss in 1909. Lottie is a re- 
markable girl Sl:e is one iif the stand bys of 1913 and 
we are proud (.f her. Siie never ftils to do her part. She 
always boos'.s with all her might She possesses a splen 
did voice and has made her "debut" on the stage, that is, 
— she won fame in the Junior Play To those who know 
her best. Lottie shows a disposition frank and open. Her 
heart is large and generous, and her vision of things broad. 
She is optimistic and cheerful. She is. indeed, a fine ad- 
dition to the "Student Volunteer Band " Lottie's one 
fault is her confirmed love of sleep. Let Morpheus' 
breath touch her ever so lightly and — well, it's no use 
Few people know that this lassie left her heart down in 
the mountains of her native state two summers ago. Her 
favorite song is " Dearie," and there's a reason. We will 
not tell any more secrets, but leave the future to work out 
its own salvation.

' ' A wise and masterful iyiaclivity . ' ' 

The summer of 18S9 had been an unusually hot sum- 
mer. Along toward the latter part of August, however, 
a cool breeze from Mars swept over the little village of 
Manheim and left behind it a sweet little baby boy — 
" Our Charley." All this happened in the well known 
Pennsylvania- German district, — a fact which, accounts for 
Charley's "You shust-pet" accent. Charley went through 
the educational mill of Manheim and came out in the year 
1907 with such a profound store of knowledge, that his 
friends and teachers advised him to equip himself, so as to 
impart some of this great store of knowledge to the illit- 
erate children of the vicinity. Accordingly, he went to 
Millersville State Normal School and taught one year. 
In the meantime, however, he decided to make his life 
count for still more and accordingly came to Lebanon 
Valley Academy in 1908 to preoare for the ministry. 
Since then he has been busy shining in his classes and 
looking wise. Charley has the distinction of being one 
of the prettiest boys in the class. He is also one of the 
brightest and most original. Many of the Lebanon \'al- 
ley girls have tried to win his affections, but in vain. He 
remains true to the "wee bonnie lassie" "back up 
home ' '

■' 'I'hou hadst a voice whose sound was like Ike sea: 
Pure as the naked heavens, majestic, free. ' ' 

Harry, the dude of our class, was born on the first 
day of July, 1889. in the Capital City of what he thinks 
is the best state in the Union. Then as now, he made his 
presence known by his melodious voice. When he reach- 
ed the proper age, he entered the public schools of Har- 
risburg and used to entertain his schoolmates for hours at 
a time by preaching and singing to them (at least we 
think he did). That his musical talent was appreciated 
by the school is proven by the fact that he was elected 
leader of the High School Choir in his Senior year He 
finished his High School work in 1910 and came to Leb- 
anon Valley in the Fall of tliat year. He first joined the 
Class of 1914, but not finding that class congenial, he 
made another step and landed in the Junior Class this 
year. Harry is a very energetic young man and in addi- 
tion to his school work he conducts a choir at Penbrook. 
This voung lad can also claim the honor of being one of 
our most gallant young men. Like so many of our boys, 
however, his affections are centered on childhood ac- 
quaintances. Beware, Harry! This is Leap Year and 
Lebanon Valley has many a fair young maiden who 
might make use of the opportunities which the year af- 
fords. He says he is "gona be a preacher " and we pre- 
dict for him a brilliant career.

" A/v mind to mc a Kingdom is." 

This dignified, serious looking member of 19 13 was 
born March i, 1886, at Millersbiirg, Dauphin County, 
Pa At the end of three months of existence as an ordi- 
nary infant, he suddenl> refused to cry, and when asked 
his reason replied that he was deciding whether he ought 
to cry for duty's sake or from a purely Hedonistic stand- 
point. His childhood was remarkable, but his fame did 
not reach this part of the state until, on leaving Rerrys- 
burg Seminary, he became a student in L V. Academy. 
Here he began his real education according to the bien- 
nial system, that is. he imbibed knowledge for a year and 
then spent the next xear in giving it as a minister, to his 
fellowmen. His last season of " distribution of knowl- 
edge" extended over two years and when he returned 
this year as a Junior he brought with him his wife and 
Mark Wert. Jr. 

Mr. Wert is a philosopher. His mind is always 
busy with great philosophical, ethical and metaphysical 
thoughts. He has taken every course in philosophy of- 
fered at this institution, and this year is taking the course 
in Ethics again in order that his former grade of 99 99 100 
per cent may be raised to 100 per cent. At present he 
has a charge near Cleona, where he can use all surplus 
knowledge every Sunday. As a philosopher and a the- 
ologian he is expected to prove a star in the 1913 crown.

' ' Quick to learn and ivise to k?i02i'. ' ' 

It is indeed with great pleasure that we introduce to 
you George Albert. He became one of us in our Sopho- 
more year and he is one of the two Academy scholarship 
students of which our class can boast. He graduated 
from L V. Academy in lyto, and after "sizing up" 
1914, he decided that for the best interests of his mental, 
physical and moral welfare he would abstain, and rising to 
the highest level possible, joined good old 1913. George 
has been looked upon as somewhat timid ever since he 
came here but we notice that that bashfulness is wearing 
off just now Wlietlier the coming of leap year has had 
anything to do with it, is yet to be found out, but certain 
it is that lately the pavements tOv\'ards Professor Spes- 
sard's home have met with more — considerably more fric- 
tion. This young prodigy was born Sept. 24, 1893, and 
received his early training at the Pottstown High School, 
from which place he came to our Academy.

Diligence has always been a characteristic of her school

been evinced by the many pleasant evenings a certain 
Alumnus spends at the Hall Edna is also taking a 
course in oratory, applying herself most assiduously to 
this department She is prompted to specialize in this 
department in the hope of some day becoming a minis-

' ' Looks at all things as ihev are 
But through a kind of glorv ." 

This fair maid, Sara Esther, was born way down on 
the farm not far from the "Beautiful City Among the 
Hills" some time between the middle and end of the 
nineteenth century. In youth Sara was always found lis- 
tening to the murmurings of the brooks and rills, the 
sighings of the trees and the voices of the birds and Na- 
ture. Then this unpresuming maiden left the quiet coun- 
try to live in the bustling city. There she delved into the 
depths of the mystic lore of the poets and classics. But 
Sara was not content with a High School education and 
so accordingly wended her footsteps to our College. She 
is very pretty and she is witty; she is decidedly original, 
one never knows what is going to happen next. Sara 
likes poetry, dreams poetry, lives poetry and writes poe- 
try. Her favorite saying is, " Now, Mark you ! " Sara 
has one bad habit, she is absent-minded, always forget- 
ting something. One very cold and stormy night she 
forgot her gloves. She did not freeze her fingers. No, 
that is not like Sara. And upon this episode there hangs 
a story which we cannot give for the last chapter has not 
been completed. This is all. 

Junior Class History 

Yl OU will find recorded in this history defeats as 
^_^ well as victories, for we have decided to "tell 
^^P the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the 
In 1909 we came to Lebanon Valley knowing little 
of the school now so dear to us, and less of each other, 
but in two days' time we became one folk into which the 
spirit of 19 1 3 entered with the one thought that "Strength 
United is Stronger. ' 

A new life lay before us. We realized that we had 
passed the smooth, barren plains of High and "Prep" 
School and were beginning the ascent of a mountain, the 
steep sides of which were covered with beautiful trees and 
rough, jagged rocks, bright flowers and thorny under- 
growth. In a short time, inter class contests began and 
then we found how very big and rough the rocks were, 
but 19 13, though often scratched and bruised, always 
moved further and further up the mountain side. And 
not a rock was passed but we were rewarded by a good 
time in the shade of the trees or the finding of a flower. 
After the football game, we found not one flower but a 
perfect mass of blossoms giving forth a fragrance never to 
be forgotten by any member of 1913. It was our ban- 
quet at the Hotel Wheatland in Lancaster. Our next class 
contest, the debate, proved to be no rock in our path; 
hardly a stone, for the Sophomores failed to appear and 
the victory was declared ours. One more rock, the base 
ball game, was easily passed and then upon the summit 
of the mountain we saw floating a crimson and steel ban- 

ner showing that we had won every contest of the year. 

When we returned the next Fall as Sophomores, we 
learned that eight of our members had sought new ways. 
The class contests began and we were forced to start down 
the mountain but it was through lack of numbers, not 
courage. It would have been so easy to forfeit the con- 
tests and roll down the mountain, but 1913, being a 
plucky little class, "stuck together," and made the 
Freshmen work for every inch of ground gained. De- 
feated we were, but we bore it bravely; sought out pleas- 
ant shady places on the mountain side; and had so many 
good times that the Freshmen, envious, tried to attack us 
one night as we were returning from a "feed " We sug- 
gested, that if they could only get their heads together, 
they might have equally good times and sent them heme. 

Near the bottom of the mountain, we found a place, 
cool, and green, and restful. There we stopped to pon- 
der over our two years of College life, rejoicing in the 
victories of our Freshman year and rejoicing still more in 
the fact that the defeats of our Sophomore year had not 
weakened, but strengthened us. The name of Valley 
Glen or " Sophoglynne " is one that will be ever treasured 
in the heart of every member of 19 13. 

This year the mountains and dells are almost as 
dreams, and before us lies a valley. This valley is smooth 
and green, but it offers work and opportunity without 
end. Each day it widens out before us, and our greatest 
wish is that we, with the valley, may become in spirit 
bigger and broader. 


Junior Class Poem 

Back in the glad days of childhood, 

Back in the dream hours of youth, 
When Life as yet was but mystery 

And the world contained naught but the truth. 
Then we built wonderful castles 

And we sent our ships out to sea. 
Ships to explore — but they've come back 

Empty to you and to me. 

But the castles we built all have crumbled, 

The aspect has changed with the years. 
The Edens we fashioned have vanished 

And the ashes are wet with our tears. 
Yet we linger long 'mid the ruins; 

Is there no compensation ? When lo ! 
Hope's angel steps forth like the Phoenix 

And beckons us onward — " Child, go ! " 

And she smiles as she beckons thus to us. 

And her eyes wander far, far away 
'Til they rest on the deep, hazy distance 

Which melts into one mass of gray. 
Yet the smile makes the vision the brighter, 

We shall never forget it we know. 
We depart, with the firm, fond assurance — 

Compensation we'll find as we go. 

Classmates ! to- day we are lingering, 

Perhaps, over some cherished dream, 
Or we may have discovered already 

"Things" really "are not what they seem," 
But soon we must put by our musings. 

There's a path that we all have to tread; 
And these problems we ponder in school days 

We'll leave for the real ones ahead. 

When we turn at last on the old scenes. 

And come to the path where we part, 
L,et us not as we contemplate distance 

And vagueness, grow weary at heart. 
There are foot prints of great men to guide us, 

There are by paths many, 'tis true. 
To Fame and to Fortune — we'll leave them 

To follow the good and the true. 

Then let us resolve — e'er we sever. 

To use well the fast passing hours. 
That some day we'll reap of life's harvest 

As in childhood we gathered its flowers; 
To become rich in deed, not in baubles. 

To give the world more than we take, 
To tread Duty's path as we see it, 

To give back to Life — for her sake.

Class Historv 


NE might as well attempt to harness the wind, 
saddle a hornet, make a polar expedition on the 
wings of a flea or take a day's outing on the 
chin of a frog as to give a complete historj^ of 
the Class of 1914. Not even the encouragement and in- 
spiration of a nasty mosquito upon a sterile cranium would 
suffice to prompt one endeavoring to accurately trace the 
history of our Class in its different spheres of sense and 
nonsense. More than earthly aid would be necessary to 
accomplish this. As such aid is not available and the 
space is limited, I shall only give a brief summary of our 

In September, igio, we embarked in our strong bat- 
tleship ' ' Progress ' ' and set out on our vo\'age across the 
boisterous and briny sea of " Intervention," to the Soph- 
omore land, where we were destined to become citizens. 

To our regret, we discovered, upon reaching the 
"Promised Land," that our number had decreased to 
twenty-six. With this number now on board we have 
again embarked on the great sea of college activities 
bound for the imperial realm of Junior life. Again we 
encountered a few combats, however, not as many as on 
our former voyage. Neither have we been quite so suc- 
cessful as formerly, due to the fact that our enemy is more 
formidable and numerous than their "cousins," yet we 
are sorry to say that they seem to lack the courage and 
fighting spirit of our former foe. When our good ship, 
" Progress," hoves in sight they seem to steer their bark 
away from it, as if in fear. 

We met our first defeat in the deadly combat, the 
"Tug of War," when though greatly outweighed and 
realizing defeat, we pluckily fought to the end. Our next 
notable combat was the hand-to-hand fight on the cam- 
pus, when the Freshmen could not reconcile themselves 
to the fact that one of their number should be adorned 
externally with as much greeness as he possessed inter- 
nally. When time was called 1914 was declared the vic- 
tor by the officials. This was a new laurel gained. 

When we embarked on our second voyage, we were 
determined that none but original tactics should be used. 
Hence we obliterated the poster stunt at the beginning of 
the year. However, when our "understudies" became 
so disobedient and showed themselves so cowardly and 
stupid as to supplement their Thanksgiving Dinner with 
their regular banquet, we could not resist the temptation. 
Consequent!}', posters very appropriate to the occasion 
appeared mysteriously. Once more we were called upon 
to defend our cruiser in hand to hand conflict. The fight 
was a hard one and we did our best. At the finish it was 
declared a draw. This ended hostilities up to this time 

Next will come the basket ball contest and the de- 
bate, bv which we expect to raise still higher and higher 
the "Granite and Brown." Never was a class so 

daring in deed; never a class more firm in adopting and 
executing resolutions. These are the qualities by which 
we hope to persistently continue our voyage until we 
have moored our good ship " Progress " in the grand but 
exclusive harbor "Success." 


Class Poem 

Ay ! bear her beloved banner np, 

Long has it waved on high, 
And many an eye has danced to see 

That banner in the sky: 
Beneath it has rnng many a victorious shout, 

And the cry of the game loser, too. 
What care we for the little lost. 

We've carried many a vic'try through. 

Her colors — "Granite Blue and Brown," 

To her boasted colors always loyal. 
The campus scraps will testify 

To her propensities for battle royal; 
Pray ! do Freshmen think she's slow ? 

Oh ! why did they prolong their vacation : 
Oh 1 Freshmen how wonderfully clever and bold 

In getting some " eats " and a little flirtation. 

Nineteen fourteen, here's to thee, 

May calm and sunshine long be thine; 
How dear that name to every one 

Of those who worship at thy shrine. 
As to " Duni Vivimus, Vivamus" staunch and true 

May we be to Alma Mater, too, 
That in after years she may boast to claim 

Nineteen-fourteen's honored name.

Class Historv 

f^TTTj ILL they make good? This was the question 
I yy asked by the various classes of Lebanon Valley 
I^S^ College when we first appeared on the campus 
at the opening of the school year. W'hile every- 
body recognizes it as a positive fact that the Sophomores 
regarded us as an easy proposition, we have proved to 
them that ones fall may be as rapid as his rise. The 
"Sophs," elated by their victories of last year, did not 
even try to prevent us from organizing as a class. 

From the first day we were busy trying to beat the 
" Sophs " in every move. Since we knew all about their 
poster plans, we startled them during the first week by 
letting them behold the results of an early morning's 
work. The posters glared them boldly in the face and 
not so much was heard about Freshman "greenness" af- 
ter that. 

During our first week here we had taught the 
" Sophs " to respect us, and although they grew so alert 
as to watch our every movement, w^e managed to evade 
them. The result of one of these evasions was a happy 
straw- ride followed by a "feed." What ill success the 
" Sophs" had trying to spoil our enjoyment in this event 
is easily explicable when you see their wry faces at the 
mere mention of the occu'.rence 

Our athletic victories are events of which we can 
justly be proud. The Sophomores, resting on the laurels 
of the preceeding year, were confident of winning the 
Tug-of War. But we very decidedly proved to them in 

less than a minute's time that the battle was not to be 
won until it was over. We struggled closely matched 
for several seconds, but the Sophomores, unable to stand 
the strain, wavered. Triumphantly we pulled them over 
the line Fifteen times was this feat repeated and then 
our discomfited opponents left the field, yielding us the 
victory by the onesided score of sixteen to nothing. 

Immediately following Thanksgiving, one of the 
greatest successes of the season occurred. The Freshmen 
under the very eyes of the " Sophs " slipped off to York 
and there held their banquet at the National Hotel in re- 
gal style. The consternation of the "Sophs" when they 
missed the familiar forms of the "greenies" may be bet- 
ter imagined than described. From morning till night 
they had scouting parties on the jump searching in all 
but the right direction, and although they scoured four 
counties only four belated "Sophs" managed to reach 
York. These tried to win notoriety by pouncing on a 
lone Freshman as he was returning to the hotel. In- 
stantly he was rescued by a band of his classmen who 
routed the "Sophs" in short order. Nothing remained 
for them but to go home and tell their disconsolate breth- 
ren what an enjoyable time the Freshmen were having. 

The natural result of this Freshman success was the 
desire of the "Sophs" to redeem their former defeats. 
With this burning desire first in their minds they hastily 
got up a poster in which they were even honest enough 
to admit our bravery One foggy morning, following the 


banquet, after they had securely fixed the doors of a num- 
ber of the biggest Freshmen, in order that their safetj' 
might be insured, they mustered up sufficient courage to 
mount their posters. Their night's work did not seem 
to agree with them, for when we, the Freshmen, saw their 
posters, we assembled and soon had the town rid of them 
while they stood by meekly and looked on We answered 
further by engaging them in a class scrap which grew so 
interesting that the upper classmen interfered before its 

But we do not let our athletic victories keep us from 

improving our intellects and already we have shown our 
skill in studies by successful work in every department. 
Spurred on by our motto, " Spes sibi quisque," we will 
strive to attain that end which we are so eagerly seek- 
ing. — the broadening of our ideas through education. 

But a word of parting and then my work is done, 

The battle's never o'er until the fight is won. 

The course of Time is speed}-, for his race he soon doth 

So let us work with diligence that our tasks be not un- 



Class Poem 

Listen ! have you never heard 

Although 'tis strange if not 
Of our Freshman class of L. V. C. 

That is always up to the ' ' dot ? ' ' 

Whenever we our colors show 

Our faces are with pride aglow, 

For have we not been very bright 

In choosing the college colors " Blue and White? ' 

Of athletics, too, we're very proud. 

And of our boys as well. 
For it is they who win the games. 

We all think are so "swell." 

In this Freshman class there're just ten girls. 
But that's enough they say, 

For such charming maids like priceless pearls. 
Are not found at any place and day. 

But let us speak of our lessons now. 
Which we do as well as we can, 
Although the " Profs" get cross sometimes, 
And say we're not doing what they demand. 

Then there're some, who in Algebra 
And some, who in French excel. 

But as a whole, the Freshman class 
Is doing pretty well 

But now, alas ! too soon 'tis o'er, 

This happy Freshman year. 
And we'll leave these halls of L. V. C. 

To return as ' ' Sophs ' ' next year.

Academy History 


X THE year 1834, as near as can be determined, 
there was a small private school near the site of 
John L. Savior's & Son's Carriage Works on 
White Oak street. This was the beginning of 
Annville Academy. In 1S36 the school was removed to 
a building on Main street, which in 1858 was replaced 
by the old Academy building. In 1868 this was donated 
to Lebanon A'alley 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 ^'alley Academy, with Prof. H. E. Spessard 
as its principal. From then on the Academ\' has stead- 
ily grown under his efficient direction. In 1906 a schol- 
arship of one hundred dollars in Lebanon \'alley College 
was first oflFered. 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 debat- 
ing club, which met monthly. This was the first student 
organization in the Academy. The strong foot ball and 
base ball teams of that year testifx for the spirit of the 
students. It was this same year that the senior class 
first had a graduation 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 19:0 numbered thirteen and proved equally 
capable of leading its student organization. Though the 
debating club was dropped the Acadamy still existed as 
an organized body. Seven members graduated from the 
Academy in 191 1. The entire enrollment during this 
year was greater than ever before. The base ball season 
was the most auspicious in the history of the Academy. 
The entire team was supplied with nevv suits and all other 
supplies with funds raised by the students in the Acad- 
emy. The boys of this team won the majority of games. 
Only with the aid of its hard working principal was such 
success possible. The class of 1912 promises to uphold 
the standard of the Academy. The senior class num- 
bers fifteen. In athletics the students are trying to excel 
the work of former years. An excellent schedule for base 
ball has already been arranged with schools of equal 
standing for the coming season. What was perhaps the 
work of greatest importance for the year of 1911-12 was 
the organization of the Sophronean Literary Society. 
Nearly all the academic students are members of it. This 
promises to be another important event in the history of 
Lebanon \"alley Academy. 


Academy Poem 

I shall sing you a song 

Now, not verj' long, 

Of a bunch of gay boys 

With their girls and their joys. 

They strive. Oh! so high, 

Nor breathe even a sigh 

For the use of the verb 

Or the troublesome word. 

They're the sturdy young athletes, 

Making marks with their cleats. 

They're the leaders in sports, 

Nor are seen out of sorts. 

They're in for real fun 

■When their day's work is done. 

The Freshmen sit back 

And the Sophomores quack 

Since there is nothing of lack 

To the Red and the Black.

Class Poem 

The time has come when we must part 

With saddened hearts 'tis plain to see, 
We hate to part from classmates dear 

And dear old L V C. 
Through three long years we've studied some, 

And learned our lesson well, 
To the white rose we'll e'er be true. 

For it our hearts will swell. 

" Ad Astra Per Aspera " is our motto grand. 

Its praises we will ever sing. 
To " Lavender and White" we will alwaj-s bow, 

Our song through all the world will ring. 
We will ever think of dear old College Days, 

Though the future unknown to ourselves. 
Three cheers we'll give for L. V. C. 

And the song for 19 12. 

In music we've excelled. 

We have always done our best, 
On programs oft, in music hall. 
And other duties grand. 
But the glory we attained 

'Tis not all for ourselves. 
The honor goes to L. V. C. 
And the Class of 19 12.

Class Poem 

"O! Little Blue Forget- Me- Not," 

I find here in my way, 
You take me back to L V. C. 

To many a happy day. 
Do you remember, little Flower, 

Oar oratory classes. 
And how you used to represent 

That class of just three lasses ?" 

"I remember when we chose you, 

How wa laughed and wondered when 
A time would come when we would think 

Of those good times again; 
And now that time is really here. 

The years have rolled away. 
And yet those happy times gone by 

Do seem but yesterda^^" 

"How we learned to keep our chests up high. 

To alwa3-s stand erect; 
And then the way that we would breathe 

Had to alwaj's be correct. 

How we learned poor Shakespeare's lines, 

Gave many a thrilling scene! 
And all our excuses we used to have signed 

By our fooled and deluded dean." 

"Society, parties, joint-sessions and all. 

How we used to enjoy them then! 
But early hours we had to keep 
For preceptress insisted on ten. 
(Though our feeds would often last long past that hour) 

Those good times come back so well — 
Ah! when we are speaking of dear L. V. 

There's very much to tell." 

"Ah! Now we are scattered far apart. 

Each other we seldom see. 
But to us all the memory is sweet 

Of those times at old L. \'. 
O! Little Blue Forget- Me Not, 

I found here in my way, 
I thank you for this memory bright 

Of many a happy day."

Y. W. C. A. History 

Religious influence among the girls radiates from our Y. W. C. A. The As- 
sociation is just what every girl — avvaj' from home and its Christian teachings — 
needs to help her solve the problems of good and evil. Religious experience can 
not flourish on thought and feeling alone. Some specific work is necessarj'. The 
Y. W. C. A. is an exercise room for a practical working faith. A deep significant 
religious life is its ideal. It tries to set aside the weights of prejudice, of littleness 
and of self seeking. It attempts to teach each girl how to live honestlj' and 

Every Sunday afternoon the Association meets to discuss practical questions 
about a practical religion. Regular Bible and Mission Stud}' classes are conduct- 
ed. During the past year the meeting place for these classes was the United 
Brethren Suadaj' School. Mrs. Keister proved an able and inspiring leader and 
the Y. W. C. A. wishes to express its appreciation of her services. A Reading 
Circle is another feature of our Y. W. C. A. work. Last summer the Y. W. C. A. 
procured for its members the privilege of attending the Y. W. C. A. Convention 
for Cit)' Associations held at Mt. Gretna. Three delegates were sent to represent 
the organization at the annual Convention for Student \'olunteers at Easton.

Delegates to V. M. C. A. Convention at Bradford, Pa.—'N. B. S. Thomas, V. D. Mulhollen 


Y. M. C. A. History 

The one college organization which oflfers unbounded opportunity for Chris- 
tian service is the Young Men's Christian Association. Its place in a college has 
long been determined and abundantly' empiiasized. Its value to college men has 
never been sufficiently extolled. Within the very atmosphere of the college it 
offers opportunities for service to those whose home ties have necessarily been 
broken by absence from them. Of its men it is making earnest Christians prepar- 
ing for a life of service to mankind. Its responsibility is enormous, for upon it 
devolves the spiritual welfare of our body of students 

The efforts of its offi.:ers have created a definite membership and have straight- 
ened its finances. The membership has risen to about sixty: seventy five was our 
aim. Two delegates were sent to the Bradford State Convention and the new 
President atte:iled the conference at Dickinson College. 

The week of prayer v^'as an inspiring week. Attendance throughout the 3'ear 
has been almost remarkable with interest, increasing toward the end of the year. 
At but five meetings of any kind did we have an attendance of less than twenty. 
Bible and mission study have been successful this year. 

The Association will present the "Merchant of Venice" during the Com- 
mencement week. We aim to send a large delegation to the summer conference.

In Memoriam 

Benjamin H. En^le 

As students of Lebanon Valley College, we desire to 
pay tribute to the memory of Benjamin H. Engle, who 
on June 14, igir, died very suddenly at Hershey, Pa. 

Mr. Engle was a noble Christian gentleman. In his 
every day life he was a man of high ideals, who both, by 
his own example and by personal services, sought con- 
stantly to influence his fellowmen to higher and better 
living . Always he was honest and true to his convictions 
and lived a life above the reproach of men. 

Mr. Engle was the son of Jacob and Elizabeth Engle 
and was born near Stoverdale, Pennsylvania, April 12, 
1853. His father dying wiien he was only fourteen years 
of age, Mr. Engle was thus early in life thrown upon his 
own resources. He began his business career by pur- 
chasing one of the first steam threshers, with which he 
earned the money to attend Millersville Normal School. 
After finishing at this institution, he taught for several 
leT-ms and then went to Pittsburg where he attended a 
busi less college. Returning to the eastern part of the 
state, he bought a large dairy farm near Harrisburg, 
Pennsylvania. Later, however, he grew interested in 
building operations and soon moved to Harrisburg. 

For the twenty-two years following, Mr. Engle was 
known as a prominent builder and contractor. To him 
belongs the credit of inventing a new system of building 
suburban homes, and he developed his system so per- 
fectly that one of the most beautiful sections of Harris- 
burg lias been called Engleton in his honor. 

In all phases of church and educational work Mr. 
Engle was equally active and progressive. He helped 
to establish the United Brethren Church at Penbrook and 
was its tirst Sunday School superintendent. He was one 
of the promoters of Derry Street Church in Harrisburg, 
acting as chairman of the committee which purchased the 
building-site and also as the first Sunday School superin- 
tendent of the church. Twice he had the honor of being 
elected from the East Pennsylvania Conference as the lay 
delegate to General Conference. 

In educational work he served as president of his 
local school board and as trustee of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege from [898 until the time of his death. In 1900 he 
gave to the college the Engle Conservatory of Music, a 
splendid building of Hummelstown brownstone. Better 
than mere words this handsome building tells of Mr. En- 
gle's desire to do something worth while for others. 
When all the other college buildings were destroyed by 
the great fire in 1905, the Conservatory was the only place 
in which the classes could meet. It was the foundation 
upon which the present buildings were placed. For 
nearly twelve years the students have used and appreci- 
ated this splendid gift, and for many years to come in the 
heart of every loyal son and daughter of Lebanon Valley 
College it will keep the memory of Benjamin H. Engle 
as green as the graceful ivy which clings so closely to its 


Hon. William H. Ulricli 

The name of Hon. William H. Ulrich will be long 
cherished by Lebanon Valley College as one of her most 
loyal friends. When he was a member of the Trustee 
Board and later the President of the Board, he had the in- 
terests of the school at heart and worked hard for their 
best administration. 

Mr. Ulrich, son of Adam and Mary Ulrich, sturdy 
agriculturists, was born in Lower Swatara Township, 
Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, June 7, 1844. His early 
education was received in the public schools to the town- 
ship and later he entered Middletown Academj'. Here 
his keenness of intellect and his generosity of nature made 
him popular both among the students and the faculty. 
After several years spent in teaching in the schools of 
Dauphin and Lancaster counties he was elected an assist- 
ant in the Middletown Academy and this position he held 
for two years. 

For the five years following he worked on the home- 
stead, and at the same time pursuing the study of civil 
engineering, which he had begun while teaching. This 
portrays to us one of his characteristics, his determination 
to succeed. At different times during these years he was 
employed b}' the Pennsylvania Railroad Company and by 
the National Pipe Line Company for different surveying 

Unbounded pluck and energy characterized also the 
years of his business life. Many public buildings and 
private homes now stand as a monument to him because 
of his great interest in "Brown Stone." His quarries 
near Hummelstown were the largest in the state. In 
1885 he helped to organize the Farmers Bank of Hum 

melstown and 1892 he was elected cashier, which position 
he held until his death. 

In public life Mr. Ulrich was a prominent figure. 
He was elected in 1S86 Prothonotary of Dauphin County 
and served six terms. Later he was chosen Clerk of the 
Board of County Commissioners and Secretary of the 
Board of Prison Inspectors He was delegated to repre- 
sent Pennsylvania at the St. Louis Exposition, and in 1898 
he was elected a Senator to the State Legistature. Here 
he showed ability in representing the interests of his con- 
stituents. His prominent positions on boards and com- 
mittees shows the respect in which he was held by the 

Several lodges claim his membership, such as the 
Perseverance Lodge, the Free and Accepted Masons, the 
Patriotic Order of Sons of America and the Junior Or- 
der of United American Mechanics. 

In church life Mr. Ulrich was both active and influ- 
ential, and was more than once elected a delegate from 
East Pennsylvania Conference to the General Conference. 
For many years he was director of the Mount Gretna 
Campmeeting Association and also the Pennsylvania 
Chautauqua. As a .iiember of the United Brethren 
Church in Hummelstown he was both active and efficient 
and for a long time served as Superintendent of the Sab- 
bath School. It was owing to his untiring energy that 
their new edifice was erected. It was dedicated only ten 
days before his death, which occurred March 6, 1912. 

In summing up his life, we would say the state has 
lost in his departure: the county, foi which he worked so 
long, will miss him, and Lebanon Valley College has lost 
a true friend and generous supporter.

To Alma Mater 

Our own Alma Mater, the fairest, the best! 

We would not close these pages before 

We had given the echoes of praise in our hearts, 

To one we have oft praised of yore. 

For we are tliy children — we've grown at thy side, 

We walk in thy shadow each day. 

As true sons and daughters, we honor thee now, 

The' simple and poor be the lay. 

We love every spot grown so dear through the years, 

We love all that breathes forth L. \" , 

We are Clio and Philo and Kalo 'tis true, 

But one in our labors for thee. 

And those songs which we sing when the vict'rj^ is won 

Or oft on the still air of night 

Thrill each heart and forever in brotherhood join 

Every soul to the "Blue and the White." 

When soon — ah, too soon, we shall leave these old halls 

And friends that we oft have met here. 

For friends that are broader — fond memory's rays 

Will linger to comfort and cheer 

Forget thee, we cannot, tho' wander we may 

And perhaps ne'er again gaze on thee, 

Yet the thoughts thou hast moulded remain for all time 

And the spirit prevails — loyalty. 

Then onward to heights thou art striving to gain, 

With a prayer for the greater L. V , 

We will go forth to honor thy cause and thy name 

That our children thy glory may see. 

And the years as they bring better things to thy store, 

Bring us all truly wiser to be 

Till the light of the motto our forefathers gave 

Dawn upon us — the truth that makes free

A Leap-Year Soliloquy 

To wed, or not to wed, — that is the question, 

Whether 'twere better to wait four years yet 

And run old maid chancts, or to decide 

Once and for all, this great, great matter 

And have it over ? To wed, ah me. 

Shall I ? And by so doing bring about 

More heart-aches and increase the thousand woes 

Humanity is heir to, — 't is a consummation 

Devoutly to be wished. To wed, perchance 

And wed the proper man, ay — there's the rub. 

If not, then single blessedness for me. 

But I must pause In this respect 

Too many make calamity of Hte; 

Yet who would take the risk — and 't is a risk 

Of waiting, getting more old maidish, 

More insensible to the calls of love and less likely 

To think of moving from this virgin soil, 

When one herself might solve it all 

With a mere proposal ? Who would stop long 

At study and at pondering careers 

But that the thought of that great something, marriage 

(Upon whose sea once launched there's no returning 

In life or death ) puzzles the will 

And makes us bear the ills we have 

Than fly to others that we know not of ? 

Thus like to Hamlet are we cowards all. 

And thus the "psychic glow" of resolution 

Is sickled o'er with the pale thought of men, 

And opportunities which come to greet us seldom 

We turn our backs upon, with this conclusion — 

The creatures are not worth it. But soft! 

That roguish Cupid! — Boy, in thy bright eyes 

I fear my boasts mean nothing.

Our Alma LIGHT of liberty. 

And freedom thine. 
Let old Annville shine bright. 
With L. V.'s many LIGHTS, 
Protect us by thy might.

Biology Class Prayer 

Now as I lay nie down to sleep 

May I the frog in memory keep; 

If I should name his bones before I wake, 

Forgive me, Lord, 'twere by mistake. 

For since this study we've begun. 
To build a frog "I'rof " thinks is fun: 
With Mento meckelian, we begin. 
Pick out the bones to make his chin. 

Thus do we his framework raise, 
And think we then deserve some praise; 
But ''Prof" with notions of his own, 
Says "Frogs consist of more than bone." 

We next insert the parts internal. 
Give him habits most nocturnal; 
Then Mylo hyoid first of muscle. 
With which begins our mental tussle. 

Around all this we wrap his skin; 
Now we've frog without and frog within. 
Give him a kick, saying, "Take your place. 
With croaking frogs, the meadows grace." 
John F. Leininger, '13. 


My Independence Day Oration 

Feller Citizens: I hav bin onored with an invite to 
appear before you on this grate, gellorious, auspicions 
and suspicious occashin. The feelin's what I feel is 
more easier described than imagined. The patriotic and 
distinguished crowd what I sees before me is celebrated 
for its devoshin to the Union and things. Your teown is 
famous all over the world for its onions and its payterit- 
ism; and to be requested to paws and address you on this 
grate and gellorious occashin rayther takes me down and 
fills my sole with varus kinds of emoshins. I cum be- 
fore you with no hily mannered intellick, j'ou won't git 
no floury langwidge out of me I'me a plain man My 
father was a carpinger and I me a planer. 

Feller Citizens: It don't matter to me what any wun 
thinks of me. I speak what Ive got to speak. I'me no 
polytishin. I've no enemys to reward or friends to 
spunge. I'me a Union man from the bottom of me hart 
to the top of me boots. I luv every hoop-pole in Maine 
and every sheep ranch in Texas. The cow pastures of 
New Hampshire are as dear to me as the rice plantations 
of Mississippy. There is mean critters in both of them 
'ere states and there is likewise good men and troo. 

Fellers- Fellers: It don't look very purty fur a lot 
of inflammatory individuals who never lifted their hand 

in defence of Ameriky or did the first thing toward skur- 
ing our independence, to git their backs up and sware 
they'll dissolve the Union Too much good blood was 
spilt in courtin' and marryin' tiiat hily respectable fe 
male, the Goddes of Liberty, to get a divorce frt m her at 
this late day. Tlie old gal has behaved herself too well 
to cast her off now at the request of a lot of darned ad- 
dle brained men and wimmen who ne\er did nobody any 
good and niver will again. 

Feller Critters: I'me sorry the pictures of the God 
dess niver giver her no shoes or stockin's but the band of 
stars round her hed must continuer to shine briter and 
briter so long as this airth resolves reound on her own 
axle tree. I me for the Union now and forever and may 
the hand of the first onery cuss wither who attempts fur 
to bust her up. 

Once more, feller critters, remember the words of the 
grate Gineral Shakspeard: 

"Eturnal liberty is the price of vigilunce; 
Bee \'irtoous and you will be free; 
In de pen dunce is the thing — 
And we're the boys to boost on't." 

Sedic S Rine 


Found — On a Door 

Having been extremely ill and discovering that my 
recuperative powers are of inadequate ability to meet the 
occasion with dignity, it is at pre^^ent a matter of native 
realism, that is to say, common sense, that I confess it 
to be asymptotically impossible to appear before my 
Ethics class to day Pari possu or, however, I suggest, 
or propose for consideration notwithstanding the fact 
that I do not autlioritatively request that the concatena 
tion of students which the class in Ethics embodies, out 
of a spirit, meaning that part of man that has intelligence 
and is invisible and incorporal. out of a spirit of loyalty 
and of explicit yearning in the direction of the subject of 
transcendental freedom, go through with the class ques- 
tions and comments as in the ordinary course of events. 
I likewise suggest that you appoint a leader (Mr. Wert 
or Roberts is suggested) from your number to preside 
and devote the entire hour to a free but orderly discus- 
sion of the subject, in such a manner that the total signi- 
ficance of ,t may be obtained both teleologically and 
theologically and tliat appreciate judgments may be 
formed, according to the pseudo scientific method. 

This is not required, but is proposed as an oppor 

tunity for the expression of loyalty, that is to say, esprit 
de corps. According to the temporal sequence of affairs, 
speaking empirically, you will deserve though not neces- 
sarily receive extravagant commendations for it, not- 
withstanding the fact that superficially it will in no wise 
alter your class grades. It is merely a favorable occa- 
sion for the spontaneous expression of esprit de corps, an 
opportunity for realizing the sensation of psychical glow 
or tinge iridescently. 

To recapitulate, this involves an immense tempta- 
tion, but we increase as a living organism, we approach 
our goal of self realization only by encountering and 
conquering great temptations in the true radio-synthetic, 
configurative manner. 

For the class discussion immediately succeeding this 
one of transcendental freedom, peruse and apprehend the 
contents of Royce's lecture or formal discourse concern- 
ing "Loyalty to Loyalty." Epitomize this lecture, make 
it your own, and react upon it egotistically, altruisti- 
cally, and above all "alma materistically."

" Midsunimer-Nij^lit's Dreitni " 

It was the middle of summer, one of those evenings 
when heaven and earth are hushed to a silence, sad and 
painful. The hour was almost midnight and the bright 
moon, high in the sky, completely flooded the campus of 
our dear old college. Never had she looked grander. 
Did we say everj'thing was still? The cricktts sang in 
the grass growing tali, but there was no other sound It 
was a beautiful and impressive scene and one was obliged 
to feel with the poet: — 

" If thou wouldst view old L. V. right 
Go visit her by bright moonlight." 

Everything spoke of desertion and the thoughts quite 
naturally compared these days with those vihen the build- 
ings had resounded with the voices of happy lads and 
lassies. Yet such was the peace and beauty that it seem- 
ed rudeness to mar it with the mere suggestion of noisy 
student life. 

The crickets sang on and the moon rose higher in the 
sky. The moonbeams, like playful children, chased each 
other about Many of them were creeping up the sides 
of the tall, imposing buildings. One very brave and dar- 
ing ray seemed bent on making her way into the dormi- 
tory — the Ladies' Dormitory. She had resolved to get 
in through the parlor window and she did get in. No 
one saw her except her ever watchful niother, and she 
made no remonstrance. 

In less time than it takes to tell she had fallen in and 
tumbled down upon the carpet. She soon regained her 
feet, however, and began immediately to take in the sit- 

uation It was just midnight — the hour when inanimate 
things take on life, when church yards yawn and other 
mysterious things happen. Vet there was no sound, the 
silence was death like By the brightness of the night 
she could distinguish certain dark objects scattered 
throughout the two rooms. One of these was the old 
piano. This tired body was taking advantage of her op- 
portunity and was sound asleep The chairs, too, stood 
in their places like well behaved sentinels and, keeping 
their arms in place, showed no inclination to move to- 
wards each other. Thev never walked in their sleep. 

The moonbeam was an inquisitive little creature and 
she was determined to find out all she could. Still it was 
her right and privilege, being in such close connection 
with an educational institution. Her steps, however, 
were faltering as she made her way towards a long, dark 
object in the corner. Perhaps she felt insignificant and 
out of place in those vast, luxurious rooms. If she had 
only known ! Those parlors are said to foster the most 
humanitarian feelings which ever dwelt in the mortal 
body. There all classes meet on a common level and 
there is no such thing as distinction. Freshman and 
Sophomore. Senior and "Prep" all harmonize there by 
mutual consent. It is true that there is a kind of roman- 
ticism in the air, and it may have been that which efifected 
the moonbeam. 

At last, however, she reached the dark object which, 
like everything in the room, was sleeping soundly. This 
dark object proved to be none other than the large divan 
of the "dark parlor." The moonbeam touched him 

gently with her warm breath, and Endymionlike he 

"O! I didn't mean to disturb you," she said upon 
hearing the groan which came from the depths of that 
massive body. " I am very sorry." 

" I am so worn out, so tired, but it is all right that 
you have awakened me. Look at me and you will see 
that I am in need of rest. I did not always look like 
this," and then the moonbeam noticed that the one side 
of her friend was much lower than the other, as if some 
one had knocked down a shoulder. 

" O, my," she said, "do they treat you so badly — 
what do they do to make you look like that? " 

" Why don't you pity me, too? " came a much of- 
fended tone from the other corner, and a sob of distress 
followed. The attention of all was directed to that cor- 
ner, for if pity was needed it was there. The little divan 
had not only one but both of his sides caved in The 
visitor turned to her friend — there seemed to be a strange 
attraction between the divan and the moonbeam. 

"Isn't it dreadful," she said, "I don't understand 
it. Won't you explain to me." 

" Yes," said he, "it is hard to bear all these things, 
but I would not give up my task for the world. I will 
wear myself out in this service and utter no word of com- 
plaint. My brother over there cries sometimes Thej' 
treat him worse than me, and he is so much smaller. He 
cries because he is afraid he will die before me. 1 am a 
favorite in one way, for they always choose me first, but 
when they leave they always stay over there." 

"And who are they?" asked the inquisitive little 
stranger, wide awake with wonder and excitement. 

" Why, the boys and girls, of course. Sometimes 
these rooms are just full of them, and they are the most 
interesting people! \A'e have many secrets, my brother, 
I and our friends, the Palms, who will return next Fall. 
O, we have so many secrets that, if they were written, 
they would fill books." 

"This is wonderful, — and the girls, tell me about 
them. How do they look?" 

"O, they are black haired, brown haired, yellow- 
haired and all shades in between. They have glad eyes, 
sad eyes, dreamy eyes, mischievous eyes and any other 
kind, but they are ali my girls, or they have been once, 
only the girl with the black curls My friend, one of the 
Palm Brothers, will allow no one else to care for her." 

And the moonbeam laughed and danced about before 
she asked the next question. "And what did they tell 
you ? ' ' 

"Well, I have heard them talk about everything 
from the weather to the heathen. When they first came 
to me they liked to talk about the weather, but my 
brother says he has never heard any comment on that. 
It seems they don't say much when they go to stay with 
him. As I was telling you, the Palm Brothers are much 
interested in the girl with the black curls and a few oth- 
ers, too. And I am inclined to believe they are schem- 
ers. They plan tjsing to their visitors gently, you know, 
and I am afraid the attraction is going to draw them all 
away by and by. Then my brother and I will be out of 

" What do they sing?" came next 

" Well, I don't know much about music — you see I 
don't get around and my education is rather along one 

line. Isn't there a piece called " Daisies Won't Tell ? " 
I believe I heard my Palm friend mention that one time, 
and the next morning he told me about some talk of cold 
noses, which made us both laugh. And, I remember, 
they sang selections from " The Chocolate Soldier " when 
the preceptress entertained the French professor in this 
room. He is such a little, dignified, soldierly somebody, 
and she always feeds him chocolate. Oh, they would 
make such a romantic couple, just like Romeo and 

The voice of the speaker was getting hoarse, and the 
visitor noticed it. 

" I must go now, " she said, "I have been asking so 
many questions, but may I not ask one more ? What 
becomes of these boys and girls ? " 

Just at that moment there came a sound of music far 
away and then nearer. " I^isten," said the divan, and he 
seemed filled with a new life. " Do you recognize the 
tune? I know it well. It is Mendelssohn's Wedding 
March. And here come my boys and girls ! " 

The moonbeam turned her gaze towards the door 
where they were filing in two by two. She counted and 
counted until she forget where she was and then stopped. 
They passed through the two rooms noiselessly and then 
faded away in some strange manner. 

" Are those all your children, are they all there? Is 
the girl with the black curls there? " 

" No, she still belongs to me. but I do not doubt 
that s'.ie will join them sometime Those were all my 
children but thev are not all I ever had. Some that I 

expected to see were not among them. It is too bad, 
too bad 1 ' ' 

They listened once more The melody had changed. 
It was no longer Mendelssohn but the sad, tender strains 
of the " The Lost Chord " Both realized the significance 
of those words and bowed their heads until the last notes 
had died away. Neither spoke a word but seemed to be 
waiting. The unseen musician anticipated their wish 
and fiintly, but with exquisite interpretation, began once 
more, and finally that most soothing of all compositions, 
"Consolations." Those selections explained to the 
moonbeam everything better than could have been told 
her in words. 

Sne heaved a sigh and was about to bid farewell to 
her friend, but he still looked upon the floor and seemed 
to be mute. He neither spoke nor stirred. She bad 
moved so far away from him that she was unable any- 
more to touch him. Had his fond heart broken or had 
he fallen asleep to dream of his boys and girls once 
more? She knew not, but she tiptoed away softly lest 
she might disturb his rest. 

A shadow fell upon the spot where slie had so lately 
been. All was silence. The big divan with his knocked- 
down shoulder and the little divan with hiscaved-in sides 
ware as dead m;n. The big, healthy looking fellow in the 
light parlor had heard nothing. It was seldom that he 
awoke. Only the moonbeam knew, but she hastened 
away to tell it to the moon mother, and if that gossipy 
old lady does not confide it to every star and satellite in 
heaven, she will not be living up to her reputation.

An Extract From a Freshman's Diarv 

May 5th : 

Well, dear old Diary, I have neglected you of late. 
You'll forgive me when I explain just how it happened. 
Dear old Confidential Chum, you see it was this way, 
I'm in love, up over my ear-tops. It's a deuced fired 
thing to be in love, but I can't help it. She's a peach- 
erina, believe muh. That GIRL is some class. I simply 
can't help myself at all. My old heart goes flipnity flop 
and it's my first case too. I'm mad, confidant, mad as a 

March hare. The boys played a d dirty trick on me. 

And fellows that I thought were my friends, too, that's 
the rub. I don't see any harm in seeing the GIRL once 
in a while. On Friday we had a game of ball. Of course, 
I took her. Then that evening we went to the Anniver- 
sary and the Reception afterwards. I came home early; 
we only talked till 12 p m , HELEN and I, there I told 
you HER name, I didn't mean to do that. Well I made 
a date for the next day. Had lab all morning, couldn't 
see HER then. In the afternoon, we went out for a walk. 
SHE asked me to bring down my violin, SHE said PA 
would like to hear me play. That was all right to take 
down my violin, wasn't it, old "Di? " Well I went any- 
way. Somehow or other HER Dad didn't show up. I 
was sort of glad he didn't for we had a peach of time 
without him. I forgot to play, too, by the way. I liked 
HER company so I made more dates for Sunday. I love 
dates. We went to church in the A. M. Some of the 
boys kidded me but I know they're just jealous, that's 

all. After dinner we went for a walk. Say, "Di," if 
a fellow loves a GIRL and the GIRL loves the fellow, 
tell me, whose business is it anyway ? We came back 
and as it was late for supper at the Dorm SHE asked me 
in for supper. That KID is some sport all right. By 
Gee! "Di." but I made a hit with the Old Man. Say I 
just made that old violin of mine speak for him. My 
violin! Oh! I had left it there the night before, you 
know. After that we went to church. I don't remem- 
ber what the text was, but say maybe that GIRL hasn't 
some dark brown eyes. Then we went home. Doesn't 
the moon look exquisite when a fellow's heart has that 
funny feeling that he can't express ? We had a nice 
time in the parlor, by Jove. By the way, that GIRL is 
economical too, she doesn't believe in the unnecessary 
burning of lights. I like that. Well, we were talking 
about the weather or something like that when the door 
bell rang. SHE fixed HER hair with a deft push here 
and there and tlien SHE answered it. What in the Hades 
do you think, old "Di," was on the porch? There stood 
my trunk and valise. Those blooming idiots of scala- 
wags of class-mates of mine led by my room mate (Oh! 
I'll break every bone in his body yet, see, if I don'tj had 
packed all my duds up and brought them down on the 
front porch Holy suffering lightning rods, but I was 
mad I said good night rather hurriedly. Cuss them 
anyway, made me lose two hours of good pleasant pleas- 
ure. I finally managed to roll that old trunk up to the 


Dorm and carted the valise back too. Then I got busy. 
I chased Mac all over the Dorm but the little shrimp 
escaped me. But I got even, I got his mattress and car- 
ried it off and when I finished his room looked as if a 
deluge, hurricane, typhoon and cyclone struck it all at the 
same time. I fixed Lerew, too. His room was a sight, 
I tell you. I'm feeling better now, "Di. " Igot revenge 
anyhow, and somehow when I think of HER I just for- 
get all my anger. It beats the dogs how that CHICK 
runs in my mind. Say, "Di," SHE'S giving a recital on 
Tuesday night. Judas Priest! I'm fussed. Going to 
send her a bokay. Guess, I'll hock my dress suit. Got 

to raise the dough someway. By golly, "Di," I'm some 
shark. Left my violin down there, now I'll have an ex- 
cuse to go after it. Gee! I got an idea. I'm going to 
leave it there. Always have an excuse then. I'm get- 
ting sleepy, dear. I'll not forget you anymore. I'm go- 
ing to tell you more about that little bright brown eyed 
GIRL Oh ! I almost forgot, when we were out to day 
tue sun (son) kissed HER and SHE has such a nice coat 
of tan. I like brunnetes. Just wait til Tuesday night, 
"Di," I'll be there with bells on. Good-night, "Di," 
good- n i - -

Misery and Its Causes 

(with apologies to dr. devine) 

This subject has been chosen by the author because 
of its prevalent characteristics among college students. 
Some come to college in misery, some achieve niistiy, 
and some have misery thrust upon them. Part of the 
students are miserable all the time and all of the students 
part of the time Thus we hold that misery attendeth 
each and every student at one or another time 

There is much discussion as to whether the misery 
existing among college students is due to any fault of 
their own or whether other causes and ciicun stances con- 
spire, over which they have no control. To shorten a 
long story, we assert that heredity and maladjustment are 
the chief causes of the present niiserv. 

As to maladjustment, the greatest instance of which 
is, that philosophical, classical and scientific environ- 
ments surround some helpless and deluded human beings, 
who are not so framed and fitted; their efforts in these 
respective lines areas awkward as those of a blacksmith 
in a millinery. However, this case causes more misery 
to the onlookers than to the victims themselves, for while 
in misery they are not conscious of the fact, a case where 
ignorance is bliss. Then again, how pitiful is the scene 
when those aspiring students of song, who imagine they 
can sing, who really cannot but do not know it, have as- 
sembled for scrub glee club practice, and happily survive 
the sudden deluge. It is purely a case of maladjust 
ment. Then again, dear reader, remember that awful, 

fantastical, supernatural night of the unfortunate acci- 
dent of the unsuccessful hypnotizing exhibition. Much 
misery and ni>;ht long anguish resulted therefrom. Hu- 
man nature is prone to err and ofttimes the results there- 
from iiave found many a student at midnight in company 
for which he was poorly adapted, wdiose costumes were 
strange to him and whose purposes he fulfilled with great 

However, the greatest maladjustment in the course 
of a student's career is when an exceedingly hard exam- 
ination faces him, and he has entered the class room too 
late to get a back seat, and is consequently forced to oc- 
cupy the first row. This is distinctly a great cause of 
misery as no profound knowledge of horsemanship or pre- 
vious experience as a copyist is of any avail. Nothing 
remains but to "flunk" and then drink the bitter dregs 
of misery in the seclusion of his room. 

A study of social problems usually embraces thesub- 
ject 'Out of Work." This is no exception with the stu- 
dent. While some positions in life are of a steady na- 
ture and take much time, that of a college student is quite 
different. In fact, even after the "grind" has done all 
his work, there remains three or four hours out of every 
twenty-four in which he has nothing to do but sleep. 
This is great waste True there are several shelves of 
reference books to be read as side work in History and 
Economics, several shelves more and an encyclopedia for 


the English course, eight or ten hours every week to be 
spent in the laboratory and every afternoon in hunting 
botany specimens. Then agiin, each lesson in the classi- 
cal course only requires four or five hours for translation. 
There are also mathematics and chemistry, to sav nothing 
of philosophy which can be mastered without almost any 
effort whatever. Add to this the simple review, exami- 
nation every two weeks, and the finals twice a year and 
there still remains two or three minutes after each meal 
in which a student has nothing to do and consequently 
he becomes miserable. 

Another consideration is "Out of Health " This is 
due to two reasons: too much gymnasiirm work and 
over eating in the dining hall. In the first instance, the 
absence of a "gym" causes the mind too much strain in 
imagining beneficial exercises and nervous prostration re- 
sults. In latter case, too much soup, which is all 

liquid and little substance, causes the stomach to becom^ 
fagged out in trying to extract nutritious essence. 

The last but not the least consideration is "Out of 
Friends." The abnormal appetite caused by over eating 
in the dining hall ofttimes causes students to appropriate 
live stock, poultry, etc., in order to satisfy their physical 
cravings. This causes the animosity of the bereaved 
parties. Oh! Misery! 

Again maladjustment forbids the male gentry admit- 
tance to the sacred precincts of the Ladies' Parlor. The 
poor student is denied the privilege of even talking to the 
ladies on the preceptress' steps. No friends can be made 
without acquaintanceship. So the abused student, driven 
to despair, has nothing to do but to go to Lebanon, and 
being "out of friends," he will probably be "out of 
money." This causes much misery and more inconven- 
ience. Oh! misery! And the horrors of misery!

Domestic Science 

Prof. Seltzer. 

The work of this department covers two years. The 
course is an invaluable one to the girls of the college, 
for it develops in them individual power, quickness of 
observation, coherence of thought, exact reasoning, ability 
to measure correctly to an infinitesimally small degree 
and an inclination to cook. 

This course has been arranged for three reasons : 

First, because Lebanon Valley College, having won 
for itself the name of " match factory " proposes to turn 
out matches in which the head will not strike on account 
of any friction with his better half in caring for the inner 

Second, because requests- have come in from young 
men of this college and others that certain girls receive 
such training if possible. 

Third, that the girls may have a reason for relieving 
the college of the burden of superfluous milk, butter, etc: 


M. A. — Four hours, three hours' practical work and 
one hour lecture on caring for burns and cut fingers. 
Throughout the year. The object of the course is to give 
the student a broad general knowledge on baking meat. 

stewing bread and all other fundamental processes of 
cooking. Experiments are performed in the basement of 
the Girls' Dormitory. Each girl is supplied with a chaf- 
ing dish, knife, fork, SPOON and garbage can. Required 
of engaged girls. Elective for others. 

M. N. — Eight hours throughout the year. Two 
lectures on food values or the cost of food, six hours ex- 
perimental work. This is supplemented by special work 
in the rooms. A careful study is made of fudge (how to 
make, pack and send), welsh rarebit, "angel food," 
"devil food," spaghetti, "divinity," and plum pudding. 
Any girl who finishes the course is guaranteed to be capa- 
ble of ruining a man's digestion in six weeks and on 
graduation will receive a recommendation to that effect.

17, which reads as follows: "Failure to pay one bill before a second falls 
due will exclude a student from classes." 

Officially yours, 

Charles C. Peters, 




A Breakfast in the Parlor on a Sunday Morning 

I do not want to be personal, neither do I want to 
display my ignorance in table etiquette, but I have a 
rather interesting story to tell my friends at L. V. who 
were not able to be present at the breakfast table cere- 
monies given in the honor of Miss Sohnjon, the Second, 
on April 28, 19 12, in the Ladies' Parlor. 

Three weeks before the new Miss Sohnjon alighted, 
the whole table was invited to take breakfast with the 
two Misses Sohnjon in the parlor. I could hardly resist 
the temptation to be at this great society affair, betides I 
thought I might as well take all I could get in my course 
at college. Also since it is very hard for me to get any- 
thing from books, I thought that it would be a first class 
way to get it by observation. On the Saturday evening 
before the thing was to come off, I spent three hours in 
searching through Hyde's Practical Idealism for material 
to compose a little prayer in case I should be called on 
to say grace. Then I set the alarm for 7 o'clock and re- 

In the morning, I never heard the alarm and about 
7:30 one of the boys was kind enough to waken me. I 
jumped out of bed right into my Sunday costume and start- 
ed forthe Ladies' Dormitory. When I got there only the 
male side of the house had arrived and thej' were sitting 
patiently waiting for the feminine gender of the tribe. 
Two of the girls came shortly and then everything was 
ready to begin the ceremonies as soon as the "Sohnies" 

Around the corner camethe taller of the two. It re- 
ally looked to me as if she had three feet, but when the 
momentum decreased I saw that there were only two. 
As she came in, all the invited guests arose (the others 
remaining seated), and this struck me so funny because I 
was never used to rising until the class was excused. And 
while I was in this excited state she grasped my hand 
and said, "I am mighty glad to meet you." I replied, 
"So am I," and took my seat again. By this time I saw 
the other absentee make her appearance and then all was 
ready to begin. 

Breakfast was ready. Well, I knew just what to do 
then, because, you see, I had been there before when the 
gong for meal time sounded. I arose again and know- 
ing Miss H rather well, I asked her to be my escort. 

I posted her that in case I should make any mistakes she 
should tramp on my toes. She consented and I took a 
seat next to her My little prayer that I had written the 
night before I had fastened in the palm of my hand by 
means of adhesive tape and not receiving the honor of de- 
livering it, I tried to get rid of it without being seen. It, 
however, stuck so firmly that I abandoned the attempt. 
Of course, this made it rather hard tor me to hold the 
fork just as Miss Sohnjon, the First, had taught me. 
After the invocation we were ready to partake of the ne- 
cessities of life spread before us 

I never was very choicy nor was there very much 
choice there, but at that time I did not know that we were 


to have different courses. For the first course we had 
one of those great big oranges, I suppose all of you have 
seen them already. They are usually for sale at the gro- 
cery opposite Simon Funk's barbering establishment. 
This orange was cut in half and each one received one 
half of a whole orange. I expected to get the other half 
for desert, but my expectations were not all realized, as I 
learned later on. Now the first half, not the latter, I sup- 
pose the waiter got the latter half, or else I had the 
latter half of somebody else's first half or the first half 
of somebody's latter half, anyway, as I was saying, the 
half that I did have (laying the other half aside) was 
covered with beautifulred cherries. These went down 
and got mixed with the gastric juice very well but I had 
an awful time with the rest of the fruit I will not 
weary you with a detailed description of what went 
,on. I didn't like to leave some of it in because I thought 
it might look as if it wasn't good enough for me. But I 
will tell you all when I tell you that the boundary line of 
my half no longer looked like a circle but somewhat like 
a parallelogram. 

The next course — we each got a dish of sliced ba- 
nanas. I thought I understood how to eat bananas all 
right. I got my fork and after eating a few of the slices 
I came to a cake of shredded wheat, so I stopped eating. 
To my horror I perceived that they had all been waiting 
for me to pass the sugar. So in a hurry I picked up the 
sugar bowl and grabbed the first spoon that I could lay 
my fingers on. Later on in the course I noticed that I 
had put the gravy spoon in the sugar instead of the sugar 
spoon. I was enjoying everything pretty well until Miss 

H accidentally stepped on my foot. 1 quickly ap- 
plied the air brakes to my chewing apparatus. I thought 
that now I was discovered in some new mistake. In order 
that I might fully observe, I picked up my napkm and 
wiped off the lower extremity of my physiognomy. I 
just couldn't see anything out of place, so I gave my col- 
lar a tug and proceeded. 

Then we had a conglomeration of flitch and eggs. I 
heard the toastmaster call it bacon and eggs, but mv 
mother always called it flitch. I take mother's word for 
it. It tasted all right, but the time I had cutting it. The 
one piece was fried so hard that when I cut it a small 
piece flew off and missed my cranium by only a half inch. 
After the minimum capacity of my stomach was reached, 
I got up from the table. I picked up my hat and wanted 
to go but my escort said that it would not be courteous to 
leave immediately, so I sat down. I had so much pain 
in my corn that had been disturbed in the midst of the 
ceremonies that I hardly knew what to do. The only 
thing I could do was to laugh. But one time when one 
of the jokes was sprung I was the only one to laugh. I 
can't to this day see the point in it, but I pretended as if 
I was very quick in catching on. 

I told the members of the gang three times individu- 
ally and four times collectively that I wanted to go over 
to the dormitory and get ready for church before they 
agreed to disband. I didn't feel well that whole day, nor 
the next, so I went down to Simon and got an electrical 
massage which fixed me up great. 

No more banquetsin the Ladies' Parlor for me.

A Toast 

To these who have cared for our helpless infancy, guided 
the faltering steps of our childhood, always encouraged what 
what was noblest and best in us — to whom we owe all of the 
good we now possess and all that we hope to be, — 

To Our Parents 

The doll and the soldier are covered with dust, 

The girl and the boy have gone. 

A longing and prayer fills the mother's soul, 

Father feels that his joys have flown. 

Time was when the children were all their own 

And life was one happy strain, 

But somehow the music has all gone out, 

Can't be quite the same again. 

"Now don't you worry, mother," he says — 
"I'll be back real soon, you know." 
But she feels a sadness which deepens more 
Each time that they come and go. 

For she knows they are dreaming of other things. 
Yet she dreams right on with them too. 
Oh! the years are many, the years are long. 
But our parents are always true. 

Aye, faithful to daughter and son, they stand. 

Back in the same old place; 

Tho' they feel no touch of a little hand. 

No smile of a little face. 

Oh, friends! As we follow ambition's way. 

Let's think of those childhood toys, 

And not forget 'tis our duty yet 

To act like "their" girls and boys.
