"Famous men have their biographies; famous institutions have 
their histories. The present is history in the making. Thus is the 
1915 BIZARRE stored with events at old L. V. which make for 
her, history, gain for her, fame, and set in vibration those sympathetic 
strings which are in the heart of every true Lebanon Valley man. 
When your eyes have scanned these pages, when you have lived with 
us again the school year of 13-14 look not with disapproval on the 
life portrayed within. Think once, — twice, and you will see yourself 
as others see you. Look beneath the ink on the paper and you will 
see the harmonious life of our Alma Mater o'ercast with all her mel- 
low radiance. May your smiles be many and your frowns be few 
and quickly dispelled, is the wish of the '15 Bizarre Staff."

"Our Gym" 

^^^^HE opening of college this past September was looked forward to with more 
^ J than ordinary interest. Through the farsightedness and generosity of the 
^^^ Alumni old L. V. was capable of many things unheard of in the history of 
the school. These students of former years dreamed of the time when the athletic 
privileges offered at Lebanon Valley would be on a par with those at sister colleges. 
They in their student days planned vaguely how a Football team could be put on the 
field which would battle successfully against rivals. In pipe dreams, visions came to 
them of the time when their Basket-ball squad could practice without being put to 
such great disadvantage, and when every branch of true college athletics could be 
taken up with vigor. The one thing needed was a Gymnasium. This, the Alumni 
saw and combining their energies they gave to old Alma Mater that which would tend 
to establish athletics and do more than anything else to put Lebanon Valley on the map. 

Space which had never been utilized, although well heated and lighted, was put 
into use. Thus the basement of the Administration building was transformed into 
Locker rooms, apparatus rooms, bath rooms, and rooms suitable for the playing of 
various athletic games. The floor of two class rooms occupying the south end of 
building was torn away, thus allowing space sufficient for the playing of basket-ball 
and for gymnasium exercises in general. Over seven thousand square feet of floor space 
is occupied by departments of the gymnasium, less than two thousand of which had 
never been in use for a?iy purpose. The space occupied includes eight rooms and a 

THE GYMNASIUM ROOM includes basket-ball floor and balcony track. 
The ceiling is twenty-two feet above the floor, the floor is of the best hard maple laid 
on a sub-floor of softer wood which is laid on three by four hemlock studs set in solid 
concrete. The wood floors are separated from the concrete by a moisture proof prepara- 
tion. The floor has been worked and oiled with great care so as to make it durable 
and suitable for fast work in Basket-ball. The walls for five feet above the floor have 
been wainscoated with yellow pine finished and varnished in the natural color. The 
walls above have been painted white. The balcony track is eleven feet above the 
basket-ball floor and is five feet wide covered with a special quality of cork linoleum. 
The walls above the track are covered with green burlap to the chair board above which 
they are white. The balcony is surrounded by a heavy iron railing and will accom- 
modate about three hundred spectators during games. Besides the gallery benches for 
spectators there are portable bleachers on the main floor under the ends of the gallery, 
which will accommodate about one hundred persons. 

The gymnasium equipment was procured from the Narraganset Machine Co., of 
Providence, R. I., through their representative Mr. R. D. Burtner of the class of 1900. 
The equipment, the very best and the latest improved in every respect, includes 
Horizontal and Vaulting bars, horse, buck, inclined spring board, beat board, traveling 
rings, adjustable flying rings, climbing rope, parallel bars, striking bag, vi'ith adjustable 
drum, 4 mats, Indian clubs, dumb-bells, medicine balls, hand balls, basket-balls, indoor 
baseballs, volley balls, chest weights, wands, etc. 

special preparation on the walls suitable for these courts and also contains a striking 
bag and chest weights. 

THE MEN'S LOCKER ROOM has been equipped with one hundred and 
forty-eight double tier 12 inches by 12 inches by 36 inches steel lockers with time com- 
bination locks. 

THE TEAM ROOM has been equipped with twenty-eight single tier 12 inches 
by 12 inches by 60 inches steel lockers with time combination locks; also massage 
table, chest, bench, etc. 

THE LADIES' LOCKER ROOM has been equipped with seventy-six double 
tier 12 inches by 12 inches by 36 inches steel lockers, thirteen dressing booths, four 
shower baths connected with the dressing rooms, toilet, etc. 

equipped with anthopometric apparatus, chests and cases for all athletic supplies which 
are under his direct supervision. 

THE STORAGE ROOM for storing portable bleechers and other materials 
when not in use. 

Altogether the gymnasium proposition undertaken by the Alumni has been very 
creditably and successfully carried out and reflects great credit on the association and 
the individuals who have planned and executed the work. 

Every one interested in athletics and gj'mnasium work who looked in upon the 
facilities which have been made have been greatly pleased and surprised that such 
excellent facilities were possible in the space utilized. A former student and coach 
who has been in the gymnasia of many of the best institutions of the state has said 
that Lebanon Valley College now has as good facilities for physical training as any 
college in the state of Pennsylvania.

"The Future of Lebanon Valley" 

Pres. G. D. Gossard. 

HEBANON Valley College was founded by consecrated churchmen who be- 
lieved in Christian education and also that young people had a right to 
expect a good school and that the church was under obligations to furnish it. 

For almost a half-century Lebanon Valley College has been making history. It's 
students have been numbered by the thousands and have gone to fill positions of trust 
and honor in every state of the Union and in foreign countries as well. They came 
from country, hamlet and city to drink at the fountain of truth and thus fit them- 
selves for greatest usefulness in life. They were not disappointed in the college nor 
was the college disappointed in them. They "made good" in college and their after- 
lives were but a continuation of the "making good" process. 

The College has always stood for high ideals and a well-developed, well-rounded, 
symmetrical manhood and womanhood. It aims to develop strong, forceful, resource- 
ful citizens; people who are useful in their community, who can bring things to pass, 
who are positive and constructive. This is possible only by a training that touches 
the physical, the mental, the moral, and the religious. 

The denominational school that does not have this ideal had better close its doors 
and turn over its students to a church-school that does have positive convictions and 
does stand for the truth. 


The college has passed through some hard struggles in common with other simi- 
lar institutions, but each time came out a better and stronger school. The disastrous 
fire of 1904, in a few short hours laid low the material Lebanon Valley and caused 
many hearts to give up in despair. But from the ashes grew up a greater, a more 
beautiful and a more efficient college than ever dreamed of before, so that the fire 
was not an unmixed evil. 

Our work is divided into five departments; College, Academy, Music, Oratory, 
and Art. 

Lebanon Valley is a good school with a fine faculty, a splendid student body, 
new modern buildings, well-equipped Laboratories, a workable Library, new Gym- 
nasium, a large campus, an athletic field, a track, good moral and religious surround- 
ings, excellent church privileges, a healthful climate, and is in close touch with large 
cities by steam and trolley lines, all of which make it a desirable place to study. 

The recent improvements and repairs to all buildings, the presenting of a large 
Howard clock to the college by the class of 1913, the equipping of a new gymnasium 
by the Alumni, and a general desire to cooperate as trustees, faculty and students, have 
created a most delightful college spirit, and have helped to swell the number of students 
to 305 which is a twenty-six per cent increase over last year. 

The greatest growth this year is in the college and the music departments. Now 
what of the Future ? 

Shall we rest on our oars ? Shall we take life easy ? Shall we be satisfied with 
past successes? Or, shall we go forward? Shall we undertake greater things? Shall 
we keep pace with the times? Shall we lead or be led? Paul said: "Forgetting the 
things that are behind I press forward." That should be our motto. 

The thousands of young people waiting to be trained, who will go to college 
somewhere, and who ought to go to a Christian college ; our obligations as a church 
to train young people; our ability in brains and money to meet that need, should be 
a mighty challenge to our intelligence, generosity, consecration, and business acumen. 

To meet the growing demand, besides our eight buildings and present endowment 
fund, additional buildings, and several new departments. 

In harmony with the action of the Board of Trustees the authorities are now 
in the midst of campaign to raise an endowment fund of two hundred thousand dol- 
lars by June, 1916, when the college will celebrate it's fiftieth anniversary with be- 
coming ceremonies. Those cooperating, seeing this splendid opportunity to increase the 
efficiency of the institution, and to multiply it's usefulness, with heroic courage and 
determination will stand together to reach this much desired end. 

Now, ought this be done? We answer, it ought. If it ought, it can be; it must 
be; it will be for we have determined to go forward. 

The times demand the addition of at least three new departments of work, 
namely Agriculture, Engineering, and Domestic Science. The great numbers of 
young people who are seeking this special training will find it somewhere. If we are 
wise, we will make the necessary preparation to accommodate these splendid young 
students and then say "come to old Lebanon Valley" and they will come. M'^e icill 
be wise. 


Judging from the present growing student body our dormitories will soon have 
to be enlarged. The Woman's dormitory was filled to over-flowing this year, and 
the Men's dormitory was nearly full. The Dining-hall is much crowded for com- 
fort and from present indications will not accommodate those wanting to board there 
next year. 

In the midst of these crowded conditions what shall we do? Shall we sit down 
and cry in this prosperity and say that we can not handle so many students. Shall 
we send them home, or elsewhere? No, no, again we will be wise and meet the 

Somebody will build us a dining hall large enough to meet our need, while the 
present dining room will be made into dormitory rooms to accommodate more girls. 
Besides this, we shall be compelled to make an addition to the Women's Dormitory. 

We now need our own electric light plant, to furnish light for all our buildings, 
and a new grandstand on the Athletic field. We feel sure that some of our friends 
will help us out with these improvements. Our student body is growing rapidly and 
we have a large constituency from which to draw. 

If we handle our students judiciously and the splendid college spirit continues 
to prevail, we will have five hundred students in a few years. 

How can these things be done? BY HEARTY COOPERATION.

^O back with us to the fall of 1911, when the class to whom 3-011 are indebted 
for this publication entered dear old Lebanon Valley, to take a look at her 
Athletics. In the life of every institution or state there comes a time when 
harried by its enemies or ground by oppression it must either rise in its strength or be 
trampled in the mire. To just this crisis had come the athletics of Lebanon Valley 
College. Her football team was almost a joke in comparison with the teams of her 
sister colleges. Basket-ball had passed from existence as an authorized sport and her 
baseball alone could claim recognition enough to justify the continuance of her name 
on the athletic chart. 

The spirit of sportsmanship displayed in the face of the obstacles then existing 
speaks well for the men who bore the bumps on the gridiron but certainly far greater 
credit is due the friends of the game who bore the responsibility of placing the team 
on the field. The very fact that the loyal few could not be moved one iota, from the 
stand they had taken, by difficulty or obstacle surely augured a brighter day for Leban- 
on Valley in the athletic world. 

When the school year of 1912-13 was ushered in the crisis was at hand and the 
time fitting. "The Athletic Association had been reorganized and a compulsory athletic 
fee placed in statute on the books. Then too Dr. Gossard, the new president, arrived 
on the scene and called the old guard together. The task of placing a football team 
on the field was before them for only five members of the 1911 varsity returned 
to college and not a single other man of varsity calibre was in sight. They combined 
their efforts and placed on the field a football team which facing a heavy schedule 
scored half a hundred more points than its opponents, battled a rival college to a 
standstill on foreign soil, and decisively defeated another; an achievement of which 
we can be justly proud. Then a representative basket-ball team was placed in the 
cage which made a remarkable record considering the fact that its practice floor was 
situated five miles from home and practically all contests had to be staged in foreign 
cages. Going one step farther a track was built on the athletic field and the first 
relay team in the history of the institution was sent to the Intercollegiate Relay Race 
Carnival held on Franklin Field by the University of Pennsylvania, and won a place 
in their event. 

Now passing on to the year 1913-14 we are beginning to see past dreams realized. 
Through the generosity of the Alumni we can boast of as finel\' an equipped gymnasium 
as one can wish. We have a physical director, a product of the Springfield Y. M. C. A. 
Training School, who is very ably prepared to aid us in our forward march of things 
athletic. An examination of the records contained herein of her various teams will 
show a decided advance. Surely Lebanon Valley is fast coming to her own in the 
athletic world and the day is nigh when the alumni of this institution can point with 
pride to the records made by her teams. 


Our Coach 

Mr. Roy Jones Guyer was graduated from Lebanon Valley in 1908. While in 
college he was actively engaged in all phases of collegiate work and was an excellent 
combination of the student and athlete. 

Leaving here with his A.B. degree, he 
taught and coached several years until he 
finally decided to identify himself with phys- 
ical directorate work. To amply prepare him- 
self he entered Springfield Y. M. C. A. Train- 
ing School and received his B.P.E. degree 
there in June, 1913. 

Coming here in September, 1913, he took 
charge of all branches of physical work. On 
the football field he is a master. He can 
direct play, but more than that he can actu- 
ally demonstrate just how a thing should be 
done. When we recall the record of the past 
season, and the enthusiasm of all who were 
interested in the team and the loyalty of the 
players themselves we can feel the personality 
of the man himself. 

Those unacquainted with Lebanon Val- 
ley football and those who feel that football 
men and roughnecks are synonymous should 
visit our gridiron during practice hour or 
come to see the games. Dirty work or any- 
thing except clean, straight-forward, hard 
football will not be tolerated. Then again 
you may be surprised but never do we leave 
the dressing room without invoking the aid of 
God above to help us to play the part of 

Another quality which "Coach" possesses 
is the ability to adapt his plays to the ma- 
terial at hand and to develop new plays par- 
ticularly suited to his men. 

Finally he is able to handle men. With- 
out being driven, coaxed or cussed the men 
forgot all possible grievances and enmities and 
soon found themselves working with but a 
single aim — to uphold the standard of Leban- 
on Valley. With such a leader we have no 
need to worry about the coaching of Lebanon 
Valley teams.

^TT^ITH as bright prospects and as favorable conditions as we have yet seen, the 
I I I 1913 football season at Lebanon Valley opened. With Roy j. Guyer at 
V^ -X the head of the coaching department every one was satisfied that that work 
would be well taken care of, for his reputation came before him. Then there were 
Captain Strickler, Snavely, Statton and Lerew, veterans of two seasons besides Mack- 
ert, DeHuff, Pell, VonBereghy, Evans and Mickey from the 1912 varsity squad, 
as a nucleus to build upon. While among the newcomers were such men as Wheelock, 
Donohue, HoUinger, E. Snavely, Loomis, Wenrich and Schwartz and enough others 
to form a regular squad twenty eight strong. 


Great things were expected and surely no one was disappointed when the team 
journeyed to Carlisle and held "Warners Braves" to a score of twenty six points — • 
the lowest on record. 

Captain Strickler played a great game despite the fact that he injured his foot 
very badly early in the contest. His running back of punts was one of the features. 
The work of C. Snavely, who continually outpunted Welsh, aided L. V. materially 
in keeping the Indians from crossing her goal. 


Foot Ball 


The agriculturalists from Penbrook were the attraction for the following Satur- 
day to give the coach an opportunity to try out the new material and to work off 
the effects of the Indian game. The heat of the sun and the unimportance of the 
contest instilled a spirit of mercy into the wearers of the blue and they let Penbrook 
down with 27 points. 


On Saturday October the fourth we met Bucknell university at Lewisburg in 
another practice game, Bucknell getting the practice however and we the bumps. "The 
work of DeHuff was the one redeeming feature of the visitors line play." "Wheelock 
and Lerew played a hard game and fought pluckily until the final whistle blew. They 
carried the ball continually for Lebanon Valley and made many good gains." Barring 
the forward pass, we could have held Bucknell's heavy team to a comparatively close 
score but they were quick to take advantage of the officials interpretations of the rules 
and we were powerless to hold them under those conditions. 

Foot Ball 


The next home attraction was Pierce B. C. from Philadelphia. The game was 
decidedly more interesting than the score of 68 ; would indicate. The Pierce boys 
were a game gentlemanly bunch of fellows who put up a plucky fight throughout but 
the odds were too great. 


On the eighteenth day of October the conquerors of Albright came down from 
Wilkes Barre bent on taking our scalp. "The visitors were heavy and many were in 
doubt as to the outcome but from the first whistle Hillman was outclassed and were 
at no time dangerous." The line was on the alert and shifted with lightening speed 
while the back field, with Snavely at fidl, Wheelock and Donohue at halves and Lerew 
at quarter, displayed great offensive power. Mackert plunged through right tackle 
for the first score and Snavely, Donohue and Lerew followed with five more touch 
downs in rapid succession. Wheelock kicked the goals. 


Foot Ball 


Very fittingly did we celebrate the first anniversary of the trouncing we gave 
Albright, when on the 25th of October we journeyed to Chestertown and defeated 
Washington College 14 to 0. Although played beneath a sunny southern sky the 
gridiron was virtually a lake of mud, caused by the excessive rainfall. 

"From the very start Lebanon Valley took the offensive receiving Washingtons 
kickoff and running the ball back to midfield." "Time after time the dreadnaught, 
Mackert, steamed through the Washington line, while the dusky skinned a-borigine, 
Wheelock, wriggled and squirmed through the maroon tacklers." The game played 
and won on foreign soil, meant much to the boys who wore the blue for the past three 
seasons but when all this is related the half has not been told. 

October 24. Left Annville on the "Queen of the Valley". We sang songs and 
made ourselves a general nuisance on the train. Arrived in Phila, had dinner at (the 
back door of) the Bellevue Stratford, looked over the "Fair Ones" and departed on 
another "Swell" train for the "Sunny South". Not much sun, rains all afternoon. 
Luck changes. We are hustled off the swell accommodation and are bunched together 
in a car where one side is reserved for "Niggers." Another change and we are off 
on the last lap for "Niggerland". Arrived in Chestertown after dark and was just 
in time to join the last rush of the famished. After supper we go down town where 
Von Bereghy makes a hit with the daughter of the burly street sweeper. Coach 
Guyer herds us together and drives to bed at 9:30 P.M. Good N-i-g-h-t.

October 25. Arose at S.JU :;nd had the scrumptious repast of two pieces of toast 
and one glass of milk, which somebody named Breakfast. Raining, so I went back to 
the "hay" and finished my snooze. Dinner bell rang and called us to another "Dim- 
inutive Salubrious". Afternoon ; we dress in our togs and proceed to waddle in the 
mud with the Washington boys. Recollections of the game, faint ; was knocked 
out by a mud ball thrown from one of the players shoes. After we finally dug our- 
selves out of the mud, we found that we had them beat, 14-0. Half-dressed, we make 
one grand hustle in the only conveyance of the town, the velocity of which was ludicr- 
ous, for the boat. No sooner are we aboard than the boat lifts anchor and we are ofE 
on the home stretch. Mickey and Lerew slip one over on the Purser and travel in 
state-room luxury, while the rest of us are compelled to take steerage or swim. 

We haul to port in Baltimore at 11.30 P.M. Are hustled on a street-car to the 
Pennsy station just in time to get the 30th century limited for Harrisburg. Coach 
Guyer compelled us to "trot the aisle" to keep from getting stiff. We arrive in Harris- 
burg at two-thirty A.M. with an appetite 27 hours old. Manager Snavely slips us 
two bits and tells us to purchase a meal and a bed and not forget to be on time for 
the 8.30 train to Annville in the morning. Manager Snavely and I have a little 
philosophical argument in which coach awards me the decision, but no more money for 
a bed, I try to repose in the Station but the cop thinks that I am some wayward 
creature and chases me up. We walk the streets and otherwise diverse our time until 
the train arrives at 6.45. While boarding the train for the home stretch I was so 
utterly exhausted that I had to be assisted and 1 found out later that two girls that 
were to visit Lebanon Valley that da\' thought that I was intoxicated. Well we 
arrived home just in time to Miss Breakfast and too tired to make for dinner, I went 
to bed and was waked up for supper. "I love the cows and chickens, but this is the 
life for me". 


Foot Ball 

With five varsity men in the side lines the substitutes made an excellent showing 
against Muhlenburg at Allentown. Despite the fact that we vs^ere outw^eighed ten 
pounds to the man, the heavy maroon and grey team, did little after the first quarter. 
We pulled together, and during the second quarter Muhlenburg scored but six points 
vi'hile the last half was decidedly in our favor. "From the kickoff beginning the third 
period until the final whistle Lebanon Valley seemed to grow stronger and only the 
stubborn defense of the Muhlenburg warriors in the shadow of their goal posts kept 
the visitors from scoring". 

Journeying to Carlisle November 28th, accompanied by a fair band of loyal 
supporters, we gave Dickinson a gruelling contest for their last home game. Although 
defeated by the score of 38 to 12. "The opposing team put up a stubborn resistance 
throughout and was always dangerous when in possession of the ball." "Each team 
scored twice during the second quarter. Lebanon Valley secured the ball on downs 
near midfield. Wheelock made seven yards through center, and a forward pass from 
Lerew to Mackert covered the intervening distance for a touchdown. Lebanon Valley 
started off with a rush in the third period. The fleet Redskin, Wheelock, who starred 
at half for the visitors caught a punt on his eight yard line and ran the length of the 
field for a touchdown". Dickinson recognized in us a worthy foe and every one was 
satisfied that the contest was an excellent example of the best in football. 



Foot Ball 


With her team badly crippled, Lebanon Valley journeyed to Lancaster and 
fought F.&M. tooth and nail a 14 to score. "The game was hard fought from start 
to finish and at no time was the outcome certain. The field made wet and soggy 
by the drizzling rain, prevented the use of the forward pass or open football and only 
straight football was possible. Every supporter who followed the team to Lancaster 
felt confident that the tale would have been different had the cripples on the side line 
been in the game. We are looking forward to the day when we can meet the F.&M. 
collegians on equal terms to demonstrate that we are their equal if not their superiors. 


With her crippled team shaken and shifted so badly that the players themselves 
scarcely knew on which side they were playing and Wheelock on the sidelines we met 
Warners proteges on our native heath. The game was dull and uninteresting up 
until the last quarter. With the score 10 to against us and but a few minutes of 
play remaining Wheelock donned a uniform and entered the game. His presence 
fired the entire team with enthusiasm and for the first time during the game they 
showed what they were capable of doing. With confidence restored and with re- 
juvenated efforts the boys in "Blue" plowed through the Indians and tore around 
their ends with such ferocity that in the remaining four minutes defeat was changed 
to victory.

Too often in the heat of victory the men who by self-sacrifice and patient toil 
have made the accomplishment possible, are forgotten. Such is too often the case in 
respect to the reserve football team. With little recognition or hope of reward and 
knowing that only some extraordinary event can place them on the varsity they report 
night after night for their regular hammering. Don the uniform of the ordinary 
scrub yourself and take his place a few evenings and you will be more able to appreciate 
his services. Now not forgetting the men whose loyalty and patience has in a large 
measure been responsible for the success of the past season let us show our appreciation 
of their services so that they may be justly proud of the insignia they have earned the 
right to wear.

So long, Old Pal, your day has gone; 

Another hero's coming on. 

He's shy half an ear, with a nose knocked askew. 

But we'll cheer for him as we did for you. 

Where once we thrilled with the slam and the bunt, 

We'll now be cheering the end run and punt. 

So away with the box score, can the long fly — 

For the centre's got the guard down gouging out his eye. 

The Collinses, Bakers, the Macks and McGraws, 
Will now fade away while the Brickleys break jaws. 
Where once the base hit ruled the festive box score. 
We'll now pipe the line plunge through oceans of gore. 
And we'll cheer when the tackle blacks both the ends' eyes, 
And the guard grabs the full-back and breaks both his thighs. 
At the half-back's swift line plunge loud paeans will boom, 
Then they'll sweep up his vitals with a shovel and broom. 

Where we once cheered the home run, we're now cheering gains 
As they drape o'er the goal posts the quivering remains. 
Though north winds ma)' blow and the cold makes us shiver. 
We'll applaud when the guard jabs a rib through his liver. 
The guy who once thrilled at the crack of the bat 
Will now cheer human fragments gathered up in a hat. 
So away with your baseball, and cheer, students, cheer. 
While the tackle takes time out to find his left ear.

Basket Ball, Season 1913-14 

C. F. Schmidt, Capt. 

J. A. Walters, Mgr. 

^~~~~^UST ten years ago the first basket-ball team in the history of Lebanon Valley 
G I College was put on the road. Struggling under adverse conditions she has 
^^^^'^ maintained a team each season since then although some of those teams had 
to be labeled before they were recognized by the student body. 

With the completion of the Alumni Gymnasium in December, 1913, the one 
thing most necessary for the existence of basket-ball became a reality. The result 
being that basket-ball has been reorganized and placed on a level with the two major 
sports at this institution. The team now has the backing of the student body for every 
student knows that every member of the team is a bonafide student with weekly grades 
above seventy percent standing on the record books. 


^%iiar^' ^^ '^ ' ^ c^<- 




Early in December Coach Guyer made the first call for basket-ball and a wealth 
of material responded. Owing to the fact that only Capt. Schmidt and Strickler 
of last year's varsity squad heeded the call, and the number of new men who reported, 
the competition for positions was strenuous and the problem that faced the Coach 
was difficult. 

By defeating the Lebanon Y. M. C. A. quintet 60 to 25 we very fittingl\' intro- 
duced our new gymnasium to basket-ball, December 17th. 

Only two days after returning from the Holiday recess the team journeyed to 
Swarthmore and Lehigh. At Swarthmore the large floor and the out of bounds 
rule contributed largely to our downfall and Swarthmore romped away with the game 
40 to 20. The next evening saw us in a dancing pavillion down at Lehigh. The 
very slippery floor was more conducive to the ridiculous, than the sublime and Lehigh 
won 63 to 15. 

The next game was played with Susquehanna at Selingsgrove Jan. 14. Lack of 
team work on our part was mainly responsible for the defeat. Score 33 to 11. 

Journeying to Huntington Jan. 23 we met the strong Juniata five. To be de- 
feated only 38 to 24 by a team that went up to State College and came away with a 
victory speaks well of the wearers of the BLUE and White. 

January 28 Lafayette came here and after putting up a vigorous fight were 
obliged to return to Easton with the short end of a 28 to 21 score. The game was 
very interesting being the first college game Lebanon Valley ever played at home. 
Loomis and Strickler did excellent floor work, Chas. caging six baskets and Polly four. 

Mt. St. Mary's beat us 47 to 23 at Emmitsburg. 

Juniata came here on the 13th of February. The date seemed to hoodoo us. 
Strickler was injured and forced to retire early in the contest while an invisible some- 
thing seerned to prevent the ball from passing through the magic ring when tossed 
by a L. V. man. Our passing was superior to the visitors giving us more trials at 
the basket but with less success for the pleasing end of the 29 to 20 score belonged 
to Juniata. 

February 24th the stalwart Susquehanna five came to Annville to get revenge 
for the defeat at our hands in 1913. They took every opportunity to show the great 
similarity- between the scarlet hue of their jerseys and the explosives tied up within 
them and flared up many times at the referee to their own discredit. We defeated 
them 25 to 16. 

The last trip of the season included Easton and Allentown, February 15 and 
26. Both games were lost by the same score 39 to 22. The men on the team spoke 
well of the treatment they received. Kind words help, so let us not be negligent but 
treat the visiting team as guests not as opponents except on the field of battle. 

Gloriously did we close our first real basket-ball season by defeating Muhlen- 
burg's excellent team in the Alumni Gymnasium March 12 by a score of 28 to 27. 
Moul taking the place of Capt. Schmidt covered himself with glory. Both teams 
passed well and played a game seldom equalled. Acting Capt. Strickler played a 
game which he well may be proud to refer to as his last appearance in the cage for 
his Alma Mater which he has so loyally served for the past four years.

Base Ball Season, 1914 

nEBANON Valley College never before opened baseball season with a larger 
squad or more promising material than in the spring of 1914. We are 
blessed with a pitching staff of league calibre both in number of twirlers 
and the quality of ball they are able to pitch. In fact so many of our men 
wear toe plates as to cause some of our curious opponents to ask if our team are not all 
pitchers. Captain Stickell is pitching the greatest ball of his career. White, with a 
record of eighteen strickouts at this early stage of the season, shows great promise 
and no one can predict what greater things he will do when he gets into mid season 
form. Then young "Gus" Zeigler won the only game he was called upon to do box 
service. And finally Schwartz, at Rock Hill College, showed his metal by striking 
out 12 batsmen and allowing but two hits. In this manner I might continue to 
enumerate further the men on the team who have done service on the mound but, 
since we have not had occasion to use them I'll cease this and tell you how we won 
or lost our several games this season. 

Journeying to Mercersburg on the 4th of April, we in what they termed a close 
game, defeated them 8 to 4. 

Then followed a series of hard luck as Lehigh, Dickinson, St. John's, and Fordham 
University cancelled for one cause or another and we suffered from idleness. 

Finally on the 1 8th of April, Philadelphia College of Pharmaci,' came here to be 
drubbed 12 to O, being outhit 16 to i. 

We then started south, our first stop being at Gallaudet College in Washington. 
The very hot day had a bad effect on our men, in spite of this the Washington papers 
credited us thus, "The Northerners plainly showed mid-season form." White pitched 
the game and won 8 to 2. Our treatment at Gallaudet was ideal. 

At Washington College, Gus Zeigler, working on the mound, won his game, 9 
to 7. The game was long and rather loosely played, but intensely interesting through- 

We ne.xt met Rock Hill at Ellicot City, Md. The weather was ideal. Coach 
Guyer was in a quandary as to whom to use in the box, as Capt. Stickell's pitching 
member was not in trim. Schwartz, as 4th. string man, was called upon and pitched 
a wonderful game, stricking out an even dozen, allowing but two hits and winning 
2 to I. 


Finally on the 25th day of April, we were forced to play the last game of the trip 
at Mt. St. Joseph's. The day was dark and foggy and the grounds absolutely unfit 
for anything but water polo, while a drizzling rain fell all during the afternoon. We 
lost the game 5 to 3. 

The next game was played with the Harrisburg Tri-State, and lost 3 to o. 
Stickell pitched a fine game, allowing but 4 hits. At home on May the 2nd with 
White pitching, we won 10 to 7, from Annville A. C. 

Journeying to the City of New York on the 7th of May we defeated Fordham 
University for 8 innings, but the odds were against and we lost out in the gth, 6 to 5. 
Stickell did wonderful work under the circumstances, and deserved to win. 

St. John's College in Brooklyn was to be played on the 8th, but rain kept us idle 
and gave us time to go sight-seeing in the big city. 

Saturday May gth, we completely outclassed Muhlenberg College at Allentown. 
White, in the box, had the Maroon and Gray at his mercy, fanning eighteen men. 
Occasionally he eased up a bit to give his fielders something to waken them up, but at 
no time allowed them enough to give them even hopes of scoring. Only five men 
reached first-base, and one got as far around as second. The score — 5 to 0. 

Susquehanna came here May 15. Stickell pitched good ball, but his support was 
rather loose. We won the game 7 to 3. 

Saturday, May 17, we played the Lebanon team on their grounds. White pitched 
good ball and would have scored a shutout but for the ground rules. The score — 
9 to 3. 

Susquehanna was not convinced that they were not in our class until May 23. 
They were full of confidence, having beaten Bucknell the day previous, but our 
"wrecking crew" had their clubs working and we romped away with the game 7 to 1.

Surely the young child Track at Lebanon Valley shows promise of becoming 
quite a help to his mother when he is full grown. In his first year he made a very 
creditable showing in the "Middle States Intercollegiate Conference" and is sure to 
make a still better showing this year at the same meeting. When our Relay Team 
defeated a field of 6 competitors at the University of Penn's Relay Race Carnival 
on the 25th day of April before a crowd of 22,000 people, they surely impressed the 
name of old Lebanon Valley on many a poor wanderer who never dreamed of such a 
place. By a great race the event was won in three minutes, 41% seconds. Gallaudet 
and Maryland Agricultural finishing in the order mentioned while Ursinus, Dela- 
ware, and Villanova completed the field. 

Strickler running first, touched off Wheelock in second place. Wheelock con- 
tinuing to fall back, handed the baton to Dave in fourth place and twenty yards be- 
hind his man. Evans ran a wonderful race pulling up to third place, then to second 
and finally touched off — Mickey almost abreast his man for the lead. Great credit 
is due "Bill" for his generalship. He hounded the heels of the pacemaker until the 
home stretch when he dusted by him, and won his race by a margin of 20 yards. 

Each member of the team was presented with a fine gold watch and the school 
was presented with a banner as laurels of victory.

Relay Team 

At the "Middle States Intercollegiate Athletic Meet" held at Lancaster, May 
i6, 1914, Lebanon Valley College showed her class by taking second honors while 
competing in a field composed of Lafayette Rutgers, Haverford, Washington and 
Jefferson, Gettysburg, Franklin and Marshall, Swarthmore, Stevens, New York Uni- 
versity, Lehigh, and Dickinson. 

Captain VonBereghy in winning a dozen points for us established two new 
records. He hurled the discus 120 feet 4j4 inches bettering the record he made last 
year by 2 feet, and in winning the shot-put he set the mark at 43 feet 9 inches. The 
other two points were added to his total by taking third place in the hammer throw. 

"Dave" Evans showed his speed by clipping a full second off the "Conference" 
record when he won the 220-j'ard dash in 22% seconds. "Dave" also pushed his man 
hard in the 100-yard dash but was beaten out of his medal by an unfortunate decision 
of the judges. 

Mickey and Eichelberger were the only other men to qualify for the finals as 
Wheelock was disqualified after winning his preliminaries in the hurdle races. Mickey 
won third place in the Discus-throw and Eichelberger ran a beautiful race in the 
2 miles, holding second place by a margin of 20 yards until he fell in the last lap. 
Had the fates been at all favorable that beautiful cup, the Emblem of Victory, would 
now be resting at Lebanon Valley. 



Two Varsity Fours have been working out on the Quittapahilla e\er since the 
ice-jams broke up. A regetta is now being arranged for Commencement week. It 
will include many events, and will consume an entire day. The coaching and manage- 
ment have been placed in the hands of Captain Park Lutz, an experienced river Pilot.

Boxing has always been frowned upon by the college authorities at L. V. C, 
because it is believed that ultimately a few of the boxers might become professional 
prize-fighters. However Prof. Guyer has held several matches in the Alumni Gym- 
nasium during the past season. These bouts, always attended by large crowds, have 
been held under the auspices of the Y. M. C. A. and the proceeds turned into the 
Summer conference Fund. 

On the night of Jan. 16, Prof. Wanner and Prof. Grimm, both of the light- 
weight class, fought a four-round draw. 

On Lincoln's birthday Prof. Shroyer, our white hope, knocked out Dr. Lehman 
in the eighth round of a finish fight. Our champion has since retired from the ring. 

Prof. Shenk and Prof. Derrickson were arrested for disturbing the peace, after 
the first round of their bout several weeks ago. They are scheduled to meet soon 

Prof. Kirkland was arrested and found guilty of betting on the last bout. 

Bag Punching 

This sport found its way into Lebanon Valley athletics when the Faculty Com- 
mittee after due deliberation decided to jom the Pan-Hellenic Bag and Jaw Punchers 
association of America. It is indulged chiefl\' by the faculty. The purpose of the 
organization is to develop the manly art of self-defense. 

Prof. R. D. McD. Kirkland is director of the sport and has quite an enthusiastic 
group of students. Prof. Wanner is taking the course as part of his post-graduate 
work. S. H. Derrickson is the most advanced pupil at present. Proof of this was 
shown recently in the Biology laboratory when he punched a frog three successive 
blows without sidestepping. Prof. Lehman takes it for his health. Prof. Grimm is 
making a series of investigations to verify the principle that the co-efficient of ex- 
pansion of ivory is directly proportional to the acceleration of the bag divided by the 
rigidity of the concrete floor.

What We Have Done 

Rome was not built in a da^', so we have been told. It takes time for great things 
to be accomplished, as well as infinite care, anxiety, and endurance. As was true in 
the building of this great city, so it is also true of the history of the modest but none 
the less illustrious class of 1914. Four long years and an endless amount of care 
and endurance were required to complete this work. 

At this time we are reminded of a certain fact that one of our professors told us. 
Although this varies from the subject, yet it applies to our class. It is, in short, that 
one can never tell the nature of a plant by looking at the seed, unless, of course, one has 
met with that kind of seed before. This has been verified by the class of '14 for its 
equal was never met with before in Lebanon Valley. When she was in her infancy, 
away back in 1910, people prophesied for her a brilliant future, although at this time 
only the most learned people were capable of judging. Great scholars could dimly, 
but surely, foresee the marvelous bistort' of the afore-mentioned class. But what is the 
use to talk like this! Just let me tell some^of the things we, as a class, did, for actions 
always speak louder than words. 

To all of us our Freshman year was a perfect delight. There were victories 
followed by "feeds" such as only freshmen can have; for, naturally, we won every- 
thing in which we participated. Our Banquet was a decided success and was en- 
joyed by all. Although the Sophs did capture a few of our boys, the roll was com- 
plete when the time came for the banquet to begin. 

The following year, we returned to L. V. as Sophomores, still happy and full 
oi grit, notwithstanding the fact that, as the story goes, the Sophs are the outcast 
class. 'Tis true that with our victories came defeats, for we were greatly outnumbered. 
Even the freshmen had to admit that what we lacked in quantity we had in quality. 
V\ ishing to do something that would compensate our defeats we won the interclass 

But hastening en, we enter our junior year. Truer to the White and Blue than 
ever, we continue to accomplish great things. We strive toward our goal with new 
zeal. Our motto "Dum Vivimus, Vivamus" is manifested in the life of every Junior. 
Our class play "The Private Secretary" Showed that we had ability in the dramatic 
world ; while our Bizarre won for us the highest praise. 

And now we near the end of our college life. A short Senior year and that 
which we for years we anticipated, is realized. There is a tinge of sadness in our 
hearts as we look back and realize that it is truly the end. We have steadily climbed 
to the top, and as we pause for a moment we see '14's past and present disappear, while 
yonder lies her future. 

Then make that future good and true, 
An honor to the White and Blue. 
May we have courage now to face 
Life's battle; May we win the race. 
Stout of heart and eager-eyed 
With Alma Mater as our guide. 
And still as in the past, be true 
To '14 and the White and Blue.

What We Have Done 


^EPTE?iIBER 13, 1911, will ever be a memorable date at Lebanon V^alley 
f(;r on that day the brilliant class of 1915 appeared on the campus. How 
the Sophs did gaze nt the distinguished looking 'greenies' walking about the 
campus as though they meant business. The class was organized in the old Academy 
building and immediately set to work. The Sophs, thinking we looked rather slow, 
vve~e in no hurry to put up their posters. Imagine their surprise and rage when bright 
and early one n^orning, the frtihiiicn posters stared them in the face. A class fight 
followed and our opponents realized that the strength of the 'Frcshies' was great. 
The Sophs who never dreamed of being beaten, were suddenh' brought to their senses 
when they were hauled over the line in the tug-of-war, si.xteen times. Their anger and 
sorrow they carefully kept from all except the old seniors, who decided that the sophs 
should not be humiliated again. The only thing to be done was not to allow the 
football game to be placed, because nerl}- all the football stars were in the freshmen 
class and the victory would be certain for the "greenies." Thus we had no football 
game. After coming back from the Thanksgiving vacation, the Sophs suffered a severe 
shock when they found the "freshies" were on their way to York for their banquet. 
At this deed their wrath knew no bounds. They quickly sent the important Sophs 
after us but to no avail, they returned empt\'-handed. The Sophs then tried to work 
out a new scheme by putting up posters on us. The freshies, equal to all occasions, 
had them down in less than an hour, to the disgust of the Sophs. The freshies were 
victors in the class fight which followed. The sophs suffered one more defeat in the 
baseball game. By the end of the first j'ear at school we had proved ourselves loyal to 
our Alma Mater and returned rs sophs the next year bound to retain our honor as 
being the best class of all. 

Upon returning to school the next fall imagine our disappointment when instead 
of finding, as was reported at least fifty Freshmen, we saw only six or eight. Even 
the faculty was alarmed. Something had to be done. The "Profs" set out in all 
directions hunting Freshmen, finally they found enough to form a class and they 
organized. These Freshies seemed to be a harmless and youthful bunch, and we, 
realizing that they needed experience, took them along with us and made them put 
up our posters about themselves. The tug-of-war was an easy victory for us by a 

score of 7 — 1. Discouraged and disappointed in themselves they decided to beat us in 
the football game. We went into the contest against the mad rush of the Freshies, 
but the only thing they could do was to give way to our men and give us the victory. 
Realizing at last what a fast pace the Sophs had set and being tired of the race, the 
Freshies realized their last stand was in the winning of the debate. The Juniors also 
decided that the Freshies should win but, alas, in spite of all the work spent by the 
Juniors in writing the Freshmen debates, the Judges decided in favor of the Sophs. 

We indeed had been cruel masters, taking everything from the "greeners," so 
we let them have the pleasure of going to Harrisburg for a banquet. The last victory 
in the baseball game filled out our lot of victories and made us the first Sophomore 
class of every and any j'ear to win all the fights. 

Not only were we remarkable in the winning of class contests, but also possessed 
great musical and dramatical ability, as was displayed when we gave very successfully 
the minstrel show and with it a scene from Midsummer Nights Dream. This was 
an original idea and was enjoyed by all. We did not let pleasure go before duty and 
we planned to come back to school with the dignity of upper-classmen. 


As Juniors, realizing that we must begin to think more seriously of college life 
than ever before, we returned to school certain that as we conquered the battles of the 
first two years of college life so would we be the victors during the rest of our college 

For the second time our dramatic talent was proved when we gave the Junior 
Play, "A Scrap of Paper," which was a success for even the dignified "Seniors" en- 
joyed it. We realize that our responsibilities have become greater and now is the 
time to take a more serious view of life and so following our motto "Spes sibi 
quis-que," we hope that each one of us will go into the battles of life relying only on 
himself and make the world conscious of his activities.

Harry M. Bender. 

Annville, Pa. 

"Hap," "Chief." 

"It's a fit night for a murder." 

Born one mile north of Annville, Jan. 31, 
1890; Prepared at L. V. Academy; Entered 
college 1911; Historical-Political course; 
Kalozetean Lit. Soc. Vice-President ( 1 ) ; 
Treasurer (3) ; Class Treasurer (3) ; Tennis 
Manager (3); Glee Club (2, 3); Football 
(1) ; Class football (2) ; Caste, "A Scrap of 
Paper" ; Future profession, Minister. 

Mr. Bender deems himself the unconquerable creature of our class, and perhaps 
he is; it is not for his biographer to say. We will say for "Chief" however that he is 
some big noise. Whether the propensity for loudness is inherited or whether it is 
acquired we are unable to say. At any rate it seems to be more or less of a dominant 
quality in his make-up. 

Harry is rather a precocious chap and it is hard to determine just what to expect 
from him. We are inclined to believe that some day a great singer will evolve from 
this little "burg" of Annville and in letters tall we will see the white lights of Broad- 
way blaze forth in one grand light and spell to the waiting world the name of its 
popular singer hero — Bender. He is one of our husky athletes and excels as a sprinter. 

His work in the "Dash"-ers gained for him the college championship. As to his 
virtues they are innumerable, his vices, few, and his bad habits so carefully hidden 
that he shines as an example for all. 


Gideon L. Blouch. 

Annville, Pa. 

"Gid," "Rough." 

" Thri (-foinflis (/cuius and oiit-foi/r/li sheer 

Born at Lebanon, Pa., May 12, 1S%; Pre- 
pared at Lebanon \'alley Academ\- ; Entered 
college September 1Q12; Historical-Political 
course; Philo Lit. Soc. ; Y. ^L C. A.; United 
Brethren ; Minister. 

Who is this \oung man possessing such a noble and prepossessing countenance 
as we see. By the deep look in his eye and the highness of his brow, we come to the 
conclusion that it can be no other than Mr. Gideon L. Blouch. A most promising 
minister who does not drink, chew, or smoke — or swear? One who studies his books 
because he is interested and because he is inquisitive to know what comes next. A good 
student, a conscientious student, a faithful student. So have we briefly surveyed the 

However, Gideon is slightly inclined to be a bit rough in his treatment of those 
around him. Not in saying harsh words but by striking hard blows does he some- 
times injure his friends. Gn the basket-ball floor he acquired the nickname "Rough" 
and tile appellation is liable to stick to him. His actions are always unpremeditated 
and he ne\er means harm e\en if at times he does appear dangerous. ^Ve pass o\er 
this phase of Gideon's character and only wish to consider the more readable part of 
his biograph\. His good deeds are too numerous to be enumerated, so we do not wish 
to consider them here. As a minister he is without a peer, for his oratorical and busi- 
ness ability are unquestioned. 


Paul J. Bowman. 

Middletown, Pa. 

"J most conscuiiti'jus fclloiv" 

Bom at Middletown, Pa., April 9, 1893; 
Prepared at Middletown H. S. ; Entered col- 
lege September 1911; Chemical-Biological 
course; Philo Lit. Soc. Class Historian (2); 
President (3) ; Y. M. C. A. Biological Field 
Club, Math. Round Table ; Deutscher Verein ; 
President of Ministerial Association ; United 
Brethren; Y. M. C. A. Work. 

"One who is an all-round good fellow," said one of the faculty concerning Paul. 
We agree and are proud that he is a member of old '15. This young man is business- 
like and at his work every minute of the day. When he is not going to classes, he is 
studying. When he is not studying he is on his way to church. A most conscientious 
person who is always mindful of that for which he attends college. By his studious- 
ness and steady application to work, he stands high in classes and continually pulls 
good grades. In church work Paul has constantly taken a forward part, attending 
Sunday School, Christian Endeavor, and all other services with the same zeal he 
attends classes. One can set his timepiece by his crossing the campus on Sunday morn- 
ing on his way to services. Bowman has his mind set on taking up Y. M. C. A. work 
as soon as his college days are over. We can say that we know of none who would 
be better fitted for this than he. With his jolly disposition and friendly nature he is 
bound to weave himself into the freindship of others as he has done with us. 


CuRvix E. Brenneman. 

Windsor, Pa. 

"Brenny. " 

"His feet to him a kingdom are." 

Born at Windsor, Pa., .Tuly 4, 1887; Pre- 
pared for college at York Collegiate Institute; 
Entered college Sept. 1911 ; Historical course; 
Philo. Lit. Soc. Chaplain (3) ; Vice-President 
(3); Bizarre Staff; Ministerial Association; 
VV. C. S. S. L.; United Brethren Church; 
Future profession, Ministry. 

Friends, what have we here? A gentleman reared in the wilds of York County 
and accustomed to the backwoods, who in his earh- youth often terrorized the com- 
munity by raids on neighboring watermelon patches, chicken coops and even the hearts 
of fair young lassies. He graduated from the ranks of tobacco raisers, cigar makers 
and even from the little school house on the road before being called to the ministry. 
As a student he is determined and untiring and when he launches forth into the ranks 
of the ministry he will not only be perfectly acquainted with the psychological aspect 
of criminology but he wmU have Philosophy and theology to help him in his life's work. 
When once "Brenny" sets his mind to a thing he will do it. Evidence of which is 
the fact that he is the only preacher in the Penn. Conference w-ho has been granted the 
right to dance, and in that capacity he has delighted many a gathering. 


Ira Clyde Eby. 

Lebanon, Pa. 


"The Noblest Dutchman of them all." 

Born at Campbelltown, Pa., September 2, 
1889; Prepared at Palmyra H. S. and L. V. 
Academy; Entered college September 1911; 
Historical-Political course; Kalozetean Lit. 
Soc. ; Class baseball (1, 2); Evangelical 
Church; Future profession, Y. ^L C. A. Sec- 

A more thorough student can not be found in our class than Clyde ; he burns 
plenty of midnight oil and reaps his reward for it when exam's come. One fault he 
has which the English department has had trouble in teaching him to overcome is the 
pronunciation of his V's and W's. He has a great desire for dancing and frequently 
takes a night off and strolls to Hershey for a "hop." Recently Clyde grew tired of 
rooming at the boys dorm and of eating the "Dining Hall Grub," and now he makes 
Lebanon his place of abode. We wonder why, but after wondering for a while we 
come to the conclusion that there was a "Wolf" at the door. As to Clyde's future 
we can hardly predict but if his intentions are fulfilled he will be a private secretary 
to some national official. He has had much experience as a stenographer and his work 
along this line has always brought him laurels. Whatever position he may land, we 
hope it will be a "Jimmie" and wish him success. 


Larexe R. Exgle. 

Hummelstown, Pa. 


Born at Harrisburg, Pa., April 23, 1893; 
Prepared at Hershy High School and at L. V. 
Academy; Entered College Sept. 1911; His- 
torical-Political course ; Clionian Lit. Soc, 
Bizarre Staff; Junior play; Y. W. C. A. 
United Brethren Church. 

Larene is the other half of the Engle combination. Having explored the 
theories of education as expounded at the Hershey H. S., she entered L. V. Academy 
in 1910 from which she graduated the following spring. The school brightened per- 
ceptiblj' after her appearance, in fact her sunshiny disposition and her cheery smiles 
are of a kind that would brighten the sombre halls of the palace of Pluto. Larene 
believes that a reasonable amount of time should be spent in studying, but her experience 
shows her that there are far more important things in life than what are found in a 
college curriculum. Her dominant trait, seriousness ( ?) permeates all of her college 
life; chapel, campus work and classes included. Larene has never been known to 
refuse to do a favor for any one, and her agreeable disposition accounts for her many 
and widely distributed friends. Her one ambition in life is to be a "jolly good fellow." 
At any rate she is a good sort of a girl in every respect. 

Larene is decidedly pretty and is destined to turn some poor lonely bachelor's 
hall into a palace of radiancy and love. Just who this is to be we would not be so 
presumptious as to even make a guess.

being rather short, 'kind-a-fat,' and always ready to smile. Ruth being a day student 
has escaped many of the trials and heart-aches which attend strict dormitory life. 
Thus she brings with her a laugh, a joke, and a way to dispel the blues from everyone. 
She is the youngest girl of the class and accomplished as a scholar and a musician. In 
class work Ruth is steady ; constantly making good grades and applying herself indus- 
triously. Her "hobby" is French. She reads everything she can get, that is written 
in the language of that romantic country. As a pianist, Ruth is hard to excel. Her 
soles are wonderful and her accompaniments are always the best. She has decided 
to continue this study of music and with her present ability we have no doubt she will 
be heard from as a composer and great soloist. 



Ruth V. Engle. 

Hummelstown, Pa. 


"To icork for 1Q13, Ruth will not refuse;

Born at Harrisburg, Pa., April 23, 1893; 
Hershev H. S. and L. V. Academy; Entered 
college Sept. 1911 ; Historical-Political course; 
Clionian Society; Class Secretary (2) ; Caste, 
Junior play ; Y. W. C. A. ; Deutscher Verein ; 
Girls Basket-ball Team (3) ; United Brethren 
Church ; Future profession. Housekeeping. 

This little rhyme strikes the key note of Ruthies existence. What is not at 
Lebanon Valley for her is in the cold bleak north, doing his best to make a fortune. 
Yes, "Kep" sa^s that she is "his" and that settles the romantic part. 

The subject of this effusion is known throughout campus circles as the one half 
of the noisy combination called the Engle twins. "Larene and Ruth again," is what 
everybody says. Ruth is energetic and active in all she undertakes. She is industrious 
in her studies and although not a star in her classes as a rule passes her work without 
much trouble. Popular with all the girls, and always in for every thing at any time. 
Back in the diary of her Freshman year there reads a page telling of a certain Miss 
Johnson requiring Ruth to stick to the campus for all exercise. Walking was the 
only amusement then so we will pass rapidly over the suggestion that she had been 
"campused." "Horrors." There is no telling what happened before she began to 
confine attentions. 


Pharres B. Gibble. 

Annville, Pa. 

"Gib," "Pious." 

"He has his troubles." 

Born at .Manheim, Pa., June 3, 1888; Pre- 
pared at Elizabethtown College and L. V. A. ; 
Entered college September 1912; Historical- 
Political course; Kalozetean Lit. Soc. Class 
Historian (2) ; Ministerial Association, Pres- 
ident (3); Y. M. C. A. Men's Glee Club 
(1); Senior-Junior Council (3); United 
Brethren; Minister. 

A minister? — Yes. A married man? — Yes, that too. There is where Gibble's 
troubles begin and end. People attracted bj' his attitude and expression of face, ask: 
"Who's that?" We answer that he is president of the ministerial association and 
shepherd of a flock at Pleasant Hill. This accounts for all his dignity. A preacher 
who is liked by his congregation, because of his jolly disposition and friendly nature. 
As a rule, cheerful, — except when his wife puts before him an especially scanty dinner 
— and makes friends of all with whom he associates. Pharres says that his youngster — 
Yes, he has one — is going to be a debator. Well, if the Law of Heredity has anything 
to do with the matter, nothing will keep him out of a Justice's chair. Rev. Gibble 
is the only man in the class who has so far started his career that he has taken unto 
himself a wife. His deeply religious nature, his jovial disposition, and his oratorical 
powers assure him success in the ministerial world. 


Ethel I. Houser. 

Baltimore, Md. 

" There is a pleasure in the path/ess woods." 

Born in Baltimore (you don't need to know 
when?) ; Prepared in the eastern F. H. S. of 
Baltimore; Entered college September 1911; 
Historical-Political course; Clionian Society, 
Chaplain (2); United Brethren Church; 
Future occupation. Housekeeping. 

Ethel Irene, the ^laryland lassie, gives a fair example of one serving two masters 
with equal grace. By right of classification she is a member of 1915, but by right 
of "conquest" she wears 1914 colors. During her initial year a certain "dark-haired" 
youth entered her career and with such favorable forebodings that he still occupies a 
large part of Ethel's thoughts. It is a most familiar sight to behold "Reporter" and 
"his" coming down the dormitory steps, preparatory to departing to the land of 

Our sister is a bright happy creature having an agreeable nature. There is nothing 
she would not do for a person if help was needed. In handing out favors it may be 
said that Ethel is a good student. She is always prepared to recite in her classes and 
her grades are usually up to the standard. In her future career, helping a press agent 
keep up his spirits and making home a merry place, we are certain a host of friends 
will be hers and life will be happy, happy, happy . 

Mary L. Irwin. 

Harrisburg, Pa. 


"Aly life is om- horrid grind." 

Born at Harrisburg, Pa., 1893; Prepared

Lit. Soc. Class Secretary (3); Bizarre Staff;

Mary Luella belongs to that happy go lucky group of individuals at L. V. who 
are always on hand when the gang is out for a big night. Her sunny and cheerful 
disposition will drive the blues to the wall at a moment's notice, and in all these years 
we have never known her to take anything seriously to heart. She has a talent for 
music not equalled by any of her classmates, for with her, music is one and inseparable. 
Although hailing from a city noted for its capitol graft, we are glad to say that she 
has imbibed none of that influence from her environment for she is a student who 
has never been known to pull anything over on her professors, yea not even on the 

She is always overflowing with wit and literally overwhelms poor suffering mortals 
with such puns as "Quit your pining and spruce up," and "make a bough and then 
bark," etc., etc. Her versatility is shown in that she is not only a witticist musician 
and vocalist but also a scholar, as her English A students will testify. We know not 
what time shall bring forth, but surely she is well qualified to fit into a bright and 
happy home. 


Verlixg W. Jamisox. 

Warsaw, Indiana. 

"Jamey," "Satan." 

"Thy tongue betray cth thee." 

Born at Warsaw, Indiana, Feb. 24, 1894; 
Prepared at Warsaw High School; Entered 
college Sept. 1911 ; Historical-Political course; 
Kalo. Soc. Class poet (2) ; Caste, "A Scrap of 
Paper"; Glee Club (1, 2, 3) ; Class Football 
two Tug-of-war ( 1 ) ; United Brethren 
Church ; Lecturer. 

"Do you know Mr. Jameson, you're funny," said a fair co-ed at the dinner table 
one day — so says every one when Jamison opens his mouth and lets fly. What he says 
is ridiculous not only in itself but in the way it is said. Belonging to a happy go 
lucky bunch he makes things lively in headquarters, which are situated on the third 
floor of the Conservatory. As an originator and planner of feeds our brother cannot 
be equaled. Every possible evening when the times are slow out comes the oil stove 
with the implements of warfare. The art imbedded in domestic science is thoroughly 
understood by "Jamey" and he practices frequently. "A regular divil" is the ex- 
pression which seems to describe the fellow. He is in for anything that implicates 
any carrying out of premeditated "murder or thuggery." 

Jamison is rather adept at oratorical and dramatic work and his presence on the 
stage is familiar to every one. Thinking of "Jamey" in future we see him settled 
down, his old «tricks forgotten and his piety unmeasured. His intellectual ability as 
well as his activity is sure to make his name illustrious in the annals of history. 


John O. Jones. 

Paradise, Pa. 


"Judge not a man by his toivn." 

Born at Chaplains Quarry, Pa., March 26, 
1891; Prepared at Reading H. S. ; Entered 
college January 1912; Historical-Political 
course; Philo. Lit. Soc. ; Treasurer (3) ; Class 
Pres. (3) ; Class Debating team (2) ; Y. M. 
C. A. Cabinet; Bizarre Staff; Assistant Basket- 
ball Manager (3) ; United Brethren Church; 
Future profession, Ministry. 

Every Saturday afternoon gentle Johnnie Jones boards the train for Mount 
Claire where he spends Sunday preaching, eating chicken and attending Sabbath- 
School. On Monday morning he "returns empty" but with a broad smile to relate to 
all his friends the incident of the day before. 

John is a very good student and you may always find him in his room hard at 
work in spite of the interruptions of his ever faithful room mate in the gratification of 
his desire for pretzels and grapes. He tries to get on the good side of the English 
department on every auspicious occasion, having served as escort to the Professor of 
that department several times. 

When he is at home he is in Paradise; when he is in Harrisburg we know that 
he is also in Paradise; we believe that some day she will be with him in "Paradise." 
His never failing flow of humor, his smiling face, and his genial disposition are certain 
to make every place a happy place and we believe that L. V. and the world will hear 
from him. 



Hagerstown, Aid. 


"Ossiftr, she's brick again." 

Born at Falling Waters, W. Va., August 
8, 1889; Prepared at Hagerstown H. S. ; En- 
tered college September 1908, dropped out 
after two years and reentered Sept. 1913; His- 
torical-Political course; Clionian Lit. Soc. 
Chaplain (1), Secy. (2) ; Caste, "A Scrap of 
Paper"; Math. Round Table; United 
Brethren Church ; Teaching. 

Her first ticket here called for a diploma with the class of 1912, but she had 
three punches put in it by a course in domestic science in her mother's kitchen, con- 
sequently she will go out with us. She was not at school long until she joined the 
"heart breaker's club," and as a social leader Myra has no equal for she is constantly 
trying to entertain the boys. She has a fine sense of proportion and wishes to develop 
herself physically as well as mentalh'. Since she came to school before the da\s of the 
Alumni Gymnasium we can not censure her for taking to cross country work. Her 
ability in Mathematics has made an impression on Prof. Lehman, but her ability in 
Sociology has made a great impression upon a certain John who is some M{N)ess. 




J. Maurice Leister. 

Cocolamus, Pa. 


"In arguing too, the parson owned his skill. 
For e'en though empty he could talk on still." 

Born at Cocolamus, Pa., September 22, 
1889; Prepared at L. V. A.; Entered college 
September 1912; Historical-Political course; 
Philo Lit. Soc. Senior-Junior Council (3) ; 
Ministerial Association; ]\Iath. Round Table; 
United Brethren; Minister. 

This red-haired preacher blew into L. V. as a prep. Before the storm he was 
farming during the summer and teaching country school during the winter in fair 
Juniata county. He is to be commended for his industriousness because while striving 
for a diploma in the Academy he completed his freshman year's work and was eligible 
to enter with 1915 as a sophomore. As a minister of the gospel he was very successful 
while preaching on the Ebenezer charge and in the pulpit at Pottstown, Pa. Here at 
school his ministerial tendencies are pronounced, he taking all the Greek, Theology, 
Philosophy, and Anthropology that are offered in the various courses. As a ladies' 
man Maurice has no peer, for his attractive qualities are prominently perceptible. 
There has never been a fellow before him, and we have reason to believe that there will 
never be one after him, who has ability to make hits with girls sooner th"n he. We 
are not able to say whether or not he will be a single man until his commencement 
day, at any rate he says he is looking forward to a bright and happy future. Leister 
is constantly near "her" when at his home for, according to him "she lives on the 
next place from us." We hope he will have no trouble in starting life right by con- 
vincing "her" to share fortune with him. 


John W. Lerew. 

Dillsburg, Pa. 

"Larr)'," "Miles Standish." 

"An athlete, yet a scholar." 

Born at Latimore, Pa., July 15. 1891 ; Pre- 
pared at Conway Hall, Central State N. S.; 
Entered college September 1911; Math.- 
Physical course ; Philo Lit. Soc. Treasurer 
class (2); Member Math. Round Table; 
1915 Bizarre Staff; Caste of "A Scrap of 
Paper"; Varsity Football (1, 2, 3); Captain 
(2) ; Basket-ball (1. 2) ; Varsity Baseball ( 1, 
2, 3) ; Manager Track (3) ; United Brethren; 
Farmer or Coal miner. 

The precocious subject appearing here is a product of the farm. Larry's early 
school days were spent in the little Blackberry county schoolhouse near his home. 
There he established his record as a free-fisted bucaneer, which stands to this day. 
But his Blackberry career was dotted with intellectual triumphs as well as black eyes 
among his companions. Step by step the budding prodigy mastered the preparatory 
courses in a few select schools and finally armed with diplomas and fortified with 
football knowledge and well-developed social proclivities he made his collegiate debut. 
His course in L. V. has been woven through a maze of rough-house, smashed doors, 
dynamite explosions and legal entanglements. But, barring conditions he is a full- 
fledged Junior, a favorite among the girls, and evidently a most particular favorite of 
One of them. During the summer Larry has a wide professional practice as a farmer, 
coal miner, aluminum peddler, and woodchopper, the last mentioned often coming in 
handy while he is on the road. 

We like Larry as a rough neck, envy him as an athlete, and admire him as a 
good-fellow. Whatever his future may be, we feel sure that Old L. V. will always 
be proud to claim him as an Alumnus. 


Floren'Ce C. ^Ientz. 

York, Pa. 

"Floss," "Steve." 

"What an Hi-larri-oiis tunc I am having." 
Born at York, Pa., Alarch 8, 18^4; Pre- 
pared at York H. S. ; Entered college Septem- 
ber 1911; Historical-Political course; Clio. 
Soc. Class Secretary (2) ; Bizarre Staff; Col- 
lege News Staff ; Pres. Y. W. C. A. ( 3 ) ; 
Mathe. Round Table; Deutscher Verein; 
Lutheran Church. Future profession. 

Up to the time "Floss" came to L. V. her doings were unimportant, notwith- 
standing the fact that she took first honor in her class at York High. In class work 
she is always doing justice to old 1915. Who can do the "jawbreaker" algebra and 
trig problems in the girls dorm ? Why, Florence ! Who always knows her lessons in 
class? Flossie, to be sure! If L. V. ever had a star she has one in Floss. And as a 
star she has attracted a sun, — to her the only son, — and many times do they shine in 
L. V. Society. But for all this she has never been known to "le-ment" (or "rew"). 
Not only is she a favorite among the girls but among the sterner sex as well. She is 
exceedingly practical and must know the why and wherefore to every joke even if it 
is labeled. With this Flo is a very clever accomplished young lady having a bright and 
happy disposition. In the future, after graduation she expects to take up the art of 
Pedagogy; when asked for how long she blushes delightfully and says, "Oh, just long 
enough to see what it is like."

Vera F. Myers. 

Longsdorf, Pa. 

"Chick," "Veera." 

"Thou ivouldst still be adored." 

Born at Centerville, Pa., May 19, 1892; 
Prepared at L. V. A. Historical-Political 
course; Clionian Lit. Soc. Judge Society (3) ; 
Secretary (3); Artist 1915 Bizarre Staff; 
Caste, "A Scrap of Paper" ; Member Girl's 
Glee Club (2, 3); Ass't Manager (3); 
United Brethren ; Teaching. 

Since entering Lebanon Valley, Vera has become a very versatile young lady. 
She wisely spent the first several years of her college life in exhausting the possibilities 
of the Art and Music departments while waiting for a class to enter which would 
prove to be on a level with her high ideals. Passing 1914 by she saw that 1915 was 
the most congenial and efficient body in the history of the school and became a member 
in the Fall of 1912. Vera comes from a rural section where the natives consider her 
an honor and credit to the community. Under the subtile influence of city life, as 
found at Annville, she has lost her original awe of skyscrapers and has taken a most 
active position in society. The choice seats for all Star Course Numbers and enter- 
tainments are reserved for her many dates. At house-parties and sleighing-parties, 
Vera shines without exception. Also Vera is a star on the Basket-ball Floor. 

'Chick' will probably become a teacher after graduation provided she escapes the 
"Gulf of ALitrimony." We can not doubt that with her cheerful good nature to- 
gether with her ability. Vera will undoubtedly make good in anything she undertakes. 


John H. Ness. 

Yoe, Pa. 

"Johnny," "Pop." 

"A minister who means ivell." 

Born at York, Pa., October 23, 1891 ; Pre- 
pared at Yoe H. S. and at York Collegiate 
Institute; Entered college September 1912; 
Classical course; Vice-President of class (2) ; 
Philo Lit. Soc. Vice-President (3) ; Member 
of Ministerial Association; Intercollegiate De- 
bating Team (3) ; United Brethren; Minister. 

This duck-craving individual is a by-product of York Collegiate Institute. He 
is a desperado and a bold, bad man, but withall 'a very divil among the women.' 
Johnny dearly loves his room-mate Jones and the two are inseparable. What Jones 
will do when his wife leaves him we will leave to conjecture. Ness is one of those 
unoffensive fellows whom you would not know to be round as a general rule. Ex- 
ception to this is found in the fact that our class-brother is very fond of singing and 
expounding his individual ideas on "Scientific Confirmation of Old Testament His- 
tory." This is an early fault and hopes are held for his speedy recovery. 

Ness has all the elements necessary for a great preacher but is handicapped by 
being a strong Prohibitionist. Unless the reading of the crystal be wrong, we find 
this young gentleman will soon become a loving husband for some sweet little Miss — . 
Just who this will be we won't tell. 


May Belle Orris. 

Steelton, Pa. 


"Every lassie has her laddie." 

Born at Highspire, Pa., July 4, 1890; 
Prepared at Cumberland V'alley State Normal 
School; Entered college September 1912; His- 
torical-Political course; Clionian Literary 
Soc. Critic (3); Bizarre Staff; Glee Club

Sec. Soc. (2) ; Judge (2) ; Caste: "A Scrap 
of Paper"; Lutheran Church; Future profes- 
sion, Teaching. 

This girlie began life in that rather cosmopolitan village along the Susquehanna, 
controlled by the steel trust. Though born in a town noted for its obscurity, she has 
lighted up that obscurity and has fought her \va\' through a wicked world by destroy- 
ing its wickedness before her and with it all been unscathed by deceit. Belle is a 
peculiar mixture of joy and gloom, in fact she has about as many moods as a Greek 
verb, yet these accomplishments tend to draw her more closely to her many friends. 
After graduating from C. V. S. N. S. in 1907, Belle assumed the role of "school 
marm" for several years in the public schools of her native heath. She joined us in 
our Sophomore year and her never dimming smile has proved valuable to us. There 
is a rumor to change the subject and view her from another angle: that this young 
lady of outward calm and circumspection has found a warm platonic friendship with 
a certain young man, who must be reckoned with as a factor in her future — but that 
is another story. 


Carl G. Snavely. 

Ramey, Pa. 

"Rah Rah," "Snave." 

"Aly soul these days is far aivay." 

Born at Omaha, Nebraska, July 30, 1892; 
Prepared at State College H. S. and Danville 
H. S.; Entered college September 1911; His- 
torical-Political course; Philo. Lit. See; Pres. 
Class (2) ; Bizarre Staff; Class Debating 
team (1 and 2) ; Senior- Junior Council (3) ; 
Secretary Athletic Board (3) ; Secretary Philo. 
Society (2); Glee Club (2) ; Varsity: Foot- 
ball (1, 2, 3); Basket-ball (1, 2); Baseball 
(1, 2, 3) ; Capt. Basket-ball (2) ; Capt.-elect 
Football (4) ; Methodist Church; Law. 

"Rah Rah" premier athlete of the class is a coal miner. This young giant insists 
that he was born in Nebraska but unfortunately Uncle Sam has blotted the town 
from the map. He is a very unsettled fellow having lived in no less than a dozen 
towns throughout the United States. After completing a course in the Danville rolling 
mills he entered L. V. Immediately upon his appearance he became active in class 
affairs and athletics and very soon in the larger interests of the college. Carl is an 
active participant in football, basket-ball and baseball and has won the Varsity "L" 
eight times. He will be next year's football captain, a position which no one deserves 
more than he. Some times the benfit of the doubt is given to the man who does not 
say much, so "Rah Rah" is given the credit of knowing a good deal more than he 
says. His thirst for knowledge is not a mad one, but he pursues it with that calm 
composure and gentle ease with which he is happily endowed. We can foresee that as 
a lawyer he must eventually end up as the interpreter of the law for some large cor- 
poration, where silence is valued and ability well compensated.

Not so many years ago there was ushered into this busy and chaotic universe, a 
little baby bo\', who after careful consideration was destined to be known as Philo. 
"Ike" passed through the various stages of childhood from the first tooth stage to that 
of the measles, in the land of cowboys and poker games. In the subject of our sketch 
we see one whose early environment seems not to have had a harmful effect upon him ; 
in other words his position as a minister's son left no effect upon him, pro or con. 

This dark haired youth comes from the south "sah," where he learned to play 
the violin, football and the jews-harp, all of which he does well. Outside of a few 
minor faults "Ike" is not a bad fellow. He is one of the few at college who can say 
that they have never walked with a girl.( ?) Some day there will be another illustrious 
name on the scroll of famous mathematicians. His success will be marked because 
of his studious habits coupled with pleasing and facetious personality.

Faber E. Stengle. 

Oberlin, Pa. 

"Fabe," "Wabor." 

"He is a quiet youth — at times." 

Born at Steelton, Fa., September 25, 1890; 
Prepared at Steelton H. S. ; Entered college 
September 1911; Chemical-Biological course; 
Kalo Lit. Soc. Treasurer class ( 1 ) ; President

M. C. A. convention at Kansas City (3) ; 
Member Math. Round Table, Men's Glee 
Club (1, 2, 3) ; United Brethren; Business. 

A loud guffaw, peculiar in its sharp "Hah, Hah, Hah" is known to everyone 
around Lebanon Valley. In classes, in meetings, in the Dining Hall, everywhere does 
this cackling break forth. The attention of the being producing these explosions can 
be attracted by yelling — "Fabe." This monysyllable will not only bring him to a halt 
but will cause an exclamation which is 'Stengle' in it's characteristics, "Whatcher 
want." The fellow we discuss is one of the most popular around school because of 
never failing jolly and happy disposition. Around the table his jokes are famous and 
his geniality makes them ridiculous whether funny or not. Stengle is a good student 
in all his work and his grades show constant application. This diligence in college 
classes is sure to have its results and in after life when application to one's work is so 
highly necessary, we are certain that Faber will make the world hustle out of his way. 

Ralph W. Stickell. 

Waynesboro, Pa. 

"I'm twed of plannbig and toiling alone." 

Born at Williamson, Pa., Feb. 23, 1893; 
Prepared at Waynesboro H. S. ; Entered col- 
lege September 1911; Historical-Political 
course; Philo. Lit. Soc. ; Class Vice-President 
( 1 ) ; Bizarre Staff ; Varsity Football ( 1 ) ; 
Varsity Baseball (1, 2, 3); Captain (3); 
Methodist Church; Future profession, IVIajor 
League Baseball. 

The nativity of this illustrious looking gentleman was an auspicious event in the 
History of Franklin Count}'. Indeed certain passages of Milton appropriately com- 
memorate the occasion. 

"Sticks" ran the course of the Waynesboro High School with great credit as an 
athlete as well as a student. When he entered L. V. his intentions were chiefly of an 
athletic nature. These suffered a setback when he received a serious and unfortunate 
injury in his third football game. But although a "bum" knee has prevented him 
from being a football star, we must "hand it to him" as a great baseball pitcher. 

In the summer "Sticks" is an accomplished machinist, coal miner, or baseball 
player, depending upon which is most suitable, and while at school he is an excellent 
waiter in the dining hall ; and above all he shines with the ladies — perhaps we had 
better say lad\' for as far as "Sticks" is concerned there is only one. Stormy rivalry 
has marked this little romance, but as usual R. W. has won out and now many of 
his friends think that he will not remain a member of the class until graduation. But 
as a married man or a graduate, "Sticks" is sure to prove a credit to old L. V.

There is not a man or woman in college who has not at some time or other seen 
that familiar figure, with a black cloth, blacker than the shades of night, thrown over 
his head, looking through a telescoping, box-like arrangement, which to the casual ob- 
server might bring fear ; the fear that the uninitiated has when the muzzle of a gun 
stares him in the face for the first time. There is no danger for "the man behind the 
gun" is a man of no small ability. Being one of the Bizarre photographers, his work 
is all that can be desired in quality. A number of the "caught in the act" scenes of 
this book were made and finished by him. Frank also shines as a member of the 
"Prep" Faculty and his "wee small voice" may regularly be heard teaching the truths 
of nature to those of more tender age. Although not connected with the music de- 
partment his exercises in vocal culture are frequently heard with charm as he passes 
through the halls of the men's dormitory. Frank has a sympathetic heart and many 
friends. He is a good student and will be heard from in after life.

When interviewed b\- his official biographer he claimed that there had never been 
any important events in his life. However the minor details are sj numerous and 
varied that Al stands out among his fellows as a person of wonderful experience and 
lofty judgment. After exhausting the advantages of the public schools to his p;rsonal 
satisfaction, Al entered Shippensburg normal where he had great success singing in 
the Glee Club and celebrating basket-ball victories. Encouraged by the possession of 
his normal school 'Dip' he became a teacher. Al became widely known and feared 
as reckless user of the paddle. However, he was forced to discontinue this vocation 
due to the fact that his work became greatly complicated because all the girls fell in 
love with him. He next became proprietor of the "Lemoyne Fancy Feed" house. 
But the gay social pace which his profuse prosperity and elevated station demanded, 
threatened to undermine his health so Alvin retired from business. Al entered L. V. 
and in the first class scrap acquired a black eye that hindered his social activities until 
after the next commencement. But he h''S escaped serious difficulty and now upholds 
his station as a Junior with the same dignity with which he served the state. Here's 
wishing that his past success may continue with him to the culmination of earthly

Lester B. Zug. 

Chambersburg, Pa. 


"Up at State ive did this." 

Born at Chambersburg, Pa., June 9, 1893; 
Prepared at Chambersburg Academy and at 
Chambersburg H. S.; Spent three 3'ears at 
Penn. State; Entered college September 1913; 
Philo Lit. Soc. Chaplain Society (3) ; Bizarre 
Staff (3) ; Caste, "A Scrap of Paper"; United 
Brethren; Minister. 

Laugh and — who laughs with you? Why, everjone within striking distance of 
Zug's infectious smile. That broad expanse of countenance opens its chasm regularly 
and presents a most humorous appearance. But, one who is never sad, never gloomv, 
never pessim.istic must do something to show the world his disposition, hence he smiles. 

When Lester B. first made his appearance on Lebanon Valley campus he was 
surveyed and spoken of immediately as a 'good fellow.' The girls of the institution 
too were impressed with Zug's catching good nature. He made himself known by 
uttering one expression, "Fellows this is great." So enthusiastic was he over the pos- 
sibilities offered at Lebanon Valley that he fell immediately into step in the 'March 
of Good-fellowship,' and became one of us. Zug is a faithful student and always 
attends to what he has to do. Hence his future is planned and he can not help but 
make good at whatever he adopts as a lifework. 


The Has-Beens 


^^^fc^HE latest success given on an Annville stage was played in Engle Hall au- 
■ ^ J ditorium last evening before a crowded house. The play, b\' name "The 
^^^^F Long-Suffering Faculty," is a farce in three acts dealing with the common 
trials and tribulations which are presented to a college faculty. The scene is laid in 
the town of Clearfield, a village which contains a medium sized coeducational college. 
The play weaves into its plot the common every-day life of the students. 

In the first act, the first scene is laid in a room which from its decorations and 
its occupants, is seen at once to be a habitation of several lady professors. When the 
curtain arises for the first time, the house sees 'The Triumvirate' in heated discussion 
concerning a girl who has violated all rules of propriety. They finally decide to make 
an example of the girl and withdraw all privileges from her. In a later scene is shown 
the girl affected greatly animated over the decision and in active argument with a 
crowd of her friends. The case is appealed to a higher court but the decision holds 
firm, and the act ends with a pathetic scene in which the girl and her lover are deeply 
lamenting the results of such monarchical power. 

The second act depicts discussions and heated arguments which are taking place 
in the weekly Faculty meeting. Question after question of importance is brought 
before the body of professors and rulings are passed that affect every possible phase 
of college life. Violent orders are laid for the students to conform to and stringent 
measures are adopted for the enforcing of the same. This meeting has its effects upon 
the student body, and as a result remonstrances are constructed and sent to the faculty, 
stating the rights of those trodden under by the rulings passed. This act separates 
the go\ernors and those governed still farther and there is little hope entertained for 
a reconciliation before the rulings are made void. 

The last act of this play on college days begins with a show of great excitement 
in the room of a fellow who has been implicated in supposed chicken theft. True 
dormitory life is the basis of this scene and numerous comical occasions arise through 
the arguments of the 'bunch.' The next scene is laid in the college dining hall where 
all are gathered for their mid-day meal. The town cop here makes his appearance 
with a warrant for two fellows which are charged with the stealing of chickens. A 
humorous state of affairs comes about when the 'ossifer' gets fresh and in an attempt 
to show his authority is ejected forcibly from the premises. The charges against the 
two innocent fellows are pushed farther and the affair becomes serious. The play 
ends with a scene where the Faculty and Student body is once more united and stand- 
ing together to thwart attempts to convict the innocent.

What We Have Done 

/OON after the Class of 1916 entered Lebanon Vallej' College, it chose for 
its motto,, "Facta non vida." The first event of importance after organiza- 
tion was the Freshman banquet at the Metropolitan Hotel in Harrisburg, 
to which all those who had planned to go, went with exception of a few who were 
detained by the Sophs. The Sophs defeated us in Football — but only by a close score — 
and in debate. Our debating team put up such forceful arguments that even the 
Scphs themselves trembled. After this debate our class enjoyed a \ery pleasant social 
hour in the Ladies' Parlors. 

Even though the present Freshman class numbered more than fifty, very early in 
the year we obliged some of them to help us display our posters. Soon after this we 
went off to the Water-works for a little hike and a "feed." We had kept our counsel 
so well and had laid and carried out our plans so deliberately that the 'green' Fresh- 
men did not have the slightest idea of our intentions until it was too late to follow 
us. Our chaperone on this occasion said that she had never chaperoned a better 
crowd. When we returned from this trip, we found the freshmen girls so badly 
frightened by our absence and the disappearance of a few of their kej-s that they rein- 
forced their doors with trunks and bureaus to keep us from hazing them. 

Being out-numbered and slightly out-weighed, we were deteated in the Tug-of- 
war contest; but with football things went differently and we won a glorious victory 
over the 'Greeners' by score of 6-0. The 'freshies' were so peeved over this defeat 
that they consoled themselves only by taunting us about defeats which they had not 
caused. We celebrated this victory b^ another evening of enjoyment in the Ladies' 

When' the freshmen finally decided to have their banquet, they showed cowardice 
by sneaking away on Sunday. In spite of this we captured their toast-master and 
prevented his attendance. On account of wrangling among the Freshmen, they were 
compelled to forfeit the annual interclass debate. 

We have already shown our loyalty to our Alma Mater by presenting her with 
an American flag, which now flies proudly over the Administration Building. This 
token, we hope to renew when time needs and thus ever show our appreciation of the 
watchfulness over us. 

The internal workings of our class have always been cordial. We were able t,o 
select class pins which pleases everyone. Our Bizarre Staff is also elected for next 
year. Dear Reader, if you find less boasting in this history than in others, remember 
that we try to follow our motto: "Deeds not Words."

What They Have Done 

ON the opening day of school, September 12, 1913, the entering class of 1917, 
composed of fifty energetic and knowledge-hungry young men and women, 
began their journey upon the trodden path of knowledge by meeting in the 
Library Building for the purpose of organization. The Soph's, in their vain glory, 
attempted to break up the "meetin," but were unceremoniously thrown down the 
stairs. The newl} acquired dignit\ of the Sophomores was soon again sadly ruffled 
when on the following night the "Greenies" securely tied them all and during the 
silent hours of the night placed the posters of 1917 safely and securely over the village. 
In the meantime, the Soph's after many class meetings, agreed to have what they were 
pleased to call posters printed. After a delay of more than a month they finally found 
nerve enough to place a few of them on several vacant barns of the town. Their 
glory was short lived, since not a trace of the posters was to be found the next 

The Tug-of-war followed. Here again we demonstrated our superior strength 
b\ pulling the Soph's across the line se\en times. The Football game was our only 
reverse of the. j^ear, losing after a game and plucky fight to our heavier and more 
experienced opponents, 6-0. 

The numerous "fake" banquets and the resulting "scraps" are all laughable mat- 
ters now, the\' were all so easy. Special mention should be given the Co-eds for the 
part they played in that memorable afternoon scr?p late in the fall when they fully 
demonstrated their abilit\' as amateur pugilists and hair-pullers. 

Finally the real banquet did take place at the Hotel Wheatland, Lancaster, Pa. 
Great was the excitement incident to leaving, but all this was forgotten when at last 
we were safely gathered at Lancaster. The bounteous banquet was a fitting culmina- 
tion to our past achievements and was an appropriate harbinger of victories to come. 

The title we are prouder of than all is "Inter-class Basket-ball Champions — Season 
I9i3-'i4." Our boys worked hard to win this title and the honor that is attached 
to it, and deserve much credit and praise. This is especially true when one remembers 
that every game they played was a victory for 1917. 

The Freshmen class has not been lagging in college spirit, evidence being found 
in the fact that she has contributed much material to all branches of sport. We are 
also well represented in the Men's and Ladies' Glee Clubs. 

1917 has shown herself worthy of the position she holds in the college and every 
member will use his and her best endeavors to further the best activities of our Alma 
Mater. Veni, vedi, vici — we came, we saw, we conquered — for the greater glory 
and honor of old LEBANON VALLEY.

History of Academy 

NNVILLE Academy, as our preparatory' department was first named had 
its beginning near the year 1834. The school had its origin in a small private 
acrdemy near the site of John L. Saylor & Son's Carriage Works on White 
Oak Street. In 1836, the Academy was removed to a building on Main Street, which 
in 1858 was replaced by the old Academy building. This building was donated to 
Lebanon Valley College in 1868 and existed independent of the college until 1904. 
At that time it was made a distinct part of the college under the name, Lebanon 
Valley Academy, with Prof. H. E. Spessard as its Principal. From then on the 
Academy has steadily grown under efficient direction. In 1906, a scholarship in 
Lebanon Valley College of one hundred dollars was first offered. This has been taken 
each year by the student in the graduating class who has made the highest marks. In 
1908 the students organized a debating club, which met monthly. This was the first 
student organization in the Academ}-. The strong Football and Baseball teams of 
that year testify for the spirit of the students. It was in this same year that the 
Senior class first had a graduation exercise. The class numbered twelve and showed 
in their commencement how efficiently had been the Academy that \'ear. Though in 
later years the Debating club was dropped, the Academy still existed as an organized 
body. Since then the Preparatory Department has been gradually improving. Though 
in several years, the enrollment was not up to strmdard, the standing of the students 
was surely on the up-grade. 

In the fall of 1912, Prof. S. O. Grimm took charge as principal. He has 
been especially successful in organizing Academic work and bringing it up to the 
standard of the State. This year the Preps have won fame for themselves in several 
ways. In basket-ball they produced a team which showed to everyone ability which 
was not imagined. The working of their five improved from the first game until 
at the end of the season they were in second place in the Inter-Class League. In base- 
ball, their team was composed of nearly all new men. However, it proved its worth 
in winning the majority of the games played. 

From past actions and past improvements it can easily be seen that Lebanon 
Valley will have a preparatory school that can compete successfully with any of

A Scrap of Paper 


X January 15, the Juniors under the able direction of Miss Adams pre- 
sented the three act comedy, "A Scrap of Paper," hy the French playwright 

The first act is laid in a drawing room in a French country house. PROSPER 
COURAMONT at one time lover of the BARONESS De La GLACIERE has 
traveled all over the world and is now stopping at the house of BRISMOUCHE, 
his friend. He goes to the house of the Baroness with the intention of offering his 
hand in marriage to her sister MATILDE, whom he saw out riding that morning 
but whom he has never met. LOUISE is shocked at the idea for she considers MA- 
THILDE as a mere child. As to the early love affair between PROSPER and the 
BARONESS there has been a great misunderstanding. He never understood why 
she treated him so cooly, positively dropping him like a "hot potato," and then so sud- 
denly marrying the old BARON. They were accustomed to place little "billet doux" 
in a statuette of Flora and that last night she had placed a note here for him. In 
the meantime he was called away on duty and she was taken to Parid by her mother. 
She, not knowing that he was away, became angry, thinking that he had dropped her 
and married the BARON. Now he explains to her this mystery of three years and 
immediately it dawns on them that the letter must still be in the "Flora." They both 
go for it when the BARON, who is really a "polar bear," enters. SUZANNE De 
RUSEVILLE also enters and at once sees that something has gone wrong. After the 


usual salutations, dinner is announced and the guests enter the dining hall, PROSPER 
escorting SUZANNE. In act two the scene is laid in the room assigned to PROSPER, 
in the house of BRISMOUCHE. SUZANNE has learned that it was a letter which 
has caused the excitement between LOUISE and PROSPER and immediateh' de- 
cides that she must get that letter and destroy it to save the BARON and BARON- 
ESS. While she is searching in PROSPERS room, the BARONESS, all excited 
knocks at the door and implores SUZANNE to assist her in the search for the letter. 
They both begin a search and while LOUISE is in the other room SUZANNE finds 
the letter in a tobacco jar. Suddenly there is a loud knock at the door and the 
BARON enters. LOUISE hides in' PROSPER'S bed-room and SUZANNE at- 
tempts to save her from discovery. In order to do this she is obliged to tell the 
BARON that she is in love with PROSPER and that she is afraid that he will 
marry MATHILDE. The BARON at last understands and says that he shall see 
that PROSPER marries her. This is more than she has bargained for but she is 
"game" and will see it through. PROSPER in the meantime begins to like SU- 
ZANNE and forgets about MATHILDE, who is very much in love with ANA- 
TOLE. Since SUZANNE has possession of the letter she decides that it would be 
clever to have PROSPER burn it himself. She half burns the letter and lays it by the 
hearth. PROSPER enters and finds SUZANNE apparently asleep. She soon 
awakes and as the room is growing dark PROSPER uses the letter to light a candle. 
A servant however, enters with a lamp and the paper is extinguished before it is 
burned. SUZANNE playfully and artfully extinguishes the lamp and PROSPER 
uses the remainder of the letter to light the lamp. The burning paper he throws out 
of the window. SUZANNE insists that PROSPER go and get the half-burned 
paper before the BARON finds it. 

Act three is a conservatory scene. SUZANNE and PROSPER enter excitedly 
after a hasty search for the letter. BRISMOUCHE however has found it and has 
used it as a cage for a beetle that he has recently found. ANATOLE enters in 
search of some paper on which to write a note to MATHILDE. He spies the scrap 
of paper sticking in the end of BRISMOUCHE'S gun and immediately appropriates 
it writes his note and sends it to MATHILDE. PAULINE who takes the note 
gives it to ZENOBIA his guardian, by mistake. BRISMOUCHE, who by this . 
time is feeling rather jubilant gets the letter and begins to read aloud "Dearest love — ." 
The letter is finally rescued and with SUZANNE holding the candle PROSPER 
himself burns it. Every thing is now as it should be, the BARON and LOUISE 
are reunited, PROSPER and SUZANNE are happy in each others arms and ANA- 
TOLE has at last told MATHILDE that he loves her. Thus it happened that "A 
SCRAP OF PAPER" finally brought happiness to all.

CHE Chafing Dish club is in very good working order at Lebanon Valley 
College. The members of the club devote much of their time attempting 
new and mysterious dishes. As the object of the organization is to become 
more proficient in the art of cooking and to add to the culinary knowledge already 
held, meetings are assembled nearly every evening for the trying out of new recipes. 
Not only are students members of the club, but the Feminine associates of the faculty 
as well. Tea is a specialty of this department ; also Sunday evening suppers are im- 
portant on the menu. There are all grades of work being done. Some are just be- 
ginning in their art, while others have advanced greatly. Miss Case does well for 
a beginner; the tea she serves is delicious. Miss Wyand is a fair type of near-perfec- 
tion. Often the club elects several of their number to try their skill on the sterner 
sex. Who does not pity the poor victim who after forcing down mouthful after 
mouthful of scorched "Rarebit," must declare it the best he ever tasted?

true English.

Ye Heathens 

This organization is composed of the unfortunate humans of the college that are 
the unlucky holders of the title "Minister's Son's". This club contains the brain and 
brawn of L. V. C, mostly brains. However the gray matter of the aforesaid organ 
is in such a state of immaturity that one not personally acquainted with the individuals 
would not be likely to seriously accuse them of being overburdened with brain cells. 
As to their muscular development one needs only to look at the remains of the doors, 
chairs, tables and lamp globes of the Men's Dormitory. It is a fact to be deplored 
that these young men should be known chiefly by results of their rough house tactics, 
yet such is the case, due doubtless to their early training and youthful associations. 

Motto : Nicht drinkibus, nicht swearibus, nicht chewibus, nicht smokibustum. 

Colors : Meershaum and calabash.

The S. P. B. D. 

During the past \ear, a society has been formed which has proven of great worth 
to the moral state of the students. The Society for the Prevention of the Breaking 
of Doors effected it's organization as result of New Year's resolutions made by several 
of the charter members. Realizing that the word "destructiveness" had come to play 
too important a part in their career and hearing the word used many times in connec- 
tion with their names, their consciences were stricken. As a consequence when the 
New Year's bells were pealing forth and when Watch-Meetings were solemnizing 
the ending of one year and the beginning of another which should prove better, three 
men resolved to turn in their ways and live stricter lives. 

Hence, in the early days of 1914 this society was founded and based on the convic- 
tions of these men. The rules of conduct formulated included regulations concerning 
not only the destruction of doors, but also relating the damage of any other property. 
The motto of this association was chosen, "Think before you act — then don't act". 

The official staff acting in judicial and executive capacity, by great activity has 
reduced destruction to a minimum. Only fourteen doors have been kicked in since 
January, thirteen of which have been battered down by members of the committee in 
the discharge of their sacred duties. 

We might here mention an incident which occurred during the month of Janu- 
ary, and which was very much regretted by the association. There are cases where 
the mind is excited to such an extent that all judgment is forgotten and unpremedi- 
tated deeds are accomplished. Such was the instance after a basket-ball game with 
Lafayette, on the night of January twenty-eighth, when members of the society al- 
lowed college spirit to enter into and dominate their actions. Thinking that a victory 
from Lafayette deserved a bon-fire celebration, several of the more active fellows 
started to gather wood for a conflagration. In getting together kindling material, 


IVIackert and Evans, together with a few others, forgot their resolutions and allowed 
themselves to be guilty of breaking perfectly good wooden boxes which had been stood 
■on end and used as "lockers" in the years of ancient L. V. This action was entirely 
impulsive and would not have happened if the motto of the order had been called 
to mind. However, the association realized the vulgarity of this crime and took 
iteps to bring punishment upon the evil-doers. Three of the guilty ones sent before 
the college faculty and along with them a request that they be reprimanded and 
severely fined for this unnecessary show of college spirit. Thus it happened that these 
three were made the subject of lecture and compelled to pay several dollars apiece for 
their reckless action. 

This has served as a lesson to many and since, the association has had little 
trouble in enforcing their rulings. The society has also passed regulations restricting 
the use of fire-arms in the dormitories. Less than two dozen electric lights and very 
few windows have been broken as a direct result of the use of dangerous weapons. 
It might be stated here that, due to the good aim of the members not a single student 
has been shot this year. 

The authorities so appreciated this work that, on several occasions, important 
members of the staff were called before the faculty in order to receive the sincere 
congratulations on the body.

while it is always looked to the head of an inStitute as to its conduct and discipline 
would it not be fine for the people of annville if this most grewesum doings of the 
colege Students at night wuld be Stoped as it Seamed on monday night worst than a 
Set of beast on the Streets if Such will be repeted it will not be any wunder if the

Annville, Pa., February 1, 1914. 

L. V. C. Supt. You are having the worst set of cut throats, and undesirable citisens 
in the histry of Annville, and the head of such an institute that lets such things go, 
and upholds it with fire bugs, stoke robers, chair stealers, light smashers chicken sieves

a christian institute why it must Be a Bomination to the LORD to see such things, 
and the people Blame you. For so Bad Order, Much better close up. the world has 
plenty cut throats.

The Town Council! 




— ON LY — 


Next to the college itself the most salubrious feature of Annville's rare wonders 
is the venerated Town Council. This worthy body of celebrities exhibiting that pro- 
found and scintilating brilliancy of intellect, for which it is famed and exalted, in 
the administration the municipal government, has recognized the infinite importance 
of the Lebanon Valley students and has established for their sole benefit a brand of 
legislation, oderous with decomposure and debilitated by the utter impossibility of it's 

It has been made unlawful to build bon fires between the hours of 12 o'clock and 
12 o'clock. 

It is declared unlawful to have a parade in celebration of an athletic victory, 
although local lodges and brass bands may overrun the streets and harrass the sensibili- 
ties of the residents at their pleasure. 

Because of their mental deficiency students must not own fire arms. 

Students are held responsible for all crimes and fires entailing the loss of barns 
or other property, until it is proven that another person was the offender. 

These laws apply to students only and do not limit the actions of other residents. 

The students acknowledge the honor of their eminent position in the eyes of 
the noble legislators and have endeavored to show their appreciation of the same by 
refraining from the breaking of these laudable statutes except in cases where their 
personal wishes require the breaking of the same. Aided by the venerable municipal 
prosecuting attorney' — the squire — and assisted by the gallant and heroic bravery of 
the plain clothes police "farce" — the town constable — the enforcement of these laws 
has been reduced to the subminimum and the turbulent town of Annville is governed 
with only occasional aid from the State Constabulary. 

The college had just received a car load of lumber, 
the following telegram : 

Knot-holes received. Please send the knots.

The Nutty Poet 

They call this place an asylum — 
It sure is a miserable shack — 
My name, you know is Tennyson, 
But they call me a maniac. 

They can't see genius for I am sure 
A poet of talent great. 
Leave it to me and wait to see — ■ 
Will soon be the poet laureate. 


The night was dark and the torrents fell, 
But still the poet raved like — thunder 
Our hero raised his blunderbuss 
And two more redskins bit the dust. 

Into the church the crazy fool blundered, 
Where Sheldon's old pipe organ volleyed and thundered. 
Braver by far than the brave "Five Hundred" 
When into the cannon swept breach, they wandered. 

Out in the street in battle array, 
Where the police force is wont to have bold sway, 
In pajamas and nightshirts, by dozens, I say, 
That hadn't been washed for many a day. 

Many a Freshman, by terrible fate. 
Ain't got no nightshirt to celebrate. 
"Go to Miss Adams," a Sophomore says, 
"She keeps them on hand for dramatical plays." 

Old Lebanon Valley's a heck of a place. 
They always have dinner, but never say grace. 
The\' give you a second to nourish your soul 
And five minutes more for feeding \'our face. 

Miss Foundation Schmidt, with hair all aflame. 
Stood back of the porch pillar, after the game. 
And then as the co-eds in tardiness, came. 
With malice aforethought, she took down each name. 

Miss Johnson — whom fairies named, Falba Love — 
On ivy screened balcony directly above, 
Listened, heart fluttering like wings of a dove. 
As Dave, bending tenderly. Kissed Mary's glove. 


Do You Remember? 

When the Sophs (16) won their first victory? The football game in 1914? 

When Miss Page was the most popular girl at Lebanon Valley? 

How angry the constable was when the boys paraded through Annville in a 
picturesque garb? Threats of jail. 

When Mr. Craybill was hypnotized and had a peculiar affinity for "Coony" 
Curry ? 

The day the "Indians were defeated by the Indian"? 

That Miss Adams is afraid of harmless reptiles — mice and dead snakes, for 
instance ? 

When Leray Bowers Harnish objected to the stringent rules laid down by the 

The day the preachers forgot to eat their dinner and the students got it ? H-m-m ! 
Baked beans ! 

Why Ike was so anxious to get back to Annville before vacation was over? 

When the Misses Risser and Case lost their "switches" in the gymnasium? 

Of having heard Bender's mackinaw? 

When the Freshmen girls showed their Amazon spirit ? Miss Dasher hastening 
through the day-students' window! 

Of ever having heard the phrase "Ish gebibbel" ? 

The last snow we had ? 

When Slim Snavely kept quiet for five minutes? 

When twenty-three girls turned out for basket-ball ? Some hair-dressing time. 

When Pres. Gossard was addressed as "Sup Kossert" ? 


The Question Answered; 
or, The Freshie Not So Fresh 

There was a lordly Senior, 
Who, one fine autumn day, 

Unto a wee, small Freshman 
These words so sage did say : 

"Now can you truly tell me, 

My little son so dear, 
Whence comes our reputation 

For erudition here?" 

And, while the pompous Senior 
This question did propound. 

He pointed to the buildings 
The campus clust'ring round. 

"This wisdom of the ages 
The "Profs" to us impart, 

Do you think you can tell me 
Whence did it get its start?" 

"Yes, sir," the Freshie murmured, 
(A meek and humble "yea"), 

"The Freshmen bring the learning; 
The Seniors take none away." 

F. M. VS. 


Acute Indigestion 

"Help" it was the stentorian voice of "Dave" Evans ringing across the campus. 

"Gug-ag-ssch-ink-z-wuzish" ; gurgled from the throat of "Polly" Strickler who 
was lying, "hors de combat," upon the ground; Bang! Bang! Bang! came the noise 
from the hastily opened windows in the boys dormitory. From the windows came 
kind hearted friends, with hands willing to help, and hearts deeply stirred at the 
pitiful sight before them. 

The two gentlemen had been having a controversy as to which was the most 
skilled in the interesting but brutal art of wrestling, and seemingly "Polly" had suf- 
fered the consequences. 

"Dave" assisted by Bender and "Fabe" Stengle carried the raving man into 
Stengle's room. Nothing could have been more fortunate for him, for in the room 
at the time was Frank Van Schaak, who after a careful diagnosis of the case, took 
off his coat, rolled up his sleeves, and assumed the role of physician which fitted him 
as though he were preparing for that profession, instead of that of a poet which he 
now pursues. 

"Ssch"; the new M.D. hissed. Immediately, the dozen fellows in the room 
were silent. "It is acute indigestion," he said, and hastening to his room, returned 
a few seconds later with his bottle of Aromatic Spirits of Ammonia. This he con- 
siders the elexir of life and the remedy for all evils. 

Entering the room in which the sick man was lying he began the heroic and 
tedious battle for his comrades life. For two whole hours the fight went on, vacil- 
lating between victory and defeat, while through the most critical part of it came the 
calm cool voice of the doctor, "hand the ammonia," or "if you are gentlmen you will 
leave the room," to the crowd of boys who in their anxiety concerning the condition 
of their afflicted friend continually congregated in the room, thereby diminishing the 
quantity of life-giving oxygen, a fact which was explained to them by their learned 
school mate. 

At last the crisis was over and "Polly" was dragged back from the land of 
shadows, without the aid of his family physician, who had been summoned some 
time before-hand. His pulse beat more regularly if more feebly, his furious paroxysms 
lost much of their violence and all he needed was quiet and rest, which "Van" secured 
for him by forcibly ejecting from the room the interested but noisy spectators. 

Indeed the condition of the sick man was so much improved that he dressed and 
went to the dining hall for supper, although this was against the advice of Dr. Van 
Schaak who greatly feared a relapse. 

Some time later after "Polly" had been thoroughly cured of his trouble ; Frank 
said: "If I have been of any assistance in this sad affair, I must contribute all of this 
aid to the effects produced by the AROMATIC SPIRITS OF AMMONIA." 





Broke! Broke! Broke! 

Broke! Broke! Broke! 
I'm as broke as the waves of the sea. 
I would I could fling in their clutches, 
The bills that have come to me. 

Ah, well for the millionaire sport, 
That he rides in his automobile 1 
Ah, well for the "noveau riche," 
That he eats his Waldorf meal. 

And the creditors still come on 
And camp at my chamber door ; 
But oh, for the sight of my vanished cash. 
And the credit that is no more. 

Broke! Broke! Broke! 
How I wish they were all in the sea ! 
And the day that my credit is good, 
Soon come breaking in upon me. 

S. P. Ort. 

Rodes (in the prep) : "I am thoroughly disgusted with you Hypochondriacs." 
Editor's note: A Hypochrondriac is a person afflicted with Hypochondria. 





"If a man takes a young girl to the opera, spends eight dollars for supper and 
after the performance, takes her to her house, should he kiss her good night"? 

Ed Mutch: "I don't think she ought to expect it; seems to me he has done 
enough for her already." 

Doc Walters: "Tom, you haven't enough brains to get a headache." 
Tom Lyter: "Shut up! If your brains were dynamite and there were to explode 
it would not blow your hat off."

Dear Sir: 

I would like to receive some information through the columns of your book. I am 
greatly puzzled over the attitude of the girls of L. V. toward myself. I am aware 
that I am the most handsome man in the school, have the most aristocratic bearing, and 
am thoroughly at home at the most formal social function. I am especially because 
of my gold teeth which I show at every possible opportunity. Notwithstanding these 
facts, I am very modest and generous with everything that I can not use myself. It 
seems impossible for me to keep a girl longer than two weeks. No matter how much 
I condescend to offer my company, each girl embraces the first opportunity to turn 
me down. My aim at a high social position demands that I have a female companion. 
I wish you woud advise me how to apply my social efficiency so that it will be better 


X. Y. Z. 

The Bizarre can offer no advice ; the facts in the case are too evident.

Bizarre 1915. 
Dear Sir: 

I am invited to attend an afternoon tea given by the English Professor and must 
have a little advice. Will it be necessary to wear a full-dress suit? If so would it be 
proper to wear my red fore-in-hand ? Shall I wear a belt or suspenders ? 

Is it best to tip the waiter or to pay for the tea when it is served ? What should 
I do if I should have to cough when my mouth is full of tea? Should I apologize or 
accuse her of doping me? Would it be proper to offer the hostess a cigar? And 
when done eating should I wipe my mouth on my handkerchief or on my coat sleeve ? 

Please answer these questions for my social reputation depends upon my conduct 




'€~'i''^ r'^-t^jt ^f^ 

By all means go in evening dress. It is preferable to dispense with the tie entirely 
unless you are unable to secure shirt studs. A piece of rope or a fancy scrap of ribbon 
may be substituted for suspenders. If the waitress is obliging, you should show your 
gratitude by shaking hands with her or lightly kissing her brow. Do not tip her, but 
bv all means pay the hostess for the lunch. It is very poor form to ask for credit on 
such formal occasions. 

In case you choke, call a doctor and ask your hostess to pay the bill. 

You may offer her either a cigar or a pipe, but best of all a chew of tobacco. 

Wipe your lips on the table cloth. Before leaving take your hostess' hand and 
addressing her by her middle name, tell her how much you enjoyed the tea, ask her 
how much she paid for it, and tell her that you are ready to help her out on any 
similar occasions. In leaving be careful not to stumble over the porch rug. 


Dear Father: I have just gotten out all of m\' work for tomorrow and before 
going to bed will write you a brief letter to let you know that I am well and getting 
along splendid in my classes. The last Semester grades are out and I got one A plus, 
two A's, and the rest were B's. So you see I am getting along unusually well. 

Am singing in a church choir in Lebanon now and we practice three times a week. 
It is a good occupation but the expenses run pretty high. The laboratory fees and 
books for my course this semester have been high too, so I am about broke. I have 
gotten those returned checks from the bank as you asked me to and am sending them 
to you. I also want to join the White Cross Single Standard League next week and 
the fee is $5.00. Give my love to mother and the rest of the family. 

Hoping to hear from you soon, 



Checks as follows : 

C. B. Gollam — History book 

J. Rutherford — Cash, carfare to choir practice, &c.

THE FACULTY — is composed of only good lookers, says Miss Johnson. She said 

they gave her some 
PRESENTS — at the last meeting, and she expects a good many more as they will have 
SIX — more meetings soon. Ed Mutch bought 

POOL TABLES — and will start in business soon. This happened 
TO THE — surprise of his friends. Edward is very "much" liked by the 
BOYS — and we hope he will make good. 
OF — course he will not let "Russ" Weidler shoot "ouch" unless he has his cue 

(sad tail). 
THE — new pool parlor will be called "The L'Argentine." The 
DORMITORY — boys will now learn to be sharks, with this advantage. 

PRESSURE — plus atomic weight equals specific gravity. That ain't right and I 

know it. It almost 
BREAKS — my heart to think that 
MISS SCHMIDTS — kind care and attention over the girls will soon come to an 

end. Some of these warm afternoons let's all go out and view the 
BRIDGEWORK— of the Quitapahilla— it's instructive. 

CORPORAL SNAVELY'S — new suit is a bird, he now needs a new pair of suede 

pumps. His theatrical 
ENGAGEMENT — with ^Manager Frohman will start next week. He will play 

the part of the pill in "The Prince of Pilsen," he is 
CALLED — the real, live, Chester D'Vaughin, and is making quite a hit with the 

females. Some people say he's a little 
OFF — in the noodle. 

PROF. SHELDON — the mad Creatorian Bandmaster would be a peach at orchestra 

work, ain't? He 
LOSES — his position as trainer of the society for perpetuation of hyena companion- 
HIS — organization disbanded early in the season. "Fat" Lutz's 
ANGELIC VOICE — proved too much for civilization.

On the Trail of the Thallophyte 

A band of lads and lassies gay 

I chanced to meet one autumn day 

Upon a rural winding way, 

Over the hills and far away. 

The sun shone bright, the day was fair ; 

The young folks looked full debonair ; 

Though joyous they, and free from care, 

Thev wore a scientific air. 

Though asked I not, still I could see 

They were a class in Botany. 

Some carried boxes which enclosed 

The tiny Algae which reposed 

As symbionts with saprophyte. 

Or cherished by a parasite 

Which close enfolded in embrace 

These microcosms of Algal race. 

Some of the band their hats did trim 

With lichen thallus to the brim ; 

While others carried kerchiefs white. 

Hiding the tiny Thallophyte. 

Their guide I saw, so learned, wise. 

His knowledge surely would surprise 

The sages of antiquity. 

I righth' guessed that he must be 

Professor in some famous school 

Where erudition has its rule. 

Why, I believe this teacher knew 

Most all the plants that ever grew; 

And why they grew and whence their names. 

And all the parts that each one claims. 

This learned man did me invite 

To join the hunt for Thallophyte. 

Full eagerly I joined the class; 

But straightway found how much, alas! 

About the plants I did not know 

That everywhere about us grow. 

While on the trail of Thallophyte, 

Our leader found some chestnut blight. 

We crowded 'round that chestnut tree 

To hear the pest's life history — 

The camera winked, and here you see 

The class, that day, in Botany. 

F. M. VS. 


'Would vou call Cotton DeHuff's bicycle an Emery wheel." 

1st Fresh.: "Did you telegraph for that money?" 

2nd Green One: "Yes, I telegraphed 'Where is that money I wrote for' "; the 
answer came "In my inside pocket." 

Here's to love and unity, 
Dark corners and opportunity. 

Pennsylvania Punch Boivl. 
Get your girl and unity 
Then take your opportunity. 

A grind is a man that will sit up all night and think over things that a fool never 
thought of. 

Miss Bieverson: "We had a feast fit for a King the other day. It contained all 
the delicacies of the season." 

Miss Dasher: "What did you have?" 
Miss Bieverson: "Hash and succotash." 

"Say, Kreider, what made the canoe tip over?" 

Pat: "Oh, I carelessly put my cigarette in the corner of my mouth." 

Life is one darn thing after another. 
Love is two darn things after each other. 

Dave Evans: "Doc, I don't know what is the matter with me; I can't sleep, I 
have no appetite — ." 

Dr.: "Why don't you propose." 

Class Stones : Freshman — Emerald. 
Sophomore — Soapstone. 
Junior — Grindstone. 
Senior — Tombstone. 


If college bread is a four years' loaf — Some people say it is — please tell where 
the flour is found, for those who Knead the dough. 

E. Snavely: "Say, Jakey, this steak isn't very tender. 
Jakey: "What do you want it to do, — Kiss you? 

Prof. Wanner (in Ag. ) : "What is the best environment for calves?" 
: "Silk stockings." 

Polh- (with team in N. Y.) : "What is that awful noise?" 
Berghy: "Mebbe that is that there Long Island Sound." 

Girl's Boarding School — An institution of yearning. 

"A friend in need is a friend to avoid." Ye Crabbe. 

The average man's arm is thirty inches in length; the average woman's waist is 
thirty inches in circumference. How wonderful are thy works, O Nature! 

"Why does Bender close his ej'es when he sings?" 

"Because he has a tender heart." 

"I don't quite understand." 

"Mavbe he cannot bear to see us suffer." 

"Did you ever do any shooting, Dave?" 
Dave: "No, but I took Triggernometry."

Sic SeTnper- Co-nsta.tilu.s 


'OR years Annville has been noted for the valiancy and efficiency of its police 
protection, but never in the annals of local administration has this reputa- 
tion been better justified than by the startling energy of the force in the 
Kreider chicken case. It seems that Mr. John Kreider having missed four fine pullets 
concluded as usual, that they had been taken by students. Immediately consulting the 
college cooks Kreider found that some chickens had actually been brought in by two 
students — Wagner and George. 

He procured a warrant for their arrest. Then being joined by the town constable 
and fortified with an immense quantity of Iron City beer, he made an excursion to 
the college dormitory in quest of Wagner and George. In answer to their questions 
the two sleuths were directed to various sections of the building which do not exist 
and the culprits were not to be found. Wagner, himself helped the ignorant officer 
in the search. 

At this point the lights throughout the entire building were suddenly extinguished 
and the police farce hearing water pouring into buckets made a scrambling, cursing, 
but hasty exit. The next couple hours the gallant constable spends in recruiting and 
deputizing a few additions to the force and intrenching his courage with prodigious 
quantities of beer and rat gut. 

His vigor renewed by this fresh encouragement and accompanied by his co- 
partner, the worthy Mr. Kreider, the copious officiary wended his staggering way to 
the girls basket-ball game where they gallantly and loudly accused certain young 
ladies of stealing chickens. Finally they make a reappearance at the dormitory. Here 
energetic preparations had been under way. At the head of each stair way a fifty 
gallon garbage can, loaded to the brim with filthy water, stands delicately balanced 
and numerous water buckets placed handily by. The beloved cop begins to mount 

the stairs when the lights are again extinguished and then ! Without warning 

fifty gallons of chilling water is launched fairly upon the ascending police farce. With 

■",s^^« .aT^^^^^'^^r"? tl^-ef ' -^ 

?^ . M 

a shivering gasp the constable and his deputy turn and malce a precipitous get-a-way. 
Having changed his make-up, the clever detective spent the rest of the night at a 
respectable distance from the dormitory, ignoring the complimentary invitations which 
were hurled at him from every window and choosing to keep his elegant person beyond 
reach of the more stable favors which might be hurled at him from closer range. Thus 
it stood until the wee small hours summoned all to bed. 

All was peaceful until the middle of dinner on the following day, Sunday. Then 
the constable, still accompanied by Kreider abruptly appeared in the dining hall and 
asked for Weidler's table at which the fowls were said to have been devoured. Chief 
Waiter Strickler informed them that it was customary on Sundays not to set that 
particular table, showing him a vacant one which really happened to be situated next 
to the table in question. Mr. Police Farce blocked the doorway and for a short time 
was a target for jokes and flying missiles from all parts of the dining hall. One of 
the girls, at this point, left the room and soon Mr. Jamison attempted to follow, but 
he was greatly overawed when the worthy sleuth drew a 38 calibre revolver and 
ordered him to remain. Jamison remained and the young lady who had left returned 
with a kodak and now things begin to happen. 

Jamison, taking the kodak trains the lens upon the valiant hero who guards the 
exit as Horatio defended the Bridge. But here the horatio-like gentleman changes his 
tactics and proceeds to insult all the lovers of decency in the room. We say the 
insult was general, but considering the abnormal intelligence of the gentleman we 
may conclude that it was intended in main for the ladies only. But insults to ladies 
are avenged by men and the brave official finds himself enveloped by a determined and 
vengeful horde who advance amid raining missiles and in spite of his flourishing .38. 
They sweep him out into the hall ; his limbs are pinned and held powerless ; his 
monstrous revolver is wrenched from his trembling fingers. Howling and pleading 
he is shot out of the door like a catapult, to land in a heap as per illustration. Sic 
Semper Constabulis. 


Be flush, and your friends are many ; 
Be broke and you haven't any. 


Prof. Shenk: "Either my lecture is tiresome or some certain young gentleman 
was out all night." 

Stick: (Yawning) "Both." 

Miss Johnson: "Mr. Snyder, give an example of barbarism." 
Lester: "Lovingly yours." 
Falba: "That is exactly correct."

"A Few Pages from Frank" 

Here's to Mother Freed 

Come, all ye students, rally round, 
A hearty pledge we'll give; 

We'll all be true to ^Mother Freed 
As long as we shall live. 

It's "Mother" here, it's "Mother" there; 

It's "Mother" everywhere. 
No easy matter 'tis, my lads, 

To shoulder all her care. 

For now someone comes in to beg 
"A thread and needle, please"; 

And now the cook comes up to say, 
"We're needing more canned peas." 

And now it's table-cloths the\- need ; 

And now it's drinking glasses; 
And now the grocer has forgot 

That barrel of molasses. 

And there! the salt has just run out; 

The cooks are in a fright ! 
But, oh ! it's patient Mother Freed 

Who alwaj's sets things right. 

And now the pudding's made too thick. 
And now the soup's too thin. 

Again, expense is running up, 
And bills are running in. 

And there! one waiter drops a tray; 

Another has the grippe ! 
And Sankey Ernst has gone away 

Upon a glee-club trip. 

And now some guests come walking in, 
Then "Mother" seats must find; 

But "Mother" always has a smile, 
Whatever's on her mind. 

'Tis Mother Freed up early gets 

To look after our weal : 
Perchance to order up some beef, 

Perchance a haunch of veal. 


She sees that all the doggies red 

Are cooked from head to tail ; 
And seldom do these little pups 

To please our palates fail. 

Just think of all the hungry mouths 

That she each day must fill ! 
The classes come, the classes go, — 

Yet Mother Freed's here still. 

Refrain : 

O, here's to Mother Freed, my lads, 

O, here's to Mother Freed ! 
She's just the kind of matron 

We college students need. 
Come, lassies too, you'll pledge her true — 

O, here's to Mother Freed ! 

F. M. VS. 

To Nineteen-Seventeen 

O here's to the lads and lassies 

Of Nineteen-seventeen, 
Who have so truly honored 

The wearing of the green. 

They wear it on the outside ; 

Their matter within is grey. 
We haven't seen such a likely class 

For many a good long day.

Where Memories Abound 

Tune: ."Auld Lang Syne." 

To thee O Lebanon Valley fair 

In homage true we bow ; 
The sacred laurel we would wreathe 

Around thine honored brow. 

Dear Lebanon to thee 

Our songs we raise, 
And may the golden future bring 

Thy meed of praise. 

From East to West our country o'er 

Thy children turn to thee ; 
From Maine's stern shore to Golden Gate 

Where rolls the sunset sea. 

Thy beacon, Truth, upon our way 
Sheds bright its radiant glow; 

Oh ! may we in the days to come 
Full honor to it show! 

How sweet the strains thy spruces play 

In sylvan symphony! 
While round thy towers the lofty elms 

Breathe soft their minstrelsy. 

And when each year the robin's song 

Proclaims returning spring. 
Before our eyes will rise the groves 

Where Lebanon's songsters sing. 

Dear to our hearts thy storied halls 
Where memories fond abound. 

Where Wisdom true with power speaks 
Full many a word profound. 

And as the years successive pass. 

And ivy hides thy walls. 
Still will our hearts in answer leap 

When Lebanon Valley calls.

The Recompense of Time 

How swiftly fly our feet along life's course 

Forever in pursuit of fleeting Time, 

Which, ne'er o'ertalcen, e'er leads on apace 

The toiling soul toward life's eternity ! 

We reach a milestone on the way of life — 

Alas! We find that Time was there before, 

But on has passed to ne'er return again. 

But hold! Is there no boon that Time has left? 

Do no impressions mark the striving soul ? 

No tribute from the passing of the years 

As recompense for effort nobly spent? 

Aye, true — , in those dim regions of the soul, 

Where spark celestial ITghts the human realm 

The years have stored their pearls of worth untold — ■ 

Those gems of knowledge which each passing day, 

Each fleeting hour, each minute e'en of Time, 

Has set in memory for future days; 

And there await the summons of the mind 

To stand revealed in golden memory. 

And thence brought forth before th' imperious bar 

Of consciousness supreme that rules the soul. 

And makes, or unmakes, all our human selves. 

We are today what we have thought before 

Engraven on the tablets of the soul. 

Which ne'er's revealed unto the outer world. 

Save when the lips, those guardians of the self 

That lies within, are opened to bespeak 

To other selves the heart that lies behind 

The curtained windows out through which the mind 

Perceives the wonders of the world around. 

Or when the face, that tell-tale mirror oft 

Of secret thought, reflects what passes in 

The human brain. 

And so, as on we tread 
The way of life amid its shifting maze 
And build ourselves upon our inmost thought. 
Full well it were if we our conscious gaze 
Should lift above to those eternal hills 
Along the vale of thought, where glow 
The high ideals that guide the spirit up 
To those fair plains of glory where reside 
Those beings faithful in their earthly sphere.

Credit To Whom Credit Is Due 

As the staff submits to the public the sixteenth annual volume of the Lebanon 
Valley College Bizarre, it is fitting that credit be given to those outside the staff who 
so kindly ofifered their invaluable aid toward the completion of the book. To Pres. 
G. D. Gossard, we are indebted for the article, "The Future Lebanon Valley" and 
the great encouragement he gave the staff. To Miss Florence Boehn, Head of L. V. 
Art Department, George A. DeHuff, and C. M. Stauffer, of Hagerstown, Md., is 
due credit for much of the success of our art efforts. To these and to all who have 
assisted in the production of the 1915 Bizarre, we feel deeply grateful and the Class 
offers their most sincere thanks.
