BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



VOL. XXXIV. 



BRUNSWICK, MAINE, APRIL 22, 1904. 



NO. I. 



THE OXFORD SCHOLARSHIPS. 

The first examinations for entrance to 
Oxford University under the provisions of the 
will of Cecil Rhodes took place in the Judi- 
ciary Department room of the State House at 
Augusta, last Wednesday and Thursday. The 
examinations were presided over by Mr. Stet- 
son, State Superintendent of Schools, and 
Frank H. Whitmore. Assistant Librarian of 
Bowdoin College. The following men took 
the examinations : Clement Robinson, '03, 
Leon D. Walker, '03, John M. Brigham, '04, 
David R. Porter, '06, all of Bowdoin; and 
Edwin C. Bearce, '05, of the University of 
Maine. 

There were six papers given of two 
hours each, in Latin and Greek prepared read- 
ing, Latin and Greek Grammar, Arithmetic, 
and Euclid or Geometry. The papers were 
practically the same as the Responsions which 
are always given for entrance to Oxford. 

According to present plans the papers will 
lie read in England and from those successful 
in passing these examinations one man will be 
chosen by the Bowdoin Faculty next month 
who shall take up his residence in Oxford the 
second week of next October. Next year a 
Colby man will have the appointment and then 
as only two men are to be there, from each 
state at one time, and the course is of three 
years duration, a man will be appointed from 
Bates two vears later and after that Univer- 
sity of Maine, so that Bowdoin will 'not have 
the privilege of appointment again till 1910. 

Each scholarship carries an annual pay- 
ment of $1,500, which is rather more than the 
average Englishman at Oxford spends each 
year. " In brief, the story of this scholarship is 
as follows : When the " will of the English 
multi-millionaire, Cecil Rhodes, to whom, 
more than to any one man or body of men, 
was due the Boer war, was made public, it 
was found that he had left the sum 
of $30,000,000 for the establishment of 
scholarships at Oxford University, Eng- 
land, to be known as the Cecil Rhodes scholar- 
ships. It provided for the education of young 
men in the United States and the colonies of 



Great Britain. By the terms 01 the scholar- 
ship each state in the Union sends, the first 
year, one young man to the University, while 
each colony sends three. 



THE APRIL QUILL. 
Among many things that seem to indicate 
a discouraging'lack of interest in things liter- 
ary, it is decidedly cheering to note the admir- 
al i!e support that is given to the Quill by 
undergraduate contributors. If our memory 
serves, the four numbers of the present volume 
are nothing to either Faculty or alumni — a 
condition of affairs which indicates a capable 
editorial board and a healthy interest on the 
part of the college. We should like, however, 
to call attention to the fact that when the Quill 
was founded, one of its purposes was to bring 
alumni interested in literature into closer touch 
with the undergraduates ; and we should sug- 
gest to the present board that the value of the 
Quill would be enhanced by the appearance 
now and then, of an article by a graduate of 
the college prominent in public life or in lit- 
erature, such men as General Howard, Con- 
gressman Alexander, or Professor Arlo Bates, 
to mention only those .who have contributed 
in the past. It seems also a pity that the edi- 
torial column termed Silhouettes has been so 
often suppressed :. for it furnishes an admira- 
ble opportunity for the expression ex cathedra 
of undergraduate sentiment, particularly on 
those matters which concern the literary policy 
of the college. The editorial board is, on the 
other hand? to be highly commended for the 
encouragement it gives, personally and 
officially, to all contributors and for its care- 
ful criticism of every article proffered. 

With regard to the April Quill no high 
praise can be given : as compared with pre- 
vious numbers it is by no means distinctly 
creditable. The poetry is rather rough ; there 
are no essays ; and the stories as a whole 
show a deplorable tendency toward that bane 
of undergraduate fiction — melodrama. An 
exception occurs perhaps in "One April Fool," 
a simple and well told tale by E. A. Duddy, 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



'07, where the plot is not pretentious and the 
dialogue is blight. But "The Triumph of 
Mother," and "Chocura's Arrow," by F. E. 
Seavey and W. J. Norton, respectively, are 
distinctly weak stories and by no means in 
such good style as their authors have shown 
themselves to be capable of in the past. With 
respect to the poetry a "Serenade" by J. W. 
S., '06, has some pretty rhythm to it, though 
according to our way of thinking, the author 
reverses the processes of nature when he 
writes 

"The mist hangs low on the ocean. 
The fog lies low on the land." 

"Nielan, the Atheist," an Easter poem by 
Stanley P. Chase, '05, although long-drawn- 
out, is a graceful rendering of an interesting 
legend. The metre used, however, leads inev- 
itably to doggerel. "From the Gates," by D. 
R. P., has the merit of brevity. The "Goose 
Tracks" seem the best part of the number; 
they are witty, pungent, and if once or twice 
unduly coarse, have force and ability. In 
conclusion, we should like to ask why when 
there is no room for Silhouettes six pages are 
devoted to Ye Postman and "clipped" poems 
on crocuses and roses. We hope that the 
May Quill may show a decided improvement. 



BASE-BALL OUTLOOK. 

During the past two weeks the base-ball 
team has been steadily practicing out doors 
under the direction of Coach Shannon, 
"Pop" Williams and Captain Cox. The can- 
didates have been greatly hampered and 
retarded by the cold weather, which, together 
with the earliness of the season, makes it 
extremely hard to give any estimate of the 
probable strength and make-up of the team. 
The battery outlook is the best for a number 
of years. The pitching material comprises 
Captain Cox, Oakes, Lewis, with Piper and 
Doherty to be tried out. Stone, a Freshman 
who has made quite a reputation behind the 
bat, will undoubtedly be the catcher, while 
Bavis and Lawrence will substitute. For 
first base there are three candidates, Wiggin, 
Clark and Johnson. Wiggin has showed the 
best form thus far, and should he continue to 
improve as he has during the past week, will 
in all probability hold down the initial bag. 
There are three candidates for second base, 



Lewis, Clarke and Martin. This position is 
entirely new to Clarke, wdio has been accus- 
tomed to playing left field, but in practice he 
fills the position satisfactorily. Lewis and 
Martin field well, but are weak at the bat. 
White has the undisputed position, of short- 
stop, a position which he filled with credit last 
season. For third base there is a sharp con- 
test between Hodgson and Gould with honors 
about even. Both are good fielders and fair 
hitters. For outfield positions there are a 
number of good men including Kinsman, Red- 
man, Day, Philoon, Houghton, and Robinson. 
The team will play its first game of the 
season with Bates Saturday, on Whittier 
Field. The Bates team has been delayed in 
getting outdoors, but reports from Lewiston 
state that the team has put in hard work this 
week in preparation for the first championship 
game. 



GLEE CLUB CONCERT. 

The Musical Clubs gave a concert in the 
Opera House at Westbrook last Friday even- 
ing, before a fair-sized audience. Though it 
had been felt that the concert could hardly be 
up to the usual high standard, owing to the 
fact that the men were more or less out of 
practice, nevertheless, the numbers were 
enthusiastically received by the audience, and 
the clubs as a whole did much better work 
than they hoped to do. The numbers of Archi- 
bald and Ryan were particularly well received. 
The program was the same as at other con- 
certs this season, and which has already 
appeared in the Orient. 



MASS-MEETING. 

An enthusiastic mass-meeting was held in 
Memorial Hall, on Wednesday evening of last 
week, for the purpose of arousing interest in 
track athletics, and although it was not as 
largely attended as is sometimes the case, it 
was one of the most pleasing and satisfactory 
meetings that has been held in co'.lege for a 
long time. 

Coach Lathrop was the first speaker, and 
his address was a plain, unvarnished tale of 
the condition of track athletics. In it he 
showed a thorough knowledge of the situation 
here at Bowdoin, and — what is more — had 
definite ideas as to what should be done. 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



Among other things, he spoke of certain heed- 
lessness on the part of candidates for the team 
in the matter of training, and of others who 
are not candidates, who, with equal heedless- 
ness, interfere with the training of the men. 
He believed that aside from this thoughtless- 
ness, Bowdoin has the spirit and the mate- 
rial to put out a championship team. 

Professor Robinson was the next speaker, 
and his speech was bright and witty — a "ra- 
dio-active" one — and withal fraught with 
sound common sense. He dwelt largely on the 
splendid spirit that is apparent in the college 
at the present time, and which he believed to 
be equal, if not better, than at any time since 
he has been connected with the institution. He 
expressed himself as being an optimist in this 
matter of track athletics, and firm in the con- 
viction that Bowdoin's team will be a winner. 

Manager Hall and Captain Rowe also 
made brief addresses on the present outlook, 
and emphasized the necessity of hard work. 
Manager Hall dwelt particularly on the finan- 
cial aspect of the situation. 



MASSACHUSETTS CLUB RALLY. 
During the vacation just past the Massa- 
chusetts Club improved the opportunity to 
entertain prospective students in that locality 
by tendering them a banquet at the Berkeley 
in Boston. The gathering was of an informal 
nature, consisting of speeches and a general 
good time. There were twenty-seven in the 
party, six of whom were graduates, nine 
members of the club, and thirteen 
"Prep"' school men. Among the speakers 
were John Frederick Eliot, '7$, head- 
master of the East Boston High School, 
Edward F. Merrill, '03, and Leon V. Walker, 
'03. The committee having the affair in 
charge and to whom is due much of the suc- 
cess of the occasion consisted of Weld, 05, 
Powers, '06, Jenks, *o6, Chandler, '07, and 
Wilson, '07. 



MEETING OF INTERCOLLEGIATE 
ATHLETIC BOARD. 
In accordance with Article 6 of the rules 
drawn up at a conference of representatives of 
the four Maine colleges at Waterville, Novem- 
ber 26, 1902, a meeting of the Intercollegiate 
Athletic Board was held at Lewiston Satur- 
day afternoon at the DeWitt. Bowdoin did 
not ae'ree to Article 6 of these rules and was 



not represented, but representatives from the 
other colleges of the State were present. The 
principal topic for discussion was the eligi- 
bility rules. No action was taken, but certain 
rules of e'igibility will come up later. The 
meetings of the Athletic Board are held semi- 
annually and are for the purpose of settling 
matters of dispute and establishing a more 
friendly relation among' the Maine colleges. 



PRESIDENT HYDE GONE SOUTH. 
On Monday morning President Hyde left 
for an extended tour of two weeks through 
the Southern States in connection with the 
Conference for Education in the South. A 
special train carries the members on the trip 
and all the important educational centers will 
be visited. From April 26 to 30 he' will be at 
Birmingham, Alabama, and will also visit on 
the way Hampton, Tuskegee, and other places.

_. In assuming: the responsi- 

The New Board. .... , , s , . f 

bihty of the thirty-fourth 

volume of the Orient the new board of edi- 
tors is keeny sensible of the great responsibil- 
ity which has come upon it. We realize that 
inasmuch as this paper is read not only by the 
Faculty and students of Bowdoin College, but 
also by our alumni throughout the country 
and by some men in other colleges and prepar- 
atory schools the opinions expressed in these 
columns must be accepted as the opinions of 
the entire college. When in our endeavor to 
set forth the views of the college we present 
them in a wrong light, we ask your leniency, 
and correction. In return for whatever suc- 
cess we may attain, we ask only your con- 
tinued generous support. We hope to have 
the Orient keep pace with the advances being 



made in the other departments of the college, 
and to publish a paper that will at all times be 
a credit to the institution. A college paper 
is very largely a criterion of the college. It 
shall be our endeavor that the Orient may 
ever be truly regarded as such and that it may 
faithfully reflect the character, spirit and 
opinions of the student body. We desire to 
call especial attention of the college at this 
time to some departments of the Orient which 
have never been utilized in any sense of the 
word and in particular one which has caused 
previous editors any amount of annoyance and 
unjust criticism. These are the departments 
of Alumni Personals and Communications. It 
is evident to everyone that the alumni depart- 
ment of any college paper can be made suc- 
cessful only as those for whom it is intended 
co-operate with the editors in making it so, 
and this department of the Orient this year 
will be valuable and interesting just in pro- 
portion as class secretaries and other alumni 
contribute to its columns. We feel that each 
class secretary owes it to this college and the 
other alumni to make known through the 
medium of the Orient the doings of the 
alumni in his class. The Communication Col- 
umn is another department of the Orient 
which of late years has suffered a serious 
relapse. This department is always open to 
everyone who desires to take advantage of it. 
We are, of course, wholly dependent on out- 
side contributions for the continuance of this 
department and therefore request the aid of 
the student body that we may make the 
Orient more truly a publication of the stu- 
dents of Bowdoin College. Special effort will 
be made this year to make the editorial col- 
umn the most important part of the paper. 
The object of our editorials will be not only to 
express the true sentiments of the student 
body but in a certain sense form those senti- 
ments. Our editorial policy will ever be con- 
structive rather than, destructive. Whenever 
there is occasion to criticise, the Orient will 
not hesitate to criticise, and whenever there is 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



occasion to bestow commendation, we will not 
hesitate to commend. But whether we do the 
one or the other we will strive to maintain 
broadened views. With these intentions the 
present board enters upon its new career. 



A communication appears 
Faculty and on another page of this 

Boards in Gowns issue expressing an opin- 
at Commence- ion with which we can all 
ment. heartily sympathize. We 

all would like to see the 
Faculty and the members of the Boards in 
caps and gowns at Commencement, but in all 
justice let it be said that two years ago a reg- 
ulation was passed looking toward this end, 
and many came last June prepared to wear 
academic dress, but since many others were 
not provided it was thought best for none to 
wear the gowns at that time. Possibly this 
year, the change will be made, but we should 
remember that such innovations are bound to 
be perfected slowly. 



To-night Bowdoin meets 

Amherst.Bowdoin Amherst for the third 

Debate, time in debate. Since the 

choosing of the team two 
months ago every man has applied himself 
with vigor. Few of the students can realize 
or appreciate the vast amount of work which 
lias been done by these men, until it is called 
to their attention. It has meant taking incom- 
pletes, self-sacrifice and a denying of all the 
pleasures about us. Never has a Bowdoin 
debating team worked harder or more faith- 
fully than this one. The subject presents 
many sides, is one of great interest and both 
teams are evenly matched. Every student 
should realize the importance of attending this 
debate and should show a hearty appreciation 
of the hard work done by our representatives. 
Whether Victory or Defeat is recorded, lend 
them your heartiest support. 



One thing our very sen- 
Athletic Training. ., , , " , 

sible track coach brought 

out at the mass-meeting, the Orient, 
at the risk of being tedious, takes occasion to 
reiterate. The importance of strict training 
cannot be overestimated by the candidates for 
the track team. Training should be espe- 
cially observed by distance runners. In these 
races, strength and endurance count for as 
much as speed, and a man in order to win 
needs every particle of strength and every 
shred of endurance he possesses. In order to 
gain these highly necessary qualities, no pro- 
longed physical strain, such as dancing, should 
be undertaken, and sufficient sleep should be 
indulged in. It is a lamentable fact that many 
of our most promising candidates have vio- 
lated these primary principles of late. We 
hope the words of Coach Lathrop will be 
heeded better the remainder of the season. 



Bates Game. 



The first base-ball game 
of the championship series 
will be played on Whittier Field to-mor- 
row afternoon, with Bates. Both teams 
have been unfortunate in being deprived of 
much valuable practice by the weather and 
for this reason we are not able to draw any 
logical comparison between the two teams. 
We do not wish to be over-sanguine nor to 
underestimate Bates' strength, but we predict 
that the game will be a close one. The 
Orient hardly thinks it is necessary to urge 
the undergraduates to turn out to the game 
and we hope to see several of our near-by 
alumni present. 



The Loss of Two 
Prominent 

Trustees. 



It was a source of great 
sorrow to all Bowdoin men 
to hear of the death, 
scarcely a week apart, 
of two of the college's trustees and most cher- 
ished friends. Dr. Smyth and ex-Chief Justice 
Peters. Both were men who had deep love 
for the college, and who were always desirous 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



and attentive to her welfare, and their loss is 
a sad blow indeed to Bowdoin. They were 
examples of the rugged, upright character 
which Bowdoin has ever stood for, and it will 
be many years before the memory of them 
and their deeds will die out from the hearts of 
Bowdoin men. 



Communications. 



It is with pleasure that we 
New Member. . ... , 

announce the election ot 

W. J. Norton, '05, to the editorial staff of the 
Orient to fill the vacancy caused by the resig- 
nation of A. L. McCobb, '05. 



IRelujious Botes. 



NEW Y. M. C. A. OFFICERS. 

At the annual election of officers of the Y. 
M. C. A. held the last week of last term the 
following new men assumed control of the 
Association work for next year : President, 
Greene, '05 ; Vice-President, Porter, '06 ; 
Recording Secretary, Goodhue, '07 ; Corre- 
sponding Secretary, Philip Chapman, '06 ; 
Treasurer, Bavis, '06. Several plans have 
been made for enlarging the work and practi- 
cal efficiency of the Association, and from the 
members various committees will soon be 
appointed to carry these plans to a successful 
completion. 

During the spring term the Sunday 
addresses will not be held weekly, but the 
prayer-meeting will be held every Thursday 
evening at 7.15 in Bannister Hall. The com- 
mittee in charge of these meetings have 
arranged an attractive list of topics for each 
meeting and every member should have one 
of the new topic cards. 

The men in the Freshman Bible Study 
course have decided to keep up their work dur- 
ing the spring term and the class will meet 
every Saturday night promptly at seven 
o'clock. It is planned to close the season's 
work with a banquet in June. 



The Brunswick minstrels gave their annual show 
the 13th. The boys always have a good production 
and this year was no exception. Several of the 
young alumni took part in the performance. 



Editors Bozvdoin Orient: 

It has been ten years since I was able to 
attend Commencement exercises at Bruns- 
wick, so I have not kept abreast of your fash- 
ions ; but in speaking, a few days since, with a 
member of the Bowdoin Club of Boston, who 
has been more fortunate than I, I was a little 
surprised to learn that old Bowdoin has not 
yet fallen into line with many other prominent 
colleges on the cap and gown question. It was 
his impression that there was a spasmodic 
attempt a few years since to array the Faculty 
on Commencement day after the approved 
fashion ; but for some reason that has been 
abandoned, apparently, and now only the 
President and the Senior Class appear in uni- 
form. 

If the above are facts, permit me to enter 
a brief plea, through your columns, that the 
cap and gown be made a regular and pre- 
scribed form of dress, not only for President 
and Seniors, but for all members of the 
Faculty. Trustees, and Overseers who take 
part in the procession on Commencement Day. 
There is something in this simple and graceful 
dress that connotes scholarship, is reminis- 
cent of the learning of the fathers, is satisfy- 
ing to graduates, and undeniably impressive 
to undergraduates and the uninitiated who- 
view these modest mysteries. 

I am not an advocate of fuss and feathers. 
Even in my boyhood I never had especial rev- 
erence for gold lace and gilt buttons, or an 
insane and irrepressible desire to chase after 
the band-wagon. But a procession of those 
who stand for advanced scholarship seems to 
me more appropriately clad in flowing robes 
than in severe civilian costume. Then apart 
from personal preference is it quite prudent to 
ignore the silent voice of fashion ? The clay 
is soon coming when a neglect of this custom 
will smack of the rural or the eccentric, and 
Old Bowdoin is neither. She was 

Not the first by which the new was tried 

and that, perhaps, was well; but now that 
others have set the fashion may we not hope 
that she will be 

Nor yet the last to lay the old aside. 

If the matter of cost should deter some 
from favoring this appeal, it may be stated 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



that caps and gowns are often rented for such 
occasions at a small figure. A hundred or 
more could be procured by any responsible 
agent in Brunswick and rented to such as 
should not desire to purchase.

in the next issue. 

The late Judge Peters, a man noted for his wit 
and clever sayings, once summed up the argument 
for the superiority of the small college in a clever 
sentence of a brilliant after-dinner speech: "Per- 
haps," he said, "if a boy goes to Harvard or Yale 
he goes through more college ; but if he goes to 
Bowdoin, more college goes through him." 

President Hyde has sent to each alumnus of the 
college a letter asking him to state the business he is

together with the year in which he graduated. No 
signatures are wanted. The purpose of the letters 
is to secure figures to show the pecuniary advan- 
tages of a college education, in order to meet rep- 
resentations that are being made by a certain class 
of institutions which claim that the pecuniary advan- 
tage of a college education is comparatively slight. 

All the men in college regret that Walker, '04, 
has left college, but are pleased to know that he has 
a fine position in a New York banking house with 
excellent prospects of advancement. It would seem 
to be regretted that he was unable to complete his 
course before accepting the offer, but it is possible 
that he may be able to make up his work at some 
future time. Letters received from Don state that 
he is getting along finely. He has the best wishes 
of every man in college. 

It is noted with pleasure that the Bowdoin Band 
is to give open-air concerts on the steps of the Art 
Building during the present term. The College 
Glee Club will also, it is hoped, add to the music. 
It would be hard to find a more enjoyable or pleas- 
ant way of bringing the students together than these 
sings. Several were held last year and they were 
all pleasant affairs. It is not necessary to devote 
the evening entirely to college songs, for popular 
airs will doubtless be in favor. The first concert 
will be held as soon as the weather will permit.

REV. EGBERT C. SMYTH. 

Rev. Egbert Coffin Smyth, A.M., D.D., died at 
Andover, N. H., Wednesday, April 13, 1904. In the 
death of Dr. Smyth Bowdoin loses one of her most 
loyal and honored sons, a member of the Board of 
Trustees for many years, and a man who has always 
retained his love for his Alma Mater. Dr. Smyth 
was born at Brunswick, Me., August 24, 1829, and 
graduated from Bowdoin in the Class of 1848, 
receiving Phi Beta Kappa honors. He studied 
at the Bangor Theological Seminary and 
then completed his education in Germany. 
Shortly after his return he became Profes- 
sor of Rhetoric at Bowdoin and was con- 
nected with the Faculty of the college until 1863, 
when he was offered and accepted the Chair of 
Ecclesiastical History at the Andover Theological 
Seminary. In 1878 he was appointed president of 
that institution, a position which he filled with great 
ability until the time of his death. He was a writer 
of note, an editor of the Andover Review, and con- 
tributed much to the religious press of the country. 
He was a broad-minded, liberal Christian, but 
strong in his belief of right and wrong, a man of 
uncompromising rectitude. He was unswerving in 
his devotion to his idea of the proper course, as was 
shown by the way he bore himself in the Heresy 
Trials preferred against him, when he sacrificed 
much for the sake of his principles. By his death 
Bowdoin loses one of her truest friends, a man who, 
perhaps more than any other one man, has been 
intimately connected with the college for the last 
forty years. Other men may have given money, 
but no man has given more time and attention to 
Bowdoin than he. He always returned at com- 
mencement and always labored for the interests of 
his Alma Mater. He was an overseer of the college 
in 1874. a trustee since 1871, and a welcome speaker 
at the alumni dinner — in short, an honored son of 
Bowdoin, a man whose whole life reflects glory on 
the college that nourished him. 



EX-CHIEF JUSTICE PETERS. 

By the death, on April 2, 1904, of John Andrew 
Peters, LL.D., Bowdon loses one of its truest 
friends. Ex-Chief Justice Peters was born at Ells- 
worth in 1822 and graduated from Yale in 1842. He 
was a member of the State Senate in 1862 and 1863. 
and Attorney-General of Maine from 1864 to 1866. 
He served as a Representative in the National 
House from 1867-1S73, where he showed great abil- 
ity and was universally esteemed by the men of all 
parties. In 1873, his ability and fitness being recog- 
nized by the State, he was appointed to a position on 
the supreme bench, and in 1883 was made Chief Jus- 
tice, a position that he held until his resignation in 
1900. He was given an honorary degree from Bow- 
doin in 1885 and was made a trustee of the college 
in 1891. He was an upright, noble man, an honor 
to the degree he held, and one who always showed 
great love for Bowdoin. 



DR. ISRAEL T. DANA. 
Dr. Israel Thorndike Dana, A.M., M.D., died at 
Portland, Wednesday, April 13, 1904. Dr. Dana was 
born in Marblehead, Mass., in 1S27, and graduated 
from Harvard Medical School in 1849. After spending 
three years in further study at home and abroad, he 
settled at Portland, Maine, in 1851, and commenced 
the practice of medicine there, where he remained 
until his death. Dr. Dana has ever been honored 
and esteemed in his profession. He has been an 
earnest worker in all the movements for the caring 
of the sick and improving the health of the commu- 
nity. He was one of the founders of the Portland 
Dispensary, and of the Portland Medical School for 
Preparatory Instruction, and of the Maine General 
Hospital. In i860 he was appointed Professor of 
Materia Medica at the Maine Medical School, and 
in 1862 Professor of Theory and Practice. He has 
been president of the Maine Medical Association, 
County Medical Association, and a member of the 
Association of American Physicians. As a physi- 
cian Dr. Dana was one of the leaders in the State 
in all branches of general practice. Aside from his 
profession, he was an earnest -church worker and a 
man who was universally respected by all who knew 
him. He received the degree of A.M. from Bow- 
doin in 1887. Although not a graduate • of the col- 
lege, he has always shown great love for the place. 
He leaves a wife, daughter, and two sons, Francis 
W. Dana, Bowdoin, '94, and Ripley Dana, '01. 



1fn /IDemoriam. 



By the death of Rev. Egbert Coffin Smythe, D.D., 
of the Class of 1848, the Kappa Chapter of Psi Upsi- 
lon has lost one of its most loyal and honored mem- 
bers. 

For the past 40 years he had been in the closest 
touch with the college and with the fraternity, and 
it is with the deepest sorrow that we mourn his 
death. He was a man of broad intellect and won- 
derful mental power and had gained a high stand- 
ing in his chosen profession. As a member of both 
boards of the college he was held in the highest love 
and esteem by all his associates. 

The Kappa Chapter deeply mourns his loss and 
extends its heart-felt sympathy to his bereaved fam- 
ily and friends.

BRUNSWICK, MAINE, APRIL 29, 1904. 



NO. 2. 



BOWDOIN WINS FROM AMHERST 
IN THE ANNUAL DEBATE. 

In the annual debate between Amherst and 
Bowdoin, held in Memorial Hall last Friday 
evening, the home team clearly demonstrated 
its superiority over the Massachusetts col- 
lege and the unanimous decision of the judges 
was in their favor. The hall was packed to 
the doors with an enthusiastic audience when 
Harold M. Sewall of Bath took the chair 
and announced the subject of the debate: 
"Resolved, That, aside from the question 
of amendment to the constitution, the welfare 
of the American people requires the Federal 
regulation of industrial combinations com- 
monly known as trusts." Bowdoin had selected 
the question and Amherst had chosen to defend 
the affirmative. 

Each speaker was allowed ten minutes for 
an opening speech with the exception of the 
first man on the affirmative who was given 
three minutes extra for introduction. Five 
minutes was granted each debater for his 
rebuttal speech. 

James Bartlett Eastman of Pottsville, Pa., 
opened the debate for Amherst. He outlined 
the growth of trusts, showing how they have 
frequently changed their forms and thus made 
their control difficult. He said that the affirm- 
ative would show that there were positive evils 
in the trusts, and the past has shown that the 
states are unable to regulate these evils ; for 
these reasons the Federal government must 
regulate them. Some of the evils are to 
undersell in one place in order to choke com- 
petition and to make up for a possible loss by 
overcharge in another locality. A perfect 
analogy of federal regulation of trusts is the 
law in regard to National Banks which now 
gives these financial institutions satisfactory 
supervision. 

Philip Maclean Clark of Cambridge, 
Mass., opened the discussion for Bowdoin by 
showing that Federal legislation would over- 
work every department of our national gov- 
ernment. The fundamental theory of our 
whole government is that the federal govern- 



ment shall have no more power than is 
granted by the states. Federal legislation 
would break down the cordial relations now 
existing between the central and the local gov- 
ernments. Supervision of this kind means 
placing it in the hands of committees and pol- 
iticians. When tried in the case of the rail- 
roads it has been very inefficient. It has suc- 
ceeded in the case of National Banks because 
there is only one question involved, but the 
trusts are many sided. 

John Francis Kane of Gardiner, Me., was 
the next speaker and was warmly welcomed 
by his many friends in the audience. He said 
that trusts could never be controlled by the 
states alone, for they were trying to create 
revenue for the treasury instead of benefiting 
the public. Such control is unsuccessful 
because the regulation of them is confined to 
the courts of the creating states. Laws passed 
by the states are for the welfare of the individ- 
ual state and not for the public at large, while 
the trusts are national in character. 

Edwin LaForest Harvey of Bethel, was 
the next speaker on the negative. He said 
the evils of trusts had not been shown to be 
large enough for federal interference. The 
popular idea is that there are two great inter- 
ests which require regulation of trusts; the 
investing interest and the consuming interest. 
Of these two classes the investors are amply 
protected at present. They neither desire nor 
deserve assistance from the government. 
The government should not sacrifice itself to 
protect this small class of Wall Street specula- 
tors. The consuming interest is well pro- 
tected because prices cannot go above the com- 
petitive level without inviting competition and 
thus lowering prices again. Only a few 
trusts are now able to control more than 60 
per cent, of the output of any commodity, so 
there is little danger of the consumers suffer- 
ing from monopoly. 

Fayette Brown Dow of Rochester, N. Y., 
closed the debate for Amherst. A careful 
reading of the question, he said, would show 
that the affirmative does not need to show the 
definite kind of legislation necessary. The 



JO 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



federal government would adopt such as 
would be sufficient. But if there is to be such 
legislation it must provide for greater public- 
it)- of the accounts of the trusts so the public 
will not be deceived ; it must oblige the trusts 
to sell to all purchasers and in every locality 
without discriminations ; it must cause the 
publication of reports of all earnings and 
profits, that the stockholders may be well 
informed. Necessary public interests natur- 
ally come under Federal control and as trusts 
are now national in scope the control must be 
as big as the object to be controlled. 

The last speaker for Bowdoin was Wil- 
liam Edward Lunt of Lisbon. He said 
monopolies might be produced in three ways: 
by the ownership of some natural monopoly; 
by the grant of patent rights ; by discrimina- 
tions, as in transportation facilities. In no 
strictly industrial combination can a natural 
monopoly be secured. The object of patent 
rights is to give a monopoly, for the govern- 
ment considers that the good more than out- 
weighs the evil effects. The way to prohibit 
monopoly through discriminations is to abol- 
ish causes of discriminations ; this involves 
regulation of the railroads not regulation of 
trusts. This may be done by granting pool- 
ing, and by securing greater efficiency in the 
Interstate "Commerce Committee. 

Harvey, the first man in rebuttal for the 
negative, said that the affirmative must show 
not only that trusts are national in character, 
but also why the Federal government should 
regulate them. It is the investor's business to 
see that he does not put his money into 
watered stock. 

Eastman for the affirmative said that the 
government was able to stand more work as 
they had been able to support the bank laws. 
Investors are not protected now, for every 
trust publishes tissues of lies to fool investors. 

Lunt in rebuttal gave figures to prove that 
all trusts have grown smaller, growing away 
from monopoly. If investors did not put in 
their money until they knew facts then there 
would be publicity enough. 

Kane of Amherst in his rebuttal speech 
emphasized the opening arguments to show 
that publicity was necessary for our welfare. 

Clark closed the debate for Bowdoin by 
showing that the affirmative had not proven 
the necessity of any legislation, so we cannot 



logically argue as to where any legislation 
shall come from. 

Dow of Amherst closed the debate by 
reviewing briefly the work of both sides and 
emphasized the fact that trusts by combina- 
tion have become national in character and 
can be dealt with only on national grounds. 

All the speakers received much applause, 
especially during the rebuttal speeches, when 
it was seen that the Bowdoin men were not 
only refuting their opponents' arguments but 
were adding new facts to strengthen their 
own positions. It is worthy of notice that 
while Bowdoin lost the debate last year in 
being unable to successfully rebut, it is gener- 
ally conceded that in this way the debate was 
won this year. 

The judges, Professor Thomas Nixon 
Carver of Harvard University, Professor 
Bruce Wyman of Harvard University, and 
Professor George E. Gardner of Boston Uni- 
versity, then withdrew and after several min- 
utes announced the decision in favor of the 
negative. Professor Carver, chairman of the 
committee, took the opportunity to congratu- 
late both sides on their spirit of fairness, the 
lack of quibbling, and the general . knowledge 
of the question which both sides had shown. 

During the evening music was furnished 
by the college orchestra under the leadership 
of Bridgham, '04. At the close of the debate 
the students gathered on the campus and 
cheered both teams, while the Bowdoin cheers, 
often repeated, were accompanied by the 
chapel bell. 



MR. COPELAND'S READING. 

Friday nearly the entire college crowded 
into the Physics Lecture Room to hear Mr. 
Copeland of Harvard read Kipling. Mr. 
Copeland has the reputation of being the best 
reader of Kipling in America, and we cer- 
tainly believe he lived up to his reputation. 
In a brief introductory talk, the reader said 
that Mr. Kipling had never created a charac- 
ter, but he had invented a type; and that he 
had never written a novel. He classed Kip- 
ling's poetry with that of Byron in antithesis 
to Wordsworth and his class. Then Mr. 
Copeland proceeded to read"Mandalay," "The 
Truce of the Bear," "Mr. Dooley on the Truce 
of the Bear," "The Bellbuoy," "Tommy

Atkins," "The Raw Recruit," and other selec- 
tions. In conclusion he characterized Mr. 
Dunn (Mr. Dooley) as not only a humorist 
but a philosopher besides. 



"NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE"— LEC- 
TURE BY MR. C. T. COPELAND OF 
HARVARD. 

The lecture on Nathaniel Hawthorne deliv- 
ered by Mr. C. T. Copeland of Harvard, 
under the auspices of the Ibis, last Friday 
night, was largely attended. Myrton Bryant, 
on behalf of the Ibis, introduced the lecturer 
in a very brief but excellent speech. Mr. 
Copeland opened the lecture by showing the 
advanced stand which Hawthorne took, in the 
period before the war, when men were all too 
apt to be sectional rather than national. Haw- 
thorne was a strict Puritan of the New 
England type, and up to 1839, his life had 
been spent within the narrow compass of 
Sebago Lake, Bowdoin, and Salem. Genius, 
then, was inherent in the man, for besides this 
his father and a long lineof ancestors were sea- 
captains, not one of them college-bred. Here 
was a departure from the usual New England 
writer, always hitherto the descendant of a 
long line of clergymen. For twelve years 
after he left college, Hawthorne was a recluse 
in his mother's house in Salem, brooding and 
writing delightful obscure things, taking long 
walks, and drinking deep from Nature's scen- 
ery. In the obscure chamber of his mother's 
house, Hawthorne himself said, fame was 
found during those years. In 1839 he was 
appointed to a position in the Custom House 
which he soon lost. In 1842 he married Miss 
Peabody of Salem and they lived a happy mar- 
ried life, although often beset with poverty. 
But through all the dark days the little wife 
stood by him and cheered him on. All these 
years the surroundings of the man were mak- 
ing deep and lasting impressions upon him, 
which he afterwards transmitted to his works. 
In 1853, President Pierce, his old class-mate 
in college, and his life-long friend, appointed 
him to the consularship at Liverpool. Three 
years previous he had published the "Scarlet 
Letter," and fame, tardy to be sure, but none 
the less welcome, came to him. While at Liv- 
erpool the "Marble Faun" appeared, which 
showed a widening of perception, a surprising 
thing in a man of fifty. From that time on 



he was accorded fame in every land. In May, 
1864, he started with Pierce to visit Bowdoin, 
the love of his boyhood, but he got no farther 
than Plymouth, where he died May 18, 1864, 
as he wished, his spirit passing in the peace- 
fulness of sleep, his bed surrounded by Emer- 
son, Longfellow and Holmes. The relation 
of his books to his experience was very 
marked. A Conservative and a Democrat, he 
was by no means a narrow man. He was a 
fearless champion of right, a lover of beauty 
and a delver in books. Spenser and Bunyan 
were his favorites. 



AN ALL COLLEGE MEET. 

An all college meet, composed of regular 
students, specials and medics, will be held 
to-morrow afternoon on Whittier Field. The 
primary object of this meet is to try out all 
the men for the Maine intercollegiate meet, 
which will be held May 14. The different 
events which will be run off are the 100- and 
200-yard dashes, quarter, half, mile and two- 
mile runs, high jump, pole vault, broad jump, 
discus and hammer throws, and the shot-put. 
This is the first time that such a meet has 
been held for a number of years and it 
devolves upon all the undergraduates to make 
this meet a success. Give the track team your 
moral support and the manager your financial 
support by paying the small admission fee. 



'68 PRIZE SPEAKING. 

The annual '68 Prize Speaking Contest 
will take place in Memorial Hall, May 
10. The speakers and their subjects 
this year are : Myrton A. Bryant, "Crime 
and Social Progress ;" John M. Bridg- 
ham, "The Permanence of the Classics;" 

George W._ Burpee, "The New World 

and the Expansion of European Thought;" 
Philip M. Clark, "The President's Panama 
Policy ;" Marshall P. Cram, "Ruskin's 
Message;" and Samuel Dana (excused). 
Music for the evening will be furnished by the 
college orchestra. 



CLASS OF 1S99. 
Arthur H. Nason, who is pursuing post-graduate 
work in Columbia, has been awarded the University 
Fellowship in English. This is the highest scholar- 
ship honor in the English department at Columbia.

Now the debate is over and 
Debating Insignia. . . . , , , 

Bowdoin has added vic- 
tory to her record, it is time to think of giving 
the debaters some distinctive mark. This 
matter has been suggested by the Orient 
before but as yet the undergraduate body has 
proven itself inattentive. A man who makes 
the debating team surely works hard enough 
to win some college symbol that tells of his 
good work. Certain undergraduates, we 
understand, while admitting the general truth 
of this, object to the granting of a mark, 
because they say such a thing should be dis- 
tinctive of athletic ability. So it should, when 
the four 'varsity letters are concerned, and 
the Orient will admit that a mark worn on a 
sweater should denote an athlete, and an ath- 
lete alone. But give the debaters some other 
emblem; the right to wear a "B" with crossed 
gavels on his cap, and perhaps on a 



jacket such as the base-ball men wear now, 
although the athletic constitution does not 
warrant it. If not that give them letters after 
the same style which the members of the 
musical clubs wear. We sincerely hope the 
college will cast off its old indifference in 
regard to this matter and take some action. 
The debating team brings us honor, fellows, 
so let's reward it. 



By securing the services of 
The Ibis such a gifted and scholarly 

and Hawthorne. man as Mr. C. T. Cope- 
land, the Ibis has placed 
itself where it may worthily receive the thanks 
of every undergraduate. The lecture was 
one such as has rarely been heard in Bowdoin. 
The subject of the lecture surely showed the 
interest of the Ibis in the college, .ind was a 
fitting introduction to the Hawthorne centen- 
■ nial which we celebrate this year. And best 
of all, it was an undergraduate introduction, 
which marks a departure in the life of the col- 
lege. The Ibis by taking the lead in such a 
departure has proven its right to guide the 
intellectual life of the college. The Orient 
wishes to extend the thanks of the undergrad- 
uate body to the Ibis for its delightful enter- 
tainment. 



In winning the annual 
Amherst= Bowdoin debate against Amherst, 
Debate. the members of the debat- 

ing team have conferred 
an honor on the college such as no body of 
undergraduates has done for several years. 
To the team as a whole, to the debaters indi- 
vidually, and to the members of the second 
teams who have worked with them, the col- 
lege owes and extends its congratulations and 
gratitude. With opponents who had the 
prestige of two years' victories, who had 
already won a reputation for oratorical abil- 
ity, and who had the popular side of the ques- 
tion, the men who represented Bowdoin real- 



BOWDOIN ORIENT.

ized that they had a duty to perform and the 
way they did it was evident to everyone who 
heard their clear-cut arguments, their sys- 
tematic presentation, and their keen rebuttals 
on Friday evening. To hard, conscientious, 
and self-sacrificing work alone is the victory 
due. This was shown more clearly in the 
rebuttals of the negative speakers when they 
dislodged their opponents from every possi- 
ble position the affirmative were able to 
assume and in a forcible manner strengthened 
their own arguments. 

The members of the Amherst team deserve 
much credit for the arguments they put up. 
Their work throughout was marked by clear- 
ness, vigor and perfect fairness. The deliv- 
ery of each man showed much natural ability 
and experience in the art of debate. In fact, 
no more complimentary thing can be said of 
the Bowdoin team than that they were judged 
to have presented a better argument than was 
presented by such a strong team as represented 
Amherst. 

To those interested in the work of debat- 
ing in Bowdoin this debate meant much. It 
showed positively that such a course in debat- 
ing as was conducted last fall, or a more 
exhaustive one, is necessary to our success in 
debating in future years. It is the exception 
'that a good debater is born so ; careful train- 
ing and hard work will give us more such 
victories as this one. 



In another column appears 

The Foot=BalI the foot-ball schedule as 

Schedule. arranged by Manager 

White for the season of 

1904. The list is made up of eight games, four 

of which are to be played on the home grounds. 

In addition to our regular opponents we meet 

Brown for the first time in several years. It 

is a source of pleasure that we were able to 

- secure this game so late in the season, when 

both teams will be in good condition. The 

chief interest of the season will center around 



the State games, which are the most impor- 
tant from a Bowdoin standpoint. We con- 
gratulate ourselves upon the schedule, and 
hope that it is but a foretaste of a successful 
foot-ball season for 1904. 



The Bates Game. 



The base-ball rarae of last 



Saturday gave us our first 
opportunity of seeing what our team is like 
and to form some idea of what we may expect 
of them during the present season. It may 
be said that the gamewasbothencouragingand 
discouraging — encouraging in that the play- 
. ing of some of the men was of the gilt-edge 
order ; discouraging in that the exhibition of 
others was very ragged. The fielding was 
perhaps the most commendable feature of the 
game, and while there was no occasion to go 
into ecstasy over even this, it is certain that it 
was far superior to other features. The bat- 
ting as a whole was poor, and but for the 
splendid stick work of three or four members 
of the team, the first game would have been 
a defeat. The base running was also poor. 
With some exception, there seemed to be a 
small amount of head work in this department 
and no knowledge of when to take chances 
and when not to. We realize that this was 
the first game of the season and that the team 
has had hardly any practice, yet we feel that 
this is not sufficient excuse for some of the 
poor playing in Saturday's game, and hope 
to see a better exhibition in the coming games. 



The band did good work 
Base=BalI Rooters. . . , . 

Saturday, considering that 

six men were absent, which was due to the 
vacation of the medics and to other reasons. 
The cheering helped pull out of the hole; it 
was strongest when most needed. But right 
here we would call attention to the fact that 
in order to have efficient cheering, the student 
body must occupy the same part of the grand- 
stand. With the band at one end and the 
singers at the other it is impossible to work 



14

together. ' Last fall it was generally under- 
stood that the west end of the stand was for 
the rooters. Unless some good reason is seen 
for changing this arrangement, let everyone 
plan to sit there in the future unless he has 
something apart from the game and the cheer- 
ing- to claim his attention. 



'05, are promising men in the two-mile. With 
such an abundance of material and such a 
determination as is being displayed by the 
contestants, Bowdoin's chances for a victo- 
rious team are of the brightest. 



TRACK ATHLETICS. 
Systematic track work has been somewhat 
interrupted and delayed of late on account of 
the poor weather, but this week Coach 
Lathrop has been gradually trying out the 
new material and developing the old with 
encouraging results. For the first time in 
several years we have a squad of pole vaulters 
and a decided improvement is looked for in 
this event. Winchell and H. Lowell are the 
contestants. 

In the weights there is a large squad at 
work. Aside from Denning whose ability is 
unquestioned, there are Dolloff. Med., H. 
Chapman, '06, Hermes, '04, Chandler, '07, and 
McMichael. '07, who are working hard and 
developing fast. The jumping squad is larger 
than heretofore and particularly in the broad 
which includes Capt. Rowe, R. E. Shaw, 
Stewart, Jenks and Grindle. Clark, '04, the 
high jumper, may be able to jump by the time 
of the meet, but aside from him no promising 
material has appeared. 

The sprints are strong events this year and 
it will require marvelously fast men to beat 
Bowdoin's squad. Bates, Jenks, Weld of last 
vear's team are in the lead and a large squad 
of new men are working with them. 

Capt. Rowe, '04, and Webb, '05, constitute 
our 'varsity material in the hurdles, but 
Tobey, Bass, Childs and Gumbel are proving 
themselves capable men. 

Quarter milers are out in abundance. 
Everett, '04, is easily in the lead, but much 
good material is being developed in Doherty, 
Stewart, Weld, Laidley and R. Hall. 

Davis, '05, is the foremost candidate in the 
half-mile. This event has the largest number 
of contestants of any and includes Marston, 
Med., Craigie, C. Hall, McRae and Webber. 
The squad of milers is large and is the best 
that Bowdoin has had for some time. Shorey, 
'07, Sewall, '06, A. T. and A. C. Shorey are 
promising men, while Norton, '05, and Shorey,

MAKE PREPARATIONS NOW TO ATTEND 

THE BOWDOIN-MAINE GAME, 

AT ORONO, WEDNESDAY, MAY 4th. 

Colletje IRotes. 

The college band has an engagement to play in 
Bath on Memorial Day. 

The Polecon Club met with W. S. Cushing, 
Tuesday night, at the Deke House. An enjoyable 
time was reported by all. 

The Boston Globe of last Sunday contained a 
photograph of Dr. Whittier, together with a col- 
umn and a half article on his blood tests. 

Marshall and Merrill of last year's team, and 
Walker, who spoke for Bowdoin in 1902, were 
among the alumni who attended the Amherst 
Debate. 

In the Portland Argus of Saturday, April 23, 
was given an account of the Brown Memorial Fund, 
its donor and all of those holding the scholarships 
given from- it. 

Dame Rumor has it that Newman at Colby is 
putting the shot forty-one feet. Rumor is too often 
a false prophet, and we have good reason to believe 
that Bowdoin will win the shot-put this year as 
usual. 

A recent addition to the art resources of the 
library has been made by the generosity of Mrs. 
Lydia H. Dwinel who has presentee a portfolio con- 
taining fifty-two large engravings of Raphael's fres- 
coes in the Vatican at Rome. These illustrate scenes 
from the Bible, and, since the originals have been 
much injured by the lapse of time, are of some 
historical value, as the engravings date from the last 
century. 

In place of the pins formerly worn by the mem- 
bers of the Deutscher Verein, the club has obtained 
medals, after the Harvard style. These may be 
worn either on ribbons across the breast, or as 
fobs. The medals themselves are very neat, con- 
taining on one side the Verein's circle, combining 
the German eagle and the college coat-of-arms, and 
on the other the name of the club and a place for 
the wearer's name to be engraved. The whole is 
very attractively made up. 



A series of seven addresses on "Literary Gems 
from the Biblical Literature" was begun Sunday 
evening, April 10, by Rev. Herbert A. Jump, pastor 
of the First Parish Church. The titles of the 
addresses are as follows : "A Ritual-Hymn for the 
Hour of Sacrifice;" Psalm 118. "A Love Lyric 
of Judaea ;" The Song of Solomon. "A Triumphal 
Ode for a Double Choir;" Judges 5. "A Dialogue 
on the Drought;" Jeremiah 14-15. "A Cluster of 
Pilgrim Songs;" Psalms 121 seq. "A Rhapsody of 
the Locusts ;" Joel. "A Mystical Drama of the 
Divine Yearning;" Isaiah 51-53.

BASE-BALL. 

Bowdoin and Bates played one of the most 
exciting games of ball on the Whittier Field, Satur- 
day afternoon, that has been seen here for a long 
time. At no time could it be told who would carry 
ofif the honors and the 400 people present certainly 
got their money's worth of base-ball. It took ten 
innings to settle the contest. Bowdoin seemed to 
have a slight advantage in the early part of the 
game, but at the beginning of the ninth with Bates 
two scores in the lead, it looked rather dubious for 
Bowdoin. Bates made more errors than Bowdoin, 
but rather excelled in bunching hits. 

The game opened with Wood at the bat for 
Bates. He sent the ball out between right and cen- 
ter for three bases. With no one out, Oakes set- 
tled down and struck out Austin and Doe. Beau- 
man was out on a grounder to Clarke. 

For Bowdoin, White was out on a grounder to 
Kendall. Stone hit for two bases to right field. 
Clarke struck out, and Cox made first on a 
grounder between first and second. Wiggin hit to 
left, scoring Stone and Cox.. Wiggin was caught 
trying to steal second. 

In the second inning, neither side scored. 
Rogers hit to Oakes, Bowers was out on a hit to 
White, and Kendall went out on a grounder to sec- 
ond. Gould was the first man up for Bowdoin and 
was out on a fly to Doe. Kinsman and Redman both 
struck out. 

In the third Dwinal singled. Mclntyre hit to 
Clarke, and Dwinal did not leave first. The wrong 
man came in from the field and consequently both 
were out. Austin was out on a hit to Clarke. 

In the fourth inning Bates made two runs, tying 
the score. Doe was out at first, Beauman got a 
base on balls, Rogers made a two-base hit, scoring 
Beauman. Bowers got his base and Kendall a hit, 
sending in Bowers. Dwinal sacrificed and Mclntyre 
struck out. In Bowdoin's half Wiggin hit to sec- 
ond and was safe on an error. Gould was out on a 
hit to left field. Kinsman got his base. Redman 
struck out and Oakes was out on a fly to third. 

In the fifth and sixth innings neither side scored. 
No one saw second on either side. Bates secured 
no runs in the seventh. Wood was out on a fly to 
second, Austin hit to center and was out, while- 
Doe went out on a fly to White. Bowdoin made 
two runs in this inning. White singled and Stone 
struck out. Clarke got a two-bagger, soring 
White. Cox singled. Wiggin went out on a fly

to center. Cox then started to steal second, holding 
the attention of the Bates team while Clarke scored. 

In the eighth Bates got in some good work. 
Beanman got a base on balls, Rogers singled sending 
Beauman safely to second. Bowers then got a base 
on balls and the bases were full. All was needed 
was a good hit and Kendall succeeded in getting 
a two-bagger, scoring three runs. Dwinal went 
out on a fly to Redman. Wight, who batted in place 
of Mclntyre, was out at first. Wood got a hit, 
scoring Kendall. No Bowdoin man saw second in 
this inning, and Piper, who batted in the place of 
Redman, was the only one who reached first. 

With two runs necessary to tie the score, Bow- 
doin went into the ninth — with grim determination. 
White singled, but was out on a steal to second. 
Stone hit for three bases and Clarke singled, scoring 
Stone. Cox hit for two bases and Clarke scored on 
Wiggin's fly to the outfield. This ended the scor- 
ing and it stood 6 to 6. 

In the tenth Bates tried hard to score, but did 
not succeed. Kendall reached first, Dwinal sacri- 
ficed. Kendall was caught at third and Austin went 
out on a hit to Wiggin. For Bowdoin, Oakes sin- 
gled, and White did the same thing, but Oakes was 
caught at second. Stone flied out to Doe. Then 
Clarke came up for his fourth hit and got a three- 
bagger, scoring White and winning the game.

HON. A. T. STEARNS. 

On February 12 occurred the death at Reno, 
Nevada, of the Hon. Arthur Tappan Stearns, of the 
Class of 1865 of Bowdoin College. He was born in 
Lovell, Maine, April 30, 1840, and after fitting at 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



17 



Fryeburg and Bridgton entered college, but left 
when President Lincoln issued his call for volun- 
teers, serving with honor until the close of the war. 
On leaving the army he lived for a short time in 
Pennsylvania and then went West and grew up with 
the country. In 1878 he went to Cherry Creek, 
Nevada. From- here he was elected to the State 
Assembly, serving one year, end was then chosen 
Principal of the State University at Elko. From 
Elko he went to Eureka where he taught in the pub- 
lic schools and from where he was sent to the State 
Senate for four years. After several years he went 
to Ely, White Pine County, where he served two 
terms as County Clerk and was elected to the office 
of District Attorney and Superintendent of Schools, 
in which capacity he was serving when he went to 
Reno for medical treatment, two years ago. Mr. 
Stearns was a man of strong character and unusual 
ability. He was broad-minded and generous even 
to a fault and held the respect and confidence of his 
fellow-men. He was a loyal Bowdoin man and the 
news of his death comes as an especially sad shock 
to the many graduates of the college who knew 
him. 



DR. JOSIAH C. DONHAM. 
Dr. Josiah C. Donham died at his home, Thurs- 
day evening, April 7, at the age of sixty-six years. 
Dr. Donham was born in Hebron and graduated 
from Hebron Academy in 1864. He entered the 
Medical School of Maine the same year and after 
completing his course graduated under a suspension 
of rules, in 1867, as he was only nineteen years old 
then. He has passed his life a respected and hon- 
ored physician, practicing at Lewiston, Me., and his 
death will be mourned by many friends, both within 
and without the profession. 



HON. JOSEPH A. LOCKE. 
Hon. Joseph A. Locke died at his home, in Port- 
land, Thursday, April 22. 1904. Mr. Locke was 
born in Hollis, Me., December 25, 1843. He moved 
to Biddeford in early childhood, and prepared for 
college at the Biddeford High School. Entering 
Bowdoin in the Class of 1865. he graduated with 
honors. After receiving his degree he taught in 
Portland High School, studying law; at the same 
time, with Davis & Drummond. In the year 1868 
he was admitted to the bar and in the following 
year to practice in the federal courts. He proved 
himself a man of such upright integrity and sturdy 
honesty, that he was elected to the State House of 
Representatives, the only unquestioned member dur- 
ing the famous counting-out difficulties. At the 
next session he was elected to the Senate, and 
became president of that body, holding the distin- 
guished honor of being the only member ever 
elected to that position on his first term: For four 
years he served on the Governor's Council with 
great distinction. Wearied of public duties he then 
returned to his law practice in Portland. He was a 
man of sterling worth, of staunch honesty, and 
noble principles. His life was one of great faith, 
the embodiment of upright and unquestionable 
truth. Bowdoin mourns his death as the loss of 
one of her true nobility.

SPRING FOOT-BALL PRACTICE. 

Spring foot-ball practice began this week 
and will last till the end of the term. The 
work will be rudimentary, consisting of kick- 
ing signals, catching, tackling and formations. 

Although a large per cent, of the college 
is taking part in the other branches of ath- 
letics it is hoped that many will avail them- 
selves of the opportunity of getting a good 
start for the fall work. Everybody who comes 
out now will receive individual attention and 
will never have a better opportunity to learn 
the elements of the game. 

It is hardly necessary to add that any one 
who has had any ability or past experience 
should feel duty-bound to take part in this 
listit work. 



DESIGN FOR ORIENT COALER. 

The Orient Board contemplates a change 
in the cover design of Bowdoin's weekly 
paper. With this end in view any student or 
alumnus is requested to send to the Business 
Manager before May 15 any appropriate or 
distinctive darwing which he shall have made. 

These drawings will either be submitted 
to the student body or to a committee com- 
posed of one member of the faculty, two 
members of the Orient Board and two mem- 
bers selected from the college at large. If a 
suitable design can be secured ' it will be 
adopted by the Orient and a suitable price 
paid to the person who shall have submitted it. 



SECOND TEAM SCHEDULE. 

Assistant Manager Putnam has announced 
the following schedule for the second team. 
Negotiations for a Massachusetts trip are 
going on, the result of which will be 
announced later. 

May 7— Kent's Hill at Kent's Hill. 

May 11 — Lewiston High at Brunswick. 

May 25 — Cony High at Augusta. 

May 30 — Rockland High at Rockland. 

June 1 — Cony High at Brunswick. 



GOLD MEDALS FOR DEBATING 
TEAM. 

Through the generosity of a former stu-

team which defeated Amherst will be awarded 
gold medals, suitably struck to designate their 
work. 



IReligious Botes, 

The meeting last Thursday evening of the 
Y. M. C. A. was led by Burpee, '04, and the 
time was given up to a discussion of mission 
work in Japan. The work among college 
men in Japan to-day is little short of remark- 
able. A solo by Ryan, '07, added much to the 
enjoyment of the service and the attendance 
was one of the largest of the year. 

Next Thursday the subject, "The Abuses 
of Silence" will be in charge of Newton, '05. 

Last Sunday afternoon the chapel vesper 
service was conducted by President Hyde, 
who spoke briefly on some of the impressions 
derived from his recent tour through the 
Southern States.

Maine vs. Bowdoin To-Morrow 
Afternoon at 2.30. 

J. C. Minot spent Sunday at the college. 

The Massachusetts Club met with Jenks, '06, 
last Saturday evening. 

Professor Dennis has granted adjourns to his 
classes all this week. 

Philoon, '05, is attending the Alpha Delta Phi 
Convention in Chicago this week. 

Professor Dennis was one of the judges in the 
Hebron-Coburn debate, last week. 

Coombs of Colby, will pitch for Lowell this 
season, according to the newspapers. 

The History Club met with Stone, Monday night. 
A paper by Clarke was enjoyed very much. 

The Kennebec County Club met with Johnson, 
'06, Wednesday night. A pleasant time was 
reported by all. 

Several of the Freshmen were suspended from 
recitations last week on account of failures to pass 
off entrance examinations. 

Colbv had some difficulty in taking its recent 
Massachusetts trip from the fact that four members 
of the team were not up in their studies. 

The beautiful loving cup which H. W. Varneywill 
give to the best all-around player on the base-ball 
team is now on exhibition in his show window. 

The Bowdoin College Glee and Mandolin-Guitar 
Clubs will give a concert, followed by a dance at 
the Bath Grange Hall, Wednesday evening, May 11. 

Young Havey of Hebron held Bates down to 
something like two hits for nine innings in the game 
at Lewiston last week. Not bad for a "prep" school 
man. 

The members of the Vermont debating team 
which tried conclusions with Bates last evening are 
spending the day in Brunswick as the guests of 
Professor Woodruff. 

The members of the band appeared this week in 
attractive hats. It is understood that complete uni- 
forms will be obtained by Memorial Day when this 
college organization will participate in the exercises 
at Bath. 



There were a number of visitors at chapel, Sun- 
day. The exercises were conducted by President 
Hyde and dealt particularly with his recent trip 
through the Southern States. 

The Massachusetts trip by the U. of M. base-ball 
team did not seem to be very satisfactory. They 
lost to Andover, Brown and Tufts and had several 
games postponed on account of rain. 

The Library Club held their semi-monthly meet- 
ing at Professor Little's .house last Saturday even- 
ing. An excellent paper on the "History of the 
College Library" was read by Rowe, '06. 

Prof. Woodruff presided at the Brunswick High 
School debate held last Saturday evening in the 
Assembly Hall of the High School Building and 
Professor Mitchell was one .of the judges. 

The library has been increased by the generosity 
of Mrs. Lydia H. Dwinel of Bangor, who has pre- 
sented a portfolio containing fifty-two large engrav- 
ings of Raphael's frescoes in the Vatican at Rome. 

The opera "Bell Rock" drew a considerable 
crowd of college fellows to the town hall last Tues- 
day and Wednesday night. Ryan, '07, Archibald, 
'04, R. Johnson, '06, and Herms, '04. took leading 
parts, besides many other students were in the 
chorus. 



COLBY JUNIOR "PROM." 

A most cordial invitation is extended to all 
Bowdoin men who attend the Intercollegiate Track 
Meet, to attend the Junior Prom., given by the 
Class of 1905 at the Armory on the evening of May 
sixteenth at nine o'clock.

TRIALS IN SOPHOMORE PRIZE SPEAKING. 

The first trial in the Sophomore Prize Speaking 
was held April 26, in Memorial Hall. Those who 
spoke at this trial were Stevens, Bavis, Porter, 
Parcher, P, R. Andrews, Childs, Bartlett, Boody 
and Pope. Those who spoke last Tuesday, May 3, 
were Clark. Fox. Stetson, Copeland, C. Shaw, 
Rowe, Woodruff. Perry. 

From these speakers twelve will be chosen by 
the class with the approval of the Faculty to com- 
pete for the prize. The date of the final contest has 
not been fixed. 



ART BUILDING NOTES. 

The Orient wishes to correct a mistake made in 
its Art Building Notes some time since. The donor 
of the Paul Jones picture was not Charles M. Bar- 
ker as reported, but Charles M. Baker. 

A series of landscape photographs of the Yosem- 
ite Valley and California landscapes are on exhibi- 
tion for a limited time only. 

Professor Hutchins has completed some more in 
the series of photographs of the portrait paintings in 
Memorial Hall. The photographs of the Haw- 
thorne and Longfellow pictures are especially good.

MEDICAL SCHOOL. 

Ernest V. Call, a Senior in the Medical Depart- 
ment, announces his engagement to Miss Mabel B. 
Furbush of Lewiston. Both parties are graduates of 
Bates. 

The Alpha Kappa Kappa fraternity of the Medi- 
cal School, will dine at the Inn in the near future, 
at which time a paper on the thyroid gland will be 
read by Dr. Giddings of Gardiner, and an address 
given on the same subject by Dr. Fuller of Bath. 

Dr. King did not meet his classes on Thursday 
of last week, being called to Wiscasset to perform 
an operation. 

The dissecting of bodies by the second year stu- 
dents began Wednesday. 

Dr. Gerrish has distributed among the medical 
students a complete set of bones. Previously the 
students had been obliged to secure their own sup- 
ply, which was a source of expense and inconven- 
ience.

One of the things the stu- 
Prompt Payment dents should do at this 
of Subscriptions, season is to pay their ath- 
letic subscriptions to the 
different managers. There are a large num- 
ber of fellows in college who keep postponing 
these payments and think there is no harm in 
so doing. Now, the fact is, that the managers 
have a pretty hard proposition before them, 
even when the payments are promptly and 
cheerfully paid. It is no money-making 
scheme for them and it takes a large amount 
of figuring on their part to make the accounts 
balance. They are not working for personal 
interests in any way, but for the college col- 
lectively and individually. IT TAKES 
GOOD MONEY TO RUN THESE 
TEAMS, NOT PROMISES. Most of us 
can, by denying ourselves a few present pleas- 
ures, pay these bills promptly. Let's try it for 



a change. Better postpone those trips to the 
"Empire" or to the "Inn" and pay up your 
subscriptions. It will make the managers 
smile and you will feel better for it. 



Bowdoin's hopes in Ten- 
Lack of Interest nis ' Championships are 
Shown in Tennis, growing fainter every 
day. From the present 
outlook we shall have no team at all unless 
the college responds better to Captain Dana's 
call for candidates. It is really a deplorable 
thing that so few men have signified their 
intention of entering this branch of our ath- 
letics. Only a meagre number apparently 
have any interest at all in our tennis pros- 
pects, although by the large squads out for 
base-ball and track the college shows that it 
is not lacking in athletic interest. That there 
are good tennis players in college, there can 
be no doubt, after the showing many men 
have made in the past. Three positions on 
the team must be filled by new men. Every 
fellow who can play tennis at all should try 
for one of these positions. If he doesn't win 
the place, he can at least make, some one work 
for it. Let's get together, fellows, and 
develop a winning tennis team. 



The Track Meet. 



If we consider the fact 



that the training of the 
men in the track and field events has been 
seriously hindered by the rainy and cold 
weather, the records at the annual college 
meet last Monday were very creditable. In 
every event Bowdoin seems to have men who 
may be depended upon to win points in the 
State competition one week from Saturday. 
Although we have been taking a certain 
amount of pride in the number of men who 
have been training, the fact that in some 
events only two or three were entered was 
rather discouraging. This was especially 
noticeable in the high hurdles and the jumps. 
It is, of course, too early to begin to train 



BOWDOIN ORIENT.

new men this year for these events, but there 
is a lesson for us to learn here for the future. 
Of all the men there are in college there ought 
to be more who would train for these events 
which require more practice in form, but 
offer no less attractive field for success to 
aspiring athletes. The most encouraging 
feature of the meet was the work of the men 
who have come out this year for the first 
time, but with these and the good work of the 
old winners, we must remember that many of 
the records were very slow and much hard 
work must be done before May 14.

appear at all. yet possessing qualities which, 
under favorable conditions, would develop 
them into first-class players. Such a league 
would arouse a lively interest in college and 
once started would become a permanent feat- 
ure in athletic life. The Orient suggests 
that a committee be selected from the Senior 
Class and a schedule of games be arranged in 
such a way that it will be possible to play the 
entire series before Ivy Day. 



Proposed Change 
in Publication 
of the Bugle. 



Each year the medical stu- 
dents are coming into 
closer touch with the 
academical students of the 
college. It is pleasing to observe the close 
connection now existing between the two 
departments and we hope for its further 
development. Of all the schemes that have 
been suggested by different ones and at dif- 
ferent times for drawing these students into 
our relationship the best is that which pro- 
poses to have the Junior Medical Class unite 
with the academic Juniors in the publication 
of the college annual, the Bugle. 



A joint publication by these two classes 
would mean a great deal to both departments 
of the college. The "Medics" would then 
feel that they had a share in the college affairs 
as much as we, a larger and better volume 
would be obtainable and the value of the work 
ereatlv increased. 



Bowdoin students should 
Care highly prize the liberty 

of the Campus, that is given them in 
regard to the use of the 
college buildings and grounds. But as in 
every such case this very freedom is apt to 
breed carelessness. As spring approaches we 
begin to point with more than usual pride to 
the beauty of our campus and are glad that 
no frequent signs appear to "keep off the 
grass." If we truly appreciate the advantage 
of not having these obnoxious warnings about 
the campus we will be all the more careful to 
keep to the paths at this season of the year 
when the lawns are soft and the grass roots 
easily trampled out. 



,, .. . ™ . One thing we should not 

Sectional Clubs. & 

forget during the rush of 
the spring term. That is to keep up the good 
work so well begun the past winter in the sec- 
tional clubs. It is an easy matter to overlook 
or neglect these outside things at this season 
which if permitted to affect our sectional 
clubs, will seriously cripple the work which 
they are intended to do. From now until next 
fall is when they can do their best work — a 
fact which should not be lost sight of in the 
rush of other things. We have a good thing 
in these clubs. Let us not neglect them. 



Emmett King, a member of the Senior Class 
at Harvard Law School and a graduate of Indiana 
University, where he played three years at different 
times the positions of guard, tackle and center, has 
been engaged to coach the University of Maine 
foot-ball eleven next season.

SPRING ATHLETIC MEET. 

The annual spring athletic meet was held on 
Whittier Field, Monday afternoon. The day was 
perfect and the track considering the heavy rains 
which fell last week, was in good condition. 
Although no particularly brilliant records were 
made, the men showed up very well especially at 
this time of the year. The spectators were com- 
posed chiefly of officials and the band. Coach

CHANGES IN FOOT-BALL RULES. 

The Intercollegiate Foot-Ball Rules Association, 
at a recent meeting in Philadelphia, made the fol- 
lowing changes in the present intercollegiate code : 

A goal from field or from placement will count 
only four instead of five points. At least six men 
must be on the line of scrimmage in all plays, 



instead of seven men between the two 25-yard lines, 
and five between the 25 and goal lines. If only six 
are on the line, one of the backfield must be outside 
the end linesman. Under these conditions, which 
apply to the whole field of play, the quarterback 
may run with the ball provided he goes 5 yards out- 
side of center in advancing the ball. This makes 
checkerboard markings necessary over the entire 
field. 

The linesman's duties are now more clearly 
defined : he will watch officially over the measure- 
ments of distance, off-side play by ends, and 
unnecessary rough treatment of punters. The pen- 
alties are grouped into two classes, and only two 
distance penalties are provided for: 5 yards and 15 
yards. After a fair catch has been made, time is to 
be taken out until the ball is again put in play. In 
a kick-out after a safety or touchback, if the ball 
goes out of bounds before striking a player, it must 
be kicked out again ; if this occurs twice in succes- 
sion, it shall be given to the opponents as out of 
bounds on the 35-yard line. 

A team no longer has the privilege of retaining 
the ball by taking it back 20 yards. 



BASE-BALL. 

Bowdoin played five and one-half innings, 
Wednesday afternoon of last week, of what was 
undoubtedly the most unsatisfactory game of ball 
that has been played here in a long time. A driz- 
zling rain fell during the greater part of the game, 
and this coupled with the poor playing consequent 
of the wet grounds and the fact that Exeter insisted 
on leaving before the game was finished, made the 
contest decidedly unsatisfactory. As no arrange- 
ments had been made to have the game stopped at 
this time and as Exeter refused to play longer, the 
umpire declared the game forfeited to Bowdoin. 
The score was 13 to 7 in favor of Exeter when play- 
ing ceased.

Dartmouth 6, Bowdoin o. 

Bowdoin met defeat at the bands of Dartmouth 
Saturday afternoon, on the latter's grounds, by the 
sore of 6 — o. Bowdoin lacked entirely the snap and 
aggressiveness which should characterize her play- 
ing at this season of the year. Oakes pitched a good 
game, but was poorly supported, six errors being 
credited to the team, most of them costly. Glaze 
pitched creditably for Dartmouth and the team 
backed up in good shape. Bowdoin was extremely 
weak at the bat ; three times there were men on 
second and third and then could not tally. Cox led 
the team in batting, securing three of the four hits 
credited to Bowdoin. The one unpleasant feature 
of the game was the fact that it had to be played on 
the campus, owing to the poor condition of the oval. 

White, the first man up for Bowdoin, struck out. 
Stone drove the ball out to right field which was 
gathered in by remarkably fast work by Main. 
Clarke received a free pass to first but was put out 
in trying to reach third on Cox's single. McCabe, 
the first man up for Dartmouth, received a base on 
balls and was sacrificed to second by Hobbs. 
Witham fielded to Hodgson who threw to Gould 
catching McCabe between the bases. O'Brien was 
put out at first thus retiring the side. In the second 
Wiggin singled and Gould popped up an infield fly 
to Hobbs. Kinsman received a base on balls; Hodg- 
son struck out and Oakes flied out to Orcutt. For 
Dartmouth, Main knocked an easy grounder to 
Oakes who threw wide to first; Orcutt struck out. 
Blatherick reached first on an error by White; Glaze 
received a free pass — and McCabe went out from 
White to Wiggin, thus retiring the side. In the 
third Bowdoin went out in order. White struck 
out. Stone sent up an infield fly to Glaze and Clarke 
flied out to Main. For Dartmouth, Hobbs received 
a base on balls, and stole second. Witham received 
a gift to first ; O'Brien knocked to Oakes who threw 
Hobbs out at third. Main duplicated O'Brien's 
feat and Oakes threw Witham out at second. 
Orcutt sent the ball to right field, scoring O'Brien 
and Blatherick was out from Golild to Wiggin. 
Score, 1 — 0. 

Cox went out from Orcutt to Blatherick ; Wig- 
gin flied out to Hobbs. Gould sent the ball into cen- 
ter field, but Witham let it slip through his hands ; 
in trying to steal second, however, he was put out. 
Witham singled to center field; O'Brien flied out to 
Clarke and Main flied out to Hodgson. Orcutt 
hit to left field for three bases, scoring Witham. 
Blatherick struck out. Score, 2 — o. 

In the sixth. Stone received a base on balls, and 
was sacrificed to second by Clarke. Cox hit 
for two bases but by fast fielding Stone 
was held at third. Wiggin and Gould fanned the air, 
thus retiring the side. Dartmouth went out in 
■order; Reeves struck out. Glaze flied out to Kins- 
man and McCabe struck out. 

In the seventh Bowdoin went out in order ; Kins- 
man flied out to Witham, Hodgson struck out and 
Oakes went out to Blatherick. For Dartmouth, 



Hobbs made first on an error by Hodgson and was 
sacrificed to second by Witham. O'Brien singled 
and stole second. Main sent out a three-bagger in 
deep center, scoring Hobbs and O'Brien, but by 
fast fielding was put out at the home plate. Orcutt 
flied out to Clarke. Sore, 4 — 0. 

In the eighth Bowdoin went out in order ; White 
from Orcutt to Blatherick. Stone flied out to 
Reeves and Clarke from second to first. Blatherick 
hit a fair ball in front of the plate and was tagged 
out by Stone. Reeves and Glaze both singled and 
scored on McCabe's single to center. Hobbs flied 
out to Cox and Witham to Clarke. In the ninth 
Bowdoin came up for her last time. Cox made his 
third hit of the game. Wiggin flied out to Blather- 
ick; Gould struck out and Kinsman went out at first 
thus ending the game. Score, 6 — 0.

HORATIO GATES HERRICK. 

Horatio Gates Herrick of the Class of '44, died 
at his home in Lawrence, Mass., April 18, 1904. 
Mr. Herrick was born in Alfred, Me., October 28, 
1824. After graduating he studied and practiced 
law and later was for some twenty-five or thirty 
years, Sheriff of Essex County, Massachusetts. He 
was a most companionable man, looking on the 
bright side of life, cherishing the friendships and 
memories of college days, and making the world 
brighter for all with whom he had to do. He 
exemplified the attractive and winning spirit of the 
religion he professed. For the last thirty years or 
more he has been secretary of his college class and 
has done much to maintain the old-time fellowship 
through frequent class meetings and diligent cor- 
respondence. His death leaves seven survivors of 
the forty-nine who graduated sixty years ago. 



MAJOR STEPHEN M. EATON. 

At New Orleans, April 18, 1904, occurred the 
death of Major Stephen Melville Eaton, honorary 
graduate of Bowdoin in the Class of 1892. Major 
Eaton was a Maine man, being born in Portland, 
October 7, 1893. At the outbreak of the Civil War 
he enlisted in the Twelfth Maine Volunteers, in 
1861, and served gallantly throughout the war, 
receiving the rank of Brevet Lieutenant Colonel 
in 1865. After the close of the war he went South 
and settled in New Orleans, where he lived until the 
time of his death. He held the position of U. S. 
Postmaster of that city for several years. A brave, 
upright man, he was an honor to the college whose 
adopted son he was. 



The Theta Chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon 
mourns the death of Hon. Joseph A. Locke of the 
Class of 1865. 

A man of highest principles, he won the regard 
of all with whom his public life as well as his per- 
sonal profession brought him in contact. In college 
life and in after years he worked well and faith- 
fully, winning for himself the success due to ster- 
ling worth. 

The Theta Chapter deeply regrets the loss of 
such a brother and extends its heart-felt sympathy 
to his bereaved family and friends.

For the Cliapter. 



It is with the deepest regret that the Kappa 
Chapter of Psi Upsilon announces the death of 
Capt. Horatio Gates Herrick of the Class of '44. 
By his death the chapter loses one of its most loyal 
brothers and the college a faithful supporter. 

Capt. Herrick was a veteran of the Civil War 
during which he served for four years with a record 
of the greatest honor and ability. He was a man 
of unimpeachable worth and integrity, combining 
as he did a stern sense of duty with all the most 
lovable qualities of a perfect gentleman. His death 
brings sorrow to a host of friends and his memory 
will long be kept before the chapter by the innu- 
merable good deeds of a long lifetime of Christian 
manhood.

Over 60 years ago Pond's Extract— the 
old family doctor— came into existence. 
During all these years it has been 
the leading remedy in school, college 
and home, for the relief of all the 
pains, aches and accidents of so fre- 
quent occurrence. A bottle should be 
in the room of every student— handy 
for quick use— and applied before 
pain drives study from the brain. Re- 
lieves earache, toothache, rheuma- 
tism ; cures cuts, bruises, burns ; stops 
bleeding from cuts and wounds, and 
soothes all pain. A wonderfully effi- 
cacious remedy— pure and strong. 
Soothes and freshens 
the face after shaving.

BASE = BALL. 



Bowdoin 3, Maine o. 

Bowdoin defeated Maine at Orono, Wednesday, 
May 4, in one of the most excitingly played games 
seen in this State for a number of years. The score 
was 3 to o. The game was a protracted pitchers' 
battle. Cox was the Bowdoin twirler and Frost 
occupied the box for Maine. Both pitched fine ball, 
but Cox was by far the most effective. He held the 
hits down to two, gave only one base on balls and 
struck out seven men. He was in excellent condi- 
tion and allowed only twenty-nine men to face him. 
Frost pitched a very creditable game, giving no free 
passes, and striking out eight men, but he was hit 
much more freely than Cox. Four different times, 
with men on bases, Frost proved his worth, by retir- 
ing the side. 

The feature of the game was the batting and 
fielding of Piper. In the fourth inning he batted 
in two runs by a well placed single over second and 
the sixth scored the third run. Hodgson fielded his 
position with credit. For Maine Mitchell led in 
batting securing the only hits made off Cox and Lar- 
rabee excelled in fielding. 

The game opened with Bowdoin at the bat. 
White, the first man up, went out from Frost to Col- 
lins. Stone flied out to first. Clarke made a beau- 
tiful two-bagger; and Cox went out from Larrabee 
to Collins, thus retiring the side. For Maine 
Mitchell after two strikes had been called on line, 
cracked out a single to left field. Collins popped 
up a little fly to Cox who threw to first, making a 
double play. Violette went out from Cox to Wig- 
gin. 

In the second, Wiggin was hit by a pitched ball. 
Gould struck out and Kinsman was hit by a pitched 
ball. With two men on bases and only one out, 
Piper and Hodgson were not equal to the occasion, 
the former flying out to Burns and the latter fanned 
the air three times. For Maine the side was retired 
in one, two, three order. The third was a repeti- 
tion of the prior innings, neither side was able to 
score. 

In the fourth, Wiggin singled. Gould went out 
to Larrabee. Kinsman singled to right field, 
advanced Wiggin to third, and stole second. Piper 
placed a beautiful single over second, scoring Wig- 
gin and Kinsman. Hodgson went out to Collins 
and White on Larrabee's assist. Maine went out 
in succession. Score, 2 — o. 

In the fifth Bowdoin had two men on bases, but 
by effective work on the part of Frost, Wiggin and 
Gould were retired on strikes. Maine went out in 
order. 

In the sixth. Kinsman, the first man up, struck 
out, Piper singled to right field and stole second. 
Violette in attempting to catch Piper at second, 
threw wide of the base and Piper scored. Hodgson 
and White went out in order, the former to left field 



and the latter on Larrabee's assist. For Maine 
McDonald received a free pass to first, but the next 
three men went out in order. Score, 3 — o. No 
further scoring was done during the remainder of 
the game, the final score being 3 to o. 
The score :

Maine 5, Bowdoin 4. 

Bowdoin lost its game with Maine on the Whit- 
tier Field last Saturday, by the score of 5 to 4. It 
was an excellent game, both teams playing good 
ball. Bowdoin played winning ball with the excep- 
tion of the second inning, when a few hits and 
costly errors gave Maine a lead which Bowdoin was 
unable to overcome. There was a large crowd in 
attendance and the game was interesting throughout. 

The game opened with Mitchell at the bat for 
Maine. He sent a grounder to Gould, but was safe 
on an error. Collins came up next and was safe 
in an excusable error by Wiggin, Mitchell scoring 
while the ball was being fielded. Violette fanned 
out, Larrabee was out on a hit to Cox, and Hosmer 
went out, White to Wiggin.

BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



In Bowdoin's half, White got his hase by being 
hit by a pitched ball and Stone sacrificed, Clarke fol- 
lowing with a double, scoring White. Cox singled, 
sending Clarke to third. Clarke scored on a sacri- 
fice by Wiggin. Gould struck out. 

In the second Maine won the game by securing 
four runs. Burns struck out. McDonald got a 
base on balls. Bird got first on an error by Gould, 
McDonald going to third. Frost got a hit, scoring 
McDonald, and Mitchell followed with another, fill- 
ing the bases. Violette was out on a fly to Piper. 
The latter unfortunately threw to second instead of 
the plate, and two men came in. This ended the 
scoring for Maine during the game. It was enough, 
however, to win out. 

Bowdoin got two more scores in the seventh and 
it looked as though we would get more. Piper 
reached first on an error by Burns. Hodgson then 
got a hit, sending Piper to second. White flied out 
and Stone struck out. Clarke then drove out his 
second two-bagger, scoring Piper and Hodgson. 
Cox was out, Frost to Collins. 

There was no more scoring on either side. Bow- 
doin lost the game through errors, but no ordinary 
team can play errorless ball and the misfortune was 
that they proved so costly.

Alpha Delta Phi, ii; Psi Upsilon, 10. 

In a close, ten-inning game on the Delta, 
Wednesday afternoon, April 27, the A. D.'s won the 
first of the proposed series of inter-fraternity games. 
It was a pitcher's battle throughout, Childs twirling 
for the A. D.'s and Roberts for Psi Upsilon. Two 
two-baggers by Tucker and Speake won the victory 
for Alpha Delta Phi in the tenth. Sexton in left 
field carried off the honors for the A. D.'s with 
four put-outs, one assist and a three-base hit, while 
for the Psi U.'s, Donnell's work at short-stop, and 
Powers' agility on third are not to be lightly passed 
over. 



Kent's Hill 10, Bowdoin 2d 7. 

Saturday, May 2, the Bowdoin Second Nine was 
defeated in a close game at Kent's Hill, by a score 
of 10 to 7. The fielding of both teams was a little 
ragged and the base throwing uncertain. The con- 
dition of the grounds was undoubtedly responsible 
for a great many of the errors, especially on the 
part of the visiting nine, there being a fall of several 
feet from third base to first. Kent's Hill won the 
game by bunching their hits in the sixth, when they 
ran in six scores, making the score seven to five 
and gaining a lead which could not be cut down.

PSI UPSILON RECEIVES. 

One of the prettiest and most enjoyable social 
events of the present season was the fifteenth annual 
reception and dance which was given by the mem- 
bers of the Psi Upsilon fraternity last Friday even- 
ing. The beautiful chapter house on Maine Street 
was more than usually attractive, decorated with 
palms and cut flowers. A tea was given from 3.30 
to 5.30 in the afternoon when Mrs. W. K. Oakes 
of Auburn, and Mrs. H. T. Baxter of Brunswick, 
received. During the evening dancing was enjoyed, 
music being furnished by Greenleaf's Orchestra. 
Morton served dainty refreshments. The commit 
tee who had charge of the affair was Oakes, '04,

Track Meet. 



To-morrow the Maine 
Intercollegiate Meet oc- 
curs at Waterville. There Bowdoin will con- 
test once more for the championship, and con- 
test successfully we hope. The team has 
trained hard and faithfully all the spring and 
has been brought as near to the point of per- 
fection as possible. It is composed largely of 
new men, but men whom we feel we can trust 
to uphold the honor of the college at the meet. 
But it is not the team alone which must go to 
Waterville and win this last in a series of ten 
meets for Bowdoin. Every man connected 
with the college in any way, who can possibly 
do so, should make a special effort to lay all 
else aside and help the prestige of the college 
by accompanying the team to Waterville and 
help our straining runners with welcome 
cheers. 



The Orient publishes in 
Communication , . 

„ . another column a commu- 

Concerning 

Hawthorne Statue. nicatio » from Professor 
Johnson concerning the 
proposed Hawthorne statue, which deserves 
the attention of the entire student body. The 
communication and the accompanying letter 
sets forth very clearly the plans for raising 
the money for this tribute to the memory of 
Hawthorne. The alumni are working enthu- 
siastically to make the erection of the statue a 
success and are leaving no stone unturned to 
bring about this most desirable result. It is 
felt, however, by those having the work 
in charge that there should be a 
response from the undergraduate body — that 
the statue should be something more than a 
mere gift to the college from the alumni — 
that it should be a representation of the love 
and pride that the undergraduates, as well as 
the graduate body, feel in the man who in 
several respects surpasses any literary light 
America has yet produced. The Orient 
believes that the student body, acting with the 
alumni, should take immediate action in this 
matter. The subscribing to such a fund is 
something more than a duty — 'A is a privilege. 
Bowdoin has in Hawthorne's memory a herit- 
age such as no other American college can 
boast, and it is a privilege for us as students 
at Bowdoin in this centennial year, to con- 
tribute what we can afford for the erection of 
this statue. The Orient suggests that some 
definite action be taken AT ONCE, in order 
that effective work may be done before Com- 
mencement. 



Now that we are fully 
Hubbard installed in the new Hub- 

Grand Stand. bard Grand Stand the 

enormous value of the 
building becomes more and more apparent; 
particularly underneath the stand where the 
baths are located is this true. It is a pleasure 
to be able to use the quarters and fortunate 
indeed are we in having: such advantages. 



BOWDOIN ORIENT.

Commodious lockers, warm rooms, sanitary 
arrangements, showers, mirrors, bowls and 
lavatories furnish every convenience that can 
be desired. Every detail of the work reflects 
the wisdom and generosity of the donor. We 
feel justly pre ad of this, our latest building, 
and hope that it will ever prove a stimulus to 
our teams. 



Maine Game. 



Bowdoin lost the game 
with Maine last Saturday 
— a thing for which every man in college feels 
sorry. It is never pleasing to lose a game of 
any kind on our own field, especially to one 
of the other Maine colleges. Yet there is no 
reason for becoming discouraged over the 
result of the contest. With the uncer- 
tainties that always enter into a game of base- 
ball no team can ever be assured of winning 
all its games — whether it be stronger than its 
opponents or not. We have won two of the 
three games of the Maine college series, and 
there is yet time for us to win out in the race. 
We have a strong team — a team that can set 
a championship pace when it plays the game 
it is capable of. Good practice and good 
courage is all that is needed to bring us out 
all right. 



Death of a 
Prominent 
Graduate. 



Once more death has 
entered the ranks of our 
alumni and has taken 
away one of Bowdoin's 
truest friends, Hon. Josiah Crosby of Dexter. 
Formerly the oldest living graduate, a mem- 
ber of the Board of Overseers, a constant and 
earnest supporter of Bowdoin — his name and 
deeds will long be remembered by all the sons 
of the college. 



College Sing. 



The College Band gave a 
successful concert on the 
steps of the Art Building last Wednesday 
evening before a large gathering of the stu- 
dents. The pleasure and social advantages 
which a function of this kind brings cannot 



be overestimated. The Band was at its best 
and played the old college airs and many of 
the local popular songs. The singers joined 
in, and contributed greatly to the enjoyment 
of the occasion. The work of the Band is 
appreciated and the Orient extends well 
deserved praise to all the members who are 
doing so much to help along the games and 
other functions of the college. One thing to 
be criticised in the last concert was, that very 
few of the students are familiar with some of 
our latest and best college songs. "We'll 
Sing to Old Bowdoin," and "Here's to Old 
Bowdoin," are splendid productions and 
should be memorized for such occasions. 



Not to state whether in 
A Fair the past the organization 

Proposition. which represents the 

Christian interests among 
Bowdoin students has been as efficient and 
virile as it should have been, the fact that its 
fundamental purpose is so high demands that 
the organization should be recognized and 
supported by every fair-minded college man. 
No one will deny that its standard of honest 
scholarship, clean thought, and clean life is 
one that does appeal to us. The new impetus 
that has been given to the local association 
this term and the attractive plans that are 
being made for next year prove that this is so. 
But there is clanger that the work may be hin- 
dered through thoughtlessness. For a long 
time Thursday evening has been recognized 
as the regular time for a weekly meeting. 
Too often in the past other events, both of 
student and Faculty management, have taken 
place on this evening and of course hinder 
many from attending the association meeting 
which they otherwise would do. Does the 
Young Men's Christian Association do a fair 
thing in asking that this evening be kept free 
from fraternity meetings, college exercises, 
the out-door sings and in fact anything that 
begins before eight o'clock when the meeting 
is over ?

BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



The Bell 
for Chapel. 



One custom, which for- 
merly was an established 
practice at Bowdoin, the 
Orient is sorry to see has been discontinued, 
that of ringing the so-called "alarms" on the 
chapel bell. Until very recently, in the midst 
of the tolling for prayers, a number of short, 
quick strokes would always be rung, a few 
about the middle and then again near the end. 
Thus one could always tell how much time was 
left and whether he needed to hurry or not. 
This is a small thing, but very convenient, and 
the Orient would be glad to see it adopted 
again. 



College Journalism. 



As representing college 



journalism, the Orient 
was very glad to notice the meeting 
of the Maine Amateur Press Association, com- 
posed of the high school papers in the State, 
held last week. School journalism is a part 
of school life as much as school athletics, and 
in the same way that school athletics train and 
develop material and interest for college ath- 
letics, so does school journalism for college 
journalism — and anything along this line the 
Orient is pleased to take note of and com- 
mend. 

PRESIDENT HYDE'S LECTURE ON 

THE RACE PROBLEM IN THE 

SOUTH. 

President Hyde's lecture on the Race 
Problem of the South was delivered before a 
large audience in the Congregational Church 
last Sunday. President Hyde's words were 
the result of his recent trip with the Ogden 
Party to the Southern States, where he vis- 
ited all the leading educational institutions. 
His words were filled with actual meaning 
and signified much more than could be con- 
veyed by mere book study. 

After a brief summary of the results of 
the war he related how the negro has . been 
disfranchised and his rights taken away from 
him. The condition of the race is extremely 
dark, they are subjected to much violence and 
injury. In Mississippi the colored man fears 
that he is not wanted with the whites. In 



many places conditions as bad as those of 
slavery times now exist. The key to the situ- 
ation, President Hyde stated, is an industrial 
education for the great majority and an 
academic and college education for those who 
intend to instruct the rest of their class. Many 
of the schools of the South now contain 
practical shops of tailoring and harness mak- 
ing, and housekeeping is also taught. 

A great work has been accomplished by 
two northern women who have devoted the 
past ten years to developing an extremely 
uncivilized portion of Alabama. As a result 
of their labors many have bought larger 
homes and have gone to cultivating their 
farms. 

The colleges of the South, said President 
Hyde, are much lower in rank than the north- 
ern colleges. This movement of the Educa- 
tional Board, of which President Hyde is a 
member, is examining ever}' fitting school 
and college in the country with a view to find- 
ing out its worth and merit. 

During the past few years the Southern 
States have greatly increased the appropria- 
tions for public schools. The great question 
which faces the people, however, is segrega- 
tion, which is firmly and intensely rooted in 
the minds of every Southerner, both black and 
white. The idea that the black man shall 
dwell apart is so deeply fixed in the minds of 
the South that nothing but revolution could 
blot it out. 

In conclusion President Hyde said that 
liquor should be kept out and that the illicit 
intercourse between the sexes cease and an 
industrial education given to the greater 
part of the people, if anything like improve- 
ment were to be made among the class. 



TRACK MEET. 

To-morrow we meet the other Maine col- 
leges in a struggle for the track championship 
of 1904. Coach Lathrop by hard and 
efficient work has turned out what we believe 
to be the winning team. The veterans of last 
year's champions have improved and much 
new material has shown up remarkably well, 
giving us bright prospects for next year also. 
The entries for the meet are as follows : 

100 Yards Dash — Bates, Jenks, Weld, Doherty, 
Kinsman, Clarke. 

220 Yards Dash — Bates, Weld, Parcher, Doherty, 
Henderson, Clarke.

COLLEGE SING. 

A college sing was held on the steps of 
the Walker Art Building, last Thursday, and 
it proved to be a most enjoyable occasion in 
every way, nearly every fellow in college 
being present. A large number of college 
and popular songs were sung in which the 
band joined. The only regrettable feature 
was the fact that only a few of the fellows 
knew the new Bowdoin songs, and conse- 
quently "Bowdoin Beata" and "Phi Chi" were 
the only Bowdoin songs in which all could 
take part. The band was a great help, and 
we hope to see more of these sings during the 
remainder of the term. 



Communication. 



To the Editor of the Orient: 

The attention of the undergraduates has 
not yet been duly called to the project with 
which the following letter deals, although it 
may be remembered that the idea when men- 
tioned at the rally last March was received 
with much interest. It is needless to point 
out the many reasons why each member of 
the college should be proud to contribute his 
share to the funds for the erection on the cam- 
pus here of a statue of the youthful Haw- 
thorne ; it will be enough to say that the com- 
mittee in charge value very highly the support 
of the undergraduates. Certainly the erection 
on the campus of such a statue is desired by 



the students living here as a visible representa- 
tion of the interest of the whole college in 
her most distinguished literary son. 

Henry Johnson. 

Following is the letter sent out by the 
Bowdoin Club of Boston : 

It is proposed to erect a statue of Nathaniel 
Hawthorne upon the campus of Bowdoin College, at 
Brunswick, Me. 

Hawthorne was born at Salem on July 4, 1804, 
and was graduated at Bowdoin College in the Class 
of 1S25. The college is to celebrate the centenary 
of his birth at the next commencement, in June. It 
is hoped that by that time the full amount needed 
to provide a memorial worthy of the man will have 
been pledged. The project originates with the Bow- 
doin Club of Boston, which has taken up the enter- 
prise with great enthusiasm, and has appointed a 
committee to promote it, of which Professor Alfred 
E. Burton of the Massachusetts Institute of Tech- 
nology is chairman. Although, as a matter of col- 
lege pride, it appeals most strongly to the sons of 
Bowdoin. yet it is felt that interest in the movement 
should be shared by every lover of good literature 
in the land, and should have his cordial assistance. 
Hawthorne stands without a rival at the head of 
American writers of romance; as a master of a pure 
English style he has been surpassed by no writer of 
American birth. 

It is highly appropriate that the permanent mon- 
ument to his memory should be placed on the 
grounds of the institution that nurtured him. The 
Bowdoin quadrangle has lately been completed by 
the erection of a noble library building — the stately 
Hubbard Hall. Literature, art, science and religion 
are now represented by four structures which for 
architectural beauty are unequalled on the grounds 
of any New England college. 

It is proposed to place the statue of Hawthorne 
beside the approach to Hubbard Hall. Should this 
enterprise be successful, there will undoubtedly be a 
proposition three years hence to mark the centenary 
of the birth of Hawthorne's classmate, Henry Wads- 
worth Longfellow, by erecting on the other side of 
the walk a statue of our great American poet. Both 
of these famous sons of Bowdoin would be repre- 
sented, not as they appeared in middle life or in old 
age. but as they may be supposed to have looked in 
early manhood. 

Several prominent sculptors have been consulted 
on the subject of a Hawthorne statue. They have all 
manifested a lively interest in the matter. It is cer- 
tain that any sculptor who may receive the commis- 
sion will devote to it his best thought and his high- 
est skill. The committee having the matter in charge 
is unanimous in the opinion that anything less than 
the best attainable in art would be worse than no 
memorial at all. It is roughly estimated that a sum 
not less than fifteen thousand dollars will be 
required for the statue alone. If the effort to secure 
the full amount needed should fail, all subscriptions 
will be canceled. The appeal for funds to provide 
the statue is made to all who honor the name and 
the fame of Nathaniel Hawthorne. 

Subscriptions payable when the full amount has 
been pledged — which will be duly acknowledged —

Clarence Burleigh, '89, of Augusta, was one of

The Theta Delta Chi fraternity were having the

Nearly a hundred students heard President Hyde 
Sunday evening in his talk on the Race Problem in 
the South. 

Monday evening Professor Robinson delivered a

Professor Mitchell will give an address at the 
commencement exercises of Bridge Academy, Dres- 
den, on June 16. 

Judge Peters, whose death was noted in the 
Orient a few weeks ago, had written 598 opinions, 
and only one was ever rejected by the court en banc. 

Professor Lee delivered an address entitled, 
"Some Unfamiliar Aspects of Nature," at Augusta 
last week before the members and guests of the 
Abnaki Club of that city. 

A picture of Professor McCrea, with a sketch of 
his life, appears in the last issue of the Brunswick 
Record, in connection with this paper's series of 
sketches of the Bowdoin Faculty. 

A singular fact in connection with the Maine 
game occurs in that, a year ago, May 9, 1903, Bow- 
doin beat Maine 5 to 4 on her own grounds and 
this year she turns the tables on us and reverses the 
score. 

Adjourns will be granted in allstudiesto-morrow. 
This action was taken not because of the Inter- 
collegiate Meet, as would be at first supposed, but 
because of the English and Modern Language Con- 
ference which is being held in Brunswick. 

Bates defeated the University of Vermont in 
debate last week. The question at debate was : 
Resolved, That it will be to the advantage of Great 
Britain to make a substantial departure from her 
policy of free trade in respect to imports. 



The Glee Club gave a concert in Bath, Wednes- 
day evening, in Grange Hall. Nearly the same pro- 
gram was used as formerly and the clubs were cor- 
dially received. 

Notice has been given that a full-page portrait of 
President Hyde will appear in the next issue of the 
Book Lovers' Magazine in connection with those of 
seven other well-known college presidents of Amer- 
ica. This is a deserved tribute to President Hyde 
and the magazine will doubtless have a large sale 
here. 

The shelves of the library have been increased by 
the following volumes : 

New International Encyclopaedia. 
Seven Volumes of Congressional Reports. 
"Municipal Problems" by J. F. Goodnow. 
Travels in Europe and America, by C. E. Bolton. 



'68 PRIZE SPEAKING. 

The annual competition for the prize of forty 
dollars offered by the Class of 1868 for the best 
written and spoken oration by a member of the 
Senior Class was held in Memorial Hall, Tuesday 
evening. A large attendance testified that the 
speaking was of a very high order and the speakers 
received enthusiastic applause. The judges were as 
follows : Professor A. W. Anthony of Cobb Divinity 
School ; Frank L. Staples, Esq., of Bath, and John 
A. Cone of Topsham ; and they finally awarded the 
prize to Myrton A. Bryant.

HON. JOSIAH CROSBY. 

The death of Hon. Josiah Crosby of Dexter 
removes one of Bowdoin's oldest alumni. Josiah 
Crosby was born in Dover, N. H., in 1818, and pre- 
pared at Foxcroft Academy and after his gradua- 
tion took up the study of law with such men as 
Hon. Fred Hobbs of Bangor and Hon. Charles P. 
Chandler of Dover. He was admitted to the Pis- 
cataquis County bar in 1838 and was in partnership 
with Mr Chandler for some time. In 1845 Mr. 
Crosby moved to Dexter which has been his home 
till the present time. In his career as a lawyer he 
practiced in the courts of Piscataquis, Penobscot 
and Somerset counties and ever won for himself 
fame and distinction. 

In his dealings with other men Mr. Crosby bore 
himself with integrity and many a young man of 
the Dexter neighborhood has been set on the path 
of right by this venerable man. He represented 
Dexter and Corinna in the State legislature of 1857 
and 1863 ; in '65, '67 and '68 he was in the Senate 
from Penobscot County and during the last year of 
his service was president of that body. He took an 
active part in legislation and his influence was felt 
in many important measures. 

In 1863 he was elected a member of the Maine 
Historical Society. He was twice married. By his 
first wife he had two children, both of whom died in 
infancy and by his second nine, seven of whom are 
living. 

He was on the Board of Overseers and Vice- 
President of the Alumni Association. Mr. Crosby 
had traveled abroad extensively, was director of the 
Dexter National Bank and prominent in Masonic 
work. 

Bowdoin mourns the death of so loyal a son, but 
is proud to have borne such an eminent man as 
Hon. Josiah Crosby always proved to be.

MAINE INTERCOLLEGIATE ATHLETIC 

MEET. 

The tenth annual contest of the Maine Intercol- 
legiate Athletic Association was held at Waterville, 
Saturday, May 14, and for the ninth time Bow- 
doin came out as winner, scoring 64 points, two more 
than the total won by the three other colleges. 
University of Maine was second with 50, Bates third 
with 10, and Colby fourth with 2. The Bowdoin 
team acquitted itself nobly, every man working hard 
and doing his share to bring up the score. The 
points were not won by a few individual stars, but 
by the faithful and earnest work of each man who 
entered. 

The day was overcast and cloudy, a fresh wind 
blowing which rather prevented fast time on the 
track. Five records were, however, broken : Parker 
of U. of M. in the pole vault, Weld of Bowdoin in 
the quarter, Bates of Bowdoin in the 220-yards dash, 
and Denning of Bowdoin, who broke his own record 
in the shot-put by nearly a foot, and broke the State 
and New England records in the hammer. 

The attendance was large. Special trains from 
Orono and Brunswick arrived in the morning, each 
carrying two hundred students. Colby's new grand 
stand was filled to overflowing, as well as the bleach- 
ers and side lines. The Maine and Bowdoin bands 
were both present and aided materially the "rooters." 
The Bowdoin band looked especially neat in its new 
suits and led the procession, following the meet most 
effectually. 

The events were run off snappily, no tiresome 
delays occurring. The officers of the meet were : 
Clerk of course, H. L. Swett, Skowhegan ; marshal, 
Walter Hammond, Waterville ; referee, G. R. Lee, 
Portland; judges at finish, Charles Fogg, Hebron, 
H. A. Wing. Lewiston, W. W. Bolster, Lewiston ;

wick, E. Rice, Waterville; starter, A. S. Macreadie,

doin. 

100 YARDS DASH. 

Promptly at two o'clock the meet began with the 
running of the trials of the 100-yards dash. Bates 
of Bowdoin, Winslow of Colby, Porter of Maine, 
and Doherty of Bowdoin qualified. In the final heat 
Bates was set back, but came in ahead ; Porter was 
second, and Doherty finished pluckily as third man. 
Time, 10 2-5 seconds. 

ONE MILE RUN. 
The mile run was a very pretty race and hotly 
contested up to the very finish. Lane of Bates 
won. A. T. Shorey of Bowdoin ran splendidly and 
came in a close second. Thomas of Maine secured 
third place. Time, 4 minutes, 49 seconds. 



440 YARDS DASH. 

Following this came the final heat of the 440- 
yards dash which was possibly the most exciting 
and hotly contested event of the afternoon. Wyman, 
Perkins, and St. Onge of Maine, Weld and Everett 
of Bowdoin, and Wright of Bates qualified in 
the trials. Wyman led at the start with Everett close 
behind. For the first 220 yards Wyman gained till 
he led by about ten yards, when Weld began to 
"climb" and gradually lessened the distance. On 
the turn they were even and started abreast down 
the stretch, then Weld called forth all his reserve 
strength, forged ahead, and won at the finish by over 
a yard. The grand stand went wild ! Cheers, 
shrieks, and yells pierced the air without end, hats 
went off, and the men jumped up and down and 
shouted till the whole stand fairly shook ! The sound 
would die down only to start up again with fresh 
vigor and "Bully for Weld !" was given again and 
again. Weld's time was 51 4-5 seconds, a new 
record ; Everett of Bowdoin finished third. 

120 YARDS HURDLES. 

The high hurdles were unfortunate. Owing to 
the fact that there was no second men heat, Tobey 
of Bowdoin who finished close behind Currier of 
Maine, was shut out, while Ross of Colby was 
able to run a lone heat and qualify for the finals. 
Currier of Maine was first, McClure of Maine sec- 
ond, and Ross of Colby, third. Time, 17 1-5 seconds. 

ONE-HALF MILE. 

The half-mile was a very pretty race. Flanders 
of Bates came in first, A. C. Shorey of Bowdoin 
finished pluckily as second, and Chaplain of Maine 
took third. Time, 2 minutes, 6 3-10 seconds. 

220-YARDS DASH. 

The trials for the 220-yards' dash put Bates and 
Henderson of Bowdoin and Porter of Maine in the 
final heat. Here Bates ran away from the bunch 
and smashed the record, lowering it to 22 1-5 sec- 
onds. Porter took second and Henderson third. 

TWO MILE RUN. 

There was a large list of entries for the two-mile 
but the sharp pace set soon dropped many behind. 
On the third lap P. R. Shorey of Bowdoin took the 
lead with Robinson close behind and kept it for the 
rest of the distance, running steadily and at a good 
pace. Shorey came in first, Robinson second, and 
Robertson of Maine a distant third. Time, 10 min- 
utes. 36 3-5 seconds. 

220-YARDS HURDLES. 

Rowe, Bass, and Porter of Bowdoin, all qualified 
in the trials thus giving Bowdoin nine points in this 
event. Capt. Rowe took first in the final heat, Bass 
second, and Porter third. Time, 26 4-5 seconds.

Williams 7, Bowdoin 2. 
Bowdoin met defeat at the hands of Williams 
last Wednesday in a game characterized by the list- 
less playing of our team. Had Cox received any 
kind of support the score would have been different. 
Westervelt pitched very effectively for Williams, 
striking out sixteen men. The game started out very 
auspiciously for Bowdoin. White, the first man up, 



reached first on Neild's error. Stone singled to right 
field, advancing White to second. Clarke in an 
attempt to sacrifice sent up a little pop fly to Wester- 
velt and a triple play was the result. McCarty, the 
first man up for Williams, knocked out a two-bagger. 
Hogan was out on a foul fly to Gould. Durfee sing- 
led to center field, scoring McCarty from second. 
Nesbitt and Westervelt went out in succession, the 
former to Wiggin and the latter on Hodgson's assist. 
In the second neither side scored. Cox struck out ; 
Wiggin went out on Wesfervelt's assist, and Oakes 
fanned the air. For Williams, Watson flied out to 
Clarke, Holmes flied out to Hodgson and Neild went 
out on Hodgson's assist. Score, 1-0. 

In the third, Gould sent out a two-bagger and was 
advanced to third on Kinsman's single to right field. 
Hodgson struck out. White went out on Wester- 
velt's assist. Stone received a free gift to first. 
Clarke placed a beautiful single over second base, 
scoring Gould and Kinsman and advancing Stone to 
third. Cox was at the bat. Westervelt threw to 
first base in an endeavor to catch Clarke, who was 
playing off. Stone tried for home on the play, but 
was caught at the plate by five yards, retiring the 
side. Williams did not score in her half of the third. 
Score, 1-2'. 

In the fourth, Cox struck out. Wiggin singled to 
right field but was held at first owing to the inability 
of Oakes and Gould to find the ball. For Williams, 
Durfee went out on Cox's assist. Nesbitt reached 
first on Wiggin's error and stole second. Westervelt 
singled to center, scoring Nesbitt, but was himself 
put out at second on a beautiful throw by Stone. 
Watson received a free pass and went to second on 
Holmes' single. Neild was not equal to the emerg- 
ency and popped up a fly to Wiggin. Score, 2-2. 

In the fifth, Bowdoin went out in succession. 
K insman, Hodgson and White being retired on 
strikes. For Williams, Wadsworth struck out. 
McCarty singled and was safe at second on Oakes' 
poor throw to Hodgson. Hogan singled and reached 
second on Stone's poor throw to White. McCarty 
scored. Nesbitt flied out to Oakes. Westervelt sin- 
gled to right field and by quick work on the part of 
Oakes, Holmes was put out at the plate. Score, 
3 — 2. No further scoring was done until the eighth 
inning. 

For Williams, Nesbitt singled. Westervelt 
reached first on a fielder's option, Nesbitt being put 
out at second on Cox's assist. Watson singled, 
advancing Westervelt to third, and stole second. 
Holmes struck out. Neild received a free pass to 
first, filling the bases. Wadsworth cracked out a 
two-bagger, emptying the bases. McCarty singled, 
scoring Wadsworth, but was out at second on 
Oakes' assist, thus retiring the side and ending the 
scoring.

Holy Cross 10, Bowdoin i. 

Bowdoin crossed bats with the strong Holy 
Cross team last Thursday and was defeated by the 
score 10 — I. Bowdoin put up a far snappier game 
than she did in the Williams game but was out- 
classed by the superb playing of the Holy Cross 
representatives. Wiggin, who hurt his hand in the 
Williams game, was unable to play. Cox covered 
the initial bag and fielded his position creditably. 
Noonan pitched very effectively and was backed up 
in gilt-edged shape by his team. Oakes pitched good 
ball for the first four innings, but after that the 
Worcester team quite easily solved his curves. The 
features of the game, for Bowdoin, were the fielding 
and batting of Gould and the base throwing of Stone. 
For Holy Cross the fielding of Devlin, Stankard 
and Flynn. the latter accepting his seventeen 
chances without an error. Stankard and Flynn 
excelled in batting, the former having three two- 
baggers credited to him and the latter three singles. 

White, the first man up for Bowdoin, went out 
on Ennis' assist. Stone flied out to Flynn and 
Clarke went out on Stankard's assist. For Holy 
Cross, Devlin fiied out to Gould. Skelley reached 
first on Hodgson's error, but was put out in an 
attempt to steal second. Noonan reached first on 
fielder's option and stole second. Stankard received 
a free gift to first. Hoey reached first on Cox's error 
and Noonan scored. Stankard was thrown out at 
the plate on assists from Cox and Gould. Score, 
1 — o. 

Neither team scored in the second inning. Bow- 
doin in her half had two men on bases with only 
one out, but Kinsman and Hodgson were not equal 
to the occasion, the former going out on Stank- 
ard's assist and the latter on a fly to short stop. 

In the third, Bowdoin went out in order, in her 
half. For Holy Cross Devlin singled and scored on 
a two-bagger by Stankard. 

In the fourth Holy Cross added one more score 
through singles by Flynn, McKean and Noonan. 

Gould opened the fifth with a two-bagger. Kins- 
man was out on a foul fly to Noonan. Hodgson 
went out on Devlin's assist. Oakes singled, scoring 
Gould. White received a free gift to first and Stone 
struck out. For Holy Cross, Skelley hit for three 



bases. Noonan reached first on Oakes' wild pitch of 
third strike. Stankard hit for two bases, scoring 
Skelley and Noonan. Hoey went out on White's 
assist. Flynn singled, scoring Stankard. McKeon 
and Einnis went out in succession, the former to Cox 
and the latter on Hodgson's assist. 

In the sixth, Holy Cross scored three more runs 
on two bases on balls coupled by errors by Oakes 
and White. The score was augmented by two more 
tallies in the eighth inning on a passed ball by Stone 
and two singles, making the final score 10 — 1.

Bowdoin 6, Colby o. 
Bowdoin crossed bats with Colby, Wednesday, 
for the first time this year and won by the score, 
6 — o. Cox was invincible while Coombs was hit 
freely. The game was called during the second half 
of the seventh inning on account of rain. A full 
account of the game will appear in the next issue. 



Beta Thetes 17, Alpha Delts 2. 
The Beta's won a one-sided game of base-ball 
from the A. D.'s Thursday, May 12, by the score 
17 — 2. Libby pitched an excellent game for Beta 
and he received excellent support, Roberts and John- 
son especially accepting some very difficult chances. 
Sanborn at short stop played the best game for the 
Alpha Delts. The batteries were Norton and Libby, 
Chandler and Childs. The Betas secured 13 hits 
and the A. D.'s 5.

Track Meet. 



Once more Bowdoin has 
won the Intercollegiate 
Track Meet. It was a great victory — perhaps 
t-h« greatest one of its kind we have ever had. 
At no time has our opponent had such a strong 
team as she had this year, and at no 
time since the formation of the associa- 
tion have Bowdoin supporters felt so nervous 
as they did this year. Indeed, it would, 
perhaps, not be too much to say that 
the majority of the people of the State believed 
the University of Maine would win. But she 
didn't. An excellent college spirit, grim deter- 
mination, and splendid coaching turned out a 
team which scored a splendid victory. Our 
athletes acquitted themselves in a most credit- 
able manner and upheld the athletic honors of 
the college beyond the expectations of the 
most sanguine. To them and to the coach the 



entire student body owes gratitude for the out- 
come of the meet. We should feel proud of 
them for Saturday's laurels. It was a great 
meet, a great team and a great victory. 



Shop Work. 



The prospect is looking 
bright for the renewal of 
the course in Shop Work which had to be dis- 
continued this year. The plan is to refit the 
old shop room with new benches and individ- 
ual sets of tools to accommodate a class of ten 
men. Mr. Simpson, who conducted the course 
last year, intends to visit Tech and familiarize 
himself with the methods followed there, so 
that the work may be as nearly as possible 
equivalent to the first year work in a technical 
school. 

The increasing number of men who enter 
Tech and other scientific schools from Bow- 
doin each year make a course in Shop Work 
almost a necessity, and every effort will be 
made to get the necessary funds before next- 
fall. 



The announcement of the 

Professor Dennis' resignation of Professor 

Resignation. Dennis is received with 

regret by not only the men 

who are fortunate in taking his courses but by 

every man in college. Ever since coming to 

Bowdoin he has allied himself closely with 

every interest of the undergraduates and he 

has done a large part in moulding the strong 

democratic spirit of our student life during the 

past few years. His work for the debating 

course has been more valuable than most 

people realize and he must be given much of 

the credit for placing our debating interests on 

such a firm footinsf. 



_ _ „ To-morrow occurs one of 

Base- Ball. , 

the most important games 

of the season. Bowdoin has beaten Bates for 
the past five games in succession and is of 
course anxious to keep up her record of victo- 
ries. At this time, however, Bates is very

strong judging by the work she has done dur- 
ing the last three weeks, and there will have to 
be a decided improvement in the work of the 
team if we expect to win. The games out of 
State last week were very unsatisfactory to 
the supporters of the white. The team 
showed little advance over its previous play, 
not giving any evidence of any concerted team 
play, and its lack of snap and aggressiveness 
were fatal. We believe, however, that these 
faults have been eradicated this week and that 
a much stronger team will go to Lewiston 
to-morrow than played in the Williams and 
Holy Cross games. Let every man in college 
be at Garcelon Field to root for the team. 



Announcement. 



The Directory of the Class 
of 1903 appears in this 
issue. This was received over six weeks ago 
but has been held over owing to the large 
amount of material on hand that had to go in. 



Invitation Meet 

and 

Sub=Freshmen. 



The college has witnessed 
a great revival in its 
attempts to draw new men 
to itself this winter. The 
organization of so many sectional clubs, the 
banquets of these societies and the college 
rally all testify to the fact that Bowdoin has 
cast off that lethargic, "don't care if you come 
or not spirit," and has entered the struggle 
of drawing doubtful men to itself. A good 
opportunity to substantially forward this work 
presents itself a week from to-morrow when 
the Bowdoin Invitation Meet for preparatory 
schools comes off. Every man in college 
should consider it his duty to entertain right 
royally the visiting men on that occasion, and 
give such a good and lasting impression of 
Bowdoin that nothing will satisfy our guests 
but future membership in our Alma Mater's 
cherished ranks. It is not alone the visiting 
athletes we should take pains to entertain. 
We ought moreover to make the meet a time 
of inviting other promising men to visit us. 



Let every man do his duty to the college the 
day of the Invitation Meet just as he would 
if he were playing on the foot-ball or base- 
ball teams. 



Are our celebrations so 
College Spirit and numerous that they have 
Celebrations. become commonplace? On 

the night of a celebration 
parade it is not college spirit for half 
of the fellows to walk the sidewalk, or escort 
lady friends while "a baker's dozen" follow the 
band in the street. If your clothes are too 
good change them before coming out. Your 
friends will think no less of you if you pay 
your first respects to the college on such occa- 
sions. 



ALPHA DELTA PHI CONVENTION. 

1 he seventy-second annual convention of 
the Alpha Delta Phi fraternity was held with 
the Chicago chapter at the Lhiiversity of 
Chicago Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, 
May 4, 5 and 6. 

Wednesday evening the delegates assem- 
bled at the Chicago Beach Hotel, the head- 
quarters of the convention, the eastern dele- 
gates having arrived in the afternoon in 
special cars. The convention session began 
Thursday morning and continued throughout 
the day, the delegates lunching at noon at the 
University Commons. In the evening a 
smoker was held at the Washington Park- 
Club. The business of the convention was 
concluded Friday morning, and in the after- 
noon an open meeting was held in Mandel 
Hall, the University theater. After a wel- 
come by President Harper of the University, 
Brother Hamilton W. Mabie, Williams, '67, 
gave the address, at the conclusion of which 
a reception was tendered him at the Reynolds 
Club rooms, the Students' Club of the Uni- 
versity. 

Friday evening came the annual banquet at 
the Auditorium Hotel, at which about two 
hundred were present. The banquet was most 
pleasantly opened by the receipt of a telegram 
by the toast-master, Brother Mabie, announc- 
ing the purchase of a chapter house by the 
Brown Chapter. Some very enjoyable toasts

brought to a close a very successful conven- 
tion. 

The delegate from the Bowdoin Chapter 
was Philoon, '05. 



PROFESSOR DENNIS TO LEAVE 
BOWDOIN. 

The news that Professor Alfred L. P. Den- 
nis is to resign from the board of instructors 
to accept the Associate Professorship of Mod- 
ern History at the University of Chicago 
comes as a great surprise to all. 

Professor Dennis has been connected with 
the college only three years, but in that time 
he has proved himself a most proficient 
instructor and has always won the respect of 
all who have had occasion to take his courses. 

After he graduated from Princeton in 1896 
he studied in the School of Political Science, 
Columbia University, during the years of 
1896-99, and in the University of Heidelberg, 
Germany, in 1897, receiving the degree of 
Ph.D. for European History at Columbia in 
1901. During the years 1900 and 1901 he 
was assistant in History at Harvard. 

Bowdoin deeply regrets to lose such a val- 
uable man as Professor Dennis, but extends 
congratulations and wishes him continued suc- 
cess in his new professorship. 



PROFESSOR LITTLE AND AMERICAN 
ALPINE CLUB. 

The Boston Globe of recent issue contains an 
account of the American Alpine Club which is 
devoted to mountain climbing. The club numbers 
about sixty and contains the name of Professor 
George T. Little. Professor Little was a member 
of the parties that made the first ascents of Rogers 
Peak in the Selkirk's and of Heejee, Nome 
and Iona in the Canadian Rockies. In 1896 he was 
one of the party that went to British Columbia. It 
was on this trip that he lost his friend, Philip S. 
Abbott, Harvard, '90, who was attempting to climb 
Mt. Lyfroy. 

ART BUILDING NOTES. 

A valuable addition to the paintings of the Boyd 
Gallery may be seen in the portrait of Professor 
Karl Von Rydingsvard. Mrs. A. Brewster Sewell, 
one of the foremost portrait painters in America, is 
the artist who painted the picture. The portrait 
comes to us direct from the American Artists' Exhi- 
bition in New York, and will remain in the Art 
Building all summer, or at least as long as Prof. 
Von Rydingsvard stays in Brunswick, where he will 
conduct his summer school in wood-carving. 



IReligious Botes, 

One of the most successful meetings of the 
year was held last Thursday evening when the 
subject under discussion was "The Abuse of 
Silence." The meeting was in charge of 
Clark, '04, who outlined several ways how col- 
lege men may become unfair to themselves by 
maintaining a silence in words or acts when 
principle demands that something be said or 
done. During the evening a solo was sung by 
Romily Johnson, '06, which was much enjoyed. 
Thirty-three men were in attendance. 

The last meeting of the year of the Fresh- 
man Bible Class will be held Saturday night. 
It is hoped that every one who has been in the 
class at all this year will be present at this 
meeting to look over the work of the year. 



BAND CONCERT. 

The second open-air concert by the College Band 
was given last Friday, in the band stand which has 
been erected under the Thorndike Oak. The con- 
cert, although short, was composed of good selec- 
tions and all were heartily applauded. 

Each concert makes the value of the band more 
appreciated and the informal gathering of the stu- 
dents more pleasant. 



RICKER FOR WEST POINT. 

The friends of Ricker, '06, will be sorry to know 
he has left college to accept an appointment to West 
Point. Ricker entered Bowdoin last fall from Exe- 
ter, being admitted to the Sophomore Class. He

college go with him.

Central Railroad and the electric roads to Bath, 
Lewiston, and Portland, have not yet been 
announced, but they will permit one to reach and to 
leave Brunswick every hour in the day and evening. 



WORCESTER MEET. 

The Worcester Meet on Friday and Saturday of 
this week will be the eighteenth in the history of 
the N. E. I. A. A., and the third in the series for 
the new championship cup. This cup is held by the 
college scoring the largest number of points and at 
the end of fifteen years will be held by the college 
having the majority of championships. Thus far 
Dartmouth has won once and Amherst twice. 

Bowdoin's prospects for a winning team are per- 
haps not great, yet we have a better balanced team 
than we have had for some time. 

The result of the contest is somewhat doubtful as 
four of the leading colleges in the meet are pretty 
evenly matched. Massachusetts Institute of Tech- 
nology defeated Amherst, in a dual meet last Sat- 
urday by two points. Dartmouth in turn defeated 
M. I. T. two weeks ago in a dual meet by twelve 
points, and Williams turned the tables on Dart- 
mouth last Saturday by two points. The first 
four places ought to go to these four colleges 
with first place a questionable issue. We feel con- 
fident that our men will prove point winners in many 
events. Points in the hammer, shot, 100-, 220- and 



440-yard dashes, and two mile ought to be forth- 
coming and with these Bowdoin ought to make a 
good showing. The list of entries is as follows : 

100- Yards Dash — Bates. 

220- Yards Dash — Bates, Weld. 

440- Yards Run. — Weld, Everett. 

880- Yards Run. — A. C. Shorey, Everett. 

Mile Run.— P. R. Shorey, A. C. Shorey, Robin- 
son, A. T. Shorey. 

Two-Mile Run. — P. R. Shorey, Robinson. 

220- Yards Hurdles. — Rowe. 

Broad Jump — Rowe. 

Discus. — Denning. 

Shot-Put. — Denning. 

Hammer Throw. — Denning. 

College Botes. 

The History Club met with Seavey, Tuesday 
night. 

The Quill appeared this week, a review of which 
will occur in the next issue. 

Pictures of Captain Rowe and Denning appeared 
in Monday night's Lewiston Journal. 

The Deutscher Verein was represented at the 
University of Maine banquet, Wednesday evening, by 
Wilder, 04. 

The Portland Sunday Telegram of last week 
contained a half-page illustrated write-up on the new 
grand-stand. 

Many students who stayed Saturday evening 
after the meet in Waterville, attended the college 
dance at Thayer Hall. 

A mass-meeting was called for Tuesday night at 
7.15 in Memorial Hall. Four undergraduates and 
one reporter responded to the call. 

Professor Robinson visited Machias Academy, 
Wednesday, as representative from the Faculty to 
the fitting school, which is one of Bowdoin's four. 

President Hyde will deliver the Baccalaureate 
Sermons at Bangor Seminary, Bryn Mawr College, 
and Trinity College, Durham, North Carolina. 
Professor Dennis will deliver the Baccalaureate Ser- 
mon at North Yarmouth Academy. 

A number of students attended the lecture given 
by Rev. Telesphore Taisne, pastor of the Sixth 
Street Congregational Church, Auburn, Wednesday 
evening, in the College Church. Mr. Taisne grew 
up as a young man in the Roman Catholic Church 
in France, and he told the story of how he was 
forced to leave that church and become a Protestant. 



TENNIS TOURNAMENT. 
To-day and to-morrow the Maine Intercollegiate 
Tennis Tournament will take place at Orono. Bow- 
doin is represented by Dana, Tobey, Donnell and 
Williams. A full account of the tournament will be 
given in the next issue. 



GAME TO-MORROW. 

Bowdoin will cross bats with Bates to-morrow 

afternoon for the second time this year. . Four 

weeks ago Bowdoin defeated Bates, but the latter 

team has improved wonderfully since then and a bat- 



46

tie royal is looked for. Bates has defeated Maine 
and Tufts, the latter team having defeated Yale 
and Dartmouth.

DIRECTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1903 OF 
BOWDOIN COLLEGE. 

The following directory aims to give both the 
permanent and present addresses, also the occupa- 
tion of the members of the class. As will be seen, 
the record is not complete owing to the failure on 
the part of some members of the class to respond to 
the secretary's letter. Anyone whose name does not 
appear in the directory in full will' confer a great 
favor upon the secretary by forwarding the desired 
information to

College 
Doctor 

Pond'sExtract is an everyday stand-by 
among college students. They know 
that it is a sovereign remedy for the 
many accidents incidental to school 
life. Pond's Extract — the old family 
doctor — might with equal propriety be 
called the old college doctor. For over 
60years Pond'sExtract has been doing 
a work of mercy — curing cuts, bruises, 
burns; relieving aches and pains; 
easing suffering, and making life 
brighter. It is just as efficient to-day. 
A bottle should always be kept conve- 
nient. Soothes and freshens the face 
after shaving. Don'texperiment with 
so-called remedies said to 
be "just as good as Pond's 
Extract"— there is no 
substitute. WateredWitch 
Hazel, a weak solution 
—sometimes offered in 
place of Pond's Extract 
—has no medicinal 
value— is positively 
worthless. Pond's Ex- 
tract CUBES— therefore 
is priceless.

BRUNSWICK, MAINE, MAY 27, 1904. 



NO. 6. 



THE MAY QUILL. 

The May Quill has a good deal of variety 
and charm, containing, as it does, an attractive 
essay, two good stories and some very pretty 
verse. The most important contribution is 
perhaps an essay on "The Dilettante Danger" 
by H. E. Andrews, '04. While the reader will 
not by any means agree with all of the author's 
statements and conclusions, he is grateful for 
the many stimulating; and illuminating sentences 
that abound in the discussion. For instance, 
these words might well be written in letters of 
gold on every Class Day program: "Much 
may with justice be required of the young 
graduate, especially in the way of a will to 
acquire quickly and thoroughly what he lacks. 
All clanger of the dilettante spirit is passed, 
if the college man does faithfully without 
whining or shirking whatever is nearest at 
hand. There are, we fear, too many who 
'evade responsibility and fall to pitying them- 
selves and plotting holidays." " The words 
apply, of course, just as well to undergradu- 
ates as to the younger alumni. 

As for the stories in the number, "The Iris 
Flower," by F. K. Ryan, takes the reader to 
an Eastern Land and entertains him with a 
love story of a young American civil engineer 
and the traditional princess. Some of the 
descriptions are excellent and the custom of 
setting a light adrift by the Eastern maiden to 
guide her lover to her side is so well handled 
that it offsets the many conventional features 
of the tale. "A Test of Honor," by C. L. 
Bavis, '06, is a simple and thoroughly natural 
college story, the plot turning on the question, 
'Ts it honorable to recommend to a trusted 
friend for a position of some importance a 
college mate whose course has been distin- 
guished by dissipation and the lack of all 
sense of responsibility?" 

The poetry of this number while of no 
great distinction is unusually melodious. It con- 
sists of a verse on Hubbard Hall by Charles P. 
Cleaves, '05 ; "When the Spray Goes Flying 
By," by J. N. Emery, '05 ; and "An Evening 
in May," by C. W. Snow, '07, some lines of 
which have a good deal of rhythm and poetic 
thought. 



We are glad to see that the Silhouettes 
announce a special Hawthorne number of the 
Quill with articles by Judge Symonds, Profes- 
sor Little and Mr. H. S. Chapman. Such 
contributors assure a valuable contribution to 
the Hawthorne centenary. 

The Goose Tracks are unusually witty — 
and it is refreshing to see the light occasional 
college verse again appearing. Ye Postman 
begins well, but spends far too much time on 
a mere review of other periodicals. Taken all 
in all, the May Quill is very creditable to the 
enterprising editors. 



NEW ATTENDANCE REGULATIONS. 

On account of the adoption of the semester sys- 
tem, the Faculty has found it necessary to make cer- 
tain changes in the college calendar, which will be 
noted in the following regulations for the division of 
the academic year. 

1. The college year to begin and close on dates 
as at present established. 

2. That the year be divided into two semesters, 
or terms of equal length ; the first to close on or 
near the end of the first week in February; the sec- 
ond, on the Wednesday preceding commencement 
day. 

3. That the examinations of the first semester 
occupy the eight or more days at the close of the 
first term. 

4. That the second semester begin on the day 
following the last day scheduled for the examina- 
tions of the first semester. 

5. That the Easter vacation and the Christmas 
vacation stand as at present. 

6. That Thanksgiving Day be granted as a holi- 
day only. 

7. That the examination of the second semester 
close on the Thursday immediately preceding com- 
mencement week. 

8. That Ivy Day be appointed for the Friday 
preceding commencement week. 

9. That commencement week stand as at pres- 
ent ; also, the examinations for admission to college. 



CHANGES IN REGULATIONS CONCERNING 
ABSENCE FROM COLLEGE EXERCISES. 

Note. All regulations concerning registration 
and the presenting of excuses for absence remain as 
at present, viz. : each student is required to register 
on the first day of each semester ; and students must 
present all petitions for excuse for absences from 
chapel or from lectures and recitations to the class 



50 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



officer for his approval and deposit the same at the 
Registrar's office. 



CHANGES. 



1. On and after September 20, 1904, the present 
system of granting 6 for attendance rank will be 
discontinued, and 

2. In place of this, each student will be allowed 
five unexcused absences in each course in any semes- 
ter, but under the following conditions. 

3. All absences from college exercises other 
than chapel and required gymnasium which are 
incurred during the three days at the opening and 
at the close of a semester, or during the three days 
immediately preceding and following all holidays 
and vacation, will count double. 

4. Students will be excused, as at present, for 
the following causes: (a) when at work earning 
money to defray college expenses; (b) when repre- 
senting any of the recognized college associations 
and organizations; (c) when voting; (d) when 
necessarily absent on account of family bereavement ; 
(e) when attending the wedding of a near relative. 

5. Students will be excused on account of illness 
only when the maximum number of unexcused 
absences has been reached ; and in such cases only 
on presentation of a physician's certificate. 

6. Students will be conditioned in any or all 
courses in which they have incurred more than the 
allowed number of unexcused absences. 

7. Conditions thus incurred will be made up in 
accordance with the regulations of the college gov- 
erning such cases. 

It is possible that some minor changes may be 
made in the above regulations before the end of the 
present term, but these outline the general policy of 
attendance regulations to be in force next year. 



THE WORCESTER MEET. 

The annual track and field meet of the New 
England colleges took pace on the Worcester 
Oval last Friday and Saturday. Amherst 
proved to be an easy winner while Bow- 
doin finished sixth in the race. Nearly all the 
men who won points at Waterville were taken 
on the trip. Captain Rowe had the hardest 
kind of luck in his trial of the low hurdles 
when he had a safe lead over Hubbard of 
Amherst but fell on the ninth hurdle and after 
starting again his shoe came off. Hubbard 
afterwards won second place in the finals. We 
also lost valuable points by an injury to Bates 
in the trials for the 220 dash which obliged 
him to simply loaf through the finals and take 
last place. 

One of the features of the whole meet was 
the work of Denning in winning points in all 
the weight events and in breaking the record 
in the hammer throw formerly held by himself 



by hurling the missile 138 ft. 8 in. Shorey, '07, 
and Weld, ran pretty races, the former win- 
ning third in the two-mile against a fast field 
and the latter winning a point in the quarter. 
The points of the meet were divided as fol- 
lows : Amherst, 48 1-3; Dartmouth, 28; Wil- 
liams, 2~ 1-2; Brown, 17; M. I. T., 16 1-2; 
Bowdoin, 13; Tufts, 5; Wesleyan, 3. The 
University of Maine, the University of Ver- 
mont, and Trinity College had men entered in 
several events but failed to win any points. 



BASE = BALL. 



Bowdoin 6, Coley 0. 

Bowdoin defeated Colby, on Wednesday of last 
week, in a rather one-sided game by the score 6 — o. 
The game was won in the sixth inning by clean hit- 
ting coupled with numerous errors on the part of 
Colby. Coombs was ineffective while Colby could 
not solve Cox's curves, obtaining but one hit off 
him during the seven innings of play. Cowing, the 
first man up for Colby, flied out to Piper. New- 
man struck out and Coombs went out on Stone's 
assist. For Bowdoin White received free pass to 
first. Stone reached first on Craig's error. Clarke 
Hied out to Leighton and Cox struck out. Wiggin 
reached first on Pugsley's error. With the bases full 
Piper fanned the air. In the second Colby went out 
in one. two, three order. For Bowdoin, Gould 
reached first on an error. Kinsman struck out and 
Hodgson singled, advancing Gould to third. White 
received base on balls. Stone flied out to Newman 
and Gould was out at the plate on Newman's quick 
delivery. 

Both sides went out in succession in the third. 

In the fourth Colby went out in order. For 
Bowdoin Kinsman singled and was advanced to 
second on Hodgson's single. White singled, scor- 
ing Kinsman. Stone reached first on Wiley's error 
and Hodgson scored. Clarke flied out to Leighton. 
Cox singled, scoring White. Wiggin followed with 
another hit and Stone scored. Piper reached first on 
an error by Craig and Cox and Wiggin scored. 
Gould struck out, retiring the side and ending the 
scoring for the remainder of the game. The final 
score was 6 — o. The summary :

Bates 6, Bowdoin i. 

Bowdoin lost its second championship game of 
the season in a disappointing contest at Auburn last 
Saturday afternoon. The game was lost through 
inability to hit. Doe combined with some very 
costly errors at critical times. The game was 
clearly Bates' from the start. Bowdoin sadly lacking 
in the hitting and all-round playing which she put 
up against Colby on Wednesday. 

White was the first man up for Bowdoin and 
was safe at first on an error by Wight. Stone was 
out on a grounder to Doe, Clarke fanned, and Cox 
went out on a long hit to center. In Bates' half she 
scored two runs — a lead which she kept throughout 
the game. Bowman singled and Austin sacrificed. 
Kendall went out on a liner to White. Wood 
reached first on an error and Bowman 
scored. Wight got his base on another error and 
Wood scored, Rogers was out, White to Wiggin. 

In the second neither side scored. In the third 
Bates got three more runs. Kendall got a clean 
single and Wood followed suit. Wright and Rogers 
were out. Bowers singled, scoring Kendall. Rounds 
reached first on an error, and Wood and Bowers 
crossed the plate. Doe Hied out to Kinsman. 

Bowdoin got her only run in the fourth. Stone 
sent a fly to Rounds, who missed it. Clarke hit to 
short and was safe, but was later caught at second. 
Wiggin made a good sacrifice and Stone scored. 

Bates got another run in the eighth. Rogers was 
safe on an error. Johnson struck out, but Doe got 
the only hit Bates made off Cox, scoring Rogers. 
This ended the scoring for the remainder of the 
game.

Bowdoin 7, Massachusetts State College 4. 

Bowdoin defeated the Massachusetts State Col- 
lege Wednesday afternoon, in a game characterized 
by the listless playing of the visitors, by the score 
7 — 4- The Massachusetts team went up in the air 
in the fourth inning and Bowdoin by opportune hit- 
ting aided materially by numerous errors on the part 
of the visitors piled up seven runs. A full account 
of the game will appear in the next issue. 



Bowdoin Medics, 13 ; Portland All Hotel, 3 

At Richardson's field Saturday afternoon the All 
Hotel nine was defeated by the Bowdoin Medics, 13 
to 3. Several of the regular players of the hotel 
crew were missing and their places were filled by 
substitutes. Pratt pitched for the winners and Hel- 
ton for the losers. The features of the game were 
a long home run by Bloomer of the All Hotels and a 
brilliant one-hand catch by O'Connor, first baseman 
of the Medics. 



LONGWOOD TOURNAMENT. 

The fifth annual tournament of the New England 
Intercollegiate Tennis Association began Monday at 
Longwood. In the singles Tobey and Dana did 
good work, but were unable to pull out a victory. 
F. R. Smith of Williams beat Tobey 5 — 7, 6 — 3, 7 — 5, 
and W. H. Wise of Tufts beat Dana 1—6, 8—6, 
6 — 4. In the doubles Bowdoin lost to Brown in 
straight sets 6 — 3, 6 — 3.

Tennis Victory. 



We have reason to feel 



pleased over the result of 
the tennis tournament at Orono, last week, in 
which we again proved ourselves the cham- 
pions among the Maine colleges. Though 
tennis is not so exciting, perhaps, as base-ball 
or foot-ball, it is nevertheless an attractive 
sport, and one which requires a good amount 
of ability. We extend congratulations to our 
team for their victory. 



If we consider the athletic 
Bowdoin at the strength of the various 
Worcester Meet, teams at Worcester Oval 
last week we should indeed 
congratulate the track team on its good work 
at the Meet. If we had been a little more 
fortunate in regard to injuries to our men 



there is no doubt that we should have come 
out nearer the top. One thing can now be 
clearly seen for which the college paper can- 
not but criticise the management so that it 
may be a lesson to us in future years. As 
things developed at the contest. Small, who 
did such valuable work for us in the State 
meet, would have surely won points for us in 
the weights had he been taken on the trip. 
With the generous support which the students 
are willing to give to the management it seems 
to be a mistake to leave men at home to save 
expense who might win points. 



It is the wish of the 
Alumni Orient as the college 

Department. paper to represent all the 
doings and activities of 
Bowdoin and of Bowdoin men, and in particu- 
lar do we wish to have an alumni department 
full of news and matter interesting to the 
graduates of the college. Possibly at times it 
has been allowed to slip and to give way to 
other things, but it is our sincere wish to keep 
this section of the Orient live and up-to-date. 
In order to do this, however, we must have the 
earnest co-operation of the undergraduates 
and especially the alumni body itself, as it is 
almost impossible for a few men to cover all 
the news. Any contribution and assistance 
rendered along this line would be most hear- 
tily appreciated by the editorial board. 



Nothing can give more 
Medical Students satisfaction to those inter- 
Appreciated, ested in the welfare of 
Bowdoin than the active 
interest that is being taken in college affairs 
by the members of the Medical School. In 
musical and athletic circles we now find some 
of our best men in the medical department 
and next year when the two departments open 
at about the same time there ought to be even 
closer alliance. Too often we consider the 
Medical School of Maine and Bowdoin Col- 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



53 



lege entirely distinct bodies, but in the days to 
come they should be as close in interests as 
they are neighbors in location. There is a 
chance for us also to remember this more 
practically when we are soliciting new men to 
come to Brunswick, for many could be influ- 
enced to take a medical course here to whom 
the literary department does not appeal. 



New Regulations. 



The new faculty regula- 



tions which we publish 
for the first time to-day contain informa- 
tion of vital interest to every student. The 
most striking changes are in the rules in regard 
to cuts from college exercises which may seem 
rather severe to many, but we believe that 
every fair thinking man will admit that the 
new regulations will be conducive to the best 
work. At least, it seems so in theory. 



Inter=SchoIastic 
Meet and 
Sub=Freshmen. 



To-morrow the Prepara- 
tory Schools entered in the 
Interscholastic Meet will 
send large delegations of 
athletes and students to the college, and it 
devolves upon us to entertain them in the best 
way possible. The day ought to be and we 
hope will be an "open house" day for every 
"Prep" school man who is attending the meet. 
Sub-Freshmen are bound to judge the college 
in great part by the treatment they receive at 
the hands of the students. This is our last 
opportunity this year to entertain prospective 
Bowdoin men, and everybody is duty bound to 
make this the best and most successful of the 



Debating Interests. 



It is with surprise and dis- 



gust that the Orient finds 
itself forced to reprimand the student body, 
on its lack of action in regard to the mass- 
meeting called for a discussion of debating 
interests last week. To the call, plainly posted, 
only four men responded. Does that show 
proper encouragement for a winning team 



next year? And, to make a bad matter worse, 
a mass-meeting called on account of track 
athletics the same hour was largely attended. 
Does the student body of Bowdoin College 
place physical contests above those of the mind, 
in its interests? Cannot Bowdoin College, 
whose chief claim to eminence is that mighty 
intellectual vigor stirred to life beneath the 
teachings in her halls, show enough interest in 
the sole method we have of matching our 
intellects against those of contemporary insti- 
tutions, to get together for a few moments to 
talk things over and make plans? Let's throw 
off our lethargy, fellows, and show that we 
deserved our victory over Amherst. 



Song Book. 



Something that Bowdoin 
has long wanted is a song 
book. We have as many good songs as other 
colleges and it is high time that they were col- 
lected and published as they are in other col- 
leges. And now it seems probable that we 
will very soon have a book of Bowdoin songs 
of which we may be proud. About seventy 
songs have been prepared for publication by 
some of the students and all that is needed to 
make the plan a reality is a guarantee of suf- 
ficient financial support. A music book of any 
kind is very expensive and in order to compile 
this book as it should be a large amount of 
money must be expended. A canvass is to be 
made among the students and alumni, and it 
may only be said here that each and every man 
should pledge himself for one or more copies. 
If the scheme is supported as it should be, we 
will have by the midde of July one of the best 
collections of college songs to be found any- 
where. 



Colby Game. 



To-morrow afternoon Bow- 
doin meets Colby for the 
last championship game this season, at Water- 
ville. This is the most important game that 
we play this year, for upon it hinges our 
chances for the championship this year. If 
we win this game we will still have a fisfhtins:

show of being first in the State in base-ball, 
but if we should lose we can not possibly win 
the championship. The prospects for a Bow- 
doin victory are much brighter than they were 
after the Bates game, for the men by hard 
work this week, have gradually eradicated the 
loose playing which proved fatal in the game 
last Saturday and have at last "struck their 
batting gait." In order to make the victory 
more certain it is imperative that the team 
receive the hearty support of the college. 
Strong and vigorous cheering is needed 
throughout the entire game. There is noth- 
ing so encouraging to the men as to let them 
know that the whole student body has confi- 
dence in them and is behind them in every 
game. Let every Bowdoin student who pos- 
sibly can, be present at Waterville to-morrow 
to cheer the team to victory. 



PROFESSOR DENNIS' SUCCESSOR. 

The History Chair left vacant by Professor 
Dennis' resignation will be occupied next year 
by Mr. Roberts, an assistant in History at 
Harvard. Mr. Roberts has specialized in 
American History and Government and will 
take a Ph.D. degree in those studies this year. 
He is a graduate of the University of Wiscon- 
sin. He attended the Columbia Graduate 
School one vear before going to Harvard.

ensuing year. 



INVITATION MEET. 
To-morrow on Whittier Athletic Field, occurs 
the annual Invitation Meet. Over a dozen prepara- 
tory schools have entered men and some good races 
are looked for. Westbrook Seminary seems to be 
the favorite picked for a winner. Westbrook won 
the University of Maine Invitation Meet last Sat- 
urday with a score of 55 points. However, Hebron, 
Kent's Hill and Brunswick High are possible win- 
ners.

Mrs. William D. Northend of Salem, Mass., has 
presented an attractive portrait of her late husband 
to the college library. 

General Chamberlain was one of the speakers in 
the convention of Civil War veterans held at Hart- 
ford, Conn., last week. 

The Seniors and Juniors began marching 
on Monday in preparation for the Commencement 
and Ivy Day exercises. 

President White of Colby recently announced 
that a generous sum had been presented to the col- 
lege for the purpose of beautifying the campus. 

Bowdoin 2d defeated the Cony High School, 
Wednesday, in a one-sided game by the score 13 — 1. 
Lewis pitched very effectively, allowing but three 
scattered hits. 

Professor Robinson was away last week visiting 
schools, among others schools of fish. As he 
thoughtfully presented the Faculty with part of his 
catch, his absence will probably be excused. 

A party of D. U.'s hired a yacht from Freeport, 
Saturday night, and went down the bay fishing. 
They got back the next afternoon with over a hun- 
dred pounds of cod caught near Whaleboat Island. 

Last Tuesday afternoon the Beta Theta Pi team 
won a decisive victory over the Psi Upsilon team by 
the score 22 — 5. The Psi U.'s were unable to con- 
nect with the pitching of Libby while Cushing and 
Lewis were hit quite freely. 

James A. Cook, editor of the Brunsivick Record, 
and formerly with the Boston Journal, gave an 
interesting talk on Journalism before the Freshman 
Class last Monday morning. Mr. Cook related 
many interesting experiences that he and other 
reporters have had in Boston. 

Miss Nina Judd of Augusta, Me., has recently 
presented to the college library valuable papers 
relating to the settlement and sale of land in the 
townships given by the Commonwealth of Massa- 
chusetts to the college. These papers were from 
the estate of Hon. Reuel Williams, a former trustee 
of Bowdoin. 

The Class of 1906 University of Maine has given 
thought into its culture and has finally developed 
this modern structure of caceophany entitled "A 
Class Yell:"

Three times three for the red and white.

It was tried on the class, then on the Experimental 
Station ; then on the cows and calves, and finally 
adopted unanimously. Great credit is due, we are 
informed, to Miss Ethelyn Smith, Miss Nora Floyd, 



Mr. Jack Thomas and Mr. Clark Chapman. It will 
be a beautiful thing with which to call the hands 
to dinner in haying time or stir up the mules on the 
farm, after these students of agriculture have gone 
out into their great life work. Taken in connection 
with the now-famous alliterative call of thK Univer- 
sity of Maine itself, entitled "Whiskey Wee Wee! 
Holy Mucki ! Waw-w-w," which is the higher call 
to duty at Orono, it ought to create a harmony of ■ 
Higher Criticisms and Treatises on Fertilizers, suf- 
ficient to the crying needs at Orono. Taken con- 
sonantly, its two yells suggest a battle 'between "the

Professor Robinson returned this week from 
a visit to Washington Academy at East Machias, 
where he made an official examination of the school. 

Professor Johnson illustrated to his classes this 
week a method of teaching the modern languages 
by the use of the phonograph. It is possible that 
some use may be made of this instrument for teach- 
ing correct pronunciation. 

Mr. Foster, a graduate of Harvard, will succeed 
Mr. Sills on the Bowdoin Faculty next year. Mr. 
Foster has taught for two years at Bates and comes 
highly recommended. He will conduct the debat- 
ing course and act as assistant in the English 
Department. 

Professor Moody has again started his annual 
course in surveying. The class meets every Friday 
at 3.30. The first two exercises consist of lectures 
and of working out examples, after which the work 
will be done out-doors in actual manipulation of 
.surveyors' instruments.

year. A week ago Wednesday, Colby proved an 
easy prey for the home team, but this was due 
largely to the poor condition of Coombs. Reports 
from Waterville state that Coombs has regained his 
old-time form and if this report is true, the game 
will be a pitchers battle. On Monday Bowdoin 
plays Bates on Garcelon Field for the third time this 
season. Each team has won a game and this 
game ought to prove a hot contest. If Cox is in 
condition to pitch this game, Bates ought to be an 
easy victim. On Friday the team meets Harvard 
and although we do not expect the team to win, we 
do expect them to make a good showing. The fol- 
lowing day Bowdoin plays Brown at Providence. 
Bowdoin has not for some years had athletic rela- 
tions with Brown and the outcome of the game is 
hard to prophesy. Judging, however, from the 
record made thus far by Brown, Bowdoin ought to 
come off victorious. 



CLASS OF 1897. 
J. W. Hewitt is assisting Professor Woodruff 
in the preparation of a Greek Reader, to be pub- 
lished in the series of Greek text-books edited by

DR. GEORGE PAYSON JEFFARDS. 

On Monday, May 9, 1904, occurred the death of 
Dr. George Payson Jefferds at his home in Bangor, 
Me., one of the oldest and most respected citizens 
of the city. Dr. Jefferds was born in Kennebunk- 
port, Me., May 7, 1816. He was educated at the 
Latin School at Andover, Mass., and at Limerick 
Academy, from which he entered Bowdoin in the 
Class of 1838. After graduation he taught in 
Alfred, Me., and Nashua, N. H, and then entered 
the Harvard Medical School. Later he graduated 
from the Medical School of Maine with high stand- 
ing. From here he returned to his native town and 
practiced his profession in Kennebunkport for fifteen 
years, when he came to Bangor to take the practice 
of Dr. J. H. Payne. For forty-four years he con- 
tinued in the work of his profession at this city. 
Dr. Jeffards was admitted to the American Institu- 
tive of Homeopathy in 1859 and was a senator in 
the organization at the time of his death. He was 
also a member of the Maine Homeopathic Associa- 
tion, of the Harvard Club of Bangor, and of the 
Alpha Delta Phi fraternity. He was a deacon of the 
Central Congregational Church, with which he has 
been closely identified during his residence there. 
Though never actively engaged in politics, his polit- 
ical sympathies have always been with the Republi- 
can party. While at Kennebunkport he was town 
treasurer for fifteen years, town physician for ten 
years, and member of the board of health for ten 
years. Respected and honored always as a physician 
and a man, his death will be mourned by a large 
number of former friends.

Colby 5, Bowdoin 2. 

Bowdoin was defeated by Colby last Saturday 
by the score 5 — 2 in a game that was anything but 
well contested. It was simply a play on a "Comedy 
of Errors" from a Bowdoin standpoint. 

Coombs was very effective, his curves proving 
an unsolvable puzzle to the visiting team. Cox put 
up a steady and entirely satisfactory game, giving 
but two bases on balls and allowingbut five hits. He 
was calm in his actions and did not go to pieces at 
any time. Bowdoin was lamentably weak at the 
bat, securing but one single. Hodgson played the 
best game for Bowdoin in the field, accepting his 
nine chances without an error, while Tilton excelled 
for Colby. Bowdoin'.s runs were due to an error 
by Dunn coupled with a single by Wiggin in the 
seventh and errors by Pugsley and Wiley in the 
ninth. Colby won the game on errors by Clarke 
and Wiggin in the first inning, bunching hits and 
an error by White in the second and by bunching 
hits again in the seventh inning. The game opened 
with White at the bat for Bowdoin. He flied out 
to Dunn. Stone followed and went out on Coombs' 
assist. Clark retired the side by flying out to 
Leighton. Colby came up with Cowing at the bat. 
He knocked the ball to right field which Clarke 
misjudged and before the latter could recover it 
Cowing was safe at second. Coombs followed and 
was out on a fly to Clarke. Wiley struck out and 
Pugsley was safe at first on Wiggin's error. Cow- 
ing scored in the meantime. Craig retired the side 
on a fly to Clarke. 

In the second Cox went out on Tilton's assist. 
Wiggin struck out and Hodgson received a free pass 
to first. Oakes flied out to Wiley. For Colby, 
Tilton went out on Cox's assist. Dunn singled and 
scored on Leighton's timely hit. Pile went out on 
Stone's assist. Cowing hit to White who threw 
over Wiggin's head and Leighton scored. Coombs 
went out on Hodgson's assist. No further scoring 
was done on either side until the seventh inning. 
Stone, the first man up for Bowdoin, flied out to 
Pugsley and Clarke followed with a beautiful line 
drive, which Dunn could not hold. Cox struck out 
and Wiggin singled scoring Glarke. Hodgson 
retired the side by striking out. For Colby, Pile 
reached first on Stone's failure to catch the third 
strike. Cowing reached first on a fielders' option. 
Pile going out at second on Cox's assist. Coombs 
smashed out a beautiful two-bagger and Cowing 
scored. Wiley struck out and Pugsley singled scor- 
ing Coombs. Craig reached first on fielders' option 
but Pugsley was thrown out on Stone's assist, thus 
retiring the side. 

Neither side scored in the eighth. In the ninth 
Stone went out on Coombs' assist. Clarke reached 
second on Pugsley's error. Cox went out on Til- 
ton's assist. Wiggin reached first on Wiley's error. 



Wiggin started for second and in Coombs' vain 
attempt to catch him Clarke scored. Hodgson 
struck out, thus ending the game.

Bowdoin i, Bates o. 



Bowdoin defeated Bates for the second time this 
year, on Garcelon Field, Memorial Day, in one of 
the most interesting and exciting games seen in this 
State for a number of years. About nine hundred 
Bowdoin and Bates supporters were in attendance 
and had the weather been more favorable this num- 
ber would have been doubled. The game was replete 
with snappy plays and the result was never 
certain until the last man was out in the 
ninth inning. Time and again the crowd of spec- 
tators broke into spontaneous applause, and 
the adherents of either side rent the air with cheer 
after cheer. Cox did the twirling for Bowdoin and 
a better and steadier performance in the box has 
seldom been seen on a diamond. He had his oppo- 
nents entirely at his mercy, allowing only twenty- 
nine men to face him during the nine innings of the 
play. Johnson, a Freshman, was in the box for

Bates, and proved himself to be a comer. All 
through the game, possibly with the exception of 
the eighth inning, he showed good headwork, espe- 
cially in the first inning when after giving two bases 
on balls he struck out three of Bowdoin's heaviest 
batters. The features of the game were Clarke's 
opportune three-bagger. White's phenomenal double 
play and Bower's catch of a difficult foul fly in the 
crowd. 

White, the first man up for Bowdoin, drew a base 
on balls. Stone followed and received a similar 
gift. Clarke came to the bat and it looked as though 
Johnson was going to meet his Waterloo in this 
inning, but not so. Clarke struck out. But what 
was all the more remarkable Cox and Wiggin 
struck out and the side was retired. Bowman, the 
first man up for Bates went out to Hodgson. Aus- 
tin followed and was thrown out on Cox's assist. 
Kendall drew a base on balls and Wood sent up a 
foul fly to Stone. Both sides went out in succession 
in the second. Bowdoin went out in order in her 
half of the third. For Bates, Doe drew a base on 
balls. Johnson flied out to Hodgson. Bowman hit 
a hard one toward second base which looked like 
a hit but by remarkably fast work White caught it, 
touched second base and threw to first for a double 
play. No scoring was done until the eighth inning. 
White, the first man up, flied out to Rogers. Stone 
knocked a high fly which Bowers caught in the 
crowd. It looked now as though neither side was 
going to score but Clarke met the ball fairly for 
three bases. With Clarke on third and Cox at the 
bat things looked rather dubious for Johnson. The 
latter unwisely decided to give Cox his base on 
balls for Bowman was not tall enough to reach the 
fourth ball and Clarke scored. Wiggin singled and 
Hodgson struck out, retiring the side and putting 
an end to the scoring. The score : 

Bowdoin.

Bowdoin 2d 15, Cony High 6. 
The second team defeated the Cony High School 
Team on Whittier Field, Wednesday afternoon, by 
the score 15 — 7. The latter team started out with 
a rush, but after the first inning the result was 
never in doubt. Lewis pitched a creditable game 
for the second team. 



Dekes 12, Theta Deltas ii. 
The Dekes won from the Theta Delts in a closely 
contested game last Friday by a score of 12 to 11. 
The game was well played and very even and inter- 
esting throughout. 



Bowdoin 2d 24, Rockland High School 4. 

The second team administered a crushing defeat 
to the Rockland High School team, on the latter's 
grounds. Memorial Day. Bowdoin scored eleven 
runs in the first inning, clinching the game there. 
Doherty pitched a good game and was backed up 
in gilt-edged style by the team. 



REMAINING GAMES. 



Bowdoin has three more games scheduled for 
this season, one with Harvard to-day, at Cambridge ; 
Brown to-morrow, at Providence, and Amherst next 
Friday, at Whittier Field. With Cox in the box 
Bowdoin ought to make a good showing against 
Harvard. The game with Brown to-morrow is very 
uncertain, for the latter team has proved itself very 
erratic this year ; one day putting up a fine exhibi- 
tion and the next day a poor one. With any kind 
of luck Bowdoin ought to win this game. Ivy Day 
Bowdoin ends its season by playing Amherst at 
Whittier Field. This is the first time that an 
Amherst base-ball team has ever played in Bruns- 
wick. Judging from the playing of both teams thus 
far this year Bowdoin ought to end the season with 
a victory. 



INTERSCHOLASTIC MEET. 

In the Interscholastic Meet last Saturday, West- 
brook Seminary won with 47 points, Brewer was 
second with 2^. and Kent's Hill had 22, Hebron 12,

FOOT-BALL FINANCES. 

At a meeting of the Athletic Council, May 25, 
Manager Oakes presented this second report. 
Unpaid subscriptions at the end of season, $384 00 
Since collected, 293 00 



Now uncollected. 
Paid to Coach. 
Paid small bills. 
Cash on hand, 


s above, 


$91 00 

$87 00

Unpaid bill for supplies. 
Less cash, 


$293 00 

$446 87 

202 35 



Net debt at this date, $244 52 

The Council authorizes this additional statement : 
The expenses of the last foot-ball season 
exceeded the amount received from games and 
undergraduate subscriptions by $597.52, as follows: 
Alumni subscriptions for extra coaching, $318 00 
Voted by the Council for same purpose, 35 00 

Debt at this date, 244 52 



$597 52 
The Council voted to pay from the treasury the 
sum of $153.52 on account of the above unpaid bill, 
reducing the debt to the amount of uncollected sub- 
scriptions, namely, $91. 

The small balance in the treasury has thus been 
heavily drawn upon in order to meet some unusual 



expenses which seemed necessary for our best foot- 
ball interests. Students who have not paid their 
subscriptions are urged to meet their obligations 
honorably, in order that our credit may not be 
impaired or the next management in any way 
embarrassed. 



ATHLETIC COUNCIL MEETING. 

At a recent meeting of the Athletic Coun- 
cil it was voted to recommend that new med- 
ical students shall not be eligible to represent 
the college in foot-ball unless registered by 
November I. 

At a meeting of the Council on Ma)' 25 it 
was voted to recommend changing the article 
on granting Track "B's" so that a man win- 
ning first or second place in the Maine Meet 
be granted a "B." 

The following nominations were made : 
For base-ball manager, A. O. Putnam, G. C. 
Soule; alternate, C. C. Shaw. For assistant 
base-ball manager, H. E. Wilson, L. D. Min- 
cher ; alternate, A. J. Voorhees. For track 
manager, D. B. Andrews, R. G. Webber; 
alternate, G. Parcher ; for assistant track man- 
ager, R. E. Sawyer, D. Sargent ; alternate, J. 
W. Leydon. For tennis manager, H. S. Stet- 
son, P. F. Chapman ; alternate, P. R. 
Andrews. 

NOTE TO FIRST RECOMMENDATION. 
In Bowdoin as in the other Maine colleges new 
men have to be registered by October 15, in order 
to be eligible for the 'varsity eleven. Next fall the 
Medical School opens on October 20 and by this 
recommendation new students are given an oppor- 
tunity to make the team. 

NOTE TO SECOND RECOMMENDATION. 
At present it is necessary for a man to win a 
first or a second at the Maine Meet and also make 
the Worcester Team in order to win a Track 
"B." The winning of a point at Worcester entitles 
a man to a "B ;" also men running on a winning 
team at the B. A. A. Meet are entitled to Track 



MASS-MEETING. 
There will be a mass-meeting Monday 
evening at 7 o'clock in Memorial Hall for the 
purpose of electing officers for next year and 
voting on the recommendations proposed by 
the Athletic Council at a recent meeting. 
The officers to be elected are : President of 
Athletic Association ; undergraduate members 
of the Athletic Council ; Manager and Assist- 
ant Manager of Base-Ball Team; Manager 
and Assistant Manager of Track Team and 
Manager of the Tennis Team. Ever)' under-

„. . At the chapel exercises last 

A Fitting f 

n , . Sunday afternoon, it was 

Observance of , , , . . 

. . suggested that Memorial 

Memorial Sunday. „ , _ . . . , , 

Sunday at Bowdoin should 

be observed by some definite service appro- 
priate to the occasion. The speaker remarked 
that so simple an exercise as the reading of 
the names of the men that are engraved on the 
tablets in Memorial Hall would be a most 
fitting and appropriate observance of Memo- 
rial Sunday. The Orient heartily endorses 
this suggestion. In these days when Memo- 
rial Day and its remembrances are growing 
to mean more and more to the American 
people — when the last of that great army of 
citizen soldiers who a generation ago went to 
the front in the spring-time of life are fast 
being laid at rest — it seems particularly appro- 
priate that the college should make some 



recognition of the times. We have a splendid 
building erected to the memory of these men 
who enlisted from the college, and whose 
memory is one of the college's richest herit- 
ages. To have these names read in the quiet 
afternoon hours of Memorial Sunday to the 
young men who come to Bowdoin as the years 
go by, would be one of the most beautiful 
exercises of the college year, and would be a 
fitting" tribute to Bowdoin's roll of honor. 



Golf. 



As the year draws to a 
close, the Orient takes 
the liberty to look ahead and make certain sug- 
gestions for next year. One thing that we 
would urge is the stimulation of interest in 
golf. Probably very few undergraduates 
know that Bowdoin is a member of the N. E. 
I. G. A. She is, nevertheless, and she 
should make a brave endeavor to do her best 
at the tournaments of this association. There 
are good golf players among us, and there is 
a good course of links in the vicinity. With 
such a combination Bowdoin ought to evolve 
a good showing at the tournaments. But she 
cannot do it unless a livelier interest is taken 
in this branch of athletics than has been, here- 
tofore. A good way to arouse the latent spirit 
would be, perhaps, to arrange for a college 
golf tournament next fall. Surely such a 
plan is not unfeasible and it would be fraught 
with good results. 



Coach Lathrop 
Here During 
Foot=Ball Season. 



There has been considera- 
ble talk of late about hav- 
ing Coach Lathrop here 
during the; foot-ball sea- 
son. Mr. Lathrop has been interviewed and 
has said that he would come providing the 
contract was made on or before June II, 
as other positions are awaiting him. Mr. 
Lathrop has had much experience at Harvard 
in foot-ball training and we know that he is 
an invaluable man. To have Coach Lathrop 
with us for six weeks during the fall would 
Lie of inestimable value to both the foot-ball 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



61 



and track teams. Owing to the heavy 
expenses of the last foot-ball season this will 
be impossible unless undergraduates will agree 
to increase their subscriptions sufficiently to 
meet this extra expense. 



A Correction. 



In the last issue of the 
Orient there appeared a 
criticism of the track management for not 
taking Small to Worcester. We have learned 
that the management is not to blame for not 
taking Small on the trip, but that the latter 
could not go on account of his studies in the 
Medical School. 



Dormitory Rooms. 



The 



sense of 



unit)-- between the medical 
and regular departments of the college has 
been noted before in these columns and as 
another increase here comes the news that 
next year the medical students will have the 
privilege of drawing for college rooms on 
equal footing with the regular students. In 
this connection it might also be noted that the 
prices of the rooms are to be changed some- 
what, those on the first floor being made con- 
siderably lower. 



The Orient publishes in 
Fund for Proposed another column a list of 
Hawthorne Statue, those who have subscribed 

toward the erection of the 
proposed Hawthorne statue and in vain do we 
look for the name of an undergraduate who 
has done likewise. It is the duty of the stu- 
dents in this college to give toward this wor- 
thy fund as well as the alumni, for the statue 
is not intended to be a mere gift of the alumni 
but a representation of the love and pride that 
the undergraduates as well as the graduates 
feel in this man. We do not expect every man 
in college to subscribe one hundred dollars or 
any fixed amount, but we do expect the stu- 
dents to give according to their means. All 
subscriptions must be paid to Professor John- 
son before commencement. We hope that in 



the next issue of this paper, we may be able 
to publish a list that will include the names of 
several undergraduates. 



Holiday. 



Although the Faculty have 
been very generous in 
granting Saturdays to the students for holi- 
days, there still seems a chance and a very 
favorable chance for another holiday. We 
refer to the Saturday of the Interscholastic 
Meet. On this day there are always a large 
number of sub-Freshmen about college and 
those who are doing the entertaining do not 
feel like taking them to recitations. Last Sat- 
urday adjourns were granted from ten o'clock 
but we urge that the whole forenoon be 
granted. The students would appreciate the 
time and no doubt use it to good advantage. 

OFFICIAL NOTICES. 



It is the intention of the foot-ball manager 
to get out fancy posters, next fall, which may 
be sold to students and friends of the college 
for a small sum. The entire student body is 
requested to submit drawings for which a suit- 
able recompense will be given. All drawings 
must be handed in before June 15. 

Grand stand seats for the Amherst-Bow- 
doin game Ivy Day will go on sale at Shaw's 
Tuesday morning at 8 o'clock. 



MEDICAL SCHOOL'S NEW PHYSI- 
OLOGY LABORATORY. 

All the members and friends of the col- 
lege and in particular those connected with the 
Maine Medical School will be glad to hear 
that this department is to have a finely 
equipped laboratory for the special use of the 
department of physiology. This is to be built 
in the medical building where the old cabinet 
formerly was. The laboratory will be com- 
pleted in the finest manner possible at a cost 
of about fifteen hundred dollars. By this new 
addition the laboratory facilities for the study 
of medicine at Bowdoin will be surpassed by 
no institution in the country.

NEW ATTENDANCE REGULATIONS. 

Note. — These regulations were printed in the 
last issue of the Orient and several additional 
copies were ordered by the Faculty for distribution, 
but owing to a misunderstanding these copies were 
not procured and so the regulations appear in this 
issue. 

1. The college year to begin and close on dates 
as at present established. 

2. That the year be divided into two semesters, 
or terms of equal length ; the first to close on or 
near the end of the first week in February ; the sec- 
ond, on the Wednesday preceding commencement 
day. 

3. That the examinations of the first semester 
occupy the eight or more days at the close of the 
first term. 

4. That the second semester begin on the day 
following the last day scheduled for the examina- 
tions of the first semester. 

5. That the Easter vacation and the Christmas 
vacation stand as at present. 

6. That Thanksgiving Day be granted as a holi- 
day only. 

7. That the examination of the second semester 
close on the Thursday immediately preceding com- 
mencement week. 

8. That Ivy Day be appointed for the Friday 
preceding commencement week. 

9. That commencement week stand as at pres- 
ent ; also, the examinations for admission to college. 



CHANGES IN REGULATIONS CONCERNING 
ABSENCE FROM COLLEGE EXERCISES. 

Note. All regulations concerning registration 
and the presenting of excuses for absence remain as 
at present, viz. : each student is required to register 
on the first day of each semester; and students must 
present all petitions for excuse for absences from 
chapel or from lectures and recitations to the class 
officer for his approval and deposit the same at the 
Registrar's office. 

CHANGES. 

1. On and after September 20, 1904, the present 
system of granting 6 for attendance rank will be 
discontinued, and 

2. In place of this, each student will be allowed 
five unexcused absences in each course in any semes- 
ter, but under the following conditions. 

3. All absences from college exercises other 
than chapel and required gymnasium which are 
incurred during the three days at the opening and 
at the close of a semester, or during the three days 
immediately preceding and following all holidays 
and vacation, will count double. 

4. Students will be excused, as at present, for 
the following causes: (a) when at work earning 
money to defray college expenses; (b) when repre- 
senting any of the recognized college associations 
and organizations; (c) when voting; (d) when 
necessarily absent on account of family bereavement ; 
(e) when attending the wedding of a near relative. 

5. Students will be excused on account of illness 



only when the maximum number of unexcused 
absences has been reached ; and in such cases only 
on presentation of a physician's certificate. 

6. Students will be conditioned in any or all 
courses in which they have incurred more than the 
allowed number of unexcused absences. 

7. Conditions thus incurred will be made up in 
accordance with the regulations of the college gov- 
erning such cases. 

It is possible that some' minor changes may be 
made in the above regulations before the end of the 
present term, but these outline the general policy of 
attendance regulations to be in force next year.

MEETING OF THE VISITING COM- 
MITTEE. 

Last week Thursday the visiting commit- 
tee from the boards made its annual trip to 
the college. The committee, composed of 
Messrs. Brown, Cole, E. U. Curtis. Lewis, and 
Cary, spent the day in a tour of inspection

Thursday evening the board held its annual 
meeting with the Faculty and officers of the 
college. Many matters were discussed, prin- 
cipally in relation to the college rooms. It 
was voted to throw open the use of the dormi- 
tories to the medical students next year and 
allow them to draw for rooms on equal terms 
with the regular students. This was the only 
important matter on which definite action was 
taken but a change which will have the hearty

approval of all as showing another step 
towards the greater union of the two depart- 
ments of the collesre. 



1905 BUGLE. 

The Bugle will go on sale Ivy Day. All 
assessments must be paid in by June 5 in order 
that the manager may meet his bills. The 
board of editors have worked hard and faith- 
fully to make the Bugle a success and the 
class is morally obliged to stand behind them 
in order that it may be a financial success. 



COMMENCEMENT SPEAKERS. 
The commencement speakers have been 
announced, and are as follows : John Merrill 
Bridgham, Myrton Andrew Bryant, Philip 
Maclean Clarke, Marshall Perley Cram, Wil- 
liam Edward Lunt, Arthur Carlton Shorey. 



"CASE OF SARDINES," BY CLEAVES, 
'OS- 

A very attractive new book is "A Case of 
Sardines," by Charles Poole Cleaves, Bow- 
doin, '05. It is published in a pleasing gray 
cover, with illustrations by Edith Brand, and 
contains 320 pages. The publishers are The 
Pilgrim Press, Boston and Chicago. 

The story portrays the summer experience 
of a young city physician who seeks recreation 
at Echo Bluffs, a sardine-packing town on the 
Maine coast. It pictures the striking feat- 
ures of a unique industry, the lights, shadows 
and humor of the life of the workers, and 
various phases of life on the Maine coast. 
The Orient extends congratulations to Mr. 
Cleaves on the success of his work.

IRelioious Botes. 

The pulpit of the Church on the Hill was 
occupied last Sunday morning and evening 
by Cleaves, '05. 

Last week the Y. M. C. A. meeting was 
led by Cleaves, '05, and the subject was 
"Christ's Method of Meeting Doubt." 

Last night the weekly devotional meeting 
was given over to the Bible Study department 
for an interesting meeting to show the bene- 
fits of Bible study. 

It is interesting to note that at West Point 
twenty-five Bible classes are held each week 
with a weekly attendance of over 200. 
Prayer-meetings held twice a week draw 100 
men each evening. 

The newly elected State secretary of the 
Y. M. C. A. arrived in Portland this week to 
look over the work for next year. James M. 
Dudley has just come from Brooklyn, N. Y., 
where he has been very successful in establish- 
ing a Y. M. C. A. for the working men of the 
street railways. He has had wide experience 
in association work and some of his time in 
Maine next year will be given to college work. 

The weekly devotional meeting of the local 
association was well attended in spite of the 
storm. Boody, '06, was the leader, and the 
subject was, "'Life Abundant." A follower 
of Christ lives a broad instead of a narrow 
life ; a life for others instead of for selfish 
interests, and has opened to him a whole new 
world of spiritual interests. This was the 
purpose of Christ's earthly life. 

The last meeting of the year of the Fresh- 
man Bible Course was held in the Association 
rooms Sunday afternoon. The attendance at 
this class throughout the year has been 
remarkably good and twenty-one weekly meet- 
ings have been held. Every man who has 
taken the course is in favor of its continuance 
next year and it is expected that several classes 
will be started next fall.

VEREIN BUMMEL. 

It was a merry party of Deutschers that boarded 
teams for the Gurnet last Tuesday afternoon to hold 
their last meeting of the year. Indeed, this was to 
be a gala occasion and the boys decided to have a 
game of base-ball soon after their arrival. None of 
the enthusiastic crowd ( ?) of fans that turned out 
to witness the ball game between these German 
students, will ever regret the loss of their time, for 
the contest was a memorable one. In fact, it is

rumored that "Lajoie" Hermes, "Jimmie Collins" 
Lewis and "Cy Young" Campbell are now dodging 
offers of the "Big League" teams for their services. 
The final score was not given out and the error col- 
umn had not been added up when this paper went 
to press. The features of the game were the hit- 
ting of Grant and the fielding of Benson. After the 
game the players repaired to the dining-room where 
a bountiful spread awaited them. Impromptu 
speeches and the singing of German songs occupied 
the rest of the evening. The happy party 
returned home at a late hour. 



CLASS OF 1878 GATES. 



The Class of '78 memorial gates now are com- 
pleted. The new structure is somewhat after the 
design of those erected by the Class of '75 and. fills 
a long-felt want in our college grounds. The work 
while probably not so expensive and elaborate as the 
'75 gates, is very artistic and shows off to good 
advantage at the northern entrance to the grounds. 
The four pillars of alternating dark and light bricks 
are surmounted with sandstone caps and between the 
two middle pillars is an iron arch with the college 
seal. 

Appropriate designs mark the front of the pillars. 

This last addition to the campus is a beautiful 
and fitting tribute by the class to the college. 



SUMMER LIBRARY SCHOOL. 

A plan is being discussed of organizing a 
summer school for the librarians of the State 
of Maine this year. State Librarian L. D. 
Carver is enthusiastic over the idea, and Prof. 
Little has signified his willingness to assist in 
making the school a success and has agreed to 
give two addresses. He has also informed 
Mr. Carver that, if it is the desire of those who 
make the arrangements, the school could be 
held in the Hubbard Library, lasting probably 
two weeks, will be held either the last of July 
or the first of August. The plans are at pres- 
ent incomplete, as no definite action will be 
taken until assurances of co-operation from a 
sufficient number of the librarians in the State 
have been received. 



Professor Mitchell made a visit to Kent's 
Hill Thursday to examine its courses of study 
in regard to its certificate being accepted by 
the New England Preparatory School Certi- 
ficate Board. 



SOPHOMORE BANQUET. 

The Sophomores held a very pleasant banquet at 
the Gurnet last night. About forty of the class 
enjoyed the sail down New Meadows River from 
the Inn and were served a shore dinner. Ralph G.

toasts were responded to :

The new attendance regulations have been the 
principal matter for discussion this last week. 
Many and varied are the comments. 

Many of the fraternities held "feeds" Saturday 
evening in honor of the visitors of the out-of-town 
track teams. The members from the various schools 
stayed over until Sunday, and some until Monday. 

Mr. G. R. Lee of the Portland Athletic Club, 
found many old friends at the meet Saturday. This 
is the eleventh season that he has filled the office of 
referee to the entire satisfaction of all contestants. 

The Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity played a 
most exciting game of base-ball with theTheta Delta 
Chi fraternity on the old delta Friday afternoon. 
The game resulted in victory for the "Dekes" by a 
score of 12 to 11. 

Last Thursday morning Professor Robinson 
excused his mineralogy class from laboratory work 
and took the boys for a walk to the Topsham quar- 
ries. , Upon returning to town Professor Robinson 
treated the class to refreshments. 

On the arrival of the band from Bath Monday 
evening, an impromptu procession was formed 
which marched around the campus to the tune of 
"Phi Chi." A bonfire was built in front of North 
Appleton about which the crowds gathered and the 
band played until a late hour.

train stopped for a ten-minute wait. 

The members of the Delta Kappa Epsilon frater- 
nity held a track meet on the Whittier Field last 
Thursday afternoon. It is understood that no 
records were broken. The most exciting contest of 
the afternoon was the pole vault, the winner clear- 
ing the bar at 4! 4 feet. The members of the fra- 
ternity dined at the Inn in the evening at the 
expense of the losers.

IVY DAY EXERCISES. 



Friday, June 10, was observed as Ivy Day 
and never in the thirty-eight years since this 
beautiful custom was instituted at Bowdoin, 
have all the ceremonies and exercises of the 
day passed off more pleasantly and success- 
fully. At 2.30 the class marched, lockstep, to 
the stage of Memorial Hall, headed by their 
marshal, W. B. Webb, to the sweet music by 
Pullen's Orchestra. The hall was tastefully 
decorated with palms while large numerals of 
crimson and gray announced that this was 
1905's gala day. The exercises were opened 
by a thoughtful, soul-felt prayer by P. K. 
Greene. After a short interval which the 
orchestra pleasantly whiled away with charm- 
ing music, E. L. Harvey delivered the oration 
which may be found in another part of this 
issue. The oration dealt optimistically with 
a coming political era of nearer and more 
up-to-date issues in which the rising genera- 
tion of college men ought to predominate and 
win the laurels of fame, honor and true great- 
ness by a vigorous battle for the ideals imbued 
within them. The oration showed a deep 
insight into the average college man, a close 
observation and a good deal of sound philoso- 
phy. It was clothed with some pretty humor 
which the audience failed to appreciate. It 
was by far one of the best things .of the after- 
noon. F. K. Ryan next delivered the poem 
teeming with classic allusions. He touched 
very tenderly and sweetly upon the sad death 
of Philip Fessenden. Then came the pre- 
sentations, the responses to which were filled 
with wit and humor. J. N. Emery, as repre- 
sentative of class "tough," received a plug of 
tobacco. He responded with a telling speech 
scoring some very good hits upon many of his 
classmates and reciting a bit of original verse 
which took the audience by storm. W. T. 
Henderson received a megaphone to aid him 
if his lamb-like voice should fail. Henderson 
responded in that lamb-like voice, we all know 
so well, seeing the opportunity to get even 
with some of his friends. S. H. Pinkham 
received a snake upon which he was requested 



to use his charming arts hereafter instead of 
upon the young ladies in the vicinity. He 
very nearly charmed the audience with his 
reply. After this an easy chair was presented 
to R. K. Eaton in which he might rest after 
his energetic plugging. Mr. Eaton thanked 
the president very heartily for his ( chair) ity. 
Ralph Cushing was given a Bible to aid him 
in his work of reforming the college. Cush- 
ing was very grateful to be thus recognized 
as official pious man as he had recently felt the 
rivalry of Cleaves and Brimijoin. The last of 
the presentations was the wooden spoon to Mr. 
Philoon, the popular man of the class. Surely 
no better ending could have closed the exer- 
cises in the hall. The class now marched to 
the northeast corner of Hubbard Hall, 
where the Ivy was planted and the Ode sung. 



ORATION. 

POLITICS AND THE UNDERGRADUATE. 
By E. L. Harvey. 

There alwa\'S comes a time in the life of every 
man, when he feels himself to be the master of the 
situation ; and when he feels stirring within him the 
spirit and power for great accomplishment. This 
comes to the pedagogue when, after a particularly 
arduous day, he holds fondly in one hand the 
trousers of the American small boy and in the other 
a strong birch whip. 

The business man feels it when, at the end of 
the year, he adds up his balance, and finds that he 
will be able to add two stories to his emporium and 
establish a long-desired new department. The 
broker experiences the same feeling when an invest- 
ment in water and good intentions, long despaired 
of, suddenly begins to yield 12 per cent. The con- 
testant in the prize ring exults after this fashion as 
he girds up his loins and proudly steps into the 
saw-dust arena, ready for the fray. All people in 
all phases of human activity have this sensation 
come to them at some time or other in their exist- 
ence. It seems to spring from an inspired source. 

The college undergraduate is no exception to 
this rule. Although, on the outside, he sometimes 
appears to be a strange mixture of undiscovered 
types of being, he is still human. He experiences 
the same feelings, and bends to inclination in the 
same manner as the rest of mankind. It is diffi- 
cult to say exactly in what stage of his evolution 
and at what point in that stage, this seed of power 
first sprouts in the breast of the average collegian. 
But after uncompromising and unflinching observa- 



68 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



tion, I think one would fix the point as toward the 
end of the third, or Junior year, of his college 
career. As I have already said, the college under- 
graduate is a combination of many varied charac- 
teristics. This is especially true of him when he 
has reached the transition stage. So in order that 
no member of the Class of 1905 may feel slighted, 
it might be well to mention some of the different 
ways in which this feeling of power manifests itself. 

There is one man who, after a soulful connec- 
tion with the college Y. M. C. A., assures himself 
that he must either enter the cannibal-devastated 
field of missionaries, or turn himself loose on the 
mismanaged work of a college settlement. There 
is the poet. He is neither a spring poet, a winter 
poet, nor a cozy corner poet. He is in an entirely 
separate catogry of his own — that of the Pegasus 
cnllegii. There is the college journalist. His 
idealistic inspiration may reach towards the work 
of Horace Greeley, the father of the New York 
Tribune, the achievements of Mr. William Ran- 
dolph Hearst, the godfather of Happy Hooligan, and 
Alphonse and Gaston, or last but not least, there is 
the social and political reformer. Hot from the 
scholastic perusal of the tenets and principles of 
Tohn Stuart Mill, Ricardo, Rousseau, Yorke, Alex. 
Hamilton and Daniel Webster, come to him breaths 
that are inspiring, moving, and above all, interest- 
ing and fascinating. This last is the secret of the 
whole phenomenon. The American college man is 
alive and strong. He cannot help being gripped 
with the firm grasp of interest, when he enters the 
field of social and political economy and first meets 
the wizard of the science that is politics. It follows 
from the natural order of things, and from the 
natural tendency of college spirit and enthusiasm 
that this experience makes of the undergraduate a 
modern Socrates. As George Ade has aptly said, 
"Each feels himself to be the understudy of Solo- 
mon." 

Theodore Roosevelt has told us that on the 
shoulders of the college men of our country rests 
the salvation and success of our political policy and 
existence. This bids us give this political mono- 
mania and enthusiam for social reform full con- 
sideration and attention. What though the result 
at the start is thorough socialism or moderate anar- 
chy? Here is our future promise and hope. 

When a man enters college, his political sympa- 
thies are generally the same as those of his father 
or some distant uncle, who has made himself prom- 
inent by airing the same. As time passes, they may 
change — and they may not. He will possibly read 
the newspapers. But it is a fact too deplorable to 
be true, that if he does, it will be to turn from the 
political discussions of the first page, past the edi- 
torial, to the sporting page or the dissertations of 
the society editor. Politics, to him, are things very 
sure and stable, but not particularly real. If he is 
approached on any political subject, he will have 
opinions enough ; O ! yes, and to spare. But they 
will seem to lack that stamp of originality and life, 
which is the mark of individual thought. Then, in 
his progress from course to course, he comes more 
and more upon things dealing with political ques- 
tions, which may hold some interest for him. These 
discoveries are bound to attract him. As he becomes 
more interested, the field enlarges, and, uncon- 
sciously to himself, there is planted the seed of indi- 



vidual thought and opinion formation. But here 
our future statesman must be on his guard. For, 
although one cannot accuse professors of infusing 
too much personal conviction into lectures, never- 
theless, he must guard against any suspicion or trace 
of phonographic wisdom. 

As the political development of the undergrad- 
uate progresses, what direction does it take, will be 
the question of the practical mind. Is he republi- 
can, democratic, socialistic, populistic or mug- 
wumpian? We hope that he is in a degree demo- 
cratic, and thoroughly republican. But we fear 
that he is a good deal of a mugwump. And is it 
strange that he is? In this day of 20th century 
topsyturveyness, who can help wondering if the 
good old Elephant and Donkey are not growing old 
in efficiency, and do not need to be replaced by 
surer footed and fleeter quadrupeds? They have 
borne the white man's burden long and well. They 
have earned a rest. And will they not get it 
through the agency of the present generation of col- 
lege men? 

Shakespeare said. "If 'twere well 'twere done, 
'twere well 'twere done quickly." No one doubts 
that 'twere well 'twere done. As Benjamin Frank- 
lin said. "The times are ripe." Will party strife,, 
waged on the lines of the protective tariff, ever 
solve the negro problem? Can gold-democrats and 
free-silverites be depended upon to fight out the 
question of trust regulation? The chances are 16 
to I against it. Will the dissentors to our Pension 
Laws, and the advocates of postal and civil service 
reform ever put this country on a firm commercial 
basis, and settle the tariff question? Judging from 
past experience, we may, with the greatest certainty, 
answer in the negative. Our hope lies in the 
future, in the present generation of young men 
who are now absorbing political wisdom and devel- 
oping into statesmen, in the classic halls of our col- 
leges and universities. 

" A great part of the blame for the condition of 
our latter day politics lies at the door of our Solo- 
mons, themselves. While we must clearly except 
from this discussion the small minority of honest, 
well-trained, level-headed men engaged in public 
affairs to-day, the majority are what the poetry of 
John Hay would call "ornery." 

There is the man in Congress, who is put there 
by the party machine of his state. There are no 
especially redeeming features about him, except that 
he owns a copper mine, or an "infant industry," 
the surplus of which he is willing to lose to Wash- 
ington's society leaders at "bridge." There is the 
high-flown theorist, whose star-anchored wagon 
never as much as grazes the dome of the capitol 
during his entire term of office. There is the man 
from the South, with his breast, even now, burning 
with sedition and unrest. He is probably the son 
of one of those good old Confederates, who held 
their seats in the Legislatures of the South, during 
the reconstruction period, decked in their old blood- 
stained uniforms and hurled fiery darts at the gov- 
ernment they were in duty bound to support. There 
is the man from the West, who sought the election, 
impelled chiefly by the goadings of an ambitious 
wife. There is the hard-headed, bull-dog-jawed 
citizen from the North. South, East and West, who 
is famous for the attributes of never being willing 
to compromise. Besides the objectionable features 



BOWDOIN ORIENT.

of their chief characteristics, all these men are 
elected on strict party lines. They are party men, 
and they must fight the party fight. This also is 
only too true of the small class of men whom I 
have excepted from this category. 

Just realize that this is the gallery of the proto- 
types of the majority of our present day statesmen. 
Will it not, in the future, be changed from this 
panorama of caricatures to a collection representing 
earnest, active, honest, practical, well-trained, 
evenly-balanced, modern college men? As a class 
they have all that should recommend them. They 
are honest ; for a college-man is peculiarly bound to 
keep a high ideal, and to be true to it. It is the nat- 
ural outgrowth of his college training. They are 
thoroughly prepared for the work. They have 
studied politics as a doctor studies medicine. They 
are trained in the difference between Hamilton's 
Federalist and Plato's Republic. But in spite of all 
this, the arms of the party octopus would be about 
them. The coils must be severed. This American 
plebiscite must be done away with. 

The college man is by no means a radical pro- 
tectionist, and at the same time, he will not see our 
industrial progress checked by exterminating legis- 
lation directed at our, so-called, trusts. He is a 
thorough democrat, in the true meaning of the 
word, but he, also, is enough of a socialist to 
believe in governmental operation of certain enter- 
prises. , He is a firm believer in a strong central 
government, but he is not an upholder of bureau- 
cracy, and he maintains that the States should have 
extended control over taxation along various lines. 
His platform is full of such planks as these, which 
would never match with those of the structures of 
any of our parties of to-day. To them these doc- 
trines would seem paradoxical. And it is for this 
reason that the college undergraduate is a man 
without a party. He cannot, conscientiously, join 
the following of either banner. 

Look at the Democratic party of to-day. It has 
collected together, to form its platform, a pile of 
planks more or less in a condition of decay — relics 
of Bryanism, populism, anarchy, and radicalism in 
everything. The general public is wondering 
where a candidate will be procured to stand on 
this platform — and advocate its principles with any 
degree of sincerity. As Senator Depew with his 
ever-ready wit put it, "He will have to be the 
product of an incubator." The status of the Repub- 
lican party is little better. Extreme protection has 
for years been the stone of its corner. And we 
can but interpret the recent zealous attempts to 
enforce the too-wise Sherman Anti-Trust Law 
as an ill-timed and feeble endeavor to shift the 
position of the party to some indefinite and, as yet, 
obscure new ground. 

Under these conditions, what is to be done? 
Will the young man of college-training stand by 
and wisely shake his head? Will he enter other 
fields of activity with the calm observation that pol- 
itics are too much for him ? Will he weakly say he 
■can't help it, and hypocritically vote a ticket he 
doesn't believe in? Or will he do his duty? The 
assumption and exercise of the sovereignty of citizen- 
ship is the grandest possession of the American. He 
knows it and is proud of it. But what is he to do? 
You will say that it is as impossible to form a new 
political party as it is for a camel to pass through 
the eye of a needle. But, let us see ! 



When our own G. O. P. of to-day was organ- 
ized in 1856 its members were the dissenters from 
the ranks of the Whigs and Democrats. It is true 
that the basis of the contention was one great ques- 
tion — slavery. But the principle is the same. The 
two parties had outgrown their efficiency. There 
were men in both parties who could not conscien- 
tiously vote the party ticket. They did not believe 
in the whole, and they would not vote against the 
party. So a new party was formed. Then, as now, 
the cry came to the young men of the land, "To 
arms, to arms, ye braves !" 

Aristotle once said that knowledge was know- 
ing what to do, and that virtue was having the 
courage to do it. This is the heritage of the col- 
lege man. He hears the call of the times ! and he 
can, and will, answer. 



IVY POEM. 
By F. K. Ryan. 

The hour has come when now for us the past 
And future meet in sweet communion, both 
To summon hopes and waken sleeping memory. 
As when the night takes leave of coming day 
The mists and phantoms in their rise and fall 
Retreat and now advance, while over all 
The light is slowly victor, driving back 
The shades, yet by its glory golden crowned 
Majestic in its might, the shadows seem 
More real, the night more still and doubly deep; 
So in our hearts the dawn of rising hope 
Outshines by far the sacred, silent past, 
Yet from the dazzling light of coming days 
Our eyes may rest on shadowed ways of yore. 
And in the twilight see ourselves again, 
Relight affections, forge anew the bonds 
Which held us closely, then, and ever find 
That time shall only hallow what is gone. 
Revive the spirit of those years and for 
The impulse, strength and courage of to-morrow 
Take inspiration from a yesterday. 
Three summers of our life 'mid ivied walls 
Are gone. What have we lost, shall tears e'erflow 
For gain ? Each year a messenger of bounty 
Heaped the hands outstretched, with every good 
That wish or stern necessity might well 
Desire. And yet another cycle rich 
With promise comes apace nor ever pauses 
In its haste to bring reward for labor, 
Trials endured, success attained through tears 
Perhaps, but greater cause for joy. Then may 
It be decreed that gladness rule th* occasion 
Nor looking backward be saddened by the "has 

been." 
The future is the offspring of the past; 
Gaze back for strength, look forward to the duty. 

When first we met beneath the sighing pines 
What vistas strange and new did then unfold 
Before our gaze. Friendships that were to blossom 
With the hours and grow to full perfection. 
Strange trials and hardness to endure, and all 
To be made sweet by comradeship, that ever 
Should on knowledge's path both rough and steep 
Lend counsel and a hand in opportunity. 
Then in the distance fair, pleasures unrolled 
Made doubly dear by thought of labors done 



76 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



And that they, too, were shared by those whose 

joys, 
Whose sorrows, even, were in part our own. 
Ambition's draught fanned hot the flame within us, 
Nor could the steeds of Phsethon winged, swift 
Keep pace with our desires, nor even Icarus 
Who in his flight made not the stars but e'en 
The sun itself his goal, set higher plane 
For brave achievement, than did we. As those 
Whose eyes are fixed on glittering peak 
Or cloud wreathed summit, heed them not of pain 
And weariness, but struggle on, the end 
Well worth the means ; we toiled and in the task 
Were satisfied. Thus laboring side by side 
With what delight a virtue new and all 
Unknown till then we found in some task-mate 
Here a brave heart, and there a laughing voice, 
Here strength of will, while there untiring zeal 
Would find acknowledgement ; brought from the 

dusk 
Of dim obscurity by those whose passing days, 
Whose torches, true revealers of the soul, 
Shone in our midst and laid bare, heart to heart. 
If pearls with time do gather priceless worth 
Which wait in quiet 'neath the restless wave 
The fullness of their day, and find at last 
Their rest in diadem ; more true it is 
That in a life beneath these twin gray spires 
Most sheltered for our growth by reverend walls 
The pearls of mind and heart may add their lustre 
Undisturbed. So grows our knowledge deeper 
With the hours, and experience broader 
Till the whole new value gains in use 
Both for our little world and for mankind. 
Shall these brief moments spent 'mid well-loved 

scenes 
With happiness and joy replete be all — 
When campus smiles at kiss of sun and breeze 
Or robed in silver from the moon, it sleeps 
And whispers o'er and o'er its song of peace ! 
Shall these fond dreams, then, be the end to lull 
And soothe our hopes to slothful lethargy, 
To dull the clarion call of needful duty? 
But rather shall these halcyon days be fraught 
With deeper meaning. The time for action comes 
O'ercharged with peril and with strife full soon 
To tax our strength, may this soft calm but fit us 
For the storm, and in its memory change the bitter 
To the sweet. 

Nor was our every trial stored in the future. 
Did not sometimes the clouds obscure the sun 
And darken hearts with sad discouragement? 
Was not the wisdom of that plan divine 
More fully shown by givng unto us 
Both darkness with the light and light with dark? 
Nor shall we ever raise rebellious voices 
To Him who doeth all things well, and in 
His will doth measure out our grief with power 
To bear— and though he called our comrade home 
'Tis not for us to mourn, that one fair soul 
Hath gained the crown and gone before, to wait 
That grand reunion for all time! His footsteps 
Do but lead us on and up, as did th' example 
Of his life among us. fragrant, sweet and pure. 
Exhale the perfume of ideals, for him 
And us. We sorrow in our loss, he joys 
In labors done. The Master spoke, and he 
Laid down his laurels at the golden throne 
But we are left to sow and reap again ; 



Then may his memory lead us to the harvest. 
So happiness from contact with the gloom 
But gave more pleasure on our way, and with 
Glad songs and merry shouts, harmless festivities, 
We whiled away dull moments on the road. 
Ye careless times, best seasons of our youth. 
ThoU hast thy present warnings and thy joys 
In greatest sum for those who use the best. 
The past is gone, the present is our own, 
The future still a galaxy of promise. 
Wealth of learning, ages of experience 
Unite to endow us all if we but grasp 
The opportunity. Let us respond and do! 

O Alma Mater, moulder of our clay, 
Bowdoin, proud wielder of our destiny, 
When ivied walls and campus fair in turn 
Have shared our tribute, what remains for words? 
May deeds then prove our firm and steadfast pur- 
pose. 
The right, the truth, find always champions brave 
In us. And at the parting of the ways 
Be constancy. 



IVY ODE.— BOWDOIN, J 905. 

Air: Oh Heidelberg, Fair Heidelberg. 

Oh Alma Mater, Bowdoin dear, 

Why should we longer wait 
Our votive offering, ivy green, 

To thee to consecrate? 
For now the gladness of our youth 

Fills every bounding heart, 
And still a year of college cheer 

Remains before we part. 

When we have gone on different ways, 

You still shall stay, oh vine! 
From forests near you still shall hear 

The whispers of the pine. 
And as our love to Bowdoin yearns, 

Though long the leagues between, 
Your tendrils fine her walks entwine, 

Oh clinging ivy green! 

— S. P. Chase. 



SENIORS' LAST CHAPEL. 

Immediately after the singing of the ode 
occurred what is perhaps the most beautiful 
and. impressive of Bowdoin customs — the 
"Seniors' Last Chapel." The chapel was 
crowded to overflowing with spectators. 
President Hyde conducted the worship, read- 
ing appropriate passages from the Bible and 
offering prayer. Then, linked arm in arm, in 
solid phalanx, four abreast, the Seniors 
marched slowly out singing "Auld Lang 
Syne." Just outside the chapel the three 
lower classes formed a line on each side of the 
walk. Marching between them the Seniors 
halted just below the Freshmen. The mar- 



BOWDOlN ORIENT. 



71 



shal then proposed cheers for the three lower 
classes, after which the Seniors were cheered 
and the exercises of the afternoon were 
brought to an end. 



THE IVY HOP. 

It is generally agreed that the Ivy Hop 
which took place in Memorial Hall, Friday 
evening, was the most successful college dance 
that has been given for many clays. All the 
beauty and grace of female society in Bruns- 
wick and for miles around was gathered in the 
historic hall and all the social leaders among 
the college men and recent graduates together 
with representative members of the Faculty 
were invited by the Ivy Hop Committee to 
give these fair damsels an enjoyable time. In 
the memory of the oldest inhabitant never has 
so man)' dancing couples been on this floor at 
one time. The present Juniors assume all the 
credit for this, saying that their cordial enter- 
tainment was the strong attraction ; the Sen- 
iors say all the young ladies that came last 
year had such a good time that they advertised 
it. However this may be, the attendance was 
plenty large enough to remove any feelings 
of formality which sometimes mar the enjoy- 
ment of these college functions, and the time 
passed so pleasantly that the morning light 
was already gilding the towers of King 
Chapel when the last of the twenty-four 
dances was over and the last carriage disap- 
peared from the campus. The music for the 
hop was furnished by a selected orchestra of 
twelve pieces by Pullen of Bangor and 
included popular airs from all the late operas 
which deserved the frequent encores which 
they received. 

The patronesses were Mrs. President 
Hyde and Mrs. Alfred Mitchell, Mrs. William 
A. Houghton, Mrs. George T. Little, Mrs. 
William A. Moody, Mrs. Franklin C. Robin- 
son, Mrs. Frank E. Woodruff, Mrs. Leslie H. 
Lee, Mrs. Wilmot B. Mitchell, Mrs. Henry 
Johnson, Mrs. Frank N. Whittier, Mrs. 
Charles C. Hutchins, Mrs. Roscoe J. Ham, 
Mrs. Roswell C. McCrea. The committee in 
charge of the hop was Lewis, Brett, and 
Eaton. 



THE 1905 BUGLE. 

The 1905 Bugle which appeared Ivy Day 
is one of the best that has ever been published ; 
in many respects, indeed, it is no more than 
fair to say that it is the best. The drawings, 



most of them by C. B. Cook, '05, are far and 
away the most creditable and artistic of all 
those in the Bugles we have seen; and the 
illustrations are particularly clear and attrac- 
tive. The material makes an admirable sum- 
mary of the year's work ; and, as record of 
what the undergraduate part of the college 
is to-day, should bring pride and satisfaction 
not only to the class of 1905, but to the college 
and to the alumni. Furthermore, while there 
are many jokes and the usual "slugs," we have 
not discovered a single item that is not in 
good taste ; nor a single slur that is in the 
least malicious. The editor-in-chief, Stanley 
P. Chase, '05, is with the rest of the board to 
be heartily congratulated on the thoroughness 
of the work and the witty yet clean and good- 
natured tone of the whole book. 

There is not space here, of course, to crit- 
icise the annual in detail. As we have hinted, 
the drawings are perhaps the best thing of 
all, from the striking cover design to the 
amusing figure with which the Bugle closes. 
Of the drawings the least successful seem 
those of the different classes with the excep- 
tion of the Freshman who stares out at you 
with all the guilelessness of his class. The 
drawings introducing the fraternities, the 
Medical School, the Classical Club, Society 
and the Overseers, have not only artistic 
merit, but represent the best sort of under- 
graduate humor. Not a few of the readers 
will be amused by the unmistakable likeness of 
Joe Boyd who ushers in the august faculty. 

The record of the year is much more 
complete than it has ever been before. 
Among the new features of this section of the 
Bugle are the unique portraits of the athletic 
captains, the republication of the famous creed 
of 1903, and the reprinting of many of the 
college songs. The book is dedicated to Dr. 
Whittier. 

The last part of the Bugle, the grinds and 
slugs, while not perhaps so individual as in 
the annals of the Class of 1899 and 1903, is 
yet highly amusing. Many of the old ''gags" 
re-appear ; but it is inevitable that the faculty 
should always furnish a foot-ball team. There 
are some interesting parodies on the Gray 
Goose Tracks, the Office, and some unusually 
clever sketches. 

And so, taking it all in all, we feel that 
the Juniors have good right to rejoice over 
their publication. A successful annual, such 
as this, is not of frequent occurrence at Bow- 
doin.

Ivy Day. 



Ivy Daj- with its literary 
exercises, its impressive 
chapel service, and its brilliant hop, is over. 
There was a harmony, a spirit of universal 
fellowship, that made the occasion especially 
noticeable and attractive. The weather was 
perfect and the throngs of visitors could not 
help being charmed by the appearance of the 
college and campus. The Class of 1905 is 
certainly to be congratulated on the success 
of their Ivv Day. 



Commencement 
Number. 



With this issue the publi- 
cation of the Orient will 
be suspended until the 
annual commencement number, which 
will appear about June 27. This num- 
ber will contain a complete account of all 
the exercises of commencement week. Any 



one wishing to get extra copies should see the 
business manager and arrange for them. 



Hymn Books. 



Some time ago the 



Orient published an edi- 
torial urging that hymn books be provided for 
the chapel exercises, but since then nothing 
seems to have come of the suggestion. 

President Hyde stated not long after the 
publication of the article that new books were 
to be procured. 

We certainly hope that by another year 
these books may be found in every form of the 
chapel. The pleasure in the morning prayers 
is greatly increased by the singing of the stu- 
dents and each one feels more at ease by tak- 
ing some part in the daily exercise. 



Ivy Day. On account of the change 

Change of Date, to the Semester Plan it has 
been thought advisable to change the date of 
Ivy Dav to an earlier day. Heretofore this 
function has occurred on the second Friday in 
June, but now such an important series of 
examinations comes so soon after the event 
that it will be much better to set the day 
earlier. 

In his announcement last week President 
Hyde suggested the last Friday in May or the 
first in June as possible dates. A meeting of 
the members of the present Sophomore Class 
and others will soon be called by President 
Hyde to talk over a day and to definitely 
arrange the matter. The results of this meet- 
in£f will be announced in a few days. 



Proctor System. 



Much unfavorable com- 
ment has been heard about 
the campus lately, because the Faculty have 
decided to establish proctors in the ends next 
year. Many students seem to have a senti- 
mentalist idea that this is an infringement on 
the liberty of the college. The Orient as the 
mouthpiece of the college always stands ready 
to defend any real attack on the liberties of 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



tt 



Bowdoin students. In this matter, however, 
we must take and maintain the ground that 
such an innovation will give the quiet, busi- 
ness-like fellows not less but more liberty. 
The disturbing racketings of thoughtless fel- 
lows, which the proctors will do a great deal 
towards ending, is by no means liberty, but 
unwarranted leisure and bullying. If, as we 
say, the proctors can put a stop to at least 
part of this, then the more industrious men 
who are the real pith of the college will be 
the gainers and the system amply justified. 



It is pleasing to note the 
Hawthorne large increase in the Haw- 

Statue, thorne Statue Fund. The 
interest in the work is 
gaining every day and the amount necessary 
for the erection of the statue seems forthcom- 
ing. Large subscriptions are coming in daily 
and the progress of the work will be noted in 
each issue of the Orient. 



Early Training. 



Now that the date of Sep- 



tember 14 has been finally 
decided upon as the time to begin early foot- 
ball practice, every man in college who has 
the least ability or experience in this branch 
of athletics ought to plan to be in Brunswick 
011 that date. This is imperative for several 
reasons ; the games come so early that it is 
difficult for the men to get in condition after 
college opens ; the coach this year is unac- 
quainted with the material and much new tal- 
ent will have to be worked out ; and the mem- 
bers of a veteran team from last year will need 
much supplementing. It is up to every stu- 
dent to either come back himself or induce 
some new man to do so. 



Strict Training. 



The closing of one year 



always brings the pros- 
pects of the next before us. We all look for- 
ward to a winning foot-ball team next fall, 



and more athletic victories as the year 
advances. Every man who has a show of 
making our athletic teams next year should 
plan to keep himself in the best of condition 
during the vacation. We have noticed in the 
past a deplorable tendency towards violent 
breaking of training among some of our most 
promising material. Such cannot be but 
loudly cried down by every man in college, 
and moreover every man should feel it to be 
his personal duty to use every exertion in 
helping any athlete who may chance to be 
near him to keep in perfect health and condi- 
tion this next summer. 



The Commencement Number of 
the Orient will be mailed to under- 
graduate subscribers to catalogue 
address unless the management 
is notified to the contrary.

TENNIS. 



THE VERMONT TOURNAMENT. 

The tennis tournament between Bowdoin and 
the University of Vermont took place in Burling- 
ton last Tuesday and Wednesday and resulted in a 
tie, each team winning ten matches. In singles 
Vermont was ahead by winning nine out of the 
sixteen matches, but in the doubles the Bowdoin 
players won three out of the four sets. The work 
of Tobey and Dana was of a remarkably high grade.

BASE = BALL. 



Harvard 3, Bowdoin o. 

Harvard defeated Bowdoin in a very close and 
interesting game on Soldiers' Field, Friday after- 
noon, by the score 3 — o. Bowdoin was handicapped 
by the loss of Wiggin and Clarke. Notwithstanding 
this fact, however, the team put up a very creditable 
game in the field. At the bat, however, the team 
was hopelessly weak, not securing a hit. Had 
Bowdoin batted any at all the score would have been 
different. Cox pitched an elegant game holding the 
Harvard batters down to seven scattered hits. He 
was most effective when men were on bases. 
Coburn was invincible striking out fourteen Bow- 
doin men and shutting them out without a hit. One 
of the features of the game was a brilliant one- 
hand catch by Cox. In the eighth inning Fischell 
came to bat and drove a fierce ball which struck Cox 
and bounded between first and second. Porter 
picked up the ball and threw to Cox who by fast 
sprinting and a wonderful catch put the man out. 
For Harvard Stephenson put up an admirable game 
behind the bat, while Matthews and Kernan excelled 
in batting. 

Harvard secured her runs in the following way: 
Greenough, the first man up, was hit by a pitched 
ball. Stephenson reached first on a fielders option 
and Greenough was put out at second on Cox's 
assist. Fischell hit to Piper and reached second on 
the latter's error, Stephenson going to third and 
later scoring on Hodgson's error. Clarkson was hit 
by a pitched ball and Matthews flied out to Hodg- 
son, thus retiring the side. In the fourth, Matthews 
struck out. Randall received a free pass to first 
and stole second. Carr singled, scoring Matthews. 
Kernan and Coburn went out in order, the former 
striking out and the latter on a fly to Kinsman. In 
the sixth Matthews redeemed himself by knocking 
out a three-bagger. Randall struck out and Cari- 
nas retired on a foul fly to Stone. It looked as 
though Matthews was not going to score, but Ker- 
nan duplicated his feat of the second inning and 
singled bringing in Harvard's third run. The score :

Brown 8, Bowdoin 7. 
Bowdoin crossed bats with Brown last Saturday 
for the first time since 1899 and was defeated in one 
of the most loosely played games imaginable. No 
one expected Brown to win and none were more 
surprised than the Brown players when the winning 
run was made. Umpire Gaffney aided materially in 
winning the game for several of his decisions were 
a "roast" on the visiting team. Oakes pitched a 
very creditable game for Bowdoin up to the seventh 
inning when he was hit by a batted ball. In the 
eighth inning Bowdoin had a lead of three runs and 
several left the grounds firmly believing that the vis- 
iting team had the game easily. The first two men 
in Brown's half of the eighth were easy outs and 
after that the least said the better. No scoring was 
done on either side until the fourth inning. Clarke, 
the first man up for Bowdoin, struck out. Cox went 
to second on Belding's wild throw to first and 
scored on Smith's passed ball. Porter drew a base 
on balls. Hodgson flied out to Jones. Gould 
knocked a two-bagger and Porter scored. Belding 
threw to Dickinson in an attempt to catch Gould 
off the base. The latter, however, reached the bag 
before the ball, but the umpire could not see it in 
that light and declared him out. In their half of 
the fourth, Brown's team scored two runs on three 
successive singles. In the fifth Bowdoin scored two 
more runs on errors by Smith and Elrod coupled 
with a base on balls. No further scoring was done 
on either side until the eighth. Stone went out on 
Dickinson's assist. Clarke singled but was put out 
at second on Jones' assist, Cox reaching first on 
fielders' option. Porter singled and Cox scored. 
Hodgson flied out to Dickinson, thus retiring the 
side. Hoye, the first man up for Brown, went out 
on Hodgson's assist. Wells was hit by a pitched 
ball, but was put out at second on Hodg- 
son's assist. Tift reached first on fielder's 
option. With two out and Bowdoin two runs to the 
good it looked like a sure thing. But right here the 
team learned that all things are not what they seem. 
Jones was presented with a free pass to first. Paine 
knocked out a pretty single and Tift scored. Keene 
followed with another single and two runs resulted. 
Elrod reached first on Porter's error. Belding 
reached first on Porter's second error this 
inning and Keen and Elrod scored. Dickinson went 
out on Hayes assist, thus retiring the side. The 
score was seven to five in Brown's favor. Gould 
came to bat and laced out a three-bagger and came 
home on Kinsman's single. Oakes struck out. 
White singled and Kinsman scored. 'Stone and

Clarke both flied out to center. The score was now 
tied. The first two men up for Brown went out in 
order. Tift singled and by daring base running 
reached second. Jones and Paine each drew a base 
on balls. The bases were now filled and Keen at 
the bat. The first ball pitched was a strike. Things 
looked interesting for everybody expected it would 
be at least a ten-inning game. The next ball 
pitched, however, was a little low and Stone failed 
to stop it and Tift came in with the winning run. 
The score: 

Brown.

Amherst 7, Bowdoin 4. 

Bowdoin crossed bats with Amherst last Friday 
morning in the last game of the season and went 
down in defeat by the score 7-4. Cox was in the 
box for Bowdoin and pitched a very creditable game 
striking out seven men and allowing but one base on 
balls. Orell pitched for Amherst and was very 
effective, although he allowed five bases on balls. 
Bowdoin gave Cox very poor support, while the 
Amherst men pla'yed an almost errorless game. The 
features of the game were Clarke's home run in the 
fifth inning when the bases were full, and Wheeler's 
sensational catch in center field. Bowdoin's runs 
were due to an error, a single and a base on balls 
coupled with a beautiful home run drive over the 



fence by Clarke in the fifth inning. Amherst won 
the game on a base on balls and a single in the first 
inning, two errors and a single in the fourth, and 
three errors and two hits in the eighth, netting 
seven runs. The score : 

Amherst.

MASS-MEETING. 

One of the largest mass-meetings for a 
number of years, was held in Memorial Hall, 
Monday evening, to transact a large amount 
of business. 

The two recommendations, viz., that new 
medical students shall not be eligible to rep- 
resent the college in foot-ball unless regis- 
tered by November i ; and that a man winning; 
first or second place in the Maine Meet be 
granted a "B," were adopted by unanimous 
vote. 

The elections of managers for the various 
teams resulted as follows : 

Assistant Track — D. Sargent. 
Base-Ball— A. O. Putnam. 
Assistant Base-Ball — H. E. Wilson. 
Tennis Manager — P. F. Chapman. 

The elections for the Athletic Council and 
representatives from the two lower classes 
resulted as follows : 

President — Wallace C. Philoon. 
Vice-President— L. D. H. Weld. 
Secretary and Treasurer — D. R. Porter. 
From 1906 — G. Parcher. 
From 1907 — E. H. McMichael. 

Manager White of the foot-ball team 
called upon the students to support the man- 
agement in hiring Coach Lathrop to be with 
us next fall for both track and foot-ball. The 
student body voted to stand behind the move- 
ment and two first-class coaches are thus 
assured for next fall's team. Manager White 
also urged the men who were to be out for 
foot-ball to be; back by the 4th of September. 



MASSACHUSETTS CLUB MEETING. 

The Massachusetts Club held its last meet- 
ing of the year at New Meadows Inn last 
Tuesday night. Prior to the partaking of the 
bountiful spread, a business meeting was held 
at which L. D. H. Weld, '05, was elected 
President; H. E. Wilson, '06, Vice-President; 
and C. H. Jenks Secretary and Treasurer. 
The guest of honor was Mr. R. J. Ham and 
his address was all that could be wished for. 
Among other things he said that he wished the 
undergraduates would mingle more with the 
faculty. The faculty see only the outer life of 
the student and have to conjecture as to what 
his inner life is. This tendency to steer clear 
of the faculty is clue to the undergraduates 
themselves who have the feeling that by thus 



associating they appear in the eyes of their 
fellow-students to be catering to the Profes- 
sors. A student cannot appreciate a Profes- 
sor in the true sense of the word by just see- 
ing him in the study-room, nor can a Profes- 
sor appreciate an undergraduate until he sees 
more of him outside the class-room. 



STATISTICS ON EARNINGS OF COL- 
LEGE GRADUATES. 

An important feature of the annual report 
of President Hyde for 1903-4, issued this 
week, is data giving the earnings of Bowdoin 
graduates in the several professions. He 
says : "The value of a college education can- 
not be measured in money. No graduate 
would give up what his college education has 
done for him if offered twice or three times 
his present remuneration in exchange. To 
do so would be selling a large part of his soul. 
Neither does any worthy graduate select his 
vocation with a view to the remuneration it 
will bring. He chooses the vocation which 
appeals to his capacity and interest." Presi- 
dent Hyde asked such of the graduates of the 
college as were willing to do so to give him 
their annual earnings, their class and their 
vocation. 774 of those who are engaged in 
remunerative employment, which is about half 
the number of graduates, in such employment, 
replied. Statistics show that, after the first 
ten years, medicine leads, with an average 
remuneration of $4,687. Law comes second, 
with $4,577. Journalism third (though there 
is some doubt about this), with $4,271. Busi- 
ness fourth, with $3,790. Banking fifth, with 
$3,718. Miscellaneous pursuits, such as civil 
engineering and farming, seventh, with 
$2,867. Education eighth, with $2,258. The 
ministry ninth and last, with $1,559. T' ie 
average earnings of the 493 persons reporting 
who have been out of college more than ten 
years, is $3,356. 



HISTORY PRIZES. 

The Class of 1875 Prize in American His-

Medical exams, began this week. 

Cobb buttons are seen quite often about the cam- 
pus. 

The members of the Southern Club are contem- 
plating holding a dinner at St. Louis this summer. 

The great abundance of "skeeters" this year 
makes the need of screens imperative in the rooms. 

Mr. and Mrs. E. O. Holt of Lewiston announce

Canoeing on the river is coming to be a recog- 
nized sport at Bowdoin this spring. Several craft 
are already owned and parties of students are seen 
almost every afternoon on the water. 

Governor Hill has asked Professor L. A. Lee to 
write a history of the mineral resources of Maine 
to be presented at the annual session of the Ameri-

LIBRARY CLUB OUTING. 

The Library Club had their annual outing at Gur- 
net, Saturday. The party made the trip up the 
New Meadows river in a launch, and on arriving at 
Gurnet, enjoyed a game of ball. In this game it 
was clearly demonstrated that the members of the 
Library Club possess a decided aptitude for the 
national game. The features of the game were 
the stick work of Wilder and Fox, and the base- 
stealing of Harper. After the game, dinner was in

Commencement Week. 



BACCALAUREATE SERVICES. 

The ninety-ninth Commencement was 
auspiciously opened Sunday afternoon by 
the Baccalaureate Sermon delivered by 
President William DeWitt Hyde. At 4 
o'clock the Senior Class, clad in caps and 
gowns, led by the Class Marshal, George C. 
Purington, Jr., marched into the college 
church where a vast throng of loyal alumni, 
friends and collegians had gathered. The 
occasion presented a scene of dignity and 
solemnity. The sermon was a scholarly dis- 
course, and adapted to the men now leaving 
their Alma Mater. The invocation was pro- 
nounced by Rev. H. A. Jump and the benedic- 
tion by President Hyde. 



BACCALAUREATE SERMON. 

President Hyde spoke in substance as fol- 
lows : 

Theme — The Gifts of Education. 

Text — "Desire earnestly the greater gifts," 
I. Corinthians 12-31. 

There are five distinct educational gifts : the 
physical, the technical, the liberal, the theoretical, 
and the spiritual. 

The physical gift is a healthy body, with strong 
muscles, normal functions, steady nerves and cheer- 
ful temper. Plato, you remember, in his ideal 
scheme of education, devoted the three years from 
seventeen to twenty to the almost exclusive cultiva- 
tion of this gift. 

There are special reasons in our day which make 
the physical gift of education imperative. The tele- 
graph, the telephone, stenography, the steam and 
electric railroads, and a thousand time and labor 
saving devices have quickened enormously the pace 
of our modern life. A corporation lawyer was tell- 
ing me the other day of the increasing burdens 
these things were putting upon him. Formerly he 
went out to see men whom he wished to see; men 
from all over the State came to see him at his 
office. In these calls time was consumed pleasantly ; 
rest and social intercourse were mingled leisurely 
with the business in hand. Considerable time was 
occupied in writing letters, in keeping a record of 
the progress of his cases, and in kindred forms of 
drudgery. But, he said this leisurely social inter- 



course, even this drudgery was a welcome relief 
from the intensity of the strain of actual legal prob- 
lems.' Now, he tells me, all this relief is eliminated. 
He dictates fifty or a hundred letters, with mind 
alert to state each point exactly, in the time he used 
to take to write out four or five. Through the tel- 
epone he talks with a dozen men, on the very pith 
and gist of a dozen different cases, in the time 
which he used to give to the point of a single case, 
leisurely presented in a personal interview. The 
result of it all is that the head of the firm gets the 
concentrated essence of twenty times as much work 
each day as formerly ; while the drudgery is turned 
over to subordinates and clerks. The case of the 
lawyer is typical of all lines of business. The mer- 
chant is now competing with the world; the manu- 
facturer can never win for two successive years on 
precisely the same methods and processes. 

Second : the technical gift. This includes all 
the training which enters into preparation for one's 
vocation, from the apprenticeship of the skilled 
laborer, up to the elaborate preparation of the pro- 
fessional man. The technical educational gift fits 
each person to do something valuable to the commu- 
nity. 

A man or woman who cannot earn in the mar- 
kets of the world enough to live on, no matter how 
big the bank account, or how exquisite the accom- 
plishments, or how sweet the spirit, is an educa- 
tional pauper. Such a person is getting out of the 
world food, shelter, raiment, protection, amusement, 
for which he is confessedly incapable of rendering 
any equivalent. That is educational pauperism. 

To learn the pecuniary value of this technical 
gift of a college education I recently asked such 
graduates of Bowdoin College as were willing to do 
so to tell me their annual earnings. I received 
answers from about half the total number. 774 of 
these were engaged in remunerative employment. 
During the first ten years out of college they were 
having rather a hard struggle financially, as other 
people have ; and as some of you will have during 
the next ten years. Once established, however, 
these graduates develop and retain well on toward 
the end of life abundant ability to earn for them- 
selves and their families a more than comfortable 
livelihood. Of 493 graduates who had been out of 
college over ten years, the 154 lawyers were earning 
on an average $4,577 apiece. The 64 doctors, 
$4,687. The 108 engaged in education, $2,258. The 
68 ministers, $1,559. The 61 in business, $3,790. 
The entire 493 earn on an average, $3,356 a year. 
Merely as a technical gift, as a means of earning a 
livelihood, a college education is well worth while. 

The liberal gift takes a man out of his little indi- 
vidual self, and makes him the interpreter of the 
processes and laws of Nature ; the heir of all that 
has been said and done by man. He knows 
Nature and humanity, not merely as ministering to 



84 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



this physical and economic life, but as appealing to 
his interest and affection. It bids man be more 
than a mere producer and consumer of material 
goods ; it bids him enter into the thought and pur- 
pose which the world expresses, and which man 
has for thousands of years been slowly coming to 
understand. All the languages that men have 
spoken ; all the literature they have written, all the 
institutions they have established, all the deeds they 
have done, all the sciences they have learned, all 
the arts they have practiced, all the aspirations they 
have cherished, are objects of liberal education. 
To reproduce in the mind and heart of the individ- 
ual as much as possible of the aspirations and 
achievements of the race is the great gift of liberal 
education. In reply to the question of a popular 
journal, "Does a College Education Pay?" I gave 
the following answer, which I offer you now as a 
definition of the liberal gift of education. "To be 
at home in all lands and all ages ; to count Nature 
a familiar acquaintance, and art an intimate friend; 
to gain a standard for the appreciation of other 
men's work and the crticism of one's own; to carry 
the keys of the world's library in one's pocket, and 
feel its resources behind one in whatever task he 
undertakes ; to make hosts of friends among the 
men of one's own age who are to be leaders in all 
walks of life ; to lose one's self in generous enthusi- 
asms, and co-operate with others for common ends ; 
to learn manners from students who are gentlemen, 
and form character under professors who are Christ- 
ians — this is the liberal gift of a college for the best 
four years of one's life." 

The theoretical gift is devotion to truth for 
truth's sake ; forgetful of the individual and his per- 
sonal interests ; lost in knowledge as an end in itself. 
The professor who said that a university career 
would be ideal if it were not for the students, hap- 
pily expressed what every devotee of the theoretical 
ideal at times must feel. If he is forgetful and 
seemingly indifferent to other people, he is even 
more careless of himself; forgets to eat his meals, 
goes without sleeping; neglects his private affairs, 
is like Socrates, the trial and despair of wife and 
family. 

The self-forgetfulness of the theorist was finely 
shown in Professor Sylvester, of Johns Hopkins 
University. Coming out of the opera one evening, 
President Gilman asked him how he had enjoyed it. 
"To tell the truth," replied Professor Sylvester, "I 
got onto a mathematical problem, and did not hear 
the opera at all." Then he unfolded a marvellous 
discovery which had come to him as he had been sit- 
ting there. At the conclusion of his account, Pres- 
ident Gilman asked him, "Do you not wonder at the 
powers of your own mind?" "No," he replied 
modestly, "but I wonder that these things are so." 

The theorist goes out into the unexplored 
country, where mind of man has never trod, and he 
receives the intellectual manna fresh from the hand 
of God. 

The spiritual gift is the power to carry with one, 
as the atmosphere in which he lives and moves and 
has his being, a living sense of that vast beneficent 
fitness of all things to each other, and that law of 
mutual love between persons, which, partially mani- 
fested in nature and human society, we interpret in 
terms of the only experience known to us, as the 
will of a personal God. If this seems vague and 



hypothetical, the Christian finds it all brought near, 
and humanly interpreted, in the matchless life and 
character of Jesus Christ. Across the intervening 
seas and centuries, by the exercise of that con- 
structive imagination which he calls faith, the spirit- 
ually gifted Christian is able to live so near to his 
Lord, that he draws the direction of his will and the 
inspiration of his conduct direct from him. And if 
this, too, at times seems shadowy and far-fetched, 
in the communion with other Christians, in public 
worship and united Christian work, he gets the 
atmosphere of the Father's love and the presence of 
the Spirit of the Master's life, brought still more 
closely home, interpreted and reproduced in the 
lives and characters of men and women like himself ; 
and applied to the concrete conditions of his own 
day and generation. 

This walk with God, this fellowship with Christ, 
this communion with the Holy Spirit as expressed 
in other lives, and the written record of their deeds 
and thoughts, though discernible by the inward eye 
of spiritual faith, rather than by the outward eye of 
sensuous vision, is none the less real, practical and 
potent on that account. All the best and bravest 
men, all the most gentle and generous women 
whom we know, live by some such secret spring of 
inner life as that. It is by far the best gift of 
them all. 

It is good in prosperity, and will keep one from 
the corruption of pride ; the vanity of ostentation ; 
the absurdity of conceit; the decay of luxury, the 
deadness of exclusiveness. It shines even brighter, 
however, in adversity. When the world turns 
against you ; when hopes disappoint, and friends 
betray, and riches vanish, and popularity declines; 
and strength fails ; then to fight a losing battle 
cheerfully to the very end; to take poverty con- 
tentedly, and criticism good-naturedly, and opposi- 
tion serenely, and defeat gracefully ; you must have 
this spiritual gift ; you must know and feel that you 
are part of a great, good, loving purpose ; that the 
dear Christ is your brother and your friend ; and 
that all good Christian people are on your side ; or 
would be if they only could know and understand. 
To those who have this spiritual gift — and they are 
numbered by hundreds of thousands in every 
Christian land, this seems the most precious thing 
in life ; and if they had to part with four out of the 
whole five, this is the one they would cling to last, 
as most priceless of them all. 

Its value grows with added years. In youth we 
get it in crude, undeveloped, imperfect form ; and we 
do not often have occasion to put it to the severer 
tests. Youthful vigor, healthy interests, crowds of 
friends, the pressure of work, the call of play, 
draws us in early life almost irresistibly into outside 
things as the repositories of our treasures and the 
home of our hearts. But as the years go by, and 
one after another of these things prove inadequate, — 
then this mere temperamental optimism will not 
suffice. Then you must find your good, if you find 
it at all, not in the gratification of this or that ambi- 
tion, not in the indulgence of this or that appetite, 
not in the gaining this or that material end ; you 
must find it, if you find it at all, where the spirit- 
ually gifted have always found it, in loving obedi- 
ence to the great, glorious purposes of God ; in 
imaginative companionship with Christ, and in fel- 
lowship with other people who share with you these 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



85 



same spiritual gifts. This sense of sonship to the 
Father, this imaginative companionship with 
Christ ; this fellowship with other Christians in the 
same spirit of love and service; — this spiritual gift 
is the crown of any education worthy of the name. 
It may be had for the asking. No man who ear- 
nestly asked for it was ever refused. No man who 
honestly sought for it ever failed to find it. No 
man ever knocked persistently at this door, to whom 
it was not thrown wide open. It could not possibly 
be otherwise. That there are infinite resources of 
wisdom, beauty, righteousness, goodness and love in 
this glorious world; and that reverent contemplation 
of them will lift our hearts into kinship with the 
Infinite Spirit they express — about this there can be 
no more doubt than about any other case of cause 
and effect in all the world. That the imaginative 
reproduction of Christ's personal presence will make 
the man who practices it a purer, stronger, juster, 
and more generous man than one who does not, has 
been empirically proved in ten thousand times ten 
thousand cases. Of the beneficial effects of genuine 
public worship, and spiritual fellowship with other 
Christian people, there is no more room for doubt 
than there is for doubt about the law of gravita- 
tion. These universal, proved, conceded, estab- 
lished spiritual facts are the great evidences of 
Christianity. Where these facts are recognized and 
rated at their true worth, there is no need for other 
evidences. Without these evidences, all the other 
historical, philosophical, ecclesiastical arguments for 
Christianity would not be worth the breath in 
which they were uttered. Christianity of this prac- 
tical, empirical sort, Christianity as the gift of a 
spiritual life in the hearts of its true followers, is 
as sure as any fact in nature or history, or contem- 
poraneous experience. It is just because it is so 
sure, that all who apprehend it aright, are so abso- 
lutely fearless concerning what science or criticism 
or any other of the theoretical gifts may do to it. 

To be sure, a good many people in these days 
are alarmed at some of the results of critical 
research. Undoubtedly many things that almost 
every Christian believed thirty years ago, are prov- 
ing to be untenable. But that does not matter. 
The manner in which this or that particular event 
happened or didn't happen two thousand years ago, 
has next to nothing to do with thie real spiritual 
faith of the spiritually gifted man of to-day. He 
will concede everything a candid investigation of 
the facts compels him to concede ; and his love to 
the good, great God will be just as warm and con- 
stant: his companionship with the dear Christ will 
be just as intimate and tender; his fellowship with 
other Christian people will be just as deep and true. 
These are the priceless spiritual gifts ; and these 
gifts no discovery of a new document and no dis- 
crediting of an old one, no subtraction from the 
details of history and no addition to the data of 
science can ever take away from the man who has 
once acquired them. 

The great problem at present is how to reconcile 
the clear pre-eminence of its spiritual gift with a 
reasonable recognition of the other four. How 
shall this be done? First, let the church put the 
ideal life, the life of Jesus, the life of justice and 
gentleness and love, clearly and unmistakably in the 
foreground. Let it draw the lines between right 
and wrong, truth and insincerity, purity and lust, gen- 



erosity and meanness, love and malice, kindness and 
cruelty so sharp and clear, that every man shall un- 
derstand that the one set of qualities are Christian, 
sure of the blessing of God, and worthy of the admir- 
ation of all right-minded men ; that the other are 
unchristian, sure of the contempt of all decent men, 
and the everlasting condemnation of Almighty God. 
The church has yet to make these moral issues a 
thousand times more clean-cut and clear than even 
the Puritan or the Quaker has yet dared to do. Let 
the church make the spiritual gift in all its severity 
of moral demand, in all its intricacy of economic 
application, in all its rigor of civic requirement, its 
sole and supreme specialty. Let it make all men 
see and tremble at the hideous, loathsome features 
of dishonesty, unkindness, licentiousness, unfairness, 
pride and pretense. Let it hold up to all men's 
admiration the beauty of holiness, the sweetness of 
purity, the blessedness of self-sacrifice for worthy 
ends. 

Having done this, having served with singleness 
and severity its special and peculiar gift, let it then 
recognize in their rightful subordination, the other 
four gifts. Why did the early church lose the great 
hold it once had on the hearts of men, and the king- 
doms of the world? Because it despised the physical 
and the technical gifts. Because it did not reach 
down efifectively to men's bodies and men's work. 
The emaciated emasculated monk, and the dirty, 
begging friar are what religion comes to, when you 
aim at the spiritual ideal exclusively, in disregard 
of the physical and the technical. Where the 
church ventures to defy the liberal gift, and sets 
itself against culture and art, there bigotry and all 
manner of monstrosity and perversity are the result. 
All these things, however, the church at length has 
learned. Our Christianity to-day is muscular, 
industrial, even liberal. One thing more is required 
for its completion, the adequate recognition of the 
theoretical gift. You remember what the theoretical 
gift requires ; the seeking of truth, — not because it is 
healthy, not because it is profitable, not even 
because it is cultivating to the mind ; not because it 
is edifying : but simply for its own sake, because it 
is true. It demands that new truth which has not 
yet been adjusted to these purposes of profit, cul- 
ture and edification, shall be just as welcome and 
just as sacred and just as free as old truth; and far 
more welcome and sacred and free than old error 
which has managed to entangle itself with the prac- 
tical and spiritual concerns of men. The great, 
unfulfilled, intellectual duty of the church, to-day, 
lies right here; first, in the sharp discrimination of 
what is purely spiritual and the making that her 
supreme concern ; and second, in the recognition 
that the theoretical gift of pure truth has just as 
much right within the college as this pure religion 
has within the church itself. The church has a 
right to ask the college in addition to its distinctive 
devotion to the liberal and theoretical gifts, to 
respect the claims of the spiritual gift upon the 
hearts and lives of her professors and students. 
Such a reasonable claim, such insistence on the 
supreme importance of Christ-like character, no col- 
lege worthy of the name will resent. On the other 
hand, the college has a right to insist that the 
church shall respect its pursuit of new, and even 
startling truth, unfettered, unrestricted, uncriticised, 
and unreproached.

If you please, you may go off somewhere and 
found a school and hire professors to teach, and 
students to learn precisely what you and a few 
people who think just as you do, believe. Such an 
institution ought to be called a training school for 
parrots ; but you shall not profane the glorious name 
of college by trying to make it a place where not 
God's truth, but yours, not things new and old, but 
things old only shall be taught and learned. For 
the theoretical gift is one of God's gifts, and the 
college is its servant and witness. To serve this 
gift, I repeat, is not the chief business of the church. 
Her distinctive gift is spiritual. But she must 
respect the theoretical gift in the college, and leave 
the college free to pursue it, even as she expects the 
college to respect her own supreme devotion to the 
spiritual gift. 

The Bible League, founded in New York last 
month, to defend the Bible against the results of 
historical and literary criticism, is a public con- 
fession on the part of a few otherwise estimable gen- 
tlemen that they do not believe the Bible is a gen- 
uine gold mine, the value of which will rise with 
every specimen of ore that is put into the furnace ; 
but regard it as a bogus mine the stock of which 
can only be maintained at its present fictitious valu- 
ation by keeping every specimen of its ore out of 
the furnace, and discrediting the reports of the 
assayers. When a man is afraid to trust his ore 
to the furnace it is a sure sign that he cares more 
for the impurities mixed with the gold than he does 
for the gold itself. So when a man is afraid to 
trust his Bible to impartial crticism, or his doc- 
trines to modern science, it is a sure sign that he 
does not really believe that it is true, and is afraid 
other people may find out that it is false. The true 
Christian believer has no fear that the Golden Rule 
will be burned up in the hottest fires that science 
can kindle, or the Beatitudes frozen out by the cool- 
est calculations of mathematics, or the supreme 
loveliness of the character of Christ impaired by 
the clearest light of critical research. If you are 
afraid of science and criticism, it is a sign you don't 
quite believe that your views are true enough to 
stand investigation. Fire does not harm gold; nor 
science, truth ; nor criticism, the spiritual gift. 

Members of the Graduating Class : The college 
has striven to place all five of these great gifts 
within your reach. The worthy graduate of Bow- 
doin College ought to strive to make each one of 
them his own. To be without any one of them is to 
be sadly incomplete. Without the physical gift, one 
becomes an invalid. Without the technical, one 
becomes a pauper. Without the liberal be becomes 
a blind man in the picture gallery of the world. 
Without some touch of the theoretical he lapses into 
conventional conservatism. Without the spiritual, 
he becomes an orphan in his Father's house, an 
alien in a world of Christian brotherhood. 

To have any one of these developed at the 
expense of all the rest, is to be hideously deformed. 
The physical alone would make us great oxen. The 
technical alone would make us mere machines in 
the industrial mill. The liberal alone would make 
us fastidious dilletantes. The theoretical alone 
makes one perilously near a crank. The spiritual 
alone would make us mere monks. 

As graduates of this college I urge you to seek 
earnestly them all, and keep them in balanced pro- 
portion. These five distinguishing marks should be 



on every true Bowdoin man. He should be physi- 
cally sound and vigorous ; fond of out-door life and 
sports, doing his work with the joy and ease that 
comes of superabundant vitality. He should do 
some wisely chosen work so well that the commu- 
nity will be glad to give him in return a decent live- 
lihood. He should have a hundred different intel- 
lectual and social and public interests crowding 
upon his mind and heart every day; out of which to 
choose from time to time the one which he loves 
best. He should have some line of study or 
research, some problem of progress and reform of 
which he makes himself a master ; in the pursuit of 
which he can march with the advance guard of 
humanity, and take new truth and new duty fresh 
from the hand of God. 

Finally, he should be rich in the best gift of all, 
the spiritual power to know and love the Creator of 
this glorious world, and the author of his own mys- 
terious being, as his Father and his Friend; to 
carry with him as a guide, a counsellor, a helper, the 
dear Christ who wants to be just such a friend to 
every man ; and to keep alive the sense of com- 
radeship with all the good Christian people who are 
working for God, with Christ to make the world the 
holy, happy home of just and generous men the 
divine Spirit would have it be. 

Carry with you these five great gifts ; and your 
lives will be a glory to God, a service to Christ, a 
blessing to the world and a satisfaction to your- 
selves. 



SOPHOMORE PRIZE SPEAKING. 

The Sophomore Prize Speaking which 
took place on Monday evening in Memorial 
Hall, was a most interesting contest and was 
keenly listened to by the audience in attend- 
ance. One of the interesting features of the 
evening was the presence of Gen. O. O. How- 
ard of the Class of 1850, who presided, and 
who made some very bright and amusing 
remarks respecting the prize speaking contest 
of 1846, in which he was a contestant. He 
also made reference to his experiences as a 
public speaker in a most humorous vein. It 
need not be said that it was a great treat and 
one which was keenly appreciated, to have had 
this distinguished son of Bowdoin as a guest 
on this occasion. The judges for the evening 
were Hon Harold M. Sewall of Bath, Rev. 
Mr. Fiske of Auburn, and Professor Robinson 
of Bates College. They awarded the first prize 
to Harold Stanwood Stetson of Brunswick, 
and the second prize to James Austin Bart- 
lett of Richmond. The College Orchestra 
furnished most excellent music for the occa- 
sion. The program of speakers was as fol- 
lows :

CLASS DAY. 



Class Day, if not the most important, is at 
least the most enjoyable of the Commence- 
ment days, and it was with happy faces and 
smiles that the members of the Class of 1904 
greeted their friends when they realized what 
a beautiful day they had before them. 
Promptly at 10 o'clock the class headed by 
their marshal, G. C. Purington, marched lock- 
step down the aisle of Memorial Hall, where a 
large throng of friends had gathered, and took 
their places on the stage. The exercises were 
begun with a prayer by George W. Burpee. 
This was followed by music by Pullen's 
Orchestra after which came the oration by 
Bernard Archibald. Mr. Archibald's oration 
dealt with Longfellow as a popular poet and 
was ably written and as ably delivered. The 
poem by John M. Bridgham was given at the 
close of the oration and was a worthy produc- 
tion. The class officers who were directly 
connected with the proceedings of the day 
were President Emery O. Beane, and the 
Committee of Arrangements, Harry L. 
Palmer, Walter H. Sexton and George D. 
Martin. 

ORATION. 
CAUSES OF THE POPULARITY OF LONG- 
FELLOW'S POETRY. 
By Bernard Archibald. 

If the year 1804 was a great year for American 
Literature, in that it marked the birth of that great 
man of letters, Nathaniel Hawthorne, how much 



greater was the year 1825 for Bowdoin College? 
For in that year was sent forth a class destined to 
bring fame and honor to its fair Alma Mater. 
Among those who graduated in that year were two 
men, one I have already mentioned, the one-hun- 
dredth anniversary of whose birth we are this week 
celebrating. The other also a literary genius, born 
three years later, in 1807, is he whose bust you 
may see before you, and whose picture hangs on 
yonder wall. It is of Henry Wadsworth Longfel- 
low that I choose to speak to you this morning. 
Longfellow lias been called, and rightly called, the 
people's poet; and the reasons for his firm and last- 
ing hold on the minds of the people generally are 
easily distinguishable. He is the one poet who has 
the secret of getting himself read. People talk 
about Emerson's poetry, about Lowell's poetry, 
talk — and with somewhat more right — of Whittier's 
poetry ; but the poetry that they read is Longfel- 
low's, his and his only, unless we go abroad and 
make an exception of the poetry of Tennyson. Here 
is Longfellow's power; here is his genius; here he 
may divide honors with the greatest in the great art 
of song. This is proven by the large number and 
the varied forms of the editions of his works. 
Beautifully illustrated and handsomely bound copies 
are in the drawing rooms of the rich and plain ones 
in the houses of the reading poor. Often have we 
seen his poems in the library or on the study table 
of scholars ; and frequently found them on the 
bookshelf or the drawer's top of intelligent work- 
ing men. He is a universal favorite. His songs 
are sung in the drawing rooms of peers and in the 
cottages of peasants. All persons who read poetry 
find in his pages something attractive and instruc- 
tive. I feel confident in saying that there are no 
poetic productions, either in America or England, 
including even the works of Tennyson, so popular 
among so many classes of readers as those of Henry 
Wadsworth Longfellow. And this is our Long- 
fellow, he who, remembering in later years his 
Alma Mater with her deep groves of whispering 
pines, wrote with a charm all his own : 

"O, ye familiar scenes — ye groves of pine, 
That once were mine and are no longer mine, — 
Thou river, widening through the meadows green, 
To the vast sea, so near and yet unseen, — 
Ye halls, in whose seclusion and repose 
Phantoms of fame, like exhalations, rose 
And vanished, — we who are about to die 
Salute you; earth and air and sea and sky, 
And the Imperial Sun that scatters down 
His sovereign splendors upon grove and town." 

That he was, and always will be, a popular poet 
is beyond denial; and it is my object to show as 
well as I may, wherein lies the cause of so great a 
popularity. And if I can succeed in bringing you, 
as well as myself, into a better appreciation of this 
poet, to whom we have a peculiar claim, I shall be 
grateful. 

One cause of his popularity is the eagerness with 
which he would have us look on all Nature as 
bright with illustrations of her Creator's regard for 
man. For where is the man who does not like to 
hear his voice or behold the look from the objects 
around him that express sympathy with him in his 
many struggles through life? His dejected spirit 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



is cheered, and his feeble arm is nerved by such a 
voice or by such a look. Whoever knows what the 
battle of life is, will not wonder at a poet being 
universally loved whose muse has wrung forth the 
sympathies of all nature in notes clear and pleasant 
as the song of birds on a- summer morning. Wifh 
truth as well as with beauty has he written : 

"If thou art worn and hard beset 
With sorrows that thou wouldst forget. 
If thou wouldst read a lesson, that will keep 
Thy heart from fainting, and thy soul from sleep, 
Go to the woods and hills ! — No tears 
Dim the sweet look that Nature wears." 

Perhaps none of Nature's grand objects stirred 
him so much as the sea. Hence he says, "The heart 
of the great ocean sends a thrilling pulse through 
me." Yet it never seems to have aroused his feel- 
ings of rapture and awe until lost in wonder at its 
majesty and magnitude. He tells us that his "soul 
is full of longings for the secrets of the sea ;" but 
he never wishes to be one of its waves or a part of 
the tempest that tosses it, like Byron, who wrote : 

"Most glorious night ! 
Thou wert not made for slumber. Let me be 
A sharer in thy fierce and far delight, 
A portion of the tempest and of thee." 

But although Longfellow had not the gift of 
identifying himself with the grandest works and 
the wildest elements of Nature, yet he had the 
power, greater than many poets, of reading the true 
lessons they teach. He was attentive to the message 
of the stars and storms, light and darkness, seas 
and rivers, trees and flowers, for man. 

Thus does he draw strength from Mars when he 
sings : 

"O star of strength, I see thee stand 
And smile upon my pain ; 
Thou beckonest with thy mailed hand, 
And I am strong again." 

And the lessons which he draws have an endur- 
ing power for us. 

"O, fear not in a world like this. 
And thou shalt know ere long, 
Know how sublime a thing it is 
To suffer and be strong." 

Longfellow finds instruction and help for us in 
the daily labors of men's hands, and the uses for 
which they are wrought. As he looks on a light- 
house throwing its beams across the sea, to warn 
the mariner of danger, or to show him a safe 
entrance into the harbor, he interprets its voice : 

"Sail on, it says, sail on ye stately ships ! 
And with your floating bridge the ocean span ; 
Be mine to guard this light from all eclipse; 
Be yours to bring man nearer unto man." 

Even the fire made by the wood of wrecked 
ships, as it warmed him, caused thoughts of pity 
for those whose sufferings had been associated with 
the disaster which brought that wood to the flames, 
and he says : 



"And as their splendor flashed and failed, 
We thought of wrecks upon the main — 
Of ships dismasted, that were hailed, 
And sent no answer back again." 

It is this sensitiveness to impressions from what- 
ever is suggested of human weal or woe, that is 
appreciated by all thoughtful readers ; and is a cause 
of his popularity with readers of that class. 

There is also a large element of exquisite ten- 
derness in the sympathy he shows for the anxieties 
and sorrows which so often dominate and darken 
human hearts, which contribute to his popularity. 
See how delicately he hints at the anxious fear 
which rises in the heart of the fisherman's wife, and 
in the heart of his child, as the gale increases and 
the darkness of night advances on the deep : 

"What tale do the roaring ocean, 
And the night wind bleak and wild, 
As they beat at the crazy casement, 
Tell to that little child? 
And why do the roaring ocean, 
And the night wind wild and bleak, 
As they beat at the heart of the mother 
Drive the color from her cheek !" 

Nor is the sympathy confined to the sorrows of 
life, but goes forth with equal fullness to the loves 
and joys. See how in the "Building of the Ship," 
he speaks of the feelings of the young fellow who 
was to succeed the master builder, and was 
betrothed to his daughter. 

In the same way he describes the feelings in the 
breast of the sturdy Puritan warrior, Miles Stand- 
ish, and those in the heart of his accomplished 
rival, John Alden, when Miles asked him to go and 
propose for him to Priscilla. Miles Standish says: 

"I was never a maker of phrases, 
I can march up to a fortress, and summon the 

place to surrender, 
But march up to a woman with such a proposal, I 

dare not. 
I'm not afraid of bullets, nor shot from the mouth 

of a cannon, 
But of a thundering No ! point blank from the 

mouth of a woman, 
That I confess I'm afraid of, nor am I ashamed to 

confess it." 

Alden goes at this request and pleads for the 
captain, but Priscilla gives this most natural 
answer : 

"If the great Captain of Plymouth is so very eager 
to wed me, 

Why does he not come himself and take the trouble 
to woo me? 

If I am not worth the wooing, I surely am not 
worth the winning !" 

But as he warmed and glowed, in his simple and 
eloquent language. 

Quite forgetful of self and full of praise of his 
rival, 

Archly the maiden smiled, and with eyes overrun- 
ning with laughter, 

Said in a tremulous voice, "Why don't you speak 
for yourself, John?"

Much more might be quoted but this is sufficient 
to show the deep, tender and sacred feelings which 
have found expression in Longfeliow's poetry. 
Never, certainly, were affection's cords touched by 
a more delicate hand, nor sorrow's wounds bound 
up with truer tenderness, nor memory's fondest 
treasures unfolded with deeper reverence, than by 
him. 

And this is another cause of his extreme popu- 
larity, for all classes are affected and attracted by 
genuine gentleness of feeling. Its utterances, 
whether in the most finished verse, or in the plain- 
est prose, play as refreshingly on the weary hearts 
of men as do the summer breezes on the brow of 
the invalid. 

Another cause of his acceptance with so many 
readers is his individuality. The outflowings 
of his thoughts have cut a channel for themselves. 
He has given to every theme on which he has sung 
the color and stamp of his own mind. This gives 
to his works a charm and a power even over those 
whose tastes in some respects may differ from his 
own, for there is something captivating in what 
bears the impress of his strong individuality. It 
comes before us with no borrowed embellishments. 
All it wears is as truly its own as the beauty worn 
by flowers, or the brightness shown by stars belongs 
to them. 

And what adds to the charm of Longfellow's 
individuality is an element of originality. This, 
while not so great as in some poets, is still large 
enough to augment the freshness and force which 
individualism always has, even when it may not be 
associated with original thought. His intellect, 
being more practical than speculative, his original- 
ity consists in new, yet somewhat limited, views of 
objects near us, and with which we are all more or 
less familiar, rather than in broad and lofty ideas 
belonging to the remoter and higher planes of 
thought and imagination. Had this not been so, 
the stateliness and stretch of his thoughts would 
then have been too vast for the powers of most 
minds to have reached, and consequently prized. 
Still, what originality he does Ipossess must be 
placed among the causes of his popularity. 

To these causes we must add his clearness of 
diction. It is transparent as a crystal stream. 
His language never obscures his thoughts. It 
sometimes softens them, and thereby adds to their 
beauty, as the foliage of a tree softens and beautifies 
the rays of the sun. Some poets often employ such 
an exuberance of words, that even robust thoughts 
and burning emotions are shorn of half their 
strength and fervor. It is never so with Longfel- 
low. There is at times a barrenness of language 
used by him but it produces its desired effect, for it 
gives to his thoughts a sterner and sadder com- 
plexion, as the naked trees of winter impart a 
gloomier and wilder wail to the winds that sweep 
through their leafless boughs, than they can when 
clothed in the foliage of summer. His whole dic- 
tion is a faithful reflector of the defects, or of the 
excellencies, which may mark his thoughts. This 
lucidness of style contributes to the poet's popu- 
larity as largely as a clear and cloudless atmosphere 
contributes to the brilliancy and beauty of the 
starry firmament ; for all men like to see thoughts 
through transparent language, as they do to look 
through a stainless welkin on the silent grandeur 



of the midnight heavens. What has been said of 
Byron, can be said of Longfellow, "He never wrote 
an obscure line." 

The last cause of his popularity which I shall 
mention is the high moral and manly tone of his 
poetry. A political writer has said, "The bulk of 
mankind like morals." It is true, notwithstanding 
the evils that exist in the world, just as the coarsest 
natures like to see a lovely flower. To this liking 
of what is moral, this poet has very largely 
appealed. He has done it more indirectly than 
directly. He is not a devotional poet, and yet his 
productions breathe a reverential spirit towards 
whatever is religious in the minds or lives of men. 
He has not followed the example of some of the 
scientists and philosophers of our day, by ignoring 
either the religious instinct in man, or discrediting 
the Sacred Book by which that instinct is developed 
and educated into an intelligent and reasonable 
belief of the unseen realities of a future world. 
He deals with no doctrines of scripture, but I doubt 
if there is a poet, not professedly religious, who 
has enriched his pages so extensively with allusions 
to the historical facts recorded in scripture, and he 
has done it most naturally and gracefully. Just 
one verse from the Wreck of the Hesperus will 
suffice as an example. 

Already is the maiden's father a corpse lashed to 
the mast. 

"Then the maiden clasped her hands and prayed 
That saved she might be : 

And she thought of Christ who stilled the wave 
On the Lake of Galilee." 

From that spirit is derived the moral tendency 
of his poetry. There is one great truth to which 
he has given expression, too much overlooked in 
this age in which the triumphs of the brain, both in 
the realms of thought and of matter, are regarded 
as the highest achievements . of existence upon 
earth. While he has extolled in stirring lines the 
dignity of labor, and the majesty of thought, yet he 
has proclaimed the neglected truth — 

"It is the heart, and not the brain, 
That to the highest doth attain, 
And he who followeth love's behest 
Far exceedeth all the rest." 

As that great truth is woven into a human life, 
it makes it a gentler, a lovelier, a nobler and a 
manlier thing, no matter how narrow and obscure 
the sphere in which that life may move. And 
among the poets of this century whose productions 
have helped to enlighten the mind and touch the 
heart, to refine the taste and breathe into the soul 
the elements of purity and joy, of liberty and love, 
none have contributed more than those from the 
pen of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. 

To the memory of this, our beloved poet, we 
can pay a tribute at this commencement season, 
such as can be paid to the sons of none of our sister 
colleges. In him we find our greatest genius, and 
at his feet we proudly lay our greenest laurels. 

"Pride of the sister realm so long our own, 
We claim with her that spotless fame of thine, 
White as her snow and fragrant as her pine ! 
Ours was thy birthplace, but in every zone

BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



Some wreath of song thy liberal hand has thrown 
Breathes perfume from its blossoms, that entwine 
Where'er the dewdrops fall, the sunbeams shine, 
On life's long path with tangled cares o'ergrown. 
Can Art thy truthful counterfeit command, — 
The silver haloed features, tranquil, mild, — 
Soften the lips of bronze as when they smiled. — 
Give warmth and pressure to the marble hand ! 
Seek the iost rainbow in the sky it spanned ! 
Farewell, sweet singer ! Heaven reclaims its child. 

Carved from the block, or cast in clinging mould, 
Will grateful Memory fondly try her best 
The mortal vesture from decay to wrest; 
His look shall greet us, calm, but ah, how cold ! 
No breath can stir the brazen drapery's fold, 
No throb can heave the statue's stony breast ; 
"He is not here, but risen," will stand contest 
In all we miss, in all our eyes behold. 
How Nature loved him ! On his placid brow, 
Thought's ample dome, she set the sacred sign 
That marks the priesthood of her holiest shrine, 
Nor asked a leaflet from the laurel's bow 
That envious Time might clutch, or disallow 
To prove her chosen minstrel's song divine. 

On many a saddened hearth the evening fire 
Burns paler as the children's hour draws near, — 
That joyous hour his song made doubly dear, — 
And tender memories touch the faltering choir. 
He sings no more on earth ; our vain desire 
Aches for the voice we loved so long to hear 
In Dorian flute notes breathing soft and clear, — 
The sweet contralto that could never tire. 
Deafened with listening to a harsher strain, 
The Maenad's scream, the stark barbarian's cry, 
Still for those soothing, loving tones we sigh; 
Oh, for our vanished Orpheus once again ! 
The shadowy silence hears us call in vain ! 
His lips are hushed ; his song shall never die." 



POEM. 

By John M. Bridgham. 

Mine is the task to feign the poet's art 

On this, our chosen Class Day, and essay 

With little skill presumptive to impart 

Some ornament of rhyme unto the day. 

Scarce three decades have passed since Bowdoin's 

peer 
Of poets chanted those immortal lines 
Of "Morituri Salutamus ;" here 
Are still the walks and streams and murmuring 

pines 
The poet loved. But who can dream the dreams 
Or see the visions that his spirit caught 
From these same spots ? How doubly vain then 

seems 
Our faltering verse. If in the occasion aught 
Demands the outward garb of poetry, 
Then may we humbly venture to present 
These simple measures trusting they will be 
Howe'er ill writ, accepted as well meant. 
Across the seas, where the long lapse of years 
Has bred traditions till the very soil 
Seems hallowed with its haunting memories, 



Where castle grand or cot of humble toil 
Alike claim patriarchal sanctity 
Which we in this New World can never know, 
There may we learn the solemn dignity 
Which age imparts. True, Nature may bestow 
On us the lavished riches of her store, 
With varied scenic grandeur and sublime; 
Even wild Nature's beauty yields before 
The weird, impressive magic touch of time. 
The poet who has sung of Arthur's Court 
And of the Holy Grail, its noble guest 
Has touched a theme of mightier import 
Than aught our native poets have expressed. 
To relics of the past, such reverence 
Is paid by man. Fraught with suh mysteries 
The Old World finds a sort of recompense, 
We pay this price for what our New World is. 

Art e'en as poetry finds greater scope 

In some romantic castle on the Rhine 

Or Spanish convent, rising on the slope 

Of purple hills that gave the world their wine 

Before these shores had felt the white man's tread 

Or known his power. What magic can imbue 

These scenes with mystery? When all is said 

We recognize the vulgar in the new. 

There is a painting from the master-hand 

Of one who knew the power of those scenes 

The latent beauties of that ancient land, 

And knowing, scorned them, so at least it seems, 

To paint this simple picture for all time 

To marvel at. He labored not for fame 

But toiled in Art's true cause, spurned the sublime, 

Chose the sincere and sombre. 'Tis the same 

Half melancholy, half religious sense 

Of brooding pensiveness, the subtle power 

Of feelings half expressed but still intense 

And deeply real, that permeate this hour. 

The day is o'er, the distant West 

Glows with the setting sun. 

Two humble peasants fold their hands, 

Heads bowed, for work is done, 

And from the distant chapel comes 

The harbinger of peace. 

It is the angelus, whose voice 

Bids wearied labor cease. 

This is the solemn hour of prayer 

And grateful praise for all 

The mercies of the passing day, 

For blessings great or small. 

Now lie the implements of toil 

Neglected on the ground. 

They stand, these two, in reverent awe; 

A silence reigns profound, 

Unbroken save by the faint note 

Of summons from the bell. 

Now work is o'er — it matters not — 

Whether done ill or well ; 

The opportunities, which came 

With morning's early light, 

Are merged into the vanished past. 

This day is done. But night 

Marks the transmission of this life 

Into another day 

Of opportunity renewed. 

Suffice it now to say 

The "nttutiavit Mariae 

Angelas Domini."

And the good God who knows their faith 
Will bless them from on high. 

Oh. Alma Mater, who hast led thy sons 

With firm but gentle hand, now as we near 

The parting of the ways, reluctant, comes 

This sense of solemn awe. Do we now fear 

Responsibilities of future years? 

Then would thy patient teaching be In vain. 

'Tis rather that, as separation nears, 

There comes this thought — that never once again 

May we be reunited at thy shrine 

With number undiminished. All the sweet 

Associations which we now resign 

Would make us linger ever at thy feet. 

Thy mandate is to do. not to delay 

Irresolute, so bid us taking heart 

Move onward. Be the future what it may. 

Grant us thy benediction ere we part. 

At 3 o'clock in the afternoon the class, 
headed by Chandler's First Regiment Band, 
marched to the seats reserved for it under the 
Thorndike Oak for the continuation of the 
exercises of the day. If it was with joy that 
the class beheld "Father Sol" shining down so 
brilliantly upon them in the morning, it was 
with sinking hearts and lengthening faces 
that they saw the clouds gathering in the sky. 
The clouds soon attained the dignity of a 
sprinkle and as Herbert H. Oakes arose to 
deliver the opening address he was greeted 
with a heavy downpour. The class decided 
to hold the exercises in the college church. 
Here, the visitors and friends were welcomed 
by Herbert H. Oakes in the Opening Address. 

OPENING ADDRESS. 
By Herbert H. Oakes. 

In the words of one of Bowdoin's most distin- 
guished sons who, near the close of his long and 
illustrious life, honored his Alma Mater by the per- 
sonal delivery on these grounds, of that delightful 
poem based so largely on his college reminiscences, 
"Morituri te salutamus," "We, who are about to die, 
salute you." 

If, however, death is nothing more than a 
change from one existence to another, then we may 
say with the poet, if not in his very words, yet in 
another phrase, we, who are about to terminate our 
existence as a happy and careless band of students, 
salute you. 

For four years we have been associated together 
in the most intimate manner like the children of one 
household, and I stand here to-day for one thing, 
to sing the praises of our beloved Alma Mater ; to 
tell you something of what she has done for us and 
what she will do for those who shall be fortunate 
enough to feel her guiding hand during the most 
important period of their lives. 

Bowdoin stands pre-eminently to-day as the best 
type of the smaller college, and distinctly disclaims 
any ambition to be considered as a university. Her 



position on this point has been most thoroughly 
defined and ably championed by President Hyde 
when he set forth so clearly the advantages of the 
college career over the university course. As the 
late Chief Justice Peters characteristically expressed 
it. "in the university the man goes through more 
college, but in the college, more college goes 
through the man." It is my firm conviction that to 
our constant association with the able minds of our 
college professors, which association has been made 
possible by the limited number of our student-body, 
we owe much of the inspiration to work and love of 
study which I know we, the Class of 1904, regard 
as among the greatest treasures to be taken away 
with us. Since our first entrance into Bowdoin we 
have felt the constant stimulus which has come to 
us through daily work under young, vigorous and 
ambitious minds. Our teaching force has been con- 
stantly recruited from the ranks of men who have 
been up-to-date and aggressive; men who were filled 
with the determination to develop the college and 
its students under constantly improving methods 
and advanced lines. That their success is recog- 
-lized throughout the educational world, has been 
proved by the frequent calls to chairs in the large 
universities. 

The age in which we live seems almost to be like 
the realization of a fairy tale. The slave of Alad- 
din's lamp could hardly have accomplished more 
wonderful things for his master than is placed at 
the disposal of even the most ordinary person of 
to-day. The railroads, telegraph, telephone, phon- 
ograph, the daily Journal in mid-ocean made possi- 
ble by Marconi, the thousand and one conveniences 
of electricity developed even in our day, all cause 
us to be thankful that this is the period of our lives. 
Progress seems to be the watchword everywhere and 
in the midst of all this wonderful development no 
graduate of Old Bowdoin need hang his head 
because of -her weakness. She has been glorious in 
the past. The names of her sons are inscribed 
boldly in the Halls of Fame. This very year is con- 
secrated, in a college sense, to Hawthorne. What 
college owns a brighter son? In war and in peace, 
we claim too many representatives to permit even 
the mention of their names to-day. 

But besides the memories of the past, our pres- 
ent gives us equal cause for congratulation. Dur- 
ing the four years of our college existence we have 
seen two important changes introduced which must 
necessarily result in great good to both student and 
college. I refer to the institution of the athletic 
council which has full charge of the athletic inter- 
ests of the college and to the adoption of the policy 
on the part of the Faculty of allowing the construc- 
tion of Chapter Houses by the Greek letter frater- 
nities. 

For many years great difficulty had been experi- 
enced in meeting the expenses of the different col- 
lege teams and also in formulating rules which 
should give proper freedom of action to the athletes 
and, at the same time, prevent an excess of sport to 
the detriment of study. Questions of "professional- 
ism" and relations with sister colleges also had to 
be considered and were constant sources of trouble 
and dissatisfaction. Nearly all these difficulties 
seem to have been satisfactorily overcome by the 
creation of the Council which consists of a board 
chosen from the Faculty, students and alumni, to 



92

whom all matters are referred and whose decis- 
ions are accepted as final. I am happy to say that 
under their prudent management, Bowdoin's ath- 
letic interests are now harmoniously provided for, 
both at home and abroad, and the athletic associa- 
tion is free from debt. To those of us who had the 
opportunity of experiencing the difficulties endured 
under former methods, the ,present arrangement 
seems a decided step in advance and one calculated 
to give greater satisfaction in the future. 

The ownership of the Chapter Houses by the 
different fraternities seems to us also to be a very 
desirable change. As a rule the underclassmen 
remain on the campus during the first two years of 
college life, thus giving them the opportunity of 
keeping in close touch with the college, cultivating 
the true college spirit and forming their college 
acquaintances. The latter half of the course may 
then be spent much more profitably in the Chapter 
House where early friendships are more closely 
cemented and where freedom of thought and action 
may be more liberally extended to advanced stu- 
dents and older minds. The policy recently 
adopted of allowing admission to college by certifi- 
cate from registered schools will undoubtedly fur- 
nish larger entering classes, and the removal of a 
considerable number of men from the campus will 
result in relieving the congestion of the dormitories 
and in rendering it possible to enlarge the number 
of students, without increase of expense. 

The buildings which have been erected by the 
fraternities are in themselves pleasing in location 
and design, and aid materially in beautifying the 
surroundings of the college grounds which have 
always been a source of joy to the eye and the 
heart of every student. Is there an alumnus in 
this audience whose heart does not swell with 
pride when he looks across the Bowdoin campus 
with its beautiful velvet lawns and noble trees, and 
sees the magnificent quadrangle now completed by 
the addition of Hubbard Hall, and presenting a 
picture not excelled on this side of the Atlantic? 
Hubbard Hall and the Hubbard Grandstand, both 
gifts from a son of Bowdoin and a nation's hero, 
have been erected during the period of our college 
life. 

But more than the evidences of our material 
prosperity we are proud of our Bowdoin spirit; of 
our reputation for high standards of scholarship, 
freedom of thought and honor in athletics. What 
we have accomplished in the past we regard but as 
an earnest effort of what we hope to do in the 
future. 

In behalf of the Class of 1904, it gives me great 
pleasure to welcome you, friends both of the college 
and of the class, to these our Class Day exercises. 

Following the Opening Address, the Class 
History was given by William Coan. 

HISTORY. 

By William F. Coan. 

The class does not need to have its comings and 
goings, its success and failures, of the past four 
years, in all their details, rehearsed at this time. 
Some of these events have been discussed among 



us when the study for the day was over, for I must 
tell you at the start that ours is pre-eminently one 
of students, few of whom would be guilty of any- 
thing so trivial as talking over old times until the 
Biology, or the English Literature, or the Political 
Economy for a week ahead had been conscientiously 
dug out. Some events cannot and ought not to be 
told of here ; they can remain but as pleasant mem- 
ories', to be spoken of only when two or three are 
gathered together. But for fear that from devotion 
to intellectual pursuits, some occurrences, important 
to us, if not to the world, may have been forgotten, 
you will allow me to chronicle such this afternoon. 

On the seventeenth of September, 1900, about 
sixty persons, with carpet-bag and umbrella in 
hand, might have been seen wandering around this 
campus. They were of all ages from twelve years 
up to thirty, and they represented sections of the 
country from East Machias, Maine, to a certain 
little hamlet in Pennsylvania, noted, we have since 
discovered, for the number of lynchings it has 
enjoyed. It was not long before it began to be 
noised abroad that this was the incoming Class of 
1904. The report brought smiles of satisfaction to 
the faces of a number of blase appearing youths, 
who were watching us, for it was we, from the 
"End" windows. We thought at first those smiles 
denoted pleasure at seeing such a prepossessing 
entering class. This was the first day; later we 
discovered our mistake. Next morning we were 
present at chapel for the first time, and when the 
upperclassmen filed out by us yelling "Rush 'em 
out, Fresh," we were so excited and surprised that 
we remained in our seats, — till the molasses gave 
way. There was a little obstruction in coming out, 
for Zeus Roberts wanted to argue with several 
Sophomores, but we were not much bothered. What 
made us feel worse was to think a crowd of fellows 
was waiting for us at Memorial Hall, trying to pre- 
vent us from attending recitations ; we had not then 
learned to hunt for an excuse to cut. And one 
member, who shall be nameless, was so eager that 
in being pulled through a window both ways at 
once, he was deprived of coat, shirt, and, in fact, 
was quite neglige before they finished with him. 
When evening came, yes, when several evenings 
came, few of us can forget with what delight we 
climbed trees, or under those trees aired our views 
on women's rights and prohibition, or sang hymns 
to accord with the religious spirit of our friends 
of 1903. This sort of exercise so pleased them that 
they consented to let us win one out of the three 
Sophomore-Freshman base-ball games. 

Before this time we had been a mob ; we found 
out that only by becoming a unit could we accom- 
plish anything. Accordingly our first class meeting 
was called, at which Harry Saunders made himself 
famous by originating a set of Parliamentary rules, 
and incidentally conducting all the debate himself, 
while twelve other members got as great fame by 
declining to serve as President. But Prof. Puring- 
ton did not want fame anyway, and so consented 
to be the martyr. For this, or some other reason, 
not because he was "Fresh" of course, Prof, later 
in the year was visited by half the Sophomore 
Class and the "Grand Old Man," who retired only 
when they came near being murdered with Indian 
clubs.

If it were not that history must be impartial, I 
should neglect to give you the result of our foot- 
ball game with 1903 ; which was 41-0 against us, in 
spite of the fact that Indian Mayo was present with 
his war-whoop, and Cliff Lowell exposed his mighty 
shoulders to the attacks of the enemy. The defeat, 
however, did not prevent about ten of the class 
from giving our yell at the station before going 
home for the Thanksgiving recess. The other fifty 
at train time had not come out of the Math, exam., 
though perhaps that should not have been, as Buck 
was away that year ; for which circumstance some 
of us and Marshall Cram have not yet ceased being 
grateful. 

When winter term opened up, a few of the class 
had left, either to go South for their health, or to 
work with private tutors, under whom they could 
accomplish more, in their eagerness for knowledge, 
than the class-room would permit. At the Indoor 
Athletic Meet we succeeded in drawing fourth 
place, though we did get second in the squad drill, 
at that time an almost unheard-of feat for Fresh- 
men, but not surprising at present, as after that 
year the difficult parts were cut out. And at this 
Meet you should have seen Freddie Putnam hustle 
to pick up potatoes in the potato race, but we could 
hardly expect anything else, knowing so well what 
part of the State he hails from. It was this win- 
ter that the little difference with Prex and the 
Faculty occurred, when all the classes voted to 
refuse to sign a promise not to take class cuts. For 
a time excitement really ran high ; even we Fresh- 
men ventured to sing Phi Chi and give our class 
yell in front of the Math, room, though when Win- 
nie Town scowled at us from the campus. Senator 
Beverage disappeared around a corner of the build- 
ing in an incredibly short space of time for one who 
bears such a dignified appellation. But the excite- 
ment quickly subsided when it was learned that 
two of the classes, 1904 not being one of them, had 
signed as soon as the papers were given them. We 
could then only follow their example, — or leave, in 
which case the last state would have been worse 
than the first. 

All this time we had been getting ready for 
spring term, which meant for most of us a cold, 
damp season, with the air filled with all sizes of 
paper bags aimed at our innocent heads.' Some hit 
the mark, many did not, for with plenty of experience 
we all became expert dodgers. Gil Campbell holds 
the proud record of receiving the greatest number 
of duckings. The year was fittingly closed by our 
banquet at Riverton, on which occasion several of 
our boldest members developed alarming propensi- 
ties towards that art known to all as "fussing." I 
have been requested not to expose them and can 
only say that the present President of the class was 
not one of them. Here it was, too, that some made 
themselves conspicuous in other ways. 

At the beginning of the next fall term, our 
ranks were somewhat depleted, but the general 
average was kept up by several who registered 
with the Class of 1904, all naturally being sensible 
men. And this was our Sophomore year, when the 
green of our sweaters had begun to mix with the 
white, when our duty to the Class of 1905 became 
dear to us, and when we exercised that duty as we 
saw it and strove to teach the Freshmen a proper 



respect for upperclassmen and Mike Madden. Led 
by George Leatherbarrow, who has since left us, 
and who is chiefly noted for having tried to kill 
Ben Barker and several others at the annual night- 
shirt parade, our cohorts whipped the Freshmen 
into shape and murdered sleep for several weeks, 
but somehow 1905 never seemed to get the true 
proportion of things fixed in their minds, as may be 
observed even now. Which fact is also plainly shown 
by the events connected with the Sophomore- 
Freshman foot-ball game. This is the first time the 
facts of the case have ever been explained by any 
one of our class. We have preferred not to lower 
ourselves by calling our opponents "dirty quitters," 
and giving them other complimentary epithets. The 
regular time for the game was just before Thanks- 
giving, but at that time the Freshmen were many 
of them at home trying to explain their wayward- 
ness to fond parents, or nursing "sore-heads," and 
so could not get together eleven boys to make up 
a team. They were told to come out on the field 
with some sort of an aggregation, but instead of 
that what few there were here left town. This is 
not a fairy tale, but history. The rest of the year 
is noteworthy chiefly because Bill Lunt, Cy Packard, 
John Bridgham, and Tom Chase, each added nine 
inches to his stature, and Jake Powers and Ted 
Cunningham joined the Y. M. C. A. It may not 
be amiss to mention that Zeus Roberts was given 
the position of evening patrolman of Maine Street ; 
his success was great, owing to his gentle amble 
and his beguiling smile. 

Junior year brought to us Millard Chase and 
Don Walker, who could not stand the wickedness 
of Dartmouth, and Schneider, fresh from the Ban- 
gor Theological School, who had an idea he could 
improve the morals of Bowdoin as a whole, and of 
Walter Wildes in particular. Also Emil Otto, etc., 
von Herms and Mr. Wilder were now in the Class 
of 1904. Where they came from history does not 
record. It is sufficient to know that they decided to 
remain, although Herms must be held responsible 
for Mikelsky leaving us at the end of fall term, 
later to return in 1905. Herms used to use Mike's 
room as a foot-ball field, which prevented Mike 
from carrying twelve courses successfully, besides 
public oratory of the midnight variety. As for 
Wilder, he figured out how many minutes a week 
were wasted in shaving, and the result was fear- 
ful. No one could draw a picture of those whisk- 
ers as they appeared strolling across the campus. 
Public opinion, however, will often work wonders, 
and there came a day when Wilder came into view 
wSth beauty unadorned, without his "G-strings," 
which is a vulgar term. That day was set apart 
as one of public thanksgiving. 

During spring term. Professor Callender was 
absent from college, and the Juniors took unusual 
interest in the Political Economy course, gaining 
great knowledge thereby, — of how to avoid work. 
For any information as to the system of marking 
one needs only to talk for a few minutes with 
Myrt. Bryant and everybody else in the class except 
Bill Lunt. Our Ivy Day passed off marred by but 
a few drops of rain. Harper had been a candidate 
for chaplain of the day, but he made remarks 
which were overheard by some of his classmates, and 
which unfitted him for the dignity of the office; so 



94 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



Burpee filled the place, perhaps because some of 
his conversation had not been recorded. 

Last fall when we were entering on our Senior 
year as Bowdoin undergraduates, there seemed to 
be a feeling that the Class of 1904 ought to do 
something that would cause it to be remembered. 
When one seeks opportunities, he seldom fails to 
find them. Our chance came as the result of the 
night-shirt parade, which affair ended in a battle, 
with a General Grant to direct the college forces. 
For 1904 the casualties were many, for Blondey 
Small received a broken head. The news of the 
trouble spreading through the State, caused some 
adverse criticism of the night-shirt custom, so that 
after a few words dropped by Prex to the wise of 
our class, a mass-meeting was called to discuss the 
advisability of dropping this, almost the last of the 
customs peculiar to Bowdoin. Senior eloquence 
did the business, arid now no more will Freshmen 
flit ghost-like through the trees, pursued by spirits 
who will not let them rest. We trust that future 
classes will not forget what they owe to us. 

I have said that this is a class first of all of stu- 
dents, and as illustrations of this we can point to 
work of Dana, Lunt, Harper, Burpee, Bridgham, 
Brigham, Griffin, Clark, Shorey, Wilder, Cunning- 
ham, Hathaway, Bryanlt, .and Cram. And these 
are by no means all who have attained a high 
standard of scholarship, fn the debate with 
Amherst this year, two of our winning team, Lunt 
and Clark, were from 1904. Our athletic ability 
has not been great in quantity, but has made up for 
this in quality. To the foot-ball team we have 
given Captain Beane and Cox. In track we have 
had good work done by Captain Rowe, Clark, 
Everett, and Shorey. In tennis Dana and Shorey 
have been prominent. In base-ball we have had 
Gould, Oakes, and Captain Cox. These last two 
have done the pitching for the last four years, 
Oakes our first two years, and Oakes and Cox the 
last two. We have had our full share of members 
of the musical clubs, and Alphonse Merryman 
has represented us with the Early Birds, fn fact, 
in many different lines, 1904 has taken its part, 
though these cannot all be enumerated here. 

This, our last year, has been spent quietly, and 
we hope profitably, in gaining what we could from 
the much that Bowdoin is able to give. The little 
the class has been able to give in return has been 
given gratefully and cheerfully. As classmates, we 
are but beginning to realize the friendships we have 
formed and what they mean to us ; but we know 
that they will not be ended when we leave behind 
all these dear associations. Though some of us 
may never again clasp hands after this afternoon, 
we cannot forget what we have been to each other 
during these last four years when we have lived 
together, have rejoiced together, have taken 
together what has been allotted to us, until each 
can now say : 

"I have eaten your bread and salt, 
I have drunk your water and wine ; 
The deaths ye died, I have watched beside, 
And the lives ye have lived were mine." 

The Class of 1904 will still continue to be a class, 
no matter how widely we may be separated, and 
will continue to hold a loyal remembrance of and 



a "deathless devotion" to our fostering mother, 
Bowdoin. 

The Parting Address by William E. Lunt 
closed the literary part of the program. 



PARTING ADDRESS. 
By William E. Lunt. 

For the members of the Class of 1904 assembled 
here this afternoon, this marks the close of the four 
brightest and happiest years that can come into the 
life of any man. For four years we have been living 
the life which typifies the philosophy of Omar Khay- 
yam, free from "past regrets and future fears ;" the 
life colored by the optimism of youth which makes 
us see good in all men. It is the most democratic 
life which a man may ever experience : the life in 
which a manly act is soonest recognized and a dis- 
honorable act the quickest denounced ; the life in 
which friendships are easiest formed and hardest 
broken. It is the life of which scholars have written 
and poets sung, but a life which to be understood 
must have been lived. 

The spirit which runs through and underneath 
this life, permeates it, surrounds it, makes the life 
what it is, is that of Bowdoin, our Alma Mater. 
Four years ago she received us unto herself. She 
has aided us in our search for knowledge. She has 
moulded and recast our characters. She has taken 
away from the characteristics of one, added to those 
of another, united and solidified us until we have 
become part and parcel of the life and its environ- 
ment. 

But the time has come when we as a class must 
say our last farewell to our Alma Mater. Our part 
in the active life of the college is finished. The col- 
lege halls echoing to the sound of manly voices, the 
chapel bell ringing out its daily summons, this fair 
campus upon which our life has centered for the past 
four years, all will soon become for us but memories. 
The hours of toil and the hours of play ; the defeats 
nobly met and the victories hardly won are already 
matters of history. Never again shall we feel the 
same mad thrill of exultation that follows an athletic 
contest won, never again experience quite the same 
feeling of good fellowship, "of one for all and all 
for one." The traditions, the associations, the 
friendship, the ties so closely knit that they have 
become a part of our very selves must all be broken. 
We go forth into the world. 

As we came together four years ago, so we go 
forth again to-day, as individuals. The fostering 
care of our Alma Mater can no longer guide our 
steps. From to-day our paths separate. Each must 
go his own appointed way. Each must make or 
mar his own life. All things must be begun anew. 
We leave with sorrow and regret. We look into 
the future with doubt and uncertainty. 

But. although we go forth to our appointed tasks 
not knowing what the future may contain, we go 
not unprepared. We go with confidence in our- 
selves and in humanity. Buried deep in the breast of 
each one of us lies that lesson which Bowdoin 
teaches to her sons : to know their duty and to do it. 
It is the teaching which has animated the warrior on 
the field of battle. The statesman has applied it in 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



95 



the guidance of the nation. With it the poet has 
inspired countless men and women to nobler and bet- 
ter deeds. But the spirit which is to-day beating in 
the pulse of every son of Bowdoin, guides his path 
more true than the compass guides the mariner on 
the pathless deep. It is the heritage of Old Bowdoin 
to her sons. 

From our numbers it may be that none will rise 
to places' of influence and power. It is inevitable 
that the most of us shall join the great mass of the 
rank and file. The efforts of a few will be stamped 
with success. The lives of more will be marked 
with failures and disappointments. But whatever 
position each of us may occupy, whether life is 
crowned with victory or marred by defeat, let each 
of us so live that when his course is finished the 
world shall say of him, "He lived and died a man." 
Then shall we know that the Class of 1904 has been 
true to its heritage. Then shall we know that 
although to-day we say farewell to our Alma Mater, 
each of us takes with him a spark of that undying 
fire, which burning in the breasts of so many of her 
sons has illumined the annals of the nation and 
humanity. Then shall we know that we ha.ve 
learned well the lesson that Old Bowdoin teaches to 
her sons. 

All of the parts were very entertaining, as 
were the musical numbers which occurred 
between each. After the parting address the 
class marched out to the campus, where 
they formed a circle and smoked the pipe of 
peace, after which they rose in their places 
and, accompanied bv the band, sang the Class 
Ode. 

CLASS ODE. 

S. T. Dana. 

Air — Eton Boating Song. 

Bowdoin our Alma Mater, 

Fairer can never be, 
To-day we are come together 

To say farewell to thee ; 
But wherever life shall lead us, 

We'll love thee for evermore, 
And long shall thy praises be echoed 

By the Class of Nineteen Four. 

Here, 'neath thy pines majestic, 

Here 'mid thine ivied halls, 
Has been bred in us the spirit 

To welcome whatever befalls; 
So now as we face the future, 

Where each must bear his part, 
We'll enter life's long struggle, 

With a strong and manly heart. 

Others will soon take our places, 

Classes will come and go. 
Yet ne'er shall our love for thee weaken. 

But ever shall stronger grow. 
With a toast to old days at Bowdoin, 

We'll fill to the brim our glass, 
And we'll cheer, cheer forever, 

For the college and for the class. 



After the singing of the ode the class, 
headed by the band, marched around the cam- 
pus and cheered the buildings in farewell. 
After cheering Memorial Hall the final leave- 
takings occurred and the exercises of the 
afternoon were brought to an end. 



COMMENCEMENT HOP. 

Memorial Hall, on Tuesday evening, was 
the scene of one of the most brilliant social 
events of the season, the Senior promenade 
and hop. The spacious hall was tastefully 
decorated with palms and potted plants. There 
was a profusion of college banners and pillows 
which added greatly to the beauty of the room. 
Pullen's Orchestra furnished music in an 
acceptable style. 

The Committee of Arrangements consisted 
of Harry Lane Palmer, Walter Howard Sex- 
ton and George Dudley Martin. 

The patronesses were : Mrs. William 
DeWitt Hyde, Mrs. Leslie A. Lee, Mrs. 
Franklin C. Robinson, Mrs. William A. 
Houghton, Mrs. Henry Johnson, Mrs. George 
Little, Mrs. Charles C. Hutchins, Mrs. Wil- 
liam Moody, Mrs. Alfred Mitchell, Mrs. 
Alfred L. Dennis, Mrs. R. J. Ham, Mrs. Ros- 
coe McRae, Mrs. George Files, Mrs. Wilmot 
Mitchell. 



MAINE HISTORICAL SOCIETY. 

The annual meeting of the Maine Historical 
Society was held in the Cleveland Lecture Room, 
Tuesday afternoon at 2 p.m. The attendance was 
fairly large. The various reports were read and 
accepted, the treasurer's report showing a good bal- 
ance on hand. Various matters were taken up and 
discussed. The nominating committee, composed of 
Messrs. Perkins, Chapman, and Stillfen, reported the 
following list of officers which was duly elected : 
James P. Baxter, President; Professor H. L. Chap- 
man, Vice-President ; S. L. Boardman, Correspond- 
ing Secretary and Recorder ; H. W. Bryant, 
Recording Secretary and Librarian. 



PHI BETA KAPPA SOCIETY. 

The annual meeting of the Phi Beta Kappa fra- 
ternity. Alpha of Maine, was held at Hubbard Hall 
at 9 o'clock Wednesday morning. The following 
officers were elected : Hon. Franklin A. Wilson of 
Bangor, President ; Prof. Jotham D. Sewall of Bos- 
ton, Vice-President ; Prof. George T. Files, Secre- 
tary and Treasurer. The literary committee was 
■chosen as follows : Prof. Henry L. Chapman, Prof. 
George T. Little, Prof. C. C. Torrey, Yale Univer- 
sity, and Rev. Charles H. Cutler, Bangor. The 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



following members of 1904 were elected and initiated 
into the fraternity : Philip M. Clark, Cambridge, 
Mass. ; Howard C. Griffin, Bangor ; Chester T. Har- 
per, Christiana, Penn. ; William E. Lunt, Lisbon ; 
Arthur C. Shorey, Bath ; Ralph S. Smith, Newburg ;

Harbor ; Edwin L. Harvey, Bethel ; Henry G. Ler- 
mond, Warren ; Leonard A. Pierce, Houlton ; Louis 
D. H. Weld, Hyde Park, Mass.; Henry Hyde 
Smith, Class of 1854, of Boston, was elected as an 
honorary member. Last year the following men of 
the Class of 1904 were admitted into the fraternity : 
Marshall P. Cram, Brunswick; Samuel T. Dana, 
Portland; John M. Bridgham, Dexter; Myrton A. 
Bryant, Westbrook ; George W. Burpee, Houlton ; 
Eugene P. D. Hathaway, Wellesley, Mass. 



MEDICAL SCHOOL GRADUATION. 

The graduating exercises of the Maine Medical 
School occurred Wednesday in the college church. 
At 10 o'clock the class, led by its marshal, Ernest 
Victor Call, marched down the aisle of the church 
and took their places in the four front pews. The 
exercises were opened by a prayer by Rev. E. N. 
Packard of Board of Overseers. This was fol- 
lowed by music by Chandler's Band, after which 
came the address which was delivered by Rev. H. 

A. Jump, pastor of the college church. This

ABSTRACT OF ADDRESS TO THE 

GRADUATING GLASS OF THE 

MEDICAL SCHOOL OF MAINE. 

The speaker took for his theme "The Virtue of 
Reverence." This virtue, he said, peculiarly 
requires emphasis in these rushing days, and is not 
inappropriate to your noble calling. Reverence is 
far broader than religion, it precedes and conditions 
religion, it is the manorial estate of which religion 
is but a single tenant. A traveller sojourning in a 
highland village of Scotland noticed his host each 
morning climb a hill back of the house and remain 
a 'few moments as if in prayer. Upon his asking 
the explanation of this practice his host answered 



him. "I climb that hill each morning to doff my 
bonnet to the beauty of the world." That was rev- 
erence. Until you have doffed your bonnet to 
something, — if not to the morning sunshine, then to 
a fellow-soul, a royal thought, a commanding truth, 
a deathless hope, an imperial ideal, you are not full- 
grown men. The declaration of Goethe is a true 
one, that "Manhood depends upon the possession of 
the triple reverence, reverence for what is above us, 
reverence for our equals, reverence for what is 
below us." 

Reverence may be defined as an exalted sense of 
worth interfused with wonder. Worth does not 
produce reverence without the aid of awe, awe can 
never issue in reverence without the companionship 
of worth. But these factors are also the perils that 
beset this royal virtue ; for when the element of 
wonder is overworked you have superstition, when 
the element of worth is considered exclusively you 
have the utilitarianism of the commercial spirit. The 
one peril marked the mediaeval ages, the other is 
threatening our national life to-day. To illustrate 
fi'om your • own profession, a Bowdoin student 
recently told me, "I intend to be a doctor, for in 
that business I can begin to make money sooner, 
keep making it longer, and all along make more of 
it." He will never practice the healing "art," he 
will have to do only with the healing "trade." 

As physicians you will manifest this virtue of 
reverence toward the human body which you treat. 
As Walt Whitman sings, "If anything is sacred, the 
human body is sacred." You will never approach 
the bedside of a patient without a realization of the 
significance of "that human organism which is the 
receptacle of a living soul." Prepare your medicine 
as though you were a priest making ready the rites 
of a holy faith. Guard against flippancy and fool- 
hardiness as you would guard against yellow fever. 

Revere your profession as an art. The doctor 
practices one of the finest of the fine arts. Have an 
ideal in your daily work, and follow this as Merlin 
followed the gleam. Regard your art broadly. 
While a narrow man can be a good wood-chopper, 
it takes a broad man to be a successful wood-carver. 
Use your art for civic betterment, be a sanitary 
expert in your town and give your services to the 
community as a true American citizen. Study 
psychology as well as materia medica, be mind- 
curers as well as body-curers. 

Lastly, you must have reverence both for the old 
and for the new. In you the conservative must be 
married to the iconoclast. The one will not forget 
the old that is true, the other will not hesitate to 
welcome the true that is new. Reverence is contem- 
poraneous as well as ancestral. It accepts any 
heresy which is the heresy of a demonstrated fact. 

The address was copiously illustrated from the 
history of medical science and was brightened with 
an occasional touch of humor. 



DEDICATION OF HUBBARD GRAND- 
STAND. 

On Wednesday forenoon, the dedication 
of the Hubbard Grandstand took place. The 
grandstand with a seating capacity of nearly 
600 was packed when President Hyde arose to

introduce General Hubbard. The President 
in his introductory remarks paid a glowing 
tribute to General Hubbard and when the lat- 
ter arose he was greeted with prolonged 
cheering. He said that we wished to dedicate 
the building to athletics and above all to "fair 



the Alma Mater which was shown in making 
this priceless gift was all the more pleasing 
because it showed the love of a loyal son. Dr. 
Whittier also gave an excellent and intensely 
interesting resume of the athletic life at Bow- 
doin, taking it back as far as 1822. The heavy 




play, and may the best man win." He gave an 
exceedingly fine address, taking as his theme 
the maxim of fair play. He finished, as he 
began, amid tremendous applause. President 
Hyde then introduced Dr. Frank N. Whittier 
who accepted the building in behalf of the col- 
lege. In his speech of acceptance he expressed 
with feeling the deep debt of gratitude which 
every alumnus, student and friend of Bow- 
doin feels towards General Hubbard for his 
second magnificent gift. He said that this 
beautiful gift in itself meant much, but to the 
friends of the college, the spirit of loyalty to 



shower which fell during the latter part of the 
exercises did not dampen the ardor of the 
throng of guests as they left the field, happy in 
the thought that Bowdoin possesses the finest 
grandstand for its size of any college in the 
country. 

Note.— We regret very much that we are 
unable to print the addresses of Gen- 
eral Hubbard and Dr. Whittier, owing to the 
fact that we have not received them. They 
will, however, be printed in pamphlet form 
and sent to all our subscribers later on.

THE EXERCISES COMMEMORATIVE 
OF THE ONE-HUNDREDTH ANNI- 
VERSARY OF THE BIRTH OF 
NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE. 

At three o'clock Wednesday afternoon the 
college church was crowded with friends and 
alumni of the college to hear the exercises 
commemorative of the one-hundredth anni- 
versary of the birth of Hawthorne. On the 
platform were seated the members of the 
Board of Trustees, Overseers and the Faculty, 
while in the center sat President Hyde, with 
Chief Justice Melville W. Fuller, of the Class 
of 1853, on his right, and Hon. Bliss Perry, 
editor of the Atlantic Monthly, on his left. 
The exercises opened with a prayer by Rev. 
Dr. John S. Sewall of the Committee of the 
Boards. After a choice selection by Chand- 
ler's band President Hyde introduced Bliss 
Perry to deliver the address. This address, 
like the one delivered before the graduating 
class of the Medical School in the morning, 
was one worth going a long distance to hear. 
It was a most excellent oration teeming with 
elegant diction and profound thought. We 
regret very much that we are able to print only 
an abstract here, owing to the fact that the 
entire address will appear in the August num- 
ber of the Atlantic Monthly. 



ABSTRACT OF ADDRESS DELIVERED 
BY HON. BLISS PERRY. 

In the best known and best loved circles of our 
American writers there is one figure who stands in a 
soil of involuntary isolation. Nathaniel Haw- 
thorne died about forty years ago, and many living 
men and women remember him with strange vivid- 
ness. Yet he remains, after all, a man apart. Mys- 
tery gathers about him, even while the analysts and 
the critics are striving to make his portrait clear. 
Like Hamlet he loved to discourse with unlettered 
people, with wandering artists, with local humorists, 
although without losing his own dignity and inviol- 
able reserve. He had irony for the pretentious, 
kindness for the simple-hearted, merciless wit for 
the fools. He liked to speculate about men and 
women, about temptation and sin and punishment ; 
but he remained clear-sighted enough to distinguish 
between the thing in itself, and the thing as it 
appeared to him in his solitude and melancholy. 

We celebrate in this summer time, the centenary 
of Hawthorne's birth. No glimpse of Hawthorne, 
at any period of his career, is without its charm; 
yet a peculiar fascination attaches to those pictures 
of the handsome, brooding, impenetrable boy which 
have been sketched in lines all too few, by his col- 
lege classmates. Here in a rustic school of learn- 
ing, on the edge of the wilderness, our student 



found his Wittenberg. When Hawthorne matricu- 
lated in 1821, Bowdoin College had had but nineteen 
years of struggling life. There were a handful of 
professors, and slightly more than a hundred stu- 
dents. Yet the place already had. character and it 
somehow bred aspiration. 

Among his more ambitious companions, the shy 
young Hawthorne held quietly to his own paths. 
He seems to have liked the plain country-bred lads 
better than the sons of wealth and social oppor- 
tunity. He belonged to the more democratic of the 
two literary societies. The scanty records of his 
undergraduate life tells tis something of him 
although not much ; he rooms in Maine Hall, he 
boards at Mrs. Dunning's, he is fined for card-play- 
ing, refuses to declaim, writes better Latin and 
English prose than the others, — but that is about all. 

Although the young Hawthorne came no nearer 
winning academic distinction than Lowell and 
Thackeray, his college career betrays everywhere a 
steady insistence upon what he deliberately thought 
and felt it right to do. He had his own inner life, 
and if Bowdoin did not impart to him all the mani- 
fold intellectual and spiritual culture which an old 
world university in theory possesses, he found there 
freedom, health, and a few men to love. 

What sort of a writer of fiction was he? Many 
elements contribute to the answer of that question. 
There are lines of literary inheritance to be 
reckoned with ; influences of race and nationality 
and epoch play their part. But of all the factors 
that shaped Hawthorne's career as a writer, Salem 
inevitably comes first. Back to that weather- 
beaten, decrepit seaport Hawthorne returned when 
the bright college days were over. The gray mist 
of the place settles about him and gathers within 
him, and for a dozen years one can scarcely tell 
whether he is man or spectre. All that is certain is 
that he is alone. His classmates fare forth eagerly 
into law, politics, business. But Hawthorne has no 
taste for any of the professions. He lingers on in 
Salem, sharing the scanty income of his mother and 
sister, reading desultory books, taking long noctur- 
nal and daytime rambles, brooding, dreaming, and 
trying to learn in his dismal chamber to write 
stories of human life. The sojourn of Hawt L orne 
in Salem is an old story now. Nothing new is to be 
added to the record of morbid physical isolation and 
of intellectual solitude. True, Hawthorne's separa- 
tion from the world preserved him from those dis- 
tractions which often dissipate the powers of the 
artist He kept, as he said, the dew of his youth 
and .he freshness of his heart. His unbroken leis- 
ure left him free to ponder upon a few permanent 
objects of meditation, and no one can say how 
much his romance may not have gained thereby in 
depth of tone and concentration of intention. 

Yet the plain fact remains that he hated his self- 
imposed prison, even while he lacked vigor to 
escape from it. Strike the veil of romantic mystery 
from these Salem years, and they show their sinis- 
ter significance. It was an abnormal melancholy 
existence which sapped Hawthorne's physical vital- 
ity and left its twilight upon his soul and upon the 
beautiful pages of his books. Hawthorne said of 
them afterward — "They have the pale tint of flowers 
that blossomed in too retired a shade." 

Nevertheless, the flowers did blossom in spite of 
all. The soil would have been better had it been 



too

enriched and watered, yet it was Hawthorne's native 
soil. For two hundred years his ancestors had 
trodden the Salem streets, had persecuted witches, 
had whipped Quaker women, had helped to build a 
commonwealth. He had no particular pride or 
love for them, but he cculd not escape the bond of 
kinship. His imagination homed back to the super- 
stition burdened past, with its dark enthusiasm, its 
stern sense of law. Open the mouldering folio of 
Mather's Magnalia and you will discover the men

and the scenes that haunted Hawthorne's mind as 
he sat in the dusky chamber writing tales. 

Pale blossoms, indeed, are many of these earlier 
tales, yet genius was stirring at their root, and their 
growtb was guided by a hand that already distin- 
guished between the lower truth of fact and the 
higher truth of the imagination. Sunshine was all 
that was needed, and by and by, though tardily, the 
sunshine came. Hawthorne falls in love ; he craves 
and finds contact with "the material world ;" he goes 
to work in the Boston Custom House ; he makes 
investment of money and co-operation at Brook 
Farm, where his handsome figure and quizzical smile 
seem almost substantial now, among the ghosts of 
once eager reformers that flit about that deserted 
hillside. He marries a charming woman and lives 
with her in the Old Manse at Concord for four 
years of idyllic happiness. He publishes a new col- 
lection of tales marked by originality of conception, 



a delicate sense of form, and deep moral signifi- 
cance. He goes picknicking with politicians, too, 
and gets appointed surveyor of the port of Salem. 
He is doing a man's work in the world now, and in 
spite of some humorous grumblings and the neglect 
of his true calling, takes a manly satisfaction in it. 
But partisan politics rarely did America a better 
service than in 1849, when the Whig administration 
threw Hawthorne out of office. His admirable wife, 
when he told her that he had been superseded, 
exclaimed. "Oh, then you can write your book." 

This book, as every one knows, was the Scarlet 
Letter, that incomparable masterpiece of American 
fiction, which has ever since taken its place among 
the great literature of the world. The boyish 
dream of fame, analyzed in so many exquisite par- 
ables cheering his weary years of waiting, had at 
last come true to him. He was too unworldly to 
value it over-much, but he took a quiet pleasure in 
his success, without losing his cool, detached attitude 
towards his own creations. He was forty-six ; and 
he had but fourteen more years to live. The first 
two of which were most rich in production, for they 
brought forth the House of the Seven Gables, that 
well-nigh faultless romance of Old Salem; the 
beautiful Wonder-Book, written in six weeks with 
marvelous technical mastery of a difficult genre of 
literature ; and finally the shrewd, ironical, surpris- 
ingly novel handling of his Brook Farm material, 
the Blithedale Romance. 

When Hawthorne accepted the Liverpool consul- 
ship in 1853, ne was already, what he has ever since 
remained, the foremost writer of fiction. His 
extended sojourn abroad illuminated his mind in 
many ways, but it can scarcely be said to have con- 
tributed new elements to his art. The unseen 
springs of vitality in him were beginning to fail ; 
the shadows dispersed by many a year of happiness, 
were beginning" to close in once more. 

It was in the year of i860 that the wayfarer 
returned home, and settled at The Wayside in Con- 
cord. Wartime was nearing, and Hawthorne, never 
an eager politician in any cause, was perplexed about 
his country, gloomy about himself. He wrote, 
indeed, wth his customary skill of surface composi- 
tion upon a new romance whose theme was the 
elixir of immortality. "I have a notion," he writes 
to Longfellow, "that the last book will be my best, 
and full of wisdom about matters of life and death." 
But it was fitful, despairing work, without unity of 
architecture. He sketched it now under one title 
and now under another. At last he prepared the 
opening chapter for the Atlantic Monthly, but in 
May, 1864, the unfinished manuscript rested upon 
his coffin. And so there passes from sight our New 
England Hamlet, with his grave beauty, mournful 
accents, his half-told wisdom about matters of life 
and death. 



THE PRESENTATION OF THE CLASS 
OF 1878 MEMORIAL GATEWAY.

exercises occurred the presentation of the

was made by Professor A. E. Burton as fol- 
lows : 

PRESENTATION OF '78'S GATEWAY. 
Address by Prof. Alfred E. Burton 

To the President and officers of Bowdoin College, 
and the alumni, I wish to say that the motive that 
actuates the surviving members of the Class of '78 
to build and present to you this gateway is solely 
the desire to leave with you, here on these grounds, 
some lasting and tangible memorial of their loyalty 
to the college. 

Structures built of iron, stone, brick and cement 
outlive their builders. May these simple posts do 
this service for us. Size and cost do not determine 
the age of structures. May this stone, brick and 
cement have been so well joined together that they 
will reach a moss-grown antiquity. 

'78 would gladly give you a structure more 
imposing, more beautiful, more useful, were she able 
to do so. We are but a little band of fifteen men 
(we numbered twenty-two when we entered college), 
but we have as much affection for our Alma Mater 
as the largest class that ever graduated. 

It is a portal, not a gate ; it welcomes all and 
shuts out none. It indicates the boundary between 
ground devoted to education, hallowed by traditions 
and associations, and ground devoted to traffic and 
the every-day business of commercial life. We place 
it here not as a barrier. There is no need of a bar- 



should be open to the world. It is a portal of wel- 
come ; not a gate for exclusion. 

Our posts are erected much in the same spirit as 
were those wooden torii scattered along the roads of 
Old Japan. They indicate to the traveler that he is 
approaching a shrine ; they bid him to compose his 
thoughts ; to bring his soul into a receptive and 
appreciative mood. 

The symbolism of our gateway is plain and easily 
read. Above all you see the open book, symbol of 
knowledge, education, culture ; in the center of the 
iron work the old college seal, the same we rejoiced 
to see upon our diplomas. On the post of honor 
the Heraldic Coat-of-Arms of the Bowdoin Family 
worthily enwreathed with laurel ; on the other post 
is inscribed the date of erection, and below, with 
all due modesty, the year of the class. It would 
not have taken a much larger panel to have recorded 
the roll of all the living members, but this is not the 
gift of individuals ; it is a memorial to our class and 
especially to those fine fellows who have gone and 
cannot share in the giving. 

We were always few in number ; not large 
enough for successful combinations and cliques we 
were forced to act a unit. Even the Faculty recog- 
nized this fact and when some of us got into a 
scrape put the whole class on a stage of discipline. 

We lived here four happy years among the build- 
ings which you can see from our gateway. The sur- 
roundings in which we find ourselves after passing 
through this gate are so new and impressive that we 
actually need the faces of our old professors to 
assure us this is Bowdoin. Chapman, Robinson, 
Johnson, and Lee know us if the others do not. We 
are glad that we are old enough to remember Pack-

ard and Young, and be known to the Brothers 
Sewall. As Freshmen we gathered in the Church 
on the Hill to hear Longfellow. We listened to the 
Morituri Salutamus from his lips, and dear old 
Professor Packard, as he presided at the chapel ser- 
vice, was a living link with the college that knew 
Hawthorne and the famous Class of '25. 

We do not talk much about sentiment and imag- 
ination here in New England, but as we grow older 
we are more willing to confess their influence on our 
Jives. 

We lived the usual college life ; we studied some, 
and learned much that was not in the books ; we 
lived up to the old traditions, sometimes to our cost; 
we played a game of foot-ball against the whole 
Sophomore Class; we rowed in the class races on 
the river, won a prize and made a record; we 
buried Analytics with due honors ; held our Ivy 
Day ; our dance on the green ; last chapel ; and 
finally smoked the pipe of peace. But there is only 
one other memorial of our class besides these posts 
now on the campus. It is the vine that climbs the 
right-hand post of the chapel door and reaches even 
to the windows. This has been a living witness of 
our student days since June of 1877. 

Against my wish, the college has singled me out 
of this class to speak for them to-day. There are 
fourteen worthier men, many of them bred to the 
business of talking. We have our lawyers, our 
stump speakers, and our legislators, and you have 
picked out the civil engineer. 

The Course in Civil Engineering was but a tem- 
porary episode in the History of old Bowdoin. It 
is most natural to think of a Bowdoin man as a 
lawyer, as a minister, as a Governor of the State. 
We do not expect many of them to be surveyors, 
builders of bridges and sewers. However, the little 
band of civil engineers that went from here during 
the period of about ten years are loyal to their col- 
lege and their good old Professor Vose. They 
cheer for Bowdoin as heartily as any minister or 
lawyer. They are (especially appreciative of the 
structural beauty of the college grounds. They 
rejoice that Architecture, Painting, and Sculpture 
are adorning their Alma Mater without detracting 
from her moral and intellectual beauty. 

'78 knows that campus, athletic field, and fine 
buildings are not the college ; we even suspect that 
foot-ball, base-ball, and athletic sports are not the 
whole thing. We know that Bowdoin has been 
growing in the real college work, the broad educa- 
tion of men, and we rejoice. Accept from us, then, 
this token of our good-will. We hope it does not 
mar the beauty of more costly gifts. If you can 
truly say that it looks in place and as though it 
might have been here always, we are satisfied. 

Professor Robinson rose to deliver the 
Address of Acceptance amid tremendous 
applause. 

ADDRESS OF ACCEPTANCE. 
Mr. Secretary and Class of 1878: 

In behalf of the college I accept this beautiful 
gateway. Three years ago a similar gift was pre- 
sented by the Class of 1875. I wish for your sakes 



that this one could be received with as fitting and 
memorable words as that one was, but you and all 
here know that such words come only from him 
who then spoke, and he is not now speaking, not 
because we did not want him to be but because he 
can decline a service with as much grace and 
effectiveness as he can perform it. 

But to those interested in correspondences and 
analogies and especially, as I hope, to the Class of 
1878 there may seem to be a certain appropriate- 
ness in the final selection of me for this service. 

The Class of 1878 began its college life and I 
my college teaching the same year. It is true that 
I did not begin my experimenting upon them, but 
the classes I taught previously, were doubtless 
somewhat awed by the fact that I had been an 
upperclassman to them, and you know we never 
quite get over that. 

But to '78 I was new, with no tradition to help 
me, and while I experimented at them they experi- 
mented with still greater freedom on me. And I 
always felt profoundly grateful to the class for one 
thing especially, and that is, that there were so few 
of them. For I am very sure that if it had been 
as large a class as many others, with correspond- 
ingly increased activity, my teaching career here at 
least would have come to an untimely end. I never 
have been able to account fully for that aggressive 
activity of '78. Some would doubtless account for 
it by saying that at that particular time, right after 
the famous "drill rebellion," when prophecies of the 
utter extinction of the college were rife, it took an 
extra amount of courage and resolution to come to 
Bowdoin. 

So while this memorial is theirs it is mine also. 
It reminds me of what they left undone. My inter- 
est in it is as great as theirs. And as I pass in and 
out through it in the few remaining years of my 
college pilgrimage I shall seem to see written on it 
the words : "In hoc signo vinci," which may be ren- 
dered, by one of those free translations for which 
the class was notorious, I finally escaped from 
this class. 

But all pleasantry aside, I am sure that no more 
fitting and appropriate memorial was ever erected on 
the college grounds, and the class is to be congrat- 
ulated, and I doubt not will be envied, by other 
classes for the opportunity it has had of erecting it. 

It is appropriate in location, in material, and in 
design. 

It is placed at what is and always has been the 
main entrance to the college grounds used by the 
undergraduates. For a hundred years and more 
the majority of the students have first stepped foot 
upon the campus at this point, and when, after the 
four years were ended, and the final packing up 
and departure were made it was through here that 
they got that last look of the place they loved so 
well. That view remains in your minds to-day as 
it does in the minds of so many others. Such is 
the place you have now so greatly beautified, and 
if as psychologists tell us, first and last impressions 
are most enduring and important, the thing you have 
done cannot be overestimated in its effect for good 
upon future generations of students. 

Instead of that old wooden gate, well adapted 
for a pasture, suggesting to very many of those first 
coming to college, that home employment they may 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



103 



have respected but did not love, you have given 
us this beautiful structure which at once turns the 
mind to the things a college stands for. 

Most appropriately also a gateway at such a 
place is made of bricks and iron, the construction 
materials of a working world, materials which rep- 
resent the solid practical things of life. 

Stone and bronze, used so effectively in that 
other gateway, were most appropriate to its posi- 
tion, but far less so to this. That is distinctively 
the graduate entrance to the college grounds. The 
chain which guards it rarely comes down except at 
commencement time to let the procession through as 
it goes to and from the graduation exercises. It 
stands especially for things done, for honors 
attained and to be preserved. Bronze and stone 
are most fitting to use for such a memorial. 

The college of to-day looks at the gateway with 
great admiration, but it rarely uses it on account 
of its location. Like the noble art building near 
which it stands it belongs to the college but also to 
the broader life outside and beyond the college. 

Which of these gateways will be more admired 
as works of art, may be an open question, but 
around which the precious memories of college life 
will cling most closely there can be no doubt. 

I do not feel at all competent to discuss its 
artistic qualities, and if I did this would be no place 
to do it, but there are certain things which impress 
me most favorably, and are in my judgment in 
perfect harmony with what a gateway should be at 
such a place. 

It is solid and square in design as all college life 
should be, and its two most important pillars do not 
stand independent of each other, but are bound 
solidly together by the iron arch, as all time col- 
lege interests should be. I like it also that there is 
no chain for the footways, no suggestion even of 
anything to close them. It emphasizes the perfect 
freedom of Bowdoin College. Ingress and egress 
to it may be by a narrow way but it is never closed. 
Its use depends only on that free will and choice 
with which every man is endowed. Whether the 
narrowness of the footways, hardly allowing of 
the passage of two abreast, marks the belief of '78 
that the college should never be co-educational I do 
not know, but even if it does I am not now pre- 
pared to disapprove of even such a minor detail. 

But the most symbolic thing about it. and the 
one I approve of most is the college seal springing 
from the highest point of the arch, as though con- 
trolling and dominating the whole design. It is the 
general college interest which gives unity and 
strength to college life. In these days when the 
pressure of the secret societies seems to grow 
stronger and stronger, upon the undergraduate, he 
should be constantly reminded of the college as a 
whole. 

On that, other beautiful gateway the college seal 
is present on a part of the design, but not a con- 
spicuous part. The great stone pillars thrust 
themselves through and above it ; for the college 
idea very properly does not and should not domi- 
nate the graduate as it ought to the undergradu- 
ate. The graduate world is not the narrower col- 
lege world. But he will never enter as he should 
into the broader world beyond the college unless 
he has allowed the full college world to act upon 
him. 



When the immortal Lincoln died, one of the sor- 
rowing friends around his bedside exclaimed, "He 
now belongs to the ages." So every great thing 
done and every great man who does it belong to 
the ages. No locality can appropriate them. This 
college cannot train men for the ages if it allows 
their college life to be controlled by anything but 
the broadest spirit of college unity. This gateway 
will, I believe, constantly teach this lesson. 

Old Bowdoin's gateway is massive and tall, 

Its entrance is narrow but open to all. 
And over this portal forever shall stand, 

The seal of the college, like a guiding hand. 
And each of her children as he passes through. 

Will learn there the lesson, so old, so new, 
"Whatever you do, be it great or small. 

Let the seal of the college stand over it all." 

These are some of the reasons why I look upon 
this gift with so much interest and approval. For 
it does what you wanted to do ; stands as a memo- 
rial of your college days ; serves as a place for future 
meetings of the class on that spot where you first 
set foot on the college campus. But it does also 
what we who work here wanted done ; strengthens 
the present college ; makes it more attractive to 
those who should come to it; and thus helps to 
extend into other lives those influences which were 
so important in your own. 

The Class of 1878 was small in numbers, and its 
death rate since graduation has been unusually 
high, but it was always a class which did things, 
and things which were worth while. This is one of 
them. You have earned from your college mother 
commendation, than which none could be higher. 

"Well done, good and faithful servant." 

As her representative here to-day I give it to 
you. I also unite with her in the hope that for 
you all, 

When at last beyond life's tide 

You reach that port on the further side, 
The gate of peace may stand open wide ; 

Like this you leave behind you. 



THE PRESIDENT'S RECEPTION. 

On Wednesday evening, President and 
Mrs. Hyde gave their usual annual reception 
to the Senior Class, the alumni and friends of 
the college. The affair was a very pleasant 
one. A large number of guests were present, 
and the greetings they gave and received from 
each other and the President, showed the gen- 
uine pleasure they felt at being able to meet 
one another again under the influence of "Old 
Bowdoin." 



ALUMNI ASSOCIATION. 

The annual meeting of the Alumni Asso- 
ciation was held in the Alumni Room, Hub- 
bard Hall, Thursday morning. There was a

lin Payson, '76, in the chair. A committee 
consisting of Professor Chapman, Thomas J. 
Emery, '68, and Eben Freeman, '85, was 
appointed to look after the vacancies on the 
board of overseers. Another committee on 
vacancies on this board consisting of George 
M. Seiders, '72, Mvles Standish, '75, and

On Thursday, June 23, occurred the

appealed to the alumni to subscribe to the Haw- 
thorne Memorial Fund. Many of the speakers paid 
glowing tributes to the late Professor Egbert C. 
Smyth. Edward M. Merrill in behalf of the Class 
of 1874 presented a scholarship to the college, the 
sum of which was not announced. Frederick W. 
Pickard. in behalf of the Class of '94, presented the 
college with $2,000, to be used without restriction 
and to be paid in five yearly payments. Every one 
was well satisfied with the dinner and it was cer- 
tainly a fitting culmination to the exercises of 
Commencement Week.

QUILL PRIZE COMPETITION.

by Professor Mitchell, Brunswick, Me. 

Editor-in-Chief. 

Owing to the unusual amount of material 
on hand many of the minor articles had to be 
omitted. Editor-in-Chief. 

Owing to the fact that the several fitting 
schools had not been heard from when this 
paper went to press, we are unable to print 
the names of the students who will enter Bow- 
doin in the fall. Judging, however, from the 
number of men who took the examinations at 
the college, we predict a very large entering 
class. 

1904 DECENNIAL FUND. 

The Class of 1904 has appointed a commit- 
tee to be known as the trustees of the Class of 
1904 decennial fund. These trustees are E. 
P. D. Hathaway, P. M. Clark and M. A. Bry- 
ant. They have secured pledges which at the 
end of ten years, will amount to $2,500 and 
that amount will be presented to the college at 
that time. This system of decennial funds 
was started last year by the Class of 1903 
which, at the end of ten years, expects to pre- 
sent $3,000 to the college. 



FRESHMAN BANQUET. 

The Class of 1907 held their Freshman banquet

Orient Delayed. 



The Board of Editors owes 



an apology to the Orient 
subscribers, inasmuch as this issue is two 
weeks late. The fault was not ours, how- 
ever, as the proof directed to the editor-in- 
chief was lost in the mails and not recovered 
until a very short time ago. As this is the 
first time such a thing has happened in the 
history of the present Board, at least, we trust 
that our subscribers will be lenient. 



Undergraduate 

and 

Commencement. 



One of the things — per- 
haps the greatest — which 
impresses itself on an 
undergraduate who re- 
mains at the college through Commencement, 
is an increased appreciation of the true great- 
ness of Bowdoin and the strength of college 



ties. To see the alumni gather from far and 
near — the venerable graduates of years ago 
with infirm step and gray locks, but whose 
eyes sparkle with the fire of youth as he 
beholds the beautiful structures which were 
unknown in his day — the young man with 
brisk, active step and who has as a recent 
graduate just begun to feel the flush of early 
success — the distinguished men whose names 
are known throughout the nation — all these 
who are yet glad to come back and pay their 
tribute of honor to the old college and to again 
greet old friends — these are the things which 
must impress the undergraduate — things 
which make his heart swell with pride and 
enthusiasm for his college. For this reason 
alone the spending of Commencement by the 
undergraduate at the college is indeed worth 
while. It teaches him the worth of the insti- 
tution which he is to later call Alma Mater, 
shows him the strength and significance of 
college friendships, and above all, gives him 
an increased love and veneration for Bowdoin. 



New Courses. 



The Orient wishes to call 
the attention of the under- 
graduates to the new courses in English and 
Debating which are to be offered next year 
under Mr. Foster. The courses are very 
important ones to the men who hope to rep- 
resent Bowdoin's debating interests and it is 
highly essential that a large number of fellows 
go into these courses if we are to beat 
Amherst on her own grounds next year. 



Larger Endowment 



President Hyde in his 



yearly report points out the 
great lack of the college in this transitory 
stage of its existence from an old to a new 
order of things to be a sufficient endowment. 
As this number of the Orient will reach more 
of the alumni than any other, we wish to call 
attention to this lack at this time. If Bowdoin 
is not to be distanced by such dangerous rivals 
as Amherst, Williams and the like, she must 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



107 



have more money to meet her ever-increasing 
needs. It is the duty of the alumnus to make 
some sacrifice for an institution which has 
done so much towards developing' his latent 
powers, drawing out the best there is within 
him, and starting him well on in the race for 
success. Bowdoin is worthy of great sacrifices 
by her sons and we all hope she will not have 
to face this danger much longer. 



As Others See Us. 



As this is the last 
issue of the Orient 
before the summer vacation, it may be well to 
repeat what has often been expressed in these 
columns. To a more or less degree, people 
judge a college by the actions and presence of 
the small number of men whom they happen 
to meet. We have judged other colleges that 
way ourselves very often. This means that 
the foreign reputation of Bowdoin College 
depends to a considerable extent on the man- 
ner in which we represent it. There are things 
here which could and will no doubt be 
improved in time, the same is true everywhere. 
There is no need to emphasize that side. On 
the other hand, in beauty of scenery, in the fine 
buildings, prominent among which are Hub- 
bard Hall, the Art Building and Science 
Building, in the learned corps of instructors, 
in genuine college spirit, in many other qual- 
ities, few colleges can equal Bowdoin. It is 
this true Bowdoin spirit which we want to 
carry away and diffuse this vacation. Another 
matter of importance comes up in connection 
with this. Many of us will meet men who are 
planning to go to college next fall. Be on the 
look-out for good men of every kind, good 
foot-ball players, good track men, good base- 
ball material, good debaters, good men in any 
line and persuade them to come to Bowdoin. 
When you meet such a man don't talk your 
fraternity to him, don't try to pledge him 
then and there, but get him first of all inter- 
ested in Bowdoin. And then, when the 
proper time presents itself, you will be at leis- 



ure to talk your fraternity. Let your motto 
be "Bowdoin first and always." 



Class of 1904. 



One more Commencement 
has come and gone, one 
more class, the Class of '04, has passed from 
out the portals of "Old Bowdoin." The mem- 
bers of the outgoing class carry with them 
the best wishes of the Faculty and undergrad- 
uates for their future success. During the 
course the class has showed that it is com- 
posed of men who are loyal to the college. In 
scholarship the class has taken an enviable 
position among the other classes, and its rela- 
tions with the college instruction and the gov- 
ernment have been of the most pleasant kind. 
We congratulate them upon the successful 
completion of their college course and we con- 
gratulate them upon their pleasant and inter- 
esting Commencement Week. And now that 
they have gone out from among us, we give 
them, with all good fellowship, a hearty old 
Saxon "God speed," wishing them every suc- 
cess in the paths of life which they may follow, 
and expressing a hope that they will ever 
remain true to the high standards and tradi- 
tions of their Alma Mater. 



BOWDOIN MEN IN MAINE POLITICS 

In the Republican County Conventions that have 
thus far been held, Bowdoin men have been promi- 
nent among the nominees. In Lincoln County W. 
B. Clarke, '99, was named for senator ; O. D. Cast- 
ner, '79, for judge of probate; and W. M. Hilton, 
'91, for county attorney. In Androscoggin County 
F. M. Drew, '58. was renominated for judge of 
probate ; and in Somerset County, Augustine Sim- 
mons, '71, was nominated for judge of probate. In 
Franklin County, Carleton P. Merrill, '96, was 
renominated for county treasurer. In Kennebec 
County, F. L. Dutton, '99, presided over the con- 
vention, and J. C. Minot, '96, was secretary, and 
Thomas Leigh, '85, was nominated for a third term 
as county attorney. 



COX WINS THE SILVER CUP. 

The Silver Loving Cup which was offered by H. 
W. Varney to the member of the base-ball team 
who had !the best general average, has been 
awarded to J. F. Cox, captain of the team.

CAPTAINS OF THE TENNIS AND BASE- 
BALL TEAMS. 

At a recent meeting of the men entitled to tennis 
"B's" this year, H. G. Tobey, '06, of Clinton, Mass., 
was elected captain of next year's team. Tobey 
made the team this year playing in the Longwood, 
Maine, and Vermont tournaments. He also won 
the college championship from S. T. Dana, captain 
of this year's team. On the same day the base-ball 
team elected J. A. Clarke, '05, of Damariscotta cap- 
tain of next year's nine. Clarke made the team last 
season and has played left field since. 



COLLEGE MEN'S POLITICAL ASSOCIATION. 

A statement of the plans and purposes of the 
College Men's Political Association of New York 
City, has been received by the Orient this week. 
This is strictly a non-partisan association formed 
with the purpose of aiding college graduates to step 
into places of usefulness in the political life of the 
community. The Association is in touch with all 
the important political organizations of the city, and 
can be of real assistance to anyone wishing to learn 
practical politics. Under the leadership of this 
organization it is hoped that the large numbers of 
college men who take no part in politics may be 
brought in closer touch with political affairs which 
may be the better and the cleaner for the connection 
of these college men with them. The Association 
further urges the formation of a political club at 
Bowdoin under its direction. Under such a club 
talks on practical politics by active men may be 
given and the undergraduate brought to the realiza- 
tion of his duty before he becomes too heedless. 
The Orient hopes to see some one take up this 
work and establish such a club next year, that may 
co-operate with the Association. Anyone wishing 
further information in regard to this should com- 
municate with Mr. Harry D. Nims, 32 Nassau 
Street, Room 552, New York.

College IRotes. 



The Classes of 1898, 1900, 1901, 1902 held well 
attended reunions at New Meadows Inn, Thurs- 
day night. 

Romilly Johnson, '06, left June 28, in company 
with his father, for a three months' trip abroad. 
They will visit France, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, 
and England. 

The Deutscher Verein held their farewell banquet 
at New Meadows Inn, Wednesday noon. A large 
number of alumni were present and a most enjoya- 
ble time was had by all. 

The Greek letter fraternities held their annual 
banquets after the President's reception on 
Wednesday evening. They were all largely attended 
and very pleasant functions. 

The one-hundredth anniversary of the birth of 
Nathaniel Hawthorne was celebrated Thursday by 
the citizens of Salem. It will be celebrated by the 
citizens of Concord July 4th. 

The necrology record of Bowdoin for the past 
year shows a total of fifty-three deaths divided as 
follows : Academic graduates 33, medical graduates 
16, and honorary graduates 4. 

The Class of 1S89 was entertained by Professor 
G. T. Files at his home, Wednesday. Fifteen of 
the class were present and all went away loud in 
their praise of Professor Files as an entertainer. 

At the Delta Kappa Epsilon Chapter House the 
fraternity has on exhibition the autograph letter 
which Hawthorne wrote to the Bowdoin Chapter 
on being elected an honorary member of the fra- 
ternity. 

A movement is on foot to erect a memorial to 
the late Elijah Kellogg. It is proposed to place 
this memorial in the cemetery at Harpswell where 
his body is interred. Already quite a sum has been 
subscribed and the full amount seems forthcoming. 

Professor Little, who has been granted leave of 
absence for a year, plans to spend the time between 
foreign travel, the study of library methods among 
American colleges and universities, and the prepa- 
ration of a series of library histories planned by the 
Library of Congress. Frank H. Whitmore will act 
as chairman during Prof. Little's absence.

The Class of 1854 held their 50th anniversary at 
the Falmouth Hotel, Thursday night. Nine of 
the fifteen living members of that class were 
present. The Class of 1845 also held their reunion 
there. 

A base-ball game was played on Whittier Field, 
Wednesday afternoon, by picked teams from the 
alumni. Among the old-timers who played were 
Toe Williamson, Kelley, Stetson, Bob Hull, Ralph 
Plaisted, Dunlap and Stanwood. Dr. Whittier 
officiated as umpire and his decisions were often 
questioned. When this paper went to press the 
runs had not been added up. 

Mr. Edmund Clarence Stedman, of New York, 
has presented the library, on the occasion of the 
hundredth anniversary of the birth of Nathaniel 
Hawthorne, with an autograph copy of "Hawthorne 
and Other Poems." The poem which gives the 
book its title Mr. Stedman read before the Society 
of the Phi Beta Kappa, Harvard University, June 
28, 1877. This small volume, important enough in 
itself, has an additional interest coming as it does 
from the author at the time of the Hawthorne 
centennial. 

The Class of 1904 held their farewell Senior 
banquet at the Castle Casco, Freeport, last Thurs- 
day evening. About forty-five members of the 
class were present and a most enjoyable time was 
spent by all. The committee in charge of the 
affair was composed of Wallace Powers, William 
Coan, and Henry Beverage. Emery Beane, Presi- 
dent of the Class, was toast-master, and the follow- 
ing toasts were responded to: "The Present," Her- 
bert H. Oakes; "The Past," Myrton A. Bryant; 
"The Future," William E. Lunt. 

On exhibition at the Hubbard Library is a col- 
lection of historical books and papers which are con- 
nected with Hawthorne. Among them is the com- 
mencement program of the Class of 1825, containing 
the names of Longfellow and Hawthorne ; the cata- 
logue issued the year Longfellow and Hawthorne 
were Freshmen : and the first edition of the follow- 
ing of Hawthorne's works, "Marble Faun," 
"Transformation," the English title for the "Mar- 
ble Faun," "Life of Franklin Pierce," "Mosses from 
an Old Manse," "The Gentle Boy," with an original 
illustration, and a fac-simile of the title page of the 
first edition of "Fanshawe."

The undersigned have examined the accounts of 
the base-ball, track and tennis manager and believe 
the balances as stated by them to be correct. We 
have been unable to verify any of these accounts 
absolutely on account of many missing vouchers and 
a considerable number which in small amount do 
not agree with the expenditures stated.

FOOT-BALL. 



Bowdoin, 23; Fort Preble, o. 

Bowdoin opened its foot-ball season for the year 
1904, Saturday, September 24, with the Fort Preble 
team, and succeeded in defeating the soldiers by the 
score 23 to o. The game was rather interesting, as 
the visitors had a heavy team and at times made a 
good stand against the Bowdoin men. They were 
not able, however, to cope with Bowdoin in quick- 
ness and in knowledge of the game, despite the fact 
that they were superior in weight. 

The game opened with Chapman kicking off to 
Nelson on Preble's 18-yard line. He made 10 
yards before he was downed. Raynor made three 
yards, Nelson three and then Nelson made six more. 
Heaney was thrown back for a loss and Raynor 
made three, but Preble was then held for downs. 
The ball was at this time in the center of the field. 
Chapman made a 25-yard run, but it was not 
allowed, as both teams were off side. Kinsman 
made half a yard, and Chapman made the distance 
on the next play, Finn went through for five 
yards and Chapman made seven more on an end 
play. McGraw then made 14 yards on a quarter- 
back run. Two more rushes carried the ball within 
two yards of the goal, and on the next play Kins- 
man took it over for the first touchdown. McGraw 
kicked the goal. 

Chapman kicked off to Heaney, who was 
downed on the three-yard line. Fort Preble was 
soon held for downs on their 8-yard line just as 
time was called. 

In the second half Raynor kicked to Hawkes- 
worth, who made a good gain. Kinsman made 25 
yards around the end. Chapman was given the ball 
on the next play and broke away for. a 65-yard run 
and a touchdown. McGraw missed the goal. 

Chapman kicked to Raynor. He made 13 yards, 
but Preble was immediately held for downs. Bow- 
doin fumbled, however, and Preble punted 25 yards 
to McGraw, who took the ball to within 10 yards 
of the line. Kinsman took the ball over for the 
third touchdown on two plays. McGraw kicked 
the goal. 

McGraw kicked to Dickenson. He fumbled, 
however, and Drummond secured the ball on the 
22-yard line. Chapman made four, Kinsman five 
and Chapman 12, to within a yard of the line, Kins- 
man took it over on the next play. 

McGraw kicked off to Sylvester. Dickenson and 
Heaney each made five yards and then Dickenson 
made 20 yards around the end for Preble's biggest 
gain of the game just as the whistle blew. 

The line-up : 

Bowdoin. Fort Preble. 

J. B. Drummond, l.e r.e., Miller-Sullivan. 

Finn, l.t r.t., Clift. 



Sanborn, l.g r.g., Leavitt.

halves. Attendance — ^50. 



Exeter, ii; Bowdoin, o. 

Bowdoin lost the foot-ball game with Exeter 
last Saturday, by a score of 11 to in a very inter- 
esting game of foot-ball, despite the fact that we 
lost. The 'varsity played a fine game and no criti- 
cism can be offered in any way. The simple fact 
is that the heavy team that represented Exeter, this 
year, was able to make gains that Bowdoin's lighter 
line was unable to withstand. 

Bowdoin, however, played a fast and plucky 
game throughout, and at times made sensational 
plays that were a credit to any team. Kinsman, in 
particular, played a game that was remarkable, sav- 
ing what would have been certain touchdowns at 
two different times. He also made some good 
gains during the game, at one time going around 
right end for a 25-yard run that would have been a 
touchdown but for a magnificent tackle by Exeter. 

The game opened with Bankard of Exeter kick- 
ing off to McGraw, who advanced the ball five 
yards from the 7-yard line. Finn made six yards 
and Chapman one. Finn failed on the next try and 
Exeter secured the ball on a fumble. Peyton for 
Exeter, made four yards, Hart the same, H. Jones 
i l / 2 , Peyton three, Hart two, and Selden one-half. 
Cooney fumbled the ball at this time within a yard 
of a touchdown, Kinsman securing it after it had 
fallen behind the goal posts and taking it down the 
field 25 yards before being downed. 

Kinsman made two yards more and Chapman 
punted 40 yards to T. Jones. After a two- 
yard and a one-yard gain by Cooney, T. Jones was 
thrown back and Bowdoin secured the ball on 
downs. Kinsman was thrown back and Exeter 
secured the ball on downs. Then Exeter steadily 
advanced the ball down the field for a touchdown, 
the ball being taken over by Hart within a minute 
from the call of time. T. Jones failed in an 
attempt to kick a goal.

BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



Exeter kicked off to McGraw, who made 25 
yards. Chapman lost five yards and Bowdoin was 
forced to punt. This ended the half. 

In the second half Chapman kicked to Hart on 
the 10-yard line, who made 40 yards. At this time 
Exeter was forced to punt, McGraw taking the ball 
on the two-yard line. Kinsman made 20 yards 
around right end. Exeter was penalized three 
yards here, but soon secured the ball on 
downs. From this time the Exeter team made 
steady gains down the field for another touchdown. 
Bankard kicked the goal. 

During the remainder of the game the ball was 
in the possession of both teams for an equal portion 
of the time. Bowdoin held for downs once, and 
was afterward forced to punt. The game ended 
with the ball in Exeter's possession on Bowdoin's 
27-yard line. 

While it is not pleasing to lose the game, it 
cannot be said that the result is discouraging to 
Bowdoin supporters. Bowdoin played fast, aggres- 
sive ball, but could not be expected to win against 
the odds. Exeter has a team both in weight and 
knowledge of the game, that is capable of winning 
from some of the big college teams. The line-up : 

Exeter. Bowdoin. 

Vaughn, l.e I.e., J. B. Drummond. 

MacFayden, l.g l.g., Garcelon. 

Bankard, c c, Sanborn.

20- and 15-minute halves.

BASE-BALL. 



Sophs., 23; Freshmen, 6. 

The Sophomores and Freshmen played their first 
game of base-ball on the Delta, last Saturday morn- 
ing, which proved a somewhat quiet occasion for 
the annual inter-class affair. The score was decid- 
edly one sided, the Sophomores winning 23 to 6. 
The Freshmen seemed to have a better team than 
the Sophs., but were a trifle weak in the box. 

The Sophomores, however, had some good men 
on hand, Piper doing the pitching and Lawrence 
the catching. Bower at third, who played on the 
Bates team last year, played at third, and proved a 
valuable acquisition for the Sophs. 

There was an absence of class yelling and no 
signs of a "scrap" at any time. The Freshmen did 
not feel that they had much opportunity for cheer- 



ing, and the Sophomores did not think it was 
necessary.

Communication. 



One of the first things which a Bowdoin 
Freshman should learn to do, is to work for 
his college ; that is, to do everything in his 
power to make her name known and honored 
on all sides. Not only should he be careful 
that he does nothing to bring disgrace upon 
her; he should make every effort to have his 
own name one of which she may be proud, 
both now and in the years to come. Further, 
he can and ought to begin early in doing 
much practical good to Bowdoin by getting 
other fellows interested in the college. Invite 
your friends down, Freshmen, especially if 
you come from outside the State, show them 
the college and talk Bowdoin into them day 
and night. Get them so interested in the 
place that they want to see it, and can't resist 
your invitation, and finally can't think of 
going to any other college. 

P. R. Andrews, 1906. 



Y. M. C. A. RECEPTION. 

On Thursday evening, Sept. 29, the Y. M. 
C. A. of Bowdoin College tendered their 
annual reception to the enteringclass. In spite 
of stormy weather the attendance exceeded 
that of previous years, though the upper class 
men were more in evidence than the Fresh- 
men. This year the reception was held in the 
Alumni Room of Hubbard Hall, instead of 
Banister Hall, where last year's reception was 
held. During the evening an address was 
made by President Hyde who extended a cor- 
dial welcome to the Freshmen and congratu- 
lated the Association on the success of its 
work. A liberal collation was served, after 
which the Freshmen had an opportunity to 
meet many of the faculty. Among those who 
were present were President Hyde, Professor 



THE BLEACHERS. 

Bleachers with a seating capacity of three hun- 
dred and twenty are being built opposite the 
Hubbard Grand Stand on Whittier Athletic Field 
at the expense of the college. The bleachers will 
be nine rows high the same as the Grand Stand. 
They are being constructed so that they can be 
readily taken down and stored under the Grand 
Stand during the winter. It is the intention of the 
college to add another section next year if it is 
needed. The bleachers will balance the general 
aspect of the oval and will add materially to the 
beauty of our already unique athletic field. The 
students cannot show too much gratitude to the 
college and to General Hubbard for their liberality 
in providing such accommodations for visiting teams. 

It should be a source of pride to every Bowdoin 
man to know that no college in the United States 
can offer more up-to-date accommodations to visit- 
ing teams and their friends than Bowdoin. 



BOWDOIN NIGHT. 

Friday evening, September 23, was observed as 
Bowdoin Night, and surely a larger crowd never 
was gathered in Memorial Hall so early in the 
year. Wallace C. Philoon, '05, captain of the foot- 
ball team, presided and after a few introductory 
remarks called upon James G. Lathrop, coach of the 
track team and physical director of the foot-ball 
team. Mr. Lathrop, having had considerable expe- 
rience in addressing Bowdoin mass-meetings, 
started right to the point and urged every man to 
come out for the foot-ball • team. He said and 
rightfully said that Bowdoin has plenty of good 
foot-ball material and that it was a disgrace for a 
man to stay away from the gridiron when he ought 
to be on it. He also urged every man who did not 
go out for foot-ball to come out for track and get 
an early start on the spring training. William 
Frye White, '97, the next speaker, dwelt in a humor- 
ous vein on the customs which were in vogue ten 
years ago. He aroused considerable enthusiasm 
when he said that Bowdoin could boast of some- 
thing which no other college in the country could 
or would ever be able to boast of, namely : that of 
having two of her sons at the head of the Judicial 
and Legislative departments of the government, and 
another second in the Executive Department at the 
same time. It was the time when Hon. Thomas 
B. Reed, '60, was Speaker of the House of Repre- 
sentatives, Hon. Melville W. Fuller, '53, Chief Jus- 
tice of the United States, and Hon. William P.

BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



Frye, '50, President pro tern, of the Senate and Act- 
ing Vice-President. Mr. White also voiced the sen- 
timents of Mr. Lathrop in urging every man to 
come out for foot-ball. 

Edward S. Anthoine, '02, spoke for those who 
lacked the physique to play foot-ball but who had 
the spirit and enthusiasm to cheer the team on to 
victory. 

Edgar A. Kaharl, '99, was the next man to 
respond. He urged the undergraduates to give the 
team their moral support and the manager their 
financial support. He also laid particular stress on 
men attending daily practice and accompanying the 
team on out-of-town trips. 

Coach McClave was next called upon and the 
tremendous applause he received clearly showed 
how popular he has made himself with the college. 
He said that he had often heard of the proverbial 
Bowdoin spirit and after seeing the demonstration 
connected with the observance of Bowdoin night 
really believed it was true, but he did not think any 
of it was shown on the foot-ball field after review- 
ing the work of the team for the past three years. 
He said that it was disgraceful for a college like 
Bowdoin to be defeated by any of the other col- 
leges in Maine. Bunter Hunt, '02, urged the men 
on the team to keep strict training. He also 
emphasized the fact that the undergraduates should 
make it a point to see that the foot-ball men did 
keep strict training and that they were properly 
cared for. Captain Philoon was the last speaker 
and he pointed out how absolutely necessary it was 
that every man should come out for the team. The 
second observance of Bowdoin night was brought to 
a fitting close by the singing of college songs under 
the direction of Ryan and Denning and the render- 
ing of class yells. The committee in charge of 
the exercises consisted of Dr. F. N. Whittier, Phi- 
loon and White, '05, and Sewall, '06.

COLLEGE JURY. 

The first meeting of the year of the college jury 
was held in Hubbard Hall last week. The jury for 
the present year has organized as follows : E. W. 
Hamilton, Kappa Sigma, foreman ; W. J. Norton, 
Beta Theta Pi, secretary; W. S. Cushing, Delta 
Kappa Epsilon; R. N. Cushing, Psi Upsilon; R. E. 
Hall. Zeta Psi; G. H. Stone, Theta Delta Chi; W. 
M. Sanborn, Alpha Delta Phi; P. K. Greene, Delta 
Upsilon: H. S. Hill, non-fraternity; H. A. Ler- 
mond. Class of 1905; E. A. Duddy, Class of 1907; 
H. B. T. Chandler, Class of 1908. 



"DAY OF PURIFICATION." 

Last Monday was the anniversary of the now 
obsolete "Night Shirt Parade." In its place the 
Sophomores introduced a new custom which is 
known as the "Day of Purification." The ceremony 
began at chapel when every Freshman was obliged 
to crawl in on his hands and knees. During the 
day they were kept busy gathering wood for a huge 
bonfire which was built in front of the chapel. 
Since the "Night Shirt Parade" is a thing of the 
past, the Freshmen this year wore "sackcloth and 
ashes" in token of their penitence. The evening 
was pleasantly spent in speeches and funny stunts 
by the members of 1908. The "Day of Purifica- 
tion" is certainly a fitting substitute for the "Night 
Shirt Parade." 



BOWDOIN BAND. 



The Bowdoin College Band, which played such 
an important part in the college life last year, has 
again begun practice. Pike, '07, is leader, and Stet- 
son, '06, is manager. Only three of the members 
graduated last year. There are now fifteen mem- 
bers and the opening of the Medical School will 
bring back four or five more. It is to be hoped 
that all the members of the Freshman Class who 
have any musical ability will try for the band and 
the whole college should be willing to furnish finan- 
cial support to this worthy organization.

future be as honorable and successful as the 
past. 



A New Year. 



We have entered upon a 
new college year. To one 
and all the Orient extends a hearty welcome. 
Not unwillingly the editors enter upon the 
duties connected with the Editorial Sanctum, 
and renew the promise made when they 
received the Editorial Quill, namely, to con- 
sider all matters of interest to the college for 
the best good of all. We extend the right 
hand of welcome to the Class of 1908 and 
congratulate them upon their choice in com- 
ing to Bowdoin and the spirit which they 
have shown in beginning the work of the 
year. At times during the year we may find 



it a part of our duty to give our Freshmen 
some valuable though gratuitous advice, but 
at present will indulge in none. We will 
simply say conduct yourselves as men, and 
you will find the first year of college experi- 
ences both replete with pleasure and profit. 
We give you up to your own manly natures 
and trust to you as natural beings to show 
yourselves at once worthy of being recorded 
in the ranks of Old Bowdoin. 



„ _ To lose a game to a 

Exeter Oarne. ' „ " , , . . , , 

Prep school is indeed 

humiliating and mortifying in the extreme, 
but to lose to a team such as represented 
Exeter last Saturday is no disgrace. The 
defeat was not due to the lack of coaching, 
not due to the lack of snap or grit on the 
part of the team, but it was due to the fact 
that Exeter's team was stronger than ours. 
They outweighed our men, man for man. 
The manner in which the "rooters" responded 
to the appeals made to their patriotism was 
a source of satisfaction to us all. No dis- 
credit can be laid against Coach McClave, 
Captain Philoon or his team, for considering 
the weight of the men who compose the team, 
their work is above criticism. 



New Members. 



We are pleased to 
announce the election to 

the board of Harry P. Winslow, '06, and 

Harold E. Wilson, '07. 



Porter and Oxford. 



It is with genuine regret 
that the Orient loses 
from its board one of its most valuable and 
faithful members in the withdrawal from 
college of David R. Porter. As is well 
known Mr. Porter enters Oxford and his 
removal there obliges him to sever his con- 
nection with the college weekly, as with other 
interests at Bowdoin with which he was iden- 
tified. Mr. Porter sailed for England the 
26th of September. He was undecided at 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



121 



the time of his departure as to just what 
courses he would pursue at the English Uni- 
versity. The best wishes of the Orient go 
out to Mr. Porter, along with those of every 
man in Bowdoin, in wishing for him all the 
success and happiness that his splendid man- 
hood and ability will undoubtedly assure him. 



New Hymnals. 



The Orient is glad to see 



the new hymnals in the 
chapel this fall. It is something that has 
been greatly needed and one which adds 
greatly to the interest and impressiveness of 
our chapel services. Now that we have these 
hymnals, every man should take part in the 
services which these books make possible. 
Only by all doing so can the results which 
were intended be secured. The books are 
finely arranged and were of considerable 
expense, and should be made use of in read- 
ing and handled carefully in order that they 
may be preserved for a long time to come. 
We are glad to notice that this is the attitude 
of most of the men and it is hoped that the 
same will continue. 



Plea for a 
Second Eleven. 



Is it not deplorable that 
Bowdoin's call for men on 
the foot-ball field has not 
been more generously answered? When we 
consider that such prep, schools as Exeter, 
Groton and St. Marks, who cannot count as 
many students as Bowdoin, keep four elevens 
in the field during the entire season, is it too 
much to expect Bowdoin to do as well. A 
good second eleven is essential to a good 'var- 
sity. In the recent history of athletics at 
Bowdoin the spirit has centered in "The men 
who wear the 'B' or are about to." If we 
are to turn out winning teams we must go 
further and use every effort to make a strong 
second eleven. To do this three things are 
necessary; competition, a schedule and a 
second team coach. For the past two years a 
schedule has not been arranged, the manage- 



ment say, because second teams sent out from 
the college have brought discredit by being 
continuously defeated by state preparatory 
schools. This only shows that Bowdoin never 
had a good second eleven. Is it impossible? 
Nonsense! Bowdoin has two hundred and 
seventy-five students, deduct a 'varsity squad 
of fifteen. Can't a student body of two 
hundred and sixty men turn out a team to 
defeat any prep, school team in the State? 
Certainly they can with a slight display of 
energy. By doing this, good 'varsity material 
would be developed. Besides, by sending 
teams to play preparatory schools, the play- 
ers would become acquainted with promising 
men and draw them to their college. This 
year the college can supply all three essentials 
to a good second. Sixty suits are in the 
store-room, the management will arrange a 
schedule and Coach Lathrop is on the field and 
glad to give the second his undivided atten- 
tion. Now, Bowdoin men, show your spirit. 
Come out for the second, third, and fourth 
elevens. You will not only learn the game of 
foot-ball which every college man should 
know and get some pleasant trips, but you 
will help place the Bowdoin 'varsity where it 
belongs, the champions of the State. 



Formation of The ° RIENT wishes to call 

Political Clubs. t ^ le attention of the under- 
graduate body to a com- 
munication from the Young Men's Political 
Association of New York City, published in 
the last commencement number. The object 
of this association is the development of a 
better knowledge of political affairs among 
college men, who it is hoped, will therefore 
take a more active interest in such things. 
By arousing a more intimate knowledge with 
the inner workings of our political system it 
is thought that college men will be able to do a 
great deal towards making them cleaner and 
better. The Association urges the formation 
of political clubs in Bowdoin in order to study 



J22 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



more thoroughly the great questions of the 
hour. This fall, just when the great presi- 
dential campaign is holding our attention, 
seems a very opportune time for the establish- 
ment of such clubs. The Orient hopes that 
some enterprising fellows will start the work 
at the earliest possible moment. 

Sophomore The appearance of Fresh- 

Pranks, man Proclamations stuck 
on the sides of the college buildings, 
and the campaign flag Saturday morning 
called forth a storm of pleasantry and protest. 
We feel, as every one else must feel, that 
such pranks as these are an outrage. They 
are an eyesore to every one who passes them. 
We would recommend censuring the guilty 
ones, but this new outrage is so far beneath 
the dignity of men, that the use of the cen- 
sure, an instrument intended for serious pur- 
poses only, seems entirely inappropriate. That 
such pranks as these are beneath the dignity 
of college men, is evident, and the only rem- 
edy for it is a restriction of the censure for 
more serious methods of punishment. 



Track. 



For the first time in its his- 
tory, Bowdoin has an 
experienced trainer upon the grounds during 
the fall term. Considerable sacrifice has been 
necessary to have Coach Lathrop with us this 
fall. Therefore the undergraduates should 
show due appreciation of the importance of 
this preliminary training and every fellow 
who aspires to a track "B" should be out in 
his jersey and trunks working hard. Only a 
very few track athletes ever win points at 
their first attempt. Such men as do are excep- 
tions. By far the greater part of our track 
athletes have been developed through years of 
hard and faithful drudgery, just such work as 
this fall training proves to be. 

A fall Handicap Meet has been arranged 
and this ought to be productive of much good. 
Much is looked for in the lower classes and it 



is hoped that all will turn out and give Cap- 
tain Denning and Coach Lathrop the hearty 
support which they so much deserve. 



Y. n. C. A. The Y. M. C. A. recep- 

Receptton. tion last Thursday even- 
ing was an unusually pleasant social function. 
The association is to be congratulated upon 
the attendance of so large a number of upper 
classmen and of so representative a portion of 
the college faculty. The Freshmen, of course, 
are always expected to be in the majority at 
the reception given in their honor, but last 
Thursday evening all classes were exception- 
ally well represented. The Y. M. C. A. is the 
most potent unifying agency in our college 
life, and these annual receptions, though often 
referred to disparagingly by some, neverthe- 
less play no small part in preserving the unity 
of the spirit in our college life. 



Debating. 



The Debating Course this 
year under the direction 
of Mr. Foster is becoming very popular and 
it is right that it should be. Last year we 
won from Amherst and we must win it this 
year. We lost two men from last year's 
team by graduation and their places will have 
to be filled. Now is your opportunity, you 
who don't play foot-ball, and you who do, 
every one who has got a voice and a head 
and is willing to work, come out and try for 
the team. If you don't make it you will at 
least have the satisfaction of knowing that 
you made the fortunate ones work for their 
places. 



Professor Edwin G. Dexter of the University of 
Illinois, who has been conducting an extensive 
investigation of injuries received in college foot- 
ball, says that about one man in ten the country 
over plays foot ball. And about twice as large a 
proportion of the men in the small colleges play the 
game as in the large universities. If some of the 
big men in college who prefer to watch a game 
rather than take an active part in it would come out 
we might be able to show this average proportion.

LET THE BAND AND EVERY UNDER- 
GRADUATE BE ON THE SIDELINES 
TO-MORROW AFTERNOON AND EVERY 
AFTERNOON FROM NOW ON TO CHEER 
THE F OOT-BALL TEAM. 

College IRotes, 

Columbia University will celebrate its 150th 
anniversary October 29-31. 

The undergraduate members on the Library 
force consist of Greene, '05, Fox, Roberts, Rowe, 
'06, Russell, '07, and Ricker, '08. 

President Hyde took a prominent part in the edu- 
cational conference at the St. Louis Exposition in 
September, before which he read a paper. 

Professor Woodruff has resigned his position as 
Superintendent of Schools of Brunswick and vicin- 
ity. Professor Woodruff has served in this posi- 
tion since July, 1900. 

At a mass-meeting held Friday evening, Hall, 
'06, was elected Secretary of the Athletic Associa- 
tion to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of 
Porter, '06, who has gone to Oxford. 

A noticeable feature of the Sophomore-Fresh- 
man base-ball game was that three men playing on 
the Sophomore Class team, Piper, Briggs, and 
Clark are according to official registration really 
Freshmen and not Sophomores. 

Professor Lee has been engaged during the 
summer in writing an account of the mineral 
resources of Maine. The account was presented at 
the session of the American Mining Congress which 
met in Portland, Ore., in August. 

The college should feel grateful at least to the 
Sophomore Class for the manner in which they 
have used the Freshmen. Hazing is becoming 
more and more a thing of the past and the less we 
see of it the better it is for the college. 

Over 6,247 persons have paid admission to the 
Wadsworth-Longfellow house in Portland this sum- 
mer. It ought to pay those who occupy the Wads- 
worth and Longfellow rooms in college to open 
them up for the inspection of summer tourists. 

Those rooming in Winthrop Hall had to wear 
overcoats the first four or five days of this term 
owing to the intense cold. It would seem a very 
easy matter for the authorities to see that the heat- 
ing pipes were in proper condition before college 
opened. 

Upton, '07, won the Captain S. E. Turner cup 
at the annual tournament of the Brunswick Golf 
Club last Wednesday afternoon. The cup is the 
highest prize awarded by the club and the winner 
can hold it for one year. If he should win it twice 
more the cup would become his property. 

The Orient, together with all the students of 
Bowdoin College, unites in congratulating Wallace 



Copeland Philoon, 1905, captain of our foot-ball 
team this year, and the recipient of the wooden 
spoon last Ivy Day, in his good fortune at having 
secured the appointment for West Point next year. 

The Y. M. C. A. handbooks were issued in good 
season this year and sent around to the members of 
the entering class before the beginning of the term. 
The books are very neat. A new idea is the daily 
memorandum sheets which have been placed in the 
back and the reading matter corresponding cut 
down. We regret somewhat to see the smaller 
number of pictures in this edition, but aside from 
that, the handbooks give in a small space a very 
good idea of Bowdoin. 

Eddie Bates has left college to enter the Colum- 
bia Medical School. This means a serious loss to 
Bowdoin athletics as Bates was a good foot-ball 
player as well as having an enviable record in the 
track world, holding the State record in the 220- 
yard dash and having won the 100-yard dash for the 
past two years at the Maine Intercollegiate Meet. 

Among the old foot-ball men who attended 
practice last week were Bodwell, '01, the famous 
center; Dunlap, '03, fullback and tackle, and Stan- 
wood, '98, who played fullback for several years. 

The Theta Delta Chi Chapter House, a cut and 
description of which was published in a former 
issue, is now rapidly nearing completion and bids 
fair to fulfill all expectations. It is of three stories, 
containing a large living room, dining hall, library, 
kitchen, steward's rooms, fraternity hall, and 
accommodations for sixteen students. The library, 
dining hall and living room are to be connected by 
large sliding doors, and will afford ample space for 
events of a social nature. At the present time, the 
walls have been plastered and partly skim-coated 
and the staining has been put on the outside. The 
house is expected to be finished by December first. 



Hlumni personals. 



CLASS OF 1840. 
Rev. Dr. Edward Robie who celebrated his 
golden anniversary as pastor of the Congregational 
Church, Greenland, N. H., last year, was the most 
notable student in attendance at the summer school 
of divinity at Cambridge this last summer. Dr. 
Robie is in his 83d year and still does not think that 
he is too old to learn. 

CLASS OF 1856. 
REV. EDWIN B. PALMER, D.D. 
It is with particular sadness that the Orient 
reports the death, at his home in Winchester, 
Mass., September 2, 1904, of Rev. Edwin B. 
Palmer, a graduate of Bowdoin in the Class of 
1856. He was a prominent Congregational minis- 
ter, having preached at Lewiston and Newcastle, 
Me., besides having held several pastorates in Mas- 
sachusetts. He was born in Belfast, Me., in 1833, 
graduated from the Bangor Theological Seminary 
and served as chaplain of the Eighteenth Maine 
Infantry during the Civil War. For twenty-five 
years he has been a member of the Board of Over- 
seers of the college. Always a loyal son of Bow-

doin, Dr. Palmer missed but one commencement 
in all the years since his graduation. Full of fidel- 
ity, strength, and honest manhood, he will long be 
remembered, an honor to the institution which sent 
him forth. 

CLASS OF i860. 

Governor Garvin of Rhode Island headed a del- 
egation of the leading citizens of Providence, 
recently, which called on Augustine Jones, '60, who 
has been at the head of the famous old Friends 
School in Providence for a full quarter of a century, 
having just retired, and presented him with an elab- 
orate testimonial in appreciation of his work as an 
educator and his worth as a public-spirited citizen. 
CLASS OF 1862. 

Rev. Dr. Edward N. Packard who for a long 
time has been pastor of the Plymouth church, 
Syracuse, N. Y., has tendered his resignation with 
that church and has taken up a pastorate in Strat- 
ford, Conn. Dr. Packard is a very successful 
preacher and is fortunate in being so well located. 
CLASS OF 1866. 

The University of Michigan conferred the degree 
of LL.D. on Frederick Henry Gerrish, A.B., Profes- 
sor of Anatomy in the Medical School of Maine 
and author of the widely known "Gerrish's Anat- 
omy," at its commencement exercises this year. 
CLASS OF 1871. 

At the recent State election, Augustine Sim- 
mons was elected Judge of the Probate Court for 
Somerset County. 

CLASS OF 1872. 

Mr. Herbert Harris, '72, of Bangor, has 
accepted the position of organist of the State Street 
Church, Portland, and will shortly move to that 
city to enter upon his duties there. For a couple 
of years Mr. Harris was organist of the Central 
Congregational Church in Bangor and for the past 
two years has occupied a similar position at one 
of the large Bar Harbor churches. He is one of 
the most prominent organists in the State. 
CLASS OF 1876. 

William T. Cobb of Rockland was elected Gov- 
ernor of the State of Maine this fall by a handsome 
plurality of 27,000 votes. A Bowdoin man will suc- 
ceed a Bowdoin man. 

CLASS OF 1886. 

Charles A. Byram has been elected superintend- 
ent of the public schools of Pittsfield, Mass. Mr. 
Byram has been principal of the High School for 
the past ten years. 

CLASS OF 1889. 

There have been several changes in the Class of 
1889 since the secretary issued his circular last 
June. Hon. Sanford L. Fogg has been promoted 
from Judge of the Municipal Court at Bath to be 
Clerk of Courts of Sagadahoc County, and his 
classmate, Frank L. Staples, has succeeded him as 
Judge of the Municipal Court. Frederick W. Free- 
man of St. Albans, Vt.. has been chosen superin- 
tendent of schools of Bath. Wilbur D. Gilpatric 
was married at Attleboro, Mass., August 29, 1904, 
to Miss Edith St. John. William M. Emery has 
published the "Chadbourne-Chadbourn Genealogy," 
of which he is the author. 

CLASS OF 1902. 

H. I. Grinnell, '02, is teaching the High School 
at West Derry, New Hampshire.

Spirit of 
Helpfulness 

In cases of accident everybody manifests 
a desire to be of assistance. At such times 
the spirit of he! pfulness asserts Itself, bnt so 
often the wrong thing is done and the right 
thing left undone. The first thing to do In 
such an event is to quickly and freely apply 
Pond's Extract— the old family doctor— a 
recognized emergency remedy, tor over 80 
years used by nurses, physicians and hos 
pitals. Every student should have a bottle 
close at hand. Quickly stops bleeding In 
deep cuts ; cures braises, sprains, and pre- 
vents muscles becoming sore from gym- 
nasium exercises; re- 
lieves earache, toothache, 
rheumaticm and all pains. 
Soothes and freshens the 
face after shaving. Watered 
Witch Hazel, a weak solu- 
tion—sometimes offered in 
place of Pond's Extract- 
has no medicinal value— is 
positively worthless. Pond's 
Extract CORES— therefore 
is priceless.

REV. MR. JUMP'S ADDRESS. 

An extract from Rev. Mr. Jump's address, "The 
Statesmanship of Conscience," William Pitt Fessen- 
den, Bowdoin, '23. 

"My good blade carves the casques of men, 
My tough lance thrusteth sure, 
My strength is as the strength of ten, 
Because my heart is pure." 

So sang Sir Galahad in Tennyson's poem of that 
name, and so fittingly might have spoken William 
Pitt Fessenden, one of the strongest, cleanest, sturd- 
iest souls that ever went out from the Pine Tree 
State to serve the nation's weal. His call brought 
him into public life just before the period of the 
Civil War at a time when passions seethed, when 
fierce struggles in the forum gave hint of other and 
fiercer struggles on less bloodless fields, when in 
truth "good blades" and "lances that could thrust 
sure" were needed. And yet in all that troublous 
era his stalwart figure led in counsel and in combat, 
and the secret of his power lay largely in the incor- 
ruptibility of his soul. Not always did he follow 
along the laws of orthodox partisanship, hence he 
was villified at one time as loudly as he was praised 
at others. Such crystal-clear integrity is not as 
common as one could wish it even in the world of 
party politics, hence it is the more pleasure to 
acquaint ourselves with the facts in the career of this 
notable public servant. 

William Pitt Fessenden was born not far from 
Daniel Webster's home in New Hampshire, Octo- 
ber 6, 1806, 98 years ago last Thursday. Webster 
himself, a friend of his father's, rode twenty miles 
over the snow on a cold winter's day to act as god- 
father at William's christening. Precocious even 
for that day when precocity was not uncommon, he 
entered Bowdoin College at the age of thirteen and 
graduated four years later. Then came in ' rapid 
succession the reading of law at Portland, admission 
to the bar, advance into the ranks of the leading 
attorneys of Maine, terms in the State Legislature 
and Congress, until finally in 1854 he became United 
States Senator and served in the Senate well-nigh 
consecutively for fifteen years. 

After the war came the perplexing days of recon- 
struction, their problems aggravated by the death of 
Lincoln whose hand at the helm of state so steadied 
the nation. Andrew Jackson, the tailor's son, who 
succeeded Lincoln, lacked wofully in tact, culture, 
and far-sightedness, and erelong he and his party 
were altogether at loggerheads. Bad was followed 
by worse, until as a last resort articles of impeach- 
ment were drawn up against the President of the 
United States. The vote on impeachment failed of 
the necessary number for conviction by only one, 
and the leading rebel, as the Republican party man- 
agers denominated him, was William Pitt Fessenden. 
Against his party, against the popular opinion not 



only of his own state but of the nation, against the 
reiterated advice of his nearest friends he voted for 
acquittal, and thus brought down upon himself a 
hurricane of abuse such as but rarely has fallen to 
the lot of an American citizen. Why did he do it? 
For the simple reason that he was a statesman with 
a conscience. As he himself declared in words, than 
which none nobler are written in the American 
archives : "Results will tell whether I am right or 
wrong. Meanwhile I am here on my conscience 
and my oath, and if my constituents doubt my motives 
or distrust my judgment, they must send some one 
else in my place." The difference between a states- 
man and a politician, some one has said, consists in 
the fact that the politician considers the next 
election, the statesman the next generation. Fessen- 
den was not a politician, he surrendered every pros- 
pect of political preferment when he voted "Not 
guilty," but he showed himself of royal statesman- 
ship, and succeeeding generations have been thrilled 
by his courage and moved by his heroic example of 
fidelity to conviction. 

To the citizens of this age especially the life of 
William Pitt Fessenden speaks a brave challenge. 
Are you only an American, it says, or are you both 
an American and a man? Are you a patriot, a 
patriot alone, or are you a patriot and a Christian? 
The old couplet of patriotic consecration, "M> 
country, right or wrong ; but right or wrong, my 
country," has a captivating ring, but its value is as 
dubious as its morality. We use it to-day very 
often, substituting "party" for "country," but the 
wickedness of the doctrine is not lessened. No 
human relations are grounded in the moral order 
of the universe. The law of gravitation that draws 
the stone to earth has its noblest manifestations in 
the sublime out-goings of the solar system. A polit- 
ical party or a nation must exalt righteousness or in 
the long run it will be smashed into failure beneath 
' the wheels of the Almighty's resistless purpose. 
And he is the true partisan, the true patriot, the 
true American, the true man who stands, as did 
William Pitt Fessenden, always defending and 
ready to defend the flag on which is inscribed his 
conviction of the right. 



At the request of the Faculty we reprint the regu- 
lations which were adopted last year :

unless the student shall have received a grade of at 
least "C" in all his courses of the semester in which 
the extra was taken. 

X. A student will be conditioned in any course 
when he fails to attain the minimum required rank ; 
when absent from a final examination without pre- 
vious excuse; or, at the discretion of the instructor, 
when absent from any fixed examination without 
previous excuse.

the work in class during the semesters of 1904-05 as 
the Recorder and the instructors concerned may 
direct, or by tutoring for a corresponding part of 
either semester. 

XVII. A student with one extra term course 
to his credit may, when agreeable to the instructor 
in the same department in which the extra was 
acquired (or in a closely allied department, by per- 
mission of the Faculty), take such additional work 
as is necessary to bring his extra to the equivalent of 
a semester course.

The Library has recently received as a gift 
twenty-one volumes from "the private library of 
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Some of these vol- 
umes have the owner's book-plate in them and many 
of them contain his autograph. 



Sophomore, 7; Freshmen, 6. 

The second game in the series between the Soph- 
omores and Freshmen was played on the Delta Sat- 
urday, October 8. Though there was a larger 
attendance than at the first game there was little 
class rivalry shown in spite of the close score. The 
Freshmen showed great improvement, making ten 
hits oft" Briggs, while the Sophomores failed to make 
a hit. The Freshmen lost the game through light, 
costly errors. In the fifth inning Robinson, the 
Freshman pitcher, gave way to Files, who finished 
the game. Pike, Lawrence and Briggs excelled for 
the Sophomores, while Hayes, Kinney and Packard 
made the best showing for the Freshmen. ' 

After the game the Sophomores made a rush for 
the chapel to ring the bell, but the rope had been 
previously secured by two upper classmen who had 
climbed up in the tower. Even a stream from a fire 
extinguisher failed to bring them down and they 
finally climbed down on the outside by means of the 
rope. The upper classmen had locked the Sopho- 
mores in ,the chapel, but when they discovered that 
the Freshmen were ringing the bell from outside, 
they broke out and a rush followed, which resulted 
in the Sophomores gaining possession of the bell 
rope. The affair ended very pleasantly by all the 
classes uniting in the college yell and then the Fresh- 
men cheered the Sophomores and the latter returned 
the favor. 



THE AROOSTOOK CLUB. 

The Aroostook Club held the first meeting of the 
year Saturday, October 1. The following officers 
were elected : 

President — Leonard A. Pierce, 1905. 



J28 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



Vice-President— Arthur O. Putnam, 1906. 

Secretary and Treasurer — Walter P. Clark, 1906. 

The executive committee is composed of Pow- 
ers, '07, Hacker, '07, and Osborne, '08. The new 
members are as follows : Thomas, '07, Osborne, Put- 
nam, Foss, Donnell, Kinney, P. Powers and Archi- 
bald, 1908. 



CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION ITEMS. 

On October sixteenth, President Hyde will lect- 
ure, under the auspices of the Association, at the 
Church on the Hill ; the service taking the place of 
the regular church service at seventy-thirty o'clock. 
His subject, "The College," is one which will interest 
every college man. An exceedingly interesting and 
helpful service is assured. Special music will be fur- 
nished by the college quartet. A cordial invitation to 
attend this service is extended to all Bowdoin men. 
Let us show our appreciation of President Hyde's 
interest by giving him a large audience of those to 
whom he would most desire to address his lecture. 

ITEMS FOR PAST WEEK. 

The Association held its first meeting of the term 
on Thursday evening in Banister Hall at the usual 
hour. The subject for consideration was "The 
Special Temptations of College Life." The leader 
was Greene, '05. These services are held on every 
Thursday evening at seven-fifteen o'clock in Banis- 
ter Hall. They are open to any one desiring to 
attend. 

On Sunday afternoon, immediately after chapel, 
Mr. Arthur E. Wood of Harvard, '06, addressed 
the men of the college. Mr. Wood's talk was 
principally of the work of the Harvard Associa- 
tion ; he was a forceful speaker and presented 
his views of the work in a clear, admirable manner. 
Ryan, '05, rendered a solo which, as usual, was much 
appreciated by all. 

Bible Study. 
It is earnestly hoped that there will be a large 
number of students who will care to take up the 
courses of Bible Study offered by the Y. M. C. A. 
this year. The courses last year proved very popu- 
lar and instructive. This year there will be two 
divisions, the Seniors and Juniors, under Dr. Burnett, 
and the Sophomores and Freshmen under the lead- 
ership of P. K. Green, '05. Attractive courses will 
be prepared. 



BOWDOIN IN THE LEGISLATURE. 

Not only is the Governor-elect of Maine, Hon. 
Wm. T. Cobb, 'yy, a loyal son of Bowdoin, but there 
will also be no fewer than nine Bowdoin men in the 
next Legislature. In the Senate there will be Bar- 
rett Potter, '78, from Cumberland County, and Fred 
J. Allen, '89, from York County. In the House 
there will be Edward N. Merrill, '74, of Skowhegan ; 
Don A. H. Powers, '74, of Houlton ; Stephen C. 
Whitmore, '75, of Brunswick ; Charles F. Johnson, 
'79, of Waterville; Eugene Thomas, '85, of Tops- 
ham ; Henry H. Hastings, '90, of Bethel ; and Perci- 
val P. Baxter, '98. of Portland. 



FALL MEET. 

On October 29 the annual fall track meet will be 
held on Whittier Athletic Field by the undergrad- 
uates of the college. There are at present only 
about thirty-five men out trying, but before the meet 
there should be double the number. Every man who 
has any intention of entering this branch of ath- 
letics in the spring should come out now. Never 
before has the college been so fortunate as to have 
a coach during the fall term, and the students should 
improve the opportunity. The meet is to be a handi- 
cap meet with all the regular events, so that every- 
one stands an even chance. This fact should make 
it the more interesting, and offer a still greater 
inducement for new men to come out. The Fresh- 
men are especially urged to try this fall, for there is 
plenty of fine material in the class which must be 
developed as soon as possible. 



GLEE CLUB. 

Rehearsals for the Glee Club are now being held 
in Banister Hall and the work is developing rapidly 
under the able leadership of Ryan, '05. There are 
not, however, as many candidates as there should be 
and it is hoped that more men will be out after this, 
especially from the Freshman Class. This club is 
just as much a college organization as any of the 
teams and all undergraduates should lend their 
hearty support. The candidates at present are as fol- 
lows : First basses, R. Cushing, '05, Stetson, '06, 
Joy, '07, C. Greene, '08, R. B. Williams, '06, Robinson, 
'07, and Andrews, '06. Second basses. S. W. Ricker, 
'08, W. N. Haines, '07, W. S. Linnell, '07, P. K. 
Greene, '05, Pike, '06, and Johnson, '07. First ten- 
ors : Denning, '05, Leydbn, '07, Foss, '08, Packard, 
'08. Second tenors : Shorey, '07, Crowley, '08, Cox, 
'08, and Wilson, '07. 



FOOT=BALL. 



Harvard, 17 ; Bowdoin, o. 

Bowdoin played Harvard at Cambridge, Wednes- 
day, October 6, and was defeated by the score of 17 
to o. The game was an interesting one and was 
hotly contested all the way through, Bowdoin show- 
ing up in remarkably good form against the heavy 
team, and playing very aggressive foot-ball. 

The feature of the game was the playing of Kins- 
man, he making a spectacular play on a long run 
around the Harvard end and throwing off a number 
of the Harvard players. 

Harvard won the toss and took the south goal. 
Chapman kicked to Nesmith on the 15-yard line, 
who ran in 17 yards. Noyes fell back for a kick, but 
lost two yards on a fumble. Noyes then kicked to 
McGraw on Bowdoin's 45-yard line, who reached the 
center of the field before being downed. Kinsman 
made two yards and Blanchard failed to gain. Chap- 
man made four yards through the left side of the 
line. McGraw made six yards around left end. 
Here the Harvard line held and punted to Bow- 
doin's 43-yard line, and secured possession of the 



BOWDOIN ORIENT.

ball on a fumble. Then Harvard made steady gains 
down the field for her first touchdown, Hanley tak- 
ing the ball over the line. 

The remainder of the game was similar to the 
above, Bowdoin playing a remarkably fast game 
against odds throughout, and the final score was but 
17 to o in favor of Harvard.

OFFICIAL NOTICES. 



Bowdoin, 32 ; Fort McKinley, o. 

Bowdoin played a practice game with Fort 
McKinley, Saturday, and defeated the soldiers, 32-0. 
The game was beneficial to the 'varsity in that it 
gave an opportunity to try new formations. The 
Bowdoin eleven showed great improvement both in 
offensive and defensive work. While the whole 
team played star ball, Philoon, Kinsman, Chapman, 
McGraw and Drummond were particularly brilliant. 
The line-up : 

Bowdoin. Fort McKinley. 

J. B. Drummond, l.e r.e., Wilson. 

Finn, l.t r.t., Kellogg, Surreus. 

Skolfield, l.g r.g., Nicholson, Rauner.

Amherst defeated Bowdoin, Wednesday after- 
noon, at Amherst by the score 23-0. A full account 
of the game will be printed in the next issue. 



The members of the Freshman Class 
desirous of becoming eligible to the Orient 
Board at the election next spring can learn the 
manner in which they will be considered as 
candidates by consulting the Editor-in-Chief 
any time before October 22. 

President Hyde will be at his office in the 
library from 2.30 to 4.30 each Monday after- 
noon during the present term, at which time 
.he will meet students who wish to consult him 
on different matters. 

All those who have not passed off their 
entrance examinations in History should con- 
sult me within the next week.

BOWDOIN CALENDAR. 

A 1905 Bowdoin Souvenir Calendar is being pre- 
pared and will be out by the first of December in 
ample time for the holiday trade. This souvenir is 
to be constructed along the same lines as the one 
issued by Packard, '04, and Holt, '03, two years ago 
and will make a very appropriate Christmas gift. 
The pictures of all the representative college organ- 
izations will be included in this work, such as the 
athletic teams, Glee Club, Dramatic Club, Debating 
Team, etc. All the college buildings and fraternity 
houses will be pictured with some of the most pleas- 
ing interiors of the same. The cover is to embody 
a new idea, being in buckram with colored heraldric 
effect. The work is in the hands of one of the best 
engraving houses in the country, and the calendar on 
the whole bids fair to be as great a success as the 
one of two years ago. The high cost will necessitate 
the taking of preliminary orders, which will be 
attended to by Harvey, '05.

College Spirit. 



Most college men are 
bound by three ties ; first 
of all there is their tie to the college, next 
their tie to their class, and last their tie to their 
fraternity. These ties are all right in them- 
selves, but they should not be allowed to con- 
flict. In no case should the two latter inter- 
fere with a man's duty to his college. It has 
recently seemed" to many that class spirit has 
been rather more demonstrative than it should 
be, but this has proved to be erroneous. That 
every man in college places his love for his 
college before all was shown by the happy 
ending of the rush last Saturday, when all the 
classes joined in giving the college yell, 
though it seemed for a time as if college spirit 
had been lost sight of through interclass war- 
fare. 



Anniversary of 
Franklin Pierce. 



The 23d of next month 
will be the iooth anniver- 



sary of the birth of one of 
Bowdoin's most famous sons — Franklin 
Pierce. As is well known, he was the only 
President of the United States that ever came 
from the New England States, and his name 
is one of the famous of Bowdoin's great men. 

He came to Bowdoin in 1820 when he was 
but 16 years of age, and while for the first 
part of his college course he was not especially 
studious, he was nevertheless a most popular 
man among his mates. He was also as a stu- 
dent — what he always was in life — a man of 
marked integrity. 

His career in life was a brilliant one and 
does not need to be reviewed by the Orient. 
It is a part of national history. It seems 
appropriate, however, that as the time draws 
near for the anniversary of the birth of one of 
the nation's great men, that Bowdoin students 
of to-day should give a passing thought to the 
man who once graced the college that we are 
learning to love. It would be well that some 
formal observance be made of the day, that 
the college and the students may remember 
the man who was an honor to the college and 
to the nation. 



Mr. Jump's 
Lectures. 



Is Bowdoin College aware 
that a series of most inter- 
esting and enlightening talks are being given 
Sunday evenings by Mr. Jump in the Church 
upon the Hill, the subject of which are 
famous sons of Bowdoin? Such is the case, 
and we lament to say, that the undergraduate 
body of the college is ignoring the talks. Are 
we to let an Amherst man study into the 
depths of our past, to be so good as to give us 
the benefit of his hard and exacting research, 
and then not be kind enough to show him the 
courtesy of listening to them? It is not only 
courtesy, fellows, but the talks are entertain- 
ing and beneficial in the extreme. The lives 
of men, whose names are known to us, to be 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



m 



sure, but only as names, are laid bare along 
with their virtues and the causes of their vir- 
tues. Every son of this good old college 
should learn the story and the lesson of such 
lives as Jacob Abbott's, William Pitt Fessen- 
den's, John A. Andrew's, and the rest of 
them. Just a few moments Sunday evenings 
could be spared with great profit to the deriv- 
ing of the profound inspirations of the lives of 
these masters. Let's give our minister a rous- 
ing audience next Sunday, fellows. 



. . . To-night the eight Greek 

Initiations. , °_ . . .„ . . 

letter fraternities will ini- 
tiate into their midst and secrets some sixty 
new men. The journey across the desert to 
the chosen land will undoubtedly be hard and 
disagreeable; but the Orient takes oath that 
there will not be a man of the sixty who will 
say that the destination was not worth the 
journey. It is impossible to narrate the 
countless pleasures and advantages which will 
result in the step which these men are about 
to take. Friendships different from all other 
friendships are formed, and a loyalty and rev- 
erence far above the ordinary is produced. 
But remember, you who are about to take this 
step, no matter what society you are joining, 
be careful ever to do nothing but what will 
reflect honor and credit upon those high ideals 
which it represents. 



„ ,. „ With the Maine games 

Colby Game. & 

rapidly approaching the 

foot-ball team begins the most important part 
of the season that only vigorous, unflagging 
effort can make wholly successful. It is 
often customary to goad by undue criticism 
and by exaggeration of its difficulties a team 
that has notably hard work to do. This 
method, never pleasant, does not seem neces- 
sary this year, for the actual facts speak for 
themselves. Every one of the Maine colleges 
have stronger teams than in 1903. 



On Wednesday occurs the first of the 
important games of the season. Every one 
knows how important is this game and how 
absolutely necessary is the attendance of 
every Bowdoin man. Colby has a remarkably 
strong team, and is confident of victory, and 
the most strenuous efforts of the team and its 
supporters are needed if Bowdoin is to secure 
a long-coveted championship. Let the love 
for our Alma Mater place the whole student 
body akin ; and Wednesday afternoon gather 
on the Whittier Athletic Field with a grim 
determination to fight the battle of our college 
life. 



Y. M. C. A. 



The movement which has 
been inaugurated at Har- 
vard, in the line of social settlement work, 
boys' clubs, Bible study classes and general 
religious work, is certainly worthy of univer- 
sal praise. We cannot help admiring the 
Association work of all of our American col- 
leges and universities. The question arises, 
where does Bowdoin stand? Is the Bowdoin 
sentiment toward such matters what it should 
be? To get down to fundamentals, a lack of 
interest in religious affairs , reflects more 
seriously on the college honor than anything 
else. 

There are men enough in Bowdoin, who 
should take an interest in such matters, to 
form a strong association. Let us cast off 
that old inherited antipathy. Let us face the 
facts in a clear, fair, honorable way and either 
join the association or give it the benefit of our 
impress on college sentiment. 



QUILL PRIZES. 

The prize for the best short story submitted to 
the Quill was won by E. A. Duddy, '07, and the prize 
for the best poem by J. W. Sewall, '06. The prizes 
are autograph copies of "Rebecca" and "The Village 
Watch Tower," by Kate Douglas Wiggin.

BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



College Botes. 



The night is still, the breezes blow 

Across the campus soft and low, — 

And Nature dons her mask of crape 

To help the Greeks initiate. 

Rash neophyte that thoughtless goes 

Blindfolded to — Lord only knows. 

For Nature gives no explanation 

To mysteries of initiation. — Orient. 

Adjourns to-morrow. 

The Medical School opens October 20. 

Bernard Archibald, '04, is visiting this week, at 
the college. 

It has been a strenuous week for the White But- 
ton Brigade. 

Mikelsky, '05, is showing a fine line of shoes at 
his room in North Winthrop. 

The Hawthorne statue fund is steadily growing 
under the efficient care of Professor Johnson. 

John Winchell, '06, has left college to accept a 
position as book-keeper in the Lisbon Falls paper 
mill. 

A picture of Mr. Foster with a sketch of his 
life appears in a recent issue of the Brunswick 
Record. 

The Freshmen stopped the Sophomores from 
playing ringers on the ball team but — it didn't make 
any difference. 

The Boston papers have been giving all kinds of 
praise to Kinsman since his fine work for Bowdoin 
in the Harvard game. 

Freshman physical examinations have begun 
under the direction of Dr. Whittier and a consider- 
able corps of assistants. 

It will be of interest to all to know that the Col- 
lege Teas which proved so popular last year are to 
be renewed again this year. 

A number of students attended the launching of 
the United States battleship Georgia, at the Bath 
Iron Works, Tuesday afternoon. 

In the flush of hoped-for victory 1908 removed 
their white buttons at the base-ball game last Sat- 
urday, but they were on again in the afternoon. 

Coach Lathrop, Denning, '05, and Rowe, '04, went 
coon hunting Tuesday night. The only thing they 
had to show for their night's work was a hawk. 

President Hyde delivered an address before the 
New England Association of Colleges, which met at 
Wellesley College last week, on "The Place of the 
College in the Social System." 

The class officers for this semester are as fol- 
lows: Senior Class, Professor McRae; Junior, 
Professor Ham; Sophomore, Mr. Pearson, and 
Freshman, Professor Mitchell. 

One of the greatest foot-ball qualities of Prince- 
ton teams, says the Globe, has been their ability to 
fight to the end and to take advantage of opportuni- 
ties. This McClave, the old Tiger, has instilled into 
his team. 



The smallest class in college is the Teachers' 
Latin Class of four. Think of the "deads !" 

Now that the "fishing" season is over, the mem- 
bers of the different fraternities may well feel 
relieved. It is rather a tedious ordeal to go through — 
for the "fisher" and the "fished." 

The Sophomore History Class was suddenly ini- 
tiated into the mysteries of a written "quiz" last 
Friday. None of the class thought it was right nor 
were they able to write. 

The evening orgies, encroaching not a little upon 
the night, will be followed by a banquet at which the 
initiates, active members and alumni of the 
respective chapters will pay their respects to 
Epicurus. 

Mr. Foster, instructor in Debating, has issued a 
very useful circular giving the full list of all the 
debates this term and the principals concerned. The 
circular also contains facts which are important to 
those taking the course. 

The beautiful collections . in the Walker Art 
Building were augmented this week by the arrival 
of the English Lake Series. There are 104 pictures 
in the series and they will be on exhibition until 
October 31. A very unique cup and saucer from 
Dresden has been added to Mrs. Ware's collection. 

Plans have been outlined for building a first-class 
hotel in Brunswick. Frederick K. Daggett of Bos- 
ton is interested in this move and has had plans 
drawn for a house to contain 64 rooms, with modern 
improvements and in every way adapted to the 
needs of the traveling public. There are three sites 
being considered, the Benjamin Green property, the 
site of the old Tontine and the one opposite the mall 
on Maine Street. 

The Massachusetts Club held a business meeting 
on Thursday, October 6, at 11 Maine Hall. It was 
voted that in future the initiation fee should be one 
dollar. All undergraduate members of the college 
who are now living in Massachusetts are eligible to 
join this club and it is hoped that every man who can 
join will do so. The club has done much toward 
bringing Massachusetts men to Bowdoin and all the 
new members should give their hearty support to 
this organization. 

There has been a good deal said and written about 
having a light outside the door to Hubbard Hall, but 
as yet nothing has been done. The need of such a 
light is evident to every one who uses the library 
at night, for it is about the darkest spot on the whole 
campus and the darkness is intensified to one who 
has just left behind the brilliant illumination within 
the hall. It seems as if it would be better policy to 
place a light at this spot before anyone is injured 
by a misstep in the dark. 

The following notice appeared on the Bulletin 
Board last Tuesday morning: Owing to the unfa- 
vorable condition of the weather, Mr. Moody will 
not drive Triangle at Topsham this afternoon. He 
has a limited number of tickets left, however, which 
he will be glad to give to members of his classes. 
The large number of Freshmen who attended the 
World's Fair, Thursday afternoon, were disap- 
pointed not to find the Professor's horse there. The 
fact was that the judges barred him out because 
they believed him to be a "ringer."

The new faculty tennis-court seems to be as faith- 
fully patronized as any! 

It has been suggested that a new 'undergraduate 
club be organized this year to be known as the 
"Faculty Club." Quite remarkable is the number of 
"faculty sons" that are in college at present. Up to 
this year there have never been but three sons of 
members of the college faculty graduate from col- 
lege — Chapman, '91, Houghton, '03, Robinson, '03 — 
.but at present there are seven in the undergraduate 
body — Woodruff, '05, Woodruff, '06, Houghton, '06, 
Robinscn, '07, Hyde, '08, Lee, '08, Robinson, '08. 
The faculty can always get hold of some one to hold 
responsible for any college pranks !

HON. GEORGE F. EMERY. 
The Orient, resuming its wo.rk after the long 
vacation, learns with sadness of the passing away of 
many of Bowdoin's sons during the summer months ; 
and thus with pain reports the death, on Friday, 
July 1, 1904, of Hon. George Freeman Emery, of 
the Class of 1836. For twenty-eight years he 
served as clerk of the circuit court in Portland, and 
for six years was register of probate in Oxford 
County. He was an upright man and a loyal son of 
the college, and his death comes as a sad blow to 
the many friends who knew him. 

CLASS OF 1844. 
The Hon. Charles W. Larrabee, one of Maine's 
best known attorneys and collector of Port of Bath 
under Cleveland, died Oct. 6, 1904, aged 82. He was 
born in Brunswick and after graduating from Bow- 
doin, attended the Harvard Law School and also 
took a medical course. He was a member of the 
Bath school board and one of the organizers of the 
board of trade. Death was hastened by a fracture 
of the hip caused by a fall several weeks ago. 

ARTHUR FULLER BELCHER. 

Arthur F. Belcher, one of the most prominent 
of Portland's younger attorneys, a partner of Col. 
Frederick Hale, died at his home Wednesday night, 
October 5, at the age of forty-three years. He was 
born in Farmington, Maine, April 24, 1861, and 
graduated from Bowdoin in the Class of 1882. He 
was organizer and a director of the First National 
Bank of Farmington. He leaves a wife and two 
daughters. A man, in the wisest sense of the word, 
he represented that which Bowdoin wishes her sons 
to be. 

DAVID DANA SPEAR. 

David Dana Spear, who graduated from Bowdoin 
in the Class of 1897, died at East Hampton, Mass., 
July 3, 1904. A young man of unusual promise and 
ability, he accepted a position as teacher and went 
to the Philippines at the time of their first occupation 
by the Americans, but was unable to withstand the 
climate and returned, broken down in health, some 
two years ago, and has never since recovered his 
strength. He was a son of the late David D. Spear 
and his home was Freeport, Maine, where his 
remains were brought for burial.

OVERWHELMING VICTORY. 



BOWDOIN, 52; COLBY, 0. 



Bowdoin made a brilliant start on the Maine 
series by defeating Colby, 52 to o. The game was 
too one-sided to be interesting for the hundred 
Colby supporters. It was evident after the first ten 
minutes of play that the two teams were not in the 
same class. Victory was sure ; the question only 
remained how large a score could be run up. Not 
once during the entire game was Bowdoin's goal in 
the slightest danger. Colby was extremely weak 
both in offensive and defensive work. Not once did 
she hold Bowdoin for downs and only in five or six 
instances did she secure first down during the hour 
and ten minutes of play, but was repeatedly thrown 
back for heavy losses. The ball was in Bowdoin's 
possession nine-tenths of the time. Colby had 
much the heavier team but the Bowdoin eleven was 
much the faster and exhibited excellent team work. 
Every man was in every play. Many yards were 
gained by dragging the man with the ball after he 
had been tackled. The feature of the game was 
the sixty-yard run through the Colby team for a 
touchdown by Bass who had caught the ball on a 
punt. It is hard to pick out individual stars for all 
played foot-ball of the highest order. However, 
the long and repeated gains made by Chapman, 
Curtis, Speake and Finn are especially noteworthy. 
McGraw played a star game at quarter and kicked 
some extremely difficult goals. For Colby, Pugsley 
and McVane put up the best game. During the 
latter part of the second half Bowdoin put in a 
number of her second team men as substitutes and 
it was evident that the Bowdoin second eleven could 
have easily defeated Colby. However, Colby is to 
be commended for the way her men played in the 
face of defeat. Colby only played one substitute. 

The line-up :

Amherst, 23; Bowdoin, o. 

Bowdoin lost to Amherst College, Wednesday of 
last week, by the score of 23 to o. Though the score 
was a good-sized one against Bowdoin and though 
there are some who expected that the result would 
have been more favorable, to those who have fol- 
lowed the season closely, the result was not surpris- 
ing. 

Amherst showed that she has one of the best 
college teams in New England. The game she put 
up against Bowdoin was a much harder proposition 
than that of Harvard, and those who witnessed the 
game are firm in the conviction that Amherst can 
defeat Harvard. 

The game was a rough one all the way through, 
it being the hardest played game of the season. 
Coggeshall, R. Cook and Rollins excelled for 
Amherst, while every man on the Bowdoin team 
played a good game. 

The summary : 

Amherst. Bowdoin.

AN EXTRACT FROM PRESIDENT HYDE'S 

ADDRESS, "THE COLLEGE; WHAT IT IS 

AND WHAT IT DOES." 

The best way to define the college is to close in 
upon it from the two sides of school and university. 
Passing from the school with its rigid methods we 
come to the school-college which holds the same old 
methods of drill and discipline as the school. On 
the other hand, we have the university college with 
its too free license, and its harmful tendency 
towards specialization. The real college, then, 
neither employs the disciplinary methods of a school 
or the vicariousness of the university. 

In a college must be found professors who know 
their subjects as contagious forms of study. He

interest, be sufficiently genial to meet students in 
informal friendly ways. 

The course of study should in a broad way be 
all comprehensive, covering the arts, languages, 
philosophy and at least four sciences, imparting 
enough of each to make one at home in all the great 
places of the earth. Each general department should 
be represented in at least three consecutive courses 
of a year each, one elementary, one or more com- 
prehensive, interesting, practical, inspiring, and one 
devoted to individual research. The broad middle 
courses are the distinctive features of the college. 
Literature must not be wrapped in a shroud of 
grammar, or nailed into the coffin of philology, but 
presented as the revelation of the mystery and 
the tragedy of the human heart. A hundred men 
can teach a method of school drill, ten men can 
teach it as a subject of university investigation, for 
every one who can teach it in the broad, vital inter- 
pretation which a college demands. 

College discipline relies ehiefljy on friendship, 
makes no threats, employs no spies, tolerates known 
evil in its students as a parent does in its child. It 
appeals to what is best in the worst men, and 
believes that sinners can be saved. 

The college is intensely Christian, but unsecta- 
rian. Christianity in colleges is of two types, one 
of which is professedly connected with church and 
association, the other of which is unconsciously 
absorbed in the forms of goodness which the col- 
lege offers, faithful work, genial intercourse, unsel- 
fish devotion to aims larger than one's self. 

Social life in college finds its best expression in 
fraternities, clubs, teams, all of which contain slight 
agencies for evil but are ordinarily mighty powers 
for good. The desirable size of the college is large 
enough to include representatives of all types of 
men, rich and poor, good scholars and good fellows, 
athletes and men of artistic temperament, and yet 
small enough to make the individual of some 
importance, and to insure him the active criticism of 
his fellows. The college is a place where men 
study great subjects under broad teachers in a lib- 
erty which is not license, and a leisure which is not 
idleness, in intense devotion to a community life; 
under the eye of men too keen to be deceived and 
too kind to be unfair. It gives its graduates power 
to acquire any knowledge they may want, and an 
actual mastery of some one chosen field, puts them 
on social equality with the best people they will ever 
meet, gives to the state leaders, who cannot be 
bribed, to the church ministers who can do more 
than repeat ritualized tradition and turn the cra'nks 
of ecclesiastical machinery, prophets who get first 
hand contact with the purposes of God ; gives to the 
community men who bring to their structures their 
institutions, the accuracy of science, the beauty of 
art and the stability and solidity of Nature's laws. 

The concep and function of the college is not 
mental training which is the province of the school, 
nor specialized knowledge, which is the province of 
the university, though incidentally it may be both of 
these things. 

To be at home in all lands, and all ages, to count 
Nature a familiar acquaintance, and art an intimate 
friend ; to gain a standard for an appreciation of 
other men's work and the criticism of one's own ; to 
carry the keys of the world's library in one's pocket, 



and feel its resources behind one in whatever task 
be undertaken, to make hosts of friends among men 
of one's own age, who are to be leaders in all walks 
of life, to lose one's self in generous enthusiasms 
and to co-operate with others for common ends, to 
learn something from students who are gentlemen, 
and form character under professors who are 
Christians — this is the liberal gift of a college for 
the best four years of one's life.

TENNIS TOURNAMENT. 

The tennis tournament for the championship in 
singles and doubles among the players in college 
began Monday, October 11, and was concluded this 
week. Much interest was developed as the tourna- 
ment progressed. The inclemency of the weather last 
week retarded the contest considerably. Tobey, '06, 
is the winner in the singles with Laidley, '05, 
second. Tobey and S. Williams, '05, were the suc- 
cessful team in the doubles with Haines, '07, and 
Linnell, '06, second. The prizes are beautiful silver 
cups. Owing to lack of space we give only the 
semi-finals and finals.

CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION ITEMS. 

The weekly prayer-meeting of the Christian 
Association was held as usual on last Thursday 
evening in Banister Hall at seven-thirty. The 
meeting was in charge of Hawkesworth, '06. Mr. 
Hawkeswbrth's subject wps "Self Control." His 
exposition of it was clear, concise and helpful to all 
who attended. As this is the only service of its 
kind in the college, it is hoped that all who feel an 
interest in religious problems, will come out. All 
will be cordially welcomed and free, if they choose, 
to add any suggestions of their own. 

Mr. Foster will speak before the Young Men's 
Christian Association in Banister Hall, next Sun- 
day afternoon, October 23, at 4.15. 

SUNDAY EVENING SERVICE. 
On Sunday evening, October sixteenth, occurred 
the first of a series of services which are to be held 
by the Association in connection with the college 
church. The church was well filled with towns- 
people and students which testified to their appre- 
ciation of the speaker of the evening, President 
Hyde. The President chose for his subject, 
"The college, what it is and what it does." 
Like all of his lectures, this was full of new ideas 
and suggestions for those who heard him. Bow- 
doin men should be proud to be members of a col- 
lege which both in the curriculum of studies which 
it offers and in its method of government, corre- 
sponds so nearly with the definition of a college 
given in the lecture. The music was furnished by 
the college quartet composed of Messrs. Ryan, 
Denning, Cushing and Pike. The music rendered 
by this quartet was much appreciated by all. The 
pleasing feature of the affair was the interested and 
appreciative audience of students who listened to 
President Hyde. It is hoped that they will patron- 
ize the remaining speakers with an equal enthusi- 
asm. 

MEMBERSHIP IN CHRISTIAN ASSOCIA- 
TION. 

Any man of good moral character, regardless of 
his denominational preferences, may become a mem- 
ber of the Christian Association. He not only may 
but should become a member, for any Association 



which has for its purpose the elevation of college 
manhood, is deserving not only of his interest but 
his co-operation. 

The Association feels that at the present time 
there are many men in college who should become 
members but who are not because they have a mis- 
taken idea of its aims. During the coming weeks 
the Association will be glad to receive the name of 
any college man who desires to join. Either hand 
your name to the Association Secretary or to any 
member. Help us to remedy our own inconsisten- 
cies and we will endeavor not only to help you with 
yours but. also to give you a clearer conception of 
your duty toward your college fellows. 



A Quill Editor's Lament. 

It was a merry meeting 

At Merrymeeting Park, 
Where Cobb and Heath and Fairbanks quenched 

The Democratic spark. 
I caught the word "Expansion," 

And then my heart stood still, 
For Fairbanks named the Orient 

And didn't name the Quill. 

Of course we must elect him, 

The country must be saved 
From Pol. Econ. delusions and 

From demagogues depraved ; 
But when I dwell upon it 

It really makes me ill, 
For Fairbanks named the Orient 

And didn't name the Quill. 

— Charles P. Cleaves, '05. 



THEMES. 

During the first semester six themes of at least 
500 words each are required of all Sophomores who 
do not take English 3. The first themes will be due 
October 25. The subjects for the first themes are 
as follows : 

1. The "Pennell Plan" of Enforcing the Pro- 
hibitory Law in Cumberland County. 

2. The Launching of a Battleship. 

3. Senator Hoar the Statesman. 

4. An Editorial Article for the Orient. 

5. A Contrast : Dickens and Thackeray as Nov- 
elists. 



THE TRACK MEET. 

The Orient wishes to remind the students that 
it is only a week now before the Fall Handicap 
Athletic Meet. There are only about forty men 
out trying at present, and this number should be 
doubled. Every fellow who possibly can ought to 
come out and try if only to encourage the others. 
It is only by this method that we can develop a 
winning team, and there is no reason why there 
should not be a larger number out, for we have 
plenty of material in college. A whole week still 
remains before the meet, so let every one that can 
be on the field each day from now on.

Colby Game. 



The Orient wishes to 
congratulate the foot-ball 
team upon the overwhelming victory over 
Colby, Wednesday. The most sanguine 
Bowdoin man hardly dared hope for more 
than a score or two at the most, against the 
unquestionably strong eleven which Colby is 
said to have had all this season; but to win, 
and by such a magnificent score, seemed but a 
dream. In every point of the game, Bowdoin 
outplayed her opponent, and at no time dur- 
ing the game did Colby get near enough our 
goal posts to see whether they were made of 
wood or paper. The work of every man on 
the Bowdoin team was above criticism. We 
are deeply grateful to Coach McClave who 
has wrought wonders, and, we trust, will con- 
tinue to improve the team. 



Sectional Clubs. 



Now that initiations are 



over and the college is 
ready to resume its normal way, it is time to 
forecast ahead and plan for next year's class. 
Of course a certain amount of the work of 
getting men. here goes on all the time, but there 
has been but little systematic organization of 
the forces as yet this fall. Each entering 
class should be larger than its predecessor. 
Bowdoin can never afford to have another 
entering class as small, as the present one, 
enter her cherished gates. There is but one 
way to obtain the desired end, and that way 
is to proceed to systematic fishing for the col- 
lege as a whole. The work can best be done 
through the sectional clubs, organized last 
year, and new clubs to be organized this year. 
We should get to work immediately and reor- 
ganize the old clubs, and organize new ones 
in new fields, thereby making it possible to 
send an invincible host onto every desirable 
field, a host that cannot help but win and by 
winning must redound to Bowdoin's glory. 



A Correction. 



A very thoughtless error 
occurred in last week's 
number of the Orient which we now wish 
to correct. In the editorial ■ entitled "The 
Anniversary of Franklin Pierce," it was 
stated that he was the only President of the 
United States that ever came from the New 
England States. Massachusetts, it will be 
remembered, sent the second president, John 
Adams, and she also sent the sixth President, 
John Quincy Adams. The New England 
States, therefore, claim the honor of having 
given three Presidents to this country. 



Medical School. 



Yesterday the 'Medical 
School opened and al- 
though the number of students is not as yet 
known, it is estimated that there will be , 
between sixty and seventy in the two classes 
here at Brunswick. In former years the rela- 
tionship between the medical and academical 
departments has not been as strong as could 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



w 



be hoped. Last year, however, the students 
entered into a closer feeling of unity than 
ever before and the result was beneficial to 
all. This year should surpass all previous 
years in this respect. Last year the medical 
students did a great deal for the college in 
athletics and we sincerely hope their good 
work in this respect will not be lessened this 
year. It is, therefore, with the greatest pleas- 
ure and the hopes of an ever-increasing 
friendship that we greet the medical students. 



Tennis. 



It is extremely gratifying 
to see so many men out 
for the tennis tournament this fall. We 
have always done well in this branch of ath- 
letics and it devolves upon the student body 
to see that we keep up our good name. This 
fall's tournament has been both interesting 
and profitable for it has caused many who 
never took much interest in the game to look 
upon it more favorably. ( We hope to see 
every man in college, who has ever handled a 
tennis racket, entered in the spring tourna- 
ment. The Orient congratulates the man- 
agement on the success of this tournament 
and hopes that in the spring they will arouse 
even greater interest in the same. 



Winter Lectures. 



For the past few years 
the college has enjoyed 
an ever-increasing number of talks and lec- 
tures by famous men and experts in various 
fields of knowledge. The Orient takes the 
liberty of suggesting to the faculty the filling 
out this year of a regular schedule of lectures. 
We do not mean at all for the faculty to stand 
this added expense. It does seem that the 
lack of system hitherto prevalent in regard to 
this thing might be done away with, by a 
co-operation of the faculty and the various 
clubs and organizations. Actual contact with 
the leaders of various walks of life in the 
great world has just as much influence in 
moulding the character of the college man as 



has text-books and college associations. 
Why not have a meeting of representatives 
from the faculty and various clubs to draw 
up a lecture schedule for this winter. The 
student body would comply with any 
arrangement which these representatives 
should see fit to make. 



A Few Facts. 



A rather interesting piece 
of "news" has been mak- 
ing the rounds of a number of the Maine 
papers purporting to give a history of the foot- 
ball games between Bowdoin and Colby. The 
article in question is credited to a Waterville 
paper and quotes statements made by Dr. 
Jordan on the subject of the Bowdoin-Colby 
games. The particular statement that we 
take exception to is the one that Colby has 
defeated Bowdoin five out of a total of twelve 
games played. The facts of the case are that 
Colby has won but five out of a total of six- 
teen games, and the total score of Bowdoin 
was 338 as against 75 for Colby. While Bow- 
doin is not inclined to boast over the record, 
it is rather tiresome to listen to some ambi- 
tious writer who in his anxiety to sound well 
forgets to take the trouble to look up the 
records. 



We notice with regret 
Freshmen! ^ m of thfi Fresh _ 

Acknowledge , . , 

Upper Class Men. men are backward about 
speaking first to upper- 
classmen, especially those outside of their 
own fraternities. It is only right to remind 
them that they are making a mistake, for it is 
almost impossible for the upperclassmen to 
come to know them unless they take the ini- 
tiative. They should by this time know by 
sight, at least, every man in college and 
should therefore act accordingly. The first 
thing that impressed the writer on his coming 
to Bowdoin was the hearty greetings which 
were exchanged by the students at every 
opportunity. This is something you do not 
see in a large college or university. It is dis- 



140 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



tinctly characteristic of a small college like 
Bowdoin and all should endeavor to keep it 
in existence. 



Hawthorne 
Statue Fund. 



When the Hawthorne 
Statue Fund was started 
it was earnestly hoped by 
the prime movers of the work that the under- 
graduates would show their appreciation of 
the memorial and come forward with 
subscriptions. As yet none have volunteered 
any sums. Naturally the greater burden of 
raising this money falls to alumni and friends 
of the college but the fact that, thus far, the 
subscriptions have been entirely by the 
alumni, should in no way discourage under- 
graduate contribution. No matter how small 
a sum it may be, the amount wil be appre- 
ciated and each one can feel that he had a 
share in the good work. Professor Johnson 
is at all times ready to receive contributions. 

College Botes. 



J. Clair Minot, Class of '96, was on the campus 
last Friday. 

Chester Bavis, '06, has left college to work 
during the first semester. 

Now that initiation work is over the Freshmen 
can begin to settle down to work. 

The Quill appeared Tuesday, a review of which 
will be contained in the next issue. 

There is a movement on foot to erect a memorial 
to Elijah Kellogg, '40, at Harpswell. 

Adjourns were given in geology last Friday on 
account of the absence of Professor Lee. 

John A. Harlow, '03, passed through Brunswick, 
Sunday, on his return from the St. Louis Fair. 

Under the auspices of the Saturday Club Leland 
Powers will appear in Memorial Hall, January 13. 

Several of the students were so fortunate as to 
secure chances to work at the Topsham Fair last 
week. 

The Beta Theta Pi fraternity has recently 
unfurled a handsome flag with its appropriate 
insignia. 

President Hyde's remarks at Sunday chapel 
were confined to a talk on the value of college clubs. 
President Hyde heartily indorses the fraternity as a 
college organization. 



Junior themes have been discontinued. This 
action was taken by vote of the faculty at its last 
meeting. 

A number of the students attended the foot-ball 
game at New Meadows Saturday. Gardiner won 
by a score of 17-0. 

H. C. Hopewell of Cambridge, has been 
admitted to the Sophomore Class. Mr. Hopewell 
comes from Harvard. 

By some oversight of the proof readers the 
Alumni Personals of the Class of 1904 were dated 
1894 in the last issue. 

Adjourns were granted last Friday afternoon in 
order to give every one a chance to visit the 
"World's Fair" at Topsham. 

Last Saturday was a sleepy day about college. 
Scarcely a student could be found about the campus 
during the forenoon hours. 

The next qualifying examination for the Cecil 
Rhodes scholarship at Oxford will be held not later 
than the middle of January, 1905. 

Much, '05, has resigned the managership of the 
Quill, owing to press of other work, and Cleaves, 
'05, has been elected to fill the place. 

Professor Robinson has been chosen as a dele- 
gate from the faculty to represent Bowdoin at the 
convention of New England college presidents. 

Gen. Thomas H. Hubbard, '57, and family 
passed through Brunswick Monday on their way 
from Bar Harbor to their home at Ardlesley-on- 
the-Hudson. 

Columbian University at Washington, D. C, has 
changed its name to George Washington University. 
The change was made because Columbian was often 
confused with Columbia. 

Ballot slips have been filled out by students who 
have attained the age of voting. Out of 56 votes 
the Republicans have 38, Democrats 12, non-parti- 
san S, and Prohibitionists 1. 

A Freshman sums up the political situation as 
follows : "If Judge Parker gets votes enough and 
has no serious pull-backs he will probably be elected, 
otherwise Roosevelt may be." 

Gunning seems to be a favorite sport among the 
students just at present and quite a number of the 
fellows are enjoying it. Partridges seem to be 
plentiful in the neighboring woods. 

■ A favorite diversion of Bowdoin students at the 
Topsham Fair last week was throwing the balls at 
the coon's (or white man's) head. B. F. Briggs 
seemed to carry off the honors, bumping the ball 
against the cranium of some of the candidates in 
such a manner that it must have "jarred" them 
some. 

The faculty have the matter of remodelling the 
courses of the college under consideration at the 
present time. It is planned to have each study a 
uniform three-hour-a-week course. The new 
arrangement will probably not go into effect until 
next year, however. 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



m 



Bowdoin will play Brown at Providence next 
Wednesday. The Orient joins the college in wish- 
ing the team success. 

The following men were taken into the 
Deutscher Verein last night: Pettengill, Hamilton, 
Campbell, Marr, Robbins, Brett, Williams, Don- 
nell, Seavey, Emery, Weld, Hill, and Chase from 
1905 and Soule from 1906. 

The Lewiston Journdl in commenting upon the 
recent Harvard-Bates game says that no other 
Maine college ever held Harvard down to such a 
small score. Maine held Harvard down last year 
6-0. Bowdoin in the last seven years has scored on 
Harvard twice and has held her down to 13-0 in '99 
and 12-0 in 1900. 

Two political clubs, representing the Republican 
and Democratic parties, would find a living interest 
among the other college activities. A large number 
of the fellows have attained the age of voting, and a 
systematic inquiry into the party platforms would 
reap considerable benefit and knowledge. . 

For the past week the Bowdoin College Band 
has been under the able supervision of Howard 
Eaton, a prominent band instructor. The effects 
of his able instruction were clearly shown at the 
Colby-Bowdoin foot-ball game Wednesday, when 
the playing of the band exceeded the expectations 
of its most enthusiastic admirer. Such an organ- 
ization as this is a credit to the college. 

Wednesday night was a glorious occasion for 
Bowdoin. The fellows accompanied by the band 
paraded the principal streets and were greeted by 
enthusiastic speeches by the members of the faculty. 
The old chapel bell which has heralded many a_ vic- 
tory was rung all night. Bonfires and red lights 
were everywhere in evidence and the good old "long 
Bowdoins" were heard long after the midnight 
hour. 

Professor Roberts of Colby in a recent speech 
before the students, says : "According to my arith- 
metic the average Colby boy is worth two or three 
times as much for athletic purposes as the average 
boy in the other Maine Colleges." We would ask 
the Professor what arithmetic he has been studying. 



THE DRAMATIC CLUB. 

A meeting of the Dramatic Club was held Tues- 
day evening, and a committee appointed to select a 
play. Several have been sent for, and a suitable 
one will be chosen from the number. 



DEBATING NOTES. 

Members of the course in Debating should use 
every opportunity to speak from the floor. Now is 
the time to make mistakes, wear off the rough cor- 
ners, and prepare for future effective service in pub- 
lic speaking. Besides, no man can remain a member 
of the course who does not frequently take part in 
the debates. 

Mr. Foster will be in his conference room at 
Hubbard Hall Tuesdays and Thursdays, during the 
morning, for the special purpose of helping men 



with their debates. Other hours may be secured by 
appointment. 

One of the features of the new course which will 
add considerable interest is the plan for intersec- 
tion debates. The fifty men are now divided into 
two sections. These sections will meet twice dur- 
ing the semester for a debate in which one section 
will support the affirmative and the other side the 
negative of the question selected. 

The suggestion has been made for the second 
semester that there be a series of three interclass 
debates for the class championship.

tral went into effect Monday, October 10. Trains

Janvier. The Dutch Founding of New York. 

A popular presentation of the early history of 
New York. At the outset the author seeks to cor-

represented them as "a sleepy tobacco loving and 
schnapps-loving race" and emphasizes instead the 
aggressiveness of these early Dutch founders of 
New York. Several early prints are reproduced.

CLASS OF 1850. 

It is a significant fact in New England political 
life that with the death of Senator Hoar, the dis- 
tinction of longest continuous service in Congress 
passes to another New Englander, Senator William 
P. Frye, '50, of Maine. Other men have been in the 
Senate longer, other men have been in the Senate 
and House longer, but none have had so long an 
unbroken term as Senator Frye. From the time he 
first took his seat in the House, in 1870, he has been 
in Congress continuously. His career in the Sen- 
ate began in 1881. Senator Hale, an honorary 
graduate in the Class of 1869, who stands next in 
order, was elected to the House two years before Mr. 
Frye sat in that body, but Senator Hale was not 
identified with either the Senate or the House in the 
forty-sixth Congress. In point of age, Senator 
Frye is one of the young old men of the Senate. 
May he continue so in spirit. 

MEDICAL, 1866. 

Dr. James W. Lowell of South Portland, died 
last Saturday evening at the age of 62 years, after 
a lingering illness. Dr. Lowell was born in Phipps- 
burg, Me., and is a graduate of Bowdoin Medical 
School. Since graduation he has been engaged in 
practicing his profession in South Portland. He 
leaves a wife and three daughters. 

MEDICAL, 1877. 

Dr. Oscar S. Erskine of Winterport, a promising 
young physician of that town, died on October 9, 
"1904. 

Dr. Erskine was born in Morrill, Me., and after 
completing an early education entered the Maine 
Medical College in the Class of 1887. After gradu- 
ating he settled in the town of Belmont, afterward 
going to Frankfort. In '99 he made a trip to 



Europe to study surgery. About two years ago he 
was stricken with pneumonia and has been failing 
steadily until the end came. A wife, one son 
and brother survive him.

in Mexico during the summer. It was the genuine 
thing, with several bulls killed and many narrow 
escapes for the banderilleros and picadores. Mr. 
Babb is the first American to distinguish ■ himself 
along this line in Mexico, but he writes that while 
it was more exciting than foot-ball he will stick to 
mining in the future. He is to be married this fall,

BRUNSWICK, ME., AND BOWDOIN COLLEGE 

By 

David Frank Atherton, 1901. 

Brunswick, Maine, is the seat of Bowdoin Col- 
lege. The town is situated on the Androscoggin 
river and among its industries are a cotton factory 
and paper mills. From these manufactories on the 
river at the northern end of the town, a broad and 
level street extends southward a mile or more, past 
shops and residences to the campus of the college. 

The author of, the following verses was born in 
Brunswick and in his early manhood returned to his 
native town to pursue his studies in Bowdoin Col- 
lege. The Trinitarian Congregational Church, 
which is situated close to the college campus, and 
which a majority of the students attend is called 
"The Church on the Hill." Previous to 1820 Mas- 
sachusetts included the State of Maine, and Massa- 
chusetts Hall, the oldest of the college buildings, 
was erected -in 1798-1802. For a time it was the 
residence of the first president of the college (Rev. 
Joseph McKeen) and of the entire student body 
(numbering eight) while it also served as chapel 
and recitation rooms. This building was also the 
scene of most of the labor of Professor Parker 
Cleaveland who attained considerable eminence in 
the sciences of Mineralogy, Geology and Chemistry 
and who served the college from 1805 till his death 
in 1858. His grave is close beside the college cam- 
pus, marked by a weeping willow tree and a mas- 
sive funeral stone bearing on one side in dignified 
raised letters simply the name "Parker Cleaveland," 
while on one end in similar manner is recorded the 
year of his birth, "1780," and on the other end the 
year of his death "1858." In 1875 when the poet 
Longfellow visited Brunswick to attend the fiftieth 
anniversary of the graduation of his class from 
Bowdoin he walked over to the grave of his well 
remembered teacher and composed that famous son- 
net on Parker Cleaveland, a piece of verse familiar 
to every lover of Longfellow. 



"None I remember more serene and sweet, 
More rounded in itself and more complete." 

. "when his example made 
A pastime of the toil of tongue and pen." 

The buildings mentioned in the following verses 
are, in the order of their notice, together with the 
college dormitories, grouped around a level and 
spacious campus and constitute what President 
Hyde has well said "already promises to rival in 
beauty and surpass in practical efficiency the quad- 
rangles of the colleges at Oxford and Cambridge." 
King Chapel is a Romanesque church from which 
rise twin towers and spires to a height of one hun- 
dred and twenty feet. Hubbard Hall is the richly 
appointed new library building. The Walker Art 
Building exhibits the art collections of the college 
while the Searles Science Building, consisting of 
distinct departments for branches of natural science, 
bears on the capstone over its main entrance this 
inscription : 

Nature's Laws are God's Thoughts. 

Memorial Hall is a memorial to the graduates and 
students of the college who served in the War of 
the Rebellion. 

Town so well lov'd ; thy ev'ry scene is fair; 

From flying wheels at river bank, 
Along the street, past shop and green, e'en where 

From scholars' fountain pure have drank 
Pure hearts and souls, and richest minds — too rare ! 

Thought of the past ; in mem'ry still I hear 
The old-time sound of college days, 

Sounds from my school and native town — how 
dear ! 
Those happy years of college ways 

Were fair and bright and heaven then was near. 

Thy river widened toward the sea, 

Through meadows green to find the bay; 

And now as often mem'ry brings to me 
This scene. I think, and feel, and say 

Thank God for this — I found my birth by thee ! 

"Church on the Hill ;" thy steepl'd bell has rung, 
As earnest lives have sought thy care 

And class by class their joyful songs have sung 
While for their strength has been thy prayer — 

A noble service to sturdy men still young. 

Thou oldest hall ; with reddened walls so strong 
The early teacher's home and school — 

Scene of labor where in service long 
Another toiled, through heat and cool. 

In yonder grave he joined the mighty silent throng. 

Ye weeping tree ; graceful, mourning o'er the dead 

Thy near-by stone is set to mark 
The spot where sleeps one in his earthy bed 

Who unto Nature's voice did hark 
And in earth and stone God's message read.' 

To this holy spot long years ago there came 

A singer slow and white and old. 
Half a century before his youthful name 

Thine eye and class list might have told, 
Thou taught him before thy diviner fame. 



J44 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



Here sang he of thy life, so calm and sweet, 

So strong and rich, so nobly pure 
That toil seemed play in a life complete — 

To a life with truth mature ; 
God bless the guidings of thy gracious feet. 

Ye lofty spires; preserve and guard that spot 
Where thoughts, toward God ascending, 

Have ruled the lives, and weakened not 
The manhood's strength, which blending 

With tender deeds, have ever blest man's lot. 

Thou newer form ; thou noble Hubbard Hall ; 

Thy scholar's richest atmosphere, 
From "distant busy life, will ever call 

Us back to mother dear, 
Often with sweeter voice than others all. 

Fair hall of Art; thy great treasures, I salute; 

Thy classic sculptured forms of old 
And Nature's scenes, and painted lines so muK 

Their subtile work on some has told. 
For sweetest flowers still we look above the root. 

Shrine of "Nature's Laws" — "Thoughts" of God 
set free; 

Deepest mysteries thou hast told 
And eager minds great laws have learned in thee. 

Armed with thy power men are bold 
And God's ways seem right to clear eyes that see. 

Memorial to heroes' lives now gone, 

The nation's noble sons so true, 
Brave men — we must their bitter loss not mourn. 

Still ever, when their kind, so few, 
Leave severed ties, our hearts and souls are torn. 

Oh, colleges scenes ; my eyes with tears grow dim, 

For thou hast ever blest our ways 
And loving thee, through life' we'll walk with Him 

Who bore the cross in other days — 
And serve thee both with mind and heart and limb. 

O, fairest town and college dear, I see 
Thy shaded streets and stately halls, 

And now whenever mem'ry brings to me 
Thy features fair, midst duty's calls 

I'll strive and pray thy worthy son to be.

COLBY TO BE A WOMAN'S COLLEGE. 

The laying of the corner-stone of the Eliza A. 
Foss dormitory for women at Colby College, seems 
to mark a step forward in the higher education of 
women in Maine. The girls are there to stay, but it 
is not to be "co-educational' 'in the full sense of the 
term as understood and practiced in Bates, Tufts, 
and other colleges who admit women. As outlined 
by Judge Bonney, the plan of the trustees is to 
establish a separate and independent college for 
women with its own educational buildings and 
accommodations equal to those for the men. The 
completion of the dormitory will be the substantial 
beginning of the women's college, and to carry out 
the design a recitation hall and other buildings will 
be needed, together with endowment for their sup- 
port.

EXTRACT FROM REV. MR. JUMP'S AD- 
DRESS, "THE MASTERY OF ELO- 
QUENCE," SARGENT S. PRENTISS, 
'26. 

It was a mild spring day in a country village of 
Mississippi and the crowded streets indicated some 
peculiar attraction. Following the streams of people 
we should be drawn toward a circus tent in the 
central square or market-place where an orator was 
being listened to with rapt attention. A multitude 
waited on his words. As the orator's passion broke 
forth in more eager speech the audience burst into 
applause. This 'excited *the menagerie. The ele- 
phant flung up his trunk and began to trumpet, the 
tigers and bears responded in deep growls. Now 
and then the speaker would drive his cane down 
through the ventilating holes of the hyena cage upon 
which he stood and from its occupant would come 
a wild and piercing yell. "Do you hear?" cried the 
orator, "even the beasts of the forest raise their 
voices in condemnation of this outrage upon your 
dearest and most cherished rights !" At that 
moment the lion who had hitherto in royal dig- 
nity held his peace added a terrific roar to the con- 
fusion. Women shrieked, men began to feel ner- 
vous, but Prentiss made even the lion his ally. 
"We bid you welcome," he said apostrophizing the 
king of beasts, "welcome to our holy alliance, and 
right gladly hail the applause of such a representa- 
tive of the brute creation." And so the orator con- 
tinued using every detail of his surroundings as 
grist for his mill, darting from humor to pathos, 
from argument to sarcasm with lightning speed, 
with the result, the record says, that the presence 
of this circus which he used so skilfully to his 
advantage gained for him that one afternoon more 
than a hundred votes. 

Such a picture showing Prentiss with his wit 
and versatility, his knowledge of men, 'and mastery 
of the situation, actually at work in his chosen pro- 
fession, that of a popular orator swaying masses of 
humanity to his will, does more than pages of inter- 
pretation could accomplish in bringing us face to 
face with this personality. Sargent S. Prentiss was 
distinctly and pre-eminently an orator, and in the 
days when Webster, Clay and Everett shone as 
stars, he was esteemed the peer of them all. 

He was born at Portland, Me., on that Casco 
Bay which he himself once called "the fairest dim- 
ple in ocean's cheek." While yet a lad he devoted 
himself to intellectual pursuits with astounding suc- 
cess and was a voracious reader. Nor is it improb- 
able that the ministry of Rev. Edward Payson, one 
of the noted preachers of his day in Portland, 
helped to mould this young man's mind. Entering 
the Junior Class of Bowdoin College, Prentiss was 
graduated in 1826. After college he went West as 
a teacher, meanwhile studying law. Later he drifted 
to Mississippi where he continued to teach and study 



law, until finally he was admitted to the bar and 
commenced a career of dramatic interest. On the 
occasion of his first plea before a jury, his power 
as a speaker was so conspicuous that the culprit 
who was condemned in consequence of his prosecu- 
tion declared, "If an angel of light were put on trial 
and that man were the prosecutor, the verdict 
would go against the angel." This first triumph 
was followed by an almost unbroken succession of 
forensic victories until his fame became a word to 
conjure by. If record is to be trusted the content 
of his speeches had no less potency to draw than his 
personality. Rich in metaphor and yet clear in 
logic, they represent a high type of that oratory 
which was both newspaper and school to those that 
listened. So Sargent Prentiss lived, and earned his 
fame by his power of speech ; and after he died, so 
tender were the thoughts inspired by his memory 
that it saved from destruction "Rakeby," the south- 
ern plantation where he began, his life in the south. 
For when during the Civil War a Federal colonel 
led his troops into that region of Mississippi he for- 
bade their entering the yard, looking upon it as hal- 
lowed ground. "Men," he said, "in that house 
Prentiss taught his first school in Mississippi. Let 
nothing about it be disturbed." 

Prentiss stands in his American history chiefly 
and almost solely for the mastery of eloquence. 
Nor was it eloquence inspired by noble and heroic 
ideals, and wrought out of deep convictions in 
times of stern moral conflict. He was no Demos- 
thenes nor Cicero, nor yet was he a Phillips or a 
Beecher, burning with a passion straight from 
Heaven. Prentiss exhibited what can be accom- 
plished by human speech used for purposes of per- 
suasion on the more every day planes of life, and 
that is no small service. His public addresses were 
ordinarily political in the partisan sense, and his 
success was the politician's success rather than the 
statesman's. Since his day times have changed. 
To-day we have nothing in political life correspond- 
ing to the influence Prentiss and other orators of 
his day exerted simply by virtue of their persuasive 
speech. 

But there is a sphere where the spoken word is 
still given the right of way, viz., religion. How 
wonderful that men who shrink from attending 
more than two or three political speeches in a cam- 
paign are yet ready to go week after week to hear 
a speaker and that, too, the same speaker deal with 
the hackneyed theme of religion. What does this 
mean? Nothing less than that religion, which is a 
personal relation is best exhibited in persons ; that 
here the interpretative power of personality, taking 
the truth and making it glow into a revelation, is a 
power which the race will never do without. Elo- 
quence when it moves among divine things need 
have no fear for its audience. Men listened to 
Amos and Isaiah and Hosea, the religious orators 
of ancient Israel. Men listened to Augustine and 
Chrysostom, to Francis and Savonarola, to Luther 



U6 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



and Calvin, to Wesley and Whitefield, to Spurgeon, 
Beecher, Drummond and Brooks. Yes, men listened 
to the masterful eloquence of Jesus of Nazareth, 
and they have listened to every lineal successor of 
the Master whose heart has been fired with the 
same redemptive message, whose faith has pointed 
the soul towards the same radiant future, whose life 
has been hid with, and has drunk its strength from 
the same Almighty God. And they will continue to 
listen whenever soul pleads with soul, mightily and 
unselfishly on the deep issues of life and eternity. 



BOWDOIN 52, COLBY, 0. 

A husky lot of boys, full of confidence and grit, 
Came all the way from Waterville to make old 

Bowdoin quit, 
But when the game was ended it was fifty-two to — 

nit, 
For Bowdoin was in her ancient glory. 
Hurrah ! hurrah ! Then shout the Bowdoin cry ; 
Hurrah ! hurrah ! And wave her flag on high. 
For Bowdoin pluck is never stuck, 
Her motto "do or die," 
And we will follow her to glory. 

— Alumnus. 



NEW FACULTY REGULATIONS. 

The following new regulations were adopted at 
the Faculty meeting last Monday : 

The regulation formerly reading: "That a man 
must have two major courses, one major and two 
minors, or four minors," has been changed so that 
it now reads as follows : 

"Each student must elect during his college 
course either (1) a major and two minor courses, 
or (2) two major courses." 

A major course is one subject pursued for three 
years; a minor, one subject pursued for two years. 



Brown, 22 ; Bowdoin, o. 

Brown defeated Bowdoin at Providence, 
Wednesday, by the score 22-0. A full account of 
the game will appear in the next issue. 



N. E. I. G. TOURNAMENT. 

The annual tournament of the New England 
Intercollegiate Golf Association was held over the 
Springfield Country Club course on October 
19-22. Amherst, Williams, Dartmouth, Brown, 
Technology and Bowdoin were represented. 
Amherst won the team match and Anderson, an 
Amherst man, won the individual championship. 
Upton, '07, was tenth out of twenty-five partici- 
pants in the qualifying round for the individual 
championship. 



BOWDOIN-COLBY FOOT-BALL SERIES. 

This year's foot-ball game with Colby in which 
Bowdoin won such an overwhelming victory, was

1899, with the exception of 1894, there were two 
games each fall. Of the 19 games, Bowdoin has 
won 12, Colby has won 5 and 2 have been ties. 
Bowdoin has scored 390 points and Colby 75. Fol- 
lowing is the detailed list of the games.

BOWDOIN-MAINE FOOT-BALL SERIES. 

The fall of 1893 marks the first time a Bowdoin 
eleven ever played Maine. October 26 of that year, 
the Sophomore eleven, after having played a game 
at Bangor the day previous, defeated Maine by the 
score 12-10. The second game was played in 1896 
and with the exception of the following yea^ there

REVIEW OF THE OCTOBER QUILL. 

Taken as a whole the October Quill is a good 
issue, although there are some things which rather 
fall below the standard of excellence. The stories 
are very good, the Quill prize story easily excelling 
the other two. In the poetry there is more of a 
contrast, a mixture of both good and bad. The 
Goose Tracks are spicy and entertaining, dealing 
with some suggestive questions of college life just 
as they should. The contributions of Ye Postman 
we think are rather poorer than usual, although 
the way they were introduced was both original and 
entertaining. We notice with regret that Ye Post- 
man carries over from last spring the idea of sign- 
ing his initials, a not altogether commendable thing 
for an editor to do. The Orient and the college at 
large hopes that the old-time silhouettes are not to 
be allowed to die without at least an attempt to

revive them. Turning now to the contributions. 
"The Prodigal" is a /very well written story, 
indeed. The only thing to be complained of is a too 
general construction of the plot. A little more 
specificness would hold the reader closer. On the 
whole, however, the story is one of the best the 
author has yet contributed. A short poem of four 
verses, entitled "Beginning," follows "The Prodi- 
gal." As a whole the poem is somewhat below the 
average. Especially poor is the first stanza, where 
one has to struggle hard to get the thought and the 
connection with the title. And in the second stanza 
too, the thought is somewhat confused, for is npt 
helping a friend in trouble pointing towards the 
shadowless shore? Another story, "A Simple Trag- 
edy" follows this poem. The style is excellent, and 
the plot, although a rather hackneyed one, is enter- 
taining. The chief fault with this story is a very 
weak ending.- The Quill Prize Poem, "Winter 
Song," follows next. The poem is one of the best 
bits of verse the author has yet contributed. We 
would criticise the second stanza as a bit crude in 
construction causing a little confusion in the 
reader's mind. "Jack's Duty" follows next. , This little 
storiette is written in rather poorer style than the two 
former stories, but is, on the whole, easily and neat- 
ly told. The plot, however, is one which has been 
repeatedly printed in the Quill. The last of the 
contributions is a poem entitled "Day by Day." It is 
a noble thought and simply written. 



CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION ITEMS. 

The regular weekly meeting of the Christian 
Association for October twenty, was conducted 
by Boodv, '06. The topic for consideration was 
"Decision of Character." The subject was one of 
vital interest to every college man and was well set 
forth by Mr. Boody. The attendance at these 
meetings is increasing gradually, but still there is 
room for more college men. Where can you spend 
a half-hour more profitably than in discussion of a 
fundamental question with your college fellows? 

SUNDAY TALK. 

Sunday afternoon the service was held at the 
regular hour. The speaker, Mr. Foster, addressed 
the Association on the pursuit of pleasure. The 
talk was direct, forcible and full of 'suggestions of 
exceedingly great value to all college men. The 
worth of all great and good things, the true 
source of all real happiness and pleasure in the 
world — was the central theme of the talk. Keith 
Ryan, '05, rendered a solo, which, as usual, was 
much appreciated by his audience. In supporting 
these services which are to be held occasionally, 
the Association earnestly solicits the interest of the 
college body. 

BIBLE STUDY. 

The Bible study committee, Webber, '06, Stev- 
ens, '08, and Mincher, '07, are preparing attractive 
and helpful courses of study. If you wish to join 
any of these classes just hand your name to one of 
these men. 

FACTS FROM OTHER COLLEGES. 

At Yale the Association has an enrollment of 350 
men in its Bible classes, also an average attendance 
of 450 at the various services. 



The Association for the Japanese and Chinese 
at Shanghai, has an enrollment of 356 men engaged 
in the study of the Bible. 

The Association in Indiana colleges has an 
enrollment of 1725 men. 

The Christian Association movement is not one 
which stops for summer vacations, for during the 
past summer months some of its most potent work 
has been in progress. The work referred to is that 
of summer conferences at which the work of the 
Association is gone over in detail. Study classes 
are conducted; lectures by the most distinguished 
speakers the country can furnish are listened to ; 
and this is supplemented by athletic sports which 
are indulged in by the finest athletes in American 
colleges. Ten of these conferences were held dur- 
ing the past season, as follows : The Northfield 
Conference for the eastern colleges ; the Lake 
Erie Conference for the Middle West; the Lake 
Geneva Conference in the West ; the Waynesville 
Conference for the South ; the Conference at 
Gearhart Park, Oregon, for the Pacific coast ; the 
Conference of the Young Women's Christian Asso- 
ciation of Lake Geneva ; the Conference of the Brit- 
ish College Union in the Lake District in England 
which was attended by delegates from every 
country in Protestant Europe. Three have been 
held in China ; the Nan- King Conference ; the 
Kraugman Conference ; Tsingtao and Peitailis. Do 
we fully appreciate the work of the Association 
until we consider that it is international in its scope, 
and that its purpose is to prepare men for the ser- 
vice of society of whatever type or whatever it 
needs.

Fraternity Night. 



One matter that has been 



receiving discussion of 
late, is the suggestion made to change the 
night of the regular fraternity meeting from 
Friday to some earlier day in the week. 
Entertainments and college affairs seem to 
have a great tendency to band themselves on 
this night of all others. And then the half 
holiday on the following Saturday causes in 
many cases no recitations at all and makes for 
many the strong — and perhaps only natural — 
temptation to cut the fraternity meeting and 
go home. At Amherst Tuesday night is reg- 
ularly set aside for these gatherings known as 
"Goat night." Wednesday has been named 
as most convenient and least conflicting. The 
time seems ripe for a change of this kind here 
at Bowdoin. 



It is seldom that the 
Commencement ,-. . ,, , 

H Orient is called upon to 

disagree with the authori- 
ties of the college, but we must take exception 
to their proposed idea' of doing away with 
the practice of placing on the commencement 
program, on a line by itself above those who 
have made summa cum laude, the name of the 
student who obtained the best rank in his col- 
lege course. That this, the highest and 
purest honor any student can earn, — highest, 
because representing in its truest sense the 
result of four years of unceasing labor; 
purest, because not trammelled by any motive 
of tangible gain — that this should be taken 
away seems an injustice. The man who 
attains this rank is by no means always the 
one who has won the most prizes. He is not 
one who by exclusive devotion to one subject 
under a material stimulus, has earned a money 
reward. Rather is he one who possesses that 
much rarer quality of being able to do many 
things and do them all well. The honor is 
sought for the honor itself, striven after by 
unremitting labor during the college course, 
and we hope that he, who has attained truly 
this highest goal that any man can win in 
college, will not be deprived of this simple 
outward symbol of his work and his success. 



Inter=CIass It has been suggested by 

Debates. Mr. Foster in a previous 

issue that a series of interclass debates be 
held in the debating course during the sec- 
ond semester. We again bring this before 
the attention of the students in hopes that 
they will talk the matter over and lend their 
aid toward the carrying out of this idea. The 
four chief disputants in each class could be 
chosen by trials or in any other manner that 
is agreeable to the members of the course. 
Debates of this nature would be of more than 
ordinary interest because of the strong class 
spirit which has always prevailed at Bow- 
doin. If all the students were allowed to 
attend still greater interest would be shown 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



149 



in these debates. The disputants would then 
be on their mettle and excellent training 
would be given for intercollegiate debates. 



Chapel Pranks. 



In chapel one day last 



^eek, President Hyde 
informed the college that he desired all future 
pranks and fantastic costumes confined to 
regions outside of the chapel. The chapel, 
he said, was dedicated to and meant for the 
worship of God and must be kept for that use 
alone. The President was certainly right and 
the college^ should heartily co-operate in giv- 
ing the proper air of respect to the worship of 
God. Besides respect, there is the good name 
of the college at stake. If some of the foolish 
things get noised abroad which have taken 
place recently, it will certainly lower the 
standing of the college in outside minds. 



Rubbish. 



The first thing that a 
stranger notices on com- 
ing to Bowdoin is the magnificence of the 
buildings. Hubbard Hall, the Walker Art 
Museum and the Searles building, would 
grace the campus of any other college. 

The attention is probably next turned to 
the dormitories. These are by no means 
elaborate, but they are comfortable and make 
no pretensions. Higher ones are found in 
the majority of colleges. The buildings 
themselves, therefore, do not create any 
unfavorable impression. There is one thing, 
however, which any chance observer would 
instantly notice, and that is the rubbish 
thrown around these buildings by the stu- 
dents. It is omnipresent and never entirely 
absent. It comes under every classification 
known to an expert ragman. Paper predom- 
inates, glass is a close second and discarded 
clothes are not far in the rear. 

You find it under the windows, on the 
paths, and even on the grass. Enter the 
buildings and you find it there in greater 
force. Why don't the janitor clean it up, you 



say? Simply because new rubbish is thrown 
around almost before the old is removed. 
Four janitors to an End, and a rubbish brig- 
ade under every windw would have hard 
work to keep it out of sight. 

Since, then, this rubbish is an eyesore to 
strangers, it should be worse than that for the 
undergraduates. Rubbish will accumulate, 
but if put in the proper places it will be dis- 
posed of before it has become a nuisance. Let 
each man, therefore, try to do his best in 
regard to this matter. He will then oblige 
both Faculty and students by adding to the 
neatness of our beautiful campus. 



Faculty Hours. 



Out of convenience to the 



Freshmen and even the 
upper class men, at times, it comes as a sug- 
gestion from the Orient that the Faculty have 
regular calling hours when they can be con- 
sulted on matters pertaining to the college 
work. President Hyde and Professor Files 
are the only members of the board who have 
regular hours. It is only by this means that 
they can always be found when wanted by the 
students. Particularly at the beginning of the 
year when the new men are seeking for infor- 
mation from the Faculty would such a scheme 
find approval among the undergraduates. 



Lieut. Peary. 



Bowdoin men should feel 
a deep and genuine interest 
in the endeavors of Lieutenant Peary in his 
attempt to penetrate the Far North. Lieu- 
tenant Peary is one of the best known sons of 
Bowdoin living at the present day and he has 
distinguished himself in a line of work that 
but few men in the history of the world has 
ever cared to undertake, and he should be 
honored for. it. It has been suggested that it 
would be an admirable plan to have Lieuten- 
ant Peary visit the college and address the stu- 
dent body. It would seem that this would be 
an admirable plan, as in this way the under- 
graduate body would have an opportunity to 



*50 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



come in touch with this famous alumnus of 
Bovvdoin, as well as learn something of the 
great work he is engaged in. 



Foot-Ball. 



More men are needed for 
the foot-ball squad and it 
is a most discouraging not to say disgraceful 
condition of affairs. After a team has accom- 
plished what the Bowdoin team did in the 
Colby game and then not to have the sup- 
port of the student body is certainly a most 
discreditable thing. Possibly you think that 
the team is in good shape and that it does not 
need your help. In that supposition you are 
right wrong. The fact is that the team needs 
you more than ever. Did it ever occur to you 
that the responsibility is much greater when a 
team has a possibility of accomplishing some- 
thing than when it has not? What a shame 
it would be now not to put the team in the 
best possible condition for the remaining 
Maine games and lose the championship by 
such stupidity. Better give up the game alto- 
gether some year when we have no prospects 
than do this. The team needs help. Will 
you respond? Think it over — but don't spend 
too much time in thinking. 



College Orchestra. 



Now that we have a col- 



lege band why can't we 
have a college orchestra? To be sure, there 
is a musical organization in town which is 
k^own as the college orchestra, but in its 
make-up there are only two or three under- 
graduates. There is no reason why we can't 
have a college orchestra, composed entirely of 
undergraduates. There is no question as 
regards ability, for there is plenty of talent 
among the students. If some of the more 
experienced would only take hold of this 
project and encourage the rest, an orchestra 
of ten or a dozen pieces could be formed 
easily. 



THE FALL TRACK MEET. 

To-morrow the Fall Handicap Meet will 
be held on the Athletic Field, and everyone 
who can possibly be there ought to feel it his 
duty to go out and encourage the men. They 
have worked hard and long, and it is nothing 
more than they deserve. In former years the 
meet has created no great amount of inter- 
est, a fact that we should not feel proud of. 
To-morrow let us try to make it a red-letter 
day. There is always plenty of enthusiasm 
aroused over the Indoor Meet, and it should 
be the same with this. If we can only 
develop greater class spirit and take hold of 
the meet more in a body there will be no 
cause for complaint. This can be done by 
going to the field to-morrow and cheering the 
men. If we do this we will not onlyencourage 
them, but we will also be aiding the Athletic 
Association in whose interest the meet is 
held. The management has incurred an 
extra heavy expense this fall by having a 
coach and therefore needs greater financial 
support than last year. Let everyone come 
out to-morrow, then, and render a double 
service to the college. 



DEBATING NOTES. 

An amusing incident happened in the debate of 
last Tuesday, when one of the speakers revived Li 
Hung Chang as a present ruler of China, and 
declared that "if he is not alive to the situation, no 
one is." The other side on the debate commended 
the argument as "a flattering obituary notice." 

It is suggested that the affirmative speakers stand 
always at the right of the platform and the negative 
at the left — for the convenience of the audience. 

Members of one section may attend the debates 
of the other section, and they may speak if time 
permits. 

On Monday and Tuesday evenings of next week, 
just before the Presidential election, debates will 
be held on the issues of the campaign. These 
promise to be full of life and interest. Abundant 
material is reserved on the Debating Shelves in the 
Reference Room. 

Analysis, evidence and concreteness — these are 
now the by-words of the course. 



DEUTSCHER VEREIN. 

At a meeting of the Deutscher Verein held at 
New Meadows Inn Thursday, October 20, the fol- 
lowing officers were elected :

BANGOR, SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5. 

College IRotes. 

Next comes Hallowe'en — the Sophomores say all 
is serenp. 

Gymnasium will begin immediately after 
Thanksgiving. 

Dr. Bennett has been appointed assistant regis- 
trar for the ensuing year. 

The Fall Handicap Athletic Meet occurs to-mor- 
row. Let everyone be on the field. 

James F. Cox and Harvey Winslow are coach- 
ing the Brunswick High School foot-ball team. 

The sun dial in front of Massachusetts Hall is 
creating considerable attention lately — it is time. 

Certain members of the faculty say it is about 

time for the Cuban cigar representative to show up. 

Roy H. Flynt, U. of M., '04, was the guest of 

friends on the campus, last Saturday and Sunday. 

A number of the students saw the "Girl from 
Kay's" at the Empire Theatre, Lewiston, Monday 
night. 

The campus is having a long "smoke" It has 
been "smoking" now with dry leaves for the last 
two weeks. 

"Joe" Pendleton, Class of 1890, was one of the 
officials at the Amherst-Brown game last Saturday 
at Providence. 

James K. Hassett, who officiated so excellently 
at the base-ball games last spring, has signed with 
the American League. 

The Lewiston Journal in reporting the Bow- 
doin-Colby game, persists in speaking of the "black 
and white" of Bowdoin. 

Martin Luther was professor in college for two 
years and had only one coat. It is quite evident 
that Mikelsky was not in college then: 

Mike Madden has deserted the Democrats and 
will vote for Roosevelt this fall. We sincerely 
hope Mike will be rewarded with a medal. 

Freshmen attending services at the "Church on 
the Hill" are supposed to sit in the last two forms 
of the north gallery. The first two forms are for 
the Juniors. 

The Colby team was unable to play its game 
with Fort Preble at Portland last Saturday, owing 
to the poor condition of the men after the Bowdoin 
game. 

At a meeting of the Brunswick and Topsham 
Choral Society held last week Stephen C. Whit- 
more, '75, was elected president, and Professor 
Chapman vice-president. 

Charles Scribner's Sons have sold a great 
number of sets of Kipling and Stevenson to the fel- 
lows this last week, through the glibness and per- 
suasion of their representative. 



INTER-CLASS TRACK MEET ON WHITTIER 
FIELD TO-MORROW AFTERNOON. 



Hatch, '06, who has played right guard on the 
foot-ball team this fall, has left college. 

The Saturday Club are to hold their entertain- 
ments and course of lectures this year in the Uni- 
tarian Church, in place of the Pythian Hall, which 
has been used in former cases. 

There is nothing that pleases a Bowdoin under- 
graduate more than to read one of Arthur Staples', 
'82, write-ups of a Bowdoin victory in the Lewiston 
Journal unless it be the victory itself. 

The plays from which one will be selected by 
the Dramatic Club are : His Excellency, the Gov- 
ernor ; The Gilded Fool; Confusion; Because She 
Loved Him So, and Christopher, Jr. 

William B. Webb has been elected as the dele- 
gate from the Bowdoin Chapter of the Delta Kappa 
Epsilon fraternity, to attend the national convention, 
which is to be held in Chicago in November. 

The Lewiston Journal attributes Bowdoin's vic- 
tory over Colby to persistent and well organized 
cheering. That may have been the cause, but it 
looked as if the men on the field had something to 
do with it. 

The Freshmen have not only removed the white 
buttons from their caps, but have also removed 
their skull caps and are now going through the 
■campus with hats, anywhere from a broad-rimmed 
to a derby. 

For almost the first time in our memory a reput- 
able stock company has come to Brunswick. The 
Bennett-Moulton Company with a high-class reper- 
toire has been playing every evening of this week 
in the Town Hall. 

Williams, '05, Ryan, '05, Piper, '06, Sargent, '07, 
Harvey and Seavey, '05, are the principal actors in 
the drama "Above the Clouds" which will be pre- 
sented November 3 under the auspices of the Young 
People's Union of the Universalist Church. 

W. W. Pennell of Bangor, who was engaged 
several weeks ago to make a careful examination of 
the Maine street bridge which connects Brunswick 
and Topsham, reports that a new span must be put 
on the Brunswick end of the bridge before it will be 
safe. 4 

Prof. F. C. Robinson has been elected a dele- 
gate to attend the meeting of the American Public 
Health Association which will take place at 
Havana, Cuba, the second week in January. He is 
a member of the Executive Committee of this Asso- 
ciation. 

Get out for foot-ball practice. The team needs 
you. Better teams than ours have lost champion- 
ships through over-confidence as the result of a 
walkover the first of the season. Do you want it to 
happen to us? If not, do your duty by donning the 
moleskin. 

A great number of the student body witnessed 
the game between Bates and Maine, last Saturday 
at Lewiston. The general opinion was that the 
game was not an especially interesting one, despite 



i52 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



the close score. Although the teams were very 
evenly matched, some of the playing was decidedly 
slow and there was also some poor playing on both 
sides. 

The Junior Guild of the St. Paul's Episcopal 
Church are to present "Evangeline" in the town 
hall at an early date. Many of the students take 
part. It is under the direction of Mrs. Roden- 
baugh, who had charge of the "Ladies' Minstrels" 
which, it will be remembered, was presented by the 
Saturday Club last winter. 

It is learned from good authority that the 
Faculty have under consideration a plan, to take 
effect next year, by which each student will be 
required to take five courses a year. There is a dif- 
ference of opinion among the members of the 
Faculty, but it is a safe prediction that there is no 
division among the students on this. 

Economics 3 took the examination scheduled for 
Thursday forenoon on Friday — a rather agreeable 
change after the celebration of the Colby game. 
Prof. McCrea hopes to have both divisions meet at 
a single hour for its Saturday recitations some time 
in the future. All agree with the professor that a 
11.30 recitation on Saturday is the worst hour in 
the college week. 

Next to college loyalty with the undergraduate 
should stand class loyalty. Be loyal to your class 
and show your spirit by attending the class meet- 
ings. A certain class last week called a meeting 
and only seventeen responded ! This is disgrace- 
ful. It is a part of every man's duty to take part 
in the work of his class. Let this work not be 
neglected. 

The annual meeting of the Maine Intercollegiate 
Athletic Board was held at Waterville last Satur- 
day. Representatives of Bates, Colby and Maine 
were present. Bowdoin not being a member of 
the board was not represented. William Garcelon, 
an alumnus of Bates, was re-elected president, and 
Professor Bailey of Colby, secretary and treasurer. 
The principal business was a discussion of the inter- 
pretation of the eligibility rule. This matter was left 
with a committee consisting of undergraduate rep- 
resentatives of the three colleges present. 



BOSTON CONGEGATIONAL CLUB. 

At the Congregational Club in Boston on Mon- 
day last Bowdoin College was somewhat in evi- 
dence. The president for the present year is S. B. 
Carter of '66, and Professor H. L. Chapman of the 
same class gave a very interesting address on the 
topic, "The Conservative Half." Mr. Edward 
Stanwood of the -Board of Trustees and President 
of the Boston Alumni Association, and Judge 
Charles U. Bell of the Board of Overseers, were 
present as invited guests upon the platform. This 
is the largest club of its kind in the country hav- 
ing a membership of nearly five hundred — several 
of whom are Bowdoin men. 



LIBRARY BOOKS RECENTLY ADDED. 

Hyde, W. DeW. From Epicurus to Christ. 

Reproduces, in the way of quotation and 
extended comment, the teachings of Epicurus, the 
Stoics, Plato, Aristotle and Jesus Christ. These 
teachings are characterized as "The Epicurean pur- 
suit of pleasure, genial but ungenerous ; the Stoic 
law of self-control, strenuous but forbidding; the 
Platonic plan of subordination, sublime but ascetic ; 
the Aristotelian sense of proportion, practical but 
uninspiring; and the Christian spirit of love, broad- 
est and deepest of them all." (i70:Hioi) 

Warne, F. J. The Slav Invasion. 

Treats of the enormous influx of the Slav races 
into the hard-coal mining regions of Pennsylvania 
and of the opposition existing between these races 
and the English speaking mine workers. The 
author attaches much importance to the efforts of 
the United Mine Workers of America to unite the 
races on the ground of common interests. (331.8:- 
W 24) 

Benson, E. F. Daily Training. 

An interesting example of joint authorship on 
a subject of practical and general importance. In 
spite of minor differences the authors are agreed on 
the essentials for physical development and they 
discuss for the benefit of the person who does not 
have an opportunity for prolonged physical train- 
ing the subjects of "Diet and Stimulants," "Water, 
Heat and Light," "Sleep, Rest and Relaxation," and 
"Training for Special Events." (613.7:644) 

Pearson, H. Q. Life of John A. Andrew. 

This is a full and, what promises to be an 
authoritative life of one who is known as the "War 
Governor of Massachusetts." The author has had 
access to private correspondence and public 
archives and has freely introduced letters and anec-

The title suggests in part the subject matter of 
this volume. It is made up of tales and adventures 
concerning the lumbermen of Maine. All of the 
stories are true and are held to be typical, not 
merely of the individuals concerned but of the lum- 
bermen as a class. (M 196: 20)

oping rapidly under the efficient leadership of P. F. 
Chapman, '06. There are many vacancies to be 
filled, four of last year's mandolin and three guitar 
players having graduated. This gives an excellent 
opportunity for new men to make the club. Every 
man who can do anything at all with the man- 
dolin or guitar is urged to come out and try for 
the club. The candidates at present are as follows : 
Eaton and Henderson, '05 ; D. B. Andrews, Clark, 
Boothby, Woodruff, Stetson, Winchell and Web- 
ber, '06, T. Winchell, Bass, Sargent, Goodhue, 
Neal, Kimball, Chandler, Weed, Haines and Hope- 
well, '07, and J. Green, ex-'03, Med. '08. 



DR. DUDLEY SARGENT'S. '75, NEW BOOK. 

A book has lately come to the hands of the edi- 
tors from the H. M. Caldwell Co. of Boston, which 
should be of interest to all Bowdoin men. The 
title of the work is "Health, Strength, and Power," 
the book being written by Dr. Dudley Allen Sar- 
gent, director of the Hemenway Gymnasium of 
Harvard LIniversity. Dr. Sargent is a graduate of 
Bowdoin College in the CI ass of 1875, and it is he 
for whom our Sargent Gymnasium is named, the 
apparatus for its equipment having been given by 
him. During his college course here Dr. Sargent 
was a renowned athlete, and he has since made the 
study of Physical Culture his life work. His 
numerous articles on physical training are well 
known, as are likewise his many inventions in the 
Modern System of Gymnasium Apparatus. The 
object of the work is to make physical training more 
popular by having arranged a series of exercises, 
which contains 280 pages, and has over 50 half-tone 
illustrations from original photographs furnished by 
the author. The work is not intended for athletes 
or students who devote much time to physical train- 
ing, but is for those in whose lives athletics play 
but a small part. The exercises prescribed are of 
the simplest nature, but ones which if faithfully per- 
formed will result in the greatest benefit. It is, 
therefore, a book which should appeal to a large 
class of students, and one which every man ought 
to have being, as it is, an authoritative work, 
undoubtedly the best of the day. 



A Princeton Senior has been asked by the 
Republican State Central Committee to stump the 
State of New Jersey in the interests of the Republi- 
can party. 



INTERCOLLEGIATE NOTES. 

Maine and Colby are making endeavors to stim- 
ulate debating. 

A chapter of Phi Beta Kappa has been instituted 
at Wellesley College. 

The University of Michigan is to have a regu- 
lar theatre on its campus, with a seating capacity of 
900. 

4,500 new seats have been added to the Yale foot- 
ball stands this summer, making their total capacity 
31,000. 

Amherst is now issuing tickets to its faculty at a 
cost of $7, admitting the holder to all the athletic 
contests of the year.

Calais High School, resigning that position in 1882. 

During the year of 1884-5 he was instructor in 
Bowdoin, at the same time reading law. He was 
admitted to the Cumberland bar in 18S6. 

He was representative from Brunswick in the 
last legislature and served on the committee of the 
judiciary. He is a forceful debater and took part

By the death of Charles W. Larrabee, Esq., of 
the Class of 1844, the Kappa Chapter of Psi Upsilon 
has lost a member both loyal and honored. 

For 60 years he had held the interests of the 
college and the fraternity at heart, and it is with 
the deepest grief that we mourn our loss. As an 
alumnus he was devoted, as a barrister he showed 
a broad and powerful mind, and as a man he was 
beloved by all. 

The Kappa Chapter deeply mourns his death 
and extends its heartfelt sympathy to his bereaved 
family and friends.

NO. 14. 



AN EXTRACT FROM REV. MR. JUMP'S AD- 
DRESS, "THE REASONABLENESS OF 

FAITH, SAMUEL HARRIS, '33." 
During the years of 1896 to 1899 the speaker was 
in residence at Yale Divinity School, and it used to 
be his privilege to meet a grave, meditative man, 
moving through the Divinity Halls like a saint sent 
down to rebuke the flippant theologues. Dr. Sam- 
uel Harris had been retired for some years, but he 
was holding each day in his study on the second 
floor, faithful office hours with a book soon to be 
published. His specialty was the human mind, its 
laws and discoveries, particularly as these had to do 
with the realm of theology. 

I shall never forget the delightful half-hour talk 
he gave us one afternoon during the middle year. 
Eighty-four years old, stone deaf, for several years 
on the retired list, he nevertheless inspired us by his 
address as though he were in the prime of life. He 
reminded us of the changes that had taken place in 
theological thinking since his boyhood. And then he 
reminded us of the glory of our calling. "We minis- 
ters are teaching men their own greatness. Our 
message is a message of their dignity from God. 
That song. 'Oh, to be nothing, nothing; a broken and 
empty vessel,' etc., must be cut out of our hymn 
books. We are not called to be 'nothing' for the 
glory of God. but to be something, and we know He 
meant us to be just as big somethings as in us lay." 
That hour of friendly converse with Dr. Harris 
afforded no little inspiration, and we rejoiced thus to 
have heard from perhaps the greatest of theologians 
then alive such broad and tolerant and hopeful utter- 
ance'. 

The career of Dr. Harris was uneventful for the 
most part, but like many a quiet river it poured 
blessings on numberless adjacent lives. Dr. Harris 
was a Maine boy, from East Machias. After gradu- 
ation from Bowdoin he attended Andover Seminary, 
taught, held pastorates at Conway and Pittsfield, 
Mass., and from '55 to '67 held the chair of sys- 
tematic theology at Bangor. From '67 to '71 he was 
President of Bowdoin College, the only one of our 
seven famous graduates to hold this honor, and went 
thence to the chair of theology at Yale Divinity 
School, which he held until retirement in '99. His 
best known publications are more daringly and pon- 
derously exhaustive than writers venture to be in 
these latter days. "The Self-Revelation of God," 
"The Philosophical Basis of Theism," and "God, the 
Creator and Lord of All," are the three most prom- 
inent. The earlier books, at least, were dedicated to 
the students in Bangor, Bowdoin, and Yale, who had 
listened to his lectures on theology. How many 
Bowdoin men are electing theology this year? Dr. 
Harris is, to those who studied under him, a 
prophet that ever comes back to mind, and from the 
recollection of his magnanimous soul flow rich cur- 
rents of helpfulness. 



Samuel Harris seems a fine symbol of the faith 
that seeks to be reasonable. His career spanned 
three tumultuous conflicts, as he pointed out to us 
that memorable morning; that between Christianity 
and positiveness ; that between Christianity and 
agnosticism, and that between Christianity and mate- 
rialism. Against these foes his defending sword had 
been swung among the mightiest, and nevertheless 
the martial duty of the apologist had not made him 
narrow as is so often the case. "Let faith come into 
open court" he seemed to say. "She has nothing to 
fear. Light will not hurt her, evidence is her friend 
rather than her antagonist. The God who is Infinite 
Reason has not left his Gospel without defences in 
the reason." Like Daniel he opened his windows 
toward Jerusalem, but unlike that same prophet, he 
also opened them in every other direction, too. He 
knew and loved literature having learned much of it 
from Longfellow while in Bowdoin, for Longfellow 
was then teaching languages and literature. He pur- 
sued science. He traced and interpreted history. In 
consequence his faith was not only related to all 
other departments of human thought, but from them 
it drew by way of analogy and illustration some of 
its strongest defences. 

Faith is always hungry for sanction, the soul 
before it trusts desires to know what assurance 
exists that its trust will not be in vain. This assur- 
ance has been sought in different directions. Some- 
times the soul looks forward toward a magically 
given revelation, a Bible whose holiness is not so 
much that of content as that of origin. This the 
Mohammedan does ; his Koran was written on a 
scroll, which an angel held before the prophet's 
sight in a vision. Some Christians are inclined to 
Mohammedanism. Secondly, the soul turns to a 
divinely protected institution for the authority of its 
faith, and in the church as developed by Roman 
Catholicism is to be found the wisdom that per- 
mits or forbids, approves or condemns. Thirdly, 
the soul finds in the traditions of the fathers 
surety for its creed. The Confucianist has 
always the backward eye, nor is Christianity 
always free from Confucianism any more than from 
Mohammedism. Lastly and when it has attained to 
its true estate, the soul considers its own inner 
sense of reason, and accepts as guarantee of gen- 
uineness only the verdict of the instructed inner 
voice, when comes the faith that is above all reason- 
able. Here in the last analysis lies the basis of 
Christianity. It is because the teachings of Jesus 
are so inherently reasonable that we accept them in 
preference to the teachings of others who claim just 
as much. It is because the life of love is so in accord 
with reason that we call it the ideal life. And when 
the discussion turns upon the interpretation of the 
Universe, we declare our faith in God who is Son 
and Father of all, because without such a God behind 
and around things it is impossible to make the uni- 
verse stand to reason. With' this reasonableness 



t56 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



can co-exist, of course, a measure of mystery. 
"The mystery of a' thing." declared Dr. Harris him- 
self, "is the finger-print of the Infinite hand that 
made it." But even this mystery is a mystery that 
lies along the lines of reason, not athwart them. It 
is a mystery that some day is to dawn into knowl- 
edge. It is a mystery that beckons us on with 
expectant faces. 

Strive for a faith, therefore, that is reasonable. 
Thus you will attain in God's good time to a faith 
that is Christ-like ; and when you have that kind of 
a faith, you are at home in the Father's bosom. 
"Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy 
mind." 



CHRISTIAN. ASSOCIATION ITEMS. 

The Thursday evening prayer-meeting was con- 
ducted by P. R. Chapman, '06. The subject. "Loy- 
alty to Principle," was well set forth by the leader. 
His comparison of loyalty to a college and loyalty to 
Christian principles was forceful and decidedly help- 
ful to all the men present. Certainly the great need 
of the world and of Bowdoin College is for men 
who are loyal to high and noble principles. 

NO SUNDAY SERVICE. 
As was announced by President Hyde from 
chapel, the Sunday services of the Association will 
not be held every week. When they are to be held 
they will be so thoroughly advertised that all Bow- 
doin men may know of them and be ready to attend. 
While we are not to hold them as frequently as 
hitherto, we hope to lay more stress on those we do 
have. The Association expects to get many speakers 
from other colleges, who will represent not only 
their Association but their college. When you hear 
that a talk is to be given on Sunday afternoon in 
Bannister Hall be assured that it will be a practical 
college talk of interest and practical worth to every 
student of Bowdoin College. 

Some reasons why a Christian student should 
join the Young Men's Christian Association of his 
college and actively promote its work : 

"The Association will help him to guard and 
develop his own spiritual life." 

"The Association will afford him the best possi- 
ble training in methods of Christian work." 

"The Association will give him the best oppor- 
tunity to be influential in the best sense of the word, 
among his fellow-students." 

There are moral evils and religious prejudices, 
indifference and opposition in the college which can 
never be overcome until all Christian students stand 
together with a united purpose. 

If the Association is wrong, the only practical 
way to reform it is from within. No man should 
stay out of the Association because it happens to 
be in the hands of a certain set of men. 

By joining he becomes a member of the only 
world-wide students' movement. 

In America and Canada it is represented in 650 
institutions and has a membership of 40,000 men. 
The World's Student Christian Federation has a 
membership of 65,000 students and embraces fifteen 
hundred institutions. 



REASONS FOR JOINING BOWDOIN ASSOCIATION. 

In the first place the Association needs the help 
of every man. church member or no, who believes 
that the ideals of truth and right are superior to 
those of their loyal opposites. 

In the second place it needs the support of all 
such men because without their support it is 
impossible to have an association which will have 
the influence such an association should have in 
Bowdoin. Do we have men on our membership 
roll who shouldn't be there? In answer to this 
it might be said that it is not the place of a Christ- 
ian Association to deny, to any man who wishes 
to become one of its members, that privilege. 

The Executive Committee of the Association 
cannot know the desires of any man, therefore it 
would be not only the height of propriety, but also 
a very great accommodation if men who feel that 
they should be members would hand their names to 
any man in the association. Either to Greene, '05, 
P. Chapman, '06, Allen, '07 Boody, '06, Ryan, '05, 
Webber, '06, Merrill, Packard, '08, or to any other 
man whom you may wish to hand your name. This 
is an earnest, honest, straightforward proposition to 
every Bowdoin man. 



DEBATING NOTES. 

The principal disputants for the first Intersection 
Debate, to be held November 29, have been 
appointed as follows : For Section A, Childs and 
Perry ; for Section B, Peterson and Pierce. The 
question will be announced, together with the 
names of the judges, in the next issue of the 
Orient. 

The two debates on the issues of the campaign 
were enthusiastic. Twenty-five men took part. 
The two sides clashed. The evidence was 
abundant and concrete, humor was well employed, 
and in general the work was thoroughly encourag- 
ing. So far, instead of taking ' their permitted 
"cuts," men are attending both sections. 

What we must work for now is greater earnest- 
ness, more emphasis, more vivacity. Also we must 
strive to adapt our speeches to the fixed time in 
order to produce a unified total effect. In regard 
to evidence, concreteness, and analysis of the ques- 
tion there has already been a notable gain. 

We learn with pleasure that the University of 
Maine has a new course in debating. Up to the 
present time four men have elected the course. 



FOOT=BALL. 



Brown 22, Bowdoin 0. 

Bowdoin lost the game with Brown, on Wednes- 
day of last week, by the score of 22 to 0. While it 
had been anticipated by those who had kept in close 
touch with the two teams, that Bowdoin would lose, 
it was not thought by many that the score would be 
as large as it was ; in that respect th,e game was a 
disappointment. 

The conditions under which the game was played 
were not of the best, and both teams played in a

rather indifferent manner, fumbling and other sec- 
ond-class work being of frequent occurrence. 

Twice during the game Bowdoin had a good 
chance to score, but was unable to make the dis- 
tance necessary to do so. Brown scored one of her 
four touchdowns in the first half and three in the 
last half. The playing of the Brown team improved 
considerably during the latter part of the game.

LIBRARY BOOKS RECENTLY ADDED. 

Wagner, Charles. By the Fireside. 

The arrival of Mr. Wagner in this country 
recently, on a lecture tour, has served to renew an 
interest in his writings. American readers are 
already familiar with his earlier books "Youth" and 
"Courage" which have appeared in translation. The 
titles of two of his other books, "The Simple Life" 
and "The Better Way," suggest his gospel of sim- 
plicity and courage. (170.1: Wn) 

Eliot, C. W. More Money for the Public Schools. 

This book contains two addresses originally 
delivered to State Teachers' Association. The main 
argument urges that the expenditure per pupil in the 
common schools of the United States is insufficient. 
In supporting this specific argument many public 
school problems are reviewed in their larger aspects. 
These addresses constitute a severe criticism of pop- 
ular education, the object, however, being not merely 
to criticise but to show that the remedy for many 
existant evils lies in developing still further the pub- 
lic schools. (379:E42) 

Washington, B. T. Working with the Hands. 

This book serves the double purpose of carrying 
forward Mr. Washington's biography from the point 
where he left it in "Up from Slavery," as well as to 
outline the course of industrial training at Tuske- 



gee. Mention is ma.de of the value of technical and 
industrial training in negro education but for the most 
part the book is concerned with the methods of train- 
ing and their development under Mr. Washington's 
own supervision. This development along practical 
and industrial lines is given as evidence that the 
negro has profited from the educational advantages 
already afforded him. (607 : W 27) 

Sanborn, F. B. New Hampshire. 

The useful series of state histories commonly 
known as the "American Commonwealths" has lately 
been extended by this volume on New Hampshire. 
This is a concise history giving the succession of 
events within the state and connecting them with 
contemporary events of national importance. It 
corrects the bias of earlier accounts and supplements 
them by giving facts available only to the later his- 
torian. (974.2 : S 19) 

Nield, Jonathan. Guide to the Best Historical 
Novels and Tales. 

Analyzes a large number of the best historical 
novels. The arrangement of the material is chron-

period in one division. These divisions are by cen-

"Fifty representative historical novels" which

book is a carefully prepared and systematic guide to 
this large and important class of fiction. (016.823 :-

On to Orono. 



To-morrow afternoon we 
play Maine at Orono in 
what promises to be one of the most interest- 
ing games of the state. This is the critical 
game of the year. The college has implicit 
confidence in the team, remembering as we 
do the overwhelming defeat administered to 
Colby. Can we lower our standard to a team 
which has been defeated by Colby? Such a 
defeat would be humiliating and would mean 
discouragement and the irretrievable loss 
of the championship. Therefore we must 
beat Maine. As has often been said 
before, incessant cheering all through the 
game can do much in rousing a foot-ball team 
to victory and at the same time show that the 
entire college is back of the team. With the 
idea, then, that Bowdoin must win to-mor- 



row's game and that everything possible must 
be done for that purpose, we urge every Bow- 
doin man who is able to do so, to go to Orono 
to-morrow and cheer his team on to victory. 



Chess Club. 



There has been some talk 
among a number ■ f the 
students of forming a chess club. At r -esent 
nothing of the kind exists here, and it seems 
as if such a venture ought to be a success. 
Nearly all the colleges have chess teams, and 
intercollegiate tournaments are regular 
occurrences. It is doubtful if there are many 
students who play the game, at the present 
time, but chess is a pastime which is very fas- 
cinating, and it is safe to say that if a club 
were formed it would not be long before there 
would be plenty of applicants for membership. 
We would suggest that those in favor of the 
movement meet and organize a club. 



Electing the 
Quill Board. 



One of the things that has 
been called to the atten- 
tion of the Orient by 
some of the men in college is the manner of 
choosing the Quill Board. While the 
Orient does not wish to enter into a discus- 
sion of the business affairs of the college 
monthly, it will not be out of place perhaps to 
speak of the things mentioned by those who 
favor a change. It is suggested that the 
board be chosen from the entire student body, 
instead of from the Junior Class, as is now 
done. In this connection, it is felt that the 
paper would reap much better resr'ts than at 
present. The field of competition would be 
greatly broadened, and the men elected, as a 
result of this increased competition, would 
necessarily be of the very best quality in the 
entire college, instead of picked men from a 
single class. Of course, men may, and do to a 
certain extent, contribute from other classes, 
at present, but there is no special incentive 
for their doing so, except in Sophomore year, 
and as a result there is not the greatest possi- 



BOWDOIN ORIENT.

ble literary activity among the students. 
Another change that is mentioned in this con- 
nection, is to keep men on the board from 
the time of his election to the completion of 
his course. In that case when a man has 
proved himself worthy of the board the paper 
has the benefit of his ability for a greater 
leng of time. At present, it is only a year. 
By the : me a man gets well into the work his 
term has expired and then some one else takes 
his place — which is of course a disadvantage. 
These suggestions are not voiced by the 
Orient as indicating that the college maga- 
zine is not a strong one and in most compe- 
tent hands. It is. We are all proud of it and 
wish to see it prosper — and that is doubtless 
the reason that the suggestions are made. On 
the other hand, it may be said that the period- 
ical — as everything else in college — needs the 
united effort of the whole college. And 
those who favor the change in the choosing of 
the board feel that if a certain number of men 
are chosen each year — without discrimination 
as to class, — greater interest and better results 
will be secured. 



Hat Bands. 



We wish to bring to the 
attention of the student 
body a matter which, while widely developed 
in many other colleges, has never been 
seriously considered here at Bowdoin — that 
of hat bands. At a number of institutions, 
notably among the larger universities, every 
college organization has its distinctive college 
hat band.. Not only do the various athletic 
teams have their methods, but the debating 
teams, musical organizations, dramatic clubs, 
literary clubs and undergraduate periodicals 
all have their individual way of displaying the 
college colors. Thus while all show the com- 
mon hues, each organization by a special man- 
agement of these colors, has a band peculiar to 
itself and able to be recognized immediately 
as such. (As for instance: One band will be 
all of one color ; another striped ; another with 



bars ; others with two broad stripes and a nar- 
row one, two narrow stripes and a broad one ; 
and so on.) The convenience and neatness of 
such an idea when generally recognized and 
understood will appeal to all. If this sugges- 
tion should meet with the approval of the stu- 
dent body, we would recommend that at the 
next general college mass-meeting, the matter 
be brought up and referred to an undergrad- 
uate committee for further consideration and 
proper development. 



A Letter to Your 
School Paper. 



Among the many ways in 
which a student can help 
his college, there is one 
we would suggest. This is through the 
columns of the preparatory school paper. 
Nearly every "prep" school of any importance 
maintains a periodical and the editors would 
doubtless be only too glad to print a letter or 
a communication from one of its alumni. 
An occasional article or letter containing a 
few glimpses of college life or reviewing the 
development of the college is sure to awaken 
interest in the minds of men who are prepar- 
ing for college and often would prove of 
more importance in bringing a man to Bow- 
doin than anything else we could do. The 
matter lies wholly in the hands of those who 
are graduates of a school maintaining a 
paper and are willing to spare a few moments 
in which to write. It is an opportunity for 
immense gfood. 



Mass=Meeting. 



The mass-meetings are an 
important phase of the 
student life at Bowdoin and should not be neg- 
lected. Since we have no college commons 
where we might meet at meals daily and since 
we are all scattered around in the different 
Chapter Houses and "Ends," these meetings 
are the best chance we have to get together as 
a college. Let every man, therefore, watch 
the bulletin board at the chapel every day and 



160 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



consider it his duty to attend every meeting 
for any purpose whatever which he may see 
announced there. 



Contests for 
Board. 



We wish to call the atten- 
tion of the Freshmen to 
the contest for positions on 
the staff of the Orient which is now in 
progress. The contest thus far has been very 
unsatisfactory. Only two men are trying for 
the board at the present time. We want to 
see at least 50 per cent, of the Freshman 
Class trying for the board this year. In order 
to represent to our alumni and the outside 
world the exact state of affairs at Bowdoin we 
must have the help of hustling and energetic 
men. According to the constitution recently 
adopted. each editor receives an equal share in 
the year's profits. This alone, not to men- 
tion whatever honor is attached to the posi- 
tion and the valuable experience, ought to be 
incentive enough to cause the entire class to 
try. There remain fifteen issues before the 
election takes place and good faithful work 
for those issues will enable one to meet the 
requirements. All those desiring to compete 
will notify the Editor-in-Chief at once. 



_ . „ , First there, first served, 

Grand Stand Seats. , , . 

seemed to be the motto of 

the greater part of the students at the Bow- 
doin-Colby game. When the time came for the 
game, and the student body marched to the 
field, all made a rush for seats in the grand- 
stand irrespective of their tickets. In this 
way a large number lost their seats which they 
had purchased and were compelled to sit 
wherever they could find room. Such a thing 
would not be tolerated in a theatre nor should 
it be in the grand stand. When a man pur- 
chases a seat he ought to have that seat. It is 
sincerely hoped that the fellows will take the 
seats which their ticket entitles them to at 
the Bowdoin-Bates game. 



TRIBUTE TO PRESIDENT HYDE'S 
LATEST WORK. 

In a recent issue of the Colby Echo Mr. 
A. W. Jackson, Colby, '96, pays a glowing 
tribute to President Hyde's latest work, 
"From Epicurus to Christ." The following 
was clipped from the Echo: "This is a book 
which I am sure I should have profited by 
when I was in college, and it seems to me 
peculiarly adapted to college men. It is a 
time when ethical doctrines are in the ascend- 
ant in studious interest ; and here, .in studies 
of Epicurus, the Stoics, Plato and Aristotle, 
they are presented with a clearness and felic- 
ity that should give the volume distinguished 
place among writings of this kind. Its culmi- 
nating page, as the title suggests, brings these 
earlier teachers into comparison with Christ. 
Carefully pondered, the volume should eke out 
the scant provision for ethical studies in your 
curriculum, and, read in earlier years, should 
be * admirable preparation for President 
White's course in Moral Philosophy. For its 
chaste and cogent English, its breadth of view, 
thoroughness, practical wisdom and nobleness 
of tone the volume can hardly be too heartily 
commended. I am sure I shall do young men 
of Colby a substantial service if I win them to 
its pages." 



PRESIDENT HYDE AT BANGOR. 

President Hyde delivered an address before the 
Maine Association of Colleges and Preparatory 
Schools at Bangor last Friday. His subject was: 
"What is best to be done in regard to pupils who are 
not entitled to a certificate but who present them- 
selves for examination at college?" He said in part 
that the transition from a lower private standard 
of admission to college or university, to a higher 
common standard tends to exclude some students 
who previously had no difficulty in gaining admis- 
sion. He fully believed that these excluded students 
should be given an examination and that in difficulty 
of questions asked, and in the severity with which 
the answers should be marked, the examination 
should be a full and fair equivalent of the standard 
the New England Certificate Board represents. He 
was averse to encouraging students who fail to 
receive certificates to take the examinations, by 
holding out the assurance that the standard of the 
examination is lower than that of the certificate. 
Such a course would be treachery to the Certificate 
Board, to the pupil and the high school principal. 
Partial certificates, however, in the sense of certifi- 
cates which leave a relatively small portion of one's 
preparation incomplete, the conscientious principal 
will give, and the self-respecting college will wel- 
come.

College Botes. 



Austin Cary, Class of '87, was on the campus last 
week. 

P. Chapman, '06, spent a few days in New York 
last week. 

Several of the students saw Nance O'Neill at the 
Empire last week. 

Snow, '07, is principal of the High School at 
South Thomaston. 

Hallowe'en night at the college was observed in 
the usual manner. 

Thomas F. Moses, Class of 1857, was on the cam- 
pus a few days ago. 

Harvey Given will soon open a cafe in the store 
formerly occupied by "Tweekie." 

J. B. Drummond has been elected captain of the 
Sophomore foot-ball team. 

Charles Kinsman, who received an injury in the 
Brown game last week, is at his home in Augusta. 

The news of Colby 12, Maine II, added even more 
zest to the spirit of last Saturday's wild excitement ! ! 

It is rumored that "Gym" work will commence 
immediately after Thanksgiving. This is already a 
major course with many of us. 

"Eddie" Dunlap, who has been coaching the sec- 
ond team against the 'varsity, this fall, is at present 
coaching the Kent's Hill foot-ball team. 

A 75-foot whale has been stranded on Popham 
Beach. Excursions are being run from Bath for 
the purpose of seeing this mighty animal of the 
deep. 

Ho ! Freshmen ! turn out and try for the Mando- 
lin or Glee Club. Your class must be represented. 
At present there are no candidates out from the 
Freshman Class. 

Capt. Kidd's treasure draws as many people now 
as in former times. At present Bath has the craze 
and people are digging up a beautiful grove in 
search of the long-lost bricks of gold. 

Garcelon has been elected captain, of the Fresh- 
man foot-ball team. Back him up, Fresh, and 
come out to practice. You can turn out a good 
team. The colors chosen by 1908 are brown and 
white. 

The Art Building has recently added to its col- 
lections a rare little medal. It is a souvenir of 
Admiral Dewey's victory at Manila in the form of a 
bronze medal. On one side is Commodore Dewey's 
picture and on the other his ship. 

An interesting thing in connection with the 
Maine-Colby game of last Saturday is that last year 
Colby lost the game to Maine by missing a goal, 
whereas the same thing happened again, this year — 
only it was the other way. 

A very pleasing article has appeared in the Bos- 
ton Advertiser, as well as other papers, touching 
upon Professor Chapman's connection with Bow- 
doin and its students. The tribute paid to Profes- 
sor Chapman is a very graceful as well as a de- 
served one. 



Johnson, '06, furnished the musical number at 
the chapel exercises, Sunday afternoon. 

Interest in tennis seems to be holding out till the 
last. Why would it not be an admirable scheme to 
have a series of class, and interclass, tournaments 
next spring as well as the regular college match? 
This would stimulate interest and bring out mate- 
rial which might otherwise never appear. 

The U. of M. A. A. has decided that the Bow- 
doin-Maine game shall be played on Alumni Field 
at Orono. It also voted to erect bleachers on the 
north side of the athletic field with a seating capac- 
ity of between two and three hundred which will be 
completed in time for the Bowdoin-Maine game. 

Among the pictures of teachers prominent at the 
Bangor convention, last week, and of whom half- 
tone pictures appeared in the Bangor Daily News, 
were those of C. H. Preston, '02, and Farnsworth 
Marshall, '03. The former is now at the head of 
the Brewer High School, and the latter the principal 
of the Oldtown High School. 

— Through the kindness and thoughtfulness of the 
Bennett-Moulton Company, which played at the 
Town Hall, last week, the members of the college 
foot-ball squad were invited to witness the play, 
Friday evening, and nearly every man accepted 
the invitation. The act was a most courteous and 
generous one on the part of the Bennett-Moulton 
Company. 

Manager Putnam of the base-ball team is working 
hard to obtain the necessary means for another min- 
strel show this year. We all sincerely hope that it 
will be as much of a success as last year's show was, 
and there is but little doubt but what it will, provid- 
ing the fellows take hold of it, and work as they 
did before. We have plenty of excellent material in 
college for such an entertainment, and it ought to 
be a fine one. 

Coach Lathrop has secured a new coon dog and 
coon hunting is proving to be a favorite pastime for 
students. Billy Rowe likes it so much that one 
night he walked out to Oak Hill where he thought 
Coach Lathrop was and spent the greater part of 
the night trying to locate a dog which was barking 
two or three miles away. When he came home he 
found that the coach had returned and was in bed at 

10.30 P.M. 

A very interesting book, Baby Elton, Quarter- 
Back, by Leslie W. Quirk, has just been written. 
The young hero is a very appealing type of the col- 
lege athlete ; and though occasionally he meets 
defeat, he usually wins out, at the critical moment. 
Baby Elton plays foot-ball well, base-ball better, and 
breaks the record for the ten-mile run. It is 
entirely the athletic side of life that the book 
pictures. 

ON DIT 

That it was a harder proposition to sleep well in 
the ends Saturday night than it is to get an A to 
Professor Ham. 

That Professor Roberts is no sinecure. 

That there's lots of E's in the chemistry quizzes 
these days.

iors by those who don't know. 

That the zephyrs did whistle promiscuously 
around the trousers of the participants in the track 
meet, last Saturday. 

Thai Captain Denning took first in the shot and

That everybody is going to Orono, to-morrow. 

That a light is needed over the door of the 
library, 

That there is to be a large number of candidates 
for Reader in the Glee Club. 

That certain professors should tell their classes 
when they intend to give quizes. 



PROFESSOR HUTCHINS' TRANSLATION. 

In the current issue of Popular Astronomy 
appears an article by Professor C. C. Hutchins, of 
the physics department of the college, in which he 
makes a translation from the original Italian of Gal- 
ileo of this famous astronomer's principal work, 
which was published in 1630. This article Professor 
1 1 11K bins has written in a simple and straightfor- 
ward way which all can understand and enjoy. We 
reci nend il strongly to the student body as inter- 
esting and worthy of reading. In brief we quote as 
follows, which will appeal to every college man: 
Galileo says : 

"I have often observed with wonder while watch- 
ing the players at top shooting, that their tops depart- 
ing from the hand go through the air at a certain 
velocity, which is much increased when the top reaches 
the ground and if spinning about they strike some 
obstacle which causes them to bound aloft, they go 
through the air slowly enough, bill retailing to 
earth, they return to their former high velocity. 
Also, thai if in throwing a ball, it is grasped with 
the hand above and the ball beneath, by which a con- 
trary motion is Imparted, striking, there it stops or 
advances but little." Behold how old are many of 
our newest inventions! The reader will observe in 
the latter case he has described exactly the method 
of holding and throwing a ball by our ball pitchers; 
and of cutting a tennis ball in the former. 



BOWDOIN-BATES KOOT-BALL SERIES. 

The fall of 18X9 mark's the first time Bowdoin 
and Hates ever met on the gridiron. The next 
game was played in the fall of '93 and, with the 
exception of 7900, a game has been played every 
year since. Of the 11 games, Bowdoin has won 7. 
Bowdoin has scored 219 points and Bates 60. Fol- 
lowing is the detailed list of the games: 

'89. — Bowdoin 62, Bates o. 

'93. — Bowdoin 54, Bates 0. 

'94. — Bowdoin 26, Bates o. 

'95. — Bowdoin 22, Bates 6. 

'96. — Bowdoin 22, Bates o. 

'97. — Bowdoin 6, Bates 10. 

'98.- Bowdoin o, Bates 6. 

'99. — Bowdoin 10, Bates 6. 

'01. — Bowdoin o, Bates 11. 

'02. — Bowdoin o, Bates 16. 

'03. — Bowdoin 11, Bates 5. 

'04. — Bowdoin — ?, Bates — ? 



READY FOR THE BATTLE. 

Bowdoin has at last completed the work on the 
formations and plays that she will use against Maine, 
and the line and backs have been coached on the 
defensive lines to meet a Maine attack. Last year 
Maine defeated Bowdoin 16-0. In the first half 
Bowdoin, although clearly outweighed by Maine, 
outplayed her opponents at every stage of the game. 
The nearest Maine got to our goals was on the 
twenty-yard line, where she was held for downs. In 
the second half Bowdoin, weakened by the loss of 
Philoon and Speakc, was clearly outplayed. Maine 
opened up big holes between centre and right guard 
and between right guard and tackle. Whether she 
will be able to do this to-morrow is a matter of con- 
jecture. The weakest point in Maine's line, outside 
of the ends which are very weak, is the right side. 
Through this side Colby made very large holes. On 
the other hand Bowdoin's left line, the line that will 
be pitted against Maine's right, is very strong. Maine 
has not the strong eleven this year that she had in 
1903, but still is very formidable and will appear on 
the gridiron to-morrow with many of the characteris- 
tics of the 1903 eleven. 

The men who will enter the game for Bowdoin 
are in good physical condition with the exception 
of possibly one or two. W. Drummond who has 
been affected with boils will, contrary to expecta- 
tion, probably play right end. Kinsman is suffer- 
ing from a muscle bruise incurred in the Brown game 
and will not be in the game. The loss of Hatch at 
right guard is seriously felt but the team is fortu- 
nate in having worthy substitutes in Mitchell, 
Hawkesworth and Skolfield. It is not yet known 
which of these men will play this position. The two 
teams seem evenly matched ; what Bowdoin has in 
alertness and speed, Maine makes up in weight. 
Whether the day is stormy or pleasant will have 
considerable to do with the score. The men of both 
teams realize that they will meet worthy opponents 
when the whistle blows to-morrow. The students 
of both colleges believe that their team will win. 
The coaches will simply say that it will be a hard 
game. Should Bowdoin win she will have an excel- 
lenl chance for the championship. 

The line-up: 
Bowdion, Maine. 

J. Drummond, l.c r.c., Downing, Quint. 

Finn, l.t r.t., Talbot. 

Sanborn, l.g r.g., Bennett.

MASS-MEETING. 

A mass-meeting was held in Memorial Hall, Mon-

the University of Maine at Orono. The speakers 
were Track Coach Lathrop, Capt. Clarke of the base-

ball team, Capt. Denning of the track team, 
and Manager White of the foot-hall team. 
The meeting was presided over by Captain 
Philoon. All the speakers dwelt particularly on the 
necessity of hard practice during the days preceding 
the game, and lamented the apparent lack of inter 
est in the welfare of the team, as evidenced by the 
small number of men out. They also emphasized 
the necessity of all students going to Orono Satur- 
day. The remarks of the different speakers were 
enthusiastically received. Manager White stated 
the condition on which a special train could be 
secured and the rales for the same. At the close he 
read off the names of the men in college and asked 
every man who could go to make it known. It is 
thought that over 150 will accompany the team.

THE FALL TRACK MEET. 

The meet on Whittier Athletic Field last Satur- 
day afternoon, was a great success from the athletic 
point of view, but as for class spirit it was sadly 
lacking. There was but a small number of si 11 
dents present, and very little interest was mani- 
fested. It seems strange that we cannot have bet- 
ter attendance at an event of this kind, for it is cer- 
tainly one which deserves our support if any dues. 
It is true that it was rather cold, but this ought nut 
to have made any difference, except to the con- 
testants. As for the meet itself, the results proved 
beyond a doubt, the advantage of fall training. Not 
only were the contests good, but they showed that we 
have excellent material in the two lower classes pre- 
viously unknown, which will be heard from in the 
spring. The weather conditions were very unfavor- 
able as a strong wind blew across the field and the 
track was very heavy from the recent rain, making 
fast work an impossibility. Only one college record 
was broken and this was by Denning in the hammer 
throw. The former record, held by himself, of 138 
ft. 10 in. was increased to 139 ft. I in. The results 
of the different events were as follows: 

Running high jump — II. S. Tobey, '06 (scratch), 
1st, s ft- 1 in.; A. W. Merrill (scratch), 1st, '08, 2d. 
5 ft.; B. W. Morse, '08, 3d, (2 in.), 4 ft. 10 in. 

120-yard hurdle — H. S. Tobey, '06 (scratch), 1st. 
Time, 18 3-5 seconds. 

100-yard dash — First heat won by K. Packard, '08 



AMERICA'S GREATEST FOOT-BALL PLAY- 
ERS. 

To select an All-America fool -ball team is a dif- 
lienli task, but to select an All-American team of the 
All-American teams for the past fourteen years is 
decidedly a more difficult task. Thishas been done by 
Walter Camp, Yale's athletic adviser, an article on 
which appears in the last issue of The Independent. 
Tin' team as selected is as follows: 

hauls — llinl.ev, Yale, All-America, '01, '92, '93 and 

'94-

INTERCOLLEGIATE NEWS. 

The question for the annual Intercollegiate Yale- 
Princeton debate to be held December 6, 1904, is as 
follows : Resolved, That it should be the policy of 
the United States not to hold territory unless with 
the purpose that it shall ultimately enjoy statehood. 

R. L. Henry, Chicago's Rhodes scholar, writes 
that the men sent over to Oxford this year are 
weak and are not making a very favorable impres- 
sion upon the English students. He accounts for 
this weakness in that the competition was entered 
into by very few. All that is required to pass the 
examinations is a slight knowledge of Greek and 
Latin and elementary arithmetic and algebra. Most 
of the failures last year were due to too much 
knowledge. 

The Thompson memorial chapel, which is near- 
ing completion at Williams, includes a set of chimes, 
which ranks among the largest, finest and most 
expensive in New England. The cost of the chapel 
is expected to approach $500,000. 

A great pajama parade occurred at California 
recently. The pajamas used in this annual affair 
are reserved especially and are handed down from 
year to year. They are white or were once, and 
are decorated either with paints or with foot-ball 
pictures. 

Tw,o Columbia students were recently arrested 
on the charge of taking examinations as proxies for 
others. Although this is the first arrest of the 
kind, it is alleged that there is a regular syndicate 
of bright young men who will pass an examination 
in any subject for a consideration ranging from $20 
to $300. 

A plan is under consideration at Brown, whereby 
professors over 70 years of age or who have been 
connected with the university for twenty years, are 
to be retired. 

Rollins, '05, who holds the New England Inter- 
collegiate record in the shot-put, has been elected 
captain of the track team at Amherst. 

126 Freshmen out of a total of 260 were pledged 
to the 14 fraternities at Dartmouth last week. 

The Williams Student says : "The benefits of the 
Honor System are so obvious that throughout col- 
lege they are unhesitatingly recognized and affirmed, 
no man has anything but commendation for the lib- 
erty afforded him. The essential element in the 
proctor system must always be odious to a demo- 
cratic, honorable society." 

According to the census taken to ascertain the 
political sentiments of the students at Wesleyan, 
120 or 88.9 per cent, were Republicans ; 10 or 7.4 per 
cent, were Democrats ; 2 or 1.48 per cent., Prohibi- 
tionists ; and 1 or .74 per cent, was independent. 
Out of the 13S men, however, only 62 were of age, 
and of these 53 were Republicans, 7 Democrats, 
and 2 Prohibitionists. 

The preliminary figures of registration in the 
various departments at Yale show the total number 
of students* at present to be 2995. This is the largest 
number in the history of the college. 

The number of students registered this fall at 
Harvard is 4086, a decrease of 205 over last year's 
attendance. President Eliot thinks the cause is par- 
tially due to the fact that more men are realizing 
the need of completing their education in three 
instead of four years. 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



VOL. XXXIV. BRUNSWICK, MAINE, NOVEMBER n, 1904. 



NO. 15. 



BOWDOIN 22, MAINE 5. 



Last Saturday proved to be the day which all 
Bowdoin men have looked forward to for four long 
years. It was the first time during the course of 
any of the present undergraduates that our team 
has won from Maine, and it was the signal for 
great rejoicing. Between 150 and 200 of the stu- 
dents attended the game at Orono, and it is safe 
to say that a happier crowd of fellows never took a 
return trip home. The day was not a particularly 
fine one for foot-ball, because it was rather cold, 
and the field exceedingly muddy, but this made 
little difference to the team, and they ploughed 
through it all to a well-earned victory. The game 
was called at 2.30, and the details are as follows : 
Captain Philoon won the toss and chose the north 
goal. Learned kicked off to Speake, who ran the 
ball in to the 20-yard line. It was then that the fun 
began, with line plunges, end runs, and quarterback 
tricks. The backs drove the ball up the field with- 
out being held for downs. Once Maine withstood the 
rush for two downs, but on the third, with two 
yards to gain, McGraw took the ball around the 
end for a 14-yard run, placing it on Maine's 
16-yard line. With a beautiful line plunge Chap- 
man carried it to the 3-yard line, and from there 
Curtis took it over, almost before Maine realized 
what was happening. McGraw failed to kick the 
goal, however, owing to the mud. 

Chapman then kicked off to Thatcher, who ran 
the ball in to the 20-yard line. After a couple of 
tens Maine was forced to punt and McGraw 
received the ball on the 48-yard line. From there 
Speake worked it to the 45-yard line, where it was 
fumbled, but recovered on the 40 yard line. Then 
Chapman got in one of the runs for which he is 
famous. Breaking through Maine's right tackle 
and shaking off all opponents, he 'covered the 40 
yards to the goal line, making the second touch- 
down in sensational style. McGraw failed to kick 
a difficult goal. Chapman kicked to Weymouth, 
who carried the ball to the 20 yard line. Maine, 
however, could not gain and Thatcher punted to 
Chapman on the 35-yard line. With a couple of 
quarterback runs and a few more line plunges it 
went to the 10-yard line. Again Curtis took the 
ball through for a touchdown, and McGraw kicked 
the goal. Thatcher received the ball on the next 
kick-off and carried it to the 10-yard line. From 
there Maine pushed it to the 35-yard line where she 
was forced to punt. McGraw got the ball on 
Maine's 50-yard line, Bowdoin rushed it to the 
30-yard line and there Maine held. Just time 
enough remained for a try at goal, but this was 
missed and the half ended. 

The second half began with Chapman's kick to 
Thatcher on the 8-yard line. Collins gained 



15 yards, but Bowdoin held on the next three 
downs, and took the ball. After three or four 
plunges by the backs Curtis took it over for the 
fourth touchdown, McGraw kicked the goal, and 
this ended Bowdoin's scoring. On the kick-off Col- 
lins received the ball at the 5-yard line. Maine 
could not gain, so punted to Chapman. Maine's 
line held and Bowdoin returned the punt, the ball 
being caught on Maine's own 30-yard line. A few 
gains and Thatcher punted once more. McGraw 
received the ball in the centre of the field. Chap- 
man gained 20 yards on a fake punt. Bowdoin 
was penalized 15 yards for holding and then Maine 
held for downs. With six minutes to play Maine 
rushed the ball steadily up the field, aided now and 
then by a fifteen-yard penalty, until within one yard 
of the goal line. From there Crowe took the ball 
over for a touchdown. Learned, however, missed 
the goal and time was called. The last part of the 
game was played in semi-darkness, and it is doubt- 
ful if Maine would have scored had it not been 
for this. As for the individual stars, Chapman and 
McGraw were undoubtedly the most brilliant, but 
so well did everyone play that it is very difficult to 
say who did the best work.

THE LIBRARY. 



NEW BOOKS ADDED. 
Fiske, A. K. The Modern Bank. 

This book takes up in detail the operations and 
the various functions of banks as we know them' in 
the United States. The large banks of New York 
City are taken as the model which the other banks 
of the country, with a few modifications, closely 
follow. The account assumes no knowledge of 
banking, on the part of the reader, and it forms, 
for this reason, an excellent introduction to this 
subject. (332.1 :F 54) 

Littlefield, (J. E. Early Schools and School- 
Books of New England. 

Following some introductory pages on the early 
schools of Europe the author gives a somewhat 
extended account of education in Massachusetts. 
Of particular value- however, to the antiquary and 
reader of New England history, are the pages on 
the "Early School Books of New England." The 
most used of these early text-books are described in 
detail and there are produced many facsimiles of 
frontispieces and title-pages of books no longer 
generally accessible. (379.744: L 73) 

Henderson, B. W. The Life and Principate of 
the Emperor Nero. 

A comprehensive study of the personal life and 
public career of Nero. A very full account is given 
of the public men and events of the times and 
especially the share that Nero had in the history of 
the period. There are separate chapters on the 
court life, the fire of Rome, and Seneca and the 
Stoics, all of which are sketched with considerable 
fullness and complete the picture of Roman life in 
Nero's time. (937.06 : H 38) 

Whibley, Charles. William Makepeace Thack= 
eray. 

A life and criticism of the writings of Thack- 
eray, although the biographical matter is necessarily 
a minor feature. The materials for a life of Thack- 
eray are not generally available. Out of respect 
for Thackeray's wishes no authorized life has been 
prepared. This book is strong on the critical side 
and there is a careful consideration of Thackeray's 
stories. Air. Whibley is sufficiently detached from 
the time and surroundings of his subject to leave 
him independent in his criticism. He gives a keen 
and impartial analysis of Thackeray and his work. 
(823.82 : B 4) 

Merwin=Webster. Calumet "K." 

The chief interest of this story centres around a 
young constructor who is given the task of building 
a two-million bushel grain elevator within a speci- 



fied time. A big wheat deal depends upon the suc- 
cess of the undertaking. This is not a recent story 
but it has maintained for more than three years a 
good deal of the prominence which it gained upon 
its first publication. (813.49: M 56) 

NOTES. 

The library is changing the form of cards in 
the catalogue now in use to a larger size. 
A catalogue has already been started on the larger 
size cards and the attention of readers is called to 
this supplementary catalogue which stands on a 
table at the right of the regular catalogue and con- 
tains cards for books added since October 1, 1904. 



CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION ITEMS. 

The regular weekly meeting held in Banister 
Hall at seven-fifteen on Thursday evening, was 
led by Greene, '05. The subject for consideration 
was "The Power of a Temperate Life." 

SUNDAY SERVICE. 
Owing to the fact that so many men were out 
of town, the Sunday service was postponed. The 
Association expects to have as their guest on 
October 13th, Mr. Douglass Cook, Harvard, 1905. 
Mr. Cook is a man prominent in Association work 
at Cambridge, besides being an all-around college 
man. It is no more than the fair thing that the 
college men give Mr. Cook a cordial welcome, by 
turning out to hear him. 

SUNDAY EVENING SERVICE. 
The next speaker for the Sunday evening ser- 
vices which are being held in connection with the 
college church, will be the Rev. John C. Perkins of 
Portland. Mr. Perkins is a recent graduate of the 
college and although his subject has not been 
announced, we may rest assured he will have some- 
thing to say which will be of interest and profit to 
the undergraduates of his Alma Mater. 



Probably one of the most common excuses 
which men give when asked to join a Christian 
Association, is the lack of time. There can be 
little doubt but that such an excuse is not only ill- 
considered, but ill-founded. In the first place the 
college man is neglecting just that part of his col- 
lege education which he should most heartily seek 
to cultivate. An hour of his time every week is no 
more than he would devote to almost anything 
else. Furthermore, the men who are devoting not 
merely one, but many hours to the work of the 
association are those who are as busy as any men 
in the college. Mr. John R. Mott, one of the 
strongest of student secretaries of the country and 
one thoroughly conversant with the life of the col- 
lege student, says on this point : "If a Christian 
man thinks that he has not time to be a member of 
the association, it is one of the strongest reasons 
why he should be a member." A lack of time is 
veritably a very, very unsatisfactory excuse. 
Remember this : That if you can concur in the pur- 
poses of the association, in spite of everything you 
should be one of its members. It is your duty and 
privilege to assist it in its endeavors to raise the 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



167 



standard of college manhood, not by instilling mon- 
astic ideals into its members, but by encouraging 
them to enter into all college activities, and carry 
with them their ideals of right and truth. This is 
an eminently practical ideal and one which should 
appeal to all.

ter was represented by W. T. Henderson, '05, and 
C. C. Holman, '06. The convention was favored 
with delightful weather and the delegates were so

DELTA UPSILON CONVENTION. 

The seventieth annual convention of the Delta 
Upsilon fraternity was held at Chicago, 111., Octo- 
ber 26, 27 and 28, with the Chicago Delta Upsilon 
Club, the Northwestern and Chicago Chapters. 
Thirty-five chapters were represented. 

The convention opened on Wednesday with an 
executive session and in the evening an informal 
smoker was held at the University Club. Thursday 
the executive session was continued. In the after- 
noon the delegates were driven by tally-ho to the 
University of Chicago, where the literary exercises 
were held in Mandel Hall. After the exercises the 
Chicago chapter gave an informal reception at their 
chapter house. In the evening a reception and ball 
was tendered the delegates by Judge E. B. Sherman, 
Chief Justice of. the Supreme Court of Illinois, 



THREE BROTHERS IN CONGRESS. 

It may not be generally known by the under- 
graduate body that from 1861 to 1863 William Pitt 
Fessenden, Samuel C. Fessenden, and Thomas A. D. 
Fessenden were all members of the 37th Congress. 
William Pitt Fessenden was- in the Senate and his 
two brothers were in the House. They were all 
Bowdoin men. 

This is something for every Bowdoin man to be 
proud of. Things like this should not be forgotten, 
but should be kept alive in the memory of every 
loyal Bowdoin man. It should not be kept among 
ourselves but should be spread abroad. Whenever 
an opportunity arises for you to tell of the fame of 
your college to a prospective sub-Freshman or any- 
one else, never fail to mention anything of this 
kind.

Bates Game. 



To-morrow afternoon 
Bowdoin meets Bates on 
Whittier field in what promises to be the 
hardest fought as well as the most important 
game of the year. Both teams have won two 
games and this game will decide the cham- 
pionship. It is needless to call the attention 
of the college to the importance of this con- 
test. Four years have passed since we won 
our last foot-ball championship; it is about 
time we had another. Bates has been steadily 
improving this last week and the work of our 
own players during the past two weeks has 
demonstrated that our team is capable of 
splendid foot-ball. The team realizes the 
strength of their opponents and how much 



is at stake in this last and most important 
game of the year and will work with a "do or 
die" spirit to end the season successfully. 
To-morrow's game should be a repetition of 
last Saturday's in its enthusiasm. Let us 
hope it will be in its results. 



Maine Game. 



The foot-ball team 
deserves the heartiest con- 
gratulations upon their decisive victory over 
Maine. The most enthusiastic Bowdoin sup- 
porter hardly dared look for more than a 
score against the indomitable Maine team, but 
to win so decisively on their own grounds 
seems too good to be true. Not one of the 
eleven but played plucky foot-ball and did his 
best. Not one of the team but covered him- 
self with glory. Coach McClave and the 
team have every reason to feel pleased with 
the showing they made.

which we know are unex- 
celled by any colleges of our class, should be 
used, not abused. The Reading-Room papers 
are not furnished as a convenient means by 
which the students' scrap books can be kept 
supplied. The publications there on file are 
the common property of the entire college and 
anybody who mutilates them is infringing on 
the rights of the college. The most recent of 
these offences occurred last week when some- 
one mutilated one of the Portland papers, by 
cutting out an account of the recent Junior 
elections. The price of this paper is two cents 
and this sum, consequently, represents the 
gain for which this person was willing to vio- 
late the laws of decency and honor. He is 
beneath criticism.

only of inestimable benefit to the Freshmen, 
but also to upperclassmen. Few colleges of 
Bowdoin's size have such wealth in art. It is 
to be regretted that the students, during their 
four years course, do not take advantage of 
the opportunities offered by the Walker Art 
Building. Often a visitor to our campus 
remarks that "If he were a Bowdoin student 
he would spend half of his time in this beau- 
tiful treasure house of art." How many of 
the students have even taken the trouble to 
make a tour of the galleries and, by the aid 
of an art collection catalogue, become famil- 
iar with the many rare gems of art which they 
contain? No man can be called truly cul- 
tured who has not some knowledge and 
appreciation of the fine arts. 



American Flag. 



Strangely enou 



although we have a place 
dedicated to Divine reverence, one to the 
honored dead of the college and many 
to the pursuit of wisdom, we still do not have 
a place that testifies to Bowdoin's love for the 
nation. What more fitting place could there 
be to flaunt the stars and stripes than the old, 
old campus where the first students began 
their labors only a decade after the nation's 
founding? In this little ideal world of ours 
we should not be allowed to forget the great 
nation, whose growth has been so analogous 
to our own. The daily sight of Old Glory 
floating free on the wandering breezes would 
surely help in welding the tissues of our char- 
acters firmer and making us better and truer 
men, the supreme object of our education 
here. Truly, the little expense that would be 
incurred with the setting up of a flag-pole on 
the campus and the purchase of a flag would 
be one of the best investments of recent years. 



A privilege of which 
many Bowdoin students 
are slow in availing them- 
selves is that of calling upon the members of 
the Faculty. It is one of the very great

advantages of a small college that the Profes- 
sors and students are brought much into con- 
tact, but there is room for much closer rela- 
tionship here at Bowdoin. It is surprising 
that a large per cent, of the students go 
through college without meeting a professor 
outside of his class room. Many who have 
business with members of the Faculty fail to 
call upon them for fear — perhaps — of being 
held in contempt by their classmates. Such 
a feeling is nonsensical. No student need 
fear that familiarity with the refined and 
affable gentlemen who constitute the Bow- 
doin Faculty, will breed contempt for them. 
Now that all the members of the Faculty have 
appointed regular calling hours, we hope to 
see all the students avail themselves of the 
opportunity to become better acquainted with 
the Faculty. 



BOWDOIN'S RHODES SCHOLAR. 

In the November number of the Good Will 
Record David R. Porter, ex-1906, who won the 
Cecil Rhodes scholarship in this state, has an inter- 
esting article describing his trip across the Atlantic 
on his way to Oxford. He took passage on the 
Cunard liner "Ivernia," sailing September 27, 1904, 
with thirty-five out of the forty-three students who 
go from America this year. 

Mr. Porter says concerning these students that 
"All of them were between twenty and twenty-five 
years of age; seven had taken the Master of Arts 
degree from American institutions; twenty-eight 
the Bachelor of Arts degree; nine were Phi Beta 
Kappa men. Thirteen had graduated in the Class 
of 1904, five were members of the Class of 1905, 
and one had just finished the Sophomore year. 
■ ■ . . " Without doubt the last was Mr. 
Porter himself. 

They had a very pleasant voyage, not a cloud 
appearing in the sky during the week on board. 
A committee of entertainments was chosen which 
arranged tournaments of shuffteboard, chess and 
checkers; excursions were made over the ship; a 
mock trial was held. There were several noted 
foreigners on board, who gave talks on the customs 
and politics of their countries. One night the cap- 
tain of the ship arranged a concert in which the 
Rhodes students took part and sang a number of 
American songs. 

Mr. Porter closes by saying that "The experi- 
ences on the way to Oxford have shown us that 
every wish of the modern ocean traveller is fully 
satisfied unless it is an occasional, but none the less 
passionate desire 'to get off and walk,' and this 
desire is partially met by the opportunities of the 
broad deck where we can go out any time for a 
hundred-yard dash."

GLEE CLUB TRIALS. 

With the close of the foot-ball season the atten- 
tion of the undergraduates must be called to the 
ways in which they can further Bowdoin's interests 
in the winter months, and in no better way can this 
be done than by lending hearty support to the musi- 
cal organizations. In college at present, and espe- 
cially in the incoming class, is to be found some of 
the best material that has ever been available for 
glee club use, and never before has there been a 
better opportunity offered for talent on the club than 
at this time. Every man with any ability whatever 
should report for the trials and make at least an 
attempt to represent Bowdoin in a branch of activ- 
ity as important as any athletic interest.

The Harvard Faculty have decided to allow 
undergraduates who have completed the require- 
ments for the degree of A.B., with the exception of 
a single course, to be admitted to the graduate school 
as candidates for an A.M. This ruling will make it 
less difficult for men to acquire both degrees within 
four years, and still retain identity with their class.

After the parade the Technology students retired 
to the Rogers Building where they were going to

When they reached the building they found it sur- 
rounded by platoons of police and an encounter

4.2 per cent, of non-appointments are members of 
editorial boards of the college publications or have 
competed in important debates ; 13.2 per cent of 
those who received appointments and 16.3 per cent, 
of those who failed have been members of a class

In order that the students who have Junior Ger-

with our campus and new buildings. 

Rev. Oscar W. Peterson, of the ' Class of 1906,

Church, to become its pastor for one year. He 
will continue his studies at college at the same time. 
The church, which • has been without a pastor for

About thirty citizens of Brunswick met in the 
court room, Friday evening, and appointed a com-

appointed as a committee to organize the corpora-

Prof. G. T. Files. Harvey J. Given and F. C. Webb. 

While a certain Freshman was crossing the 
campus one night last week, on his way home from 
Bath, he was assaulted by a large musk-rat. After 
a valiant defense, the hungry brute was beaten off 
and killed. Post mortem examination determined 



the case as one of assault with intent to kill. It 
is thought that the animal had been set to watch 
the approach to the sacred city by the Sophomore 
Class. At any rate it ilooks dangerous for the 
Freshmen to be out late nights. 

"You must win. Defeat means humiliation by our 
ancient foe, our nearest and deadliest rival, so fight, 
fight, fight, and win. When you have the ball let 
eleven human battering rams batter the Bowdoin 
line with a force stone walls would not be able to 
withstand. When Bowdoin has the ball let eleven 
pairs of blue legs grow into the clay of Alumni 
Field and stand firm as the proverbial oaks. Let 
eleven men possessed of almost superhuman strength 
meet the onslaught more than half way. No steps 
backward. You can and you must beat Bowdoin," 
says the Maine Campus. It is too bad that a foot- 
ball team will not take the advice of the college 
paper. If Maine had profited by this advice the 
result would have been different?

MAINE MEDICAL SCHOOL. 

The Bowdoin Medical School now extends over 
a course of eight months, from the 22d of Octo- 
ber until the middle of June. This added time has 
been made necessary because of the increasing 
requirements for practicing medicine in several of 



J 72 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



the states. This, quite naturally, has reduced the 
number of the entering class somewhat, although 
facts seem to show that medical classes all over the 
country are somewhat smaller this year than in for- 
mer years. One fact in connection with the Medi- 
cal School, which is probably not realized to-day, 
is that now the entrance examinations of this 
department are higher and stricter than of the col- 
lege proper. The requirements have been steadily 
increasing for the last few years and now in the 
corresponding subjects — such as Latin, Mathemat- 
ics, and so forth — the same breadth of knowledge is 
required in both departments, while in the Medical 
School a much wider range of subjects is 
required for admission. It is, perhaps, noteworthy 
in connection with the recent classes to note the 
increased number of college men who are entering 
the school. The Maine Medical School ranks 
to-day with the best schools of its kind in this 
country. 



Communication. 



To the Editor of the Orient: 

For some time the editors of the Quill have been 
considerably disturbed by the dearth of material sub- 
mitted to them by the lower classes. The present 
outlook for the future of the Quill has to us become 
so alarming that we deem it necessary to make a 
statement of the situation for the consideration of 
the alumni and undergraduates. 

It may be said for information that the Quill 
has no permanent constitution, the rules governing 
its management being formed by each successive 
board, but seldom changed from year to year except 
under extraordinary circumstances. According to 
the present method the editorial board is composed 
of six men, taken from the Junior Class in January, 
who serve until the January of their Senior year. 
This system was inaugurated at the time of the 
election of the present board. For the two years 
prior to that the board was composed of four. Can- 
didates for the Quill board must have three articles 
accepted and printed in order to be eligible for 
election. 

From the Class of 1906, at the present writing, 
only one member has so qualified. There are also 
two other men who will probably qualify before Jan- 
uary. While we have received articles from other 
members of the class, the majority of them have not 
been of sufficient merit to warrant printing. So 
that for next year's board it seems almost certain 
that only three men will have qualified in January, 
whereas there should have been at least six.' 

In self-defence we may say that this state of 
things has not been due to any lack of energy on 
our part. We have drawn out, we believe, the best 
material of which the present Junior Class is capable. 
It should also be said, in order not to reflect too 
severely on the class, that two of their best writers, 
who were sure of election to the board, have left 
college. 

Such is the situation. Plainly, there is only one 
of two things to be done. Either the Quill must be 
left in the hands of the two or three who qualify; 
or, in accordance with the suggestion in your edi- 



torial column of last week, the rules must be 
changed so that the editorial board may include men 
from both the Junior and Sophomore classes. We 
cannot think seriously of lowering the standard to 
admit men who have had only one or two articles 
accepted. 

Before we take any radical step we desire the 
advice of all who are interested in the welfare of 
the Quill. This is a matter which concerns the 
whole college. We have written personally to a 
number of alumni who have been especially inter- 
ested in the Quill for their advice, and we solicit 
correspondence through the columns of the Orient 
from the Faculty, the alumni, and the undergradu- 
ates. 

Thanking you for the use of your space, we are 
Yours very sincerely, 

The Quill Board. 



DRIPPINGS FROM THE GRIDIRON. 

(For a keen appreciation of the following bits 
of verse we refer you to an editorial in a recent 
issue of the Maine Campus which has been dubbed 
by the Lewiston Journal "Hannibal's Second 
Speech.") 

But if Old Bowdoin gets the ball 

And charges fiercely at our line. 
Then let your legs grow to the clay ! 

Stand firm as the proverbial pine ! 

Thus in a harangue long and wild 

As spoke Napoleon to his men, 
The Maine State Campus showed the way 

To beat Old Bowdoin once again. 

Alas ! Those words did not avail, 
Their legs indeed grew to the clay, 

While Bowdoin's backs ran round the ends 
And made first down on every play. 

From line to line on up the field, 

Those blue-legged heroes did they drive, 

And when at last the game was o'er, 
The score was twenty-two to five. 



BOWDOIN 22, MAINE 6. 

The boys went down to Orono with pockets full of 

tricks, 
They worked them off on U. of M., 'twas just like 

"breaking sticks." 
They won the game so prettily, twenty-two to six. 
For Bowdoin was in her ancient glory, etc. 

(This bit of verse as well as the following, was 
written by an alumnus who evidently gave Maine 
gratuitously an extra point.) 



FOR THE BATES GAME. 

Now Bowdoin boys, "it's up to you" to win this 

other game. 
Place on your Alma Mater's brow another wreath 

of fame. 
As you did to Maine and Colby, now to Bates do 

just the same, 
For Bowdoin is in her ancient glory, etc.

Untercolleoiate IRews. 



Harvard has abolished "Bloody Monday." 

In seven games Michigan's eleven has scored 
479 points and her opponents have made but 6. 

The report' of the Committee, on Employment 
for Students at Columbia University, shows that 
the record earnings of those students applying for 
aid amounted to $74,021.17 this last year. In June 
there were 508 applicants and the average amount 
earned by each student was $145.71. 

The Faculty of the University of Nebraska 
recently gave a circus, consisting of a foot-ball 
game, tug of war, slow bicycle race and several 
other similar events. 

President Eliot has decided that admission to 
athletic contests will be free to all Harvard students 
as soon as the Stadium is paid for, which, it is 
expected, will be within three years. 

Statistics show the enrollment of the leading 
American universities for 1904 to be as follows : 
Harvard, 6,013; Columbia, 4,557; Chicago, 4,146; 
Northwestern, 4,007 ; Michigan, 3.926 ; California, 
3,690; Illinois, 3,661; Minnesota, 3,550; Cornell, 
3,438; Wisconsin. 3,221; Yale, 2.990; Pennsylvania, 
2.664; College of the City of New York, 2.511 ;

Jr., 1.370; Princeton, 1,383; Johns Hopkins, 695. 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



VOL. XXXIV. 



BRUNSWICK, MAINE, NOVEMBER 18, 1904. 



NO. 16. 



BOWDOIN WINS 
CHAMPIONSHIP. 

BATES DEFEATED 12-6. 



Last Saturday proved another red-letter day in 
Bowdoin's calendar, for it marks the date on which 
her foot-ball standards were again raised to their 
former place. It has taken four long years to do it, 
but it has been done at last most gloriously. With 
Colby beaten we were hopeful, with Maine defeated 
we were confident, and now that Bates has been 
conquered we are champions of the State. It cer- 
tainly sounds like old times. As for the game itself 
it may be said that there never was a better one 
played before so large a crowd in this State. It 
was a struggle from start to finish, and the outcome 
was in doubt till the final whistle blew. Two more 
evenly matched teams never played together in 
Maine before, and to lose such a game was certainly 
no dishonor. The details of the game were as fol- 
lows : Captain Philoon won the toss and chose the 
north goal, Bates kicking off. At 2.15 the whistle 
blew and Messenger kicked to McGraw on the 
10-yard line who ran it in ten yards. A couple of 
line plunges were tried, and only a few yards 
gained so Chapman punted. Wight received the ball 
in mid-field, running it back eight yards. From 
here Bates went straight up the field by steady buck- 
ing, Kendall and Connor doing most of the work 
till the latter went over the line for a touchdown. 
This took just nine minutes and a half. Bates 
kicked out for a fair catch. The ball was heeled 
and Messenger kicked the goal. Messenger kicked 
off to Chapman who ran it in twenty yards. Bow- 
doin was unable to gain, however, and Chapman 
kicked. Bates was off side and the ball was brought 
back. It was then that Bowdoin commenced to 
play, and with straight foot-ball Chapman, Curtis, 
Speake and McGraw carried the ball up the field 
until Curtis took it over for a touchdown. McGraw 
kicked a difficult goal, tieing the score. Chapman 
kicked off to Lord on Bates 10-yard line who ran it 
in 15 yards. After several rushes Bates was penal- 
ized 15 yards for holding, and being unable to make 
up the "distance, punted. After one rush Bowdoin 
lost fifteen yards for holding. Chapman made eight 
yards in two rushes, and then a quarterback kick 
was tried which gained seventeen yards. The ball 
was then pushed to Bates' seven-yard line where 
time was called, the half ending six to six. The 
second half began with Chapman's kick to Messen- 



ger on the fifteen-yard line, who ran it in to the 
thirty-yard line. Their offence was weak and Bates 
soon had to punt. Messenger kicked thirty yards, 
and Chapman ran it back five. After a couple of 
good gains by Speake, Bowdoin was penalized 15 
yards for holding. A fake punt was tried without 
any gain, and Chapman kicked. Then followed sev- 
eral exchanges of punts till Bowdoin finally got the 
ball in mid-field. Finn was then tried and gained 
ten yards. The backs worked the ball to the 28-yard 
line and from there Finn carried the ball in six 
rushes over the goal line for the winning touchdown. 
McGraw kicked the goal. Only a short time 
remained before the end of the half. Chapman 
kicked to Lord. After several attempts by Connor 
the ball went to Bowdoin, and the half ended with 
the ball in Bowdoin's possession. The line-up and 
summary was as follows : 

J. B. Drummond, l.e r.e., Messenger. 

r.e., Libby. 

Finn, l.t )r.t., Schumacher. 

Sanborn, l.g r.g.. Turner.

CELEBRATION. 

Immediately after the game students and alumni 
headed by the band and the business men headed 
by the French band paraded around the campus and 
amid bonfires and colored lights wended their course 
through the principal streets. Celebration was re- 
sumed in the evening when the team was escorted 
through town in a large barge. It was early in the 
morning when the festivities of the occasion were 
discontinued. 



READING BY JOHN KENDRICK BANGS. 

On Saturday evening. November 19, Mr. John 
Kendrick Bangs, the well-known humorist, will 
give readings from his writings, at the Unita- 
rian Church, on Federal Street, under the 



\16 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



auspices of the Saturday Club. Mr. Bangs is too 
well known all over the country to demand any 
comment. Everyone is familiar with his "Coffee 
and Repartee," "The Idiot," and "The Houseboat 
on the Styx." He has been called the representa- 
tive American humorist and ranks as one of the 
best known men in this branch of literature to-day. 
He has been associated with Life, Literature, Har- 
per's Weekly, and the Cosmopolitan. This is the 
first time Mr. Bangs has ever been in this part of 
the country, and the opportunity of hearing him 
should be taken by every college man. 



production ever given in the State, and there is no 
question but that its success will again be proved 
provided the fellows take the necessary interest. 



"KING PEPPER." 

Manager Putnam has lately completed the 
arrangements for the production of the farcical opera 
"King Pepper," and Mr. A. J. Burns, of Gardiner, 
the author of the play, will begin rehearsals Mon- 
day night. It is hoped that every one who is invited 
to take part will do so, for it will be a difficult piece 
of work, and the best men possible are needed. 
Nothing of the kind has ever before been under- 
taken by the students, and for this reason it ought 
to be a great success. It has proved so in the two 
cities where it has been presented, and the fact that 
the parts usually taken by ladies, will be filled by 
fellows, should make it the more interesting. The 
cast will require fifty or sixty fellows and providing 
the work is done well the play will undoubtedly be 
put on in other places. The story of the opera is 
rather a unique one. King Pepper is an old ruler 
in an island of the moon, much addicted to the use 
of liquor. For this reason his subjects wish a new 
king, and he is to be deposed. Prince Harold, a rel- 
ative of the King, and next in succession, does what 
he can to overthrow the ruler. Professor Mars, 
the court astrologer and loyal subject of the King, 
tells him that the Queen is in love with Prince Har- 
old who is in turn in love with one of the King's 
subjects, Bertina. The Professor, ntoreover, 
informs the King that the earth is signaling him 
through the telescope, and that he ought to take a 
trip there and remain a while till the trouble is past. 
The King decides to do so, and starts with his 
guard and a few trusted subjects. The royal party 
arrives at the Lewiston Fair Grounds during the 
progress of the annual fair. There they see the 
horse racing, faklirs, country people, bootblacks, 
jockeys, and many things such as they never have 
seen before. They are very much surprised, but 
are received in such an ostentatious manner that 
the King is greatly pleased. Meanwhile the Queen 
with six waiting maids, accompanied by Prince 
Harold, arrive in some mysterious manner on the 
earth, and appear at the fair in disguise. Queen 
Mars takes the King aside and explains everything 
to him in a most satisfactory manner. And the 
play ends with the decision of the King, Queen, and 
their party to remain on earth. Prince Harold and 
Bertina. the new Queen, go back to the moon to rule, 
and peace is restored. It is an exceedingly bright 
and catchy opera full of wit and abounding in strik- 
ing scenes. The music is especially fine. It was 
written by Mr. E. P. Favor, also of Gardiner, and 
is. indeed', a credit to the composer. The play has 
undoubtedly proved as successful as any amateur 



MEETING OF THE IBIS. 

The first literary meeting of the Ibis for the year 
was held in the History Seminar Room, Hubbard 
Hall, on Thursday evening, November ioth. Dr. 
Frederick H. Gerrish of Portland read an intensely 
interesting paper on "The Good that Insanity Has 
Done the World." It was the writer's purpose to 
glean from the terrible and revolting history of 
insanity some instances which show that even this 
scourge has not in its effect been wholly detrimental. 
Dr. Gerrish treated the subject in a novel way and 
cited effectively the cases of Joan d'Arc and Sweden- 
bo rg. 

The guests of the Ibis were President Hyde, 
Professor Johnson, Professor Chapman, Dr. Bur- 
nett, Mr. Cram, and Messrs. Williams, Lewis, Hall, 
Webb, Campbell, Foster, Tucker and Brett of the 
Class of 1905. 



DEBATING NOTES. 



There has been steady improvement in the con- 
struction of arguments, especially in the matter of 
getting at clear and convincing special issues 
through careful introductory analysis of the ques- 
tion. The division of the work has been clear, and 
the team work good. 

In the debate on the improvement of public 
highways, much of the argument was beside the 
point, with resulting waste in the time of the 
speaker and the patience of the audience. 

The speaking from the floor as a whole is still 
ineffective, for lack of adequate preparation. 

For the debate of December 6 (Section B) the 
question is : United States Senators should be 
elected by popular vote. For the affirmative, the 
speakers are Harvey, Hatch, Andrews; for the neg- 
ative, Cleaves, Bartlett, Erskine. 

Section B will have no meeting next week, but 
members of Section B may speak in the debate of 
November 21. 

Both sections are expected to attend the Inter- 
section Debate of November 29. The presiding 
officer will be Sewall. 

In the meeting next Monday Norton will speak 
in place of W. A. Powers. 



THEATRE ATTRACTIONS. 

The following attractions are booked at the 
Empire Theatre : 

Nov. 18-19 — Clara Turner Stock Co.

Christian association litems. 



The regular Thursday evening meeting was 
under the direction of Bartlett, '06. The subject, 
"Christ's Appeal to Manhood," was very thoroughly 
discussed by the audience and leader. The attend- 
ance shows a very marked increase. It is to be 
hoped that the attendance will be still further aug- 
mented as the auditorium will hold many others. 

SUNDAY AFTERNOON SERVICE. 

On Sunday afternoon, November thirteenth, the 
Association was addressed by Douglass Cook. Har- 
vard, 1905." Mr. Cook's subject was "The Ideal of 
a College Man's Christianity." His talk was prac- 
tical, forceful and helpful to all who attended the 
service. When we realize that it is this practical 
training of our Association which is making such 
strong, earnest, helpful men as Mr. Cook and many 
others like him, we may more fully appreciate its 
force in our college world. 

SECOND LECTURE. 

On Sunday evening, November twentieth, the 
Association will hold its second service in connec- 
tion with the Church on the Hill. The speaker for 
this service will be the Rev. John C. Perkins of 
Portland. Mr. Perkins is a recent graduate of the 
college and is fully in touch with the needs and spirit 
of his Alma Mater. His subject, "Christian Citi- 
zenship" — is one which has a practical side for us 
all. Let us give him a good reception by attending 
his lecture. 

GYMNASIUM WORK. 

The Association is to assist the Bath Local Asso- 
ciation in its gymnasium work. The work will be 
under the leadership of Hall, '05. There will doubt- 
less be opportunity for any others, who may desire, 
to assist Hall in his work. Any_ such should make 
their application either to Hall or Greene, '05. 



PRESIDENT HYDE'S MESSAGE. 

On the front cover of the Congrcgationalist, of 
November 12. appears the following message from 
President Hyde, which is worthy of notice from all 
Bowdoin men : 

Who is the Christian? 

He who dwells in the world as a son in his 
Father's house, sharing with his brothers the good 
things it contains : 

He who is free because he makes the Father's 
will, and all the laws that spring from it, his own : 

He who finds everywhere that chance to love 
which is the best thing any station can afford, and 
welcomes the suffering which puts it to the test : 

He who instinctively takes the point of view of 
the man with whom he deals, and finds social ser- 
vice as absorbing as his personal affairs : 

He who prefers the sweet peace of obscurity, yet 
lets his example shine as far and wide as God's 
glory and man's good require : 



He who, recognizing his own elemental tenden- 
cies in others' failings, is ever ready to forgive: 

He who sees that doing wrong is a worse evil 
than the injury it inflicts, and would cut off his 
right hand rather than cause another needless 
pain, or loss, or degradation : 

He who is so intent on doing good that he never 
doubts that all needed goods will come to him in 
return : 

He who needs no oath to support his integrity, 
and whose kindness knows no bounds : 

He who speaks his inmost thought, and acts out 
his noblest impulses : 

He who does these things? No. 

He who, finding them beyond his strength, con- 
fesses as Lord and Master the Christ who did and 
taught them: and cultivates the Spirit by whose aid 
these and a thousand kindred graces may be pro- 
gressively attained. 



ALL-MAINE FOOT-BALL TEAM. 

Various newspapers in the State have published 
during the past week their selection of an all-Maine 
team. Local prejudice has influenced nearly all the 
selections, some of which are ludicrous and show 
plainly that the writers have not closely followed 
the state games this year. A man cannot be justly 
put on the all-Maine team because of his past repu- 
tation. "It isn't what you were, it's what you are 
to-day." In view of the work of the several foot- 
ball men this year and particularly their work 
against Bowdoin, the Orient wishes to submit what 
it considers the strongest team. J. Drummond 
(Bowdoin), I.e.; Finn (Bowdoin), l.t. ; W. Bearce 
(Maine), l.g. ; Philoon (Bowdoin), c. ; Hawkes- 
worth (Bowdoin), r.g. ; Reed (Bates), r.t. ; Mes- 
senger (Bates), r.e. ; McGraw (Bowdoin), q.b. ; 
Chapman (Bowdoin), l.h.b. ; Speake (Bowdoin), 
r.h.b. : Curtis (Bowdoin), f.b. 



ATHLETIC COUNCIL MEETS. 

A meeting of the Athletic Council was held 
immediately after the foot-ball game last Saturday, 
at which several important matters were brought 
up. The protest of the University of Maine against 
Curtis and McGraw was discussed. It was claimed 
that Curtis had played on Colby's team last year, 
but if he did this it was not as a regular member 
of the college. The matter with reference to 
McGraw was laid on the table awaiting develop- 
ments from Maine. 

The following men were recommended to receive 
their foot-ball "B's." J. Drummjond, Finn, San- 
born, Philoon, Hawkesworth, Garcelon, W. Drum- 
mond, McGraw, Chapman, Curtis, Speake, Blanch- 
ard. Kinsman and Skolfield. The nominees for 
managership are J. W. Sewall and C. C. Shaw, F. 
Packard alternate ; for assistant-managership, A. O. 
Pike and Neil W. Allen; Ralph Sawyer, alternate. 
The question of allowing specials to compete in 
athletic contests was referred to but no definite 
action taken. Meeting adjourned till Friday, 
December 18.

Sectional Clubs 
Again. 



As a result of the foot- 
ball championship we may 
expect a large entering 
class next fall, for there is no doubt that the 
athletic standing of a college makes a great 
impression upon sub-Freshmen. It is the 
duty of the sectional clubs to see that the class 
is as large as possible. The fact that we have 
won the championship can be of great help in 
getting desirable men here if the sectional 
clubs make judicial use of it. It is with great 
pleasure that we learn that the Massachusetts 



Club is to have its first meeting to-morrow 
night. This club will have about twenty-two 
members this year and ought to do even better 
work than it did last year. Though the other 
clubs have started on their work the interest 
seems to lag somewhat. The result of the 
year's work on the gridiron, however, should 
inspire the fellows with new zeal for profitable 
work this year. 



Thanksgiving 
Vacation. 



Thanksgiving day is pecul- 
iarly a New England holi- 
day, though it is cele- 
brated by rich and poor throughout the 
country. It had its origin in the hearts of 
that same sturdy band of our ancestry who 
gave to us our social, civil, educational and 
religious institutions. It is not only a day of 
public thanksgiving; it is a day of family 
reunion. It is the day of all the year when 
the old homestead stands first in the minds of 
all. It is the day of all days when every stu- 
dent who possibly can, wishes to be at home. 
In previous years, when we were allowed a 
three days' vacation, nearly every student in 
Bowdoin was able to participate in the pleas- 
ant festival with his family. This year it is 
different. Owing to the restriction of the 
vacation to Thanksgivng day alone, many of 
the students who live fairly near the college, 
feel that it is not worth their while to go home, 
while for those who live farther away it is 
utterly impossible, owing to the system of 
double cuts, lately adopted. 

We do not mean by this to criticise the sys- 
tem which the Faculty have adopted, for we 
know that the adoption of this system was 
essential to the welfare of the college. We 
merely petition in behalf of the entire stu- 
dent body that the Faculty grant at least the 
Friday following Thanksgiving as a holiday. 
This would enable the majority of the under- 
graduates to go home without iucurring the 
risk of taking too many cuts and make the trip 
possible for those who would not go as mat-

t79 



ters stand now. In the end, it would undoubt- 
edly be more satisfactory to both the Faculty 
and students. The granting of this petition 
would certainly be welcomed with the most 
profound gratitude by the latter. 



An Appreciation. 



The Orient, for the stu- 



dent body, desires to 
express its deep thanks to the business men 
and citizens of Brunswick for their appear- 
ance and hearty support of old Bowdoin at the 
foot-ball game last Saturday. In many ways 
through the year Brunswick men help and 
encourage the students in their undergraduate 
efforts and we are sure that every Bowdoin 
man appreciates this kindness and attention. 
It is a source of great pride to us all that none 
of the traditional feeling between "town and 
gown" exists in Brunswick, but that the 
heartiest fellowship and good-will is always 
present. May it ever be thus ! 



Window Breaking. 



While it can be safelv said 



that the "hoodlum" spirit 
is less common at Bowdoin than at many 
other institutions, last Saturday's celebration 
showed that we are by no means free from it. 
While much can be overlooked as occurring 
in the celebration of a great foot-ball victory, 
the wilful and foolish destruction of college 
property is inexcusable under' any circum- 
stances. A man can surely show his love for 
his college and his appreciation of a victorious 
foot-ball team without leaving a lot of broken 
windows and incandescent lights as a result. 
It is to be hoped that this recent demolition 
of property has arisen from pure thoughtless- 
ness on the part of the over-enthusiastic and 
it is earnestly hoped that such action immedi- 
ately cease. 



Fool Ball Number. 



The next number of the 



Orient will be our foot- 
ball number — containing a resume of the past 
season and the statistics of the players.

The Team. 

years we have defeated all 

the other Maine colleges in foot-ball, arid we 
may justly feel proud of our team. They 
have worked hard, and for a reward have won 
three of the grandest victories ever won by a 
Bowdoin team. To every man who has been 
on the foot-ball field this fall in togs, whether 
he played on the 'varsity or the second team, 
and the latter deserves as much credit as the 
former, we extend the hearty appreciation of 
the whole college and the alumni. We wish 
to congratulate Captain Philoon on the 
remarkable success which his men have 
achieved. It is, indeed, an honor to have been 
captain of such a team and we feel that no 
worthier man ever held the position. As for 
Coach McClave, it is enough to say that his 
work will always be remembered, and that he 
will ever be held in admiration and esteem by 
Bowdoin men. He has imbued into our men 
that indomitable Princeton spirit which has 
made the team champion of the state. Too 
much praise, therefore, cannot be said in his 
behalf, and it is with the greatest anticipa- 
tion that we look forward to his being the 
coach another year. 



In connection with the 
Physical .... 

Examinations. annual P h y sical examina- 
tion of the Freshman 
Class, it would almost seem that much good 
could be derived from a similar examination 
at the end of the Junior or Senior year. While 
the present system furnishes the basis of 
knowing the exact condition of each man 
when he enters college, there is at present no 
means of knowing what changes have 
occurred or to what extent he has improved 
his opportunities along the line of physical 
training during his course. Bodily develop- 
ment in the college course is growing more 
and more to be looked on as a real and impor- 
tant part of a man's course. That an exami- 
nation be taken toward the end of a man's 



ISO 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



course would not only be instructive, as show- 
ing what he has done along this line, but 
would also add an interest to each fellow in a 
way that could not fail of beneficial results. 
While it could not, perhaps, be possible nor 
desirable to put it on anything like the basis of 
work done along the line of studies, it could 
nevertheless be placed in such a light, as a part 
of the college course, that would make each 
man take a pride and interest in his physical 
improvement during his four years, with^no 
small amount of good to himself in after years. 



Communication. 



The Alumni. 



One of the most notable 
features in connection 
with the game last Saturday was the number 
of alumni who were back to college. Surely 
none of the undergraduates have ever seen so 
many here before to an event of this kind, 
and it was with the greatest of pleasure that 
they were welcomed. It has ever been a 
cause of regret to undergraduate students that 
more of the alumni do not return oftener, and 
all sincerely hope that this event marks a 
change. We are frequently apt to feel, when 
the graduates leave and do not return, that 
they have lost all interest in us and in the col- 
lege. To have them come back, however, as 
they did Saturday in such large numbers, with 
all kinds of praise and encouragement makes 
us see and realize beyond a doubt that they are 
behind us and how great is their loyalty. 



THE CALENDAR. 

The 1905 Bowdoin Souvenir Calendar will be 
out promptly the first of December. It will include 
cuts of the base-ball, tennis and track teams of last 
spring with cuts of the managers and captains for 
next year; the Dramatic, Glee and Mandolin- 
Guitar Clubs of last year, with this year's leaders 
and managers ; this year's foot-ball Captain and 
Manager with the squad from which was developed 
our championship team ; the college buildings with 
a few of the most attractive interiors ; the memorial 
gates ; the new grand-stand ; the several fraternity 
houses ; in all, 22 new cuts, with a few of those 
used in the '03 calendar. A sample of the genuine 
buckram cover will be on exhibition immediately. 
Orders should be placed at once with Harvey, '05. 



Dear Editor: 

The student body of the college retains the 
privilege of always criticising the Faculty 
when it believes that the Faculty has trans- 
cended the traditions of Bowdoin for the worse. 
Under that privilege I wish to offer a little 
criticism of some of our new instructors. I 
wish to call the attention of these instruct- 
ors to the fact that up to the present time 
almost twice the amount of work has been 
accomplished in a year in each course at Bow- 
doin than in most other institutions in the 
country. This, of course, means that the car- 
rying of four full courses entails a great 
amount of labor. At Bowdoin,- also, it is 
believed that sufficient time should be left to 
the students for college associations which go 
a great way towards a man's education. It has 
been noticeable this fall that some of our new 
instructors have ignored both of these prop- 
ositions by giving us a much greater amount 
of work than ever before, so much in fact that 
if a man went to work conscientiously he 
would have to put his whole available time in 
two courses alone, ignoring the rest. Further 
our instructors have forgotten that most of 
their courses were offered to beginners and 
have given enough work in these beginning 
courses to tax a man of a year's experience 
and swamp the men of no experience. Under 
this new regime it is almost impossible for a 
man to carry an extra course and still get a 
high mark in his other courses. In behalf of 
the student body I plead for a little leniency.

ART BUILDING TREASURE. 

The New York Tribune in a current issue 
says : 

Apropos of the interesting article in the 
A r £tt' York Tribune of November 4 by the 
Marquise de Fontenoy on the subject of nefs, 
or models of ships in silver, used for the deco- 
ration of the table, it is interesting to know 
that Bowdoin College possesses one of these 
rare and beautiful masterpieces of the silver- 
smith's art. writes a correspondent to the 
Tribune. He says : "I do not remember the 
exact date of its manufacture, but I think it is 
a German piece of the 17th century. It is of 
exquisite workmanship and in perfect preserva-

tion, and, being somewhat smaller than those 
described by the marquise, it probably belongs 
to the class of nefs called cadenas. These 
were placed on the table beside high person- 
ages to contain the knife, fork, spoon, salt cel- 
lar and spices used by each dignitary. It is 
certainly interesting to reflect that in a New 
England college we may find a charming 
example of old silver work such as, the mar- 
quise assures us, we should look for in vain in 
the museums of Paris and London." 



A LETTER OF GOV. BOWDOIN. 

An autograph letter, sent by James Bowdoin, 
President of the Council of Massachusetts^ to the 
Passamaquoddy Indians, has just been received by 
the college. The Indians had sent a wampum belt 
to the Massachusetts State Council and they, 
through Governor Bowdoin, had returned it with a 
medal attached. He also sent this letter thanking 
them for their aid and promising them the aid of 
the council. 

One paragraph reads as follows : "We do, in 
behalf of the Congress of the United States of 
America, sincerely thank you for the love and 
friendship you have expressed. . . . and as a 
testimony thereof and for continuing the Alliance. 
. We have returned your Belt of Friendship 
with a Medal thereunto affixed expressive of our 
sincerity towards our good Brothers (the Indians) 
in the Eastern part of this state. Our Brother, the 
Sieur de Vatnac, Consul of France, will affix a 
Medal, in behalf of our Illustrious Ally, the King 
of France, to the other end of the belt as a token of 
his Friendship " 

The letter is dated August 23, 1780. At the 
beginning of nearly every paragraph the Indians are 
addressed as "Brothers." The size of the sheet is 
about 24 inches long by 18 inches wide. The paper 
is very heavy and the letter itself covers one side. 
Relics of Governor Bowdoin are very rare and this 
letter is highly valued. At present it can be seen 
at Hubbard Hall. 

It is signed : "In behalf and in the name of the 
council, James Bowdoin, President." Under his 
name is written : "To the Chiefs, Sachems, and 
young Men of the different tribes of Indians under 
Col. John AMan. Superintendent of Indian Affairs 
in the Eastern Department." 



THE LIBRARY. 



BOOKS RECENTLY ADDED. 
Cleveland, Grover. Presidential Problems. 

A review of some questions which came up for 
settlement during Mr. Cleveland's second term. 
The first paper is of a general nature and deals with 
"The Independence of the Executive." The remain- 



ing three, however, treat of specific problems and 
offer a defense of the course pursued by Mr. Cleve- 
land at the time the questions were settled. The 
subjects of the papers are "The Government in the 
Chicago Strike of 1894," "The Bond Issues," and 
"The Venezuelan Boundary Controversy." These 
questions while still remaining the subject of much 
criticism are here discussed with unusual clearness 
and fairness. (973.86 : C 59) 

Siebert, W. H. The Government of Ohio. 

The publication of this volume, first announced 
for 1903, has been delayed until the present time in 
order to include in it certain important revisions 
recently made in the Ohio laws. The book gives a 
careful survey of the growth, structure and work of 
the state government. (342.771 : S 57) 

Sargent, D. A. Health, Strength and Power. 

This is a practical book which will have a special 
interest for college and professional men. Dr. Sar- 
gent has devised a system of exercises which may be 
practiced without apparatus and which will at the 
same time contribute to all-round development. He 
gives many valuable suggestions on exercise and per- 
sonal hygiene. Dr. Sargent graduated in the Class 
of '75 and is now Director of the Hemenway gym- 
nasium at Cambridge. (6i3:S23) 

liearn, Lafcadio. Japan, an Attempt at an lnter= 
pretation. 

Of the many books which have appeared on 
Japan this may unquestionably be ranked among 
the best Mr. Hearn is favorably known as a fin- 
ished writer as well as an interpreter of Japan. He 
was a thorough cosmopolitan but temperamentally he 
was best fitted to understand and to reveal the inner 
and religious life of the Japanese. During the latter 
part of his life Mr. Hearn took up his citizenship in 
Japan, adopted many of the Japanese customs, 
taught in the Imperial University at Tokio and dur- 
ing a residence of 14 years gained a remarkable 
insight into the Japanese character and manner of 
life. He regards the Japanese religion as the key 
to an understanding of the national life and thought 
and this he has treated in a sympathetic and friendly 
spirit. (952:H35) 

Wasson, G. S. Cap'n Simeon's Store. 

This book collects some of the dialect and humor 
of a fishing village in the same way that "David 
Harum" preserves the dialect and humor of a farm- 
ing locality. The village store is the gathering place 
for the wits and the author has reproduced, in the 
most realistic way, the local phrases and the witti- 
cisms of the little fishing community which goes by 
the name of Killick Cove, said to be near Glouces- 
ter. (813.49 :W 82) 

NOTES. 

The second meeting of the Library Club was held 
with Mr. Lewis on Saturday, October 29. Fox, '06, 
presented a paper on "Humorous Periodicals." 
Refreshments and an informal discussion followed 
the reading of the paper.

College IRotes. 

All-Maine teams are now the order of the day. 

Several schools in town are closed on account of 
diphtheria. 

President Hyde spoke last Sunday at the 
Weilesley College chapel. 

Several Bowdoin men saw the "Prince of Pilsen" 
at the Jefferson the other night. 

In a recent class meet at Oxford D. R. Porter, 
ex-'o6, won the hammer throw and shot put. 

Several Colby "co-eds" attended the game Sat- 
urday, and cheered lustily in shrill soprano for Bow- 
doin. 

The "Hon. Charles" Doughty addressed a large 
and appreciative audience in the mall on election 
night! 

A. L. Laferriere, 1901, who formerly played end 
on Bowdoin, was on the campus Saturday and Sun- 
day. 

McDougal, '06, has left college for the rest of the 
year to accept a position in the Rockland High 
School. 

In all the games played with the other Maine col- 
leges, Bowdoin has scored 741 points against her 
opponents' 201. 

Some one has suggested that the dormitories 
need fire-escapes. Taking everything into consider- 
ation, it is a pretty good suggestion. 

"Sunny Jim's" Bowdoin Seal cigarettes are sell-

genius ought to reap a rich financial reward. 

Kent Packard, '08, went home last Friday with 
appendicitis. The sympathies* of the college go with 
him and the best wishes for a speedy recovery. 

There was a big crowd at New Meadows Inn 
Saturday noon, and it required lively work for that 
popular place to handle the large number. 

E. A. Knowlton, captain of the Tufts College 
foot-ball team, and C. L. Harrington, manager, were 
on the campus over Sunday, visiting friends. 

There is some prospect of a new train into 
Brunswick from Boston, which will bring the west- 
ern mail and Boston papers into town at 8 o'clock 
instead of about noon time. 

The Sophomores and Freshmen battled for 
supremacy on Whittier Field yesterday afternoon. 
An account of the game will be contained in the 
next issue. 

The new electric cars on the Lewiston, Bath & 
Brunswick line are a great improvement over those 
that have been in use. They will bear comparison 
with the cars to be found anywhere. 

Sunday night the foot-ball team was royally 
entertained at the Inn by the Gumbel brothers. 
Tuesday night, they were again at the Inn as the 
guests of Mr. William Pennell of Lewiston. 

The Delta Upsilon fraternity hopes to purchase 
the Benjamin Green property on lower Maine 
Street for a chapter house. If secured, the house 
will be moved to the lot of land on Maine Street 
below the D. K. E. house. 



The Brunswick Record of last week contains a 
cut of the new hotel which is planned to be put up 
in Brunswick on the corner of Maine and Cumber- 
land Streets ; on the lot now occupied by the Greene 
mansior. 

An enthusiastic mass-meeting was held Friday 
night preceding the foot-ball game. Enthusiastic 
speeches were made by C. T. Hawes, '76 ; Professor 
Robinson, Coach McClave, Weld, '05, and Captain 
Philoon. 

The College Teas, which were so pleasantly 
given last winter by the ladies of the Faculty every 
other Monday during the winter in Hubbard Hall, 
are to be repeated again this year. The first will 
come shortly after Thanksgiving. 

State Senator Kimball of Massachusetts saw the 
Bowdoin-Bates game, and knocked a hole in his 
senatorial derby when Finn made the second touch- 
down. The upper branch of the Massachusetts 
legislature is certainly showing the right spirit. 

The Y. M. C. A. is already preparing for their 
annual convention which is to be held at Paris in 
April. The delegates will sail about the middle of 
March and they will visit Rome and many other 
southern European cities before proceeding to Paris. 

Last week was most emphatically a hard one for 
the name of Bates. In the same week that Bowdoin 
won from Bates College, William L. Douglas, the 
man of "$3.50 shoe" fame, secured equally as great 
a victory over Governor Bates of Massachusetts. 

There were many visitors on the campus, Sat- 
urday forenoon, many coming early to see the foot- 
ball game in the afternoon. There were a large 
number of sub-Freshmen in the number, the dif- 
ferent fraternities entertaining guests during the day 
and evening. 

At a meeting in New York of the Executive 
Committee of the Intercollegiate Athletic Associa- 
tion, it was decided to hold the next championship 
field day at Cambridge next May. This will be a 
good opportunity for the New England colleges to 
participate. 

Among the sub-Freshmen who visited the col- 
lege Saturday and Sunday, were several of the 
Hebron boys : Shaw, Morrill and Brewster, '05 ; 
Seiders, '06, and McFarland, '07. The Hebron team 
played Lewiston Friday, in order to be able to 
attend the Bowdoin-Bates game Saturday. 

It was interesting to note that three of the 
famous old base-ball players of the year 1876, were 
on the campus Saturday witnessing the foot-ball 
game, Frank C. Payson, '76, captain and pitcher, 
Alpheus Sanford. '76, first baseman, and William 
G. Waite, '76, the star fielder. All are now promi- 
nent lawyers, standing high in their profession. 

A certain Sophomore delegation looks on life 
with gloomy eyes just now. They had expended the 
lucre for an elaborate repast, and the edibles, 
temptingly displayed, had been left in the study 
while they went to supper. On their return 
just six silver-plated spoons and an unfinished bot- 
tle of ginger-ale greeted their astonished and indig- 
nant gaze. The perpetrators of this villainous 
theft have not yet been detected, but the finger of 
suspicion points unerringly toward '06.

The many friends of "Jim" Cooney, formerly of 
Exeter, but now in Sophomore Class at Princeton, 
will be pleased to learn that he was unanimously 
elected captain of the foot-ball team for the ensuing 
year. 

The Executive Committee of the Dramatic Asso- 
ciation have narrowed down their large collection 
of plays to two, "His Excellency the Governor" 
and "Because She Loved Him So." Manager Wil- 
liams is negotiating for a coach and the trials will 
be held before Christmas. Undoubtedly there is a 
great treat in store for those who attend next 
winter's performance. 

Members of Chemistry I enjoyed a talk from 
Professor Robinson, Monday, relating to the foot- 
ball victory and his earliest remembrance of college 
athletics. Ever since 'j2 Professor Robinson, 
although not an athlete himself, has been a most 
enthusiastic supporter of all college athletics. His 
speeches at mass-meetings have always been a 
feature, for their wit and sound judgment. 

Friday night witnessed one of the largest Repub- 
lican parades seen in Brunswick for a number of 
years. At 7.30 P.M. the parade formed in front of 
the Republican headquarters with 'the Bowdoin 
band and over one hundred students in the van. 
The parade marched through the principal streets 
of the town, while the Stars and Stripes and pic- 
tures of Roosevelt and Fairbanks were everywhere 
in evidence. Fireworks and colored lights were in 
abundance and the townsmen and students demon- 
strated fully that they wanted Roosevelt for the 
next four years.

FOOT=BALL AT BOWDOIN. 



RESUME OF THE SEASON OF '04. 

Now that the foot-ball season is over and the 
championship of Maine is secured, it is perhaps a 
fitting time to take a backward survey of the work 
done by our team. The record is one that every 
Bowdoin student, alumnus and friend of the college 
may well be proud of. Not so much, perhaps, 
because the team has been a champion one, as 
because of the fact that the championship was 
secured by splendid spirit and splendid work. 

It may honestly be said that the victories won 
are the result of two things alone — spirit and work. 
That surely is what has given us our enviable posi- 
tion at the head of the list. 

Often teams have won championships by stress of 
splendid material and experienced men, and the land- 
ing of the championship has been practically a fore- 
gone conclusion. Such has not been the case with 
Bowdoin this year. At the beginning of the year 
our prospects were not considered especially bright. 
There did not seem to be a greater "amount of mate- 
rial on hand than in previous years, nor did the mate- 
rial seem to be of particularly better quality. Yet 
out of this material a team was developed that 
proved itself a wonder. 

Coach McClave and Bowdoin spirit did a work 
that was a revelation to those who did not know 
what was being done. We cannot help recalling 
what some of the newspapers of the State said after 
a preliminary survey of Bowdoin's prospects in the 
early days of the fall, that Bowdoin had got to hus- 
tle this year to keep away from the bottom. And 
this feeling was quite generally shared by many 
people in the State — even the alumni .feeling rather 
discouraged. 

But at the time of the Colby game people were 
awakened to the fact that Bowdoin had a team — 
and a fast one. As one of the Colby authorities put- 
it, "it was one of the fastest articles of foot-ball 
ever put up in Maine." In the other Maine college 
games the scores were not so large. The other 
teams gained more or less of an idea as to what 
kind of a game Bowdoin would put up and in some 
measure prepared themselves to meet it. They could 
not, however, win out a victory, as each time the 
Bowdoin team brought out a few new tactics that 
were sufficient to insure a victory. This was well 
illustrated in the Bates game. Bates had evidently 
laid for the plays that Bowdoin had worked so suc- 
cessfully against Colby and Maine, and met them 
well. But when- Finn was pulled back of the line 
and the plays sent through, fast and furious, they 
could not withstand the onslaught. The team 
work was magnificent and it is pretty certain that 
no team in the State of Maine ever played in the 
form that Bowdoin has this year. There may have 



■ been heavier teams, but none with anything like the 
JH snap that characterized the champion team of 1904. 
I«J The team played nine games during the season — 
lost four and won five. The games won were with 
Fort Preble, Fort McKinley, Colby College, Uni- 
versity of Maine and Bates College. The games lost 
were with Exeter, Harvard, Amherst and Brown. 
The first of these were in the nature of practice 
games, yet in these Bowdoin showed up in fast form 
and gave a definite idea of what the team was to be 
like. The games that were lost were all good ones. 
Bowdoin put up a fight and made an excellent show- 
ing, and but for a little more than her share of 
hard luck, would have made a still better showing 
in some of these contests. 

The largest score rolled up against Bowdoin was 
with Amherst, the score being 23 to o. Against 
Harvard the score was 17 to o, three touchdowns 
being all the big team could pile up against the Bow- 
doin team. The score in the Brown game was 22 to 
0. The Exeter game was played at Brunswick and 
was one of the best games seen here, despite the fact 
that Bowdoin lost. The score was 11 to o in favor 
of Exeter, and it was only by great work that the 
Bowdoin team kept the score as small as it was. 
The Exeter team was made up of far heavier men 
than Bowdoin and they played in fine form. To have 
been beaten by Exeter, this year, was no discredit to 
any college in the country. 

The first important game was played with Colby 
on Whittier Field and resulted in an overwhelming 
victory for Bowdoin by the score 5 2 -a To use a 
former phrase "Colby did not get near enough our 
goal posts to see whether they were made of wood 
or paper." 

The Maine game was played at Orono, and the 
greater part of the student body accompanied the 
team. Bowdoin easily defeated Maine, 22-5, the vic- 
tory being much easier than the score indicates. Our 
team was able to rush the Maine team all over the 
field and to make gains anywhere it pleased. Maine 
made her touchdown by a rally in the last few min- 
utes of play. It was a great victory. 

As the season drew to a close and it began to be 
seen that the real fight for the championship lay 
between Bates and Bowdoin, great interest began to 
center in the game at Brunswick. It is beyond 
doubt that no game ever played in the state 
attracted the amount of attention as did this cham- 
pionship game on the Whittier Field. Everybody 
knew that it would be a great fight and that every 
man would play for all there was in him. And in 
this they were not mistaken. It was a great game 
to watch. Bowdoin, however, showed her supe- 
riority over her opponent in all departments of the 
game, and deserved as great a victory as she won. 
It will probably be a long time before such an inter- 
esting game is seen in Maine. The final score was 
12-6 and Bowdoin secured the long coveted cham- 
pionship at the end of a great season.

BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



Manager White deserves especial praise for the 
efficient way in which he has managed the season. 
We feel sure that no one could have run the team 
with more ability or with greater success than has 
attended Mr. White's administration. 

The captain's position is always a difficult one, 
and to Captain Philoon is due a large measure of 
credit. He has always been conscientious in his 
work and judicious in his management of the team. 

To Coach McClave is especially due the credit 
of this season's work. He imbued into the men that 
"do or die" Princeton spirit which has made the 
team champion of the State. Coach McClave has 
endeared himself in the heart of every candidate 
for the team and it is with the greatest feelings 
of regret that we learn he will not be able to coach 
the team next year. 

And the "scrubs" come in for no small share of 
the credit; they worked faithfully and hard, and 
contributed in no small degree to the success of the 
'varsity. This year's "scrub" was unusually strong, 
giving the 'varsity several hard practice games. 
Among the most prominent men on the second 
eleven are Weld, 'oS, Favinger, '06, Bass ; '07, 
McMichael, '07, Powers, '07, Roberts, '07, Buttrick, 
'07. Thomas, '08, Toole, '08, Pullen, '08, Hopewell, 
'07, Smith,' 07. Fernald, '07, Mitchell, '08, Dolloff, 
Med. '07, Webber, Med. '08. and Osborne '08. 
With such splendid material to draw upon we 
can hope to build up a team that will be able to land 
the championship for the season of 1905.

"KING PEPPER." 
Although the first rehearsal of "King Pepper" 
conflicted seriously with several other events, the 
results were most gratifying to those in charge. 
About forty men showed up, and the opera was run 
through and the songs reahearsed. the play met with 
the approval of the fellows and there is little doubt 
of its success if the same interest is manifested 
throughout. On Monday night there will be a 
rehearsal for the six jockeys and six maids, together 
with the bootblacks. Tuesday evening a full 
rehearsal will be held, and it is hoped that everyone 
will be present. The management especially desires 
thai the attendance at these rehearsals be as large as 
possible in order to save time, labor, and expense. 
Any effort or sacrifice on the part of the students 
will be greatly appreciated. 



FRANKLIN PIERCE. 

Wednesday, November twenty-third, was the 
one-hundredth anniversary of the birth of Franklin 
Pierce, fourteenth President of the United States 
and a graduate of Bowdoin in the Class of 1824. 
It seems only fitting that the college paper of his old 
. lima Mater should make some suitable mention of 
this event in connection with the life of so famous 
a Bowdoin man. 

Pierce was born, November 2, 1804, at Hills- 
borough, New Hampshire, and entered Bowdoin in 
1820. After graduation he studied law and was 
admitted to the bar in his native state in 1827. From 
the first he was a zealous supporter of the Demo- 
cratic party. He commenced his political career by 
being elected to the State Legislature in 1829; he 
was speaker from 1832-33 ; chosen a member of Con- 
gress in the latter year ; and in 1837 became a sena- 
tor of the United States. He resigned his position 
in 1842 in order to return to the practice of law. His 
success as a lawyer was very great. In 1846 he was 
offered the position of attorney-general of the 
United States, but declined it. At the outbreak of 
the Mexican War he joined as a volunteer in one of 
the companies raised in Concord, entering as a pri- 
vate and coming out as a brigadier-general. At the 
close of the war he resigned his commission, having 
shown himself well worthy to wear and able to use 
a soldier's weapon. In 1850 he was president of the 
convention for revising the constitution of New 
Hampshire. In 1852 he was elected President of the 
United States, receiving 254 electoral votes against 
42 given to his opponent, General Scott. During 
his administration he acted strictly according to 



his beliefs and in every way strove to carry out the 
promises he had made. In 1857 he retired to private 
life in Concord. N. H., taking no further active part 
in politics. He died the eighth of October, 1869, at 
the age of sixty-five. 

Due undoubtedly to the heated times in which he 
lived, probably no man who has been at the head of 
this nation's affairs, has ever been more often mis- 
judged and wrongly estimated than Franklin Pierce. 
A Democrat heart and soul, he was from the first 
imbued with the very essence of democracy, and all 
the time that he occupied the President's chair sought 
to follow faithfully the true spirit and teachings of 
his party and to carry out his own convictions and 
the promises he had made before election. He 
possessed unquestioned ability as a public speaker 
and few men could sway an audience with greater 
force than he. Elected to the presidency against 
his own express wish, he tried in every way to act 
according to his conscience. By preference he 
would have led a quiet life, as his retirement from 
Congress, his declining the office of attorney-general, 
and his resignation from the army show. 
Descending from a patriotic race, his father a Rev- 
olutionary hero, he himself was fired with the 
noblest and highest patriotism. 

General Pierce had naturally a strong endow- 
ment of religious feeling. At no period of his life 
were the sacred relations of the human soul a matter 
of indifference to him. 

His college course has probably been often mis- 
represented. For the first two years he gave little 
attention to his work, but when at the beginning of 
Junior year the marks were first announced, and he 
was shown to occupy exactly the lowest position in 
his class, he took a sudden brace, and devoted him- 
self to his books, studying until midnight and rising 
at four in the morning, and from then till his grad- 
uation he received no word of college censure, being 
unavoidably absent from but two college exercises 
for these two years, never entered a class-room 
without a thorough preparation, and finally gradu- 
ated third in bis class. Nothing but his previous 
low mark prevented him from taking a higher place. 
This shows how his stern and continued exercise of 
will redeemed him from indolence and completely 
changed and shaped the whole course of his life. 

That Pierce possessed a mind and true worth is 
attested by the friendship he had with such men and 
thinkers of his college days as Longfellow, Cilley, 
and Hawthorne. Hawthorne and Pierce were the 
strongest friends. Of widely divergent natures and 
tastes, they loved, understood, and believed each 
other. Hawthorne appreciated the quiet masculine 
charm of Pierce's manner, his knowledge of men 
and the world, his strength, and his tenderness. And 
it is a touching tribute to the President, that it was 
he whom Hawthorne chose as a companion when 
he set out on that journey which was to be his last 
to revisit the scenes of his childhoorl and his Alma 
Mater, and it was Pierce alone who was with the 
great author when he died. 

That Pierce has been often misjudged is as true 
as it is regretable. But that he has been rightly 
so is not true, and the time will come when Frank- 
lin Pierce will be correctly estimated as one of the 
ablest, if not one of the noblest men, publicly and 
personally, who have ever obtained the highest honor 
the nation can give.

Foot=Ball Number. 



As announced in the last 



issue of the Orient, we 
make this our foot-ball number, publishing a 
resume of the past season and the statistics of 
the players. We feel that the foot-ball season 
just past is such that warrants us in devoting 
more than the ordinary amount of space to 
this branch of athletics. We hope that in pub- 
lishing these foot-ball statistics we have not 
sacrificed the other branches of activity for 
such has not been our intention. 



Freshman Class 
Meetings. 



It is a recognized fact that 
every new organization, 
upon its first formation, 
should meet rather frequently in order to be 
well established and to exist as a useful organ- 
ization. But the fact seems to have but little 



bearing in the case of the Freshman Class 
meetings, for several times lately when a 
meeting has been called for business more or 
less important, a postponement has been neces- 
sary on account of the small attendance — 
almost non-attendance of its members. Now 
this is a poor kind of class spirit. There is 
no reason why the Freshman Class should 
not be as well organized, so far as its duties 
and abilities go, as any other class. Now, 
Freshmen, is the time for you to form your 
class spirit. Don't wait until Sophomore or 
Junior year, but make this very first year mean 
something to you as a class. 



Memorial Hall 
Floor. 



The time for the college 
assemblies is fast aproach- 
ing, and once more we have 
to consider the place for holding these func- 
tions. What better place could there be for 
the college hops than Memorial Hall? Not 
only is it conveniently located but it is rich with 
associations of the past. It is, indeed, a delight- 
fully pleasant place to spend an evening with 
one's relatives and friends as far as the artistic 
surroundings are concerned, but what of the 
floor? It is certainly not meant for a dance 
floor. One dance across that floor would 
remind the most happy person that in very 
truth the path of life is rough and toilsome. 
We make no mention of those two pitfalls in 
the shape of registers, which beset the path of 
every dancer. It is enough for the present to 
deal with the boards. The registers are 
smooth anyway, and that is more than one 
can say of the floor. It detracts considerably 
from an otherwise pleasant evening to be con- 
stantlv on the lookout for the waves and hil- 
locks which are ever present. The college is 
especially gifted with fine buildings' whose 
interiors prove even better than their exteriors 
promise. This floor makes Memorial the 
exception. No doubt the college has other 
needs — some of them perhaps more practi- 
cal — but just as surely as we need a new gym- 
nasium we need a new floor in Memorial.

foot Ball Captain. 



The election of Henry 



Chapman, as captain of 
next year's foot-ball team, meets with the 
hearty approval of the entire college. Mr. 
Chapman has won the reputation of being one 
of the best halfbacks in the State and it is 
largely to his effective work that our present 
successful season is due. Although we lose 
Captain Philoon, Finn and Sanborn of this 
year's team, we see no reason why next year's 
team shouldn't be as successful. Whatever 
may be the outcome, however, we can assure 
Captain Chapman in advance of the loyal sup- 
port and co-operation of the entire student 
body. 



Those Eggs Again, 



We learn with lament that 



B o w d o i n sympathizers 
have injured the University of Maine. Nay, 
more, they have "added insult to injury." So 
says the Maine Campus. What a lamentable 
state of affairs ! "The University has been 
slandered with obnoxious names ; and other 
things of a petty nature have been perpe- 
trated." You fellows who were hit with 
those eggs at the Maine game should be care- 
ful and not speak of it. It injures the pride 
of our sister University, and is, therefore, 
"misrepresenting and calumnious." We are 
sorry that any of Bowdoin's supporters 
chanced to let fall the fact that they were 
spotted with bad eggs as they marched past 
a Maine chapter house. We are sorry that we 
mentioned that one of our professors and his 
wife were stained with ink thrown from some- 
where within the crowd gathered in front of 
that house. If we had only known that such 
facts, for facts they are, we are sorry to say, — 
so injured and insulted the pride of the insti- 
tution on the banks of the Penobscot, we 
would surely have hushed them up and buried 
them deep in the oblivion where they belong. 
We should have gone to the tailor and had our 
clothes cleaned in humble silence because it 
was calumnious to our sister institution to noise 
abroad the truth. 



But to lay aside levity we tell the Univer- 
sity of Maine these things. Bowdoin students 
do not say that they were injured by Maine 
fellows. We take the Maine men's word for 
the truth and accept their apologies for the 
fact that the affair occurred on the University 
grounds if the outburst of eloquence in the 
last issue of the Campus may be dignified 
with the name of apology. We are satisfied 
with the explanation and desire now to let the 
matter drop. 



Change in 
Planting the Ivy. 



In the northeast corner of 
the campus stands an oak 
tree bearing a bronze tab- 
let with this simple inscription, "The Class of 
1869." The tree planted by the Class of '69, 
throve and grew as was natural to the soil, 
and stands now a magnificent monument to 
the class. It is well known that the ivy vines 
planted on Ivy Day almost invariably pine 
away and die. The soil is not adapted to sup- 
port such vines. Such being the case, why 
would it not be a good idea to change the cus- 
tom of planting vines to one of planting oaks 
or some tree to the growth of which the soil is 
better adapted. It would be a saving of 
energy which is wasted now, and would add 
something stable to a ceremony which is vain 
and empty now. Moreover, the beauty of 
our already beautiful campus would be 
enhanced. 



Prize Essay. 



It is hoped that a large 



number of the under- 
graduates will compete for the prize offered 
by the Society of Colonial Dames of America 
in Maine for the best essay on "Arbitration as 
the Best Means of Settling International Dis- 
putes." While only one can obtain the cov- 
eted prize, the practical knowledge of this 
important subject, which all would acquire in 
preparing such an article, would be of inesti- 
mable value.

FACULTY MEETING. 

By vote of the Faculty the Thanskgiving recess 
extended from 12.30 p.m. Wednesday, to 12.30 p.m. 
Friday. At this meeting it was voted to make all 
Freshman courses four hours each, and all courses 
after Freshman year uniformly three hours. For 
the degree of A.B. it is now required to take four 
courses each of the four years and in addition a fifth 
course during any two semesters after Freshman 
year. 

The new schedule is now made out and will go 
into effect next semester. All members of the 
Freshman Class entering without any conditions in 
history are allowed to elect History 1 and 2 or 3 and 
4 during Freshman year under restriction that each 
case be considered on its merits. 

A new course. Biology 6. will be offered to all 
who have taken Biology 2 and 3. 



SOPHOMORES 11, FRESHMEN o. 

The annual Freshman-Sophomore foot-ball game 
was played Thursday of last week in spite of the 
inclement weather. The game abounded in fumbles, 
punts and "flukes." The Freshmen received the ball 
on the kick-off and were immediately forced to punt. 
Bass made the first touchdown on a quarterback 
run and Redman in the second half ran seventy -five 
yards for the second touchdown.

of his writings. 



The Thursday evening meeting for November 17 
was.-conducted by Newton, '05. The topic "God's 
Demand Upon the Educated Man," was a pertinent 
question to all and was very thoroughly thought out 
both by the leader and his audience. Certainly as 
college men and as men associating with those who 
are to become society's leaders, God requires of us 
a great deal. 

Owing to the fact that Thursday was Thanks- 
giving day, there was no weekly service. 

SUNDAY EVENING SERVICE. 

On Sunday evening. November twentieth was 
held the second in the series of services which the 
Christian Association is to hold in conjunction with 
the college church. The Association was very fort- 
unate in securing as speaker the Rev. John C. Per- 
kins, pastor of the First Parish Church in Portland. 
The subject, "Christian Citizenship," was one which 
was especially pertinent for the occasion. It was 
an able address and helpful to all. Romilly John- 
son, '06, rendered a solo during the service which 
was as usual very heartily appreciated. 



THE COLLEGE LIFE. 

Rev. Mr. Jump in a recent sermon said: 
The real birthday of many a young man is the 
day when he begins his college course. The home 
life was a life of protected imitation. Patterns to 
be followed existed all around him, but loving parents 
had for the most part chosen these patterns or 
themselves provided them, so the danger of going 
wrong was comparatively small. The college life, 
on the other hand, is a life of liberty. Good pat- 
terns and bad patterns are chums in the dormitory, 
and the Freshman on the floor above has to choose 
which kind of pattern he will follow. Once having 
learned the art of choosing he is inconceivably more 
of a soul than whc 1 he came innocently virtuous to 
college. The campus is swept by a different intel- 
lectual atmosphere from that which filled the home 
and the church and the Sunday-school room back in 
the country village. It would be a pity if this were 
not true. But because it is true the college man has 
to be ever a sentry on guard, rather a soldier mov- 
ing forward in the ranks ; not a creature of cir- 
cumstances but their king, not the prey of doubts but 
their conqueror, a vital, struggling, growing man, 
the human block from which God will carve a mar- 
tial angel. 



FOOT-BALL CAPTAIN. 

At a recent meeting of all the foot-ball men who 
made their "B" this year, Henry P. Chapman, '06, 
was unanimously elected captain for the ensuing 
year. Captain Chapman prepared for college at the 
Portland High School where he became conspicu- 
ous in foot-ball. He made the 'varsity Freshman 
year and has played on the team ever since. His 
regular position is halfback, although he played full 
back in several games. He is 20 years old, weighs 
157 pounds, and is 5 feet 8 inches tall.

LIBRARY BOOKS RECENTLY ADDED. 



(LoiicQC IRotes. 



Gasquet, Abbot. English fionastic Life. 

This volume, while based on the results of care- 
ful research, aims to be a popular presentation of 
monastic life. There is a detailed description of a 
monastery and of the daily life within one. The 
book is fully illustrated and a series of maps give the 
location of the monasteries of the different orders. 
(271 : G21) 

Dexter, E. G. A History of Education in the 
United States. 

An exhaustive history of education in this 
country. The book is limited to a history of the 
subject and makes no attempt to discuss the philos- 
ophy or the trend of education. It traces the devel- 
opment of ( 1 ) the public schools, from their begin- 
nings in the colonies to their organization at the 
present time, (2) higher and special education, and 
(3) the methods of educational extension, including 
among its agencies libraries, newspapers, cor- 
respondence and evening schools, popular lectures 
and museums. The book is rich in tabular and sta- 
tistical matter. (370.9:052) 

Morris, J. 1*1. Joseph Chamberlain. 

This book is not recent enough to include some 
of Mr. Chamberlain's later political history, but it 
is, nevertheless, an extended and important account 
of by far the greater portion of his career. Almost 
all the biographical material which had been pub- 
lished before the appearance of this volume, dealt 
almost exclusively with the political life of Mr. 
Chamberlain. He has, however, an interesting per- 
sonality and this volume is concerned quite as much 
with the man as with the statesman. It deals at 
length with his busy political career, but it shows 
him also in the intervals of his public life, in Lon- 
don, in America and at his home in Birmingham. 
(B:C 3 6sa) 

Peat, A. B. N. Gossip from Paris During the 
Second Empire. 

A volume of letters, selected as the best from 
nine large volumes which are wholly concerned 
with the social and political life of Paris between the 
years 1864 and l86g. The author had unusual 
opportunities to gather and to publish news, for 
while he was connected with the Ministry of the 
Interior he was the Paris correspondent of the 
Morning Star, a daily paper of London. The cor- 
respondence is written in the informal and personal 
spirit of private letters and it is made up of ran- 
dom comments on the significant things in the his- 
tory, art, music and literature of the period. 944.- 
07:P32) 

Harte, Bret. Trent's Trust. 

A collection of stories representing the last work 
of Bret Harte. The first story, somewhat longer 
than any of the others, gives the book its title. 
They introduce the same surroundings and the 
same characters even that appear in his earlier Cal- 
ifornia stories. (813.45 : T) 



Harvey L. Winslow, '06, was in Boston last Sat- 
urday and Sunday. 

Last week practically marked the close of the 
regular foot-ball season. 

At a recent faculty meeting Dr. Burnett was 
appointed Assistant-Registrar. 

A cut of the Theta Delta Chi chapter house 
appeared in last Sunday's Gfobc. 

The Hubbard grand-stand has at last been 
entirely enclosed for the winter. 

Bates loses by graduation two men from her 
foot-ball team. Reed and Turner. 

Small. '97, has been on the campus the past week 
in the interest of Success Magazine. 

"Joe" Pendleton. '91, refereeel the Brown-Dart- 
mouth foot-ball game last Saturday. 

A sample of the 1905 calendar is upon exhibition 
and proves to be a very pretty souvenir. 

Gunning and skating expeditions are among the 
amusements of some of the fellows these days. 

William B. Webb is in Chicago in attendance at 
the national convention of the D. K. E. fraternity. 

The Brunswick Record says: "The town shared 
the joy of the college in the great foot-ball victory." 

Manager Putnam has nearly completed his base- 
ball schedule and will announce it in a short time. 

Professor Chapman will deliver a course of 
lectures on "Modern Poets" in Portland this winter. 

A large number of the fellows took in the Port- 
land-Lewiston foot-ball game in Lewiston, last Sat- 
urday. 

Professor Houghton delivered a lecture on "The 
Japanese" last Wednesday night at the Congrega- 
tional vestry. 

Professor McRea will attend the meeting of the 
American Economic Association during the Christ- 
mas holidays. 

A picture of Captain Philoon of the foot-ball team 
appeared in last week's issue of the Record, which 
characterizes him as "the best all-round player in. 
Maine." 

Bennett, who played right tackle on Maine this 
year, has been elected captain of the 1905 eleven, 
and Kendall has been elected captain of the Bates 
eleven. 

Mikelsky, '05, was in Boston last week on a short 
business trip. He looked over the latest styles in 
college men's togs and purchased a line of the latest 
winter overcoats. 

If Captain Kendall shows the same judgment in 
picking out the Bates team next fall, as he has in 
selecting an All-Maine team, it will be safe to say 
that the Bates team will be weak. 

Rev. Mr. Jump was tendered a reception by the 
Women's Alliance of the First Congregational 
Church last week at the residence of Hartley C. 
Baxter. The musical program consisted of vocal 
solos by Mrs. Roberts who was accompanied by Dr. 
Burnett, and piano solos by Romily Johnson, '06.

BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



Wiley O. Newman, '07, has been elected captain 
of the Colby foot-ball team for 1905. 

At a special initiation held Tuesday evening, 
Henry Hopewell, '07, was made a member of the 
Alpha Delta Phi fraternity. 

The college has adopted a new and uniform 
basis of numerical values for the letters A, B, C, D 
of the ranking system. A equals 9-10, B equals 
8-9, C equals 7-8, D equals 6-7. 

"Reggie" Brown, who has refereed several of the 
Maine games, has been coaching the Harvard sec- 
ond eleven this season and for his services recently 
received a handsome loving cup from his friends. 

By mistake in the list of Faculty office hours pub- 
lished in the Orient recently. Professor Houghton's 
conference hours were printed as being at 
Memorial Hall; they are at his home on Maine 
Street. 

In connection with the article in this issue on 
Franklin Pierce, it is interesting to note that he 
graduated in the Class of 1824, and was not, as has 
been so often erroneously reported, a member of the 
famous Class of 1825. 

The opera "H. M. S. Pinafore" is to be given by 
the Brunswick and Topsham Choral Society some 
time in January, under the auspices of Mr. How- 
ard C. Raton, whose leadership has marked success 
in this line in other places. 

The first rehearsals of "King Pepper" were held 
in Banister Hall Monday afternoon and Tuesday 
evening. Judging by the enthusiasm with which the 
sixty odd men entered into their parts, the opera 
will be a complete success. 

The Brunswick Club of Bowdoin College held its 
meeting last Saturday night, which seems to be the 
favorite time for meetings of the sectional clubs. 
This club is in a very promising condition and bids 
fair to be one of the leaders of the organizations of 
this sort. 

The Library Club was entertained at its third 
meeting on November 18 by Mr. Wilder. Professor 
Johnson was the guest of the evening and he gave 
an interesting talk on "French Periodicals." 
Refreshments were served and an informal discus- 
sion followed. 

The second meeting of the Deutscher Verein 
was held at New Meadows Inn last Thursday even- 
ing. No business of any importance was transacted 
and the meeting was brought to a close by the 
singing of Cerman songs. Herms, '04, will address 
the next meeting. 

It is interesting to count the different scores of 
the several Maine teams in the state games. Bow- 
doin has scored during the season 86 points against 
her opponents II, Bates 35 to her opponents 12, 
Colby 12 to her opponents 86, and U. of M. 16 to 
her opponents 40. 

The Chicago Maroon in commenting upon the 
recent Chicago-Michigan foot-ball game, which was 
rfon by the latter team by the score 22-12, says that 
three of Chicago's men were the victims of Carter, 
the Michigan tackle. It was a slugging game 
throughout. Carter, it will be remembered, was 
assistant coach of the Bowdoin team last year. He 
is not only one of the heaviest men on the Michigan 
eleven, but one of the speediest on his feet. 



Lord Hall, the new building at the University 
of Maine, was dedicated Tuesday, with appropri- 
ate ceremonies. The delivery of the building to the 
State was made by Mr. Henry Lord; the Address 
of Acceptance, by Gov. Hill ; the Entrusting of the 
Keys, by Senator Hale, honorary '69, and the ded- 
icatory address by Hon. W. T. Cobb, 'yy. 

In rummaging around at the State House, 
recently, some one came across the very first bill 
passed by a Maine Legislature. The bill was passed 
June 7, 1820, and the endorsement bore the names 
of John Chandler, president of the Senate, and Benj. 
Ames, speaker of the House. Mr. Chandler was 
trustee of the college from 1821-38, and Mr. Ames 
was an overseer from 1818-28. 

Nickerson Bros, made a good haul when they 
secured the whale at Pennellville. They are plan- 
ning, to tour the State with it. It has been on 
exhibition in town for the last few days. After 
their return they will try out the oil from the blub- 
ber. The animal is known as a whale killer and 
in schools of three or four they attack large 
whales. They are the wolves of the ocean. 

The Massachusetts Club held an enthusiastic 
meeting Saturday night with Jenks, '06. Various 
means were discussed for getting Massachusetts 
sub-Freshmen interested in Bowdoin. Wilson, '06, 
was elected the club correspondent for the Boston 
Transcript and he will have a letter in every Satur- 
day night. A petition was drawn up and signed by 
all the members urging the Faculty to grant the Fri- 
day following Thanksgiving as a holiday. After 
the business meeting refreshments were served and 
singing was indulged in until a late hour. 

According to the usual custom the Freshmen 
"sprung" their yell for the first time at the station 
Wednesday morning. The Sophomores were at a 
premium and consequently the Freshmen had full 
sway. Their yell is as follows: 

Rickerty ax, koax, koax. 
Rickerty ax, koax, koax, 
Allegaro, garo, garate, 
Bowdoin, Bowdoin, 1908.

MASS-MEETING. 



A mass-meeting was held in Memorial Hall last 
Wednesday evening at which the majority of the 
students were conspicuous by their absence. James 
W. Sewall. '06. was elected manager of the foot- 
ball team for the ensuing year, and Neal W. Allen, 
'07, assistant manager. It was voted to send a let- 
ter of thanks to E. A. Dunlap, '03, for his services 
as assistant coach of the foot-ball team, also one 
to the Bangor alumni for their loyal entertainment 
of the team after the Maine game. The following- 
proposed amendments to the constitution of the 



Athletic Council were voted. These have been 
adopted by the Alumni Association and if adopted 
by the Faculty will go into effect. 

Article V. to be amended by the addition to Sec- 
ton 2 of the following : 

It shall further be the duty of this body to elect 
two of its members as auditors who shall examine 
the financial condition of each branch of athletics 
from time to time as the Council may direct and 
audit the final accounts of managers at the end of 
each season, the accounts of the Treasurer at the 
end of the college year also. 

Section 5 of the same article to be amended so 
as to read as follows : It shall be the duty of this 
body to publish over the signatures of its auditors 
in the last issue of the Orient of the term in which 
any athletic season closes, a statement of the finan- 
cial condition of such athletic department, and in 
the commencement number of the Orient, the 
report of the Treasurer. 

Article VI. to be amended by the omission of 
the sentence beginning, "It shall further be the 
duty of the Chairman " 

Article VII. to be amended by the addition of 
Section 2 as follows : 

This constitution may be amended at any regu- 
larly constituted meeting of each of the three parties 
concerned, by a two-thirds vote of the members 
present. 

Notice of a proposed amendment must be given 
in at least two issues of the Orient during the col- 
lege year in which the amendment is to be voted 
upon. 



CELEBRATION POSTERS. 

A new idea has been originated this year in 
posters in recognition of the championship foot-ball 
team of 1904. They are gotten out by Robinson 
and Ellis. '08. and were made up and printed at the 
printing office in the Science Building. They are 
simple, but very neat, showing a cut of the new 
grand-stand and giving the scores for the Maine 
foot-ball series ; printed in black and white about 
fourteen by eleven inches. Every fellow will want 
one in his room. They sell for fifteen cents each. 



INTERSECTION DEBATE. 

On Tuesday, November 29, at seven o'clock, will 
be held the first Intersection Debate. The debate 
will be open to visitors. The question is: 
Resolved, That for the State of Maine, a System of 
High License is Preferable to the Present Prohibi- 
tory Law. Section A, with Childs and Perry as 
leaders, will support the affirmative ; Section B, with 
Peterson and Boody as leaders, will support the 
negative. The judges will be Professor Mitchell, 
Dr. Burnett and Mr. Foster. 



NEW PRIZE OFFER. 

The Society of Colonial Dames of America in 
Maine offer the prize of $20 for the years 1904-5, in 
honor of Mrs. Henry Moulton of Portland, on the 
subject of "Arbitration as the Best Means of Set- 
tling International Disputes." The competition is 
open to all Seniors, Juniors and Sophomores.

THE FESTIVAL CHORUS. 

A great chance is being presented by Mr. W. R. 
Chapman's choruses for people to become acquainted 
with the very best music. The Brunswick and 
Topsham Choral Society will be very glad to wel- 
come among its members any students who wish to 
join. This year the chorus will sing Wagner's 
opera. Lohengrin, the Oratorio of Creation, and a 
collection of four part songs. The music is very 
melodious and tuneful. The chorus is conducted 
under the final leadership of Mr. Mower of Lewis- 
ton. The meetings are held every Thursday even- 
ing at half-past seven in the Court Room in the 
Town Building. 



"GYM." WORK. 

It has been generally stated that gvm. work was 
to begin immediately after Thanksgiving, but the 
date has now been changed by Dr. Whittier to 
December 5. The running track is being put in 
condition and by the fifth everything will be in 
readiness for work. 



Hlumni personals. 



CLASSES OF 1820 AND 1896. 
The "Provisional Trustees of Fewacres" are 
endeavoring to secure the purchase, restoration and 
maintenance of "Fewacres" at Farmington, as a 
memorial of Jacob Abbott. '20. Many contribu- 
tions to the fund have already been made. Carle- 
ton P. Merrill, ex-'96, is chairman of the Provis- 
ional Board. 

CLASS OF 1864. 
The Maine Society of New York held its 
second annual dinner at the Hotel Manhattan last 
Friday night, with President James McKeen as 
toast-master. There were many Bowdoin men pres- 
ent. Mr. McKeen was born in Brunswick, Decem- 
ber 5, 1841. and received the degree of LL.D. from 
Bowdoin in 1900. He has been an overseer since 
1886. He lives in Brookline and is interested in 
many political and social institutions. His grand- 
father was the first president of Bowdoin College, 
having served in that capacity from 1802-7. 

CLASS OF 1865. 

About a year and a half ago Congress appro- 
priated about $1,000,000 to reimburse the state of 
Massachusetts for expenses incurred in fitting out 
troops during the Civil War. Previously the state 
authorities had entered into a contract with Hon. 
John B. Cotton, assistant attorney-general. Wash- 
ington. D. C, to act as state agent in looking after 
the claim and agreed to allow him 10 per cent, of 
the amount received. The attorney now holds the 
warrant and refuses to turn it over to the State until 
his fee of $160 000 is paid. This matter is creating 
considerable talk in Washington and Massachusetts 
and it will be interesting to know what the final 
decision will be. We feel that Mr. Cotton is in the 
right. 



CLASS OF 1877. 
Lieutenant Peary has made a very generous 
donation to the E. M. C. Seminary at Bucksport in 
the form of blocks of wood from the keel of his 
Arctic steamship being built at Verona which are 
to be made into souvenirs with a picture of the ship, 
the captain, the builder, and Lieutenant Peary, and 
to be sold for the benefit of the school. 

CLASS OF 1881. 
William Henry Goddard, after engaging in 
mercantile pursuits in Boston for 20 years, has 
entered the ministry and is now rector of the 
Church of the Ascension in Wakefield, R. I. 

MEDICAL. '84. '96 AND '98. 
At the annual meeting of the Penobscot Medical 
Association held at the Bangor House last week. 
Dr. Hiram Hunt, M. '84, was elected president, and 
Dr. B. L. Bryant, '95. M. '98, was re-elected secretary 
and treasurer. A paper on "Medical Ethics" was 
read by Dr. Addison S. Thayer. M. '86, of Portland. 

CLASS OF 1893. 

Mr. Reginald R. Goodwell is Professor of the 
Romance Languages at the new Simmons College, 
Boston. 

CLASS OF 1S94. 

The Boston Globe of recent date gives a long 
sketch of Rev. Norman McKinnon of Augusta, 
relating" to his handiness with carving tools. Mr. 
McKinnon is a very skillful workman in the line of 
word-carving and many of his house furnishings tes- 
tify to his handicraft. 

CLASS OF 1903. 
In a long newspaper article and description of 
the Kent's Hill foot-ball team for 1904. which claims 
the State championship, it says, "The team was 
coached by Eddie Dunlap ('03), and the men 
improved wonderfully under his handling."

VOL. XXXIV. 



NO. 18. 



EXTRACT FROM REV. MR. JUMP'S ADDRESS 



THE CONSECRATION OF VERSATILITY, 
CYRUS HAMLIN, '34. 

Cyrus Hamlin was born in Waterford, Me., in 
the year of 181 1. While yet a lad he manifested his 
pluck and inventiveness and withal his religious- 
ness, traits never to desert him. When he first saw 
the light it was declared by the good friends of the 
family, "his head is too big, he can never be brought 
up alive." But he was brought up, and early showed 
that his bigness of head was to his advantage rather 
than his disadvantage. He was an adept in all 
mechanical lines. Practically every tool and article 
used on the farm was made by him before he grew 
to manhood. Enjoying only a poor fitting course, 
he presented himself for examination at Bowdoin in 
the fall of '30. Especially did he fear his inability 
to pass the entrance examination in Cicero, so as he 
reviewed, chancing to notice a page containing many 
difficult sentences, he prepared that page with unus- 
ual care. The passage assigned to him for his test 
was the one page of Cicero with which he was per- 
fectly familiar. "I knew," he writes, "that I ought 
to tell the professor that this was the only page I 
could translate that way, but I didn't." 

A revival of great power took place while Ham- 
lin was in college and perhaps had some part in 
stirring up a missionary interest which ultimately 
sent Munson and Lyman and Hamlin into the for- 
eign field. On the mechanical rather than the 
material side of his college course Hamlin's steam 
engine is worth recording. Professor Smyth in the 
course of a lecture mentioned that but few steam 
engines then existed and that probably most of 
the students had never seen one. Hamlin imme- 
diately offered to make one, not only that would 
go, but that would enable a spectator to see it go. 
At the end of three months he was able to exhibit 
the first steam engine ever made in Maine. That 
same engine is now to be seen in the Cleaveland 
Cabinet of the college in Massachusetts Hall. 

Having thus exercised his mind and activity 
along numerous lines, he received appointment to 
the mission of the American Board in Constanti- 
nople. His life gospel was always "keep to work, 
if cut off from one thing take the next." With 
these principles he began his labors in the Eastern 
field, labors whose fruitful achievements have been 
but seldom paralleled in missionary annals. 
Brave associates were at his side as teachers, and 
brave men were needed. 

Consecrating his versatility to his Mjaster, 
Hamlin, of course, sought before long some outlet 
for his mechanical ability. So he fitted up a work- 
shop and began to manufacture tools and apparatus, 
thus saving money for the mission and giving indus- 
trial education as well to his pupils. For the glory 



of God and the training of their own souls, some of 
the students made stove-pipes, others manufactured 
rat traps, others bound books, and still others created 
a something which was for women's head gear. 

Another work with which Dr. Hamlin's name is 
forever joined, was the founding of Robert Col- 
lege, an American institution for general Christian 
learning, located at Constantinople. In co-operation 
with Christopher Robert of New York, who gave 
$30,000 at the outset, Dr. Hamlin initiated this noble 
undertaking. The college yet remains a monument 
to Dr. Hamlin's faith and courage, a shedder of light 
in one of the earth's darkest places. 

Returning to America, Dr. Hamlin rounded out 
his career to a ripe old age by several years of 
teaching at Bangor Seminary and by other years as 
President of Middlebury College, Vermont. His 
volumes, "Among the Turks" and "My Life and 
Times," abound in humorous and anecdotal interest 
and portray a soldier of the Cross fearless in battle, 
patient on the march, uncomplaining in bivouac, 
"filling out the suffering of the Master," and inspir- 
ing by his example all that is noblest and most heroic 
in our American hearts. 



REVIEW OF THE NOVEMBER QUILL. 

The November Quill, taken as a whole, is neither 
very good, nor yet very bad. There are some feat- 
ures about it that are excellent, and on the other 
hand, some things distinctly below literary par. Of 
the prose, "Grandfather's Story" is probably the 
best. The poetry is all very good, "The Coming of 
the Storm" and "At Eventide" competing closely 
for first place. We notice with pleasure a 
return of the Silhouettes, which are a distinctive 
work of every good issue of the Quill. The Goose 
Tracks are rather pert, but not too much so. Satire 
and humor should, surely, find a place in college lit- 
erature. Ye Postman is probably the weak part of 
this month's issue. Why five pages are devoted to 
not very excellent verse clipped from other college 
magazines, relating to such things as a surgical oper- 
ation upon the epidermis of a pirate, is beyond the 
critic's ken. At least three of these pages might 
profitably have been devoted to some original arti- 
cle. Turning to more specific criticisms. "The 
Thoughtful Murderer" is distinctly weak. One of 
the essentials — the foremost essential — of a myste- 
rious plot, is to clear up the mystery finally. Does 
any reader of the Quill know how the murderer 
escaped from prison, how he returned, or when, 
without detection, he obtained the wonderful meg- 
aphone ? 

"The Coming of the Storm" is musical, vivid 
and real, an excellent bit of verse. 

"A Pipe on the River" is a rather commonplace 
story. Jack was not a modern college man, else he 
could not have taken that wonderful brace his

Senior year. A Senior's life is rather too strenuous 
these days. 

"Faith" is a beautiful little poem betraying ten- 
derness, pathos, love and trust. 

"Grandfather's Story" is a very good little arti- 
cle. Reality and style abound all through it. 

"At Eventide" shows a depth of feeling and 
thought seldom attained by college writers. The 
thought, too, is clothed in beautiful imagery. 



Communication. 



DELTA KAPPA EPSILON CONVENTION. 

The fifty-eighth Annual Convention of the Delta 
Kappa Epsilon fraternity was held at Chicago from 
the 1 6th to the 19th of November under the auspices 
of the Northwestern Alumni Association and the 
Delta Delta chapter of Chicago University. The 
headquarters of the convention were at the Audi- 
torium Hotel. The meeting opened with a smoker 
Wednesday evening. All of Thursday, and Friday 
forenoon were given up to business. Thursday 
noon a picture was taken on the steps of the Art 
Institute on Michigan Avenue. Thursday evening 
a reception and ball was given at the hotel. On Fri- 
day afternoon a Tally-Ho trip was taken to the 
University and to Delta Delta chapter's new home. 
Friday evening a banquet was held. Saturday was 
spent in sight-seeing and in attending the foot-ball 
game at the university. The guest of honor was 
Lieutenant Robert E. Peary, Bowdoin. '7J. Wil- 
liam B. Webb acted as delegate from Theta Chap- 



BEQUEST FOR THE COLLEGE. 

By a recent decision of the United States 
Supreme Court, Bowdoin will receive a bequest 
from the Fayerweather will case. The case involves 
a bequest by the late D. G. Fayerweather, a leather 
merchant of New York, who died in 1890. The will 
was contested by Mr. Fayerweather's widow and two 
nieces, fraud being charged. The case has long 
been pending in the courts and has been before the 
Supreme Courts on several occasions. 

The beneficiary colleges are Bowdoin, Dartmouth, 
Williams. Amherst, Wesleyan, Yale, Columbia, 
Union Theological, Hamilton, Rochester, Cornell. 
Lafayette, Lincoln. Virginia, Hampton, Maryville. 
Marietta Adelbert, Wabash and Park. 



BOWDOIN CATALOGUE. 

The Bowdoin catalogue for this college year will 
soon be out. Now if any man knows of a prep, 
school man who is at all interested in Bowdoin, or 
likely to be made interested, do not fail to send him 
a catalogue. Here is one line of work all mapped 
out for the sectional clubs and it is to be hoped that 
they will take advantage of it. 



RALLY COMMITTEE. 

The committee appointed to take charge of the 
College Rally which will be held before long is as 
follows: W. F. Finn, Chairman; Lewis, 1905; Weld, 
1905; Henderson, 1905; Favinger, 1906; Webber, 
1906; Stevens, 1906; Allen, 1907; Bass, 1907. 



To the Orient: 

Before the echoes of that Bowdoin-Bates 
12 to 6 ever-to-be-remembered-by-those-who- 
saw-it game die away, permit an alumnus to 
point a moral. The enthusiasm and the Bow- 
doin spirit that was generated at that game is 
an asset the value of which should not be 
overlooked when another foot-ball season 
comes around. It is a great thing for the 
col'ege when the alumni get their throats to 
work. 1 am quite sure that the croyvd on the 
grand stand had something to do with winning 
that game. Our blood was stirred by the 
sight ; the struggle was good to look upon, and 
while our red corpuscles chased each other, 
the very natural result was a new loyalty for 
Alma Mater. That kind of loyalty may not 
be of the highest order ; it may not be the per- 
fect ideal upon which a man should base his 
love for Bowdoin — but it is the kind that plays 
verv conspicuously not only in the athletic suc- 
cesses of Yale and Dartmouth, but also in 
that college spirit out of which such successes 
grow. And — strange confession — one cannot 
help feeling that the frenzied efforts of the 
leaders of the cheering had much to do with 
the enthusiasm of the crowd. Even so. The 
means are not to be objected to so long as the 
end was so gloriously achieved. These points 
mav be worth pondering between now and the 
games next fall. 

Yours fraternally, 

Geo C. DeMott, 

Bozvdoin, 1894.

DEBATING NOTES. 

At the first Intersection Debate held last Tues- 
day evening, Section A supported the affirmative 
and Section B the negative of the question favoring 
High License for the State of Maine. For the 
affirmative, Childs and Boody were leaders, and 
Clark, dishing, Riley and Emery spoke from the 
floor ; for the negative, Peterson and Boody were 
leaders, and Fernald, Andrews, Hall, Pierce and 
Cleaves spoke from the floor. The judges, Profes- 
sor Mitchell, Dr. Burnett and Mr. Foster, gave the 
decision in favor of the negative as upheld by Sec- 
tion B. 

The whole debate was characterized by careful 
analysis, concreteness, and the use of many good 
authorities. There was a happy lack of that unsup- 
ported assertion which frequently forms the sum 
and substance of talk on the Prohibition question. 
The case for the affirmative was better planned than 
that for the negative, but the latter execelled in per- 
suasion. In this respect the work of Peterson was 
especially effective, although his closing speech was 
not an adequate summary of the Section B argu- 
ment. 

This debate furnished several illustrations of the 
danger of injudicious phrasing concerning such 
questions ; several of the speakers unwittingly con- 
noted humorous ideas at the expense of effectiveness 
in argument. 

Next week the debate of Section A. December 5, 
will be on the question : "Resolved, That in Munici- 
pal Elections there should be a Property Qualifica- 
tion not exceeding $500." Affirmative, Norton and 
Damren ; negative. Wing and Redman. 

The debate of Section B, on December 6, will be 
the proposition: United States Senators Should be 
Elected by Popular Vote. Affirmative, Harvey, 
Hatch and Andrews; negative. Cleaves, Bartlett and 
Erskine. 

The first Intersection Debate concluded the 
debates of the first series. 

The time on the Revised Forensics has been 
extended to December 22.

PRESIDENT HYDE AT MINNEAPOLIS. 

During his recent trip through the Middle West 
President Hyde stopped at Minneapolis as the guest 
of former Senator W. D. Washburn, '54. Senator 
Washburn gave a dinner in honor of President Hyde 
at which twenty plates were laid. The Minneapolis 
alumni present included Dean William D. Pattee, '71. 
of the University of Minnesota, J. O. P. Wheel- 
right, '81, and M. H. Boutelle, '87. President 
Hyde has been very successful on his trip in quest 
of an additional $500,000 endowment for the college. 



"KING PEPPER." 

Two very successful rehearsals of the opera, 
"King Pepper," have been held this week. The 
students have taken hold of the work in a very 
gratifying manner and its continuation will mean 
a "big hit" when it is presented. The date will be 
about the middle of January. At the next faculty 
meeting it will be decided whether the production 
can be put on at Lewiston and Augusta. 



Welling, J. C. Addresses, Lectures and Other 
Papers. 

Mr. Welling died in 1894 but his work was 
thought to possess interest, important and perma- 
nent enough to justify collecting and publishing 
these addresses in book form, at this time. A long 
career as an educator gave him unusual opportunities 
for study and research. The papers deal with topics 
in international law, education and American history. 
(904: W46) 

Dawson, T. C. The South American Republics. 

This volume appears in the "Story of the 
Nations" series, which already contains histories of 
most of the leading countries of the world. This 
volume deals with Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay 
and Brazil. A second part will follow and this will 
treat of the remaining South American nations. 
The story of each country is given separately, but 
wherever the history is common to two or more 
nations, as in the case of adjacent countries, a 
detailed account is given only in the case of the 
larger and more important nations. This book 
brings the history up to a recent date. (980:032) 

Rennert, H. A. Life of Lope de Vega. 

In the preparation of this life of Lope de Vega, 
the first to appear in English since 1807, the author 
has had access to Spanish sources and to the best 
biographical and critical material in Spanish. The 
volume deals fully with the personal life of Lope 
de Vega and is supplemented by an exhaustive list 
of his works, made available for use by Mr. Ren- 
nert, through the generosity of another student of 
Spanish literature. (862.31:62) 

Pauli, Ciaston. Gainsborough. 

This sketch, besides containing an account of the 
life of Gainsborough, includes many reproductions 
of his noted paintings. The volume is published in 
the series known as the "Kunstler-Monographier," 
a German publication, 'each number of which is pro- 
fusely illustrated. (750: K 71) 

Harte, Bret. Openings in the Old Trail. 

A collection of some of the later stories of Bret 
Harte. The title indicates the return to the set- 
tings and characters of his earlier tales. These 
stories were written while the author was living in 
London, but they lose none of their interest on 
account of this separation from the region and 
people he describes. (813.49: U)

Ice Hockey. 



This year arrangements 
are being made at Bow- 
doin for the participation in a sport hitherto 
untried in any of the Maine colleges — that of 
ice hockey. Thanks to the idea and hustle of 
Dr. Whittier a large rink is being built on the 
athletic field that will give an excellent oppor- 
tunity for this winter exercise. Nothing 
official has been done as yet about forming a 
representative college team, and this matter 
will be left entirely with the student body. 
Bowdoin may feel justly proud in being the 
originator of this idea in Maine, and the 
Orient is sure that every college man appre- 
ciates and is grateful for the efforts that have 
been made to make this scheme practical and 
that every undergraduate unites with the 
Orient in thanking our athletic director for 



his thoughtfulness and for the labor that he 
has undergone in making this affair a success. 



Library 
Periodicals. 



Although we understand 
that the Library force has 
all that it can attend to, 
and does its work with efficiency, yet we 
believe there is one thing, which, if brought to 
their notice, might be bettered. That is the 
system of having the magazines bound. At 
present, it seems, the magazines of one year, 
are sent to Portland for binding, during the 
last month or so, of the following year. These 
books are gone from one to three months. 
This necessitates a lack of up-to-date maga- 
zines during the latter part of fall and the 
early part of winter terms, — just the time 
when men are settling down — to good, faith- 
ful endeavors on their work. These maga- 
zines are usually needed, just at this time, for 
debates and work in other courses. It seems 
as if the magazines might be bound during the 
summer vacation, thus inconveniencing no one 
in liis regular college work. If the present 
system is absolutely necessary, there ought to 
be some vvav, at least, of having them bound 
and returned sooner than at present. 



The Relay Team. 



Now that foot-ball is over 



for the year it is time that 
we turn our attention to the development of a 
fast re'.ay team which we must have this winter. 
The outdoor board track has been placed in 
position and is in readiness for use. A new 
corner has been constructed for the first turn, 
and the track generally repaired, so that now 
it is in fine condition. The training will 
begin in a few days, and it is earnestly hoped 
that a large number of men will be out. We 
had a winning team last year and we must 
have a winning team this year. There is no 
reason why we should not, for we certainly 
have plenty of good material in college. It is 
especially desired that as many of the Fresh- 
men as possible, enter this work, as it is from 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



W 



this class in particular that new men must be 
developed. A notice will be posted within a 
short time announcing" the beginning of track 
work. 



In another column, an arti- 
Maine College , .,. . , 

Meet cle appears outlining the 

plan of the Portland 
Athletic Club for arranging an intercollegiate 
indoor meet at the Auditorium in Portland. 
The idea seems feasible and the won- 
der is that it has not been attempted before. 
The plan followed, probably, would be very 
similar to the B. A. A. games. Bowdoin, it 
seems, should enter heartily into such a con- 
test and if not victor would still make a very 
creditable showing. The other colleges, too, 
would make a good showing in this, for it is 
not by any means the men who win on the 
track, that always win indoor events. The 
outcome of the meet would be doubtful mak- 
ing it all the more entertaining. There seems 
to be no serious objection to such a thing and 
we sincerely hope the Portland Athletic Club 
will carry out the plan, thereby giving some 
interest to the winter term which has hitherto 
been rather dull, except for the exacting 
monotony of club routine. Furthermore, it 
would prove an excellent preliminary for 
preparations for the B. A. A. relay team. 



College Rally. 



Every student who 
attended the college rally 
held in the gymnasium last March needs not 
to be reminded of that pleasant affair. The 
singing, the cheering, the speeches, and 
withal the true spirit of that evening we all 
remember well ; and the undergraduates are 
universally glad to hear that a similar evening 
is to be held this year. It fills a need and 
accomplishes a good purpose. This rally 
night is essentially a Bowdoin night. The 
thought then is not of class, fraternity, or club, 
but of the college; and the spirit of old Bow- 
doin, the fraternal spirit of college brother- 
hood, is uppermost in our hearts, as it ever 



should be. All success to the Bowdoin Col- 
lege Rally of 1905 ! 



Our Advertisers. 



We would call the atten- 



tion of our readers to a 
portion of the Orient to which perhaps they 
have not given the attention it justly merits, — 
the advertising department. This portion of 
a paper is as essential to its success as any 
other department. On it the paper depends 
largely, not only for its financial support, but 
also for its general quality and success. We 
would heartily recommend a perusal of their 
"ads" and would ask that whenever possible 
our advertisers may at least be given an equal 
opportunity with others. 



An Inter=Club 
Visiting Day. 



One of the great advan- 
tages of a small college is 
the opportunity it affords 
each student to know and know well every 
fellow-student. We have at Bowdoin the 
small college, but to the outside observer the 
student body seems divided into nine seclusive 
club worlds, eight fraternity clubs and one 
non-fraternity, which seriously narrows the 
intimacy among the students. This aspect has 
become more noticeable with the introduction 
of the chapter house system. Men have been 
rapidly leaving the college halls on the cam- 
pus for the seclusive chapter house life. By 
this movement each student has felt a grad- 
ual decrease in the number of his college 
acquaintances, owing to graduation and the 
difficulty of making new acquaintances under 
the seclusive chapter house regime. Freshmen 
are backward about recognizing upper class- 
men of other fraternities and treat them as 
strangers. Such conservatism is not produc- 
tive of a healthy college spirit. To secure a 
more intimate relationship among the students 
the advisability of establishing college com- 
mons was discussed last year, but as most of 
the fraternities have attractive dining halls in 
their chapter houses where they can secure 



200 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



very satisfactory service, and for other reasons 
it was found inexpedient. 

The Orient wishes to suggest a plan, 
which, if adopted, it believes, will do much to 
bring about a closer and more cordial 
relationship among all the fellows in college. 
The plan is a simple one : Let each club receive 
a different eating check once and dine out with 
one once each month. By this custom, dur- 
ing the college year of nine months, every 
club will have received every other club and 
will have accepted invitations to dine with 
every other club. 

Two objections may be raised: (i) That it 
would overtax the service of the club enter- 
taining. (2) That the seating capacity of the 
club dining-halls is insufficient. As to the 
first it can be said that on several occasions 
during the year, such as Initiations, Indoor 
Meet and on days of prominent games, each 
club entertains a larger number of alumni and 
friends than the addition of the visiting club 
would make ; besides the extra work involved 
would be balanced every month, as each club 
would have one less meal to serve. The 
second difficulty could be easily managed by 
the arrangements to seat half of the club 
entertaining with half of the visiting club and 
letting the remainder of both clubs be served 
at a second sitting. In this way that famil- 
iarity which comes through table companion- 
ship could be enjoyed. By a plan of this 
nature the numerous advantages found in 
fraternity eating clubs can be retained with- 
out detriment to the college unity.

PHYSICAL TRAINING. 

The new regulations governing cuts will 
be extended to the courses in Physical Train- 
ing. 

Each student may have five cuts. 

Rules regarding excuses for illness will be 
the same as in other courses. All work lost 
by reason of cuts must be made up. 



The regular Thursday evening meeting of the 
association was omitted on account of Thanks- 
giving. 

The next Sunday service will be held Dec. II, 
and will be addressed by Mr. Mc Arthur, Harvard, 
'05. 
A FEW FACTS ABOUT THE HARVARD WORK, 

At Harvard the Association has four Bible 
Study classes for the college ; one for the law 
department and one for its medical department. It 
has also a very active mission study class under 
Professor E. C. Moore. 

The Association also does social service work 
at the Riverside Alliance, the South End House. 
Prospect Union and Cambridge Social Union, in 
which about two hundred fellows are engaged every 
week. 

The work of these men consists in giving instruc- 
tions in boxing ; leading devotional meetings, giving 
instruction in all elementary subjects, such as arith- 
metic, modern languages, spelling, singing, piano- 
forte, mandolin, etc.; leading Bible Study classes: 
teaching English to the Chinese ; in teaching 
Sunday-schools ; in personal work and practical phil- 
anthropic work. 

The sailors' reading-room at T wharf is per- 
haps the most distinctly practical move ; here the 
sailors' mail is distributed ; money can be deposited ; 
suitable entertainment is provided which tends to 
render the life of the sailors, which would otherwise 
be spent in saloons, at gambling, in houses of ill 
fame, etc., more respectable and saves for them hun- 
dreds of dollars each year. 

Speakers are sent out from the Association every 
Sunday to address Y. M. C. A. meetings in the pre- 
paratory schools and church gatherings. 

In addition to paying its own current expenses, 
the Association pays the salary of Edward C. Car- 
ter, who is the executive head of all Y-. M. C. A. 
work in the Indian Empire. 

This is the work of one of hundreds of such 
associations. This work is only a fair sample of our 
college work. Might this not be characterized as 
undoubtedly the most promising movement among 
our colleges? 

Let us remember and be proud of the fact that we 
belong to the international Young Men's Christian 
Association. Let us be proud of the fact that the 
end of the Association is service, and let us remem- 
ber that service to one's fellows is the great end 
which the trend of all great movements is seeking 
to reach.

teams. 

Kent's Hill and Hebron have closed their foot- 
ball season with very satisfactory results. Dunlap, 
'03, and Professor A. L. Laferriere, '01, coached the 
teams. 

At Bates there is a student totally blind who is 
entering upon his second year of work. He is R. 
J. Rochford, '07, and comes from Newton Lower 
Falls, Massachusetts. 

Rev. G. Walter Fiske of Auburn, Me., pastor of 
the High Street Congregational Church, occupied 
the pulpit of the Church on the Hill Sunday in 
exchange with Rev. Mr. Jump. 

A hotel costing $10,000 and fifty cottages are to 
be built on a strip of land below Merrymeeting 
Park comprising about a hundred acres and extend- 
ing northerly from Cook's Corner. 

A picture of Emma Grove, who lives on the 
Maquoit Road, and is the largest woman in Maine 
appears in last week's Lciviston Journal. She has 
a full beard and tips the scales at 507 pounds ! 

Thirteen deaths have resulted from foot-ball this 
season. The casualty list is the same as last year, 
but the number of serious injuries is largely in execss 
of previous years. The players injured number 296. 

Many of the students who remained over Thanks- 
giving saw the Brunswick High School girls defeat 
the Yarmouth girls in basket-ball by the score of 
three to nothing at the high school building last 
Wednesday. 

A foot-ball team composed of 1908 men defeated 
Portland High School by the score of 5 to o 
Thanksgiving. The superior weight and team work 
of the Freshmen proved too much for the High 
School boys, who put up a very plucky fight. 

The Saturday Club holds an afternoon on "Cera- 
mics" or "Pottery" to-morrow at their rooms in the 
Unitarian Church. Several papers are to be read 
dealing with this matter, and Professor Chapman is 
to read from Longfellow. The admission for out- 
siders is twenty-five cents. 

Deer and even moose are reported to be very 
plentiful around Brunswick this fall. A herd of 
four or five has been seen several times down Harps- 
well way and two deer have been shot near the 
Gurnet. Several Bowdoin Nimrods have gone out 
in fierce array against them, but as yet have had no 
success. 

Friends of the college and in particular those for- 
merly connected with the medical school will be 
saddened to learn that Dr. Bart Green Wilder, 
professor of physiology in the Medical School of 
Maine from 1875 to 1884. recently suffered a bereave- 
ment in the loss of his wife, Mrs. Sarah Lowell 
Nichols.

BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



The college campus was a quiet place Thanks- 
giving Day. Despite the fact that only a brief 
respite was given for the Thanksgiving season, 
nearly all the men in college managed it in such a 
way that he could get home without overstepping 
the limited number of cuts, or else visited friends. 

The second annua! smoker of the College Club 
of Portland was held at Hotel Falmouth last Satur- 
day evening. A very large and enthusiastic crowd 
were present. Many Bowdoin men were among 
the number but representatives were present from 
Williams, Harvard, Dartmouth, Brown, M. I. T., U. 
S. Military Academy, Georgetown. Bates, U. of M., 
Boston University, U. of Pennsylvania, Colby and 
Yale. Franklin C. Payson, '76, was elected presi- 
dent for the year and George M. Seiders, '72, one 
of the vice-presidents. 



A CHURCH ON OUTER LONG ISLAND. 

Rev. Charles G. Fogg, Class of 1896, and Mrs. 
Fogg were sent in the spring of 1903, to Outer Long 
Island, as the first pastoral couple on the Island, by 
the Maine Missionary Society. Outer Long Island 
is situated eight miles out in the Atlantic, south of 
Mt. Desert Island. On it live some thirty families 
of sturdy fishermen, the total population being 
about 170. 

For over 100 years attempts have been made 
there to carry on religious work. Twenty years ago 
a very successful Sunday-school was started by the 
veteran coast missionary, Captain Lane., under the 
direction of the Congregational Sunday-school and 
Publishing Society. Ten years later a Congregational 
church was organized by Rev. A. P. McDonald, 
Class of 1S91, who was at that time a student at col- 
lege here. The following year the much-needed 
church was erected. For the next ten years a 
number of ministers served there for a short time 
and until Mr. and Mrs. Fogg's arrival there was no 
regular pastor. When they came the inhabitants all 
turned to and helped to erect a parsonage. They 
are very loyal and contribute yearly about $300 
towards the running expenses which are about $550 
for the year. Mr. and Mrs. Fogg have been doing 
splendid work among the people. Mrs. Fogg con- 
ducts the Sunday-school and is in great demand in 
times of sickness. She also carries on classes in 
sewing. Sometimes in the absence of Mr. Fogg 
she occupies the pulpit. 

They are reaching out into the neighboring 
islands, establishing Sunday-schools and inciting 
interest in many isolated families. 



CLASS OF 1875 PRIZE IN AMERICAN 
HISTORY. 

The Class of 1875 Prize, consisting of the annual 
income of three thousand dollars, was established 
by William J. Curtis of New York City and is 
awarded to the student who writes the best essay 
and passes the best examination on some assigned 
subject. Dr. Roberts has given out the list of sub- 
jects for this year's competition as follows : 

Negro Problem and American History. 1783-1904. 

Constitutional Aspects of National Taxation and 
Finance, 1789-1904. 

History of the Northeastern Boundary. 



ON DIT 

That the new corner of the running track is a 
great improvement. 

That it's time for the fellows to try it. 
That the foot-ball subscriptions have not all been 
paid. 

That the Seniors are looking forward to the 
''Teas" as a means of escaping "Gym." 

A Boston colony has bought up Merrymeeting 
Bay for a summer resort. 

We are going to have a Hockey Team and pos- 
sibly a Dramatic Club? 

It is to be a rally — not a smoker. 

The organ has gone on a "toot." 

Yale has earned a million dollars in foot-ball 
profits. The next big combine will be a foot-ball 
trust. 

Foot-ball isn't in it for danger compared with 
going into the woods and getting riddled by your 
friends. 

If the discussion over "those eggs" gets much 
hotter there will be a large crop of chickens soon.. 

The Juniors were somewhat surprised at the 
result of the last History quiz. 

That the average student is not looking towards 
the beginning of "gym." with any tranquil spirit. 

That the Quill is facetious. 

That All-Maine teams are on the wane. 

That a college orchestra is still a thing of the 
future. 



MASSACHUSETTS CLUB. 

Thanksgiving is now a thing of the past and the 
Christmas vacation will soon be here. Last year 
the Massachusetts Club gave a banquet in Boston to 
which all Bowdoin undergraduates and alumni who 
were in the city at that time were invited. This 
year none was given because of the shortness of the 
vacation. However, the club has already given the 
matter of holding some such banquet during the 
Christmas vacation this year some consideration. If 
one is held at this time, many prospective sub- 
Freshmen will also be invited, as was the case at 
the smoker which the club held last winter. It is 
earnestly hoped that the event will take place and 
that every undergraduate and alumnus who possibly 
can will help to make the banquet a success by his 
attendance. 



PORTLAND ECONOMIC CLUB. 

The Portland Economic Club formed September 
21, met recently and made plans for the winter. It 
was decided to meet at stated intervals during the 
winter at the different hotels of the city and have a 
banquet each time. The club will be run on the 
same plan as the famous Economic Club of Boston, 
which has a membership of over 600. It will be 
strictly non-partisan and is organized for open dis- 
cussion of economic and political questions. The 
officers are principally Bowdoin men. President, 
Charles P. Mattocks, '62; Vice-President. Charles 
F. Libby, '64; Secretary, Howard R. Ives, '98. The 
names of L. M. Cousens, '02, and H. M. V.errill, '97, 
are among the members.

MAINE COLLEGE INDOOR MEET. 

If suitable arrangements can be made a big col- 
lege indoor meet will be held at the auditorium 
in Portland this winter under the auspices of the 
Portland Athletic Club. The Athletic Club will 
extend an invitation to Bowdoin, Bates, Colby and 
U. of M., and a fine program of track events 
will be arranged. 

Members of the alumni of the . different col- 
leges and college athletes have been approached and 
all express themselves as greatly in favor of mak- 
ing the meet a big success. 

There would be relay races, hurdling, short 
dashes, putting shot and other such tests of strength 
and endurance. If arrangements are successfully 
carried through the indoor meet will probably be 
:held some time about the first of the year. 



GRAY GOOSE TRACKS. 

The November issue of the Quill devoted so 
much space to Ye Postman, that it was unable to 
print all of the Goose Tracks. The Orient takes 
great pleasure in granting a little space for printing 
the remainder. 

"Here I come !" said the Fusser, as he "butted" 
into the Gander Club, which was gathered about the 
fire-place, watching the cheerful fire. The members 
were drinking pink lemonade, and gossiping about 
their own greatness. 

"Well, what of it?" asked the Scrambler. 



"That's just the point," replied the Fusser. 

"What point is there to that?" asked the Block 
Head. 

"There is just as much point to that, as to any- 
thing else we say," said Metamorphosis musingly. 

"That is true," yawned the Hibernating One. 
"We. of the Gander Club, have outgrown our use- 
fulness. Let's crawl into a cave somewhere, and 
pull the hole in after us." 

"No, no," put in Shylock. "Let's have one more 
meeting where we may even scores with the Orien- 
tals. For my part I think we aren't a very energetic 
lot. We had better turn the affair over to other 
hands." 

"You're right," sighed Metamorphosis. "There's 
lots of men in college, who are good with a pen, 
whom we haven't even tried to draw out." 

"By the way," interposed the Block Head, "we 
can't follow the old customs, and elect a new club 
from the Junior Class. We haven't urged enough 
of those fellows to work for us, have we?" 

"You are right," acknowledged the Scrambler. 
"What is to be done about it? I can't for the life 
of me solve such a weighty problem." 

"I know," said Shylock. "The Orientals sug- 
gested to me that we elect from the college at 
large." 

"Wonderful!" interjected the Hibernating One. 
"How do you suppose they ever conceived such a 
brilliant idea?" 

"It's beyond me." said the Block Head. "Lucky 
we have those fellows to help us out." 

Such a great idea seemed to absorb the Ganders' 
attention and silence fell upon the group. Slowly 
the fire burned away, and the ashes fell cold upon 
the hearth. At length the Ganders arose listlessly 
and passed out into the night. The stars were 
shining with brilliant radiance. Metamorphosis and 
Block Head stopped for a moment and gazed at the 
newly rising galaxy of stars. 

"See," said Metamorphosis sadly. "They shine 
so brightly in the birth of the night. Do you sup- 
pose they can retain all their lustre, the whole night 
through ? Some things, you know, waste all the 
energy in starting." 

"Yes, yes." answered the Block Head. "Our 
case exactly. I trust those new stars won't make 
the same mistake."

Untercolleoiate IRews. 



Amherst has just established a class of history 
and political and social science with an endowment 
of $16,000 in honor of Henry Ward Beecher, her 
most distinguished alumnus. 

David J. Main of Denver, Col., left halfback of 
the Dartmouth foot-ball team, has been elected cap- 
tain for 1905. Main is also the right fielder of the 
base-ball team. 

Last year Yale had an annual deficit of $41,926, 
This fall the management of the foot-ball team 
cleared $70,000, and it is said that the total amount 
which has been earned by this department of ath- 
letics has reached a million dollars. 

For the first time in the history of the college 
Tufts has a registration of over a thousand, a suit- 
able reward for just fifty years of faithful service. 
The total enrollment of all the departments is 1025, 
an increase of 75 over last year. 

Fire in Morgan Hall, the largest and most costly 
of the dormitories at Williams College, destroyed 
about $40,000 worth of property, Nov. 24. The 
centre of the building was entirely ruined, and thirty 
of the seventy students who roomed there were 
turned out. The building was erected in 1882 
through the generosity of ex-Governor Morgan of 
New York at a cost of $82,400.

BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



VOL. XXXIV. 



BRUNSWICK, MAINE, DECEMBER 9, 1904. 



NO. 19. 



EXTRACT FROM REV. MR. JUMP'S ADDRESS 



THE UTILITY OF UNSELFISHNESS: JOHN 
A. ANDREW, '37. 

For each thing in the world there is some essen- 
tial virtue the lack of which makes the institution 
hollow and poor, indeed. The home must needs 
have purity. The church would be no church at all 
without sincerity. And so, too, the state has need 
of men who have the virtue of unselfishness ; unsel- 
fishness to stem the tides of adversity and corrup- 
tion, to stand the shocks of misunderstandings. 
Such a quality in its highest details had John A. 
Andrew. 

John Andrew was born in the little town of 
Windham, in the vicinity of Portland. The year 
was 1818. He received the education given by the 
schools and entered Bowdoin in the Class of 1S37. 
In college he was a lazy fellow doing little or no 
work in his courses. He was, however, very pop- 
ular and spent much of his spare time visiting 
through the various ends. One of his pastimes was 
mimicking the pastor of the Church on the Hill, to 
the huge enjoyment of his fellows. 

In due time he was graduated and started to 
teach school. A year later he went to Boston and 
began the study of law. He was admitted to the 
bar, served a term in the state legislature and was 
elected Governor of Massachusetts for the years 
1861-65. 

John Andrew came to the gubernatorial chair just 
when a vigorous, high-minded, unselfish soul was 
most needed. The Civil War was threatening, and 
the North was unprepared. Many of the Northern 
people did not believe that the South would secede 
and waited unprepared. Did the Governor of Mas- 
sachusetts wait as the rest? Not he. . He gathered 
his troops and his ammunition and awaited the sig- 
nal. When the message came ringing through the 
North for troops to defend the flag, the wisdom of 
Andrew's policy stood revealed. Massachusetts 
troops were on their way to Washington within 
three days after the call for troops. The glorious 
result you all know. How, while passing through 
the streets of Baltimore, a mob assailed the troops 
and spilled the first blood upon the altar of the 
nation's salvation. 

All through the war the governor was active and 
vigorous, aiding the nation with all his might. He 
was an ardent believer in emancipation, and was 
one of the first to urge the utility of black troops. 

The war over Governor Andrew retired to the 
practice of law. But he was still active in all press- 
ing problems. He was especially unselfish in his 
attempt to have the prohibition law repealed.* One 
of the elements of Puritan nature is its tenacity to 
what is believed to be right. It takes a brave and 
generous man, indeed, to oppose Puritan New Eng- 
land when once its opinion is established. But John 



Andrew was a Puritan himself, and a brave and 
persevering soul. He saw the uselessness and eva- 
sion of the prohibition law in its state of corrup- 
tion in Massachusetts, and stood forth boldly in 
opposition. By honest and vigorous endeavors he 
swung the people to his standard and succeeded in 
securing the repeal of the law. 

He died in 1867 still devoting himself unselfishly 
and untiringly to the advancement of mankind. 



ART BUILDING. 

Through the kindness of Mrs. Benjamin Green, 
a former resident of Brunswick, an Orchestrelle, or 
pipe organ with paper record attachment, has been 
loaned to the Art Building as well as a cecilian by 
the firm of Cressey & Allen of Portland. 

Prof. Hutchins and Dr. Mason have undertaken 
an illustrated course in the history of music which 
will be accessible to the students and townspeople 
as far as there is room. A series of ten recitals 
has been arranged to begin after New Year's. This 
novelty will be welcomed by the music lovers of the 
college who should avail themselves of this oppor- 
tunity for high class recitals. 

There is now on exhibition at the Art Building 
a series of ninety odd pictures descriptive of the 
cathedral at Amiens. Amiens, 75 miles north of 
Paris, was the ancient Samarolbriva, chief town of 
the Ambrani captured by Cresar. It is now one of 
the leading manufacturing and commercial centres 
of France, with a population of 83,650. The cathe- 
dral begun in 1220 and finished in 1288, is perhaps 
the finest existing mediaeval structure, a master- 
piece of Gothic architecture. The pictures, which 
represent mostly interior views portray the "most 
magnificient spectacles that architectural skill has 
ever produced." The views are the property of the 
Library Art Club. 



DEBATING NOTES. 

The debates this week showed notable improve- 
ment in many respects. First of all there was more 
spirit, more enthusiasm, although we are still too 
uninterested in manner of delivery. The most 
commendable work was that of Redman in Section 
A and Harvey in Section B. 

The speeches from the floor do not yet show cor- 
responding progress. The first essential in all our 
work is to have something to say. 

Next Monday, December 12, the question in 
Section A will be : 

"The President of the United States has power, 
and should have power, to call out the militia to 
quell labor troubles and other local disturbances, 
without the consent or request of the state, when- 
ever, in his judgment, the interests of the country 



206 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



require such action." Affirmative : Greene and Pike. 
Negative : Clark and Sanborn. 

Next Tuesday, December 13, the question in Sec- 
tion B will be : "The United States should co-oper- 
ate with the several states or civil subdivisions 
thereof in the permanent improvement of the pub-, 
lie highways according to the plan proposed in bill 
number 15,369." Affirmative : Duddy and Nor- 
cross. Negative : A. B. Roberts and Wilson. 



Christian Hssociation litems. 



The Thursday evening service of Dec. 1st, was 
conducted by Booth. '06. The topic of "Our Duty 
and Acts Toward Missions" was especially well 
treated by the leader. Is it not true, that leaving 
out of consideration any religious phase of mis- 
sions — their worth as a social factor to-day gives 
them a claim to our interest. What we owe to mis- 
sions is attested by the history of the past two 
thousand years. We may not become missionaries 
but let us remember that the one who does give up 
his life to the mission work is doing a heroic act. 
During the service Mr. Booth read several letters 
from college men, who were destined for the far 
east. These letters were written in answer to the 
question "Why are you going to the mission field?" 
The answers were inspiring and worthy of all mod- 
ern progress and scholarship. 

SERVICE FOR DECEMBER 12. 

On Sunday. December twelfth, the Association 
will be addressed by Kenneth McArthur, the Presi- 
dent of the Harvard Association. Mr. McArthur is 
the son of the well-known Dr. McArthur of Brook- 
lyn, New York. He is reputed to be a very earnest, 
pleasing speaker and is most certain to give an inter- 
esting talk. Let us manifest to the Harvard man 
that interest which we should feel in his talk and 
in him as a representative from a sister institution. 



GOVERNMENT CLUB. 



The Government Club was organized Monday, 
Dec, 5, as follows: Burroughs, Campbell, Clarke, 
Davis, W. F. Finn, Green, Haggett, Harvey, Hall, 
Newton. Norton, Pierce, Sanborn, White, Webb, 
and Dr. Roberts, honorary member. 



PROPOSED CHANGES IN FOOT-BALL 
RULES. 

At the next meeting of the Rules Committee of 
the Intercollegiate Foot-Ball Association two new 
rules will be brought up for discussion. The first 
of these is to change the number of yards necessary 
to be gained in four downs from five, the present 
number, to seven. This change will undoubtedly 
give the smaller college teams a better chance to 
hold the big elevens for downs than they have had 
under the five-yard rule. The nature of the second 
proposed change is to lessen the tendency towards 
the tackle-back and tandem formations. This 
change will probably meet with much opposition 
and it is doubtful if it can be effected. 



MR. DOOLEY ON HOCKEY. 
(Apologies to Mr. F. P. Dunne.) 

"Have ye heard the news, Dooley?" asked Hen- 
nessey, as he kicked the snow from his shoes and 
unbuttoned his great coat. 

"Let's have it," said the non-committal Dooley 
as he spat at the sand-box in front of the stove 
with a superb precision. 

Hennessey swelled with importance: "The byes 
at the college be afther havin' a winter foot-ball 
tame." 

"A whut?" asked the disdainful Dooley. 

"It's that, or the likes of it," replied Hennessey 
a bit crestfallen. 

"It's ice-hockey they'd be afther havin'," went 
on Dooley. "Ye're an ignorant cratur, Hennessey, 
Docthor Whitthier told me all about it, a wake 
since." 

"What'll it be all about?" inquired Hennessey 
with supreme trust in Dooley's unfailing wisdom. 

The oracle spat once more in a comprehensive 
way and began. 

"There'll be five men to a hockey tame. First, 
there's a gool tender, what stands forninst a gool 
made of meal bags, with his fate spread apart, 
a-bateing his arms to kape thim warm. Nixt there's 
a feller they call a back, what gits back at the 
opposin' tame with a clout over their shins. Thin 
there's two forrards and a cintre-rush that play like 
the divil to bate the inimy." 

"How do they play?" asked Hennessey. 

"I was jist comin' to that," said Dooley, now 
thoroughly warmed to his subject. "Each wan has 
a crooked club like an ould man's walking-stick 
tipped upside down. There's an innicent look- 
in' bit of a ball on the ice an' whin the referee 
blows his whistle, the centre-rush ups with his club 
and hits the ball. Finally the ball hits wan of the 
ither fellers in the eye and thin there's a time out. 
If it chances to miss thin they all skate afther 
the ball and git in a crowd around it and 
sthrike as hard as they can. If they miss the ball 
they have to hit somewan's shins instid. That's 
wan of the rules. Thirl whin ivery wan has a 
bloody nose, they all rush to the gool-tinder, and 
while wan of thim jabs him in the stummack 
with a club, another wan knocks the ball into the 
meal bag. That's what they call a gool." 

"It's a great game," sighed Dooley after a rem- 
iniscent pause, "I used to play it whin I was a boy 
in the ould cotmthry." 



BOSTON ALUMNI CLUB. 

The regular meeting of the Boston Alumni Club 
was held last Saturday night, at University Hall. 
The evening was made extremely entertaining by the 
presence and address of William I. Cole, '81, of the 
South End Work. Mr. Cole, who has for many 
years been an important factor in Social Settlement 
work in Boston, took for his subject, "Socialism 
and Socialism." He has recently been abroad 
studying the social conditions and his observations 
and experiences were of especial interest to the club.

OFFICIAL NOTICE. 



An examination for all those who failed to pass 
the entrance examination in History will be held in 
the History Lecture Room, Adams Hall, Dec. 16, at 
2.30 p.m. All those who intend to take this exam- 
ination should see Professor Roberts before that 
date. 



DEDICATION OF NEW TOWN LIBRARY. 

Yesterday afternoon occurred the dedication of 
the new Brunswick Town Library Building, the 
gift to his native town of William John Curtis, '75. 
The exercises were held in the new building at 3 
p.m. Mr. Curtis, himself, gave the address of pre- 
sentation. Capt. Samuel Stover accepted the build- 
ing in behalf of the town, and Professor Henry 
L. Chapman, gave a short address. Prof. Robinson, 
president of the Library Association, presided, and 
gave some interesting facts in connection with the 
construction of the building. In the evening a 
reception was held in the library, at which the receiv- 
ing committee consisted of Air. and Mrs. Curtis, 
Professor and Mrs. F. C. Robinson, a representative 
from the Board of Selectmen; and Miss Gilman, the 
librarian. Many of the students were present. Few 
connected with the college probably realize the 
importance that this library has with the college. 
Not only are we interested in a general way. but 
arrangements have been made for a mutual exchange 
of courtesies between the two libraries, by which 
the town library contributes reference books to the 
Bowdoin library, and the college library in return 
aids the town in its current literature department. 
Furthermore, the town library permits college stu- 
dents to take out books, a privilege of great advan- 
tage as the Brunswick library has one of the best 
libraries of fiction for its size in the State. This 
will be greatly appreciated by all. 



GEORGE W. CABLE'S HOME CULTURE 
CLUB. 

A most unique club is the Home Culture Club 
of Northampton, Mass., formed by the novelist, 
George W. Cable, on whom Bowdoin conferred the 
honorary degree of Doctor of Laws last commence- 
ment. One of the most conspicuous features of the 
work in its present form is its classes for those who 
labor during the day. Almost everything conceiva- 
ble that will give its members a cultured taste as well 
as brain and muscle, is taught. German, French, 
English, gymnastics, etc., are taught by college stu- 
dents who perform the work for the experience it 
affords while cooking, sewing, etc., are taught by 
domestic service graduates. Dancing classes, taught 
by Smith College girls, have been a feature of the 
club for a long time. The home culture registration 
alone represents 18 nationalities and 83 employ- 
ments ; this among a fluctuating membership 
between 350 and 400. George W. Cable has been 
President of the club since he formed it seventeen 
years ago. Mrs. Professor A. L. P. Dennis, for- 
merly of Brunswick, but now of Chicago, is Mr. 
Cable's daughter. 



PRESIDENT HYDE AT CHAPEL. 

President Hyde's address at chapel last Sunday 
afternoon was inspiring and fraught with interest to 
everyone in college. His remarks hinged chiefly on 
what a great hindrance opportunities are to any per- 
son if wrongly used — if they are used as resting 
places instead of stepping-stones. He pointed out 
that the rich man's son of to-day is surrounded by 
no serious cares and having all his wants supplied 
he does not learn to think and act and achieve for 
himself. 

Also in the great opportunities held out by our 
present system of education there is the greatest 
danger. Education nowadays is too easy. The really 
powerful men are not those who have been 
turned out by having their course mapped out for 
them from day to day. but they are the ones who 
have been original, who have dug things out for 
themselves, who have learned by experience. 

The likelihood of many college men being able to 
achieve great success in literary pursuits is exceed- 
ingly slight because opportunity, in the shape of 
translations, makes the pursuit of their courses so 
easy that the value gained is only second-hand. 

Likewise there is so much ease in the manner of 
public worship that the great majority attend church 
and chapel regularly without taking the main object 
of worship into account at all, but go away with 
only criticism or fault-finding with the service or 
the manner of its being conducted. 

Opportunity to-day has so simplified everything 
that man must do. that there is the gravest danger 
of turning out an inferior lot of men. This must be 
guarded against, for the only man who really 
amounts to anything is the one who accomplishes 
something by his own energy. 



THE MAINE ORNITHOLOGICAL SOCIETY. 

The Maine Ornithological Society held its annual 
meeting in Bangor on November 25 and 26. At the 
public meetings many interesting papers on the 
birds of Maine were read by members from differ- 
ent parts of the State. These will appear later in 
the Journal published by the Society. By invita- 
tion the members were given the opportunity of 
examining the famous collections of Mr. Harry 
Merrill of Bangor and Mr. Manly Hardy of Brewer. 
The latter collection contains specimens of all the 
species of birds found in the United States except 
six or eight. Professor Lee was elected President 
of the Society for the coming year. 



BIOLOGY 6. 

During the second semester Professor Lee will 
offer a new course in the Department of Biology on 
Organic Evolution. This will be designated Biol- 
ogy 6. The course will deal with such topics as 
variation, adaptation, heredity, natural selection and 
other problems of theoretical biology which natur- 
ally arise in connection with the practical courses 
in Zoology and Botany. It will be a lecture and 
recitation course of three hours a week and will 
be open to those who have taken Biology 2 and 3.

FRIDAY, DEC. 9, 1904. 



Ice Hockey. 



Our skating rink is now a 
reality, and we wish to 
extend to Dr. Whittier and the other mem- 
bers of the Faculty who have been influential 
in obtaining it, the hearty appreciation and 
thanks of the entire student body. . Hockey is 
a game which has never been adopted in this 
state by the colleges, and it is, therefore, sin- 
cerely hoped that it may be a success. Those 
who are acquainted with the game here at 
Bowdoin should do what they can to further 
the undertaking. We would suggest the 
formation of class and fraternity teams in 
order to create interest. If it is a success, as 
it undoubtedly will be, the other colleges in 
the State will probably take it up, and if so, 
the hopes and desires of those who are influ- 
ential in our athletics will be realized. Per- 



haps few of the fellows know it, but it is a 
fact that lights were put into the grandstand 
for the express purpose that games, such as 
hockey, might be played on the athletic field 
in the evening. All the large colleges take 
much interest in this game and it is consid- 
ered one of the finest of athletic sports. Let 
us do what we can to continue the good work. 



Track Work. 



It is especially desired by 
Captain Denning that as 
many of the men as can, do work on the track 
this winter in addition totheirphysicaltraining 
in the gym. It is impossible now to get attend- 
ance for running only, but one can be excused 
the last fifteen minutes of the gym. hour as 
well as not for track. The Freshmen are urged 
to take advantage of this and spend as much 
time as possible on the track, for the men from 
this class are yet to be developed. Several of 
the fellows have started cross country running 
and this is, indeed, an excellent idea. It is 
hoped that a large number of the fellows will 
take it up. 



., „ „ . „, , Amongthe many branches 
Y. M. C. A. Work. . ° . . . , , 

of activity which the col- 
lege holds out to its members is one which we 
are only too apt to forget. This is the Y. M. 
C. A., an organization of the college for its 
students and maintained by the students. No 
organization in college is more worthy of 
support from the undergraduates than this 
one, but men seem to treat it with indifference 
and almost refuse to acknowledge its good. 

At other institutions, some of the greatest 
in the country, large, flourishing and enthusi- 
astic Christian Associations are maintained. 
In the humdrum of our busy lives we forget 
the practical good of the Association and 
divide our attentions with amusement and 
diversion. 

It takes but little time to attend all the 
meetings of the Association. It is easy 
enough to find three-quarters of an hour a 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



209 



week in which we can indulge in a few 
moments of earnest thought and devotion. 
The meetings serve also to bring the fellows 
together on equal terms and also increase the 
morals of the college. The matter should not 
be taken lightly, but due consideration to the 
aims and purpose of the Association should 
be given. 



Exemption from In most other colleges it 
Final is customary to exempt 

Examinations. f rom tne fi na i examina- 

tions of the last semester of Senior year to 
such men as attain to or above a certain 
mark in their term's work. The plan is feasi- 
ble. We believe it advisable. Suppose, for 
instance, a man was granted exemption from 
examination in all the courses of his last 
semester in which he attained a rank of 
eighty-five or over. Every Senior in each 
course would work all the harder and make 
every possible endeavor to attain that mark. 
At present the Senior is always in more or 
less of a lethargy during the spring months, 
cares not a whit what mark he gets so long 
as the coveted diploma is his. A final exami- 
nation, like a death's head at the feast, is 
always a bugaboo to every man, be he good 
or poor scholar, industrious worker or lazy 
hanger-on. The good scholar will get his 
"A," examination or not, while the lazy man, 
who depends so much upon the final struggle, 
which he nevertheless hates and fears, will 
work all the harder when he sees a chance, by 
so doing, to avoid the grinning skeleton 
ahead. 



Gymnasium 
Work. 



This week marks the 
beginning of gymnasium 
work. As is generally 
known this is considered a "bug bear" by 
many of the students and it is lamentable 
that it should be so. Physical training should 
go hand in hand with mental training and the 
student at college is, of all men, the one who 



should not neglect the physical side of his 
nature. It is a well-known fact that no man 
can do his best in his studies or in any other 
line if he does not keep his body in good phy- 
sical condition. Running around a board 
track, jumping and pole-vaulting indoors, 
etc., may not be as enjoyable as exercising on 
the athletic field, but it is the best possible 
substitute for winter. Moreover it keeps a 
man in condition for the outdoor work to fol- 
low in the spring. To those who are entering 
upon systematic exercise for the first time, 
such as the drills it will not be out of place to 
speak a word on the value of this work. The 
surest proof of the benefit to be derived from 
the "gym." work is the marked improvement 
which individuals make in the hardness of 
muscle and the general symmetry of the body. 
It often takes considerable will power to enter 
zealously upon the drills and the individual 
work prescribed by Dr. Whittier, but only 
when taken up in this way can the full benefit 
be derived. Let us, then, enter into this work 
with as much earnestness as we enter into 
other phases of college life which may be 
more agreeable to us. We all long for a new 
gymnasium. Let us show that we are worthy 
of the same. 



A Liberal Offer. 



Professor Burnett has 



suggested to his Philoso- 
phy Class that if the men taking the course 
cared to organize themselves into three 
groups, he would be glad to give each group 
an hour every week for philosophical discus- 
sion. The class will make a great mistake if 
they don't avail themselves of this liberal offer. 
It should be remembered that three extra 
hours a week is no small sacrifice of time on 
the part of an instructor. Such opportunities 
do not come to students in large colleges and 
universities. In small gatherings of ten or 
twelve the students may not only acquaint 
themselves more thoroughly with the course, 
but gain that valuable instruction which comes 



210 



BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



from personal contact with professors. The 
class should show their appreciation by organ- 
izing at once. 



In the last issue of the 
A Correction and Orient appeared an edi- 
Stealing of , . . .... , „ T ., 

Library Periodicals t0nal entltled Llbrar > r 

Periodicals," the sub- 
stance of which was a criticism of the system 
employed by the Library in binding maga- 
zines. The data used for this editorial was 
furnished us by one of the assistants at the 
charging desk who either misinformed us or 
else we misinterpreted his statements. Inas- 
much as the facts as given are wrong, in jus- 
tice to the Library authorities we wish to pre- 
sent them in their true light. It is not the 
practice of the Library to bind the magazines 
of one year the fall of the year following, as 
we supposed from the information we derived. 
On the contrary every effort is made at the 
beginning of the summer vacation to send off 
as many as possible that the bound volumes 
might be upon the shelves at the beginning of 
the college year. That a supplementary ship- 
ment to the bindery this fall was found neces- 
sary, was due to the large number of periodi- 
cals that disappeared from the reading-room 
between October and June. This past year 
when the magazines were checked up there 
was found to be scarcely a perfect volume 
among any of the more used, while .some of 
the volumes lacked several numbers. The cost 
to the library for replacing these missing 
copies was found to be so large that it 
was thought best to hold back some of 
the volumes till this fall in the vain hope 
that some of the lost numbers might 
be replaced. A college man who would sell 
his honor for a miserly ten or twenty-five 
cents, the cost of the average magazine, is 
beneath criticism. But we cannot rightly lay 
all the blame for this theft on the student- 
body, for only last Sunday afternoon a citizen 
of the town was caught in the act of stealing 
a magazine from the reading-room. Such 



depredation as this is deplorable and we sin- 
cerely hope it will cease at once. 



PROPOSED P. A. C. MEET. 

There is more or less interest in the proposed 
indoor meet which may be held in Portland, this 
winter. Nearly all who are prominent in track 
athletics in college are of the opinion that such a 
meet would be a most desirable thing. It is 
believed that the meet would be very desirable as a 
preliminary for the men who take part in the annual 
B. A. A. meet in Boston, as well as making it an 
object for all other track men. At present the 
indoor meet in the spring is the only event that 
keeps the larger number of men interested in their 
track work, and with a Portland meet, it is believed 
the two will give a greatly increased impetus which 
cannot fail to be beneficial. 

Capt. Denning expresses himself as pleased with 
the idea and says if satisfactory arrangements can 
be made he would be heartily in favor of such a 
meet. Ex-Captain Rowe of the '04 track team is 
also of the opinion that it would be a good thing. 
He believes that the only difficulty will be to find a 
satisfactory date ; and if this can be done, thinks 
the event should be an interesting and beneficial one. 

As yet everything is more or less uncertain, as it 
is not known whether the Portland parties who are 
promoting the scheme will carry out the plans. Let- 
ters that have been received by the track manager 
have been thus far entirely unofficial and have been 
limited to a preliminary inquiry as to Bowdoin's 
idea of such a meet. It is to be hoped that such a 
meet will be carried out. 



PRESIDENT HYDE'S TRIP. 

President Hyde returned last week from an ex- 
tended trip throughout the North and East in 
behalf of the interests of the college. He left Bruns- 
wick November 11 and returned November 30. He 
visited Bangor, Augusta, Portland, Boston, New 
York, Cincinnati, Minneapolis, and Chicago. He met 
many alumni of the college who have left their 
native state to seek success in other places and 
everywhere was shown every attention by the grad- 
uates of Bowdoin and natives of the old Pine Tree 
State. In Minneapolis, as was mentioned last 
week in the Orient, he was very pleasantly enter- 
tained by Senator W. D. Washburn, '54, who gave a 
banquet in his honor to graduates of the college liv- 
ing in the city. This trip is but the beginning of a 
large and important effort by the president in behalf 
of the financial interests of the college, the out- 
come of which, it will be impossible to announce for 
some time yet. but the best hopes of all the friends 
of Bowdoin go with it. As a result of this effort 
twenty-five gentlemen, who have either graduated 
from Bowdoin or are natives of Maine, and have 
been successful in business life, have the matter 
under consideration, as to a subscription to the 
permanent endowment fund of the college of the 
sum of $500,000. All success to these endeavors !

BOWDOIN ORIENT. 



Students wishing to purchase a copy of the 
"Tales of Bowdoin" can do so by seeing Denning, 
'05. A hundred copies have been received, and will 
be sold at one dollar each. The former price was 
one-fifty, but it has been marked down in order to 
close out the last few copies. These books make 
very appropriate holiday gifts for the students, and 
the Freshmen should not fail to improve the oppor- 
tunity of obtaining them. 

In the current issue of a paper published by one 
of our sister institutions, is an editorial urging the 
students, in speaking or writing of their Alma 
Mater, to designate it as a university rather than as 
merely a college. It ends in this manner : "Is it not 
worth while, if we have the interests of the institu- 
tion at heart, to dignify it in our writing and speech 
by the appellation commensurate with our ideal, or 
at least the ideal of the people as indicated by the 
action of their representatives in the State legisla- 
ture?" ("And torture one poor word ten thousand 
ways.") 



That it is time to begin training for the relay 
team. 

That "Mike" passed the quiet of the chapel hour 
in the library last Sabbath. 

That the Freshmen are taking to gym. like ducks 
to water but wait till Senior year. 

That "King Pepper" is a rich feast of mirth and 
melody, with plenty of revelry added in. 

That class hockey teams are next in order. 

That nothing of any great extent has been done 
towards a Chess Club. 

That a reward will be given the person who is 
able to inform us, how we can get any mark except 
an "A" or an "E" in gym. 

That Prexy's talk last Sunday was the best the 
present generation of Bowdoin students ever heard 
him deliver. 

That everyone must have a gym. suit. 

That the Seniors are already looking forward to 
last gym. 

That Byron Stevens gives trading-stamps with 
hockey-sticks.

That there are a great many stiff joints these first 
few days of "gym." work. 

That Prof. Roberts gave adjourns in History last 
Wednesday morning. 

That the Freshmen have taken their final exams, 
in Algebra, and that the usual number will pursue 
this course for the second time. 

That the Orient subscriptions are due. 

That the Dramatic Club production, when 
selected, will be a good one. 

That the man who drove those nails — even

That when it comes to window smashing North 
Maine is the most popular place on the campus. 

That we need a new gymnasium.

That shower baths in the ends would be neither 
costly nor unappreciated. 

That very few students have seen the collection 
of photographs of historic Amiens which are on

That some Freshmen are learning that recitations 
are considered a part of the college course — at least 
by the professors. 

That some of the Freshmen wear their new 
sweaters to bed. 

That it's not safe to put your feet over the back 
of the seats in Professor Lee's recitations. 

That hockey beats basket-ball a mile. 

That Gray Goose Tracks caused a stir and that 
certain men are getting out their firearms. 

That it is only sixteen days to Christmas. 

That the proper thing for "her" present is a

BASE-BALL 

Base-ball practice in the cage began this week 
under the direction of "Pop" Williams, ex-'g6, for- 
merly of the Boston nationals, and ex-Captain Cox. 
From a preliminary survey, it looks as if the team, 
the coming season, will be one of the strongest for 
a number of years, aside from the pitching depart- 
ment, where the team will probably be weaker than 
usual, owing to the loss of Cox and Oakes. Of 
course, it is impossible to tell what men are likely 
to make the team, as there are an unusually good 
number of men out who should make a strong bid 
for the team. The most likely man for catcher is 
J. Green, who caught on the 'varsity three years 
ago and who is now in the Medical School. White 
is practically sure of his position at short stop, but 
aside from these two positions the make-up of the 
infield is uncertain. McGraw is probably one of the 
best all-round base-ball players in the State and is 
sure of some position. "Doc" Abbott is another 
all-round base-ball player and is sure to make the 
team. Other promising infieldera are Hodgson, who 
played on the 'varsity last year, Mitchell, Crowley, 
C. Clarke, Winslow and Lewis. These men together 
with a large number who have never been tried out, 
should produce one of the fastest infields Bowdoin 
has had for some time. 

In the outfield there will be Captain Clarke, B. 
Briggs, Kinsman. Piper and a number of other men 
who ought to help develop a strong trio in this 
territory. 

The question of a coach has not been settled as 
yet. The selection is likely to be made at the next 
meeting of the Athletic Council which will occur 
shortly. 

Following are the men who are taking base-ball 
practice : White. P. R. Greene, Packard, J. Greene, 
Piper, Donnell, Snow, E. Briggs, B. Briggs, Morse, 
Sawyer, Clarke, Piper, Abbott, Lawrence, Putnam, 
Kinsman, Hodgson, C. Clarke. Crowley, Davis, 
McGraw, E. Files, Mitchell, Bowers, Small, Hayes, 
Winslow, Jones, Lewis, Purington, Redman, Kings- 
ley, Toole, Day, Giddings, Cushing, Speake, Chand- 
ler.

LIBRARY BOOKS RECENTLY ADDED. 



Veblen, Thorstein. The Theory of Business 
Enterprise. 

The author calls attention to two controlling 
principles in business operations. One of these he 
calls the "machine process" which acts with regular- 
ity and precision, along well defined lines. The 
other principle he has called "business enterprise," 
which leads to the accumulation of large fortunes 
and a powerful central government to control the 
wealth of a nation. A general account but also a 
very careful and novel analysis of business opera- 
tions. (332: V 49) 

Devine, E. T. The Principles of Relief. 

The author of this book is the General Secretary 
of the Charity Organization Society of New York 
City and qualified, on account of his residence and 
knowledge of the poor in a large city, to discuss the 
practical problems of charity. The first part of the 
book is concerned with the general principles of 
poor relief but this is followed by a statement of 
some illustrative cases where help has been given to 
individuals, and also how assistance was rendered 
at the time of great disasters, as in the case of the 
"Chicago fire," "The Johnstown flood" and the 
"Slocum disaster." (339: D 49) 

Pratt, E. A. The Organization of Agriculture. 

This is an expansion of some articles that 
appeared in the London Times during the present 
year. Mr. Pratt aims to show the advance that 
has been made in organization and combination 
among agriculturists and what this has accom- 
plished. It is a general inquiry and includes an 
account of the conditions in North and South 
America, Europe and Australia. Mr. Pratt shows 
the close relation, in the United States, between 
the farmer and the railway. (630 : P 88) 

Sylvester, H. M. Ye Romance of Casco Bay. 

This is the first volume to appear in a set to 
consist, when completed, of five parts. The author 
has given, on the basis of fact, a picture of the 
historic places about Portland. This locality, and, 
indeed, the Maine coast settlements have already 
received ample historical treatment but the present 
work is the most important attempt to deal with 
the historical facts in an imaginative and picturesque 
way. Later volumes will treat of other parts of 
the Maine coast. (M 192:8) 

Phillips, Stephen. The Sin of David. 

A play based on a biblical incident but with the 
characters and setting of the modern story in Eng- 
land, during the period of the Civil War. This is 
the first book by Mr. Phillips to appear since the 
publication, two years ago, "This Ulysses." 
(821.89: P 59) 



COLLEGE TEAS. 



observed this year. Those who will receive invita- 
tions will be residents of Brunswick, Lewiston- 
Auburn, Farmington, and Portland alumni and 
families. 



"KING PEPPER." 

In order to make "King Pepper" a success it is 
necessary to keep it constantly before the minds of 
the public. Be sure to tell all your friends about 
this bright, lively, stirring, tuneful opera, and inter- 
est them in it as much as possible. The opera will 
be presented in Town Hall January 17 and 18, and 
in Augusta January 20. There is certainly no 
reason why a comic opera like this with sixty fel- 
lows in it should not be a great success. 



ALPHA KAPPA KAPPA INITIATION. 

The Alpha Kappa Kappa fraternity of the Med- 
ical School held its annual initiation last Saturday 
afternoon. The initiation was followed by a ban- 
quet at the Inn where forty plates were spread. 
After dinner the evening was given up to speeches. 
Charles E. Hunt, '02, a Senior in the Medical 
School, was toast-master. The guest of the even- 
ing was Grand President Cook of Concord, N. H., 
who delivered an extremely interesting address. 
Among the other speakers were Dr. E. R. Fuller, 
Med. '73, Dr. R. H. Donnel, Med. '01, Dr. J. G. 
Hutchins. Med. '01 ; Dr. E. S. Cummings, Med. 
1900, and H. E. Giddings, Med. '07. The annual 
convention will be held at Cincinnati Dec. 30 and 31. 
The list of initiates is as follows: G. I. Geer, G. A. 
Foster, '05. G E. Tucker, '05, Harold Bibber, G. 
H. Stone, '05, J. G. Potter. L. W. Percy, J. G. 
Greene, '03, S. G. Miller, and T. H. Woodruff, '05. 



The dates of the college teas were decided upon 
at the last faculty meeting as follows : Jan. 9, 23, 
Feb. 20. March 6 and 20. The plan that was car- 
ried out last year in extending invitations will be 



A NEW BOOK BY A BOWDOIN AUTHOR. 

A new book by a Bowdoin author, this fall, is 
"Ideal and Real, the Student's Calendar," by Lor- 
ing Farr, '61, of Manchester. In a neatly printed 
little volume of 200 pages the author, who styles 
himself "the Student." tells how he became able to 
travel the King's highway and points out the way 
for others. In a series of "prologues" for the days 
and years is gathered a harvest of the rarest gems 
of the philosophy and literature of all ages. These 
he explains and comments upon as he holds them 
up for inspection. In its conception and execution 
the book bears ample evidence of the scholarly 
instincts of its author. He has delved deep into 
the treasuries of knowledge and given us the fruits 
of the experiences and observations of many years 
of toil. The result is not a volume to be taken up 
for light reading in an idle hour, but one to be 
studied and re-read by the thoughtful man of leis- 
ure. By means of it Mr. Farr should win wide 
recognition among the scholars of our time. The 
volume, by the way, is styled an "introduction" and 
is to be followed by a second volume recording 
how "the student" realized the ideals expressed in 
this first book. Mr. Farr is a member of the Ken- 
nebec bar, but has lived largely a life of retirement 
and scholarly pursuits at his home in Manchester, 
since his service in the Civil War where he rose to 
the rank of captain.

CLASS OF 1846. 
Mr. J. C. Pickard, Class of '46, was one of the 
most interesting speakers at the Delta Kappa Epsi- 
lon's national convention at Chicago lately. 

CLASS OF 1870. 
Dr. Lucien Howe, the eminent and famous ocu- 
list and eye specialist of Buffalo, New York, was in 
Brunswick for two days last week and visited the 
campus. He was very much interested in the new 
Physiological Laboratory of the college and con- 
tributed a handsome gift to help it in its work. 

Few men have taught in one school as long as 
the late William E. Frost of Westford, Mass., whose 
sudden death occurred Nov. 30. For 32 years Prof. 
Frost had been the principal of Westford Academy 
where he was highly successful in his work and 
was beloved by all. He was a native of Norway, 
Maine, where he was born in 1842, and after grad- 
uating from Bowdoin in 1870 he taught the High 
School in Gardiner for a year. Before entering 
Bowdoin, Mr. Frost served in the Civil War, being 
a member of Co. H, 23d Me. Inf. In college his 
chum was D. S. Alexander, a Richmond boy, now 
of Buffalo, N. Y., who has been a member of Con- 
gress since 1897. Mr. Frost was an ideal teacher, 
and of the thousands whom Maine has given to 
Massachusetts none ever won a bigger place in the 
hearts of his pupils or was more highly esteemed in 
the community where he labored. He died in the 
harness, his death coming from heart failure as he 
stood before one of his classes. His son Francis 
A. Frost, Bowdoin, '94, is a successful New York 
journalist, being now on the staff of the Evening 
Telegram. 

CLASS OF 1874. 
Mr. Horace W. Philbrook, a lawyer and at one 
time Superintendent of Schools in San Francisco, 
who is a native of Brunswick and a graduate of 
Bowdoin in 1874, is in town on his first return to 
his home town and Alma Mater since he went West 
more than twenty-five years ago. Mr. Philbrook 
has been very successful in his profession. 

CLASS OF 1877. 
Charles W. Morse, the ice king of the Kennebec, 
is now heading a company to build the New York 
and Portchester (L I.) Railroad. 

CLASS OF 1881. 
Hon. James P. Baxter, h. '81, was re-elected 
mayor of Portland, last Monday by a handsome 
majority. 

CLASSES OF 18S4 AND 1887. 
William K. Hilton. '84, of Damariscotta, and 
Hon. Harry B. Austin, '87, of Phillips, are putting 
up lively contests for places on Governor Cobb's, 
'77, council. The fight for the places on the Gov- 
ernor's Council is always of interest, as" the contest 
as a general thing takes in prominent men. 



CLASS OF 1884, MED. 1884. 
John Edwin Walker, who has been practicing in 
Thomaston, has been appointed physician at the 
Maine State Prison, by the new warden, Bernes O. 
Norton. 

CLASS OF 1885. 

Mr. John A. Peters has lately been appointed 
judge of the municipal court of Ellsworth. 

MEDICAL CLASS OF 1892. 

Exciting and adventurous indeed has been the 
career of Dr. Salustiano Fanduiz, a native of San 
Domingo and a graduate of the Maine Medical 
School, whose whereabouts have at last been 
located after a silence of three years. Dr. Fanduiz 
received his medical diploma in 1892 and practiced 
medicine for a few years here in Brunswick, and 
then returned to Barahona, San Domingo Island, 
where he owned a salt mine. He purchased a large 
farm and sought to work it on American methods 
but became mixed up in political affairs. He had 
carried on a regular correspondence with Brunswick 
friends since his leaving town until about three 
years ago when his letters suddenly ceased and no 
more was heard from him, and it was generally 
supposed that he was dead. Last week, however, a 
friend received a letter stating that he had just been 
released from prison where he had been confined as 
a political prisoner since August, 1901. The doctor 
was very cautious in his statements and gave no 
hint as to the political party with which he was 
affiliated, but it is believed that he is one of Jim- 
inez's most trusted lieutenants. Dr. Fanduiz wrote 
that he was going back to Barahona. His many 
friends in Maine will be glad to hear that he is 
alive and well after his exciting adventures.

"THE MAGISTRATE." 

After considerable deliberation the Dramatic Club 
has decided to present as its play this year "The 
Magistrate," by A. W. Pinero. This is a roaring 
farce-comedy of three acts and has been considered 
the best of Mr. Pinero's plays, even superior to "The 
Second Mrs. Tanqueray." "Sweet Lavender," "The 
Notorious Mrs. Ebbsmith," and ''The School-Mis- 
tress." The scene of the play is laid in England in 
modern times. The play was first presented some 
fifteen years ago by a cast including Beerbohm Tree, 
Ada Rehan, John Drew and Edward Terry. 

There are sixteen characters, twelve male and 
four female. 

Mr. Posket. 
Mr. Bullamy, 

Magistrates of the Mulberry Street Police Court. 
Col. Lukyn (from Bengal, retired). 
Capt. Horace Vale (Shropshire Fusiliers). 
Cis Farringdon (Mrs . Posket's son, by her first 

marriage) . 
Achille Blonde (Prop, of the Hotel des Princes). 
Isidore (a waiter). 

Mr. Wormington (chief clerk at Mulberry Street). 
Inspector Messites, 
Sergeant Lugg. 

Constable Harris, Metropolitan Police. 

Wyke (servant at Mr. Posket's). 
Agatha Posket (late Farringdon, nee Verrinder). 
Charlotte (her sister). 
Beatie Tomlinson (a music teacher). 
Popham (servant at Mr. Posket's). 

The plot develops from the fact that Mrs. Posket 
at the time of her marriage, concealed her real age 
from Mr. Posket, thus reducing the age of her son, 
Cis, from nineteen to fourteen. Cis appears to be very 
precocious for a boy of fourteen, and the advanced 
state of his tastes is the cause of much wonderment 
and admiration on the part of his step-father. In 
the first act Charlotte, Mrs. Posket's sister, arrives 
for a visit, heartbroken because of the recent break- 
ing off of her engagement to Capt. Vale. Mr. 
Posket receives a note from his old school-mate, Col. 
Lukyn, whom he has not seen for years, accepting an 
invitation to dine. Mrs. Posket recognizes in Col. 
Lukyn the Capt. Lukyn who was god-father to her 
child at his christening nineteen years before in 
India. She is much perturbed for fear he will dis- 
close dates to Mr. Posket at their meeting. She and 
her sister start off immediately to head him off. Cis 
proposes to Mr. Posket an evening at the Hotel des 
Princes. Mr. Posket is much astounded at the. prop- 
osition but is finally persuaded to accompany the boy 
in order to put an end to his foolishness, as he says. 



The second act opens at the Hotel des Princes 
where Cis and Mr. Posket have been persuaded to 
sup in an adjoining room from Cis's usual haunt, 
since a military gentleman who used to occupy the 
room and has not been in it for twenty years, wishes 
to dine there with a friend. These gentlemen 
prove to be Col. Lukyn and Capt. Vale. Not finding 
the colonel at his lodgings Mrs. Posket and her sis- 
ter follow him to the Hotel and are ushered in, 
Capt. Vale retreats to an adjoining balcony. In this 
scene some good fun is introduced including the 
drenching of Capt. Vale on the balcony; the meeting 
and reconciliation of the Captain and Charlotte ; 
Mrs. Posket's recognition of the voices in the 
adjoining room; the raid on the Hotel by the police; 
the concealment of Cis and Mr. Posket in the same 
room with the other party, Mr. Posket in the dark- 
ness, seeking shelter under the same table that 
shields Mrs. Posket ; the entrance of the police ; the 
escape of Cis and Mr. Posket, and the arrest of the 
others. 

The third act opens in the anteroom of the Mul- 
berry street police court. Mr. Posket enters in a 
very dilapidated condition having been on the run all 
night. Some good humor is introduced here by 
Lugg's buying Mr. Posket a red necktie. Posket is 
astonished at hearing of Lubyn's connection with the 
raid on Hotel des Princes. Lukyn, seeking an inter- 
view before court opens, is admitted. Posket, think- 
ing to ease his own conscience thereby, delivers him 
a sound lecture. Lykyn, of course, does not know 
that Posket was at the Hotel the previous evening, 
and intends to tell him the real names of his female 
companions but is so incensed at Posket's lecture 
that he changes his mind. The culprits are brought 
into court and Posket in all ignorance makes the 
women unveil. In the excitement and commotion 
that follows, he sentences the whole four to seven 
days in the House of Correction without option of 
a fine. When the clerk tells him what he has done 
he collapses and has to be carried home. Bullamy, 
Posket's colleague on the bench, straightens the 
matter out by declaring that the whole party were 
Cis's guests and he, having a room at the hotel, could 
entertain after hours. The family arrive home 
about the same time, and Posket faces a whirlwind 
of trouble including the exposure of his presence at 
the Hotel by Isidore, the waiter. The play ends 
w.th a final happy gathering together of all the loose 
ends. 

The play is admirable, the humor is delicious, the 
interest is intense and the cast well-balanced. The 
production is well adapted to the requirements of 
amateurs, and especially of college dramatics. The 
Williams Club presented it very successfully last 
season. 

The trials will be held this afternoon in Banister 
Hall. The scenes on which the parts will be tried are 
already posted. Everybody turn out and help make 
this play a success.

PROF. ROBINSON'S TRIP. 

Prof. F. C. Robinson plans to leave Brunswick 
the first week in January in order to attend the 
meeting of the American Public Health Association 
which is held in Havana, Cuba, in the second week 
of the month. This association consists of men 
prominent in health work in Canada, United States, 
Mexico, and the Republic of Cuba, and in particular 
those connected with state boards of health, and 
government health work. Professor Robinson is a 
member of the executive committee of this associa- 
tion, and is to read a paper on "Disinfection." The 
meetings are held during the whole of the second 
week of January. Representatives from the gov- 
ernments of the West India Islands, and Central 
American States have been invited to attend the 
meeting and the principal subject of discussion will 
probably be "Diseases of Tropical Countries." 
Professor Robinson represents the Maine State 
Board of Health. Mrs. Robinson will accompany 
him on the trip. They will be away about three 
weeks. Definite arrangements for his classes have 
not been completed yet.

CHESS ASSOCIATION. 

A meeting of those who were interested in the 
forming of a chess organization was held at the Psi 
Upsilon House December eighth, and the matter 
thoroughly discussed. It was thought best not to 
organize a club at present, but instead to form an 
association for the purpose of holding tournaments. 
The following officers were elected : President, 
James W. Sewall; Vice-President, John W. Riley; 
Secretary and Treasurer, G. Carroll Soule ; Execu- 
tive Committee. James W. Sewall, Tohn W. Riley,

THE FIRST COLLEGE TEA. 

The first college tea for 1905 will be held in the 
Alumni Room of Hubbard Hall on January 9, the 
first Monday of the term. The special guests of the 
dav will be Brunswick friends. The committee for 
the tea consists of Mrs. Hyde, Mrs. Lee, Mrs. Rob- 
inson, and Miss Chapman. The students are all 
invited to attend and should not fail to do so, as this 
is one of the features of undergraduate life.

PHI CHI INITIATION. 

The Gamma Chapter of the Phi Chi Medical 
Fraternity held its annual initiation and banquet at 
the Falmouth Hotel, Portland, Friday, December 
16, 1904. The initiating ceremonies occupied the 
afternoon hours, and at eight-thirty o'clock in the 
evening, the united chapter to the number of sev- 
enty, sat down to the delicately prepared tables. 
After dinner, the president, Mr. Fred M. Smith, 
called the chapter to order, and introduced as the 
speaker of the evening. Dr. Charles M. Greene of 
Boston. Dr. Greene spoke to considerable length on 
"The Application of Obstetrics to the Principles of 
Surgical Asepsis." The subject was one of deep 
interest to both the honorary and undergraduate 
members, and was handled by Dr. Greene in a very 
masterly and instructive manner. 

Dr. Stephen H. Weeks, for the fraternity, replied 
to Dr. Greene in a few pleasing and well selected 
words. 

The honorary members present were : Dr. S. H. 
Weeks, h., '89, Portland; Dr. E. J. McDonough, 
'92. Portland; Dr. H. H. Brock, '90, Portland; Dr.

MASSACHUSETTS CLUB. 

The second regular meeting of the Massachu- 
setts Club for this year was held Saturday. Decem- 
ber 10. with Wilson, Tobey, and McMichael. Six- 
teen members were present and some important busi- 
ness was transacted. The club decided to hold a 
banquet at some hotel in Boston during the Christ- 
mas holidays. Any undergraduates or alumni who 
may be in the city at that time are cordially invited 
to attend. As the Christmas vacation is generally 
a busy time for "prep." school men, the club decided 
that it would not hold the Smoker for prospective 
sub-Freshmen until the April vacation. This was 
the plan which was followed out last year, and. as it 
proved very successful it was deemed best to pursue 
the same course this year. The Committee of 
Arrangements for the banquet is composed of Hope- 



well, '07, Powers, 'o'6, and Chandler, '08. The 
Orient wishes the club success and hopes that the 
fellows who may be in Boston will accept the club's 
invitation to attend. 



Christian Hssociation litems. 



The Thursday evening meeting of the Associa- 
tion for December 8 was led by Webber, '06. The 
subject, "Making the best of one another," was of 
immense value to a body of men who like ourselves 
are in daily touch with so many friends. If we only 
might realize that like attracts like and that we can 
draw the often hidden noble qualities from our fel- 
lows only as we manifest them in ourselves. Is it 
not true that the only true friendship is that which 
has for its basis the fundamental principles of 
religion? 

SUNDAY SERVICE. 

The Association was very fortunate in securing 
for its after chapel services of Sunday, December 
11, Kenneth Mc Arthur, the President of the Har- 
vard Association. The essential manliness and 
wholesomeness of his talk was such as could hardly 
fail to impress his hearers. He seemed to compre- 
hend at once the situation in Bowdoin and went to 
the root of the Association movement and explained 
its purpose and its growth to Bowdoin fellows. 
From his talk one fact stood out pre-eminently : 
namely that the Association movement is one that 
merits the support of the best blood in our colleges. 
It is a movement which, setting aside any religious 
grounds, is worthy of the allegiance of every man in 
every institution in the country. And yet although 
it has its athletic and philanthropic side, it has a side 
even more important which is fundamentally relig- 
ious — religious in a modern, wholesome, progressive, 
scholarly way. 

It is not an Association for narrow-minded, 
bigoted men; for it contains the free thought and 
good fellowship of our colleges and universities, 
which holds that even in the worst there is good 
and gives to each the credit of honesty in his opin- 
ions. Mr. McArthur and his talk were most cer- 
tainly of this type. One of the pleasing features of 
the service was a solo rendered by Packard, '08. 

ASSOCIATION WORK IN BATH. 

On Tuesday, December 13, the Association 
organized a Bible Class composed of fellows in the 
Bath High «School. This seems to open a promis- 
ing field for the Association to enter. The value of 
the right influence which a college man should exert 
over the preparatory school men is very great. The 
class will be conducted by Ralph Webber, '06. There 
are many directions in which the Association work 
may be extended in Bath. The first and most likely 
of execution is a music class ; but there is also an 
opportunity for fellows to try their hands at all kinds 
of practical work in elocution, boxing, fencing and 
various other work. There is a very great likelihood 
that if the work in Bath is successful it will be 
extended to Portland and possibly to Lewiston. 
Here is a work which is not only very entertaining 
but religious in a very practical sense of the word.

A Review. 



It is probably not too 
sweeping a statement to say 
that the present Senior Class has seen more 
changes in Bowdoin College than any class 
since the foundation of the institution. 
Indeed, a member of the Freshman Class who 
is not acquainted with Bowdoin's history 
would find it hard to realize how many of the 
good things that he now enjoys are a recent 
addition to the college. This is true not only 
of material construction, but of methods and 
customs as well. As regards new buildings, 
the magnificent Hubbard Library of which we 
are so proud, is, of course, the most impor- 
tant, having been opened for the first time 
two years ago. The beautiful Memorial gates 
which adorn two sides of our campus are other 
things which have come to us during the past 
three years. The splendid Hubbard grand- 
stand is yet another structure that has been 
built since the members of '05 were Freshmen. 
Three beautiful fraternity houses have also 



been added to the college, — things which were 
novelties four years ago. In addition to all 
these there have been a large number of 
smaller improvements almost too numerous to 
mention. On the side of curriculum and 
methods there have been changes equally 
great. The elective system has been adopted, 
embodying as it does the modern idea of 
extending the privilege to the .-.tudent of 
choosing those studies he may desire during 
the greater part of his college course. Then 
there has come the adoption of the semester 
system of dividing the school year into two 
instead of three terms, as is done in the lead- 
ing colleges of the country. During the past 
year Bowdoin has joined the New England 
Intercollegiate Certificate Association, accept- 
ing students on certificates from first-class 
preparatory schools. 

Within four years intercollegiate debating 
has been taken up and debating work made an 
important work in the college curriculum. 
New chairs have been established and many 
new courses opened, adding greatly to the 
opportunities for the student in every branch 
of work. In the way of minor changes, a 
college band has been organized and will 
doubtless prove a permanent thing. A 
Dramatic Club, Chess Association and sectional 
clubs have been formed, all of which bid fair 
to do good work for the college. A number 
of college customs, such as Night Shirt Parade 
and Chapel Rushes, have been abolished, and 
better ones substituted in their place. Frater- 
nity and class spirit have given way to college 
spirit. All in all, there have been many 
changes, and the most p'easing thing about 
them is, that they are all in the right direction. 
And in conclusion we cannot refrain from 
voicing the sentiments of all that Old Bowdoin 
as we have known it in the past, is rapidly 
thrust aside to allow the new Bowdoin to take 
its place in the front rank of American institu- 
tions of learning. 



Athletic The continually recurring 

Subscriptions, difficulty of collecting ath- 
letic dues brings before us the need of a more 
perfect system of securing money for our ath- 
letic teams. No season passes by in any branch 
of our athletics in which the manager, no mat- 
ter how hard he may work, does not lose a 
large sum by being unable to collect of the 
men who have subscribed. It is a lamentable 
fact that nine men out of ten will look upon 



BOWDOIN ORIENT.

his athletic subscription as the last bill which 
he is in duty bound to pay, — and — some men 
— think it a pretty good one to evade. With 
this in mind, it would seem that there is a cry- 
ing need for some other system of collecting. 
One of the systems that is suggested is that 
of having a regular amount assessed against 
every man in college, and which would be as 
much a • { part of his college expenses as his 
room rent or tuition. This system is in vogue 
in a number of the big colleges, as indeed it 
is in smaller ones, and is said to be very suc- 
cessful. True, it puts the men who can afford 
to give the largest sums on the same basis 
with the poor fellow who is struggling 
through college and paying his own 
expenses. This is manifestly unjust to the 
poor man, but this evil could be remedied by 
having a subscription paper similar to that in 
use at present in which men can be invited to 
subscribe all they can over and above the reg- 
ular assessment. This, of course, would be 
subject to the same evils which occur at pres- 
ent, but the manager would at least be assured 
of the stated amount which is charged to 
every man, and which would be a great deal 
better than at present. It is to be regretted 
that men will not pay their athletic dues as 
they should, but since they won't they won't, 
and that is all there is to it. Hence it would 
seem to be a good idea to have a different 
system. 



Ringing the 
Chapel Bell. 



One suggestion which the 
Orient advocated last 
spring, and one which we 
would like to see adopted, is the ringing the 
so-called "alarms" during the call for morning 
chapel. These "alarms" consist of a few 
quick strokes one minute before the doors are 
closed, in order that those on the way may- 
know just how much time remains. Up to 
within a very few years this was always the 
custom and, though a little thing, it is one that 
ought to be reinaugurated. 



Sectional Clubs. In 1 ?° better wa y can the 
sectional clubs show their 

true value to the college than to grasp the 

excellent opportunities, presented during the 

coming holidays, to arouse enthusiasm for 

Bowdoin into the members of the graduating 

classes of the preparatory schools. A few 



have already taken steps in this direction and 
we hope that as- many others, as are in any 
possible degree able, will follow in these steps. 
Although these organizations have done very 
creditable work in the past, there is still ample 
room for them to do better in the future. Since 
many of the students are unable to unite their 
aid with others, they consequently neglect to 
take up this work at all. This is disloyalty in 
its worst form. Every student whether 
individually or working with others, should 
strive to instil the belief in every man's heart 
that "Bowdoin is the place for me." If this 
were clone, as it certainly can be done, Bow- 
doin's entering classes would rise to unprece- 
dented numbers. 



College Orchestra. Nothing has been done so 
far this fall towards form- 
ing a college orchestra. This organization has 
played an important part in college life of pre- 
vious years during the winter months, and 
there is no reason why it should not do so this 
year. We have many occasions when an 
orchestra is needed, and it is always a pleasure 
to have the music furnished by the college 
orchestra. There are plenty of students in 
college to form a creditable orchestra, and we 
suggest that steps be taken at once to do so. 



Hockey. 



It seems a shame that after 
Dr. Whittier has taken so 
much trouble to provide a hockey rink for the 
students, that they have taken so little interest 
in the game. Many of the students have not 
even taken the trouble to visit the Athletic 
Field and examine the rink since it has been 
completed. There has, to be sure, been one 
interf raternity game and these two fraternities 
are to be commended for their interest and 
activity in the game. Why the other fraterni- 
ties have failed to follow their example, we do 
not understand. The Orient recommends 
that a regular series of inter-fraternity games 
be inaugurated. From these teams, class teams 
would soon spring up and from them a team 
worthy to represent the college in Intercollegi- 
ate Hockey would be developed. All the large 
coHeges are taking great interest in the game 
as evinced at the last meeting of the Intercol- 
legiate Hockey Association, when an elaborate 
schedule was arranged. Some similar asso- 
ciation may be formed any time by the Maine 



220

colleges. It is the duty of the fellows to see 
that we have a good team when this takes 
place. 



College Teas. 



With the commencement 
of the new year will come 
the College Teas on alternate Monday after- 
noons in the Alumni Room, Hubbard Library. 
Those who attended these pleasant affairs last 
year remember them with pleasure and look 
forward to the first one next term. These 
Teas are simple, informal affairs, given with 
the express purpose of permitting the stu- 
dents to meet socially the members of the 
Faculty and their wives. The absence of all 
form makes them particularly enjoyable and 
delightful. Light refreshments are served 
and a few outside friends invited to make the 
occasion a little pleasanter. We particularly 
wish to call the attention of the Freshmen to 
these Teas and urge them to attend. The stu- 
dent body should feel grateful for the oppor- 
tunities these social affairs afford, and should 
show their appreciation by their attendance. 



Taking Reference There has always been a 
Books. great deal of inconven- 

ience and trouble caused 
by the taking away of reserved books from the 
library, and now that it is drawing near the 
time when those books are most needed, the 
ones who have persisted in this should show a 
little more consideration for others. It is a 
great temptation, to be sure, when a fellow is 
behind in his readings, and needs a certain 
book for a few hours, to borrow it, but he 
should consider first the fact that others may 
be in the same predicament as himself and that 
they need the book as much as he. The books 
are reserved in order that everyone may have 
the same chance of using them and it shows a 
marked degree of selfishness when a fellow 
will take them. It is hoped that in the past 
the books have been borrowed thought'essly, 
and that in the future a little more self-sacri- 
fice may be shown. 



QUILL ELECTIONS. 

At a recent meeting of the Quill Board, the fol- 
lowing men were elected to constitute the board for 
1905 : James W. Sewall. '06, G. Carroll Soule, '06, 
Edward A. Duddy, '07, and Charles W. Snow. '07. 
Two additional members will be elected by the new 
board, no other men having qualified as yet. The 
new board has organized with Sewall as chairman. 



DEBATING NOTES. 

The main fault in the debate in Section A last 
week was failure to keep the exact question dis- 
tinctly in mind. Much of the material on the 
affirmative was either beside the point, or else so 
vague that its bearing on the question was not clear. 
The exact proposition for debate and the relation 
of all material to that proposition must be unmis- 
takable from beginning to end. 

In Section B last week the main speeches 
excelled in rhetorical structure ; they were admira- 
bly phrased. The most conspicuous faults were 
lack of spirit of delivery, and the introduction 
in the rebuttal speeches of too much relatively insig- 
nificant and unrelated detail. The closing speeches 
should deal with the broad issues; minor matters 
should be ignored; every word should count; and 
from an abundance of possible rebuttal material, the 
speaker should select that which has greatest effect 
on the main issues, remembering that his last words 
with the audience should be most effective of all. 

There will be a mass meeting Tuesday evening at 
seven o'clock in Hubbard Hall just before the reg- 
ular debate of Section B for the purpose of making 
arrangements for the debate with Amherst. The 
advisability of adopting a new method for selecting 
judges will be discussed. 

The suggested series of three interclass debates 
for the class championship promises to be successful. 
The students feel that if their work in these debates 
is of sufficient merit, they should receive credit for 
it in the courses in English and Debating. This 
seems a fair and a good plan. 

Amherst has chosen a committee of the Senior 
Class, with Edwin H. Van Etten as chairman, to 
arrange for the Amherst-Bowdoin Debate. Some 
dissatisfaction is now felt at Amherst with the 
present meth
