NO. I 


For the first time this year a new departure 
was tried in the baseball field and a trip was 
arranged for the spring vacation. The trip 
was a decided success both in developing the 
men early and in the number of victories. 
Bowdoin invaded a wholly new territory when 
entering New York and New Jersey, but has 
every reason to feel proud of the showing 
made in that part of the country. 

Fourteen men left Brunswick on Friday, 
March 29, to make the trip. The team went 
first to Fort Andrews at the mouth of Boston 
Harbor. Here the coach, John Irwin, has a 
summer hotel which was opened for the team 
and where the fellows remained until Wednes- 

It is perhaps peculiarly fitting that a Bow- 
doin team should go to Fort Andrews, named 
after the famous Massachusetts War Gov- 
ernor, and one of the distinguished Bowdoin 
graduates. And certainly the Bowdoin fellows 
on the trip were most handsomely treated by all 
the men of the fort. Every courtesy and kind- 
ness was shown us. We were given the use of 
the baths at the Fort, their baseball diamond 
and most hospitably welcomed wherever we 
went. It was a decided treat to see all the 
inside conditions of army life, to inspect the 
guns, see the drills and just how a modern fort 
is conducted. Every man we met, officers and 
privates, appeared to consider a Bowdoin man 
his especial guest. To Major Davis, Lieuten- 
ants Long, Lomax and Winslow, to Sergeants 
Kearney, Humphries, Corporals Willis, Horn- 
bustle, in fact, to all, we feel much indebted, 
and our only wish is that the members of the 
Fort will believe that we appreciated all that 
was done for us. Every Bowdoin man at the 
Island truly went away with a most high and 
favorable impression of the U. S. Army. 

Bowdoin, 2; Fort Andrews, o. 
The first baseball game of the season was 
played on the afternoon of Saturday, March 
30, with the team from Fort Andrews. The 
game was well played for one so early in the 
season and was encouraging as a starter. 
Sparks pitched for Bowdoin and struck out ten 

men. Smith who pitched for the Fort, was 
found quite a proposition, fanning eleven. 



Bowdoin o o i o i — 2 

Fort Andrews o o o o — o 

Bowdoin, ii; Fort Andrews, 6. 
The second game was played with the sol- 
diers on Monday, Bowdoin again winning, by 
the score of eleven to six. McLaughlin pitched 
for Fort Andrews, and Files for Bowdoin. 
The score by innings : 

Bowdoin 4 o i 3 o 3 — 1 1 

Fort Andrews o o 3 o o 3 — 6 

Brown, 8; Bowdoin, 2. 
Bowdoin met with her only defeat on the 
trip in the game with Brown at Providence on 
April 3. The game was by no means as easy 
as the score would indicate, the Bowdoin team 
losing by costly errors at critical places. 
Sparks pitched a nice game having eight 
strike-outs to his credit. During the first three 
innings neither side scored. When Brown came 
to the bat in the last of the fourth, Budlong 
started off with a single, then a combination of 
unfortunate errors of Hanrahan and Stanwood 
and one single by Elrod gave Brown four runs 
before Bowdoin could steady down. In the 
fifth Brown again scored, by means of four 
errors and two base hits, running in three runs. 
Brown again scored in the sixth. Bowdoin 
secured her two runs in the seventh. An 
error by Jones placed Harris on first, Abbott 
received a pass, and a hit by Bower scored 
two men. Manter, Brown and Hanrahan 
made a pretty double in the eighth. The sum- 
mary :

On Thursday afternoon, April 4, Bowdoin 
won a decisive victory over Fordham Univer- 
sity at Fordliam Heights, New York. The 
game was exciting throughout. Bowdoin hit 
a fast pace from the first and kept it up 
throughout the game. In the first inning 
Fordham scored two errors. The first man 
up received a pass, and an error by Files put 
two men on bases. A single by Coffin with 
two out scored these two runs. In the first 
of the second Bowdoin scored one run, Files 
reaching first on a pretty hit and was scored 
by an error of Mahoney. Fordham failed to 
score in her part of the inning. In the first 
of the third Bowdoin cinched the game by 
winning in four runs. Abbott led off with a 
base hit, an error by the catcher and another 
at first put Stanwood and Bower on. Abbott 
was now out at the plate on a ground ball, 
and Files reached first, making three men on 
bases. Hanrahan came to the bat and made 
a pretty hit which scored Stanwood and 
Bower. Lawrence sacrificed, which advanced 
Hanrahan a base, and then Files and Hanra- 
han both scored on an error to third. Manter 
got on bases, but Sparks was put out at first 
retiring the side. 

No more scoring was done until in the last 
of the fourth Fordham secured two more 
runs on two errors by Manter. This was all 
the scoring Fordham did. Bowdoin added 
another run in the eighth on a hit by Hanra- 
han followed by a hit by Manter. In the ninth 
Bowdon added two more runs, Harris mak- 
ing a two-base hit and Stanwood and Bower 
each a single. Bowdoin played swift ball 
throughout, making but two errors and hitting 
very hard and safe. Files pitched a fine game, 
having 8 strike-outs to his credit. A consider- 
able crowd of graduates were present at the 
game and showed their enthusiasm by spirited 
cheering throughout.

On Friday, April 5, Bowdoin travelled over 
to New Jersey and played the final game of 
the trip, winning from the strong Seton Hall 
College team at South Orange. Bowdoin led 
from the start. The team hit remarkably 
hard this day. Scamman pitched the first six 
innings after which he was relieved by 
Sparks. During the first two innings neither 
side scored. Bowdoin scored one in the third 
on a single by Stanwood and Files, three times 
in the fifth on base hits by Stanwood and Han- 
rahan, and a long three-base hit by Files, 
again in the sixth on two two-baggers by 
Manter and Abbott, and again in the seventh 
on a single by Bower. Seton Hall got her 
score in the eighth on a base hit and error. 
Bowdoin had eleven hits in the game for a 
total of fifteen bases. The summary :

A story of the woods, and one of the sea; 
an appreciation of Wordsworth as a teacher, 
and one of Thackeray as a philosopher ; a posy 
of medieval lyrics, and the translations of 
them into modern English; a poem of love, 
and one of imaginative moral suggestion ; 
these, with the Gray Goose Tracks, and the 
comments of the Postman, make up the con- 
tents of the March Quill. 

A Woods Tragedy is the story of a stubborn 
fight, in the waters of Caribou Lake, between 
a cow moose and a hungry bear. It is put into 
the mouth of an old Penobscot trapper, and is 
told in a lively, picturesque style that is inter- 
esting and efifective. The sympathy of the 
reader is sure to be with the moose defending 
her young calf, and so it is worth while to 
record that the result of the fight was a bear- 
skin rug in a Philadelphia home. 

The Message of Wordsworth has been 
heard, at least in substance, in Memorial Hall, 
where it was awarded the Sixty-Eight Prize. 
It is a just and thoughtful statement of the 
teaching of Wordsworth in regard to the con- 
duct of life, and particularly in its application 
to the present conditions of American life. 
The subject is more important than popular, 
and the treatment of it in this brief essay is 
sympathetic and forcible. 

In Thackeray as a Philosopher, the writer 
does little more than hint at the grounds for 
thus classifying Thackeray. Of course, in 
these days when the word 'philosophy' is 
employed with so much looseness, and every 
kind of writer, from Plato to Mr. Dooley, is 

likely to be called a philosopher, it would not 
be difficult to make out a case for Thackeray ; 
but to establish his claim to that designation 
requires a little closer grappling with the 
theme than was, perhaps, possible within the 
limits of this brief article. 

The Men of Gloucester tells, in a form that 
is partly narrative, of the hardships and perils 
of the Gloucester fishermen. It is the work 
of an alert and sympathetic, rather than a viv- 
ifying, imagination ; though there are touches 
of dialect and description that are graphic and 

Medieval Lyrics are presented in the orig- 
inal Latin, and in English translation. The 
first law of rhythmical translation, according 
to Rossetti, is, "Thou shalt not turn a good 
poem into a bad one." The law is not violated 
in the case before us, and, indeed, is hardly 
applicable, because the original poems are not 
good ones. They have a certain interest, but 
it is chiefly historical. The translators, by a , 
judicious use of freedom in translation, have 
made as much as possible out of their material. 
The poem "To — " shows a greater sensi- 
tiveness to emotion, and to certain aspects of 
nature, than to rhythm and cadence. It has 
merits, but they are those of thought rather 
than of form. 

Ad Astra expresses a pleasine conception 
in graceful and musical lines. It is not a new 
idea, that a 'jesting Fool' may have tender and 
deep thoughts; Shakespeare has taught us 
that; but in this little poem the idea is given 
a suitable setting, and a poetic utterance. 

Mozart, Patrick Henry, and the rest of 
them, in Gray Goose Tracks, hit upon rather a 
slender tcfpic for their symnosium, but Dr. 
Johnson makes one remark which justifies his 
reputation for good sense, — "Let us not seek 
to perpetuate an evil custom bv clothing it 
with the maeic name of Tradition." 


The college asks every man to fill out the 
Expense and Earnings blanks this week and 
hand them in at once. The failure of a few 
men to do this definite service to the college 
will block the whole investigation and delay 
the publication of the report, which should be 
issued and distributed at once. The value of 
this report, if it is based on complete returns, 
is beyond question, and it is a duty of the stu- 
dents to help the college in its compilation.

Possibly one of the 
Introductory unfortunate conditions in 
the conduct of yearly insti- 
tutions, such as of necessity is a college period- 
ical, is the fact that each year new men must 
assume the duties of directorship just when 
the older men have had service enougfh to ren- 
der their experience valuable in conducting- a 
paper. Regarding the paper wholly from a 
literary standpoint it would certainly be much 
better if a consistent, regular policy controlled 
it from year to year. But this, of course, is 
obviously impossible ; and when we as the new 
board assume our duties, it is not for us to 
commence by stating plans and ideas for a 
paper which has already had so long an exist- 
ence as the Orient, but rather for us to say 
that it will be our desire to maintain the same 
general lines of policy and to try to reach the 
same plane of excellence which we believe the 
Orient has generally maintained. If this line 
of policy were to be stated as introductory, we 

might simply say as follows, that we hope to 
keep the paper up-to-date in its news depart- 
ment; to increase the alumni department and 
make it really interesting to the graduates ; 
and to advocate editorially for the college 
more emphasis on the scientific courses as 
looking towards strengthening them in every 
direction ; and in the athletic field, widening 
of the outlook and the extension into out-of- 
state fields. In some directions we may fall 
short, in others perhaps succeed, in all we 
trust that we will be regarded with charity and 
that it will be remembered that the college 
paper is handled only by college undergradu- 
ates as an outside duty. 

About one month ago the 
The Bugle faculty rcommended to the 

president of the Sopho- 
more Class that an effort be made to limit the 
1909 Bugle Assessment to five dollars for each 
member of the class, and to limit the total cost 
of the Bugle to $500. This action was taken 
after considerable deliberation and chiefly out 
of regard for the reputation of the college. 

It has admittedly been the policv of each 
board to try to go the preceding board "one 
better," and this series reached its highest 
point in last year's Bugle. No doubt the 1907 
Bugle was the most elaborate Bugle that Bow- 
doin has ever produced, but it cost $1,200, and 
each member of the class was assessed nine 
dollars. And further, there have been sold up 
to date, including the books bought by several 
fraternity chapters for exchanges, but 325 
copies. This means that scarcely enough Bugles 
were sold last year to supply each Bowdoin 
student with one copy, to say nothing of send- 
ing Bugles to friends as a means of advertis- 
ing the college. This was only natural for it 
is hard for any student to buy many "gift 
books" at a dollar each, and it comes especially 
hard on the Junior, who is the most enthusias- 
tic purchaser of his year book, for he has 
already sunk nine dollar in its fortunes. 

One more point. Even when the Bugle does 
get outside of the college, it does not fairly 
represent Bowdoin. For a person seeing an 
up-to-date Bugle first admires it then thinks 
as follows : the book is a fine one, but Bowdoin 
is a small college, and if one class produces 
such a book, assessments must run high at 
Bowdoin. The result is that our Bugles are 
far from fulfilling their obvious purpose of 
favorably advertising the college, for they not 


only reach an extremely limited number of out- 
siders, but to those they do reach they bear a 
false impression. 

To bring the expense of the Bugle within 
rational limits, which are in accordance with 
the general run of Bowdoin expenses and the 
pocketbooks of Bowdoin students, is perfectly 
possible. For instance, the 1906 Bugle, which 
as usual, was considered one of the very best 
at the time of its production, cost but $900. 
And in the opinion of a former Bugle business 
manager, consulted by the Orient, the $500 
limit suggested by the faculty is very reason- 
able, and the expenses may easily be kept 
within it by a few sane changes of policy, it 
perhaps being possible to radically reduce the 
price of the separate copies. The Orient 
hopes that this matter will receive the thought- 
ful attention of every Bowdoin man, especially 
of the present Sophomore Class, whom it 
directly concerns, and in the meanwhile the 
Orient wishes success to the 1908 board, 
which it is understood has already taken steps 
toward a more conservative policy than that 
followed last year. 


To the Editor of the Orient: 

I feel sure that I shall be voicing the sentiment of 
every alumnus who was fortunate enough to be at 
Fordhara Field on Thursday of last week if I thank 
heartily whoever was responsible for that Easter trip 
for the baseball team. It seems to me that it was 
nothing less than an mspiration ; at all events it was 
an inspiration to those of us who have longed (and 
m vain) for ten or twelve years to see a Bowdoin 
team at work. The only thing I can think of that 
would be any better would be to have the opportunity 
come a little later in the season after the various 
teams have struck their gait. If this is impossible, 
however, we shall all be glad of a repetition of this 
season's performance. I am sure also that I am 
not in error in saying that if the game had been on 
Saturday afternoon instead of Thursday and if there 
had been no uncertainty in regard to the date of the 
game, as there was, unfortunately, the number of 
alumni that would have been present would have 
been both a revelation and a happy surprise to the 

The number of Bowdoin men in New York and 
vicinity is rapidly increasing and it would perhaps 
be well worth while to arrange a game or two a year 
in or near New York if for no other reason than the 
increased interest in the college that such a game 
would awaken among them. It seems to me, how- 
ever, that there is another much stronger reason for 
so doing. There are undoubtedly more boys prepar- 
ing for college in Greater New York and its suburbs 
than in any equivalent area in the country. It is true, 
of course, that many of these boys have their future 

college selected several years before graduation and 
that many others come under strong influence from 
one institution or another, but it is also true, I 
believe, that there are many who are undecided up 
to the very last and even then make a decision 
because of some one thing that seemed especially 
attractive in connection with the college finally 
chosen. I can readily see why Bowdoin College 
should be a myth to a boy in this section who has 
had nobody to inform him in regard to it. I find 
that it is a well-known name to him when used in 
connection with achievement in letters or politics or 
some other field of the world's work, but he does 
not think of it as a place where, in addition to the 
educational side, undergraduates have the same inter- 
est in athletics and kindred matters as pervades the 
colleges with whose customs he is more familiar. 
A baseball game or a football game, played almost 
under his nose, with some college whose athletic 
record he is perhaps following closely, would do 
more than almost anything else to make him familiar 
with the name of Bowdoin. 

A chance to invite one or more boys to see a 
football game or a baseball game between Bowdoin 
and some college in this locality would be a splendid 
supplement to the efforts some of us are already 
making to introduce these same boys to Bowdoin. 
For this reason particularly I sincerely hope that 
the trip this year may serve to establish a precedent 
and, if this prove to be the case, I am confident thqt 
the college will gain much in the years to come. 

Yours very truly, 

George E. Carmichael, '97.

The two Bowdoin books, "Bowdoin Verse" 
and "Under the Bowdoin Pines," for copies of 
which a subscription paper has been kept dur- 
ing the winter at the Library desk, are just 
out. They are both edited by J. C. Minot, '96, 
and the whole college should feel grateful to 
him for the time and care which he has put 
into their preparation. He should feel well 
rewarded by the results of his labor for he has 
produced sojnething which every Bowdoin 
man will want and prize as soon as he sees it. 

"Bowdoin Verse" contains a few more than 
one hundred poems selected carefully and 
with good taste from those which have 
appeared during the last fifteen years in the 
undergraduate publications of the college, 
some of the poems being contributed by 
alumni, but most of them having been written 
by students while undergraduates. It has been 
the aim of the editor in selecting the poems, 
not only to consider their merit, but also to 
favor those in which the college or some phase 
of college life was taken as a theme. 

"Under the Bowdoin Pines" is a book of 



Bowdoin stories compiled from those which 
have appeared in the Bowdoin Quill. The 
book contains nineteen stories of college life 
"under the pines" and three historical articles 
which relate to the Thorndike Oak, Longfel- 
low and Hawthorne. 

The books are very attractively bound, and 
one contains as a frontispiece a picture of a 
path through our pine woods, while the other 
has a new and artistic view of the chapel. 
Only five hundred copies of each volume have 
been printed and as more than three hundred 
copies of each already have been bought by 
the alumni, students desiring copies should 
apply for them immediately at the Library or 
of W. M. Harris, '09. The books cost $1.25 
separately, or $2.00 for both if bought

Frank L. Bass, from Delta Kappa Epsilon ; 
Seth G. Haley, from Zeta Psi ; Francis R. 
Upton, Jr., from Psi Upsilon ; William S. Lin- 

nell. Beta Theta Phi; Ralph H. Files, from 
Kappa Sigma; Edgar F. Sewall, from Delta 

The committee that made the arrangments 
for the party was composed of G. W. Craigie, 
'07; P. R. Shorey, '07; R. L. Kinney, '08; H. 
Atwood, '09, and H. W. Davis, '10.

The Bowdoin team at Fordham was most loyally 
supported by a Bowdoin contingent although so far 
away from home. Owing to a misunderstanding in 
regard to the day of the game, possibly fewer were 
there than would have been but as it was a goodly 
number of Bowdoin graduates were out to cheer on 
the team in its entrance into these new fields. About 
thirty alumni were present. 

The following is modest notice recently printed by 
the Thornton Academy Periodical :

have a chance to see a game with this college at 

Last Wednesday evening Bowdoin was well rep- 
resented in cast of the "Elopement of Ellen," which 
was presented in the Town Hall. The play was 
given under the auspices of the Young People's 
Union of the Universalist Church, and was excel- 
lently played. The men on the cast were L. C. Whit- 
more, '04, J. B. Draper, '10, W. S. Linnell, '07, L. H. 
Fo-x, '06. 

Much interest is being felt by the students in a 
Dickens Carnival, for which arrangements are being 
made by a committee of ladies connected with the 
Saturday Club, and which is to be given in the Town 
Hall on the evening of Thursday, May 2. It is to 
be a benefit for the Curtis Memorial Library of 
Brunswick, so beside giving the promise of a good 
time, is the incentive of helping a worthy object. 
This carnival bids fair to be the social event of the 
year, for both the college and the town, and no stu- 
dent will probably fail to be present. 


During the vacation Professor Woodruff attended 
the meeting of the New England Classical Associa- 
tion at Andover, Mass. 

On April 5 Professor Robinson attended the meet- 
ing of the New England Section of the Society of 
Chemical Industry and was elected to the executive 
committee. * 

Professor Robinson was recently elected to the edi- 
torial board of the American Journal of Public 
Hygiene which is published in Boston. 

Last Sunday Professor Woodruff preached at the 
West Church in Portland. 

Professor Chapman and Professor Robinson were 
at the meeting of the Bowdoin Club of Boston on

Last Saturday evening Professor Carr of the Uni- 
versity of Maine spoke to the members of the 
Deutscher Verein at their meeting in Hubbard Hall. 
His subject was "Adolf Pichler," a Tyrolean poet of 
the 19th century. Professor Carr's word-pictures of 
the Alpine scenery were extremely vivid and his 
narration of the plots of Pichler's principal works 
held the closest attention of everyone present. At 
the close of the address refreshments were served 
in the Verein room after which an adjournment was 
taken to the Theta Delta Chi House where a most 
social time was enjoyed. 



We have a proposition by which a good man can, in 
three months, make more than enough to defray his 
college expenses for the next year. 

There is no outfit to buy and no catechism which you have to learn. 
All you need is your own gray matter and a little help from us from 
time to time. 

If you will write us, we will gladly explain how we 

propose to make your next college year free from 

financial worry.

large measure to replace their destroyed property. 


Just before the Easter Recess at the last meeting 
of a very successful year, the Association listened to 
the sixth of the series of talks on the Ethics of the 
Profession. It was given by Professor W. T. Foster 
on "Teaching," and was much appreciated. After the 
lecture a business meeting was held at which it was 
voted that a committee be appointed to collect old 
clothes and magazines from the students, and to send 
the collections to Dr. Grenfell on the Labrador 
Coast. The elections for next year were then held 
an.d resulted as follows : 

President — John F. Morrison, '08. 

Vice-President — Richard A. Lee, '08. 

Treasurer — Gardner W. Cole, '09. 

Corresponding Secretary — Harold H. Burton, '09. 

Recording Secretary — Robert D. Morss, '10. 


Philip R. Shorey, captain of the 'Varsity Track 
Team, felt obliged last week to resign his position, 
and Dwight S. Robinson, '07, was elected by the 
team to take his place. Shorey was offered an excel- 

lent position on one of the Eastern Steamship Com- 
pany's steamers and so has arranged to be absent 
for the spring, although he will be present to grad- 
uate with his class in June. Shorey will run on the 
team this year just the same, and will be in Bruns- 
wick frequently. He has arranged to train while in 
Boston at Cambridge. As he could only be here sel- 
dom, he thought it best not to retain his position as 
captain. D. S. Robinson, the new captain, is a dis- 
tance runner, having won second in the two-mile in 
the Maine Meet in 1904 ; first in the mile and first in 
the two-mile at the Maine Meet, and third in the

NO. 2 


The fourth annual college rally was held in 
Memorial Hall last Thursday evening and 
proved to be the most successful of the rallies 
yet held at Bowdoin. A large number of Bow- 
doin alumni were present, and these with the 
student body and "prep" men made the gath- 
ering a very enjoyable and enthusiastic one. 

Music was furnished by the Bath band — 
and this with the cheering made the historic 
walls of Old Memorial ring with true Bow- 
doin spirit. Linnell, '07, led the cheering. 

As each man entered the hall he was given 
a very attractive souvenir. This was in the 
form of a button or rather badge four inches 
in diameter on which was a picture of old "Joe 
Boyd" surrounded by the words "Men may 
come and men may go, but Joe stays here for- 
ever." A pamphlet of Bowdoin songs was 
also distributed. The speakers were then 
introduced by Chairman Fulton J. Redman, 
'07, who made an able presiding officer. The 
first speaker introduced was Professor Chap- 
man of the Class of '66. He said among other 
things, that when Bowdoin teams played, the 
whole college was behind them. He spoke of 
the necessity of every man in college trying to 
make the teams — to make them for Bowdoin, 
not the trips ; to make them for the college, 
not for the glory of his fraternity. He also 
added a few words concerning the hard prac- 
tice required before contests, labor never 
known to the public. 

The next speaker was Hon. Herbert M. 
Heath, '76, of Augusta, who gave some remi- 
niscences of his college life. He emphasized 
the fact that Bowdoin is the real college of 
manhood, and that more that is worth learn- 
ing is learned from manhood than from books. 
Then he spoke of Bowdoin State officials, and 
said that our present governor is a Bowdoin 
man with the prospects that the next governor, 
whether republican or democratic, will be a 
Bowdoin man. 

The third speaker was H. W. Jarvis, '91, 
who said that Bowdoin men were to be found 
in every large city in the United States — and 
that these alumni were of very great value to 

the Bowdoin men fresh from commencement, 
for Bowdoin men hang together. 

John Clair Minot, '96, spoke briefly and in a 
humorous vein of the brighter side of college 
life, both undergraduate and alumni. He stated 
that he had prepared a more elaborate speech 
but had philanthropically given it over to be 
delivered by the following speaker, Charles T. 
Hawes of Bangor. 

Mr. Hawes can usually be relied upon to 
talk of Bowdoin matters in a way which rouses 
the enthusiasm of Bowdoin men, and was well 
up to his standard on this occasion. He paid 
eloquent tribute to President Hyde, Doctor 
Whittier, and Coaches McClave and Irwin and 
others who had done and are still doing much 
for the advancement of the college in athletics 
and educational lines. He closed with an 
exhortation to all undergraduates to keep the 
college spirit first in their minds, first over 
class and first over fraternity. 

After a short intermission in which punch 
was served and cheers were given, Chairman 
Redman introduced Judge Seiders, '72, of 
Portland, who said, that of the many things a 
man learns at college none are of more value 
than honesty and robust manhood. His address 
was both eloquent and brilliant. 

Coach Irwin aroused much enthusiasm by 
stating that the prospects for a winning base- 
ball team were excellent — that every player on 
the team knew the game, played the game and 
was "game." 

The next speaker was George E. Fogg, '02, 
who spoke on Bowdoin spirit — and said that 
the inscription on the buttons might well have 
read "men may come, and men may go, but 
Bowdoin spirit remains forever." 

Last came Professor Robinson, who in his \ 
usual interesting and informal manner, told 
many witty stories. Among other things he 
said he had suffered twice for the college — 
once as a Freshman and again when he came 
back to college thirty-three years ago as a 
tutor, a position fully as embarrassing as that 
of a Freshman. He added that one has to 
overcome many things to obtain success in life, 
and that the time to begin is in college. 

The gathering broke up to the good old tune 
of Phi Chi. 




Portland, 8; Bowdoin, 3. 

On Friday, April 19, Patriot's Day, Bow- 
doin played two games with the fast Portland 
Independent Team on the Pine Tree Athletic 
Association Park in Portland. The morning 
game was lost to Portland by the score of 
eight to three. Scammon pitched for Bow- 
doin, and did well up to the sixth inning when 
Portland succeeded in batting out a victory. 
In the afternoon Sparks pitched for Bowdoin 
and Williams for Portland. Portland won 
three to two in a well-played game. The day 
was very cold and ill-suited for ball playing.

Bates, 5 ; Bowdoin, 3. 

In a loosely played game on a cold and 
windy day, Bowdoin lost its opening home 
game in an exhibition contest with Bates on 
April 20. Both teams played raggedly at times, 
although the unseasonableness of the weather 
accounts for this to some extent. Bates 
scored two runs in the first inning. A base on 
balls put Bridges on first, he stole second and 
third and scored on Stone's hit. Stone scored 
on a hit by Bowman. Johnson flied out, and 
Bowman was caught by Files to Manter. Jor- 
dan struck out. No scoring was done in the 
second inning, but in the third Bates scored 
twice on two passed balls. In the second half 
of the third Bowdoin scored two runs on an 
error by Bowman, a pass to Bower, and a 
pretty sacrifice by Files followed by a hit by 
Lawrence. Bates scored again in the eighth 
and Bowdoin in the ninth. Bates's elastic eli- 
gibility rules permitted Stone to catch for the 
Bates team, he proving one of the mainstays 
of the visiting tea'm.

Bowdoin, 3; Mercersburg, 3. 

In a well-played game on Monday after- 
noon the Bowdoin and Mercersburg Academy 
team played eleven innings to a tie. The 
Academy team had to leave on the 5.10 train, 
so it was impossible to complete the game. 
Both teams started in rather raggedly, but the 
last part of the game was as pretty an exhibi- 
tion of well-played ball on both sides as could 
be wished. Sparks pitched for Bowdoin and 
proved quite effective, striking out eight men. 
The Mercersburg team played snappy baseball 
from the start to the finish of the game. Each 
team scored one in the first inning. Bowdoin 
added another in the last of the scond, in the 
added another in the last of the second, in the 
Bowdoin made her third run in the fifth and 
Mercersburg tied the score in the eighth.

A new course, to be known as German 9 
and 10, will be inaugurated next year. It will 
be a course in the German drama of the nine- 
teenth century and will consist of very careful 
study of the modern movements in dramatic 
literature. The class will begin with several 
plays of Ibsen and a brief study of his life. 
They will also read at least one of Tolstoi's 
novels and some of the works of Zola and 
Maeterlink. With this as a background, the 
class will begin to read the more important 
dramatic works of the latest period, such as 
selections from Hauptmann, Sudermann, 
Byerlien, Hoffmansthal, Fulda, and others. 

All the German works will be read in the 
original language and a part of the require- 
ment will be to study the dramatic structure of 
each play taken up. This course will be lim- 
ited to those who have had at least two years 
of German in college and only in very excep- 
tional cases will work done in preparatory 
school be accepted. 

The lectures in German, which have been 
given in past years, will be omitted and in 
their place the class will use Kluge's 
"Geschichte der Deutschen Literatin." Side by 
side with this they will study the political his- 
tory of Germany from a text-book which has 
not yet been fully decided upon. The sub- 
ject matter studied in literature will be illus- 
trated by readings from Thomas' "German 
Anthology." The course will be conducted 
entirely in the German language.

An arrangement has been 
Alumni News made by the Orient 
Board in regard to the 
matter of alumni news, which it is confidently 
hoped will satisfy and be advantageous for all 
parties concerned — the alumni, the college, the 
students, and the board. The arrangement has 
been brought about by the kind offer made of 
his services by the Secretary of the General 
Alumni Association. 

The plan is to turn over all the editing of 
alumni notes and obituaries to the Secretary of 
the Alumni Association, who will fill one page 
of each issue with matters of interest to the 
alumni. For instance, this week there is pub- 
lished a list of all the secretaries of the gradu- 
ate classes and from now on as long as the 
arrangement holds there will appear some 
of the usual alumni notes, which will be con- 
fined in each issue chiefly to one or two of the 
graduate classes. 

The Alumni Association is led to undertake 
this work by the feeling that the bond between 

our alumni and the college could be much 
strengthened with benefit to both parties. And 
it is with this especially in view that the notes 
are to be grouped in each issue under one or 
two classes, for the college has appropriated 
money to purchase and to send copies of the 
Orient to the alumni who are not already 
subscribers, but who are members of the class 
directly concerned with the alumni notes in 
that particular issue. 

The Orient is glad to have this opportunity 
to make the paper what it should be to the 
alumni, but it does not want the alumni to feel 
themselves limited to the alumni page. That 
page is merely for the alumni notes, and the 
Orient columns are open to all graduate com- 
munications, the more the better, — and remem- 
ber, we need a college band. 


Bowdoin has just had her 
fourth annual athletic rally 
and the occasion was a 
great success. Now is the time to show that 
the rally did us good. Bowdoin cannot live 
forever on her past reputation. She must be 
doing something in the present. We must 
show a spirit that brings us, one and all, to 
every game, and keeps us there fighting to the 
finish. The old victories were not easy ones, 
and we must win to-day whether the odds on 
us are great or small. The baseball team is 
working hard and the student body is turning 
out well to support it. We must keep this up, 
and there is another thing that needs our at- 
tention and help. 

Two years ago there were more than a hun- 
dred men doing track work, now there are 
seventy. If we are to turn out a team that 
can win the Maine Aleet as it was won two 
years ago, there must be more material from 
which to pick. No man can tell whether or 
not he is fitted for some form of track athlet- 
ics unless he goes to the field to make a try 
and the variety of events is so great that there 
is a chance for everyone. Besides this, in the 
winning of the meet the seconds and thirds, 
which cannot be foreseen, are always very 
important. Any form of track athletics offers 
healthy exercise in the open air and there is 
no reason why twice as many men as there are 
out at present, should not be on the field every 
day. It may take one, two, three, or even four 
years for a man to develop himself into a 
point winner — many will remember as an 
example that point that "Blossom" Schofield 



won last spring in the last event of the Maine 
Meet of his Senior year, after he tried to gain 
that honor during each year of his college 
course. Bowdoin needs every athlete of every 
calibre, and as another college paper puts it 
"no athlete was ever made by absent treat- 
ment,"— and remember we need a college 


On Monday morning at 10.20, Hon. Wil- 
liam J. Bryan, the well-known Democratic 
candidate for United States President, will 
speak to the students of Bowdoin in Memorial 
Hall. He will leave Portland on the 8.15 elec- 
tric, reach Brunswick at 10.15, be received by 
Professor Robinson and Professor A. Johnson 
on behalf of the President and Faculty, and 
taken immediately to Memorial Hall. There 
he will be introduced by Prof. Robinson, and 
will speak to the students. Mr. Bryan will have 
to leave again for Portland on the 11.20. In 
Portland he will be tendered a reception in 
the afternoon, and in the evening will attend 
a banquet, where he will make a short speech 
on the "Political Issues." Later in the even- 
ing, at eight o'clock, he will speak in the Audi- 
torium on the "Average Man." Tickets for 
seats in the auditorium may be bought for 35 
and 50 cents. 

Mr. Bryan is on a two weeks' trip through 
the East, and on this trip he is to be heard by 
three colleges, Dartmouth, Bowdoin, and 
Colby. It is needless to say that the whole col- 
lege will greet him at Memorial Hall. 


On May 3 the ladies of Brunswick will pre- 
sent a "Dickens Carnival" in the Town Hall, 
in which a large number of college men will 
take part. The scheme is to have every one of 
Dickens' characters appear on the stage in 
groups representing the book in which they 
are found. After the appearance of all the 
Dickens characters a social dance will be held. 

The idea of a Dickens Carnival is not an 
entirely new one in Brunswick, since it was 
tried here about fifteen years ago, and 
was one of the most successful entertainments 
that has ever been given in the town. The 
profits of the carnival will go to the Bruns- 
wick Public Library. Besides the entertain- 
ment and dance there will be three booths 
where ice cream, candy and fancy arti- 

cles will be on sale. The booths will be made 
to represent The Maypole Inn from "Barnaby 
Rudge," the "Old Curiosity Shop," and Bof- 
fin's Bower from "Our Mutual Friend." 

A dress reeharsal is to be held in the Town 
Hall on Thursday evening, May 2.

By the kindness of the editorial board, the 
Secretary of the General Association of the 
Alumni is to supply each issue of the Orient 
with a page of items respecting Bowdoin 
graduates. Of these none are more efficient 



and faithful friends of the college than the 
class secretaries. No apology, therefore, is 
needed for printing their post office addresses. 
Every one of them welcomes a letter of news 
from an individual classmate and will share 
it with others. The names of a few nominees 
are included in the list where the compiler 
understands that either a vacancy exists or 
that no class secretary has been chosen.

The Bowdoin Chapter of Delta Upsilon will hold 
a reception and dance on the afternoon and evening 
of- May 10. The committee in charge of the party 
will be R. E. Sawyer, '07, P. G. Bishop, '09, and T. 
C. Cummins, '10. 




Manager Morrison of the Tennis Team 
announces that, as soon as the courts are in 
condition, there will be a tournament for the 
selection of a captain. He wants as many men 
as possible out for the tournament. The four 
best will then play a round robin series, the 
winner of which will be captain of the team 
this year. There will also be an Interschol- 
astic Tournament, open to all Maine prepara- 
tory schools, on May 14, 15, and 16. The 
'varsity schedule will be announced later. 


To the Editor of the Orient: 

Will you permit me through the medium of your 
columns to say a few words to the undergraduate 
body expressive of a feeling which is, I think, uni- 
versal among the alumni of the College, that is, a 
feeling of satisfaction that an athletic team repre- 
senting Bowdoin has this year been brave enough to 
venture out of the usual routine and to undertake an 
invasion of New York State. The value of such a 
trip as that recently taken by the baseball team, in 
widening the athletic reputation of the College, can 
hardly be estimated. The local contests, in which 
local conditions in Maine oblige our teams to 
engage, are, of course, very important ; but in order 
for Bowdoin to hold its proper place in athletics 
among the Colleges of New England our teams 
must be seen more frequently outside the local 

The writer is one of a large number who believe 
that the policy of those in charge of Bowdoin ath- 
letics should look toward fewer contests with the 
Maine Colleges and more with the other small col- 
leges of New England. Much has been said on this 
topic and I hope the movement in the direction 
named has been taken up in earnest. So successful 
a baseball trip as the recent one, when our represen- 
tatives defeated the teams of two colleges noto- 
riously strong in athletics in this vicinity, should 
certainly serve as a precedent for future managers 
to follow. 

Last fall for the first time in many years our 
football team played Wesleyan at Middletown. Are 
we to play the Wesleyan team in the fall of 1907? 
Believe me, every alumnus hopes that such a game 
is being arranged and all the friends of the college 
are watching expectantly for the announcement of a 
definite arrangement to that effect. It is certainly 
true that a contest in football, baseball, tennis, or 
track athletics, with Dartmouth, Amherst, Williams 
or Wesleyan, will do more to determine Bowdoin's 
true athletic standing among the colleges than all 
the contests in which we engage in Maine in an 
entire season. 

Let the good work go on. 

Yours very truly.

Boston, Mass. 

With the completion of the new buildings, which were dedicated September 25th, 1906, this school now has facilities and 
equipment for teaching and research In the various branches of medicine probably unsurpassed In this country. Of the five 
buildings, four are devoted entirely to laboratory teaching and research. The numerous hospitals of Boston afford 
abundant opportunities for clinical Instruction in m- dlciue and surgery. 


A four years' course, open to bachelors of art, literature, philosophy or science, and to persons of equivalent standing, 
leads to the degree of M.D. The studies of the fourth year are wholly elective; they include laboratory subjects, general 
medicine, general surgery and the special clinical branches. 

The next school year extends from September 26, 1907 to June 29, 1908.

Congressman Alexander, '70, recently spent two 
weeks in Louisiana with the Rivers and Harbors 
Committee, visiting the inland waterways of that 
State. His sail up Bayou Teche took him through the 
land of Evangeline, where "the name of Longfel- 
low," he says, in a brief letter to a classmate, "is a 
household word." He adds : "The poet's description 
of the country, with its winding bayous, its fertile 
lands, its delicious climate, and its beautiful roses, 
so abundant as to be without money value, is as 
faithful as if he had wandered along the banks of 
the Teche and tarried at Garden City. Yet he never 
saw this country."

NO. 3 


Bowdoin men enjoved a rare treat, Monday 
morning, when Hon. William J. Bryan, the 
great Democratic leader, addressed them in 
Memorial Hall. Although brief, Mr. Bryan's 
speech was a masterpiece and made a deep 
impression upon the students and others who 
composed his large audience. 

Mr. Bryan, upon his arrival, was escorted 
to the hall by Professors Allen Johnson and 
F. C. Robinson. Professor Robinson presented 
the speaker, referring to his relations to this 
college first as a friend and secondly as a ben- 
efactor, Mr. Bryan being instrumental in 
securing to Bowdoin the Philo Sherman Ben- 
nett prize fund. 

Mr. Bryan touched upon three subjects, pub- 
lic speaking, ambition, and faith. He held that 
an orator is made rather by contact with great 
events rather than by any inborn talent. The 
orator should impress upon the audience his 
subject rather than his personality. Eloquence 
he considered to be composed of intimate 
information on, and enthusiasm for, the sub- 
ject in hand. Clearness and brevity of state- 
ment were the best services one could render 
to the cause of truth. 

In regard to ambition, the second topic of 
his speech, Mr. Bryan held that ambition is 
especially commendable in a young man, but 
only so long as he has a laudable controlling 
purpose. He spoke, with deep feeling, in favor 
of universal education, arguing that civiliza- 
tion can only reach its highest point when the 
greatest number are perfectly developed both 
in mind and heart. But selfish ambition he 
believed to be unworthy and ineffective, since 
only by unselfish service can a man become 

Faith he believed to be a very important ele- 
ment in success. First, faith in oneself ; not 
egotism or vanity, but the higher confidence 
which enables one to undertake great works. 
Secondly, faith in one's fellow-man, for, at 
bottom, the human heart is a true democracy 
and great deeds cannot be achieved without 
identifying oneself with this democracy. But 
without faith in God these other two go for 
little. There is a wide gulf between the man 

who does what is right because other men are 
watching him and the man who does what 
is right from a sense of duty to an omnipotent 
and personal God. He who has faith in such 
a God fights a winning fight and his oppo- 
nents, lacking this faith, must be put to rout. 

Owing to the close train connection the 
students did not have time to assemble for a 
demonstration at the station after the speech. 
Without exception, however, the students were 
both pleased and gratified by Mr. Bryan's visit 
and would gladly have listened to a far longer 

The gentlemen who were on the platform 
with Mr. Bryan were Hon. George Fred Wil- 
liams, member of Congress 1891-3, and Demo- 
cratic candidate for Governor of Massachu- 
setts, 1895, 1896, 1897, and Sherifif Pennell of 
Cumberland County. Mr. Bryan was accom- 
panied on his trip by Col. A. C. Drinkwater of 
Boston, and Mr. Alexander Troup of Con- 


The annual debate between Bowdoin and 
Syracuse was held in Crouse Hall, Syracuse, 
Wednesday, April 24. Mr. Hancock presided. 
The question for debate was, "Resolved, That, 
granting the willingness of Cuba, the annexa- 
tion of Cuba to the United States would be for 
the interests of the United States." Bowdoin 
had the affirmative, Syracuse, the negative. 

The first speaker for the affirmative was 
Redman, who said that the keynote of the 
present situation in Cuba is uncertainty and 
that annexation to the United States will sup- 
ply stability in place of this uncertainty. He 
quoted the examples of Flawaii, the Philip- 
pines and Porto Rico and the testimony of 
men in the Department of Commerce and 
Labor and the Bureau of Statistics to show 
that under annexation and the consequent sta- 
bility a highly developed Cuba would ensue, 
which would import from the United States 
$200,000,000 worth of products annually. He 
concluded with the statement that we have to 
sell what Cuba needs to buy. 

The first speaker for the negative was Ell- 
wood, who in a very eloquent manner, tried to 


feoWbollsf okifeNt 

show that the United States would be violating 
her sacred honor by annexing Cuba on account 
of her four previous promises not to do so. He 
closed by expressing the hope that the brilliant 
page in our national history caused by our 
freeing Cuba from Spain would never be 
blotted by her annexation to the United States. 

The second speaker for the affirmative, Rob- 
erts, beean by indicating that the four promises 
referred to were not promises but were expres- 
sions of intention and that, under the question, 
Cuba is willing, a sufficient change is made in 
the circumstances to permit a change in our in- 
tentions without its being a question of honor. 
He continued the economic argument by show- 
ing how this two hundred million dollar 
increase in our exports would favorably affect 
some of our fundamental industries, such as 
the iron and steel, the cotton, the flour and 
meat, and the shipping industries. 

Flouton, the second speaker on the negative, 
argued that the Cubans were unfit, socially, to 
become United Stattes citizens and he tried to 
picture how it would seem to have our Con- 
gress packed with black senators from Cuba. 

The last speaker on the affirmative, Hupper, 
began by citing the cases of Arizona and New 
Mexico, and comparing their condition and 
population with those of Cuba, favorably to 
Cuba. He next advanced the economic argu- 
ment by showing how the annexation and 
development of Cuba, whose staple product 
is sugar, would place the United States on a 
safe and sound economic basis for the produc- 
tion of the sugar we consume and would obvi- 
ate our having to import one-fifth of our sugar 
from Europe under a high tariff which neces- 
sarily sets the price for the duty-free sugar. 

The last speaker for the negative was Ken- 
nedy. He showed that the annexation of Cuba 
would injure our beet-sugar industry, but he 
accidentally admitted that beet-sugar could not 
be produced under four cents a pound, twice 
the cost of sugar production in Cuba. He then 
closed with more prophecy as to the undesira- 
bility of Cuba socially. 

In the rebuttal Ellwood reviewed his first 
speech and reiterated the argument of the 
four-fold promise. Redman met one of Ken- 
nedy's argT.mients by showing that annexation 
would be a decidedly paying business proposi- 
tion. Flouton accused the affirmative of talk- 
ing merely of dollars and cents, arguing only 
the economic issue and dodging the others. 
Roberts explained that the affirmative laid 
more stress on the economic issue because it 

was fundamental. He also attacked the chief 
argument of the negative, the social conten- 
tion. Kennedy then summarized the argu- 
ments of the negative. Hupper closed the 
debate with what was easily the best speech of 
the evening. He summed up the case of the 
affimiative in a concrete figure of a fortress 
and an opposing army. He indicated those of 
the affirmative's arguments which their oppo- 
nents had failed to meet, claiming that the lat- 
ter's arguments were less essential in the con- 
sideration of the question. 

The judges, Mr. Hamlin Lamond, editor of 
the Nation, Mr. Alfred H. Montague of New 
York City, and Mr. Albert E. Wilcox, princi- 
pal of the East Rochester High School, retired 
for a few moments and then brought in a 
unanimous decision for the affirmative. After 
the debate there was a reception at the Phi 
Kappa Psi House. 


In a loosely played game on both sides Bow- 
doin won from Boston College on Whittier 
Field last Saturday. The game was uninter- 
esting and one-sided from the first. Bowdoin 
hit harder than in any previous contest, but the 
fielding was ragged at times. Files pitched 
well, and the work of Lawrence both behind 
the bat and with the stick, was noteworthy.

On Monday evening of this week tlie Col- 
lege Glee, Mandolin and Guitar Clubs made 
their annual appearance in Memorial Hall. 
The program rendered was fully up to the 
standard of programs of former years. Every 
number was encored and several were called 
back twice and three times. Especially well 
received were the selections of the Club quar- 
tette, F. E. Kendrie, the violin soloist, A. O. 
Pike, vocal soloist, and F. R. Upton, the 
reader, who was encored four times. The 
clubs have done good work this year, and the 
trips have all been successful, for this the col- 
lege should give credit to A. H. Ham, '08, who 
has managed the clubs, to A. O. Pike, '07, 
leader of the Glee Club, and T. R. Winchell, 
'07, leader of the Mandolin Club. 

The program presented last Monday even- 
ing was as follows :

On Friday, April 26, Lewiston High School 
won from Gardiner High School in the final 
debate of the Bowdoin Interscholastic Debat- 
ing League which was held in Memorial Hall. 
Over 250 people were present at the debate 
and both schools were well represented. by sup- 
porters of their team. The Lewiston delega- 
tion considerably enlivened the evening by 
cheering for the members of their tearn, and 
by giving their school yells before and after 
the debate. . , 

The question debated was, "Resolved,. Th2it 
Senate Bill No. 529, Relating to Shipping Sub- 
sidies, as Reported to the National House of 
Representatives, Should Become a Law." The 
team from Gardiner which had been coached 
by Ammie B. Roberts, '07, had the affirmative 
side of the question and was composed of Har- 
rison Berry, Harold Holt, and Frank Cobb, 
with Ralph Parker as alternate. The Lewis- 
ton team which did credit to the coaching of 
VV. S. Linnell, '07, had the negative, and its 
members were George Keist, Franklin Fisher, 
and Harold Marston, with Rodolph Roy as 
alternate. Professor Chapman presided over 
the debate, and the judges were Professor 
R. C. McCrea, Professor Allen Johnson, and 
Scott Wilson, Esq., of Portland. 

After the debate a reception was tendered 
to the members of the teams and their friends 
by the Christian Association, in Hubbard Hall 
and both Hubbard Hall and the VValker Art 
Building were kept open for the benefit of the 
visitors until the teams left for Brunswick.

MAY 3. 1907 

It has only been within the 
Sunday Tennis last year that the practice 

seems to have started of 
using the tennis courts on Sunday. It is with 
regret that the Orient notices this course and 
we desire to register a strong protest against 
the continuance of this plan. We do not desire 
to pose as rigid moral critics nor expect Bow- 
doin students to be saints in embryo, but cer- 
tainly such conduct is beneath the dignity of 
college men. It is not that there is anything 
intrinsically wicked in the playing of a set of 
tennis on a Sunday afternoon, if it were only 
in the tennis itself that the matter lay, but we 
must remember how it appears to others. 
When we consider how many visitors there are 
to our campus on Sundays in spring and also 
how the electrics are carrying crowds past the 
courts all day, we must think what an impres- 
sion of Bowdoin a stranger would receive. A 
small matter too often gives an evil impression 
which it takes years of work to convince the 
holder of it, is wrong. The fellows may 
have an entirely innocent intent but the action 

is still working harm to the good name of the 
college. Fellows may say : "Why is it any 
worse to play a game of tennis on Sunday than 
to go for a walk or gocanoeing?" It is not, as 
far as the sport goes ; but when we go for a 
walk we are off by ourselves, but when we play 
tennis we are under the shade of Bowdoin and 
are involving more than just ourselves. It is 
not in the game that the harm is, but in the 
effect produced. Let us not be selfish. It never 
was a Bowdoin custom ; and let us have respect 
enough for the views of others and for the 
good name of the college to see that it never 
be permitted to become such. The Orient 
believes that the best sentiment of the college 
will forbid the continuance of such practice. 

The Selfishness of ^.^^ '^^^^^"^ °^ -S^' ''^'*°" 
^ .. „ rial may possibly seem 

* harsh to some and yet it 

expresses what is true in only too many 
instances in regard to the financial support of 
undergraduate interests. Just at this time the 
various spring college interests are soliciting 
funds and are meeting with the usual difficul- 
ties. Some fellows seem to think a manager 
is nothing better than a beggar. Some pay up 
promptly, some sign subscriptions and never 
pay, and some refuse to help at all. It is not 
because these students are not interested in col- 
lege organizations, that some are so niggardly 
in their support, but rather because they are so 
inordinately selfish that they much prefer to 
spend the money on themselves. It is only too 
often that a manager will receive a reply to a 
request for a subscription to the effect that, "I 
can't give you much this year, our house party 
is so expensive;" or "I went to Lewiston to the 
show last night and have got to go light for the 
rest of the month, and don't know when 
I can pay you." Now the Orient certainly 
approves of house dances and all such occa- 
sions, but is it not showing selfishness to let a 
trip to Bath or a dance interfere with college 
subscriptions? Athletics and the other organ- 
izations have got to be supported and why 
should a part expect the rest to bear the bur- 
den of their responsibility? Investigation 
quickly shows us that each branch of athletics 
is supported practically by its student sub- 
scriptions, and yet a fellow who is willing 
to give ten dollars to go to a dance is just as 
willing that another should bear his share of 
expense in contributing to athletics. The sup- 
port of the regular undergraduate college 



interests should be the first duty of the college 
man. Every man should be willing to do some- 
thing and should plan to do so. There are a 
few possibly who cannot do so, and of course 
all cannot give the same amount, but it is not 
just that a man should economize in his college 
subscriptions while he is spending freely in 
every other direction. We are glad to say that 
by no means the majority of Bowdoin students 
act this way, but we would like to give this 
precept to the student body that, only too often, 
it is not economy that impels a man to refuse a 
subscription, but selfishness. 


On returning after the Easter vacation, it 
was found that an innovation had been intro- 
duced in the form of a Bowdoin Time Table. 
This was a simple folder put on sale at the 
Library by one of the students and which con- 
tained the times of nearly everything a Bow- 
doin student has any need to know. It con- 
tained the office hours of the college officials, 
the times the Art Building, Town and College 
Libraries are open, the times of delivery and 
collections of all mails, the times the express 
offices are open in Brunswick, the office hours 
of the Brunswick doctors and dentists, the 
days and times of closing of the Brunswick 
stores, the present railroad time table, the time- 
table of the electric roads, and a few other 
similar items of interest. 

Since the issuing of the time table the even- 
ing collection of the campus mail box has been 
changed from 8 to 8.30 p.m. 



2.30-5 P.M. Track work on Whittier Field.

Word was received Wednesday that Dartmouth 
had beaten Bowdoin by the score of 5 to 4. 


"New Chronicles of Rebecca," a new novel by 
Kate Douglass Wiggin, was put upon the market 
April 17. In this novel the characters of "Rebecca 
of Sunnybrook Farm" figure largely. It is a story 
glowing with humor, full of human kindness and 
winning realism. 

"Wunuissoo" is the title of a new book just 
received at the library written by William Allen, 
who was president of Bowdoin from 1820 to 1839. 
The book was written while President Allen was .in 
Brunswick and was not published until thirty years 
had elapsed. It is a poem in four cantos, and is ded- 
icated to the memory of his wife. 

The Library has recently received of Francis R. 
Upton, Esq., of the Class of 1875, a copy of Boydell's 
Illustrations of the Dramatic Works of Shakespere. 
This American edition was one of the notable art 
books of the middle of the last century and is bound 
in two giant folios which make an interesting addi- 
tion to our Shakesperian collection.

At last week's 1909 class meeting, the matter of 
a Sophomore banquet and several other important 
class duties were discussed. Those elected on the 
banquet committee were P. H. Brown, P. G. Bishop,

Theta Delta Chi played the Zeta Psi Fraternity 
in baseball Monday afternoon, resulting in a score 
of 10 to 3 in favor of the former team. Theta Delta 
Chi's battery was Hamburger and Draper, and for 
Zeta Psi, Cole and Eastman. 

The members of the Lewiston High debating team 
were entertained by Wandtke, '10, at the Delta Upsi- 
lon House, and the members of the Gardiner team 
were entertained at the Alpha Delta Phi House, 
during their stay here for the Interscholastic Debate.

Andrews, of Nebraska State University, issued an 
order prohibiting smoking on the campus. He now 
declares that all students hereafter found guilty of 
chewing tobacco will be expelled from the Univer- 

Last Saturday the second team was defeated by 
Edward Little High School, 6-1. Those who played 
on the second team were Scamman, p. ; Green, c. ; 
Piper, l; Hayes, 2; Wandtke, 3; Capt. Dresser, ss. ; 
Walker, l.f. ; Purington, c.f., and Sanborn, r.f. 

According to the usual custom the baseball man- 
agement is this season running an Literscholastic 
League. The schools who are members of the 
League are Edward Little High, Lewiston High, 
Gardiner High, Leavitt Institute and the Alpha 
Sigma Club of Brunswick. The standing of the 
several teams will be reported in the Orient from 
week to week. 

Last week the athletic committee of Brown 
announced that in the future all athletic relations 
with Dartmouth would be severed. The reason for 
this action arises from the dispute in the Brown- 
Dartmouth baseball game last Saturday over a decis- 
ion of the umpire. It seems that a Brown player was 

running from first to second when a batted ball 
struck the second baseman's glove and bounded so 
as to hit the runner. Capt. Skillin of Dartmouth 
claimed that the runner was hit by a batted ball and 
was therefore out, and when the umpire refused to 
sustain this theory the Dartmouth team withdrew 
from the field. 


^ April 20, Prof. Moody attended the meeting of 
New England Mathematics Teachers— held at Bos- 
ton University. 

Prof. L. A. Lee recently spoke in Portland on the 
"Wild Animals of Maine." 

Professor Robinson has been working for the past 
few weeks on an extensive analysis of gold ores 
from Nova Scotia. 

Prof. Robinson expects to attend the dinner of the

Prof. Files has given to the college more than 
two hundred trees of choice varieties raised from 
seed in a nursery. The larger ones will be placed in 
groups around the borders of the campus at once. 
They are mostly evergreens, a kind of tree in which 
the campus has been lacking. There will be a nursery 
for the smaller ones near the observatory where they 
will be transplanted and later put in place about the 
campus. Among them are specimens of the Scotch 
pine, the Norway spruce, the Colorado blue spruce, 
the pinus ponderosa, the catalpa, the box elder, and 
several varieties of oaks. 

Prof. Lee has been recently re-appointed by Gov. 
Cobb, State Geologist and a member of the State 
Survey Commission.

Prof. Chapman gave an interesting talk in Sunday 
chapel. He said in part: There is nothing that we 
know so little about and yet nothing which so vitally 
concerns us as temptation. Evil in one form or 
another presents itself to each of us every day. The 
two ways of meeting temptation and turning it aside, 
may best be illustrated by two examples from the 
ancient Grecian mythology. By being bound to the 
mast Ulysses withstood the enchanting songs of the 
Sirens. The Argonauts passed the Sirens in safety, 



because they knew the sweeter music of their com- 
panion. Orpheus. 

From these examples the two ways of meeting 
temptation are evident. First by self-restraint, or 
assertion of the spiritual power over that of the 
cornoreal. Second, by the possession of something 
that is infinitely superior to all the power that evil 
has at its command. This something is found in the 
love of God, the possession of which banishes all 
thoughts of evil. 


Next Sunday, May 5. Rev. Lyman Abbott, Editor 
of The Outlook, New York City, the second of the 
Bowdoin College Preachers, will preach at the 
Church on the Hill in the morning, and speak at 
chapel in the afternoon. Everyone should hear him

new home on High Street. 

CLASS OF 1903 

Andrew P. Havey, who has served for the past 
winter as representative from Sullivan in the 73d 
legislature, has been one of the busiest men in the 
House. Although a Democrat, he succeeded in car- 
rying a nominally Republican town by over 150 votes. 
The Bangor News has the following to say of him: 

It might not be amiss just at this moment to recall 
that Representative Havey of Sullivan, the next to 
the youngest member in the House, has won quite a 
record in the council halls of the State this winter. 
He has been a hard worker and a student of all 
interests affecting his locality, either directly or indi- 
rectly. As a member of one of the most popular leg- 
islative clubs, he has been a notable figure, and one 
of the best entertainers. He has been called upon at 
many critical moments to render service to the law- 
makers. It is doubtful if anyone in the House can 
show a better record. Here are the seven measures 
that Representative Havey has pushed through to a 
successful conclusion : 

Smelt law for Gouldsboro Bay. 

Close time on lobsters during the months of July 
and August between Petit Manan Point and Schoodic 

Incorporation of Hancock and Sullivan Bridge Co. 

Extension of the charter of the Winter Harbor 
Trust Co. 

Repeal of the special laws of 1863 and 1903 relating

Authorization of the Benvenue Granite Co. to con- 
struct and maintain crossings in Sullivan.

It was indeed a happy chance that brought 
together in the heart of a hurrying modern 
college life these old canvases of the Walker 
Art Gallery, and the serene ladies and elegant 
gentlemen of an older day could furnish much 
material for the foundation of correct stand- 
ards of artistic judgment, if there should 
appear several articles similar to the "Notes"'' 
by the w^riter in the April Quill. Why, more- 
over, with such an interpreter, so skilled in the 
fine values of color and form, could not a col- 
lege course be organized for the study of the 
principles of artistic expression and the rudi- 
ments of art criticism ? 

As a well-ordered and well-written study of 
the literary development of a particular era 
and country, "Characteristics of Modern Irish 
Poetry" is excellent. Brief excerpts illustrat- 
ing the different notes of the poetry would 
have enriched the essay. The feverish enun- 
ciation of nationality which marked the poets 
of '48 was natural in view of their ignomin- 
ious national condition, but we can hardly sub- 
scribe to the generalization of our author, that 
"the dominant note of this poetry was that 
of all zvortliy imaginative poetry, the doctrine 
of nationality." The realm of the imagina- 
tion is a world, a soul's country, to which no 
man has set bounds. 

The later Celtic verse, as the writer well 
says further on, has not the limitations of 
appeal of the "Nation Poets" and triumphs by 
force of pure poetry. 

The "note of rebellion" mentioned by the 
writer is not alone in and because of the 
Fenian episode; it is in the heart of the Celt. 
He is a rebel against the actual. According 
to Matthew Arnold's dictum he rebels "against 
the world of circumstance." He would rather 
follow the glint and gleam of faery than tread 
any commonplace path of conformity. 

The wit of a Yankee countryside is always 
a bit bold and coarse and its best portrayals 
suffer from seeming exaggeration. The pres- 
ent example, "The Picnic at Mountfort," has 
much merit, — a central incident, well-sus- 
tained humor, and descriptive ease. The 

writer seems to understand his type of char- 
acters and lets them speak out naturally. In 
view of the recent success of "Mr. Pratt" he 
would seem to do well to exercise his power. 
But amusement and artistic satisfaction must 
not be confused. Few Yankee yarns contain 

"Phil," as a sympathetic treatment of 
the youthful idealist, is consistent in language, 
and good in its direct and vivid descriptions. 
The first half could have been condensed with 
enhanced effect. 

This youth "cultivating a sort of isolation," 
the writer has developed into a high-souled, 
self-effacing dreamer. But is it owing to a 
lack of art on the writer's part or to the nat- 
ural skepticism of ruthless reviewers, that 
above the words of confident idealism there 
intrudes the thought, that he might have 
become a mere ne'er-do-well, soured, as are 
many, by isolation? 

The episode of the officer's second coming 
produces a certain dissatisfaction; and disillu- 
sionment, temporary and necessary precursor 
of such buoyant optimism, is painted in far too 
vanishing colors. The elevation of spirit and 
manifest sincerity of this sketch are marked, 
but the proper artistic effect is marred by a 
tendency to a sermonizing style. 

"In Remembrance," the first poem of the 
number, has much of the sweetness and pathos 
of old romance. It is a regrettable oversight 
of printer or proof-reader that marred the 
dainty motto by substituting "tempores" for 
"temporis," and if the verse "As in a mirage 
of dissolving charms" jars by its accentuation, 
it is straightway condoned by the grace of the 
closing stanza. "The Living" is a good exam- 
ple of didactic verse, with a forceful plea. 
"Let us," that long-suffering exhortation, is 
not overdone here, but it is well to have it 
excluded as completely as possible. 

In "Edith" the genuine dignity of the sonnet- 
form and the general elevation of tone are so 
marked that the question raised by the seventh 
line is soon answered by the supposition of an 
evident omission and misprint, and dissatisfac- 
tion with the verse "Thou wert destined midst 
[better 'mid'?] brilliant courts to shine" may 
be credited to a certain captiousness in readers 



and reviewers which makes it distasteful for 
them to be forced to think too closely of 
accents and troches and iambs, despite even 
Shakespeare's irregularities. 

Sonnets and much serious verse we have 
had and now we would emphasize the good plea 
and good advice of the editorial in this Quill 
by askinf if some one will not liven the Quill's 
spring numbers with some lyrics of lighter 
vein, some ballade or rondeau. The Postman 
points out two pleasing selections of verse, the 
second of which suggests the fierce vigor of 
Henley without his lyric perfection. The titles 
of the best essays of the month might be of 
interest to the Postman's readers and perhaps 
occasionally the quotation of some really strik- 
ing paragraphs of prose.

In an exceedingly heart-rending game to 
watch from the Bowdoin side, the Bowdoin 
team lost to Dartmouth at Hanover on May 
I. Bowdoin led up to the last of the eighth, 
when a remarkable batting rally on the part of 
Dartmouth gave her five runs and the game. 
Bowdoin played fast ball, except in this inning, 
and Sparks pitched a nice game throughout. 
It was Dartmouth's four clean hits that gave 
her the game more than any wildness on the 
part of the Bowdoin team. The battinp- of 
Bower was a feature of the game. 

No scoring was done until the third when 
Bower reached third on a three-bagger and 
scored on a bunt by Lawrence. Bowdoin 
scored the remainder of her three runs in the 
fifth. Manter filed out. Sparks made a base 
hit. Harris struck out. Sparks stole second 
and Bower got another single, putting two on 
bases. Stanwood scored both these runs on a 
hard, clean hit between first and second. Stan- 
wood then scored on a two-base hit of 
McDade. Files struck out. This stopped 
Bowdoin's scoring for the game. Dartmouth 
made five runs in the eighth. Two errors by 
Bower and one by Sparks, aided by two sin- 
gles and two two-base hits did the business.

The Beta Sigma Chapter of the Beta Theta 
Pi fraternity held its annual reception and 
dance at the Chapter House on McKeen Street 
April 26. The house was very prettily deco- 
rated with palms, ferns, potted plants and cut 
flowers. The reception was in the afternoon 
from 4 until 6 o'clock. 

The guests were received by Mrs. William 
DeWitt Hyde, Mrs. Leslie A. Lee, Mrs.

Mrs. George T. Files and Mrs. Frank E. 
Roberts of Brunswick, Mrs. John H. Huddil- 
ston of Orono, Mrs. John W. Haines of Dex- 
ter, and Mrs. Nathan Weston of Augusta. 
The affair was very largely attended, many 
being present from out of town. 

During the reception punch was dipped by 
Mrs. Franklin C. Robinson, Miss Caroline 
Robinson and Mrs. Roscoe J. Ham of Bruns- 
wick, and Mrs. George Matthews of Kansas 
Citv. Mo. 

The delegates from the other fraternities 
were as follows John W. Leydon, '07, from

Upsilon; Carl M. Robinson, '08, from Delta 
Kappa Epsilon ; Lester Adams, '07, from 
Zeta Psi; Harry L. Brown, '07, from Theta 
Delta Chi ; Ralph Sawyer, '07, Delta Upsilon, 
and Charles F. Thomas, Jr., '07, from Kappa 

In the evening dancing was enjoyed by 



about 30 couples, the music for the order of 
25 dances being furnished by Lovell's Orches- 

Among those present were Miss Eleanor 
Leydon of Bath, Miss Bertha Stetson, Miss 
Sue Winchell, Miss Cecil Houghton, Miss

The' Dickens Carnival proved to be one of 
the most successful amateur entertainments 
ever presented in Brunswick. About ten 
months ago the ladies of the Saturday Club 
decided to give a Dickens Carnival for the 
benefit of the Public Library. The matter was 
placed into the hands of a committee consist- 
ing of Mrs. Franklin C. Robinson, Mrs. Les- 
lie A. Lee, Miss Abbie Martin, Miss Laura 
A. Hatch, Mrs. Byron Stevens, Mrs. William 
H. Macdonald and Miss Helen Varney. The 
committee decided to represent the following 
books : "Our Mutual Friend," "Bleak 
House," Dombey and Son," "David Copper- 
field," "Barnaby Rudge," "Old Curiosity 
Shop," "Great Expectations," "Pickwick 
Papers," "Little Dorrit," "Martin Chuzzle- 
wit," "Nicholas Nickleby," "Oliver Twist," 
"The Chimes," "Christmas Carol," and "The 
Cricket on the Hearth." 

To give a faithful representation of these 
books, it was found that it would be neces- 
sary to get together two hundred characters, 
the largest amateur production ever attempt- 

ed in the town of Brunswick. Dickens was 
not a writer of the twentieth century, and in 
order to give an exact reproduction of his 
characters the committee found that it was 
largely a question of costumes, butthe Bruns^ 
wick garrets and shed chambers yielded an 
unlimited store of antiquities, and the result was 
an array of hoopskirts, poke bonnets, tightly 
laced waists, and other paraphernalia of olden 
times that would have delighted the eye of 
Dickens himself. 

The entertainment lasted for three hours 
during which time Brunswick people were 
introduced to some of the most famous char- 
acters in fiction. After the carnival a grand 
march was held, led by Professor Franklin 
C. Robinson and Mrs. Leslie A. Lee. 

Among those characters worthy of especial 
mention was the Rev. Herbert A. Jump as 
Mr. Pickwick, Mrs. Byron Stevens as Mrs. 
Jarley, Professor W. T. Foster as Sergeant 
Buzfuz, Mr. Lewis H. Fox as Barnaby 
Rudge, and Mrs. F. C. Robinson as Mrs. 
Carney in Oliver Twist. 


The debate between Cornell and Bowdoin, 
to be given under the auspices of the Cornell 
Congress and the Bowdoin Debating Council 
will be held in Memorial Flail, Tuesday even- 
ing, May 14, at 8 o'clock. The question to be 
debated is as follows : That American Cities 
Should Seek the Solution of the Street Rail- 
way Problem in Private Ownership. The 
speakers for Bowdoin, who will have the 
affirmative are Redman, '07, Kimball, '07, and 
Plupper, '07. The Cornell speakers are : A. 
H. Winder, R. C. Edlund, and D. T. Smith. 

The judges will be Professor Bruce Wyman 
of the Harvard Law School ; Wm. S. Young- 
man, a graduate of the Harvard Law School,

No. 4 

The victory of the Bow- 
Debating Team doin Intercollegiate debat- 
ing team over Syracuse 
on May 3, is the seventh debate in which the 
college has participated. Previous to nine- 
teen hundred and five, debating was carried 
on at Bowdoin in a desultory fashion. No 
regular instruction was offered and the fact 
that any debates occurred was due to volun- 
tary efforts on the part of those students most 
interested. Under even this spasmodic 
arrangement our intercollegiate debates met 
with results that were highly pleasing. These 
led to the establishing in nineteen hundred 
and five of a professorship in Argumentation. 
Since that time Bowdoin has fought for for- 
ensic honors with two colleges and with two 
universities. The debate at Syracuse marks 
her fourth consecutive victory. 

In no line of college activity have we been 
so successful and in no line so eminently fort- 
unate in the possession of men. The team 
that has for the past two years won such an 
enviable reputation for itself and the college 

has been recruited solely from the ranks of 
the Class of 1907, and the debate with Cor- 
nell on May 14th will mark the close of its 
labors. In debating as in all other college 
activities, there is a crying need for men. A 
glance into the future shows us that the team 
which will debate Syracuse next year (accord- 
ing to the two-year agreement) must be made 
up of men whose experience has been limited 
to class-room debates. From this it is appar- 
ent that to maintain the pace that has already 
been set there is need of new men, men with 
natural ability and a willingness for hard 
work. Such men have also been in Bowdoin, 
and we trust we will come up to the occasion 
next year. 

The Maine meet comes a 
Training week from to-morrow, and 

four perhaps five more 
championship ball games are on the schedule. 
It is not till now that most of the students 
wake up to the need of hard, conscientious 
training. A man to be in condition to run a 
race, must faithfully train, must not smoke, 
must be careful about what he eats, and must 
get eight full hours of sleep. Every man who 
comes out for any varsity team, by so doing 
signifies his intention to try to do something 
for the college, and any man who tries to do 
something for Bowdoin should try to do his 
best, which in this case he can do only by 
training. This word of warning comes late, 
for only one week of training is possible 
before the Maine meet. But this word for 
training is needed and a recent event has 
almost forced the college paper to make some 
comment on it. 

Training should mean that every man while 
he is trying to be a varsity man, should not go 
to functions whether dances or razoos, that 
will keep him up after half-past ten. It is 
less than two weeks ago that several Sopho- 
mores did attend one of these functions, went 
for two or three miles over country roads, ran 
throueh some woods, and did not get back to 
the campus until two o'clock in the morning, 
to say nothing of the Freshmen who accom- 
panied them. As it hapDcned no one was 
injured, but the chance of injury was run with 
some of Bowdoin's track honors at stake, and 
as it was, for the following two days, most of 
the Sophomore and some of the Freshman 
track candidates were lifeless on the field. In 
Amherst this spring, a Senior who played on 

fioWbOlN ORIEMt 


the Varsity ball team was thrown off the team 
because he neglected his training and stayed 
out late at a dance. At Amherst they could 
afford to lose him and put another man in his 
place, but here we can afford to lose no one, 
we can make no examples of the men who do 
wrong, our only solution of the problem lies 
in everyone doing right. 


Dr. Lyman Abbott, editor of the Outlook, New 
York City, and the second of the Bowdoin College 
Preachers, gave a short and interesting talk in 
chapel last Sunday. 

In part he said: Self sacrifice is not the reluctant 
giving up of petty pleasures and amusements for 
gain, but a voluntary giving up of great things for 
the benefit of humanity. 

General Armstrong after the termination of our 
Civil War, immediately set about to encourage and 
promote the education of the Southern negro; a 
gigantic task and after untiring and persistent work, 
followed by success, these words were found in his 
diary, "I have never known self-.sacrifice," showing 
that from his great interest in his work to help others, 
he never thought of self-sacrifice on his part. That 
was true self-sacrifice for it was an unknowing self- 
sacrifice. Dr. Grenfel in his efforts to aid the people 
of Labrador, said to me one day, "I need no pity, I 
incur no self-sacrifice and besides I'm the only doc- 
tor there." Here's a man taking so much interest in 
his charitable work, that never a thought that he was 
sacrificing himself ever occurred to him. But this is 
true self-sacrifice. 

When the students leave college they shouldn't 
seek to obtain both manliness and success, but if 
manliness alone is sought, success will inevitably fol- 


A number of students took advantage of the 
opportunity to meet Dr. Lyman Abbott informally 
at a questionaire held in the Christian Association 
rooms Sunday evening. He first answered those 
questions which pertained to religion. Dr. Abbott 
believes that the life of God is expressed in the soul 
of man, that the kindness of man is a reflection of 
the kindness of God, that the love of man is a reflec- 
tion of the love of God. He believes that a young 
man should associate himself with that church in 
which he can do the most good and from which he 
can get the most good. 

Of the professions Dr. Abbott spoke especially of 
the law. No country affords better opportunities 
for the study of law than the United States. He 
thinks a post-graduate course in one of our univer- 
sities preferable to that offered in any of the for- 
eign countries. 

Dr. Abbott said that there is always an opening 
either in the country or city for a young man with 
health, energy, intelligence, and good morals.

There is getting to be quite a little colony of Bow- 
doin men in the city of Hartford. Rev. Edward P. 
Parker, D.D., '56, and Dr. Phineas H. Ingalls, '^^,

young Bowdoin men in the employ of the Interna- 
tional Banking Corporation to leave its employ. 


Last Monday a handicap meet was held on 
Whittier Field in a drizzling rain. The results 
were not phenomenal, but were satisfactory 
and we have every reason to be encouraged 
by them. There are now in college, not 
counting Shorey, only ten of last year's points 
in the Maine meet. This means new men are 
needed and the work done by new men last 
Monday was the most encouraging feature. 
Several large handicaps were given which 
made all the finishes close. The results were 
as follows : 

100- Yard Dash, First Heat — Smith, '09, handicap 
5 yards, first ; Atwood, '09, scratch, second ; Stetson, 
'08, handicap, 6 yards. Time — 10.3. Second Heat — ■

Boston, Mass. 

With the completion of the new buildings, which were dedicated September 25th, 1906, this school now has facilities and 
equipment for teaching and research iu the various branches of medicine probably unsurpassed in this country. Of the five 
buildings, four are devoted entirely to laboratory teaching and research. The numerous hospitals of Boston afford 
abuudanl opportunities for clinical instruction in m dicine and surgery. 


A four years' course, open to bachelors of art, literature, philosophy or science, and to persons of equivalent standing, 
leads to the degree of M.D. The studies of the fourth year are wholly elective; they include laboratory subjects, general 
medicine, general surgery and the special clinical branches. 

The next school year extends from September 26, 1907 to June 29, 1908.

The next College Preacher will be Hugh Black of 
New York City, a young man whose fame has spread 
through the whole English-speaking world. Until a 
year ago he was known as one of the most remark- 
able preachers in Scotland, his church in Edinburgh 
being crowded at every service. During the last year 
he has been a professor in Union Seminary, New 
York, and incidentally has been sought every Sunday 
as preacher to American college and university stu- 
dents. He will preach in Brunswick May 19th. 


In the year 1902-1903, the Editor-in-Chief 
of the Orient originated the idea of having 
a pin made which could be worn by members 
of the Orient Board. This custom was con- 
tinued until 1905-1906, and for the last two 
years has been let drop. The management 
this year, however, has decided to revive the 
custom, and each member of the board is to 
have the privilege of wearing the Orient Pin. 
The pin is a simple gold Bowdoin Seal, hav- 
ing in the border at the top, "The Orient," 
and at the bottom "Bowdoin."

NO. 5 


Last Tuesday Bowdoin won its debate with 
the team representing the Cornell Debating 
Congress, and recorded its fifth consecutive 
debating victory. The debate was awarded to 
Bowdoin by a unanimous vote of the judges, 
but the debate was a close one, it being 
extremely difficult to pick the winner until the 
last rebuttal speech was made, and even then 
many doubted whether Bowdoin would win. 
The debate was well worth winning, for 
though the Cornell team was not the "varsity 
team, it was a team of good debaters, and 
might be styled the second 'varsity since two 
of the men were 'varsity alternates. The feel- 
ing was all of the most friendly type and it is 
hoped relations with Cornell may be contin- 

Governor William T. Cobb presided over 
the debate, introducing the speakers as their 
turns came. 

The question for debate was Resolved, 
That American Cities Should Seek the Solu- 
tion of the Street Railroad Problem in Private 
Ownership. Bowdoin had the affirmative, 
and was represented by F. J. Redman, '07; 
Phillips Kimball, '07; and Roscoe H. Hupper, 
'07, with William M. Harris, '09, as alternate; 
while the Cornell team which defended the 
negative was composed of A. Heber Winder, 
'08 ; Roscoe C. Edlund, '09 ; and David T. 
Smith, '08, with H. T. Kent, Jr., '08, as alter- 
nate. Mr. Kent, however, did not accompany 
the team to Brunswick. 

Mr. Redman opened the debate for the 
affirmative by showing that municipal owner- 
ship of street railways, which nowhere exists 
in the United States, would result in much 
complication because of the interurban car 
lines, in greater expenditure to the cities than 
is possible with their present debt limits, and 
in corruption since our cities are now corrupt 
would not be rendered less so by the entrust- 
ment to them of a new important business 

Mr. Winder, the first speaker for the nega- 
tive, pointed out as evils of the system of pri- 
vate ownership, corruption of city politics, 
over-capitalization, high fares, and poor ser- 

vice. He showed that the system of private 
ownership was the result of inertia allowing 
things to move along the course Of least resist- 
ance and not the result of thoughtful planning 
and statesmanship. He also pointed out that 
the problem of ownership of street railroads 
is absolutely local and should be decided by 
each city. 

Mr. Kimball, the second speaker for the 
affirmative, showed that municipal ownership 
would result in poorer service and greater 
expense using as an illustration supposed con- 
ditions in New York under municipal owner- 

Mr. Edlund, who was the next speaker for 
the negative, attempted to refute the argu- 
ments in favor of the regulation of street rail- 
roads as private enterprises since this would 
have to be the solution of the problem with 
private ownership. He also proposed and 
supported the theory of municipal ownership 
and operation. 

Mr. Hupper devoted the entire of his main 
speech to rebutting the arguments of the first 
two speakers on the negative. His speaking 
was extremely effective and refuted most of 
their arguments, especially those in regard to 
the municipal corruption, over-capitalization, 
and high fares resulting from private owner- 
ship. He refuted the arguments in regard to 
municipal regulation and control by quoting 
examples of the same from Massachusetts and 
showing that the methods of Massachusetts 
were applicable to all United States cities. 

Mr. Smith, the last speaker for the nega- 
tive, claimed that municinal ownership is supe- 
rior to private ownership, because under pri- 
vate ownership roads are run entirely for 
profit, and under municipal ownership entirely 
for public service. He proposed and defended 
the theory of municipal ownership with pri- 
vate operation. The order of speaking in 
rebuttal was Edlund, Redman, Winder, Kim- 
ball, Smith, and Hupper. All the rebuttal 
speeches were good, but it was here probably 
that Bowdoin won the debate, Mr- Hupper's 
rebuttal speech being very exceptionally good. 

The judges, who, after considerable discus- 
sion, unanimously gave the debate to Bowdoin, 
were : Professor Bruce Wyman, of the Har- 


60WD01N ORlfeNt 

vard Law School ; Professor Henry G. Pear- 
son of the Massachusetts Institute of Technol- 
ogy', and William S. Youngman, Esq., of Bos- 


The decisive winning of the game with 
Bates on Whittier Field on last Monday gave 
Bowdoin three straight victories for the state 
championship. The game was a fine exhibi- 
tion of baseball, Bowdoin having no errors 
recorded against her. Bowdoin's fine batting 
won the game. Bates took the lead in the 
first inning. Bridges got a base on balls, Wight 
sacrificed advancing him a base. Wilder hit 
safely, scoring Bridges, and Rogers made a 
two-bagger that scored Wilder. This was all 
the scoring Bates did. 

For Bowdoin Manter scored in the second 
on two hits and a passed ball. In the third G. 
Bower scored on a hit, a sacrifice by McDade, 
and a hit by Files. 

It was Stanwood's fine two-base hit that was 
the great sensational play of the game when he 
scored Abbott and G. Bower in the fifth and 
clinched the game. Bowdoin added another 
run in the seventh. 

The fine backing up on the part of Abbott 
was a feature of the game, when by his hand- 
ling of Stanwood's poor throw to third base he 
succeeded in cutting the Bates winner off at 
the plate.

The baseball game scheduled for University 
of Maine to be played at Brunswick last Sat- 
urday, was forfeited to Bowdoin as the U. of 
M. failed to appear with a complete team. 
Owing to a missing of the train by five of 
the Maine team only seven arrived in Bruns- 
wick. It was a source of regret to both man- 
agements that the game had to go in this way, 
but it really was the only possible course as 
the Bowdoin schedule is complete from now 
on and it was found absolutely impossible to 
add another game. In fact, Bowdoin has had 
to give up playing a postponed game with 
Tufts owing to the fact that the faculty would 
not grant another date. After the declaring of 
the championship as a nine to nothing victory 
for Bowdoin, Maine accepted two Bowdoin 
players and an exhibition game was played. 
This resulted in a victory for Bowdoin, two to 
one. The game was well played on both sides. 
Files pitched for Bowdoin and Dow for 
Maine. The summary:

The question of the advisability of having a 
College Commons or dining room where all 
the undergraduates of Bowdoin may eat 
together has been discussed at some length by 
both the faculty and the student body during 
the last few years. Undergraduates have gen- 
erally hailed it as a new idea and will doubt- 
less be surprised to learn that from 1829 to 
1834 students of Bowdoin College ate at a Col- 
kge Common. Without attempting to discuss 
the advantages or disadvantages of reviving 
this custom the Orient wishes to present the 
facts taken from the college records which 
show that the idea was once tried here at the 
request of the students and that it was a fail- 

Upon the records on file at the Treasurer's 
office appear the following: 

Sept. 5, 1826. — Voted to erect a building to 
be used as a College Commons or Eating Club 
for the students, and to apply to the state leg- 
islature for financial aid. 

Sept. 2, 1829. — Voted that Joseph H. 
McKeen act as a committee to procure or erect 
a suitable building for a College Commons, 
$1,750 to be appropriated for same. 

Sept. 1832. — Voted that the trustees pay 
$169.00 to College Commons, the same being 
in payment for the Commencement Dinner. 

Sept. 1834. — Voted that the sum of $120.00 
be payed to Joseph H. Mclveen in full for his 
claim on the college for losses on account of 
College Commons. 

Sept. 1849. — Voted that for the next course 

of medical lectures the Commons Hall be used 
as a lecture room, unless required by the 
faculty of the college for a Commons. 

The hall referred to as Commons Hall, is 
the low brick building on Bath Street, now 
used as the carpenter's work shop. 


To-night will be held a mass-meeting to 
organize Bowdoin spirit for to-morrow's- meet. 
We have enrolled in the catalog 288 students, 
of these 288 should go to Memorial Hall 
to-night, and 288 take the 8.03 train for 
Waterville to-morrow. 


The statistics of the incomes and expenditures of 
Bowdoin men collected by Professor Foster a few 
weeks ago have been put in book form along with 
some interesting reading matter and will be ready 
for distribution in a short time in the form of a 

The Bulletin contains, not merely suppositions to 
show how a man might work his way through col- 
lege, but facts and figures which show that during 
the years 1906-07, 167 Bowdoin students earned a 
total sum of $37,709.39, or an average of $225 per 
man. The Bulletin contains a tabfe showing .the 
income men have had from special sources; the" pos- 
sibilities for work at the college; a table of neces- 
sary college e.xpenses ; an average expense account 
compiled from the statistics handed in to Prof. Fos- 
ter ; a discussion on the questions, "Must a Self- 
Sunnorting Student Fall Below in Scholarship?" 'Ts 
the Self-Supporting Student in Danger of Losing 
the Best of College Life?" "Is the Man Who 
Works His Way in Danger of Injuring His ■ 
Health?" and "Does the Student Who is Working 
His Way Lose Social Standing?" 

If there exists in the mind of anyone a doubt that 
Bowdoin is a democratic college, that doubt should 
be quickly dispelled by a glance at the Bulletin. He 
will be more than ever convinced that money does 
not give a college man standing among his fellows, 
but only elements of character and qualities of head 
and heart can give him true distinction in the col- 
lege world. 


The annual banquet of the Bowdoin Debating 
Council will be held at Riverton Park Saturday even- 
ing, June first. After dinner speeches will be made 
by all the members, F. J. Redman, '07, being toast- 
master. The invited guests will be Judge William 
L. Putnam, '55 ; Dr. Edward Stanwood, '61 ; Hon. 
Herbert M. Heath, '72 ; Professor Henry L. Chap- 
man, '66, and Professor W. B. Mitchell, 'go. At this 
banquet gold medals will be presented to Redman, 
Snow, Hupper and Roberts, the members of the 
debating team which defeated Syracuse University, 
and medals will be presented to the Cornell team, ,

Scientific Work at ,■ , ,,- ■' ? ., \ 

„ , . lish this week the item 

from the Bowdoiti Ckib in 
Boston in regard to the discussion recently 
held at a meeting of that club on the subject of 
"Bowdoin's Immediate Future." And par- 
ticularly pleased are we to note that some of 
the friends of the college are coming to realize 
the necessity for more scientific work in the 
curriculum and that a beginning at least has 
been made that will look towards this end. 
This is not the first time that the Orient has 
called attention to the need of courses in 
mechanical and perspective drawing and more 
emphasis along all scientific lines. It may not 
be possible now to establish a complete engi- 
neering course, but certainly opportunity 
should be given so that students desiring a 
scientific course may get enough preparation 
here that they may receive a diploma from M. 
I. T. or other scientific schools in two years, 
and not in three or four as is now the case. 
Our opportunities for work in Mathematics, 
Physics and Chemistry are excellent but some- 

thing more is necessary. During the last few 
years, the general departments have been 
receiving constant additions, but the science 
departments have remained the same. In view 
ni the modern demand for scientific work and 
'he fact of the large number of men who are 
'aking these courses, this is hardly the policy 
^o continue. We might add to what is said in 
the article referred to, that the college has 
excellent facilities now for conducting work 
in drawing. The large room originally 
intended for mineralogy on the third floor of 
the Science Building offers a fine chance for 
such work. The Orient hopes that an oppor- 
tunity for broadening the curriculum along 
these lines will be offered and in behalf of the 
student body most heartily unites with the 
Bowdoin Club in its petition to the Governing 
Boards. This is just what we want and need. 

„. . ,. . ... Now that there really is a 
Christian Association r-i • ^- a ■ ^■ 

p .. Christian Association in 

^ Bowdoin it has before it an 

extremely important question of policy. This 

is whether it shall affiliate with the national 

organization of the Young Men's Christian 

Association, so becoming a chapter in the 

national fraternity bound to obey the rules of 

the national body, or shall continue as it has 

started, sever connections with the national 

organization, adopt a new constitution and 

become as strong as possible as a local society. 

The conditions are as follows : By the con- 
stitution and practice of the Y. M. C. A. only 
persons who are members in good standing of 
an Evangelical Church, shall be eligible for 
active membership, and the holding of office. 
Any other man of good moral character may 
become an associate member and enjoy all the 
privileges of active membership except those 
of voting and holding office. During the last 
two years this important section of the Y- M. 
C. A. constitution has been disregarded at 
Bowdoin without making any break with the 
national organization, with the result, how- 
ever, that all the men who held office last year 
and who will hold office next year do not hap- 
pen to be members of evangelical churches. 

To those especially interested in the work of 
the Association, it has seemed that here as at 
Amherst, most good can be done by an Asso- 
ciation in which membership shall be open to 
all students, and which honestly tries to help 
the religious side of the college. There are 
many opportunities for the .Association to do 
good, and the officers want the Association to 



do this in the best possible way. With this in 
view several of the officers have to-day gone to 
the Y. M. C. A. State Convention at Augusta 
to learn what the attitude of the National 
Organization will be to us if we break away, 
or what arguments they have to offer in favor 
of our remaining affiliated with them. 

Whether or not the Bowdoin College Christ- 
ian Association keeps her old constitution or 
adopts a new one, the Northfield Conference is 
open to every Bowdoin man, rnd the Christian 
A.'^so.ciation is trying to get a good number of 
Bowdoin men to attend it this summer. It 
lasts from June 28 to July 7, and is something 
worth the while of every college man's attend- 
ing at least once during his college course. It 
is a unique way of meeting of men of honest 
purpose who are to make up with us a genera- 
tion that will soon represent what is called the 
United States- A longer account of the con- 
ference appears in another part of this issue.

C. E. Stetson, '07, has gone to Fryeburg Academy 
where he will teach Chemistry for the remainder of 
the year. Stetson will take the place of Henderson, 
'05, who has gone to Mexico. 

A curious coincidence is the fact that in six ball 
games this year Bowdoin has been scored on in the 
opening inning, and in four of them the opposing 
team has scored two runs. 

The reading of the commencement parts took 
place yesterday evening in Banister Hall and more 
will be read to-night. The committee to judge them 
were Professor Sills, Moody and Woodruff. 

Manter and Robinson stayed home from the trip 
to Wesleyan and Tufts on account of the Track

versity, with the view of M.A. degree.

leges of the United States. His volumes on "Friend- 
ship" and "Work" are very popular.

The twenty-second annual conference of men 
from the Eastern and Canadian colleges held under 
the auspices of the International Committee of 
Young Men's Christian Associations will meet this 
year at East Northfield, Massachusetts, from June 28 
to July 7. At this conference, which is held in one 
of the most beautiful sections of New England, six 
or seven hundred men will represent almost every 
college and university in the East. 

The conference meetings consist of Bible classes, 
mission classes, classes to study immigration or 
social problems, a general convocation in the morn- 
ing and again in the evening to hear some one speak 
on the problems which are confronting the present 
generation all over the world. Among the leaders 
of the religious classes are Professor Lucius H. Mil- 
ler of Princeton, Rev. H. E. Fosdick of Montclair, 
N. J., Professor Henry B. Wright of Yale, and 
Professor Henry T. Fowler of Brown. Besides 
these, the most prominent speakers for the general 
convocations will be Rev. William Lawrence, Bishop 

feowboiN ORIElSrt 


of Massachusetts, Rev. H. S. Coffin, D.D., of New- 
York City, Rev. F. B. Meyer of England, Mr. George 
Gleason of Japan, Mr. John R. Mott of New York 
City, and Rev. W. W. Moore of Virginia. 

Every afternoon will be entirely free from confer- 
ences and will be devoted to athletic sports, or what- 
ever the delegates wish. A series of baseball games 
is played for the college championship, over a hun- 
dred men usually enter the tennis tournament, and 
every one else has an opportunity for exercise and 
enjoyment in swimming, playing golf, taking part 
in tire Fourth of July athletic meet or walking 
through the surrounding country. No one is required 
to attend any meetings or conferences unless he so 
chooses, and there are many enjoyable features of 
the conferences such as receptions, fraternity din- 
ners, and serenades that cannot be dwelt on here. 

The conference is open to everyone whether a 
member or not of the Christian Association, and it 
affords an opportunity for a pleasant and very profit- 
able week obtainable in no other way. The expenses 
are as follows : Registration fee, $5 for ten days, or 
60 cents a day; board and lodging in the Northfield 
Seminary building $12 for the ten days, or board 
alone costs $9, it being possible to hire tents for four 
people at prices varying from $4 to $10 for the whole 
tent, according to its furnishings. The railroads 
usually grant a one and one-third fare for the round 
trip, which therefore would not cost more than $8. 

It has been some time since Bowdoin has had more 
than a single representative at the conference, and 
this year she should make a better showing. 
Already four or five men are sure of going, but more 
should take advantage of the opportunity. Further 
information can be obtained from J. F. Morrison, '08, 
or the members of the Northfield committee, L. 
Adams, '08, A. L. Robinson, '08, and L. F. Timber- 
lake, '09, who can obtain pamphlets in regard to the 
Conference. All registration fees must be received 
at Northfield before June 22, and all applications for 
tents before June 15. 


On Friday, May 10, the Bowdoin Chapter of

tee consisting of Mrs. Wm. DeWitt Hyde, Mrs. 
Frank E. Woodruff, Mrs. William T. Foster, Mrs. 
Samuel F. Thompson, and Mrs. George F. Tenney.

At the January meeting of the "Bowdoin Club," of 
Boston, Doctor D. O. S. Lowell (Bowdoin, '73), 
delivered by request an address on Esperanto. Dr. 
Lowell is the vice-president of the Boston Esperanto 
Society, and instructor in Esperanto at the Roxbury 
Latin School. He took up such points as the need 
of an international language, the kind of one needed, 
whether Esperanto met this need, the structure of 
the language itself, read, recited and distributed 
specimens of the literature, and as a climax a cho- 
rus of the members present, led by the doctor him- 
self, sang in lusty Esperanto an old Bowdoin song 
which he. had hastily translated. We give the first 
stanza : 

'68 War Song 
(Air, "Tramp, tramp, tramp") 

When the bonny moon is seen 
Glinting down on Bowdoin green, 

And the little stars are twinkling in the sky, 
When the dusky shadows fall 
Round the North of Winthrop Hall, 

Then we'll muster '68 to do or die.

Charles Edward Clifford, Esq., one of the 
few surviving members of the Class of 1847, 
died at his home in West Falmouth, Maine, 
April 20, 1907, at the age of seventy-eight. 
Mr. Clifford, the eldest son of Hon. Nathan 
Clifford, Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court, 
and Hannah Ayer, daughter of Capt. James 
Ayer, was born 2 Nov. 1828, at Newfield, Me. 
He received his early education in his native 
town, but was prepared for college at the 
North Yarmouth Academy. His course at 
Bowdoin was interrupted in his Sophomore 
year, because he was supposed to be engaged 
in certain undergraduate mischief, and he con- 
tinued his studies at Harvard where he grad- 
uated in 1850. It subsequently became known 
that he was innocent of the offense and in 
acknowledgment of the injustice done him 
many years before, a degree with his Bowdoin 
class was voted him in 1902. After gradua- 
tion he studied law with his father, was 
admitted to the bar, and practiced his profes- 
sion at Portland, being associated for a time 
with his younger brother, Hon- William Henry 
Clifford. He served as United States Com- 
missioner from 1878 to 1896, and won a repu- 
tation for eminent fairness and a judicial 
mind. He gave up all professional practice in 
1896 and lived an out-door life at his West 
Falmouth home where he had resided for sev- 
eral years before. 

In politics he belonged to the Democratic 
party, though at the time of the Greenback 
movement he was a prominent supporter of 
Governor Plaisted. In religion he was a Uni- 
tarian and a regular attendant at the First 
Parish Church when in the city. Of a singu- 
larly retiring disposition, he was characterized 
by great force and earnestness when his con- 
victions were aroused. He was a strong man, 
a safe counselor, a modern example of Puritan 

Mr. Clifford married Antoinette Ellis Ayer 
who survives him with two sons and one

Miss Harriet W. Gladwin. 

CLASS OF 1890 

Rev. Henry W. Webb, who is principal of

spending a vacation at Rockland, Mass. 

Victor V. Thompson, Esq., has been re- 
elected Supt. of the Public Schools of Ash- 
land and Hopkinton, Mass. 

CLASS OF 1893

under the name of Peabody and Peabody of 
the Class of 1903. The new firm has offices 
in the Union Mutual Building, Portland, and 
will give especial attention to probate business. 

CLASS OF 1894 

From the recently issued directory by the 
Class Secretary, Charles A. Flagg of the 
Library of Congress, the following recent 
changes appear. 

W. F. Allen is Superintendent of Schools at 
Southern Pines, N. C. 

F. E. Briggs is principal of the High School 
at Lancaster, Mass. 

F. A- Frost is on the staff of the Paris edi- 
tion of the Neiv York Herald, with address at 
38 Rue du Louvre. 

F. H- Knight is an apothecary at Winches- 
ter, Mass. 

C. E. Michels is instructor in classics at 
Connecticut Literary Institution, Suffield, Ct. 

R. L. Sheaff became pastor this month of 
the Congresfational Church at Newcastle, Me. 

Elias Thomas, Jr., has recently sold his 
wholesale grocery business in Portland. 

The births of eight children to members of 
the class are recorded as occurring during the 
past two years. 

CLASS OF 1897 

S. L. Merriman has been elected principal 
of the Normal School at Presque Isle- He has 
already taught in Aroostook County for sev- 
eral years with marked success. 

Dr. Charles D. Moulton of East Orange, N. 
J., was married April 30, 1907, to Miss Alice 
Elizabeth Shine, at Philadelphia. 


The last meeting and dinner of this club for the 
present season was held at the University Club, May 
4th. Austin Cary, '87, Professor of Forestry at Har- 
vard, and Alfred E. Burton, '78, Dean of the Massa- 
chusetts Institute of Technology, spoke on "Bow- 
doin's Immediate Future." The advisability of 
strengthening the college curriculum on the side of 
practical mathematical work, so that better prepa- 



ration could be gained for subsequent professional 
work in engineering and technical schools was the 
subject chiefly discussed. It appears that the engage- 
ment of a single instructor competent to teach 
mechanical drawing, descriptive geometry and prac- 
tical surveying, would make it possible for gradu- 
ates of the college who had elected those courses 
in addition to the chemistry physics and mathemat- 
ics now offered, to take the degrees of any of the 
technical schools of the country in two years instead 
of three or four as at present. These opportunities 
are offered at many other colleges and there is no 
doubt that'their establishment in the Bowdoin cur- 
riculum would attract to the college a good many 
men who go elsewhere under present conditions. 
The discussion was general and it was voted to pre- 
sent the matter through a committee to the govern- 
ing boards of the college. Thirty-five were present, 
including Professor Chapman from the college. 


Ross McClave, as next year's football coach, has 
sent word that Bowdoin must have regular spring 
football practice to turn out the team he wants next 
fall. From now on every afternoon, Capt. Crowley 
will be on the Delta, and spring football practice 
will be carried on after about four o'clock. The 
work will be principally in getting form for kicking 
and in handling the ball. Every man who intends 
to try for the team next fall should get football 
shoes and whatever else may be necessary from 
Assistant Manager Simmons and turn out on the 
Delta every day. 


Fourth Year 
In order to arouse an interest in the study of top- 
ics relating to commerce and industry, and to stimu- 
late an examination of the value of college training 
for business men, a committee composed of Profes- 
sor J. Laurence Laughlin, University of Chicago, 
Chairman ; Professor J. B. Clark, Columbia Univer- 
sity ; Professor Henry C. Adams, University of 
Michigan ; Horace White, Esq., New York City, and 
Hon. Carroll D. Wright, Clark College, have been 
enabled, through the generosity of Messrs. Hart, 
Schaffner and Marx, of Chicago, to offer again in 
1908 four prizes for the best studies on any one of 
the following subjects: 

1. An Examination into the Economic Causes of 
Large Fortunes in this Country. 

2. The History of One Selected Railway System 
in the United States. 

3. The Untouched Agricultural Resources of 
North America. 

4. Resumption of Specie Payments in 1879. 

5. Industrial Combinations and the Financial 
Collapse of 1903. 

6. The Case against Socialism.* 

7. Causes of the Rise of Prices since 1898. 

*Other phases of Socialism were suggested in pre- 
vious years. 

8. Should Inequalities of Wealth Be Regulated 
by a Progressive Income Tax? 

9. The Effect of the Industrial Awakening of 
Asia upon the Economic Development of the West. 

10. The causes of the recent Rise in the Price of 

11. The Relation of an Elastic Bank Currency to 
Bank Credits in an Emergency. 

12. A Just and Practicable Method of Taxing 
Railway Property. 

A First Prize of One Thousand Dollars, and a 
Second Prize of Five Hundred Dollars, in Cash, are 
offered for the best studies presented by Class A, 
composed exclusively of all persons who have 
received the bachelor's degree from an American 
college in 1896, or thereafter ; and a First Prize of 
Three Hundred Dollars, and a Second Prize of One 
Hundred and Fifty Dollars, in Cash, are offered for 
the best studies presented by Class B, composed of 
persons who, at the time the papers are sent in, are 
undergraduates of any American college. No one 
in Class A may compete in Class B ; but any one in 
Class B may compete in Class A. The Committee 
reserves to itself the right to award the two prizes 
of $1,000 and $500 to undergraduates, if, the merits 
of the papers demand it. 

The ownership of the copyright of successful stud- 
ies will vest in the donors, and it is expected that, 
without precluding the use of these papers as theses 
for higher degrees, they will cause them to be issued 
in some permanent form. 

Competitors are advised that the studies should 
be thorough, expressed in good English, and 
akhough not limited as to length, they should not be 
needlessly expanded. They should be inscribed with 
an assumed name and whether in Class A, or Class 
B, the year when the bachelor's degree was or is 
likely to be received, and accompanied by a sealed 
envelope giving the real name and address of the 
competitor, and the institution which conferred the 
degree, or in which he is studying. The papers 
should be sent on or before June I, igo8, to 
J. Laurence Laughlin, Esq., 

University of Chicago, 

Chicago, Illinois.

Professor Hutchins has been working this week 
in the Art Building to get photographs of the paint- 
ings of the two Walker sisters of the portrait of Sir 
Joshua Reynolds, and of the Titian Drawings. From 
time to time Prof. Hutchins makes photographs of 
the paintings to add to the collection which the col- 
lege keeps. 

The Art Building has received as a gift from 
George Ahearn, Esq., of New York, a copy of the 
catalog of his large and valuable collection of 
paintings, very recently given to the Metropolitan 
Museum of New York. It is a catalog illustrating 
each picture, there being also a short descrip- 
tive notice of the artists whose work is represented. 
Such an example of munificent support of artistic 
interests in the United States goes far to offset the 
frequent assertion of foreign critics that this is the 
land of the dollar only.

NO. 6 


The thirteenth annual track meet held by 
the four Maine colleges at Waterville last Sat- 
urday was the closest that has ever been held. 
The score at the end was as follows : Univer- 
sity of Maine, 46^ ; Bowdoin, 45^ ; Bates, 23 ; 
and Colby, 11. The result was uncertain until 
the last event had taken place, though for a 
long while it looked as if U. of M. was going 
to have it in a walk. From start to finish the 
contest was really between Maine and Bow- 
doin and when all but the pole-vault and the 
broad- jump had taken place Maine had 46 
points, while Bowdoin had 28. Of the 
eighteen points needed to tie the score Bow- 
doin got seventeen and a half. 

Of course it is hard to lose the meet after 
coming so near to winning it, but every man 
went into it for all there was in him and 
it was a good, fair meet with entirely impar- 
tial officials. In so far as chance played a 
part in deciding the contest, Bowdoin did 
not seem to be much favored, especially in 
the arrangement of the men in the trial heats. 
As usual there are a lot of "ifs" which might 
have changed the result, but we should give 
the team credit for doing their best and make 
up our minds to win the meet here in Bruns- 
wick next year. The team was well supported 
and after the meet was over the Bowdoin 
aggregation showed that we can be good 
losers as well as winners. 

It was a surprise to many to learn that in the 
trial heats of the 220-yard dash and the low 
and high hurdles only the winners qualified 
for the final heats, which came hard on us, 
since all four seconds in the 220 were Bowdoin 
men. Only first and second men qualified in 
the quarter-mile. Both of these arrangements 
are directly contrary to the rules of the N. E. 
I. A. A. which requires one heat for second 
men and three men to qualify in the quarter. 

The mile was run in very fast time, the 
record being reduced from 4 min. 43 2-5 sec. 
to 4 min. 38 4-5 sec. Fortier of Maine was 

first, Colbath of Bowdoin, second, and Hick 
of Maine, third. 

The quarter-mile was won by Wyman of 
Maine; St. Onge of Maine was second; 
Chandler of Colby, third. Time, 53 1-5 sec- 

The 100-yard dash was won by Atwood of 
Bowdoin in 10 2-5 seconds with Williams of 
Bates second, and Trask of Colby, third. 

The 120-yard hurdles were won by Knight 
of Maine ; Fraser of Bates, second ; F. T. 
Smith of Bowdoin, third. T?ime, 16 3-5 sec- 

The half-mile was won by Irish of Bates ; 
Bates of Maine, second; Knowlton of Maine, 
third. Time, 2 minutes, 6 1-5 seconds. 

The 220-yard dash was won by Wyman of 
Maine ; Williams of Bates, second ; Trask of 
Colby, third. Time, 23 2-5 seconds. 

The two-mile was another record-breaking 
event. It was won by Bosworth of Bates in 
10 minutes, 18 4-5 seconds. Capt. Robinson 
of Bowdoin was second. He had not been 
feeling as well as usual on account of a cough 
he had last winter, but he led the race till the 
very last. Dyer of Maine was third. 

The 220-yard hurdles were won by Knight 
of Maine ; Clayton of Maine, second ; Fraser 
of Bates, third. Time, 26 4-5 seconds. 

In the field events Bowdoin won points in 
everything but the discus. 

The running high jump was won by 
Meserve of Maine ; Pennell of Bowdoin, sec- 
ond ; Higgins of Maine, third. Height, 5 ft. 
6 in. 

The discus was won by Tribou of Colby ; 
Hetherington of Colby second ; Schumacher of 
Bates, third. Distance, 106 ft. 6 3-4 in. 

The running broad jump was won easily 
by Atwood of Bowdoin with Morrill of Bow- 
doin second. Bass of Bowdoin, and Knowlton 
of Maine, tied for third place. Distance, 21 

Warren of Bowdoin won the hammer-throw 
with Morrill second and French of Bates, 
third. Distance, 114 ft. 9-^ inches. 

In the pole-vault Winchell, Burton and Dem- 
ing, all of Bowdoin, tied for first place at 9 
feet, 8 inches. 

The shot-put was won by Morrill of Bow- 



doin; Farwell of Maine second; Schumacher 
of Bates, third. Distance — 39 feet 9 inches. 
In a try for a record Morrill put the shot 40 ft. 
3 inches, falling short of the Maine State 
record by 4^ inches. 


Bowdoin won a victory from Tufts at Tufts' 
oval, on Thursday, May 16. The game was 
rather loosely played on both sides. Bowdoin 
had the game won a number of times and then 
threw it away, but finally succeeded in clinch- 
ing it in the tenth inning. The batting was 
heavy on both sides, but Bowdoin exceeded 
having fifteen hits to her credit. The error 
column shows seven for Bowdoin and four for 

In the first inning Bowdoin scored one run 
on a single by McDade followed by another 
hit by Stanwood. In the first of the second 
Bowdoin added two more runs. Lawrence 
reached first on a hit, and Claude Bower on 
an error, these two were then scored on a hit 
by Harris. Tufts secured her first runs in the 
last of this inning when two hits netted her 
two scores. Tufts added another run in the 
third. The score remained tied until the last 
of the sixth. Sparks passed Ropes, and 
then Gallagher reached first on an error. 
These two men scored on a hit by Boyd. Bow- 
doin added three runs in the first of the sev- 
enth, and then Tufts added two more in her 
half. In the last of the eighth it looked as 
though Tufts would secure the game when 
Atwood, the Tufts runner, ran home with two 
men out, but he failed to touch third base and 
so was out. Bowdoin tied the score in the 
ninth, and then added two more in her half of 
the tenth on three hits by Lawrence, Claude 
Bower and Harris.

Wesleyan defeated Bowdoin in a slow and 
uninteresting game at Middletown on May 15. 
Bowdoin played loosely at times, and batted 
very poorly. Bowdoin's four costly errors 
helped Wesleyan add to her runs while Wes- 
leyan made only two errors. Bowdoin made 
one run in the third and one in the fourth, 
while Wesleyan scored three runs in the third, 
two in the fifth and one each in the seventh 
and eighth. McCathran proved effective in 
the box for Wesleyan. Files pitched well for 
Bowdoin. The summary :

Faith was the theme of Dr. Black's address 
at Sunday chapel. He said in part: Faith is 
the core of religion. It was upon Faith that 
Christ founded his religion and. by faith he 
caused it to be diffused into all parts of the 
world. By the use of the word "Faith" God 
meant the apprehension of the reality of the 
spiritual world. It is difficult at times to 
preserve this apprenhension. One of the best 
examples that we have of it is Wordsworth in 
the "Ode on the Intimations of Immortality," 
which well suggests the absolute supremacy of 
Christ. Jesus lived so that he was ever in that 
world of faith. It became his point of view, 
and his first object was to seek the spiritual 
world. We, on the other hand, drift away 
from this standpoint because of our regard 
for external things. If to-dav we possessed 
full faith, all problems that confront us could 
easily be solved, for all problems on earth are 
at the bottom religious problems. 


Last Friday two members of the Christian 
Association cabinet and two other regular 
members represented Bowdoin at the State Y. 
M. C. A. Convention at Augusta. On Fri- 
day evening after the banquet, a conference 
was arranged with Mr. Clayton S. Cooper, an 
International Y. M. C. A. Secretary, to get his 
advice on next year's policy for the Bowdoin 
Association. After the conditions had been 
explained, Mr. Cooper advised us to keep the 
name of Bowdoin Christian Association, and 
yet keep the regular Y. M. C. A. constitution 
giving to the article concerning membership a 
very liberal interpretation. The purpose of the 
constitution in limiting the active membership 
to members of evangelical churches was 
merely to make sure that all who held impor- 
tant offices should have an earnest interest in 
Christian and religious work and thought, and 
when next fall the national Y. M. C. A. Con- 
vention is held it is probable that the wording 
of the membership section shall be made to 
include more men, and to be a fairer test of 
purpose without changing its spirit. 

Mr. Cooper, who is an extremely busy man, 
nevertheless showed considerable interest in 
the work at Bowdoin, and agreed next year to 
give us the valuable aid of his experience, by 
spending one or perhaps two days at Bowdoin 
in the fall, organize the classes in Bible Study 

and outline a strong course of study, for it is 
planned to make the Bible Study classes a 
special feature of next year's work. 


To-morrow at lo o'clock will be held the 
trial for the Interscholastic Meet on Whittier 
Field, and the finals will begin at 2 p.m. 
Special efforts have been made to make the 
meet a success, and entries have been received 
from fourteen schools : Portland High School, 
Westbrook Academy, Deering High School, 
Hebron Academy, Bar Harbor, Westbrook 
High School, Bangor High School, Edward 
Little High School, Kent's Hill Seminary, 
Oak Grove Seminary, Thornton Academy,' 
Abbott School, Skowhegan High School, 
Lewiston High School. Over 100 men are 
entered and the contests should all be inter- 
esting. The admission in the morning is fifteen 
cents, and in the afternoon is fifty cents. 


The Library for this week has been sending 
out the following notice to Bowdoin' alumni 
with ballots for the new overseer, and the pro- 
gram of commencement week. 

An appropriate gift for a lover of Longfel- 
low is the poet's first book, written at the 
beginning of his professorship at Bowdoin, 
suggestive of Outre-Mer in style and content, 
and published for the first time on the hun- 
dredth anniversary of his birth. Only two 
hundred and fifty copies were printed from 
type that was at once distributed. 

Twenty copies now remain unsold. Bound 
in full leather with gilt tops, these are for sale 
at the College Library at the original price of 
three dollars, postpaid. 


Those who have been chosen from the 
Senior Class to speak on Commencement Day 
are : George A. Bower, Edward A. Duddy, 
Seth G. Haley, Roscoe H. Flupper, William 
S. Linnell, and Charles W. Snow. 


Word was received Wednesday night that" 
Bowdoin had won its fourth championship ■ 
game, defeating University of Maine at 
Orono, 6 to 5.

. _, It has often been the policy 

t Ch u °^ *^ Orient to make its 

^ editorial columns a medium 
for finding fault with things in general, or at 
least in advocating some radical change. It 
seems fitting, however, to pause once in a 
while and look things over to see where the 
college stands. It is particularly appropriate 
to do this now for two reasons. The first is 
that we do not wish to become famous for our 
"belly-aches," and the second is that the col- 
lege has so much to be thankful for that it is 
only proper to stop a moment to enjoy the 

The baseball team now stands at the head 
of the Maine Intercollegiate League, and we 
should show enough pleasure about this, to 
make the team stay there if only for the sake 
of seeing us smile. We didn't win the track 
meet, we will have to admit, but the old Bow- 
doin spirit was evident when in the face of an 
eighteen point handicap, we came within a 
quarter of an inch of pulling out a victory in 
the last two events. Next year we shall have 

nearly the same team with additions from the 
Freshman Class, and that is something for 
which to be thankful. As to football, spring 
practice is going on and Ross McClave is com- 
ing in the fall. 

Our debating team speaks for itself. It was 
also the best advertisement that the college 
could have had. The fact that Bowdoin, a col- 
lege of less than three hundred students, 
defeated teams from the University of Syra- 
cuse and the Cornell Congress, was heralded 
over the country where people have talked 
about it and marveled at it. 

The flag is flying every dav from Memorial 
Hall. The campus presents a picture worthy 
of any artist's brush, in fact, prosperity is seen 
on every hand. Spring is here all but the 
weather and that will be along soon. 

Questions of A member of the faculty 
Bowdoin Policy recently suggested to the 
1. Growth Orient that in planning 

the policy of the college it would be a great 
aid to the faculty and to the boards, if the 
undergraduate sentiment were known in 
regard to the college's important questions. 
With a view to determining the undergraduate 
opinion, the Orient will print from time to 
time, editorials on questions concerning the 
college, supposing that if these editorials are 
let pass unchallenged they may be considered 
to represent fairly the side taken on the ques- 
tions by all undergraduates, and that if anyone 
disagrees with an editorial he will immediately 
send a communication to the Orient, for pub- 
lication, stating his reasons for disagreement. 

Among the questions that are now before 
the college there are three at least upon which 
the opinion of the undergraduate may be of 
interest and perhaps of some value : To what 
extent should Bowdoin develop along lines of 
scientific instruction, to Vv'hat extent could she 
grow in numbers to advantage, and should an 
auditing committee be organized not only to 
audit the accounts of the athletic team man- 
agers, but those of the Christian Association, 
the Glee and Mandolin Clubs, Dramatic Club, 
and College Publications. 

The first of these questions was dealt with 
last week in connection with petitions from tlie 
Bowdoin Club of Boston to the Board of Trus- 
tees asking for courses in mechanical draw- 
ing, descriptive geometry, and surveying, 
which should enable a student after graduat- 
ing from here to get a degree at such a school 



as M. I. T. in two years (except perhaps in 
the mechanical or electrical engineering 
departments). This question will be consid- 
ered again when the Orient has gathered cer- 
tain statistics it is now seeking to compile. 

The second question amounts to asking what 
is the ideal size for Bowdoin. We want Bow- 
doin to remain a small college, but we want it 
to be the best and strongest small college pos- 
sible. We now have registered 288 students, 
who while they keep Bowdoin out of the class 
of smallest colleges, yet leave room for many 
more without endangering our ideal. The pres- 
ent conditions of accommodation must be con- 
sidered and are as follows: In the dormitories 
there is room for 188, in the fraternity houses 
114, and about Brunswick the present number 
is 86. So before we state our ideal limits of 
growth let us see how these accommodations 
lend themselves to the practical problems of 
expansion. The town of Brunswick of course 
can hold almost an unlimited number of stu- 
dents but how many we cannot exactly state ; 
the fraternity houses are full, but there 
remain the dormitories. These now have room 
for 188 students, and are occupied by 143, we 
evidently have an opportunity for 45 new men 
to find room, and if more than 45 should apply 
for rooms nothing would seem to prevent the 
college according to its original plan, from 
erecting a fourth dormitory to the south of 
Appleton Hall, and so balance Winthrop Hall 
on the north side of Maine Hall. With this 
new dormitory we should then have room for 
about 109 new men, or discounting 9 for men 
who would or do now prefer to room alone, 
we have room for 100 new men. 

And is not 100 new men just what we 
want? An extra hundred would mean a total 
of 388 or about 400 men. Enough so that the 
college could afford to pay her professors 
higher salaries, and keep them here after she 
gets them, enough so that the college may 
work out of debt, enough so that Bowdoin 
could support her organizations without forc- 
ing half-a-dozen duties upon one man, enough 
so that the students could pay for their ath- 
letics, clubs and class functions, without being 
drained to the limit, enough so that both first 
and second teams could be made of good mate- 
rial in every branch of athletics, enough to 
solve the fraternity problem, enough so that 
those living on the campus should outnumber 
those off the campus, and so keep college spirit 
which really lives on the campus wide awake. 

enough to fill Memorial Hall at every mass- 
meeting, enough to make the Bowdoin pines 
ring and crack with Bowdoin cheers, and yet 
not too many to in the least injure the small 
college ideal of personal contact and individual 
instruction. One hundred more men is then 
what we want for Bowdoin, and the best way 
to show our loyalty to her is for each man to 
bring to Bowdoin next fall, at least one prom- 
ising member of 191 1.

Trinity College^ Oxford, April 30. 
Dear Editor: 

I have recently received several letters in regard 
to the future selections of Rhodes scholars from 
Maine and this may be a matter of college interest. 

Under the scheme adopted by the Rhodes Trust 
Committee for Maine in conference with Dr. Par- 
kin, the four Maine colleges were to select in turn 
a representative at Oxford for three years. But as 
the scholarship is properly a state and not a col- 
legiate foundation, it has, I think, been rightly 
decided that after each college has sent one Rhodes 
scholar, the selection shall henceforth be made by 
a committee from all the Maine colleges. 

Next year the University of Maine will select a 
representative and the circuit will be complete. The 
following year no Americans will be sent to Oxford 
as the Trust provides for only two from each state at 
one time. In the spring of 1910 and every two 
years out of three thereafter, the examinations 
will be open to the whole state and the contest for 
election will be between the different colleges. 

These facts ought to attract the attention of some 
in the lower classes at Bowdoin, reminding them not 
to forget the High School Greek and Latin which 
alone is necessary to pass the simple qualifying 

Yours truly, 

David R. Porter, '06.

Last Friday night a mass-meeting was held in 
Memorial Hall to arouse enthusiasm for Sat- 
urday's meet. Nearly every student turned out. 
Kimball, '07, presided and introduced Professors 
Sills and Foster, who gave short but snappy 
speeches. Then Captain Robinson was called upon, 
and he responded in a manner befitting the occa- 
sion. After cheering each member of the team, the 
meeting broke up with Bowdoin cheers. 


On May 10 the Glee and Mandolin Clubs held a 
business meeting in the Christian Association Room. 
The clubs had come out ahead financially this year, 
bv over $125, and decided to have the surplus divided 
among the members rather than spend it on a ban- 
quet. This is the first time for several years that the 
clubs have had a surplus, and great credit for this 
year's success is due to Arthur H. Ham, the man- 
ager. The clubs gave concerts at Bath, Ellsworth, 
Bangor, Oldtown, Augusta, Farmington, Livermore 
Falls, Westbrook, Saco, Kennebunk, Portland, and 
Brunswick, everywhere met with responsive audi- 
ences, and made a showing in every way creditable 
to Bowdoin. 

The elections for next year's club resulted as fol- 
lows : Leader Glee Club, W. J. Crowley, '09. Leader 
Mandolin Club, J. E. Crowley, '09; manager, N. W. 
Cox, '08 ; assistant manager, R. O. Brewster, '09.

The Intercollegiate games between the great East-

Two vacancies have occurred on the Board of 
Overseers, one of which the alumni fill with an 
elected representative. There have already been sent 
out by the Secretary of the Alumni Association, 
nomination blanks, and now according to the plan 
adopted in 1889, he is sending out an eligible list of 
nominees from which the new overseers will be 
elected. Those alumni on the "eligible list" are Levi 
Turner, '86; Ernest B. Young, '92; Frederick A. 
Fisher, '81 ; and Thomas J. Emery, '68. 

The men who went on the Worcester trip to com-

Pennell, '09, Colbath, '10, and Warren, '10. Captain

in the meet but at the time of going to press he was 
not expected to go on the trip because of ill health. 

The Dramatic Club has decided not to give a pre- 
sentation this year. The reason for this is that J. 
A. Bartlett, '06, who was to take the leading lady's 
part and act as coach for the club will not be able 
to give enough of his time to the production of the 
play to, make it a success, unless he should come to 
Brunswick nearly every day, and this would be 
demanding too much of him if the play were to be 
staged only in Brunswick as seemed to be the prob-

CLASS OF 1858 
Rev. William Henry Savage died at Mon- 
treal, Canada, May i, 1907. He was the son 
of Joseph L. and Ann (Stinson) Savage and 
was born in Woolwich, Maine, 27 September, 
1833. His parents removed to Norridgewock 
in his infancy and he received his early educa- 
tion in that town, preparing for college at 
what was then the Bloomfield Academy. After 
graduating with high rank he became Profes- 
sor of Mathematics and Natural Philosophy at 
Delaware College, Newark, Del. Subsequently 
in order to assist more effectively in the edu- 
cation of his brother. Rev. Minot J. Savage, he 
entered into the wholesale flour trade in which 
he was engaged for a time in Portland and in 
Boston. In 1862 he raised a company for the 
Seventeenth Maine and served till he was 
forced to resign on account of disability. 
Regaining his strength he again entered the 
army as lieutenant in the Seventh Maine and 
was brevetted captain for gallant conduct in 
the assault before Petersburg, Va. He became 
a student of theology at Andover, Mass., com- 
pleting the course in 1867. During this period 
he refused to be considered a candidate for the 
chair of mathematics at his Alma Mater. He 
was also offered the presidency of Carleton 
College at Northfield, Minn. His first pastor- 
ate of three years at Holliston, Mass., was fol- 
lowed by one of five years at Jacksonville, 111. 
During a part of this period he was a trustee 
of Illinois College. For a short time he was 
pastor of the Congregational Church at Han- 
nibal, ]\lo. His beliefs becoming too advanced 
for the pulpit of that denomination he returned 
to Massachusetts in 1876 and for ten years 
was the successful pastor of the Unitarian 
Church at Leominster. Then followed pas- 
torates at Watertown, Mass., and at Hyde 
Park, Mass., in each of which he won the 

affection and respect of his people. In the fall 
of 1905 ill health which could be directly 
traced to his army experiences, led him to 
retire from his professional work. The clos- 
ing months of his life were spent with his 
daughter at Westmount, P. Q. "A modest, 
brave, honest, unselfish, gentle-hearted man 
and minister," a fellow alumnus styles him in

With the completion of the new buildings, which were dedicated September 25th, 1906, this school now has facilities and 
equipment for teaching and research in the various branches of medicine probably unsurpassed in this country. Of the Ave 
buildings, four are devoted entirely to laboratory teaching and research. The numerous hospitals of Boston afford 
abundant opportunities for clinical instruction in m dicine and surgery. 


A four years' course, open to bachelors of art, literature, philosophy or science, and to persons of equivalent standing, 
leads to the degree of M.D. The studies of the fourth year are wholly elective; they include laboratory subjects, general 
medicine, general surgery and the special clinical branches. 

The next school year extends from September 26, 1907 to June 29, 1908.

The Ninth Annual Bowdoin Invitation 
Interscholastic Track Meet was held on Whit- 
tier Field last Saturday. It proved to be the 
most successful Interscholastic Meet ever held 
here. Twelve schools took part, about 140 
contestants were entered, and a total of about 
300 supporters were present in the grand- 
stand. Most of the school teams arrived here 
on Friday afternoon, and were entertained at 
the fraternity houses. The day was an excel- 
lent one for the meet and everything went off 
smoothly and quickly. Hebron walked away 
with the meet, scoring 7O3 points, the other 
schools coming in as follows: Portland H. S., 
15; Bar Harbor H. S., 13; Oak Grove Semi- 
nary, 7; Deering H. S., 5^-; Bangor H. S., 3; 
Kents Hill, i ; E. L. H. S., i ; Thornton Acad- 
emy, I ; Westbrook, o; Lewiston H. S., o; and 
Hallowell H. S., o. McFarland broke his own 
record in the 220-yard hurdles, winning in 27 
seconds ; he also bettered his record time of 
17 1-5 in the 120-yard high hurdles, by a fifth 
of a second. Both these times will stand as 
Bowdoin Interscholastic records.

In what was by far the most exciting game 
of the year Bowdoin won her second game 
from Bates at Lewiston on last Saturday, and 
thus gave her five consecutive games for the 
state championship. The game was intensely 
interesting throughout and it was only Bow- 
doin's superb rally in the ninth that gave her 
the game. The game ran to ten innings, as 
have three games this year. The score was 
tied in the ninth with Bates 3 to i in the lead 
and one man out, and then won in the 
next. Sparks pitched finely for Bowdoin and 
kept five hits well scattered. For the first four 
innings neither side scored and both sides 
played brilliantly. In the last of the fourth 
Abbott made a fine throw home and caught 



Rogers at the plate. In the first of the fifth 
C. Bower drew a pass and then scored on a 
wild pitch. It was in the last of the sixth that 
proved the disastrous period for Bowdoin. 
Jordan led off with a hit. Cobb sacrificed, 
advancing him a base. Wilder then got on 
bases on a base on balls which made two men 
on. Johnson flied out, but Rogers got a timely 
hit scoring two runs, and then scored him- 
self on an error by Manter. Bridges was out. 
This stopped the scoring. It looked as though 
this would be sufficient to win the game as 
neither side scored in the seventh or> eighth. In 
the first of the ninth Files was first to the bat 
and filed out. The people now began to leave 
the field considering the game practically over. 
But it wasn't, for Lawrence got a base on balls 
and then IManter cracked out an elegant three- 
base hit scoring Lawrence. C. Bower, with a 
pretty single, scored Manter and tied the 
game. Sparks struck out, and then Rogers 
gave two passes, filling the bases. Johnson 
now came into the box and saved the game for 
the present by catching a pop fly of McDade's, 
with three on. Bates retired without scoring 
in her half. Stanwood led off in the last of 
the tenth with a two-base hit, and then Law- 
rence on a timely hit scored Stanwood and 
won the game. Bates retired one, two, three 
in her half. Bowdoin showed up brilliantly 
at the bat and played well throughout, 
although a number of costly errors were made.

At Orono, on Wednesday, May 22, Bow- 
doin won from the University of Maine in 
baseball. The day was cold and a hard wind 
interfered with good playing. The close of 
the game was exciting. Bowdoin led up to the 
last of the eighth inning, but in Maine's half 
she tied the score, one run being forced in 
with the bases full. In the first of the ninth 
Bowdoin came to the bat and dispelled Maine's 
chances by scoring two runs more in two hits 
and two errors. In the last of the ninth Maine 
added one run but was unable to secure 
enough to tie. The feature of the game was 
the home run by j\Ianter. Abbott played a very 
brilliant game, both in the field and at the bat.

No fewer than 17 Bowdoin men were 
among Maine's Memorial Day orators this 
year. The alumni, with the places where they 



spoke, were as follows : Gen. J. L. Chamber- 
lain, '52, of Portland, at Gorham in the after- 
noon, and at Westbrook in the evening; Hon. 
F. M. Drew, '58, of Lewistoii, at Bath; Hon. 
L. A. Emery, '61, of Ellsworth, at Ellsworth; 
Hon. H. M. Heath, '72, of Augusta, at Sher- 
man's Mills in the afternoon and at Patten in 
the evening; Prof. W. E. Sargent, "78, of 
Hebron, at Greene; Prof. Geo. C. Purinton. 
'78, of Farmington, at Presque Isle ; Hon. O. 
D. Castner, '79, of Waldoboro, at Jefferson ; 
Rev. J. L. Quimby, '95, of Gardiner, at Gardi- 
ner; Geo. C. Webber, '95, of Auburn, at 
Auburn ; John Clair Minot, '96, of Augusta at 
Augusta : Ralph W. Leighton, '96, of Mt. Ver- 
non at Sidney; Rev. H. E. Dunnack, '97, of 
Augusta, at Norridgewock ; and Frank L. 
Button, '99, of Augusta, at Belgrade. The 
list of speakers also included four Bowdoin 
undergraduates, as follows : A. J. Voorhees at 
Dennysville ; W. M. Harris at Good Will 
Farm ; R. C. Clarke at Vassalboro and R. L. 
Taylor, Jr., at Phillips. 


That the helpfulness of a book may not be 
measured by its size is the thought suggested 
by Hugh F. Graham's (Class of 1898) Stand- 
ards of Conduct, an eighteen-mo of only six- 
ty-eight pages. Feeling that the study of 
ethics should be encouraged, the author has 
issued this little text-book. The aim is one that 
all will approve, but the examination of each 
new instrument ofifered shows how difficult it 
is to be philosophical without using terms and 
phrases that are meaningless or worse to 
beginners, or to be perfectly simple without 
seeming to some to be silly. Whatever may 
be its success with classes, this careful expres- 
sion of his own thought is sure to aid the 
writer in his professional labors. 

Bowdoin is proud of the scientists she num- 
bers and has numbered among her older 
alumni. If one stops to count the recent grad- 
uates now engaged in scientific research under 
the auspices of the Carnegie Institution of 
Washington, he is encouraged to believe that 
the mantle of the elders will not fall to the 
ground on their departure. Dr. Oliver P. 
Watts (Class of 1889) of the University of 
Wisconsin, has recently published the results 
of his investigation of the Borides and Sili- 
cides as No. 145 of the Bulletin of the Uni- 
versity. The pamphlet itself and the accom- 

panying bibliography bears evidence of his 
painstaking and efficient labor. 

The demand for carefully compiled family 
genealogies is ever apparent. That the demand 
is genuine is shown by the otherwise rather 
curious fact that they are the only class of 
books of which the selling price is sure to be 
maintained, if not increased, with the lapse 
of years. Mr. A. L. Dennison (Class of 1895) 
has recently published one relating to this sur- 
name which includes several Bowdoin gradu- 
ates and many past residents of Brunswick 
and Freeport. 

A few helpful compilations come to be 
known by their authors' names as if they were 
books of pure literature and of great inspira- 
tional power. Your Webster means the dic- 
tionary, not the orator. Poole refers to an 
index to magazines, not to the dramatist. The 
writer ventures to predict similar fame among 
workers in New England local history and 
genealogy for the admirable bibliography by 
Charles A. Flagg (Class of 1894) of the 
Library of Congress that has been recently 
issued in an attractive octavo of 256 double 
column pages by the Salem Press Company. 
Its full title is its best description, for the sub- 
sequent pages fulfill the promise of the first ; a 
guide to Massachusetts local history being a 
bibliographical index to the literature of the 
towns, cities and counties of the State, includ- 
ing books, pamphlets, articles in periodicals 
and collected works, books in preparation, his- 
torical manuscrips, newspaper clippings, etc. 
Among many helpful features which the 
author's experience in historical research as 
well as in bibiliography led him to introduce, is 
that of a series of county outline maps, 
inserted at convenient points, and showing at 
a glance the relative position of the towns to 
whose history the adjacent pages are a key. 


The fifth in the series of fraternity house 
parties was held at Bowdoin College, last Fri- 
day, Lambda Chapter of Zeta Psi being the 
host on this occasion. The chapter house on 
College Street was tastefully decorated with 
cut flowers, palms, ferns, and smilax. 

The afternoon reception held from three to 
five was very largely attended. The guests 
were received by Mrs. William DeWitt Hyde, 
Mrs. Henry Johnson, Mrs. George T. Files,

The publication of a new 
The New Bulletin series of the College Bul- 
letin, containing a compre- 
hensive report of the means employed by stu- 
dents to work their way through college, is 
arousing a great deal of interest throughout 
New England, and should, as the New York 
Sun has expressed it, "at this time of year, 
when the procession of commencements is 
soon to begin, prove mighty useful literature 
for the college." 

For years we have been haunted by the 
understanding that Bowdoin is a rich man's 
college. Once for all this argument has been 
silenced. Investigation has showed that over 
half of the Bowdoin students earn part or all 
of their college expenses, and the student 
who does nothing towards self-support is 
the exception rather than the rule. Fur- 
thermore, the illusion that has in places 
prevailed that Bowdoin socially was an 
aristocratic rather than a democratic institu- 
tion, is wholly dispelled. Although of course 

there is a considerable number of men in Bow- 
doin who are not working their way through 
college, or who do not even pay a part of their 
own expenses, what this pamphlet rightly 
emphasizes is that there is plenty of opportu- 
nity for a man to work his way, and that 
money has nothing to do with social standing. 
The polished youth of the citv and the husky 
product of the farm meet on the same basis. 
It is true that no charitably inclined State is 
enabling us to lower our tuition, but the gener- 
osity of staunch and loyal alumni has placed 
at the disposal of the college, scholarships that 
furnish instruction wholly or in part for one 
hundred men. 

Interesting and illuminative reviews of the 
Bulletin, have appeared in the editorial col- 
umns of the Boston and New York papers. A 
leading Boston daily after having summed up 
the subject matter of the Bulletin-, concludes 
thus : "Bowdoin alwyas has been and is to-day 
a college where a deep and lasting impress of 
manhood is given along with an excellent edu- 
cation. It is good to find, also, that no aspir- 
ing" youth need keep away from the place of 
the "whispering pines" by fear that he cannot 
finance himself through the four years of his 
course. It is still the mission of the small col- 
leges to provide learning — and that of the best 
sort^for those who are unable to meet the 
expenses of university life in the large cities. 
Long may they remain of their own special 
flavor and usefulness." 

Questions of Bowdoin Two weeks ago the Orient 
Policy. published an account of 

II. Scientific Courses the May meeting of the 
Boston Bowdoin Club, accompanied by an edi- 
torial strongly favoring the action taken by the 
club at that meeting. The action taken was to 
petition the Board of Overseers to establish at 
Bowdoin, elective courses in Mechanical Draw- 
ing, Descriptive Geometry, and Surveying, 
and to hire as an instructor in these courses a 
new man at a $1,200 salary. The idea being 
that a student by taking these courses as count- 
ing toward his regular A.B. degree, could 
after graduation receive a degree from some 
such technical schools as the Massachusetts 
Institute of Technology in two years, whereas 
without these courses it would take him three 

It is not the purpose of the Boston Bow- 
doin Club or the wish of the students to estab- 
lish here a complete scientific course and try to 



turn Bowdoin into a Dartmouth. Bowdoin 
has an important place to fill as an excellent 
small village giving instruction in the liberal 
arts leading to the A.B. degree. It is not 
Bowdoin's place, however, to remain behind 
the times, and neglect the scientific trend of 
modern thought. She should not neglect, as 
has seemingly been done in the recent past, the 
need of growth in our scientific courses ; she 
should rather enlarge them, and keeping up 
with the times, offer such scientific courses 
as may well be considered to lead to an educa- 
tion in the liberal arts. 

buch an extension, by the addition of three 
practical scientific courses, is the suggestion of 
the Boston Bowdoin Club which is heartily 
supported by the Orient. The Orient in a 
desire to learn how such courses would be 
received if offered next year, has made a some- 
what incomplete canvass of the_ college 
through the fraternities, asking what men 
would elect one of more of these courses next 
fall. The figures obtained were as follows : 
Mechanical Drawing, 51 ; Surveying, 28, and 
Descriptive Geometry 18, which greatly 
exceeded expectations. But even if we subtract 
a liberal half of these numbers for such as are 
merely attracted by a novelty, we yet have an 
expression of opinion from the student body 
that should have some little weight. 

There is one more point. This is in regard 
to expense to the college. It is, of course, fool- 
ish for anyone to advocate the establishment 
of these courses if they are not to be first-class 
ones. That is, it would be a great mistake to 
hire an instructor for $400 next year and try 
to run these courses for that amount. It is bet- 
ter to have nothing at all than to have a poor 
makeshift, so if the college is to go into this, 
she should hire at least a $1,200 man and supply 
him with good apparatus, paying for a starter 
perhaps $600. This makes a total of $1,800 
which at first seems large, but if we remember 
that each student by tuition and dormitory 
room-rent pays at least $150 to $175 to the 
college, this $1,800 does not appear so formid- 
able, for, at the most, 12 additional men would 
cover it. And 12 additional men is by no 
means an impossible number, to be drawn by 
this magnet of courses, as may be inferred 
from the fact that the Orient while making- 
its recent canvass, ran across, entirely without 
solicitation, two men who said they each knew 
of one additional man whom these courses 
would attract to Bowdoin next fall. 

The Orient, then, strongly advocates the 

establishment of these three new courses, the 
obtaining- of a new $1,200 instructor, and the 
payment of a sufificient sum to get good 
apparatus. On this subject the Orient espe- 
cially solicits communications on both sides. 

Zeta Psi House Party 

[Continued from page 63.] 

Mrs. Wilmot B. Mitchell and Mrs. Hartley 
Baxter. Mrs. Franklin Robinson dipped punch 
and Mrs. Allen Johnson poured coffee, assisted 
by Miss Sarah Merriman of Brunswick, and 
Miss Alice Webb of Rockland. 

At six o'clock the members of the fraternity 
and their guests left on a special car for New 
Meadows Inn. Dancing began at nine o'clock 
and continued until a late hour, after which 
the chapter house was turned over to the 
young lady guests for the rest of the night. 
Among those present were Miss Mae Low 
of Bath, Misses Mae Despeaux, Louise 
Weatherill, Sarah Merriman and Bertha Stet- 
son of Brunswick, Miss Florence Freeland of 
Fairfield, Miss Vivian Littlefield of Bangor, 
Miss Rena Saunders of Lubec, Miss Marion 
Cobb and Miss Alice Webb of Rockland, Miss 
Abbott of Waterville, Miss Margaret Page of 
Damariscotta, Miss Louise Edwards of 
Deering, Miss Carrie Johnson of Hallowell, 
Miss Betty Bates, Miss Emily Moore, and 
Miss Mitchell of Portland, Miss Charlotte 
Hubbard of Wellesley, Miss Faith Randall of 
Augusta, and Miss Lou Lawrence and Miss 
Growley of Northampton, Mass. 

The delegates from the other fraternities 
were : Thomas R. Winchell, Alpha Delta Phi ; 
Paul Blanchard, Psi Upsilon; F. A. Burton, 
Delta Kappa Epsilon ; A. James Vorhees, 
Theta Delta Chi; R. E. Sawyer, Delta Upsi- 
lon ; C. F. Doherty, Kappa Sigma, and Willis 
E. Roberts from Beta Theta Pi. 


It might be appropriate at this time to say 
something about the college sings. At these 
sings, the whole college gathers on the steps 
of the Walker Art Building soon after supper, 
and sings the old Bowdoin songs and the pop- 
ular airs of to-day. Last year two or three 
were held, and were a very successful addi- 
tion to the college routine. The warm weather 
is almost here now, and on the next vi^arm, 
pleasant evening, Bowdoin should get together 



on Walker steps. This is something that could 
well be done under the leadership of the Glee 
Club leader, and the Orient suggests that he 
take the initiative bv nesting a notice or in 
some other way soon calling a meeting for the 
first sing.

The twenty-first annual track meet of the New 
England Intercollegiate Athletic Association was 
held at The Oval, Worcester, last Friday and Sat- 
urday. Considering the few men Bowdoin sent, and 
the injury which occurred to Atwood's knee in the 
trials Friday, we did very well. In the trials, 
Atwood, '09, qualified in the broad jump — and Mor- 
rill, 'ro, in tlic shot-put; Warren, 'lo, and Pennell, 

'09, who were entered in the hammer throw and high 
jump respectively, failed to qualify, though Pennell 
came close to doing so, equalling the jump of 
_ Meserve of University of Maine. 

Saturday, Morrill, 'lo, took first place in the shot- 
put — with a put of 39 ft. 9 in., thus winning Bow- 
doin's only points. 

Atwood was unable to compete in cither the loo- 
yard dash, or broad jump, because of his injury, 
which, however, is only temporary, and Colbath, 'lo, 
ran in the mile but did not get placed. 

In the trials, Friday, Shaw of Amherst did the 
high hurdles in 15 seconds, thus breaking the world's 
record — but in the finals 15 2-5 was the best time he 
could make — which, however, is the record of the 
New England colleges. 

Horrax of Williams, broke the high jump record, 
clearing the bar at 5 ft. liyi in., the previous record 
being s ft. ioj4 '"■ Gram of Tech. did the 220-yards 
dash in 22s., beating the record held jointly by 
Cloudman of Bowdoin and Swasey of Dartmouth, 
by 1-5 of a second. Udale of Tech. made the record 
time of 9 m. 52 4-5 s. in the two-mile run. Follow- 
ing is the summary, Dartmouth having a total of 47 
points ; Brown, 28^ ;Amherst, 27 ; M. I. T., 21 ; Wil-

The official football rules for the season of 1907 
have finally been adopted, and the rule book will be 
issued within a few weeks. At the meeting of the 
intercollegiate governing committee in New York 
last Saturday,' final action was taken on the rules. 
There will be few changes of importance, it having 
been decided to give the new game another year's 
trial before passing official judgment upon it. The 
rules have all been codified and changed in order 
and arrangement completely. 

The most important changes made at the meeting 

In case of a forward pass, the man behind the 
line who receives a forward pass must be at least 
one yard behind the line. This change was adopted 
to remove the ambiguity as to whether the end or 
the tackle is on the end of the line in certain plays. 

A forward pass crossing the goal line on the 
bound or rolling, whether before or after being 
legally touched, shall count as a touchback for the 
defenders of the goal, instead of resulting in the for- 
feiture of the ball as formerly. A change previously 
adopted, substitutes a fifteen-yard penalty for the 
loss of the ball on an unsuccessful forward pass. 

There shall be a penalty of five yards for a delib- 
erate attempt to draw an opponent off side, as by a 
false start. 

There shall be a penalty of fifteen yards if a player 
interferes with the ball when an opponent is making 
a fair catch. The penalty formerly applied only to 
interfering with the player. 

The kicker and the holder of the ball are exernnt 
from the ruling that none of the players shall be out 
of bounds when a place kick is made. 

Recognition of two lines of scrimmage is made 
in the rule defining the line in compliance with the 
neutral zone rule. 

If the captains fail to agree on the time of halves 
when a short game is desired, the referee shall order 
thirty-five minute halves after ten minutes. 

The rule regarding touching the ball is changed 
to read : "If the ball is put in play by kicking, 
instead of snapping it back, no player of the side 
may touch it until it has been touched by an oppo- 
nent or until it has gone ten yards into the oppo- 
nents' territory." 

A new official, the field judge, was created to act 
as an assistant to both the umpire and the referee. 
He will occupy a position well back of the defen- 

sive team and nearest the side of the field opposite 
the linesman. 

A meeting of eastern managers has been called for 
June 7 to decide upon some method of selecting 
officials in the East. 


The round robin toiu'nament resulted in Hyde's 
being chosen captain. The results were as follows : 
Brown and Martin, won by Martin, 6-0, 6-1. 6-0. 
Hyde and Martin ; won by Hyde, 6-0, 6-2, 6-3. 
Brown and Hyde; won by Hyde, (s-z. 6-1, 6-1. 
Hyde and Haines ; won by Hyde, 4-6, 2-6, 6-1, 6-3, 

The matches in the preliminary rounds of the 
Maine Intercollegiate Tournament, which began 
Wednesday, were as follows : 

Doubles : First Round : Dunn and Young of Colby 
defeated Whittum and Boothby of Bates, 4-6, 6-4, 
6-2. Hyde and Ham of Bowdon defeated Tuttle and 
Campbell of Bates, 6-1, 6-2. Mitchell and Goodwin 
of U. of M.. defeated Smith and Jones of Colby, 
6-4. 7-5. Haines and Pike of Bowdoin defeated 
Reed and Austin of U. of M., 6-4, 5-7, 8-6. 

Semi-finals : Hj'de and Ham of Bowdoin defeated 
Dunn and Young of Colby, 8-6, 7-5. Match between 
Haines and Pike of Bowdoin, and Mitchell and 
Goodwin of U. of M., unplayed. 

The singles were unplayed at the time of going to 
press, but the drawings were : First Round : Haines 
of Bowdoin and Whittum of Bates ; Hyde of Bow- 
doin and Mitchell of U. of M. ; Young of Colby and 
Boothby of Bates ; Goodwin of U. of M., and Smith 
of Colbv. 


The twenty-sixth annual meeting of the New Eng- 
land Intercollegiate Press Association took place at

Fuller of "Smith College." Miss West of "Welles- 
ley Literary Magazine." and Mr. Hinckle of the 
"Harvard Crimson." The annual banquet was held 
in the evening. The following officers were elected :

NO. 8 


For more than forty successive years Bow- 
doin classes have celebrated Ivy Day at the 
end of Junior year. To-day is the time for 
1908 to follow this Bowdoin custom. May her 
Ivy Day surpass all that have gone before ! In 
honor of the day, this issue of the Orient is 
made a special feature. In the morning at ten 
o'clock came the annual ball game on Whit- 
tier Field. In the afternoon came the regular 
literary exercises, consisting of the oration, 
poem, and presentations. After the planting 
of the Ivy, occurred Seniors' Last Chapel, one 
of the most impressive and solemn traditions 
known to Bowdoin. In the evening, and well 
on towards morning, is the Ivy Hop. Good 
luck to the day ! 

The Oration 

The Oration was delivered by Albert T. 
Gould. His subject was the "Influence of a 
Personality," and was as follows : 

Within the last fifty years, great changes 
have been wrought in our social and economic 
history. Forces have been set in motion which 
have soon passed beyond the limits of restric- 
tion and have, like the tide, breaking bolt and 
bar, swept resistlessly over the country. From 
a stage of individualism in labor, we have 
passed to a stage of co-epration. As a result, 
there has been a gradual but inevitable dis- 
placement of the individual by the masses. In 
the case of the working man, the operative 
force has been the trades union ; in the case of 
the business man, it has been the great cor- 
poration. A keen observer of the tendencies 
of the age has declared that the phenomena of 
our social life is constantly undergoing 
change ; and that this change involves the 
destruction of our racial individuality. 

Nowhere is this displacement of the individ- 
ual by the masses more pronounced than in the 
tendency of the rural population to move 
towards the cities, where the individual is soon 
lost from sight. The young New England 
farmer, eager for success, whose imagination 
has been quickened by the thought of "mast- 

hemmed Manhattan," and the Scotch lad, 
whose hopes rise up like fire when he first sees 
the lights of London loom through the fog, are 
both at the last stage of the transition from 
individualism to co-operation in labor. Both 
are driven on by forces from behind, and both 
are likely to lose their individuality as they 
enter the seething crowd that is concentrated 
in the city. If this is a true statement of pres- 
ent day conditions (and the testimony of 
experts bears out the facts), is there, then, in 
our modern industrial system a place left for 
the individual, a sphere for the inflttence of a 

If we look back a few years over our polit- 
ical history, we can see everywhere the great 
men of their party dominating our national 
policy. One need go no farther back than the 
day of Clay and Webster to see the tremen- 
dous influence of a great personality on the 
country at large. There was scarcely a meas- 
ure before the House of Representatives for 
over forty years in which there was not felt 
the influence of Clay's personality ; while of 
Webster it has been said that "his ideas, his 
thoughts are spread over every page of our 
annals for nearly half a century. His ideas, 
his thoughts are inseparable from the mind of 
his country and the spirit of his age." And 
again : "Whoever in after times shall write the 
history of the United States for the first half 
of the nineteenth century will write the life of 
Daniel Webster." A little later we find 
Stephen Douglas dominating a whole section 
of our country ; and following him that match- 
less man, Abraham Lincoln. But has the day 
of the great leaders departed? Has the tide 
of modern industrialism set in so strong that 
the individual has become entirely merged 
with the crowd? As soon as one head appears 
above the surface, is it immediately thrust 
under again? 

In spite of the dark outlook that, a study of 
our industrial problems gives, in spite of the 
fact that the many are drawn into a vortex 
from which only the few escape, in spite of 
the levelling effect of modern capitalism and 
modern socialism, in spite of all these facts 
there must be, and still is, a place for the indi- 



vidual, a demand for a personality. When 
John Cabot and Sir Humphrey Gilbert set their 
course across the western ocean and lifted new 
horizons into view, a whole continent won- 
dered how a single man could work so great 
a marvel. But men of to-day are asserting 
their individuality in no less a degree, whether 
they are seated in offices directing the destinies 
of railroads that bind the country together like 
a network of arteries, or whether they are 
flinging bridges across chasms, or towing 
huge floating dry docks through great 
stretches of ocean to the Philippines, or are, 
like Peary, pushing their way northward over 
the "Great Ice." 

If anyone doubts the worth of the individ- 
ual, he need only turn to the field of social 
endeavor to see how, at the magic touch of a 
personality, new forms of society have leaped 
into being. Take an example right here in 
Maine. None could think of that splendid 
undertaking of Good Will Farm without 
thinking of the unselfish man who conceived 
the idea and followed it to a noble execution. 
Every foot of the broad acres of that farm is 
eloquent of the personality of George Hinck- 
ley. Every boy who is trained there in the 
ways of good citizenship, imbibes, whether on 
the baseball field or as he follows the plough, 
something of the spirit of that man who is 
spending his life in an endeavor to give all 
boys an equal chance in the race for success, 
and who is finding his greatest happiness in 
the undertaking. 

In like manner, none to-day could think of 
the country of Labrador without thinking of 
its greatest citizen. Dr. Wilfred Grenfell. The 
story of his life is to-day a household word. 
With the spirit of a modern viking, and with 
a pure love in the adventure (but with a 
deeper love, also, than that of mere adven- 
ture), he pushed out from the shores of Eng- 
land some fifteen years ago in a North Sea 
ketch, and laid his course for the dark coast- 
line and white icebergs of- Labrador, where, 
until he came, "not a law of man or God ran 
north of fifty-three." In the fifteen years that 
followed, he has created a new civilization. 
He has been like the giant of whom Carlyle 
spoke, who c^Duld hurl a mountain abroad with 
his hands. By the sheer force of his personal- 
ity, he has brought to that country both the 
laws of man and of God. Many men have 
made two blades of grass grow where only 
one grew before ; but he has made at least two 
grow where none grew before. The field in 

which he labors is the unbridled sea ; that vast, 
heaving body of water has had a magic effect 
on the races. From its music the harps of the 
first minstrels were tuned to the wild songs of 
the sagas. In all ages the call of the sea has 
been listened to by the bravest hearts of the 
nation ; but it is a safe assumption to make 
that none ever labored on the sea to better 
effect than this medical missionary who has 
brought the message of the twentieth century 
to a long neglected counry. 

In some respects the country of Labrador 
recalls Stevenson's poem: 

"A naked house, a naked moor, 
A shivering pool before the door, 
A garden bare of flowers and fruit, 
And poplars at the garden foot; 
Such is the place that I live in. 
Bleak without and bare within." 

It is a land of low-lying fogs and grey 
headlands, of sudden squalls and treacherous 
icebergs, a land where the boats of fishermen 
sink underneath the weight of ice that forms 
on gunwale and oar, where men are frozen to 
the seats of their boats, and where on angry 
nights the wind goes shrieking through the 
narrow harbors and tugs at the sod-roofed 
huts. In that land none need ask where such 
names as Deadly Cove, Shark Harbour, 
Sunken Ledge, and Ragged Island took their 
origin. When in these places the sun has 
sunk behind the barren hills, the darkness 
closes down as though the hand of God had 
been withdrawn, and Labrador is left alone in 
her desolation. 

But this land also shares the cold glories of 
the dawn and the "incomparable pomp of 
eve." In it live men and women and little 
children. If they live under the dark shadow 
of superstition, fearing the unseen world that 
lies just bevond, vast and imnenetrable, then 
all the more need there is for some great per- 
sonality to set in motion those forces that 
make for a better civilization. Our imagina- 
tions have been stirred by the tremendous 
undertakings of Alexander, and Charlemagne, 
and Napoleon ; but the empire of a military 
despot sinks to insignificance when compared 
with the creation of a better civilization 
through the forces of peace and prosperity. 
The feudalism of the Middle Ages, the abso- 
lutism of Louis XIV'., even the more liberal 
government of an enlightened despot like 
Frederick the Great, have all gone down in 



the wreck of years. In their place there has 
arisen a new spirit called democracy. If the 
modern industrial system, which has grown 
side by side with the movement towards 
democracy, has resulted in a subordination of 
the individual to the interests of society at 
large, there is still, however, a sphere of influ- 
ence for every man with a personality. 

In the case of both Grenfell and Hinckley, 
the man himself is greater than anything he 
has done. Each is a leader of men ; but a fol- 
lower of a high ideal. Each has proved the 
worth of the individual in our present day 
society. The force that operates to lift the 
individual above the crowd lies in the one 
word : Faith. It takes faith in man and faith 
in God to accomplish great ends. In the 
cathedral of St. Johns, Newfoundland, last 
summer, the bishop of the Church of England, 
as he stood between two of the granite pillars 
that support the roof of that mighty building 
that rises on the mountain side over the har- 
bor where the ships of the first English 
explorers found shelter, and with the grey 
light of Newfoundland streaming through the 
rose window behind him, said : "The heart of 
man, if left to itself, gravitates to materialism 
like a stone ; but it is regenerated by faith in 
a great ideal. Faith is a moral grace, not an 
intellectual acquirement ; its place is in the 
affections."' Men like Hinckley and Grenfell 
do not talk about religion ; they live it. We 
call them missionaries, because they are men 
with a mission. Whether they are cultivating 
principles of justice and right living in the 
next generation of our own State of Maine, or 
are steaming northward under the stars of 
Labrador, with the whole world sunk below 
the horizon, they are everywhere proving that, 
after all, it is the individual that counts. There 
is always a place for a great personality.

Bowdoin Wins From Colby and Secures 
the Baseball Championship of IVlaine 


By winning from Colby on Whittier Field 
last Saturday, Bowdoin secured the baseball 
championship with a most remarkable record. 
This is the sixth a'nd final Maine college vic- 
tory and gives to Bowdoin the noteworthy title 
of undefeated college champion for the year. 
The game was played before the largest crowd 
ever seen at a baseball game on Whittier Field. 
The day was ideal for ball-playing and the 
game was fast and exciting. Sparks pitched 
for Bowdoin and pitched a nice game. While

Undefeated u- i 

„ . every occasion upon which 

ampions ^ team representing Bow- 

doin engages in an athletic contest does not 
necessarily require editorial comment, but cer- 
tainly the closing of a baseball season like the 
one just finished is worthy of the most partic- 
ular mention. Bowdoin is not only champion 
of Maine, but she has gained the remarkable 
title of undefeated champion. An examination 
of all available records leads us to believe that 
this is the first time a Maine college has made 
a record like this in twenty-two years. In 1885 
the first year the four colleges played a series, 
Bowdoin won six straight games, and now in 
1907 she duplicates the record. Especial con- 
gratulation is certainly due, for such a work 
as this. It is not that Bowdoin was gifted 
with a number of remarkable individual stars 
this year, but that every game was played 
hard till the last man was out, that we find 
the reason for winning. Two of these games 
were won in the tenth inning. It was good 

"Bowdoin fight" that is to be praised. All 
Bowdoin men may certainly be proud of the 
record made this spring. 

r „ ri. I J Considerable need has been 
College Cheer Leader r u r ^- .. ..• 

* felt, from time to time, at 

Bowdoin, of having some student whose regu- 
lar duty should be to lead the cheering at every 
athletic contest, mass-meeting, or other gath- 
ering where organized cheering is needed. At 
several of the New England colleges a cheer 
leader is regularly elected every year, and the 
college relies on him to be present at every 
game, or if unable to attend to appoint some 
substitute, and to organize the undergraduates 
before every important contest so as to practice 
the old cheers or new ones if there be any, and 
to sing the college songs. There is no reason 
why Bowdoin should not adopt this same 
method of electing cheer leaders, and at the 
approaching mass-meeting held for the election 
of athletic managers, and members of the 
council, there is no reason why the committee 
of the council which nominates candidates for 
membership to the council should not nomi- 
nate' candidates for a cheer leader, and also 
perhaps candidates for an assistant cheer 
leader. The position of cheer leader is one of 
importance in keeping a strong, live spirit in 
any college, because it means organizations, 
and if this position is filled by election there is 
no doubt that the college will fill it with some 
man who has the true, clean Bowdoin spirit, 
and whom the whole college will be willing to 
follow to every game.

hit fairly hard he kept his head in critical 
places. Shaw, in the box for Colby, kept his 
hits down but was wild in exciting places. 

The fielding of the whole Bowdoin team 
was of the gilt-edged variety. Bowdoin 
secured three of her five runs in the second, 
with Files retired, Lawrence drew a base on 
balls and Manter had fanned, C. Bower and 
Sparks both drew passes to first. G. Bower hit 
to short who fumbled. Lawrence scored and 
Bower got to first. Then Abbott hit a hard 
Manter after getting a base on balls scored on 
Claude Bower and Sparks. 

Bowdoin secured another run in the fourth. 
Sparks reached first on an error and was 
scored on singles by Abbott and McDade.

Bowdoin's last run came in the eighth, when 
Manter after getting a base on balls served on 
an error. 

Colby's one run came in the fifth, when 
Buker reached first on an error and scored on 
a hit by Goode. 

The most sensational, and incidentally one 
of the finest exhibitions of ball playing ever 
seen on the field, came in the seventh inning. 
Buker, first man up for Colby, reached first, 
Guptill then received a base on balls. Ham- 
mond bunted and then got onto the first base 
on an error by Stanwood. Three men were 
now on, and no one out. Bowdoin came in 
for the short field. The next man hit a hard 
ground ball to G. Bower, which was fielded 
perfectly and thrown to the plate. Dwyer then 
came to the bat and drove a hard ball to Man- 
ter, who in turned lined the ball home, and two 
men were out and three on bases. At this 
moment Dwyer walked off first. Stanwood 
signaled for Sparks to throw to him. He 
received the ball, tagged Dwyer out and 
Colby's chance for winning was over. 

After the game Bowdoin, headed by the 
band, marched down the street. A bonfire 
was built in front of the chapel in the evening, 
and a good celebration held in honor of the 
completion of the most successful Maine col- 
lege baseball series ever played by Bowdoin.

The Bowdoin baseball team won its third 
consecutive victory of the season from Bates 
at Lewiston on Memorial Day, by the score of 
5 to 2. The game was slow and was charac- 
terized by the terrific hitting and listless base 
running of the Bowdoin team. Bowdoin was 
clearly superior throughout the whole game. 
Thirteen hits were credited to Bowdoin, includ- 
ing one home run, two three-base hits, and 
two two-baggers. Manter played a nice game 
on second. Harris, '09, pitched his first col- 
lege game for Bowdoin and did exceedingly 
creditable work, allowing six hits. The sum-

A handsome cup has been offered by H. W. Var- 
ney, the jeweller on Maine Street, to the member 
of the baseball team, who in the series of State 
Championship ball games obtained the best com- 
bined batting and fielding average, some slight 
advantage being given to the infielders in the field- 
ing average. A similar cup offered three years ago, 
was awarded to James F. Cox, '04. The averages 
will be computed soon by a committee appointed for 
the purpose, and the cup in the meantime will be in 
Mr. Varney's window.

To the Editor of the Orient: 

My Dear Sir — Will you kindly allow me 
the privilege of your columns to express my 
deep appreciation of the help given me by so 
many of the undergraduates last Friday even- 
ing in removing the books and furniture from 
my rooms during the fire? I am sure that 
without their ready and efficient aid my loss 
would have been serious. 

With renewed thanks, I am 

Very truly yours, 

Kenneth C. M. Sills. 


It certainly seems as though such a record 
as was made upon our baseball diamond this 
spring is worthy of some particular commem- 
oration more than just the remembrance of the 
train of Bowdoin victories. A cup or possi- 
bly banner ought to be left in the room at the 
Hubbard Hall showing what the team has 
done. The Orient would suggest that some 
alumnus or possibly class, desiring to show 
appreciation, might present some suitable 
trophy to the baseball team, to be inscribed 
and left in Hubbard Hall. There is no league 
banner now among the Maine colleges, but a 
simple cup would make an admirable trophy 
to leave as a record to future years. A gift 
like this would be much prized and much

Small, '09, and Simmons, '09, spent several days 
fishing at Lake Farlam last week. 

Mincher, '07, who is an instructor at Thornton 
Academy, was on the campus last Friday and Satur- 

The "Elopement of Ellen" was presented at Rich- 
mond this week, all the men's parts being taken by 
Bowdoin men. 

Harold Marsh, '09, who has been detained from 
college on account of sickness, has returned to 
resume his work. 

Bridge, '09, sprained his knee while playing tennis 
last week, and as a result has been confined to his 
room for several days. 

Indications point to the fact that a sneak thief is 
working the fraternity houses. Last Saturday even- 
ing during the celebration, a man entered the Delta 
Upsilon House and helped himself to a suit of 
clothes, several packages of clean laundry and a 
smoking set of considerable value. The man was 
seen by the matron, but got away before he could be 
identified or the alarm given. Several raincoats 
and parts of suits of clothes have been reported 
missing from all parts of the campus. 


The annual Maine Intercollegiate Tennis Tourna- 
ment was held in Brunswick on May 27-31. The

Last Tuesday evening, Hon. H. M. Heath spoke 
in Hubbard Hall on Public Speaking. He spoke 
informally in an interesting way, and gave practical 
suggestions. In brief, the requisites for public speak- 
ing which he emphasized were, sound health, a well- 
trained voice, a wide vocabulary of simple- words, a 
feeling of nervousness before speaking, ability to 
speak without notes, and a capacity for continued 
hard work. Sound health is the first requisite for 
every man in every position. A good voice is with- 
in tlie reach of everyone who will consistently prac- 
tice, and a good voice well managed has controlled 
nations, Pitt during his whole career swaying Par- 
liament by his well-regulated voice. In speaking, 
the flexible middle tone is the most effective. A 
wide vocabulary of simple words is necessary, and is 
best obtained by absorbing the vocabularies of great 
books ; the best for this purpose being the Bible, and 
the works of Shakespeare. Milton, Webster and 
Lowell. Simple words are the best because 
they are all understood, and do not attract attention 
to themselves from the thought ; the same is true 
of gestures, no gesture is good that attracts attentign 
from the thought. A feeling of nervousness is not 
cowardice, but a sense of responsibility which is 
necessary to give true life to any speech. Every 
public speaker should, however, learn to absolutely 
conceal all nervousness. Ability to speak without 
notes is necessary, for the referring to notes dis- 
tracts the attention of the listeners. And to speak 
best, a man must know his subject so well that he 
can frame his argument while on his feet ; and such a 
knowledge will also give an impression of reserve 
force. A capacity for continued hard work is neces- 
sary, because genius in public speaking is merely a 
tremendous capacity for work in preparation, noth- 
ing comes without work and the more work that can 
be accomplished the better results can be obtained. 
One more thing that Mr. Heath emphasized was that 
the more a man writes the better is his thought. 


On next Sunday, June 9, Reverend William W. 
Fenn, the fourth and last of this spring's Bowdoin 
College Preachers, will speak in the morning at the 
Church on the Hill, and at five o'clock in chapel. Dr. 
Fenn is a Professor of Theology at the Harvard 
Divinity School and is a popular speaker to college

The Orient grealty regrets that it did not receive 
the Ivy Day Poem in time for its Ivy Day num- 
ber. Nevertheless, it now takes pleasure in pub- 
lishing below, the poem in full : 

O beautiful our Bowdoin, round thy walls 

Three times we've seen October's splendor flash 

Like sunset unto flame, and pausing, touch 

The faded green of summer into gold : 

And, when that fleeting gold was wanton sped 

And Nature mourning her debauch was clad 

In penitential brown, fair Winter like 

A kindly chastening angel, wrap the world 

In robes of nun-like purity — a dream 

Of dazzling days, a veil of radiant nights. 

And when at last the glory of that dream 

Was past, thrice have we seen the Earth 

Awake to duty and to work. Like that 

Good monk of old who after years of strict 

Monastic discipline, found Jesus' law 

Meant more than fasts and vig'ls or days of prayer 

Before a jewelled shrine, so Earth flings off 

Her outworn, spotted veil, and joining hands 

With Spring, receives the beauty and the joy 

Qf useful labor. Thus have we viewed the world. 

And found beneath thy wisely tempered care 

Each season makes the earth and thee more fair. 

Parting from thee, on each succeeding year 

Thine ancient halls to us have grown more dear ; 

And now again shall we, alas, too soon. 

Have left thee in the quiet summer noon. 

We shall come again anon. 

But those we've known the longest, 
For whom we've felt the strongest 

Ties of friendship, will be gone; 

Those from whom we learned the ways 
- Of generous, manly living. 
The art of gently giving 
Words of censure and of praise. 

We shall mingle with the crowd ; 

Shall see the chapel spires 

Glow with triumphal fires ; 
Hear the laughter glad and loud. 

But our hearts are beating slow; 

We feel youth's veil is falling; 

And other voices calling 
Softly tell us we must go. 

On autumn mornings 'mid the rustling leaves — 
The sunlight sparkling on the frozen dew — 
We've felt primeval forces reaching through 
The ages, rousing longings books cannot 
Subdue, and only life can satisfy. 
And when the thousand tiny voices of 
The Spring have stirred the pulses in our blood, 
We've dreamed the old, old dream, and longed to 

These dear protecting walls to battle in 
The field of life for that which we desire. 

Yet, as the diver, strong and brave, 

Will hesitate upon the brink. 

And hesitating seem to shrink 
From plunging in the icy wave, 

So we upon the verge of strife 
Recoil ; are grateful for one year 
In which to make our purpose clear. 

And consciously prepare for life. 

Paul H. Povveks.

Last Saturday the Portland Independents 
defeated Bowdoin in a fast, interesting game 
at the Pine Tree Grounds, in Portland. The 
Portland Press contained a racy account of 
the game, and it is appended : 

It was a typical college game attendance. 
A bevy of pretty girls, a goodly representation 
of Bowdoin students, and hundreds of rooters 
for the locals were on hand and they talked it 
up in interesting style. 

The fans missed "Pop" and "Deacon" Raw- 
son. Both men were absent, being in attend- 
ance at the college games in their official 
capacities as coaches. "Simmy" Bernard cov- 
ered second in Rawson's place and was just as 
much at home there as he has been on the cor- 
ner sack. McLlellan was on third and kept 
that part of the slate clean. 

Dwinal and Sparks kept the argument 
pretty even throughout, although Sparks had 
much better support on the receiving end. 
For some reason, Griffin could not seem to 
judge Dwinal's twisters and four of them got 
by him with disastrous results. Lawrence had 
two passed ones, this position, on botli teams 
being the weakest. Bicknell dropped one out 
in right, Lappin one in center garden and 
Dwinal mis-judged a ground ball. All other 
attempts by the Portland men were success- 

Only three Bowdoin men faced Dwinal in 
the first, while Portland started the scoring in 
this inning. After McDonough had failed to 
connect, Kilfedder sent a nice, clean hit over 
Sparks' head. He went to third on Bernard's 
double to right and tallied when Willard was 
thrown out by G. Bower. Lappin windmilled. 

In the second, Stanwood opened with a sin- 
gle, and reached second on Files's drive to 
right which Bicknell dropped. A double steal 
forged both runners ahead a base and both 
trotted home on a passed ball. That finished 
Bowdoin's scoring for the inning, and they 
were one in the lead. 

Dwinal was thrown out by C. Bower in the 

third. McLellan walked and went to second 
on a wild pitch. Bicknell was hit at the plate 
and stole second, both he and McLellan scor- 
ing on a bad throw by Lawrence to second 
and a fumble to Files. Griffin struck out and 
McDonough singled to right, Mike going 
around to third on a wild throw by McDade 
to first and scoring on Kilfedder's drive to 
ITarris. Bernard fanned. With three runs 
in this inning, Portland, had a substantial 

In the third, a double by Stanwood and an 
error by Dwinal, and two passed balls by Grif- 
fin, sent Abbott home. Nothing doing from 
this time on until the sixth, when Portland 
added another run to the list. Lappin singled 
to right. Dwinal sacrificed prettily, sending 
Lappin to second and the soldier player scored 
on a double by Bicknell. 

Bowdoin's next and last tally -came in the 
seventh. C. Bower landed a hit, but was 
forced out at second when Harris drove one 
to Lappin. Sparks flied to Bernard and G. 
Bower smashed one to left, Harris scoring.

BowDoiN, s; Harvard, 4 

Bowdoin ended its season with a rush last Satur- 
day afternoon, when her team defeated Harvard in 
Cambridge by the score of five to four. When word 
was received of the victory last Wednesday, a cele- 
bration was soon started. After the mass -meeting 
for election of manager, cheering was held, a bon- 
fire built, and the student body marched around the 
campus calling upon the near-by professors for 
speeches, which were loudly applauded. The only 
details received of the game in time for publication, 
were that Sparks pitched for Bowdoin, and held 
Harvard to four hits, while Bowdoin made eight, 
and that with the score four to four with two out 
in the ninth, Harris with a clean hit brought in 
Files from third base, and won the game.

The spring athletic elections were held on 
Wednesday evening in the Gymnasium, be- 
cause Memorial Hall had been arranged for 
Thursday's examinations. J. B. Drummond, 
'07, President of the Athletic Council, pre- 
sided. It was voted this year to elect by ballot 
at this mass-meeting a cheer leader from the 
present Junior Class, and an assistant cheer 
leader from the present Sophomore Class. 
About 140 men were present, and the elec- 
tions resulted as follows :

Coach Morrill 

A word of appreciation 
is due by the students 
to B. C. Morrill who coached the track 
team this year. He came to Bowdoin last fall 
drawn by the reputation of "Bowdoin Spirit," 
intending ultimately to take a course in the 
Medical School, and as an aid in his medical 
work to get the position of track coach for the 
whole year, taking a year's course in the 
academic department. He wished to keep 
his amateur record, so that as an underr 
graduate coach, he would be able to compete 
on the college track team. 

He came here at the instigation of Ellery H. 
Clark, of Boston, by this time well-known at 
Bowdoin, and with Clark's recommendation 
as being the most competent coach he ever 
knew. Backed by this recommendation, and 
the support of Doctor Whittier and Colonel 
Wing, he was engaged as head track coach. 
He is the first track coach Bowdoin has ever 
had for a whole year, and he has put more 
time into his work, and shown as much spirit 

as most men who have been here three or four 
years as regular students. He got Ellery 
Clark to give an illustrated lecture in Memo- 
rial Hall on track athletics, gave every after- 
noon during the whole year to coaching track 
men, at the same time keeping up his studies 
and his own track work. He coached for the 
Sophomore-Freshman meet in the fall, then 
for the B. A. A. relay team, the indoor meet, 
the State meet, and the New England meet. 
He did, without remuneration, ^11 this, which is 
as much, if not more, than is expected of the 
track captain, a man who has been at Bow- 
doin for three or four years and has received 
the highest honor that Bowdoin can give to 
her track men. 

The very fact that we were getting some- 
thing for nothing, has made many students 
think that we were getting but little. But the 
whole student body, at least, owes its grati- 
tude to one who has shown the spirit and put 
in the work that Coach Morrill has this year. 
The results of his work were not victories, but 
they will speak for themselves. The B. A. A. 
relay team was in good condition at the meet, 
and on it ran two new men ; it lost by the fall- 
ing of one of our men when Bowdoin was in 
the lead. The State meet was lost by one 
point, 38J of our 45I points being ones that 
were not taken last year. In this meet Coach 
Morrill competed, though not physically well, 
took eleven points, and the next week went to 
Worcester, took first place in the shot-put, 
winning Bowdoin's only points. 


The question of the proper 
auditing of the accounts 
of all the undergraduates 
entrusted with the funds of the different col- 
lege organizations is one of great importance 
to the undergraduate body. At present the 
managers of all the teams have to keep their 
accounts very strictl}' to see that every item 
of expenditure has a receipt, and to submit 
their books to a competent board of auditors 
at the close of their terms of office. This 
same rule should be followed in the case of 
the accounts of the Christian Association, the 
Glee and Mandolin Club, the Dramatic Club, 
the Orient and Quill, and each class. 

Each of the first three organizations men- 
tioned usually appoints a committee of its 
members to go over the accounts of its treas- 
urer or manager every year, but there is no 
auditing system whatever in the case of the 



Orient and Quill, and what is, perhaps, the 
most important of all, that of the different 
classes. In this last case, in the Junior year 
especially, there is a very large sum, over a 
thousand dollars, raised by the class for pub- 
lication of the Bugle and for the Ivy exer- 
cises, and this is entrusted to a few men, with 
no account taken of where it goes. This is not 
quite fair to the class and, even if the class is 
satisfied with the present method, it is surely 
not good business for the Bugle Board and 
Ivy Committee to have no one to whorn to 
submit their accounts. 

As far as the Orient and Quill are con- 
cerned, though any loss must be made up by 
the business managers and no one else has to 
suffer for it, it would be much better for their 
accounts to be as carefully kept as those of the 
managers of the teams. It is not the affair of 
the managers alone, but of the whole college, 
which should take pride in the fact that its 
publications and other undergraduate activi- 
ties are a financial success and conducted on 
a strictly business basis. This year the Musi- 
cal Clubs came out with receipts very much 
ahead of expenditures. It may be the other 
way some time and then the members would 
have to make it up, even as the surplus was 
divided among them. 

The plan suggested is to appoint audit- 
ing committees. The two clubs and the 
■ Christian Association have already done 
something along this line, the point to be 
emphasized is that there should be on each of 
these committees some member of the faculty 
or some alumnus living near here. The 
Christian Association, the Musical Clubs, the 
Dramatic Club, and each class at the begin- 
ning of its Junior year, could each select two 
of its members to act with this outside person. 
The committee for the Orient and Quill 
could be made up of one from each board and 
a member of the faculty. Probably in the 
near future there will be a regular auditing 
committee, whose duty it will be to audit the 
accounts of all these organizations, but, for 
the present, the plan suggested will fill the 
need and should soon be acted upon. 


Last Thursday the Sophomores adopted 
a new and more satisfactory method of elect- 
ing its Bugle Board. Two men were nomi- 
nated by the Sophomore delegations in each 
fraternity, and two to represent the non-fra- 

ternity men. These nominations were put 
before the class which elected one of the two 
in each case. The board chosen was as fol- 
lows : H. H. Burton, Delta Kappa Epsilon ; H. 
F. Kane, Zeta Psi ; C. O. Bower, Alpha Delta 
Phi; J. R. Hurley, Psi Upsilon ; K. H. Dres- 
ser, Theta Delta Chi; P. G. Bishop, Delta 
Upsilon ; R. H. Files, Kappa Sigma ; T. D. 
Ginn, Beta Theta Pi ; C. A. Powers, non-fra- 
ternity. Soon after the elections the board 
organized and elected as its officers, H. H. 
Burton, editor-in-chief ; H. F. Kane, business 
manager, and P. J. Newman, artist.

1908 BUGLE 

On Ivy Day appeared the year book of the 
Junior Class, the 1908 Bugle. It is a book 
creditable to the class and college, though not 
so elaborate as many college annuals, and not 
as expensive as the 1907 Bugle. This was 
issued along the lines to be followed next year 
of trying to cut the cost without changing the 
general character and purpose of the book. 

The cover of the 1908 Bugle was done in 
the class color, with a striking cover design in 
gold. The contents resembled in a general 
way that of the 1907 Bugle, except for a 
smaller number of drawings and photographs, 
and for jokes which were not quite so cutting 
as many of last year's. The board deserves 
credit for its production, and its hard work, 
because it was not organized until last Octo- 
ber, which left only five months time for prep- 
aration, and because the class is so small in 
munber. There are, however, several mis- 
takes in the text of the Bugle, which should 
not have occurred. One of these, to which it 
is well to call attention, is that the Bradbury 
Prize Debate was awarded to the negative 
instead of the affirmative as stated. 


The course in the History of Philosophy, 
known this year as Phil. 2, will be extended 
next year to cover two semesters. The history 
of Ancient and Medieval Philosophy will fill 
the first semester, and the history of Modern 
Philosophy the second. The course of the 
first semester will be open to Seniors and 
Juniors and, with the consent of the 
instructor, to Sophomores. The course of the 
second semester will be open to those who 
have already taken any courses in philosophy 
proper. The hours will be at the convenience 
of instructor and students. 

Phil. 3 will be given, in part at least, by Dr. 

Students planning to take Phil. 6, 8, or 9 are 
asked to notify Dr. Burnett before thev leave 
for the vacation that it may be decided 
whether these courses are to be given. 


At a meeting of the Bowdoin tennis team, 
Arthur H. Ham, '08, was recently elected cap- 
tain of next year's team. 


The Deutscher Verein met at the Gurnet on 
Tuesday afternoon, and took dinner there. 
The A^erein went down in barges, one party 
leaving at three o'clock and the rest at five. 
In the afternoon a baseball game was played, 
and after dinner, speeches were made in Ger- 
man by the many sub-Vereiners who were 
invited to the meeting as to a Fishing Bee. 


On the night before Ivy Day an informal dance 
was held at the D. K. E. hoiise, and several couples 
couples were present from the other chapter houses. 
The patronesses were Mrs. Hartley C. Baxter, Mrs. 
William DeWitt Hyde and Mrs. William M. Pen- 
nell. Among those present w-ere Miss Helen Eaton 
of Brunswick, Miss Eleanor Adams, Miss Helen 
Tli^xter, Miss Marion Harmon of Portland, Miss 
Hazel Hanan of Boston Miss Faith Randall, Miss 
Katharine Randall of Augusta, Aliss Ethel McFar- 
land of Dover, N. H., Miss Emma Putnam of Houl- 
ton, Miss Olive Griffith of Providence, R. I. Miss 
Blanche Leonard of Deering Miss Anna Percy of 
Bath, Miss Pauline Sawyer and Miss Mabel Sawyer 
of Bangor. Music was furnished by Kendrie, '10, 
and Haines, '07, and light refreshments were served. 
The committee in charge of the dance was com- 
posed of A. A. Putnam, '08, G. P. Hyde, '08, and 
H. H. Burton, '09. 


At last Monday night's Athletic Council meeting,

doubtful capacity for accommodation at the James- 
town Exhibition, the Exhibition Committee has just 
sent out complete pamphlets in regard to this mat- 
ter, showing ample accommodations for 60,000 
guests. These pamphlets have been sent to all city, 
town, and college papers in the country. 

Just before the Ivy game last Friday, Captain ^ 
Files called Coach Irwin to the middle of the dia- 
mond to inspect the pitcher's box, and when the

Hlumni flotes 

CLASS OF 1866 
On account of ill health, Mr. Charles K. Hinkley 
has recently resigned the position of organist of the 
First Parish Church in Gorham. Of his long ser- 
vice in this capacity the Portland Press speaks as 
follows : "As an accompanist and director of a 
chorus choir, Mr. Hinkley has had few equals, and 
as an improviser he ranked among the best in New 
England. He has always shown excellent taste in 
the selection of music. Few churches in the State 
have been better served than the one in which for 
two generations he has officiated as organist and 
director with only occasional periods of absence." 

CLASS OF 1867 
An admirable class record has recently been issued 
by the Secretary, Winfield S. Hutchinson, Esq., of 
Boston. The class numbered twenty-five and among 
their thirty-one recorded children are eight college 
graduates. This class is one of the few that has 
annual reunions and sixteen are living to observe 
the fortieth anniversary of their graduation. 

CLASS OF 1869 

The graduating class of the Mining School of the 
State College of Pennsylvania presented their dean. 
Dr. M. E. Wadsworth, with a beautiful silver cup 
on May 8th. The occasion was the dean's sixtieth 
birthday. Dr. Wadsworth came to the State in 
1901, from the presidency of the Michigan College 
of Mines, and in this short period has built up 
this school of mining and metallurgy from an enrol- 
ment of ten students to the 150 now taking the 

Although the Legislature has done practically 
nothing for this school of mines, nevertheless, by 
tireless application to his work for six years past, 
during which time he has not taken a single day's 
vacation, Dr. Wadsworth has made Pennsylvania 
State's School of Mines one of the most practically 
useful and efficient in this country. 

CLASS OF 1877 

William G. Beale, Esq., was recently chosen a 
director of The Chicago Tribune.

the 'Psi Upsilon fraternity was held at the Chapter 
House on Maine Street, Wednesday afternoon and 
evening of last week. At the reception held in the 
afternoon from 3.30 to 5.30 the receiving commit- 
tee was Mrs. George T. Files and Mrs. Hartley C. 
Baxter. The reception was attended by an unus- 
ually large number of people. During the recep-

In spite of the showery weather, a large number 
of students and townspeople listened to the inter- 
esting talk of the Rev. William Fenn at Sunday 
chapel. He said in part : Before a lion trainer 
descends, on his way to the arena, the passageway 
lined with the cages of wild beasts, a light is thrown 
down the alley and by this means the keeper is 
guarded against any beast which might be lying in 
wait for him in some dark nook. This passageway 
typifies life ; the keeper is but one of the many 
mortals that must pass along it; the animals, the 
sins that line the way. The best safeguard that a 
young man can have, as he starts along the passage, 
is light, that is purity from secret sin. Openness 
is to be preferred to secrecy. It is safer, for an open 
error is seen and understood, while a secret one is 
often hidden away and may be exposed at a time 
when it will do a person great injury. 

The great fear in which The Judgment was for- 
merly held was due to the fact that men dreaded 
the time when their secret deeds and thoughts 
would be exposed to the judge. In view of such a 
thing a man should live ready to stand forth at any 
time before the world. The best safeguard for such 
a life is the Light.

NO. 10 

One Hundred Second Annual 

As is customary, this issue of the Orient 
contains a record of the Commencement Exer- 
cises of the year. It is not necessarily intended 
to appear as news, but is edited in order that 
there may be a complete account of the grad- 
uation of the class. The Class of 1907 has 
done well by Bowdoin and Bowdoin may well 
be proud of this group of sons. Sixty-five 
men received diplomas thi« year. The exer- 
cises were well attended by alumni and friends 
of the college. 

The first of the exercises of the week 
occurred on Sunday afternoon when the Bac- 
calaureate Sermon was given by Rev. Charles 
Herrick Cutler, D.D., of Bangor. His text 
was from Matthew : "He that findeth his life 
shall lose it, and he that loseth his life for my 
sake shall find it." He said in substance as 
follows : 


"Who is getting the most out of college life? Is 
it the unsocial fellow who grinds for marks — in the 
fraternity house makes few friends, on the athletic 
field plays to the gallery, is always looking out for 
himself and rarely takes any trouble for any one 
else ; or is it the student who elects his courses and 
does his college work with some reference to his 
ideals and his work in the larger world — who takes 
a generous pride in the honors and welfare of his 
fraternity, who works for the success of the team, 
is alive with college spirit and is always ready to 
lend a hand to a friend in hard luck? 

■'Ask yourself whether in those moments when 
you have become interested in your work — have 
mingled heartily in the good fellowship of the chan- 
ter house and have planned for the welfare of the 
fraternity — when you worked hard for the team, or 
have played the game for all you were worth, when 
you have caught the college spirit, whether in the 
college cheer or in 'the whispering pines' — and best 
of all whenever you have instinctively and without 
calculation gone to the help of your chum with a 
word of encouragement or to lend a hand. Are not 
such as these the enlarging and revealing experi- 
ences of college life through which a man really 
comes to himself and knows that he is finding him- 

"Now I would have you believe that the same 
principle is at work in the larger world,- although to 
many men it is not apparent until they get out into 
it. It is delightful to see how a man finds himself 

as he does his work, whatever it may be, as a form 
of service, and forgets himself as he throws him- 
self into it. The trained eye, the skilled hand, 
or the disciplined mind are found not in the prep- 
aration for one's work, but in the doing of it, 

To what it works in, like the dyer's hand.' 

"The making of the skilled physician and surgeon, 
the able lawyer and wise counsellor, the useful min- 
ister and effective preacher, is not wholly in the pro- 
fessional schools, excellent as they may be, but is 
found rather, as many of us know, in the practice 
of our profession. Whatever skill or excellence we 
have attained in our work has been found in the 
doing of it. And is not a man's best work always 
done when he lets himself go and forgets himself 
in his work? The writer, eager to make his idea 
clear and vivid, abandons his rhetoric and discovers 
his style ; the speaker, intent upon the thing he 
wants to say, in his eagerness to make it plain and 
persuasive, drops his awkward self-consciousness 
and rises to a moment of real eloquence ; the prophet 
loses himself in his message; the singer forgets her- 
self in her song; the citizen throws himself into 
the public service without counting the cost, saying, 
with Secretary Taft : 'I don't speak of rewards. 
The best of all is the pure joy of service. To do 
things that are worth while, to be in the thick of it. 
Ah ! that is to live. The business man who, out 
of many cares and responsibilities, writes inciden 
tally to a friend : 'There's lots of fun in being alive, 
and too much to do for others to worry about one's 
own soul.' — These are the men who are finding 
their life by losing it. 

"If I may use a trivial illustration which will be 
understood only by the elect, it seems to me a good 
deal like learning to drive golf. You remember 
how it was. You made a good many awkward 
attempts at hitting the little white ball, you _ may 
even have taken a few lessons from a professional, 
who pointed out your faults, and showed you just 
how to stand, hold the driver and address the ball, 
but your knee was stiff, your elbow cramped, and 
when, with a jerk, you struck at the 'ball as if you 
would make a 'base hit,' you succeeded only in 
foozling it and in digging up the earth. But the 
day came, happy day, when you gave up the notion 
of 'pressing' and forgot all about your right elbow 
and left knee, and, letting yourself go, just followed 
the ball through. Then came that indescribable 
moment of getting off a clean straight drive as the 
little ball went singing off into space, and you said 
to yourself : Why, how easy it is ! Now what was 
the secret of it? Simply this. You forgot the 
rules and found the ball. E.xactly so. Do we not 
realize ourselves at our best whenever we let our- 
selves free into our task and just swing through it 
in this spirit of abandon? 

" 'The man who renounces himself, comes to him- 
self,' said Emerson, and is it not true of every true 



worker in the world? The mother, the teacher, the 
citizen, the social settler, the sanitary engineer, the 
missionary, all find their life as they surrender 
it in the spirit of service even to the point of sac- 
rifice. It is amazing how the service of man, in 
almost any way, develops manhood and makes the 
man himself as his horizon of interests widens 
and his heart grows big and kind as it takes in ever 
larger measure, human sympathies. The classmate 
you had not seen in years, who has become the lead- 
ing educator, the famous surgeon, the honored mis- 
sionary; how he has grown in stature of manli- 
ness — and yet it ought not to surprise you. 'Doing 
makes the deed,' as has been finely said, 'but 
unselfish doing makes the man.' Brothers, it's a 
great thing to surrender self to something bigger 
than one's self. 

"Something was said at the outset, you recall, 
about the significance of the expression 'finding 
one's life,' or one's self. Now let us mark this other 
term of the paradox, losing one's life ; that is, loses 
it utterly — throws it away for my sake — does not 
such emphasis imply something more perhaps than 
we have yet found in it? Something more, at any 
rate, than what we ordinarily mean by being of ser- 
vice, doing one's duty, making one's self useful, and 
the like? Perhaps there has been something cold 
and calculating in our thought of finding one's life. 
If so, do we not detect here a certain uncalculating 
note of self surrender, not merely of service but of 
service carried to the point of sacrifice, a mood of 
abandon, a kind of 'glorious madness,' the letting 
of one's self go, in which a man throws himself into 
work as if were a game? I think the idea we are 
after is caught in that phrase 'playing the game,' 
which a recent writer, to whom I am indebted for 
both the suggestion and the illustration of it, defines 
as 'the spirit of the game.' It is, he declares, the 
deepest motive in the lives of many people, particu- 
larly men. What, for example, actuates the finan- 
cier to go on piling up surplus wealth, when he 
cannot spend his income? It is the spirit of the 

"Why does Darwin risk his reputation as a scien- 
tist and incur the scorn of scientists and the bitter 
criticism of the religious world for the sake of his 
hypothesis of evolution? It is the spirit of the game. 

"Why does the inventor, Edison, forget to eat 
and to sleep, in the hot pursuit of some new applica- 
tion of electricity? It is the spirit of the game. 

"Why does Commander Peary ask once more for 
leave of absence, and coimting home and friends 
cheap, spend thousands of dollars, risking his life 
and the lives of others in the perilous attempt to 
locate a geographical point on the globe, the scien- 
tific value of which can hardly be justified to the 
lay mind? Again the answer is, it is the spirit of 
the game. 

"Why does the beloved physician and missionary, 
Grenfell, give up his chances for professional reward, 
leave his country and friends, to carry help and heal- 
ing to the poor fisherfolk of the deep sea? Once 
more we say, it is the spirit of the game. 

"Now I want to say just this: The spirit of the 
game, in the sense I have tried to make you see it 
and feel it to-day, is nothing less than the spirit 
of Christ and his principle of finding life by losing 
it. And let us make sure of this : If we miss all the 
rest, that the man who is playing the game, playing 
it fair and playing it for all he is worth in this spirit 

of service for the sake of others, is a Christian man, 
whatever his name or sign, or even whether he 
knows it or not. For he is finding his life by los- 
ing it for the sake of something bigger and better 
than himself, and this is the Christianity of Christ, 
and the rest is only the frills. 

"As I see to-day the host of young men and young 
women who arc going out of our colleges and uni- 
versities, and as I think of their splendid capacity 
for service and for self-sacrifice as they take up 
their work in the spirit of the game, I believe we 
have in them the priceless resources of the republic. 

"Those are stirring lines of Henry Newbolt's in 
which he tells how the ranks of a regiment of Brit- 
ish soldiers on the battlefield, exhausted and blinded 
by smoke and dust, their officers shot — were rallied 
by the ringing cry of the schoolboy on the cricket 
field ; 'Play up ! Play up ! and play the game !' 

" 'This is the word that year by year 
While in her place the school is set. 
Every one of her sons must hear. 
And none that hears it dare forget, 
This the)' all with joyful mind. 
Bear through life like a torch in flame, 
And, falling, fling to the host behind, 
'Play up, pkiy up, and play the game.' " 

"The fact, of course, is that the college graduate 
to-day has no such place of relative importance in 
the community as he may have held two or three 
generations ago ; when my grandfather, about a hun- 
dred years ago settled in a little town in Maine, he 
was then the first, and for some time the only col- 
lege graduate in the community — but to-day the same 
town sends to college many of its boys and not a 
few of its girls. I know that there is no position of 
self-conscious dignity and of vmrufHed self-compla- 
. cency that can be compared for a moment with 
that of the Senior in college about to step out into 
the world, and I want to do anything I can to let him 
down gently; it may serve to break his fall to be 
reminded that perhaps he has as much to learn 
from the business man and the skilled mechanic as 
they have from him. However that may be, one 
thing is sure ; the spirit of democracy which is 
abroad in the land is bound to test the scholar in 
business and the scholar in industry as it has already 
tried the 'scholar in politics,' viz., by his service- 
ableness to the community and by his capacity for 
leadership ; and it is going to apply this test to 
the educated man as relentlessly as it is now trying 
to do in the case of the rich man. "What is he 
worth to society — what is he good for?" that is the 

"Gentlemen of the graduating class — If your col- 
lege life has meant anything to you, it has been 
an experience of finding yourselves. You are now 
facing the problem of finding your place in the 
world. But your college life has not meant all it 
ought, unless it has also taught you the larger les- 
son of finding life, by losing it. 

"The allurements of greed on the one hand, and 
the opportunities for service on the other, were never 
so great as they are to-day. Many men are con- 
fused and bewildered. It is our part, gentlemen, as 
educated men, as Bowdoin men, as Christian men, 
to make this principle of our Master's a bit clearer 
to the world in the terms of service and self-sacri- 




The only noteworthy event of Monday was 
the Alexander Prize Speaking which occurred 
in Memorial Hall at 8 p.m. Gen. Oliver Otis 
Howard, '50, presided over the speaking and

cences of his own college life and prize speak- 
ings of his time before introducing the speak- 
ers. The contest was unusually close and most 

The judges were Stanley Plummer, '6'], of 
Dexter ; Edward C. Plummer, '87, of Bath ; 
and Frederick Chamberlin, Esq., of Boston. 

They awarded the first prize to Alfred 
Wheeler Stone, '10; and the second to John

Class Day is always the most enjoyable 
feature of the Commencement week, if not to 
the alumni at least to the graduating class. 
The Class Day of 1907 was one of the pleas- 
antest ever held on the Bowdoin campus, and 
a large host of friends and relatives were 
present to greet the members of 1907 and 
attend their last undergraduate social func- 
tion. Promptly at 10 o'clock, the class, 
headed by Phillips Kimball, the marshal, and 
accompanied by the band marched into Memo- 
rial Hall, and there the morning exercises 

were given, consisting of the Prayer, Oration 
and Poem. The Prayer opened the exercises, 
delivered by George Herbert Hull. Then fol- 
lowed the oration given by Fulton Jarvis Red- 
mond, and the poem delivered by Charles Wil- 
bert Snow. The officers of the class were : 
President, William Shepard Linnell ; Marshal, 
Phillips Kimball ; Class Day Committee, Frank 
Lyman Bass, Chairman ; Seth Gurney Haley, 
Dwight Stillwell Robinson. The Oration was 
in brief as follows : 


Mr. Bryan, whom we all honor and admire and to 
whom we listened with much pleasure a little over 
a month ago, said to us : "Young men, you can 
never repay your college for what you have received 
from her," and, if it will not seem too presumptuous, 
we should like to take issue with Mr. Bryan on this 
point. Instead of the thought, "we can never repay 
our college," we prefer the thought, "we must repay 

The brave general whose bust rests at your 
right, whose home is just across the way, said to 
himself in the heat of battle, "Little Round Top must 
be held." How far north would our own Com- 
mander Peary ever have gone, if he had said to him- 
self, "The pole never can be reached." Instead of 
leaving this college with the thought that we can 
never repay her we prefer to leave with the thought 
deep down in our hearts, "we must repay her." How 
shall we do it? 

There are three inherent powers that we can well 
cultivate. For what we have received, first, should come 
realization, then appreciation, and greater than these 
two will be application. 

After the excitement and confusion of these few 
days are over, it would be well for us all to take 
time to think a little of the things we have accom- 
plished, for we all have accomplished something of 
the mistakes we have made, the events of our lives, 
of their causes, their effects, their connections. 

Realizing that much has been done for us how 
shall we appreciate it? Is it sufficient simply to say 
thank you and forget? 

Perhaps the best way for us to show our appre- 
ciation will be through application. Application of 
the lessons we have learned in the worldly strug- 
gle which awaits us. To our professors, you who 
are giving that which is best to the world and whose 
worldly recompense in comparison is so small, to 
you we would say that in our own living we hope 
to profit from your example, that to enlighten our 
fellow-men with the truth is better than to horde 
up gold. From our association we cannot help from 
living firmer, truer, more manly lives. In our own 
living, not in dollars and cents, will we repay you. 

Our undergraduate associates, from whom we 
have learned the value of fair, open-hearted dealing 
and good-fellowship, you we would repay by striv- 
ing to follow these same principles in contact with 
our fellow-men of the outside world. 

To the alumni we would say that your deeds 
serve as an inspiration for us to uphold the honor 
of an institution which you and your predecessors 

'rt a 

n •s

have raised so high. From your example, from the 
inspiration which we receive from you, we hope to 
live the lives of honest, broad-minded, kind-hearted, 
true Bowdoin men. 

To our parents we would say simply that the same 
love, the same self-sacrifice, the same God-speed 
which we have received from you in these years, in 
the years to come we will attempt to bestow upon 
your children's children. 

Thus would we repay our Alma Mater by apply- 
ing in our own living the lessons which have been 
so generously taught us. 


The Poem, by Charles Wilbert Snow, was 
as follows : 

Could we but strike the poet's lyre and find 
Sweet music that would make the heart o'erflow. 
With something of the grace of that rare mind 
Which Nature gave a hundred years ago. 
We'd sing with truth the gratitude we owe 
To her who's nursed us gently year by year — 
Implanting wheat where tares were wont to grow. 
And pointing out the distant vision clear, — 
But ah ! the notes fall rough on our untutored ear. 

What halos 'round thy rich traditions dwell ! 
Dear Bowdoin, guardian of this sacred site 
We feel our faithful fathers builded well ; 
'Gainst new-world obstacles and old-world spite. 
The darkest land is brighter for thy light, 
The uninviting northland better known. 
Our civic weal has felt thy touch of white, 
And Earth's dark secrets yielded up their own. 
Thy lettered bloom hath riched the peasant cot and 

To-day another class will join the throng 

Of those who tarried for the power on high, — 

Withdrawing from the battle's smoke and song. 

To view the issue with unclouded eye — 

O happy thought ! tho far away we hie 

Our separation cannot be complete. 

For true as star lights star throughout the sky. 

Thy spirit with our own has learned to meet. 

To check us in Success and cheer us in Defeat. 

Four years beneath these elms and round these halls 
We've felt Art's promptings and kind Nature's aid ; 
The quiet pines and far off rushing falls. 
The shining stars on lawns light and shade; 
The sweet, frank converse where distinctions fade, 
And soul links soul in Friendship's happy bands 
We've visioned threatening tides of error staid 
Seen world-old seas exulting on glad lands 
Because the golden dream had touched men's hearts 
and hands. 

Who says the dreams and visions will be lost. 

As forth into the bigger world we fare; 

And hopes be blighted by Strife's chilling front. 

And all our pure ideals swept in air? 

As when the sun sinks down in dazzling glare. 

He leaves behind a prismed afterglow. 

So we, though forced to dine on frugal fare. 

Will ever keep those appetites which go 
To make Life's bread more fine, its wine more free 
to flow. 

Beneath the outward life of Freedom's ease 
Deep inward wars are waged through all these years, 
'Tis vain to bid the clashing voices cease 
They'll e'en pass by a mother's tender tears; 
As when a star for which a sailor steers 
Glides down beneath a lightower's larger glow 
Whose gleams remove the sailor's night-long fears ; 
So we, when supernatural lights burn low 
Have seen Earth's watch-towers rise and brighter 
light bestow. 

From out these towers on strategetic Heights 
Has streamed the patient influence of God, 
Imbuing mighty mounts with Beauty's lights. 
And adding courage to the hills' dull clod. 
But Oh ! the long, long ages 'neath the rod. 
We're heart-sick that the Hermons are so few, 
We'd mantle modest Mizar's struggling sod. 
Grant small and great the longed for roseate hue. 
And make them both to know they've God's great 
work to do. 

We feel the time must come when man shall know 

The mysteries of matter and of mind. 

And grasp the secret of each inner foe 

And then — the readjustment of mankind; 

The unconscious goal of all that lies behind; 

On that sweet dewy eve of perfect light 

In looking backward we, perchance, shall find 

In Sin the birth-pangs of a clearer sight 

In Hope the gleam of cloud by day, of fire by night. 


At three o'clock in the afternoon occurred 
the customary exercises under the Thorndike 
Oak. The Opening Address, Class History 
and Parting Address were given and then the 
class, pursuing the time-honored custom, 
smoked the Pipe of Peace, sang the Class Ode, 
marched around the campus and cheered the 
halls and then said their final farewell in front 
of the chapel. Nothing is more impressive 
than the final circle when the "last handshake" 
is given and the members of the class conclude 
their exercises of the day and of their college 
course, by each member saying farewell to 
every classmate. The Opening Address was 
delivered by Ammie Blaine Roberts ; the His- 
tory by Robert Alexander Cony ; and the Clos- 
ing Address by Edward Augustin Duddy. 


The Opening Address was in substance as 
follows :

the merciless advance of scientific research have 
made the world of to-day a logical, practical abode 
for a rationalistic people. The spirit of the times 
points the index finger of scientific doubt at whole 
sections of orthodox religion. And so we are con- 
stantly hearing of the conflict between science and 
religion, of the gospel for an age of doubt. 

On our own part we freely admit that we are in 
sympathy with the rationalistic attitude of the day. 
But that we are identified with this accusation of 
doubt, we admit only in-so-far as such a statement 
means that we stand ready to question fanciful 
assertion and groundless guess work, whether it 
gushes from the campaign spellbinder or emanates 
from the dimly-lighted sanctuary. 

Yet in such a world as this there are many possi- 
bilities for misunderstanding. What do we mean by 
doubt? What do we mean by faith? The man who 
doubts everything is not a doubter. He is a flouter, 
he is a mule. The real doubter is essentially a man 
of faith. He tests a given proposition by reason 
developed by experience. When he accepts it, he 
believes in it with the faith that moves mountains. 
When he repudiates it, he simply transfers his faith 
to a worthier object. But all the time this so-called 
doubter is a man of the deepest-rooted faith. This 
is what Tennyson referred to, when he wrote, 

"There is more faith in honest doubt, 
Believe me, than in half the creeds." 

And what is faith? Faith is not blind belief in 
picture language ; it is not the unreasoning accept- 
ance of indiscriminate humbugs. No, ^ for these 
things make up superstition, and superstition is the 
fear of the ignorant. Faith, confidence, belief is 
something different, something better. Faith is based 
on knowledge ; faith is of the things we know. 
Belief in the things that nobody knows is not faith; 
it is childish superstition, primitive, barbarous. 

Now there are two kinds of faith, head faith and 
heart faith. So far we have considered only the 
faith of the intellect, the kind of faith that concerns 
an age of reason, the kind of faith that attaches to 
facts and theories and propositions, faith in things 

Heart faith resides in the things we feel, the emo- 
tions of the inner life. And it is in this faith of the 
heart, where beauty is. In affairs of heart and feel- 
ing, love and friendship, our belief trusts on — beau- 
tiful, unshattered faith. 

We are charged with living in an age of reason 
and an age of doubt. Intellectually this is true. 
Otherwise we would stagnate and repeat the history 
of the Dark Ages. As it is, we are living in an era 
of progress and, best of all, in the deep heart-mean- 
ing of the word, we are living in an age of faith. 

And it is because we are living in an age of faith, 
because we believe in you and you have confi- 
dence in us, that these exercises are held this after- 
noon. It is because of this atmosphere of mutual 
faith, that we welcome you gladly, joyfully to these 


The History was given by Robert Alexan- 
der Cony, and is as follows : 

To write the history of this band of heroes that I 
now have before me is no easy task. To do so would 

require more ability and a greater knowledge of 
their conduct than is possessed by any one mortal. 
For to tell you all a secret, this great class has been 
making lots of history, but it hasn't all been done in 
the class room or on the campus, nor on the athletic 
field. Some have made history in Lewiston, some 
in Bath, and some even in Topsham. And the worst 
of it all is, much of it has never been told by those 
who figured prominently. 

Recognizing, then, my own limitations, in the lack 
of data on many historical events that would surely 
be of interest, and with apologies to Gibbons, Ban- 
croft, Prescott, Allen Johnson and Jim Voorhees, I 
will now proceed to tell you some things I know and 
some I can guess about the famous Class of 1907. 

In the first place, I wish to say that I shall not 
deal with figures unimportant as some details of the 
great historians of the past have done here under 
the Thorndike oak. I take it for granted not a single 
person, with the possible exception of his shoe dealer 
cares whether Jim Collins really wears a No. 14 shoe 
or whether they only look so; or whether Fat 
Chandler is really the laziest man that ever entered 
Bowdoin, or that it is simply a rumor; or whether 
Frank Jones Weed and Whatmore Whitmore can 
reach the latch on the library door without high- 
heeled boots, or whether it is a false statement inade 
by those who have watched them try; or, again, 
whether Winnie Smith is really handsomer than Joel 
Fernald, or that Winnie's girl only thinks so. I 
take it for granted that these are the minor details 
that a truly great historian like myself should not 
bother his head with. Therefore, I will proceed 
with my history. 

In the latter part of September, 1903, the fall 
installment of green goods arrived on the campus. 
If I remember correctly, the weather was cloudy and 
promised rain — a promise which was completely ful- 
filled by subsequent events, though I am bound to 
add that it did not come from the open sky as often 
as it did from open windows. We did not mind 
this, however, after a while. Still we were not ready 
for that strange combination administered to us the 
evening of the night shirt parade from the windows 
of old North Winthrop. Perhaps it was this inci- 
dent that gave one or two of our members such a 
great antipathy for water during subsequent years. 

But before going further, as a chronicler of great 
events, I feel bound to mention the great oration 
delivered in front of the old Tontine by Pete Small 
the evening before college opened. "Pete" has not 
distinguished himself in oratory during his course, 
choosing rather the more modest field of gym work, 
in which he has been taking special work under the 
guidance of Doc. Whit and his first assistant acrobat, 
George Parcher, but those who heard Pete speak on 
that September evening, feel sure that it is only his 
modesty that is keeping him from being a true 
Demosthenes. Pete had all the articulation that is 
supposed to come only after a thorough training in 
Professor Mitchell's famous "Hello, John, Where 
Are You Going," he had all the pleasing, persuasive 
powers of Fulton Fell-in-the-brook Redman ; and 
finally, he possessed all the logic which the better- 
known and more disreputable Mitchell — Harry, the 
Midnight Howler — displays in his famous oration 
entitled "How, When and Where to Hit a Golf 
Ball." But I am digressing. 

We went to chapel that first morning, after the 
habit of Freshmen. Doc Whit was there as usual 



with a determined look — and so was the molasses. 
The difference between the two was that the former 
depended on his looks to keep us spellbound, while 
the molasses depended on its hold. 

I may say that '07 was a good big class by the 
end of that first week. I don't remember just how 
many there were, but as near as I can recall, its size 
resembled the age of some of the Brunswick belles — 
that is to say, 70 odd. 

We did not know each other as well Freshman 
year as we do now. Wilbert Snow, the great poet 
and student of Sanscript, had not entered into the 
bonds of holy matrimony with Animie Blaine Rob- 
erts, nor had Tom Hacker and Brick Drummond 
joined the Lisbon Falls German Club, which I must 
explain here, has no affiliation with the Deutscher 
Verein. Neither had Frankie Bass and Bill Haines 
become joint members of the primary division of 
the Congregational Sunday School. 

On the whole, we got along quite nicely. Your 
first year, nearly everybody behaved themselves but 
Bill Speake, and nobody expected he would. So no 
one was disappointed. He visited neighboring 
borough occasionally, felt perfectly free to give due 
notice of his return on the midnight, and he told the 
upperclassmen to remove themselves to a warmer 
climate if they didn't like his ways. 

Winnie Smith didn't fare as well. He got fresh 
one evening and the late Class of 1906 removed a 
large percentage of his hirsute growth, and the 
worst of it was that it was not done in the same artis- 
tic manner and with the same view to beauty that 
our friend Joe would have done it. Still, it did not 
prove a permanent injury and Winnie has taken to 
himself a sweetheart in these later years.. 

We were not especially successful in athletics that 
year. We lost two games of baseball despite the 
fearful and wonderful game put up by Fat Chand- 
ler behind the bat. The first game, by a score of 
8 to 7, and the second 13 to 7. In football we were 
just as unlucky, losing by a score of 11 to o. In 
track, however, we showed what we were really 
good for, tieing with the Seniors for first place with 
22 points. 

Sophomore year came apace and passed off very 
serenely. There were, however, several events of 
such importance that an impartial chronicler cannot 
pass them by. Among these were' Ammie Roberts' 
psychological experiments with white tennis shoes. 
Ammie had become interested in psychology and had 
performed several rare experiments to the great 
delight of his instructor, among which was stand- 
ing on his head while eating breakfast, sleeping with 
his feet stuck out the window, and lastly, trying to 
imagine himself a second Daniel Webster. Then he 
tried to drawl like Dr. Grenfell with such delightful 
results that he took up the tennis shoe racket, and 
was able to deduce the startling result that when it 
was cold his feet had a "feeling" of coldness, and 
when it rained they had a "feeling" of wetness. 
These results are considered a great achievement of 
the age by both his professor and Ammie. Some of 
Ammie's classmates have suggested that he soak his 
head for the psychological effect, but he has never 
concluded to do so. 

And speaking of Ammie reminds me of another 
great member of our class — Charles Wilbert Homer 
Snow. They are great chums — Homer Snow and 
Socrates Roberts. They drink together, eat together 

and sleep together — that is, when they sleep, for 
they sit up late o' nights each telling how brilliant 
he thinks the other is. Robert Burns Duddy belongs 
to this category somewhere, but as our economic 
professor would say, "More of this later," for ye 
shall hear Robert shortly, if you and I and he sur- 
vive to the end of this history. 

Among other events of Sophomore year was the 
announcement of Tommie Hacker's 'engagement 
and Fat Chandler's first and futile attempt to pass 
off his extra course. He has tried it twice since 
and has at last succeeded. Fat is a persistent youth 
and as you see is bound to be a winner. This was 
also the year that Fult Redman fell off the bridge 
out by the golf links, and narrowly escaped from 

I don't remember much of anything else about that 
year except that we won both ball games from the 
Freshmen — the first by a score of 23 to 6, and the 
second 7 to 6. In football we were victorious by a 
score of 11 to o, and we rounded out the year by 
winning the Indoor Meet with 34^ points, while our 
nearest competitors, the Seniors, had but 19^. 

Junior year arrived according to schedule. I don't 
remember of any one studying except Eddie Pope 
and Sam Erskine. Sam studied because Daniel Web- 
ster did when he was in college, and Eddie studied 
the same as Mitchell smokes cheap cigars — from 
pure cussedness. Snitch Upton began to shine in 
golf so much that it began to interfere with his col- 
lege course about this time; and Frankie Weed 
began to reform, while Hacker, otherwise known as 
Whacker, went the other way. 

We had several new members arrive with the fall 
season. There was String and Jolup Webber, Shorty 
Whitmore, Lengthy Adams and last but not least, 
Parson Hull. A strange lot, I must admit, and it is 
pertinent that I speak of them briefly. Jolup, I will 
say, is a pretty good fellow and has behaved himself 
well for the most part ; String, his brother, has also 
done fairly well. The worst thing that can be said 
about him is that he takes an occasional trip in 
Mitchell's Night Wagon. Still, he may live this 
down. Soxalexis Adams, fresh from the Penobscot 
tribe, has also done well. He chums with Frankie 
Bass more or less, which is something of a reflection 
on his character. They look funny going around 
together, but Frank hangs onto Sock because he 
thinks Sock stands well with the opposite sex, and 
according to Frankie's highest ideals that's the true 
essence of life. Once they took their sweethearts 
out to the golf links. Frankie's girl was a grammar 
school student, as usual, and people along the street 
thought it was Sock and his family. Still, Frankie 
says he hopes to be a man some day, and says he 
intends to raise a moustache as soon as he can for 
he says the ladies tell him they think he would look 
well with one. Here's hoping he succeeds in both. 

But I have not told you about the Parson — that 
greatest acquisition to 1907 — that peerless orator, 
that prince of parliamentarians, that famous psy- 
chologist — Parson Hull. As shines Upton in golf, as 
Snow in poetry and Bruce Sargent among the ladies, 
so shines Hull among orators. His greatest victory 
was in the great debate over simplified spelling. Hull 
was opposed to it. The way he proved his many 
points brought tears to the eyes. He proved beyond 
a shadow of a doubt that if Roosevelt's spelling was 
adopted, Peary could never reach the pole; that the 



Brown-Tail ]\Ioth would overrun Topsham; the 
Japanese would bombard San Francisco; that New 
Meadows Inn would close and last but not least the 
people of South Freeport would go to the hot cli- 
mate. At the conclusion Professor Foster told the 
audience that the debate was beyond his ability to 
criticise — and Hull's name and fame was secure for- 
ever. I don't remember anything further about 
Junior year, except that we won the Indoor Meet — 
as usual. 

Senior year drew on apace. We have all enjoyed 
ourselves and have done nothing in particular. In 
the early part of the year Neal Doherty and Charlie 
Thomas worked overtime trying to raise a moustache. 
Neal said he thought with a moustache he could 
fool Prof. Ham into thinking that he was working 
too hard on the German to have time to shave. He 
tried everything on that moustache, beginning with 
cold cream and ending with a vigorous dose of Dr. 
Whit's hunyadi water. They all failed and now he 
says he is ashamed of the whole affair. He ought to 

As I have already stated, I shall not undertake to 
give statistics or anj'thing like a definite forecast of 
the future intentions of this all-star aggregation. I 
feel safe in saying, however, that Snitch Upton will 
never do much of anything unless he has to ; and that 
Harry Brown's another. I haven't a doubt that 
Hacker will marry as soon as he can find a minister 
after he gets his "dip" Thursday. Further than that 
I have nothing to say. 

In conclusion I might add that we have not been 
much different than the average class. Possibly we 
are not the most brilliant class and I am sure we are 
not the worst. We are not all as good as Parson 
Hull nor all as bad as Bill Speake. On the whole, 
we are an average lot. We have enjoyed our four 
years beneath the whispering pines and if we do 
nothing worse in the next few days than we have in 
the past four years, our college course on Thursday 
will be, like this history, at an end. 


This was delivered by Edward Augustin 
Buddy and he dosed with the following 
words : 

"We have anticipated a little, the difficulties and 
the changes that are to come, but ever from this 
day things will never be quite the same to us again. 
The campus will never look just the same as it does 
now. Maine Hall and Winthrop and Appleton— 
the very sound of old King Chapel bell will seem 
different because we will be different. We will come 
back again, yes, but there will be one or two faces 
missing, always 'one or two. Or it will be an old 
instructor that we all knew and loved, he will be 
missing. And those that do come back won't be 
just the same to each other; there will be marks of 
a new conflict in the old familiar faces. It will be a 
different world then, with the old days' life a dim 
golden dream in the far-off past. It will be a world 
of pleasant recollection in which the Class Day of 

1907 will be memorable. It is hard to think that 
that world is so close at hand, and this so nearly at 
an end. Yet we would not shirk our share of the 
world's burden more than Bowdoin men have done 
before us, but with hearts brave yet tender, go 
forth, go forth from the old mother to live and fight 
and die and in our death to live." 


The Parting Ode by Edward Augustin 
Duddy was written to the air, "Come Back to 
Erin," and was as follows : 

Bowdoin, we leave thee, O Mother Beata ! 

Leave thee, but leave thee as never before. 
Thy sons forever, we sing in thy honor. 

Our parting tribute to thee we adore. 
Dear were the hours that we passed in thy bosom. 

Fond are the mem'ries we bear in our hearts. 
Softly the leaves in the trees sigh above us. 

Sad are thy sons when 'tis time to depart. 

Then farewell to Bowdoin, our dear Alma Mater 

Farewell, the scenes and the friends that we knew. 
Clasp hands, O comrades, the sun's getting lower, 

And it's the parting of friends good and true. 

And through life's journey whate'er be fate's sorting. 

Backward our thoughts we will aye turn to thee, 
Back to the moment of sadness and parting 

When from thy guidance we went forth so free. 
Faint tho' our hearts be in darkness and struggle. 

Dim tho' our eyes with sad memory's tears. 
Thy halls vvill rise like a vision of splendor, 

Strong with new hope we will fly 'cross the years, 


In the evening, as a finale for the day, 
occurred the annual Commencement Hop, 
which was a most brilliant and enjoyable social 
function. The Hall was simply but tastefully 
decorated with flowers and potted plants. The 
committee very sensibly did not mar the nat- 
ural beauty and dignity of the hall by the aid 
of streamers and fancy paper, but let the hall 
itself speak plainly the purpose for which it 
was intended. The Committee of Arrange- 
ments was Frank L. Bass, Seth G. Haley, and 
Dwight S. Robinson. Music was furnished 
by Pullen's Orchestra. The patronesses were 
Mrs. William DeWitt Hyde, Miss Helen 
Chapman, Mrs. Franklin C. Robinson, Mrs. 
George T. Files, Mrs. Roscoe J. Ham, Mrs. 
Roswell C. McCrea.

Death of Three Editorial Board of the 

Undergraduates q^^^^^ ^ ^^^^^^ ^j^^^^ ^^an 

that which compels us to report the death of 
three Bowdoin students during the first part 
of the summer. Harry Dugan, John Franklin 
Morrison, Richard Almy Lee, these three have 
been taken from us this year. It can hardly 
seem possible that we will never see any of 
these three again. Henry Dugan was drowned 
in Penobscot Bay during the first week of July 
and the other two met the same sad fate a 
week later while off on a cruise together. 
Dugan was a member of the Class of 1910, of 
the Delta Upsilon fraternity and an exceed- 
ingly well-liked and popular fellow. Richard 
Lee and John Morrison were both members of 
1908 both just about to enter on the last year 
of their college course. The former was an 
Orient editor, manager of the Track Team, 
and a member of Beta Theta Pi. He was the 
only son of Prof. L. A. Lee. John Morrison 

came from Medford, Massachusetts, was a 
member of Alpha Delta Phi, made Phi Beta 
Ivappa at the end of Junior year, was man- 
ager of the Tennis Team and identified with 
many undergraduate interests. 

It means little to say that both were "pop- 
ular," and it seems trite to repeat it. Both 
were more than popular, they were whole- 
souled, clean-cut college fellows. They were 
loyal college men, hard workers for class 
and Alina Mater. Both were good students, 
but more than that both were fine fellozvs. 

It is not now in the summer time when 
class and college mates are scattered that we 
will miss them. It is hard to believe now, but 
how will it be when once again we gather in 
the dormitory and chapter house and those 
faces are not there to greet us? Then it will 
be that we will realize what Death is, and what 
Death has taken from us. To the relatives 
the Orient extends its sincere sympathy, to 
all their many friends, as one of their former 
friends itself, it can but say "God's will be 


Bowdoin College this spring loses Prof. R. 
H. Ham, for next year he has accepted the 
Professorship of French at Trinity College. 
The student body greatly regrets the loss of 
Professor Ham, for during his six years at 
Bowdon he has proved himself one of the most 
capable men on the faculty, and not only has 
given those in his classes a thorough and val- 
uable instruction, but he has won the love and 
respect of all his students by his absolute fair- 
ness and square dealing. Professor Ham is 
a native of Peabody, Mass., he fitted for col- 
lege at the Lexington (Mass.) liigh School, 
went to Harvard at the age of 17, and gradu- 
ated in 1896. The next two years he spent 
in graduate study at Harvard and the Uni- 
versity of Berlin ; he then spent two years as 
an instructor of French at the Cascadilla 
School, Ithaca, N. Y. At the end of that time, 
in 1901, at the age of 26, he came to Bowdoin 
as an instructor of Modern Languages, and 
in 1903 he was made Assistant Professor of 
Modern Languages. The whole student body, 
and especially every member of the Deutscher 
V'erein, is sorry to see him leave us, and was 
"•lad to see the recognition taken of Professor 
Ham's services by the college authorities in 
awarding to him at Commencement the well- 
deserved degree of Master of Arts.

The members of the graduating class 
arrived on the morning train from Portland 
and shortly before the hour set for the exer- 
cises, formed in line before the Medical Build- 
ing, and headed by Payne's Second Regiment 
Band, marched to the Congregational Church. 

They were followed in the line by the 
faculty of the Medical School, who took seats 
on the platform. Dr. Mitchell, dean of the 
school, presided, and the prayer was oflfered 
by Rev. C. H. Cutler of Bangor. 

The address was by Hon. Frederick A. 
Powers, LL.D., of Houlton, of the Class of 

Mr. Powers spoke first of what should be the 
attitude of the graduates in regard to their Hfe work. 
He said that the practice of medicine was a great 
and honorable profession. It had a great past and 
its field of usefulness was one that was increasing. 
He said great discoveries have been made and more 
will be made in the future and the way for one to 
achieve success in this or any other field is to aim 
high. He emphasized the fact that it is the indi- 
vidual that counts, and not the profession. Man 
makes the profession, not the profession the man. 
On this basis the success of a life work depended 
on the man himself. He said that the great test of 

a man is service to his fellow-men and the medical 
profession offers great opportunity in such work. 

The speaker then discussed the attitude of the man 
toward public life. There are a great many prob- 
lems that are demanding solution and it is the edu- 
cated man who should take a prominent part. Such 
men should be active rather than negatively critical, 
for activity is the only way the best results can be

The Bowdoin Commencement of 1907 was 
known as the Longfellow Centennial, marking 
as it does, the one-hundredth year since the 
birth of Henry W. Longfellow, the Poet. The 
name of Longfellow signifies the greatest 
graduate the college ever had. As to Dart- 
mouth there is none who stands equal with 
Webster, so to Bowdoin no son stands in just 
the rank with Longfellow. Bowdoin is justly 
proud of her many famous sons ; and of these 
many the name of Longfellow is always men- 
tioned first. On Wednesday afternoon the 
church was crowded to the doors to listen to 
the special exercises commemorative of that 
man who on a similar day twentv-seven years 
ago, spoke himself in the same edifice that 
famous parting address, Moritiiri Saliitainus. 
These exercises were the special features of 
the Commencement Week. At three o'clock 
the trustees, alumni, and faculty met at King's 
Chapel and formed in line. Fully two hundred 
were in the procession and marched to the 



Congregational Church. The members of the 
boards and faculty led tlie procession, clad in 
the academic cap and gowns. Hon. Augustus 
F. Moulton, 'jj, of Portland, was marshal. 
After all had been seated in the church the 
fourteen members of the Class of 1857 arrived 
at the church and while everyone in the audi- 
ence arose they slowly marched dt)wn the 
aisle to the front of the church where seats 
had been reserved. As they reached their 
seats the big audience burst into applause. 
The exercises were opened with a prayer, 
offered by Rev. John Carroll Perkins, of Port- 
land. The poem was delivered by Rev. Sam- 
uel Valentine CoJe, Class of 1874. Prof. 
Henry Leland Chapman, Class of 1866, deliv- 
ered the Oration. 


To speak of Longfellow in this place, and to this 
audience, is a privilege — a privilege none the less 
though speech do not rise to the height of the sub- 
ject and the occasion. The place is hallowed by the 
memory of his living presence and voice, when he 
was already crowned with the beauty of age, and 
with the honor of the world. The audience is com- 
posed, in part at least, of those whose feeling of rev- 
erence for the poet is made tender, and in some 
measure personal, by the strong and subtle tie that 
binds together the sons of a common Alma Mater. It 
is a fellow-alumnus whose character and work we 
commemorate, now that a hundred years have passed 
since his life began, and twenty-five years since it 

It is true, of course, that, like all poets, he belongs 
to everyone that has found pleasure, or comfort, 
or inspiration, in his verse ; and his fame is one of 
the cherished treasures of the land. Yet it seems 
to be our privilege, as it certainly is our pride, to 
feel that, in some sense, he belongs peculiarly to us. 

He was a student, a graduate, and a professor of 
Bowdoin, and, through all the years that followed 
his residence here, he cherished and expressed for 
the college a deep and filial regard. He was still an 
undergraduate when the "phantom of fame" rose 
upon his vision, and he wrote to his father, "I most 
eagerly aspire after eminence in literature. My 
whole soul burns most ardently for it, and every 
earthly thought centres in it." 

As he has, himself, recorded, it was in No. 27 
Winthrop Hall, the eastern windows of which looked 
out upon the grove of fragrant and murmuring 
pines, that he wrote the poems which, appearing in 
the United States Literary Gazette, attracted not a 
little attention, and in many minds associated the 
initials "H. W. L." with the most hopeful verse 
produced at that time in New England. 

It was here that he returned, after three rap- 
turous and fruitful years in the Old World, to begin 
his work as a teacher amid the scenes which wit- 
nessed his diligence as a student. On the fiftieth 
anniversary of his graduation, he did, in this place, 
what he could scarcely be persuaded to do else- 

where, — he read a poem to a public audience; in 
which, in his inimitably modest way, he laid a trib- 
ute, wrought equally of art and of affection, at the 
proud feet of his Alma Mater. That was a mern- 
orable scene, as some who are present to-day will 
recall. The floor and galleries, the pews, the aisles, 
and even the window-ledges of this historic church, 
were crowded with people who held their breaths to 
catch the spoken music of his salutation : 

"O ye familiar scenes, — ye groves of pine. 
That once were mine, and are no longer mine, — 
Thou river, widening thro' 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." 

Do you suppose the college will ever forget that 
salutation, or cease to claim the poet as her own? 
Not her own in any jealous or exclusive sense, but 
in the proud and grateful sense in which a mother 
claims as her own the son whose achievements in 
the world of men reflect glory upon the household 
from which he went, and to which his feet some- 
times, and his affections always, return. 

It was a characteristic and beautiful trait of Long- 
fellow that he cherished an abiding interest in the 
ancestral line which led him back to the cabin of the 
Mayflower, in the city of his birth and happy boyhood, 
and in the college where he passed the years of his 
youth and early manhood ; and he has written of 
them all in words that never lose their grace and 
beauty, more than does the familiar lapping of the 
wave upon the beach, or the ever-recurring flush of 
the sunset cloud. 

Many who have never visited his boyhood home, 
or seen the "shadowy lines of its trees," the "fort 
upon the hill," and the "breezy dome" of Deering's 
woods, yet hear in the exquisite melody of My Lost 
Youth — that song of early memories — the elemental 
chant of the human heart, singing to itself in quiet 
monotone of the scenes and associations which are 
not so much remembered, as wrought into the con- 
tinuous fabric of a life of which the conventional 
distinctions of Yesterday, To-Day and To-Mqrrow, 
are phases and not fragments. Striking as is the 
poem in form, and simple in substance, no parodist 
has laid frivolous or profane hands upon it. Nature 
and art are so wedded in it that the twain have 
indeed become one ; and it will go on singing to 
generation after generation a song that will touch 
the hearts of men and women everywhere. 

The explanation of Longfellow's universal and 
unique appeal is to be found, partly, in the essential 
nature of his art. The truest art is that which 
reflects, in its motives and methods, the simplicity 
of nature, and lays upon the human spirit a spell not 
unlike that which is wrought, in a thousand famil- 
iar ways, by nature herself. The sunshine is a 
"glorious birth" not only to Wordsworth, but, con- 
sciously or unconsciously, to men the world over. 
The dull monotone of the sea, and the rippling song 
of the brook, are soothing sounds to the ear, but 
he who hears them finds that, in some mysterious 
way, they are forthwith changed to dreams and 
fancies in the soul. The plaintive or cheerful note 
of a lone bird in the still depths of the forest stirs in 



the listener a half-conscious sympathy for what 
seems like a remote and unshared ecstacy of joy or 
sorrow. The little flower that peeps timidly forth 
amid the withered and tangled debris of a waste 
place, brings a sudden light into the eye that sees 
it, and starts thoughts that are, perhaps, "too deep 
for tears." 

It is by such means as these, simple, familiar, 
unobtrusive, that nature often appeals to what is 
deepest within us, and lays a wondrous spell upon 
the imagination and the heart. And the art which 
appeals most widely and strongly to men shares, or 
at least, reflects this simplicity of nature. Such is 
pre-eminently the character of Longfellow's art. It 
is simple, lucid, and human, both in its expression, 
and in the themes with which it deals. It has other 
notable characteristics also, like sincerity, flexibility, 
delicacy, and tact ; but in its simplicity probably lies 
the special reason why its appeal is, in some measure, 
universal, like the appeal of Nature. 

The complaint is sometimes made, not alone of 
Longfellow, but of other poets as well, that the sen- 
timent of which their poetry is the expression is 
familiar and common, and that being so native to the 
human heart, and so homespun in its quality, the 
verse in which it is enshrined is so far, of an infe- 
rior order. The criticism is, of course, shallow, and 
not less shallow because it often assumes a lofty 
tone. What is pronounced a defect in the poetry is, 
in fact, that which insures its permanent hold upon 
men. The sentiment which is new, or strange, or 
paradoxical, sentiment peculiarly proper to prose, — 
may, in poetry also, stir a feeling of curiosity and 
interest ; but the feeling is likely to be transient. It 
is like the guest of an hour, whose coming, indeed, 
is welcome, but whose visit is of brief significance, 
and is soon forgotten. But the sentiment which is 
familiar, because it is the spontaneous flowering of 
our nature, is perennial and abiding ; and is like the 
friend whose accustomed place is by the intimate 
hearth-fire, and whose absence makes a void that 
cannot be filled. 

Poetry which is the product of ingenious con- 
ceits, and subtle speculations, and morbid fancies, 
may have a temporary vogue, and may make a 
special appeal to individuals ; but the poetry which 
clings to the memory, and comforts, and refreshes, 
and purifies the heart, is that which deals sincerely 
and nobly with the commonplace feelings of love, 
and duty, and sorrow, and the home affections, and 
the sweetness of childhood, and the serenity of age, 
and the reverent fearlessness of death. The one 
kind of poetry is the curious, and often beautiful, 
fabric wrought by the human intellect ; the other 
is the human reflection, more or less imperfect, of 
the divine wisdom which has made us what we are. 
The appreciation of Longfellow, like the appreciation 
of all true poetry, demands of us an attitude of sym- 
pathy and reverence for the things which, because 
they are not of human origin, are ever-repeated, and 
fundamental, and commonplace. 

The "divine" Sir Philip Sidney, as his contempo- 
raries, not without reason, delighted to call him, 
remarks in his Apologie for Poetrie, that of all 
sciences the Poet is monarch. "He cometh to you 
with words set in delightful proportion ; and with a 
tale forsooth he cometh to you ; with a 
tale which holdeth children from play, and old men 
from the chimney corner; and pretending nothing 

more, doth intend the winning of the mind from 
wickedness to virtue." 

Of that ideal of a poet, which is as old as the art 
itself, Longfellow is an admirable exemplification. 
He comes to us with a tale which, by its vivid and 
picturesque charm holds children from play, and 
old men from the chimney corner. The narrative 
may be an avowed tale like those which were told 
with Chaucerian grace in the Wayside Inn, or it may 
be in the form of an idyl, a ballad, or an epic ; but 
it is always well-ordered, graceful in style, lucid in 
language, and happy in the adaptation of the metre 
to the theme. He employed many varieties of 
English verse, and an unerring instinct led him to 
choose the form fitted to his subject. For the tale 
of Evangeline, an idyl of wondrous beauty and ten- 
derness and pathos, and for the Courtship of Myles 
Stanish, that picture of stern Puritanic life, relieved 
by a delicate and engaging strain of humor, he 
made the bold and deliberate choice of the hexame- 
ter form of verse. Forthwith the critics began to 
demonstrate that the metre was of necessity harsh, 
halting, and unsuited to English verse ; that the 
attempt to adapt a classical metre, however musical 
in its origin, to the peculiarities of English speech, 
had always been a failure, and must continue to be 
a failure. But while they were busily engaged in 
proving that the verse could not be pleasant to the 
ear, or inviting to the reader, the gentle idyl, with 
its sweetness, and sincerity, and grace, was winning 
its way to all hearts, and charming all ears ; so that 
the reader or hearer of it was tempted, at its con- 
clusion, to apply to the poem itself the description 
of its heroine : 

"Homeward serenely she walked, with God's ben- 
ediction upon her; 
When she had passed it seemed like the ceasing of 
exquisite music." 

Another experiment in metrical form was made 
by Longfellow in the poem of Hiawatha. This may 
fairly be called a kind of epic, for, while strikingly 
unique in form, it is scarcely more unlike the classi- 
cal type of epic than is the Faery Queen of Spenser, 
or Tennyson's Idyls of the King. It relates the 
primeval traditions, and describes the daily life, of 
a shy, mysterious people, of whom the little that we 
know invests them with a strange, romantic interest. 
Under the poet's spell, we sit by them at the door 
of the lodge, and go with them to hunt in the for- 
est ; with them we shoot the rapids in a birch canoe 
that floats on the river. 

"Like a yellow leaf in Autumn, 
Like a yellow water lily." 

We are charmed observers of their wooing, and 
guests at their wedding feast. We seem to partake in 
their blithe fellowship with bird and beast, and to 
share in their stoical suffering and grief. We listen 
to their simple and stately talk, and become familiar 
with their superstitions, and feel the charm of their 
childlike faith. It is a strange world of primitive 
manners and speech where the human life is in 
closest contact with the life of nature. The poem 
has no prototype, and will have no successor. The 
metre in which it is written is a most skilful adapt- 
ation of form to subject and purpose. It was bor- 
rowed from an ancient Finnish poem, and Long- 
fellow's unfailing artistic sense perceived its fitness 



for his purpose. He was to tell of the doings of a 
rude folk, living in the forests, sharing some of the 
traits, as they shared the companionship, of the wild 
animal life about them, having a limited stock of 
words and ideals, and with the superstitions natural 
to their savage state. What could be better suited 
to this purpose than the short, rapid, trochaic lines, 
full of parallelisms and repetitions, the model of 
which he found in the old Finnish poem, and adopted, 
with an added grace of his own? The people took 
the poem home to their hearts, and they identilied 
the poet with the sweet Indian singer, Chibiabos ; 
and when Longfellow was borne to his burial, his 
own words were his fitting requiem : 

"He is dead, the sweet musician ! 
Hs is gone from us forever ! 
He has moved a little nearer 
To the Master of all music, 
To the Master of all singing!" 

A strange, pathetic thing in the closing years of 
Emerson's life was the failure of his memory to 
recall the words that he wanted. He had been, 
through his life, a master of words. They seemed 
to wait upon him, rich, pregnant, vivid words, — ready 
to his call, like alert and obsequious servants, eager 
and able, like Prospero's Ariel: 

"To tread the ooze of the salt deep. 
To run upon the sharp wind of the North, 
To do him business in the veins o' the earth 
When it is baked with frost." 

No homely lesson, no poetic imagining, no 
etherial vision, but it came from him in words that 
carried their humble or their mystic message deftly 
and clearly into the minds of men. But the power 
failed him. His richly-liveried retinue of slaves no 
longer responded to his need. He groped pitifully 
in vain, for words and names which had always 
seemed to anticipate his summons. 

In those days of pathetic failure, . a short time 
before his own death, he was present at the funeral 
service of his friend Longfellow. During the 
service he rose, and, going to the side of the coffin, 
looked intently upon the face of the dead poet. A 
few moments later he rose again, and looked once 
more upon the familiar features. Then he said to 
a friend near him, "That gentleman was a sweet, 
beautiful soul, but I have entirely forgotten his 

It was an interesting and instructive incident. 
The name of his cherished friend might be lost in 
the mist that had gathered about his memory, but 
nothing could blot from his consciousness the sig- 
nificant fact that the still face, into which he looked, 
was the face of a serene and blameless spirit. 

It is not permitted us to look upon the living or 
the dead features of the poet, except as they are 
chiseled or drawn for us in bust or portrait ; but we 
may look again and again, as often as we will, into 
the poems which bear the impress of his spirit; and 
if words fail us to describe the secret of their charm 
we shall still feel with Emerson that he who wrote 
them was a "sweet, beautiful soul." 


By Samuel Valentine Cole, '74 

We were a busy people ; axes rang. 

And anvils ; when amid the days' turmoil 

A melody crept ; a master came and sang. 

And charmed the workers, sweetening all the toil 

As Orpheus did, who once, with flute to lip, 

Helped mightily at the launching of the ship. 

And in and out among us many a day 

He went, this singer, with his happy strain; 

Greeted the little children at their play ; 
Was present at the hanging of the crane ; 

Blessed maidenhood and manhood ; blessed the 
birds : — 

His life beat like the sunshine through his words. 

At last he said upon occasion high, 

The light of seventy summers in his face, 
"O, Caesar, we who are about to die 

Salute you," and he said it from this place. 
With aged comrades round him who should all 
So soon restore life's armor to the wall. 

Those men have passed into the Silent Land, 
Their earthly battles ended ; many a change 

Has crept on us beneath time's moulding hand. 
And on these scenes with faces new and strange ; 

But not on him; the magic of his art 

Still penetrates the citadel of the heart ! 

And where he once has entered to delight 
And cheer and strengthen, linger he must and 
will ; 

Oft mingling with the voices of the night 
Some fragment of his song to haunt us still. 

Or to lure to far-off realms, and unawares 

Scatter in flight an Arab host of cares. 

A hundred years — ^how old he would have been ! 

And yet how young; for, as we turn his page. 
We mark the throbbings of a life within 

Old as the world and new to every age. 
Beauty and love and sorrow — from such themes 
Uprose the golden fabric of his dreams. 

"God sent his singers upon earth," he said ; 

What were the earth without them? what wei'e 
We call so glorious but games and bread. 

Sordid existence or ignoble strife. 
Were there no voices crying to the soul, 
Nor any vision of life's path and goal? 

The truth we need and wait for may at times 
Break suddenly on us like a cannon's roar, 

But oftener comes in faintest elfin chimes 

Blown o'er the border line from some dim shore. 

Or yet, as blind and helpless as we are. 

It comes in perfect stillness like a star. 

Ay, even invisible as the air that rolls. 

Stand great unproven truths which, as we must, 



We build our lives upon, and stake our souls, 
Outweighing knowledge with our hope and 
trust, — 
Truths which keen Science, labor as she may, 
Can never explain — and never explain away! 

Science may guide o'er many a hill and plain, 
Revealing how the pathways meet and part ; 

But for life's pathless and uncharted main, 
Whereon our surest pilot is the heart, 

We need their vision unto whom belong 

The mystery and the mastery of song ! 

"Listen ! behold ! believe ! are tones that fill 
The poets' signs and symbols manifold, — 
Those fables of the ever-singing hill, 

Isles of the Blest, cities with streets of gold. 
Enchanted castles, youth restoring streams, 
And all the El Doradoes of our dreams ! 

For song, indeed, is truth full-winged with power ; 

A faithful voice that calls us from afar ; 
An impulse from some land where every hour 

God's truth reigns sovereign; some hope-bringing 
Some sword that stirs the spirit, as were stirred 
The Prophets and Apostles of the Word! 

The poets go before us; they discern 
Across these spaces of life's gloom and glow. 

The great ideals that ever live and burn; 

They break all pathways without fear, and, lo. 

They travel onward, keeping still in sight 

Some pillar of cloud by day, of fire by night. 

The blessed poets save us — not the kings. 
And not the warriors ; no great human wrongs 

Have they e'er stood for ; no great rightful things 
But they have loved and cherished ; by their songs 

We march and prosper ; by their torches' rays 

The world moves forward into nobler ways. 

And in their hands for gracious use they bear 

The crowning gift of immortality ; 
The songless cities perish in thin air 

Empires dissolve ; old customs cease to be ; 
But aught that is, though flung by others lay, 
The poets touch it and it cannot die ! 

Still Homer's heroes live and talk and fight; 

The old men chirp of Helen ; beacons flare 
From Ilium on to Argos in the night; 

Penelope does not of her lord despair. 
But ravels still the day's work with her hands. 
And still Nausicaa by the pillar stands. 

How marvelous time's world-structure named of 
With masonry of dream-stuff, and with halls 
Of golden music ! yet secure and strong ; 

Whereon decay's dark shadow never falls ; 
A miracle of the masters from all lands 
And from all times — this house not made with 
hands ! 

Ah ! silently there sweeps before my eyes 

A vision of three poets dear to all 
Who feel the touch of beauty, and who prize 
The nobler voices that around us fall; 

Each from a different land, but all the three 
Facing the morning of a world to be. 

Lo, Roman Virgil ! at whose wizard name 

Things lost their power to change and pass away; 

Troy burns and does not vanish in the flame; 
A great queen greets the exiles ; still to-day 

Men hear, as by the Tiber's side they stroll. 

The funeral hymn of young Marcellus roll. 

Lo, also, England's Virgil! Arthur reigns 

Forever in the halls of Camelot ; 
Fair women sacrifice for noble gains 

Who never will grow old or be forgot; 
And those three Queens that helped are helping still 
The men who help to banish human ill. 

And, pray, why lingers Hiawatha so? 

Why must Priscilla and John Alden stand 
Telling the old, old tale, and never go? 

Wherefore this many a year throughout the land 
Keeps sad Evangeline her unwearied quest? 
The answer is — our Virgil of the West ! 

Three Laureates of three great peoples ! Each, 
In golden phrase and music-laden words, 

Moulded to sweetest use his country's speech ; 
Loved simple things, touched ever the common 

Winning the people's heart, and lived to hear 

The praises of the world sound in his ear. 

The realm of books each ever loved to roam. 
Finding new glories for the song he wove ; 

Sang childhood, the affections of the home, 
And the dear constancy of woman's love; 

Found tears in human things, and evermore 

Stretched yearning hands out toward the farther 

They sang that men should faint not, but endure. 
Follow the gleam, and wear the fadeless flower 

Of hope forever; that the goal is sure 
For those who strive and trust the Heavenly 

They lived pure lives and gentle, nor through all 

Uttered a word they ever need recall. 

So like in their unlikeness, that I dare 

(As else I dare not) name them side by side; 
Swayed by one mood and spirit; as they fare. 
The spaces close between them, else so wide ; 
While their immortal echoes strike across 
All tumults hitherward, nor suffer loss. 

Bowdoin, dear Mother, to thy listening ear 
His step falls on these pathways as of yore ; 

Again the "boy's will is the wind's will" here. 

And his the "long, long thoughts" of youth once 

For thine he was when first the vision came 

To him of the alluring face of fame. 

He caught the pathos from thy murmuring pines. 
The melody from thy river, beauty and light 

From the fair sky above thee where the signs. 
Thick with white worlds, roll solemnly by night; 

Thy son, and master in the art divine. 

All this he wrought into his lustrous line. 



But chiefly — for he knew what springs had fed 
His youthful spirit in its purpose higli — 

Did he remember — on the day he said 
That he was old and was about to die — 

With gracious words of tenderness and truth, 

The faces of the teachers of his youth. 

Thrice happy are such teachers, with the dower 
Of knowledge and of counsel in their hand ! 

They sit forever at the springs of power, 
And, from these quiet places of the land. 

No trumpet blowing and no flag unfurled. 

They shape the forces that will shape the world. 

Ah ! as once more we walk these shades among, 
What visions from the bygone years arise ! 

The faces, O, the faces, how they throng. 
And pass, and come again, with friendly eyes, 

And fill, for each of us, with life more vast 

That other present which we call the past! . 

And he is of them ! Lo, the hearts that brim 
With hope and courage, and do not grow old. 

Have somewhere, somehow, learned to love like 
The nobler things that are not bought and sold. 

Remembering the light that through life's bars 

Breaks from beyond the sunset and the stars ! 

Commencement Day 

On Thursday, June 27, occurred the annual 
Commencement Exercises of the college in the 
Congregational Church. Early in the morn- 
ing the church began to fill up with friends

At the church the procession formed after 
the exercises were over and from there went 
to the Memorial Hall, where the Commence- 
ment Dinner was held. Five hundred alumni 
sat at the Commencement Dinner. On the 
way to the hall all the younger alumni kept 
up constant class cheers and as soon as they 
were seated in the hall, the cheering was re- 
doubled till the walls fairly shook. Professor 
Heni-y L. Chapman presided. The said that 
during the year the college had received gifts 
to the amount of $95,000, and spoke partic- 
ularly of the Goodenow Bec|uest of $25,000 
and the Longfellow Fellowship. Over $100,- 
000 had been pledged towards the sum neces- 
sary to obtain the Rockefeller grant. Profes- 
sor Chapman then called upon the speakers 
of the afternoon. 

Those who spoke were : Gen. Oliver O. 
Howard, '50 ; Congressman DeAlva S. Alex- 
ander, '70; Gen. Thomas H. Hubbard, '57; 
Hon. Stanley Plummer, '67; Gov. William T. 
Cobb, 'yj ; Charles H. Gilman, '82. Owing to 
the lateness of the hour before the dinner was 
commenced, fewer speeches were made this 
year than usual. Probably the most notewor- 
thy utterance made during the day was by 
Governor Cobb, who spoke for his Class of 
1877. In reference to State aid and competi- 
/tion in education he stirringly said : 

"I would rather see the old halls falling into 
ruin, barren and tenantless ; the beautiful 
buildings gone into decay; the walks of our 
campus grown into weeds and grass than that 
Bowdoin College should ever ask for or 
receive one dollar from the State of Maine. 
(Great applause.) 

"I beg you to believe I am not saying this 
from prejudice. No man believes more hon- 
estly in the cause of education or sets a higher 
value upon it. But I don't like and I never 
have liked the method of competitive educa- 
tion that exists to-day in this State. These 
sentiments are not radical. I believe they will 
find warm reception in the heart of every man 
present here to-day. I hope anyway that such 
wlil be the case. I am criticising the impulses 
of no one else. I am speaking my honest con- 
victions as a son of Bowdoin and a member 
of the Class of '77." 

All the speeches were intensely interesting. 
Before calling upon the representative from 
the Class of 1882, Prof. Chapman announced 
that this class had been awarded the alumni 



trophy for the largest percentage of living 
members in attendance. Fifty per cent, of its 
members were at Commencement. The near- 
est competitor was the Class of 1857, with 
over fifty per cent. 


The Boards of Overseers and Trustees 
transacted much important business during 
their meetings of Commencement Week. 
Among the most noteworthy steps taken was 
the action voting to employ an instructor in 
mechanical drawing, descriptive geometry and 
surveying. This is directly along the lines 
which the Orient has advocated throughout 
the year and will meet with unanimous 
the year and will meet with ananimous ap- 
proval from the student body. It means that 
the college is broadening the scientific side of 
its curriculum in accordance with the modern 
demand for technical training. It means that 
a student may take a regular course at Bow- 
doin, and then obtain a degree from a high 
grade technical school in two years. The need 
of more opportunity for work along these 
lines has been strongly felt of late and this is 
distinctly a step in the right direction. 

Two new assistant professorships were 
established, one in Chemistry and one in Biol- 
ogy. This will give opportunity for broaden- 
ing these departments. 

Frederick W. Fisher, '81, of Lowell, Mass., 
and Hon. Levi Turner, '86, of Portland, are 
elected to the two vacancies on the Board of 
■ Overseers. , 

Chief Justice Lucius Alonzo Emery was 
elected a member of the Board of Trustees to 
succeed the late Chief Justice Wiswell. 

Prof. William A. Houghton, who for a 

, number of years had been head of the Latin 

Department, was retired and granted an hon- 

• orarium and was recommended for the Carne- 

\ gie foundation. Kenneth C. M. Sills was 

elected Winkly Professor of the Latin Lan- 

, guage and Literature. 

Prof. Frederick W. Brown of Clark Uni- 
versity, Mass., was elected Professor of Mod- 
ern-Languages for three years to succeed Ros- 
coe J. Ham, who has resigned to accept a call 
to Trinity. 

Wallace W. Dyson, M.D., has been elected 
Instructor and Assistant Demonstrator in 
Anatomy in the Medical Department. Two 
other assistant demonstrators have also been 

elected, Charles L. Cragin, M.D., and Phillip 
C. Thompson, M.D. 

President William DeWitt Hyde was 
p-ranted leave of absence with full salary. 


Owing to the most sad calamity that befell 
this summer, the Orient^ at the time of its 
publication, scarcely wished to make an 
attempt to obtain the reports of the Tennis 
and Track Managers of the year. These will 
be obtained in the fall, and all the reports will 
be published together at that time. 


At the Longfellow centenary exercises it '( 
was announced that the daughters of the poet, 
Miss Longfellow, Mrs. Dana and Mrs. Thorp 
had given ten thousand dollars to Bowdoin to 
endow a fellowship in literature in memory 
of their father. The fellowship is for the ben- 
efit of graduate students, who having shown 
proficiency and promise in the direction of 
Belles Lettres, wish to pursue the study of 
English, or general literature, after gradua- 
tion in some university at home or abroad. 
Bowdoin is most heartily grateful to these 
donors for this gift. 


Bowdoin, 5 ; Harvard, 4. 

To make the Orient record of the baseball season 
complete, we publish the account of the baseball 
game at Cambridge on June 12. Bowdoin, for the 
first time in the history of any Maine college, 
attained an athletic victory over Harvard. The game 
was well played and hard-fought throughout and was 
a fitting climax to the record of tlie "finest baseball 
team ever turned out in a Maine college." 

Slater pitched for Harvard and Sparks for Bow- 
doin. Both pitched steady games, but both men were 
hit practically at will, although mainly for infield hits 
that were prompt outs. 

For three innings and a half the game dragged 
until McCall reached first on a scratch hit to Sparks, 
and promptly stole second. Briggs then singled past 
Stanwood, and McCall tallied on Currier's whizzer 
into center, leaving Briggs on third. The half ended 
with a pretty double play, Simons going out, C. 
Bower to Stanwood, the latter throwing home to 
Lawrence in time to catch Briggs at the plate. 

Bowdoin got three runs. With one down, Sparks 
reached first on Simons' error and G. Bower took 
two bases on Capt. Dexter's muff of an easy fly. 
Sparks getting third on the same play. Then Cur- 
rier threw up to Pritchett at third to catch Sparks 
napping, and Sparks started for home, getting caught 




Following is the necrology report of Bowdoin 
College from June i, 1906, to June i, 1907 :

him out easily once on the tossing back and forth 

that resulted, but Sparks came in on a wild toss

Here is the cheapest good gun yet made. By the omission of iKe take down feature we have 
been able to greatly reduce the cost of production and at the same time have kept the gun up to the 
famous high ^^zr/in standard of strength, safety and durability. Notice the clean simplicity of 
this gun. The workmanship and finish are perfect. The weight is only 7 pounds. The full choke 
barrels are especially bored for smokeless, as well as black powder and so chambered that 2% inch or 
2/8 inch shells may be used. Several improvements in the operating parts make it the easiest, most 
reliable and best working gun in existence. We are glad to make it possible for every lover of guns 
and bud shooting to get this high grade repeating shot gun at so low a price.

BowDOiN II, Fort McKinley o. 

Saturday, September 30th, Bowdoin opened her 
football season on Whittier Field, with Fort 
McKinley as the opposing team. Sheehan made 
the first touchdown after the ball had been brought 
to McKinley's one-3'ard line by a series of end runs 
by Files and Gould. Gould failed to kick the goal. 

The second half resulted in another touchdown 
for Bowdoin, Files making the touchdown, after 
the forward passing of Gould and Crowley had 
brought the ball close to the soldiers' goal line. 
Gould kicked the goal. This half was not finished 
the soldiers having to leave on the 4.25 train for 
Portland. Considering the length of the game and 
the lightness of her team, Bowdoin did very well in 
the opening game.

Harvard 5, Bowdoin 0, 

In the Stadium at Cambridge, Wednesday, Oct. 
3d, Bowdoin, with a much lighter team, held Har- 
vard down to S points. Several times Harvard was 
within striking distance of Bowdoin's goal, but the 
consistent playing of Capt. Crowley's men pre- 
vented scoring. Bowdoin tried the forward pass 
several times — but the Harvard ends each time 
smashed thru the line and broke it up. There was 
much penalizing on both sides for unnecessary

Last Saturday with a team somewhat crippled 
from the Harvard game Bowdoin met Exeter on 
Whittier Field. In the first half Exeter scored once 
by line bucking — not being able to gain a yard 
around Bowdoin's ends. In the second half Exe- 
ter scored three touchdowns — Lewis kicking two 
goals. Bowdoin unsuccessfully tried the forward 
pass. In the first half Lewis tried for a goal from 
the field, and in the second half Gould attempted a 
field goal with a drop kick. Both failed on account 
of the strong wind. The summary :

This year the Bowdoin Christian Association 
starts on a good business basis, with an excellent 
program of speakers for the regular Thursday 
evening meetings, and should have the good-will 
and hearty support of every member of the under- 
graduate body. Last year 152 members were 
enrolled, and paid the small annual fee of one dol- 
lar, these receipts together with a few gifts from 
interested friends, have enabled the Association to 
clear all its old debts, and to hold the customary 
reception to the Freshman Class, which last year 
it was necessary to omit. Although the Associa- 
tion suffered greatly this summer by the loss of 
Morrison and Lee who were its President and Vice- 
President, the rest of the cabinet have taken up the 
work, and have started the Association in the best 
running order it has known at Bowdoin. A letter 
of welcome was sent to all the incoming class, an 
information bureau was maintained during the 
week before and after the opening of the term, a 
reception was held on October third, and last night, 
the first regular meeting of the year was led by 
Professor Chapman in the Association rooms. 

In arranging the list of speakers, the officers 
have been unusually fortunate in obtaining their 
men, and the special feature will be a series of 
seven monthly talks on 'The Problems of the Col- 
lege Man." These subjects and the men chosen for 



their discussion may well be mentioned. I. "A 
Constructive Life," President George C. Chase of 
Bates College; II. "A College Man's Religion," 
Professor F. C. Robinson, '7S'< HI- "Choosing a 
Profession," Edward Stanvvood, Editor of the 
Youtli's Companion; IV. "Politics," Hon. Her- 
bert M. Heath of Augusta ; V. "Honor in Col- 
lege," Dean Alfred E. Burton, C.E., '78, of the 
Massachusetts Institute of Technology ; VI. "The 
Effect of a Young Man's Morals Upon His Future 
Success," Dr. E. G. Abbott, Medic. '98, of Portland, 
and for the seventh talk it is hoped that President 
Hyde will be able to speak on "Fraternities." All 
the meetings will be held this year in the Associa- 
tion rooms in the north wing of the chapel, and will 
be open to any undergraduate or member of the 
faculty, whether a member of the Association or not. 
The Orient sees in the purpose and plan of the 
Association a breadth of view and an energy that 
cannot but result in good for Bowdoin and her 
undergraduate body. Membership and holding of 
office in the Association, to quote from the letter 
of welcome sent to the Freshmen "are open to every 
Bowdoin undergraduate whether a church member 
of not, and entirely regardless of the sect to which 
he may belong." And to quote from the Associa- 
tion hand-book, it is the purpose of those starting 
the work, "to make the Association stand rather 
as a stepping stone to the church, to make it an 
organization open to every undergraduate, and one 
in which the guiding principle is simply and honestly 
the square deal." 


On Thursday evening Oct. 3, the Y. M. C. A. gave 
its annual recention to the entering class. The 
arrangements were in charge of a committee com- 
posed of Cole, '09, Ginn, '09, Burton, '09, and W. 
P. Hinckley, '09. The reception room was tastefully 
decorated with palms and autumn branches. A 
unique feature of the function, and one which rid it 
to a large degree of all formalities was the scheme 
of tagging each person with a slip upon which the 
name was written. 

The new men were received by Mrs. G. T. Lit- 
tle, Miss Helen Chapman, Mrs. F. E. Woodruff 
and Mrs. Allen Johnson. The refreshments, in 
charge of Mrs. Henry Johnson and Mrs. W. T. 
Foster, consisted of punch, ice-cream, cake, and 
fancy crackers. Much credit is due to the com- 
mittee in charge for the efficient and hospitable way 
in which the affair was managed. 


The Sophomores lost the first of the series of 
of baseball games which are held annually on the 
Delta between the two lower classes. The game, 
with_ the exception of the first inning, was exceed- 
ing interesting and remarkably well played in spite 
of the fact that both teams lacked the much neces- 

sary preliminary practice. Clifford and Lawless did 
some noteworthy work for the Freshmen, while 
Ross, Marsh and Walker were most effective for 
the Sophomores. The score by innings was as fol- 
lows : 

30100001 — 5 
30II0I0I o — 7 

191 1. 


The Class of 1909 held its Junior elections on 
Monday night. The following are the officers 
chosen for the year : 

President — John S. Simmons. 

Vice-President — Leon H. Timberlake. 

Secretary-Treasurer — Guy P. Estes. 

Marshal — Howard F. Kane. 

Orator — William M. Harris. 

Poet — Paul J. Newman. 

Odist — Jasper J. Stahl. 

Chaplain — Mr. Stevens. 

Ivy Day Committee — Harry F. Hinckley, Chair- 
man; Clarence L. Scamman, Harold N. Marsh, 
Percy G. Bishop, Arthur W. Hughes. 

Assembly Committee — Gardner K. Heath, Chair-, 
man ; Philip H. Brown, Ralph O. Brewster, Irving 
L. Rich, John A. Stetson. 


There is to be more than usual done in the way 
of track athletics this fall. There is, of course, the 
regular meet between the Sophomores and Fresh- 
men. Besides that, there will probably be a dual 
meet between the Bates and Bowdoin Freshmen 
and a cross country run between Bates and Bow- 
doin. The last will be held at Lewiston, but the 
others will take place here. It ought not to be 
necessary to remind the students of these events 
as notice of them has been posted for some time. 
There has not been very much interest shown in 
track work this fall, partly because of the unfavor- 
able weather, although there have been about fifteen 
men out doing cross-country running regularly 
every afternoon. Here are two chances offered the 
Freshmen for winning their numerals and we want 
to see more out, either down at the field or at the 
gymnasium. Sophomores and upper classmen come 
out, too. It is the best of exercise in the open air 
and is the first thing towards turning out a winning 
team next spring. The dates for the meets will be 
announced later. The Athletic Council has recom- 
mended that track "B's" be granted to the cross 
country team, if it wins. Six men anyway will com- 
pose the team and this should bring out a good 
field. With but one "B" man in distance events left 
in college, a chance for five others to win their 
letters should not be neglected.

For the one hundred and 
New College Year sixth time Bowdoin Col- 
lege has opened her doors 
for the beginning of a new year, and the 
prospects certainly are auspicious that this 
year will make continued progress forward 
for the institution. The entering class shows 
a marked increase in numbers over any class 
ever before admitted. One hundred regular 
Freshmen are enrolled and three Freshmen 
specials, making a total of one hundred and 
three as against eighty Freshmen and eleven 
specials admitted last year. Besides this there 
have been thirteen additions to the upper 
classes, thus making one hundred and sixteen 
new men in college. New courses are offered 
this year along mathematical lines, embracing 
mechanical drawing, descriptive ,geometry 
and surveying, an increase which means that 
Bowdoin is to have broader facilities for 
scientific work, a recognition of what has 
been the demand for a number of years past 

and which the Orient has consistently advo- 
cated. A number of new additions are made 
to the faculty. President Hyde is still abroad, 
and the college wishes him a most speedy 
return to health. The opening of college is 
most sadly marked by the absence of three 
who were present when the term closed last 
June. The excitement of the commencement 
of a new year does not serve to lessen the 
pain, but rather makes it seem sharper that 
we do not see those familiar faces with the 
others. The Class of 1907 has now gone 
forever as a part of the undergraduate life. 
To the new Class of 191 1, which will wear 
those same colors of red and white, we can 
but say try to do as well by Bowdoin as those 
whose place you are taking have done. 
Seek to catch and feel the true Bowdoin 
spirit. You are Bowdoin men in name now. 
Work hard for the college, each along the 
lines for which he is best adapted, look ever 
for the best around you, and you will realize 
later that there is something more than a 
name in being Bowdoin men ; there is a true 
Bowdoin spirit, a spirit which may not lie on 
the surface but which is deeper and finer and 
only reveals itself when sought. 


The Bowdoin Club of Boston held its first 
meeting of the season at the University Club 
October 5. There was no special program 
and the evening passed in social conversation 
and informal discussion of matters of college 
interest. The death of Walter W. Fogg, '96, 
was reported to the club, and a number of 
the younger graduates present who knew Mr. 
Fogg well, spoke in his memory, recalling his 
peculiarly sweet and lovable nature, his self- 
forgetful and untiring devotion to the duty 
which he saw before him, and his brave and 
cheerful struggle against weakness and dis- 
ease. Mr. Fogg died young, his life-work, 
as he must have felt, just begun. But few 
men leave to their friends and associates so 
sweet a memory, and so inspiring an example. 


Owing to the great mass of matter that has 
accumulated during the summer and requires 
publication, much of necessity has to be 
omitted from this issue which otherwise 
should appear. 



College Botes 

Leon H. Timberlake, '09, while at football prac- 
tice Tuesday afternoon, sprained his ankle severely. 

Max P. Gushing, '09, R. S. Crowell, '10, and A. 
W. Stone, '10, attended the Maine Musical Festival 
at Bangor. 

Tackle Crosby, '10, wrenched his knee badly dur- 
ing the Exeter game and was confined to his room 
for several days. 

Professor Little has been chosen one of the 
speakers for the Maine Library Association, which 
will meet at Portland October 17 and 18. 

On Thursday, October 17, Frank B. Sanborn of 
Concord, Mass., will give some personal reminis- 
C'''nces of Hawthorne, Emerson and Abbot. 

The headgears which the Freshmen are wearing, 
so thoughtfully prescribed by the members of 1910, 
make quite a gay appearance around college. 

Fullback Thomas P. Shehan, '09, is suffering from 
an injury to his elbow received during the Exeter 
game. The wound is a severe one and will keep 
him from playing for some time. 

Kenneth R. Tefft, 1909, has been elected to the 
editorial board of the Orient. He takes the position 
made vacant by the death of R. A. Lee. The con- 
test for new positions on the board, open to mem- 
bers of the Sophomore and Freshman Class, will 
begin soon. 

Professor Allen Johnson has completed a volume 
upon which he has been at work some three years, 
entitled, "Stephen A. Douglas." The work^ is mainly 
a political treatise upon the times of this famous 
opponent of Lincoln. Professor Johnson has col- 
lected much of the material for this book from 
original sources and the work will doubtless prove 
a valuable addition to the historical literature of our 

The Debating Council on Tuesday evening organ- 
ized and elected the following officers for the year : 
Arthur L. Robinson, President; Joseph M. Boyce, 
/ Secretary-Treasurer ; WiUiam M. Harris, Manager 
Debating Team ; Jasper J. Stahl, Assistant Manager 
Debating Team. A letter was read from Wesleyan 
University in regard to holding a debate with that 
institution. The Council is at present under a two 
years' agreement to debate Syracuse University this 

The Inter-Fraternity Council for the year organ- 
ized the first of the week. The council this year is 
as follows : M. P. Merrill, Zeta Psi, Chairman ; C. 
M. Robinson, Delta I<Cappa EpsHon, Secretary ; A. 
L. Robinson, Alpha Delta Phi; A. H. Ham, Psi 
Upsilon; J. A. Davis, Theta Delta Chi; H. H. Hayes, 
Deka Upsilon; C. A. Abbott, Kappa Sigma; W. M. 
Fairclough, Beta Theta Chi, The council at its 
meeting unanimously recommended to the fraterni- 
ties that all parades and exhibitions, particularly 
down street and at the railroad station, be dis- 
pensed with as a feature of initiation. It was felt 
that such exhibitions had done more harm than good 
to the college, and this year all such affairs should 
be confined to the individual chapter houses. This 
is a step of which the Orient heartily approves. 

Eighteen of the entering class are from without 
the State — a marked increase. 

A considerable number of students attended the 
Musical Festival in Portland the first of the week. 

Berton C. Morrill, '10, who coached the track 
team as a student last spring, has returned to col- 

The entering class contains grandsons of Elijah 
Kellogg, Chief Justice Fuller, and Senator William 
P. Frye. 

William R. Crowley, '08, is proctor in South 
Winthrop, and R. C. Clark, '08, is the North Win- 
throp proctor. 

The telephone in Mikelsky's room, 19 North 
Maine, has been reinstated, and a toll ofBce will be 
opened there in the near future. 

Men are at work replacing bricks in the walls of 
the Science Building that have become worn 
through the action of the weather. 

The engagement is announced of Nadine Hull 
Edwards, of Portland, to William Stephen Brimi- 
john, '05, of Woodbury, New Jersey. 

Reports frohi the Treasurer's Office and the 
Library Desk state that there have been more calls 
than ever this year for tickets for "Triangle." 

The football team left for Amherst on the early 
train, Friday morning. A considerable number of 
fellows were at the station to give the team a 
"send off." 

Mr, and Mrs, Hubbard of Brunswick, have 
announced the engagement of their daughter. Miss 
Daisie Hubbard, to Mr. E. Worthley Fuller, M.D., 
Bowdoin, '01, of Bath. 

The south spire of the chapel was struck by light- 
ning the first of the summer. Considerable labor 
was required in the repairing of it, as the damage 
was more or less serious. 

There are but two vacant college rooms in the 
dormitories this year. This is the first time that 
the rooms in the "Ends" have been so filled up 
since the fraternity houses have been built. 

"If Bowdoin could be induced to take any inter- 
est (in basketball) after the other colleges have 
started the movement, a Maine league could be 
easily formed this year," — Colby Echo. We will 
explain that there is not the slightest possibility 
that Bowdoin could be induced to follow the other 
colleges' lead in this sport, with our present facil- 

Professor Franklin C. Robinson was absent for 
the first week of the term, attending the annual 
meetings of the American Public Health Associa- 
tion, at Atlantic City. Professor Robinson repre- 
sented the State of Maine at the meetings. The 
Association includes the leading government and 
state health workers of the United States, Canada, 
Cuba and Mexico. Last year Professor Robinson 
was President of the whole Association and 
attended the meetings in Mexico. This year he was 
chairman of one of the leading committees and took 
charge of some of the leading discussions on mat- 
ters of disinfection. Mrs. Robinson accompanied 
him on the trip. On the trip he visited his son, 
Dwight S. Robinson, '07, captain of last spring's 
track team, who is with the DuPont Powder Works 
Company at Woodbury, N. J. 




Hall of Alpha Delta Phi, 
October I, 1907. 
In the death of Brother John Marshall Brown 
the Bowdoin Chapter of the Alpha Delta Phi sus- 
tains a most sad and distinct loss. He was a 
brother who through his whole life ever maintained 
a hearty interest in college and fraternity. His per- 
sonal life and work was a distinguished one, and 
one that throws nought but credit upon his fra- 
ternity. In the hurry and labor of his younger 
years and amid the cares of middle life and the 
advance of age during his later years, he still 
remembered the Alpha Delta Phi. The fraternity 
is but too conscious of the loss sustained in his 
death and desires this brief tribute to show in part 
at least the regard in which he was always held.

Two classmates have been taken from us. As we 
meet after the summer there are two to whom we 
said good-bye in June who are not here to greet us 
in September. Richard Almy Lee and John Frank- 
lin Morrison, formerly members of the Class of 
1908 at Bowdoin College, are no longer with us. 
Both were hearty, wholesome college fellows, men 
who had endeared themselves to us by the close ties 
of three years of intimate connection. Both were 
fellows whose moral life and personal characteris- 
tics were above reproach, leaders in the class, men 
who were willing always to work for the college 
and for 1908. They were not shirkers or loafers. 
In whatever was done in college that aimed for the 
right they could be depended upon to render assist- 
ance. In the front rank in pleasure and labor, yet 
it is not for what they did that we cherish their 
memory but for what they were. To those who 
knew them as we classmates knew them there 
remains the consolation that the whole course of 
their lives was pure and noble in every way. Their 
classmates bowing to the divine will, leave this hum- 
ble, but sincere tribute to their memory.

Hall of Alpha Delta Phi, 
October i, 1907. 
In the removal of Brother John Franklin Morri- 
son from the midst of our fraternity group the 
Alpha Delta Phi have sustained a loss from which 
it is impossible ever to fully recover. To have a 
brother taken from us in the very height of the 
college course, when just those ties of friendship 
and intimacy were most well knit and developed, to 

have one gone so suddenly who but a short time 
before was so intimately connected with us all, is to 
endure a blow the full force of which we can hardly 
realize even now but of which we grow more and 
more sadly conscious from day to day. John Frank- 
lin Morrison was always a hearty sharer in all our 
affairs. He was always among the foremost in our 
activities, and when work was to be done ever 
among the first to volunteer. His personal moral 
character was above reproach. Not only was he 
universally esteemed by the college at large, but 
loved and respected by those with whom he inti- 
mately lived. His was not a superficial estimation 
but was known with that regard which is bred 
by true realization of sterling worth and lovable 
disposition. It is hard indeed to think of him as 
gone, as taken from us forever, that he will never 
again greet us in house and hall. The place he 
leaves can never be fdled. The hearts of all the 
active members of the Alpha Delta Phi at Bowdoin 
to-day will ever retain freshly and sadly in mind 
the memory of Brother Morrison as we knew him. 
But brief can this tribute seem from those who 
were his fraternal b;-others, but the tribute we give 
can never be written, it is something we all feel and 
all silently bear.

Resolutions adopted at the first regular meeting 
of the Bowdoin College Christian Association : 

Whereas, It has pleased God to call from our 
midst in the morning of their lives our president, 
John F. Morrison, and vice-president, Richard A. 
Lee ; and 

Whereas, The strong ties of friendship formed by 
them have forever on earth been torn asunder; 
be it 

Resolved, That the Bowdoin College Christian 
Association acknowledge, at this first regular meet- 
ing, the sad loss of its president, John F. Morrison, 
and vice-president, Richard A. Lee ; and be it 

Resolved, That the Association extend its sincere 
and heart-felt sympathy to the bereaved parents; 
and be it further 

Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be 
spread upon the records of the Bowdoin College 
Christian Association. 



Class of 1910 

During the summer vacation our class has 
suffered the great loss of one of its best 
beloved members, Harry J. Dugan. His 
death, by drowning, was under circumstances 
of exceptional sadness, and cast a gloom not 
only over the hearts of those who knew him 
well, but over the whole community where his 
life had been spent. Harry Dugan was a 
young man of noble equalities and the life cut 
short was one of great promise. His manly 
traits, his studious tastes, his upright charac- 
ter and his social nature endeared him to us 
who were closely associated with him as class- 
mates during the past year, and will long be 
cherished in our hearts. His death comes to 
us all with a sense of personal loss, but in our 
sorrow we are not unmindful of those who 
were bound to him by still closer ties. There- 
fore be it 

Resolved, That the Class of Bowdoin, Nine- 
teen Hundred and Ten, extend its deepest 
sympathy to the bereaved parents and sisters, 
and assure them that the hearts of its mem- 
bers go out to them in their great sorrow.

For the Class. 

At a meeting of the Bowdoin Chapter of 
the Delta Upsilon Fraternity held October 2, 
1907, it was voted to drape the Charter for 
thirty days, and that the undergraduate mem- 
bers wear crape with their Fraternity pins 
during that period. 

This vote was passed as an outward expres- 
sion and tangible recognition of the inward 
sense of sorrow occasioned by the sudden and 
irreparable loss by drowning of Harry Joseph 
Dugan on the 9th day of July, 1907. 

The Fraternity and its undergraduate mem- 
bers especially have received a blow that time 
cannot eliminate, for always there will remain 
in the minds of each of his fraternity-mates a 
mental picture of him as they knew him, con- 
genial, happy, upright in conduct, and an 
example well worthy of being followed. He 
was in fact all that goes to make up an ideal 
college man. 

The undergraduate members of the Frater- 
nity are also mindful of the loss that his imme- 
diate family have suffered, and while they 

have not drained the cup of sorrow to its 
dregs, still, they feel that they have tasted of 
the bitterness of it, and desire to extend their

There are four new members of the Bow- 
doin College faculty this fall. The resigna- 
tion of Professor R. FI. Ham last spring to 
accept a position in Trinity and of Professor 
R. C. McCrea this summer on a call to 
Columbia left two vacancies in professorships. 
Two new instructors have also been added. 

Prof. F. W. Brown of Clark University, w 
succeeds Professor Ham. He is a graduate 
of Harvard and received the degree of Ph.D. 
from that institution in 1905. He has stud- 
ied abroad and spent one year in the Univer- 
sity of Grenoble at France. Dr. Brown is 
especially proficient in Italian, French and 
Spanish. He is occupying the same residence 
on Federal Street as did Mr. Flam. 

Professor Ab'.a M. Edwards has been 
secured to occupy the chair of Economics and 
Sociology for one year. He graduated from 
the University of Oklahoma and received the 
degree of Ph.D. from Yale. He has been 
recently engaged in research work for the 
Carnegie Institute of Washington, D. C. 

H. B. Hastings, a graduate of Massachu- ^ 
setts Institute of Technology, 1907, has been 
appointed to the new instructorship in 
Mechanical Drawing, Descriptive Geometry 
and Surveying. Ralph B. Stone, 1902, has 
been appointed an instructor in Physics and 
Mathematics. Mr. Stone has been studying 
in Germany. By the addition of these new 
instructorships the scope of the college along 
technical lines will be broadened. 


Among the more scholarly and substantial 
works added to the library during the sum- 
mer may be mentioned the complete writings 
of Cervantes, printed at Madrid in 1863 in 
twelve quarto volumes, and usually regarded 



as the best, as well as one of the most expen- 
sive editions of this famous author; the Eng- 
lish Historical Society's Collection of Monas- 
tic Chronicles, in twenty-three volumes ; 
Anderson's Norroena in fifteen volumes, with 
a fac simile reproduction of the Flatey Book ; 
fourteen volumes of the Kuenstler Mono- 
graphien from a benefactor living in Port- 
land whose name is unknown ; Hulbert's His- 
toric Highways of America in sixteen vol- 
umes. The briefer but important books pur- 
chased are represented by Rose's Develop- 
ment of European Nations, Davenport's Mez- 
zotints, Rich's Feathered Game of the North- 
east, Farne'.l's Cults of the Greek States, and 
Seymour's Life in the Homeric Age. 

Chief among the more popular works is a 
special paper limited edition of "The New 
America and the Far East" by G. Waldo 
Browne, a beautifu'lly illustrated work in six 
quarto volumes, presented by the publisher, 
Albert Marshall Jones of the Class of 1893. 
Similar to this in the attractiveness of its pic- 
tures is Rossiter Johnson's four-volume his- 
tory of the Columbian Exposition. Peary's 
Nearest the Pole, Birdseye's Individual Train- 
ing in Our Colleges, Waller's Through the 
Gates of the Netherlands, Howells' Certain 
Delightful English Towns, Eckstorm's David 
Libbey, Davey's Pageant of London, Ben- 
son's Beside Still Waters, while much less 
voluminous, will find an equal number of 
interested readers. 

The Board of Bowdoin College Preachers is to 
he continued this year through the genet osity of 
Professor and Mrs. Files. Ordinarily the visiting 
clergymen will preach in the Church on the Hill in 
the morning and conduct college chapel in the after- 
noon of the third Sunday in each month. The list 
for the first five months of the college year is as 
follows : 

Oct. 20 — President Charles Cuthbert Hall of 
Union Seminary, New York. 

Nor. 17 — Rev. Floyd Tonikins of Philadelphia. 

Dec. IS — President W. H. P. Faunce of Brown 
University, Providence. 

Jan. 19 — Rev. Donald Sage Mackay of New York. 

Feb. 16 — Rev. Henry Van Dyke of Princeton, 

At the meeting of the Glee and Mandolin-Guitar 
Clubs held the first of the term, Max P. Gushing, 
'09, was elected leader of the Glee Club, and How- 
ard F. Kane, '09, leader of the Mandolin-Guitor 

To the extensive collection of Longfellow por- 
traits possessed by the library, Professor Joseph C. 
Pickard of Maywood, 111., has added two photo- 
graphs of the bust by Lorado Taft which was pre- 
sented to the University of Illinois by the gradu- 
ating class last Commencement. 


New Bowdoin songs are always welcome. 
The following, originally sung at New York 
last year, should be added to those we now 
have : 

Bowdoin, Again 

Air : "Benediction." 

Bowdoin ! again to thy dear name we raise, 
With one accord our loving song of praise. 
We stand to laud thee, ere our meeting cease, 
Then homeward journey with thy words of 

In our young days the future was as night, 
But thou for us its darkness turned to light ; 
From harm and dangers kept thy children 

Oh ! Alma Mater, much we owe to thee. 

Thy Whispering Pines that edge the student's 

To Bowdoin's sons tell legends day by day. 
As they have told them in the years gone by, 
While in the winds their towering branches 


Loved Alma Mater, through our later life 
Solace our sorrow, be our help in strife. 
And when Death's voice shall bid life's con- 
flict cease. 
We'll leave dear Bowdoin for Eternal Peace. 
Original song coiitribnted by 
Mrs. Joseph B. Roberts. 


On the first day of October occurred the 
death of Dr. Edward Beecher Mason, for 
thirteen years pastor of the College Church, 
at his home in Brunswick. Although not a 
Bowdoin graduate himself, the college has 
never had a truer friend or one more willing 
to do what he could for the institution and the 
students. Dr. Mason had suffered from a 
long illness. Fie was sixty-nine years of age. 
He was born in Cincinnati, educated at Knox 
College, Ohio, and graduated from the Ando- 
ver Theological Seminary in 1861. He held 
five pastorates during his life. He came to 
Brunswick in 1890, and remained in active 
work until 1902, when ill-health forced him 
to resign. Of all Brunswick friends of Bow- 
doin it is safe to say there never was a man 
more beloved than Dr. Mason. In the thir- 
teen years he labored he was the earnest, 



unassuming friend of all, and many a grad- 
uate will be saddened to learn of his death. 
He was the friend of all who wished a friend. 
His life is a beautiful tribute to the profes- 
sion he so nobly represented. A high-minded, 
true Christian gentleman, was Dr. Mason. 
He performed considerable noteworthy liter- 
ary work during his life-time. It will be 
remembered that Dr. Mason was instrumental 
in the arranging for the series of musical 
recitals which were given in the Art Build- 
ing for two years and were so largely appre- 
ciated by the college. This is but one of the 
many things which Dr. Mason did as a friend 
to Bowdoin. "Friend" is his best tribute. He 
was a friend to all and to every one, and as 
such will be sadly missed. 


The real interest in football is just about to 
begin. The preliminary games are mostly 
over and the hard games are now before us. 
We certainly cannot face the approach of 
these games with the possibility of no music. 
We must have a band ! The college seems 
to have grown strangely lethargic in regard 
to this feature this last year. Our band was 
permitted to pass into oblivion last year. But 
it cannot be let stay there this year. A meet- 
ing should be called at once and the band 
revived for the approaching series of games. 


Rarely has a summer passed in which Bow- 
doin has been called to mourn a larger num- 
ber of its graduates. The death by drowning 
of a beloved member of the Class of 1905, 
Philip K. Greene, preceded only a few days 
the sad accidents that took away three of our 
undergraduates. The next week brought the 
news of the sudden decease of John C. San- 
born, Esq., a prominent lawyer of Lawrence, 
Mass., who had just celebrated in perfect 
health the jubilee anniversary of his gradu- 
ation. In this same month of July there was 
starred on our rolls the name of one who for 
years had been a tower of strength to the col- 
lege, and who, despite great physical weak- 
ness, had been present at the last meeting of 
the Board of Trustees, Gen. John Marsha'.l 
Brown, LL.D., of Portland. In the same 
week his college-mate and fellow-soldier, 
George Edwin Moulton, long prominent in 

the educational circles of the metropolis, died 
at his residence in Brooklvn. 

In August were recorded the deaths of 
Edward Albert Kelly, Class of 1850, a suc- 
cessful and trusted lawyer of Boston; Profes- 
sor Kingsbury Bachelder, L.H.D., Class of 
1871, of Hillsdale College, one of the most 
zealous and cultured of the many teachers 
Bowdoin has sent out ; and Dr. Charles B. 
Bridgham, Medical Class of 1863, a beloved 
and well-known physician of Cohasset, Mass. 

In September were announced the deaths 
of Walter W. Fogg, Class of 1896, a faith- 
ful man, who made a gallant fight against dis- 
ease; and Col. Isaac H. Wing of Bayfield, 
Wis., Class of 1856, whose great generosity 
to his -Alma Mater is by no means the only 
reason his memory should be cherished here. 
It is impracticable to print a full account of 
the careers of all these in the columns of the 
Orient, but the usual sketches giving accu- 
rate details of their lives will be subsequently 
published in the proper number of the Obitu- 
ary Record.

Amherst, 17; Bowdoin, o. 

Last Saturday Amherst defeated Bowdoin 
on Pratt Field, Amherst, by the score of 17 to 
o. Amherst made most of her gains by for- 
ward passes and thru the line. Bowdoin's 
line did not seem to hold well, but this was 
probably due to the fact that Amherst's line 
outweighed her. Amherst's backs played 
well, but Bowdoin's backfield was fully as fast, 
working like clock-work. The first touch- 
down was made on a forward pass, Keith mak- 
ing the score. Atwood followed with another 
touchdown, after a brilliant run around Bow- 
doin's right end. During the rest of the half 
there was much punting, neither side being 
able to make gains. 

In the second half Bowdoin played a snap- 
pier game. Besides holding Amherst down to 
one touchdown, many gains were made thru 
Amherst's line. In this half Lee succeeded in 
breaking thru the Amherst line and made 
thirty yards before he was downed.

Last June Bowdoin sent a regular delega- 
tion to the Y. M. C. A. Conference of the 
Eastern and Canadian Colleges which is held 
annually at Northfield, Mass. The delegation 
consisted of J. F. Morrison, '08, L. F. Tim- 
berlake, '09, M. P. Cushing, '09, and H. H. 
Burton, '09. The other Maine colleges were 

also represented, and the whole delegation 
from the State numbered over thirty, includ- 
ing delegates . from several preparatory 
schools. There were present at the confer- 
ence over 600 men, the three largest delega- 
tions being from Yale, Harvard, and Univer- 
sity of Pennsylvania, with about 175, 125, and 
75 representatives respectively. 

The conference lasted from June 28 to July 
7. Most of the students slept in tents and ate 
in the large dining halls, which were the halls 
of the Northfield Seminary, on the grounds of 
which the conference is held. Every morn- 
ing there was a program consisting of Mission 
Study classes — one of the most popular of 
which was an excellent course by a man who 
has worked for eight years in the New York 
slums, Bible Study classes led by experienced 
students, and at eleven o'clock a general meet- 
ing where some speaker addressed the whole 
conference. The afternoons were devoted 
entirely to sports — the Maine delegation show- 
ing up best in the baseball series in which the 
all-Maine team reached the semi-finals. In 
the evening short outdoor meetings were held 
at which talks are given on "Life Work," and 
later a general meeting was again held and 
addressed by some good speakers. 

The conference was something entirely dif- 
ferent from anything which takes place any- 
where else, and was made something worth 
while to every student, because the speakers 
were very strong, and the type of college man 
present, was not the mollycoddle but the man 
who has some honest purpose. The confer- 
ence was valuable to the delegates who went 
from Bowdoin, and all the '09 men are plan- 
ning to go again this spring, with as many 
more as may be interested. 


The first meeting of the Christian Associa- 
tion was held in Banister Hall, Thursday even- 
ing, Oct. 10. A large body of undergraduates 
assembled to listen to Prof. Chapman's talk 
on : "Three Things a College Community 
Can Expect of a Christian." He took the 

J 24 


tliree qualities of brotlierly love, manliness, 
and godliness and froni these developed an 
ideal coKege community. The talk was fol- 
lowed by a short business meeting in which 
resolutions were passed on ]\Iorrison and Lee, 
the former president and vice-president of the 
association. Then followed election of officers. 
Purington, 'o8, was elected president, and 
the executive and other committees were

The Sophomores took the Freshmen into camp in 
the second game of the series held between the 
two classes. The final score was 13 to 5 and it was 
a significant indication of the looseness which char- 
acterized the entire game. Pearson, who went into 
the box for the Freshmen, passed the first three men 
who faced him and then the Sophomores by bunch- 
ing their hits scored four runs before the Freshmen 
got fairly awake. The second inning was a practi- 
cal repetition of the first, by some excellent base run- 
ning and some timely hitting the Sophomores added 
three more runs to their score. At this point the 
Freshmen gathered themselves together and in their 
half of the third they tallied two runs. Clifford 
who replaced Pearson, proved more effective and 
the game proceeded on more even terms until the 
eighth when the first year men again went to pieces 
and allowed the Sophomores to score heavily. 
Hobbs for the Sophomores pitched a strong game. 
He kept his hits well scattered, passed but few men 
and backed by some snappy team work, he was 
always invincible at critical periods. Score by 
innings : 

1911 o o 2 I o I o I — 5

The following is the list of the speakers from 
1908 who will compete in the Class of 1868 Prize 
Speaking. Six men are chosen from the Senior 
Class, based on excellence in writing and speaking

dle of January :

As is very we'.I known the scholarship 
requirements for Freshmen at Bowdoin are 
very strict, for those who desire to take part 
in any form of athletics whatsoever. As so 
many fellows are debarred every year from 
being on any team, the Orient gives the fol- 



lowing brief summary of the rules in regard 
to Freshmen. We give free warning that 
these rules are strictly enforced and no excep- 
tion is ever permitted. No athlete need think 
that any consideration will be shown him, no 
matter how important a factor he is. Just 
remember the following: 

A review of all Freshmen classes are he'.d 
six weeks after the opening of the term. Any 
first year man who is low in any one subject 
at this time is debarred from football and all 
fall sports. A man may be debarred if he is 
lozv, he does not necessarily have to be below 

If a first year man flunks one course at the 
mid-years he is debarred from all athletics in 
the spring. This applies to second team, as 
well as the first team in baseball. 

Remember these rules. They are simple 
enough. And also remember, if you do flunk 
a subject, there is no possible way for you to 
make it up, and to represent the college or 
the class. Take warning in time, that you 
may have no necessity for saying that "you 
didn't know about it." 

Of course if a man is warned at the mid- 
term examinations, and then passes every- 
thing at the mid-years, he is eligible for the 
spring. If a Freshman flunks A.gebra, he 
must get enough rank in his geometry to make 
his average come above passing in order to 
take part in any spring athletics. These are 
the summary of the rules. 


Notice is given that the annual competition 
for positions on the editorial board of the 
Orient will commence next week. The pres- 
ent volume is completed in March and new 
members will be taken on to the staff at that 
time. The competition is open essentially to 
members of the Freshman Class, although 
there will be one Sophomore added to the 
editors. As there are a number of vacancies 
to be filled, a large number of Freshmen 
should enter the competition. Those desiring 
to consider themselves as candidates should 
hand their names to the editor-in-chief as 
soon as possible. The selection of the board 
is based on the quantity and quality of the 
work done. Candidates should hand in mat- 
ter every week, mainly college notes. Also 
they will be assigned special write-ups from 
time to time. At least three editorials are to 
be submitted, and one shall be printed. 

Orient copy has to be sent up to the printer's 
on Monday or Tuesday evenings. Copy may 
be left at Room ii, South Winthrop Hall, 
before 9.30 p.m. on either of these days. It is 
hoped that a large number of 1911 men will 
appear as candidates for the college news- 


It has been decided to offer three prizes, 
which shall be open to anyone who is not on 
the board — whether an undergraduate or 
member of the faculty. The prizes are to be 
awarded as follows : 

Three dollars for the best "limerick" on 
any member of the faculty. 

Two dollars for the best "grind" — other 
than a limerick — on any member of the 

Two dollars for the best prose write-up, 
similar to those in the 1908 Bugle, of any 
member of the Class of 1909. 

The prizes will be awarded by vote of the 
board, especial favor being given to original 
ideas. All articles should be typewritten, and 
handed to some member of the board before 
March i, 1908, at the latest, and it is hoped 
that the articles will be submitted as soon as 


At the meeting of the Dramatic Club held 
on Tuesday evening in Banister Hall, it was 
decided to hold the first rehearsal for the cast 
of characters on Friday evening at 6.45 in the 
Y. .M. C.A. room, with Miss Curtis and two 
members of the faculty as judges. The faculty 
has granted the club permission to make its 
first trip with the possible permission of fur- 
ther trips later. The play to be presented this 
season is "Half Back Sandy" and will proba- 
bly be given first at Bangor, Rockland and 
Farmington. The same play was presented 
by the Colby Dramatic Club last season with 
ereat success. 


The men in the college choir this year are 
as follows : 

From the Class of 1908, Foss ; from 1909, 
Brown; from 1910, Stephens, Stone, Draper, 
Morss, Davie, Crosby, Crowell, Sanborn, Wil- 
son and Matthews; from 191 1, Whittemore, 
Richards, Davis, Kellogg and Parkman.

not purpose to be general 

and vague in the subjects for treatment, but 

rather if it does find something upon which 

comment is necessary, to speak out sharply 

and decisively. Along this line we desire once 

again to advance an opinion in regard to the 

way that news of Bowdoin is reported among 

the neighboring papers. Nothing is more 

injurious to the name of the college than the 

methods that some people take to advertise it. 

For instance, there was the large picture which 

appeared in a certain paper of the Freshmen 

taken down street. The publisher of this was 

probably not a student in Bowdoin, it does not 

seem to the Orient that a student in college 

could possib'y have lack of realization enough 

to permit the circulation of such a sample, but 

this is just an example of some of the stories 

that are permitted to get around in regard to 

the college. This evil of bad reports going 

out as news is probably something that will 
never be stopped. As long as some men think 
wholly of space anything will be sent out that 
can be counted up as news. There are, how- 
ever, two statements that we do desire to make 
in regard to this, first that the Orient hear- 
tily condemns a'l such reports, and cordially 
requests those who write for all papers to use 
every discretion and thought. And then again 
we urge the undergraduate body to take par- 
ticular care that all student activities that may 
be misrepresented be carefully confined to the 
campus, so that no garbled accounts of what 
we are doing be permitted to be circulated 
through the papers of the State. We are not 
like Dowie, "damning the reporters," but we 
are asking them to show some sense. 

Quill subscriptions are 

An Old Subject usually like a case of 

Mentioned Again the m e a s 1 e s — carefully 

avoided. When last year's 
Quill manager made the rounds of the college 
recently to collect back subscriptions, he found 
the doors all locked in the ends and nobody at 
home at the fraternity houses. Investigation 
revealed a half dozen men concealed in the 
attic, another half-dozen buried in the coal 
bin, and every closet inhabited by those seek- 
ing to avoid the searching eye of the co'lector. 
That this condition exists is a misfortune 
for the Quill manager and at the same time it 
hardly speaks well for the spirit of the college. 
There is probably not a man in college who 
will not agree that the Quill is a good thing, 
and yet that same man will be found in the 
coa! bin when he thinks his Qxiill is going to 
cost him a dollar. He will go down on the 
athletic field and howl a whole afternoon 
about the Bowdoin spirit, and yet he will 
dodge a Quill subscription as readily as a duck 
will shed water. Fie is undoubtedly a good 
rooter and his financial support of the athletic 
teams will be good, but his Bowdoin spirit is 

The football management 
Concerning Football feels that the student body 
has not given it proper 
support this year in regard to football sub- 
scriptions. Football is by far the most expen- 
sive line of athletics that we have here at Bow- 
doin and it needs the enthusiastic support of 
every Bowdoin man. Nearly one-third of the 
students here have either refused to subscribe 



or have put off those soliciting subscriptions 
by saying "I can't afford it." Every man can 
give a little, however small, to support this 
line of college activity. It is as much a fel- 
low's duty to support athletics in college as it 
is for him to meet any of the obligations 
which a college course demands. 

The management is in particularly hard 
financial standing this year, as it has had 
to fit out with entirely new goods nearly every 
man on the squad. Every student knows that 
in order to do good work a football man must 
have good suits and good shoes, but athletic 
goods are expensive and tlie management 
must have money in order to fit out the men 
properly. Every fellow who has been out for 
football will testify that the manaeement has 
done its utmost to give the men the very best 
of everything. 

In many colleges a certain sum of money to 
support athletics is charged on the students' 
term bills. Here student subscriptions have 
been entirely voluntary, but the fellows have 
always shown a true Bowdoin spirit in back- 
ing the college teams. Now some of the stu- 
dents act as if it were a personal insult to 
approach them for money to support athletics. 
It is not for the management itself but for the 
interests of the team that we plead the sup- 
port of the students. 


Many People Worried at Report that the 
Famous Pines of Bowdoin Are Being 
Destroyed by Blight — Interview with 
Professor Lee. 

A report has been current in the papers 
during the past week to the effect that the 
blight that is attacking the pine forests of 
the State of Maine has spread to the famous 
Bowdoin trees and that destruction threatens 
them. Professor Austin Gary, of the Har- 
vard University Forestry School, and Profes- 
sor Leslie A. Lee have both been talked with 
in regard to the matter. While there is a cer- 
tain disease which seems to be attacking the 
trees, both these experts seem to think that it 
is due principally to climatic conditions and 
eventually a cure will be discovered. The 
Orient most assuredly hopes that some rem- 
edy will be found as any injury to the "Bow- 
doin Pines" would be a sad blow indeed. 

Professor Lee says in regard to this mat- 

"The government expert at Washington 
who has made a study of the tops of pine 

trees is of the opinion that the blight which 
has struck our trees is due to climatic con- 
ditions. The expert at Washington who has 
made a special study of the roots of pines is 
also of this opinion. If this is true we can no 
doubt successfully wrestle with the matter. 
In fact, it is one which will probably correct 

"Recently we have had specimens of pine 
trees sent from the western part of the state 
which were infected by a maggot, but this 
is not the trouble with the Bowdoin pines, or 
of many other pine trees which are diseased. 
The trees on the Bowdoin grounds, as well 
as in some other parts of the State, turn yel- 
low, and there is a fungus in the tops. It is 
this condition which is being studied. 

"The government experts are taking an 
unusual interest in this matter, and are ask- 
ing for help from all who may have any 
information to communicate. Prof. Austin 
Gary, the Harvard University expert, and 
myself are doing all we can to assist in the 
matter, and we shall be glad to have any sug- 
gestions and information from any source. 

"Of course, the alumni and friends of Bow- 
doin are very anxious about the matter, as the 
loss of the famous trees about which 
Longfellow and Hawthorne sang and other 
famous men have written, would be greatly 
regretted. Their loss would also be a source 
of regret to all Maine people, who instinctively 
connect the 'whispering pines' with its old and 
loved institution of learning. We hope before 
long to have information which will be more 
definite, and trust that it will be of an encour- 
aging" nature. 

"If a blight had struck the college pines it 
also no doubt has extended to pines in other 
parts of the State. A disease which would 
cause the death of the thousands of pine trees 
in the State would be a great calamity. It 
would mean a large financial loss, as these 
trees are of great value at present, and their 
value increases from year to year. 

"The people of Maine, I feel sure, can rest 
assured that the experts of the government 
forestry department are doing all possible to 
find the real cause of the disease, and to 
ascertain if possible the proper remedy." 


At various intervals during past years 
Press Clubs have been formed at college by 
the representatives of the various newspapers 
among the undergraduates. Once again a 



movement seems to be on foot to start such a 
club. Such an organization is capable of 
doing considerable good. No one thing does 
more harm to the college than the pernicious 
reports that are permitted to be published in 
the papers. If some club can be formed which 
will render its members individual aid and at 
the same time refrain from printing such 
specimens of journalistic ventures as have at 
times appeared, much good might be done. 
The Orient most heartily hopes that such a 
club will be formed and some actual good will 
be accomplished. 


Much discussion has arisen this fall, in 
regard to the recommendation of the faculty 
that all public parades and features be omitted 
this year as a feature of the fraternity initia- 
tions. Many complaints have come to the 
college from this source. It is hoped that this 
year all such exhibitions will be dispensed 
with which tend towards giving the college a 
bad name. The parading of Freshmen 
through the streets and in particular at the 
railroad station does no good and in many 
cases has worked distinct harm to Bowdoin. 
Delegates from each fraternity unanimously 
voted to recommend that all such features be 
omitted this year. A committee, composed 
of Professors Robinson, Mitchell and Foster, 
addressed the fo'.lowing letter to the Inter- 
Fraternity Council, which the Orient pub- 
lishes : 

September 27, 1907. 
To the Intcrfratcrnity Council: 

Gentlemen : As chairman of a commit- 
tee of the faculty appointed to consider cer- 
tain matters relating to the welfare of the 
college, I have been recjuested by the faculty 
to ask you to consider the question of the 
public hazing of those who are to be taken in- 
to the dififerent fraternities. 

It is the unanimous feeling of the faculty 
that such exhibitions as have taken place in 
the last few years, a few days before the ini- 
tiation of new members, are a district injury 
to the cohege and to all that is best in the 
fraternity life. 

I do not need to go into details at this 
time. I simply ask you, in the name of the 
faculty, to discuss the matter, feeling sure that 
as a result of such discussion, you will devise 

means to confine all initiation exercises here- 
after to the chapter houses themselves. 

Congratulating you upon the formation of 
this council, and thanking you for the privi- 
lege of addressing it, 

I am, yours very truly, 

F. C. Robinson. 


The Orient has noticed this fall what 
seems to be a serious falling off in the way the 
undergraduate body supports the football 
team at the games. There seems to be very 
little interest taken in the matter of cheering. 
Whether the team is winning or losing, the fel- 
lows in the grandstand should do their part. 
They should show their confidence in the cap- 
tain and team, giving their support by cheer- 
ing. By cheering we mean, not shouting and 
giving the college cheers when our team 
makes a good play, but keeping it up through 
the whole game no matter which side has the 
better of it. Oftentimes this may make all the 
difference between a defeat and a victory. 
Anyone who has played upon a team of any 
sort knows how much it means to feel that 
he has the support of the whole student body. 
There is another thing which the Orient 
wishes to call to the attention of its readers. 
This is that there is an effort on foot to organ- 
ize a college band for the games. Every one 
unite to make this a success. And remember, 
all come down to the field, Saturday, and 


This fall, for the first time, Bowdoin will 
held a cross country race with another college. 
This event will come off the ' first of next 
month and will be run over a course here in 
Brunswick. The team will consist of six men. 
There is the possibility of the team's winning 
their B's if they beat Bates. All who want to 
compete for this team should join the cross 
country squad which runs from the gymna- 
sium every afternoon. In addition to this 
there will be a hare and hound race twice 
a week. So far there have been only eight 
men out and more are needed. The men who 
ran Saturday were A. L. Robinson and N. S. 
Weston, hares ; and Thompson, Timberlake, 
G. M. Pierce, Slocum, Colbath and H. L. Rob- 
inson, hounds.

The Maine Campus makes the observation that in 
the Bowdoin-Harvand game the score was the 
smallest that a Maine College ever held Harvard to; 
even eclipsing the 6-0 score of the Maine-Harvard 
game in 1903. 

The new courses in mechanical drawing, descrip-

Bowdoin's Pines are turning yellow and there is a 
fungus in the tops. Professor Lee and Professor i^ 
Austin Cary, the Harvard University expert, are 
making a Study of the trees, with a view of finding 
the proper remedy to save them. 

All students who take the Quill are urged to pay 
their subscriptions promptly. It is rather hard to 
collect these and it seems to be growing harder. 
This should not be. Remember that the Quill is an 
undergraduate activity and should receive proper 
support as such. 

All members who expect to graduate with or who 
entered college with the Class of 1909 will please 
give their Bugle photographs to R. H. Files on or 
before Dec. 15, as the engraving this year will prob- 
ably be done outside of the State and all cuts must 
be in at an early date. 

The gift from the daughters of Longfellow, estab- 
lishing a post-graduate scholarship enables the 
faculty to offer $500 this year and next, available 
for a member of -the Class of 1908 and for 1909. 
The student having the advantage of this scholar- 
ship can pursue graduate work in some other col- 
lege or abroad. The work to be done will be in 
English or General Literature. 

At the annual meeting of the American Public 
Health Association held the first of this month at 
Atlantic City, N. J., Professor Robinson, represent-

is to revise the constitution of the association dur- 
ing- the coming year. The convention was very 
pleasantly entertained in Atlantic City which has 
some of the best appointed hotels in the United 
States, and which thoroughly understands the art 
of making a convention go smoothly. The discus- 
sion was by the most prominent men from all over 
the country and this year public health subjects 
were considered which were not so closely con- 
nected with specific infectious diseases as such top- 
ics usually are. Some of the subjects considered 
were streets, immigration, the health of school chil- 
dren in large cities. At the banquet held one night 
Professor Robinson was chairman and toast-master.

Springfield REruBLiCAN Apologizes for Statement 
THAT This Author's Boy Heroes are Unnat- 

An article appeared during the summer in the 
Springfield Republican, in the course of which the 
fiction of Elijah Kellogg was referred to and his 
works were classed, with Horatio Alger, Jr.'s, as 
having unnatural boy heroes. W. F. Gregory, of 
Lothrop, Lee and Shepard called the attention of 
the paper to the error of this statement, and it is 
interesting to note that the paper realized the inad- 
vertent mistake it had made. Apology is extended 
in the following manner : 

"The 'villain of the tale, either a rich and respect- 
able squire or the sneaky son of such a man,' does 
not fit the 'Elm Island' series. Mr. Kellogg 
described the life of boys, and also of the whole 
citizenry of the Maine coast in the days just after 
the Revolution, and then a little farther on, in 
graphic simplicity. There was the clearing of the 
land, the farming and the hunting and the^ fishing, 
and enterprises in sailing to other countries with 
furs that the young men got by trapping, etc., — 
the American seaboard marine and the Navy of 
1812 we:e manned by these hardy youth of the 

"But nothing save clean manliness is to be found 
in Parson Kellogg's books, and much moral force, ■ 
also, in the reclamation of reckless youth from evil 
habits, and the enlargement of strong-fibered life in 
those who did well. The 'smart boy,' who accom- 
plishes impossible results in the midst of city tempta- 
tions and gets to the top, is not one of Mr. Kel- 
logg's heroes. Of course, if one undertakes to write 
the story of a lot of choice boys in a primitive set- 
tlement, he is bound to make them better and abler 
than they perhaps were. 'Elm Island' is a bit ideal, 
but it is not vulgar. There was an inadvertence. 
The beloved old author of the orations of Sparta- 
cus and Regulus, the faithful pastor of Harpswell 
for half a century, was not a human-nature faker." 


On Saturday, the 12th, Bowdoin's second eleven 
lost to Hebron Academy by a score of 26-0. The 
playing on both sides was clean and fast, but the 
home team vastly outweighed its opponents. The 
second eleven, however, deserves great credit for its 
rally in the second half when it rushed the ball 
close to Hebron's goal and prevented her from 
scoring again. 

Bowdoin won the kick-off but with the aid of 
Stacey, Hebron rushed the ball repeatedly for touch- 

Nulty of Bowdoin, who missed the early train, 
arrived in time for the second half when he substi- 
tuted for Wakefield, doing splendid work. 

The game was played in 20- and is-minute halves. 


Arrangements are being made with Webber 
to take group pictures of the several classes 
on the Art Building steps. These pictures are 
being taken especially for the Bugle, but 
everyone desiring a photograph will be able 
to buy one of Webber. It is hoped that a'.l 
the classes will organize as soon as possible so 
that the groups may be taken. This is an 
excellent idea, carried out in other colleges, 
and it is most earnestly hoped that when the 
time for the taking of these pictures does 
come, every member of each class will be in 
attendance, as they will be attractive memen- 
toes of a college course, but mementoes that 
will decrease just so much in value for each 
man who is not present. 


A college orchestra is being organized by Philip 
Morse, '10. Blanks have been posted at the various 
fraternity houses and all men who play or who have 
ever played a musical instrument are requested to 
sign their names on them. So far about twenty-five 
names have been handed in. To make an organiza- 
tion of the kind thoroughly successful the full and 
hearty support of a large number of men is 

The men out are as follows : 

First violins, F. T. Smith, '08; Wentworth, '09; 
Callahan, '11; Merrill, '11; Kellogg, '11; Burkett, 

Second violins, Pierce, '11; Curtis, '11; Marston, 

Cornets, Manter, '09; W. E. Atwood, '10; Swan, 
'11; Hubbard, 'ii ; F. T. Richards, '11; Taylor, '11. 

Clarinets, Kern, '11; Whittemore, '11. 

'Cello, Bridge, '09. 

Trombone, R. W. Smith, '10. 

Drums, H. Smith, '09; Matthews, '10. 

A band will also be organized utilizing the men 
above named who play either brass instruments or 

If the orchestra is successful, the faculty will 
grant it permission to make out-of-town engage- 


Captain H. L. Robinson reports that the outlook 
for a strong Freshmen track team is very good 
this fall. With a large class to pick from and the 
help of Coach Morrill and Captain Atwood of the 
'varsity, it seems as if 191 1 ought to turn out a 
team which will win from Bates 191 1. The 
meet will take place at Lewiston, on October 26. 
Freshmen are urged to come down to the field 
every afternoon and try out for something. Often 
a good track man is developed out of a candidate 
who has never done anything in track athletics. All 
men have a chance to make something of them- 
selves in this branch of college athletics, heavy men 
in the weights, long-legged men in the runs and 
so on. 



So far there have been fifteen or twenty men at 
the field every afternoon. In the sprints there are 
Allen, Kaulbach, S. W. Pierce, Wiggin, all of whom 
are showing up well. Davis and S. W. Pierce are 
out for the high jump; Allen for the pole vault; 
Kaulbach and Wiggin for the hurdles ; F. H. 
Purington and Cartland for the quarter mile ; H. S. 
White and S. W. Pierce for the broad jump; H. L. 
Robinson and Robbins for the distance runs ; Clif- 
ford, ■ Torsney and Hastings for the weights. The 
team will be composed of about fifteen men. Come 
out 191 1, show your spirit and try to win your

Mrs. Elizabeth Lincoln Talbot, widow of Hon. 
George Foster Talbot of this class, died at her home 
in Portland Sept. 30, 1907. 

Hon. William Gaslin of Alma, Nebraska, who has 
been spending the summer with his sister, Mrs. Wil- 
liam G. Haskell of Augusta, fell a victim to one of 
the pickpockets that frequent the Union Station at 
Portland. Being jostled in a crowd he afterwards 
discovered the loss of his pocketbook containing 
valuable papers and his ticket to Chicago, besides 
cash for his travelling expenses. Fortunately, he 
had another sura of money on his person, so that 
his journey was merely delayed. 

"The democrats of Springfield, Mass., regard it 
highly important that the best man obtainable for 
the party and for the city should be the candidate 
for Mayor this year," says the Springfield Repub- 
lican. "Many leading democrats have suggested 
the name of James L. Doherty as the man who 
would offer this qualification and who, even in a 
two-sided contest, would be assured of an election 
if he would accept the nomination. Mr. Doherty is 
a lawyer with a growing business which he feels it 
his duty to attend to, and he feels that there are 
other men in the party better able to handle the 
city's affairs who can better afford the time. He 
would feel that an election to the mayoralty would 
involve a study of the municipal problems that 
would be most exacting and he would not be satis- 
fied to do less than devote his entire energy to 
directing the city's affairs. This he does not feel 
that he can afford to do. 


The Standard's correspondent at Middleboro, 
Mass., publishes the following under date of Sept. 
21, 1907: 

The call which was recently extended to the Rev. 
Norman McKinnon of Cliftondale to become pas- 
tor of the Central Congregational Church here has 
been accepted, and Mr. McKinnon will assume his 
new duties Oct. 25.

removing to this country in 1882. He had received 
his early education in Scotland and when he came

BowDOiN o, New Hampshire State, 5. 

In a well-played game New Hampshire 
State defeated Bowdoin last Saturday by the 
score of 5-0. This is the first time that New 
Hampshire has ever scored on a Bowdoin 

In the first half the ball was in Bowdoin's 
territory, being kept there by the fierce line 
bucking of the New Hampshire boys. Their 
backs would buck Bowdoin's line time and 
again, making good gains from tackle to 
tack'e. Towards the close of the half New 
Hampshire was on Bowdoin's one-yard line. 
Twice Bowdoin held, and on the third down 
Cone fumbled, but secured the ball again for 
first down. Penalties brought the ball back on 
Bowdoin's 18-yard line — where McCircle tried 
a goal from the field, but failed. A series of 
punts followed, the half ending with he bal' in 
New Hampshire's possession on her 23-yard 

In the second ha'f New Hampshire by 
steady line gains thru Bowdoin's left guard 
and tackle, brought the ball across the line. 
Captain Crowley objected to the touchdown, 
claiming that the ball was not across the line, 
but Referee Smith allowed the touchdown on 
the grounds that Bowdoin had pushed the ball 
back after the whistle b'ew. Bowdoin tried 
hard on the next kick-off to score, but New 
Hampshire's line held like a stone-wall.

Crowd Should Attend. 

To-morrow Bowdoin plays Colby her first 
game in the championship series. To date 
Colby has beaten Kent's Hill and Fort McKin- 
ley by large scores, played New Hampshire 
State to a nothing-nothing score, and last Sat- 
urday beat Bates by a 5-0 score. This latter 
game was a great surprise to fo' lowers of foot- 
ball for to Bates was conceded one of the 
strongest teams a Maine College has ever 
turned out. In 1904 Bowdoin beat Colby, 
52-0, in 1905, 5-0, while last fall Bowdoin was 
played to a standstill, the final score being 0-0. 

Colby will have practica ly the same line-up 
to-morrow as that which met Bates last Sat- 
urday. There will probably be several shifts 
in the Bowdoin line — neither Coach McClave 
nor Captain Crowley feeling satisfied with last 
week's game with New Hampshire.

Bates, 1911, vs. Bowdoin, 191 i, at Lewis- 
ton, To-Morrow. 

Bowdoin, 191 1, will appear to-morrow 
for the first time pitted as a class against 
another body in an athletic contest. Bow- 
doin Freshmen and Bates Freshmen hold 
a meet at Lewiston to-morrow. It must be 
confessed that Bowdoin will be represented 
with but a fair team. The Freshmen have 
shown but very little interest in training for 

J 34 


the meet. Every 191 1 man who does not go 
with the college to Waterville should certainly 
travel to Lewiston and encourage his class- 
mates, that the class may seem to have spirit 
in watching an event, if they cannot work for 
it. Captain Atwood and Coach Merri 1 of the 
'varsity will accompany the team. The fol- 
lowing is the team that will represent the 
Bowdoin youngsters : Captain Rob'nson, Half 
Mile and jN'Iile; Wiggin, Hurdles and Pole 
^'ault ; Kaulbach, Sprints; Clifford, Weights; 
E. Davis, Weights and High Jump ; L. Davis, 
Weights and Broad Jump ; Hastings, Weights ; 
Pierce, Broad Jump, High Jump and Plurdles ; 
Aden, Pole Vault and Quarter Mile; Hine, 
Half Mile ; Skillin, Mile ;~Cole, Quarter Mile. 


Cross Country Run Given Up — Lewiston 
College Wanted Eterything 

Bowdoin will not meet Bates in a cross 
country run this fall. Although the arrange- 
ments here were supposed to be completed, it 
seems that Bates had conceived the idea that 
the cross country run was to be held at the 
same time as the Freshmen Meet at Lewiston. 
Furthermore, our opponents had the impres- 
sion that the race was to be run only by men 
from the three upper classes of each colege! 
Bowdoin had regarded the race in an abso- 
lutely different light. We had prepared for a 
'varsity contest to be held on some other date. 
Inasmuch as no agreement could be reached, 
the race was. declared off. It seems to Bow- 
doin that the fault is certainly not with her. 
We were anxious to win and were even will- 
ing to let Bates have both the Freshmen Meet 
and Cross Country in Lewiston, but certainly 
never did have any understanding that we 
were to debar our Freshmen. If Bowdoin 
liblds an athletic event, she desires that every- 
one shal- take part who can. Just what defi- 
nite advantage Bates considers Bowdoin is 
receiving by running Freshmen more than she 
herself will get, it is impossible to see. At any 
rate, no agreement could be arrived at, so 
Bowdoin will go elsewhere for a cross country 
opponent. The Bowdoin team is still in train- 
ing, and it is hoped that some race will be 


Bowdoin to Run Tufts .\t Brunswick or 


As the cross country run between Bowdoin 
and Bates has been called off, it has been 
arranged to have one between Bowdoin and 
Tufts. Plans for this are not fully completed 
as yet, but it will probab y take place on Fri- 
day or Saturday of next week, either here or 
in Portland. All who are interested in this 
form of Track Athletics will be glad to 
learn that there will be a run this fa 1 
even though Bates refused to run. It is, of 
course, a good thing for Bowdoin to get into 
active relations with an out of state college 
and, of course, there is a 1 the more induce- 
ment for us to win. Our team has been train- 
ing well this fall and, if they keep it up, we 
will stand a good show of coming out ahead. 
The trials for the team will be held next Mon- 
day or Tuesday. The team will be composed 
of six men, the same as was p anned formerly. 
Tufts has suggested the idea that the race be 
held in Portland at the same time as the foot- 
ba 1 game, as an added feature of interest. 
Such would seem to be an excellent idea, 
although it would scarcelv be practical to run 
on the same afternoon, but a race may be held 
on Saturday morning or even Friday after- 
noon. The plans for the race had not been 
definitely decided when -the Orient went to 
press. There is no doubt but that a race 
will be arranged — Tufts fellows are good 
sportsmen ! Bowdoin will have her hands fu 1 
in this run and hard training will be carried 
on from this time. The following men are 
most prominent among the runners now : Rob- 
inson, '08 ; Weston, '08 ; Stone, '09 ; Timber- 
lake, '08; Slocum, '10; Colbath, '10; R. D. 
Morss, '10; Robinson, '11; Kellogg, '11. All 
the men are good and a fast team will be 
developed. "B's" wid undoubtedly be granted 
if the team wins. 


Last Thursday evening the Christian Asso- 
ciation had the p'easure and honor of listen- 
ing to an address delivered by President Chase 
of Bates. 

L'nder the title of "The Problems Of a Col- 
lege Man," he spoke of "The Constructive 
Life," impressing upon the minds of those 
present, by relating episodes of many colleges, 



especially of Harvard and Bowdoin, that 
purity and magnanimity are most essential in 
the deve'opment of higher and nobler char- 
acters of man. 

Perhaps the part of his address which inter- 
ests us most is the way in which he spoke of 
Bowdoin and Bowdoin men, relating the inci- 
dent of the first college man he met, who hap- 
pened to be a Bowdoin graduate. "That 
man, he said, has made a success of life in 
every way which has been the case of every 
Bowdoin man I have had the pleasure of 
knowing." Then he spoke of the great esteem 
and honor with which he had always held 
Bowdoin and her sons. 

In short, those who heard him were 
pleased, not because he spoke so highly of our 
college, but because he spoke of facts so 
grouped that they were interesting to all who 
were present. 


On Sunday last Rev. Charles Cuthbert 
Hall, of Union Seminary, New York, visited 
Brunswick, as the first college preacher of the 
present year. His talk at chapel was espe- 
cially interesting and pertinent. He said in 

"At your present stage in life there are two 
admonitions of Christ which commend them- 
selves with unusual force. First, the outlook 
into life should be broad and penetrating; and 
second, the actual "launching out" shou d be 
swift and far-reaching. People, nowadays, 
are too prone to spend their lives in the shal- 
lows, too easily satisfied with the local inci- 
dentals of daily existence. 

Men and especially col'ege men, read his- 
tory, appreciate and enjoy the lives and actions 
of those 'whose names are written large,' 
without any especial thought of those who are 
to work and do the things in contemporary 
history. It should be the purpose of college 
men to cast aside this apathetic attitude and 
to fit themselves for the greatest and truest 
trusts of life by launching out early while 
youth's longings are strong. 

In Longfellow and Hawthorne, two of 
Bowdoin's famous sons, we find men who first 
took this broad outlook, and then started 
boldly out. As a result of their timely real- 
ization of youthful possibilities, we have influ- 
ences that are still living and standing for the 
noblest ends and aims." 


Bowdoin, 191 i, Upholds the College Tra- 
dition AND Dutifully Loses its Baseball 
Series to the Sophomores. 

The Sophomores won the third and decid- 
ing game in the series with the Freshmen, 
defeating them, 5 to 2, in a most exciting 
game. The Freshmen, though defeated, 
played a remarkably snappy and consistent 
game. In fact, the only uninteresting and 
unequal periods of the entire game were the 
second and fifth innings when each time by 
some timely hitting and a serious error on the 
part of their opponents the Sophomores were 
able to pile up the runs which later won 
them the contest. Hobbs pitched a strong, 
consistent game for the Sophomores and 
it was only as the result of a home run 
by Clifford and an inexcusable f umb e by Ross 
that the Freshmen were able to score at all. 
The feature of the game was a fine one-handed 
catch by Lawless. The score:

The Interfraternity ^"""§^ *^ P^'^ ^^*. ^f ^ 

^ ., ' a new col ege organization 

council 1 • , 1 • 1-1 

has come into being which 

bids fair to soften many long standing preju- 
dices, and draw the college community one 
step nearer to its ideal. In the fall of 1906 the 
student body, in view of a long standing want, 
took the initiative and created the body known 
as the "interfraternity council," made up of 

the best bone arid sinew in the eisfht Greek- 
... -^ 

letter societies. 

The flexibility and effectiveness of this 
body was at once demonstrated. It met, not 
sporadically, but regularly and often. Ques- 
tions incapable of so'ution in the individual 
fraternity halls were discussed and settled, not 
in favor of the few, but of all. The different 
policies and aims of the different chapters 
were made known and wexled into a 
harmonious whole. In these and various 
other ways it has proved itself an apt and 
accurate vehicle for the conveyance of stu- 
dent sentiment, as well as for securing uni- 

form and earnest actions on the part of col- 
lege men. 

Since this body possesses the true repre- 
sentative spirit and has proved its efficiency to 
a greater degree than any other undergradu- 
ate organization, it would seem a very politic 
move to place in its hands the powers nomi- 
nally exercised by our defunct jury. This 
latter body has of late years been rather 
unwieldy and indisposed, in fact not once dur- 
ing the past year did the entire jsmy meet to 
consider questions relating to undergraduate 
conduct. Under these circumstances it would 
seem fitting, unless the college intends to hold 
its students in a state- of tutelage, that our 
jurisdictive rights be revived and placed in the 
hands of a body that is just and active. In 
other words "students should be given the 
largest liberty in the conduct of persona', 
affairs, consistent with the dignity and pur- 
pose of the college." 

in Athletics 

There has been talk among 
some of the men in college 
about a scheme for getting 
more men into ath etics. The scheme as now 
in vogue in some of the New England col- 
leges, is at least worth consideration, and 
appears to be fully worthy of adoption. It is 
for the undergraduate body to compel every 
member of the Freshman Class to go out for 
at least one branch of athletics, and stay out 
for that branch during its whole season. 

Since, even in this year, when we have the 
largest entering class in the history of the col- 
lege, between 85 and 90 per cent, of the men 
here are fraternity men, Bowdoin is unusually 
well situated to carry out such a scheme. 
Each fraternity can see to it that every man in 
its Freshman delegation is out for some 
branch of ath etics, and so pressure may 
easily be brought on over 85 per cent, of the 
Freshman Class. There also might be some 
one upperclassman appointed by each frater- 
nity to see to it that his men got started in the 
ways of the athletic squads, so avoiding 
another common difliculty, that of the unexpe- 
rienced Freshman, who goes to the field a few 
days, does not know what to do, and being 
noticed by no one, gives up athletics without 
even a regular tryout. 

The possibility of the scheme is then evi- 
dent, and the Orient sees only reasons why it 
deserves the hearty backing of every one. 
There will be but few exceptions to the ruling, 
for though there may be many who are not 



physically abe to play football, or who have 
not the ability to play baseball, yet there is 
scarcely a single college 'man who is unable 
to enter into some branch of track athletics. 
And there is practically no one who will deny 
that a CO lege man is not in better condition 
both mentally and physically for an hour's 
daily exercise such as would result from regu- 
lar training for some branch of athletics. 

Rp-' ' this general advantage to the 

_ . -^ which will be of value to every man 
for his whole life, there is another advantage 
which must not be neglected. This is the 
socia'. life of an athletic squad. On an athletic 
squad every man is thrown into more informal 
relations with his college mates, than is possi- 
ble in any other manner, and here he meets 
every man on a basis where faithfulness, fair 
play, and pluck are absolutely the only tests. 

Further, there is no doubt that such a 
movement as the one suggested, will raise 
Bowdoin's athletic record, which is the pride 
of every alumnus and undergraduate. And 
the result of such a condition, where every 
man in co'lege will have personally tried to do 
something for Bowdoin's 'athletic honor, will 
be that there will no longer be the slightest 
cause for worry over Bowdoin spirit in her 
athletic contests. This spirit must inevitably 
spread to all other departments of college life, 
and fulfil! the definition of college spirit in its 
broadest sense. 

From these few points it is seen that it is 
possible to work the scheme at Bowdoin, that 
there is an opportunity in athletics for every 
college man to benefit himself, no matter what 
his ability and strength, that the Freshman by 
this scheme will come to know his class and 
college mates on better and fairer terms, and 
that the scheme will greatly hep in solving 
the question of maintaining always at its 
height an alive Bowdoin spirit. 

This is, of course, a radical movement, but 
it is one that in the minds of the Orient at 
least, is an excellent one. It is a matter which 
certainly merits the consideration of everyone 
in college, and which, if it meets with general 
approval, might well at some time in the near 
future, be referred to the interfraternity coun- 
cil. In regard to this movement, the Orient 
will be glad to welcome and publish any com- 
munications from alumni, faculty, or under- 


Leader Gushing of the Glee Glub and Kane 
of the Mandoline-Guitar Club, issued their 
first call for rehearsals and trials for the musi- 
cal organizations last week. A goodly num- 
ber of candidates reported and the prospects 
are bright for excellent clubs this year. Many 
men from last year's clubs are lost thru gradu- 
ation, but it is particularly encouraging to see 
the large number from the lower classes that 
have reported. Trials for the club are held 
until Thanksgiving, the men being final y 
picked just before the recess. The first con- 
cert will be given in December. The follow- 
ing men have reported for the Glee Club ; Stev-

It is with a good deal of satisfaction that the 
Orient can report a movement towards the 
formation of a college band this fall. Lud- 
wig, '10, called a meeting last Monday of all 
the men in the col ege who are able to play 
any band instrument and men responded to 
the number of seventeen, with the certainty 
that others who were not able to be at this 
meeting will report later. The fellows have 
reported as follows: Cornets: Kane, '09; 
Manter, '09; Taylor, 'oS; Atwood, '10; Swan, 
'11. Clarinets: Hussey, '11 ; Kern, '11. Altos: 
Wing, '10; Hubbard, '10; Pike, '09. Trom- 
bones: Smith, '10; Spurling, '11. Baritone: 
Smith, '08. Drums: Stetson, '09; Matthews, 
'10; Sanborn, '10. Bass: Newman, '10. The 
band should make good with this material, 
and wil- probably be in condition to go to 
Portland to the Tufts game, provided the col- 
lege will raise money to send it. To raise 
this money it will be necessary to pass around 
a subscription paper and it is hoped that the 
fellows will support the band, as best they can. 




Memorial to the Distinguished Abbott 
Family of Maine. 

In the upper part of the tower on the Hbrary 
a new room, to be known as the Abbott Room, 
has been fitted up during the summer. It was 
estabhshed through the efforts of the descend- 
ants of five sons of Bowdoin — Jacob Abbott, 
John S. C. Abbott, Gorham D. Abbott, Charles 
E. Abbott, and Samue' P. Abbott. The two 
Uving sons of Jacob Abbott, Rev. Lyman 
Abbott and Dr. Edward Abbott, have taken 
much interest in this memorial to the Abbotts, 
so long famous throughout New England. 
The room contains a chart showing the line of 
descent of the family, and its connections. 
Around the room are the coats of arms of the 
various branches of the family, together with 
portraits of several of their ancestors. There 
are a number of historical relics, among them 
a sword worn at Bunker Hill and the cane 
which Jacob Abbott, author of the Rollo 
Books, always carried. In book-cases are 
many books and manuscripts of books by mem- 
bers of the Abbott family, inc uding all the 
manuscripts of the Rollo Books. There are 
also the original grants of land in Maine to 
these men who, though from Massachusetts, 
are thus connected with this State. 


At the meeting of the athletic council, held 
Saturday afternoon at Dr. Whittier's office, 
the principal subject of discussion was the 
proposition presented by Bates relative to the 
advisability of holding the contemplated cross- 
country run between the colleges on the same 
day as the Bates, 'ii, and Bowdoin, 'ii, track 
meet. Tliis .would entail debarring Freshmen 
from the run and make the event a contest 
between the three upper classes of the respec- 
tive colleges rather than a varsity affair. 
After considerable discussion, the prevailing 
sentiment of the council was that it would be 
better to have the events come on two separate 
dates and they further felt that it would be 
better not to have any race at all than to hold 
a contest which was not representative of the 
entire student body of both institutions. 

The council further voted to procure cases 
for the numerous trophies in the library. In 
this connection it might be well to add that the 
track manager has corresponded with Bates 
and as that college still feels that they are not 
justified in changing their proposition for the 
cross country run it has been decided not to 
hold that event. Arrangements are now in 
progress fi3r a cross country run with another 

Those present at the meeting were Dr. 
Whittier, Prof. Hutchins, Robinson, "08, 
Atwood, '09, and Colbath, '10. 


Fo' lowing a universal demand on the 
part of the student body, the faculty have 
decided to suspend the regular form of ser- 
vice on Sunday, October 27, and to hold in its 
stead a memorial service. The sermon is to 
be delivered by Professor Henry L. Chapman, 
while Professor Wilmot B. Mitchell will offer 
a prayer. There will also be prepared a spe- 
cial musical service suitable to the occasion.

CLASS OF 1856 

Few, if any, of our alumni living without 
New England, have followed witlj greater 
interest and aff"ection the life of the college in 
the last quarter century than Rev. Dr. James 
Henry Taylor of the Class of 1856 who died 
at Clinton, New York, October 13, 1907, in his 
seventy-ninth year. Prevented by various cir- 
cumstances from attending the two centennial 
celebrations in 1894 and 1902, he sent to the 
former a glowing letter of loyalty and to the 
latter a song in honor of The Thorndike Oak 
about which it was the custom in his day for 
the Senior Class to dance singing Aitld Lang 
Sync immediately after the close of their last 

Dr. Taylor, the son of Edward and Sarah 
(Warren) Taylor, was born at Ballston Spa, 
New York, 3 January, 1829. He was pre- 
pared for col ege at Bloomfield, Maine, under 
Augustus R. Brainard. His course at Bow- 
doin was interrupted by a year spent in teach- 
ing at St. Stephen, N. B. After graduating 
with honors, he entered Union Theological 
Seminary and completed the course in 1859. 



The same year he assumed pastoral charge of 
the First Presbyterian Church in New 
Rochelle, N. Y., where he inaugurated and 
carried through the building of a new stone 
church, but was obliged to resign on account 
of his health in 1862. In October, 1863, he 
was called to the Second Presbyterian Church 
at Orange, N. J-. where he remained five 
years. Having "himself reported for service 
in the army, but being rejected on account of 
physical disability, he was ever an enthusiastic 
partisan of the cause of the North. Whenever 
he heard of a victory, he wou'd mount his 
horse, ride to the church and ring the bell, 
shouting as he proceeded, "Another Union 
victory." From 1868 to 1875 he was pastor 
of the Presbyterian Church at Lake Foust, III, 
and a trustee of the University at that place in 
which he held for one year the chair of Eng- 
lish Literature. In 1876 he was settled at 
Rome, N. Y., where he remained till his retire- 
ment from the work of the ministry in 1902. 
The closing years of his life were spent at 
Clinton, N. Y., with his son, Stephen L. Tay- 
lor, Esn. 

The following interesting clipping appeared 
in the issue of the Chicago Iiitcr-Oceaii for 
October 7, 1907. It re ates to Col. Isaac Wing, 
who gave $50,000 two years ago to perma- 
nently endow the chair of Mathematics at 
Bowdoin : 


Faithful through life to the woman he loved 
as a youth. Col. Isaac Wing, Lincoln, Neb., 
recently deceased, specified in his will that his 
estate of $20,000 go to the daughter of the 
woman who rejected him. 

jMiss Katherine Rittenhouse, a student at 
Northwestern LTniversity, is the one to profit 
by the undying devotion of her mother's for- 
mer suitor, who had passed through life 
unmarried. Back of the dry legal verbiage of 
Col. Wing's last will and testament, which 
bequeaths all he possessed to a girl he had 
never seen, lies a romantic story se dom found, 
save in the lore of the Elizabethan writers, 
when young men sighed when they fell in 
love, when love never died, and when it was 
the greatest thing in all the world. 

Not until the will of Lincoln's old resident 
was opened did those even who knew him best 
discover that hidden amid the somber colors 
of his bache or life were tints of the most pas- 
sionate romances. 

The girl student, who never had heard of or 

seen her unusual benefactor, was advised yes- 
terday of the strange caprice fortune had 
played her.

On June 11 he wandered away from the house 
of a relative whom he was visiting in West 
Boylston, Mass., and though careful search 
was made, his body was not discovered for

BovvDOiN Defeated Colby in Hard Game in 
First of Maine College Series. 

Bowdoin defeated Colby Saturday by the 
score of 5-0 in one of the hardest and fastest 
games in the Wstory of Maine college football. 

Bowdoin went to Waterville with a fighting 
chance to win. Filled with the old Bowdoin 
spirit playing as one man and contesting every 
inch of ground during the entire fifty minutes 
of play, Captain Crowley and his men again 
demonstrated the fact that a Bowdoin team 
is never beaten until the close of a contest. 

Colby men played the game for all that was 
in them ; in fact, they excelled at straight foot- 
ball, but fumbled repeatedly, handled punts 
poorly, and were weak on the forward pass. 

Both teams were severely penalized, Colby 
being the worst offender. 

The touchdown was made in the first eight 
minutes of play on a perfectly executed for- 
ward pass which Wandtke received near the 
goal line, and, unmolested, carried the ball 
behind Colby's goal posts. Newman failed to 
kick the goal. 

In the second half Bowdoin played a safe 
game. Taking advantage of Colby's inability 
to handle punts, Gould continually punted and 
Dwyer was either downed in his tracks or else 
a Bowdoin man secured the ball. 

Several times during this half Colby came 
within our 15-yard line, but each time the line 
either held or else Colby became over eager 
and was penalized. 

For Colby Capt. Sherburne, Dwyer, Goode 
and Trask excelled. 

It would be manifestly unfair to mention 
any Bowdoin man as the star. For the first 
time this season the eleven played as a team, 
not as individuals and to each man belongs an 
equal share of the victory. 

The line-up and summary: 

Bowdoin. Colby.

Not a Man Sholild be Left on the Campus 
Saturday, Everybody Off to Portland! 

To-morrow Bowdoin meets Tufts in Port- 
land. This will be a hard game — ^but Bow- 
doin's prospects are good. With new men in 
the line, and a fast set of backs, the team ought 
to give a good account of itself. 

Tufts has beaten Wesleyan (23-0) and 
Holy Cross (lo-o) this year, tied Vermont, 
and lost to the University of Maine team 
(4-0), with the loss of three men, counted on 
to do much good work for the Medford team. 

The game will be played on the Pine Tree 
grounds, special rates will be secured for all 
the college fellows, a band will accompany the 
team; anrd with clever fellows who play the 
game, Bowdoin men ought to return with 

Up to the present time the officials haven't 
been decided on, but it is probable that Smith 
of Dartmouth will umpire the game.

To-morrow morning at 9.30 a.m. corner of 
McKeen Street. 

As a result of the trials held last Monday 
afternoon, the following men have been picked 
to run on the cross-country team against 
Tufts : 

Colbath, '10. 

Slocum, '10. 

Simmons, '09. 

R. D. Morss, '10. 

Weston, '08. 

A. L. Robinson, "oS, alternates. 

The race is scheduled to come ofif here at 
Brunswick to-morrow (Saturday) morning. 
The course will probably be five miles in 
length and will include the course over which 
the trials were run, which is only four miles 
long. The general direction of the run is 
through the woods to Pleasant Street, thence 
along the river bank and up Standpipe Hill. 
From there the run will make a detour around 
the Golf Club House and so back in a round- 
about way to the starting point at the Theta 
Delta Chi House. This may be changed some- 
what in order to make it the proper length, 
but the run will take place over the ground 
lying northwest of the campus. It is rumored 
that Tufts has a strong team, but nothing more 
definite can be learned about it. The Tufts 
men will spend Friday night here at the dif- 
ferent fraternity houses. The run will come 
early in the forenoon. The most advanta- 
geous places to view the race are out on Pleas- 
ant Street as from there the men can be seen 
in their way across Standpipe Hill and the 
Golf Links. This cross-country running is a 
new and very good feature of track athletics 
here and should be encouraged. We wish the 
team all success. 


For the first time in history the Bowdoin and 
Bates Freshmen have actually held a dual track meet. 
Though our Freshmen were beaten, yet they showed 
that they had trained well and may be looked for to 
furnish material for the 'varsity next spring. Our 
weak point was in the weights where we missed 

some of the men who were absent on the football 
tip to Waterville. The great trouble this year has 
been that no one had faith in the fact that the meet 
would take place. It has been proposed for a num- 
ber of years, but this is the first time it has been

On Sunday afternoon in King's Chapel, 
special services were held in memory of the 
three undergraduates who lost their lives dur- 
ing the past summer. The services were very 
impressive, and will never be forgotten by 
those who attended, both for the occasion and 
the words that were spoken. The Orient 
is very thankful that it is able to give the 
address in full : 

Violin Solo F. E. Kendrie, 1910

Reading, I. Cor. XIII. 

Address P:of. Henry L. Chapman 

Selection — "Lead, Kindly Light" 

Chapel Quartet 

Henry Leland Chapman, LL.D. 

This service, held in affectionate memory of the 
beloved friends and comrades who were taken from 
us during the last vacation, is but an outward expres- 
sion of the tribute which is paid them in our hearts, 
and which is a continuing memorial of feeling, 
rather than of utterance. We try, instinctively, to 
say how much we valued them, and how great is 
our sense of loss, — to put into words our love and 
our grief; — but even in the effort we find that the 
words which we hesitatingly use do not compass our 
emotions, and only partially express our thoughts. 
You have known these class and college and fra- 
ternity mates in a hundred ways that are vivid to 
your recollection, but were too intimate and fleeting 
for recital. They were bound to you by ties so del- 
icate and so strong that they cannot be fully dis- 
closed in speech. Here, where they were accus- 
tomed to meet with you in the daily service of wor- 
ship, you gather now to honor their memory under 
an impulse more profound than any form of lan- 
guage can adequately describe. It must be so in 
any experience of loss and sorrow which is sincere 
enough to crave e-xpression. 

When Alfred Tennyson lost suddenly from his 
side a college friend who was endeared to him by 
the intimate converse and companionship of academic 
life, he tried to give some utterance to his sorrow. 
But, master of language as he was, and of its deeper 
and subtler meanings, he found it inadequate to his 
need, and he broke off for a moment, when he was 
but well begun, with the exclamation, — 

"I sometimes hold it half a sin 
To put in words the grief I feel. 
For words, like Nature, half reveal, 
And half conceal the soul within." 
Nevertheless, it was a satisfaction to him, and half 
a comfort to speak of his friend; to recall their 
hours of congenial intercourse in the club, the dor- 
mitory, and the college walk, to remember the win- 
ning qualities of his heart and speech, and the man- 
liness and nobility of his ideals ; to gather some con- 

solation from the thought that 'tis "better to have 
loved and lost, than never to have loved at all;" to 
confirm his faith in Providence and immortality with 
the assurance, — 

"O, yet we trust that, somehow, good 
Will be the final goal of ill ; 

* * * * 
That not one life shall be destroyed, 
Or cast as rubbish to the void. 
When God hath made the pile complete." 

You, likewise, not only dwell with gratitude upon 
the memory of past associations, but you desire to 
give some token to each other, and to those outside 
the college, of the affectionate esteem in which these 
young men were held while they were still with you, 
and which you do not cease to cherish for their 
memories when they are no longer with you. And 
it is, surely, just and grateful to bear public witness 
to the genuineness of their characters ; to the up- 
; ightness of their lives ; to the manliness of their 
conduct ; to their appreciation and support of what- 
ever was honorable and right ; to their conscien- 
tious fidelity to the trusts confided to them ; to their 
loyalty and helpfulness in the various relations in 
which they stood to college and class and fraternity. 

And that this may not seem to be merely my own 
estimate of them, I wish to add some extracts from 
the memorials of their respective classes, that the 
testimony of those who were nearest to them in col- 
lege life, and most familiar with their characteristic 
traits, may form a part of this public tribute. 
Through a committee chosen to speak for them the 
classmates of Richard Almy Lee and John Frank- 
lin Morrison speak thus of them : "Both were hearty, 
wholesome college fellows, men who had endeared 
themselves to us by the close ties of three years of 
intimate connection. Both were fellows whose moral 
life and personal characteristics were above reproach, 
leaders in the class, men who were willing always 
[c work for the college and for the class. In what- 
ever was done in college that aimed for the right, 
they could be depended upon to render assistance. 
In the front rank in pleasure and labor, yet it is not 
for what they did that we cherish their memory, but 
for what they were. To those who knew them as 
we classmates knew them, there remains the conso- 
lation that the whole course of their lives was pure 
and noble in every way." 

And those who speak as the representatives of the 
classmates of Harry Joseph Dugan say of him : "He 
was a young man of noble qualities, and the life 
cut short was one of great promise. His manly 
traits, his studious tastes, his upright character, and 
his social nature endeared him to us who were 
closely associated with him as classmates during the 
past year, and will long be cherished in our hearts. 
His death comes to us all with a sense of personal 

We may well mourn the loss, and cherish the 
memory of college men of whom these things can be 
said by those who knew them in the intimacy of 
class fellowship. The college was proud to count 
them in its enrolled membership, and it is not less 
proud to remember their generous devotion to it, 
that they loved its history and associations, that they 
were jealous of its honor and good name, that they 
endeavored in all ways that were open to them to

An item in tine Orient 
Celebrations tliis weelc mentions the 

fact that there was '"but 
very Httle celebration after the Colby game on 
Saturday." Are Bowdoin students forgetting 
the art of celebrating? If we look back on the 
past few years it seems as if there had been 
but very few of the real old-time celebrations 
of late. In days gone by a celebration of any 
important athletic achievement was a well- 
planned and a notable event. A bonfire was 
always built in front of the chapel, a parade 
was formed, headed by a band, and the pro- 
cession marched around to the various profes- 
sors, who are always only too glad to speak 
on such occasions, and a general jollification 
resulted. But we have had not a decent cele- 
bration of this kind in years. It certainly is 
to be regretted if the moving of the centre of 
college hfe from campus to fraternity house 
has brought forth such a condition. Now the 
Orient does not believe that a celebration 
requires any great display of "college spirit." 

Hackneyed as this term is, still in its truer 
sense college spirit is never displayed by hal- 
looing and shouting. But hallooing and shout- 
ing are college pleasures, which the student 
body need never feel ashamed to display in a 
worthy cause. Last spring when our base- 
ball team made an unequaled record on the 
diamond, there was not a decent jollification 
during the whole spring. Now we do not 
believe in celebrating every minor victory that 
may fall to our lot, but the students are cer- 
tainly becoming too dignified if they are for- 
getting the art of displaying pleasure when 
something notable is done. If, as the year 
past, something worthy does fall to our lot, 
let's not be austere, but all get out and have a 
good time to show our appreciation of it ! 

Bowdoin has been and is 
Sectional Clubs still strong in many depart- 
ments. In the social life 
of her undergraduates, she has up to this year 
enjoyed almost unprecedented success through 
her sectional clubs. This year offers, to these 
clubs, unusual opportunities. For the estab- 
lished clubs it offers possibilities for further 
expansion and to those men who are unat- 
tached, in many cases, the chance is offered 
for consolidation with men from their locality 
and state. The Massachusetts Club can thrive 
under the addition of eighteen new men and it 
is to be noted with pleasure and at the same 
time with the hope that something will come 
of it that there are now nine men in college 
from the state of New Hampshire, and five 
men from the state of New York. To all 
these mentioned and many not mentioned, the 
Orient can say but one word : organize. 
Organize the sectional clubs as these clubs fos- 
ter the spirit of fellowship which Bowdoin, 
which every college holds as an ideal well 
worth attaining. The rumor is current that 
the students from York County contemplate 
the formation of a club. To these men the 
Orient can offer nothing but the most cor- 
dial congratulation at this step and along with 
the right hand of congratulation the Orient 
urges these men to effect their formation with- 
out delay that others, less decided, may emu- 
late the example thus set. Above all let those 
men who grow faint-hearted at the prospect 
of a club with only five or six members, 
remember that number is not the only requis- 
ite nor yet is it to be reckoned the prime object 
of a club. Fellowship based on an intimate 



acquaintance is what a club holds in store for 
its men. Organize in spite of small numbers 
and as Bowdoin grows numbers will come to 
swell the ranks.

promote its interests, and to make it, so far as their 
example could help, a seat, at once, of learning, of 
honorable activity, and of Christian influence. It is 
significant that Morrison and Lee had been chosen 
president and vice-president of the Christian Asso- 
ciation of the college, an association that stands for 
the ideals of brotherly kindness, of mutual helpful- 
ness, and of right living here in college. 

It is not permissible for me to speak at this time 
of the more sacred ties of family and home which 
have been severed, futher than to say that the 
remembrance of them adds to the burden of our 
own sorrow, and fills us with a sense of deep, if 
unuttered, sympathy for the hearts and the homes so 
darkly shadowed. 

But to those homes, and to the college, remains 
the comforting thought that these yovmg men, in 
whom both alike were interested, have left behind 
them a clear : ecord, and a fragrant memory, They 
have left behind them the honorable esteem, and the 
unfeigned love of those with whom they lived in 
the intimate joys of home life, and in the scarcely 
less intimate associations of college life. They have 
emphasized anew for us the truth that the sure 
way to win the confidence and affection of our fel- 
low-men is by a straightforward and manly adher- 
ence to our convictions of right, and by an unob- 
trusive devotion to the things that are honest, and 
true, and pure, and lovely, and of good repo t. 

They have, also, exemplified for us the truth, 
equally important, that a brief life is long enough in 
which to show the quality and worth of character, 
and to earn the reward of the servant who, having 
been faithful in a few things, is bidden to enter 
into the joy of his Lord. 

These truths are the shining lessons of ou- afflic- 
tion, which we may carry with us, to mitigate our 
grief, and haply to guide us in the way we have, 
ourselves, to walk.

Quite a number of men went up to Lewiston with 
the Freshman Track Team. When they arrived 
back at the city the results of the first half of the 
Colby game had just arrived. Dr. Whittle; was the 
first to see on the bulletin, "First half — Bowdoin 5, 
Colby o." He at once exclaimed that his prophecy 
at the mass-meeting the night befo/e had come true. 

"At the annual meeting of the Connecticut Modern 
Language Association at Hartford, Nov. 9, Prof. 
R. J. Ham of Trinity, will give an address at the 
mo ning session." Bowdoin friends of Professor 
Ham will be glad to learn that he has been so early 
honored in his new position. 

There is a noticeable lack of guitar players in col- 
lege. Thus a strong incentive is offeed to enter- 
prising individuals to take lessons and make a strong 
bid for the mandolin club. If they make this club, 
they will not only have many pleasant times them- 
selves but they will also be of service to the college 
by adding strength to the musical clubs. 

At the annual match of the New England Inter- 
Collegiate Golf Association, held at Woburn, Mas- 
sachusetts, on Wednesday, October 16, the team 
match was won by Williams- Three colleges were 
represented in the tournament, Williams, Dartmouth 
and Technology. This is the third consecutive time 
that Williams has won the golf trophy. H. W. 
Stucklen, of Dartmouth, won the individual match. 
Bowdoin was not represented, although the college 
retains membership in the association. 

It should be 'stated for the benefit of the students 
that the Orient arrives in Brunswick, Friday after- 
noons, and that they may be secured at the post 
office Friday afternoon or evening. It sometimes 
happens that they are not delivered until Saturday, 
but they can always be secured on Friday if they are 
asked for at the post office. When evening mail is 
given after supper at the post office, only first-class 
matter is handed out, but the Orients can always 
be secured by asking for them. 

"In contrast to the neat green caps which the 
Chicago Freshmen are wearing is the straw hat 
which the Bowdoin Freshmen are required to wear 
wherever they go." — Daily Maroon, University of 
Chicago. As a fact, not a straw hat can be seen 
now, all the members of 191 1 having discontinued 
weaing them since initiation. It would probably be 
better here at Bowdoin if instead of some outland- 
ish headgear being prescribed each year for the 
entering class, which is worn for about a week, 
some neat cap was provided which shovild be worn 
all the year. But then, this is the custom we have, 
and it is a hard thing to change established practice ! 

ing its origin, growth, and accomplishments. 
In speaking of the kind of men wanted in the 
foreign mission service, Mr. Straub said none 
but college graduates were acceptable ; men of 
sterling characters, high ptirposes, and firm 

As for the field of service, there is none 
greater in the world. The work is chiefly 
along religious and educational lines. The 
old-time idea that the foreign missionary must 
fight his way and be put to a thousand and one 
exposures is speedly being lost sight of and in 
the place of that idea men are learning that 
the dangers are not as stupendous as have 
been imagined and that there is a great will- 
ingness and eagerness on the part of the 
heathen to receive whatever of enlightenrtient 
the Christian nations of the world can bring 
him. Mr. Straub suggested that an element 
of "the square deal" ought to enter into our 
relations with those people to whom God is 


College Band Holds Organization Re- 
hearsal — New Plans for Its Perma- 
nency. ' 

Leader Kane has thrown himself into the 
work of developing and directing the proposed 
band with praiseworthy energy and it shopld 
be noted that he is being supported in a grat- 
ifying manner. The plans of the band, at 
present, seem concentrated about the single 
idea of making a creditable showing at the 
remainder of the games, but during the winter 
they propose to continue practicing systemat- 
ically so that by spring they may prove efl:ective 
attraction at the baseball games and track 
meet. There is another end to be accomplished 
by this continued winter practice than that of 
temporary perfection. It is hoped that with 
the nucleus remaining in college of this year's 
band that interest in a college band may be 
re-awakened and that next year a band can be 
developed which will surpass any band Bow- 
doin has ever had. 


Last Thursday evening, Mr. A. W. Straub 
spoke to the Christian Association on "Stu- 
dent Volunteer Movement for Foreign Mis- 
sions." First Mr. Straub gave a short his- 
tory of the student volunteer movement, stat- 


The stand which the Orient takes in regard to the 
plans for Freshmen having some branch of athletics 
compulsory, is meeting with much favor. The col- 
lege will be the gaine , but by far the greatest bene- 
fit falls on the student himself. The exercise result- 

J 50 


ing from some regular athletic work would greatly 
aid the general condition of the health. 

Then there is another point from which the Fresh- 
man naturally looks. He eyes with admiration the 
big "B" and longs to have the honor of wearing one. 
Incessant practice will develop some of the hitherto 
hidden p ovvess in various branches and the student 
will be as much surprised as any one to find out 
what he can do. At any rate, everyone should try 
to do something for the college until it is proven 
conclusively that he is unable to accomplish anything 
at all in athletics. 



The Class of 1875 Prize in American His- 
tory will be awarded this year for the best 
essay on one of the following subjects: 

1. The Origin and History of Shay's 

2. The New England Emigrant Aid 

3. The policy of William Pitt Fessenden 
during Reconstruction. 

Essays should contain not less than fifteen, 
nor more than twenty-five thousand words. 
All essays must be submitted in typewritten 
form to Professor Allen Johnson not later 
than !May i, 1908. The competition is open 
to Seniors and Juniors. Students who intend 
to compete are advised to consult with Profes- 
sor Johnson before beginning work. 

The Bennett Prize will be awarded this year 
for the best essay on "The Working of the 
Committee System in the Legislature of 
Maine." Essays should contain not less than 
five, nor more than ten thousand words. All 
essays must be submitted to Professor Allen 
Johnson not later than May i, 1908. The 
competition is open to Seniors and Juniors.

CLx\SS OF 1831 
Mrs. Lucy A. Huston, widow of Professor 
Joseph Tyler Huston of this class, died Octo- 
ber 20, 1907, at Bath, at the advanced age of 
ninety-two years. She had been all her life 
connected with the educational and philan- 
thropical institutions of her native city. 

CLASS OF 1850 
The many friends of Rev. T. S. Perry who 
has been ill for over a year, will regret to learn 
that he still remains incapacitated for the work 
to which he has given so many years of his 
active life. He is now residing at Harrison, 

Jesse Appleton Melcher, who received the 
honorary degree of Master of Arts from Bow- 
doin over half a century ago, died at Redwood 
City, California, October 9, 1907, after a long 
illness at the age of eighty-four. Mr. Melcher 
belonged to a Brunswick family noted in tlie 
last century for their skill as carpenters and 



builders as the woodwork of the College 
Chapel still testifies. It was while practicing 
his trade of carpentry that Mr. Melcher 
secured means to fit himself as a teacher, a 
calling that he followed with success for sev- 
eral years in the Southern States. In 1872 he 
removed to California and became an insur- 
ance agent. In 1884 he was chosen a member 
of the Board of Education of San Francisco 
and served with distinction. He was a devout 
Christian and for many years a deacon in one 
of the city churches. 

CLASS OF 1900 

Joseph C. Pearson arrived in Brunswick, 
October 22, for a visit to his parents, Mr. and 
Mrs. S. W. Pearson. Mr. Pearson has been 
cruising a year and a half in the Pacific in con- 
nection with the scientific expedition sent out 
by the Carnegie Institute of Washington, D. 
C, to make a magnetic survey of that ocean. 
In August he left the Yacht Galilee at Alaska 
and went down the Yukon River as far as 
Dawson City to make magnetic observations. 
He then went through British Columbia, east 
to the Selkirk range of mountains and then up 
to Lake Winnipeg. This gave him a fine trip 
over a wild and interesting country. 

Albro L. Burnell has been appointed clerk 
in the United States consulate at Barranguilla, 
U. S. of Colombia. 

CLASS OF 1901 
Professor Henry D. Evans of the State 
laboratory of hygiene, has begun the work of 
analyzing all the public water supplies of the 
State. Hereafter this examination is to be 
conducted regularly four times a year. 

CLASS OF 1902 
Edward E. Carter was married, 22 October 
1907, to Miss Helen L., daughter of Mr. Geo. 
W. Johnson of Bath, Me. The bride is a grad- 
uate of the Bath High School and a member of 
the Class of 1903 at Mt. Holyoke College. 
Since giving up his instructorship in forestry 
at Harvard, Mr. Carter has been in the employ- 
ment of the United States as forest assistant in 
the Department of Agriculture. The newly 
married couple will spend the winter in Wash- 
ington, D. C. 

CLASS OF 1905

BowDOiN Loses in Hard Game at Portland. 

Tufts defeated Bowdoin at Portland, Sat- 
urday, by a score of 19 to 2. The game was 
far closer and more interesting than the score 
would indicate. 

Gould kicked off to Wandtke who advanced 
the ball from the 15 to the 30-yard line. 
Newman and Lee made a yard each ; then 
Gould punted to Tufts' 38-yard line. Tufts 
fumbled but recovered the ball several yards 
nearer their goal. A forward pass was tried 
unsuccessfully; and Tufts was penalized 15 
yards. Green punted to Gould 25 yards 
down the field. 

Newman gained a yard; on the next play, 
however, Bowdoin was penalized 15 yards. 
Commins went through left tackle for 3 yards 
and Crowley made i on the forward pass. 
Gould then essayed a field goal, the ball fall- 
ing short by about a yard. 

Green ran the kick back 20 yards. Sheedy 
made 4; then 40 on a neatly executed trick 

On the next play Tufts fumbled, but recov- 
ered the ball. Wallace was thrown for a 
loss. Green then punted to Phipps on Bow- 
doin's 12-yard line. 

Tufts held and Gould punted to Green who 
ran the ball back 15 yards. The ball was now 
on Bowdoin's 28-yard line. . Wallace failed 
to gain; the forward pass gave Tufts 15 
yards; Hooper made 3. Two plays brought 
the ball within a yard of Bowdoin's goal and 
Hooper was pushed over for a touchdown. 
Green missed an easy goal. 

Gould dubbed a kick along the ground 
which Lee secured on Tufts' 3S-yard line. A 
poorly executed forward pass cost Bowdoin 
15 yards. Phipps made 10; Bowdoin fum- 
bled on the next play and Tufts received the 
ball, rushed it to Bowdoin's 30-yard line, 
where Green dropped a pretty goal. 

Receiving the ball on the kick off Bowdoin 
rushed it up the field to the 7-yard line where 
Green intercepting a forward pass was 
dragged behind his own goal for a safety. 

Tufts secured one touchdown and a goal 
from the field in each half. 

Tufts excelled in trick plays, continually 
making them to good advantage. Bowdoin 
was stronger in straight line bucking. Sev- 
eral times during the game the team was 
within striking distance of Tufts' goal, only 
to be penalized or to lose the ball through 
poor headwork. 

Captain Green of Tufts was the individual 
star of the game. He used exceptionally good 
judgment in running his team and outpunted 
either Gould or Newman. Plis goal from the 
field in the second half was the feature of the 

For Bowdoin Phipps proved to be the best 
ground gainer, frequently making from 10 to 
20 yards. Haley at guard was a tower of 
strength, continually breaking through and 
rushing the Tufts runner for a loss.

The Great Game of the Year Tomorrow ! — Everybody 
Up to Lewiston ! 

Next Saturday at Garcelon Field, Lewis- 
ton, Bowdoin meets Bates in what promises 
to be one of the most stubbornly fought con- 
tests in the intercollegiate football series. 
Bates will be no easy opponent, having scored 
on Harvard, beaten New Hampshire State 

J 54 


and held Exeter and Colby to low scores. 
Added to this good showing Captain Schu- 
macher, who has been ill for the past few 
weeks, will be back in his old place at tackle. 
But Bowdoin supporters will go to the Spin- 
dle City full of confidence, with a good team, 
with a week's hard and consistent practice 
behind them, to bring back a victory. It is 
quite probable that the old Exeter back, King, 
and Manter, will be seen in Bowdoin togs. 

If Bowdoin wins this game, and at the 
same time if Maine should beat Colb}' — 
Bowdoin will have a clear field for the cham- 
pionship, the best that Maine could do would 
be to tie with Bowdoin, by winning the game 
at Brunswick the coming Saturday. If Colby 
wins tho' — Bowdoin will have to beat Maine 
on the i6th to win the championship. 

The probable line-up : 

Bowdoin. Bates.

Tufts, 27; Bowdoin, 28 — Colbath, of Bow- 
doin, Comes in First. 

Bowdoin was defeated by Tufts last Sat- 
urday morning in the first cross-country run 
she has ever held with another college. The 
race was a success and one will be held every 
year in the future, if possible. The result of 
this race was Tufts 27, Bowdoin 28. The 
course was four and a half miles in length 
and lay as follows : Start at Theta Dlta Chi 
House, go out McKeen Street, turn to right, 
down across the railroad to Pleasant Street, 
along east and north sides of cemetery, cross 
the brook near the river, go straight up over 
Standpipe Hill to the River Road, along this 
for a hundred yards, then turn sharp west 
through an orchard, then across the golf 
links to a side road, down this to Pleasant 
street, and so home, the last half-mile being 
the same as the first. When the course was 
laid out the brook was so narrow that it could 
be jumped, but after the rains had raised it a 
scow had to be moored across it. 

The runners for the two colleges were : 

Tufts. Bowdoin. 

Marshall, 2 I, Colbath 

Morrison, 4 3, Sloman 

Williams, 5 7, Morss 

Powers, 6 8, Simmons 

Lennon, 10 9, Weston 

Total, 3,7- Total, 28. 

At the end of the first mile the Tufts men 
were bunched in the lead with the Bowdoin 
runners in a group close behind. This 
arrangement was kept practically the same 
during the first three miles. When the men 
reached Pleasant Street, the second time they 
began to increase their speed and string out 
more. At the beginning of the last half-mile 
they were in two groups a hundred yards 
apart. In the first one were Marshall, Mor- 
rison, Colbath, Slocum and Williams, in the 
second. Powers, Morss, Weston, Simmons, 

Colbath won easily by about twenty yards. 
The others finished in this order: Marshall, 
Slocum, Morrison, Williams, Powers, Morss, 
Simmons, Weston, Lennon. The time was 31 
minutes, 26 and 2-5 seconds. 

The judges at the finish were Col. H. A. 
Wing of Lewiston, Coach O'Donnell of 
Bates, Dr. Whittier of Bowdoin, Stevens of 
Tufts, Prof. Hutchins, and S. B. Furbish. 


Prospects of Another Race — Bates Seems 
Desirous to Run 

"There has been much interest in cross 
country running here this fall. Clifford, '08, 
has been elected captain of the team. After 
trying to arrange a dual meet with Bowdoin, 
that college has at last suceeded in finding a 
successful excuse and has evaded a meet. We 
were ready to run under any suitable condi- 
tions, but the Brunswick athletes were hard 
to please." — Bates Student. 

The above appeared in the current issue of 
the Bates Student. The Orient has no desire 
to make comment which would stir up any 
feeling between the two institutions. If Bates 
felt the Orient was using that college 
unjustly in its news comment of two weeks 
ago, we offer apology to their feelings. The 
Orient is coming to be distinctly a news- 
paper and we stated the news exactly as the 
facts were. However, in view of the fact 
that the Student appears to believe that it was 
Bowdoin who was anxious to avoid running 



a race, and that there may be no wrong 
impression in regard to this, the Orient 
called the attention of the Bowdoin Track 
Association to the comment and efforts are 
now being made to arrange for a cross 
country run between the two colleges. We 
most sincerely hope that such a race can be 
arranged. Bowdoin is willing to agree to 
any terms whatsoever, and there is plenty of 
time to arrange for a contest. We at Bow- 
doin have not the slightest ill feeling towards 
Bates and most sincerely hope that a cross- 
country can be run. Much better feeling 
has grown up between the two colleges in the 
past few years and we most sincerely hope 
that the mutual relations will continue to be 
the best. At present the contest is not 
decided. Bowdoin should stand a good 
chance, with the experience gained in the 
former race. As it is evident that Bowdoin 
has no desire to avoid any contest, we cer- 
tainly believe that Bates will be good enough 
sportsmen to accept our offer. 


There seems to be a good outlook for the 
Musical Clubs this year. There is a lot of 
good new material in the Freshman Class and 
these new men are turning out well for the 
clubs. The Glee Club is to hold rehearsals 
every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at five 
o'clock, and the work of thinning out the men 
will soon begin, so as to bring down the num- 
ber from the present forty to the twenty or 
less who are to be taken on the trips. Noth- 
ing definite is announced about the trips to 
be made, but there is some talk of holding 
a joint concert with the Dartmouth Musical 
Clubs in Portland some time during January. 


The Delta Upsilon Fraternity held its 
annual convention Oct. 17th and i8th with 
the Minnesota Chapter at the West Hotel, 
Minneapolis, Minn. The President of the 
Convention was W. B. Chamberlain, a Mich- 
igan alumnus, and the afternoon of the first 
day was spent at the President's summer 
home at Lake Winnetonka, with a trip 
around the lake on a chartered steamer. On 
the second day the business of the convention 
was disposed of and in the evening came the 
national banquet, which was the crowning 
event of the convention. Speeches were heard 
from President W. B. Chamberlain, Chan- 
cellor E. Benjamin Andrews of the Univer- 
sity of Nebraska, Prof. Paul S. Reinsch of 
the University of Wisconsin, and Prof. E. 
McDermott of the University of Minnesota. 

The trip to Minneapolis was interesting. 
The delegates from the East traveled by spe- 
cial car from Boston as far as Chicago and 
from there on by special train. The dele- 
gates from the Bowdoin Chapter were Edgar 
F. Sewall, '09, and Percy G. Bishop, '09. 


The first rehearsal of the Orchestra was 
held Tuesday evening in the Y. M. C. A. 
Rooms. There was a good number of fel- 
lows out and the prospects for a prosperous 
season seem good. The rehearsals will not 
be extremely long and will not come 
oftener than once or twice a week. 
This is a good way to practice, and every- 
body who is interested in music should spend 
at least one or two hours a week for prac- 
tice. If the scheme materializes trips will be 
planned and there will be good fun for all. 


About twenty-five students met with Rev. 
Herbert A. Jump last Monday evening in the 
Y. M. C. A. rooms and laid out the plan of 
Bible Study for the year. 

It is planned to hold about fifteen meetings, 
extending from the present time to the middle 
of March, during which time the Christian 
Bible will be studied as comprehensively as 
possible. The course is to consist of lectures, 
readings and discussions. The topics for 
immediate study are : "The King James Bible, 
its Aim and its Humanity," "Its Ancestors 
and its Posterity," "The Bible Story of the 
Beginning," "Aims and Methods of Bible 

These topics are to be followed by a study 
of Hebrew History, Poetry, Prophecy, etc., 
and then the rest of the year is devoted to 
work in the New Testament. 

The course promises to be of an informal 
nature and all men interested are urged to 
come, for a knowledge of the Christian Bible 
forms an esssential part of every liberal edu-

Echoes from the 

Tufts Game 

The Orient wishes to 
congratulate the college 

upon the college spirit 
shown at the Tufts game, Saturday. Dur- 
ing the last part of the game in the face of 
certain defeat, two hundred and fifty Bow- 
doin men shouted the name of Bowdoin out 
over the field as it had never been shouted at 
any other stage of the game. After the teams 
had left the field every man remained in his 
seat and for twenty minutes cheered the play- 
ers, the team, the faculty, and the college. 
After this the whole Bowdoin aggregation 
led by the band marched to Monument 
Square where again the name of Bowdoin 
was made to resound. It was the best dis- 
play of spirit that we have had for a num- 
ber of years and should be encouraged. 

Another noticeable feature of the day at 
Portland was the absence of the "yagging 
spirit." Throughout the day the best feeling 
prevailed between the two rival colleges who 
practically owned the city. Bowdoin and 

Tufts most effectively showed that two large 
groups of college fellows would attend an 
athletic contest without any but the best of 
spirit. The Orient is particularly pleased at 
the high expressions of praise that the Port- 
land papers printed in regard to the conduct 
of the large crowd of Bowdoin men in the 
city. These are things which help the col- 
lege more than we can imagine. Lively, 
enthusiastic, and never-say-die spirit through- 
out the game and gentlemanly character 
about the city are characteristics that the true 
college man should never forget. Remem- 
bering ideals such as these does more good 
for the college than any other factor. 

The traditions there are 
1911 Class Colors at Bowdoin, the Orient 

looks upon as the duty of 
every Bowdoin man to uphold. The three 
upperclasses, we trust, need no stimulus to 
their zeal as supporters of those things which 
are distinctly Bowdoin. So, assuming and 
feeling confident of the loyalty of the upper- 
classes, we address ourselves in this case to 
the Freshman Class. It has been the custom, 
it might almost be called a tradition, since it 
has been the heredity of generations, for the 
incoming class to adopt the colors of the out- 
going class. That is to say, the class colors 
of 1907 were Red and White and the Orient, 
which in matters of this kind always repre- 
sents college sentiment, hopes that at tl-reir 
next meeting the Class of 191 1 will show its 
conservativeness in maintaining college cus- 
toms by voting to adopt as their class colors, 
Red and White. 

There is one matter which 
Class Numerals the Athletic Association 

should attend to at its 
next meeting. When the present Association 
rules in regard to the wearing of class numer- 
als were formed no provision was made for 
granting numerals to members of class teams 
which competed with class teams of other 
institutions. These rules were adopted when 
Bowdoin did not hold regular class meets 
with any other college. Now that a meet has 
been held with Bates some rule should be 
adopted. As it now stands, Bowdoin Fresh- 
men who won points in the track meet with 
Bates cannot rightfully wear numerals. The 
Orient would recommend that the Athletic 
Association at a coming mass-meeting attend 



to this at once and award numerals to those 
men who won first or second place. As the 
Athletic Association governs the matter of 
the wearing of class numerals, its rules 
should be made comprehensive and should 
be enforced. 


The cast of "Halfback Sandy" is rehears- 
ing regularly twice a week now, Monday and 
Thursday evening. Good progress is being 
made under the coaching of Miss Curtis and 
the fellows seem to be showing good interest 
in the work. The first two acts have been 
rehearsed several times and the third is to be 
taken up soon. The play is to be given in 
three places in the State, besides Brunswick, 
and there is some talk of a Masachusetts trip. 


As was stated in the Commencement 
Orient, owing to a fatal accident to the man- 
agers of two athletic organizations, it was 
impossible to secure all the reports at that time. 
The reports, having but just come to our atten- 
tion, are printed in this issue. Together with 
the baseball report is shown a brief compari- 
son of the season with thatof 1906. The Season 
Ticket idea in baseball piroved to be a marked 
failure, causing considerable loss. The effect 
of the weather was of marked importance in 
the attendance. The cancelling of one of the 
Dartmouth games by the council also made a 
distinct loss. The Track Association shows 
slight deficit. These deficits and the conse- 
quent falling off of subscriptions in all 
branches of athletics are serious food for 
thought. It shows in plain figures how Bow- 
doin students are refusing to pay for their 
own athletics.

Owing to the deficit of this season, the man- 
agement considers it only fair to itself to sub- 
mit the following items of comparison between the 
various items of expense during the 1906 and 1907 
seasons, that it may be shown that the deficit of 
1907 is not due to excessive bills.

[Allowing 3-5 of season tickets as subscriptions 
the figures will be $408.40.] 

[The unpaid subscriptions were greater in 1906 
than 1907 ; $154.50 uncollected in '06 ; $129.00 in '07. 
So reduction here not due to lack of collection.]

From these figures of corresponding games, it is 
seen how much less the attendance was in 1907 than 
in 1906 — due to the extreme coldness of the 
weather. Also, two games were cancelled in 1907 — 
Bates and Tufts — with much expense. 

The cancelling of one of Dartmouth games by 
Athletic Council cost $60.

There have been many inquiries as to whether 
the Class of 1910 will hold the annual Sophomore 
Hop this year. Last year the hop was held in 
Memorial Hall, the evening of November twenty- 
third, which is just before the Thanksgiving recess. 
It is hoped that the members of the class will 
talk the hop over, and that definite action will be 
taken on it at a class meeting, called in the near 

— 1910.

It is hoped that a large Bowdoin banner, similar

in evidence to-morrow at the Bates game. 

The Orient takes pleasure in announcing the 
unanimous election of Mr. Joseph M. Boyce, 1908, 
of Portland, to the editorial board of the paper. 

The band made a very creditable showing at 
the game in Portland and much credit is due the 
leader, manager and the student body who have 
worked so hard to make it a success. 

The class and fraternity resolutions on the loss 
of the Bowdoin undergraduates pvinted in the first 
issue of the Orient this fall, were reprinted last 
week in .the Medford, Mass., Mirror. 

The Orient has received a copy of the pamphlet 
by Edward Stanwood, '61, editor of the Youth's 
Companion, on "The Separation of Maine from 
Massachusetts," for which we acknowledge our 

Prof. Hastings and Div. A of the class in sur- 
veying won cigars from a farmer in Topsham a '■ 
short time ago. There was a wager over the area 
of a piece of land and Prof. Hastings calculated 
nearer than the owner of the land. 

In the current issue of the Brunszi'ick Record is 
a report from H. D. Evans, director of the State 
Laboratory of Hygiene at Augusta, in which he 
states that the Brunswick water system is of excep- 
tional purity as shown by a recent analysis. The 
water system is from driven wells wholly. 



The Portland Telegram of last Sunday spoke of 
the orderly conduct of the Bowdoin students in 
Portland and of the deference they showed by lift- 
ing their hats while a funeral was passing. 

The Freshmen have a good chance to make their 
numerals by playing on their class team in the 
Freshman-Sophomore game which will probably 
take place just before the Thanksgiving recess. 

Bates and Maine played a hard-fought game 
which resulted in a tie last Saturday, the score 
being 6 to 6. This practically puts Bates out of 
the championship series, but gives Maine a chance 
to tie with Bowdoin or Colby. 

The time-honored celebration of Purification 
Night took place last Monday evening. The Fresh- 
men were compelled to do a series of stunts and 
then were given the water cure, the scene of oper- 
ations being in front of the chapel. 

King, the famous Exeter halfback who played on 
the team that defeated Andover four years ago and 
who played with Hogan, a Yale star of two years 
ago, and Tad Jones and Cooney, two Yale stars 
at present, has entered Bowdoin Medical College 
and will probably make the team this year. 

Dr. W. E. Sargent, '78, principal of Hebron Acad- 
emy, delivered an interesting address on "Endur- 
ance," before the Christian Association last evening. 
Dr. Sargent was followed by Mr. Clayton S. Cooper, 
international secretary for Bible Study who kindly 
consented to stop off at Brunswick while on his 
way from New York to a convention in Canada. 

Themes 29, 32, 34, 36, 40, 41, 43, 46, 52, 54, 59, 64, 
67, 6g, 72, have been cancelled from the list in Eng- 
lish III and outside reading will be substituted for 
them. Owing to the large size of the class. Prof. 
Foster has been unable to give proper individual 
attention. This change he had made that he may 
have more time to devote to the needs of the sep- 
arate men. 

One of the Tufts students, in his enthusiasm for 
his Alma Mater, in Portland, Saturday, inscribed 
her name on some of Portland's business blocks. 
He was only saved from arrest by the entreaties of 
his fellow-students and by his agreement to erase 
all the chalk marks. A large and interested crowd 
of spectators overlooked the operation which was 
superintended by a squad of police, much to the 
chagrin of the Tufts enthusiast. 

The contest for positions on the Orient board 
promises to be very spirited this year. Already a 
considerable number of Freshmen have commenced 
work, besides four men f/om 1910. The Freshmen 
are showing the right spirit. There are a number of 
vacancies to be filled and there is still opportunity 
for men to enter the competition. After our next 
issue, new comnetitors cannot enter, so any who 
have delayed commencing work, should begin at 

The Ibis met for organization last week and will 
hold its first regular meeting on next Monday 
evening at the New Meadows Inn. An interesting 
course of speakers is planned for the year and the 
club will give at least one jubilee lecture. The

BowDoiN Wins Second Game in JMaine 
Intercollegiate Series in Hard- 
Fought Contest at Lewiston 

Bowdoin narrowly defeated Bates on Gar- 
celon Field, Saturday, by the close score of 
six to five. 

The game which was hard fought through- 
out was one of the roughest games in the his- 
tory of Maine college football. Bates was 
the worst offender in this respect, both Hull 
and Keaney were put out of the game on 
account of rough tactics. 

The feature of the game was a spectacular 
run by Files who intercepted a forward 
pass by Schumacher and raced ninety yards 
down the field before he was downed. 

Phipps played a star game for Bowdoin, as 
did Newman, Commins, Haley and Captain 

Captain Schumacher excelled for Bates. 
Fie was the only man able to stop Bowdoin's 
backs, he outpunted Newman, and was in 
every play. - 

Out of respect for the late Professor Rand 
of Bates neither college indulged in organ- 
ized cheering. 

The first half was evenly contested, but in 
the second half Bowdoin showed superior 
form, gaining almost at will through the 
Bates' line and continually forcing the Lewis- 
ton college to: punt. 

Commins received the kick-off on Bow- 
doin's. thirty-yard line and advanced the ball 
ten yards before he was downed. 

Lee .made nine yards on the first play and 
Phipps added eight. On the next play Bow- 
doin was penalized ten yards for off-side. 
JN'ewman punted and the Bates man was 
downed in his tracks. 

Bates made five, then three yards. Schu- 
macher tried an onside kick which Wandtke 

Bates was penalized five yards on each of 
the next two plays for offside ; then fifteen 
more for holding. Neither Phipps nor Files 
could gain; a forward pass was blocked and 
it was Bates' ball. 

Two plays netted six yards, and Schuma- 
cher punted to Burton, who ran the ball back 
four yards. 

Lee was unable to gain, on the next play. 
Bowdoin fumbled but recovered the ball. 
Newman punted and on a free fumble Boyn- 
ton recovered the ball on Bates' 35-yard line. 

Bowdoin worked the ball to Bates' 18-yard 
line. Here Burton attempting a forward pass, 
failed to win out five yards, and the team was 
penalized 20 yards. A forward pass touched 
the ground before it was intercepted and it 
was Bates' ball on her own 37-yard line. 

Bates failed to gain in two downs and 
Schumacher punted to Phipps on the thirty- 
vard line. Bowdoin was unable to gain and 
Newman punted to Cummings. 

Two plays netted six yards ; Schumacher 
again punted to Phipps. Bowdoin soon punted 
and Cobb ran the ball back thirteen yards. 

From this point Bates worked the ball to 
Bowdoin's 2S-yard line where Files caught 
Schumacher's forward pass and sprinted to 
the 2 1 -yard line before .the Bates captain 
pulled him down. Newman carried the ball 
within a foot of the goal line ; and Commins 
was pushed over for a touchdown. Newman 
kicked a goal. 

Commins again received the kick-off. Lee 
made two. Files six, Newman punted to Cobb 
on the fifty-yard line. Sargent made four, 
Keaney five, a double pass netted twenty. 
Then Sargent waded e'ghteen yards through 
Bowdoin's line for a touchdown. Schuma- 
cher missed the goal. 

A few more plays were run off, then time 
was called. 

On the second half Bates receiving the 
kick-off rushed the ball up the field to Bow- 
doin's twenty-five yard line. Here Schuma- 
cher failed to kick a field goal. 

No scoring was done in this half, but Bow- 
doin excelled in rushing, twice having the ball 
within Bates twenty-yard line.

Greatest G.\me of the Season on Whit- 
tier Field 

To-raorrow Bowdoin meets her old rival, 
Maine, in what promises to be a battle royal. 
Maine will bring along a very strong team, 
backed by a large contingent of supporters. 
Maine has had a good team this year, having 
trimmed Tufts and Colby, tied with Bates, 
and made Harvard and Dartmouth fight hard 
to run up large scores. The team will arrive 
at eleven o'clock and at two will line up 
against Bowdoin on Whittier Field. Bow- 
doin's team will be there, too, and will give a 
good account of itself after the victory over 
Bates last Saturday. Hubbard grandstand 
will present one solid mass of men. If Bow- 
doin wins this game, the intercollegiate cham- 
pionship belongs to her. It will be remem- 
bered that in 1905 Maine defeated Bowdoin 
18-0, while last year Bowdoin won by a score 
of 6-0. The band under Leader Kane will be 
on the field to help swell the music. The 
officials will be Stevenson, of Exeter, Umpire; 
Knight, of Michigan, Field Judge. The Head 
Linesman has not yet been selected. 

The probable line-up : 

Bowdoin. Maine.

Softly at even the bell is tolled, — 
Silver drops in a fount of gold — 
It chimes through autumn sunset haze. 
That floods these paths and leafy ways. 

!Many are they who come again. 
But in their hearts is speechless pain, 
No longer scattered far and wide 
They sit in silence side by side. 

My thoughts fly back to that June day 
When underneath these portals gray. 
They, too, were with us gathered here 
And gave the sad last-chapel cheer. 

Toll softly on, O chapel bell. 
Ring forth your very clearest knell. 
For somewhere in the vast blue sea 
Old friends and true are hearing thee. 

M. C. DONNELL, '08. 


At the Christian Association meeting on 
Thursday evening of last week the members 
were addressed by Principal W. E. Sargent 
of Hebron Academy in a spirited lecture on 
"Endurance in College." From the nature of 
his address his words were of particular inter- 
est and appeal to his listeners ; and would 
doubtless (with practice) prove of inestima- 
ble value in the formation of a man's charac- 
ter while in college. 

Clayton S. Cooper, International Secretary 
of Bible Study, next spoke to the meeting, 
disclosing facts in regard to the \videspread 
extent of Christian Association work and 
Bible Study in American colleees which 
opened the eyes of the fellows present to their 
scope and importance of work. 


The next College Preacher will be the Rev- 
erend Floyd Tompkins, D.D., who comes to 
Brunswick ne.xt Sunday. He has been enthu- 
siastically recommended to the committee in 
charge of the College .Preacher Fund as the 
man in America best fitted to represent the 
Episcopal Church before a college audience. 
To meet his engagement with us he travels 
further than any guest we have had up to this 
date. He is one of the best-liked preachers 



at Harvard, and combines with intellectual 
insight a spiritual fervor that has given him 
a wide hearing through all the Eastern United 
States. After graduating from Harvard and 
the General Theological Seminary he was a 
missionary in Colorado and Wyoming for 
eight years. From 1883 to 1809 he served 
Episcopal parishes in Keene, N. H., New 
York City, Hartford, Conn., Chicago, 111., and 
Providence, R. I. In 1899 he became rector 
of Holy Trinity, Philadelphia, the church 
made famous by his predecessor, Bishop

To-morrow at the Church 
College Preacher on the Hill Bowdoin stu- 
dents are given the oppor- 
tunity to listen to one of the most foremost 
Preachers of the country, made possible by the 
most kind fund for _ this purpose. The 
Orient desires to remind the students edito- 
rially- of this fact and to express the hope that 
the majority will not become too much fasci- 
nated in "talking over" the great game of 
Saturday on Sunday morning and forget all 
about this on Sunday morning. The attend- 
ance when the last college preacher occupied 
the pulpit was positively disgraceful to the 
college in every way. There were scarcely 
enough students present to fill two rows across 
in the balconies. We believe that condition 
was brought about mainly through forgetful-' 
ness. The purpose of this editorial is that 
you may not forget this coming Sunday. 

If We Win 

If our team wins the 
game to-morrow, we must 
certainly have a real old-fashioned cele- 
bration in the evening. We ought to have a 
rousing good bon-fire and then march around 
the town behind our new banner. There has 
been something said about burning the board 
track, but surely all thoughtful fellows will 
agree with the Orient that that would be no 
way to ce'.ebrate. To rejoice in the victory of 
one team at the expense of some other branch 
of our athletics is certainly poor policy. The 
track team is but poorly supported at best and 
can ill afford to have any of its property 
destroyed. ISIanager Lee was unable to come 
out square in his accounts because he had to 
rebuild the track, and of course no one thought 
of increasing his subscription to pay for the 
damage he had done. Remember, then, to be 
thoughtful in celebration if we win the cham- 


In the will of Mrs. Esther A. Drummond, 
widow of Rev. James Drummond of the 
Class of 1836, $2,000 is donated to the college, 
the interest to be used in buying books for 
the Library, and the fund itself to be estab- 
lished as a gift in memory of her husband. 


At present there is a scheme on foot to form a 
Press Cktb. The idea is to have the college rep e- 
sentatives of the different papers unite into an 
organized body and also have a member of the 
OraENT Board in the club. The bringing together 
of men interested in the same kind of work, would 
undoubtedly be a mighty good thing for the col- 
lege as a whole and for the men individually. In 
this way Bowdoin will be better known to the out- 
side world than she is at present. The club will

During the educational meeting at Bangor, Octo- 
"ber 26, three members of the Bowdoin Faculty, 
while crossing a foot-bridge, met a man, who was 
about "half seas over" in spite of the fact that the 
Sturgis Commission is actively at wo k in that city. 
As the Professors approached him he drew back 
and then suddenly exclaimed to the one in advance, 
"Well, if you ain't King Edward, you look exactly 
like him."

1907. Judge Washburn was the son of Hon.

more, Me., and was born there 29 Oct. 1823.

father and later with his cousin, Hon. Israel 
Washburn, at Orono. Admitted to the Oxford 
County Bar in 1847, he soon after settled in 
the practice of his profession at Oshkosh, 
Wis., which was his home for nearly three

ber of the State Senate; from 1861 to 1864, 
county judge, and from 1871 to 1879, judge 
of the tenth judicial circuit. Judge Wash- 
burn married 19 Nov. 1850, Sarah P. Strick- 
land, sister of Hon. L. S. Strickland (Bow- 
doin, 1857) and is survived by four of his 
five children. For many years Judge Wash- 
burn had lived in retirement withdrawn from 
public aflfairs, but he never lost the high 
esteem which his strict integrity and exem- 
plary life had won for him, nor did his fel- 
low-citizens ever forget the prominent part 
he took in the growth and development of 
his adopted city.

BowDOiN Wins the Greatest Football 
Game in Years and Becomes Unde- 
feated Champion of the State — Bow- 
DOiN, 34; Maine, 5. 

Bowdoin decisively defeated University of 
Maine by the score of thirty-four to five on 
Saturday afternoon before the largest crowd 
ever assembled on Whittier Field. This vic- 
tory gives Bowdoin the undisputed title of 
State champions as the team has previously 
defeated Colby and Bates. 

Maine excelled during the first ten minutes 
of play and during the remainder of the first 
half the team put up a good game. The second 
half, however, was all Bowdoin's and from a 
non-partisan standpoint extremely one-sided. 
The Bowdoin backs tore holes through 
Maine's line or circled her ends for substan- 
tial gains. Three touchdowns were made in 
the first ten minutes of this half. 

The entire team played superbly, and it 
would be impossible to select any one man as 
the individual star. 

Lee made several long runs and gave one 
of the prettiest exhibitions of tackling ever 
seen on Whittier Field. Phipps put up his 
usual star game at left half, figuring in every 
play until his retirement. Files was espe- 
cially strong on interference. Burton showed 
excellent judgment in running his plays ; and 
made frequent gains on quarterback runs. 

Newman and Commins were each a tower 
of strength, gaining almost at will on the 
tackle buck formation. Newman outpunted 
Bearce, and near the end of the second half 
kicked a beautiful placement goal from the 
thirty-yard line. The officials, however, ruled 
that Bowdoin's formation was illegal and 
refused to allow the score. 

Sewall and Haley each put up a good, con- 
sistent game at guard. The passing of Boyn- 
ton at center was perfect. Wandtke played a 
fast, aggressive game, and Smith, who re- 
placed Captain Crowley, showed that he is 
built of 'varsity timber. 

For Maine, Chase at right half was the one 
individual star. A. Cook, who replaced Miner 
at quarter, also played well. Bearce, the 

Freshman whose place kicking won the Colby 
game, failed in his only opportunity. 

Miner caught the kickoff and advanced the 
ball from the twenty-five to the twenty-eight 
yard line. On the first play Chase made 
twenty yards, Hammond made five, then three 
yards round left end. On the next play, 
Maine made first down, Chase made three, 
then Bowdoin held. A forward pass to Cook 
netted 15 yards. Two more plays brought 
the ball to the twenty-yard line, where Bearce 
attempted a goal from placement. The ball, 
however, went wide of the goal posts. 

Newman kicked from the twenty-five yard 
line to Miner, who ran the ball back to the 
center of the field. Higgins made two. 
Phipps threw Chase for a loss, and on the next 
play received Maine's forward pass. 

Files made two yards. Bowdoin fumbled 
and it was Maine's ball. Captain Crowley 
was sent to the sidelines for rough playing 
and Maine given half the distance to her goal 
line on the next play. R. Smith went in at 
right end. 

Two plays sufficed to rush the ball over 
from the 15-yard line. Bearce missed the 
goal. Score — Maine, 5 ; Bowdoin, o. 

Bearce kicked off to Lee who ran the ball 
back thirty yards. Files failed to eain; New- 
man made a small gain. Here Captain Hip-- 
gins was ruled out of the game and Bow- 
doin given half the distance to her goal. Met- 
calf replaced Higgins. 

Files carried the ball from the forty to the 
thirty-eight yard line. Newman made three. 
Maine fumbled an onside kick and Wandtke 
securing the ball made a touchdown. New- 
man kicked the goal. 

Score — Bowdoin, 6; Maine. 5. 

Lee ran the kick-off back twenty-five yards. 
Phipps made two. Maine lost five on offside 
play. Phipps made three, and Newman 
brought the ball to the center of the field for 
first down. Newman made four more, then 
he punted to Hammond on Maine's twenty-five 
yard line. 

Metcalf made four ; a penalty of fifteen 
yards was inflicted on Maine. Metcalf failed 
to gain, and Bearce punted to Burton. 

Bowdoin was penalized fifteen yards; 



Phipps made up four, Newman fifteen. New- 
man punted to Miner on Maine's fifteen-yard 
line. Miner made nine yards ; a bare yard 
gave Maine first down. Chase was thrown 
for a loss by Lee. On the next play Maine 
failed to gain, and Bearce punted to Phipps 
on the forty-seven yard line. 

Burton made twenty on a quarterback run. 
Commins added ten. Newman made five ; 
Commins six yards. Newman brought the 
ball within a foot of the goal and Commins 
took it over. Newman missed the goal. 

Score — Bowdoin, ii ; Maine, 6. 

No more scoring occurred during the 
remained of this half. Near the end Bow- 
doin brought the ball within a yard of Maine's 
goal but was penalized fifteen yards. 

Commins received the kickoff and 
advanced the ball from the fifteen to the thirty- 
four yard line. Lee made a spectacular run 
of forty-five yards on a double pass. He then 
made three. Bowdoin failed to gain. Bowdoin 
tried the forward pass, and was penalized 
fifteen yards. Wandtke recovered Newman's 
punt. Phipps brought the ball to the seven- 
yard line and Newman carried it over. Time 
— 2i minutes. Newman kicked the goal. 

Score — Bowdoin, 17; Maine, 5. 

Receiving the kickofif Maine was unable to 
gain. Burton caught Bearce's punt in the cen- 
ter of the field. Two plays netted five yards. 
Newman punted and Sewall recovered the ball 
on Maine's 27-yard line. Commins made five, 
then Lee dashed for another touchdown 
Time — about two minutes. Newman nar- 
rowly missed a difficult goal. 

Score — Bowdoin, 22 ; Maine^ 5. 

Jt required less than five minutes to make 
another touchdown. On the kickoff Phipps 
made forty-five yards. Never losing posses- 
sion of the ball, the team rushed it over for 
another touchdown. Newman kicked the 
goal. Score — Bowdoin, 28 ; Maine, 5. 

Here Maine played football for a time. 
Receiving Newman's kickoff, she worked the 
ball to Bowdoin's 50-yard line, where New- 
man's recovered it on a fumble. Maine held 
for downs, receiving the ball again on her 
own fifty-yard line. 

From this point Chase and Hammond 
rushed the ball to Bowdoin's five-yard line. 
Here Bowdoin held. Newman punted out 
forty yards and Cook ran back ten. Bowdoin 
held, and soon rushed the ball down the field 
for the final touchdown. Newman kicked the 
goal. Score — Bowdoin, 34; Maine, 5. 

No scoring was done in the last ten minutes 
of the play. Newman drove the ball between 
the cross bars for a placement goal from the 
thirty-yard line, but the officials ruled that 
Bowdoin's formation was illegal and 
brought the ball back.

Bowdoin Interscholastic Le.\gue for 1907. 

The Bowdoin Debating League which was 
organized last year among the preparatory 
schools of Maine and carried on with such 
eminent success, now enters upon the second 
year of its existence. The League remains 
the same with one exception, Portland High 
takes the place of Gardiner High. The pop- 
ularity and the strength of this League among 
the principal Maine fitting schools, is attested 
bv the fact that six new schools applied for 
admission for the coming year and were 
turned down on the ground that too many 
schools would make the League cumbersome 
and unwieldy and the too frequent debates 
would detract students' attention from other 

The results of the interscholastic debates 
during the past year were highly pleasing. 
The citizens of the various cities gave loyal 
support to their schools, and the schools 
entered into it themselves with all the "vim 
and vigor" worthy of such a purpose. The 



most ambitious, capable and energetic men in 
the schools devoted much time in Di-eparation 
of tlieir questions and when they met in pub- 
lic the contests were spirited, lopical, and 

The purpose of the Bowdoin Debating 
Leac'ue in instituting and encouragine this 
snirit among the Maine Preparatory Schools 
is to arouse in them the desire for doing what 
so few men can do, that is, express them- 
selves in public in a clear, concise, command- 
ing manner, and to produce action as a result 
of conviction ; for inculcating in men the 
indomitable determination to win by more 
extended research, and by display of superior 
skill and power, qualities and characteristics 
that make for the highest, most efficient and 
most progressive type of citizenship. 

The following is the agreement governing the 
Bowdoin Debating League for 1907 : 

1. The name of this organization shall be the 
Bowdoin Debating League. 

2. The members of this League shall be : 

Edward Little High School, Auburn, 
Cony High School, Augusta. 
Jordan High School, Lewiston. 
Portland High School. 

3. On February 28, igo8, Augusta High School 
shall meet Portland High School in debate at Port- 
land. On the same evening, Edward Little High 
School shall meet Lewiston High School in debate 
at Lewiston. 

4. The questions shall be submitted by Portland 
and Auburn and approved by the Bowdoin Debating 
Council. The choice of sides shall fall to Augusta 
and Lewiston, and shall be announced within ten 
days after the receipt of the question. 

5. The winning schools in the Preliminary Debates 
shall hold a Final Debate at Bowdoin College on 
May I, 1908. The question and sides shall be deter- 
mined by the representatives of the school in con- 
sultation with the Manager of the Bowdoin Debat- 
ing Council. 

6. The Presiding OlScers for the Preliminary 
Debates shall be chosen by Auburn and Portland ; 
for the Final Debate by the Bowdoin Debating 

7. The Bowdoin Debating Council agrees to fur- 
nish each school, without expense to the school, a 
competent coach for each debate. 

8. The schools agree that the.e shall be no coach- 
ing on the argument except that provided by the 
appointed coach. 

9. The expenses of the Preliminary Debates, 
except the expenses of the coaches, shall be paid by 
the schools, each school paying one-half the expenses 
of the debate in whicii it takes pa: t. The expenses 
of the Final Debate, except the traveling expenses of 
the teams, shall be paid by the Bowdoin Debating 

10. To each member of the winning team in the 
Final Debate and to the winning school shall be 
awarded a prize cup, appropriately engraved. 

11. Each school shall elect one representative, 
and these men, together with the Manager of the 
Bowdoin Debating Council as Chairman of the 
Board, shall be the official representatives of the 
schools in all matters pertaining to the League. 

12. In case of any disagreement between schools, 
each school shall select one arbiter who, with the 
Professor of Argumentation at Bowdoin College, 
sliall render a final decision on the point in dispute. 

1,3. The Judges for each debate shall be instructed 
as follows : 

Each school selects alternately the questions to be 
debated and sends the formulated question to its 
opponent, leaving to its opponent the choice of sides. 
The side which either school cliooses to advocate 
need not, therefore, represent the prevalent trend of 
opinion in that school, or even the individual opin- 
ion of the debaters. 

The League is agreed upon the general principle 
that the award should not be made on the merits of 
the question but on the merits of the debate; that is 
to say, consideration as to what may seem to a judge 
the intrinsic merit of either side of a question 
should not enter into the award ; but the award 
ought to be made to that school team which shows 
in general greater argumentative ability and better 
form as speakers. 

In determining argumentative ability, the judges 
should take into conside. ation thoro knowledge of 
the question, logical sequence, skill in selecting and 
presenting evidence, and power in rebuttal ; and in 
considering the form of the speakers, as distin- 
guished from their arguments, they should regard 
bearing, quality of voice, correct pronunciation, clear 
enunciation, and directness, variety and emphasis in 

Matter is to be regarded as more important than 
form. Should one team excel in matter and the other 
to an equal degree in form, the award should go to 
that team which excels in matter. 

The Judges, withovit consultation, shall hand writ- 
ten ballots to the Chairman who shall at once 
announce the decision. 

14. Portland shall submit to Augusta and Auburn 
shall submit to Lewiston, before the first day of Jan- 
uary, 1908, a list of ten men proposed as judges. 
From this list the school to whjch it is sent shall 
endeavor to secure three men to act as judges, 
n the school cannot secure three satisfactory judges 
from the first list, it may ask for a second list of 
ten names. 

Professor Foster has chosen the following men as 
coaches for the teams composing the Bowdoin 
Debating League : Ha rison Atwood, '09, of Auburn, 
Edward Little High; William T. Harris, '09, of Lynn, 
Mass., Lewiston High; Albert T. Gould, '08, of 
Thomaston, Augusta High, and Fred L. Pennell, of 
Portland, Portland High.

. .. Consistent with the policy 

^. . . . which the Orient pre- 

Championship - i i i lT 

■^ "^ viously advanced, we have 

not considered it essential that every occasion 
where Bowdoin has won or lost an athletic 
contest, was necessarily worthy of editorial 
comment. But the notable achievement of the 
football team this fall is certainly an occasion 
of especial moment. Again we have won a 
championship, and an undisputed champion- 
ship. Undefeated in the State, Bowdoin may 
well be proud of our record on the football 
field this fall. 

To the captain, coach and team we offer 
our hearty congratulations. From a group 
of men which appeared of but little propect at 
the opening of college, has been developed the 
best team that has been put on the field in 
several years. The season has been a partic- 
ularly satisfactory one in every way. Every- 
one has been interested, there has been a 
good number of players out right through the 

season, the men have trained faithfully, and 
the financial support has been good. It would 
be trite for the Orient to advance any com- 
ment on the consistent, hard, never-say-die 
spirit that prevailed in all the playing. That 
Ross McClave has had the unbounded confi- ^ 
dence of very man, player and student, is 
well-known. We wish him all success 
through the year. "Undefeated champions" 
in baseball in the spring, and then in football 
in the fall, are honors in which it is pardon- 
able if we show a little pride. 

A Plea for 

In an editorial a short 

r r i time ago the Orient coin- 
Common Courtesy ^ j r u^ ^1 
•" mented favorably on the 

excellent spirit maintained between the two 
bodies of student supporters at a football 
game. This was an early game. Regretta- 
ble as it may seem, the Orient feels it must 
make quite a reverse comment from recent 
events. That Bowdoin is the rival of every 
college in the State, is an admitted fact. That 
Bates, Maine and Colby had all rather defeat 
Bowdoin than any other team, we have con- 
stant evidence from their own statements. 
But that this triple rivalry should be such as 
to deny to Bowdoin the courtesies of sports- 
manlike contest is as regretable as it appears 
evident to be. We cannot help but feeling as 
each bip' game has been played in football this 
season, that we are not being shown the same 
courtesies that we are showing. The Orient 
feels that Bowdoin cheering has always been 
courteous and sportsmanlike. We were glad 
to see that at our recent game, whenever a 
change was made in the line-up of the visit- 
ing team, the Bowdoin cheering section gave 
a cheer for the player of the other institution. 
And the Orient is further proud to note that 
in general all "yagging" was kept out of the 
cheering as much as the leaders could do so. 
But, franklv now, are our efiforts appreciated? 
After the recent big game of Whittier Field, 
the Bowdoin students, while forming to 
march from the field, halted in front of the 
bleachers where the supporters of the opposing 
team were still spiritedly cheering, the Bow- 
doin men gave cheer after cheer for our vis- 
itors. But was there any notice taken of this 
courtesy? Did Bowdoin receive a single 
answering cheer? The Orient does not 
believe that a man who yells in a crowd that 
"So and So will be killed if he ever goes up 
to our college on the Hockey Team," or 
another who excitedly advises his friends to 


J 75 

"hurry to the station before the Bowdoin stu- 
dents start fighting and mobbing us," ever 
really represent true sentiments. But the 
Orient does feel that Bowdoin students as a 
body are to be congratulated on the courteous 
and sportsmanlike conduct that they have as 
a body maintained this season, regardless of 
whether we have at all times been shown 
answering courtesy. 

Once again we have to 
On Combinations comment on the old sub- 
ject of combinations in 
>:lass elections. We had thought this was an 
evil which we were abandoning at Bowdoin, 
of which the students had realized the sense- 
lessness. But it seems that the present Senior 
Class has desired to record itself as one in 
which the members were not willing to let 
elections be conducted by individuals, but 
rather preferred they be conducted by parties. 
The Orient does not desire to make any fur- 
ther comment. What is the use? We believe 
that all the class officers are capable and rep- 
resentative men. It is not the personnel that 
is open to criticism, but there certainly is an 
element of disgrace in that even good men can- 
not be chosen without resource to politics. 
1908 must always be known as a class of com- 
bines. The Seniors have set an example 
which we most heartily hope will not be fol- 

It certainly was a pleasure 
An Appreciation to every Bowdoin gradu- 

a t e and undergraduate 
who was on the Whittier Athletic Field last 
Saturday to see the hearty interest and co- 
operation that the citizens of Brunswick show 
in the life of the undergraduates. No more 
enthusiastic Bowdoin supporters were at the 
game than these men, who marched to the 
game accompanied by a band and cheered 
vigorously throughout for Bowdoin and 
Bowdoin's team. When a Bowdoin team 
plays in Lewiston, we are proud that there are 
Bowdoin supporters there ; and a group of 
Bowdoin's most loyal alumni live in Bangor ; 
but we do take a particular pride in the 
the thought that when a visiting team plays in 
Brunswick, there is but one local loyalty ; and 
all of Brunswick is Bowdoin. Bowdoin stu- 
dents may act thoughtlessly at times. There 
are occasions when student conduct is not 
above reproach. But the Orient is glad to 

note that the town of Brunswick forgets in 
the long run what shortcomings a college 
student may have ; and whenever a notable 
occasion arises, Brunswick and Bowdoin are 
one. For this we are all very thankful and 


Bowdoin Invited to Establish Chapter of 
Honorary Society of Men Interested 
in Public Speaking. 

During the past few years an intercollegi- 
ate debating society has been formed in the 
Middle West for the purpose of improving 
the character and the standards of debate and 
oratory. This organization known as Delta 
Sigma Rho, already has chapters in the Uni- 
versities of Minnesota, Illinois, Iowa, Chi- 
cago, Northwestern, Michigan, Nebraska, 
and Wisconsin, while several Eastern univer- 
sities have made application for membership. 
O'n account of the enviable and almost 
unequalled reputation that Bowdoin has 
attained among the Eastern universities and 
colleges, we have been asked to identify our- 
selves with this movement, which to all prob- 
abilities, will in time include the principal col- 
leges and universities in the country. 

The purpose of Delta Sigma Rho may be 
inferred from the following extract taken 
from a chapter circular. "The central thought 
in the formation of Delta Sigma Rho was to 
bring together those who with the splendid 
equipment obtained from traming and prac- 
tice in public speaking, would make up an 
organization composed of the flower of the 
college and university men. The native abil- 
ity, personal force, spirit and courage sure to 
be found among and in those who had gained 
honors in severe intellectual contests would 
insure an organization of power and effective- 
ness in the promotion of its aims. Not only 
does it seek to improve the character and 
standards of the work of intercollegiate 
debate and oratory, but it will reach out 
beyond these immediate purposes and attempt 
to rouse public spirit,, stir patriotism and ele- 
vate in every way the standards of citizen- 

Whether or not we make use of this oppor- 
tunity, as Bowdoin men, we are glad that it 
has come to us, for it signifies that our repu- 
tation is not confined to the limits of New 
England, but is known among the great uni- 
versities of the West. Furthermore, as we 



are the first New England college asked to 
affiliate ourselves with this movement, it is 
a sure indication that in one thing at least we 
have in the past done something worth while, 
and when this matter is brought before the 
Debating Council it is hoped that it will be 
given every consideration and respect. 

This society is purely- honorary and no per- 
son is eligible until he has actually partici- 
pated in an intercollegiate contest of debate 
or orator}'. Tliis seems to be only fair for 
many of the most ambitious and energetic 
men in college devote much time to oratory, 
thereby sacrificing frequently the opportunity 
to make the various athletic teams, and hon- 
orary societies such as Phi Beta Kappa and 
Sigma Psi. For this reason excellence in 
public speaking should be recognized, for 
wherever it is carried on effectively — at the 
bar, in the pulpit, on the platform, in legisla- 
tive assemblies, before committees, in the club 
or the lodge — there lies its field of usefulness. 
The importance and the inevitable influence 
of such a society as Delta Sigma Rho with 
such a purpose and such a horizon needs no 
further exploiting. 


On Sunday last Bowdoin College students 
had the privilege of listening to the Rev. 
Floyd Tompkins of Philadelphia, the second 
of the college preachers. Mr. Tompkins' talk 
was based upon the story of Gideon found 
in Judges, 6, ii. In a brief way he told the 
story of this biblical hero, and then cited it as 
an example of the rule of the individual or 
minority. In part he said: The great achieve- 
ments in this world have been brought about 
not by the class but by the individual. This 
is found to be true in the New Testament 
where Christ takes his disciples not col- 
lectively hut individually, and thru the indi- 
vidual brings about the redemption of the 
world. So it is in any organization. A col- 
lege is not known by the achievements of any 
body connected with it, but rather by the indi- 
viduals who stand out by themselves. The 
position of the individual may be obscure, as 
was that of Gideon, it may be humble and 
held in scorn, but during all this time a char- 
acter and individuality may be forming that 
will make for success bye and bye. Accord- 
ingly, we as college students by the very fact 

of our massing together should strive not to 
allow our ciwn individual aims to be swal- 
lowed up by the influences of those about us. 
Mnally, we should strive not to be alike but 
to be different from our fellows and that dif- 
ference should be characterized by simplicity 
and sincerity, both of which rest on an abso- 
lute purity of heart.

A travel sermon on "Morocco, the Sunset 
Land," and illustrated with stereopticon pic- 
tures will be given in the Congregational 
Church, Sunday evening, at 7.30 o'clock. 

The Christian Association Bible Study Class 
will meet on Monday evening next week at 7 
o'clock. The subject will be, "The World 
Bibles and the Christian Bible." The read- 
ings are the Mohammedan Koran, Chapter 2, 
entitled "The Cow ;" Edwin Arnold's "Light 
of Asia," Book 8 ; and the Gospel of Matthew, 
Chapters 5-8. More than thirty men were 
present at the last session. 


After the game Saturday a great celebration took 
place. At eight o'clock the students formed in line 
and headed by the French band, marched down 
Main Street, around to the Professors'. homes, and 
thence to the campus, where cheers were given 
around a huge bon-fire in front of King Chapel. 
Maine Street was one mass of bon-fires and fire- 
works were set off in front of many of the stores, 
thru the generosity of the townspeople. Impiomptu 
speeches were given by Professors Foster, Sills, 
Woodruff, Allen Johnson, Henry Johnson, Files, 
Edwards, Robinson and Mitchell. Never before was 
there such a celebration in Brunswick — a fitting trib- 
ute to such a great victory.

This year Bowdoin's opponents scored 78 points 
against her and she scored 58. 

Kendrie's rendering of Handel's "Largo" in chapel 
last Sunday was especially fine. 

Both the Sophomores and Freshmen are had at 
work for the struggle next week. 

J. B. Pendleton, '90, was referee at the Harvard- 
Dartmouth game at Cambridge, Saturday. 

Several of the students are planning to attend

The business men of Brunswick proved themselves 
very effective "rooters" at the football game. 

Our canine friend, "Mr. Dooley" was an interested 
and apparently well satisfied spectator at the Maine 

Mr. William Peunell of Lewiston will tender the

Jud, the barber, presented Coach McClave, Trainer 
Nickerson and the thirteen men who won their foot- 
ball "B" with a silver loving cup, appropriately 
engraved. The cups were on exhibition in Chandler's 
window this week. Jud also presented the baseball 
team last spring with similar cups. 

That old joke of bringing dogs into chapel is get- 
ting a bit worn out. With the possible exception 
of "Dooley," who has attended chapel services long 
enough to realize proper conduct even better than 
a few of the undergraduates, the average canine 
seems unable to properly appreciate the services. 
The sense of propriety of men in college should be 
strong enough to keep the chapel services dignified. 


The Senior Class met in Memorial Hall, Wednes- 
day afternoon and elected the following officers for 
the ensuing year: President, Charles N. Abbott;

CLASS OF 1866 

Ezekiel Hanson Cook, Ph.D., died after a 

brief illness 8 Nov. 1907, at Madison, Wis. 

Dr. Cook was the son of Hanson and Nancy 

Jane (Wheeler) Cook and was born 18 Dec. 



1845, at Madrid, Maine. He was prepared 
for college at the Maine State Seminary, 
Lewiston, Me. His college course at Bowdoin 
was interrupted- by his service in 1864-5 ^^ 
quartermaster-sergeant in the First Maine 
Light Artillery. After graduation he was for 
successive years, principal of Wilton Acad- 
emy' Superintendent of Schools at Orange, N. 
J., principal of Woodstock Academy, Corin., 
and the first principal of the State Normal 
School at Westchester, Penn. In 1871 he 
became principal of the High School at Colum- 
bus, Ohio, a position he held for nine years 
bringing that institution to a high state of 
efiSciency. The next three years were devoted 
to rest and out-door life, and were spent 
chiefly in mining in Arizona. In 1883 he was 
chosen principal of the State Normal School 
at Potsdam, N. Y., which under his adminis- 
tration became the largest of the nine then 
existing in the state. From 1889 to 1891 he 
was headmaster of Rutgers College Prepar- 
atory School at New Brunswick, N. J., and 
the following two years superintendent of 
public schools at Flushing, L. I. He was one 
of the founders, an associate editor and for 
several years business manager of the Educa- 
tional Revicii'. Ill health forced him to give 
up professional work in 1893 ''"'^ the rest of 
his life was given to business enterprises. He 
was connected with the Birkbeck Loan & 
Investment Company of New York City from 
1893 to 1895, a'ld subsequently was president 
and manager of several mining companies' 
with headquarters at Denver, Col., and resi- 
dence at Boulder, Col. 

Dr. Cook received honorary degrees from 
Colgate and St. Lawrence Universities ; was 
secretary, president, and a life director of the 
National Educational Association and presi- 
dent of the Teachers' x\ssociations of New 
York and of New Jersey. Few, if any, sons 
of Bowdoin, have been more widely and more 
favorably known than he in that field to which 
he gave his best years and all his energies. 

CLASS OF 1881 

The sudden death of Dr. Edward H. Cham- 
berlin, at Cheran, S. C, on November 9, 1907, 
affords another instance of the courage and 
self-sacrifice so often exhibited by members of 
the medical profession. He had been called 
to relieve the sufferings of a man violent with 
an attack of delirium trements. While labor- 
ing with the patient, he received from him a 

severe blow upon the head that resulted in his 
own- death the following day. 

Dr. Chamberlin. son of Henry and Mary 
Elizabeth Chamberlin, was born 11 January, 
1858, at Westford, Mass. He was prepared 
for college at Westford Academv under the 
tuition of W. E. Frost (Bowdoin, 1S70). 
After graduation he entered upon the study of 
medicine, and attended lectures at the Eclectic 
Medical Institute of Cincinnati, Ohio, where 
he received the degree of M.D. in January, 
1884. After practicing a short time in 
Lowell, Mass., and in Clarendon, Vt., he set- 
tled in Chelmsford, Mass. Here he was 
actively engaged in professional work until 
March, 1903, when the ill health of his wife 
and daughter led him to remove to Cheran, 
S. C. He had acquired a successful practice 
and. at the time of his death had served both 
as secretary and chairman of the Homeo- 
pathic Board of Medical Examiners for the 
State. Dr. Chamberlin married, i June 
1886, Flora Elizabeth, daughter of Timothy 
Adams of Chelmsford. Mass., who survives 
him with their three daughters, Jessie Rose, 
Elizabeth and Gertrude Chamberlin.

Xovember is none the less welcome for its 
tardiness, and this will be freely excused on 
receipt of the promised tri-weekly, or possibly 
bi-weekly, numbers that are to complete the 
work of the present board. of editors. 

As a review of the Oitill is primarily 
• intended to stimulate and guide in a friendly 
fashion the presumably faltering pen of the 
undergraduate, a certain embarrassment arises 
from the fact that out of the four prose pieces 
of this issue only one is the offering of a stu- 
dent now on the grbund. This regrettable cir- 
cumstance, to be sure, is nothing new, and is 
in a measure oft'set by the eft'ective expression 
of student thought and feeling in the three 
pieces of verse. But it is very much to be 
wished that the board would make a deter- 
mined effort to arouse greater literary activity 
in the four College classes. The editors could 
count on the cordial co-operation of the 
instructors in the English Department, and 
indeed every member of the Faculty would 
gladly second the undertaking. 

The writer of "Matthew Arnold, the Honest 
Doubter,'' has seized firmly on the central 
quality of this poet's nature — his essential 
religiousness — which gains for Arnold a hear- 
ing that otherwise would be refused him by 
many earnest minds, thus spreading widely, 
for good or ill, an iniinence which profoundly 
affected Arnold's own time, and which, as this 
paper shows, is still potent with a younger 

.\n interesting feature of this and of recent 
numbers are the "Notes on Works of Art in 
the Bowdoin Collection." The accompany'ng 
portraits of the Misses Walker recall anew the 
debt of gratitude that every Bowdoin man 
owes to these benefactresses. 

Under the rather conventional and unprom- 
ising title of "The Course of True Love," we 
have the happy conclusion of an entertaining 
short story in which incident and character 
sketching are well combined. The dialogue 
runs naturally and easily, and the lively, 
warm-hearted Sally strikes one as a real per- 

sonality. This writer's work in College writ- 
ing gives promise of success in a larger field. 

In "Some Impressions of Gloucester" by one 
of the younger students, imagination, observa- 
tion and sympathy express themselves in a 
simple and sincere way, thereby illustrating 
the advantage of dealing with a subject that 
is a part of one's own experience. Such a 
cho'ce of subject is to be recommended espe- 
cially to those who are beginning to write. 
In a degenerate time it is a pleasure to find a 
young writer using shall and zvill correctly, 
as in this case; but on page 18S in the sen- 
tence, "Would we not see, etc.," zuould ought 
to be should. On the next page, the care 
required in the management of English pro- 
no ms and adverbs is evident in the sentence, 
"How many eyes have welcomed them which 
they had never again dared hope to see," 
where the context compels iiihich to refer to 
thciii and they to refer to eyes; while again 
must go with see. 

Of the three contributions in verse, "Com- 
pensation" contains a simple thought simply 
and clearly set forth ; "The Quest" has true 
devotional feeling unmarred by cant or halt- 
ing movement ; "The Eventide" gives utter- 
ance with grace and fitness to the deep and 
lasting sorrow felt by the whole College and 
community in consequence of the calamity of 
the vacation. These pieces rise above the 
average of undergraduate verse. In metre 
they are as good as much of Whittier, and in 
poetic quality they compare favorably with 
Longfellovi''s earlier work. 

The passing of "Gray Goose Tracks" w'll 
not be regretted, on the whole, by most 

An excellent plan is announced in "Ye 
Postman" of placing the Quill exchanges in 
the Periodical Room for general perusal. It 
is highly important that students here shou'd 
know what their contemporaries elsewhere are 
doing in the matter of writing, and such access 
to student publ'cations can scarcely fail to 
promote a healthy spirit of emulation in those 
who desire — and who does not ' desire ? — to 
keep Bowdoin abreast with other colleges in 
literary as well as in all other excellence.

Brunswick, Maine, November 28. 1907. 
To the Editor of the Orient: 

Aly Dear Sir : Will you kindly allow me 
the use of your columns to bring forward once 
again a topic which has often been informally 
discussed? One of the great needs of the Col- 
lege today is, at least in the minds of many, 
^ a building or hall or club-house where every 
one can meet on common ground as Bowdoin 
men. Now that every fraternity has a house 
of its own, there is still more need of one 
place where the social and democratic life of 
the whole College may center. A building on 
the campus, which should in a very modest 
way correspond to the Harvard Union or to 
the building which Amherst is proposing to 
erect, would be of great service. We ought 
to have some sort of a hall or union where 
all who are interested in Bowdoin College, 
Alumni, undergraduates, faculty, fraternity 
and non-fraternity men would be perfectly at 
home — where we could all meet for the gen- 
eral good of the College. 

In bringing forward again such a project 
as this, I am perfectly aware that the College 
today has many pressing needs. The first 
thing to be provided is the proposed increase 
of the endowment funds. And the College 
certainly ought to have a new gymnasium 
soon. But it will take a long time for such 
a project as a Bowdoin Hall to mature. For 
several years men dreamed of the Harvard 
Union before the generosity of Major Hig- 
ginson made the dream a reality. For several 
years the dean of Columbia College pleaded 
for a home for the undergraduates of that 
institution; and only a short while ago Ham- 
ilton Hall was dedicated. It is likewise pos- 
sible that the gift of such a building to Bow- 
doin might appeal to some friend of the Col- 
lege where other appeals fail. Very likely 
there will be something to be said on the other 
side. But surely we can all work for more 
unity in the social life of the College. The 
question for discussion is whether such an 
undertaking as I have suggested is pertinent 
and practicable. 

Very truly yours, 

Kenneth C. M. Sills, '01. 


D.\TE Definitely Fixed for J.\ni'.\ry 22. 

Sever.\l Old St.vrs to f.e in the C.\st 

The date of the Bowdoin College Minstrel 
Show, given each year under the auspices of 
the Baseball Association, has been definitely 
fi.xed for January 22. Of the six end men 
who did such creditable work last year, Lee, 
Cox, Sheehan and Ralph Smith are still in 
College and will again appear in the cast, 
W'hile "Bill" Crowley has consented to act as 
interlocutor. The Olio this year will be excep- 
tionally strong as it includes, besides such 
well-known artists as Boyce, Kendrie, the 
iNIikelsky Brothers and Bert Morrell, other ■ 
men of considerable ability who purpose to give 
numbers which cannot help but be remarkably 
effective. The date of the first rehearsal has 
not been fixed upon, but it will probably occur 
directly after the Christmas holidays. It is 
urgently hoped that the fellows will give their 
strongest support to the show in order that a 
chorus may be developed which will be admi- 
rable, not only for its volume, but also for 
its quality. As a result of previous negotia- 
tions, the management have every reason to 
hope that the entertainment will be staged in 
Augusta. The show this year will be under 
the direction of the same man, who has for 
three 'previous years coached so many suc- 
cessful College Minstrel Shows, Mr. Robert 
A. Toothaker. With so many old stars in line 
for a nucleus and with such a remarkably fine 
lot of new talent to build upon, Mr. Tooth- 
aker cannot fail to stage a performance which 
will rank high among its predecessors and 
challenge favorable comparison with any col- 
lege minstrel show in the country. 


At a recent meeting of the American Medi- 
cal Association the Maine Medical School has 
been ranked among the five leading schools 
of the country. This fact is "based upon the 
percentage of those who failed to pass the 
examination required before they are admit- 
ted to practise. The Maine Medical School 
had a very low percentage and was ranked 
accordingly. The association inspected the 
school and found everything very satisfactory. 
This is one of the greatest honors that has 
been conferred upon this institution for some 



time. The Maine Medical School is now 
ranked with Johns Hopkins, Harvard, Yale 
and Tufts. In point of number the school is 
smallest in the list and is the only one among 
the number that is a State institution. This 
is an honor which should certainly give a 
feeling of pride to every Bowdoin man, col- 
legiate as well as medical.

Boiler Blows up Killing Three and Injuring Two. 

Slio tly after midnight last Sunday morning one 
of the heating boilers in the Maine Central Station 
blew up, doing considerable damage to the building 
and causing some loss of life. The dead are as fol- 
lows : 

William Woodward, night baggage master. 

Walter Harris, car inspector. 

Joseph Terriault, railroad employe. 

The injured : 

Fred Sylvester, employe of the American Express 

Clyde L. Pinney, night operator. 

The boiler had not been used for some time 
and explosion was caused by the water getting too 
low or else by the turning of water into the tubes 
when they were dry and hot. Woodward had just 
gone into the cellar to fix the fire when the explosion 
occurred, and his mangled body was found a short 
distance f om the wrecked boiler. 

Harris and Terriault were standing on the plat- 
form outside the ticket office and were crushed 
beneath the roof when it was broken down by the 
weight of bricl-s from the gable end above. Harris 
was instantly killed, but Terriault, although terribly 
injured, suvived at the Lewiston hospital until the 
next day. 

If the accident had occurred a short time before, 
the death rate would probably have been larger, as 
the station was crowded just before the departure 
of the Boston train. 

A peculiar circumstance about the explosion is 
that, although brick walls were torn away, the win- 
dows in the waiting oom and the glass in the clock 
face were not broken. The breals in the brick wall 
will be temporarily covered with boards until the 
weather is warm enough for the use of mortar. 

FOOTBALL— 1910, 0; 1911, 

The Freshman and Sophomore football elevens 
played a rather unsatisfactory game on the Delta 
Tuesday afternoon, Novembe ; 27. As a result of 
the mid year warnings, the Freshmen were deprived 
of six of their best players, including Captain Haley. 
The muddy condition of the field prevented fast 
playing, and rendered long end runs impossible. 
For 1910, Newman, Ross and Nulty played well. 
Sullivan, Richards and Hitchborn excelled for igil.

Concerning Our 

On the first page of this 
issue of the Orient, is a 
communication which we 
are particularly pleased to publish. It must 
appear to every Bowdoin man who reads it 
as being most apt and timely. It echoes a 
sentiment of which we are all conscious and 
asks for that which we would all like to see. 
This is not the first time that sentiments of this 
nature have been expressed in the columns of 
the college weekly. A number of years ago 
a communication was printed which outlined 
this same idea. We are glad to see that once 
again this is brought to the attention of the 
college world. We would wish that the hope 
the writer expresses might be realized in 
no distant future, but we realize, as is 
expressed, that sentiment grows slowly. 

Meanwhile, we are only too glad to do any- 
thing possible to increase this sentiment. In 
particular, we would be pleased to receive fur- 
ther communications on this same subject from 
interested friends and graduates. The Orient 
unhesitatingly believes that the founding of 
some "Bowdoin Union" is the most urgent 
improvement needed for maintaining and 
increasing of democratic college spirit. May 
the idea suggested in our communication 
increase and see realization at no far distant 
date ! 

Now that the regular mid- 
On Warnings term "warnings" have been 
sent out and the vacation of 
Thanksgiving time has given opportunity for 
"home explanations," there is one comment 
that the student body desires to make for 
future time. We wish that a definite and uni- 
form standing for warning be established. As 
it is at present, each professor is interpreting 
ihe meaning of this in a different wa}'. Some 
only "warn" when the student has a mark 
below the passing-grade, while some send 
warnings on "D" grade, or higher, that is, 
when any student is simply lozv. A changing 
schedule is scarcely fair to the students. Tech- 
nically, and as "warnings" are regarded as 
serious enough to debar men from all College 
athletics, we believe it is not right to "warn" 
a man, unless he is below passing. This has 
been the practice in former years. At any 
rate, we hope the faculty will grant the student 
body a consistent schedule, so that one may 
know definitely what grade has — or rather has 
not — been attained, when one receives a warn- 
ing notice. We do not believe that a student 
may be "warned" on "any grade whatsoever," 
but rather must have failed to attain some 
definite, fixed mark. 

In past years it has been 
College Rally customary for the Presi- 
. dent of the Athletic Asso- 
ciation to appoint a committee to make prepa- 
rations for the Annual College Rally. Since 
no formal motion to this eft'ect was made at 
the last mass-meeting, the Orient would 
recommend that steps be taken to appoint a 
committee to take charge of the affair. We 
most certainly want a good, hearty, rousing- 
rally next spring, and in order to make it such 
preparations should begin at once. 




Dr. and Mrs. H. C. Bradford and his sister. 
Miss Clara F. Bradford, of Lewiston, have 
presented the Bowdoin College library with 
a complete set of the original silhouettes of 
the class of 1825. The silhouettes were orig- 
inally owned by Dr. Richmond Bradford of 
Auburn, a member of the class. The sil- 
houettes are in an excellent state of preserva- 
tion, and most of them contain original auto- 


The following is a list of the subjects, also the 
principal speakers at the debates in English 5, this 
semester : 

December 17 — Secret Societies in Public High 
Schools should be Prohibited. Affirmative, Ha ris, 
'09; Stahl, '09. Negative, Atwood, '09; Merrill, '08. 

January 7 — For the State of Maine Prohibition 
in the Liquor Traffic Is Preferable to High License. 
.Affirmative, Marsh, '09; Fisher, '10. Negative, Buck, 
'09; F. L. Pennell, '08. 

January 14 — Bowdoin College Should Have a Col- 
lege Commons. Affirmative, F. T. Smith, '08; Boyce, 
'08. Negative, Stone, '10 ; A. Robinson, '08. 

January 21 — Commercial Reciprocity With Can- 
ada Would Be Economically Advantageous to the 
United States. Affi mative, Hyde, '08; Koughan, '09. 
Negative, Hinkley, '09 ; Ginn, '09, 

January 24 — The Recommendations of the Sim- 
plified Spelling Board Should Be Adopted by the 
American People. Affirmative, Clark, '08; Ready, 
'10. Negative. Estes, '09: Timberlake, '09. 

January 28— Cities of Over 28,0D0 Inhabitants 
Should Own and Operate their Own Street Rail- 
ways. Affirmative, R. Pennell, '09; Sheehan, '09. 
Negative, McDade, '09; Burton, '09. 

The following is a list of presiding officers : 
December 17, Marsh; January 7, Atwood; January 
14, Ha ris; January 21, Stahl; January 24, R. Pen- 
nell ; January 28. Clark. 

The debates will all be held in the Debating Room 
at Memorial Hall. Students not taking the course 
are welcome at all the debates. 


With the rink nearing completion, and the cold 
weather setting in, ice hockey is next on the pro- 
gram. From last year's team the following men 
are at College ; Captain Abbott, R- W. Smith, 
Dresser, Hughes, and Hamburger. Many promising 
men will be out to complete the team, of whom 
might be mentioned, Hyde, Leavitt, Wight, Johnson, 
Drape-, Pearson and Byles. Games have been 
arranged with Dartmouth and Maine, subject to the 
approval of the Faculty. Negotiations are pending 
with Bates and Harvard. The Dartmouth game will 
be played in Hanover, while one Maine game will 
be played on Whittier Field, the other in Orono. 
The prospects are good, to say the least. A man- 
ager will probably be elected in the near future, by 
the student body as a whole, it is hoped.

ience will be greatly appreciated by the students in 
this dormitory. 

Workmen have been engaged during the past two 
weeks fitting up a room in the basement of Searles 
Science building for the use of students in water 
analysis. This step was made necessary by the con- 
stantly increasing number of students who are tak- 
ing the course, and will serve to give added facilities 
to the work in the Chemical Department.

note to the eft'cct that a theme was handed in to 
"Professor Wilmot B. Mitchell." Truly there was 
nothing remarkable about this statement. It should, 
however, have said "Wilnot," but in the vagaries 
of proof-co reeling this was corrected where it 
should not have been. Hence, we do not blame you 
if you did not "see the point." 

.\ valuable and interesting gift has lately been

Definite arrangements have been made for the 
Dramatic Club to play at Belfast, Maine, next Fri- 
day, December 13, and at Camden on the following 
e\'ening. The club will probably leave here Friday 
forenoon. Rehearsals are being held every evening, 
and this schedule will continue until the club leaves 
on its trip. It is hoped that those members of the 
club who were in danger of being dropped on 
account of wa nings, will be able to continue in the 
caste. There are several prospective dates for the 
club, but nothmg definite can be announced at 


At llie meeting of the football team Tuesday, 
Commins, '10, was elected captain for next year. 
He is a Somerville High School man and captained 
the eleven there. This year is the second in which 
he has been on the eleven here. He will probably 
be able to influence good football men from the 
vicinity of Boston to come to Bowdoin. With him 
to lead the team there is every hope for another 
championship next fall.

CLASS OF 1861 
The scholarly and interesting paper on the 
Separation of Maine from Massachusetts, 
read in part before the Massachusetts Histor- 
ical Society last June by Edward Stanwood, 
Litt.D., has appeared 'in print with the sub- 
title, "A study of the growth of public ophi- 
ion, 1784-1820." Its forty pages form a most 
valuable contribution to the history of the 
author's native State. 

CLASS OF 1863 
Rev. Dr. Newman Smyth has announced

^L\KEs First Trip This Week — Play and 

This week the Dramatic Club makes its 
lirst trip. Last night it played in Brooks, 
to-niglit it is to be in Belfast and to-morrow 
night in Camden. The play being produced 
is a football story entitled "Halfback Sandy." 
Following is a brief summary of the plot of 
the story : 

Sandy Smith is the cousin of Philip Krop, 
whose father, Josiah Krop, owns a farm 
where Sandy works. The elder Krop ille- 
gally possessed himself of Sandy's inherit- 
ance when Sandy's father died. With this 
money he also sends his son Philip to Queens- 
town College. This college has a great rival 
in Kingston College which is situated at the 
other end of the same city. As Sandy is a 
great halfback Philip Krop, manager of the 
Queenstown team, and Kenneth Sumner, 
manager of the Kingston team, are both 
trying to win him, each for his own college. 
Krop tries by the aid of a chum of his. Bill 
Short, who is disguised as a girl, to get 
Sandy to come to Queenstown out of- love for 
this supposed lady. Sumner enlists the aid 
of Sue, a darkey girl, a friend of Sandy's, 
and McReady, dramatic instructor at Kings- 
ton, but the deciding influence in favor of 
Kingston is Mabel Sumner, Kenneth's sister, 
with whom Sandy is in love, but who is 
engaged to Philip Krop. Here the first act 

In the second act the second great game 
between the two colleges since Sandy entered 
Kingston, is approaching. Sandy is in debt 
and unhappy. In a final attempt to get him 
to Kingston Phil Krop, disguised as Sue, and 
Bill Short, also in the guise of a girl, gxD to 
his room. Phil's plan is successful and he has 
almost persuaded Sandy to leave Kingston, 
when Mabel appears, fleeing from a drunken 
student. She acknowledges her love for 
Sandy, so Phil's plan fails. As a last resort 

Phil and Bill lie in wait for Sandy in his 
room, seize him as he enters, and carry him 
bound and gagged to an unused room in one 
of the college buildings. Thus ends the sec- 
ond act. 

The next day is the day of the game. 
Sandy is absent and the first half ends with 
the score 6-0 in favor of Queenstown. 
Between the halves Mabel and the real Sue, 
to whom Bill Short gave the key to Sandy's 
hiding place, mistaking her for Phil, chance 
to discover where he is hid and release him. 
He plays in the second half, winning the game 
for Kingston, 12-6. Sue, who has caught 
Philip Krop and locked him into the room 
where Sandy was, after the game brings him 
out. He acknowledges who he is. Mabel 
breaks her engagement with him and all ends 
happily for the hero. 

The following men were taken on the trip: 

Sandy Smith H. M. Smith, '09 

Josiah Krop Marsh, '09 

Philip Krop Stephens, '10 

Bill Short Simmons, '09 

Dick Hart Atwood, '09 

Kenneth Sumner Donnell, '08 

Van Twiller Hovey, '09 

Gordon Davie, '10 

Mabel Sumner Pearson, '11 

Fleetwood Chandler, '08 "^ 

Sue Burton, '09 

Professor Dryden Marsh, '09 

McReady Stone, '10 

Students — Cox, '08 ; Rich, '09 ; Sturtevant, 
'09 ; Brewster, '09. 

Timberlake, '09, is manager, and R. D. 
Morss, '10, Assistant Manager. Sturtevant 
is property man. 

The club left Thursday morning and will 
not return till Sunday or Monday. Miss 
Curtis, the coach, will accompany^ the i)arty. 

If this trip ^fs successful there is hope of 
another and perhaps two more trips after tlie 
Christmas vacation. The club has done 
remarkably well his year considering _ the 
number of changes which the Faculty have 
obliged them to make. We wish them all 
possible success. 




At the meeting of the Christian Associa- 
tion on December 5, President Purington 
reported for the various committees. Sturte- 
vant, '09, was elected treasurer in place of 
Cole, who has left college for a while. Miss 
Evelyn Stetson sang a soprano solo. The 
speaker of the evening was C. C. Robinson, 
"oo, the State Y. M. C. A. Student Secre- 
tary. He spoke upon- "A Satisfactory Col- 
lege Life," taking as his text his favorite line 
from the Bible, "He satisfieth the longing 
soul." Among other things he said that a 
man should get from a satisfactory college 
life enough culture and vocational training so 
that he need not be obliged to drift about for 
two or three years after leaving college with- 
out being able to earn a living. The college 
man must realize that all education does not 
come from schools. Many self-educated peo- 
ple can put to shame a college graduate in the 
very accomplishments upon which he prides 
himself. The statement so often made that 
the four years spent in college are the four 
best years of a man's life, is not true. Each 
year ought to be better than the last. Col- 
lege life is more than honors, more than ath- 
letics, more than studies. It is the time when 
a man should be forming his character. Col- 
lege is a good place for a man to get estab- 
lished in his religious faith and to act upon 
it. A man should bring his religion to col- 
lege, not leave it at home. The world is 
more and more demanding that kind of char- 
acter which a man forms by leading a Christ- 
ian life in college. At college there are many 
chances for social service, or "interest in an 
effort for one's associates," and a life of 
social service is a satisfactory life.

The Massachusetts Cl,ub held its second 
meeting of the year at the Delta Kappa Epsi- 
lon House last Saturday evening. Professor 
Foster gave a most interesting informal talk 
upon some evils connected with life here at 
Bowdoin and the ways in which they could 
be remedied and more men be induced to 
come here. He made suggestions with 
regard to curing some of the faults of our 
present "rushing" system. For instance, he 
suggested a plan somewhat similar to the 
plan used at Amherst by which the fraterni- 
ties are pledged not to give a new man any 
bid or come to any understanding with him 
until the second Monday of the fall term. He 
strongly condemned anything in the way of 
"combines" in college or class elections such 
as are so much of an evil here at present. He 
mentioned a plan which has been suggested 
of having a college council composed wholly 

of students and elected by the whole student 
body, which should take the place of the Jury 
and perhaps of the Inter-fraternity Council. 
This board should be the means of commu- 
nication between the undergraduates and the 
Faculty. It should be of a positive nature, 
not negative as was the Jury; that is, it 
should aim to make improvements, not sim- 
ply punish offenders against college rules. 
This Council would also take charge of, or 
oversee, the fixing of all dates for college 
activities, in order that there may be as few 
conflicts as possible. 

Professor Foster outlined another plan 
which is designed to draw more students to 
Bowdoin. As we all know what a fine place 
this college is, all that is necessary to bring 
more men to it, is to spread this knowledge. 
The plan is to have a rally just before spring 
vacations where every man can obtain cata- 
logues and bulletins describing Bowdoin's ad- 
vantages. Each one shall also take some 
blanks to fill out with the names of 
prospective students, their schools, tastes, 
proficiency in studies, ability to pay their col- 
lege expenses, and other information which 
shall gjide the committee on relations with 
preparatory schools in sending out literature. 
If every man did his share in this work by 
visiting his own preparatory school next 
spring, we should soon see Bowdoin a college 
of the size she ought to be, with all her inter- 
ests well supported without all the work be- 
ing done by a few as at present. As the ob- 
ject of the Massachusetts Club is to get more 
Bay State men to come to Bowdoin, each 
member of the club should make an individ- 
ual effort to secure the names of prospective 


Mrs. Leslie A. Lee has established a fund 
in memory of her son, to be known as the 
Richard Almy Lee Scholarship. This schol- 
arship which covers in full the tuition of one 
student is to be awarded preferably to some 
member of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity. 

Mr. Benjamin F. Morrison of Medford, 
Massachusetts, grandfather of John Franklin 
Morrison, has established a scholarship, to be 
awarded preferably to a student from Med- 
ford, Massachusetts.

The College 

Once again the Orient 

Newspaper "}'''''' to remind the col- 
•^ lege world that we are the 
college paper and to request that items of par- 
ticular college interest should receive publica- 
tion first in these columns. It seems only fair 
that such bits of news as schedules, gifts to 
the college, additions to the librarj' and art 
collections, which are items particularly for 
the college world, should appear first in the 
columns of the Orient. We desire to 
acknowledge with pleasure that the recently 
organized Press Club has agreed to respect 
this privilege, and that such items as these 
will not be sent to the daily papers until 
the Orient has published them. We desire 
to ask all the college if it will not take partic- 
ular care to respect this request. Not only 
to the students, but particularly to the faculty 
also, do we address this. We ask that such 
items as are of particular college interest and 
do not demand immediate publication be 

given to the Orient before the daily papers. 
For instance, if a gift is given to Bowdoin, or 
some picture to the Art Building, or books to 
Library, may we not have "the right to 
announce this first? Also plans for new 
courses, announcements of prizes, etc., we 
trust will be given to the public first through 
the Orient. We realize that in general this 
ha.s been the practice and acknowledge the 
.'^anie. We onlv desire to remind. 

Bowdoin a ' '^^'"'^^ ''^'"^ ,'" Bowdoin at 

Family College Pf '^^"^ thirty-one nieii 
who are the sons of Bow- 
doin men, besides several who are grandsons, 
brothers and cousins. Of the thirty-one, nine 
are in igoS, seven in 1909, four in 1910, and 
eleven in 191 1. These figures bear out the 
statement so often made that Bowdoin is a 
family college. All Bowdoin alumni, where- 
ever they are, intend to do as the second verse 
of "Bowdoin Beata" says and "send their sons 
to Bowdoin in the fall." The more of these 
Bowdoin men by inheritance there are here, 
the better it will be, for they cannot but be 
filled with the traditions and respect for our 
Alma Mater of which the older alumni think 
so much. .\ny man reared on Bowdoin lore 
must have in a marked degree love for old 
Bowdoin, so we gladly welcome among us 
the eleven new men among these sons of 
Bowdoin's sons. 


The editor desires to call attention once 
more to the competition for positions on the 
Editorial Board of the paper. The contest 
has been permitted to grow lax during the 
past few issues, but notice is now given that 
the work must be steadily maintained during 
the winter term. There are eleven more 
issues of the Orient in this volume and the 
contest will continue in ten of these. It must 
be stated that the work of the Sophomores in 
the contest has been very good, but no Fresh- 
man has as yet done the work required for 
membership, and unless the members from 
tliis class brace up, there will be the peculiar 
condition of no Freshman qualifying himself 
for the board at all ! From now on the con- 
test must be kept up regularly. We desire to 
notify candidates that each man should make 
eft'ort to see the Editor at least by iMonday of 
each week and receive assignments for news 
write-ups. Competitors should remember 



that three editorials are required from each 
man. In particular, remember that the 
Orient is a nezvspaper and quantity and the 
value of items as news should always be con-

On last Friday night in the Deutscher 
\ erein Room at the Hubbard Library, the 
Hon. Augustus F. Moulton, of Portland, 
delivered a very intersting and scholarly 
paper before the members of the Ibis, on 
"Anne Hutchinson, the Savonarola of Bos- 
ton." The author described the condition of 
life in the earliest days of the Massachusetts 
Bay Colony, and the political and religious 
aspects of the times, both in America and in 
England. He then outlined the nature of the 
doctrines that Anne Hutchinson expounded 
and showed the profound effect that these 
had upon the colony. Fie showed how Anne 
Hutchinson herself was a woman who main- 
tained her womanly modesty and decorum 
throughout all the excitement of her trial. 
Mr. Moulton further showed how Anne 
Hutchinson was the first to declare the doc- 
trine of liberality of thought to the Puritans. 
Fle pointed out how though she had undoubt- 
edly received unfair and harsh treatment, it 
is justified when we consider the political 
uncertainty of the time, and the exceedingly 
precarious position in which the colony itself 
was situated during the first experimental 
years. A discussion followed the reading of 
the paper. 


Last Monday evening the Deutscher 
Verein met and organized for the year. The 
club was entertained at New Meadows Inn 
by Prof. George T. F'iles. After the banquet 
a short business meeting was held, in which 
the following officers were elected : E. Talbot 
Sanborn, '08, Vorsitzender ; Jasper J. Stahl, 
'09, Schriftwart. Two committees were 
appointed, one on entertainments consisting 
of Delavina, '08 ; Yeaton, '08 ; and Cushing, 



'09; the other on literary programs, consist- 
ing of Prof. G. T. Files, A. Robinson, '08, 
Fairclough, 'oS, and Jackson, '09. New By- 
Laws were adopted by tlie Verein this year, 
which provides that in the future only Sen- 
iors and Juniors with the necessary qualifica- 
tions be admitted to membership. The fol- 
lowing were men initiated at this meeting: 
Parker, 'o3 ; C. Robinson, '08 ; Leavitt, '08 ; 
Bower, '09. The other members of the 
Verein this year are now as follows : San- 
born, '08; A. Robinson, '08; Brigham, '08; 
Yeaton, '08 ; Delavina, 'oS ; Lee, '08 ; Fair-

game with Dartmouth. It is hoped that 
Bowdoin will be able to play them, for a 
Ganadian college team would be a great

NO. 20 


On Sunday, December 15, but two days 
after President Hyde's return from Europe, 
the college was suddenly cast into gloom by 
the sad death of Edward Temple Pickard, 
1910. This death made the fourth among our 
undergraduates since last Commencement, but 
it was the first to occur on the campus, and 
the feeling of sorrow among Bowdoin men 
for their lost college-mate, needed no further 
expression than the unanimous attendance at 
the sad funeral held in the chapel on the 
Tuesday following the decease. 

Edward T. Pickard came to Bowdoin in the 
fall of 1906 from the Newton High School, 
near his home at Auburndale, Mass. He 
joined the Delta Kappa Epsilon Fraternity, 
was a member of the Mandolin Club, and last 
spring was elected Assistant i\Ianager of the 
Varsity Tennis Team. He was always a jolly 
comrade, and in the fraternity, class, and col- 
lege his loss is greatly felt. He was not taken 
seriously ill until the Thursday preceding his 
death, he was put to bed in his fraternity 
house, and, on Saturday, was operated upon 
for peritonitis, from which he died on Sunday 
evening. His mother and grandfather were 
here, but his father and sister could not reach 
him. The two latter arrived on Monday, and 
on Tuesday the simple funeral services were 
held which will live long in the memories of 
all our undergraduates. 

A short service was first held in the library 
of the Delta Kappa Epsilon house, where only 
members of the Fraternity were present. The 
service was led by Professor K. C. M. Sills, 
who read a few verses from the Bible, and a 
few stanzas of poetry selected for the occa- 
sion. The casket was taken from the house 
to the chapel, where the who'e college formed 
and marched in double file, by classes, to their 
usual forms, after wli'ch the casket was borne 
by Pickard's fraternity delegation to a place 
before the pulpit. A violin solo was then 
beautifully rendered by F. E. Kendrie, "10, 
following which. Prof. Henry L. Chapman 
read a short passage from the Bible, and 
addressed to the students a simple, short talk, 
long to be remembered by all present. 

After these exercises, the college rendered 

its last tribute to their comrade, by forming 
again by twos, and marching bareheaded to 
the railroad. The Seniors went first, fol- 
lowed by the Juniors and Freshmen, then by 
the Sophomores who immediately preceded 
the casket, which in turn was followed by the 
fraternity, and the carriages bearing the fam- 
ily to the station. At the railroad crossing, 
the lines of students divided, allowed the 
hearse, the fraternity, and the family to pass 
quietly between them to the station. From 
there, six members of the Fraternity accom- 
panied the family to Pickard's home in 
Auburndale, where, on Wednesday, they 
acted as pall-bearers at the funeral held at the 
house of the grandfather, Mr. E. L. Pickard. 
whose death in California last week it is the 
Orient's sad duty to chronicle. 

At the first funeral there were received 
from the Sophomore Class, and from several 
fraternities, flowers which were deeply appre- 
ciated by the family and friends of Pickard, 
all of whom expressed before leaving Bruns- 
wick, their sincerest thanks for the sympathy 
and attention which was proferred them here 
on every hand. 


In spite of the entire absence of fiction the 
November Quill is readable throughout. The 
opening article with the paradoxical title, 
"The Usefulness of the Useless," is a fresh, 
thought-stirring treatment of the old theme 
with which each successive generation grap- 
ples in its turn, the antithesis of the immedi- 
ate and the d'stant goal ; of the practical as 
defined in terms of bread and butter and 
money-getting, and c,'c really practical, as the 
ins'ght of broadening experience identifies it 
with v\ ell-rounded manhood and the largest 
satisfactions life can offer. The numerous 
illustrations drawn from daily college life 
show how necessary it is to worry the student 
out of the narrow view by the prodding of 
insistent requirements, and they suggest, too, 
the travail of soul through wh'ch alone the 
birth of larger manhood comes. Here is a 
chance for the undergraduate to see himself 
as the alumnus sees him. 



Of the three short poems "Nature Music" 
gives melodious utterance to a mood natural 
to a lover of the forest to whom the sea's 
mig'hty harmonies are mysterious and fear- 
some. An equally devoted lover of the sea 
would hear inspiring music in its winds and 
waves, and shrink with dread, perhaps, from 
the gloom of the forest, instead of hearing 
"the silence sing," and listening with gladness 

"The noises that wild creatures make. 
More still than silence is." 

But with all this sensitiveness to the charm 
of nature in some of her myriad aspects, the 
human outlook at the close of this little poem 
is dreary. 

"Revelation" tells the story of normal spir- 
itual growth, out of unthinking acceptance of 
tradition, through rash rejection of all creeds, 
to the "deeper trust" as assured conviction 
that somewhere there is more than man. In 
next to the last line the change of "was" to is 
would be an improvement. 

The brief musing entitled "Pemaquid" 
plays about the mystery which historic ruins 
enshrine for the questioning mind. 

Number IV. of the "Notes on Works of 
Art in the Bowdoin Collections" is of special 
interest, for the bulk of it is given to Corot's 
landscape, "Near Ville d'Aveay," which ranks 
as "the finest as well as the most popular easel 
picture in the college collections." The Quill 
is doing a good service in calling attention to 
our art treasures and making them better 
known. The reproduction of this Corot is 
excellent, the account of the genius and man- 
ner of the painter is illuminating, and the 
charming glimpse afforded of the donors of 
both the Walker Art Building and many of its 
works of art will enhance the enjoyment of 
their gifts. 

In Stevenson's "Child's Garden of Verses" 
copious quotations, framed in by brief notes 
comment and appreciation, reveal the simoje 
grace and fascination of Stevenson's muse. 
No writer has come so close to the heart of 
the child in his innocent and exuberant imag- 
inings, and in the writer of this essay Steven- 
son has found a sympathetic interpreter. 

The longest article in the number is the 
sketch of "Quebec, Past and Present," a pleas- 
ing composite of history and description, made 
vivid apparently by a recent visit. The nat- 
ural and architectural beauty of this old city, 
the heroic deeds there performed, and the 
quaint simplicity of life in a town "left behind 

in the march of progress," are all dwelt upon 

with painstaking care. The most obvious 
blemish is the distorted forms of several 
proper names which eluded the vigilance of 
the proof-reader. 

"Ye Postman," who inadvertently speaks 
of the "alumni pages" of the Vassar Miscel- 
lany, with his gleanings from college ex- 
changes enables his readers to sample the pas- 
sion and pathos of the rising generation of 
poets and see new pictures in love's kaleido- 
scope, thus closing a number that keeps well 
up to the Quill's standard in interest and

For several years attempts have been made 
to form a fencing club at Bowdoin, with the 
ultimate hope of having a team to meet those 
throughout the State. This year, by the gen- 
erosity of the college, and the kindness of Dr. 
Whittier, the Seniors will be able to have the 
best possible instruction. For Mr. Charles D. 
White of the Pianelli Fencing Club of z-\ugusta 
has been engaged to meet those members who 
are interested in this art, at the Gymnasium 
from 8 to II every Saturday night. This 
arrangement will continue as long as there is 
sufficient interest among the students, and 
there now is a good prospect of getting duals 
with several teams throughout Maine, a letter, 
asking for. a date, having already been 
received from the Bangor Y. M. C. A. This 
opportunity is a rare one for Bowdoin, so let 
every Senior be at the Gymnasium next Satur- 
day night to help make the team a success. 


The first College Tea of the year takes 
place this afternoon from four to six o'clock 
in Alumni Room, Hubbard Hall. It will be 
for the students and the people of Brunswick, 
as usual. All students, especially Freshmen, 
are cordially invited to attend. 


The first Junior Assembly will be held to- 
night in Memorial Hall. The patronesses 
will be Mrs. Flyde, Mrs. Foster, Mrs. A. 
Johnson and Mrs. Baxter. Music will be 
furnished by Kendrie's Orchestra and refresh- 
ments by Given.

CUSS OF 1910 

Once more the Class of Nineteen Hundred 
and Ten has experienced sorrow in the death 
of one of its members : Edward Temple Pick- 
ard, our beloved classmate, has been called to 
the home of the Father. In his death both 
college and class have lost a worthy, esteemed 
member. He was one whose character and 
conduct were pure, whose happy nature made 
him loved by all who knew him, and whose 
life was one of service to his fellows. In 
classes and in sports w^e shall miss his smiling 
presence ; his death makes a void which time 
can only lessen. Though our loss is bitter, 
yet we are thankful for the privilege of having 
had him with us thus far in our college 
course. He was a true Bowdoin man, an hon- 
ored classmate, and a sincere friend. 

Whereas, It has pleased the Father of our 
spirits in His infinite wisdom to take unto 
Himself the soul of our brother, Edward Tem- 
ple Pickard, we, the members of Theta Chap- 
ter of Delta Kappa Epsilon, reverently sub- 
mit to his Good Will. But it is not without 
the keenest pain that we contemplate his loss. 
His life among us was one of gentle com- 
radeship. His mild, genial nature and re- 
proachless character will always remain a 
blessed memory. In our sorrow we would 
not forget tliose who were bound to him by 
ties stronger even than those that bound us 
together in our college family. 

The fraternity wishes to express its grati- 
tude for the sincere sympathy shown us by 
the college community in our sorrow.

The catalogue for 1907-1908 was issued last Mon- 
day. The total number of students is 394. Of these 
93 are in the Medical School sjnd 305 in the Academic 
Department. These are divided as follows : Seniors, 
31; Juniors, 58; Sophomores, 72; Freshmen, 118; 
Specials, 23. There are two graduate students. A 
new plan has been adopted of putting after the 
names of those students, who have not their class 
standing and whose names, consequently, appear in 
the list of some other class, their own class numerals. 

The entrance requirements have been changed in 
that 28 points instead of 26 are now required for 
admission, but to balance this English counts 6 
instead of 4 points. The French and German depart- 
ments have appended to their requirements lists of 
boot s which they recommend be used in preparatory 
schools A new course, Mathematics 9 and 10, has 
been added. This is a course in Advanced Algebra 
for men who do not wish to take up the higher 
forms of Mathematics.

Seven will always be remembered as a year 
of great sadness. It is this one fact that is 
distinctly prominent when we look back on 
what the past year at college has meant. 
Four undergraduates who were with us a year 
ago have passed away. Because the weeks 
have slipped by so quickly, it is by no means 
true that the memory of these fellows is sink- 
ing with each day rapidly into the past. On 
the contrary in the hearts of all the members 
of Bowdoin will there ever remain implanted 
the well-loved memory of those four college 
mates who departed forever from us in 1907. 
In the college in general the year Nineteen 
Seven was prosperous. A large class was 

graduated in June, and the largest Freshman 
Class we have ever had is beginning to learn 
a little of what it means to be Bowdoin men. 
Bowdoin was granted $50,000 by the General 
Educational Board towards the raising of 
$250,000, a distinct honor to the college as 
this is the first time money has been given in 
New England and Bowdoin was selected with 
Yale as being a worthy institution. Of the 
required sum the college has raised approxi- 
mately $100,000, which with the gift of Car- 
negie last month of $50,00 more, makes about 
$50,000 yet to be secured. The year has fur- 
ther shown that the scientific side of the cur- 
riculum is at last receiving the attention it 
desrves. New courses in mechanical drawing, 
surveying and geometry are offered and if in 
the years to come the college is to broaden 
its curriculum, the universal demand now is 
that these lines be given the increase. Pres- 
ident Hyde is again with us, and much 
improved in health. 

In athletics nineteen-seven has certainly 
been a banner year. It is trite for the Orient 
to recall again our two championships, unde- 
feated in any campionship contest by any col- 
lege in the State, both football and baseball, 
and that our baseball team won a victory from 
Harvard! That Bowdoin has begun to take 
a broader view in athletics this year is shown 
us in recalling that for the first time a Bow- 
doin team travelled beyond New England and 
attained notable victories in New York. In 
tennis we had our share of success, winning 
one championship in the Maine tournament. 
In track only did we lack success, losing the 
State Meet by but one point. In other col- 
leo'e interests the year was well for the college. 
We won two intercollegiate debates. 

If there were anything particular to be men- 
tioned for the coming year we would but reit- 
erate the oft-expressed sentiments : That the 
courses along scientific lines will be increased 
leading ultimately towards an engineering 
course ; that in athletics the college will take 
a broader outlook and strive to gain more of 
a place in the State. Our successes of the 
past year make this year a particularly oppor- 
tune time for the broadening of our athletic 
horizon, that for undergraduates may the 
influences that tend towards the greatest dem- 
ocratic spirit gain force. It would even be an 
Orient wish that the present year see the ini- 
tiation of a movement towards founding a 
Bowdoin Union. These statements may seem 
ideal or nearly worn out. They are meant 
but for the summing up of a few of those 



conditions which we all hope to some time see 
at Bowdoin. We saw improvements in 1907; 
may every Bowdoin man, by real love and 
la,bor for his college, try to make the coming 
year of 1908 a year of honor and profit for his 
Alma Mater.

AnotherWay f^^j, j^onotonous if we 

to Look at It gj^^^^j^ f^ijQ^^ -^ jl^g foot- 
steps of our editorial predecessors and write 
an editorial in regard to chapel "wooding"' 
again. The Orient has criticized and criti- 
cized, and we must confess with only a mini- 
mum of result. But there is one other way of 
looking at this. Last year through the Inter- 
fraternity Council all the fraternities voted 
to eliminate this feature of chapel. Now did 
it ever occur to you that when a man kicks a 
steam pipe during a prayer he is not only 
exhibiting himself as an ungentlemanly boor 
— a title which in itself would appear to have 
but little effect in some fellows — but he is also 
publicly disgracing his fraternity and adver- 
tising to his associates that he holds his soci- 
ety, and what rules it may make, in utter con- 
tempt? This is the way the Orient cannot 
help regarding this feature. It is not just the 
individual but the fraternity as well that is 
disgraced. It would be well for some of the 
lower classmen to think in this way. 


On Friday evening, December 20, the Bowdoin 
Chapter of the Alpha Delta Phi gave over its Chap-

dance was held in Pythian Hall, Brunswick, after 
which a "spread" was held at the house. The 
patronesses for the occasion were Mrs. Franklin C. 
Robinson, Mrs. William A. Moody, Mrs. Charles C. 
Hutchins, and Mrs. Arthur C. Gibson. The com- 
mittee in charge consised of Fisk, chairman, Clif-

Much humorous comment has been prevalent about 
college of late over the notice that has been travel- 
ling the rounds of the daily papers to the effect that 
'■Robert A. Toothaker is to coach baseball at Bow- 
doin." As a fact he is not coaching baseball. This 
mistake is easily explainable, when we consider that 
Mr. Toothaker is coaching not the baseball team, 
but is musical director of the Minstrels, which is 
given for the benciit of the baseball team. There 
is no doubt that "Bob" could coach baseball if he had 
the opportunity, and could teach us something at 
that ! But "Bob" is putting in all his spare time 
and work, too, for Bowdoin now in directing our 
show, and we certainly are appreciative of what he 
is doing ! 

The chapel service Sunday was conducted by Pres- 
ident Hyde. He spoke briefly saying that he thought 
the college was not receiving as much benefit from 
the college preachers as it should. He said that 
unless the students enter into the church work they 
will not see any benefit to be derived from it. He 
used as an example the statement of Mr. Wright, the 
inventor of flying machines, who said that lie used to 
watch the birds for hours to see how to fly, but he 
could not understand. After he had worked out for 
himself the theory of flight he then saw that tlie 
birds flew in the same way. President Hvde said 
that it was the same with church work. After the 
students work for themselves they will understand 
better the college preachers. After the talk Mrs. 
Thompson sang a solo. 

At the meeting of the Maine State Board of 
Health which was held at the State House, Tuesday 
forenoon and afternoon, the secretary reported that 
in a series of papers in one of the leading public 
health journals of Germany, an Austrian military 
commission in Vienna had carried on an elaborate 
series of experiments for the purpose of determining 
the most efficient processes for disinfection with 
formaldehyde, and had reported that, as compared 
with other methods, including some which had with- 
in the last few months been reported on favorably in 
some of the government laboratories in that country, 
tlie permanganate method worked out and made 
available to the public and to health officers by the 
State Board of Health of Maine is preferable to all 
other methods. — Kennebec Journal. 

The above clipping is of particular interest to Bow- 
doin men as the method referred to above is that 
which was discovered and developed practically in 
the chemical laboratories of Bowdoin College, by 
Prof. F. C. Robinson.

CLASS OF 1841 

George Albert Thomas, son of Elias and 
Elizabeth (Widgery) Thomas, was born 16 
September, 1819, at Portland, Maine. He was 
prepared for college at the Portland Academy. 
After graduation, he studied law in the office 
of Judge Howard (Bowdoin, 1821), and was 
admitted to the Cumberland Bar. He never, 
however, practiced his profession to any 
extent. Early in 1850 he went to CaUfornia, 
where he remained five years, being occupied 
in mining most of the time. On his return to 
Portland he was engaged for a short time in 
the land warrant business, and subsequently 
in care of the family real estate. Soon after 
the great fire of 1866, he moved to the well- 
known house on Danforth Street which, with 
his sister. Miss Charlotte Thomas, as its mis- 
tress, became known as the "Social Corner," 
and for half a century was one of the centers 
of the musical and social life of the city. 

I\'Ir. Thomas' Commencement part was on 
the Fine Arts and to one of them, music, he 
was enthusiastically devoted throughout his 
long life. For twenty years he was musical 
director at St. Stephen's Church. Early inter- 
ested and active in the anti-slavery move- 
ment, his part in public was to sing the songs 
of liberty. In private life he was a successful 
conductor in the underground railway by 
v\hich many a slave gained his freedom. His 
jovial nature and skill and power as a vocalist 



made him a welcome guest at alumni ban- 
quets. The loss of eyesight which came to 
him in later life did not chill the kindly, cheer- 
ful spirit which marked his earlier years. To 
the last he was a good, earnest and unselfish 
man. His death, the result of an attack of la 
grippe, occurred 20 December, 1907. Mr. 
Thomas never married. 

CLASS OF 1846 

Frederic Dummer Sewall, son of General 
Joseph Sewall, was born at Bath, Me., 22 Jan- 
uary, 1S46. After graduating with honor he 
studied law and practiced his profession for a 
time in his native city. At the outbreak of 
the Civil War he entered the service as Cap- 
tain and Assistant Adjutant-General on the 
staff of General O. O. Howard, and was dis- 
charged for promotion in June, 1862, and 
commissioned Colonel of the 19th Maine 
Infantry A-^olunteers in July, 1862, and mus- 
tered in as such on August 25, 1862, and dis- 
charged as Colonel of the 19th Maine Febru- 
ary 23, 1863, by reason of disability. He was 
appointed Colonel of the Regiment Veteran 
Reserve Company in June of 1863 and was 
mustered out of service as Brevet Brigadier 
General of Volunteers, January, 1868. The 
principal engagements he was in during the 
war were the siege of Yorktown thirty days. 
Fair Oaks and Front of Richmond, on stafif 
duty with Generals Howard, Sumner and 
Burnside, with the 19th Maine. He was com- 
mander of the brigade in defense of Washing- 
ton and in front of Alexandria, from Decem- 
ber, 1863, to July, 1864. He was commander 
of District of Annapolis from February, 1865, 
to September 18 of the same year, when the 
Military District was dissolved. He was 
president of Court Martial and other detached 
service from September, 1865, to March, 1866, 
when he was ordered to staff of General How- 
ard as acting inspector- general and served 
until January of 1868. 

Since the war he has been special internal 
revenue agent at the office of the Internal 
Revenue Department in Washington and Bos- 
ton, and was one of the highly respected and 
efficient officials in the department. His 
death, from heart failure, occurred at Boston, 
16 December, 1907. 

CLASS OF 1848 

John Dinsmore, son of Thomas and Sally 

(Houghton) Dinsmore, was born 21 April, 

1821, at Anson, Maine. He was prepared for 

college in the academies at Bloomfield, Gor- 

ham, and Yarmouth. After graduation he 
, taught for a year in Industry, Me., and stud- 
ied theology at Bangor Seminary. In 1852 
he became pastor of the Congregational 
Church at North Hampton, N. H. A pastor- 
ate of ten years there was followed by one of 
sixteen at Winslow, Maine. In 1880 he 
removed to Brunswick, and was successively 
acting pastor at Anson and Athens, and 
Harpswell, Maine. Some ten years later he 
took up his residence at Auburn, Me., and 
while not engaged in preaching was an active 
and honored laborer in religious work. In 
1904 he removed to North Harpswell where 
he died 8 December, 1907, of old age. Beside 
a widow, Mr. Dinsmore leaves two sons, John 
E. Dinsmore, A.M., of the American Colony 
at Jerusalem ; Nathan C. Dinsmore of Tur- 
ner; and a daughter, Mrs. Althea C. Curtis of 
Harpswell. A wide circle of friends and old- 
time parishioners will long remember his 
earnest, faithful Christian life.

NO. 21 


To the Editor of the Orient: 

I am going to brave the displeasure of my 
college contemporaries of the late Eighties, by 
voicing an impression that I have received 
from two or three visits to the institution 
during the past two years. It is what seemed 
to me to be a distinct raising of the "tone" of 
the college. It seemed to me that the under- 
graduates are more tidy in their dress, more 
courteous and deferential in their manner, 
and more serious-minded in their attitude 
toward their work than they were in our day. 
There is less of what we may call (I hesitate 
to say it) the "rowdy" spirit. As I recollect 
it, there used to be a certain affectation of 
rakishnes sand unkemptness in dress and 
manner that did not sit well. 

Part of this is doubtless due to the increased 
prosperity and wealth of the country and the 
general raising of the standard of living, and 
part of it probably to the unconscious influ- 
ence of the improved physical surroundings — 
the new chapter houses, the grading and beau- 
tification of the quadrangle, and the serene 
and imposing new buildings. But I do not 
believe this explains it all. I cannot but feel 
that there is a new Presence, a clarifying and 
toning-up of the moral, spiritual and intellect- 
ual atmosphere. 

George B. Chandler^ '90. 

Hartford, Conn., Dec. 11, 1907. 


Last Friday evening the first Junior Assem- 
bly was held, and proved to be a great suc- 
cess. The hall was beautifully decorated with 
banners and flags of Bowdoin and other col- 
leges, with a large 1909 banner over the 
entrance. The music for the twenty dances 
was furnished by Kendrie's Orchestra. 
Refreshments were served by Given of 
Brunswick. About forty couples attended, 
including Miss Carrie Johnson of Hallowell, 
Miss Charlotte Hubbard of Wellesley, Mass., 
Miss Lynn Phillips of Rutherford, N. J., Miss 
Gwendolyn Jenkin, Miss Mildred Cotton, Miss 
Esther Wright, Miss Dorothy Wright, Miss

The patronesses were Mrs. Hyde, Mrs. 
Allen Johnson, Mrs. Foster and Mrs. H. C. 

The committee in charge consisted of Heath, 
Brewster, Rich, Burton and Brown. 


Altho we are disappointed that, owing to 
illness, the Rev. Donald Sage Mackay will not 
occupy the pulpit of the college church next 
Sunday, we look forward with pleasure to the 
coming of the Rev. Edward F. Sanderson, 
who will fill the vacancy. It will be remem- 
bered that Mr. Sanderson preached here about 
one year ago and those who heard the sermon 
were much impressed by this rising young 
minister. He is much sought for as a college 
preacher and we are fortunate in having the 
opportunity of listening to him here at Bow- 

Mr. Sanderson studied at Hartford Sem- 
inary and Amherst College and is a man of 
broad views. After graduating from college 
he occupied the Congregational parish at Bev- 
erly, Mass., for one year. He is at present 
in one of the richest and largest parishes in 
New England, the Congregational Church at 
Providence, R. I., where he has a large attend- 
ance of Brown University students every Sun-

An Entire Innovation — A Whirl of Frivolity 

On Wednesday evening, January 22, will 
occur the annual production of the Bowdoin 
Minstrels. The show is given for the benefit 
of the baseball team. For the past two weeks 
a chorus of sixty-five men have been rehears- 
ing faithfully until they have neared the point 
of perfection. The end men, Boyce, Draper, 
Lee, Sheehan, Cox and Smith, led by Bill 
Crowley, have compiled a series of jokes which 
are well in keeping with the strength of the 
performance. For an Olio, such men as Thew- 
lis, handcuff, straight jacket and pillory expert, 
Frank Kendrie with his violin, Burt Morrell 
with his clubs, Mike with his stories, and the 
never failing fun-maker, Boyce, in the new 
role of "Box Car Jimmy," are well able to 
insure the balance and strength of the second 
part of the show. 

The curtain will rise promptly at 8.15, and 
a particular effort has been made to avoid 
tedious waits between the numbers. 

The tickets go on sale at F. P. Shaw's book- 
store on Monday, January 20. It is hoped 
that the student body will turn out to a man, 
thereby supporting the baseball team, and in 
return the management guarantee a first class 
show ! 


As the time draws near for the 1908 Rhodes 
Scholarship examinations the college men of 
Maine are naturally becoming interested in the 
event. This year, in our State, the candidate 
will be chosen from the University of Maine ; 
Bowdoin, Colby and Bates, having each respec- 
tively sent a man to Oxford. The examina- 
tions, known as "Responsions," consist of 
Mathematics, Latin and Greek, and Prose 
Composition, all of an elementary character 
and practically like those required for a college 
entrance examination. The one exception is 
that they require marked proficiency in gram- 

The examinations are not decisive nor do 
they fulfill all requirements ; before choosing 
the candidate, the State committee must con- 
sider in addition, the student's ability for 
leadership, his love for outdoor sports and his 
character and temperament in general. The 
maximum age limit for students is twenty-one 

years, and although the candidates are not 
required to be members of a college, yet in 
the opinion of those Maine men at Oxford, 
it is better to have completed at least two 
years at college before taking up the work 
there. The scholarships entitle the recipient 
to enter any college at Oxford LTniversity. 

At the first issue of the scholarships in 1904, 
the colleges of Maine were given the choice 
of candidates in turn, according to the age 
of the institution. Bowdoin had the honor of 
leading in the person of David R. Porter, '02. 
In 1 910 the examinations are open to the State 
at large irrespective of institutions. 

The scholarship of American students at 
Oxford is of a very high order and they have 
won many of the prizes offered by the admin- 


In the Sunday Chapel President Hyde 
quoted from a speech delivered by Rudyard 
Kipling to the students of Yale University. 
His theme was : 

"Money-making should not be the sole aim 
of anyone's life." 

"If one needed money," he said, "to accom- 
plish his work, he should gather it with his 
left hand and should save his right hand for 
his life work. A man is measured, not by him- 
self, but by what he strives for ; and if a man's 
energies are devoted to accumulating wealth, 
he is generally a small man." 

Kendrie, '10, and Kellogg, '11, rendered a 
beautiful violin duet. 


On ]\Ionday, January 12, the Romania held 
its first meeting at the home of Professor 
Henry Johnson, who explained the purpose of 
the group as commented upon elsewhere in 
this issue. It was decided to meet if possible 
on every other Wednesday evening after the 
fraternity meetings, but that the next meeting 
should be held tonight, Friday, January 17, at 
the home of Professor Brown. Those who 
are to form the group at first are, besides 
Professor Johnson, Professors Brown and 
Sills : Davis, '08 ; Gould, '08 ; Ham, '08 ; Huse, 
'08 ; Ricker, '08 ; Burton, '09 ; Carter, '09 ; 
Gushing, '09 ; Hovey, '09 ; Hurley, '09 ; Marsh, 
'09; and Stahl, '09. Davis, '08, was chosen 




The first meeting of the Christian Associa- 
tion of the New Year was held Thursday even- 
ing, January 9th. Rev. L. S. Coons, '08, 
addressed the members assembled in a lecture 
upon "God's Dependence Upon Man." In 
developing his topic he particularly empha- 
sized the fact that God can do without man 
but does not wish to; that the progress of 
his creation, begun so many centuries ago, 
continues still, ever drawing nearer toward 
an ultimate completion; that he relies upon 
man as an individual to do his part toward this 
achievement of perfection. 


I should like to call to the attention of the 
faculty and the student body the lack of 
interest and perhaps thoughtfulness in regard 
to the raising of the flag on Memorial Hall. 
There were two flags given to the college 
by Edgar O. Achorn, '80, one to be used for 
pleasant days and a smaller one, for stormy 
or windy days. It does not seem in accordance 
with the proper spirit or to be in keeping with 
the agreement under which they were given, 
that the flags should not wave over the build- 
ing erected as a memorial to those who lost 
their lives in the service of their country. 



Soon after the opening of the second semes- 
I ter. Professor Henry Johnson, curator of the 
Walker Art Building, will give a series of 
, talks on the contents of the art building. 
These informal gatherings offer a splendid 
opportunity for men to learn something about 
Bowdoin's fine art collection and the Orient 
sincerely hopes that there will be a large num- 
ber present. These talks are not only a source 
of pleasure, but are of no small value as a part 
of a college man's education. 


It is a matter worth noting that the 
Dramatic Club has made svicli a successful 
trip last month. Three performances were 
given : In Brooks, Belfast and Camden, 
and nothing but praise of the performance and 
the manner in which the members of the club 
conducted themselves, has been heard. Since 
the advent there of 'the club our college has 
risen greatly in the esteem of the residents in 
that part of the State. An organization which 
can gain such a reputation upon its first trip 
deserves the best wishes of the whole college. 
The club has been a success in every way and 
the manager has received many good ofifers 
for other trips. 


All changes in the names on the Room Con- 
tract Book at the Treasurer's Office must be 
made before the First of February. Other- 
wise the Room Rent will be charged to the 
name appearing as signed. 


A regular meeting of the Athletic Council 
was held in Dr. Whittier's office on Monday 
evening. Little more than routine business 
was transacted. The Council approved the 
schedule of games for the Ice Hockey Team, 
and granted permission to the Track Associa- 
tion to be represented at the B. A. A. meet 
by a Relay Team, and in such other events 
as was deemed advisable. The Council offi- 
cially adopted in its By-Laws a clause, making 
managers of all regular athletic teams eligible 
to wear the "B" of their department on hat, 
cap or sweater. Such has formerly been the 
custom, but owing to the loss of records had 
not been regularly adopted before this. Other 
matters were discussed, but no official action 
was taken. 


Not discouraged by the fact that for the past 
three years all the medals called for have been 
gold, the donor renews, this year, his generous 
offer of medals to the debating team — gold if 
they win, silver if they lose, in the debate with 
Syracuse University. 


The Class of '68 Prize speaking will take place 
next Thursday evening, January 23, 1908. The fol- 
lowing is the order of speakers: Joseph A. Davis, 
Albert T. Gould, Arthur H. Ham, George P. Hyde, 
Arthur L. Robinson, Carl M. Robinson. 

The presiding ofiflcer will probably be President 
Hyde. The judges and the subjects of the essays 
have not yet been decided. It is hoped that the 
College Orchestra will furnish the music.

As a self-appointed critic 
Communication the Orient takes it upon 

itself almost too often to 
put before the student-body their short-com- 
ings and errors, and it is with much satisfac- 
tion that they publish herein the communica-

atmosphere of Bowdoin. The Orient is

natures and is particularly glad to present a 
communication of appreciation from an alum- 
nus of the college. 

_ _ . , „ . . It will doubtless be a pleas- 
Be Fair to Bowdorn ^^^.^ ^^ ^j^^ students and 
and the Managers ^^.^^^^^ ^^ Bowdoin Col- 
lege to learn that the football management has 
already secured Ross McClave as football 
coach for the season of 1908. But before the 
undergraduate begins to indulge in dreams 
of the gridiron glories offered by the coming 

season it would be well to turn attention to 
the one that has already closed. As usual in 
all college activities some students were freer 
with their promises than with their actual sup- 
port. As a result unpaid subscription blanks 
are still in the hands of the management. The 
tendency to dodge a manager is fast becom- 
ing a popular fad, but at the same time it is 
a fad that forces an athletic management to 
drag unsettled accounts along for three 
months after the close of the season, and com- 
pels the editing board of a paper to think 
seriously for some way whereby printers can 
be induced to do their work without remunera- 
tion. Aside from this, tlie neglect to properly 
support any legitimate branch of college 
activities is equivalent to a deliberate sacrifice 
of representative interests, for the main way 
in which the present standing of the college 
can be judged, and compared with other insti- 
tutions is by the standing of athletic teams, 
the strength of our debaters, the excellence of 
the college periodicals and the loyalty and hon- 
esty of our undergraduates. 

It seems only a fair thing for tliose men 
who signed in for subscriptions, who reaped 
the advantages of unpaid for season tickets, 
or who still have football togs in their posses- 
sion to come to some terms at once with the 
management. It is high time that all old 
scores were settled and the management left 
free to devote its undivided energies to the 
coming season. 

On Monday evening there 
Tlie Romania met at the house of Pro- 
fessor Henry Johnson, two 
professors and a group of students to start 
an informal organization to be known as the 
Romania. The idea, which is that of Professor 
Johnson, is to form a group where all shall 
act together in seeking to become familiar with 
the current course of politics, religion, art, 
music, or any other phase of the life among 
the Latin races of the world. Americans, 
except when travelling, usually tliink but little 
of the great nations of Europe, and Professor 
Johnson seems to have hit upon the pleasant- 
est and best way of bringing their broadening 
influence home to such Bowdoin men as shall 
be interested in them. The plan formed is for 
each member to follow continuously in current 
periodicals or any other source of information, 
some activity of the European nations, in 
which he may be interested; with the hoped 
for result that each member may, during the 



conversation at a meeting, add something to 
the interest of the evening, as well as merely 
take away something as is the case at our 
many lecture clubs. 

As the group is formed merely for the pur- 
pose of gaining information and of broadening 
the views of the members, there is no fixed 
standard of membership. It is hoped to keep 
the number of student members at about a 
dozen, so as to make it possible to meet in an 
ordinary room, but members are to be admit- 
ted by consent of the group, on application, 
whenever members drop out either by gradua- 
tion or some other cause. That is, it has been 
decided to maintain a waiting list, and anyone 
in college who is interested in the work of the 
group, may by handing his name to the sec- 
retary of the group, Joseph A. Davis, at the 
Theta Delta Chi House, become eligible for 
membership as soon as a vacancy shall occur. 

The whole idea is a new one, and without 
doubt is one which would find a ready response 
in any college community. It is not only a 
privilege for students to come into close infor- 
mal contact with their Professor, as here with 
such men as Professor Henry Johnson, Pro- 
fessor Brown, and Professor Sills, but there 
is afforded an opportunity for a liberal educa- 
tion, that should soon put a. good number on 
the Romania waiting list. 


The Bradbury Prize Debate will take place in 
Memorial Hall on the evening of March lo. The 
question for debate is, Resolved, That aside from 
the question of amending the constitution, the Fed- 
eral Government should exercise further control over 
quasi-public corporations doing interstate business. 
To choose speakers for the Bradbury Debate, pre- 
liminary trials will be held in Hubbard Hall, Wed- 
nesday evening, January 29, at seven o'clock. Each 
speaker will be allowed six minutes. The order of 
speakers will be determined by lot. All students 
intending to compete must hand their names to A. 
L. Robinson, before January 28. 


Monday evening the York County Club held a 
meeting with Ross, '10, at the Psi Upsilon House. 
Most of the members were present and a pleasant 
session was enjoyed. The design for the shingle, 
by Newman, '09, was unanimously adopted. Other 
business was transacted, after which refreshments 
were served. Plans for influencing York County 
men to come to Bowdoin were discussed. 

The next meeting is to be at the Kappa Sigma 
House, January 27.

the students and townspeople. Every Bowdoin man 
should plan to hear "Dave." He was one of the 
most popular students in attendance at the college. 

The Orient is pleased to note the circulation of 
a letter in the college community by the manager 
of the Quill, containing a personal appeal to every 
member of the college to support the paper. The 
matter should be taken to heart by all its readers. 
The question of supporting college organizations and 
activities is one w-hich has always vexed the man- 
agers of those organizations and activities and prob- 
ably will only find its ultimate solution when the 
principal assessments are included with the term 


On account of warm weather the rink has not 
been in suitable condition for hockey practice until

season have been cancelled. The first game to be 
played will probably be with the University of Maine 
in Brunswick on February 15, as the team will not 
be definitely picked and in practice until that time. 
A second, and probably a practice game with Maine, 
will be played on Washington's Birthday in Orono. 

A game with the hockey team of Augusta will 
probably be played at a later date.

A small object among the very rare personal 
memorials of the Bowdoin family has just been given 
to the college by Mrs. Albert Remick of New York. 
It is a funeral ring given to the Rev. Daniel Rogers 
of Boston for officiating, on July 17, 1748, at the 
funeral of Madam Bowdoin, the third wife of the 
first James Bowdoin. The inscription and enameling 
have worn off entirely from the ring which is, in 
shape and substance, of distinctly fine form. 


Believes New Rules Are Successful. 

Below we print Walter Camp's views on football 
as played under this year's rules. As Mr. Camp is 
a member of the Rules Committee, his opinion on 
the matter is worth comment- . 

"When the new rules were first introduced two 
years ago, there were many who contended that it 
was too much to require of any team that they 
should gain ten yards in three downs and the pre- 
diction was that 'no-score' games would put an end 
to the ten-yard rule in short order. The contrary 
has proven true, and already there are those who 
would like to see the forward pass more restricted, 
relying upon it as it was a year ago, or even elim- 
inating it altogether and keeping the on-side kick 
and ten-yard rule. What was needed in the game 
was primarily to lessen the value of possessing the 
ball and this the ten-yard rule achieved. With its 
introduction there went out all the close hammer- 
ing mass plays which were good for two or three 
yards on a down but no more. The American col- 
legian, whether player or spectator, does not care 
for a game in which the element of chance is para- 
mount. He likes to see or play a game where hard 
work counts, and a game where definite planning 
secures a well-appreciated result. For this reason 
he does not care for the unlimited forward pass 
which can now be tried without severe penalty on 
first and second down. Throwing the ball around 
indiscriminately may be the last resort of a weak 
or inferior team and as such is unsatisfactory. 

"In other respects, like the separation of the line 
of scrimmage and the improvement in the general 
conduct and spirit of the play, the rules have fully 
justified themselves and have rendered the game 
more popular than ever." 

Mr. A. M. Goodwin, sporting editor of the Port- 
land Sunday Telegram and a well-known Dartmouth 
man, in an article on summer baseball which 
appeared in the issue of December 29, makes the 
following statement of interest to Bowdoin men: "I 
believe that Bowdoin with its self-regulated system 
of ahletics, practically undictated to by an associa- 
tion, is as near common sense purity in athletics as 
any college in the country, and I do not believe that 
one of fifty Bowdoin men would support the abol- 
ishment of summer baseball."

Annual Appearance of the Show for the Benefit of the 
Baseball Team, in Town Hall, Wednesday Evening 

The great dramatic event of Brunswick for 
the year occurred in the Town Hall on Wed- 
nesday evening, in the Annual Baseball Show, 
presenting the "Bowdoin Minstrels." The 
show was snappy and bright from start to 
finish. The work of the chorus was particu- 
larly fine. The jokes were clean, and the 
Orient is glad to note that they avoided the 
personal tone, which in some years has 
marred the whole minstrel performance so 
much. A large crowd filled the hall and a 
generous sum was realized for the baseball 

Shortly after eight the curtain rose. Fifty 
men in dress suits were seated on bleachers 
on the stage with Crowley, '08, as Interlocutor 
in the centre. On the ends were the six special 
fun-makers, with black faces and grotesque 
costumes. College and fraternity banners 
covered the walk, and a most striking and 
unique setting was given. 

Following the Overture, R. W. Smith ren- 
dered a very catchy coon-song, "Who, Me?" 
Brown followed with a rollicking song, "Colon 
Town," and Draper then sang "Much Obliged 
to You." Stone sang "Yo Ho, Little Girls, Yo 
Ho." The Local Hits by Lee and Shehan 
quite brought down the house. The quartet 
selections were particularly pleasing and enjoy- 
able. Boyce gave a coon-song. The ballad 
by Whitmore, '11, "That's What the Rose Said 
to Me," was most sincerely appreciated by the 
audience, this being the first time that Mr. 
Whitmore's voice has been heard in Bruns- 
wick. The song given by Mr. Cox was one 
of the prettiest and catchiest of the evening, 
and most exceptionally well rendered. There 
certainly was a shout of merriment when 
Tommy Given and his six little girls appeared 
for the finale, giving "So Long Mary" and 
the curtain closed on the first part ! 

Kendrie opened the Olio with a violin selec- 
tion. The audience received his efiforts with 
appreciation and forced him to extend his 
number to several encores. As the next num- 
ber in the Olio "Mike" indicated that as a 

witty story teller he had lost none of the cun- 
ning that distinguished him as reader of the 
Glee Club. 

Joyce, alias "Box Car Jimmy," doubled up 
the audience again and again with his witty 

Those who came with the expectation of 
seeing an ordinary, stereotype club swinging 
act were treated to a decided surprise by Mor- 
rill. The evolutions undertaken by him 
brought well-deserved applause from the 

In closing the Olio Thewlis undertook a 
task never before attempted in a Bowdoin 
minstrel show. He successfully extricated 
himself from all the handcufifs with which he 
was challenged. This number called forth the 
well-deserved admiration of his audience and 
served as a fitting finale for what had proved 
itself a well-balanced and entertaining college 
minstrel show. Following the performance, 
dancing was enjoyed until midnight. 

The hard and conscientious work of Mr. 
Toothaker in directing and overseeing the 
show certainly deserves special mention. 
"Bob" has directed the last three Bowdoin per- 
formances now, and his untiring efiforts, uni- 
versal cheerfulness, original ideas and good 
taste are appreciated by all and account to a 
great degree for the successful Bowdoin per- 
formances. Nor should we forget to render 
credit to Tefift and Webster, the manager and 
assistant manager, who have had all the labor 
and worry for the past two months. The fol- 
lowing was the complete program of the per- 
formance :

[■ The trustees and overseers of the college 
! met in Hubbard Hall Monday afternoon to 
remove technical difficulties in the way of the 
admission of the college to the benefit of the 
Carnegie foundation for the advancement of 
teaching. All the difficulties were removed 
and the way made clear for raising $50,000 
that remains to be procured to secure the 
$200,000 already pledged. The work of rais- 
ing the last $50,000 will now begin in earnest. 
The Board elected Ralph B. Stone, 
instructor in physics and mathematics, for 
one year and Hudson B. Hastings, assistant 
professor of surveying and drawing, for three 
years. They made provision for additional 
instructors in chemistry and biology, thus com- 
pleting the plan adopted last June to strengthen 
the college in mathematics and sciences, that 
a student can take both the A.B. degree at 
Bowdoin and the technical course at an insti- 
tution like tlie M. I. T. by combining four 
years at Bowdoin and two at such an institu- 
tion. The members of the board of trustees 
present were : President William DeWitt 
Hyde, Brtinswick; Rev. John S. Sewall, Ban- 
gor ; Hon. Joshua L. Chamberlain, Bruns- 
wick ; Hon. William L. Putnam, Portland ; 
Gen. Thomas H. Hubbard, New York City; 
Gen. Oliver O. Howard, Burlington, Vt. ; 
Edward Stanwood, Brookline, Mass. ; and 
Hon. L. A. Emery, Ellsworth. 

Of the overseers, the following were pres- 
ent : Hon. Charles F. Libby, Portland; Galen 
C. Moses, Bath ; Rev. Henry F. Harding, Hal- 
lowell ; Dr. Alfred Mitchell, Brunswick ; Rev. 
Jonathan Sewall, Brookline, Mass. ; Dr. Daniel 
A. Robinson, Bangor; James M. Keen, New 
York City; Dr. Frederick H. Gerrish, Port-

At three o'clock, Saturday afternoon the 
third and last of the series of trials to 
determine the men who shall compose 
the B. A. A. Relay Team was held on the 
straight-away between the Kappa Sigma 
House and the Medical Building. Two other 
less important trials had already been held, 
and the average time of each man in all three, 
not his fastest time in one of these trials, 
determined his ability. The men who ran 
were: Anderson, Medic; Colbath, '10; Sim- 
mons, '09; Burton, '09; Stone, '09; Buck, '09; 
Deming, '10; Timberlake, '08; Morss, '10; 
Edwards, '10; Ballard, '10; H. K. Hine, '11; 
Kaulbach, '11; S. W. Pierce, '11; Allen, '11. 

The men who will compose the team are : 
Atwood, Colbath, and Deming. Simmons, 
Stone and Ballard tied for fourth place and 
will run off the tie tomorrow afternoon. As 
has been already announced, the team is to 
run Tufts this year, and from the hard train- 
ing and faithful practice of the men, as well 
as the efficient and experienced coaching of 
Capt. Atwood and Coach Morrell, the team 
ought to win. A good backing by the student 
body should be shown at the meet! Manager 
Brewster announces that he has obtained 
reduced rates of $5.50 for the round-trip 
ticket. These tickets may be purchased at the 
Brunswick station. A good opportunity is 
offered to the Massachusetts men in college — 
those from Boston and the vicinity in par- 
ticular, to visit their homes and to witness 
the meet on the same trip. The team will 
probably take the 11 a.m. train, February i. 

Tickets for the meet may be purchased at 
Mechanics Hall, where it is to be held on the 
evening of February i. The students who 
cannot go can prove their loyalty by writing 
their names on the subscription paper which 
is being circulated to send the team. 


Mr. Edward Stanwood, '61, editor of the 
Youths' Companion, addressed a meeting of 
the Association Monday evening. He spoke 
in regard to a college man's choosing his voca- 
tion and said in brief: 

"Leave the choosing of a profession to time 
and chance. Do not consider college life (as 
formerly was done) an equipment for any 
vocation in particular, but as a means of evolv- 
ing the nature of your life work. Specialize 
afterward if you have the time, money, and 
ability for hard work. A few of the things 
which should be brought into consideration in 
choosing your profession are your tempera- 
ment as an individual, the opportunity which 
is offered you for study, your willingness to 
sacrifice, the scope and chance of your prospec- 
tive profession and the locality in which you 
will employ it. But, above all, your tempera- 
ment and tastes as an individual should gov- 
ern almost exclusively your choice." 

Mr. Stanwood then went on to enumerate, 
in their order of importance, the professions 
with their attractions, advantages, pleasures, 
possibilities and scope. The professions of 
editorial work, ministry, medicine, law, teach- 
ing, librarian and science 'he carefully touched 
upon and reviewed. 

The largest attendance of the year was 
shown at this meeting, over a hundred men 
being present. 


The Romania held its second meeting last 
Monday, at the home of Prof. E. W. Brown 
on Federal street. A pleasant evening was 
passed in the discussion of Papal and French 
politics, the Italian opera singers of the day, 
and many other topics concerning modern 
Europe. It was decided to hold the next 
meeting soon after .the opening of the second 
semester. Those present were : Prof. H. John- 
son, Prof. Brown, Prof. Sills, Davis, '08; 
Gould, '08 ; Ham, '08 ; Huse, '08 ; Ricker, '08 ; 
Carter, '09; Cushing, '09; Hurley, '09; and 
Stahl, '09.

In accordance with our 
Shop Work often repeated policy that 

Bowdoin should devote the 
broadening of its course along scientific lines, 
we desire once more to recall the great need 
and advantage in the re-establishment of a 
shop work course. Five years ago a practical 
course in shop work was given, which was 
popular and filled a real demand. There are 
facilities in regard to room at present. The 
college is already supplied with a number of 
excellent machines. To a man who is taking 
a college course with the idea of later going 
into scientific study, the more practical help 
he can gain in college, the more he is fitting 
himself. The establishment of a course that 
would give a man some real training in shop 
work would be exceedingly advantageous. 
Possibly under our present condition, it might 
be necessary to keep the course limited at first, 
perhaps election only for juniors and seniors, 
or seniors alone, but in connection with the 

courses now offered in mechanical drawing, 
geometry and surveying, it would be much 
appreciated, and is the next logical step. Even 
if such a course be made small at the start, 
the college body would be exceedingly glad to 
see the introduction at no distant date. 

_ , . The Orient notes that John 

To John T • • u 1 r 

. „ , Irwin IS back again, every- 

body notes it and everybody 
is glad. I'll tell you, John, we were just a bit 
worried when we thought you weren't coming 
back again ! It is distinctly noticeable that the 
baseball interests and football interests have 
learned that it does not pay to fool around 
with trial coaches. If Bowdoin is to have a 
man to coach her team, we want to have a man 
who knows his business. The finest examples 
of coaches that Bowdoin has ever had are: 
Irwin for baseball, Ross McClave for football, 
and Lothrop for track. We have lost Lothrop ; 
we cannot hope to always be able to retain 
these other men, but when we cannot get them, 
may the athletic authorities at Bowdoin be not 
so blind to the real interests of the college as 
to think that anybody could do what these 
men have done for us ! We have tried in past 
years, and may we in future years never exper- 
iment in coaches. John, we're glad you are 
to be with us again. We appreciate you, we 
know what you've done, we know what you 
can do, and we know you'll do the best! 
Here's to you, John ! 

Bowdoin has many tro- 
Our Trophies phies, and now that action 

has been taken toward sup- 
plying a suitable place to keep them, it is time 
to get them all together and bring their inscrip- 
tions up to date. The purpose of this editorial 
is to state how matters now stand, in the hope 
that the managers of the various 'varsity teams 
will take the trouble to have the cups of their 
former teams properly engraved. 

The action which has been taken in regard 
to supplying a place for the trophies, is that 
the athletic council has voted to use the first 
twenty-five dollars which shall be turned in, 
to buy a suitable glass trophy-cabiiiet. Fur- 
ther than this, Professor Little, who for sev- 
eral years has kindly taken care of the cups, 
and had them cleaned with part of the library 
fund, has oiifered as a trophy hall, the upper 
central hallway of the library, in the middle 
of which are now exhibited some of the old 
Bowdoin catalogues and papers. Our first tro- 



phy-cabinet will probably be placed at the 
south side of the hall, while our two rowing 
banners and the New England Athletic Asso- 
ciation banner of 1899, perhaps may be hung 
from the ceiling above it. 

The cups we now have are : 

The Bowdoin Navy Championship cup, pre- 
sented by the class of '75 (lacking an inscrip- 
tion in regard to any winner) ; the cup won 
by the class of '89 in the Athletic Exhibition 
of 1888 (lacking an inscription, but accom- 
panied by a card) ; the cup won by the class 
of '95 for the best class record at Field Day 
(lacking an inscription, but accompanied by 
a card) ; the cup won by the class of '96, for 
winning the first indoor meet ; the cup given 
in 1897, to be held by each successive winner 
of the indoor meets, now held by 1909 (lack- 
ing any place for inscription, but on the stand 
of which there is ample opportunity for a row 
of little silver plates bearing the numerals of 
the winning classes) ; the cup for the winner 
of the class drills at the indoor meets, now 
held by 1910, but on which only classes win- 
ning it three times are allowed to engrave 
their numerals ; the cup presented by the class 
uf '99 to be held by each winner of the class 
baseball series, now held by 1910 (but which 
has not been engraved since won in 1902 by 
'99) ; the Bowdoin Tennis Association cup, 
awarded annually to the winner of the Bow- 
doin Tennis tournament, now held by Hyde, 
'08 (but not engraved since 1897, when won 
by Ives, '98) ; and the football cup to be 
awarded annually to the football player, 
whether of the first or second team, who shows 
the greatest improvement in all-round kick- 
ing, now held by M. A. Webber, '07, (not 
engraved, or as yet awarded for this season). 
From among these cups which are awarded 
for excellence in athletics within the college, 
there is one cup which is missing, this is the 
"Punting Cup," formerly awarded annually to 
the best football punter in Bowdoin, the award 
to be decided by a special contest. 

Besides these, the intercollegiate cups which 
Bowdoin holds are: Four tug-of-war cups, 
won severally in '89 from Colby, in '90 from 
Bates, in '92 from the "Medicals," and in '97 
again from Colby; the Maine Intercollegiate 
Athletic Association cup, to belong to the col- 
lege winning the greatest number of State 
meets between 1895 and 1904, of which Bow- 
doin won nine (not engraved on the owner- 
ship or 1904 plate) ; the Maine Intercollegiate 
Tennis cup for the winner of the singles in 
the State tournament, to belong to the college 

winning it three times, won by Bowdoin in '93, 
'94, and '96; and another cup won on the 
same conditions in '03, '04, and "06 ; the South- 
ard cup for the runner-up in the singles in the 
State tournament, to belong to the college win- 
ning it three times, won by Bowdoin in '92, 
'93, and '96; the Maine Intercollegiate Tenn's 
cup for the winner of the doubles in the State 
tournament, to belong to the college winning 
it three times, won by Bowdoin in '92, '93, 
and '94; and another cup won on the same 
conditions in '03, '04, and '06. All these tennis 
cups are correctly engraved, but there is miss- 
ing a cup which according to the Tennis Asso- 
ciation constitution should belong to Bowdoin 
for winning the doubles in '96, '97, and '99; 
and there is also a new cup to be held for 
a year by the winners of the doubles in the 
State tournament, and to belong to the college 
winning it three times, which was won last 
spring by Hyde, '08, and Ham, '08, but which 
has not yet been received from the Intercolle- 
giate Association. 

This shows just how matters stand in regard 
to our cups, and if the managers of the various 
teams will take charge of the engraving and 
the procuring of the missing cups, the Orient 
will gladly furnish all necessary data. 

In addition to these cups we now have one 
football, representing the championship of 
1904, and we earnestly solicit from former and 
present victorious captains or managers, the 
footballs or baseballs which they may hold as 
mementoes, and which if sent to Doctor Whit- 
tier will be properly inscribed, and used to 
start what we hope will be a long series of 
trophies of the championships and victories 
that fall to old Bowdoin. 

In its weekly "Bulletin of 
Comment Complaint," the Orient 

feels compelled 'to dis- 
courage the evident thoughtlessness of some 
of the students in regard to the treatment of 
college property and in particular to disparage 
the lack of respect for the chapel which the 
recent episode of the advertising elephant so 
plainly indicates. We all love our college and 
we ought to show our regard for it even in 
such a small way as to evince an evidence of 
outward respect for its property. The chapel, 
however, should be particularly sacred to Bow- 
doin men — not because the bell in its tower 
has so often rung in tones of triumph for 
victories in athletics, nor especially that the 
memory of so many loyal Bowdoin sons has 
sanctified it, but because of the nature of the 



hall, as an appropriate place to offer the sim- 
ple morning exercises which begin every week- 
day of our college life.

Our fourth college preacher this year, Rev. 
Edward F. Sanderson of Providence, R. I., 
conducted chapel on Sunday, using for his 
text the saying in which Christ likens himself 
to a door for humanity, he said in brief: 

"A great many men are doors for others, 
as, for example, teachers, who are doors lead- 
ing into the realms of thought and learning. 
Christ is the great, universal door which 
opens into realms of happiness, disclosing to 
men the higher life, and revealing to them 
eternal truths. Christ is also the musician 
who brings forth irresistible strains from the 
battered and apparently worthless harp, as 
he inspires to harmony battered and sorrow- 
shaken souls of men. Both harp and soul 
were silent or in discord until the mighty 
musician breathed upon the strings." 

Kendrie, '10, opened the service with a violin 
solo. After the address, a selection was sung 
by a quartet consisting of McGlone, '10; Ken- 
drie, '10; Brown, '09; and A. L. Stone, '10. 

In the evening Dr. Sanderson conducted a 
questionaire in the chapel, answering ques- 
tions which are of vital and continual inter- 
est to college men. There were about 50 stu- 
dents in attendance. 


There will be an informal dance at the 
Delta Upsilon house this (Friday) evening.

breaking any branches, telegraph poles or wires that 
happened to be in the way.

NO. 23 


Alumni of Bowdoin College met at their 
thirty-fourth annual dinner in the American 
dining room of the Manhattan Hotel, last 
Monday night. H. H. Pearce, vice-president 
of the association, presided, and there were 
speeches by Prof. Henry L. Chapman, who 
represented the college. Gen. Thomas H. Hub- 
bard, George H. Putnam, W. H. McElroy, 
John J. Wight and David R. Porter. 

The officers elected for the ensuing year 
are : Dr. Warren O. Plimpton, president ; F. 
R. Upton, Dr. Charles Jewett, George Till- 
son, Edward T. Little and Albert S. Ridley, 
vice-presidents; Dr. H. D. Foster, correspond- 
ing secretary; F. H. Dillingham, secretary; 
E. B. Merrill, treasurer; Percy W. Brooks, 
E. H. Sykes, Frederick B. Smith, Joseph B. 
Roberts and William Powers, executive com- 

Prof. Chapman was the first speaker, after 
the college hymn had been sung by all stand- 
ing. He told the Alumni that while there 
had been changes at Bowdoin, as an historical 
institution the college remained secure in the 
affection of her sons and was sending out a 
great honorable body of young men to make 
their mark. 

Gen. Thomas H. Hubbard spoke relative 
to a $50,000 gift by Andrew Carnegie, and 
recent action taken by the overseers of the 
Maine institution with a view to obtaining 
the benefit of the Carnegie fund for retired 

Gen. Hubbard's optimistic view of the 
financial situation at Bowdoin was very 
encouraging to the Alumni, and his enthusiasm 
spurred them to greater activity in the interests 
of their Alma Mater. Referring to the gen- 
eral educational board and its offer of $50,000 
to Bowdoin provided the college raises 
$200,000 before April i of this year, Gen. 
Hubbard pointed out the necessity of com- 

bined and quick effort on the part of all the 
Alumni. He told how Andrew Carnegie 
agreed to give $50,000 to found a scholarship 
in memory of his old friend, Thomas B. Reed. > 

A matter of great importance to all those 
who attended the dinner was Gen. Hubbard's 
explanation of the manner in which Bowdoin 
became eligible to share with other institutions 
the benefits of the Carnegie fund for retired 
professors. Although Bowdoin has always 
laeen non-sectarian, it has had on its books for 
many years records of funds with a religious 
restriction attached to them. 

When the question of eligibility first arose 
the Bowdoin authorities furnished to the 
trustees of the Carnegie fund a list of all the 
donations the institution received and the con- 
ditions attached to each. 

The Carnegie trustees found in the pro- 
visions of the $50,000 Stone professorship of 
moral and intellectual philosophy an indica- 
tion of sectarianism. In connection with the 
professorship it was stipulated that so long 
as a majority of the board of overseers were 
of the Congregational faith Bowdoin should 
enjoy the use of the fund, but that when Con- 
gregationalists were in the minority in the 
board the fund should be used by the Andover 
Theological Seminary. Gen. Hubbard, as one 
of the overseers, took the position, some time 
ago, that the construction of the restriction 
should be that Bowdoin turn over to the 
Andover institution the fund in question when 
Congregationalists were in the minority in the 
board, but not be compelled to restrict its selec- 
tion of professors or overseers. 

The Carnegie trustees insisted that the orig- 
inal idea was to always keep Congregation- 
alists in the majority, but Gen. Hubbard 
insisted that such was not the case. 

Bowdoin, however, has agreed to turn the 
fund over to Andover, although Gen. Hub- 
bard wanted it understood that the officersof 
the institution did not consider that the spirit 
of the Carnegie fund was violated under the 
old arrangement. It was simply considered 
necessary to meet every requirement of the 
Carnegie trustees. 

The speakers appeared in the order above 




Annual Meeting of Washington Association Last 


The Raleigh Hotel was the center of a dis- 
tinguished gathering, the occasion being the 
twenty-sixtli annual banquet of the Bowdoin 
College Alumni Societj' of Washington. Chief 
Justice Fuller of the United States Supreme 
Court presided, but soon retired, and Senator 
Frye of Maine, the vice-president of the 
society, officiated in his stead. Gen. Ellis 
Spear, of the class of '58, was the toastmaster. 

The guest of honor was Prof. Henry L. 
Chapman, of the faculty. Prof. Chapman 
made an address which was elegant in diction 
and replete with all that was dear to the heart 
of the Bowdoin man. He brought greetings 
from President Hyde of Bowdoin who recently 
returned from abroad restored to health and 
fit for duty. "The college," said Prof. Chap- 
man, "has a larger number of students than 
ever before ; funds are coming in from various 
sources, and there need never be a fear that 
old Bowdoin will fail to continue her good 
work and make her impress upon progressive 

He expressed his keen delight in the beau- 
ties of the Congressional Library and the 
evident fulfillment of its purpose. "The mil- 
lions invested there," said he, "were not 
expended alone to produce a beautiful building 
and fill it with rare and costly books and works 
of art, but for the higher and better education 
of our citizens, for the numberless readers 
who in the course of years may be seen at. the 

"So Bowdoin College, with its imposing 
buildings and lovely campus, is not alone for 
the eye of the visitor, but for those who enter 
its halls in search of knowledge, the students 
from all sections, and even the Washington 
colored boy who was recently enrolled as a 
freshman, may say to himself, 'AH these are 
for me.' " 

Prof. Chapman referred to the biography 
of William Pitt Fessenden, recently published, 
as a book to be read by every Bowdoin man. 
"If," said he, "the college had done nothing 
more than to, educate this truly great Ameri- 
can, it has proved its right to existence in the 
forces of progress and education. 

"But her great sons and Alumni are not 
all of the past," he said. "I am proud to have 
the opportunity to greet a Bowdoin man as 
chief justice of the Supreme Court of the 

United States ; another. Senator Frye, as pres- 
ident pro tempore of the Senate, and others 
as useful members of Congress. 

"In the helmet-shaped State that guards 
our Northeastern frontier, looking off Min- 
erva-like with clear shining eyes to the rising 
sun, there is nothing of more worth and beauty 
than Bowdoin College, which for more than 
one hundred busy, patient years has been the 
expounder of truth, the teacher of righteous- 
ness and loyalty, tlie champion of freedom 
and the nursery of brave, wise and faithful 
men ; and, best of all, for most of us who sit 
at this table — the mother of us all." 

Mr. Samuel Fessenden, who has recently 
returned from a residence of five years in 
Shanghai, where he was one of the few Amer- 
ican lawyers admitted to practice before the 
courts, spoke at length of the esteem in which 
this country is held by the Chinese, although 
recent disclosures in the field of high finance, 
he said, had led to questionings among the 
people there as to our business integrity. He 
found no evidence, he said, of hostility in 
Japan toward this country. 

Referring to Mr. Fessenden's remarks. Sen- 
ator Frye spoke of the recent passage by the 
Senate of the resolution to restore to China 
a large part of the indemnity awarded in 
connection with the Boxer disturbances. 

Col. A. L. Varney was another speaker, 
and addresses largely reminiscent and replete 
with humorous allusions to college days, of 
more interest to the Alumni than to the gen- 
eral reader, were also made by D. S. Alex- 
ander, Marshall P. Cram, Representative 
Charles E. Littlefield, who was recently made 
an LL.D. by the college; Francis M. Hatch, 
formerly minister to Hawaii ; Fred C. Stevens, 
William Frye White and others. 

At a late hour the proceedings were brought 
to a close by the singing of "Bowdoin Beata," 
"Phi Chi," and "Let Children Hear the Mighty 

y\mong the graduates of Bowdoin who were 
on the attendance list were: Amos L. Allen,

A Little Look Ahead Towards Spring 

The recent trip of John Irwin, who spent 
last week getting a line on new material, has 
aroused interest in our baseball prospects for 
the coming season. Of last year's victorious 
team, which won the entire Maine College 
series and wound up the season by defeating 
Harvard at Cambridge, .Lawrence, catcher, 
and George Bower, short stop, have graduated. 
Abbott, who covered left field, although still 
in the medical school, is ineligible, having 
played four years. Sparks, one of the nervi- 
est pitchers that ever donned a Bowdoin uni- 
form, has left college. Files is now the only 
experienced twirler in college and the bulk of 
the box work will necessarily fall upon him. 

Captain Stanwood, who covered first base 
last season, will return to his old position at 
third. There are several candidates for the 
initial bag, of whom W. Clifford, 'ii, who 
captained Lewiston High School team last 
season, seems the most promising. 

Claude Bower, who played third on last 
season's team, is candidate for catcher, as are 
Byles, 'ii, and Draper, 'lo. 

Manter, '09, will again be found at second. 
Black, '11, is also making a strong bid for 
this place. 

Lawliss, '11, of Houlton, and Donnelly, '11, 
an old Bangor High man, are the two most 
promising candidates for short stop. 

McDade, '09, is sure of his regular position 
in center, and Caldwell, '11, captain of last 
season's Hebron team, ought to make good in 
left field. Hayes, '08, and Sanborn, '08, are 
also good men. 

The most serious problem that Irwin will 
face is that of developing a twirler able to 
do a fair share of the box work. Harris, '09, 
who won his letter as substitute outfielder and 
change pitcher, gives promise, as do Hobbs, 
'10, McLachlin, '10, and Scammon, '09, who 
twirled for the second last year. 

The schedule for the coming season includes 
games with Williams, Brown, Harvard, 
Princeton, and two games with Dartmouth 
and Tufts. 

The New York trip, inaugurated last year, 
will again take place during the Easter recess. 
This trip is of vast benefit to the team and 
will doubtless become a feature of every 
schedule. The Orient extends congratula- 
tions on the excellent schedule which has 
been arranged. 

B. A. A. MEET 

The following men will leave on the 7.27 
train for Boston, Saturday morning, to take 
part in the B. A. A. meet in Mechanic's Hall, 
that evening: z\twood, Ballard, Colbath, Dem- 
ing, Edwards, Morrill, Simmons and Stone. 
The first four will be pitted against Tufts in 
the relay race, Simmons acting as alternate. 
Edwards will compete in the high jump and 
40-yard hurdles; Stone and Simmons in the 
quarter-mile novice, while Morrill will com- 
pete in the weight events. 


Last Saturday evening the Massachusetts 
Club met at the Alpha Delta Phi House with 
Messers. McLaughlin, Robinson, Stephens, R. 
D. Morss, P. B. Morss, and Kellogg. The 
meeting was called to order by President Bur- 
ton and after transacting some business, he 
introduced Professor Hastings, as speaker of 
the evening. Professor Hastings gave a most 
interesting and entertaining talk on the 
numerous courses at the Massachusetts Insti- 
tute of Technology. He outlined each course 
and gave the demand that there was for those 
who had completed the course and in many 
instances gave the salary of those in business. 
After the talk Prof. Hastings was made an 
honorary member of the club and the meet- 
ing adjourned for refreshments and an 
informal discussion on the subject of the

Notice to ^^^ Orient has already 

Com eftn printed several "Notices to 
^ Competitors" — and with 

but little effect, to all appearances, and 
realities. The work of the Sophomores com- 
peting for editorial positions continues to be 
admirable, but the diminishing interest and 
lack of any real endeavor on the part of the 
Freshmen is deplorable and will be, unless 
matters change, fatal to their making the 
board. The Orient does not expect them to 
do any exorbitant amount of work, and only 
that which can be done faithfully with a rea- 
sonable amount of time and effort, yet not 
one of the half-dozen Freshmen competing 
for the board is maintaining even this stand- 
ard of qualification. The unique position, 
already editorially referred to, of the staff of 
a college publication, composed entirely of 
men from the three upper classes appears to 
be an approaching fact ; which means the 
ultimate decline or discontinuance of the 

paper. For how can the Orient reasonably 
adopt to its staff men, who are noiv doing 
very indifferent work, and expect them to do 
justice to the paper and to the college after 
they become members of the board? Such 
lack of interest as has been shown by under- 
graduates trying for editorial position on the 
Orient this year is probably unprecedented ! 
There are now but seven more issues of the 
Orient before the new members are elected, 
yet any enterprising man in the Freshman 
class stands an excellent show of making the 
board if he can evince the elements of a news- 
paper man backed by the virtue of ability for 
hard work! The Orient would also like to 
see men from the Medical School enter the 
contest, as a still closer relationship between 
the men of both departments, and a keener 
interest in the activities of both would be 
unquestionably furthered by closer and more 
complete accounts of news from the Medical 
School in the columns of the college news- 


Hon. Herbert M. Heath of Augusta 
addressed a meeting of the Christian Associa- 
tion, on the subject of a "College Man's 
Choosing His Profession," Monday evening. 
His address in brief was as follows : — 

The old college curriculum was designed to 
turn out great ministers, but that of the pres- 
ent day is intended to develop men to the 
broadest and noblest manhood. Thus the 
college man of the present day has the greatest 
duty in the world to fulfill. In politics, — ser- 
vice of the State and country, the broadest 
opportunity is offered a man of development 
to display his talents in the service of fellow- 
man and — God. No man in State service lives 
up to the fulness of his manhood unless he 
serves his State to the best of his ability. 
"From his broad outlook in life the college man 
is better able to see where reforms are needed 
and to make them after he sees them. The 
clergyman is offered the best opportunity for 
immediate service to the world, yet the lawyer 
who is devoted to the noblest purposes of his 
profession — the search for truth, can from a 
philosophical point of view, at least, better 
serve his State. Thus all the discipline, 
knowledge, strength, received here in college 
is of inestimable value to the man who is to 
serve his State to the best of power. Every 
man should devote a part of his life, at least, 
to practical politics, aside from a continued 



theoretical interest in them. The greater the 
talents with which he is endowed, the more 
the need that he shall make his personality 
a living force in the history of his people. 
There is too little blood to carry the intellect 
of the twentieth century! In journalism, 
another great field for service is open to a 
man; but journalists, unlike lawyers and poli- 
ticians, are born, not made. Whatever your 
situation, location, or business, make the Bow- 
doin spirit — love of duty — the watchword of 
your career! 


The Maine section of the New England 
Classical Association will hold its annual 
meeting on February 7th and 8th at Bruns- 
wick, at Bowdoin College. The object of the 
association is the advancement of classical 
studies; the first meeting of the Maine Sec- 
tion was held last March in Waterville. The 
arrangements for the meetings are in charge 
of Prof. Kenneth C. M. Sills. The general 
topic for the meeting this year will be "Ancient 
History in the Secondary Schools." A large 
number of classical teachers throughout the 
State will be in attendance. The executive 
committee of the Maine Branch is : Professor 
George D. Chase, University of Maine, pres- 
ident; Professor Kenneth C. M. Sills, Bow- 
doin College, and Principal George S. Steven- 
son, Coburn Classical Institute, secretary. 

Especial attention is called to the lecture 
by Professor E. K. Rand, of Harvard Uni- 
versity, on Friday evening. The public is 
invited, and especially all students who are 
particularly interested in these subjects. The

Latin 7. — A course in Virgil, open to 
Seniors, Juniors, and Sophomores. The course 
may be taken by men who have had no Latin 
in college. The Aeneid is to be read entire, 
and the work of the class will consist partly 
in translations and partly in reports on 
assigned topics. There will also be frequent 
lectures in the course, which will discuss such 
topics as Epic Poetry, Life of Virgil, Virgil 
in the Middle Ages, Virgil and Dante, Virgil 
in the English Poets, and the Translations of 
Virgil into English Verse and Prose. The 
hours for the course which have not yet been 
definitely decided, will probably be Monday,

The volume of the college water supply has been 
diminished because of the excessive waste of water 
this year. An expense of over $150.00 (considerably 
above the average) has been already incurred for 
this commodity. Members of the Sturgis Commis- 
sion will doubtless have reason to congratulate 
themselves if reports of this nature prove prevalent 
throughout the State ! 

A hockey game has been arranged with Augusta,

that several new men will turn out. 

The editor of the Orient discovered an anony- 
mous communication placed under his door the first 
of the week, evidently intended for publication. We 
would respectfully refer the writer to the statement 
on the editorial page in regard to "no anonymous 
manuscript can be accepted." We do not require 
that names be printed to communications, but it is 
against the rules of the paper to receive anonymous 

It is nearly time for interest in the spring ath- 
letics to be awakened. The Maine meet is to come 
at Brunswick this year and we must certainly win 
on our own field. Let every man who can, come 
out for track work after spring vacation, for it is 
only from a large choice of material that a winning 
team can be picked. Remember, too, that seconds 
and thirds are important in the winning of the meet. 
Last year a third place would have tied us with 
Maine and a second given us the victory. Let us 
not run the risk of defeat this year from mere lack 
of material to pick from. 




Last fall in journalistic extravagance the 
Orient published a clipping from a Washing- 
ton daily paper, which contained a highly 
colored statement in regard to a bequest left 
by the late Col. Wing to a Miss Rittenhouse 
of $20,000. It is a matter of regret to us that 
we should have printed this statement with- 
out first verifying it. It is, however, with 
pleasure that we print the following from 
President Hyde, which would seem to give 
the truth in regard to this matter, and to cor- 
rect the report that was circulated so freely 
in the papers at that time: 

"The statement published in the Orient 
some time ago about Col. Wing was so far 
incorrect that in justice to his memory the 
facts ought to be stated. Col. Wing did leave 
$20,000 to Miss Rittenhouse, as he did to 
others of the family; but he never knew her 
mother until the family came to Bayfield some 
eighteen years ago, and the three-year-old Kate 
became his pet. 

"Sincerely yours, 

"William DeWitt Hyde." 


As a result of the Bradbury Trials, held in 
Memorial Hall on Wednesday evening, the 
following men were picked to compete in the 
Bradbury Prize Debate: Harrison Atwood, 
1909, D. J. Ready, 1910, affirmative; W. M. 
Harris, 1909, J. J. Stahl, 1909, negative. R. 
O. Brewster, 1909, H. N. Marsh, 1909, G. P. 
Hyde, 1908, and A. L. Robinson, 1908, were 
named for- further trials, two of whom will be 
selected to take part in the debate. Owing to 
the sickness of Prof. Mitchell, who was to act ' 
as one of the judges, there were but two 
judges present, Mr. Foster and Mr. Wheeler. 


The following books have been recently 
added to the library : Set of International 
Cyclopedia, 18 in number; Natural History; 
Plistory of Germany ; Pronunciation of Ten

The Orient prints on request the following 
communication : — 

Middletown, Conn., January 17th, 1908. 
To the Editor of the Bowdoin "Orient," 

Brunswick, Me. 

Dear Sir : — On February 7th and 8th, there 
is to be held a conference in Middletown, 
Conn., on "The Call of the Ministry to Young 
Men." At the present time there is a great 
need of more candidates for the ministry in 
the Episcopal Church, and this conference will 
discuss ways and means of setting the call to 
the ministry before young men, especially col- 
lege men. 

Representatives are expected from the sem- 
inaries, colleges, and boys 'schools, and some 
of the most influential clergy of the church are 
to lead the discussion. The meetings will be 
held at the Berkeley Divinity School. 

Thanking you for the favor, I am, 
Very truly yours, 

W. Blair Roberts. 


Monday evening, there was a meeting of the York 
County Club at the Kappa Sigma House. After a 
brief business meeting, Prof. K. C. M. Sills 
addressed the meeting informally on the old cus- 
toms of the college. His remarks were very much 
enjoyed by all. Afterward refreshments were served 
and Professor Sills answered many questions in 
regard to the former methods of work here at Bow- 
doin. The next meeting is with Kimball, '10, at the 
Delta Upsilon House, February 17.

NO. 24 


At the chapel exercises Tuesday, President 
Hyde announced that Bowdoin has been 
placed on the Carnegie Foundation for the 
Advancement of Teaching. The aim of the 
Foundation is to provide allowances for teach- 
ers in the universities, colleges and technical 
schools of the three English-speaking coun- 
tries of North America, and to serve the cause 
of higher education by advancing and dignify- 
ing the profession of the teacher in these higher 
institutions of learning. All technical diffi- 
culties were removed when the trustees offered 
the fund of $50,000 known as the Stone Pro- 
fessorship of Mental and Moral Philosophy to 
the Andover Theological Seminary. 

This gift is the most important the college 
has received in recent years, in that it will 
enable the college to secure and retain the 
ablest of professors. 

The retiring allowances are granted on the 
basis of age and of length of service. To be 
eligible to retirement on the ground of age, a 
teacher must have reached the age of sixty- 
five and must have been for fifteen years a 
professor in a higher institution of learning. 
To be eligible on the ground of length of 
service, a teacher must have had twenty-five 
years' service as a professor in a higher insti- 
tution of learning. It is not necessary that 
the whole of the service shall have been given 
in accepted colleges, universities and technical 

For an active pay equal to twelve hundred 
dollars the retiring allowance shall be one 
thousand dollars, increased fifty dollars for each 
one hundred dollars of active pay in excess of 
twelve hundred. In the case of Bowdoin the 
allowance will be fifteen hundred dollars. 

Any person who has been for ten years the 
wife of a professor in actual service may 
receive during her widowhood one-half of the 
allowance to which her husband would have 
been entitled. 

Of the 850 institutions in the United States, 
calling themselves universities and colleges, 
only one hundred have satisfied the require- 
ments of the trustees of the Foundation. The 
gift is of importance to Bowdoin as regards 
its standing as an institution of learning. 


The Bowdoin Alumni of Boston Hold Their Fortieth 
Annual Dinner — Banquet Held at ihe Brunswick — 
Over 100 Present — Many Significant Speeches by 
Men Notable in Various Profesiiions. 

The loyalty and devotion by which every 
college claims to bind its sons was nowhere 
more heartily manifested than by the five score 
sons of Bowdoin who met, as is customary, in 
the Maine Room of the Hotel Brunswick on 
Thursday evening, Feb. 5th, for the fortieth 
annual dinner of the Boston Association. 
Simplicitv and lack of useless formality were 
the keynotes of the occasion. The big dining- 
room was void of decoration and the gradu- 
ates were seated irrespective of class distinc- 
tion. "Bowdoin Beata," which was sung 
standing and without accompaniment, enjoyed 
the unique distinction of being the only song 
which was sung during the evening. Sylves- 
ter B. Carter, '66, the retiring president, pre- 
sided and read an appreciative letter from 
President William DeWitt Hyde, who was 
unable to be present on account of ill health- 
President Hyde thanked the Boston Alumni 
for their many and various suggestions along 
the line of new departments in physics and 
mechanical drawing. These departments, 
although they have not yet been established, 
are under immediate consideration. In clos- 
ing. President Hyde again thanked the Alumni 
for their interest, saying, "Intelligent construc- 
tive criticism is one of the greatest favors the 
alumni of a colleee can confer upon it." 

Professor Henrv Leland Chariman, '66, 
spoke for the college. "A college ought to be 
rich enough," he declared, "to realize its own 
ideals and at the same time to stand firmlv on 
the g^round it belongs. For more than one 
hundred years our college has been the expo- 
nent of truth, the gathering place of scholars 
and the nursery of wise and faithful men." 

Dr. Warren O. Plimpton, '82, president of 
the New York Alumni Association, said that 
New Yorkers felt that Boston men thought 
Bowdoin "the ultimate huckleberry upon the 
persimmon." In the course of his talk, he put 
forward a strong plea for more donations. 

The next speaker was the Reverend George 



A. Gordon, who bears the title of D. D. from 
Bowdoin, although a Harvard graduate. He 
said in part, Bowdoin is admired by Harvard 
men for three reasons ; in the first place, the 
educational ideals of Bowdoin have always 
been and there is every indication that they 
always will be of the highest quality, the cos- 
mopolitan spirit of Bowdoin has annihilated 
her comparative isolation and set her in the 
heart of the world's interests, and finally "Har- 
vard men admire Bowdoin because she stands 
above all for character. She holds the intel- 
lect of her students and the world intellect for 
the production of manhood. This is her chief 
distinction — that she is a maker of men. In 
this she represents the citizenship of a State 
unsurpassed in the character of its men, 
women and youth." 

James McKeen, '64, of New York, a lawyer 
who aided Charles E. Hughes in conducting 
the insurance investigation, spoke of law as 
one of the greatest factors in promoting the 
best in legislation. "We must not think," he 
said, "all men can be made good and of one 
mind by the abolition of jailers and the gal- 
lows. That is the fundamental fault of Anar- 
chism of today." Mr. McKeen gave warning 
of some of the dangerous tendencies of the 
times. "We seem to be heading toward a 
paternalism which if not checked will be fatal. 
The time is coming for some other kind of 
leadership than that of voices crying in a bar- 
ren wilderness of idealism. We want men of 
courageous spirit who with impartial arm will 
shatter the idols of modern materialism." 

Dr. Frederic H. Gerrish recounted the chief 
facts in the history of the Medical School of 
Maine, saying that its chief claim to the. grati- 
tude of the people rests on its having compe- 
tent general practitioners to a multitude of 
communities throughout the country. B'or 
some years the relation between the college 
and its medical department have been more 
intimate than they ever have been before, since 
the studies of the first year in the Medical 
School have been on the list of senior electives. 

Professor Arlo Bates of the M. I. T., a 
Bowdoin graduate of '76, spoke on the "True 
Relation of the College to Literature," saying 
in part : 

"The first duty of a college, as I conceive it, 
is to teach boys to earn a living. Modern 
times have established admirable machinery 
for that purpose ; and professional and techni- 
cal schools are doing their work so excellently 
that they may be safely trusted to attend to it. 
Nothing can justify the college for abandoning 

its position as a leader in public thought to 
become the slave of public caprice. 

"Literature is the record of the highest 
human wisdom ; it is the product of the deep- 
est human experience ; the expression of 
human thought in its moments of greatest 
illumination. Obviously, by no other means 
can a college so efifectively or so vitally 
advance, the general good as by diffusing an 
appreciation and a reverence for this choicest 
heritage of mankind. The ages have declared 
art to be the most enviable treasure of the 
race ; but to the mass of men today the great- 
est works of the masters are as meaningless 
and as valueless as the dandelion in the grass." 

Professor Bates maintained that the first 
duty of a college is to the country at large and 
that by developing the students to a high intel- 
lectual and moral standard the college really 
did a great work for the country. He defines 
his ideal college president as follows : 

"I am not without appreciation of the need 
that a president shall have qualifications as a 
man of affairs, but I believe these to be of less 
importance than that he be of high scholarly 
attainments, of a personality winning to the 
young, and of noble enthusiasms." 

He further deplored the fact that work in 
the classics was being abandoned because 
many of the methods of teaching them were 
poor. They have, in his opinion, a major 
place in education. He says, "We shall prob- 
ably not live to see the classics take their place 
in the curriculum again, but our grandchildren 
will, for the simple reason that nothing can fill 
their place." 

These officers of the association were chosen 
for the following year : Dr. Dudley A. Sar- 
gent, president ; Edwin U. Curtis and Dr. 
Myles Standish, vice-presidents ; H. S. Qiap- 
man, secretary ; Ellis Speare, Jr., assistant 
secretary ; W- G. Waitt, E. C. Burbank, W. H.

Bowdoin Meets Maine Tomorrow on Whittier Field 

Saturday Maine meets Bowdoin on Whittier 
Field in the first hockey game of the year 
between the two institutions. Although Maine 
has an exceptionally strong team, in that her 
last year's team is intact, and Bowdoin has 
a practically new team, — the game is certain 
to abound in sensational plays. Practice has 
been steady during the week, and Captain 
Abbott feels confident that the men who com- 
pose the team will give a good account of 
themselves. Dresser, '09, who has been 
ineligible thus far this season, expects to be 
back in the game Saturday. The Orient has 
been unable to get Maine's line-up, but Chase, 
Pray, Lamb and Bagg will probalsly be on the 
field, the first being one of Maine's football 
stars, the last two being members of last year's 
hockey team. The probable line-up for Bow- 
doin is : Capt. Abbott, Hamburger, Johnson, 
Dresser or Thompson, forwards ; Hughes, 
cover, point ; Wight or Leavitt, point, and 
Smith, goal. 


The New Year's Quill is distinctively an under- 
graduate number, for, barring two bits of verse, the 
entire forty pages are from the pens of undergrad- 
uates. Although, in the reviewer's opinion, every 
number of the Quill should have one story or essay 
and one poem by alumni, so much, during the last 
year, have the editors been obHged to depend upon 
graduate writers that this increase of student con- 
tributions is encouraging. 

Four _ poems, two stories, one essay and one 
description, besides "Silhouettes" and "Ye Post- 

man," make an attractive table of contents. The 
poem, "Memory," recalls in four lines that ring true 
the joy of companionship during a "week of sum- 
mer evenings by the sea." It is unfortunate that 
lines otherwise musical should be marred by the 
false rhyme of "gone" and "forlorn." In vernacu- 
lar verse of rural New England — the "Biglow 
Papers," for example — these two words, like "pine" 
and "join" in Whittier's lines, might possibly be 
made to rhyme but in a less provincial realm of 
letters, never. 

In "Monhegan" the rhyme is correct and the 
meter regular and harmonious. The thought, too, 
which the writer suggests, the important part which 
a Maine island played in the early settlement of the 
country, has its poetical aspects. On the whole, 
however, the verse pleases the ear rather than the 
reason or the imagination. Of course, as Lowell 
has put it, occasionally in poetry two times two 
make five, but however much license in reasoning is 
given to the poet, the pictures he presents should 
be vivid and consistent. The ordinary Quill reader 
will find it hard to form any consistent mental pic- 
ture of a "light" which is "kindly harbored" which 
"summons" her "magic grace" and "fuses" into a 
race a "mood" whose "power" "hurls" a "strength." 
Is not the fundamental weakness here vague 

In "To ", on the other hand, the picture is 

noticeably clear and consistent, the parallelism 
between a life and a star being well kept in every 
line. The lines also are free from the unconscious 
insincerity which often characterizes undergraduate 
verse. The picker of flaws, however, cannot but 
ask why "Living" in the last line is capitalized. If 
it is an attempt to elevate the diction, the reviewer 
can only bid the poet be wary of the false emphasis 
of capitals ; but if it is like "extened" on page 13, 
or "salurary" on page 16, or. "Summer" on page 31, 
the critic must remind the editors that careless 
proof-reading is irritating to both Quill writers and 
Quill readers. 

After reading the excellent volume of "Bowdoin 
Verse," published last year by Mr. J. C. Minot, '96, 
one would think that almost every significant object, 
symbol, or custom connected with the life of our 
college had found a place in rhyme. There the 
"Seniors' Last Chapel," "King Chapel," "Hubbard 
Hall," "The Pines," "Thorndike Oak," even the 
"Common Campus Posies" are celebrated in verse. 
It seems strange, then, that before this time no Bow- 
doin poet has chosen for his theme Bowdoin's 
motto. In the old days, we know, the motto on 
the scholar's book-plate had much significance for 
him and his friends, for often it suggested his 
desires and ideals. Thus the temper of Longfel- 
low's life and poetry has never been more concisely 
expressed than in that now famous book-plate 
motto, Non Clamor scd Amor. No less signifipant 
for Bowdoin graduates is the motto from the book- 
plate of Hon. James Bowdoin — Ut Aqiula versus 
Caelum. What this should mean to every Bowdoin 
man and to the college as a whole Mr. Isaac Bas- 
sett Choate, '62, with his accustomed grace, has 
musically told us in his verses, "Bowdoin's Motto." 

The first story, "A Lady in Distress," is the 
account of a practical joke which one student by 
donning female attire plays upon another. Though 
given the first place in the Quill, this is by no means 
the writer's best. It contains, to be sure, some

The Carnegie 

Probably no single greater 
benefit has come to Bow- 
doin within past years, 
than that which was made known to the col- 
lege by President Hyde in chapel last Tues- 
day morning. Bowdoin is now able to come 
under the provisions of the Carnegie founda- 
tion. It is hardly necessary to remark that 
this is a distinct honor and advantage to the 
college. It increases the honor and efficiency 
of the institution along the most essential lines 
of its educational work. Better men will be 
able to be secured and to be retained. Nor has 
Bowdoin sacrificed any of her ideals or prin- 
ciples in the delay until the pres
