NO. 1 


The 27th annual Exhibition and 18th annual 
Indoor Meet was held Tuesday evening, March 
25, in the Gen. Thomas Worcester Hyde Athletic 
Building. This, the first inter-class meet to be 
held in the new gym, seems to Bowdoin men to 
mark the beginning of a new epoch in Bowdoin 
track athletics, a new epoch in which the in- 
crease in enthusiasm and endeavor shall be in a 
greater degree proportional to the increase in fa- 
cilities which the new gym offers. 

The Sophomores won the meet with 39 points, 
the Seniors being second with 2° l A points, the 
Juniors third with 27% points, and the Freshmen 
fourth with 20 y 2 points. Haskell '13, captain of 
the Varsity, was the individual star of the meet, 
as he took first place in the 880 and 440 yard runs 
and second in the broad jump. 

The Bates Freshmen again defeated the Bow- 
doin Freshmen, though by a very small margin 
in a hard-fought race. 

Brunswick High was to run Lewiston High 
for the High School championship of the State, 
but Lewiston was unable to appear. A Bowdoin 
1915 four-man team raced Brunswick High and 
was defeated by the schoolboys. 

The long-suffering Senior drill squad "came 
back" and took first place in the exhibition drills. 
The Sophomores, owing to their nonchalant man- 
ner of marching and their original execution of 
the dumb-bell drill, easily took fourth place, 
while the Freshmen were second and the Juniors 

Perhaps the most interesting of the events 
were the relay races. The races between 1915 
and 1916 were especially exciting. The first race 
resulted in a tie and when they ran again the 
Sophomores won by only a few yards. The sum- 
mary of the meet is as follows: —

Next Thursday evening, April 10, Bowdoin, 
Hamilton and Wesleyan will compete in the Tri- 
angular Debating League on the question : "Re- 
solved, That a Tariff for Revenue Only Would 
Materially Reduce the High Cost of Living." 
Hamilton takes the place of New York Univer- 
sity in the league. In Memorial Hall Bowdoin 
will support the affirmative side of the question 
against Hamilton, while at Middletown, Conn., 
the other Bowdoin team has the negative side 
against Wesleyan. At the same time at Clinton, 
N. Y., Hamilton and Wesleyan will debate, Ham- 
ilton having the affirmative. In the debate at 
Brunswick, the Bowdoin speakers will be Lau- 
rence A. Crosby '13, Alfred H. Sweet '13, and 
Paul H. Douglas '13. The Hamilton speakers 
will be Roy A. Porter '13, Hamilton C. Gris- 
wold ' 13, and Donald E. Stone ' 13, with William 
H. S. Cole '14 as alternate. Two of the judges 
at this debate will be Hon. Frederick W. Plaisted 
of Augusta and Hon. Nathan Clifford of Port- 

In the debate against Wesleyan the Bowdoin 
speakers will be Fred D. Wish, Jr., '13, James 
A. Norton '13, and Elwyn C. Gage '14, with 
George H. Talbot '15 as alternate. This team 
will leave Brunswick Wednesday morning for 

The Bowdoin teams have been holding a series 
of trial debates against each other during vaca- 
tion and their supporters feel confident that they 
will make a good showing in the debates. Three 


of the speakers, Douglas, Wish and Gage, have 
had previous experience in the Intercollegiate 


Announcement was made during vacation of 
the choice for next year's football coach, Thomas 
A. McCann of Bangor. 

McCann was a star member of the Bangor 

High School team sixteen years ago and was 
known as one of the best high school players of 
the State. Instead of continuing his scholastic 
education he began professional coaching and 
since 1901 has been the well-known and formid- 
able coach of Bangor High School. His teams 
have been known for their fast, aggressive play- 
ing and excellent team work. As a coach Mr. 
McCann has demonstrated his ability to make as 
well as develop players and can be counted on to 
produce a fast team at Bowdoin. 

The Athletic Council and football committee 
made their choice after two months' investiga- 
tion and consideration of the available coaching 
material in the country, and after personal inter- 
views with many of the most likely aspirants for 
the position. It was their opinion that in consid- 
eration of the conditions necessary for a coach 
here, the material, etc., McCann is the best man 

to have charge of the squad. He has made foot- 
ball a profession ever since he commenced coach- 
ing and ntjt only is familiar with the various for- 
mations and styles of play in use by the most 
prominent colleges, but has an inventive genius 
for meeting old situations by new methods. Al- 
though a backfield man himself, he has been not- 
able for his proficiency in coaching line men. 
He has an attractive personality and is bound to 
be popular with the student body. For years he 
has followed the fortunes of the Maine State 
teams and is an enthusiastic Bowdoin man al- 
ready by adoption if not by graduation. 

With prospects very bright for one of the best 
squads in years, excellent facilities and a coach 
who has proved his ability to develop winning 
teams, the outlook for the football season of 1913 
is very good. 


Friday evening, April 11, Old Winter makes 
his last bow and dainty Mile. Spring (equipped 
with snowshoes) receives the official "glad 
hand." For that is the night of the Big Spring 
Rally, when Bowdoin men meet to shake off that 
coma which comes from vacation with the Musi- 
cal Clubs on The Great White Way or down on 
the farm with the spring crop of cord-wood. It 
will probably rain, but everybody will be there 
just the same to get his share of the "pep" which, 
instilled into track men, baseball men, tennis men, 
and Bowdoin men in general, is going to make a 
championship team of some sort for Bowdoin 
this spring. Memorial Hall will be filled with 
noise, smoke, enthusiasm, and — apple-cores. With 
regard to the souvenirs, the committee in charge 
refuses to describe them further than "the best 
ever," but this is the only way in which they re- 
semble those of previous years. There will be 
speeches by President Hyde, Col. E. C. Plummer 
'81, Emery O. Beane '04, Donald F. Snow '03, 
Coach Tom McCann of the football team, Coach 
Coogan of the baseball team, Capt. Link Skol- 
field of the baseball team and Capt. Charlie Has- 
kell of the track team. Besides these speakers, 
there will be other entertainment, the nature of 
which has not yet been announced. Whether we 
are to be regaled with Pratt's Stock Food or Ced 
Crowell's celebrated collection of cerious and 
cilly colloquies, or whether the musical clubs will 
give us the Cabaret Scene with New York varia- 
tions is not known, but something will happen. 
Refreshments will appear and disappear. There 
will be cheers, organized and otherwise. In fact, 
if you want to get going with a rush that will 
carry you through the spring, be at Memorial 
Hall at 7.30 Friday evening.

The New Orient 

With a publication so firmly established as the 
Orient the change from the old Board to the 
new passes almost unnoticed among its readers. 
It is, however, with a sense of increased respon- 
sibility that the editors of the new volume begin 
their task. It is not that we believe we perceive 
grievous wrongs existing in our midst and must 
take up the cudgels against them with all the en- 
thusiasm of militant journalism. The college 
community is alive to its problems and in facing 
them with a fairness and earnestness that has 
never before been equalled. Tasks there are, 
left for us to finish, but we look forward to them 
with the confidence which understanding and 
comradeship can give. 

The single policy of the editorial department, 
then, will not be to preach at or to criticise but 
to serve the college community. We will always 
welcome advice, suggestions and communica- 
tions and regard them as evidences of healthy 
cooperation in advancing the common purposes 
of Bowdoin life. 

The Bowdoin Publishing Co. completes its first 
year in a very prosperous condition and with a 
bright financial outlook. The retiring manager 
deserves great credit for organizing the company 
on a sound and permanent basis. This is the 
first bouquet of the season. 

What Postponement Means 

The matter of deferring the initiation of Fresh- 
men until the end of the first semester, proposed 
to the fraternities by the Student Council, has re- 
ceived much favorable comment and seems very 
likely to be adopted. Just what this change 
means should be understood by the student body 
before making the move. If postponement of 
initiations means prolonging the period of pre- 
initiation "stunts," there is a logical objection 
to it. If it means the extension of the rushing 
period over a whole semester, there is further 
cause for objection. If it means the abolition of 
the general initiation night, it will do away with 
one of Bowdoin' s best customs. 

But as planned by the Council, no such radical 
changes will be brought about. Pledging, as 
now, by the force of competition will be concen- 
trated within the first weeks of college. The 
pledged Freshmen will live in the fraternity 
nouses and enjoy the benefits of advice and com- 
radeship so valuable during their first year. The 
general initiation night will be continued on a 
date suitable to all concerned. The postpone- 
ment will merely result in keeping from fraternity 
membership those few men whose short college 
career does not qualify them for such member- 
ship and will place the Freshmen on trial for a 
semester. The move, it would seem, is not rad- 
ical. It will not disturb our present satisfactory 
fraternity system. If it does not prove a suc- 
cess, the old date can be resumed with little in- 
convenience. Let us give it a trial. 

Spring Is Here 

As we return from our vacation to enter on the 
last term of the college year we emerge, as it 
were, from our period of hibernation. Smiling 
skies, cheery winds and brightening foliage call 
us from the desk of study to long afternoons of 
healthy recreation. Ours is not to call to mind 
at this time neglected theses and unprepared rec- 
itations, but to urge each and every man to make 
the most of this fresh air period. Let everyone 
get out of doors into some activity — baseball, 
track or tennis — it will be worth while. Let the 
spirit of the season bring not the winter laziness 
in the aggravated form of spring fever, but rather 
a new zeal to do the thing we have before us a 


little better than seems necessary. Let the polar 
bear be led forth from winter quarters in all his 
glory bound to conquer all before him, whether 
it be the intercollegiate debates on Thursday, the 
Spring Rally on Friday, or a baseball champion- 
ship in June. 


With the first game of the season only two 
weeks away, a squad of 18 men reported to Coach 
Coogan for the first outdoor baseball work last 
Thursday. Owing to bad weather, the practise 
since then has been held in the Athletic Building, 
but it has been none the less thorough. Most of 
the men show the effect of their winter practise 
in the absence of early-season lameness, and un- 
der the new coach the squad is showing very en- 
couraging form. Coach Coogan has already con- 
vinced the men of his intimate knowledge of the 
game and his quick understanding of the material 
with which he is working. Although Bowdoin 
lost a veteran battery last June, yet with seven 
veterans and a number of promising recruits, we 
may well trust to the coach for the solving of the 
battery problem. The men who reported for 
early practise are: Catchers, E. Tuttle '13, Wig- 
gin '13, Stuart '16, Lacasce '14, Badger '14; 
pitchers, Stetson '15, Dodge '13, Rawson '16, 
Knight '16, Fraser '16; infielders, Eaton '15, 
Weatherill '14, Daniels '13, Min'ott '15, Tilton 
'13; outfielders, Coombs '14, N. Tuttle '14, and 
Capt. Skolfield '13. McElwee '16, an infielder, 
Russell '14, a veteran outfielder, and others are 
expected to report when College opens. The 
competition for infield positions bids fair to be 
unusually exciting this year. 

The schedule for the season is as follows : 

April 17. — Rhode Island State at Kingston. 

April 18. — Wesleyan at Middletown. 

April 19. — Trinity at Hartford. 

April 22. — Harvard at Cambridge. 

April 26. — Maine Centrals at Portland. 

April 29. — Tufts at Medford. 

April 30. — Andover at Andover. 

May 3. — Colby at Waterville. 

May 7. — Maine at Brunswick. 

May 10. — Maine at Orono. 

May 14. — Colby at Brunswick. 

May 24. — Tufts at Portland. 

May 30. — Bates at Lewiston. 

June 6. — -Bates at Brunswick.

The Bowdoin Musical Clubs completed their 
season by the annual Massachusetts trip, adding 
this year a trip to New York City, where there 
was a performance at Delmonico's. The clubs, 
33 men strong, left Brunswick Thursday, March 
27, and the same night gave a concert, at Ports- 
mouth, N. H. The following night there was a 
concert at Reading, Mass., and Saturday night 
at Boston. Sunday was a day of rest and Mon- 
day night's concert in New York completed the 
schedule. The New York Bowdoin Alumni As- 
sociation and the State of Maine Society of New 
York combined to make the affair a success. 

The men who made the trip are: Glee Club, 
first tenor, Page '13, Twombly '13, Shea '14, Wil-

CIuo anO Council Meetings 

The Student Council held a meeting at the 
Delta Kappa Epsilon House, March 26. Plans 
for the Spring Rally, April 11, were discussed 
and a souvenir was selected. A committee ap- 
pointed for the purpose reported a revised state- 
ment of fraternities in the Y. M. C. A. Handbook 
which was adopted by the Council. 

"It was moved and voted unanimously that the 
Council accept the statement of the U. Q. Club 
that it is merely a social club for Freshmen but 
that it deprecates any recognition of it as a col- 
lege honorary society." Other minor matters 
were discussed but no action was taken. 

The Government Club will reorganize this 
week at a meeting to be announced on the bul- 
letin board. All men in college interested in such 
an organization are invited to attend this first 

Dn t&e Campus 

President Hyde is to take charge of the Eng- 
lish X class in the next division of their course. 
The Essay will be studied. 

There has been but one candidate reported for 
manager of the Bowdoin Publishing Co. as yet. 
This is a good opportunity for some Freshman 
to get into a profitable activity. 

The Freshman caps are to appear again on the 

Bacon '15 is sick with appendicitis and will be 
unable to take part in the intercollegiate debates. 

Dresser '09 and Harris '09 were on the campus 
last week. 

Ed Fuller '13 has been taking the brown-tail 
moths off the campus during the holidays. 

All those desiring copies from the last volume 
of the Orient may obtain them free of charge 
from Walker '13. 

Space forbids the printing of the roster of the 
Hang-over Club, which has been larger and more 
flourishing than ever this vacation. 

Merrill '14 and Leigh '14 left Friday for Bos- 
ton to attend the Eastern Presidents' Conference 

of Student Y. M. C. A.'s, which was held at Har- 
vard this year. 

All candidates for assistant manager of base- 
ball should hand their names to Callahan at the 
Beta House. The following Freshmen are al- 
ready out, having reported for early work during 
vacation: Fuller, Dunn, Hawes, Haggett and 

About 30 members of the Bowdoin Chapter of 
Zeta Psi attended the convention held last week 
in Boston with the New England Association. 
Saturday evening a banquet was held at the Cop- 
ley-Plaza. The delegates to the convention were 
Crowell '13, Kennedy '13 and Stone '15. 

The famous tonsorial artist, "Jud," has offered 
three of the most beautiful shaving mugs ever 
seen in Brunswick to be competed for by the 
baseball men this spring. One will be given to 
the man who makes the highest batting aver- 
age; one will be given to the man who reaches 
first the greatest number of times ; and one will 
be given to the man making the most home runs. 
These mugs will be exhibited soon by the side of 
the Peary sledge in the library. 

The Y. M. C. A. is planning to give another 
Bowdoin Night in the near future. It is hoped 
that Donald B. McMillan '98 can be secured as 
the principal speaker. 

Under the auspices of the Y. M. C. A., the 
Brunswick Boys' Association will probably give 
a public exhibition later in the spring. 

The Dean's office is always glad to cooperate 
in sending out material regarding Bowdoin Col- 
lege — such as the Catalogue, descriptive pam- 
phlet, or the new Self-Help Bulletin — to any 
men who may be interested in the College. The 
Acting Dean will also be glad to send a personal 
letter to any man whose name is left at the office, 
in case such a personal letter is desired.

The Faculty of Hamilton College has under 
consideration an exemption system. It is pro- 
posed to exempt from the final examinations 
those students who maintain a grade of eighty in 
all their studies. 

The Good Government Club of Williams Col-

the flood sufferers and raised over $100. 

The non-fraternity students at the University 
of Washington have recently organized a club

will go into effect next year and the coach will 
have full control. 



Died Feb. 24, 1913. 

For forty-four years Professor Chapman 
served the college that he loved. The graduates 
of almost half a century had personal knowledge 
of his devotion to his Alma Mater, of his power 
as a teacher of young men, of his brilliancy in 
his chosen line, and his loyalty to his friends. 

To most of us of the New York Alumni Asso- 
ciation the news of his death came with the 
shock of deep personal loss, for long ago we 
learned first to admire, then to love him. 

His name will be placed in our memories high 
•even among the world names that have made 
Howdoin famous, and deeply graven in our 
"hearts among the names of those we love. 



New York City, March 20, 1913. 

Hall of the Kappa of Psi Upsilon, 

19 March 1913. 
It is with the most profound regret that the 
Kappa Chapter of Psi Upsilon is called upon to 
record the untimely death on the eleventh of 
March of a devoted alumnus, Charles Selwyn 
Rich, of the Class of 1892. 

Although he resided in California he was most 
loyal to his native city and State ; the college and 
the fraternity. 

Because of poor health he had been compelled 
to relinquish his chosen work in the ministry. But 
despite the realization that he was fast failing, 
liis constant cheerfulness was an example of the 
liighest courage and is an inspiring heritage. 
Realizing our loss, we have therefore, 

Resolved, That we express our deep sorrow at 
"his death, and extend our sincere sympathy to 
his wife and children and those bound closer to 
him by ties of family and friendship. 

For the Chapter.

'60.— The oldest in point of class of the several 
Bowdoin alumni who have died in the last few 
days, is Philip Henry Stubbs, a man prominent in 
Maine legal and legislative affairs. 

Philip Henry Stubbs was born in 1838, in 
Strong, the town which was always his home. 
He received his degree of A.B. in i860 and A.M. 
in 1863. On graduation from here, he went to 
Harvard Law School from which he graduated 
in 1863 with the degree of LL.B. In that year he 
returned to Strong where he practiced law for 
over half a century. He was county attorney for 
Franklin County 1870-76 and a member of the 
Maine Senate 1883-86. He was also the treas- 
urer of Franklin & Megantic. 

Mr. Stubbs was one of the leading citizens of 
his town and was always interested in any move- 
ment which would lead to the advance of Maine 
industries and the improvement of the State. 

'62. — One of the most interesting books which 
has come to the notice of the Alumni Department 
for a long time is the class history issued by this 
class as an aftermath of their fiftieth anniversary 
last June. The work was done by Rev. Edward 
N. Packard and has many marks of hard work 
and great care. It is a unique book in the history 
of class publications, and in preparing it, it is be- 
lieved that Mr. Packard has established a valu- 
able precedent which may be followed by later 

The first part of the book deals with the events 
which took place on Wednesday and Thursday of 
last Commencement when fifteen of the eighteen 
members of this loyal class came back. It will be 
remembered that this class went in a body to visit 
Gen. Joshua L. Chamberlain at his Brunswick 
residence. He is the last of the instructors in the 
college at the time when this class was an under- 
graduate body. 

Later in the afternoon this class went to New 
Meadows Inn where a reunion was held. Per- 
haps the most interesting thing to the outside 


world was the reading of a poem by Isaac Bas- 
sett Choate, whose fine lines have so often 
pleased the literary public. This poem was writ- 
ten especially for the occasion. One verse of this 
poem is so typical of Mr. Choate's loyalty to 
Bowdoin and is also such a possible source of in- 
spiration to us who are to follow in the footsteps 
of these loyal sons that we take the liberty of 
copying it : 

"Thine is the pride of a mother in all 

Her sons' achievements 

Whether on field of battle they fall 

Fighting for Freedom 

Or they give heed to Devotion's call 

To lowliest service." 
The second part of the book deals with the his- 
tory of the various members of the class since 
their graduation. As Mr. Packard said in his re- 
sponse for '62 last Commencement, this class was 
a war class and sent twenty-six of its forty-two 
members to the war immediately after gradua- 
tion. Thus, as is appropriate, more space is 
given to those who fought and gave their lives 
for their country than to those who followed 
civil pursuits. These biographies are very care- 
fully prepared, and become, not only fond re- 
minders for the living classmates, but a memo- 
rial of the class profitable to those who follow. 
How delighted the class was with this memo- 
rial history, was well and appropriately shown 
when they presented Mr. Packard with a silver 
loving cup inscribed: 

"Rev. Edward N. Packard, D.D. 

From the Class of '62 Bowdoin College 
In recognition of his excellent work 

in the preparation of the Class History 

in connection with its 50th anniversary 
June 1912." 
'64.— On March 31st, Mrs. Katherine McLellan 
Lewis, the widow of Rev. George Lewis, D.D., 
died at her home in Gorham, Me. Mrs. Lewis 
was also the mother of Hugh M. Lewis, the as- 
sistant in the college Library. 

'75- — Parker Prince Simmons, one of the most 
prominent members of this class, passed away on 
March 24th. Mr. Simmons was born in Kings- 
ton, Mass., Oct. 13, 1852 and prepared for col- 
lege at the High School of that town. 

He entered Bowdoin in 1871. While in college 
he won the Sophomore Declamation Prize, was 
a member of the Peucinian Literary Society, and 
was senior editor of The Bugle. He was also 
secretary and phophet of his class. Three years 
after his graduation he received the degree of 
A.M. from the college. 

After leaving college, Mr. Simmons was prin- 
cipal of the High School at Menden, Mass., for 

two years and then was sub-master of the High 
School at Lawrence, Mass., for an equal period. 
Leaving the educational world temporarily, Mr. 
Simmons then entered the employ of a large com- 
mission flour house, with whom he remained un- 
til 1891. In the meantime he was admitted to 
membership in the New York Produce Exchange. 

In 1886 he was appointed a member of the 
Board of Education in Brooklyn, and was twice 
reappointed. He resigned this position in 1891 
to become the Superintendent of the Book De- 
partment of the Bureau of Education. He was 
then appointed Superintendent of School Sup- 
plies for Greater New York, his training in the 
business world and educational world fitting him 
admirably for that position. He remained in this 
position until 1904, when he purchased a publish- 
ing house of which he was proprietor until his 

It is rare that a man is a success in both the 
business world and the educational world at the 
same time, and that he can combine the two for 
even greater success, but this was the case with 
Mr. Simmons. Noted for his alertness to take up 
new ideas, and for his unerring judgment in see- 
ing the value of new reforms, he supported many 
new ideas which are now becoming cardinal prin- 
ciples in teaching. 

'11. — The second annual report of this class- 
has been issued by the Class Secretary, Ernest 
G. Fifield. Since the last report was issued the 
class has become the proud possessor of a class 
baby. "Ollie" Sanborn, who was married in the 
spring of his senior year, is the father, and the 
baby was born June 23, 1912. 

The summary of the class as it stands at pres- 
ent shows the following numbers to be in the 
various lines of business: — Business, 33; teach- 
ing, 8 ; ministry, 3 ; Y. M. C. A., 1 ; charities, 1 ; 
advanced study, 26; total, 72. Of those in ad- 
vanced study, 11 are in medicine, 10 in law and 5 
in the arts and sciences. 

The 15th annual banquet of the Kennebec

NO. 2 


All three teams in the Triangular Debating 
League defending the affirmative won their de- 
bates, Hamilton winning at Clinton, Wesleyan at 
Middletown, and Bowdoin at Brunswick. 


Last Thursday evening in Memorial Hall Bow- 
doin won its debate in the Triangular Debating 
League, of which it is a member with Hamilton 
College and Wesleyan University, against Ham- 
ilton. The question was : — Resolved, That the 
present high cost of living would be materially 
reduced by a tariff for revenue only. The mem- 
bers of the Bowdoin team, taking the affirmative 
side, were Laurence A. Crosby '13, Alfred H. 
Sweet '13 and Paul H. Douglas '13. President 
Hyde presided. The judges were Hon. Nathan 
Clifford of Portland, Hon. Frederick W. Plaisted 
of Augusta and Professor James A. Tufts of 
Exeter. The debate was fought out on specific 
schedules instead of general principles. 

Mr. Crosby opened the discussion for the af- 
firmative by saying that the problem of the high 
cost of living was never before the people more 
violently than it is today. The difference be- 
tween prices and wages has become smaller. The 
high cost must come down, and the remedy must 
be a substantial one. As regards prices, there 
are two classes of commodities, — those of which 
we have insufficient to meet home needs and 
those produced under a monopoly. If a tariff 
for revenue only is adopted, the buyer will be en- 
abled to obtain his commodities at lower prices. 
The five most important commodities are meat, 
sugar, wool, cotton and steel. First, as to the af- 
fect of a revenue tariff upon meat. Today the 
United States is not producing enough beef to 
satisfy its own market. We will admit beef on 
revenue tariff and lower the price materially. 
Give the American consumer a wide market and 

Mr. Porter made the opening speech for the 
negative. He stated that the tariff is not a cause 
of the high cost of living, as it is not a factor in 
making prices. The reasons for the high cost of 
living are the increase in the gold supply, the 
flux from the country to the city, the middleman's 

profits, the trusts and the waste in natural re- 
sources. The high cost depends primarily upon 
retail prices, and even if the tariff did affect 
wholesale prices, it would not affect retail prices. 

Mr. Sweet was the second speaker for the af- 
firmative. He said that his side was arguing on 
the reduction, not on the causes, of the high cost 
of living. The high cost of meat was shown, and 
the facts were* not contradicted by the negative. 
The removal of duty on sugar would cut its price 
in half, according to Professor Henry C. Emery. 
The woolen industry is an unnatural one with us. 
The tariff on raw wool is 50 per cent. ; on woolen 
goods, 92 per cent. Steel enters into the expenses 
of the average family. It is much less expensive 
abroad than it is here. 

The second speaker for the negative, Mr. Gris- 
wold, said that the tariff is only an immaterial 
cause. There is international monopoly as re- 
gards steel, wool is produced here at a greater 
cost than it is abroad, and our cotton mills are 
running at almost a loss. Therefore, if the tariff 
were reduced, laborers would be thrown out of 

Mr. Douglas was the third speaker for the af- 
firmative. He stated that by the tariff of 1909, 
the duty on steel was reduced three dollars a ton. 
Its cost was then reduced three dollars. There 
could not be a permanent international monopoly, 
because it would be broken. Articles must be 
produced in abundance. If the cost of raw ma- 
terial is high, the production cannot be so abun- 
dant. In the manufacture of cotton the wages 
would not be correspondingly reduced with the 
tariff, as the trusts would lose their monopoly. 
As for wool, we could get cheaper raw material 
by taking off the tariff, and that would make us 
able to meet competition, because manufacturing 
here is lower. 

Mr. Stone was the third speaker for the nega- 
tive. He went into details on the cost of food, 
shelter and clothing. He said that dairy products 
are higher in Canada than fhey are here, that the 
beef market is controlled by trusts and by Eng- 
land, and that the sugar lands are owned by 

In rebuttal the negative attempted to strengthen 
what it had already stated. Mr. Crosby said 


that the cost of living is lower in England than 
it is in America, and that England is a free trade 
country. Mr. Griswold said that the cost of pro- 
duction in this country is higher than abroad and 
the only way to reduce it is to reduce wages. In 
England steel is sold at the same price as in 
America now. Mr. Sweet made an analysis of 
the cost of living in England since the adoption 
of a tariff for revenue only, and a comparison 
with the United States. Mr. Stone said that we 
would not get cheaper foreign competition, be- 
cause prices abroad are higher — that products in 
England are higher than they are in America. 

The Bowdoin team delivered their speeches 
much more' calmly and deliberately than did their 
opponents. Their arguments were brought forth 
in a clear and convincing manner,- and they well 
deserved the decision of the judges, which was 
unanimous in their favor. 


The Bowdoin team debating on the negative 
side of the question against VVesleyan at Middle- 
town was defeated, as were all the negative teams 
in the league. The Bowdoin team was com- 
posed of Fred D. Wish, Jr., '13, James A. Nor- 
ton ' 13, and Elwyn C. Gage '14, with George 
H. Talbot '15 as alternate. The Wesleyan team 
consisted of Ralph O. Dulany '14, Arthur S. 
Hancock '13, and Allen S. Raymond '14, with 
Francis A. Sturgis '14, as alternate. 

The judges of the Bowdoin-Wesleyan debate 
were Professor James A. Winans of Cornell Uni- 
versity; ex- Lieutenant Governor Everett J. Lake 
of Hartford, Conn. ; and Ernest W. Telton of 
New Britain, Conn. 

The Wesleyan team took up a large number of 
commodities, and argued from the rate of tariff 
upon each, and the prices of the commodities in 
their home market, the reduction in price that 
might be expected from a reduction in the tariff. 
They then calculated, from the average family ex- 
penditure for each of these commodities, the re- 
duction in the annual expenditure of each family 
that might be expected from a reduction in the 

The negative took up the most important arti- 
cles which are factors in the cost of living, and 
showed that these articles would not enter the 
American market, if the tariff were reduced, in 
competition with the American product, or in 
quantities sufficient to affect the American mar- 
ket. They also argued that in so far as prices 
might be reduced by the reduction of the tariff 
alone, the wages of the laboring man would be 
correspondingly reduced. 


Four weeks from last Saturday — May 10 — 
Bowdoin will meet Trinity in a dual track meet 
on Whittier Field. That means that in a month's 
time Bowdoin must have its team in the pink of 
training. To accomplish this every man in col- 
lege who has any track ability must turn out. Ac- 
cording to all reports, Trinity has a fast, well bal- 
anced team, and to beat it Bowdoin needs every 
man's support. 

Hudson, the Trinity football star, is entered 
and is expected — by Trinity supporters— to take 
points in eight events : the sprints, the weights, 
the broad jump, and the hurdles. Those who saw 
him buck the line last fall have a very healthy re- 
spect for his athletic abilities, but it is 'going to 
take more than one man to trim Bowdoin's 1913 
track team ! 

Twenty-four men have already reported for 
practice and are working out every afternoon on 
the field. Training table started Monday and 
beginning then all track men settled down to a 
month of hard steady work. Captain Haskell 
expresses himself as perfectly confident that 
Bowdoin will have a track team this spring to be 
proud of. Coach Finneran is more than pleased 
with the way the men are taking hold. With this 
judgment of two good men before us can we and 
will we fail? 

The men who reported at the training table at 
Mrs. Mosher's on 10 Cleaveland St. were: L. 
Brown '14, P. Smith '15, Prescott '15, Jones '13, 
Tarbox '14, Leadbetter '16, Parkhurst '13, 
Greene '13, Peters '13, Merrill '14, Fox '14, Pratt 
'14, Marshall '16, Irving '16, Emery '13, Walker 
'13, McWilliams '15, L. Donahue '14, C. Brown 
'14, Gardner '13, Haskell '13, and Coach Finne- 

A series of handicap meets has been arranged 
to take place one on each Saturday from the com- 
ing Saturday up to the Trinity meet. 


Coach McCann wishes to announce to all men 
who intend to try for the football team next fall 
that there will be no regular spring football prac- 
tise, but he wishes to have every candidate join 
either the track or the baseball squads at once in 
order to keep in good shape. 

Coach McCann spent the week-end in Bruns- 
wick meeting a large number of the football men 
and talking over the situation with the captain, 
manager and Dr. Whittier. He is very optimis- 
tic about the outlook and material for next fall's 
team. He will be glad at any time to receive any 
suggestions or to confer with any alumni of the 
college on methods and fine points of the game.

The Result of Postponement 

In the last issue of the Orient an attempt 
was made to explain what the postponement of 
Freshman initiations would mean. At the Spring 
Rally this matter received further attention. 
The question raised at that time was whether the 
postponement of initiation to the fraternities 
would not, to some degree, cut the Freshman off 
from the helpful influence of the older brother: 
As we see the question this will not occur. As 
stated before, the change is really a minor one. 
Our system will remain as it is at present. The 
Freshmen will still become affiliated with the fra- 
ternities during the first few weeks. The differ- 
ence will be that it is a trial membership in which 
the fraternity reserves the right to retain real 
membership until the Freshman has shown his 
ability to remain in college. It is true that only 
four or five men would be affected by this change, 
but why should it not be made for only four or 
five if it entails no objections of another kind? 
We would be glad to publish any communication 
from any of our readers in regard to the matter. 

What the Rally Meant 

If there was one thought which gave unity to 
the speeches of the recent Spring Rally it was 
the significance of the New Gymnasium. There 
has been a rather unconscious acceptance on the 
part of the new athletic plant by the student body 
which is entirely natural. But it was left to the 
annual Rally, which marked the beginning of the 
campaign for the building two years ago and re- 
corded the realization of it last year, to bring 
home to the students the significance of it, the 
fact that it means a new era in Bowdoin athletics. 
Its influence is already felt in the size of the track 
and baseball squads and the movement for an 
experienced scientific trainer. 


All of the prophecies made in last week's 
Orient, even the one about the rain, came true 
Friday night, when the official Spring Opening 
was held in Memorial Hall. It is called the Big 
Spring Rally because it was big in every way. 
All Bowdoin was there, every man coming with 
that "pep" which the Rally was supposed to rouse. 
Not for an instant, from "Glasses Clinking High" 
to "Bowdoin Beata," did enthusiasm lag, and 
each one of the long list of speakers received the 
same attention and interest. There was plenty 
of noise, ranging from the cheers which greeted 
the speakers to the steady crunching of the ice- 
cream cones. The souvenirs, automatic cigar 
lighters of aluminum with a black inscription, 
were original and distinctive. 

But it was not the band, the cheers, the re- 
freshments, or the souvenirs, much as these 
helped, which will make this rally remembered 
as probably the best Spring Rally Bowdoin ever 
had. It was more than that, it was that intangi- 
ble thing known as "Bowdoin Spirit," which rah 
so high that old grads and young undergraduates 
were united once more in the realization of what 
"Old Bowdoin" means to them. There was spirit 
of optimism shown by the captains and coaches 
of the teams which argues well for Bowdoin's 
chances for a championship this spring. 

President Hyde, the first speaker, made an an- 
nouncement which means a great deal to follow- 
ers of Bowdoin athletics. Although he made no 
promises, yet he said that in all probability the 
College will soon engage a competent athletic 
trainer for all the year. He also spoke briefly 
on the question of fraternity initiation postpone- 
ment, urging careful consideration, and reminded 
the fellows of the necessity of getting two more 
large classes in order to have the new dormitory 
built within five years. 

Capt. Haskell gave a fine talk on track pros- 



pects and was followed by Ellis Spear '98, who 
gave a very interesting talk on archery, a sport 
which was practically founded in this country by 
two Bowdoin men. Mr. Spear urged the starting 
of an archery team at Bowdoin to compete in the 
National Tournament next August. 

The other speakers were Don Snow '01, foot- 
ball Coach McCann, Stan Dole '13 for the track 
management and Douglas '13 on the subject of 
admission to the Trinity Meet, Col. Plummer '81, 
Emery Beane '04, and Capt. Skolfield and Coach 
Coogan of the baseball team. Coach McCann, 
in his first appearance before a Bowdoin aud- 
ience, won his way to our hearts immediately by 
a quiet, straight-from-the-shoulder speech which 
gave us some hint as to how much he is a Bow- 
doin man at heart. 

By way of lighter diversion, Stewart Morrill 
'16 showed undreamed-of talent in impersona- 
tions of members of the faculty, chiefly those not 

And there you have the prophecy fulfilled, the 
speeches, band, songs, cheers, refreshments, 
souvenirs, entertainment, and — PEP. 


The third and last College Tea of the year was 
held Friday afternoon in Hubbard Hall. In the 
receiving line were: Mrs. Hormell, Mrs. John- 
son, Mrs. Mitchell and Mrs. Moody. Mrs. Whit- 
tier served tea, assisted by Misses Dorethea Don- 
nell and Mable Davis. Coffee was poured by 
Mrs. Woodruff, who was assisted by Misses 
Marion Drew, Rose Chandler, Marguerite Hut- 
chins and Olive Nutter. At the punch tables 
were Mrs. Wilder and Mrs. Wass; the young 
ladies serving were Misses Ruth Little, Elizabeth 
Purington, Ruth Andrews and Isabelle Pollard. 
The ushers were: Whittier '13, Standish '14, 
Stone '15, Elwell '15, Foster '16, Woodman '16, 
Robie '16, Noble '16 and Walker '13. 

Edward P. Mitchell '71 will speak at the open 
meeting of the Ibis next Monday evening in 
Memorial Hall on "The Man of Nippur." Mr. 
Mitchell has been connected with The New York 
Sun since 1875 and is now the editor. Though 
he has not spoken before at College, he is very 
popular as a writer- and speaker. 

Last Wednesday evening the Brunswick Club 
held a ladies' night and nearly a hundred mem- 
bers and guests enjoyed an entertainment given 
by the College Mandolin Quintette, Savage '13, 

Holt '13, Conant '13, Crosby '13, and Gilbert '13, 
and a double quartette, Card '15, Twombly '13, 
Wilson '14, West '15, Woodman '16, L. Smith 
'13, Ramsey '15, Eaton '14, Munroe '14. Loring 
Pratt '13 also gave several readings. 

The third annual joint concert will be held by 
the Musical Clubs of Bowdoin and Bates in the 
City Hall at Lewiston, April 30. The joint con- 
certs have always been very successful before 
and the management will try to make this the 
best of all. A special program has been ar- 
ranged and now is the time for everyone to show 
that Bowdoin supports her other activities as well 
as athletics. 

The Bowdoin Orchestra practiced Thursday- 
afternoon this last week. The attendance was-, 
not as large as is desired, but the prospects are 
hopeful. Trombones, other bass instruments, and 
traps are needed at once. Men playing these in- 
struments should make a special effort to attend 
the next rehearsal this afternoon at 4.30. 


Several important additions have been made 
recently to the collection in the Walker Art 
Building. Dr. Edward Warren of Lewishouse, 
Sussex, England has presented the College with 
a large and valuable collection of classical relics, 
consisting of a handsome set of Greek vases in 
an excellent state of preservation, a few small 
bronzes, and several pieces of terra cotta work, 
all of which have been installed in the Boyd Gal- 
lery. He has also donated three marble busts, 
one of Roman sculpture of the first century A. D. 
and two of Greek artisanship of the fourth cen- 
tury, B. C.j and in addition to these a marble 
torso of Praxitiles "Faun," a replica of the type 
best known by the Capitoline example which was 
Hawthorne's "Marble Faun." These pieces of 
statuary have been set up in the Sculpture Hall. 

Besides these gifts Professor and Mrs. C. C. 
Hutchins have contributed an early nineteenth- 
century miniature from the Richard Call collec- 
tion of St. Louis, and Mr. Burton C. Morrill of 
Augusta has loaned the Museum a miniature of 
Miss Becky Towle, the daughter of Mr. Warren 
Towle '81.

cock, there are several new men who are show- 
ing up very promisingly. McElwee is already 
•showing professional form at third. Knight and 
Rawson look good as Freshmen pitchers. Eaton 
plays a good practice game at first ; he has a good 
reach and a strong whip. 

The first cut in the squad came Wednesday and 
■was explained for the following reason : "In 
"view of the fact that the first baseball game is 
only a week away, and that Coach Coogan has 
not sufficient time to look over the squad proper- 
ly before that, he has deemed it advisable to cut 
down the squad. This does not mean the selec- 
tion of the Varsity team as the coach will look 
all men over thoroughly after the first trip. The 
following men will report for practice : Catch- 
ers, LaCasce, Wiggin, Tuttle, Stuart, infield- 
ers, Eaton, Keegan, McElwee, Tilton, Daniels, N. 
Tuttle, Minott; outfielders, Skolfield, Weatherill, 
Russell, L. Brown ; pitchers, L. Dodge, Knight, 
Stetson, Rawson, Woodcock, H. L. Hall. 

Earl Gardner '13 has been appointed by Capt. 
Skolfield to captain the second team. This ag- 
gregation defeated Brunswick High on the Delta 
last Thursday by a score of 5-0. Coxe '15 and 
Wood '16 allowed only two hits. The second 
team is to hold a series of games with the Varsity 
until they leave Wednesday for Rhode Island. 
In the game Saturday afternoon the Varsity won 
7-1. Next Saturday the second team plays 
Kents Hill at Readfield.

April 10, 1913. 
The Theta Chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon 
hears with sorrow of the death of Brother George 
Bacon Towle, of the Class of 1858, who died sud- 
denly on January 6 last at Upper Montclair, New 
Jersey. As Brother Towle was the last of a dele- 



gation of twelve men, his death is most regret- 

Brother Towle was best known as a teacher, 
and it was as headmaster of the Trinity School 
of New York City that he gained for himself an 
enviable reputation in the field of education. 

The Chapter which mourns his death joins with 
his surviving classmates and many other friends 
in extending to his wife its most heartfelt sym-

alumni Department 

The incoming editor of the Alumni Depart- 
ment sincerely desires that its columns shall, more 
than ever before, serve the interests of Bow- 
doin's alumni. Although it will continue to give 
full justice to the departed, yet it wishes to pub- 
lish more information about the living. Every 
alumnus should have a means — and we believe 
that the columns of the Orient will be the best 
means — of finding out constantly just what every 
other alumnus is doing. In order to accomplish 
this object, therefore, the Department sends out 
to every class secretary and to every officer of a 
Bowdoin alumni association, as well as to any 
other alumnus who is in a position to procure in- 
formation, the earnest plea that he will from time 
to time contribute to the Orient any items con- 
cerning the interests, activities, and achieve- 
ments of the living alumni of the College. This 
much we ask of the alumni for their columns.

'09. — Max Pearson Cushing has been elected 
Instructor of History at Reed College. Mr. 
Cushing is well known to the present college gen- 
eration. He was the leader of the college Glee 
Club while in college, and was one of the most 
popular members of his class. While in college, 
Mr. Cushing was an assistant in English. Since 
graduation, he has received an A.M. from Co-

spent in Roberts College, Constantinople, and for 
some time he studied at the University of Lau-

in the college, and one of the most popular men, 
not only in his class, but in the whole Maine col- 
legiate world.

The baseball squad of 13 men left Brunswick 
Wednesday afternoon for their trip into south- 
ern New England and returned Sunday with the 
scores of two out of three games in their favor. 
The men who made the trip were : Catchers, Wig- 
gin and Lacasce; pitchers, Dodge, Rawson, 
Knight and Stetson; infielders, Eaton, Daniels, 
McElwee and Tilton ; outfielders, N. Tuttle, Capt. 
Skolfield and Weatherill. Although the number 
of errors in all of the games was large, this was 
largely due to cold weather and nervousness, 
things which the team will not have to contend 
with later in the season. Practically all the men 
did excellent work with the stick, far better than 
Coach Coogan had expected of them. 

Of the individual players, Lacasce was un- 
doubtedly the star. He caught all three games 
and contributed a lion's share of the hits. Raw- 
son and Stetson showed up best of the pitchers, 
Knight and Dodge being wild at times. McEl- 
wee and Daniels did well at the bat but the work 
of the infield as a whole was rather ragged. The 
outfield was reliable in all three games. While 
Bob Weatherill was making his spectacular catch 
in the Wesleyan game, he pulled a tendon, and 
Stetson took his place in the Trinity game. 

The team meets Harvard this afternoon at 
Cambridge. They have received a thorough go- 
ing-over from. Coach Coogan and will enter the 
game in much better shape than they were on the 
first trip. 


In a loosely-played game Bowdoin won the 
first game on the schedule from Rhode Island 
State College last Thursday by the score of 13 
to 4. Rawson, the Freshman pitcher, allowed, 
only three hits. Although the number of errors 
was large, Rawson received excellent support 
from the rest of the team. Bowdoin hit well, 
Weatherill, McElwee, Lacasce and N. Tuttle fur- 
nishing the majority of the hits. McElwee, play- 
ing his first game for Bowdoin, showed up well 
at third.

Bowdoin's rally in the game with Wesleyan 
Friday afternoon came too late and Wesleyan 
won with a 9 to 8 score. Wesleyan secured a 
commanding lead in the first two innings, which, 
with the fourth, were the only innings in which 
the Connecticut team scored. Bowdoin came 
back strong and tallied three runs in the eighth, 
aided by a bad throw from centerfield by Holden, 
and scored one more in the ninth, but Bacon 
tightened and prevented further runs. 

The feature of the game was contributed by 
Bob Weatherill who pulled down with his bare 
hand a drive that was labelled extra bases. Wes- 
leyan made four errors to Bowdoin's seven, near- 
ly all the miscues figuring in the scoring. The 
cold prevented fast fielding. Bowdoin outhit

Two runs in the ninth inning gave Bowdoin 
the victory over Trinity Saturday. Trinity 
scored twice in the second but in the fourth and 
fifth Bowdoin made eight runs and things looked 
easy for another walk-over. In the seventh, 
however, Trinity hit Dodge freely and, with the 
aid of errors, crossed the plate six times. Raw- 
son pitched the last two innings and held Trinity 

Bowdoin outplayed Trinity in every depart- 
ment of the game. Bowdoin made 10 hits against

BOWDOIN 2nd VS. B. H. S. 

Brunswick High turned the tables on the sec- 
ond team Wednesday afternoon and emerged 
with the long end of the 12 to 8 score. The game 
went ten innings, and in the tenth, on only one 
clean single, the high school boys scored four 

The second team used 20 men in an effort to 
save the day, but the weather was too cold to al- 
low fast playing. The last two innings were the 
most exciting. At the end of the eighth, the sec- 
ond team was two ahead. Brunswick scored 
three times in the first of the ninth, and then, on 
a two-bagger by Rogers and a single by Badger, 
Bowdoin second tied the score. The sad tale of 
the tenth has been told. 

The batteries were: Hall, pitcher; Stuart and 
Kuhn, catchers, for the second team. Brown and 
Grover, pitchers; Nevens, catcher, for Bruns- 
wick High.

narrow margin of 6 scores, the second team

ly errors were largely responsible for the defeat. 
Fraser was relieved at the end of the sixth in- 
ning by Hall. Both pitchers did rather better 
than the score indicates. Gardner and Keegan

nary tournament held last fall, are candidates for 
the team: Eaton '13, Gardner '13, Card '15, 
Nixon '13, Slocum '13, Larrabee '16, Woodman 
'16. Although Captain Savage '13 is the only 
player who has had 'varsity experience, the men 
are showing good form, and with the additional 
facilities for practice in all sorts of weather af- 
forded by the new Athletic Building, Bowdoin 
should turn out a strong team. 

The schedule, as arranged by Manager Paul 
Donahue '14, opens with a tournament with the 
Portland Country Club at Portland on either 
May 6 or 7. Bowdoin will also send a team to 
the annual Maine Intercollegiate Tournament,

Lewiston from May 12 to 14, and will be repre- 
sented in the New England Intercollegiate Tour- 
nament at Longwood on May 19.

The Eternal Canine 

It was once conclusively proved by a street 
corner orator that professional men are parasites 
on society. Arguing that preachers are depend- 
ant for their living on society's sin, doctors on its 
disease, teachers on its ignorance and lawyers on 
its quarrels, he maintained that if we remove 
these abnormal conditions the professional man 
will have to go out of business. 

So it is with the college newspaper editorial in 
a humbler sphere. Its sole raison d'etre seems to 
be in the weaknesses and irregularities of the col- 
lege community. Let there be a lack of attend- 
ance at a rally and the next week's issue of the 
Orient must bewail the loss of spirit ; let a stray 
dog enter chapel and the weekly paper feels duty 
bound to censure someone. 

But we do not feel inclined to criticise anyone 
for last week's disturbance which was very slight 
in comparison with those of previous years. The 
occurrence does, however, give us the opportun- 
ity to moralize a bit about chapel conduct in gen- 
eral. It is a generally recognized fact that Bow- 

doin does not show itself to very great advantage 
at this daily service, that it is a weak point in our 
campus life. But what can we do about it? The 
tradition of choir rather than congregational 
singing seems as deeply rooted as the precedence 
of classes. The murmur of conversation and 
"eleventh hour" studying is a well established 
custom. No radical reform seems possible. 

But there is one reasonable hope of improve- 
ment. The underclassmen should learn to take 
their cue from the Seniors in regard to applause 
and demonstration. If prayers are too long, let 
the upperclassmen be the first judges. If the 
chapel is to be noisy let a larger share come from 
the upper classes than the lower classes. Then, 
perhaps, the chapel customs will be preserved as 
they should be, and perhaps improved. Perhaps, 
in this way, we may some day experience a grow- 
ing realization of the value of this service which 
is now only partially attained. 

As You Might Expect 

Some editorial subjects are found after long 
search, some occur in the natural course of 
events, and some are forced upon us. The one 
we now treat is of the last variety. To omit men- 
tion of the much-discussed celebration after the 
Rhode Island State game would be too much of a 
surprise to the campus prophets. But after all, 
there is not much to be said about the affair. 
That it was ill-timed and hurtful rather than 
helpful in preserving Bowdoin traditions, will 
not be denied by those familiar with the campus 
customs. But those in charge of last week's af- 
fair were, for the most part, under-classmen and 
could not be expected to exhibit the discrimina- 
tion of older Bowdoin men. The Orient has no 
quarrel,, however, with any students who wish to 
celebrate a victory if it be only over Brunswick 
or Topsham High School, providing the celebra- 
tion is an expression of real jubilation. These 
matters are within the province of the proper 
committee of the Student Council, the members 
of which, we hope, realize the consequences of a 
frequent repetition of such unwarranted celebra- 

A Good Start 

Those who have been following the baseball 
team closely are very well pleased with their 
work on their first series of games last week. 
They showed the strength of which champion- 
ship teams are made and betrayed weaknesses 
which can be done away with by hard practise. 
This afternoon Bowdoin meets Harvard at Cam- 
bridge and the hopes of the College are high in 


the anticipation of a very creditable showing.

With profound regret the Lambda Chapter of 
Zeta Psi learns of the untimely death of Parker 
Prince Simmons, a devoted alumnus of the Class 
of 1875, on March 24th at his home in New York. 

In college Brother Simmons revealed those 
qualities which characterized his life and made 
his record so enviable. Sympathetic and inter- 
ested as a brother and alumnus, unselfish and in- 
defatigable as an educator, thorough and con- 
scientious as a business man, in whatever he un- 
dertook he has left an inspiring heritage to his 
fraternity and to his college. 

Realizing the great loss we have met in his 
death, we have therefore, 

Resolved, That we express our deep sorrow 
and extend our sincere sympathy to his wife, 
family, and relatives, and those to whom his life 
was bound by the ties of friendship. 

Harold William Miller, 
Alfred Watts Newcombe, 
Harold Merrill Hayes, 

For the Chapter.

'60.— The death of Robert Cash, Esq., on No- 
vember 27, 1912, has just been reported to the 
class secretary, Augustine Jones, Esq. 

'76. — It has been announced that the only son 
of Professor Arlo Bates, of the Massachusetts 
Institute of Technology is engaged to Miss 
Natica Inches. The bride comes from one of 
Boston's old and honored families. The bride- 
groom is the grandson of the late Professor 
George W. Vose of Brunswick, and of Dr. 
Hiram Bates, formerly of East Machias. Mr. 
Bates has won renown as an archaeologist in 
North Africa. 

Professor Bates is well known for the stories 
which he contributed to the old Portland Tran- 
script after his graduation from Bowdoin, and 
later for his excellent novels and his work at the 
Massachusetts Institute of Technology. 

'77- — George W. Tillson, chief engineer of the 
Borough of Brooklyn, was recently honored by 
the City Club of that city. A dinner was given in 
honor of "Expert Administrative Service," and 
Mr. Tillson was among the guests of honor, — 
those who, for at least five years have given 
faithful service in technical or administrative 
lines to the City of New York. 

'80. — Another of the deaths which will mean a 
great loss to the Bowdoin family, was that of 
Franklin Goulding of this class. Mr. Goulding 
was prominent in the business world from the 
time of his graduation until his death. 

Franklin Goulding was born at Groton Junc- 
tion, Mass., Nov. 2i, 1858.. After graduation 
from college Mr. Goulding became Assistant 
Paymaster at the Androscoggin Mills, in Lewis- 
ton, which position he held for five years. He 
then spent three years in business in Boston as 
bookkeeper and industrial manager of the branch 
there. Mr. Goulding then entered the rubber 
business as paymaster and later manager of the 
Metropolitan Rubber Co. at Wallingford, Ct. Mr. 
Goulding's service in the East was terminated by 
an eleven year term of service with the Valvo- 
line and the Wilburine Oil Companies, allied 
companies. In 1904 he was forced to go to 
southern California for his health, and for some 
time was an expert accountant for the Los An- 
geles Ice and Cold Storage Co. 

In spite of the fact that he was very busy in 
these various positions, Mr. Goulding never for- 
got the social duties of a true Bowdoin man. He 
was an active member of the Baptist Church and 
for five years was a director of the Young Men's 
Christian Association at Warren, Pa. He was 
also a justice of the peace in Maine for one 

term, and was clerk of elections in Chicago while 
there with the Valvoline Oil Co., for four years. 

'86. — Dr. John Clement Parker, one of the 
most successful physicians of Providence, R. I., 
passed away on March 12th. After graduation 
he received an A.M. in 1889 and also received his 
M.D. from the Medical School in 1891. After 
graduating from the academic department, he 
was principal of the High School at Kennebunk, 
Me., for three years. He then returned to the 
college where he was an assistant in the biology 
department, in fact one of the first assistants in 
that department. After receiving his medical 
degree he opened an office in Farmington, where 
he remained for nine years. He then moved to 
Providence where he soon gained a most exten- 
sive practice. His death was due to pneumonia. 

'88.— In the death of Professor Henry C. Hill 
from bronchial pneumonia, at Lawrence, Kas., 
on April 8th, Bowdoin lost an alumnus famous 
as one of the ablest teachers of jurisprudence in 
the West. 

Born at Pond Cove, Cape Elizabeth, 46 years 
ago, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward F. Hill, he 
was one of the best known young men of that 

After graduation from Cape Elizabeth High 
School and from Bowdoin College, he took grad- 
uate courses in law at Cornell and the Univer- 
sity of Michigan. Having fitted himself particu- 
larly to teach law, Professor Hill held chairs in 
several universities. He had taught in Stetson 
University, at Deland, Fla. ; at the University of 
Missouri ; and at the University of Kansas, at 
Lawrence, where he died. 

Professor Hill was a man of constant friend- 
ship. He was a welcome visitor at Pond Cove, 
where he spent every summer with his parents. 
He leaves a mother, a father, and one brother, 
Dr. George E. Hill, of Portland. Bowdoin is 
proud of the reputation he won in his career. 

'07. — Felix A. Burton arrived in Brunswick 
last week from Portland, Oregon, and with Mrs. 
Burton, who has been visiting her parents, will 
sail in a few days from Boston for several 
months' visit in England and Italy. Mr. Burton 
is the architect for the Reed College buildings 
and while abroad will make a study of architec-

VOL. XL! 1 1 


NO. 4 


This afternoon the White meets Tufts at Med- 
ford and the fight will be well worth watching. 
The Massachusetts team, with several weeks of 
outdoor practice, is already almost in mid-season 
form. In their previous games they have de- 
feated Cornell, Coach Coogan's former proteges, 
and have been whipped only by Brown and the 
strong Holy Cross aggregation. The team 
which will take the field for Bowdoin will un- 
doubtedly be practically the same one which 
played against Harvard last Tuesday, as follows : 
Lacasce, catcher; Eaton, first base; Daniels, sec- 
ond base; McElwee, third base; Tilton, short- 
stop ; N. Tuttle, left field ; Skolfield, center field ; 
Stetson or Rawson, right field. It is probable 
that Dodge will be in the box for Bowdoin, while 
Rawson, Stetson, or Knight will pitch against 
Andover tomorrow. Weatherill is still out of the 
game with a pulled tendon. 


An eighth inning rally which netted two runs 
won the game for Harvard against Bowdoin. 
With a Bowdoin rally in full progress in the 
sixth, big Sam Felton, Harvard's speed artist, 
was called to the slab. Two men were down at 
the time and Tilton and Daniels were on first and 
second, but LaCasce went out on a ground ball to 

The game was close and interesting. Bowdoin 
showed all kinds of pep and played her best game 
of the year in the field, although four errors were 
counted up. Dodge pitched a good game and al- 
lowed only six hits, one of them a three-bagger. 
He did not make any strike-outs but he had good 
control and showed a vast improvement over the 
Wesleyan game. 

Captain "Link" Skolfield played a stellar game 
in centerfield, accepting five chances, but making 
one error. He hit the ball for a home-run in the 
second inning, scoring Tuttle ahead of him, and 
placing Bowdoin in the lead at the time. 

Bowdoin made nine hits, three more than Har- 
vard made. All of these were made off of Frye's 
delivery. Felton had nice curves and.speed, but 
Bowdoin hit him freely but unfortunately, all the 
drives going straight into the hands of a fielder. 

Harvard started the scoring in the initial in- 

ning. Wingate got a life on an excusable error 
by Tilton and scored on two infield outs and a 
single. Bowdoin took the lead in the second on 
Tuttle's single and Skolfield's homer. Eaton fol- 
lowed with a single but Daniels and Dodge flied 
out, ending the inning. 

Bowdoin tallied again in the third. Stetson 
drew a pass and McElwee and Tuttle singled. In 
the same inning, however, Harvard scored twice, 
evening matters up. Wingate reached first while 
McElwee fumbled his grounder. Clark hit for 
three bases and scored when Gannett dumped one 
in front of the plate. Another Harvard run in 
the fifth came through the combination of a pass, 
a sacrifice and a single by Ayres. 

Eaton scored Bowdoin's final run in the sixth, 
reaching first on a safe hit to left. Daniels sacri- 
ficed and Stetson's hit to center scored the run. 

Harvard won out in the eighth. Dodge passed 
Gannett who took second on Hardwick's sacri- 
fice. Felton went out, Tilton to Eaton, Gannett 
not daring to take third on the play. With two 
strikes called, Osborne made the hit that scored 
the winning run, and a minute later scored him- 
self on a single by Frye. 

In the seventh Tuttle and Skolfield had been 
hit by pitched balls. Only one man was down at 
the time, but Eaton flied to second and Daniels 
fanned. Again in the eighth Bowdoin got a man, 
but Felton proved the master of the situation. In 
the ninth, McElwee went out at first on a weak 
hit in front of the plate. Tuttle struck out and 
Skolfield drew a base on balls, but Eaton's out 
closed the game.

Making 16 hits for a total of 23 bases, seven 
of them in one inning, the Maine Centrals de- 
feated Bowdoin at Portland Saturday by the 
score of 10 to 3. Up to the fourth inning, all 
went well, from a Bowdoin point of view at 
least, but in the fourth, with one down, the rail- 
roaders started a batting bee that did not stop 
until seven runs had been scored. A base on balls 
and an error aided in the run-getting, but in ad- 
dition to the single error that can be given under 
the scoring rules, the Bowdoin infield made sev- 
eral errors of judgment that were responsible for 
the greater part of the runs. 

Bowdoin scored first in the second, when, with 
Eaton out on a ground ball to second base, Skol- 
field hammered a two-base hit to right center 
and scored when Tilton got on through Pum- 
phrey's error. Tilton tallied when Bradbury let 
Knight's grounder go through him, but Stetson 
ended the inning by fanning. 

In the fourth, the Maine Centrals made their 
seven runs. With two men out, Rawson was sent 
to the slab. He quelled the bat fest for a time, 
but the Maine Centrals scored three more runs 
before the game was over. 

Bowdoin's final tally came in the fifth. McEl- 
wee singled to left field, stole second, went to 
third on an error by Pumphrey, and came home 
on Tuttle's single over third base. During the 
game, Bowdoin had six men left on bases.

The Bowdoin Second was defeated by Coburn 
5-3. The game — played on the Colby diamond — 
was practically featureless. Hall had some dif- 
ficulty at first in pitching from a raised mound, 
but found the plate in the third inning. The

One Bowdoin team, at least, took their oppo- 
nents into camp Saturday. While the Varsity 
was getting a hammering out on the Forest Ave- 
nue grounds the second team was piling up a de- 
cisive score against South Portland High on the 
Pine Tree grounds. The final score was 9-2 but 
never during the game was the result uncertain. 
Ragged fielding on the part of the high school 
boys was largely responsible for their defeat. 
The feature of the game was the pitching of 
Fraser '16. He retired 17 men and allowed only 
five hits. The score :

Before the next Orient appears, the annual 
quadrangular struggle for the College Baseball 
Championship of Maine will have begun. On 
May 3 all four colleges enter the lists, Bates 
meeting Maine at Orono and Bowdoin meeting 
Colby at Waterville. To attempt to show how 
one team will win the championship and another 
team finish in the cellar is worse than useless, for 
all four colleges have a habit of tricking the best 
of dopesters. However, a summing-up of the 
prospects will not be out of place. 

Each of the teams is suffering from the loss 
of veterans, particularly among the pitchers. 
Maine is handicapped by the loss of Stobie, the 
twirler who defeated Bowdoin last year on Whit- 
tier Field, while Bowdoin has lost Lee Means, 
the hero of the 18-inning Ivy Day game. In 
James and Steves, Colby has two good pitchers. 
In the Harvard game James first showed his 
form of last year. Bates is credited with hav- 
ing the two best pitchers in the state, Stinson and 
Anderson. Colby's outfield is practically new 
and her infield has been somewhat changed. 
Sturtevant and Good have left places which are 
hard to fill. 

From the form shown by the colleges in their 
games outside the state, Bowdoin has a slight ad- 
vantage over the others. The infield is one of 
the fastest in recent years while the outfield has 
hit hard and fielded steadily. It is in the box that 
Bowdoin's need would seem to be greatest, but 
that need is being well met. Dodge seems to be 
free from the wildness which kept him out of the 
box last year, while in Rawson, Stetson, and 
Knight, he has three good understudies. 

On May 3 the first entries will be made in the 
average column, the race will be on, and dope 
sheets may have to be drawn up anew. 


The New England Oratorical League's an- 
nual contest will be held at Wesleyan, Middle- 
town, Conn., Thursday evening, May 1. Bowdoin 
will be represented by Alfred H. Sweet, winner 
of the '68 prize speaking cup. Besides Mr. Sweet 
there will be representatives of Amherst, Brown, 
Williams and Wesleyan.

Music in the Air 

The Student Council has recently taken action 
in the matter of College Sings and it is hoped in 
various quarters that their idea will be carried 
through to a successful termination. Of late, the 
student body has been very prompt in taking ad- 
vantage of their opportunities. These college 
sings should be looked at in the light of one of 
the greatest opportunities of the college year. 
Never before have we had the preparation given 
by the class sings, never before have we had the 
direction of a trained musician such as Professor 
Wass, never before have we had such a large 
number of good songs to sing. Enthusiasts 
among the student body have high hopes of de- 
veloping the student singing and songs until it 
shall be one of the distinctive features of Bow- 
doin life. Certainly, the future is bright if the 
possibilities of the present are fully grasped. The 
call for the first sing will soon come. Let us 
make it a good one. 

Dramatics and the Dramatic Club 

The Masque and Gown presents Alt Heidel- 
berg this evening in Portland. It is by far the 
most ambitious attempt yet made by Bowdoin's 
Dramatic Club and those who are in touch with 
rehearsals are confident that it will be their 
greatest success. This organization, founded 
only a few years ago, has been making rapid 
strides in the last two or three years and is now a 
feature of undergraduate activity. 

There is yet much to be done before the hopes 
of those who are now actively engaged in the 
work are realized. It is only for us at this time 
to record the milestone in the club's existence 
and to express the appreciation of the general 
college body in the work of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur 
Brown, the faculty members, and the officers of 
the present organization for the great impetus 
they are giving to this valuable branch of college 


Professor Mitchell recently announced the sub- 
ject for the Pray English Prize essays. This 
prize of forty-five dollars, given by Dr. Thomas 
J. W. Pray of the Class of 1844, is awarded each 
year to the writer of the best essay on an as- 
signed subject connected with English Literature. 
The contest is open to members of the Senior 
class. The subject this year is "The Use of the 
Supernatural in Shakespeare's "Macbeth,' 'Ham- 
let,' and 'The Tempest.' " The essay should be 
at least 2500 words long. A typewritten copy, 
signed with a fictitious name, must be left at 
Room 4, Memorial Hall, not later than Wednes- 
dav, Tune 11. 


"Alt Heidelberg," which will be given at the 
Casco Theater, Portland, tonight, is by far one 
of the prettiest plays that the Masque and Gown 
has staged for many seasons. The offering is 
peculiarly fitted to a college organization as the 
characters, which are nearly all students, do not 
have to be acted, but lived by the participants. 
From a scenic point of view there are few pieces 
of note that have so many pleasing possibilities. 
In the garden scene the stage management claims 
that it has some unique features. Following the 
Portland opening there may be several other per-

The Eta Charge of Theta Delta Chi held its 
annual house party and dance at the Charge 
house last Friday afternoon and evening. The 
committee in charge of the affair consisted of 
Neil Fogg '13, Horace A. Barton '14, Ralph L. 
Buell '14, William Livingstone '15 and Arthur E. 
Littlefield '16. Lovell's Orchestra furnished mu- 
sic, and Morton catered for the occasion. 

In the afternoon was a reception which was 
largely attended by members of the faculty, stu- 
dents, town people and out-of-town guests. 

The patronesses at the dance, which began at 
nine o'clock and lasted until a late hour, were 
Mrs. Wilmot B. Mitchell and Mrs. Frank E. 
Woodruff of Brunswick, Mrs. W. C. Fogg of 
Freeport and Mrs. H. E. Cole of Bath. 

Among the guests present at the dance were 
the following: Misses Edith Monroe, Alice Fos- 
ter, Gertrude King, Emily Mansfield, Alberta 
Robinson, Dorothy True, Marion Elwell and 
Elizabeth Payson of Portland; Ruth Nearing, 
Pauline Herring, Mabel Wood, Helen Mitchell, 
Annie Hall, Alexina LaPointe, Frances Skolfield 
and Helen Snow of Brunswick; Barbara John- 
son and Ruth Capen of Augusta; Milicent Clif- 
ford of Bath; Lillian Fogg of Freeport; Ruth 
Greene of Brighton, Mass. ; Marie Fogg of West- 
brook; Viola Smith of Dorchester, Mass. 

Bowdoin, Dartmouth, Harvard, Yale, Amherst, 
Union and Brown, enjoyed a banquet and social 
evening at the Falmouth Hotel in Portland. The 
entire active chapter of Bowdoin was present. 
Prof. William A. Moody and Prof. Marshall P. 
Cram were guests. The following officers of the 
Alpha Delta Phi Association of Maine were 
elected: President, Rt. Rev. Bishop Robert Cod- 
man, D.D. ; vice-president, Dr. John F. Thomp- 
son of Portland; secretary and treasurer, Neal 
W. Allen of Portland. 


Dr. Edville G. Abbott of the Class of 1901 has 
recently received signal honors. In Paris and 
Berlin, the surgeons paid him just tribute for 
what is universally conceded to be a new discov- 
ery in surgery, termed lateral curvature. At 
Paris, he favored the Sorboune, an organization 
of the leading surgeons of France, with the pres- 
entation of a paper; and at Berlin he read a paper 
and gave a demonstration before the German 
Orthopedic Congress. 

Upon his return to America he was tendered a. 
complimentary banquet by the Cumberland Club 
of Portland, Me. 

To another Bowdoin man, Oramel H. Stanley 
of the Class of 1909, much credit is due for Dr. 
Abbott's success. It was he who allowed his. 
body to be experimented on, distorted, and then 
straightened. Bowdoin men may well be proud' 
of the spirit showed by this modern heroism.

the Alpha Delta Phi Fraternity, representing 


The second in the series of trial meets in prep- 
aration for the dual meet with Trinity on May 10 
was run off on Whittier Field Saturday after- 
noon. The Freshmen won with a score of 36 
points; the Sophomores took second place with 
31, the Juniors third with 28, and the Seniors 
last with 14. Although no times were given out 
for publication, several good marks were made 
in the short dashes and hurdles. The new men 
showed up well, and with two more weeks of 
practice remaining before the Trinity meet, they 
should be in good shape to win points to increase 
the total which Captain Haskell and the veteran 
trackmen are sure to make. The summary: 

100-yard Dash: Wyman '16, first; Smith '15, 
second; Haskell '13, third. 

220-yard Dash: Smith '15, first; Haskell '13,. 
second; McWilliams '15, third. 

440-yard Dash: Ireland '16, first; Powers '16,. 
second; Livingston '15, third. 

880-yard Run: Wright '14, first; Stowell '14,. 
second; Peters '14, third. 



Mile Run: Tarbox '14, first; Porritt '15, sec- 
ond; Eberhardt '13, third. 

Two-Mile Run: Tarbox '14, first. 

High Jump: Boardman '16, first; Garland '14 
• and Wood '16, tied for second. 

Broad Jump: Smith '15, first; Haskell '13, sec- 

Pole Vault: McKenney '15, first; Merrill '14, 

Shot Put: Leadbetter '16, first; Moulton '16, 
-second; Parkhurst '13, third. 

Discus Throw: Leadbetter '16, first; Moulton 
'16, second; Parkhurst '13, third. 

120-yard Hurdles: Floyd '15, first; Hubbard 
'14, second. 

220-yard Hurdles: Jones '13, first; Floyd '15, 
■second; A. Pratt '14, third. 

time and promise to develop into speedy runners. 
With the men whose ability we already know 
and those who always "come through" at the last 
moment, it seems that we have a very good 
chance of winning the Trinity Meet. As to dope 
on the Maine Meet, we can better judge after 
our meet with Trinity. 


Track prospects are getting brighter every day 
out on Whittier Field. Either new men are 
showing unexpected ability or the veterans are 
outdoing themselves. There is but one cloud 
"hanging over track affairs at present. Captain 
Haskell has developed a bad ankle in some way. 
The trouble is not in the bone or ligaments but 
seems to be an infection that has got into the 
muscle. However, Dr. Whittier feels sure that 
it will come around all right in a few days. 

One of the pleasantest surprises a college can 
be presented with is a "dark horse" track star in 
the Freshman class. Bowdoin track fans got 
their surprise last Saturday when Wyman '16 
■ easily won the 100-yard dash. And the fact that 
Wyman, without training or experience, beat 
men with the ability, training and experience of 
P. Smith, McWilliams and Captain Haskell, is 
enough to show that he is a sprinter with great 
possibilities. Although no time was given out 
for publication it is understood that Wyman runs 
the 100 about as fast as it has been run in this 
state for several years. Coach Finneran is confi- 
dent that Wyman will pull down a first place in 
the Trinity Meet if not in the State Meet. 

Smith '15 and McWilliams '15 are also show- 
ing good speed and form in the dashes, especially 
Smith in the 220-yard dash. Wright '14 is run- 
ning a strong, fast half and looks like a point 
taker. Leadbetter is getting the hammer and 
discus out a little farther every day. Coach 
Finneran puts him down for a couple of sure 
'firsts in the Trinity Meet. 

The only weak spot seems to be in the dis- 
tances. Tarbox '14 is the only distance runner 
•we have that has had any experience. Marshall 
'16 and Irving '16 are running stronger all the 


A large number listened with great pleasure to 
the brilliant address on "The Man of Nippur," 
given Monday evening, April 21, by Mr. Edward 
P. Mitchell '71, the editor of the New York Sun 
and the author of "Phi Chi." Mr. Mitchell's ad- 
dress was based upon his conception that the 
human mind is a constant factor in human devel- 
opment ; that all through the ages it has remained 
unchanged, and therefore the present day think- 
ers have no advantage over the men of the older 
civilizations. The scope of the address enabled 
him to draw interesting contrasts between the 
lives of the ancients and our own lives and his 
discourse was constantly illuminated by allusions, 
both classical and modern, the product of wit and 
fancy. In a most delicate manner Mr. Mitchell 
pointed out that the members of the Ibis at Bow- 
doin College are probably not superior in intel- 
lect to the members of a similar order in old 
Athens, or ancient Egypt. He also made some 
contrasts between the sons of Bowdoin, naming 
some of the graduates of the early classes, and 
paying a tribute to some of the early members of 
the faculty. After discussing various possibili- 
ties for the actual improvement of the human 
mind, including surgical and therapeutic aids, he 
reached the conclusion that the only means would 
be through the hereditary memory, and the per- 
son who is thus endowed will become master or 
mistress of the world. 

Clufi anD Council Meetings 

The Student Council held a meeting Thursday 
evening, April 24. It was decided to hold college 
sings on the Sunday evenings during the rest of 
the semester. A college customs committee as 
appointed consists of L. Smith, Wood and Leigh. 
R. Leigh '14 was elected as business representa- 
tive of the College at the New England Oratori- 
cal Contest, to be held at Wesley an, May 1. 

One of the most successful club meetings of 
the year was that of the Government Club held 
at the Beta Theta Pi House, Wednesday, April 
23. Hon. Alton C. Wheeler, the Progressive 
leader of the State Senate, talked to the body on 
the subject of Public Utilities Bill recently en- 



acted by the Legislature and which he had a 
large share in framing. After the address an in- 
formal discussion of the bill, its effects, the com- 
mission and the control of public utilities took 
place. The club was very fortunate in having 
such an expert to speak to them on a question of 
vital interest to citizens of the state. About thirty 
members were present. 

The first meeting of the newly formed biology 
club was held in the biology lecture room last 
Thursday. The constitution which had been 
drawn up by an organizing committee was ac- 
cepted and the following men were elected to of- 
fice. Philip H. Pope '14, president; Omar P. 
Badger '14, secretary and treasurer; Samuel W. 
Chase '14, vice-president. 

A large crowd enjoyed the concert given by 
the Musical Clubs at the twenty-fifth anniversary 
celebration at Thompson's store in Bath last 
Tuesday. The large floor space was cleared for 
the occasion and a dance was held after the con- 
cert. The program given was the same as that 
given in the other concerts.

ously announced.

There is to be a College Sing next Friday 
evening at 7 o'clock in Memorial Hall. This is 
to be in preparation for the Snow Song Cup con- 
test, and everyone is strongly urged to be present. 
Next Saturday there is to be a handicap golf 
tournament open to all members of the Golf Club. 
Those who wish to enter should hand in their 
names at once to Paul Donahue, together with 
the scores which they have made during April. 

Archery practice is held every afternoon from 
3 to '5 back of the Psi U house. Dr. Whittier has 
provided bows and arrows so that all may shoot 
without money and without price. All students 
who have a spare afternoon are urged to come 
and get interested in the sport. Equipment may 

be had on application at the Theta Delt house. 

The annual track and field meet of the New 
England I. C. A. A. will be held this year for the 
first time in the Harvard Stadium instead of at 
Springfield as formerly. The reasons for the 
change are chiefly financial. 

All the classes are urged to make an extra ef- 
fort to get a large number out to the rest of the 
"sings." Interest seems to be dropping off a lit- 
tle on account of the many other activities. The 
dace of the prize competition has not been defi- 
nitely decided upon but will come sometime the 
first of June. 

State Superintendent of Schools Payson Smith 
evidently realizes that Peace Day does not 
amount to much unless it is marked by some spe- 
cial observance. He has therefore asked the 
teachers of our state to set apart a little time for 
appropriate exercises. As the anniversary falls 
on May 18, a Sunday, he urges the program to 
be concluded on either the 16th or 19th.— Bruns-

of the spring regalia, a little late for Easter, will 
be Sunday, May 4. The class has also adopted 
the custom, now in vogue in a number of col- 
leges and universities, of having class canes of 
sufficient size so that each member of the class 
can carve his initials thereon.

'50, '67. — Howard University, founded by Gen- 
eral O. O. Howard '50, is meeting with great 
prosperity under the new president, Dr. Stephen 
M. Newman '67. The catalogue reveals a total 
of 1490 students, representing thirty-seven states 
together with Canada, Cuba, British West Indies, 
East India, Panama, Porto Rico, St. Andrew's 
Island, South Africa and South America. Be- 
sides being a great national university, Howard 
is also noted for its enrolment of the darker races 
of the world. 

y jy. — After being honored to the highest de- 
gree, Admiral and Mrs. Peary have departed 
from Rome. They will go first to Egypt, then to 
Germany, where Admiral Peary will lecture, and 
also to Switzerland. The couple will arrive in 
America by July 1. 

Nowhere has the Admiral been so frankly and 
sincerely praised for his achievement as in Rome. 
Mrs. Peary, furthermore, became a great social 
favorite there. Ambassador O'Brien and his 
wife gave a charming luncheon for the Pearys 
just before they left for Naples. An interested 
company of notable Americans and Italians sur- 
rounded the explorer.

'03. — The Class of 1903 is out to win the Snow 
commencement cup awarded annually to the class 
that has the largest percentage of living members 
present at commencement. A committee in 
charge of the tenth reunion of the class is com- 
posed of: Edward F. Abbott of Auburn, Samuel 
B. Gray of Oldtown, Donald E. MacCormick of 
South Framingham, Mass., Leon V. Walker of 
Portland and Thomas C. White of Lewiston. Dr. 
Francis A. Welch of Portland has been chosen 
to compile a record of the achievements of the 
members of the class. During commencement 
week, the class headquarters will be on Cleave- 
land Street. 

The College is proud not only of the large 
attendance promised by the Class of 1903, but 
also of its plan known as the Decennial Fund, 
like that of 1902 and 1904. By this scheme each 
member of the class promises to pay an agreed 
amount to the class treasurer annually for the 
first ten years after graduation. At the end of 
that period the class decides upon the object oi 
value to Bowdoin to which to devote the fund, 
as will be done by 1903 at the coming Commence- 
ment. It is hoped that other classes will follow 
the example of spirit shown by 1903. The Orient 
will be glad to receive notice of plans for Com- 
mencement which any other classes are making.

Saturday's games began the struggle which 
will last until June 6, when Bowdoin and Bates 
will meet in the last of the championship games. 
As a result of the first round, supporters of Bates 
and Bowdoin see the pennant so much nearer, the 
other two see Fortune against them at the first 
try, and all four redouble their efforts for the 
next contest. 

The standing:

Maine . o I .ooo 


For ten exciting innings, James of Colby, the 
man who held Harvard to one hit, pitched mar- 
vellous ball against Bowdoin, but it was for ten 
innings only. In the eleventh, Bowdoin's fierce 
batting rally scored four runs and gave the White 
a commanding lead. Dodge, pitching for Bow- 
doin, won his own game in the eleventh, when, 
with the bases filled, he hit for three bases and 
put the game on ice. 

Up to the final- session, it was a pitcher's bat- 
tle with neither man having the advantage. Al- 
though James struck out 13 men, four more than 
did Dodge, James allowed two more hits than 
Dodge, and gave two more bases on balls. 

Colby had a come-back in the last of the elev- 
enth, and succeeding in saving a whitewash by 
scoring one lone tally. Both sides came near 
scoring in the tenth inning, when a run for either 
side would have meant the game, but fast fielding 
prevented a score. Bowdoin played an errorless 
game while Colby made three errors, a part of 
them figuring in the runs. 

All kinds of classy ball was offered by the in- 
fielders of both teams, while some long catches in 

the outfield saved runs on more than one occa- 
sion. McElwee at short accepted ten chances 
without an error, while Eaton offered the gilt- 
edged article. Berry and Lowney played good 
ball for the losers and in the tenth, two flies 
taken by these two men kept the game going an- 
other inning. 

In the first inning, Stetson walked, but McEl- 
wee and Weatherill fanned and LaCasce died on 
an infield out. Colby was out in order. 

Daniels, Tuttle and Skolfield were out in order 
in the second, while Colby got a runner as far as 
the middle sack, only to have him left there. In 
the third, Eaton went out, short to first. Skol- 
field struck out, while Tilton flied to LaFleur. 
Lowney stepped in the way of one of "Peeler's" 
speedy benders, and stole second, but a snappy 
double play by Skolfield and McElwee killed all 
hope of a run in that inning. 

In the fourth Bowdoin's chance for a run 
looked good. With none out McElwee singled 
and stole second and third. LaCasce went out at 
first, Mac not trying for home. Weatherill hit 
the ball, but McElwee was out at the plate. Tut- 
tle singled, but it was too late. 

After Tilton had fanned in the fifth, Eaton and 
Dodge singled, but Eaton was out at third trying 
to make third on Dodge's hit. Stetson was out at 
first. Colby went out in order. Daniels replaced 
Weatherill at second. Both sides went out, one, 
two, three in the sixth, while Bowdoin repeated 
the trick in the seventh. Colby singled twice, but 
a strikeout and two infield flies ended the inning. 
The eighth and ninth innings were speedy. Stet- 
son got as far as second in the eighth, but was 
left there. In the ninth, LaCasce was. caught off 
first after getting a single. Colby went out in 
order in both sessions. 

In the tenth, Skolfield singled and took second 
on a passed ball and Tilton drew a pass. Eaton 
fanned and Dodge's hard drive was gathered in 
by Berry in centerfield. Stetson's hit advanced 
the runners. With the bases full, McElwee 
knocked a high foul that Lowney captured after 
a desperate effort. In the same inning Colby got 
a man as far as third. Cummings singled, was 
sacrificed to second, and stole third. Campbell 
fanned. Lowney walked. Tilton reached Simp- 



son's foul fly and the side was out. 

It was in the eleventh that Bowdoin's rally 
won the game. LaCasce went out, third to first. 
Daniels got on through James' errorT Tuttle 
hit for two bases and Skolfield walked. James 
threw wild trying to catch him off first and 
Daniels scored. Tilton walked, but Tuttle 
was out at home on Eaton's grounder. Then 
came Dodge's triple and Skolfield, Tilton and 
Eaton crossed the plate. 

In Colby's half, Reed and Nutting got on. 
Reed scored in a double steal, but Nutting was 
caught between first and second. Berry flied to 
Skolfield and James was out, Tilton to Eaton.

Bowdoin was defeated by Tufts April 29, on 
the Tufts Oval by a score of 5 to 3. The game 
was fast and filled with excitement from the first 

inning. Both teams played without an error. 

The feature of the game came in the third in- 
ning. Bowdoin had filled the bases with none 
out. McElwee hit a sharp grounder to Harris 
who fielded the ball to Jameson at the plate. 
Jameson doubled the play by a quick throw to 
first. LaCasce, who was on second at the begin- 
ning of the play, attempted to reach the plate but 
was caught by a quick return throw from first. 

Tufts scored in the first inning on Stafford's 
single and Lee's triple. Neither side scored again 
until the seventh when Bowdoin put three men 
across the plate on a combination of a pass, two 
singles and a two-bagger. 

Tufts nosed out a victory in the eighth by 
timely hits. Gurvin was passed and scored on 
Marzynski's triple to center field. Marzynski 
scored on a Texas-leaguer to right field by Lee. 
The other two runs were the results of singles.

By bunching their hits in the fourth, fifth and 
sixth innings and by tight fielding, Andover de- 
feated Bowdoin on the Academy's field 5-2. The 
game was practically without features except pos- 
sibly the good fielding put up by both teams. 
Sharpe and Grant pitched good ball for Andover 
and neither was hit hard. Rawson started for 
Bowdoin but retired in favor of Dodge. 

Kenney and Snell starred for Andover and 
Eaton and McElwee for Bowdoin.

In a fast game the Bowdoin 2nd team 
won from Morse High School Saturday after- 
noon by the close- score of 9 to 8. The Bath boys 
gave the college team the only scare in the 
seventh when they tied the score. This made 
our hopefuls get a hump on and take another run 
in the first of the eighth, which was the final tally 
of the contest.

Victory and Afterwards 

At six o'clock Saturday night every man in 
College was happy as a king at the news of a 
glorious victory, a game cleanly won by hard, 
errorless baseball, and at the realization that one 
step had been taken toward the winning of the 
pennant. Such a victory surely deserved a cele- 
bration. Yet eleven o'clock found every man 
morose and sullen, or excited and angry. Was 
this spoiling of the celebration due to a reversion 
to the "yagger" days not so many years ago, 
when a student could hardly venture below the 
railroad tracks alone, or did the student body 
maliciously bring down on their heads the just 
wrath of injured townspeople? 

To begin with, the only blame which can be put 
on the student body is that, instead of following 
the plans made by the Student Council, they up- 
set these plans and substituted a disorganized 
parade to the nearest picture show. Celebra- 
tions should end, as they have ended in years 
past, with cheers and songs in front of the 

Chapel. The Student Council plans these affairs 
according to old traditions and present needs, and 
we should comply with the plans of our repre- 
sentative body or come forth with open and 
answerable criticism of these plans. 

We are glad that the part which a rough ele- 
ment of the town took in Saturday night's affairs 
is in no measure a reflection of the general atti- 
tude of the townspeople toward the students. 

That the manager of the picture-show, in 
quieting an innocent, inoffensive, and harmless 
demonstration in his theatre, was well within his 
rights, is not to be denied. That two over- 
zealous officers should rush to the front and, 
with unusual perspicacity single out the quietest 
man in the crowd, forcibly eject him, and lock 
him up, is laughable, to say the least. 

The subsequent gathering of a band of men 
and their unprovoked and cowardly assaults on 
students, is rather more serious. The police, 
who had offered such excellent protection before, 
were now found wanting. Three students, on 
their way back to the campus, were attacked 
from behind. An officer who appeared on the 
scene advised that the two crowds go out on a 
side street and fight it out. So far as is known, 
this measure for the preservation of law and or- 
der has never before been advocated by the po- 
lice of any city. Needless to say, the three stu- 
dents refused the offered chance to annihilate 
their dozen assailants, and were requested to 
move along. 

To meet these strong-arm men with their own 
tactics would reflect little credit on college train- 
ing. To demand any less than our full privileges 
and rights could not be expected of us as men. 

When We Win 

In event of another celebration the Student 
Council has made plans for a celebration which 
we will remember, instead of one which we will 
be glad to forget. Let us cooperate with them, 
follow their plans, and see if it will not be more 
fun and leave us with the sweet taste of victory 
in our mouths. 


The Masque and Gown made its first appear- 
ance in Portland, April 29, presenting Old Heidel- 
berg at the Casco Theatre before an appreciative 
and enthusiastic audience. The evening was a 
great success in every way, the play is very diffi- 
cult and great credit is due to the men who took 
part for their faithful work, which made it pos- 
sible for them to play the five acts without any 



It is distinctly a little triumph for the club to 
have put on a play of this sort, and the audience 
showed plainly its enjoyment. The laughter was 
timely, the applause frequent and spontaneous, 
and there were enthusiastic curtain calls after 
each act. It was evident that the performance 
was a surprise, and a delightful one. 

The part of the Prince is one few amateurs 
could fill, and Crowell played it with power and 
distinction. Abbott as Jiittner, won a deserved 
success, and Elwell made a charming and really 
convincing Kathie. 

Jones and Leigh in their formal roles, Greene 
and Russell as students, and Donahue and Dun- 
phy as the Innkeeper and waiter did excellent 
work, and Twombly as Lutz played his part ad- 
mirably. Prof. Wass trained the members of the 
Glee Club whose singing of the student songs ad- 
ded much to the performance. 

But to a person whose name does not appear in 
the cast the greatest praise is due. Mrs. Arthur 
Brown's faithful and talented work with the 
Masque and Gown made the performance and its 
success possible. Mr. Arthur Brown is to be 
praised for the success of the admirable stage- 
settings, make-up, and scenic effects. 


The local chapter of Beta Theta Pi held its an- 
nual house party and dance on May the second.

urday. The festivities began with a dinner at 
the fraternity house, seven o'clock Friday even- 
ing, after which the hosts and their guests were

The men who are to serve on the Y. M. C. A. 
committees for the year 1913-14 were appointed 
last week under a system of arrangement which 
will undoubtedly result in greatly increased effi- 
ciency in the work accomplished by the organi- 
zation. Under this new plan all the committees 
are grouped under four heads: Administrative, 
Religious Education, Campus Service, and Com- 
munity Service; and each of these four depart- 
ments has a chairman, who has general charge of 
the committees in his department. The commit- 
tees for the coming year are composed as fol-

Maine's victory over Bowdoin and Colby's vic- 
tory over Bates Wednesday made a four-cornered 
tie for the pennant. Since Bates and Colby did 
not play Saturday while Bowdoin trimmed Maine, 
the standing is as follows :

By taking eight first, eight second, and ten 
third places, Bowdoin easily won the first dual 
meet held with Trinity by a score of 74 to 52. 
The extremely cold northwest wind that swept 
down across Whittier Field chilled competitors 
and spectators to the bone, and prevented any 
record time being set up in the track events. Yet 
running against this cold wind Phil Smith did 
the 100 in 10 2-5 seconds and the 220-yard dash 
in 22 4-5 seconds. 

The meet started with trials for the 100-yard 
dash. The first heat was won by Phil Smith with 
Hudson second. Bowdoin cleaned up the second 
heat by placing Walker and Wyman. The final 
heat was the closest and most exciting race of the 
meet. Smith, Hudson and Wyman were neck 
and neck the whole length of the course, but 
Smith by a final spurt took first by a six-inch 

Crehore of Trinity featured in the mile and 
two-mile runs, taking firsts in both. The mile 
was closely contested between Crehore and Spof- 
ford of Trinity and Tarbox of Bowdoin. These 
three ran in a group from gun to tape, Crehore 
gaining a short lead in the final spurt. 

The quarter mile was featured by the work of 
McWilliams, whose speed was bettered only by 
Capt. Haskell, and the splendid sportsmanship of 
Capt. Haskell who allowed McWilliams to take 
first and win his letter. It is acts like that which 

raise athletics above mere competition and de- 
sire to win. 

The half-mile was a close race between Wes- 
sels of Trinity and Russell and Wright of Bow- 
doin. Wessels made a splendid sprint around the 
last turn and beat Russell by a short lead. 

MacFarland of Bowdoin, who has been out of 
track athletics for two years, came back strong 
and took second place in the 120-yard hurdles. 
Trinity ran away with the first two places in the 
220-yard hurdles. Fox of Bowdoin took third. 

It was in the field events that Bowdoin proved 
especially strong, taking five first and five second 
places. All three places in the high jump were 
taken by the White. 

Hudson of Trinity threw the hammer 141 feet, 
1 inch, taking first place. Bowdoin swept the 
field in the discus throw, by placing Lewis, Lead- 
better and Moulton. 

The pole vault was fought out between Mer- 
rill and McKenney of Bowdoin and Chow of 
Trinity. The Jap went fine up to ten feet and 
looked like a sure first, but the ten-foot mark was 
too much for him. Merrill and McKenney tied 
for first. 

Hudson of Trinity was high point man of the 
meet, taking second in the 100-yard dash, first in 
(he 220-yard hurdles, third in the shot put, an<l 
first in the hammer throw. 

Phil Smith was high man for Bowdoin with II 
points. Faulkner was second with 10 points won 
by firsts in the shot put and broad jump. 

Altogether it was a glorious meet from a Bow- 
doin standpoint. Not only did we beat Trinity 
but by three more points than Maine beat them. 
The meet served its purpose, i. e., to show Bow- 
doin supporters that we have a team of point 
winners. And Trinity is only the first to feel 
"the heavy paw of the Polar Bear."

near the foul line and one a liner in left-center. 
Cobb played a stellar game in the field for Maine, 
gobbling up six chances without a miscue. Eaton 
was out of the game, having missed his train, but 
Weatherill covered first base in good shape with 
11 put-outs and only one error. 

Maine started off with a run in the opening 
session, but Bowdoin evened it up in the second, 
when Tuttle hit safely, stole second, and came 
home on an error by the left fielder. 

In the seventh, with Tuttle and Skolfield on 
and Tilton out, Daniels flied out and Dodge hit 
to pitcher. In the last of the same inning, Baker 
got a three-base hit. Two bases on balls mixed 
in with a couple of errors scored two runs. 

Then came the eighth. Stetson beat out a hit 
to shortstop. McElwee hit to right field and La- 
Casce drew a. pass. Stetson scored, but McElwee 
and LaCasce were doubled up on the play. 
Weatherill scored on Tuttle's two-bagger. Skol- 
field hit to Gilman and when Chase let the throw 
roll to the bleachers, Tuttle made the run that 
won the game. 

In the ninth Bowdoin went out in order. 
"Peeler" struck out the first two Maine batters. 
Lawry got a life on McElwee's fumble, but Cobb 
sent up a foul fly that was gathered in by Tilton.

With Maine ahead by the score of three to one, 
Bowdoin bunched three hits in the eighth and 
scored three runs, giving the game to Bowdoin 
"by the narrow margin of one run. 

The game was a pitcher's battle between Dodge 
and Driscoll, with Dodge on the better end of the 
argument. Driscoll weakened toward the close 
of the game and only fast fielding prevented 
Bowdoin from scoring more than three times in 
the last half of the game. Bowdoin made one 
more hit than Maine and Bowdoin's bingles were 
bunched better. Tuttle played a good game in 
left field, making four put-outs, one of them a fly

The Maine elephant handed the Bowdoin polar 
bear a most decided defeat on Whittier Field last 
Wednesday. Bowdoin went up in the air in the 
first inning, when four errors allowed as many 
runs to cross the plate, and came down only after 
Maine had scored nine tallies. It was a demoral- 
izing game from the Bowdoin point of view, even 
though the supporters of the White knew that 
the team was playing below its form. Only once 
in a while did the team show real signs of life. 
The intervals were long and painful. Eaton's 
two-bagger in the second started a batting rally 
which scored Bowdoin's lonely run. The rest of 
the six hits were scattered. 

McElwee, Eaton and Tilton played well, the 
latter contributing a double play unassisted. 
Weatherill showed the effect of his injuries. 

Dodge pitched good ball in spite of his poor 
support but was taken out in the fourth, as he 
had more games to pitch. Woodcock then went 
in for the first time this season. Maine touched 
the lanky Medic up for five hits and he was re- 
placed by Knight after two innings. Knight 
showed nervousness at first but steadied down 
and showed great stuff. At times Maine's best 
batters were utterly unable to solve his shoots. 

Maine furnished a fine exhibition of good base- 
ball all the way through. Driscoll, the Freshman 
pitcher, had his opponents guessing and retired 
nine men by the strike-out route.

The Bowdoin second went down to defeat be- 
fore Hebron Academy Wednesday 8 to 5 in a 
loosely played game. The Hebron batters took 
kindly to Hall's delivery, and assisted by Bow- 
doin errors, scored six runs in the first three in- 
nings. Fraser, who replaced Hall, pitched ef- 
fectively. The second team out-hit Hebron 14 to 
8, but was unable to bunch hits for runs. Kee- 
gan, Dole, and E. Tuttle furnished some heavy 
stick work. 

The second team met the Cabots Saturday af- 
ternoon, and emerged from the contest with the 
smaller end of a 6-to-2 score. The Cabots won 
by combining long hits at opportune times. 
Owing to the extreme cold, the contest was called 
at the close of the seventh inning.

The Bowdoin and Bates Musical Clubs closed 
the season Friday night with a joint concert in

A Step Forward in Dramatics 

Elsewhere in this issue appears a copy of the 
new constitution of the Masque and Gown adopt- 
ed last week. The alteration in the membership 
requirement is in line with the policy of the most 
successful dramatic clubs in other colleges and 
should have good results. Of more immediate in- 
terest, however, to the student body is the change 
which opens the managership to a competitive 
system similar to the competition for athletic 
managerships. This new scheme has been set on 
foot already by a call for candidates for the two 

As a usual thing, such a so-called minor man- 
agership is of little importance to those not im- 
mediately interested but, today, the position offers 
the greatest opportunity in this line open to the 
Bowdoin undergraduates. It is not for the man 
who wishes to expand his campus reputation or 
Bugle "honors" by the addition of another scalp; 
nor is it for the deadly average man whose abil- 

ity is measured by his ambition to do passably 
well a plainly defined task; but it is for the man 
who is willing to give freely of time and thought 
and energy without popular reward, who will 
daringly progress, who is capable of facing a big 
opportunity and do the job "a little better than 
seems necessary," a man who can make the office 
rather than have the office make him. To such a 
one the opportunity for service to Bowdoin in 
this position looms large. Masque and Gown has 
made rapid progress this college year. Its recent 
reorganization points the way to further advance. 
But, as its president recently remarked, "Next 
year will mean success or failure, progress or 
decline." Surely there are some among us ready 
and eager to plunge into this pioneering oppor- 
tunity and reap the rich reward of work well 
done for Bowdoin. 

The Season Closes 

At the Joint Concert at Lewiston last Friday 
evening the Bowdoin Musical Clubs made its last 
public bow for the season. Just a word of praise 
here for this year's organization which has 
brought such great credit to the college by its 
many successes and to Manager Crosby for his 
able execution of a long schedule including, for 
the first time, a New York concert. The excel- 
lent training by Professor Wass as well as the 
good work of leaders and members has contrib- 
uted largely to the high degree of excellence 
reached at the various performances. 

And We Did Win 

With the chapel bell announcing a glorious 
double victory, the whole student body gathered 
in high glee last Saturday evening prepared to 
express themselves in the good old way. A cele- 
bration there was, with songs and speeches and 
marching, yet it must be admitted that enthusiasm 
seemed repressed rather than expressed. The 
unfortunate incident at the railroad crossing filled 
a majority of those present with a spirit of an- 
nihilation rather than celebration, and detracted 
from the character of the evening's fun. That 
the leaders of the affair saved the procession 
from turning into a mob was, on sober thought, 
very fortunate. But the celebration on the cam- 
pus, it must be admitted, whether on account of 
zero weather, or the fact that it was too early in 
the evening, was rather devoid of real enthusi- 
asm. We do not believe the students are losing 
the spirit which expresses itself in honest enthus- 
iasm at victories won for the White. The whole 
trouble with recent celebrations is the linking of 
the parade down town with an entirely wrong 



idea. If this persists it will spoil the whole tra- 
dition. Next time, rather than march along 
grumbling vain threats at persons not worth wor- 
rying about or berating a Student Council for not 
creating an exultant spirit which we alone can 
create, let us pile the fire high, dance the war 
dance, sing, yell and exult in the way of our 
fathers. Next time, when occasion arises, let's 
really celebrate. 


As a result of the recent tournament, Captain 
Savage has picked Slocum '13 as his teammate, 
and Gardner '13 and Larrabee '16 to make up the 
other team. They are now competing in the 
State Tournament at Bates and will enter the N. 
E. Tournament at Longwood May 19. 

In their first match of the season the teams 
were defeated by the Portland County Club's 
teams in Portland last Wednesday. The results 
were as follows : — Savage and Slocum vs. Bodge 
and Dana, 3-6, 1-6, 1-6; Gardner and Larrabee 
vs. Holt and Chapman, 8-10, 8-6, 2-6, 2-6. No

The following men have been chosen for the 
trials for the Alexander Prize Speaking: — From 
1914, C. A. Brown, Buell, Cunliffe, Eaton, Gage, 
Gray, Leigh, Newcombe, Simpson, P. L. White; 
from 1915, Bacon, Elwell, Faulkner, Hall, Liv- 
ingstone, MacDonald, McWilliams, Merrill, Ram- 
say, Smith. 

The names of the Freshmen chosen and the de- 
tails are to be announced later. The trials are to 
be held the twenty-third of this month. 


Next Sunday the last college preacher of the 
year, Rev. Charles R. Brown, D.D., of New Ha- 
ven, Conn., Dean of the Yale Divinity School, 
will speak in the Church on the Hill and at the 
afternoon chapel service. 

Dr. Brown received the degree of A.B. from 
the University of Iowa in 1883, and of S.T.B. 
from Boston University in 1889. From 1896 to 
1910 he was pastor of the First Congregational 
Church of Oakland, California. Two years ago 
he became Dean of the Yale Divinity School. 

The Masque and Gown has selected "The Mer- 
chant of Venice" for the Commencement play. 
The play has nineteen parts, and as only three of 
the roles are feminine, it is especially adapted for 
presentation by college men. 

The trials will be held Thursday evening at 
seven o'clock in Memorial Hall, and it is hoped 
that a large number of men will come out for the 
play, as the club desires to give a presentation 
that will surpass anything which it has hitherto 
produced. The judges for the trials will be Prof. 
Frederick W. Brown, Prof. Wilmot B. Mitchell, 
and Mrs. Arthur T. Brown. All men who wish 
to compete for parts in the cast should read the 
play, and hand their names to Crowell '13 or 
Nixon '13, signifying the parts for which they 
wish to compete. Rehearsals will begin shortly 
after the parts are assigned, and the play will be 
staged under the direction of Mrs. Arthur T. 


Commencement week will begin on Sunday,. 
June 22, and will continue through Thursday, 
June 26. The new features of the program will' 
be the holding of the Senior Dance in the new 
gymnasium and the dedication of the gymnasium 
and the General Thomas Worcester Hyde Ath- 
letic Building. Although no definite arrange- 
ments have yet been made, it is expected that a 
baseball game between the 'Varsity and the 
Alumni will be played. The program, as ar- 
ranged by Professor Little, follows :

'84. — Rev. Oliver W. Means has resigned his 
position as pastor of the Emmanuel Church of 
Springfield, Mass., after a pastorate of nine 
years. Mr. Means has been a great fector in put- 
ting the church on an excellent basis during this 

time. Taking it as a small chapel with 150 mem- 
bers he leaves it with an elegant new edifice, over 
250 on the church rolls, and with a Sunday 
School which is almost too large for the room 
which it has. Mr. Means intends to take a much 
desired rest during which he will spend consider- 
able of his time in travel and literature, two vo- 
cations to which he has wished for some time to 
give more attention. 

'98. — It speaks well for Rev. Robert R. Marson 
of the First Parish Church, at Yarmouth, Me., 
where he has preached for the last ten years, that 
he has received from his parishioners, friends 
and townsmen such solicitation as to induce him 
to withdraw his resignation. 

'98. — There is not much doubt that President 
Wilson, urged by Senator Hollis of New Hamp- 
shire, will appoint as United States minister to 
Portugal, Charles Cogswell Smith, of Ports- 
mouth. Mr. Smith is now practicing law at 
Portsmouth and at Boston. He possesses excel- 
lent command of the Spanish and Portuguese 
languages, besides other very desirable qualifica- 
tions as an American diplomat. 

'02. — Bulletin 530 of the U. S. Geological Sur- 
vey, published last month, contains a report by 
R. B. Dole on explorations of Salines in Silver 
Peak Marsh, Nevada.

ville, has been appointed surgeon for Maine by 
the Canadian Pacific Railroad.

NO. 7 


In probably the greatest track meet ever held 
in this state Maine took first place with 47 points, 
Bates came second with 43 points, Colby third 
with 19, and Bowdoin fourth with 17 points. 

Nevers, Ashton and Meanix upset Bowdoin 
dope to the extent of about 15 points. That it 
was a wonderful meet is shown by the nine new 
records set up, the equalling of still another, and 
the extremely fast time of all the events. It is 
hardly probable that ever again in this state will 
so many records go by the board in one after- 

A loyal few, including the band, took the spe- 
cial from Brunswick Saturday morning. What 
those supporters lacked in number they made up 
in spirit while on the field. They yelled them- 
selves hoarse over the efforts of every White 
runner; cheered every new record and every 

In the morning trials Bowdoin qualified 14 
men, Bates 11, Colby 12, and Maine 8. It was 
evident even then that there was a mighty strug- 
gle scheduled for the afternoon. Captain Has- 
kell and McWilliams qualified in the 440-yard 
dash; Walker in the 220-yard dash; Leadbetter 
and Lewis in the discus ; Leadbetter, Lewis and 
Parkhurst in the hammer; Faulkner in the shot 
put; Smith, McFarland, Faulkner and Floyd in 
the broad jump. 

The opening event of the afternoon was the 
100-yard dash trials. Ashton, Nevers and Nar- 
dini, in different heats set the pace at 10 1-5 sec- 
onds. In the final the three sprinters came down 
the course shoulder to shoulder. In the last 25 
yards Nevers fought out a small lead and breast- 
ed the tape barely in front of Nardini. Ashton 
took third at Nardini's very shoulder. The time 
was 10 seconds flat. 

The mile run was easily all Maine's. Towner, 
Brooks and Power loped around in a bunch, com- 
pletely distancing the field. 

One of the best events of the meet was the 220- 
yard dash. With Ashton, Nevers and Nardini 
against each other something was bound to hap- 
pen — and it did. Again the three fliers came 
neck and neck down the course. Again, as in the 
century dash, Nevers of Bates by a wonderful 

burst of speed broke the tape. Ashton was a 
close second. The time was 22 1-5 seconds. 
(Equalling the record.) 

The 440-yard dash was a battle royal between 
Captain Haskell of Bowdoin and the speedy 
Meanix of Colby. The Colby runner took the 
pole and kept it. Haskell pushed him to his ut- 
most in the last hundred yards, finishing second 
by less than two yards. The time was 51 seconds 
flat. (Breaking the record by 3-5 seconds.) 

Woodman of Bates ran a beautiful race over 
the high hurdles, establishing a new record of 16 
seconds. He also pushed Meanix to the limit in 
the 220-yard low hurdles. Through a fault of the 
starter the timers were unable to get the flash of 
the gun and consequently no official time was 
given out. It is safe to say that it equalled record 

The half was a fight between Bell of Maine 
and Deering of Bates. Wright of Bowdoin was 
a possibility for the first half of the run. He ran 
with the leaders the first lap and dropped behind 
on the back stretch of the second round. The 
time was not equal to that of Eddie Bates, the 
old Bowdoin runner, yet 2 minutes flat is not so 

While the sprinters were breaking records on 
the cinders, history was being made in the weight 
circles and jumping pits. A new record was set 
up in every field event, and some are records 
which will stand for many a meet. 

Shepard of Bates started things going by put- 
ting the shot 2 feet beyond his old record of 44 
feet, 2 3-4 inches. Gove of Bates and Shepherd 
of Maine fought out second place, the former 
winning by a fraction of an inch. 

Gove broke his own record in the discus by six 
inches. Shepherd of Maine was a close second 
and Leadbetter of Bowdoin an easy third. The 
cheering sections began to realize that they were 
witnessing a very unusual meet and started some 
noise that lasted until the last bar was kicked off 
in the pole vault. 

Kempton of Bates set up a new record of 5 ft., 
8 1-8 in., in the running high jump, displacing 
the old record by 1-8 inch. Worden of Maine 
and Drake of Bates tied for second place. Brown 
of Bowdoin who was expected to place, failed to 
qualify in the morning. Greene was Bowdoin's 



Capt. Charlie Haskell 

only hope in the afternoon, hut the distance was 
too much for him. He made a plucky fight to the 
last kick. 

Three good men fought out the hammer throw, 
Bailey and Shepherd of Maine and Leadbetter of 
Bowdoin. Bailey took first with a beautiful 
heave of 151 ft., 43-8 in., breaking the state rec- 
ord by 10 feet and the New England record by 2 
ft., 7 in. Leadbetter took second with 131 ft., 3 
in. Shepherd of Maine was third with 125 ft., 6 

Another record went by the board in the broad 
jump, when Faulkner, the Bowdoin star, went 
out 22 ft., 43-4 in., displacing the old record of 
21 ft., 9 in. This event was all Bowdoin's, every 
point going to the White. Smith took second with 
20 ft., 10 1-2 in., and McFarland, the previous 
holder of the record, third with 20 ft., 93-4 in. 
(About here Bowdoin cheering section broke 
loose for five minutes.) 

On the outcome of the last event, the pole 
vault, depended the positions of Bowdoin and 
Colby. Maine had a sure first in Rogers. Neither 
Colby nor Bates had men in this event. Should 
Bowdoin take a second and third in this it would 
give her one more point than Colby. Rogers 
passed up the first few heights. The real fight 
was between McKenney and Merrill of Bowdoin 
and Thomas of Maine. Merrill failed at 10 ft., 
3 in., and Bowdoin's hopes were crushed. Mc- 
Kenney pluckily fought on but was beaten by 
Thomas at 10 ft., 9 in. Rogers easily took first 
with 11 ft., 65-8 in., breaking his own record by 
5-8 of an inch. He tried the 12-ft. mark but 
failed to make it. 

Of the nine new records, Bates men have four, 

Maine three, Bowdoin one and Colby one. A 
Bates man also tied one record. 

Bowdoin lost, but it was not because her run- 
ners quit. Every man that went to Maine fought 
to the very limit of his ability. All honor to these 
men who went down to defeat in the greatest 
meet ever held or likely to be held, in this state.

Of the points, Bates took six first places, three 
seconds, two thirds and tied for a second. Maine 
took five firsts, five seconds, five thirds and tied 
for a second. Colby took two firsts, two seconds 
and three thirds and Bowdoin one first, three sec- 
onds, and three thirds. 


With Dodge holding the Colby batsmen in per- 
fect control at all times of the game, Bowdoin 
Ijatted James hard in almost every inning and 
won on Whittier Field Wednesday by the score 
of nine to two. Bowdoin took the lead in the last 
half of the first inning and was never headed, 
while Colby's nearest attempt at a rally came in 
the sixth when two hits and an error scored her 
second and final run. 

Ability to hit the much-heralded James spelled 
victory for Bowdoin, while Colby's inability to 
connect safely was responsible for that team's de- 
feat. But four hits were made off Dodge's de- 
livery, Reed and Nutting making two each, two 
coming in the first and two in the sixth. "Peeler" 
retired nine men by the strike-out route and 
James fanned seven. Each pitcher issued a free 

Bowdoin made only three errors, but, unfor- 
tunately, two of these counted in the run column. 
Colby made five miscues, the greater part of them 
costly. A cold wind swept the field throughout 
the game, making perfect judgment of high flies 
almost impossible, and driving two balls fair hit 
outside the left field foul line. 

Colby started with a rush. After Simpson had 
struck out, Reed and Nutting singled and Reed 
came home when LaCasce threw wild to second. 
Bowdoin scored twice in the last of the first. 
Stetson and McElwee hit safely and scored on 
Skolfield's infield drive and Nutting's error after 
Weatherill had struck out and Tuttle had been 

Bowdoin repeated in the third. Weatherill was

All Together Now ! 

At Bowdoin the undergraduate athletic "fan" 
is a rarity. By this term we mean the type so 
popular in cigarette advertisements and clothing 
booklets; such a one as spends his afternoons in 
watching "practice" and his evenings in "doping" 
out teams, averages and winners; the man who 
never misses a game within the range of his 
pocketbook, his credit, or the "blind baggage;" 
whose throat is "aes triplex" and whose musical 
repertoire includes all the college songs. Such a 
man is capable of the fine frenzy by which we 
distinguish the native genius necessary for a 
cheer leader. 

The value of such a man is apparent. From 
him the larger colleges fill their grandstands and 
athletic treasuries. His weakness is that, like so 
many large college products, he is rather too 
much of a specialist. His interests and capacities 
are limited to his one excelling art of "rooting," 
to standing by and patting on the back those who 
are doing the work. Here at Bowdoin many such 

specialists would be disastrous to our college 
community. Here the quarterback must yell 
football signals in the fall and give signals for 
the "long yell" in the spring, the "B flat bass" 
player must also hold down the keystone sack,, 
the gold medal orator must add his well groomed 
voice to swell the volume of the "rah rahs !" 

We have been able by our small size to keep 
from giving undue emphasis to the mere "bleach- 
ers" side of athletics and require something more 
of a man than vocal enthusiasm. But there is a 
danger that, at present, we are not giving enough 
prominence to this same cheering and singing. 
Attendance at the recent M. I. A. A. track meet 
may not be the measure of our college spirit, but 
it is a fair indication of the form that it takes 
with us, and for our part we should like to see 
more of it expressed in better organized cheering, 
expert cheer leaders, and a greater variety of 
songs. We are not voicing the conclusions of the 
"Crustacean" club with their motto "it's not 
what it used to be." Bowdoin spirit is just as 
much present as it ever was. We wish only to 
emphasize that of late we have not nearly realized 
our possibilities in this kind of team support. Let's 
get together more, the whole gang of us, and 
learn to sing and cheer in unison. We have good 
songs, we have plenty of cheers. We have the 
spirit. Let's express it. 

Think it Over 

In a Sophomore's room the other day a group 
of normal, healthy fellows was discussing the 
personality and ability of various other men who, 
needless to add, were not present. All uncon- 
sciously they showed their ideas and ideals of 
college life. 

The name of Doe, a man who stands near the 
head of his class, was brought up. A big, tanned 
fellow quickly said: "Yes, he gets good marks 
but I don't think he has much to him, he plugs 
for everything he gets." A chorus of approval 
showed that everyone agreed. 

The talk went on and another man, Roe, be- 
came the object of comment. A Junior added to 
the verbal bouquets by saying: "There's a smart 
fellow for you, he could pull straight A's if he 
would try." Someone asked: "Has he ever got 
an A?" "Well, no, but he could if he wanted 

We think this typifies the general attitude. The 
able man doesn't work, he doesn't have to. Only 
dull and stupid people "grind" and they should 
be and are looked down upon. We well remember 
a truly brilliant member of last year's Senior 
class who was so afraid that some one would 



catch him studying, and hence he would lose his 
reputation for getting results without effort, that 
he always had a popular magazine on his desk. 
When anyone opened the door, down went Hor- 
ace or Plato on the floor, and the visitor would 
find our Phi Beta Kappa man immersed in a story 
by Oppenheim and would go on his way marvel- 

We expect persistency and work from the men 
who try for our teams, and pour the vials of our 
wrath on the sprinter who will not sprint. But 
we glorify the student who will not study and 
very, very often we are apt to regard the fact 
that a man doesn't study as proof positive that 
he is a student. Do we not realize that nothing 
worthy of mention can be accomplished without 
hard, disagreeable toil ? We should judge by ef- 
forts and results, not by real or fancied poten- 
tialities. By our present attitude we are encour- 
aging superficiality in work, confirming loafers 
in their laziness, and detering men from study. 
Can true scholarship thrive in such an atmos- 
phere, and is not the foremost purpose of the 
college to turn out scholars? 


It is with great pleasure that the Orient an- 
nounces the honor given the Quill by the Wil- 
liams Literary Monthly recently. It is interest- 
ing to note that the Quill was ranked fourth by 
the same monthly two years ago, last year it was 
given second place, and this year it heads the list. 
The Quill also received high praise recently from 
the Randolph-Macon Monthly. 

In the April number of the Williams Literary 
Monthly the editor has chosen "the customary 
'five-foot shelf of good reading" of the ex- 
changes received during the closing year. At the 
left of the shelf stands The Bowdoin Quill, fol- 
lowed by The Columbian Monthly, The Smith 
College Monthly, The Vassar Miscellany, The 
Mount Holyoke, The Nassau Lit, The Yale Lit 
and others. 

The following tribute is paid to The Quill : 

"The Bowdoin Quill, tiny and modest, not over- 
burdened with material, but possessing a steady 
and prevailing tone of careful selection and sane 
judgment. In its general impression it seems the 
least amateurish of the college monthlies." 


At their election last week the Musical Clubs 
elected Samuel West '15 leader of the Glee Club, 
Horace A. Barton '14 leader of the Mandolin 
Club, Earle S. Thompson '14 manager of the 
clubs and Philip L. Card '15 assistant manager. 

In spite of the fact that they have taken the 
longest trips ever attempted by the clubs, the new 
manager finds the clubs in excellent condition fi- 
nancially, and with prospects for another season 
as successful as this one has been. 


Both Bowdoin teams won in the trials of the 
Maine College Tennis Championships at Lewis- 
ton last week, but both lost in the semi-finals, 
leaving Colby and Bates to fight it out in the 
finals. Tomblen and Woodman of Bates won the 

In the singles, Captain Savage won both his. 
sets in both the trials and the semi-finals, but 
lost in the finals to Foster of Colby. Savage 
played a defensive back court game, while Foster 
ran to the net at every opportunity. In the dou- 
bles, the team work of the winners was excellent, 
the swift drives of Tomblen being backed up 
by the steady returns of Woodman.

According to figures given out Sunday in a 
Portland paper, Bowdoin, Colby and Maine have 
practically the same batting and fielding aver- 
ages in the Maine College series, while Bates is 
in each case a poor fourth. With Bowdoin's two 
remaining games with Bates, it looks good for 
Bowdoin to win the pennant. Maine has scored 
■22 runs, Bowdoin 18, Bates 10 and Colby 7.

The game with Brunswick High Thursday af- 
ternoon ended the schedule of the Bowdoin sec- 
ond baseball team. Eight games were played, 
three of which were won by the second team, 
while the second team made 48 runs against 57 
for its opponents. Elwell '15, assistant manager 
of the 'varsity, managed the team, while "Oba- 
diah" Gardner '13 was appointed captain. The 
men who played in the greater part of the games 
are: Fraser '16, Minott '15, Keegan '15, Kelley 
'16, Hall '14, Dole '13, Gardner '13, Woodman '16, 
Stuart '16, Wiggin '13, E. Tuttle '13, Larrabee 
^16, Nixon '13, Allen '15, Rogers '15, Olson '16, 
Coombs '14 and Coxe '15. 

The team served its purpose in keeping a num- 
ber of men at work throughout the spring and in 

training possible 'varsity material for another 

The Bowdoin Second team came across 
Thursday afternoon with a 10 to 8 victory over 
Brunswick High. The game lasted ten innings 
and was marked by free hitting and numerous 
errors on both sides. The feature of the contest 
was the batting of Keegan, who scored three hits, 
including a two-base drive in the tenth with two 
men on bases. The score by innings :

The broad jump was won at only 21 ft., 4/4 in- 
Thursday afternoon Leadbetter threw the ham- 
mer 142 feet, good for an easy second, but was 
unable to stay in the ring Friday. 


Johnston of Amherst for the second time won 
the N. E. Tennis Tournament at Longwood last 
week. Bacon and Richards of Wesleyan won 
the doubles. Capt. Savage and Slocum of Bow- 
doin were defeated in the first round of doubles 
by Bacon and Richards of Wesleyan 6-1, 6-1. 
Savage won his first match in the singles from 
Greene of Brown 6-4, 6-4, but lost to Cutler of 
Williams 6-2, 6-4. 


Harry Faulkner's name will be placed upon the 
Henry A. Wing Cup which was presented to the 
College, last year, by Mrs. Grace Wing of Au- 
burn in memory of her husband, Col. Henry A. 
Wing of the Class of 1880. The name of Bow- 
doin's high point winner in the Maine Intercol- 
legiate Track Meet, each year, is placed upon the 
cup. Faulkner won five points for Bowdoin this 
year by taking first place in the broad jump. Last 
year the names of C. B. Haskell, Jr., winner of 
the 440-yard dash, and H. A. Lewis, winner of 
the hammer throw, were placed upon the cup. 


Men who have been nominated by a vote of the 
Alumni by mail for the position of Overseer of 
the College to replace the vacancy left by the 
death of Herbert M. Heath '72, are : 

Lewis Albert Burleigh '91 of Augusta, John 
Clair Minot '96 of Boston, Charles Howard Gil- 
man '82 of Portland, and Rev. John Hastings 
Quint '97 of Brunswick. This election is in 
charge of the committee on the Overseers nomi- 
nations and of the general association of Alumni. 


Plans have already been made for the Y. M. 
C. A. Bible Study classes next year and two 
meetings of the leaders have been held. Two 
courses will be given, one for Freshmen and one 
for upper-classmen. The first course will use 
for a text "The Master's Standards of Conduct," 
which takes up some of the most outstanding 
problems of a first-year man's life and the way 



Christ faced similar problems. The other course 
will use "The Manhood of the Master." The 
study will extend over twelve weeks. The leaders 
of the Freshmen courses will be West, Little, 
Churchill, Ramsdell, Fuller, Foster, Fortin, Say- 
ward, Livingstone, Richardson, A. Lewis, Raw- 
son, Canney, Stone, Hescock and J. L. McCon- 
aughy, normal class leader. The leaders of the 
other courses will be McWilliams, MacCormick, 
Gray, Merrill, Leigh, Hamblen, Simpson, Badger, 
Rodick, C. Brown and Leigh, normal class leader.

This year's Interscholastic Tournament was 
undoubtedly the first of its kind ever played in 
this state. Because of the steady rain Friday and 
Saturday, the matches were played on the clay 
courts in the Hyde Athletic Building. Kent's 
Hill won the doubles, while Purington of Ed- 
ward Little, the winner of the singles in the Bates 
Tournament last year, carried off the singles cup. 
Some fast matches were played, particularly be- 
tween Cony High and Kent's Hill. 


Preliminaries : Purington of Edward Little de- 
feated Flynt of Cony High, 8-6, 6-1. Woodman 
of Portland High defeated Leighton of Lewiston, 
6-0, 7-9, 6-4. Little of Brunswick defeated Kent's 
Hill entry by default. 

Semi-finals : Woodman defeated Little, 
6-2, 6-1. Purington drew by. 

Finals : Purington defeated Woodman, 
6-i, 6-2. 


Cony beat Brunswick, 6-0, 6-2. 
Portland beat Edward Little, 6-2, 4-6, 7-5. 
Lewiston beat Coburn by default. 
Kent's Hill beat Hebron by default. 


Cony beat Portland, 6-2, 6-1. 
Kent's Hill beat Lewiston, 6-0, 6-0. 


Kent's Hill beat Cony, 6-0, 3-6, 6-2, 6-4. 

The teams were made up as follows : Bruns- 
wick, Little, Mitchell ; Cony, Flynt, Johnson ; Ed- 
ward Little, Banks, Rogers ; Kent's Hill, Gordon, 
Richardson ; Lewiston, Leighton. Ireland ; Port- 
land, Strout, Schlosberg. 



To the Students of Bowdoin College: 

The Maine Intercollegiate Athletic Association 
wishes to notify the public that the so-called Sou- 
venir Program sold on the special train and in 
the vicinity of Alumni Field, Orono, Maine, at 
its 19th Annual Championship Meet was a pri- 
vate enterprise conducted by Morris and St. 
Onge of the University of Maine without the ap- 
proval of the Association. These programs were 
published after permission had been refused by 
the Association and since the information they 
contained was unauthorized and inaccurate their 
object must have been to defraud. The Associa- 
tion regrets this unhappy incident and will see to 
it that it does not happen in the future.

As to Communications 

In publishing our first "communication" since 
the beginning of the present volume we take oc- 
casion to rejoice at this revival of a very useful 
employment of our columns. The Orient, in 
printing such letters, does not bind itself to the 
support of any of the views presented and is al- 
ways glad to print articles with opposite or con- 
trasting opinions. The recent Library changes, 
dealt with in the present communication, have 
caused considerable comment on the campus and 
we are sure that the matter will receive whatever 
attention it deserves. 

An Important Election 

In a few days the nominations for officers to be 
voted upon at the spring elections will be made 
public. The purpose of this early announcement 
is to make possible a more careful and deliberate 
choice. Student Council and Athletic Council 
members, officers and the various athletic man- 

agerships are positions which require the most 
able and influential men in the undergraduate 
body. On these officers to a great degree will 
depend the successful issue of many of the prob- 
lems which will have to be faced next year. It 
is the plain duty of every member of the Asso- 
ciated Student Body to inform himself as to the 
qualifications of all candidates and to cast a vote 
free and fair. We are past the day of combina- 
tions. The tendency to carelessness, however, is 
one which we must likewise avoid. 

A Sane Attitude 

Much space in newspapers and comic weeklies 
is, at present, being devoted to the discussion and 
explanation of the so-called "new dances." At a 
number of the leading educational institutions 
various faculty and student authorities have 
placed prohibitions on the multifarious steps and 
twists of recent vogue. In all these restrictive 
measures there has been a prevailing difficulty in 
keeping up with the latest terpsichorean inven- 
tions. The self-appointed censors have been at 
their wits-end to adequately keep pace with the 
latest importations from the Barbary Coast and 
poultry yard. No sooner have they catalogued 
the undesirable and desirable among these fads 
than others have appeared. 

In contrast with this manner of treatment we 
note the attitude of the Ivy Committee of the 
Junior Class on this question. In accordance 
with the Bowdoin way of looking at such things, 
they consider dance steps a matter of individual 
judgment and taste. As having official charge 
of this Bowdoin function they accept willingly 
the usual responsibility of guaranteeing to all the 
guests that the affair will not be marred by un- 
gentlemanly or improper conduct but do not at- 
tempt to condemn any dance as such. With this 
sane view of the question it is safe to say that the 
big college social affair will not be the occasion: 
for giving to anyone present anything but a high, 
opinion of the College. 


Editor of the Orient. 

Sir: May I take up a little of the valuable 
space of your columns to voice a protest against 
the latest crime on the campus? I refer, of 
course, to the recent transformations in Hub- 
bard Hall. Is it to offset the recently-established 
course in Fine Arts that the authorities have in- 
flicted upon us this example of how not to do 
things? To ruin absolutely the dignity and 
beauty of the entrance hall in the Library was- 



not, presumably, the motive of those responsible 
for these changes ; yet that is what has been done. 
Without rhyme or reason, one of the finest pieces 
of architecture we possess has been turned into 
an example of vulgar mediocrity. Instead of a 
stately charm, the main characteristic of the hall 
is now a commonplace ugliness. 

The excuse given for this rearrangement is 
that the array of book cases, etc. serves to break 
the echo, and so protects men studying in the 
reading room from disconcerting sounds which 
emanate from the seminar rooms above. Grant- 
ing, for the sake of the argument, that many 
readers are so disturbed, does this transformation 
effect the desired result? Again, is this distor- 
tion of beauty into ugliness the only way in 
which frequenters of Hubbard Hall can obtain 
the peace they so desire ? To many it seems pur- 
chased at too high a price. 

I remain etc., 



The Western Maine Theta Delta Chi Associa- 
tion was formed in Portland Saturday evening by

Bowdoin Chapter of Delta Upsilon held its an- 
nual house-party last Friday evening and Satur- 
day. The program included a reception and 
dance Friday evening. A sail down the New 
Meadows River and a shore dinner at the Gurnet 
Saturday was prevented by the rain. 

In the receiving line at the reception were Mrs. 
Frank E. Woodruff, Mrs. C. C. Hutchins, Mrs. 
Paul Nixon and Mrs. William Hawley Davis. 
Mrs. G. Allen Howe poured coffee, Mrs. Samuel 
Thompson of Portland served sherbet, and Mrs. 
Samuel B. Furbish ladled punch. 

The committee in charge was composed of Ed- 
ward O. Baker '13, Lester B. Shackford '13, 
Samuel W. Chase '14, Clifford T. Perkins '15, 
and J. Glenwood Winter '16. 

Among the young lady guests were the follow- 
ing: Misses Marion Irving, Marion Smart and 
Amy Baker of Portland, Misses Bertha Nelson 
and Susan Chase of Lowell, Mass., Misses Kath- 
erine Buffum and Grace Walker of Rockland, 
Misses Anne Dudley and Margaret Arnold of 
Waterville, Misses Erma Farrar, Eleanor Brad- 
lee, Pauline Hatch and Vivian Lemont of Bath, 
Misses Olive Nutter, Helen Snow, Lorette La- 
Pointe, Anne Hall, Alexina LaPointe, Helen 
Fiske, Yvette LaPointe, Helen Mitchell, Clare 
Ridley and Isabelle Pollard of Brunswick, Misses 
Alzada Bailey and Jennie Bailey of East Poland, 
Miss Merle McVeigh of North Adams, Mass., 
Miss Dorothy Chaney of Topsham, Miss Jeanne 
Moulton of Cumberland Center, Miss Evangeline 
Redman of Dexter, Miss Charlotte Nevens of 
Auburn, Miss Alice Hurley of Bowdoinham, Miss, 
Beulah Seavey of Ogunquit and Miss Miriam 
Schafer of Kingfield. 

Gordon Busfield, Hamilton '11, was also among 
the guests. 

The delegates from the other fraternities at the 
reception were as follows : from Alpha Delta 
Phi, Samuel West '15; from Psi Upsilon, Ray E. 
Palmer '13; from Delta Kappa Epsilon, Law- 
rence Irving '16; from Zeta Psi, Harold W. 
Miller '13; from Theta Delta Chi, Maurice W. 
Hamblen '14; from Kappa Sigma, Philip R. Fox 
'14; from Beta Theta Pi, Elden H. Austin '15; 
from the Bowdoin Club, Charles A. Hatch '13. 


By defeating Maine in the Maine College base- 
ball series last week, Colby passed Maine and 
Bates and is now second to Bowdoin. No other 
games were played in the league last week, Bow- 
doin remaining in the lead by the same comfort- 
able margin of 250 points. 

The standing: 

Won Lost Ave. 

Bowdoin 3 1 .750 

Colby 2 2 .500 

Maine 2 3 .400 

Bates 1 2 .333 

Bowdoin and Bates will play at Lewiston May 
30 and at Brunswick June 6. The exhibition 
game between these two teams for May 31 has 
been cancelled and no other game will be placed 
on Bowdoin's schedule to take its place. The 
game on June 6 will be the regular Ivy game. 
From a comparison of the work of the two teams 



in games with other colleges, the opinion of prac- 
tically all who have been following the game is 
that Bowdoin will win. Bates is sadly handi- 
capped by the injury to Griffin, her captain and 
catcher, who is in bed with a broken leg. Bates' 
twirler, Anderson, is a hard nut to crack and it is 
in him that Bates will place her strongest trust. 
If Bowdoin wins both these games she has the 
pennant cinched ; if she loses one she has more 
than a fair chance, while if she loses both, she 
will probably be tied with either Colby or Maine. 

Courses 2 and 3 are elective for Sophomores, 
Juniors and Seniors. Courses 3, 4, 5, 6 are elec- 
tive for Juniors and Seniors. 


Students desiring credit for work done in Sum- 
mer School must present a statement in writing 
to the Dean, indicating the school they desire to 
attend and the courses to be taken there for which 
they wish to receive credit at Bowdoin. The ap- 
proval of the Dean must be secured for the insti- 
tution which they desire to attend, and any 
courses which they wish to substitute for re- 
quired courses at Bowdoin must be approved by 
the head of the Department concerned.

The Freshman Banquet will be held at the Con- 
gress Square Hotel in Portland, June 7. The 
committee has made arrangements for a big time 
and it is up to the class now to support them. 
Tickets may be had from members of the com- 
mittee and no one will be admitted to the banquet 
without one. Each delegation is to elect one of 
its members for a response. The names of these 
men must be handed to the toastmaster (Wyman) 
at once in order to get them on the menu. Every 
man in the Freshman Class should make a special 
effort to attend this banquet and help make it a 


As a result of a conference of the managers of 
Baseball, Football and the Musical Clubs with a 
committee of the Faculty, uniform regulations 
for the arranging of schedules were adopted and 
approved by the Faculty. The scheme is as fol- 

"The managers of the following organizations 
shall arrange their schedules on the following 
basis : The absences for the Musical Clubs shall 
not exceed five working days ; for the football 
team six working days; and for the baseball team 
seven working days. An absence for a working 
day shall be understood to mean absence from 
chapel and the whole day's recitations. The ab- 
sence beginning after 10.30 shall be considered 
two-thirds of a working day, except on Saturday, 
when such absence shall be considered one-third 
of a working day. Absence for the afternoon 
shall be considered one-third of a working day. 
No account is taken of absence from Sunday 

This system removes the trouble arising in the 
past on account of approval following the ar- 
rangements for games. The number of days 
needed for trips during a schedule was deter- 
mined from the managers' estimates. 

"Carriage. Carriage to Northfield Camp 
Grounds." In less than a month from today, sev- 
eral hundred college men from all over the 
United States will be greeted somewhat as above 
as they alight at the station at East Northfield, 
Massachusetts. The conference opens Friday 
evening, June 20, and all that day the large buck- 



boards will be busy carrying men to the camp- 

From then until the conference closes, June 29, 
there will be "Some Time" around Northfield. 
The fun will begin at the first meal when the 
various college yells will be heard and from then 
on there will be as much enthusiasm and spirit as 
if they were all attending some big football game 
or other athletic contest. 

There will be an opening meeting at the audi- 
torium Friday evening, but the conference proper 
will not begin until Saturday morning, when some 
such program as follows will be carried out: 
7.30-8.30, Breakfast; 8.30-1 1.30, Groups in Bible 
Study, Mission Study, etc.; 11.30-12.30, Auditor- 
ium Meeting; 12.30, Lunch; Entire Afternoon, 
Recreation ; 6.00, Dinner ; 7.00, Outdoor meeting 
on "Little Roundtop," with addresses on Life 
Work; 8.00, Auditorium Meeting. 

The whole program is so excellent that you can 
hardly afford to miss going at least once during 
your college course. You obtain a big inspiration 
from listening to the great speakers, all men like 
John R. Mott and Robert E. Speer, you have a 
splendid opportunity to meet a large number of 
men from other colleges, and you have a fine 
chance to play tennis or baseball or go out on 
walks to the most beautiful places imaginable. 
There is always a series of baseball games be- 
tween the different colleges for the championship 
of the conference and on the big "Carnival Day" 
there is a track meet in which anyone can enter. 

Many fellows who have been at Northfield in 
years past say it is well worth while, even to wit- 
ness the wonderful celebration on "Carnival 
Day" alone. It is doubtless one of the most ex- 
tensive affairs ever carried out by college men. 
The delegates form in a long line, each college 
having a characteristic costume, and after march- 
ing into the auditorium give their different songs 
and cheers. It is all under the best of manage- 
ment and is really for many men the greatest 
event they ever experienced. The evening's pro- 
gram is closed by a huge bon-fire some sixty feet 
high, around which the whole conference makes 
one long circle and run until the heat drives them 

There will be about a hundred men from both 
Yale and Harvard and the whole body will num- 
ber well up to the thousands. How many Bow- 
doin men are going to share in its enjoyment and 
inspiration ?

The class in Education 2 met Thursday evening 
with Prof. McConaughy at his home. Mr. John

Jack gave the class a very interesting talk.

NO. 9 


The festivities of Ivy Week began last night 
with the presentation of Alt Heidelberg by the 
Masque and Gown, the College Dramatic Club. 
The play was given in the Cumberland Theatre 
and had the same enthusiastic reception that 
marked its presentation in Portland April 29. 
Crowell as the Prince, Abbott as Jiittner, and El- 
well as Kathie played the principal roles admirab- 
ly, while Leigh, Jones, Twombly and Dunphy did 
excellent work. The singing of the student songs 
by members of the Glee Club added much to the 
success of the performance.

Artistic excellence and simplicity are distin- 
guishing marks of the sixty-eighth volume of the 
Bowdoin Bugle, issued this morning. The editors 
have wisely followed the order and arrangement 
of previous volumes and the new departments 
have been arranged with consistency. The most 

striking feature is the addition of a large number 
of photographic illustrations and snap shots, 
which serve to enliven the three hundred and 
twelve odd pages of material. The volume is 
typographically perfect. 

The book is dedicated to Hon. DeAlva Stan- 
wood Alexander, LL.D., of the Class of 1870. 
The cover is green with a simple design in gold. 
The department devoted to the "grinds" is very 
carefully selected and deals with the usual butts 
of the campus wits not neglecting the "esteemed 
contemporary" from whose pages an unusually 
large number of quotations are made. The car- 
toons in this department are above the average 
of previous volumes as is the illustrating through- 
out the book. 

On the whole the present volume represents a 
consistent spirit and is attractive. It retains what 
has proved a very serviceable manner of treat- 
ment in previous volumes and pleases especially 
in the cuts and drawings of which there are a 
larger number than ever before. Four hundred 
copies have been printed. 


The Orient goes to press too early to record 
the result of the game with Bates Ivy morning. 
On this game rested a championship. It was the 
last game of the season for Bowdoin and the 
farewell game for Capt. Skolfield, Dodge and Til- 
ton, three star players. 

The standing of the teams up to Wednesday's 
game between Bates and Colby is as follows : —

Alfred Watts Newcombe, the Class Orator, 
took for his subject, "The Progressive Move- 
ment." After tracing the expansion of the germ 
of our national existence, the principles on which 
our country is based, through the Revolutionary 
period, the formation of the Constitution, and the 
early history of the newly made nation, Mr. New- 



combe took up our present vital issues, speaking 
in part as follows : 

"The paramount issue confronting the Ameri- 
can people today, to which these principles are to 
"be applied is economic in character. In accord- 
ance with his faith, as a means of stimulating in- 
dustry, Hamilton outlined the policy which was 
first applied in the protective tariff of 1816. Un- 
der its benign influence manufactures sprang into 
existence. Fostered by its continuance and en- 
couraged by the manifest advantages of large 
scale production, these manufactures speedily as- 
sumed great proportions. Competition became 
cut-throat, and, out of the struggle for existence, 
as a natural evolution, gradually issued agree- 
ments, mergers, combines, and trusts. 

"But it is not these great trusts alone that have 
alarmed our wisest statesmen and awakened a 
national sentiment. It is the fact that those in 
control of one industry have with the capital at 
their command gained control of other indus- 
tries. The world of business has become the 
kingdom of a few millionaires. As President 
Wilson has expressed it, 'the dominating danger 
in this land today is not the existence of great 
industrial combinations — that is dangerous 
enough in all conscience — but the combination of 
the combinations — of the railways, the manufac- 
turing enterprises, the great mining projects, the 
great enterprises for the development of the na- 
tional water powers of the country, threaded to- 
gether in the personnel of a series of boards of 
directors into a community of interests more for- 
midable than any conceivable combination that 
dare appear in the open.' 

"Ardently desiring to acquire further posses- 
sions, this millionaires' kingdom has pursued the 
most ruthless methods. Not content with the con- 
trol of the industrial world, it has reached out and 
grasped the financial world. Money could not be 
obtained for the promotion of a new enterprise 
when that enterprise would in any way antago- 
nize the interests of the kingdom. Inventions 
have been purchased and cast aside; promoters 
have been thwarted ; and whenever a new con- 
cern has appeared all available forces have been 
brought to bear in the attempt to crush it out of 

"Important though this possession has proved, 
yet, in a supreme endeavor the kingdom has 
striven to obtain control of the last great for- 
tress of the American people — the government 
itself. Fortune has favored its efforts in this 
direction. The development of organized politi- 
cal parties, each eager to win and ready to use 
any method, however costly it might be, has given 
rise to the employment of large sums of money. 

To whom then was it more natural for parties 
and campaign managers to turn than to those 
who had money — to the ambassadors of the king- 
dom ? Such contributions were not made, we 
may be certain, without a reasonable assurance 
of favor after election. These ambassadors were 
not wholly impartial, not wholly unaware of their 
kingdom's interests. But that these interests 
might not be forgotten after election they were 
represented by lobbyists on the floors of Con- 
gress, at committee meetings, and in the sessions 
of state legislatures. More than that they came 
to nominate and elect officers to suit themselves ; 
they influenced the appointment of judges, they 
passed laws regarding revenue and appropria- 
tion. Whenever a bill was introduced which in 
any way endangered their welfare, they fought it 
tooth and nail. They were never weary of point- 
ing out how the Constitution, that wonderful 
document, guaranteed rights of personal liberty, 
allowing a man to carry on a lawful business 
without interference from the government, and 
ensured a recognition of state rights so that cor- 
porations chartered by the states were to be sub- 
jected to Federal Jurisdiction only as a last re- 
sort. They have regulated the enforcement of 
law as well as the enactment of new laws. They 
have checked a further discussion of individual 
equality and social justice when these terms were 
understood to mean equal opportunity and equal 
protection. Fortunately they had not secured 
complete control. The last rampart had not yet 
surrendered. The fight was still going on, when, 
from the distance, there came bugle calls of re- 
enforcement, and those patriotic citizens in the 
fortress took new courage. 

This reenforcement was the vanguard of the 
great Progressive Movement. Originated in the 
West, where conditions and sentiments of equal- 
ity were most marked, under the leadership of 
men like LaFollette, it first manifested itself in 
the revolt of the Insurgents in Congress. Its 
purpose — judging from the methods pursued — 
was to check the alarming growth of corporate 
influence, to insure for all time the control of our 
government by the people. In the choice of 
methods we may observe the trend of opinion re- 
garding those principles of individual liberty, of 
state rights, and of constitutional interpretation, 
which we found to be underlying our national 
development. Two methods have been pursued — 
one of expansion, the other of restriction. The 
first of these has been the expansion of individ- 
ual rights and privileges. The rights guaranteed 
by the Constitution have in no wise been aban- 
doned; tbey are still regarded as inviolable. 
Moreover, by federal and state legislation — such 



as pure food and employers' liability laws — this 
movement has endeavored to safeguard the social 
and economic relations of the individual citizen 
in his every day life. And that he might not be 
deprived of political control, there have been en- 
acted such measures as the Initiative and Refer- 
endum, Direct Primaries, Popular Election of 
Senators, and the Recall. 

"The second method of ensuring popular con- 
trol of the government has been to restrict cor- 
porate wealth. Herein was revealed the opinion 
regarding state rights and constitutional inter- 
pretation. The security of corporations from 
national interference was urged on the ground 
that they had been chartered by the states. The 
tendency, however, was to a stronger federal 
government. To secure it, not only has the Con- 
stitution been interpreted broadly, but, when nec- 
essary, the Movement has advocated that it be 
entirely disregarded as out of date. This method 
of restriction has had two phases of application : 
first, in the application to the individual who has 
been reached through the income and inheritance 
taxes; and second, the more important phase, in 
its application to corporate wealth as a whole. 

"This second phase was a determining factor 
in the last national election. In his addresses of 
a year ago, Colonel Roosevelt urged not only so- 
cial reform, and the recall of judicial decision, 
but also governmental supervision of the trusts. 
Because of his personality, his widespread popu- 
larity, and the lure of his propaganda, he soon — 
in spite of all third term opposition — gained a 
large following. The plea for social justice and 
for the judicial recall — divested of Roosevelt's 
personality — would never have given rise to a 
new party. The need of social justice was widely 
recognized and affected all the parties. Nor was 
the Recall sufficient ground for the establishment 
of a third party. Its only basis then lay in its 
theory of trust supervision. To this the old Re- 
publican party could not agree, either because its 
policy was dictated by outside influence, or else 
because the source of the proposal was too de- 
cidedly obnoxious.. At any rate we may regard 
one of these to have been the reason, inasmuch 
as that party continued to insist upon its policy 
of a high protective tariff— literally feeding the 
trusts, without so much as asking to control 
them. Nor could the Democratic party agree to 
the supervision theory, because it implied that 
monopoly had come to stay, that competition was 
a relic of antiquity. The Democratic party, not 
believing the era of competition to have been 
passed, pledged itself to maintain that era 
through a gradual reduction of the tariff, thus 

exposing our great industries to the competition 
of the world. 

"Because of this view the Democratic party 
carried the day. It made comparatively few 
gains, but succeeded in keeping its lines intact. 
This the Republican party failed to do, and the 
newly organized Progressives were, of course, 
not strong enough to win the election. 

"President Wilson has appealed for the aid of 
all progressive citizens regardless of party affilia- 
tion. He has appointed a progressive cabinet and 
inaugurated a thoroughly progressive policy. So 
far as social welfare is concerned, he has adapted 
Roosevelt's proposals to his own ends. Should 
the tariff act, however, prove to be a failure, 
should it be shown that monopoly is in these mod- 
ern times the only adequate way of doing busi- 
ness, then the Democratic party will four years 
hence be relegated to the background, to be suc- 
ceeded by the Progressive party with its theory 
of trust supervision. 

"Such is a reasonably safe prediction. But the 
American people must not forget that, if it is ful- 
filled, the promises of Karl Marx's argument for 
socialism will have been established, and this 
country will be fairly on the road in that direc- 
tion. Nor should we forget that progress is high- 
ly contagious, and that under its name and guise 
we are likely to do many things that are virtually 
retrogressive. Yet should we ever enter upon 
any sort of socialistic era, let us fondly hope and 
fervently pray that such entrance may come, not 
as a result of tumult and fraternal bloodshed, but 
as a peaceful and natural evolution, in the higher 
development of mankind." 

The Ivy poem by Kenneth A. Robinson de- 
scribed the Birth of the Ivy Vine on Earth, mak- 
ing it the gift of Bacchus to the newly formed 
human race. The poem, which is too long to be 
given in full, opens with a description of the re- 
peopling of the earth after the flood, following 
the Pagan mythology: 
The waters obeyed, and the seas returned to their 

shores, as once they had left them, 
Aye, the quieted seas went back to border and 

beach assigned them, 
And the two who were spared from the floods 

which smote the foolish lands, and bereft 

Wandered over the desolate earth, casting their 

stones behind them. 

Casting their stones till each stone took shape as 
it fell from the hand of the caster, 



Blood and bone were born of the stone, oh, who 

shall deny the glory? 
Even as marble comes to breathe in the hand of 

the eminent master, 
Only — stone remained in the heart, but that is 

another story. 

Over the earth, and of the earth, sowing their 
seed, half-doubting, 
Side by side the parents passed until they be- 
held the wonder, 
Then, ah, then their hope fulfilled, they set up a 
joyous shouting, 
Raised a pean in praise of Him who governs 
the flaming thunder. 

And great Jove heard from his clouded height, 
heard and rejoiced, and straightway 
Spake a word to the council-gods, calling them 
in around him, 
Smiled as he saw the gods come in, in through 
the golden gateway, 
Smiled as he saw the earth at peace, smiling 
the council found him. 
Smiling he took his wonted seat and spake of the 
race of mortals, 
Men, and the golden age of men which came 
at the great beginning, 
Men, and the ultimate fall of men, when out 
through the iron portals 
Innocent Astraea took her way, sad at the va- 
rious sinning. 

Men who exhausted their heritage, wasted the 
substance lent them, 
Tore the veil with impious hands from things 
that were meant to be hidden, 
Men who mocked at the stronger gods, men, and 
the punishment sent them, 
Rains that fell, and seas that rose, and earth 
dishonoured and chidden. 

"And now ye see," the great god spake, "with a 
joyous eye for the seeing, 
Earth re-born, and the race renewed, an age 
that is fairer, fairer, 
Seas that smile, and winds that sleep, and a world 
giving thanks for being, 
Each his due, in the last reward an equal and 
dutiful sharer. 

Each his due, to know his due, with goodly 

crowns for the seeking, 
A race of men to live as men, and a worthy life 

for the living, 
Fitting now is the proffer of gifts" — the great 

god paused in his speaking, 

"I have given them life," quoth he, "and what 
will ye for the giving? 

"/ have given them life," quoth he, "yea, I have 

more to proffer, 
Life, and the RIGHT TO LIFE, and ye, what 

have ye to offer? 

(In answer to the question of the ruler of the 
gods the lesser deities stand forth, and enumerate 
their gifts to the new race. Minerva offers her 
usual wisdom, Venus, love, and so on. Finally 
Bacchus comes forward:) 

With the scent of flowers on the air, 

Sound of flutes, and the odor of wine, 
Vine leaves bound in his golden hair, 

Glad, bright leaves of the Ivy Vine. 

Eyes a-drowse with shadow and shine, 
And secret things that a great god knows; 

Lips empurpled, enriched, divine, 
Smile as warm as the heart of the rose. 

Tigers crouched at the fair god's feet, 

Crouched at his feet, and crouched around 
him — 
Nysaean Master, far more sweet 

Than proud Maeonian sailors found him. 

Blooming ropes of the wild grape bound him, 
Trailing loose in many places, 

Which those maidens who surround him 
Pressed to their breasts and flushed faces. 

Bacchus, son of the doubting maiden, 

God of youth, and joy, and revels, 
Leader of nymphs and fauns, fire-lad^n, 

Over the hills and the windy levels — 

Mad, mad glory that dishevels, 
Wild, white feet in the swaying grasses — 

Music mingled of men and devils, 
Fit for a god when a great god passes. 

(Bacchus then goes on to say that there are 
sad and serious things enough already given to 
the new race, and that his gift will be the Ivy 
Vine, signalizing eternal youth, joy, and happy 
memories, saying that the Vine is blessed by the 
gods, and made immortal by them:) 

Time and Change sweep on their courses, 

Ever fainter the wan west gleams, 
Phoebus guides his weary horses 

Further into the Fields of Dreams. 
What was the rose becomes the poppy, 

Old lips lose the songs they've sung, 
And old hearts sigh for days gone by, 

But the gods are always young.

According to tradition this ceremony follows 
the Ivy exercises. While the ivy is being planted 
the class will sing the Ivy Ode : 

(Air: Auld Lang Syne) 
A song of perfect, golden days 

To consecrate our vine, 
And aid our grateful hearts to praise 

Our Mother of the Pine. 
Grow green, grow strong, oh, Ivy vine, 

Then come whatever will, 
Thy tendrils curled around our hearts 
Shall hold us faithiui still. 

Fling loud the chorus to the breeze 

Through our familiar ways, 
Till Bowdoin's halls and campus trees 

Shall echo back our praise. 
Grow green, grow strong, oh, love of ours, 

Through shadow and through shine, 
And work and deed shall be thy meed, 

Our Mother -of the Pine. 

Kenneth A. Robinson.

out between the rows of underclassmen. The 
Seniors are excused from attendance at morning 
chapel during the rest of the year.

For eight long innings Dodge held Bates run- 
less while Bowdoin scored a single tally, but in 
the last half of the ninth, Bates scored twice 
and won the game. The contest was close at all 
periods and for a while the lone run that Bow- 
doin had looked big enough to win, but a three 
base hit, with an error and a freak of baseball, 
placed Bates in the lead. 

Bowdoin scored in the sixth. Stetson got on 
"by a clean single, went to second on McElwee's 
"bunt, to third when Weatherill hit to the infield, 
and scored on Tuttle's high foul over third. 

Then came the ninth. With two strikes and 
three balls called, Talbot drove a three base hit 
to centerfield. Shepard bunted toward third, 
Dodge threw over Eaton's head at first and Tal- 
"bot scored and Shepard took second. Lord sacri- 
ficed Shepard to third. Drake, batting for Cobb, 
kept up the bunting game, and rolled one down 
the third base line for an attempted squeeze play. 
Tilton got the ball before Shepard was half way 
home, but the throw hit the runner who easily

At the Sunday vespers President Hyde spoke 
on the coming anniversary of the Battle of Get- 
tysburg and the part which Gen. Chamberlain of 
the class of 1852 took in that battle. The follow- 
ing letter has been sent : 

1 June, 1913. 
General Joshua L. Chamberlain, LL.D., 

Portland, Maine. 
My dear General Chamberlain : — 

At this Memorial season, and in view of the 
approaching fiftieth anniversary of the Battle of 
Gettysburg, the students of Bowdoin College, as- 
sembled in the Chapel you left to obey your coun- 
try's call, and to which you returned after years 
of heroic and victorious service, by rising vote 
have requested me to express to you, and to the 
brave men who fought with you in the Great 
Cause, their gratitude for the privilege of living 
in a country undivided by secession and unstained 
by slavery: and to assure you that your noble ex- 
ample will ever be an incentive to lives of patri- 
otic service : in peace so long as honorable peace 
is possible; in war whenever unavoidable and 
righteous war shall call. 

Sincerely yours, 

William DeWitt Hyde. 


The Editors of the Orient: 

Permit me to correct two errors into which 
your correspondent, Mr. N. Bgoul, has fallen in 
the communication printed in your last issue. 
The purpose of the new bookcases in Hubbard 
Hall is simply to hold books. They have no 
acoustic properties and will restrain no echoes. 
The classes of books which they will display from 
time to time, and the reasons for making these 
books so prominent, will be fully set forth in a 
printed guide to the library to be issued later. It 
is hoped that these reasons when read and con- 
sidered, will justify the new arrangement. 

The cases themselves are of the same material 
and finish, and from the same manufacturer, as 
the card catalogue case at the end of the hall. 



Their lines, when complete, will be in strict ac- 
cord with the sketch made by Mr. Henry 
Vaughan for this purpose. It is hardly conceiv- 
able that so able an architect, in case of a build- 
ing designed by himself, would "distort beauty 
into ugliness." 

Geo. T. Little. 


The Dean will be unable to hold his office 
hours on June 12 and 13. 

All course cards are to be handed in at the of- 
fice by June 12. They should be made out with 
the full number of courses to be taken and may 
be changed only on written application to the 
Dean. A fine of one dollar will be collected for 
delay after June 12. 


At a recent meeting the Faculty selected the 
following men for English 9-10: — E. C. Gage '14, 
L. H. Gibson, Jr. '14, A. E. Gray '14, R. E. Simp- 
son '14, P. L. White '14, and R. P. Coffin '15. 

The following men from the Junior class were 
initiated into the Ibis last Monday evening : Al- 
fred E. Gray, Neal Tuttle, Horace A. Barton and 
Kenneth A. Robinson. 

The Friars, the Junior society, held their an- 
nual initiation Tuesday, May 27, at Riverton and 
took in six men from the Sophomore Class. The 
men are G. Arthur McWilliams, H. Alton Lewis, 
Edward R. Elwell, Joseph C. MacDonald, Austin 
H. MacCormick and Ellsworth A. Stone

matter of membership provisions. A new re- 
quirement is that membership shall be open at the 
first advertised meeting of the year and there- 
after it shall be by application and election by a 
majority of the members present. Richard Simp- 
son '14 was elected president for next year. Re- 
freshments were served.

Professor Woodruff, Professor Hutchins, Mr. 
Joseph S. Davis, and Mr. Henry B. Alvord. 


At a meeting of the Masque and Gown Friday, 
June 13, Leigh '14 was elected president for next 
year. Callahan '14 was elected manager and Hall 
'15 assistant manager. Elwell '15 was chosen 
member at large of the executive committee, 
which is composed of the officers, the coach and 
faculty adviser, with the member at large. Dr. 
Charles T. Burnett will take the place of Profes- 
sor Brown as faculty adviser next year as Pro- 
fessor Brown will be in Europe.

the picture Philip Sidney Smith '15 of Leicester, 
Mass., was elected captain of next year's team. 

In his two years at College, Smith has shown 
his ability as a track man in a variety of events. 
He was ineligible to represent Bowdoin last year, 
but captained his class team. This year he was a 
member of the relay team which ran at the B. 
A. A. games, he easily won the hundred and two- 
twenty in the dual meet with Trinity, took second 
in the broad jump in the State Meet, and took 
fourth in the broad jump at the New England 


The baseball men met last Friday night and 
elected Elroy O. LaCasce '14 of Skowhegan cap- 
tain of next year's baseball team. '"Casey" has 
been on the varsity nine for two years. Last year 
he was substitute catcher and played in the out- 
field while this year he has caught every game of 
the schedule. 


The Athletic Council met last Friday night 
and awarded the baseball "B" to the following 
men: Capt. Skolfield '13, Dodge '13, Tilton '13, 
Daniels '13, LaCasce '14, Weatherill '14, Tuttle

After the Ivy Day game, which closed the 
championship series and cinched the pennant for 
Bowdoin, the teams stood as follows : 

Won Lost Ave. 
Bowdoin 4 2 .667 

Colby 3 3 .500 

Maine 3 3 .500 

Bates 2 4 .333 


Timely hits coupled with Bates' errors easily 
won the Ivy game for Bowdoin, and with it the 
state championship. Bowdoin started scoring in 
the second inning and after that time the result 
was never in doubt. The day was ideal for base- 
ball and both teams played well. Bates pulled off 
a triple play in the eighth that nipped in the bud 
a Bowdoin batting rally, after Bowdoin had 
scored once in that inning. 

Three Seniors, Tilton, Dodge and Captain 
Skolfield, played their last game of baseball for 
Old Bowdoin, and the gilt-edged article of the 
game they offered was a worthy example for the 
remainder of the team to follow. All three 
played well in the field, Tilton handling six hard 
chances without a slip-up. At bat, Skolfield led 
with a single, a double and a triple in four times 
at bat. Dodge hit for three bases and Tilton for 
a single. 

Bowdoin had little difficulty in hitting Ander- 
son, who had proved so effective before, and Stin- 
son was kept warming up behind the Bates bench 
during the last half of the game. Dodge kept 
his six hits well scattered, only two of them com- 
ing in the same inning — the seventh, in which the 
visitors scored their lone tally. 

Bates started with a rush. Ridlon hit safely 
to left after two strikes were called, was sacri- 
ficed to second, took third on an infield out and 
then tried to steal home but was caught by a city 
block. In Bowdoin's half, McElwee got a life on 
Cobb's error after Stetson had fouled to Coady, 
stole second, but was caught off that bag when 

LaCasce hit to third. Tuttle went out, Coady to 

In the second Talbot died on a foul fly to La- 
Casce; Shepard singled to right field, and, after 
vainly asking for a runner on account of an in- 
jured leg, stole second, but he was left there. 

In the second Bowdoin scored her first two 
runs, enough to win the game, as it afterward 
turned out. Skolfield hit a three-bagger to deep 
left, far out by the running track and scored when 
Ridlon foozled Weatherill's grounder. Eaton 
dumped an infield single out of anybody's reach 
and Weatherill scored when Talbot dropped Til- 
ton's hard line drive. Anderson struck out Dodge 
and Stetson and McElwee flied out to short. 

Bowdoin scored twice more in the third. Rid- 
lon caught LaCasce's fly in short right by a fine 
jump. Tuttle hit to left, took second on Mar- 
ston's error and scored on Skolfield's two-bagger 
to right field. Skolfield took third on Weatherill's 
drive, and scored on Eaton's hit after Weatherill 
had been caught off first. Tilton singled, but 
Dodge struck out. 

Each side got a man on by a single in the fifth 
and in the sixth Bates got a man as far as sec- 
ond through Weatherill's error and a stolen base. 
In the same inning, with two down, Stetson drew 
a pass and stole, only to be left when McElwee 
grounded to second. 

The seventh saw Bates's only run. Shepard 
singled to left and took second on Lord's hit to 
the same place. Cobb sacrificed both men along 
a base and then Shepard scored on a passed ball. 
Marston struck out. Anderson drew a base on 
balls, but Ridlon fanned. 

Bowdoin filled the bases in the last half of the 
same inning but could not score. LaCasce went 
out, Anderson to Cobb, and Tuttle and Skolfield 
hit safely. Weatherill fanned and Eaton was 
passed, filling the bases. Tilton hit the first ball 
pitched to deep center field, but Talbot made a 
fine catch. 

In the eighth Talbot of Bates reached second 
on errors by Eaton and McElwee, but was left 
there when Shepard retired on a fly. It was in 
the last half of this inning that Bates's triple play 
prevented Bowdoin's running up a higher total. 
Dodge led off with a three-bagger to right cen- 
ter, and scored a minute later when Anderson 
uncorked a wild pitch. Stetson was given a base 
on balls and advanced a base on McElwee's 
ground single through the box. LaCasce hit to 
Anderson who turned and caught McElwee at 
second and a quick throw caught LaCasce at 
first. In the meantime Stetson had taken third, 
and now, as he tried to go home, Cobb threw to

A Vacation Reminder 

As the present college year draws to a close, 
the men in charge of the student body purse- 
strings are making plans for next fall. The first 
installment of the blanket tax will be due on the 
first three days of next semester. It is very prob- 
able that arrangements will be made for the op- 
tional payment of the whole year's tax in Sep- 
tember. Words and paper have been exhausted 
in pointing out the duty of every man in college 
to pay up on the first days instead of asking for 
an extension. The payments last February were 
not as satisfactory as might be expected under 
such a reasonable scheme. A duplication of as 
many applications for extensions next fall would 
probably make the whole system inoperative. 

There is, however, a more immediate reason 
for payment on the assigned days. There is a 
college requirement that no athletic team may 
represent the institution in an intercollegiate con- 
test until all the debts of the previous season are 
paid. The present football management will need 

eight hundred and fifty dollars to meet all credi- 
tors. The first home football game occurs three 
days after college opens — if the necessary amount 
is paid in by that date. It is very unlikely that 
the students of Bowdoin College will fail to meet 
the requirements of the situation. Don't forget 
to bring back your blanket tax next fall ! 

Initiation Date Postponed 

The Student Council recently voted that since 
seven of the eight fraternities have expressed 
themselves in favor of late initiations, they con- 
sidered the initiation date thereby postponed un- 
til after, the end of the first semester. A suitable 
date will be set by the new Council. In taking 
this action the Council gave due consideration to 
the opinion of the fraternity opposing the plan, 
but felt that it was unwise to allow a small minor- 
ity to render the scheme invalid for the majority. 
The fraternity opposing the scheme is, of course, 
not bound by this change and may initiate at any 

It is unfortunate that the new scheme is not to 
be inaugurated by unanimous action but it has 
been pointed out that it may be given a fair trial 
under the present conditions. There are no rules 
of rushing or pledging involved, nor is there any 
general scholarship requirement for initiation in- 

Wanted: A Bowdoin Union 

In the President's report in the new Bulletin 
we are attracted by a paragraph in the section 
dealing with the Christian Association from 
which we reprint an extract. 

"The obstacle in face of further development 
along this line (striving to amalgamate the va- 
rious social organizations in college, by "college 
sings," mass meetings, "Bowdoin nights," etc.) 
is the lack of a building, and there are many con- 
nected with the Association who hope that the 
time may come when there will be a Christian 
Association building and Bowdoin Union com- 
bined, on the campus : either a new building, or 
else the old Gymnasium made over into an at- 
tractive social and religious center for the Col- 
lege. While the fraternity life at Bowdoin is as 
near perfect as it can be, the whole social organi- 
zation of our college life is by small groups. Me- 
morial Hall was never intended for a social gath- 
ering place for the students, and its bigness and 
cheerlessness makes almost impossible any such 
gathering. The old Gymnasium might be adapt- 
ed, at no very great expense, into an efficient so- 
cial center for the College, managed, perhaps, 
under the general direction of the Christian As- 



sociation, and where there could be offices of the 
college papers and Glee Club, the Christian Asso- 
ciation meeting room, and a general college meet- 
ing place for class meetings, "sings," mass meet- 
ings, etc. The Association room has been used by 
the Music Department this year, and there are 
obstacles to the effective use of the Secretary 1 ! 
office in the Library, so that practically speaking, 
the Association has no adequate home at present. 
The Dean of the College, in his report for 191 1- 
12, called attention to the need of such a building, 
and there are many who hope that before long it 
may be seen upon the Bowdoin campus." 

This discussion of a Bowdoin Union has the 
advantage of a definite proposition as well as an 
adequate statement of need. It will no doubt be 
seconded by nearly every student in College and 
it is our hope that the report may not fall on bar- 
ren ground.

September 27. — New Hampshire State College 
at Brunswick. 

October 4. — Wesleyan at Middletown. 

October 11. — Trinity at Brunswick. 

October 18.- — U. of Vermont at Burlington, Vt. 

October 25. — Colby at Waterville. 

November 1. — Bates at Lewiston. 

November 8. — Maine at Brunswick. 

November 15. — Tufts at Portland. 

This revised schedule gives Bowdoin a com- 
plete list of college teams for the first time in a 
number of years. It also presents more home 
games with colleges out of the state than has ever 
occurred in football. There are three actual 
home games and two played within easy distance 
of Brunswick so that the followers of the team 
will be able to see at least five of the eight games. 
There are two long trips, one to Middletown and 
one to Burlington. The other game at Waterville 
is within easy distance of Brunswick. 

Early football practice will begin September 
15 and all candidates for the team are requested 
to be ready to report on Whittier Field at that

To the Editor, Bowdo'in College Orient. 

Dear Sir: — It is the opinion of the 1912-13 
■Student Council that a statement of the import- 
ant work done by the Council during the current 
year might with advantage be published in the 
Orient. The Council is accordingly sending you 
such a statement. 

1. Recommended that the student body show

President Hyde took as his subject, "Liberty in 
Speech and Act," and his text, "So speak ye and 
so do, as men that are to be judged by a law of 
liberty," James ii, 12. 

He said in part : 

"Men are of two kinds : Slaves and freemen. 
The slave in morals is publicly professor of tem- 
perance, chastity, honesty. At the club he speaks 
of their violation with such levity and relish as 
show his professed virtue to be a thin film of in- 
sincerity over a seething mass of sensuality. 

"The slave in business is driven by the lash of 
a desire to make money, regardless of how or out 
of whom it comes. The free business man aims 
to make the services and goods he offers a gen- 
uine benefit on fair terms to customers and con- 

"The slave in politics, on the stump and in his 
platform, professes devotion to the people and the 
public good; and then in the secrecy of the club- 
room and the greater secrecy of committee-room 
and lobby, says and does things which show that 
office-holding for himself and legislative favors 
at public expense for the supporters and contrib- 
utors to his party are the main things for which 
he really cares. The freeman in politics says the 
same thing to his constituents in public and to his 
associates and supporters in private, and does his 
utmost to enact and execute the policy professed. 

"Our present National Administration is giving 
the country the finest example of simple and sin- 
cere speech, supported by consistent and persist- 
ent action, that we have seen in any department 
of public service since the military campaigns of 
Gen. Grant. We have to thank the progressives 
of both parties for this sorely needed emancipa- 

"The root of this liberty which makes men sim- 



pie, single-minded and sincere is religion ; not the 
superficial religion of verbal profession, ritualis- 
tic form or sacerdotal, magic; but the religion 
that walks humbly with God ; measures words 
and deeds by the devoted character of Christ, and 
cultivates the spirit of service and good will."

class poem— e. o. baker 

I idly turned the pages of a book, 
And every while I looked away and through 
My window at the fresh new leaves upon 
The elms and at the sunshine as it flashed 
Along the grass. Half listlessly I watched 
The whole, until a figure' came in sight; 
Dark, tall, and solemnwise it looked, 
And walked with uneven step and from its mien 
I knew that it would speak, so tossing by my book, 
I ran with others to the place it stood 
And waited till it pleased to speak. 

"What have ye gained, 

These last four years? 
Come tell me, nor delay; 
For you must up 
And on your path 
Ere yet another day. 
The sun of youth 
Has thus far shown, 
Now it is past its heights- 
Give count and go 
Each one alone 
Through field or wood, or plain." 

Then did I hear a voice and could not tell, 

From whence it came, but it was sweet to hear. 

"Nay not alone do you go forth, 

But in a goodly band 

For with you go glad memories 

Throughout the untried land. 

As for the gain — that you must count, 

Oh wait till the time be ripe, 

You are but ready, to go the way, 

The time of the gain is not yet." 

Let us be gone upon the mighty way, 

And into the heart of the world that waits 

Expectantly. And gladly let us go 

While yet the song our mighty Mother sings 

Re-echoes in our ears. Oh, there is much 

To do : old creeds to break, new faiths to build, 

Come forth ! and give a hand for in thy gift 

Shalt thou regain an hundred fold thy gift. 

Let us on nor brook delay. 



"As we leave these halls, we go forth into a 
busy and a complex world. Insistent will be the 
demands upon sinew and strength, pocketbook 
and personality. There will be the call of caring 
for those who are dear, and in this we cannot fail. 
We must do a day's work for a day's pay, whether 
it will be in courtroom, office, or factory. We will 
probably be members of some church, and follow 
some political faith. All these duties are funda- 
mental and must be performed efficiently and con- 
scientiously if there is to be any real strength in 
our existence. 

"But there is a deeper call, a greater respon- 
sibility that falls upon us as college men. We 
must remember that truth of which we so glibly 
speak, yet so seldom feel : the Brotherhood of 
Man. To regard the bootblack or low-browed 
mechanic as your friend, to sympathize with shop- 
girl and factory worker, is a quality of heart that 
we must have in order to live the larger life. 






Humanity must speak to us with poignant voice in 
the street or from the stage, and we must be will- 
ing to give that most precious of all gifts — our- 

"Expressed in harsh money terms, we leave this 
college indebted to society over a thousand dol- 
lars for the training given us, and there is the 
inestimable debt for the privilege of association 
with noble professors who are giving their very 
lives for the youth of the land. The college 
years have been given to us as a stewardship, and 
the lines have fallen in pleasant places. We can- 
not repay in money, but what is asked of us is 
that we help someone else, that is the true tribute 
that we can lay at the feet of our beloved. 

"It matters little what line of work we follow. 
This world is so big and its needs so extensive 
that there is room and to spare for publicist and 
painter, lawyer and laborer. The tools of life 
are before us ; let us use them, not primarily for 
ourselves, but with a heart filled with love for 
man, keep true the end in mind, and labor for the 
common cause. 

"Some of you may say, 'these are merely plati- 
tudes." The age that considers these sentiments 
to be threadworn is an age from which all altru- 
ism has fled. It is a duty as old as the eternal 
hills yet as new as the green grass with- which 
spring has arrayed our Mother Earth. 

"The portcullis falls upon our college days. 
Other men will give their best on Whittier Field 
for the glory of old Bowdoin. Our achievements 
in debating and in scholarship will be soon for- 
gotten ; our chapters will know us only as names ; 
even the maidens who are with us today will re- 

cover from the pain caused by parting and in a 
few months the music of house party or hop will 
find them smiling up into the faces of other 
youths. It may be a bitter cup to quaff, but it is a 
necessary one. 

"Our faces should be towards the future, not 
the past. It is time to do a man's work in a man's 
world, and we are ready. God grant that we may 
see our duty and have strength enough to perform 
it. It is with a deep love for Bowdoin that we 
leave her gates ; it is with a firm resolve to serve 
that we enter life. We are the modern knights, 
riding forth from castle walls to redress human 

" 'On through the dawning humanity calls ; 

Life's not a dream in the clover; 

On to the walls, on to the walls, 

On to the walls, and over.' " 



"Since our first arrival on the campus we have 
been learning our great lesson — sincerity from 
the lives of Bowdoin's great alumni, from the 
example of the noble men of Bowdoin's faculty, 
and from the atmosphere of the campus itself. 

"Under such influences have we as undergrad- 
uates been trained to love sincerity. Today, the 
first requisite of any Bowdoin man is that he be 
himself and speak himself. On the athletic field 
he strives to win for the College, but still remem- 
bers that he is playing a game and that he is a 
Bowdoin gentleman. In the activities of our com- 
plex life, he works for higher places and better 
accomplishments, but forgets not that he is mere- 





ly one of our three hundred. In his studies, 
though he wish for honors and prizes, he truly 
thinks of them as but adornments to the real 
structure of true culture. In his. relations with 
the College and with his fellows, seeking only to 
judge each at his true worth, he lives sincerely 
democratic in his broad friendships, sincerely ex- 
clusive in his confidants, and always sincerely 



"It is now nearly four years since, one bright 
September afternoon in 1909 a rather stocky, 
rusty looking lad was seen tagging three suit 
cases and a handbag up over the hill from the 
station. His inquiry if that was the way to the 
campus received the answer, 'Yes, who are you?' 
Lifting his head the newcomer answered, 'I am 
Phil Wood, and I come from Baw Hawbow.' 
Thus was the arrival of 1913 first announced. 

"Sophomore year the opening of College found 
us all back on time. It was that year that the last 
regular razoo was given by the Sophomore Class 
to Freshmen, not restrained and directed by the 
Student Council. Of course none of us can for- 
get that wonderful New Gym rally, which took 
place that winter, and which resulted in the won- 
derful building which we dedicate tomorrow. 

"The opening of Junior year found us at last 
upon our proper dignity, and above the petty 
struggles of class rivalry. As upper classmen we 
could fittingly give fatherly advice to the two 
lower classes, and, seeing their weaknesses and 
follies, bemoan the "good old days" when we 

were Freshmen. Two great events stand out 
above all others in Junior year. One was the first 
Junior field day ever held, the other was Ivy, 
which was acknowledged by all who were present 
as the most successful Junior Week ever cele- 

"And so before we could realize it, we were 
back again last fall, Seniors. This last year has 
passed all too quickly. It has been so full of im- 
portant events that only a few can be even men- 
tioned. Of course 1913 points with pride to the 
fact that, under the direction of this year's Stu- 
dent Council, chosen by men of our class, the 
blanket tax was so successfully inaugurated last 
fall. We believe it a pardonable pride that we 
point to ourselves as the first class to adopt the 
Senior canes. 

"So also were we pleased when Major Slocum 
on his way over to the Interclass Meet gathered 
in the first 12 Seniors he met on the campus and, 
taking them along with him, won the interclass 
drill, despite the long practice the other class 
squads had gone through. And a second event 
which pleased us was when every member of the 
class answered the call to arms, and gathering in 
Memorial Hall before competent judges sang the 
songs of our College as they had never before 
been sung and, as a result, won the Snow Song 

"But amidst all these victories and festive oc- 
casions, the class, as well as the rest of the entire 
College, received a shock like lightning when our 
beloved professor, Henry L. Chapman, passed on 
to another world on February 24. 

"Thus, classmates and friends, we have come 



to our Commencement time, having gone through 
four of the best years of our life together. Hav- 
ing started with 93 members, we now number 76. 
In our midst we find a varied crew, all types be- 
ing represented. Among our number can be 
found one Rhodes scholar, several journalists, 
three politicians, two atheists, and one anarchist. 
Within our ranks we find that we have 14 men 
who have represented the College on the dra- 
matic clubs, 13 men who have been on the musi- 
cal clubs, five men who have been on the varsity 
debating teams, two men of the varsity tennis, 
five men who have won the coveted baseball B, 
six who have upheld Bowdoin's honor on the 
track, and last but not least, ten men who while 
belonging to this class, seven of whom are still 
with us today, have won their letters on the grid- 

Thus have we spent our years in College. Our 
studies have played a most important part, other- 
wise we would not be here this afternoon. And 
the path has not been entirely strewn with roses, 
we have had to take the bitter with the sweet. 
Soon we pass out into the larger world, never 
again to be carefree boys. But we will never for- 
get the friendships we have formed here, or 
cease to love and cherish our dear Alma Mater. 


"Fellow Classmates : 

"Four years ago we came here with the com- 
mon purpose to acquire knowledge. We came as 
individuals and as strangers, and now we are 
about to leave again as individuals, but not as 
strangers. For during our four years here, by 
our struggles on the athletic field, by our friend- 
ly rivalry in the class room, by the hours of pleas- 
ure and relaxation, we have been welded together. 
Loyalty to College and Class has been a notable 
characteristic of the members of 1913. There 
have been no dissentions among us. The unity of 
brotherhood pervades our ranks. 

"It is but natural that, at the thought of leav- 
ing our dear Alma Mater and our devoted friends, 
the feeling of sadness should be uppermost in 
our minds. But' mingled with our sorrow, is a 
feeling of hope for the future and eagerness to 
tackle what it has in store for us. This is not the 
end but the beginning of our journey, for which 
these years have been a preparation. We go with 
enthusiasm to meet our new tasks. Up to now we 
have been mere lookers-on at the game of life. 
We have sat back in the grandstand and watched 
while others played the game. It is now time to 
become players in the game, to do a man's work 
in the world. 

"In preparation for the struggle we have re- 
ceived that great gift of the Bowdoin spirit. It 
has been the impelling force in our undergraduate 
life, to give to each of our tasks the best there is 
in us. It is this Bowdoin spirit, the giving of the 
best, which in the past has inspired her soldiers 
to deeds of heroism and valor, her explorers to 
fight on against insurmountable obstacles, her 
statesmen and lawyers to fight for the cause of 
justice and good government against all the in- 
siduous forces of bribery and corruption, her 
poets and authors to wield their pens for the up- 
lifting of mankind, and her doctors and ministers 
to give up their lives gladly for the sake of hu- 
manity. This spirit is the great gift of Bowdoin 
to her sons. To give anything less than our best 
is to be false to our friends, to our Alma Mater, 
.to our Creator. Let us ever keep it alive in our 
hearts. May it ever be our guide in times of 
stress and strain, and also in the calmer moments 
of life. So that at the final parting the world 
may say : 'He gave his best, more than that can- 
not be given.' 


The Commencement Hop was held in the New 
Gymnasium at 9.00 p. m. The hall was very taste- 
fully decorated for the occasion. Green and 
white serpentine confetti was suspended from all 
sides of the auditorium to the center, making 
nearly a complete ceiling of color. Around the 
lights were tastefully arranged Japanese lanterns, 
while various other effects were introduced. The 
dance orders were very effective. The covers 
were of metal, gold plated and decorated very 
simply with the Bowdoin Seal. The order con- 
sisted of 26 dances and music was furnished by 
Chandler's orchestra of twenty pieces. 

The patronesses were: Mrs. Frank E. Wood- 
ruff, Mrs. William A. Moody, Mrs. Charles C. 
Hutchins, Mrs. Frank N. Whittier, Mrs. Wilmot 
B. Mitchell, Mrs. Roscoe J. Ham, Mrs. Paul 
Nixon and Mrs. William H. Davis, all of Bruns- 
wick, and Mrs. George C. Riggs and Miss Nora 
Smith of Hollis. 

The committee in charge was as follows : Leon 
Everett Jones, chairman, Paul Chapman Savage, 
George Lincoln Skolfield, Theodore Evans Em- 
ery and Sumner Tucker Pike. 

For the first time in several years the Varsity 
baseball team met an alumni team in a game dur- 
ing Commencement week. The undergraduate 
team was the State champions' line-up with the 
exception of the shortstop position. Daniels filled 


this position. The final score was 12 to 6. Seven 
innings were played. To the surprise of the fans, 
both Means and Woodcock proved easy for the 
Varsity batsmen and were replaced by Hobbs and 
Files, who did better work. The fielding was

In addition to five members of the class of 1913 
and four members of the class of 1914, Dr. Fred 
P. Webster of the class of 1910 was initiated into 
the fraternity. 


The dedication exercises were held in the main 
exercising room of the Gymnasium, the speakers 
delivering their addresses from the trophy room. 
President Hyde first introduced Franklin Conant 
Payson of Portland who spoke on behalf of the 
Building Committee. He paid tribute to Dr. 
Whittier, Dudley A. Sargnet, John S. Hyde, 
President Hyde and others. 

Mr. Charles Collens, of the firm of Allen & 
Collens, architects for the Gymnasium, was the 
next speaker. He took for his subject "Architec- 
tural Reminiscences'' and traced in a most pleas- 
ing manner, the troubles of an architect in form- 
ing the plans of such a building and especially 
the problems which this particular building pre- 

Hon. John Sedgwick Hyde followed with a 
brief appropriate speech on the spirit of the gift 
and physical training. 

Mr. Edward Stanwood '61 was taken sick and 
was unable to deliver his address on General 
Thomas W. Hyde, but his paper was read by Hon. 
Lucilius Alonzo Emery of Ellsworth. Mr. Stan- 
wood was a classmate of Gen. Hyde's and his 
paper was enlivened with many personal anec- 

Dudley A. Sargent '87 next spoke on "A Brief 
Review of Physical Education in America." 

The last speaker of the afternoon was Dr. 
Whittier. He outlined the course of physical 
training as pursued in the big athletic plant and 
concluded as follows : 

"At the end of senior year you go out into the 



world, possessed of sound scholarship and fine 
physique, carrying loyalty to the old College and 
cherishing memories of physical training, typified 
by the emblem of the White Banner and the mas- 
cot of Polar Bear. The banner stands for the 
new era of fairness and gentlemanly conduct in 
college sport; the polar bear stands for the last 
word in the expression of Bowdoin spirit, of rug- 
ged resistance, when necessary, to the forces of 
man and nature. 

"May these buildings do their part in main- 
taining that Bowdoin spirit which enabled Ad- 
miral Peary to achieve the Pole and General 
Chamberlain to hurl back the rebel charges at 
Little Round Top and save the day at Gettys- 

Doctor Whittier's address concluded the exer- 
cises that marked the formal dedication. Many 
of the graduates took this opportunity of inspect- 
ing the building for which they had subscribed, 
but which they had not heretofore had the privi- 
lege of seeing. 

As a fitting symbol of the dedication, the new 
trophy cases, to hold cups, souvenir footballs and 
baseballs of contests won by Bowdoin, together 
with other trophies, have just been placed in po- 
sition, supplanting the old and small sized cases. 
A large polar bear skin, the gift of Joseph E. 
Moore, Esq., '65, of Thomaston, symbolic of the 
Bowdoin polar bear, had been placed in the trophy 
room, expressing at once the success that one of 
Bowdoin's sons has met in the far north, and the 
past and present successes that Bowdoin herself 
has met on the field, together with future victo- 
ries for which to work.. 


The Masque and Gown gave the Merchant of 
Venice on the steps of the Walker Art Building 
at 4.3: Wednesday afternoon. This year's pro- 
duction was the most ambitious and successful 
performance the players have yet achieved. The 
play was coached and directed by Mrs. Arthur F. 
Brown of Brunswick, who has had charge of the 
Bowdoin productions for the past two years. 
Much of the artistic and dramatic excellence of 
the presentation was due to her efforts. 

The cast was as follows: 

Shylock, a Jew Cedric R. Crowell '13 

Duke of Venice Leon E. Jones '13 

Antonio, a merchant of Venice 

Paul H. Douglas '13 
Bassanio, a suitor to Portia Edward O. Baker '13 

Salanio, his friend Robert D. Leigh '14 

Salarino, his friend Francis X. Callahan '14 

Gratiano, his friend Chester G. Abbott '14 

Lorenzo, his friend Clifton O. Page '13 

Launcelot Gobbo Winthrop S. Greene '13 

Old Gobbo, his father Stewart P. Morrill '16 

Balthazar, servant to Portia. . . Alden F. Head '16 

Stephano Walter F. Eberhardt '13 

Clerk of the Court Don J. Edwards '16 

Portia, a rich heiress. . . W. Fletcher Twombly '13 
Nerissa, her waiting maid 

William T. Livingston '15 

Cedric Crowell, President of the Club, who has 
previously in college played many leading roles 
successfully, scored a distinct triumph in the 
leading part of Shylock. His interpretation of 
the part was similar to that of Otis Skinner and 
he portrayed the Jew as justifiable in his desire 
for revenge. He rose superbly to the demands of 
the trial scene and throughout the play did a fine 
piece of acting. Baker as Bassanio, Twombly as 
Portia, and Douglas as Antonio, did excellent 
work. The cast was well rounded and the minor 
parts adequate. 

The total effect of the production was that of 
artistic dignity and reserve rather than intense 
dramatic action. This manner of presentation is 
to some degree an influence from the Sothern- 
Marlowe production, but with the open air scen- 
ery and broad stage there were some excellent 
departures from the usual effects in professional 
productions, such as the end of the first act. The 
exigencies of time and the outdoor stage made 
necessary a number of alterations in the arrange- 
ment and sequence of scenes. 


The President's Reception was held from 8.00 
to 11.00 in the Alumni Room, Hubbard Hall, 
Wednesday evening. In the receiving line were 
President and Mrs. William DeWitt Hyde, Pro- 
fessor and Mrs. William A. Moody, and Profes- 
sor and Mrs. Wilmot B. Mitchell. The ushers 
were the following Brunswick boys: Noel Little, 
Robert Little, Philip Weatherill, Darwin Tuttle 
and Robert Stetson. 


The Commencement exercises of the Medical 
School of Maine were held in the Congregational 
Church at 9.30 Wednesday morning. President 
Hyde conducted the program. The address to 
the graduates was made by Hon. Albert R. Sav- 
age of Auburn, chief justice of the Maine Su- 
preme Court. His subject was "Some Sore 
Points in Our Political System." The following- 
men received the M.D. degree : Harold Carleton 
Arey, Wyvern Almoh Coombs, Carlisle Royal 
Gould. Ridgely Fernald Hanscom, Elmer Henry 


King, Leon Stanley Lippincott, Harold Daniel 
McNeil, Albert Willis Moulton, Edward Russell 
Roberts, Harold Danforth Ross, Philip Sheridan 
Sullivan, Winfield Benjamin Trickey and Francis 
David Walker.

The last event of the Commencement week was 
the Commencement Dinner held in the Thomas 
Worcester Hyde Athletic Building after the com- 
mencement exercises. President Hyde presided 
and began the post prandial exercises by unveil- 
ing a portrait of the late Professor Chapman 
which a group of his friends has presented to the 
College. The painting is by Joseph B. Cahill of 
Portland. President Hyde announced the estab- 
lishment of the Chapman Professorship. 

The Snow Reunion cup, awarded annually to 
the class obtaining the largest percentage of at- 
tendance, was won by the Class of 1888, with an 
attendance of 19 out of 23 members. The Presi- 
dent also announced the outcome of the Friar Cup 

Reviewing the contributions for the year, he 
made the pleasing announcement that the contri- 
butions which usually average $75,000 annually 
were this year $145,000, nearly double the aver- 

Among the speakers were Governor William

Dean Walz of the University of Maine, Rev. 
Theodore Busfield of No. Adams, Mass., Profes-

The College Year 

The year just ended has been one of distinct 
success in many lines. In nearly every branch of 
undergraduate activity there has been a spirit of 
healthy cooperation and desire for improvement. 
In athletics, while Bowdoin has annexed but a 
single championship, the basis of excellent teams 
for next year is to be found among the under- 
graduates left in College. In debating and ora- 
tory a very creditable showing was made, worthy 
of Bowdoin's past and present. In dramatics 
there has been a distinct advance. The two pro- 
ductions of the Masque and Gown were a great 
credit to the College. The club itself was reor- 
ganized with a view to making it a more active 
and definite organization. The Musical Clubs 
had a very successful season and for the first 
time a concert in New York City. The De- 
partmental Clubs are in a flourishing condition. 
The Government Club had an unusually large 
membership. In the general administration of 

student affairs by the Student Council and the 
Board of Managers there has been an unusual 
amount of ability displayed. The Blanket Tax is 
safely on its feet and a number of salutary 
changes in student life have been accomplished. 
For the College as a whole this year has seen the 
completion of the New Gymnasium and Thomas 
Worcester Hyde Athletic Building. This addi- 
tion to our campus equipment bids fair to open a 
new era in Bowdoin Athletics and physical train- 
ing and, incidentally, provides an excellent hall 
for class and college dances. The death of Pro- 
fessor Chapman has been a deep loss to everyone 
connected with the College and community. His 
memory is to be perpetuated in a very appropriate 
manner and extended to those in future years 
who have not felt the indelible impression of his 
personality and character. Between faculty and 
students, both in and out of the classroom, there 
have been very harmonious and helpful relations. 
It has been a good year for Bowdoin. It has been 
a year full of hopes and one which leads us to 
look forward to a better, brighter future. 


The result of the competition for the Friar Cup 
for the best average scholarship standing among 
the various fraternities was announced Thursday. 
Delta Upsilon was the winner for the sixth con- 
secutive time. The percentages are as follows : 

Delta Upsilon 15-970 

Kappa Sigma 13.789 

Delta Kappa Epsilon 13.666 

Alpha Delta Phi 13.634 

Beta Theta Pi 13.300 

Theta Delta Chi 13.000 

Zeta Psi 12.910 

Non-Fraternity 12.870 

Psi Upsilon 12.560 

Manager Koughan of the Track Team an- 
nounces that an interested alumnus has offered 
a cup worth $35.00 to be given next fall to the 
winners of an interclass cross-country race in 
which all four classes will take part. There has 
been arranged a dual cross-country race with 
Massachusetts Institute of Technology to be held 
in the fall. These two contests make imperative 
the need for a large sized cross-country squad at 
the beginning of college in September. 

With regret the Committee announce that the 
second trial has ended like the first with no award 
of the prize. The competitors were only four in 

9 2 


number, and the character of the songs was the 
same as in the first trial. A much more general 
participation in this contest is desired, and it is 
hoped that the vacation season will bring leisure 
and inspiration for further efforts, and that some 
song may yet come to birth which will be worthy 
to live on the lips of undergraduates and alumni 
and will be accepted by them as a fit expression 
of Bowdoin spirit and ideals. Because this hope 
is still cherished the contest will be continued un- 
til November first. All songs offered in compe- 
tition should be in the hands of Mr. Edward H. 
Wass on or before that date. May some fortu- 
nate hand reach high enough to grasp the prize.

The Hon. Harry Clifton Fabyan '93 of Boston 
was marshal of the Commencement procession. 

The pipe used by the Seniors in the Pipe of 
Peace ceremony was unique. It was a beauti- 
fully carved production of black meerschaum and 
amber. On each side of the bowl, in raised fig- 
ures were the numerals 1913, the 19 being on one 
side and the 13 on the other. On the front of the 
bowl was a B, also raised. The stem is of cloudy 
amber and on it about six inches from the bowl 
is carved the Bowdoin Seal. This pipe is the gift 
of a man much interested in the class and will be 
kept as a Class Pipe. 


As members of the Class of 1903, we wish to 
give public expression to the deep feeling of love 
and veneration with which we regard the mem- 
ory of Henry Leland Chapman, and our sense of 
personal and individual loss in his death. More 
and more do we realize how gently he led us to 
an appreciation of all that is true and noble in 
literature, and through the sweet power of his 
personality illustrated for us the higher and 
nobler qualities in life. At this time when we are 
deprived of his sympathetic understanding, but 
when the assembled alumni are accustomed to ex- 
perience the inspiration of his presence, we be- 
lieve no higher tribute can be paid to the influence 
of his life than is expressed by the ode of his 

beloved Longfellow at the grave of another of 
Bowdoin's teachers, an ode hallowed in memory 
for us by the voice of our teacher and friend: 
"Among the many lives that I have known, 
None I remember more serene and sweet, 
More rounded in itself and more complete, 
Than his, who lies beneath this funeral stone. 
These pines, that murmur in low monotone, 
These walks frequented by scholastic feet, 
Were all his world ; but in this calm retreat 
For him the teacher's chair became a throne. 
With fond affection memory loves to dwell 
On the old days, when his example made 
A pastime of the toil of tongue and pen; 
And now, amid the groves he loved so well 

That naught could lure him from their grate- 
ful shade, 
He sleeps, but wakes elsewhere, for God hath 
said, Amen !"

NO. 12 


Only twice did New Hampshire State College 
threaten the Bowdoin goal in the first game of 
the season for both teams on Whittier Field Sat- 
urday. Bowdoin scored two touchdowns and a 
goal from the field, which, with the two goals 
from touchdowns, made the score lj to o. New 
Hampshire tried forward passes with great suc- 
cess and uncovered a number of formations that 
netted considerable gains, but Bowdoin did not 
uncork a forward pass or trick play of any kind. 
Bowdoin kicked to New Hampshire and a se- 
ries of clever end runs aided by a long forward 
pass carried the ball to the shadow of Bowdoin's 
goal. Weatherill caught New Hampshire's punt 
on his own five-yard line and the danger was 
turned off. 

New Hampshire's best effort came just before 

the close of the first half when Quarterback 
Brackett sent his men around the ends and 
through the line for gain after gain until the 20- 
yard line was reached. Here progress was 
slower, but steady work brought the ball to the 
four-yard line and first down. New Hampshire 
made one on the next down and time was up for 
the half. 

In the second quarter, after Weatherill and 
Foster had made eight yards, Lew Brown skirted 
his own right end for a touchdown. Mountfort 
kicked the goal. 

Bowdoin's second touchdown came in the third 
quarter. Bowdoin carried the ball within ten 
yards of New Hampshire's goal, but the New 
Hampshire line tightened and held, Bowdoin los- 
ing the ball on downs. After three unsuccessful 
attempts at bucking the line, New Hampshire 
punted, but Brewster blocked the kick and Beal 
fell on the ball back of the line. LaCasce kicked 
the goal. 

With only a minute left to play in the last pe- 
riod, Bowdoin had the ball on New Hampshire's 
30-yard line. Coach McCann sent Floyd in to re- 
place LaCasce. Two line plays netted eight yards 
and Floyd drew back for a drop kick, just sending 
the ball over the bar. Time was up immediately 
after the kick. 

Captain Bob Weatherill played a good game 
for Bowdoin, always furnishing his distance 
when called upon. Foster gained ground con- 
sistently, and LaCasce, although he was not 
called upon as often on account of an injured leg, 
was good for substantial ground. Leadbetter was 
shifted from tackle to end during three periods of 
the game, playing his old position of tackle dur- 
ing the third quarter. 

New Hampshire punted but twice during the 
game, attempting a forward pass once in the mid- 
dle of the field on a fourth down, but a poor 
throw gave Bowdoin the ball. Bowdoin was not 
forced to punt once.

The Y. M. C. A. held its annual reception for 
the entering class Thursday evening in Hubbard 
Hall. The Bowdoin handbooks, or "Freshman 
Bibles," were given to those present. The books 
this year have many improvements in make-up 
and contents which reflect great credit on the 
editor, Arthur S. Merrill '14. The program of 
the evening was as follows : 

The Chairman C. A. Brown '14 

The College Pres. W. D. Hyde 

The Churches -.Rev. E. D. Johnson 

The Alumni J. C. Minot '96 

Athletics. ...:..:. : : J. Magee 

Football Coach McCann 

Associated Students R. D. Leigh '14 

The Y. M. C. A Mr. J. L. McConaughy 

After the speeches there were cheers and the 
singing of Bowdoin songs while refreshments of 
ice-cream, cakes and punch were being served. 


The Blanket Tax this year proved itself a de- 
cided success when practically every man in col- 
lege either paid or asked for an extension of time. 
The collection was made by the Board of Man- 
agers on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and the 
sum of $2267.50 was collected. Two hundred 
eighty-eight men paid the tax for the first semes- 
ter, nine men for the whole year, and fifty men 
applied for extension. The results are very grati- 
fying to those who have worked for the success 
of the Blanket Tax, for the actions of the studen 
body seem to assure the future success of the tax 
and the activities which it supports. The appro- 
priations for the various activities are given in 
another column. 


Bowdoin meets Wesleyan at Middletown Satur- 
day. Plenty of hard work this week will doubt- 
less be the lot of the candidates and by Saturday 
afternoon, a well-groomed eleven should attempt 
to retrieve the seven to six defeat of last fall. 

No injuries were suffered from last Saturday's 
game, and although no statement has been given 
out thus early in the game, it is thought that the 
lineup will be practically the same as that of last 
Saturday. "King" Pratt and "Brosie" Burns, 
both veterans, did not get into the New Hamp- 
shire game, but it is probable that both will be 
used against Wesleyan. Burns, who returns to 
college after a year's absence, plays guard, and 
Pratt plays the same position. Brewster and 
Moulton, who played guards Saturday, presented 
a strong defense, and opened up wide holes for 
the Bowdoin backs. 

Lew Brown is able to fill "Chuck" Crosby's 
shoes at quarter in a manner pleasing to the most 
ardent Bowdoin man. For the backfield, it is 
hard to make a distinction between the men who 
played Saturday. The loss of Harry Faulkner is 
felt severely. 

Following the game with Wesleyan, Bowdoin 
plays Trinity at Brunswick, the game having been 
transferred here from Portland. Hudson, the 
giant fullback, whom Bowdoin men will remem- 
ber as a star in the dual meet last spring, is cap- 
tain of the Trinity team. 


. "The Isaiah of Michael Angelo," which we saw 
being painted last spring by Miss Edna Merritt, 
is at last placed on one of the vacant panels in the 
Chapel. It is the gift of Dr. Frederick H. Ger- 
rish of Portland in memory of the late Professor 
Henry Leland Chapman.

Campus Optimism 

The opening of the college year with its hand- 
shakes and "had a good summer?" effusive wel- 
coming and sheltering of freshmen is always a 
pleasant and enthusiastic period of the year, but 
the few first days just passed have seemed to be of 
a nature which augurs well for the coming months. 
There has seemed to be existent in the spirit of 
the campus an optimism and contagious enthus- 
iasm which before has been not so evident. The 
excellent turnout for football, the systematic and 
evidently successful manner in which the two 
midgets, Coach MCann and Trainer Magee, have 
conducted the practice, the inspiration to the 
squad given by Capt. Weatherill, always the hard- 
est working man on the field, have all contributed 
to cause this. The large entering class and im- 
provements to the buildings have had their share 
in producing this atmosphere. So far so good. 
Let the good work go on. Sooner or later will 
come the moments of discouragement when the 
tendency will be strong to criticise and quit. As 

a student body upholding the traditions of a grand 
old college we must so fortify ourselves with good 
fellowship, sympathy and loyalty that when the 
temptations come, the hammer will be found 
buried and we will stay true to our trust as Bow- 
doin undergraduates. 

John Magee, Trainer 

It was a great pleasure to the student body to 
welcome, on their return to college, the new ath- 
letic trainer, John Magee. From the manner in 
which the football team has been whipped into 
physical condition early in the season and the 
way in which the cross-country squad has been 
handled it is safe to predict that he is just the 
man the student body has so long expressed a de- 
sire to have with us and the athletic council 
should be thanked for their choice. It seems to 
the Orient that such a step as the official recog- 
nition of athletics and the partial payment for the 
services of a man to keep our athletes in good 
physical condition is a wise move. It brings back 
the emphasis to the development of the individual 
physically and has a tendency to bring out more 
prominently, athletics for the good it does one 
than for the sake of victory. Mr. Magee believes 
thoroughly in athletic training for its own sake 
and for every man in college. He fits into our 
system very nicely and with him and our now al- 
most perfect athletic equipment we look to our 
future in this branch of student activity with 
high hopes. 

This evening at a quarter of eight a meeting 
for Freshmen will be held in the Debating Room, 
Hubbard Hall. The purpose of this meeting is to 
explain the various undergraduate activities and 
how the first year man may get into them. The 
program will be as follows : 

A. S. B. C Leigh '14 

Athletics McWilliams '15 

Track Smith '15 

Dramatics Callahan '14 

Musical Organizations Thompson '14 

Publications MacCormick '15 

Debating Simpson '14 

Y. M. C. A C. Brown '14 

Fraternities Gray '14 

Leigh '14 will preside over the meeting. 


On next Thursday evening at 7.30 the Y. M. 
C. A. will begin its Bible study work with a meet- 
ing in their room in King Chapel. The speaker 
of the evening will be Rev. Ar,tley B. Parson of 



the Cathedral Church of St. Paul, Boston. He 
will take as his subject "The Influence of the 
Bible on Modern Life." Mr. Parson is a Har- 
vard '03 man. He studied at the University of 
Michigan and George Washington University and 
at Union Seminary. As Secretary of the Inter- 
national Y. M. C. A. Committee he visited the 
Maine colleges in 1905 and came again in 1910 
with Mr. Mercer. 

The courses this year will be a course for up- 
perclassmen on "The Manhood of the Master" 
and one for Freshmen on "The Freshman's 
Problems." The classes will be held every Sun- 
day under student leaders. 


A very interesting pamphlet has been issued by 
the college as one of the Bowdoin bulletins. It 
is a complete record of the exercises at the dedi- 
cation of the Gymnasium and the General 
Thomas Worcester Hyde Athletic Building, last 
June. It contains the speeches of Mr. Payson, 
Charles Collens, John S. Hyde, President Hyde, 
Edward Stanwood, Dr. Sargent and Dr. Whit- 
tier, all of which will be remembered as eloquent 
and inspiring. The booklet is well illustrated 
with half tones of the speakers and photographs 
of the new athletic plant. 

C&e iLi&rarp Cable 

There has been recently issued by D. C. Heath 
and Son a neat little addition to the collection of 
books of the "Elder Brother" type, giving advice 
to students entering college. This particular 
volume was compiled by Francis Cummins Lock- 
wood, Professor of English Literature at Alle- 
gheny College and contains articles from the pen 
of President Hyde, President David Starr Jor- 
don, President Eliot, President Meiklejohn, and 
President Hibben, as well as reprints of such 
standard didactic articles as "The Description of 
a Gentleman" by Cardinal Newman. There are 
two articles by President Hyde. One is entitled 
An Address to Freshmen and deals with the prob- 
lems of choice and attitudes that the entering 
classmen have to decide. The other is entitled A 
Poisonous Phrase and was delivered by him at 
Sunday chapel service last winter at Bowdoin. 
From cover to cover the book is filled with practi- 
cal suggestions to all undergraduates both seniors 
and freshmen and leads also to considerations of 
a deep moral and ethical nature. Aside from the 
two selections by President Hyde which are very 
applicable to conditions here there is a short ar- 
ticle by President Jordan entitled The After Self 
which every young man should read if he has not 

yet done so, or heard Dr. Jordan deliver the 
thought in the form of a speech. This volume 
should serve as valuable "outside reading" book 
to supplement the Y.M.C.A. Handbook in the in- 
evitable Freshman course of getting accustomed 
to the new environment. _-« 

4Uu& and Council Speettnffg 

The Athletic Council met last Friday, Sept. 
26th, and several important matters were dis- 
cussed. With the approval of the Faculty, 
three games of baseball, instead of two, will be 
played with each Maine college, provided such 
an arrangement does not interfere with the other 
State games. A cross-country race, to come off 
Oct. 1 8th, has been arranged between the Fresh- 
man class and Maine Central Institute. Dr. 
Copeland, (chairman), Dr. Little and Dr. Whit- 
tier were appointed a committee to select a cut 
of a polar bear as Bowdoin' s Athletic symbol. 
It was also decided that in the future there will 
be a standard letter for each sport, and that a 
certificate will be given with each letter. 

At a meeting of the new and old boards of 
managers held in Hubbard Hall on June 18, 1913, 
the following officers were elected: Secretary, E. 
R. Elwell; Asst. Treasurer, A. H. MacCormick. 
Appropriations for the season of 1913-1914 were 
made as follows :

A meeting of the Maine Intercollegiate Base- 
ball Managers was held last Saturday in Water- 
ville. The following officers were elected : — 
O'Connell of Bates, President; Elwell of Bow- 
doin, Vice-President; Carpenter of Colby, Secre- 
tary ; Goodwin of Maine, Treasurer. It was pro- 
posed to have a baseball schedule of three games 
with each Maine college. Bates, Colby and Bow- 



doin were in favor, and Maine was opposed. The 
measure did not go through. Other matters of 
schedule were discussed. 

At a meeting of the Press Club at the Psi Up- 
silon House Thursday afternoon, D. K. Merrill 
'15 was elected chairman and Thomas H. Riley, 
Jr., '03 was chosen secretary and treasurer. The 
members are: Lippincott '10, Eaton '14, Merrill

Rev. Samuel Richard Smiley died at St. Lam- 
bert, Province of Quebec, Canada, May 3, 1913, 
after an illness of over a year. His classmates 
of the Class of 1894, gathered in Brunswick at 
their 19th reunion wish to give public expression 
of our heartfelt sorrow at this, the third death 
among our number. 

In undergraduate days, Brother Smiley is re- 
membered as a mature and earnest man, of sim- 
ple tastes and quiet demeanor; yet enjoying to 
the full every aspect of our college life, warmly 
interested in all pertaining to Bowdoin and the 
personal friend of every one of us. He had never 
been present with us at class, reunion ; hence few 
have had opportunity to meet him since gradua- 
tion; but he gave cordial support to our -under-: 
takings, and his loyalty to class and classmates 
never wavered. 

We take pride in the name he has left behind 
him as an efficient worker in his chosen field; in 

the respect and love of the communities where he 
labored (Lisbon Centre, N. Y., Colebrook and 
Penacook, N. H.) and in the heroism and Chris- 
tian fortitude shown by him as the victim of a 
most painful malady which baffled medical science 
to the very end.

'58. — At the age of seventy-six, and after fifty- 
four years' practice at law, William W. Abbott 
of Watertown, died May 19th in his law office at 

Mr. Abbott was born in Norridgewock, Me., 
Sept. 11, 1836, the son of Hon. John S. Abbott, at 
one time Attorney-General of Maine. He was 
graduated from Bowdoin in 1858, receiving the 
degree of A.M., as well as A.B. 

He was admitted to the Maine bar in 1859, and 
to the Massachusetts bar sixteen years latei. He 
was also a member of the New York bar and per- 
mitted to practice before the United States Su- 
preme Court. 

After practicing for thirty years in New York, 
he went twelve years ago to Boston, where he has 
been associated with his brother, John E. Abbott, 
town counsel of Watertown. 

Bowdoin indeed regrets the loss of another one 
of her successful graduates. 

'66. — Rev. George W. Kelley has recently is- 
sued a collection of poems entitled Songs of Re- 
membrance, which from their content are of spe- 
cial interest to Bowdoin men. 

'76. — Charles Davis Jameson, Mem. Am. Soc. 
C. E., American Red Cross Engineer, recently 
published a preliminary report on River, Lake, 
and Land Conservancy in Portions of the Prov- 
inces of Auhui and Kiangsu, North of the Yang- 
tsze River. 

'jj. — Rear Admiral Robert E. Peary has just 
been made a grand officer of the Legion of Honor 
by President Poincare at Paris. 

'81. — After a record of nineteen years of 
achievement at the South End in Boston, William 
I. Cole has departed to fill the newly created 
chair of Sociology at Wheaton College. His 
greatest work has undoubtedly been the South 
End Improvement Society — a live factor in civic 


betterment. His whole experience, however, has 
included nearly every phase of settlement work in 
America. Mr. Cole has established healthful 
sports for the youths, given them a taste for the 
arts, and provided vocational education. Along 
with these improvements, milk stations, baby 
clinics, district doctors, and the Municipal Recre- 
ation League have received an impetus. 

Although Boston will experience a tremendous 
loss, yet Wheaton will make a great gain. Bow- 
doin is proud not only of Mr. W. I. Cole, but also 
of Rev. S. V. Cole '74, tne president of Wheaton 

'89. — William M. Emery has recently compiled 
A Genealogy of the Grinnell Family, with Some 
Account of Allied Families, for Mrs. George S. 
Bowdoin, of New York City. The work is a fin- 
ished and scholarly production, attesting well Mr. 
Emery's expert ability as a genealogist. 

'91. — The degree of Doctor of Ophthamolology 
which originated at Oxford University, England, 
several years ago, was conferred for the first time 
by an American institution at the annual com- 
mencement exercises of the University of Colo- 
rado when Dr. George F. Libby, of Denver, re- 
ceived the degree. Dr. Libby is a native of Port- 
land and a graduate of Bowdoin Medical School, 
class of 1891. He has been located in Colorado 
since 1900, and in his department is one of the 
most successful specialists in the city of Denver. 

'99. — Drew B. Hall of Somerville, Mass., has 
been elected president of the Massachusetts Li- 
brary Club for the year 1913-14. He has recently 
had the pleasure of moving the collection under 
his charge into one of the most attractive library 
buildings in the State and one which bears evi- 
dence of his own careful planning in many of its

NO. 13 


In a game full of sensations, misplays, brilliant 
long runs and missed punts Wesleyan won from 
Bowdoin last Saturday by two touchdowns to 
Bowdoin's one. Despite the many features caused 
by end runs and misplays there was displayed a 
great deal of high class straight football by both 
teams. The two elevens were well matched. 
Wesleyan's line was considerably heavier than 
ours and presented a defense through which the 
best plunges of Bob Weatherill, Herb Foster and 
Brigham could not penetrate consistently. In 
backfield work both quartets were about equal. 
At ends the Bowdoin men were outplayed by the 
opposing linemen. In fact Wesleyan's attack was 
mainly one of long end runs. The forward passes 
which they have used so successfully in the past 
were for the most part ineffectual. Out of about 
fourteen attempts only four were successful. 
Foster for Bowdoin uncovered a hitherto un- 
known ability for solving these plays and him- 
self frustrated seven attempts. Three times he 
caught the pass himself and twice ran through a 
broken field across the goal line, each time a dis- 
tance of eighty yards. The second of these touch- 
downs, however, did not count as one of his over- 
anxious teammates galloping in his wake inter- 
fered with a pursuing Middletown player, cost- 
ing the '"White" a heavy penalty and the game. 
The third return was made with a Wesleyan at- 
tempt to score on the pass. Herb brought this 
one out a good fifteen yards from our goal and 

During the first half there was no scoring by 
either side. Once Wesleyan got the ball down to 
the last chalk mark, but the Bowdoin defense stif- 
fened and the home team was held for downs. 
Aside from this one crisis the two periods were 
spent in discovering the weak points of defense 
on either side. Lew Brown sent the Bowdoin 
plunging backs into the line but soon discovered 
that no consistent gains could be made in this di- 
rection. A forward pass was attempted by Bow- 
doin in the second quarter and was successful, 
Lew receiving the ball himself. A number of 
quarterback runs netted Bowdoin yardage but the 
ball was never within dangerous proximity of 
either goal except at the time already mentioned. 

During this half Wesleyan attempted forward 

passes but they did not meet with much success. 
Lewis punted several times and aside from the 
first kick which was blocked, he did a very credit- 
able job. His punts were high and long. 

The second half opened with Wesleyan kicking 
off to Bowdoin. The ball was lost to the oppo- 
nents after a few rushes and Wesleyan carried 
the sphere well down towards Bowdoin's goal in 
a number of end runs and line plunges. Bowdoin 
stiffened and it seemed as if it was to be the same 
old story of a see-saw battle with probably no 
scoring by either side, when Wesleyan tried once 
more her pet play, the forward pass. The ball 
sailed beautifully into the arms of a white-stock- 
inged player and before the grandstands could 
recognize who it was he was off down the field 
for an eighty-five yard sprint for a touchdown. 
As Foster crossed the line the nearest man to him 
was a Bowdoin end. 

Leadbetter kicked an easy goal. Bowdoin then 
settled down to a defensive game. There was no 
more scoring in the quarter. 

At the beginning of the last period, Wesleyan 
seemed again to threaten Bowdoin's goal and 
again the ball was hurled from Capt. Eustis's 
arms to an expectant end. But Foster was there 
to catch it and he was off again down the field, 
this time working his way by side-stepping, whirl- 
ing and the straight arm, not being caught until 
he squatted with the ball under the goal posts. 
But here came the tragic sequel of the penalty for 
interference and it was Bowdoin's ball on Wes- 
leyan's twenty yard line. A few line plays were 
unsuccessful. Floyd was sent in to try a drop 
kick but the ball went wide of the mark. 

But the end was not yet. The ball was worked 
back into the center of the field. Wesleyan was 
forced to kick. Brown playing close for fear of 
the ever-probable forward pass had to run back 
to receive the high spiral and failed to get under 
it. Hallock, a Wesleyan end, pounced on it and 
was downed on Bowdoin's one yard line. On the 
next play Slocum went over for Wesleyan's first 
touchdown. Eustis kicked a goal. 

With a few minutes left to play both teams 
were determined to avoid a tie score. Deetjen, 
Wesleyan's tall, speedy fullback, was given the 
ball for a succession of end runs, Bowdoin's weak 
point of defense, and in a series of brilliant 


dashes he carried the ball to Bowdoin's goal line 
where it was pushed over for the second Wes- 
leyan touchdown. The goal was missed. 

Aside from the scoring plays there was little 
to indicate that either team had the advantage. 
In the first half of the game Wesleyan kept the 
ball in Bowdoin territory, but in the second half 
Bowdoin gained considerable ground by end runs 
and two well executed forward passes. 

Bowdoin's line from tackle to tackle played a 
steady game against worthy opponents. Lew 
Brown at quarter ran the team well and gained 
ground several times by brilliant end runs. 
Weatherill was very strong on defense, tackling 
hard and sure, never missing his man. Brigham 
made a very good showing in his initial appear- 
ance in a Bowdoin uniform. Foster played the 
best game of his career on defense, tackling hard 
and covering both sides of the line. 

It was a game well worth seeing, with two good 
teams pitted against each other. Coach McCann 
was not at all pessimistic over the showing made 
by his men. The treatment at the hands of the 
Wesleyan management was excellent.

The Big Green team of Hebron outplayed the 
Bowdoin Second in practically every department 
of the game at Hebron Saturday and got away 
with five touchdowns and five goals. The prep 
school men outweighed the collegians and were 
much speedier on the heavy field. Hebron used 
a formation which netted big gains around the 
ends, Nadeau and Donegan being the bright 
stars on the offensive. Capt. Allen of Hebron 

was strong on both the offensive and defensive 
and his end of the line was practically impregna- 
ble. Colbath made good gains on skin-tackle 
plays at first but was slowed up by an injured leg 
and the second team resorted to open work. A 
number of forward passes were tried, one being 
successful and good for 20 yards. Capt. Man- 
nix played a splendid defensive game and once 
nearly got away for a touchdown after running 
a fumble back 45 yards. 

Hebron got their first touchdown in the first 
few minutes of play after the time-honored shoe- 
string play had failed to work.

After seven and one-half innings replete with 
good, bad, and indifferent baseball, the Sopho- 
mores triumphed over the Freshmen Saturday 
morning on the Delta by a score of 6 to 3. The 
Sophomores took the initiative in run-getting by 
sending a man over the plate in the second inning, 
and by adding three more tallies in the third and 
fourth innings, obtained a commanding lead, 
which they increased by two more runs in the 

Bradford, the 191 7 twirler, pitched well, keep- 
ing the hits fairly well scattered, and glaring mis- 
plays at critical instances on the part of his team- 
mates were responsible for half of the Sophomore 
runs. Fraser, who was in the box for the Sophs, 
pitched air-tight ball until the seventh inning, 
striking out eight men and holding his opponents 
down to one run and three hits. In the seventh, 
however, the Freshmen attacked his shoots and 



slants viciously, and batted in two runs with 
three singles, a two and a three bagger. At this 
point rain put an end to the game. 

For the Sophomores, McElwee and Kelley 
played brilliantly both at the bat and in the field, 
and Merrill, Greeley and Larrabee uncorked some 
fine stickwork. Nute with two singles and Brad- 
ford with a screaming three base hit were the 
headliners with the bat for the Freshmen, and 
Captain Carll and Marston played a steady all- 
around game.

In the game with Trinity at Brunswick next 
Saturday, Bowdoin will run up. against one of the 
best small college teams in the country. A team 
that is said to have the best small college coaching 
system, Trinity has always had a wonderful or- 
ganization and Bowdoin's work Saturday must 
be of the best in order to win. 

Hudson, Trinity's captain, is rated as one of 
the best plunging backs in the country. He made 
the team his Freshman year and was placed at 
fullback on Walter Camp's second all-American 
eleven. Since that time he has won at least hon- 
orable mention. Bowdoin men who have played 
against him remember his line-bucking tactics. 
One of the veterans recently said, ''Hudson is 
the worst man I ever had to tackle." 

It is in Hudson that the center of Trinity's cen- 
ter of attack and defense is laid. In Saturday's 
game with Worcester Polytechnic, which Trinity 
won by the score of 48 to o, Trinity displayed 
nothing but old-fashioned football, and it is 
thought that this will be the case with Bowdoin. 

The Trinity game is the only college game in 
the state for Oct. 11 and it is thought that a large 
number of football enthusiasts will journey to 
Brunswick to see the contest. It is the first time 
that Trinity's football team has ever entered the 
state. Bleachers are being erected opposite the 
grandstand to accommodate the overflow. 

Bowdoin's ends will be given the greatest at- 
tention of any part of the team during this week's 
practice. In Saturday's game with Wesleyau, 
Wesleyan made its longest and most consistent 
gains around both ends, while through the line 
and with the forward pass, the Middletown col- 
lege was practically helpless. 

Although the last game was a defeat, Bowdoin 
supporters have reason to feel confident that the 
team will be in far better shape by next Saturday 
and that by the time of the Maine series a nicely 
trained eleven will be ready for the whistle. 

Fitzgerald, who played a number of games last 
year both at half and end, is back on the squad, 
and although he was not in condition for the last 
game, next Saturday will probably see him 
against Trinity. Moulton is ineligible until No- 
vember, but it is hoped that he will be able to 
play in at least some of the Maine games. In 
the backfield, Captain Weatherill, Foster and 
Brigham all played in fine style Saturday, while 
Foster in particular shone in both offensive and 
defensive work. Mountfort's work at guard was 
the cause of comment and it is thought that he 
will prove a stumbling block for Trinity's plung- 
ing backs next Saturday.

The First Defeat 

It has come. The first early season defeat. 
But, take notice, those who have been watching 
the team from the inside are not discouraged, are 
hardly disappointed. The task of making a Bow- 
doin team this year is a big one. It requires gen- 
ius and it requires time. If there is any man 
that can give us the team we are looking for it 
is Coach Tom McCann working with Trainer Ma- 
gee. The loss to Wesleyan seemed hard, indeed, 
it was conditional with so many "ifs," but it is 
through such experiences that weaknesses are 
found and the team is rounded into shape. This 
is no time to commence criticism. Just trust and 
wait ! 

More Cheering 

It is early yet to expect good concerted cheer- 
ing and singing but an effort must be made at 
once to develop this branch of our college activ- 
ity. At the New Hampshire State game the ex- 

hibition in the grandstand was poor. The team 
was cheered when they were winning and a pall 
of silence fell over the crowd when the ball ap- 
proached our goal line. When it looks dark for 
old Bowdoin, when the visitors are driving our 
men back, then if ever comes the need for the 
best our lungs can utter, that our sturdy warriors 
may know we are behind them. Next Saturday 
we meet Trinity, a foe Worthy of our best metal, 
a rival of growing importance. Let the ninety- 
five per cent, of the students whose loyalty for the 
College can be expressed for the time only by 
cheering do their work well. Let's have our 
cheering better organized with a song leader and 
songs, and assistant cheer leaders. Lets everyone 
of us get in and yell. 


Although the season is yet too young to make 
any estimate even more than fairly accurate, 
some comparison can be made of the work of the 
Maine college elevens. By holding Yale to the 
score of to o at New Haven last Saturday, 
Maine surprised even her most ardent supporters 
and Maine stock has taken a decided brace as a 
result. But at the same time, it should not be for- 
gotten that Maine made first down but once and 
that the Yale goal line was practically out of 
danger at all times. Maine's punts were short. 
Fumbles were the cause of Yale's failure to score, 
according to newspaper reports of the game. 
In the Maine lineup there were eight veterans 
Saturday, — Murray, Sawyer, Baker, Gulliver, 
Ruffner, Martin, Donahue and Cobb. Maine 
used new men at both ends and at left half, and 
substituted four times. Maine plays Rhode Is- 
land State next Saturday. 

The Colby team that defeated Brown earlier in 
the season was bewildered by the clever system 
of forward passes and line plays that Dartmouth 
offered. Colby has Fraser and Lowney in the 
backfield, the two men who proved Colby's great- 
est assets in the Bowdoin-Colby game last year. 
In Captain Dacey at left tackle, Colby has a 
strong man, both for breaking up plays and for 
opening up holes for offense. 

Bates made first down but once against Har- 
vard Saturday, that once being on an on-side kick 
that netted 35 yards. Bates was defeated 14 to o, 
and although Harvard beat Maine 34 to o it is not 
safe to say that Bates has a stronger team than 
Maine, for Harvard used a number of second 
string men Saturday and played a conservative 
game throughout. Bates made eight substitutions. 
Next Saturday Bates plays Exeter. In last year's 
game Bates was beaten 6 to 0. 




It has been announced that the Annie Talbot 
Cole lecturer this year will be Alfred Noyes, the 
young English poet who was recently mentioned 
for the poet laureateship of England. The dates 
of the lectures and the subjects which Mr. Noyes 
will take have not yet been announced. He is 
going to lecture at Harvard on "The Sea in Eng- 
lish Poetry." The trip to America which Mr. 
Noyes took last year was his first trip outside of 
England. He is an Oxford graduate and rowed 
on the crew there, his athletic prowess and manli- 
ness being the popular subject for many magazine 
articles. While at Oxford he began to publish 
poetry and since then he has made his living by 
his writings. He asserts that writing poetry is a 
plain, every-day task. Mr. Noyes is very fond of 
the sea as a theme and is also a great exponent of 
universal peace, a subject on which he lectured in 
this country last year. He is best known as the 
author of many lyrics, "The Barrel Organ," 
"Forty Singing Seamen," and others. Lately he 
has been writing dramas in blank verse. His last 
work is "Tales of the Mermaid Tavern." 


The first College Preacher of the year, Charles 
Reynolds Brown, D.D. , will- speak next Sunday 
morning at the Church on the Hill and at after- 
noon chapel. He will also be present at the 
Young People's meeting in the Vestry at 7.15. 
Dr. Brown received an A. B. from the University 
of Iowa in 1883, A.M. in 1886, and S.T.B. from 
Boston University in 1899. He was pastor of 
the First Congregational church of Oakland, Cal. 
from 1896 to 191 1 and since then has been Dean 
of the Divinity School of Yale University. He 
has been special lecturer at Leland Stanford, Jr., 
Yale, Cornell, and Columbia. He is the author 
of numerous books and has been a popular Col- 
lege Preacher at Bowdoin in past years. 


The fall tennis tournament, for bringing out 
new material for the team next spring, is now go- 
ing on. The matches are posted on the Chapel 
bulletin board and the management desires that 
the matches be played off as soon as possible. 
Balls can be procured from Manager MacCor- 
mick. Two sets out of three will decide the 
match, except in the finals which requires three 
sets out of five. Those who have entered are as 
follows: Eaton '15, Hall '16, Head '16, Pierce 
'17, Card '15, N. Little '17, Nason '14, Rickard 
'17, Larrabee '16, Greeley '16, Ogle '17, Smith 
'15, Flynt '17, D. White '16, Woodman '16, Mer- 

rill '16, Wilson '14, McCargo '14, Thompson '15, 
Boardman '16, Wing '15, Parsons '16, Marr '14, 
Dalrymple '17, Ladd '17, Leigh '14, Coffin '15, 
Nickerson '16, Payson '14. A great deal of prom- 
ising material has been uncovered and the pros- 
pects are excellent for the best team in years. 


With the return of Capt. Tarbox '14, cross- 
country has received a decided boost. About 30 
men are taking easy runs over the regular course 
daily and being carefully trained by Coach Ma- 
gee for the races later in the season. An inter- 
class race between the four classes and a race 
between the Freshmen and Maine Central Insti- 
tute will be run. The race between M.I.T. and 
Bowdoin scheduled for Oct. 24 may be cancelled 
so the Maine Intercollegiate race on Nov. 5 at 
Waterville will be the real objective of the sea- 
son's work. Capt. Tarbox '14, McWilliams '15, 
and Bacon '15 are the only veterans of last year's 
team left in college and Bacon is taking easy 
work as a result of an operation for appendicitis 
last spring. Besides these men Irving '16, Cutler 
'15, and Crosby '17 are showing up well. 


The 1916 proclamations bear witness to the 
good taste of the Sophomores in combining new 
rules with old regulations for the conduct of the 
Freshmen. Systematic procedure marked the 
wielding of the paddles Friday night, and all who 
made good their escape while their brethren were 
entertaining the Sophomores have been duly 
warned that they will sleep no more until justice is 
meted out. Perhaps the only unfavorable criti- 
cism of the proclamations is that the Freshmen 
should have been reminded of the fact that they 
are supposed to remain in chapel until the other 
classes have passed out. 


At a meeting of the Sophomore class Satur- 
day, September 27, the following officers were 
chosen: President, J. A. Dunn; Secretary and 
Treasurer, D. H. Sayward; Baseball Captain, D. 
F. Kelley; Baseball Manager, J. S. Brackett. 

There was a Freshman class meeting in Hub< 
bard Hall, Tuesday evening, September 30. Pre- 
vious to class elections upper class-men addressed 
the class in regard to the various Bowdoin activi- 

After the speaking the elections were held, and 
the following were chosen : President pro tern, 
L. D. Flynt ; Baseball Captain, W. Carll ; Baseball 



Manager, F. A. Haseltine ; Cross-Country Cap- 
tain, C. H. Crosby; Cross-Country Manager, 
George E. Colbath. 


The next Qualifying Examination for the 
Rhodes Scholarship for Maine will be held in the 
Senate Chamber, State House, Augusta, October 
14th and 15th, 1913, in accordance with the fol- 
lowing : 

Tuesday, October 14 

10 a. m. to 12 noon. — Translation from Latin 
into English. 

2 p. m. to 4 p. m. — Latin Prose. 

5 P. m. to 7 p. m. — Arithmetic. 

Wednesday, October 15 

10 a. m. to 12 noon. — Translation from Greek 
into English. 

2 p. m. to 3 p. m. — Latin Grammar. 

3.10 p. m. to 4.10 p. m. — Greek Grammar. 

5 p. m. to 7 p. m. — Algebra or Geometry. 


The first meeting of the year was held last 
Thursday night in the Association rooms. The 
address of the evening was delivered by Rev. 
Artley B. Parson, of St. Paul's, Boston, an old 
friend of Bowdoin. His subject was the "Influ- 
ence of the Bible on Modern Life." After men- 
tioning its influence on life in the past, he went 
on to show that we now hold a freer attitude to- 
ward it. than our forefathers. We realize it was 
written to show the vision of God, not to teach 
geology, astronomy, or history. It reveals the 
ideal of true manhood in the portrayal of Christ's 
life and its influence today is shown by the in- 
creasing interest in forwarding the kingdom of 
God by the betterment of mankind. 

President Brown of the Y. M. C. A., in closing 
the meeting, spoke a few words for the Freshman 
Bible classes which started last Sunday. 


A silver medal has been given to the Art Build- 
ing by the son of Prof. Stowe whose property it 
formerly was. Prof. Calvin E. Stowe, the hus- 
band of Mrs. Harriet Beecher Stowe, was a grad- 
uate of Bowdoin in the class of 1824 and was Col- 
lins professor of Natural and Revealed Religion 
from 1850 to 1852. 

On one side of the medal is the inscription 
"Peucinian Society" and underneath it "Bowd. 
Coll. Instituted Nov. 22, 1805." On the reverse 
side, between two engraved pine trees is "Pin Loq 
Sem Hab. Calvin E. Stowe." The motto, "pinos 

loquentes semper habet" (E. 8, 22), is translated 
"he always has the whispering pines." 

The Peucinian and Athenaean were rival liter- 
ary and social societies which flourished for about 
fifty years and were supplanted by the present 
day Greek letter fraternities. 

C&e iLibrarp Cable 

Of special interest to Bowdoin men is President 
Hyde's latest book, The Quest of the Best. The 
cause for the local interest may be stated best in 
the words of its preface which we quote : 

"At Bowdoin College we are trying to bring 
professors and students together in common in- 
terests and tasks. As one application of this 
preceptorial method, we have a class of six stu- 
dents conducted by six professors. Each pro- 
fessor takes the six students for a period of about 
six weeks, during which they work together on 
some form of writing-verse, drama, essay, ora- 
tion, translation or short story. Then the result 
of their work together is submitted to the entire 
group of professors and students. 

"As it fell to me this year to conduct this class 
for one period, having these lectures to prepare, 
I asked the class to do it with me, explaining the 
general plan, submitting for their discussion and 
criticism such portions as I had written, and as- 
signing to them certain portions to write. Ac- 
cordingly the following pages are a joint product ; 
not only representing as the result of criticisms 
and suggestions their fresher recollections of boy 
life, but in several sections being their work pre- 
cisely as they wrote it." 

The sub title, "Insights into Ethics for Parents, 
Teachers and Leaders of Boys," explains to some 
extent the nature of the work. It takes the boy 
in the primitive stage of "natural badness" and 
shows by illustration and reasoning how he can 
be brought out of that state into the following of 
the highest ideals, "the Quest of the Best," not 
by artificially good rules and precepts but by the 
influence of the personality of a parent or friend 
with such ideals. Throughout there is an abun- 
dance of illustrations taken from actual boy life 
and problems. 

The introduction states that it is a book for the 
top shelf, out of the boy's reach, but the college 
student, although still a boy in most respects is 
given accession to that top shelf. Its counsels 
directed to workers with boys have much in them 
that is illuminating and vitally important to un- 
dergraduate daily life. It will undoubtedly be 
read with great profit and interest by the Orient 



Club ano Council Meetings 

The Student Council met Sept. 29 and the mat- 
ter of deferred initiations was talked over. 
Among the fraternities sentiment is against it, 
and the Council referred the matter back to them, 
recommending that the initiations be held Oct. 14. 

The class rush will take place on the Delta in 
place of the Chapel steps as the ground before the 
Chapel is thought dangerous for such a conflict. 
In connection with this affair the Chapel bell will 
be rung hereafter only on the occasion of a var- 
sity victory or some other occasion equally im- 

A music committee to handle the college "sings" 
will soon be appointed, as will an assistant man- 
ager of the college calender. 

The Council took up the matter of "Proclama- 
tions" and gave them the usual stamp of appro- 

The matter of seeing the teams off was dis- 
cussed by the Council. 

The Board of Managers met Wednesday, Oct. 
1, and voted to grant extensions on the blanket 
tax to those who had made applications for them. 
It also voted on the payment of minor bills, and 
passed the following resolution :

$175 above the unprovisional appropriations, and 
the sinking fund of 5 per cent, of the first semes- 
ter's tax, $100 shall be paid to the Football As-

Saturday's intercollegiate football games were 
conspicuous for their one-sidedness. Two of 
twenty-nine contests resulted in tie scores, and in 
the remaining twenty-seven the winners amassed 
878 points to 30 for the six losing teams who 
succeeded in scoring at all. 

Dr. John Casper Branner, one of the oldest

NO. 14 


After forty-four minutes of hard football on 
Whittier Field last Saturday Bowdoin and Trin- 
ity left the field neither winners or losers; each 
had to be contented with a scoreless tie. But for 
our team, still remembering the defeat of last 
year, it was a virtual victory. Not that we out- 
played Trinity, for the game was in every sense 
a drawn battle, but to tie them indicated a marked 
improvement over last year, a victory for coach- 
ing and teamwork. 

Most of the time the ball was see-sawing back 
and forth out of the danger zone. Three or four 
times Trinity threatened our goal, but lost the 
ball on bad fumbling. Two or three times our 
team worked the oval towards the enemy's goal 
posts by punting and pouncing on fumbles, but 
lost the ball on downs. In punting, Bowdoin had 
the better of the argument, Alton Lewis getting 
away long, high spirals and the ends holding the 
advantage gained by nailing the runner on the 
return. In rushing the ball Trinity had a little 
the better of the argument, Hudson gaining con- 
siderable ground through our line. In following 
the ball our team gained considerable advantage 
over the heavier opponents. 

There were no stars in the contest. To Bow- 
doin's credit it may be said Hudson was not the 
star. This powerful fullback found his advance 
impeded by three or four sturdy linemen at every 
juncture and was ineffective. In his line plung- 
ing he established a new forward pass which 
might be styled the inter-team pass. On being 
tackled he seemed to toss the ball forward, usual- 
ly into the expectant grasp of Herb Foster. 

The grounds were in very good shape consider- 
ing the condition df the weather, but the ball was 
very slippery. 

On offense Trinity attempted several forward 
passes, all of which were blocked, usually by Fos- 
ter, except one which placed the ball within strik- 
ing distance of our goal. But the ball was soon 
lost by a fumble. Bowdoin executed no success- 
ful forward passes. Our offense consisted mainly 
in straight line bucking, interspersed with simple 
end runs. 

On defense the new Bowdoin lineup presented 

a remarkably fine showing. Weatherill and Lead- 
better at ends were sure in their tackles and got 
down well under punts. The line from end to end 
had no weak spots. The secondary defense was 
sure and kept the Trinity backfield from any ex- 
tra yardage. The tackling of the Bowdoin team 
was the best seen on Whittier Field in years. 
Just as the team showed steady improvement in 
its second game, Saturday's contest showed it in 
a more advanced condition. Coach McCann may 
be said to have solved the problem of defense. 
The return of Lew Brown to the lineup may 
cause a shift of positions but the combination 
used last Saturday may be counted on to stop the 
attack of a powerful offense by any of Bowdoin's 

A large crowd witnessed the contest, consider- 
ing the condition of the weather. The story of 
the game is told in another way in the following 
paragraphs : 

Trinity kicked off to Fitzgerald on the 20 yard 
line, who run the ball back 14 yards. In three 
rushes Bowdoin made five and an attempt to make 
first down failed, Trinity getting the ball on Bow- 
doin's 42 yard line. Aided by a five yard penalty 
for Bowdoin, Trinity advanced to the 25 yard 
mark, but Foster spoiled a Trinity forward pass 
and took the ball. After unsuccessful attempts at 
hitting the line, Bowdoin attempted to punt, but 
the pass was bad and Trinity got the ball on Bow- 
doin's 12. Leadbetter picked up a Trinity fum- 
ble, and Lewis punted from behind his own goal 
to the 35 yard line. The period ended with the 
ball Trinity's on Bowdoin's 14 yard line. 

Again Trinity fumbled and Foster recovered. 
Lewis punted to the 45 yard line and Foster 
nabbed a Trinity forward pass, getting away for 
ten. Again Lewis punted, and Bowdoin held for 
downs. Lewis punted outside on the 1-1, and 
Bowdoin blocked Trinity's punt out. The half 
ended with the ball in Bowdoin's possession on 
Trinity's three yard line. 

Mountfort kicked to Cole who ran the ball back 
to the 30 yard mark and Trinity punted to Fitz- 
gerald. Colbath made ten and Barry recovered a 
Bowdoin fumble. Colbath fumbled and Trinity 
got the ball on her own 28 yard line. Floyd re- 


placed LaCasce. Foster recovered a fumble by

caught a Bowdoin forward pass on Bowdoin's 30. 
Bowdoin was penalized 15 for holding. After a 
number of line plays with no large gain, the third 
quarter ended with the ball in Bowdoin's posses- 
sion on her own 23 yard line. 

Weatherill made two and Lewis punted to Trin- 
ity's 30 yard station. Trinity returned with a 
punt of 40 yards. Lewis punted to Trinity's 35 
yard line. Weatherill making a star tackle on the 
40. Trinity punted to Fitzgerald on Bowdoin's 
18, Fitz taking the ball in 22 yards, after fumbling 
and recovering. After Bowdoin had punted, Ives 
threw a forward pass 20 yards to Cole, who made 
ten before he was downed. Bowdoin got the ball 
on her own 25 yard line. Pratt recovered a Bow- 
doin fumble. Wessels replaced Kinney. The 
game ended with the ball in Trinity's possession 
on her own 45 yard line.

In the second and deciding game of the Fresh- 
man-Sophomore baseball series, played Wednes- 
day afternoon on the Delta, the Sophomores 
again took the Freshmen into camp by a score of 
3 to 1. The Sophs annexed an extra brace of 
tallies in the first half of the sixth, but as dark- 
ness put an end to hostilities before the Fresh- 
men could take their turn at bat, the score reverts 
to the end of the fifth inning, and the two runs do 
not count. 

The teams were about on a par in hitting, but 
as in Saturday's game, the Freshmen fell down 
badly in fielding, and their eight errors aided ma- 
terially in increasing the Sophomore run column. 
The Sophs, however, gave their pitcher gilt edged 
support, only one of their two misplays being a 
factor in the run-getting. 

The greatest feature of the game was the 
pitching duel between Knight and Bradford, both 
of whom twirled in highly commendable fashion. 
The dark day was an asset to the pitchers, and 
both used their speed to good effect, Knight al- 
lowing three hits to Bradford's four, and regis- 
tering eight strike-outs, to the latter's ten. "Mex- 
ico" Olson smothered several difficult throws at 
first base and Carll, the Freshman captain, be- 
sides fielding his position excellently, clouted the 
longest hit of the game, a sizzling two-bagger to 
right field. The score :

College and the Fraternity 

Tonight the various fraternities on the campus, 
according to the usual custom, hold the annual 
initiation ceremony and celebrate with feast and 
song the incoming of new brothers. As a pleas- 
ing addition to the festivities a number of the 
alumni return and join hands with the under- 
graduates in welcoming their new members. But 
this is not alone a fraternity occasion, it is a 
Bowdoin affair as well. Each group is cheered 
by its sister group. Each band of loyal fraternity 
brothers ends the evening by gathering in the 
white moonlight beneath the Chapel towers and 
pledging anew their devotion to the College. 
Happily we may say, this appropriate closing of 
the evening's fun is no idle ceremony, no empty 
tradition. It signifies all that is good in our fra- 
ternity system, all the real interfraternity fellow- 
ship which makes life on our campus emphasize 
not only class and fraternity, but always pre- 
eminent — Bowdoin. And to you, members of 
1917, let us say, that your elder classmen, all 

Bowdoin men, are in earnest about this. It is for 
you at this to dedicate yourselves to the same 
transcendant loyalty to Alma Mater in the midst 
of your new fraternity life. 

Initiations Not Deferred 

The 1912-13 Student Council after investiga- 
tion and discussion proposed to the various fra- 
ternities the plan of deferring initiations. By six 
of the eight groups the plan was adopted. It was 
generally understood at the time of the closing of 
College in June that the new plan would be put 
in operation this fall. But the very nature of the 
scheme made a mere majority insufficient to in- 
sure its successful issue. The new Student Coun- 
cil, realizing that they were in no great degree 
bound by last June's provisional and hasty action, 
saw the danger of destroying the usual unanimity 
of the fraternities and re-submitted the matter to 
the fraternities with the recommendation that the 
original scheme of initiation be maintained. Their 
recommendation was unanimously ratified. But 
this plan is not, perhaps, permanently doomed. 
As long as Bowdoin continues her lack of regu- 
lations in the face of a wave for greater regula- 
tion by the fraternities in other colleges, these 
questions will constantly recur. We hope, how- 
ever, that they will be faced with the same ques- 
tioning spirit, and the same candid criticism that 
the deferring plan has met with. Because our 
system is successful we are not sure that it is 
perfect. But because it is unique we should ap- 
ply to every advertised reform a searching exam- 
ination to see if it will really cure ills present 
among us. 

From the Chapel 

To the Bowdoin undergraduate accustomed by 
experience to a gossipy attitude towards his fel- 
lows, the attitude which is too prone to look for 
weak spots in others, the message of Dr. Brown 
in his talk at Vespers last Sunday, the message of 
good will towards one's mates, of finding in one's 
roommate, one's rival, the best that he is and may 
be, is of a refreshing nature. Too often it is our 
practise to seek to re-form our younger college- 
mates by "kidding" them, by laughing at their 
weak points. And how would it be to try the other 
method? Suppose we seek to help some one 
friend by encouragement, by sympathy, by in- 

The Freshman goes out for a college activity 
and there are still those among us who will laugh 
at the quavering voice, the spindle legs, and the 
seemingly foolish persistency. But, thanks to 
Bowdoin tradition, there are those, — trainers and 



coaches and captains and good Bowdoin men — 
who see in the crude material the better man in- 
side, the track star of three years hence. Let us 
all who look outside of our own little dormitory 
room for our interests, pursue this manner in ex- 
tending our influence to our college-mates, in 
helping to shape life on the campus.

Manager Koughan of the track team has an- 
nounced the events for this fall. Every man who 
is not out for some activity should participate if 
possible in the interclass contests, as much new 
Varsity material may be brought to light. The 
schedule follows : 

Oct. 20. Freshman Cross-Country team vs. 
Maine Central Institute at Brunswick. 

Oct. 24. Interclass Cross-Country race. 

Oct. 25. Interclass track meet "on Whittier 

Nov. 5. M. I. Cross-Country race at Water- 


Although Manager Elwell is not yet able to an- 
nounce the dates of the early season games, the 
dates for the State championship baseball games 

next spring have been decided on, as follows : 

Saturday, May 2. Bowdoin vs. Maine at Bruns- 

Saturday, May 9. Bowdoin vs. Colby at Bruns- 

Wednesday, May 20. Bowdoin vs. Maine at 

Wednesday, May 27. Bowdoin vs. Colby at 

Saturday, May 30. Bowdoin vs. Bates at Lew- 

Friday, June 5. Bowdoin vs. Bates at Bruns-

Under the care of Trainer Magee the Cross- 
Country squad is fast rounding into shape. The 
men are being sent over the course by the stand- 
pipe two or three times a week. This long grind 
is alternated by sprinting and distance work 
ranging from a quarter, up to a mile and a half 
or two miles. 

Wednesday a hare and hound race was held 
both for the purpose of interesting the fellows, 
and also to condition them. Irving '16 and Har- 
graves '16 were sent out with bags of paper which 
they scattered behind them as they ran. About 
five minutes later the rest of the squad started off 
on the paper trail. 

The hares reached home in safety, leading the 
hounds by a wide margin. 

The squad at present contains the following 
men: 1914 — Capt. Tarbox, Wright, Donahue, 
Merrill; 1915— Keegan, Cutler, Smith, McWil- 
liams, Richardson, Livingstone; 1916 — Hargraves, 
Irving, White, Fuller, Ginty, Winter, Sayward; 
igiy — Crosby, Sampson, Balfe, Fenning, Noyes, 

The race between the . Freshmen and Maine 
Central Institute, a team which is coached by 
Capt. Charlie Haskell of last year's Varsity track 
team, will be run Monday, October 20, at 
Brunswick. The interclass run will come off 
soon after this in place of the run with the Mas- 
sachusetts Institute of Technology. 


Bowdoin plays Vermont at Burlington Satur- 
day and although it is hard to make a comparison 
of the teams at this early stage, the indications 
are that Vermont has not an extremely strong 
team. Vermont was beaten by Dartmouth 33 to 
7 last Saturday in spite of the fact that Dart- 
mouth had the lighter line. Vermont will prob- 
ably be the heaviest team that Bowdoin plays this, 


Bowdoin's lineup will probably be the same as 
that of the Trinity game with the possibility of 
Brig-ham's being used in the back field. With 
another week at end, Weatherill and Leadbetter 
should develop in fine shape and should give the 
team as good wing defense and offense as any 
Maine team has had for a number of years. Lead- 
better's injury Saturday, although painful, is not 
serious and he is now in as good condition as 
ever. Mountfort played a stellar game in the line 
against Trinity and was the means of breaking 
up more than one play before it was started. The 
problem in regard to quarterback is no slight one, 
and although no official statement has been given 
out, Lew Brown will probably start if his injured 
leg is in condition to permit it. 

Whalen, Vermont's tackle and captain, has 
played a good game throughout the year, and in 
the Dartmouth game tried a goal from the field 
from the 55 yard mark, but the kick fell short. 
Currier, Vermont's quarter, ran the length of the 
field twice on two intercepted forward passes, but 
one was disallowed on account of holding. 

The team will leave for Burlington Friday 
morning, will pass the night there and will leave 
for home by sleeper directly after the game. 
Nineteen men, including coaches and manager, 
will make the trip. 


As a result of the Glee Club trials, the follow- 
ing men have been retained: Tenors — West '15, 
Card '15, Carter '16, R. Evans '15, Christy '15, 
Fobes '17, Hescock '16, Haseltine '17, McKenney 
'15, Melloon '15, Rollins '15, Shea '14, Wilson 
'14, Woodman '16. Basses — Allen '15, Boardman 
'16, Dunton '15, Eaton '14, Fortin '16, Leadbetter 
'16, Littlefield '16, Merrill '16, Munroe '14, Phil- 
lips ' 1 7, Parmenter '16, Rawson ' 15, Seward '17, 

The Maine trip will probably begin a week 
earlier than usual, about the second week in Jan- 
uary. The management is also hoping for a New 
York trip and negotiations are already under way 
although nothing certain has yet been decided. 
All men who are at all proficient with the mando- 
lin are urged to hand their names in at once to 
Barton at the Theta Delta Chi house. 

Bowdoin graduates and undergraduates are re- 
minded that November first is the time limit set 
for the Prize Song Contest. All songs composed 
in competition for the prize of $50 should be sent 
to Professor Edward H. Wass on or before that 

Memorial Hall, was very well attended in spite of 
the weather. A large number of Freshmen par- 
ticularly turned out and with the upperclassmen 
present made up in volume on the cheers and 
songs what was lacking in unison. The band 
made its appearance with fourteen pieces under 
its new leader, Jones '15. Callahan '14, the cheer 
leader, was in charge of the Sing. Several more 
will be held to get the new men acquainted with 
the songs and cheers. 


A neat white booklet issued under the Bowdoin 
College Bulletin series, but presenting a marked 
difference from the other volumes of that series is 
one just issued by the College. Its name, as 
stated on the title page, is Life at Bowdoin, A 
Pen Picture of the College Life of Bowdoin Un- 
dergraduates. Within its forty-eight pages of 
profusely illustrated material there is an attempt 
to portray Bowdoin life as it really is in a lan- 
guage that can be understood by those who have 
neither seen or known of the College. The book- 
let was edited by the Student Council and written 
by undergraduates, faculty members, and alumni. 
Among the contributors are President Hyde, Pro- 
fessor McConaughy, John C. Minot '96, Laurence 
A. Crosby '13, Cedric R. Crowell '13, James A. 
Norton '13, Clifton O. Page '13, Robert D. Leigh 
'14 and Kenneth A. Robinson '14. Among the 
subjects treated are Student Organizations, So- 
cial Life, Religious Life, Bowdoin Alumni, Bow- 
doin Traditions, Facts and Figures, Diary of a 
Freshman, etc. The book is well printed and has 
a very neat white cover with an embossed Bow- 
doin seal. 

Throughout the booklet is very well written and 
should appeal strongly to the preparatory school 
man who is seeking for information about the 
College, the new undergraduate who wishes to 
know more about its activities, or the average 
reader who desires information about college life. 
The booklet is to be distributed in the same man- 
ner as the catalogue and other bulletins. All the 
alumni will receive copies. 


The first College Sing, held Friday night in 

Cbe Polar Cuo 

The young quarterback was overweighed with 
his new responsibility of directing the field des- 
tinies of the team in The game of the season. 
The reliable pivot man of three seasons' experi- 
ence was hopelessly out of it with a wrenched 
knee. He remembered the old "grad" back in 
York State who had given him his first desire to 
wear the big 'Varsity emblem by recounting his 
own gridiron experiences. Why not go to him, 



and find out how to run the team, what plays to 
use ? So off he went to the home town over Sun- 
day. The old grad met his inquiries seriously. 

''Art," he said, "I can't tell you what to play. 
You know your men better than I do. You know 
the opposing line better than I do. Your coach's 
judgment is reliable and your problems will be 
those of the instant. But just one bit of advice. 
There'll come a bad misplay, a costly fumble. 
Perhaps you handled the ball perfectly, your 
team-mates messed it badly. Don't hesitate one 
instant. Take all the blame yourself, Art, take 
all the blame. You'll have your team dying for 
you by the end of the season." 

Just a little story which the polar cub brought 
home from an old fighter and captain for the 

January instead of in February as formerly. The 
banquet will be held at Young's Hotel. 

Cluo anO Council Meetings 

At a meeting of the Student Council, Tuesday 
noon, Oct. 7, the following standing committees, 
provided for by the Student Council by-laws, were 
appointed by the chairman :

chairman; C. A. Brown '14, A. E. Gray '14. 

At the same meeting F. S. Roberts '15 was 
elected Assistant Calendar Manager and Initia- 
tion night was definitely set at Oct. 14. 


The first monthly dinner of the Bowdoin Club 
of Boston was held at the University Club, 270 
Beacon Street, Friday evening at 6.30. Over 
fifty Bowdoin men were present. Professor 
Nixon delivered the talk of the evening, speaking 
particularly of the prospects for the year at Bow- 

Some one observed, during the evening, that in 
starting this, the twenty-ninth year of its unin- 
terrupted existence, the Bowdoin Club of Boston 
stands without equal for length of life. No col- 
lege or university club in Boston has met regular- 
ly for so long a period of time. 

The dinner Friday night was held on the sec- 
ond Friday of the month rather than the first, as 
usual, because of repairs made recently at the 
University Club. 

At the dinner it was announced that the annual 
Boston Alumni Banquet will be held this year in

'62. — Every year for three days in September, 
Beecher Island, Colorado, is the scene of a cele- 
bration in honor of the brave men who fought 
there a desperate contest against the Cheyennes 
and Arapothoes forty-five years ago. Among 
those killed in the struggle was Lieutenant Fred 
Beecher, the valiant nephew of Henry Ward 
Beecher. The defense of Beecher Island well 
demonstrated the courage of the frontiersmen. 
After they had battled against the overwhelming 
hosts of Indians for three days, the red men set 

to "starving out'' the persevering white men, who 
were finally saved by reenforcements. It is no 
wonder that Colorado has erected a monument on 
the site of Beecher Island and set aside the old 
battle field as a park. 

'64. — After two years of poor health, Myron 
Hovey, of Nashua, N. H., died at his camp on 
Lake Winnepesaukee, N. H., Sept. 22. His re-

where he has been held in high esteem. 

Mr. Hovey was born in Waldoboro, April 19, 
1S39, the son of the late James and Eliza (Wal- 
lace) Hovey of that town. At Bowdoin, he was 
a member of the Chi Psi Fraternity. His wife, 
formerly Miss Minnie Eaton, of Gorham, died 
four years after their marriage in 1869. 

Mr. Hovey was assistant paymaster in the U. S. 
Navy during the last year of the Civil War, and 
from 1880 to 1890 was chief clerk of the pay de- 
partment of the U. S. Navy. He was a member 
of John J. Foster Post of Nashua, and in 1892- 
93 was assistant adjutant general of the depart- 
ment of New Hampshire. Bowdoin has lost an- 
other of her successful sons.

NO. 15 


Bowdoin defeated the heavy team of the Uni- 
versity of Vermont last Saturday afternoon in 
Burlington by a persistent line attack and supe- 
rior punting. During the first two periods of 
play there was only one score, a field goal from 
the twenty-five yard line by Captain Whalen of 
the Vermont eleven. During this half neither 
team was able to make first down consistently. 
The ball was in Vermont's territory a greater part 
of the time. 

Toward the end of the third period the Ver- 
mont line began to weaken and holes were opened 
through which Bowdoin' s shifty backs penetrated 
for substantial gain. By the clever use of a for- 
ward pass, which recovered the ground lost on a 
penalty, Bowdoin placed the ball within striking 
distance of the enemy's goal. Stuart, carrying 
the ball- himself through the line, dodged by the 
secondary defense and went over for Bowdoin's 
first touchdown. Leadbetter failed to kick goal. 
Again in the fourth period Bowdoin gained the 
ball on a blocked punt near Vermont's goal and 
Foster rushed it over the last chalk mark. Lead- 
better kicked the goal. The Bowdoin team was 
getting stronger every minute of play and the 
Vermont players were becoming ragged in their 
defense but time prevented further scoring. 

During the first half the Bowdoin team was ry-t 
up to the form of the previous week allowing sev- 
eral fumbles and missing tackles. In the second 
half, however, the Vermont team was outplayed 
in every department of the game. Alton Lewis 
had a difficult job punting on account of the high 
wind, but gained yardage for Bowdoin by his 
splendid work in this department. 

Bowdoin played 'straight football for the most 
part, trying only two forward passes, both of 
which were successful. Vermont attempted end 
runs and passes but the Bowdoin defense smoth- 
ered their every attempt at open football. They 
failed in all of their five attempts at forward 
passes. Fumbling was frequent, Bowdoin re- 
covering more than Vermont. 

Stuart played a good game at quarter for Bow- 
doin, displaying excellent judgment in his selec- 

tion of plays and carrying the ball himself for 
good gains. Weatherill and Foster were up to 
their usual standard both on defense and offense, 
tackling hard and gaining sure ground through 
the line. The line played well from end to end. 
A. Pratt, taking Fitzgerald's place at end, played 
a creditable game. Fitzgerald suffered physically 
from the long train ride and was unable to start 
the game. He replaced Stuart at quarterback in 
the last period. Floyd was injured early in the 
game and was replaced by LaCasce. 

The good condition of the whole Bowdoin team 
was in evidence Saturday. Although they had 
completed a hard train journey they played 
stronger as the game progressed and were going 
fast as the final whistle blew. 

For Vermont, Capt. Whalen was the mainstay 
in offense and defense. 

A large crowd witnessed the contest.

Next Saturday the Maine series starts with 
Bowdoin playing Colby at Waterville and Maine 
playing Bates at Orono. An attempt to figure 
the outcome of the two battles would be extreme- 
ly difficult, but from comparisons of the teams, 
Bowdoin and Colby appear to be evenly matched, . 
while Maine seems to be stronger than Bates. 



Colby will base her hopes on Lowney and Fra- 
ser, her two backfield stars, and the fact that she 
has a large number of veterans on the team. The 
line that stopped Hudson, however, should have 
little difficulty in piling up the Colby attacks. 
Bowdoin and Colby have not played the same 
teams this year, but the ease with which the Bow- 
doin line proved itself the master of Vermont's 
heavier aggregation speaks well for Bowdoin's 
offense. Although the question of ends is still 
puzzling Coach McCann to a great extent, the 
great improvement shown in the last two games 
gives promise of a wing defense and offense 
hard to be beaten. Lewis's punting has attracted 
attention in each game, and his sturdy toe can be 
relied upon to stave off any danger. It is hoped 
that Lew Brown will be able to play again by 

The scores of the Bowdoin-Colby games in past 
years follow : 

1894. Bowdoin 30, Colby o. 

1895. Bowdoin 5, Colby o; Bowdoin 6, Colby o.

While Bowdoin and Colby are fighting it out at 
Waterville, Maine and Bates will be playing at 
Orono. Although Tufts defeated both Bates and 
Maine by practically the same score, Maine ap- 
pears to have the advantage, for Maine has made 
better scores throughout the season thus far, 
while Bates was scored on last Wednesday by 
Westbrook Seminary.

Balfe, the former Dorchester High runner, was 
not present at the trials, but was considered cer- 
tain of a place in the race with Maine Central In- 
stitute yesterday. 

As Trainer Magee accompanied the football 
team to Burlington, the freshmen were timed over 
the course by Mgr. Koughan. 

The time made in the run was very good when 
the condition of the course is taken into consider- 
ation, and some of the men should make a favor- 
able showing in the trials for the Varsity later in 
the year. 

The team from "Maine Central Institute which 
raced the Freshmen yesterday was captained by 
Orrin Haskell, a brother of Charles Haskell '13. 
The other men were Black, Howes, Jackson, 
Wakefield, and Woodward. This was the first 
Cross-Country team to represent M. C. I. 


The freshmen cross-country squad held their 
trials for positions on the class team at 4 o'clock 
Friday afternoon and the men finished in the fol- 
lowing order: Captain Clarence H. Crosby, 


The Medical School opened yesterday with as 
large an enrollment as last year in spite of the 
new admission requirements. All but one of the 
new men have had at least two years of College 
work. The Anatomy Room, in which such men 
as Dr. Dwight, Dr. Weeks, and Dr. Gerrish have 
taught, has been repaired although the form has 
been unchanged. The faculty has been increased 
to 68 members. 

The following changes have been made in the 
titles of members of the faculty of the Medical 

Henry Marshall Swift, lecturer on neurology, 
becomes professor of neurology. 

Henry William Miller, lecturer on mental dis- 
eases, becomes professor of mental diseases. 

Henry Darenydd Evans, lecturer on public hy- 
giene, becomes professor of public hygiene. 

Manton Copeland, lecturer on embryology and 
histology, becomes professor of embryology and 

Gilbert Molleson Elliott, demonstrator of anat- 
omy becomes assistant professor and demonstra- 
tor of anatomy. 

Richard Dresser Small, instructor in obstetrics, 
becomes assistant professor of obstetrics. 

Thomas Jayne Burrage, instructor in medicine, 
becomes assistant professor of medicine. 

Joseph Blake Drummond, instructor in anat- 
omy, becomes assistant professor of anatomy. 

Alfred Otto Gross, instructor in embryology 
and histology, becomes assistant professor of em- 
bryology and histology. 

Francis Joseph Welch, clinical assistant in 



medicine, becomes instructor in pulmonary dis- 

Harold Josselyn Everett, clinical assistant in 
obstetrics, becomes instructor in obstetrics. 

Roland Banks Moore, clinical assistant in ob- 
stetrics, becomes instructor in pediatrics. 

Ambrose Herbert Weeks, who was elected as- 
sistant professor of gastroenterology, died on 
June 26, less than a week after being elected to 
the position. 

The first game of the State series will be held 
Saturday with Bowdoin opposing Colby, her old 
rival. A special excursion for Bowdoin students 
and followers will be held to Waterville. The 
regular schedule of trains will be run, extra 
coaches being utilized to accommodate the crowd. 
The fare for the excursion will be $1.50 round 
trip. Two years ago a large body of students ac- 
companied the team and witnessed the hard 
fought contest ending in a to score. This is 
the first opportunity that the student body has 
had to show Tom McCann, Bob Weatherill and 
the others who are working on and with the team 
that their work is appreciated. Not only as a 
matter of loyalty, however, should Bowdoin at- 
tend the game en masse. As a contest it will be 
worth going many more miles to see. Those who 
saw Colby's fast backs charge through Bowdoin's 
line for long gains last year on Whittier Field are 
interested to see if the heavy and fast forwards 
of this year's team can prevent their advances. 
Bowdoin-Colby games are always hard games 
and fast games. Get your tickets for Water-

About Organized Cheering 

Comes now a student forward with the propo- 
sition that, after all, this organized cheering is 
unworthy of us as an institution, that its motives 
are not the highest ; that is, its purpose is partly 
to "rattle" opposing teams, that we would be do- 
ing American athletics a benefit by cheering only 
spontaneously and as we felt moved. Then the 
rally speakers are all wrong, and the many 
Orient editorials are all wrong and the many 
athletic captains who urge the student body to do 
more organized cheering, "to cheer themselves 
hoarse for old Bowdoin," are sadly in error. In 
view of our recent lack of enthusiasm for organ- 
ized rooting this statement demands deep consid- 
eration. Is it true, as one student recently re- 
marked, "that we are not a cheering college?" If 
we do not really believe in our present system let 
us frankly admit it and have the office of cheer 
leader abolished. 

The Orient believes that we are ready for no 
such step. We believe that Bowdoin students 

really feel the need of cheering, that in the last 
analysis they want to cheer, for their team, that 
to a large extent their cheering is spontaneous. 
As for its purpose, anyone familiar with the eti- 
quette of the Bowdoin grandstand knows that 
Bowdoin yells are given to encourage the home 
team, not to disconcert the opponents, knows that 
fair play is practised towards opposing teams, 
furthermore knows that the absence of organized 
cheering leads to the evidences of what bad feel- 
ing there is in the Bowdoin grandstand. Who is 
there that has not felt the exhiliration of yelling 
himself hoarse, throwing his cap into the air and 
getting his clothes muddy if need be, in sheer 
self-forgetfulness, in exultation at a well earned 
victory ? At Bowdoin we need not fear too much 
the win spirit. Given that moral balance which • 
will not stoop to unfair means, in the organiza- 
tion, or conduct of teams, and a possession of the 
desire for supremacy carried out in the hardest 
of physical exertion is healthy, and helpful. 
There are those in the student body who have not 
yet caught the spirit of spontaneity which needs 
no urging to make them cheer, who do not feel 
the impulse to get on their feet and sing Bowdoin 
Beata when we are scored on in the first period 
or last period, "just to show 'em we are not beat- 
en." But these are in a minority. We repeat our 
former statement that we need more cheering, 
more organized cheering, more songs and more 
people singing them, rooters that will "yell 
themselves hoarse for Bowdoin." 

Publication of Reports 

We note that one of the athletic manager's re- 
ports which are required by the Athletic Council 
to be published in the Commencement Orient, 
has not yet reached us. This is not a wholly 
new condition. It is very seldom that the report 
of any season in athletics is audited and present- 
ed for publication until that season is almost for- 
gotten. The fault is not often with the managers. 
It very often happens that the books lie in the 
auditor's hands untouched for months. This is a 
positive handicap to the incoming manager. The 
present manager of the track team has been se- 
verely handicapped by not knowing, in midst of 
handicapped by not knowing, now in the midst of 
his season, the balance from the last year's sea- 
son, or the approximate costs of items in the past. 
The Athletic Council should reorganize its sys- 
tem of auditing so as to secure more promptness 
and efficiency. 


The speaker at Sunday Chapel was Rev. Dr. 


David Nelson Beach, President of Bangor Theo- 
logical Seminary. Dr. Beach received the degree 
of A.B. from Yale in 1872, B.D. from the Yale 
Divinity School in 1881, and the degree of D.D. 
from Western Reserve in 1896. He has held pas- 
torates in Congregational Churches in Westerly, 
R.I., Wakefield, Mass., Cambridge, Mass., Min- 
neapolis, and Denver and has been president and 
professor of homiletics at the Bangor Seminary 
since 1903. He has been prominent in good civics 
work in Massachusetts and elsewhere and is the 
author of numerous books.

Editor of the Orient: 

Through your columns I wish to make an ap- 
peal to the undergraduates of the College. The 
Freshman-M.C.I. Race marked the formal open- 
ing of the fall track season. Other races which 
follow are designed to give the men a chance to 
get going before the indoor season begins. Not 
enough men have reported for fall work and if 
we are to have a successful track team in the 
spring, we must show more life in the fall. I am 
at the Athletic Field every afternoon and am 
ready to take anybody in hand and get him going 
in the line he is suited for. You will never feel 
more like running than you do this fall and if you 
get in condition now it will be easy to keep so 
through the winter. If you come out now and 
find out what event you are suited for, you can 
put in your time in the Gym this winter on that 
event and will not be wasting time trying differ- 
ent ones. 

Come out whether you ever ran or not. Some 
of the best track men in the country discovered 
their ability through willingness to try. You 
may be the "find" of the year but you will never 
be discovered unless you find yourself. The track 
coach is not a detective and cannot hunt out 
Ralph Craigs in dark corners but he can tell 
whether a man is a runner or not if the fellow 
gives him a chance. 

Get into the Interclass Meet this week and be 
part of the squad on which Bowdoin's hopes will 
depend in the spring. 

John J. Magee, Track Coach. 


The MacMillan Crocker Land expedition party 
which set sail from Boston, July 4th, has safely 
landed at Etah Harbor from which efforts will be 
made to reach their winter quarters at Cape Sa- 

The expedition, under the auspices of the 
American Geographical Society, and Museum of 
Natural History of New York, is in the charge of 
Donald MacMillan, Bowdoin '98. About the mid- 


die of the month of July, the steamship Diana, 
which was conveying the expedition, was strand- 
ed in Belle Isle Strait and for a time it was feared 
she would be a total loss, but she was safely re- 
moved from her perilous berth and the expedi- 
tion proceeded on its way. 

Neil Fogg, Bowdoin '13, a nephew of Prof. 
MacMillan, who accompanied the expedition to 
Etah Harbor has returned in order to continue 
his studies at Harvard University. 

Word just received from one of the party states 
that the polar bear promised by Explorer Mac- 
Millan for the trophy room in the new gym has 
been shot and weighed in the neighborhood of 
700 pounds. The party is now in yj degrees north 
latitude on the Greenland coast. They have on 
board 30 Eskimos and 100 dogs.

An attractive booklet in white with a gold in- 
scription is "Reminiscences of an 'Old Grad,' " a 
poem read at Commencement last year. It was 
written by D. A. Robinson '73 and is very inter- 
esting to undergraduates in its portrayal of the 
impressions of 40 years ago. 

By the kind thoughtfulness of Gen. Thomas H. 
Hubbard of New York City the Library has lately 
received a contemporary account of the degree of 
doctor of laws on the Marquis de Lafayette by 
Bowdoin College in June 1825 and of the address 
given by President William Allen, D.D., on that 
occasion. This was General Layafette's farewell 
visit to America and it was hoped that he would 
extend his journey eastward to Brunswick and 
possibly to the towns upon the Kennebec. When 
it was learned that he could not do this, the Presi- 
dent with members of the faculty, the trustees 
and overseers, accompanied by a large delegation 
of students went to Portland, then the capital of 
the state, where a most enthusiastic reception was 
given the Revolutionary hero. 

The Marquis replied as follows to President 
Allen's address: — "With the highest sense of re- 
spect and gratitude, I receive the kind visit of 
the trustees and students of Brunswick College, 
the testimonials of their esteem and friendship, 
expressed by you, sir, in so flattering and kind 
terms, and the much valued diploma, with which 
you have been pleased to honor an American vet- 
eran. While I much regret not to be able to offer 
these sentiments at the seat of your so interesting 
institution, I thank you for the opportunity you 
have offered me of a personal acquaintance with 
you, gentlemen of that college, where young 
republicans, the hope of the country, are instruct- 

ed in every literary and scientific branch, and 
above all, in the first of all sciences, the science 
of freedom, equal rights, and self-government; 
and while I join in your liberal wishes for the en- 
franchisement of mankind, while I am highly 
obliged to your kind feelings in my behalf, I beg 
you to accept my warmest good wishes, and most 
grateful acknowledgements."

A short meeting of the Athletic Council was 
held Tuesday evening. It was voted to leave the

Dr. Parker was born in the Stroudwater section 
of Portland, Me., Oct. 8, 1868. An ambitious 
young man, he worked his way through Bowdoin, 
where he was a member of the Theta Delta Chi 
Fraternity. After a period of eight years, during 
which he was physical instructor at the gymnas- 
ium of Brown University, he received his M.D. 
at Dartmouth. Dr. Parker afterwards became 
director of the Brown gymnasium, the position 
which he held until 1903. About 1907 he went to 
Canada to practise, finally settling at Victoria.

Air. Hutchinson was born Oct. 27, 1871, at Au- 
burn, Me., the son of Liberty H. Hutchinson, 
himself a prominent lawyer of Lewiston, Me. 
After his graduation at Bowdoin, he taught for a 
while at Riverview Academy, Poughkeepsie, N. 
Y. He was graduated at the Harvard Law 
School in 1899. He then associated himself with 
his uncle, Freedom Hutchinson, in Boston, with

NO. 16 


One hundred and fifty loyal rooters saw Bow- 
doin outscored on the Alumni Field at Waterville 
last Saturday. Bowdoin was outscored but in no 
respect outclassed. The whole story of the con- 
test may be summed up in three words — too much 
Fraser. The stocky Colby captain won the game 
by his long high punts and sensational end runs. 
Bowdoin's defeat is far from discouraging. The 
light backfield was handicapped by the condition 
of the field, but showed an undoubted ability to 
gain ground. The tendency to fumbling cost us 
more than one chance to score. The Bowdoin de- 
fense was strong, and except for the one time 
when Fraser skirted the ends after a long suc- 
cessful forward pass and finally put the ball over 
the last mark, the Colby backs could not consist- 
ently gain ground. In punting Colby had a big 
advantage on the wet field. Few of Colby's gains 
were made through the line. Most of her yardage 
was the result of long end runs. Our backfield, 
on the other hand, was not able to skirt the ends, 
mainly on account of the condition of the field. 
Our gains were the result of line plunges. That 
Bowdoin could not put the ball over the Colby 
goal in the third and fourth periods was due to 
the stiffening of the opposing line and the failure 
of the Bowdoin forwards to make holes. 

Weatherill and Foster made good gains 
through the line, averaging a good four yards. 
Their clean, hard tackling also ended many a dan- 
gerous end run. Colbath and Lew Brown played 
well both on defense and offense. Brown's work 
on the receiving of punts was one of the features 
of the game. 

The line fought hard and presented a strong 
obstacle in the way of the Colby backs. 

No praise is too high for Captain Fraser. His 
playing was brilliant, sensational and clean 
throughout. To him Colby owes her victory. The 
game was marred by frequent delays on account 
of the breaking of the io yard line. The officiat- 
ing was good and the playing clean and hard. A 
word must be said for the band of loyal Bowdoin 
rooters who sat in the drizzling rain cheering the 
team to the last whistle. 


Bowdoin received the kick. Recovered on the 
io yard line and advanced the ball to 35 yard line. 
Foster made 7 yards through left tackle. Bow- 
doin fumbled and Fraser recovered on the 45 
yard line and punted 30 yards. Colbath made 10 
yards through the line and Lewis punted to 20 
yard line. Lowney made a forward pass to Royal 
for 40 yards. Lowney 5 yards. Fraser 10 yards. 
Fraser 5 yards. Colby fumbled on Bowdoin's 10 
yard line. Lewis punted. Ball run back to 45 
yard line. Lowney 3 yards. Fraser 3 yards. 
Lowney 2 yards. Cauley made 10 yards more and 
Fraser went around the end for a touchdown. 
Colby punted out to 20 yard line. Fraser kicked 
the goal. 


Bowdoin kicked to 5 yard line. Lowney ran 
the ball back through a broken field to Bowdoin's 
45 yard line. Fraser 2 yards. Cauley 1 yard. 
The next two plays were smothered in the line for 
no gain. Lowney attempted a forward pass but 
Foster broke it up. Bowdoin's ball. Weatherill 
made 5 yards. Colbath 8 yards. Weatherill 2 
yards. Foster 8 yards. Foster 2. 


Colby kicked off. Weatherill made 3 yards. 
Bowdoin fumbled and Fraser recovered and punt- 
ed to 10 yard line. Lewis attempted to punt but 
was blocked. Colby recovered the ball on 45 yard 
\ine. Fraser made 8 yards. Lowney no gain. 
Cauley no gain. Fraser punted 40 yards. Lewis 
returned the punt. Lowney made 5 yards. Cau- 
ley 1 yard. Fraser 7. Lowney 5. Colby penal- 
ized 5 yards. Lowney 12 yards. The ball was on 
the 20 yard line directly in front of the goal 
posts. Fraser backed and put a drop kick over. 
Bowdoin kicked off. Crossman ran it- back 15 
yards. Fraser punted to 15 yard line. Weather- 
ill was stopped for no gain. Colbath 6 yards. 
Weatherill 5 yards. Foster 12 yards. It now 
looked as if Bowdoin would score. The ball was 
being carried down the field on every rush. Col- 
bath 4 yards. Stuart 3 yards. Lewis 3. Bow- 
doin then tried a series of plays which were 
smeared before they could start. Colby's line 
held like a rock. Bowdoin lost the ball on Colby's 



2 yard line. Fraser punted to 45 yard line. Lewis 
returned punt. 


Colby kicked off. Foster ran the ball back 30 
yards. Bowdoin was held for three downs and 
forced to punt. Fraser punted back. Brown ran 
the punt back 20 yards. Colbath made 3 yards. 
The ball was again in the shadow of Colby's goal, 
but the Blue line held and the ball was lost. 
Fraser punted 30 yards. Colbath made 2 yards. 
Weatherill 10 yards. Brown no gain. Colby got 
the ball on her own 10 yard line. Fraser punted 
and Colby recovered Brown's fumble. Colby at- 
tempted a forward pass which Bowdoin inter- 
cepted. Colby's ball. Fraser punted. Lewis 
punted. Fraser took the ball for 45 yards, the 
longest run of the game, around right end. Bow- 
doin recovered the ball on a fumble on her 3 yard 
line. Lewis dropped behind the line to punt. The 
ball was passed too low and he was unable to kick. 
Before he could take a step he was nailed by 
Stanwood, for a safety. In the next few minutes 
of play both teams exchanged punts, and tried out

The 12 to o defeat that Bowdoin met at the 
hands of Colby demonstrated that Colby has one 
of the strongest fighting machines that that col- 
lege has ever been able to boast. Although Bow- 

doin was beaten, she died fighting, and has been 
praised by her conquerors for the game battle. A 
victory over both Bates and Maine will still give 
Bowdoin an opportunity at least to tie the cham- 

The only conclusive result that can be safely 
drawn from Saturday's battle is that Bates is 
hopelessly outclassed. Defeated by the score of 
34 to o, Bates at no time showed anything like the 
eleven she had last year, and Maine had no diffi- 
culty in scoring almost at will. 

It is safe to say, however, that Bowdoin, Colby 
and Maine have strong teams. At present, Colby 
and Maine have the lead on Bowdoin through 
having won the opening games, but next Satur- 
day, when Colby meets Maine at Orono, Bowdoin 
is playing Bates at Lewiston, and should come up 
into a tie for second place. If Maine beats Colby 
and Bowdoin beats Maine, there will be a triple 
tie for first honors, providing, of course, that both 
Colby and Bowdoin trim Bates, — a feat that 
should be easy of accomplishment. 

The Bowdoin enthusiasts who made the trip 
from Waterville have nothing but praise for the 
efforts of their team, and all are looking forward 
hopefully to the time when the polar bear shall 
fasten its claws in the big blue elephant. 

The scores of the Bates-Bowdoin games in past 
years follow : 

1889 — Bowdoin 62, Bates 0. 

1890, 1 89 1, 1892 — No game. 

1893 — Bowdoin 54, Bates o. 

1894 — Bowdoin 26, Bates 0. 

1895 — Bowdoin 22, Bates 6. 

1896 — Bowdoin 22, Bates o. 

1897 — Bates 10, Bowdoin 6. 

1898 — Bates 6, Bowdoin o. 

1899 — Bowdoin 16, Bates 6. 

1900 — No game. 

1901 — Bates 11, Bowdoin 0. 

1902 — Bates 16, Bowdoin 0. 

1903 — Bowdoin 11, Bates 5. 

1904 — Bowdoin 12, Bates 6. 

1905 — Bowdoin 6, Bates o. 

1906 — Bates 6, Bowdoin o. 

1907 — Bowdoin 6, Bates 5. 

1908 — Bates 5, Bowdoin o. 

1909 — Bowdoin 6, Bates o. 

1910 — Bowdoin 6, Bates 6. 

191 1 — Bowdoin 11, Bates o. 

1912 — Bates 7, Bowdoin 6. 

Of the 20 games played, Bowdoin has won 12, 
Bates seven, and one has been a tie. Bowdoin 
has scored 272 points and Bates 79. It is only 
creditable to say in favor of Bates, however, that 
the scores of the Lewiston team have been far 
better during recent years. 




Bowdoin meets Bates in the second game of the 
Maine series at Garcelon Field, Lewiston, Satur- 
day. The game will be called at 2.30 p. m. Ar- 
rangements have been made with the Maine Cen- 
tral Railroad for an excursion rate of 60 cents 
round trip, tickets good Saturday only. A train 
leaves Brunswick at 1.33 p. m. and arrives in 
Lewiston at 2.12 p. m., allowing plenty of time to 
reach the field in time for the game. A train 
leaves Lewiston at 5.03 p. m., arriving in Bruns- 
wick at 5.40 p. m. Both these trains will carry 
extra coaches. This means that every Bowdoin 
student and member of the faculty may attend the 
game. The cost, with such arrangements, is 
merely train fare and the admission to the game, 
$1.00. Tickets for the excursion will be on sale 
by the Bowdoin management at the rally Friday 
night. Tickets for the game will probably be on 
sale at that time also. 

Bowdoin has lost its first game in the State 
series, and it is up to the student body to show to 
the team and the general public that their loyalty 
is not shaken. No better, more satisfying and 
sure demonstration can be given than that of 
turning out in a body for this game. Provision 
will be made for the ringing of the chapel bell if 
there are no students left on the campus Saturday 
afternoon. LEWISTON ! ALL ABOARD ! 


Monday, Oct. 20, the Maine Central Institute 
cross-country team defeated the Freshman team 
in a hard race through a steady cold rain. The 
collegians, with a few exceptions, showed the 
lack of faithful training and conscientious prac- 
tise, while their school-boy rivals were in excel- 
lent condition. 

The final score was: M.C.I. 22, 1917, 35. 
Although 1917 failed to capture the race, never- 
theless individual honors came their way, for 
Crosby, their captain, won first place handily, 
outdistancing the nearest competitor with ease. 
Despite the unfavorable conditions under which 
the race was run, the time was fast. The men 
finished in the following order : — 

1st, Crosby (Capt. ) of Bowdoin; 2nd, Wake- 
field, of M.C.I; 3d, Haskell (Capt.) of M.C.I. 
4th, Black of M.C.I.; 5th, Woodward of M.C.I. 
6th, Balfe of Bowboin; 7th, Noyes of Bowdoin 
8th, Howes of M.C.I. ; 9th, Jackson of M.C.I. 
10th, Cormack of Bowdoin; nth, Peacock of 
Bowdoin; 12th, Fenning of Bowdoin. 

ternoon the Freshmen won with 22 points. The 
Seniors were next with 21 points, the Sophomores 
secured 18 points, and the Juniors 16. The men 
finished in the following order: 1, Crosby '17, 
scoring 12 points; 2, Tarbox '14, 11 points; 3, 
Wright '14, 10 points; 4, Irving '16, 9 points; 5, 
Cutler '15, 8 points; 6, Hargraves '16, 7 points; 7, 
Balfe '17, 6 points; 8, Porritt '15, 5 points; 9, 
Noyes '17, 4 points; 10, Coxe '15, 3 points; 11, 
Bacon '15, did not score; 12, Peacock '17, did not 
score; 13, Winter '16, 2 points. 

On account of the rise of the Androscoggin, 
the temporary bridge over the brook near the 
standpipe had been washed away and the runners 
had to swim. The chill of the cold water gave 
several men cramps and put them out of the race. 

Three men in each class scored as the numbers 
entered by the various classes were unequal. 
Crosby '17 won by a wide margin, making a splen- 
did record of two victories for this season. 

In the interclass cross-country race Friday af- 


Tomorrow afternoon at four o'clock the Fall 
Outdoor Meet will be held on Whittier Field. 
Some new material will be seen in action and 
there will be a general limbering up among stars 
that are and stars to be. No meet of this kind 
was held last year but a very successful one was 
held when 1915 were Freshmen. In view of the 
short time in which men have been able to train, 
some of the runs have been cut down. The 
events with the old and new distances will be as 
follows : 

100 yd. dash — cut to 75 yd. dash. 

220 yd. dash — cut to 170 yd. dash. 

120 yd. hurdles — cut to 80 yd. hurdles. 

220 yd. hurdles — cut to 180 yd. hurdles. 

440 yd. dash — cut to 390 yd. dash. 

880 yd. run — cut to 660 yd. run. 

The mile and two mile run will be the regular 
length. The other events will be the high jump, 
broad jump, and pole vault. 

The following men will compete : From 1914, 
Tarbox, Payson, Wright, Neal Tuttle, L. Dona- 
hue; from 1915, Coxe, Bacon, McWilliams, Por- 
ritt, Prescott, Cutler, Livingstone, Keegan, Mc- 
Kenney, Robinson, Richardson; from 1916, C. 
Hall, Fuller, D. White; Irving, Hargraves, Win- 
ter, Hodgkins, Wyman, Boardman; from 1917, 
Sampson, Cormack, Peacock, Chapman, H. White, 
Keene, Balfe, Crosby, Langs, Noyes, Fenning, 

Among the new men the student body will do 
well to watch the work of Keene '17 in the high 
jump, Sampson '17 in the pole vault, Crosby '17 
in the long distances, and Balfe '17 in the middle

Where We Stand 

Each recurring football season and the varying 
fortunes of 'the team bring up sooner or later the 
questions of the extent of student support, the 
measure of student loyalty, the presence of the 
old Bowdoin spirit. How is it this year? During 
the early season games the student body seemed 
to be vitally interested in the upbuilding of a 
team. A large squad turned out and a large squad 
stayed out, so that the present number is the larg- 
est for years. The cheering was not all that it 
might be at the early games, but this was due to 
the lack of practice. With the beginning of the 
Maine series the first test came. On a rainy 
night practically the whole student body turned 
out for the Colby rally. With the undoubted as- 
surance of a day of drenching rain a hundred and 
fifty loyal rooters accompanied the team to Wa- 
terville and for two hours sat in the downpour 
and cheered the hard-fighting, losing Bowdoin 
team to the last ditch. And now that the first 

game of the series is lost the general confidence 
in the team is not shaken. Students are looking 
forward with stout hearts to the games to come. 
Surely we have no cause to complain as yet. 

There will be a rally Friday night and an easily 
accessible game Saturday. It will be a game be- 
tween old rivals, between two clever, fast elevens, 
fighting from whistle to whistle. There will be 
an excursion with its good spirit and fellowship. 
And we feel confident that the student body will 
not be found wanting, that they will support the 
team, as in the past, by their presence and their 
lungs and their loyalty. 


The first rally of the year was held last Friday 
night in Memorial Hall. A large crowd was out 
and enthusiasm ran high. The band was out 
and, with Dick Fuller as cheer leader, there was 
much cheering between the speeches and songs. 
Dean Sills was the first speaker of the evening. 
Besides speaking on the game he also discussed 
the subject on cooperation in getting men to Bow- 
doin, suggesting a revival of the Lunt plan. 
"Sum" Mountfort '14, Professor Files, Trainer 
Magee and Professor McConaughy were the 
other speakers. All were well received, their 
prophecies of victory being especially pleasing to 
those present. Leigh '14 presided over the meet- 


Manager Koughan '15 has announced the fol- 
lowing tentative schedule for the track team : 

Feb. 7. — Boston Athletic Association meet at 

Feb. 27. — Bowdoin interscholastic indoor meet. 

Mar. 20. — Bowdoin indoor interclass meet. 

April 25. — Pending with Tech at Brunswick. 

May 2. — Bowdoin vs. Trinity at Hartford. 

May 16. — Maine intercollegiate at Lewiston. 

May 23. — New England intercollegiate. 

May 30. — Bowdoin interscholastic outdoor meet 
at Brunswick. 

On Nov. 9th, Dan Crawford will lecture under 
the auspices of the Bowdoin Christian Associa- 
tion. The lecture is illustrated with colored views 
of parts of Africa never seen by any other white 

Twenty-three years ago Crawford was cap- 
tured by African cannibals and made their King. 
For twenty years he wore no civilized clothing 
and for ten years heard no word of English. He 
translated the Bible into several languages, helped 



the people rebuild their towns, and taught them 
Christian ways of living. On his return to Eng- 
land some months ago, he was practically un- 
known, but became famous quickly through his 
book, "Thinking Black." He lectured in England 
and has come to America for a short tour. Bow- 
doin is extremely fortunate in being one of the 
few places in Maine where he is to lecture, be- 
cause, as a missionary and explorer, Crawford is 
the greatest since Livingston. 

The Bowdoin Christian Association partially 
supports each year a missionary in India, Mr. 
Hiwale, a graduate of Bowdoin. 


The Debating Council committee in charge of 
the affair has set the date for the annual Fresh- 
man-Sophomore debate as Friday evening, Dec. 
12. The debate will be held in the Debating Room 
in Hubbard Hall at 8.00 p. m. The question to be 
debated is, Resolved : That the commission form 
of government is the one best suited to American 
cities. Each class will be represented by three prin* 
cipals and an alternate. The trials for positions 
will be held on Thursday and Friday, Nov. 13 
and 14, at 4.00 p. m. Each candidate will be al- 
lowed to speak for five minutes on any phase of 
the subject. Those who wish to compete must 
hand their names before Wednesday night, Nov. 
12, to any member of the committee in charge : 
Bacon '15, Hyler '15 and McKenney '15. The 
judges of the trials will be men from English 6. 


Two sings were held last week in preparation 
for the Colby game, one on Wednesday, at the 
grand stand and the other in Memorial Hall on 
Thursday. All the songs and cheers were re- 
hearsed, with Professor Wass leading the sing- 
ing. The most important feature was the in- 
vention of a new cheer, which is as follows : 
B-O-W rah-rah-rah, D-O-I-N rah-rah-rah, B-O- 
W-D-O-I-N rah-rah-rah, Bowdoin, Bowdion, 
Bowdoin. This cheer is begun slowly, gradually 
increasing in speed and ending up with three 
sharp Bowdoin's. 


The Rhodes Scholarship Examinations were 
held at Augusta October fourteenth and fifteenth. 
Bowdoin was represented by R. P. Coffin '15, who 
took all the examinations, and by Gray '14 and 
Tuttle '14, who took the Greek examinations, hav- 
ing taken the others last year. Bowdoin is now 
represented at Oxford by L. A. Crosby '13, who 
was appointed last year. 


In the Town Hall at eight o'clock tonight, un- 
der the auspices of the Saturday Club, there will 
be a reading by Joseph C. Lincoln, the author of 
Cap'n Eri, The Postmaster, Cape Cod Ballads, 

The Saturday Club has an exceptionally inter- 
esting program for the current year. Among 
the other entertainments which should prove of 
special interest to Bowdoin students are the fol- 
lowing: __^ 

Nov. 17 — Concert in Memorial Hall. '"*:!*, 

Jan. 10 — Memorial Hall. An illustrated lecture" 
on Roman Africa by Adeline Belle Hawes, M.A., 
Wellesley College. 

Feb. 16 — The Ben Greet Players, presenting "A 
Comedy of Errors." 

Feb. 28 — Unitarian Church. Illustrated lec- 
ture — The Birds of the Bermuda Islands, by Pro- 
fessor Alfred Otto Gross, Ph.D. 

Mar. 13 — Memorial Hall. Lecture — The Tar- 
iff and the Ultimate Consumer, by Henry Crosby 
Emery, Ph.D., LL.D. 


At this date, while there is still time to alter 
plans it may not be amiss to make a few an- 
nouncements concerning the Maine game to be 
played here a week from Saturday. In the past 
the Bowdoin cheering section has been in the 
grandstand and has suffered considerably be- 
cause of the lack of compactness. Maine will be 
present, this year, as usual, with a large rooting 
section. The bleachers located directly in front 
of the Hubbard grandstand, are roomy, give an 
excellent view of the field and are preferred by 
many to grandstand seats. After considerable 
consultation with students it has been thought best 
for all concerned to locate the Bowdoin cheering 
section in these seats. The section could thus be 
more compact, the cheering would carry better 
and the men would get as good a view of the 
game as in the grandstand seats. This arrange- 
ment, however, is not final and the manager 
would be glad to talk with any student about the 
matter and get the student sentiment. 

Seats for the game will be on sale next Mon- 
day afternoon in the Manager's Room in the New 
Gymnasium. Each student will be limited to the 
purchase of six seats. 

As large a number of students as possible 
should make plans to occupy the cheering section. 
Friends and relatives can be located in the 
grandstand. Every Bowdoin man's place on the 
afternoon of the Maine game is with the Bowdoin 
rooters or on the field in uniform. 

Robert D. Leigh, Manager. 



CIuo ano Council Meetings 

The Maine Central Institute Club was formed 
last week with ten members. At the first meeting 
the following officers were elected : President, 
Ivan Merrill '15; Secretary and Treasurer, Ire- 
land '16. 

At a recent meeting of the Debating Council, 
debating prospects were discussed for the next 
year and committees for the ensuing year formed. 
This year Bowdoin has a contract to debate both 
Hamilton and Wesleyan. The committees are as 
follows : Committee on Interclass Debating, Ba- 
con '15, chairman, McKenney '15, Hyler '15; 
Committee on Interscholastic Debating, Bickford 
'14, chairman, Marr '14, Talbot '15. 

At the recent meeting of the Bowdoin Publish- 
ing Company, the constitution was discussed with 
the idea of changing parts of it. The constitution 
with the revised parts will be submitted for ap- 
proval to the editorial boards of Orient and

"The New York Times Index" is one of the 
books in the library which is not consulted by the 
students nearly as frequently as it should. By 
means of this book the college has adopted a new 
method that is an important step toward an ideal 
reference system. Up to this year the library has 
kept on file copies of The New York Tribune. 
But from now on The New York Times, one of 
the leading Metropolitan newspapers, will take 
its place. 

This change has been brought about by the pub- 
lication of "The New York Times Index." The 
Index is issued quarterly and contains an exhaus- 
tive index of the reading matter in the Times for 
the three months of time covered. Under each 
main topic are listed the subdivisions and subjects 
treated under these heads, with the date of the 
paper containing the article, together with the 
page and column. By means of the Index the 
student has access to complete and accurate con- 
temporary accounts of almost any subject at 

The Index is accurate, complete, and exhaus- 
tive in its scope. The value of contemporary data 
is evident, and is much more complete and de- 
tailed than the ordinary text-book information. 
The system also has the advantage of providing 
up-to-date reading matter on topics of the day, 
that can be obtained in no other way. 

The Index is being received enthusiastically 
wherever it is introduced and its merit is at- 
tested to by librarians in colleges everywhere. 

John A. Lowe, Librarian of the Williams Col- 
lege Library, says : — "A careful examination of 
the first number of "The New York Times In- 
dex" manifests clearly its inestimable value in 
University and College libraries. The biblio- 
graphic arrangement is excellent. The classifi- 
cation is clear. The subject headings are well- 
divided, minute and distinct. The cross-refer- 
ences and generous use of sub-heads brings out 
much additional material. The notation used al- 
lows data to be given in a compact form." 

The Index is to be found at the Library, and 
copies of the Times are placed in the newspaper 
room daily. The Library will have the Times 
bound quarterly and back numbers of past years 
will be reserved in separate volumes. Students 
who desire complete and accurate information on 
almost any subject will do well to consult the In- 
dex and the files of The Nezu York Times.

has been in charge of J. Pluvius. It is the opinion 
of the student body that the campus should now 
be set out to dry. 

A number of fellows saw George Cohan in

Warnings are notices sent out to all freshmen 
who have not made a grade of 60 or better in any 
of their courses. A warning in one course may 
be worked off, but a major warning or a notice 
•of failure in two or more subjects is sufficient 
cause for probation. 

Manager Koughan took a number of cross- 
country men to Waterville Saturday morning in

team will be held Friday, Oct. 31. The men taken 
to Waterville were Tarbox '14, Wright '14, Har-

director of the expedition for oriental exploration 
sent by the University of Chicago to Babylonia. 
This "oldest book" in the library is of clay, and as 
it is written on the side as well as on the front and

'74. — News has been received of the death of 
Willard R. Hemmenway at St. Paul, Minn., on 
Sept. 23. After graduation he was for two years 
principal of Greely Institute at Cumberland, Me. 
He then taught for a year at Minneapolis, Minn., 
and began in 1879 his long career at La Crosse, 
Wis., where he was principal of the high school 
for nearly thirty years. The closing years of his 
life were ones of ill health spent near St. Paul. 

'89. — The recently published annual report of 
Emerson S. Adams, A.M., Superintendent of 
Schools at Central Falls, R. I., shows that he has 
under his charge ninety-five teachers and nearly 
two thousand pupils. 

'03. — Farnsworth G. Marshall has been chosen 
superintendent of schools at Maiden, Mass., fol- 
lowing his four years' service in the same posi- 
tion in Augusta. There were 35 candidates for 
the position. 

Mr. Marshall was born in Upper Fairmont, 
Md., Sept. 25, 1875. He was principal of the 
High School at Old Town after his graduation 
from Bowdoin and then became principal of the 
High School at Augusta, being made superinten- 
dent in 1910. During his college course, he at- 
tained high marks in his studies and was promi- 
nent as a debater. 

'03. — Dr. Seldon O. Martin is Instructor in 
Commercial Organization and Director of the 
Bureau of Business Research at Harvard Univer- 
sity. It was under his immediate charge that, in 
191 1, the Bureau made a standardization of meth- 
ods in buying, selling, stock-keeping and account- 
ing in the retail shoe store. 

'12. — Both the faculty and the students have 
expressed admiration for John L. Hurley's manly 
act and sympathy with him in his injuries. The 
training which the former captain received on the 
football team surely stood him in good stead, by 
enabling him to act quickly and courageously in 
the attempt to save Samuel Peters from death in 
the live wire accident at Maiden. 

The College is pleased to learn by the latest re- 
port that, although his right hand was severely 
burned, no amputation whatever will be neces- 
sary. Hurley is rapidly recovering. 




NO. 17 


At the beginning of the second half the Bow- 
doin team came on the field with a score of 7-0 
against them. The moment the ball was put into 
play it was seen that the old Bowdoin spirit — that 
spirit which has won so many games in the last 
few minutes of scrimmage — was dominating the 
whole team. Down the field they went, rush af- 
ter rush, persistent, irresistible. Weatherill and 
Foster smashed through Bates' line for gains of 
5 to 20 yards at every rush. At last the ball was 
on the 20 yard line. Captain Weatherill shot 
through tackle for a touchdown. Leadbetter 
kicked the goal, and the score was tied. But the 
Polar Bear was not yet satiated. The smashing 
attack went on, until near the close of the fourth 
period, with the ball on Bates' 20 yard line, La- 
Casce, the dependable, was sent in. Dropping 
back he coolly booted the ball in a perfect kick 
over the bar, and the game was won. 

The whole game was a splendid exhibition of 
good generalship, hard fighting and dogged per- 
sistency. The advantage shifted constantly and 
served to keep the cheering sections on nerves' 

No praise can be too high for the splendid work 
done by Captain Weatherill. Not only did he in- 
still a spirit of win-or-die in his team but he set 
them the example of a whirlwind attack, and a 
rock-like defense. 

To "Herb" Foster, also, belongs much of the 
glory of victory. His line plunging was phenom- 
enal; his tackling hard and clean. His 20 yard 
plunge through the line was one of the features 
of the game. And to LaCasce, cool-headed, 
steady, and dependable, we owe much for our vic- 
tory ! 

The game was marred by the great number of 
penalties imposed on both teams for holding. But 
this" may be excused in the light of the fierceness 
of the game.

the ball was on Bates' 30 yard line. 


Both winners in Maine state games Saturday 
demonstrated their ability in the second half. 
With Bates ahead by the score of seven to noth- 
ing, Bowdoin won the game in the last half by 
making a touchdown and a goal from the field. 
Played almost to a standstill in the first two pe- 
riods, Maine defeated Colby in the second half by 
making a goal from the field, — the only score of 
the contest. 

Conservative prophecies only can be made 
about the Bowdoin-Maine game at Brunswick 
next Saturday, but .the general opinion is that the 
team that can put up the stronger battle in the 
second half will win out. 

Throughout the season both Bowdoin and 
Maine have offered splendid exhibitions of "come 
back" after their opponents have gained ground 
almost at will. Maine, in her game with Yale, 
showed strength to hold a supposedly superior 
even to the last whistle, and Bowdoin, in the Trin- 
ity game, showed ability to hold even the near-all- 
American Hudson. 

That Bowdoin can rely on a possible goal from 

the field was proved Saturday. Although the first 
two tries went wide, the third kick from place- 
ment missed only by inches, while the fourth at- 
tempt, LaCasce's drop kick, could not have been 
better. Maine also has a star drop kicker in the 
person of Ruffner, who made Maine's only tally 
against Colby. 

Maine has the technical advantage through her 
defeat of Colby after Colby won from Bowdoin, 
but it must be remembered that a bad first quarter 
was responsible for ten of Colby's 12 points, and 
after that neither side was able to advance with 
any degree of certainty. 

But those who think Maine has the victory se- 
cure are doomed to disappointment. With Satur- 
day's victory fresh at hand, Bowdoin's chances of 
the game are more than even. Coached to the 
height of perfection by Tom McCann and kept in 
the pink of condition by Trainer Magee, the 
Bowdoin team should be able to keep Maine's de- 
fense from crossing the goal line, and should be 
able to make at least one score against the Orono 

Thus far Bowdoin and Maine have met in 17 
games of football. Bowdoin has won 10 of these 
games and Maine 6. The 1910 game was a score- 
less tie. Here are the scores of all the games :—

Sophomores secured 24 points, the Seniors 12 and 
the Juniors 9. Wyman '16 and Crosby '17 were 
tied for individual honors with ten points each.

Ready Bowdoin! 

In anticipation of the big game of the year as 
far as Bowdoin and Brunswick are concerned, 
this issue is given over to the football team. All 
indications point to a record breaking crowd for 
the big contest on Whittier Field and everything 
will be in readiness for the whistle at 2.30. And 
Bowdoin will be ready. For eight weeks Tom 
McCann, Capt. Weatherill and the faithful white- 
stockinged squad have been working long and late 
for this crucial contest. For eight weeks the stu- 
dent body to a man has been waiting too for the 
Maine game. If Bowdoin loses there will be no 
excuses to offer. If Bowdoin wins— well, you 
will hear about it. Comparative scores elsewhere 
might lead to a gloom cloud on the horizon, but 
on the campus this fall there is a deep and abiding 
confidence in those eleven trusty warriors and 
their quiet coach. The student body will be there 
Saturday cheering the team to the last second of 
play. We're behind you, team ! 

Masque and Gown Starts 

While student interest is bent on the football 
team and its prospects, another student activity of 
a different nature is this week making its annual 
beginning. The Masque and Gown will start on 
the work for its Ivy play with the reading Wed- 
nesday evening. The work of the club will this 
year be watched with great interest by those who 
saw what a rapid advance was made in Bowdoin 
dramatics last season. The opportunity for par- 
ticipation in this branch of activity is good, as 
there are very few experienced men in the student 
body. The appeal to the man who is an upper- 
classman and who has not yet identified himself 
with any student activity should be strong. Only 
a large number of competitors will ensure a suc- 
cessful season. Anyone is eligible to turn out. 
We are pleased to note that the club will for the 
first time in a number of years take several trips 
with their plays. Such a feature should prove an 
inducement to candidates.

Announcement was made recently by the Exec- 
utive Committee of the Masque and Gown, Bow- 
doin's dramatic club, that "The Marriage of Kit- 
ty" has been chosen for the road production and 
Ivy play. This is a bright comedy which was 
written ten years ago especially for Marie Tem- 
pest and was produced first in London. 

Announcement has also been made that the 
Commencement play will be Shakespeare's 
"Twelfth Night." Trials for this production will 
be. held some time this month. All students de- 
siring to try for parts in this production are ad- 
vised to read over the play and determine their 
choice of a part. Professor Elliott will cooperate 
in the direction and production of this play. 

The membership of the Masque and Gown is 
composed of those elected by the club from the 
casts of its two productions. The present mem- 
bership is as follows: Leigh '14, president; Cal- 
lahan '14, manager; Hall '15, assistant manager; 
Head '16, Elwell '15, P. Donahue '14, Bacon '15, 
P. White '14. Russell '14, Buell '14, Cole '14, 
Evans '15, MacDonald '15. Honorary members,

Thirty-two men will answer the starter's pistol 
at Waterville tomorrow in the second annual 
cross-country race between the four Maine col- 
leges. The Bowdoin trials were Friday afternoon 
and although no time was given out, it is under- 
stood that the leaders finished in close to record 
time. The runners who made the team finished 
in the following order: Crosby '17, Captain Tar- 
box '14, Wright '14, Irving '16, Hargraves '16, 
Noyes '17, Porritt '15, Cutler '15. Balfe '17'is al- 
ternate. All the men finished in good condition. 

Through her victory over Dartmouth, Maine 
appears to have the call in tomorrow's race. In 
Wenz, Colby has a man who has been picked by 
sporting writers as first place winner. Bowdoin's 
hill and dale men have improved wonderfully dur- 
ing the past few weeks and Coach Magee's 

charges should render a good account of them- 

The officials for the meet follow : —

Herbert C. Bell of Bowdoin, Dr. John Hedman of 
Colby and L. R. Sullivan of Bates.

Speaking Contest in January : — Elwyn C. Gage, 
Alfred E. Gray, Robert D. Leigh, Alfred W. 
Newcombe, Kenneth A. Robinson, Richard E. 


The Sophomores and Freshmen held class elec- 
tions last Friday. J. B. Moulton was elected cap- 
tain, and A. B. Haggett, Jr., manager, of the 
Sophomore football team. The Freshmen chose 
for class treasurer S. H. Colton, Jr., for football 
captain F. J. Corbett, and for football manager, 
N. U. McConaughy. 

The teams will start practicing immediately for 
the annual Freshman-Sophomore football game, 
which will be played the Saturday before Thanks- 


The following men have been retained for the 
mandolin club: Barton '14, leader; Stratton '16, 
Dalrymple '17, True '17, Standish '14, Demmons 
'15, Lappin '15, Chase '16, Cruff '16, Hall '15,

and Kelley '16. Another cut will be made before 
the final selection. 


Tomorrow evening at 8.15 in the Delta Kappa 
Epsilon House Mrs. Arthur F. Brown, the direc- 
tor of the Masque and Gown will give a reading 
of "The Marriage of Kitty," which is to be pro- 
duced this winter by the college dramatic organi- 
zation. The purpose of this reading is to familiar- 
ize the candidates for parts with the various 
characters in the play, so that they may more in- 
telligently choose the part for which they will try 
•out. Any student in college is invited by the club 
to attend. At this meeting the time and details 
for the trials will be announced. 

Manager Callahan announces that this play will 
be used as the club's vehicle in several produc- 
tions in Maine cities and towns. There will be 
performances in Portland, Bath, Bangor, Augus- 
ta and probably Rockland. Trips into New 
Hampshire may also be taken. This play will be 
used also for the annual Ivy production. 

To spend 23 years in the heart of Africa, to be 
condemned to death by native cannibals and later 
made their king, to hold services over the spot 
where the heart of the explorer Livingston was 
buried, to translate the Bible into a language hav- 
ing 32 tenses and 19 genders— these are experi- 
ences which make Dan Crawford a unique man. 

Mr. Crawford will speak next Sunday at the 
morning service and at Sunday School at the 
Church on the Hill, at the College Chapel ser- 
vices, and will give his illustrated lecture in the 
evening in Memorial Hall. 


A rally was held in Memorial Hall last Friday 
evening, before the Bates game. Callahan '14 
presided and opened the meeting with announce- 
ments about trains and tickets for the Lewiston 
trip. The first speaker was Professor Hutchins, 
who talked of the age and universality of sport 
and concluded by urging the team to go in and 
finish its work, for every Bowdoin man was ex- 
pecting it to do its utmost. 

After "Brosie" Burns had prophesied victory, 
Professor Nixon was introduced. He praised 
vigorous cheering and spoke of the sort of spirit 
which we should have toward these games. The 
last speaker was Col. E. C. Plummer '87, who told 
of the power back of Bowdoin championship 
crews and teams in the past and said that the 
same qualities that enable us to score victories 

here will bring us success in the game of life. 

There was a good attendance and much enthus- 
iasm. The meeting closed with cheers and "Bow- 
doin Beata." 

The second round of the Fall Tennis Tourna- 
ment has been partially played off and the fol- 
lowing results were obtained: Card '15 beat 
Nason '14, 8-6, 8-6; Greely '16 beat Ogle '17, 6-0, 
6-2; Flynt '17 beat Woodman '16, 6-3, 6-3; Ladd 
'16 beat Coffin '15, 6-2, 6-1. 

Cluo anO Council Meetings 

A meeting of the Deutscher Verein was held 
at Professor Ham's house on Wednesday, Oct. 29. 
The feature of the meeting was the address of 
Professor Evanius, the Prussian Exchange 
teacher at Phillips Exeter Academy. Prof. Evan- 
ius spoke in German and gave a very interesting 
talk on Kaiser Wilhelm. 

After the talk the Verein elected officers for 
the current year. The result of the election was 
as follows: Vorstand, Neal Tuttle '14; Schrift- 
wart, F. T. Garland '14; Kassenwart, M. W. 
Hamblen '14. The meeting closed with the sing- 
ing of German student songs. 

The Gibbons Club met for its first meeting last 
Tuesday evening, but as all the members were 
not informed of the meeting, very few were pres- 
ent and no business was accomplished. The next 
meeting will be held this evening at the Theta 
Delta Chi House.

The library has recently obtained two books of 
unusual nature and interest. One is unique in 
that there are probably only one or two other vol- 
umes of its kind in existence. With the exception 
of one in the Boston Public Library, there is un- 
doubtedly no book like it. 

This little book bears this rather long and 
quaint inscription on the title page : "Unfruitful 
Hearers detected and warned ; or a Discourse 
wherein the Danger of, and by, Unprofitable 
Hearing is laid open and cautioned against." The 
book was first published in 1696, but there are 
probably no copies of this earlier edition left to- 
day. The second edition was . issued May 10, 
1754. This curiously printed volume is interest- 
ing more as a curio than as a work of recognized 
and established literary merit. The printing is 
the old style, the s's closely resembling our f's, 
and all the nouns being capitalized. 

The other book is one of the recent gifts to the 
library. It is a finely printed edition of the Greek 


J 39 

testament, published at Amsterdam in 171 1 and 
presented by General Ellis Spear of Washington, 
D. C, class of 1858. The volume is made doubly 
interesting and valuable from its previous owners. 
Alpheus S. Packard, D.D., the instructor of 
Henry W. Longfellow and Nathaniel Hawthorne, 
once owned the book. Professor Samuel Adams 
of Illinois College also owned the book at one 
time, as did the recently deceased Robert S. Pack- 
ard, A.M., of Washington, D. C.

alumni Department 

The request was made last year that the alumni 
of the College send in occasional contributions to 
their department of the Orient. Many of them 
have accordingly given us interesting and vital 
material, which we have ever been pleased to pub- 
lish. But we do not believe that the alumni, as a 
whole, have given us anything like the amount of 
news which they are in a position to give. We 
usually have to procure our news by more indi- 
rect means. Now, Bowdoin men are active and 
prosperous throughout the country. A record of 
these activities can find no place more appropri- 
ate and more hospitable than the columns of the 
Orient. The undergraduates always welcome 
any news from the alumni. They are interested 
in the more successful and in the less successful. 
And, furthermore, the alumni are interested in 
the deeds of one another. They are to realize, we 
hope, that this is their own department. Now, a 
little more cooperation ! 

'94. — At a recent meeting, the directors of the 
Canal National Bank of Portland elected William 
W. Thomas to the position of president to suc- 
ceed his father, Elias Thomas, who died about 
two weeks ago. Born April 18, 1873, he is thus at 
the age of forty one of the younger bank presi- 
dents of New England. He was the third William 
Widgery Thomas to be graduated at Bowdoin. 
He was graduated at the law department of Le- 
land Stanford, Jr., University in 1897, and be- 
came a member of the Cumberland Bar in 1898. 
For many years he had been an associate of his 
father's in the real estate and timberland busi- 
ness. He has also been a director of the Canal 
National Bank for some years, being therefore 
well qualified to undertake his new duties.

Miss Marjorie Brown of Belmont was the bride- 
maid. Thomas C. White of Lewiston, a class- 
mate of the bridegroom, was the best man. The 
ushers were Walter M. Sanborn '05 of Augusta, 
Francis H. Kendall of Belmont, and two brothers 
of the bride, both of Belmont. The wedding 
ceremony was attended by many of the friends* 
It was followed by a reception at the bride's 
home, 45 Common St., Belmont. After a wedding 
trip of two weeks, Mr. and Mrs. Connors will re- 
side at 45 Highland Avenue, Bangor, where they 
will be at home after January 1st. Mr. Connors 
is one of the prominent younger members of the 
Penobscot County Bar, being a successful prac- 
tising attorney in Bangor. He is the son of Mr. 
and Mrs. William Connors. He received his de- 
gree from the University of Maine College of 
Law. At Bowdoin he was a member of the Alpha

it was voted to hold a grand celebration in the 
shape of fireworks and band concerts Tuesday 
night in front of the Alexander house, which will 
be the headquarters of the class during the week. 
The Brunswick Band will furnish the music. 
Other arrangements were talked over and the 
meeting adjourned. The committee of arrange-

NO. 18 

BOWDOIN, 0; MAINE, 9— Nov. 8 

Maine beat Bowdoin last Saturday by a score 
of 9-0, thus winning a clear title to the State 

Up to the third period the game was one of the 
most closely contested ever seen in this state. 
Both teams fought every inch of ground with 
every grain of spirit in them. At the end of the 
first half the supporters of both colleges were pre- 
dicting a scoreless tie. Then came that disas- 
trous third period. After Bowdoin had held 
Maine for downs on the 4 yard line and had 
punted out of danger, Brown fumbled Cobb's 
return punt and Donahue fell on the ball for a 
touchdown. In the fourth period Maine made her 
only earned score by a drop kick from the 15 yard 
line. The score of 9-0 can in no way express the 
closeness and fierceness of the game. Maine won 
by her ability to follow the ball and by her heavy 
shifty line. 

In. praising the Bowdoin players one is at a loss, 
for we all feel that every man played the greatest 
game of his life. Time and again Maine sent her 
backs crashing against the stone wall of Bow- 
doin's line for no gain. From end to end the line 
plaved as one man. and with a fierceness and ag_ 
gressiveness that characterized the whole game. 
Leadbetter. Brewster and Burns were the pillars 
of strength. Captain Weatherill, playing his last 
state championship game for old Bowdoin, by his 
personal example of fight and pluck inspired his 
team to a frenzied attack and defense. 

An enumeration of the personal prowess of 
each man is superfluous for those who saw the 
wonderful game. Bowdoin lost. Rightfully we 
have nothing more to say, yet there is not a sup- 
porter of the White who in his heart does not feel 
that the fickle goddess Fortune held the destiny of 
the game. 


Maine won the toss and chose to defend the 
east goal and to receive the kick. Stuart kicked 
off to & Cobb on the 12 yard line. Cobb ran the ball 
back to the 36 yard line where he was stopped by 
Weatherill. Cobb dropped back for a punt but the 
pass went over his head and rolled to the 12 yard 
line. Brewster got the tackle. Martin made 1 
yard through the right side of the line. Cobb 
punted 53 yards to Stuart, who was nailed in his 

tracks. Bowdoin gained two yards in two rushes 
through the center of the line. Lewis punted 15 
yards and Bowdoin recovered the ball on a fum- 
ble. Fitzgerald made 2 yards through left tackle. 
Weatherill made 2 yards on a fake pass through 
left tackle. Bowdoin was tackled for a loss of 1 
yard. Lewis punted to the 15 yard line to Ruff- 
ner, who ran the ball back 5 yards. Martin made 

5 yards through left tackle. Cobb dropped back 
into punt formation and took the ball around left 
end for 15 yards. Tackled by Stuart. Donahue 
and Martin made 5 yards. Cobb punted 45 yards, 
to Stuart, who ran the ball back 5 yards before 
Ruffner and Murray got him. Fitzgerald made I 
yard through right tackle. Weatherill fumbled 
and Leadbetter recovered for a 3 yard loss. Lewis 
punted 30 yards to Cobb who was tackled by A. 
Pratt. Cobb fumbled and Bowdoin recovered. 
Lewis punted 35 yards to Cobb, who returned the 
punt to Stuart. Sawyer got the tackle after the 
ball had been advanced 15 yards. Fitzgerald made 

6 yards in two rushes through right tackle. Col- 
bath no gain. Lewis punted to Cobb on the 15 
vard line. Donahue made I yard through center. 
Purington 14 yards around right end on a fake 
kick. Cobb punted to Stuart on the 25 yard line. 
Colbath no gain through center. Weatherill made 
4 yards in two rushes through the right side of 
the line. Lewis punted to Cobb on Bowdoin's 45 
yard line. Cobb punted 35 yards to Stuart. Bow- 
doin made 5 yards through rushes. Lewis punted 
to Ruffner. End of period. Ball on Bowdoin's 
37 yard line. 


Donahue, Martin and Purington opened the pe- 
riod, and by a gain of 12 yards placed the ball on 
Bowdoin's 24 yard line. Ruffner then tried for a 
field goal from the 31 yard line but the try failed. 
LaCasce made 5 yards through right tackle, and 
after an unsuccessful attempt by Foster, Weath- 
erill made 8 through right tackle. Herb Foster, 
on three rushes made 7 yards, but on Weatherill's 
unsuccessful attempt to make first down Maine 
got the ball on her 44 yard line. Maine then drove 
Bowdoin back to her 28 yard line, where Bowdoin 
intercepted Cobb's forward pass, and LaCasce 
made 6 around the left end. After Foster had 
made 1 yard, Bowdoin was penalized 15 yards for 
holding. Murray then drove Lewis back 3 yards 



and the latter punted, putting the ball on Maine's 
43 yard line. Cobb then kicked 27 yards and 
Weatherill, after making 6 through right tackle, 
made 17 around right end. 

Bowdoin, in the next line up, was penalized 15 
yards, and Lewis punted 40 yards to Cobb. Bow- 
aoin held here, and Cobb punted for 20 yards. 
Foster, Weatherill and Brown then added 13 
yards and the half closed with Bowdoin in pos- 
session of the ball on Maine's 36 yard line. 


Brown received Gulliver's kick off and ran 11 
yards when he was downed by Martin. After 
unsuccessful rushes by Foster and LaCasce, 
Lewis punted to Cobb. After rushing the ball for 
a yard, Maine kicked 35 yards to Brown, whom 
Purington immediately downed. Lewis then 
kicked a spiral which sailed 45 yards before being 
received by Cobb. Maine then carried the ball to 
Bowdoin's 47 yard line, where Brewster recov. 
ered the ball on Martin's fumble. Lewis punted, 
and it was returned, on Bowdoin's 25 yard line. 
Foster fumbled, and when Purington obtained the 
ball, Maine made first down on Bowdoin's 15 yard 
line. Maine then made 5 through right tackle, 
but after several rushes, Maine failed to go her 
distance, and Lewis punted from the 6 yard line. 
After Donahue had gone through center for 3, 
Cobb punted to Brown and on a fumble Donahue 
made the touchdown. Cobb kicked out, but the 
ball fell, leaving the score 6-0 in favor of Maine. 
After Bowdoin had kicked, Martin made 5, and 
• Cobb punted 30 yards to Brown. Lewis then 
kicked for 45 yards, and Maine brought the ball 
to the 47 yard mark, and then punted to Bow- 
doin's 25 yard line. The period closed after Bow- 
doin had brought the ball back 10 yards. 


Lewis punted to Ruffner who received it on the 
40 yard line, but immediately Cobb kicked to 
Bowdoin's 20 yard line. Bowdoin then punted 
and Cobb made a 26 yard run around Bowdoin's 
left end, placing the ball on her 12 yard line. 
Donahue and Ruffner then rushed the ball 4 yards 
more, and on the 16 yard line Ruffner made an 
unsuccessful try at a drop kick. After being 
pushed back, Bowdoin punted to Maine on her 24 
yard line. Maine after unsuccessful attempts at 
a forward pass, punted, and Baker took the ball 
on Bowdoin's first play. Maine then carried the 
ball to Bowdoin's 3 yard line where the White 
held for downs, and then punted. After Maine 
had been penalized 15 yards for holding, Cobb 
punted to Stuart on Bowdoin's 10 yard line. Bow- 
doin tried a forward pass which went to Maine 
on the 20 yard line. Maine then made a yard on 
forward passes, and Cobb made the drop kick 

which gave them three more points. The period 
closed soon after, with no important plays by 
either team.

Next Saturday afternoon in Portland the Bow- 
doin football team plays the last game of the 
present season and, incidentally, the final college 
game on a Maine gridiron, against the Tufts 
team. Early in the season Coach McCann pre- 
dicted that Tufts would be the strongest team 
Bowdoin would meet this year and from present 
indications this prediction is entirely true. He 
did not add that Bowdoin would present their 
strongest front of the season against the Massa- 
chusetts champions of the season, but it is true 
that his team will enter their last game with all 
the experience of seven games against strong 
teams, none the worse for injuries and with all 
the power and speed and driving force gained 
from a season's practice and playing. For Tufts, 
too, this is the final game and they are coming 
to Portland intent on duplicating their perform- 
ance of last year at Medford. With a record of 
defeating Wesleyan, Bates, Maine and Vermont, 
which Bowdoin has also met, and of defeating the 
fast Massachusetts Agricultural College team and 
outplaying West Point, they have received the 
most favorable comments from the sporting 
critics throughout the East. Bowdoin will play 
the best small college team produced in New Eng- 
land this year. 

Their play is much different from that of the 
University of Maine. Their emphasis is on the 
work of a fast and powerful backfield. The spec- 
tacular open style of play, the forward pass and 


[ 43 

quick shifts, and long end runs are used exten- 
sively in their offense. Angell and Wescott are 
two of the best men ever representing their col- 
lege. Angell is especially proficient in the throw- 
ing of long forward passes. 

Against this aggregation will be pitted seven 
veterans playing their last game for "old Bow- 
doin" and four other hard-playing men. Those 
who have watched for four years the work of 
Captain "Bob" Weatherill, "King" Pratt and 
"Brose" Burns; for two years, the work of "Lew" 
Brown, Elroy LaCasce and Arthur Pratt; and 
this season, the playing of "Sum" Mountfort, 
know that next Saturday in their final game in a 
Bowdoin uniform they will play as they never 
have played before. Steadiness, power and grit 
and Bowdoin fight are the characteristics of their 
playing. Mountfort, playing against his old team- 
mates may be counted on for one of his best ex- 
hibitions. Against the Wesleyan team Bowdoin 
prepared a defense for forward passes and its 
success against that aggregation in this branch 
was notably successful. Since that game no team 
has been able to employ this method of offense 
for any considerable gains against Bowdoin. 
Next Saturday, however, the White will meet an 
aggregation whose long suit is this style of play. 
Those who follow the game will watch with the 
keenest interest the ability of our men to inter- 
cept the long Tufts passes. Such an outlook 
means a game full of exciting moments, and 
spectacular plays. 


Captain Weatherill and Coach McCann have 
picked the following all-Maine team: left end, 
Royal, Colby; left tackle, Murray, Maine; left 
guard, Pratt, Bowdoin; center, Baker, Maine; 
right guard, Gulliver, Maine ; right tackle, Burns, 
Bowdoin; right end, Leadbetter, Bowdoin; quar- 
ter back, Cobb, Maine; left half back, Fraser, 
Colbv ; right half back, Lowney, Colby ; full back, 
Dyer, Bates. 

McCann and Weatherill disagreed on the posi- 
tion of right half, McCann wishing to place 
Weatherill there. The Lewiston Sun yesterday 
had an all-Maine team chosen by the coach and 
captain of each team. In nearly every one 
Weatherill was named. 


According to the usual custom there will be an 
excursion to Portland Saturday for this final 
game with Tufts. Those who have been in col- 
lege for a year or more need not be told the 

pleasures of this football day and evening in 
Portland. There is the game, always a good 
one, representing the best and final efforts of two 
strong teams, in one of whom is your interest 
and faith and hope. Then there is the celebra- 
tion of the end of the season and the evening at 
the theatre. Last year, practically every member 
of the student body was present at the game. 
This year there should be none left to keep the 
faculty company at the late morning recitations. 

Arrangements have been made with the Maine 
Central Railroad for special rates good Saturday 
to Monday of ninety-five cents round trip. The 
band will be there and head the student body pro- 
cession from Union Station to Monument Square. 
Tufts will be present with the largest rooting 
squad they have ever sent with the addition of a 
large number of Boston alumni of both institu- 

The regular train service will be augmented by 
the addition of extra coaches. 


Through the kindness of fthe management of 
the Jefferson Theatre the Saturday evening pro- 
duction of Madame Sherry will be Football Night. 
Boxes have been tendered the players of both 
teams on opposite sides of the theatre and there is 
little doubt but that the students of both colleges 
will make a memorable occasion of the evening. 

Before the theatre party the members of the 
Bowdoin football squad will hold their annual 
banquet in the State of Maine room of the Fal- 
mouth Hotel. At this time the season's training 
will be brought to its official close. 

Tickets for the Tufts game will go on sale at 
the Manager's Room in the Gymnasium Thurs- 
day afternoon t. 30-4. 30. This will be the only 
student sale of these reserved seats and it is ab- 
solutely necessary that students get their tickets 
at this time. The unsold tickets must be re- 
turned to Portland for general sale. The price 
is 50c for general admission, grandstand 50c, 
bleachers 25c. The Bowdoin cheering section 
will be in the grandstand.

The Rally vs. Noyes 

An interesting contrast between the attitude 
of the Bowdoin faculty members and that of 
many other institutions in New England was 
brought out by the scheduling and holding of 
the Annie Talbot Cole Lecture on the evening 
preceding the Maine game. For years this even- 
ing has been set aside by the student body and 
returning graduates for a rally before the big game 
of the year. Although the annual event has not 
been raised to the dignity of a Bowdoin Night 
such as Dartmouth night, before their big game, 
and Maine Night, it was one of the two large 
rallies of the year. Loyal alumni who cannot be 
at the Maine game send back messages for the 
event and altogether it is one of the most im- 
portant student gatherings of the year. The 
wisdom of those in charge of these lectures is 
not questioned by the Orient. It only illus- 
trates the rather striking attitude of the Bowdoin 
faculty. At other institutions the faculty co- 

operate with students in making such rallies a suc- 
cess ; the President of the institution presides 
and prominent faculty members speak. At Bow- 
doin such a rally is, evidently, considered to be 
of much less moment. Returning alumni this 
year were somewhat surprised to find Memorial 
Hall used for a lecture and reading on Interna- 
tional Peace on the eve of our great gridiron 
struggle and some were very much disappointed. 
The student body was only partially reconciled 
to the situation and was represented in great part 
by Freshmen with English 1 considerations. But, 
perhaps, we are emphasizing our own special in- 
terests too much at the expense of our deeper 
intellectual training. What do you think? 


For the third successive year, the University of 
Maine has won the state football championship, 
but never has any team had to work the way 
Maine has to secure it. Following Maine's clean 
slate comes Colby with two victories and one de- 
feat; Bowdoin, with one victory and two defeats, 
and Bates, with three losses. 

Credit must be given to Maine and to the men 
who made up the team, but in the giving of that 
credit, the other three colleges should not be for.

ball and stubborn resistance by the losers was 
often more praiseworthy than the offense of the 

Even if Bowdoin failed to win the champion- 
ship, Bowdoin men cannot but feel pleased with 
the work of their team and coaches. Although 
not particularly heavy, Bowdoin's line has held 
men much heavier and the backs have gained 
through lines supposedly superior. 

But perhaps the greatest praise that Bowdoin 
can receive is that given by their opponents. 
Maine's confidence in piling up a huge score is 
equalled only by her surprise at the game Bow- 
doin played and the comparatively low one she 
was obliged to accept. 

All four colleges lose heavily by graduation 
next spring, and a prophecy as to next fall would 
be more or less of a gamble, but— "here's hop- 

The absence of the big BOWDOIN banner 
has been noticed at the games this Fall. The 
cheering leaders have instituted a search for it, 
but it is nowhere to be found. It must be had 
before the excursion Saturday. Let everyone 
look in his closet for it and that of his neighbors. 
We must get the BOWDOIN banner. Notify 
X. Callahan if found. 




The concert to be given Monday, November 17, 
in Memorial Hall, by the Downer-Eaton Trio and 
Mrs. Grace Bonner Williams of Boston, promises 
to be a rare treat. 

Mrs. Jessie Downer-Eaton is one of Boston's 
most famous pianists. She has appeared as solo, 
ist with the largest and most popular combina- 
tions of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and is a 
favorite with patrons of high class music. 

Julius Theodorowicz, the violinist of the trio, 
is one of the Saturday night soloists of the Bos- 
ton Symphony Orchestra. For seven years he 
was one of the famous Kneisel Quartet and for 
two years was a member of the Hess-Schroeder 
Quartet. On any concert stage he is always 
greeted with applause. 

Joseph Keller came to this country seventeen 
years ago to occupy the first desk as 'cellist in the 
Boston Symphony Orchestra of which he is still 
a member. 

Mrs. Williams is considered one of the finest 
singers in this part of the country, and is said to 
compare favorably with the better artists of the ' 
Metropolitan Opera Company. For five years she 
has been the soloist of the Handel and Haydn 
Society of Boston, and also soloist with the Ce- 
celia and Apollo Club of Boston. 

Over a four and one-half mile course of city 
streets, country roads, fields, and ploughed

seven and won with twenty points. Colby was 
second with forty-five points, Bowdoin next with 
seventy-one points and Bates last with one hun- 
dred three points. The work of Preti of Maine, 
Wenz of Colby and Crosby of Bowdoin, all

'Expelled for not drinking beer," is the sur- 
prising headline in the newspapers telling of a 
cable from Griefswald, Germany, which states 
that because of criticism of the college drinking 
customs as illustrated in a typical "beer evening" 
celebration, one student was sentenced to three 
days' confinement in the university dungeon, two 
others were expelled, and four more were sum- 
moned to trial before the university officials. The 
dispatch is all the more startling because of the 
recent terrific indictments against alcohol by 
some of the most brilliant scientists and profes- 
sors of Germany. 

A new system of taking attendance of students 
at chemistry lectures has been adopted at the 
University of Pennsylvania. At the beginning of 
each semester each student is given sixteen tick- 
ets, numbered from one to sixteen, to be presented 
for admission at the sixteen lectures delivered 
during the term. Besides the number of the lec- 
ture, each ticket also bears a number designating 
the student. This plan is expected to supersede 
the roll-call, thereby saving time and abolishing 
the practice of answering for absent men. 



That men do not come to college primarily for 
athletics but mainly through the influence of 
alumni and undergraduates is indicated by state- 
ments collected from every member of last year's 
freshman class at Dartmouth. Three hundred 
and eighty-one men were interviewed as to their 
reasons for entering Dartmouth in preference to 
any other college, and their answers were tabulat- 
ed as follows : Influence of Dartmouth graduates 
and undergraduates, 141 ; location of the college, 
46; size of the college as midway between the 
small college and the university, 12 ; influence of 
relatives in or out of college, 42; plan of admis- 
sion, 18; reputation and spirit, 11; lower expense 
of education at Dartmouth, 10; Thayer School, 
13; Tuck School, 11; athletics, 5; miscellaneous 
and combined reasons, 73. 

Columbia University has a record attendance 
of 10,469 students this fall. 

Recent agitation of the question of the regula- 
tion of student dancing at the University of Kan- 
sis has caused a decided slump in the attendance 
at down-town dances. According to a ruling of 
the University Council, no student may attend a 
dance at which a general price of admission is

NO. 19 


Tufts closed a remarkably brilliant season by- 
defeating Bowdoin Saturday, Nov. 15 at Pine 
Tree Park by the score of 27 to 7. Bowdoin 
closed its season by a splendid exhibition of stub- 
born and unflagging defense against a team 
which is rated as one of the best in New England. 
Both teams played football of a very high order, 
Tufts bewildering, brilliant, sensational; Bowdoin 
steady, scrappy, scintillating now and then with 
flashes of defensive or offensive play which 
brought the stands to their feet. 

In Angell, Wescott, Hadley and Parks, Tufts 
had a backfield whose lightning shifts were fol- 
lowed by battering-ram plunges and wide-circling 
end runs. Time and again during the latter part 
of the game Angell's arm shot forward passes 
such as have not been seen in Maine this year be- 
tore. During the earlier periods, however, Bow- 
doin linesmen or backs intercepted or knocked 
down nearly all of Angell's shoots. 

Lewis's punting was a great factor in the Bow- 
doin defense. Time and again his ability to com- 
pletely out-distance his rival Parks in the punting 
game put the ball in more comfortable territory. 
All of the backs were sure in their tackling while 
the ends played a star game, both running under 
punts and stopping the numerous attempts to get 
around our extremities. The linesmen too broke 
up plays time and again, diving across behind the 
line or piling up the whole interference with a 
human rock-on-the-track. To pick out stars is 
difficult. Every man played for all there was in 
him, and no more need be said. The tackles, 
Lewis and Burns, were the objective point of 
Tufts' attack for the most part and bore the 
crushing attack of the whole Tufts backfield for 
play after play with wonderful gameness and con- 
stantly increasing firmness. Brewster at guard 
served the last of his novitiate like a veteran. 
King Pratt got many a play behind the line. 
Barry did things behind his opponent's back 
which Tufts evidently did not expect the little fel- 
low to do. 

On the offense Herb Foster and Stuart were 
our best ground gainers, with Bob Weatherill, 
running around Capt. Bennett's end, not far be- 

The most sensational plays were C. Foster's re- 
covery of Volk's fumble and "Sammy White 
touchdown" and the two long distance passes by 
which Tufts scored in the last period, passes 
which crossed the field from side to side. 

Tufts scored in the first period, Bowdoin in 
the third, Tufts once again in the third, and 
twice in the fourth, the last touchdown being 
scored in the last few minutes of play. 


Tufts won the toss and decided to receive the 
kick on the north side of the field. Mountfort 
kicked to Parks on the 10 yard line. The very 
first play was a long forward pass over the left 
end of the line to Wescott, netting 28 yards. 
Weatherill got the tackle. Mountfort replaced 
by Brewster. Angell, Hadley and Wescott made 
first down in three rushes through the line. Had- 
ley held for no gain by "King" Pratt. Parks at- 
tempted another forward pass but Fitzgerald in- 
tercepted it. Stuart thrown for a loss. Lewis 
punted outside at the 40 yard line. Wescott 4 
yards through center. Parks stopped by LaCasce 
for no gain. Incompleted forward pass. 

Bowdoin recovered an onside kick on her 15 
yard line. Weatherill no gain through center. 
Lewis punted to 40 yard line. A. Pratt tackled 
Parks for no gain. Angell 6 yards through left 
tackle. Two more rushes by Angell and Wescott 
for first down. Wescott 6 yards through left 
tackle. Wescott no gain. Fitzgerald intercepted 
a forward pass on his 15 yard line. Lewis 1 yard 
through center. Stuart made the required dis- 
tance around right end. Tufts tightened up on 
the next two rushes and Lewis punted 35 yards to 
Parks who signalled fair catch. Hadley and An- 
gell made first down in two rushes around the 
ends. Wescott 12 yards. Tackled by Stuart on 
the 42 yard line. Parks and Angell made first 
down around the right side of the line. Ball on 
the 25 yard line. Parks made 6 yards, stopped by 
"Fitz." Wescott first down through left tackle. 
Parks no gain through center of line. Wescott 
carried the ball 8 yards to the 5 yard line. Wes- 
cott made first down in the next rush and Angell 
carried the ball over for a touchdown. Parks 
missed the goal. 

LaCasce kicked off to Bingham who was 



dropped in his tracks. A. P ratt broke up forward 
pass. Angell 3 yards around right end. Incom- 
pleted pass by Parks, who then punted to the 5 
yard line. Stankard touched the ball before 
Stuart. End of first period. Bowdoin's ball on 
her own 5 yard line. 


"Herb" Foster replaced Fitzgerald. Foster took 
the ball three rushes for first down. After two 
more rushes by Foster, Lewis punted outside at 
the 15 yard line. Parks and Wescott made first 
down in two rushes. Wescott and Parks two

As a result of the physical examinations given 
to all new students and to all candidates for ath- 
letic teams at Bowdoin this fall, Dr. F. N. Whit- 
tier, Professor of Hygiene and Physical Train- 
ing, has announced the ten men who have passed 
the highest strength tests for the college and the 
ten men who have the best strength records for 
the Freshman class. The weight and strength 
tests are given in kilograms and the height in 
centimeters. The weight and strength may be 
reckoned approximately in pounds by multiplying 
the figures given in kilograms by two and one- 
fifth. The height may be reckoned approximate- 
ly in inches by dividing by two and one-half. 
Physical examinations are required of all new 
students and all candidates for athletic teams 
each year. It is interesting to note that a Fresh- 
man heads the college list for the first time since 
1908, and that of the ten strong men, six are 
Sophomores, two are Freshmen, one is a Junior, 
one is a special student. The Seniors are unrep- 
resented on the list this year. The two lists of

As we turn again from the football season to 
the quieter work of the winter we may well stop 
and take a backward and forward look. The 
whole season was marked with good feeling, co- 
operation, teamwork. This was especially notice- 
able among the players and coaches. The student 
body supported the team with only average at- 
tendance and mediocre cheering. We are in- 
clined, however, to the belief that this lack of 
unity in student support is due in large part to a 
neglect of that phase of our student life. With 
this knowledge we may look forward to the win- 
ter's activity with a definite purpose. As a col- 
lege we can not afford to let our cheering and 
singing suffer. The winter evenings offer the 
opportunity for such development. Let us have 
more real "sings" and rallies. There are new 
college songs which have not yet been sung by 
the student body. The class singing competition 
will come in the spring and offers additional in- 
centive for development. Here is a good chance 
for the Student Council through its committees 
to do a real service to the undergraduates. 


Since the publication of the editorial in our last 
issue in regard to the conflict of the Maine rally 
with a lecture we have been besieged with com- 
munications. After reading them we would will- 
ingly unsay much that was interpreted to be our 
meaning in writing it, but nothing of what we 
actually said or meant to say. To attempt to be- 
little the excellence of the lecture or minimize our 
rare good fortune in having the opportunity of 
listening to such a distinguished man was far- 
thest from our thoughts. To suggest that the fac- 
ulty and students were not on the best of terms, 
or that the conduct of rallies should be given 
over more extensively into faculty hands was 
surely not our intention. In this as always we en- 
deavored to look at the matter from the stand- 
point of the students and express their senti- 
ments, and had no thought of personal criticism. 
We even questioned at the end whether our atti- 
tude was not too much colored by the undergrad- 
utae point of view. To our critics we commend 
an impartial reading of the editorial and refrain 
from publishing communications in an effort to 
let the discussion die a natural death. But we 
would hope — and this was the editorial's purpose 
— that in the future there should be no occasion 
for another editorial on the same subject.

. The Prize Song Contest has now been closed 
and the prize of fifty dollars awarded to Kenneth 
Allen Robinson of the senior class. His song is 
entitled "Forward the White" and was chosen as 
the best of thirty songs. 

A prize of fifty dollars is now offered for the 
best musical setting for this new song. The com- 
petition is open to all, but in awarding the prize 
preference will be given, other things being equal, 
to a Bowdoin man, whether graduate or under- 
graduate. This contest will close April I, 1914. 
Copies of the song may be obtained by applying 
to Mr. Wass, Chairman of the Music Committee. 
The prize song follows : 


Oh, Defenders of the White, 
'Mid the tumult of the fight, 

Do you hear the. measured tramp of marching 
Do you hear the thund'rous roar, 
Like the surf upon the shore, 

Of our mighty host that can not know defeat? 
Do you hear our crashing song, 
As we proudly march along? 

Do you hear the ringing message that we send ? 
As the waves of battle roll 
We are with you, heart and soul, 

And we'll follow, follow, follow to the end. 
Forward the White, 
On through the fight, 

Emblem of honor, 
Peerless and bright. 
Through stress and strain, 
Peril and pain, 

Borne to the end 
With never a stain. 
Loyal and true 
Always to you, 

Each son of Bowdoin 
Will dare and will do. 
Victory's fair light 
Ever in sight, 

Bowdoin will triumph, 
Forward the White. 
Oh, Defenders of the White, 
Look a moment -from the fight, 

Where above the rocking stands our colors fly. 
Every heart's devoid of fear, 
There's a trust in every cheer 

That we fling with lusty voices to the sky. 
On for Bowdoin, one and all, 
Such a force can never fall, 

Gather greater power from our bold array ; 
And we'll make the heavens ring 

With the joyous song we sing, 

As old Bowdoin sweeps to victory today. 


The football squad held its annual banquet af- 
ter the Tufts game Saturday at the Congress 
Square Hotel, Portland. As a part of the post- 
prandial exercises, Capt. Weatherill called on the 
Senior members of the squad for speeches. The 
men who spoke were Coach McCann, Trainer 
Magee, L. Pratt, Burns, Mountfort, Hall, La- 
Casce, A. Pratt, Badger, and Manager Leigh. L.- 
Brown was excused from speaking but received: 
his share of the cheers which greeted the speak- 
ers. Each man spoke of how much it had meant 
to him to form the intimate associations of the 
football field and to have the chance to fight and 
work for Bowdoin. In his speech Manager 
Leigh made the very pleasing announcement that 
although the season was begun with a debt of 
$1050.00, that debt was now completely effaced 
with a surplus of $109.50, which would enable 
him to give sweaters to the team. After the 
speeches the squad occupied boxes at the per- 
formance of Madame Sherry at the Jefferson. 
The men present at the banquet were: Capt. 
Weatherill, Manager Leigh, Coach McCann, 
Trainer Magee, L. Pratt '14, L. Brown '14, Burns 
'14, Mountfort '14, Hall '14, LaCasce '14/A. Pratt 
'14, Badger '14, Lewis '15, Floyd '15, Austin '15, 
Mannix '15, MacCormick '15, H. Foster '16, Fitz- 
gerald '16, Leadbetter '16, , Barry '16, Stuart '16, 
J. Moulton '16, Brewster '16, Beal '16, Wood '16, 
Dyar '16, Rawson '16, Colbath '17, C. Foster '17,' 
K. Stone '17, McConaughy '17, McDonald '15^ 
Littlefield '16, Noble '16, Kelly '16, Crossman '16. 


The rally Friday night was one of the most 
enthusiastic ones which have been held this year. 
The football men were not allowed to attend but a 
large number of undergraduates and alumni was 
there. Callahan '14 presided over the meeting 
and the speakers were Coach McCann, Trainer 
Magee, Manager Leigh, E. A. Ounlap '03, John 
Clifford '10, Dr. F. N. Whittier and Joe Knowles. 
Especially stirring speeches were given by John 
Clifford and Trainer Magee. 

Doctor W. W. Feni-i, Dean of the Harvard Di- 
vinity School, will be the second College Preacher 
of the year. He will speak at the Church on the 
Hill and at chapel next Sunday. Doctor Fenn 
was a College Preacher three years ago. 




Little which is certain can be told now as to 
what the lineup will be for the Freshman- Sopho- 
more game next Saturday, but a probable lineup 
is as follows : — 

1916 1917 

Beal (Parmenter), e e, McConaughy (Pike)

Dyar, fb fb, Paine 

No arrangement has yet been made as regards 
the picking of officials. 


In the second Annie Talbot Cole lecture, deliv- 
ered Friday evening, November 7, Alfred Noyes 
spoke on the subject of International Peace. In 
his lecture he pictured the earth as a "Great 
Green Table" about which sit the world-powers 
gaming for the possession of the nations. Mr. 
Noyes is one of the foremost leaders of the so- 
called Peace Movement, and his lecture set forth 
the conventional arguments against war in bril- 
liant and original imagery. 

Militarism, he said, is an offspring that is care- 
fully and tenderly nurtured until it grows beyond 
all bounds and eventually destroys the parents 
who gave it birth. The idea that only by a supe- 
rior armament can a nation maintain its dominion 
leads to a terrific strain on a nation's resources, 
and eats up the money that would otherwise be 
devoted to healing great gaping social wounds. 
War is a barbarism, a relic of past ages, and 
"humanity demands that the men who sit about the 
"Great Green Table" leave their game. The 
mightiest navies "melt away," and "on dune and 
headland sinks the fire;" the efforts of princes 
and presidents should be directed toward the 
creation of more enduring things than guns and 
fighting lines. 

To drive home his arguments Mr. Noyes read 
parts of a long unpublished poem entitled "De- 
mocracy." The poem is an obvious arraignment 
of militarism, laying bare in bold phraseology the 
disgusting truths that underlie the idealist's con- 
ception of war. The poem deals with a soldier in 
the Balkans whose home and happiness are de- 
stroyed by those whom he helps raise to power. 
Mr. Noyes' reading was dramatic in the extreme 

and affected his audience visibly. 

In addition to "Democracy" Mr. Noyes read 
several other selections from his works, including 
"Sherwood," and a particularly beautiful and ap- 
propriate piece of verse entitled "Oxford Re- 

The action of the college authorities in bring- 
ing Mr. Noyes here as the Annie Talbot Cole lec- 
turer for this year can hardly be praised too high- 
ly. Mr. Noyes is a man upon whom the eyes of 
the whole literary world are turned, and it was a 
rare privilege for Bowdoin men to see and hear a 
true poet in the first flush of his career. 


The next Y. M. C. A. meeting will be held 
Thursday evening, Nov. 20, at 7 p. m. in the Y. M. 
C. A. room. The. speaker will be Bishop Robert 
Codman of Portland, who has been a very popu- 
lar speaker on previous occasions. 


The concert given last night by the Downer- 
Eaton Trio in Memorial Hall was one of the most 
enjoyable musical treats heard in this vicinity for 
some time. The concert was well attended both 
by students and townspeople. The program was 
given by the following artists : 

Jessie Downer-Eaton, piano ; Julius Theodoro- 
wicz, violin ; Joseph Keller, 'cello, and Mrs. Grace 
Bonner Williams. 


About 80 students and members of the faculty 
attended the recital given Saturday noon by Mr. 
Will C. MacFarlane, the municipal organist, on 
the great organ in the Portland City Hall. This 
recital was given especially for Bowdoin men 
and Mr. MacFarlane expressed his willingness 
and desire to give several such recitals through 
the year. 


The following men have been picked for the 
Glee Club: West '15, Card '15, Evans '15, Wil-

'03. — Farnsworth G. Marshall, superintendent

The original 20 candidates for the position had 
been gradually sifted down until it was a choice 
between two candidates and Mr. Marshall was 
elected. He has accepted the offer. 

Mr. Marshall is 38 years old and a native of 
Maryland, but he has spent most of his life in 
Maine. After graduation from the East Maine 
Conference Seminary at Bucksport in 1896, he 
taught school for several years in Winterport, 
Orrington and the Addison High School, and 
then entered Bowdoin College, from which he 
was graduated with his honors in 1903. He was 
at once chosen principal of the Old Town, Me., 
High School, where he served successfully for 
several years. Later he became principal of Cony ■ 
High School, Augusta, and after four years in 
that position he was in 1910 elected superinten- 
dent of schools of that city. 

At that time he was president of the Maine As- 
sociation of Colleges and Secondary Schools. He 
has a high reputation as an instructor, especially 
in the department of mathematics, and as an ad-

sible, he will begin his new duties Dec. 1. He has 
tendered his resignation of the church in Saco. 
While the parishioners regret that Mr. Emerson 
is to leave Saco, they realize the compliment in 
his being called to one of the largest Congrega-

accept his resignation.

NO. 20 


Although the final game of the season made the 
final result for the schedule of eight games three 
won, one tied, and four lost, nobody will deny 
that it has been a splendid season. We have seen 
our team fight to the last ditch when they were 
outclassed and play stronger and stronger as the 
game wore on. We have seen them come back 
from defeat to victory, hold teams considered 
their superiors, and upset time and again the 
dope of those who said "Easy picking." Bowdoin 
has been represented by a team which did not 
bring home the pennant, but which inspired just 
pride in the hearts of its loyal supporters. The 
1913 team have set for future teams an example 
of fight, spirit, and grit which they may well copy. 

Capt. Bob Weatherill as captain and as player 
has been a constant inspiration to his men. Those 
who saw him in the second half ■ of the Bates 
game will never forget him. On the offensive he 
has been a consistent gainer, his short end runs 
being especially brilliant. On the defensive he 
has made those low driving tackles that have 
marked him as the original "clean-up man." He 
was unanimously chosen for the all-Maine team. 

Brosie Burns, after being out a year, surprised 
everybody by pulling down a tackle position, after 
three years at guard. The fact that he had been 
working in a dynamite factory for a year was im- 
mediately made evident. In every game he has 
handled some of the hardest men in the opposing 
line and few gains have been made through his 
position. His down-field work has been remark- 
able for a man of his bulk. 

Sumner Mountfort at guard has been a human 
Gibraltar. His weight and knowledge of the 
game are combined with agility, which makes him 
a most difficult man to get plays through and a 
very dangerous- man on the offensive. 

On the other side of center Leo Pratt has 
played the same steady, reliable game which he 
played for three years before. At times "King's" 
play has been brilliant, notably in the Tufts game, 
when he was through on play after play. He has 
played the best games of his career this year, 
which is praise enough in itself. 

LaCasce at full-back, although suffering from 
injuries all the season, has given the best there 
was in him all year. He has made many gams on 

offence, but his defensive work has been particu- 
larly noteworthy, while his drop-kicking spelled 
"Victory" in the Bates game. 

Alton Lewis, the Captain-elect, at tackle, has 
played a hard, consistent game. It is to his splen- 
did punting, however, that Bowdoin owes most. 
He has punted long and high in every game and 
more than once booted from the shadow of the 
goal posts into safe territory. He has been the 
greatest asset of the team's defence. 

Lew Brown at quarter played in most of the 
games, with Stuart as substitute. In spite of one 
costly slip, Brown's handling of punts has been 
of fine quality. In the Maine game he was 
forced to receive a large number of very difficult 
punts. The way in which he has run them back 
has been notably good as has the way in which he 
ran the ends. 

Stuart showed great promise at quarter, being 
very strong in carrying the ball and on defensive 

Arthur Pratt at left end has been a very fast 
man down the field and a strong defensive end, 
although he has been handicapped by lack of ex- 

Clif Foster has also played left end and done 
some sensational work. He has been the fastest 
man under punts and has been brilliant at sifting 
through interference and breaking up end runs. 

On the other end Leadbetter has played the 
star game he played at tackle last year. On of- 
fensive work he has been even stronger than ever. 
He has made his end practically impregnable on 
defensive, and is considered by many one of the 
best ends in the State. 

Herb Foster at left half has been our most 
consistent ground gainer, his skin tackle dives be- 
ing sensational. His defensive work, tackling 
and breaking up forward passes, would be hard 
to excel. At Wesleyan he played a wonderful 
game in this department, running back two inter- 
cepted passes for 85 yards each. He has had no 
equal in the state this year for this form of de- 
fensive work. 

Nobody understands how Barry at center can 
play the game that he does but in spite of his size 
he produces the results. Few gains have been 
made through his position and his passing has 
been fast and sure. 



Fitzgerald has been utility man at end, half, 
and quarter and has been a very valuable man. 
He has been fast on end runs and sure in his 
tackles on the end of the line. 

Jim Brewster found his place at guard during 
the Bates game and though a new man at football 
showed great stuff. He is strong and nervy and 
gets through on punts time and again. 

Colbath at full-back has been especially strong 
on defensive. He should prove valuable in of- 
fence with more experience as he is strong and 

Under Coach McCann and Trainer Magee the 
team has had the best of training and coaching. 
The team came through the season under Magee's 
care with only one injury. Coach McCann has 
made the team respect and admire him both as a 
coach and a man. 

In speaking of Manager Leigh, we need only 
point to results, a well-cared for team, a schedule 
considerate of team and public, a smooth-running, 
well-ordered season, and above all, an over- 
whelming debt of over $1000 cleared away. His 
worth as a manager needs no praise here. 

The schedule of the season follows : 

Sept. 27. — Bowdoin, 17; New Hampshire State, 

Oct. 4. — Bowdoin, 7; Wesleyan, 13. 

Oct. 11. — Bowdoin, o; Trinity, 0.

Tuesday afternoon last week, after the picture 
at Webber's, Herbert Alton Lewis '15 was elected 
captain of the Bowdoin football team for the sea- 
son of 1914. Lewis prepared at Hebron Acad- 
emy, graduating in 191 1. He played four years 
on the Hebron team, playing guard and tackle. 

In his Freshman year at college he played right 
tackle on the Varsity; in his Sophomore year, 
guard ; and this year, left tackle. This season he 
has done all of the punting for the team. His 
playing has been most consistent and the team 
looks forward to a successful season under his 


The following men have been awarded football 
B's by the Athletic Council : Captain Weatherill 
' 14, Manager Leigh ' 14, A.L. Pratt ' i4,L. Brown

For the second time in nine years, the Sopho- 
mores defeated the Freshmen in football Saturday 
afternoon on the Delta. The game was a hard 
fight from whistle to whistle as the score of 7 to 
6 shows. The field was in perfect condition and 
both teams did some fast work. The Sophomores 
made most ot their gains on line plunges, Dyar 
being the star performer, while the Freshmen, 
with Eddie Balfe carrying the ball, got off some 
sensational end runs. 

Wood and Capt. Moulton were very strong for 
the Sophomores while Balfe and Bradford were 
the Freshman stars. McConaughy punted well 
for 19 1 7. 

The Sophomores scored with only half a min- 
ute of the first half to play and the Freshmen 
scored at the beginning of the fourth period but 
failed to kick the goal. 


The Freshmen kicked to the Sophomores. On 
the next play Balfe captured a forward pass and 
run it back 15 yards through a broken field. Af- 
ter three futile rushes Chapman tried for a goal, 
but failed. With the ball on the 20 yard line the 
Sophomores were unable to gain and Dyar punt- 
ed. Chapman made 5 yards, Paine 3, Corbett no 
gain. A forward, Balfe to McConaughy, failed 
and the Sophomores took the offensive. Thomas 
no gain. Dyar 4 yards. Stone off side. Dyar 
and Beal failed to gain. Dyar punted to the 1 
yard line. McConaughy returned the punt to the 
middle of the field. Dyar and Beal no gain. A 
forward pass failed. Dyar tried a drop which 
went low. Chapman recovered it. McConaughy 
punted. Dyar dropped back to punt but the pass 
went over his head and the kick was too hurried 
to be effectual. Score: Freshmen, 0; Sopho- 
mores, o. 


Bradford broke through and nailed Dyar for a 
loss. Chapman hurt. Dyar punted. Balfe 5 
yards through center. Paine fumbled and Brad- 
ford recovered. First down. Paine and Balfe 
made first down in two rushes. After three trys 
to gain Chapman punted. The ball rolled behind 
goal-line and was taken to the 20 yard line. 
Thomas and Dyar failed to gain, so Dyar punted. 
Balfe ran ball back 20 yards and Dyar finally 
downed him in one of the prettiest tackles of the 
game. Freshmen penalized for tripping. The 
ball went to the Sophomores when the Freshmen 
failed to gain their distance. Thomas and Dyar 



made first down twice, and finally Dyar broke 
through for a touchdown, and kicked the goal. 
Score: Freshmen, o; Sophomores, 7. 


Sophomores kicked to Paine. Chapman and 
Paine made first down. Paine made first down in 
two rushes. Paine 4 yards, Balfe 2 yards. A for- 
ward failed and McConaughy punted. The punt 
was muffed and Doten recovered. The Freshmen 
were now within striking distance of the goal line 
but couldn't gain and Dyar punted out of danger. 
Balfe ran the punt back to within 15 yards of the 
goal line. Paine and Corbett both failed to gain. 
Balfe was thrown for a loss on a double pass. 
Dyar punted out of danger and again Balfe ran 
the ball back to the 15 yard line. Bradford made 
5 yards, Swift failed to gain and the period was 
over. Score : Freshmen, o ; Sophomores, 7. 


Balfe made first down through center, and then 
skirted the end for 10 yards and a touchdown. 
Chapman missed the goal from a difficult angle. 
Score: Freshmen, 6; Sophomores, 7. Bradford 
kicked to Beal who ran the ball back 20 yards. 
Dyar made first down in three rushes. Thomas 
made 2 yards. Hazeltine nailed Thomas for a 
loss. Dyar punted to Chapman who made a fair 
catch. Swift, Chapman and Paine made first 
down. Paine 3 yards, Balfe no gain. Doten 
muffed a forward, and McConaughy punted. 
Bradford was right down under it and tackled 
Larabee before he could start. Beal and Thomas 
no gain. Dyar 7 yards. Beal no gain. End of 
the game. 

Final score: Sophomores, 7; Freshmen, 6.

The Communication 

We are glad to print in this issue a communi- 
cation from an undergraduate in regard to the 
policy of sending Y. M. C. A. delegates to the 
Kansas City convention. It seems to us entirely 
proper that a question such as this should be 
raised concerning the expenditure of the A. S. 
B. C. appropriations. Indeed, the curtailing of 
unwise expenditure by publicity of expenses is 
one of the advantages of the estimate system em- 
ployed by the Board of Managers. But, as often, 
the criticism of this expenditure seems to be mis- 
directed. The Board of Managers makes its ap- 
propriations in a lump sum from estimates sub- 
mitted. In the Y. M. C. A. estimate submitted 
last June based on mere running expenses of 
printing, etc., the Board reduced the total fifty 
dollars from the amount of the previous year. It 
would seem that the appropriation, then, did not 
include such expenditure. The spending of the 
appropriations is entirely in the hands of the va- 
rious organizations. Whether this expense is 
justified is a question for the Y. M. C. A. to de- 
cide. We are informed that the additional ex- 

pense is to be met by funds obtained from outside 
resources. In this way the expenditure becomes 
a question of Y. M. C. A. policy rather than ex- 
pending of student funds. As to the policy of 
sending these men, the Bowdoin Y. M. C. A. is so 
well managed that the question of sending such a 
deputation should hardly be questioned by lay- 
men. It is a national convention attended by rep- 
resentatives from colleges throughout the land. 
It is fortunate that Bowdoin can be represented. 


To the Editor of the Orient: — 

At a time when our Baseball Association is 
heavily in debt and when our Track Association 
is unable to send men to the Intercollegiates there 
comes the announcement that two representatives 
are to be sent by our Y. M. C. A. to the Interna- 
tional Convention of the Student Volunteer 
Movement in Kansas City. According to the 
present plan fifty dollars ($50) is to be appro- 
priated for this purpose from the Y. M. C. A. 
share of the Blanket Tax Fund. Practically all 
the men in the College are vitally interested in 
both baseball and track whereas but a small num- 
ber are interested in representation in a national 
convention of the Y. M. C. A. 

There are certain manifest disadvantages in- 
herent in the Blanket Tax System which cannot 
be obviated if the system is to endure but this un- 
equal distribution of funds whereby the will of 
the givers is so manifestly violated seems to be an 
abuse and one which is capable of rectification. 
If the Y. M. C. A. is in such a prosperous condi- 
tion that it cannot find some remote charitable 
field in which to place its surplus it might begin 
by being charitable at home and give its riches to 
our athletic associations for which the Blanket 
Tax was most intended.

The catalogue number of the Bowdoin College 
Bulletin for 1913 and 1914 shows that the total 
registration of the College is 424. Of this number, 
358 are students in the academical department and 
66 in the medical school. This makes a gross 
total of 424, but two names that are counted twice 
reduce the net total to 422. 

The registration follows : 


Seniors 61

Sophomores 88 

Freshmen: first year 113

The summary of instructors follows :

j Medical faculty 65 

Total 93 

Names counted twice 7 

Corrected total 86 

This is a net gain of four over the number of 
instructors last year. 

According to the new catalogue, 312 students 
room in the dormitories or fraternity houses. 
The distribution of students, according to figures 
compiled from the catalogue especially for the 
Orient, is as follows : North Winthrop 30, South 
Winthrop 29, North Maine 32, South Maine 29, 
North Appleton 29, South Appleton 32, Alpha 
Delta Phi house 10, Psi Upsilon house 14, Delta 
Kappa Epsilon house 20, Zeta Psi house 15, Theta 
Delta Chi house 15, Delta Upsilon house 20, 
Kappa Sigma house 12, Beta Theta Pi house 18, 
Bowdoin Club 9, private houses 46. Of the 46 
who do not room on the campus, four live in other 
towns and come to Brunswick every day. 

The interest bearing funds of the College, in- 
cluding $188,000.00 belonging to the Medical 
School, at the end of each fiscal year for the last 
five years, were: May 10, 1909, $1,862,560.19; 
May 10, 1910, $2,017,733.79; May 10, 191 1, $2,- 
126,832.30; March 30, 1912, $2,149,485.86; March 
31, 1913, $2,210,503.96. 

The estimated expenses to a student have been 
unaffected by the high cost of living, the lowest 
being placed at $293.00, the average at $339-°°. 
and the liberal at $406.00. 

In and after 1914-1915 the charge for tuition 
-will be $100.00 per year, and incidental college 
charges will be reduced from $12.00 to $6.50. 

Time-honored English 5 is no longer a course 
in public speaking for Freshmen. English 5 has 

been changed to English 4, which has been 
changed to English 10. 

The requirements for admission have been 
changed slightly, the admission by examination in 
four subjects being without mention in the new 
catalogue. The New England college entrance 
certificate board, of which Bowdoin is a member, 
has been joined, according to the new catalogue, 
by Bates, Colby, Massachusetts Agricultural Col- 
lege and Middlebury. 

Assistant Librarian Gerald G. Wilder has had 
charge of the publishing of the new issue of the 


The Y. M. C. A. is planning a series of meet- 
ings to be held in January which will be of great 
importance and interest to Bowdoin men. The 
purpose of these meetings will be to bring the 
question of the Christian life before the students, 
to answer some of the questions which trouble 
most college men, and to rouse the student body 
to higher ideals in everyday campus life. The 
speakers at these meetings will be men who al- 
ready have a hold on Bowdoin men, President 
Fitch of Andover Theological Seminary, who will 
be the College Preacher on Jan. 11, and Dave 
Porter '06, Bowdoin's first Rhodes scholar and 
probably the best known of our younger alumni. 
One of the most helpful parts of the meetings will 
be the private conferences with these men. The 
meetings are planned for Jan. 7, 8 and 9.

<&luo anD Council Meetings 

The meeting of the Student Council which was 
to be held this week, has been postponed until 
after the recess. The date of election of assistant 
football manager is to be decided then. 

There will be a meeting of the Bugle Board, 
Tuesday evening, Dec. 2, at 7 o'clock at the Delta 
Upsilon house. 

A joint meeting of the Orient and Quill 
Boards will be held this afternoon at 4.30 in the 
Verein Room. 

A meeting of the Board of Managers was held 
Friday afternoon in their room in the Gym. 

Junior and Senior elections will probably be 
held after Thanksgiving. 

The Biology Club met last Friday evening, 
Nov. 21. After listening to a lecture, delivered 



in the Zoology lecture room, on "The Mammals 
of New England Smaller Than the Grey Squir- 
rel," by Dr. Copeland, the members adjourned to 
the Beta Theta Pi house. Here a short business 
meeting was held and refreshments were served. 
The election of officers was postponed on account 
of the small attendance. 

The Deutscher Verein met last Wednesday 
night with Professor Files and enjoyed a most in- 
teresting meeting. Professor Files gave the club 
a talk upon Strange Places in Europe which he 
illustrated with a number of beautiful stereopti- 
con views. Refreshments were served.

In accordance with the custom after Thanks- 
giving vacation, the Orient will not be published 
next Tuesday. 

Joe Finneran, last year's track coach, has been 
attracting attention around Boston through his 
prowess as a golf player. 

The newly constructed fence on the north side 
of the campus is an invaluable aid in locating the 
College these dark nights. 

The Bible study normal class met Friday in- 
stead of Monday night, owing to the absence of 
Professor McConaughy on Monday. 

Lewis '15 attended the Hebron Academy foot- 
ball banquet Wednesday night. Baker, captain of 
Maine for next year, was also present. 

The Psi U's beat the Dekes 6 to I at tag foot-

Elwee's passes and Boardman's stockings. 

The course in English 10, which is offered as a 
continuation of English 3, will consider earlier 
essays than has been the custom in past years. 

Physical training commences Monday, Dec. I. 
Up to a late hour before going to press the hours 
for baseball and track work had not been an- 
nounced. The usual rules about spiked shoes and 
gymnasium clothes will prevail. 

The first of the trials for reader of the musical 

clubs was held last week. There were seven can- 
didates present. No final choice has as yet been 
made for the position however, two men from the 
seven being retained until the final trial which is 
to be held immediately following the Thanksgiv- 
ing recess. The names of the two who have been 
retained have been withheld by request. 

Joe Knowles, the Boston artist who recently 
spent two months in the woods as a primeval man, 
and who spoke at the rally before the Tufts game, 
has written to a Brunswick friend as follows : "I 
am very sorry that Bowdoin did not win the game 
Saturday, but comparing the two teams, I would 
say that the Brunswick boys certainly did put up 
a very good battle and I want to congratulate 
them for the manly way in which they played 
their game." 

Professor William T. Foster, professor of Eng- 
lish and Argumentation at Bowdoin from 1905 to 
1910, was at College Sunday. Professor Foster, 
who is East on a lecture tour, is now president of 
Reed College in Portland, Ore. This college was 
founded under conditions different from those of 
the ordinary institution. It has no intercollegiate 
athletics, no fraternities and is co-educational. A 
candidate for admission must pass all subjects, 
no conditions being allowed.

NO. 21 


1. Each student is required to have completed 
before graduation one major and two minors. 
(Definitions: a major is a subject pursued 
through three consecutive years, or the equiva- 
lent of same. A minor is a subject pursued 
through two consecutive years.) 

2. The following courses may count for ma- 
jors in the different departments : 

Biology; all courses offered. 

Chemistry; I, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; or 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 

Economics ; 1, 2, 5 and any three others. 

English; 6 courses in addition to 1, 2 and 4; 
but the courses in Debating not to count. 

French ; 6 advanced courses ; 1 and 2 not to 

German; 6 advanced courses; 1 and 2 not to 

Greek; A, B, 1, 2, 3, 4; or 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; or I, 

2, 3, 4, 7, 8.

4. Each student must also elect his two minors 
by the end of his Sophomore year, and must sub- 
mit them, for advice, to the Department in which 
his major is to be taken. 

5. These regulations shall go into effect with 
the Class of 1916. 

The Dean will be very glad to explain these 
regulations to any student who may have ques- 
tions to ask concerning them. 

Charles R. Clason, Bates '10, has been an 
nounced as the next Rhodes Scholar from Maine. 
Clason is now in his last year at Georgetown 
University Law School and has maintained a very 
high standard of scholarship there, as he did at 

Bates. He was prominent in baseball and foot- 
ball at Bates and in 1910 won the intercollegiate 
tennis championship of Maine. The Bowdoin 
candidates for the scholarship were Neal Tuttle 
'14, Alfred E. Gray '14, and Robert P. Coffin 
'15. This is the first time since the scholarship 
was put on a competitive basis that it has not 
been won by a Bowdoin man. 


One "B" has been awarded in cross-country 
this fall. This was given to Clarence H. Crosby 
'17, who finished among the first ten in the inter- 
collegiate meet at Waterville. Earlier in the sea- 
son he won the Freshman race with M. C. I., the 
interclass cross-country race and the mile and 
half-mile in the interclass track meet. He fin- 
ished in sixth place in the Maine meet. 


Friday evening, Dec. 12, the annual Freshman- 
Sophomore Debate takes place in Hubbard Hall 
in the Debating Room. The question will be: 
Resolved : That the Commission Form of Govern- 
ment is the one best suited to American cities. 
The judges will be Doctor Little, Professor Hor- 
mell, and Professor Elliott. The presiding officer 
will be G. W. Bacon '15. The Freshman team 
consists of Blanchard, Langs, Moran, and Cros- 
by, alternate, and will support the affirmative. 
Their coach is G A. McWilliams '15. The Soph- 
omore team consists of Edwards, Foster, Say- 
ward, and Parsons, alternate. Their coach is E. 
C. Gage '14. 


About fifteen men have reported for Fencing 
practice under Instructor Maroney. Of the last 
year's team, Floyd '15, manager of this year's 
team, is the only man left in college, so practically 
a whole new team must be developed. Payson '14, 
Porritt '15, and Pope '14 were promising mem- 
bers of last year's squad. The other men who are 
out for the team are Mitchell '14, Coffin '15, Cut- 
ler '15, Robinson '15, Perkins '15, Hastings '15, 
Prescott '15, Bridge '15, C. A. Hall '16, Leadbet- 
ter '16, Ramsdell '16. Practice is held every af- 
ternoon at 5.30. 



The Class of 1915 held their elections last night 
in the Y. M. C. A. Room. These were the im- 
portant elections of the year at which the class 
and Ivy Day officers were elected. The Orient 
goes to press too early to record the result. The 
class popular man is not announced until Ivy Day. 


On the evening of November 25th, the Theta 
Delta Chi and Zeta Psi fraternities held their an- 
nual Thanksgiving dances in their chapter houses. 

The committee in charge of the Theta Delta 
Chi affair was composed of Ralph L. Buell '14, 
Horace A. Barton '14, and Edward R. Elwell '15. 
The patronesses were Mrs. Frank E. Woodruff 
and Mrs. John A. Slocum, both of Brunswick. 
Chandler's orchestra of Lewiston furnished the 

The guests were the Misses Ethel Jones, Al- 
berta Robinson, Margaretta Schuyler, Gertrude 
King, Marie Heiber, Elizabeth Payson, Geraldine 
Wheeler, Dorothy True, Emily Mansfield and 
Helen Broe of Portland; Misses Pauline Herring 
and Marguerite Hutchins of Brunswick; Misses 
Katherine Torrey and Dorothy Higgins of Bath; 
and Miss Marie Fogg of Westbrook. 

The young ladies at the Zeta Psi dance were 
the Misses Katherine Vose, Clara Jones and Dor- 
othy Gilman of Portland; Misses Helen Colby, 
Gladys Umberhine, Ruth Ridley, Helen Merry- 
man, Alfaretta Graves, Alexina LaPointe, Annie 
Coffin and Sue Winchell of Brunswick; Misses 
Lena Blanchard, Ethel Libby and Gertrude Heath 
of Augusta; Miss Marjorie Hall of Dover; Miss 
Myra Marsh of Foxcroft ; and Miss Annie Owens 
of Lewiston. Special guests of the chapter were 
Dr. Alfred O. Gross of Brunswick, and Frank 
Carpenter, Colby '13. 

The committee in charge of this dance was Don 
J. Edwards '16, Frederick W. Powers '16 and 
James A. Dunn '16. The patronesses were Mrs. 
F. W. Powers, Mrs. W. H. Davis and Mrs. Al- 
fred O. Gross of Brunswick. The music was fur- 
nished by Lovell's orchestra of Brunswick. 

To furnish an incentive to a lively interest in 
track work this winter, Track Coach Magee has 
offered a cup for an inter-fraternity track meet. 
The plan as it now stands is to have dual track 
meets between the various fraternities, to culmi- 
nate in a meet between all of the fraternities. 
This will probably take place some time in Febru- 
ary. The matter has not as yet been considered by 
the Athletic Council, but the track management 

earnestly hopes that this plan will become a real- 
ity. Judicious competition is a good thing and 
this proposed plan would give a necessary and at 
the same time interesting impetus to a successful 
track season. 

The second annual Bowdoin College Interschol- 
astic Indoor Meet is to be held this year Saturday 
afternoon, Feb. 28, 19 14, and is to be conducted 
by the track management. Special prominence 
will be given to the relay races, and for this pur- 
pose out-of-state schools have been invited for 
the first time. Only the schools more prominent 
in track athletics have been invited, namely : Wor- 
cester Academy, Exeter, Andover, Arlington 
High, Boston Latin, Boston College High, 
Powder Point, Dorchester High, Waltham, Rox- 
bury Latin, Boston English High, and Maiden 


Pledges amounting to $178 secured in one even- 
ing's work at his Alma Mater will indeed cheer 
Hiwale '09. There is still a number of people 
whom the committee have yet to see. It is hoped 
and expected that the $300 mark will be reached. 

Thanks for this success is due not only to each 
and every man who canvassed the student body 
and faculty but also to the tremendous influence 
of Mr. Brewer Eddy of Boston, in his lecture and 
in his personal influence and exhortations. 

In his lecture, Mr. Eddy showed vivid pictures 
of the revolting conditions of heathenism in In- 
dia against which Mr. Hiwale is fighting. We 
should be pleased if Christians were as earnestly 
devoted to their religion as those people are to 
their blind superstition. But in the midst of this 
heathenism Christianity is slowly introducing its 
improvements in the way of medical instruction, 
schools and evangelistic meetings. 

In the American Marathi Mission Report for 
1912, Mr. Hiwale writes that his field of labor is 
nearly 70 miles in length, and 40 in breadth, and 
is thickly populated. Mr. and Mrs. Hiwale do 
their work through Bible women, boarding 
schools and village schools. During 1912, they 
presented Christ to nearly 35,000, and sold nearly 
3,000 Scripture portions. Although the people 
everywhere give them a good hearing', their lack 
of money greatly hinders their extending their 
good work. 

MacCormick '15 spoke from the standpoint of a 
student on our duty, as Bowdoin men, of support- 
ing Hiwale. 

President Hyde spoke from his remembrance 


of Hiwale as a student at Bowdoin. Although 
our language and customs were obstacles for him, 
yet by his tact and kindliness he made friends 


Professor William Hawley Davis held the first 
of his Monday night readings, Dec. 1, in Me- 
morial Hall. The attendance was large and those 
present were very pleasantly entertained. The 
subject, "Parodies and Burlesques," was dealt 
with in a humorous and entertaining way. There 
will be a reading every Monday night till the 
Christmas vacation, and Professor Davis cordial- 
ly invites all students and members of the faculty 
to attend. "Short Stories," was the subject last 
night. There will be two more lectures ; on Dec. 
15, the subject will be "Contempora'ry Verse," 
and on Dec. 22, Dickens's "Christmas Carol" will 
be read. 


At chapel Wednesday, Nov. 26, twenty-eight 
dollars were collected by the Social Service Com- 
mittee of the Y. M. C. A. Out of this sum eleven 
families were supplied with Thanksgiving din- 
ners. The size of the families varied from three 
to fourteen and in all about thirty-five poor peo- 
ple were given dinners. In each basket were 
placed such things as a chicken, potatoes, sugar, 
butter, raisins, seasoning, tea, canned goods, etc. 
The Committee consulted the Police Matron and 
was careful not to give to the same families as 
received aid from the town, the Benevolent So- 
ciety, and the Madisses Club. These societies and 
the Y. M. C. A. supplied about fifty families about 
the town. 


A year ago last June at the meeting of the 
General Alumni Association it was suggested by 
Dean Sills and others that an Alumni Council 
would be a benefit to the College. A committee 
was appointed, of which Charles T. Hawes 'j6 
was chairman, to look into the matter carefully 
and to make plans for the formation of such a 
council. The report of this committee was pre- 
sented last June at the meeting of the Alumni As- 
sociation and its suggestions were adopted. The 
council will consist of twelve members elected by 
the alumni at large, at the same time at which 
the nominations for vacancies in the Board of 
Overseers are made. The first election will take 
place next June, when all twelve members will be 
chosen. Four of these will serve for one year, 
four for two years, and four for three years ; and 

thereafter four will be chosen each year to serve 
for three years. A nominating committee was 
appointed consisting of Arthur G. Staples '82 
Lewiston; Ralph T. Parker '95, Rumford; Leon 
V. Walker '03, Portland, and Gerald G. Wilder 
'04, Brunswick. This committee will present to 
the alumni twenty-four names from which twelve 
will be chosen.

A New Custom 

A new custom was introduced into the chapel 
exercises last Sunday evening- by the replacing of 
the first anthem with a congregational hymn. It 
was well received by the student body. This 
change is in line with the gradual but sure devel- 
opment of the music of our chapel services which 
has been evident since the inauguration of the 
Music Department. We hope that the new cus- 
tom will become firmly established and will not 
be allowed to lag when the novelty wears off. 

The Alumni Council 

On account of the absence of any informal 
method of communication to the alumni of the 
College the Orient wishes to call to the attention 
of its alumni as well as undergraduate readers 
the present status of the Alumni Council. The 
condition of infrequent meeting of the alumni 
makes the launching of the project a rather slow 
process. It is, indeed, partly to remedy this hand- 
icap that the Alumni Council will find its oppor- 
tunity for serving the College. More and more 

as the College assumes new responsibilities to- 
ward the men it takes within its gates it becomes 
necessary to have a body such as the one to be 
elected at Commencement for the carrying on of 
alumni business and policies throughout the year.

The first meeting of the Chemical Club was 
held in the Chemistry Laboratory December 3. 
Sumner Mountfort '14 was elected president, Ar- 
thur G. Hildreth '16 was chosen secretary and 
treasurer and Hebron Adams '14, vice-president. 
The following men were admitted to the club : 
Bridge '15, Cole '14, Tuttle '14, Gray '14, Hey- 
wood '14, Payson '14, Wilson '14, Woodberry '14, 
Hamblen '14, Monroe '14, King '14, Lord '16 and 
Irving '16. 


The third fortnightly meeting of the Good Gov- 
ernment Club was held last Wednesday evening, 
Dec. 3, at the Beta Theta Pi house. Three new 
members were voted in: Burns '14, Callahan '14 
and Roberts '15. The chief topic which was dis- 
cussed was that of the Hetch-Hetchy valley. This 
is a most important subject for it concerns the 
water supply of San Francisco. The subject 
principally rests on the efforts of the people of 
San Francisco to get a bill through the Legisla- 
ture to use the lake situated in this valley for 
their water supply. The other topic discussed 
concerned the new phases of the Mexican situa-

The seventh and last volume of Professor 
James Schouler's "History of the United States 
under the Constitution" has made its appearance 
with the title, "The Reconstruction Period." It 
deals in detail with the administrations of John- 
son and Grant. Like the preceding volumes, it 

shows careful research, a concise style and a con- 
servative judgment. 

"The Life and Letters of John Paul Jones" by 
Mrs. Reginald deKoven is a splendid work re- 
sulting from years of research in which the 
writer has accumulated considerable new ma- 
terial. It is the most important biography of the 
great naval hero that has yet been published. 

Students who desire exact information on the 
subject will welcome "The Missions and Mission- 
aries of California," by Fr. Zephrin Engelhardt. 
Volume one is devoted to lower California and 
traces with much detail the work of the Jesuits 
and the Franciscans in that territory. 

"A New Era in Chemistry," by Harry C. Jones, 
Professor of Physical Chemistry in Johns Hop- 
kins University, takes up some of the more im- 
portant developments in General Chemistry dur- 
ing the last quarter of a century. 

"Colonial Homes and Their Furnishings," by 
Mary H. Northend, is an interesting discussion 
of the subject. It deals with both the exterior 
and the interior of the old houses of Colonial 
times. Its great feature is its wealth of illustra- 

dtluo and Council Meetings 

The Augusta Club held a short business meet-

will meet for lectures Tuesday, Thursday and 

The Bowdoin Gymnasium is mentioned in com- 
plimentary terms in a recent article by William 
F. Garcelon, former graduate treasurer of ath- 

letics at Harvard. 

The plan is to be brought before the Athletic 
Council of having all track men who compete for 
Bowdoin wear jerseys with a small "a" on each 
side of the "B-," until they have won their letters. 
The brown-tail moth nests are being removed 
from the trees on the campus and adjoining 
grounds. The use of spurs and pruning knives 
has supplanted the old method of moth balls and 

Gymnasium work began last week. The usual 
track and baseball squads are held this year, in 
addition to the regular gym, but there will be no 
football classes. Make-ups come on Tuesdays at 
3.30 and on Saturdays at 2.30. 

Joe Finneran, track coach here last spring, has 
invented a new style of bamboo vaulting pole,

The Outlook for November 15, 1913, reviews 
President Hyde's book, "The Quest of the Best," 
as follows : — This fresh addition to President 
Hyde's valuable treatises on ethics during the last 
twenty-one years is designed specially for boys, 
while in large measure applicable to girls. He 
shows that boys are naturally but pardonably bad, 
their badness being elemental goodness out of 
place and working in the wrong direction — just as 
dirt is matter out of place. Next, enforced or 
artificial goodness is unstable and unreal, and yet 
a stage of moral discipline that cannot be skipped 
in the development of real goodness enlisted in an 



earnest quest of the best. How to allure the boy 
to this quest, keep him in it, and bring him back 
to it when gone astray, is presented as the great 
ethical problem, and is instructively answered. A 
peculiar interest and value of this treatise is in its 
having been collaborated by President Hyde, first 
with his class of Bowdoin College students, and 
afterward with several hundred experts in work 
for boys, to whom he presented it in lectures last 
May for criticism and suggestions, to which he 
acknowledges much indebtedness. No more help- 
ful book exists for those who have to do with the 
training of boys. Grown-up readers will find 
that it puts them to confession with a thorough- 
ness that is good for conscience. 

Professor McLean was suddenly called to his 
home in Illinois last week by the serious illness of 
his father. 

Professor McConaughy will speak Friday even- 
ing at a union meeting in Westbrook under the 
auspices of the Westbrook Boys' Federation. 

Cbe Otficr Colleges 

Twelve American universities have endowment 
funds of over five million dollars. 

Harvard's football team cost $35,000 to develop 
this fall. Coach's salaries amounted to $15,000. 

Radcliffe and Simmons College girls are said 
to have taken up the fad of wearing monocles. 

The Dramatic Club at the University of Maine 
has selected Moliere's comedy, "Les Femmes 
Savantes" for presentation this winter. 

McGill University intends to erect a series of 
dormitories to accommodate all the students, and 
to cost approximately two million dollars. 

Oxford University has decided to send a relay 
team to compete in the annual relay carnival to 
be held in April at the University of Pennsyl- 

The Williams College student body recently 
voted "to adopt the system of keeping the coach 
off the bench during baseball games." 

One thousand eighty-five students have en- 
rolled in the free correspondence courses in agri- 
culture given this year by the University of Cali- 
fornia. Six agricultural correspondence courses 
are now offered, and others are being prepared. 

Seventy-five out 'of 180 students at Trinity Col- 
lege have pledged themselves to take an active 
part in the work of their recently organized De- 
bating Association. 

Two hundred men at the University of Penn- 
sylvania have volunteered for social service work 
this year. The work includes first-aid work, gym- 
nasium classes, a review of prison conditions, and 
the teaching of English to foreigners. 

Books on religious subjects seem to be in great- 
est demand by general readers in the University 
of Minnesota library. During a recent week more 
books on religion than books on general litera- 
ture were requested. 

Selections from Chinese operas on native in- 
struments and a Chinese playlet will be the fea- 
tures of a reception to be given by the Cosmopoli- 
tan Club of the University of Pennsylvania to- 
morrow evening. 

Harvard and Washington and Jefferson were 
the only large college teams of the East to go 
through the season without a defeat. The total 
scores of both teams for the season follow : Har- 
vard, 225, opponents, 21 ; Washington and Jeffer- 
son, 374, opponents, 13. 

A movement to limit the membership of Uni- 
versity debating teams to undergraduates is on 
foot at Harvard. Such a step has already been 
taken at Princeton, and it is likely that both Har- 
vard and Yale will follow. 

The Yale Alumni Advisory Board is consider- 
ing the advisability of establishing at Yale a Uni- 
versity Union similar in scope to the Oxford and 
Harvard Unions. It is estimated that the pro- 
posed Union would cost at least half a million 
dollars to erect. The student body is very much 
interested in the project. , 

At the University of Pennsylvania the required 
physical training has been placed upon a new 
basis. Instead of the regular gymnastic exer- 
cises the classes are required to spend two hours 
a week in any one of the following sports : basket- 
ball, track, cross-country, swimming, or walking. 
In basketball the men are divided into teams 
which play two games each week. In order to 
sustain interest in this part of the work, the two 
teams having the highest scores play a champion- 
ship game at the end of the season, and the win- 
ning team is awarded a shield inscribed with the 
players' names, to be hung in the gymnasium. 
Prizes are also offered in the other sports. 

Because he violated the University of Chicago's 
tradition that all seniors shall wear moustaches, 
by shaving his off, a prominent member of the 
senior class was ducked in the swimming tank in 
the gymnasium. Any senior who is unable to 
grow a presentable moustache on or before a cer- 
tain time is forced to pay the same penalty. 

The University of Oregon has decided to try 
the experiment of training its football players 
throughout the entire college year. During the 
winter and spring the candidates will be required 
to practice three hours under the direction of the 
head coach. Football, wrestling, boxing, basket- 
ball and general gymnastics will constitute the

'52. — The death of John White Chickering oc- 
curred at his home in Washington, Nov. 8. Mr. 
Chickering was eighty-three years old. His death 
leaves only three members of his college class, 
General Joshua L. Chamberlain and Lewis Pierce 
of Portland and George H. Theobold of Rich- 

Mr. Chickering had taught in Portland, Bucks- 
port, Foxcroft and Corinna. He was graduated 
at Bangor Theological Seminary in i860, and was 
pastor of several churches until he became pro- 
fessor of Natural History at Gallandet College, 
where he remained thirty years until his retire- 
ment in 1900. 

'58.— The Rev. Frank Sewall, D.D., is pastor of 
the New Church, Washington, D. C. 

'64. — Hon. Enoch Foster, who has for years 
been a leader of the Maine Bar, died at his home 
in Portland after a long and serious illness. 

The renowned lawyer was a native of Newry, 
Oxford County. He fitted for college at Gould's 
Academy, Bethel, and at the Maine State Semi- 
nary, Lewiston. He enlisted in the 13th Maine 
Regiment and served as first lieutenant in the 
Third Regiment in the Department of the Gulf, 
under Butler and Banks. He studied law in the 
office of Hon. Reuben Foster, Waterville, and 
was graduated at the Albany Law School in the 

class of 1865. In the same year he was admitted 
both to the New York Bar in Albany, and to the 
Kennebec County Bar in Augusta. In 1868 he 
was elected county attorney for Oxford County, 
the position which he held until 1874, when he 
was elected state senator for two years. From 
1884 to 1898 he was a justice of the Supreme Ju- 
dicial Court of Maine. He then came to Port- 
land, where, on Feb. 15th, 1899, he became the 
senior partner of the firm of Foster and Hersey, 
which continued until Nov. 15th, 1905, when it 
was dissolved, and he, with his son Robert C. Fos- 
ter, formed the firm of Foster & Foster. 

Hon. Enoch Foster is survived by his wife, nee 
Sarah Chapman, of Bethel, and his one son. 

Judge Foster early made a reputation as a 
strong and ready debater, especially as a great 
jury lawyer. His command of words was enorm- 
ous and precise. He was conspicuous in cross 
examining witnesses. During his service on the 
Supreme Court bench, he became noted as one of 
the best judges Maine has ever had for expedit- 
ing the trial of cases. His rulings were always 
promptly given and strictly adhered to. His writ- 
ten opinions possess exemplary strength of dic- 
tion and expression. 

Judge Foster was a Mason, belonging to some 
bodies in Oxford County and to Portland Com- 
mandery of Knights Templar. He was also a 
member of the Grand Army of the Republic and 
of the Loyal Legion, as well as of the 13th Maine 
Infantry Association. He was for many years an 
honorary member of the Maine Commercial 
Traveller's Association. The field of law loses a 
valuable man in Hon. Enoch Foster. 

'64. — John Green Wight died at his home in 
Clinton, N. Y., Nov. 23, his death coming as a re- 
sult of over-exertion from a long walk. He was 
born in Gilead, March 2, 1842. He served in the 
navy in 1862 and 1863, but received his diploma 
as of the class of 1864. 

Mr. Wight was a teacher in Bridgton Academy 
in 1865 ; Cooperstown Seminary, New York, in 
1865-67; principal of Bridgton Academy, 1867- 
70; of Union School and Seminary in Coopers- 
town in 1870-90; Worster High School, 1890-94; 
Girls' High School, Philadelphia, 1894-97; Wad- 
leigh High School, New York, 1897-1910, and had 
been a resident of Clinton, N. Y., for several 
years. He received the degrees of A.M. and 
L.D. from Bowdoin, and Ph.D. from Hamilton

Wallace O. Clement, who has been selected to 
coach the Bowdoin nine this year, is a man of 
wide experience and much ability. He attended 
Edward Little High School for four years and 
was captain of both baseball and football there. 
He attended Tufts College for one year and made 
his letter in both baseball and football there. He 
left college about ten years ago. For some time 
he played on the Jersey City team of the Inter- 
national League, and later he was drafted by the 
Brooklyn Nationals. More recently he has been 
playing in the New York State League. Mr. 
Clement is at present in Revere, Mass., and is ex- 
pected to take up his new duties here about the 
first of April. 

As a result of the trials for the Masque and

held to elect the other member. 

The result of the election of Class Popular 
Man will be kept secret until Ivy Day. 


The Class of 1914 held their annual election of 
officers last night. The result of the election will 
be announced in the next issue of the Orient, the 
current paper having gone to press too early to 
record the result. 


The Sophomores won the Freshman-Sopho- 
more Debate which was held last Friday evening, 
in the Debating Room, Hubbard Hall, un- 
der the auspices of the Bowdoin Debating Coun- 
cil. The subject of debate was : "Resolved, That 
the commission form of government is the one 
best suited to American cities." The Freshmen 
had the affirmative side and upheld the common 
commission form of government with five mem- 
bers. The Sophomores in opposition did not cling 
to the bi-cameral or alderman-council system but 
advanced a new form which they claimed better 
than either. This is the managerial system, com- 
mon in England and Germany, and based on the 
commission form. It has a commission of five 
members who elect a properly trained man who 
assumes the entire control of the city's affairs 
and is answerable directly to the commission. 
The speakers for the affirmative were Moran, 
Blanchard and Langs, with Crosby as alternate; 
for the negative, Edwards, Sayward and Foster, 
with Parsons as alternate. The judges, Prof. 
Elliott, Prof. Hormell and Prof. Little, were 
unanimous in their choice of a winner. G. W. 
Bacon '15 presided. McWilliams '15 coached the 
affirmative and Gage '14 the negative. 


A very attractive Bowdoin calendar has been 
published under the management of Eaton '14 and 
Roberts '15. The designing and printing was 
done by E. A. Wright of Philadelphia and is an 
excellent piece of work. 

The cover is of brown limp leather with a col- 



ored picture of the Class of '75 Gates as an in- 
sert and the Bowdoin seal embossed. The calen- 
dar proper is done on sepia paper, and contains 
pictures of President Hyde, campus views, the 
fraternity houses, the athletic teams and various 
other college organizations. 


At a meeting of the Bowdoin Interscholastic 
Baseball League at the Zeta Psi house Saturday, 
ten teams entered the league for the coming sea- 
son. The teams have been divided into two 
classes as follows : Class A, Edward Little High 
of Auburn, South Portland High, Deering High 
of Portland, Brunswick High and Rockland 
High ; Class B, Cony High of Augusta, Lewiston 
High, Lisbon Falls High, Leavitt Institute of 
Turner Center, Hallowell High. Lisbon Falls 
and Rockland are new teams in the league. This 
is the first time for a number of years that Leav- 
itt Institute has been in the league. None of the 
eight teams of last year have dropped out. 

Dunn '16, assistant manager of the Bowdoin 
Varsity baseball team, had charge of making up 
the schedule, which will start April 18 and will 
end June 6. The winners in each class will play 
for the championship. 

Among the umpires who have been selected are 
Lew Brown '14, Mountfort '14, Stetson '15, Beal 
'16 and Twaddle, Medic '16. 

Last Tuesday evening the Freshman Religious 
Committee met at the home of Professor McCon- 
aughy. C. A. Crosby was elected chairman. It 
was decided to collect from the various houses 
and dormitories old clothing for Dr. GrenfelFs 
and other missions. H. Foster '16 told .of the 
clothing collected last year and the good it did. 
A. Merrill '14 spoke of the work of the Boys' 
Club now meeting in the old gymnasium. The 
club, which has an enrollment of about one hun- 
dred young Brunswick boys, will probably be 
divided into groups of ten each, each group meet- 
ing once every two weeks. Beginning about the 
middle of January, some of the men will have op- 
portunity to meet with these groups. Others will

sections. A relay squad of twenty-four men will 
work out under Trainer Magee every afternoon 
at 4.30, in preparation for the race at Boston in 
February. Those selected are: Fuller '16, Ire- 
land '16, Fox '14, Ogle '17, Pierce '17, Powers '16, 
Wright '14, McWilliams '15, Prescott '15, Rich- 
ardson '15, Stetson '15, Roberts '15, Balfe '17,

Beal '16, Eastman '15, Colbath '17, McElwee '16, 
Wing '15, Bond '17, C. Hall '16. 

Any others are urged to come out for the team 
but these are the only ones who will be allowed to 
substitute relay work for regular gym. 

This leaves about thirty men in the regular 
track squad. These will train for the interclass 
meets during the winter and for the intercolle- 
giate meet in the spring. 

Fifteen men from each class taking regular 
gymnasium work receive thirty minutes instruc- 
tion under Trainer Magee after their regular 
work. In this way all track material in the col- 
lege is available. The men taking track work 
will have soccer part of the time while the relay 
men will have a great deal of outdoor work. 

Of last year's relay team, Smith '15 and Mc- 
Williams '15 are left in College.

October 31, 1913. 
President of the Masque and Gown, 

Bowdoin College, 
Brunswick, Maine. 
Dear Sir: — 

It is my hope some day to see the Masque and 
Gown of Bowdoin College a much more fully- 
rounded organization than at present, engaged in 
a wide range of activities. I hope to see it break- 
ing away from the over-worked repertoire dear 
to amateur dramatic clubs (it made an admirable 
start in that direction last year) and turning its 
attention to more serious work, namely, the pro- 
duction of little known plays of high merit, the 
translation and presentation of foreign plays, and 
a more careful and earnest interpretation of 
Shakespeare than has been possible heretofore. I 
hope to see it occasionally bringing well known 
players and authorities on the stage here to lec- 
ture. Above all I hope to see it working in close 
conjunction with the English Department and en- 
couraging Bowdoin men, undergraduates and 
alumni to try their hands at play writing. 

The value to the college of such an organiza- 
tion can hardly be over-estimated. Primarily, 
the college would gain distinction in a department 
of education that is attracting more and more at- 
tention each vear. Anv effort toward a wider 



education proceeding from an institution of high 
standing invariably brings desirable prominence 
to the institution, and a serious study of the 
stage and what is produced on the stage must 
surely be considered such an effort. Regarding 
the benefit to be derived by the individual there 
is no need to sepak, the benefit is so apparent. 
Most students are interested in the stage, few will 
not be aroused to a greater interest by a study of 
the stage. To some a new field of labor may be 
opened; as a result society will benefit, if not by 
actual contributions, at least by a broadened cul- 

Seriously, the field open to the Masque and 
Gown is a wonderful one, offering splendid re- 
wards for enthusiastic work. It is by no means 
an untried field, even in the case of college dra- 
matic clubs (witness the work of the Yale and 
Harvard Clubs), but it is large enough for all. 
And serious work in that field means a service 
to the college fully as great, at least, as any that 
can be rendered by college paper, musical club or, 
I hardly dare say it, athletic team. 

To be sure, such an end as I have in mind can 
not be gained in one year or even ten, but a start 
can at least be made. The end is well worth the 

In the hope of encouraging the Masque and 
Gown to develop along lines other than those of a 
producing club, I agree to present to the society 
a number of books dealing with the stage, players' 
editions of dramatic texts, as well as technical 
works, to form the nucleus of a library to be 
known as the Joseph Jefferson Library in mem- 
ory of the kindliest and most lovable of that 
group of American actors characterized by Wil- 
liam Winter as "players whose presence made an 
audience sweetly and comfortably glad." 

My first contribution must necessarily be small, 
but I promise to renew it each year and to in- 
crease it as my means permit. I hope, however, 
that many others besides myself, alumni and 
friends of the college, as well as undergraduates, 
will contribute an occasional volume to the col- 
lection, otherwise its purpose must fail. 

These books may be housed in the college li- 
brary or in such place as the Masque and Gown 
deems best until the time comes when the society 
shall occupy quarters of its own, either in a Bow- 
doi'n Union, or in some similar building. It is de- 
sirable that these books be accessible on occasion 
to all students, but I wish them to be primarily 
the property of the Masque and Gown. I shall 
endeavor to present works that are not contained 
in the college collections, and my hope is that 
some day the Masque and Gown of Bowdoin Col- 

lege will be famous for its Joseph Jefferson Li- 
brary and the use that it makes of it. 

I trust that my motive in making this communi- 
cation will not be misunderstood. I sincerely be- 
lieve that the Masque and Gown can be made one 
of the most unique and powerful college dramatic 
societies in America. Such a distinction can not 
be gained easily; the effort calls for hard work 
along many lines. I have merely tried to make a 
little start along one of the lines. 



This week Thursday at 7.00 p. m. in the Y. M. 
C. A. room Fred H. Rindge will speak on the 
"College Man and the Laborer." Mr. Rindge is 
a Columbia graduate who has been all over the 
country organizing industrial work. He has vis- 
ited all the other colleges in this state, and at 
Bates started many classes in English for for- 
eigners. He will speak to the economics class, 
and investigate conditions here. Before the 
opening of the meeting Prof. Wa'ss will play two 
or three selections on an Ochestral loaned by Mr. 
Walker of Portland. 

There will be a meeting of the Y. M. C. A. 
Cabinet on Thursday at 8.00 p. m. at the house 
of Prof. McConaughy, 3A McClellan Street. 

This afternoon the Freshman Religious Com- 
mittee will collect old clothes and old magazines 
from the college and from the faculty. The 
clothing will be sent to Dr. Grenfell's Mission in 
Labrador to be used by the Labrador fishermen. 
The magazines will be sent to the state prison at 
Thomaston and to the Sailors' Mission at 

Last evening the Committee of 79 organized at 
the Delta Upsilon house. Prof. McConaughy ex- 
plained the plans for the Fitch-Porter meetings, 
Jan. 7-1 1, and briefly reported for the committees 
organized — Publicity, Speakers, Meetings, Recep- 
tion, Attendance, Conference. President Hyde 
spoke briefly, emphasizing the opportunity these 
meetings present and the various activities of the 
Committee of 79. The officers are : chairman, 
Leigh ' 14; sub-chairmen, Simpson '14, McWil- 
liams '15, Brown '14, A. Merrill ' 14, MacCormick 
'15, and Foster '16. 


In the last number of the Orient, through in- 
adventure, History was left out of the list of de- 
partments in which majors may be taken. All 
courses in History and Political Science are to 
count for a major, except History 1 and 2.

The Gift to Masque and Gown 

We print in this issue a communication from a 
prominent undergraduate sent to the Masque and 
Gown which will be read with interest and delight 
by all who have an interest in Bowdoin's dra- 
matics. The gift to the Club, which has been 
formally accepted, is unique and will have un- 
doubted benefits to dramatics and Masque and 
Gown in years to come. The suggestions for dra- 
matic activity at Bowdoin have been adopted by 
this year's organization as its definite program 
and will be followed as fully as may be. The im- 
provements noted can not be accomplished in one 
season but it is safe to assume that the impetus 
gained by the gift and accompanying letter will 
result in a higher tone in the club's activities this 
year and in the more distant future. In this con- 
nection we would add to the student body in gen- 
eral that such organizations are distinctly the in- 
terests of Bowdoin undergraduates ; that member- 
ship in them is always open ; that suggestions are 
always welcome. 

The Annual Collections 

To a large number of the undergraduate body 
who have not given the matter much thought, the 
collections taken by the Christian Association at 
Thanksgiving and Christmas and the old clothes 
collection may seem like formal, perfunctory 
"charity." There is, however, a real need for 
such gifts as the students make and the Associa- 
tion is performing a distinct service in organizing 
these contributions. For any who may have 
doubts as to the need served by our little gifts we 
commend an interview with the chairman of the 
committee in charge of distribution or an investi- 
gation of the use of the Christmas collection. In 
the past the best of spirit has been shown by the 
student body at such times and it is hoped that 
this year generosity and the spirit of Christmas 
will be more than ever evident. 

As to Gym Work 

Might we say just a word as to the change 
which is more than ever evident in the gymnasium 
work in our New Gym? With our splendid facil- 
ities, with instructors expert in their line and en- 
thusiastic, it is no wonder that there should be 
prevalent a notable improvement in the interest 
displayed by the students. There seems to be 
rapidly developing a new attitude toward this 
part of our curriculum and many can be found 
who are glad that there is four years of compul- 
sory work in this department. As has been said 
so often we get out of this work just what we 
put into it and when good physical development 
is so much worth while, why should we not all 
be anxious to put into the obtaining of it the re- 
quired interest and enthusiasm ? 


The intimate connection of the Church on the 
Hill with the College makes the news of the com- 
ing of Reverend Chauncey W. Goodrich to this 
church of interest to Bowdoin men. 

Mr. Goodrich comes to Brunswick highly rec- 
ommended by all who have come in touch with 
him. He graduated from Yale in 1886 and for 
one year after that, served as graduate secretary 
of the Yale Y. M. C. A. He was first assistant 
pastor of the Madison Square Presbyterian 
Church, New York, next he was at Orange, N. J., 
for a period of six years, and then became pastor 
of the Bolton Avenue Presbyterian Church in 
Cleveland, Ohio, where he remained for three 
years. For nearly six years following he was 
pastor of the American Church in Paris. 

Mr. Goodrich returned to this country in 191 1 



and since then has been assistant pastor of the 
Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church in New York 

Mr. Goodrich seems admirably fitted for the 
pastorate of this church and for work in a col- 
lege town.

On Friday, Dec. 12, the Classical Club held its 
second meeting of the year. There was an open 
illustrated lecture on Athens in the Classical 
room by Dr. Arthur Cooley who has travelled ex- 
tensively in Greece. After the lecture the mem- 
bers of the Classical Club met at Professor 
Nixon's where they held a short business meeting 
and informally met Dr. Cooley. Professors John-

The Athletic Council, at a meeting last week, 
approved of an alumni baseball game to be played 
in Commencement Week, and of the Tufts foot- 
ball game in Medford as the last game of our 
season. The Council was in favor of a tennis 
tournament with Tufts, but this is yet to be ap- 
proved of by the faculty. The sentiment of the 
Council was opposed to the inter-fraternity track 
meets. The outdoor interscholastic meet is to be 
held on Memorial Day.

'57. — The Rev. Thomas Kimball Noble, one of 
the oldest Congregational clergymen of the coun- 

try, died at his home in Washington, Oct. 22, af- 
ter an illness of about six weeks. Dr. Noble was 
a native of Norway, Me., and had lived in Wash- 
ington more than ten years. He was eighty-one 
years old. 

Dr. Noble was educated at the Norway Lib- 
eral Institute and at Bowdoin College, and was 
graduated at Bangor Theological Seminary dur- 
ing the Civil War. He was at the front for a 
while. After graduation he was ordained pastor 
of the Congregational Church at Winthrop, Me., 
but soon commenced service in the United States 
Christian Commission, first as a delegate, then as 
an agent. Later he was a chaplain in the Union 

After the war he became chief superintendent 
of the educational work of the Freedman's Bu- 
reau in Kentucky. In 1869 Dr. Noble became pas- 
tor of the Pilgrim Church in Cleveland, Ohio, and 
while there was secretary for Ohio of the Na- 
tional Church Building Society. In 1872 he ac- 
cepted the pastorate of the Plymouth Church, in 
San Francisco, where he served fourteen years. 

Dr. Noble resigned his pastorate in 1886 and 
traveled abroad, later coming to Washington, 
where he acted as pastor of the Eastern Presby- 
terian Church. In 1890 he became pastor of the 
First Congregational Church of Norwalk, Conn., 
and remained there ten years. After leaving Nor- 
walk in 1900, Dr. Noble traveled in Europe and 
in the Holy Land, and then came to Washington. 
Dr. Noble leaves a wife, Mrs. Esther Frothing- 
ham Bradbury Noble, and a daughter, Mrs. Wini- 
fred W. Whitman, of Alameda, Cal. He was a 
member of the Grand Army of the Republic. 

'57. — Benjamin Wisner Pond, after a service 
of a little more than forty years in the United 
States Patent Office at Washington, resigned his 
position recently and received a personal letter 
from the President of the United States, express- 
ing his "appreciation of a long and valuable ser- 
vice, and of the high sense of public duty" that 
led him to retire. In his letter of resignation 
Pond had declared his belief that the important 
work of his division might be better handled by 
a younger man. 

President Wilson's letter said in part, "I learn 
that you have tendered your resignation as a 
member of the Examining Corps of the Patent 
Office on which you have served for more than 
forty years. It is a pleasure to me to express my 
appreciation of your long and valuable service, 
and of the high sense of public duty which now 
leads you to retire. * * * I hope you will derive 
pleasure and comfort from the good wishes of 
your associates which will follow you into your 


Mr. Pond was born and prepared for college in 
Bangor, and after graduation at Bowdoin he fol- 
lowed his forbears into the ministry where for 
several years he filled the pulpits of certain Con- 
gregational churches in Maine, Massachusetts 
and Vermont. He had been graduated at the 
Bangor Theological Seminary in 1861. 

His health becoming impaired in ministerial 
work, he found it necessary to seek a change of 
scene and climate. Having received the appoint- 
ment of Supervisor in the educational work of the 
Freedman's Bureau at Washington, he spent some 
years in travelling through various sections of the 
South looking after the established schools for 
the colored people there. This work completed, 
he was hesitating about returning to the minis- 
try, when, chancing to be in Washington in 1873 
he called on his old college intimate, General Ellis 
Spear, Bowdoin '58, and an Overseer of the Col- 
lege, at that time Assistant Commissioner of Pa- 
tents and later Commissioner in Chief. Spear 
said to him : "Ben, in spite of all your ancestry, 
which suggests theology, you were born with the 
head of a mechanician, and you had better stop 
here and examine engineering patents. We want 
men who understand machinery, as I know you 

Out of thirty-three candidates who took the 
very severe examination for the position, four 
passed, Pond being one of them. He was at once 
appointed to the engineering division of the Pa- 
tent Office as third assistant examiner, and within 
four years, in August, 1877, was made primary 
examiner of the department over which he had 
full charge for thirty-six years with a reputation 
akin to fame. In commenting on Mr. Pond's re- 
tirement to the writer of this sketch, General 
Spear said : "His service and record in the Pa- 
tent Office during the forty years has been of the 
best, and a credit to Bowdoin College and his 

'64. — Dr. Wight and Judge Enoch Foster, who 
have just died, were classmates at Bowdoin and 
were the only representatives of their class at the 
Commencement of 1912. 

It is safe to say that during his forty-five years 
of active work in teaching, Dr. Wight's work was 
as successful and his personality as beloved as 
that of any secondary teacher in the country. 
Aside from his regular work, he found time to 
make excursions into the field of literature. Since 
he retired in failing health, he has edited a series 
of essays appended to his autobiography compiled 
during the active years of his life, and this last 
summer, he published a remarkable collection of 
quotations noted and collected during his fifty 
years of extended reading. While Dr. Wight's 

career is not as spectacular as that of some of 
Bowdoin's graduates, it is true that his sphere of 
usefulness is very great and that his personality 
will always live among those who knew him. 

'77. — Miss Marie Ahinghito Peary, known as 
the "snow baby," has just returned from a sum- 
mer spent in Geneva, Switzerland, where she has 
been studying. She is now with her parents, Ad- 
miral and Mrs. Robert Edwin Peary, who have 
taken a house for the winter at 1829 Belmont 
Road, Portland, Me. 

'77. — Curtis A. Perry spent a short time in 
Maine before going to San Francisco by the way 
of the Canadian Rockies. He was to sail the lat- 
ter part of November for Honolulu, where he is 
to spend the winter. Mr. Perry's bungalow in 
Bridgton has been closed but he is to return to 
Maine in time to superintend the spring planting 
of the Roadside Gardens, in which he is greatly 

'05. — The Oxford University Press has recent- 
ly issued an edition of Theodore Storm's Pscyche, 
prepared for the use of college classes by Dr. 
Ewald Eiserhardt and Dr. Ray W. Pettengill, of 
Harvard. This attractive volume in blue has an 
interesting sketch of the author's life and literary 
career, a full vocabulary, scholarly notes, and a 
series of exercises in English for translation into 
German, based upon the text of the original. 

'05. — Ralph S. Robinson, principal for the past 
six years of Thomaston High School, died at his 
former home in Warren, Dec. 9, aged nearly 35. 
He belonged to Beta Theta Pi fraternity. After 
graduation he taught at the high school at North- 
east Harbor for nearly two years, and was then 
elected principal at Thomaston, where he was the 
organizer of the High School Alumni Associa- 
tion. He served for two terms as master of St. 
George Lodge A. F. & A. M., and was a member 
of Henry Knox Chapter, R. A. M., of Thomaston, 
and King Hiram Council, S. and S. M., of Rock- 
land. He is survived by his wife, formerly Julia 

'09. — On Nov. 27 Mr. and Mrs. Charles E. 
Foss of Portland, Me., announced the engage- 
ment of their daughter, Miss Dorothy, to Ralph 
O. Brewster. Miss Foss is a graduate of Welles- 
ley in the class of 191 1. 

'13. — Two members of this class are doing good 
work in Worcester, Mass. Willis Elden Dodge is 
more than earning his salary at the Worcester 
Academy. Albert E. Parkhurst is learning the 
business of the Norton Company, the largest 
manufacturing concern of grinding wheels in the 
world, and one of the most efficiently managed 
concerns of any description in the country.

James Plaisted Webber, popular instructor of 
English at Phillips-Exeter Academy, comes to 
Bowdoin on January 6, 1914, the opening day of 
the new term, to give his recital on "Hamlet." 
The meeting is under the auspices of the Ibis and 



is open to the public. Mr. Webber, since grad- 
uating from the College in 1900, has been very 
successful in interpretation of Shakespeare's 

Some happy, far-off day when the literary in- 
terests of the College will seem of real import- 
ance to the undergraduate body, some day when 
the students of Bowdoin, recalling their literary 
heritage, will not feel agrieved if by some acci- 
dent a reading by a distinguished foreign poet is 
scheduled for an evening before a football game, 
some reviewer picking up the latest copy of the 
Quill may pen some such words as these : "The 
literary paper of the college seems to be making 
real progress : only the editorials are written by 
the editors." In the meantime, facing conditions 
as we find them and not shutting our eyes to the 
fact that very few men here care for literature, 
we should feel all the more grateful to the small 
gioup of editors who in the language of the first 
Quill editorial, dated January 1897, see k no empty 
praise, but aim "to rekindle the fast fading flame 
of Bowdoin's literary life, if such is capable of 
again burning brightly." To illustrate how much 
work has fallen to the editors, a hasty glance 
through the seven numbers of the present volume 
shows that of thirty-seven prose articles and 
poems, only five have been contributed by men 
who are not now, or who have not been editors of 
the Quill. Of these one is by a graduate, one by a 
senior. The contributions to the present volume 
from those of the three lower classes who are not 
on the board consist of one prose article and two 
sonnets. This is hardly a cheering record. 

In the face of such indifference the present 
board has done well indeed: it has maintained a 
high standard and has shown that its members 
possess versatility. The November Quill de- 
serves commendation. Mr. Robinson's work 
shows promise; and it is only fair to state here 
that his college friends hope to see him within the 
next few years win his spurs in the literary world 
beyond our college walls. The essay on Steven- 
son is thoughtful and mature and is another trib- 
ute to that admirable and courageous author who 
has won the affection of American youth. Gettys- 
burg is a longer poem than Mr. Robinson has so 
far printed in the Quill: it is on the whole admir- 
ably sustained and in many passages has the true 
lyrical lilt and real poetic imagination. The other 
piece of verse in this number is a sonnet by Mr. 
Achorn of real feeling and beauty. Mr. Sweet's 
Goodwin Prize Essay on Chesterton is rigorously 
phrased and makes excellent use of quotation. 

Mr. Gibson's story is well handled and interest- 
ing. It is pleasant to note throughout this num- 
ber a certain maturity of style, excellent literary 
taste and some unusually thoughtful and artistic 

When one reflects how excellent the Quill is, 
despite very few contributions and despite gen- 
eral undergraduate indifference, it is hard to re- 
frain from moralizing on what the Quill would be 
did it have the support to which both by its age 
and its work it is justly entitled. 

K. C. M. S. 


One of the best things that the Y. M. C. A. has 
started for a long time was initiated last Thurs- 
day. Mr. Fred Rindge of New York came to 
College that day and ferreted out the needs of the 
mill people in Brunswick, Pejepscot, Lisbon Falls 
and Bath. In the forenoon he spoke before the 
Economics I class and outlined the needs of the 
laboring classes and how college men had met 
these problems in many college towns throughout 
the United States and Canada. In the evening he 
spoke at the Y. M. C. A. meeting and called for 
volunteers. He was met with an enthusiastic re- 
sponse and about forty men have signified their 
willingness to aid in the work he started. Classes 
in English for foreigners were started in Bruns- 
wick, Pejepscot and Bath. These will be ex- 
tended to Lisbon Falls where over two hundred 
people were found who wanted help along these 
lines. The mill hands in Brunswick were ex- 
tremely pleased with the first classes and wanted 
all the time the college men could give. In one 
case at Pejepscot there was a young man who 
could not understand a word of English. In one 
lesson he mastered several sentences to his great 
delight. In Brunswick men were started in classes 
of reading and writing and in mathematics. The 
class in mathematics asked the instructor, one of 
the students, how to solve many of the problems 
that come up in their work by short cuts in mathe- 
matics, and he was able to give them some very 
great assistance. The enthusiasm of the men was 
almost beyond belief. They have asked for 
classes twice a week. The committee in charge 
is the Social Service Committee of the Y. M. C. 
A., but the religious side is not emphasized in the 
classes as they are for instruction in English and 
allied subjects only. The committee expects to be 
able to use all the men interested for one hour 
each week after Christmas and any others who 
become interested. If the enthusiasm of the 
student teachers equals that of the men the 
classes will be a great success.

A Change in College Dances 

The Student Council made an important recom- 
mendation in regard to the college dances of the 
winter season. For the last few years the Junior 
Assemblies have been poorly attended and have 
been generally recognized as not very creditable 
social functions. They are class rather than col- 
lege dances and do little toward binding the stu- 
dent body together. They present a financial 
problem to each succeeding committee. The 
Council, therefore, has recommended that they 
be abolished. On the other hand, at present Bow- 
doin has no general student body dance. It has 
been the custom in many colleges to hold such 
a dance in honor of the football squad or athletic 
teams in general. These dances are judged by 
the undergraduates to be the best dances of the 
year, offering unusual advantages for social in- 
tercourse and fostering a healthy undergraduate 
spirit. Such a dance as has been recommended 
might be under the management of the Student 

Council or the Board of Managers of the A. S. 
B. C. We should suggest that it might be held in 
honor of all '"B" men. To take the place of the 
other Junior Assembly it has also been recom- 
mended that the Sophomore class give a hop. 
This would afford an opportunity for the under- 
classmen to engage in some activity as a class and 
would assure the function of a more general col- 
lege interest. These two changes seem to us to fill 
a distinct need as well as a substitute for uniform- 
ally mediocre social affairs. The one requisite, 
however, for the success of the change is that 
these two dances should be held in the New Gym- 
nasium. The All-Bowdoin Athletic Dance would 
not interfere in any way with gymnasium work, 
coming as it does during the football season and 
the one Sophomore hop occurring in March or 
April might well be tolerated from the gymnas- 
ium point of view as a concession to that large 
body of Bowdoin undergraduates and alumni who 
looked forward to the new gymnasium with the 
idea that it should furnish a suitable building for 
social affairs. It is hoped that the recommenda- 
tion will be adopted next year by those concerned. 

A Singing College 

The one outstanding undergraduate opportun- 
ity emphasized at the recent meeting of the Stu- 
dent Council was the development of college sing- 
ing and cheering. It is recognized that we do not 
know our songs, that we do not cheer as we ought 
to, that these elements are valuable mediums for 
the transmission of' college spirit to the new 
Bowdoin men. The desire exists among nearly 
all of us to develop this side of our student life, 
but as yet the proper combination for such devel- 
opment has not yet been discovered. The Snow 
Song Cup and the class song competition seem to 
offer the opportunity and to the end that the com- 
petition may be a part of the Ivy exercises and a 
feature which Bowdoin will be proud of, those in 
charge have made plans for class and college 
sings during; the coming months. 

Tradition and Its Value 

That Bowdoin undergraduates are willing to 
give up time-worn traditions when they do not 
square with present demands and wants has been 
shown twice in the past fortnight. First in the 
vote of the Senior Class to reorganize the Pipe of 
Peace custom at Commencement so as to abolish 
the un-hygienic features. The second instance 
was the recommendation to do away with the 
Junior Assemblies. This is a healthy sign, this 
willingness to cut away the useless part of our 



Editorial Note 

There will be no regular issue of the Orient 
on the Tuesday following the opening of college 
after the holidays. A special issue of the Orient, 
however, will be published on this date under the 
direction of the Christian Association to bring 
before our readers important facts in connection 
with the big Fitch-Porter meetings.

Owing to the large number of schools which ap- 
plied for admission, there will be two Bowdoin 
Interscholastic Debating Leagues this year, for 
the first time in the history of the organization. 
League One is made up of Portland, Cony and*. 
Lewiston High Schools and Wilton Academy.. 
The schools in League Two are Westbrook, Ed- 
ward Little, Brunswick (and Biddeford High: 
Schools. The schools in League One comprised! 
the organization last year, but the unusual inter- 
est which was aroused among the fitting schools 
during the fall resulted in the formation of an- 
other division. 

The question to be debated is : Resolved, That 
the Monroe Doctrine Should Be Formally Re- 
tracted. Friday evening, March 6, has been set 
as a tentative date for all the debates. Portland 
will meet Cony in Portland, and Lewiston will 
face Wilton in Lewiston. In League Two, West- 
brook will meet Edward Little in Westbrook, and 
Brunswick will face Biddeford in Biddeford. 
The two winners in each league will meet here 
separately about the first of April, and the mem- 
bers of the winning team in each league will 
probably be presented with the customary silver 
cups. No plans have been made for bringing the 
final winners together, to decide the champion- 
ship of the two leagues, but if the champions of 
each organization should prefer to clash, arrange- 
ments would probably be made to that effect. The 
choice of sides for the preliminary debates will 
be announced later. 

The leagues are supervised by the Bowdoin 
Debating Council, and the committee in immed- 
iate charge is made up of Charles H. Bickford 
'14, chairman; Vernon W. Marr '14 and George 
H. Talbot '15. 

The coaches of the several teams, who are 
members in the debating course given by Profes- 
sor William Hawley Davis, are as follows : Port- 
land High, Charles H. Bickford; Cony High, 
Aaron W. Hyler '15; Lewiston High, William G. 
Tackaberry '15; Wilton Academy, Leon F. Dow 
'15; Brunswick High, Francis P. McKenney '15; 
Biddeford High, Kendrick Burns '14; Edward 
Little High, George W. Bacon '15; Westbrook 
High, George H. Talbot '15. 

The championship of the Interscholastic Debat- 
ing League for six years has been won as fol- 
lows: 1913, Lewiston High; 1912, Lewiston High; 
1910, Portland High; 1909, Portland High; 1908, 



Portland High; 1907, Lewistofli High. Portland 
High did not enter the league tfffifcil 1908. 


At a meeting of the Junior class, feeM Friday 
noon in the Boxing room, Leslie N. Stetson was 
elected the fifth member of the AsseimMy Com- 
mittee. The class voted a Bugle assessment of 
$10.00 and an Ivy assessment of $10.00. It was 
voted to allow the manager of the Bugle net over 
$40.00 and the assistant manager not over 2£20,oo,. 

After Sunday Chapel the Social Service Comi- 
.anttftee itook up a collection to give a Christmas to- 
-some of the poor people of Brunswick. Twenty 
dollars amd ninety-four cents were collected. The- 
money will be used in giving a Christmas tree to' 
the j>oor people in the Town Hall Tuesday night 
un conjunction with several of the benevolent so- 
cieties of the town.

Cluo anO Council Meetings 

At a meeting of the Student Council, Wednes- 
day, Dec. 17, it was voted to hold the elections for 
manager and assistant manager of football next 
semester. The Student Council also voted to rec- 
ommend that the Junior Assemblies be given up 
as they have not proved very successful in the 
past, and to recommend in their place two other 
dances to be held in the course of the year. These 
would be a Sophomore dance and a dance after 
one of the football games in the fall, after the 
Maine game one year, and after the Bates game 
another year. The Council appointed the leader 
of the Glee Club as songmaster at general college 
gatherings in order to improve the singing. The 
rally committee is planning for many rallies dur- 
ing the coming winter. 

A meeting of the Y. M. C. A. Cabinet was held 
last Thursday evening at Professor McCon- 
aughy's house. The various committees reported 
and Mr. Rindge, Industrial Secretary of the In- 
ternational Y. M. C. A., spoke to the Cabinet. 

At a recent meeting of the Board of Managers 
it was voted to allow Manager Floyd of the Fen- 
cing team to use funds already conditionally ap- 
portioned to him at his discretion.

'00. — The marriage of John Russell Bass of 
Wilton, Me., to Miss Alice Mary Ness of Howick, 
Quebec, took place at "Braemar," the home of the 
bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Ness, Sept. 
17. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. 
George Whilans, pastor of the Georgetown Pres- 
byterian Church. 

The bride was attended by her sister, Mrs. R. 
Brodie Anderson, of Winnepeg, matron of honor, 
and Miss Ethel Allen of Montreal, as maid of 
honor. The best man was George C. Wheeler, 
Esq., 'pi, of Portland, Me. 

Mr. and Mrs. Bass returned from a trip to 
Europe about Nov. 1, and are located at Wilton, 
Me., where Mr. Bass is connected with the G. H. 
Bass & Co., manufacturers of sportsmen's and 
river drivers' shoes. 

'01. — George R. Gardner's decision last month 
to decline an election as principal of Cony High 
at Augusta was the source of much gratification 
to all those interested in the welfare of the Bruns- 
wick High School. Mr. Gardner has been prin- 
cipal of that school for the past three years, dur- 
ing which he has won many friends there. 

'06. — Charles A. Houghton was married Nov. 
26, 1913, to Grace, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. 
Robert Wheat Carr, of Manchester, N. H. 

'07. — Miss Louise Estelle Gartley of Bangor, 
and Mr. Robert A. Con)', Jr., of Augusta, were 
united in marriage Nov. 26 at the home of the 
bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Gartley. 

The groom is a member of the Delta Kappa 
Epsilon fraternity. He is also a member of the 
Kennebec County Bar Association, having been 
admitted to the Maine Bar following a course of 
study at Washington, D. C, while in the capital 
city as private secretary to Senator Burleigh 

Mr. and Mrs. Cony have left for Washington,

yet been announced but the speakers will be Gage, 
Gray, Leigh, Newcombe, Robinson, and Simpson. 
The men are selected by the faculty from men 
recommended by Professor Mitchell. The parts 
which they present are original. 


The Musical Clubs leave Thursday for their 
first trip. They will be at Pittsfield Thursday 
evening, Bangor Friday evening, and Hallowell 
Saturday evening. 

The following men will make the trip : 

Glee Club — First tenor, Card '15, Shea '14, 
Melloon '15, Wilson '14, Rollins '15; second tenor, 
West '15, McKenney '15, Cristy '15, Evans '15;'

Following the plan laid by George V. Brown of 
the B.A.A. , Bates, Bowdoin, Maine and Colby 
were to have run a four-cornered race in Boston 
Feb. 7. This preliminary arrangement, however, 
was without the consent of the Bowdoin manage- 
ment, and it has met with objection from our 

Up until last year, Bowdoin has generally run 
some out-of-the-state college, usually Tufts or 
Vermont. Last year, in answer to a virtual chal- 
lenge from the University of Maine, Bowdoin 
took on that college, although believing that the 
athletic interests of each college could best be 
furthered by a race with some' college not in 
Maine s -and that a race between Bowdoin and 
Maine, if desired, could be arranged nearer home. 

Manager Koughan has made the following 
statement in regard to the state race: 

"Bowdoin is not afraid of the other Maine col- 
leges and is willing to run them in a relay race 
but not under the conditions as laid down by the 
management of the B.A.A. Bowdoin has ex- 
pressed a willingness to run the University of 
Maine, although that institution has, according to 
the dopesters, the most promising relay team in 
the state. Bowdoin is also willing to run in a 
four-cornered race in which the teams shall run 
two at a time, the winners of the preliminary 
races to run in a final for the state championship. 
Bowdoin is not willing, however, to run with 
three other teams on the track at the same time, 
the track at the Mechanics Building being unsuit- 
ed for such a race. The judgment of Bowdoin in 
this matter is backed by similar action at Holy 
Cross, Fordham, Georgetown and Boston College, 
which institutions unanimously refuse to run in a 
four-cornered race." 

The Athletic Council made its decision at a 
meeting late Monday. 


Football men and Bowdoin men in general are 
glad to hear that Tom McCann is to coach the 
football team again next fall. Those who watched 
his work this year are confident of his ability to 
turn out a successful team. The experience 
gained in his first year of college coaching will be 
used to great advantage, while the acquaintance 
of the fellows with his methods will greatly facili- 
tate his work. He will probably begin his duties 
about Sept. 14. 


The question for the Wesleyan-Hamilton- 
Bowdoin debate this year is, Resolved: That a 
Federal Commission should be established for the 
regulation of trusts. The date has not been set as 

The trials for the Bradbury debate will be held 
on Friday, January 23, in Memorial Hall. Each 
man will be allowed five minutes. The trials are 
open to all members of the college. The debate 
itself will take place on March 25 and the subject 
in both trials and debate will be 1 the one given 




This evening at 6.45 there will be a debate in 
Memorial Hall by men taking English 6. This 
debate is open to the public. The question to be 
debated is the same as that to be debated in the 
Interscholastic Debating League, Resolved : That 
the Monroe Doctrine should be Formally Retract- 
ed. The affirmative will be supported by G. A. 
Hall '15, Kuhn '15 and LaCasce '14, while H. E. 
Allen '15, Keegan '15 and Marr '14 will support 
the negative. Other public debates will be held 
on Jan. 20 and 27. 


On Tuesday evening, Jan. 6, in Memorial Hall, 
a small but very appreciative audience heard Mr. 
James Plaisted Webber, A.M., '00 of Exeter 
Academy give a recital on Hamlet. Mr. Webber 
is well known as a dramatic reader and has been 
a popular entertainer at Bowdoin on several oc- 
casions. He fascinated his audience by his inter- 
pretations of Hamlet, giving the play with the ex- 
ception of a few minor scenes only and taking all 
the parts himself. His work was particularly ef- 
fective in the ghost scene. Those who heard him 
are very grateful to the Ibis for bringing Mr. 
Webber here. 


The Masque and Gown will make its first trip 
to Bath this year, and trips to Rockland, Camden 
and Portland have also been arranged for. At 
present there are no other trips which are cer- 
tain, but as plans are already being laid for a trip 
to Massachusetts, the chances for such a trip 
seem very favorable. None of the dates have 
been decided. 


The subject of the essay for the Pray English 
Prize has been announced as "The Tragic Ele- 
ment in Shakespearean Comedy." This is a prize 
of forty-five dollars given by Dr. Thomas J. W. 
Pray of the Class of 1844 and awarded to the best 
scholar in English literature and original English 

The essays must not be more than four thou- 
sand words in length, and must be handed to Pro- 
fessor Elliott by May first. 


Since the Christmas holidays the relay squad 
has been practicing steadily. Coach Magee says 
the men have shown up well, are training con- 
scientiously and he is wholly satisfied with their 

work. There will be some sort of a meet every 
Saturday during the winter to train the men for 
the intercollegiate meets in the spring. The meet 
this coming Saturday will include mile, half-mile 
and quarter-mile runs, pole vault, shot put, broad 
jump, hurdles, relay races, and more soccer foot- 
ball. The following is a list of men on the relay 
squad: Eastman '15, Powers '16, Ireland '16, A. 
Stetson '15, L. Stetson '15, Balfe '17, Beal '16, 
Cormack '17, Richardson '15, Bond '17, Wing '15, 
Hall '16, Crosby '17, Roberts '15, Pierce '17, Man- 
nix '15, McElwee '16, Fuller '16, Bancroft '17, 
Swift '17, Robinson '17, Wyman '16, MacWilliams 
'15, Smith '15, Prescott '15, Fox '14, Wright '14, 
Pettingill '16, Weatherill '14. 


The fencing squad is working out daily under 
the coaching of Mr. Maroney, and at present the 
prospect for an excellent team seems very bright 
indeed. Of a large and enthusiastic body of as- 
pirants for places on the team, the following men 
show the greatest promise: Mitchell '14, Payson 
'14, Pope '14, Floyd '15, Porritt '15, Hargraves 
'16, Irving '16, Leadbetter '16 and Creeden '17. 

At present only two dates for meets are as- 
sured : one with Harvard for Feb. 20, and one 
with Williams for Feb. 28. Meets with the Pi- 
anelli Club and Yale are pending, but so far 
nothing can be said for certain about them. The 
trials for the team are yet to be held; probably 
they will come off either the last of this month or 
the first of February. 


Last Wednesday evening an enthusiastic rally 
was held in Memorial Hall and practically the 
whole College was there. Leigh '14 presided. 
The subject of the evening was, "If I Were a 
Bowdoin Undergraduate," and the speakers were 
Hurley '12, MacCormick '12, President Hyde and 
"Dave" Porter '06. Beside the speakers the Glee 
Club and the eats helped to make the meeting a 
live one. 

"Jack" Hurley spoke of the need of character 
for both efficiency and success. 

The Glee Club then made their first appearance 
for this season and sang the "Copper Moon" in 
fine style. 

"Bill" MacCormick spoke next and emphasized 
the need of raising the standard of thinking 
among men and of being proud of our Bowdoin 
heritage. Sam West and his trusty warblers 
again marched to the stage and enchanted us with 
the selection, "Rosalee." 



President Hyde then told us what he would do 
if he were a Bowdoin undergraduate, giving some 
interesting ideas from his unique viewpoint. 

"Dave" Porter was the last speaker. He dwelt 
upon leading a complete life and showed how eas- 
ily we might neglect the moral side of our life 
while absorbed in the intellectual and physical 

"Bob" Leigh then urged those present to par- 
take of the hot dogs, doughnuts and coffee and af- 
ter much persuasion they licked the platter clean. 
With the singing by the fellows and by the Glee 
Club, the refreshments, and the strong speeches, 
the evening proved a very enjoyable one. 


As the new semester approaches with its prob- 
lem of the collection of the second half of the 
Blanket Tax, a review of what was accomplished 
this semester may be profitable. 

When the first semester began, there were 356 
students who could be taxed. At the present 
writing 330 men have paid the first semester's 
tax, or about 92 per cent, of the men in college 
when the college year began. On the "black 
list," the list of men who neither paid nor asked 
for an extension, there are nine names. There 
are fifteen men who asked for extensions but have 
not yet paid. Of the men who have left college, 
two had not paid the tax. 

To the fifteen men who asked for extensions 
and have not yet paid, a special appeal must evi- 
dently be made. Some men whose names are on 
the so-called "black list" are honestly and abso- 
lutely unable to pay. They are compelled by cir- 
cumstances to forfeit the right of membership in 
the A.S.B.C. and give up the privilege of partici- 
pating in Bowdoin activities. Among the men 
who asked for extensions, however, there are few 
of this class. A request for an extension is con- 
sidered the expression of an intention to pay at 
some future time. We cannot hold these men 
down to paying, for the obligation is moral rather 
than legal. We can only appeal to their appre- 
ciation of the democracy, fairness, and effective- 
ness of the Blanket Tax, and urge them to as- 
sume their fair share of the burden of supporting 
our various activities. We feel that such an ap- 
peal will not fail to impress itself on these men 
and bring them the realization of their duty to the 
rest of the student body. 

Board of Managers. 

The following courses, not given during the first 
semester, may be elected: Botany, elective for 
Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors ; Economics 4A,

Dean Sills has announced that all students must 
register their choice of courses before Jan. 29. 


The second in a series of practice track meets 
was held in the Hyde Athletic Building, Saturday 
afternoon. The events included sprints on the 
dirt floor, a 300-yard handicap race and a 150- 
yard relay on the board track, and the high jump 
and pole vault in the pit. These were preceded 
by two games of soccer between the classes. 1914 
played 1916 two eight-minute periods and won 
three to two, while 1917 beat 1915 five to four in 
four five-minute periods. The following men 
played: 1914, O. Badger, A. Merrill, R. Weath- 
erill, Payson and A. L. Pratt; 19 15, Cutler, East- 
man, Roberts, McKenney, A. B. Stetson, Mannix, 
Wing, Morrison, P. Smith, Prescott and Coffin ; 
1916, Wyman, Fuller, Powers, McElwee, C. Hall, 
Beal and Pettingill; 1917, Bond, Noyes, Robinson, 
Pierce, Sampson, Crosby, Cormack and Fenning. 

The high jump was won by H. White '17 at 
5 ft., 5 in., with Keene '17 second at 5 ft., 4 in. 
Boardman '16, Nickerson '16, Fenning '17 and

The Meetings a Success 

The attendance and interest and fair-minded- 
ness of the student body at the series of Fitch - 
Porter meetings of last week are a sure indication 
that they were a'success. It is pleasing to note 
that the usual misunderstandings and prejudices at 
meetings of such character were absent. This 
was greatly due to the sensible planning by those 
in charge but more especially due to the open, 
frank, personalities of the two speakers. Their 
permanent influence on BowdOin life is impossi- 
ble of definite measurement, but will neverthe- 
less be of large proportions. What little criticism 
the Orient has received in giving such space 
to the series of meetings is philosophically ac- 
cepted, confident as we are that they had a de- 
finite place and need in our undergraduate life.

Probably the most significant meetings ever 
held at Bowdoin were held last Thursday, Friday 
and Sunday under Doctor Fitch and Dave Porter. 
A large number of men attended most of them 
and a great many were reached in various ways. 
The first of these meetings was held in the 
Chapel last Thursday evening, Jan. 8. Doctor 
Fitch was the speaker of the evening. In begin- 
ning his talk he divided young men into three 
classes. First, those who understand religion but 
who won't decide because of moral obliquity. It 
is up to these men to make a stand. Second, fel- 
lows who have various disbeliefs, but who want 
to do right. They are afraid to decide and act be- 
cause of these disbeliefs. This is the class which 
will receive the most attention and help at this 
time. Third, the indifferent ones, men who give' 
no thought at all to the matter of religion. 

He finished with an earnest appeal for personal 
conferences,. emphasizing their value to each man. 
man. .,.,.. 

In the second meeting of this series, held last 
Friday, in the Chapel, Dr. Fitch was the first 
speaker. He spoke on the first class he had men- 
tioned the previous evening, on men who under- 
stand religion but are unwilling to make a stand 
because of their moral obliquities. He said that: 
the man w'ho is licentious, a drinker, or one who. 



cheats in an examination, cannot have self-re- 
spect. In our own lives there is coming a time 
when we choose a woman whom we claim as our 
own, and to whom we give ourselves. Without 
self-respect a man cannot truly love, a pleasure 
which is one of the greatest gifts of Heaven. He 
prefers a man who can see the good in people to 
the cynical who is so premature that he only sees 
the bad in anybody. 

Dave Porter emphasized this talk of Dr. Fitch 
by asking two questions, "Has this talk contained 
anything for you?" and "What are you going to 
do about it?" He said that the best way to get 
rid of the evil is to bring in good. To get rid of 
bad habits, form good ones. 

At an informal meeting in the Kappa Sigma 
House Saturday evening, Dr. Fitch spoke on the 
evolution of religion and the human side of the 
Bible, showing how the stories of the Bible are 
applicable to men of today. 

In the Chapel at the Sunday evening service 
Dr. Fitch criticized in a friendly way and as a 
college man our profanjty and vulgarity of 
speech, our lounging on Sunday morning, and our 
excessive attendance at the "movies." He said 
that the man of one and twenty should seek sim- 
ple pleasures and not artificial enjoyment. In 
concluding the series of meetings Dave Porter 
begged the men to become disciples, defining a 
disciple as one trying to learn. He hoped that 
the men coming here next year would find a more 
Christ-like college. 


At first, peradventure, you skimmed the Decem- 
ber Quill in seasonable spirit. "A Christmas 
Greeting" sounded what you were feeling: the 
double harmony of the season, at once homelike 
and high, in "my house" and "your house" and 
also strangely far above either, "for every star 
rings music like a bell." And thereupon you rel- 
ished the home-thirst, especially, of the actress in 
"Without Publicity" ; a healthier-souled person- 
age, you pronounced her, than the majority of 
those who star in theatrical stories. The next 
tale, in contrast, took you far behind the foot- 
lights of social life, out and down into the sordid 
streets; there, however, "A Little Child," whom 
the author has managed to present appealingly 
without undue sentiment, led your mind away to 
the old story which first gave childhood such sig- 
nificance. But furthermore, the mingled self- 
doubt of the year-end, and the resolute hope of 
the New Year were upon you; and you read them 
in "The Spirit of the Pines." 

"Will you, immortal, cower before ... ■ 

The sting of a puny thought?" 
"No," you cried, with sincere feeling, quite 
caught up into the vigorous swing of the verses. 
The doubt and the hope, transposed into lighter 
key, reappeared in "The Way of a Maid with a 
Man." And finally the hope, now disentangled 
from the doubt, yielded readily to the delicate 
verse-music of "The Maid of Honor," and was 
led to look 

"Far on the road to Joyous Gard, 
To the almond trees, and the magic town. ' ' 
Surely a suitable finale to this very seasonable 

Afterwards you fingered the pages in colder 
mood. The originality of the final piece now 
stood out clearly. None of the other contribu- 
tions, in fact, is so free from usualness both in 
conception and in expression. The maid of honor, 
old theme of joke-writers and wedding-guests— 
has she previously received her due in poetry? 
Her present vision, to be sure, is strongly Tenny- 
sonian. But the style-movement is quite individ- 
ual. It lags only in the last stanza; here the 
thought deliberately tries to deepen itself (always 
a dangerous point for a poet) without full suc- 
cess. In contrast, the writer of the other poem 
needs deliberate study of expression. He has ac- 
cess to an emotional sphere which, to be perfectly 
frank, will remain closed to the.jnajority of col- 
lege undergraduates in our country until they 
"find themselves" (in Dr. Fitch's phrase), and 
cease to follow, with sheeplike democracy, the 
call of what may be termed the popular external- 
ities. All the more, then, one hopes that this 
writer will conquer the territory of words. The 
following are distinctly rebellious: "wee soul 
stood — all naked— welted by blow on blow." An 
infant Indian undergoing corporal punishment? 

In "Without Publicity" the character of the in- 
dependent Miss Porter is so skilfully prepared 
that we accept without demur her going "quietly 
to sleep" after watching an amateur burglar ap- 
propriate her jewelry. With his eye fixed some- 
what too seriously, however, upon the heroine, 
the writer has failed to create the atmosphere es- 
sential to the success of the ensuing comic situa- 
tion. For instance, we had not realized that Bert 
Holderness was fitted by nature for such an ex- 
traordinary escapade; nor even that the heroine 
had not previously set eyes on him. His final 
dialogue with her falls, therefore, a trifle flat. On 
the other hand, the subsidiary elements in "A Lit- 
tle Child Did Lead Her" are at one or two points 
over-elaborated. We accept the busy and inef- 
fective social-workers as an excellent background 
for the street-woman's tragedy, until three of 



them (Anna's two aunts and a cousin) are piled 
into one paragraph. Why, further, should the 
country express puff into and out of this particu- 
lar story "in that lordly manner?" And by the 
way, why should Anna's pure idiom descend, only 
once, to the level of "she don't"? 

As for "The Way of a Maid with a Man" : per- 
haps you had imagined, at first sight, that here 
you were to enter a narrative region more cath- 
olic in scope. After "the musical comedy success 
of the season" and the "dark-colored bottle and 
some glasses" on the garret table, you heard with 
relief "the full-toned insect hum of midsummer" 
and were glad of "the old-fashioned poke bonnet." 
But alas, you turned the page to find yourself 
fobbed off with a witticism — and one not suffi- 
ciently unusual to form the basis of a storiette. 
You turned back to "the poke bonnet," at the 
close of the third paragraph. At this point, you 
fancied, some fair story might well be inserted. 
What precedes would serve, without change of 
one word, for the introduction ; and what follows 
would make a neat conclusion. Such a tale, in- 
deed, would give no more expression to Bowdoin 
life and Bowdoin thought than the preceding two. 
But its theme would be comparatively free from 
the popular externalities.

Early Memories, by Henry Cabot Lodge, is 
among the new books at the Library. It is a very 
interesting account of the writer's boyhood and 
early manhood. The book commences with his 
recollections of Boston in the fifties and continues 
his life to the time of his first entering politics. 
Intimate and graphic portraits of such men as 
Rufus Choate, Sumner, Governor Andrew and 
others, are interspersed throughout the volume. 
Since Senator Lodge's career has been so rich in 
experience, and his contact with interesting char- 
acters so varied, the volume should be favorably 
received by the public. 

Railway Transportation, a History of Its Eco- 
nomics and of Its Relation to the State, by 
Charles Lee Raper, Dean of the Graduate School, 
University of North Carolina, is a work of great 
value to the student of Economics. It treats com- 
prehensively topics on Modern Transportation; 
Railway Transportation in France, Italy, Ger- 
many and the United States ; State Operation of 
Railways; Extension of the Parcels Post; and 
numerous other allied subjects. The book has 
been received favorably by the press in both this 
and other countries. 

The Englishman in the Alps, a collection of 

English prose and poetry relating to the Alps, 
edited by Arnold Lunn, is a remarkably well se- 
lected group of poems of standard writers. The 
book, though not so popular here as abroad, is 
becoming better known and bids fair to be as well 
received in the United States as in England. 

The Library is to purchase an engraved sil- 
houette of Hon. James Bowdoin, founder of the 
College, and at one time Governor of Massachu- 
setts. This silhouette and two others in the Wal- 
ker Art Building are thought to be the only like- 
nesses of Governor Bowdoin in existence.

during vacation put three of the four big boilers

by a reciprocal engine. It is thought that in the 
11 years that this engine has been running it has 
forced sufficient oil through the pipes to come 
back into the boilers until they began to leak.

The Boston Association of Bowdoin Alumni 

held their annual dinner, last Wednesday, at 
Young's Hotel with an attendance of about 175. 
President Hyde told of the bequests of the last 
year and how the college was dependent upon its 
living graduates for its scholarships and other 
funds. "Other co-operative bodies of the col- 
lege," he said, "are the faculty, the student body, 
and the fraternities." He spoke in glowing terms 
of the faculty, called the student body "the best 
set of fellows to be found the world over," and 
said that the fraternities develop the best there 
is in a man, more than the college could. Presi- 
dent Hooper of Tufts spoke of athletics in gen- 
eral from the time of the Greeks, and what they 
mean now to a college man. He touched upon 
the pleasant relations now existing between Tufts 
and Bowdoin. President Luther of Trinity made 
a witty speech in which he said that the average 
college man of today learns more and studies 
more than the man of a generation ago. He also 
touched upon the pleasant relations between his 
college and ours. U. S. Senator C. P. Johnson 
'79, in speaking of the college man in politics, said 
that he believed "that in electing to the office of 
Chief Executive of this country the president of 
Princeton it was clearly demonstrated that a man 
can capably train himself for the duties of public 
life in the office of a college president." Robert 
D. Leigh '14 told of the attitude of the students 
towards the new gymnasium, calling it the "win- 
ter playroom of Bowdoin." Other speakers were 
Dr. Fred Albee of New York and Roy R. Mars- 
ton '99 of Skowhegan. Dr. Myles Standish '75 of 
the Harvard Medical School was the toastmaster. 
The following officers were elected : Edwin U. 
Curtis '82, president; John F. Eliot '7^, and Sam- 
uel V. Cole '74, vice-presidents ; Alfred B. White 
'98, secretary ; George C. Purington '04, assistant 
secretary; William D. Stockbridge '99, chorister; 
William I. Cole '81, J. Everett Hicks '95, John C. 
Minot '96, Ripley L. Dana '01, J. Arthur Furbush 
'02, George P. Hyde '08 and Robert D. Morss '10, 
executive committee. 


Last Friday night the Bangor Alumni of Bow- 
doin gathered at the Penobscot Exchange. Din- 
ner was served at 5.30, and then from six to eight 
good after-dinner speaking was enjoyed. James 
A. Hamlin 1900, one of the committee of arrange- 
ments', was toastmaster. President Hyde was the 
first speaker, and he said practically what he had 
said at Boston. He used the same text, the re- 
mark of one freshman to another: "Oh, Prexy 
has a cinch." He claimed it was true because as 
he said, "My work is distributed among two 



thousand loyal alumni, among thirty splendid 
teachers, among 350 of the best students ever 
gathered in an institution, and is aided by the 
fraternity system — the center of the common life 
of us all." Dr. William C. Mason spoke as the 
representative of the Harvard Club of Bangor. 
In his remarks he quoted Colonel Roosevelt as 
saying that Bowdoin, in proportion to its size, has 
had more famous graduates than any other in- 
stitution, adding: "Not all of us agree with most 
of the colonel's statements, but that one is beyond 
dispute." George Eaton and Arthur McWilliams 
spoke for the undergraduates, the latter telling of 
our prospects in athletics for the coming year. 
The last speaker, Charles T. Hawes '76, praised 
Coach McCann in glowing words, predicting 
greater success for him next year when he will 
not be handicapped by raw material. The 
speeches were interspersed with songs by the 
members of the glee club who were entertained 
as the guests of the alumni. At eight the com- 
pany adjourned to the City Hall where the glee 
club gave a concert. The committee of arrange- 
ments included Bertram L. Bryant '95, James A. 
Hamlin '00 and Donald F. Snow '01. The follow- 
ing officers were elected: Dr. Thomas U. Coe '57, 
president; Frederick H. Appleton '64, vice-presi- 
dent; Dr. Bertram L. Bryant '95, secretary and 
treasurer; Roland E. Bragg '01, Samuel B. Gray 
'03, Charles P. Conners '03, Frank A. Floyd '73, 
Lyman K. Lee '92, executive committee.

During the last week the men interested in the 
Industrial Service work had a chance to help, 
both in Brunswick and outside. The classes con- 
tained from five to twenty men, most of whom 
are of foreign birth, but able to speak a little 
English. Tuesday, Jan. 13, Professor McCon- 
aughy, Robinson '14, Little '17, McConaughy '17, 
Sampson '17, Crehore '17 and Bartlett '17 went to 
Lisbon Falls, and Cooley '15, Rawson '16 and 
Hamlin '16 taught in Brunswick. Thursday night 
Professor McConaughy, Cutler '15, Winter '16, 
Wood '16, Nevin '16, Spaulding '17 and Irving '16 
went to Pejepscot; while Bacon '15, MacCormick 
'15 and Hamlin '16 taught in Brunswick. 

At Pejepscot three classes have been formed, 
one in civics for men soon to be naturalized, one 
for men who can't read or speak English, and one 
for men who can. These classes meet every 
Tuesday and Thursday, Irving '16 having charge 
of the Tuesday classes and Cutler '15 the Thurs- 
day classes. Classes in reading and mathematics 
in Brunswick meet every Tuesday and Thursday. 
The class of bootblacks in Bath proved impracti- 
cal owing to their having to work until a late 
hour, but it is hoped to start classes soon in the 
Bath Iron Works. Last Tuesday night classes 
were formed at Lisbon Falls which will meet 
regularly under the direction of Robinson '14. 

At a meeting Monday night, Jan. 12, about 
twenty-five men signed up for the work, but more 
men are needed, especially at Pejepscot.

The Blanket Tax 

This week the Board of Managers will meet 
and prepare for their semi-annual campaign for 
the seven-fifty assessment. The accounts of the 
treasurer show a substantial balance and esti- 
mates indicate that the second year of the tax 
will be even more prosperous than the first. Only 
nine men in college did not pay the first instal- 
ment this semester. The estimates of the Board, 
however, are made on the assumption that, as be- 
fore, the whole student body will meet this finan- 
cial obligation. The accomplishments of the new 
system speak for themselves. A long-standing 
Quill debt has been paid off, publications are on a 
basis of practical ' self-sufficiency, a very large 
football debt has been practically wiped away, 
larger appropriations have been given to various 
minor activities, the A.S.B.C. is on a sound finan- 
cial basis with excellent credit. All of the activi- 
ties receiving support from the tax are on a 

sounder, more scientific financial basis. The Stu- 
dent Body may well consider the Blanket Tax 
worthy of their unanimous support. 

A Useful Booklet 

There has just been issued by the Student 
Council a twenty-four page booklet containing the 
Constitutions, By-Laws and Regulations of the 
various student organizations included within the 
Associated Students of Bowdoin College. The 
purpose of the book is explained in the note on 
the title page : "This booklet is the property of 
the Student Council and is designed for the free 
use of officers and members of the Associated 
Students and other college organizations. It 
should be carefully preserved and returned to the 
secretary of the Council upon leaving college." 
This is the first time that the various documents 
have been made accessible to every student and it 
is hoped that they will be widely read. There are 
contained in its pages such interesting material 
as the regulations for wearing the "B," election 
of managers and captains, regulations of the 
Board of Managers, etc. It is understood that 
members of the Faculty are welcome to use these 
copies also. There have been a number of diffi- 
culties in management of student affairs within 
the last two years owing to an insufficient knowl- 
edge of their own duties on the part of various 
officers of student organizations but there should 
no longer be an excuse for such ignorance. 
Copies may be had upon application to the Secre- 
tary or President of the Council, 7 Appleton Hall 
or 7 Maine Hall. 

Forty-nine per cent, of the students of Bowdoin 
College have been out for some sort of athletics 
during the past year. The branches of activity 
which have been considered are : football, base- 
ball, track, cross-country, relay, tennis, class foot- 
ball and class baseball. On account of the fact 
that the time for this winter's interclass track 
meet is close at hand, no attempt has been made 
to compute the number of men out for interclass 

In the figures given below, medical students are 
not included, principally for the reason that only 
one medical student is believed to have competed 
in any sport. Managers, assistant managers and 
candidates for assistant manager are not counted 
as candidates for any team, but managers are 
counted among those who have received a "B." 

Baseball, tennis and track men from 1913 are 
given in the figures, but are not counted in the 
per cent, of the number now in College. Relay 


and cross-country "B's" are given under track 
"B's." Only one tennis "B," in addition to mana- 
gers' "B's" was given last spring. 

This athletic census, compiled especially for the 
Orient, is believed to be the first ever taken of 
the College. The figures of each sport follow:

Seventeen Maine High and preparatory schools 
have signified their intention of entering the Sec- 
ond Anuual Bowdoin Indoor Interscholastic 
Track Meet to be held in the Hyde Athletic 
Building Feb. 28. A number of the more prom- 
inent Massachusetts preparatory schools had been 
invited to compete in the relay races, but owing 

to the fact that the B.A. A. interscholastic games 
come the day before, — an annual event with the 
Massachusetts schools, — the Bay State teams will 
not compete at Bowdoin this year. 

Those Maine schools which have entered are: 
Portland High School, Hebron, Deering High 
School, Westbrook Seminary, Edward Little High 
School of Auburn, Dexter High School, Lincoln 
Academy of Newcastle, Leavitt Institute of Tur- 
ner Center, Brunswick High School, Gardiner High 
School, Morse High School of Bath, Lewiston 
High School, Thornton Academy of Saco, Tops- 
ham High School and Wilton Academy of Wilton. 

The date for the close of entries, although orig- 
ignally set for Jan. 1 7, has been postponed one 
week, entries not being received after Jan. 24. 
It is expected that a number of other schools that 
have always been prominent in Maine track 
events will enter in the course of next week. 
Among those that are expected to enter are: 
Kents Hill, Cony High School of Augusta, Ban- 
gor High School, Abbott School of Farmington 
and Camden High School. 


Tuesday evening, Jan. 13, there was a debate in 
Memorial Hall by men taking English 6. The 
question debated was : Resolved : That the Mon- 
roe Doctrine should be formally retracted. The 
affirmative was upheld by LaCasce '14, G. A. Hall 
'15 and Kuhn '15, while Marr '14, Allen '15 and 
Keegan '15 supported the negative. Mr. Wilder, 
Wing '15 and MacDonald '15 acted as judges, and 
decided for the negative. Rogers '15 was pre- 
siding officer. 

There will be another debate this evening in 
Memorial Hall. Resolved : That the International 
Workers of the World offer a better solution of 
industrial problems than the American Federation 
of Labor. Leigh '14, McKenney '15 and Rollins 
'15 will support the affirmative; Bickford '14, 
Burns '14 and Talbot '15 will speak for the nega- 
tive. Professor Catlin, Rogers '15 and Hyler '15 
will act as judges, and Verrill '15 will preside 
over the meeting. 


The Monday Night Club met last week at the 
Beta house and elected officers. Alton Lewis was 
made president and Herbert Foster, secretary and 
treasurer. Trainer Magee was elected to honor- 
ary membership. J. C. MacDonald '15, assistant 
manager, and all the new "B" men were initiated. 
The new "B" men include A. L. Pratt '14, Mount- 
fort '14, Brewster '16, Stuart '16, Fitzgerald '16, 
Colbath '17, C. Foster '17. Plans were talked over 
for getting prep school men interested in college, 


refreshments were served, and a general good 
time ensued. The other members of the club are 
Coach McCann, Weatherill '14, Leigh '14, L. 
Brown '14, Burns '14, Lewis '15, Barry '16, Lead- 
better '16, H. Foster '16. The next meeting of 
the club will be held at the Kappa Sigma house, 
Feb. 9. 


The Bradbury Debates will be held probably 
not later than Feb. 26th, instead of March 25th, 
as announced in last week's issue. The exact date 
will be published later.

in Hubbard Hall Saturday noon. A provisional 
appropriation for the Fencing Association was 
voted. MacCormick '15 reported on the condi- 
tion of the Blanket Tax and gave estimates of the

The Deutscher Verein met at the Theta Delta 
Chi house last Wednesday. Professor Ham spoke 
•on the development of modern Germany in its 
commercial life through cooperation. 

The Classical Club held a meeting Thursday 
evening at the Theta Delta Chi house. Professor 
Nixon spoke on "Roman Slavery." 

At a meeting of the Athletic Council last week, 
the proposal to run a four-cornered race with the 
other Maine colleges, under conditions as laid 
down by the B.A.A., was voted down. Manager 
Koughan was authorized to secure a race at the 
BAA. with either Maine or Bates. 

The matter of the dual meet with Bates was 
laid on the table, while the manager could make 
an estimate of the expenses of such a meet. The 
Council was opposed to an indoor meet between 
the four Maine colleges. 

The Council met again last night, too late for 
the Orient to secure a report of the meeting.

other game has been arranged for the near fu- 
ture. In the meantime, the all-star aggregation 
would be glad to hear from any fast amateur 



team in the eastern part of the United States. 

The Brunswick Boys' Club, with its headquar- 
ters in the Sargent Gym, now has a membership 
of 115. Although the athletic side of the work 
has been under way for some time, the social side 
has just begun. Last week clubs, composed of 
from ten to fifteen boys each, were organized to 
play games and to meet socially. Any student de- 
siring to lead one of these groups may have the 
opportunity. One of the most interesting groups 
is the group of business men who take athletic 
work one evening a week.

'46. — Sir Josiah Pierce, 86, lawyer, engineer 
and capitalist, oldest member of any Portland 
Masonic Lodge, last survivor of the Class of 
1846, Bowdoin College, and one of the oldest of 
its alumni, died Friday in Hanover, Germany. 
He is survived by a widow and one daughter and 
by one brother, Lewis Pierce, Bowdoin 1852. 

He came of an illustrious ancestry, his father, 
a native of Baldwin, graduating from Bowdoin in 
1818, practising law in Gorham many years, serv- 
ing as judge of Probate in this county, 1846-57, as 
overseer and trustee of Bowdoin and in both 
branches of the Maine Legislature. He died in 
1866 at the age of 74. 

The subject of this sketch passed his boyhood 
days in his native town of Gorham, always with a 
classic and dignified atmosphere. Beneath the 
shade of its giant trees, over its undulating sur- 
face, in its schools, churches and homes he laid 
the foundation for a career in the law, in the for- 
eign office of this Government, as a business law- 
yer and associate with men of affairs and distinc- 
tion abroad. 

Another brother, George Washington Pierce, 
graduate of Bowdoin in 1857, a c ' v 'l engineer, 
died in Baldwin four years ago. 

He received the degree of Bachelor of Arts at 
Bowdoin in 1846 and Master of Arts in 1849. H e 
was a student in his father's law office in Gorham 
for two years immediately following graduation 
from Bowdoin, was admitted to the Cumberland 
County bar and practiced there seven years, until 
1855. Mr. Pierce was appointed secretary of the 
U. S. Legation at St. Petersburg and served in 
that capacity three years. 

It was while stationed as a representative of 
this Government in the Russian capital that he 
became acquainted with capitalists who were de- 
veloping railroad lines in that country, especially 
between Moscow and St. Petersburg. In railroad 
circles this syndicate was known as Winans, Har- 
rison & Winans by reason of the men prominent 
in those enterprises. Mr. Pierce remained with 
them and was associated with them in those pro- 
fitable ventures, removing later to London and 
establishing a residence in that city and acting as 
their attorney in the English courts as well. 

He was knighted in 1865 as Knight of the Rus- 
sian Order of St. Anne. 

He was a member of the Royal Geographical 
Society, the Royal Institute, British Archaeologi- 
cal Society, as well as others of interest and im- 
portance abroad and also of the Maine Historical 
Society with headquarters in Portland, an organi- 

zation with which he had been affiliated many 

At Bowdoin, Mr. Pierce was a member of the 
Psi Upsilon fraternity and made Phi Beta 
Kappa. He was one of the oldest members of the 
Psi Upsilon fraternity in the world. He was the 
last surviving graduate of the class of 1846. 

Mr. Pierce fitted for college in the public 
schools of his native town and at the old Gorham 
Academy. Mr. Pierce was the oldest member of 
any Portland Lodge of Masons and was initiated 
a member of Ancient Landmark Lodge, August 
4, 1852, more than 61 years ago.

'98. — Through the Arctic regions Christmas 
eve, unless the Aurora-Borealis interfered, a 
wireless message from the sponsors of the Crock- 
er Land expedition sped to its leader, Donald B. 
MacMillan, and his companions at Etah, Green- 
land, 1,600 miles away. 

It was a Christmas message from the American. 
Museum of Natural History, the American Geo- 
graphical Society and the University of Illinois, 
and was signed by Dr. Edmund O. Hovey, of the 
Museum, director of the expedition. The mes- 
sage read : 

"Heartiest greetings and best wishes from Mu- 
seum, Geographical Society and University of Il- 
linois, and from family and personal friends of 
yourself and party. We are well and are confi- 
dent of your success in spite of all difficulties, 
though no word from you has come through yet." 
The message was forwarded through Canadian 
government channels. It was looked on as a good 
chance that it would reach its source, and though 
the wireless outfit of the party is expected to have 
caught it, it is not powerful enough to send an 
answer, which is tantalizing to those who want to 
know about the expedition.

"Rigoletto," "Norma," "Lucia di Lammermoor" 
and "Barber of Seville," for the entire winter 
season in Italy. That he has distinguished him- 
self in these roles is shown by the following criti- 
cism which appeared in a Bologna paper during 
a run of twelve performances of "Norma :" "The 
bass, Giovanni Romilli, is a young artist most 
conscientious and correct, one who pleases and 
performs splendidly."

On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, Feb. 9, 
10 and 11, the Blanket Tax for the second semes- 
ter will be collected in the Manager's room in the 
New Gym. The office hours will be from 8.30 
a. m. to 12.30 p. m. and from 1 to 5 p. m. On pay- 
ment of $7.50 the students will receive the tickets 
of membership in the A.S.B.C. with coupons of 
admission to various intercollegiate contests to be 
held in the spring. The number of coupons is 
greater than that of any previous semester and 
will include admission to five home baseball 
games. At 8 o'clock Feb. 11, the Board of Man- 
agers will meet to consider all applications for 

A plea for the prompt support of the Blanket 
Tax seems hardly necessary. The A.S.B.C. needs 
your money and you need the A.S.B.C. Bowdoin 
organizations are fast getting on a sound finan-

Track Manager Koughan has issued the fol- 
lowing statement about Bowdoin's position in re- 
gard to the B.A.A. meet which is to be held on 
Feb. 7: "The date for the close of entries for 
the B.A.A. meet was Saturday, Jan. 24. Bow- 
doin did not send any entries for the reason that 
the Athletic Council voted that Bowdoin should 
not compete in a race with four colleges starting 
at once. As much pressure as possible was 
brought to bear upon the B.A.A. management to 
run the race as first agreed ; namely, Bowdoin vs. 
Maine, and Colby vs. Bates. At a meeting of the 
Athletic Committee of the B.A.A. held Saturday, 
Jan. 17, it was voted unanimously that unless the 
Maine colleges would agree to run as provided 
by the management; namely, as a race for the 
state championship in relay, four colleges starting 
just as two ordinarily, the invitation to the meet 
would be withdrawn. At this notice, the Maine 
colleges, Bowdoin excepted, sent in their entries, 
and will race Feb. 7 for the championship of the 

There is, however, a Maine Intercollegiate Ath- 
letic Association which has not as yet taken up 
the matter of a state relay championship.. There- 
fore the college which wins this triangular race 

will have no right to call itself the champion of 
the state. 

The Bowdoin relay team will probably compete 
in one of the indoor meets held at Providence or 
New York, and will probably race some institu- 
tion outside the state." 

Bowdoin has been invited to run at the Coast 
Artillery Corps games in Providence, Feb. 21. 


The first definite cut in the relay squad was- 
made by Coach Magee last Saturday. Each can- 
didate ran 390 yards,— the equivalent of three 
laps on the B.A.A. track. The following 15 men 
were retained: Fox '14, Wright '14, Smith '15, 
Wing '15, Roberts '15, Richardson '15, McWil- 
liams '15, Wyman '16, McElwee '16, Ireland '16, 
Fuller '16, Beal '16, Balfe '17, Crosby '17, Bond 
'17. Among the other candidates were Weather- 
ill '14, A. B. Stetson '15, L. Stetson '15, Prescott 
'15, Eastman '15, C. Hall '16, Irving '16, Pettin- 
gill '16, and Robinson '17. Coach Magee is much 
pleased with the outlook for a winning relay team 
and the prospects for success are very bright. 

The semi-final trials will be held next Saturday, 
Jan. 31, and at that time the second cut in the 
squad will be made. Together with this, a prac- 
tice track meet will be held with the following 
events scheduled: high jump, shot put, hurdles 
and short dashes. 


Kenneth A. Robinson '14 was the winner of the 
Class of '68 Prize Speaking Contest held in Me- 
morial Hall, last Monday night, January 19th. 
He took for his subject, "Twentieth Century Ten- 
dencies and Alfred Noyes." He said that the 
modern tendencies of poetry are towards realism, 
and that Alfred Noyes is an idealistic poet, not 
visionary but tending from materialism to ideal- 
ism. The judges were Rev. Chauncey W. Good- 
rich, G. Allen Howe, Esq., and Professor G. M. 
Robinson. The programme was as follows : 

The New Provincialism, Robert Devore Leigh 
An Ideal Restored, Alfred Watts Newcombe

The Maine preparatory schools of the Bowdoin 
Interscholastic Debating League will meet March

peting this year two leagues have been formed. 
The teams have been chosen and they will meet

Portland High vs. Cony High at Portland. 

Lewiston High vs. Wilton Academy at Lewis- 

Brunswick High vs. Biddeford High at Bruns-

The fencing schedule, as approved by the Ath- 
letic Council but not yet approved by the Faculty, 
is undoubtedly the best Bowdoin ever had. The 
season opens Saturday evening, Feb. 14, with a 
match with Yale in Brunswick .in the main exer- 
cise room of the Gym. This is the first time a 
Yale team of any kind has ever come into Maine 
and the match should prove a decided attraction. 
The Student Council is planning to make this a 
big event with other forms of entertainment be- 
sides the bouts. On Feb. 20 Bowdoin meets Har- 
vard at Cambridge and on Feb. 28 Williams at 
Williamstown. On March 21 the team fences in 
the intercollegiates at Cambridge against Har- 
vard, Yale and Cornell. Three of these teams 
will go to New York a week later for the inter- 
collegiate finals, where they will meet three teams 
from the southern division. 

Part of the fencing squad journeyed to Au- 
gusta last Tuesday, Jan. 20, for a strictly informal 
match with the Pianelli Club. It was a practice 
match for both teams, the number of touches not 
being counted, simply the times of each match 
being taken. Leadbetter '16, Floyd '15, Payson 
'14, Porritt '15 and Maroney '17, the instructor, 
were the men to make the trip. Before long a re- 
turn match, also informal, will be held here in 


The fifth concert of the Bowdoin Musical Clubs 
was held on Thursday evening, Jan. 22, in the 
Town Hall at Gorham. The entertainment was 
held under the auspices of the Gorham Board of 
Trade. The hall was crowded and every selection 
met with well-merited applause. Many of the 
members of the clubs were entertained by Carl 
Warren '12 and John Robie '16. 

The program was that given at the other con- 

Students are reminded that they must register 
for all courses before Thursday, January 29. It 
will not be necessary to have the course cards 



signed by the instructors. Registration after 
January 29 will involve the usual payment fees 
for late registration. There will be no necessity 
of registering on the first day of the second sem- 
ester. Classes will begin promptly on scheduled 
time, and absences will be counted as usual from 
the first day. 

The following courses not offered during the 
first semester will be available: 

Botany : Elective for Sophomores, Juniors and 
Seniors ; Professor Copeland. 

Economics 4a, Public Finance : Prerequisite ; 
Economics 1 ; Professor Catlin. 

Economics 6, The Labor Problem : Elective for 
Juniors and Seniors; Professor Catlin. 

Education 2, Secondary Education : Elective

Professor McConaughy. 

English 10, Nineteenth Century Essayists : Pre- 
requisite; English 3, Professor Davis. 

English 12, The Drama : Elective for Juniors 
and Seniors; Professor McConaughy. 

Mineralogy: Prerequisite; Chemistry 1, Pro- 
fessor Cram. 

Latin 8, Latin influence in English Literature : 
Elective for Juniors and Seniors, and in special 
cases, Sophomores ; Dean Sills. 

The Bowdoin College Alumni Association of 
New York will hold its forty-ninth annual meet- 
ing and banquet on Friday evening, Jan. 30, at the 
Hotel Breslin, Broadway and Twenty-ninth 
Street. Joseph B. Roberts, the secretary, has the 
affair in charge. President Hyde and Professor 
McConaughy will represent the college. Profes- 
sor McConaughy will use his illustrated lecture 
on Bowdoin, showing the college and the student 
life as they are today. On the other hand, some 
of the older alumni will give reminiscences of the 
college of the past. 


Mr. Isaac Bassett Choate, of the Class of 1862, 
has the following to add to "Bowdoin Traditions" 
in the recently issued pamphlet "Life at Bow- 
doin" : 

"You will pardon me for adding a word to the 
'Bowdoin Traditions' by way of illumination, as it 
were. The word is in relation to 'Diogenes,' who 
is mentioned on page 33. I fear the readers of to- 
day may gain the impression that we of the '50's 
and '6o's did not enjoy the perennial ministration 
and supervision of that embodiment of cynical 
philosophy; that he was an intermittent luminary 
of the campus and of Freshman intellect. No, 

Diogenes was as reliable as any fixed star. His 
lantern heralded the day to many a sleepy colle- 
gian. Had it failed to appear at about 5.30 in the 
morning, attendance upon Chapel would have 
been slim. His duties consisted largely in rousing 
students from their dreams and in kindling their 
fires for the more Sybaritic. Diogenes is not to 
be classed with Daniel Pratt, with 'Eternal Youth' 
or with 'Ever Blest,' who were the comets, as it 
were, of our heavens. His name may have been 
Curtis. He was always called 'Old Curt,' presum- 
ably for short, but it was not easy to escape the 
suspicion that he gained this name because it 
rhymed so well with Dirt." 


v Schools that have entered the Bowdoin Inter- 
scholastic Indoor Meet, in addition to the list 
printed in the Orient last week, are Lisbon Falls, 
Good Will, Bangor, Saco and Rockland Hio-h 

In addition to the regular track events, there 
will be a relay race between pairs of teams. In 
case an agreement can be reached between the 
different teams, the Bowdoin management pre- 
fers to let the teams choose their own opponents, 
but reserves the right to pick opponents in the 
races in case no such agreement can be made. 

Although none of the races has yet been set- 
tled, it is thought that the following teams will 
meet: Portland vs. Deering, Edward Little vs 
Lewiston, Hebron vs. Kents Hill, Gardiner vs 
Cony, Morse vs. Lincoln, Wilton vs. Abbott" 
Thornton vs. Maine Central Institute, Topsham 
vs. Leavitt, Brunswick vs. Westbrook Seminary. 

Soon after the opening of the second semester 
the Y.M.C.A. classes which have been taking 
Bible study will change to the study of missions 
both at home and abroad. For four or five Sun- 
days at 4 p. m. between then and Easter Pro- 
fessor McLean will meet groups in various fra- 
ternity houses. The course will not be a lecture 
course but will be a general discussion of "What 
the College Man Should Know About his Coun- 
try." It will deal particularly with immigrant 
forces, the problem of the city and other subjects 
interesting from the economic as well as other 
standpoints. This course is open to Seniors 
Juniors and Sophomores. 

Professor McConaughy and MacCormick 'k 
will conduct a course for Freshmen in the rooms 
in the dormitories. This will take up more par- 
ticularly foreign fields, their needs, and the way 
these needs are being met. The course is on the 
general subject "What the College Man Should 
Know About Other Lands. ' '

The Athletic Council Policy 

An interesting example of the policy of the 
Athletic Council is revealed in the recent decision 
of that body not to enter the four-cornered Maine 
College Relay Race in the B.A.A. Meet. It seems 
that our track coach, who has been intimately 
connected with Boston athletic events for a num- 
ber of years, and who is by experience and judg- 
ment best fitted to pass on the conditions of such 
a race planned, after a careful investigation of the 
facts at issue and conference with the B.A.A. of- 
ficials, decided that such a race would be desir- 
able. He was not, however, invited to offer ad- 
vice or participate in the discussion upon which 
the decision was made. The reasons given were 
purely technical, that is, in regard to the width of 
the track, etc., etc., questions which were for the 
track coach to decide, and which he is eminently 
fitted to decide. The sequel of this decision is 
that Bowdoin, with one of the best relay teams in 

years, will not compete at all in the B.A.A. games, 
but, at an extra expense of seventy-five dollars, 
will journey to Providence to take part in a minor 
relay meet in order to reward the faithful train- 
ing of the squad in preparation for the big annual 
Boston race. Furthermore, the management of 
the B.A.A. is disposed to bar Bowdoin from par- 
ticipation in future meets of this kind. In short, 
through the short-sighted action of the Council, 
Bowdoin indoor relay athletics will undoubtedly 
suffer severe injury. 

We have hesitated for some time to cause any 
friction in our student activities by opposing this 
seemingly consistent policy of the Council of tak- 
ing action without the advice of coaches or mana- 
gers, oftentimes holding meetings without invit- 
ing them to be present. But this recent blunder 
demands the attention of the college body. The 
real reason for this policy is to be found partly in 
the loose organization of the Council and its hap- 
hazard way of doing its business, a method of 
which college men should be ashamed. It is part- 
ly due to the lack of care in selecting members 
who are expert to judge our athletic policies. 

As an example of the methods of the Council, 
the recommendations of an athletic manager re- 
cently for nominees for assistant manager were 
absolutely reversed in the Council without any 
cause being given. In this way, by purely arbi- 
trary means, the only scientific, impartial way of 
choosing candidates for managerships by compe- 
tition was entirely subverted. It is time some ac- 
tion was taken to get more scientific, expert ac- 
tion on these questions. In the meantime, we 
hope it is not too late to reverse the ill-advised 
action in regard to the B.A.A. races and rein- 
state ourselves in the eyes of the sporting public. 

The Gymnasium and the Assemblies 

The Junior Assembly Committee has met with 
opposition in its plan to hold this year's dance in 
the New Gymnasium. Last year those in charge 
of these dances applied for use of the new build- 
ing, but willingly changed their plans on the state- 
ment of those in charge that the confusion due 
to the recent occupancy of the building would ren- 
der its use for such a purpose impracticable. But 
everyone thought last year's mediocre dances 
would be the last in Memorial Hall and sighed 
with relief as the last journey was taken up and 
down the hills and valleys of its floor. This year's 
committee, in anticipation of the change planned 
for next year suggested by the Student Council, 
decided to hold one big Assembly in the Gymna- 
sium. The student body, as a whole, is in favor 
of such a plan, is so strongly in favor of it that a 



dance in Memorial Hall would be a flat failure, 
financially and socially . Then why should not 
the Gymnasium be used? The objections, al- 
though they appear trivial in print, deserve, per- 
haps, examination and comment. 

It is urged that it will interfere with regular 
gymnasium work. But as adjourns were always 
granted on the day of the dance in years past, 
there is no valid reason for believing that the 
work of the classes will be interfered with in the 
slightest degree. Again it is said that the janitor 
service is not sufficient to get the floor into condi- 
tion. But for years special janitor service has 
been supplied to do the work of preparing Memo- 
rial Hall for the dances, and the same could be 
done for the Gymnasium. If necessary, students 
could be secured to do the work free of charge. 
It has also been stated that such a dance would 
be out of place in the big building. But this, it 
seems, is a matter for the student committee to 
decide, and it is very probable that what the stu- 
dents want will be the most successful sort of a 
social function. There may be real reasons for 
not using the new building, but they have not yet 
come to light. Until they are brought forward, it 
seems to the Orient that the student body should 
be allowed this very legitimate use of a college 

The attitude maintained in regard to the use of 
this college building reminds us of the early 
Dutch housewives who kept their parlors locked 
except for very important occasions. The Gym- 
nasium, of all buildings, is for use rather than 
ornament, and the students' demands and needs in 
the holding of social functions should be respect- 
ed. It is the custom throughout the country to 
use such buildings for college dances, usually 
much oftener than is proposed by the student body 
at Bowdoin, and many of the donors, both under- 
graduates and alumni, gave their money with the 
idea that it would be a home for Bowdoin dances. 
It is rumored that the Faculty are to act on this 
question in the near future and the students will 
await their conclusions with the keenest interest. 
It is a matter about which they are thoroughly 
aroused and the decision of which will have great 
weight in determining the spirit of the student 
body for the remainder of the year. In the mean- 
time there can be nothing done by the committee 
in regard to arranging for the dance.

"Industrial Combinations and Trusts," edited 
by William S. Stevens, Ph.D., Instructor in Co- 
lumbia University, is a very instructive book on 
many phases of the subject. It contains inter- 
esting chapters on such subjects as How a Trust 
is Formed, How a Patent Monopoly Works, How 
the Steel Corporation Came to be Formed, How 
the Oil, Powder and Tobacco Trusts Were Dis- 
solved, and many other topics of vital importance. 
The work should be of especial interest to eca- - 
nomics students. 

"La Follette's Autobiography," by Robert MT_ 
La Follette, bids fair to take its place among the- 
great political memoirs. It portrays the remark- 
able life of a courageous leader and hard working 
man who triumphed after a long struggle with 
poverty and debt, and whose thirty years of pub- 
lic life have been spent in fighting powerful finan- 
cial and political situations. Its vividness and! 
frankness combine to make the volume interest- 
ing for its political as well as its historical im- 
portance, for in a large measure it is a story of 
the progress of democracy in America.

The students at Harvard have hit upon a re- 
markably novel idea for obtaining seclusion dur- 
ing "finals." They hang common red lanterns, 
from the windows, and a would-be caller seeing 
the lantern so displayed is informed that the oc- 
cupant of the room is "boning" and does not wish 
to be disturbed. 

Two students at the University of Pennsyl- 
vania have committed suicide during the past 
week and a third has been accidently drowned. 

There are 132 foreign students at the Univer- 
sity of Illinois. Of these fifty-three are Chinese, 
and twenty-two nationalities are represented. 

University of Oregan students have recently 
introduced an innovation in regard to mass meet- 
ings. Before each rally an old house is secured, 
and it is the duty of the Freshmen to move the 
structure to the scene of the rally and there trans- 
form it into a giant bonfire. 

According to figures recently made public, 1708 
students or a little less than half of the total 
registration of 3623, took part in some form of 
athletics at Yale during the fall months. 

At present it appears likely that Columbia will 
adopt the honor system which has been so well 
established in some colleges. A canvass, ha.s been 


taken in the various classes to ascertain the num- 
ber of the student body in favor of such a change. 
In the senior class it was found that eleven to one 
were in favor of the system, while about twenty- 
five per cent, were indifferent. In the junior class 
seven to one were in favor of the system. The 
sophomores supported it eight to one, while the 
School of Journalism voted ninety-five per cent, 
for the new measure. 

A steady increase in the number of candidates 
for admission to Harvard who failed to pass the 
entrance examinations is shown in a compilation 
of statistics for the last seven years. Of the 885 
boys who took the examinations in June and Sep- 
tember last, 25.7 per cent, failed to meet the re- 
quirements. In 1906 only 12.7 per cent, of the 
■candidates were rejected. More severe examina- 
tions and the policy of the university in radically 
reducing the number of students admitted with 
conditions are considered the chief causes of the 
increases in failures. The figures show that the 
candidates found the English examinations the 
hardest to pass. 

The University of Nebraska has introduced a 
decided innovation in American collegiate educa- 
tion in the form of a correspondence course for 
the convicts of the State penitentiary. Thirty- 
four men, among them four life prisoners, have 
already applied for enrollment. The courses, 
which comprise arithmetic, American history, 
grammar, literature, bookkeeping, and agricul- 
ture are elective, and are open to all convicts. 
Their purpose is to prepare convicts to be self- 
supporting when they are released. 

During the past football season Carlisle and a 
few other colleges tried the experiment of num- 
bering their players, and in a game with Cornell 
Friday night, Harry Fisher, graduate director of 
athletics at Columbia numbered his basketball 
players. In both cases the experiment proved 
highly satisfactory to spectators as well as to 
^coaches and players. 

The students at Graz University, Rome, Italy, 
upon finding that their demands for an Italian 
faculty were not to be acceded to started a public 
agitation. On their parade around the city they 
found the path blockaded by the German students, 
and a serious fight took place. Police interfer- 
ence was necessary to quiet the disturbance. 

The faculty of Denison University have voted

women's department of the institution. The 
method to be pursued will be to forbid the pledg- 
ing or initiation of any new members. In this 
way the chapters will automatically become ex- 
tinct within four years. 

In continuation of the exchange professorship 

plan which already includes France, Germany and 
Japan, Harvard University is considering an ex- 
change of professors and also of students with 
the University of Chile. Dr. Carlos de Pena, the 
minister to this country from Uruguay, is prepar- 
ing to take up with Harvard a proposal for a sim- 
ilar exchange with the national university of 

New York University has decided to reorganize 
the Washington Square Collegiate Department of 
the University as a liberal arts college to be 
known as the Washington Square College. The 
new college will offer in addition to the two regu- 
lar four-year courses leading to the baccalaureate 
degrees, a special four-year course which will 
combine two years of cultural training with two 
years of specialized training in commerce and 
other vocational studies. 

Statistics compiled from managers' lists at the 
University of Michigan show that 1,137 men, or 
44 per cent, of the total enrollment of the insti- 
tution, were engaged in some form of athletics 
last fall. This is an increase of 144 over last 
year's total. Football, with 212 names enrolled, 
called out the greatest number of men. Rowing 
is second with 157, while track and tennis are 
third and fourth with 143 and 112 respectively. 

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is 
the first institution in the country to establish a 
course in the study of the mechanics of air navi- 
gation. Apparatus has been installed, and the 
work of instruction will begin at once. The 
primary purpose of the course is to fit men to de- 
sign aeroplanes, and it is estimated that a year 
will be required to turn out proficient designers. 
It is planned to make the course practical as well 
as theoretical, and for this purpose special labora- 
tories, air tunnels, etc., in which the students may 
test their own aeroplanes will be constructed. 

Vaughn S. Blanchard, former Bates track cap- 
tain, and now coach of the Worcester Academy 
track team, has organized his athletes into a 
"Snow-shovel brigade." A part of their regular 
training consists in keeping the academy paths 
free from snow. 

Pennsylvania has nineteen 'varsity sports ; 
Cornell, 15; Harvard, 14; Columbia and Prince- 
ton, 13; Yale, 12; Michigan, Wisconsin, Chicago 
and Illinois, 11 ; and Dartmouth, 7. 

During the holidays Cambridge and Oxford 
made a trip to Berne, Switzerland, to play their 
annual hockey game. Cambridge won by a score 
of ten goals to one. 

Wesleyan formally opened its new $40,000 
swimming pool Friday night. The pool is 70x30 
feet, and is equipped with a filter system. 


Guy Nickolls, the old Oxford oarsman, and at 
present coach of the Leander Boat Crew of Lon- 
don, England, has cabled his formal acceptance 
of the offer to assist in coaching the Yale crews 
this coming spring. 

Figuies recently compiled show that Harvard 
ranks fourth among the colleges in registration, 
but only ninth in number of men eligible for the 
'varsity athletic teams. 

ITarvard football players will be requested to 
refrain from writing special articles for the 
newspapers next fall. Captain Brickley and 
Hardwick have already been offered $100 a game 
for special articles. 

Dr. Thomas F. Kane has been removed from 
the presidency of the University of Washington 
by the vote of the Board of Regents, and Dean 
Henry Landes has been appointed temporary 
president. As a result of this action, Governor 
Lister requested the resignation of four of the six 
members on the Board, and one other member re- 
signed voluntarily. 

Jeff Davis, president of the International Asso- 
ciation of Itinerant Workers of the World, is 
touring the West in the interests of his society. 
He is in great demand as a public speaker, and 
has delivered speeches at several of the Western

cussed. The tentative schedules were approved 
by the Council and have now to be approved by 
the Faculty. 

At the meeting of the Board of Managers held 
Saturday, Jan. 17th, the fencing schedule was dis- 
cussed, and a provisional appropriation of $35 
for the Fencing Association was voted. Track 
and Y.M.C.A. appropriations were discussed, and 
the matter of extensions was brought up. 

At another meeting of the Board of Managers 
"held Friday, Jan. 23, it was voted that holders of 
Blanket Tax tickets should be admitted to all the 
home baseball games except the Ivy Day game 
and the alumni game. The collection of the sec- 
ond semester's tax was discussed.

President Hyde gave the following advice to the 
usual small investors: "Let stocks of all kinds 
severely alone. Whoever launches them, save as 
an expert, large investor, soon or late, in nine

'62. — The following poem by Isaac Bassett 
Choate recently appeared in the Transcript: 
The idle singer of an idle song 
Goes musingly along 

Where centuries before 
Went singing so the idle troubadour. 
As fledgling swallows leave their native nest. 

Songs flutter from his breast, 

Take their adventurous flight 
Careless of praise, — careless as well of slight. 
But he, the singer, hopes his song may meet 

Some heart that's warm to greet 

The wanderer, — bid it come 
Beneath the shelter of a loving home; 
There entertain with cheerful fire and rest 

The stranger as a guest, 

And, asking for its name, 
Learn from whose heart the simple music came. 
So shall the idle songs that now we hear 

Sing on from year to year, 

And in the joy they give 
The memory of the singing heart shall live. 

'jj. — Miss Marie Ahnaghito Peary, only daugh- 
ter of Rear Admiral and Mrs. Robert E. Peary, 
made her debut in Washington recently. She met 
hundreds of friends of her parents amid floral 
offerings and under the well-worn flag which her 
father carried for sixteen years in the repeated 
expeditions that terminated only with his discov- 
ery of the north pole. 

Admiral and Mrs. Peary were also present to 
receive the congratulations of the large company, 
in which all of Washington's many sets were rep- 

Following the reception, Admiral and Mrs. 
Peary took the receiving party with a number of

For the first time in a number of years, the 
Bowdoin football team will open its season away 
from home next fall. The opening game will be 
with Amherst on Sept. 26. This is the first time 
that Amherst and Bowdoin have met on the 
gridiron since 1910. On account of so hard a 
game for the opener, varsity men must be back 
earlier than usual next fall. 

Up to a late hour before going to press, the 
schedule had not been approved by the faculty, 
but it is not thought that any change will be 

The schedule follows : 

Sept. 26 — Amherst at Amherst. 

Oct. 3 — Wesleyan at Middletown. 

Oct. 10 — Trinity at Hartford. 

Oct. 17 — Boston College at Brunswick. 

Oct. 24 — Colby at Brunswick. 

Oct. 31 — Bates at Brunswick. 

Nov. 7 — Maine at Orono. 

Nov. 14— Tufts at Medford. 


The Bowdoin relay team will race against 
Tufts at the Armory Athletic Club games at 
Providence, R. I., Feb. 21. This announcement 
was made by Manager Koughan following Bow- 
doin's refusal to compete in a four-cornered race 
at the B.A.A. last Saturday. The distance has 
not yet been decided. 

Bowdoin and Tufts last met at the B.A.A. in 
1912, Bowdoin won in the time of 3 minutes, 
13 2-5 seconds, each man running 390 yards. 

Coach Magee has sent his men over the course 
on time and although no times have been given 
out for publication, it is understood that the work 
of the men compares very favorably with that of 
teams of former years. 


Yesterday morning the collection of the second 
semester's Blanket Tax began in the Managers' 
Room in the New Gym. The Board of Managers, 
which sleeps not, is on duty from 8.30 in the 
morning until 6 o'clock at night to exchange your 
$7.50 for a long ticket conveying besides numer- 
ous admission tickets the privilege of member- 

ship in the A.S.B.C. The tickets are seven in 
number, granting admission to five baseball 
games, the dual track meet with Tech, and the 
fencing match with Yale. This is the longest list 
of admissions yet granted by the Blanket Tax. 

Mid-years is as critical a time in the affairs of 
the Blanket Tax as it is in the affairs of the 
student. In the fall with your summer's wages in 
your pocket and a football season staring you in 
the eye, it is easy to pay your tax. At mid-years, 
with term bills imminent and a lull in athletics, 
the payment of $7.50 for the support of Bow- 
doin's activities is a severe test of one's loyalty. 
During the last three semesters the Blanket Tax 
has proved itself the fairest and most efficient 
way of supporting our activities. It has received 
the splendid support which it merited, but support 
through a year and a half is not enough. The 
first year it was upheld by those by whom it was 
organized. This year it is up to us, who perhaps 
do not realize that it is still in its infancy. Shall 
we let the first half-year be successful and the 
second a partial failure or shall we put our organ- 
izations on a permanent basis? If you cannot 
pay now, get an extension. Register your loyalty 
in one way or the other. 

Board of Managers. 


Next Saturday evening, Feb. 14, for the first 
time in history a Yale team will enter Maine for 
an athletic contest. Teams from this state meet 
Yale in various sports but the Bull-Dog has never 
before entered the territory of the Polar Bear. 
The presence of the Blue in the State is sure to 
attract wide attention and many people from 
Brunswick and out of town will undoubtedly be 
drawn to the New Gymnasium Saturday night at 
8 o'clock. The contest will be one rarely seen in 
Maine — Fencing. None of the other colleges in 
the state have fencing teams, but at Bowdoin the 
sport has brought us into competition with the 
biggest colleges in the country. Because of the 
fact that fencing matches are seldom seen in this 
region, the match has excited great interest. 

The fencing team, under Coach Maroney, is 
one of the best in years. Floyd '15, a veteran of 
last year, is the main-stay of the team, while the 



other two men will be chosen from Payson '14, 
Porritt '15 and Leadbetter '16. Each man will 
fence with each of the three Yale men, making 
nine bouts in all. The fencing will take place in 
the main exercise room on a raised platform, 
around which the seats will be arranged for spec- 

If the combined efforts of Dr. Whittier and his 
gym staff, the Student Council, and the Fencing 
Manager are of any avail, the evening will be a 
memorable one. It is proposed to give people 
outside the college a chance to see the New Gym 
and the new style of work that is being done by 
the classes. For this purpose there will be ex- 
hibitions between the fencing bouts of various 
kinds of work. Picked squads of 16 men will go 
through the work done in regular gym and Ma- 
roney and Kimball will give exhibitions of tum- 
bling and the use of the apparatus. Both these 
men are experts and will give a skilled perform- 

Before 1896 Bowdoin Gym teams used to travel 
all over the State giving exhibitions. These per- 
formances were of a very high order and men 
worked as hard to make the teams as they do the 
athletic teams nowadays. The exhibitions were 
run off like a circus with a master of ceremonies, 
spangles, etc. This revival of gymnasium ex- 
hibitions recalls memories of Professor Files as a 
trapeze artist and of Dr. Dudley Sargent sitting 
in a rocking-chair on a trapeze in the Portland 
City Hall. 

The admission to the match will be free to 
holders of Blanket Tax tickets and 50 cents to 


The annual election of football manager and 
assistant football manager will be held next Sat- 
urday evening at the time of the Yale-Bowdoin 
Fencing Match. The ballots will be cast in the 
Board of Managers' Room. The voting hours 
will be from 7 to 8 p. m. 

Only members of the A.S.B.C— those who 
have paid their blanket tax tickets, or have been 
granted valid extensions are eligible to vote. 

The candidates are as follows : — 

For Football Manager— J. C. MacDonald '15, 
H. P. Verrill '15, W. Livingstone '15, alternate. 

For Assistant Football Manager— A. E. Little-

The forty-fourth annual dinne* of the Bowdoin 
College Alumni Association of New York City 

was held at the Hotel Breslin, New York City, 
Friday evening, Jan. 30, 1914. Eighty-six were 
in attendance. 

The dinner was in honor of Mr. William J. 
Curtis '75. President Horace E. Henderson '79 
was toastmaster. "The Old and New Bowdoin" 
was the principal topic of discussion. General 
Thomas H. Hubbard '57, William J. Curtis '75, 
George W. Tillson 'yy and Henry A. Huston '79 
gave reminiscences of the old days. Following 
this Professor James L. McConaughy presented 
slides illustrating the college of today and yester- 
day. This was followed by stories of the college 
of today by the younger men. These younger 
graduates were Dr. Fred H. Albee '99, Roscoe M. 
Hupper '07, John S. Simmons '09, Robert D. 
Cole '12, and Paul H. Douglass '13. The Asso- 
ciation was also fortunate in having present some 
of the younger graduates from far distant cor- 
ners of the globe, among others being E. L. 
Brigham '04, from China; J. H. Brett '05, from 
China ; C. J. Donnell '05, from the Philippines, 
and A. J. Chadbourne '07, from Mexico. One of 
the unexpected guests at the dinner was Hon. 
Henry B. Quinby '69, ex-Governor of New 
Hampshire, who made a very happy speech. 

At the dinner President Hyde spoke of gifts or 
bequests being received since the last Commence- 
ment, approximately of $100,000, and in addition 
to that, under the will of the Hon. Edwin B. 
Smith '56, the college will receive ultimately from 
his estate $500,000 or more. 

With great enthusiasm a wireless telegram was 
ordered sent to Donald B. MacMillan '98, leader 
of the Crocker Land Expedition, now wintering 
at Etah, Greenland. With him on that expedi- 
tion, as surgeon, is Dr. Harrison J. Hunt '02. 

It was also appropriate for the Association to 
introduce and sing at the dinner an original song 
dedicated to our mascot, the polar bear, our mas- 
cot being particularly appropriate since the dis- 
covery of the North Pole by Admiral Robert E. 
Peary 'yy. 

The officers for the coming year are : Presi- 
dent, George W. Tillson 'yy; vice-presidents, 
Hon. D. S. Alexander '70, Dr. Lucien Howe '70, 
Henry A. Huston '79, Edward T. Little '87, 
James D. Merriam '92, and Dr. Fred H. Albee 
'99 ; secretary, Joseph B. Roberts '95 ; correspond- 
ing secretary, George H. D. Foster '95; treasur-

Edwin Bradbury Smith, the late donor of 
Bowdoin's latest bequest, was born Oct. 3, 1832, 
at Kennebunkport, Me. He was the fourth child 
and the third son of Oliver Smith and Caroline 
(Bradbury) Smith. He prepared for college at 
Bridgton Academy under W. M. Baker (Bow- 
doin 1847). At Bowdoin he was a member of the 
Peucinian Society, of the Delta Kappa Epsilon 
Fraternity, and at graduation was elected to Phi 
Beta Kappa. He graduated from Bowdoin in the 
class of 1856. He studied law in the office of 
Hon. Edward E. Bourne (Bowdoin 1816) at 
Kennebunk and was admitted to the York County 
bar in September, 1858. Beginning the following 
March, he practiced law for three years in Limer- 
ick, Me. He enlisted as a private in the First 
Maine Battery in August. 1862, but was rejected 
at Augusta on examination. The same year he 
lesumed practice at Saco,Me., with Colonel Rufus 
P. Tapley. From 1864 to 1867 he served as dep- 
uty collector of U. S. customs. As representative 
of Saco he served in the State legislature from 
1870 to 1872 and was speaker of the House in 
1872. From 1873 to 1875 he was reporter of de- 
cisions of the Supreme Judicial Court of Maine. 
On Sept. 4, 1875 he was appointed assistant attor- 
ney general of the United States, a position he 
held till 1881, serving under Attorney Generals 
Edward Pierpont, Alphonso Taft and Charles 
Devens. He then removed to New York City and 
became a partner in the law firm known as Stan- 
ley, "Clark & Smith, with an office at 56 Pine St. 
After his resignation he was employed by the 
government as special counsel in the Guiteau 
case. His specialty, however, was the prosecu- 
tion of cases pertaining to revenue laws and he 
built up a large and lucrative practice, becoming 
one of the most notable figures in the United 

States courts. He was a member of the Asso- 
ciation of the Bar of the City of New York, the 
New York Law Institution, the New England So- 
ciety, the Union League, the Lawyers, and Uni- 
versity Clubs. He died, Jan. 5, 1914, at his apart- 
ments in the Kenmore, West 57th St., where he 
had resided, unmarried, for thirty years. 


The Boston Transcript for January 31st con- 
tained the following editorial comment on the re- 
cent gift, which we take this opportunity of re- 
printing. It is a very complimentary but accu- 
rate summary of the status of the College : 

To him that hath shall be given. It was Presi- 
dent Hyde of Bowdoin who electrified his alumni 
at a dinner a few years ago by the announcement 
that the college needed no more funds. "For the 
present," was the qualifying clause. And last 
night, at a meeting of the graduates in New York 
City, it was his agreeable duty to proclaim a be- 
quest of half a million from the late Edwin Brad- 
bury Smith of the class of '56. To the alumni, 
even those most intimate in the councils of the in- 
stitution, and, it is conjectured, to Mr. Hyde as 
well, the gift was a bolt from the blue, although 
Mr. Smith was reputed to possess considerable 
wealth and was known as a loyal graduate. His 
post-academic career may be regarded as fairly 
typical of the excellent service rendered by Bow- 
doin men to the country: lawyer, member of the 
Maine Assembly and its Speaker in 1871 ; assist- 
ant attorney general under President Grant and 
through the Hayes Administration, and an active 
participant in public affairs. The position of 
Bowdoin College is unique. It is the only men's 
college in Maine. Its enrolment is relatively 
static, at about 350 men. These come from wide- 
ly distributed localities and, in large proportion, 
as the sons of Bowdoin men, are inheritors of a 
tradition. There is also a considerable represen- 
tation from that able and masterful stock of the 
Maine families which have bred leaders of men 
for every part of the country. The urge of this 
example is bound to make the influence of the in- 
stitution intensive; the responsibility which it 
lays on youth is especially intimate and personal, 
and it is doubtful whether the long list of notable 
names among the Bowdoin graduates can be as- 
signed to accident. Such a tradition is cumula- 

The college is well equipped; its library rarely 
succeeds in reestablishing the dignity and distinc- 
tion of the English academic architecture in a 
New English academic grove, and is, added to

The Expression of Loyalty 

Much space, editorial and otherwise, has been 
devoted to the large gift to the College announced 
by President Hyde at the New York Alumni din- 
ner recently. A short account of the life of the 
generous donor appears elsewhere in this issue. 
The Orient would only turn the attention of the 
undergraduate body for a thoughtful moment to 
the significance of such alumni loyalty as was dis- 
played by Mr. Smith. In various parts of the 
country within the past month bands of Bowdoin 
men have been gathering to revive for a night 
their college memories. Theirs is an active, po- 
tent loyalty, an influence which has added to the 
name and fame of Bowdoin incalculably. And 
we as undergraduates, whatever our selfish mo- 
tives for advancing our college interests, must 
recognize increasingly this larger tie of college 
brotherhood which makes any task for our col- 

Big Indoor Athletic Event 

Elsewhere in this issue is an account of the 
Fencing Match and Athletic Exhibition to be held 
here Saturday evening. A peculiar significance 
attaches to this event. Not only is it the first 
thing of its kind but points, we hope, to the de- 
velopment of an interest in these two branches of 
winter athletic activity, which will be particularly 
strong. Other institutions support a multitude 
of minor winter sports. At Bowdoin there are 
the three: indoor track work, fencing, and gym- 
nasium work. With the long winter months when 
our sport enthusiasm is usually in abeyance we 
are now to have the opportunity to attach a 
strong college pride to these indoor sports. Let's 
all get behind the Fencing Team in their match 
with old Eli. Bowdoin should win the reputation 
of being a fencing college. 

A New Limitations Plan 

It will be remembered that the Student Council 
last year considered the matter of a plan for reg- 
ulating the number of activities in which any one 
student may participate. After investigation by 
two committees and discussion in a student meet- 
ing the matter was formally abandoned because, 
as the committee of the Council reported, "no ar- 
tificial plan such as was suggested at the student 
meeting, or has been heretofore proposed by the 
former committee of the Council, or none that its 
members can devise will adequately meet the 

The significant part of the agitation last year 
was that the Council, after its thorough discus- 
sion and study of the question, felt that the real 
evil of over-participation by individuals existed. 
A letter to the Orient by Robert Hale of the 
class of 1910, printed last year, states the situa- 
tion as follows : "The aim of such a scheme of 
limitations is, I suppose, to prevent the individual 
undergraduate from diffusing his energies over 
too wide a field of college activities to the detri- 
ment of his work and his best intellectual train- 
ing. I think the evil aimed at is a real one, and 
that an agitation for its remedy should be under- 
taken is a hopeful sign. Diffuseness and super- 
ficiality are the criticisms most reasonably and 
justly aimed at the American system of univer- 
sity education. If this reform or any other re- 
form can give the Bowdoin undergraduate deeper 
appreciations in art, literature and music and 
above all arouse him from his lethargy in matters 
of politics, then it would be shameful indeed not 



to support the measure." He proceeded to point 
out the vital weakness of the schemes proposed; 
that they by their very artificiality and rigidity 
failed to really regulate individuals most needed. 

The Orient at that time suggested that with 
the light of publicity thrown on the evil the in- 
dividuals should do away with over-participation 
by voluntary effort. But the evil still exists. 

A scheme is now proposed which seems to do 
away with the defects of artificial rules and regu- 
lation. By its nature, that of a deliberative board, 
it is elastic and is planned to treat each individual 
case. It would limit only where over-participa- 
tion exists. Its power would be advisory, but if 
we understand the nature of the evil, advisory 
power from an intelligent committee is precisely 
what is needed. Almost all of those who now 
suffer from over-participation would welcome 
such advice as a reason for refusing to take part 
in more student activities, and others could easily 
be shown the folly of the diffusion of their ener- 

This plan for a Limitations Board is now before 
the Student Council and will, we hope, soon be 
submitted to the consideration of the student body. 
The adoption of it is not in any sense radical, as 
the powers granted are merely advisory and if it 
proves a failure, it will result in no harm in hav- 
ing; been tried. Let us give it a trial. 

Our Dormitories 

The communication printed in this issue de- 
serves the thoughtful consideration of our read- 
ers. "A Student" seems to possess an insight 
into the "old" and "new" in Bowdoin life which 
is not often revealed on the campus. In this mat- 
ter of the care of the dormitories we have been 
slow to realize the new attitude which is being 
taken by those in charge of them. Time was in 
"the good old days" when they were considered 
mere necessary sleeping quarters, when no one 
had much respect for their condition or contents. 
But within the past five years the College and its 
officers have made great efforts to make the 
rooms more attractive, cleaner and more sanitary. 
The janitor service has been improved and the 
general spirit is of cooperation where possible 
and conscientious care and provision for our 
needs. This has met with response on the part of 
the students, but not as much as there should be. 
There are still those among us who believe it is a 
part of Bowdoin tradition to be "cut-ups" and 
"reckless young blocks'" rather than gentlemen, 
just as there are those who still believe a Bow- 
doin man is expressing college spirit in dissipa- 

tion and idleness rather than clean, hard work. 
But "the old order changeth" and a new spirit 
such as is expressed in the communication will 
mean the development of all that is best and most 
forceful in our campus life. 

Bowdoin's Half-Million, continued from p. 215 

that, admirably fashioned to its mechanical uses; 
its halls and dormitories are adequate, and the 
gymnasium, completed about a year ago, is one 
of the best in the country. At a meeting in Bos- 
ton a week or two ago, President Hyde remarked 
that the next need of the college was a general in- 
crease of the salaries and the establishment of 
more scholarships. From this pronouncement it 
is not amiss to conjecture that such may be the 
ends to which this newest gift will be applied. 

As when a coveted and distinguished honor is. 
awarded a man whose modesty has been as stead- 
fast as his merit and his usefulness, this bequest 
to Bowdoin College is as warm a pleasure to the 
friends and admirers of the institution as to its 


A majority of the delegates to the annual meet- 
ing of the New England Intercollegiate Associa- 
tion in Boston Saturday favored holding the 
championship field and track games in the Har- 
vard Stadium next May. Williams and Trinity- 
preferred Pratt Field, Springfield. 

The following officers were elected : President,. 
J. M. White, M.I.T.; vice-president, W. R. Still- 
man, Wesleyan; treasurer, E. J. Graves, Dart- 
mouth; secretary, P. A. Warren, Maine. The 
newly elected president will appoint his executive 
committee, the president, retiring secretary and 
treasurer serving ex-officio. The former advis- 
ory committee was re-elected as follows: Major 
F.'H. Briggs, M.I.T.; D. B. Rich, Dartmouth; C. 
D. Wadsworth, AVilliams. The executive com- 
mittee and the advisory committee will determine 
the scene of the out-door championship meet. 

The colleges represented by delegates were : 
Amherst, Bates, Bowdoin, Brown, Colby, Dart- 
mouth, Holy Cross, University of Maine, M. L 
T., Tufts, Trinity, Vermont, Wesleyan, Williams,. 
Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Massachu- 
setts Agricultural College. 


On Feb. 12, 19, and 26 there will be a series of 
Vesper Services in the Chapel, at which there 
will be talks on the general subject of "Maine 
Manhood." On Thursday, Feb. 12, George Fogg 



'02 of Portland will speak on "Making Men 
Over," on Feb. 19 A. E. Roberts of New York 
City will speak on "The College Man and the 
Rural Problem," and on Feb. 26 Dr. John Hast- 
ings Quint '97 will speak on "The College Man 
and the Church." There will be special music at 
all of these Vespers. From 4.50 to 5 p. m. there 
will be selections on the organ and during the 
meetings there will be other special music. The 
meetings will close at 5.45 p. m. in order that the 
people of the town may feel able to come. A cor- 
dial invitation is extended to everybody. 

Next Thursday George Fogg '02, who is very 
prominent in prison reform and charity work in 
Maine, will be the speaker. He has been a very 
popular speaker at rallies in the past. In college 
he combined in a rare degree the ability of the 
athlete and the scholar and was prominent in all 
activities. He is the author of "We'll Sing to 
Old Bowdoin." 

On Saturday evening, Feb. 21, the Bowdoin 
alumni of Androscoggin County will meet and 
organize. The organization meeting and banquet 
will be held in the rooms of the Lewiston Cham- 
ber of Commerce. President Hyde is expected 
to speak, some undergraduate will be invited to 
represent the student body, and the musical clubs 
will be on hand to furnish entertainment. It is 
hoped that the faculty and students of the Medi- 
cal School will also be represented. There are 
about 100 Bowdoin alumni in Androscoggin 
County, over half being in Lewiston and Auburn. 


There will be a meeting of the Cabinet Thurs- 
day afternoon at 4 o'clock at the Delta Upsilon 
House. This will probably be the last meeting of 
the Cabinet and a full attendance is necessary. 

More men are needed for the Industrial Ser- 
vice classes at Lisbon Falls. If you are inter- 
ested, confer with Bacon '15, Robinson '14, or 
take the 7.05 car for Lisbon Falls tonight. 

It is expected that Bowdoin will send about 15 
delegates to the State Conference, to be held 
Feb. 20, 21 and 22 with Colby. These delegates 
will be entertained in Waterville, their registra- 
tion fees will be paid by the Association and the 
■only expense will be reduced railroad fares. On 
Saturday morning the discussion will be led by 
Merrill '14 and at the opening meeting Friday 
MacCormick '15 will respond for the other col- 
leges to Colby's welcome. There will be a ban- 
quet Friday evening and Saturday and Sunday 

the sessions of the Conference will be held. 

The Mission Study begins next Sunday. Mr. 
McLean's course will meet at 4 p. m. at the Beta 
Theta Pi House. This course, open to the three 
upper classes, will be held at different houses and 
will take up the following subjects: Immigration, 
The City, The Rural Problem, The Social Evil, 
and Labor. The course for Freshmen, conducted 
by Mr. McConaughy and MacCormick '15, will 
be held in the dormitories, beginning next Sunday 
at 4 p. m. in Chapman's room, 2 S. Appleton. This 
course will take up in the next five Sundays the 
subjects: Do Foreign Missions Pay? America 
First? Do the Heathen Need and Want Mission- 
aries ? What are the Results of a Hundred Years 
of Work? Some Great Missionaries, including 
Bowdoin Men. 


To the Student Council: — 

The committee appointed last year to investi- 
gate the limitation of student activities reported 
finally as follows : "Your committee has come to 
the conclusion that, although there is a need for 
such limitation at Bowdoin, no artificial plan such 
as was suggested at the student meeting, or has 
been heretofore proposed by the former commit- 
tee of the Council, or none that its members can 
devise will adequately meet the problem. It rec- 
ommends that the matter of such a system of 
rules of regulation be dropped." 

As stated in the report the main reason for 
adopting this report was that the plans offered, 
consisting of point systems of limitation, and a 
system of major and minor activities, were too 
artificial. They did not limit where limitation 
was most badly needed, and they did not include 
many activities which take a great deal of time, 
such as assistantships, etc. 

The evil still exists and demands a remedy. 
Why can the following scheme not be adopted 
here : that of creating a board of student and fac- 
ulty members, with free latitude to regulate ac- 
tual cases of over-participation, a scheme that 
would be elastic enough to include all forms of 
student activity and would apply to each case in- 
dividually and fairly? 

I therefore propose the following amendment 
to the by-laws of the Associated Students of 
Bowdoin College : 

(By addition of article as follows:) 


Sec. 1. Two students elected by the Student 
Council, two Faculty members elected by the 
Faculty, together with the Dean of the College as 



chairman, shall constitute a Limitations Board. 
The four elective members shall be chosen in 
June and shall serve for one year or until their 
successors are elected. 

It shall be the duty of this Board to investigate 
all cases of individual over-participation in un- 
dergraduate activities and to recommend to the 
individual concerned such limitation as may seem 
desirable. Where possible students shall be al- 
lowed their freedom in making the limitation. 
For the guidance of students, the Board may 
make general regulations in regard to limitation 
of participation in activities, subject to the ratifi- 
cation of the Student Council. 
Resolution : 

Moved that the above by-law be adopted and 
the provision regarding election of members be 
suspended for this year, so that members may be 
elected to serve from time of adoption until June. 



To the Editor of the Orient. 

Dear Sir: — Within a fortnight someone sprin- 
kled the outside wall of Wmthrop Hall with a fire 
extinguisher. Such acts of vandalism are not in- 
frequent among us ; we are doing our share to- 
wards living up to the glorious tradition of being 
3'oung college mad-caps. Are we not also demon- 
strating that we are lacking in gratitude towards 
those who have kindly furnished us with the 
wherewithal to live ? Further, are we not show- 
ing by this disregard for the hard necessities that 
we are utterly incapable of appreciating the nice- 
ties of life with which future benefactors might 
sometime be pleased to provide us ? 

We are wont to fancy that the barrenness of 
our quarters in these old dormitories contributes 
something to the Spartan, democratic quality of 
Bowdoin life. This is a comforting and alto- 
gether human view of the situation, but there is 
an increasing number of us who would like to see 
the dormitories made more livable ; more baths 
and even some such refinement as decorated walls 
and good floors. Perhaps if we would leave off 
destroying what we have we might put ourselves 
in the way of receiving more.

were Leigh '14, Thompson '14, C. Brown '14, 
Weatherill '14, G. Eaton '14, Callahan '14, Gray 
'14, McWilliams '15 and MacCormick '15. 

Dean Sills was also present and spoke to the 
Council. He said that the faculty had advised 
him to recommend to the Student Council that it 
take up again the matter of limiting student activ- 
ities and work out a system of controlling them. 

A suggestion had been made, he said, to have a 
court of reviews, a sort of advisory board, to pass 
on special cases where men are heavily laden with 

The Dean also spoke of the pressing need of 
getting men interested in coming to Bowdoin next 

The Lunt plan and sectional clubs were dis- 

Suggestions were made by members of the 
Council and it was asked whether it would be well 
to make a census of the Freshman class to find 
out why each man in the class came to Bowdoin. 

Leigh '14 read a tentative plan of limitation, 
providing for an advisory board. This is ex- 
plained in another column. 

The Council also, 

1 Voted that a committee be appointed to look 
into the matter of interesting men to come to 
Bowdoin ; 

2 Voted that the Rally Committee cooperate 
with management of the Fencing Team to pro- 
vide entertainment at the Yale-Bowdoin match, 
Feb. 14, 1914; 

3 Voted that a Bowdoin Night be held on

Saturday night at 8 o'clock with two feet of 
snow underfoot and more arriving constantly, a 
crowd of students with a few hardy townspeople 
arrived by snow-shoe and rubber boot at the gym- 
nasium for the Yale-Bowdoin fencing match and 
the gymnastic exhibition. The big exercise room 
was flanked with settees, five deep, a space being 
left in the center for drill squads and for the 
fencing platform. At nine o'clock the Yale team 
was reported as being at an indefinite somewhere 
the other side of Portland, with the judges, mem- 
bers of the Pianelli Club of Augusta, still unac- 
counted for. Things did not look promising for 
an intercollegiate fencing match that night. 
Coach Maroney, Payson, and Porritt whetted the 
appetites of the crowd with a few exhibition 
" bouts and it was then decided to go on with the 
gymnastic exhibition and wait for the arrival of 
the. Yale team. 

The exhibition which followed was well worth 
braving the storm for. The work of the picked 
squad of men, showing the regular gymnasium 
work, was of great interest to those who did not 
know of the overthrow of the gym-is-a-farce 
theory in the last year. There was a class drill, 

followed by exercises on the horse and buck, in 
which the men showed the results of faithful 
work and in many cases of much natural ability. 
This was followed by a skilled exhibition on the 
parallel bars by Maroney and Kimball, the gym 
instructors, both undergraduates. The work of 
these men was finished and daring and brought 
forth a great deal of applause. 

The next event was an exhibition of class wres- 
tling, in which the squad demonstrated fractional 
Nelsons and showed how easy it is to down a man 
if you know how and he is willing. 

The next event was the class dancing, various 
steps calculated to tire the performer and give 
him quickness. This was followed by an exhibi- 
tion of class boxing, not lacking in enthusiasm 
but free from gore. After this part of the exhibi- 
tion a special bout was staged with Canney '16 
and Weston '16 on the firing line. Neither let 
anything get by that could be stopped without the 
use of the gloves. 

Kimball then gave an exhibition of tumbling 
with thrilling air-springs and hand walking and 
he and Leadbetter ' 16 put on a clever strong 
man act. 

After the gymnastic exhibition various devices 
were used to hold the crowd until the arrival of 
the Yale team. Both Maroney and Kimball gave 
further exhibitions on the rings and trapeze, 
Leadbetter '16 officiated at the piano, and there 
was singing of college songs. Hamblen '14 
starred in a pre-Elizabethan revival of "Casey 

At 11.20 the Yale team appeared on the floor 
after an all day's trip from Boston. The fencing 
began immediately and the bouts were run off 
quickly. Each of the Bowdoin men fenced each 
of the Yale men and Yale won seven of the nine 
bouts, Floyd winning two of his bouts. The 
good sportsmanship of the Yale team, as well as 
their excellent fencing, drew repeated applause 
from the Bowdoin supporters, who watched the 
matches with keen interest. The last match, be- 
tween Capt. Miller of Yale and Capt. Floyd of 
Bowdoin, in which Floyd was defeated, was es- 
pecially hard-fought and interesting. This was 
Floyd' s only defeat. 

The Yale team consisted of Captain E. C. Mil- 
ler, E. F. Nickerson, F. A. Cook. Bowdoin was 


represented by Captain Gordon P. Floyd '15, Ed- 
gar R. Payson, Jr., '14, and Philip W. Porritt '15. 
Summary : 


Floyd defeated Cook, 5-3 ; Miller defeated Por- 
ritt, 5-4; Nickerson defeated Payson, 5-2. 


Cook defeated Porritt, 5-4; Miller defeated 
Payson, 5-1 ; Floyd defeated Nickerson, 5-2. 


Cook defeated Payson, 5-1 ; Nickerson defeated 
Porritt, 5-1 ; Miller defeated Floyd, 5-3. 

The judges were Charles C. White, M. E. Saw- 
telle, and Charles F. Philodeau of the Pianelli 
Fencing Club of Augusta. The scorers were J. C. 
Ogden of Yale, and A. L. Pratt of Bowdoin. 

In spite of delay, storm, and defeat, the even- 
ing was one which will be remembered for a long 
time as one of the biggest events of the year. 


The winner of the Henry W. Longfellow Grad- 
uate Scholarship has been announced as Kenneth 
Allan Robinson '14. Robinson will probably study 
in Europe. In college he has been very promi- 
nent in literary work. As chairman of the Quill, 
he raised that publication to a high standard of 
excellence. He has won the College Song Com- 
petition, the Hawthorne Prize, the David Sewall 
Premium, and the Class of '68 Prize Speaking. 

The Charles Carroll Everett Scholarship has 
not been awarded and it is probable that for fi- 
nancial reasons the award will not be made this 


Saturday evening, at the 44th annual meeting 
and banquet of the Bowdoin Alumni of Portland, 
of 70 who had notified the dinner committee that 
they would be present, 43 sat down at the tables. 
Such was the result of the snow storm which de- 
layed steam cars and electrics. But nevertheless 
the occasion was one long to be remembered, the 
dinner was good and the speeches were excellent. 
The banquet was served in the State of Maine 
room at the Falmouth Hotel. 

President Hyde was unable to be present but 
the college was ably represented by the dean, 
Professor Sills, and Professors Bell and Elliott. 
The after-dinner speaking was begun by the pres- 
ident of the association, Frederick O. Conant, of 
the class of 1880, who touched on the changes in 
the college and the still greater changes in the 
industrial and commercial world. In closing he 
called upon Professor Sills to speak in the ab- 
sence of President Hyde. Professor Sills in em- 

phasizing the close cooperation between the col- 
lege and alumni, spoke of the Alumni Council, an 
organization of twelve alumni to be elected next 
May from which he predicted results beneficial 
to the college. He said that the fact that nearly 
half the students at Bowdoin come from outside 
Maine reflects to a certain extent on the alumni 
of the State. Rev. A. D. Leavitt, pastor of the 
State Street Church, a graduate of Yale, was the 
next speaker. Mr. Leavitt's speech was one of 
the best of the evening, full of witty sayings and 
droll stories, and kept everybody laughing. But 
in closing he became more serious and praised 
Bowdoin and spoke of President Hyde as one of 
the best and ablest college presidents in the coun- 
try. At this point President Conant turned the 
meeting over to the toastmaser, Joseph B. Reed 
'83, who called upon Dr. Frederick H. Gerrish. 
Dr. Gerrish said he had attended all the dinners 
of this alumni association since its organization, 
44 years ago. Continuing he said that he believed 
the present number of students, about 350, plenty 
large, and that no class should have more than 75 
pupils. "I would on the other hand," said Dr. 
Gerrish, "increase the number of the faculty, I 
would have the entrance conditions more rigid 
and admit no students on teacher's certificates." 
He said that he would like to see Bowdoin College 
so great that it will dare to be small. Other 
speeches were made by George E. Fogg, Ralph O. 
Brewster, Professor Herbert C. Bell and Profes- 
sor G. R. Elliott. The exercises were closed by 
the singing of Phi Chi. 

At the business meeting the usual reports were 
received and accepted, and the following officers 
chosen for the coming year : 

President — David W. Snow. 

Secretary and Treasurer — Edward S. Anthoine. 

Nominating Committee — Harry C. Wilbur, 
Charles L. Hutchinson, Alfred B. Cook. 

Dinner Committee — W. B. Drummond, Leland 
G. Means, Robert Pennell. 

The choice of a vice-president was left in the 
hands of the nominating committee to be reported 
to the president and secretary. 

Seated at the tables were the following: Prof. 
Kenneth C. M. Sills, dean of the college; G. R. 
Elliott, professor of English Literature ; Herbert 
C. Bell, professor of history and politics ; Freder- 
ick O. Conant, class of 1880; Dr. Frederick O.

The members of the Fencing Team elected 
Gordon P. Floyd '15 captain, last Wednesday 
night. Floyd is also manager of the team and it 
is due to his efforts that Bowdoin has as good a 
fencing schedule as any college in the country. 
The new captain is a veteran of last year's team. 
In the match with Yale Saturday night he won 
two of his three bouts, being defeated only by 
Captain Miller of the Yale team. 


At the last meeting of the faculty, permission 
was granted the juniors to use the New Gym for 
their dance Friday evening, March 6. The per- 
mission was granted, however, on two conditions : 
First, that the dancing stop at one o'clock and, 
second, that there shall be no dancing in any of 
the fraternity houses after that hour. The dance 
is scheduled to begin at eight o'clock. The com- 
mittee in charge is West '15, chairman; McKen- 
ney '15, Verrill '15, Smith '15 and L. N. Stetson 
'15. It is probable that only one Assembly will 
be held this year and every effort will be made to 
make the affair a big one. The cost will be two 
dollars for each couple. 


Seven men still remain in the competition for 
the relay team which is to race Tufts at the Prov- 
idence Armory next Saturday evening. The past 
week has been spent in hard practice, including 
several time trials and Coach Magee f eels- confi- 
dent of having a fast team. Five men will be 
taken on the trip and the final cut was to be made 
yesterday, too late for the Orient to obtain the 
results. The candidates are Fox '14, Wright '14, 
Smith '15, McWilliams '15, McElwee '16, Ireland 
'16, Crosby '17. 


At three o'clock this afternoon in Memorial 
Hall the trials for "Twelfth Night" will be held. 
Professor Elliott has shown much interest in the 
play and has been of much help in the prelimi- 
nary work. 

On Feb. 26 the Dramatic Club will give a per- 
formance in Camden, and on Feb. 27 they will 
play at Rockland. The Dramatic Club has in its 
possession a one-act play which it intends to pre- 
sent at one of the rallies. 


Although the number of payments of the Blan- 
ket Tax was not as large this semester as last 
fall, the amount paid in compares very favorably 
with that of last year. In the three days of col- 
lection 214 men paid and extensions were granted 
to 96 others for periods of varying length. The 
payment of these extensions should be made as 
soon as they fall due in order that the various 
organizations may not have to wait until the end 
of the year to settle their affairs. Payment may 
be made to MacCormick '15 at the D. U. house or 
to any member of the Board of Managers. 


At the Vesper service at 5 p. m. last Thursday 
George Fogg '02 gave an interesting talk, based 
on personal experience, on prison reforms and 
charity work, with especial emphasis on the needs 
of Maine. At this service Professor Hutchins 
played a clarinet solo. 

Next Thursday at 5 o'clock Mr. Albert E. Rob- 
erts of New York, Secretary of the National 
Country Y. M. C. A. work, will speak on "Rural 
Manhood." Mr. Roberts was recently a delegate 
to the Rural Congress in Europe and will be a 
speaker at the State Conference in Waterville 
this week. 


The delegates to the conference at Waterville 
are: Merrill '14, C. A. Brown '14, MacCormick 
'15, Sampson '17, Chapman '17, Moran '17, Wil- 
ley '17, McConaughy '17, Churchill '16, Eaton '17, 
McKinnon '15, Crossman '16. The next deputa- 
tion will be to Windham on March 8. 

At the Boys' Conference in Lewiston Saturday 
President Hyde spoke on Educational Efficiency. 

Sunday morning at the Church on the Hill it 
was announced that there would be a social to- 
night at which the glee and mandolin clubs would 
entertain. The college men were especially in-

The Limitations Scheme 

We are glad to hear from the chairman of the 
committee on limitations of last year's Student 
Council, and realize that the opinion of one who 
has made the subject a special study is of great 
value in consideration of the present scheme. 
The suggestions made in his communication have 
been considered by the Council. The original 
draft of the present plan placed final powers of 
regulation within the Board, but this was elimi- 
nated at the Council's suggestion. The second 
suggestion, as to the enforcing of its provisions, 
is included in the plan as stated : that is, the Board 
itself shall enforce whatever decisions it has the 
right to make. As its recommendations are le- 
gally merely advisory the second change suggest- 
ed is not significant. It is probable that experi- 
ence will result finally in granting the Board final 
regulative powers and declaring any student in- 

eligible for any office or offices, but it is also wise 
to reserve such power until it is ascertained what 
success the Board meets with in remedying the 
present evils by milder advisory methods. 

The Athletic Council 

Among the various communications printed in 
this issue there are two from members of the 
Athletic Council in reply to the recent editorial 
comment on the policy of that body. It is grati- 
fying to know that the body in question has such 
firm convictions of its own rectitude. We have 
always been of the opinion that its membership 
has spent a great deal of time and work in un- 
selfish service of Bowdoin's athletic interests. 
Far be it from us to minimize its good intentions. 
We could not, within our proper sphere, attempt 
further to point out the weakness and inefficiency 
of that organization without becoming personal 
and controversial. Gladly do we leave the whole 
matter in the hands of the student body and in- 
terested alumni, trusting that our discussion may 
have brought the matter to the attention of those 
who are in a position to bring about changes. We 
are aware that our criticism is merely destruc- 
tive and as such bears little weight. 

We would not wish to leave the impression, 
however, that our investigations were hurried. 
They were the results of four years' observation 
and contact. In the nomination for managers, 
for instance, it would not be our purpose to have 
the manager's personal opinion of any weight as 
opposed to the opinion of the Council. But the 
recommendations of a manager are, as in the case 
cited, the result and goal of the whole system of 
competition : that is, the expert ranking of the 
person or two persons who have assigned the 
tasks and watched the work of the candidates. 
Recommendations such as this are of more value 
than a personal opinion. They should not be 
overruled by any opinions, but by facts, such as 
scholarship or character. If this system is not 
carried out the whole competitive system is, at 
best, a partial election rather than nomination by 
the Council. We might take up the other points 
of controversy and bring out numerous instances 
where the Council has failed to give notice of 
meetings to managers, of the system of organiza- 
tion which makes necessary a temporary chair- 
man at each meeting, but such discussion would 
be fruitless. Suffice it to say that we firmly be- 
lieve that there is substantial dissatisfaction with 
that body extending over a period of years, which 
we hope will express itself sooner or later in a 
constructive way. 



Unpaid Pledges 

In checking up the blanket tax for the last 
semester it was found that for the first time six or 
seven men were granted extension and were 
thereby given membership in the A.S.B.C. with 
all its privileges and then did not meet their obli- 
gation when the date of payment came. Such 
entire lack of spirit and fairness and honesty was 
hardly forseen by those in charge of the collec- 
tion of the tax. It was supposed that there might 
be some eight or ten men in college who cared 
little enough for college activities and interests 
to become a member of the Associated Students, 
but it was not thought that any would become 
members under false pretences and would break 
their pledge to pay their tax. Such cases should 
be taken up by the Board and regulations made 
which will make it an impossible thing for this 
neglect of common interests to be accomplished 
without the loss of respectability and respect. 

Owing to the bad weather Saturday, the Stu- 
dent Council decided to postpone again the elec- 
tion of the manager and assistant manager of the 
1914 football team, scheduled for that evening. 
No definite plans had been announced when the 
Orient went to press, but the election will prob- 
ably be held some time during the next week. 


Bangor, Maine, February 6, 1914. 
To the Editor of the Orient : — 

My attention has been called to an editorial on 
"The Athletic Council Policy." The tenor of that 
editorial is such that some reply on behalf of the 
Council may not be uncalled for. The editorial 
criticizes, first, the action of the Council in the 
recent instance referred to, second, the general 
policy and the methods of the Council, and, third, 
the constitution of the Council. 

As regards the decision of the Council with 
reference to the B.A.A. Meet : I may speak of this 
as of something in which I had no direct part, 
since I was not present at the meeting at which 
the matter was discussed and decided. I may, 
.however, say that after having received the full 
information that was then at the disposal of the 
Council I am clearly of the opinion that the de- 
cision was well made. The editorial is distinctly 
in error in indicating that the opinion of the track 
coach was not considered. I am advised that that 
opinion was at the first strongly opposed to par- 
ticipation in the proposed relay race, for reasons 
that seemed to the Council valid and sufficient, 

and that when the opinion was reversed for rea- 
sons best known to the coach himself, the Council 
by unanimous vote of the members present stood 
by their original opinion. I may also say that the 
Council still holds by its decision, while regretting 
that this is not satisfactory to the writer of the 
editorial, and that it is confirmed in its belief by 
the endorsement of one of the most competent 
authorities in New England. 

Now as regards the "consistent policy" of the 
Council. It is perhaps unfortunate that the writer 
of the editorial had not taken the trouble to ascer- 
tain the actual facts before publishing an alleged 
statement of facts. To characterize the action 
of the Council in the instance above referred to 
as a blunder, is easy and simple. As a mere ex- 
pression of an individual opinion no serious ob- 
jection may be taken to the remark, although 
backed by the authority of the Orient. Serious 
objection may, however, be taken to the implica- 
tion that it is the policy of the Council to take 
action upon important matters affecting any 
branch of athletics without consulting manager 
or coach. It is, and has for years been, the cus- 
tom of the Council to obtain the fullest possible 
expression of opinion from coaches and mana- 
gers, and to give due consideration to such opin- 
ions. This does not imply that the decisions of 
the Council will in all cases conform to these 
opinions. On the contrary, the Council regards 
managers and coaches as advisers rather than as 
dictators. In this connection may be instanced 
the recent case referred to in the editorial, when 
the recommendations of an athletic manager as 
to nominations for assistant manager were fol- 
lowed only in part. In this particular instance 
the manager presented several names of candi- 
dates, all of whom he recommended as competent 
and two of whom received his special endorse- 
ment. The Council did not choose to nominate 
those two specially endorsed candidates, but nom- 
inated others from the list presented. Now this 
may have been "arbitrary," as suggested by the 
editorial. It is difficult, however, to see that it 
would be less arbitrary to have selections of man- 
agers imposed upon the Council. If there has 
been any doubt about this, it may as well be clear- 
ly understood that the Council proposes to select 
its own candidates and that it does not recognize 
the manager of any athletic team of one year as 
the dictator of the policy of that branch of ath- 
letics for the next year. Now, as always, the 
Council is glad to avail itself of the suggestions 
of past, as of present, managers, but as it accepts 
responsibility for its own decisions it feels com- 
pelled to decide for itself in the light of the best 

2 26 


information obtainable. 

It may not be necessary at this time to attempt 
any reply to the remarks of the editorial relative 
to the organization of the Council and its methods 
of doing business, especially as the criticism is so 
very general. If the readers of the Orient de- 
sire any statement of organization and methods 
it may be given later. 

Coming now to the alleged lack of care in the 
choice of representatives in the Council compe- 
tent to decide upon athletic policies. The charge 
may point in either or all of three directions, and 
Ave are not told whether the Faculty, the alumni, 
-or the undergraduates are most at fault in their 
selections, each of these bodies electing its own 
representatives. In view of this alleged lack of 
due care in selection, it seems remarkable that the 
results have not been even more unfortunate than 
the editorial seems to regard them. Indeed, so 
far as most of the members of the Council are 
concerned it would not seem easy to find repre- 
sentatives more in touch with Bowdoin's athletic 
interests. As regards the Faculty members. One 
of them has for many years been far more inti- 
mately associated with Bowdoin athletics than 
any other man. To question his competency to 
decide athletic policies would be farcial. The 
other faculty member of the Council has ap- 
proved himself as a very faithful and valuable as- 

As regards the undergraduate members. Those 
readers of the Orlent who may not be so fully in 
touch with present day conditions at the College 
as they would like to be may infer from the edi- 
torial that they are good students, but men whose 
connection with athletics is confined to attendance 
at meetings of the Council when they discuss and 
decide athletic policies in an academic way but 
with very little real knowledge of the things they 
are discussing. It may interest these readers to 
know something more about these members. 
They are: — the captain of last year's football 
team, who is also one of the best baseball players 
in college; the captain of this year's baseball 
team, who was a valuable member of last year's 
football team ; the captain of the track team ; the 
first baseman on the baseball team; one of the 
best football players, who is also prominent in 
track athletics and in the fencing squad. Surely 
these men are not completely out of touch with 
present day athletics. 

It may not be necessary at this time to say 
much about the alumni members of the Council, 
particularly as but one of them happened to be 
present at the recent meeting whose action seems 
to have occasioned the latest editorial criticism 
of the Council. If these members are not satis- 

factory to the Alumni Association whose repre- 
sentatives they are, the remedy is apparent and

Chairman Athletic Council. 

Brunswick, Maine, Feb. 7, 1914. 
To the Editor of the Orient, 

Dear Sir: — The recent editorial in the Orient 
attacking the policy of the Athletic Council con- 
tains certain statements which are unfounded and 
which the Athletic Council would like to have 

In the first place it was stated that the coach 
was not asked to be present at the meeting of the 
Council which took up the matter of the B.A.A. 
race. Now it has always been a precedent that 
athletic coaches are welcome at all meetings of 
the Athletic Council which have directly to do 
with the sport in which they are interested. I 
personally, notified the track coach of the meet- 
ing which was to take up the matter of the B.A.A. 
race and asked him to attend. It is, then, scarce- 
ly true that he was not invited to offer advice or 
participate in the discussion upon which the de- 
cision was made. However, since he was not 
there, Dr. Whittier, Manager Koughan, and my- 
self gave what we understood to be his opinion of 
the matter. 

Your editorial goes on to say that action is 
very often taken "without the advice of managers 
or coaches." In this case Manager Koughan was 
present and not only brought the matter to the at- 
tention of the Council, but advised against enter- 
ing a four-cornered race. I cannot remember a 
meeting at which there has not been present at 
least one manager. 

Then the editorial said that the reasons given 
for not participating in this race were "purely 
technical." On the contrary the matter was taken 
up from the standpoint of policy and was consid- 
ered thoroughly with reference to its bearing on 
the whole question of Bowdoin athletics. This 
is no place to discuss the arguments which were 
urged for and against the proposition, but it is 
sufficient to state that "technical considerations" 
formed only a part of the discussion.

Captain of the Track Team. 

To the Editor of the Orient: — 

In reading the last issue of the Orient. I was 
very much interested to find that the supposed 
corpse of the limitations scheme was showing- 
signs of resuscitation, that it has not been dead 
but merely suffering from suspended animation. 



The question of the limitation of undergrad- 
uate activities is a plan of college policy that is 
full of interest for many. I am particularly con- 
cerned with it for while on the committee which 
took the matter in charge last year, I conducted a 
questionnaire covering nearly every prominent 
American college and university. The results of 
this investigation clearly showed an almost na- 
tional evil accompanied by signs of increasing 
realization of the problem. 

It was my unhappy lot to draw up a plan to re- 
strict the activities of our undergraduates and I 
soon found that to lay down definite rules was as 
difficult a task as to draw up a schedule of tariff 
rates. From my experience I am convinced that 
the problem is by far too complex to be solved by 
artificial means. 

The proposed plan seems to me to obviate these 
difficulties. The committee can exercise its dis- 
cretion and not be bound by strict rules. The 
composition of the Board is such as to ensure ma- 
ture and thoughtful action. The plan is parallel 
to the universal tendency in public administration 
of the present time. The various public service 
commissions, the indus
