BOWDOIN ORIENT 



VOL. XLIV 



BRUNSWICK. MAINE, APRIL 7, 1914 



NO. 1 



COACH CLEMENT 

Bowdoin may be regarded as fortunate in se- 
curing the services of Wallace O. Clement to 
coach the baseball team this spring. The new 
coach is a college man, but not a college graduate, 
and has had experience with both college and 
professional baseball. 

Coach Clement is a Maine man and started his 
baseball career at Edward Little Hiffh School in 




Coach Clement 
Auburn, where he was also prominent in track 
and football, winning in one year the ioo and 
220 yard dashes and shotput at the Bowdoin In- 
terscholastic. He was captain of both baseball 
and "football at Edward Little and played on the 
football team with "Cope" Philoon. He entered 
Tufts in the fall of 1900 and immediately made a 
place in the backfield on the football team, play- 
ing at half and full. During the winter he com- 
peted in track and in the spring tied for first 
place in a trial heat of the 100 yard dash at the 
New England Intercollegiate, but failed to place 
in the finals. 

But it was in baseball that he achieved his 
greatest success. He played first base and in the 



field on Tufts in the spring of 1901 and receiving 
an offer to enter professional baseball did not re- 
turn to college the next year. He started with 
Jersey City of the then Eastern (now Interna- 
tional) League, and was with that team at inter- 
vals for eight years. In 1908 he was sold to the 
Philadelphia Nationals and in 1909 to the Brook- 
lyn Nationals, finishing the season with that 
team. In 1910 he was sent back to Jersey City 
and played there for another year, when he was 
released to Troy of the New York State League. 
It was here that Clement had the misfortune to 
sprain his knee. He was sold to Worcester of 
the New England League, finishing up last year 
there. 

In 1907 he won first place in the circling the 
bases contest at a meet in Cincinnati, in which 20 
leagues were represented. His time for the dis- 
tance was 14J/2 seconds. He has a gold medal to 
show for this contest. Another medal of interest 
which he owns is one presented him by the Jersey 
City fans when that team won the Eastern 
League championship. 



BASEBALL PROSPECTS 

Nearly 30 men, including nine veterans, re- 
ported for the first baseball practice in the new 
gym last Friday. The number of candidates was 
so large that the men were -divided into two 
squads. Bad weather has prevented outdoor 
work, but it is hoped that Whittier Field will be 
dried off by this afternoon. 

The men are all in good condition and only 
rare cases of lameness have been reported. 
Coach Clement is a man whose long experience at 
the game will enable him to keep his men in con- 
dition and a team with all kinds of "pep" should 
face Harvard in the opening game at Cambridge 
a week from today. 

No probable lineup of the team can be given at 
this early date. Of the nine veterans, two are 
out for the box, one for catcher, four for the in- 
field and two for the outfield. In addition to 
these men, a number of Freshmen and second 
string men of last year are considered likely can- 
didates for berths in the opening game. 

Men who have reported up to Saturday night 
are as follows: catchers, Captain LaCasce '14,

ant Manager Dunn '16 is manager, will probably 
play a number of the preparatory schools in this 
section of the state. 



QUILL REVIEW 

The report in The Treadmill of great Pan's 
death is grossly exaggerated. The imagination 
of the American undergraduate as yet survives, 
survives bruisings and batterings, neglect and 
underfeeding — nor does the reviewer mean mere- 
ly the species of imagination displayed by the 
undergraduate who recently described for him 
the wondrous, beast-compelling power of Othel- 
lo's lyre. The five contributors to the February 
Quill, compositely, at least, still imagine, imagine 
and meditate, see visions and dream dreams, wan- 
der reflective in the haunts of men, read, rumi- 
nate, punctuate. 

Though the actual Stevensons are, will be, 
"peaceful loafers," at times, despite college activ- 
ities ; though they will not even imitate Diogenes, 
roll their tubs around, and play they are busy; 
and though the possible Stevensons generally 
follow their half-brothers' example, there are 
doubtless many actual and possible lovers of 
Stevenson and of things Stevensonian whose love 
is prostrated and killed by their unremitting labor 
in the treadmill, by their always doing and never 
being, by their surrendering themselves uncondi- 
tionally to "that last infirmity of noble minds, and 
first infirmity of weak ones." Such men would 
do well, befoie accepting their next "college 
honor," to ponder this Quill essayist's vigorous, 
spirited elaboration of President Wilson's w-ell- 
known circensian dictum. On the other hand, 
now that the American college has become a 
miniature United States, there must necessarily 
be in it many men who simply cannot enjoy what 
a Stevenson enjoys, or idle as a Stevenson idles, 
men who with some propriety feel that idling may 
profit a Stevenson and yet fail to profit a John 
Jones. It is not suicidal for these men to throw 
themselves "back over ears" — something of a 
feat, by the way — "into the whirlpool." 

The love of learning, the sequestered nooks, 

And all the sweet serenity of nooks 
can be to these men only the lesser part of col- 
lege. They will never see life whole, they will 
never even be all mankind's epitome, but they 
will go out into the treadmill of the world better, 
readier, and happier workers than if they had 
never known at all the things that seemed to them 
the lesser part and those that seemed the greater 
part of college. 

As to overshoes — . Let no one be misled by 
the essayist's style — "familiar but not coarse, and 
elegant but not ostentatious" save for one or two 
loose constructions (e. g. page 33, last sentence) 
and "Don't smile, Mr. Reader" — into believing 
that those articles are effete, domesticated, at 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



best, merely amicable. The reviewer has worn 
them for two years without a qualm. Had it 
been umbrellas, now, — to be sure, "domesticated" 
would hardly do. But overshoes ! Why, by any 
other name, the overshoe goes hand in hand, so 
to speak, with cachinnations and crimes robus- 
tious and primitive as you please. The stories 
about rubbers and galoshes ! Philadelphia Lucy 
cleaning her gums on the door-mat ! Dauntless 
Desmond, the Gumshoed Sleuth ! No, the over- 
shoe is wild, wild, and is worn by beneficient 
wildmen who better the world, as all beneficient 
wildmen must, not by their unreasonableness but 
by their hyper-reasonableness. 

To Robert Louis Stevenson is on the whole a 
poem of genuine insight and feelirfg. The third 
stanza, however, is poor. "Strong men weeping" 
has become a barren phrase, and "I've felt the 
chill from a dream dragged under" has only the 
merit of rhyming with "High on a hill by the 
sea's calm wonder," itself of dubious merit as a 
description of the grove on Mount Vaea. Would 
Mrs. Stevenson ..herself have used the words 
"gloomed" and "fierce" in stanzas four and five? 
The reviewer wonders if Mr. Robinson, in his al- 
together delightful Bucolic Ballads, refrained for 
reasons of domestic economy from including in 
his "laudative bleat" the chief charm of Steven- 
son's cow — 

She gives me cream with all her might 
To eat with apple-tart. 
Perhaps he is more abreast of this scientific age 
than his reviewer, and heard long ago of the 
soya bean which is to relieve cows of all their 
earthly duties save pointing morals and adorning 
tails. 

The rest of the verse in this Quill is good, too. 
Where the Lost Ships Go is properly languorous 
and sombre. It would perhaps be pedantic to in- 
quire about the precise degree of murkiness 
brooding over this place — somewhere off Xanadu, 
as it is — even though its being a "hazy dim" and 
"shadowy" and "the dark" confuses one. Incense, 
according to one theory of the reviewer's, alle- 
gorizes "Video meliora proboque, deteriora se- 
quor." (The reviewer does not apologize for the 
Latin: he earnestly hopes "W" will have as hard 
a time with it as he himself has had with' the in- 
cense.) He expected the poem to "turn out a 
sonnet" : the expectation was frustrated, but he 
still approves, in a clouded way, of these four- 
teen lines. The Crossing appears to be more in- 
timately subjective than most Quill verse. Not 
that is is necessarily a defect — on the contrary. 
The second stanza is the only one that the re- 
viewer has scored: he objects to "list," questions 
the "purr" of the "singing" rail, and feels that 



"stuttering fear" is rather too darking, after all.

INTERCOLLEGIATE FENCING 

Harvard won the largest number of bouts in 
the preliminaries of the northern division of the 
Intercollegiate Fencing Association, which were 
held in Boston, March 28. Harvard won 14 of 
the bouts, Yale 11, and Bowdoin 2. 

As a result of this meet, Harvard and Yale 
will go to New York on April 10 to compete 
against the winning teams of the other divisions 
of the association. 

The best individual work was done by Capt. 
Miller of the Yale team, who won six bouts and 
lost none. The biggest scorers for Harvard were 
Von Nardroff and Damon, who each won five 
and lost one. 

The individual scores were : 

Harvard. — Von Nardroff, won 5, lost I ; Dam- 
on, won 5, lost 1 ; Putnam, won 3, lost 1 ; Aylen, 
won 1, lost 1. 

Yale. — Miller, won 6, lost none; Cook, won 
none, lost 2 ; Downey, won 3, lost 3 ; Nickerson, 
won 2, lost 2. 

Bowdoin. — Floyd, won 1, lost 5; Leadbetter, 
won none, lost 6; Hargraves, won 1, lost 5. 



DELTA UPSILON DANCE 

The Bowdoin Chapter of Delta Upsilon held its 
Easter dance, Friday evening, March 27, in the 
fraternity dance hall. The committee composed 
of Perkins '15, Knowlton '15 and Stride '17 made 
the affair in every way a success. The music for 
an order of 21 dances was furnished by Stetson's 
Orchestra. Among the guests were : Misses 
Florence Russell, Mary Allen, Ruth Blackwell, 
Brunswick; Fidelia Woodbury, Elizabeth Barton, 
Alnah James, Portland; Evelyn Plummer, Made- 
lyn Plummer, Lisbon Falls; Louise Harford,

The New Orient Board 

Another year has brought its change in the 
editorial staff of the Orient and the new Board 
faces a year of responsibility and opportunity. 
On the part of the editorial department, the re- 
sponsibility involves the discussion in an impar- 
tial manner of such questions as are of interest 
to the student body. It involves criticism where 
it is due, and praise where it is due, but at all 
times criticism or praise as just and broad as lies 
in our power to give. Our ultimate aim, as was 
that of our predecessors, is to serve the college 
community. Whatever means we may have to 
adopt to do this most truly, we feel sure of the 
cooperation and interest of those whom we serve. 



We will welcome constructive criticism, sugges- 
tions, or contributions and communications from 
any who are interested in the College and its wel- 
fare. 

For our immediate predecessor, Mr. Leigh, we 
have only the highest praise. He has set a stand- 
ard in editorial writing which those who come 
after him will find it no easy task to maintain. 
He has had a rare insight into student affairs 
which, coupled with a vigorous and finished style 
of expression, has made these columns a potent 
force. With regard to the rest of the paper, his 
suggestion and advice have been at all times of 
the greatest value. 



Doctor Gerrish's Question 

It is with great pleasure that we print in an- 
other column an article by Doctor Gerrish on the 
question of the size of the future Bowdoin. To 
the discussion of this question Doctor Gerrish has 
brought the eloquence which characterizes his 
writings and the devotion and loyalty which have 
always led him to keep up an active interest in 
the College and its affairs. His vision of the 
Utopian Bowdoin and his belief in the possibility 
of attaining this ideal are refreshing to the aver- 
age man whose thoughts do not see very far into 
the future and what it may hold for us. 

All will agree to the excellence of the ideal 
Bowdoin pictured but not all will agree to the ad- 
visability of Bowdoin's accepting that ideal to the 
rejection of all others. The restriction of our 
numbers to such an extent that mere admission 
to Bowdoin would be a distinction sought by men 
from all over the country presents difficulties 
which may in part offset the advantages of such a 
unique institution. 

Granted that the smallness of the student body, 
the personal contact of professor and student, 
and the bond of man-to-man fellowship existing 
between them are things which make Bowdoin 
what it is today, can we not keep the last two 
while we gradually change the first ? Cannot the 
future Bowdion live up to the high standard set 
by the past and at the same time offer to more 
men the advantages of our College ? No member 
of the student body will seriously advocate the 
lowering of our standards in the least to admit 
men who from certain standpoints are desirable. 
Yet there are many who feel that our standards 
may well be raised together with our numbers, 
with due consideration for outside conditions. 
Bowdoin in the past has drawn many of her best 
men from the ranks of those who attend the me- 
diocre preparatory schools of Maine. They are 
men who, handicapped by the necessity of attend- 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



ing a school which gives insufficient training, 
have found the passing of our entrance require- 
ments an almost impossible task. With a Bow- 
doin which would attract serious-minded and 
earnest men from the remotest regions, there is 
grave danger that we would close our doors to a 
body of men near at hand who are equally seri- 
ous-minded and earnest. These men, given what 
Bowdoin offers now, have shown themselves to 
be deserving of the advantages of such an insti- 
tution, and we may well consider carefully deny- 
ing them these advantages. 

The argument against such a course which will 
present itself most quickly to most undergrad- 
uates is the athletic argument. With entering 
classes of seventy-five men, picked most rigidly, 
could Bowdoin hope to compete with other col- 
leges on anything approaching an equal basis? 
To be sure, athletic competition is not essential 
to the success of a college, but it has come to 
mean much in the college life of today. Without 
the stimulus of this competition, it is doubtful if 
men would engage in athletics within the college 
to any great extent. Thus we come back to the 
old question of whether college men devote too 
much time to athletics, competitive and other- 
wise. The outside world and the college man are 
accustomed to give widely differing answers to 
this question. We feel that the average college 
man is a better man because he has participated 
in clean, healthy athletics of some sort and set 
for himself ideals of athletics as well as of schol- 
arship, and that the athletic argument has a firm 
footing. 

The present policy of the College, that of grad- 
ual expansion by reaching out to men in the pre- 
paratory schools, interesting them in Bowdoin, 
and getting a large number of applicants from 
which to pick the entering class, seems to us a 
policy which will make Bowdoin a place where 
numbers will not detract from quality, but rather 
aid in the improvement of that quality. 

It is useless to attempt a complete discussion of 
the proposed policy here, yet we feel that discus- 
sion will clear the air of many vague doubts as 
to the wisdom of Bowdoin's present policy. We 
will welcome communications on the subject from 
alumni or undergraduates. 



ALPHA KAPPA BANQUET 

Dr. Adam P. Leighton, Jr., read a paper on 
"The Cause and Cure of Eciampsia" at a ban- 
quet given March 25 at Riverton Casino by the 
Alpha Kappa Kappa Medical Fraternity. After 
dinner there was a short discussion, which was 
followed by a social hour. Those present were: 



Henry P. Merrill, Frank Y. Gilbert, Ralph 
Faulkingham, Adam P. Leighton, Jr., Alfred W. 
Haskell, O. E. Haney, Clinton N. Peters, Benja- 
min M. Mikels, J. C. Oran, Leon S. Lippincott, 
Carl Z. Dennett, William E. Buck, H. G. Hamil- 
ton, William L. Ieavenworth, E. R. Blaisdell, Al- 
lan Woodcock, John Blethen, N, R. Pillsbury, F. 
A. Smith, G. H. Johnson, F. N. Knapp, C. D. 
Gray, M. P. Hanson. 



SHALL BOWDOIN HAVE GREAT CLASSES OR 
SMALL? 

One often hears regret expressed that the stu- 
dent-body at Bowdoin is not larger; and the 
boards, the faculty, and the alumni, as organiza- 
tions and as individuals, are sometimes re- 
proached for their failure to adopt measures de- 
signed to overcome this alleged defect. 

With this attitude I am not in sympathy ; and 
my purpose in this article is to present for the 
consideration of those who are interested, argu- 
ments in favor of keeping the number of students 
small — even making it less than at present. 

There seems to be no general appreciation of 
the fact that no student pays by his tuition-fees 
for the education which he receives. The physi- 
cal equipment of the College — grounds, buildings, 
laboratory outfits, libraries, etc. — have cost vast 
sums of money, almost all of this having been 
given by generous lovers of the higher education ; 
and a moderate interest charge on this now un- 
productive, but absolutely indispensable, property 
could legitimately be reckoned in computing the 
cost of the education given here. If, however, 
this is left out of the calculation altogether, and 
attention is bestowed only on the necessary cur- 
rent expenses — the care of the grounds and build- 
ings, the upkeep of the laboratories and libraries, 
the salaries of the officers, etc. — the moneys re- 
ceived from the pupils fall far short of the re- 
quired outlay. During the last academic year the 
income from the student-body was less than 30 
per cent, of the running expenses of the Col- 
lege. If the number of students was doubled, as 
some apparently desire, nearly twice the present 
expenditure would be required to maintain the 
existing standard of efficiency. This would call 
for the addition of two million dollars to the en- 
dowment fund; and when all was done, while 
more young men would have the advantage of the 
training that is now given, its quality would re- 
main the same. The situation strongly suggests 
the condition of Alice (so delightfully made 
known to us by Lewis Carroll) who, on one oc- 
casion, was obliged to run as fast as she could in 
order to keep in the same place. 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



The extension of the privileges of the higher 
education to a much larger number than now 
enjoy it is certainly a commendable work; but, in 
my judgment, it is not the best possible for Bow- 
doin. Many institutions are performing the same 
task, with differing degrees of success ; and al- 
most all of them are striving to gather in more 
students. There is a general clamor for great 
classes, as if the mere size of the student-body 
constituted the chief glory of the college. The 
ambition of ours should be to give the highest 
possible education to a limited number of selected 
students, who would be distinct centers of cul- 
ture, learning, and refinement in whatever places 
they occupied in the world. 

The recent munificent bequest of Edwin Brad- 
bury Smith, of the Class of 1856, gives Bowdoin 
the opportunity to inaugurate a new and progres- 
sive policy. Instead of using the additional in- 
come, which this gift brings, to support a greater 
number of students, the College should apply it to 
increasing the facilities of instruction, augment- 
ing the corps of teachers, and paying better sal- 
aries. By pursuing this course with all future 
additions to the endowment various notable ad- 
vantages would be gained. 

Hitherto the College has suffered by having 
teachers, whom it had trained to efficiency, lured 
away to institutions which offered more pay, and 
greater opportunities for study and research. 
But, with the increased endowment, this unfor- 
tunate condition would cease, for Bowdoin could 
offer, at least, as good salaries as any other col- 
lege, and provide all desired facilities; and, in- 
stead of averaging only one teacher to every 
twelve students, it could increase its force to such 
an extent as to allow one to every four. In this 
way the ideal would be attained ; for, with the re- 
duction of the disparity of numbers between the 
faculty and the students, the instruction would 
■become, as far as is desirable, individual, and 
•every student would be brought into personal re- 
lations of some intimacy with each of his teach- 
ers, and thereby experience the inestimable bene- 
fit of receiving the impress of a mature and en- 
thusiastic mind upon his own at the period of the 
latter's greatest plasticity. 

The limitation of the size of the classes to sev- 
enty-five each would have as a corollary a much 
more rigid selection from the candidates for ad- 
mission. The objectionable practice of admitting 
on certificate would be abolished ; and, if the ap- 
plicants for the freshman class were as numerous 
as they have been of late years, fifty could be re- 
jected, and still leave all that could be taken un- 
der the new rule. Only the thoroughly well 
-equipped would be received: and, if any student 



at any period of his course showed that he was 
incapable of appreciating his rare advantages, or 
persistently displayed indifference to them, he 
would be dropped, and his place given to some 
one in every respect worthy of such privileges. 

With a large faculty of thoroughly trained, 
well paid, and not overworked professors, and a 
student body so small that each of its members 
would receive a great deal of individual instruc- 
tion, there would be a combination so remarkable 
that the remotest regions, in which the higher 
education is regarded, would resound with the 
wonder of it. Parents, who wanted their sons to 
have the best training, would feel constrained to 
look into the claims of this little college in a re- 
mote state; young men with sufficient seriousness 
of purpose to wish to make the best use of their 
time and effort would feel drawn toward an in- 
stitution that cared nothing for quantity, and 
everything for quality in its students. Before 
long the entrance-standard could be raised to 
such a height that mere admission would be a 
kind of distinction, and graduation such a pass- 
port as no baccalaureate degree ever yet has 
been. 

The influence of the novel policy upon men 
with money, which they wished or were willing 
to bestow upon education, would be to attract 
their contributions to an unexampled extent; for 
their interest would be stimulated by the cer- 
tainty that their benefactions would be em- 
ployed not for the encouragement of mediocrity 
and commonplaceness, but for the cultivating of 
the best talent. 

The scheme, in brief, means making the stu- 
dent body so small by the process of selection 
that it will consist only of the best material ; and 
making the teaching force so large and having it 
so well paid that places on the faculty will be the 
ambition of the most competent and experienced 
men in their respective departments. For its full 
development some years will be necessary, of 
course, but the resources of the College justify its 
immediate adoption, and nothing in the future 
seems more sure than its ultimate success. 

If Bowdoin grasps this' manifest opportunity, 
she will achieve a splendid uniqueness among ed- 
ucational institutions. She will be very great, if 
she but dares to be small.

'06; for two years, William A. MacCormick '12; 
for one year, Rev. Herbert E. Dunnack '97. 

The report of the Christian Association for the 
year 1913-1914 was submitted at the time of the 
election. The report shows that the organization 
has had another successful year of activity. The 
membership has included nearly 75 per cent, of 
the student body. 

The budget of the Association amounted to 
over $550. Receipts include $200 from the Col- 
lege, $150 already from the student blanket tax 
and $60 from alumni. The expenditures include : 
Handbook and printing, $200; conferences, $100; 
speakers' railroad expenses, $70; receptions, $75. 

Beginning next Sunday a special Bible class 
on Christian Belief will be conducted by Rev. C. 
W. Goodrich, pastor of the Church on the Hill. 
The class will meet in the rear pews of the 
church at 12, and will only last for half an hour. 
All students are welcome. Mr. Goodrich has had 
experience in conducting College Bible classes 
and has taught at various summer students' con- 
ferences. The first three topics are : Was 
Christ Divine; How Does the Bible Differ from 
Other Books ; The Value of Prayer. 

Next Sunday, Easter, will be observed as Bow- 
doin's Go-to-Church Sunday. Following the 
plan used in many cities and some colleges, spe- 
cial personal invitations to attend church will be 
extended. Easter music will be heard at all the 
churches, and in each case the respective minis- 
ter will preach. All the morning services com- 
mence at 10.45. At the First Parisn students 
who prefer to sit down stairs can secure seats 
from the ushers.

'75. — Col. George F. McQuillan died at his 
home in Portland on March 20, after a long ill- 
ness. He was born in Naples, Maine, April 18, 
1840 and was a descendant of the McQuillans 
wl.o entered Ireland with the earliest English ad- 
venturers. As late as the reign of Queen Eliza- 
beth they were the ancient lords of the northern 
coast and the surrounding district from Dunsev- 
erick Castle in County Antrim to Dunluce Castle. 
Their downfall dates from the marriage of the 
daughter of McQuillan, Lord of Dunluce, with 
MacDonnell, a chieftain from the opposite Scot- 
tish Highlands. MacDonnell subsequently took 
possession of the Antrim territory and got James 
I to confirm him as owner, since which the Mc- 
Quillans, deprived of their possessions, became 
scattered through the northern part of the coun- 
try and thence to other parts of the world. 



Col. McQuillan passed his boyhood days in the 
town of Raymond, Maine, and fitted for college 
at North Bridgton Academy. He graduated from 
Bowdoin in the class of 1875 where he became a 
member of Alpha Delta Phi. His college course 
was marked by good fellowship and everybody 
liked ''Mac" as he was familiarly called ; for one 
year he was a member of the crew. After grad- 
uating from college he taught in Cumberland 
County for two years and then took up the study 
of law with the late Hon. Bion Bradbury of the 
class of 1830, of Portland, being admitted to the 
bar Oct. 14, 1879, and practiced one year in 
Casco, Maine, where he served as town clerk and 
supervisor of schools. Since 1880 he has prac- 
ticed his profession in Portland. Besides being a 
member of the State Courts he was also a mem- 
ber of the U. S. Courts and was admitted to the 
Supreme Court of the U. S. at Washington, D. 
C, in 1892. From 1892 to 1894 he was associated 
with the late Col. Albert W. Bradbury of the 
class of i860. 

In 1891 he was united in marriage with Miss 
Mary F. Robie, daughter of the late ex-Governor 
Frederick Robie of the class of 1841, and his 
wife, Mary Olivia Robie. Colonel and Mrs. Mc- 
Quillan have one child, Harriet R., who was born 
in 1894. 

Col. McQuillan was a Democrat in politics and 
several times was the candidate of that party for 
offices on the county ticket. He was Judge Advo- 
cate General from 1881 to 1883 on the staff of the 
late ex-Governor Plaisted. He was a man of 
scholarly attainments, whose judgment in educa- 
tional matters was recognized even before he en- 
tered upon his legal career. As a lawyer he was 
well known as conscientious and reliable.

BOWDOIN VS. HARVARD TODAY 

This afternoon Bowdoin will meet Harvard on 
Soldier's Field for the first scheduled game of 
the season. Coach Clement's men have been 
working out on the field since last Thursday, and 
are already showing remarkably good form — 
thanks to the advantages of the winter training. 
Bowdoin's line-up will be: Stetson, If; McElwee, 
3b; Weatherill, 2b; Tuttle, rf; Eaton, lb; Good- 
skey, cf; Chapman, ss; LaCasce, c; Knight, p; 
Rawson, p. Knight will start the game for Bow- 
doin. 

No line-up has been received from Harvard, 
but the following line-up which they used against 
Colgate may be taken as a probable one : Nash, 
cf ; Wingate, ss ; Clark, 2b ; Ayres, lb ; Gannett, 
If; Hardwick, rf ; Milhalland, 3b; Frip'p, 3b; Wa- 
terman, c; Frye, p. 



TRACK OUTLOOK 



During the last week the fifty men in Trainer 
Magee's track squad have been put through a se- 
vere course of conditioning to prepare them for 
the actual work to come. The work so far has 
consisted of a jog of two or three miles each 
afternoon, followed by an hour of fast soccer and 
light form work in the various events. The 
whole squad has been subdivided into smaller 
groups to allow for special training. 

The men out are: sprinters, Smith '15, Nick- 
erson '16, Bond '17, Balfe '17, Roberts '15, Stone 
'15, McWilliams, '15, Fox '14, Livingston '15, 
Fillmore '17, Pierce '17, Webber '16, Ireland '16, 
Fuller '16, Eastman '15, and Burr '16; middle dis- 
tance, Crosby '17, Humphrey '17, MacCormick 
'15, Wight '17, Niven '16, Porritt '15, Parmenter 
'17, Bartlett '17 and A. B. Stetson '15; distance, 
Wright '14, Creeden '17, Cormack '17, Head '16, 
Bacon '15, Irving '16, Noyes '17, Jones '17; broad 
jump, Sampson '17, Nickerson ' 16, Balfe '17, 
Stone '15, Morrison '15, Fillmore '17, Pierce '17; 
high jump, White '17, Keene '17, L. Brown '14; 
pole vault, Fenning '17, McKenney '15, Sampson 
'17, Chase '14, Merrill '14; weights, Leadbetter 
'16, Moulton '16, Colbath '17, Austin '15; hurdles, 
Smith '15, Richardson '15, Morrison '15, L. Don- 
ahue '14, Fox '14, Young '17, Webber '16, Fuller 
'16, Eastman '15. 



Of these men, Smith, McWilliams, Fox, 
Wright, Bacon, Irving, L. Brown, McKenney, 
Merrill, 'Leadbetter, Moulton, Austin and L. 
Donahue are veterans, in good condition, and 
showing improvement. Among the second string 
men is an abundance of good material which 
Trainer Magee's system is bound to develop into 
point winners. 

The first opportunity to get a real line on the 
track prospects will be at the interclass meet on 
Whittier Field next Saturday. 

The Tech Meet April 25 is bound to prove a se- 
vere test of Bowdoin's track ability. Tech this 
year has the largest squad out in the history of 
the college. Their team of stars has been in con- 
stant training since Christmas with a break of 
only two days ; whereas our squad went off train- 
ing for two weeks after the interclass meet. A 
meet with a team whose slogan is "Win the New 
England Intercollegiate" will certainly show what 
Bowdoin has in track. 



TENNIS MEN BEGIN WORK 

Tennis work is beginning this week on one of 
the courts outdoors and two courts in the Ath- 
letic Building. A large number of men have 
answered the call for candidates and prospects 
are excellent for a good team. Three men were 
lost by graduation, Larrabee '16 being the only 
member of last year's team left in College. 
Among the men who have reported are Larra- 
bee '16, Card '15, Woodman '16, Flynt '17, Gree- 
ley '16, Ladd '17, Ogle '17, Rickard '17, Nason 
'14, Hall '16, D. White '16, Rogers '15, Nickerson 
'16, Head '16, Bird '16 and Young '17. The 
schedule, as yet tentative, includes a match with 
the Portland Country Club May 4, a match with 
Tufts at Tufts May 14, the New England Tour- 
nament at Longwood May 18, and the State 
Tournament at Waterville May 25-27. Candi- 
dates should hand their names to MacCormick 
'15 or Woodman '16.

WASHINGTON ALUMNI 

The Bowdoin College Alumni Association of 
Washington held its 32d annual banquet Thurs- 
day evening, April 2, with an attendance of 
about 40. 

Senator Charles F. Johnson '79, president of 
the association, presided and made an admirable 
toastmaster for the informal speeches which fol- 
lowed the banquet. The after-dinner talks were 
mostly reminiscent and no mention was made of 
pending political questions, either national or 
local. Representative John A. Peters '85 was 
one of the principal speakers. 

During the evening feeling allusion was made 
to the recent death of General Chamberlain. 

Among the members present were Senator 
Charles F. Johnson, De Alva S. Alexander '70, 
Admiral Robert E. Peary 'jj, Representative 
John A. Peters, Representative Frederick C. 
Stevens '81 of Minnesota, and Professor George 
T. Files '89 of Bowdoin, who was the college 
representative. 

The following association officers were elected : 
President, Charles F. Johnson ; vice-presidents, 
F. C. Stevens '81, D. J. McGillicuddy '81, secre- 
tary, Dr. Woodbury Pulsifer '75; corresponding 
secretary, Charles H. Hastings '91 ; chaplain, Rev. 
Francis Sewall; treasurer, General Ellis Spear 
'58; executive committee, General Ellis Spear, 
chairman, Howard T. Prince '62, Woodbury Pul- 
sifer, Charles H. Hastings, Richard B. Dole 
'02, Robert A. Cony '07. 



TRIANGULAR DEBATING LEAGUE 

Tuesday, April 28, is the date of the postponed 
debates with Hamilton and Wesleyan. At Clin- 
ton, Gage '14, Bacon '15 and Parsons '16, with 
McKenney '15 as alternate, debate with Jones 
'16, Keddy '15 and Walker '14, with Pohl '14 al- 
ternate, of Hamilton. In this debate Bowdoin 
supports the negative of the question, "Resolved, 
That a federal commission should be established 
for the regulation of trusts." At Brunswick, 
Leigh '14, Talbot '15 and Tackaberry '15, with 
Edwards '16 alternate, uphold the affirmative side 
of the question against Wesleyan. The Hamilton 
and Wesleyan managements have been put to a 
great deal of trouble in postponing the debates 
for Bowdoin, and the Bowdoin management feels 
deeply indebted to them for their trouble. 



NORTHFIELD STUDENT CONFERENCE 

Five hundred New England college men are 
expected to attend the Northfield Student Con- 
ference at East Northfield, Mass., June 19 to 28. 
The speakers will be : Dr. John R. Mott, whose

Speer, a college preacher here last year, and a 
speaker at last year's State Y.M.C.A. Confer- 
ence; C. D. Hurrey, who is in charge of the stu- 
dent Y.M.C.A. of the country; and T. Richard 
Glover of England. The total expenses will 
range from $10.00 to $20.00. The Y.M.C.A. will 
pay the registration fee of $5.00. 

BOWDOIN INTERSCHOLASTIC BASEBALL

'14, Mountfort '14, L. Stetson '15, Beal '16, Barry 
'16 and Twaddle, Medic '15. 



CAROLINE TILLSON ROBINSON 

Miss Caroline Tillson Robinson, for many 
years assistant curator of the art collections, died 
Friday morning, March 27, after a long illness. 
For many years she was a resident of Brunswick, 
but she was born in Thomaston, in 1866. While 
in Brunswick she lived with her sister, Mrs. 
Henry Johnson. 

President Hyde said of her in his eulogy : 
"Her crowning grace was an unselfish love which 
showed itself as an outgoing courtesy to visitors 
in the art building; a readiness to subordinate 
herself to others' interests and aims in the home ; 
and a constancy of affection to those who were so 
fortunate as to be her friends." 

The funeral was held on Sunday afternoon, 
March 29. Rev. Chauncey W. Goodrich, pastor 
of the First Parish Church, and President Hyde 
of the College officiated. Miss Robinson was 
buried Monday in Thomaston. The bearers were 
Professor F. E. Woodruff, Dr. George T. Little, 
Professor Wilmot B. Mitchell and Professor 
Roscoe T. Ham. 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



AN ALUMNUS OF HALF A CENTURY AGO 

The following account taken from the 
Cedar County (Nebraska) News will give evi- 
dence to the fact that real manhood has been 
graduated at Bowdoin: — 

That he had been elected by the people of his 
district to administer justice and not that he had 
heen selected by the attorneys to umpire contests 
in mendacity appears to have been the unique 
idea of one of the early circuit judges of Nebras- 
ka. He was a man whose memory should be kept 
green. To commemorate his virtues and to en- 
courage others to emulation there should be erect- 
ed in the capital of the state a monument that will 
outshine every other. 

Many stories have been told of William Gaslin, 
pioneer district judge of the western district of 
Nebraska, and from Judge W. F. Bryant of this 
county, who was his personal acquaintance, have 
come most of the bunch of stories which follow. 

Born in the State of Maine, as a boy Gaslin 
went to sea. He was a sailor, later a school 
teacher, attended college at Bowdoin, and such 
was his loyalty to his alma mater that he never 
would permit anyone in his presence to speak 
lightly of Hawthorne, Longfellow, Franklin 
Pierce or any other of the celebrated characters 
who received their education in that institution. 
Another marked characteristic was, his contempt 
amounting almost to detestation, of anyone who 
appeared ashamed of his rustic relatives, or of 
anyone poorly dressed. Gaslin himself was a 
man of considerable wealth, but, "sold at auc- 
tion," says Judge Bryant, "all he had on would 
not have brought $2.50. I have seen him in court 
with shoes on but no socks." 

He was elected judge of the western district 
after the adoption of the constitution of 1875, 
went out there where lawlessness was the rule, 
and almost every grave was filled by a man who 
had died with his boots on, and made the com- 
munity law abiding, peaceable and safe. Such 
was his knowledge of the law that it was almost 
impossible for a lawyer to find anything upon 
which to base even a plausible ground for appeal. 

His first experience was at Sidney, then prac- 
tically at the mercy of outlaws. A murderer,' 
plainly guilty, was acquitted by the first jury. 

"What," exclaimed the judge, "twelve men en- 
tered into a conspiracy to disregard their oath?" 
He immediately discharged the entire jury. Then 
he went out in the town and talked with citizens 
in business places and on the streets and quietly 
jotted down the names of men whom he found to 
be in favor of law and order, the next morning 
handed his list to the sheriff and ordered him to 



bring in an entire new panel of 24 jurymen and 
16 grand jurymen. To them he delivered a most 
inflammatory charge and told them if they did not 
want their community to remain a den of gam- 
blers, thieves and murderers to do their duty. 
They did it and brought in a tremendous list of 
indictments not ten per cent, of whom failed of 
conviction. He held the court in session till the 
last one was disposed of. Then he did not ad- 
journ court, but announced a recess, thus retain- 
ing the same jury for the next term. He kept the 
same jury at work for two years, and cleaned up 
the county in good shape, inculcating such a re- 
spect for law and justice as had never before ex- 
isted. When one of the cases was called for trial 
fifty cowboys ostentatiously crowded into the 
court room armed with heavy revolvers. 

"Arrest every man in this room with weapons 
on his person, Mr. Sheriff," said the judge. "Take 
those revolvers away from them, and don't you 
give them back, either." 

Then he lined them up before him, gave them 
a scoring that they would remember, and fined 
them $25 each for contempt of court. One fel- 
low started to write a check. "Checks don't go. 
Produce the money, sir, or go to jail." At the 
end of the term the sheriff had a carload of pris- 
oners for the penitentiary. Gaslin had forced 
every case to trial. 

After he had been on the bench for sixteen 
years he was defeated by a combination of all 
elements who opposed him, and by a shrewd di- 
vision of his friends. The attorneys of the dis- 
trict were prime movers in the plan which defeat- 
ed him. But as he was holding his last term of 
court they held a meeting, drew up a set of flat- 
tering resolutions, and named one of their num- 
ber to present them. The judge, who knew them 
too well to be deceived, interrupted the flowery 
address. "Formality ! formality !" he exclaimed. 
"Hypocrisy, hypocrisy ! You don't mean a word 
of it. Adjourn court, Mr. Sheriff." Then he 
turned in and told them just what he thought of 
them, and they did not stay to hear him out but 
fled the court room. 



An interesting feature of the annual Relay 
Races of the University of Pennsylvania will be 
the introduction of international competition. 
Oxford, Cambridge, and Harrow Universities, of 
England, will be represented. Norman Taber, 
Brown '13, is a member of the Oxford four-mile 
relay team, which is said to be the fastest in the 
world. Jackson, the captain, and Taber have 
records under 4.20, and the other two men have 
run consistently under 4.25.

Interfraternity Baseball 

With the opening of the baseball season and 
the cutting of the 'Varsity squad to a limited 
number comes the question of what the rest of us 
are to do with that desire, as inevitable as spring 
itself, to stand in the batter's box and "hit it a 
mile." Almost every man has that desire, coupled 
in a greater or less degree with ability to make 
the requisite connection between willow and 
horsehide. 

In former years this desire to play baseball 
found expression in an interfraternity series. 
How high interest ran in this series is shown by 
the fact that on one occasion a game was played 
at six o'clock in the morning, since no other time 
could be found. Last year there was no such 



competition. Recently teams representing two 
of the dormitories played a game, but no steps 
have been taken toward a reestablishment of the 
interfraternity series. 

Last year the series was not played because it 
was feared that such games took men away from 
the second team, which played a regular schedule 
and was expected to hold daily practice. Only on 
the days before games did practice bring out 
enough men to make up a team. We do not at- 
tempt to explain this. It is apparent, however, 
that interfraternity baseball was not responsible 
for failure to practice on the part of the second 
team. It is probable that a series of this sort 
would be the best thing for the second team, since 
it would keep a large number of men in practice 
and make competition keener. There is too great 
a tendency to feel that a place on the second team 
in a Saturday game is to be won Friday after- 
noon because one is nominally in practice and 
other men are not. 

It is argued that such a series causes rivalry 
among the fraternities and tends to disturb the 
harmony now existing between them. Men of all 
fraternities have expressed the opinion that in- 
terfraternity spirit is heightened by such compe- 
tition and that the games are a valuable aid in 
destroying the feeling that we are nine separate 
units instead of one. We come too little in con- 
tact with the men of other fraternities, and to 
meet them on a ground of common interest and 
enthusiasm must strengthen or create bonds of 
good-fellowship. 

At an early meeting, the Student Council will 
take up the matter and will undoubtedly express 
itself as in favor of the series. If it takes this 
action, managers may be elected in the various 
houses, a meeting of the managers held, and a 
schedule quickly arranged. 



The Call for the Band 

On the baseball schedule this year there are 
more home games than ever before, and in ad- 
dition there are athletic contests at which the 
band will be expected to furnish music. Since 
Blanket Tax tickets removed the necessity of 
earning one's admission into games, the band has 
seen evil days. It has even been necessary to hire 
musicians to fill places formerly competed for 
eagerly. The need for more musicians and for 
more consistent practice is vital. The newly 
formed Orchestral Club has solved the problem 
of music at rallies, but music must be furnished 
at out-door contests as well. Here a band can 
render invaluable service, and service which can- 
not well be dispensed with. Scores of most of

the new Bowdoin song's have been made for band 
instruments, and the band may be a great factor 
in teaching these new songs to the student body. 
It is in its power to become a more valuable or- 
ganization than ever before, yet it bids fair to de- 
crease in efficiency because few of the many mu- 
sicians in college feel the need strongly enough 
to respond. Those in charge complain that calls 
to practice meet with no response. The band 
must necessarily be limited in size in comparison 
with those of other colleges, yet there is no rea- 
son why the excellence of its performance should 
be impaired by unwillingness to respond to re- 
peated calls for practice.

Professor Files gave an address on Improved 
Highways at the Good Roads Convention in Ban- 
gor, April 7. The address was illustrated with a 
large number of stereopticon views of roads in 
America and Europe. 

Professor Files represented the College at the 
recent meeting of the Washington Alumni. 

Dean Sills was chairman and Professor Wood- 
ruff a member of a committee which has been in- 
vestigating the status of Greek in Maine schools. 
The committee met in Brunswick recently and 
reported that colleges must adjust their courses 
in Greek to meet new conditions and that Greek 
must be started in college instead of in prepara- 
tory schools.

The faculty at Williams has decided to abolish 
the cane rush in the future, because of injuries 
to students in the last one. 

G. H. Gaston, Jr., secretary of the War De- 
partment summer encampments, announces that 
four camps will be established for college stu- 
dents this summer. 

Instruction will be furnished by army officers 
in all branches of infantry work and tactics. The 
cost for five weeks totals $22.50. Camps will be 
held in Burlington, Vt. ; Monterey, Cal., and one 
each in Virginia and Michigan. The object of 
these camps is to train educated young men to 
command troops in case of emergency. 

A new idea comes from Professor Fitz, head of 
the music department of the State Teachers' Col- 
lege at Greeley, Colo. His warning is : "Girls, 
test your fiance's voice before marrying. Wed a 
man with a voice like yours and never be un- 
happy." 

Figures compiled by the University of Ver- 
mont Cynic show that 82.7 per cent, of the stu- 
dents of the University are in some degree self- 
supporting; 10.2 per cent, are entirely self-sup- 
porting, and 72.5 are partially self-supporting. 
The degree of self-support of those that earn 
only a part of their expenses is shown by the fol- 
lowing figures : 14.2 per cent, earn both room 



and board; 21.8 per cent, earn enough for their 
room and 3.8 per cent, earn their board alone, the 
remaining 32.7 per cent, earning only minor ex- 
penses. 

At the University of Vermont is an Outing 
Club, the purpose of which is to gather together 
the lovers of nature. Its members spend Satur- 
days and holidays in snow-shoe trips during the 
winter, and in long walks during the summer. 

Yale and California have both abolished gym- 
nasium drill. At Yale where the Freshmen have 
had compulsory gymnasium floor work for over 
half a century, it has been invariably unpopular 
with the Freshmen. Now they will be assigned 
to different departments of athletics, after a study 
of their individual needs. The physical instruc- 
tors, after doing all in their power to make gym- 
nasium work interesting, have decided that the 
men can be interested in their own physical de- 
velopment only through athletic rivalry. At Cal- 
ifornia the old Greek pentathlon is substituted for 
gymnasium drills. The pentathlon is a five-fea- 
tured physical contest which embraces running, 
jumping, wrestling and javelin and discus throw- 
ing.

In regard to the recent discussion regarding 
the reduction of Varsity crew races from four to

Last year Cornell University received the larg- 
est additional endowment of any college in the 
country. The gifts total $4,638,923. 

The problem of the needy college man is being 
partially solved at the University of Texas in a 
rather novel way. The profits of a moving pic- 
ture show, owned and operated by the student 
body, are used to help worthy men in meeting col- 
lege expenses. 

Some Harvard men are employing a novel 
method of lowering the cost of living, while in 
college. They have started the custom of wear- 
ing black silk shirts and neckties to cut the laun- 
dry bills. 

More college songs, and better college singing, 
seems to be the slogan of colleges in all sections 
of the country. Smith College is planning a song 
contest which is to be held between the four 
classes at commencement time next June. Col- 
umbia University, in connection with the fiftieth 
anniversary of the founding of the School of 
Mines, is holding a competition for the best com- 
memorative poem and song. In doing this both 
institutions are acting on the belief that good

songs and good singing make for a more loyal 
student body. 

Recent statistics given out by the Harvard 
Union show that the Union is beyond a doubt ful- 
filling its purpose to the University. During an 
aveirge week, 926 men, one-half the total mem- 
bership, used the Union every day. Besides fur- 
nishing meals to sixty-five regular boarders, the 
Union served 985 meals to transients. 

The question of side-line coaching in baseball 
is receiving serious consideration from many of 
the big universities and colleges of the east. 
Yale, Harvard and Princeton are all in favor of 
keeping the coach off the field. Pennsylvania, it 
is expected, will soon follow their lead. This is 
a move that promises better and cleaner games ; it 
will take away the idea that victory is everyth'ing ; 
it will allow individual thinking, and remove the 
business-like attitude for the spirit of the ama- 
teur. 

A single paid graduate manager for all athletic 
i<_aiiis. in place of the seventeen men from each 
class now occupying managerships or assistant 
managerships, has been advocated at Yale. 

Nearly 2500 students in one hundred colleges 
and universities in the United States are making 
a systematic study of the liquor problem, accord- 
ing to the recent report of the Intercollegiate Pro- 
hibition Association. In thirty-four of the in- 
stitutions regular college credit is given for these 
courses. 

The Freshmen of Utah University who painted 
their numerals on a big boulder on the University 
campus were recently tried before the Student 
Council. To atone for their misdemeanor the 
Freshmen were compelled to scrub off every 
vestige of the numerals, apply the University col- 
ors, and apologize publicly to the student body. 

Students at the University of Chicago have 
borrowed $59,000 from the Students' Fund As- 
sociation since 1892, according to the first report 
of the association's work, given out last week. 
Of the total loans the sum of $40,000 has been re- 
paid, the outstanding balance being divided be- 
tween three hundred borrowers with an average 
indebtedness of $70 each. 

A movement to eradicate student drinking has 
been started at Princeton University. The Senior 
class has decided to bar beer from the class din- 
ner; the students living at the Graduate College 
have passed a resolution against the serving of 
liquor at public functions in their department of 
the University; and the faculty is making every 
effort to discourage student drinking. Saloon 
proprietors have been warned that the University 
will hold to strict account any who sell to under- 
graduates who are minors.

Resolutions 

Hall of Theta of Delta Kappa Epsilon. 
April 10, 1914. 
It is with very deep regret that the Theta 
Chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon learns of the 
death of one of its old and faithful alumni, Ed- 
ward Payson Payson, in Boston. Brother Payson 
graduated with the class of 1869 from Bowdoin 
and received the degree of Bachelor of Laws 
from the University of Chicago in 1871. For 
twelve years his practice was in Portland, and 
after removing to Boston he kept his law prac- 
tice up to the time of his last illness. Brother 
Payson was prominent among the members of 
his own profession and was also a popular mem- 
ber of several clubs. 

To his friends and relatives the Chapter wishes 
to extend its most sincere sympathy and to ex- 
press its own sorrow for the loss of a brother.

Joseph C. MacDonald,

For the Chapter. 



alumni Department 

1869. — Edward Payson Payson, LL.B., son of 
Edward Payson, of the class of 1832, and Pene- 
lope Ann (Martin) Payson was born July 16, 
1849, at Portland, Maine. Having graduated from 
Bowdoin in 1869, where he was a member of the 
Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity, he attended Har- 
vard Law School, receiving his law degree in 
1871. At one time he taught in Portland High 
School and practiced law in that city from 1872 
to 1884, whence he removed to Boston where he 
has practiced since. His specialty was rather 
patent law though his practice was general. He 



i6 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



was a scholarly man whose learning in legal mat- 
ters, mental alertness and sound judgment made 
him an honor to the profession he himself loved 
and honored. He was a member of the Univer- 
sity Club, Athletic Association, Exchange Club, 
and Country Club of Boston as well as of the 
University Club of New York. 

Quiet and undemonstrative in manner and 
bearing it was left to those privileged to win his 
interest and friendship to discover how thorough 
and keen he was in literary and scientific fields of 
research such as genealogy and history, French 
and English literature. In 1898 he published a 
very able book entitled Suggestions Towards an 
Applied Science of Sociology. 

He was a loyal member of the class of sixty- 
nine and the following are lines written by him : 

''Turn our faces back to see — 

As our full procession marches 

E'en while music throbs and colors shine — 

There ! across the bridge of Death 

Lifted high on springing arches 

Pass the vanguard five of Sixty-nine." 

Mr. Payson travelled a good deal abroad, being 
especially fond of studying the English and 
French cathedrals at first hand amid their own 
surroundings rather than through books and il- 
lustrations only. Life in the open appealed to 
him especially whether in the country or at the 
seashore. 

His death in Boston on March 28 is the source 
of great loss to the College as well as to a large 
circle of relatives in Portland and to his brother, 
William M. Payson, of the class of 1874, with 
whom he was associated for many years in the 
practice of his profession. 

1877. — On April 6, the fifth anniversary of the 
discovery of the North Pole, Rear Admiral Rob- 
ert E. Peary, U.S.N., retired, was given a dinner 
and presented with a gold medal by the Explorers' 
Club of New York. 

1892. — "Politician, Party, and People," a dis- 
cussion of practical politics, by Professor Henry 
Crosby Emery has been published recently by the 
Yale University Press. 

'01. — Mrs. Bertha G. Kimball of Alfred has an- 
nounced the engagement of her daughter, Mar- 
garet Lucetta, to George R. Gardner, principal of 
the Brunswick High School. 

XQ02. — John Appleton, M.F., son of Hon. Fred- 
erick Hunt Appleton, of the class of 1864 and 
grandson of the late Chief Justice John Appleton 
of the class of 1822, was born August 23, 1879, at 
Bangor, Maine. He fitted for college at Bangor 
High School and Hotchkiss School at Lakeville, 
Conn. After his graduation from Bowdoin he 
attended Yale Forestry School, receiving his for- 



estry degree in 1904. He served two years in the 
employ of the government as forester and then 
formed a partnership with State Forest Commis- 
sioner Blaine S. Viles, of the class of 1903. Later 
the firm was dissolved and he became associated 
with James W. Sewall of the class of 1906, with 
offices in Bangor, Maine and New York City. 
Mr. Appleton had charge of the work of preserv- 
ing the trees on the Bowdoin Campus and on the 
Yale Campus. 

He was a member of the Delta Kappa Epsilon 
fraternity, Knights Templars, Yale Graduates' 
Club of New Haven, and the Tarrantine Club of 
Bangor, and had served as president of the Ban- 
gor Humane Society. Ill health compelled him to 
relinquish active work about a year ago. He took 
a trip to Europe without benefit and died in 
Washington on April 2. He is survived by his 
father and stepmother, his wife, who was Miss 
Winnifred Hodge of Kalamazoo, Mich., and one 
daughter. 

1902. — Dr. Eugene R. Kelley has recently be- 
come secretary of the State Board of Health of 
Washington. 

'03. — Jesse M. Blanchard, a graduate of Bow- 
doin in the class of 1903, and a prominent athlete, 
died in Williamsburg, Va., April 3. While a stu- 
dent at Bowdoin, Mr. Blanchard was a member 
of the varsity baseball team, active in track ath- 
letics and for a time was assistant instructor in 
the college gymnasium. 

After graduation, Mr. Blanchard was an in- 
structor in the Evanston Academy, 111., and from 
1906 until 1908 he was assistant director of phy- 
sical training at the Washington University at 
St. Louis. In 1908 and 1909 he located at Whit- 
man College, Walla Walla, Washington. Later 
he has been in business in Baltimore. He was 
born in Winterport, April 26, 1881. He is sur- 
vived by his wife. 

1910. — The report of Class Secretary and 
Treasurer Harold E. Rowell has been issued re- 
cently. 

1912. — The engagement of Miss Miriam Fuller, 
Radcliffe 1912, of Auburndale, Mass., to Kenneth 
Churchill of Newtonville, Mass., has been an- 
nounced recently, as has also that of Miss Nell 
Davis of Guilford, Maine to Robert Craig Hous- 
ton of the same town. 

Carl O. Warren, Walter G. Greenleaf, Benja- 
min H. Riggs, of the class of 1912, Fred D. Wish 
and Albert D. Tilton, of the class of 1913, gave

W. Torrey '12, who has left for Colon, Panama, 
in the employ of the International Banking Cor- 
poration.

BOWDOIN VS. TRINITY SATURDAY 

Bowdoin plays Trinity at Hartford next Satur- 
day. The Bowdoin line-up has not yet been given 
out, but no radical changes are expected. Little 
is known about Trinity's work so far this season. 
Bowdoin defeated Trinity io to 8 last year. 



HARVARD 5, BOWDOIN 1 

Bowdoin went down to defeat in her first 
scheduled game before Captain Wingate's team 
on Soldiers' Field last Tuesday afternoon. The 
uneven score can be laid to several rather un- 
timely errors and a few "bonehead" plays on the 
part of Bowdoin. The game lacked, however, the 
raggedness to be expected on a cold day so early 
in the season. Both teams pulled off some fast 
infielding and good base running. 

McElwee began the season with his usual good 
form, taking 1 1 chances and scoring eight as- 
sists and three put-outs without an error. Knight 
pitched good ball for the full nine innings. His 
occasional wildness can be laid to the high wind 
that afternoon. 

Bowdoin scored her one run in the sixth in- 
ning. Weatherill was hit by a pitched ball; Mc- 
Elwee sacrificed, and Weatherill went to second ; 
a passed ball put him on third, and he scored on 
Eaton's two-base hit between short stop and left 
field. 

The features of the game were Nash's long 
throw from center field, catching LaCasce at 
the plate on an attempt to score from second on 
Stetson's single, and the work of McElwee at 
third.

Bowdoin lost the first home game of the season 
in an exhibition game with Bates on Whittier 
Field Saturday afternoon by the score of 4-0. 
The game was an exceptionally good one for 
early season. Both teams fielded fast and clean, 
with a few exceptions on the part of Bowdoin. 
Lindquist and Stinson pitched puzzling ball, and 
Bowdoin found them for only one hit in the 
whole game, a two-bagger by Goodskey in the 
eighth inning. The Freshman's hit, together with 
his fast work in center field, were features of the 
game. 

Captain LaCasce showed fine form behind the 
bat, catching three men at second by hard and 
sure throws, and one man in an attempt to steal 
third. 

Lindquist and Coady featured for Bates. 

The game by innings : 

First Inning — McDonald was retired on an 
easy fly to Stetson. Coady reached first through 
an error by Chapman. On an attempt to steal 
second Coady was thrown out, LaCasce to 
Weatherill. Fuller reached first on a wild throw 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



by McElwee, but was caught in an attempt to 
steal second by a quick throw from LaCasce to 
Weatherill. 

Stetson struck out. Weatherill and McElwee 
were both retired on long flies to center field. 

Second Inning — Talbot laid down a hit to 
Chapman and was thrown out at first. Cobb died

fly to McElwee. 

Tuttle was retired on a foul caught by Talbot. 
Eaton hit to Lindquist and was thrown out at 
first. Goodskey hit to McDonald. 

Drake reached first on an error by Tuttle. 
Stinson received a base on balls. Lindquist 
struck out. McDonald was retired on a fly to 
Goodskey, and Coady lifted one into Tuttle's 
hands. 

Chapman and LaCasce were both thrown out 
on hits to third base. Rawson failed to beat out 
a hit to second baseman. 

Fourth Inning — Fuller lined out a hit that 
looked good for extra bases, but Goodskey pulled 
it down after a long run. Talbot drew a pass. 
Cobb got a clean hit over third base. Butler laid 
down a hit to McElwee and was thrown out at 
first. Drake struck out. 

Stetson, Weatherill and McElwee all hit to sec- 
ond base and were thrown out at first. 

Fifth Inning — Stinson reached first on a hit be- 
tween second and short. Weatherill dropped 
Lindquist's short fly and caught Stinson at sec- 
ond. McDonald hit over short stop, Lindquist 
taking second. Coady hit to deep center, scoring 
Lindquist and McDonald. Fuller received a base 
on balls. Talbot hit to Chapman who threw 
Coady out at third. Fuller and Talbot worked a 
double steal. Cobb was retired on an easy 
grounder to McElwee. 

Tuttle lifted a pop fly to short stop. Eaton hit 
to Lindquist, and Goodskey to Cobb. 

Sixth Inning — Knight replaced Rawson. But-

DUAL MEET WITH TECH 

In the dual meet with Tech next Saturday, 
Bowdoin will compete with a team of veteran 
performers, touted to win the New England 
meet. It is almost too much to hope that Bow- 
doin's comparatively inexperienced team, sadly 
handicapped by weather conditions, can defeat 
Tech's men who have been in almost constant 
training since Christmas. A good showing 
against Tech's team will raise Bowdoin's track 
prospects for the Trinity and State meets, and we 
may be reasonably sure that that good showing 
will be made. The times and distances in the 
Tech interclass meet last Friday were not of rec- 
ord calibre, and Bowdoin should be able to collect 
a goodly number of points. 

Bowdoin will probably make her best showing 
in the weights with Leadbetter and Lewis as star 
performers. 

On account of weather conditions of the past 
week it is impossible to give any accurate esti- 
mate of what Bowdoin can do in each event. Up 
to a late hour before going to press, trials had 
not been held. 

Among Tech's men are O'Hara, Wilkins and 
Loomis in the dashes. O'Hara is Junior A.A.U. 
champion and former New England 100 yard 
champion. In the quarter, Captain Herbert Gue- 
thing is former N.E.AA.U. champion. Don- 
neley, C. T. Guething and Nye, the cross-country 
captain, are entered in the half and mile. Col- 
leary and Fox last year took first and second re- 
spectively in the broad jump in the New Eng- 
land meet. Sullivan is a capable performer in the 
high jump and Huff took a third in the hurdles at 
the New England meet last year.

Bowdoin's Track Athletics 

Ever since 1910, when the better part of a 
track team which all but won the New England 
Meet graduated, we have heard each spring the 
sorrowful talk of alumni who saw Bowdoin when 
she led in track and who now let pessimistic 
thoughts of better days take the place of clear, 
optimistic analysis of present conditions. These 
men, still in close touch with the College and its 
affairs in spirit, in fact are out of touch with 
Bowdoin athletics, except for the unsatisfactory 
knowledge afforded by sporting columns. 

We have not won the Maine meet for three 
years. Why? It is partly because athletes are 
being attracted, either legitimately or otherwise, 
to other institutions mo f e than formerly. It is 
in part due to the fact that in these three years 



entrance standards have been raised enough so 
that athletes who have devoted more time to track 
than studies in preparatory school find it increas- 
ingly hard to pass the requirements. Again it is 
because a "slump" was inevitable after the un- 
usual position we had attained in track athletics. 

We feel that the first two are largely contribut- 
ing causes but that the third is the true explana- 
tion of conditions now existing. With a well- 
balanced team of stars who were sure of their 
places on the team, competition among the other 
men of the College for places could not fail to 
fall off. There was also a natural tendency on 
the part of the coaches to devote a good deal of 
time to a man who could win an event in the New 
England meet, to the neglect of the novice. En- 
ergy was expended where it would bring the 
greatest returns, and there was little dealing in 
futurities. The coaches did not have time to 
seek out the Freshmen who would develop into 
point winners in three or four years and these 
men had little incentive to come out of their own 
accord. "Finds" in those days were literally 
found; they did not appear through the smooth 
working of a well-ordered system. The estab- 
lishment of any such system was prevented by in- 
adequate equipment and lack of facilities for . 
getting definite knowledge of the ability of each 
man. The coaches and those in charge made 
honest and untiring efforts against the drag of 
adverse conditions but were compelled to be con- 
tent with the splendid success of the present and 
let the problem of the future work itself out. 

Is this problem working itself out? No, it is 
being worked out, by a system which has as com- 
ponent parts efficient direction, magnificent equip- 
ment, and an unparalleled enthusiasm on the part 
of the student body. One has only to look over 
the work done this winter and spring to realize 
that we have entered on a new era in track ath- 
letics. 

Through the winter the facilities afforded by 
the new gymnasium have enabled the directors 
to get in close touch with every man and pre- 
scribe for him suitable work. The work has 
been harder than ever before, but the pleasure of 
working under such conditions has caused an in- 
terest in gymnasium work unknown in the "gym 
is a farce" days. Throughout the winter a large 
track squad has worked in the athletic building, 
going through a routine designed to give general 
development as well as specialized efficiency. 

Nor has this interest waned with the coming 
of warmer days. For some time the largest squad 
in the history of the College has reported daily 
to Coach Magee for out-door work and has un- 
dergone grilling practice with no dropping off in 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



interest. Through personal attention and a care- 
ful system of records, watch is being kept over 
every man and the best he is capable of is being 
brought out. At one time or another this year 
every man in College has come under the eyes of 
the coach and every man who has possibilities has 
been urged to report for practice. 

After careful consideration of present condi- 
tions, the most pessimistic observer cannot fail 
to find promise of ultimate success. We do not 
predict sudden success or immediate victories. 
Yet such faith have we in this system with its 
motto "Work, work, work," and in a student body 
which shows such disposition to live up to that 
motto, that we feel confident in predicting the re- 
gaining within a very few years of Bowdoin's 
"lost" prestige in track athletics. 



BOWDOIN MEETS N. E. LEAGUERS 

Bowdoin played the Portland team of the New 
England League in Portland yesterday, too late 
for the Orient to get the score. The men who 
made the trip were: Captain LaCasce, Knight, 
Rawson, Fraser, Eaton, Weatherill, McElwee, 
Chapman, Kelley, Stetson, Tuttle and Goodskey. 

In the morning Tuttle and McElwee played on 
an all-star collegiate team against the New Eng- 
land leaguers. 



SPRING RALLY 



According to a census taken just before mid- 
night last Sunday, there are just 99,762 surprises 
waiting to be uncovered at the annual spring 
rally in Memorial Hall next Friday night. The 
exact nature of these surprises is unknown to all 
except the committee in charge. Various dark 
horses in the way of entertainers and entertain- 
ments are said to be hidden carefully away. 
It is understood that the musical clubs, including 
the reader, will pull off something new. The new 
orchestra will turn musical somersaults. Speak- 
ers from faculty and alumni — whose names are 
not yet announced, not being known by even the 
committee — will be there. Refreshments will re- 
fresh. Souvenirs will get out of order. That 
famous one-act skit — famous for its absence — 
will make its debut — probably. And there are to 
be 99,762 surprises ; if you don't believe it, count 
'em. 



SECOND BASEBALL TEAM 

The recent snow storm proved a great handi- 
cap to out-door baseball practice, and as yet not 
much of a line has been obtained on the second 
team. Larrabee '16 has been chosen captain, and 
will be relied on to do most of the catching. Next 



Saturday, April 25, the team will play its first 
game against Bates second. The following men 
are all likely candidates for positions : Bradford 
'17, Cooley'15, Wood '16, Bodurtha' 1 5, Church- 
ill '16, Coombs '14, Peters '14, Greeley '16, Allen 
'15, Dyar '16, Bigelow '17, Nute '17, Carll '17 and 
S hum way '17. 



SECOND COLLEGE TEA 

The second College Tea was given last Friday 
afternoon in Hubbard Hall, and was, from every 
standpoint, a success. The committee which had 
charge of affairs was composed of: Mrs. Frank 
N. Whittier (chairman), Mrs. George T. Little, 
Mrs. Wilmot B. Mitchell, Mrs. Roscoe J. Ham 
and Mrs. George R. Elliott. 

The tables were in charge of Mrs. Paul Nixon, 
Mrs. William Hawley Davis, Mrs. James L. 
McConaughy and Mrs. Alfred O. Gross. 

Miss Ruth Nearing, Miss Isabell Palmer and 
Miss Mary Elliott helped Mrs. Nixon at the cof- 
fee table. Miss Frances Skolfield, Miss Marion 
Drew and Miss Helen Snow assisted Mrs. Davis 
in pouring tea. Punch was served by Mrs. Mc- 
Conaughy, assisted by Miss Isabelle Pollard, Miss- 
Anne Hall and Miss Helen Colby, and by Mrs. 
Gross, assisted by Miss Lorette Lapointe, Miss 
Helene Blackwell and Miss Dorothy Donnell. 

Miss Ruth Booker, Miss Helen Lewis, Miss 
Sue Winchell and Miss Isabell Forsaith assisted 
generally. 

The ushers were: White '16 from Alpha Delta 
Phi, Hargraves '16 from Psi Upsilon, MacDonald 
'15 from Delta Kappa Epsilon, Cole '14 from 
Theta Delta Chi, Edwards '16 from Zeta Psi, 
Knowlton '15 from Delta Upsilon, Leigh '14 from 
Kappa Sigma, Bird '16 from Beta Theta Pi, 
Rodick '15 from the Bowdoin Club, and Hay- 
wood, Medic '17, from Alpha Kappa Kappa. 



LEIGH WINS SCHOLARSHIP 

An honorary award of the Charles Carroll 
Everett graduate scholarship has been made to 
Robert D. Leigh '14. He plans to attend Colum- 
bia University next year, pursuing courses in his- 
tory and education. •

C&e ILiorarp Cable 

Mrs. Jane P. Anderson of Kenilworth, 111., in a 
paper in the March School Science and Mathe- 
matics asks the familiar question of what is to be 
gained by the traditional school or college exam- 
ination. The writer states that she believes the 
final examination fails because of the impossibil- 
ity of giving fair test-questions and of determin- 
ing the exact value to put upon the answer. Mrs. 
Anderson concludes that such examinations are 
useless "if the instruction is of the kind, as it 
should be, where the student's very thoughts are 
being examined every hour." In fact, she would 
like to see the final examination "die out, with 
other useless antiquities." 

A recent article by Harlan F. Flansen, Bowdoin 
'10, in the Telephone Review, New York, makes 
a strong plea for the college man in professional 
baseball, stating that college athletics should be 
considered as much a preparation for future 
work in the cases of those who have real ability, 
as are the courses in law and medicine.

Resolutions 



Hall of the Kappa Chapter of Psi Upsilon 
April 21, 1914. 
It is with deepest regret that the Kappa Chap- 
ter of Psi Upsilon learns of the death of Brother 



Samuel Freeman. Brother Freeman received the 
degree of M.D. from Bowdoin in 1854, after 
which he practiced medicine in Boston. A few 
years later he went to Chelsea, Mass., as a drug- 
gist, where he was a member of the city govern- 
ment. Brother Freeman was a true Bowdoin 
man and an active man in business. Therefore, 
be it 

Resolved, That we extend our sincere sym- 
pathy to his family in their grief. 

Earl Farnsworth Wilson, 
Albion Keith Eaton, 
Dwight Harold Sayward, 

For the Chapter. 



Beta Sigma Chapter of Beta Theta Pi deeply 
regrets the loss of Brother Jesse Merrill Blanch- 
ard, of the class of 1903. While in college he 
was prominent in both scholastic and athletic ac- 
tivities. After graduating he was engaged for 
six years as athletic director. Since that time he 
has been in business in Baltimore. 

The chapter takes this opportunity to extend 
its deepest sympathy to his family and friends 
and expresses its sorrow at the loss of a beloved 
brother.

'44. — Josiah Little Pickard, A.M., LL.D., was 
born at Rowley, Mass., March 17, 1824, son of 
Samuel Pickard, a former Overseer of the Col- 
lege, and Sarah (Coffin) Pickard. He was a de- 
scendant of John Pickard who came from Row- 
ley, England, in 1638 and settled at Rowley, Mass.

BOWDOIN ORIENT 



He prepared for college at Falls Academy, Lew- 
iston, and at Bowdoin was an honorary member 
of Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity. In 1844-45 
he taught in the academy at North Conway; in 
1846 in that at Elizabeth, 111., and from 1846 to 
i860 he was principal of the Plattsville Academy, 
Wisconsin. He was state superintendent of pub- 
lic instruction for Wisconsin 1860-64, superinten- 
dent of public schools in Chicago 1864-77, and 
was president of the State University of Iowa 
from June 1878 to September 1887. 

His administration of the affairs of the Uni- 
versity was marked by the abolition of the pre- 
paratory department and by the enlargement of 
the work of the chairs of history and natural 
science. His many-sided educational experience 
was especially valuable to the institution. In 
1871 he was president of the National Education- 
al Association and from 1881 to 1900 president of 
the Iowa Historical Society. Since 1887 Profes- 
sor Pickard has been engaged in literary work, 
publishing in that year School Supervision and in 
1889 History of Political Parties in the United 
States. From 1887 to 1900 his home was in Iowa 
City, Iowa, whence he removed to Supertino, 
California. 

He was married August 24, 1847, to Cornelia 
(Van Cleve) Woodhull of Newark, N. J., and 
had three children : Alice Electra, Fanny Matilda 
and Frederick William Pickard, also a nephew, 
Frederick William Pickard of the class of 1894. 
By his death, which occurred at Cupertino, Cali- 
fornia, on March 27, 1914, the College loses its 
second oldest graduate. 

'54. — Samuel Freeman, A.M., M.D., son of 
Rev. Charles Freeman of the class of 1812 and 
Salva (Abbot) Freeman, and grandson of Hon. 
Samuel Freeman, the second treasurer of the 
College, was born March 17, 1830 at Limerick, 
Maine. He received his early education in his 
native town. At Bowdoin he was a member of 
the Peucinian Society and the Psi Upsilon fra- 
ternity. After graduation he began the study of 
medicine, attended two courses of lectures at the 
Medical School of Maine and received the degree 
of M.D. from his Alma Mater in 1857. For a 
few months he acted as assistant to the port phy- 
sician at Boston and the following year settled in 
Chelsea, Mass., as a druggist. He was success- 
fully engaged in the business for nearly half a 
century, having his residence after 1868 at Ever- 
ett, Mass. Dr. Freeman was for two years a 
member of the city government of Chelsea, rep- 
resented it in the State Legislature of 1868, and 
also served as an overseer of the poor. 

News of his death, which occurred at his home 



in Everett, has been recently received. He is sur- 
vived by his wife, Annie A. Freeman, and their 
two sons, Charles W. Freeman, a druggist of 
Chelsea, Mass., and George F. Freeman, of the 
class of 1890, a surgeon in the United States 
Navy.

at the Maine General Hospital, Portland. 

'07. — Miss Florence E. Murphy and Fulton J.. 
Redman were united in marriage April 14, in 
Newark, N. J. 

'09. — The committee of arrangements for the 
fifth reunion of the class of 1909, to be held at 
next Commencement, met in Portland recently. 
It was voted to issue a challenge to the class of 
1904, which is to hold its tenth anniversary, for a 
track meet and ball game at the Gurnet on Wed- 
nesday afternoon of Commencement week. It 
was also voted to hold a grand celebration in the 
shape of fireworks and a band concert in front of 
the Alexander house, which will be headquarters 
for the class during the week. The committee is 
composed of William M. Harris of Westbrook, 
Ralph O. Brewster of Portland, John S. Simmons, 
of New York and Irving Rich of Portland.

NO. 4 



NORWICH TOMORROW 

Bowdoin's last game before the opening of the 
Maine series is with Norwich on Whittier Field 
tomorrow afternoon. This is the first time Bow- 
doin and Norwich have met for a number of 
years. The game will start at 3.45. 



BOWDOIN vs MAINE 
The line-up for the Maine game had not been 
announced up to a late hour before going to 
press. Either Knight or Fraser will probably 
start in the box. Blanket tax tickets are good 
for admission. Reserved seat tickets go on sale 
in the managers' room at 1 o'clock Thursday 
noon. 



TRINITY 6, BOWDOIN 

Trinity won Saturday's game with Bowdoin by 
scoring four runs in the first inning and another 
in the second ; after that it was a pitchers' battle 
between Fraser and Ferris. Fraser allowed four 
hits in six innings and Ferris the same number in 
the full nine. Knight had an off day and was 
touched up for eight hits in the first two ses- 
sions. 

Bowdoin had a good chance to score in the first 
inning, when Phillips hit safely, stole second, and 
went to third on an infield out, but was left there 
when Tuttle struck out. 

Bowdoin hit the ball hard but fine fielding by 
Trinity spoiled a number of drives that were 
labelled for safeties. In the fourth, Schmitt 
caught a long drive from McElwee that looked 
good for extra bases. Goodskey, Tuttle, McEl- 
wee did Sfood work in the field.

BOWDOIN LOSES DUAL MEET 
Coach Kanaly's team of fliers won a decided 
victory in the dual meet on Whittier Field Satur- 
day. With one or more stars in every track 
event, they made almost a clean sweep of this 
part of the meet. Bowdoin's strength lay in the 
field events, especially in the weights. Although 
a defeat, the results of the meet are gratifying 
rather than disappointing to the followers of 
Bowdoin track athletics. Bowdoin could not ex- 
pect to win the meet from the Massachusetts 
team of veterans, and the showing made against 
them, considering the lack of outdoor work, 
makes the prospects of the meets with Trinity 
and the Maine colleges look brighter. 

Leadbetter '16 was the high point man of the 
meet, taking first place in the hammer throw and 
second in the shot and discus. 

The feature of the afternoon was the two-mile 
run, which was won by Cook of Tech. The time 
of the race was 9 minutes, 55 3-5 seconds, or a 
whole second faster than the record made by 
Powers of Maine in the state meet last year. The 
time of all of the events was good, in considera-

will support the affirmative. The presiding offi- 
cer will be Edward W. Wheeler of Brunswick. 
The judges will be Professor S. Percy R. Chad- 
wick of Phillips-Exeter Academy, Rev. Frank L. 
Vernon of Portland and Professor Halbert H. 
Britan of Bates College. The college orchestra 
will furnish music. The Wesleyan speakers will 
be William H. Reeves '16, Eldon H. Martin '16

Freeman '16 as alternate. The Bowdoin men 
will be, in the order of their main speeches, 
Leigh '14, Edwards '16 and Tackaberry '15. In 
rebuttal the order will be Edwards, Tackaberry 
and Leigh. Edwards was alternate but will prob- 
ably take the place of Talbot who is ill with the 
mumps. At a late hour before going to press it 
was thought that Talbot will be unable to speak. 
At the same time as this debate, Bowdoin will 
be upholding the negative side of the question 
against Hamilton at Clinton, N. Y., and a Ham- 
ilton team will support the negative against a 
Wesleyan affirmative team at Middletown, Conn. 
At Clinton, Jones '16, Keddy '15 and Walker '14,. 
with Pohl '14 alternate, will debate for Hamilton, 
while Bacon '15, Parsons '16 and Gage '14, with 
McKenney '15 alternate, will support the Bow- 
doin side of the issue. 



TRIANGULAR LEAGUE DEBATES TONIGHT 
Tonight, in Memorial Hall, Bowdoin meets 
Wesleyan in a debate on the subject, "Resolved, 



BOWDOIN 4, PORTLAND N.E. LEAGUE 3 

Clean hitting and fast fielding won for Bow- 
doin against the Portland New England League 
team on Patriots' Day, while the professional 
ball players had all kinds of difficulty in hitting 
Fraser and Knight safely. Sam Fraser made his 
debut into varsity baseball by holding his oppo- 
nents to three hits in six innings and by fanning 
five men. He did not allow a pass. He was 
taken out in the seventh to make way for a pinch 
hitter and was succeeded by Knight who held 
control at all times. 

McElwee and Chapman did good work in the 
field, McElwee making a spectacular catch of a 
foul fly in the third close to the third base bleach- 
ers. In the next inning Chapman made a swell 
assist on a ground ball from Cooney and turned 
in another in the sixth. 

Weatherill scored Bowdoin's first run in the 
opening inning. He was followed by Stetson in 
the third, Weatherill again in the fifth, and by 
Eaton in the sixth, who turned in what proved to 
be the winning run. 

Portland scored twice in the seventh, but 
Knight tightened up and these two runs ended the 
scoring.

SECOND TEAM LOSES 

The second baseball team lost its first game of

by the score of 5 to 4. It was a hard fought 



game and except for the second inning Bowdoin 
played good ball. Rawson struck out seven men 
and allowed but five hits. "Biff" Pratt '14 se- 
cured the long hit of the day by pounding out a 
three-bagger in the fifth. Captain Larrabee and

SUNDAY CHAPEL 

The college preacher last Sunday was Dr 
George A. Jordon of the Old South Church, Bos- 
ton. His topic was "Perfect Advice to Youth" 
and was based wholly on Burns's Epistle to a 
Young Friend. 



ANNUAL SPRING RALLY 

Last Friday night in Memorial Hall was held 
one of the most successful rallies ever seen at 
Bowdoin. Practically the whole student body at- 
tended, and the Tech track team, which had just 
arrived at Brunswick, was given a chance to see 
some real Bowdoin spirit. Little American flags, 
and watch-fobs with the Bowdoin seal on them 
were given out as souvenirs; while tobacco, ice- 
cieam cones, and macaroons were all to be had 
for the asking. 

Through the efforts of the committee, which 
was composed of Gray '14, Thompson '14 and 
McWilliams '15, some of the best speakers among 
the alumni were secured. Thompson presided at 
the rally. Clifford '10 of Lewiston spoke on 
college spirit, comparing our present spirit favor- 
ably with that of his time. Hawes '76 of Bangor 
spoke against the raising of scholarship standards 
here at Bowdoin. Welch '12 of Portland spoke 
on the advantages which a small college, like 
Bowdoin, has over larger institutions. He also 
recited several selections which were one of the 
features of the evening's entertainment. Smith 
'15, Jack Magee, MacCormick '15, Dr. Whittier 
and Callahan '14 all gave short talks on Bowdoin 
athletics and future prospects. The college band 
was much in evidence during the evening, and 
helped to make the 1914 Spring Rally one of the 
best ever seen here.

The Wesleyan Debate 

Those who heard the spirited debate last year 
between Hamilton and Bowdoin have been look- 
ing forward to hearing with keen pleasure the 
long-deferred Bowdoin-Wesleyan debate, which 
takes place tomorrow evening in Memorial Hall. 
This delay has undoubtedly been beneficial from 
the standpoint of the hearer, for the extra time 
has enabled both teams to strengthen and develop 
their cases to such a degree as to make a closely 
contested debate a certainty. The Bowdoin team 
met a serious obstacle Sunday, when it was an- 
nounced that a veteran member of the team had 
been taken sick and would be unable to compete. 
The reorganization of a team with the substitu- 
tion of an alternate in two days is no mean task, 
and a heavy burden is thrown on the alternate as 



well as on his colleagues. In spite of this handi- 
cap, the team which will represent Bowdoin in 
the home debate is a strong one and defeat is far 
from being a certainty. 



A Bowdoin Infirmary 

The epidemic of mumps which for several 
weeks has been going through the College, taking 
men from various activities and exposing all to 
sickness which is neither dangerous nor pleasant, 
raises a time-honored question. Should not Bow- 
doin have an infirmary? It is evident that a sick- 
ness which keeps a man in his room in a crowded 
dormitory and makes him dependent on those 
around him for food and attendance, loses little 
of its power of contagion through such segrega- 
tion. In cases in which the disease is a danger- 
ous one, it has been found necessary to have all 
or part of a dormitory vacated. 

By an infirmary we do not mean a hospital 
building with a corps of doctors and nurses, for 
such a thing is a manifest impossibility with the 
means at hand. It does seem possible that a room 
or rooms be reserved in charge of a competent 
person, perhaps in the home of a small family in' 
town, at little expense. The services of the col- 
lege physician and if necessary of trained nurses 
would be available and a patient could be given as 
good care as he would receive at home. The con- 
tagion of others could be prevented and sick- 
nesses would be of shorter duration than they are 
in the unfavorable conditions of dormitory life. 

The fund to provide for such an infirmary 
would not have to be a large one. Expenses dur- 
ing sickness would be met by the patient, while 
the expenses of upkeep would not necessarily be 
great. A care taker could undoubtedly be found, 
for whom the use of rooms adjacent to the in- 
firmary rooms would be partial recompense. We 
feel that the great good to be derived will some 
day be found to balance the cost of such an in- 
stitution, and that provision will be made by en- 
dowment or college appropriation. 



The Championship Series 

Bowdoin enters on the annual race for the 
baseball pennant next Saturday when she meets 
Maine on Whittier Field. At the present writing 
the team has lost three out of four games, due 
largely to the fact that they have been unable to 
hit consistently. To those who forget that when 
Bowdoin entered on the championship series last 
spring, she had won only two games of seven 
played, prospects for a championship team do 
not look promising. Yet the scores of early sea- 
son games have proved themselves so little indi- 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



29 



cative of what a Bowdoin team will do in the 
state series, that we can judge little of what our 
final standing will be. In the light of cold rea- 
son, Bowdoin's chances look not one whit less 
promising than they did when practice began. 
We have a team of championship calibre, ap- 
praising the men as individuals and as a team, 
and we have every confidence that they will prove 
this fact in the series to come. The adjustment 
to outdoor conditions after long practice indoors 
is a slow process, but we prophesy a hard-hitting 
team before the fight for the pennant has fairly 
begun. We also prophesy that a companion to 
the 1913 pennant will deck the den of the Polar 
Bear next June.

INTERCLASS MEET SATURDAY 
An interclass meet will follow the baseball' 
game on Whittier Field next Saturday. This 
meet will be in the nature of trials for the Trin- 
ity trip, although final trials will probably be held 
Wednesday, May 6. 



CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES BEGINS 

Next Saturday afternoon the fight for the base- 
ball championship of the Maine colleges begins, 
Bowdoin and Maine meeting at Brunswick and 
Bates and Colby at Waterville. To attempt to 
figure out the winner is practically impossible, 
especially since scores of early season games are 
contradictory. After defeating Bowdoin 4 to o, 
Bates lost to the Portland New England League 
team 15 to 1, a team which Bowdoin beat 4 to 3. 

For veterans, Bowdoin is as well fixed as any 
of the other colleges. In the box, Knight and 
Rawson are both veterans of last year, while 
Fraser has been showing all kinds of promise. 
His work in the Portland and Trinity games 
shows his ability to come through in a pinch and 
it is possible that he will pitch the opening game 
next Saturday. Behind the bat, Captain LaCasce 
has shown an improvement over his last year's 
work, and barring accidents, will catch the re- 
mainder of the season. 

Bowdoin is particularly well supplied with in- 
fielders. At first, Eaton is playing a consistent 
game. Weatherill, McElwee, Cooley, Chapman 
and Kelley are all out for the infield. McElwee 
at third looks like a fixture. His fielding has been 
clean and sharp and his batting good. 

Stetson did not play in the Trinity game on ac- 
count of a lame leg but will probably be able to 
play in the Maine game Saturday. Tuttle has 
been hitting the ball hard and often, but has been 
unable to place his hits in open territory. The 
work of Goodskey in centerfield has proved one 
of the features of the team. His batting, while 
not heavy, is consistent, and he is a sure man in 
the field. 

The University of Maine has a veteran bat- 
tery — Driscoll, who puzzled the Bowdoin bats- 
men in the opening game last year, and Abbott, 
who has been the mainstay behind the bat for

four years. 

Colby's best bet is James, who gives promise of 
developing his speed and control of last year. 
Colby has been defeated by Maine 6 to o in a 
three-inning game, has split even with Dart- 
mouth and has been beaten twice by Vermont. 

Bowdoin fans have already seen the Bates 
team work out. The Lewiston team will be a 
strong contestant in the series. Bates is well sup- 
plied with twirlers, having the veterans Moore, 
Stinson and Lindquist, and Winslow, a promising 
Freshman. 



land, Leadbetter, Niven, Noble, Parsons and Say- 
ward. The Freshmen have not yet been chosen. 



LIBRARY ASSISTANT 

A vacancy exists in the staff of student assis- 
tants in the Library to be filled from the class of 
1917. To fill this position with fairness to all 
who have applied, the selection will be made on 
the basis of a competitive examination of an hour 
to be held in the librarian's office at 4.30 p. m. 
Thursday, April 30. The examination is simple, 
requires no preparation and is intended to test 
manual dexterity, mental accuracy, and general 
information. All who desire to take this exami- 
nation will kindly hand in their names before 
noon on Thursday. 



1912 REUNION 

The annual reunion of the class of 1912 was 
held at Riverton Casino, Portland, last 
week, twenty members being present with their 
invited guests. The chaperones were Mrs. C. A. 
Robinson of Portland and Mrs. Edith F. White 
of Brunswick, mother of Richard White '12 who 
was lost on the Titanic. During the evening 
Bowdoin songs were sung and Arthur D. Welch 
gave several delightful readings. 

Members of the class present were George C. 
Kern, Seward Marsh, Carl O. Warren, Walter 
Greenleaf, Benjamin Riggs, Joseph O'Neil, Ar- 
thur D. Welch, Jesse McKenney, Harrison C. 
Chapman, Joseph H. Newell, George Tibbetts, 
H. L. Lombard, F. W. Hughes, H. A. Davis, 
Edward Morss, William Holt, George Cressey, 
Leland Means, Allan Woodcock and Frank A.

TEACHERS' CONVENTION 
The Teachers' Associations of Cumberland and 
Sagadahoc Counties met in Memorial Hall last 
Friday. State Superintendent of Schools Payson 
Smith delivered the opening address and told of 
the prominent part Bowdoin has played in the 
education of the state as a whole and of its ser- 
vices to the elementary schools. Dr. James A. 
Spalding of Portland spoke on the "Conservation 
of Vision." President Hyde was the last speaker 
of the morning. His subject was "Seeds of 
Morals." In the afternoon Dean Sarah Louise 
Arnold of Simmons College spoke on the 
"Teacher as Interpreter." President Harry Gar- 
field of Williams College spoke on "The Teach- 
er's Greatest Task." Dr. David Snedden, com- 
missioner of education for Massachusetts, was 
the last speaker ; he discussed "Some Problems 
Involved in Rendering Public Education More 
Efficient." At 4 o'clock a reception was held in 
honor of the speakers and teachers by the faculty 
in Hubbard Hall. 



IN HONOR OF SHAKESPEARE 

Exercises in commemoration of the 350th an- 
niversary of the birth of William Shakespeare 
were held in the Chapel Thursday morning, Pro- 
fessor Elliott speaking on the significance of 
Shakespeare for America, especially for Ameri- 
can college students. 



MUSICAL CLUBS CONCERT 

The first home concert of the year by the Musi- 
cal Clubs will be given next Saturday evening in

a dance, for which the college orchestra will 
play. The joint concert with Bates at Lewiston 
is scheduled for May 18. 



CHANGES IN SCHEDULE 
The baseball game with Tufts on May 23 will 
be played in Brunswick instead of Portland. It

Resolutions 

Editor of the Orient : 

Will you allow me the use of your valued 
columns to bear tribute in behalf of his class- 
mates to the memory of Jesse Merrill Blanchard 
whose death at Williamsburg, Va., was reported 
in your issue of last week. To his classmates and 
the undergraduates whose privilege it was to 
know him his life was an inspiration. With his 
ready smile and his always sunny disposition he 
was the embodiment of good fellowship. His 
chief characteristic, however, was the intensity 
of purpose that guided his every action. Whether 
in the classroom, on the athletic field, or in the 
gymnasium he played the game hard and fair. A 
"B" man in both baseball and football, an instruc- 
tor in the gymnasium, his crowning achievement 
was his election to Phi Beta Kappa at graduation. 
He was indeed every inch a man. In his death 
Bowdoin loses an honored son and we a loving 
friend and classmate. 

To his bereaved wife and relatives we extend 
our deepest sympathy. 

"Green be the turf above thee, 
Friend of my better days; 
None knew thee but to love thee, 
Nor named thee but to praise." 
(Signed) Donald E. MacCormick, 

Secretary Class of IP03. 
Framingham, Mass., April 20, 19 14.

'61. — Loring Farr, son of Elijah and Ruth 
(Sampson) Farr, was born June 2, 1835 at Man- 
chester, Maine. He received his early education 
in the public schools 0$ his native town. At 
Bowdoin he was a member of the Athenian So- 
ciety, an officer of the General Philologian So- 
ciety, and received an election to Phi Beta Kappa 
at graduation. The following year he entered 
the Nineteenth Maine Volunteers as orderly ser- 
geant of Company G, and was promoted succes- 
sively to be second and first lieutenant in that 
company. He was severely wounded at the bat- 
tle of Cold Harbor, and after recovery from his 
wound was commissioned as captain in the 
United States Veteran Volunteers, General Han- 
cock's corps. He served till after the close of the 
war and on leaving the army was the ranking- 
captain in his corps. He engaged in teaching in 
the West for a few years and then studied law 
and was admitted to the bar at St. Louis in 1873. 
Four years later he began the practice of his pro- 
fession at Augusta, Maine, where he continued 
professional work till 1893. In that year he re- 
tired to his old home at Manchester, Maine, where 
he engaged in farming and literary work till the 
failure of his health. He died after a long ill- 
ness, April 9, 191 4. 

Captain Farr never married. During the lat- 
ter portion of his life he often used the initials 
G. S. between his christian and surname. Of him 
the class secretary writes as follows: "He had 
an honorable career in the Union Army, and at 
the bar, and cherished a high ambition as an 
author, which circumstances that he could not 



control prevented him from realizing. We re- 
member his genial presence, his pleasant smile 
and his strong attachment to the college and to 
his classmates." 

ex-'yy. — William Andrew Golden, for many 
years in the practice of law in Portland, died in 
that city on April 9, 1914. 

'90. — Henry H. Hastings of Bethel was elected 
secretary of the Republican State Committee at a 
meeting of that committee in Augusta recently. 

'97. — Professor S. O. Andros of the Illinois 
State Geological Survey has just issued an inter- 
esting pamphlet on the practice of coal mining 
followed in the Danville district of that state. 
This is a publication of Coal Mining Investiga- 
tions carried on by an agreement between the 
state and the national governments. 

'99. — One of the most interesting papers at a 
recent congress in Berlin of the German Ortho- 
pedic Society was delivered by Dr. F. H. Albee of 
New York, who described the results obtained 
from 250 successful operations for tuberculosis 
of the vertebras. The operations were carried out 
by transplanting a chip or splinter from the shin- 
bone to the affected part of the spine. Dr. Albee 
stated that the method was technically simple, 
and the operated patient promptly recovered from 
the effects. The congress received Dr. Albee's 
paper with marked favor, but the speakers who 
discussed it said that German orthopedists had 
not had sufficient experience with the method to 
recommend it unreservedly. 

'03. — Donald E. MacCormick has been elected 
head of the department of mathematics at the 
William Penn Charter School, Philadelphia, to 
begin in September. For the past five years Mr. 
MacCormick has held a similar position in the 
Volkmann School, Boston. Other Bowdoin men 
on the Penn Charter faculty are Frederick L. 
Smith '86, David Owen '89 and Robert D. Cole 
'12. 

'04. — Ernest L. Brigham, who is in the employ 
of the International Banking Corporation, re- 
cently spent his vacation at his former home in 
Kennebunk, having been transferred from the 
Hong Kong office to that at Panama. 

'05. — Mr. Ray Pettengill and wife with baby, 
George Awald, are visiting for a short time with 
Mrs. Pettengill's mother, Mrs. George T. Little. 

'09. — Dr. Ezra R. Bridge has recently become 
first assistant physician at the Loomis Sanatorium 
in Loomis, New York. 

'n._W. F. Merrill and E. G. Fifield, members 
of this year's graduating class at Harvard Law 
School, are connected prominently with the Har- 
vard Legal Aid Bureau, conducted by the stu- 
dents to give free legal advice for those in need. 



BOWDOIN ORILNT 



VOL. XLIV 



BRUNSWICK. MAINE, MAY 5, 1914 



NO. 5 



BOWDOIN 4, MAINE 3 

For ten hard-fought innings the Polar Bear 
and the Maine Elephant battled on Whittier 
Field. For the first six innings the game appeared 
to be indisputably Maine's, but in the eventful 
seventh Goodskey, Fraser, Phillips and VVeath- 
erill located the ball for a hit apiece, scored three 
runs, and brought from cover a new pitcher. 
Maine rallied behind Fox, and played tight ball 
for two innings, but in the tenth three hits and a 
favorable decision at the plate gave Bowdoin the 
game and a leg on the state championship. 

The credit for the victory cannot be given en- 
tirely to any one man. To praise one is to praise 
all. But there is one player who certainly de- 
serves a lion's share of the tribute to the victors ; 
that one is Sam Fraser. Pitching his first big 
game for the White, and allowing only four hits 
in ten innings against a team of heavy hitters, 
Sam came through his ordeal a victor. No 
limited praise can be given to the men behind 
Fraser. Every man was putting his best into the 
battle with the old rival, and the total effort re- 
sulted in the win. 

The fact that in the ten innings only two at- 
tempts were made to steal bases is a significant 
tribute to the reputation of both catchers. Cap- 
tain LaCasce gave further proof in the game 
Saturday that he is in the best of form this sea- 
son and will make a steady backstop for the 
Bowdoin battery. 

Phillips, a new man on the line-up, played a 
good game in the field, and did some excellent 
base running. 

After seeing the team playing the ball they did 
against Maine, and being assured that in Fraser 
we have a pitcher on whom we can rely to come 
through with the goods in a crisis, have we not 
every right to back Bowdoin to the limit to bring 
home the 1914 state championship? 

The game in detail follows: 

First Inning. — Lawry went out, Weatherill to 
Eaton. Cobb drove a high fly to Phillips. Hack- 
ett was out, Weatherill to Eaton. 

Phillips and Weatherill were out on ground 
balls to Lawry and Gilman, respectively. Mc- 
Elwee's hard grounder through the box was 
knocked down by Driscoll and fielded by Lawry. 



Second Inning.— Fraser handled Baker's ground 
ball perfectly. Abbott drove a fly to Chapman. 
Gilman drew a base on balls, but was left when 
Eaton caught Chase's foul fly. 

Tuttle got on through Pendleton's error and 
took second on Eaton's sacrifice. Chapman and 
Goodskey fanned. 

Third Inning. — Pendleton, Driscoll and Lawry 
were out on ground balls to Weatherill. 

LaCasce struck out. Fraser and Phillips hit to 
Driscoll. 

Fourth Inning.— Cobb died via the McElwee- 
Eaton route. Hackett got on through Chapman's 
wild peg, taking second on the play. Baker hit to 
left field for two bases, the first hit of the game. 
Hackett scored. Abbott followed with a single to 
center, taking second on the throw in, and Baker 
scoring on the hit. Chapman caught Gilman's 
fly. Chase drew a pass. Pendleton hit to center, 
Abbott scoring. Chase and Pendleton advanced 
a base when Goodskey let the hit get through him. 
Driscoll got a base on balls, but Lawry hit to 
Phillips, ending the half inning. 

Weatherill fanned. McElwee beat out a ground 
ball to Pendleton. Pendleton caught Tuttle's fly. 
Chase dropped Eaton's long fly to right field, Mc- 
Elwee advancing to third, but Chapman's fly was 
caught by Hackett. Score, Maine 3, Bowdoin o. 

Fifth Inning. — Cobb went out to Tuttle. Hack- 
ett was given a base on balls, and reached second 
when Chapman dropped LaCasce's throw, the 
ball rolling to right field. Hackett tried to reach 
third, but was caught on a perfect throw, Tuttle 
to McElwee. McElwee caught Baker's fly. 

Goodskey hit to center, but was caught at sec- 
ond when LaCasce tried to sacrifice. Fraser and 
Phillips went out on fouls to Abbott. 

Sixth Inning. — Chapman caught Abbott's fly. 
Gilman hit safely just inside the first base line 
and took second on a passed ball. Chase was out, 
Weatherill to Eaton. Pendleton died, LaCasce 
to Eaton. 

Weatherill singled between first and second and 
took third on McElwee's double to the same 
place. Tuttle and Eaton struck out and Chapman 
hit to Lawry. 

Seventh Inning. — Chapman fielded Driscoll's 
grounder. Lawry died by the same route. Cobb

got on through Chapman's error but McElwee 
captured Hackett's foul. 

Goodskey hit safely to right field. LaCasce 
drove a fly to Chase. Fraser connected safely 
and took second when Chase let the ball go 
through him, Goodskey scoring. Phillips's hit 
advanced Fraser to third. Phillips stole second. 
Weatherill hit to center, Fraser scoring and 
Weatherill taking third. Fox relieved Driscoll. 
Fox tried to catch Weatherill off third, but 
Weatherill made a dash for second, sliding safe- 
ly into the base when Pendleton dropped Baker's 
throw. McElwee and Tuttle fanned. Score, 
Bowdoin 3, Maine 3. 

Eighth Inning. — Baker was given a pass, but 
was doubled on Abbott's fly to Tuttle. Gilman 
struck out. 

Eaton's fly was caught by Lawry. Chapman 
hit to third, and Goodskey fanned. 

Ninth Inning. — Chase got on through Eaton's 
error and took second on Pendleton's out, Chap- 
man to Eaton. LaCasce caught Fox's fly and 
Lawry hit to Goodskey. 

LaCasce was out, Lawry to Baker. Fraser and 
Phillips struck out. 

Tenth Inning. — Cobb died, McElwee to Eaton. 
Phillips caught Hackett's foul fly and Chapman 
caught Baker's pop. 

Weatherill got on through Lawry's error. Mc- 
Elwee fanned. Tuttle advanced Weatherill with 
a hit over short. Eaton struck out. Fox knocked 
down Chapman's hard drive. The ball rolled to 
Gilman who threw to first, after a minute's hesita- 
tion, too late to catch Chapman. Weatherill 
scored from second on the play.

NORWICH GAME CANCELLED 

The Norwich game scheduled for Wednesday 
afternoon was cancelled on account of rain. Both 
teams took the field for practice but the drizzle 
steadily increased and the game was called off. 



BOWDOIN PLAYS COLBY SATURDAY 

Bowdoin plays Colby at Brunswick next Satur- 
day in the second game of the state series. Bates 
defeated Colby 6 to 2 at Waterville last Satur- 
day. Neither team has given out its line-up but 
no radical changes are expected in the Bowdoin 
team. 



DEBATERS WIN AND LOSE 

The two-year debating agreement entered into 
by Hamilton College, Wesleyan University and 
Bowdoin College, has expired without giving any 
one of the three a claim to the championship. 
T,his year, as last year, the home team, supporting 
the affirmative, won in each of the three debates, 
which occurred simultaneously on Tuesday even- 
ing, April 28. 

G. W. Bacon '15, H. T. Parsons '16 and E. C. 
Gage '14 lost at Clinton, N. Y., by a unanimous 
decision to Jones '16, Keddy '15 and Walker '14, 
representing Hamilton. 

R. D. Leigh '14, F. P. McKenney '15 and W. 
G. Tackaberry '15 won at Brunswick by a two-to- 
one decision from W. H. Reeves '16, E. H. Mar- 
tin '16 and H. R. Willoughby '15. representing 
Wesleyan. 

The question discussed was : That a federal 
commission should be established for the regula- 
tion of trusts. The judges at Bowdoin were 
Professor Halbert H. Britan of Bates, Professor 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



35 



S. Percy R. Chadwick of Exeter and Rev. Frank 
L. Vernon of Portland. Hon. E. W. Wheeler 
presided. 

The contest at Hamilton was acknowledged to 
be close. Hamilton favored an advisory commis- 
sion. Bowdoin proved unable to convince the 
judges either that such a commission would not 
truly "regulate" trusts, or that its establishment 
was inadvisable. Local press reports credited 
Gage with having been the best speaker of the 
evening. 

At Bowdoin, the affirmative contended that an 
extension of present trust control by the govern- 
ment is desirable, that dissolution is an impossi- 
ble alternative to regulation, and that the com- 
mission method of regulation is preferable to the 
judicial method. The negative contended that 
Congress itself should regulate trusts by revising 
the protective tariff and by enacting necessary 
provisions and prohibitions, that method of ad- 
ministration by commission is foreign and inimi- 
cal to our institutions and ideals, and that present 
needs would be met by a simple extension of the 
powers now exercised by the Bureau of Corpora- 
tions. Whereas the negative depended almost 
wholly upon the force of its general argument, 
the affirmative refuted negative arguments in de- 
tail and at the same time advanced and reenforced 
its own case. -Leigh '14 as first and last speaker 
in the debate showed marked skill in analysis and 
in presentation. The work of McKenney '15 at- 
tracted and rewarded attention. Talbot '15 who 
had been selected for the position was seized with 
the mumps four days before the debate. While 
Edwards '16, alternate on the team, was prepar- 
ing to take Talbot's place, he too became ill with 
the mumps. McKenney, originally chosen as al- 
ternate on the team against Hamilton, was re- 
called by telegraph from Boston on Monday and 
had no small part in securing the award for Bow- 
doin. Mr. Willoughby was notably effective for 
the Wesleyan team, being especially good in his 
main speech. 



TRINITY MEET SATURDAY 
Bowdoin and Trinity clash in a dual meet at 
Hartford next Saturday. Last year Bowdoin de- 
feated Trinity 72 to 54, but the track material in 
both colleges has changed considerably since then. 
According to Coach Magee and Captain Smith, 
who have gone over the prospects carefully, the 
meet will be close, with the odds favoring Bow- 
doin. One point in favor of Trinity is that the 
home team will probably have a larger number 
of contestants from whom to jdraw possible 
thirds. 



The Bowdoin squad has improved wonderfully 
since the dual meet with Tech April 25, and al- 
though no times were given out in the interclass 
meet last Friday, it is understood that great im- 
provements were made over previous work this 
spring. 

Bowdoin will probably take about 25 men, prob- 
ably those who placed or made creditable show- 
ings in the Tech meet. Among the Bowdoin men 
who will probably make the trip are Captain 
Smith, Fox, McWilliams, Balfe, Fuller, L. Dona- 
hue, Cutler, Irving, Crosby, H. White, Wood, 
Leadbetter, Moulton, Lewis, Humphrey, McKen- 
ney, Merrill and Sampson. 

Hudson, Trinity's giant hammer and discus 
thrower, will doubtless cut in on Bowdoin in the 
weight events. Other Trinity men who have been 
doing good work are Wessels, who last year won 
the half and second in the two-mile, Furnival, 
who won the quarter in the Maine meet last Sat- 
urday, and who took third in the Bowdoin meet 
last year, and Spofford, who is a good distance 
man. 

Trinity has shown no strength this year in the 
pole vault, the broad jump, the high jump, but has 
at least one good man in every other event. 

Maine defeated Trinity 90 1-3 to 35 1-3 at 
Orono last Saturday. Hudson took 18 points, 
ten of them in the events in which Bowdoin is 
weak. 



SONG CONTEST AWARD 

The award of $50 in the prize song contest has 
been made to George Sumner of St. Albans, Vt. 
This contest was for the best music for the prize 
song written by Robinson '14 and was open to 
everyone, though Bowdoin men were to be given 
the preference. There were over 60 contestants, 
of whom only two were undergraduates and three 
alumni. The winning music is in spirited march 
form with a catchy, singable chorus, suitable to 
an athletic song such as "Forward the White" is 
intended to be. It has already been tried by the 
Musical Clubs and it is planned to introduce it at 
some college sing in the near future. The judges 
were the members of the Faculty Music Com- 
mittee, Professor Wass, chairman, and Profes- 
sor Woodruff and Dr. Burnett. 



NEW COLLECTION BOWDOIN SONGS 

Professor Wass is now preparing a new col- 
lection of college songs, which is to include all 
the Bqwdoin songs, the old familiar ones, the 
more recent Burnett songs, and the new prize 
song.

The New Regulations 

The recent change in the entrance requirements 
to allow candidates for admission credit up to a 
maximum of two units for work in certain 
courses which have heretofore been barred out is 
exciting a great deal of comment. On the campus 
opinions are not wholly in favor of the change, 
though the majority welcome the apparent broad- 
ening of policy on the part of the College. 

It has been argued against the change that a 
number of men will be allowed entrance who will 
be below the standard. It is hardly probable, 
however, that the introduction of a few more 
courses to the list of those which are acceptable 
will make a great change in the rigidity of the 
requirements. A high quality of work will be re- 



quired and special supervision will be exercised 
over these courses. They will be allowed to count 
for only a small proportion of the units required, 
so no wholesale admission of those who have 
taken only commercial courses in preparatory 
schools will be possible. 

In that it offers the possibility of getting into 
Bowdoin to men who have found it necessary to 
pursue other than classical courses, the policy of 
the College is a broad and beneficent one. 



The Track Club 

Since the suggestion made recently by Coach 
Magee of the track team with regard to the estab- 
lishing of a Track Club, we have been awaiting 
the formation of such an organization, in view 
of the interest shown at that time. The possi- 
bilities of the club seem great and if we are to 
realize those possibilities we may well begin dur- 
ing the present season, when its organization will 
give added impetus to the new spirit in track 
athletics. 

The Track Club, if formed for the greatest ef- 
ficiency, would not be an organization similar to 
the B.B.B. and Monday Night Clubs, of which 
only 'Varsity baseball and football men are ac- 
tive members. These clubs hold meetings very 
rarely and membership in them has come to mean 
simply that a man wears the "B." The Track 
Club, on the contrary, would have as members 
all men who go out for track. After the first or- 
ganization, men could be voted into membership 
at the suggestion of the coach, the captain, or 
any member. The club should not have the cap- 
tain and manager of the track team become of- 
ficers automatically. At the time when the club 
should be most active, these men will be most 
busy. The officers should be men who are deeply 
interested in the track work, but who have time 
to arrange a schedule of meetings and see that 
they are successfully held. 

The opportunities of the club, if well organized 
and directed, are many and varied. First, there 
is need of meetings similar to the one held before 
the Technology meet, when all the track men met 
at one of the fraternity houses and listened to the 
coach talk, on track work in general and on the 
particular events in which they were to compete. 
Through the winter and spring, the coach could 
give a series of informal talks before the club on 
track work, methods of training, and kindred sub- 
jects. Such talks would be of value not only to 
men competing in college but to those who after 
graduation will be called on to do amateur coach- 
ing of one sort or another. The talks by the 
coach could be interspersed by talks from outside 



BOWDOIN ORIENT

speakers, such men as B.A.A. runners or officials. 

By cooperating with the rally committee of the 
Student Council, the Track Club would make pos- 
sible the holding of rallies devoted more especial- 
ly to track interests. For each of these rallies at 
least one speaker from outside connected promi- 
nently with track work and of sufficient reputa- 
tion to excite interest through the whole College 
could be secured. 

The club, besides keeping up enthusiasm among 
the track men in College, would be a great force 
in attracting preparatory school athletes to Bow- 
doin. 'Varsity men could be sent to speak at 
schools, to coach schools which have no coaching, 
and whenever possible to give a definite idea of 
what Bowdoin .offers. Besides these and other 
direct methods, the existence of the Track Club 
as a powerful, effective organization would have 
an indirect influence on preparatory school men. 

We do not expect that the Track Club would 
do all of these things as soon as organized, but 
that with a small beginning it would widen the 
scope of its activities. We believe that there is a 
definite place for such an organization and that 
those most interested in track athletics at the 
present time would welcome such an organiza- 
tion. 



NEW ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS 

Beginning next fall, candidates for admission 
may offer, under certain conditions, two points 
in such subjects as manual training, botany, civ- 
ics, mechanical drawing, music, physical geogra- 
phy, and commercial subjects. This change in 
entrance requirements is in line with Bowdoin's 
previously expressed determination to bring a 
closer relation between the College and prepara- 
tory schools. Many school superintendents and 
high school principals have supported such an in- 
novation on the grounds that the average second- 
ary school has not the equipment to prepare men 
for immediate business or for college. Bowdoin 
still maintains that rigid requirements are best 
and but a limited number of the new subjects may 
be offered. 

It is understood that these subjects count half 
a unit each and that they cannot be offered by 
men who are already in college but who lack a 
part of their entrance points. 

The official statement sent to principals of col- 
lege preparatory schools follows: 

"The College is firmly of the opinion that the 
subjects commonly offered and demanded by its 
catalogue are the best preparation for a college 
course as given at Bowdoin at present; and ad- 
vises students to make their preparation from 



these courses exclusively whenever it is possible 
to do so. The College also recognizes the fact 
that high schools are asking for credit for other 
subjects which have educational value. It is 
therefore willing to consider applications for 
credit of not more than two units for work in 
such subjects as botany, civics, commercial sub- 
jects, manual training, mechanical drawing, mu- 
sic, and physical geography. For the present all 
such applications will be treated individually. 
The principal may apply for such credit in a let- 
ter addressed to the dean, stating the nature of 
the courses with the number of hours required,, 
and the rank and attainments of the student in 
question. The recording committee of the Col- 
lege will examine the reports carefully, inquire- 
into the nature of the work done in the courses, 
and give credit from one-half to two units as the 
case may warrant. This policy goes into effect 
immediately and applications will be considered 
from principals for students who desire to enter 
college in September, 1914." 



COMMUNICATIONS 

M.I.T., Boston, May 1, 1914. 
To the Editor of the Orient : 

May I have a little space in the Orient, of 
which well toward forty years ago I filled a good 
deal, to express my warm admiration for the plea 
of Dr. Gerrish for an advanced policy on the 
part of the college. I am most heartily in sym- 
pathy with his view, and I earnestly hope that 
the good sense of the authorities may respond to 
the wisdom of his position. The one chance of 
continued distinction on the part of Bowdoin is 
in remaining a small college, one of the constant- 
ly decreasing few which still give anything which 
with the utmost stretch of courtesy may be called 
an education. This policy, moreover, is one 
which in the natural progress of educational logic 
is sure to be widely if slowly recognized as in- 
evitable. The massing of students is impossible 
except under the old-fashioned lecture-system ; 
and the futility of lectures in education except 
for occasional use and with students well ad- 
vanced technically is coming to be felt every- 
where. In committing itself to the small-group 
idea, Bowdoin would be putting itself in the van. 
The fashion of the superficial is to treat educa- 
tion as if it were purely a manufacturing busi- 
ness; and heart-breaking foolishness about in- 
crease of numbers, the "poor economy of dupli- 
cating the plant," and the rest of the commercial 
slang which has taken the place of intelligent con- 
sideration of educational issues, is the stock-in- 
trade of the modern "progressive" in education.

BOWDOIN ORIENT 



In an address in New York not so long ago the 
speaker asserted that "the usefulness of a college 
is to be estimated by the number of men it is able 
to graduate ;" which is even less sensible than to 
say that the work of a shoe-factory is to be esti- 
mated by the number of shoes — utterly without 
regard to their quality — it succeeds in turning 
out. Thoughtful men have come to see the folly 
of all this. For the best results a college class 
should certainly never be above a hundred; and 
more important every day is it becoming that we 
have colleges to do what the large universities 
are not doing, — to educate men thoroughly, broad- 
ly, intellectually.

Brunswick, April 29, 1914. 
The Editor of the Bowdoin Orient. 

Dear Sirs — I note that in your issue of April 
28, under "Commencement Week Program," the 
performance of the Dramatic Club is called "Out- 
door Presentation of Scenes from Twelfth 
Night." This phrase will convey to your readers 
a mistaken impression of what the Club intends, 
since the whole plot of the play, in its essential 
developments, will be given. It is the custom of 
•course, to omit from Shakespeare's plays, when 
they are acted at the present day, a number of 
passages not essential for the development of the 
story. Our Club feels it necessary to follow this 
custom in order not to take up too much of our 
Commencement visitors' time; but on the other 
hand much time will be gained from the absence 
<of scene-shifting. On the whole it seems likely 
that no more of Shakespeare's text will be omitted 
than is omitted in Mr. Sothern's performance of 
Hamlet. 

Yours truly, 

G. R. Elliott.

The most important matter discussed at the 
Student Council meeting, Thursday, was that of 
interfraternity baseball. 

I. It was moved to adopt such a league and 
for the list of those ineligible to be made out by 
the varsity captain. It was also moved that the 
secretary notify the fraternities to elect captains 
and managers. 

II. It was moved to have a college dance af- 
ter the last home football game, to be managed 
by a committee of two Seniors, one Junior, one 
Sophomore and one Freshman, elected at a gen- 
eral election ; and also to suggest to the Freshmen 
and Sophomore classes the changing of the Junior 
Assembly to a Sophomore hop. 

III. It was moved to purchase a Bowdoin ban- 
ner to replace the one lost recently. 

IV. It was moved that the president of the 
Council take up the matter of changing the man- 
ager's letter to a fob or watch charm arrange- 
ment. 

V. It was moved to hold a rally on May 22.

BOWDOIN vs TUFTS 

Bowdoin will journey to Medford Thursday, 
and will play Tufts on their home grounds for 
the first time this season. Nothing can be gained 
by a comparison of scores, for Tufts has not yet 
played teams which Bowdoin has met. 

The probable line-up of the two teams follows : 

Bowdoin: Phillips, If; Weatherill, 2b; McEl- 
wee, 3b; Tuttle, rf; Eaton, lb; Chapman, ss; 
Stetson, cf ; LaCasce, c ; Fraser, p. 

Tufts: Stafford, 2b; Lee, 3b; Wescott, cf; 
Volk, ib; Angell, If; Bennett (Capt), c; Arm- 
strong, rf; Proctor, ss ; Adams or Whittaker, p. 



BOWDOIN WINS TRINITY MEET 

With the score 61J/2 to 55^2 in favor of Bow- 
doin in the dual meet with Trinity last Saturday, 
and with Bowdoin needing at least three points to 
win, Floyd and Smith came through with first 




CAPTAIN SMITH 
and third respectively — enough points to win the 
meet for Bowdoin. The final score was 6yy 2 to 
58/2. 

As a whole the meet was close throughout and 
at all times both teams were within a few points 



of each other. Most of the events were closely 
contested. In the 100 yard dash, four men, 
Young of Trinity, and Smith, Fox and Balfe of 
Bowdoin, were separated by inches as they 
crossed the line. The officials were undecided as 
to the place winners, and announced Young, Fox 
and Balfe, in the order named, only to reverse 
their decision in favor of Young, Smith and 
Balfe. In the broad jump, Floyd defeated Hud- 
son by a scant half inch. Hudson also lost out in 
the discus by half an inch, being nosed out by 
Lewis. 

Cutler ran a heady race in the two-mile. Spof- 
ford of Trinity took the lead at the gun and ran 
the first quarter in 61 seconds. Cutler followed 
the Trinity man for six laps, and then took the 
lead, winning by 20 yards. 

At the beginning of the third lap in the mile, 
Crosby was seized with cramps. He was running 
smoothly and showed evidence of reserve until 
then. 

Hudson of Trinity was high point-winner of 
the day with first in both hurdles and the ham- 
mer and second in the shot and broad jump, a 
total of 21. Leadbetter of Bowdoin was second 
with 13. 

Men who took first places will probably be 
awarded their B's, if the athletic council pursues 
its policy of last year in granting a letter for a 
first place. Bowdoin's first place winners were 
Cutler, Smith, McKenney, Leadbetter, White and 
Floyd.

100-Yard Dash.— First, Young, Trinity; sec- 
ond, Smith, Bowdoin; third, Balfe, Bowdoin.

COLBY 8, BOWDOIN 4 



Bowdoin lost to the hard-hitting team from 
Colby on Whittier Field last Saturday by a score 
of 8 to 4. The result of the game was due en- 
tirely to hard, clean hitting on the part of Colby, 
at times when hits meant runs. A great deal of 
praise is due Pitcher-Captain James, not alone for 
his excellent work on the mound, but also for his 
great execution with the stick. It is seldom that 
one sees a pitcher connecting for a home run, a 
three bagger and a single out of four times at bat. 

Bowdoin excelled in fielding, allowing only two 
errors. Colby's infield work was at times ragged, 
and James found himself in several bad holes 
during the afternoon. Other than the home run 
by James, the only feature play was the three- 
base hit into deep right field by Phillips in the 
last of the ninth. A word of praise is due Phillips 
for his clever base running. 

Captain LaCasce continues to be a dangerous 
man to any who attempt base stealing. Only one 
man succeeded in beating his throws to second. 

The game as it occurred: 

First Inning. — Schuster was retired on a 
ground hit to Weatherill. Lowney and Cawley 
both got passes to first. Nutting singled over 
second, scoring Lowney. Fraser tightened up 



and struck out LaFleur and Campbell. 

Phillips lined out a clean hit over second. Stet- 
son was out on a fly to James. Weatherill struck 
out. Phillips stole second and advanced to third 
on a wide throw to second by Lowney. McElwee 
flied out to James. 

Second Inning. — Simpson struck out. Smith 
hit into right field. James was retired on a fly to 
Stetson. Smith was caught in an attempt to steal 
second by a perfect throw by LaCasce. 

Tuttle got a walk and advanced to second on 
Eaton's sacrifice, and stole third. Chapman got 
first on an error by Campbell and Tuttle scored. 
Chapman took second on a passed ball by Lowney. 
LaCasce got first on an error by Smith and Chap- 
man scored. Fraser struck out and Phillips was 
retired on an infield fly to LaFleur. 

Third Inning. — Schuster got a pass and took 
second on Lowney's sacrifice. Cawley hit to Mc- 
Elwee and Nutting to Weatherill. 

Stetson took first on an error by Smith. 
Weatherill played the hit and run and laid down a 
bunt. Stetson advanced from first to third. Mc- 
Elwee was retired by a foul to Lowney. Tuttle 
hit to LaFleur. 

Fourth Inning. — LaFleur got a single through- 
short stop, but was caught off first by a throw 
from LaCasce. Campbell hit to Fraser. Simpson 
connected for a two-bagger into deep right field.

base. James pounded out a three-bagger, scoring 
Smith. Schuster was retired by LaCasce. 

Eaton reached first on an error by Cawley. 
Chapman hit to Campbell and Eaton went to sec- 
ond. LaCasce got a single through short stop, 
scoring Eaton. LaCasce took second. Fraser

CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES STANDING 

Won Lost P.C. 
Bates, 1 o 1.000 

Bowdoin, 1 1 .500 

Colby, 1 1 .500 

U. of M. 02. 000 

The present standing among the Maine colleges 
shows Bates in the lead, Bowdoin and Colby tied 
for second, and the University of Maine last. 
Bates has already beaten Bowdoin in an exhibi- 
tion game, but since that time our men have 
found their batting eye, and their hifting, which 
was then so notoriously weak, has improved won- 
derfully. Their fielding is also much sharper 
and surer than then. 

Fraser has come along excellently since the 
opening of the season, and though he did not win 
the Colby game, still his excellent showing in the 
Maine game should not be forgotten, and fur- 
thermore Maine is conceded to have a better team 
than Colby. Captain LaCasce is catching a 
steady game, and in all the games yet played he 
has shown his opponents that liberties on the 
bases are extremely dangerous. Eaton at first 
has played a splendid fielding game, while 
Weatherill, Chapman and McElwee are constant- 
ly spoiling hits for the other side, besides form- 
ing a formidable trio of sluggers. Goodskey, 
Phillips, Stetson and Tuttle are all fast, sure 
fielders and dangerous men at the bat. 

Altogether it seems at least probable that an- 
other championship will come to Bowdoin this 
spring. It is worse than useless to compare 
scores, for what a team does one day may never 
be repeated again in a season. 

Bowdoin's chances against Bates should not be 
judged by that exhibition game, as the present 
team is a wholly different organization from the 
one which lost then. Nor is it unreasonable to 
suspect that Colby will be unable to duplicate her 
win when she next plays us. In the Maine game 
Bowdoin showed her ability to come from behind 
and bat out a victory when the game seemed ut- 
terly lost. Such a team is never beaten until the 
last man is retired in the ninth, and that kind of 
spirit will win more games than any other one 
quality. 



There will be a College Sing this evening at 7 
o'clock in Memorial Hall. The prize song, "For- 
ward the White," will be sungfor the first time.

College Singing 

It has been said that no college in the coun- 
try has songs which surpass those of Bowdoin. 
In addition to those songs which are endeared to 
us by tradition, there have been written by Bow- 
doin men in the last few years several songs 
which are singularly catchy and spirited, and 
which have words of the sort that make songs live 
through successive generations of college men. 

In other colleges singing is playing a part of 
increasing importance. Some colleges are fam- 
ous as "singing colleges" and recently an inter- 
collegiate singing competition was held in New 
York City. 

We have not taken advantage of every oppor- 
tunity to learn our new songs, but it is hoped that 
before the Ivy Day game the student body will be 



able to sing them in such a way as to make this 
singing a feature of the day. A series of college 
sings has been planned, most of them to be held 
out-doors. In order to have the use of a piano 
and to introduce effectively the prize song "For- 
ward the White," the first sing is to be held in 
Memorial Hall this evening. A large attend- 
ance is desired to give this series an auspicious 
beginning. 



Bounds to Enthusiasm 

The interfraternity baseball series has begun 
and there is every indication that it will serve its 
purpose of furnishing lively occupation for 
spring afternoons and of bringing the men of the 
different groups together in wholesome compe- 
tition. If the restrictions imposed by the list of 
men ineligible for interfraternity baseball posted 
by the baseball captain are carefully observed, 
there need be no fear lest the 'varsity or second 
team will be handicapped. A non-observance of 
the restrictions of this list by any team would be 
a manifest injustice to the other teams in the in- 
terfraternity league. 

One evil which may result from this series was 
shown at the Colby game last Saturday. At the 
interfraternity games the spectators take an ac- 
tive though wordy part in the contest. Good- 
natured "kidding" is indulged in and the etiquette 
of the back lot is closely bordered on. While 
harmless in themselves, these conditions may 
show serious results in the grandstands at inter- 
collegiate contests. 

We have always prided ourselves at Bowdoin 
that the game is played as intensely, yet as clean- 
ly, in the grandstand as on the field. The instinc- 
tive outburst which follows an opponent's error 
has been quickly followed by the hiss of disap- 
proval. Our enthusiasm has been unbounded 
when our team has earned applause and our mag- 
nanimity has been unbounded when the other 
team meets misfortune. 

This is as it should be if we are not to hurt the 
reputation and the character of our sportsman- 
ship by a gradual degeneration into careless and 
unthinking enthusiasm. The danger is not immi- 
nent, yet Saturday's game showed that there is an 
unfortunate tendency in this direction. That it is 
only carelessness is evident to those who know 
our customary spirit. Yet in the eyes of those 
who are quick to make harsh criticisms, one in- 
stance of unsportsmanlike conduct will brand us. 

We need not show less enthusiasm on proper 
occasions but outbursts which come when an op- 
ponent has made an error or which tend to con- 
fuse an opposing player, however unpopular he 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



45 



may be, must be avoided as inconsistent with jour 
ideals of fair play. 



MAINE MEET 

At Lewiston next Saturday Bowdoin will meet 
for the twentieth time the athletes from Bates, 
Colby and Maine in the annual track and field 
meet. Although it is improbable that the record- 
smashing meet of last year will be duplicated, this 
year's contest should, by all available "dope," fur- 
nish the hottest competition seen in this state for 
several years. From a comparison of times and 
distances in the various dual meets which the col- 
leges have taken part in this spring, Maine and 
Colby look particularly good. Bates is more or 
less of an unknown quantity this year as she has 
not been seen in competition. 

Bowdoin has a good fighting chance for second 
place, with her strength centered in the field 
events. White '17 and Boardman '16 have been 
jumping consistently around five feet six and 
seven inches. McCobb of Maine, and Wood of 
Colby seem unable to do better than five three or 
four. McKenney '15 and Sampson '17 look good 
for a first and a second in the pole vault. Lead- 
better '16 has a possible point in the shot put and 
is fairly sure of a second in the hammer. In the 
discus, Leadbetter's throw of 120 feet last Satur- 
day would indicate a sure first in the coming 
meet. Moulton '16 also has a possible point in 
this event. Bowdoin has a hope for a first in the 
broad jump. Floyd '15 has jumped 20 feet 4^ 
inches, — better than any other man in the 
state this year. In the track events, Smith '15, 
Fox '14, McWilliams '15 and Balfe '17 are possi- 
ble point winners. Bowdoin's apparent weakness 
in the sprints and runs can be attributed to excep- 
tionally fast men which Maine and Colby have.' 

Charlie Rice of Maine, the century flier, is sure 
of a first in the 100 yard and 220 yard dashes. 
Bell, Brooks, Towner and Preti of Maine and 
Wenz and Waldron of Colby will have things 
much their own way in the distances. 



INTERFRATERNITY BASEBALL 

At a meeting of the board of managers of inter- 
fraternity baseball, Haggett '16 was elected chair- 
man and Drummond '16, secretary. The nine 
teams were divided in two sections : Division I, 
Bowdoin Club, Delta Kappa Epsilon, Kappa 
Sigma, Theta Delta Chi; Division II, Alpha Delta 
Phi, Beta Theta Pi, Delta Upsilon, Psi Upsilon 
and Zeta Psi. A schedule of sixteen games and 
playing rules were adopted. Each team is to 
play every other team in its division once, the 
winners in each division to play for the cham- 



pionship. All games are to start at 4 o'clock and 
to consist of seven innings. 

The captains and managers are: Alpha Delta

An interesting document illustrative of the his- 
tory of-education at Bowdoin at the middle of the 
last century has recently come to the library 
through the thoughtfulness of Rev. Samuel B. 
Stewart of the Class of 1857. It ' s a bound man- 
uscript of over a hundred pages in the careful 
handwriting of the late N. A. Robbins of that 
class of notes taken by Benjamin B. Foster, Class 
of 1855 on the thirty-seven lectures on chemistry 
given by Professor Parker Cleaveland. The or- 
iginal notes were revised by D. S. Hibbard before 
being copied by his classmate. 

Through the kindness of Hon. George A. 
Emery of Saco, the college library has recently 
secured large photographic reproductions of por- 
traits of Col. Thomas Cutts and his wife. Col. 
Cutts was one of the first Board of Overseers of 
the College and the founder of Saco Academy, 
which later became Thornton Academy. 



Resolutions 

Hall of the Kappa of Psi Upsilon. 

May 8, 1914. 
In the death of Brother Newton Freeman Cur- 
tis of the Class of 1871, the Kappa Chapter of Psi 
Upsilon has lost one of its truest friends and 
brothers. Brother Curtis was a man of high in- 
tellectual attainments and was deeply devoted to 
the pursuit of his chosen profession, that of med- 
icine. Realizing our loss, we have therefore 

Resolved, That we express our deepest sorrow 
at his death and extend our sincere sympathy to 
those bound to him by ties of family and friend- 
ship.

VOL. XLIV 



BRUNSWICK, MAINE, MAY 19, 1914 



NO. 7 



MAINE WINS MEET 

Scoring seven firsts, five seconds and four 
third places, a total of 54 points, Maine easily- 
won the 20th Annual Maine Intercollegiate Meet 
at Lewiston last Saturday. Colby, backed by 
many sporting fans to trim Coach "Crab" Smith's 
outfit, was left far behind Maine in the final sum- 
mary of points, but was an easy second. Bowdoin 
scored 2IJ4 points and landed a safe third posi- 
tion. Bates, the tail ender, lost some possible 
points by switching Nevers from the 440-yard 
dash to the 220. 

As had been expected, fewer records were 
smashed than last year, but Charlie Rice, the 
Powder Point flier, crossed the tape in the trials 
for the 220 four-fifths of a second better than 
the state record. On account of a wind at Rice's 
back his record has been questioned and it is not 
known if it will be allowed to stand. Bailey, the 
Maine giant, threw the hammer 161. 7 feet, better- 
ing his own record by eight feet. Preti broke 
Dick Powers's mark in the two-mile run by 2 1-5 
seconds. 

Bowdoin men who qualified for the afternoon 
were McWilliams in the quarter, Smith in the 
220-yard dash and broad jump, Lewis and Lead- 
better in the discus and hammer, Leadbetter 
in the shot, White and Wood in the high jump, 
and McKenney and Sampson in the pole vault. 
The results of the morning trials found Bowdoin 
with 12 men qualified, Bates with 6, Maine with 
17 and Colby with 14. 

Bowdoin failed to qualify in the trials in the 
100-yard dash, the first event of the afternoon. 

The hottest race of the afternoon was the final 
heat in the 440. Merrill and Bowen of Colby and 
McCobb and St. Onge of Maine were set back 
three yards for false starts. McWilliams of 
Bowdoin got the pole at the first turn and kept the 
lead all the way up the back stretch, only to be 
boxed at the third corner. Waldron of Colby 
crossed the tape winner, followed closely by 
Bowen of Colby. Merrill made the mistake of 
looking over his shoulder in the last 10 yards and 
was beaten out by a matter of inches by McWil- 
liams. 

The race between Nevers and Rice in the 220 
had been looked ahead to as a close event, but 



once the sprint began there was no question as to 
the result. Rice won by several yards lead. 
Small of Bates finished third. Time, 22 seconds 
flat. There is question of Rice's morning record 
of 21 4-5 seconds because of the wind at his back, 
but the 22 seconds record will stand. 

As had been expected, Bowdoin's strength lay 
in the field events. After White had gone out in 
the high jump, Henry Wood came through with a 
tie for third, jumping five feet, six inches. 

Lewis of Bowdoin sprang a surprise in the dis- 
cus by winning with a throw of 1 19.8 feet. Bailey 
was second with 119.7 feet, and Leadbetter third 
with 1 12.6 feet. 

Bailey failed to better his trial distance in the 
hammer throw. He threw the weight over 168 
feet in one try, but fouled and the distance was 
not allowed. 

Cobb of Bates won an easy first in the shot put 
with a heave of 40.17 feet. Leadbetter was sec- 
ond with 37.07 feet, and Ruffner of Maine third 
with 37.05 feet, a scant two-hundredths of an 
inch behind Leadbetter. 

The pole vault, as had been predicted, went to 
McKenney of Bowdoin at 10 feet, 10 inches. 
Mayers of Colby and Sampson of Bowdoin tied 
for second place at 10 feet, 8 inches. 

Maine won seven firsts, five seconds and four 
thirds. Colby won three firsts, five seconds and 
five thirds and divided a second place. Bowdoin 
won two firsts, two seconds, three thirds and split 
a second and a third. Bates won one first, two 
seconds, two thirds and split a third.

BOWDOIN LOSES TO TUFTS 

Bowdoin lost to Tufts at Medford last Thurs- 
day, n to 3. The defeat was due in large meas- 
ure to poor support of Fraser, especially in the 



first inning and to the heavy hitting of the Tufts 
team. 

During the first inning the team went to pieces, 
but after that time settled down and played good 
ball. In the opening session Tufts hit Fraser 
hard and often, while the team gave poor support 
in the field. 

Bowdoin hit Whittaker hard but was unable to 
bunch hits with any degree of success. Bowdoin 
filled the bases twice but was unable to score. In 
the second inning Goodskey singled to right and 
advanced on LaCasce's hit. Phillips drew a pass 
after Fraser had fanned but Stetson and Weath- 
erill were unable to hit safely. Again in the 
sixth, this time with two down, Bowdoin filled 
the bases but was unable to put a run across. 

Except for one high peg, Chapman played a 
fine game at short, while Weatherill was steady 
as a rock after the first inning. 

The loss of the game may be attributed in part 
to lack of sleep the night before. A number of 
men went onto the field with that complaint, — 
evidently a case of too much Boston boat the 
night before. 

The score by innings follows : 

First Inning — Phillips went out on a fly to An- 
gell. Stetson hit to right and stole second. 
Weatherill reached first on an error by Proctor, 
Stetson advancing to third. McElwee was out, 
Whittaker to Volk. Chapman hit, scoring Stet- 
son and Weatherill, and stole second. Eaton 
struck out. 

Stafford was passed and was advanced to sec- 
ond by Lee. Wescott reached first on error by 
Stetson, Stafford taking third and Lee second. 
Volk scored Stafford, Lee and Wescott, scoring 
himself on an error. Angell hit to right but was 
caught off first. Bennett scored on Armstrong's 
hit to right, the latter being caught at second. 
Proctor scored when Whittaker reached first on 
an error by Weatherill. Stafford hit to center, 
scoring Whittaker, reached second and third and 
scored on an error. Lee reached second on an 
error by Chapman. Wescott took first on an error 
by Weatherill, scoring Lee, but was out stealing 
second. 

Second Inning — Goodskey hit to right, advanc- 
ing to second on LaCasce's hit to center. Fraser 
struck out. Phillips was passed, Stetson was out 
on a fly to Wescott. Weatherill was out at first. 

Volk hit to Chapman. Angell was passed and 
stole second. Bennett flied out to Goodskey. 
Armstrong hit to Weatherill. 

Third Inning— McElwee flied to Wescott. 
Chapman struck out. Eaton's fly was caught by 
Bennett.

The Blanket Tax 

With the approaching end of the baseball and 
track seasons, possession of the Blanket Tax 
tickets begins to lose its significance from the fi- 
nancial standpoint. With the annual spring elec- 
tions, at which the officers of the student body are 
elected for the following year, membership in the 
A.S.B.C, which possession of the t^kets signi- 
fies, takes on new importance. To many the right 
to vote at these elections is lost for various rea- 
sons. To some it is lost because they were utter- 
ly unable to pay the Blanket Tax. To many oth- 
ers it is lost because while they were able to pay, 
they lacked that appreciation of the meaning of 
loyalty which in most college men is ingrained 
and needs no stimulus. 

Many more men were compelled to ask for the 



privilege of paying the tax at a later and more 
convenient date. These men who have been 
granted ''extensions" are bound by no written 
promise to pay, yet the application for an "exten- 
sion" is understood by the applicant and the 
Board of Managers to signify an intent to pay. 
In making its expenditures, the Board figures in 
its assets the amount to be received from these 
men. It is evident that failure to pay on the part 
of men holding "extensions" will not only consti- 
tute the breaking of an unwritten agreement, but 
will cut off revenue which the Board of Managers 
needs to carry on its work. 

The student body as a whole has been loyal in 
its support of the Blanket Tax and the tax has 
been able to shoulder the heavy task of attempt- 
ing to wipe out large deficits in football and base- 
ball. Because of the inclement weather of the 
spring months, it is probable that two of the 
major sports have met losses which it will be im- 
possible for them to make up from their own re- 
sources. The support of every man who has been 
compelled to defer payment of the Blanket Tax 
is needed if these deficits are to be met and if the 
constituent organizations of the A.S.B.C. are to 
be freed from the handicap of debt. 



NEW ENGLAND MEET 

The New England intercollegiate meet will be 
held in the Harvard stadium at Cambridge next 
Friday and Saturday, May 22 and 23. Trials will 
be Friday and finals Saturday. 

Bowdoin men who will probably go are Lewis 
and Leadbetter in the weights and McKenney in 
the pole vault. 

The colleges represented in this meet are Am- 
herst, Bates, Bowdoin, Brown, Colby, Dartmouth, 
Holy Cross, Massachusetts Institute of Technol- 
ogy, Trinity, Tufts, Maine, Vermont, Wesleyan, 
Williams and Worcester Tech. 

Dartmouth is conceded to have the strongest 
team, while Tech and Maine are thought to fig- 
ure strongly for second and third places. 



fraternity baseball 

Bowdoin Club, 13 ; Theta Delts, 5. 
Only three of the four games scheduled to be 
played this week, came off. Monday the Bowdoin 
Club walloped the T. D.'s, 13-5. Verrill, who 
pitched for the Bowdoin Club, was hit in the head 
by a pitched ball, and was stunned for a while. 
In the next inning four runs were scored off him, 
but during the remainder of the game he tight- 
ened up. The heavy hitting of J. Boothbay '17 
featured the game. The score : 
Bowdoin Club, 4 o 1 1 7 o — 13

THIS WEEK'S GAMES 

Bowdoin and Maine play their second game in 
the state baseball series tomorrow at Orono. In 
the first game, Bowdoin won after a hard extra 
inning struggle, in which Driscoll, Maine's star 
pitcher, was batted out of the box. 

The second game with Tufts will be played 
Saturday in Brunswick instead of in Portland, as 
originally scheduled. 



CHANGES IN COURSES 

Physics 1 and 2. 

Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 8.30. Three 
hours per week throughout the year. Text-book, 
Kimball's College Physics. Courses 1 and 2 are 
given without laboratory work and are intended 
for those desiring a general knowledge of Physics 
such as an educated man may be supposed to 
have, or as preliminary to further study in case 



of no or unsatisfactory secondary school courses. 
Credit for 1 and 2 will not be given for those en- 
tering with Physics. 
Physics 5 and 4. 

Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 1.30 to 3.30.' 
Six hours per week throughout the year. Me- 
chanics. Applied Mechanics, the elements of 
Thermo Dynamics and Heat Engines. Elective 
for those who have had satisfactory secondary 
school instruction, or have completed I and 2. 
Freshman Mathematics must be taken with 3 and 
4 or have been previously taken. 3 and 4 are in- 
tended to furnish a foundation for more ad- 
vanced study and should be considered prerequis- 
ite to it; but during the period of establishment 
of the new courses this will not be insisted upon. 
In 3 and 4 the time will be divided between con- 
ferences and laboratory according to the require- 
ments of the student. 
Physics 5 and 6. 

Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 1.30 to 3.30. 
Six hours per week throughout the year. Text, 
Magnetism and Electricity, Brook & Poyser. In 
this course the student will be made familiar with 
all ordinary electrical phenomena and will also 
learn to make all ordinary electrical measure- 
ments used in electrical engineering. The time 
will be divided between conferences and labora- 
tory. 
Physics 7 and 8. 

Given in alternation with 5 and 6 and at the 
same hours. 
Heat and Light. 

7 and 8 are of the same general character and 
standard as 5 and 6. It is very desirable that 
students taking courses in advanced Physics 
should also elect courses in Mathematics, as 
thereby their progress will be greatly facilitated. 

The courses in Greek will be the same for the 
first semester, i. e., Greek 1, 3, 5, Greek Literature 
7, and Greek A (to a class of 3 or more). All 
second semester courses will be omitted, except 
Greek B, the elementary course, if begun in the 
first semester, will continue through the year. 



ALEXANDER SPEAKING 

The trials for the Alexander Prize Speaking 
will be held tomorrow afternoon and evening in 
Memorial Hall. The representatives chosen from 
1917 as a result of the balloting Saturday are 
Chapman, Creeden, Eaton, Miller, Moran, Phil- 
lips, Ross, Shumway, Webber, Willey. The list 
of speakers from 1915 and 1916 has already been 
published in the Orient. This year, any mem- 
ber of the Freshman, Sophomore or Junior Class, 
not among the regularly selected representatives

SONNET ON PEARY'S SLEDGE 

George Edward Woodberry, Litt.D., LL.D., 
who delivered the Annie Talbot Cole lectures 
here last year, and who is recognized as one of 
the leading literary critics, has written the fol- 
lowing sonnet on the sledge which Peary took to 
the pole and which is now in the library. 

peary's sledge. 
Rude sledge, that shalt the mortal relic be, 
When he is nameless dust, of that strong soul 
Who won the great adventure of the Pole, 
I read the lineaments of fate in thee. 
Thou art the image of necessity, 
Framed of denial, the wise will's control, — 
"Least will do most," — "Spare all and win the 

whole," 
Thou sayest, — "Art, life, are brothers unto me." 

So was that soul accoutred, in and out ; 

So stood he on the gray roof of the world, 

■Gazing on heavens he lifted up from earth ; 

Illimitable chaos round about 

Knelt to his flag ; victor, beneath him whirled 

Earth's axis ; and within him was man's mirth.

TRACK RALLY 



Last Friday night a rally was held in Memorial 
Hall for the purpose of getting the students en- 
thusiastic over the Maine Intercollegiates. As 
one of the speakers said, it seemed hardly neces- 
sary; they already had the enthusiasm. One of 
the features of the entertainment was the exhibi- 
tion of the big Bowdoin banner which had just 
been purchased for the purpose of taking it to 
Lewiston on the next day. 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



55 



Professor Files spoke on enthusiasm ; Captain 
Smith '15 prophesied a better showing than last 
year; Professor Nixon refused to prophesy, but 
expressed himself as very hopeful ; Coach Jack 
Magee complimented the fellows on the backing 
they had given the teams so far, and urged them 
to give the team the best of support on the next 
day ; Dr. Whittier also urged the student body to 
travel to Lewiston in a body and to stand back of 
the team through thick and thin. 

The new and old songs were all given a try-out 
and the fellows ran over all the cheers to get their 
throats in condition. Leigh '14 presided. 



Last year Faulkner was high man with five points 
in the broad jump. 



SIZE OF CLASSES 



The Hartford Times makes the following edi- 
torial comment on the discussion as to the rela- 
tive size of Bowdoin's classes : 

Bowdoin, like Trinity, Wesleyan, Dartmouth, 
Amherst, Williams and possibly one or two other 
New England colleges, has apparently stiffened 
its determination to remain a small college and a 
good one, raising its standards as best it may, but 
never lowering them for the sake of increasing 
its student population. The sentiment of the 
stronger element among its. alumni is probably 
voiced with accuracy by Professor F. H. Gerrish 
'66 of Portland, Me., who says Bowdoin "should 
have limited classes chosen rigidly from a large 
number of applicants." Professor Arlo Bates '76 
says: "In committing itself to the small group 
idea, Bowdoin would be putting itself in the van. 
The fashion of the superficial is to treat educa- 
tion as if it were purely a manufacturing busi- 
ness." To guard against the superficial, which is 
usually popular, is one of the most difficult tasks 
of the smaller and usually none-too-rich college, 
but a majority of the New England colleges are 
doing it to a commendable degree. 



NAMES FOR WING CUP 

The names of McKenney '15 and Alton Lewis 
'15 will be engraved on the Henry A. Wing cup, 
which was recently presented to the College by 
Mrs. Grace Wing of Auburn in memory of her 
husband, Colonel Henry A. Wing of the class of 
1880. The name of Bowdoin's high point winner 
in the Maine Intercollegiates is annually en- 
graved on this cup. In case of a tie for the high- 
est number of points, all the men in the tie are 
given the honor. 

McKenney and Lewis each scored five points, 
first in the pole vault and discus, respectively. 
This is the second time that Lewis has tied for 
high point winner. In 1912 he won the hammer 
throw, Haskell '13 winning the 440-yard dash. 



SECOND TEAM DEFEATS HEBRON 

The Bowdoin Second team journied to Hebron 
Wednesday and there defeated the crack Hebron 
nine, 4-2. Rawson pitched well for Bowdoin and 
allowed only five clean hits. In the sixth a string 
of hits bunched together by the Bowdoin team 
netted three runs and cinched the game. The 
score : 

Bowdoin, 00001300 & — 4 

Hebron, 01000100 — 2 



Cluo anD Council sheetings 

At a meeting of the Athletic Council Friday 
night track B's were awarded to Moulton '16, 
White '17, Floyd '15 and Cutler ' 15, for first 
places in the Tech or Trinity meets. It was voted 
to engage Tom Bragg of Bangor as assistant foot- 
ball coach for three weeks during the football 
season. The council gave its assent to a foot- 
ball game between the second team and West- 
brook Seminary Sept. 26. 

The Freshman class met in Banister Hall last 
Friday to arrange for the annual Freshman ban- 
quet. It was voted that the banquet be a "dry" 
one. A committee consisting of Flynt, Cormack 
and Creeden was elected to determine the date of 
the banquet and to attend to all details. 



fl>n t&e Campus 

The second baseball team closes its schedule 
with Westbrook Seminary at Portland, June 3. 

The date on which the Hawthorne prize stories 
will be due has been postponed to Saturday, May 
30. 

Weston '12, White '12, Kimball '07, A. L. Rob- 
inson '08, H. L. Robinson '11 and Willet ex-'i$ 
were on the campus last week. 

It is said "Farmer" Kern '12 will enter the 
Medical School next fall. He will be eligible to 
play on the football team, as he has played but 
three of the four years allowed. 

Tonight there will be a College Sing in Me- 
morial Hall at 7. The College orchestra will 
play. It is hoped with fair weather to hold the 
sings outdoors towards the end of the week. 

The new Bowdoin banner was much in evi- 
dence at the rally Friday night and at the track 
meet Saturday. It is made of white cloth with 
black block letters, and was bought by vote of the 
Student Council to replace the one lost last year. 

The work of compiling the Y.M.C.A. Hand-

book for next year has begun. Since this book is 
a student book and is designed particularly to 
furnish the entering class with information about 
student affairs, suggestions as to matter which 
may well be included or left out will be gladly re- 
ceived. These suggestions may be handed to 
MacCormick '15. 

Circulars announcing the annual Student Con- 
ference at Northfield, Mass., have been received. 
The conference will be held this year from June 
19 to June 28 and as usual will attract hundreds 
of students from all parts of the country. It is 
hoped that Bowdoin will be well represented as 
there are several men now in College who attend- 
ed last year and will undoubtedly go again. 

Plans are now being made for Ivy Day. Lov- 
ell's Orchestra of 20 pieces has been engaged for 
an order of thirty dances and the orders are of 
an unique design, at present a secret. The fra- 
ternity booth system, similar to that used at the 
Junior Assembly, has been adopted. The com- 
mittee in charge is composed of McWilliams '15, 
chairman, MacDonald '15, Floyd '15, Perkins '15 
and Austin '15.

'25. — At a recent sale of the political corres- 
pondence of George N. Sanders, leader of the 
"Young Democracy" from 1845 t0 1861, three let- 
ters written him by Nathaniel Hawthorne were 
sold, one for $43 and two for $35 each. 

'62. — "Through Realms of Song," a volume of 
191 sonnets by Professor Isaac Bassett Choate, is 
soon to appear from the press. 

'76. — After a preliminary survey of the famine 
districts of the Chinese provinces of Anhui and 
Kiangsu in China, Charles D. Jameson, who has 
been consulting engineer to the Chinese govern- 
ment since 191 1, has declared that annual floods 
and subsequent famines can be prevented. By 
the use of dikes and deepened river channels he 
plans to reclaim and make productive thousands 
of acres of waste land and give a means of sub-' 
sistence to hundreds of thousands of people who 
are little better than paupers. To finance Mr. 
Jameson's measures China has agreed to sell 
bonds to the amount of $20,000,000. A board of 
five engineers is to go from this country to make 
a more intensive study of the grounds. The work 
as at present planned will take six or seven years. 

'yy. — Rear Admiral Robert E. Peary has re- 
cently been quoted as saying that in five years' 
time aeroplanes will circle the poles of the earth 
and that like trips around the world will be com- 
mon ventures. 

'13. — Miss Elizabeth Dutcher, a social worker, 
and Paul H. Douglas, who at present holds the 
Charles Carroll Everett Scholarship, taking grad- 
uate work in Economics at Columbia University, 
were arrested in New York on May 12 on the 
charge of blocking the traffic while making 
speeches to the employees of a department store 
on West Forty-Third Street. The police testified 
that there were 500 persons in front of the store 
when they tried to get them to disperse and that 
Miss Dutcher refused to move when told to do so. 
Miss Dutcher testified that she was trying to or- 
ganize the clerks of department stores so that 
they would help to enforce the new 54 hours a 
week law and was emphatic in saying that there 
was no crowd on the sidewalk. After a postpone- 
ment while Douglas was at lunch, another while 
the presiding magistrate went to lunch, and an- 
other while Douglas went to a recitation, the re- 
spondents were fined $10 each.

TUFTS 9, BOWDOIN 3 



An unlucky seventh lost the Tufts game on 
Whittier Field Saturday. With the exception of 
the seventh, the game was close and hard fought, 
but in that inning a combination of five errors, 
three hits and a base on balls gave Tufts six runs. 
Bowdoin was unable to hit Whittaker with any 
degree of success, the nine singles being well 
scattered. During the first part of the game, 
Bowdoin worked the bunting game to advantage, 
successful bunts or sacrifice hits figuring in all 
three runs. 

The scoring began in the second, when Chap- 
man singled to center, and took second on Tut- 
tle's hit. Eaton attempted to sacrifice but was 
safe when Whittaker fumbled the ball. McElwee 
swung hard, but the ball dropped in front of the 
plate and Bennett tagged Chapman. LaCasce and 
Tuttle worked a perfect squeeze play. Knight 
ended the inning with a ground ball to Roach. 

In the next inning Phillips singled down the 
right field foul line, took third on Stetson's sac- 
rifice, and scored on Volk's poor peg to third. 

Tufts evened it up in the fifth and had men on 
second and third with only one down when Chap- 



man pulled off an unassisted double play. Arm- 
strong and Leland singled. Marsyzinki ran for 
Armstrong. Both Marsyzinki and Leland scored 
on Whittaker's single, after Roach had gone out. 
Wescott got on through Chapman's error. Wes- 
cott took second on the throw in. Chapman made 
a shoestring catch of Proctor's lineup and tagged 
Wescott off of second. 

Tufts scored again in the sixth, and then six 
times in the seventh. Bowdoin had another op- 
portunity to score in the eighth when Weatherill 
reached second safely, but he was caught at 
the plate on an attempt to score from second on 
Eaton's single to center field. McElwee ended 
the inning with a line drive to Proctor.

MAINE 3, BOWDOIN 1 



Bowdoin was unable to hit Driscoll safely at 
Maine last Wednesday, while combinations of 
hits and errors scored three runs for Maine, — 
enough to win. Bowdoin's lone tally came in the 
fifth on McElwee's homer over Cobb's head. 
Again errors were responsible for Bowdoin's de- 
feat, four of the eight errors being responsible 
for two of Maine's three runs. 

Bowdoin had a good opportunity to score in the 
third, when McElwee reached first through Ba- 
ker's error and then stole second, but Driscoll 
struck out LaCasce and Fraser and Phillips drove 
a fly to Pendleton. Again in the seventh, Bow- 
doin had a man on base when Chapman singled 
after Weatherill had gone out. Tuttle fanned 
and Eaton hit to Driscoll, retiring the side. With 
the exception of the third, fifth and seventh, 
Bowdoin failed to get a man on. 

Maine's first run was a clean one. Abbott sin- 
gled and took second on the hit and run play with 
Tilman. Chase sacrificed and Abbott came home 
on Pendleton's out. In the last of the fifth with 
two out, Cobb reached first on Stetson's error and 
stole second. Hackett was safe at first on Chap- 
man's error and stole second, while Cobb came 
home. In the sixth, errors by Stetson and Fraser 
put Abbott on second. Gilman sacrificed, McEl- 
wee to Eaton, and Abbott scored on Chase's sac- 
rifice fly to Tuttle.

DARTMOUTH WINS N.E. MEET 
For the third successive year Dartmouth won 
the New England track intercollegiates at Cam- 
bridge, Saturday, by a score of 57J/2, twice that 
of their nearest competitor. Maine won second 
with 28 points after a close contest with M. I. T., 
third with 26 5-6 points. Colby got 15, Bowdoin 
6, and Bates failed to score a man. Rice and 
Bailey of Maine were the stars, the latter making 
a new record in the hammer of 164 feet, 8% 
inches. For Bowdoin, three men qualified in four 
events on Friday. On Saturday, Leadbetter won 
two thirds, in the hammer with 136 feet, 5 inches 
and in the discus with 124 feet, 3J/2 inches. Mc- 
Kenney tied for second with two other men in the 
pole vault at 11 feet, making a total of 6 points. 
Crosby, who had qualified in the 880, barely 
missed fourth on Saturday.

Up to a late hour before going to press the 
Orient was unable to secure Bowdoin's probable 
line-up in these three games. It is thought that a 
number of important changes will be made. 



N.E. TENNIS INTERCOLLEGIATES 

Bowdoin failed to qualify any men in the pre- 
liminary rounds of the New England Intercolle- 
giate Tennis Tournament held at Longwood last 
week. Larrabee '16 was beaten by Rowell of 
Wesleyan 6-0, and 6-1. Flynt '17 lost to Richards 
of Wesleyan 6-0, and 6-4. 

The doubles were played Tuesday and Flynt 
'17 and Ladd '16 were defeated in a closely played 
match with the Tech men, Stewart and Wood- 
bridge. The score in the doubles was 6-1, 3-6, 
6-2. 

Amherst and Trinity were the final winners, 
Cady of Amherst beating out his team-mate 
Shumway in the singles; while Burgwin and Ed- 
sell of Trinity defeated Rowell and Richards of 
Wesleyan in the doubles. 



MAINE INTERCOLLEGIATES 

The Maine Intercollegiates are now being held 
at Waterville. It is expected that Eaton '15 and 
Larrabee '16 will play today in the singles. The 
men who are playing the doubles are : Eaton and 
Larrabee; Ladd and Flynt. 



INTERSCHOLASTIC TOURNAMENT 

Purington of Edward Little beat out Owen of 
Portland, and won the singles championship in 
the Interscholastic Tournament here last Satur- 
day. The score was 6-0, 6-1. 

Hebron won the doubles by defeating West- 
brook Seminary 6-4, and 6-4. 

The following schools were represented : Ab- 
bott, Freeport, Portland, Hebron, Westbrook 
Seminary, Maine Central Institute, Lewiston and 
Edward Little. 



INTERFRATERNITY BASEBALL

BETA THETA PI-PSI UPSILON. 

The game between the Betas and Psi U's. was 
called in the first of the fifth inning last Wednes- 
day when Wilson broke his ankle. No score had 
been made by either side. The batteries were: 
Hall and Carll; Wilson and Wing. 

DELTA KAPPA EPSILON-ZETA PSI. 

The game between the Dekes and Zetes due to 
have been played last Thursday, was postponed. 
It will probably be played Friday. 



INTERSCHOLASTIC BASEBALL 

With the season of the Bowdoin Interscholas- 
tic Baseball League drawing near its close, 
Brunswick High and Leavitt Institute appear the 
most logical candidates to lead their respective 
divisions. Brunswick High has a well-balanced 
aggregation, and has developed a quality of team 
work rarely seen in high school baseball. Much 
the same is true of Leavitt Institute, and the 
contest between these two teams for the state 
championship should be of more than common 
calibre. 



TRACK CLUB 

At a meeting of the track men just before the 
Trinity meet the need of an association of A.B.A. 
men was discussed. This club would meet at va- 
rious times during the year and would serve to 
keep up an interest in track activities, especially 
during the winter months. Its members could get 
a line on track material in fitting schools and 
present the advantages of the College to such 
men as showed promise. A committee consisting 
of Koughan '15 chairman, McWilliams '15, Floyd 
'15 and L. Donahue '14 was appointed to draw up 
a constitution and set of by-laws. This commit- 
tee will report at a later meeting, probably at the 
banquet which is to be held at New Meadows Inn 
this week. 



DRAMATIC CLUB 

The Bowdoin Dramatic Club presents its at- 
ti action "The Marriage of Kitty" next Thursday 
evening in Pythian Hall, Portland. The week 
following, June 4, the same play will be pro- 
duced in Brunswick.

Songs Old and New 

The communication printed in another column 
with regard to a possible successor to "Bowdoin 
Beata" as the Bowdoin song, comes at a singular- 
ly appropriate time. Two successful College 
Sings have recently been held and a great deal of 
interest is being shown by the student body in the 
new songs. The prize song, "Forward the 
White," has been introduced and met with instant 
success, while the other songs of recent years 
are being sung more than ever before. 

There is little doubt that if any song is to take 
the place of "Bowdoin Beata," it will be the song 
"Rise, Sons of Bowdoin." This song has become 
immensely popular with the student body, and 
through being sung by the Glee Club, it has be- 
come known in some degree to the alumni. The 



song has a swing which makes it easy to sing and 
that solidarity and depth of thought which the 
college song should have to endure. Many have 
felt that it contains a true expression of Bowdoin 
ideals, at the same time possessing a tune which 
belongs to no other college, but which will distin- 
guish it as a song of Bowdoin. Yet while they 
recognize how nearly the song approaches the 
ideal college song, they also realize the value of 
the traditions which endear "Bowdoin Beata" to 
Bowdoin men, particularly those of the last two 
decades. These traditions cannot be lightly set 
aside, nor is it the wish of anybody to do this. 
Yet there is no reason why the wealth of tradi- 
tions from the past should take anything from 
future traditions, nor is it necessary to tear down 
the former for the creation of the latter. "Bow- 
doin Beata" will continue to live and no other 
song will ever take its place completely in the 
hearts of the present alumni. A gradual intro- 
duction of the younger song, however, is possi- 
ble. If the alumni become SLimciently familiar 
with it, it is probable that it will some day be ac- 
companied by the bareing of heads which is a 
part of the singing of "Bowdoin Beata." In the 
meantime, let us learn this song and the other' 
new songs. The memory of the evenings when 
the student body sat on the steps of the Art Build- 
ing and sang Bowdoin songs, old and new, will 
be very pleasant ones, while the practical benefit 
to be derived cannot be estimated. 



The Baseball Slump 

That the baseball team is not playing in the 
form which mid-season should bring is quite ap- 
parent. It is also apparent that with the state 
series half finished the team must win three 
straight games to tie with Bates for the pennant. 
The Bates team has played wonderfully consis- 
tent baseball, and to tie them for the champion- 
ship is no mean achievement. The student body 
since the first of the season has set its heart on 
an undisputed title, yet with the fading of this 
possibility there is no need for a fading of cham- 
pionship enthusiasm. Appeals to our spirit seem 
superfluous, yet we feel that at this time appeals 
to our faith are appropriate. We have found in 
the past that our teams have a tendency to "come 
through," in a large measure because of the lift- 
ing power of the student body's enthusiasm. If 
we enter the last half of the pennant race with 
the feeling that the late slump is only temporary, 
it will be a tremendous aid in helping the team to 
go on the field with a feeling of confidence which 
will win games.

COMMUNICATION 

The Editor of the Orient: 

Dear Sir: — A recent number of the Orient 
contained the welcome news that a new collection 
of Bowdoin songs was being compiled by Mr. 
Wass; and the issue of May 12 contains an ex- 
cellent, though short, editorial on College Sing- 
ing. One might well wish that Bowdoin would 
be classed as a "singing college;" her songs are, 
as you say, unsurpassed, and ought to be put to 
greater use, and receive more attention than has 
been the case. 

One naturally thinks in this connection of the 
song of Bowdoin College. Some of our fondest 
memories are perhaps interwoven with the strains 
of Bowdoin Beata. We have sung it triumphant- 
ly in the hour of victory; and when the fates 
were against us we have still used the familiar 
words to proclaim our loyalty even in defeat. 
But is Bowdoin Beata the best song we have ; the 
best, I mean, to be used as the expression of our 
love and reverence for the College? If so, well 
and good; but if it is not, then let us use another, 
for tradition must not be valued above merit. 

As a matter of fact, Bowdoin Beata is not a 
very old song, — it dates from '95 or '96 — and the 
custom of standing uncovered while it is being 
sung, is very much more recent. To substitute a 
better song — providing we have one — would not 
do violence to any long-standing tradition. I ven- 
ture to suggest that steps be taken to use as the 
College song Dean Sills's Rise, Sons of Bozvdoin. 
In thought and in expression this is far superior 
to Bozvdoin Beata; it is a sounder presentation of 
our ideals and aspirations ; it has a dignity and 
beauty which make it in every way worthy of be- 
ing the hymn of praise of Bowdoin College. 
Moreover it has the additional advantage of hav- 
ing a musical setting of its own — whereas the 
tune of Bozvdoin Beata is used elsewhere. 

I would be glad, Mr. Editor, if in your columns 
others, better qualified than myself to judge of 
such matters, would give their views as to what 
song Bowdoin men should treat as the expression 
of loyalty and affection to our Alma Mater. 
Sincerely yours, 

Alfred H. Sweet. 
Cambridge, Mass.,

CORRECTION 

The name of Leadbetter '16 will be engraved 
on the Wing Cup, instead of those of Lewis '15 
and McKenney '15, as was stated in last week's 
Orient. Leadbetter won second in both the shot 
and the hammer and third in the discus, — a total 



of seven points. The name of Bowdoin's highest 
point-winner in the Maine Intercollegiate Track 
Meet is engraved on the cup each year. 



Y.M.C.A. CABINET CHOSEN 

The heads of departments and the chairmen of 
committees for the Y.M.C.A. work next year 
have been chosen, and it is probable that a joint 
meeting of the old and new cabinets will be held 
at New Meadows Inn on Monday, June 1. The 
heads of the four departments are as follows: 
administrative, McWilliams '15; religious educa- 
tion, Winter '16; campus service, Foster '16; 
community service, Bacon '15. The chairmen 
and sub-chairmen of the respective committees 
are as follows: membership, West '15 and Cutler 
'15; room, Sampson '17; press, Crehore '17; Bible 
study, Rawson '16; mission study, Crossman '16; 
meetings, Hescock '16; social, Koughan '15 and! 
Sayward '16; Hiwale, Churchill '16 and McKin- 
non '15; social service, Rollins '15 and Marston 
'tyi English for foreigners, McConaughy '17 and 
Canney '16; deputation, Chapman '17 and Stone 
'17; church relations, Moran '17 and Morrison 
'15. The Freshman religious committee will be 
appointed next fall. 

The plans for Bible study are not yet com- 
pleted but three groups will be held for Fresh- 
men, Sophomores and the two upper classes. The 
courses with their leaders will be announced later.. 



EXTRACTS FROM LIBRARIAN'S REPORT 

No one is better aware than the writer of how 
little of general interest is contained in a series 
of annual reports which are frankly statistical 
and descriptive of local conditions. It was there- 
fore, an agreeable surprise to find ours among the 
170 libraries whose reports are indexed in a re- 
cent publication of the American Library Asso- 
ciation, designed as a key for workers in library 
science to whatever of valuable information may 
be locked up in these rather unattractive houses. 
In fact only the reports of six universities and 
one college are included in this somewhat extend- 
ed and carefully selected list. 
gifts. 

Foremost among the gifts of the year must be 
noted the complete works of our distinguished 
alumna, Kate Douglas Wiggin, who received the 
doctorate of letters from Bowdoin in 1904. This 
collection of over eighty volumes is especially in- 
teresting as containing copies of the various edi- 
tions issued in this country and abroad, the nu- 
merous translations into French, German, Polish, 
Danish, Dutch, Swedish, Roumanian, Japanese, 
portly volumes in Braille prepared for the use of

the blind and the manuscript of "Daughters of 
Zion." Mrs. Riggs has spared no pains or ex- 
pense to obtain some of the rarer issues now out 
of print and not available through the ordinary 
channels. It is proposed to place this unique col- 
lection in a case of its own in the Alumni Room, 
:as a memorial of one who more happily and 
truthfully than any other living author has de- 
picted rural life in Maine and at the same time by 
the grace and charm and brightness of her writ- 
ings won so high a place in American literature. 

It is the privilege as well as the duty of the li- 
brary of a small college to render personal assis- 
tance more freely and promptly. than is practica- 
ble either in a university or a large public library, 
where patrons are numbered by thousands rather 
than by hundreds. Questions that would seem 
unworthy of utterance in a thronged and impos- 
ing interior like Bates Hall in the Boston Public 
Library are gladly heard at our charging desk in 
Hubbard Hall. Our attendants are trained not to 
.•smile even when the works of ibid, can not be 
found in the card catalogue. As a rule the per- 
son in charge attends at once to any inquiry for 
information or appeal for bibliographical assis- 
tance. Nevertheless, it is found, after several 
years of experience with college students that 
much information is not given and much assis- 
tance is not rendered because the questions are 
asked at the wrong time or of the wrong person. 
It should be remembered by those who use the 
library that while its doors are open for readers 
12 hours each week day in term time, no refer- 
ence work is done during the hour from 12.30 to 
1.30 p. m. when the janitor is in charge, nor dur- 
ing the evening hours or on Sundays when stu- 
dent assistants are at the desk. To provide for 
questions that may arise at those times and also 
for the registration of any complaints which the 
maker desires to be anonymous, a special volume 
has been properly lettered and placed on the case 
■of Jiew books at the southwest angle of the en- 
trance hall. It is intended to answer promptly in- 
quiries placed there. It is hoped that this method, 
by no means a novel one, may add somewhat to 
the helpfulness and efficiency of the library. 

PHI CHI BANQUET 

Last Monday, May 18, the Gamma Gamma 
Chapter of the Phi Chi Medical Society held its 
annual banquet at the Lafayette in Portland. Dr. 
"W. B. Moulton acted as toastmaster. The speak- 
ers were Dr. Walter E. Tobie, Dr. Alfred King, 
Dr. Cram, Dr. Whittier, Dr. Edward J. McDon- 
ough, Dr. James A. Spalding, Dr. Roland B. 
Moore, Dr. Herbert F. Twitchell. 



ALPHA KAPPA KAPPA BANQUET 

Theta Chapter of Alpha Kappa Kappa held its 
annual banquet and installation of officers at 
Riverton Friday evening. 

Dr. Herbert M. Larrabee of Tewkesbury, 
Mass., a prominent neurologist, the principal 
speaker of the evening, gave a very interesting 
paper on the transplantation and repair of nerves. 

Dr. George Cook of Concord, Mass., the Grand 
President of the national fraternity, gave some 
very interesting remarks. Several Portland phy- 
sicians gave short addresses on various subjects. 
There were about fifty present. 



HARVARD SCHOLARSHIP APPOINTMENTS 

Six Bowdoin men are represented among those 
who receive fellowship and scholarship appoint- 
ments from Harvard University for the year

follow : 

A Thayer Scholarship : Alfred Wandtke, 
Bowdoin '10. 

A Whiting Fellowship : Ellison Smullen Pur- 
ington, Bowdoin '12. 

An Austin Scholarship : Sturgis Elleno Leav- 
itt, Bowdoin 'o8_

OLlub ano Council Sheetings 

The Athletic Council has awarded the follow- 
ing track letters: Captain Smith '15, Leadbetter 
'16, H. A. Lewis '15 and Sampson '17. With the 
four B's awarded at a previous meeting, this 
makes a total of eight won this year. 

The Sophomore class at a meeting Friday ex- 
pressed itself in favor of the proposal of a Soph- 
omore hop in place of the Junior Assembly. A 
committee was appointed to report on a class field 
day. 

At a recent meeting of the Debating Council 
tentative resolutions were passed in favor of an- 
other triangular debating league. The two-year 
agreement with Hamilton and Wesleyan expired 
with this year's debates. Officers were elected 
as follows: Talbot '15, president: Tackaberry 
'15, vice-president; Keegan '15, secretary; Bacon 
'15, manager-treasurer. A medal committee to

report to the council a set of rules governing the 
award of medals was appointed as follows : 
chairman, Simpson '14, Leigh '14, McKenney 
'15. A committee composed of Tackaberry '15, 
chairman, Burns '14 and Keegan '15 was ap- 
pointed to report on a banquet for the debaters. 
Reports submitted at the meeting show good 
prospects for another year. The two leaders, 
Gage '14 and Leigh '14 are the only men lost. 
Interest has been shown in the work, a large num- 
ber of candidates reported for the teams, and 
large audiences witnessed the debates. 

At a meeting of the Freshman class last Friday 
Shumway was elected toastmaster for the class 
banquet May 29. Speakers have been appointed, 
one from each fraternity, as follows : Martell, 
Next Year; McConaughy, Alma Mater; Miller, 
The Class; Burleigh, When Greek Meets Greek; 
Bond, Athletics; Oliver, Fraternities; Ross, 
Opening Address ; J. Boothby, The Ladies ; Blan-

A recent acquisition to the collection of letters 
in the Library is a valuable letter written by Na- 
thaniel Hawthorne '25, to G. N. Sanders. It is 
dated at the U. S. Consulate, Liverpool, July 1, 
1854 and refers to Franklin Pierce, also to an at- 
tack of whooping-cough in his family. The Haw- 
thorne letters are now scarce and interesting and 
the Library is fortunate in obtaining this one. 

Professor I. B. Choate '62 has made the Li- 
brary an important gift, consisting of eighty- 
seven illustrated volumes of current literature.

"THE MARRIAGE OF KITTY"— IVY EVE 

The appearance of the Masque and Gown at 
the Cumberland Theatre last evening attracted a 
large audience, the club presenting Cosmo Gor- 
don-Lenox's vivacious farce "The Marriage of 
Kitty," in which Marie Tempest scored one of 
her greatest successes. The dialogue was witty, 
the situations full of surprises, and more espe- 
cially the play was well adapted to a cast com- 
posed of young men. 

The character of Kitty, the title role, was 
played convincingly by Melloon '15. His realistic 
air of coquetry made his impersonation tellingly 
feminine. Baxter '16 made an exotic Madame 
de Seminano, while Stride '17 as the French 
maid, complimented admirably the other "women" 
of the cast. The cast of characters follows: 

Hampden Ireland '16 

Norbury Fuller '16 

Rosalie Stride '17

THE 1915 BUGLE 

Neat and attractive, with a cover design dis- 
playing for the first time Bowdoin's new emblem, 
the" polar bear, the 69th volume of the Bugle made 
its appearance on the campus this morning. 
There is so much in such a book of personal in- 
terest centering in picture and "class write-up" 
that its popularity is assured. The present volume 
fully meets the standard in these respects. There 
is much, too, that custom and experience pre- 
scribe for the editors, in the arrangement and 
treatment of the various organizations and de- 
partments. This year's staff has very wisely ac- 
cepted this fact and made alterations only where 
they were consistent with the accepted form. 

The "Grinds," in which originality is given ex- 
pression, are especially noteworthy. There is 



much bright wit and clever thrusts at campus 
personalities, but there is lacking the sting and 
vulgarity which former volumes have sometimes 
contained. The editors are to be congratulated 
for accomplishing this welcome improvement 
without decreasing the best features of the de- 
partment. 

Perhaps the most notable improvement, aside 
from that just mentioned, is the excellent selec- 
tion of cuts and photographic material and the 
high standard of the art work. The department 
headings are of a high grade. 

The volume is dedicated "to Professor Henry 
Johnson, Ph.D., of the Class of 1874, an inspired 
teacher, a devoted alumnus, and a true friend of 
Bowdoin men." 

Although important only at first glance, it is 
pleasing to find the book typographically perfect, 
well bound and printed. From cover to cover the 
69th volume represents the combination of pro- 
gressive but sound editorial judgment, discrimi- 
nating taste, originality, wit and artistic excel- 
lence, and the editors and members of the Junior 
class may well he proud of it. Austin H. Mac- 
Cormick is editor-in-chief and Gordon. P. Floyd, 
business manager.

. ORATION 

George William Bacon, the class orator, took 
for his subject William Pitt Fessenden, a grad- 



66 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



uate of Bowdoin in the class of 1823. He spoke 
as follows : 

Bowdoin has given many of her sons to the ser- 
vice of our country. The bronze tablets on these 
walls bear the names of those who, in the hour of 
the nation's peril offered their lives that liberty 
might be upheld and that the Union might endure. 
Great as is our pride in those men, we may well 
recall at this time another son of Bowdoin, who 
in the same period of trial, rendered no less ser- 
vice to his country and brought no less glory to 
his college — William Pitt Fessenden. True he 
was not a soldier; but, as Hannibal Hamlin said: 

"The duties and victories of civil life are as im- 
portant as those of arms, and the statesman, who 
aids in wisely directing the councils of the na- 
tion, should be held in as cherished remembrance 
as he who successfully commands our armies in 
the field. Such is the position the historian will 
assign Mr. Fessenden." 

Mr. Fessenden entered college in the class of 
1823. During his undergraduate life one of the 
most distinguished groups of men ever gathered 
at an American college were in attendance at 
Bowdoin. There were those men so widely 
known to their contemporaries, James Ware 
Bradbury, Adelpheus Felch and John P. Hale, 
each of whom became United States Senator,— 
Johnathan Cilley, later a leader in the House of 
Representatives, — and that other group which 
needs no identification, — Franklin Pierce, Na- 
thaniel Hawthorne and Henry Longfellow. The 
association with such splendid characters must 
have left an important impress upon the youth- 
ful Fessenden. The contact with such men un- 
doubtedly developed and strengthened those high 
qualities of self-sacrifice and courage that glori- 
fied his later years. 

After graduation he devoted himself to the 
study of the law and became one of the leading 
members of the Maine bar. He served many 
terms in the state legislature and one term in the 
national House of Representatives. But it was 
in the Senate that he achieved fame. 

Elected to that body in 1854, Fessenden was 
thrown at once into the vortex of that storm of 
sectional and party hatred which for nearly 
twenty years shook the country to its foundations, 
which culminated in the War of Secession, and 
which did not recede until the days of Recon- 
struction were over. Through all that tumult, 
the Senator from Maine remained erect and im- 
movable as a rocky promentory, against which 
the waves of mistaken public opinion and party 
hatred lashed in vain. And when the storm sub- 
sided the nation realized thankfully, that there 
was one among its citizens who was strong 



enough and brave enough to consult the welfare 
rather than the passions of the people. 

When Fessenden took his seat, Congress was 
in the midst of a heated debate over the Kansas- 
Nebraska bill. This bill marked the renewal of 
the fight over slavery, which, it was supposed, 
had been laid to rest by the Missouri Compro- 
mise in 1850. Fessenden at once took his stand 
with the anti-slavery forces and delivered a 
speech that electrified the country. As Sumner 
afterwards said, "His. arrival was like a reen- 
forcement on the field of battle." 

This was the first of a series of able speeches. 
In them, his plain, straightforward style, his in- 
exorable logic, his mastery of wit and sarcasm, 
soon won for him the acknowledged leadership 
of the Senate — a position he held until his death. 

At the outbreak of war the Senator from 
Maine was placed at the head of the Finance 
Committee. The vigorous and efficient conduct 
of the affairs of that important committee caused 
Lincoln to offer him a position as Secretary of 
the Treasury, made vacant by the resignation of 
Salmon P. Chase. The Senator, who was in fail- 
ing health, did not wish to accept the position. 
But the Treasury was in desperate straits, and 
Lincoln urged that a sacrifice was necessary. Ac- 
cordingly, with his characteristic self-effacement 
he accepted. What it cost him is shown by one 
of his own letters, containing these words : "I 
am run down with fatigue, retiring exhausted, 
and rising little refreshed — a poor state for such 
work as I have to do. But it must be done and I 
will do it somehow." That he did it most effi- 
ciently Lincoln himself testified. 

The crisis past, Fessenden returned to the Sen- 
ate just as reconstruction of the South was be- 
ginning. Great as his services had already been 
to the country, it was during this trying period 
that he rendered still greater services. He was 
promptly made chairman of the joint committee 
on reconstruction — one of the most important 
committees ever appointed in Congress. The 
task before this committee was tremendous. Its 
duty was to secure permanently the results of the 
war. It was under the responsibility of recon- 
structing the rebellious states, of solving the 
problem presented by the emancipated slaves. A 
long and weary struggle took place in the com- 
mittee and in Congress. With infinite wisdom 
and patience, restraining this too radical mem- 
ber, urging on this too conservative one, Senator 
Fessenden guided the committee to a solution of 
its problems. When its recommendations were 
finally completed, he presented them to Congress 
in a series of masterful speeches that silenced all 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



67 



objections. He saw the reward of his labors in 
the adoption of the thirteenth, fourteenth, and 
fifteenth amendments to the Constitution. These 
amendments made certain that the freedom 
should be wholly free, that those who had died in 
battle should not have died in vain. 

Meanwhile a quarrel had developed between 
President Johnson and Congress. Their ideas 
concerning reconstruction differed widely. The 
President had blocked legislative measures and 
so had brought down upon himself the wrath of 
Congress. As chairman of the Committee on Re- 
construction, Fessenden was exerting every ef- 
fort to bring about a peaceful settlement of the 
quarrel. But the radicals, led by Sumner in the 
Senate and Stevens in the House, were not to be 
denied ; and on February 24, 1868, Andrew 
Johnson, President of the United States, was 
called before the bar of the Senate, and im- 
peached of high crimes and misdemeanors. 

We cannot linger over the details of the great 
trial which followed. As the days went on it was 
seen by many right thinking men that the charges 
against the President were political rather than 
criminal and that his removal would be an act of 
gross injustice. But the passions of the North 
were aroused to the highest pitch. The people 
were demanding Johnson's removal. Tremendous 
pressure was therefore brought to bear upon 
every Republican senator to gain his vote for 
conviction, a vote, that is, against the man whom 
the Republicans themselves had elected. Two- 
thirds of the Senate were necessary to secure this 
result. If seven Republicans should vote against 
conviction the presidency would be saved. 

As the trial progressed, the opinions of most of 
the senators became known, and it was seen that 
the result would turn upon the vote of seven 
doubtful Republicans. Should the radicals se- 
cure any one of those votes, conviction of the 
President would be assured. Among those seven 
was Fessenden. With that fine discrimination, 
with that high sense of justice that he possessed 
he. felt that he must vote for acquittal. When 
this feeling became known the country was 
aroused to fury. The pressure brought to bear 
upon him was terrific. Men from his own state 
threatened him with death so great was their 
rage. Every form of calumny and abuse was 
heaped upon him. It seemed that a vote against 
conviction would mean for Fessenden exile from 
his country, an ignominous end to his long and 
glorious career. 

Nevertheless, when Chief Justice Chase called 
upon him for his vote, he rose in his place, and, 
facing the wrath of the whole nation, looking, as 
he supposed into his political grave, a grave dug 



by his own hands, he pronounced the words "Not 
guilty." 

He was the first of the doubtful Senators to 
vote. The other six, taking courage from his ex- 
ample, voted likewise, and by one vote the Presi- 
dent was acquitted. Had the result been other- 
wise a dangerous precedent would have been es- 
tablished. Had the result been otherwise the 
presidency would have been ever after at the 
mercy of every changing whim of the people. 
Had the result been otherwise a blow would have 
been struck at the foundation of the American 
government. 

At this distant day it is hard for us to appre- 
ciate the courage of those seven men. The his- 
torian Rhodes ably sums up their action in these 
words : 

"The glory of the trial was the action of the 
seven recusant Senators. Only after great in- 
ward trouble could these Senators come to their 
determination. It was so easy to go the other 
way, to agree with the thirty-five, most of whom 
were honest men and some of whom were able 
lawyers, that interpreted the evidence and the 
law in favor of conviction. The average Sen- 
ator who hesitated finally gave his voice with the 
majority, but these seven in conscientiousness 
and delicacy of moral fibre were above any aver- 
age, and in refusing to sacrifice their ideas of 
justice to a popular demand, which in this case 
was neither insincere nor unenlightened they 
showed a degree of courage than which we know 
no higher. Hard as was their immediate future 
they have received their meed from posterity, 
their monument in the admiring tribute of all 
who know how firm they stood in an hour of 
supreme trial." 

As time went on and the passions of the peo- 
ple cooled it seemed that Senator Fessenden 
might gain back the respect and confidence of 
the country. A year after the trial he stood for 
reelection. But before the people could show 
their appreciation of his heroic services he had 
gone to a greater reward. 

The name of William Pitt Fessenden is written 
high upon the roll of America's great statesmen. 
He gave the full measure of his strength to the 
service of his country. When his duty demanded 
it he faced the wrath and scorn of the nation, to 
save it from mistake. In the words of his col- 
legemate Longfellow he knew 

"How sublime a thing it is 
To suffer and be strong." 

The priceless heritage of what he was and what 
he did remains to us, to spur us on to those ideals 
which the College ever holds before us. In the 



68 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



days to come, when the names of the heroes of 
peace, as well as the heroes of war, shall be writ- 
ten in places of honor, high among the shining 
names that will grace Bowdoin's hall of fame will 
be written the name of the devoted patriot, the 
heroic statesman — William Pitt Fessenden. 



POEM 

The Ivy poem by Ivan C. Merrill follows : 
THE HEART OF THE NOVICE. 
"Awake, awake," the bugle calls, 
"The dawn is come we must away. 
The shadows down the mountain creep, 
Awake, awake and greet the day." 

"Awake, awake," the echoes ring 
From wooded dale and gleaming crest 
Until within some mossy cave 
By purling stream they come to rest. 

In one long whitened winding line 
The army moved with measured beat. 
The golden road through breathless wood 
Led down the silent village street. 

'Neath spreading limbs of towering elm 
They marched along the vaulted way. 
The pictured windows of the church 
Shone bright upon that new-born day. 

A boy with wonder in his eyes 
Beheld the soldiers as they came; 
He saw, and yet he did not see, — 
He dreamt of glory and of fame. 

His anxious mother laid her hand 

Upon the youth's uncovered head 

And though her eyes revealed her pride 

Her heart was wrung by woman's dread. 

"Mother mine, mother mine, the heroes go march- 
ing by, 

Mother mine, mother mine, it is now no time to 
cry. 

Can't you hear the drums are rolling? 

Can't you hear the bugles blowing? 

It's time for me to be a-going, 
Mother mine." 

"Son of mine, son of mine, I know the heroes go 
marching by, 

Son of mine, son of mine, I know it's no time to 
cry. 

Not for you the drums are rolling 

Not for you the bugles blowing. 

You're far too young to be a-going, 
Son of mine." 

Through all the day till evening came 

The soldiers marched with faces set 

By gabled roof and village green 

To where the plain and ocean met. 



Through all the day from o'er the hills 
Was heard the cannon's distant roar ; 
And all went down, but none came back, 
From near the plain beside the shore. 

The darkness stole from wood and vale, 
But still the army onward swept. 
A star came out upon the night, 
With silver point its vigil kept. 

The youth from out his restless bed 
Through thickening darkness peered afar. 
Above the slowly fading hills 
He caught the gleam of Northern Star. 

"Star of light, star of might, teach me the path 

they trod. 
Star of light, star of might, teach me to know 

their God. 
From the rocky soil upspringing 
Strength from earth's broad bosom bringing 
They with lofty strain come singing, 

Star of Light." 
Son of Earth ; Life is at thy lip 
Quaff from out the bowl one sip 
Past, present, and all that is to be 
One monent lone is wrapped in thee. 
'Tis fled and life itself has fled 
But in that moment there was bred 
A light, a shade, which may fortell 
An earthly Heaven of a Hell. 
The rough-hewn trail thy fathers trod 
For thee is lighted by their God. 



PLANTING OF THE IVY 

According to tradition the planting of the ivy 
follows the exercises in Memorial Hall. While 
the ivy is being planted the class will sing the Ivy 
ode: 
(Air: Drink to Me Only With Thine Eyes.) 
Beneath the clear blue summer sky 

We plant thee, ivy vine ; 
The western wind will sing to thee, 

The dew-drops on thee shine ; 
When doves will croon a lullaby, 

Thou'lt dream, as thou dost twine, 
Of morn and life and youthful glee 
That brood about thy shrine. 
And we will come in later years 

Though half the world away, 
Though to the west with mellow glow 

Declines life's golden day. 
Our eyes will shine to see through tears 

Thy leaves on walls of gray; 
And mem'ry of the long ago 
Will keep us young for aye.

BOWDOIN 6, BATES 4— MAY 30 

It required eleven innings for Bowdoin to de- 
feat Bates at Lewiston last Saturday. The game 
went into extra innings when Bates scored twice 
in the eighth, making the score 4 to 4. With two 
out in the eleventh Knight started a rally with a 
three-base hit to left field. Singles by Phillips 
and Stetson scored two runs and won the game. 

Bowdoin started the scoring in the first when 
Stetson singled to right after Phillips had gone 
out on a fly to MacDonald. Stetson took second 
on Weatherill's infield out and scored on Cobb's 
error. 

In the second Tuttle singled to left, took second 
on Eaton's sacrifice, third on LaCasce's out and 
scored on Knight's single. 

Bates evened up in the same inning. Butler 
reached first on an error by Eaton and scored on 
a second error by Eaton, Moore reaching second 
on the play. Moore scored from second on Stin- 
son's hit.

first on a hit to right, taking second on Stetson's 
sacrifice, and scoring on McElwee's three-bagger.

BOWDOIN 5, N. H. STATE 

Playing errorless ball behind Fraser Thursday, 
Bowdoin scored five runs and shut out New 
Hampshire State. Bowdoin hit the ball hard 
when hits meant runs and took advantage of er- 
rors by New Hampshire. 

The scoring started in the first. Phillips drew 
a pass but was caught off first. After Stetson 
had popped to Hobbs, Weatherill was given a 
base on balls. He took third when Hobbs fum- 
bled Chapman's grounder. Tuttle singled to left, 
and Weatherill scored, but Chapman was caught 
at the plate in an attempt to score from second. 

With two down in the second, LaCasce took 
two bases on an error and scored on Fraser's 
single. Phillips singled, but Stetson ended the 
inning with a fly to W. Brackett. 

In the third, Weatherill flied out to Fernald. 
Chapman negotiated the circuit when R. Brackett 
threw into the first base bleachers. Tuttle drew 
a base on balls and stole second. McElwee got a 
life when Miller dropped R. Brackett's peg to 
first, and with Tuttle on the scoring end a double 
steal was pulled. Eaton scored McElwee on a 
single to right and stole, but died there as La- 
Casce and Fraser both went out by the air route 
to Fernald in center.

The Board of Proctors for the ensuing year

STUDY THE BALLOT 

To the Student Body: — 

The annual student election to be held next 
Monday is of such importance that a word of ex- 
planation may help. 

None but paid-up members of the A.S.B.C. 
will appear on the list of eligible voters. 

The voting hours zvill be from 11 A. M. to 6 
P. M. The voting place will be the Managers' 
Room, New Gym. 

Voting will be by secret ballot, a copy of which 



appears on the bulletin board. 

Each voter should examine the list previous to 
balloting and inform himself adequately as to the 
relative merits of the candidates. The three of- 
fices of the Student Council and Associated Stu- 
dents are especially important. 

The President of these two bodies has general 
oversight of student affairs, presides at under- 
graduate meetings, represents the College as 
speaker at various functions, and sees that the 
work of the Student Council is promptly and ef- 
ficiently done. The office demands experience,, 
integrity and superior ability. 

The Vice-President, aside from his usual du- 
ties, is chairman of the Board of Managers in 
which position he is largely responsible for the 
success or failure of the blanket tax. The office 
demands experience (if possible with the Board 
of Managers) and ability in executive matters 
and administration of detail. 

The Secretary- keeps numerous records and 
carries on extensive correspondence, occasional- 
ly of an important nature. He is by custom 
chairman of the most important student council 
committee. The office demands faithfulness, ac- 
curacy and executive ability. 

The Student Council itself carries on much ad- 
ministrative work as well as deliberative 'busi- 
ness. Its membership should be as widely repre- 
sentative as possible and should contain those 
members of the upper classes with best practical 
knowledge of student affairs, of soundest judg- 
ment, most constructive minds, and unselfish ad- 
herence to the interests of the College. 

The Athletic Council has many important tasks. 
It reviews the work of the managers, approving 
schedules and expenditures. It has final power 
in making important managerial nominations. It 
determines our athletic policy. When it consid- 
ers any matter relative to a certain sport, the 
captain, coach and manager are by custom, al- 
lowed to sit with the Council. The membership 
should contain men of experience with athletic 
teams, sound judgment and integrity. As a great 
part of the work done by the Council is in connec- 
tion with the work of the managers it has been 
the belief of many that successful ex-managers 
are specially qualified for the body. Although 
such men have been nominated for the past three 
years, the student body has not yet seen fit to 
elect any such men to the Council. The various 
athletic managerships are, of course, extremely 
important as their ability determines to a large 
extent, the financial balance in the student treas- 
ury. 

Robert D. Leigh, 
President Student Council..

BATES WINS CHAMPIONSHIP 

Bates won the state baseball championship by 
defeating Bowdoin at Lewiston last Tuesday, 12 
to 10. The game was loosely played and both 
Knight and Fraser received poor support. 

Bates started the scoring and maintained the 
■ lead throughout, Bowdoin's rally coming too late 
to be effective. Bowdoin out-hit Bates but could 
not bunch hits with any degree of success. 

Bates really won the game in the fourth when 
four hits, two errors, two stolen bases, a passed 
ball and a base on balls netted five runs. After 
that Bowdoin steadied down but the Bates lead 
was too big. 

Chapman and LaCasce hit the ball hard, Chap- 
man getting four hits — two of them doubles — out 
of five times up and LaCasce getting three out of 
five, one for two bases.

BOWDOIN ORIENT 



The features were the work of McElwee and 
Weatherill in the field for Bowdoin and the bat- 
ting of Knight and Fuller. 

Bowdoin made only one hit up to the sixth, but 
in the sixth singles by Weatherill and Chapman 
and McElwee's infield out scored a run. 

In the seventh Bowdoin put the game on ice. 
After Eaton had gone out on a long fly to Butler 
and LaCasce had fanned, Knight hammered a 
clean two-bagger to left center. Phillips and 
Stetson were passed and Knight and Phillips 
scored when MacDonald juggled Weatherill's 
grounder.

PRESIDENT'S REPORT 



The May issue of the Bowdoin College Bulletin 
contains the annual report of the President. The 
payments on gymnasium subscriptions between 
May 1, 1913 and May 1, 1914 total about $10,000. 
The gifts during the year ending April 30, 1914 
total about $85,000. Besides these, there are the 
. Edward A. Drummond and Edwin Bradbury 
Smith bequests totalling more than half a million. 
A summary of the work of the Christian Asso- 
ciation during the past year is given. President 
Hyde goes on to discuss the size of the College 
holding to the idea that our present plan is the 
best, to keep the standards of admission high with 
scarcely any increase in numbers. The discussion 
of the size of classes brings out the interesting 
fact that "Bowdoin has a larger proportion of its 
work on the highly expensive preceptorial basis 
(conference plan) than any college except 



Princeton." He mentions the need of an infirm- 
ary and an endowment fund for its maintenance. 
Other needs of the College cited are a swimming 
pool to complete the athletic equipment, an en- 
trance to Whittier Field, and a consulting archi- 
tect, an expert competent to take charge of the 
planning of the laying out grounds and buildings 
of the College, more scholarships, especially a 
European history prize similar to the one in 
American history. The last of the report is a 
summary of recent developments, the new en- 
trance requirements, the institution of conference 
groups and the fraternity problem. 

In the same issue are the reports of the dean 
of the College, the dean of the Medical School, 
the librarian, the curator of the art collections 
and the gymnasium committee.

Financial Prosperity 

In reviewing the past year we find cause for 
just congratulation on the financial status which 
our athletic teams have reached in one year. Be- 
ginning, the year with heavy deficits, the three 
major sports have made money on their seasons 
and practically wiped out these deficits. Football 
leads with a profit for the season of $890, while 
baseball and track have made smaller amounts. 
This success is due in part to the excellent system 
by which Bowdoin's athletics are supported, but 
it is due in a large measure to the splendid work 
which the managers of these sports have done. 
Their excellent management has lifted their 
teams from debt into comparative freedom, and 
they have made possible a future broadening of 
our athletic policy in directions where financial 



stringency has hampered us in the past. 

A Step Forward 

We congratulate the athletic authorities for 
taking a real step forward in deciding that in the 
future the baseball coach shall not be on the 
bench during a game. Bowdoin has taken the 
lead among the Maine colleges in making this 
step and while it is still doubtful whether the 
other colleges will follow the lead, Bowdoin will 
lose nothing by occupying an individual position. 

Bowdoin, in thus trying to remove from its 
teams the least tinge of professionalism, is only 
holding to the ideal which she has long since 
taken as her own, the ideal of a college whose 
teams shall have records absolutely clean. She 
has steadily refused to offer men financial induce- 
ments because they were desirable men from the 
standpoint of athletics. She has constantly 
striven to put college athletics on the strictly ama- 
teur basis which distinguishes them. Now she 
has taken the final step in that direction when 
she removes during athletic contests the profes- 
sional factor which is embodied in the coach. 

How much in recent years college teams have 
come to depend on hired brains was demonstrat- 
ed recently when one of our big university teams 
played its first game without the coach on the 
bench. This team was defeated by a weaker col- 
lege team, although the losers got twice as many 
hits as the winners. That a team of college men 
should be dependent on the direction of a man of 
professional training in base-running is deplor- 
able. Let the men have the benefit of all the 
expert advice and training they can get from a 
skilled coach, but when the test of a game comes, 
let them put their training into practice without 
depending on a man to pull the strings and work 
out their salvation for them. 

There is no doubt that the new system of direc- 
tion will require the utmost care in the selection 
of the captain, as on him will fall the task of 
substituting players when it is necessary. It will 
require a man of sure, impartial judgment above 
all things, one who will be in reality as well as 
nominally a leader.

guests for three days during Commencement 
week, at his home on Maine Street, where the 
formal reunion banquet will take place on the af- 
ternoon of Wednesday, June 24. 

There was a total of 47 men connected with the 
class during its career at Bowdoin of whom 43 
survive, one having died while in College, and 
three since graduation. The class has the unusual 
record of no deaths among its membership for 
more than 15 years. William M. Emery, a news- 
paper editor of Fall River, Mass., is the class 
secretary. 

Each of the class has recently received as a 
gift of a fellow member, B. C. Carrol, a high tele- 
phone official of San Francisco, a large and hand- 
somely mounted photograph of a scene on the 
Bowdoin campus from a negative of 25 years ago.

28 cents for both the Orient and the Quill for 
the year. We thank you. 

Romilly Johnson, who graduated from College 
in 1906, and who has made a remarkable record 
in grand opera in Italy, sang in Memorial Hall 
last night under the auspices of the Ibis. This 
concert was his first professional appearance in 
his native land. 

Football practice is to begin promptly on Sept. 
14. An unusually hard schedule is ahead for the 
team and it is necessary that all. men should get 
back early to get in condition for the first game. 
Trainer Magee and Coach McCann will both be 
back then and every man should be there the 
first day. Trainer Magee wants football as well 
as track men to keep in touch with him this sum- 
mer at his address, 134 Kimball Avenue, Revere, 
Mass.

THE BACCALAUREATE SERMON 

President Hyde took as his subject "Primary 
and Secondary Values," and his text, "But seek 
ye first in His kingdom, and His righteousness; 
and all these things shall be added unto you," 
Matthew VI :33. 

He spoke in part as follows : 

"The fine art of character is to put primary 
values first, and secondary values second. In big 
business put the rights of stockholders, economy 
and efficiency of operation, and the interests of 
patrons first : and confidence, goodwill, appreciat- 
ed stocks, large and steady dividends follow. Put 
the manipulation of stock by the directors for 
their own profit, buying of and selling to them- 
selves and their friends in different capacities 
first; and passed dividends, depreciated stocks, 
ruined reputations, threatened receiverships, in- 
voked government control, criminal prosecution, 
follow as the night the day. 

"Life is a relation with two ends : one toward 
God and our fellows; one toward ourselves. The 
College expects her sons to live primarily at the 
public, social, divine end of each relation, with, 
as Ibsen says, 

'A will that's whole, 
A soaring faith, a single soul' 
The College will rejoice in whatever honors, of- 
fices, emoluments, come to you as by-products; 
but her chief concern is that through you some 
truth shall shine in a clearer light; some work 
shall be done with a more faithful hand; some 
business shall be managed with a finer justice; 
some profession shall be followed with a more 
disinterested devotion; some persons shall be 



82 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



loved with a purer affection; some sphere of 
God's righteousness shall be served with a higher 
consecration. 

''The pursuit of these primary values not mere- 
ly brings the secondary; it changes the man and 
makes him worthy of them when they come — a 
far more important thing than merely having 
them."

CLASS POEM— K. A. ROBINSON 

The class day poem by Kenneth A. Robinson 
was entitled "The Voyagers." It told of the 
longing of early mariners for the sea and its ad- 
ventures and of the joy of returning home after 
long voyages. 



CLASS ORATION— E. C. GAGE 

The College Man as a Citizen. 
(Abstract.) 

Some college men will be great leaders of the 
nation, but all are bound to be citizens; these 
men, imbued with high ideals, have great influ- 
ence in their communities. In point of number 
college men are few but they are the ones who 
inaugurate and uphold reform. 

Educators disagree on the different kinds of 
education, some upholding the liberal and some 
the vocational. Both admit morality to be the 
great essential; the liberal school claims that a 
liberal education alone can give this, while the 



vocational school claims that morality is a by- 
product — a result of industriousness. This 
morality is the essence of the man himself, his 
capacity for sympathy and appreciation and un- 
derstanding rather than for getting money. It is 
the basis of good citizenship. 

A vocational education makes no effort to de- 
velope morality and does not fit a man to become 
a leading citizen. There was never a more definite 
need for men of liberal education as citizens. 
Financial success is taken as the criterion of 
highest success. Vocational education is an urge 
to this tendency and the man who gives himself 
up to it is a servant, not a leader, in society. But 
the citizen of liberal education by no means re- 
pudiates the commercial and scientific triumphs 
of the United States. He assimilates the good; 
he rejects the bad. And he is able to do this be- 
cause he has standards of judgment that are fun- 
damental. A college which bestows upon her 
sons such qualities is giving to the individual 
and to society values which are permanent be- 
yond all others. 



OPENING ADDRESS-G. F. EATON 
(Abstract.) 

I extend a most cordial welcome to the Alumni 
and friends of the College and to those who are 
here through interest in some member of the 

Friends : what is the significance of this gath- 
ering today? You behold the members of the 
class of 1914 starting on their independent life, 
sacrifices are worth while. 

Although the experimental stage of democracy 
We realize the sacrifices made to give us a col- 
lege education. It is for us to prove that these 
is passed, the United States is at a critical point 
class. 

in her history. The country is confronted with 
economic, social and political problems of great 
moment. Countless labor disturbances show us 
the need for some solution of our labor problems. 
We are confronted with the problem of our popu- 
lation. Our political problems are complex. Our 
possessions have increased in the Pacific. The 
Panama Canal involves questions of a delicate 
political nature. The Mexican situation is by no 
means the least. How is the Republic to meet 
its problems ? 

The solution is not legislation. The only way 
is to educate the people to a plane where they 
will desire the best solution for all. We cannot 
have a perfect democracy until we have more 
perfect people. 

We who are graduating from college recognize 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



S3 



our debt to society. If we use whatever force we 
possess in raising the people to a higher plane we 
may feel sure that we are becoming vital influ- 
ences in solving the problems of our nation and 
that we are repaying our debt with interest. 



HISTORY— L. A. DONAHUE 

(Abstract.) 

The class of 1914 entered college in the fall of 
1910 and since that time has been prominent in 
all college activities. We have had our banquets, 
have won our class games, and have rung the bell 
after the games. We have stood well in our 
studies, and have been well represented on the 
varsity athletic teams. The members of the class 
have shown a willingness to sacrifice themselves 
for the good of the class and of the College. 

Freshman year we were very uncertain, Soph- 
omore year very independent, Junior year very 
scornful, and now we are left wondering at the 
meaning of our four years at Bowdoin. It may 
truly be said that 1914 is a well rounded class, 
one which has been sought to bring about a better 
spirit of wholesomeness and manliness in the 
College, and one which, we trust, has helped to 
make Bowdoin a better Bowdoin. These are 
memories that each member of 1914 should keep 
before him. We trust that we, as undergrad- 
uates, have here assimilated at least in part that 
spirit of love which is at the heart of the uni- 
verse, and we hope that this same spirit of uni- 
versal love may dominate our lives as alumni, 
helping us to disseminate generously throughout 
the world the enduring truth of love. 



PARTING ADDRESS— R. L. BUELL 

(Abstract.) 
It is hard to say good-bye to Bowdoin College, 
for the influence here formed will go far toward 
making a better world for us. We have devel- 
oped a friendship for the members of the faculty 
of the College; we find them friends, kindly and 
sympathetic, ready to share our joys and our sor- 
rows. Deeper only than the friendship for the 
faculty is the friendship we feel for one another. 
We are thankful indeed that the separation from 
our friends is merely physical; the memories of 
hours spent together will brighten the dark-days- . 
to-come period. The successes we may achieve 
will prove far sweeter because sixty men from 
coast to coast are rejoicing with us. This sym- 
pathetic interest cannot help make it easier for 
us to do our duty. We are boys now: tomorrow 
we will be men. With manliness comes a deeper, 
truer and fuller realization of what our four 



years of work and play have signified. 



ALUMNI 3, VARSITY 
Purington's home run drive in the second 
spelled defeat for the varsity in the game with 
the alumni Wednesday. Dresser had already 
reached first on a pass and scored on the drive. 
The alumni scored again in the fourth when 
Dresser again drew a base on balls. Hobbs sin- 
gled to right and Dresser scored when Wood let 
the throw from right field go through him.

Alumni Influence 

At a time when more alumni are on the campus 
than at any other time during the year, the an- 
nouncement of statistics taken in this year's 
Freshman class with regard to alumni influence 
is of especial interest. The Freshmen were asked 
to state whether they had been influenced to come 
to Bowdoin by alumni or not. Of 78 men who re- 
ported, 46 men were influenced by alumni, or 
about 59 per cent, of the number. In a few of 
the other cases the alumni had an indirect in- 
fluence, through fame, for instance. 

There has been in the last year considerable 
discussion as to the size of the future Bowdoin 
and steps have been taken within the College to 
reach out more and more with a view to making 
future classes larger with no loss of quality. A 



student committee, known as the Central Com- 
mittee, was organized, composed of representa- 
tives of each of the Maine counties and various 
sections of the United States to encourage activ- 
ity of this sort. It has been urged that every 
legitimate step be taken to reach men and 
acquaint them with Bowdoin's worth and if possi- 
ble interest them in coming here. 

The power of undergraduate committees, how- 
ever faithful and enthusiastic they may be, falls 
far short of what is necessary. The undergrad- 
uate is restricted to a limited area and those who 
represent distant parts of the country rarely get 
home. Our alumni are everywhere and through 
them it is possible for Bowdoin influence to be 
spread in all quarters. Again, the arguments of 
the undergraduate, while backed by great enthus- 
iasm, often lose weight through this very enthus- 
ism, for the man to whom he talks considers what 
he says simply as a natural expression of loyalty. 
The argument of the alumnus, however, loses no 
weight from fear of insincerity. His loyalty is 
coupled with an experienced judgment which 
balances good against fault and if the years since 
he graduated have added to the strength of his 
convictions as to Bowdoin's worth, his power to 
influence has been increased in a large degree. 

False modesty in the matter of praising one's 
Alma Mater keeps many men from talking to 
prospective college men of their own college. 
Yet if we are to have larger classes, or at least 
a greater number of applicants for admission, the 
alumni must talk, sincerely but enthusiastically, 
to men who are preparing for college. 

Commencement Week is here with its continual 
revival of memories of life at Bowdoin and its 
constant reminder of what Bowdoin stands for. 
Summer is here with its countless opportunities 
to hand on to other men these memories and to 
hold out to them the merits and advantages of 
Bowdoin. Cooperation and individual endeavor 
will be of inestimable value in reaching men of 
the type needed to make the ideal college. 
Alumnus and undergraduate can join, not in 
empty extolling of the College, but in service of 
that College through influence of those who will 
cherish and foster Bowdoin's future. 



COMMENCEMENT HOP 
The Commencement hop was held Tuesday in 
the new Gymnasium. The decorations were 
streamers of blue and white, the class colors, 
gracefully drooped from the ceiling. Potted 
palms and other effects were introduced. The

COMMENCEMENT EXERCISES 
E. C. GAGE 

(Abstract.) 

Elwyn C. Gage took for his subject "A New 
Spirit in American Diplomacy." He spoke in 
part as follows : 

During the last year a new principle has been 
guiding diplomats of the United States. What- 
ever problems have been handled a new guiding 
spirit has been brought into play by the present 
administration in accordance with the develop- 
ment of the past few centuries. This principle is 
that no nation can be self-sufficing, that if a na- 
tion is to grow truly prosperous it must rely on 
other nations and in turn aid them. This is the 
true standard that Mr. Wilson has set himself 
to maintain, however powerful and troublesome 
individual interests within his own interests may 
be. 

This is not the result of vague theory but of a 
study of history, economics and political science. 
International law would have sanctioned the rec- 
ognition of Huerta, and powerful commercial in- 
terests at home would have been quieted by such 
a move. A reputation for square dealing is a 
better asset in the end considered from any 
standpoint than a commercial foothold in China.

or American oil wells in Mexico, or a flourishing 
coastwise trust. 

This policy may not be so popular as a military 
policy. The strong fighter has always been an 
heroic figure. The country's honor is too big a 
thing to be touched by the taunts of Mexicans 
and the laughter of London clubs. 

Such policy may be impossible at the present 
time, but if it is, it will be because the president 
has erred in thinking too highly of the American 
people. It is rooted in a faith in men and our 
civilization that goes far deeper than partizan- 
ship. And quite vital to this policy is the convic- 
tion that Christian ethics — as human and prac- 
tical a system of living as was ever conceived — 
can be successfully applied to relations among 
mankind. 



P. L. WHITE 



The chief value of a college education is that 
it smooths over the transition from childhood to 
maturity. It is the bright men who commit 
crime, men who have fallen victims to unfortu- 
nate environment. If these same men could 
have been shielded from necessity they would 
have had different views of life. College lays 
bare to a man the field of life, and makes him 
less dependent on the accidental face which the 
world happens to show him. Of course all his 
principles must be tested in the fires of living, he 
must rediscover for himself what has been shown 
him from afar but he has been given a standard 
of measurement based upon scientific study of 
the past. This is the central idea of education, 
the object that impels fathers to make sacrifices 
for the education of their children. 



K. A. ROBINSON 



O. Henry. 
(Abstract.) 

It is five years now since O. Henry died, 
mourned simply and sincerely by millions of peo- 
ple. People liked him first of all because they 
could understand him. He did not attempt to 
preach but was an undisguised entertainer. But 
his works are not a comedy to be laughed at ; the 
student of literature finds in them a marvellous 
power of carrying dramatic narrative to a clean 
cut climax and conclusion. 

O. Henry seems destined, of all the American 
writers of recent years, to become immortal. 
Added to his purely technical power is the impor- 
tant quality of popular appeal. Coming from the 
western plains to the City of New York, O. 
Henry heard not the voice of the city, but the 



voice of the city's people. He is not the depicter 
of New York, he is New York itself, in all its 
startling characteristics, and as the city is never 
tomorrow as it is today, so O. Henry for all his 
humor and skill will be forgotten. 

O. Henry failed of his highest attainment be- 
cause he tried to study and portray New York, a 
city too vast, too many-sided, too perpetually in 
the process of change. From this we may deduce 
that the great American literature, when it does 
come, will not be a literature of New York, which 
does not present a life that is typically American.

The Age of the Short Story. 
(Abstract.) 

In the nineteenth century fiction found expres- 
sion chiefly in the novel. In later years, however, 
our best writers of fiction, Kipling, Stevenson, O. 
Henry, DeMau Passant and Daudet have been 
producing short stories. In a novel an author 
may introduce a thousand characters and scenes, 
but in the short story he must restrict himself as 
a dramatist is restricted. Short story writers 
make a simple, concentrated, unified effort for a 
single artistic effect. 

The short story and the drama are much alike. 
The drama will always be the most popular form 
of telling a story but there must be forms for 
those who cannot attend the theater. Masters of 
the short story are appearing on every side, and 
in their hands the short story is not a debased or 
decadent form of fiction but only an off-shoot 
from the older branch. We revere the time of 
Queen Elizabeth as the Age of the Drama and 
the last century as the Age of Poetry and we may 
justly assume for ourselves some sense of pride 
in having lived in the Age of the Short Story.

The Boss and the Expert. 
(Awarded the Goodwin Commencement Prize.) 
(Abstract.) 
During the past century the simple has become 
the complex, the common task specialized. Al- 
though this same increase of intricacy has taken 
place in politics we maintain that in government 
the average citizen is an expert. But the ma- 
chinery devised to give the governing power to 
the voter has not done its work, and the actual 
control of public politics is in the hands of a spe- 
cial body. Professional politicians are not strict- 
ly honest in their methods but gain their position 
by secret methods ; these creatures are not leaders 
but bosses; they are not experts in anything ex- 



BOWDOIN ORIENT

cept in retention of party control. 

These rings remain in spite of aroused public 
opinion. If we are to rid ourselves of them we 
must recognize the need of experts to undertake 
political work. With the administration of Jack- 
son the spoils system was inaugurated. Inevit- 
ably there arose the need of someone to distribute 
the spoils, to make a business of the work the 
voter was not able to perform ; this was done by 
the boss. If we wish to do away with boss con- 
trol we must recognize frankly that in our age of 
specialization much of government must be dele- 
gated, not unconsciously to corrupt politicans but 
to a trained body of responsible experts. We 
must provide for a short ballot and more ap- 
pointments, thus taking away the prize of patron- 
age and giving it to the responsible public officer. 
We shall secure government, not by bosses 
through the people but by the people through 
experts. 

Such changes are opposed by the beneficiaries 
of patronage and by many sincere men who are 
mistakenly fighting under false colors. In its 
failure to attract experts to office the machinery 
of government contains the weaknesses which 
have caused the ruin of republics. Democracy 
may unite with Efficiency and become permanent. 
All intelligent men, all who feel the flush of mag- 
nificent service in bringing an earnest but groping 
nation nearer to its worthy ideal, must take up 
arms. The political call of the hour is to the 
cause of substituting the expert for the boss. 



NEAL TUTTLE 

Semmelweis the Unknown. 
(Abstract.) 

Ignaz Phillip Semmelweis was a native of 
Buda Pesth, Hungary. He studied medicine and 
became assistant in a hospital at Vienna. In this 
hospital mortality reached the alarming figure of 
36 out of every hundred. Semmelweis endeavored 
to lower this rate and after careful observation 
he required his assistants to cleanse their hands 
with -an antiseptic wash of chloride of lime be- 
fore every operation. The result was that the 
mortality dropped to one out of the hundred. 
Through jealousy and vanity of his fellow-work- 
ers he was driven from his position and soon 
died. 

Semmelweis and his work were forgotten, but 
in the same century Lord Lister in England dis- 
covered that poisons, which he recognized as 
germs, received from without by open wounds, 
cause fever and death, and that if these germs 
could be destroyed many lives would be saved. 



Twenty years later Lister learned of his forerun- 
ner. It is no exaggeration to say that had it not 
been for Semmelweis and Lister industrial civi- 
lization must have come to a standstill through 
the number of men destroyed, the numbers of 
mothers slain and the accumulation of the 
maimed and invalid.

and overseers. It was voted by the boards to re- 
pair the exteriors of the Searles Science Building 
and Memorial Hall. The new members of the 
faculty are given in another column.

ALUMNI REUNIONS 
Following the customs of many years the 
classes whose anniversaries are divisible by five 
held reunions. Most conspicuous were the mem- 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



bers of 1909, whose gray jackets with red facings 
furnished striking identification. The class head- 
quarters were the Alexander house on Maine 
Street. The class of 1904 celebrated its tenth. 
Members of the class wore Soudan helmets of 
true India style, with hatbands of green and 
white, the class colors. The class engaged the 
Second Regiment Band of Lewiston, which gave 
a band concert on the campus Tuesday evening. 

The 1894 headquarters were on Cleaveland 
Street. Professor Files's house on Maine Street 
was the rendezvous for 1889 which was celebrat- 
ing its twenty-fifth. One member of the class 
came from California to attend the reunion. 

Other classes which had reunions were 1884, 
1879, 1874, 1869 and 1864, which was celebrating 
its fiftieth. The 1874 headquarters were in Pro- 
fessor Johnson's house on Maine Street, Profes- 
sor Johnson being a member of the class. 

Stetson '06 probably came the farthest to at- 
tend Commencement ; he registered from Hong 
Kong, China. Atwood '09 came from California. 



COMMENCEMENT DINNER 

The final event of Commencement week was 
the Commencement dinner held in the Gymna- 
sium directly after the exercises today. It was 
estimated that fully 500 graduates of the College 
were present. President Hyde presided at the 
dinner, calling upon one speaker from each class 
celebrating a "five" reunion. Among the speak- 
ers was President Abbott Lawrence Lowell of 
Harvard University. The dinner itself was ex- 
cellent and ranked well with those of past years.

COMMUNICATION' 

June 17, 1914. 
The Editor of the Bowdoin Orient, 
Brunswick, Maine. 
Dear Sir:— May I take advantage of your 



columns to call the attention of the alumni and 
the College to what seems to me to be a very 
serious mistake in the selection of the Alumni 
Council, a notice of which appeared in your issue 
of- June 16. 

The members are individually, I feel sure, a 
credit to the council and the College, but seems to 
me, that they have been elected from too limited 
a geographical area. Of the twelve members, 
eight are from Maine, two from Boston, and one 
each from New York City and Salt Lake City. 
Seven, or a majority, are from territory within a 
radius of thirty-three miles from Brunswick. 

It seems to me that the council should be made 
up of representative Bowdoin men from different 
parts of the country, so that the work of the mem- 
bers may be effective in bringing to Bowdoin a 
more representative group of American young 
men. Bowdoin's strength in Maine is unquestion- 
able. The College is quite able to impress itself 
on the territory within the immediate vicinity 
without the aid of seven members of the Alumni 
Council. Boston and the Massachusetts territory 
is well represented, I think, by two men. But I 
seriously question the wisdom of expecting the 
two other members of the council, Messrs. Rob- 
erts and Burton, to take care of the rest of the 
United States. These two men, I believe, are two 
of the strongest men on the council; but it is 
obviously impossible for them to try to cover the 
great area that seems to have been delegated to 
them. 

Bowdoin should attract more men from the 
South, the Middle West, the Northwest, Canada 
and even the Pacific Coast. Why not have a rep- 
resentative from each of these sections instead of 
the excessive representation from territory in the 
immediate vicinity of Brunswick? 

Possibly I have misinterpreted the work of the 
Alumni Council. But it seems to me that one of 
Bowdoin's greatest needs is a student body, not 
larger, but more truly American and less provin- 
cial. The fulfillment of that need is a task which 
the Alumni Council might well assume; but I 
doubt if it can be handled by a council the ma- 
jority of whom are within hailing distance of 
Brunswick. 

Very respectfully yours, 

Cedric R. Crowell, 
Bowdoin 1913.

BOWDOIN 7, AMHERST 

Bowdoin emerged the victor over Amherst in 
a gruelling- and exciting game at Amherst Satur- 
day by a score of 7 to 0. The only touchdown of 
the game was scored by Colbath in the last two 
minutes of play. He ran 55 yards along the side 
line after intercepting a forward pass from 
Cooper to Ashley. 

Amherst kicked off in the first period, and for 
the first half the game was evenly waged, the 
ball travelling from one end of the field to the 
other. To Captain Lewis go the punting honors, 
his kicks far outdistancing those of the other 
team. 

In the third period Amherst rushed the ball to 
our 30 yard line, where the Bowdoin team held. 
In the last period, Brown intercepted a Bowdoin 
pass and made a 35 yard run but was stopped by 
Shumway on our 25 yard line. 

Captain Warren featured for Amherst, at one 
time pulling off a 30 yard end run.

CROSS COUNTRY 



The cross-country squad is being fast rounded 
into shape under Jack Magee. With new men 
reporting every day and with last year's entire 
team back, with the exception of ex-Captain Tar- 
box, prospects for a strong team look better than 
they have for several years. The schedule for 
the fall may include a dual race with Vermont 
Oct. 31. The M.I.C.A.A. race which is to be held 
in Brunswick is scheduled for Nov. 6 and the 
N.E.I.C.A.A. race for Nov. 14. 

The squad at present includes Bacon '15, Cut- 
ler '15, Wright '15, Campbell '16, Fuller '16, Hes- 
cock '16, Irving '16, Sayward '16, Winter '16, 
Babcock '17, Bond '17, Cormack '17, Crosby '17, 
Noyes '17, Allen '18, Hamlin '18, Hurling '18, 
Jacob '18 and Moulton '18. 

All Freshmen who have had any previous train- 
ing as well as those who have never run before 
are urged to try out for the team. 



MEETING FOR FRESHMEN 
A meeting for Freshmen will be held tonight 
at seven in the debating room. The speakers will 
be: 

Musical Clubs West '15

Board should hand their names to the managing- 
editor at the Psi U house at once. Three mem- 
bers of the Board will be chosen from the Fresh- 
man class in March and one from the Sophomore 
class in October. In the election of members the 
points considered are the amount of space ac- 
cepted, accuracy, promptness and neatness.

The Entering Class 

The College has received its annual influx of 
new material and has begun its process of devel- 
oping the diverse products of various preparatory 
schools into similar yet individual Bowdoin men. 
While individualism will not be lost, the men who 
now enter must become in many senses similar, 
through constant asssociation with men of kin- 
dred ideals and ambitions. Four years of such 
association mold a man whether he is conscious 
of it or not and if he has within him the things 
which make up the true Bowdoin man, those char- 
acteristics will be brought out and he will become 
what the world knows as "a Bowdoin man." 

This development, while partly due to outside 
inspiration and influence, is in a large measure 
the result of a man's inward conviction and de- 



termination. If the Freshman has made up his 
mind that he will give to the College the best that 
he has of loyalty and service while he takes from 
it what it has to offer, he is already in spirit a 
Bowdoin man. If he plans to take from the Col- 
lege all that he can, returning the minimum 
amount of service, he will never be able truth- 
fully to call himself by that name. 

Bowdoin's activities are well organized and 
well supported financially. From football to de- 
bating, they offer splendid advantages for par- 
ticipation which will be good for both the activity 
and the participant. The Freshman must realize 
that his class brings the new material which gives 
added impetus to these activities. He must also 
realize the scope of the activities and that for 
every man there is an opportunity to serve the 
College and himself. No man who is physically 
and mentally fit should dodge the opportunity but 
should engage in some one of the various things 
for which he has a liking. College life is said to 
be a complex existence but its complexity be- 
comes simple when each man assumes his share 
of the work and gives it some of his energy or 
talent. 

Special opportunities are given the Freshman 
to learn not only what he can do but also how to 
do it. A meeting will be held tonight in Hubbard 
Hall, where each activity will be explained by 
men of experience, and the method of becoming 
active outlined. The meeting last year proved of 
great interest and value to those of the incoming 
class to whom College life meant activity outside 
of the class-room as well as within it. 



Fraternities 

Within the last few days over half of the enter- 
ing class have pledged themselves to membership 
in the eight national fraternities represented at 
Bowdoin. To these men we offer congratulations, ' 
for the fraternities here are splendid institutions 
of which one may well be proud. Yet what of the 
other 40 per cent, who for one reason or another 
have not become fraternity men? Have 60 per 
cent, received a distinction which raises them 
above the rest of their classmates ? The recogni- 
tion of the falseness of such an idea is necessary 
to true democracy in College. 

We must appreciate the fact that the rush of 
the first few days makes sure judgment of men 
impossible and that the selection of men during 
these days does not set them apart as men of su- 
perior worth, nor does it label as unworthy of 
membership those who are left. The number of 
men unworthy of membership is comparatively 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



95 



small, while the number worthy is decidedly 
greater than the fraternities are able to take in. 

The number of non-fraternity men is increas- 
ing each year and the idea that it is useless for a 
non-fraternity man to engage in competition for 
offices or managerships must become more and 
more old-fashioned. The body of non-fraternity 
men is capable of power and that power will not 
and can not be denied it by the men who make 
up the fraternity groups. We trust that this year 
will see competition which is more general and a 
more complete elision of all distinctions. To pre- 
serve College and class spirit distinctions which 
are unfounded must be wiped out and judgments 
of men be based carefully on merit alone. 



BLANKET TAX 



Two hundred sixty-eight men paid the Blanket 
Tax assessment last week, eight of them being 
for the entire year and 67 applied for extensions, 
a total of 335 men. This leaves a considerable 
number of unpaid assessments but, owing to the 
fact that some of the undergraduates, especially 
the Freshmen, did not understand the legal time 
limit on Blanket Tax payments, the Board of 
Managers has decided to allow such men a chance 
to pay or request an extension this week on spe- 
cial application to H. H. Foster, Assistant Treas- 
urer. 



ART BUILDING NOTES 

By way of correction, it is desirable to state 
that the excellent portrait of Professor Chapman, 
owned by the College, has been hanging in the 
Boyd Gallery now for many months. The one 
shown in Hubbard Hall at Commencement time 
was the work of the artist who exhibited it for 
sale, — a wholly different work from that in the 
possession of the College. This statement is 
made in view of a misunderstanding on the part 
of several friends of the College. 

Two casts from the ancient Greek, one of the 
famous low relief of Hegeso, and the other of the 
relief at Naples, representing the parting of Or- 
pheus and Eurydice, have been given to-the Col- 
lege in memory of Miss Caroline T. Robinson, 
who was for so many years assistant curator of 
the art collections. 

Four casts representing the best period of 
Greek sculpture, have been given to the College 
by Henry Deering Esq., who received the honor- 
ary degree of Master of Arts from Bowdoin in 
1908. These consist of the caryatid, from the 
porch of the Erectheum, two slabs from the frieze 
of the Parthenon, and the figure of Nike, from 



the balastrade of the Nike Apteros on the Acro- 
polis. 

Recent additions to the series of sepia prints 
have been made in the way of large post cards, 
including four charming interior views of the 
halls of the exhibition galleries of the building. 
These inexpensive and most excellent prints have 
been furnished too late to provide a much sought 
for souvenir for the summer tourists who have 
visited the building to the number of over three 
thousand during the past vacation. 

At the last commencement the College was for- 
tunate in securing the services of Miss Anna E. 
Smith, as assistant curator of the art collections. 
Miss Smith is especially well qualified to fulfill 
the duties of assistant curator. 



FRESHMAN RECEPTION 

Many of the upper classmen were present at 
the reception tendered the Freshman class by 
the Y.M.C.A. in Hubbard Hall Thursday even- 
ing. The receiving line was made up of Presi- 
dent Hyde, Dean Sills, George E. Fogg '02, Mac- 
Cormick '15 and Rev. Chauncey W. Goodrich. 
The program follows :

The Student Dean Kenneth C. M. Sills 

The speeches were followed by the singing of 
Bowdoin Beata and Phi Chi. The Bowdoin 
handbooks, known as "Freshman Bibles," were 
distributed to those present. They contain a 
great deal of useful information about the Col- 
lege, and are given with the compliments of the 
Christian Association. Refreshments were served 
at the close of the program. The committee in 
charge of the entertainment was made up of 
Koughan '15, chairman; Sayward '16, sub-chair- 
man; Robinson '17 and McConaughy '17.

This is a total of 41 more men than registered 

last year while about ten more are expected. 



SECOND TEAM SCHEDULE 
The second football team will play Hebron at 
Hebron, Oct. 3, and Coburn at Waterville, Oct. 
10, pending. 



Cfte f>tber dlollcges 

Freshmen who go to Princeton need no longer 
worry about hazing during their first two weeks 
at least, as "horsing," the traditional method of 
terrifying new men, is no longer to be practiced. 

At Ohio University a committee composed of 
members of the faculty selects a list of possible 
patronesses for the fraternity dances, and only 
ladies included in the list are eligible for that 
office. 

The Dartmouth publishes each day a list of the 
Freshmen pledged to each of the fraternities. No 
pledge is considered binding until it has ap- 
peared in the college paper, but then all fraterni- 
ties are compelled to respect the buttons of the 
other houses. 

Vermont has started a new college store which 
is to be run by the students. It adjoins the 
library, and the same force which runs the store 
will also be in charge of the library. All articles 
sold in the store will cost only a very moderate 
price, enough to cover the cost and express. This 
plan is expected to lower considerably the price 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



97 



of books and other necessaries, while at the same 
time it will furnish a method of earning money 
to needy students. 

Previous to the rushing season at Williams, 
which begins shortly after the opening of college, 
no fraternity men except those who are acting 
officially for college organizations, or who have 
the approval of the president of the interfratern- 
ity council may enter the rooms of the new non- 
fraternity men. Non-fraternity men of the three 
upper classes are treated in this manner also. 

The annual flag rush, held each year between 
Sophomores and Freshmen at Wesleyan is gov- 
erned by a set of rules drawn up under the super- 
vision of a committee of upper classmen. The 
time for the contest is limited to ten minutes. 
The flag pole on which the flag is fastened can 
be only nine feet high ; this is defended by the 
Freshmen, and if they can hold off the Sopho- 
mores for ten minutes, they win. 



Cfte iLitjratp Cable 

During the summer a revolving case has been 
placed in the Library near the entrance. This 
case contains a collection of views of English 
domestic architecture, the type to which the Li- 
brary belongs. 

Mrs. P. L. Pottle of Lewiston has made an ad- 
dition to the portraits of Bowdoin's alumni in the 
gift of a portrait of Samuel Royal Thurston of 
the class of 1843, nrst representative in Congress 
from Oresron. 



Cluo anD Council Meetings 

The Track Club was organized shortly before 
the close of College last June by the members of 
the track squad. Officers were elected as follows : 
McKenney '15, president; Floyd '15, vice-presi- 
dent; Crosby '17, secretary; Chase '16, treasurer. 
A constitution was drawn up and accepted. This 
club differs from the Monday Night Club and 
-B.B.B. Club in that membership is not restricted 
to varsity men. Honorary members were chosen 
as follows : Dr. Whittier, Dr. Bell, Dr. Copeland 
and Professor Nixon. Dr. Whittier entertained 
the members of the club at New Meadows Inn. 
During the coming winter the club will have reg- 
ular meetings in order to stimulate interest in 
track. 

The Sophomore class has elected the following 
officers: McConaughy, president; Shumway, 
vice-president ; Blanchard, secretary-treasurer ; 
Shumway, captain of baseball ; Sampson, mana- 
ger of baseball. 



SOn ttje Campus 

The elements conspired to remove the 1917 
flag from the Chapel. 

The call for candidates for assistant manager 
of track has been issued. 

John Clair Minot '96 was on the campus during 
the first few days of college. 

The Annie Talbot Cole lecturer for this year is 
Professor George Herbert Palmer of Harvard. 

Grierson ex-'i$, Wyman e^-'i6, Colton ex-\"j 
and Woodworth ex-'iy have returned to College. 

Candidates for assistant manager of football 
are Blanchard, Martell, Moran and Robinson, all 
1917. 

The eight fraternities are included in a recent- 
ly published list of the heaviest tax payers in 
Brunswick. 

Men wishing to enter the fall tennis tourna- 
ment should give their names at once to Wood- 
man '16 or Stone '17. 

It begins to look like that new dormitory. 
Every room on the campus is filled and several 
Freshmen are rooming outside. 

The Student Council held its first important 
meeting last evening, too late to secure particu- 
lars for the Orient. The Dramatic Club held a 
meeting at the same time, and the band had its 
first practice. 

A new slate roof has been put on Memorial 
Hall, new boilers have been placed in the power 
plant, and the fence near the carriage entrance to 
Whittier Field has been shifted to include more 
land beside the grandstand. 

The Bath Times of Sept. 19 gives an account 
of a personal investigation of the dumdum bul- 
lets by Professor Bell who was in Germany when 
the war broke out. Professor and Mrs. McCon- 
aughy were in England at the beginning of the 
European war. 

Among those who are not to return to school 
are Yenetchi '16, Ginty '16, Taber '16 and Olson 
'16, who have gone to Tufts; Barry '16, who has 
gone to the University of Maine Law School; 
Hagerman '16, J. E. Boothby '17, R. McL. Booth- 
by '17 and Langs '17. The latter has entered the 
University of Michigan. 

The following men are serving as stewards in 
the respective fraternities for the ensuing col- 
lege year: Wing '15, Psi Upsilon; Coxe '15, 
Delta Kappa Epsilon; Phillips '17, Theta Delta 
Chi; Stratton '16, Delta Upsilon; H. Kuhn '15, 
Zeta Psi; Keegan '15, Kappa Sigma; H. A. Lewis 
'15, Beta Theta Pi; Thomas '16, Bowdoin Club. 
A. R. Palmer is again at his old position as chef 
at the Alpha Delta Phi chapter house.

'68. — In the death of Reverend George M. 
Bodge which occurred July 18 at his late home in 
West Roxbury, Mass., not only his personal 
friends but the commonwealth has sustained a 
great loss. He was a true citizen and his sym- 
pathy and love for his fellow men was unbound- 
ed. In every pastorate of which he had charge 
he was much beloved; his genial, happy heart 
won for him the love and good will of all with 
whom he came in contact. 

Mr. Bodge, who was one of the best known 
historical and genealogical authorities in New 
England, was born Feb. 14, 1841 at South Wind- 
ham, Maine, son of Rev. John and Esther Bodge. 
He fitted for college at Bridgton Academy, pay- 
ing his way by teaching. In 1861 he enlisted for 
the Civil War as fife major in the Seventh Maine 
Regiment, serving one year, when he was honor- 
ably discharged on account of ill health. After 
graduating from Bowdoin in the Class of 1868 
he taught successively at Gould's Academy, 
Bethel, Maine; Gorham Seminary, and West- 
brook Seminary. 

After a course at Harvard Divinity School he 
was ordained to the Unitarian ministry in 1878, 
his first pastorate having been with the Third 
Religious Society, Dorchester. In 1894 he began 
a four years' pastorate at the Church of Our 
Father in East Boston. In 1898 he was for a few 
months at the First Parish Church, Leominster. 

During the seven years following 1898 he had 
a church at Westwood. He retired in 1905, but 
had done considerable literary work since. He 
published "The Churchill Family in America" 
and "Soldiers in King Philip's War." 

He belonged to Joseph Hooker Post 23, G.A.R., 
of East Boston, was honorable prelate of William 
Parkman Commandery, K.T., and ex-chaplain of 
the Grand Lodge, K of P. He also belonged to 
the Mayflower Descendants, the Society of Col- 
onial Wars, Sons of the American Revolution, 
the New England Historic Genealogical Society 
and the Piscataqua Pioneers. 

He is survived by his wife, who was Miss Mar- 
garet Wentworth of Brunswick, and by two 
daughters, Mrs. Russell H. Damon of Leominster 
and Mrs. George A. Littlefield of West Roxbury. 

'75. — A monograph on Patents by Charles L. 
Clarke, Esq., of the Consulting Department of 
the General Electric Company, originally issued 
in the General Electric Review, has recently been 
reprinted in separate form. 

'75. — Samuel W. Whitmore sustained a frac- 
ture of the hip and other painful injuries when a 
team attached to a heavy wagon struck him while 



he was riding a bicycle. 

'76. — Rev. George F. Pratt, formerly pastor of 
Christ Church, Dorchester, Mass., has accepted 
a call to the pastorate of the Unitarian Church of 
Sanford. 

'88 and '89.— William T. Hall, Jr., of Bath and 
Freemont J. C. Little of Augusta were recently 
appointed referees in bankruptcy by Judge Clar- 
ence Hale of the U. S. District Court. 

'98.— Mr. and Mrs. Howard R. Ives of Port- 
land are receiving congratulations on the birth 
of a son, Charles Libby Ives. 

'05.— Herbert S. Hill of Wells Beach has been 
chosen by the Board of Trustees of Foxcroft 
Academy as principal of the academy to succeed 
Gardner W. Cole, who resigned at the close of 
the last term. He taught as principal of high 
schools in Cornish and Weymouth until 1909,

BOWDOIN LOSES TO WESLEYAN 

In a closely contested game at Middletown Sat- 
urday, Bowdoin was defeated by Wesleyan by the 
score of 3 to 0. It was not until the last quarter 
that Wesleyan seriously threatened the goal line, 
and then Bowdoin gained the ball on downs and 
punted. A successfully executed forward pass 
carried the ball within reach of the goal posts and 
Captain Keenan accurately sent a drop kick be- 
tween them. The most spectacular play of the 
game was Foster's 60 yard run down the field in 
the second quarter after Hingeley fumbled. It 
looked for a moment as if he had cleared himself 
for a touchdown but Slocum proved the swifter 
and caught him on the 30 yard line. 

Bowdoin relied in the main on straight football, 
playing a conservative game, and uncovered lit- 
tle in the way of open work. 

Wesleyan, on the other hand, used the forward 
and delayed pass continuously and with great 
success, her seven successful forward passes net- 
ting nearly a hundred yards. Keenan, on the 
transmission end of the passes, shot the ball with 
coolness and precision. The delayed passes were 
responsible for a number of short gains. 

Captain Lewis played a wonderful defensive 
game and broke up a number of forward passes. 
Colbath played a consistent game at right half. 

Bowdoin started both halves with a rush and 
carried the ball well in both cases, but fumbles 
lost the ball before Wesleyan's goal was really in 
danger. 

A 20 yard run by Stuart across Wesleyan's 
goal line in the second period was not allowed on 
account of a technicality. The play was one of 
the best exhibitions of open football shown dur- 
ing the afternoon, and but for the unfortunate 
question of the infringement of a minor rule 
would have scored a touchdown for Bowdoin. 

FIRST QUARTER 

Wesleyan won the toss and received in the 
north goal. 

Colbath kicked off to Bovard who took the ball 
to the 12 yard line. Johnson and Keenan ad- 
vanced the ball five yards by line plunges. On 
the third down, Wesleyan lost ground on a fum- 
ble, but retained possession of the ball. On the 
last down, Bowdoin secured the ball on a second 



fumble but immediately lost it. Regaining the 
ball on her own 25 yard line, Wesleyan failed to 
advance the ball more than eight yards and was 
forced to kick. Keenan's punt went to Bowdoin's 
20 yard line. A line plunge in the first down net- 
ted five yards, after which Dyar made a 12 yard 
get away through right tackle. After unsuccess- 
ful forward passes and an end run gaining one 
yard, Lewis punted. Slocum received the ball on 
the 15 yard line and advanced it five yards. 
Hingeley made a good gain and Keenan advanced 
the ball by breaking through to the 30 yard line. 
The first down netted two yards, and a success- 
ful pass, Keenan to Slocum, gave seven yards, 
and then Johnson broke through for a ten yard 
run. This ended the quarter with the ball on 
Bowdoin's 40 yard line in Wesleyan's hands. 

SECOND QUARTER 

The second quarter started with a 17 yard gain 
through a cleverly executed pass from Keenan to 
Nourse. Keenan managed to gain five yards and 
Hingeley made first down. ■ Keenan came in for 
another five yard gain and Johnson secured two 
more. With the ball on the six yard line, Hinge- 
ley fumbled and Foster recovered, making a spec- 
tacular 60 yard run. He reached Wesleyan's 30 
yard line before Slocum caught him. Foster car- 
ried the ball two yards farther through the line. 
The second down gave but one yard. Stuart lost 
on an attempted end run and Lewis was forced to 
punt. This put the ball on Wesleyan's 15 yard 
line. Keenan by successive plunges made first 
down. Johnson hit the line for a one yard gain 
and Keenan broke through for 11 yards. After 
several unsuccessful attempts to advance the ball, 
Wesleyan fumbled, giving Bowdoin the ball in 
the center of the field. Bowdoin fumbled and 
Young recovered the ball on his own 35 yard 
line. After three unsuccessful passes, Keenan 
punted 30 yards to Dyar. Stuart lost six yards, 
leaving the ball on Bowdoin's 28 yard line as the 
half ended. 

THIRD QUARTER 

Captain Keenan kicked off to Stuart who ad- 
vanced the ball ten yards to the 33 yard line. Un- 
able to gain against the Red and Black's stone- 
wall defense, Lewis found it necessary to punt. 
Slocum received the ball on .the 27 yard line but 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



fumbled it when tackled on the 35 yard line. Af- 
ter two downs, Foster made a good gain and 
Dyar carried the ball to the 25 yard line. Sargent 
intercepted a forward pass and crossed three 
lines before brought to the earth. Penalized 20 
yards for being offside, when on her own 30 yard 
line Wesleyan punted to Stuart, who carried Kee- 
nan's 35 yard punt to the 40 yard line. Here 
Bowdoin was penalized for holding and on the 
next play a six yard loss left the ball on the 19 
yard line with 28 to go. 

FOURTH QUARTER 

Stuart started the quarter by punting to Wes- 
leyan's 40 yard line. On the third down with ten 
to go Keenan and Markthaller netted 20 yards 
on a well executed forward pass. Straight plung- 
ing placed the ball on the eight yard line and first 
down. Here Bowdoin rallied and held for the 
first down, gave way to Keenan for two yards 
and allowed Hingeley to get through for three 
more on the third, but held Keenan to a two yard 
gain on the last down. With the ball on Bow- 
doin*s one yard line, Stuart punted out to the 25 
yard mark. A forward pass from Keenan to 
Markthaller netted 13 yards. Dropping back to 
the 25 yard mark, Keenan executed a pretty drop 
kick, the only score of the game. Colbath picked 
to the 25 yard line and Markthaller advanced the 
ball ten yards. Keenan went through the line for 
four and Hingeley made 12. In the center of the 
field two five yard losses and a penalty for hold- 
ing forced the Wesleyan captain to kick. With 
the ball on the ten yard line, Bowdoin attempted 
two forward passes but failed. The ball was in 
Bowdoin's hands on her own eight yard line when 
the whistle blew.

HEBRON 21, BOWDOIN SECOND 

The Bowdoin Second football team lost to He- 
bron Saturday, 21 to o, and though beaten was 
by no means outclassed. The first score came less 
than three minutes after the start of the game, 
when Hebron recovered a poor pass on the seven 
yard line and Jordan pushed the ball across. 

In the second quarter MacCormick ran the ball 
back through a broken field for 25 yards. Wing 
nailed a forward pass for a 25 yard gain. He- 
bron got the ball on an intercepted forward pass 
but was forced to punt. Another forward pass to 
Wing netted 20 yards. Campbell broke a small 
bone in his nose in this play, but refused to leave 
the game. The game ended with the ball on He- 
bron's 30 yard line and the Second team making 
first down repeatedly on a series of line plunges. 

Campbell was the man who stood out most con- 
spicuously by his gritty and brilliant playing. 
Wood and McConaughy were very strong on the 
defense. Jordan was Hebron's star man.

FOOTBALL PROSPECTS 

About 30 men are turning out every afternoon 
for football practice under Coach McCann and 
Trainer Magee. Of last year's team seven vet- 
erans are left. In the backfield H. Foster has 
been playing his old position at left half. Col- 
bath has been shifted to right half, his playing 
showing much improvement over last year. In 
the line, Leadbetter is at end after playing full- 
back in the first game. It is hoped that C. Foster 
will have passed off a condition and will be back 
at the other end before Saturday's game. The 
rest of the line is made up of good heavy men, 
with Captain Lewis at his old position of tackle. 

The two games away have not given the stu- 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



■dents a chance to see the team in action, but cer- 
tain it is the games were between evenly matched 
teams, Bowdoin securing only one touchdown 
against Amherst, and being beaten by Wesleyan 
by only a field goal. The game next Saturday at 
Trinity should prove interesting. Trinity has 
lost her big man, Hudson. The following Satur- 
day Bowdoin plays Boston College at Brunswick. 
Saturday Maine beat this team by the score of 
26-7. 

The men out for football : Captain Lewis, H. 
Foster, Colbath, Leadbetter, Stuart, Brewster, 
Floyd, Beal, Chapman, J. B. Moulton, M. C. 
Moulton, Austin, K. Stone, E. Stone, Campbell, 
Dyar, Shumway, Mannix, Phillips, MacCormick,

Stanley, Peacock. 



ADDITIONAL REGISTRATION 

During the last week three more Freshmen 
have registered: Roderick Prime, Springfield, 
Mass., John A. Totman, Bath, and Joseph S. 
Clark, South Duxbury, Mass. Also Blethen ex- 
? i6 has reentered College as a special. 



FOR THE RED CROSS 

Under the auspices of the local Red Cross so- 
ciety of which Dean Sills is president, collections 
were held in all the Brunswick churches Sunday 
morning and in Chapel in the afternoon. The 
proceeds are to be used for the splendid work of 
the Red Cross in relieving the suffering on Euro- 
pean battlefields. In the contribution at after- 
noon Chapel the sum of $25.06 was received. 



SUNDAY CHAPEL 



President Hyde spoke on The Peace for 
Which We Pray in Sunday Chapel. He said in 
part: 

"The peace for which we pray is not mere ces- 
sation of hostilities. It is the extirpation of the 
false ideals out of which this wanton war was 
born — the will to power rather than the will to 
justice — the doctrine that might rather than rea- 
son is the arbiter of right — the doctrine that a 
treaty is a scrap of paper, and a promise is to be 
kept only so long as it is enforcable by the prom- 
ises — the doctrine that the weak exist at the suf- 
ferance and for the exploitation of the strong. 

"Toward the contending nations and the in- 
dividuals who compose them, we are not merely 
neutral but friendly. And if we pray for Ger- 
many's defeat it is in the longing to deliver her 
from these infernal ideals. This is why, though 



we love Great Britain, France and Russia no 
more than we love Germany and Austria; we 
seek for them righteous, reasonable and Chris- 
tian peace; that is why we pray that the blessing 
of victory may crown the armies whose govern- 
ments are best disposed toward such a peace ; and 
that the blessing of defeat may come to those 
nations whose political ideas unfit them to enter 
into that peace save through the humiliation their 
providentially blundering diplomacy has made 
inevitable." 



ORIENT COMPETITION 

The following men from the Freshman class 
ar e andidates for the Orient: Abbott, Albion, 
Creighton, Gray, Jacob, MacCormick, Mooers, 
Norton, Rounds, Schlosberg and Woodfill. Men 
who wish to go out are urged to hand their names

CROSS COUNTRY 



With the Maine Intercollegiate cross, country 
race but a month off, a large squad of men is at 
work daily under the direction of Trainer Ma- 
gee. The indications are for a much stronger 
team than last year when Bowdoin won third 
place. 

Following his practice of last year, Trainer 
Magee plans to hold -a series of hare and hound 
races. In the first of these last Thursday, Irving 
'16 and Noyes '17 were the hares and succeeded 
in beating the hounds, made up of the rest of the 
squad, back to the field.

Is Proclamation Night Worth While 

Bowdoin, like most old colleges, is rich in tra- 
dition, and proud of her treasure. The stories 
and customs handed down from generation to 
generation seem inseparable from the old brick 
dormitories which have seen so much of college 
life. Yet for all our fostering of tradition, we 
have never hesitated to throw out what has be- 
come useless or inconsistent with the spirit of the 
College. Even a tradition may become unworthy 
of retention, however innocent its beginning. 

We do not know how long the custom of hold- 
ing Proclamation Night has been established. 
Until recent years it was practically the same 
each year. The Sophomore class in a body visit- 
ed the rooms of the Freshman class, decorated 
their trembling bodies with lurid posters, indulged 



in a little harmless horse-play, and left them to 
study the rules of conduct printed on the posters. 

Things have changed in recent years and we 
have come to a point which many think is the cul- 
mination. The intervention of a few Juniors and 
Seniors, attempting to circumvent the Sopho- 
mores, the departure of a large part of the Fresh- 
men for parts unknown so that only a part of the 
class are "posted," the barricading of dormitories 
and the consequent destruction of College and 
private property, all these make us question 
whether Proclamation Night is really worth 
while. 

Perhaps the most serious consideration is the 
destruction of College property. Let us sum up 
the results of "Proc Night" and the barricading 
of one of the ends by Juniors and Seniors. The 
men living in this end were caused discomfort 
and in some cases financial loss. The Faculty 
committee in charge of the buildings and grounds 
was caused inconvenience and labor. The Col- 
lege was caused financial loss. It will probably 
be impossible to fix the blame exactly but the loss 
must be met. If each man in College is charged 
for the average of repairs, an estimated bill of 
$300 for repairs will be met as follows : The two 
upper classes will pay respectively $75 and $80 
for the fun some members of the two classes had ; 
the Sophomores will pay $85 as an additional ex- 
pense of Proclamation Night; the Freshmen will 
pay $130 for the privilege of being posted and 
paddled. From a strictly financial standpoint, is 
it worth while? 

We do not advocate an unregulated or even 
unpaddled Freshman class. We do advocate a 
rational consideration of the old tradition of 
Proclamation Night. If it cannot be held without 
the unfair participation of neutral classes and the 
destruction of College -property, let us substitute 
a more sane and healthy event with which to 
open the year. 



The Seating Problem 

The seating capacity of the Chapel is greatly 
taxed by the coming of larger entering classes 
each year, yet this year the congestion in the 
Freshman and Sophomore forms may easily be 
relieved. The method was pointed out by Presi- 
dent Hyde and the carrying out of his suggestion 
is in the hands of the students, particularly those 
of the two upper classes. Yet these classes have 
not done as suggested, and much of the dignity 
and beauty of the Chapel exercises is destroyed 
by the fact that men of the lower classes must 
sit on steps, floor, or wherever they may find 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



103 



room. The Senior should not theoretically be so 
stricken with bashfulness that he would refuse to 
accept the use of forms situated nearer the plat- 
form than those he is accustomed to, nor can we 
believe that inborn timidity keeps the Juniors 
from occupying part of the Senior forms. Why 
do we not undertake the solution of this student 
problem, which may be so simply and easily set- 
tled? 



WAR CARRIED ON U. S. SOIL 

After a brilliant advance from the north, the 
invading Sophomores were checked at South Ap- 
pleton on Friday night and a stubborn defense by 
the allies kept the attacking force at a distance. 
Time after time assaulting bands were driven 
back with great loss of temper and much wetness 
of sweaters. The officers of the Sophomore class 
stated officially that divine aid was theirs. A 
sortie by Freshmen proved a failure when the 
Freshmen took to the woods. Finally the invad- 
ers effected entrance and speedily gained posses- 
sion. Nickerson '16 and Haseltine '17 broke the 
loop-the-loop record in a death clinch tumble 
down the stairs. Early Saturday morning Jim 
McBain picked up a bucketful of broken noses. 



FRESHMEN WIN FIRST GAME 

The Freshman nine defeated the Sophomores 
1 1 to 4 Saturday morning on the Delta in the first 
game of the series in which the team winning two 
games out of three is "champion." The Fresh- 
man pitchers, Pendleton and Smethurst, were in 
fine form, and held the Sophomores to five hits.

FLAG RUSH 



The Sophomores were successful in defending 
the banner in the flag rush following the Fresh- 
man-Sophomore game Saturday. The banner 
was suspended between two trees at a height of 
about twenty feet, and the Sophomores gathered 
at the foot of trees whose trunks were greased. 
At the firing of a revolver, the Freshmen charged 
in a wedge formation from the opposite side of 
the Delta but were unsuccessful in scaling the 
slippery trunk. 



Y.M.C.A. NOTES 



The Y.M.C.A. has started its year with an en- 
rollment of 255, a record for the Association, 
and 20 more than last year. 

Bible study classes for Freshmen were started 
in the fraternity houses and dormitories Sunday, 
with a special class for upper classmen con- 
ducted in the Church on the Hill Sunday morn- 
ing by President Hyde. 

David R. Porter '06 spoke at the first Y.M.C.A. 
meeting of the year held Thursday night in the 
Y.M.C.A. room. 



FRESHMAN MEETING 



Last Tuesday night in Hubbard Hall, under the 
auspices of the Y.M.C.A., a meeting was held 
for the benefit of the entering class. Various 
upper-classmen connected with the principal col- 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



lege activities explained the method which Fresh- 
men use in going out for any activity. All the 
speakers emphasized the need of every man's 
participating in some college activity. The fol- 
lowing officers were elected : B. A. Thomas, 
chairman ; Donnell, captain of baseball ; Call, 
manager of baseball ; G. A. Allen, captain of 
track ; French, manager of track. 



MASQUE AND GOWN 

The Masque and Gown held its first meeting 
of the college year last Thursday evening. It 
was decided to repeat as the fall play, "The Mar- 
riage of Kitty," in addition to the regular Ivy and 
Commencement productions. A trip to several 
cities in central Maine about the first of Novem- 
ber is planned and at Thanksgiving time a trip 
including a few Massachusetts cities and New 
York. After the Thanksgiving recess, rehearsals 
will at once be started for the Ivy play which may 
also be taken on a trip. The cast for "The Mar- 
riage of Kitty" lost one man by graduation last 
June, and trials for this part will be held at Me- 
morial Hall this evening at 7.30 o'clock. 

According to an amendment of the constitution 
made last spring, the assistant manager this year 
will be chosen from the Sophomore class and an 
election will be held before Christmas. 

The club is very fortunate to secure the ser- 
vices of Mrs. Arthur Brown as coach for the sea- 
son of 1914-15.

COMMUNICATION 

To the Editor of the Orient: 

The Commencement number of the Orient 
contained a condensed report of the Treasurer of 
the Masque and Gown, signed by the Faculty 
Auditor. To those who do not know Mr. 
Crowell one item in the report as printed might 
easily be misleading. It was this: "April 17, C. 
R. Crowell, Portland Trip Expenses, $15.00" 
This should have been printed Cash and Port- 
land Trip Expenses," the "Cash" being money 
which Mr. Crowell advanced in order to make 
change in selling tickets in Portland. I sincerely 
hope this will correct any false conclusious con- 
cerning Mr. Crowell' s extravagance in traveling, 
if any were drawn. 

Yours very truly, 
Wilmot B. Mitchell, Faculty Auditor

Resolutions 

IN MEMORIAM 

The twentieth reunion of Bowdoin '94, last 
June, the largest and best gathering the class has 
ever held, was saddened beyond our power to ex- 
press by the sudden death of Ralph P. Plaisted, 
June 23, 1914, on the very eve of his leaving 
home to join us. 

Our memories of him are wonderfully vivid : 
In college days a vigorous and assertive spirit, 
leader in activities, an athlete and the premier 
baseball pitcher of our time, a hard and fearless, 
but ever a clean, fighter ; — In his later manhood, 
a model citizen, cool and resourceful in time of 
personal danger, undaunted by misfortune, an 
upright judge placing justice above legal techni- 
calities ; — Throughout life, an earnest Christian 
and supremely loyal friend. 

No one among our number will be missed more 
keenly in the days and years before us. 
For the Class, 

Chas. A. FlagGj 
Secretary.

gret of the death of another of her beloved alum- 
ni, Brother Joseph Williamson of the class of

lege activity. Three years after graduation 
Brother Williamson was admitted to the Maine

sion. In recognition of his ability he was chosen 
for the public utilities commission and also a 
member of the Board of Overseers of Bowdoin 
College. Therefore be it 

Resolved, That Theta Chapter of Delta Kappa 
Epsilon extend its deep sympathy to his bereaved 
family, and great host of friends.

'69. — Frederic Henry Boardman died at his 
home in Tonka Bay on May 15, following an ill- 
ness of six months. He was born in St. Stevens, 
N. B., on April 25, 1848. After graduation from 
college he studied law with the late E. B. Harvey 
of Calais and was engaged in mercantile business 
there for a few years. In 1875 he removed to 
Minneapolis where he began the practice of law. 
He was a member of the Minnesota Legislature, 
1882-83, and County Attorney, 1900-1904. As a 
lawyer he was successful and honored by the 
members of the profession. He is survived by his 
widow, who was Miss Hattie Boutelle of Bruns- 
wick, a son Ralph B. Boardman, a daughter Mrs. 
H. K. Zuppinger, and two brothers, W. B. Board- 
man of Minneapolis, and A. J. Boardman of the 
class of 1873, of Los Angeles. 

'88. — Joseph Williamson was born in Belfast, 
Maine, February 14, 1869, the son of Joseph and 
Ada Hortense (Pierce) Williamson. He re- 
ceived his early education at Belfast High School. 
While in college Mr. Williamson played on the 
varsity baseball team and was a member of Delta 
Kappa Epsilon fraternity. Following graduation 
he was a newspaper reporter in Augusta, 1888-9. 
He studied law at Boston University and was ad- 
mitted to the bar at Belfast in 1891. Mr. Wil- 
liamson practiced his profession at Belfast, 1891- 
93, and at Augusta since 1893 as a member of the 
firms of Williamson & Burleigh, and of William- 
son, Burleigh & McLean. He was married Nov. 
19, 1891 to Vallery, second daughter of Hon. E. 
C. Burleigh of Augusta, and has two sons, Wil- 
liam Williamson of Portland, and Robert Wil- 
liamson of Augusta. He was a member of Trin- 
ity Commandery, K.T., Calanthe Lodge, K. of P., 
and Augusta Lodge, B.P.O.E., a trustee of the 
Lithgow Public Library and of Augusta Trust 
Co., Stockton Springs Trust Co., and Waldo 
Trust Co., at Belfast and was recently elected a 
member of the Board of Overseers of the Col- 
lege. He was City Clerk of Augusta in 1906, 
alderman in 1909 and 1910, for many years a 
member of the Democratic City Committee, a 
member of the House in the 75th Legislature, a 
former County Attorney, and a member of the 
Public Utilities Commission. His death by sui- 
cide on July 30, due to failing health and mental 
fatigue, is a great loss to his profession, to the 
state and to the College as well as to his family 
which survives him. 

'94. — Ralph Parker Plaisted was born in Ban- 
gor on March 17, 1871, the son of the late Gen. 
Harris M. Plaisted, who was Governor of Maine 
in 1881, and Sarah (Mason) Plaisted. He at- 



tended the public schools of Bangor until 1883, 
when the family removed to Augusta, and fin- 
ished his early education in that city. At Bow- 
doin he was very prominent and for four years 
was pitcher of the varsity baseball team. He was 
a member of Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity. 
After graduation he entered Albany Law School, 
receiving his LL.B. degree in 1897, and was ad- 
mitted to the Maine bar in the same year. In 
1898 and 1899 he travelled in Europe, and then 
took up the practice of law in Bangor. In 1905 
he was elected City Clerk and again in 1906. In 
the spring of 191 1 he was appointed recorder of 
the Bangor Municipal Court and on December 
29, 1912, as judge of that court, which position he 
held at the time of his death. Judge Plaisted was 
a devoted member of St. John's Episcopal 
Church, a member of St. Andrews Lodge, F. and 
A. M., Mount Moriah Royal Arch Chapter, 
Henry V. Staples Camp, Sons of Veterans, the 
Madockawando Club, the Conduskeag Canoe and 
Country Club, secretary of the Associated Chari- 
ties, a director of the Young Men's Christian As- 
sociation, and a member of the International, 
American, and Maine Bar Associations. His 
death on June 23, which occurred by the capsiz- 
ing of his canoe while paddling in the Penobscot 
River above Bangor, meant a great loss to his 
home community and is particularly sad in that 
he just made preparations to go to Brunswick to 
Commencement and to the 20th anniversary of 
his class. 

'02. — Benjamin E. Kelley of Greenwich, Conn., 
has purchased the Boothbay Register, a weekly 
paper published in Boothbay for many years by

wich News of Greenwich, Conn., and correspon- 
dent of several New York papers. 

'04. — John W. Frost, son of Capt. and Mrs. W. 
E. Frost of Topsham, and Miss Christina Gurlitz,

ents, 109 Clark Street, Brooklyn Heights, N. Y.„ 
and was conducted by Rev. T. H. Landon, D.D., 
of Bordentown, N. J., assisted by Rev. C. B. Em- 
erson of Detroit, Mich.

BOWDOIN LOSES TO TRINITY 

In a poorly played game at Hartford Saturday, 
Bowdoin lost to Trinity, 21 to 7. The day was a 
warm one for football and both teams lacked 
"pep." Until the final period, however, the game 
was close in score, each team scoring seven points 
in the first half of the game. An intercepted for- 
ward pass and a blocked punt, the second with 
but a minute to play, gave Trinity a commanding 
lead, however. Both of these plays came within 
Bowdoin's 20-yard line. 

Bowdoin 's touchdown was made by Herb Fos- 
ter who nailed a Trinity forward pass on his own 
ten yard line and ran the length of the field for a 
touchdown. 

For Bowdoin, Leadbetter and Brewster played 
wonderful games, especially on the defensive, 
while Leadbetter was Bowdoin's strong man on 
the offensive. 

Trinity's team is weaker than that of last sea- 
son but her men worked well together and un- 
covered some bewildering delayed and double 
passes that the Bowdoin line could not solve. 

Neither side was successful with the forward 
pass to any extent although both teams tried this 
play a number of times. 

The game in detail : 

FIRST QUARTER 

Colbath kicked to Cole who made eight yards 
but fumbled on the next play. Trinity recovered 
and Howell kicked. Cole fell on a Bowdoin fum- 
ble. Ives made first down. Cole made four. Ives 
failed to gain. Trinity was unsuccessful in a for- 
ward pass and Kinney attempted a place kick, 
which was blocked. It was Bowdoin's ball on her 
own 20 yard line. After Leadbetter had made 
three, Colbath punted to Ives, who ran the ball 
back three. Connors, Smith and Cole made first 
down. Howell made ten and Connors 12. End 
of first quarter. 

SECOND QUARTER 

Smith made four on a delayed pass, Cole made 
four more, and then, on a delayed pass, Smith 
made Trinity's first touchdown. Kinney kicked 
the goal. 

Colbath kicked to Smith who put the ball down 
for a touchback. Connors made three and Smith 
seven for first down. Castator made two. Trin- 



ity was penalized 15 for holding. Howell punted 
to Foster who made five. Colbath made two, 
Foster three and Stuart five for first down. Col- 
bath made two on a short forward pass and Fos- 
ter ten. After two unsuccessful passes Colbath 
attempted a place kick but failed and the ball 
went to Trinity on her own 20 yard line. Smith, 
Connors and Howell made first down in three 
rushes. Ives made eight. Here the half ended. 

THIRD QUARTER 

Kinney kicked off to Leadbetter who made ten 
yards. Stuart fumbled but recovered. A bad 
pass to Lewis resulted in a ten yard loss and 
Lewis punted. It was Trinity's ball on Bowdoin's 
16 yard line. Campbell went in for B. Moulton. 
Smith made eight yards in two rushes but Con- 
nors and Castator failed to gain and Bowdoin 
got the ball on downs. 

After Stuart had failed to gain, Lewis punted 
to Ives who ran back 20 yards. Howell made 
three. Bowdoin was penalized five for being off 
side. Smith and Connors advanced five, and then 
Herb Foster caught a forward pass from Smith 
and ran 90 yards for a touchdown. Leadbetter 
kicked the goal. 

Kinney kicked to Leadbetter who carried the 
ball back ten. Foster made two. Craig went in 
for Smith. Leadbetter punted to Ives. After 
three downs, Trinity punted and on the next play 
was penalized five yards for being off side. This 
ended the third quarter. 

FOURTH QUARTER 

Trinity was penalized ten for holding. Ives 
fumbled and lost eight. Craig punted to Stuart 
who ran the ball back 25. Bowdoin was unsuc- 
cessful in two forward passes and lost six on the 
next play. Lewis punted out of danger to Ives. 
Evans went in for Cole. Trinity was penalized 
five because Evans did not report. Craig punted. 
Mannix went in for Foster. Bowdoin failed to 
execute a forward. Trinity was penalized five; 
Bowdoin was thrown back five. Lewis punted to 
Ives who was downed in his tracks. Craig and 
Castator made one each and after Ives had at- 
tempted a forward pass, Craig punted to Bow- 
doin's 20 yard line. 

Howell caught a Bowdoin forward pass and 
ran 15 yards. On the next play Castator pushed

the ball over for a touchdown. Kinney kicked 
the goal. 

Kinney kicked off and Bowdoin placed the ball 
down for a touchback. After two downs with no 
gain, Lewis punted. Churchill went in for Evans. 
Bowdoin blocked Kinney's place kick and after 
an unsuccessful forward pass, Lewis punted. 
Kinney blocked the kick and the ball bounded in 
back of the goal line where Lambert fell on it for 
a touchdown. Kinney kicked the goal. 

Shumway went in for Floyd. Colbath kicked 
to Castator but time was called for the end of the 
game.

FOOTBALL PROSPECTS 

The Bowdoin football team plays its first home 
game of the season next Saturday with Boston 
College. Only meager opportunity has been 
given to see the team in action and the students 
are looking forward to seeing Saturday's game. 

After the defeat at the hands of Trinity, pros- 
pects do not look so bright as they did a week ago 
after well-fought games with Amherst and Wes- 
leyan but those in charge of the team feel that in 
another week a more finished article of football 
will be presented. 

Coach McCann has had a particularly light 
squad to work with and has been obliged to shift 
his men around considerably in order to get the 
best results. The most important of these, per- 
haps, has been in the change of Leadbetter from 
end to fullback. This should strengthen the team 
greatly, and although Leadbetter is unaccustomed 
to this position, he seems in a way to make a sec- 
ond Hudson. This leaves the end position rather 
weak, however, and both Floyd and Chapman, 
who have been playing on the wings, are new 
there. Clif Foster, who played in a number of 



games last year, has been ineligible up until a few 
days ago but should be in condition to go in by 
the time of the Boston College game. 

Colbath's shift from full to half back seems a 
wise move on the part of the wily McCann. Col- 
bath's work at half is much superior to that he 
offered at fullback last year. In the Amherst 
game in particular he distinguished himself when 
he ran half the length of the field for a touch- 
down. 

At the other half Herb Foster has been playing 
his usual brilliant game. On the defensive he has 
broken up the forward passes around his end and 
last Saturday ran the length of the field for a 
touchdown. In making this long run he strained 
a small muscle in his stomach and will be kept 
out of practice the first of the week for fear of 
more serious injury. With the Maine series less 
than two weeks away, Coach McCann and Train- 
er Magee do not intend to take any chances with 
their men. 

Stuart has shown up better at quarter than he 
did last year and looks fair to hold down the po- 
sition for the remainder of the season. Shumway 
has played a little at quarter and last Saturday 
got into the game for a few minutes at end. 

In the line Captain Lewis, Manning Moulton, 
Burleigh Moulton, Brewster and Stone have been 
playing regularly. Campbell, a new man at foot- 
ball, got into his first varsity game Saturday at 
center and played well on the defensive but his 
passes were poor. 

Among the more promising Freshmen that are 
out are Nevens and Young, candidates for the 
backfield and line respectively. 

As a rule the team came through last Satur- 
day's game in good condition and hard work is 
probably the lot for this week with a lay-off on 
Friday. It is not known if there will be secret 
practice this week. 

Bates, Colby and Maine have been showing up 
well in early season games although it is prob- 
able that no one of the three colleges has a won- 
derful team. Thus far, however, Bowdoin has 
not played any of the teams played by the other 
three colleges and it is difficult to get a line on the 
comparative merits of the team. 



FIRST FOOTBALL RALLY 

The first football rally of the year will be Fri- 
day night in Memorial Hall. This will also be 
the first opportunity this fall to practice the 
cheers. Among the speakers will be Tom Mc- 
Cann and Jack Magee. The band will make its 
initial appearance of the fall.

The First Home Game 

This Saturday, after three games played away 
from home, the football team plays its first home 
game. Those who have watched the excellent 
fighting spirit displayed by the team, in spite of 
the long tiring trips, are eager to see it in action 
on Whittier Field, especially since this will be 
the last chance to get a line on the team before 
the opening of the Maine series. 

The student body will have its first chance to 
give the team the extra advantage that the sup- 
port of the cheering section gives. To a team of 
veterans, who have heard the cheering section 
through several seasons, this support does not 
mean as much as to a team such as we have this 
year. A great many of the men are comparative- 
ly new to varsity football, and to these men the 



cheering section gives the confidence and fight of 
which they may be robbed by inexperience. 

At the rally Friday night, special stress will be 
laid on the cheering. Most of the Freshmen do 
not know the cheers and if the cheering section 
is to be a unit, they must have practice. An en- 
thusiastic and well-attended rally Friday will 
mean starting the team off with a rush on the last 
lap before the championship series. 



Freshman Athletics 

Coaches, captains and managers are deploring 
the fact that from the largest class that ever en- 
tered Bowdoin less men have come out for ath- 
letic teams than ever before. On being asked 
why they do not come out, the Freshmen reply 
that they have to study too much. 

Last year the Freshman class turned out a 
cross-country team which won the inter-class 
race. This year there are not enough Freshmen 
out for a class team. Last year the Freshmen 
relay team defeated Bates '17 twice, breaking the 
tradition of several years. No opportunity for 
relay work has been given yet, but the record set' 
by the predecessors should prove a spur to gen- 
eral track work in the fall. In football, the ma- 
terial which must be in the class is unavailable 
for the same reason which has kept Freshmen 
from answering the call for track candidates. 

Nobody will ask the Freshmen class to let their 
studies go and give up their time to athletics. Yet 
we do look forward to this class to contribute a 
large number of athletes, and we expect these 
men to learn as others have done that one may 
devote time to both studies and athletics and do 
well in both. 

The average Freshman cannot devote his after- 
noons to athletics because he plans to study then. 
When afternoon comes he lets his studies go un- 
til evening and spends the afternoon "puttering 
around." A little planning of hours for work will 
enable any man to take the exercise which he will 
normally take in a day all at one time in trying 
for a college team. 

If you are a Freshman, plan to study at a cer- 
tain time and study at that time ; plan to exercise 
at a certain time and go out for some team at that 
time. You will find your power to concentrate 
and your ability to make the hours you study 
count increasing as the rush of the first few 
weeks grows less.

SOPHOMORES COME BACK 

The Sophomores defeated the Freshmen 6 to 1 

in the second game of the series, played on the 



Delta Wednesday afternoon. The game was 
called in the last half of the fifth, on account of 
darkness. The pitching of Marston featured the 
game, as he allowed only one hit in the five in- 
nings. The Sophomores bunched their hits on 
Pendleton in the second, gaining three runs. 
Goodskey and Bartlett featured for the Sopho- 
mores, both at bat and in the field. Woodman 
played a good game for the Freshmen, getting the 
only safe hit off Marston.

the forenoon at the Congregational Church and 
in the afternoon at the Chapel. At 7 o'clock he 
will be at the Delta Upsilon house for an infor- 
mal hour. At noon Dr. Fitch will speak infor- 
mally in rear of Congregational Church on "The 
College Man and the Ministry." All students are 
invited. This takes the place of President Hyde's 
Bible class of that day, when President Hyde is 
to be the college preacher at Mount Holyoke. 



Y. M. C. A. NOTES 

The English for Foreigners classes will be 
started the first of November. Men who will act 
as teachers are asked to consult the chairman, 
Bacon '15. It is hoped to open classes in Bath. 

The next Y.M.C.A. meeting will be a students' 
meeting, with addresses by various undergrad- 
uates. This will be on Tuesday evening, Oct. 20. 



Cluo anO Council Sheetings 

The following committees of the Student Coun- 
cil have been appointed: 

Rally — -McWilliams '15, chairman; Eaton '15,

The first fall meeting of the Track Club was 
held at the Psi U house last Thursday evening. 
Manager Chase presided and explained the pur- 
pose of the club to the Freshmen and Captain 
McKenney told what was expected of them in 
athletics at Bowdoin. Coach Magee discussed 
various plans for getting out new men. After a 
consideration of the fall track schedule the meet- 
ing adjourned. The next meeting will be held in 
about two weeks. 

The Bugle Board met at the Deke house Fri- 
day and talked over plans for this year's publica- 



tion. The Board approved the contracts made by 
Manager Fuller. 



€be Dt&er Colleges 

For the purpose of successfully contesting fire 
among the college buildings and fraternity houses 
at Williams, the students have organized them- 
selves into four divisions with a distinct territory 
for each one. Each division is headed by a cap- 
tain, who superintends the drill, and sees that all 
the equipment is in a serviceable condition. 

Every Dartmouth Freshman has an advisor in 
the person of a member of the faculty who acts 
as an intermediary for him in dealings with the 
administration, and gives him the benefit of ex- 
pert advice in all cases when called upon. 

Compulsory chapel has been inaugurated at the 
University of Pennsylvania. 

The effect of the war on foreign universities 
is shown in the case of Oxford University, which 
will open with an undergraduate body of only 
one thousand. Those absent on military service, 
however, will suffer no loss of academic standing, 
the time spent in war counting as time in resi- 
dence at Oxford. 

All undergraduate activities at Dartmouth are 
under the direct control of the "Non-Athletic 
Council." It consists of seven members, three 
from the faculty, three from the undergraduates 
and one from the alumni. This body governs the 
musical and dramatic clubs, social affiairs, and 
publications. 

Each year the college agency committee at 
Wesleyan names certain students as college 
agents for certain articles. The so-named col- 
lege agent is the only undergraduate who is per- 
mitted to sell the thing for which he has the 
agency. The basis of appointment is : first, finan- 
cial need of the student; second, scholarship; 
third, rank in college activities. The agent is ex- 
pected to develop his agency and push it. Un- 
dergraduates usually patronize fellow students, 
in preference to outsiders. 

The annual tug of war between the Sopho- 
mores and Freshmen of Reed College has a 
unique feature. The tug is carried on with the 
contestants on both sides of a shallow body of 
water, so that the losing team is ignominiously 
dragged through the pool. The icy bath, which 
is sure to come to one or the other of the teams, 
always draws a large body of spectators. 

The University of Oxford has announced ex- 
tensive plans for instruction in the causes of the 
European war through popular lecture courses 
throughout Great Britain. The regular history

lecturers of the university will give these courses. 

By mutual agreement among the fraternities 
of Western Reserve University, no Freshman 
may he entertained over night at any fraternity 
house between the day of his registration and 
pledging. 

The faculty of Tufts College have instituted a 
new rule for the aid of students who are in dan- 
ger of probation on account of their studies. In 
the future a man who is nearing the probation 
mark will be warned in sufficient time to allow 
him to escape the blow, if he studies hard enough.

The Brunswick Record last week in its editorial 
columns said, "'In the interests of good will and 
pleasant relations, we suggest to the Student 
Council that their rules should provide that the 
rights of citizens of the town be respected by the 
members of the college. Posting a Freshman 
proclamation upon a school building, for instance, 
is a defacement of public property, which we be- 
lieve the best sentiments of the undergraduates 
would wish to prevent. The Council has a re- 
sponsibility for good order, and should exercise 
its authority as far as possible when needed." 



Resolutions 

Hall of Theta of Delta Kappa Epsilon, 

September 28, 1914. 

It is with deep regret that Theta Chapter of 
Delta Kappa Epsilon learns of the death of 
Brother Ralph Parker Plaisted of the class of 

1894. 

As an undergraduate Brother Plaisted was 
prominent both in college and fraternity activity. 
After graduation he received the degree of LL.B. 
fiom Albany Law School and has since been 
prominent as a lawyer not only in Bangor but the 
State of Maine. Therefore be it 

Resolved, That Theta Chapter extend its sym- 
pathy to his bereaved family and many friends. 
George Albert Hall, 
Laurence Irving, 
Donald Ward Philbrick, 
For the Chapter. 



Hall of Eta of Theta Delta Chi. 

October 7, 1914. 

In the passing to Omega Charge of Brother 
George Whitney Merrill of the Class of 1859 and 
Brother Lorin Farr of the Class of 1861, Eta 
Charge of Theta Delta Chi has lost two of its 
members who fought for the preservation of the 
Union. Brother Merrill left the service with the 
rank of brevet major. After the war he held a 
number of political offices, and in 1885 he was ap- 
pointed minister to Hawaii by President Cleve- 
land. On leaving the army Brother Farr was the 
ranking captain in his corps. He resided in St. 
Louis for a short time and later returned to 
Maine, where he continued his practice in the 
legal profession and also engaged in literary 
work. 

Realizing our loss in the deaths of our two 
brothers, we have therefore : 

Resolved, That we express our deepest sorrow 



and extend our sincere sympathy to those bound 
to them by ties of, family and friendship. 
Dana Kinsman Merrill, 
Arthur Eldredge Littlefield, 
Kenneth George Stone, 

For the Charge.

BOWDOIN DEFEATS BOSTON COLLEGE 

Playing straight football on a wet field, Bow- 
doin won the first home game of the season from 
Boston College Saturday, 20 to o. Necessarily 
slow and ragged at times, the Bowdoin back field 
in the first half showed unexpected energy on the 
offensive and carried the ball down the field for 
two touchdowns, the third coming through Fos- 
ter's recovery of Lewis's punt. The quartet, 
Shumway at quarter, Nevens at left half, Stuart 
at right half and Colbath at full back, made a 
much better showing than any of the previous ex- 
periments in the back field this year. 

In the second half, with several substitutes 
playing, there was no more scoring but Boston 
College never seriously threatened Bowdoin's 
goal, only once getting to the 20 yard line. 

Owing to the wet conditions there was little 
open play and Boston College made the only suc- 
cessful forward pass of the game. The muddy 
field and slippery ball prevented any really fast 
work while a number of excusable fumbles hurt 
the work of both teams. Bowdoin tried the for- 
ward pass but once while the Bostonians resorted 
to that play half a dozen times. Bowdoin showed 
ability to break up this play. In rushing, Bow- 
doin made 150 yards and Boston College only 20 
yards. Bowdoin made first down almost at will, 
Boston College not once. In punting also, Bow- 
doin's kickers had slightly the better of it. 

The star of the game was Nevens, who, al- 
though bothered by a bad carbuncle on the neck, 
proved the best ground gainer for Bowdoin and 
compared well- with Lewis in punting. Stuart 
also made good gains until he was injured in the 
second period. A blood vessel was burst in his 
wrist, which, together with a sprain, may keep 
him from the game for some time. Shumway 
showed well at quarter and will probably hold 
that position. Colbath's try for a field goal from 
the 45 yard line was remarkably close considering 
the heavy condition of the ball and the wet field. 
The line played good football, Brewster and 
Leadbetter showing up particularly well. 

For Boston College, Duffy proved the best 
ground-gainer. It is feared Bradley's injury in 
the first period will be serious. 
The game in detail follows : 



FIRST QUARTER. 

Colbath started the game by kicking over the 
goal line. Boston College then began scrimmage 
from the 20 yard line, Kiley making no gain. 
Duffy lost four and Maloney kicked to Nevens. 
whose fumble gave. Boston College an open field 
for a touchdown, Brewster saving the day by 
tackling from behind. Duffy lost one, Kiley lost 
ten on a fumble, and Maloney kicked to Nevens 
on the 40 yard line, who carried the ball to the 
center of the field. Stuart gained 11 yards in two 
rushes, Colbath four and Nevens six for first 
down. Stuart made two, Shumway seven and 
Xevens first down again. Stuart gained five, re- 
covered Nevens's fumble and made first down in 
two rushes. After Shumway failed to gain, Nev- 
ens carried the ball across for the first touch- 
down. Leadbetter's try for a goal failed by 
inches. Score : Bowdoin 6, Boston College o. 

O'Connor kicked to Shumway on the 25 yard 
line, who ran it back 20 yards. Nevens made 
nine around right end and then fumbled to Bos- 
ton College. Kiley made three yards, Duffy no 
gain, Maloney kicked to Nevens on the 25 yard 
line. Stuart lost six, Nevens made two and Lewis 
punted to Conboy on the 45 yard line. Kiley lost 
four, Bradley gained five, Maloney kicked to 
Nevens on the 25 yard line. Stuart made 15 
yards on a pretty end run. Craven replaced 
Bradley. Shumway gained five and on the next 
play recovered a poor pass for a loss. Lewis 
kicked to Boston's 47 yard line. Craven gained 
five yards and the period ended with the ball on 
Boston's 42 yard line. 

SECOND QUARTER. 

The Bay Staters opened the second with a for- 
ward pass which Stuart intercepted. After two 
slight gains by Stuart, Nevens recovered a poor 
pass and kicked, Lewis getting the ball on Bos- 
ton's fumble on their 15 yard line. Colbath 
gained two around right end and Nevens smashed 
through center for 13 yards for his second touch- 
down. Lewis kicked out to Stuart and Leadbetter 
kicked the goal. Score: Bowdoin 13, Boston Col- 
lege 0. 

O'Connor kicked off to Nevens who made a 
brilliant run back of 35 yards only to fumble when 
tackled in the center of the field. After Duffy 



n8 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



made a yard, Twitchell, who had replaced Ma- 
loney, twice tried a forward pass unsuccessfully, 
Shumway getting the second one on the 43 yard 
line. Mannix replaced Stuart, playing quarter 
and Shumway dropped back to right half. Man- 
nix fumbled, Bowdoin was penalized 15 yards for 
holding and Nevens punted 35 yards. Then came 
the only successful forward pass of the game, 
Kiley to Twitchell for two yards. Lewis tackled 
Kiley for a loss of six yards and Boston punted 
to Shumway who ran the ball back to the 45 yard 
line. Shumway made four, Mannix lost three, 
Nevens made five, Lewis kicked to Twitchell on 
Boston's 15 yard line. Foster recovered the lat- 
ter's fumble and carried the ball across for the 
third touchdown. Leadbetter kicked the goal. 
Score : Bowdoin 20, Boston College o. 

Chapman replaced Floyd. O'Connor kicked 
to Lewis who gained ten. Colbath made one and 
Mannix five. Bowdoin here refused a penalty 
for off side. Mannix gained three and Shumway 
made first down. The half ended with the ball 
Bowdoin's on Boston's 38 yard line. 

THIRD QUARTER. 

Campbell replaced Stone; Dyar went in for 
Nevens, and Maloney for Twitchell. Colbath 
kicked off to Kiley on the 30 yard line. Craven 
was held for no gain and Duffy lost eight on a 
tackle by Chapman. Shumway recovered the 
kick on the 48 yard line. Dyar fumbled to Ma- 
loney. Shumway intercepted Maloney's pass on 
the 34 yard line. Dyar made three, Colbath four 
and Mannix lost two. Boston College was penal- 
ized five for being off side. Dyar was tackled for 
no gain; Mannix lost two. Lewis lost ten on a 
poor pass and on the next play punted to Ma- 
loney on the 30 yard line. Duffy and Craven 
gained two and Maloney kicked to Mannix. 
Shumway fumbled to Rogers, Duffy lost four and 
Maloney kicked to Mannix on the 20 yard line. 
Mannix gained two, Colbath one and Shumway 
six on a delayed pass. 

FOURTH QUARTER. 

In the last quarter Nevens took Dyar's place, 
Wood replaced Foster and Stone returned to cen- 
ter. Mannix and Shumway gained two in three 
rushes and Nevens kicked to Maloney on the 30 
yard line. Duffy made six and Craven one. 
Kiley lost two on a tackle by Leadbetter. Ma- 
loney kicked. Nevens made one, Colbath lost 
three. MacCormick replaced Mannix. Nevens 
lost three and was forced to punt. Lewis kicked 
to Maloney who caught the ball on the 28 yard 
line and was immediately tackled by Wood. 
Duffy's pass failed and Maloney's try was inter- 
cepted by MacCormick. Nevens made six, Col- 



bath two, Nevens one, Shumway made first down. 
Colbath lost three, Nevens failed to gain. Dris- 
coll replaced Rogers. After Bowdoin's only for- 
ward pass failed, Colbath's try for a goal from 
the 45 yard line failed by the width of the up- 
right. Kiley made four. Mannix went in for 
Nevens, Stanley for Wood, Austin for Brewster, 
Young for Moulton, and B. Moulton for Lead- 
better. Craven made three. Oliver replaced 
Lewis. Twitchell kicked to Mannix and the game 
ended with the ball in the center of the field.

FOOTBALL NEWS 



The Maine state football series starts Saturday 
when Bowdoin plays Colby at Brunswick and 
Bates plays Maine at Lewiston. Little opportun- 
ity has been given thus far to compare the work 
of the two teams. 

With a veteran team from last season, Colby 
is thought to have an extremely strong eleven. 
Just what the fleet-footed Fraser and Lowney 
will be able to accomplish will depend in great 
part on the Bowdoin ends for it is very probable 
that Colby will rely to a great extent on end runs. 

Thus far this season Colby has played four 
games and has won three of them by the follow- 
ing scores: Colby 17, Holy Cross o; Colby 66, 
New Hampshire State o; Colby 6, Massachusetts 
"Aggies" 0. Colby was beaten by Tufts, 40 to 14. 

Bowdoin's backfield has been crippled by acci- 
dents during the past two weeks, but with the 
possible exception of Stuart, the backfield should 
be in fine condition again by next Saturday. 
Stuart sprained his wrist in the Boston College 
game and at the same time broke a blood vessel. 
He was forced to leave the game and has been

Herb Foster Will be Back in Game Saturday 

obliged to carry his arm in a sling. It is doubt- 
ful if he is in condition by the end of this week 
but should be in shape again in time for the Bates 
game. 

Herb Foster, who strained a muscle over a 
week ago, will be back in the game. His pres- 
ence will strengthen the team greatly, both on de- 
fensive and offensive work. Mannix will prove 
a valuable substitute in case Foster is unable to 
play and may play either quarter or half back. 

Nevens, the Freshman half back, played a stel- 
lar game Saturday. He was handicapped by a 
carbuncle on the back of his neck, and though 
this has been painful, it is not serious and in a 
few more days will be practically well. 

One of the surprises of the Boston College 
game was the work of Shumway at quarter. 
While he was at half back Shumway did not play 
so well, as he is not used to that position, but 
while playing quarter he ran the team smoothly 
and handled the ball well himself. 

Upsetting all previous dope Coach McCann 
shifted Colbath from half back to his old position 
of full back and returned Leadbetter to the line, 
which was weakened by his absence. Colbath 




Leadbetter Playing Star Game at Tackle 

played a good game Saturday and his attempt at 
a goal from placement from near the center of 
the field last Saturday failed by the narrowest 
margin, striking the lower side of the crossbar. 

For end positions, four men, Floyd, Wood, 
Chapman and Foster are all likely .candidates and 
all are playing well. Foster is the only varsity 
man of the four but the others are all strong. 
Wood in particular is good on the offensive and 
his defensive work is fully up to that of the oth- 
ers. Floyd and Chapman gave a good account of 
themselves against Boston College. At present 
it is impossible to say who will start next Satur- 
day. 

Lewis and Leadbetter will probably be fixtures 
at tackles for the remainder. Lewis will prob- 
ably share the punting with Nevens. 

Brewster and Manning Moulton at guards and 
Kenneth Stone at center seem to have the call on 
the other candidates for line positions. Burleigh 
Moulton, Austin and Campbell are all doing good 
work but they are a little lighter than the other 
three. It is very probable, however, that all six 
will be used.

Another Fraternity for Bowdoin 

Statistics which have recently become available 
enable us to take up a question which faces the 
College as a most peremptory and urgent prob- 
lem. It is not a new problem, nor one which can 
be faced and settled over night, for each succeed- 
ing year, if it brings growth to Bowdoin, makes 
this problem more pressing. 

Fraternity life at Bowdoin has long been the 
all in all of College life. This condition is not 
due to the growth of a foolish pride in fraternity 
membership, for itself, but to considerations per- 
haps more material. The fraternities offer affili- 
ation with hundreds of college men throughout 
the country, social advantages in college and out, 
association with a congenial body of men, pleas- 
ant interfraternity relations, comfortable, well- 



equipped homes, excellent dining facilities, and so 
on. Fraternities here are a helpful and whole- 
some thing, and the man who becomes a member 
of one is indeed fortunate. In times past the size 
of the College has made it possible for almost 
every man to enjoy these privileges and we have 
been a body of men with equal privileges and ad- 
vantages. 

This year the entering class numbers 138 men. 
At the recent fraternity initiations 79 of these 
men were taken into fraternities, or only 57 per 
cent, of the total number. The number of men 
in the academic department is 397, of whom 73 
per cent, are fraternity men. 

What of the 104 non-fraternity men in College, 
59 of whom are Freshmen? We find the Bow- 
doin Club, which offered its many privileges to 
these men, hopelessly over-crowded and handi- 
capped, its social life killed by the necessity of 
utilizing to the utmost the room it has for dining 
purposes. We find men eating at great expense 
and little satisfaction in the Brunswick restau- 
rants and lunch-rooms, where one eats in haste 
and repents at leisure. We find men worthy of 
fraternities and fraternities worthy of men held 
apart. We find a student body accustomed to the 
idea of equal privilege for all trying to adjust it- 
self to new conditions. 

The reason for this condition is not that the 
fraternities are too exclusive and deny entrance 
to good men. They can not take in all the good 
men for the size of a fraternity is fixed more or 
less arbitrarily by various conditions. The only 
way to increase the percentage of fraternity men 
is to increase the number of fraternities. Let us 
compare Bowdoin with a few other colleges. 
Bowdoin has 397 men and 8 fraternities, or one 
to every 49 men. Amherst has 410 men and 13 
fraternities, or one to every 31 men. At Am- 
herst over 90 per cent, of the new Freshmen have 
been taken into the fraternities. Williams has 
520 men and 15 fraternities, or one to every 34 
men. Wesleyan has 415 men, 9 fraternities and 
2 local societies, or one to every $7 men. It 
would seem then that Bowdoin would only be 
adopting a course already taken by her sister col- 
leges. 

If we were to look to a fraternity for a charter, 
the name of Chi Psi would present itself most 
naturally. In 1844 a chapter of this fraternity 
was founded at Bowdoin and until it became in- 
active in 1869 from reverses incident to the war, 
its career was honorable and prosperous. Among 
its members were the late Chief Justice Melville 
W. Fuller of the Supreme Court, the late Speaker 
Thomas B. Reed of the House of Representa- 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



tives, Judge William L. Putnam of Portland, a 
member of the Board of Overseers, General 
Thomas H. Hubbard of New York, the donor of 
Hubbard Hall, the Hubbard grandstand, and 
numerous other gifts, and Dr. Alfred Mitchell, 
former Dean of the Medical School. The nation- 
al fraternity is one with excellent standing. In 
1912 it had 18 active chapters. Its policy of ex- 
tension is conservative and discriminating. We 
believe that the standing of Bowdoin, the exis- 
tence of the inactive chapter, and its former rec- 
ord, would cause this fraternity to consider se- 
riously whatever application for a charter should 
be made. 

The establishing of a new fraternity would be 
no easy task but we believe that it is not impos- 
sible. Initiative on the part of a few men, the 
gradual building up of an earnest and determined 
group, and the application to Chi Psi or some 
fraternity of equal worth for a charter, are fac- 
tors necessary to the settlement of one of Bow- 
doin's most imperative problems. That we want 
and need another fraternity must be evident, 
whether we are to have one or not is a question 
which must be settled soon. If fraternity life is 
to maintain its present importance, a larger per- 
centage of men must enjoy it, or the wholesome 
influence of the fraternities will be lost. 



CHANGE IN BASEBALL SCHEDULE 

The four Maine colleges will probably play 
three games in the state baseball series next 
spring, instead of two as in former years. The 
Athletic Council and faculty have not formally 
passed upon the three game schedule yet, but last 
spring both bodies expressed themselves as being 
in favor of such an arrangement, and the follow- 
ing tentative schedule will probably be approved : 

May 1. — Maine at Brunswick. 

May 5. — Bates at Lewiston. 

May 8.— Colby at Waterville. 

May 12. — Colby at Brunswick. 

■May 19. — Maine at Brunswick. 

May 26. — Colby at Brunswick. 

May 29. — Maine at Orono. 

May 31. — Bates at Lewiston. 

June 4. — (Ivy Day) Bates at Brunswick. 

The four Maine managers have planned to of- 
fer a game with each team to the University of 
Tokio, which will be playing in this section of the 
country, at that time. In that case, Bowdoin will 
play the Japanese team June 1 at Brunswick. 
This will be the first time, in case arrangements 
are completed, that Bowdoin has played a team 
from a foreign country.

MEDICAL SCHOOL OPENS 

While the 95th annual course of the Medical 
School of Maine, the Medical Department of 
Bowdoin College, officially opens Thursday, Oct. 
15, registration was completed and the first meet- 
ings of classes were held yesterday. 

During the past year the Council on Medical 
Education of the American Medical Association, 
as a result of an inspection of the equipment and 
policies of the school, has again ranked the Medi- 
cal Department of Bowdoin College among the 
Class A schools of the country. 

A number of changes in the membership of the 
faculty of the Medical School have been made. 
Henry William Miller, M.D., has resigned as 
professor of mental diseases and Ambrose Her- 
bert Weeks, M.D., formerly assistant professor 
of gastroenterology, has been lost by death. 
Nathaniel Edward Loomis, Ph.D., assistant pro- 
fessor of chemistry, has resigned and his place 
will be taken by Neal Dow Tuttle, A.B., a grad- 
uate of Bowdoin College in the class of 1914, who 
becomes instructor in chemistry. Ernest Wood- 
bury Files, A.B., M.D., formerly instructor in 
clinical medicine, becomes clinical assistant in 
•surgery. Roland Banks Moore, M.D., formerly 
instructor in pediatrics, becomes clinical assistant 
in pediatrics. Alfred William Haskell, M.D., for- 
merly clinical assistant in surgery, becomes clin- 
ical assistant in ophthalmology. Erastus Eugene 
Holt, Jr., A.B., M.D., formerly instructor in anat- 
omy, becomes clinical assistant in ophthalmology. 
John Howard Allen, M.D., has been elected clin- 
ical assistant in otology and Albert Kilburn Bald- 
win, A.B., M.D., clinical assistant in medicine. 
Carl Hervey Stevens, M.D., assistant demonstra- 
tor of anatomy and William Moran, M.D., clini- 
cal assistant in diseases of the eye, have resigned. 

The faculty this year numbers 67, giving the 
school an enviable average of more than one 
teacher for every student enrolled with all the 
attendant advantages of individual instruction 
and close understanding between instructors and 
students. 

The registration of students to date shows 66 
men with the possibility of enrollment of a few 
more during the week. The students are :

DANCE AFTER BATES GAME 

The committee for the football dance to be held 
Saturday night, Oct. 31, after the Bates game, 
has made the final arrangements. The dance will 
not be, as first given out, an informal one but 
will be formal. The favors attached to the ladies' 
dance orders will consist of a German silver 
vanity case and chain, specially engraved for the 
occasion. The men's dance orders will have an 
original engraved design of a polar bear with two 
of its paws resting on a football on which are the 
numerals 1914. There will be 20 dances, one of 
which will be a favor dance. The first dance will 
begin promptly at 8 o'clock. 

It is planned to have the hall decorated with 
autumn leaves and crimp paper streamers. Since 
it will be Hallowe'en night there will also be 
jack-o'-lanterns and colored light effects. Both 
the Bates and Bowdoin football teams will be 
guests. The patronesses are Mrs. George T. 
Little, Mrs. Charles C. Hutchins, Mrs. Roscoe J. 
Ham and Mrs. Frederic W. Brown. In accord- 
ance with a recent ruling of the faculty, the 
dancing must stop at 12 o'clock. 



FOOTBALL RALLY 

The first football rally of the year was held 
Friday evening in Memorial Hall. The speakers 
were Coach Tom McCann, Floyd '15, Leadbetter 
'16 and Trainer Jack Magee. They all empha- 
sized the need of more men coming out for the 
team and also that the student body should be be- 
hind the team to -a man. One of the largest and 
best college bands for many years furnished the 
music. Songs and cheers were rehearsed, the 
meeting closing with "Bowdoin Beata." Mac- 
Cormick '15 presided. 

It is planned to hold rallies every Friday night 
before the games with the Maine colleges. Mem- 
bers of the student body, faculty and alumni will 
speak. 



SUNDAY CHAPEL 

In Sunday Chapel Dr. Albert P. Fitch, presi- 
dent of Andover Theological Seminary, spoke on 
''The Lack of Prejudice as Shown by Jesus." He 
said in part : "Jesus showed a great absence of 



prejudices in his life, especially in His meeting 
with the woman of Samaria. He shows a distinct 
absence of sex and race prejudice. He saw her 
not as a woman but as a member of the human 
race. Two thousand years after Jesus lived we 
see so much of sex prejudice and a narrow atti- 
tude toward women. Secondly, He showed no re- 
ligious prejudice. The woman tried to lead Him 
into a controversy, but Jesus had no religious 
preferences. Lastly, Jesus had no national preju- 
dice. His disciples were amazed that He should 
be talking with a woman of another nationality, 
but Jesus considered all people of the same race 
by virtue of the common Father. Nationalism is 
a strong factor today. Jesus was ahead of the 
race which followed Him two thousand years 
later. If we have these prejudices we will do 
well to learn to know Jesus." 



COLLEGE BAND 

This year's band was heard for the first time 
at the football rally Friday night and from all ap- 
pearances is one of the best bands Bowdoin has 
had since a college band was organized in 1905. 
Under the direction of Haseltine '17 the band has 
been practicing regularly since organized two 
weeks ago. There are 22 pieces this year, mak- 
ing the largest band in Bowdoin's history. The 
musicians will be present at all the games at home 
and at the Maine game at Orono. It is also 
planned to give a series of concerts in the spring 
on the campus. Considerable new music has 
been purchased and popular pieces, waltzes and 
patriotic airs have been included. 

The members of the band are : Cornet — Jones 
'15, Hastings '15, Mclntire '17, Sanford '18 and 
Simonton '18; alto — Knapp '17 and Webber '16; 
double B flat bass — Read '18; tuba— Adams '15; 
trombone — Haseltine '17 and Scott '18; baritone 
— McKenney '15 and A. H. Lewis '15; clarinet — 
J. Lewis '15, Bacon '15, Stearns '18 and Keig- 
win '18; piccolo — True '17, Stanhope, Medic; 
snare drug — Chase '18 and E. Smith '18; bass 
drum and cymbals — Stetson '15. A. B. Stetson 
'15 is manager of the band.

CROSS COUNTRY 

Since Trainer Magee's talks at the various fra- 
ternity houses new men have been coming out for 
cross-country every day. The team is working 
hard in preparation for the dual with Wesleyan

team in the intercollegiates look much brighter 
than they did last year. 

A few men were sent over the course on time 
Saturday and finished in the following order: 
Allen '18, Crosby '17, Noyes '17, Bacon '15, Say- 
ward '16, Jacob '18.

C&e iLi&rarp Ca&le 

A recent publication of importance to all stu- 
dents of law and of political conditions is Con- 
cerning Justice by Hon. Lucilius A. Emery, Bow- 
doin '61, former chief justice of the Maine Su- 
preme Court. His style is that of an essayist 
with a rare and delightful feeling for words and 
sentences. Judge Emery's long experience in 
law well qualifies him for his task and his lack of 
party or local bias gives this discussion of the 
aspects of justice an especial value. 

A book designed for lovers of drama in gen- 
eral, for dramatic societies, and for classes in 
schools and colleges is How to Appreciate the 
Drama, by Thomas L. Marble, Bowdoin '98. In 
a simple, practical manner, the author shows his 
readers how to appreciate a well constructed 
play quite apart from its purely literary value and 
its technique. 

The College Librarian has recently received a 
letter from Sir Gilbert Parker enclosing the 
Declaration by British authors on the war and 
the reply by British clergymen to the appeal of 
German theologians to the American public. The 
distinguished author also forwarded a copy of the 
three white papers issued by the British govern- 
ment and the statements made in Parliament by 
the prime minister and foreign minister.

VOL. XLIV 



BRUNSWICK. MAINE, OCTOBER 27, 1914 



NO. 16 



BOWDOIN LOSES TO COLBY 

That weight, both in the line and backfield, still 
wins football games was clearly shown in Satur- 
day's game. Bowdoin's 173 pound team was un- 
able to stop for more than a moment Colby's 183 
pound backfield and the mighty Fraser and his 
mates marched irresistibly the length of the field 
for seven touchdowns. Straight line rushing was 
responsible for most of their gains, and holes in 
the Bowdoin defense seemed to open specially for 
them. The Bowdoin line was unable to break 
through with any degree of success and the sec- 
ondary defense was called upon time after time to 
stop the heavy Colby backs. 

In the fourth period Colby had the ball on Bow- 
doin's one yard line for first down. Bowdoin 
held for three downs but on the fourth attempt 
Captain Fraser pushed the ball over by inches. 

In open play Bowdoin showed better, working 
successfully three out of six forward passes, 
whereas Colby failed to gain in seven attempts. 
Bowdoin's shift plays failed to gain, however, and 
Colby sprang few surprises. Bowdoin was pen- 
alized three times for a total of 15 yards for be- 
ing off side, while Colby was penalized seven 
times for a total of 85 yards, the infringements 
of the rules being holding, off side and hurdling. 

Bowdoin never really threatened Colby's goal, 
Colbath's first try for a field goal going wide and 
his second failing because of a poor pass. Bow- 
doin showed an unfortunate tendency to fumble 
at critical times, a number of misplays giving the 
ball to Colby while within striking distance of 
Bowdoin's goal. Colby made but few fumbles. 

In a game where Bowdoin made few gains and 
Colby's backs starred it is difficult to pick out 
special men to praise but Shumway's work at 
quarter and Brewster's at right guard stood out 
particularly. Chapman's tackling was good and 
Manning Moulton played a good game at guard. 

FIRST QUARTER 

With Bowdoin defending the east goal, Colbath 
kicked off, Colby carrying the ball back to her 
own 35 yard line, and at once punting to Nevens 
on Bowdoin's 32 yard line. Dyar gained two 
yards and Nevens, after failing to gain, kicked to 
P. Fraser on Colby's 47 yard line. P. Fraser 
started off by making first down through left 
guard. Colby was penalized five for being off 



side. Belger made four and P. Fraser in three 
rushes through the line scored the first touch- 
down, kicking the goal immediately afterwards. 

Colbath kicked to Colby's five yard line, but in 
accordance with the policy of scrimmaging in 
Bowdoin's territory, Cawley punted back to the 
35 yard line. A forward pass, Shumway to Col- 
bath, gained 15 and Nevens added four, but 
Colby's defense stiffened and Colbath and Shum- 
way could add only a yard. Bowdoin lost five for 
off side. Colbath tried for a goal from the 43 
yard line but the ball went wide, Cawley carrying 
it back to the 20 yard line. Belger lost five and 
Colby punted to Nevens on Colby's 48 yard line. 
Colbath made two, Shumway four and Nevens 
three but Colbath fumbled into Colby's hands. P. 
Fraser gained nine, Cawley was stopped by Nev- 
ens, P. Fraser made five more and then the touch- 
down, adding the goal after kicking out to Caw- 
ley. 

Austin replaced Leadbetter. Colbath kicked 
off to Royal who ran back from the five to the 25 
yard line. P. Fraser returned the punt to Nevens 
on the 24 yard line. Nevens's attempt to punt 
was blocked on the seven yard line and P. Fraser 
made his third touchdown and goal. 

Wood replaced C. Foster and Shuster went in 
for P. Fraser. Colbath kicked off to Royal who 
ran the ball back to the 43 yard line. Shuster 
got loose for a run to the 30 yard line where he 
was tackled by Wood. Colby was penalized 15 
for holding. Austin recovered Colby's fumble. 
Dyar made two, Shumway two and Nevens 
kicked to Cawley who made a spectacular run 
back of 38 yards, aided by good interference. B. 
Moulton replaced M. Moulton. After Cawley 
had gained two, Colby lost 15 for holding. Caw- 
ley made four and an attempt at a forward pass 
failed. 

SECOND QUARTER 

H. Foster replaced Nevens, Chapman went in 
for Floyd. Cawley tried a forward pass which 
Colbath caught on his 15 yard line. Shumway 
punted outside at the 30 yard line. Cawley and 
Belger made three in three rushes and Bowdoin 
lost five for being off side. Brewster then spoiled 
Cawley's attempt at a pass and the latter kicked 
to Shumway who ran back ten to the 15 yard 
line. Again Colby was penalized 15 for holding.

H. Foster pierced center for four yards and Col- 
bath made two through left guard. Shumway 
made three and then punted 35 to Cawley on the 
27 yard line. In three rushes Cawley made first 
down, Shuster added four, Belger one and Caw- 
ley first down again. Young replaced B. Moul- 
ton. Cawley made two, Belger one and Cawley 
crossed the line for the fourth touchdown, Leseur 
kicking the goal 

Colbath kicked to Cawley on his five yard line. 
The latter ran it back 20, then punted to Shum- 
way on the 40 yard line. Shumway made three, 
Foster ten, Colbath two, Shumway three, Foster 
one. Shumway kicked to Shuster who ran back 
ten to the 20 yard line. Belger made five. Bow- 
doin lost five for being off side. Belger made six 
and Shuster first down. Belger made six and 
Shuster two. Colby was penalized five. Belger 
gained four and the half ended with the ball in 
the middle of the field. 

THIRD QUARTER 

Nevens, P. Fraser and M. Moulton returned 
to their regular positions. Shumway received 
Colby's kick-off and ran back 15 to the 35 yard 
line. Here a bad fumble gave Royal the ball and 
he was stopped only at the 22 yard line. P. Fra- 
ser made seven and six and Cawley made the 
touchdown. Fraser missed the goal. 

Colbath kicked off to P. Fraser who ran back 
25 to the 30 yard line. By straight line plunging 
Colby's backs marched to another tally. Belger 
made four, Fraser 15, Belger six, Cawley five, 
Fraser seven, Belger two, Cawley five, P. Fraser 
five and Cawley no gain. Colby then was penal- 
ized 15 yards for holding. Belger gained ten, P. 
Fraser ten more, Belger seven, P. Fraser first 
down. Cawley five, Belger two and Cawley 
crossed the line, P. Fraser kicking the goal. 

Colbath kicked off, M. Moulton recovering Col- 
by's fumble. The advantage was soon lost, how- 
ever, as Cawley intercepted a pass on the 20 yard 
line. Fraser was then tackled by Brewster for 
no gain and Belger lost four on a tackle by Chap- 
man. Fraser then kicked to Nevens on the 48 
yard line. A forward pass, Shumway to Lewis, 
netted four, Nevens added one, and another pass, 
Shumway to Colbath, gained six for first down. 
Dyar lost one. A pass, Shumway to Dyar, earned 
four but a second attempt failed. Shumway 
made one on a poor pass for a kick and it was 
Colby's ball on downs on the 37 yard line. Nev- 
ens received their kick and ran back five. Nev- 
ens made three around left end, and kicked to 
Cawley who ran back 1 5 to the 45 yard line. 

FOURTH QUARTER 

H. Foster went in for Nevens, Floyd for Chap- 



man and C. Foster for Wood. Fraser kicked over 
the line, play starting at the 20 yard line. Foster 
lost one and Shumway punted to Cawley on Col- 
by's 46 yard line. P. Fraser made six, Belger one 
and P. Fraser six again for first down. Fraser 
gained six, Cawley one and a half in two rushes, 
Belger one, P. Fraser nine. B. Moulton replaced 
Austin. P. Fraser made five, Cawley two and 
Belger one. P. Fraser made five to Bowdoin's 
two yard line and there the White line held for a 
moment. P. Fraser failed to gain and A. Fraser 
could do no better in two attempts but "Ginger" 
finally pushed the ball over by a few inches and 
kicked the goal. 

Colbath kicked off to P. Fraser who ran back 
18 to the 28 yard line, only to be replaced by 
Shuster. Shumway received Colby's punt and 
ran back ten but fumbled on Colby's 40 yard line. 
Cawley kicked outside on Bowdoin's 38 yard line. 
Stanwood intercepted a pass. Shuster gained six 
in two rushes and Cawley was penalized 15 for 
hurdling. A forward pass failed and Colby lost 
five more for being off side. A pass, Cawley to 
Crossman, failed and Colby kicked to Shumway 
on his 16 yard line, the latter punting back to A. 
Fraser on the 45 yard line. Shuster made one 
and a pass failed. Prendergast replaced Leseur. 
Lewis intercepted a pass on the 25 yard line and 
the whistle blew, ending the game.

BATES GAME SATURDAY 
The predictions of various dopesters was ful- 
filled Saturday when Maine's team, outweighing 
Bates 20 pounds to the man, crushed their oppo- 
nents, while Colby, playing steam-roller football, 
was crashing through Bowdoin's line for seven 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



128 



touchdowns. The outcome of it all seems to be 
that next Saturday will see two of the most ex- 
citing and hard-fought battles in the history of 
Maine football. While Colby played old-fash- 
ioned football, it is well-known that her team has 
many clever and dangerous formations. Maine, 
on the other hand, has played straight football in 
the last two games and is sure to spring some- 
thing new against Colby. Maine's line is heavier 
than Colby's, but Colby's backfield brings the 
average nearly equal. It is improbable that 
Fraser will plunge through Maine's line as he did 
through Bowdoin's. His line-plunging behind 
Colby's powerful line, his wonderful end runs, 
with the work of almost equal caliber of which 
his team-mate Cawley is capable, lead us to pre- 
dict victory for Colby by a narrow margin. 

Bates and Bowdoin, both stung by bitter defeat, 
will meet on Whittier Field for a battle royal. 
Against Maine, Bates showed fight and speed 
which resulted in many good gains. They will 
come to Brunswick with both these characteris- 
tics still more developed. On the other hand, it is 
certain that the Bowdoin team, which played 
sluggish football against Colby, will meet Bates 
with its fighting spirit fully aroused and, if the 
Fates permit, a team more free from injuries and 
better able to fight. 

Against Colby, Bowdoin had little opportunity 
to show what offensive power it has. When 
Bowdoin had the ball, its inability to gain seemed 
due to ineffective interference. This may truly 
be prescribed to the necessity for constant shifts 
and substitutions in the backfield. No backfield 
which has seldom if ever played together can 
work as a unit and no man, however fast, can 
carry the ball without combined and unified in- 
terference. 

On the defensive the line was greatly weakened 
by the loss of Leadbetter, who will undoubtedly 
be in good condition for the Bates game. The 
other men on the hospital list are Stuart, Herb 
Foster and Nevens. The first will probably be 
unable to play against Bates, but the last two will 
be in good shape and either alternating or playing 
together, will be the backbone of the offence. At 
fullback Dyar is playing a vastly better game 
than last week. His defensive work during the 
last half of the Colby game was especially strong. 
Colbath's work at either halfback or fullback is 
strong and either he or Dyar at full, with Foster 
and Nevens playing the halves, will probably be 
the combination next Saturday. Shumway at 
quarterback looks like the find of the season. He 
is very strong in handling punts, tackles surely, 
and on the offensive displays splendid general- 



ship and carries the ball well. 

In the line it is unlikely that there will be any 
shifts from tackle to tackle. The effectiveness of 
the line increased toward the last of the Colby 
game as the men began to play lower and Austin, 
Young and Burleigh Moulton proved themselves 
valuable substitutes for Leadbetter and Manning 
Moulton. The last two will probably begin the 
game Saturday in much better condition than 
the}* were this week. 

The ends are Floyd, Chapman, Wood and Clif 
Foster, a veteran of last year's team. The first 
three played a very strong game against Colby, 
while Foster was far below the standard of his 
usual excellent playing. It is probable that Wood, 
who is effective in spite of his lack of weight, will 
be given the call over Foster, while Floyd and 
Chapman will alternate at the other end. Both 
these men are fast and strong on both offence and 
defense. 

With the speed of Foster and Nevens in the 
backfield and a line bettered by bitter experience, 
we may look for a combination which will make 
Bates display all she has for the supremacy.

Support in Defeat 

The football team has met another defeat and 
from a team so manifestly superior that victory 
for Bowdoin seemed useless to hope for after the 
first few minutes. It was predicted that the team 
which won the Bowdoin-Colby contest would win 
the championship of the state and this seems 
probable. Yet Bowdoin has two more games to 
play and until the whistle blows at the end of the 
last quarter the team will fight, whether the pen- 
nant is at stake or not. It is easy for a team to 
fight to the last ditch, in spite of successive de- 
feats, discouragements, and injuries, for every 
man knows what is expected of him and he gives 
willingly all he has, buoyed up by the feeling of 
common devotion to a cause which the members 
of the team have. 



The man who cannot play but has to sit and 
watch the team defeated, perhaps without under- 
standing why, has a harder task. It is easier to 
serve than to stand and wait. His devotion and 
loyalty and trust in the team are in no way in- 
spired by the feeling that comes to a member of 
the team. He must sit back and, unbiased by the 
excitement of actual participation, figure out just 
how much better the other teams are than our 
team, or how small are our hopes of victory. His 
sense of loyalty may say one thing and his sense 
of judgment say directly opposite and he usually 
is swayed to the latter opinion. Yet most men, in 
spite of what their judgment predicts as to the 
outcome, support a cause from start to finish, and 
the more loyally when the cause seems a losing 
one. 

Defeat brings out the man who sits in a morris- 
chair in the middle of a circle of his kind, and 
pours forth football "dope" culled here and there 
from newspaper columns or from football gossip. 
Without having been in touch with the team, he 
attacks the coach, the team, and mournfully be- 
wails the lack of a football team with any chance 
of victory. One defeat is enough to convince him 
that other defeats must follow, and as he con- 
tinues his swan-song, his hearers unconsciously 
lose faith in the team. 

Bowdoin has no place for this type in the next 
few weeks. The team has been defeated once, 
overwhelmingly to be sure, but not for good and 
all. The team will fight in the next games as 
never before and with the support of a student 
body to whom defeat should mean only a cause 
for renewed loyalty, it will acquit itself well and 
hand down to other Bowdoin teams the tradition 
of fight to the end. 



CROSS COUNTRY RACES BEGIN 

This afternoon the interclass cross-country 
race, starting at Whittier Field at 4 o'clock, will 
serve as a final trial for the team that will race 
Wesleyan next Saturday. Both the interclass 
and the Wesleyan races will start in front of the 
grandstand and will finish with one lap around 
the track, after four and three-quarters miles of 
hilly country. 

Coach Magee has picked the following men 
who will probably form the class teams and from 
whom the varsity team will be chosen : 

1915. — Bacon, Cutler, McKenney, McWilliams, 
Wright. 

1-916. — Crossman, Irving, Ladd, Sayward, Win- 
ter. 

1917. — Babcock, Bond, Cormack, Crosby, Hum- 
phrey, Noyes. 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



1 3° 



1918. — Allen, Jacob, Moulton, Colter, Morse, 
Howard, Savage, Hurlin. 

Five men are to start for each class, and the 
score of each man will count in the total. The 
Freshman team is subject to revision at any mo- 
ment by Coach Magee. After the interclass race 
the captain of the varsity will probably be elected. 

The Wesleyan race Saturday will start between 
the halves of the Bowdoin-Bates game. 

Seven of the following men will start in the 
race: Bacon '15, Cutler '15, Wright '15, Irving 
'16, Sayward '16, Crosby '17, Noyes '17, Allen 
'18, Jacob '18, Moulton '18. Five of these men 
will score, while Wesleyan will enter only five 
men. 

Last Thursday's edition of the Wesleyan Argus 
in an account of the Wesleyan cross-country 
team was not optimistic as to the result of Satur- 
day's race. This is the first time that Wesleyan 
has entered the cross-country game and a squad 
of less than ten is out. 



EATON WINS FALL TOURNAMENT 

In the finals of the fall tennis tournament, 
Eaton '15 became the winner by defeating Flynt 
'17 in the first round of the finals. In the final 
round he also defeated Greeley '16. The scores 
follow: Eaton '15 defeated Flynt '17, 6-2, 7-5; 
Eaton '15 defeated Greeley '16, 6-4; 9-7; 6-3. 



PAST SCORES WITH BATES 

Bowdoin and Bates began their football games 
earlier than did the others, but in 1889, and since 
then, the two have played twenty-one games. No 
contests were waged in the years 1890, 1891, 1892 
and 1900. Bates has scored 86 points, and Bow- 
doin 282, but of these 186 were scored in the first 
five years when Bates had elevens which offered 
little substantial resistance. The scores: — 

1889 Bowdoin 62, Bates o. 

1890 No game. 

1 89 1 No game. 

1892 No game. 

1893 Bowdoin 54, Bates 0.

RALLY FOR COLBY GAME 

The second rally of the season was held last 
Friday night in Memorial Hall. Excitement over 
the Colby game was at a high pitch, and there 
was "standing room only" as a result. McWil- 
liams '15 presided. 

The band appeared first, receiving a great ova- 
tion, and rendered a few preliminary selections. 
The speakers, in order of appearance, were: 
Brewster '16, Professor Files, Foster '16, Clifford 
'11 and Coach McCann. Rrefreshments in the 
way of cigarettes and apples were served. The 
meeting closed 'midst cheers and "Bowdoin 
Beata."

THE LIGHT FANTASTIC 

Next Friday night the Bowdoin Gymnasium 
will see the first college dance of the year. Ac- 
cording to a vote of the student body last year, a 
dance is to be given, in place of one of the Junior 
assemblies, after the last home game of the Maine 
football series, in honor of the visiting and Bow- 
doin teams. This year the members of the Bates 
team have been invited as guests of the College. 

Preparations for the affair are nearly complet- 
ed. Lovell's orchestra of ten pieces will furnish 
music for the 16 dances. The dance orders for 
the ladies include specially engraved vanity cases 
of German silver; the men's orders will have an 
engraved design of Bowdoin's new athletic sym- 
bol, the polar bear. Decorations will carry out 
the idea of Hallowe'en, and will include jack-o'- 
lanterns, autumn leaves, etc. 

The patronesses will be Mrs. Charles C. Hut- 
chins, Mrs. Roscoe J. Ham, Mrs. Frederic W. 
Brown and Mrs. Alice C. Little. Since the danc- 
ing must stop at 12 o'clock, the first dance will be- 
gin promptly at 8 o'clock. 

A special feature will be a duet dance by a cou- 
ple in Hallowe'en costume, and under colored 
light effects. The dance and music are entirely 
new, purchased at some expense for the occasion. 
The music for the dance has been especially or- 
chestrated by Mr. Lovell. 

Although the dance is to be formal as an- 
nounced, the matter of dress is left to the discre- 
tion of the patrons, inasmuch as the committee 
wishes to offer no restriction to the large number 
of alumni who are to be back for the game and 
who might wish to attend the dance. 



Y.M.C.A. NOTES 

The Y.M.C.A. held its second meeting of the 
year last Tuesday evening in the Y.M.C.A. room. 
Various upperclassmen were the speakers. 
Leadbetter '16 spoke on "Supporting Athletics," 
dealing with the matter of getting out for the 
squads and encouraging Freshman teams. Foster 
'16 had the subject, "Representing the College," 
and brought out the personal responsibility each 
man should feel for the college's reputation. Mc- 
Kenney '15 discussed "Class-Room Honesty," ap- 
plying it to all phases of scholastic work. Mac- 



Cormick '15 spoke on "Relations Between Fra- 
ternity and Non-Fraternity Men." He described 
the ideal relations and also brought in the matter 
of another fraternity for Bowdoin. 

The Sunday noon Bible classes in the Church 
on the Hill will be led for the next month by Rev. 
Chauncey W. Goodrich. His subject will be "The 
Bible of the Educated Man." The class is open 
to Juniors and Seniors. 

Dr. Ashley D. Leavitt of Portland will speak 
at the Y. M. C. A. meeting on Thursday, Nov. 5. 

Doctor Cornelius N. Paton, secretary of the 
American Board of Missions, will give a mission- 
ary address at the Church on the Hill this even-

Rollins '15, Morrill '16, Phillips '17, Savage '18 
and Stanley '18. 



LARGER FOOTBALL SQUAD 

Aroused by the speeches at the rally and by the 
personal work at the different houses by Coach 
McCann and Trainer Magee, a large squad has 
reported for football practice during the last 
week. Since last Tuesday forty men have been 
out each afternoon and Coach McCann has been 
able to keep three teams on the field. This revi- 
val of spirit will help the varsity and it is to be 
hoped that the men will continue their work. 
Among those who reported for the first time last 
week are: Eastman '15, McKinnon '15, Bird '16, 
Drummond '16, Ireland '16, Balfe '17, Bradford 
'17, Corbett '17, McNaughton '17, Swift '17, Ber- 
ryman '18, Curran '18. MacCormick '18. Rounds 
'18 and Smethurst '18.

FRESHMAN RELIGIOUS COMMITTEE 

After the Y.M.C.A. meeting on last Tuesday 
evening, the Freshman Religious Committee met 
at Professor McConaughy's home on McKeen 
Street. MacCormick '15, Foster '16, Chapman 
'17 and Crosby '17 described the work of such 
committees in the past. Norton '18 was elected 
chairman of the committee, with Jacob, Call, O. 
Hamlin and Prentiss as sub-chairmen. It was 
decided to do the usual work of the committee in 
collecting old clothes, magazines and other arti- 
cles for the Labrador missions. 

The committee also voted to observe Tuesday 
evening, Nov. 3, as Freshman night, with an 
entertainment by Freshman talent, followed 
by a social hour in order that the members of the 
entering class may get better acquainted with 
one another. Refreshments will be served. The 
following Freshman committee has been chosen 
to have charge of the affair : Albion, chairman ; 
MacCormick, Schlosberg, A. S. Gray and Fuller. 



Club ano Council S@eeting# 

A meeting of the Athletic Council was held in 
Dr. Whittier's office Friday evening. It was 
voted that no one be allowed to play class foot- 
ball unless he had practiced two weeks for varsity 
football. The matter of a baseball coach was 
taken up. It was voted that Oct. 31 be recorded

able work covers all phases of the government of 
the United States, its legal and political history, 
principles, and practice, its traditions and ever- 
changing political ideas, the economic conditions 
affecting government — all treated in an accurate 
and interesting manner. The editors, Professor 
Hart of Harvard and McLaughlin of Chicago 
have had the assistance of two hundred and fifty 
eminent lawyers, historians and professors of po- 
litical science and economics. Among the latter 
are Professors MacDonald and Dennis, formerly 
of the history department at Bowdoin, and Pro-

By the best figures of weights available, the 
teams which played in college football in Maine 
Saturday found Colby heaviest, Maine next, Bow- 
doin next and Bates lightest. Maine's line is far 
the heaviest of the quartet but Colby's backfield 
is heavy enough to make the average weight 
greater than Maine. Maine's line averages 194.4 
pounds, her backfield 170.7 and her team averages 
179. Colby's line averages 185.2 pounds, her 
backfield 183 and her team average is 181. Bates 
has 161.8 pounds to the man in the line, 154.7 to 
the man in the backfield and the team average is 
159. Bowdoin averages 185.4 in the line, 160.7 m 
the backfield and the team avenge is 173. 



Resolutions 

Arthur Scott Gilson. 
Medical School of Maine, 1894. 
In the death of Dr. Gilson the Medical School 
of Maine loses an earnest and sympathetic in- 
structor and a graduate who brought credit to the 
institution by skilful and scientific work. Dr. Gil- 
son was one of those rare men whose interest in 
his professional work was so intelligent and so 
deep that he never seemed to need nor to miss 
the collegiate training that usually should pre- 
cede graduate study. As a family physician he 
was kind, tender, careful; as a doctor he was 
wise, progressive, scholarly. The patience and 
fortitude with which he bore his long and terrible 
illness were but additional proofs of the fact that 
the sympathy and kindness he constantly gave to 
others were but the fruits of a noble and strong 
character.

BOWDOIN HOLDS TILL LAST QUARTER 

In the second championship game of the Maine 
series, Bowdoin lost to Bates hy the score of 27-0. 
This is the largest score by which Bates has 
beaten Bowdoin. 

The game showed signs of real football for 
three periods, Bates securing only a field goal in 
the first period. The rest of her points she se- 
cured in the last period when the Bowdoin team 
seemed to go completely to pieces. 

The first three points came early. Bates recov- 
ering a fumble on Bowdoin's 25 yard line, Talbot 
putting the ball over for a field goal in the next 
play. 

Then for the next two periods the two teams 
fought desperately. Neither team was able to 
make first down frequently. Bates played an open 
style of game, working many forward passes, 
shift and trick plays. Bowdoin seemed unable to 
fathom her opponent's plays, and worked but few 
open plays herself, not even a single forward 
pass. 

Twice in these periods the Bowdoin goal was 
in danger, once when Nevens intercepted a for- 
ward pass on the one yard line and punted out of 
danger, and again when Bowdoin held for downs 
a yard from the goal line. 

In the last period Bates recovered another 
fumble and after two or three rushes, Talbot 
threw a forward pass to Boyd for a touchdown. 
Curtin intercepted a forward pass and carried the 
ball over for a second touchdown. On the next 
kick off Talbot ran the length of the field and was 
caught only on the 6 yard line by Colbath after a 
long run. Unable to push the ball over, Bates 
-worked Butler in for a field goal. The final score 
came when Neville intercepted a forward pass 
and ran 45 yards for a touchdown. 

FIRST PERIOD. 

Bates kicked to Bowdoin, Leadbetter running 
the ball back. Colbath gained two yards on line 
plunge, Nevens three yards around end. Another 
rush by Colbath gave one yard. Bowdoin was 
forced to punt, Nevens getting away a good kick 
to Bates's 21 yard line where the ball went out- 
side. On the first rush Connor made no gain. 
Connor two yards through center. DeWever 
made a yard. Talbot punted, and Gustin recov- 



ered the ball, Nevens tackling him on Bowdoin's 
25 yard line. Connor made no gain. On a second 
rush Connor made three yards. Again Connor 
made no gain. Unable to make first down, Bates 
was forced to try a field goal, this Talbot accom- 
plishing for the first score of the game. 

Bowdoin kicked to Bates, Talbot running back 
Colbath's kick-off to the 20 yard line. Talbot 
pulled off a 25 yard run around right end. De- 
Wever made a yard on line rush. Butler was 
thrown for no gain. A forward pass, Talbot to 
Boyd, netted nine yards, Wood getting the tackle. 
Chapman broke through, tackling a Bates back 
for a seven yard loss. Talbot tried another for- 
ward but failed. Here Bates uncorked a trick 
play, a back rushing towards the line but before 
reaching it passing the ball straight back to a half 
who was supposed to forward it, but the play was 
unsuccessful. Bates lost the ball on downs. 
Nevens made five yards around end. Colbath 
made first down on another end run. Colbath 
made two yards, Nevens two, Colbath two. Nev- 
ens punted, Bates getting the ball on her own 2(5 
yard line. Connor and Butler were held for no 
gain. On a kick formation Talbot made 25 yards 
around right end. DeWever was unable to gain 
H. Foster went in for Dyar. DeWever made 
five and Connor one. Bates was penalized five 
yards for offside play. Talbot and Butler worked 
forward for five yards. On an end run Talbot 
failed to gain. Talbot and Boyd made another 
forward for 15 yards. The first period ended 
with ball on Bowdoin's 24 yard line. 

SECOND PERIOD. 

Connor made two yards and then two more on 
a shift play. Talbot made a yard for first down 
Connor went through for five yards. DeWevei 
and Connor could not gain. Nevens intercepted 
a forward on Bowdoin's one yard line, carrying 
ball back five yards. Nevens punted, Chapman 
tackling Talbot on Bowdoin's 25 yard line. Bates 
was penalized 15 yards for holding. Stillman 
went in for Clifford. A forward pass, Talbot to 
Connor, was good for 15 yards. C. Foster went 
in for Wood. Another forward, Talbot to Mur- 
ray, netted 25 yards, Shumway tackling the man 
on the six yard line. DeWever four yards, Con- 
nor one. The ball was here right under the Bow-

doin goal posts. Talbot and Connor were unable 
to gain. Bowdoin received ball on downs and 
Nevens punted out to the 25 yard line. Two for- 
ward passes by Talbot failed. Bates punted, 
Bowdoin getting the ball back to the 25 yard line. 
Nevens made five and Colbath two, and then 
Nevens made five for first down. Shumway 
made a yard on a line plunge. After making foui 
Nevens punted to Connor who made five and 
Connor then was held for no gain. DeWever 
made a yard. Shumway received Talbot's punt 
on Bowdoin's 27 yard line, rushing ball back ten 
yards. Nevens went through for two and on the 
next play Bowdoin lost eight yards. Nevens 
punted, C. Foster tackling the man on 30 yard 
line. DeWever made five yards and here the half

made seven yards around right end, being tackled 
by the Foster brothers. Bowdoin got ball on 
downs. Colbath made three yards in two rushes 
and Nevens two around left end. Nevens punted, 
Bates getting a fair catch on her own 17 yard 
line. After Connor and DeWever had made nine 
yards, Herb Foster intercepted a forward by Tal- 
bot on Bates's 35 yard line, being tackled by 
Boyd. Shumway made two yards. Bowdoin was 
penalized 15 yards for holding. Nevens made 17 
yards around right end. H. Foster made two 
through the line. A forward by Shumway failed. 
Stettbacker went in for Connor. Nevens made 
four. Bates obtained ball on downs, on 27 yard 
line. DeWever made three and Talbot two. Tal- 
bot punted, Shumway running the ball back to 
Bowdoin's 33 yard line. End of third period. 

FOURTH PERIOD. 

Shumway made two yards and Nevens three. 
Nevens was forced to punt. Colbath intercepted 
a forward pass. Colbath and Nevens made but

place. DeWever made two yards. A fumble by 
Bates cost them four yards. Talbot punted, Man- 
nix carrying the ball back five yards to 30 yard

Colbath kicked off. Chapman relieved Floyd. 
DeWever made no gain. Austin went in for 
Leadbetter. Talbot made first down around right

covering the ball. H. Foster made a yard. Mac- 
Cormick relieved Mannix. Talbot intercepted a 
forward by Nevens, Wood tackling him on the 25 
yard line. Curtin lost four, Wood again tackling.

yard line. Curtin intercepted a forward by Mac-

FOOTBALL PROSPECTS 

At Waterville and Orono next Saturday the 
final chapters of this year's championship football 
history will be read. It is agreed that it will be 
little short of a miracle if either Bates or Bow- 




CAPTAIN LEWIS 

doin take victory from Colby or Maine. Victory 
means an undisputed title to the championship 
for Colby and there is little expectation that her 
splendid football machine will fail to secure the 
clear title. Bates, while she showed some bril- 



liant football against Bowdoin, during three quar- 
ters failed to show that she has an effective scor- 
ing team. The last quarter of the Bowdoin game 
showed alertness and individual brilliancy on the 
part of the Bates team, but little which will weigh 
heavily against Colby. 

Bowdoin will meet Maine on foreign soil, with 
the pointer of prophecy indicating defeat for the 
White. Yet last year a Bowdoin team met Maine 
on Whittier Field with crushing defeat apparent- 
ly a certainty, and Maine was glad to carry home 
the long end of a 9 to score, having earned 3 of 
these points and received 6 more as a gift from 
Dame Fortune. It is part of the heritage of Bow- 
doin men that their teams shall not go on the field 
defeated. Granted that Bowdoin will send a 
weakened and crippled team against Maine's 
powerful aggregation, yet miracles are not yet 
out of date. 

Bowdoin will probably present to Maine the 
same line that met Bates. Injuries to Brewster, 
Leadbetter and Chapman will handicap these men 
for a time, but it is hoped that a few days' rest 
will improve their condition. On the wings we 
have the choice of four strong men, C. Foster, 
Wood, Floyd and Chapman. Foster played a fast, 
aggressive game Saturday, recovering completely 
from his slump of the week before, and he and 
Chapman made a speedy pair under punts. Floyd 
and Wood will also be seen Saturday to advan- 
tage. 

In the backfield we may be deprived of the ser- 
vices of Nevens, if he is barred for scholastic 
reasons. He is the fastest man on the team and 
his punting is a great asset. His loss would be 
serious, but Herb Foster and Colbath at the 
halves, with Dyar at fullback will make a strong 
combination. Shumway has a bad ankle which 
has impaired his speed, but done nothing to his 
spirit. Mannix, whose running back of a punt 
was the most brilliant piece of dodging seen here 
in many a day, will probably play a large part of 
the game. 

Maine will probably present the same line-up 
that met Colby last Saturday. The line is the 
heaviest in the state, while the backfield is much 
heavier than ours. 



CROSBY CROSS-COUNTRY CAPTAIN 

The cross-country squad met Thursday even- 
ing and elected Crosby '17 captain for the present 
season. Crosby won his track "B" in the Maine 
Intercollegiate Cross-Country at Waterville last 
year, being the only Bowdoin runner to finish 
among the first ten.

On to Maine 

The first two games of the Maine series have 
heen played on Whittier Field with the loyal 
backing of the student body. Saturday Bow- 
doin's team goes to Maine to try to offset two de- 
feats with victory. They will play under over- 
whelming odds and across the field will hear the 
roars of a thousand lusty Maine rooters, with 
perhaps no answering roar from the Bowdoin 
bleachers. Will the team play better or worse 
under such conditions? 

This is the first game near enough home for 
the student body to travel with the team. It is 
said that Bowdoin has a losing team and the 
other Maine colleges as one will watch Saturday 
to see if Bowdoin's student body supports its 
team to the end, or whether it stays on its campus 
and fears to face defeat. There was never a time 



when we had a better chance to show that our 
spirit is a strong, compelling force that makes us 
accept honest defeat bravely, not a weak, shallow 
surface-enthusiasm that disappears as things go 
against us. Saturday we must answer one ques- 
tion : Is Bowdoin Spirit to represent to the other 
colleges a big and lasting thing, or are we to al- 
low our team to fight alone because our support 
is not firmly grounded on true loyalty? 



An Answer 

During the past week we received a letter from 
"Several men of 1918," asking for information 
with regard to the proposed new fraternity. The 
letter asked that we explain the method of appli- 
cation for a charter from a national fraternity. 

A society, desiring to become a chapter of a 
national fraternity, endeavors to make the vari- 
ous chapters of the fraternity acquainted with its 
purpose, its standing, and the standing of the col- 
lege in which it is located. It does this by means 
of bulletins, descriptive pamphlets, and personal 
work. In the meantime it has petitioned the na- 
tional fraternity for a charter and the petition is 
taken up at the national convention of the fra- 
ternity, and voted on. 

We believe that at Bowdoin the petitioning 
stage must be considered as decidedly in the fu- 
ture. No application can be made to a fraternity 
until a strong society with an earnest aim, worthy 
of consideration, has been organized and has 
stood the test of time. Hasty action would be 
disastrous. The society should have a slow 
growth, it should eliminate its faults one by one, 
and be content to increase its strength slowly. It 
should be well organized with the soundest prin- 
ciples of justice and fairness in choosing its mem- 
bers. It should gain the respect and support of 
the faculty and the student body and be recog- 
nized as a power working for the best interest of 
the College, not for the granting of special privi- 
lege to a select few. It will then be ready to 
unite with a broader and more powerful organi- 
zation. 



WESLEY AN WINS BY A POINT 
When Allen stubbed his toe on standpipe hill 
Saturday, Bowdoin lost the cross-country race 
with Wesleyan by a single point. Allen, who has 
been making the fastest time on the squad, fell, 
striking on his head and before he could recover 
the others had such a lead that he could not catch 
up. 

Wesleyan was victorious, 27 to 28. The first 
man to cross the line, however, was Captain 
Crosby, who finished with an excellent sprint and

in good condition. The time was 30 minutes, 52 
seconds. 

The runners finished in the following order : 
Crosby, Bowdoin ; Cashman, Wesleyan ; Potter, 
Wesleyan ; Irving, Bowdoin ; Johnson, Wesleyan ; 
Allen, Bowdoin; Cutler, Bowdoin; Baldwin, Wes-

BOWDOIN ORIENT 



STATE RACE SATURDAY 

The third annual Maine intercollegiate cross- 
country race will be Friday afternoon over the 
Bowdoin course. Bowdoin's team will probably 
be the same as that which raced Wesleyan last 
Saturday but it is possible that one or two 
changes will be made. 

Although defeated in its first race of the sea- 
son, the Bowdoin team is by no means a weak 
one, and while there is small chance for Bowdoin 
to win first, the White will be a strong contestant 
for second honors. 

Allen and Crosby stand forth as leaders in the 
work thus far but the whole team has been with- 
in two minutes of them at the finish. None of 
the men are suffering injuries. 

All four colleges have a large number of veter- 
ans, a fact which seems to indicate a close, fast 
race. The four teams will be made up from the 
following men : 

Bowdoin — Allen, Crosby, Irving, Noyes, Cut- 
ler, Sayward, Bacon, Jacob, Howard. 

Bates — Cate, DeWolfe, Doe, House, Lane, 
Mitchell, Snow, Weber. 

Colby — Levine, M. Thompson, P. Thompson, 
Waldron, Webster, Weg, Wenz. 

Maine — Bell, Coffin, Dempsey, Herrick, Libby, 
Preti, Wunderlick, Stevens, Walters. 

Bowdoin has four veterans, Crosby, Irving, 
Noyes and Cutler. Bates has three men who 
scored last year, Doe, Cate and House. Of Col- 
by's team, five men are veterans. They are Wenz, 
Waldron, Webster, Weg and M. Thompson. 
Maine's team, which won the race last year, is 
practically the same. 

The officers are: referee and starter, Benjamin 
B. Ostheus; judges at finish, Professor Pomeroy 
■oi Bates, Dr. H. C. Bell of Bowdoin, Professor 
Parmenter of Colby, P. A. Warren of Maine; 
timers, Dr. F. N. Whittier, Dr. Manton Copeland, 
McKenney '15; clerk of course, Koughan '15; 
assistant clerks, Crehore '17, Philbrick '17; scor- 
ers, McWilliams '15, Smith '15, Hargraves, Medic 
'18; inspectors, Boardman '16, Nickerson '16. 



CLASS TRACK MEET TODAY 
The fall inter-class track meet will be held this 
afternoon on Whittier Field at four o'clock. 
There will be ten events : 100 yard dash, 120 yard 
hurdles, 220 yard dash, quarter mile, half mile, 
mile, two mile, high jump, broad jump and pole 
vault. The usual additional field events will be 
omitted because of football practice. 

Among those who are expected to enter are: 
sprints, McWilliams '15, Roberts '15, Hall '16.

FRESHMAN-SOPHOMORE DEBATE 

The question for the Freshman-Sophomore de- 
bate this year will be: Resolved, That the Mas- 
sachusetts Ballot should be adopted by the State 
of Maine. 

Notice of the time and place for preliminary 
trials will be posted soon. All men of both classes 
are urged to come out for this contest, as debat- 
ing has an important part in class rivalry. Each 
contestant will be given five minutes in which to 
speak. 



RALLY BEFORE BATES GAME 

The third rally of the season was held Friday 
evening in Memorial Hall. Showing that they 
were not discouraged by the Colby game, a large 
crowd was present. MacCormick '15 presided. 

The band did its usual good work during the 
evening. The speakers, in order of appearance, 
were: Shumway '17, Professor Bell, Moulton 
'15, "Farmer" Kern '12 and Professor Nixon. 
Fuller '16 led the cheering. Refreshments of ap- 
ples and cigarettes were passed around. 

MacCormick announced that the special car for 
the Maine game had been secured and the meet- 
ing closed with an air of confidence and the feel- 
ing that after Bates, then "on to Orono." 



FRESHMEN WIN 

With a margin of only three points the Fresh- 
men won the class cross-country race last Tues- 
day, scoring 48 points against 51 for the Juniors 
and Sophomores who tied for second. The Sen- 
iors, with a team of only three men, came last 
with 60. 

The men finished as follows: Allen '18, Cros- 
by '17, Irving '16, Cutler '15, Noyes '17, Sayward 
'16, Bacon '15, Moulton '18, Jacob '18, McKenney

'15, Babcock '17, Colter '18, Winter '16, Ladd '16, 
Crossman '16, Cormack '17, Bond '17, Savage '18. 

By winning the race the Freshmen now have a 
leg on the silver cup offered by Dr. Whittier and 
won last year by 1917. 

The race served as trials for the Wesleyan 
race, the first seven men to finish being chosen.

PAST SCORES WITH MAINE 

Since 1893, when Bowdoin first began to play 
Maine, eighteen games have been played between 
the two colleges. Of these eighteen games, Bow- 
doin has won ten and one of the games, in 1910, 
was a tie score. The scores : 

-Bowdoin 12, Maine 10.

SPECIAL FOR MAINE GAME 



Since it is not certain that enough men will go 
to the Maine game to justify the engaging of a 
special train, it is doubtful whether such arrange- 
ments will be made or not. If enough men sign 
up when the call is given Wednesday night, the 
special will probably be engaged and the price 
for the round trip will be $2.50. The train will 
leave Brunswick at 8.30 Saturday morning and 
leave Bangor at 7.00 p. m. for the return. If the 
special is not engaged, excursion rates less favor- 
able than the above will probably be obtained. 



A NEW BOOK OF POEMS 

We have recently received and read with pleas- 
ure a book of poems written by President Samuel 
Valentine Cole of Wheaton College. The author 
is a graduate of Bowdoin in the class of 1874. 



He is also the author of "In Scipio's Gardens and 
Other Poems," "The Life That Counts," and 
other works. The new book is entitled "The 
Great Grey King." It contains many poems 
which, aside from the beauty of the verse and 
the depth of the thought, are particularly inter- 
esting to Bowdoin men. Several were first deliv- 
ered here, among these being "Works and Days," 
read on the occasion of the one hundredth anni- 
versary of the opening of the College. Another 
poem, "The Man," pays a graceful tribute to 
Longfellow, Hawthorne, Hamlin, Fessenden and 
Peary. 



ALUMNI REUNION 



During the convention of the Maine Teachers' 
Association in Portland last week, there was a 
reunion of Bowdoin alumni with a banquet at 
Riverton Park. Among the alumni present were : 
D. H. Knowlton '69, J. C. Tarbox '79, F. E. 
Briggs '94, C. A. Flagg '94, E. R. Woodbury '95, 
H. R. Ives '98, C. W. Proctor '98, L. P. Libby

Robinson '08, D. F. Koughan '09, F. D. Wish, Jr., 
'12, G. C, Kern '12 and W. J. Greenleaf '12. Pro- 
fessors Davis and McConaughy were also pres- 
ent. 



Y.M.C.A. NEWS 

Under the auspices of the Y.M.C.A. Freshman 
committee a social gathering of the class of 1918 
will be held tonight in Memorial Hall. The pur- 
pose of the affair is to give the members of the 
class an opportunity of getting acquainted. Va- 
rious members of the class will sing, play, give 
readings and entertain in other ways. Apples, 
cider, doughnuts and pretzels will add to the ma- 
terial enjoyment of the occasion. The committee 
in charge is Albion, Gray, Fuller, MacCormick 
and Schlosberg. 



Clufi anD Council sheetings 

The Athletic Council met last night, after the 
Orient went to press, to consider the football 
condition and other matters of importance. 

The Student Council met on Tuesday, Oct. 27. 
The main business was the election of Foster '16 
to the position of assistant calendar manager. A 
slight change in the clerical arrangements was.

made, and the football dance plans were discussed 
at some length. 

At a class meeting Thursday night in Hubbard 
Hall, the Freshmen elected the following officers : 
president, R. A. Thomas; vice-president, Brier- 
ley; secretary-treasurer, MacCormick; football 
captain, Stanley; football manager, Macdonald. 



€f)e SOtficr Colleges 

According to recent statistics five-eights of the 
Dartmouth Freshmen are deficient in scholarship. 
Of a class of 445, 279 are below passing and 184 
of these are ineligible for any college activity. 

Believing in freedom of speech, Harvard Uni- 
versity has refused to accept the resignation of 
Professor Hugo Munsterburg of the chair of 
psychology, who resigned when Major Clarence 
Wiener of London threatened to alter a will by 
which Harvard was to receive $10,000,000. On 
account of Professor Munsterburg's pro-German 
utterances, Major Wiener demanded his resigna- 
tion and the professor immediately complied. The 
Harvard Bulletin says in an editorial : "The uni- 
versity cannot afford to admit any suggestion that 
it would be willing to accept money to abridge 
free speech, to remove a professor, or to accept 
his resignation." 



Wiith t&e JFacuItp 

The Bowdoin faculty was well represented at 
the annual convention of the Maine Teachers' 
Association in Portland last Thursday and Fri- 
day. Among those who spoke were : President 
Hyde, Dean Sills and Professors Files, Mitchell, 
Nixon and Davis. Mr. Wilder officiated as presi- 
dent of the Maine Library Association. Profes- 
sor Nixon was elected president of the Depart- 
ment of Classics and Professor Hormell chair- 
man of the Department of History. 

Professor McConaughy spoke recently in Ban- 
gor High School on "The History of Education." 
Using about 100 illustrated slides, he traced the 
development of the free public school system 
from its earliest forms down to the time of Hor- 
ace Mann, whom he characterized as having done 
more for the free public school system than any 
other individual. 

Professor Mitchell delivered an address on the 
Drama at the University of Maine Wednesday 
evening. 

Dean Sills will attend the annual meeting of 
the New England Association of Colleges and 
Preparatory Schools to be held in Boston this 
week Friday and Saturday. 

Dr. Elliott was one of the speakers at the ban- 



quet following the dedication of Longfellow's 
birthplace in Portland. Dr. Elliott holds the chair 
of English Literature formerly occupied by Long- 
fellow when a member of the Bowdoin faculty. 

As chairman of the committee on social hy- 
giene of the Maine Medical Association, Dr. 
Whittier has published a pamphlet containing the 
reports of this committee for the past four years. 
Besides briefly outlining the work done by the 
committee, the pamphlet contains many letters 
from men and women prominent in educational 
and social work commending the committee be- 
cause of its successful work. 

Dr. Bell will speak on "The Outbreak of the 
War" at the meeting of the St. Paul's Church 
Men's Club tonight at Codman House.

'92. — Frank Howard Cothren, a lawyer of New 
York, died on May 29, 1914, at his home in 
.Brooklyn. He was born July 10, 1871, at Brook- 
lyn and prepared for college at Brooklyn Prepar- 
atory School. He was a member of the Delta 
Kappa Epsilon fraternity, the Crescent Athletic 
and Cambridge Clubs and of the New England 



Society. After graduation from Bowdoin, he 
took his law degree at Columbia Law School, 
practiced law with his father in New York in 
1895, and served as assemblyman in legislature in 
1903-04. 

He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Marion Bene-

BOWDOIN ORILNT 



VOL. XL1V 



BRUNSWICK, MAINE, NOVEMBER 10, 1914 



NO. 18 



BOWDOIN OFFERS STUBBORN DEFENCE 

Far more sensational than the long forward 
passes, brilliant end runs and mighty line plunges 
of the Maine team was the plucky defence made 
by Bowdoin in the face of heavy odds at Orono 
Saturday. Outweighed by the heavy Maine line 
and backfield, the Bowdoin line was pushed back 
time and again and the secondary defence was 
called upon to down the runner. During the hour 
of football Maine pushed the ball across the line 
four times and kicked three goals from touch- 
downs, a total of 27 points. Bowdoin failed to 
score. Her best chance came in the second pe- 
riod when Floyd tried a drop kick from the 17 
yard line, but the kick, failed. Colbath tried a 
goal from placement from the 30 yard line during 
the first few minutes of play when Bowdoin re- 
covered Maine's fumble, but the ball went wide 
by inches. 

Fumbling was frequent, 17 misplays marring 
the game. Bowdoin showed ability to recover 
her own fumbles and took advantage of Maine's 
fumbles at critical moments. 

Bowdoin's defence when her goal line was in 
danger earned the commendation of all who saw 
the game. Twice she held for downs within her 
own five yard line and once when a Maine touch- 
down was warded off by a matter of inches only. 
The Maine rooters acknowledged Bowdoin's 
fighting spirit by playing "Bowdoin Beata" be- 
tween the halves. 

Maine worked the forward pass in a wonder- 
ful way, making five successful passes out of 12 
trials. One pass of 30 yards from Bernheisel to 
Donahue in the third quarter resulted in a touch- 
down. Once, after an ineffectual attempt to buck 
the line, Maine tried the forward pass three 
times, but Bowdoin broke up all three plays and 
received the ball on downs. 

Wishing to retain possession of the ball wher- 
ever possible, Bowdoin did not attempt a forward 
pass or long end run. Bowdoin's backfield, 
patched up as it was as a result of injuries, was 
unable to gain consistently and Lewis was called 
upon to send the ball out of danger. His punting 
was the best that has been done for Bowdoin this 
year and outdistanced that of his Maine competi- 
tor. 



Drummond, Bradford, Peacock and Stanley 
played in their first varsity game and gave a good 
account of themselves. Leadbetter played well 
in the backfield as did Shumway, his defensive 
work saving the day on more than one occasion. 
As a whole the team exhibited snap and fight that 
has been woefully lacking in earlier games of the 
season. 

Maine's scores 

Maine scored her first touchdown soon after 
the opening of the second period. At the begin- 
ning of the period the ball rested on Bowdoin's 
nine yard line and after Martin had made five 
yards Ruffner went over for the touchdown. 
Ruffner kicked the goal. 

Later in the quarter a forward pass from Bern- 
heisel to Donahue netted 30 yards and a touch- 
down. Two forward passes netted 20 yards and 
a touchdown, while a forward from Bernheisel to 
Donahue in the third period was good for 30 
yards and a touchdown. 

The fourth and final score was in the nature of 
a freak play. Bernheisel had been throwing his 
passes after a run parallel with the line of scrim- 
mage, but finding in this case a well massed de- 
fence, and being blocked from making the pass, 
he turned and ran around the opposite end for a 
touchdown. This was not the play called for in 
the signals, but it was a clever piece of individual 
work. 

In the final session Ruffner tried for a field 
goal from the 35 yard mark but the ball struck on 
the upright and bounded back into the field of 
play. 

The game in detail follows : 

FIRST PERIOD 

Colbath kicked off to Wark who fumbled, and 
Herb Foster fell on the ball. Three rushes failed 
to gain, so Colbath tried for a goal from place- 
ment. The ball went low and was caught by 
Martin, who was instantly downed. Spiers and 
Ruffner made first down through left tackle. 
Ruffner made a yard through right tackle. Kriger 
made 12 on a short left end run. The Maine 
team was upset by having two trips around 
Wood's end smothered, and Martin punted to 
Bowdoin's 20 yard line, where the ball went out- 
side. Lewis returned the punt. Bowdoin held 



M5 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



for downs, and, after two rushes by H. Foster 
and Leadbetter, Lewis punted. Martin made 
three yards around left end, but Maine was pen- 
alized 15 yards. Maine was penalized five yards. 
Spiers reeled off an end run which made first 
down for the Blue, bringing the ball to Bowdoin's 
35 yard line. In the next six rushes Maine made 
25 yards. The period closed with the ball on 
Bowdoin's nine yard line. Score: Bowdoin, o; 
Maine, o. 

SECOND PERIOD 

Floyd went in for Chapman. Martin made five 
yards, and Kriger went across for a touchdown. 
Ruffner kicked the goal. 

Colbath kicked off. On the first play Bowdoin 
recovered a fumble on Maine's 20 yard line. Cliff 
Foster went in for Wood. Bowdoin failed to gain 
and Floyd tried for a goal but failed. Maine 
punted from her 20 yard line, and Shumway ran 
the ball back to her 40 yard line. H. Foster made 
a couple of yards around right end, and Colbath 
squeezed between right guard and tackle for five 
more. Shumway signalled for a forward, but the 
line weakened and the pass was blocked, Maine 
recovering the ball on her own 37 yard line. 
Bernheisel and Martin made first down around 
the ends. Bowdoin then held for downs and 
Lewis punted. By means of a stubborn defence, 
and a penalty Bowdoin secured the ball again on 
downs. H. Foster made five yards and Colbath 
two. Lewis punted and Maine had the ball on 
her own ten yard line. Bernheisel and Martin 
made first down. Kirk made six yards. Floyd 
nailed the next man for a loss, and Maine punted. 
Shumway muffed the punt and Maine recovered. 
Mannix replaced Shumway who was hurt. Maine 
was penalized 15 yards on the next play and had 
25 yards to go. Gorham and Kirk tore off the 
required distance in two rushes. Leadbetter was 
hurt and Bradford went in for him. Two for- 
ward passes, which averaged 20 yards each, 
brought Maine's second touchdown. Ruffner 
missed the goal. 

Bowdoin kicked off. Maine lost eight yards by 
an incomplete pass, and punted. Mannix muffed 
the punt and Maine recovered. Here the half 
ended with the ball in Maine's possession on Bow- 
doin's 30 yard line. Score: Maine, 13; Bowdoin, 
o. 

THIRD PERIOD 

Leadbetter and Shumway were both back in 
the game. Maine kicked off. Three rushes net- 
ted only five yards, and Lewis punted. Maine 
made first down in two tries. Kirk made 25 yards 
and Ruffner ten around the ends. The ball was 
now on our 30 yard line. Reardon went over for 




M| :: jg| 



Coach McCann 

the third touchdown on a long forward. Ruffner 
kicked the goal. 

Colbath kicked off to Maine's five yard line, 
where Reardon started on his 50 yard run back 
the field. Bernheisel failed to gain but Ruffner 
ripped off 14 yards and placed the ball on Bow- 
doin's 30 yard line. Shumway nailed an attempt- 
ed forward on the five yard line. Peacock went 
in for H. Foster. Lewis punted and downed the 
runner himself. Dyar went in for Leadbetter. 
Maine made first down twice, bringing the ball 
to Bowdoin's 15 yard line. A fumble and recov- 
ery gave Maine the ball only three yards from 
the goal line. Bowdoin held and Lewis punted 
out. Martin failed to gain, three forward passes 
were broken up, and Bowdoin had the ball. Lewis 
was forced to punt, as the backs could not pierce 
the Maine line. Kirk fumbled the kick and Dyar 
fell on it in midfield. Lewis again punted to 
Maine. Stanley went in for Wood. Maine made 
ten yards in two rushes and the period was 
ended. Score : Maine, 20 ; Bowdoin. o. 

FOURTH PERIOD 

The period began with the ball in Maine's pos- 
session on her own 30 yard line. After two un- 
successful rushes, Martin uncorked a 35 yard run 
around right end. In five more rushes Maine 
reached Bowdoin's 15 yard line. After two short 
gains, Bernheisel took the ball around right end 



BOWDOIN ORIENT

for a touchdown. Ruffner kicked the goal. 

Colbath kicked off and Maine rushed it back to 
the 35 yard line. Maine failed to gain, and 
Ruffner punted. Colbath made three yards. On 
the next play the ball was fumbled, and Maine 
recovered. MacCormick went in for Shumway. 
Three rushes netted five yards. Austin went in 
for B. Moulton. Bowdoin intercepted a Maine 
forward behind her own goal post and started off 
from the 20 yard line. Lewis punted. A double 
pass failed to gain, but two other rushes made 
first down. Ruffner tried for a goal from the 35 
yard line, and the ball bounced off the goal post. 
Lewis punted and time was up. Score : Maine, 
27; Bowdoin. o.

TUFTS GAME ENDS SCHEDULE 

When Bowdoin meets Tufts at Medford next 
Saturday, it is generally acknowledged that Capt. 
Angell's team will defeat the White, as Tufts 
will offer about the same team which beat Bow- 
doin by the score of 27 to 7 last year. Just how 
badly Bowdoin will be beaten is a matter of much 
doubt. To Tufts' veteran team Bowdoin will 
present the same team which showed so much 
fight against Maine last Saturday. Leadbetter, 
Herb Foster. Chapman and Shumway are still in 
bad condition but are no worse than before the 
Maine game, in which they played star football. 
The rest of the team are in good condition and 
will be well rested when they meet Tufts. 

Tufts will have great difficulty in recovering 
from the crushing defeat which Dartmouth gave 
them Saturday. They were completely outclassed 
in every department of the game, their famous 




Floyd, left end 
shift was almost helpless, their forward passes 
failed, and their defence seemed bewildered and 
demoralized. Before the game with Dartmouth 
it was thought that Tufts had a team capable of 
scoring on any other team in the country; now 
what they will do against a strong defence is 
problematical. Perhaps their defeat will cause 
them to play the game of their lives next Satur- 
day; perhaps they will still be suffering from it 
physically and mentally. 

Bowdoin will be watching for the Angell-lon°- 
pass combination and it is doubtful if Tufts du- 
plicates its marvelous forward-passing perform- 
ance of last year. Our team will have to watch 
for the short, speedy passes which Tufts seems 
to favor this year, as well as for the quick shift 
which Tufts still uses. Our line has shown a 
power recently to stop mass plays headed by 
much heavier lines and Tufts may meet opposi- 
tion which it does not expect. 

Captain Lewis should outpunt Westcott, a fact 
which will weigh heavily in our favor in playing 
a defensive game. 

The battle at Medford will be an interesting 
one to watch and unless Tufts recovers its mid- 
season form, it will be a fight and no walk-over.

The Championship Series 

Last Saturday's game ended the series for the 
championship of the State, and Colby has won an 
undisputed title with decisive victories over each 
of the other three colleges. We congratulate 
Colby on her team for it is one whose equal has 
rarely if ever been seen in the State of Maine. 
Maine presented a strong team, while Bates has 
produced a remarkable team, when one considers 
the dearth of material which her coach had to 
offset. Bowdoin has ended her season in the cel- 
lar position, having met defeat at the hands of the 
other three colleges. 

The game Saturday against Maine was, to 
those who saw the game, a much better end to the 
season than the score seems to indicate. The 
team, although outclassed, played with a spirit 
and fight which characterized their play in no 



other State game. They were not beaten even 
when the score seemed hopelessly against them, 
but offered a determined defense throughout the 
game. There was none of the listless and dis- 
spirited playing for which the team has been crit- 
icized this year. Instead there was dogged, stub- 
born and sometimes brilliant defense and inef- 
fective but hard-fighting offense. The work of 
the team in this game will do much to soothe the 
sting of former defeats. Victory was not to be 
hoped for, but the spectacle of a team which 
seemed endowed with the spirit we claim as our 
heritage did much to make the little band of loyal 
Bowdoin rooters forget that our team was out- 
classed in the matter of ability. 

To the men who accompanied the team to 
Orono and kept up their enthusiastic cheering 
throughout the game, a word of appreciation is 
due. To follow across the State a team which 
has been beaten repeatedly is an evidence of loy- 
alty which deserves the highest praise. A student 
body has no right to expect of its teams more 
spirit than the student body itself shows, but the 
spirit shown last Saturday was the sort which 
wins victories or accepts defeat with equal grace. 



BOWDOIN CLUB OF BOSTON MEETS 

At the monthly meeting and dinner of the 
Bowdoin Club of Boston at the University Club 
last Friday evening, Dean Sills was the principal 
speaker of the evening. His remarks aroused a 
great deal of enthusiasm among the 75 members 
present. He spoke of the large entering class 
and the consequently large enrollment this year. 

Dean Sills commented on the fact that the 
Bowdoin Club of Boston has been meeting regu- 
larly for the past 20 years — the only college club 
in Boston that has such a record to its credit. 

Prior to the dinner of the club there was a 
meeting of the Alumni Council, at which several 
important questions were discussed. The ques- 
tion of increasing the student body to 500 was 
debated in many of its bearings and it was de- 
cided that an increase to 500 would necessitate 
the raising of several hundred thousand dollars 
for new dormitories and a larger staff of instruc- 
tors. The suggestion met with favor. 

The organization of another fraternity was 
also discussed, as was the question of maintain- 
ing the present high entrance standard. 



SOPHOMORES WIN CLASS TRACK MEET 

The Sophomores won the annual fall class 

track meet, held last Tuesday, with a total of 28 

points. The Juniors were a close second with 27,

MAINE WINS STATE RACE 

Duplicating her feat of last year, Maine once 
more won the Maine Intercollegiate Cross-Coun- 
try race, which was run from Whittier Field last 
Friday afternoon. Maine showed a well bal- 
anced team, three of her men being among the 
first four to finish. Maine's score was 26 points, 
while the next team, Colby, secured 39 points ; 
Bates finished third with 65 points, and Bowdoin 
last with 91 points. 

Once more Standpipe Hill proved the undoing 
of Bowdoin, for it was at this point in the race 
that Crosby, her captain and the winner of the 
Bowdoin-Wesleyan race, was unable to continue 
the race owing to cramps near the heart. 

The feature event was the running of Bell for 
Maine, and of Wenz for Colby. Cutler, who fin- 
ished first for Bowdoin, ran a very consistent and 
pluck)' race. 

Bell of Maine won the race in 28 minutes, 37 
seconds, or one minute and a half slower than the 
time he made last year over the course at Water- 
ville. Wenz of Colby was second in 28m., 40s.; 
3rd, Dempsey, Maine, 29m., 17s.; 4th, Preti, 
Maine, 29m., 24s. ; 5th, Lane, Bates^gm., 24s. ;

COOGAN TO COACH BASEBALL? 

Although no official action has been taken by 
the Athletic Council it is probable that Dan 
Coogan, the former Cornell, Bowdoin and 
Georgetown coach, will be engaged to coach 
Bowdoin's baseball team this spring. It is known 
that the Council favors Coogan and that he likes 
Bowdoin and it is probable that the Council will 
decide the question at its next meeting. Coogan 
coached the 1913 Bowdoin team that won the 
state championship. 



FRESHMAN MUSICIANS 

The class of 1918 has organized a new class 
activity in the form of a Freshman orchestra. At 
present H. T. Pierce is acting as conductor, and 
meetings are held every Tuesday evening in the 
Y.M.C.A. room. The orchestra is now composed 
of fourteen pieces, and the number will be in- 
creased if other men come out for the positions. 
It is intended that the orchestra shall play at class 
gatherings, and perhaps also at other occasions. 

The present members are : Smith, drum ; Scott, 
trombone; Simonton, first cornet; Sandford, sec- 
ond cornet ; Stanhope, flute ; Stetson, 'cello ; 
Stearns, clarinet; Brown, French, Joyce, Phil- 
brick, Renaud and Warren, violins; and Brooks, 
piano.

SUBJECT FOR DEBATE CHANGED 

The following will be the subject of the Sopho- 
more-Freshman debate instead of the one an- 
nounced in last week's Orient: Resolved, That 
county elections in the various states should con- 
form to the principles of the short ballot. 

Trials will be held in Hubbard Hall, Nov. 
16, at seven o'clock. The trials will consist of a 
.five-minute speech on some phase of the question 
for debate. Four men from each class will be 
retained. The final debate is expected to take 
place on the evening of Friday, Dec. n. Coaches 
for the two teams will be announced after the 
trials. 

Freshmen intending to enter the trials should 
speak to Professor Mitchell; Sophomores should 
notify Livingston '15, Edwards '16 or Rogers '15. 



TUFTS HAS WON MAJORITY 

It was with Tufts, in 1889, tnat Bowdoin 
played its first game of football with another col- 
lege; and ever since there has been a steady ri- 
valry between the teams. In all, sixteen games 
have been played, and of these Bowdoin has won 
six and Tufts ten. 

The list of scores follows : 

1889.— Tufts 8, Bowdoin 4.

RALLY BEFORE MAINE GAME 

An enthusiastic rally in Memorial Hall the 
night before the Maine game showed that the 
College, in spite of defeats, was still strong be- 
hind the team. After the usual band selections, 
McWilliams '15, as chairman, introduced Profes- 
sor Mitchell. The latter said that our ideal must 
be "to stand behind our football team, through 
thick and thin, through victory and defeat, to the 
end." Professor Copeland, the second speaker, 
said that it was not necessary to wait until next 
year to see Bowdoin win victories, for the team 



wins a moral victory in every hard-fought game 
it plays now. After this speech, there followed 
entertainment by the Glee Club and refreshments 
of cider and doughnuts. MacCormick '15, the 
last speaker, appealed to every loyal Bowdoin 
man to be on the 8.05 train for Bangor in the 
morning "even if you have to sell your overcoat 
to do it." The spirit of the whole occasion ex- 
hibited a strong determination to fight to the end 
and so show that Bowdoin loyalty does not know 
defeat. 



FRESHMEN DRINK CIDER 

At the celebration of Freshman night at Me- 
morial Hall last Tuesday evening, the members 
of the entering class took advantage of the op- 
portunity to get acquainted. Professor McCon- 
aughy delivered an interesting illustrated lec- 
ture on "Old Bowdoin," and Mooers '18 gave a 
reading. The Freshman orchestra, under the di- 
rection of Pierce '18, rendered a number of se- 
lections. Norton '18 presided. Refreshments in 
the shape of apples, doughnuts and cider were 
served. 



BOWDOIN TO BE WELL REPRESENTED 
Bowdoin will be well represented at the Com- 
munity Efficiency Conference in Augusta Nov. 
13. 14 and 15. Dr. F. N. Whittier of the Com- 
mission for Relief and Welfare Work will speak

Files of the Commission for Rural Life will re- 
port on "Good Roads." Professors Hormell, Mc- 
Conaughy and McClean and Mr. Langley will

Wednesday, Nov. 18, on Tennyson, and on Fri- 
day, Nov. 20, on Browning. Each of the lec- 
tures will be in Memorial Hall and will start at 8 
o'clock. 



Club anD Council Meetings 

At the last Athletic Council meeting, held Nov. 
1, it was moved and seconded that the Council 
pass a vote of confidence in Coach McCann's ef- 
forts to turn out a winning team, and to recognize 
adverse conditions which made his task a difficult 
one. 

The Council voted not to send the cross-coun- 
try team to the New England race, nor to ap- 
prove the dual track meet with Trinity at Hart- 
ford on May 1. It did, however, vote to approve 
the renewal of relations with the B.A.A. 

The Classical Club will hold its first meeting 
Thursday, Nov. 19, at Professor Nixon's house. 

At a meeting of the Sophomore class held last 
Monday noon, Campbell was elected captain of 
the class football team, and Miller, manager. 



€&e ©tftet Colleges 

A triangular intercollegiate debating league 
composed of teams representing Bates, Clark and 
Tufts Colleges has been formed. Representatives 
of the three colleges agreed to make the organi- 
zation a permanent affair and to hold three de- 
bates annually. 

Wisconsin Freshmen who refuse to wear their 
regulation caps are dumped into the lake by a 
"W" man. 

Dartmouth undergraduates are this year for 
the first time to enjoy the advantages of Robin- 
son hall, the new nonathletic building completed 
last June and formally presented at commence- 



ment by the giver, Wallace F. Robinson of Bos- 
ton. It is now occupied by most of the organiza- 
tions assigned to rooms, and within a few days it 
is expected that all nonathletic activities will be 
permanently housed in the new quarters. Fur- 
thermore, as to the qualifications of organizations 
occupying this building, Mr. Robinson says : "In 
order to insure the continued democracy of the 
college, I have stipulated that no organization 
shall make use of the building except those in 
which the qualification for membership is proved 
ability only." 

If a Wesleyan student has failed to prepare his 
lessons he may go to recitations, report himself 
as unprepared, and be credited with only a half a 
cut ; and he will not be called on to recite during 
that recitation. 

Statistics compiled from the leading colleges of 
the United States show that over a billion dol- 
lars was used last year to push college athletics. 

The Red Head Club at Illinois has received the 
official sanction of the Council of Administration 
and is now an established "activity." The object 
of this society is "to promote good fellowship 
among the red heads of Illinois. The member- 
ship is limited to Juniors and Seniors. They are 
expected to pledge several Sophomores before 
the close of the school year. The pledge ribbon is 
a brilliant red." The club has petitioned the na- 
tional organization of Red Heads, Phi Lambda 
Rho, for a charter. 

The class of 1918 at the University of Kansas 
declared itself absolutely and unconditionally op- 
posed to all forms of cheating, cribbing and dis- 
honesty in class and school work and all other 
practises tending towards the discouragement 
and destruction of individual efficiency and en- 
terprise of its members. 

The University of Wisconsin regents recently 
adopted the recommendation of the faculty that 
intercollegiate rowing contests be temporarily 
discontinued pending further development of in- 
tramural athletic sports. This means that Wis- 
consin will not be represented by crews in the 
Poughkeepsie regatta next year. 

At New York University, the Students' Service 
Department started this year by the university in 
the School of Commerce, Accounts and Finance, 
has already proved a sucess. The aim of this de- 
partment is to make new comers feel at home, to 
secure lodgings and bring about introduction of 
the new men to one another. 

Pennsylvanian cross-country men who report

who show interest receive credit for gymnasium

Wesleyan students who desire may join the 
current event club which is located at that insti- 
tution for the purpose of studying the true con- 
ditions of affairs of note in a clearer light than 
that which newspaper accounts may give. 

Company H of the National Guard of Pennsyl- 
vania is composed entirely of students from the

ways attends the annual encampment at Mt.

The ruins of College Hall at Wellesley still 
stand, although they will be taken away this fall. 
The sum of $625,000 is still lacking, however, for 
the completion of a new building. The only part 
of the building which was not entirely destroyed 
is the kitchen and this has been converted into 
the geology department. The college still goes 
on with an enrollment of 470 new students for 
the year.

be held in the Y.M.C.A. room tonight at five 
o'clock. Men desiring to compete should, if pos- 
sible, speak to Card '15 at the A. D. house before 
that time. 

The College reclaimed last week a strip of 
land which had been used for part of the road, 
by erecting a fence at the corner of Harpswell 
and College streets. The fence is an iron pipe 
affair, made of the old boiler tubes, and is similar 
to the fence along the pines. Also a strip of 
fencing was put up along the Delta. 

A large number of the Bowdoin students col- 
lected at the station last Friday night to give the 
team a send-off to the Maine game. The team 
was late, but this did not depress the enthusiasm 
of the gathering. The players were cheered in- 
dividually, and as a team. Bowdoin Beata, Phi 
Chi and Forward the White were sung and the 
cheers were repeated until the eleven was well 
on its way to Orono.

'63. — Calvin Lewis Hayes, one of the men who 
left College at the outbreak of the Civil War to 
enlist in the Union army and who was granted his 
A.B. degree out of course at the last commence- 
ment, died at his home in Kittery, N. H., on July 
24, 1914. He was born at Kittery on March 1, 
1842, the son of Lewis and Sarah M. (Clark) 
Hayes. He acquired his early education in the 
schools of Kittery and afterward fitted for col- 
lege at Wolfboro, N. H. Entering Bowdoin in 
1859, when President Lincoln issued his first call 
for volunteers, he enlisted April 30, 1861, falling 
back a year in college. In 1862 he reenlisted, 
this time in the 27th Maine Regiment in which he 
was appointed Sergeant Major, and again in 1864 
he reenlisted for three years or ''for the war" 
and was commissioned Adjutant in the 32nd 
Maine Regiment, having at all times deported 
himself with credit. While in service he kept a 
diary that has since proved of great value and in- 
terest. At the close of the war he was honorably 
discharged from the army and a medal for gal- 
lant behavior in the field was conferred upon him 
by Congress. 

After the war was over, he received an honor- 
ary appointment as clerk in the Navy Yard at 
Kittery and served in that position up to Presi- 
dent Cleveland's administration. He afterwards 
engaged in the fire insurance business, having 
offices at Kittery and Portsmouth, N. H. In 1864 
he was married to Miss Anglia M. Perry. 

Mr. Hayes was a staunch adherent of the Re- 
publican party from the time of its organization. 
For a long period of years he was a member of 



the School Board and served as Supervisor of 
Schools of Kittery and served several times as 
Town Clerk and Moderator. He was a member 
of Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity, the Odd Fel- 
lows, Knights of Pythias, and the Loyal Legion 
of Portland, Maine. 

'83. — The library has recently received a report 
on Botanical Research in Palestine during recent 
years, written by Professor John Edward Dins- 
more, A.M., of the American Colony at Jerusalem 
and printed in the Zeitschrift des Deutschen 
Palestina-Vereins. 

'96. — Frank Emerson Bradbury died in Chi- 
cago Nov. 3, following injuries received in a 
street accident. He was struck by a team while 
crossing Wabash Avenue, and the impact of the 
blow threw him under a passing street car. He 
was removed to St. Luke's Hospital where it was 
found that broken ribs had pierced his lungs. He 
died several hours later, retaining consciousness 
long enough to make his will and to dictate mes- 
sages to his wife and law partner. Mr. Bradbury 
was a member of the law firm of White & Brad- 
bury, Boston, and resided in Dedham. His trip 
to Chicago was in connection with his work as 
counsel of the International Mercantile and Bond 
Company. Mr. Bradbury was born in Strong, 
Maine, and after his graduation from Bowdoin 
in 1896 he attended the Harvard Law School 
where he graduated in 1901. For three years he 
was with the law firm of Jackson, Slade & Bor- 
den, New Bedford, and later with the firm of 
Elder & Whitman, Boston. In 1909 he formed a 
partnership with Alfred B. White, Bowdoin '98, 
with offices at 85 Devonshire Street, and this 
partnership has since continued. As a lawyer, 
and in all his relations, the sterling qualities that 
endeared him to his classmates have won him not 
only material success but the greater success that 
lies in the esteem and confidence of all associates. 
He was a hard worker, clean and square in all 
his relations, incapable of meanness of any kind, 
loyal always to his college and class, and giving 
his home and his friends the first place in his 
heart. He was recognized as one of the most 
promising of the younger men of the Suffolk bar 
and his name had already been mentioned for 
high honors in his profession. At Bowdoin he 
was a sound student, .and won a place as one of 
the six commencement speakers from his class. 
He was a member of the Delta Upsilon fraternity 
and of Phi Beta Kappa. In Boston he was a 
member of the Bowdoin Club, the Boston City 
Club and of the Masonic bodies. He is survived 
by his wife and a daughter.

IBOWDOIN RECEIVES $10,000 
The announcement has recently been made that 
in the will of Dr. George S. Lynde of New York, 
Bowdoin was named as one of the beneficiaries to 
the amount of $10,000. Dr. Lynde is a graduate 
of Yale in the class of 1883. He had a brother 
who graduated from Bowdoin in 1877 and who 
was the first member of his class to die. It is in 
memory of him that the gift is made and it is to 
be used for books in the Library. It is subject to 
an annuity of $300 a year during the life time of 
Dr. Lynde's niece. Among the other beneficiaries 



are Yale University, Phillips-Exeter Academy,, 
and the Public Library of Bangor, Maine. 



CROSBY RE-ELECTED CAPTAIN 

At a meeting of the cross-country team held 
last Tuesday, Clarence H. Crosby '17 was unani- 
mously re-elected captain. This year he has al- 
ways been one of the leaders in the squad. He 
won first position by a good margin in the race 
with Wesleyan, and was running well up among 
the leaders in the Maine intercollegiates when he 
was overcome by severe cramps and forced to 
drop out. His choice as captain is very popular 
with the College. 



BOWDOIN SCORES ON TUFTS 

A bewildering mixture of brilliant offensive 
formations by Tufts overwhelmed Bowdoin Sat- 
urday, and it was not until the final minutes of 
play that Bowdoin was able to rally and score her 
only touchdown of the game. The score was 60 
to 7. From the opening of the game, when Tufts 
scored twice in quick succession, Bowdoin never 
had a chance to win, and in all but the third pe- 
riod Tufts advanced almost at will. 

As in last year's Tufts game, the Brown and 
Blue players made long advances by the forward 
pass. Short passes to Stankard and Bennett, last 
year's captain, netted repeated gains. Bennett 
alone got away with at least a dozen passes. On 
long passes Tufts was not so successful, the Bow- 
doin quarters breaking up a number of such plays 
and intercepting two, one of which led to Bow- 
doin's touchdown. 

At only a few times during the game Bowdoin 
was successful in holding the speedy Tufts backs. 
Soon after the opening of the second half Tufts 
advanced the ball the length of the field to Bow- 
doin's 20 yard line, but here the Bowdoin line 
held and the ball changed hands on downs. Aided 
by a penalty Tufts soon brought the ball back and 
forced Hadley over for another touchdown, but 
during the rest of the period Bowdoin held and 
prevented another Tufts score. Later in the pe- 
riod, with a Tufts touchdown in sight Bowdoin 
put up a stonewall defence and took the ball on 
the five yard line on downs, Lewis punting out 
from behind his goal line to Parks, who was.

REVIEW OF REVIEWS SCHOLARSHIPS 

College men who earn a large part or all of 
their college expenses will be interested again this 
year in the free scholarships offered by the Re- 
view of Reviezvs, under the direction of Mr. H. 
W. Frey to self-supporting students. For the 
past six years over 1200 students have won free 
cash scholarships worth $100 to $1000 apiece. 
President Wilson, together with five prominent 
college presidents, has endorsed this plan of 
awarding free scholarships to ambitious students. 
They are not competitive in any sense of the 
word, but are available to any. student of good 
character. Each student is apportioned an exclu- 
sive radius. The scholarship is won, not for class 
room proficiency, but for practical work during 
the summer months or in spare time through the 
college year. Any self-supporting student can 
secure full particulars without obligation by drop- 
ping a postcard at once for "The Adventures of 
T. Courtney Perkins" to The Review of Reviews 
Scholarship Fund, 30 Irving Place, New York 
City. 



^ORIENT PICKS ALL-MAINE ELEVEN 
The Orient picks the following All-Maine 
football team. It will be observed that some men 
have been chosen for positions in which they 
have not played. Our choice is made with the 
idea of picking the best combination possible and 
men who are too good to be left out are put in 
other positions than their own. The team is as 
follows : 

Donahue (Maine), le : Dacey (Colby), It; 
Stanwood (Colby), lg; Baker (Maine), c; Gul- 
liver (Maine), rg; Allen (Maine), rt ; Royal 
(Colby), re; Talbot (Bates), qb ; Ruffner 
(Maine), rhb; P. Fraser (Colby), lhb; Cawley 
(Colby), fb. 



PHI CHI BANQUET 

Over 60 members of the Phi Chi medical fra- 
ternity attended the banquet of the Gamma 
Gamma chapter in Portland Saturday. Dr. 



Frank N. Whittier was toastmaster. The speak- 
ers of the evening were : Dr. Walter E. Tobie, 
Medic '99, who spoke on Opportunities in Sur- 
gery; Dr. Edward W. Gehring, Medic '04, who 
discussed the Prevention of Disease ; Dr. Thomas 
J. Burrage, Harvard Medic '03, whose subject 
was Opportunities for the Medical Graduate 
Other Than the Practice of Medicine ; and Dr. 
James A. Spalding, Harvard Medic '70, who 
spoke on Patience for Beginners. 



MAINE WINS NEW ENGLAND RACE 

The University of Maine won the New Eng- 
land cross-country race at Boston Saturday with 
a score of 66, but a scant three points ahead of 
Tech, her nearest competitor. Preti of Maine 
was first to cross the finish ; his time was 25 min- 
utes, 15 3-5 seconds for the course of four and 
four-fifths miles. Nine teams started, finishing 
in the following order : Maine, Tech, Dartmouth, 
Massachusetts Agricultural College, Williams, 
Colby, Brown, Worcester Polytechnic Institute 
and Amherst. 

On account of the ineligibility of Allen and the 
condition of Captain Crosby, Bowdoin's two best 
men, it was not thought expedient for Bowdoin 
to send a team to the race. 



TRIALS FOR CLASS DEBATE YESTERDAY 

The trials for the members of the Freshman 
debating team were held last night at 7 o'clock in 
the Debating Room, Hubbard Hall. Each man 
spoke five minutes on some side of the following 
question : Resolved, That all states should use 
short ballot in county elections. The candidates 
for the Freshman team were: Albion, Coombs, 
Curran, Grant, J. E. Gray, H. S. Gray, Haskell, 
Jacob, Joyce, Keigwin, Macdonald, Manderson, 
Matthews, Norton, Prosser, Sanderson and 
Stearns. 

Up to a late hour before the Orient went to 
press only four Sophomores had handed in their 
names, Blanchard, Crehore, Crosby and Moran. 



23 MAJOR WARNINGS TO FRESHMEN 

At the recent review of the Freshmen, 23 
major warnings were given out and 59 minor 
warnings. This means that about two-thirds of 
the class are barred from representing the Col- 
lege or any of its organizations. These men will 
have an opportunity to remove these deficiencies 
before Nov. 23 when a general review of all four 
classes will take place.

Newspaper Mutilation 

We observe that the Library authorities have 
again been compelled to post notices requesting 
students not to make clippings from the news- 
papers in the reading-room. The justice of such 
a request is apparent. The Library furnishes 
newspapers for all to read. Those who wish to 
keep clippings of special interest may do so by 
writing their initials over the clipping and calling 
for it at the Library desk after the paper has been 
taken from the racks. When a man cuts some- 
thing out of a paper which all have not had an 
opportunity to read, he is depriving others of the 
chance to enjoy something which may interest 
them as much as it does him. Such an act is not 
only unfair but it implies an inability to discrimi- 
nate honestly between personal and College prop- 
erty. The Library is justified in asking students 



Freshman Warnings 

To those Freshmen who received at the first 
review official warnings, we feel called upon to 
give a second warning less official. The sending 
of an official notice that a man's work is below 
the required standard does not mean that the Fac- 
ulty is gently breaking the news of expulsion. 
Nor does it mean that a man's ability is below the 
required standard. It means that the work of the 
first few weeks must be improved or the Faculty 
will consider the man unable to do the work re- 
quired of him. 

A "warning" often comes to a man because he 
has been unable to get into the swing of things 
and adjust himself to changed conditions. That 
man should not be discouraged for his difficulty 
will be overcome with time and experience, if he 
is trying faithfully to be proficient. If his prep- 
aration has been inadequate, he may safely be- 
lieve that his professors will realize that fact and 
take it into consideration. If his trouble comes 
from inability to concentrate on his work, he 
must force himself to concentrate until he be- 
comes able to do so without effort. 

To many men "warnings" have come because 
they have avoided the realization of what the re- 
sponsibilities of college life are. They have 
fooled themselves into thinking they can get by 
with hurried and careless preparation of lessons, 
and have put off the disagreeable task of studying 
for the sake of what they believe is "college life." 
To these men we urge only an appreciation of the 
fact that they now have the choice between four 
years of real college life and a few weeks of pur- 
poseless and aimless pleasure, between strong 
hopes and ambitions and futile negligence and 
laziness. Now, while it is in their power, they 
must make their choice, for the second warning 
is more significant than the first and after a cer- 
tain time one's efforts, however great, cannot 
make up for wasted weeks. 



ALUMNI COUNCIL MEETING 

~The second meeting of the Alumni Council was 
held at the University Club, Boston, Mass., on 
Nov. 6. The committees on alumni associations, 
on employment bureaus, and on preparatory 
schools made reports of the work thus far done, 
and the committee to revise the constitution and 
by-laws of the Alumni Association submitted a 
preliminary draft. 

A committee on alumni scholarships consisting

iS7 



of Messrs. Sills, chairman, Snow and Ives was 
appointed. 

Mr. Roberts was added to the committee to re- 
vise the Constitution and by-laws of the Alumni 
Association to give special attention to the 
method of electing members to the Council. 

The next meeting of the Council will probably 
be held in Portland some time in January. 

The Council seeks the aid of all interested in 
the College and to that end invites suggestions 
and criticism. Communications may be sent to 
any member of the Council, to the president, 
Philip Dana, Westbrook, Maine, or to the secre- 
tary, George P. Hyde, 201 Devonshire St., Bos- 
ton, Mass. 



FRESHMAN-SOPHOMORE GAME SATURDAY 

The men in charge of the Freshman-Sopho- 
more squads, both report conditions favorable for 
a good game on next Saturday afternoon. The 
two classes have turned out well for the work and 
two good teams have been developed. The prob- 
able line-up for the Sophomores is as follows :

The subject of Dr. Goodrich's discussion at 
Bible class next Sunday will be "The Develop- 
ment of the Idea of God in the Old Testament." 
All college men are cordially invited. 

The Sunday School at Pejepscot will open the 
first Sunday after Thanksgiving. The following 
men will be teachers : Creeden '17, Norton '18 
and Albion '18. 

Twelve men have offered their sen ices in the 
tutoring bureau for the purpose of helping non- 
fraternity Freshmen. Many have already made 
use of this bureau.

Prentiss. 

Hon. Carl E. Milliken will speak Dec. 3 instead 
of Dec. 11, at the Y.M.C.A. meeting. The cause 
of the change is that the Ben Greet players will 
be in Brunswick on the eleventh. 

About 250 postals have been sent out recently 
to nearby ministers explaining the plan of Bow- 
doin deputations. Deputations have been ar- 
ranged for Portland, Bath and other places. 

The Brunswick Boys' Association will begin its 
work on Nov. 30. H. N. Dorman, a first year 
medical student, will be the instructor. Chapman 
'17 will have charge of the social work. Other 
college men will have the boys for games and 
other amusements in the evening. 

A number of college men plan to join the 
Church on the Hill Dec. 6. This transfer from 
their own churches is only temporary. 

Dr. John Hastings Quint '97 of Chelsea, Mass.. 
former pastor of the Church on the Hill, will 
speak Nov. 19 at the Y.M.C.A. meeting. 

There will be a meeting of the Y.M.C A. Cabi- 
net, Thursday evening, Nov. 19, at 8 o'clock. 

The evening class for mill-hands is held Mon- 
day and Friday nights at the High School. Mc- 
Conaughy '17 is in charge of the work. All those 
who were in the classes last year have returned 
and ten more in addition. There is one man who 
speaks neither French, German nor English. He 
is studying English. 



DEBATE IN ENGLISH 5 

The first debate of the year in English 5 was 
held in Hubbard Hall last Tuesday evening, on 
the subject, Resolved, That Proclamation Night 
should be abolished. Kuhn '15 presided. Eight 
minutes was given for constructive argument and 
four for rebuttal. For the affirmative were Rod- 
ick '15 and Brewster '16; for the negative, Wright 
-'15 and Demmons '15. The decision of the judges 
Was for the affirmative. 



MAINE EFFICIENCY CONFERENCE 

The first Maine Efficiency Conference at Au- 
gusta last Friday, Saturday and Sunday was a 
pronounced success. The purpose of the con- 
ference was to help the country communities es- 
pecially, and experts of national repute discussed 
these problems. Dr. Whittier delivered a paper 
on "The Social Evil" and Professor Files of the 
•Commission on Rural Life reported on "Good 



Roads." Several hundred delegates from all 
parts of the State attended the conference. In 
addition to Dr. Whittier and Professor Files the 
Bowdoin faculty was represented by Professors 
Hormell, McConaughy and McLean, Dr. Cope- 
land and Mr. Langley. In the student delegation 
were: Winter '16, Bowdoin '17, McConaughy 
'17 and Call, Freese, Albion, MacCormick, 
Coombs, Batchelder and Wass of 191 8. 



Cluo ano Council Meetings 

The Classical Club meets tonight instead of 
Thursday evening, as previously announced. 

A meeting of the Athletic Council, to decide on 
the matter of the baseball coach, was held last 
night, after the Orient had gone to press. 

The Chemical Club has temporarily disbanded, 
owing to the small number who have shown in- 
terest in it. 

The Mandolin Club held rehearsals Monday 
and Thursday of last week. The final trials are 
to be held shortly after Thanksgiving. 

The Monday Night Club will hold its first 
meeting the Monday after Thanksgiving. 

The Bowdoin Publishing Company held its first 
meeting of the year Nov. 6. The committee de- 
cided to run a series of jokes each week on the 
pages given to advertisements. 



€f)e Dtber Colleges 

The test case that may be brought up by the 
Massachusetts Socialists in regard to the waving 
of the Harvard banner is especially interesting. 
The Supreme Court of that state in a recent de- 
cision, in interpreting the "red flag - ' statute of the 
Bay State decreed that it is illegal to carry any 
red emblem, even if "it bears also an inscription 
or device of another color." As a result of a re- 
cent conviction, the Socialists have asked for the 
arrest, as a test case, of anyone waving a crim- 
son banner at the Harvard games in the Stadium. 

The Tufts College gymnasium squad which is 
already in full action is allowed to play soccer on 
the campus as a relief from the tedious indoor 
drill. 

Many big college elevens will stage post-season 
games for the express benefit of the Belgians. 
Negotiations are in progress for a game between 
two All-American teams, selected by the coaches 
of all the college teams and played in the new 
Yale Bowl. Such a contest would realize nearly 
a quarter of a million dollars for the relief of 
those who are undergoing great hardships be- 
cause of the European war.

At New Haven plans are being made to park 
between 8000 and 9000 automobiles on the day of 
the Harvard-Yale game. Several hundred men 
will guard the cars, bringing the total of workers 
at the Yale Bowl that day to 11,000 men. 

Nine hundred students at Yale University, are 
earning at least a part of their expenses during 
the active college year. Journalists have the call, 
with an average of over $108 for each man. The 
total amount earned is $150,000. 

Twelve stained glass windows, representing 
growth in literature have been placed in the Uni- 
versity Library at Yale. They are in memory of 
Professor George Fisher, a former professor in 
the Yale Divinity School. 

The University of Cambridge in England has 
extended to the professors and students of Lou- 
vain University the use of its libraries, labora- 
tories, lectures and lecture rooms, without pay- 
ment of the usual fees, in order that the work of 
the wrecked Belgian institution ma} 7 suffer as lit- 
tle as possible from the interruption caused by 
the war. The invitation has been accepted. Over 
seventy members of French and Belgian univer- 
sities are enjoying this generous offer, and in 
company with their professors are pursuing their 
studies in peace. 

The band at the University of Pennsylvania is 
to be supported by the sale of small buttons which 
are bought by the students and worn on their 
coats. 

Tables showing the scholarships of different 
teams at Tulane University, Louisiana, show 
that the debaters have the highest average, with 
a total of .873. The track team follows next with 
an average of .766. Other averages are: foot- 
ball team .756, baseball team .742, and basketball 
team .606. 

The Intercollegiate Socialist Society, formed 
for the purpose of promoting an intelligent in- 
terest in Socialism among college men and 
women, has begun the college year with sixty 
study chapters in the principal colleges of the 
country. All students interested in the study of 
Socialism and allied subjects are eligible for 
membership. 

Oliver A. Reller, captain of Cornell's track 
team, who was injured recently in a motorcycle 
accident, will probably never run again. Reller's 
loss will be a severe blow to the Ithacan team. 
He is one of the best sprinters in any American 
college. For two years he has been a point win- 
ner for Cornell in the intercollegiates, both times 
scoring second in the 100-yard dash. 

The recentlv announced financial statement of 



the Columbia Athletic Association shows a bal- 
ance of $8.65 after all obligations, aggregating 
$9,699.28, had been met. The dues from students, 
faculty and alumni netted the association $7,380. 
Basketball and baseball were the only sports to 
show a profit. The sport which required the big- 
gest expense was the crew, $3,995.27 being the 
rowing expenditure. Freshman athletics came 
out on top with a balance of $29.08. 

Wesleyan has inaugurated a novel plan for 
running a training table without incurring any 
additional expense. The men on the football 
squad eat together at one of the fraternity houses. 
Each house takes the table for two days, and dur- 
ing that period sends to each of the other houses, 
a number of its members equal to the number the 
second house has on the squad. 

At Bloomington, Indiana, the football team has 
been practicing under the cover of a huge circus 
tent. The reason for such close secrecy is the ex- 
posed situation of the athletic field, which may be 
easily watched from two different stations out- 
side of the high board fence. 

Seventy-five students at Columbia were ar- 
rested after the New York elections last week on 
the charge of illegal registration, instigated by 
the Board of Elections. None were convicted 
and Chief Magistrate McAdoo said the course 
pursued by the Superintendent of Elections was 
improper and that its apparent purpose was only 
to annoy the students. 

It is thought probable that the percentage of 
men at Wesleyan eligible to election to Phi Beta 
Kappa will be somewhat decreased. The number 
of students is increasing every year, and the pres- 
ent percentage of 20 per cent, of the members of 
the graduating class is considered too large by 
many members of Phi Beta Kappa. At present 
there is a movement on foot to reduce the per- 
centage eligible from 20 per cent, to 15 per cent. 
or 12 per cent. 



CDe ili&rarp Cable 

Through the kindness of its business editor, 
Professor Arthur H. Nason, Bowdoin '99, the 
Colonnade, a monthly magazine published by the 
Andiron Club of New York, is sent to the Bow- 
doin Library. According to its own statement, the 
Colonnade is a non-popular magazine, "non-popu- 
lar in that it appeals riot to the general reader but 
to the discriminating." The magazine, by reason 
of the unique character of the club by which it is 
edited and published, has been fortunate in se-

curing as its contributors a group of men and 
women of notable ability. Among those who have 
contributed to recent issues are : Professor John 
Erskine of Columbia, Professor Herman H. 
Home of New York University, Elmer Ellsworth 
Brown, Chancellor of New York University, 
John W. Draper and Annette Wynne. The con- 
tributions take the form of essays, many excel- 
lent poems and an occasional short story or 
sketch.

Professor George R. Elliott has invited his 
class in poetry to his home this evening to meet 
Professor George H. Palmer, the Annie Talbot 
Cole lecturer. Professor Palmer will be in the 
Longfellow room in Hubbard Hall from 3 to 5 
o'clock on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday af- 
ternoons to meet students who desire to consult 
him on literary, philosophical or vocational ques- 
tions. 

At the last meeting of the faculty, Hon. Payson 
Smith, Litt.D., State Superintendent of Schools, 
met with them to discuss the relations of the col- 
lege to the secondary schools of Maine. 

Professor George R. Elliott addressed a young 
people's meeting at the Church on the Hill Sun- 
day evening on "The Morality of Ideas."

Hall of Delta Upsilon. 

November 12, 1914. 
With profound regret the Bowdoin Chapter re- 
cords the death of Brother Frank Emerson Brad- 
bury of the Class of 1896. 

High-minded and conscientious in all his rela- 
tions, Brother Bradbury achieved marked success 
in his profession, and was recognized as one of 
the most promising of the younger men of the 
Suffolk bar. Always loyal to college and class, 
to family and friends, he won the esteem and con- 
fidence of all who came within the wide range of 
his acquaintance. Therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the Bowdoin Chapter extend its 
sincere sympathy to his family in their bereave- 
ment.

FOOTBALL CAPTAIN AND LETTERS 

At a meeting of the football team last Tuesday 
noon, Leadbetter '16 was elected captain for next 
year. He has played on the 'varsity for three 
years, his Freshman year at tackle, last year at 
end, and this year at tackle and fullback. 

The following men receive football "B's" for 
this season's work: Captain Lewis '15, M. C. 
Moulton '15, Floyd '15, Austin '15, MacCormick 
'15, Brewster '16, H. Foster '16, Leadbetter '16, 
Wood '16, J. B. Moulton '16, Dyar '16, Stone '17, 
Shumway '17, Colbath '17, Chapman '17, C. Fos- 
ter '17 and MacDonald '15, manager. 



COOGAN WILL COACH BASEBALL 

A contract has been signed with Daniel M. 
Coogan as baseball coach for the coming season. 
He is well known here as he coached the team in 
1913 which won the state championship. During 
the past year he coached the Georgetown Uni- 
versity nine. 

At the University of Pennsylvania he played 
on the 'varsity team three years and was captain 
in his Senior year. During his Senior year at 
college he was considered one of the best college 
catchers in the country. He has coached some 
of the best college teams in the eastern states. 
For seven years he was baseball coach at Cornell, 
and withdrew from there because a coach was se- 
cured for both baseball and football, in order to 
strengthen the latter team. Previous to his 
coaching at Cornell he coached the Columbia nine. 

Coogan has played in the Tri-State League and 
on the Washington Americans, and has acted as 
manager of several other professional teams. 



ATHLETES STAND HIGH IN COURSES 

According to a census, compiled especially for 
the Orient, of the standing of the men on the 
various athletic teams last spring and this fall, 
the members of the teams in general attain a rank 
in their studies higher than the average. This is 
due to the fact that the college authorities do not 
allow men of low scholarship to represent the 
college in athletics. As is seen by the following 
figures only one team fell below the average 
scholarship of the college. In computing the 
standing the same basis has been used as that 



upon which the Friar Cup was awarded, namely, 
A equals 4, B equals 3, C equals 2, D equals 1, E 
equals minus 2.

TEAMS FOR LOWER CLASS DEBATE 

Trials for the Freshman-Sophomore debate 
were held in the Debating Room in Hubbard Hall 
Monday afternoon, Nov. 16. Blanchard, Crosby, 
Moran and Crehore, alternate, were selected for 
the Sophomore team and Jacob, Matthews, San- 
derson and Haskell, alternate, will represent the 
Freshmen. Edwards '16 presided and the judges 
were Professors Davis and Mitchell and Mr. 
Langley. The debate will be held Friday even- 
ing, Dec. 11. Kuhn '15 is coaching the Sopho- 
mores and Talbot '15 has charge of the Fresh- 
men. 



THANKSGIVING DINNER ON THE CAMPUS 

Some of the men who expect to be here over 
Thanksgiving have planned to make the day more 
cheery by having a celebration of their own. The 
Betas have loaned their house, and the present 
plans are for a general "get together" there, from 
five to eight Thanksgiving afternoon. Informal- 
ity will rule, and no invitations of any sort are 
being sent out; any fellow who is here for that 
day and wants to be social is urged to come over ; 
there is no expense at all. Thanks to the kindness 
of some of Bowdoin's friends there will be plenty 
to eat, an open fire to watch while one smokes, a 
Victrola, lent by Thompson, to play, and so it is 
hoped everyone will have the "homey" feeling 
that ought to go with Thanksgiving. 



REVIEW OF FOOTBALL SEASON 

Of the 1914 football season little can be said 
vithout pouring hot oil into wounds still fresh. 
From the standpoint of victory it has been disas- 



163 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



trous. Beginning after a victory over Amherst 
in the first game of the season, the team has suf- 
fered a line of defeats broken only by the victory 
over Boston College. Retrospection in this case 
is an uncomfortable process, yet something of 
comment is due the men who in the face of dis- 
couragement and defeat have given what they 
had in the support of a lost cause. Of the letter 
men, five will be lost by graduation. These are 
Capt. Lewis, M. Moulton, Floyd, Austin and Mac- 
Cormick. Eleven letter men will be left, Capt.- 
elect Leadbetter '16, H. Foster '16, Brewster '16, 
J. Moulton '16, Wood '16, Dyar '16, Colbath '17, 
Stone '17, Shumway '17, C. Foster '17 and Chap- 
man '17. 

Capt. Lewis has played an increasingly strong 
game at tackle as the season went on. His punt- 
ing in the Maine game was of the highest quality 
and throughout the season his work in this line 
has been the backbone of the defense. 

Manning Moulton at guard made his first ap- 
pearance this year and proved a strong man, es- 
pecially on the defense. He has been found at the 
Tbottom of most of the pile-ups when Bowdoin 
held for downs and has played a low, hard-charg- 
ing game. 

At the other guard Jim Brewster has shown 
flashes of brilliancy against a background of con- 
sistent playing. He has been the strongest man 
in the line, especially in the early games of the 
season. He has been in every minute of every 
game. 

At center Stone has served his first year and 
has played a steady game. His passing' has been 
especially good. 

The other tackle has been filled by Burleigh 
Moulton during a large part of the championship 
games. He has played a much stronger game as 
he gained in experience and in the Maine game 
broke up many of their shift plays. 

Austin has finished four years of faithful ser- 
vice by filling in at guard and tackle. 

At right end Chapman and Floyd have alter- 
nated with about equal success. Both have played 
hard, gritty games and the former, though in- 
jured through two games, has played a game 
which should make him increasingly valuable in 
the next two years. 

At left end Clif Foster and Wood have alter- 
nated. Foster has been fast down the field while 
Wood, in spite of his lack of weight, has been 
strong at breaking up plays. 

Behind the line Capt.-elect Leadbetter at full- 
back has been the mainstay of the backfield on 
defense and his heavy line-plunging has been re- 
sponsible for many of Bowdoin's infrequent 



gains. His choice as captain is a most popular 
one with the players and the student body. His 
enthusiasm will do much to put fire into his team. 

Colbath at half-back has been a strong defen- 
sive player and has often shown his speed when 
an opposing player got away on a long run. He 
has been the one permanent man in the backfield- 
and his work has suffered only from the constant 
changes in his running mates. 

Herb Foster, who has been handicapped by in- 
juries almost all season, has been unable to play 
the brilliant game he showed in the last two vears, 
but has been a valuable man as long as he was 
able to stay in the game. He has given a fine ex- 
hibition of grit. 

Dyar has filled in at full-back and showed 
promise in spite of inexperience. 

At quarterback Shumway has proved the find of 
the season. He has used his head well, handled 
punts steadily, and on the defense has been a 
sure, hard tackier. In spite of injuries which 
made it hard for him to walk, he played a bril- 
liant game at all times. 

MacCormick substituted at quarter during part 
of the State games and through three-quarters of 
the Tufts game. In this game his defensive work 
was strong, especially in breaking up forward 
passes. 

Manager MacDonald has looked after the 
needs of the team in an excellent manner and has 
shown great financial ability. He will turn over 
to his successor a well-ordered system on a firm • 
financial basis. 

Coach McCann has given much conscientious 
effort to the attempt to develop a winning combi- 
nation and Trainer Magee has worked hard to 
keep thei squad in condition in spite of excessive 
heat during the first few weeks. 



NEITHER TEAM SCORES 
Neither team was able to plow its way through 
the snow drifts of the Delta for a touchdown in 
the annual Freshman-Sophomore game Saturday, 
and the game, shortened to four seven-minute pe- 
riods on account of the snow, ended in a scoreless 
tie. The players of both teams were clad in 
sweaters and gloves, and when they appeared on 
the Delta, only half an hour late, they were 
greeted with hearty cheers by the spectators, most 
of whom, by the way, disappeared between the 
halves, never to return. 

The teams seemed quite evenly matched al- 
though it was difficult to judge their respective 
merits on such a field. The Sophomores had the 
advantage with their heavy line, although the 
Freshmen backfield played a fast game. The 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



164 



Freshmen kept the ball in Sophomoric territory 
during the greater part of the game. Neither 
goal was in danger, except in the third period 
when Casper blocked a punt on the 20 yard line, 
but the Sophomores recovered the ball. Phillips, 
the snappy quarter, Captain Campbell and Mc- 
Conaughy starred for the Sophomores, while the 
Freshman honors go to the backfield, Hanson, 
Macdonald, Nevens and Peacock, and to Captain 
Stanley and Casper in the line. 

The Sophomores kicked off to Hanson, who ad- 
vanced the ball to the 30 yard line. Peacock ad- 
vanced the ball to the center of the field where 
the Sophomores recovered it, but were unable to 
gain much ground. Hanson attempted a forward 
pass, but it was intercepted by Phillips on the 25 
yard line. The first period closed with the ball 
on the Sophomore 27 yard line. 

In the second quarter, the ball was kept well in 
the center of the field with no important gains. 
Both teams were penalized for being offside. The 
Sophomores, with their heavier men, frequently 
broke through the Freshman line, but were un- 
able to keep the ball out of their own territory. 
At the end of the first half, the ball was on the 
Sophomore 40 yard line. 

The Freshmen kicked off to Phillips at the 
opening of the second half. The game here be- 
came more open. The Sophomores were forced 
to punt on the 35 yard line, but Casper broke 
through and blocked the punt. Phillips, however, 
fell on the ball and retained possession of it. The 
Freshmen then got the ball on downs. Two for- 
ward passes attempted by Hanson were broken 
up by the Sophomores. The ball was on the 
Sophomore's 35 yard line at the end of the third 
quarter. 

The ball was carried into the Freshman terri- 
tory for a few moments, but in the last minutes 
of play the Freshman made a spurt, and with hard 
line plunging and two clever forward passes be- 
tween Nevens and Hanson, advanced well toward 
the other goal. The game closed with the Fresh- 
men within 15 yards of the Sophomore goal.

An Interesting Communication 

We gladly give up the editorial page of this is- 
sue to a communication from the Philadelphia 
alumni. We feel that much of what they say is 
an expression of the opinion of most of Bow- 
doin"s alumni and undergraduate body. In men- 
tioning the possibility of an error in the system 
of administering athletics at Bowdoin, it seems 
only fair to the Athletic Council to weigh thor- 
oughly obstacles which prevent actions which 
they would be only too glad to take. It also seems 
just to suspend judgment on the Athletic Council 
until they have had an opportunity to act in what 
approaches a crisis in Bowdoin athletics, such as 
the present situation is generally conceded to be. 
It is safe to assume that the Council has not been 
at the pulse of Bowdoin athletics with complete 
indifference to the condition of the patient or with 



lack of desire to administer effective remedies. 
The actions of the Council may at times seem to 
be narrow and too conservative, but these actions 
should be judged only in the light of conditions 
which tend to hamper and restrict the activities 
of this body. It is easy to criticise the Council 
for actions such as the decision not to hold a dual 
track meet with Trinity next May. This case 
may serve well as an example of conditions to 
which it was impossible and inadvisable to com- 
ply, yet to the observer it appears as a narrow 
severance of desirable out-of-state relations. 

We hope that the alumni will enter actively 
into a discussion of the ideas expressed in the 
following communication and that practical plans 
for carrying out these ideas will be presented. 
We believe thoroughly in skilled coaching and in 
competition with colleges maintaining our stand- 
ards of scholarship and athletic honesty and that 
such things may only be secured if the alumni 
stand behind the student body with advice and 
support. Various schemes for concentrating and 
utilizing this support are being discussed on the 
campus and further discussion by the alumni will 
be timely.

MORE MONEY FOR THE COACHES ! 
BETTER GAMES FOR THE TEAM ! 

The Bowdoin football team has just closed the 
most disastrous season in its history. We do not 
believe that this is assignable to any lack of grit 
and determination on the part of the players or 
enthusiasm on the part of the undergraduates, 
but rather to an error in the system of adminis- 
tering athletics at Bowdoin. 

Football has come to be a game of skill. The 
"old days" when sheer weight or blind determina- 
tion could win games are passed, and with them 
the simple system of coaching the team has be- 
come obsolete. While others have realized this 
and moved with the changing times, we have 
kept our eyes steadfastly upon the "old days" and 
left our system as it was. The results are ob- 
vious ; superior coaching has put our antagonists 
out of our reach. It will be urged that our fail- 
ures are due to lack of material. We beat Am- 
herst at the start of the season when both teams 
were untrained and victory rested with the 
strong alone. Men who saw the Amherst game 
and watched her play subsequently have declared 
that had our game with her been played two 
weeks later we would certainly have lost it. Su- 
perior training and coaching raised her out of 
our class. 

Does this need to continue? Lack of funds 



BOWDOIN ORIENT

will be urged, but we feel certain that funds can 
be had. We have not fallen behind our rivals 
in other matters involving the expenditure of 
much larger amounts. The alumni will co-oper- 
ate cheerfully with the undergraduates in increas- 
ing the football levy. It only remains, then, to 
initiate a campaign for procuring the money. If 
our present instrument is inadequate for this we 
must devise another. We must depart from our 
time-worn precedents and give more money for 
the coaches! Alumni are tired of reading the 
accounts of useless defeats ! 

Often indeed, we who are out of New England 
look through the papers for any mention of our 
games in vain. The reason is that our schedule 
is limited to little known opponents. We need 
better games for the team! Efforts should be 
made at once, even at some sacrifice, to establish 
permanent relationship with Amherst, Williams, 
Wesleyan and Trinity. Directly the contrary 
seems to be the policy of our present athletic ad- 
ministration. We note with concern that our dual 
track meet with Trinity, established two years 
ago, is to be discontinued this year. Our Council 
ought to realize the prime importance not only of 
maintaining our present out-of-Maine relation- 
ships but of extending them at once. 

It will be argued that geography is against us, 
but distances are not in our case prohibitive. 
Portland could be made the base of our home 
games, and Portland is certainly more accessible 
than Hanover, New Hampshire. 

There is another and more reasonable objection 
against building up an out-of-Maine schedule. It 
is the fact that we have such a heavy list of 
games within the state. There is obviously but 
one action open to us and that is to break away 
from our precedents in this matter too. In the 
days when intercollegiate athletic relations were 
not so widely developed Bowdoin, like all other 
colleges, limited her sphere of operations to her 
immediate neighbors. Before the days of modern 
coaching, it was easy to beat them. It was also 
pleasant. Later when it became a difficult feat it 
absorbed our attention. A firm precedent grew 
up that these games were essential to our very 
existence. The tradition is still alive but condi- 
tions have materially altered. In the first place 
more than 90 per cent, of Bowdoin men were for- 
merlv from the state of Maine. This is no longer 
true, there is an ever increasing contingency from 
outside. This is a natural development because 
an old, traditionally liberal college of the class of 
Bowdoin must make its appeal to a certain type 
of men — a type which is in the minority. Maine 
alone is no longer able to supply them. Techni- 
cal schools and business have claimed their share 



of her young men. It is then necessary to draw 
from the more cosmopolitan market, a thing 
which Bowdoin has been gradually and uncon- 
sciously doing. This new element is not particu- 
larly interested in beating the Maine colleges; it 
would rather have games with institutions of sim- 
ilar ideals and standards. A more fundamental 
reason for discontinuing our full schedule of 
Maine games is that they are no longer fair to 
Bowdoin. Of how much concern is it to us to be 
beaten by individuals who have already made un- 
successful efforts to enter Bowdoin? This sort 
of thing goes on season after season and it is be- 
ginning to have its effect — an effect which is 
deadly to the athletic spirit of Bowdoin for it 
lessens our interest in the success or failure of 
our teams in games which we all know to be ob- 
viously unfair. Would it not be much better to 
league ourselves with colleges which maintain 
our own high standards and of whose athletic 
honesty there cannot be the least question ? Our 
interest would be stimulated, our audience en- 
larged, our returns increased. Some will doubt- 
less contend that it is impossible financially. At 
first we might lose by it, but Portland would ral- 
ly to our home games if we could take the step of 
bringing the football teams of well-known out of 
state colleges into Maine. 

Let the alumni get together. A committee com- 
posed of representatives from Boston, New York, 
Philadelphia and the counties of Maine should be 
formed immediately. Such steps have already 
been taken ; this letter is to bring it before the at- 
tention of the Athletic Council and the under- 
graduates. The native pluck and strength of 
Bowdoin must have the advantage of intelligent 
administration or it must continue to be the vic- 
tim of many and inconsequential foes. It is time 
for Bowdoin to wake up and take her "place in 
the sun."

PENNSYLVANIA ALUMNI ORGANIZE 

The following report of the organization of 
Bowdoin Alumni of Pennsylvania has been re- 
ceived by the Orient. The Orient congratulates 
the new organization on its undertaking and ex- 
presses the hope for successful co-operation with 
the College. 

Philadelphia can no longer be called justly a 
"slow town" as far as the Bowdoin Alumni lo- 
cated in and near there are concerned. Hitherto 
the number of graduates in that city and sur- 
rounding territory has been so small that it has 
never been found worth while to organize a local 



167 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



alumni association. Graduates residing- in Penn- 
sylvania have been included in the New York 
Association, but since Philadelphia is 90 miles 
from New York such membership was nominal, 
to say the least. During the last few years sev- 
eral ineffectual attempts have been made to round 
up the Pennsylvania "grads" and start something. 
Nothing ever came of it because the Bowdoin 
portion of the population seemed to be of a rather 
transcient character but on Tuesday, Nov. 17, 
something started. 

Fifteen Bowdoin "grads" living in or near 
Philadelphia had an informal dinner and in the 
course of the evening's conversation discovered 
that Pennsylvania has enough (about forty) 
Bowdoin graduates within its borders to make the 
forming of an independent organization not only 
advisable but imperative. Credit for the initial 
gathering is largely due to Myrton A. Bryant '04. 
He assumed all the responsibility of an im- 
promptu secretaryship and made all the arrange- 
ments for the dinner. After the dinner all those 
•who were not prevented by engagements ad- 
journed to Bryant's office nearby and as a result 
■of that session the budding Pennsylvania organi- 
zation promises some surprises to the other asso- 
ciations and to the undergraduate body. That, 
however, is another story. 

Since the meeting the writer has had assurance 
from Joseph B. Roberts '95, secretary of the New 
York Association, that not only have the alumni 
of Pennsylvania full liberty to do as they please 
in the matter of organizing an independent asso- 
ciation but he also on behalf of the New York 
alumni, wishes 'em luck in the undertaking. On 
or about Jan. 20, 1915, the latest lusty infant in- 
dustry of Pennsylvania will have another meet- 
ing. A definite organization scheme will then be 
considered. In the meanwhile the matter is in 
the hands of a committee composed of M. A. 
Bryant '04. D. E. Owen '89 and Paul L. White 
'14. 

Present at the dinner were: Dr. Albert R. 
Moulton, Medic '76, Daniel E. Owen '89, Dr. 
Philip H. Moore '94, Alpheus G. A^arney '98, 
Francis L. Lavertu '99, Lester D. Tyler '01, Ben- 
jamin P. Hamilton '02, Myrton A. Bryant '04, 
Harold C. Wilson '07, John W. Leydon '07. John 
Halford '07, H. J. Colbath '10, Harold N. Burn- 
ham '11, Fletcher Twombly '13 and Paul L. 
White '14. 

ANNIE TALBOT COLE LECTURES 

Each year the Annie Talbot Cole foundation 
hrings to' Bowdoin some interpreter of the spirits 
and beauty of fine arts. President Hyde said in 



introducing Professor George Herbert Palmer 
that he was one who for forty years had per- 
formed this mission at Harvard. Monday even- 
ing Professor Palmer opened his course of lec- 
tures on "Masters of Modern Poetry" — Words- 
worth, Tennyson and Browning. He deplored the 
fact that many people read poetry for merely sen- 
timental relaxation and he plead for its serious 
perusal. He made clear the contrast in form and 
theme of the classic and romantic writings of the 
eighteenth century. The classical period empha- 
sized the city type of man ; the romantic had to do 
with nature, and the study of man with nature as 
a background. 

Nature was a thing to be worshipped, some- 
thing semi-divine. The classicist could not un- 
derstand this. Wordsworth was the first to rec- 
ognize and develop this sense of reverence for a 
world of mystery, laying much stress on that bet- 
ter half of the world which the classicist cast 
aside because not tangible, not "real," for his 
classification. Wordsworth was of that class of 
nature poets who make nature reflect the moods 
of man. Enthusiasm had been banished by the 
literary world, and was a thing almost unknown 
in England with the exception of Wesley's fer- 
vor of Methodism. 

But in 1762 the romantic writers were led into 
studying folk-lore such as Percy's Reliques. Pro- 
fessor Palmer, in outlining Wordsworth's life, 
showed the influence of circumstances upon its 
course. He divided it into four periods, the early 
training, the mastery, the decline of power but 
growth of reputation, and subsequent oblivion to 
1850, his death. The Lyrical Ballads, published 
in 181 5, Professor Palmer called the Magna 
Charta of Modem Poetry and paid honest tribute 
to its influence on Coleridge and Dorothy Words- 
worth. Professor Palmer said that Wordsworth's 
gospel consisted in the fundamental principles, 
and ideals of the common man, linking him with 
nature. In conclusion the speaker read certain 
selections, among them We Are Seven, The Daf- 
fodils, The Solitary Reaper and the Ode on the 
Imitations of Immortality. He characterized 
Wordsworth as the poet, who, sometimes seem- 
ing dull to youth, is satisfying and of increasing 
appeal to the experienced reader. 

TENNYSON 

In his second lecture Professor Palmer, speak- 
ing on Tennyson, alluded in beginning to the long 
poetic span of steady production of the poet and 
to his exclusive devotion to poetry as in art. 
Tennyson was the careful artist. His life had 
such incidents as might have seemed planned to 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



168 



shape a career. Four periods are marked off in 
his work by choice of theme : The struggle of 
faith and circumstances ; the narrative dealing 
with the structure of society and social questions, 
and the history of England and glorification of 
the land. 

As to Tennyson's themes, the speaker cited The 
Princess with its embodiment of the ideas of the 
time on woman's education ; his presentation of 
England's landscape beauty ; his distinctive merit 
as the poet of the stability of love and married 
comradeship ; and the lecturer dwelt especially on 
Tennyson's study to adjust the scientific tenden- 
cies of the age then culminating, with his own 
craving for a more fundamental view of man and 
the universe. 

BROWNING 

In his final lecture Professor Palmer took as 
his subject Browning, the second of the two 
great figures in the poetic world in the nineteenth 
century. He proceeded first to show the many 
ways in which Tennyson and Browning differed. 
Although these two wrote at the same period 
there was no jealousy between them; their qual- 
ities were supplementary. 

But like the other two poets, Browning had a 
mission of his own. It was to take up romanti- 
cism where Wordsworth had left it. He must 
make his characters individuals. He did this and 
the characters who go to make up his works are a 
varied company. 

Browning's life, too, was divided into four pe- 
riods, — the period of youth, of experiment, of 
mastery, and of decline. His whole life he was 
allowed to read what he pleased and in this way 
he became interested in poetry. He tried drama, 
but like Tennyson he failed to make a success of 
it. In conclusion Professor Palmer said that he 
hoped these three lectures would only be the 
awakening of a desire to read the works of these 
three great poets, Wordsworth, Tennyson and 
Browning. 



Equipment will be given out at the first meeting 
of each class. Lockers can be obtained on appli- 
cation at the treasurer's office. 



PHYSICAL TRAINING BEGINS 

Gymnasium work will begin Monday, Nov. 30. 
The usual course of instruction will prevail in 
regular gymnasium, while the baseball and track 
squads will have work pertaining especially to 
those branches of athletics. The hours for gym 
work follow : 

Senior, Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 
4.30 ; Junior, Tuesday and Thursday at 4.30, Fri- 
day at 3.30 ; Sophomore, Monday, Wednesday and 
Thursday at 3.30; Freshman, Monday, Wednes- 
day and Thursday at 11.30. The hours for base- 
ball and track have not yet been announced. 



ADDRESSES ON "THE COLLEGE MAN" 

A special series of addresses will be given dur- 
ing the next four months on "The College Man." 
Phases of college life will be discussed by men 
who are well known and who are authorities on 
the topics they present. These addresses will be 
given Thursday evenings, in the Debating Room 
in the Library. President Aley of the University 
of Maine will speak on Jan. 2, on "The College 
Man's Obligations," and Principal Stearns of An- 
dover, on March 11, on "The College Man's Ath- 
letics." 

At 7.15, Dec. 3, Hon. Carl E. Milliken of Island 
Falls will give the first address on "The College 
Man and the State." Mr. Milliken is one of the 
leading young men in Maine political circles. He 
was president of the last Maine Senate, and has 
been prominent in legislative affairs at Augusta 
for some time. He is known throughout the state 
for his interest in reform and religious activities. 
A graduate of Bates, he knows the college man, 
and can well speak on his opportunities and obli- 
gations to the state. Mr. Milliken has spoken fre- 
quently at Bowdoin, and was one of the leaders 
of the recent Efficiency Conference at Augusta. 



APPEAL TO BOWDOIN TO AID BELGIANS 

A letter from E. B. Smith '11, now a graduate 
student at Princeton, has been received recently, 
asking Bowdoin to co-operate with Princeton in 
sending clothing to the Belgian refugees at Cam- 
bridge University. Over 1000 wounded Belgians 
are now on the university cricket field and in the 
hospital. A Cambridge don, well known in Amer- 
ican colleges, writes, "If you could issue a rousing 
appeal and send some clothing as quickly as pos- 
sible — all y sort of clothing and underclothing: 
suits, overcoats, hats, caps, boots, slippers, hand- 
kerchiefs, sleeping garments, we should be eter- 
nally thankful. Practically everything is needed 
except ball dresses." The Freshman Religious 
Committee intends to make a canvass of the col- 
lege Wednesday Dec. 2 for securing old clothing 
of any sort which students wish to donate. Old 
books and magazines will also be gratefully re- 
ceived. This collection, however, will not take 
the place of the annual donation to Dr. Grenfell 
of Labrador, which will be later. Many other 
colleges and universities are making similar col- 
lections for the aid of needy Belgians and it 
seems quite fitting for Bowdoin to move in this 
direction.

PRESIDENT HYDE SPEAKS IN BOSTON 

At a dinner Friday night given by the Boston 
City Club in honor of the delegates to the annual 
meeting of the Associated Colleges of New Eng- 
land, President Hyde said that college education 
had been too democratic intellectually and that 
the great mass has been dealt with to the neglect 
of the brilliant minority. "We must," he said, 
"make the college intellectually aristocratic; we 
must run limited trains and charge a correspond- 
ing higher fare." He was for more rigid en- 
trance requirements and harder work by students.

Cluo anD Council Spectings 

The Student Council met last Tuesday evening 
in Flubbard Hall. A committee was appointed to 
publish a letter which has been drawn up by sev- 
eral members of the A.S.B.C, and distribute it to 
the alumni of the College. The letter makes a 
plea for better developed men for participation 
in undergraduate activities. It was voted to rec- 
ommend inter-class soccer to the Athletic Council 
and that class games should be encouraged and 
some definite plan or schedule be adopted for such 
activities during the winter. It was voted to es- 
tablish an employment bureau by the supervision 
of a committee to classify the various means 
whereby undergraduates can earn money at Bow- 
doin. Also the Council wished to go on record 
as favoring the taking of photographs of under- 



graduate activities and campus scenes by town 
photographers. 

A meeting of the Classical Club was held at the 
home of Professor Nixon Nov. 17. There were 
about 25 members present and 17 new members 
were admitted. Regular routine business was dis- 
cussed and it was decided to arrange for speak- 
ers for the meetings during the winter. The next 
meeting will be held at the home of Professor 
Sills on Dec. 17.

'56. — Rev. Henry Farrar has recently removed 
from Gilead to Yarmouth, Maine. His post office 
address is now R. F. D., Yarmouth, Maine. 

'58. — Hon. Lysander Hill, who died at Chicago, 
Oct. 30, after a long illness, was a leading mem- 
ber of the Illinois bar for more than twenty 
years. Judge Hill was born in Maine, near Rock- 
land, in 1834, was graduated from Bowdoin Col- 
lege in 1858 and admitted to the bar in i860, after 
reading law in the office of the late A. P. Gould 
at Thomaston. He fought in the Civil War as a 
captain of the 20th Maine Regiment of Infantry, 



but after the battle of Antietam he was retired 
from service on account of disabilities received in 
that campaign. 

Having entered upon the practice of law in 
Washington, D. C, and Alexandria, Virginia, in 
1864, he was subsequently appointed to be judge 
of the U. S. Circuit Court for the Eighth Judi- 
cial district of Virginia, with headquarters at 
Alexandria. Retiring from the bench during the 
reconstruction period, he formed a brief law part- 
nership with his classmate, General Ellis Spear, 
for the practice of patent law in Washington, 
General Spear having held the office of Commis- 
sioner of Patents under President Grant's admin- 
istration. 

Called to Chicago in 1881 in counsel in an im- 
portant suit at law, he took up his residence in 
that city where he soon became a leading author- 
ity in patent law practice. He was made presi- 
dent of the Patent Bar Association of Chicago, 
which position he held till his retirement on ac- 
count of illness. 

During his illness of several years, Mr. Hill be- 
came the author of a book which attracted con- 
siderable attention in various quarters. At first 
glance at its title, "Two great questions: The 
Existence of God and the Immortality of the 
Soul," it was thought to be a theological work, 
but instead of a religious treatise it turned out to 
be the cogent argument, scientific and legal, of a 
mind of a strong, judicial grasp in proof of the 
existence of God and a future life at the end of 
this one. The discussion of the Darwinian theory 
and the deduction from modern medical and sur- 
gical discoveries were done in a masterly way 
and made the book of extreme interest to say the 
least. 

Judge Hill was twice married, his first wife be- 
ing Adelaide Cole of Roxbury, Mass., and his 
second, Edith Healy of Chicago, daughter of the 
late George P. A. Healy, the eminent portrait and 
historical painter. He is survived by the latter 
and a daughter by his first wife, Mrs. Lyman 
Rutter, also of Chicago. H. M. J. '58. 

'76. — Charles D. Jameson, who has been en- 
gaged in extensive drainage work in China for 
the American Red Cross Association, is in this 
country at present and has been visiting his for- 
mer home in Bangor. 

'98. — All the members of the Crocker Land Ex- 
pedition, headed by Dr. Donald B. MacMillan, 
were well on Aug. 29, according to a letter 
written on that date by Elmer Ekblaw, geologist 
of the party. The letter was written aboard 
Knud Rasmussen's motor boat in a sea just north 
of Cape Alexander.

WHITNEY MAY COACH FOOTBALL 

The Athletic Council still refuses to give out 
any information regarding next year's football 
coach. Several New England newspapers, how- 
ever, have suggested Whitney of Dartmouth 
as the most probable candidate. 

The Worcester Evening Post has the follow- 
ing: 'Whitney, one of the best athletes ever 
turned out at Worcester Academy, is being con- 
sidered as coach for the Bowdoin football squad 
for next season. The athletic council of the 
Maine college is looking for a man, and it is ru- 
mored on the Bowdoin campus that Whitney will 
be offered the position. He has been named in 
several selections as fullback on the mythical All- 
American eleven. All of his football training has 
been under Frank M. Cavanaugh, the Dartmouth 
coach." 

Another man whose name has been mentioned 
is Bob Storer, captain of the Harvard eleven last 
year. His training has been under Percy D. 
Haughton, Harvard's famous coach. 



FOOTBALL ELECTIONS THIS AFTERNOON 

The election of manager and assistant manager 
of football will be this afternoon in the manager's 
room in the Gymnasium from one to five o'clock. 
The candidates for manager are Garland ' 16 and 
Noble '16 and for assistant manager Blanchard 
'17 and Young '17, Robinson '17, who was 
nominated by the Athletic Council, was declared 
ineligible by the faculty. 



RELAY WORK BEGINS DEC. 15 

Relay work wi-11 begin Dec. 15, practice being 
every afternoon at 4.30. Manager Chase has se- 
cured a race with Williams at the B.A.A. games 
in Boston Feb. 6. Williams has always had a fast 
team, running the full distance of 1560 yards in 
well under three minutes and 15 seconds each 
year. To beat Williams would be a big feather 
in Bowdoin's cap and Coach Magee wishes a 
large squad to report a week from today. 

Coach Magee emphasizes the fact that the re- 
lay team will lose heavily by graduation next 
spring and it is desirable to have a large number 
of second string men from whom to develop a 
team another year. Credit for attendance in 



gymnasium work will be given those who report 
regularly for relay. 

The Freshmen will run the Bates Freshman 
relay team both at the Bates and Bowdoin inter- 
class meets and all Freshmen who intend to try 
out for the class team will be given additional 
training and experience by reporting with the 
'varsity candidates. 



THE ELIJAH KELLOGG MEMORIAL 

Wilmot B. Mitchell '90. 

The students and alumni of the College will be 
glad to know that the memorial to Elijah Kel- 
logg has been received, and is soon to be put in 
place on the west side of Massachusetts Hall. 
The tablet, cast in bronze, is 27 inches by 17, and 
is to be mounted on a slab of slate stone so as to 
make a frame of four inches of slate, green-gray 
it* color, around the bronze. Outside of this is to 
be a framing of brick. 

This memorial was designed by Miss Leila 
Usher of New York, who designed the memorial 
to Professor Francis James Child in the Faculty 
Room at Harvard University, the bronze bas- 
relief portrait of Professor Nathaniel Shaler at 
Harvard, and similar memorials at Johns Hop- 
kins University, Bryn Mawr College, and Roch- 
ester University. She also modeled the bust of 
Booker Washington which was exhibited at the 
Paris Salon of 1912 and at the International Art 
Exhibition at Rome. 

The Kellogg Memorial has been given to the 
College by Bowdoin alumni and other friends of 
Mr. Kellogg; Mr. David W. Snow '73, and Mr. 
Frederick O. Conant '80, being especially inter- 
ested in the gift. 

"It was a sad day for the Children of Israel 
when there arose a king in Egypt that knew not 
Joseph. It will be a sad day for Bowdoin College 
when there arises a generation of students who 
know not Elijah Kellogg." It was thus, I recall, 
that one Sunday afternoon in my Senior year 
President Hyde introduced to the students of 
Bowdoin a little bent, bronzed old man who spoke 
to us with simplicity and eloquence of spiritual 
blindness. "A man with small body but large 
soul," said one of the students as we came out of 
chapel, an impression which Mr. Kellogg made 



172 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



upon us all. 

He held no college office, but for more than 
fifty years no man was more loved by Bowdoin 
men than he. From the day he came to Bruns- 
wick in the autumn of 1836 and presented him- 
self, as he says, "a sedate and diffident youth, be- 
tween the two maple trees which, like friendship 
and misfortune, flung their shadows over the 
steps of Massachusetts Hall, and sued for admis- 
sion to Bowdoin College," even to that winter's 
day in 1901 when the students went down to 
Harpswell to his funeral, Bowdoin boys felt that 
he was their friend, a man after their own heart. 

While a student, he was popular, not because 
he had much money to spend, for he was to a 
great extent dependent upon his own resources. 
A few years before his death he said : "I worked 
my way through college with a narrow axe. Let 
the young man who has to help himself thank 
God, keep his powder dry, and take to his bosom 
the old motto : 'Per angusta ad augusta.' " Pop- 
ularity at Bowdoin, then as now, depended upon 
something more treasured than money. "In Kel- 
logg's social life," writes one of his college mates, 
"he was always boiling over with good humour, 
very fluent in talk, and exceedingly interesting as 
a conversationalist. Indeed, as a whole, he was 
literally sui generis." And another writes: "I 
remember him as companionable, a good story- 
teller, vivacious and even playful. No one would 
have guessed he was the son of a grave minister 
and missionary." 

Although he doubtless enjoyed a college prank 
better than the mysteries of calculus, he was ap- 
pointed to take part in the Junior and Senior 
Exhibition in his Senior year, an appointment 
made on the basis of rank. He enjoyed the clas- 
sics exceedingly and was a good writer. "He 
was strenuous and persistent in whatever he un- 
dertook," writes a college friend. "I remember 
when he was composing a poem or preparing an 
essay, he gave his whole soul to it ; his demeanor 
showed that he was absorbed in it and absent- 
minded to everything else, until that one thing 
was done." 

His close connection with the College did not 
end with his graduation in 1840. For the next 
three years he was at Andover, to be sure, but 
even while there he made a place for himself 
very near to the heart of every school and college 
boy; for it was at Andover that he wrote that 
matchless declamation, "Spartacus to the Gladia- 
tors." What school-boy has not "met upon the 
arena every shape of man or beast and never yet 
lowered his arm?" 

From Andover, to keep a promise made in his 



undergraduate days that if the people of Harps- 
well would build him a new church, he would be 
their minister, he came back to where he saw 
much of the students. And from that time until 
his death, with the exception of the ten winters 
he was at the Mariners' Church in Boston, he was 
almost under the eaves of the College. Here the 
students knew him as a preacher beloved by his 
country parish. They often walked down to his 
church on Sunday afternoons to hear him preach. 
They knew him as he farmed and fished. They 
knew him as a man so generous that he was often 
himself hard pressed. They chatted with him in 
the college rooms and heard him speak at Sunday 
chapel services, at Y.M.C.A. meetings, and Com- 
mencement dinners. They found that he loved 
boys, that he was happy in their companionship, 
that he liked to talk about their work and their 
sports, and tell tales about his own college days. 
They found that he perhaps more than any man 
they had ever known was all the time at heart a 
boy himself. 

For some years the College had the custom of 
sending men whom it "rusticated" down to stay 
with Mr. Kellogg, and doubtless his strong, man-, 
ly character and winning personality brought 
more than one boy to his better self. 

Between 1865 and 1880 came his books. These 
bound him still closer to the College ; for in his 
"Whispering Pine Series" he gives a good look 
into the lives of the students in the early days and 
has caught in the amber of his stories many Bow- 
doin customs. 

In 1894 when his Alma Mater celebrated her 
one hundredth birthday, from sea- and shore her 
children gathered around her knees. She was 
proud to welcome back her sons who had achieved 
success in art and letters, in medicine, theology, 
education, law and statecraft. As one after an- 
other of these successful men arose to speak, he 
was applauded generously ; but when the little 
farmer-preacher stood up to address them, this 
crowd of Bowdoin men broke forth tumultuously. 
Then it was easy to see how large a place Elijah 
Kellogg held in their hearts. In a style almost 
conversational, as a father talking to his sons, he 
told the simple story of his life. Effective it was 
indeed but perhaps not so eloquent as when in 
1890, looking back over a stretch of half a cen- 
tury, he said: "I stand here today like an old 
tree among the younger growth, from whose 
trunk the bark and leaves have fallen and whose 
roots are drying in the soil. Then I could stand 
where the roads divide that lead to Mere Point 
and Maquoit. and hear the roar of the Atlantic in 
one ear and of the falls of the Androscoggin in

the other. Today I have not heard a word, ex- 
cept the two words 'Bowdoin College.' But there 
is no decrepitude of the spirit. Moons may wax 
and wane, flowers may bloom and wither, but the 
associations that link the student to his intellec- 



tual birthplace are eternal. " 

All friends of the College will be grateful for 
<his memorial of a unique, winning and large- 
souled man, a lover of boys, a favorite son of 
Bowdoin.

Honesty in Elections. 

At this time various class and managerical elec- 
tions are being held and the old question of frater- 
nity influence as opposed to sound judgment and 
unselfish voting comes up again. We hear again 
that distasteful word "combine" and feel the 
tendency toward petty politics which in more im- 
portant and significant elections would be called 
crooked. We do not believe that Bowdoin' s elec- 
tions are definitely stained with unfair and biased 
voting and "swapping" of votes between frater- 
nities but we do feel the suggestion of these 
things. 

Action taken at Brown in this matter is inter- 
esting. Cards have been sent to each student 
and he has been required to pledge himself on 
this card not to participate in any fraternity 
"combine." Any man who is convicted of viola- 



tion of this pledge is subject to expulsion and 
those who refuse to sign such a pledge are liable 
to the same punishment. 

Such an action shows tnat other colleges rec- 
ognize the evil of fraternity politics and are ready 
to meet the evil with a drastic remedy. Whether 
the evil is developed to a large degree or not at 
Bowdoin is not known. It is present at least to 
some extent. Can we not face the question and 
settle it with out making severe measures neces- 
sary and make clean elections an established 
thing? 



A Proposed Change 

The substitution of one big football rally for 
the numerous and smaller rallies held in the past 
before each home football game has been sug- 
gested. Such a change would, in the opinion of 
many, remove much of the insincerity and shal- 
lowness which, it is claimed, characterize the old 
system of rallies. It is a fact that football rallies 
have not been all that could be desired and the 
serious consideration of this proposal may well 
be recommended to the rally committee of the 
Student Council. 

With four or five small rallies, all practically 
the same, interest flags, and the essential purpose 
— to arouse enthusiasm — fails. The entertain- 
ment offered has been meagre. Four or five 
speakers, who generally speak extemporaneous- 
ly, a few selections from the band, apples, dough- 
nuts and cider, — these form the assortment which 
are intended to arouse our enthusiasm to the 
highest pitch. Many students, with time to attend 
rallies, have chosen the moving picture show or 
some other form of diversion. 

In place of these rallies we suggest as a possi- 
bility one big gathering, similar to the annual 
spring rally. Let the rally committee provide en- 
tertainment that is more out of the usual order. 
Speakers could be secured who would have some- 
thing to say and who would not be obliged to 
plead "unprepared." The Masque and Gown and 
Musical Clubs, as well as the band, could be 
called upon. Surely there is enough talent in 
college to furnish a better program than has been 
offered at any time during the past two or three 
years. 

Only two objections can be found to the pro- 
posed plan. The first is that the old system of 
rallies affords Freshmen an opportunity to learn 
the cheers. Our cheers are not long or compli- 
cated and could easily be learned at a single ral- 
ly. And they could be learned and practiced far 
better at a single rally with a large attendance 
than at a number of small rallies poorly attended. 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



!75 



The second objection is financial. Speakers from 
away, a higher grade of refreshments and other 
features would cost money. It must be remem- 
bered, however, that the four rallies have ex- 
penses and the total of the four would nearly 
equal the cost of the one. If necessary let ad- 
mission be charged. Three or four hundred 
students at twenty-five cents each would net an 
appreciable sum. 

We also suggest an annual smoker late in Jan- 
uary of a type better than those of the past. With 
athletic contests few and far between such a 
smoker offers a valuable opportunity to interest 
preparatory school men in Bowdoin. A sub- 
Freshman coming from a distance of more than 
ten miles must naturally be disappointed with his 
trip, and consequently with Bowdoin ; in other 
words, a poor smoker is worse than no smoker. 
Perhaps the winter smoker could be omitted and 
an effort made to raise to a higher level the meet- 
ing held after the indoor interscholastic meet. 

We believe that a majority of students will 
favor these proposed changes and that action to 
this end would be popular. 



PROFESSOR CLEAVELAND'S DIPLOMA 

An interesting evidence of the prominence in 
the scientific world of the late Professor Parker 
Cleaveland of Bowdoin has recently come into 
the possession of the college through the gift of 
Dr. William L. Thompson of the class of 1899 in 
the framed diploma of membership granted the 
Maine professor in 1823 by the Imperial Minera- 
logical Society of St. Petersburg. The diploma, 
in itself an interesting specimen of engraving, 
will be placed in the Cleaveland Cabinet in the 
second story of Massachusetts Hall. 



HON. CARL E. MILLIKEN SPEAKS 

Last Thursday evening the Debating Room in 
Hubbard Hall was well filled to listen to Hon. 
Carl E. Milliken's address "The College Man and 
the State." The talk was very interesting and 
Mr. Milliken gave some practical advice to col- 
lege men from a college man's experience in af- 
fairs of state and as an authority on civics and 
clean politics. 

Following the meeting Mr. Milliken attended a 
conference of Government and American history 
students at Professor Hormell's and discussed 
from a practical standpoint matters that have 
been studied in government.

GLEE CLUB CHOSEN 

The personnel of the Glee Club for this year 
has been announced as follows : 



CATALOGUE PUBLISHED 

The 1914-1915 catalogue number of the Bow- 
doin College Bulletin made its appearance last 
week. It gives the total registration this year as 
466, the largest in the history of the college. In 
the academical department are 397 students, in 
the medical school 69, a total of 466, but three 
names are counted twice so that the net total reg- 
istration of the institution is 463. 

The registration is as follows :

cal department. 

There is a net total of 87 instructors, as fol- 
lows :

year, 189 men rooming in the "ends." There are 
133 men rooming in the various fraternity and 
club houses. In the private houses off the cam- 
pus there are 75 men rooming, and of these five 
come from some town outside of Brunswick each 
day. 

Including the $188,000 of the Medical School, 
the interest-bearing funds of the College on 
March 31, 1914, were $2,312,552.42, an increase 
in the fiscal year of practically $100,000. During 
the fiscal year ending March 31, 1914, the expen- 
ditures for the maintenance of the College 
amounted to $146,708.02. 

Several scholarships have been added to the 
list since the last catalogue. They include the 
Class of 1903 Scholarship, Hugh J. Chisholm 
Scholarship, Ephraim Cummings Scholarship, 
Edward A. Drummond Scholarships, John F. 
Hartley Scholarship. The first was given in 
1913, the other four in 1914. They bring to the 
College $30,500 worth of scholarships. 

The tuition is raised from $50 to $100, but the 
incidental college charges are reduced to $6.50 
from $12.00. The estimated expenses for stu- 
dents are increased correspondingly. The lowest 
is $312.50, the liberal $425.50, the average $358.50. 

A new department to be started the second 
semester is that of Biblical Literature by Profes- 
sor McConaughy. The first course under this 
department is one of Biblical History, a study of 
the important characters and events in Jewish 
history, including a study of the life of Christ. 
The course is open to Sophomores, Juniors and 
Seniors with the consent of the instructor. 

In the line of admission of students new elec- 
tives are allowed. Applications for credit will be 
received for 2 units of work in Botany, Civics, 
Commercial subjects, Manual Training, Mechan- 
ical Drawing, Music and Physical Geography. 
Individual attention as to the work done in these 
courses will be given and credit from one-half to 
two units will be allowed. 

New courses include one in Lyrical Poetry, 
given by Professor Elliott ; one in European His- 
tory since 1815, by Professor Bell; and one in 
Biblical History by Professor McConaughy. 



CONCERNING COLLEGE ARISTOCRACY 

At Chapel Sunday, Dec. 6, President Hyde 
explained his so-called "Aristocratic" plan . of 
college education. It takes nothing from the 
rank and file of the student body; but merely 
adds a few courses limited to those, (and not too 
many of them) who give promise of power to do 
original work; and would profit by freer methods 
and more intimate association in work with the 



professors than the college could afford to give to 
everybody. We already have made a good be- 
ginning in English 7 limited to six students, and 
political science limited to ten in other advanced 
courses like those in Physics and German which 
are protected by the hedges of required prere- 
quisites and reputed difficulty. 

It is simply an application to education of the 
athletic policy that gives more costly training to 
the nines and elevens than to the rest of the col- 
lege. It follows Jesus' precept "To him that 
hath shall be given," and illustrates the principle 
that in intellectul as in spiritual things though 
many are called but few are chosen: that in both 
spheres the way of highest excellence is narrow, 
and few be they that find it. 



THETA DELTA CHI DANCE 

Eta Charge of Theta Delta Chi held a very en- 
joyable Thanksgiving dance at the chapter house 
Tuesday evening, Nov. 24. 

The patronesses were Mrs. Wilmot B. Mitchell 
and Mrs. William F. Porter, both of Brunswick. 
The committee in charge was Elwell '15, chair- 
man, Burr '16, Phillips '17 and Manderson '18. 

Among the guests present were the Misses 
Gertrude Tuttle, Marion Hieber, Marion Fer- 
nald, Margaret Albion, Beatrice Palmer, Virginia 
Ford, Gertrude Albion, Laura Goding, Georgi- 
anna Shaylor and Helen Small, all of Portland; 
Marguerite Hutchins, Helen Blackwell and Mar- 
ion Strout of Brunswick ; Elizabeth Purinton of 
Topsham, Marie Fogg of Westbrook and Corinne 
Salley of Skowhegan. 

Lovell's orchestra of Brunswick played for an 
order of 20 dances. 



PICTURES OF CLASS OF 1866 
By the kindness of Mrs. E. B. Chamberlin of 
Brunswick, the college library has recently re- 
ceived two framed photographs representing the 
class of 1866 at the time of graduation. Tall hats 
are a predominate feature in open air groups of 
that period. 



ALUMNI SEND SONS TO BOWDOIN 

According to a census compiled especially for 
the Orient there are in college at the present 
time 34 men who are direct descendants of 
Bowdoin graduates. Three of these, Baxter '16, 
Achorn '17 and Crosby '17 are both sons and 
grandsons of Bowdoin men. Two members of 
the class of 1841 have sent their grandsons back 
to the college while four members of 1881 and 
1888, three of 1877 and 1885 and two of 1884 and 
1889 have sent back sons. Only one graduate has

two sons in college. It is interesting- to notice 
that every graduate who has a son in the class of 
191 5 is a doctor. The percentage of the men in 
college who are descendants of alumni follows : 

College 9.1 

1915 6.3

ENGLISH 5 DEBATES 

On Tuesday evening, Nov. 24, the class in Eng- 
lish 5 held another of the series of preliminary 
debates. The subject was: — Resolved, That a 
new fraternity should be established at Bowdoin. 
Edwards '16 and Drapeau '16 supported the af- 
firmative, and Livingstone '15 and Hight '16 
argued for the negative. The decision of the 
judges was for the affirmative. 

At the regular session of the class on Tuesday 
evening, Dec. 1, there was a debate on the propo- 
sition: Resolved, That fraternity stewards 
should organize for cooperative buying. Cutler 
'15 and Melloon '15 supported the affirmative, 
while Dunn '16 and Jones '15 argued the negative. 
The decision was in favor of the latter. 



INTERFRATERNITY CONFERENCE 

Over 100 delegates from 34 college fraternities 
attended the sixth annual Interfraternity Con- 
ference in New York on Nov. 28. 

That fraternities were exercising an increas- 
ingly wholesome influence on college life was the 
concensus of opinion of the representatives from 
75 institutions. In reply to queries 45 colleges 
answered that the fraternity influence for good 
had grown vastly in the last two years. Twenty- 
four reported that there had been no change, and 
six that fraternities had long been beneficial. No 
college reported that their influence was baneful. 

Reports prepared by the national executive 
bodies of the fraternities indicated that the condi- 
tion of living in the chapter houses was steadily 
bettering. Gambling or drinking in the fratern- 
ity houses is almost universally forbidden, the re- 
ports showed. 

STATUE OF PRESIDENT PIERCE '24 

A statue of Franklin Pierce '24, fourteenth 
President of the United States, was unveiled re- 
cently at the State House in Concord, N. H. The 
statue shows President Pierce in civilian dress, 
except for the military cloak which indicates his 
service in the Mexican War, is executed in 
bronze, and is mounted on a stone pedestal. Au- 
gustus Lukeman of New York City was the sculp- 
tor. For many years efforts to erect such a me- 
morial to President Pierce have been frustrated 
by citizens who felt that his sympathy with sla- 
very had been too active in the days immediately 
preceding the Civil War. Last year, however, 
owing to the untiring efforts of Senator William 
E. Chandler, a $15,000 appropriation by the legis- 
lature, and the plan was successfully completed.

last Wednesday a large quantity of old clothes 
and magazines to be sent to the Belgian refugees 
who are quartered on the campus of Cambridge 
University.

Thanksgiving dinners for the poor in Brunswick 
cheered the hearts, homes and larders of about 
50 people. Baskets containing roasts of pork, po- 
tatoes and other vegetables, crackers, nuts, fruit, 
candy and other fixings, were made up and sent 
around to needy but appreciative families. It 
was a good investment of time and money.

FOOTBALL ELECTIONS 

By the elections last Tuesday afternoon, Gar- 
land '16 was chosen football manager for the sea- 
son of 1915. The first ballot for assistant mana- 
ger resulted in a tie, Blanchard '17 being elected 
on the second ballot Thursday. 

RELAY SQUAD PICKED 

Relay work begins today at 4.30 and will be 
held regularly every day at that hour. Gymnasium 
credit will be given to the men making the squad. 
The following have been picked : 'Varsity squad, 
McWilliams '15, Smith '15, A. B. Stetson '15, 
Fuller '16, Hall '16, Ireland '16, McElwee '16, 
Pettingill '16, Sayward '16, Webber '16, Balfe 
'17, Bond '17, Campbell '17, Crosby '17, Nute '17,

Savage '18," Stebbins '18, Wallace '18, C. E. Wy- 
man '18, L. C. Wyman '18. 

It is not yet certain what college will be Bow- 
doin's opponent at the B.A.A. meet. Although 
the Orient was assured by the track management 
that a race had been secured with Williams, it has 
been cancelled by a ruling of the Williams faculty 
against competing with colleges over two hundred 
miles from Williamstown. A four-cornered race 
of the Maine colleges has also been suggested but 
is opposed by both Bates and Bowdoin, and nego- 
tiations are now being made with Brown.

graves, Medic. '18 and Leadbetter '16. As yet no 
new men have reported for practice, but all those 
who are interested in fencing will be welcome. 
The winter's schedule has not yet been definitely 
drawn up. 



1915 CALENDAR 
The Bowdoin calendar for 1915 has just ap- 
peared, and is a very excellent and creditable 
piece of work. It was published under the man- 
agement of Roberts '15 and Foster '16. The 
cover, which is of black limp leather, has as an 
insert the picture of the Class of '75 Gates and 
is embossed with the Bowdoin seal. The calen- 
dar itself contains a picture of President Hyde, 
views of the campus, fraternity houses, athletic 
teams and other college organizations. The cal- 
endar is one of the finest of those printed in re- 
cent years and is being well received.

THE OCTOBER QUILL 

We all have a good deal of crass, uncompre- 
hending joy in many things in which the man of 
letters delights. Just our common pleasures in 
nature's aspects, in human relationships and in 
the operations of our instincts are his stock in 
trade. But we, pressing blindly on through the 
existent joy, seek at its close others to match it 
while he stands aside to view and catch it in a 
mesh of words, reflects lovingly on it when past 
or on the imaginative constructions that he has 
never realized. We enjoy living it out; he enjoys 
its contemplation. 

As most of us know, what a man singles out 
for such admiring scrutiny and holds up to the 
admiration of others is apt to determine the is- 
sues of life. So, to one who follows the Quill 
from year to year, the interesting question is 
what seems beautiful to each new generation of 
writers, worth fixing in prose or verse. Here is 
what the contributors to the October number have 
offered us, arranged in the order followed in that 
issue : 

The melancholy beauty of the dying year and 
the irrecoverable past. 

The tragic beauty of flickering human pres- 
ences in phantom struggle across the background 
of eternity that men call fate. 

The ecstatic beauty of the roving wanderer's 
felt union with the forces astir in the mighty sea. 

The whimsical beauty of the contrast between 
the intimate, friendly cooperation of the writer 
with his writing-tool and the topsy-turvy when 
tool masters its master. 

The pathetic beauty of transient joy in its con- 
trast with man's eager hope for its permanence. 

The tragic beauty of the conflict between the 



joy we would grasp for the day and the deeper, 
age-long joy men call duty. 

The pathetic beauty of the contrast between a 
serene and tranquil perfection such as Nature al- 
ready shows and the fierce struggles of misap- 
prehending men toward that goal. 

The tragic beauty of war in which defeat 
awaits both victor and vanquished. 

The ecstatic beauty of chasing the quarry in 
the bright and frosty air of autumn. 

The supreme beauty of the Art of Living in its 
contrast with the overweening pretensions of 
knowledge. 

Here is a wide range of the beautiful offered 
to us. In all the ten pieces there is perhaps no 
new insight. What men for ages have found fair 
these too acclaim but with whatever force and 
freshness belong to their first-hand view. In 
some cases the writers have attained transparent 
expression. In others they struggle with their 
medium and come off worsted from the encoun- 
ter. 

This is apparently the case with "A Plea for 
the Pencil." Something difficult, slow-moving, 
that will not ask for a thought till the word to 
clothe it be at hand — a quill-pen, by all means, 
rather than a pencil — seems demanded to point 
an opposition to the inexorable rush of type- 
writer and fountain-pen. The sequent ideas show 
a tendency to dart off at random, instead of being 
born each out of the preceding. In Knowledge 
and Wisdom this same writer has found his me- 
dium a little more plastic to his idea. He has 
here caught a glimpse of beauty so high that only 
failure to dwell long on his discovery could have 
kept him from finding a more elevated expres- 
sion. But he has seen it. 

The editor-in-chief has shown us a consider- 
able range of esthetic insight. He is melancholy 
in Indian Summer, tragic in The Book of Huyles 
and For the Other Laddie, ecstatic in Hunter's 
Song. In each he maintains unhaltingly the mood 
which the situation evokes. The meters of the 
verses admirably correspond, but he is betrayed 
into an occasional contradiction of minor ideas, a 
token that his feelings had outraced his ideas. 

The metrical arrangement of The Saxon's Song 
reveals with rather unusual subtlety the ecstasy 
of the experience described. The ceaseless beat 
of the even-lined iambics accumulates force 
through four lines by very repetition, to break at 
the verse-climax of ecstasy, into a rush of dactyls, 
which are in turn, by a new arrangement of the 
meter, brought back into a strong and steady 
close. The reviewer confesses to an uncommon 
pleasure in this "song," its mood, the balance of 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



its contrasting ideas and its expressive meter. 

The sonnet On the Eve of an Anglo-German 
Naval Battle seems to fall but little short of being 
a very good one ; and, for the reviewer, that lit- 
tle is chiefly lacking in the thought of the sestet. 
Its author seems to have glimpsed the beauty in 
the contrast between a serene perfection such as 
Nature sometimes shows and the fierce struggles 
to which men condemn men in their strife for 
ideals. But the writer's medium has been too re- 
sistant and the idea but partly emerges. As to 
August Thirty-first, by the same author, we may 
admit that the printer, or sonje one else, balked 
him sadly in one of the lines— -"On Time's unre- 
sisting wing" — and yet incline to the view that 
the real beauty which the poet saw was given 
somewhat commonplace expression. 

The Red Sun is vivid and terse in expressing 
the inner contradiction of war, where victory is 
itself a defeat. Had the writer been less sparing 
of the breathless trimeters of his second stanza, 
the mood of tragic horror would have been bet- 
ter sustained. The tetrameters seem too glib and 
the pentameters too deliberate to accord with the 
theme, as the author conceives it. Nor does there 
seem to be a gain in beauty from the irregulari- 
ties that he introduces into his complex metrical 
scheme — and what a fearfully unpoetic word 
"moderation" ! 

Each of the ten pieces in this first fall issue of 
the Quill has a fine idea at its heart. To that ex- 
tent each writer has had sure insight, whatever 
the literary expression. When a critic's estimates 
are adverse, there can be no lack of defensive re- 
tort. To share a vision of the beautiful is the ex- 
cellent, difficult task, not to write the review.

MUSICAL CLUB NOTES 

The Sophomore class of Mount Holyoke has 
invited the Musical Clubs to give a concert at 
South Hadley while the clubs are on their Massa- 
chusetts trip. The annual trip through Maine 
will probably come the week of Jan. II. A con- 
cert will be given at Bath on Jan. 8 or 9. 

Fuller '16 has been elected reader of the clubs. 



ADDRESS ON INTERNATIONAL PEACE 
Dr. Tames Libbey Tryon of Boston spoke at the

International Peace, has been member of several 
Hague Conferences, attended the Peace Confer- 
ence of 1907 at Munich and was American dele- 
gate to the International Peace Conference at 



Constance, Germany, during the past year. He 
was in Europe at the time the great war broke 
out and told some very thrilling experiences of 
his departure and trip through Germany, in addi- 
tion to very interesting and instructive points on 
International Peace relations and arbitration. 



ENGLISH 5 DEBATE 
The first of the series of regular debates in 
English 5 was held in Hubbard Hall last Tuesday 
evening. The subject was : Resolved, That laws 
should be enacted in the various states establish- 
ing the so-called indeterminate sentence. Kin- 
sey '16, Ladd '16 and Wright '15 supported the 
affirmative and Brewster '16, Rodick '15 and Rog- 
ers '15 argued the negative. The decision of the 
judges was in favor ot the affirmative. 



H. M. S. PINAFORE 
Students will be interested in the production of 
the musical comedy H. M. S. Pinafore at the 
Town Hall Friday night, as the play is produced

Hockey and a Rink 

As the winter months come, with the football 
season a thing of the past, baseball and tennis 
seasons in the distant future, and the Indoor In- 
terclass Meet forming one small oasis in a desert 
of physical inactivity, one looks about for some 
sport which will afford a more enjoyable outlet 
for surplus energy than the routine of gym work. 

The rare combination during the last few 
weeks of ground free from snow and weather 
cold enough to form ice has caused most of us to 
look with envy at Canadian colleges but little to 
the north of us with their well built, convenient 
skating rinks, which make possible healthful, out- 
door exercise for almost every man, and exciting 
competition between hockey teams representing 
classes, fraternities, dormitories, or between 
teams chosen at the moment when ten or a dozen 



fellows feel like playing. And now we see that 
a nearer neighbor, Bates, is to have a skating 
rink, the student body having subscribed money 
enough to build it. 

It is doubtful if Bowdoin could support a 
hockey team which could take part in intercolle- 
giate contests, but the lack of interclass competi- 
tion at this time of year, and the possibilities of 
hockey to provide such competition make us feel 
that Bowdoin should follow the lead of other col- 
leges and provide a skating rink. Nor do we 
think that a rink adequate for our needs is impos- 
sible to get. There may be objection to flooding 
any part of Whittier Field because of possible 
damage to the running track or the baseball dia- 
mond. The Delta, however, furnishes an excel- 
lent place for a rink which could easily be flooded 
and which would be most conveniently situated. 
A low embankment could be built around the area 
which was needed for the rink and a shallow 
pond formed at an expense of about $100. We 
believe that practically every man in College ■ 
would contribute twenty-five cents, the price of 
admission for one afternoon to a city roller-skat- 
ing rink. It is possible that there are objections 
to the introduction of hockey, or to using the 
Delta for a rink. It seems to be the opinion of 
the student body that such objections are counter- 
balanced by the benefit and enjoyment to be de- 
rived from hockey, and the approval of the ath- 
letic authorities is the only thing needed for its 
introduction as the leading winter sport. 



BOWDOIN MAYORS OF PORTLAND 
The recent election of William M. Ingraham 
'95 as mayor of Portland recalls the fact that ten 
other Bowdoin men have served in a similar ca- 
pacity. They are: 1833. John Anderson '13. 
Dem.; 1856, James T. McCobb '29, Dem.; 1857, 
William Willis '67 (honorary), Rep.; i860, Jo- 
seph Howard '21, Dem. ; 1869, William L. Put- 
nam '55, Dem.; 1876, Francis Fessenden '58, 
Rep.; 1877-8, Moses M. Butler '45, Rep.; 1882, 
Charles F. Libby '64, Rep.; 1886-8, Charles J. 
Chapman '68, Rep.; 191 1, Charles A. Strout '85,

have also held this executive position : Levi Cut- 
ter in 1 84 1 on the Whig ticket, and James P. 
Baxter, who has been mayor six times on the 
Republican ticket.

A collection will be taken for Christmas din- 
ners at Chapel on Dec. 20. 

A box containing clothes for the Belgians, 
weighing over 300 pounds, was shipped last week

in Cambridge during Christmas week. 



Cluu ano Council sheetings 

At a meeting of the Student Council to be held 
this week a circular letter to the alumni will be 
presented for the approval of the Council. The 
letter is in charge of a committee consisting of 
McWilliams '15, Elwell '15 and MacCormick '15, 
and concerns the interesting of preparatory 
school men in Bowdoin. An attempt will prob- 
ably be made to defray incidental expenses by 
holding a minstrel show later in the year. 

At a meeting of the Orient Board last Tues- 
day Noyes '17 was elected an associate editor. 
The matter of printing the Orient in newspaper 
form was discussed but no action was taken. 

The Gibbons Club met at the Kappa Sigma 
Chapter house Sunday afternoon at 4.15 p. m.

Salary revision upwards is the order of the day 
at the University of Michigan, where the regents 
have just authorized an increase in pay for every 
member of the faculty. The revised scale affects 
two hundred teachers and increases the year's 
budget by approximately $40,000. 

A year ago last September ten students who 
were unable to fulfill the college's entrance re- 
quirements were admitted to Brown University 
as an experiment, the desire of the authorities 
being to learn whether or not the ability of a man 
to pass entrance requirements was a true test of 
his ability as a student. The ten men remained 
in college throughout the year and Dean Otis E. 
Randall, after a careful watch of their records, 
reports that with one exception they proved to be 
unusually good students and worthy of the op- 
portunity which was opened to them. 

To stimulate interest in cultural activities in 
the broadest sense of the word, a new club, the 
"Arts" is to be organized at Dartmouth. "Arts" 
is to be specifically a non-athletic organization, 
and pre-eminence in such activities as debating, 
dramatics, student publications, etc., will be the 
main requirements for membership. Faculty and 
undergraduates to a number not to exceed fifty 



will be eligible for membership. Incidentally, 
this club will make it one of its primary aims to 
have the college get the full benefit of the excep- 
tional facilities provided in Robinson Hall, the 
new building dedicated to the non-athletic inter- 
ests, and the gift of a Boston man. 

The Wesleyan Radio Club has been receiving 
messages from long distances during the past 
few weeks on the recently installed apparatus on 
Scott Laboratory. An application for a sending 
license will be filed within a short time. 

The discontinuance of football as a 'varsity 
sport at St. Anselm's College was announced Dec. 
2 by the athletic authorities. The action had been 
under consideration for some time and was defi- 
nitely determined upon after the serious injury 
of two St. Anselm's players in the recent game 
with Boston College. 

Dartmouth's winter carnival, to take place this 
year in February, will be more elaborate than 
ever. To the customary list of events has been 
added an intercollegiate skii and snow-shoe con- 
test, the first to be held in this country. 

The two lower classes at Tufts College had 
their annual clash last Wednesday and instead of 
a flag rush, a "bag rush" was tried. The contest 
was staged on the new football field. All of the 
Freshmen were lined up behind one goal line and 
all of the Sophomores behind the other. In the 
center of the field, the upper classmen laid five 
large canvas bags stuffed with sand and hay. At 
the signal the two classes dashed madly for the 
bags and endeavored to drag as many as possible 
over their own goal lines. 

The University of California announces a six- 
year course leading to the degree of "Graduate 
in Public Health." 

With the opening of Cornell University this 
fall, work has commenced on the first unit of an 
elaborate system of residential halls, which, when 
completed, will provide accommodations for the 
entire undergraduate body. The new dormitories, 
which cover an area of ground amounting to 
about two ordinary city blocks, will be of old Eng- 
lish collegiate style, constructed of rough grey 
stone, and built around large courts. The be- 
ginning of the work on the first of these buildings 
was made possible by an additional gift of $50,- 
000 made last summer by the same anonymous 
benefactor who gave $100,000 for the same pur- 
pose last spring. 

George R. Parkin, trustee of the Rhodes schol- 
arship, has notified several people in the north- 
west that a change in the election of Rhodes 
scholars in the United States has been made. By 
spreading the election of scholars over a period 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



of three years the men may be more satisfactorily 
accommodated in the colleges of their preference 
at Oxford. This change will disappoint some few 
students in certain states who expected to com- 
pete for the 1916 scholarships. Another change 
is the removal of the restriction that, on making 
application for scholarship, the competitors must 
choose between their home state, and the state in 
which they received the most of their education, 
and then not be allowed to compete in any other 
state not chosen. The new ruling permits con- 
testants if they wish to compete in alternate 
years ; first in the state where they were educated 
and then in their home state. 

Students at Pennsylvania are allowed to be- 
come members of the boxing squad and by doing 
this receive credit for their regular physical 
training course. 

Two professors of the University of Pennsyl- 
vania are serving in European armies. One is at 
the front with the French troops, while another is 
with the English forces as an interpreter. 

Fresh Freshmen at Dickinson College are tried 
before a "Senate" of upperclassmen for their of- 
fenses. If they are found guilty, the whole col- 
lege unites in meting out punishment to the of- 
fenders. 

Columbia University has a man who has been 
a student at the institution for twenty-seven 
years. The conditions of the case are as fol- 
lows: William Cullen Bryant Kemp, LL.B., 
LL.M., A.B., A.M., has an annual income of 
$5,000 from a trust fund, which is to be given 
him as long as he remains a student at Columbia. 
When he leaves off his studies, he forfeits his in- 
come. His home is at the University and al- 
though he has four degrees already, he is still a 
candidate for other honors. 

Some of the faculty of the University of Lou- 
vain, Belgium, as well as a number of students of 
that institution are expected to take refuge at the 
University of Notre Dame until conditions in Bel- 
gium permit the resumption of university classes 
there. The students thus transferred will be 
cared for without charge for board, lodging, or 
tuition. 

The glee clubs of Princeton and Wellesley will 
give a joint concert Nov. 28 at the Waldorf- 
Astoria in New York. This is the first time the 
Wellesley glee club has left Wellesley to give a 
concert. 

There will be no Senior promenade at Welles- 
ley this year, the class having voted to devote the 
money usually spent for this function to the Eu- 
ropean war relief fund.

One of the latest additions to the library is a 
book of recent publication, The Pan-Angles, a 
consideration of the federation of the seven Eng- 
lish-speaking nations. "Pan-Angles" is the term 
used to designate the self-governing white peo- 
ple of New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, 
Newfoundland, Canada, the British Isles and the 
United States. The book sets forth characteris- 
tics that make the "Pan- Angles" one people: one 
in history, language, law and form of govern- 
ment — one in civilization. It shows how the 
"Pan-Angle" civilization is threatened by rival 
civilization — the German, Japanese, Russian and 
Chinese, and maintains that in order to survive, 
the "Pan-Angle" nations must come together into 
a common government. 

The Boston Globe for Nov. 26 contains an in- 
teresting editorial discussion of a two years' col- 
lege course. The argument in favor of such a 
course is that two years of college, and an earlier 
start in business would prove more beneficial to 
the average than the present full four years.

December 4, 1914. 
The Kappa learns with regret of the death of 
Brother Francis Warren Davis of the class of 
1912. Brother Davis was known personally to 
many of the present undergraduate members of 
the chapter and although he did not stay to grad- 
uate, he has always been a loyal friend and 
brother. He was a patient sufferer in his illness 
and will always be remembered for his cheerful 
disposition. 

Therefore, be it resolved that the Kappa ex- 
tend its sympathy to his bereaved friends and 
relatives and that this resolution be placed in our 
archives.

'26. — A recent addition to the walls of the 
Alumni Room in Hubbard Hall is the portrait of 
Rev. Joseph Sherman, LL.D., '26, president of 
Jackson College in Tennessee. Jackson College, 
established in 1833 in Maury County, was a 
flourishing institution under the auspices of the 
Presbyterian Church, but it ceased to exist soon 
after the outbreak of the Civil War when its 
chief building was destroyed in military opera- 
tions. President Sherman's connection with the 
college extended from 1834 until his death in 
1849, an d his portrait is the gift of his three 
nephews, Judge Frederick Dodge, William W. 
Dodge and Edward Sherman Dodge, the sons of 
Hon. John C. Dodge '34 of Boston. 

'71. — Dr. William Palmer Melcher died at his

kill Melcher. He fitted for college at Lewiston, 
Me. While in college he was a member of Delta 
Kappa Epsilon fraternity, of Phi Chi, the Sopho- 
more society ; of Omicron, the Junior society ; of 
Kappa Kappa, the Senior society; of Athensean, 
a literary society, and won a second prize for 
English composition. After graduation he as- 
sisted in re-establishing Pike Seminary, Pike, 
N. Y., and during the year 1872-3 was instructor 
of German at the University of Minnesota. In 
1873 he entered the Medical School of the Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania, receiving his M.D. de- 
gree in 1876, and has been in the active practice 
of medicine ever since, at Camden, N. J., from 
1876 to 1879, Pemberton, N. J., 1879 to 1882, and 
Mt. Holly, N. J., 1882 till the time of his death. 
He was a leading citizen of Mt. Holly where he 
was highly respected and a leader in his profes- 
sion. He is survived by a widow, two daughters. 
Misses Dora and Charlotte of Mt. Holly, a son, 
Stanwood A. of the class of 1915, his father, Wil-

been called the best all-round athlete that ever 
represented Bowdoin.

TENTATIVE FOOTBALL SCHEDULE 

Manager Garland has announced the following 
tentative schedule for football next fall: — 

Sept. 25 — Open. 

Oct. 2 — Amherst at Amherst. 

Oct. 9 — Open. 

Oct. 16 — Wesleyan at Middletown. 

Oct. 23 — Colby at Waterville. 

Oct. 30 — Bates at Lewiston. 

Nov. 6 — Maine at Brunswick. 

Nov. 13.— Tufts at Portland. 

Although definite arrangements have not been 
made for any of the above games, it is probable 
that they will be played as scheduled. Negotia- 
tions are also in progress for a game with New 
Hampshire State on Sept. 25 and Trinity on 
Oct. 9. 



WINTER FOOTBALL PRACTICE REVIVED 

Winter football practice will begin soon after 
Christmas under the direction of Captain Lead- 
better. Last year winter football practice was 
dropped from the schedule but it is planned to 
make a more thorough and scientific practice dur- 
ing the winter months. During the days of 
"Cope" Philoon football men worked out during 
the winter in the old gymnasium and the old 
baseball cage in the attic of Memorial Hall and 
the result was a great improvement in the ensuing 
teams. With the added advantage of the athletic 
building the Athletic Council has deemed it wise 
to revive the system. 

The squad will probably be picked by Captain 
Leadbetter and credit for attendance in physical 
training; will be given. 



RELAY TEAM IN THREE MEETS 
The Bowdoin relay team will compete in three 
meets this year, according to the present plans of 
the track management. The Athletic Council at 
a meeting Thursday night voted to approve of 
two-cornered but not four-cornered races with 
the other Maine colleges at the B.A.A. Feb. 6. 
Under this plan Bowdoin will run another Maine 
college, probably Bates, while Maine will race 
Colby, and the two winners will meet later in the 
evening for the state championship. 

The other two meets are at Hartford Feb. 19 
and at the Armory Athletic Association at Provi- 



dence the next day. At these meets Bowdoin 
will run against teams from Brown, Holy Cross, 
Trinity, Tufts or Wesleyan. 



CLASS HOCKEY PRACTICALLY ASSURED 

Interclass hockey may be in order after the 
Christmas vacation. A Committee consisting of 
Dr. Whittier, Dr. Copeland and MacCormick '15 
was appointed at the last meeting of the Athletic 
Council to lay the matter before the faculty and 
the grounds and buildings committee. The space 
between South Appleton and Hubbard Hall has 
been selected as a probable location for the rink, 
a natural depression aiding in the construction. 
It is understood that there is no opposition to 
interclass hockey by the faculty and that the 
grounds and buildings committee is not opposed 
to a rink.

SOPHOMORES WIN DEBATE 

The annual debate between the two lower 
classes took place last Wednesday evening in the 
Debating Room, Hubbard Hall. The subject for 
debate was : "Resolved, That county elections in 
the various states should conform to the princi- 
ples of the short ballot." The Freshmen sup- 
ported the affirmative side, the Sophomores the 
negative. The Freshman team was composed of 
Matthews, Sanderson and Jacob, with Haskell 
alternate, and Talbot '15 coach. The Sophomore 
team included Moran, Crosby and Blanchard, 
with Crehore alternate and Kuhn '15 coach. 
Kinsey '16 presided. 

The affirmative aimed to show how present day 
county government lacked efficiency and centrali- 
zation, due chiefly to the long ballot. Their plan 
was to cut down the ballot and elect only a com- 
mission of supervisors, much like the city com- 
mission, which should take complete charge of 
county government. 

The negative admitted the evils of the present 
elections and the poor government resulting. But 
they offered a remedy in a plan which abolished 
the county as an electoral unit. Under this plan 
the state would assume half the offices and the 
local government the other half. 

The decision of the judges, Dr. Little,. Profes- 
sor Nixon and Professor McClean, was for the 
negative by a two to one vote. 



ENGLISH 5 DEBATE 

The subject of the debate in English 5 last 
week was "Resolved, That the solution of indus- 
trial difficulties be sought through profit-shaving." 
The affirmative was defended by Hescock '16, 
Hight '16 and Jones '15. On the negative were 
Demmons '15, Dunn '16 and Melloon '15. The 
decision was in favor of the negative.

Winter Football Practice 

At the meeting of the Athletic Council held last 
week it was voted to recommend the holding of 
football practice through the winter months. The 
recommendation is not made to any of the college 
athletic authorities, but to the men in college who 
are interested in football from the standpoint of 
players. The recommendation serves to focus the 
attention of the student body on the call for can- 
didates for winter practice which the captain will 
shortly make. It was believed inadvisable to make 
such a call earlier, in view of the nearness of the 
last season. 

Many things which contributed to our football 
defeats this fall point directly at the Athletic 
Building as an effective remedy. Many of the 
men on the team were green and suffered from a 
lack of knowledge of the fundamentals of the 
game. No accurate thrower of forward passes 



or sure drop-kicker was developed, and the men 
were not able to handle the ball with the finish 
and speed which more seasoned teams display. 

The remedy is obvious. At our disposal we 
have facilities which none of our Maine rivals 
and few of our New England rivals possess. We 
have in our Athletic Building a space about half 
as large as a football gridiron, with a surface of 
well-packed earth, and a roof high enough to 
permit everything but punting. Goal posts have 
been erected in one corner and practice in drop- 
kicking up to a distance of forty yards may be 
had. Practice in forward-passing, in running 
through plays, in falling on the ball, in tackling 
the dummy, in fact in almost every branch of 
football may be carried on under favorable con- 
ditions through the months when most teams are 
gaining fat and losing speed. Some of our worst 
faults could be corrected and the coach, coming 
in the fall, would find the men new at the game 
well versed in the fundamental principles and the 
veterans more sure in the fine points of the game. 

When a call for candidates comes, a squad of 
men should report immediately and begin the re- 
covery of Bowdoin's prestige in football. It will 
only be when we cease to wait for a champion- 
ship, and go out to get it, utilizing all the facili- 
ties at our disposal, that we will deserve victory. 
Some years ago Bowdoin faced a similar situation 
in football and the men practiced during the win- 
ter in cramped, inadequate quarters. Their work 
showed results and Bowdoin again won victories. 
With conditions closely resembling those out of 
doors, we may well expect immediate results from 
steady, faithful work. 

Arrangements will undoubtedly be made so that 
the men who practice will receive credit in their 
gymnasium work, and the squad will necessarily 
be limited by the authorities. Perhaps many will 
apply to get into a new and interesting form of 
gymnasium work. Such an idea will spoil the 
purpose of the winter practice, for only hard and 
consistent work on the part of veterans and re- 
cruits will benefit next year's team and help its 
chances of success. 

We have at our hand the means to strengthen 
our football teams. What excuse have we to of- 
fer, if we fail and have not tried? 



INTERSCHOLASTIC DEBATING 

The preliminaries in the Bowdoin Interscholas- 
tic Debating League will be held on March 6. 
The teams will be divided into two sub-leagues. 
League I consisting of Edward Little, Lewiston, 
Cony and Portland and League II of Brunswick, 
Biddeford, Westbrook and Lisbon Falls. 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



J 93 



The question which League I will debate is : 
"Resolved, That the Jones Bill providing for the 
government and the disposition of the Philippine 
Islands should be enacted." The question for 
League II is : "Resolved, That the women of the 
United States should be given the suffrage on 
equal terms with men." The teams will debate as 
follows in the preliminaries : Edward Little vs. 
Lewiston at Lewiston, Cony vs. Portland at 
Augusta, Brunswick vs. Biddeford at Brunswick 
and Westbrook vs. Lisbon Falls at Lisbon Falls. 
The finals in each league will he held in Bruns- 
wick in April. 

The committee has provided a Bowdoin under- 
graduate as coach for each team, as follows : 
Lisbon Falls, Brewster '16; Portland, Dunn '16; 
Westbrook, Edwards '16; Cony, Hescock '16; 
Lewiston, Keegan '15; Edward Little, Rogers 
'15; Biddeford, Tackaberry '15. 

The committee in charge consists of Keegan 
'15 chairman, Kuhn '15 and Rogers '15. 



QUILL AGAIN PRAISED 

The Bowdoin Quill continues to receive the 
commendation of the editors of other college 
magazines. The Amherst Monthly, The Nassau 
Monthly, The Vassar Miscellany, and The Wil- 
liams Literary Monthly speak of it as being con- 
servative, small but discriminating, and of a high 
quality that puts it in a class by itself. 



STANDING ROOM ONLY 

The Masque and Gown presented "The Mar- 
riage of Kitty" at Gorham last Thursday evening. 
Narragansett Hall, where the play was presented, 
was filled to capacity.

POEM BY DEAN SILLS 

The following poem by Dean Sills appeared 
the Boston Herald for Sunday, Dec. 13, 1914: 

THE MOTHER'S PERIL 

Out of the summer's stillness, 
Quick on an Empire's peace, 
Swift as the thought of evil 
That makes all vision cease, 
Came war and death and hatred, 
And the English nations cried: 
"Our mother is in peril : 
O sons ! Stand by her side !" 

Resolute, calm and able, 
The son at home arose, 
He left his sport and workshop, 
He measured full his foes; 
Man-like the cost he counted — 
His grandsires, too, had died — 
His mother is in peril : 
Her firstborn's by her side. 

The son who in the North Land 
Had built his wealthy home, 
In the first flush of manhood 
And eager still to roam, 
Across the wide seas harkened — 
The seas with blood seemed dyed — 
The mother is in peril ; 
He hastens to her side. 

In a far southern island, 
Blest deep with peace and trade, 
But bound still to the Home-land 
By ties vast distance made; 
Another left his ploughshare 
With Southern Cross to guide — 
His mother is in peril — 
He sails to join her side. 

And one who in a country 
He toiled and fought to win 
And made his conquered foemen 
Look on him as their kin, 
Leaving new gold and jewels 
For happier days to bide, 
Sees but the mother's peril, 
And hurries to her side. 

And one who in rich Asia 
Had wooed an alien race, 
By frankness and by kindness 
Gaining a steadfast place, 
Came with his dusky servants, 
Taught well to shoot and ride, 
To share his mother's peril 
And stand firm by her side. 



And one there was whose duty 
Lay still in his own land ; 
Through fate the ties were broken 
He by himself must stand : 
He sees his brethren hasten, 
And though he must abide, 
He dreads the mother's peril; 
Would he were at her side ! 

And thus the world-worn mother, 
Still young with deeds to do, 
Sees her sons crowding round her 
And feels their presence through; 
She smiles 'mid tears and anguish, 
Her voice is firm with pride — 
"What though the peril's mortal ! 
My sons are at my side !" 

— Kenneth C. M. Sills. 



C&e Otfter Colleges 

An innovation in football rules has been sug- 
gested by E. B. Cochems, football coach of the 
University of Maine. He would abolish the rule 
about advancing ten yards in four downs, and in- 
stead give each team five chances to advance the 
ball, regardless of the distance covered. By thus 
dividing the game into innings like baseball, he 
claims that an advantage would be given to the 
weaker team. He would also not have the ball 
return to the kick-off at the beginning of the sec- 
ond half, but rather have it remain where it was 
at the end of the first half, saying that under the 
present rules there are really two games instead 
of one. 

That cooperation sometimes means or results 
in competition is apparent from the statements 
made in the new Harvard catalogue on the ques- 
tion of the Harvard-Tech "merger." By the 
agreement, which permits easy transfer of stu- 
dents from University to Institute, it would seem 
that Harvard, as far as general engineering edu- 
cation is concerned, automatically becomes a 
competitor of Technology. It is difficult to fore- 
tell what coming generations will do but it ap- 
pears not at all unlikely that it will be a common 
course for students to use the more extensive 
University plant for their two-year elementary 
training and the Institute for the other two-year 
specific engineering training. It looks, too, as if 
Harvard were planning to revive the B.S. degree, 
an award that has not been given at the univer- 
sity since the old days of the Lawrence Scientific 
School.

Hampshire was made recently by President Fair- 
child of the state college at the exercises held in 
connection with the dedication of the new $80,000 
science building. By the creation of a two-year 
course in engineering the college now makes its 
appeal for the handicapped youth who desires to 
improve his material conditions but who has lit- 
tle time to devote to the process. The men whom 
New Hampshire thus seeks to help are those who 
enter the mills and factories with but "little capi- 
tal save the muscles their Creator has given 
them." "Though the college can hope to help but 
few, the call," says Dr. Fairchild, "is none the 
less imperative." The new course will be formal- 
ly inaugurated next September and its progress 
will be watched with interest. 

The decision of the Dartmouth authorities to 
allow students of the college to use the summer 
school no longer as a means of making up delin- 
quencies should have a wholesome effect. 

The State Agricultural College of Kansas has 
offered to aid war victims with a carload of 
wheat, grown and milled on the University farm. 

Aubert Hall, a new home for the department 
of Physics and Chemistry, has recently been 
opened at the University of Maine. 

It cost Harvard $25,000 to produce her cham- 
pionship football team this year. The largest 
item, $7,500, represents the salary of Percy D. 
Haughton, the head coach. 

In regard to undergraduate activities at Har- 
vard University, a report of the Athletic Associa- 
tion is published which shows the relative earning 
power of the various sports. Following is a part 
of the 1912-1913 statement: 

SPORT RECEIPTS EXPENSES PROFIT 

Football $114,864.82 $30,151.53 $84,713.29 

Baseball 20,107.37 13,711.57 6,395.80 

Hockey 2,731.88 2,419.43 3 I2 -45

Track 2,715.68 9,79770 7,082.02 

Crew 4,584.61 16,131.67 11,547.06 

Football, according to this showing, the latest 
available, is the best money-making proposition 
and the crew the greatest loser. 

Syracuse University and Ithaca, the city in 
which it is situated, are making a strong bid for 
the Olympic meet in 1916. A committee to urge 
the selection of New York City has already been 
appointed. It is claimed that the Syracuse stad- 
ium has a capacity of 40,000 people, besides a 
220-yards straight-away and an excellent quar- 
ter-mile cinder track. 

Officials of the University of Pennsylvania, 
while classifying a collection of ancient Egyptian 
objects, discovered some dice loaded so that the 



number six should always come face upwards. 
This clearly indicates that the ancient Egyptian 
knew something besides astrology and mathe- 
matics. 

An editorial in a recent publication of The 
Dartmouth advocates the opening of college li- 
braries all day on Sunday. It claims that with 
recitations on Monday, lasting through the whole 
day, a Sunday free from study is impossible. 

Action has been taken by the Athletic Council 
at Wesleyan forbidding the wearing of athletic 
material, which belongs to the University, out- 
side of the season of each particular sport. For 
instance students are not allowed to wear track 
uniforms to gymnasium, or football jerseys 
around the campus when those sports are out of 
season. The object of this action is to cut un- 
necessary athletic expenses to a minimum. 

Actions by two college bodies indicative of 
good spirit have received notice in the newspa- 
pers recently. The students of Stevens Institute 
demanded the removal of their own coach, be- 
cause the latter in the game with N. Y. U. had 
sent back into the game, disguised by plasters 
over his face and a different sweater, a guard 
who had been ruled out by the referee in an 
earlier period. The Fordham undergraduates 
voted the score of their game with Vermont 7 to 
6 in favor of the New England eleven, despite the 
fact that the referee had declared that Captain 
Wymard of Fordham kicked the goal after a 
touchdown by his team. A misunderstanding 
concerning the jurisdiction of the officials was 
responsible for the controversy, but the majority 
of the New York spectators saw that the ball did 
not go between the posts. 

At Topeka, Kansas, a convention is to be held 
from Dec. 29 to Jan. 1 which will be the first 
great gathering of college men ever called to- 
gether in the United States on an important civic- 
social issue. More than 1000 college men from 
all over the country will gather there to discuss 
the liquor problem from the scientific, sociologi- 
cal, economic and governmental standpoints. The 
convention is being promoted under the auspices 
of the Intercollegiate Prohibition Association. 
Under this same subject it is interesting to note 
that nearly fifty colleges and universities today 
-are offering courses to their students in various 
phases of the alcohol problem. California, Cor- 
nell and Harvard are all included in the list of 
those who have taken this step. 

According to the Hotchkiss Record only twelve 
deaths have occurred during the season of 1914 
as a direct result of football. All of those who 
died were under twenty years of age. The causes 



196 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



of the fatalities were various. Tackling was re- 
sponsible for four; heart-failure and blood poison- 
ing for two more ; blows on the head killed two ; 
three were killed in scrimmages and one died af- 
ter a head-on collision. 

The undergraduates of Williams, at a recent 
meeting, reaffirmed their confidence in the honor 
system which has been successfully followed 
since 1896. A proposal was advanced which re- 
quired compulsory rather than voluntary report- 
ing of violations but the idea was rejected on the 
ground that the voluntary method was of a higher 
type and entirely feasible. 

A dancing class, for the purpose of teaching 
the modern dances in their standard forms has 
been organized by the students of Reed College, 
in Portland, Oregon. The students who desire 
instruction meet once a week and are taught, by 
competent performers, the newest steps in the 
terpsichorean art. 

The University of Illinois has sent over five 
thousand articles of clothing to refugees in the 
European war.

•45. — Charles Phelps Roberts, last survivor of 
the class, died at his home in Boston, Dec. 16, at 
the age of 92. Not only is the next oldest grad- 
uate dead but also a break is made between the 
classes of 1840 and 1847. Mr - Roberts was born 
Feb. 14, 1822, at Bangor, the son of Francis and 
Ruth Roberts. He prepared for college at Ban- 
gor High School and entered Bowdoin in 1841. 
After graduating from college, he practiced law 
at Kenduskeag, Maine, and in 1849 entered news- 
paper life, and was editor of the Bangor Evening 
Times during the Civil War. He was married on 
Oct. 28, 1861, to Miss Margaret A. Rich of Win- 
terport. Following the Civil War he became su- 
perintendent of schools of Bangor and held this 
position until 1874. In 1879 he removed to Bos- 
ton where he took an active interest in journalism 
as long as his mental capacities served him. He 
always possessed marked literary ability and fre- 
quent contributions to newspapers and to the 



BOWDOIN ORIENT

Orient showed his keen interest in his Alma 
Mater. He is survived by his wife, a son, Charles 
Bailey Roberts of Boston, and a daughter, Mrs. 
Josephine S. Wilde of Newtonville, Mass. 

'62. — Rev. Henry Otis Thayer of the Maine 
Historical Society has recently had reprinted in 
pamphlet form sundry interesting and very valu- 
able historical papers on the War of 1812, with 
especial reference to Maine. These papers he 
has periodically contributed to the Bath Indepen- 
dent. 

'76. — Charles D. Jameson, civil engineer in 
China, is in this country while efforts are being 
made by the Chinese government to secure a loan 
of $5,000,000 to finance the Huai River project. 
This stupendous undertaking is to keep the suffer- 
ers from the late flood in that district from star- 
vation by affording reclamation work along this 
river. If the loan can be financed, Mr. Jameson 
will probably return to China at once. 

'77. — David Dunlap Gilman died at his home 
in Brunswick Thursday afternoon, Dec. 17, hav- 
ing been an invalid for eight years. He was born 
at Brunswick July 26, 1854, the son of Hon. 
Charles J. and Alice Dunlap Gilman, and pre- 
pared for college at Brunswick High School and 
Exeter Academy. For several years after leav- 
ing college his health was such as entirely to for- 
bid close application to any mental work, and so 
far as possible his time was given to outdoor 
work and the general superintending of the farm 
in Brunswick. The effects of a sunstroke, suf- 
fered in 1875, lingered with him for nearly eight 
years, but the recovery, although slow was radi- 
cal and thorough. In the fall of 1883, he accept- 
ed a position as paymaster of the Cabot Manufac- 
turing Company, a position which he held contin- 
uously until 1906. Feeble health necessitated re- 
tirement from active life, and since 1906 he has 
lived an invalid at his home. He is survived by 
two sisters, Miss- Elizabeth Gilman and Miss 
Mary G. Gilman and a brother, Charles A. Gil- 
man, all of Brunswick. The funeral was held 
Sunday afternoon from the late home. 

'81. — Congressman Daniel J. McGillicuddy is 
to speak on the subject, "Workmen's Compensa- 
tion for Federal Employees" at the eighth annual 
meeting of the American Association for Labor 
Legislation at Philadelphia, Dec. 28-29. 

'95. — The following communication has been 
received by the alumni editor: "It was my good 
fortune to become intimately acquainted with 
Alonzo William Morelen while we were class- 
mates at Bowdoin. It is true that he was quiet 
and retiring while in College, but this did not in- 
dicate lack of conviction. I have known him to 



become very earnest in maintaining some point 
which he felt to be right. It is difficult to express 
a memory of a classmate without seeming to be 
commonplace or flattering, and Morelen detested 
flattery. As I remember college days there was a 
glint of fun in his eye, notwithstanding his seri- 
ousness, and, although we do not think of More- 
len as we do of Fairbanks, we always felt certain 
that when there was need of quiet, steady, persist- 
ent effort, with a true idea of the proportion of 
things, and a calm judgment mixed with a saving 
sense of fun, Morelen could be counted on. I be- 
lieve he chose the right profession. He must 
have been a good physician for it would take a 
serious crisis indeed to throw Morelen off his 
poise. If he had had the physique he would have 
made a good quarterback, and in every crisis of 
the game he would have been reliable. As one of 
his classmates so well said about him : 'He was a 
very quiet, retiring fellow in college, and few 
knew him well, but he was a man whose charac- 
ter and ability stood the test of long acquaint- 
ance, and his carefulness, honesty and high sense 
of duty won the esteem and affection of the dis- 
trict in which he practised.' 

"Another Bowdoin man has done his duty with 
the true Bowdoin spirit, and gone to his great 
reward.

"Auburn, Maine, Dec. 10, 1914-" 

Ex-'oy. — Announcement has been received of 
the engagement of Dr. Henry L. Johnson, for- 
merly of Brunswick, and Miss Mary Buffum of 
Westerly, R. I. 

'10. — The marriage of Warren Eastman Rob- 
inson and Miss Anne Louise Johnson, daughter 
of Professor and Mrs. Henry Johnson, will take 
place at Professor Johnson's home on Dec. 26. 

'13. — Cedric R. Crowell has been playing in 
"The Vanguard," a new war play by Mrs. Trask, 
under the management of the Cooperative Pro- 
ducing Company and the Shuberts, at Rochester 
and Detroit during the past two weeks. The 
company disbanded in Detroit on Dec. 19 and 
will probably appear in New York later. Crow- 
ell has the part of a lieutenant and has the prom- 
ise of a part in the New York cast. 

'13. — Paul H. Douglas has an article in the cur- 
rent number of the Intercollegiate Socialist, en- 
titled Anti-Socialistic Somnambulism. 

*i 1. —Harold V. Bickmore has begun the prac- 
tice of medicine in Portland. He received the 
degree of M.D. from the Bowdoin Medical School 
last June, and for a year, ending last August, 
was interne at the Maine Eye and Ear Infirmary. 
His present address is 88 Morning Street.

The '68 Prize Speaking contest will be Thurs- 
day evening in Memorial Hall. The following 
Seniors will speak: George \V. Bacon, Robert 
P. Coffin, Austin H. MacCormick and Francis 
P. McKenney. George A. McWilliams and 
Kenneth E. Ramsay have been excused. 



HOCKEY RINK BEING BUILT 
With the completion of the new rink and a 
continuance of cold weather hockey is assured. 
The new rink, which is 136 feet by 58 feet, has 
been completely flooded and will be boarded up 
when the ice has reached a sufficient thickness 
for skating. Class or inter-fraternity hockey will 
not be in charge of the Athletic Council, but if 
enough interest is shown by the classes and fra- 
ternities hockey between these organizations can 
be arranged. 



RELAY SQUAD TO BE CUT THIS WEEK 

Relay practice began in earnest last week. On 
Tuesday afternoon Trainer Magee assembled all 
the relay men for a talk on the different points of 
running and training. Practice has consisted of 
long jogs on the campus for endurance, soccer 
football, short setting-up drills and form work on 
the board track. 

Saturday afternoon Trainer Magee divided the 
squad into two teams for soccer and relay. In 
the former Pettingill's team defeated Chapman's, 
8-2. In a four-lap relay race Chapman's team 
was able to turn the tables and defeat Pettingill's 
team. 

The members of the squad have reported daily 
without a single absence. Trainer Magee has ex- 
pressed himself as being highly satisfied with the 
work of the entire squad. 

The following men now constitute the squad : 
McWilliams '15, A. Stetson '15, Hall '16, Ireland 
'16, McElwee '16, Sayward '16, Pettingill '16, 
Webber '16, Balfe '17, Bond '17, Chapman '17, 
Crosby '17, Nute '17, Pierce '17, Clark '18, A. 
Gray '18, Hildreth '18, Stebbins '18, C. Wyman ' 
'18, L. Wyman '18. 

The first cut will be made the last of the week.

This is the beginning of what promises to be 
quite an extended schedule, according to Mana- 
ger Card oi the Musical Clubs. During the lat- 
ter part of this week a trip will be taken to va- 
rious towns up-state. Toward the last of March 
the customary trip will be taken in Massachusetts 
and southern New England. The final list of en- 
gagements has not yet been made for the latter 
part of the season, however, so the schedule 
which follows is only partial. The present en- 
gagements : — Friday, Jan. 8, at Bath; Thursday, 
Jan. 14, at Skowhegan; Friday, Jan. 15, at Ban- 
gor; Saturday, Jan. 16, at Augusta; Friday, Feb. 
12, at Portland. 



FENCING PRACTICE 
The 'varsity fencing team has been busily en- 
gaged in practice every day for the past week in 
preparation for its first two matches. On Fri- 
day, Jan. 15, it meets the Yale team at New Ha- 
ven, and on the following day the Harvard Var- 
sity at Cambridge. The men who will represent 
us at both contests are Captain-Manager Floyd 
'15, Porritt '15, Leadbetter '16 and Hargraves, 
Medic '18. 



SOPHOMORE HOP COMMITTEE 
In accordance with the recommendations of 
the Student Council last year, the usual Junior 
Assembly is to be replaced by a Sophomore Hop 
about Feb. 19. At a class meeting Friday the 
following committee was chosen to have charge 
of the affair : Ross, chairman ; Creeden, Hum- 
phrey, Marston, Swift. 



WINTER FOOTBALL BEGINS AFTER FINALS 
Winter football practice will begin immediate- 
ly after mid-years. . About 30 men, among them 
the members of the 'varsity football team, will 
take this form of gymnasium work. There will 
be two divisions, which will meet at hours that 
do not conflict with other gymnasium classes. 
Credit for regular physical training will be given. 



THE ANAND S. HIWALE FUND 
The special committee of the Y.M.C.A. to so- 
licit money for Anand S. Hiwale has raised $270. 
Hiwale is a Bowdoin man of the class of 1909 
and also a graduate of the Bangor Theological 
Seminary. He is a native of India and after com- 
pleting his education in this country, returned to 
India as a missionary, supported by a few of the 



New England colleges. Towards his income, 
Bowdoin annually contributes about three hun- 
dred dollars, and no doubt this fund will be raised 
to this amount this year. The money will be sent 
to Mr. Hiwale within the next two weeks. 



LECTURE AND DRAMATIC READINGS 

On Friday evening, Jan. 15, at 8 p. m., in Me- 
morial Hall, through the cooperation of the Sat- 
urday Club and the College, students will be ad- 
mitted free to the talk on "The Drama as a So- 
cial Force," with illustrative readings, by Bea- 
trice Forbes-Robertson, a niece of the unique 
Shakespearean actor, Sir Johnston Forbes-Rob- 
ertson, and herself an actress at seventeen with 
Sir Henry Irving, later with Forbes-Robertson, 
Wyndham, Sir Herbert Tree, Ellen Terry, and 
under Frohman at the New Theatre until her 
marriage to Mr. Swinburne Hale, a New York 
lawyer, in 1910, and her departure from the stage. 
Her stage experience and literary instinct as well 
as an especially attractive personality and charm 
have made her talks on the Drama, the Poetry of 
the Day, and the Women's Movement in its larg- 
est and sanest aspect most successful throughout 
the country; and with the present almost exag- 
gerated interest in the dramatic medium as an 
expression of the life and problems today, such 
distinctive knowledge as Mrs. Hale's should in- 
terest a college audience. Mrs. Hale will be in- 
troduced by President Hyde and members of 
Masque and Gown will act as ushers. 



ENGLISH 5 DEBATES 



On Monday evening, Dec. 21, the debate in 
English 5 was on the question, Resolved, That 
the proposed Hobson amendment establishing na- 
tional prohibition should be adopted. Kuhn '15, 
Cutler '15 and Livingstone '15 argued the affirm- 
ative, while Edwards '16, Drapeau '16 and Talbot 
'15 presented the negative. The decision was for 
the negative. 

On Tuesday evening, Jan. 5, the proposition 
for debate was, Resolved, That women in the 
United States should have the right of suffrage 
on equal terms with men. Dunn '16, Keegan '15 
and Ladd '16 supported the affirmative and Good- 
skey '17, Brewster '16 and Hescock '16 argued 
the negative. The judges decided in favor of the 
negative. 

The three remaining debates will be held in 
Memorial Hall on Tuesday evenings of the next 
three weeks, and are open to students and the 
public in general.

A Communication 

We have received a valuable communication 
from a committee of the Boston Alumni, known 
as the Committee of Twelve, which has consid- 
ered the athle.tic situation and made recommen- 
dations with regard to it. The recommendations 
are for the most part with reference to the Ath- 
letic Council and copies have been mailed to the 
members, as well as to the Orient. The Athletic 
Council has not yet been able to consider these 
recommendations and it seems inadvisable to pub- 
lish them until the Council has had an opportun- 
ity to do this. If the recommendations are to be 
discussed, as it is hoped they will be, this dis- 
crimination will be more profitable when the rec- 
ommendations have been officially taken up. We 
feel sure that the alumni from whom the com- 
munication comes will appreciate the advisability 



of postponing its publication until a later issue of 
the Orient. 

With regard to communications, we feel that 
the Orient should state its policy. In the last 
few months the Orient has received many com- 
munications, some of which it has seemed inad- 
visable to print. Some of the communications 
have been of a critical nature, though the criti- 
cism has been more often constructive than de- 
structive. It is to be regretted that suggestions 
of a reconstructive nature are often seized by 
our rivals as food for discussion on the necessity 
for reconstruction. The articles are read, too, 
by a large body of alumni who do not completely 
understand affairs, and by many people in no way 
connected with the College, who form hasty and 
false opinions which hurt the College. We have 
tried to weigh each communication in the light of 
the general good of the College, not in the nar- 
row light of its news value. We have asked, 
"Will the printing of this criticism accomplish a 
useful purpose ?" rather than "Will it interest our 
readers ?" 

We welcome communications of the worth of 
the one which we are reserving for later publi- 
cation, and we beg our readers to use the Orient 
freely as a medium of expression. We ask only 
that they appreciate the necessity of our judging 
communications as we have indicated. 



An Alumni Issue 

In accordance with a plan which the Orient 
has long cherished, but which financial stringency 
hampers, some efforts will be made in a modest 
way to fill the gap which in many colleges is filled 
by an Alumni Quarterly. In the next issue of the 
Orient we shall try to include more news than 
usual of interest to the alumni, although we may 
hardly presume to call it an Alumni Number of 
the Orient. It is hoped that the Orient with 
this small beginning will be able to produce at 
some future date issues devoted entirely to the 
alumni and their interests. 



A COMMUNICATION 
Schofield Barracks, H. T., Dec. 21, 1914. 
To the Editor, Bowdoin Orient. 

St R: _ -The Orient of Nov. 24 has just reached 
me. As a former member of the Athletic Coun- 
cil and as a "has been" player and coach I have 
read the communication "More money for the 
coaches! Better games for the team!" with a 
great deal of interest. 

The communication is right when it states that 
football has come to be a game of skill. Further- 
more, a football team, if properly coached, must 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



be composed of eleven men who have been thor- 
oughly trained in their individual duties and later 
have been carefully moulded into a machine. 
The individual duties or position play, of each 
man as center, tackle, etc., is fundamental. With- 
out it team work is of no avail and victories can- 
not be won against rivals. 

Not having seen a Bowdoin team play since 
1909 I have no knowledge of the faults in the 
team or its coaching in 1914. I do know that the 
principle fault in the last team I saw was the ig- 
norance of the individual player of his position 
play. I am of the opinion that the same fault 
still exists in Bowdoin teams. 

Now as to coaches. With few exceptions good 
coaches cost money and money is always scarce 
in the coffers of the Athletic Council. Now and 
then a good coach has been obtained at a reason- 
able salary by taking a man who has been suc- 
cessful as a player but who has had no experience 
as a coach. This method is simply a lottery. The 
surest way is to pay "more money for the 
coaches." In general I am not in favor of alumni 
support for college athletics. At this time I see 
no other solution. Let the alumni get together 
and guarantee the salary of a good coach not for 
one year only but for three years. Have a con- 
tract for that length of time and give the coach 
a chance to build for the future as well as for the 
present. 

A successful coach develops good teams. Win- 
ning teams depend also on our material to work 
with, as well as the coaches and material of our 
rivals. 

Now as to "Better games for the team !" When 
I first saw the Bowdoin schedule for 1914 I had 
misgivings. There were too many so-called "bet- 
ter games" on the schedule. No team can play 
its very best game more than one day in the sea- 
son. By careful handling a team can be kept at 
nearly top form for about two weeks. When the 
top has once been reached the decline is rapid. 
It is necessary then at the beginning of the sea- 
son to point a team for one game. The others 
should be taken more as a matter of course. We 
certainly cannot expect to play our best game 
against Amherst. Wesleyan, Trinity, Bates, Col- 
by, Maine and Tufts, all in the same season. 
Talk as we may, Bowdoin is first a Maine college 
and our natural rivals are the Maine colleges 
first of all. When we have shown our superior- 
ity over them there will be opportunity to take on 
new rivals. At the same time we should play 
regularly with about two out of the state colleges 
of our own class. We cannot win from the out 
state teams if we cannot do so from the Maine 



teams. 

Successful football teams draw large crowds 
and large receipts ; poor teams draw the oppo- 
sites, whether playing state or out state teams. 
Therein lies the ultimate means of making a first 
class coach pay for his own large salary. 

Now, to have uniformly successful teams we 
need first class material, also. With our higher 
standards of admission and scholarship this is 
difficult to secure. The men who come up to our 
standards of scholarship and also to the desired 
physical standard are comparatively few and are 
worth working for. 

Very few Bowdoin men make a determined ef- 
fort to get these men. Knowing the superiority 
of their college, their pride has been above going 
to individual prep school men with this idea in 
mind. Every man is said to have his price. 
Every prep school man can be appealed to from 
some point of view. Every one realizes this 
when it comes to pledging a man to a fraternity. 
Why not pick out the men we want for college, 
get acquainted with them, study them, find out 
how best to reach them on the college question. 
The key may be the boy's chum, his father or 
even just a friend of the family. Watch for the 
critical moment. Then carry the campaign 
through to a victory. 

In passing I will venture the opinion that an 
agreement between the fraternities to refrain 
from rushing freshmen and sub-freshmen until 
the end of the first freshman semester would 
have a beneficial effect along the lines mentioned 
herein. 

In conclusion then, we must : 

( 1 ) Get a first class coach on a three year con- 
tract. 

(2) Drop our holier than thou attitude toward 
prep school men and other colleges and work on 
the other three hundred and sixty-three days of 
the year. 

Very truly, 

Wallace C. Philoon. 



THE QUILL FOR NOVEMBER 

The November Quill in its table of contents 
displays along with four familiar names, desig- 
nations, cryptic and otherwise, of three new writ- 
ers. Upon securing so generous an addition to 
the list of contributors, the Editorial Board is to 
be (or was to have been) congratulated. The 
congratulations may be of the heartiest, more- 
over, since the offerings of the newcomers are 
so full of promise. A regular subscriber like 
myself may perhaps be pardoned for discussing 
the November issue under this familiar classifi-

BOWDOIN ORIENT 



cation of the authors represented — known and 
new. 

In Rheims and The Book of Huyles, Mr. Cof- 
fin employs his graceful art upon the matter of 
greatest current significance. One aspect of the 
European war, the sad and pessimistic one, he 
figures in the weeping statue of the Virgin in the 
ruined cathedral. Another aspect, still sad as 
Purgatory, but optimistic, he portrays in the 
magic prophecy of the sage of Huyles that one 
day "men will be no longer patriots of a narrow 
fatherland, but patriots of all humanity." The 
elaborateness of the mediaeval medium in this 
prose sketch is counterbalanced by the aweful 
simplicity of the clear-limned picture in the 
stanza. 

Odysseus — thus have I seen it, even in the Book 
of Huyles — voices the more commonplace mood 
of longing to be 

"a pagan, suckled in a creed outworn." 
Is it by chance only that Mr. Coffin, notwith- 
standing his evident fondness for the ancient tale, 
in expressing this mood seems less at his ease? 
I refer, orthography of course aside, to such 
things as the pervading obscurity of the refrain, 
and the intimation that the Cyclops' drove was 
"fabulous" to Odysseus. 

To Mr. Achorn's Star Gleams I have given 
much thought; my conclusion is that it depicts 
•one of those rare moments when the soul be- 
comes conscious of a mystic comradeship. In his 
versification I find no obstacle; but with respect 
to his thought I find by analysis some justifica- 
tion for my perplexity : The first three lines rep- 
resent a time reasonably near sunset; the next 
line indicates a time not earlier than midnight; 
two lines more, and I am back at a time which 
may be called evening. Again, that which an- 
nounced itself as combined effulgence and har- 
mony, I can with dfficulty think of as speech 
consisting of accents which are ineffaceable be- 
cause writ in tears. Does the poet's prerogative 
fairly extend to this? 

Mr. Merrill's The Pledge of Youth is likewise 
neat and trim as a series of verses, likewise in 
■general a timely expression of concern for the 
war. Its refrain, perhaps, is diminuendo, sooth- 
ing, when as involved in a pledge it should be 
fortissimo, thrilling. All that would serve, how- 
ever, if it were in any sense obvious what is the 
"leaden pall" which the Youth of America "must 
lift." 

In Smoke Rings another familiar voice speaks. 
The highly individualistic attitude which it re- 
flects is refreshing; it is without a tincture of 
altruism. There are, to be sure, indications that, 



in composing this, A.C.A. yielded to the lure of 
the typewriter in lieu of his obedient pencil. For 
example, his fortune is made and he becomes 
fair game for dealers in cigars if he can indeed 
justify his uncancelled statement about the mind 
being at times "dormant and receptive." 

Briefly now the newcomers. The Story of 
Pierre Le Blanc is an autobiography of adven- 
ture, not a short story, for interest is centered 
upon no one character or occurrence. It exhibits 
a fertility and vividness of imagination which 
may well be promptly employed upon more uni- 
fied, more definitely focussed representations. 

Then and Now is a well-phrased expression of 
an idea long since old but forever compelling. It 
is suggestive enough, not obtrusive in its paral- 
lelism ; it aims at a simple effect, and in simple 
fashion produces it. 

The author of Music Notes does well what he 
set out to do. So far as words unaccompanied by 
music can convey the effect of music unaccom- 
panied by words, he has been successful. His 
technique (my opinion not extending, of course, 
to the musical features) is confident, even mas- 
terful. When I say that lacking the binding ele- 
ments of key and modulations and haunting motif 
it seems virtually a pot-pourri, I am perhaps only 
emphasizing the impossibility of applying to ver- 
bal composition the canons acceptable in music. 

The surpassing merit of this contribution seems 
to me to be its breadth. It reflects a passion for 
the musical ; it reflects still more definitely a mind 
which observes and contemplates rejoicingly 
whatever concerns mankind. There is no more 
valuable quality in a contributor than this. 

W. H. Davis. 



THE DECEMBER QUILL 

Even a hasty perusal of the December Quill 
reveals its two chief characteristics. The first 
characteristic is the Christmas spirit expressed in 
three of the selections, — a '•'carol," an essay, and 
the only narrative. The second is the lack of 
material dealing with what is familiarly known 
as "college life." As a college publication the 
Quill should devote at least some of its energy to 
portraying undergraduate life, either of Bowdoin 
or of an imaginary institution, and the reviewer 
joins with reviewers of the past in regretting the 
absence of this feature. 

This issue is the last under the direction of Mr. 
Coffin, who retires from the position of chairman. 
For Mr. Coffin's conscientious work as a whole 
we have only praise, and we think he has suc- 
ceeded better than the average chairman in 
wringing contributions from students not mem- 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



204 



bers of the board. 

In the three Christmas selections no particular- 
ly new phase of Christmas spirit is emphasized, 
but perhaps it is impossible to bring out a new 
side of a subject nineteen hundred years old'. 
The Pagan, under a different title and with 
slightly different setting, might be found in al- 
most any Christmas magazine but after picturing 
the farmer boy's delight in Christmas and his hon- 
est gratitude for the plump turkey, together with 
Edward Dunham's change of heart, we are alto- 
gether pleased that this story was included in the 
issue. 

The Discard is worthy of commendation. All 
of us have treasures not worth the space they oc- 
cupy and sympathize with the saver of old let- 
ters, old clothes and broken crockery, which, he 
tries to persuade himself, he will put to some use 
in the near future. Some sentences of this might 
be accused of exaggeration ; for instance, "I 
ground my teeth and stamped viciously, as 
though I were grinding the foe to death under 
my conquering feet," and, "assuming a Napole- 
onic posture, strode moodily up and down." If 
such sentences represent an attempt at humor, 
they fall far short of their mark. We may be 
charitable enough to hope that the word "octo- 
pos" was misspelled by the compositor and not by 
the author. 

In the remainder of the Quill the reviewer can 
find little which he likes to believe is character- 
istic of the paper as a whole. In a Dining Car 
reminds one to some extent of a former chair- 
man, Mr. Robinson, but his finished development 
is entirely lacking. / Loved Thee, Atthis, Long 
Ago and The Dance of the Elves could never 
hope to be popular with the majority of college 
students, and even a staid and sober reviewer 
may be pardoned if he does not dwell longer 
upon them. A. F.

€&e flDt&er Colleges 

Two hundred and eighty-seven members of the 
present Freshman class at Dartmouth prepared 
for college in the public schools, according to 
statistics based on blanks filled out by 1918 men 
at matriculation and given out by the registrar. 
Of the remaining men, 115 prepared at private 
schools and 24 combined the two methods of pre- 
paratory education. Of the entire class, 59.1 per 
cent, entered without condition, about the same 
percentage as in the class of 1917. 

Cornell is reported to have started an earnest 
movement to shorten the 'varsity course at the 
Poughkeepsie Regatta. The course, which has 
been four miles "in length, will be shortened to 
three if the authorities who are now considering 
the matter come to an agreement. 

Eighteen thousand eight hundred and fifty-two 
dollars was netted by the last Army-Navy game 
for the charity fund which is annually augment- 
ed by this event. 

That rowing is one of the most expensive 
sports and at the same time one which brings in 
small proportional receipts is evidenced by the 
report of the graduate director of the Columbia 
University rowing association. He states that 
over $2,700 is still owed by that university to- 
ward the payment of expenses incurred during 
last spring's successful season, and asks the stu- 
dent body to come to the aid of the athletic as- 
sociation in the payment of the debt, in order to 
assure the continuance of rowing as an organized 
sport. 

A big "University Night" was recently cele- 
brated at Pennsylvania. Dr. William A. (Billy) 
Sunday and his wife addressed the students of 
the University. Delegates from many of the big 
Eastern colleges were sent to participate in the 
services. 

The University of Oxford is feeling the effects 
of the present war in various disconcerting ways. 
The number of students in attendance is only 
1388, and more than half of these are members 
of the officers training corps. Thirty per cent, 
of the entering class are Rhodes Scholars from 
the United States, and the British Colonies. The 
great loss of attendance has seriously discom- 
moded the prospects of the University financially, 
and as a result most of the colleges are in trouble 
over their tuition charges. Minor reductions in 
expenditures have proved entirely inadequate to 
remove the strain and the only feasible way out 
of the difficulty seems to lie in an immediate rais- 
ing of tuition. 

The student body of Hamilton College recently 
voted to abolish hazing.

At the regular monthly meeting of St. Paul's 
Church Men's Club at Codman House Tuesday 
evening, Professor Ham gave an address on 
"Germany and the War." At two previous meet- 
ings the members had listened to addresses by 
Professor Bell and Professor Woodruff, both 
somewhat favorable to the allies in the European 
war, and this third in the series brought out more 
particularly the position of Germany. Professor 
Ham did not attempt to exonerate Germany from 
blame, but described the course of reasoning 
which the German mind takes in the present sit- 
uation, and furthermore without seeking to jus- 
tify Germany's acts pointed out that she has done 
nothing that other great nations have not done 
under similar circumstances.

Resolutions 

Hall of Lambda of Zeta Psi 
It is with deepest sorrow that the Lambda re- 
cords the death of Brother Frank Leslie Staples 
at his home in Bath, Maine. Brother Staples was 
graduated from Bowdoin in the class of 1889 and 
received the degree 01 Master of Arts from his 
Alma Mater in 1892. 

While in college he won numerous prizes, was 
editor-in-chief of the Orient, and a leader in 
many other activities. He was prominent in 
legal circles throughout the state of Maine and 
had served as Judge of the Municipal Court of 
Bath. As an elder brother in a neighboring city 
his visits at the Chapter were most welcome. 

To his friends and relatives the Chapter wishes 
to extend its most sincere sympathy and to ex- 
press its own sorrow for the loss of a brother. 
John Fox Rollins, 
Don Jerome Edwards, 
Edwin Howard Blanchard, 

For the Chapter. 
Brunswick, Maine, January 9, 1915. 



Hall of Theta of Delta Kappa Epsilon 
January 12, 1915. 

It is with particularly deep regret that Theta 
chapter of Delta Kappa Epsilon records the death 
of Dr. William Palmer Melcher of the class of 
1871. After receiving his degree from Bowdoin 
Brother Melcher spent some years as instructor 
of German at the University of Minnesota. He 
then took the course in medicine at the Univer- 
sity of Pennsylvania, graduating in 1876. Since 
that time he has practiced medicine in New Jer- 
sey with marked success and been recognized as 
a leader in his chosen profession. Brother Mel- 
cher has always retained his interest in the af- 
fairs of the college and his fraternity, being a 
freqent visitor at Commencement time. 

The chapter wishes to express its sorrow for 
the death of a brother who has for over forty 
years been in especially close relations with it 
and to extend its sympathy to his friends and rel- 
atives. 

George Albert Hall, Jr., 
Lawrence Irving, 
Donald Ward Philbrick,

FENCING TEAM LOSES TWO MATCHES 

The Bowdoin fencing team lost its matches to 
both Harvard and Yale last Friday and Satur- 
day. Although the defeat in each case was de- 
cisive, the individual bouts were exceedingly 
close. At Harvard on Friday the score was 7-2. 
Floyd '15, Porritt '15, Leadbetter '16, with Har- 
graves Medic '18 substituting for Leadbetter in 
the third bout, represented Bowdoin. Floyd and 
Porritt each scored a point. 

Saturday the Yale team defeated Bowdoin by a 
score of 9-0. Floyd, Porritt, Leadbetter, with 
Hargraves substituting for Floyd in the third 
bout represented us in this match. 

The next fencing-match is with Springfield 
Y.M.C.A. College at Brunswick, Feb. 20. 



RELAY WORK STIFFENS 
During the past week Coach Magee has been 
putting the relay men through stiff workouts in 
preparation for the approaching meets and in ad- 
dition to practical work on the board track has 
sent the men out for endurance jogs around the 
campus, followed by a fast game of soccer and 
brief setting up work. Nearly all the candidates 
are in good condition and Coach Magee seems 
pleased with their showing. 

BOWDOIN RUNS BROWN SATURDAY 

A race with Brown has been scheduled at the 
Coast Artillery Meet in the South Ar- 
mory, Boston, next Saturday. Brown is report- 
ed to have a fast quartet and Bowdoin will have 
to travel to win out. Each man will run 320 
yards, or two laps, a total of 1280 yards for the 
team. Saturday afternoon the men were put 
through a 320 yard trial on the board track. 
Coach Magee refused to give out any times or 
the order in which the men finished. Those who 
ran are: Stetson '15, Hall '16, Ireland '16, Mc- 
Elwee '16, Sayward '16, Webber '16, Balfe '17, 
Bond '17, Chapman '17, Nute '17, Pierce '17, 
Clark '18, A. Gray '18, Hildreth '18, Stebbins '18, 
C Wyman '18 and L. Wyman '18. The final 
trials for the team that will race Brown will be 
either this afternoon or tomorrow afternoon. 

BOWDOIN VS. MAINE; BATES VS. COLBY 

\t a meeting of representatives of the Maine 
colleges held at the B.A.A. Saturday Manager 
Chase drew Maine as Bowdoin's opponent in the 



preliminary race for the Maine championship to 
be run at the B.A.A. Feb. 6. This leaves Bates 
and Colby paired in the other preliminary. These 
races will be run off in the afternoon and the 
final will come in the evening. A great deal of 
interest has been aroused in this championship 
contest, particularly among the Bowdoin alumni 
around Boston. 

TUFTS RACE CANCELLED 

On account of injuries to several of her star 
runners Tufts has cancelled her race with Bow- 
doin at the Hartford meet Feb. 19 and Manager 
Chase has arranged a race with Boston College 
for that date. Last year Bowdoin had little dif- 
ficulty in defeating Boston College at Providence. 

Last Wednesday afternoon the squad was sent 
through a quarter of a mile on time. The men 
finished in the following order, no times being 
announced: Balfe '17, Hall '16, Crosby '17 and 
C. Wyman '18 tied, Sayward '16, McWilliams 
'15, McElwee '16 and Ireland '16 tied, Bond '17 
and Clark '18 tied, Webber '16, Pettingill '16, 
Stebbins '18, A. Stetson '15, L. Wyman '18, Cut- 
ler '15, Chapman '17, A. Gray '18, Nute '17 and 
Hildreth '18 tied. 



PRESIDENT ALEY SPEAKS THURSDAY 
President Robert J. Aley of the University of 
Maine will speak in Hubbard Hall Thursday 
evening on "The College Man and His Obliga- 
tions." This is the second of the series held 
under the auspices of the Y.M.C.A. 



CLASS OF '68 PRIZE SPEAKING 
The Class of '68 Prize Speaking contest last 
Thursday evening was won by Austin H. Mac- 
Cormick' 15. 

The first speaker was Bacon, and his subject 
was "The Dream of Empire." He showed how 
"the history of the world has been the history of 
the rise and fall of great empires," citing the 
great examples of Egypt, Assyria, Persia, Alex- 
ander's Conquests, Rome, and the empire of Na- 
poleon. Of the present European War, he said 
that after all it is caused by this same underlying 
principle of desire for gain. 

The second oration was entitled "Scotland and 
her Singer," by MacCormick. The speaker de- 
scribed the land and the people. "The glorious,.

BOWDOIN ORIENT 



turbulent history of this country," he said, "is a 
story of undying devotion and desperate support 
of lost causes." He touched upon the character 
of the people, the hardihood, the bitterness of 
struggle, the pathos, and the warmth of feeling 
and affection. These traits he showed are por- 
trayed in the poetry of Robert Burns. 

"The Anglo-Teuton's Danger," was the sub- 
ject of Coffin's speech. "For centuries," he said 
"there has been no greater force for progress in 
the world than the Anglo-Teuton." He showed 
how, all through the ages, the English and Ger- 
mans had worked side by side; although they 
have often been politically opposed, they have 
worked toward the same end, civilization and cul- 
ture. As a result this is a war of brother against 
brother." 

"The Idealist in Politics" was the subject of 
the oration by McKenney. "Not since the days 
of Lincoln," said he, "has idealism been an ele- 
ment in the greater political realm of the United 
States. He showed that at the present time we 
have a president who is an idealist in politics — a 
man whose much-criticised policies are the ex- 
pression of a noble idealism." 

President Hyde presided. The judges were 
Mr. Clarence W. Peabody '93, Rev. Robert R. 
Marson, '98, and Principal William B. Jack. 
They awarded the prize unanimously to Mac- 
Cormick.

PLANS FOR INTERSCHOLASTIC MEET 

An important meeting of the Student Council 
was held Wednesday evening. Plans were dis- 
cussed for extended entertainment at the time 
of the Indoor Interscholastic Meet, which is to 
be held on Saturday, February 28. Special stress 
will be laid on entertainment this year ; a' ^ more 
men will be invited, either as spectators or par- 
ticipants, than ever before. On the Friday after- 
noon preceding ■ the meet, an inter-class hockey 
game is to be held for the entertainment of visit- 
ors who can come as early as that. On Friday 
evening a minstrel show will be given. On Sat- 
urday evening after the meet, a big rally will 
take place, with alumni and undergraduate 
speakers. The Council decided that in order to 
simplify arrangements, all preparatory school 
visitors will be the guests of the minstrel show 
management at the performance.

Last week the Glee and Mandolin Clubs com- 
pleted their annual Maine trip. Thursday eve- 
ning they gave a concert at Skowhegan and under 
the auspices of the junior class of the Skowhe- 
gan High School. Friday evening they appeared

Missionary," "Matilda Von Holt," and "Hank 
Spink." 

After mid-years the Clubs make a trip to 
Massachusetts, giving five or six concerts and 
possibly a trip to New York. Also there will be 
concerts in Portland and nearby towns.

DEAN HODGES COLLEGE PREACHER 

Sunday, Dean George Hodges of the Episcopal 
Theological School in Cambridge was the college 
preacher, appearing at the Church on the Hill in 
the morning, at the Chapel in the afternoon and 
at the St. Paul's Church in the evening. At the 
Chapel exercises he compared the European situ- 
ation with events in history. He said that no em- 
pire founded on strength of armament has ever 
endured long, pointing to Persia, Greece, and 
Rome. He read an interesting letter written by 
one of the old church fathers, Jerome, at the 
time of the sack of Rome. The description of 
ruined cities compared almost exactly with ac- 
counts of the present war. 

Dean Hodges was college preacher at Bowdoin 
in the fall of 1912. He is a graduate of Hamil- 
ton, 1877, and has been given degrees by the 
Western University of Pennsylvania, Hobart and 
the University of Pittsburg, in addition to the 
degrees of A.B., A.M., and LL. D. from Hamil- 
ton. He is the author of many books of a theo- 
logical nature. 



MASQUE AND GOWN 

The Masque and Gown will "present the "Mar- 
riage of Kitty" at Lowell, Mass, on Jan. 30. 
The play will be given in the new gymnasium of 
the Rogers Hall School with the same cast as 
at Gorham. Special permission has been se- 
cured from the faculty to make this trip during 
the time of final exams. 

The play selected for presentation at Ivy time 
is "Jackstraw." This play will be used for the 
spring trips of the Masque and Gown, as the 
Lowell performance is to be the last presentation 
of the "Marriage of Kitty." The Commence- 
ment play will be Shakespeare's "As You Like 
It." Trials for the Ivy and Commencement 
plays will probably be held the first week of the 
second semester. 



BRADBURY DEBATE TRIALS MONDAY 

Trials for the Bradbury debates will be held 
next Monday, Jan. 25, from 2.30 to 6 o'clock. All 
those intending to speak in the trials should hand 
their names at once to either Bacon '15 or Hes- 
cock '16. Assignments of times will be posted on 
the bulletin boards. 



ENGLISH 5 DEBATE 

Last week the regular debate in English 5 was 
held in Memorial Hall. The proposition was 
"Resolved, That at the conclusion of the present, 
the great nations of the world should join in sub- 
stituting for their armies and navies a system of 



international police." Hight '16, Kuhn '15, and 
Edwards '16 supported the affirmative and 
Wright '15, Kinsey '16 and Jones '15 argued for 
the negative. The judges decided unanimously 
in favor of the affirmative. 



"THE DRAMA AS A SOCIAL FORCE" 

A number of students attended the lecture 
"The Drama as a Social Force" delivered by 
Mrs. Beatrice Forbes-Robertson Hale in Memori- 
al Hall Friday evening. The speaker told of the 
origin and early history of the drama and of its 
inspiration to people of all times. The lecture 
was under the auspices of the Saturday Club. 



BOWDOIN JOINS N.C.A.A. 

At the meeting of the National Collegiate Ath- 
letic Association held in Chicago December 29th, 
Bowdoin was represented by Dr. Preston Kyes 
'96. Among the officers elected at the meeting 
was Dr. Whittier as representative for the First 
District, that is, the New England States. This 
is the first year that Bowdoin has belonged to 
the Association. 



ALUMNI ISSUE POSTPONED 
The Orient finds it advisable to postpone for 
one week the alumni issue scheduled for today. 
The Orient wishes to include in the alumni 
number meetings held this week of particular in- 
terest to alumni and feels that a delay of a week 
will aid in the publication of a larger and better 
issue. 



BUGLE CONTRIBUTORS 

All students who wish to contribute to the 1916 
Bugle are requested to call at the editor's room 
at the Psi U house between 1 and 1.30 Wednes- 
day noon. Jokes not old enough to vote, draw- 
ings, photographs about the campus or of games 
at Whittier Field will be welcome. 



SAVE THE WOMEN AND CHILDREN FIRST 
Thanks to the bravery and presence of mind 
of Sam West, Melloon '15 is now on the- campus 
instead of at the bottom of the Augusta Y.M.C.A. 
swimming pool. While swimming in the pool 
in company with several other members of the 
Musical Clubs Saturday afternoon Melloon was 
seized with a dizzy spell and sank beyond his 
depth. In response to Melloon's cries for first 
aid West plunged into' the water and reached him 
just as he was going down for the second time. 
Melloon struggled and forced his rescuer under 
so that the latter had to strike him unconscious.

The Interscholastic Meet 

The Indoor Interscholastic Meet, coming on 
Feb. 27, is still some weeks away, but already 
plans are being made to make the most of this 
great opportunity to get in touch with prepara- 
tory school men. The policy with regard to this 
meet has been to let the splendid facilities of the 
gymnasium and the other visible advantages of 
Bowdoin work on the visiting athlete and leave 
to the fraternities the task of presenting the 
value of Bowdoin, the less apparent and more im- 
portant value. It is the feeling now that a laisses 
faire policy on the part of the student body as a 
whole has failed, and that efforts should be made 
to see that every preparatory school man who 



visits Bowdoin goes away with a full realization 
of what Bowdoin stands for, what undergradu- 
ate life is, what some of our activities are, and 
what a good thing it is to be a Bowdoin man. 
The time to stand back and let Bowdoin worth 
sink into the mind of the preparatory school fel- 
low has passed and the time has come to see that 
that worth is impressed on every man. We are 
trying more and more to stir up our alumni to 
talk Bowdoin to the preparatory school men with 
whom they come in contact and it is our duty 
when these men come to see the college, to pre- 
sent them with a vivid picture of Bowdoin. 

At the Indoor Interscholastic Meet there will 
be scores of athletes and many of their support- 
ers. The Student Council voted at its last meet- 
ing to try this year to entertain these men, 
more than ever before, to invite them to come 
on Friday, the day before the meet, on that after- 
noon to have interclass hockey games, Friday 
evening to have a Minstrel Show, at which the 
visitors will be guests, and Saturday evening 
after the meet to have a big rally with the band, 
extra musical features, refreshments, and short 
speeches by two or three prominent alumni and 
undergraduates. It is hoped that more men will 
come to attend this meet than ever before and 
that the fraternity houses will be thrown open 
to the maximum number of men that they are 
able to care for. 

For the success of these plans, the support of 
the whole student body is needed, both in the en- 
tertainment in general and in the Minstrel Show 
particularly. Men are urged to invite their 
friends in the preparatory schools to come for 
these two days and then to get behind the move- 
ment to entertain them. It will be only three 
weeks after mid-year examinations to the day of 
the meet and we cannot begin too soon, if we are 
to begin a definite campaign to show Bowdoin 
to prospective Bowdoin men. 

The Saturday Club 

The students were again reminded of the tre- 
mendous debt they owe to the Saturday Club 
last Friday evening, when they heard Mrs. Bea- 
trice Forbes-Robertson Hale in her brilliant 
talk on 'The Drama as a Social Force." Through 
the cooperation of the Saturday Club with the 
College, the students are able without expense to 
hear at various times through the year perform- 
ances which are uniformly high in standard. For 
these opportunities they are sincerely grateful to 
the Saturday Club.

COMMUNICATION 

Hartford Theological Seminary 
Hartford, Connecticut 

Jan. 12, 1915. 
Dear Undergraduates : — 

I am sure that I have not been out of college 
so long as to have been entirely forgotten by 
everyone. In the midst of college men from 
Maine to California, in fact, from all over the 
world, I find myself the only Bowdoin "toad in 
the puddle." As we gather around for a sing and 
college songs are being sung, my only helpmate 
is a good Colby fellow, who joins with me in sing- 
ing Phi Chi. 

I personally want to invite, through the means 
of the Orient's colmun any Bowdoin man or 
men to visit me here in Hartford during the 
week end of March 19-21. You men who were 
privileged to attend the wonderful gathering of 
college students at the Student Volunteer Con- 
vention at Kansas City last year, and others of 
you not so favored, will be interested to hear of 
a conference to be held here in Hartford at this 
week end. Among the speakers for this gathering 
are Robert E. Spear, President, Fitch, Dr. Cadman 
and John R. Mott. These men are going to talk 
about the Ministry of the Gospel as a profession, 
or the Gospel Ministry as the supreme service of 
the man of today. If your vocation does not 
seem evident at this time, give the Ministry of 
Jesus Christ a fair and thoughtful consideration. 
Particulars about this gathering of college men 
will be explained by men who are to visit all the 
eastern colleges some time in February. 

This is an attempt to help you to solve the 
greatest of all problems. What I am going to 
make of my life? This will be the greatest con- 
ference of its kind ever meeting in New England. 
It is an opportunity of a life time. Hoping it will 
induce some of you to spend a little time and 
money in making the trip, 

I am. 

Very truly yours, 

Carl D. Skillin. 

Bowdoin 1912.

appropriate to the principal entrances to the col- 
lege grounds, have been made by Mr. Felix A. 
Burton, Bowdoin '07. These designs for brick 
and stone, one for the main entrance to Whittier 
Field and the other for a general entrance to the 
campus, may be seen at the Art Building. 

The Curator of the Art Building reports that 
the drop in attendance since the influx of summer 
tourists ceased is about one-half. Fully one-fifth 
of the present visitors are students. It is a mat- 
ter of encouragement to note that undergraduates 
exhibit considerable appreciation of Bowdoins 
valuable art collections, which the outside world 
takes so much pains to visit. 

Some very beautiful new sepia albertype cards 
of the Museum and other college buildings are

€&e Otbet Colleges 

Beginning next fall Yale will be in a position 
to take care of the exceptional student, the man 



who aims to get all he can out of his four years 
in college, and who is not satisfied to stay in the 
"average class." The university is already mak- 
ing plans for its honours courses which are being 
used with success in a few other institutions. 

So many and varied have been the recent crit- 
icisms of the Yale chapter of Phi Beta Kappa 
that the society has about decided to adopt meth- 
ods of making itself more valuable to the uni- 
versity as an inspiration to true scholarship. 
What will be done is not yet decided, but it does 
appear certain that the requirements for admis- 
sion will be increased. Various suggestions for 
improvements have been made and the society 
is considering them all. Real action will be taken 
before the winter is over. 

Tulane University, as an indirect result of agi- 
tation for compulsory military drill in colleges, 
which has lately been spreading over the country, 
is going to institute compulsory drill for its stu- 
dents. 

Here is a new yell from the Southern Col- 
leges. Fifteen "rahs," and and whoop, whoop, 
whee. It is a popular warcry in the land of cot- 
ton. 

During the past week M.I.T. seniors in the 
chemical, electrical and mechanical engineering 
courses have been running their annual plant 
test, to test the efficiency of each plant. The men 
work in parties of six, for eight hour shifts. 
During the shifts which take place at 8 a. m., 4 
p. m., and midnight, the men are served hot cof- 
fee so that no time will be lost by eating of a full 
meal. 

M.I.T. has adopted a scheme whereby men, 
winning their letters in more than one sport or 
successively in one branch, will be awarded stars 
for each time they win their letters afterwards, 
to wear alongside of the "T." This custom is al- 
ready in vogue at West Point and Annapolis. 

Five students from the University of Washing- 
ton succeeded in carrying a motion-picture 
camera to the summit of Mt. Rainier and photo- 
graphing the crater and Columbia Crest, the 
highest point of the peak. The altitude of Mt. 
Rainier, according to the last government survey, 
is fourteen thousand, four hundred and eight 
feet. This is the highest point to which a motion- 
picture camera has ever been carried. 

About a third of the number of the students at 
the University of Maine are dependent entirely 
upon their own efforts for the money necessary 
for their college course. 

Tufts has adopted a recognition pin for its 
graduates and undergraduates. The pin is a 
small circular disc of blue with a brown "T" in-

scribed on it. This movement is one which has 
been started but recently among the eastern col- 
leges. 

All men of the wrestling squad at the Univer- 
sity of Pennsylvania must sign a pledge to abstain 
from the use of tobacco and alcohol in any form 
during the wrestling season. 

At present there are eighty-four "H" men at 
Harvard University. Two men hold their "H" 
in three sports, while nine men have won them in 
two. Exeter, Groton, and Milton Academies lead 
in preparing the greatest number of "H" men, 
with a total of eleven each. 

Dr. F. J. Born, the Medical Examiner of Yale 
University, claims that the college man of today 
is superior, physically, to the college man of the 
last generation and cites the following figures 
which represent the physical measurement of 
the classes of 1910, and 1864 at Yale: 

1910 1864 

Senior Dr. Gould's 

Class Statistics 

Age 22.2 21.7 

Height 68.1 in. 68.09 in. 

Weight 152.3 lbs. 136.1 lbs.

Chest, nor. 36.9 in 35.3 in. 

Chest, in. 38.7 in. 36.7 in. 

Chest, ex. 35.3 in. 33.7 in. 

This fact is, he believes, a result of the larger 
appreciation of the influence of the physical up- 
on the mental and moral, and the increased facil- 
ities for phsical development which have come 
with this appreciation. 

The students of Harvard University are raising 
a fund of $10,000 to equip and maintain a "Har- 
vard University Unit" at the American hospital 
in Paris. 

In a monster demonstration held last week in 
Philadelphia for the purpose of securing better

One of the largest individual gifts made to 
higher education in years is announced at Ober- 
lin, which has just received a bequest of $3,000,- 
000 from the estate of the late Charles N. Hall 
of Niagara Falls. To a great extent this legacy 
is made without conditions and the college will 
eventually be able to devote the fund to the de- 
partments which need it most. All colleges are 
looking for money, but the gifts which they ap- 
preciate most are those which are unrestricted. 
The Hall bequest virtually doubles Oberlin's en- 
dowment. 

An interesting tabulation of the effect of John 



Kendrick Bangs's lecture, "Other Salubrities I 
Have Met" upon the student body was made by 
The Dartmouth recently. Under the title "John 
K. Bangs's Record for 1915," the reporter has 
tabulated the fact that Mr. Bangs drew 105 real 
laughs, 65 plain chuckles, and 46 mere smiles 
from the undergraduates assembled in College 
Hall. According to The Dartmouth, this is an 
increase over last year's record made by Mr. 
Bangs in speaking upon "Salubrities I Have 
Met," when he evoked 138 unclassified laughs. 
In the course of his lecture Mr. Bangs compli- 
mented Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wil- 
son as prominent "salubrities" of the present day. 

Dartmouth College, through the Amos Tuck 
School of Finance and Business Administration, 
has announced a course of employment as a func- 
tion of management. This is the first recognition 
by any business school of the importance of the 
employment function in modern management. 
The course will be open to all second year stu- 
dents. It is intended both for men who propose 
to enter industries where the employment func- 
tion is not specialized and for those entering 
specialized employment departments. In addi- 
tion to class room work the men will be drilled 
in practical employment conditions by investiga- 
tion. It is a combination of theoretical and prac- 
tical elements. 

Class hockey is being agitated at the University 
of Maine instead of the usual season of basket

The University of Cincinnati is presenting to 
its students and the public of the city a set of 
moving pictures to show how things in common 
use are made, and in this way to disseminate in- 
dustrial and vocational information. The work 
started at Girard College in October ; the Univer- 
sity of Pittsburgh has also used the system. 

President Cavanaugh of Notre Dame has of- 
fered the use of the University buildings free of 
charge to the faculty and students of the Univer- 
sity of Louvain, and as a result a number of them 
will probably pursue their work there until condi- 
tions make possible a resumption of exercises in 
Belgium. .

The Tech Council at Worcester Polytechnic 
Institute has appointed a committee to consider 
the matter of some sort of "recognition pin" by 
which W.P.I, students and alumni may identify

The annual list of honor scholarships at Brown 
contains nine Seniors, six Juniors and three Soph-

'63. — News of the death of George Augustine 
Haines in Cadenabbia, Italy, on Jan. 5 has been 
received. Mr. Haines was born on Aug. 2, 1843, 
in Biddeford, Maine, the son of Augustine and 
Frances (Patten) Haines and was a brother of 
the late Charles Glidden Haines of the class of 
1861. While in College he became a member of 
Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity, won first prize 
for Sophomore declamation and was a member 
of the Athenaean Literary Society. In 1866 he 
received the degree of Master of Arts from his 
Alma Mater. After his graduation he spent three 
years in Biddeford in gaining a practical knowl- 
edge of cotton manufacturing in all its bearings 
and from the autumn of 1866 until the spring of 
1868 in Europe, the last few months in the manu- 
facturing centers of England. From 1871 to 1873 
he was engaged in the cotton brokerage business 
in Mobile, Alabama, and from 1873 to 1881 in 
Boston, when he retired from active business. 
His wife was the late Josephine Law May 
Haines, daughter of the late George Law of New 
York. Mr. Haines has spent most of his time 
abroad and for many years has resided in his 
villa at Caddenabbia, on Lake Como. 

'71. — Augustine Simmons of North Anson was 
made vice-president of the Maine State Bar As- 
sociation at its meeting held in Augusta. 

'73. — Albert J. Boardman, formerly president 
of the Board of Park Commissioners and corpo- 
ration agent of Philadelphia, is now located at 
Beverly Hills, Califoria.

ica a plan to establish landing stations for aero- 
planes throughout the United States and has of- 
fered, for use as a landing station, an island of 
30 acres, ten miles east of Portland. 

'89. — Frank Leslie Staples, Esq., for many 
years one of the leading lawyers of Bath, Maine, 
died at his home Dec. 31 following a lingering 
illness of over four months from heart trouble. 
Judge Staples was born in Topsham on Jan. 28, 
1866, the son of Charles A. and Miranda C. 
(Taylor) Staples. He received his early educa- 
tion in the public schools of Benton, Maine, and 
at Coburn Classical Institute. At Bowdoin he 
became a member of Zeta Psi fraternity, was 
editor-in-chief of the Orient, won first prize in 
Sophomore, Junior and Senior declamations, sec- 
ond prize in extemporaneous composition, the 
Goodwin Commencement prize, and first award 
in the Class of '68 Prize Speaking. He was pres- 
ident of the Baseball Association, vice-president 
of the Tennis Association and of the Bicycle 
Club and a director of his class athletic associa- 
tions. Shortly after graduation he began the 
study of law in the office of Baker, Baker and 
Cornish of Augusta under the late Orville D. 
Baker of the class of 1868. He was admitted to 
the bar in 1891, and commenced the practice of 
his profession the same year in Bath, returning 
to Augusta in 1893 and forming a law partner- 
ship with Mr. Baker, his former instructor. In 
1898 he returned to Bath where he continued in 
practice until his death. From 1906 to 1908 he 
was in partnership with Walter S. Glidden, Esq., 
of the class of 1902 but with that exception prac- 
ticed his profession alone. 

He served as Judge of the Bath Municipal 
Court from 1904 to 1908 with marked ability, but 
although always intelligently interested in poli- 
tics was not a seeker of political office and never 
filled any other public position. He was mar- 
ried in 1896 to Miss Annie Louise Roberts, who, 
with a daughter, Muriel Roberts Staples, sur- 
vives him, as do also his father and a sister living 
in Gardiner.

RELAY TEAM BEATS BROWN IN FAST TIME 
Bowdoin was victorious in the relay race with 
Brown at the Coast Artillery Meet which was 
held at the South Armory in Boston Saturday. 
Bowdoin was represented by C. H. Crosby '17, 
D. W. Pierce '17, E. M. Balfe '17 and C. E. Wy- 
man, Jr., '18. The Brown runners were J. F. 
Halloway, J. B. Dunn, L. Hall and E. R. Walsh. 
The first Brown runner fell but it was evident 
that Bowdoin would have won in spite of the 
Brown man's unfortunate tumble. 

Bowdoin"s time of 2 minutes 36 1-5 seconds was 
surpassed only by Harvard's record of 2.343-5 
against M.I.T. and Tom Halpin's team which fin- 
ished in 2.34 4-5. Bowdoin's record looks good 
beside that of Boston College which was beaten 
by Rhode Island State in 2.403-5. Tufts beat the 
Massachusetts Aggies in 2.39 4-5, and Worcester 
Polytech made 2.404-5 and these records look 
encouraging for our team. 

OTHER RELAY NEWS 

Two separate relay teams are to be picked to 
represent Bowdoin at the Hartford and Provi- 
dence meets. In the race with Boston College at 
Hartford on Feb. 19, each man will run 440 
yards. At Providence on Feb. 20, in the race 
against Trinity, each man of the other team will 
run 352 yards. The trials for these teams will 
be immediately after the BAA. meet. 



FOOTBALL COACH NOT YET CHOSEN 

Lawrence F. Whitney was dropped from the 
list of possibilities as Bowdoin's next football 
coach when he .signed a contract as assistant 
coach of the Pennsylvania State College team for 
next fall. A rumor to the effect that Robert L. 
P. Storer, captain of the Harvard eleven in 1913, 
had signed a contract was published in several 
newspapers as coming from an authoritative 
source, but the football committee of the Athletic 
Council has denied this and has authorized the 
following statement: "No contract has been 
made with Storer and it is understood that he is 
not now being considered." The committee said 
that it would secure a first class man if one is 
available and that an announcement would prob- 
ably be made in the near future. 

At the recent meeting of the Alumni Associa- 
tion of Boston President Hyde said that no econ- 



omy would be practiced in securing competent 
coaches. Students and alumni are anxious for 
some announcement and in view of the state- 
ments made by President Hyde and the Athletic 
Council we may be sure that the man or men se- 
cured will be of the best calibre. 



BOSTON ALUMNI MEET 
About 130 members attended the 47th annual 
dinner of the Association of Bowdoin Alumni in 
Boston last Wednesday evening. President 
Hyde was the guest of honor. He devoted his 
remarks to things that had been accomplished 
during the year and spoke of plans for the fu- 
ture. He promised the assemblage that there 
would be no economy practised to prevent pro- 
curing enough and competent coaches for the 
athletic interests of the College and hoped there 
would be more games with colleges in Boston and 
vicinity. He said, "We must beware of an arro- 
gant superciliousness that is likely to be devel- 
oped should we follow a recent trend, and that is 
the attitude of pulling out our connections from 
colleges whose athletic standard is not what we 
would like our own to be. We are welcoming 
national fraternities to establish chapters at our 
College ; they are an intellectual, moral and social 
stimulus. We hope to get more of them." 

President Edwin U. Curtis '82, ex-mayor of 
Boston, was toastmaster at the dinner, and seat- 
ed with him at the head table were the speakers 
of the evening, James L. Doherty '84 of Spring- 
field, Mass., Professor George T. Files '89, 
George P. Hyde '08 and Robert Hale '10 of Bos- 
ton, and Austin H. MacCormick '15 who repre- 
sented the undergraduates, and half a score of 
older alumni, — Edward Stanwood '61, J. W. 
Chadwick '62, Isaac B. Choate '62, Thomas 
Shepard '65, M. C. Stone '65, John F. Eliot 
'73, William G. Reed '73, Freeman C. Her-

NEW FRATERNJTY AT BOWDOIN 

A new fraternity has been formed at Bowdoin 
under the name of Beta Chi. The fraternity is a 
local and is heartily endorsed by President Hyde 
and the faculty. The names of the members have 
not yet been divulged. 



BOWDOIN MEN IN MAINE LEGISLATURE 
With the recent sitting of the Legislature in 
the State of Maine, a glance at its personnel with 
reference to Bowdoin men is interesting. Of the 
182 members of the present Legislature 26 are 
men with a college education. Twelve of these 
are Bowdoin men. Of the 31 members of the 
Senate there are two alumni of Bowdoin out of 
the five who have received a collegiate education 
and of the 151 members of the House, nine 
alumni and one undergraduate out of 21 with 
collegiate education. Eleven of these twelve 
sons of Bowdoin are Democrats and the remain- 
ing one a Republican. There are six physicians, 
one of whom also claims the title of farmer, three 
lawyers, one student who is to study law, a civil 
engineer, and a city treasurer. Two classes, 
Medic '94 and Academic '03, can boast of two 
members each. 

THE SENATE 

Dr. Henry M. Moulton '87 of Cumberland 
Center has always been a Democrat and is the 
Senator-physician-farmer. He was a member of 
the House in 1907 and 1909 and of the Senate in 
1911 and 1913. Two things in particular may be 
largely credited to Dr. Moulton's efforts and in- 
terest in agriculture. He brought about a large 
appropriation in the Legislature of 1909 for the 
protection of cattle from tuberculosis and he 
fought valiantly for the uniform milk can law 
which farmers regarded as one of the most im- 
portant pieces of legislation enacted for their 
benefit by the 74th Legislature. He is a member 
of the joint committees on Commerce, Banks and 
Banking, Public Health, and Agriculture in the 
present Legislature. 

Dr. Wallace N. Price, Medic '94, is a practicing 
physician in Richmond. He is a Democrat and 
was a member of the Legislature in 1913. He 
has served on the Board of Health of Richmond 
and as a pension examiner of Sagadahoc County. 
In the present Legislature he is a member of the 
joint committees on Railroads and Expresses, 
Towns, and Library. 



THE HOUSE 

Dr. Cecil E. Wasgatt, Medic '82, of Deer Isle 
is a physician and surgeon and is examining sur- 
geon for the Bureau of Pensions. He was elect- 
ed by Democratic constituents and is a member 
of the joint committees on Taxation and Insane 
Hospitals. 

Charles A. Corliss '83 of Bath is a Democrat 
and has practiced his profession as a civil engi- 
neer in that city for about thirty years. He is a 
member of the joint committee on' Railroads and 
Expresses. 

Dr. Isaac D. Harper, Medic '85, of Gorham, 
always a Republican, is the lone representative of 
that faith in Bowdoin's legislative delegation at 
Augusta. He is a successful practicing physi- 
cian at Go'rham, has been a member of the super- 
intending school committee and was a member of 
the last House. In the present Legislature he is 
a member of the joint committee on Insane Hos- 
pitals. 

Dr. Albert W. Plummer, Medic '94, of Lisbon 
Falls is a Democrat and practicing physician. He 
was a member of the Legislature in 191 1 and 
1913 and in the present Legislature is a member 
of the Joint Committees on Taxation and Insane 
Hospitals. 

Dr. Richard T. Leader, Medic '02, of Lewiston 
is a physician. In 1905 and 1906 he was a mem- 
ber of the Board of Aldermen in that city and 
was a member of the House in 1907 and 1913. 
In the present Legislature he is a member of the 
joint committee on Commerce and State Prison. 

Charles P. Conners '03, a lawyer in Bangor, is 
one of the most prominent of the younger mem- 
bers of the legal profession in that part of the 
state. He was a member of the last House, suc- 
ceeding his father, and at present is a member of 
the joint committees on the Judiciary and Revi- 
sion of the Statutes. 

Niles L. Perkins '03 is treasurer and tax col- 
lector of Augusta. He has been a member of the 
City Council, treasurer of the Democratic County 
and City Committees. He is now a member of 
the joint committee on Insane Hospitals. 

Leonard A. Pierce '05 of Houlton is one of the 
prominent younger men in the legal fraternity in 
Aroostook and is a member of the Maine Board 
of Bar Examiners. He is a member of the joint 
committees on the Judiciary, Military Affairs, 
and Revision of the Statutes. 

John D. Clifford '10 of Lewiston is a practicing 
attorney. He has been chairman of the Andro- 
scoggin County Democratic Committee for the 
past three years and a member of the Lewiston 
City Committee. He is a member of the joint 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



218 



committee on Legal Affairs, Labor, and Revision 
of the Statutes. 

James A. Lewis '15 of North Haven, still an 
undergraduate at Bowdoin, intends to study law. 
So far as it is possible to ascertain he is the first 
Bowdoin undergraduate to be a member of the 
Legislature. He has represented his home town 
in the Democratic State Conventions of 1910, 
1912 and 1914. He is a member of the Legal Af- 
fairs Joint Committee of the present Legislature. 



NEW YORK ALUMNI MEET JAN. 29 
The New York alumni will have their annual 
meeting Jan. 29 and will elect officers for the 
next year. The present officers are George W. 
Tillson '"/J, president, and Joseph B. Roberts '95, 
secretary. The College will be represented by 
President Hvde. 



ALUMNI IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES 

By a survey of the address list of living grad- 
uates of the College one finds not infrequently 
that Bowdoin men are living in foreign lands. 
At present thers are twenty-two, besides 14 in 
Canada and the territories and possessions of the 
United States. Nearly half of those in foreign 
countries are younger graduates engaged in the 
hanking business. 

The oldest alumnus abroad is the Hon. William 
Widgery Thomas, A.M., LL.D., '60, who for 
many years was in the consular and the diplo- 
matic services of the United States. He served 
for about 15 years as Envoy Extraordinary and 
Minister Plenipotentiary to Sweden arid Norway 
under three different presidents and his home is 
now in Stockholm, Sweden. In 1913 the College 
granted him the degree of Doctor of Laws. 

Professor John E. Dinsmore, A.M. '83, was en- 
gaged in educational work in Maine for 13 years 
and since 1898 has continued his profession in 
the American Colony, at Jerusalem, Palestine. 

Professor Joseph Torrey, A.M., Ph.D., '84, for 
many years a chemist and professor of chemistry 
has been engaged as a manufacturer in Liver- 
pool. England, since 1903. 

Dr. Charles S. F. Lincoln '91 after having 
practiced medicine in Louisville, Ky., four years 
became a surgeon in 1898 at St. John's College, 
Shanghai, China, where he has since remained. 
He was present at Commencement in 1913. 

Sterling Fessenden, Esq., '96 was for a number 
of years connected with the American Trading 
Company in New York, the island of Trinidad, 
and Shanghai, China. In 1906, however, he en- 
tered upon the practice of law in the latter city 
where he has since remained. 

Percy A. Babb '00 since his graduation has 



been engaged in mining operations in the United 
States and Mexico. Since 1905 he has been lo- 
cated at Mexico City where he is connected with 
several large mining corporations. 

Albro L. Burnell '00 is the only Bowdoin alum- 
nus now in the consular service of the United 
States. For six years after graduation he was 
engaged in educational work and since 1908 has 
been in the consular service. He was only re- 
cently transferred from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to 
Rouen, France. 

James O. Hamilton '02, after having spent sev- 
eral years in physical educational work, went to 
Cuba in 1906 where he has since been engaged in 
mercantile and land business at Camaguey. 

Walton T. Henderson '05 was engaged in edu- 
cational work for two years after graduation but 
since 1907 has been a mining engineer in Mexico. 
He is now located at Etzatlan, Jalisco, Mexico. 

William W. Fairclough '08 was engaged in 
teaching for several years after his graduation 
but is now studying German at the University of 
Berlin. 

Rev. Anand S. Hiwale '09 since his graduation 
has been engaged in missionary work in his na- 
tive country, being located at Satara, India. 

Laurence A. Crosby '13, who was appointed the 
Rhodes Scholar from Maine the year of his grad- 
uation, is at Trinity College, Oxford, England. 

The International Banking Corporation claims 
the services of ten Bowdoin men in foreign fields 
at present, most of them being in far eastern 
countries. They are John H. Brett '05 at Peking, 
China; Charles J. Donnell '05 and Richard E. 
Shaw '06 at Kobe, Japan ; Harold S. Stetson '06, 
temporarily at the London office which has been 
made short-handed because of the war; Charles 
R. Bennett '07 at Hong Kong, China; Arthur C. 
Chadbourne '07 at Mexico City, Mexico ; Walter 
D. Lee '08 at Yokohama, Japan ; John L. Curtis 
'11 at Panama, Republic of Panama; Edward W. 
Torrey '12 at Ancon, Canal Zone; and Ray E. 
Palmer '13 at London. 



CLASS SECRETARIES 

As no list of class secretaries has been pub- 
lished recently, the Orient attempts now to pre- 
sent one. Although not complete, because the 
compiler is in doubt as to who is the present sec- 
retary of some of the classes, even in its incom- 
plete form, it is hoped that it may be of some ser- 
vice to the alumni. Corrections and additions to 
the following list will be welcomed by the 
Orient:

BOWDOIN MEN WHO SERVED CONFEDERACY 

Although it is well known that Bowdoin men 
were prominent in the Federal army in the Civil 
War, the fact that a handful of Bowdoin alumni 
served the South just as faithfully as their col- 
lege mates fought for the North is not so gener- 
ally known. According to information given in 
the general catalogue and material in the posses- 
sion of the librarian, 14 graduates of the College 
fought for the Stars and Bars.' Nine of these be- 
came commissioned officers and two were sur-' 
geons. Six died in action or as the result of 
wounds or exposure. All but two were men of 
northern birth who settled in the South and be- 
came imbued with Southern feeling. 

The one exception to this Southern loyalty was 
Winthrop Norton '60, a teacher in Sterling, 
Texas. He was impressed into the rebel army 
and was forced to serve against his will through- 
out the battles of the Peninsula. A letter from 
him, dated in August, 1862, censored by the Con- 
federates, gave veiled hints that he was fighting 
the Union only because he was forced to do so. 
"His friends are persuaded that he was through- 
out loyal to his country," says his class report. 
He fell at the battle of Chickamauga in 1863. 

John Wallingford Goodwin '44, the oldest Bow- 
doin man in the Confederacy, was a civil engi- 
neer in the South and at the outbreak of the war 
enlisted in the Mobile Rifles, later a part of the 
23rd Alabama regiment. He became major of 
engineers, was on the staff of General Bragg and 
took active part in the battles of Corinth and 
Chatanooga. 

His classmate, John McDonald Morrill, a law- 
yer in Tennessee, was a captain of the Tennessee 
volunteers. Exposure in camp brought on a fever 
and he died after a few weeks' illness in 1861. 

Dr. George Frost Mellen '46 was a physician in 
Mississippi before the war. He served as a. pri- 
vate soldier for a year and after the fall of Yicks- 
burg re-enlisted as a hospital surgeon, serving 
until the close of the war. Dr. Mellen was with 



BOWDOIN ORIENT 



Walker in his last expedition to Nicauragne and 
was wrecked with him on the coast of Honduras. 
Henry Donald Whitcomb '47 during- the re- 
bellion controlled the transportation of General 
Lee's munitions. He was an engineer of unusual 
ability and at the close of the war was secured by 
the Chesapeake & Ohio R. R. to rebuild the track 
near Richmond. The ties had been burned and 
the rails twisted and only one bridge and three 
stations were standing. While the company had 
millions of Confederate money it had only $45 in 
silver, but Major Whitcomb had trains running 
in less than two months after he started work. 

Jaspar Strong Whiting, a classmate of Major 
Whitcomb, was a major on the staff of rebel 
General Smith, but died of scarlet fever in Rich- 
mond in 1861. 

Joseph Christmas Ives '48 was the only Bow- 
doin Confederate who had served in the United 
States army prior to the war. He rose to the 
rank of colonel of engineers and near the close 
of the war was an aide to President Jefferson 
Davis. The collapse of his cause was a great 
blow to him and he died in 1869. 

James Lowe Hoole '49 before the war was a 
teacher and lawyer in Mississippi. He was made 
captain and served on the staffs of Generals Polk, 
Lee and Taylor, being with the latter at Meridan, 
Miss., at the close of the war. 

Arthur McArthur '50 was captain and later 
major in the 6th Louisiana. He was killed in 
battle at Winchester, Va., May 25, 1862, while 
gallantly leading his regiment. His brother Wil- 
liam, of the class of 1852, an officer in the Federal 
army, has written the librarian an interesting 
letter telling how he secured permission to enter 
the Confederate lines in search of news of his 
brother while negotiations for surrender were 
pending in 1865. 

John Cummings Merrill '51 served for three 
years as a surgeon in the 1st and 26th Mississippi 
regiments. He was in the battles of Shiloh, Fort 
Donelson and Champion Hill and was at the 
siege of Vicksburg. 

Little is known of the service of William 
Oliver Otis '51, other than that he was in the 
Southern army for four years. 

John Farnham Shaw '55 enlisted as a private. 
He died in 1863 in a Southern hospital. 

Robert McKown Spearing '57 died in action at 
the battle of Fredericksburg, Dec. 13, 1862. He 
was a colonel at the time of his death. 

The youngest Bowdoin man in the rebel army 
was Major Sidney Michael Finger. A native of 
North Carolina, he enlisted in the nth North 
Carolina and was made successively quarter- 
master sergeant, captain and major. 



ALUMNI LETTER 

The following letter has been sent out by the 
Student Council to the alumni of the College : 

Brunswick, Maine, January, 1915. 
Dear Sir: 

Conscious of the warm interest manifested by 
Bowdoin alumni in the present welfare and fu- 
ture development of the College, we as under- 
graduates now appeal for your support in the 
furtherance of a project by which we hope to 
meet the needs of a most unsatisfactory situation. 
You are probably aware that while the high in- 
tellectual ideals of our College have been main- 
tained, her competition in various activities, es- 
pecially in athletics, has not lately been of a 
standard with which any of her friends can rest 
content. For this there is but one simple explan- 
ation. While the number of men at Bowdoin is 
greater than ever before, the proportion of those 
who can add to her athletic fame seems to be 
growing less year by year. Such men would 
come to us naturally in sufficient numbers were it 
not for the better work of the graduates and stu- 
dents in other institutions. We men of Bowdoin 
do not properly support our college in securing 
good material for the different branches of sport. 
Knowing that our alumni are second to none, 
we feel that it needs only your individual effort 
and active cooperation with us to put an end to 
this state of affairs. Therefore we appeal to you 
to spare a few hours from your business and talk 
Bowdoin to some preparatory school lad who is 
really worth while; whose previous development 
and ability will be an asset to the College; and 
who can help maintain its prestige and advance 
its reputation in outside undergraduate activi- 
ties. 

The most effective work we believe is accom- 
plished by frequent interviews with prospective 
college men and their parents. Try to make them 
realize that no other institution of its kind has 
more to offer than Bowdoin. Distribute- the de- 
scriptive literature issued from here to the right 
men in your locality. Why not take the time now 
to fill out the enclosed blank with the kind of 
names and information desired and mail it to the 
secretary of the Student Council? If you will 
only write to us and let us know what your sug- 
gestions are for the prosecution of this scheme 
or the adoption of other plans, you will afford 
us the great stimulus and encouragement of 
knowing that you are behind us. 
Your very truly, 
G. Arthur McWilliams, 
Edward R. El well, 
Austin H. MacCormick, 
Committee from the Student Council.

The Alumni Letler 

There have been mailed to many of the alumni 
copies of a letter which is printed in this issue of 
the Orient. For financial reasons the committee 
in charge of the letter found it impossible to send 
copies to all the alumni, but it is hoped that many 
will be reached indirectly. 

The letter seems to strike what must be the 
keynote in all dealings between alumni and un- 
dergraduates, "Cooperation." It does not follow 
the easy course of criticizing the alumni for not 
sending more men to Bowdoin, without offering 
any definite plan of interesting men and keeping 
them interested. Instead it acknowledges the 
joint obligation of alumni and undergraduates to 
the College, the duty of the alumni to get in touch 
with men, and the duty of the undergraduates to 
aid in the work of interesting them in Bowdoin. 

With each letter slips are mailed which when 



filled in will give the essential information con- 
cerning men with whom it is desired to keep in 
touch. The Student Council committee proposes 
to keep an alphabetical file of these slips, to see 
that descriptive literature is mailed to the men, 
and to employ the various means of acquainting 
them with Bowdoin. 

This plan requires conscientious and careful 
work on the part of the undergraduates but it is 
on the efforts of the alumni that its success de- 
pends for the most part. It is the alumni who are 
best able to find men who will make good Bow- 
doin men and to interest them and their parents. 
What an alumnus says with regard to his Col- 
lege carries weight, with a parent in particular, 
for the alumnus is looking at the matter from the 
same view-point as the boy's father, whereas the 
very enthusiasm of the undergraduate oftentimes 
lessens the force of his arguments. The alumnus 
who looks at things in a hard-headed, business- 
like way, and who still retains his enthusiasm and 
spirited interest in his College, has tremendous 
power in winning men for that college. 

The alumni have been offered a definite plan 
for getting men to Bowdoin, a plan in which they 
are to do their part with the assurance that those 
on the campus will do their part as well. It is 
hoped that the interest which has stirred the 
alumni so strongly in the past few months will 
find expression in loyal, determined efforts on 
their part, and earnest cooperation from the stu- 
dent body. 



The Relay Victory 

Although the victory of the relay team over 
Brown was marred by Brown's misfortune, the 
team is to be congratulated on the fast time in 
which the race was run. The time compares very 
favorably with that of the close Harvard-Tech 
race and the results are particularly encouraging 
when one remembers that the Bowdoin team in- 
cluded only one veteran and that none of the men 
who ran will graduate this year. The races be- 
tween the Maine colleges at the B.A.A. games 
promise a close contest for the championship. 



The Orient appreciates the aid of Charles A. 
Flagg '94 in the preparation of this alumni issue. 

1865 AND 1875 PLAN REUNIONS 
During Commencement week the class of 1865 
will have its fiftieth reunion while 1875 will cele- 
brate its fortieth. Both of the classes are rich in 
tradition, especially 1865, which graduated soon 
after the close of the Civil War. The class num- 
bered 21 at graduation and seven are now living,

namely: Charles Fish of Brunswick, Francis L. 
Hayes of Boston, Melvin J. Hill of Wakefield, 
Mass., Edward J. Millay of Bowdoinham, Joseph 

E. Moore of Thomaston, Moses C. Stone of 
Wellesley, Mass., Henry W. Swasey of Portland. 
The oldest of these is 82. 

The graduates of the class of 1875 numbered 
45 of whom 28 are living, namely : Seth M. Car- 
ter, Auburn ; George C. Cressey, London, Eng- 
land; William J. Center, New York City; Wil-

Wis. There is always a strong effort made to 
bring together at the 40th class reunion every liv- 
ing member, and already the secretary is sending 
out preliminary circulars with that end in view. 



PHI CHI SONGS 
By the kindness of Dr. George W. Hale of 
the class of 1869, the library has recently re- 
ceived copies of the songs composed for the 
initiation of certain members of the classes of 
1869, 1870, 1871, 1872 and 1874 into the Sopho- 
more Society known as Phi Chi. From the in- 
teresting letter that accompanied the gift, the 
following facts have been gathered. The delega- 
tions of the fraternity belonging to the classes of 
1866 and 1867 did not employ any original songs 
for the initiations conducted by them. Rev. 
George M. Bodge '68, recently deceased, com- 
posed for the initiation of members from the 
class of 1869 a song of five stanzas to the then 
popular air of Vive 1' Amour,. The first line is : — 
"Phi Chi comes forth with regal state," and the 
chorus assures all listeners that 

"Her deeds are many, her words are few 
Her sons are jolly, and stanch and true." 
The next years song was written by Edward 
P. Payson '69 to the air "Bonnie Blue Flag" 
and begins with "Old time has clipped the gold- 
en cord that binds another year." The author- 



ship of those for the two succeeding years is not 
known. They were set, respectively, to the music 
of The Prisoners' Hope and Landlord, fill 
your flowing bowl. Then for a year the so- 
ciety was regarded as suppressed. Special inter- 
est centers about the song composed for the 
initiation of a few members rrom 1874, on ac- 
count of its remarkable popularity with succeed- 
ing generations of undergraduates. The mem- 
bers of the fraternity had actually gathered in 
No. 5 Maine Hall when Edward P. Mitchell '71, 
learning that no song had been provided said, 
"If you will wait a few minutes, I will write 
one." The words to the air of "Marching through 
Georgia," now so familiar were composed, in 
hardly more than half an hour, in the midst of all 
confusion incident to the occasion. The follow- 
ing variations between the original as preserved 
by Dr. Hale, and the version printed in the Stu- 
dents' Handbook of 1914-15, are here noted as a 
matter of record. The song begins with There's 
a baby born to Bowdoin 'way back in Sixty 
four Who's thundered etc. etc. The second 
stanza referring to the revival of the society 
reads, 

Swing out the brave old banner, boys, the 
resurrection's come. 

Bring out the horn of plenty, and the old 
ancestral drum : 

Ring out the ponderous hewgag that has 
made Gomorrah hum. 

For Phi Chi's in her ancient glory, etc. 
etc." 
In the third stanza "the Freshman cuts" is re- 
placed in the printed version by "he tries to cut." 
The fourth stanza begins with "Bring forth" 
rather than "Then hush" as in the hand book. 



ALUMNI TEACHING IN COLLEGES 

According to statistics compiled especially for 
the Orient, 75 graduates of Bowdoin are teach- 
ing in colleges, not including law and medical 
schools. They are divided among 44 institutions, 
Harvard and Bowdoin leading with nine and 
followed by Simmons, Princeton, Maine, Colgate, 
Wheaton, Technology, New York University, 
Lehigh, Ohio State, Utah, Chicago, Tufts, Reed 
and Yale with two each. They are teaching 26 
subjects, modern languages engaging the time of 
13, chemistry and English of nine, history of 
seven, mathematics and Greek six each, econom- 
ics and physics five, theology and Latin three and 
forestry .and Semitic languages two each. The 
class of 1905 leads with five members teaching; 
1893, 1897 and 1910 have four each, while there 
are three representatives from 1874, 1889, 1902,

CATALOGUE OF NON-GRADUATES 
It is perhaps not generally known that the 
Boards of Trustees and Overseers have author- 
ized the publication of a catalogue of all former 
students who did not receive degrees from Bow- 
doin, similar in size and content to the Alumni 
Catalogue of 1912. A vast amount of informa- 
tion for use in this has already been collected in 
the library, yet many facts and details are still 
lacking. The compiler, Professor George T. Lit- 
tle, will be grateful for the present post-office ad- 
dresses of non-graduates and especially for the 
names of friends of those deceased who would 
be willing to aid him in attaining the desired 
completeness and accuracy. 



BOWDOIN MEN IN GRADUATE SCHOOLS 
So far as the compiler has been able to ascer- 
tain fifty-nine of Bowdoin's alumni are engaged 
in graduate study. Harvard's graduate schools 
lead the whole field with twenty-five men and 
Maine Medical School follows with fifteen men 
aspiring for M.D.'s. With four other medical 
students, medicine as a profession is at the top 
with nineteen men and law comes second with 
fifteen men. From 1907 to 1914 inclusive there 
is not a class that has not men pursuing graduate 
work. Grouped as regards institutions the names

PRESIDENT ALEY SPEAKS 

President Robert J. Aley of Maine spoke in 
Hubbard Hall last Thursday evening on the op- 
portunities and obligations of college men. It is 
a great thing to be a college man, he said, because 
we are a picked group; because we are in an at- 
mosphere which tends to increase our power ; be- 
cause a college man gains a broader vision of the 
world; and because a college man will always 
have the advantage of wide, permanent and inti-

mate friendships. "What, then," he asked, "are 
some of the consequent obligations ?" The presi- 
dent answered this question by a set of eight car- 
dinal obligations of the college man : to be for all 
his life a learner; to cultivate a proper perspec- 
tive of life ; to keep in touch with the new forms 
that old things take; to free himself from all 
prejudice; to be possessed with great patience; 
not to take himself too seriously; to see the 
humor as well as the tragedy of life; to measure 
up to the best possible ethical, moral and relig- 
ious standards. He concluded by urging his lis- 
teners to realize these obligations, if they would 
increase their usefulness in the world. 



STACKPOLE '00 IN WAR 

News has been recived that Everett B. Stack- 
pole 'oo has enlisted in a Canadian militia regi- 
ment and from that was transferred to the 30th 
Battalion, C. E. F. , a unit organized for the 
second Canadian contingent. Only recently he, 
with 124 others, was picked to go to Europe be- 
fore the rest and it is understood that they have 
set sail and will be attached to the Princess 
Patricia light infantry, a regiment of which many 
have heard. 

After graduation Mr. Stackpole pursued grad- 
uate study at Harvard for a year and at Colum- 
bia from 1901 to 1904 receiving an A.M. degree 
from that institution in 1902. Since 1907 he 
has been engaged in the practice of law at Seattle, 
Wash. 



GENEROUS AID FOR HIWALE 

The results of the recent campaign for Hiwale 
•were highly satisfactory. The amount of cash 
already received is $258.30, but there has been 
enough more pledged to bring it up to $357.80. 
Of the amount received, $121 was from alumni 
and others, $90.80 from the students, $46 from 
the faculty and sixty cents from an unknown 
source. His class, 1909, has pledged $50. 

The alumni contributed very generously, and 
-many of them spoke in a very appreciative man- 
ner of Hiwale, as they knew him in College. 
There were many contributions, some of them 
good-sized, from men who are not connected 
with the College but have heard of Hiwale's 
good work. 

The contributions received from Bowdoin and 
several other New England colleges support the 
Bowdoin graduate in his missionary work. In 
his field, the Satara district, Hiwale accomplishes 
much. District schools in many places have been 
established and thus the natives are brought in 
contact with Christian culture. A letter from 



Dr. Hume, who is in charge of the missionary 
work in India, by the American Board, speaks 
very highly of Hiwale. 

A canvass of the College was made last Friday 
night, to see those men who were not reached 
the first time. The accounts have been kept in a 
systematic way and a receipt and acknowledge- 
ment has been given every contributor. Churchill 
'16 is chairman 01 the Hiwale committee in 
charge of the work. 



PRAY ENGLISH PRIZE 

It has been announced that the general subject 
for essays for the Pray English Prize will be : — 
"The Spirit of War and the Spirit of Peace in' 
Poetry." This subject or one aspect of it must 
be developed in some specific field selected by the 
student, such as some of the works of Shake- 
speare, Milton, Tennyson, Browning, Alfred 
Noyes, Kipling, Percy Mackaye or some other 
author. Imaginative prose, like that of Carlyle, 
may be chosen if desired. Any student wishing 
to compete should hand Professor Elliott by Mar. 
31 a statement of his chosen field and proposed 
method of treatment. The essay should be at 
least 2,000 words in length and will be due June 1. 

The Pray English Prize is an annual prize of 
$45.00, given by Dr. Thomas J. W. Pray '44 of 
Dover, N. H. 



LECTURE BY MR. ORIC BATES 
Those who attended the lecture given by Mr. 
Oric Bates of Harvard, Saturday night, were 
given a great treat and much praise is due the 
Classical Club for procuring such a lecturer. The 
subject was, "The Libyan Desert." Mr. Bates 
opened his lecture by telling many personal anec- 
dotes which were very interesting and gave the 
audience an insight into the character of the peo- 
ple with whom he had to deal. The illustrations 
were excellent and very instructive. Mr. Bates 
brought back to this country with him over a 
hundred skulls found in that region, these he 
presented the Peabody Museum at Harvard. He 
closed his lecture by saying that he was glad to 
be able to speak at his father's college and the 
colles'e where his grandfather had taught.

alumni Department 

'57. — Benjamin Barnes Kingsbury, Esq., for 
thirty-four years a lawyer in Defiance, Ohio, 
died at his home in that city on Jan. 7. Mr. 
Kingsbury was born on May 15, 1837 at Temple, 
N. H., the son of Nathaniel Kingsbury, Medic 
'29, and Lydia (Barnes) Kingsbury. He fitted 
for college at New Ipswich Appleton Academy, 
and while in college became a charter member of 
Theta Delta Chi fraternity. For a year after 
graduation he was tutor in Latin and Greek at 
St. Charles College, St. Charles, Mo., and during 
the following two years was professor of Latin 



and Greek at St. Paul's College, Pajmyra, Mo. 
He received the A.M. degree from Bowdoin in 
i860 and LL.B. from Harvard Law School in 
1862. Mr. Kingsbury was admitted to the prac- 
tice of law in Boston, but infirm health induced 
him to move to San Jose, Cal., where he practiced 
from 1863 to 1865. Returning to St. Charles, 
Mo., he practiced law there from 1865 to 1876, 
being for four years circuit attorney and for 
three years editor of
