Old Main Destroyed by Fire 

Oldest Collese Building Burned on August 27 With Heavy Loss 

FIRE of undetermined origin, discovered before 
dawn on August 27, before nightfall destroyed 
"Old Main", classic Bucknell building, in the 
most disastrous calamity in the history of the Uni- 

The first alarm was turned in before daylight by 
Herbert C. Grice, '18, who was awakened at his 
home on Brown Street by an explosion. The entire 
central unit of "Old Main" was then in flames. The 
fire had evidently been raging for several hours as 
within a few moments and before the local fire com- 
pany could respond to the alarm the entire dome of 
the building crashed into the raging- inferno. Com- 
panies from Milton, Sunbury, and Mifflinburg aided 
in the work of fighting the blaze and protecting East 
and West Colleges. The 
entire central unit of "Old 
Main was completely de- 
stroyed with the first and 
fourth floors of both wings 
badly charred and the en- 
tire roof collapsed b)^ the 
intense heat of the flames. 
The firemen remained on 
duty until late Saturday af- 
ternoon, more than fourteen 
hours after the discovery of 
the fire. 

Many Losses 

The most tragic loss to 
the University in "Old 
Main" was the museum col- 
lection gathered over a per- 
iod of forty years by Pro- 
fessor Nelson F. Davis, '95. 
The entire collection of geological specimens, zoo- 
logical exhibits, and the heterogeneous material of 
the museum was completely destroyed and now lies 
buried under the debris and the crumpled walls. A 
few meteorites and stones may possibl)' be recover- 
ed during the excavation work. 

Office equipment in the wings of the building was 
damaged by heat, smoke and water, and many ma- 
chines, desks, files, etc., ruined. No valuable records 
were lost although some were partially damaged. 
Vaults in the offices of the Registrar and Recorder 
preserved all academic records. These vaults were 
unopened until four days following the disaster but 
all contents were found intact. 

The destruction of "Old Main" caused the loss of 
twelve classrooms including famed Euepia and 
Theta Alpha, Commencement Hall, The Museum, 
and offices of President, Dean, Registrar, Recorder, 
Dean of Freshmen, Summer School and Extension, 
Education, Radio Station W'JBU, Electrical Engi- 
neering Department, Commerce and Finance De- 
partment, Surveying Department, and Superinten- 
dent of Service. Stock rooms for office supplies, bed- 
ding, and all building equipment were hca\ily dam-

aged by both fire and v\'ater. A conservati\-e esti- 
mate ]Tlaces the total fire loss at approximately 
$300,000.00. Insurance was carried to the extent of 


"Old Main" was once known as the "most beauti- 
ful college building in America". It was designed 
by Thomas U. Walter, architect of the dome and 
wings of the Capitol at Washington, D. C. The 
West Wing of the building was erected in 1S50 and 
the central unit in 1857. The facade of the building 
was three hundred and twenty feet including the 
eighty foot square central portion. Each wing housed 
more than fifty students on the three upper tioors. 

The building crowned the 
crest of College Hill and 
faced due North. The se- 
verely squared Grecian 
lines were given additional 
beauty by the four massive 
columns in the front. The 
entire quadrangle side of 
the building was covered 
with ivy vines which lent 
an appearance of age and 
academic dignity. 


Thousands of curious vis- 
itors and many hundreds of 
Alumni were attracted to 
the ruins of the building 
over Sunday and the week 
following the fire. ]\Iany 
witnessed • the demolition 
of the building by wrecking crews. The walls of the 
central unit were pulled down one by one to leave 
a yawning chasm of ruin, still smoking, as this is 
written, more than two weeks after the blaze. The 
decision as to the wings of the building is held up 
pending the report of the insurance adjusters. 
Temporary Quarters 
With less than three weeks from the date of the 
fire to the beginning of Freshman Week and the 
opening of College, officials Avere faced with an im- 
mediate emergenc)'. President Rainey announced 
through the press that College would open as sched- 
uled. Offices were quickly moved into W'est College 
where for the present all administrative work will be 
conducted. Class rooms have been provided in other 
buildings to meet the situation and dormitory rooms 
in East and West Colleges have been "doubled up" 
to care for the incoming class. The ruins of "Old 
Main" have been roped oft' and the quadrangle closed 
to all but pedestrian traffic. 


Many plans for the reconstruction of "Old Main" 
have been adA'anced and more than several archi-

Editor^s Corner 

ANEW epoch in Bucknell affairs 
lies just ahead. "Old Main" will 
become a modern building, fol- 
lowing, we hope, the exterior lines of 
the one dear to all Bucknellians, and 
academic and administrative changes 
are demanded in the exhaustive study 
made public by the survey committee. 
Our growth will be two-fold, external 
and internal. May it be balanced! 

FOOTBALL also enters a new phase 
in the evolution of the great Amer- 
ican game. "No more scholar- 
ships" means different things to differ- 
ent people. This change will have a 
decided bearing upon the newer Buck- 

the first faculty meeting of the 
year on Saturday, September 10. 
The report of the survey committee 
was made public at the meeting. Fac- 
ulty comment is rife as to the when, 
where, why, what, and how of the prac- 
tical application of the many sugges- 
tions and implications. An interesting 
and exciting year is ahead as new 
plans evolve. 

WEIGHT is some indication of 
the strength of a team in foot- 
ball, all other things being- 
equal. Given an even break the Bisons 
this year can hold their own in any 
group of heavyweights. Nine varsity 
men are members of the "200 Pound 
Club" with Judson Ruch as president 
at 240 and Captain Neid as vice-pres- 
ident at 230. Just little fellows! 

THE death of David M. Nesbit, '62, 
on September 8, 1932, at Washing- 
ton, D. C, transfers the title of 
"Senior Alumnus" to Mr. Thomas J. 
Philips, '67, of Atglen. Mr. Nesbit 
was buried in Lewisburg on September 
10. His family for several generations 
has been prominent in the community. 

DEPRESSION notwithstanding, 
the Bucknell enrolment of stu- 
dens keeps up for 1932-33. A 
slight decrease of less than fifty in the 
total student body speaks well for the 
regard in which Bucknell is held by her

HISTORY tells us that the first 
Bucknell football game was with 
Lafayette here in 1883. The last 
game with the Leopards as opponents 
was here in 1929. This season the 
Eastonians have drawn the Homecom- 
ing Date — October 22 at Lewisburg 
as the two teams renew athletic rela- 
tions. It will be a corking good game 
with two stellar teams well matched 
and eager to start the new series of 
games with a victory. Will you be 
here to see it? 

HOMECOMING is October 22 — 
Lafayette plays here — it will 
be a great game — and it is

have not been able to devote much 
space to the plans for the game as 
they are still maturing. Bucknell 
Homecomings are always worth while, 
however, and all we should need to do 
is remind you of the date. See you 
all then!

Alumni President Pangburn '15, Writes 

THOUSANDS of Bucknellians were stunned at 
the news of the loss of "Old ]\Iain". Did they 
realize before what intrinsic value that building 
had, and what its influences have meant in their 
lives ? 

The scar of the burn will remain for some time, 
yet its flames ma}- re-kindle a united effort of the 
students and the alumni which will soon obliterate 
the scar, and as a result Bucknell will be stronger. 

Our University and its new president need the 
immediate and active support of each alumnus and 
Bucknell friend. The record of the next decade at 
Bucknell will depend largely on the support you give 
your Alma Mater. 

I am going to ask each alumnus of Bucknell to 
make a personal inventory of his or her activities 
toward the College during the past ten years. If you 
are satisfied that you do not owe the University 
anything, then the future of Bucknell is at stake. 
Do not allow the 3'ears that have passed since you 
graduated to be a barrier, but lose that feeling by 
an occasional letter to an old friend, securing the 
Alumni IMagazine, an occasional trip to Lewisburg 
to renew old acquaintances there, and Bucknell will 
come very close to you. 

Each alumnus can receive dividends by devoting 
a portion of his time to some form of Bucknell life 
that he or she is particular^ interested in. I know of 
an alumnus who lives two hundred miles from Lew- 
isburg, and he knows each member of the football 
squad by his first name. He finds that his college 
dax's are not past forever, and he states that great 
returns are to be had in his active association with 
Bucknell life. He receives from the boys a renewed 
spirit of loyalty and devotion, not only to his school 
but his countr}', his business associates, and his 

This Fall is an excellent time to renew your Buck- 
nell life. Get acquainted with the students and the 
faculty, and you will have the same feeling to get 
back to the Hill as you did in your college days. 

Take a one-day vacation each week-end, follow 
the football team. Get acquainted with these boys, 
meet the coaches who are training your boys, and if 
their spirit will not give you a severe case of Buck- 
nellitis, then you are immune to any spirit and 
should be in the morgue. This Fall meet Bucknell 
people in Lewisburg, New York, Philadelphia, 
Pittsburgh, Scranton, and Washington, D. C. 

Support the Alumni Fund — it is your financial 
contribution to the needs of the L^niversity. 

Ask yourself one question : Am I a credit to 
Bucknell? Be proud of your school; live so she will 
be proud of you.

An Open Letter on Loyalty 

Minneapolis, Minnesota. 
July 21, 1932. 
Fellow Alumni : 

In one of my letters to my classmates of 1926, last 
spring, I ventured the suggestion that, in addition to 
the material growth of the University, which has 
been especially marked since 1920. Bucknell has built 
up certain intangible assets including what I then re- 
ferred to as a "living endowment.'' It was my con- 
tention that each person accepted into the Univer- 
sity represents an investment, an academic risk, on 
which some kind of return is to be expected. The 
reasonable dividend from such an investment should 
be paid in terms of better living, and in respect for 
and loyalty to the institution. 

I soon had it brought forcefully to m\- attention 
that not all such investments are productive of such 
dividends. One of my classmates who still had 
enough respect for the opinions of others to hide be- 
hind the anonj'mity of a New York post-mark (and 
I can think of nothing more anonymous) promptly 
deplored the beggarly policy of the L^niversity and 
complained bitterly because Bucknell failed to recog- 
nize that every student is a future alumnus and to 
treat him as such during his student days. The fur- 
ther insinuation (and it wasn't too gently made ) was 
that many more like himself either looked with con- 
tempt on Bucknell or were apologetic for the "in- 
feriority" of the institution. Further, the only ones 
who were loyal were a group of specially favored 
"Campus Scavengers." 

I have a strong suspicion that this particular in- 
dividual could have withdrawn from Bucknell if he 
didn't like the atmosphere or the quality of the work 
there, and that the L'niversity might have been able 
to withstand the loss. He didn't. Instead he ap- 
parently resisted suggestions and encouragement to 
go elsewhere. His attitude must have been : "You 
can't put me out but you can't make me like it,'' and 
now apparently is : "The only reason I'm glad to be 
an alumnus of Bucknell is that, as one, I can be more 
of a nuisance to the institution than in an}- other 

Thus far I have given more attention than anv 
one properly should to a writer of anonymous letters. 
I have done so, however, because I want to make 
use of the sentiments he expressed. 

One such person is a crank. Two of them are a 
couple of cranks. But any considerable proportion 
of them in the Alumni body is a matter of concern. 
How many such have we? To what extent are their 
claims against the L'niversity valid? If the L^niver- 
sity is at fault what can be done If the program of 
the University is fundamentally sound, and I believe 
it is, then what can the great body of real Buck- 
nellians do to minimize the eftects of such cantank- 
erous fault-finding? 

I am putting this before the Alumni as a challenge. 
Bucknell is a growing, improving, progressive insti-

President Emeritus Emory W. Hunt plans

the world, stopping for several weeks with his 
daughter Helen, Dean of Women at Judson College, 
Rangoon, during the Christmas season. Dr. Hunt 
will sail from San Francisco on the Dollar Line 

steamship President Hayes on October 24. Cali- 
fornia Alumni plan a reception for him in Los An- 
geles several days before he sails. He will return 
from the East via Egypt and Palestine on the Presi- 
dent Van Buren to Egypt and the President Garfield 
from there to New York to arrive ^larch 14.

tects are preparing plans for the consideration of the 
Board of Trustees. A special meeting of this body 
will be called after the report of the insurance ad- 
justors has been received. President Rainey has re- 
ceived several checks from Alumni to be applied to 
the rebuilding fund. One writer requested a burned 
brick from the ruins as a souvenir. It was duly sent. 
No defmite announcements can be expected within

tution. She is, I believe, performing a worthy service 
both to the individual students and to the society in 
which the)', as Alumni, must work and live. We 
are her sons and daughters. It is up to us to pay our 
dividend of loyalty. 

That doesn't mean merely attending football 
games and concerts, sending in students, supporting 
funds, and putting clauses in wills, although all of 
these are legitimate expressions of loyalty. I believe 
careful, frank, honest criticism, directed to the proper 
authorities is a high expression of loyalty. Defend- 
ing the College from unwarranted attacks by such 
defamers as this one ranks equally high. It is a diffi- 
cult thing to do for seldom do such persons do their 
work openly. 

The challenge, Alumni, is to know more about 
Bucknell : what she is doing and what she aims to 
do ; what her policies and her program are. You can 
be depended upon, then, to make and acknowledge 
the true criticism ; to recognize and refute the false. 
It is a challenge both to your intelligence and to 
your loyalty.

Football Prognostications 

By Arthur L. Brandon, Director of Publicity 

DESPITE the loss of twelve lettermen from the 
unbeaten team of 1931, football prospects at 
Bucknell for the present season are bright. 
Ten lettermen from last year will return, six mem- 
bers of the squad who just missed letters are avail- 
able, and eighteen sophomores come up from a suc- 
cessful freshman team. 

Carl Snavely will start his sixth year as head 
coach. His assistants are Max Reed. '24, j\Ialcolm 
Musser, '19, and Merle Stonebraker, '32. In the five- 
year Snavely regime Bucknell teams have 
won 31 games, tied seven, and lost onlj^ 
ten. The Bisons have scored 871 points 
to their opponents' 297. 

Among the returning lettermen are 
three guards, three backs, two tackles, an 
end, and a center. The whole squad, as 
arranged in spring training, is well bal- 
anced, with an even dozen backs, six ends, 
five or six tackles, eight or nine guards, 
and four centers. 

Edward Xeid, 230-pound tackle and 
captain, from Danville, heads the list of 
old men. At the other tackle is Jack 
Dempsey, another 200-pounder, a product 
of Ridley Park. Newcomers who will be 
tackle candidates are Harry Bergkamp, 
Ridgefield Park: Leslie Berk, a junior, 
from Frackville : Carl Ray, \\'illiamsport ; 
and Judson Ruch, Osceola. 

Much New End Material 

Jack Dornian, a guard last year, is the 
only letterman who is an end candidate. 
The Smithton lad's speed and versatility 
caused Snavel}^ to switch him to end in 
the spring training period and he was an 
immediate success. Especiall}^ promising end ma- 
terial comes from the freshman team with Gene Zan- 
arina, Jeannette, and Leonard Kachel, Newark, N. 
J., heading the list, closely followed by Joe Delaney, 
Ambler, George Berry, Elmira, N. Y., and Andy 
Giermak, Edwardsville. 

The team is better fortified Avith veteran guard 
players than it is in any other department. Owen 
James, Scranton, regular last j^ear, and Henry Seiss, 
Alpha, N. J., and Edwin A¥ood, Haddonfield, N. J., 
first class substitutes and lettermen are back on the 
squad. Leading the new men are George Boiston, 
200-pounder from the Abington high school, Ralph 
Furiell, Rome, N. Y., and Jack Draj^ton, jManchester, 
N. H., James Eraser, Pittsfield, ^lass., and James 
Phillips, a junior from Carthage, N. Y., will offer 
keen competition. 

Strong at Center 

Famed for excellent centers in recent years. Buck- 
nell will again be strong in this position. Nicholas 
Farina, Steelton, a junior, participated in the im- 
portant October and November games a 3'ear ago 
and was never outplayed. Walter Gilleland, Wilk- 

Capt. Edward Neid 

insburg, a capable man last fall is back, as is Michael 
Stranko, St. Clair. George McGaughey, Vander- 
grift, looked like varsity material last season as he 
played with the freshmen. 

Bucknell is going to miss Clark Hinkle at full- 
back ! What team wouldn't? But the work in spring 
training of Charles Peters, Chambersburg, and Joe 
Reznichak, Perth Amboy, N. J., indicates that the 
Bisons are going to have capable line plungers. 
These boys are husky and fast. Raulston More, Sun- 
bur}-- lad, is also a capable fullback. 

Edward MA'ers, York, and George Vet- 
ter, Elmira, join Peters in being the only 
letter backs in College. Hubert A'erhey, 
Ridley Park, John Kubacki, Reading play- 
er, who kicked one of the winning touch- 
down points against Fordham, Joe Cara- 
vaglio, Norwich, N'. Y., speedster, who 
was injured at the beginning of last sea- 
son, and Roland Bean, Creamery, fast de- 
veloping halfback, are the veteran mem- 
bers who \\\\\ be available. 

Joe Rhubright, Tamaqua. is one of the 
best punters and passers to enter Bucknell 
in many seasons. He was a regular on the 
freshman team last season. John Wale- 
sky, Frackville, is probably the fastest 
man on the squad. Harry L. Jenkins, a 

IGermantown boy, is the team's lightest 
candidate, weighing 150 pounds. Harold 
Kenseth, Milton, Mass., junior, is the 
newest backfield candidate. 
If the schedule were an ordinary one 
of four or five major games, it would not 
be foolish to predict that the Bisons would 
go through the season with only one or 
possibly two defeats. But the athletic council has 
picked off a hard list of opponents for a team that 
lost twelve lettermen. Considering the caliber of 
the opposing elevens, the writer believes that Buck- 
nell will have another highly successful season. Each 
alumnus can Avrite his own predictions ! 

Fordham, Temple, and Lafayette will have three 
of the eight really strong teams of the East this year, 
and Bucknell meets them in order in the month of 
October before the juniors and sophomores have had 
enough time to mold themselves into a smooth foot- 
ball machine. But the success of the spring practice 
also leads this writer to predict that the Orange and 
Blue will perform even above average in these three 
big tests. 

The complete schedule in my judgment is as diffi- 
cult as any ever attempted b}- a team at or near the 
class of Bucknell. The preliminary contests with St. 
Thomas and Albright bring to Lewisburg the tough- 
est teams among the secondar}^ elevens in Eastern 
Pennsylvania. Then come the triumvirate already 
mentioned, followed by A'illanova, A'N'estern Mary- 

land, Washington and Jefferson, and Georgetown. 
Just a bunch of setups ! 

Ticket Applications 

Order forms for tickets to all games on the sched- 
ule may be secured from the office of The Graduate 
Manager of Athletics, Lewisburg. Applications will 
be filled in order of receipt. Alumni who desire 
choice seats are advised to request order forms at 
once. Prices and regulations on the sale of all tick- 
ets are furnished with application forms. Order 
forms are not being mailed to all Alumni as hereto- 
fore in order to save expense and avoid duplication. 

Home Game Prices 

General admission to all four home games in The 
Memorial Stadium has been announced by the Ath- 
letic Council as one dollar. All seats will be at this 
low lexel price for the first two games, St. Thomas 
and Albright on September 23, and 30, respectively. 
The Lafayette game. Homecoming, October 22, top 
price \\\\\ be $2.50 with other reserved sections at 
$2.00 and general admission at $1.00. A fifty cent 
top for reserved seats over the general admission 
price will be charged for the Western Maryland 
game on No\'ember 5. Prices on all away from home 
games will be printed on the regular application 



Campus visitors will find the Alumni Office in 
Room Number 119, West College. This large cen- 
tral room was formerly Number 4 and according to 
many reports has a history rich in Bucknell lore. The 
former offices of the Alumni Association in the 
northwest section of the building have been taken 
over by the administrative officers of the College. 
The new quarters are entered from either side door 
of West College. Visitors are alwaj's welcome de- 
spite the crowded conditions caused by the loss of 
office space in "Old Main." 



The Northeastern Penitentiary and the Lewisburg 
Post Office and United States Court Building, Lew- 
isburg's boom centers are both rapidly nearing com- 
pletion. The Penitentiary guards have been on duty 
during the summer months and when interior fit- 
tings are placed the giant structure will be ready to 
receive the first quota of prisoners reported due on 
October 15. Concrete has all been poured for the 
Post Office at Third and Market and carpenters are 
at work finishing the exterior lines. Occupancy is 
scheduled for the first of the year.

4. How may the University most advantageously 
cultivate its relationships with Alumni? 

5. What should be the program in an institution 
of this kind in the field of Fine Arts — in- 
cluding Music, Graphic and Plastic Arts, Dec- 
oration, etc. ?

The Answers 

President Homer P. Rainey, 
Bucknell University, 
Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. 
Dear Sir : 

The discussion which follows is based on a three 
dav visit to Bucknell University and upon an exam- 
ination of nine survey reports prepared by commit- 
tees of the faculty of Bucknell University. 

On the occasion of the visit to Bucknell confer- 
ences were held with a number of faculty commit- 
tees. Individual conferences were held with the 
President of the University, the Dean of the Uni- 
versity, the Comptroller, and with a number of in- 
dividual members of the faculty. A meeting of de- 
partment heads was held for discussion of problems 
treated in the survey reports. An inspection trip 
was made to the University Library and through 
certain other buildings and about the grounds. 

The survey reports prepared by faculty commit- 
tees covered the following matters : 

Personnel, Parts I, II, and III. 
Student Health Service and Sanitation 

Physical Education and Intercollegiate Athletics 
Physical Needs 

There was also available a personal schedule com- 
pleted by each member of the faculty. 

The preparation of these survey reports by fac- 
ulty committees under the leadership of the Presi- 
dent of the University is worthy of the highest com- 
mendation. The problems selected for study are 
fundamental in the life of the institution. They have 
been approached with understanding and courage. 
The treatment is frank and the resulting manuscripts 
not only give a candid exposition of the present con- 
ditions at Bucknell University but the recommenda- 
tions for improvement are worthy of the most ser- 
ious consideration by all who are concerned with 
the future of the institution. Activities of this nature 
are a token of high rnorale in the faculty and evince 
a willingness to join in a cooperative effort to fur- 
ther the cause of higher education in this community. 
I. Continued Study 
The first recommendation to be made arises from 
this successful endeavor of the faculty to stud}^ its 



own problems. It is proposed that this initial effort 
be capitalized and that there be created a continuing 
committee on institutional improvement. In many 
ways higher education is in a transitional condition ; 
the live institution must keep alert to adjust its pro- 
gram to new conditions ; the continuing study by the 
faculty of its problems is essential to healthful 
growth. A definitely recognized agency within the 
institution for such study with some subsidy for in- 
vestigation and research is clearly desirable. 

II. College Organizations 

It is recommended that Bucknell continue to 
maintain a single collegiate organization directly 
under the administration of the president. In an in- 
stitution of the present and probable future size of 
Bucknell University the creation of separate colle- 
giate units within the institution will not merely 
create a needlessly expensive administrative set-up ; 
it will introduce unfortunate cleavages into the in- 
tellectual and social life of the University that will 
aft'ect unfavorably the welfare of the students them- 

III. New Divisions 

It is recommended that the curriculum of the Uni- 
versity be reorganized so as to lessen the present 
excessive departmentalization of the curriculum and 
of the faculty. A divisional organization is recom- 
mended. The scope and character of such an organi- 
zation is a matter for faculty consideration and ac- 
tion, but the feasible divisions would appear to be as 
follows : 

1. Biological sciences 

2. Phj^sical sciences including engineering 

3. Social sciences including psychology and edu- 

4. The humanities including music and other 
fine arts 

The allocation of individual subjects of study to 
divisions should not be over-rigid. Some of the pres- 
ent departments will find difficulty in confining 
themselves to a single division since cross-relations 
are also important. Thus, mathematics while find- 
ing its most natural affiliation with the physical 
sciences has also important affinities with the bio- 
logical sciences and with the social sciences. Like 
conditions prevail as to other subjects. Provision 
will, therefore, be necessary for freedom in crossing 
divisional boundaries both in matters of curricula 
and of personnel. 

The advantages of the suggested divisional or- 
ganization are as follows : 

1. It will simplify administration since it will re- 
place the present 27 departments with four or 
five administrative units. 

2. It will lead to a reorganization of the curri- 
culum, to the elimination of duplicating 
courses and course content, to a conservation 
of faculty time and energy, to a richer and a 
better integrated curriculum for students. 

3. It will facilitate the intellectual and social 
contacts of members of the faculty. 

4. It will render the conditions at Bucknell more 
suitable for advanced work particularly work 
at the graduate level. The inevitable restric- 
tion of numerous departmental offerings at 
the lower levels will conserve resources for 
work at advanced stages of student progress. 

IV. Curriculum Changes 

It is recommended that the work of the first two 
collegiate years be so organized as to emphasize gen- 
eral education and that the work of the upper j^ears 
be organized into curricula of two and three years in 
length leading to the bachelor's and master's degree 
with specialization in the field of major interest. The 
advantages of this arrangement are as follows : 

1. It will provide emphasis upon the completion 
of general education by the end of the sopho- 
more year. 

2. It will make possible a better integration of 
the work in the first two collegiate years with 
the work which students have previously 
taken in the secondary schools, a matter which 
should have careful study by the university. 

3. Specialization will be reserved for more ade- 
quate preparation and greater maturity on the 
part of the students. 

4. The proposed organization would provide a 
satisfactory program for the development of 
work up to the level of the master's degree. 
Bucknell University can provide the condi- 
tions for sound specialization up to this point. 
It is not desirable that it attempt to go bej'ond 
the master's degree at the present time. The 
proposed five year program, that is, two jxars 
general education and three years of special- 
ization, would render possible the type of en- 
gineering education which an institution like 
Bucknell University should seek to promote. 
Engineering degrees would be based upon a 
better general education than is possible un- 
der present arrangements. Adequate oppor- 
tunities for specialization would also be pro- 

V. Fine Arts 

In view of the student clientele of Bucknell Uni- 
versity it would seem desirable to expand the curri- 
cula off'ering in the field of music, and in the plastic, 
graphic, and related fine arts. Such expansion would 
involve a larger and better trained faculty in the 
fields in question. It would also require a more gen- 
erous acceptance of courses in these fields for meet- 
ing the requirements for the University's degrees. 
The improved provision for music and the fine arts 
is recommended. 

VI. Administrative Division 

It is recommended that there be created an ad- 
ministrative division to have charge of all matters 
relating to students excluding from control of this 
division all matters relating to instruction and the 
curriculum. Among the matters to be assigned to 
this division are the following : a. admissions ; b. 
housing and food ; c. health ; d. guidance ; e. meas- 
urement ; f. student activities ; g. personal problems 
of students including financial problems ; h. student 
organization: i. student publications; j. student rec- 
ords ; k. student discipline. 

Such a division would assume most of the obliga- 
tions now devolving upon the offices of the Dean of 
Freshmen, the Registrar, the Dean of the College, 
the Dean of Women, the Director of the Health 
Service, the Director of Religious Work and certain 
faculty committees concerned with student prob- 

for SEPTEMBER, 1932 


Ultimatel}- all of these functions should be assum- 
ed in a single administrative division and be subject 
to the administration direction of a student manage- 
ment office directly responsible to the President of 
the University. The working out of an harmonious 
and effective organization will require considerable 
time and a gradual program of adjustment of func- 
tions and personnel. It may be desirable as a first 
step towards an ultimately satisfactory form of or- 
ganization to assciate into a Committee on Student 
Management the offices and the present administra- 
tion of the functions indicated above. Gradually 
there should be developed a more integrated admin- 
istrative organization than can be provided by this 
initial committee system. 

Care should be taken in the development of this 
student management unit that the information to be 
derived concerning students should be readily avail- 
able to faculty officers and committees concerned 
with curricula and instruction. Between these two 
groups there should be the freest possible exchange 
of information and counsel. 

VII. Summer School 

It is recommended that the summer school be con- 
tinued. Emphasis in the announcement of courses 
should be placed upon those curricular offerings 
which are demanded b}^ the types of students who 
are able to attend college in the summers. In gen- 
eral the summer session should be a self-supporting 
unit of the University. This would mean that for 
the present it would not offer courses which are 
called for by only a small number of students al- 
though a limited offering of advanced courses, if 
demanded by students, should be encouraged. 

It is recommended that the extension work be not 
expanded. There is no apparent great demand for 
extension courses from Bucknell University, and 
conditions for developing a well rounded program of 
extension work are not promising. 

It is not recommended that Bucknell University 
attempt to go on a four quarter system. The demand 
for college work at Bucknell University in the sum- 
mer session is not likely to develop in the near fu- 
ture so as to justify the change from the present se- 
mester system to the four quarter arrangement, 
VIII. Faculty Salaries 

The following recommendations are made in re- 
spect to the faculty : 

1. Faculty salaries should be substantially in- 
creased. The records show that the median salary 
for full professors is $3100. Eighteen of the 32 per- 
sons holding the rank of full professor receive $3100 
or less. No full professor except the Dean of the 
College receives more than $3500. In comparable in- 
stitutions of the best rank average salaries of full 
professors are not less than $4000 and range up- 
wards to $5000, $6000, and $7000 for outstanding in- 

A flat salary increase to all members of the fac- 
ulty to the amount indicated above is not recom- 
mended. The present practice of equal salaries to 
all holding the rank of full professor is not in keep- 
ing with sound administrative policy in higher in- 
stitutions. Extreme care should be exercised in giv- 
ing salary increases so that the really competent 
men should receive recognition. The factors to be 
taken into account in salary increases are: 

a. The amount and character of educational 
training beyond the Bachelor's degree. 

b. The record of productive scholarship as evi- 
denced by scholarly publications and contact 
with learned societies. 

c. The acknowledged competence of an indi- 
vidual as an instructor of college students. 

d. The capacity for cooperative administrative 
service in the institution. 

e. The personal leadership of an individual with 
the students and with colleagues in the fac- 

2. It is recommended that a satisfactory retire- 
ment system be provided. Thirteen members of the 
present faculty are 55 years of age and over. Seven 
of these are sixty or more years of age. The time is 
not far distant when some or all of these men should 
be relieved of their instructional obligations and re- 
tired in a manner consonant with the values of their 
past services and with the dignity of their profession. 

3. It is recommended that great care be given 
to the recruiting and selection of new members of 
the faculty. As in the matter of faculty salary in- 
creases, emphasis should be placed upon adequate 
educational training and upon a record and promise 
of scholarly activities. The foregoing items become 
increasingly important as Bucknell University at- 
tempts to expand its advanced offerings and oppor- 
tunities for graduate students. 

4. It is probably desirable to mcrease the num- 
ber of the teaching staff" whose training has been se- 
cured in institutions other than Bucknell University. 
The present staff contains an undesirable percentage 
of men whose major or only training has been se- 
cured at Bucknell University. 

5. The quality of work at Bucknell Uni\-ersity 
would undoubtedly be improved if the teaching loads 
of members of the faculty were reduced. While the 
present load is apparently no greater than in many 
institutions of similar type, it is in e.xcess of the 
teaching load in a numlDer of the admittedly high 
grade colleges. It is recommended that special stu- 
dies be made of the curricula with a view to reducing 
the number of small classes and the teaching load 
of those members of the faculty who are engaged in 
productive work. It is not recommended that the 
teaching load be uniform for all instructors or all 
departments. It should be possible with a reorgani- 
zed curriculum and with certain readjustments in the 
staff to arrange a median teaching load not to exceed 
12 credit hours ; 10 credit hours is a more desirable 
standard. About this median the range can be con- 
siderable depending upon the amount of preparation 
for instruction required, the nature of the class per- 
iods, the amount of outside work and other related 

IX. Scholarship 

Desirable standards of student scholarship are 
primaril}^ dependent upon high scholarship in the 
faculty. The first step in the improvement of student 
scholarship is the improvement of faculty scholar- 
ship. In addition, however, there are certain supple- 
mentary techniques which may be usefully employ- 
ed. Among these are the following : 

a. The generous public recognition by the facul- 
ty and students of high scholarship among students. 
This can be furthered through the expansion of the 



activities of honor societies, the awarding of honors 
by the facult}^ for excellent scholarship, and by stat- 
ed occasions for the public recognition of superior 
intellectual attainments. 

b. The improvement of college examinations is 
another aid to further scholarship. The use of stand- 
ardized examinations in subject matter fields which 
are used b}' other institutions should provide com- 
parable data by which Bucknell University can view 
its relative accomplishments. The results of such 
examinations, however, should be carefully scrutin- 
ized and not blindly accepted at their face pattern as 
indicating inferiority or superiority in Bucknell stu- 

c. Most collegiate institutions, and this doubt- 
less includes Bucknell, can improve the examina- 
tions which are regularly emploj^ed. A careful and 
considerate use of the general final examination 
should serve to integrate various courses taken by 
students, and should result in a better scholaristic 

d. Institution of honors courses or independent 
study courses for really competent students provid- 
ing large liberty on the part of the students is an- 
other useful method for improving attainments. 

e. A study of the success of Bucknell graduates 
in professional schools and in graduate schools 
would be an indication of the quality of student abil- 
ity and training found at Bucknell. 

It is recommended that the faculty give consid- 
eration to all of the above methods for increasing 
the scholastic attainments of its students and make 
use of such as are adaptable to the local situation. 

X. Athletics 

It is recommended that Bucknell University ac- 
cept and adhere strictly to the recently adopted re- 
quirements of the Association of the Middle States 
and Maryland in reference to intercollegiate athlet- 
ics. This would mean the abolition of athletic schol- 
arships and the subsidizing and recruiting of ath- 
letes. Such action would be in line with current 
trends throughout the country and in the interests 
of the whole body of students. 

It is important that intramural activities serve 
all students, with special concern for those in need 
of particular forms of physical training and that 
these activities be encouraged. It is important that 
the health ser\nce information be made readily avail- 
able to the student counselors. If the student man- 
agement division as suggested under \' above is 
adopted this result would follow. 

XI. Financial 

It is recommended that the financial and account- 
ing system developed by the President of the Uni- 
versity and. the Comptroller be adopted and put into 
practice. Such a system is an absolute essential to 
an effective management of the institution. 

XII Building Program 

It is recommended that the University outline a 
comprehensive building program that will, through a 
period of years, develop for Bucknell a modern and 
adequate plant. A first step in such a program is a 
clarification of the purposes of the University as an 
educational institution. It is necessary in the in- 
terest of a sound educational program that the in- 
stitution define the limited functions which it will 

seek to promote. A\'ith this accomplished it will be 
possible to place emphasis upon fundamental build- 
ing needs and to obviate the expenditure of funds 
upon the construction of less important buildings 
which not only fail to meet the most pressing in- 
stitutional needs but which tend to distort the sound 
pattern of institutional growth. 

It is recommended that first consideration in refer- 
ence to buildings be given to a new library building. 
The present building is badly located for its satis- 
factory use by all of the students, and it is inade- 
quate in its provision for stack rooms, general read- 
ing rooms and special collections and for administra- 
tive offices. With the construction of a new building 
the present one could be used for class rooms, or for 
the better provision of college offices. Better office 
facilities for the Registrar, Comptroller, the Dean 
and the President of the University are greatly need- 
ed, and should have early consideration by the 

The gymnasium facilities are inadequate and a 
new building is greatly needed. The early construc- 
tion of a new gymnasium building would be in the 
interests of the entire student body.

The death of David ^I. Nesbit, '62. "Senior Alum- 
nus" of Bucknell occurred in Washington, D. C, on 
September 8, 1932. Interment was in the Lewis- 
burg Cemetery on September 10. Representatives 
of the University, Alumni Association, and Phi 
Kappa Psi fraternity were in attendance at the ser- 
vices. Mr. Nesbit was a native of Chillisquaque and 
upon graduation from College entered the Union 

While at Bucknell, Mr. Nesbit was enrolled in the 
"Scientific" course, and graduated with the degree 
of Ph.B. He is a member of Phi Kappa Psi fraterni- 
ty and also a member of Theta Alpha, a' society 
which had, "meetings on Saturday forenoon of each 
week for orations, essays and debates." Each has a 
convenient hall ; and by an arrangement of the Fac- 
ulty, will always have about an equal number of 

Mr. Nesbit held the rank of First Lieutenant in 
the 131st Pennsylvania Volunteers, which he joined 
immediateh' upon leaving College. 

At the end of the war, Mr. Nesbit engaged in his 
chosen occupation, farming. Here he had scope for 
his energies, which later developed into work in be- 
half of the farmer in W'ashington. Occasionally he 
wrote for publication, one of these instances being 
a paper on "The L^plift of the Farmer" which was 
read before the Vansville Farmers' Club on Novem- 
ber 7, 1908. At that time Roosevelt (who was presi- 
dent of the United States) had proposed an Act of 
Congress for the uplift of the farmers. The paper as 
written and read by Mr. Nesbit defends the farmer 
from the attack of "five gentlemen — not one of them 
a farmer." These five men composed a Commission 
on Countr)' Life, which was to tell Roosevelt how 
the uplift was to be accomplished. 

for SEPTEMBER, 1932 





Bucknell University was recently accredited for 
the training of superintendents and principals for 
the public schools of the state. The other accredited 
state institutions are University of Pennsylvania, 
Penn State, Temple University, and the University 
of Pittsburgh. Courses leading to certification as 
county or district superintendent, supervising prin- 
cipal, elementary principal and high school principal 
may be obtained in these institutions. 

The Bucknell department of education will issue 
in October a bulletin on the work of the department. 
This will contain lists of courses acceptable for the 
various certificates, and other pertinent information. 

A new degree, the Master of Science in Educa- 
tion, has been authorized b}' the faculty. This de- 
gree is based on undergraduate preparation equiva- 
lent to that for the degree of Bachelor of Science in 
Education as given at Bucknell. 

Graduate requirements for Master of Arts and 
Master of Science in Education are the same. A 
thesis based on research is required, as well as a final 
oral examination. No specific courses are stipulated 
for the degree, the candidate being required to show 
his competency in the final examination. A maxi- 
mum of six semester hours of the total of thirty 
may be allowed for the thesis. 

Throughout the year the department offers each 
Saturday morning between the hours of eight and 
one o'clock two graduate courses in education. Those 
offered this semester are: 8 to 10, Education 217 — 
Supervision of Instruction; and 10 to 12, Education 
313, a seminar in education. 

It is expected that President Rainey, who has lec- 
tured the past two summers at the Universit}^ of 
Minnesota, will oft'er courses in educational admin- 
istration at Bucknell next summer. Doctor Rainey 
is the author of a well-known text on the financing 
of public education. 


Sons and daughters of Bucknell men and women 
take their places in the Class of 1936 along with 
more than two hundred and seventy five classmates. 
Registration day saw many proud parents escorting 
the second generation to familiar scenes. Among the 
few parents this wjiter greeted on the campus were 
"Jim" Tyson, '11, and daughter Alice, "Joe" Wood, 
'94, and son "Joe Jr.", "Doc" Goldsmith, '06, and 
daughter Eleanor, C. E. Brockway, '07, and son Ro- 
bert, H. F. Cook, '99, and son Alvin. Other sons and 
daughters of '36 include Ralph Jr., son of Ralph Bel- 
ford, 'OS, John C, son of Oliver J. Decker, '99, John 
Jr., son of John Eisenhauer, '05, Martha, daughter 
of C. F. Shipman, '99, Dan, son of B. W. Griffith, 
'99, Madeline, daughter of David Jessie Park, '10,

Hare Sholl, '10, Charlotte, daughter of Myrtle Walk- 
inshaw Shupe. '09, and Phvllis, daughter of Irving 
A. Timlin, '10. 


Acting upon a recommendation made by the Class 
of 1872 the Board of Trusties approved in June the 
naming of the Academy Building Stephen W. Tay- 
lor Hall in memory of the pioneer president of the 
University at Lewisburg. This structure with ar- 
chitectural lines similar to those of "Old Main" 
was the first structure on College Hill. It was 
erected in 1848, two years after the founding of the 
Universit}^ Here Dr. Taylor graduated the first 
class from The University at Lewisburg in 1851. 
The building has been known as Biology Building 
since the passing of Bucknell Academy in 1916 and 
has been used for classes and laboratories of this 

A sketch of the work of Stephen W. Taylor in 
founding the University is taken from the notes of 
Dr. William C. Bartol, '72, who addressed the Pi Mu 
Epsilon fraternity several years ago on the life of 
this first professor of Mathematics : 

"Stephen W. Taylor was born in Massachusetts 
In l791. He was graduated from Hamilton College 
and was made principal of Lov\'ville Academy, 
N. Y. After a sixteen year tenure of office there 
he was invited to a similar post at the Academy 
at Madison University (now Colgate). He was 
later elevated to the position of Professor of Math- 
ematics and Natural Philosophy in Madison Uni- 
versity. In 1845 he resigned to accept the post of 
"General Agent" for the Northumberland Baptist 
Association in their work leading toward the es- 
tablishment of the University at Lewisburg. His 
immediate work was to raise an endowment of 
$100,000. With the aid of prominent Lewisburg 
families and Philadelphia Baptists he succeeded 
in raising $60,000 in one year and secured a charter 
for the new college from the Legislature. He plan- 
ned and built the building that now bears his name 
and there graduated the first college class in 1851. 
He resigned the same year to accept the presi- 
dency of Madison where he died five years later, 
January 6, 1856." 



More than two hundred and eight}^ five freshmen 
swamped the registration headquarters on College 
Hill on Wednesday, September 7 for the opening 
day of the annual Freshmen Week. A regular pro- 
gram planned in advance was carried out by the fac- 
ulty committee in charge despite the many shifts in 
locations due to the fire. As this is written the week 
comes to a close and the regular opening of College 
is scheduled for the morrow. Registrar H. W. Holt- 
er, '24, predicts a total enrolment in the entire stu- 
dent body in excess of orie thousand. This figure will 
represent a slight decrease as compared to the stu- 
dent body of the past year.

Mr. W. L. Park, '16, is the inventor 
of a new sport which he calls "The 
Game of Dix" and which is fully de- 
scribed in a book of the same name re- 
cently published by the author and 
inventor. The game is an outdoor 
sport designed for colleges, schools and 
independent teams. The playing field 
is 50 by 100 feet and the standard 
soccer ball is used for play.. Goals 
are scored by advancing the ball, using 
any part of the body, and placing it 
through goal posts. The game is a 
combination of soccer, football and 
volleyball. It requires no expensive 
equipment or unusual ability. The in- 
ventor hopes that it will become the 
standard high school, sport as a sub- 
stitute for football, inasmuch as en- 
tire student bodies may take part in 
the game. His book is dedicated to a 
Bucknell comrade in arms, C. O. 
"Dick" Yoder, who died in France in 
1918. Copies of the new book may be 
secured at a nominal price by address- 
ing the author at Montandon, Pa.

Editor^ s Corner 

THE best news of the year is the an- 
nouncement that came from the 
special meeting of the Board of 
Trustees at Homecoming that Jens 
Larson had been retained as Bucknell 
Architect. More about this man and 
the program of development vn\l be 
found in the President's Page — a 
new feature of this issue. 

MR. LARSON has done a master- 
ful piece of work at Dartmouth 
in the development of that 
campus from a sprawling group of un- 
related buildings fifteen years ago to 
one of the most beautiful campuses in 
America today. Bucknell chose ■wisely 
in bringing to Lewisburg one of the 
foremost if not the foremost college 
architect in the country. 

HOMECOMING was great! T"he 
victory over Lafayette was well 
earned and it was a great game. 
There were less than eight thousand 
who were here and among the crowd 
were many alumni. It was not up to 
par as alumni crowds go but what was 
lacking in numbers was made up in 

MANY regrets were expressed at 
the failure of the New York 
Alumni Club to hold their an- 
nual dinner in connection with the 
Fordham game. The parties of the 
past two years were such outstanding- 
successes that the absence of any gath- 
ering this year left an unfulfilled hope 
for many. Alumni Headquai'ters es- 
tablished by The Alumni Council at 
The Hotel Plymouth served as a meet- 
ing place where several hundred drop- 
ped around to say "Howdy" and meet 
eld friends. 

v>'as really just a talk with the 
fellows) before the Philadelphia 
Alumni Club on the eve of the Temple 
Game was a dandy! He sold his hear- 
ers to a man on his ideas of a plan 
for the future of Bucknell. The start- 
ling thing to us about his revelations 
(they really were such) was that he 
had the courage to ask alumni con- 
sideration BEFORE he went to the 
Board of Trustees. The alumni appre- 
ciated his confidence and we were de- 
lighted to see the age old tradition of 
secrecy and mystery which has always 
surrounded any "big doings" shattered 
to bits by this new president who talks 
straight from the shoulder. Bravo! 

ALUMNI golfers at .Homecoming, 
observing a bevy of attractive 
equestrienne co-eds on the "four 
mile" which skirts the golf course, al- 
lowed as how they were graduated 
just a couple of generations too soon.

Entered as second-class matter December 23, 1930 at the post 
oflBce at Lewisburg, Pa., under the Act of August 24, 1912. 

WE publish in another column a 
letter from a Dad to his Fresh- 
man son at Bucknell this year. 
It is not the usual Father to Boy let- 
ter. It is most unusual. We recom- 
mend it to every alumnus. If more 
sons had Dads of this type many prob- 
lems would be solved not only for the 
college but for modern civilization. 

THE passing of "Old Main" has 
brought grief to the hearts of 
many. One alumnus of an earlier 
day writes as follows: "I had hoped 
some day to get back on the campus 
again, but the going of 'Old Main' 
mightily lessens that pull. The last 
time I was there I stood with President 
Hill and we talked of what 'Old Main' 
meant to us. All my college hfe was 
spent in that building. I lived in East 
Wing and every lesson, lecture, and 
recitation was in that one building. A 
better building will take its place but 
it will not be mine. 'Time marches 
on.' " 

THE Bucknell Survey work goes on. 
Committees are about ready to re- 
port more findings to the regular 
faculty meeting next week — just too 
late to make the columns of this issue 
— but watch our next number! We 
understand from our under cover 
agents that fireworks are about to pop 
in the educational world at Bucknell — 
and as far as we can tell they are wel- 
come and much needed pja'otechnics. 
Bring 'em on! 

THE new development program, ar- 
chitecturally speaking, will pre- 
sent many problems to our new 
aj'chitect. A good friend of the college 
told us the other day she could see the 
day approaching when football would 
be played by mail or some other med- 
ium than actual conflict and she want- 
ed to suggest to the architect that he 
design a roof for the stadium to make 
it a giant auditorium so that it could 
be put to some use.

The Survey Goes On 

IN the preceding issue of this magazine we pub- 
lished the first report of the much taU<ed of 
"Bucknell Survey". We also wrote an editorial 
dealing with the findings of the "experts" who made 
sweeping recommendations for changes in the col- 
lege organization. Somehow that editorial never 
got into print, and the original copy has become 
"lost, strayed as stolen". We beg leave to present 
our ideas in this issue, with due apology for tardi- 

The best recommendation made by the surveyors 
was embodied in their initial paragraph asking for 
continued study of our problem. We quote : "It is 
proposed that this initial effort be capitalized and 
that there be created a continuing committee on in- 
stitutional improvement. — A definitely recognized 
agency within the institution for such stud}' with 
some subsidy for investigation and research is clear- 
ly desirable". Agreed ! 

Various committees are at work with President 
Rainey at the present time but their functions are 
limited and no provision has as yet been made for a 
genuine continuing committee as suggested. We 
urge upon the administrative authorities and the 
Board of Trustees the consideration of a plan sug- 
gested in these columns more than three years ago. 
That plan called for an "All College Council" which 
would meet regularly and make recommendations 
on immediate and future development. The proposal 
suggested the personnel of this Council and we have 
yet to hear of a better qualified group to handle the 
problems that are demanding solution. We named 
to this Council the President, Dean, Registrar, Pub- 
licity Director, Health Director, Comptroller, Alum- 
ni Secretary, one local member of the Board of Trus- 
tees, and the President of the Senior Class. Every 
group is represented and every viewpoint on matters 
affecting the welfare of students, faculty, adminis- 
tration, and alumni would be heard in the discus- 
sions of this Council. Is there any existing* agency 
where such complete representation is afforded ev- 
ery integral part of the University? 

Faculty Salary Cut??? 

A campus rumor of an impending salary cut for 
faculty members has come to be the night- 
mare of every member of the teaching staff. 
President Rainey has hinted several times that there 
is a possibility of such a cut. At the same time he 
has made himself clear that such a measure would 
be his last resort to balance the budget. In the face 
of the recommendations of the survey for an IN- 
CREASE in the entire salary scale can the Univer- 
sity afford to slash the meagre incomes of her teach- 

These teachers are flesh and blood to alumni. The)' 
are known and loved. Their welfare is of vital con- 
cern to every alumnus. The alumni will demand the 
facts if the men they revere are to suffer. The sur- 
vey definitely pointed out that Bucknell is "over 

administered". Administrative costs are completely 
out of proportion to faculty salaries and educational 
expenditures. Cannot the necessary paring be done 
at the top? It seems to us that the business, the chief 
business, of the college is teaching — not adminis- 
tration. The faculty should be our first line of de- 
fense and if someone is to be short rationed it should 
be the reserves far behind the lines and not the 
lighters. There must be many changes that can be 
made in the interests of economy long before it be- 
comes necessary to rob the thinly lined pockets of 
our teachers. 

An Actual 1932 Letter— Dad to Son 

September 26, 1932. 
Dear Son : 

Mother and I have just returned from Lewisburg 
after our visit to you, we have talked over the im- 
pressions gained while on the college campus view- 
ing the 3'oung men who passed, the various build- 
ings, and in particular that slain giant of tradition, 
"Old Main". Much thought can be aroused in a per- 
son's mind in a few minutes, especiall)', a person 
who has rubbed elbows with life sufficiently to re- 
alize the value of education as a key to opportunity. 

As I stood before "Old Main" my imagination ran 
riot, I thought of the many young men who lived 
and received their education within this and other 
buildings on the campus, scattered as these men now 
are, some dead ; some old ; some just in their prime 
of life ; some just facing the world ; some who have 
used the knowledge gained as a stepping stone to 
success ; some who have not made the most of their 
opportunities ; some who failed because they did not 
have the foresight to realize that the battle of life 
becomes more specialized and complicated as time 
goes on, they failed to realize that a trained mind, a 
mind supplied with knowledge handed through gen- 
eration after generation, a mind trained to think 
logically, is as important and outstanding' in attain- 
ing success as is the physical skill of the trained 
boxer. Some who overlooked the fact that their 
physical self must be given a square deal as it is the 
custodian of the trained intellect, that any damage 
or neglect of the bodj' places a still greater task on 
the mind in achieving success. 

As you well know that I am not a college grad- 
uate, what little success I have achieved has been 
the result of a continuous battle from the age of 
thirteen up to this day. I firml}' am of the opinion 
that it would be impossible to duplicate mj' success 
were I pitted against college-trained men as would 
be the case today. I intend to continue my battle so 
as to give you the benefit of an education, which 
will pave the way and perhaps be the determining 
factor in any success you may attain. 

Oh, if you bo}'S could be given one of life's battle- 
scarred minds for a few minutes so that as you view 
"Old Main" 3'ou would realize the following: 

That as brick b)' brick properly dovetailed and 
placed first built "Old Main", so must }'ou build and

Building for the Future 

YEARS ago President Harris said that Bucknell 
should not build for a day or a year, but for 
fifty — one hundred years into the future. This 
is a fundamental concept for the building of an 
educational institution. If colleges or universities 
are going to live for centuries, as they surely do, then 
they should be planned for centuries. 

Bucknell is approaching its first century mark. 
It is in a stronger position today, both educationally 
and financially, than it has ever been. It certainly 
is in a position, therefore, to look 
toward the next century with re- 
newed hope and with assurance 
that its sphere of usefulness and 
service will be vastly enlarged. In 
order, therefore, that it may take 
full advantage of its opportunity for 
enlarged service, it should plan 
definitely and wisely for the future. 
The University is standing today 
at one of the most important cross- 
roads of its history. A disastrous 
fire has devastated the most his- 
toric and beloved building on the 
campus. Something must be 
planned to take its place. The prob- 
lem, however, is much larger than 
that of replacing "Old Main". The 
problem is one of planning for our 
entire building program over a long 
period, so that whatever building is done in the im- 
mediate future may be properly related to an evolv- 
ing campus for the future. 

In thinking of this plan for the future there have 
been two ideas uppermost in my mind. In the first 
place, we have one of the most beautiful natural 
campuses in America. Our building plans for the 
future should take full advantage of this opportunity 
to make it as architectually beautiful as possible. 
In the second place, it must be planned to serve 
definite educational ideals. This means that we must 
plan, first of all, an educational program and then 
build architecturally to give that program its fullest 
and richest expression. 

JENS LARSON, Bucknell Architect 

These two plans are being evolved under as care- 
ful supervision and wisdom as can be provided. The 
faculty and administration, through the survey 
which has been made, are trying to build a pro- 
gressive and constructive educational program for 
the future. The Board of Trustees are cooperating 
with the President of the University in planning the 
building and architectural development for the fu- 
ture. The Board has employed Mr. Jens Fredrick 
Larson, architect, of Hanover, New Hampshire, to 
develop a long-time building and 
development program. Mr. Larson 
is the architect who has built the 
"new" Dartmouth College. He has 
given his entire time for the past 
thirteen years to that project. He 
has, in these years at Dartmouth, 
developed one of the most beau- 
tiful college campuses in America. 
He is now to be associated with 
Bucknell indefinitely to render us a 
similar service. His entire time 
will be devoted this first year to 
the development of our general 
])lan. At the end of this year a com- 
])lete miniature model of the future 
campus will be made and placed at 
a conspicuous place on the campus 
so that it may be seen and studied 
by all friends of the University. 
Plans for the first year will also include the building 
of a utility classroom and office building to meet the 
present emergency for classroom space and offices 
for the faculty. It is hoped that this building will 
be ready for use at the opening of school in Sep- 
tember, 1933. 

Space will not permit a further elaboration of 
these plans. I sincerely hope that they will meet 
with general approval among the alumni and entire 
constituency of the LTniversity. I will welcome any 
suggestion or evaluation on these matters from an 
alumnus. I covet your enthusiasm and loyalty for 
a finer and more beautiful Bucknell. 

Faithfully yours, 

Homer P. Rainey. 



(Continued from Page 2) 
dovetail knowledge if you wish to attain the success 
in life that "Old Main" has been as a building. Could 
you but fully realize that "Old Main" in its present 
state, with all its bricks present, but scattered with 
only the lumber missing, can be compared with a 
man who has a scattered knowledge but with some 
important necessity missing. A man in this condi- 
tion is just as useless as "Old JNIain" is today. 

Yes, "Old Main" in all its helplessness can still 
be of service to you young people. Consider how 
this building to beauty, character, and tradition has 
been ruined by fire, just so completely can your char- 
acter and any success of yours be destroyed, either 
by misfortune or improper action on your part. 

No doubt some fire insurance was carried on "Old 
Main," insurance means that foresight was used, 
your education is insurance against the future as well 
as foresight on the part of someone. When "Old 
Main" was built fireproof construction was not yet 
practiced but today where funds are sufficient, fore- 
sight will suggest fireproof buildings. 

If your life at Bucknell teaches you foresight 
alone, you will have made a great stride towards ed- 
ucation because after all an education is knowledge 
associated with foresight. A very successful friend 
of mine whose affairs go along very smoothly, de- 
spite the rough going at present, was told the fol- 
lowing by a party : "I would like to see how you act 
in a jam". To which my friend replied, "I generally 
use foresight and, therefore, seldom get in a jam". 
Yes — son, "Old Main" was a beautiful building 
erected in a wonderful location through foresight 
on the part of someone. 

Remember this, the greater your knowledge the 
greater are your possibilities for accurate foresight. 
Your college uses foresight in its policy of holding 
freshman week to have you become acquainted with 
your classmates and your surroundings. A happy 
contented student is not only more likely to remain 
at school, but, is more apt to make progress in his 
studies. Foresight will tell 3'ou that when 3'ou leave 
Bucknell the important thing will be what you carry 
away in foresight, knowledge, character, manners, 
and physical well-being. 

Bucknell will be pleased to let you go forth to 
take part in the battle of industry, for any success 
you may achieve will be a credit to the institution 
which gave 3'ou the weapons to progress. You in 
turn will no doubt always endeavor to be a credit 
to the spirit of "Old Main". Take another look at 
"Old Main", viewing it from the angle I have given 
you. Yes, it is old, broken, but, still respected for 
the service it has rendered, and, always remember 
you can only obtain the love and respect of people 
by the service you render. I close with a snatch from 
Kipling, which reads : 

"If you can fill each unforgiving minute with 60 
seconds worth of distance run, 
Yours is the earth and everything that's in it and 
what is more you will be a man, my son". 


P. S. — I am pleased to hear that you were among the 
ten highest in the psychology test. 


Rev. George A. Riggs. '07. who has general charge 
of Baptist mission work in Puerto Rico, has written 
home a thrilling description of the hurricane which 
devastated the island October fourth. The struggle 
he and other occupants of his house had to keep the 
storm from breaking into the house and perhaps 
wrecking it is vividly told. The storm began at 

". . . It had begun to beat in on all sides. We 
seemed to be in the midst of a whirl. The atmos- 
pheric pressure changed so rapidly it was hard to 
breathe, and my ears began to snap. The force of 
the wind with a sucking eft'ect began to pull out 
on the shutters of the south windows of the front 
bed-room — and the top catch slipped out. We 
both hung onto the shutter as best we could until 
in an instant of slack I was able to hit the catch 
a blow with the hammer and re-engage it. We 
had already nailed a board on the inside. All this 
time the wind was roaring so that we had to shout 
to be heard ; sheets of zinc, pieces of tile from 
A'illa Roble and other wreckage was banging on 
the roof and against the walls and windows ; and 
water was pouring in torrents. Floors upstairs 
and down were covered with two inches or more 
of water and we were as wet as if we had been in 
a river. . . . Before the danger became so great I 
was a bit nervous, but as the severity of the storm 
increased I had to work and elected to pray. There 
was a perfect calm within. Of course, I knew that 
my life might be crushed out at any moment, and 
thought of that, but it did not especially concern 
me. ... At three a. m. we noted a slight easing 
oft", though zinc and other debris flying through 
the air and banging against the house kept up a 
terrible din. By half past three we decided to lie 
down on our beds and rest a little. . . . The num- 
ber of dead now known has gone beyond the two 
hundred mark. . . . Loss to the churches of the 
mission will run to about $36,000. . . . Ten chapels, 
all small, w-ere completely destroyed and perhaps 
that many more damaged. I know of four mem- 
bers of our churches who were killed". 

Mr. Riggs has been in Puerto Rico ever since his 
graduation from Rochester in 1910. For many years 
now he has full charge of the work. In 1928 he was 
enjoying his furlough in the states when the terrible 
hurricane of that j'car visited the island. He rushed 
to New York and took the first steamer out to help 
in reconstruction, in which he plaj'ed an important 
part. For the past several years Mrs. Riggs, who 
was Margaret Lesher, '07, and the children have re- 
mained in the states. Mr. and Mrs. Riggs attended 
the twenty-fifth reunion of their class at the last 


Fraternity and sororitj' pledging on the campus 
this year ran into high figures. Phi Kappa Psi cap- 
tured honors among the men with twentj^-five 
pledges. Sigma Chi ran second with twenty-two. 
A total of 165 freshmen were pledged to all groups. 
In the sorority field, Delta Delta Delta leads the list 
with sixteen new sisters. Pi Beta Phi followed with 
twelve. A total of fifty-nine girls were pledged to 
all the sororities.

Philadelpliia and Scranton Hold Parties— Western Penna. 
Club Plans Big AFfair at Washington on November 12 

THE Alumni Clubs of Philadelphia and Scran- 
ton were first in the field this season with gath- 
erings in honor of the varsity football team. 
Philadelphia, under the able leadership of President 
H. Frazier Sheffer, '18, and a strong committee head- 
ed by Kenneth W. Slifer, '26, staged one of the best 
smokers held in the City of Brotherly Love in recent 
years. More than one hundred alumni were in at- 
tendance at the Manufacturers and Bankers Club on 
the night of October 13 to hear President Rainey, 
the guest of honor, and see motion pictures of the 
campus exhibited by The Alumni Council. T. Burns 
Drum, Esq., '26, spoke briefly on the duty of every 
alumnus to hold up the hands of the Alumni Council 
in their work of publishing The Bucknell Alumni 
Monthly and managing the affairs of a great body of 
some six thousand alumni. 

Rainey Outlines Plans 

President Ixaincy in addressing an enthusiastic 
audience outlined his hopes and plans for the archi- 
tectural development of the college along modern 
lines. His talk was fully revievi'ed in The Philadel- 
phia Bulletin the following evening. We quote from 
the article written by Cy Peterman : 

"I have a plan I hope to install at Bucknell," he 
said, and one would never guess that this man at 
one time whipped curves across the chests of such 
as Rogers Hornsby, Pete Donohue, "Perfect Game" 
Charlie Robertson and Bib Falk down in the Texas 
League. "A plan that I think is the coming thing 
in American Colleges and LTniversities. I want to 
see more art in our Arts Colleges, a new academic 
prospect which, in our particular case at Bucknell, 
I would have woven in with an architectural plan 
as well." 

According to this new Moses in the educational 
field American Colleges have been for years too 
heavily occupied with things other than the internal 
development of our people : The thrusting out of 
geographical frontiers, the industrial development 
of the nation, its rise to commercial power — all 
these placed a demand upon the educational centers 
that left little time, says Dr. Rainey, for a develop- 
ment of true culture, true art and their apprecia- 

'T think the time has come now to separate our 
professional training from the first four years of 
college life," he went on outlining his hopes for 
Bucknell in this direction. 

Humorously he joshed the "cut system" at our 
colleges, told how Bucknell has abandoned compul- 
sory class attendance in the belief that college stu- 
dents ought to know how and when to attend if they 
would gain knowledge. 

When he had finished half apologetically for tak- 
ing the time every man there realized he is an un- 
usual chap in a college president's chair. 


Prior to the annual Bucknell-Villanova tilt in 
Scranton a luncheon was held by the Scranton Alum- 
ni Group at the Hotel Casey. Part of the crowd of 
alumni, students, and friends, attended in response 
to the announcements for the luncheon which prom- 
ised "No Speeches". The promise was strictly ad- 
hered to. 


Through arrangements perfected by the Bucknell 
Alumni Club of Western Pennsyh-ania with Wash- 
ington and Jefferson College authorities Bucknell 
alumni and guests will share with W. & J. alumni 
in celebration of their Founders Day Banquet at The 
Hotel Washington, Washington, Pa. on Saturday 
evening, November 12, following the Bucknell-W. 
& J. clash in Washington. The price of the dinner 
has been set at $1.00 per plate. President Rainey 
has been invited by President Stewart of W. & J. 
to speak at the Founder's Day Banquet. Following 
the dinner a combined W. & J. -Bucknell Dance will 
be held in the Armory- Pittsburgh alumni leaders 
are enthusiastic over the arrangements and are urg- 
ing as many members of the Western Pennsylvania 
Bucknell Club as possible to attend the game, dinner 
and dance.

ALUMNI DINNER (After the game) 

Alumni Dance (After the Dinner)— ARMORY 


The Bucknell Alumni Club of Berks County held 
a benefit card party on October 4, at the home of 
Mrs. Mary Stanton Speicher, '07, Vice-President of 
the Club. The returns from the party were invested 
in The Berks Count)^ Bucknell Scholarship .Fund. 
Those in charge of the party were Miss Laura 
Smith, '22, Miss Angeline Kissinger, '22, Mrs. 
George Ennis, '27, and the hostess Mrs. Speicher. 

The next regular meeting of the club was held 
the following Monday evening' at the Wyomissing 
Club with President Rainey as guest of honor. He 
outlined his plans and spoke at length on the value 
of the survey to the college in future development. 
Toastmaster for the evening was Dr. Joseph R. 
Wood, '94, who acted in the absence of President 
Howard V. Fisher, '13. 



The Rev. Alvin A. Cober, '96, who has been for 
the past several years pastor of the First Baptist 
Church of Jeannette, retired from the pastorate in 
August, after having had his resignation refused a 
year before. He is now making his home with his 
son. Rev. R. Larue Cober, at 171 Brooks Avenue, 
Rochester, N. Y. 

The natural sorrow at surrendering his life work 
was intensified b}- the death of his beloved wife, 
Frances Kling Cober, on the very day the two had 
planned to leave Jeannette for a period of rest after 
long labors. 

Reared in the Dunkard church, in which he was 
made a minister at the age of 19 years, Alvin Cober 
followed a conviction in transferring' to the Baptist 
Church during his theological training at Lane Sem- 
inary, and was ordained a Baptist minister. After 
serving several pastorates he continued his educa- 
tion by taking the four year course at Bucknell, be- 
ing graduated with the class of 1896. He served 
pastorates at the Neyberry, Pennsylvania Church 
and the Memorial Church of Dayton, Ohio, from the 
latter of which he was called to take up home mis- 
sion work in Puerto Rico. After four years of faith- 
ful labor on this field he was attacked by sprue and 
compelled to return to the United States for treat- 
ment. Even before he was recovered sufficiently to 
take up active work, he was invited back to the 
pastorate of the Dayton church. He returned there 
and served for six years, resigning when he felt his 
mission was ended. He went from there to the First 
Baptist Church of Mt. Gilead, Ohio, but after a 
short pastorate was invited to return to the New- 
berry Memorial Church which he had served imme- 
diately after his graduation from college. He re- 
mained here five years, during a part of which time 
he was on leave for a special mission on the Baptist 
field in Central America. During his stay in New- 
berry he was active in the organization work of the 
Northumberland Association, of which he was mod- 
erator. From Newberry he went to the Jeannette 
church. While there he was instrumental in the 
planning and erection of a new building to replace 
the one destroyed by fire shorth' after his coming to 
the field. 

Last year he offered his resignation, feeling that 
his work was done, but the congregation refused to 
accept it, and urged him to remain another year, at 
the end of which they reluctantly allowed him to 

Mr. Cober has always been gifted in his ability to 
unite and strengthen churches, largely through his 
self-eft'acing and gentle leadership. In 1918 Buck- 
nell recognized his service by conferring on him the 
degree of Doctor of Divinity. Even in his retirement 
he will be active in the work of the Genesee Baptist 
Church of Rochester, of which his son, Larue is pas- 

In all his pastorates Mr. Cober was greatly aided 
by the devoted and sacrifical labors of his wife. She 
took a large part in the organization of Sunday 
Schools and in the general pastoral care. In Jean- 
nette she was among the leaders in the creation of a 

communit}' reading room for the use of students and 
unemployed. Both have left hosts of friends in every 
field on which they have ser\'ed. 

Two of the children of Dr. and Mrs. Cober are 
Bucknell graduates : Vera Cober Rockwell, of the 
class of 1911, now a resident of Lewisburg, and the 
Rev. Kenneth L. Cober, '27, now pastor of the First 
Baptist Church of Canandaigua, N. Y. 


Alfred "Alickey" Boerner, '32, had the unusual 
privilege of a long chat with the aged President von 
Hindenburg during the late summer. I\Ir. Boerner, 
who majored in German and political science at 
Bucknell, besides captaining the boxing team, being 
a contributor to 'Bucknell Verse' and taking an ac- 
tive part in student life generally, received one of the 
coveted fellowships awarded by the Institute of In- 
ternational Education for study in Germany. Leav- 
ing Lewisburg early in July, he spent the summer as 
the guest of a German nobleman at his castle in 
Marienwerdcr, West Prussia. Through his host he 
had the privilege of meeting many of the outstand- 
ing figures in German political and literary life, and 
of seeing at first hand the terrible conditions produc- 
ed by the Treaty of Versailles along the Polish cor- 
ridor. Among others President von Hindenburg was 
introduced to him and engaged him in conversation 
for some time. 

At the beginning of the fall semester Mr. Boerner 
will matriculate at the University of Hamburg, at 
which he will probably remain for the entire year. 
He expects later to travel throughout the other parts 
of Germany, in order to acquaint himself with the 
general social and economic situation in the reich. 


The October meeting of the Lewisburg Alumnae 
Club was held Tuesday evening, October 11 in Lari- 
son Hall. The President Mrs. Helen Egge Kunkel 
presided. After the routine business was finished 
IMiss Carr\r Foresman, chairman of the program 
committee took charge. The Melrose trio sang two 
selections after which representatives of various 
women's clubs of Lewisburg gave splendid talks on 
their local and national projects. The organizations 
with their representatives were : D. A. R., Mrs. Lew- 
is E. Theiss ; Civic Club, Mrs. Miller A. Johnson ; 
Parent Teachers Association, Mr. Philip Harriman; 
American Legion Auxiliary, Miss Jessie Parmer; 
The Eastern Star, Mrs. Frank Zimmerman; The 
Business and Professional \\'omen's Club, Miss 
Edna Moyer. 


Guy Ellsworth, member of the Freshman Class, 
won himself fame before coming to college this Fall, 
with his victory in the National Outboard Motor 
Boat races on the Schuylkill River at Philadelphia. 
He was the winner of the famous Lipton Trophj- for 
amateurs. Fie will retain his amateur standing. His 
home is in Big Moose, N. Y.

Homecoming Victory 

THE twelfth annual Bucknell Homecoming was 
celebrated by a crowd of some eight thousand 
who witnessed a strong Bison gridiron machine 
match touchdowns with a stalwart Lafayette Leop- 
ard in the third quarter of a classic football battle 
and add another to bring the final score to 14-6 
in favor of Bucknell. From a purely technical stand- 
point it was a well played, clean, hard fought foot- 
ball game with the losers threatening to score again 
before the whistle blew. From the average specta- 
tor's point of view it was a thrilling game, exciting, 
replete with tense moments, long passes, great de- 
fensive stands, and to Bucknell followers a glorious 

After a week of steady rain and murky weather, 
Saturday, October 22 dawned with clear skies and 
a brisk football atmosphere. The day was perfect 
to continue the Homecoming record of twelve years 
of fine weather for the "Big Game". 

Four Game Start 

The Bisons entered the Homecoming fray with a 
batting average of .500, having won two games from 
St. Thomas and .Albright and dropping two to Ford- 
ham and Temple. The initial games, played under 
the lights in iMemorial Stadium, were both hard 
fought, tough games. The team, composed largely 
of sophomores, lacking varsity experience, was rated 
by experts as powerful but "green". The Fordham 
game at the Polo Grounds in New York was a rout 
for Bucknell with the heavier and far more able 
Fordham teams (there were three of them) com- 
pletely outclassing a subdued Orange and Blue. 
Cripples from the Albright game numbering six 
varsity men were left at home and their places filled 
by sophomores. Physically beaten by the Fordham 
system of substituting complete teams during the 
first half the Bisons were no match for the Rams in 
the last canto and to save his men Coach Suavely 
withdrew the varsity when the score reached 17-0 
and injected more youngsters into the fray to gain 
experience, regardless of the score which finally 
mounted to 30-0. 

Still bruised and battered the Bison tackled the 
Owl of Temple under the lights in Philadelphia on 
October 14. A scoreless first quarter and then a 
single touchdown by the Owls brought the half time 
score to 6-0. Li the third quarter long passes just 
missed the fingers of Bucknell receivers by inches 
to rob the Orange and Blue of several possible 
scores. The Owl was outplayed completely in this 
stanza but in the fourth quarter an intercepted pass 
and a dazzling run by Johnson of Temple for fifty- 
seven yards and a second score placed the game on 
ice. The final whistle found the score 12-0. 

Bisons Defeat Lafayette 14-6 Before Eight Thousand. 
Review of Season to Date and Future Prospects. 


The victory over Lafayette was decidedly a come- 
back for the Bisons with every man playing heads 
up football to win. Great team play on the defensive 
held Lafayette twice for four downs inside the five 
yard mark to rob them of likely scores. A long pass 
Reznichak to Myers in the third quarter brought 
the first Bucknell score as the fleet "Eddie" snared 
the pigskin on the dead run just past middle field 
and raced to the one yard line where he was forced 
to step out of bounds. On the next play Reznichak, 
sophomore battering ram, crashed over for the score. 
Kubacki kicked goal. Within the space of minutes 
Lafayette executed two similar plays, a long pass 
and a line buck to make their solitary counter. Then 
the Bison came back to life as "Eddie" Myers tore 
through the left side of the line and with perfect 
interference and an able straight arm fought his way 
for sixty-three yards to another score. Kubacki 
again tallied the extra point. This ended the scoring 
but twice the Leopards executed long passes into the 
end score for what seemed to be certain scores. The 
first pass was dropped by the receiver and the sec- 
ond, although caught, was illegal, as the receiver 
was standing with one foot outside the marked off

celebrated the victory at numerous fraternity house 
dances and an All-College dance in Tustin Gymna-

Maryland at Lewisburg will be just another football

games are high hurdles to take without a falter. 


The ever active Bucknell Alumni Association of 
Western Pennsylvania is booming a crowd for the 
W. & J. game at Washington, Pa., on November 
12. Special arrangements have been made for a large 
dinner and dance following the game. President 
Rainey has accepted the invitation of President 
Stewart of Washington and Jeft'erson to speak at 
their Founders Day Exercises. Bucknellians will 
hold a dinner at the Geqrge Washington Hotel and 
attend the alumni dance which follows. The Presi- 
dents are always a strong team and reports indicate 
exceptional strength this year. Orange and Blue 
followers believe that the youngsters on the team 
will have become well seasoned in time for this 
game. It will be well worth seeing from a football

Conference on Education 

Friday and Saturday^ November 18 and 19 

THE seventh annual Conference on Education 
will be held at Bucknell University on Friday 
and Saturday, November 18 and 19. Each year 
beginning in 1926 the committee in charge of the 
conference has succeeded in bringing outstanding- 
talent to the various meetings and this year is no 
exception to the rule. Headliners for the general 
sessions are Dr. Boyd H. Bode of Ohio State Uni- 
versity ; Dr. Frank N. Freeman of Chicago Univer- 
sity; Dr. James N. Rule, Superintendent of Public 
Instruction for Pennsylvania ; and Dr. W. D. Reeve 
of Columbia Universit}^ Doctors Bode and Freeman 
will speak at the two general sessions in the after- 
noon and evening of November 18, and Doctors Rule 
and Reeve are the speakers for the general session 
on Saturday morning, November 19, at eleven 
o'clock. Dr. Bode appears on the secondary school 
program at four o'clock on Friday and Dr. Freeman 
at the elementar)' school program at the same hour. 
On Saturday morning Dr. Reeve is the main speak- 
er at the mathematics section at nine o'clock. 

Some of the prominent educators appearing on the 
section programs are Dr. H. P. Rainey, president of 
Bucknell University ; C. C. Ward, director of teacher 
training for the state of New York; Dr. Lester K. 
,\de. principal of the normal school, New Haven, 
Conn. ; A. O. Roorbach, chairman of the committee 
on the social science curriculum for the state of 
Pennsylvania; Dr. L. H. Dennis, deputy superin- 
tendent of public instruction, Pennsylvania ; W. H. 
Bristow, deputy superintendent of public instruction 
and director of curriculum studies for the state of 
Penns3dvania ; John F. Brougher, assistant director 
of secondar)^ education, Pennsylvania; Dr. Harry R. 
Warfel, assistant professor of English, Bucknell 
University; Dr. C. H. Richardson, head of the de- 
partment of mathematics, Bucknell University. 

The general topic for the meeting is "Education 
for a Changing Social Order." Sectional meetings 
on Friday afternoon at four o'clock are planned for 
those interested in secondary schools, elementary 
schools and teacher training. The Saturday morning 
sessions are in the fields of English, foreign lan- 
guage, mathematics, industrial education, science, 
social science, and religious education. A feature 
which has been attracting attention for the past two 
years is the round table conference for beginning 
teachers. This is an informal meeting where teach- 
ers just entering the profession, or those who have 
had enough experience to begin to be conscious of 
the many problems confronting them, may bring 
their problems to experienced teachers or supervis- 
ors and ask for help on their special problems. This 
round table conference will be held this year at four 
o'clock on Friday. New sections appearing this 
year are those on elementary education and indus- 
trial education. These additions grew out of the 
belief that these two important phases of our edu- 
cational system need attention in this particular 
section of the state. 

The Pennsjdvania Modern Language Association 
and the Susquehanna Valley Secondary Principals' 
Association are holding their annual meetings in 
conjunction with the Bucknell conference. 

The proceedings for the meetings beginning in 
1926 have been printed and it is expected that the 
publication will be continued. All persons interested 
in the problems of education are cordially invited to 
attend the meetings. 

Each year a large number of Bucknell Alumni 
come back for the conference and it is expected that 
this year will show the largest attendance of Buck-

All of us experience a sense of shock and tragedy 
when we hear of the untimely death of a boy or girl, 
a young man or a young woman. How much greater 
the shock is when we stop to consider the number 
of such deaths caused by one single disease, tuber- 
culosis, and how much greater the tragedy when we 
realize that this disease is to a large extent prevent- 

According to our most recent knowledge, the 
germs of tuberculosis find their way into the body 
earl}' in childhood in most cases, where, during the 
grade school period they may develop into what is 
known as the childhood type of tuberculosis. The 
damage at this time is usually slight and notice- 
able signs of illness may be entirely absent. But 
when the stress and strain of adolescence comes, 
there oftentimes comes, too, the chance for the germs 
to bring about actual destruction of the lungs, the 
part of the body most often attacked. It is at this 
time, too, that the disease begins to take its heavy 
death toll in young lives and climbs to first place as 
a destroyer of life, a place it holds through early 
manhood and womanhood and up to the period of 
early middle life. 

Although great strides have been made in bring- 
ing tuberculosis under control and many lives ha\'e 
been saved since the specific cause of the disease 
was discovered, it still takes a toll of close to 90,000 
lives in this country every year. More than half its 
victims are young people between fifteen and forty 
years of age. During the years when tuberculosis 
claims the greatest numbers of girls and young wo- 
men, that is, between the ages of fifteen and thirty, 
almost a third of all deaths are due to this one cause. 
In other words, about one out of every three young

Dr. Charles W. Harvey, who has

thirty years recently presented his 
resignation and announcement of his 
retirement to the International Com- 

women who die during this period of Hfe falls a vic- 
tim to tuberculosis. Among the male sex, at no 
period of life do the tuberculosis deaths quite reach 
this astounding proportion, although in the fifteen 
years between the ages of twenty and thirty-five, 
one out of every five deaths is caused by tuberculo- 

Interest has long been centered on these young 
groups, starting in the schools and in many instances 
extending into business and industry. Because pre- 
vention is comparativel}' easy and sure, and cure 
difficult and uncertain, it is the aim of tuberculosis 
associations to detect in children, through the 
schools, the presence of infection with tuberculosis 
germs, and to encourage the school authorities and 
the parents to keep a close watch over those who 
show suspicious signs. 

Business and industrial concerns, because they 
realize that the health of their employees means dol- 
lars and cents to them, have set up machinery. In 
many cases a permanent medical service with a full- 
time staff of doctors and nurses is maintained as an 
important part of industrial organizations. Others 
have gone even further and maintain vacation and 

rest camps for the benefit of their employees, and 
sometimes private hospitals for the treatment of 
those who fall ill. Other organized groups, such as 
trade unions and professional societies, likewise 
maintain various services, including sanatoria for 
the treatment of tuberculosis. Tuberculosis associa- 
tions have in numerous instances stimulated such 
measures which now exist for the health of indus- 
trial groups. 

There is still much work to be done, however, be- 
fore tuberculosis is reduced, during the period of 
early adulthood to the minor position that it has 
come to occupy in the earliest years of life and in the 
population as a whole. Tuberculosis has been aptly 
termed the "Foe of Youth" and to fight this foe is 
the important work which more than 2,000 affiliated 
tuberculosis associations all over the country carry 
on throughout the year. It is to maintain this work 
and to continue to promote the organization of 
measures that will prevent the untimely death of so 
many thousands of our young people, that the penny 
Christmas seals are sold each year at this time. Each 
year brings improvement and with it the chance for 
a longer, happier life for all of us.

"This ticket and five cents will ad- 
mit you to the 'Happy Hour' for boys 
and girls on Friday nights at seven 
o'clock at the First Baptist Church. 
Beautiful pictures. Stories. Songs. 
Movies. Orchestra. Do not lose this 
ticket. Have it punched each night." 

The foregoing announcement, print- 
ed on a pink piece of cardboard, tells 
the story of the latest move by the 
Rev. Louis J. Velte, A.B, Bucknell, 
'10, A.M., Pennsylvania, '12, B.D., Chi- 
cago, '16, to serve the youth of Ches- 
ter, Pa., where he is pastor of the 
First Baptist Chui-ch at Seventh and 
Fulton Streets. So great has been the 
response to these Happy Hour enter- 
tainments that Mr. Velte now has a 
weekly audience of some 600 children. 
The attendance grows constantly. 

The Bulletin of the Crozer Theo- 
logical Seminary tells about this new 
move to serve the children of Chester. 
"In order to help them grow into hap- 
py useful Christians," says the Bulle- 
tin, "the First Church of Chester has 
opened wide its doors to the boys and 
girls each Friday night in its program 
of community service. These 'Happy 
Hours' are conducted by the pastor 
himself and are run in series of eight 
to ten nights each. Each child is 
given a ticket which is punched each 
night and a treat is given to the chil- 
di-en who have a perfect attendance 
record for the series. Each part of the 
program is brief and varied. These 
two requirements are necessary to se- 
cure and maintain interest. The whole 
pro<!ram from beginning to end is 
desis-ned with the idea of interpreting 
God to the soul of the child."

the Church Interfere?" The conten-

in politics but that the churchman 
should. He presented a plan whereby

way as to make their influence effec- 
tual in the political arena. Mr. Car- 
stater is doing research work in edu-

Jour Alumni Association through the officers, executive committee, and class agents asks the support^ of 

\^ I every alumnus in the various programs that are ahead of the University' and the alumni organizations. The 

alumni whose names appear at the head of this article are your agents, charged with the responsibility of 

conducting the affairs of this great body of alumni. They need and ask for your support. Hold up their 

hands, Bucknellians! The)' are serving you. 

During the year vou will be asked to contribute to The Alumni Fund, you may be asked to serve on 
regional or class committees, and if your class reunes this June yoa 
will receive invitations to take part in a class program. Answer 
these^calls! They are all parts of a great alumni plan of develop- 
ment that is being formulated to go hand in hand with the new Universit)' 
plan which President Rainey explains on the opposite page. The success of 
Bucknell in educational fields and alumni work is largeh' dependent upon 


A definite -program of COiXTINUING ALUMNI EDUCATION is 
now being drafted by your Alumni Association. We hope to interest the 
faculty in a plan which is already at work in several sister institutions where 
alumni as individuals are given advice and encouragement by their former 
teachers in their own particular fields. The University, through the faculty, 
plans to be of real service to her graduates. You will hear more of this plan 
during the coming months. We quote from the creed of a great Universit)- 
to present the whole idea: "We believe that the relations between the alum- 
nus and his University should be beneficial to both, and that mutual assistance 
provided by the graduates and by tlie institution should be limited only by 

their powers of service We believe that to the University' the alumnus 

is a member of a brotherhood bound by the spiritual ties of faith in the ideals 
of education". 

Your support of alumni programs will speed the day when Bucknell 
University shall stand before the world as a beacon light of education, guiding 
the youth of America to a life of rich usefulness to state, community, and 
family. As Bucknell grows so your pride will increase in the institution whose 
stamp of approval you bear. 



Address The Registrar for Information 



THIS special issue of your magazine carries 
Christmas Greetings and Best Wishes for 
the New Year from Bucknell to all Buck- 
nellians. The message of the President tells of 
the new educational developments that are tak- 
ing place on the campus. Our own article at 
the head of this page pleads tor your support 
of alumni programs that are marching in step 
with those for a finer Bucknell. 

THE full worth of the new plan cannot be 
realized within sev.eral years. It is a plan 
for the future. Dean Charles H. Judd of 
the School of Education, University of Chicago, 
in writing to President Rainey expresses his 
faith in the plan as follows: 

I have gone over the program which has 
been adopted by Bucknell as a result of 
the survey made by yourself and the fac- 
ulty. It seems to me chat you have taken 
a very progressive position in the develop- 
ment of this program. I am very greatly 
impressed by the series of survey courses 
that you have decided to give, and it seems 
to me that your program of divisional or- 
ganization, as a substitute for the older 
program of strictly departmental organi- 
zation, has many marked advantages. I 
congratulate you and the faculty on what 
you have accomplished. 

REGISTRAR Henry Walter Holter, '24. is 
charged with a full share of responsibil- 
ity in providing new students next Fall 
when the new program goes into effect. He 
will need the assistance of the alumni. Can you 
recommend exceptional students to Bucknell 
and Bucknell to these students? It is one 
manner of doing Alma Mater a service. Buck- 
nell was recommended to you! Prove your 
faith in her by sending her students. 

"V *»* V V V ** 

AGAIN our personal wishes for happiness 
and cheer in the year ahead. Your many 
■ letters are always welcome. Only 
through your interest can this magazine be 
published. \X''c thank our friends of the past 
and crust that their number may become legion 
in the interests of a newer and finer Bucknell. 
A Right Merry Christmas and a Bright 
New Year!

S .1 result of the recommendations of the Survey 

A of the University which was made last year the 

faculty has made some significant and far 
reaching changes in its academic program. The 
new program is designed to meet certain specific 
educational needs, and is based upon certain 
fundamental educational principles. In the first 
place it is designed to clarify, in so far as pos- 
sible, our present confusion of programs which 
is caused by attempting a multiplicity of func- 
tions. The University, at present, is trying, to 
perform at least four educational functions: 

( 1 ) It is attempting to complete the processes of sec- 
ondary education begun by the secondary schools. 

(2) It is also providing a general or liberal education for 
a portion of the student body. 

(3) It is providing pi"e-professional training in several 

(4) Finally, it is actually offering professional training 
in several fields — particularly in Engineering, the 
training of teachers, and in Commerce and Finance. 

This multiplicity of functions greatly complicates the 
work of the University, and reduces its effectiveness. _It 
has created almost insurmountable curriculum and admin- 
istrative problems. Colleges that ought to be concentrating 
all their meager resources upon their primary function arc 
forced to maintain from three to six pre -professional cur- 
ricula. The new program is organized upon the principle 
of an upper and a lower division corresponding to the last 
two and the first two years, respectively, of college work. 
The attempt has been made to free the first two years, 'n 
so far as possible, of pre-professional and professional work, 
and thus offer our students the opportunities of a broad 
general education in the lower division; and, in turn, the 
last two years are freed entirely for concentration, pre- 
professional, and professional specialization. We believe 
that this organization will be of tremendous value in en- 
riching our program of general education in the first two 
years, and will also make our concentration work much 
more effective, since there will be no interruption in this 
work during the last two years. 

The program for the first two years is built around the 
idea of orientation and is made possible by the use of gen- 
eral or survey courses. The soundness of this idea has been 
demonstrated in a number of institutions. We are con- 
vinced that we have found a method of introducing stu- 
dents to the fields of knowledge which is workable and 
productive of valuable results. The program for the first 
two 3'ears is as follows: 

Freshman Year 
A survey course, The History of Western Man 
A survey of the Natural Sciences — for students not major- 
ing in a Science 

(Astronomy, Geology, Biology, Chemistry, Physics) 
A survey course in Ettroj>ean or World Literature, with 

English Composition for those students ivho need it 
Hygiene, and Art or Music 

(One each semester) 
Physical Education 
Prerequisite — elective subjects 
Academic subjects 

Sophomore Year 

A suriey course in the Evolution of Modern Social instiiu- 

Principles of Economics 
Psychology and Philosophy 
Religion, and Music or Art 

{One each semester) 
Physical Education 
Two prerequisite — elective subjects 

Academic subjects 

Extra Requirement for Graduation 
A reading knowledge of a foreign language. 
{French, German, Latin, Greek or Spanish) 
It should be noted in this program that sufficient time 
has been left in both years for students to begin the pre- 
requisite and pre-professional courses. The new program 
will not in any way hamper or delay a student in beginning 
his pre-professional training in any field. 

In addition to this curricula reorganization, the faculty 
has taken a progressive step in evolving a new entrance pro- 
gram. In place of our present entrance requirements we 
have substituted the following regulation: 

That all applicants for admission to the University shall 
(1) be a high school graduate; (2) be admitted to the 
University on the basis of individual qualifications to do 
university work as indicated by such criteria as high school 
grades, rank in their graduating class, principal's rating, 
intelligence as measured by a good intelligence test, char- 
acter, maturity, and any other pertinent factors; (3) that 
admissions be handled administratively under the super- 
vision of the Registrar. 

A third progressive step was taken by the faculty in 
regular meeting in December when five main divisions of 
courses were created to take the place of the former twenty- 
seven departments. Each of the five main divisions will 
be headed by a director whose duties it shall be to coor- 
dinate the work of the group. The five newly created 
groups are Social Science, Physical Science, Engineering, 
Language, and Religion and Philosophy. 

The University Council, also newly 

created, will assume the work of many 

former standing coinmittees of the 

faculty. The Council is composed of 

the five group heads and members of 

the administration. This Council will 

coordinate the entire plan and work 

of the University. 

Bucknell is pioneering' in 

educational developments. 

The changes effected by the 

foregoing steps are among the 

most comprehensive since th~: 

founding of the Universitv. 

The educational world will 

watch with keen interest the 

unfolding of the future work 

of students at Bucknell.

The Alumni Fund is a plan developed by and for the Alumni, designed to provide finan-

Editor^s Corner 

OBSERVANT readers will notice 
a new cover design on this Jan- 
uary issue of our pride and joy 
(not to mention headache and eternal 
worry). The new dress is in celebra- 
tion of The New Year, The New Plan, 
The New Deal, The New Salary Scale, 
The New Budget, and whatever else 
YOU can think of. 

OUR old cover won a first prize. 
Someone might send us a bou- 
quet on this one but it should 
be one small straw flower as the new 
cover is dictated by necessity. The old 
one was just a bit expensive for these 

tt' I 'HE axe has fallen" is an old 
I expression brought into vogue 
once again. It fell on the 
checks of all on Bucknell's payroll on 
December 1, 1932. Would we were a 
poet to paraphrase the last verse of 
"Casey at the Bat." However, gloom 
soon passes and all are now consoled 
by the thought that the army of the 
unemployed was not increased in size. 

SOMEONE should think up a name 
for The New Plan. We will con- 
duct the contest. All entries must 
be wrapped in cellophane and toasted. 
Four out of five will be chosen after 
government emergency tests have been 
passed with the highest octane rating. 
They will have to be good to get where 
they are going, believe it or not. 

THE Mathewson tragedy in China 
has elicited much sympathy to 
members of the family from fac- 
ulty, students, and townspeople. Young 
Christy is reported recovering slowly 
in the Shanghai Country Hospital. 

SPRING sports eliminated at sev- 
eral institutions was cited as good 
precedent for Bucknell to follow 
by some critics on the campus. The 
Athletic Council moved sanely to cur- 
tail schedules and minimize costs with- 
out sacrificing the sports themselves. 

OUR change in entrance regula- 
tions gives us cause for ap- 
plause. Now a student is admit- 
ted on personal qualifications and abil- 
ity in addition to units of work com- 
pleted. Each case is an individual one 
not regulated by a set of archaic rules.

THE revolutionary program recently adopted by the 
Bucknell University faculty involves three distinct 
changes: (1) separation of the work of the first two 
years from that of the last two; (2) substitution of uni- 
form requirements for all non-engineering students, in 
place of requirements varying with the different courses; 
and (3) arranging the subject-departments into five gen- 
eral groups. 

The first change meets with general approval, and its 
wisdom is undoubted. There has been in the past much 
difficulty in harmonizing and unifying college work, be- 
cause of the fact that some of it is distinctly of the nature 
of that done in the secondary schools. The new division 
makes a clear-cut distinction between the more elementary 
or general work of the first two years and the more con- 
centrated or specialized advanced work of the last two. 
It differentiates between the liberal education of the first 
two years and the pre-professional training of the last two. 
Tlie provision for a general examination as a basis for 
admission to the junior year puts the work of the lower 
division on the basis of attainment instead of upon the 
basis of an accumulation of credits. Eventually this will 
lead to provisions for supei-ior students, enabling them to 
go at their own pace. 

The program of required courses for the first two 
years is excellent in many respects. While the amount of 
■ required work has been reduced, giving the student greater 
freedom of election, the requirements have been broadened. 
For the A.B. course, for instance, a minimum of six hours 
of work in English will be accepted from the average stu- 
dent instead of twelve; sixteen hours of work in religion 
and the social sciences will be required instead of fifteen, 
as at present; requirements in art, hygiene, and music 
have been added; while those in natural science, philosophy, 
psychology, and physical education remain unchanged in 
quantity. The only hour-requirements eliminated are those 
in foreign language and mathematics, an attainment re- 
quirement being substituted in the case of languages. 

The establishment of five groups in place of the old 
subject-departments will undoubtedly facilitate the ad- 
ministration of the new program and should attain the 
other intended objectives. It is particularly suited to the 
work of the first two years. That of the last two years 
will in many cases have to be taken in charge department- 
ally as in the past or by a professor delegated by the group 
chairman. Graduate, work will remain almost necessarily 
in the hands of the subject-departments. There is a possi- 
bility that some of the new groups may prove too large 
or too diverse in subjects for complete supervision by part- 
time chairmen. If too much work has to be delegated back 
to the teachers of the various subjects, the result might be 
practically a maintenance of the status quo ante, with the 
nominal addition of five new executives to our already 
heavy administrative set-up. 

The various engineering courses, now grouped to- 
gether in one group have been unable, because of multi- 
plicity of subjects, to adopt the uniform changes which will 
regulate all other courses. A step in the general direction 
has been taken, however, in arranging all of the first year's 
work on a general plan for all engineering students, what- 
ever particular branch of engineering they intend to major 
in. The work of rearranging the engineer curricula has 

been in the hands of the various professors of engineering. 
In another column will be found more detail about the re- 
arranged courses. It is cheering to note in this connection 
that more time has been allotted for the pursuit of cultural 
subjects by engineering students than heretofore. One 
professor recently stated that he favored the new plan for 
engineers because it afforded the necessary cultural back- 
ground without any sacrifice of technical training. We 
congratulate the engineers on the partial concession which 
they have made to editorial demands for a more compre- 
hensive and less confined curricula. 


To the Editor :- 

Recently I noticed a communication from one of the 
Bucknell fraternities to an alumnus about this year's rush- 
ing. For the moment I forgot when and where I was and 
thought I was reading the account of the battle of the 
Marne. My blood tingled and cold perspiration trickled 
down my noble brow. Here are a few lines of exact quota- 
tion, "which will go some distance in driving home 
to you some idea of the terrific battle the rushing men 
had. Bitterly and savagely the work was carried on by each 
fraternity. Thrown into that turmoil there was nothing 
to do but fight harder than ever " 

I am sorry I could not have been there to witness the 
gigantic struggle from a place of safety but I hope I shall 
be invited to the convocation when the distinguished service 
medals are awarded. What a pity that the men who fought 
in this struggle were not better equipped. They waded in 
empty handed without musket, helmet or machine gun; not 
even a gas mask; and all in the name of brotherhood. May 
I suggest that an alumni committee be appointed to raise 
a fund so that next fall the fratres may not lack armor 
and ammunition to go at this business of brotherhood in 
such a way that our old friend Mars will feel like one of 
the unemployed. 

Sincerely yours, 

"An Ancient Brother." 


ONE of the most thoughtful and sane criticisms of the 
much discussed Laymen's Report on Missions is that 
of Frank Rawlinson, A.B., '99, D.D., '17, in the Chris- 
tian Century for December 28. With enthusiastic approval 
he greets this harbinger of a new day in missions. Some 
striking statements are "That laymen . . . sponsor this 
change is significant. It shows that the challenge to put 
missions on a higher level comes out of the heart and mind 
of Christianity. 'Rethinking Missions' is therefore the call 
of a new leadership in worldwide Christian effort. I wel- 
come it" . . . "For the unwieldy organizations which have 
made Christians falter in their stride, a cooperative Chris- 
tian fellowship is proposed. . . It is a stirring proposal . . . 
If followed through it will tame that rugged individualism 
— religious laissez-faire — which now thwarts Protes- 
tantism" . . . "Conversatism, devoted and tireless though 
its adherents be, must no longer impede the progressive 
forward movement the times demand. The laymen show 
the way out. Let us take it". 

Such words as these, coming from a man who is recog- 
nized as being one of our leading Christian statesmen in 
the mission field, should have great weight with thought- 
ful American Christians.

To All the Alumni o\ Bucknell: 

I take this opportunity at the beginning of the New Year to extend to all 
of you my kindest personal greetings and best wishes for the New Year, and I 
sincerely hope that the New Year may bring to all of us improved economic 
conditions and a new hope for the future. 

There are certain things concerning the work of Bucknell University that I 
should like to bring to your attention. In the last two years we have had a de- 
crease in enrollment of approximately 14 per cent. The income of the University 
has been decreased accordingly. Financial readjustments have had to be made. 
Salaries and wages of the entire organization have been reduced and every other 
possible economy is being made to place the institution on a balanced budget. 

A thorough reorganization of the work of the University has been accom- 
plished and we begin next year on the new program. An outline of these 
changes was given in the last issue of the ALUMNI MONThlLY. There is 
wide interest in our new program from virtually every quarter, which is very en- 
couraging. The Alumni can be of tremendous help to us in the next six or eight 
months if you will tell of the educational values and opportunities offered in this 
new program to your friends and prospective college students. We confidently 
believe that we have an unusually fine educational offering for college students 
and that these values will appeal to prospective college students if they can be 
brought to their attention. Will not each of you, therefore, become a personal 
representative for Bucknell to one or more prospective students during the next 
few months. This type of cooperation will be invaluable to us in promoting our 
new program. The administrative offices of the University will be happy to co- 
operate with you in supplying any detailed information which you may desire. 
You could also render great assistance by forwarding to the Registrar, Mr. h^. W. 
hHolter, the names of any high school graduates that might be interested in 
coming to Bucknell. 

Faithfully yours, 




PROFESSOR Robert L. Sutherland, sociologist, was 
solicited by a number of seniors during 1932 to 
keep them advised by letter during the first several 
years after their graduation of the new developments, 
writings, etc. in the field of sociology. One letter from 
the professor to his former students in November asking 
for information about their coming and goings was an- 
swered unanimously. The task of writing personal letters 
in reply was too great and The Alumni Office entered the 
picture at the request of the professor. 

A sixteen page letter to this group of interested students 
was written by Dr. Sutherland and mimeographed by The 
Alumni Office. The letter contained personal news of all 
who had written in answer to the first letter and para- 
graphs were Mfted from each letter to give a personal 
glimpse of the writer to his classmates. 

Faculty news and gossip, a sketch of the New Plan, 

and personal observations were contained in the letter 
which was mailed at Christmas time to the group. 

Professor Sutherland has chosen to call the letter idea 
a Seminar Plan. It is an elementary manner of continu- 
ing the education of these interested alumni and the growth 
of the idea will be watched with interest. 

The Alumni Office contributed stenographic services 
and mailing facilities in the belief that this group of 
alumni would be appreciative of more news from the college 
than it is possible to present in a general magazine. The 
Plan is personal. It is a definite relationship between pro- 
fessor and student and at the same time between alumnus 
and university. 

Other faculty members are contemplating similar Let- 
ter Contacts with graduates on the suggestion of The 
Alumni Association. We believe that in this manner a 
definite service can be helpful and inspirational to our 
alumni. Write us or your favorite professor if the Plan 
is of interest. 


Clark Hinkle, '32, football player 
extraordinary, and now a member of 
the professional Green Bay (Wiscon- 
sin) Packers eleven, was recently the 
subject of comment by Gordon Mac- 
kay, sports writer and columnist, in 
his well known "Is Zat So" column. 
Friend Mackay's comments have been 
mailed to Lewisburg by a number of 
alumni, among them W. A. Wilkin- 
son, '96, of Haddonfield, N. J. Mr. 
Wilkinson writes:- " — the qualities of 
one of our Bucknell boys who has nev- 
er received proper credit for his foot- 
ball ability". Writer Mackay is quoted 
partially as follows :- 

This reminiscent screed was con- 
ceived after we had read a statement 
by Curly Lambeau that he judged 
Clark Hinkle to be a second Thorpe. 

Curly is an old Notre Dame man, 
the coach of the Green Bay Packers, 
displayed as the greatest football 
eleven in the world, thrice winner of 
the national pro championship and 
now headed for their fourth straight 

Hinkle is another Ohioan. His 
home is in Toronto, Ohio. 

Hinkle for three years was an 
outstanding back in this part of 
the world. He played for Buck- 
nell and played wonderfully. He 
was leading scorer in the East 
one year, was never excelled in 
his performances. Behind a team 
that was never rated with the 
Grand Magogs and the Real Mc- 
Coys, Hinkle sparkled. 
Did they choose Hinkle for the All- 
Ameriean? They did not. They over- 
looked the star of them all, then hi- 
bernating in Lewisburg, Pa. The lat- 
ter town is the seat of Bucknell Uni- 
versity. The experts simply passed 
Hinkle with a perfunctory bow or a 
cursory nod. 

Hinkle now is the spearhead of 
Green Bay's offensive. He does 
everything perfectly, is a triple-threat 
man of Goliath proportions. Against 
the cream of football talent in the 
land, he has performed in such ma- 
jestic fashion that Curly Lambeau 
hails him as a player who is "a sec- 
ond Thorpe." 

So much for that Ail-American 


The Semi-annual meeting of the 
Bucknell Board of Trustees was held 
in Philadelphia during the holidays 
according to custom. The only im- 
portant news to come from the session 
was the creation of a group of twelve 
new scholarships at $1000 each cover- 
ing the full four years of undergrad- 
uate work. Three of these new awards 
will be made to members of the Fresh- 
man Class entering Bucknell this Fall 
and three more each year. 

Mr. Jens Frederic Larson, Universi- 
ty Architect, was in attendance at the 
meeting and presented preliminary 
plans for the future building program. 



A portrait of the late General 
Tasker Howard Bliss, '73, Honorary 
Doctor of Laws 1916, and former Chief 
of Staff of the United States Army, 
was recently presented to The Council 
on Foreign Relations, 45 East Sixty- 
fifth Street, New York, N. Y., by a 
group of his admirers and former com- 
patriots. The presentation of the 
portrait was made by Newton D. 
Baker, former Secretary of War and 
great friend of General Bliss'. Elihu 
Root, Secretary of the Council, ac- 
cepted the memorial. 



The Bucknell Artists Course in con- 
junction with the Departments of Art, 
Music, and Dramatics is sponsoring 
the presentation on February 22 and 
23 of three performances of "Romeo 
and Juliet". The leads will be taken 
by two actors from The Group Theatre 
in New York. The remainder of the 
cast is recruited from the faculty and 
student body of the University. 


Warden Henry C. Hill, former Major 
in the United States Army, and now 
in charge of the new Federal North- 
eastern Penitentiary at Lewisburg 
was the speaker at a meeting of The 
Bucknell Sociological Society recently. 
Warden Hill spoke at length on the 
new theories of penology being used 
as directing forces at the new jail. 
There are more than three hundred 
prisoners at present housed in the 
"Big House" on the hill to the north 
of Lewisburg. 


The Orange and Blue basketball 
season opened with an overwhelming 
defeat for the home team when Wes- 
tern Maryland visited Lewisburg. The 
next two games were in the nature of 
come-backs for the Bisons with a one 
point win over Susquehanna at Sel- 
insgrove and a swamping defeat for 
Washington and Jefferson in Tustin 
Gymnasium. The schedule has been 
cut considerably due to economic con- 
ditions. Varsity material is plentiful 
as the Interfraternity League closed 
prior to the opening of the varsity 
season. Kappa Sigma won from S. A. 
E. to clinch the title in the finals of 
this league. 

for JANUARY, 1933 


REV. Frederick B. Igler, '12, Bap- 
tist Student Pastor at the Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania, was 
chosen by the Buclcnell Y. M. C. A. to 
deliver the annual address at the Fra- 
ternity Pledge Banquet, a new feature 
on the Fall calendar of the organiza- 
tion. We are privileged to quote from 
the excellent address of Rev. Igler: 

The occasion which brings us to- 
gether tonight can be significant in 
college and fraternity life. I am happy 
that your committee asked me to share 
in it with you. Twenty-four years ago 
this fall, I too, like yourselves, was 
pledged to a fraternity on this cam- 
pus, and because of the great contribu- 
tions which fraternity life made to my 
own life, I am exceedingly happy to be 
sharing my thoughts with you. 

My intimate connection with fra- 
ternity life since that year forms the 
basis of what I have to say to you to- 
night. I would far rather sit around 
a fireplace with small groups of you 
men and in a much more informal 
manner than is possible here discuss 
with you these organizations called 
fraternities, which can mean so much 
that is worthwhile and then on the 
other hand, can be so destructive in 
the area of the good life. 

Now while we are rejoicing this 
evening in this occasion which reminds 
us that we have been chosen, picked, 
selected, set apart from our group, we 
ought, too, to be very humble as we 
think of the other members of our 
class who for various reasons are not 
with us. This gathering would be fatal 
to the larger purpose for which we 
have come together if in any sense it 
created within us attitudes of super- 
iority, if in any sense we looked upon 
ourselves as set off against non-fra- 
ternity men. 

I have known recently a University 
man who on his campus was a so- 
called "big shot". He had acquired 
practically all the honors available for 
any one man. He used to speak of his 
fraternity connection in this wise — 
"Our house is here and the other 
houses are there, and between us there 
is a great gulf and chasm, and it is 
only given to a few men in a college 
generation to bridge that chasm". He 
came to commencement time of his 
Senior year, and as he reviewed the 
four years of University life with all 
its so-called honors and achievements, 
he was lamenting the fact that he had 
only two real friends. What else could 
one expect of an attitude which set a 
few men off against the campus ? 

If there is one damning thing which 
can be said against modern American 
college fraternities, it is that they cre- 
ate a spirit of aloofness, build up a 
barrier between those who belong and 
those who do not. Such an attitude if 
not checked is a legitimate charge on 
the part of students who do not belong 
against any college administration. In 
its implications it is against sound 
educational theory and antagonistic lo 
the fundamentals of democracy. 

How would we feel if we had to eat 
in drab boarding houses or commercial 
restaurants and then hoof it back to 
the dormitory room day in and day 
cut? What would be our reaction if 
house parties, dances, and bull sessions 
around the fireplace brightened college 
life for the chosen few but not for us ? 
I am wondering if our fraternities 
have ever worked at the problem of 
holding open house for non-fraternity 
men or of inviting them to meals or 
to our frolics so that the expansive life 
which is ours is frequently shared ? 

A few weeks ago I heard a Senior 
talk to a group of fraternity men in 
just about these words — "We men 
get a great kick out of spending an 
hour or two a week leading under- 
privileged boys in the slum districts 
of our city, thinking we are sharing 
our strength with their weakness, and 
tonight we are getting a great thrill 
out of the possibility of creating social 
consciousness in the dormitories by 
showing pictures of underprivileged 
life. I want to say to you men as I say 
to myself that unless we become 
mightily concerned about the class dis- 

tinctions, the divisions, the attitudes 
of superiority and inferiority which 
we men are creating in our own fra- 
ternity relationships and permitting 
to go unchallenged, we graduate to 
perpetuate the type of philosophy 
which makes slums a natural by-pro- 
duct and settlement houses necessary. 
Then our children's children will go 
through the same process of trying to 
share an hour or two a week with the 
unfortunate people of our city." To 
my way of thinking, this young man 
struck the nail on the head! 

Let us admit tonight in all humility 
that we are not a whit better than men 
of our class who did not join. In the 
years to come you will frequently ask 
yourselves ■ — "How did I get by? 
Why did they choose me?" The meas- 
ure of a man is not his fraternity 
membership ! 

I want to share with you a bit of 
verse that I picked up the other day:- 
"The black shirts of Italy are arro- 
gant and vain. 
The brown shirts of Germany I 

fear I can't explain. 
The red shirts of Russia are rid- 
ing for a fall. 
Then hip-hooray for Gandhi who 
wears no shirt at all!" 
I want to paraphrase it as we think 
of our relationship tonight with the so- 
called non-fraternity world on our own 
campus :- 

Many fraternity men are aiTogant 

and vain. 
Many fraternity men I know I 

simply can't explain. 
Many fraternity men so the pro- 
fessors say are riding for a 
So let's in the spirit of true broth- 
erhood tonight give a hip- 
hooray for the man who 
wears no pin at all! 
I am hoping you will learn through 
your fraternity relationship the art of 

Students and Parents Fill New Women's College Dining Hall 


living together. The world needs 
nothing more right now than to have 
great groups of its citizens learn how 
to live together. 

Our world is a paradox. We are all 
here, necessary to each other, sinking 
or swimming together, and yet we 
have not made much progress in learn- 
ing how to live together. Men and wo- 
men marry, start to build a home and 
trouble ensues because they haven't 
learned how to live together. White 
folks and black folks in so many places 
live in a spirit of constant tension. We 
have our slums and our residential dis- 
tricts and nothing more than a theo- 
retical objection from those on the 
hills. We have the invidious distinc- 
tion of white collar jobs as over a- 
gainst the workers with hand and 
brawn. We tag a man who does not 
agree with our political opinion a red, 
a radical, a bolshevik and urge his ar- 
rest or deportation. Many employers 
say they'll be damned before they will 
recognize the workers' union. 

Internationally it is just the same: 
Germany is having a terrific fight be- 
tween groups which would steer her 
course; France is more heavily armed 
than before the World War; England 
has her hands full with troubles at 
home and also in Ireland and India; 
the Polish corridor is the corridor of 
hate and threatened vengeance; Rus- 
sia is still "the big red bear" which 
strikes terror in the hearts of states- 
men; Mussolini says the way to live 
together is for one man to tell folks 
when they can speak and what they 
ought to say; Japan makes her con- 
tribution in terms of — when you see 
what you want that belongs to your 
neighbor, go take it as she has done 
in Manchuria; China is floundering 
around between civil war lords and 
bandits as she tries to learn the lesson 
of how to live together — thus we 
might continue. Gossip, suspicion, 
hatred, divorce, class warfare, lynch- 
ing, black-lists, strikes, bad names, 
segregation, lockouts, greed, cannon, 
tear gas, submarine, hand grenades, 
trenches, warships, unequal treaties — 
thus runs the record of the way in 
which people today are trying to live 
together. No wonder someone has said 
that "if the universe has a madhouse, 
our world must be it". 

You are saying "how far removed 
all this if from fraternity life". Per- 
mit me to remind you, however, of the 
way in which fraternity chapters treat 
each other in the period of rushing, 
not to mention other seasons of the 
year. What mud can be slung; what 
harsh and unkind statements made; 
what tricks reverted to; what ungen- 

tlemanly conduct engaged in — all in 
the name of brotherhood. Then with- 
in chapters we find cliques based on 
campus politics, religion, and social 
"good times". The gods of brother- 
hood must frequently laugh in deri- 

We will never learn how to live with 
other people until we are able to 
change seats with the other fellow, to 
sit where they sit in sympathetic un- 
derstanding. For fraternity men this 
must mean good sportsmanship, gen- 
tlemanly conduct, a policy of living 
and letting live, a change in the stand- 
ards by which we choose our brothers 
in the bond, the development of a new 
spirit of friendliness between ourselves 
and those who do not belong (non- 
fraternity men); less of the spirit of 
(our chapter has arrived — we are 
it) ; an aggressive attempt to find 
ways and means by which a fraternity 
can serve the interests of education 
based on character for which the Uni- 
versity stands. 

The world has a right to expect our 
colleges to train its men in the art and 
technique of living together. This 
should be the first contribution our 
alma mater makes through its grad- 
uates. The university ought to de- 
mand that our fraternities — special 
houses of privilege — extend them- 
selves in the development of this most 
needed of all the arts. 

Make your fraternity life the 
source of many of the most pleasant 
memories of the future. The poet 
spoke the truth when in saying — 
"come, grow old along with me, the 
best is yet to be, the last of life for 
which the first was made" • — • he meant 
to picture the years ahead as filled 
with adventure and romance. It is 
equally true, however, that with the 
increasing years one lives more and 
more with the memories of the past. 
We are peculiarly made for the events 
of the past which we would forget 
come crowding in upon us when we 
would least be conscious of the same. 
I am suggesting to you that you 
make your four years of college life, 
and especially your fraternity rela- 
tionships, the source and center of the 
sort of wholesome memories which 
when the days come when you sit by 
the fireside with the children at your 
knee, the life of these four years will 
be pleasant to remember. Such mem- 
ories should be the magnet to draw 
men back to the old stamping ground. 
What a source for pleasant, abund- 
ant, expansive memories our fratern- 
ity life could be! If it taught us how 
to be loyal to our group while at the 
same time it showed us the more pri- 
mary loyalty to University and to 

mankind; if it demonstrated in daily 
practice the true meaning of brother- 
hood; if it trained us in the technique 
of living together so that we could 
make a contribution to the world's 
need in this area, then our memories 
of fraternity days and fellowships 
would be the bright spots, the magnets 
which they ought to be and which you 
fellov/s, if you care to do so, can make 



OVER a score of Bucknell alumni 
were in attendance at the dedi- 
cation of the new campus of 
the Colgate-Rochester Divinity School 
at Rochester, N. Y., on October 27 
and 28. 

President Milton G. Evans, '82, was 
one of the speakers at the dedicatory 
exercises. Dr. R. M. West, '89, and 
Professor Leo L. Rockwell, '07, repre- 
sented the University. 

Others who were present included 
Rev. William Golightly, '25, Rev. Don- 
ald Cloward, '23, and Esther Fleming 
Cloward, '22; Rev. David N. Boswell, 
'18; Rev. Philip G. Murray, '29; Dr. 
A. A. Cober, -'96; Rev. Kenneth L. 
Cober, '24 and Clara Price Cober, '25; 
Emma Kunkel Cober, '22; Vera Cober 
Rockwell, '11; Rev. Logan E. Jack- 
son, '13; P. V. Arrow, '28; Rev. Finley 
Keech, '22; Lois Hamblin Wendell, '24; 
Rev. Roland Hudson, '24; Rev. L. L. 
Hutchinson, '23; Idris Jones, '31; C. V. 
Smith, '31; Frank E. Johnston, '28. 

The dedicatory address was given by 
Rev. Harry Emerson Fosdick of the 
Riverside Church, New York City. Dr. 
Fosdick pointed out the crying need 
for trained young ministers to help 
shape the new social order which is in 
the making. The little theater which 
is part of the new equipment was 
dedicated by the presentation of 
Charles Rann Kennedy's play "The 
Servant in the House". 

The Bucknell seal is numbered a- 
mong the seals of some thirty colleges 
which adorn the beautiful Gothic re- 
fectory in which the alumni banquet 
and the luncheon to the academic 
representatives were held. The seals 
represent the colleges from which the 
divinity school has drawn the largest 
number of students. 


Dr. Homer P. Rainey, Bucknell 
President, early in January made a 
ten day tour of Middle Western Col- 
leges gathering material for a survey 
he is conducting for the North Central 
Association of Colleges and Secondary 

for JANUARY, 1933 


AT a special meeting held No- 
vember 16, the faculty of 
Bucknell University took what 
seems to be the most progressive step 
that has been taken in the last ten 
years, though it is in many respects 
but the culmination of the progress 
made during that time. The work of 
the first two years in all except the en- 
gineering courses has been definitely 
separated from that of the last two, 
with provisions for comprehensive ex- 
aminations to be given to determine 
students' fitness to embark upon the 
"concentration program" beginning in 
the junior year after two years of lib- 
eral arts work intended to furnish a 
broad foundation for specialization. 
The amount of required work has been 
considerably reduced, and ample pro- 
vision made in the first two years for 
courses prerequisite to the work for 
the degrees of Bachelor of Arts, and 
Bachelor of Science in Biology, Com- 
merce and Finance, and Education. To 
facilitate the administration of the 
general survey courses planned for the 
first two years, the old subject-depart- 
ments have been arranged in five 

Beginning next fall the program of 
each non-engineering student will in- 
clude the following required courses: 

History of Western Man (three 
hours each semester during the 
freshman year) 

English composition and general lit- 
erature (three to five hours each 
semester during the freshman 

Introduction to natural science 
(three hours each semester during 
the freshman year for students 
not planning to major in a natural 
Evolution of modern social institu- 
tions (four hours the first semes- 
ter of the sophomore year) 
Principles of economics (four hours 
the second semester of the sopho- 
more year) 
Introduction to psychology (three 
hours either first or second se- 
mester of the sophomore year) 
Introduction to philosophy (three 
hours either first or second semes- 
ter of the sophomore year) 
Hygiene (two hours either semester 

of the freshman year) 
Appreciation of Art (two hours 
either semester of either fresh- 
man or sophomore year) 
Appreciation of Music (two hours 
either semester of either fresh- 
man or sophomore year) 
The Religions of the World (two 
hours either semester of the soph- 
omore year) 
Physical Education (one hour each 
semester of freshman and sopho- 
more years) 

No other required courses are speci- 
fied, but before graduation each non- 
engineering student must acquire 
(either in high school or college) a 
reading knowledge of French, German, 
Greek, Latin, or Spanish. The required 
academic work amounts to a minimum 
of forty hours or a maximum of forty- 
four hours. This compares with the 
present requirements ranging from a 
minimum of fifty-one hours in the A.B. 
course to a maximum of sixty-eight 
in the B.S. in Biology course. 

Wider Election 

Besides the required courses, each 
student will be allowed to elect during 
the first two years a total of eighteen 
or more hours of work prerequisite to 
work in his major field. This work 
will normally be in languages or math- 
ematics or both, the student planning 
to major in a natural science being 
allowed to substitute a specific natural 
science for the general introductory 
course. Thus the required work for 
the biological student during the first 
two years will amount to a minimum 
or thirty-four hours, allowing him to 
elect thirty-four hours of work in bi- 
ology, chemistry, foreign languages, 
and mathematics. The commerce and 
finance student will be allowed to elect 
in the first two years from eighteen 
to twenty-eight hours of work in lan- 
guage, mathematics, and economics. 
The elective hours of the student of 
education may be given to that sub- 
ject or to preparation for his major 
work in teaching subjects. The arts 
student will have from eighteen to 
twenty-eight hours of practically free 
elective work in the first two years, 
subject to the approval of the execu- 
tive chairman of the group in which he 
plans to do his major work. 

New Survey Courses 

Of the twelve general introductory 
or survey courses in the program 
adopted, five or six vidll be practically 
new courses. In some cases these will 
be symposium courses, in which the 
lectures will be given by teachers of 
several different subjects, under the 
general direction of the executive 
chairman of a division or another pro- 
fessor especially assigned to the 
course. To facilitate the administra- 
tion of these courses, to provide gen- 
eral supervision of the work in related 
subjects, and to eliminate duplication 
of subject-matter in the off'erings of 
the various departments, the following 
groups have been established: 

(1) English, French, German, Greek, 

Latin, Spanish; 

(2) Economics, education, history, po- 

litical science, sociology 

(3) Astronomy, biology, chemistry, 

geology, mathematics, physics 

(4) Art, music, philosophy, psychol- 

ogy, religion 

(5) Engineering, drawing, surveying 
At the head of each of these groups 
there will be an executive chairman, 
who will be an administrative officer 
devoting only a part of his time to 
teaching. The heads of the groups 
were recently appointed by President 
Rainey as follows :- 

(1) Language Group, Professor H. 

W. Robbins 

(2) Social Science Group, Professor 

R. L. Sutherland 

(3) Natural Science Group, Profes- 

sor F. M. Simpson 

(4) Adaptation Group, Professor 

G. B. Lawson 

(5) Engineering Group, Professor 

S. C. Ogburn Jr. 
To correlate the work of the five groups 
and unify the entire plan a University 
Council has been created. This council 
will meet regularly every two weeks 
and is composed of the President, 
Dean, Dean of Freshmen, Registrar, 
Director of Summer School and Ex- 
tension, Chairman of Advanced Degree 
Committee, and the five group heads. 


Dean R. H. Rivenburg, '97, was re- 
cently elected president of the Eastern 
Association of College Deans and Ad- 
visers of Men at the annual conference 
of the organization at Atlantic City, 
N. J. He succeeds Dean Norman Alex- 
ander of the University of New Hamp- 
shire, retiring president. 

The Dean was also given wide press 
recognition because of an address to 
the Pennsylvania State Education As- 
sociation during the holidays. His ad- 
dress was on the effect of the depres- 
sion on Pennsylvania Schools and Col- 
leges and was replete with statistics 
and charts covering the last several 
years at the institutions covered in his 


Professor Melvin Le Mon, instructor 
in organ, has been selected as the new 
director of the Men's Glee Club of the 
University. Mr. Le Mon is a new addi- 
ton to the faculty. He was formerly 
at Eastman School, Rochester, N. Y. 


A preliminary catalogue for 1933- 
34 for the University has just been 
issued by the office of Registrar H. 
Walter Holier, '24. Copies may be se-

1932 Freshman Squad 

Coach "Mai" Musser, '18, writes own 
account of the work of a Frosh 
Coach and review of season. 

I HAVE been asked to write an ar- 
ticle about Bucknell University 
Freshman Football, and particu- 
larly this season. So I picked up the 
pen and here it is. 

During the first few weeks of Sep- 
tember a group of 45 men trot out on 
the field at the Stadium in answer to 
a call for candidates for the Freshman 
Team. Forty-five men — freshmen — 
fresh from high school and prepara- 
tory school. They have their own 
ideas of the game, with football sys- 
tems instilled in them from their 
former play as varied as their own 

Some people get their greatest 
pleasure from music, others from art. 
I get mine from mixing and working 
with human beings. Here are 45 
young Americans, strong, fresh, 
smart, eager and, in the position of 
coach, you can play on their hearts, 
minds and souls most any tune you 
desire. What an opportunity; what 
power in your hands; and I ask my 
God frequently to direct me to direct 
them, constantly, in the best and high- 
est way. This may sound somewhat 
strange coming from the realm of 
football where roughness and tough- 
ness seemingly predominate but at the 
foot of the raging rapids of emotions 
and actions is the calm deep pool of 
the soul. Under every countenance it 
rests and when you are dealing with 
souls you are dealing with Eternity. 
Can you not see the thrill, the kick, 
the ever changing and interesting 
situations in coaching young men ? 

But let's see, this is to be an article 
about the Frosh Football season. 

I stated there were 45 men report- 
ing for practice. After the first or 
second scrimmage with the Varsity 
the squad dwindles to 25 men, but 

these 25 men usually report faithfully 
to the end of the season. 

It is not long before the first game 
rolls around and what a game that 
first Freshman game is! Generally 
we have 11 quarterbacks on the field 
calling signals in the huddle and there 
is always present in that first game, 
25 captains, 11 on the field, and the 
rest on the bench. You see it is diffi- 
cult for these young men to control 
themselves at the outset. A number 
of them have been quarterbacks and 
captains in high school and prepara- 
tory school days and those "psychol- 
ogy behavior patterns" just must get 
in their work. But this year was un- 
usual in this respect. We had a cap- 
tain and quarterback, "Johnny" Sitar- 
sky, who was a natural leader and led 
the team to its first victory of the 
year over Shenandoah High School 33- 
6. Shenandoah had been defeated only 
twice in three years. 

Western Maryland Frosh were de- 
feated 19-0 in our second game. Our 
men were a little stronger at the fin- 
ish. It was Western Maryland's first 

Stroudsburg State Teachers College 
Frosh were taken into camp 36-0 in 
the next game played. Stroudsburg 
was willing but outweighed. 

Bellefonte Academy was the fourth 
victim in a night game at Williams- 
port. The Frosh started to show real 
speed and power. The score 25-0 was 
a good indication. 

The last and hardest game was the 
annual setto with Wyoming Seminary 
at Kingston. The Frosh stepped out 
to the best victory of the year, 19-7. 

In my humble opinion we had a 
great Freshman quarterback and cap- 
tain in "Johnny" Sitarsky, 200 lbs. of 
speed, football brains and fight. He 
was a greater star than Hinkle in 
Hinkle's freshman year. Don't mis- 
understand me. Sitarsky is not 
Hinkle — he may never be, time only 

will tell. I said in Hinkle's freshman 
year. Sitarsky was uncanny in the 
way he would rally his team around 
him, as a unit, in a pinch, and carry 
them forward with "the old fight". 

This team was an offensive team. 
They wanted to receive when wanning 
the toss at the start of the game. They 
desired to get their hands on the ball. 
They had confidence in their offense. 
Their keenest delight was to open 
holes in the opponent's line and run 
with that ball. When they made one 
touchdown they wanted two. When 
they achieved two they worked for 
three, etc., they never let up. 

Their cooperation and spirit were 
commendable. I received my biggest 
thrill of the season Thanksgiving Day 
when with the score 13-7 and Wyom- 
ing Seminary coming strong, being at 
this point of the game encouraged by 
a touchdown, the Frosh received the 
ball and walked over, under and 
through the opponents for another 
score. As is always expected of the 
play of a Freshman team this 1932 
club improved with each game. 

I have been asked how a Freshman 
team is developed, handled and train- 
ed. Here is my answer summarized 
in six points: 

(1) — Tell them what you expect of 
them in their actions on the trips, in 
the dressing room and on the field of 

(2) — Attempt to teach them the 
two most important fundamentals of 
football, blocking and tackling. 

(3) — Get general and throw them a 

(4) — Get technical and teach them 
Coach Snavely's football plays; when 
and how each man blocks and runs on 
every play. 

(5) — Give them a talk on spirit, 
Bucknell tradition, and history. 

(6) — Before every game; "Play the 
game hard, to the end, and always 
play it clean" is put in the form of a 
petition to our Maker — and Presto- 
Chango — the result — A FOOT- 


The revised college curriculum which 
has been called "The New Plan" for 
want of a better name has attracted 
wide interest as a result of newspaper 
publicity accorded the changes during 
the holidays. Letters are deluging the 
office of Registrar H. W. Holter, '24, 
from prospective students seeking 
more information on entrance condi- 
tions and the practical aspects of the 

for JANUARY, 1933 


THE objectives of the engineering 
courses are to direct the student 
in the studies of the principles 
and methods of engineering and to 
those elements of liberal culture which 
serve to fit him for a worthy place in 
society and to enrich his personal life. 
The curricula, therefore, are directed 
to these ends, and are distributed over 
four years and one summer session. 

The work of the first two years is 
largely devoted to the study of funda- 
mental tool subjects which form the 
basis for the professional courses 
given during the last two years of his 
program; and, to the pursuit of those 
studies which broaden his cultural 
background. The first year's work is 
the same for all engineering students. 
It includes chemistry, drawing, and 
mathematics together with the fresh- 
man survey courses in English litera- 
ture and the History of Western Man. 
The second year is devoted to the com- 
mon preparation courses in physics, 
mathematics, mechanics; to specific 
preparation courses for the engineer- 
ing curricula selected; and, to the 
sophomore survey courses in the Prin- 
ciples of Economics and the Evolution 
of Modern Social Institutions. 

The summer session for chemical en- 
gineers is given between the junior and 
senior years at which time the course 
in unit operations and the principles 
of chemical engineering is given. For 
each of the other engineering groups 
the summer session is given between 
the sophomore and junior years. At 
this time the civil engineers take field 
work in surveying; and the electrical 

and mechanical engineers take direct 
current machinery and machine shop. 

The last two years consists prin- 
cipally of professional subject matter 
given in the respective groups, to- 
gether with elective coui'ses which 
may be taken either in fields related 
to their major line of study or to such 
subjects as psychology, philosophy or 
political science, or both. The pro- 
fessional work is designed to instruct 
the student in the principles and prac- 
tices of the engineering group con- 
cerned so that the graduate may be 
qualified to enter the industrial activ- 
ities usually pursued by that profes- 
sion, or to enter upon a graduate pro- 

Detailed information concerning the 
curriculum and laboratory facilities of 
each of the engineering groups may be 
obtained from the Engineering Bulle- 
tin or the Annual Catalogue. 
Semester Hours 

Each candidate for the degree of 
Bachelor of Science in chemical, civil, 
electrical or mechanical engineering is 
required to complete one hundred and 
forty-two semester hours, not includ- 
ing physical education which is re- 
quired of all students during the fresh- 
man and sophomore years. 

Quality Credits 

Each candidate for the degree .if 
Bachelor of Science must secure at 
least one hundred twenty quality cred- 
its. Three quality credits are given 
for each semester hour graded A, two 
for each hour graded B, and one for 
each hour graded C. 


Harry Herman Angel, '19, Bucknell 
Electrical Engineer, returned to the 
campus in December to talk to em- 
bryo engineers about his experiences 
in Russia during a sixteen month con- 
tract there as a specialist of The In- 
ternational General Electric Company. 
Engineer Angel was employed on the 
giant Dnieprostroy Power Plant pro- 
ject. His talk included references to 
Soviet technical practices and the con- 
tribution made by American engineers 
in the building of the Russian plants 
at Dnieprostroy and Kuznetsk, Siberia. 


Early in January Professor Henry 
Thomas Colestock, '96, was forced by 
illness to give up his classes. An an- 
nouncement by the Dean indicated that 
several months of rest would be neces- 
sary before Professor Colestock could 
resume his activities. Substitute in- 
structors have been arranged for to 
conduct the professor's classes for the 
second semester. 


Early in December the combined 
musical organizations of the Univer- 
sity presented the Bach Christmas 
Oratorio on two successive evenings 
to capacity crowds at the Lewisburg 
Baptist Church. The musical festival 
was conducted by Professor Paul Gies 
of the Department of Music. Guest 
soloist was Harold Giffin of the East- 
man School, Rochester, N. Y. 


The last term of United States 
Court for the Middle District of Penn- 
sylvania to be held in the old Union 
County Court House at Lewisburg is 
in session as this is written. The new 
home of the court. The Lewisburg 
Federal Building and Post Office, is 
expected to be completed in time for 
the Fall term. Judge Albert W. John- 
son, '96, was on the bench. Another 
Bucknellian, Herman P. Reich, Esq., 
'17, Assistant United States Attorney, 
was in charge of several important 
cases for the government being tried 
by the court. W. N. C. Marsh, Esq., 
'03, United States Commissioner, was 
also in evidence during the court term. 


THE Bucknell Department of Edu- 
cation and the Bucknell Teacher 
Placement Bureau are cooperat- 
ing at the present time in the prepara- 
tion of material designed to aid grad- 
uates in securing teaching positions. 
A special bulletin about Bucknell 
courses in Education has been prepar- 
ed and is available on request. 

The present Senior Class numbers 
among its members some thirty-six 
who are preparing to teach. All will 
be completely certified upon gradua- 
tion in June in the various fields of 
their choice. Professor Frank G. Davis, 
Department Head has characterized 
this year's class as one of the best in 

years in ability. June graduates in 
Education in the various fields are 
grouped as follows: 

English '. . 12 

History and Social Science 9 

French 5 

Mathematics 4 

Biology 3 

Latin 2 

Elementary 1 

Alumni in executive positions are 
urged to consider Bucknell graduates 
for possible vacancies in teaching po- 
sitions. In addition to the new class 
each year the Teacher Placement Bu- 
reau has a complete file of experienced 
men and women available for posi- 




Names Make News^^ 

The following list of Bucknellians were those who during 1932 gave evidence of their support of the policy of 
The General Alumni Association to aid worthy students to their degrees via The Bucknell Alumni Loan Fund. The 
list is arranged by classes. These alumni have helped to make more loyal sons and daughters of Bucknell in the 
persons of those who were assisted with loans made possible by the many small alumni gifts to this great cause. 
These Bucknell names made real Bucknell news for 1932. 

If your name is here keep it here for 1933 — if it is not — why be a delinquent? The 1933 Alumni Fund is on 
the way. You will hear more later from your own Class Agent. Express your faith in Bucknell through The Alumni

NEWS of the death of Mrs. 
Christy Mathewson, Jr., in an 
aeroplane crash outside Shang- 
hai, China on January 7, 1933 was a 
distinct shock to many Bucknellians. 
Christy Mathewson, Jr., '27, former 
lieutenant in the United States Army 
Air Corps was an aviation instructor 
for the National Government of the 
Republic of China stationed at the Na- 
tional Air School at Hangchow. His 
bride of two weeks, the former Miss 
Margaret Phillips of Philadelphia had 
journeyed to China with Mrs. Christy 
Mathewson, Sr., arriving in Shanghai 
on December 24, 1932. The wedding 
of the young couple took place on 
Christmas Day in Shanghai. After a 
two weeks' honeymoon they were tak- 
ing off for Hangchow from the river 
in a giant twin motored amphibian 
plane loaned them by Mr. T. Y. Soong, 
Finance Minister of the Chinese Re- 
public. The crash occurred on the 
muddy bank of the river a few seconds 
after the take off and before the ship 
had gained fifty feet altitude. An in- 
quiry is being made into the cause of 
the accident. Officials suspect that the 
ship had been tampered with. It is 
understood from press dispatches that 
Lieutenant Mathewson was being 
groomed as a Special Pilot for Gen- 
eral Chiang Ki Chek because of the 
recent resignation of Eddie Smith, 
famous pilot. 

Lieutenant Mathewson was severe- 
ly injured in the crash, suffering a 
broken leg, two broken arms, and in- 
ternal injuries. Reports on his condi- 
tion at this time ai-e meagre but doc- 
tors at the Shanghai Country Hospital 
where he was taken expressed hope 
for his recovery after a long hospit- 
ilization. Mrs. Mathewson, Sr., re- 
mained in China visiting friends after 
the wedding and is now with her in- 
jured son. The body of the bride was 
shipped to the home of her mother in 
Philadelphia for burial. 


Earl S. Dunlap, '24, is the author of 
an article "Well Scoured Fabrics 
Lighten Burden of The Knit Goods 
Dyer" appearing in the January, 1933 
issue of "Textile World." Mr. Dunlap 
is a chemist vrith the Waynesboro 
Knitting Company in charge of bleach- 
ing and dyeing. 


Dr. Heber W. Youngken, '09, Pro- 
fessor of Materia Medica in the Massa- 
chusetts College of Pharmacy is the 
author of an article entitled "Seventy- 
five Years of Progress in Materia 
Medica" which appeared in the De- 
cember, 1932 issue of The Druggists 
Circular. The article deals with 
changes in the profession due to Fed- 
eral Regulation, new drugs, new ap- 
plications of old drugs and the entire 
field of medicine. It is a scholarly 
treatise on development in this field. 


Conceived in Liberty: A Series of 
Essays on Vocational Education. By 
Gilbert Perez, Superintendent of 
Vocational Education, Bureau of 
Education, Philippines. Philippine 
Education Co., Inc., Manila, 1932. 
This latest sheaf of essays from the 
pen of Gilbert Perez, '07, is a tract 
for the times. Although the book has 
sprung from the ground of that ward 
of Uncle Sam's which is now so much 
under discussion, and reflects Philip- 
pine conditions, it contains much that 
needs serious pondering by Americans 
generally. In essence it is a plea for 
a broader conception both of academic 
education and of vocational education, 
and a sane adjustment of the two. 
Particularly the "white-collar" preju- 

dice which has done such damage to 
American education is attacked vig- 
orously, and a protest entered against 
the type of "education" which alien- 
ates its victim from his native envir- 
onment. The American college has 
not been innocent in this fault, any 
more than the Americanized schools 
of our island territories. Mr. Perez 
says some things that may well be 
emphasized in our thinking in the 
present revaluation of values which is 
occurring in all lands. 


Death claimed James Lippiatt, af- 
fectionately known as "Chief" to sev- 
eral generations of Bucknell co-eds at 
his home in Lewisburg on Monday, 
December 26, 1932. He was eighty- 
five years of age and a native of Eng- 
land, coming to this country as a boy. 
Interment took place at Shamokin, his 
former home. 


THE athletic problem of fratern- 
ity vs. varsity in basketball was 
effectively solved this Fall when 
the interfraternity league schedule 
was completed before the varsity sea- 
son had opened. Foolish rules, regu- 
lations, eligibility lists, and confusion 
were avoided by simplifying the mat- 
ter in the most satisfactory manner. 
One at a time. 

THE creation of new scholarships 
by the Board of Trustees is a 
move in the right direction. If 
we can attract high type students 
through competitive scholarships the 
resultant increase in the prestige and 
position of the university will be a 
source of gratification to alumni.

oneer work of that state as minister, 
teacher and head of the Theological 
Seminary and also in the practice of 
law. In all of these branches of pro- 
fessional work he was highly success- 
ful. Cause of his death, the Flu, ■ —

Miss Edith Furst, an art student 
here in 1886, died January 8 at the 
Lock Haven Hospital of pneumonia, 
which followed an attack of the grip. 
She was a daughter of Cline G. and 
Jennie Beaver Furst. Her mother 
graduated from Bucknell Institute in 
1858. Her daughter Edith in the eigh- 
ties and nineties frequently visited her 
grandfather, Mr. Peter Beaver, whose 
home is now owned by Mrs. Harold 
M. McClure, on University Ave., Lew- 

Miss Furst was an active member 
of the Great Island Presbyterian

out ■■ Lock Haven for her benevolence 
and philanthropy. She is survived only 
by her younger sister Mabel, now Mrs.

The Rev. Samuel Sears Merriman, 
a retired Baptist minister, died sud- 
denly from heart failure, December 
27, 1932 at Bolton, Mass., where he 
had lived for the last six years. 

Rev. Merriman prepared for college 
at Peddie Institute, Hightstown, N. J., 
entering Bucknell in 1882. He soon 



became prominent in the musical and 
social life of the University and town. 
He served on the editorial staff of the 
Bucknell Mirror, wrote many college 
and fraternity songs among which is 
"Dear Bucknell" and was a member 
of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity. 
Mr. Merriman received his Master's 
degree in 1889, the same year in which 
he graduated from Crozer Theological 
Seminary. He helped to organize the 
First Baptist Church of Merchantville, 
N. J. where he was ordained in 1890. 
In 1895 Mr. Merriman accepted a call 
to the First Baptist Church of Tren- 
ton, N. J. as associate pastor. Follow- 
ing this pastorate he was associated 
with the Central Baptist Church as 
chorister and for a few years engaged 
in the advertising business afterwards 
becoming pastor of the Olivet Baptist 
Church where he held a long pastorate. 
An editorial from one of the Trenton 
papers follows — "Many residents of 
Trenton will learn with sincere regret 
of the death of the Rev. Samuel Sears 
Merriman, former pastor of the Olivet 
Baptist Church which occurred a few 
days ago in Bolton, Mass. 

For more than thirty years, the Rev. 
Merriman was a resident of Trenton 
and was active in the religious and the 
civic life of the community. He gained 
a great number of warm personal 
friends and, working without ostenta- 
tion, accomplished much good both in 
a spiritual and a material way. Ani- 
mated as he was by the highest ideals 
of citizenship and of Christianity, the 
Rev. Merriman was a respected citi- 
zen of Trenton who served well the 
city and his people". 

Rev. Merriman is survived by two 
sisters, Mrs. Samuel Z. Batten, '85, of 
Imperial, Calif., and Mrs. George 
Shorkley, '95, of Mount Vernon, Wash.

Canal. He and William Aurand are 
the only raft pilots now living along 
the river between Lock Haven and 
Marietta. The Sunbury Item says: 
"Mr. Coryell entered the arduous oc- 
cupation of rafting at 14. His first 
work was as lumber jack on the log 
drive from Cherry Tree, in Indiana 
County, at the very headwaters of the 
West Branch, to Lock Haven. 

"At 19 he started to run rafts from 
Lock Haven as pilot and head of the 
fleet. His first rafts were for Amos 
Haines at Winfield. Later he ran rafts 
for McClure and Holt of Northumber- 
land; then for Hiram Meyers; and 
later for Billmeyer and Himmelreich, 
of Lewisburg. Some rafts he safely 
ran from Keating, 40 miles above Lock 
Haven to Marietta, a distance of 185 

"'In 1891,'" Mr. Coryell said, "'I 
took my son Harry along while I 
brought down to Lewisburg the larg- 
est oak timber that ever came down 
the West Branch. The sticks of logs 
making up the rafts were 34 inches 
square, and from 40 to 60 feet in 
length.' "

follows : 

"I have just been reading the cur- 
rent issue of the Monthly and noted 
how many references are made to the 
burning of 'Old Main'. It occurs to 
me that an incident in which I per- 
formed the major act (which might 
have brought about this regrettable 
calamity at that time) might be inter- 
esting and timely. 

It occurred during my Freshman 
year 1905-06. I roomed in 'Old Main' 
in what was, I think 12 ¥2 on second 
floor, East Wing. Guy Payne, (whom 
all on the campus at this time know) 
and his roommate Don Humm were 
rooming near me. It was late supper 
time and every one, but myself, had 
gone from the Wing and practically 
all had gone from the building in gen- 
eral, to their several eating places. I 
was hurrying to get to my eating place 
at Mitterlings. As I rushed from my 
room, my nostrils were greeted by the 
smell of burning cotton. I, at once, 
began an investigation and found that 
Don Humm had left his electric light 
bulb lighted and, accidently, had 
thrown his pillow over it on his bed. 
The bulb, thus smothered, had so heat- 
ed that the bed was on fire when I 
opened the door. It was easily ex- 
tinguished, since I found it in time. 
But, had I not been detained for a 
little while longer than the other oc- 
cupants of the Wing, that which hap- 
pened last summer, might have oc- 
curred then. 

I am glad that 'Old Main' is to be 
replaced by a better and modern build- 
ing, but like the old alumnus of Dr. 
Hill's time, should I return to the 
Campus, sadness would grip me at not 
being able to see the old building in 
which I spent my first year at Buck-

A New 7 Point 
Alumni Program 


For the average alumnus of Bucknell (five thousand men and women) 
the following program of 

"How I Can Help" is Presented-Here's How! 

(Check them off): 

1. Send a gift to The Akimni Fund. Broke? Aren't we all? 

2. Interest a likely looking 5-oungster in coming to Bucknell. Don't 

know any? 

3. Talk with the High School Principal and sell Bucknell to him. 

4. Answer your Class Agent's card and volunteer to help round up others. 

5. Write the Alumni Office about any jobs that you know of for other 


6. Send a personal item to The Alumni Monthly about yourself. 

7. Attend Bucknell meetings in your district. 

What do you say Mr. and Mrs. and Miss Alumnus? Can you do 
anything for Bucknell this year cr not? One alumnus who read this 
program in proof sent his check at once and wrote that if we came to 
his ofEce he would be tempted to give us the furniture. 





Editor^s Corner 

BECAUSE the printer ran out of 
initial letters for this column last 
month we decided to try an old 
editing trick of having the initial let- 
ters spell something. Here goes the 
experiment, and all because we are led 
to believe that people read this little 

UNLESS we are off the track our 
new cover design has met with a 
good reception. Many even 
commented that they were tired of the 
older one anyway — ■ and it our prize 
winner! The public is fickle so we are 
consoled that while the new cover 
may be good for awhile it will eventu- 
ally find its way into the discard heap 
to make way for yet another "new". 

CLEVER editors of alumni maga- 
zines ask their readers through 
personal letters to help edit the 
old sheet. Our budget is too meagre 
to stand the postage but we do here 
and now ask for opinions on "What 
I Like in the Alumni Monthly". 

KICK in with an idea, folks, the 
contest is open to all. We have 
tried slices of alumni opinion at 
times by picking names at random 
from the files and postcarding ques- 
tions. The magazine has been largely 
guided by these answers — • now the 
question arises how faithful were 
those slices of opinion to the entire 
alumni taste. Mail your suggestions 
on a penny card. All answers will be 
acknowledged. For the sake of brevity 
in answers we present the following 
list for checking purposes. Just num-

NEVER have we been so inspired 
as on the occasion of Architect 
Larson's presentation to the fac- 
ulty of his conception of the Bucknell 
of tomorrow. The plan is breath tak- 
ing in its beauty and simplicity. Those 
few alumni who have studied the map 
of the new campus are unstinting in 
their praise of the plan, and of the 
architect who drew it. Mr. Larson was 
unhampered by tradition and provin- 
cialism in his conception. Some of the 
aspects of the treatment of the present 
Quadrangle come as fresh bi'eezes to 
a musty closed up mind. Again we 
see the value of "new blood" pulsing 
through the veins of an old college. 
The retention of the four "Old Main" 
columns with a memorial capstone 
will appeal to every alumnus. This 
spot will become an alumni shrine for

ENTHUSIASM sweeps the campus 
over the marvelous production of 
"Romeo and Juliet" on two suc- 
cessive nights by the combined forces 
of Cap and Dagger, Frill and Frown, 
and other allied dramatic, literary, art 
and music talent of the University. 
The leads were played by professional 
artists with able support from an all 
star cast of faculty and students. 
Much credit for the staging and cos-

ardent workers who devoted many 
weeks of time to the preparation of 
the eminently successful production.

is holding a reunion — the threes and 
eights — make it a double ring. Plan 
ahead now for that long postponed 
but promised trip to the campus. Get 
a chestful of good old Susquehanna 
Valley air, and a heartful of true 
alumni loyalty to Alma Mater. Re- 
fresh yourself. The trip costs little 
and you profit much in raised hopes 
and a newer outlook.

LEST alumni fail to receive due 
recognition on correspondence 
with University offices it has 
been wisely suggested to this corner 
that we pass along a suggestion. Use 
your class numerals! They are really 
a mark of distinction and should be 
used. The Registrar might mistake 
you for a prospective freshman. The 
use of numerals on letters from alum- 
ni will save clerical time and insure 
attention. We thank you! 



February-March, 1933 

No. 5 


A prominent faculty member was overheard to say re- 
cently that if President Rainey did nothing else for 
Bucknell he had earned his reputation for the future 
with the new architectural plans proposed through his 
efforts. We concur in that opinion for the selection by 
President Rainey of Mr. Larson as University Architect 
was a master stroke. 

Dr. Homer P. Rainey is still a "new" president. He 
has been in office less than two years. "Let's Look at the 
Record", as Al Smith would say. What else has he done 
for Bucknell? 

A "new" president and especially a young man con- 
fronted with different surroundings and strange people is 
"on edge" for a while. He is cautious and like a new Sen- 
ator not permitted to make a name for himself at once. 
He is on exhibition for at least a year while faculty and 
alumni "look him over". Any definite moves are regarded 
with suspicion. Naturally criticism is withheld in deference 
to "newness". That period in the present administration 
is over. The "honeymoon" has ended. 

President Rainey now has become a genuine working 
part of the University and is no longer "on parade". He 
has heard all manner of criticism and complaint and most 
successfully weathered all storms. His plans have been 
pushed forward with vigor and enthusiasm and the latest 
and greatest move — the architectural plan — • has defi- 
nitely established him as an able leader and far seeing di- 
rector of the destinies of Bucknell. 

Looking at the record we see first his zeal in promot- 
ing the general survey of the University. From this work 
will come many academic changes next year. Before the 
survey was undertaken the useless and archaic "cut sys- 
tem" was abolished and with it went the disgust of stu- 
dents and faculty alike at being "supervised by a card 
file". Another early move of President Rainey was to 
abolish the distinction between the University and The 
School of Music by elimination of the term "school" and 
the substitution of the term "department". Thus the 
foolish and useless separation of the two was encompassed 
by the absorption of the work in music into the general 
university plan. 

The results of the survey along the lines of admissions 
and changed curricula are far reaching and will be several 
years in reaching full fruition. The immediate benefits of 
the work are seen in the junking of the old departmental 
system in favor of the divisional grouping. 

Minor changes directly attributable to the president 
are centered about the rearrangement of the financial 
structure of the university, a change in financial record 
keeping that is still in process of evolution; and the stu- 
dent attitude toward chapel. Dr. Rainey has directed the 
changes in both of these fields. The financial field is well 
known to him. His experiences in studies of public school 
finance have stood him in good stead in his direction of 
the changes and evolution from an antiquated financial 
structure to one more modern and useful. His attempts 
to place the semi-weekly Chapel on a different plane have 
been wholly successful. Student attendance and interest 
in these religious services have proved the value of the 
change from compulsory attendance at a boresome Chapel 
service to an eagerly awaited semi-weekly Assembly where 
a planned and well prepared program is presented. 

While it has been manifestly impossible to secure one 
hundred per cent approval on all presidential proposals 
and appointments the general feeling is one of hope for 
the future through the changes already made and those 
to come. If mistakes have been made in the sweeping 
changes effected it has been far better to do something pro- 
gressive along with a few errors than to remain dormant. 

The record is dominantly in black ink for all to see 
and read. A few red entries are balanced by the over- 
whelming strength of the credit pages. The vision of 
President Rainey and Architect Larson of a changed aca- 
demic atmosphere and future campus at Bucknell should 
stir the pride of every alumnus. 


ONE of the older colleges in the East reports a gain 
of 1,400 givers during 1932 to her Alumni Fund. 
The total cash received as compared to previous 
years was slightly less than previous "highs" but to re- 
alize that the number of donors increased is high tribute to 
the loyalty of the alumni of that college. More than forty 
per cent of the college graduates have been contributors 
to this fund since 1926. A proud record. 

Bucknell's Alumni Fund is largely patterned after the 
unnamed one just mentioned. By the same ratio we should 
have in 1933 more than twenty per cent of our alumni 
contributing this year. During the past year less than 
twelve per cent were on our records. 

The Alumni Fund is a CONTINUING plan whereby 
alumni express faith in Alma Mater — not in dollars and 
cents — but in annual gifts regardless of amount. During 
1933 the plan will be presented to every alumnus. None 
should hesitate about how much to give. Give something! 
It is the spirit — not the size of the gift that counts! 

We urge that local charities and relief work come first 
in your budget with Alma Mater second. The Fund is not 
a charity, and we hesitate to suggest the ranking of sec- 
ond to relief work because of the inference. The Fund is 
the ONLY channel through which alumni may say to Buck- 
nell "We believe in you and want to help". The Fund was 
inaugurated in 1930 to do away with the annual dues plan 
and magazine subscriptions. It is the plan of the alumni — 
for, of, and by alumni. Give evidence of your faith in Buck- 
nell as well as in yourself by your check to this worthy 
alumni program. 


TO save publishing costs the February and March 
numbers of this magazine have been merged into 
the present edition. The merger also saves mailing 
costs and brings a more complete edition than would be 
possible with two separate numbers. It is possible that 
further mergers will have to be made. If such becomes the 
case we beg the indulgence of our readers.

for FEBRUARY - MARCH, 1933 

New Campus Plans 

MR. J. FREDERIC LARSON, University Ar- 
chitect, carried the faculty to the heights 
early in February as he outlined his archi- 
tectural development plan for the University. It is 
the first comprehensive and enlightened conception 
for the future that has ever been projected at Buck- 
nell. President Rainey in commenting on the plan 
quoted a prominent trustee as saying that "With the 
completion of this building program Bucknell will 
become an Eastern Mecca for tourists, purely from 
the architectural beauty of the buildings and 

The special facult}^ meeting was called by the 
President to permit Mr. Larson to question the fac- 
ulty on suggestions for changes in his plan. He 
presented a detailed map of the campus and showed 
the proposed location for the new buildings, roads, 
fraternity and faculty' homes. His conception of 
what Bucknell should look like in the future is com- 
plete and sweeping in its beauty and mode of treat- 

Individual buildings are already sketched and a 
conference held with faculty members in the Litera- 
ture Group relative to interior plans for this build- 
ing, the first unit to be erected.

The future campus will utilize the present Hill 
Top as a Freshman Quadrangle with The Library 
converted into a Student LTnion Building by the ad- 
dition of wings on the East and \\'est. 

"Old Main" Memorial 
Special architectural treatment will be accorded 
"Old Main" with the four main columns left stand- 
ing as the central figure of a memorial. The dam- 
aged East and West W'ings will be razed and the 
land terraced and gardened. A capstone will be used 
over the columns of the front portico to preserve 
the beauty and historic value of the most famed of 
Bucknell buildings. The brow of "The Hill" will 
become an alumni shrine with the four giant pillars 
standing defiant to the North. 

A Neat Trick 

The removal of the Obsen^atory from its present 
site to the rise of ground capped by the water tower 
East of the Stadium will serve a double purpose; 
obscure the unsightly water tower from the campus 
view and elevate the Observatory to higher ground, 
the Observatory -will be rebuilt senii-circularly 
about the \\'est quadrant of the water tower. 
New Campus 

To the South of the Library which becomes a 
Student L'nion the present Engineering wing will 
be completed and to the West a Science Hall will 
match the completed Engineering Hall. South and 
West of these two units The Library will dominate 
the entire scheme and become the axis for all future 
buildings. This structure will be in the manner of 
Independence Hall and will front both to the East 
and West with the Arts Quadrangle opening to the 
\\ est with the Humanities Buildings on either side. 

Below the Humanities Buildings and on either 
side of this Quadrangle will be the Chapel and Ad- 
ministration Buildings. 

New Roads 

The present road to the Stadium from the Sigma 
Chi House will be relocated to swing in a great arc 
through the new campus and tie in the Mathewson 
Alemorial Gateway. Behind the Gateway will be 
built the Gymnasium with Tustin Gymnasium con- 
verted into a Freshman Gym. 

University Avenue will continue through the 1905 
Gateway to swing left and up the Hill back of East 
College and on through the new campus in front of 
the new Phi Kappa Psi House to the Stadium. This 
will unite the present Fraternity Row with the site 
along the new sloping campus where future chapter 
houses will be built. 

Inn and Golf Course 

llie LTniversity Farm to the West of the Stadium 
will be converted into an Inn and the Golf course 
will be enlarged to eighteen holes to circle this so- 
cial center. Access to the Inn for the public as well 
as the LTniversit}^ will be made easy by the new 
concrete highway which cuts between the Stadium 
and the University Farm. W^hen a short Northern 
link is completed this road will be the direct through 
route of The Susquehanna Trail from Buft"alo to 

Housing Plan 

Of immediate interest to faculty members is the 
work of a trustee committee at present preparing 
plans for a University-faculty housing plan. The 
new homes will be built between Seventh Street and 
the new North-South highway on the Western 
boundary of the-Li^niversity property adjoining the 
Lewisburg Cemetery. The homes will be centered 
about a new President's House that will be directly 
on the axis established by The Librar}'. Between 
the faculty homes and the Library Quadrangle will 
be situated the Play Fields for tennis, baseball, 
hockejr, and all intra-mural sports. 

The old Academy Building, now Stephen AV. 
Taylor Hall, will be used for the Department of 

Scale Model 

The development plan is so designated that units 
will be created as the need and means are provided. 
A large scale model of the entire draft is now being 
prepared and will be placed on exhibition when com- 
pleted. President Rainey has intimated that in con- 
nection with the exhibition of the scale model he 
will cause to be framed a quotation from the writ- 
ings of Woodrow Wilson : "Humanity Does Not 
Forget Its Benefactors". 

Mr.. Larson was enthusiastic about the natural 
beauty of the campus and its manifold possibilities. 
He has utilized long vistas and sweeping panoramas 
in his new plan. The architecture of all the proposed 
buildings will be Georgian Colonial with the motive 
of the four columns of "Old ]\Iain" predominating. 
Colonial red brick will be used. 

Early Construction 

The construction of the first unit. The Humanities 
Group, will be started this Spring. The building 
will be three hundred and fifty feet long with three

"War-Horse Allen Has Fallen 

Charles N. Allen, '92 

By A. R. E. WYANT, M. D. 

THE passing of my '92 class-mate 
and Phi Gamma Delta fraternity 
brother has stirred up memories of 
old football days. On my office walls in 
Chicago two pictures have hung for over 
25 years. One is of Bucknell's first foot- 
ball team in 1888 and the other is Chi- 
cago's first team in 1892. Charlie Allen 
is with me in both of them. I say Buck- 
nell's first football team, for our fresh- 
man class in 1888 defeated the combined 
upper classes of the University and prac- 
tically introduced football at Bucknell. In 
those days at Bucknell we were too poor 
to hire a coach. Some of us bought our 
own canvas suits, stockings and shoes. 
We had no other accouterments except a 
chrysanthemum mop of hair for a head- 
gear. Football was real foot ball in those 
early days for the center stood on one 
foot and snapped the ball back with the 
other foot. 

Allen was a football enthusiast from 
the beginning and we made him our first 
captain. He was so assiduous and 
efficient as a leader that we re-elected him for each of 
the three following seasons. During those four years we 
played over fifty college games. I remember when we de- 
feated Lafayette College on Friday and played Lehigh 
University the next day on our way home. Our greatest 
victory in 1891 was over Cornell, 4 to 0, when a former 
crack halfback at Harvard and coach at Cornell played on 
the team against us. Tliey nearly killed Allen in revenge 
the next year when as coach he played with Bucknell's 
team against them. 

Charlie was also an expert left-handed tennis player. 
He, Pimm, Prof. Bartol and I built a tennis court of our 
own and played nearly every day during the early summer 
for four years. He and I held the College championship in 
doubles during those four years and the last two years 
also the doubles championship of the colleges of central 

Stagg was coach, captain and half-back on Chicago's 
first team. I was Chicago's first elected captain in 1893, 
and again played under Allen's captaincy in 1894 for on my 
recommendation he was elected as my successor and also re- 
elected captain the following year. It was during the 
Christmas holidays of 1894 that our football team made the 
first transcontinental trip to play the colleges on the Pa- 
cific. This was one of the high spots in our seven years' 
football experience together. My scrap-book reminds me 
that we were welcomed at the Bay by a representative 
committee, among whom was one Herbert Hoover, Treas- 
urer of the Stanford team. What do you think of that! 
The future President of the U. S. A. was there to greet us. 
The Press gave us more publicity than we had ever re- 
ceived before. Some marvelous pen-pictures were drawn 
of various members of the team. Here is one of Captain 
Allen: "He stands six feet high and is one of the most 
determined players imaginable. He has a splendid phy- 
sique and indomitable courage, and is, moreover, particu- 
larly well acquainted with every detail of the game. He is 

gritty, tricky and, above all, never sur- 
renders, no matter how unpromising the 
prospect. He seems to have a natural 
propensity for the game. When the fight 
is the fiercest Allen's genial mood reaches 
the climax. He was by far the best man 
to advance the ball for Chicago." 

Coach Stagg in his remarkably inter- 
esting autobiographical book "Touch- 
down!" pays Allen a glowing tribute. 
He rang me up when the Associated 
Press informed him of Allen's death and 
the tone of his voice and tenor of his talk 
indicated that he had lost a real friend. 

Recently I conceived the idea of giving 
a complimentary anniversary dinner at 
The Quadrangle Club of the University of 
Chicago to the old boys who played under 
my captaincy forty years ago. It is plan- 
ned for October 28th, after the Chicago - 
Michigan game. It will remind us of our 
first great victory over Michigan forty 
years ago when the team was carted by 
a crowd of enthusiastic students at the 
ropes to President Harper's home and 

from his porch he said: "Gentlemen of the football team, I 
am proud of you. The battle you have fought today is 
typical of the battle of life. You have won a glorious 
victory today. I hope you may do as well in life." 

Before the holidays I wrote to "War-Horse" Allen to 
give him an early invitation so that he might plan to come 
to our "Century of Progress' fair and our anniversary 
dinner at the same time. And, by the way, if any of the 
old boys who played with me at Bucknell can arrange to 
be in Chicago at that time I hereby invite them to be my 
guests at this dinner. 

I was greatly surprised to learn that Allen had been 
suffering for months from an incurable ailment. He wrote: 
"I always wanted to come back to Chicago, but was never 
able and now as I have only a few weeks to live, I never 
will. We must have our reunion with the 'old-timers' some- 
where beyond the Styx." Later his wife wrote: "He is 
playing the last few minutes of the last quarter of the 
game of life with the same sporting spirit that has char- 
acterized his whole life." Fighting the demon of depres- 
sion he could carry on; but the devil of cancer laid him 
low. He died January 26, 1933. 

Charles W. Allen was born September 18, 1862. He 
graduated from Keystone Academy preparatory to Buck- 
nell. After finishing at Chicago, he taught English and 
coached at Alma College, Michigan, and later at Whitman 
College, Washington, whose football team defeated the 
teams of the Universities of Oregon, Washington and 
Idaho. In 1904 Allen established the Allendale Ranch on 
the Metolius River and developed the breeding of register- 
ed Jersey cattle. He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Flor- 
ence S. Allen, who once taught in a Vermont female sem- 
inary; and the following children: John A., a son by a 
former marriage; Metola and Louise, who both won recog- 
nition as high school and college basketball players. His 
funeral service was held in the local Baptist Church and 
his body was cremated in Portland.

ummer oession 

July 5 to August 15, 1933. By J. H. Eisenhaucr, '05, Director 

THE eleventh annual Summer Session of Bucknell Uni- 
versity will feature a course in Public School Finance 
by Dr. Homer Price Rainey, Ph.D., LL.D., President 
of Bucknell. 

The subject is one in which Dr. Rainey is a recognized 
expert. He has taught the same course at the University 
of Texas and at the University of Oregon and has spoken 
on that topic at numerous educational gatherings through- 
out the country. 

He is the author of a college text on the financing of 
public schools and has written several important mono- 
graphs on that subject. 

Last summer Dr. Rainey taught in the summer school 
of the University of Minnesota, but has announced his 
intention of remaining on the Bucknell campus this sum- 
mer in order that he may give his first course here in the 
Summer Session. 

Public School Administrative Officers 

The Pennsylvania State Council of Education has ap- 
proved Bucknell University for the training of administra- 
tive and supervisory officers. The summer program of ap- 
proved studies in education has been arranged to meet 
the needs both of those who have already begun their work 
toward these certificates and of those who wish to begin 
this summer. 


The academic and professional requirements for cer- 
tificates to teach in our schools are constantly being in- 
creased. Teachers are increasingly taking advantage of 
the summer session to fit themselves to do better the work 
they are now doing and to be adequately prepared for ad- 
vancement when the opportunity comes. 


The summer session ofl'ers undergraduates an oppor- 
tunity to accelerate their college courses. Opportunities to 
secure remunerative employment this summer may be few. 
Undergraduates will therefore find it profitable to use the 
summer session to prepare themselves for positions ahead 
of those who do nothing during the summer. 

Graduate Work 

Bucknell University offers two graduate curricula to 
students desiring the Master's degree. They are Master of 
Arts and Master of Science in Education. 

Education Bulletin 

A special bulletin covering the work in education is 
available and will be sent upon request. This bulletin gives 
information on the following subjects: Bucknell University 
and Teacher Training, Special Activities of the Department 
of Education, Undergraduate Curricula for Prospective 
Teachers, Graduate Offerings in Professional Education, 
Courses in Education for which Graduate Credit may be 
Obtained, Requirements of the Pennsylvania State Council 
of Education for Ad- 
ministrative and Sup- 
ervisory Officers, and 
Arrange nient of 
Courses for such offic- 

The Demonstration 

A n achievement 
worthy of note is a 
training school for 
student teachers. The 
State Department of 
Public Instruction of 
Pennsylvania requires 
90 hours of observa- 
tion and practice 
teaching in a pub- 
lic school or in a 
school organized to 
furnish all the condi- 
tions of a public 

fjc«-^— • v/??»^ 


"The Demonstration School" 

school, as part of the requirement for certification to teach 
in the public schools of the State. 

The Demonstration School, in a public school setting 
but under entire control of the University, combines the 
desirable features of both the public and the private school. 
Student teachers observe carefully prepared demonstra- 
tions, and endeavor to discover the fundamental principles 
underlying the work. They teach both large and small 
groups of pupils and supervise pupil activities. They en- 
gage in individual, department and large group confer- 
ences. The entire set-up is that of a laboratory, in which 
persons vitally interested in problems of the teaching 
profession test out approved theory in practical situations. 

Each year applicants must be turned away. Only the 
better types of students are accepted. Applications should 
be filed early. 

Professor Frank G. Davis is the Director of the Dem- 
onstration School. The remarkable growth of this school 
has been due to his efficient work. Working under his 
direction are a principal and a staff of teachers especially 
selected because of their recognized abilities in their re- 
spective fields. 

Beginning with two critic teachers and a few children 
from the Lewisburg schools, this special training school 
accommodated seven student teachers in the summer of 
1925. Its rapid growth is best shown by the fact that in 
the summer of 1932, 59 student teachers were trained by 
10 critic teachers in a school with an enrollment of 250 
pupils, who came from Lewisbm-g, Milton, Northumber- 
land, Sunbury, Watsontown, Montgomery, and Mifflinburg. 
To attract so many children for voluntary study during six 
weeks in the heat of summer, without any promise of re- 
ward other than the satisfaction of increased knowledge, 
is no mean feat. 

An Ideal Place for Summer Study 

Two factors make summer study profitable. The first 
of these is the satisfaction of worth-while learning; the 
second, a health building environment. 

Courses of study, rich in content, are interestingly 
presented by competent instructors. Classes are small 
enough to consider individual problems of interest to the 
group and large enough to secure widely variable reac- 
tions. The President of a well-known college of high rank 
writes: "I may say that our Professor of Education thinks 
highly of the work available at Bucknell. That is why 
you have had several of our students during the summer 
of 1932." 

The beautiful campus causes much favorable comment. 
Park benches make it possible for students to gather into 
groups in the shade of the giant oaks. 


Afternoon and Saturday excursions to near-by places 
of interest to lovers of the great out of doors are con- 
ducted under the per- 
sonal supervision of 
Professor Norman H. 

Woodward Cave, 
Alexander Caverns, 
Seven Mile Narrows, 
Kitchen's Creek Falls, 
Blue Hill, and Eagles 
Mere are some of the 
places to which ex- 
cursions have been 
conducted during past 
summers. Each sum- 
mer Professor Stew- 
art has also taken his 
students in nature 
study to New York 
City to visit the 
Aquarium and Natur- 
al History Museum. 


In addition to the excursions mentioned above, an an- 
nual event has been the Gettysburg Trip under the direc- 
tion of Doctor Melchior. 

The Picnic 

The Summer Session without the annual picnic would 
be like apple pie without cheese. Blue Hill has been the 
place. Baseball, quoits, contests of various kinds and stunts 
furnish amusement. Eats! An experienced committee 
knows what is good on such an occasion. 

Golf and Tennis 

The Bucknell University Golf Club owns and operates 
a beautiful nine-hole golf course. Summer Session students 
may play on this inviting course for the nominal green fee 
of ten dollars for the entire session. Tennis courts are 
kept in good condition for the use of the students during 
the summer. 

Readings from Favorite Authors 

In the summer of 1930, Professor Coleman gave an 
hour one evening to readings from favorite authors. The 
response of the student body was so gratifying that this 
interesting and instructive feature of the Summer Session 
has been continued each year. 

In the summer of 1931, Professor Warfel continued the 
work begun by Professor Coleman. Last summer Profes- 
sor Coleman was again on the faculty and continued what 
has now become an established event of the Summer Ses- 

The living room of Larison Hall provides an informal 
setting for the readings. Here amid surroundings sugges- 
tive of home, a part of the Summer Session family gathers 
to hear a masterful reader interpret great authors. 

Special Lectures 

Last summer a new feature was added when Mr. 
George E. Sokolsky was invited to the campus for a day. 
Mr. Sokolsky is a news reporter who spent 14 years in 
China. In the morning he met a group of students in an 
informal discussion of affairs in China. At noon he was 
entertained at luncheon by the faculty. In the evening he 
gave a formal lecture on the Manchurian situation. It was 
a busy day for him but the students spoke in the highest 
terms of the value of his visit. 

This summer Professor Davis Edwards of Chicago 
has been engaged. He will read "Lazarus Laughed". 

The Play 

During each of the last two summers, the class in 
Dramatics, under the direction of Professor Smith, pre- 
sented a three-act play. In the summer of 1931, Oscar 
Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest" was presented, 
and in 1932, John Drinkwater's "Bird in Hand". Large and 
appreciative audiences attended both events. 

Social Functions 

A reception for faculty and students is held the first 
Friday of the session. Thereafter informal dances and 
other forms of entertainment are provided in the living 
room of Larison Hall. 

A Brief History 

The Summer Session was organized in 1914, with 
Nelson F. Davis, Sc.D., as its dean. But hardly had the 
venture been made when the World War started, and as 
soon as the United States entered the conflict the Summer 
Session v/as discontinued. 

It was resumed again in 1923, under the general sup- 
ervision of a faculty committee, and under the immediate 
direction of Guido C. L. Riemer, Ph.D., then of the State 
Department of Public Instruction, who served as dean. 
In that first Summer Session of the present series, eight 
departments offered 36 courses. These departments were: 
biology, chemistry, education, English, history, psychology, 
mathematics, and music. 

In 1924, George B. Lawson, A.M., D.D., became the 
director of the Summer Session. During the following 
year, Dr. Lawson still headed the session, and a dean of 
women was added in the person of Assistant Professor 
Amelia E. Clark. In the Summer Session of 1926, Pro- 
fessor James P. Whyte succeeded Dr. Lawson as director. 
Two years later, the present incumbent became director. 

The developmnt of the Summer Session has been 
steady, and the enrollment has shown a consistent growth. 
In the summer of 1933, 18 departments will offer a total 
of 79 courses. The teaching staff has grown, until in 1933 
there will be 36 instructors in the session. The student 
enrollment grew steadily from the 126 registered in 1923 

to a maximum enrollment of 447 in the summer of 1931. 
The enrollment in 1932 was 435. In every way, the sum- 
mer session has forged steadily ahead. It apparently has 
met a very real need. 

Tuition, Board and Room 
The tuition fee is S8.00 per semester hour. Board for 
the six weeks is §42.00. To students who wish board from 
Monday to Friday only, the rate is §5.00 per week. A room 
in a dormitory is §18.00 for the six weeks. Hunt Hall will 
be used as the only residence hall for women this summer. 
Rooms for married couples who may wish to take their 
meals at the college may be obtained in private homes 
near the campus. 

Alumni Interest 

Alumni suggestions and constructive criticisms are 
welcomed. Bucknell is one of a very few colleges and uni- 
versities in Pennsylvania that have been approved by the 
State Council of Education for the preparation of public 
school administrative officers. 

President Rainey has been well received both on and 
off the campus. His inspiring leadership is a steadying in- 
fluence in these days of uncertainty. His presence on the 
campus this summer will add greatly to the value of the 
Summer Session. 

Friends or acquaintances of alumni who may be think- 
ing of furthering their education this summer will wel- 
come information and recommendations. 

A tentative program of studies is available on re- 
quest. The complete catalogue will be published about

Bucknell's new plan of courses and revised curriculum 
has attracted nation wide interest as attested to by a flood 
of correspondence reaching Lewisburg requesting addi- 
tional information about the operation of the plan. 

The New York Herald Tribune under date of January 
22, carried a complete account of the idea from the pen of 
Dr. Homer P. Rainey, President. Since the publication of 
this article Dr. Rainey has had numerous requests for sim- 
ilar ones. 

In the March issue of The American Magazine of Art 
published by the American Federation of Art in Washing- 
ton, D. C, a column is devoted to the place of music in the 
new curriculum. A forthcoming issue of The Omegon, 
national fraternity publication of Theta Upsilon Omega, 
will feature a complete article by President Rainey. 


Registrar H. Walter Holter, '24, extends thanks in ad- 
vance to all alumni who fill out and return to him the slip 
enclosed with this issue of the magazine requesting names 
of High School seniors planning a college course. Repre- 
sentatives of Bucknell will call upon these prospective 
Bucknell students to assist them in choice of courses. These 
representatives are really Counsellors on Education as they 
make recommendations of not only courses but colleges as 
well (not necessarily Bucknell if another better fills the 
need of the applicant). 


(Continued from Page 3) 

entries when eventually completed, Reproductions 
of the front of "Old Main", will be used on the en- 
tries. The building will house both class rooms and 
faculty offices. The first floor will be devoted to 
class rooms opening on a long glass enclosed prom- 
enade instead of the usual corridor. Faculty offices 
and reception rooms will be on the second floor. 

The pending insurance settlement on "Old Main" 
is all that is necessary before construction work be- 
gins on this first unit of the new campus.

Colleges, like other institutions, are facing serious financial difficulties and necessary 
readjustments. Many colleges, like many businesses, have, in recent years, overexpanded 
their educational programs. Now with decreased enrollments and loss in tuition and re- 
turn on endowments there is necessity for a curtailment of programs and general retrench- 
ment. The colleges are meeting these difficulties with courage and dispatch. Every possi- 
ble effort is being made to adjust college programs and budgets to new demands. The 
colleges are keenly aware of their obligation to balance their budgets, and to operate on a 
sound financial basis. 

There are two encouraging factors for the colleges in the present crisis. In the first place, 
a recent study by Mr. A. C. Marts, a member of the Board of Trustees of Bucknell Uni- 
versity, and of the firm of Marts and Lundy of New York, shows that colleges and univer- 
sities have had the best record of financial management of all other business institutions, 
and thus, have withstood the depression better than others. It was pointed out than the 
business management of these institutions has been wise and conservative, and that the. 
Boards of Trustees and Finance Committees of these Boards have protected trust funds and 
endowments unusually well. In the face of unprecedented decline in security values the re- 
turns from invested funds in many institutions have held up remarkably well. This is true 
of our own institution. Our income from endowments for the current years has declined less 
than four per cent. This fact is a fine compliment to our Board of Trustees and our business 
management. It should inspire appreciation of, and confidence in, their leadership. Further- 
more, our Board is taking every care to prevent a deficit in operating expenditures. Reduc- 
tions have been made in every phase of our program. At the same time every possible effort 
is being made to protect and conserve the quality of our work. 

In the second place, the social and moral qualities which the present crisis is demand- 
ing and which we must have to preserve our society and institutions are the values which our 
colleges have always striven to provide, and are providing in a larger measure than any other 
social institution outside the home and the church. The present crisis is a spiritual crisis. 
It is characterized by a breakdown of fundamental moral character and a loss of faith in 
our institutions and our leadership. Our colleges have always emphasized the development 
of moral character as their primary aim, and they are today the great stronghold of American 

These two factors should entrench our colleges in the confidence of their constituencies. 
They are supplying men and women trained in the essential social virtues for the perpetua- 
tion of our society, and they have the finest business management of any other institution in 
our society. For these reasons they deserve the continued confidence and loyal support of 
their constituencies. ■ '' 

In the development of our new program at Bucknell and in our efforts to meet the un- 
usual demands of a new society, I covet the undivided loyalty of every alumnus and friend 
of Bucknell. We are receiving many evidences that our program is being well received, in 
many quarters. Your interest and enthusiasm will do much to make it a success. 

Faithfully yours, 






ONLY the joy in Heaven over a redeemed sinner 
come to Glory is comparable to the joy and blissful 
relief in an Alumni Office when a "Lost" address 
is "Found". Were it not for the ever present "Lost" file, 
wherein "wrong- numbers" are kept, there would be little 
work for a clerical staff. This one task of tracing brothers 
and sisters who steal away in the dead of night from one 
perfectly good address, kept for years, to a secret rendez- 
vous, unknown to even the post office, required more than 
half the routine effort expended by the Alumni Office. 

In sheer desperation the alumni magazine pages are 
used once a year to publish the names of those whose 
cards are marked "Whereabouts Unknown". A few class- 
mates send in sketchy clues and now and then some more 
than able class sleuth sends in a perfectly fine brand new 
address. Hosannahs are then sung by the staff with the 
Secretary leading in his wobbly baritone. 

The new address is rushed to the Graphotype machine 
where a metal plate is embossed with key signals for fra- 
ternity and city clubs and duplicate plates created in like- 
ness to the original. The Addressograph caresses each new 
plate like a maternal Tabby fondling her youngest. The 
cards that come from this second machine are then com- 
pared with the former address cards in Alphabetical, Class, 
Fraternity, and Club files and information contained on 
the older cards transcribed to the new ones as supple- 
mentary information to the address. After this transcrip- 
tion the new cards take their places like soldiers proud of 
their new uniforms and the old cards slink away to the 
musty Biographical File where every old address at last 
find a permanent home. 

The original plate from which the cards are made 
awaits its turn for filing in the great Addressograph File. 
Finally it takes its place alongside its brothers in the same 
city or town and is given a flag to carry to denote degree, 
sex, and Alumni Fund contributions. The duplicate plates 
are filed alphabetically in the various fraternity and club 
files to await special addressing operations to these groups. 
The great Addressograph File is used regularly in the 
mailing of The Bucknell Alumni Monthly. 

By actual timing of an average operator the routine 
address change requires twelve minutes of time. Multiply 
this by the daily average of twenty-six changes and the 
alumni office workers may receive a bit of your considera- 
tion when you change your address. 

This short story of the changing of an address is only 
the last step in the long wearisome, sometimes fruitless 
search for the address after the older one is marked "N. 
G." by the post office department. The tracing of an ad- 
dress is yet another story, too long and involved to be told 
here. Some methods are regarded as trade secrets so com- 
plicated is the process. Yes! The Alumni Office exists 
for and because of the alumni and sometimes in spite of 
them! It is YOUR office — this story is merely a polite 
way of asking for YOUR help in tracing some of the "Un- 
knowns" as listed by classes on the following pages. Many 
thanks in advance! 


In a letter to the Philadelphia Ledger under date of 
February 1st, Margaret Tustin O'Harra, '83, pays tribute 
to George Wharton Pepper as the successful leader of the 
United Campaign in the City of Brotherly Love. Former 
United States Senator Pepper received an Honorary De- 
gree of Doctor of Civil Laws from Bucknell in 1926. 


Twenty Bucknell leaders in education resident near 
the campus were recently invited by the University and 
The Alumni Association to a "Round Table" Conference 
on New Students and Teacher Placement. The group met 
with President Rainey, Registrar Holter, Dr. Frank Davis, 
and Alumni Secretary Stoughton in a two hour discussion 
of the problems involved. Several definite objectives were 
suggested and proposals made for a continuation of field 
contact work by University officials in the placement of 
teachers and the selection of students for next year. The 
"Round Table" is expected to develop into a larger and 
more exhaustive study of the problems at a later date. 



OMEO and Juliet", revived by Cap and Dagger 
and presented by The Artists Course to capacity 
houses on February 22 and 23, reached a new 
"high" in excellence for campus thespian activities. 

The production was in process for several months 
with various departments expending time and energy in 
preparation for the two professional players who were 
selected to play the leads. Mr. Joseph L. Curtin and Miss 
Barbara Pearson, as Romeo and Juliet, are pictured here- 
with in the immortal tomb scene. Their interpretation was 
attributed to by the reception accorded them by the entire 
cast and community. 

Laurels for exceptional work on the production are 
evenly distributed between Professor C. Willard Smith, 

The Tomb Scene 

Director, Mr. H. Hampton Bray, '33, Production Manager, 
Mr. J. A. Younghusband, '34, Scenery Design, and Pro- 
fessor Blanchard Gummo, '25, Costumer. Ample praise 
was also bestowed by town and gown on Professor Paul 
Gies, in charge of the music, and Mrs. Melvin Le Mon, 
Directress of the dances. The entire cast received fine 
ovations for their splendid support of the principals. 

Faculty members, visitors, and critics agreed that 
the production was thoroughly professional in all its as- 
pects and a credit to the University. It is highly probable 
that the production may see several road appearances be- 
fore the end of the year. 


Melvin LeMon, Professor of Organ, assisted by the 
Men's Glee Club of which he is Director recently gave a 
well attended and enthusiastically received recital as one 
of a series pi'esented by the department of music. Earlier 
recitals during the year were given by Professor Gies and 
the Symphony Orchestra, and Miss Melicent Melrose, voice, 
assisted by the Melrose Quartette of former pupils.

The death of Miss Nellie M. Cum- 
mings occurred on February 17 at her

50 years. After her retirement she 
moved to Carlisle. 


Mrs. Dora E. Watrous Spratt of 
Grove Beach, Conn, contributes the 
following on the life of a classmate: 
"Mary Hammond (Norris), Sem- 
inary, 1878, finished her life's jour- 
ney during Christmas holidays, 
1930-31, while she was spending the 
winter with her daughter, Mrs. 
Marion Gleason. Her other daugh- 
ter, Mrs. Alvira Bradbury, lives in 
Fontana, Calif.; so naturally she 
frequently crossed the continent. 
Her home for many years was in 
Pasadena, Calif. After her hus- 
band's death she sailed on every 
ocean. It is a question whether 
anyone of our Bucknell Alumnae 
has seen as much of the woi'ld as 
she enjoyed; while few, if any, of 
our Bucknell men have travelled 
more miles. She was in nearly ev- 
ery State of the U. S. A. She went 
to Alaska; to Honolulu two or three 
times; and also sailed around the 
world. She spent two years, with 
her youngest daughter, seeing Eu- 
rope. She also went to Australia 
and New Zealand. In fact, as near 
as her family can sum it up, she 
covered about one hundred and 
twenty thousand miles by land and 
sea. The girls of '78 have journeyed 
much. Sometime we would like to 
add up their many miles; but to no 
one of them can as large a sum 
total be credited as to her whom 
we used to call 'Our Dear Little 
Minnie.' "

ciety for Seamen in America. 


For charitable work in connection 
with his profession during this time 
of economic stress for so many people, 
Dr. Elton S. Corson was presented 
with the trophy given annually by 
Shoemaker Post, American Legion, 
for outstanding community service or 
achievement, the presentation featur- 
ing a patriotic service held Sunday 
evening at the First Baptist Church 
of Bridgeton, N. J. The presentation 
was made by Corporation Counsel 
Samuel Iredell in the presence of a 
representative audience of about 150, 
including many members of the Post. 
Both men, who had been at South Jer- 
sey Institute and Bucknell together, 
were visibly affected by the time the 
presentation was over. Prior to mak- 
ing known the name of the recipient 
Mr. Iredell referred to their relation- 
ship as schoolmates at South Jersey 
Institute and college-mates at Buck- 
nell University and then went into 
paying a tribute to the service which 
led to the awarding of the trophy, 
telling how he had cared for the sick, 
responding to all calls, and calling Dr. 
Corson from the rear of the church, 
pi-esented the plaque adorned with the 
Legion insignia.

Bucknellians were in evidence early in January at 
the quarterly meeting of the Executive Committee of the 
Board of Trustees of Judson College in Rangoon, Burma. 

Doctor. Emory W. Hunt, President Emeritus of Buck- 
nell was in attendance, along with Samuel H. Rickard, 
'23, Vice-Principal of Judson College, Rev. E. Carroll Con- 
diet, '08 of the American Baptist Chin Mission at Thayet- 
myo, Burma and Miss Marian Shivers, '14, chemistry 
teacher at Judson College. 

At the meeting Vice-Principal Rickard was elevated 
to the position of Principal pro tern of the College. The 
minutes of the meeting were recorded by the Secretary, 
Rev. Condict who writes as follows about the work in 
Burma : 

"Many of these Chins have almost no religion. Their 
contact with Buddhism has led them to forget much 
of the spirit worship of their forefathers but they are 
not Buddhists. Our problem is to reach them while 
they are in the state of transition, before they be- 
come Buddhists. That is, to turn them to the 'Jesus 
Road', as the American Indian calls it. Unless we 
can awaken the race to the fact that becoming Budd- 
hists means the extinction of the race and the only 
hope of the race is in becoming Christians, then the 
Chins will become Buddhists. I have been working 

for years along that line — to win the race while it 
is on the march. A trip in January west of here to 
the foot hills gives hope that there is a movement 
towards Christianity and a realization that it is the 
only hope of the race. Before 1932 the most baptisms 
by this mission was 108 in a year. In 1932 the num- 
ber rose to 180. In one week in January, 1933 I bap- 
tized 205 Chins, 85 of them I baptized one afternoon. 
They had walked over a mile to a stream to be bap- 
tized. We are reaping where the seed has been sowed 
again and again during the last 45 years." 


Rev. R. F. Bresnahah, '03, of Yardville, N. J. is offer- 
ing his services as a church lecturer in the interest of 
financial campaigns. Rev. Bresnahan in addition to his 
lectures also supplies churches with a patented system 
of contribution envelopes designed to stimulate giving to 
local and missionary work. 


Ranking high in the state of Pennsylvania is Nanti- 
coke High School under the Principalship of John Davis, 
'02. Twelve fellow Bucknellians assist Principal Davis in 
teaching capacities.

PRIZES were announced last year 
for various types of registrations. 
We forgot to award one — to the 
alumnus travelling the longest dis- 
tance to get to Commencement. The 
winner was Harry W. Pierson, '28, son 
of Rev. R. G. Pierson, '01, of Pitts- 
burgh. Harry travelled some 4.000 
miles from his post as Chief Clerk of 
the United States' Legation at Bogata, 
Columbia and arrived in time for 
Alumni Day. Just a little jaunt! 


' I 'HIS second combined edition 
(this year) of the old rag has 
been christened the April-May 
number just for want of a better name. 
Economy is not the only reason for 
the combination. We held the April 
issue so long waiting for promised 
news of an insurance settlement on 
"Old Main" that most of the articles 
went stale and we had to re-write them 
in condensed form for this edition in 
order not to be too far behind the 
passing scene. 

WE are still waiting for news 
that will mean the breaking of 
ground for the new campus and 
the immediate erection of a classroom 
building to take the place of "Old 
Main". We had hoped (along with 
President Rainey at whose request we 
held our pen poised) for REAL NEWS 
to cheer up you alumni. Now we are 
forced to press by the approach of 
Commencement. We just HAD to 
print the program and make the an- 
councements for reunions, etc. May- 
be we will get our BIG NEWS in time 
for HOMECOMING. (The date is Oc- 
tober 28 and the visiting team 
TEMPLE, coached bv the "famous 
"Pop" Warner). 

COLLEGE representatives are 
touring the countryside inter- 
viewing prospective students for 
next year. Know any? Send their 
names along to Registrar Holter. A 
representative will be glad to call in 
the capacity of Counsellor on Educa- 

SPRING House Parties have gone 
quietly into history. Favors were 
eliminated this year as an ac- 
knowledgement of existing conditions. 
Some dozen fraternities held parties 
with dances on Friday and Saturday 
evenings over the week-end of May 5 
and 6. 

RECENT grads will be shocked or 
delighted at the news that co- 
eds may now smoke in their 
rooms instead of along the streets of 
town or anywhere else that was not 
campus. The new regulation went into 
effect early in May.

Entered as second-class matter December23, 1930 at the post 
office at Lewisburg, Pa., under the Act of August 24, 1912. 

THE full color reproductions of the 
print of "Old Main" are meeting 
with an excellent reception. One 
is mailed to every donor to The Alum- 
ni Fund. You will want one of these 
beautiful pictures and there is only 
one way to get it. Mail that Yellow 
Envelope with your contribution! The 
picture comes to you by return mail. 

ONE Buck! Yellow Envelope! 
Mail! "Names Make News" and 
The Alumni Fund marches on! 
Come on! Do it right NOW! 

COMMENCEMENT visitors should 
not forget the challenge of the 
new Bucknell golf course. Greens 
are faster and fairways better than 
ever this year. Just try to par num- 
ber one! 

COMMENCEMENT proper will be 
staged on Loomis Street in front 
of Hunt Hall with the porch of 
the building used as a platform. The 
setting should rival the former one on 
The Quadrangle in attractiveness. 
More -room is available for guests on 
the new location. 

BASEBALL interest on the campus 
has fallen to a new "low" with 
the team in a slump of defeats. 
A short schedule and a lack of pitchers 
both contribute to the poor record of 
the nine this year. Hope is kept alive 
by a good crop of freshmen who will 
compete for varsity jobs next year. 

ANOTHER welcome change in 
program affords more good mu- 
sic. The Bucknell Symphony 
Orchestra will give a concert Sunday 
afternoon on the Women's Campus at 
four o'clock.

(And the Stamp) 

OX April 26 the maihng of six thousand letters 
to alumni was completed. Along with the 
letter we sent a yellow envelope decorated 
with a three cent stamp in a most well meant at- 
tempt to save valuable alumni time in the dispatch- 
ing of gifts to The Alumni Fund. 

To date (May 1) less than two hundred of these 
vellow envelopes all addressed and stamped have 
reached us. Shall we request a Congressional In- 
vestigation of the postal service ? Surely more than 
that number were mailed to us. 

We refuse to recognize poverty as a reason for the 
dearth of alumni gifts to The Fund. Poverty is only 
an excuse — not a reason — for everyone who eats 
reguarlv can afford a dollar bill in the interest of 

We have set our goal this month as ONE DOL- 
JUNE FIRST. How about it fellow alumni? We 
CAN do it ! Many of you have already sent fives, 
tens, twenties, and a few scattered fifties. Bravo ! 
That makes up for lots of the delinquents — but far 
from all of them ! 

A\'e have paid the freight and told our story of the 
need this year. You do your bit with at least a dol- 
lar bill. Come on! Do it now! You'll feel better 
after that yellow envelope is on its way to Lewis- 
burg. Be LOYAL and read your name in the next 

issue under "Names Make News", 
yellow en\-elope ? TODAY ! 




ONE of the most interesting events of ALUIM- 
NI DAY, SATURDAY^"] UNE 3. 1933, will 
be the reunion of the Class of 1883. Fifty 
3"ears ago fifteen young men were handed their di- 
ploinas on Commencement Day by the late Dr. 
David Jayne Hill, then President of The University 
at Lewisburg. Today seven of the original fifteen 
survive. They have all been invited by personal let- 
ter from President Hoiner P. Rainey to be the guests 
of Bucknell during Commencement \\'eek. 

The seven survivors of the Golden Jubilee Class 
are scattered from Texas to Florida to Illinois with 
one member still a resident of Lewisburg. The other 
three are resident in Scranton, Pittsburgh, and Rid- 
ley Park, Pa. 


FOR the second consecutive year ALUMNI DAY 
of Commencement Week has been set for 
SATL'RDAY. This change from former years 
has been welcomed by alumni everywhere. The reg- 
istration at Alumni Headquarters last year was 
■heavier than at any time cluring the past decade. 
It is hoped that this 3^ear the alumni will return in 

e\-en greater numbers. Geographical figures from 
Alumni Office files show more than three thousand 
alumni resident within two hundred miles of the 
campus — just an easy motor ride to old scenes, old 
friends, and pleasant memories of by gone days. 
\\'e'll be seeing you on JL'NE 3 ! 



E were honored recently by a visit from 
Carlos Alvarez, '09, Director General of Rail- 
ways for The Republic of Ecuador. Mr. 
Alvarez visited the campus for several days after 
an absence of more than twenty-four years. 

Mr. Alvarez believes that the fundamental causes 
of our worldwide depression are to be found only 
after thorough back tracking to fundamentals. One 
cause which he believes to be fundamental is the 
loss of foreign trade by the L'nited States. He cited 
an instance of a brother who owned a retail shoe 
store in Ecuador and sold American made shoes 
only. With the development of competitive markets 
and European production, rival concerns were soon 
patronized almost to the exclusion of American 
made products. This process has been current in 
almost every industry and country in South Amer- 
ica. Those markets were the contributors to the 
high standard of living of the United States. Now 
that a world wide depression has caused a definite 
drop in standards the United States is beginning to 
ask why we lost our South American customers. 

The Gold Standard makes the resumption of trade 
with Latin nations almost impossible as their re- 
serves are too meagre. Mr. Alvarez favors a return 
to a remonitization with silver partially backing the 
currency of ever}^ nation with a suggested ratio 
of one to fifty or thereabouts. 

The direction of events for the future lies with the 
larger nations of the world for the smaller coun- 
tries must accept the standards of the leaders. To 
the oft repeated question "^^'here are the Leaders 
of Today 
would ask "\A'here is God' 

The colleges will build leaders for tomorrow only 
if the young men and women of toda}' study the 
problems that confront the world now. Economics 
students particularly should search out the causes 
of the depression and in a search for them remedies 
will be suggested. 

In commenting upon the present emergency plans 
for relief and world stabilization our caller empha- 
sized the need for permanent plans for the next 
several hundred years and not temporary ones to' 
suffice for a few years only. 

The A\'orld \'iew as we were permitted to come 
in contact with it through the conversation of Air. 
Alvarez is ample evidence by contrast of the isola- 
tionist policy of the United States. History will en- 
large our horizons and fame and fortune crown the 
efforts of those who today are able to see beyond 
national boundaries.

From Every Bucknellian — -"At One Dollar — Before June First" — The Alumni Fund 

for APRIL -MAY, 1933 

An Appeal To Bucknellians 

EVERY Bucknellian will be glad to register an approval of the activities of the new 
Bucknell. The President of our school, much the same as the President of the United 
States, is beset with many trying difficulties, and his energies tov\'ard making Bucknell 
a great University will go for nought unless he has the combined support of everj- element in 
the Bucknell Family. The Alumni of the school are its representatives in the world of 
education, business life, and professions. \\'e cannot afiford to forget the undertaking the 
new President has shouldered and must contribute both in thought and financial aid to 
the projects under way. 

Through the medium of the Alumni Alonthh" and by many personal letters, I do not 
want to urge, but remind you to make some personal sacrifice to better appreciate your con- 
tribution to Bucknell. Think of the joy President Raincy would receive by realizing that 
he had the active support of this Alumni group. I am going to ask each Alumnus to write him 
a few lines to assure him of their loyalty and backing in this new undertaking. In this 
same letter enclose a check or money order made out to the Alumni Fund. The result will 
be a great joy to yourself and a real service to the school — an institution to which you owe 
a debt that you can never repay in a financial way. 

Our effort is to double the Alumni Fund Contribution of last year. Can we depend 
on you? Alumni activities will be centered about Alumni Day, June 3rd. The idea proved 
popular last j'ear and this year we are looking for our largest crowd of old-timers. 

^^'ill be seeing you at Commencement.

President, The General Alumni Association 



■f^*i ■»-=;:•= 

This number of the ALUI\INI JNIONTHLY brings you the announce- 
ment of our forthcoming Commencement activities. It is our earnest hope 
that an unusually large number of the alumni will return for this occasion. 
Many of the classes are planning for their reunions. It is the fiftieth anni- 
versary for the Class of 1883. There are seven members of that class living. 
They are : Reverend Adam Beaver, Reverend William J. Coulston, Dr. Spencer 
B. Meeser, Reverend Aaron W. Puller, J\Ir. Charles E. Stein, Reverend William 
G. Watkins, and Mr. Elmer E. Wolfe. The University has e.xtended a special 
invitation to all of these members of the Class of '83 to be present as guests 
of the University. 

During the year that is closing the Facult}- and the Board of Trustees 
have made some significant reorganizations in the University, and have de- 
veloped some far-reaching plans for the future development of the University. 
It is our purpose to present these plans in as much detail as possible at this 
Commencement program. 

It will not be many years until we shall be celebrating our one hundredth 
anniversary. It is not too early to begin to make plans for that happy event. 
I should like very much to relate our developmental program with our plans 
for that celebration. I should be very happy, therefore, if the alumni at their 
meeting this year will discuss waj-s and means of cooperating with the Board 
of Trustees in developing a comprehensive program for the University which 
will become our major objectives to be realized in the years that intervene 
between now and our Centennial. Such a program, of which we shall all be 
conscious, will unify our purposes and our efforts, and will be a valuable 
stimulus to our activities on behalf of the University. Two years of relation- 
ship with Bucknell have convinced me that we have glorious opportunities 
before us. May we not begin now to organize ourselves to realize a maximum 
of these opportunities by the time of our one hundredth birthday? 

Yours for a Happ}- Commencement,

Dear Classmates: 

I am sending this communication through the 
columns of the Alumni Monthly with the hope that 
each of you will consider it in the same light that 
you would a personal letter. 

As all of you know, we held the ten-year reunion 
meeting of our class last June. At that meeting I 
was appointed chairman of a committee whose func- 
tion was to endeavor to place "22 on the list of Pa- 
trons of the University. This was thought to be a 
fitting class memorial, since the names of all Found- 
ers and Patrons are published in each annual 
catalog by action of the Board of Trustees. 

At that meeting our President, Finley Keech, 
stated that several thousand dollars had been left 
by our class, and it was voted to use this as a nu- 
cleus, in establishing a class fund through the reg- 
ular channels of the Alumni Association, which 
would be administered by them in their loans to 
worthy Seniors. This is an exceptionally splendid 
plan, as it makes the principal available to the Uni- 
versity when the money is loaned to students to pay 
college bills, and since the students must repay the 
principal with interest, usually within a year, the 
fund is not only perpetuated but is increased, i 
might add that the granting of student loans from 
the Alumni Fund is in the hands of a committee 
consisting of Comptroller Dayton L. Ranck, Regis- 
trar H. Walter Holter, and Alumni Secretary Alfred 
G. Stoughton, who require notes signed by responsi- 
ble endorsers, as well as by the students themselves. 

In looking up the records, I found that Finley 
Keech (who quoted from memory) had erred in his 
estimate of the amount and the disposition of the 
money left by our class. As a matter of fact we 
had $258.22 which was turned over to the general 
endowment fund in 1925, when the endowment drive 
was under way. During the past two years, not in- 
cluding 1932-33, the members of the class of 1922 
have given $149.00 to the Alumni fund which "Al" 
Stoughton says can be applied to our account. This 
credits us with a total of $407.22 contributed to our 
Alma Mater, leaving $592.78 to reach our goal of 

According to the Alumni office records, there 
were 141 graduating members of our class, and 91 
non-graduates. If everyone in the class were to 
contribute an average of one dollar yearly, we could 
easily go over the top before our fifteenth reunion 
meeting in June, 1937. Some of us, particularly in 
these times, are unable to contribute at all ; others 
can and some have contributed many times one dol- 
lar per year. It is the hope of our committee that 
each and every one of you will respond to whatever 
extent you are able. Even very small sums mount 
up in the aggregate. 

Make your contributions to ; A. G. Stoughton, 
Alumni Secretary, BUT BE SURE TO INDICATE 
FUND", otherwise they will automatically go into 
the General Alumni Fund and not be credited to 
our class. 

Let us endeavor to make the class of 1922 a 
Patron of the University by 1937. 

Sincerely yours, 



Bucknell men's and women's debating teams have 
just concluded a comprehensive schedule with pleas- 
ing results. The women's team continued their un- 
beaten record through the second season, while the 
men's teams broke even on decision debates, with 
all these except one being held on foreign platforms. 

Bucknell's debate on Japan's Policy in Manchuria 
was selected for publication by the national college 
debate publication, INTERCOLLEGIATE DE- 
BATES. Other topics debated by Bucknell were on 
the Cancellation of War Debts, The Federation of 
Labor as a Political Party, and the Influence of the 

For the first time Bucknell sent a women's team 
on a long trip to the Southwest, where debating is 
regarded as especially strong. The Bucknellians 
won four in ten debates on the trip, and were un- 
defeated, the other discussions being non-decision. 

Among the colleges met by Bucknell were Rut- 
gers, Pennsylvania, Bates, Colgate, W. and J., Rich- 
mond, Oklahoma, Texas State College for Women, 
Pittsburgh, Penn State, Fordham, Colby, Boston 
University, Da\^idson, Depauw, and Missouri. 

Two of this year's seniors, Aliss Marie Groff, and 
Charles Bidelspacher, have been on the varsity 
teams for four years. Three-year varsity debaters 
are Miss Guinaeth Johnston, Robert Cook, Frank- 
lin Cook, and Meyer Ginsberg. Sixteen men and six 
women participated in the intercollegiate debates. 
Arthur L. Brandon is faculty director of the teams. 



Establishment of a continuous graduate fellow- 
ship in plant genetics at Bucknell University by 
David Burpee, Philadelphia, well-known flower and 
vegetable seed grower and Bucknell Trustee has 
been announced by Mr. Burpee and Dr. Homer P. 
Raine}', president of Bucknell. 

The fellowship, which provides $500.00 a year plus 
tuition, will be established by Mr. Burpee primarily 
for the development of the scientific stud}' of flower 
seeds. Candidates for the fellowship may include 
graduates of Bucknell or of other universities. 

Although the fellowship runs continuously 
through several years, it has been planned to give 
each student working under it an opportunity to 
complete at least one job. Some of the tests will 
require six years to complete, while others will be 
finished in one, two, or thre^ years. 

Dr. William H. Eyster, professor of botany at 
Bucknell whose studies in the genetics of corn have 
attracted international attention, has been selected 
to direct the research under he Burpee Fellowship. 
Dr. Eyster is a former Guggenheim fellow in ge- 


Publication of the seventh annual volume of Buck- 
nell Verse, a collection of original poems by Buck- 
nell students, was accompanied by the announce- 
ment that five of the poems included in the book 
have been selected for the maunscript volume of 
poetry to be exhibited at the Century of Progress 
Exhibition in Chicago this summer.

President Homer P. Rainey has addressed a letter 
to the presidents of the alumni clubs in New York, 
Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, Reading, and 
Trenton asking for club cooperation on the problem 
of new students for 1933-34. 

The club officers are asked to consider an informal 
evening meeting to be addressed by a member of the 
facult)'' in outlining the new educational program at 
Bucknell. Prospective students and parents are to 
be invited to the meetings.

City of Brotherly Love will resound to the cheers 
of Bucknell alumni on the evening of May 26 ac- 
cording to plans laid by a committee of the Alumni 
Club of Philadelphia and \'icinity. A special menu 
has been prepared and Mr. Jens F. Larsen, Uni- 
versity Architect invited to speak. Notices for the 
dinner have been mailed to all members of the club. 
Alumni who happen to be in Philadelphia on Friday 
evening. May 26, are cordially invited to attend. 


Daily reports on enrolment for the 1933 Summer 
Session compared to similar figures for 1932 show 
a decided increase in the expected registration for 
the six weeks of academic work from July 5 to Aug- 
ust 15. 


The gratis services of The Teacher Placement 
Bureau are offered to alumni in executive educa- 
tional positions according to a recent statement by 
Professor Frank G. Davis, '11, Director of the Bu- 
reau. ;Many Bucknell trained teachers from the past 
several classes graduated by the University are 
equipped and trained for teaching special subjects. 
Complete records of all graduates are maintained by 
the Bureau. Bucknell men and women in executive 
positions in the school world are urged to consult 
the Bureau when in need of teachers.

The newly organized Mothers Club of the Kappa 
Sigma fraternit}^ held a book tea at the chapter 
house on University Avenue, Wednesda}^ afternoon, 
April 5. Mrs. Albert \V. Johnson is president of the 
Club. The Mothers Club idea is new on the Bucknell 
campus, though many fraternities, particularlj- in 
the middle and far west have active organizations. 
The major function of the Mothers Club in practic- 
ally all fraternities is that of a sympathetic group 
of women interested in the house both from the 
standpoint of the Alumni and the active chapter. 
The membership of the club is made up of mothers 
of boys in the chapter and wives and mothers of 
alumni. The present Worthy Grand Master of the 
fraternity, Oliver J. Decker, '99, after visiting many 
of the one hundred and eight chapters of Kappa 
Sigma is deeply interested and endorses heartily 
both House Mothers and JMothers Clubs. 

At the meeting the first Wednesday of April, it 
was decided to meet at the house the first Wednes- 
day of each month. Dues in all the clubs are nom- 
inal, but there will be none at all for the present in 
the new club, ^^'ednesday, May 3, Mrs. Oliver J. 
Decker entertained the club at tea in the chapter 
house from three until five. An invitation was ex- 
tended to Kai)pa Sigma women from surrounding 

Those attending the first meeting were : Mrs. C. 
Arthur Lindemann, Mrs. Donald Korth, Mrs. Neal 
Baker, Mrs. Wm. Leiser, Mrs. A. A. Ho.v, Mrs. Wil- 
liam Windsor of Milton, Mrs. Oliver J- Decker of 
\\'illiamsport, and Mrs. Symington, the house 


Mr. Robert J. Parmenter. '14, was elected Presi- 
dent of The Bucknell Alumni Club of Chicago, 111., 
at a recent meeting of the club. Mr. Stephen F. Dim- 
lich, '20, was elected Secretary. The meeting was 
called in honor of President Homer P. Rainey who 
spoke at length on the new campus plans. Mr. H. 
\V. Holter, '24, Registrar, was also in attendance. 
Both President and Registrar v\'ere attending meet- 
ings in Chicago at the time of the alumni dinner. 


Mr. W. W. Wilcox, '04, Mr. John Curnow, '32, 
and Mr. \\"ilmer Grulich, '32, have been employed

is visiting High Schools throughout the eastern 
section of Pennsylvania while Mr. Curnow is travel- 
ling through the anthracite region and Mr. Grulich

of the celebration of the sixtieth anniversary of 
graduation. Mr. John B. Cook of Philadelphia is the 
only other living member of this group. 

"The Fifty-Fifth"

members of this class which numbered thirteen at 
graduation fifty-five years ago. The survivors are 
Dr. Joseph E. Perry of Brookline, Mass., Dr. George 
E. Nichols of Philadelphia and Re\'. \V. K. Lord of

"The Forty-Fifth" 

Invitations to Reunion have been sent to all the 
survivors of this class by Classmate Clipman of 
Lewisburg. He expects to entertain at least a ma- 
jority of the even dozen survivors of that day in 
June forty-five years ago. 

"The Fortieth" 

Five members of this class which numbered 
twelve at graduation survive. The Class Reunion 
will be held at Alumni Headquarters Building, Sat- 
urday afternoon, June 3, 1933.

the first reunion of the class since 1923 when sev- 
enteen members dined together on June 9 at the 
Commencement week of that year. 

"The Thirtieth" 

This class captured honors with the best reunion 
in 1928 at the time of their twenty-fifth anniversary. 
Letters are being mailed now by a local committee 
composed of Professor Rhodes and Attorneys Stein- 
inger and Marsh. 

"The Twenty-Fifth" 

Professor Paul Stolz is inviting the class to "Come 
Home". The reunion five years ago at The College 
Inn made great plans for this big "Twenty-Fifth". 

"The Twentieth" 

This "unluck}- number" class has made several 
false starts toward reunions on and off schedule. 
Alumni Headquarters is the place this year on June 
3 with Open House all day. 

"The Fifteenth" 

There are almost enough brothers of this class 
living in Lewisburg to stage a reunion any time. 
Out-of-towners are needed to swell the crowd with 
wives, husbands and children. 

"The Tenth" 

This year will be the second attempt of '23 to 
stage a "Come Back". Five years ago the results 
were almost negligible. Hopes are higher for this 
3^ear on June 3. 

"The Fifth" 

The first reunion! What will the harvest be? 
Come back and see ! Recruits needed for a good 
turnout of the class. 

"The Annual" 

All brothers and sisters not members of any reg- 
ular reunion will gather under the banner of "1492" 
at Lleadquarters on Saturday afternoon, June 3.

From Every Bucknellian — "At Least One Dollar — Before .Tune First"— -The Alumni Fund 

for APRIL-MAY, 1933 


The following little story from real life should be read by every alumnus of every college in America today. It 

is a story of TODAY. 
Acknowledgement is due A. E. B. Jr. Many thanks! — The Editor. 

Dear Al— 

You and our class agent have been trying to 
chisel contributions out of us guys for a long time. 
I am now writing to tell you that you're a couple of 

bush-leaguers. The other day 

crashed in on me and the sales talk he gave me made 
your most impassioned appeal sound like a lullaby. 
That bird is GOOD. He had mc groggy. When I 
came to, I was so much impressed by the experi- 
ence that I called a stenographer and tried to recon- 
struct the fight talk gave me. I en- 
close a cop3', as nearly as I can recall it, with the 
suggestion that you try it out on the recalcitrant. 

It all began when I said, politely but firmly, "I'm 
broke. I can't do a thing for Bucknell this year." 
What follows is 's reply : 

''All right, brother. You're just the fellow I want 
to talk to. I'm perfectly ready to believe your first 
statement. I'm broke myself. We're all broke. So 
I'll take your word for that, and think none the less 
of you. That's the beauty of the Alumni Fund plan 
— you set your own figure from zero on up and we'll 
cheerfully accept anything or nothing, if it's what 
you consider right for you. But that second state- 
ment doesn't sound convincing — you 'can't do a 
thing for Bucknell this year.' Why, doggone you, 
every one of us can do something — and I don't 
mean money either. 

"Of course, we're trying to raise money for Buck- 
nell. Why hesitate to admit such a perfectly obvi- 
ous fact? The Alumni Fund is totaled up in dollars. 
That's the only way it can be totaled. But there are 
a whale of a lot of contributions made every year 
that help a whole lot, although they don't show up, 
directly, in the dollar column. So how about con- 
tributing to Bucknell's income in another way — 

persuade some likely looking youngster to enter 
Bucknell next fall. He'll be paying his tuition and 
3'ou'll be making a contribution to Bucknell's income 
with somebody else's money. You don't know any 
prospective students? Well, you do know where 
the high school is, don't you ? How about going 
around there some day and getting acquainted with 
the principal? Tell him you can get him a swell 
reel of movies about Bucknell to show his pupils 
and maybe a speaker from the Bucknell staff to ad- 
dress his assembly. You don't want to do that? All 
right, how about volunteering to help your class 
agent round uj) some other alumni in support of the 
Fund? Flaven't got the nerve? Well then, how 
about looking around a bit to try to find a job open 
that you could tell the Alumni Secretary about so 
he could pass the dope on to some other alumnus 
who needs work? Need a job yourself, eh? Well, 
that's an item for your class column in the Monthly. 
You certainly can write a little squib about yourself 
and send it to The Alumni Secretary. He'll be 
tickled to hear from you and so will all the fellows 
who read it in the Monthly. And you'll have done 
something for Bucknell because you've helped ce- 
ment the interest of your friends and yourself. 

"Now what do you say? Can you do anything for 
Bucknell this year or not?" 

Af this point our cnrrcsjxjiiilciit, lulling concluded bis 
reconstruction of the "sales talk," ended his narrative. Onr 
native curiosity teas such, however, that ive wrote hint a 
note asking luhat answer he had made to the final ciucstion. 
Oiir note came hack with the penciled notation: 

"I ga\'e him a clieck for $50 and told hini to get 
the hell out of my office before I gave him the 


The annual Mothers' Day celebration on the 
Campus was held on Saturday, May 13, with Miss 
Fannie Wood, daughter of Thomas Wood, Esq., '05 
and Mrs. Eva Stoner Wood, '05, of Muncy, and 
Kennard Lewis, of Philadelphia, seniors, as co- 
chairmen of the day's program. 

Among the feature events of the occasion were 
the annual May Day pageant on the lower campus 
and the annual Interfraternity Track Meet in Me- 
morial Stadium. The Mothers' Day banquet was 
served in the women's dining hall Saturday evening 
at 7 o'clock with Dr. Homer P. Rainey as the prin- 
cipal speaker. The mothers met the members of the 
faculty and administration at an informal reception 
in Hunt Hall at 9 :30 o'clock Saturday evening. 

Parents who arrived on the campus Friday en- 
joyed the Cap and Dagger play, "The Queen's Hus- 
band," a sophisticated comedy by Robert Sherwood, 
presented in the Lewisburg High School that eve-

Among recent prominent campus visitors Lowell 
Thomas, radio newscaster, attracted wide attention. 
He appeared as the closing feature of the Bucknell 
Artist's Course program. Mr. Thomas was enter- 
tained at the Kappa Sigma Fraternity House by the 
members of the chapter and prominent alumni, in- 
cluding Trustee Oliver J. Decker, Esq., '99, of Wil- 
liamsport. National President of the Fraternity. Mr. 
Thomas is a member of the Denver Universit)'' 
Chapter of Rappa Sigma. 


Dr. Paul W. Gates, assistant professor of history 
at Bucknell has been awarded a fellowship by the 
Social Science Research Council for research study 
in 1933-34. He is one of a group of 19 professors 
from the leading universities in the country who will 
receive fellowships from the Council for next year. 
He expects to secure a one-year leave of absence 
from Bucknell and will study at Brookings Institute 
in Washington.

Editor^s Corner 

THE cover design is made from a 
photo taken from the roof of East 
College. The camera was pointed 
across the new campus toward the 
stadium which appears in the back- 
ground. To the right center of the 
photo will rise the new buildings plan- 
ned for the greater Bucknell. 

COMMENCEMENT was a great 
success and we have never seen 
so many young alumni on the 
campus at any previous affair. Every- 
one had a fine time and Saturday was 
a red letter alumni day — you folks 
who missed it this year should plan 
ahead to be with us next year. 

THE Corporation Dinner which 
closes thaCommencement Program 
was in the nature of an experi- 
ment this year with an admission price 
charged for the first time. More than 
one hundred and fifty guests were 
present at the dinner to hear the hon- 
orary degree folks say "Thank You" 
to Bucknell. 

DR. GILBERT PEREZ, '07, re- 
sponded to his introduction by 
Dr. Leo Rockwell at the dinner 
with a most interesting informal talk 
about his work in the Philippines and 
expressed the thought that the degree 
Bucknell had given him was meant 
also for the hundreds of teachers from 
this country who had gone to the is- 
lands to make a new nation. 

MORE alumni gave money to the 
alumni fund this year (depres- 
sion?) than last year or the 
year before. Although the average 
gift was slightly smaller it is proof 
of the soundness of the fund principle 
when the number of donors increases 
each year. 

SIXTY-FOUR years apart — yet 
much alike are Edmund Wells, 
'69, of Beaufort, S. C, and nephew 
C. Edmund Wells, '33, Pottstown, Pa. 
Their photo appears on another page 
of this issue and despite the white 
hair of '69, both had a good time at 
Commencement and both are loyal

PRESIDENT and Mrs. Rainey were 
welcome guests at Alumni Day 
festivities. T'hey were adopted by 
the '13 gang and everyone was glad to 
meet them. We wish to acknowledge 
here, as well as officially in another 
column, the gift of Mildred Collins 
Rainey (Mrs. Homer Price) to the 
Alumni Fund. 

IT is not too early for class officers 
to get busy on reunions for 1934. 
That means all classes with num- 
erals ending in four or nine! 1924 is 
already working with a steering com- 
mittee looking to next June. 

BUCKNELL ventures into a new 
field with the Junior College at 
Wilkes-Barre. It will be a boon 
to the community and help to spread 
the fair name of old Bucknell. From 
all reports the new college is meeting 
with an excellent reception and more 
students than had been anticipated are 
registering for the first year of col- 
lege work. 

THIS number of the magazine 
brings to a close volume seventeen 
and terminates the record of the 
academic year 1932-33. We have en- 
joyed no end the various comments 
of our readers and bow humbly with 
profound thanks for the compliments 
that have reached us on the magazine 
work. It is only one part of the varied 
and far reaching efforts of the alumni 
organization. With a continuing high 
reader interest we shall go still further 
in the publishing of a fine magazine 
for Bucknellians! See you all in the 



June, 1933 

No. 7 


THE second consecutive week-end Commence- 
ment program surpassed in interest and attend- 
ance any Commencement of the past ten years. 
The three days of celebration, Saturday, Sunday and 
Monday, June 3, 4, and 5, were marked by well 
planned and enthusiastically received events. Alum- 
ni attendance on Saturday reached a new high in 
alumni office records with more than two hundred 
registrants. From many viewpoints the eighty- 
third annual Commencement of Bucknell University 
was outstanding. 

Alumni ^'isitors were recei\ed at Alumni Head- 
quarters beginning Friday afternoon. Interest was 
unusually high in Class Reunions. Attendance fig- 
ures at the various lunches and dinners showed the 
forty-five year class, 1888, with the largest percent- 
age of members present. Refreshments were served 
the visitors to Alumni Headquarters from two to 
four Saturday afternoon by the members of the fac- 
ulty of the Department of Music. Fraternity ban- 
quets Saturday evening were well attended and an 
enthusiastic audience enjoyed Cap and Dagger's 
presentation of "The Queen's Husband." 

President Rainey challenged the graduates with 
a strong baccalaureate sermon Sunday morning. 
The Lewisburg Baptist Church was crowded with 
parents and alumni and the hooded and gowned 
members of faculty and graduating class. The sym- 
phony concert Sunday afternoon on the Women's 
Campus was thoroughly enjoyed by the audience 
that in former years gathered at the twilight band 
concerts. The oratorio Sunday evening completed 
a fine Sunday program, marked with dignity and 

One of the most impressive ceremonies of recent 
years on the campus was held as a part of the Pres- 
ident's Reception Monday afternoon when Walter 
L. Hill, Esq.. '98, of Scranton, presented to the Uni- 
versity a portrait of his father, the late Dr. David 
Jayne Hill, '74, former president of The University 
at Lewisburg and world renowned diplomat. 

The Commencement exercises, the tenth consecu- 
tive- outdoor program, were threatened by overhang- 
ing clouds but unmarred by any rain. The impend- 
ing storm broke more than an hour after the close 
of the exercises and just after all the dinner guests 
had assembled within the protection of the Dining 

Dean Kenneth B. Alurdock of Harvard College 
delivered the address from the commencement plat- 
form to the graduates assembled under the oaks in 
front of Hunt Hall. The speaker stressed the cul- 
tural benefits of education and admonished the grad- 
uates to consider Commencement as the beginning 
of true education and not the end of it. President 
Rainey awarded degrees to one hundred and eighty 
seniors, twelve post graduates, and one professional. 
These with the four honorary degrees conferred 
brought the total to one hundred and ninety-seven. 

The annual Corporation Dinner in the Dining 
Hall attracted some one hundred and fifty guests. 
President Rainey presided and introduced the vari- 
ous after dinner speakers. The evening and the 

Commencement program were officially terminated 
by the singing of Auld Lang Syne. 


IN the preceding number of this publication a let- 
ter to the Class of 1922 was published over the 
signature of Dr. W. N. Lowry. A mistake oc- 
curred in the typesetting which made quite a differ- 
ence as the word thousands was used where hun- 
dreds had been intended. The class fund referred 
to was audited in regular form and found correct. 
^^'e are sorry for the mistake that might ha\^e caused 
some questions in the minds of members of 1922 and 
make due and humble apology for a purely mechan- 
ical error. May the Class of 1922 by their gifts lo 
the class fund rectify our unintentional error (prob- 
ably caused by optimism) and swell the fund from 
"hundreds" to "Thousands". 


0.\E i)f the finest gifts received by Bucknell in 
recent years was presented at Commencement 
time by Walter Liddell Hill, Esq., '98, of 
Scranton when he gave a portrait of his father, the 
late Dr. David Jayne Hill, '74, former President of 
the Lhiiversity at Lewisburg, and world renowned 

The portrait completes the collection of past pres- 
idents of the LIniversity. It is hoped that in the new 
campus development plan ample pro^"ision will be 
made for the appropriate hanging of the \aluable 
portraits of all of the former presidents of Bucknell. 


THE Class Gift from the graduating Class of 
1933 to the Alumni Fund was a lovely gesture 
to the less fortunate members of the class who 
were financially embarrassed and unable to pay 
college bills. The money from this class fund which 
amounts to more than twelve hundred dollars was 
loaned to classmates on the Alumni Fund Senior 
Loan Plan established by the Class of 193L Both 
1931 and 1932 set the example for 1933 and the new 
alumni class followed through handsomely. The 
class gift credits e^"ery individual member of the 
group with a gift to the alumni fund and invests the 
class money in a great cause. The alumni saluce 
you members of 1933 and bid j'ou welcome as mem- 
bers of the finest alumni group in the world — all 
Bucknellians ! 


Just as the Monthly goes to press, we learn 
that a decision has been made to preserve Old 
Main. The plans call for erecting a temporary 
roof over the whole structure, and remodelling 
the wings into modern dormitories. The cen- 
tral section of the building will be converted 
into a Student Union. 

Contracts for the construction of the first 
building of the Literature group were signed 
on June 23rd. Work on these two building 
projects will be started at once.

"The Challenge of The New Era" 

Baccalaureate Sermon by President Rainey 

^^T F the next generation of the world does not go 
I Communistic or Nasi, it will only be because 
the youths of America and the rest of the 
world can offer the world a more \-ital and satis- 
factory substitute for Communism and Nazism,'' 
warned President Homer Price Rainey in his Bacca- 
laureate sermon to the senior class on Sunday morn- 
ing, June 4. 

Speaking on the toi)ic "The Challenge of the New 
Era," Dr. Rainey outlined a five point platform or 
program for a "real Christian youth movement for 
the next generation." He stressed the fact that 
America, as a nation, mo\'es by a series of impulses. 
Today we have reached the bottom or lowest point 
of force in the most recent propelling motive. It is 
with regard to what comes next that the Bucknell 
executive outlined his program to the assembled 

"There Was No King" 

The President took for his text the last verse of 
the Book of Judges: "In those days there was no 
king in Israel : every man did that which was right 
in his own eyes." 

Because we have no one to command, because we 
are vv'ithout a spiritual power, chaos reigns over 
mankind, Dr. Rainey pointed out as the situation 
in the world at the jjresent time. "All imperatives, 
all commands, all standards, e\-en the gold standard, 
are in a state of suspension. Life today is in a per- 
iod of interregnum — an empty space between two 
periods — that which was, and that which is to be." 

Scorning those who would lie idle, awaiting im- 
provement of its own volition. President Rainey 
said, "This is no time to look backward. .'Kn old era 
is passing and a new one is struggling' to be born. 
This is no time to lie on our beds and dream dreams, 
and to speak in platitudes and to sound old shib- 
boleths. A whole social order is crumbling before 
our eyes." Because of this crumbling, America has 
become disorientated. The man of this country is 
undergoing this process of disorientation because 
"he no longer knows by what star he is to guide his 

"The Old Order Passeth" 

Painting the picture of the utter confusion that 
is about us, he said, "Let us be specific. Consider 
the battle that is waging over capitalism. Only a 
short decade ago it was little short of high treason 
to question the sacredness of the capitalistic system. 
Today it is being challenged in every quarter and 
the mass of men are not so sure as they were ten 
years ago that the traditional system of capitalism 
is the best type of economic organization. Consider 
the present upheaval in the governmental systems 
of the world. Fifteen years ago no one believed that 
the present dictatorships In Russia, Italy, and Ger- 
many could be possible. And certainly in our own 
country no one dared question the eternal rightness 
of democracy. Think of what we have witnessed 
from Washington in the last two months. We be- 
lieve what has happened only because we have seen 
it v.'ith our own eyes. Consider again the collapse 

of moral standards and the present conflict over 
moral values. Go into any modern art gallery and 
experience the shock that awaits you. Talk with 
almost anyone you meet who will discuss religion 
and theology honestly, and observe the vagueness 
of their religious concepts, and the instability of 
their faith." 

Need a "Vital Sensibility" 

Having established the fact that we are entering 
a new era. President Rainey next emphasized the 
need for a new "vital sensibility." "Our world needs 
a new vital sensibility," he declared. "The time de- 
mands a new concept — a new motive — as vital, dy- 
namic, and revolutionary as that provided by Martin 
Luther in order that the creative powers of this gen- 
eration may be released. The supreme challenge to 
this generation of youths is to find that new vital 
sensibility and to interpret it in such definite and 
concrete terms that it may be understood by the 
masses of the population." 

In discussing the factors comprising the new chal- 
lenge. Dr. Rainey pointed out the realization of re- 
sponsibility, the discovery of the vital sensibility, 
international understanding and cooperation, and 
the need for a new concept of religion as the points 
of greatest importance. 

". . . live as Christ lived," implored President 
Rainey. "A serious and sincere attempt on our part 
to live as He lived will turn the world upside down. 
Such an attempt will provide the greatest vital sen- 
sibility that any society has ever experienced. It 
will provide a revolutionary impulse of tremendous 
proportions. Christ, Himself, was the greatest revo- 
lutionist the world has ever known. Dare we live 
as He lived? Dare we love as He loved? Dare we 
forgive as He forgave? Dare we go the second 
mile? Dare we resist not evil? Dare we love our 
neighbors as ourselves? Dare we place the supreme 
worth of the individual above all other values? Such 
courage to live is the vital sensibility that this gen- 
eration so sorely needs." 

Program for Next Generation 

"In conclusion," President Rainey said, "I ven- 
ture to submit a program or platform for a real 
Christian youth movement for the next generation. 
It would include the following; 

"1. We believe in the God revealed by Jesus. We 
propose to follow the leadership of Jesus in discov- 
ering for ourselves the true nature and purpose of 
God. We demand a .religion that is vital, positive, 
and dynamic. We do not believe in a religion of 
negations. We believe that religion is a vital area 
of human experiences, and we propose to explore 
that field in a positive, dynamic, and creative way 
in an honest and intelligent search for its spiritual 
values. W'e believe that there are positive laws of 
spiritual growth — that these laws have been fully 
detailed for us in the life and teachings of Jesus — 
that we will build up our own religious creed out of 
the tested experiences that come to us as a result of 
a practical application of these laws of creative 






for JUNE, 1933 

"2. We believe in the supreme worth of the indi- 
vidual. The greatest value in the world is a human 
life — a living personality, created in the image of 
God and destined for immortality. We will, there- 
fore, strive to create a society in which the supreme 
worth of the individual shall be given chief concern. 
We will not sponsor and support a social and eco- 
nomic system which corrupts and degrades men. 

"3. Believing as we do in the supreme worth of 
the individual, we believe that all racial and national 
barriers should be obliterated, and that we should 
strive for a world societ}' in which the principles of 
Christian ethics will be the basis of all laws and 
government. A\'e will not fight nor murder our fel- 
lowmen. \A'e will seek by pacific means only to 
settle our differences. We will not resort to violence. 
We will follow the principle of love, and when that 
fails we will suffer humiliation rather than forsake 

"4. We propose to inaugurate the principles of 
Christian ethics and morality into our citizenship. . . 

"5. We demand an educational program that will 
provide for the fullest type of self-realization, and 
one that places the ennoblement and enrichment of 
life above all other values " 


Four new instructors were added to the faculty, 
one present member w^as retired, and another's resig- 
nation was accepted at the June meeting of the

EXTOLLING the ability "to think straight" in 
order that the graduate may have "the chance 
to make Commencement really Commence- 
ment, to begin education, not end it, on leaving col- 
lege." Dr. Kenneth B. Murdock. dean of the faculty 
of arts and sciences at Harvard L^niversit)', delivered 
the principal address to 180 Bucknell seniors at the 
eighty-third annual Commencement exercises 

"Let's begin by asking what Commencement is," 
Dean IMurdock suggested. ". . . Commencement 
must be for anyone \vho is alive at all, the beginning 
of something — the beginning of trouble, of mature 
life, of a career — of anything you like. The point I 
should like to make is that Commencement is first 
the beginning of a testing of your college work 
Avhich will go on throughout your lives and be a 
testing far more rigid than any examinations you 
have found in college." 

"Education is something too great ever to be ac- 
complished in school or college ; the educated men I 
know are those who have learned more than any 
school or college teaches : who have lived as well as 
studied ; who have taken the material and tools given 
them in college and have then for themselves carved 
an education out of life. You will be spoken of, 
because you have taken a degree, as educated ; if 
you believe that. I am sure your education does not 
deserve its name," Dean Murdock warned. 

Deploring the fact that 3-early the number of col- 
lege graduates increase, yet apparently the number 
of men who are "doing good for society" does not 
greatly increase in proportion to the alleged ad- 
vances in the machinery of education. Dr. ]\Iurdock 
said, "The colleges, therefore, need to justify them- 
selves if their grants from public funds or their gifts 
from private donors are to continue, if students are 
to go on paying tuition fees for the privilege of at- 
tending them. There could be no better justification 
than for their graduates to prove in their lives what 
the colleges have given them." 

". . . The task of the college graduate who wants 
to profit by college and at the same time to have it 
profit through him is the task of learning how to 
use what it oft'ers. And that task, it seems to me. 
involves first of all learning how to think." 

Warning against the adoption of the plans urged 
by some who believe that professional training 
should be begun in colleges. Dean Murdock stated 
"The difficulty is obvious the moment it is thought 
about. No science worth knowing about, no educa- 
tional theory, no political system is proof against 
change and no one has devised, and no one will de- 
vise, ways of giving knowledge in college which will, 
just as knowledge, help much as soon as new knov^'l- 
edge replaces it." 

The alwajs-popular topic, that of brilliance in 
college meaning brilliance in after-life, was brought 
to the senior's attention with these words : "And I 
think the relation between good work in college and 
good work later is as close as it is, smiply because 
good work in college tends at least to indicate ability 
to think — and it is ability to think straight which 
gives one the chance to make Commencement really 
Commencement, to begin education, not to end it, 
on leaving college." 



The feature event of The President's Reception 
Tvlonday afternoon in Hunt Hall was the presenta- 
tion to Bucknell of a portrait of the late David 
Jayne Hill. '74, former president of the U^niversity 
at Lewisburg by his son Walter L. Hill, Esq., '98, 
of Scranton. The event v^-as marked with dignity 
and simplicity and was witnessed by the more than 
one hundred guests at the reception. 

]\Ir. ^^'alter Hill was introduced by President 
Rainey as the donor of the portrait. Mr. Hill in 
his presentation remarks expressed the thought 
that his gift of the picture of his father to Bucknell 
was in the manner of a "homecoming" as Dr. Hill 
had loved Bucknell and Lewisburg. Mr. Hill also 
expressed the hope that future generations could 
look through the canvas to see the moral height 
of the man, and that the picture would ever be an 
inspiration to the youth of each generation, and 
that they might adopt the high ideals which he 

President Rainc}' then called upon Dr. C. A. 
Soars, '88. a member of the last class to graduate 
from the old Universit}- under Dr. Hill's presi- 
dency. Dr. Soars spoke eloquently in his prayer of 
the great stature of Dr. Hill as a leader and Chris- 
tian gentleman and invoked blessings upon Buck- 
nell in the years to come. 

The portrait was then unveiled by three-year-old 
Walter L. Hill, HI, great grandson of Dr. Hill, 
and son of Walter L. Hill, Esq., '23, also of Scran- 

The assemblage then viewed the portrait, a three- 
quarter length study of Dr. Hill, painted at the 
time of his ambassadorship to the Netherlands by 
Anders Zoom, the famous Swedish artist. The 
picture is a copy of the original that hangs in the 
Corcoran Gallerv at ^^'ashington. D. C. 


One of the features of the Bucknell Commence- 
ment program was the reunion and luncheon of the 
alumnae, including the graduates of the old Insti- 
tute, the first of the units for women's training at 
what used to be the L^niversity at Lewisburg. 

One hundred and one women, probably the larg- 
est number ever to attend, were present at the 
luncheon. Distinguished aniong the number was 
one graduate of the class of 1863, Mrs. Martha 
Meixel ^^'olfe of Lewisburg. One member of- the 
class of 1873, Ella Hallowell Sagebeer, also re- 
turned. The fifty year class had an especially in- 
teresting reunion with five of the eleven living 
members present. 

The class of '83 was in the Institute when the 
late David Jayne Hill was President, and was the 
first to receive the diploma without the word "fe- 
male" engraved on it. The fi\"e who were present 
at Commencement are ]\Irs. Anna Lowry, Scran- 
ton: Mrs. Laura Baker Everett. Pittsburgh (Bell- 
wood) ; Mrs. Jennie McLaughlin Follmer, Lewis- 
burg; Mrs. Katherine Dill Brown, ^^'ilmington, 
Delaware; and Dr. Ruth Tustin. Bloomsburg. 

for JUNE, 1933 


BUCKNELL conferred honorary degrees upon 
four outstanding people in as many fields of 
endeavor at the 1933 Commencement. The 
recipients represented cultural education, vocational 
education, medicine and the ministry. 

Dr. Kenneth B. Alurdock is one of the youngest 
college administrators in the countrj'. Not quite 38 
3'ears old, he has already made an enviable name for 
himself in the academic world. He received his 
Bachelor of Arts degree from Harvard in 1916, and 
from 1919 to 1922 he was Assistant Dean of Har- 
vard. He spent the 3'ears from 1923 to 1926 as an 
instructor in English at his Alma Mater. He was 
an assistant professor from 1926 to 1930, an asso- 
ciate professor from 1930 to 1931, and last year was 
appointed Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. 
Dr. IMurdock has received an A.M. and a Ph.D. from 
Harvard, an Litt.D. from Middlebury College, and 
an L.H.D. from Trinit}' College. He is a member 
of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and 
also belongs to numerous other educational groups. 

He was presented by Professor W. H. Coleman 
for his degree as follows : 

Kenneth Ballard jXlurdock of Boston and Har- 
vard, identified since his graduation with that an- 
cient seat of learning — for a considerable period as 
a member of the Department of English and more 
recently as Dean of the Faculty of Arts and 
Sciences; biographer of Increase JMather, foremost 
American Puritan ; editor of and contributor to 
learned periodicals ; a brilliant scholar, a capable 
administrator, a true humanist, he is a t}'pical 
representati^"e of the aristocratic New England aca- 
demic tradition adapting itself to the educational 
aims of an ever-widening democracy. In recognition 
of the qualities he so well exemplifies. Kenneth Bal- 
lard Murdock is recommended for the degree of 
Doctor of Laws. 

Gilbert S. Perez, '07, 
has spent most of his 
life since graduation in 
the Philippine Islands 
where he has contrib- 
uted much to bettering 
educational conditions 
there. Perez took grad- 
uate work at the Uni- 
versity of Chicago for 
two years, but since 
1909 has been actively 
engaged with the Bu- 
reau of Education of 
the Philippine Islands. 
His first position was 
that of a supervising 
principal. In 1913, he 
became Industrial Sup- 
ervisor of the Province 
of Bohol. In 1917, he was elected Industrial Super- 
visor of the Province of Tayabas. Since 1927 he has 
been Superintendent of vocational education in the 
islands. Perez has done much in the educational 
field, effecting improvements in the schools of the 

Gilbert S. Perez, '07 

Philippines b}- his ability as an organizer and also 
writing a number of useful books. 

He was presented by Dr. L. L. Rockwell as fol- 
lows : 

Gilbert Somers Perez of Manila ; one of the edu- 
cational pioneers of the Philippine Islands, who has 
devoted almost a quarter of a century to the cultural 
advancement of the Filipino race : Superintendent of 
A'ocational Education for the Islands which thirty- 
five }-ears ago passed from the dominion of old Spain 
to the enlightened protectorship of the 3'oung Re- 
public of the \\'est : wielder of a versatile pen from 
which have come numerous monographs on educa- 
tion, a study of the Danish folk schools, and a vol- 
ume of Oriental poems ; a specialist in numismatics. 
In token of his professional achievements, his cul- 
tural interests, and his humanitarian services, Gil- 
bert Somers Perez is cited for the honorar\- degree 
of Doctor of Pedagogy. 

Dr. Mary M. Wolfe 

is perhaps one of Buck- 
nell's best known alum- 
nae. After her gradua- 
tion here in 1896, Dr. 
\\^olfe studied at the 
Universit}' of Alichi- 
gan where she received 
her :\I.D. in 1899. The 
following year she was 
given her license to 
practice medicine in 
Pennsylvania. From 
1901 to 1909, Dr. Wolfe 
was chief physician of 
the W'omen's Depart- 
ment of the Norris- 
town State Hospital. In 
1913 she was appointed 
to the Board of Trus- 
tees of the institution now known as "The Laurelton 
State ATllage." She became secretary of the Board 
in 1914, and the following year was chosen as Sup- 
erintendent of the institution. During her 18 years 
as superintendent. Dr. Wolfe has built up the insti- 
tution, until today it represents an investment of 
$1,500,000, caring for 660 beneficiaries in residence 
and 75 on parole. The village toda\- is ranked as 
one of the leading institutions of its kind in America. 

She was presented by Dr. Mary Harris as fol- 
lows : 

Mary Moore Wolfe, M.D.. eminent daughter of 
Bucknell — graduate of the University' and a rela- 
ti\e of its founder; 'since 1915, Superintendent of 
"Laurelton State Village." one of the notable insti- 
tutions of its type in this country ; American dele- 
gate to the International Congress of ^Mental and 
Nervous Diseases ; in vision and resourcefulness, in 
professional skill and administrative capacity an 
honor to her sex ; in an age of specialists she has 
taken a liberal attitude toward the important prob- 
lems to which she has dedicated herself. Because 
of her inherent breadth of outlook and her construc- 
tive contribution to human 'vvelfare. she is recom- 
mended for the degree of Doctor of Science. 

Dr. Mary M. Wolfe, '96 


Dr. Burton C. Barrett 

Reverend Burton C. 
Barrett has had a dis- 
tinguished career as a 
pastor. He has had 
charges in Syracuse, N. 
Y., Oil City, Pa., and 
Williamsport. He was 
pastor of the First Bap- 
tist Church in Wil- 
Hamsport for seven 
years, resigning from 
his post last year when 
he was chosen Execu- 
tive Secretary of the 
Pennsylvania Baptist 
Convention. Rev. Bar- 
rett has already dem- 
onstrated rare ability 
for organization and 
executive direction in 
his present position. He has supervision over the 
activities of 800 Baptist churches with a combined 
membership of 200,000 and 780 ministers in service. 
He was presented by Professor C. M. Bond as 
follows :

of the Gospel, who has attracted the attention of the 
Baptists of our Commonwealth by his human qual- 
ities, his personal initiative, and his spiritual states- 
manship ; terse and cogent preacher; builder of 
churches ; recently chosen Executive Secretary of 
the Pennsylvania Baptist Con\-ention. Because re- 
ligion and education have gone together since the 
earliest days of the Republic, this University — a 
citadel of truth — ever mindful of the power of high 
ideals and ever eager to honor individuals whose 
lives are guided by the principles of truth and jus- 
tice, recommends Burton Clauson Barrett for the 
degree of Doctor of Divinity. 


Mendelssohn's "St. Paul Oratorio" was presented 
by the department of music at the Baptist Church 
Sunday night, June 3, with Professor Paul G. Stolz 
'08, as conductor. 

The program included several solo selections and 
the rendition of other numbers by the mixed chorus 
and Glee Club of Bucknell and the Choral Society 
of Dickinson Seminary. Dr. Homer P. Rainey pro- 
nounced both the invocation and the benediction. 

Four alumni were selected to sing the solo parts 
in the oratorio. They were : 

Marion Campbell Wilcox '24, soprano ; Carolyn 
Hunt Mahai¥ey '25, alto; Stephen Fraley Puff '17, 
tenor; Albert \\'eidensaul '29, bass. 

Chorus : Mixed Chorus and Glee Club of Buck- 
nell ; Choral Society of Dickinson Seminary; Organ- 
ist: Melvin Le Mon; Pianists: Ruth Hlavaty and 
Harold Richey ; Conductor : Professor Paul G. Stolz ; 
Coach of mixed chorus : Grace Jenkins. 


ALUMNI DAY on Saturday rallied a good 
crowd in 1932 and a better one in 1933. This 
year the permanence of Saturday as Alumni 
Day of Commencement Week with the program 

built around that day was assured. Alore than two 
hundred alumni registered at Headquarters — a 
better record than at any time in the past twelve 


Fourteen of the social fraternites initiated 79 
pledges into active membership over the past week- 
end. The number of initiates is small compared 
with other years. Three fraternities. Beta Kappa, 
Phi Lambda Theta, and Delta Kappa Phi, did not 
hold initiation ; 3 more initiated only 2 ; most of the 
others initiated only about five ; while only two, Phi 
Kappa Psi and Sigma Chi, received more than ten 
new men into membership. Of the 79 men initiated, 
77 were freshmen, and two were sophomores. 



A gift of more than twelve hundred dollars 
from the Class of 1933 spelled success for the 
Alumni Fund of 1933 and enabled some twenty- 
four seniors to graduate with their class. The 
class memorial funds were voted to The Alumni 
Fund as a part of the Loan Plan. The action of the 
Class of 1933 follows that of the two preceding 
graduating groups. 

Alumni contributions were received during the 
year in small amounts to a total of more than two 
thousand dollars from more than five hundred alum- 
ni. The Alumni Secretary reported to the General 
Alumni meeting on the comparison of the present 
report and the report of the previous year. While 
the actual cash received was a few hundred dollars 
less this year than last the number of alumni con- 
tributing was some twenty per cent larger than for 
any previous year.

TWO of the seven living members of 1883, the 
golden anniversary class, met on the campus 
after fifty years of separation. They were Dr. 
Wm. G. Watkins of Scranton and Mr. Charles Stein 
of Lewisburg. Their reunion at Alumni Headquar- 
ters Saturday afternoon was devoted to the reading 
of letters from classmates. Several of the letters 
received by President Rainey in reply to his invita- 
tion to attend Commencement are printed herewith : 

Lancaster, Texas. 
Dear President Rainey: 

Your very kind invitation just at hand. I surely thank 
you. It would delight both wife and myself to be present 
at the coming commencement. It has been a long time 
since either of us has been on the dear old campus. De- 
lightful memories cling to the place. 

I would be glad to see again the members of '83 yet 
living, only one of whom I've seen since 1896. My work 
has been so far away that visits to Bucknell have been 
impossible. However, the school has been much in my 

Then it would be iine to meet and greet our new Pres- 
ident. Living as I do in Texas, it is fine to think that 
my State has contributed a President to Alma Mater. It 
has not only been my lot to be far away from Bucknell, 
but I have not been near enough to other colleges, except 
Grand Island, in Nebraska. She graciously conferred an 
Hon. D.D. upon me in 1911. 

I am glad to send most cordial greetings to the alumni 
as they meet in happy fellowship this commencement. 
May their highest purposes and plans for the school be 
more than realized. How I wish I could help — we cer- 
tainly wish for you the very best possible in your great 
work at Bucknell. 

Very cordially yours, 

Wm. J. Coulston. 
South Wellfleet, 
Cape Cod, Mass. 

Dear Dr. Rainey: 

Your gracious letter of invitation, with its hospitable 
offer of entertainment, reached me while I was in process 
of packing for our summer home. I thank you heartily, 
but I regret to write that it seems altogether improbable 
that I can accept the invitation and enjoy the reunion of 
our class after these fifty years. 

I have not been in Lewisburg for more than 20 years. 
I fear my interest had waned; but that is not my reason 
for my failure to return on this occasion. Frankly I could 
not afford the travel expense, which is considerable from 
this far-distant place, not to mention other difficulties. 

By way of greeting I venture the enclosed alumni song. 
If you think it worth while, use it. If not forget it and me. 

I am now a young man of only 74 years and headed for 
90 years. Have preached 54 years and taught philosophy 
and systematic theology to younger preachers for 21 years. 
I have served, with modesty I hope, in many responsible 
positions in those years and am still able and ready for 
more. I quote from our Class Song — "But life is all 
before us. We sing our song of glee, With a merry laugh 
and pledge ourselves to dear old '83." 



Dr. Wm. Watkins and Mr. Chas. Stein 

Again thanking you heartily, I remain, with wishes and 
prayer for great success to your administration, 
Yours very cordially 
Spenser B. Meeser, (D.D. Brown '01). 


May be sung to the tune 
"Materna" — "America The Beautiful" 

0! Alma Mater, Mother mine, 

How sweet the memory 
Of those blest years together spent 

In gracious amity. 
0! Mother mine, O! Mother mine, 

We never can forget 
Thy timely toil brought wisdom's wealth 

And joys without regret. 
O! Mother mine, to Thee we owe, 

And to thy diligence. 
That we were given vision clear 

Of life's munificence; 
The good, the true, the beautiful, 

To seek with eager heart, 
And honor hold with constancy. 

In forum, field or mart. 
O! Mother mine, nor waifs are we. 

But children of thy mind. 
By Thee were born, from Thee went forth 

In service of our kind; 
To glorify thy skill and fame 

For Thee win world applause, 
To make thy name a talisman. 

For every worthy cause. 
0! Mother mine, we come once nacre, 

To greet Thee with our gains 
To hail thy mastery of men 

And honor all thy claims; 
To shout with zeal "Bucknell o'er all", 

For us the great and good. 
To pledge ourselves, now each to each, 

The Bucknell Brotherhood. 

THE 45th anniversary reunion of the Class of '88 
took place on the afternoon of June third. All 
the living members of the class except four 
took dinner together at the Manufacturer's Club, 
Milton. The wives or daughters of a number of the 
men were also present. All took pleasure in learn- 
ing what the other men had been doing. The record 
was creditable. All had been rendering real service 
to their fellowmen in a Christian spirit worthy of 

Dr. David Jayne Hill, for whom the class of '88 — 
the last to graduate under his administration, had a 

H. Clipman, Rev. G. 

Hayes, Dr. H. M. 

Harry Roberts, Mr. 

Dr. \\'ilHam Wood- 

peculiar regard and affection was spoken of with 
much feeling. His passing away was felt as a great 
personal loss to all of the group. A resolution was 
carried that our sympathy should be expressed to 
his family. 

Dr. C. A. "Dad" Soars was elected Class Agent 
for the Class on the Alumni Fund and continued as 
Class President. Rev. W. H. Clipman was also con- 
tinued as Class Secretary. 

The meeting adjourned after deciding to endeavor 
to come together again in five years. 

Those present : 

Rev. A. B. Bowser, Rev. W. 
A\'. Hatch, Dr. William A^anV 
Kelly, Dr. Paul Pontius, Dr. 
Tohn Schreyer, Dr. C. A. Soars, 


The thirtieth reunion of the famous class of 1903 
was held at the Lewisburg Club on Saturday after- 
noon June 3. Ten members of the class were pres- 
ent, some with families. In the absence of the Pres- 
ident, Professor Walter K. Rhodes, through illness, 
Attorney Cloyd Steininger presided at the meeting 
and read letters from the following- classmates. 

J. Fred Sigel in London, John Young in Bridge- 
port, Conn., Mrs. Elvie Coleman Herpel in McKees- 
port, R. E. Carringer in Mt. Vernon, Indiana, Miss 
Ida Luchsinger in West Pittston, Rev. M. F. For- 
bell in Sunbury, S. A. Hart in Hicksville, N. Y., John 
B. Cook in Saxton's River, Vt., Rev. Roger Williams 
in Greensburg, and Irvin Bartholomew in Nyassa, 

Those present were Attorneys Reese H. Harris, 
Cloyd Steininger, and William N. C. Marsh, Mr. J. 
F. Bond, Mr. W. B. Kester, Miss Emily Ebling, Miss 
Hannah Goodman, Miss Charlotte Shields, Mrs. 
Grace Roberts Snyder, and Dr. Harry Mauser. 


THE Class of 1908, as the phrase goes, has 
"rounded out" a quarter century, and how ! 
Those back for the 25th reunion at Lewisburg 
on Saturday, June 3, saw the roundest bunch of boys 
in Bucknell history. 

Mr. Judson Hyatt and Dr. A. Lincoln Moore 

for JUNE, 1933 



Take the class president, the Rev. A\ infield S. 
Booth, for example. You called him "Buster" twen- 
tj'-five years ago, little realizing the name would 
ever refer to vest buttons. Take any of a dozen 
others, who looked scrawny even in cap and gown 
along about the Ides of June in 1908. It's a safe bet 
that those who returned for the reunion weighed 
more than the whole class did, diplomas and all, at 
their commencement. 

With this impressionistic picture of those present, 
let's get on with the story of the reunion. 

Some forty, including wives, husbands and fam- 
ilies of classmates, were there for the luncheon at 
Lewisburg Inn and an hour or so of reminiscent 
chat afterward at the home of the class secretary, 
Paul G. Stolz and Mrs. Stolz, where a photographer, 
using a wide-angle lens, was able to get the grouD 
of expanded girths all in one picture, including 
Posey Hayes's smile. 

At the luncheon, the roll call brought sketchy 
reviews of the quarter century. Most of the boast- 
ing was about families, very little about degrees in 
philosophy, size of income taxes paid or refunded, 
big jobs held or turned down. 

Nearly ever}' one in the group had a kodak pic- 
ture or two, to be brought out, quite nonchalantly, 
of course, and passed around to be admired, pic- 
tures of the second generation. 

It was as much a family reunion as a class re- 
union. For example, Horace King, whom everyone 
Avanted to tell about his success in law which en- 
abled him to build a mansion along the river in Har- 

risburg almost as big as Buckingham Palace, pre- 
ferred to tell about his family of five boys and a 

Aelfric James's boast was not his progress in 
teaching young Eastonians, but his family which 
comes within one of tying King for class honors. 

A\"alter Noll did not talk so much about teaching 
in Newark as about his family tour of America by 
automobile last summer. 

They also bragged about their wives. Chaplain 
Reuben Shrum might have recited his experiences 
here and there with Uncle Sam's Navy ; his brief 
speech was taken up in introducing to his class- 
mates his charming bride from California. Mrs. 
Shrum responded with the announcement that she 
has taken Rube "out of circulation." 

Other high lights of the luncheon speeches were 
Joe Shultz's dream of an Alumni House on the Buck- 
nell campus ; Joe Henderson's vision of the Com- 
mons System at the ; Coxey Thompson's 
declaration that he is NOT in politics ; Grace Roycr 
ilaclay and her Franklin and ^Marshall husband, an- 
nouncing some Macla}' youths ready for either Buck- 
nell or Franklin and ^Marshall and may the best 
woman win ; Margaret Pangburn Mathias introduc- 
ing three manly sons ; Clyde Hostetter, president of 
the American Ceramic Society or some such honor, 
referring to himself as a "glassblower." 

After the roll of those present, those absent 
were referred to by those fortunate enough to know 
their stories and their successes. Helen Tiffany 
Blakemore took the honors in this phase of the re- 



union by supplying information on at least ten girls 
in the class. 

The roll call was answered in person by the fol- 
lowing ; 

The Rev. Winfield S. Booth, of Newark, N. J., in 
Baptist church work. Mrs. Booth and Winfield 
Scott Booth, Jr., attended the luncheon with him. 

Joseph W. "Henderson, Philadelphia lawyer. Mrs. 
Henderson was also a guest at the luncheon. 

Dr. M. E. Sayre, Reedsville, Pa., physician, ac- 
companied at the reunion by Mrs. Sayre. 

H. C. (Coxe}^ the 2nd) Thompson, who announced 
that he was selling sand and gravel, resident of 
Beaver Falls, Pa. Mrs. Thompson and their niece, 
Miss Ruth Taggart, accompanied him. 

Chaplain Reuben ^^'. Shrum, United States Navy, 
now stationed with the Coast Guard at New London, 
Conn. His bride returned with him for the reunion. 

Helen Tiffany Blakemore, of the Reading schools 
faculty, was present with two of her children, Billy 
and Jeanne. 

Joseph R. Shultz, with the Metropolitan Insurance 
Company, at Trenton, N. J., attended with Mrs. 

Paul G. Stolz, of the Bucknell School of Music, 
attended the luncheon with his daughter, Anna 
Louise Stolz. 

Margaret Pangburn Mathias, teacher and dean in 
the Lewisburg High School. 

Grace Royer Maclay, of Belleville, Pa., attended 
with her husband, Robert Maclay. 

James Fuller Hayes came up from Washington 
where he is affiliated with the United States De- 
partment of Agriculture. 

Horace B. King, Harrisburg lawyer, returned 
with Mrs. King and their oldest son, Horace, Jr., 
a student at Bucknell, also was a guest at the re- 

Carl Sprout, in newspaper work at Harrisburg, 
attended the luncheon with Mrs. Sprout. 

Aelfric James, in public school work at Easton, 
Pa., was another guest. 

Walter L. Noll, teaching at Newark, N. J., was 

J. Clyde Hostetter, chemist with the Corning 
Glass Works at Corning, N. Y., received congratu- 
lations of his classmates on fame in his field. 

Edward R. Innes, in business at Canton, Pa., and 
Charles Nicely, in business at Watsontown, Pa. ; 
John B. Boyer, assistant superintendent of North- 
umberland county schools, resident of Herndon, Pa., 
completed the roll of those who returned for the re- 

Two other guests were Leo Rockwell, of the Class 
of 1907, and Gilbert Perez, also of 1907, who came 
from an important post in Philippines education to 
accept honors from Bucknell at commencement. 

Word from absent members of the class, some 
news direct, other indirect, kept interest at high 
pitch for more than an hour. A letter from Chester 
P. Higby located him as professor of modern Euro- 
pean history at the University of Wisconsin. Re- 
grets at their absence came from David H. Binns, 
Charles (Zeke) Baldwin, George W. Webster, AHce 
M. Clarkson, and others. 

Booth was re-elected president, Stolz, secretary 
of the class. Ed Innes and Joe Henderson also were 
elected something or other; they'll probably write 
and tell you all about it. 

Mrs. Rainey at Headquarters 


THE class of '98 held a luncheon in honor of its 
thirty-fifth anniversary in Lewisburg, June fifth 
at the Lewisburg Inn. Twelve sat down to the 
table, and enjoyed exchanging news about our- 
selves and the absentees, and also enjoyed hearing, 
especially from our host, Drew Leiser, amusing re- 
collections of college days, na}- even of days in the 
old Academy. It was pleasant to foregather with 
former classmates but there was an undercurrent of 
sadness because of the recent loss of one of our 
number, Benjamin F. Thomas, whose great desire 
it had been to have this reunion on his lawn. 

Before adjournment, J. Elmer Saul, of Norris- 
town, oft'ered, if the members of the class would 
send him a brief history of their years since gradu- 
ation day, to print these histories in one pamphlet 
and mail a copy to each member free of charge. 

Plans were made for a reunion five years hence, 
and R. B. Mulkie, Mary Chambers Flint, and Grace 
.Slifer Drum appointed as a committee in charge of 

It was a pleasure to have Walter Hill, now a 
Scranton lawyer — "member of the bar, if you please" 
— with us, but he had to leave early as he was that 
day presenting a portrait of his father, Dr. David 
Jayne Hill, a former president of the LTniversity, 
to be hung in the living room of Hunt Hall, and the 
unveiling ceremony with its words of presentation 
from him was now due. 

At the luncheon one of our class sisters was heard 
to say enthusiastically "I've enjoyed every minute 
since I've been here," which is the way we hope all 
of those who returned for Commencement feel. 


George Vetter, erstwhile captain of the the Bison 
nine wrote finis to an active athletic career in a glor- 
ious manner in the eleventh inning of the Bucknell- 
Army diamond encounter on June 3 at West Point 
when, with the score knotted at 6 all, two 
out, and Joe Reznichak perched on third base, he 
smashed one of Ken Field's offerings to deep left 
center for the circuit. The Cadets came back with 
one in their half of the eleventh, but the game ended 
with the Bisons holding an 8-7 advantage.

The Twenty Year Class 


Red "Fire Chief" hats with the class numerals 
pasted thereon featured the reunion of 1913. The 
sub-committee of the class met Friday night and 
Saturday the whole gang took over most of Alumni 
Headquarters Building for the class get-together. 
Attorney Howard V. Fisher of Reading, Pa., kept 
things on the jump and supplied the red hats for the 
first class costume in recent years. M. B. Glover of 
Vineland, N. J., John D. W. Fetter of Ithaca, N. Y., 
Chas. A. Fryling of Sunbury, Sterling Post of North- 
umberland, C. E. Phillips of Shillington, Berkeley 
V. Hastings of Milton, and James F. McClure and 
Harold A. Shaffer of Lewisburg made up the crowd. 


More than a score of the ten year class gathered 
for the free ice cream on Saturday- afternoon. The 
girls took the lead in numbers with only a few of 
the fellows on hand. No formal reunion was held 
but everyone had a good time trying to remember 
names after the long stretch of half a score of years. 



A handful of alumni convened Saturday morning 
June 3 at the call of the Vice-President of The Gen- 
eral Alumni Association for the annual Commence- 
ment meeting in Bucknell Hall. The meeting was 
routine in nature but marked by keen interest on the 
part of the few in attendance. The formal report 
follows : 

The meeting was called to order by the \'ice- 
President, Dr. Mabel Grier Lesher, '01. 

The roll call was read by the Secretary. 

The minutes of the previous meeting were read

Dr. S. M. Davenport, '16, was nominated to fill 
the place on the Executive Committee vacated by 
Rev. Max Wiant. 

The report of the Trustee Election Committee

Junior College at Wilkes -Bar re 

University Launches New School 

BUCKXELL UXIVERSITY will open a co- 
educational Junior College in W'ilkes-Barre 
early in Septeniber with classrooms in the 
AVilkes-Barre Business College and a resident fac- 
ulty to be appointed shortly. 

Bucknell's trustees authorized the establishment 
of the college after they had reviewed the many re- 
quests made by school officials and others in the 
Wilkes-Barre district who urged that Bucknell open 
a junior college to accommodate the man}' graduates 
who are unable to go away to college upon finishing 
high school, but who are eager to continue their 

Dr. Frank G. Davis, of the department of educa- 
tion, made a thorough survey of the possibilities in 
the Wilkes-Barre region for such a college and re- 
ported to the Board of Trustees that an average of 
800 high school students are potential college ma- 
terial each year for a radius of 30 miles. He pre- 
dicted that 100 will go to a local junior college the 
first year. 

Dr. Davis has been placed in charge of the pre- 
liminary organization of the school and during the 
past several weeks he has visited many of the high 
schools in and near Wilkes-Barre, explaining the 
purpose and function of the new college. The entire 
second floor of the Wilkes-Barre Business College 
has been leased for classrooms and an office has been 
set up there for the handling of applications. The 
building is one short block from the business dis- 
trict and is near the Osterhout Free Library and the 
Wilkes-Barre Wyoming Valley Historical Society 
and the Historical and Geological ]\Iuseum. 

The curriculum for the new Bucknell unit will 
parallel the first two years" work at Bucknell Uni- 
versitv. Upon the completion of his course at 
Wilkes-Barre the junior college student may enter 
upon his junior year at Bucknell or he may transfer 
to another college. Freshman courses only will be 
offered for the first year, but in the following year 
sophomore courses will be added. 

Courses to be oft'ered at the college this fall in- 
clude the first-year's work towards the degree of 
bachelor of arts and towards bachelor of science 
degree in biology, in commerce and finance, or in 
education, as well as the freshman course leading 
to the degree of bachelor of science in chemical, 
civil, electrical, or mechanical engineering. 

It is expected that the junior college unit will in 
no way interfere with the work of the University, 
since the new branch has been established primarily 
to take care of those students who otherwise would 
be unable to attend college. 

Present plans call for the opening of the college 
on September 13, which is also the date for the start 
of Freshman Week at the University. For the time 
being, library facilities will be provided at the col- 
lege and at the Osterhout Free Library, which is 
cooperating in the project. The requirements for 
admission to the junior college are the same as those 
observed by the University. 

News of the opening of the college by Bucknell 
was received with keen enthusiasm by residents of 
\A'ilkes-Barre. which is now to lose its distinction 
of being the largest community in the state without 
a college for both men and women. The new project 
was given nation-wide publicity by Lowell Thomas, 
who announced it in one of his daily news broad- 
casts. Student interest in the college has been even 
greater than was anticipated and applications for 
admission began coming in immediately after the 
announcement was made. 

Bucknell is not the first Pennsylvania college to 
establish a junior college branch. The L^niversity 
of Pittsburgh has junior college units at Johnstown, 
Erie, and L'niontown. The junior college move- 
ment has been spreading rapidly in recent j-ears, 
especially in the Middle-\\"est and on the Pacific 
coast. Its growth in the East, however, has been 
comparatively recent, the greatest progress having 
been made in the past five 3-ears. 

The Procession 

Two Prexys 

for JUNE, 1933 15 


=>;::H* 0-=::== 

BUCKNELL is beginning a new and important enterprise. We are establishing a Junior 
College unit in Wilkes-Barre. This unit will be opened in September. The University 
has been considering the matter for several months. A thorough investigation of the 
need and the opportunities of a Junior College in W'ilkes-Barre was made, and the Admin- 
istration and Board of Trustees were convinced that there is a genuine need for such a col- 
lege in that territory, and also a fine opportunity for Bucknell to establish it. There is 
a population of over 400,000 in Wllkes-Barre and Luzerne County within easy commuting 
distance. There are more than 1200 high school graduates each year within this territory 
who are unable to go away to college or university. There are no college opportunities 
for this large group of high school graduates. A state-wide survey was made about two years 
ago of the cities in Pennsylvania that need a junior college organization. That study show- 
ed that there were, at least, ten cities where the junior college is a real need. The report 
also indicated that \\^ilkes-Barre offered the greatest need and the best opportunity of all 
the ten cities. 

It is our purpose to offer in Wilkes-Barre the first two years' curricula of the University 
program. \\'e expect to make it possible for students to get the same program for these 
two years that they would receive if they were on the campus. At the end of the two years' 
work there, students will be able to enter ihe Junior Class on the campus, or transfer to 
any other institution of their choice with full credit for the work they have done. We will 
place in Wilkes-Barre a first-class faculty to offer this work. 

The citizens of Wilkes-Barre and of the surrounding communities have greeted this mat- 
ter with genuine interest and cooperation. In fact, the enthusiasm which is being given 
this proposition by school leaders and citizens alike has been very gratifying. 

This is not a wholly new enterprise in Pennsjdvania. The University of Pittsburgh has 
for several years been operating junior college organizations in Erie, Johnstown, and Un- 
iontown. In the country at large the junior college movement has grown very rapidly in re- 
cent jrears. There are now more than five hundred such colleges in the United States. The 
junior college has become an established and recognized unit of the American School System. 
We confidently expect that this unit will be a valuable, educational asset to the vicinity of 
Wilkes-Barre and will also prove to be a valuable contribution to the University. 

Faithfully 3'ours, 




An audience of some sixty alumni and prospective 
Bucknellian and their parents listened with enthus- 
iasm to an address by Dr. Rainey on the changes, 
present and future, in Bucknell's affairs in the lounge 
of the Shelton Hotel, New York City Friday eve- 
ning, May 26th. Preceding Dr. Rainey's talk, a 
short business meeting was held and resulted in the 
election of the following ofdcers : 

President, George S. Stevenson, M.D., '15, of the 
National Committee for Mental Hygiene. 450 Sev- 
enth Ave., New York City. 

Vice-President, Frank R. McGregor (re-elected). 

Secretary, Albert Clark, '15, Salmon Tower, 11 
West 42nd" St., New York City. 

Treasurer, James R. Herman, '17, 1 Madison Ave., 
New York City. 

Dr. Rainey spoke with warmth of his belief in the 
future of the University after two years of associa- 
tion with it. This belief, he stated, was grounded 
in the potentiality of the power for cooperation and 
support which he had observed in the alumni organi- 
zations throughout the country. He gave his con- 
ception of the functions of a liberal college, a con- 
ception which has already been outlined in these 
columns and does not need to be repeated here. His 
awareness of the changing conditions of modern so- 
ciety and his analysis of the changes necessary in 
college training to prepare young men and young 
women for a worthy role plainly delighted his audi- 
ence which gave him hearty applause. 

The President's statement of the University's 
plans for the re-planning of the campus and the con- 
struction of beautiful and adequate buildings was 
no less eloquent than his interpretation of the 
changes in curriculum. 

The alumni present were in numbers fairly well 
distributed as to older and more recent graduating 
classes. Professor Harley of Brooklyn was present 
with four Bucknell prospects. Dr. Charles Francis 
Potter, represented the class of 1907. He is engaged 
in the writing of three books besides serving the 
First Humanist Church and editing a magazine. 
Rush Kress, active in planning the event, could not 
be present because of a minor accident. Others on 
the committee were Julius Seebach, retiring pres- 
ident, Stanley P. Davies, Ph.D., and Dr. Stevenson. 
Serving on the nominating committee for the elec- 
tion were Dr. Davies, Thomas Mangan, and Weaver 
W. Pangburn. 


Philadelphia Bucknellians enjoyed a fine evening 
on May 26 at Kugler's Restaurant when Mr. J. Fred- 
erick Larsen, University Architect, outlined the fu- 
ture architectural development of Bucknell. The 
dinner was presided over by Dr. Paul J. Pontius, 
'88, who introduced each speaker. Dr. Pontius was 
presented by Mr. H. F. Sheffer, '18, President of the 
Philadelphia Alumni Club. 

The toastmaster wielded his gavel and his wit in 
able fashion introducing first the Chairman of the 
Board of Trustees, Mr. Charles P. Vaughn who told 
of his first interest in Bucknell and his increasing 
faith in the small college so finely exemplified in 
Bucknell. Mr. Vaughn also paid high tribute to 

President Rainey as one of the outstanding leaders 
in education in America today. 

Mr. Larsen was next presented and outlined with 
sketches and drawings his plans for the future 
growth of the Universit}-. His talk was most in- 
teresting as he portrayed the spiritual growth of the 
college along with the physical. 

Hon. John B. Stetson, Jr., another able Bucknell 
trustee was then introduced and optimistically spoke 
of the future and the part that each individual 
alumnus could play in the great scheme of Buck- 
nell's progress. 

Others introduced were Mr. Harry Roberts, '88, 
who had driven from Los Angeles to attend Com- 
mencement and his class reunion, his son J. H. R. 
Roberts, '12, Romain Hassrick, '06, Dr. E. S. Cor- 
son, '92, and the Alumni Secretary, A. G. Stoughton, 


Stanle}' P. Davies, '12, formerly Professor of So- 
ciology at Bucknell, has been appointed general di- 
rector of the Charity Organization Society of New 
York, it was announced on June 4 by Walter S. 
Gift'ord, president of the society and president of the 
Bell Telephone Companj-. 

Mr. Davies was formerly associate secretary of 
the Charities Aid Association of New York. He has 
written several books on sociology and has taught 
at Columbia University. After taking his degree at 
Bucknell, he completed his degree as doctor of phil- 
osophy at ColumlDia. For fifteen years he has been 
intimately allied with various types of social service. 

In addition to directing the society's regular work 
of family aid and rehabilitation, he will direct its co- 
operation with public relief bodies and will head its 
complete program in four dift'erent departments. 

In an interview Dr. Davies said, "Regarding so- 
cial work and service, it seems to me that prevention 
rather than alleviation must be the keynote and the 
basis. We must be constantly experimenting, seek- 
ing out new ways, and better ones, of helping people 
to take care of themselves." 

Dr. Davies was born in Philadelphia. During the 
World War he served as an officer on the staff of 
the Surgeon General of the Army. Later he was 
chosen by Raymond Moley, now Assistant Secretary 
of State, and then head of the Cleveland Foundation, 
to help conduct one of the surveys for which that 
organization is very well known. Dr. Davies wrote 
the report of the survey on recreation. In 1919 he 
joined the State Charities Aid Association of New 
York, with which organization he has remained con- 
stantly with the exception of one year as Professor 
at Bucknell. He is a member of the Delta Sigma 
fraternity, and has served as President of the New 
York Alumni Club. 


The Reading Club met at the Wyomissing Club 
as the guests of Howard V. Fisher, Esq., '13, Presi- 
dent. Professor Harry R. Warfel, '20, of the de- 
partment of English, spoke on the new curriculum 
and illustrated the proposed new building program. 
In the afternoon Dr. Warfel spoke to the seniors in 
the Reading High School. 

for JUNE, 1933 



Ten games, eight listed against major opponents 
and two of which are carded with intersectional foes, 
gives Bucknell in 1933 one of the hardest football 
schedules in recent years. The card was aniiounced 
in June by Dr. B. W. Griffith, graduate manager of 

The 1933 season starts with two comparatively 
easy foes, then swings into an eight game stretch 
over successive week-ends when the Herd must 
stack up against teams of first class caliber. 

The intersectional tilts, coming on successive 
week-ends, are with Furman, at Bucknell on Ar- 
mistice Day, and Wake Forest, at Norfolk, Va., on 
November 18. It will be the first time since Carl 
Snavely took up the varsitj' coaching reigns at Buck- 
nell that the Herd has faced a team from another 
section of the country. The last of such games took 
place in 1926 when Coach Moran took the bellowing 
Bisons to Kansas where they tackled the Haskell 

The Wake Forest game will be something of a 
feather in Bucknell's hat because it is being plaj^ed 
as the sports attraction at the dedicatory exercises 
for Norfolk's new community stadium. Wake For- 
est, from the town of that name in North Carolina, 
will represent the southern teams, while Bucknell 
has been chosen as the representative of the north. 
The game is expected to attract considerable atten- 

Furman, of Greenville, South Carolina, is not un- 
known in the north, last year giving Army the scare 
of its life in the Cadets' opener when they held the 
West Pointers to a 13 to victory. 

B. U. vs. Temple Homecoming, October 28 

The peak of the schedule will be reached, of 
course, when Pop W^arner's Temple Owls appear 
here on Homecoming Day, October 28. The home 
season also includes games with Waynesburg, Leb- 
anon Valley, Furman, and Washington and Jeffer- 

Prospects are bright for a strong Bucknell team 
next fall. An undefeated freshman team, and a fair- 
ly strong varsity squad from which only four sen- 
iors graduate, combine to point toward a successful, 
possibly undefeated, season. 

The 1933 schedule, with location of games, last 
year's score, and the series results, follow : 

Friday, Sept. 22, (Night), Waynesburg, at 
Bucknell. (First meeting.) 

Friday, Sept. 29, (Night), Lebanon Valley 
at Bucknell. (No game in 1932; Bucknell r> 
wins, Lebanon Valley 1.) 

Friday, Oct. 6, (Night), Duquesne at Forbes 
Field, Pittsburgh. (First meeting.) 

Saturday, Oct. 14, Villanova at Main Line 
Stadium, Philadelphia. (V. 13, B. 0; Bucknell 
8, Villanova 2, tied 2.) 

Saturday, Oct. 21, Lafayette at Easton, La- 
fayette Stadium. (B. 14, L. 6; Bucknell 3, La- 
fayette 12, tied 4.) 

Saturday, Oct. 28, Temple at Bucknell, 
Homecoming Day, (B. 0, T. 12; Bucknell 1,

(First meeting.) 

Saturday, Nov. 18, Wake Forest at Com- 
munit\' Stadium, Norfolk, Va. (First meeting.) 

Saturday, Nov. 25, Washington and Jefferson 
at Bucknell. (B. 0, W. & T. 14; Bucknell 1, W. 
& J. 10, tied 1.) 


Paul Althouse, member of the Metropolitan Opera 
Company and considered by many as America's 
greatest tenor, will be guest artist of the Bucknell 
University Symphony Orchestra in its concert the 
week of December 4. Althouse, a member of the 
class of 1912, will sing a program of the works of 
Franz Schubert and Richard Wagner. 

The first part of the program, devoted to compo- 
sitions of Schubert, will open with the Tragic Sym- 
phony, No. 4. Paul Althouse will sing a group of 
songs by Schubert, the greatest composer of songs 
of all time. 

The second half of the program is given to Wag- 
ner's works in commemoration of the fiftieth anni- 
versary of the death of that composer. Althouse 
will sing the Prize Song from the Meistersinger 
\'on Nlirnberg. The Symphony Orchestra will con- 
clude the concert with the Rienzi Overture. 

The 1933 Commencement closed the most suc- 
cessful season of the orchestra since its inception 
under its present conductor. Professor Paul Gies, 
four seasons ago. Included in its repertory this 
year were the Symphonie Militaire of Haydn ; the 
symphonic poem, "Les Preludes" of Liszt; the Bas- 
soon Concerto of Mozart ; the Prometheus Overture 
of Beethoven ; and works of Wagner and Rachma- 

In addition to the concerts of the Symphony or- 
chestra, the combined organizations of the Univer- 
sity will render the Bach Passion according to St. 
Matthew at Easter time. This will be the fourth 
annual Bach presentation of the Music Department 
of Bucknell L^^niversitv. 


Forty-one students from six states took examina- 
tions Tuesday and W'^ednesday in competing for 
the three $1(X)0 scholarships created by the Board of 
Trustees last December. The scholarships will be 
awarded to the three ranking students of the group, 
all of whom are prospective freshmen. The scholar- 
ships are worth $250 a year for four years. 

Thirty high school seniors from Pennsylvania, 
four from New York, three from New Jersey, two 
from Massachusetts, and one each from Connecti- 
cut and Vermont were included in the group. All 
of the students ranked in the upper one-fifth of their 
high school graduating classes. 



Edmund Wells, '69 and nephew, C. Edmund Wells, '33 


Between six and seven hundred young men and 
women, members of Pennsylvania Baptist Young 
People's Societies, will gather on the campus in 
June for their annual convention. Forums, group 
conferences, and worship services will feature the 
three-day program which opens Friday, June 30. 

Dr. Oscar M. Buck of Drew University will make 
the princi])al address at the opening session Friday 
afternoon, at which the delegates will be welcomed 
by Dr. Homer P. Rainey, president of Bucknell. 
Forums on World Leaders, Rethinking Missions, 
International Problems, and Disarmament and 
World Peace will follow the first meeting. 

William H. Rhoads, of Toledo, Ohio, president of 
the Baptist Young People's Union of America, will 
lead the services Friday evening at wdiich the speak- 
er will be Dr. Bernard C. Clausen, pastor of the 
First Baptist Church of Syracuse, N. Y. 

Dr. Albert W. Beaven, president of the Colgate- 
Rochester Divinity School and of the Federal Coun- 
cil of Churches of Christ in America, will take a 
leading part in the convention, as will numerous 
other prominent Baptists. 

Saturday afternoon will be devoted to recreation 
with a track meet in Memorial Stadium as the prin- 
cipal feature. A stewardship oratorical contest in 
which the finalists from six districts will participate 
is on the program for Saturday evening. The win- 

ner will be awarded a scholarship by Bucknell Uni- 

Dr. Rainey will preach the Convention sermon in 
the Baptist Church Sunda}- morning when a special 
communion service will be held. The convention 
closes Sunda)' afternoon with a final session at which 
officers will be installed and reports of findings com- 
mittees will be heard. The Rev. Clarence W. Cran- 
ford, pastor of the Logan Baptist Church in Phila- 
delphia, will make the closing address. 


Prospects are bright for another successful sum- 
mer session at Bucknell University, according to 
Professor John H. Eisenhauer, '05, director of the 
six-weeks' course. 

The quota set for the class in practice teaching 
conducted in connection with Bucknell's Demon- 
stration School has already been filled and further 
applications for that course are being refused daily, 
he said. Registrations for other courses continue 
at a rate that indicates an enrollment approximating 
that of other summers. 

Summer session students will register in Tustin 
gymnasium on Wednesday, July 5. Classes begin 
the following day and continue until Tuesday, Au- 
gust 15. 

Professor Eisenhauer today announced another 
new course for this year's curriculum. Professor 
Melvin W. LeMon, of the department of music, will 
offer a course in pipe organ. A course in Public 
School Finance to be taught by Dr. Homer P. 
Rainey, president of Bucknell, was announced for 
the summer session a few days ago. 


Hard luck rode the waves with Guy Philip Ells- 
worth, '36, LTnited States champion in Class C out- 
board motor competition, in the Italian Regatta held 
at Gardone, Italy, in May, and he was forced to re- 
tire from the race after holding the lead for three 
laps. Engine trouble caused the famous Bucknell 
student to drop out. 

But just as hard luck dealt him this hard blow, 
so did the goddess of luck ride with him as he drove 
his Blue Devil, bearing the insignia of Bucknell 
and of his fraternity, Sigma Alpha Epsilon, to the 
C Class championship of all Europe in the Grand 
Prix tournament at Turin, France, on Sunday, May 


DR. C. P. HIGBY, '08 


It is a pleasure to record the latest 
achievement of Dr. Chester Penn Hig- 
by, '08, one of Bucknell's most out- 
standing scholars. Dr. Higby, after 
graduating from Bucknell in 1908, re- 
ceived his doctor's degree from Co- 

lumbia in 1910. He then taught at 
the University of West Virginia, the 
University of North Carolina and the 
University of Wisconsin, where he is 
now located as full professor. Dr. 
Higby has mastered the modern Euro- 
pean field and his History of Modern 
Europe, which has been prepared for 
college use, has been well received and 
is being widely used in colleges as a 

Dr. Higby has given us a well bal- 
anced, judicious account of a very diffi- 
cult period in a readable style. Per- 
haps his most important success in a 
field where there are numerous ex- 
cellent texts is the splendid organiza- 
tion of the materials and the allotment 

of space. While comprehensive, the 
book is clear and concise and does not 
leave one in doubt as to meaning or 
interpretation. The comprehensive bib- 
ligraphy is especially helpful. The 
maps are well prepared and aid great- 
ly in giving that necessary cartograph- 
ical assistance to students. 

It would be difficult to touch upon 
all of the commendable features of Dr. 
Higby's book, but perhaps his discus- 
sion of the industrial revolution is 
most outstanding. Here he shows him- 
self to be a master of technical detail, 
a rare ability in historians. Another 
excellent feature is the admirable re- 
view of the post-war developments 
which should help to make the study 

for JUNE, 1933 


of modern European history a living 
subject to the students. 

On completing the book one feels 
that it should be in the hands of the 
many people who will never again 
have the opportunity of taking- a col- 
lege course but who would profit from 
its perusal as much as the average 
undergraduate. Dr. Higby is to be 
congratulated upon his excellent work. 

Th? book is published by The Cen- 
tury Co. 



One of the most prolific writers 
among the faculty members this year 
has been Dr. Frank G. Davis, '11, head 
of the department of education, who 
has, since March 1, 1933, had published 
a book and three professional articles. 
A summary of the works by Professor 
Davis follows: 

"A course in Supervised Teaching" 
published by the Inor Publishing Com- 
pany. This is a workbook for student 
teachers and persons taking labora- 
tory courses in methods of teaching. 
The book has received an enthusiastic 
reception and indications are that it 
will be used quite extensively next 

"Practice Teaching in Summer Ses- 
sions," a nation-wide study of prac- 
tice teaching during the summei', pub- 
lished in Educational Administration 
and Supervision, May, 1933. 

"The Development of the Work of 
the Attendance Officer into that of a 
Guidance Worker," a historical study 
of the development of the work of the 
attendance officer in the city of Phila- 
delphia, as indicated by examinations 
given to applicants for the position of 
attendance oflncer in the years 1914 to 
1930, published in Vocational Guidance 
Magazine April, 1933. Charles A. 
Wheeler, Bucknell graduate student 
collaborated in this study. 

"The Ethics Code," an interpretation 
of the Pennsylvania Code of Ethics for 
teachers, published in the Pennsylva- 
nia School Journal, May, 1933. Prof. 
Davis is chairman of the Pennsylva- 
nia Commission on Professional Ethics. 



A most intei-esting new book has 
come to my attention. It is entitled, 
"Vocational Guidance in Engineering 
Lines." It is sponsored by the Amer- 
ican Association of Engineers, pub- 
lished by the Mack Printing Company, 
Easton, Pa., and costs S2.50 postpaid 
(S2.00 in lots of ten or more). 

The book is written primarily for 
the high school student or for the col- 
lege student who has not yet made his 

choice of a life work. It should in- 
terest, also, any college graduate 
whose experience in engineering has 
not been as satisfactory as antici- 
pated, for it gives a wealth of sugges- 
tive information. 

The Editorial Committee is headed 
by Dr. J. A. L. Waddell, the distin- 
guished engineer, author and teacher 
and the contributor of each chapter is 
a man preeminent in his line of engi- 
neering. Each chapter in the body of 
the book endeavors to describe both 
the general and the special require- 
ments for the particular branch of the 
profession under discussion, outlining 
specifically the nature of the work, and 
in most cases, pointing out definitely 
the compensation to be expected. 
Nineteen chapters are devoted to the 
main forms of engineering. Thirty 
chapters discussing specialties follow. 
A resume concludes. TTie fifty illus- 
trations are largely of the most re- 
cently completed projects and are in 
themselves most thought provoking. 

The general reader in addition to 
learning what is involved in "Ceramic 
Engineering", "Geodetic Surveying", 
"Valuation Engineering", etc., will 
find much of interest. "Prometheus 
Enchained", Chapter III, is the clear- 
est diagnosis of the malaise of twen- 
tieth century civilization I have seen 
in print. Quotation, "In a sense, the 
modern world is not led at all. It 
simply flounders. In the United States, 
for instance, we have a political gov- 
ernment composed of office seekers 
and chair wai'mers, who have no more 
idea of the complexities they are sup- 
posed to direct than the man in the 
moon. The real action in the Republic 
is provided by business men affiliated 
with large corporate enterprises. A 
few of them may possess some sense 
of state, to use the phrase of H. G. 
Wells, but the majority neither knov/ 
nor care where the body politic is 

headed So far the 

Republic moves, however, the man of 
business provides the driving force, 
leaving the statesman, the philosopher, 
the professor, the editor, the general, 
the parson, to contemplate gloomily 
the crowns which once they wore." 

The tone of the book is excellent, 
not alone in the chapter. "Idealism in 
Engineering", but throughout the 500 
pages, one finds sentiments expressed 
by these seasoned engineers and uni- 
versity professors, that would be quite 
appropriate in ethical discussions. For 
example, in the chapter on Mechanical 
Engineering the writer digresses to 
give his idea of the nature of real 
success, and in most of the chapters 
is voiced the appeal to the youth of 
our land to know the satisfaction of 
accomplishment, to experience the 
inner glow of gratification when the 
hard, but worth while, task has been 
mastered. The chief value of this is 

in its incidental nature. You cannot 
teach such things directly. The young- 
reader would pass hastily the chapter 
"Idealism", but come to a complete 
stop when in "Chemical Engineering" 
he reads how the sulphur industry has 
been changed in the United States 
from importing from Aetna's crater, 
to using- the deposits of our own in 
Louisiana and Texas, — deposits a 
thousand feet underground, — super- 
heated water introduced through pipes, 
— liquefied sulphur pumped to the sur- 
face, — solidified blocks as large as 
"Old Main", ground up and sent out 
to industry. The economist and the 
sociologist might well pause to notice 
the immense significance. 

Civil and Electrical Engineering 
are well-treated and have probably 
more space devoted to them than is 
used in the description of other lines. 
One of the illustrations is of the Cono- 
wingo hydro-electric project, with 
which many of us are familiar, — the 
conception and execution of John 
Walls, '98, who, so graciously, person- 
ally conducted our engineering staff' on 
an inspection of his work not long ago. 
The eight charts given in the chapter 
on "Electrical Engineering" by Mr. 
Dudley, of the Westinghouse Com- 
pany, showing- the steps in each case 
usually taken by a man entering some 
one line of work and the resulting 
advancement he may expect to find 
leading to a great variety of posi- 
tions, should be helpful. Any alumnus 
who finds his progress slow or unsat- 
isfactory might get the lead in these 
charts that would start him on his way 
to real success. 

From the standpoint of English, the 
book is exceedingly interesting. Na- 
turally there could be no unified style, 
but the diction is good and the con- 
trasting types of expression of these 
engineers on their good behavior form 
an absorbing study. The chapter 
"Mining Engineering" proceeds like 
a ponderous Car of Juggernaut while 
"Automotive Engineering" capers 
about and leads the mind a merry 

One might venture the adverse criti- 
cism that the difficulties in the way of 
the entering student have been unduly 
stressed. Youth, however, is opti- 
mistic, and those of us teachers who 
have seen past standards excelled, by 
individuals in diflFerent generations of 
college students, are optimistic too. 
Let not the boy who reads turn aside, 
because hard work and hard study are 
involved. These specialists are but 
human. What man has done, man can 
do. The book is meant to be a kindly, 
helping- hand.

To Jessie Wheeler Armstrong has 
fallen the honor of having a college 
named in honor of her gifted husband, 
Ediom James Armstrong, who died 
in 1925. The Armstrong Junior Col- 
lege is located in Alderson, West Vir- 
ginia. It is making use of the prop- 
erty of the former Alderson College, 
founded eleven years ago and support- 
ed by the Baptists of West Virginia, 
but abandoned by them in June, 1932, 
when it became impossible for them 
to continue to support two colleges, 
Alderson and Broaddus. The two were 
then combined and the older college 
at Philippi was renamed the Alderson- 
Broaddus. To meet the desires of the 
citizens of Alderson and to create an 
institution which should serve the 
southern section of the state. Presi- 
dent Ira B. Bush of Charleston (form- 
erly superintendent of schools in Erie, 
Pa.) was granted by the trustees of 
the defunct college the privilege of 
using the excellent, modern buildings 
and campus of seventy acres to estab- 
lish a Junior College with a High 
School Department. This new college 
Mr. Bush named in honor of Mr. E. 
J. Armstrong, his friend, who had 
been a strong defender of his educa- 
tional policies during his superintend- 

Having successfully completed its 
first year of existence, the Armstrong- 
Junior College will open for a summer 
session of twelve weeks on June 12th. 
Work done during the session in the 
Normal Department will be accepted 
by the state for the certification of 

Mrs. Armstrong, who has been since 
1927 a trustee of Antioch College, now 
resides in Yellow Springs, Ohio. 


The death of Robert Simpson, broth- 
er of Professor Frank M. Simpson, 
'95, occurred in Columbus, Ohio on 
May 18, 1933. The following article 
and editorial are from the Columbus 
(Ohio) Citizen: 


Columbus lost one of its veteran 
public servants yesterday in the death 
of Robert H. Simpson, city engineer 
since 1920 and a member of the Engi- 
neering Department staff since 1904, 

No man has had more to do with 
the material shaping of modern Co- 
lumbus than had Mr. Simpson. The 
flood control development on the Scioto 
River, designed to prevent a repetition 
of the 1913 disaster, was carried out 
under his direction, and this formed 
the basis of the Civic Center project 
which has improved so vastly the as- 
pect of the river front area of cen- 
tral Columbus. 

He directed almost all of the grade 
crossing elimination program, whicii 
has opened up new avenues of traffic 
and promoted public safety. He had 
a share in the O'Shaughnessy Dam con- 
struction, which has insured an ade- 
quate water supply for the city. 

He has planned and directed far- 

reaching extensions of the sewer sys- 
tem, and his most recent undertaking 
was the planning of a new disposal 
plant, which probably would have been 
well under way by this time had not 
depression financial conditions block- 
ed the project. He had charge of the 
construction of Port Columbus, one 
of the country's major airports. 

Mr. Simpson leaves behind him not 
one but many material monuments. 
He represented a high type of the non- 
political public official whose service 
continues unaffected by changes in 
partisan control of government. 

Robert H. Simpson entered Buck- 
nell in September, 1891 with the class 
of 1895. During the fall term of 1893, 
as a junior, he withdrew from Bucknell 
to enter Cornell University in order 
to follow a course in Civil Engineer- 
ing. He was graduated from Cornell 
with the class of 1896. Entering the 
employ of the "Big Four" railroad at 
Cleveland, Ohio, immediately after 
graduation. He continued with that 
railroad as Engineer of Maintenance 
of Way until 1903 when he was ap- 
pointed to the engineering staff of the 
City Engineer of Columbus, Ohio. In 
1920 he was promoted to the office of 
City Engineer, which position he held 
at the time of his death on May 18, 
1933. He was recognized by members 
of his profession as an expert on street 
construction and lectured at many of 
the engineering schools of the coun- 
try, including West Point and Annap- 
olis, on this phase of engineering. The 
following editorial, taken from the 
Columbus Citizen indicates that his 
work was recognized as of an unusu- 
ally high order by his fellows:

Editor's Corner 

ANOTHER year begins for Alma 
Mater with her annual group of 
eager and bright eyed Fresh- 
men everywhere in evidence on the 
campus. They are a most likely look- 
ing lot, keen, awake, and thrilled by 
the newness of college and the beauty 
of the old campus. It keeps one young 
to come in contact with the ever young 
Freshman group each year. 

MORE than two hundred and 
thirty boys and girls are 
members of the Class of '37 
(think of it!) with the other three 
classes carrying the total enrolment 
for the year past the nine hundred 
mai-k, a decrease in the entire student 
body of less than one hundred stu- 
dents. The Freshman Class is smaller 
this year by forty odd than last year. 

THE present student body will wit- 
ness the fabrication of a large 
part of the new campus with The 
Literature Building now rising above 
ground as the first unit. The model 
plan of the entire future development 
illustrated in this issue attracts much 
attention as students, alumni, and vis- 
itors throng the exhibition room at 
The Library where the model is on 

THE intricate details of trees, 
roads, buildings, contours, and 
even a Reading train and the 
tracks are carried out to perfection 
in the scale model. The value of the 
model is to present in three dimen- 
sions what is so difficult to visualize 
from blue prints in two dimensions. 
All those who have seen the display 
are enthusiastic over the beauty of 
the proposed campus and buildings. 

SPECULATION is rife among older 
heads on the campus as to the 
date when even part of the dream 
will be realized in brick and mortar. 
Some guesses are even as far off as 
2033! We are optimist enough to have 
faith in a fine Board of Trustees and 
a growing alumni body to predict at 
least three of the buildings now con- 
structed only in miniature will be built 
before 1940 — and that is only six 
years from now — with many more 
occupied by 1946, the centenary cele- 
bration year for Bucknell. 

WHAT three buildings would be 
our selection for immediate 
construction? Easy! Library, 
Gymnasium, and Bucknell Inn. The 
Library for further fine work in the 
development of the arts. The Gymna- 
sium for modern facilities for mass 
physical education, and The Bucknell 
Inn for the entertainment of alumni 
and for profit! Of course, there are 
other needs, but are there others more 
important than these three ?

WHAT is the football dope? 
Great! The forty and more 
candidates for the varsity pos- 
sess more brain power than any squad 
we have seen in recent years — and 
there are no weaklings in the lot when 
it comes to physical strength. Ample 
reserve strength and stiff competition 
for every position on the team will 
produce touchdowns!

THE handsome gifts of Walter L. 
Hill, '98, to The Bucknell Library, 
have stimulated interest in the 
giving of collections and rare volumes 
to Bu(;knell. A move is under way 
now to form a "Friends of the Li- 
brary Association" patterned after 
similar organizations at other colleges. 

THIS magazine takes another bow

No. 1 





AS Bucknell University enters licr eighty-fourth 
year the national "New Deal" is being re- 
flected on the campus with new buildings, 
new curricula, and a new unit of the University at 

The construction of the first unit of the proposed 
campus definitely commits the University to a poHcy 
of growth and progress. It is confidently expected 
that before this first unit reaches completion funds 
will have been provided for other units to follow. 
The building program is designed for the future and 
is not merely a temporary step. 

The modernized and liberalized curricula affords 
ample opportunity to the new student to widen his 
horizon and grow with the times. The new educa- 
tional plan is designed for today and today's needs. 
No longer is the student living in a cloistered world 
of his own. The new courses, methods, and surveys 
make him a definite part of modern civilization. 

The poHcy of expansion evidenced by the Junior 
College at Wilkes-Barre has been an immediate suc- 
cess. More than one hundred and forty students are 
now in attendance at the new unit. This number 
added to the Lewisburg campus group gives a Fresh- 
man Class of almost four hundred students at the 
two Colleges. 

With the revival of business and the stabilization 
of world economics Bucknell stands to lead in the 
field of modern collegiate education. We shall have 
a physical plant second to none and a theory and 
practice of modernized education that will not only 
attract students but will be a model for progressive 
institutions to follow after we have blazed the trail. 


In the annual alumni magazines prize contest con- 
ducted by The American Alumni Council, The 
Bucknell Alumni Monthly scored again with a first 
prize for the best spot news story of the year._ The 
winning story was the account of The Old Main fire 
as written by the editor. A zippered leather port- 
folio graces the editorial desk of the magazine as 
evidence of the recognition accorded Bucknell. The 
editor of the magazine, Mr. A. G. Stoughton, '24, 
was honored by The American Alumni Council by 
election to the Board of Directors and appointment 
as Director of Conventions of this national organi- 
zation. The American Alumni Council includes 
some three hundred American colleges and univer- 
sities in its membership. 


Christy Mathewson, Jr., '27, and mother, returned 
to this country in August from China where the 
young flier had been hospitalized for the past six 
months as a result of his tragic crash in January 
while on his honeymoon. Although minus a leg and 
carr3nng his left arm in splints, Christy, Jr., was in 
excellent spirits and possessed of the Spartan cour- 
age and fortitude of his famous father. He is at 
present undergoing surgical treatment for the resto- 
ration of the use of his left arm in a New York City 
hospital. He plans to recuperate at his mother's 
home in Saranac Lake, N. Y. and probably visit the 
campus during the late Fall. 


A college landmark for the past two decades. 
The College Inn, under its genial host, Guy Payne, 
'09, is in danger of passing from the Bucknell scene. 
The sheriff has levied upon the property and at the 
expiration of the six weeks' grace, a forced sale may 
result some time after the middle of October. Since 
the "Old Main" fire the Inn has been left on a cam- 
pus side street instead of in the center of activities 
where it once was and business has consequently 
fallen oft". 


Three additions to the Bucknell faculty were ap- 
proved by The Board of Trustees in June meeting. 
They are Dr. Cyrus H. Karraker, assistant professor 
of History ; Dr. Robert C. Kintner, assistant profes- 
sor of Chemical Engineering: and Mr. Harold E. 
Cook, instructor in Piano. 

Dr. Karraker will take over the work in the his- 
tory department formerly under the direction of Dr. 
Henry T. Colestock, retired. Dr. Karraker holds 
his doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania. 

In the Department of Chemical Engineering Dr. 
Kintner will assist Dr. S. C. Ogburn. He holds his 
doctorate from Ohio State University. In the Music 
Department Mr. Cook will teach the piano classes 
of Miss Ruth Hlavaty who is spending a year 
abroad. Mr. Cook formerly taught at Franklin Col-

=<>H> <♦-«!= 


There have been a number of important developments in our program since school 
closed in June. Early in June a settlement was reached with the Insurance Companies for 
the loss on "Old Main". This made it possible for us to sign contracts for the new Litera- 
ture Building. Plans for this building had already been approved and were waiting. The 
contracts were signed immediately, and the new work was begun with a formal ground- 
breaking ceremony on July 19. 

When it was found that we could get the classrooms and offices for the faculty in the 
new Literature Building, we were then able to make a most important and significant de- 
cision. We were able to save "Old Main". This decision brought great relief and real joy 
to all of us. The solution of this problem seems to be a very happy and fortunate one. Our 
plan is to restore the East and West Wings for modern dormitory units for men and to re- 
build the "Old Main" center as a "Men's Union". The Union will provide social, recrea- 
tional and living facilities for our men. Such a LTnion is a real need on our campus, and 
when these facilities are provided, they will complete a very fine living section for our men 
students. Temporary roofs have been placed on the East and West Wings ; the windows 
have been restored; and the property has been cleaned. Thus it will be preserved until 
such time as we can secure the funds for its complete restoration. This project should make 
a great appeal to all our alumni. 

The completion and erection of a "Model" for our future developmental program is 
another of the important factors in our plan. This "Model" was delivered to us last week, 
and will be exhibited in the center of the main reading room of the Library. This "Model" 
is an excellent piece of work, and is truly an inspiration. My hope is that every alumnus 
and friend of the University can have an opportunity to see it as soon as possible. The 
erection of this "Model" completes the last major step in our planning for the future. Our 
problem from this point is to develop plans for its realization as rapidly as we are able. In 
this important phase of the work, I earnestly solicit the help of every alumnus and friend 
of Bucknell. Don't fail to return to the campus for our Homecoming on October 28th. 
There will be many things of interest for you at that time. 

Faithfully yours,

Literature Building First Unit To Rise 

THE architectural and campus development 
program for Bucknell was launched on July 
19, 1933 when the sponsor of the plan, Presi- 
dent Homer Price Rainey, turned the first spadeful 
of earth on the site of the Literature Building, which 
is now under construction. The occasion was 
marked with academic dignity and ritual as the en- 
tire faculty and student body of the Summer School 
marched to the new campus site for the ceremonies. 
The invocation was offered by Dr. \\'. H. Cole- 
man of the Department of English. The Honorable 
Albert W. Johnson, '96, Chairman of the Building 
Committee of the Board of Trustees then presented 
to President Rainey the spade to be used in break- 
ing the ground. He emphasized the important part 
the building program will play in carrying out the 
future policy of the University. He declared that 
this day marked the beginning of a new epoch in 
the life of Bucknell and predicted that it would mean 
an even greater future for an already noble and 
honored University. 

"A New Era" 

In accepting the spade Dr. Rainey congratulated 
Judge Johnson and the Board of Trustees for their 
wisdom and vision in inaugurating the new develop- 
ment for Bucknell. "This is truly the beginning of 
a new era in American colleges and for Bucknell in 
particular," he said. He pointed out that we have 
long been occupied with conquering a physical 
frontier and that now we must turn our attention 
to the new social, political, cultural, moral and spir- 
itual frontier. "Our problem now is not to conquer 
an external environment, but to labor for those 
values which enrich and ennoble our lives," he de- 

The president commented upon the suitability of 
erecting a Literature building as the first step in 
the University's program and then proceeded to dig 
the tirst spadeful of earth, after which he handed the 
spade to Dr. Harry W. Robbins, Chairman of the 
Language and Literature group. 

Dr. Robbins in turn expressed his pleasure in 
witnessing the beginning of a new building which 
will house the group that he represents. He pointed 
out that of the five major teaching groups at Buck- 
nell only two. Literature and Social Science, have 
been without homes of their own and said that he 

hoped a building for the Social Science group could 
be provided soon. 

Led by the Baptist Church choir, the students 
and faculty members then sang the Alma Mater. 
Dr. Rainey called upon Dr. Raymond M. West, 
pastor of the local Baptist Church, who pronounced 
the benediction. 

Construction Begins 

The next morning, July 20, excavation work was 
started for the new building. Hegeman Harris Co., 
Inc., of New York are the builders with Robert 
Dawson, '23, superintendent in charge. Air. and 
Mrs. Dawson and son, Robert, Jr., have taken up 
residence in Lewisburg for the duration of the con- 
struction work on the building. 

Prior to the concrete work an average of twenty- 
two men were employed on the project. At the 
present time (September 8) some forty men are en- 
gaged in the work of rearing Bucknell's newest 
building. The various sub-contractors on the job 
include Shipper's Car Line of Milton for steel ; Wm. 
F. Nelson of Washington, D. C, on concrete ; Amer- 
ican Warming and Ventilating Co., of Elmira, N. Y., 
on heating and ventilating ; Vanderlinde Electric 
Corp., of Rochester, N. Y., on electrical work; and 
John A. Clemens of Milton, on excavation. 

Three-fifths of the structure pictured is being con- 
structed, the remaining two-fifths to be built when 
funds are available. The units under construction 
include an auditorium in what will be the central 
wing, six classrooms, four offices and a library on 
the ground floor and six more classrooms, one large 
social room, and thirteen faculty offices on the sec- 
ond floor of the long present central structure. The 
three-fifths of the building under construction will 
be two hundred and eleven feet long with the two 
wings one hundred and two feet deep. The audi- 
torium will seat four hundred and nine people on the 
main floor and fifty more in a small balcony. All 
modern broadcasting, reception and sound devices 
are being installed in this unit. 

Mr. Thomas Tash, representative of Mr. J. Fred- 
eric Larson, Architect, is a frequent visitor to the 

Bison Brick 

A specially designed brick manufactured by the 
Spring Garden Brick Co., of Reading, is being used

in the construction. The brick is colored after the 
type used in the Monticello home of Thomas Jeffer- 
son and is antique in character. The manufacturer 
has called this new brick the Bison in tribute to 
Bucknell. The brick are being laid with recessed 
mortar joints to create a shadow effect to add to 
their character. Indiana Limestone trim is to be 
used on porches and cornices with A'ermont granite 
steps and sills. 

Construction has progressed with only five days 
of rain to the date of this account. It is expected 
that the building may be occupied during the early 
weeks of the second semester of the present aca- 
demic year, sometime in February or Slarch, 1934. 

Old Main Preserved 

The work of erecting a temporary roof over the 
burned wings of "Old Main" was completed early 
in July while the excavation work in the central 
unit nears completion now to afford the old build- 
ing a fairly presentable appearance. The complete 
restoration into modern dormitory rooms in the 
wings and a Student Union in the main structure 
is for the future. Mr. Larson, University Architect 
has prepared sketches for the new treatment of "Old 
Main" with slight changes on the Quadrangle side 
which will make it blend w"ith the new campus 

The Quadrangle side of "Old Main" will be re- 
stored with the motif of the four columns of the 
front of the old structure to make a double entry. 
This treatment will beautify the building on the 
quadrangle side and keep it in harmony with the 
entire building program. Detailed plans, specifica- 
tions, and drawings are in process of completion 
now for the transformation of "Old Main" into The 
Men's Union. 


Back number files of The Bucknell Alumni 
Monthly which went through the "Old Main" fire 
a 3'ear ago have been uncovered in the debris of the 
ruins. Only one volume is completed destroyed — 
that of May, 1929. The Alumni Office would appre- 
ciate receipt of any copies of this issue, Vol. X, No. 
8 that are available. 



Plans are maturing for the eighth annual confer- 
ence on education at Bucknell. Last year's attend- 
ance, which surpassed all previous records will prob- 
ably be broken this year. 

The purpose of the gathering will be to build up 
morale on the part of teachers, patrons and friends 
of the schools. With this in view, two new and im- 
portant additional sections are being organized and 
programs built. One of these is for school directors 
and the other for parent teacher associations. Per- 
sons of state and national prominence are expected 
to address these bodies. 

Speakers of national and international reputation 
this year are George Drayton Strayer of Columbia 
LTniversity, professor of school administration, and 
John \V. Withers, dean of the school of Education 
of the New York University. Both men are known 
at Bucknell. Dean Withers spoke here at the first 
conference in 1926 and Dr. Strayer, a Bucknell 
alumnus, received an honorary degree here a few 
years ago. 

General sessions will be held at two o'clock and 
eight o'clock on Friday and at eleven o'clock on Sat- 
urday. President Francis B. Haas of Bloomsburg 
State Teachers College, will speak at the Saturday 
general session and be the guest of honor at a ban- 
quet of Kappa Phi Kappa, professional Education 

Teacher training and secondary education sessions 
will be held at four o'clock, Friday, and elementary 
education and subject matter conferences on Satur- 
day morning. 

A big feature of the conference will be a continu- 
ance of the innovation of last year, a banquet at the 
W^omen's College dining room. The attendance last 
year was about 125 and it is expected that it will be

Large Class Enters New University Unit at Wilkes-B^rre 

By J. H. Eisenhduer, '05, Director 

ON Thursday, September 14, the first classes 
met in the newly estabhshed Junior College 
at Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. When this 
was written, one hundred forty-two students had 
enrolled. Eighty-two per cent of these students 
graduated in the upper three-fifths of their respective 
secondary school classes. About sixty-four per cent 
are men. Registration on Wednesday, September 
13, was preceded by two days of orientation. During 
these two days, placement tests were given and the 
students were assembled for Bucknell songs and 
cheers. Tuesday morning President Rainey deliv- 
ered a challenging address to the entire student 

Monday evening a reception was given in honor 
of the first class to enter the new Junior College. 
Two hundred eighty-three stu- 
dents, parents, and faculty were 
present. Professor Paul G. Stolz, 
furnished a program of music that 
was very much appreciated by all 
those present. This program con- 
sisted of vocal solos by Miss Inez 
M. Robison, Miss Hazel Gravell, 
Mr. Herbert Lloyd, and a piano 
solo by Miss Janet Workman. A 
reel of pictures depicting life at 
Bucknell was shown by Forrest 
Brown. Freddie Kindig and his 
orchestra furnished music for the 

The work of the freshman year 
only is being oft'ered during the 
present college year. In the fall 
of 1934 the sophomore year will 
be added. It is- not planned to 
carry the work beyond the second 
year of college. The curricula and 
courses of study in the Junior Col- 
lege, with the single exception of 
the science survey, are identical 
with those offered on the campus 
at Lewisburg. The lectures in the survey courses 
are given by the same men at both institutions. 

The faculty for the Junior College has been very 
largely selected from the Bucknell University fac- 
ulty and consists of Byron S. Hollinshead, John S. 
Gold, William F. Schuyler, Majel Brooks, Harold 
A. Shaffer, J. Orin Oliphant, Forrest E. Keller, and 
Vincent McCrossan. Mr. George R. Faint is Regis- 

The Junior College is considered an integral part 
of Bucknell University. The credits earned will be 
Bucknell University credits. The State Superin- 
tendent of Public Instruction of Pennsylvania, Dr. 
James N. Rule, recognizes this fact when he writes 
thus to President Rainey: "I note your inquiry re- 
garding the accreditment of the work done by stu- 
dents in the Junior College center to be established 
by Bucknell University at Wilkes-Barre. My un- 
derstanding is that the Junior College center at 
Wilkes-Barre is an integral part of Bucknell Uni- 

John H. Eisenhauer, '05 

versity and has been duly authorized by your Board 
of Trustees ; that the University officials will be re- 
sponsible for the maintenance of appropriate; stand- 
ards governing all work done at this center ; and that 
all credits for work done at this center vvill be cer- 
tified by the Registrar of the University as regular 
standard University credits for which the Univer- 
sity assumes full responsibility." 

The idea of providing college instruction for 
Wilkes-Barre and vicinity has been in the minds of 
progressive people in this community for several 
years. A committee of Rotarians has been definitely 
working to this end. Man}' others have been wish- 
ing for such an institution. The large enrollment is 
evidence of the real need. 

The Junior College is primarily a community in- 
stitution. It provides higher edu- 
cation at very much lower cost 
to the student, although the tui- 
tion rate is the same as at Lewis- 
burg. Students may secure two 
years of a college education with- 
out leaving home. This is con- 
sidered an important factor be- 
cause many young people are still 
in the adolescent stage of their 
development while doing the first 
two years of college work. The 
influence of the home is especially 
significant at this time. 

A committee of public school 
superintendents and principals 
called upon President Rainey and 
presented to him the desires and 
demands of the people of this 
community. After giving due 
consideration to the suggestions 
made, Professor Frank G. Davis, 
head of the Department of Edu- 
cation, was sent to Wilkes-Barre 
to make a detailed survey of the 
situation. Professor Davis spent 
the month of June interviewing superintendents, 
secondary school principals, and citizens. He ad- 
dressed many student assemblies. His addresses 
were greeted with enthusiasm. His interviews con- 
vinced him that there was a real demand for a jun- 
ior college. He accordingly made a very favorable 
report to President Rainey and the action of the 
Board of Trustees definitely established the insti- 

Although everybody seemed to be enthusiastic 
about the idea of a junior college near home, the 
enrollment during the early period seemed to be 
rather slow. One of the reasons for this was the 
fact that while everyone seemed interested in the 
possibility of the junior college, many were skeptical 
concerning the value of the credits earned. Every- 
where one was met with the question: "Will other 
colleges accept your credits?" Some even doubted 
the possibility of transferring to Bucknell Univer-

Lead 1933 Varsity In Ten Game Schedule 

TWO captains, Nicholas Farina, center, of Steel- 
ton, and Owen James, guard, of Scranton, led 
the forty-three candidates for the 1933 Bucknell 
varsity football team onto the practice field on Sep- 
tember 5 to hear a welcoming talk from Coach Carl 
G. Snavely. 

The co-captains are two of the eight seniors on 
the squad and also number among the seventeen 
lettermen who will compete for first string positions 
against able competition from a similar number of 
sophomores who went through an undefeated Frosh 

schedule last season. 
Sixteen juniors make 
ip the balance of the 

The positions repre- 
sented by the candi- 
dates make up a well 
balanced squad list with 
ample reserve strength 
in all departments. 
T here are thirteen 
backs, ten ends, eight 
tackles, eight guards, 
and four centers. Only 
four lettermen were lost 
through graduation in 

Practice sessions will 
be held daily in Memo- 
rial Stadium with a 
double stint for the two 
weeks prior to the op- 
ening of the class- 
rooms on September 
nineteenth. Three days 
of single sessions pre- 
cede the first game with 
VVaynesburg College on 
the twenty-second un- 
der the arc lights in 
Memorial Stadium. 

Mose Ouinn, '29, 
and Max Reed, '24, are 
assistant coaches this season with Ouinn replacing 
Malcolm Musser, '19, as Freshman Coach. Musser 
resigned to accept the position as Head Coach of 
Basketball and Assistant Director of Physical Edu- 

Ten Games 

The ten game schedule for the Bisons contains 
no set-ups. Every game will mean intensive pre- 
paration and hard thorough football. The followers 
of the team are assured of ten exhibitions of genuine 
competition with every opponent ranking as an able 
football machine. The opener with Waynesburg, 
small college conference champions of 1932, should 
provide some anxious moments and plenty of thrills 
for both teams and the spectators. Waynesburg 
boasts of two successive victories over Penn State 
in the past two years. Lebanon Valley as the second 
game will see the Alma Mater of Coach Snavely 
lined up against his pupils. Reports from the 

Owen James 

"Dutch" camp indicate the strongest team there in 
recent years. The game will be played Friday night, 
September 29. 

Three Away From Home 

The third night game will see the Bisons in action 
in Pittsburgh against Duquesne on the night of Oc- 
tober 6 for their first away from home encounter of 
the season. Two more week ends in succession find 
them away from home with Villanova acting as host 
in Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon, October 14, 
and Lafayette in the 
same role on October 
21 at Easton. 


The foregoing games 
are all prelude to the 
real classic of the sea- 
son when "Pop" War- 
ner brings his first 
T e m p 1 c University 
team to the Memorial 
Stadium for the big A- 
1 u m n i Homecoming 
game. Athletic author- 
ities expect a crowd ui' 
at least ten thousand tu 
witness this game. 

The annual charity 
game in Scranton has 
been changed to fur- 
nish a new opponent 
for the Bisons in the 
Electric City. Western 
Maryland will furnish 
the opposition on No- 
vember 4 in place of 

North vs. South 

Furman University 
of South Carolina jour- 
neys to Lewisburg on November 11 to aid in the 
presentation of an intersectional tilt for the edifica- 
tion of sports writers. 

The final game of the season brings an old Tartar 
in Washington and Jefferson to Lewisburg on No- 
vember 25, the Saturday before Thanksgiving. 

When the story of this season is written it will 
be referred to as a most unusual and 3'et difficult 
schedule. Every game won will be a triumph and 
every one lost will be a "tough one". The reserve 
strength of the Bisons cheers the fans as they enter 
this 1933 season. The able aces of two past seasons 
are also counted upon for thrills and touchdowns. 
Coach Snavely in his usual taciturn manner has no 
prognostications to offer and this writer shall not 
risk any sweeping statements except to predict that 
there will be plenty of good football played by a 
strong Orange and Blue machine composed of a 
fine lot of men who will go into every game to play 
hard and clean until the final whistle blows.

Kappa Phi Kappa, professional education fra- 
ternity, presented a program this Summer for the 
first time. A luncheon meeting was held early in the 
Summer to plan the program. Following this an 
initiation of twenty candidates, all graduate stu- 
dents, took place. This ceremony was held at the 
Sunbury Country Club. Dr. D. Montfort Melchior, 
for eleven years a member of the Summer Session 
teaching staiT, was initiated and delivered the ad- 
dress of the evening. 

At this time officers were elected for the direction 
of the remaining Summer program. Henry S. Jones, 
'05, superintendent of schools at Plymouth, Pa., was 

chosen president ; Willard E. Ackley, principal of 
the high school at Sunbury, vice-president ; and Fred 
W. Diehl, '31, county superintendent of Montour 
County, secretary. 

Following the intiation, two meetings were held. 
At one of these with about 30 men in attendance, a 
fun meeting, the faculty of the department of edu- 
cation were put on the rack and given a dose of their 
own medicine. On the last Monday evening of the 
Summer Session an open meeting was held with 
Dr. Lochtenberger, of the University of Pennsyl- 
vania as speaker. An unusually large crowd was 
present. Plans are already in motion to carry on an 
effective program ne.xt Summer.

President Rdiney Outlines Plan In New York Times Feature Article 

The Model 
The Plan for the Future Bucknell Now on Exhibition at the Library 

The following article from the pen 
of President Homer Price Rainey was 
printed in the New York Times under 
date of Sunday, July 23 and attracted 
nation wide attention: 

That further revolutionary changes are 
coming in the liberal arts college is widely 
predicted. Some ncm' being introduced at 
Bucknell University, at Lewisburg, Pa., are 
described below by its president. 


President of Bucknell University 

Among educational leaders and oth- 
ers interested in the fate of the liberal 
college there is at present considera- 
ble discussion of its aims and pur- 
poses. Some critics say that its lead- 
ers do not have a clear conception of 
its functions, and hence, do not know 
where it is going. Still other more 
severe critics are saying that the four- 
year liberal arts college has no longer 
a function in contemporary society and 
is inevitably doomed. 

With the latter point of view the 
writer has no sympathy. The pro- 
grams and methods of the college 
have been ill-adapted to social needs, 
but the values of a genuine liberal 
culture are of greater importance to- 
day than at any time in our national 
history. There is serious need, how- 
ever, for a redefining of the functions 
of the college, and for a thorough re- 
vision of the institution to meet mod- 
ern social demands. 

A liberal arts program should deal 
with the whole life as men are living 
it today. It should make men and 
women intelligent about every factor 
of contemporary life. It should make 
them masters of their environment to 
the degree that they can control and 
direct it toward chosen goals. 

A Modernized Program 

When the liberal college is truly 
functioning, what should it be doing? 
It should, first of all, be an arts col- 
lege. The first two arts to be con- 
sidered are landscape and architecture. 
TTie external environment of the cam- 
pus must be beautiful. This estab- 
lishes the tone for everything else. A 
beautiful campus is itself a significant 

Art in the external enxdronment 
should be accompanied by a represen- 
tation of all the other arts in the cur- 
riculum. They should be there on a 
par with every other subject, and their 
curricula and" methods of instruction 
should be determined by their own 

Furthermore, the expressive and 
creative functions of the arts must 
be given full recognition. For exam- 
ple, students in Bucknell University 
have this year been participating in 
a number of art functions. There is a 
symphony orchestra which has one full 
rehearsal each week under skilled 
leadership. It has given several pro- 
grams during the year on the campus 
and elsewhere. It has combined with 
a large mixed chorus for such ora- 
torios as Handel's "Messiah," Bach's 
"Christmas Oratorio," and Mendels- 
sohn's "St. Paul." Students receive 
credit toward an arts degree for this 

A Call for Creative Activity 

In addition to these functions the 
department of music has contributed 
a great deal to the cultural enjoy- 
ment and atmosphere of the campus 
as well as the surrounding community 
by recitals and chapel programs dur- 
ing the year by members of the fac- 
ulty who are artist teachers. Ten or 
more such recitals have been given. 
This is the arts college functioning 
through music. 

The other arts should occupy a sim- 
ilar relationship to the campus and 
community. First of all there should 
be creative artists on the faculty. In 
the past, colleges have had only art, 
literary and music critics. Very few, 
if any, of them have had either the 
desire or the ability to create. Col- 
leges and universities take great pride 
in having on the faculty research 
scientists, and even demand productive 
scholarship of their men in various 
fields. Why should not the same en- 
couragement be given to creative 
work in the arts? It is the writer's 
intention to do just that at Bucknell 

A college will really function when 
it reaches the level of creative produc- 
tivity in all fields. Our method of 

teaching literature is a good case in 
point. In most instances it is taught 
by persons who have never even at- 
tempted to produce a piece of litera- 

What would it do for literature in 
America if we should insist that teach- 
ers of it should also be producers of 
their art ? It would smash the present 
system to smithereens, but it would 
doubtless pave the way for a great 
period of creative literature. There 
are colleges that have been teaching 
English and American literature for 
a century or more that do not have 
one creative wi'iter among their alum- 
ni. This ought to be ample evidence 
that something is wrong. 

Creative Social Sciences 

There are a few signs that this is 
being recognized by the colleges. Last 
year Thornton Wilder was a member 
of the faculty of the University of 
Chicago, and recently Knox College 
and Bucknell University each had Miss 
Ida M. Tarbell on their faculties for 
a period. Robert Frost, the poet, has 
served in a similar capacity at Am- 
herst and the University of Michigan. 

How will the arts college function 
in the social sciences? At this point 
the entire philosophy and program of 
the college must be reformulated. In 
the past the social program of the 
college has been largely passive. It 
has taught history, economics, gov- 
ernment and education, etc., but the 
methodology has been quite theoretical 
and academic. It has taken no re- 
sponsibility for the formulation of a 
social program. It has attempted to 
teach' its students a social and moral 
idealism wholly out of harmony with 
the economic and political institutions 
of society. 

It has thus produced a moral con- 
flict in the minds of its students that 
has almost incapacitated them for ac- 
tive social, economic and political 
leadership. The educated man or wo- 
man either shrinks from active leader- 
ship or is forced to remain on the side- 

The social sciences must become 
creative. They must turn their in- 
telligence to social objectives and to 
human planning. They must evolve 



social programs and set up and con- 
duct experiments to achieve those 
predetermined ends. 

Opportunity for Experiment 

How can these functions be per- 
formed? There are numerous possi- 
bilities. In the first place most col- 
lege campuses, and in particular those 
outside the urban areas, are quite 
definite social units and offer unusu- 
ally fine opportunities for social ex- 
perimentation. The organization and 
administration of student government 
provide an excellent opportunity, so 
does the administration of the college 

A campus with 1,000 persons in a 
small town, for example, provides an 
unusual opportunity to experiment 
with socialized medicine. The fact is 
that at Bucknell we are now operating 
a fine system of the kind. Each of a 
thousand students pays S6 per year 
as a medical fee. The university main- 
tains a full-time resident physician, 
three full-time graduate nurses, and a 
hospital with fifteen beds. The stu- 
dent's fee of S6 entitles him to a med- 
ical examination and all medical ser- 

vices, save major operations, that he 
may need. With a little additional 
financial aid these services may be ex- 
tended to include full clinical facilities. 

The opportunities for such experi- 
mentation extend beyond the local 
campus, but it will require the co- 
operation of various groups and gov- 
ernmental units. The administration 
of relief, housing problems, health and 
recreational programs are only a few 
examples of such cooperation with 
towns and communities. The doing 
of such things will raise the social 
sciences to the level of creativeness, 
and will represent the liberal college 
functioning at its best. 

There is another field in which the 
liberal college may function effective- 
ly. It is in providing a health, recrea- 
tion and physical education program 
for all students. The recreational pro- 
gram, for example, might well include 
practically everything that adults en- 
joy doing, from individual hiking to 
"the most formal institutional func- 
tions, from games to trips to week- 
end lodges in near-by mountains, and 
a well-balanced social program for 
dances, parties, etc. 

In the realm of ethics, morality and 
religion similarly, the liberal college 
must become creative. 

The New Teaching 

In order to make it possible for 
members of college faculties to do cea- 
ative work, it will be necessary to 
change rather radically the present 
emphasis upon the teaching function. 
Burdensome teaching loads will have 
to be reduced. This can be done with- 
out any serious loss. Colleges, at 
present, attempt to do entirely too 
much teaching and do not place enough 
emphasis upon learning. College 
teaching could be reduced 50 per cent 
with fine results, if students were 
made to assume that much additional 
responsibility for their education. This 
would have several splendid effects 
upon the college program. It would 
substitute a good educational philoso- 
phy for a poor one, and it would re- 
lease much of faculty energy, now 
used for drudgery, for creative work. 

Thus, when the liberal college is 
functioning creatively in all its areas, 
it becomes a social institution of un- 
usual significance. 


A pictorial representation of the westward prog- 
ress of the pioneer in this country is clearly given 
in a new historical map of the United States of 
America entitled, "The Conquest of a Continent". 
It was published in May, 1933, sponsored by the Na- 
tional Fellowship Appeal Committee of the Amer- 
ican Association of University Women, the chau"- 
man of which is Mrs. Frederick G. Atkinson of Min- 
neapolis, Minn. Sale of the map is handled by the 
Association's branches throughout the country, with 
all profits dedicated to the Million Dollar Fellowship 

A bird's eye view of the whole pageantry of the 
nation's history rewards even casual inspection ot 
this map, which is as pleasing pictorially as it is ac- 
curate, historically, the map has a broad appeal, 
both as a document of historical importance and as 
a decorative wall picture. Interpretative panels 
border the map, those at sides and bottom picturing 
twenty-eight significant scenes in the country's his- 
tory, with three scenes at the top showing three de- 
termining factors responsible for its development. 
The peoples of Europe are pictured arriving here as 
emigrants, "bringing with them their age-old cultures 
and customs to be modified under new surround- 
ings." A second scene at the top pictures the early 
settlers gazing upon the panorama of free land 
spread before them — free land, the conquest and 
settlement of which "determined the course of A- 
merican history, changed the thoughts and habits 
of a people, created the Manifest Destiny of a World 
Power." The third picture shows airplanes, modern 
trains, factories and other inventions of the mind of 
man which "conquered the limitations of time, space 
and human strength." 

The body of the map proper has been presented 
in the modern spirit, with large areas of flat color 
and the elimination of unimportant detail. There is 
clear designation of the various routes by water and 
by land which were traversed by hunters, traders, 
missionaries, settlers and industriahsts, and the map 
defines the larger areas of the country in the order 
of their annexation. A significant feature is the list- 

ing of "milestones" on the way towards the develop- 
ment of universal education, starting with the j^ear 
1636, when Harvard College was "founded by the 
Puritans to train the clergy", and closing with the 
years 1847 and 1850, when Iowa and Utah, respec-

sity at Lewisburg. Current reports concerning the 
impossibility of transferring credits were contra- 
dicted by generous advertising in the daily news- 
papers and b}' frequent news releases. Personal in- 
terviews by our contact men definitely assured pro- 
spective students of the possibility of transferring 
credits. Students began to enroll. The acceptance 
of students, and the publication of this acceptance, 
brought an increasing number of applications for 
admission. The net result was 142 as given above. 
Since the above was written, word has come that 
eight more students from Hazleton will enroll Mon- 
day morning, September 18.

Dr. Amos S. Hershey, former head 
of the Department of Political Science 
and International Law at Indiana Uni- 
versity, and a member of President 
Wilson's peace commission at Paris 
in 1918-19, died on June 12, 1933 at 
the State Hospital in Madison, Ind. 
after a long illness of Bright's disease 
and nephritis. He was 65 years old. 

Dr. Hershey was born at Hershey, 
Pa. on July 11, 1867. He was a cousin 
of Milton N. Hershey, chairman of the 
board of the Hershey Chocolate Cor- 
poration. He retired a few years ago 
because of failing health, after being 
a member of the Indiana University 
faculty since 1895. 

Surviving are a widow, the former 
Lillian Wilcox, and a daughter, Mrs. 
James Russell. 

After leaving Bucknell, Dr. Hershey 
went to Harvard University. 

He was graduated from Harvard in 
1892 with an A. B. degree, studied

Dr. Amos S. Hershey, '91 

law at the Harvard Law School in 
1891-92, and then went to Heidelberg 
University, where, in 1894, he received 
a Ph. D. degree, and later spent a 
year at the University of Paris. 

He went to the University of In- 
diana in 1895 as Assistant Professor 
of Political Science. Five years later 
he became Associate Professor of Eu- 
ropean History and Politics, and in 
1905 Professor of Political Science and 
International Law. In 1914 he was 
appointed head of the newly created 
department of political science at the 

Dr. Hershey spent a year, in 1913- 
14, as a fellow of the Kahn Founda- 
tion, travelling in Eui'ope and the Ori- 
ent. After his return from the Paris 
peace conference, he lectured at Har- 
vard on government for a year. 

Dr. Hershey often spoke on interna- 
tional topics at various gatherings. In 
1916, at a meeting of the American 
Society of International Law in Wash- 
ington, he criticized the unrestricted 
use of submarines by Germany and 
urged the formation after the war of 
an international high court to regulate 
the use of submarine and mines. 

In 1928 he was the guest of honor 
at a reception given by the Mexico 
City Bar Association. Americans, he 
said at that time, did not want inter- 
vention in Mexico or territorial expan- 
sion, and were good friends of Mexico. 

Some of His Books 

Dr. Hershey was the author of sev- 
eral works. Among them were: "Kon- 

trolle der Gezetzeburg in den 
Vereinigten Staaten von Nord 
Amerika," "The International 
Law and Diplomacy of the Rus- 
so-Japanese War," "The Essen- 
tials of International Public 
Law," "Modern Japan," and 
"The Essentials of International 
Law and Organization." In 1918 
he and Frank M. Anderson wrote 
"Handbook for the Diplomatic 
History of Europe, Asia and Af- 
rica, 1870-1914," a United States 
Government publication. He also 
contributed to publications on 
political science and law. 

He was a member of the A- 
merican Political Science Asso- 
ciation, the American Society of 
Interational Law, the American 
Historical Association, the In- 
diana Council of International 
Relations and the Authors Club 
of London.

plication of diseases. 

Rev. William Anderson Crawford,

he graduated in 1895 at Bucknell Uni- 

Mr. Crawford had been licensed to 
preach in 1891, by the First Baptist 
Church of Clarion. Following his 
graduation at Bucknell University, he 
completed the three year course at 
Crozer Theological Seminary and was 
graduated therefrom in 1898. He was 
ordained a minister on April 6, 1899, 
at Parksville, N. Y., in the Baptist

The Cincinnati Times-Star carried 
the following article in their "Who's 
News Today" column about Dr. George 
D. Strayer: 

Dr. George D. Strayer of Teachers' 
College of Columbia University, de- 
serves some kind of a trophy for the 
way he has plugged for education 
since the start of the depression. Dr. 
Strayer is more or less of an old-line 
educator, never deeply engrossed in 
modern theories, who observed that 
education would be one of the major 
casualties of the smash-up unless 
somebody did something about it. He 
has pleaded for Federal and State aid, 
and for the maintenance of standards, 
and he now presents to the national 
conference on the financing of educa- 
tion an informed and spirited appeal 
for Governmental action, in accord 
with his previous pleas for Federal 
aid without control. 

Dr. Strayer has been on the Teach- 
ers' College faculty for twenty-eight 
year. A native of Wayne, Pa., he was 
graduated from Bucknell, and later 
took his doctor's degree at Columbia. 
He is the author of many books on 
education, an earnest and diligent ad- 
vocate of basic and adequate provi- 
sions for public education.

Editor^s Corner 

THIS is the special "Come Home for 
Homecoming" issue. As if such 
were needed with five thousand 
loyal Bucknellians just pawing the air 
in anticipation of the big day. What 
was that date? Oh! Yes! October 28! 

EVERY indication points to one of 
the best games and one of the 
best crowds and THE best pro- 
gram ever arranged for Homecoming. 
Our best advice would be to get here 
Friday in time to enter the golf tour- 
nament so that the week-end enjoy- 
ment need not all be crammed into 
Saturday. (You can still play your 
golf Saturday morning in order to get 
a shot at the fine prizes). 

THE Alumni Banquet to follow the 
game is arousing wide interest. 
One must eat and we have been 
promised a fine meal at the Dining 
Hall at six p. m. There will be no 
"requests" and only one short after 
dinner talk — that by President Rainey 
who wishes to meet the alumni and 
recite to them some of his plans for 
the future. We can guarantee that 
those who wish to drive home yet that 
evening will be on their way by eight 
thirty o'clock! 

AS for game predictions we are al- 
ways Scotch and cautious. We 
do know, however, and pass it on 
for what it is worth, that "Pop" Warn- 
er of Temple never coached a poor 
football machine! Likewise and even 
more so Carl Snavely knows a thing 
or two and his team CAN score!

Entered as second-class matter December 23, 1930 at the post 
office at Lewisburg, Pa., under the Act of August 24, 1912. 

IN the midst of writing- this corner 
we received the golf trophies and 
only by sheer mental will power 
and the arguments of our secretary 
were we kept writing instead of going 
out to practice a few pitch shots! The 
plaque for low gross (anybody's prize) 
would look great over any mantle — 
and for the hot shots who only in 
pars and birdies the low net cup would 
not be sneezed at! 

THE singing by the student body 
last year in The Baptist Church of 
"The Pagan Love Song" was 
matched at Convocation this year 
when the faculty paraded into the edi- 
fice to the strains of "The War March 
of the Priests". 

WHETHER John Erskine "got it" 
or not is still a moot question 
but he did a little polite knifing 
of pedagogues and he might have been 
"tuned up" by that prelude on the 

WE say an editorial "Amen" to 
John Erskine's philosophy of 
"Learn to Live". His address at 
Convocation, reported in another col- 
umn, was one of the best in years on 
this old campus. His refreshing mod- 
ern viewpoints blew away a lot of 
musty cob webs that stifle the air at 
educational institutions. 

WHILE we are writing of air you 
just must come back to see all 
the air that is being filled by the 
new Literature Building. It is rising 
now to the roof timbers out there to- 
ward the Stadium. One becomes in- 
creasingly proud of Alma Mater as 
she puts on her new dress of build- 

IS there any use of our going further 
with our arguments ? You WANT 
to come to Homecoming! All 
right! COME! It's your party and 
we need YOU to make it a success.

at the dinner following the football game. Invita- 
tions have been extended to all alumni and alumnae 
clubs to send representatives in order that the mes- 
sage of the president may be relayed to all Bucknell 

The dinner will be served promptly at 6 P. M. in 
the Dining Hall at The Women's College on St. 
George Street. The menu will consist of cocktail, 
chicken a la king, salad, potatoes, cauliflower, ice 
cream, cakes, coffee, mints, and the nominal price of 
fifty cents per plate has been set to insure a capacity 
crowd. Reservations are now being received. Lim- 
ited accommodations in the Dining Hall make these 
advance reservations necessary. 

President Homer Price Rainey will acquaint 
alumni with the future plans and policy of the Uni- 
versity. There will be no "requests" of any sort and 
the dinner is planned as a general meeting place for 
all alumni. President Rainey will also present the 
Homecoming Alumni Golf Tournament awards at 
the dinner. 

on the night of Friday, October 6. Bucknell played 
good football — they had to to keep the score at 
six to nothing — but not one single "break" came 
the way of the Bisons. We believe that the entire 
season will see no such "breakless" game as this 
one. The Bisons came out of the fray "bloody but 
unbowed" as they took the bitter cup that Fate had 
handed them. There are six more games !

senting to the Alumni at this time our program for 
the future. 

Vours for a Happy Homecoming, 



Sons and daughters of the University do not have

minded of the date 

Saturday, October 28,1933 

Plans are definitely formed to make this day the 
occasion for the greatest celebration by alumni in 
Bucknell history. 

A fine group of boys, coached by Carl Snavely, will 
act as hosts to Pop Warner and his Temple University 
Owls. Look for plenty of real football entertainment. 

Golf; very impromptu gatherings of former college friends

which will mean much to the future of Bucknell. 

A week-end spent with real friends under ideal conditions.

Trophies to be Awarded in Annual Homecoming 
Golf Matches, October 27-23 

AL A R G E silver 
plaque properly in- 
scribed and a mod- 
ern golf cup will be 
awarded as tournament 
prizes to the low net and 
low gross scorers in the 
annual Alumni Home- 
coming Golf Tournament 
on October 27 and 28. The 
prizes are on exhibition 
at The Alumni Office 
and will be later display- 
ed at the Golf Club. 

All alumni, regardless 
of class, degree, or resi- 
dence are eligible for 
competition. A tourna- 
ment fee of $1.00 will be 
charged to defray ex- 
penses. No qualifying 
round will be necessary 
and awards will be based 
upon eighteen consecu- 
tive holes, played either 
Friday afternoon or Sat- 
urday morning. Mail 
registration for the tour- 
nament will be accepted. 
Home club handicaps 
will be used in comput- 
ing the low net scores. 

The tournament is 
strictly for alumni and faculty although the course 
will be open to friends, students, parents, and vis- 
itors with tournament players having precedence on 
the tee. 

A number of the larger Bucknell Alumni Clubs 
are sending teams to participate in the tournament.

of the stalwarts who 
will welcome the visitors 
and arrange the flights. 
The awards for the 
tournament will be pre- 
sented at the Alumni 
Banquet after the game 
by President Rainey. 
The best prize, the 
plaque for low gross, has 
been termed "anybody's 
award" with the dub on 
a par with the profes- 
sional in shooting at par 
minus a handicap. The 
cup for low net will, of 
course, go to the best in 
the field and we under- 
stand that New York, 
Philadelphia, and Pitts- 
burgh all are sending 
brothers with explicit in- 
structions to bring it 
The Club House will be golfers headquarters for 
two days, October 27 and 28. Ample dressing rooms 
are open without charge and a special crew of cad- 
dies is now being recruited by the caddy master, 
Harold Evans. Every arrangement possible will be 
made by the committee in charge to assure alumni 
of a cordial reception and an enjoyable visit. 


ALL the signs, omens, and stars point to Octo- 
ber 28 as the biggest Bucknell week-end in 
many, many years. Alumni Homecoming plus 
the golf tournament, football game, and alumni ban- 
quet will bring more alumni to Lewisburg than have 
ever been here before. That is our prediction. 

Our fellow secretary at Temple University tells 
us that The Reading Railroad will propably declare 
an extra dividend after collecting all the fares of 
Temple rooters and students who will follow the 
team to Lewisburg. Thej^ have already engaged one 
special train with probably more to follow. 

Bucknellians from near and far are writing for 
tickets and our own correspondence has never been 
so heavy, not to mention that of Graduate Manager 
B. W. Griffith. 

This Temple-Bucknell game looks like a natural ! 
Are YOUR tickets ordered yet? 


WE compliment The Associate Chapter of Zeta 
Alpha of Theta Upsilon Omega on their chap- 
ter letter on Homecoming, recently circulated 
by the editor, Mr. B. W. Barrett, '32, of Narberth, 
Pa. The letter was responsible for the tempo of our 
inside back cover ad in this number of The Bucknell 
Alumni Monthly. 


Kiwanis Club officials of Scranton have an- 
nounced a reduction in price of tickets for the 
Bucknell-Westem Maryland game there on 
November 4.

Noted Author and Teacher Issues Challenge at Exercises 
Marking Formal College Opening 

DR. JOHN ERSKINE, Columbia professor, nov- 
elist, and musician, delighted students and fac- 
ulty alike as he addressed them at Bucknell's 
Convocation exercises on September 22. Dr. Erskine 
was presented by President Rainey as the man "who 
best typifies the creative spirit in the world of edu- 
cation". With subtle wit and barbed shafts, aimed 
here at the students and there at the faculty, the 
speaker made a lasting impression with his address 
on "Creative Education". 

Convocation was held 
in the Lewisburg Baptist 
Church with academically 
gowned faculty and stu- 
dents filling the auditorium 
to capacity. 

An idea quite radical 
was broached hj Erskine, 
when he stated that he ad- 
vocated "a college educa- 
tion for onl}- that sect 
known as the creative 
class". He pictured what 
a college education would 
be like under such ideal 
conditions, describing a 
system which would com- 
pletely eliminate the old 
academic scheme of things, 
abolishing survey courses 
and other landmarks of the 
old school. 

"Keats and other greats 
of literature could not 
make much headway by the 
non-creative method", he 
pointed out. He praised 
Keats as being one of the 
greatest creative geniuses 
that ever lived. "He sug- 
g e s t e d real thoughts 
throughout his works", he 
said, pointing out that 
Keats' genius lay in his 
ability to understand the 
reaction of his audience. 

He scorned the idea of 
the psychologists in at- 
tributing every human act to motives. "There isn't 
any such thing as a motive to the average indi- 
vidual", he declared, "and if motives do exist, they 
are known only to Freud and a few of his asso- 

Erskine paid especial tribute to the writers of the 
Old Testament. "They were real creators", he said. 
In speaking of the various characters of Biblical 
days, he laid particular stress on the story of David. 
"We would like to be able to describe a character 
who does wrong. David did wrong many times, 
and yet he is beheved to be a great hero. If I told 
a story about him and signed my name to it, I would 

Dr. Rainey and John Erskine at Convocation 

be severely criticised, and the criticism would prob- 
ably be justified, because I more than likely would 
not employ the proper method". 

His closing words were particularly impressive, 
but at the same time simple. Stressing the idea of 
hope for the future, he said, "I think that we have 
the greatest chance in the world just to live. The 
greatest pictures haven't been painted, and the 
greatest books haven't been written". 

At the conclusion of Dr. 
Erskine's address. Presi- 
dent Rainey awarded the 
various college prizes won 
during the year 1932-1933. 

Challenges Faculty 

Following the exercises 
Dr. Erskine talked to the 
faculty at luncheon in the 
Dining Hall. He challenged 
them to "be themselves" 
for a while, if necessary to 
the neglect of the students, 
as they would eventually 
become more human folks 
and thoroughly likeable as 
individuals instead of mere 
names in the catalogue and 
persons aloof and unknown 
to students. He urged the 
teachers to make their 
work more attractive to 
students and cited an ex- 
ample of his own student 
days wherein he told of 
how he and several of his 
colleagues had a most diffi- 
cult time "making the 

More than one hundred 
members of the faculty and 
friends enjoyed the lunch- 
eon party with Dr. Erskine. 
Later in the day he talked 
to several of the composi- 
tion classes of Dr. Harry 
R. Warfel, '20, his host on 
the campus. 
Convocation marked the official and formal open- 
ing of college although classes had opened the week 
previous. Enrolment at the time of Convocation 
had reached some 940 students, only a slight de- 
crease over the enrolment of the past year.

The University cup for the winner in the district 
of the National Eorensic League contest was award- 
ed on September 8 to Brownsville High School. Dr.

Teacher's College made the presentation address for 
the University. 

for OCTOBER, 1933 


HOMECOMING! The Bucknell Bisons! The 
Temple Owls ! The Alumni Dinner ! The Golf 
Tournament ! Any one of these features is 
enough to make the friends of Bucknell want to be 
back on the campus October 28; all of these com- 
bined make it a celebration not to be missed. 

Homecoming and Football have become synono- 
mous in American colleges. The academic is not 
thrust aside. .. .football merely expresses the "call 
of the outdoors". . . .on an occasional week-end. And 
this year one of the best choices of all time is avail- 
able for the alumni of Bucknell. .. .the Bisons, 
coached by Carl Snavely, and the Owls, coached by 
Glen "Pop" Warner. .. .meeting in the Memorial 

What of the game? It should be a thriller. All 
Temple-Bucknell games have been. In six meetings, 
only a scant touchdown separates the total scores 
of the teams. Both teams will be at their peak for 
the game. Dr. Pangburn sends word that the Temple 
squad voted that the Bucknell game is the one above 
all others that they wish to win. You know how the 
Bisons feel about it ! And "Pop" Warner and Carl 
Snavely are friends ! Oh, well ! They'll just have to 
be "enemies" for a day. ., but they can take it. Carl 
and the team want your support in this game. . . .in 
the stands .... Ray ! Bucknell ! 

The Bisons have looked like a real football team 
in their first three games, winning from Waynes- 
burg 46 to 7 and from Lebanon Valley 34 to 0. 
Duquesne, with one of the East's best teams, won 
6 to 0, though the Bisons appeared to be their equal 
in all departments — a "break" decided the game. 

Bucknell coaches have molded a better balanced 
team this fall than at any time in recent years ex- 
cept possibly in 1929 and 1931. If the team starts 
clicking it may be the equal of either of those great 
elevens. The co-captain plan has been very suc- 
cessful and in my opinion the spirit exceeds any we 
have had on the squad in many campaigns. Owen 
James, stellar left guard, leads the offense, and Nich- 
olas Farina, the hard-fighting center, directs the de- 

The end positions have been played mostly by 
Jack Dorman and Harold Endler, with William 
Wilkinson, Bob Pethick, and Tim Delaney giving 
them valuable aid. Jack Dempsey, George Boiston, 
and Harry Bergkamp are taking care of the tackle 
posts. Supporting James at guard are Ralph Furiell 
and Jack Drayton. George McGaughey relieves 
Farina at center. 

Backfield talent is plentiful, with at least eight 
men doing splendid work. The usual starters 
are John Sitarsky, a sophomore, at quarterback, 
Eddie Myers and Joe Rhubright at the halfbacks, 
and Charles Peters at fullback. Joe Reznichak and 
Phil Miller, have played prominent parts in each 
game, and Edwin Raymaley and Roland Bean have 
figured in all the games. The eight men have han- 
dled the spinners, reverses, passes and the kicking 
game creditably in all their appearances. 

By Arthur L. Brandori/ Director of Publicity 

Warner will bring a team primed to the hilt for 
the Bison encounter. Most of the veterans who beat 
Bucknell a year ago are on the squad, and several 
sophomores have been added, including Don Watts 
and Henry Smith, backs, and James Russell and Joe 
Zanin, linemen. Joseph Pilconis, end, is regarded 
as one of the leading all-America candidates this 
season, after being placed on many teams a year 

"Pop" Warner's homecoming visit will not be his 
first to Bucknell. Many years ago on occasions he 
brought his Carlisle Indians to the campus, and in 
1928 he conducted a coaching school here. The 
Bisons met his Cornell and his University of Pitts- 
burgh teams on their home fields. 

Warner is using a "squirl cage" line shift this 
year that is attracting much attention. He promises 
to have it perfected by the time of the Bucknell 
game. Snavely uses the single-wing back system 
with both the balanced and the unbalanced line. 
Spinners, reverses, cut-backs, passes, and quick kicks 
all evolve systematically from the formations. The 
attack is largely a modified Warner system of other 
da3's. The battle between Warner and Snavely 
promises to be one of the features of the week-end. 

But football is not all. A soccer match Avill be 
played, with the Temple hooters the opponents of 
Joe Reno's fast-developing team. Golf ! The course 
is in better shape than ever before. Bring the clubs. 

And while you are visiting the campus drop in on 
some of the classes and see some of your student 
and teacher friends in a serious part of their college 
life. The "new plan" is working. The "old plan" 
is working. Bucknell is carrjdng on !

Editor's Corner 

WE salute the Bisons! Every 
wearer of the Orange and Blue 
this season deported himself 
with glory to Alma Mater and dis- 
tinction to himself in winning great 
football triumphs over our four oldest 
rivals, Lafayette, Villanova, W. & J., 
and Temple. Bravo! Boys! May your 
successors on the striped turf do as 

WE pay tribute to the men of the 
team and the staff of coaches, 
trainers, and managers in a 
longer article on another page. We 
mention here the names of a few loyal 
rooters and advisers (not of the Sun- 
day coaching department) who have 
been morale builders for the coaches 
and the team throughout the season. 
The list is headed by none other than 
the President of The General Alumni 
Association, that ardent and loyal 
medico from Holmesburg and a mem- 
ber of the Class of 1915, Dr. Edward 
W. Pangburn. "Dr. Ed" takes his va- 
cation in week ends throughout the 
Bucknell football season and is with 
the team at every game. He has be- 
come an integral part of Bucknell 
athletics. B. R. (Young "Cosz") See- 
mann, '21 and John ("Crissy") Criss- 
well, '14, are dyed in the wool fans 
from Pittsburgh as is James Alfred 
("Jim") Pangburn, '20, member of the 
Athletic Council. Edward ("Ed") 
Innes, '08, of Canton also roots hard 
at every game. Tliomas ("Tom") 
Wood, '05, journeys from Muncy to 
see nearly every game and his sage 
counsel and enthusiasm are always 
evident. The President of the Phila- 
delphia Alumni Club, H. Frazier 
("Jim") Sheffer, '18, seldom misses 
and always lends a hand where needed. 
These few fellows and many more 
that space alone prevents our listing 
are one of the reasons for great Buck- 
nell teams, and proof of the ever ex- 
istent Bucknell alumni spirit. 

ROBERT DAWSON, '22, Superin- 
tendent in charge of construction 
of Bucknell's new Literature 
Building is doing a great job. The 
building has stabbed the Bucknell sky- 
line with remarkable speed and as we 
go to press the interior work prog- 
resses toward the opening in late Feb- 
ruary or early March. 

REPORTS from the new unit. The 
Junior College at Wilkes-Barre, 
indicate a fine reception by the cit- 
izenry of the community of this pro- 
ject. More than 160 students are mem- 
bers of the freshman, the only class 
at the Junior College. This number is 
expected to double next year when the 
second class enters. 

BUCKNELL honors an alumnus, 
Paul Althouse, '12, in inviting him 
to appear with the campus sym- 
phony orchestra here and at Wilkes- 
Barre. Both concerts are expected to 
draw capacity crowds because of the 
prominence of this Metropolitan star 
and the fine reputation earned in one 
year by the new Bucknell Symphony

Entered as second-class matter December 23, 1930 at the post 
office at Lewisburg, Pa., under the Act of August 24, 1912. 

THE Junior College had a football 
team, developed in October and 
playing three games. One was won, 
two lost. Perhaps next season they 
may schedule a game with the regular 
freshman team on the campus here. 
Bucknell vs. Bucknell, but with the 
players absolute strangers to one an- 

WE bring this column up to date 
with a quotation of Dr. Charles 
Francis Potter's, '07, gleaned 
from the daily press in which he ad- 
vocates changing the term "lynching" 
to "Rolphing" transferring the honor 
from old Judge Lynch of Virginia 
(who never did deserve the doubtful 
honor) to Governor Rolph of Califor- 
nia who, says Dr. Potter, "praises such 
acts and should receive the honor of 
having his name attached to them". 

WE enjoyed a great alumni dinner 
recently at Easton, Penna. It 
was a Lafayette party and we 
were the guest of the Alumni Secre- 
tary there. Coaches Suavely and Mc- 
Cracken of Bucknell and Lafayette 
respectively, were speakers. How 
about an alumni party for Lewisburg 
next year to honor a visiting coach on 
the night before the game? Bucknell 
has more than one hundred alumni in 
Lewisburg and it has been years since 
we had a Lewisburg alumni party. 

AT this glad season — no let's 
start again — When Yuletide 
comes 'round that's hackney- 
ed too try again With crisp 

winter snow and joy in all hearts — 
whoa! — that's terrible! Anyway —

Nov.-Dec, 1933 

No. 3 


The following editorial from the pen of a former editor 
of this vtagazine, Dr. Harry R. War f el, '20, tells of the 
Bucknell of today. We present this treatise to inform of the changes that have taken place on the campus 
since " 'Way bach. when". 

— The Editor. 

A COLLEGE, like a business concern, is known 
both for its products and its methods. When 
Henry Ford startled the world with his auto- 
mobile, he likewise interested his competitors in his 
method of plant layout and assembly. That method 
was taken over and used elsewhere. But when his 
product was surpassed in quality by that of other 
manufacturers. Ford had to alter his car. The sweep 
of other cars to the front is symbolical of the eternal 
need for change and improvement. 

Bucknell University has not been unaware of the 
need for changes for improving its methods and to 
produce, if I may use the term, a better product. 
From the day of our founding in 1846 until the pres- 
est time, Bucknell has held an honorable place in 
American higher education. For many years, since 
the development of accrediting bureaus, Bucknell 
has been a grade A college on the lists of the Amer- 
shared by some two hundred of our thousand Amer- 
ican Association of Universities. This honor is 
ican institutions of higher learning. Our quality is 
unquestionably high. 

But, unsatisfied with high rating, we are aspiring 
under the leadership of President Homer P. Raine}' 
to be one of a smaller circle of truly great and 
uniquely powerful institutions. Great wealth may 
not be ours; majestic structures may not dot our 
campus. But in the essentials of an educational in- 
stitution we boast superior possessions. Our fac- 
ulty is composed largely of men and women who 
have become widely known for their book and maga- 
zine contributions to learning. Headed by our pres- 
ident, a recognized authority on school finance, our 
professors are known for their contributions to most 
of the fields of knowledge. Our campus is one of the 
few naturally beautiful ones in the country. Our 
physical and laboratory equipment, though adequate, 
is constantly being improved. We have embarked 
upon a building programme which will give us a 
plant both useful and beautiful. 

Our student body, a cosmopolitan cross-section of 
the East, in a recent nation-wide test, stood well up 
among the first fourth of the institutions of Amer- 
ica. In a professional aptitude test, of twenty-seven 
seniors who took it, nine stood above ninety per 
cent. The others stood high. With this record of 
achievement in the past year, we feel certain that 
Bucknell University offers the best opportunities 
for future success to its students. 

Our past history is equally fine. In every pro- 
fession and business, Bucknell graduates hold places 
of trust and supremacy. 

It is to the immediate future that you and I look 
with greatest interest. Is Bucknell, you may ask, 
planning to uphold its high history of achievement? 
The answer is an unqualified Yes. In every depart- 

ment and in every activity our future will continue 
to command the respectful attention and admiration 
of our public and alumni. 

In the belief that collegiate education must pre- 
pare a graduate both to live happily amid the myri- 
ad beauties of the universe and to take his place 
among the leaders of his business or profession, we 
believe that a well-rounded education in the arts 
and sciences is compatible with the best training for 
vocational success. But in giving this full training, 
this wide-visioned understanding of the problems of 
society and men's efforts to make life beautiful, we 
are not reducing the usual amount of pre-profes- 
sional training. Our programme is strengthened and 
improved in every department. Our pre-professional 
work in engineering, law, medicine, and social 
science will be better. 

Our new programme involves two changes in or- 
ganization and procedure. The first change has led 
to the division of the college into two parts : the 
first two years, in which general education is 
stressed ; and the second two years, in which spe- 
cialized, or technical, pre-professional education en- 
gages the undivided attention of the student. 

By this change several beneficial results are ob- 
tainable. First, the student is given a complete or- 
ientation in all the major disciplines in his first two 
years. Here he is acquainted with the history of 
mankind and the meliorative efforts of our great 
workers in religion, law, science, literature, and the 
arts ; with the facts of phj'siology and hygiene ; and 
with the basic courses pre-requisite for his last two 
years. The roster of courses in these two years is 
this : In the first year — World Literature, The His- 
tory of Western Man, A Survey of the Natural 
Sciences, Personal and School Hygiene, Survey of 
the Fine Arts, and Musical Culture. In the second 
year : Modern Social Institutions, Introduction to 
Philosophy, General Psychology, Founders and 
Leaders of the Great Religions, and Principles of 

The second beneficial result is the intensive stud}^ 
of a student's major subject in his last two years. 
If he desires to go to medical school, or law school, 
or to go to another professional school, or if he de- 
sires to specialize in engineering, or in business, or 
in a teaching subject, or in a cultural group, he is 
free to do so. During his last two years, therefore, 
a student is definitely engaged in mastering those 
materials with which he will shape his future career. 
No side-issues take his time from his main interest. 

A third advantage accrues to the student through 
this programme. In his first two years he, like Bal- 
boa surveying the Pacific from a peak in Darien, be- 
comes acquainted with the fundamental problems 
and situations in life. In his last two years he spe- 
cializes in the solution of these problems from the 
vantage ground of his chosen business or profession. 
He works not aimlessly in the task of amassing 
mere information ; he works with the full knowledge 
that this information can appreciably lead his steps 
toward a rich personal life and a wholesome per- 
sonal contribution to the guidance and improvement 
of society. A man thinks as wisely as he has com- 
plete information or facts. Under our plan no grad- 

for NOV.-DEC, 1933 

uate should be found wanting either in cultural or 
pre-professional knowledge. 

Bucknell's second major change lies in its revised 
entrance requirements. Applicants for admission 
are accepted on the basis of individual qualifications 
to do college work. In general any high school 
graduate of good moral and intellectual standing 
may be admitted without regard for the subjects he 
studied in high school. By this change we make 
possible the opportunity for advanced study on the 
part of those who, lacking technical, required 
courses under the old plan, have been shut out. 
But in no sense is this a reduction of standards. We 
offer every young man and woman the opportunity 
to secure a higher education. His success will de- 
pend, as always, upon the capability he demonstrates. 

Dean of Students 

Under the leadership of Dean J- H. Miller stu- 
dent activities have been centralized. A student- 
faculty congress, charged with regulating the com- 
plicated maze of organizations on the campus, is 
attempting to make the students think intelligently 
in terms of making the so-called extra-curricular ac- 
tivities contribute to the educational process. A 
measurable improvement has been marked by this 
reorganization, so that student activities are now 
really meaningful. 

In athletics Bucknell has always stressed the full 
development of intercollegiate sports. At the pres- 
ent time we have a successfully organized "Ath- 
letics for All" programme which really functions. 
Few students during the year do not take part in 
either class or society or varsity games. 

Bucknell, by its new plan, offers a sound curri- 
culum, administered by successful educators. We 
bespeak the interest and cooperation of our alumni 
and friends in its successful development. 


THE Alumni Office announces on the outside back 
cover of this issue of The Bucknell Alumni 
Monthly a special sale of books vi^hich will make 
an attractive and appreciated Christmas gift for any 
Bucknellian. The selection includes the privately 
printed "Thirty Years as President of Bucknell with 
Baccalaureate and Other Addresses" by John How- 
ard Harris ; "Memorials of Bucknell University — 
1919-1931, the Administration of Emory William 
Hunt", published by the University, and "The In- 
augural Address of Homer Price Rainey," published 
by The Bucknell Alumni Monthly. 

These three books chronicle the history of Buck- 
nell Universitjr from 1888, when Dr. Harris was 
elected President to the present time with President 
Rainey as the chief officer of the institution. 

The regular price of the three books and the pic- 
ture would be seven dollars if purchased separately. 
The special Christmas offer for four dollars is ef- 
fective only as long as the limited supply lasts. 

Limited Supply 

Only a limited number of copies of the Dr. Harris 
book were printed in 1926 by his family. Less than 
one hundred copies remain for sale. The books were 
presented to The Alumni Association by Dr. Mary 

B. Harris, '84, with the proceeds from the sale di- 
rected to go to The Alumni Fund. 

As a special offer we include with the purchase of 
each set of books a beautiful photograph, suitable 
for framing, of the artist's model of the future cam- 
pus plans. This photograph of the model is known 
as "Bucknell Today and Tomorrow." 


Three important articles from the pen of Presi- 
dent Homer Price Rainey have recently appeared 
in print. The first article entitled "The Arts in the 
Liberal Arts Colleges" was featured in the Novem- 
ber number of The University of Chicago Magazine. 
A picture of Dr. Rainey with his daughter Lenore 
appeared with the article. 

In the New York Herald Tribune under date of 
Sunday, November 5, President Rainey describes 
the purpose and function of The Junior College. The 
article was featured in the section devoted to edi- 
torials and news of education. Many letters have 
been received by Dr. Rainey in praise of this article 
and inquiring about the Junior College and Buck- 

As a sequel to former articles dealing with the 
Liberal Arts program in theory The Bucknell Jour- 
nal of Education in the October number published 
"The Liberal College Functioning" by President 
Rainey. This monograph details the workings of 
the new program at Bucknell. 



Fourteen alumni golfers competed for honors in 
the 1933 Homecoming Tourney staged on Friday 
and Saturday, October 27 and 28. Only six of this 
field finished and turned in complete cards. Both 
low gross prize and low net were won by Samuel 
Leroy Seemann, '17, of Pittsburgh and The Alcoma 
Country Club. 

The two awards, a bronze plaque for low net and 
loving cup for low gross, were presented at The 
Alumni Banquet Saturday evening. The winner, 
Mr. Seemann, was unable to be present at the ban- 
quet but his prizes were gathered in for him by a 
proxy in the person of Mr. A. R. Mathieson, '20, 
former president of the Western Pennsylvania A- 
lumni Association. 

Mr. Seemann turned in a card of eighty-four for 
low gross score. His nearest rival was N. F. Ziegler, 
'32, of Harrisburg who shot an eighty-six. Third 
place on the scoring chart went to Wm. T. Windsor, 
Esq., '15, Milton, with an eighty-eight. 

The double winner, Mr. Seemann, on his playing 
recorded four pars and two birdies. The birdies were 
hung up on holes four and five. With his Pennsyl- 
vania Golfers Association official handicap of twelve 
Mr. Seemann netted a seventy-two for the second 


As President of The Eastern Association of Col- 
lege Deans and Advisers of Men, Dean R. H. Riven- 
burg, '97, presided at the annual convention of this 
organization at Atlantic City on December 2. He 
also addressed the convention on the subject "A 
Dean's Chance". 



^p""^ yT'~w~ 

I am happy to have this opportunity to convey to all the alumni and 
friends of Bucknell my greetings and best wishes for the Christmas season. 
Since this is the only practical means at my disposal of reaching you^ it is my 
earnest hope that each of you will regard this as a personal greeting. 

Your alma mater through the years has emphasized the supremacy of 
spiritual values over material things. Due to the tremendous strain and trials 
of the last three or four years there seems to be emerging today a more genuine 
appreciation of the functions and social significance of human, moral, and spirit- 
ual values. Christmas is the institution, par excellence, in human society which 
is the supreme glorification of these ideals. This Christmas, therefore, should 
have a deeper meaning and significance for all of us than others of recent years 
have had. My wish is that all of us may, in some genuine measure, catch its 
real meaning and become imbued with its spirit this season. May it bring to 
all of you good health, joy, and an abiding peace.

Bisons Smother W. & J. in Final Game to Brins Season's Total 
to Seven Out of Nine. 

SEVEN out of nine is the season's record for the 
1933 Bucknell football team. The final game 
was won in a blaze of glory for the players and 
a rare treat for the fans on November 25 in Memo- 
rial Stadium at Lewisburg when Washington and 
Jefferson was routed 38-6. This was the nineteenth 
consecutive home game victory for the Bisons. The 
seniors on the team, Eddie Myers, Jeff James, Nick 
Farina, Jack Dempsey, Chuck Peters, Jack Dorman, 
Hub Verhey, Roland Bean, John Kubacki, and Walt 
Gilleland may boast of their freshman and three 
year varsity record of never having been defeated in 
their own stadium. Every one of these seniors took 
a large part in the final decisive game. The 1933 
season, just closed, marked the defeat by Bucknell 
of her four major opponents, Lafayette, Villanova, 
Temple, and Washington and Jefferson in a single 
season. Only seven points separated this great Or- 
ange and Blue team from an undefeated season. Six 
of those points belong to Duquesne and one lone 
one to Western Maryland, left by the Bisons on the 
fields of play at Pittsburgh and Scranton, respec- 
tively. Sports writers in the dail}^ press rank Buck- 
nell in eleventh place in the East as a result of her 
season's record. 

Two Night Games 

The campaign of the Thundering Herd was begun 
with night games and large scores over Waynes- 
burg and Lebanon Valley in the Bucknell Stadium. 
The third game, also played at night in the smoke 
of Pittsburgh's Forbes Field, was a headache and a 
nightmare with a "break" giving the game to Du- 
quesne 6-0. Many Bucknell fans still refuse to be- 
lieve it. 

The Villanova Squeak 

The first Saturday game found the Bucknell 
"power house" functioning against Harry Stuhl- 
dreher's Villanova machine at Philadelphia. This 
encounter was one of the most hair raising games 
we have ever thrilled to. The great Villanova ace, 
Whitey Randour, ran wild in the first half to regis- 
ter the score at 10-0. An inspired Bison team re- 
turned to the game to score twice with lightning 
speed on two great marches. It was then 13-10 with 
Bucknell on the long count. Villanova flashed to 
score and it was 17-13. With one minute to play an 
intercepted Bucknell pass became Villanova's ball 
on their own four yard line. Leonard Katchel, Buck- 
nell tackle, was rushed into the game to block the 
kick. He not only blocked it behind the goal but 
fell on it in the promised land and the game ended 
Bucknell 19, Villanova 17. 

Jersey No. 60 

The next week was Joe Reznichak's turn to grab 
a little glory. Lafayette will long remember Buck- 
nell jersey number 60 and the pair of legs that raced 
that jersey through, around, over, and under the 
Easton team in their own backyard to the tune of 
21-0. It was a complete rout of the oldest Bucknell 
rival, Lafayette. 

Homecoming Victory 

Then came the great Homecoming game with 
"Pop" Warner of Carlisle Indian, Cornell, Pitt, and 
Stanford fame bringing his Temple University Owls 
to Lewisburg to face the Bisons. Their faces were 
turned largely after Bucknell ball carriers Myers, 
Peters, and Reznichak as they raced across the Tem- 
ple goal line three times to wind up a great game 
20-7 to the delight of a great alumni homecoming 
crowd of some twelve thousand. 

Scranton Headache 

The let down came the next week at Scranton 
when the Bisons was trailing at the final whistle 
14-13 to an inspired Western Maryland team. 

Furman Frozen 

The Purple Hurricane from Greenville, South 
Carohna, known as Furman University, swept north 
but was chilled and frozen by the icy blasts and 
snow in Memorial Stadium on November 11. The 
Bisons turned loose their power through real team 
play with every man jack of the eleven doing his 
bit to earn a 12-0 victory over a game and fighting 
team of frozen Southern boys who played valiantly 
until the end. 

Grand Climax 

The season's wind up came in startling fashion 
as Bucknell completely dominated the W. & J. game 
with a great crew of seniors playing their lasl for 
the Orange and Blue. Eddie Myers raced the ends 
tor two touchdowns, Hub Verhey intercepted a pass 
and ran ninety-four yards for a score, and later was 
the third man on a triple pass to score again Joe 
Rhubright, a junior, caught a long heave from Joe 
Reznichak for a thrilling touchdown and still not 
satisfied went through the line for another The 
superb line play of Dempsey, Dorman, James and 
-banna looked like all America performances with 
Chuck Peters, the great blocking back taking out 
men like puppets to pave the way for long gains 
and touchdowns by his team mates in the backfield. 
It was a thrilling and spectacular triumph to close 
the football season for a great Orange and Blue 


Much has been written in sports articles about the 
high calibre of Bucknell's coaching staff. They de- 
serve all that has come their way and more. Carl 
Suavely was paid high tribute by President Rainey 
at the Homecoming Alumni Banquet as a gentle- 
man and superior type of coach and leader of men. 
As excellent testimony to the work of the coach 
along lines other than pure football, is the great 
rsepect in which Bisons teams have been held by 
alumni, faculty and friends who know the individual 
boys. They are young gentlemen whose conduct off 
respect in which Bisons teams have been held bv 


college men representative of the best traditions 
of Bucknell. 

Malcolm Musser, '19, Freshman Coach in 1932 
and for several seasons prior to this time, has earn- 
ed the respect and the esteem of the boys who now 
make up the varsity teams. They learned about 
Bucknell and football first from "Mai" as fresh- 
men, before their entrance into varsity competition 
under Snavely. 

Quiet, reserved, shrewd, Max Reed, '24, assistant 
varsity coach, speaks only when necessary. His 
words are never wasted so that the men know when 
he does talk to them he has something worth listen- 
ing to. In a quiet manner he commands the admira- 
tion of the men. They know from his record and his 
coaching that he is a man among men. 

Mose Ouinn, he of the Southern drawl and polish- 
ed manner, is officially new to the Bison Frosh this 
year but the men for several years have known him 
as an ardent football fan and former player. His 
work vt-ith the freshmen this season has been out- 
standing. The boys like "Mose" and work willing 
for him. He not only coaches them well but inspires 
them to play their best in every game. 


George "Peachy" Kling is the oldest Bucknell 
trainer in point of service but George "Doc" Hoskins 
antedates him in numerical years and grey hair. The 
two are indispensable men to the physical health and 
moral stamina of the team. Both will long be re- 
membered by every boy that has worn the Orange 
and Blue under them. A new man in the person of 
Joe Reno, soccer and boxing coach, also works with 
the team in the dressing rooms and is an expert on 
bruises, sore muscles, and the necessary rubbing 
operations before and after every game. Joe, like 
the older men, has become a valuable fixture in 
Bucknell football. 


Bucknell will play 18 basketball games this sea- 
son, seven of them with Eastern Intercollegiate 
Conference teams. In addition to the Conference 
games the prominent colleges to be met are the 
Army, Penn State, Dickinson, Colgate, W. & J., and 
Villanova. Nine of the contests will be played in 
Lewisburg. Georgetown opens the season in Lewis- 
burg December 8.

Loyalty that knows no bounds has indelibly tied 
Dr. Benjamin W. Griffith, '99, to Bucknell athletics 
as player, professor and Graduate Manager. His 
patient dealings with the men earn him complete 
respect from every one of them. His position often 
places him in awkward situations but through native 
abihty and the help of a strong athletic council mem- 
bership he remains today as perhaps the most im- 
portant cog in all Bucknell athletics. 

The Bucknell athletic set up is second to none in 
ability, attention to detail, and everlasting work 
against the greatest of odds, financial and athletic. 

We know' that the Orange and Blue will ever 
wave with honor and respect from every quarter 
with able men giving their best to uphold Bucknell 
and sports traditions. 


Alumni of Bucknell dominated the recent annual 
Conference on Education held on the campus. More 
than thirty alumni names appeared on the printed 
program and it is estimated that more than one hun- 
dred Bucknellians engaged in the educational field 
were present among the five hundred delegates. 



Arrangements are being made for a Bucknell 
Dinner on the evening of December 28th. This is 
to be held at the Walton Hotel, Philadelphia. This 
has been planned as a special courtesy to all Buck- 
nellians attending the Pennsylvania State Education 
Association Convention. Local Bucknellians will 
have this opportunity of meeting old friends and 
classmates. The dinner will be held in the Roof 
Garden thus giving the party the privilege of view- 
ing the floor show and of enjoying the orchestra 
and dance facilities. Following the dinner the party 
will adjourn to a private room in the hotel to re- 
ceive some special remarks from President Rainey 
and enjoy a period of visiting with old friends. 
Through special arrangements a price of $1.50 per 
reservation has been obtained. This covers dinner, 
entertainment, etc. In order that all details may be 
worked out carefully in advance reservations should 
be made as soon as possible. Notice should be sent 
to Louis W. Sipley, '18, care of Walton Hotel, Phil- 
adelphia. Checks sent in advance may be made pay- 
able to Walton Hotel. 


The local Susquehanna Branch of the American 
Association of University Women is handling the 
sale of "The Conquest of a Continent" maps pic- 
tured in the October issue of this magazine. They 
are being sold as Christmas gifts at three prices, 
$1.00, $2.25, and $3.75, unmounted, mounted, and 
framed respectively. The local committee in charge 
of the Christmas sale includes Miss Majel K. Brooks, 
Mrs. Elizabeth Wright, Miss Betty 'Bentley, and 
Miss Inez Robinson.

More Than Four FHundred Celebrate Victory and Hear 
Talk by President. 

CELEBRATING the Bucknell football victory 
over Temple and climaxing the Homecoming" 
program for 1933 more than four hundred 
alumni and friends of the University gathered in 
the Dining Hall at Women's College on the night 
of October 28 for the largest Bucknell party ever 
held on the campus. 

President Rainey delivered the address of the 
evening, relating the plans for the future as drafted 
by The Board of Trustees and Mr. Jens F. Larsen, 
University Architect. 

Romain C. Hassrick, Esq., '06, of Philadelphia 
acted as Toastmaster and introduced the speakers 
and guests of honor, including Honorable Charles 
P. Vaughan, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, 
Mr. Larsen, Dr. E. W. Pangburn, '15, President of 
The General Alumni Association, Carl G. Snavely, 
Head Coach of football, and A. G. Stoughton, '24, 
Alumni Secretary. Mr. Stoughton presented the 
golf awards, a bronze plaque and loving cup to Mr. 
A. R. Mathieson, '20, representing the winner of 
both prizes, I\Ir. Samuel Leroy Seemann, '17, of 

President's Address 

President Rainey in responding to his introduc- 
tion by the Toastmaster stated that with such an 
occasion and fine crowd he could not abide by the 
rules to make only a short after dinner talk. His 
address outlined the program in both the academic 
and building fields that had been laid down by the 
Board of Trustees. Dr. Rainey expressed the belief 
that much of the great building program planned 
would be realized in time for the centenary cele- 
bration in 1946. He estimated roughly that the 
program would necessitate the expenditure of some 
five millions of dollars, two million for buildings 
and three million for endowment. 

"Bucknell is known as a football college" stated 
the president during the course of his address. The 
audience was tense, awaiting a public statement of 
policy on athletics. The president then lauded the 
accomplishments of The Athletic Council and the 
various teams in all fields of sport. Rather than 
resort to mediocre ranking in the sports world, the 
other departments of the College were challenged to 
match the fine records in sports. Dr. Rainey ex- 
pressed the conviction that with the strengthening 
of other departments to bring them on a par with 
athletics Bucknell University as an educational in- 
stitution would rank second to none. His tribute to 
Coach Snavely as a leader and fine coach in build- 
ing great teams was responsed to by great applause. 

In his closing remarks President Rainey urged 
alumni and friends of Bucknell to take an active 
part in promoting the welfare of the Universit}^ 
through an understanding of her problems and the 
presentation of her pleas to people of financial 

The banquet was such a pronounced success that 
many requests were received for its repetition next 

year and inclusion on the calendar as an annual part 
of Homecoming. 

The dinner was complete and ample in the way of 
fine food, w-ell prepared, under the direction of Mrs. 
Clara G. Sale, Dietitian. Special music was furnish- 
ed on the dinner program through the Department 
of Music. Mr. Harold E. Cook, teacher of piano, 
played a piano solo and The Bucknell String Quar- 
tette, under the leadership of Mr. Charles Stickney 
played The Finale from Dvorak's American Quar- 
tette. "" 

Small Crowd at Dance 

The Alumni Dance, transferred from the scene 
of former dances. The Gymnasium, attracted only a 
small number of dancers following the banquet. 
Those who did attend enjoyed the music of Eddie 
Hoffman's ('30) Orchestra and the ample dancing 
space provided by the new Dining Hall. 

An alumni quartette of more than the required 
number harmonized during intermission to the de- 
light of many hearers. The dance was over at mid- 
night and the "Greatest Homecoming Ever" became 


Educational administrators are reminded that an 
important function of Bucknell University is the 
training of teachers. The University has a tradition 
in this field of which it is justly proud. The present 
administration is encouraging this work in every 
possible way. Alumni probably need not be re- 
minded that Bucknell is one of six institutions in 
Pennsylvania whose graduate credits in education 
are accepted by the State Department of Public In- 
struction toward the administrator's certificate. 

Furthermore, they need not be reminded that 
Bucknell's graduates just as the graduates of other 
teacher training institutions, are many of them "all 
dressed up with nowhere to go." Bucknell will ap- 
preciate it if when you are looking for teachers for 
next year, you ask the Appointment Bureau to sub- 
mit the credentials of worthy candidates. This will 
be just one additional way you can help us to weath- 
er the depression. 


Bucknell's Alpha Xj Chapter of Kappa Phi Kappa, 
professional education fraternity held a banquet at 
Round Top Inn near Muncy following the Saturday 
general session of the education conference. Five 
undergraduate students and two graduate students 
were initiated. In addition, President Francis B. 
Haas of Bloomsburg State Teachers College and 
Dr. George B. Lawson, head of the Philosophy and 
Psychology Division of Bucknell were made' hon- 
orary members. This fraternity, which was organ- 
ized on May 9, 1930, now has somewhat over one 
hundred members, many of whom are prominent 





Teachers and administrators from Pennsylvania 
and other states were in attendance at Bucknell's 
eighth annual Conference on Education which was 
held at Lewisburg on Friday and Saturday, No- 
vember 17 and 18. 

A number of new features attracted a larger body 
of educators than has ever attended the conference. 
The banquet on Friday evening under the direction 
of Mrs. Clara G. Sale, attracted 264 persons who 
were delighted with the address of Wilson Mac- 
Donald, Canadian Poet. Mr. MacDonald was so good 
that a number of people have asked how they might 
get in touch with him for future engagements. 

Dean John W. Withers of the New York Uni- 
versity School of Education and Dr. George D. 
Strayer, Professor of Education at Teachers College, 
Columbia University, were the high lights of the 
Friday afternoon and evening conferences. Both 
spoke at the general sessions at two and eight P.M. 
and at smaller sections at four o'clock, Dr. Strayer 
speaking to school directors, parent teacher associa- 
tions and secondary principals and Dr. Withers to 
the teacher training groups. 

Speakers at the last general session, Saturday at 
eleven A.M., were President Francis B. Haas of 
Bloomsburg State Teachers College and Rabbi 
Louis M. Levitsky of Temple Israel, Wilkes-Barre. 
Dr. Haas spoke on "A New Deal for Education" and 
Rabbi Levitsky on the subject "A New World Sym- 

Speakers at the section meetings included a wide 
list of g.ersons prominent in the field of education. 
A listing of them would almost require the reprint- 
ing of the entire program. 

The general theme of the conference was "Build- 
ing Morale for the Public Schools." In an endeavor 
to make the influence of the conference as wide as 
possible, two new sections were added and will be 
continued. They were the section for school directors 
and the one for parent teacher associations. Also 
the elementary section was moved from Friday to 
Saturday and had a large attendance. 

A large number of Bucknell alumni and faculty 
members participated in the program. President 
Rainey extended his greetings and good wishes to 
the banquet group. President Emeritus Hunt pre- 
sided at the Friday evening session and the school 
of music furnished entertainment at the Friday gen- 
eral sessions. Hazel Gravelle and Paul Confer sang 
at the two o'clock meeting and the Friday evening 
music was furnished by Inez Robinson, contralto 
and Charles Stickney with The Bucknell String 


Bucknell has the best boxing schedule this year 
ever arranged for the mittsters. They meet five 
foes in the Eastern Intercollegiate Conference, of 
which the Bisons are members, and three in the 
Eastern Association. In addition to the regular 
matches, the Bucknell boxers will also take part in 
the annual boxing tournament held by the Confer- 

The schedule : 

January 13 — West Virginia at Morgantown 
January 20 — W. and J. at Washington 
January 27 — Carnegie Tech at Lewisburg 
February 2 — Temple at Lewisburg 
February 7 — Penn State at State College 
P'ebruary 17 — Army at West Point 
February 2-4 — Western Maryland at Lewisburg 
March 3 — Duquesne at Pittsburgh 
March 16 and 17 — Conference Tournament at 
Morgantown, W. Va. 


"The Royal Family" presented by Cap and Dag- 
ger to an enthusiastic audience on November 2, 
scored the first dramatic hit of the year for this or- 
ganization. Many comments were heard upon the 
thoroughly professional manner in which the play 
was given. Lighting, costuming, stage, scenery, 
characters and acting were all praised by the audi- 
ence. Miss Hannah Raphael, freshman co-ed from 
Pittsburgh, took the feminine lead and in her initial 
performance received high praise from the critics. 


The last issue of the COLLEGE NEWS BU- 
REAU BULLETIN prints an article on College 
Publicity by Arthur L. Brandon, Director of Pub- 
licity at Bucknell. The other contributors are L. C. 
Boochever of Cornell, Earl Silvers of Rutgers, W. 
A. Dill of the University of Kansas, and E. C. Wil- 
son of the University of Iowa. 

Mr. Brandon's article deals with three types of 
newspaper publicity. First, the special feature ar- 
ticles, such as those recently written by Dr. Rainey 
for the New York Times and the New York Herald 
Tribune. Second, the localized publicity, such as 
that prepared for the football team for its games 
in a specific territory like Pittsburgh, or for a glee 
club trip, and third, the home town story, which 
gives an account of the individual accomplishments 
of the student. 

Mr. Brandon points out that in these days of low 
revenue for newspapers it is "harder to get into 
print", and the type article cited above is more like- 
ly to be used than the older style generalized story. 


Before the kickoff in the Bucknell-Temple Home- 
coming game "Pop" Warner, Temple coach, was 
presented with a memento from Bucknell alumni 
and The Athletic Council welcoming him back to 
Lewisburg. The presentation took place on the field. 
The gift, a silver cigarette lighter embossed with a 
Bucknell seal, was presented to Coach Warner by 
Al. G. Stoughton, '24, Alumni Secretary at Bucknell. 


"Old Timer" in The Harrisburg Telegraph re- 
cently handed a nice bouquet to Arthur L. Brandon, 
Bucknell Director of Publicity. His comment was 
as follows :- "Bucknell can boast of a live wire as 
Director of Publicity. His name is A. L. Brandon, 
and judging by the good reading he sends out he 
evidently works overtime." 

for NOV.-DEC, 1933 



By Prof. Lewis Edwin Theiss, '02 

DYING as he had expressed 
the wish that he might die — 
"in harness" — the Rev. Dr. 
Raymond M. West, alumnus, trus- 
tee, and student pastor of Buck- 
nell University, minister of the 
Lewisburg Baptist Church, and 
member of Phi Gamma Delta, ex- 
pired suddenly in the study of his 
church immediately after he had 
concluded his morning sermon on 
Sunday, October 15. In the audi- 
ence assembled in the church au- 
ditorium were his wife, Mrs. Har- 
riet Eldredge West, his daughter, 
Mrs. Ethel Knapp, of Lewisburg, 
and his son, Russell E. West, of 
Little Falls, N. J. For the first 
time in months the entire family 
was come together. They had 
met to celebrate Dr. West's sev- 
enty-first birthday ; for had he 
lived twelve hours longer, he 
Vi^ould have completed the Biblical 
three score years and ten. 

In the spring of the year. Dr. 
West, who had always been a man 
of unusual physical force and 
vigor, suffered a sudden heart at- 
tack. For four months he was 
unable to perform his accustomed 
pastoral duties. With the opening 
of college he resumed work, tak- 
ing up his tasks gently, and 
"easing" into his labors. He 
seemed to gain strength daily. On 
the morning of his death he was 
apparently in excellent condition. 
He preached a sermon that was 
by far the most vigorous public 
utterance he had made since his 
return to the pulpit. To his audi- 
ence it seemed as though all his 
old-time force had returned. Im- 
mediately after his talk, as was 
his custom, he made his way to 
the church entrance to shake 
hands with departing church 
members. There he suddenly 
crumpled. Ushers carried him in- 
to his study, where he shortly ex- 
pired without regaining con- 
sciousness. Memorial services 
were held in the church on Tues- 
day afternoon. 

Tributes to the departed were 
spoken by President Homer P. 
Rainey, of Bucknell ; the Rev. Dr. 
Henry C. Robbins, of the Colgate- 
Rochester Theological Seminary; 
and the Rev. Dr. Charles A. Soars, 
of Philadelphia, former secretary 

of the Pennsylvania Baptist Edu- 
cation Board. Prayer was offered 
by President Emeritus Emory 
W. Hunt, of Bucknell. The dea- 
cons of the Church acted as pall- 

Interment was made in the Ov- 
erlook Cemetery, in Bridgeton, 
N. J., near the birthplace of the 
deceased. Preceding burial, me- 
morial services were held in the 
First Baptist Church of Bridge- 
ton, under the leadership of Pres- 
ident Milton G. Evans, of Crozer 
Theological Seminary, who is also 
a Bucknell alumnus and trustee. 

Dr. R. M. West, '89 

Thus, in a very literal sense. 
Dr. West was gathered to his 
fathers ; for he was born on a farm 
near the country village of Shiloh, 
hardly three miles from his final 
resting place. Probably it was as 
a farm lad that he gained his un- 
usual physical vigor and his in- 
domitable spirit. From the be- 
ginning he showed the utmost 
determination to achieve and to 
attain the best in life. He got 
what education he could in the 
local schools. Then he set out, 
altogether on his own responsi- 
bility and wholly at his own ex- 
pense, to wrest an education from 
the world. 

He put himself through the 
South Jersey Institute, a Baptist 
preparatory school at Bridgeton, 
Then he entered Bucknell Uni- 

versity. It had taken time. He 
was already 23 years of age. But 
he had had an experience of life 
that had matured him far beyond 
most of his college associates. 
From the very start he was out- 

At one time or another he held 
most of the "prize" campus ofHces. 
He was the manager of the var- 
sity football team. He was editor- 
in-chief of the college publication. 
The Mirror. He was editor of the 
initial issue of the Bucknell year- 
book, LAgenda. He was treas- 
urer of the Senior Class. At that 
time the student body was divided 
almost evenly between two great 
literary societies, that flourished 
mightily, and he was president of 
one of them, Theta Alpha. He 
was a giant in debate. With it 
all, he was a prize student, for at 
graduation he was valedictorian 
of his class and was awarded an 
oration of the first class, which 
meant that for his entire four 
years in college his grades had 
averaged ninety or better. 

He entered the Crozer Theo- 
logical Seminary, at Chester, Pa., 
from which he was graduated in 
1892. Meantime, he had contin- 
ued to do some work at Bucknell, 
and that institution now gave him 
his A.M. degree, in addition to 
the A.B. he had won at gradua- 
tion. To these degrees Denison 
University added that of D.D. in 

Graduating from Crozer at the 
age of 30, he was promptly called 
to be the pastor of the Lehigh 
Avenue Baptist Church in Phila- 
delphia. Here he remained for 
eleven years. From a member- 
ship of 200, the church organiza- 
tion grew to be a body of 550 per- 
sons. A fine new church edifice 
was erected, which is still con- 
sidered one of the best arranged 
churches for educational purposes 
in Philadelphia. 

In 1903 Dr. West accepted the 
call of the great First Baptist 
Church of St. Paul, Minn. 

He was later pastor of the Park 
Avenue Baptist Church, of Roch- 
ester, N. Y. 

In 1915 Dr. West resigned the 
Rochester pastorate, to become 
executive secretary of the New 
Jersey Baptist Convention. 

He came to Lewisburg, in 1921, 
to become the college pastor and 
minister of the Lewisburg Bap- 
tist Church which he served until 
his death.

Belated word has been received of 
the death in March, 1932, of the Hon- 
orable Simon Ward Gilpin, former 
probate judge of St. Louis County, 
Minnesota, at the home of a son in 
Hollywood, Calif. The Duluth Herald 
of March 11, 1932 prints the following 
obituary of Judge Gilpin: 

Judge Gilpin, a native of Pennsyl- 
vania, had lived in St. Louis County 
since 1901, when he became superin- 
tendent of schools at Virginia. In 
1904 he was elected superintendent of 
St. Louis County schools, which posi- 
tion he held until 1911, when he was 
elected judge of probate. 

He resigned as judge April 15, 1929, 
to assume the position of trust officer 
with the City National Bank. 

He was born Nov. 20, 1872, at New- 
foundland, Pa., the son of Simon Allen 
and Sarah Ann Croft Gilpin. He was 
graduated from Mansfield State Nor- 
mal School, Mansfield, Pa., in 1892, 
and from Bucknell University, Penn- 
sylvania, in 1898. He was married 
Dec. 23, 1901, to Miss Elizabeth M. 
Crawshaw at her home in Minneapolis. 
He served as principal of schools at 
Newfoundland from 1892 to 1894. He 
moved to Minnesota about 1900 and 
after being superintendent of schools 
at Proctor for a short time he ac- 
cepted a similiar post at Virginia. 

Established as Authority 

While he was superintendent of 
county schools he studied law. Judge 
Gilpin was a recognized authority in 
the handling of wills and estates and 
because of this aptitude he became as- 
sociated with the Duluth Bank to ad- 
minister trust estates. 

Judge Gilpin was a member of the 
Eleventh Judicial District Bar Asso- 
ciation, a Blue Lodge Mason, a mem- 
ber of the Scottish Rite and of Aad 
Temple Shrine. He took an active part 
in Shrine activities for crippled chil- 
dren and was at one time an officer of 
the Shrine Hospital. He also was a 
member of the Northland Country 
Club, the Duluth Curling Club, the 
Chamber of Commerce, the Elks and 
the Moose. 

The family home is at 2110 Lon- 
don Road. Surviving are the widow, 
two sons, Joseph of Hollywood, and 
Paul, a post-graduate student at the 
University of Minnesota; a daughter, 
Miss Helen Gilpin, Duluth. who was 
with her parents at the time of Judge 
Gilpin's death, and a brother, Leroy 
L. Gilpin, Duluth.

ZERO! Brrr— Brrr and how the 
North wind doth blow! West 
College offices are deserted. A 
few brave and hardy souls move about 
all bundled up in overcoats and ga- 
loshes as they gather papers and files 
to adjourn to some warmer spot. It is 
ten o'clock on the morning of January 
30, 1934 and the University offices are 
almost paralyzed by the cold. The first 
time in the memory of this reporter — 
and that is fourteen years. 

OTHER campus buildings are 
warmer as final examinations 
for first semester go right along 
with the students more serious and 
concerned than at any other time of 
the year — except the finals for the 
succeeding semester. Once each se- 
mester — or it sounds better to say 
twice a year — college students really 
do some work! 

THE athletic situation referred to in 
our dignified editorial column is 
causing work no end for the Ath- 
letic office and headaches for the Grad- 
uate Manager, Dr. B. W. Griffith, '99. 
No special trucks are needed to bring- 
in t'ne mail each day containing appli- 
cations from coaches for Snavely's 
position but we understand there are 
about half a hundred after the job. 
Many are Bucknell men and many are 
headliners in sport. It looks as though 
Carl Snavely left a mighty good job. 

HE goes from here to a grand old 
school — North Carolina Univer- 
sity at Chapel Hill. We have 
some good friends down there and 
have visited the campus, one of the 
most charming and historic in the 
South. Good luck! Carl!

Entered as second-class matter December 23, 1930 at the post 
office at Lewisburg, Pa., under the Act of August 24, 1912. 

HOW do we measure our love for 
Alma Mater? By our deeds? 
Our thoughts? Our words? You 
would not read this magazine if there 
were not love for Bucknell in your 
hearts. It is that love which carries 
us on and on through the years in our 
sometimes feeble but never despairing- 
task of bringing Bucknell to you who 
cannot return frequently to the cam- 

THE Alumni Fund comes again this 
year asking for your support and 
confidence expressed in terms of 
money. Whatever you send brings 
you that much closer to Bucknell. It 
is you coming back home and working 
for the common good. Importunity 
should not be necessary when sons and 
daughters are asked to "Come Home". 
It is truly Opportunity! We have 
faith that you will express your faith 

THE campus is going "Big time" 
socially this month with none other 
than Ozzie Nelson and his orches- 
tra booked for the Junior Prom on 
February 16. Alumni from many miles 
around are expected to attend and 
yours truly is saving pennies now to 
"go collegiate" once again. See you 
at the Prom! 


Hi INCLE JULIUS", as he is known 
to Columbia radio artists, had a 
share in arranging for this fine 
radio band to appear here. Seebach, 
'20, if you must know the full name, 
has arranged programs of entertain- 
ment for Bucknellians in New York 
that will long be remembered. Mills, 
Boswells, Biljo. Carlisle, Street Singer, 
and other starred names were on the 
bill. A great show! 

THIS corner has never been sullied 
with politics but tonight we glorify 
it by reference to the greatest 
American alive today, Franklin Delano 

Roosevelt. We have adjoui-ned from 
our frigid office to the old fireplace at 
home to finish this corner and we have 
just listened to our President on the 
radio acknowledging his birthday 
greetings and the noble movement in 
behalf of the nation's crippled chil- 
dren. A man as human as President 
Roosevelt is too far above party and 
pettiness ever to be called a politician. 
He is the personification of the great- 
ness of America. He is America. 

I MAGINE the above in the magazine 
I of a rock ribbed Pennsylvania Bap- 
tist college steeped in Republican- 
ism! — but we do have a Texas Demo- 
crat for President! — and we are lib- 
eral in this column to the core! It is 
a personal corner you know.

room chills to remind us of our zero 
office this morning so good- 



Jan.-Feb., 1934 



THE question of Bucknell's policy in athletics for 
the future and the subsequent selection of 
coaches for football is paramount in the alumni 
mind today. Since the resignation of Carl Snavely 
and Max Reed as football coaches speculation in the 
press has been rife over possible developments and 
"The Bucknellian", student newspaper, has offered 
suggestions of every sort. 

The first step in the development of an athletic 
policy must be taken by The Athletic Council and 
then approved by the President. The Athletic Coun- 
cil is an approved university unit functioning under 
the Board of Trustees and President and governed 
by a constitution and by-laws as approved by the 
Board. Members on this council are drawn mainly 
from alumni centers. At present Pittsburgh, New 
York, Philadelphia, Harrisburg, Nanticoke, and 
Charlottesville, Virginia are represented on the 
council. The executive committee of the council is 
made up of faculty members who confer regularly 
with the Graduate'Manager, Dr. B. W. Grififith, '99. 

The entire council is expected to meet within sev- 
eral weeks to adopt a policy in conformity with the 
eligibility rules laid down by The Middle States 
Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. The 
list of applicants for the coaching positions will be 
then sifted to find the men who will best fit into the 
Bucknell picture. 

What changes will be made in present policies is 
undetermined except that the council is expected 
to confirm their action of two years ago when schol- 
arships for new athletes were first withdrawn. Dr. 
Griffith recently stated: "We joined with the other 
members of the Middle States group two years ago 
in discontinuing new scholarships for athletic pur- 

Bucknell's policy in the past has been an honest 
and frank one of granting aid to athletes. Such was 
duly reported to the Carnegie investigators. As the 
picture changes we will in the words of President 
Rainey "continue to be honest and abide by the rules 
which likewise govern our opponents". Our teams 
will meet others on the same plane as in the past 
and we will go along with our fellow colleges under 
whatever conditions are mutually agreed upon. 

We have never spent much money on football and 
to quote one well known alumnus "wc get more 
football per dollar than any college in the country". 
Now we will spend even less as athletic scholar- 
ships become a thing of a past era. Those who worry 
over a possible decline in inter-collegiate competi- 
tion (loss of games and inferior opponents) may be 
comforted by the fact that we are not going "pure" 
overnight. It is a four year process already two 
years in operation and our teams have suffered little 
if any in strength or public appeal. Our neighbors 
in the east are likewise experiencing the same 
changes and while the entire level may change the 
relative strength of teams will remain the same. 

The Bucknell "New Deal" has looked ahead to 
such changes and the new gymnasium is planned 
for all sports with intra-mural athletic games figur- 
ing largely in future plans. During the past year 

intra-mural sports have grown to almost unbelieva- 
ble proportions with more than 95% of the entire 
male student body taking part in these activities. 

President Rainey when asked about the coaching 
situation replied that "alumni need have no fear that 
a poor coach will be hired. We will hire the best 
coach possible consistent with our ideals and limita- 

The articulate minority who would continue to 
grant athletic scholarships have not seen the full 
picture. The accredited standing of the college in 
the intercollegiate world would be immediately with- 
drawn by the Middle States Association and our 
graduates (not only athletes) would be barred from 
admission to any graduate school. The penalty is 
unthinkable and we have no choice but to accept the 
limitations placed upon the entire group. 

Alumni cooperation is needed if we are to keep 
our place in the sun earned through the years by 
slow building of good athletic teams. As we make 
our appeal to high and prep school lads we are on 
an equal footing with other colleges and universities. 
Bucknell is just as fine an institution as any of the 
rest. We should be able to attract our full share of 
students and athletes and with alumni support and 
influence in the home towns we will continue to 
place fine teams on the many fields of play. 


THE steady growth of The Bucknell Alumni Fund 
during its short period of existence coupled with 
its timely value encourages the committee to 
launch the annual appeal for the fourth consecutive 

It is expected that more than one thousand alumri 
will become contributors between now and June to 
this greatest of alumni projects. The number of 
donors last year exceeded seven hundred. The goal 
this year is one thousand. This figure, which at first 
seems large, is actually only seventeen per cent of 
the total alumni body 

In the three years of the existence of the Alumni 
Fund more than thirteen thousand dollars has been 
contributed. Of this amount more than four thou- 
sand five hundred dollars has been set aside in trust 
funds. These funds have been the means of financial 
assistance extended to thirty-five seniors of the 
classes of 1932 and 1933 who are now graduates and 
all loyal supporters of the Alumni Fund plan. 

At the present time some twenty members of the 
class of 1934 have applied for loans from this fund 
and more are expected to need assistance before 

In addition to making loyal new alumni, the fund 
also cares for part of the Alumni Association operat- 
ing expenses. Eventually with increased alumni sup- 
port this one channel of revenue will not only care 
for the total operating expenses of the entire Alum- 
ni Association and the publication of the Bucknell 
Alumni Monthly but will be able from time to time 
to designate funds for special alumni and college 



AT a recent meeting of the Parent-Teacher As- 
sociation, which completely filled the large 
new auditorium of the Hamilton Park Field 
House, Dr. A. R. E. Wyant, '92, of Beverly Hills, 
Chicago, gave this word-picture in speaking of "An 
Oldtimer's Schoolday Memories" : 

"How dear to my heart are the scenes of my 
When fond recollections presents them to viev>'; 
The orchard, the meadow, the deep-tangled wild- 
And every loved spot which my infancy knew." 

Memory ! As I pronounce that word a most cher- 
ished scene appears before me. In the grove of oaks 
upon my native Pennsylvania hillside stands an old 
dingy-red schoolhouse. The shaved-shingles on the 
roof have been curled by the scorching rays of many 
a summer's sun ; the dilapidated shutters creak as 
they swing on their rusty hinges ; strips of the 
weatherboards have been rudely torn away; and 
many a chink has been picked in the mud of the old 
flag-stone wall. 

Not far ofif the spring pours out its refreshing- 
waters. A silver streamlet creeps over the mossy 
brim and steals its unobtrusive way among the 
grasses. I see the playground where scores of laugh- 
ing, happy boys and girls are sporting away the 
noon hour. The wood echoes with their song and 
laughter. I see again the long, old-fashioned wooden 
desks and benches carved and disfigured by many a 
mischievous knife. 

Those days were ours. The wild flowers grew 
for us ; the wild birds sang for us ; the wild woods 
gave shade for us ; the fields invited us to sport on 
their green carpets. Oh! Who would part with the 
memories of happy childhood? Those days when no 
shadows crossed our path ; when no cloud of sorrow 
ever crossed the sk}^ to hide the light ; when no care 
drew its sharp fingers across our brow. 

Alas ! Many of my childhood companions who 
drank from that same battered cup at the spring, 
whose merry peals of laughter resounded as we 
sported on the playground, who sat on those quaint 
benches and perused their lessons, have long since 
quit earth's scenes and have gone to a fairer region 
where they are robed in a fairer youth. Oh ! Blessed 
faculty of memory ! What cherished scenes it brings 
back to illumine and inspire our souls ! That old 
farewell school-closing song still echoes in my mem- 

"One more song and then we sever; 
One more clasp of hands and then 
We shall part perhaps forever, 
Though we'll hope to meet again." 


Owen James, Bucknell lineman for the past four 
seasons, was selected by Andy Kerr, coach of the 
All East Football team to make the trip to San Fran- 
cisco as a member of the squad. James played in 
the charity game against the All W'est team on New 
Year's Day and earned himself and Bucknell somf' 
valuable publicity on the west coast. Walter Diehl, 
'26, and Clark Hinkle, '32, were members of this the 
All East teams during their senior years. 


Carl Snavely, head football coach at Bucknell for 
the past seven years, and ]\Iax Reed, '24, assistant 
coach, recently resigned their posts to accept similar 
positions at The LTniversity of North Carolina at 
Chapel Hill, N. C. They are at present conducting 
the spring training at the southern institution. 

Carl Snavely came to Bucknell in the Fall of 1927 
to succeed Charles B. Moran as Bison football men- 
tor. For five years prior to his acceptance of a Buck- 
nell contract Snavely had been leading the Belle- 
fonte Academy teams to nation wide prominence. 
At Bucknell in se\"en years Snavely coached teams 
won forty-two games, lost si.xteen and tied eight. 
The 1931 team was the only unbeaten major eleven 
in the East. During the past 1933 season the Bisons 
defeated all of the old rivals on the schedule, includ- 
ing Lafayette, Temple, A'illanova and W'. & J. Per- 
haps the most noteworthy accomplishment of Buck- 
nell teams under Snavely to the alumni mind was 
the defeat of Penn State, ancient gridiron rival, in 
four successive games. 

Max Reed, '24, who accompanies Snavely lo 
North Carolina, was a star lineman on Bison teams 
from 1920 to 1923 and later played on the famed 
Frankford Yellow Jackets professional team. He 
was named assistant coach here in 1929. 


The corner of Market and Third Streets in Lewis- 
bui'g was the scene of much activity on the after- 
noon of January 15, 1934 when formal exercises 
marked the opening of the Lewisburg Post Office 
and Federal Building. Invitations had been extended 
to a selected list of towns people and public officials 
of the county, state, and federal government. The 
courtroom on the second floor was crowded to ca- 
pacit}- as Dr. A. A. Winter, Superintendent of the 
Evangelical Homes at Lewisburg opened the meet- 
ing with prayer. Following this invocation a long 
list of prominent officials and personages were called 
upon for remarks. The occasion was marked by the 
presentation of portraits of three L'nited States 
Judges, the late Judge Witmer of Sunbury, the late 
Judge Archbald of Scranton, and Judge Albert Buf- 
fington, at present on the bench in the W^estern 
Pennsylvania District. 

The University was represented by President 
Rainey who spoke on the contribution of education 
to the law. Honorable Albert W. Johnson, '96, Uni- 
ted States Judge of the Middle District of Pennsyl- 
vania made the presentation address at the unveiling 
of the portrait of Judge Buffington. 



"The Rivals" a unique and popular comedy of. 
manners by Richard Sheridan, has been chosen by 
Cap and Dagger for the lead production of the year 
on the campus. Miss PhyUis Joyce, talented young 
English actress, has been secured to take the lead, 
with all the other parts played by campus Thes- 
pians. The production will be staged as the feature 
attraction of the Artist's Course on February 27 and 
28 in the auditorium of the Lewisburg High School. 
The cast will be directed by Professor C. Willard 
Smith of the faculty. 

for J AN. -FEB., 1934 


The Literature Building on the new campus to 
the south of The Quadrangle will soon be open. Ap- 
propriate exercises will be held to celebrate the com- 
pletion of the first unit on the new campus. A ten- 
tative date of March first has been agreed upon as 
the opening date. It is probable that a dinner party 
will be held later in March to formally dedicate the 
structure. Plans have been in the making for several 
months for a combined faculty-trustee dinner and it 
may be that such will be held as the opening cere- 
mony for the Literature Building. 

Landscaping and interior furnishings are all th:it 

remain on the construction program for the build- 
ing. The major tasks of construction such as wood 
work, trim, etc., have been completed. 

The photograph accompanying this article is look- 
ing at the new home of The Literature Group from 
the south. Despite the fact that two more wings are 
needed to complete the whole structure the fabri- 
cated three-fifths appear as a completed unit when 
viewed from the south. The auditorium wing, now 
the western extremity of the building, will become 
the center wing when the building is finally com- 
pleted by the addition of the two proposed wings. 


Alumni are invited to return to the campus for 
the biggest social event of the undergraduate year — 
The Junior Prom. The date is Friday night, Febru- 
ary 16 and the band "Ozzie" Nelson of radio fam(.'. 
One of the greatest "big name" bands of the present 
time, Nelson will appear here with his orchestra and 
Harriet Hilliard, movie star and soloist. 

The Prom will be held in the spacious Women's 
College Dining Hall and will last from nine until 
two. It is, of course, formal. The price is five dollars 
per couple. Tickets may be secured by addressing 
the Alumni Secretary and enclosing the wherewithal. 

Local interest in the afifair is high with many 
alumni of the past decade planning to attend. Res- 
ervations were received from Wilkes-Barre, Scran- 
ton, Harrisburg, and Williamsport by telephone 
when word was given out that Nelson and his or- 
chestra had been booked. 

The dance is the first class function to be held 
under the new social order on the campus where ail 
bookings, plans, and financial details must clear 
through the office of the new Dean of Students. It 
is expected to be a social triumph for the Juniors 
and campus society lights are aglow over the pros- 
pects of the best dance in j'ears. 


Alumni and friends of Bucknell in Rochester and 
Bufifalo, N. Y., were privileged to hear The Men's 
Glee Club in concerts in these cities in December. 
Short appearances were also made before the Ken- 

more High School, near Buft'alo, and the mammoth 
Benjamin Franklin High in Rochester. Attracti^^e 
souvenir pamphlets of the concerts containing cam- 
pus pictures were distributed among the high school 

High praise was showered on the Glee Club in 
Rochester by the press and the audience. The club 
is directed by Professor Melvin LeMon, former stu- 
dent at Eastman School of Music in Rochester. Con- 
certs on the tour were also given over radio stations 
WBEN in Buffalo and WHAM in Rochester. 

Some twenty alumni in Bufifalo attended the con- 
cert there in the Delaware Avenue Baptist Church 
where a short talk on Bucknell was given by the 
Alumni Secretary. It is probable that a new alumni 
club will be organized in the city as a result of the 
Glee Club's visit. 


According to word just received from Washing- 
ton, the Federal Emergency Relief will provide 
financial assistance to students at Bucknell, the 
number so aided not to exceed ten per cent of the 
student bod}% as of October 15, 1933. 

Approximately 100 students at Bucknell can 
therefore take advantage of this offer. Clerical and 
other work on the campus will be laid out for which 
the students will be paid up to $15.00 per month. 
The project at Bucknell will be administered under 
the direction of President Rainey.

BUCKNELL has had a splendid history and tradition in all forms of intercollegiate ath- 
letics. Its alumni and friends may justly be proud of the record which its teams have 
made, and also of the fine spirit of sportsmanship which has characterized all its compe- 
tition. Our teams, in the main, have been coached and led by men who were not only good 
coaches, but who have encouraged the highest type of ideals among our students. This was 
especially true of Mr. Carl G. Snavely who has recently resigned his position with us to 
become head football coach of the University of North Carolina. Mr. Snavel}^ did an ad- 
mirable piece of work for us at Bucknell and every friend of the University regre'ts that we 
were unable to keep him. All of us, I am sure, will follow his career with keen interest and 
with our sincerest best wishes. Also we are not unmindful of the fine service which has been 
given to Bucknell by Mr. Max Reed, assistant coach, who went with Mr. Snavely to North 

~ - \ The resignation of these men gives the University a major problem in finding their suc- 
ce^SQrs. The problem is considerably accentuated because of the unsettled conditions which 
prevail in collegiate football at the present time. Every ojie is aware that, in recent years, 
colleges and universities have placed a major emphasis upon intercollegiate football, and 
there has resulted an unwholesome practice of subsidizing and recruiting players in one form 
or another. Bucknell's policy during this period has been in harmony with the spirit of the 
times. The Athletic Council has given considerable aid to athletics in the form of scholar- 
ships. In granting this aid it has done it frankly and openly, believing always that an honest 
policy was far less evil than resorting to subterfuges and evasions. Furthermore, the Uni- 
versity has insisted that its athletes must meet the same high academic standards as all other 
students. Also the University has followed a strict rule against playing transfer students. 
These policies have mitigated many of the evils of the so-called subsidizing system, and 
have, on the whole, maintained a wholesome spirit in Bucknell athletics. 

We are, however, facing a new situation today. Two years ago the Association of Col- 
leges and Secondary Schools of the Middle Atlantic States and Maryland passed resolutions 
against the subsidizing of athletes either directly or indirectly by colleges and universities 
within its membership. The Association has ruled that any institution failing to comply with 
these regulations will thereby become ineligible for membership in the Association. Loss 
of membership in the Association would seriously jeopardize the academic standing of any 
college. Those schools which had made four-year commitments to students already enrolled 
would be permitted to carry out those agreements, but would not be permitted to recruit any 
new students. Bucknell has been reorganizing its program in compliance with these regula- 
tions and expects to continue to do so. Our policy must conform to the requirements of the 
educational associations to which we belong. We must operate our program in harmonj^ 
with the best ideals of our profession. That is certainly our wish, and surely we can afiford 
to do it. Bucknell can, and will compete with its rivals upon whatever terms are agreed upon 
for fair and honorable competition. 

We may as well frankly face the fact that there is much scepticism generally whether 
the rules of the Association against subsidization will be effective, and whether efforts to 
evade them will not make more evils than now exist. The Prohibition Amendment to the 
Federal Constitution taught us much along this line. Nevertheless, we believe the rules are 
designed for the best interests of intercollegiate athletics, and we expect to do our part in 
carrying on a system that is consonant with the highest educational ideals. 

Furthermore, we believe that conditions of modern education demand a more compre- 
hensive health, recreation, and physical education program for all our students than colleges 
have provided in^ the past. In formulating our policy for the future we should take this need 
into account, and provide a program to meet it. Such plans are now a part of our building 
and developmental program. 

In choosing our coaches, therefore, we hope to be guided by these principles which T 
have stated. There are many difficult problems ahead of us in putting these principles into 
operation, and I earnestly solicit the sympathetic cooperation of every alumnus and friend 
of Bucknell in this task. Faithfully yours,

Lewisburg, Pa. 
January 23, 1934. 
Mr. Alfred G. Stoughton, 
Alumni Secretary, 
Bucknell University, 
Lewisburg, Pa. 
Dear Mr. Stoughton: 

We the undersigned Bucknell graduates would be greatly pleased to have 
you propose the name of Earl Morgan Richards of the class of 1913 to the 
Alumni Council as a candidate for membership on the Board of Trustees of 
Bucknell University. 

Since graduation Mr. Richards has held, consecutively, positions of exe- 
cutive responsibility with the Westinghouse Airbrake Co., Swoboda Engi- 
neering Co., Jones & Laughlin Steel Corporation, and at present is Chief 
Industrial Engineer for the Republic Steel Corporation. 

He is a faithful and loyal Alumnus interested at all times in the welfare 
of our Alma Mater, and he has a keen appreciation of our problems and our 
aspirations. His extensive business connections and broad executive experi-

The Bucknell Bookshelf, as pictured herewitli, 
contains some thirty-five volumes published by 
Bucknellians. More than half this number were re- 
ceived during the past month in answer to a call 
appearing in this magazine. The books cover a wide 
range of interests and represent a good cross section 
of alumni life. 

Classes ranging from 1869 to 1916 have authors 
on the shelf with six books by faculty members, not 
alumni. The class of 1911 leads the list with five 
books. 1908 and 1912 are tied for second position 
with four books each. The class of 1902 would easily 
capture first honors if the twenty-two boy's books 
by Dr. Lewis E. Theiss were added to the shelf. 

A complete review of all the books received by 
March first will be published in the next number of 
this magazine. Books now on the Bucknell Book- 
shelf and gratefully acknowledged by The Alumni

seven years editor of The Girl Scout 
Leader. She has also been editor of 
several denominational magazines.

World, and Young People. As a pub- 
licity and educational worker on the

ance, and provide her with many hours

The chapters dealing with hobbies 
and handicrafts are most interesting: 
pottery, enameling, stenciling, book- 
binding, cooking, dressmaking, mari- 
onettes, motion pictures, theatricals, 
and folk dancing. Nor does Mrs. Lan- 
ders fail to deal with physical things: 
health, and the care of the various 
parts of the body. 

A valuable portion of the book is 
the bibliography, at the close of each 
chapter. This gives a list of books 
available on the topics treated. With 
increasing leisure time, for young and 
old, there is no doubt of the value of 
books directed to help us make intelli- 
gent use of our personal aptitudes and 
of our leisure time.

The death of Mrs. Jennie Loomis 
Tyler, niece of • Dr. Justin Loomis, 
former president of The University at 
Lewisburg, occurred at her home in 
Attica, N. Y. on January 4, 1934. She 
was aged seventy-seven at the time of 
her death. Mrs. Tyler was married in 
18.56 to Phyletus Tyler in 1878 with 
Dr. Loomis, who was then president 
of the college, performing the cere- 
mony. She was a graduate of the High 
School at Attica and of the Institute 
at Lewisburg. She is survived by her 
husband, one son and two daughters. 
Mrs. Mary Lyda Bucher 
Fritchey died in Los Angeles 
at the home of a son on 
Christmas Day, 1933. Mrs. 
Fritchey was the widow of 
former Judge A. T. Fritchey 
of Olney, 111. 

One of the most loyal of 
Bucknell trustees and alumni. 
Dr. Lincoln Hulley, died sud- 
denly of a heart attack at 
Deland, Florida on January 
20, 1934. Dr. Hulley was 
president of Stetson Univer- 
sity. He was the valedictori- 
an of his Bucknell graduat- 
ing class and later look grad- 
uate work at Harvard and 
the University of Chicago 
where he added earned A.B., 
A.M., and Ph.D. degrees to 
his name. He returned to 
Bucknell in 1893 as a profes- 
sor and remained until 1904 
when he accepted the post as 
President and Treasurer of 
John B. Stetson University 
at Deland, Florida. 

As an undergraduate Lin- 
coln Hulley was one of the 
editors of Commencement 
News and Literary Editor of 
The Mirror. He was also a 
member of various societies 
and clubs, a football and ten- 
nis player, member of the 
glee club and active in debat- 
ing work. Among the many 
positions he occupied in pub- 
lic life were President of the Florida 
Banker's Association, Member of the 
Florida State Senate, and one time 
candidate for state governor. 

Honors were heaped upon him. In 
1906 his own college. Stetson, gave him 
the degree Litt.D. A year later Deni- 
son University made him an LL.D. 
In 1924 Temple University made him 
a Doctor of Jurisprudence. That same 
year Bucknell made him a Doctor of 
Civil Law. A year later Mercer Col- 
lege awarded him a D.D. Furman Uni- 
versity gave him another Litt.D. de- 
gree, and Southern College at Lake- 
land, Fla., gave him a doctorate in 

When, many years ago, the Bucknell 
alumni demanded a voice in the selec- 
tion of the Bucknell trustees and that 
body agreed to elect the person whom 
the alumni should select, Dr. Hulley 
was the outstanding nominee and so 

became the first so-called "alumni- 
trustee" of Bucknell. He served the 
University faithfully in that position 
ever since 1910. He was also a trus- 
tee of Crozer Theological Seminary. 
President Hulley was twice married. 
His first wife was Miss Harriet E. 
Spratt, of Coatesville, Pa., who died 
within a few years of their marriage. 
In 1893 Dr. Hulley married Miss Elo- 
ise Mayham, of Stamford, N. Y. She 
survives him, together with three chil- 
dren: Mrs. Louise Turner, wife of 
Judge James H. Turner, of Chicago; 
Benjamin M. Hulley, American Consul 
in Dublin; and Mrs. Bary Beatty, wife 


Lincoln Hulley, '88 

of John Beatty of the Carnegie Insti- 
tute at Pittsburgh. Also surviving is 
a daughter by his first marriage, Mrs. 
Harriet Jackson, wife of Dunham 
Jackson, head of the mathematics de- 
partment of the University of Minne- 

The death of Mrs. Blanche Conard 
Andrews Braker, wife of Rev. James 
Scovil Braker, D.D., of Sandusky, O., 
occurred on November 26, 1933. Fun- 
eral services were held in her hus- 
band's church. The First Baptist, and 
burial took place at Scotch Plains, 
N. J. 


Word has been received of the death 
of H. E. Stanton, brother of Dr. Her- 
bert C. Stanton, of Clifton Heights, 
at his home in Chinchilla. He was 
also a brother of Mrs. Eveline Stan- 
ton Gundy, '90, of Lewisburg, Mrs. 
Mary Stanton Speicher, '07, of Read- 
ing, and Prank W. Stanton, '02, of 
Cincinnati, 0. 

We oflfer our most humble apologies 
to the family and friends of the late 
Benjamin F. Thomas and especially 
to his classrnates who have heard of 
his death and looked in vain in these 
columns for the obituary notice. 
Through an unexplainable error the 
story written at the time of Professor 
Thomas' death never reached our 
printer and in the customary haste of 
publication the omission was over- 
looked.— The Editor. 

Benjamin F. Thomas died at his 
home in Lewisburg on May 
16, 1933 of heart trouble He 
was aged sixty-five years. At 
the time of his death he was 
an insurance representative 
and one of the leading sales- 
men for a nationally known 
company. Mr. Thomas was 
a native of Wales and was 
educated in this country at 
Keystone Academy and Buck- 
nell. He later returned to 
Keystone Academy as a 
teacher and from there went 
to Peddie Institute. In 1904 
he returned to Bucknell as 
Principal of the Academy 
where he remained until 
1910. He then accepted the 
principalship of Keystone 
Academy where he served 
for eight years only to re- 
turn to Bucknell in 1918 as 
Registrar of the University. 
He resigned this post in 1921 
to take up life insurance 

Mr. Thomas was married 
in 1903 to Jennie Clark, who, 
with six children, survive. 
H. W. D. Kirkendall of 
Wenatchee, Washington, re- 
ports the death of his wife 
who has been with him in 
Washington since 1899. 

Contrary to the item in our 
recent number concerning 
Chas. F. McMann, we have 
Mr. McMann's own letter to the effect 
that his apartment house property was 
disposed of some considerable time 
ago. He reports that he is at present 
engaged as a department manager for 
the Schulze Baking Company in Des 
Moines. Mr. McMann resides at the 
Y. M. C. A. He also chides us gently 
for being ungallant in listing Dr. 
Mary Harris with the class of '84 in- 
stead of rightfully with '94. Our most 
humble apologies Dr. Harris! It is 
unforgiveable — even though a typo- 
graphical error. 


We have been advised of the tragic 
death of Mrs. Elizabeth Ausherman, 
wife of Jeremiah Ausherman of Read- 
ing. Mrs. Ausherman is survived by 
her husband and one daughter,

College at California, Pa., relates an 
air experience of the president of the 
college, Dr. Robert M. Steele, who re- 
cently boarded a transport plane at

printing of the early letters may soon

finishing touches on a new book, "In-

Editor^s Corner 

THIS corner seems to depend large- 
ly upon the weather — not that 
we haven't anything else to write 
about, thank you — but our writing 
does seem to turn on the change of 
temperature, etc. Last trip down this 
column of type it was sub zero — now 
we are writing by an open window 
looking out to the verdant green of the 
campus in Springtime. Tra La! Tra 

WE are advised to expect the 
"onion snov/" before Spring 
really settles down to business 
and the golf course becomes playable 
but why dwell upon such eventualities 
when the weather is so lovely today ? 

JUST so with Alma Mater — why 
be prophets of doom or gloom or 
such when we are on the High 
Road to a newer and finer Bucknell ? 
You doubt it ? Come to the campus 
and see for yourself! Just because we 
have a new president and a new foot- 
ball coach and the old order changeth 
is no sign that it is not all for the 
best. We grow and we progress and 
every day a different Bucknell e- 
merges. Your Bucknell, it is true, 
is of the past but today's Bucknell is 
for today and tomorrow and a measure 
of your progress and modernity is to 
be found in your interest in the chang- 
ing Bucknell. 

FINE old traditions that have be- 
become a definite part of Alma 
Mater become more firmly rooted 
as their worth is proved in the testing- 
furnace of time. "Old Main" stands, 
even in ruins, as a symbol of our 
stz'ength of purpose, integrity of char- 
acter, and devotion to the right in the 
training and education of the youth 
of today. So, likewise, does the new 
Literature building face the west with 
two porches each with the four col- 
umns of "Old Main". 

THE old is linked with the new in 
the latest unit to grace the sky- 
line of the hilltop. Inside the build- 
ing are to be found evidences of the 
changing order where comfortable 
seminar rooms take the place of the 
rigid benches and lecterns of a former 
day. A lounging room of beauty takes 
the place of dark hallways and stairs 
as a student abode between classes. 
Delicately tinted and modernly fur- 
nished faculty offices take the place 
of "cubbyholes" that were once offices. 
"Going to college" now has eye appeal 
and beautiful architecture and decora- 
tion will have a definite part in the 
shaping of young lives. 

COMMENCEMENT approaches on 
wings of speed. All too soon the 
"glad days of June" will be come 
and gone for another year. We are 
planning now for your reception at 
Commencement time and have new

the staid and academic Commence- 
ment. Alumni Day is Saturday, June 9 
and Alumni Headquarters will be in the 
beautiful new Literature Building on 
the Hill. Here we will greet you and 
meet with you in the annual Aluinni

way to Alumni on June 9. Are you 
coming to see old friends amidst both 
old and new surroundings ? Your 
Alma Mater welcomes you. 

many wishes for a North Jersey group 
in the past ten years. It took the new 
generation of alumni men and women 
graduates since 1920 — to swing the 
organization but their efforts are 
bearing fruit in a big alumni party 
for April 20. Congratulations North- 
ern New Jersey alumni! 

WE congratulate the alumni of 
Northern New Jersey! They 
have exercised the first right 
of an American — revolution — and 
formed the Northern New Jersey 
Alumni Club thereby declaring them- 
selves a separate nation and inde- 
pendent of the "old country" The New 
York Alumni Club. We have- heard 

WE write of Mylin, the new foot- 
ball coach, in another column, 
but we might suggest you leaf 
over your calendar pad to October 27 
and mark it with a heavy crayon as 
Homecoming at Bucknell with Villa- 
nova as the gridiron attraction. The 
remainder of the schedule appears on 
another page. 

THE calendar is complete and we 
are once again back to Spring 

just where we started. See you 
at Commencement!

A .SPECIAL folder designed to restate the his- 
tory and purpose of The Bucknell Alumni 
Fund will be mailed to all alumni in the next 
few days. This appeal has been deemed necessary 
by The Alumni Fund Committee to enlist further 
alumni cooperation on this three year old project 
which has already attracted gifts from nearly one 
thousand alumni. 

The "Whys and Replies" title of the little folder 
explains the contents wherein questions asked by 
alumni concerning the fund are answered. It is 
hoped by The Committee that the answers will be so 
• satisfactory to alumni that our announced goal of 
one thousand gifts before June will become a reality. 

In brief the story of the Alumni Fund is one of 
organized and planned giving to Bucknell University 
with the Alumni Association as the channel through 
which alumni gifts should naturally flow. A gift to 
The Alumni Fund not only aids in the financial 
operation of the Alumni Association in its many 
sided activities but also relieves the University 
budget of the subsidy that would otherwise be neces- 
sary to maintain alumni relations and The Bucknell 
Alumni Monthly. Thus a fund gift is directh' a gift 
to the University. 

The Alumni Fund is the outgrowth of 3'ears of 
experience in collecting dues and magazine subscrip- 
tions and special funds in many colleges and univer- 
sities. It is the modern method of alumni and college 
financing in that it acts as a parallel and necessary 
adjunct to endowment funds. Alumni fund gifts are 
spent in toto each year instead of being invested and 
the interest alone used. 

Thus in any given year a gift to The Alumni 
Fund is equal in purchasing power to twenty times 
its figure in endowment funds. A gift of $50 re]5re- 
sents to the Alumni Fund the equivalent of $1000 
in endowment. 

The oft repeated question "Why should 1 give"? 
is answered in one word "Loyalty". More than five 
hundred loyal alumni gave to the fund during the 
past year. Their endorsement and their loyalty 
should be a challenge to their fellow Bucknellians. 

Use the card enclosed with "Whys and Replies" 
to mail your gift to Bucknell. 

been invited. Photographs and a complete story 
about the building and reception will be featured 

in our ]\Iay number. 


The first classes to use The Literature Building 
moved from the old Academy Building early in 
March to their new home. With furniture installed 
later in the month the building now is in complete 
occupancy by classes and faculty members. The 
auditorium received its first assemblage on St. Pat- 
rick's Day, March 17, when more than four hundred 
bankers of District Four of the Pennsylvania State 
Bankers Association were guests of the University. 

Plans call now for the formal dedication of the 
building on April 21 when a special meeting of the 
Board of Trustees will be held on the campus in con- 
nection with a dinner and reception to which all 
faculty and administrative officers and wives have 


Plans are being formulated for a Bucknell dinner 
on the night of May 24 in Rochester, N. Y. in con- 
nection with the annual Northern Baptist Conven- 
tion to be held at that time. Bucknellians in attend- 
ance at the meeting and resident alumni in Rochester 
will be in\'ited to meet with President and Mrs. 
Rainev at the dinner.

ONE of the most serious results of the economic depression through which we have 
been passing is the crisis in education. It is difficult to estimate just how serious the 
- crisis really is. We can cite figures and statistics relative to reductions in teachers' 
salaries and curtailment of programs and t^e closing of schools and colleges, but we can 
never measure the loss in spiritual assets that result from inferior education and the loss 
of it altogether. 

The situation in public education is desperate, and the colleges of the country are suf- 
fering equally as much. A recent report from the Office of Education in Washington, D. 
C. reveals some of the seriousness of the situation faced by the colleges. "Almost half the 
church colleges are in arrears in payments due their faculties in February." "In 18 church 
institutions and 3 private colleges, salaries, which were never large, have been cut 50 per cent 
or more. Twenty-one of 69 private institutions, and 174 out of 210 church colleges reporting 
have reduced salaries 20 per cent or more." Tn addition to these facts, many of these same 
colleges are carrying staggering debts. Eighty institutions including 17 private and 63 
church colleges are carrying over 16 millions of dollars of indebtedness, or an average of over 
$200,000 per college. 

I think the Alumni of Bucknell will be happy to know that your Alma Mater has stood 
the stress of these difficult years unusually well. We have tried to keep our organization in- 
tact and to maintain the high quality of our work, and at the same time to operate within 
our means. Another of our objectives has been the reorganization of the entire program of 
the University and the formulation of a comprehensive plan to guide our activities in the 
era immediately ahead of us. We have launched an entirely new enterprise, the Junior 
College at Wilkes-Barre, which has great promise of becoming a significant part of the Uni- 
versity in the future. We have, thus, been trying to do what industry, agriculture, and gov- 
ernment are forced to do in order to meet the demands of a radically changed social situa- 
tion. Our future at Bucknell looks hopeful. We believe that our situation next year will be 
improved. Our Alumni can render us a splendid service in telling others of the educational 
opportunities which we offer, and by making new friends and creating goodwill for Bucknell. 

We are making every possible reorganization in order to adjust our expenditures to our 
income for next year. The University needs your loyalty and your sympathetic coopera- 
tion and support in these difficult times. You can aid us greatly by your contribution to 
the Alumni Fund, and by encouraging students to come to Bucknell. Since our endowment 
is relatively small we are dependent largely upon student enrollment for support. We, there- 
fore, earnestly solicit the cooperation of every alumnus of the University in this important 
matter. If you know of a good prospective -tudent for Bucknell will you not use your influ- 
ence with him and encourage him to come, and also will you not notify our offices of such 
students? Such help now will be invaluable to Bucknell in assisting us to improve our con- 
ditions for next year. 

Faithfully yours. 



class of 1905, has been much m the hmeUght 
because of her paintings. Having been long 
well known for her connection with the Garden 
Clubs of several of our largest cities, and with the 
National Garden Club movement, Mrs. Fetherston is 
becoming equally distinguished for the excellence of 
her work as a painter. Her paintings are attracting 
much attention, especially among art lovers in New 
York and Pittsburgh. 

One of Mrs. Fetherston's pictures has been hung 
in the Carnegie Art Gallery in Pittsburgh during 
March of this year in an exhibition of Garden Art, 
sponsored by the Garden Club of Allegheny County 
with the cooperation of the Department of Fine 
Arts and the Department of the Museum of Car- 
negie Institute. The exhibition is one of the finest, 
most complete and satisfying of its kind ever held 
in America. Mrs. Fetherston's picture, loaned at 
the request of Mrs. Roy Arthur Hunt, and called 
"Bride's Orchids" was much admired by artists and 
laymen alike. 

Some thirty-eight of Mrs. Fetherston's pictures 
were exhibited at Ferargil Galleries in New York in 
May and June of last year (1933) and those Galleries 
will have a second exhibit of the paintings of this 
talented artist the latter part of next month. 

To Lewisburg, Mrs. Fetherston will always be 
Edith Kelly. She is the wife of John T. Fetherston. 
a distinguished engineer of New York, where they 
reside at 114 East 40th Street. 1905 is proud of the 
work of this daughter of Bucknell. 

Another very talented and distinguished sister 
of the class of 1905 has been quietly but consistently 
developing and gaining fame in Pittsburgh. Only 
a few days ago the Woman's City Club of Pitts- 
burgh held an afternoon Convocation in honor of 
Ruth Stephens Porter, (Bucknell 1905), now a com- 
poser of note, of whom Pittsburgh, especially mu- 
sical Pittsburgh, is very proud indeed. For several 
years Mrs. Porter has been known as Pittsburgh's 

1905 Boasts of Two Distinguished Ladies 

leading composer of children's songs and children's 
music. She is admittedly without peer in that City 
and probably has no superior in America. 

Mrs. Porter's published works include : 

A book, entitled "Songs of the Season" — pub- 
lished by Willis & Company, Cincinnati, Ohio. 

Songs in "The Music Education Series" — Ginn 
& Co. 

Songs in "The Music Hour" by Silver Burdette. 

Songs in "The Universal School Music Series." 
by Hinds, Hayden & Eldridge (edited by Gartlau, 
Damrosch &: Gehrkens). 

The following periodicals have published songs 
and articles by Mrs. Porter: 

Childhood Education (International Kindergar- 
ten Magazine) 

American Childhood 

Primary Education 

Junior Home Magazine 

The Instructor 

A song, recently given at the Tuesday Musical 
Club in Pittsburgh, entitled "Spring," has just ap- 
peared in the March issue of "The Instructor" (pub- 
lished by F. A. Owen Co., Dansville, N. Y.). A 
poem by Mrs. Porter, entitled "Mr. Sleepyhead" 
has been set to music by Arthur Whiting and ap- 
pears in "The Music Hour" (Silver Burdette). A 
poem, entitled "The Way to Dreamland Town" has 
been set to music by G. A. Grant-Schaefer. It like- 
wise a]3pears in "The Music Hour." 

Mrs. Porter has prepared the librettos for three 
operettas for use with the "Universal Series" (Dam- 
rosch books) of which one has been published, en- 
titled "The Scouts' Trip to Fairyland." The others, 
one in verse, await publication. 

The productive nature of Mrs. Porter's genius is 
such that her friends generally and the music world 
in particular expect to have continued opportunity to 
enjoy and apjilaud her works. Mrs. Porter likewise 
was a Lewisburg girl and now- lives with her chil- 
dren in a charming- and well managed home in Graf-

for MAR.-APR., 1934 


FROM a field of more than one hundred applicanLs 
for the post of football mentor at Bucknell to 
succeed Carl G. Suavely, resigned, The Bucknell 
x\thletic Council signed Edward Everett Mylin, 
Franklin and Marshall 1915, to a three year contract 
on February 27, 1934. 

The announcement ot 
Carl Snavely's resigna,- 
tion to accept the coach- 
ing post at the Univer- 
sity of North Carolina 
came as a bombshell to 
Bucknell in January af- 
ter his successful seven 
year period of coaching 
the Orange and Blue. 

Coach Mylin, who is 
known as "Hooks", (and 
doesn't care for the Ed- 
ward Everett) comes to 
Bucknell after an eleven 
year tenure as coach at 
Lebanon Valley College, 
at Annville. His play- 
ing record as a quartei- 

back at F. & M. before E. E. Mylin 

the War earned him na- 
tional recognition at that time. He was given 
credit for field generalship in 1914 when his team 
beat Penn. After graduation from F. & M. he 
coached for three years at Iowa State. During the 
War he was a captain in the 79th Division, A. E. F., 
and was also director of all athletics for the Divi- 

Graduate managers and coaches who knon' 
"Hooks" praise him highly as a keen student of the 
game and able teacher. His sparkling personality 
has won him many friends in the collegiate athletic 
world and during his brief two w-eeks of Spring- 
Training at Lewisburg has established himself as a 
definite part of Bucknell. 

To replace Max Reed, '24, who accompanies 

E. E. "Hooks" Mylin Sisned by Athletic Council 

Snavely to North Carolina, Coach Mylin brings with 
him to Bucknell his assistant coach in the person of 
"Marty" McAndrews, Former Penn State football 
player and one time intercollegiate boxing champion. 
Mylin's record of games in eleven years at 

Lebanon Valley is im- 
pressive for a small col- 
ege team. Forty-two 
games were won, twelve 
tied and forty-one lost. 
Among the foes to feel 
Jie sting of defeat from 
Lebanon Valley under 
Mylin were the famous 
Brown Iron Men, Villa- 
nova in 1926 when they 
defeated Bucknell, and 
every team in the small 
college conference group 
of eastern Pennsylvania. 


At the termination of 
Spring Training at Buck 
nell Coach Mylin praised the men who will comprise 
the 1934 Bison machine as well taught and able 
players. A nucleus of more than a dozen lettermen 
will make up the varsity for 1934. The gaps in the 
ranks caused by the graduation of such stellar play- 
ers as Myers, Peters, Farina, James, Dempsey, and 
others will be filled from the freshman squad of the 
past season. Mylin expects some of the yearlings to 
give older varsity men stiff competition for "first" 

The new schedule of games for 1934 listing two 
newcomers to the Bucknell card is partly of the mak- 
ing or suggestion of the new coach. His wide contacts 
in the football world are expected to produce more 
newcomers during 1935 and 1936. The Fall Schedule 
of football games is given in another column. 

Professor M. L. Drum, '02, has called attention to 
a recent circular letter mailed to the entire member- 
ship of The Society for The Promotion of Engineer- 
ing Education in which his review of "Vocational 
Guidance in Engineering" printed in our June 1933 
issue is quoted. 

Coach Carl G. Snavely working with a veteran 
infield and a crop of last year's freshmen is round- 
ing out a baseball team for Bucknell this Spring that 
is expected to produce results in the games won 
column. The card lists eighteen games for the ash 
and horsehide boys. They visit Reading to play 
Albright on April 28, Philadelphia to battle Temple 
on May 7, and West Point to face the Rrmy on May 
23 as their three "alumni" trips. The complete 
schedule follows :

By Dr. L. L. Rockwell 

AMONG the constantly shrinking differentiae 
which distinguish man from animal, two still 
remain pretty much unchallenged — language 
and religion. If human civilization be dependent on 
the cultural heritage made possible by language, 
many of humanity's finer achievements are insep- 
arably united with the aspirations we group under 
the name religion. Religions have come and gone, 
but religion remains. 

In times of rapid social change, the reconciliation 
of tradition and progress in religion becomes a prob- 
lem of great difficulty. The dichotomy between the 
aesthetic and the social phases of religion threatens 
the effectiveness of religious institutions as instru- 
ments of social control. New wine threatens to 
burst the old wineskins before new ones can be pre- 
pared. Particularly under the assault of the aggres- 
sive new social philosophies which are now bidding 
for the loyalty of our youth, religious institutions 
which functioned a few years ago stand convicted 
of impotence. 

College religious organizations are particularly 
put to it to justify themselves. Devoted to a group 
of young men and women suddenly uprooted and 
tasting for the first time freedom of action, in many 
instances also for the first time facing the demand 
for a critical analysis of institutions to which they 
are accustomed, campus organizations are exposed 
to frank and frequently hasty and unjust criticism. 

Upon these organizations falls the heavy responsi- 
bility for aiding students to make an intelligent 
transition from thoughtless obedience to the pat- 
terns of behavior fostered by their home environ- 
ment, to a thoughtful choice of conduct in religious 

At Bucknell the Y. M. C. A. has courageously 
undertaken the task of formulating a program which 
will meet this need for students who are genuinely 
interested in developing mature habits of thought 
and action. This program has been gradually and 

soundly expanded over a period of years to include 
widely varied activities. The recently published 
leaflet "Adventures in Thinking and Living" reveals 
this program to be adequate to provide healthy out- 
lets of many types for the religious impulse. 

A loan library of works by frontier thinkers, dis- 
cussion groups, addresses by nationally known 
speakers of many shades of opinion, provide for in- 
tellectual expansion. Father's Day, Mother's Day, 
the fraternity pledge dinner, popular At Homes 
(they really are popular!), excursions, take care of 
the social man. Enlistment in community welfare 
projects provides active training for helpful citi- 

Although the working out of the program is a co- 
operative project enlisting a large group of students 
and faculty, it would be ungracious not to single out 
some men who by their loyal devotion over a long 
term of service have contributed greatly to the con- 
tinuity of effort and success of the Y. Professors 
Charles M. Bond and Orel S. Groner have earned 
the title of "Elder Statesmen" by their veteran ser- 
vice. More recently Comptroller Dayton Ranck, '16, 
and until his transfer to Wilkes-Barre Professor J. 
H. Eisenhauer, '05, have made great contributions 
of time and energy. The mainspring of the organiza- 
tion since his arrival four years ago has been Forrest 
Brown. His quiet, modest, and cheerful industry 
and wisdom have been the main-stay of the program. 

The success of the effort can be gauged in the 
gradually changed student attitude toward the Y. M. 
C. A. At one time regarded with actual hostility 
by the students in general, it has come to be at the 
worst accepted and for the most part approved even 
by those who have no active part in its activities. 
Those who are active are for the most part enthus- 
iastic over the work. These attitudes are the result 
of the gradual development of a program which by 
its broad appeal and sound nature must have the 
respect of any thinking student.

Northern New Jersey Alumni Organize New Club With Elaborate Plans 
for Newark Dinner and Dance. 

UNDER the leadership of an active group of 
j^ounger alumni plans have been completed for 
the first meeting of the newly organized Buck- 
nell Alumni Club of Norehtrn New Jersey. The plans 
include a dinner and dance at Hotel Douglas, New- 
ark, N. J. on the evening of April 20. 

Several organization meetings were held in Feb- 
ruary and March to plan the new alumni club. Com- 
mittees were selected and Charles D. Loveland, '11, 
named temporary chairman of the new organization. 
At a later meeting committee reports were heard and 
permanent officers elected as follows : 

President — John Stoughton Cregar, M.D., '27 

Vice-President — Paul E. Fink, '29 

Secretary — Samuel Bernhaut, Esq., '28 

Treasurer — John R. Gilmour, M.D., '27 
An executive committee consisting of C. D. Love- 
land, '11, Weaver W. Pangburn, '10, Rev. Finley 
Keech, '22, Paul J. Sanders, '11, and Albert J. Clark, 
'15, was also elected. 

In consideration of the fact that the alumni of the 
Northern New Jersey section embraced by the new^ 
club were former members of the Greater New York 
Alumni Group special provision was made in the 
constitution of the new club for cooperation with 
the parent group. 

Encouragement and assistance was afforded th-i 
new officers by the Alumni Office at Lewisburg in 
their formation of plans for the April 20 dinner and 
dance. President Rainey, Coach Mylin, and the 
Alumni Secretary have been booked as speakers for 
the affair. Complete details of the party as planned 
appear in a letter to all alumni from Dr. Cregar on 
this page. 

With the liquidation of accounts in closed banks 
by the State, The Bucknell Alumni Fund over a per- 
iod of months has become the beneficiary of The 
Alumni Club of Altoona. A recent check from the 
Comptroller of the Currency as third dividend on 
the account of the Altoona group runs the total con- 
tribution of this Bucknell alumni club to $36.91. 
Other alumni clubs please take notice! 


Two strangers appear on the 1934 Bucknell foot- 
ball schedule as the first two games of the year. 
They are Davis-Elkins of West Virginia and The 
Pennsylvania Military College, better known as P 
M. C. of Chester. Both are night games at Lewis- 
burg on September 28 and October 5, respectively. 
The remainder of the card follows: 
October 13 — Duquesne at Pittsburgh 
October 20 — St. Thomas at Scranton 
October 27— VI LLANO VA 

November 3 — Furmen at Greenville, S. C. 
November 10 — W. & J. at Washington, Pa. 
November 17 — Western Maryland at Lewisburg 
November 29 — Temple at Philadelphia 

To all Bucknellians everj'where, 


From the members of the 

Bucknell University Alumni Club of Northern 

New Jersey : 

We are happy to greet you at the Spring of 
a year which we are sure will be a better one 
for all of us because of the organization of this 
Club. The opportunities for renewing old 
friendships and establishing new ones are al- 
most unlimited, for at its inception this group 
has some 450 members, and the possibilities for 
rapid growth are rather startling. We plan to 
pursue good fellowship to its utmost bounds 
and we invite every Bucknellian who comes 
this way to join us. It is our sincere desire 
that the close of the year shall find our Club 
a vitally important member of the Alumni 

Riding on a flood tide of interest and enthus- 
iasm we are beginning our social career on 
April 20th at the Hotel Douglas in Newark, N. 
J. Our festival of fun is to take the form of a 
dinner-dance, and we will assemble in the hotel 
lobby promptly at 7:45 P.M. Pennants, bal- 
loons, and flowers will harmonize to produce 
a symphony of Orange and Blue in the ball- 
room. Our entertainment committee, under the 
guidance of Paul Fink, C-29, as chairman, has 
arranged an excellent program which includes 
group singing, a superb orchestra for dancing, 
and an address by our President, Dr. Homer 
P. Rainey. Our Alumni Secretary, who has 
been invaluable to us in our organization work 
up to this point, will be on hand with Coach 
Mylin to give us added impetus. By and large, 
what with good food, good fellowship, keen at- 
mosphere, and something to challenge the in- 
terest every minute of the evening, the occa- 
sion promises to be a memorable one for all 
who are privileged to attend. 

A cordial invitation is extended to all Buck- 
nellians and friends of the University who may 
find it possible to be in this neighborhood to 
participate in our festival of fun. To the New 
York, Trenton, and Philadelphia Clubs a spe- 
cial invitation is given. Come and enjoy this 
evening with us. The chairman of the ticket 
committee, D. Eugene Long, C-29, will be glad 
to furnish you with as many tickets as you may 
need, at $1.75 each. He may be addressed a't 
133 Rhode Island Avenue, East Oranee N T 
(Tel. Or 5-104S). ' -^' 

We give you our pledge of friendship and an 
earnest desire to serve the best interests of the 
University as we launch out together into a 
new era as Bucknellians.

Dear Classmate: 

The response last year on the pait 
of '96 to the Alumni Fund was very 
gratifying. You will remember that 
%e called attention to the fact that 
the fund would be used for student 
loans with properly endorsed notes 
payable after graduation, thus assui- 
fng a double gift to our Alma Matei 
once when your gift helps the student 
to complete his course and again when 
he pays back the loan to the fund 

We also called attention to the fact 
that the actual present purchasing pow- 
er of every gift was equivalent to that 
obtained from an endowment twenty 
times as large with interest at 5% 
SIOO.OO endowment gives the Univer 
sity S5.00 to use; your gift of §5.0U 

'°0ur'c1as"was above the average in 
its loyalty last year. The successful 
oDerXn of the plan durmg these 
years of distress has proved its sound- 
ness The success of the plan depends 
upon a large number of relatively 
S gifts. The aim is to get every

Mount Vernon, N. Y. 

It will be thirty-seven years at the 
coming Commencement since we be- 
came Alumni of "Old Bucknell". These 
years have not dulled our memories 
or lessened our appreciation of the 
lasting benefits received from four 
years of student life together. It is 
well that we confess our debtorship 
to our Alma Mater on every suitable 
occasion. Is not the annual round-up 
of our contributions to the Alumni 
Fund such an occasion? 

In addressing this letter to my fel- 
low classmates of '97, I want to sug- 
gest that we qualify as a 1007^ class. 
However small the contributions may 

be, let every one of us be a contributor. 
More important by far than the mea- 
sure of our gifts is the proof they will 
give that we ourselves loyal, grateful, 
thoughtful alumni, are sending back 
to dear Bucknell. 

Gratefully yours, 


Des Moines, la. 
Gratitude is one of the greatest 
expressions we can ever make. No 
doubt every member of the distin- 
guished class of 1901, loyal to Buck- 
nell, has cherished the idea of some- 
time doing something for the Univer- 
sity that has done so much for them. 
Without waiting until we become com- 
fortably fixed we now have an oppor- 
tunity to express our gratitude and 
show" our interest by making a gift 
no matter how small or large and at 
the same time investing in living per- 
sonalities. Let's make it 100 >f. 


Slatington, Pa. 
Dear Classmates: 

Has there ever been any depression 
in our loyalty to Bucknell? Now is 
the time to let that loyalty assert it- 
self. Why not tell the committee that 
you are as loyal as in 1902 and prove 
it by inserting a little gift with that 
letter? With the original of this let- 
ter, inclosed to "Al" Stoughton, is a 
little gift for 1902 and a little gift 
for (John M.) 1930. Double loyalty 
in a single stroke! Come on. Class- 
mates! Let's go!

good reason advanced for contributing

Dear Friends: 

One Thousand Alumni Donors be- 
fore Commencement is the goal of that 
great Alumni body, men and women, 
who have trod the paths and frequent- 
ed the halls of Old Bucknell. 

The class of 1907 has never failed, 
and it will not fail now, the cause is 
worthy and the amount is consistent 
with our circumstances. Y'ou are not 
asked to give a large amount: but to 

send something in order that your 
name may help make that list of One 
Thousand loyal alumni and the class 
of 1907 be represented one hundred 
per cent. 

Our class loyalty will be shown by 
the way we respond to this call of 
the Alumni Association — So come 
along class of 1907. 

Sincerely yours, 



Reading, Pa. 

We are on the threshold of another 
anniversary of the plan to provide 
financial support for Bucknell through 
the medium of annual gifts. 

The soundness of the plan, its ef- 
fectiveness in solving acute problems, 
and its wisdom in a long range sense, 
have been conclusively demonstrated. 

Anniversaries are useful reminders 
of what has been achieved, indeed 
they are stimulating in their challenge 
to greater achievements. 

This year the goal is 1,000 donors 
to the Bucknell Alumni Fund before 
Commencement. To achieve the goal 
requires merely a unity of spirit. And 
from that impulse will come some 
small gift, a symbol of comradeship, 
and the consummation of a genuine 
partnership of interest in Bucknell.

past in showing loyalty to Bucknell. 
We want to continue this, and those 
who have not joined in previous years 
will be welcomed this year. It is the 
number of givers, not the amount of 
the gifts, that shows the measure of 
class loyalty. 

The Bucknell Alumni Fund presents 
itself for your active consideration, 
again this year. In making this ap- 
peal, Bucknell is following the custom 
of colleges to meet the many needs 
for which a limited endowment does 
not provide. If you are at all hazy 

for MAR.-APR., 1934 


concerning the purpose of the Fund, 
write me for an explanation. 

Do you know of any news for this 
column? Certainly some big event 
has happened in your life that you 
would like your classmates to know 
about. Send it to me or to the Alum- 
ni Office with your gift. A change of 
address is enough to write about, be- 
cause our files must be kept up to 

Remember June 1936. Start to pre- 
pare now for our twentieth reunion. 
We should have 100 per cent attend- 
ance at that time. We also should 
give to the Bucknell Alumni Fund 
now, as an expression of our faith and 
hope for a greater Alma Mater. 
Very truly yours,

The Bucknell Alumni Monthly is a 
blessing to alumni scattered all over 
the world. Your annual contribution 
to the Alumni Fund makes possible 
this service to Bucknellians every- 
where. Your check for any amount 
will help maintain this good work. 



Pittsburgh', Pa. 

The entire Alumni Fund Movement 
for securing contributions from Alum- 
ni is built around the personal canvass 
of the Class Agent. Continued suc- 
cess of the Fund depends fundamental- 
ly upon his efforts and upon the re- 
sponse of each Member of the Class. 
In that way the Class becomes welded 
into a compact and efficient unit work- 
ing for the good of Bucknell. 

Prompt response to each annual call 
for contributions materially reduces 
the work required of the Class Agent. 

Small subscriptions made annually 
by the many are more to be desired 
than a few large contributions. Tliey 
amount to a living endowment of large 
proportions. In its endeavor to obtain 
the moral backing of all Alumni, the 
Alumni Fund Committee has always 
stressed the importance of the number 
of subscribers rather than the amount 
■given. It is not trying to persuade 
Alumni to "give until it hurts" but to 
make them realize that "it is a pleas- 
ure to co-operate." This alone assures 
the future growth and stability of the 
Fund and its position as a reliable re- 
source for the Alumni Association in 
its outstanding financial needs and de-

To mv fellow-members of the Class 

of '21: 

"Remember the days of old" — at 
Bucknell — 

"And when the stream which over- 
flowed the soul was passed away, 

A consciousness remained that it 
had left deposited upon the silent 
shores of memory, 

Images and precious thoughts that 
shall not die and cannot be destroyed." 

In the memory of those images and 
thoughts, let each member of the 
Class of '21 contribute to the 1934 
Alumni Fund; — give something, 
though the amount be small. 



Pittsburgh, Pa. 
Dear Classmates: 

Last Spring, with the assistance of 
the Alumni Office, I sent you three 
postcards containing brief messages. 
The first card you received definitely 
stated that we would not ask for con- 
tributions to the Alumni Fund, owing 
to the economic situation. However, 
we did try to stimulate a little extra 
interest to get you to return to Com- 
mencement and Homecoming I didn't 
go back for Commencement, but I did 
return to the old Campus for Home- 
coming and saw the Bison Warriors 
hang up a 20 to 6 victory over Pop 
Warner's Temple aggregation. 

It was a beautiful day and a great 
game of football, but the most enjoy- 
able experiences of all were to see and 
talk with some of the old crowd with 
whom we buddied — and believe me, 
there were a lot of them back. Why 
listen — I was in my seat in the sta- 
dium when someone behind me yelled 
"Hey, Bows" and I looked around and 
there was one of the old Pals in the 
person of "Pi" Morrett. What a thrill! 
That was only one of the many. And 
if you were there, you experienced a 
similar delight. 

You know, it's just kinda hard to 
swallow — excuse my getting senti- 
mental — but it just doesn't seem 
right that the Classmates of 1923 have 
to be scattered so far and wide and see 
each other so seldom. I have purpose- 
ly said the Class of '23 because I feel 
there was no class before nor since 
quite so good. We were the first class 
to enter Bucknell after the War, and I 
believe we must have carried with us 
some of the martial spirit of preceding 
years, for, as a class, we certainly ac- 
complished things; did them up in gen 
uine thorough-bred fashion; not only 
those tasks in the classroom, but also 
those "extra curricular activities." 
And the result, it seems to me, was to 
knit our friendships closer than those 
of other classes. 

But, Classmates, we can't ride for- 
ever on our laurels — there are still 
important things to be done, which we 
can do in that good old fashioned 1923 
way, if we will only refreshen our 
pride with the memories of a fev/ 
years ago and muster up the same 
spirit that "Shorty" Parmlee had when 
he led the Class fight at the flag pole. 
The Alumni Fund needs our assist- 
ance this year more than ever before. 
We didn't ask for funds last year, but 
this year we're not so thin-skinned. 
Bucknell did a lot for you and me. 
Let's start this year to express our 
appreciation and at the same time re- 
veal the pride and spirit of the great- 
est class to ever enter the portals of 

Contribute any amount you wish and 
pay it monthly, quarterly, semi-annu- 
ally, or annually — but CONTRIB- 
UTE. Our motto this year is "Some- 
thing from Everyone." I know two of 
our classmates who two years ago 

gave a dollar each and it certainly was 
appreciated for they made a bigger 
sacrifice than another who gave $25.00. 
"It isn't what you give, but what you 
share, for the gift without the giver 
is bare." 

With sincere good wishes to all and 
hoping that your name will be on the 
honored list of donors and your person 
among those present at Homecoming 
next Fall, I remain. 

Your humble Class Representative, 
P. S. Make check payable to Bucknell 
Alumni Fund and mail to me or to 
Lewisburg. Please do it now before 
you forget it. 


Minneapolis, Minn. 

I believe there is something peculiar 
in the quality of our student genera- 
tion. For most of us, the impression- 
able adolescent years coincided with 
the era of Wilsonian idealism which 
"kept us out of" — and got us into — 
war. I believe that in that period we 
acquired a feeling of social responsi- 
bility that is unique. 

In the period of the "Coolidge pros- 
perity" we were still students or "ap- 
prentices" in business and industry. 
When the crash came in 1929, most 
of us had not yet settled into business 
or professional careers. 

I believe that our student genera- 
tion is better fitted to view dispassion- 
ately the breaking up of the old sys- 
tem, to judge with clear vision the at- 
tempts to establish new American in- 
stitutions, on account of this back- 

Along with the other institutions, 
our schools are undergoing change. 
From top to bottom, from nursery 
school to university, new aims, new 
principles, new services are being em- 
phasized — and attacked. What the 
result will be, no one can tell. But, 
what the schools of our children will 
be like is going to depend, to a large 
extent on us, the decisions we reach 
concerning the social order in which 
we shall live, the relations that shall 
exist between that social order and 
one of its main components, the edu- 
cational system. 

It is for us, now, to stand humbly in 
judgment. Where shall we place our 
support? What tendencies shall we 
oppose ? Indiff"erence is unthinkable. 
The conflict is too critical, the result 
too important, for that. 

Along with the other educational 
institutions of our land, Bucknell is 
undergoing a change. Its change is 
not random; it is directed. It seeks the 
liberalization of the liberal arts col- 
lege, a broadening of the general edu- 
cation of its students, a wider range 
of appreciations and interests for its 
graduates, the development within the 
mdividual of the resources which will 
make him not merely economically 
competent, but also socially conscious 
and ethically responsible. Do you want 
to support such an educational aim ? 

Contributions of money to the Alum- 
ni Fund will, of course, be accepted, 
but your deliberate consideration of 
the problem, not only of Bucknell, but 
of the whole educational — and social 
— order is worth more than any pe- 
cuniary contribution you could make. 
Thought is priceless. 






Two recent publications by faculty 
members are "The Child" by Dr. 
Meyer F. Nimkoff of the Sociol- 
ogy Department and "An Introduction 
to Statistical Analysis" by Dr. C. H. 
Richardson, Professor of Mathematics. 
We have given earlier notices of two 
other works by faculty members which 
are herein more fully reviewed. We 
quote our review with acknowledge- 
ments to the editors from The Buck- 
nell Journal of Education: 



by C. H. Richardson, Ph.D. 

Professor of Mathematics, Bucknell 

New York: Harcourt, Brace and Com- 
pany. 1934. 

It is the aim of this book to present 
the fundamentals of statistical analy- 
sis in such a manner that they can be 
comprehended by students who have 
had but little training in mathematics 
and yet in such a way that they can 
be studied to advantage even by those 
who have had considerable mathe- 
matics. To supplement the mathe- 
matical training of the former group, 
the author has intermittently interrup- 
ted the continuity of the statistical 
procedure by inserting certain sections 
on advanced algebra and analytic ge- 

The book has been developed upon 
a well-tried pedagogical plan. Each 
major topic is introduced with a brief 
.statement of "what it is all about". 
Then follows a brief statement of the 
underlying theory of the topic under 
consideration which leads directly and 
simply to a development of the neces- 
sary formulas and processes. The 
reader is then shown how to use the 
formulas and processes to obtain the 
desired numerical results. Finally, the 
limitations of the formulas and pro- 
cesses and the significance and the 
reliability of the computed results are 
given due emphasis. Thus, a student 
learns why a formula is applied, 
whence it is derived, how it is used, 
and what are its limitations. 

The method of treatment is elemen- 
tary and up-to-date. The graphical 
method has been widely employed and 
the numerous illustrations are very 
detailed. Copious exercises, generally 
based upon actual rather than imagi- 
nary data, abound. Correlation, curve- 
fitting, and the problem of sampling 
receive especial emphasis. 


By H. W. Robbins, Ph.D. 

Chairman of the language group and 
graduate division at Bucknell Uni- 
versity and R. E. Parker, Ph.D., 
University of Tennessee. New 
York: Prentice Hall Co., 1933. 

This college textbook has now been 
adopted by eighteen colleges. It has 
been pronounced by one authority "the 
most outstanding textbook in the field 
of expository writing." It contains 
fifteen chapters of theoretical discus- 
sions; following each are exercises 
and illustrative articles drawn mostly 
from contemporary expository writing 
found in newspapers and magazines. 
It is the first book on the subject in- 
tended exclusively for advanced stu- 
dents, and the elimination of elemen- 
tary material has made it possible for 
the author to include adequate pre- 
sentation of all forms of exposition, 
including report-writing, theses and 
dissertations, which are seldom touch- 
ed upon in regular textbooks. 

By William H. Eyster, Ph.D 

Professor of Botany, Bucknell Uni- 
versity. New York: Ray Long and 
Richard R. Smith, Inc., 1932. 

There are many features of this 
book which raise it above the average 
botany text. While it is neither too 
long nor too technical to be covered 
and understood in a school year, it 
clearly presents the main essentials 
of general botany in such a way as to 
give the student a good understanding 
of the nature and development of 

The book is divided into two parts, 
each of which can be used conveniently 
part begins with a brief history of 
for one semester's work. The first 
botany. Then it presents the general 
biological principles which apply to 
all plants, taking up in logical order 
the structure of plants, metabolism, 
growth and reproduction. The second 
part gives a systematic survey of the 
plant kingdom. 

There are hundreds of clear illus- 
trations to supplement the text, most 
of them being original drawings and 
photographs by the author. The entire 
text is quite readable even to those 
who have no previous biological train- 
ing, and all the technical words are 
clearly defined in a complete but con- 
cise glossary. 


By M. F. Nimkoff, Ph.D. 

Associate Professor of Sociology, 
Bucknell University; Director, In- 
stitute for Family Guidance, Lewis- 
burg, Pa. Philadelphia: J. B. Lippin- 
cott Co., 1934. 

So far as the writer knows, this is 
the first book on child life to be writ- 
ten by a sociologist. The social ob- 
jective of child growth is therefore 
emphasized. Part I deals with the 
child's physical, mental and emotional 
development as it contributes to his 
social adjustment. Part II considers 
the child's various interests, such as 
play, work, art, and religion. A chap- 
ter of special interest for the readers 
of this Journal is the one on "The 
Child and His School Experience". 
While designed primarily as a College 
text, the book is written simply and 
directly, so as to appeal to the general 
reader. This book should be of prac- 
tical value to teachers, parents, and 
other concerned with the guidance of 




To Alumni in Education: 

The department of education is be- 
ginning the collection of information 
for a Bucknell Who's Who in Educa- 
tion. We are revising our followup 
system and attempting to get infor- 
mation on every graduate engaged in 
any type of educational work. We be- 
lieve this institution has as honorable 
a record in the field of education as 
has any in the country. Why not tell 
our friends and the world what our 
graduates are doing in this field. If 
you have not received a communication 
from the department of education 
within the past year this probably 
means that you are not on our list of 
educators. Won't you sit dovioi and 
write a post card to the undersigned 
telling where you are and what you 
are doing. 

The above request applies also to 
three types of persons not always 
listed as educators. They are: 

1. Graduate students in any uni- 
versity looking forward to teaching 
or other educational work. 

2. School directors. 

3. Officers in parent-teacher asso-

ond Street. Later he was in charge of 
the construction of the B.-M. T. sub- 
way in Manhattan from the Battery 
to Herald Square. In 1925, when the 
Municipal System was stai'ted, he had 
charge of the land work in Manhattan 
south of Columbus Circle, including 
the Essex-Houston-Rutgers Street 
line. Later he had charge of the work 
on the Pulton Street link in Brooklyn.

unusual and surprising items of human 
interest" in the Bible, according to re- 
cent news dispatches. He has begun 
a collection of such curious passages 
and references from the Bible. 


We expect to hear more from the 
Class of 1909 now that Mrs. Myrtle 
Walkinshaw Shupe writes us for the 
names and addresses of the members. 
All this is leading to the reunion in 
June when "Walkie" prophesies a wag- 
on ride down Market Street and other 
"high jinx" for the class. Mrs. Shupe 
knows the class as well as the present 
Bucknell. She has two daughters now 
in the student body and is a frequent 
visitor to the campus.

P. C. Campbell, Danville, Pa., Dis- 
trict Manager, for The Philadelphia 
Life Insurance Company, has attained 
a record, which is conceded by men in 
life insurances circles, to be an a- 



chievement which few if any in this 
State have equaled. Mr. Campbell has 
obtained one or more new applications 
for life insurance each week for five 
years or consecutively for two hundred 
and sixty weeks. He leads his entire 
company in this respect with a margin 
of four years over the nearest rival.

of the E. I. du Pont de Nemours Com- 
pany held at Wilmington, Delaware, 
it was announced that the certificate 
of merit for the best booklet produced 
during the year had been awarded

ive specimen of advertising. This is 
the third consecutive year that Mr. 
Coleman has been the recipient of a 
company award. In 1931 and again in 
1932 he received the award of merit 
for the best direct mail advertising 
campaign carried on during these 
years. Very recently one of his adver- 
tisements received honorable mention 
by the National Association of Adver- 
tisers. Mr. Coleman became associated 
with the du Pont Company in March,

Last fall the Bucknell Conference 
on Education added two new sections, 
one for school directors and the other 
for parent-teacher association workers. 

Both were successful and we learned 
the names of several Bucknell people 
we expect a much larger attendance 
engaged in such activities. This fall 
at these meetings and hope that our 
graduates may have a large part in 
the activities. 

Please send that card at once and 
don't forget to state the type of ser- 
vice in which you are engaged. 

Yours for greater service in 
the field of education,

Help Them Take 

The Next Step] 

Within a short time thousands of students will be graduading from high 
schools all over the land. Many of them are planning to go to college. 
Many of this group are faced with the problem of what course to take 
and ^^where shall I go to coliege?^ ^ Their next step is a vital one It 
presents a serious problem. 


"Where shall I go to College?", is a problem that YOU have already solved. YOU JOINED THE 
BUCKNELL FAMILY. Why not help those who are facing this problem to take the right step. 
Tell about your University to outstanding boys and girls who would be benefitted by a course at 


Many who are ready to become college freshmen do not know what their life work is to be. Their 
course in college ought to help them decide that most important question. It should reveal to 
them a variety of fields of human endeavor, and enable them to make a more intelligent choice than 
they could otherwise make. 


Bucknell's Survey Courses — which are attracting wide attention — help the youth find himself. In 
the freshman year, he is given a general survey of all fields, Arts, Sciences, Music, Engineering, 
Commerce and Finance, and Education. Then he selects the field which intei-ests him for his major. 
This process continues through the freshman and sophomore years, known as the lower division, 
during which time every student, irrespective of course, is given a thorough cultural education and 
an insight into the various fields of effort from which he himself may make his choice. 


Bucknell is an outstanding college — nearly one hundred years old — whose alumni have made an 
enviable contribution to humanity in all fields of endeavor. Bucknell is one of only two hundred 
colleges out of one thousand which is accredited by the Association of American Universities. 
You are proud of being a Bucknellian — tell about Bucknell to choice young people.

sixty-five years ago, sends his annual 
check to The Alumni Fund with a 
most interesting personally written 
letter to give his class a 100% record 
on The Alumni Fund for the third 
successive year. Rev. Wells lives in 
Beaufort, S. C, and was a commence- 
ment guest last year at the time of 
the graduation of his nephew, C. Ed- 
mund Wells, '33^

The death of Dr. John Heisley 
Weaver, LL.D., 1924, prominent Phila- 
delphian, occui'red at his home in 
Merion on April 26. Dr. Weaver 
would have been 75 on May 15. Death 
was attributed to heart disease. 

He began his career as a clerk for 
the Pennsylvania Railroad in Wil- 
liamsport and in 1887 entered the coal 
business, founding the present firm of 
which he was head, two years later. 

He was one of the pioneers in the 
development of coal properties in In- 
diana and Cambria counties and was 
chairman of the board of directors of 
the Cambria and Indiana Railroad 
company. He was also president of 
the West Virginia Northern Railroad 

In April, 1921, he was decorated 
with the cross of Knight of the Order 
of the Crown of Italy in recognition 
for his services in expediting the 
movement of coal to the Allies during 
the World War. 

Surviving him are his widow, the 
former Ida Davidson, one daughter, 
Mrs. John Farrell Macklin, and five 
grandchildren: Ida Weaver Macklin, 
John Heisley Weaver Macklin, Robert 
S. Kampmann, Jr., Elizabeth S. Kamp- 
mann and Marion W. Kampmann, the 
latter three the children of Marion 
Weaver Kampmann, deceased. 


The death of Dr. Eli Slifer Walls, 
'03, prominent Pittsburgh physician 
and former Lewisburger occurred sud- 
denly of heart disease at his home on 
March 27, 1934. 

For two years after his graduation 
from college Dr. Walls was a member 
of an engineering staff on the Wabash 
R. R. He graduated from the Medical 
Department, University of Pennsyl- 
vania in 1909 and became an interne 
in West Penn Hospital, Pittsburgh, 
where later he began the practice of 
medicine. During the World War he 
left a lucrative medical practice in 
Pittsburgh to volunteer in the medical 
staff of the United States Army, and 
was stationed at Fort Pike. His abil- 
ity and services were of such high 
merit that he was offered great in- 
ducements to remain in the Army. 
However, he thought it better to begin 
anew private practice and had soon 
built it up to where he was one of the 
most outstanding practitioners in his 
line in the city of Pittsburgh, Making 
a point to keep abreast of the develop- 
ments in his profession, he made sev- 
eral visits to Europe for medical study 
and frequently attended various insti- 
tutions in the United States for study 
and practice. 

Dr. Walls was a member of the vis- 
iting staff of St. Francis Hospital in 
Pittsburgh, and was a member of the 
American Board of Otolarynology, 
American College of Surgeons, Pitts- 
burgh Otolarynology Society, Sigma 
Chi Fraternity and Pittsburgh Athletic 

Dr. Walls is survived by his father, 
one sister, Mrs. Harry E. McCormick, 
of Cornwall, N. Y., and his brother, 
John A. Walls, '98. 

Dr. Walls was the son of William C. 
Walls, '73, and Anna SMfer Walls. His 
grandfather. Col. Eli Slifer for whom 
he was named was State Treasurer of 
Pennsylvania for two terms, and sec- 
retary of the Commonwealth during 
the Civil War. Another grandfather 
was Judge John Walls, also of Lewis- 

The funeral was held in Lewisburg 
on March 31 from the Walls home on 
Third Street with burial in the Lewis- 
burg Cemetery. The pallbearers were: 
Dr. Harry Baughman, Pittsburgh; Dr. 
George Davis, '05, Milton; Mr. J. Vil- 
liard Frampton, '03, Oil City; Mr. 
George G. Gray, Pittsburgh; Dr. H. 
Kitloski, '20, Pittsburgh; Mr. Andrew 
A. Leiser, Jr., '98, Lewisburg; Mr. 
Charles Loveland, '11, Montclair, N. 
J.; Mr. William N. C. Marsh, '03, Lew- 
isburg; Mr. Thorpe Nesbit, Philadel- 
phia; Mr. Wallace Portser, '05, Sun- 
bury; Dr. Harry Thornton, '00, Lewis- 
burg, and Mr. Marshall Wilson, Milton. 


The Bucknell Alumni Club of North- 
'ern New Jersey came into existence 
with a "bang" on the night of April 
20 in Newark when more than two 
hundred alumni and friends banqueted 
and danced at Hotel Douglas. The 
party was most ably directed by Pres- 
ident John S. Cregar, M.D., '27, and a 
hard working committee composed of 
Samuel Bernhaut, Esq., '28, Paul E. 
Fink, '29, and Dr. John Gilmour, '27. 
President Rainey, Alumni Secretary 
Stoughton and Football Coach Mylin 
were the guests and speakers.

The following press release appear- 
ed at the time of the campus dinner of 
trustees and faculty held on April 21 
to mark the opening of The Litera- 
ture Building: 

Lewisburg, Pa., April 21. — At the 
formal opening held here today of 
Bucknell University's new Literature 
Building, President Homer T. Rainey 
announced a 36,000,000 program of 
new buildings and increased endow- 
ment which the trustees of the Uni- 
versity hope will be completed in time 
for the celebration of Bucknell's one 
hundredth anniversary in 1946. One- 
half the funds will be spent for build- 
ings and the other half will be in- 
vested in permanent endowment. 

The New Literature Building, built 
and equipped at a cost of 8200,000 is 
the first step in this development pro- 
gram. Other buildings, which will be 
added from time to time as funds are 
made available, will be a gymnasium, 
library, chapel, student union, science 
hall, social science hall, dormitories, 
and faculty houses. The library will 
be the central unit in this new archi- 
tectural development. Most of the 
units will be built on the plateau be- 
tween the new engineering building 
and the stadium. 

A Centennial Commission has been 
appointed to plan and direct the ef- 
forts to obtain the funds which it is 
hoped the friends of Bucknell will give 
and bequeath in the next twelve years. 
The Steering Committee of the Com- 
mission is headed by the University's 
President of the Board of Trustees, 
Dr. Charles P. Vaughan, Philadelphia 
business man. Other members are 
President Rainey, Judge J. Warren 
Davis, Trenton, N. J., and Arnaud C. 
Marts, New York. Joseph W. Hen- 
derson, Philadelphia and Roy G. 
Bostwick, Pittsburgh have been ap- 
pointed on the Bequest Committee, and 
others will be added. 

"We announce this ambitious finan- 
cial program for Bucknell at this 
time," Dr. Rainey said, "in spite of 
the present general tendency among 
colleges to delay or suppress any de- 
velopment program. ^\e do this after 
full consideration of the probable diffi- 
culties involved, but we have also 
given consideration to the obligation 
which is on us for keepmg the educa- 
tion of our youth fully abreast with 
other developments. We have taken 
counsel of our hopes and convictions 
as to the future instead of taking 
counsel of the fears and pessimism of 
the recent past. 

"We believe that America mai'ches 
confidently on toward 'the more abun- 
dant life' and that long before Buck- 
nell's hundredth anniversary year 
comes in 1946 the friends of the Uni- 
versity will be well able, and we trust 
willing, to give the funds to make this 
development possible. The times ahead 
of us call for greater emphasis on cul- 
tural and spiritual values, and Buck- 
nell looks forward eagerly to the en- 
largement of its service in the thrill- 
ing days ahead." 

A novel feature of the new Litera- 
ture Building opened today is an hex- 
agonal lecture room seating 4.50 per- 
sons and equipped with movies, talkies, 
and radio. This is the room in which 

the freshman class meets in its en- 
tirety for the lecture sessions of Buck- 
nell's new "survey courses." Nearby 
are fifteen offices for teachers that are 
used for personal guidance confer- 
ences, and several small classrooms 
and seminar rooms. 

The building also includes a special 
library for language students. Amid 
comfortable surroundings the students 
will be permitted to read leisurely as 
well as studiously. "With guidance 
carried on beyond the classroom, em- 
phasis will be placed on student learn- 
ing and not teaching," Dr. Rainey said. 

The exterior of the building follows 
the Colonial lines of "Old Main," de- 
stroyed by fire in August, 1932. It is 
made of red pressed brick. 

Almost all the trustees of the Uni- 
versity were present for the opening 
and for a business meeting this after- 
noon and a Trustee-Faculty and Ad- 
ministrative staff dinner tonight. 



Arthur L. Brandon, for the past five 
years director of Tlie Bucknell Uni- 
versity News Service has recently been 
appointed to the newly created post 
of Assistant to the President and Di- 
rector of Public Relations for Buck- 
nell. Mr. Brandon will assume his 
new duties in July. During his direc- 
torship of the News Service he has 
also taught courses in the Commerce 
and Finance Department and been 
coach of debate. He will have charge 
of the promotional work on the six 
million dollar campaign and relieve 
President Rainey of many office de- 


A. G. Stoughton, '24, Alumni Secre- 
tary, has been invited to address the 
Alumni Congress of Washington and 
Jefl'erson College at Washington, Pa. 
on June 8 as a part of the Commence- 
ment program. Mr. Stoughton will 
speak on alumni loyalty and oi'gani- 


Letters from many class represen- 
tatives on The Bucknell Alumni Fund 
are now being mailed to the various 
classes. All of the letter writers are 
emphasizing one hundred per cent co- 
operation by the class before Com- 
mencement. The announced goal of 
The Fund Committee of one thousand 
alumni gifts before Commencement is 
expected to be realized. 

The folder titled "Whys and Re- 
plies" mailed to all alumni by the Com- 
mittee has attracted many gifts. The 
complete exposition of the purposes 
of the fund and the need for alumni 
support has won many contributors to 
the cause. 

The personal letters of class agents 
to their respective groups have fol- 
lowed the mailing of "Whys and Re- 


- More than a score of members of the 
graduating class, 1934, have been a- 
warded Alumni Fund loans to enable 
them to march upon the Commence- 
ment platform on June 11. The loans 
have been handled by the campus com- 
mittee acting for Tlie General Alumni 
Fund Committee and have been award- 
ed upon a basis of merit, need, and 
ability to repay during the ensuing 

The loan plan has been further en- 
dorsed by the graduatir,g class by vote 
to invest one thousand dollars of the 
Class Memorial Fund in The Alumni 
Loan Account. All of the funds will 
be loaned to members of the present 
class and upon repayment during the 
coming year will be available to mem- 
bers of the next senior class. All 
loan funds are handled in this manner 
to make a revolving fund. Many let- 
ters from members of the past three 
classes, 1931, 1932, and 1933, who were 
aided by loans have testified to the 
excellence of the plan. The repay- 
ment record of those who have been 
aided, more than fifty-five alumni, is 
exceptionally high. 


The Bucknell Band is again arrayed 
in Orange and Blue. Modern and tail- 
ored uniforms have been secured 
through alumni cooperation and the 
personal interest of President Edward 
W. Pangbui-n, '15, of The Alumni As- 
sociation. Additional funds are needed 
to completely outfit the fifty men of 
the band for the Fall season. Alumni 
gifts to The Alumni Fund may be 
specifically designated to the Band 
Uniform Fund. Dr. Pangburn plans 
to personally solicit gifts to this ac- 
count from the many alumni who have 
written him during the past several 
seasons. "The Bucknellian", student 
newspaper, was loud in praise of the 
new uniforms when the band appeared 
for the first time this Spring in their 
colorful and attractive suits.

Registration Tops Three Hundred Mark to Break ail Records. Entire Program Successful 

MORE than three hundred alumni who register- 
ed at Alumni Headquarters on Alumni Day, 
June 9, 1934, broke all existing records for 
enrolment and enjoyed one of the finest Commence- 
ments in Bucknell history. The program for the daj' 
was a full and complete one and in circus language 
"Something for Everyone" was on the long list of 

Class reunions featured the day with 1924 carrying 
off all honors for attendance with fifty-five present 
at the tenth anniversary of graduation. 1909, 1914. 
1894, and 1904 all report enjoyable meetings. Sym- 
posiums at the various chapter houses were fairly 
well attended while the Cap and Dagger play dre^v 
a capacity house. 

Baccalaureate Sunday opened with the colorful 
and stately academic procession to The Baptist 
Church for the annual sermon to the graduates by 
the President. Dr. Rainey chose as his theme the 
challenge of today in terms of spiritual and char- 
acter values. The address is published in full on a 
later page. Rain threatened to move the symphony 
concent indoors but lifting clouds and clearing skies 
finally permitted the outdoor concert, enjoyed b},' 
several hundred, following the President's reception. 

The usual capacity congregation heard the ora- 
torio on Sunday evening in the Baptist Church. The 
presentation culminated weeks of intensive work on 

the i^art of all the members of the music department 
faculty and students. Imported soloists shared with 
the choir and instrumentalists the applause and ap- 
probation of the many who enjoyed the great 
Beethoven's "Missa Solemnis". 

Commencement morning brought several hundred 
parents, friends, and relatives of the Class of 1934 
to the outdoor ceremonies in front of Hunt Hall. It 
was the tenth successive outdoor Commencement for 
the University. President Raymond Kent of the 
University of Louisville addressed the graduates on 
"Sides and Angles" of the changing world into 
which they were about to enter. His address is also 
published on a later page. 

The closing event of the season followed the for- 
mal exercises of graduation as the graduates, alumni, 
faculty, and friends gathered for the Corporation 
Dinner in the Dining Hall at Women's College. 
President Rainej' presided and presented the mem- 
bers of the faculty who had introduced the honorary 
degree candidates on the Commencement platform. 
These, in turn, presented informally the six men and 
women honored by Bucknell with advanced degrees. 
All responded briefly in acknowledgment of the 
recognition accorded by the University. With the 
singing of Auld Lang S3-ne another enjoyable Buck- 
nell Commencement program became history. 


MORE than a score of class representatives, 
club officers, and members of The Executive 
Committee were in attendance at the annual 
meeting of The General Alumni Association in the 
Literature Building on Saturday afternoon, June 9, 

The meeting was called to order by President E. 
W. Pangburn, '15, and the roll call and minutes of 
the previous meeting read by the Secretary. 

President Pangburn reported on his work of the 
past year and urged all present to carry the message 
of need for further alumni cooperation in college pro- 
grams to their respective classes and clubs. He also 
paid tribute to the faithful few who have carried 
the burdens of the alumni organization for many 
years and asked for others to join in the work of 
association and clubs. 

President Pangburn then turned the chair over to 
Dr. Mabel Grier Lesher, '01, Vice-President, who in- 
troduced the secretary, A. G. Stoughton, '24. The 
report of the secretar}^ is printed, on another page.

DINNER for fifty, including thirty-six members 
of the class, was served at The Lewisburg 
Club on Alumni Day to the tenth reunion of 
the Class of 1924. The attendance of class members 
broke all records on the campus for reunions and the 
dinner was the largest ever served a reunion group. 
The advance publicity accorded the reunion by class- 
mates Stoughton and Holter from the campus by 
means of a postcard barrage of the members ac- 
counted for the large turnout. 

At the business session following the luncheon, 
Mr. H. W. Holter was elected Class President and 
A. G. Stoughton, Class Secretary. The election fol- 
lowed established Bucknell practice with the nomi- 
nation of one candidate and the immediate closing 
of nominations. The election diiifered from old prac- 
tices in that there were no fraternity meetings called 
to pass on the candidates. The new officers have 
only one campaign plank — a bigger and better re- 
union in 1939. 

Letters were read from a score or more of absent 
members and pictures of several class babies were 
exhibited around the table. The class roster was 
combed for new addresses and information. Presi- 
dent Holter in his acceptance speech reported on 
the operation of the 1924 fiction shelf endowed by the 
class in the Carnegie Library and urged the visitors 
to inspect the books, despite the fact that he had not 
seen them in a year or more. Secretary Stoughton 
called attention to the Literature Building Head- 
quarters of his department and extended the glad 
hand of fellowship to all who would inspect the new 
campus building. Both speakers were rudely inter- 
rupted on numerous occasions as various insurance 
salesmen sought the floor through the intervention 
of several of the class jesters. 

i\Iore politics came onto the floor of the conven- 
tion as Elliott S. Hopler was unanimously elected 

Class Representative on The Alumni Council and 
Malcolm Mussina elected Alumni Fund Representa- 
tive or Class Agent. 

President Holter in his inaugural address urged 
the class to encourage likely youngsters to investi- 
gate the possibilities of Bucknell as an Alma Mater 
and promised the full cooperation of his eminence 
as Registrar and classmate in enroling '24 legacies 
and adoptions in future classes. 

The meeting broke up with the entrance of sev- 
eral late comers who missed the luncheon. More 
reunion, with handshaking all around again and 
head scratching in attempts to remember maiden 
names, and the day was called a great success. 

1909 Reunion 

By "Walkie" 

THE twenty-fifth reunion started with a guess 
as to who was who, as those present came 
straggling in, just as we did over twenty-five 
years ago, only we had wives, or husbands, or fam- 
ilies, excepting Charles Mallery the single-lawyer- 
politician. The old grads were the guests of John 
T. Shirley. He represents our class by being a mem- 
ber of the Board of Trustees. Rev. Earl Guyer is a 
Baptist Minister and oiifered thanks. And don't for- 
get that Guy Payne's basket has become an Inn on 
the Quadrangle where we ate to our fill. The waiter 
was Guyer's son, and the waitresses were "Walkie's" 
girls, Virginia, '34 and Charlotte, '36. This is the 
roll taken as we were seated : Earl Guyer, Hughes- 
ville. Pa. ; Charles R. Mallery, Altoona', Pa. ; Heber 
W. Youngken, Boston, Mass. ; Charles O. Long, 
Logansport, Ind. ; Charles Elson, Kane, Pa. ; John 
B. Van Why, '37; Vallie F. Owens (Mrs. A. W.), 
(Illinois, '19); Albert Waffle Owens (Ph.D., lUi- 


nois, 'IS), Belmont, Mass.; Mabel Slout Weeter,

perd ; Norman Lepperd ; Ruth Lepperd ; Frank E. 
Shupe; D. Ralston W'alkinshaw Shupe, Saltsburg, 
Pa. ; Mrs. J. W. Portser, Chicago, 111. ; Myrtle W'alk- 
inshaw Shupe. 

No program was arranged. We visited while 
eating. At 4:10, the '09ers again assembled in the 
Class Room in the new Literature Building. Every 
seat was filled, — the children having to "stay out". 
The names as received from the Alumni Office were 
checked, then each one present gave an account of 
themselves for the past twenty-five years. This 
proved very interesting. After reading a communi- 
cation from the Alumni Secretary, A. G. Stoughton, 
the following officers were elected for a period of 
five years : 

President — Charles O. Long 

Vice-President — Earl Guj-er 

Secretar3--Treasurer — Myrtle Walkinshaw Shupe 

Alumni Council Representative — Newton C. 

Alumni Fund Representative — Newton C. Fetter 

Those '09ers on the campus who did not attend 
the luncheon, or business meeting were Stanle}^ 
Rolfe, Wilmer C. Johnson and Rev. Charles S. 
Roush, and each had a graduate in the 1934 class, 
known as Doris Rolfe, Eleanor Johnson and Charles 
S. Roush, Jr. 

'■\\'altle" Owens had a double interest in this 
Commencement due to his mother receiving her de- 

Jas. K. Pettite, '19, Miss Eliza J. Martin, '00, Mrs. 
Margaret Kane Pettite, '84, Mrs. Jas. K. Pettite 

Younssters of '84 Return 

Brothers Owen and 3.IiIton Shreve of Erie were 
the representatives of their fifty year class of 1884 
on the campus for Commencement. The passing of 
time has dealt gently with these gentlemen who 
knew The University at Lewisburg before it became 
Bucknell. Dr. Owen, tall and courtly in manner and 
speech, is a physician. Honorable jNIilton W. is a 
lawyer and former congressman, grown stouter with 
the years and somewhat more reserved than his 
brother. Both were interested visitors at Alumni 
Headquarters in the Literature Building and guests 
of The University during Commencement. 

]\Irs. Margaret Kane Pettite of New York, i\Irs. 
Elizabeth Weaver Mason of ^^"iIliamsport, and Miss 
Carrie AL Purdy of Sunbury were the fifty year 
daughters of the Institute who attended the Alum- 
nae Luncheon to represent their class. They were 
likewise invited quests of the L'niversitv. 

"Doc" Leiser wanted to get up the Hill but has 
been incapacitated for the past three years by ill 
health. Several '09ers visited him at his home on 
Fourth Street. 

Heber W". Youngken received the degree of Sc.D. 
and Charles S. Roush received the degree of D.D. 
at the exercises on IMonday. 

Virginia Shupe, "\A'alkie's" daughter, received the 
award for e.xcellency in Music, known as the Avir- 
agnet Prize. 

Your reporter was on the campus for ten days so 
that I could give a report that I missed nothing. 

We have five Ph.D.'s : 

Present — Albert \A'. Owens, University of Illi- 
nois ; Heber Youngken, University of Pennsylvania ; 
Charles Elson, Columbia ; Charles Fries, Albert Pof- 

P. S. — x\ny snapshots taken at Commencement of 
classmates should be sent to the secretary for in- 
clusion in the next class letter. 

Judge Lesher Entertains 1904 

Luncheon at the home of Union County's jurist. 
The Honorable Curtis C. Lesher was the order of 
the day for the Class of 1904. Classmates Lesher 
and R. \A ". Thom.pson were the reception committee 
in invitation and report a small but enthusiastic 
crowd of reuners. Fifteen members of the class were 
present along with some nine other members of fam- 
ilies. Letters from absentees were read and class 
lists checked to bring to mind the entire class roster - 
as it Avas at graduation thirty years ago. 

Judge Lesher was re-elected Class Treasurer in- 
asmuch as he could not remember ever having pre- 
viously .submitted an audited report. R. W. Thomp- 
son was acclaimed Class President and Miss Eliza- 
beth Reed of Sunbury elected secretary. All three 
officers were instructed by the class to begin pre- 
paration for the 1939 reunion at once.

The 1914 Reunion 

By Cline Lowther 

TWENTY members of the Class of 1914 return- 
ed for the Iwentieth Reunion. The luncheon 
was held at the College Inn followed by the 
usual "gab-fest" and everything was discussed from 
the Proc Scrap on top of the observatory in the 
Freshman year to the unpleasant ducking in the 
river given us by the Class of 1915. As each event 
v\-as brought up "Crissy" Criswell would always 
manage to recall a more startling event in our his- 
tory. After most of the problems of the day had been 
settled we adjourned to our room at Alumni Head- 
quarters in the Literature Building. 

At this meeting, which was presided over by our 
Senior President Jesse E. Riley of Parsons, \V. Va. 
a very interesting report was given by Dora Hamler 
Weaver on the activities of the girls of the Class. 
Several letters were read from them which showed 
a wide range of activities and honors which had 
come to them. Letters and telegrams of greetings 
were read from several of the boys scattered 
throughout the Lnited States and several foreign 

At the business session C. W^alter Lotte of Pater- 
son, N. J. was elected to represent 1914 on the Alum- 
ni Council and Cline Lowther of New York City 
as the Class Agent. Both terms were for five years 
or until the next meeting of the class at their Twen- 
ty-fifth reunion in 1939. A permanent class memo- 
rial was discussed and President Riley appointed a 
committee composed of Joshua R. Golightly of 
Springfield, N. J. and the two class representatives 
named above to formulate plans and the form of the 
memorial. This will be presented to the members 
of the class in the near future. Cheney K. Boyer 
captured first prize in traveling the greatest distance 
in returning from his home in Appleton, ^^"isconsin. 
Those returning for the reunion were : Dora Ham- 
ler Weaver, Helen G. Stout, Dorothea Jones Shaffer, 
Mary A. Kunkel, Ruth Hoffa Rice, Fred O. Schnure, 
Jesse E. Riley, John W. Rice, W. Cline Lowther, 
W. S. Reitz, C. Walter Lotte, Joshua R. Golightly, 
Elmer E. Fairchild, William H. Eyster. John R. 
Criswell, Freedman H. Cathrall, Leland P. Laning, 
Cheney K. Boyer, Walter T. Africa, Stephen K. 


Garner Entertains 94 

R. ALBERT R. GARNER of Norristown en- 
tertained his 1894 class at luncheon at The 
Lewisburg Inn on Alumni Day in celebration 
of the fortieth anniversary of graduation. Alore than 
a score of classmates and families were present. Dr. 
Garner is president of the class. Rev. George H. 
Waid of Marshall, Michigan, and daughter travelled 
the longest distance to be in attendance.

First Picnic 

On May 12 the first picnic meeting was held. Mrs. 
Winfield S. Oberrender arranged to have this party 
on the estate of Mr. Charles H. Grakelow and we 
had a very delightful outing. Members brought hus- 
bands and friends which added interest and we have 
been asked to repeat this party next year. Mr. and 
j\Irs. Oberrender and Mr. Grakelow were given a 
standing vote of thanks for their kindness. The log 
cabin had a large fireplace where a cheerful fire 
burned and our host was most thoughtful and hos- 

Word has been received of the death of Mrs.

Rev. Roush and Dr. Youngken having graduated 
here in the class of 1909. Only Saturday they were 
together in celebrating with their class its silver 
anniversary reunion. 

The degrees were conferred for the University by 
President Homer P. Rainey following the awarding

j\lrs. Jeannette Wafl:"le Owens, wife of Professor 
William Gundy Owens, '80, is now on the alumni 
roster of Bucknell with the class numerals 1934 after 
her name. She received the earned degree of Bach- 
elor of Arts with her class. 

Jeannette Wafl:"le graduated from the High School 
at New Brunswick, N. J., in 1879 and after her mar- 
riage to Professor Owens took special courses at 

Dr. C. S. Roush 

the Bucknell Institute. Four years ago, after a busy 
social and family life, she decided to enter college 
in a regular course in search of a degree. On Com- 
mencement day, June 11, 1934, she completed the 
four years of required work and was awarded her

and Mr. Edward Rhein, bass. 


Captain Adolph Langsner, Chicago engineer, and 
alumnus of both Northwestern and Bucknell,' was 
recently cited in the Northwestern Alumni News as 
holding the perfect contribution record to the North- 
western Foundation Fund. Captain Langsner has 
contributed twice each year to this fund since its 
inception. Bucknell conferred upon Captain Langs- 
ner the degree of :\Iechanical Engineer in 1931. 
Since that time he has been an annual contributor 
to the Buckell Alumni Fund, and an active mem'ber 
of the Bucknell Alumni Club of Chicaeo.

Four Year Total Reaches $1 8,546.68— Sixty-Three Loans Made in Three Years 

GIFTS from more than three hundred alumni 
to a total of more than twenty-five hundred 
dollars added to class gifts of an almost equal 
amount brought the 1933-34 total of monies received 
by The Bucknell Alumni Fund to $5,214.05 as the 
fiscal 3'^ear ended on June 30, 1934. 

The treasurer's report listing all monies received 
since 1930 by the Trust Fund (B) from which loans 
to seniors are made annually, shows total assets in 
excess of seven thousand dollars. 

The current account (A), used for expenses and 
operating costs lists only partial receipts for the 
year. The balance received during the year just 
closed is contained in the two class items under 1933 
and 1934 and one figure of $258.00 listed as a part 
of general receipts. These items have all been spe- 


cifically designated gifts and are segregated in the 
Trust Fund Account to be used solely for loan pur- 

Since the inception of the Fund in 1930 a total 
amount of $18,546.68 has been contributed. Over 
this four year period of business depression the re- 
sults in final review are exceptional. 

The annual report of the secretary to the Com- 
mencement meeting of The General Alumni Asso- 
ciation called attention to the fine work of class 
agents and officers in the annual appeal for contri- 

Twenty-eight members of the 1934 class were 
enabled to graduate through loans from The Alum- 
ni Fund. This number brings the total of loans made 
during the past three years to sixty-three.

Baccalaureate Address to Class of 1934 by President Rainey 

WE are assembled today in the 
Baccalaureate Service of an in- 
stitution that was founded to 
perpetuate a particular set of educa- 
tional values. This University was 
begun eighty-eight years ago in the 
basement of the local Baptist Church 
by a group of sincere and earnest 
Christians who desired to have an in- 
stitution in which the highest ideals of 
personal and social character might be 
taught. For nearly nine-tenths of a 
century it has been attempting to pro- 
vide instruction in the arts of good 
living with increasing effectiveness. It 
has met every test that has been made 
upon it. In its early youth it exper- 
ienced with the rest of the nation the 
tragedy of the Civil War. The Uni- 
versity had great issues to face in 
those days. It has survived success- 
fully at least four major economic de- 
pressions, and in recent years it has 
experienced the disillusioning after- 
math of the World War. It is still in 
the throes of the greatest economic 
collapse of modern times. 


It seems quite pertinent and appro- 
priate, therefore, for us to consider 
at this time some of the basic prin- 
ciples upon which this institution 
rests, and to ask ourselves quite frank- 
ly how these principles shall be inter- 
preted in the light of contemporary 
issues and demands. 

I have attended two large confer- 
ences in recent months. Last January 
at the meeting of the Association of 
American Colleges in St. Louis the 
general theme of the Convention was 
The Search of Values. At its recent 
meeting in Rochester only a few days 
ago the theme of the Northern Bap- 
tist Convention was For Such a Time 
as This. I have chosen to combine 
those two themes for my subject to- 
day, and to have you consider with me 
The Search for Values for Such A 
Time As This. 

Those of us in educational work are 
accustomed to having many and pro- 
found discussions on the meaning and 
purposes of education. Education is 
such an intimately personal and so 
complex an experience that any gen- 
eralization about it is likely to be en- 
tirely inadequate. Nevertheless, the 
more I study to fathom its meaning 
and to state its objective the more I 
become impressed with the idea that 
the primary concern of all education 
above the rudiments and tool subjects 
is the search for values: the quest for 
things that make a difference. To my 
mind, an educated person must be able 
to do something — to express himself 
in some useful and worthwhile art or 
skill; but he must be more than that. 
He must be able to know the signifi- 
cance of what he does, and to deter- 
mine for himself whether or not what 
he is doing it worth doing. He must 
have a set of values. He must be one 
who cannot and will not do certain 
things. In the words of another, "he 
has learned what to prefer, for he has 

lived in the presence of things that are 
preferable — he has learned enough 
about human life on this planet to see 
his behavior in the light of a body of 
experience and the relation of his ac- 
tions to situations as a whole . . . 
Education has to do with insight, with 
valuing, with understanding, with the 
development of the power of discrim- 
ination, the ability to make choice 
amongst the possibilities of experience 
and to think and act in ways that dis- 
tinguish men from animals and higher 
men from lower." 


It should be noted that true educa- 
tion makes distinctions among men. 
Our theories of democracy and demo- 
cratic educational practices often 
cause us to lose sight of this funda- 
mental truth. It is of the very nature 
of democracy to ignore the cultural 
differences among men, and the most 
fundamental weakness of our demo- 
cratic school system is its tendency to 
treat all children as if they were pos- 
sessed of the same mental and spir- 
itual endowments, and to attempt to 
pour them in the same mold. Instead 
of leveling out differences among peo- 
ple genuine education intensifies them. 
Mr. Everett Dean Martin emphasizes 
thi,= fact in these words: "The at- 
tempt", he says, "to place everyone on 
the same mediocre plane, even though 
it be a level considerably above the 
lowest, is not education; it is a kirjd of 
social work. Education means finding 
one's own level. Like all progress it is 
qualitative and differentiating. Just as 
organic evolution is a process which 
can be measured only in the extent of 
the differences it has made between 
higher and more complex organisms 
and lower ones, so with education. It 
brings out distinctions of human 
worth, places people on the rounds of 
a ladder, the graduations of which are 
discernible in the kinds of interests 
they have, in the quality of their 
choices, the perplexities they wrestle 
with and overcome, the tasks and is- 
sues they set themselves." 


It is at this point that the objec- 
tives of education and those of religion 
merge into the same great purpose, 
for did Christ not say that "The King- 
dom of Heaven is like unto a merchant 
man seeking goodly pearls: who, when 
he had found one pearl of great price, 
went and sold all that he had, and 
bought it?" Religion, too, is a search 
for values, and by this token the quest 
for education and for religion end in 
the same place. It is for this reason 
that we believe that education, in- 
spired by religious ideals and pursued 
under religious influences, is the high- 
est type of education possible. We are 
accustomed to speak of secular educa- 
tion and of Christian education. Per- 
haps, there is a difference, but this 
difference should not exist, and all 
efforts to separate education into such 
classifications cannot but result in a 

partial and incomplete process. All 
genuine education must eventuate in 
the search for values that are eternal; 
for values that abide amid all the 
varying vicissitudes of life; for ulti- 
mate values whose reality is God. 

I have spoken of the search for 
values as the common goal of educa- 
tion and religion. What may we say 
of the times in which we live? Some 
adequate understanding of the factors 
of contemporary life is essential before 
we shall be able to answer the funda- 
mental inquiry of "What are the 
values for such a time as this?" Time 
will not permit a lengthy excursion 
into the characteristics of the life of 
our times. I desire, however, to call to 
your attention two major facts about 
our particular period. 

It is, first of all, certainly an age 
of disintegration. Our economic sys- 
tem of individualism and laissez-faire 
is certainly disintegrating in a large 
area of the world, and there can be no 
doubt but that its successful continu- 
ance in our own country is seriously 


The institutions of democratic gov- 
ernment have disintegrated in one 
country after another in the last fif- 
teen years until the forms remain only 
in three great world powers — Eng- 
land, France, and the United States, 
and there are many honest doubts 
about the success of democracy in 
these countries in the years imme- 
diately ahead. These governments are 
all facing the same challenging ques- 
tion: "Whether a national authority 
dependent upon popular suffrage and 
restricted by a liberal constitution can 
adequately plan and organize a com- 
munity's economic life — whether it 
is possible under free institutions to 
develop the type of state which seems 
to be required to meet the demands 
of a new and vastly changed world 


This disintegration of our economic 
and governmental structures is serious 
enough, but there is another area of 
our lives where the results of disinte- 
gration are infinitely more serious. It 
is in the realms of individual character 
and public morality. In August, 1933 
Mr. James Truslow Adams wrote a 
significant article in Harper's Maga- 
zine calling our attention to the "cri- 
sis in character" that the nation is 
experiencing. He says: "There is noth- 
ing new about the demoralizing effects 
of both wars and boom times. Every 
war is succeeded by a shoddy decade, 
and under the strain of speculative 
oi'gies there are always weaklings who 
go under morally. The conditions 
among our people in the last few years, 
however, have been somewhat different 
and more sinister. Symptoms of this 
may be found in the absence of trusted 
leaders, in the lack of courage on the 
part of the people at large, and in the 
more universal corruption of all classes 
in either coarse or subtle form." He 



says further that "in these last three 
years and more of financial chaos there 
has not been a banker whose entire 
weight has been equal to the late Mr. 
Morgan's little finger. The old man 
unquestionably had his faults, but 
there was a driving power about him, 
a granite-like character, a knowledge 
and strength, a willingness to assume 
supreme responsibility, which not only 
inspired but compelled confidence. Not 
one of the bankers who might have 
been expected to lead in the last three 
years has succeeded in doing so." 

In one of the now famous hearings 
in Washington in the Harriman Bank 
case, Mr. John W. Pole, Comptroller 
of the CuiTency under President 
Hoover, informed the Committee under 
oath that "defalcations are very com- 
mon in the Comptroller's office." "It 
is a routine matter," he said. "Do you 
mean to say!" exclaimed Senator Rob- 
inson of Indiana, "that defalcations by 
bank presidents are common?" "Yes," 
the witness replied. "Well," said Sena- 
tor Robinson, "if defalcations by bank 
presidents are common in the Comp- 
troller's Office it is no wonder, is it, 
that the people have no confidence in 
banks?" Mr. Adams continues in his 
article to show that the same lack of 
character exists not only in bank pres- 
idents but throughout our entire politi- 
cal life. He lays the same charge be- 
fore the press of the nation. He says 
that "we have come to expect that a 
large part of the daily press will de- 
liberately distort news." Furthermore, 
he says that "moral issues appear to 
have ceased to make the slightest ap- 
peal to the ordinary citizen." 

This disintegration of personal and 
social morality, is, to me, the most 
ominous factor in contemporary so- 
ciety. No economic system can func- 
tion successfully unless it is based 
upon the substantial virtues of per- 
sonal and social integrity. No form 
of government, and most of all a de- 
mocracy, can survive without char- 
acter in its citizenry. There can be no 
regeneration of the national character 
until the individuals which make up 
our society are regenerated, and this 
regeneration cannot come as a mass 
movement. It must come one by one. 


Not only is this an age of disinte- 
gration: it is an age of confusion. The 
ancient landmarks in virtually every 
area of life have been removed, and 
the mass of the people are groping 
without guidance. There is abundant 
evidence that this is true. Consider 
some of our perplexities. We are de- 
stroying wheat and hogs in order that 
we may have more food. We are plow- 
ing under cotton in order that we may 
have moi-e clothes. We are told to 
spend our money that we may have 
more wealth. We are perparing for 
war in order that we may have more 
peace. We are told that we must make 
intoxicating liquors more easily avail- 
able in order that the amount of drink- 
ing may be reduced. In the face of 
such paradoxical doctrines is it any 
wonder that the minds of men are con- 
fused? Someone has described our 
situation by saying that we have been 
led into a dark hole and have blown 
out the lights. The basic situation is 
that there does not exist in our cul- 
tural pattern those concepts and ideals 

which are capable of giving guidance 
and direction to a confused generation 
which faces the disintegration of an 
economic and social system and the 
task of building new ones. We are 
truly standing between two eras — at 
the end of one in which most of the 
standards that men had followed are 
gone; and waiting for another to be 
born. The new era cannot be born 
until our society discovers a new set 
of values — a new social impulse upon 
which we can go forward. We need an 
acceptable and challenging philosophy 
of life upon which we can expend our 
loyalty and enthusiasm. We need to 
find something in which we can believe 
with all our minds and hearts. We 
need an economic philosophy that will 
satisfy our demands for social justice 
and will be in harmony with our abil- 
ity to produce such an abundance of 
every human need. We need a political 
philosophy that will recognize the 
highest social ideals as its goal, and 
will provide us a working program 
which will give us a reasonable as- 
surance that these ideals will be re- 
alized. We need a philosophy of God 
and human destiny that will give 
meaning and significance to life—that 
will provide a motive for great living 
and a criterion by which all our lives 
may be judged. We need something 
superior to live for. Or better still, 
we need something for which we would 
be willing to die, for is there not a 
large measure of sacrifice in all noble 
living ? Woodrow Wilson, speaking 
of General Robert E. Lee, said: "We 
reserve the word 'noble' carefully for 
those whose greatness is not spent in 
their own interest. A man must have 
a margin of energy which he does not 
spend upon himself in order to win 
this title of nobility. He is noble in 
our popular conception only when he 
goes outside the narrow circle of self- 
interest, and begin to spend himself 
in the interest of mankind." This 
principle which is so necessary for 
success in our individual lives is also 
true for any group or society. It is 
certainly ti'ue in an institution such 
as ours. The happiest faculty and stu- 
dent body are those which are working 
unselfishly for the achievement of a 
worthy ideal. Without worthy and 
challenging ideals any group or so- 
ciety will soon disintegrate. 


Our task, therefore, is quite clear. 
We must find a set of values for such 
a time as this. I have said that this 
task is the primary function of all 
genuine education. I have also said 
that our time is characterized by dis- 
integration and confusion. Our prob- 
lem now is to find the values that will 
lead us out of confusion and uncer- 
tainty into an integrated and purpose- 
ful society. I would not be so bold as 
to believe that I could give a complete 
answer to this problem, but to any 
thinking and earnest person certain 
truths suggest themselves. 

My thesis is threefold.. I maintain, 
in the first place, that our basic need 
is for a new emphasis upon character 
and personal integrity, and that these 
values should be the pi-imary objective 
of one's education. It may be neces- 
sary to define what is meant by char- 
acter. After all it is a quality of life 
that defies definition, but we may ap- 

proximate it. It is a spiritual re- 
sultant of life that is lived according to 
high purposes and ideals. Character 
as a moral force that accumulates 
around a personality as a result of 
infinite acts of daily experience that 
are motivated by a spirit of truth and 
goodness. It is the result of conduct 
guided by a set of high values. It is 
a reserved moral force that is always 
greater than any particular act or 
piece of conduct. It was said of Lord 
Chatham by those who heai-d him that 
they always felt that there was some- 
thing finer in the man than anything 
which he said. Ralph Waldo Emerson 
says of Washington "that we cannot 
find the smallest part of the weight of 
W^ashington in the narrative of his ex- 


It is this quality of life that is so 
urgently needed in the current crisis. 
Within the last year Dr. James H. 
Breasted, eminent archaeologist of the 
University of Chicago, has published 
a significant book called The Dawn of 
Conscience. In this book he has "dis- 
closed the genesis of the most tre- 
mendous transformation in the history 
of the universe — the process by which 
man has passed from the conquest of 
his material world to the amazing dis- 
covery of inner values, the victory 
over self and the vision of social re- 
sponsibility." The account of this evo- 
lution as traced by Dr. Breasted is a 
thrilling story. He points out that in 
point of time this age of character 
which the rise of conscience has pro- 
duced is only in its beginning and 
early stages, and that the great a- 
chievements in the realm of inner 
values are in the future. It is Dr, 
Breasted's thesis that "the most press- 
ing need of America at the present 
critical juncture is not more mechani- 
zation but more character." I quote 
him further on the value of character 
and moral ideals: 

"The most fundamentally important 
thing in the developing life of man has 
been the rise of ideals of conduct and 
the emergence of character, a trans- 
formation of human life which can be 
historically demonstrated to have be- 
gun but yesterday. At a time when 
the younger generation is throwing 
inherited morals into the discard, it 
would seem to be worthwhile to re- 
appraise these ancient values which 
are being so light-heartedly abandon- 
ed. To gain any adequate conception 
of the value of ideals of conduct to 
the life of man we must endeavor to 
disclose the process by which men first 
gained discernment of character and 
appreciation of its value. As we look 
back into human beginnings we dis- 
cover at once that man began as an 
unmoral savage. How did it come 
about that he ever gained any moral 
dictates or eventually submitted to 
the moral mandate when once it had 
arisen ? How did a world totally with- 
out any vision of character rise to so- 
cial idealism and learn to listen with 
reverence to voices within? Over 
against the visible and tangible ad- 
vantages of material conquests how 
did it eventually happen that there 
arose the first generation of men with 
comprehension of unseen inner values? 
Why should not the young man or wo- 
man of today reject as outworn the in- 

for JUNE- JULY, 1934 


herited moral standards of the past, 
of whose origin neither of them has 
any knowledge? 


My next thought is that this high 
quality of moral idealism must be pre- 
served and carried over into every 
phase of our social, economic, and po- 
litical life. Any social philosophy 
which ignores these moral ideals and 
sets up man's original nature as a 
basis for conduct is running counter 
to the accumulated experience of the 
race. Romantic love between the sexes, 
monogamous mai-riage, and the home 
are all the result of long centuries of 
the evolution of moral ideals, and the 
attempt to substitute any other set of 
values as a basis for social relations 
will destroy, in a brief period, values 
that have required centuries to a- 
chieve. In referring to this set of 
values Mr. Breasted says: "There is 
one supreme human relationship, that 
which has created the home and made 
the family fireside the source out of 
which man's highest qualities have 
grown up to transform the world. As 
historical fact, it is to family life that 
we owe the greatest debt which the 
mind of man can conceive. The echoes 
of our own past from immemorial ages 
bid us unmistakably to venerate, to 
cherish, and to preserve a relationship 
to which the life of man owes his su- 
preme gift." Over against man's sel- 
fishness and lust and deep-seated pas- 
sion for power we must seek to es- 
tablish the new ideals of self-forget- 
fulness, self-restraint, and the desire 
to serve. Furthermore, any economic 
philosophy which exalts the unmoral 
idea of self-interest as the basis for 
our entire economic life is certain to 
set individuals and groups and nations 
at war with each other in a series of 
endless conflicts. And "Any political 
philosophy," says Mr. Reinhold Nie- 
buhr, "which assumes that natural im- 
pulses, that is, greed, the will-to-power 
and other forms of self-assertion, can 
never be completely controlled or sub- 
limated by reason, is under the neces- 
sity of countenancing political policies 
which attempt the control of nature in 
human history by setting the forces 
of nature against the impulses of na- 
ture. If coercion, self-assertion and 
conflict are regarded as permissible 
and necessary instruments of social 
redemption, how are perpetual con- 
flict and perennial tyranny to be avoid- 
ed? What is to prevent the instru- 
ments of today's redemption from be- 
coming the chain of tomorrow's en- 
slavement? A too consistent political 
realism would seem to consign society 
to perpetual warfare. If social cohe- 
sion is impossible without coercion, 
and coercion is impossible without the 
creation of social injustice, and the 
destruction of injustice is impossible 
without the use of further coercion, 
are we not in an endless cycle of social 
conflict ? If self-interest cannot be 
checked without the assertion of con- 
flicting self-interests how are the 
counter-claims to be prevented from 
becoming inordinate ? And if power is 
needed to destroy power, how is this 
new power to be made ethical ? If the 
mistrust of political realism in the 
potency of rational and moral factors 
in society is carried far enough, an 
uneasy balance of power would seem 

to become the highest goal to which 
society could aspire. If such an un- 
easy equilibrium of conflicting social 
forces should result in a tentative so- 
cial peace or armistice it would be 
fairly certain that some fortuitous dis- 
location of the proportions of power 
would ultimately destroy it. Even if 
such dislocations should not take place, 
it would probably be destroyed in the 
long run by the social animosities 
which a balance of power creates and 

The utter failure in recent decades 
to solve our social, economic, and po- 
litical problems by resort to a sort of 
primitive realism should lead us to the 
necessity for giving heed to the claims 
of the moral idealist. Homes cannot 
be preserved without the cement of an 
idealistic love. The most hardened of 
our economic realists are frank to ad- 
mit that financial institutions rest pri- 
marily upon the spiritual qualities of 
confidence, faith, and goodwill, and 
surely no democracy can exist that 
does not rest upon intelligence, honor, 
integrity, and a sense of moral re- 
sponsibility among its citizenry. 


My final thought is that if we are 
going to stop the process of disinte- 
gration which is now robbing us of so 
many spiritual values we must estab- 
lish in our consciousness an emotional 
focal point around which we can inte- 
grate our individual and collective 
lives. Every stable society in the past 
has had such a focal point of one kind 
or another. Sometimes it has been a 
church; sometimes it has been a fam- 
ily; at other times it has been an in- 
dividual; and at other times it has 
been a great ideal. Churches, families, 
and individuals may have been suffi- 
cient to stabilize small groups and na- 
tions, but nothing short of a world 
ideal to which all the peoples of the 
world can unite in one supreme loyalty 
will suffice for a world society. Is 
there such an ideal to which all the 
peoples of the world will respond ? 
There is much skepticism on this point 
abroad in the world today. The spirit 
of intense nationalism which has been 
sweeping the world in the last three 
years has done much to rob us of the 
possibility of the realization of unity. 
Nevertheless, it is an ideal that must 
prevail if the values of civilization and 
humanity are to be conserved. How 
utterly silly and futile are strifes be- 
tween men and nations! What a con- 
fusion of values when we allow our- 
selves to be drawn into a war that is 
so destructive of all that is worth- 
while. I want to read into the record 
today a comparison of values con- 
sumed in the last war. These facts 
were read into the Congressional Rec- 
ord sometime ago. 


"According to the best statistics ob- 
tainable the World War cost 30,000,000 
lives and 8400,000,000,000 in property. 

"In order to give some idea of what 
this means just let me illustrate it in 
the following: 

"With that amount we could have 
built a §2,500 house and furnished this 
house with 81,000 worth of furniture, 
and placed it on 5 acres of land worth 

$100 an acre and given all this to each 
and every family in the United States, 
Canada, Australia, England, Wales, 
Ireland, Scotland, France, Belgium, 
Germany and Russia. 

"After doing this there would have 
been enough money left to give each 
city of 20,000 inhabitants and over in 
all the countries named a 85,000,00 li- 
brary and a $10,000,000 university. 

"And then out of the balance we 
could have still sufficient money to set 
aside a sum at 5 per cent interest 
which would pay for all times to come 
a $1,000 yearly salary each for an 
army of 125,000 teachers, and in addi- 
tion to this pay the same salary to 
each of an army of 125,000 nurses. 

"And after having done all this, we 
could still have enough left out of our 
four hundred billions to buy up all of 
France and Belgium, and everything 
of value that Prance and Belgium pos- 
sess; that is, every French and Bel- 
gium farm, home, factory, church, rail- 
road, street car — in fact, everything 
of value in those two countries in 1914. 

"For it must be remembered that the 
total valuation of France in 1914, ac- 
cording to the French oflScial figures, 
was §62,000,000,000. The total of Bel- 
gium according to Belgian official fig- 
ures, v/as in the neighborhood of $12,- 
000,000,000. This means a total valu- 
ation of the two countries in 1914 of 
less than f75,000,000,000. 

"In other words, the price 'which the 
leaders and statesmen of the Entente, 
including the satesmen of the "United 
States, made the people of the world 
pay for the victory over Germany, 
was equal to the value of five countries 
like France plus five countries like 

Are such facts as these not enough 
to bring us to our knees in humble 
confession and repentance, and are 
they not sufficient motive for our alle- 
giance to an ideal of human brother- 
hood and peace ? Is there not enough 
concern in our hearts for the spiritual 
destiny of our common humanity to 
draw all the peoples of the world to- 
gether into one great ideal that all 
men shall be free and that all shall be 
supplied with the essentials of life — 
that they shall be freed of the grim 
spectre of poverty and want, and that 
they may enjoy a large measure of the 
good life? Is this not "the pearl of 
great price" for such a time as this?" 

This is my message and my chal- 
lenge to you graduates of Bucknell. 
The true meaning of your education is 
a search for the eternal values. The 
age in which you are called to service 
is characterized by bewilderment and 
confusion of values, and by a disinte- 
gration of our cherished institutions. 
You should enter upon your service 
with pure motives and high ideals, and 
do not be deceived into believing that 
idealism is dead and has no place in 
our individual happiness or in the af- 
fairs of our social, economic, and po- 
litical life. Furthermore, you should 
carry with you a character that is un- 
impeachable and a courage and a faith 
that will cause you to sell all that you 
have in order to maintain it amid all 
the storms that may be hurled against 
you. For what shall it profit you if 
you gain the whole woi-ld and lose your 
own soul. 




President R. A. Kent, of University of Louisville Speaks on Purposes of New 
Education Methods in Address to Class of 1934 

THE foreword to a recent transla- 
tion of a Russian text on Char- 
acter Education, states that a 
characteristic which distinguishes the 
Russian Revolution most strikingly 
from the revolutions of the past and 
which may be expected to mark the 
revolutions of the future, is the atten- 
tion given to children and youth in 
universities of TTie United Social So- 
viet Republic. Russian drama, music, 
and education are attracting universal 
attention along with their economics 
and politics. 


Children and youth are organized in 
what is called the Young Pioneers, 
sometimes called the Third Communist 
Shift, First, of course, is the Com- 
munist Party proper. Only about one 
per cent of all the Russian population 
belong to this party. The Second 
Shift is the young communist or Kom- 
somol Group. This includes nearly 
two million young people from fifteen 
to twenty-three years of age. The 
Third Shift is the Young Pioneers, 
made up of children from ten to fifteen 
years of age, with a membership of 
about four million. The Fourth is the 
little Octobrists, age seven to ten, 
named from the October Revolution 
which brought the Bolshevists into 
power. Thus there is a complete or- 
ganization which carries an individual 
from one organization to the next 
from the time he is seven years of 
age until he is twenty-three. 

These several groups provide spe- 
cific activities and definitely train in- 
dividuals for leadership. Their prime 
purpose of course is political, although 
health and physical training are in- 
cluded. They seek to impart social 
knowledge and to give participation in 
the economic construction of the coun- 
try. The cultural and recreational 
objective is also included, shaped in 
conformity with the concept of a com- 
munistic society. 


Germany is now making a new tra- 
dition, a tradition of the third empire. 
Saints, heroes, and martyrs are being 
created. Unlike other traditions this 
one is new, burning, and contempo- 
rary. It fans national pride and seeks 
directly to encourage dislike of other 
nations. This concept is expressed 
not only in music and literature; it is 
also a matter of text books and educa- 
tional methods. 

Herr Schemm, Minister of Educa- 
tion for Bavaria, in one of his earliest 
decrees after assuming office in March 
1933, declared that in all kinds of 
schools and school classes there must 
be a course of instruction on the "A- 
wakening of the Nation" based on the 
events of 1914 to 1933. In conformity 
with this decree, Herr Fikenscher has 
WTitten an article published in the 
German Teachers' Union Monthly Pub- 
lication, in which he points out the 
need of changing methods and content 

of teaching for the requirements of 
teaching for the requirements of the 
new action. 

In this article Herr Fikenscher asks 
and answers three questions. The first 
question is: "Are teachers equipped 
in enthusiasm and knowledge to deal 
with this latest period of history?" 
This he answers by pointing with sat- 
isfaction to the specific preparatory 
course available for teachers in what 
concerns history teaching in the 

His second question is: "What is to 
become of the old tag, 'no politics in 
the schools?'" His answer to this is 
that party politics have been brought 
to an end. The National Socialistic 
Party is not a party, it is the Nation. 
All teaching, therefore, about history 
is at the same time teaching about 
the Nation. Political party squabbles 

President Kent 

as they affect the schools are therefore 
at an end, 

Herr Fikenscher's third question is: 
"Is it possible to give history lessons 
of the kind required?" He answers 
by sajdng that those who are teaching 
the young boys and girls should not 
nourish illusions as to what can be 
done with the young children. He 
points out that the child in the earliest 
school years lives in the immediate 
present, and recommends the use of 
photographs of Storm Troops and any 
other aspects of the historical period, 
also of illustrated papers and films. 
He includes plenty of music and action, 
with marching and drilling. In this 
way he says, "knowledge, feeling, and 
action are to be united in the one idea 
— everything for Germany!" 

On the upper levels, that is, in high- 
er education, the German Ministry of 
the Interior has given orders for dras- 
tic reductions of the number of stu- 
dents in the universities and in other 
institutions which prepare for the pro- 
fessions. Out of nearly 40,000 candi- 
dates who have passed their matricula- 
tion examination, only 15,000 are to 
be admitted the coming year, and of 

these not more than one-tenth are to 
be women. The specific qualifications 
for these entrants to higher education 
are to be intellectual and physical fit- 
ness, character, and "national relia- 
bility." The London Times in citing 
these facts further states that no one 
who is not a professed Hitlerite need 
expect any more consideration than an 
anti-communist would receive in Rus- 
sia. The statement further points out 
that the intention of the Nazi govern- 
ment is to divert would-be profession- 
al men and officials into occupations 
where there is more room for them. 
This is a revolt against the exagger- 
ated importance which the educational 
system in Germany has attached to 
intellectual qualifications. 

But it is not necessary to go to Rus- 
sia or Germany to find those who be- 
lieve that the program of education 
which is supported by a nation should 
be definitely planned to train children 
and youths who are committed to a 
special form of political and social 


There is a group of educators in the 
United States who are openly and en- 
thusiastically advocating the setting 
up of a social and economic order 
which one of their leaders character- 
izes as not only the latest, but the last 
word in government, the perfect order. 
He would have us organize and teach 
a curriculum which would endue chil- 
dren and youth with a devotion to this 
order, not second to that which is 
striven for by the communists in Rus- 
sia or by the devotees of Hitler in 

To be honest to the whole situation 
any well informed person is compelled 
to admit the existence in this country 
of conditions which in principal are 
similar, if not parallel in isolated in- 
stances, to those which have already 
been cited on nationalistic scales. 


Only recently an acquaintance, 
whose veracity I have no reason to im- 
peach, told me that during an inspec- 
tion of one of the largest universities 
in the United States he asked the head 
of the department of economics of that 
institution whether any member of his 
staff had any leaning toward a belief 
in the government ownership of public 
utilities. The reply was entirely nega- 
tive. My friend's inquiries among the 
individual members of this staff en- 
tirely confirmed the judgment of the 
head of the department. It so happens 
that this department has for some 
time past liberally subsidized by one 
of the largest utility corporations of 
the country. 


In another university, located in an 
entirely different state from the form- 
er, the head of one of the social science 
departments was informed last winter 
that his services would no longer be 
needed after the end of the current 

for JUNE -JULY, 1934 


school year. As far as could be found 
out the reason back of this action was 
this professor's deep sympathetic in- 
terest in the living conditions of 
groups of persons employed in a large 
industry of his commonwealth. Know- 
ing the probable opposition to his point 
of view from certain centers of influ- 
ence he had, up to the time that he 
was notified of his dismissal, restrain- 
ed himself from public utterance along 
the line of his conviction. After he 
had been told of the termination of his 
services, his courage revived and he 
made, and published the results of, 
some scientific studies among the 
groups where his interests had already 
been. The validity of the facts which 
he presented was so overwhelming 
that the sentiment of the state rolled 
up in protest at his dismissal, and he 
was recently informed that his ser- 
vices would be continued indefinitely. 


This recital, fragmentary as it is, 
is sufficient to raise the question, 
"What is education, and what is edu- 
cation for?" I fully realize that in 
asking this and in making any attempt 
to answer it, I am treading a path so 
often traversed that it has become a 
deep rut; also that this path is open to 
the sniping of certain sharp shooters 
who constantly lurk in the background, 
gleefully anticipating the individual 
who is so foolish as to tread it. Be 
that as it may, there has never been 
a time in American history, particu- 
larly in the history of our higher edu- 
cation, when this question was in 
greater need of sobre, unbiased con- 

In the first place, I assert that edu- 
cation is not for the purpose of trying 
to set up or be responsible for the per- 
petuation of any given social or eco- 
nomic order. It has been the belief of 
many that the schools are for the pur- 
pose of helping to prepare children and 
youth to become acceptable members 
of the society of which they are a part. 
With this principle I most heartily 
agree. But no period in our history 
contains more potent argument than 
does the present, one to support the 
proposition that any person who is so 
committed to a given order that he be- 
lieves a deviation from it to be funda- 
mentally wi'ong, is a serious deterrent 
to any improvement. There can be no 
progress without change, and that per- 
son who for whatever cause is opposed 
to anything difi^erent from the status 
quo, is an enemy to all progress. 


It becomes apparent then, does it 
not, that the principle which I have 
just stated is valid in both its negative 
as well as in its positive application. 
On the negative side the objective of 
a program of education, I suppose we 
would agree, should not be to tear 
down an existing order. On the posi- 
tive side the objective should not be 
to defend to the last ditch any given 
regime. In each case the underlying 
principle is the same, viz.: the schools, 
the colleges, and the universities 
should not be institutions of social or 
economic propaganda. That youth who 
through the training given him in the 
process of his formal education, can 
see nothing good in anything except 
that which he has been taught and, on 

the other hand, in the face of any evi- 
dence can see nothing wrong in what 
he has learned to believe, — that youth, 
I say, has not been educated, — he has 
been trained to act and not think. He 
is the highest known type of trained 

This principle further means that 
the function of education is to main- 
tain a system of learning and to de- 
velop the individual, and it is not to 
indicate either negative or positive re- 
strictions upon the scope of the indi- 
vidual's activities or expression. With 
the future as uncertain as it now is, 
no one can tell what changes may 
come in the next few years. What 
college or university has the omnipo- 
tence to tell its students what order 
is to be the order, or to attempt to 
prepare them for any given social or 
economic regime ? Is there any spe- 
cific book learning which would enable 
young men or women to accommodate 
themselves more easily to what may 
happen if the social order changes, — 
and it has been continually changing 
throughout history by revolutionary 
processes of varying degrees of ra- 
pidity? That people will most suc- 
cessfully cope with these changes 
which can most intelligently make the 
adaptations necessary. 


My second general assertion is that 
education needs to get a new concep- 
tion of the function and of the stand- 
ards of scholarship. It may be that 
the new German order where every 
university student will have spent 
some time in a labor camp, is far su- 
perior to the traditional European con- 
cept according to which it is a disgrace 
for a university student to do menial 
labor. As one has well said, simple 
increasing education is not going to 
cure the ills of the world. You remem- 
ber the story related in the Bible, of 
the Pharisees who encompassed land 
and sea to get a convert, and then pro- 
ceeded to make him tenfold more a 
child of hell than they were. This 
they did merely by educating him. 

Our so-called colleges of Liberal 
Arts have traditionally become the 
greatest strongholds of academic con- 
servatism and reactionary centers of 
so-called intelligent activities that can 
be found in any institution in this 
country. Shackled by the mechanics 
of credits, time units, and percentage 
marks of individual achievement, be- 
fore the progression movements now 
operating became efl'ective, they bade 
fair to occupy a place in the education- 
al picture of America comparable with 
that held by the monasteries in the 
ecclesiastical photograph of Europe 
preceding the Reformation. 


In a recent address on the changing 
meaning of scholarships, President 
Henry T. Moore of Skidmore College, 
has recently well said that we should 
concern ourselves more in the mea- 
surement of the interests of students 
than in the marks which they make on 
their examinations. The range of these 
interests is of far greater importance 
in the development of these youths, 
and therefore will be of greater sig- 
nificance to the society of which they 

will be a part. Professor Paul Douglas 
has recently pointed out the fact that 
some of the more corrupt of our po- 
litical bosses have been men who made 
high grades in their college courses in 
ethics and political science. A student 
at the University of Kansas criticizes 
our "false criterion of scholarship" as 
"a dangerous foundation of idealism 
and achievement." Once an educated 
person was he who knew the facts of 
organized knowledge. Now a fraction 
of knowable facts that any person can 
assemble has become infinitesimally 
small. Meanwhile we have come more 
and more to see the need "That each 
individual should have within him a 
sustaining source of creative inter- 
ests," and of social mindedness. The 
college which in the face of this new 
situation still rigidly adheres to the 
old standai-ds of scholarship is just as 
guilty of academic indoctrination as is 
Russia or Germany of social, eco- 
nomic, or civic. 

In the third place I assert that the 
college should seek to develop a new 
type of rugged individualism. "Con- 
fidence in expert opinion is logical and 
useful in all matters in which reason- 
ing and conclusions can be based on 
reliable observation. 

"The tendency, however, can be car- 
ried too far. There are matters of 
general concern — such as education 
and politics — in which ... every 
man should endeavor to form — in all 
modesty — an intelligent opinion. In 
these things we may admit the ad- 
vantages of special training, but we 
must also recognize that, even for the 
trained, the premises for reasoning 
are uncertain and complex. Excess of 
authority worship in these things 
breeds timidity of thought on the part 
of those who might contribute fresh 
points of view .... We have erred in 
an excess of authority worship in these 


We need a type of individual who 
can think, who is not afraid to think, 
and who actually does think. In the 
next place we are sadly in need of 
those individuals who after having 
thought have the courage to act in an 
intelligent manner, that is, on a 
thought out basis. 

In one of the moderately sized cities 
of this country I was recently told by 
one of its leading politicians that the 
precinct in which it was most difficult 
to secure any person to file as a candi- 
date for the City Board of Aldermen 
is that precinct which has the largest 
proportion of college and university 
graduates. No one, I presume, would 
question the general intelligence or the 
qualifications of training of the ma- 
jority of the voters in this precinct. 
Anyone has a right to question the 
civic value of their training. They re- 
fuse to act on what they know, — in 
conformity with the civic ideals and 
responsibilities which I presume we 
would all accept theoretically, at least, 
as being applicable to all citizens. 

Finally, I assert that the function 
of education is to develop social in- 
telligence and social conscience. This 
social mindedness is not in contradic- 
tion to the intellectual individualism 
already referred to but rather in sup- 
port of it. 




The Bucknell Bookshelf has recently 
received nine additional works by 
Bucknell men. Dr. Gilbert Perez, '07, 
sends us from the Philippines two 
monographs and three pamphlets, 
while Professor Cyrus H. Karraker of 
the faculty contributes two books. Pro- 
fessor Paul Gates of the faculty adds 
one book and Dr. Edwin E. Aubrey, 
'19, sends his latest. 

Perez — Numismatic and Educator 

Dr. Perez is the author of numerous 
articles on Numismatics, one, "The 
Mint of The Philippine Islands" has 
been added to the Bookshelf. It is 
published by The American Numis- 
matic Society. As an educator Dr. 
Perez has written several manuals and 
reports published by The Bureau of 
Education, and one series of essays en- 
titled "Fellow Teachers". 

Karraker Receives Praise 

The recent publication from the 
University of Pennsylvania Press en- 
titled "The Hispaniola Treasure" by 
Dr. Kai-raker has received wide recog- 
nition as an interesting and authora- 
tive treatise on the old treasure hunts 
along the Spanish Main. Theodore 
Hall in his column "No Ends of Books" 
writes "The Hispaniola Treasure" will 
please the historical expert, I dare say. 
But I am far more sure that its 
strange lore and vivid excitement will 
delight the lay reader". Dr. Karraker 
is also the author of "The Seventeenth 
Century Sheriff" published by the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina Press in 
1930. Both volumes have been added 
to the Bookshelf. 

Gates Studies the I. C. 

Published by the Harvard Press as 
one of the Economic Series "The Illi- 
nois Central Railroad and its Coloniza- 
tion Work", by Paul W. Gates, was 
awarded the David A. Wells prize at 
Harvard for the year 1931-32 as the 
best essay in certain specified fields of 
economics. Professor Gates's study 
covers so many aspects of Middle 
Western life in the nineteenth century 
that it will be of the deepest interest 
not only to economists but to students 
of American frontier history, agricul- 
ture, immigration, and colonization as 

The Future of Religion 

Dr. Edwin E. Aubrey of the faculty 
of The University of Chicago delves 
into the deeper meanings of religion 
to the youth of today as he writes "Re- 
ligion and The Next Generation", pub- 
lished by Harpers. The book is destin- 
ed as an aid to teachers and parents 
as well as a guide to the understand- 
ing of the fundamental aspects of 
human needs. 


Dr. William Thompson, '01, promi- 
nent and esteemed Philadelphia den- 
tist died in the Presbyterian Hospital 
in that city on June 28, 1934. He had 
been ill for less than a month. Dr. 
Thompson was a familiar figure at 
Bucknell Commencements and Home- 
comings for the past thirty years and 
his passing will be mourned by count- 
less Bucknell friends. 

Surviving are his wife, Mrs. Louise 
Ripple Thompson, and three sons: Dr. 
William E., Jr., '25, John R. and Ro- 
bert E., both members of the Class of 
1935. Two granddaughters, Margaret 
Ann and Patricia Ann Thompson, also 
survive in addition to a sister, who re- 
sides in Brooklyn, N. Y. 

Brief funeral services were held in 
Philadelphia and burial at Milton, 
Sunday, July 1. 


Leaving New York June 20 on board 
the "S. S. Manhattan," Dr. Homer P. 
Rainey, president of Bucknell, will tour 
Europe this summer in the company of 
Dr. Sherwood Eddy and a group of 
educators. The group will study Euro- 
pean educational, social, and econom- 
ic situations. 


"Looking Backward Half a Cen- 
tury" is the title of an article from 
the pen of President Emeritus Emory 
W. Hunt which recently appeared in 
the Rochester Alumni Review. Dr. 
Hunt attended in June the fiftieth re- 
union of his class at Rochester. 

TION JUNE 9, 1934, 3 P. M. 

Let us go back to last June, when, 
according to the records, we enjoyed 
the best alumni attendance at Com- 
mencement in history. That season 
was fully reviewed in the June number 
of The Alumni Monthly but little at- 
tention was given editorially to the 
detail and headaches of arranging for 
the best attended Commencement. 
Those things are taken for granted. 
They are just done in some mysterious 
way, probably by the use of mirrors, 
and there you are. Suffice it to say 
that no mirrors were used. It was all 
the result of hard work, many letters, 
and direct concentration of effort dur- 
ing May toward the one purpose of 
getting alumni to come back to the 
campus. The same story repeats itself 
this year, as it has for the past ten 
years. We also at this time announce 
and celebrate our tenth anniversary 
as your secretary. The past decade has 
been swift and pleasant and we pay a 
tribute to the many alumni who have, 
through cooperation, counsel, and 
cheerful advice, made of our tasks a 
pleasure in serving Alma Mater and 
her six thousand sons and daughters. 

— but we started to make an annual 
report of "High Lights" beginning 
with last June. After Commencement 
we attended the annual sessions of 
The American Alumni Council in Chi- 
cago. Here Bucknell gained national 
recognition through the award of a 
first prize to The Bucknell Alumni 
Monthly for the best news story of the 
year appearing in any college alumni 
magazine. Your secretary was further 
honored by this national body of alum- 
ni representatives by election to the 
post of Director for Conventions of 
the organization. (Probably to get 
some work out of him to pay for the 
magazine prize). 

Summer work at the office followed 
the Chicago trip. Our annual over- 
hauling of files requires the full two 

months of June and July. We check 
and recheck some thirty thousand 
cards on which are classified all alum- 
ni, m.en and women, graduates and 
non-graduates. In the annual "house 
cleaning" we attempt to i-epair the 
damage done during the past twelve 
months by constant usage, broken se- 
quences, and the inevitable percentage 
of politely called "erratum". Frater- 
nity files, club lists, class cards, and 
biographical files are checked against 
the master plates and as a final filing 
operation we add the two hundred odd 
graduates of the past June and their 
less fortunate class members who have 
dropped by the wayside during the 
previous four years. Thus each sum- 
mer a new group of two or three hun- 
dred alumni come into our records as 
members of the great body we know 
as The General Alumni Association. 

Before' the opening of college in 
September, plans are laid for Home- 
coming, a chairman elected, and letters 
and stories prepared to "resell" the 
annual football classic to the alumni. 
All of the preliminary work leading to 
Homecoming culminates on th
