A qood book, is the precious 
lire blood of cv master -ip'irit 
treA9ured up for ex life bc^v^nd life. Von 




John Wesley was a hymn writer^ 
preacher, scholar, statesman and 
founder of the Methodist Church. 
Inasmuch as Dickinson is a Meth- 
odist institution, we deemed it 
appropriate to use some events of 
his life as a basis for our theme. 
Each one of the division pages 
portrays one outstanding 
feature of his life. 





VC'hen, in later years, you 
fondly turn the pages of this 
Dart of 1927, truly a book of 
memories, may you find re- 
membrance of those glorious 
days in dear pld Dickinson 
the living emblem of character, 
knowledge, and good fellow- 

!f your tuture may be made 
a little happier by the mem- 
ories awakened by the pages 
of this book, our work shall 
not have been in vain.

Frosh — Sophs 






Come and in tuneful lays 
Your happy voices raise 

To Dickinson 
Our Alma Mater dear. 
Thy sons from far and near 
Sing thee with hearty cheer. 

Fair Dickinson. 


Not wreaths of flowers, we 
Now gladly bring to thee. 

Dear Dickinson. 
Tributes of praise and love 
Wherever we may move 
Shall our attachment prove, 

Dear Dickinson. 

Hail! thou with honors crowned. 
For truth and right renowned. 

Hail Dickinson! 
In every land and clime 
Thy illustrious sons now shine 
And prove thy ways sublime. 

Hail Dickinson. 

Fondly our memory 
Shall ever turn to thee. 

Fair Dickinson. 
All those time-honored ways. 
Those maidens, fair as fays. 
Those happy joy-filled days 

In Dickinson. 




e^^ ^ THE 1927 DART~^^;^} 

Bradley Hall 


THE 1927 DART 

"A lilttf learning is a dantieraus Ihiny: 
Drink deep, or lasle not the Pierian spring." 

So says Pope in his "Essay on Criticism." 

I am not assuming that any one in your honored class feels he has advanced far 
enough in the field of learning, but there is always a danger that some will be satisfied 
with the attainments here achieved. Far better is that attitude which considers all of 
life both an opportunity for and a field of learning. Pope has another appropriate 
word in his "Essay on Man." 

"Learn from the birds what linid the thickets yield: 
Learn from the beasts the physic of the field: 
The arts of building from the bee receive: 
Learn of the mole to plough, the ivorm to weave" 

In other words, the man or woman who goes through life with eyes. ears. mind, and 
heart open is constantly learning and constantly growing. 

You are to be congratulated on the age in which you live. Your first and greatest 
interest is to understand this age. It is a lime dominated by Business, and largely 
measured by material things. The achievements of the past which have reached their 
culmination in the present scientific age have been chiefly in the field of invention and 
discovery. Mechanics and commerce have largely dominated men's imagination, hence 
th; perfection of machines, the expansion of commerce, and the growth of wealth: but 
with these things human problems have increased In these material expansions per- 
sonal interests have frequently conflicted, jealousies have arisen, and wars have resulted. 
The present wave of ill will, distrust, and recriminations has been inevitable because 
the emphasis of life has been placed upon material things rather than upon spiritual 

The seas of international understanding and good will, the oceans of Christian 
brotherhood, arc yet uncharted and unplumbed. They need some new Columbus in 
his three ships — Faith. Understanding, and Good Will — to undertake another daring 
voyage of discovery to find that land that lies within the realm of possibility, but as 
yet is (erro incognita to so much of the world. 

Jason seeking the Golden Fleece. Sir Launfal in quest of the Holy Grail. Marconi 
inventing wireless telegraphy. Captain Byrd encircling the pole — all these appeal to 
our imagination, but the man who makes Christian brotherhood a reality, who leads 
in the conquest of disease and poverty, who makes war an impossibility, and teaches 
the world how to live together in peace and amity in spite of conflicting interests and 
misunderstandings, of race or creed — his services to mankind will be far greater than 
that of any one who has gone before. 

This" opportunity is yours. This new world, dreamed of by seers and foretold 
by prophets, will become a reality only as it is espoused by human leaders. Among 
these twentieth century crusaders to whom is entrusted this sacred cause, may you of 
the Class of Nineteen Hundred and Twenty-seven find an honored place. 

Yours faithfully, 

John W. Long.

THE 1927 DART 

Farewell Dickinson 

Class of '27 

The ship is all poised and waiting. 
Waiting for us to depart; 
And the tide — swifU iinabating. 
We look at with saddened heart. 

For the time has arrived when we leave thee 
To search for knowledge alone; 
But no building or land shall be fairer to see 
Than the school ive can call our oivn. 

A mist seems to beckon us forward, 
Into blackness as dark as night; 
But we pause once again on the threshold. 
Pause in a gesture of fright. 

Into channels unknown we shall enter. 
Under skies that are gay and serene. 
We shall sail through summer and winter. 
For treasures to bring to our queen. 

And so, as we start on our journey. 
Not a cloud to mar the sky. 
We give one last glance at Dickinson 
And bid her a fond good-bye.

To Dean J. Milton Skeath, an inspiring 
teacher, ivhose fine personality and deep de- 
votion to the highest interests of the students 
have enshrined him in the hearts of all, we, 
the Senior Class, wish to express our appre- 
ciation of his unfailing aid and sympathy by 
dedicating to him, the Senior Section. 


THE 1927 DART 

Marion Evelyn Fleming 

It is with the deepest respect and most 
sincere gratitude, that we, the class of nine- 
teen hundred tiventy-scvcn, express our pro- 
found admiration for Marion Evelyn Flem- 
ing, our class adviser. Her counsel was at 
all times of the very highest type, and her 
infinite variety, sound judgment, and charm- 
ing personality, have endeared her to all with 
whom she has been associated. We shall 
never forget her ever-present devotion and 
guidance throughout our two years together, 
and our memory of her welcome contribu- 
tions to our success will never fade.

Who Died October 28th 

To Lorraine Secrist, a friend and pal, 
whose true comradeship and unexcelled class

us all. Her charm of personality, her mag-

to others are memories which can never fade.

JuLiiior Class History 

THE organization of the incomparable Juniors had its origin while October was 
yet in its youth. Upon a summons issued by the ex-president of the Maroon and 
Gray, all those who entertained hopes of becoming a member of this exclusive 
aggregation met for the purpose of organization. It was at this meeting that John 
Paschal was elected President of the class; Elizabeth Rich. Vice-President: Bruce Cleaver. 
Treasurer: and Lorraine Secrist. Secretary. Upon the death of Miss Secrist. Mary 
Bryan assumed the latter position. In the hands of these efficient pilots were placed 
th; fortunes of the class of '28. 

On November 5rd the first assemblage as organized Juniors was called by our 
president the "Redoubtable Pat." Miss Marion Affhauser. the popular Massachusetts 
accession to the faculty this year, was elected class adviser. 

Another achievement, worthy of mention, was the election of an Editor-in-Chief 
and Business Manager for the annual DART of 1928. Mr. Paschal, our president, was 
elected to the former position of responsibility, while Mr. Neat assumed charge of the 
latter. All felt that the selection of these competent Juniors was unquestionable. 

As a class, the first struggle for supremacy over our "superiors ' was enacted on 
the gridiron. To the unspeakable chagrin of the warriors of the Purple and Gold the 
final outcome showed a 0-0 score, but the spirit they evidenced was worthy of an 
apache. Later on a series of combats was instituted against the belligerent Seniors on 
the basketball floor: and although Dame Fortune seemed reluctant to smile and several 
Waterloos were our portion, our spirit remained unquenched. The Junior Girls' Bas- 
ketball team, however, made their name redound to honor and glory by completely 
submerging their antagonistic rivals. 

In social activities the Juniors excelled, and the banquet given to the erstwhile 
Seniors February 14th was voted by all a glowing success. Our president. Mr. Paschal, 
presided as toastmaster and with his customary cleverness, handled the position in a 
most competent fashion. Speeches were given by several members of both classes 
and faculty. 

About the 15th of March our President called a meeting at which the Junior 
Union Board was elected. Jean Sykcs. a prominent member of our class, was chosen 
Editor-in-Chief and a very efficient staff was selected to assist her. 

For the sake of variety and originality the Juniors intend to deviate from the 
"institutional regime " of sleigh rides this year inasmuch as circumstances prevented any 
diversion of this type. We hope the attainments yet to be recorded will surpass our 
crowning achievements that now shine with an ineflable lustre.

the year: chief of which arc inter-class football, basketball, and track tournaments, and 
the spring tennis championship games. Interest in girls' athletics as well as inter-class

"Lindy. " another day stu- 
dent from Newberry, came 
through with a crash in a 
of our games. During his 
two years at Dickinson. 
"Johnny" has gained a lot 
of yardage around the ends 
A sure tackle and a speedy 
runner, that's Lindemuth. 
"Lindy" has been elected cap- 
tain for '17 team. 

George Nye 


"Granny." one of the most consistent and hardest plunging fullbacks ever seen 
at Dickinson, rose to stellar heights in the last two years. Holding down a backfield 
position each of his four years at Sem. he proved to be a punting ace as well as a real 
fighter. Not spectacular, but just that steady pounding away characterizes an excep- 
tional player. George leaves us this year and we know he'll make good. 


Joseph w. Bechdel 

Right Tackle 

After three years of con- 
sistent fighting in the line, 
"Joe" was rewarded by his 
election to lead the 19 26 
team. Always quick and a 
deadly tackle, th^ ""Fighting 
Parson" rose to great h:ights 
this year and successfully led 
the Gold and White through 
a most difficult season. Good-

"Jim" Griffiths. "Art" Flannigan. and "Red Grange" Griffiths — all absent. Coach 
M. R. Swartz surely faced a tough proposition, for eleven of sixteen letter-men from 
last year were out of the lineup. But true to form. "Cardy" proceeded to build up a 
fast, husky varsity out of a wealth of new material and several who had returned 
from last year. In a short time he had the team in fine shape, all set for one of the 
heaviest schedules that the Gold and White has ever faced. 

Hip! Hip! and "Lindy" shot around the end for the first touchdown in Sem's 
initial game of the season, against Franklin and Marshall Frosh. In addition to the 
vets. Nye. Lindemuth. Hohenshelt. McKay. Good. Baird and Captain "Joe" Bcchdel. 
several new mud-smeared faces were to be seen, belonging to PenchefT. a light, hard- 
running halfback; Posega, left end from Steelton. Pa.: Stabnau. left tackle, also from 
Steelton; Fryberger. left guard, hailing from Marietta. Pa.: and Lipski. center, from 
Larksville. Pa. The team made a fine getaway, and at the close of a rather warm 
afternoon had tucked away a 15-0 victory on the local field. 

A week later "The School Upon The Hilltop" tied the heavy Bucknell Yearlings 
7-7 on Sem's field. The Bechdel Gang showed great skill in making its lone touch- 
down, because the Orange and Black presented a much heavier backfield and a mighty 
line. It was unlucky in being "gypped" out of another six points by the flagrant rul- 
ing of an official. 

After a 125-mile trip to Ithaca the Dickinson Warriors showed real fighting 
spirit by tying the powerful Red and White Frosh 0-0. Nye. our best ground gainer 
in this game, showed excellent punting ability, gaining on every exchange of kicks. 

Sem took a clever eleven to Mansfield the following week and completely baffled 
the Teachers with brilliant end runs, powerful line smashes and accurate passes, until 
the end of the first half. At this time Mansfield reversed the dope and made a touch- 
down in each of the second, third, and final periods, giving Coach Ed. Russell's eleven 
a 21-13 victory. 

The following Saturday the crippled Gold and White aggregation faced the 
fighting Wyoming eleven, out for goreful revenge. "Cardy's" crew played a slashing, 
driving game on the Wyoming gridiron. The team was greatly disheartened by the 
absence of Captain Bechdel and quarterback Pencheff but did not lack fight and determi- 
nation. However, nothing could stop the Blue and White tornado on its march to 
victory. It was a heart-breaking defeat, the final score being 26-0. 

Recovering quickly from this repulse the Williamsporters came through with a 
14-10 victory over its old-time rival. Bloomsburg Normal, on the local field. Nye's 
consistent line plunging. Good's end running, and Pencheff's punt running were fea- 
tures of the game. 

A rig-chig-boom — and we're ofl^! Ray team — a touchdown — a pass — giving us 
another six points to our credit — runs — yells — more touchdowns and — a score. During 
the first half our score rose high but Lock Haven Normal's good sports stuck it through 



THE 1927 DART 

to the end — which was the big score of 106 0. with Scm scoring sixteen touchdowns. 
At the beginning of the game it was easily seen that our team was far superior to the 

The Gold and White emerged 50-0 victors over Keystone Academy in the last 
game of the season. November 20. Dickinson played a smashing, line-wrecking game. 
with Keystone threatening but once. "Granny" Nye. our consistent plunging fullback, 
scored twice in the first period. He added the extra point to the first The Gold and 
White tried an aerial attack in the second period which resulted in a touchdown by 
"Lindy. ' In the second half the ball was in our possession most of the time. It was 
in the latter part of this game that McKay, our fleet halfback, in an attempt to catch 
a forward pass, ran into the goal post, sustaining a broken nose. 

The student body greatly appreciates the splendid work of Coach Swarlz. Trainer 
Smith and Captain Bechdel. as well as that of the entire team. Inasmuch as this was 
the last football season at Dickinson for Captain "Joe" Bechdel. Fred Myers. Walter 
Stabnau. "Dick" Hohenshell. "Johnny" l.indemuth. "Mac" McKay. "Johnny" Schu-

Resume of 1927 Basketball Season 

BRIU.IANT playing throughout the difficult schedule of twelve games gave "The 
School Upon the Hilltop" another successful basketball season. The fine showing 
which the team made in spite of injuries and other misfortunes was due to the 
ever-present fighting spirit and hard, fast playing of the Gold and White court squad. 
Coach "Cardy" Swartz had a nucleus of McKay. Nye and Hohenshelt. all letter-men 
from last year: Lindemuth and Neal. substitutes from former seasons: and Schuchart. 
Van Antwerp. Fryberger, Chambers. Poscga. Shruers, Pumphrey. and Myers, all new 
men. from which to build a representative team. After several weeks of practice 
"Cardy" produced a smooth working combination to meet Trevorton High School 
in the first game of the season. January 21st. on the local floor. With McKay leading 
the scoring attack, the regular five swept the coal town outfit off their feet, the final 
score being 45-17. 

The following night Seminary swamped Lock Haven Normal School with a 
score of 49-14. on the home court. McKay was high scorer with seventeen points to 
his credit. 

The first trip came when the squad made its annual basketball trip to Mansfield 
where the Normal came out on top of a 29-16 score in a slow game due chiefly to the 
condition of the floor. The Gold and White five staged a remarkable comeback the 
next evening when the Bloomsburg Normal quintet visited Williamsport. The Teach- 
ers were stalled by a strong Dickinson attack in the last few minutes of play, and 
"Cardy's" crew came through on the long end of a 26-24 score. Fighting furiously 
the Seminary five lost the decision to Wyoming. 26-18. on our home floor, after one 
of the fastest and best clashes of several years. 

Lock Haven Normal was next met at Lock Haven in a hard, fast game of basket- 
ball from which the Gold and White quintet emerged victorious by a score of 34-19. 
The smooth-working team play of Coach Swartzs five enabled them to pile up a lead 
which they held throughout the contest. 

The next night the Mansfield Normal five received a fall at the hands of the local 
court team on Seminary's floor after a see-saw struggle. The final score was 27-25. 
On February 25. Dickinson fell before the onslaught of Wyoming at Kingston, the 
39-27 score belonging chiefly to Wyoming. The Gold and White bowed in defeat to 
Bloomsburg Normal the next night on Bloomsburg's floor after a fast game, the final 
score resting at 43-41. 

Coach Swartzs team lost to the Wilkes-Barre Business College five. March 4. at 
Wilkes-Barre. "The School Upon the Hilltop" staged a pretty rally in the second 
half but lost to a score of 25-24. The team took its last trip of the season when it 
went to Factoryvillc on March 5. After being outplayed most of the game, the Key- 
stone five threw a whirlwind finish that gave them the advantage of a 34-29 score. 

The Gold and White scored an overwhelming victory over Keystone Academy in 
the final game of the season, played March 1 1 . at home. This was the last appearance 
in basketball togs at Dickinson for McKay. Nye. Hohenshelt. and Schuchart: and they 
finished their fighting for our Alma Mater in a whirlwind manner. 

Breaking even in the number of games played, the Dickinson quintet completed 
the schedule with an enviable record. The ideals of real basketball, together with the 
fighting spirit of the team instilled by Coach Swartz, were the outstanding features 
of this season's contests.

BASKETBALL for girls in Seminary is not majored but when Coach Wilson took 
charge she made up a snappy schedule. This season Seminary played two games 
with the Y. W. C. A. team winning one by a score 21-19 and losing one 16-18. 

Jean Brown, from Phillipsburg High, was high scorer in varsity games. "Scal- 
lops" Brubaker. a consistent varsity forward for three years at Trevorton High School, 
gave Jean a fast race for first place in the total score, and outnumbered her in class games. 

Captain Ruth Williams, as guard, and Ruth Rees at center, starred in all games 
with their all-around playing. "Kay" Class as side-center showed her ability in being 
alert and quick. The other varsity guard. Jane Castner. played a good defensive game.

One thing which has developed this past year is the rivalry between the classes. 
All sports were taken in and as the result, the Sophomores were victorious in basketball. 
The Seniors took second place with the Juniors on the tail end. 

The Junior-Senior football game was quite a success this year. However, there 
was one fault, the game ended in a tie. 

The competition in the intcr-dass track meet this year should also be very keen. 

We hope this interest between classes will rise to a greater height next year, so the 
Seniors can beat the Juniors.

At last, the ministerial group has sailed out into smooth waters of organization 
beyond the foaming breakers of obstacles. 

The group was assembled on March 2. 1927. choosing for President. Frank 
Logsdon; Vice-President. Pannebaker: Secretary. McCune. Inasmuch as preachers 
arc not supposed to trespass the common substance used as a legal medium of exchange, 
it was deemed wise that no treasurer be elected — a very sagacious decision. 

Dr. Long, our busy President, aside from his multifarious an^ mu'titu linous 
regime of duties, finds time each Wednesday evening to spend a profitable half hour 
instructing the group on the important features which enter the life of a 20th century 
minister of Christ. At present, the main study is the Methodist discipline. 

This study has proved extremely interesting and exceedingly profitable under Dr. 
Long's supervision. In the event of his absence the members of the group select a 
section of the discipline and discuss it freely among themselves, thus stimulating interest 
and individual thought. 

It is hoped for those who follow in the future years that this group will be as 
rich a blessing and a means of opening a new path for you as it is to those of us who 
are very reluctantly leaving the group in body only.

One of the most iniercsiing and helpful events which occurs during an average 
week at Dickinson, is the regular meeting of the Y. W. C. A. on Sunday evening. 

In the beginning of the year, our president. Mary Fegley. arranged for Miss 
Saxton. the local Y. W. C. A. Secretary, to come to tell us about that particular branch 
of the "Y" which has to do with younger girls and is called the Girl Reserves. Miss 
Saxton taught us some new Y. W. songs and told us much about Y. W. C. A. work. 
Altogether, her visits helped to launch one of the most successful years the Y. W. C. A. 
has had at the Seminary, and. together with the basketball games played with the local 
Y. W. girls, they have strengthened our interest in the local Y. W. 

The principal accomplishment of this year's work, is the transformation of the old 
Tripartite room into a recreation room for the girls. Sufficient money has been earned 
by the girls, themselves, to buy rugs and curtains for the room. The library has been 
rearranged and catalogued; and a few books and many new and interesting magazines 
have been added to our reading material. Dr. Long has promised to provide whatever 
other furnishings are found to be needed. Although the finishing of the work on this 
room may not be brought about until the end of the year, we sincerely hope that the

^ ^ THE 1927 PAR-r" 

This two-net college tragi-comedv was the second play presented by the Dramatic 
Club, Friday. March 18. 1927. 

The plot of the play was laid about the clever thefts of a mysterious gentleman 
thief, who was thought to be a college man. The plot was very interesting and in a 
sense perplexing to the audience, the identity of the thief being concealed until the 
truth was revealed. The detective. Foster, catches Dal Remington, nicknamed "Slats." 
with money and a gold vanity case which has been taken from Mrs. Phillips, and ac- 
cuses him of other thefts made in that community, and proceeds to take him to jail 
as the "Raffles ■ who has baffled the police. The suspense is broken by the entrance of 
Dai's college chums who reveal his theft as an initiation stunt, and the entrance of 
Kennedy, a policeman, who tells the detective that the real "Raffles" has been found, 
thus freeing Dal. 

A pretty love story is woven into the play — where is college life complete with- 
out love affairs? 

Humor is added by the constant clashes between an amateur detective and the 
detective from headquarters. The amateur has received his training from the Horn- 
blower Correspondence School.

''The Neighbors 


The first of the two pbys presented by the Dramatic Club. Friday. March 18. 
1927. was "The Neighbors' written by Zona Gale. As the saying goes, this was 
"short but sweet" and packed into the forty five minutes necessary lo produce the play 
could be found the elements of tears and laughter. 

The scene is laid in Mrs. Abels kitchen. The plot, if there is such, centers 
about the arrival of a nephew of one of the "Neighbors." These "Neighbors." though 
ever so busy, show the true worth of their character by their willingness to help their 
neighbor. A love story is introduced, featuring a bashful youth. Peter, and Mrs 
Abel's daughter. Inez. Peter is the source of much humor and wit. 

The neighbors find their willingness to help is hindered when they discover the 
nephew is not to come, but they realize the good they derived from being folks.' 
and at the end of the sketch they unfold to the audience the best side of their characters. 

The characters were ably chosen. In their make-up and activity, they provided 
much fun and helped to make the play more interesting.

Union Board 

The Union, as everyone knows, has been a huge success this year in spite of start- 
ing under difficulties. The loss of all the Union cuts delayed the first issue for several 
weeks but the art department and the editor-in-chief, Gladys Decker, produced cuts 
which far surpassed the ones that have stepped out of sight. Thus the seeming handi- 
cap helped to turn out a new and more original magazine. 

The Union, usually, has come out on time while the news is fresh and the original 
wise-cracks of the students have not yet been preserved in alcohol. The editorials have 
been interesting pieces of work, well worth the reading, and the literary branch has 
given us some very clever and well written stories and essays. Poetry, of which we 
have had more than usual, has appeared in that department also. The exchange editor 
has been very busy for there seems to be a great many schools who would like to profit 
by our magazine. In athletics we have had some clear, snappy writings of our various 
teams and the games they have played. The alumni department is larger this year and. 
according to the editor, takes a good deal of research work. The locals tell a great 
deal about what we have done this year, socially and scholastically. Last, but not 
least, we find the "Hash" pages. These bits of Seminary humor, perhaps, stay with 
us longer than any other. They seem peculiar to the species of "Mallards" raised at 

The editors of the different departments have worked long and hard to make the 
Union the record of student life. The business staff has been making the Union a 
sound business proposition and not a drain on the school. 

The Juniors, as usual, put out the last issue: a review of their Junior year. 
v^s it any better than our Junior Union.' You answer that'

Tke Dart Board 

Seniors! After four years of tedious work and many hardships, we can well be 
proud of ourselves, and of the records which our illustrious class has made, scholastic- 
ally and athletically. 

Our Senior year is rapidly coming to a close. We have been eagerly looking for- 
ward to this our final year, regarding it as one in which we would have many idle 
hours to spend in the pursuit of pleasure. We thought we could rest our oars and 
drift a while with the stream, but our tasks were not complete by any means. The 
prominence of our class in the various school activities was outstanding. Our class 
has won many laurels in the field of study and sport, but no permanent record of these 
achievements has ever been compiled. This, the greatest task that has ever confronted 
us. is the duty of our class, and must be accomplished ere we rest. 

The Dart of 19 26 was one of the finest year books ever published at Dickinson 
Seminary. This is evidenced by the fact that the book won a silver loving cup awarded 
by the Art Crafts Guild, and also received honorable mention in th.' Central Inter- 
scholastic Press Association contest. 

The 19 27 Dart staff realized from the beginning that they would have to work 
to maintain the high standard of the previous year. The aim of the 1927 Dart staff 
was to produce a book which would win honors and be a credit to our class and our 
Alma Mater. 

Night after night we sallied forth, outlining the book, studying records and any 
useful, available material. We tried to write of the stirring deeds of our athletic teams 
and of the other varied activities in a unique, original manner. 

The work was hard, yet we did not mind it. for it was our last work for our 
Alma Mater. We have tried to make it our masterpiece and we hope we have recorded 
the activities of those "happy joy-filled days" in such a manner that it shall not only 
attain honors through critical recognition, but shall perpetuate throughout our lives 
the fond memories of Dickinson.

The Choral Club was organized early this year under the direction of Mrs. 
Bates, our vocal teacher, and Mr. Richey. Director of the Music Department. A mem- 
bership of nearly seventy gave the Choral Club a larger share in the school life than 
it has enjoyed for several years. At the first meeting. Harold McCune was elected 
president: Mary Johnston, secretary: and Margaret Cornely. librarian. 

The Choral Club meets once a week for practice unless a special occasion demands 
extra rehearsals. The music is interesting, and is taken from the best numbers published 
today. Music for special occasions is prepared also. 

The club made its initial appearance this year in the chapel on Armistice Day. 
when they sang "A Song of Liberty." a number appropriate to the occasion. The 
Christmas Choral service was held in the chapel the last Sunday before Christmas. A 
number of townspeople who knew of the program were in attendance, along with a 
large number of students. There were solos and men's and women's numbers, besides 
the numbers sung by the whole club. The same program had been given at Mulberry 
Methodist Church the week before and at St. Paul's Lutheran that evening. The next 
trip the singers took was to Jersey Shore to sing in the Methodist Church there. Mrs. 
Bates, accompanied by Mr. Richey. sang several solos, one which was particularly en- 
joyed being "My Heart at Thy Dear Voice " from "Samson and Delilah. " Miss Flem- 
ing, of the Expression Department, read several selections and gave some musical read- 
ings, accompanied by Miss Alfhauser. Mr. Richey and Miss Affhauser played a duo- 
piano arrangement of several pieces, notably "Dansc Macabre. " and each rendered 
some solos. ' 

The club worked for some time with the Easter music. "Cherubic Hymn. " 
"Awake Thou That Sleepest " and several other selections. Several churches in this 
vicinity waited for this program, proving what a success the Choral Club has been. 

The Choral Club is full of gratitude to Mr. Richey. the director: Mrs. Bates, our 
coach and teacher: and Miss Affhauser. pianist, without whom little would have been

Tte Orchestra 

An organization that is worthy of much praise and consideration from Dickin- 
sonians. is the orchestra which has responded with untiring effort to the calls of the 
various school activities. 

Professor Owen, the director, has ably directed this organization. His patience 
and wide musical experience have been the basis of the successful year for the orchestra. 
He instilled in every member a musical spirit that worked in harmony with his plans 
for the year's work. This spirit was brought out all through the school year by the 
eagerness to practice: and the hearty cooperation of all the members in general. Only 
those who could play their respective instruments well enough to meet the requirements 
were allowed to play. 

The orchestra this year is the largest in the history of the school. It has a string 
section that is hard to surpass in the secondary schools. 

A program was rendered by the orchestra at the Greater Dickinson Banquet. This 
was the second time they have appeared at this event. Heretofore, a town orchestra was 
engaged. The combination of both classical and popular numbers was well received, 
and added greatly to the enjoyment of the evening. 

The playing of the orchestra during intermission and between acts of the plays 
given by the Dramatic Club is a regular feature. 

The capabilities of the organization has spread beyond the limits of the school; 
for they have often been called upon to give programs both in and out of the city at 
the various clubs and churches. They have received favorable comment from members 
of these organizations and from the press.

"Bob" Pumpbrey breaks the ladies' hearts with his appealing ways. 

And with "Dan" Cornwell every meal, this great heart breaker plays. 

But Harvey Cook we can't leave out: like "Bob " he gets the jancs. 

He does so "Nicely" some girls "Bet" that he will change their names. 

George Foresmun waited for some time upon Miss Wilson's crowd. 
And that is why that happy bunch is always laughing loud. 

"Joe" Becbdel. with his cheery fun. serves well the athletes; 

But one must figure mighty hard to find how much he eats. 

The kitchen girls love Ceorgie Gibson, he's a happy lad. 

For when they feel the dullest care, he always makes them glad. 

Wendell Stake supplies Professor Owen with hot muffins and tea. 
Now. I ask you. is there another waiter so brave as he? 

McCune can catch a dish of spuds that's thrown the table's length 

For that's the way the waiters pass their food and utilize their strength. 

There are four who often substitute and rush the trays about. 

They're Cleaver, Williams. "Pogue", and Hunt who help the waiters out. 

As some eat eggs who like the white, while others like the yolk. 

They wait on crabs and prudish cranks, and many kindly folk. 
But still each waits and tries to keep a happy, smiling face. 

And wish that those who eat the food would try to take his place. 

But there are those he learns to love, from these he hates to part 

And sometimes when he's changed about he feels a cut at heart. 

On Sunday night he has most fun like sunshine in a fog. 

He feeds the socializing bunch and stuffs the hungry mouths. 

There's lots of fun. and hardship too. in waiting on the bunch. 

But ohl it's great to hear the groan when hash is brought for lunch. 
Now lest too much is said of these, the great Hash-slinging crew. 

I'll stop and ask that you will think of those who wait on you.

Angel Factory Group 

The Angel Factory 

Far from Egypt's azure sky beaming on her limc-scarred. myslcry-saiurjicd Pyra- 
mids, quaintly sequestered in the undulating shadow of its sister domicile there stands a 
particular edifice around which there clusters a perplexing and mystifying atmosphere. 
Unlike its far-flung neighbor it assumes its rank among the habitations of mankind — 
it too is steeped in untold talcs and an air of total mystery. Few comprehend that 
such a profound mystery pervades the southeast-campus barracks where only the pious 
and sedate participate in convivial scenes. No manlike Sphinx holds silent vigil 
outside its scarred and initialed walls but within its antique interior the muffled foot- 
steps of two stalwart. "Grand Keaglcs " with vigilant eye. patrol the exits and diminish 
the feasibility of nocturnal promenades. What epithet shall we apply to this austere 
dwelling where one becomes affected as Poe expressed it with "a morbid acuteness of 
the senses " .' Where pcrambulative attainments become decadent from lack of utilization 
and spots are in vogue. In its infancy the "Wise Men" cleverly termed it the Angel 
Factory and years have failed to obliterate the many-faceted cognomen. To the em- 
ployees of the wheel-less factory within the confines of its sanguine environment, it 
radiates fond memories. But gone, irrevocably, like Rome's vanishing and departed

characterized this exclusive sanctuary. No more do those staid old halls re-echo with 
the lucid notes of "Sweet Adeline " but in its stead the doleful strains of the "Prisoner's

Song" ring out their challenge on the midnight atmosphere. Unanswered they pene- 
trate the somnolent pastime of some educated comatose and spots become obvious. The 
martyrs who are daily incarcerated saunter reluctantly into the presence of that obvious 
personage, the Dean, the victims of a diabolical intrigue. They are greeted by a 
verbal chastisement for their vocal attainments. 

Here the members of the "Red Commune" hold their midnight repast which at 
the very sight causes the mouth to water and the esophagus to dilate. To say that a 
spirit of "hail fellow well met" prevails would belittle the fellowship that is prevalent 
in this mythical abode. 

Bidding farewell to this brick-clad rendezvous, within whose sacred precincts 
"lives of great men all remind us." we may go forth like Ponce de Leon seeking a 
magical fountain that does not exist. But as we trek our way past the milestone to 
our cherished port of ideals, even when our ships come in. we shall look back with 
fond regrets to the "old days" and the lasting friendships and associations that were 
ours in "factory days" and long for the fellowship of that hectic crew which fashioned 
an invisible tie and bound together as loyal Dickinsonians that heterogeneous aggrega- 
tion of angels. That every would-be harpist will look back with deep affection upon 
this eighth masterpiece of civilization, where congeniality dominated and they met their 
first challenge to honor, is obvious.

THE 1927 DART 

Senior Class History 

HERE'S to the Class of 1927, the largest and finest class that the dear 
old "School Upon the Hilltop" has honored with its distinguishing 
mark of approval. From its infancy back in '23, there appeared signs 
of its worthwhileness, and later additions to its ranks has more than 
fulfilled that promise. We can point with a great deal of pardonable pride 
to the class's achievements in dramatics, music, athletics, and scholarship. 

This famous class was organized in September, 1926. Foster Panne- 
baker was chosen President, Mitchell Hammond, Vice-President; Alyce 
Crago, Secretary; and George Hohenshelt, Treasurer. Miss Marion Evelyn 
Fleming was chosen as class adviser. 

During the year of 1926, we won the cup given to the class scoring the 
highest number of points in the inter-class contests. The girls shared in the 
triumphs by decisively defeating all opponents. 

A new class staff was elected at the beginning of the school year of 
1927. This staff was headed by the famous Joseph Bechdel of Beech Creek 
as President; Vice-President, James Johnson; Secretary, Margaret Cornely; 
Treasurer, Earl McKay. 

The sleigh-ride of this year was even better than that of last year. 
The feature of the day was the wholesale onslaught by the class of '28 in 
a desperate attempt to keep us from our chicken and waffles. The attack 
was fiercely overwhelmed by the Seniors, who forced the Juniors to retreat, 
sans skin and many articles of clothing. The victorious Seniors then es- 
sayed forth in quest of the ambrosial banquet, with the odor of complete 
victory in their nostrils. The strenuous beginning made the entire affair 
a greater success than would otherwise be expected. Perhaps, it would be 
well to add that friendly relations were restored between the classes at the 
banquet tendered by the Juniors on our return. 

As our eyes gaze in retrospection over the four brief years of our 
history, we see trials endured, victories won, and many happy moments 
that have graced our career. As the years pass by, we will look back more 
and more fondly upon the memories of our past association with the best 

class of all— The Class of 1927.

WE the Class of 1927, being of unusually sound mind, extraordi-

wish to leave to those following in our well-trodden footsteps, not only our

First Witch "Round about the caldron go; 
In the poisoned entrails throw. 
Double, double, toil and trouble; 
Fire burn and caldron bubble." 
Enter three students and the spirit of '27.

you, by that which you profess, answer what 1 ask."

Spirit of '27 -Call forth those spirits which will pierce the dark clouds of 
the future and reveal to these students just what is to happen to their 
classmates and to themselves in the days to come. 
(All gather around caldron.) 

First Witch — Attend you ! and do not speak lest by your speaking you break 
the charm. 

Through the gloom I see your class president and lo, he stands 
upon the steps of the XXTiite House. Joe has been elected President 
of the United States and has taken for his platform. Later Fridav

a career. Should she be a minister's wife or a pianist? 

Spirit of '27 -Stop not you until the tale is told. What of the rest? 

First Witch — Behold I see a group of stalwart men, each holding a rod of 
power. Stewart Mitchell is holding a sausage signifying his noble call- 
ing, that of a Baltimore butcher. Leon Bryner holds in his hand a 
piece of chalk; one of his own production. Even in school Leon pro- 
duced considerable chalk, especially in English IV class. I can see 
no more.

(Two of the three students "pass out" and the spirit of '21 turns pale.) 

(Students weakly) — Tell the worst, thou sluggards. 

(Witches gather around caldron, uttering strange sounds.) 

Third Witch — Harken ye! For I see before me Alyce Crago, Margaret Gute- 
lius, Gladys Long, and Burnetta Heinley. These girls are creating 
quite a sensation in "Jack" Rich's Scandals. 

Third Witch — Look you — attend. The maiden approaching in uniform so 
white is none else but Ethna Kurtz, head nurse of Pedunk Hospital. 
Following near her is Hazel Sheffer, recuperating after a strenuous 
run as Prima Donna in "Seven Come Eleven." 

Th'ird Witch — But hark ! I hear strains of hushed music in the distance. 
Louder — louder still it comes. Alas! I comprehend; it is the delicate 
touch of Dorothy Edler's violin playing in Freddie Field's orchestra. 
Fred in spite of his smallness of stature is making a great racket 
throughout the country. 

Third Witch — Appearing before my eyes is Francis Neff, the celebrated in- 
ventor of the age. He has just equipped Dickinson Seminary with his 
new invention; namely, a shoulder brace which will enable one to 
sleep comfortably in class. 

Third Witch — Gone, gone, my magic spell. 
The rest my comrades true must tell. 

Spirit of '27 — The future of the rest I crave, thou fiery sprites, speak on. 

First Witch — (stirring vigorously the ingredients of the caldron) — Thou 
dos't demand and I will answer thee. The apparition of Maisy Brorn- 
age appears from the depths of the dark, grim, caldron revealing her 
as a model of Bellas, Hess and Co. for stylish stouts. 

Students — More, more! 

First Witch — Hush, for now within this caldron, I see figures in startling 
reality. Here appears Gilbert MacVaugh. He advances with that slow, 
steady tread which was, even in Seminary days, one of his dumbest 
characteristics. MacVaugh, having been disappointed in his first (?)

love affair at "Sem" has turned against his fellow men (and fellow 
women), and is now living the life of a hermit in Muncy Valley. 
First Witch (continues) — Even as that vision vanishes others appear. 

(Witch hesitates) "Yes, it is they. Ruth Rces, May Bruhukcr, Marga- 
ret Crandall. and Myra White are private (very private!) secretaries 
of the Nye-Hohenshclt Foothall Co. 

Second Witch (advancing with faltering steps)— The charm doth brighter 
glow, disclosing Franklin Van Antwerp and Walter Woodruff. These 
boys have just arrived home from their trip to Checkos Lovakia where 
they are said to have discovered a form of beast who disappeared in 
the year of Caesar's death. However, it was not a pony. 

Second Witch (looking closer into the kettle) — The scene has changed to 
a serene spot at Halls Station where jane Castner has opened an art 
shop of "modern anitques." Emalinc Dittmar helps to increase trade 
by serving delicious meals to the tourists who come from abroad. 

Second Witch — The charm is disappearing. Darkness gathers about the 
cavern revealing no more of the future. All has vanished, but no- 
very faintly I see the renowned Gladys Decker and Robert Hartman. 
Hartman is a life guard at the Beach of Atlantic City he has been of 
great service in saving many empty canoes which otherwise would 
have drifted with the tide. Gladys Decker, the illustrious Editor-in- 
Chief of the Union, has departed from this realm of work to that of 
art. While touring Italy, this Madamoiselle gained her inspiration 
for her notorious masterpiece, "Loves Young Dream ' which is now 
exhibited in Dickinson Seminary gymnasium. 

Spirit of '27 — Where are the rest? Stop not, you grim and groozy hags, 
until the tale is told. 

Third Witch — The charm is dimmer growing. 

Spirit of '27— Haste, thee black and midnight creatures! 

Third Witch— Ah\ The charm now brighter grows, revealing to my sight — 
Sarah Lehman who is touring the world on a free dramatic lecture 
tour. Her subject is "Keep that school-girl complexion. " 

Third Witch — Behold another of Dickinson I see! William, otherwise known 
as "Bill" Glosscr, the modern Lavaisier, has just discovered how to 
reach Mars by the decomposition of oxygen. 

(Students wander anxiously about.) 

Round and round the kettle go, 
Figs and dates into it throw. 

Third Witch — Hush — appearing vaguely in the distance is a shadowy image. 

First Witch — Other images do then emerge; the first is Louis Shapiro, edi- 
tor of the "Shoppers Guide," a well known paper of Newberry. Under 
his new supervision great progress has been made as it now includes 
four pages instead of two and it can be secured four days a week by 
depositing two cents in advance. 

Spirit of '21 — And who is the second image? 

First Witch — The second was Eleanor Longacre, an eminent spinster who 
broadcasts weather reports every Friday evening from station O. S.

(Students stir uneasily.) 

Second Witch— Hear] Hear! Miller, Hammond, Pannehaker and Gibson 
have been elected officers of the Central Pennsylvania Conference. 
Here is another. Behold a dancing figure advances. Swiftly and 
gracefully it glides toward us. It is Clarence Briscoe. He has become an 
interpretative dancer! (he interprets not only Spring but all the sea- 

In the caldron I see a book the title of which is "Why Track Men 
Should Never Marry." It is written by George Foresman. 

(Students show signs of interrupting but the Witch hurries on.) Ah! now 
appears John Hanson. John has done very well and has developed 
what seemed to be a very promising talent. He is president of one of 
the largest Chewing Gum corporations of this country. 
Here is another — Inez Ingersoll has gained great renown as a fortune 
teller. She is now traveling in Europe studying the lure of the Ro- 
manian gypsies. 

Third Witch (waving wand over the caldron) — Harken, students, to the 
fate of Virginia Graham! She is now manager of the "Dutch Slipper," 
a prospering beauty parlor, situated in the city of North East, Pa. 
Miss Graham is assisted by Helen Seaman, whose specialty is water 
waving. Yet another appears before me. Edward Fuller is preparing 
to meet Tunney. He received training while fighting McKay at "Sem." 
Thomas Martin is Fuller's professional manager. 
Spirit of '27 — But there were more, many more in our class — 
First Witch—Yes, yes! The future clears and I see Elizabeth McVey and 
Ruth Williams. These girls have continued the work encouraged at 
Seminary and are now recognized authorities in the field of Home Eco- 
nomics. Next I see a detective — quite a prosperous detective. Ah! 
yes it can be no other than Faulkner Lewis. He must have gained the 
supreme inspiration from "Slats." A book! Behold a book appears 
within the caldron! This book is very thick and must therefore have 
a very popular theme in order that it should merit so many ages. Ver- 
ily, I ask what more familiar title could Ellis Joseph have chosen for 
his book than "How to get Nervous When Giving an Oration." Lo! More 
of the future reveals itself. "Katie" Morrison, Mary Feglcy and Helen 
Esibill are now appearing in the famous "Redpath (Chautauqua," which 
is at present, under the management of Courtney Baird. "Katie" lec- 
tures on "The Follies of Love." Mary Fegley, at each afternoon per- 
formance, instructs the aged in the latest steps of the "Charleston." 
Helen Esibill impersonates Caesar in the famous Shakespearian play, 
"Julius Caesar." This drama is usually presented the night before 
the Chautauqua leaves town. 

First Witch — 1 have finished. 

Second Witch (creeping slowly around the caldron) — Forsooth, I see Clar- 
ence Winegardner. He has risen to unforetold heights with the result 
that he is now tennis champion of the United States. 

Second Witch — Again a mist o'er shadows all — but lo — it lifts and now a 
see Earl Z. McKay. Earl has given up athletics and everything in the 
Long-run and is now manager of a chain of "Mac's Cafes" which ex- 

One Hundred Nine 

THE 1927 DART 

tend over the greater part of Squedunk County. Walter Stubnaii, out of 
loyalty to his home town, is one of the "Men of Steel." Franklyn 
Spiese is at present the swimming instructor at Wilson College. It 
is not known how long he will hold this position, however, because of 
the riots caused by the popularity of his classes. Spiese advises that 
the motto taken by said classes be "Vi'e love our teacher." 

Third Witch (stirring ingredients with a large spoon) — I see Robert Kle- 
wans as a shoe merchant. He has instinctively followed in the foot- 
steps of his father and is at this moment, in all probability, trying shoes 
on some of the Dickinsonians. Ah, now I see James Johnson. It is 
not clear just what James is doing, but is it not natural that a James 
Johnson from Wisconsin should uork in a lumberyard? 
Evelyn Kennedy is now taking the place of Dr. and Mrs. William 
North, who have retired from active service as Missionaries in China. 

Second Witch — Be not dismayed. Your hopes and prayers are about to be 
realized. One of your number has accomplished the impossible! Ned 
Jones is an honest politician. 

List ye! for now I see before me Elizabeth Guthrie. "Betty" is to be 
congratulated upon her splendid secretarial work while in the employ- 
ment of Russell Shearer who was at that time writing his scientific 
treatise which explains exactly "How it can was." 
Hark! I hear the sound of an aeroplane. It has landed and from its 
cockpit jumps John Schuchart. Ever since childhood Johnnie has been 

searching for the home of Santa Claus. 

The charm is almost gone, but hold — I see even now some of your 
number. Here are Ruth Cupp and Margaret T. Rich. These famous 
psychologists have reached great eminence through their numerous 
debates on the popular subject "Resolved, That There Should Be A 
Neurone Group in the League of Nations." 

Second Witch — The charm is gone. I have no more power. 

First Witch (throwing some magic powder into the fire) — I see your friend, 
Fred Meyers. 

">X'ith all he wishes and aspires. 
Short days for a farmer he desires. 
Also a pension when he retires," 

Third Witch — The future again is dark. Our powers have ended. We can 
tell no more. 

(Witches place cover on caldron after which they cross to the place 
where the students are seated and bow low before them.) 

First Witch — "Aye, all this is so," with malice toward none, but charity 
toward all, we have revealed the future. If you all live long enough 
you will see the truth of our prophecies. 
(The Witches vanish). 

(Students, talking excitedly, walk rapidly toward the Seminary in order that 
they might make their report to the other students.)

present day it has narrowed down to a half hour "thrill" on Tuesday 


For you who have never crossed the portals of the chapel on this en- 
chanting errand and who are certainly curious as to what goes on there, I 
will try to relate a few happenings which are typical of this wonderful awe- 
inspiring, or I might say heart-inspiring, "Social." 

The doors at either end of the chapel are guarded by "duty" teachers 
and you pass into this blissful state only with their permission. The eager 
young man bashfully requests the privilege of chatting with his favorite 
maid. The maid is then paged by Betty or Lorraine. She comes tripping 
out to meet the eager lad and is escorted to one of the "prescribed" rows, — 
not the last row. Beware! The last row seems to be haunted by memories 
of former happy couples, but their bliss is denied the lads and lassies of 
the "Sem ' today. This row seems to have some special attraction as many 
try to secure a seat there, but few succeed. 

You might ask: "What do they find to talk about?" There is always 
the weather topic when other words fail you, but that is seldom. Listen, if 
you will, to a few conversations: "Now, Harvey, you're kidding me." "Not 
at all. Ruth. I don't want to take you from 'Granny' " — " 'Dick,' don't try 
to hold my hand, the teacher will see you." — 'Hebe,' how can you love me 
so much'?" 

Do you see what 'Social " means to the Seminary students? It is the 
regret of the students that it comes only once a week and lasts only one-half 
hour. Many of the "social cases"' of the past years have come to a happy 
climax but, much to the regret of Dr. Long, "Social"' has added only a 
few to the marital circle during the more recent years. To remedy this 
condition the Seminary, as a '"Match Factory,"" should send out "Safety"' 
matches, and in order to do this we must have better "Social"' conditions.

It is fitting that we pause a moment ere we close, and join 
our voices in one last word of regret. 'Tis called fare- 
well. Dear Alma Mater, we, the class of '27, leave 
Thee slowly with measured tread, and with sweet 
memories of "those happy, joy filled days in 
Dickinson. " We have been taught to cherish 
truth and right, as the essence of prog- 
ress, and have been prepared to face 
the great unknown future. We hope 
that, in after years, as we thumb 
the pages of this, our last work, 
which has indeed been a 
pleasure, that zephyrs of 
the noble spirit of the 
"Sem" will breathe 
to us a name adorn- 
ed with virtue 
worthy of the

Always Closely Related 

Dickinson Seminary was founded by Rev. B. H. Crever of the college 
class of 1840, and the following Dickinsonians were Presidents of the Sem- 
inary: Bishop Thomas Bowman. 1837; J. H. Dashiel, 1840: W. L. Spotts- 
wood, 1841 : Bishop W. P. Eveland. 1892; and John W. Long, 1907; all per- 
haps, but three. The Dickinsonians who have taught in the Seminary are 
too numerous to name. Professors Cornwell, Skeath, Van Dyke, Markle and 
Merman being the present representatives. 

Many Seminary graduates have gone to Dickinson for their college 
course, and many of them are now in the College.
